SHB TAUGHT BEAUTY.
THE story of Mme. Ituppert, famous
on two continents as the proprietor
of a face bleach, and who died a
fortnight ago in a little Missouri
town, reads like a romance. Her
maiden name was Amy Sbclton, and she
was born of humble parentage in the town
where she died, growing to young woman
hood In her native place. Then, being
full ot energy and very ambitious, she
starled out like a boy to seek her fortune.
She found it very quickly in St. Louis, her
first slopping place.
Here she became acquainted with an old
lady, who had long treasured the formula
of asecret facial wash hi wblchshebadgreat
faith. Bbe persuaded Mlss'Shellon to un
dertake Hie manufacture and sale of the
bleach, and so well did tho girl mnnago
tliceuterprisc that in ten years she had buiit
up a reputation both Lere and In Europe
ami a fortune. She lectured everywhere
on the care of the complexion, and counted
among her customers many crowned heads.
Herdeatti at thccarlyugeof thirty-two was
from consumption, superinduced. It Is be
lieved, largely by her constant travel and
continuous work. Of her handsome-fortune
but littlo remained when the end
came, her open hand to all who came In
contact with her, making it easy to dis
pose of even her generous Income.

nF LATE all sorts of new Ideas havo
Lceu thought of for portieres and
I J draperies. People are apparently"
' becoming tired of the hangings ot
chenille, plush or brocade and are
hinting for somethingnew.
Portieres made of woven silk rags are
produced by exactly the same method
as the onhtiary rag carpet. The silk
is cut or torn Into strips of even width
and any haphazard length, and are even
lapped upon each other and sewed together
without regard to color, except that two
pieces of the same color arc Joined to each
other. If there are few or many of some
unusual and brilliant color they must be
scattered so as to appear at intervals over
the entire surrace. Any weaver of rag
carpeting and they can be easily found
either in town or country will take the
sewed rags and weave them Into a panel
of the required length and width, and this
is usually about three and a half feet in
width by seven in length. The warp
should be of coarse linen thread, either
black or dark blue.
