The best way to clean rusty needles
is tn run them up and down In the

stick the needles In the ground, then
pull them out. Have the needlea

hold of to extract the needle from thB
earth This method ls even better

TEA TABLE EQUIPAGE
MANY AND VARIED ARE THE
PRETTY THINGS OFFERED.
Modern Hostess Should Have No
Trouble In Seouring Perfect Ap?
pointment*? Designers Cer?
tainly Have Done Their Best.
To almost every woman the tea
table ls a matter of especial pride,
and to have her tea table equipped
with the moat charming furnishings
cr with novel and amusing ones ls
one of the great ambitions of her do?
mes-! ic life. There are bo many at?
tractive articles for the tea table that
lt is indeed difficult to choose among
thptn, and there are so many attractive
styli ? of furnishing lt that almost all
noni' n have pangs of regret when
they select one atyle only to find after
il articles have been purchased
thai there are so many pretty things
to be bought In quite a different stylo
thai will not at all accord with what
thev have already purchased.
For the Colonial tea table there ls a
wonderful old Revere silver. Of course
only the woman of great wealth can
hope to obtain original plecea of thia
silver, but copies of it are made by
modern silversmiths The silver mads
by hand, with Ita wonderful color that
no machine made pieces can attain, is
the desire of all women who really are
connoisseurs In the equipment of a
Then there la the Colonial china lu
ita many quaint designs and adorable
shapes, all of lt expensive, but ao
delightful that lt ls well worth the In?
vestment. And the glass for such a
tea table should be the fine old cut
glass. Just a little cut, not heavy and
glaring like the modern plecea.
If one wants to have a tea table in
the Kngltah style there la some new
ohina In the old Chelsea pattern,
white with black bands, on which
there are rose garland decorations.
This china harmonizes with the paint?
ed furniture and the black ground
chintzes and brocades that are now
so fashionable. With lt the Sheffield
plate plecea are In perfect accord.
And the Dresden tea table, wltb Its
quaint little pieces ao full of color, ao
charming in design! And the silver?
wonderful little hand made pieces,
delicately carved and brought over a
few at a time, perhaps aa the souve?
nirs of happy summers spent in Euro?
Best with a cream four tablespoon?
fuls of butter and half a cupful of
sugar, add two well-beaten eggs, four
tablespoonfuls of milk, one cupful of'
flour, one teaspoonful of baking pow-!
der, one teaspoonful of essence of
lemon or vanilla and one cupful of
finely chopped peanuts. Drop from the
point of a teasp.xm on to buttered pa?
per, leaving a good margin around
each to prevent running together.
Stlcl: a spilt peanut on top of each
cookie and bake in a medium oven.
Banana Cream Pie.
Line plate with crust and bake In
hot oven, then cover with thin slices
of banana (two will do nicely for ona
pie), then till with a custard made
with two cups of milk, two table?
spoons of flour, yolks of two eggs, one
teaspoon of vanilla. Cook In double
boiler until thick, adding extract aa
you remove from fire. Pour over the
bananas. Use the stiffly beaten whites
! for the meringue, and put in oven Just
I long enough to brown nicely.

Pains All Over!
"You are welcome," says Mrs. Nora Guffey, of Broken
Arrow, Okla., "to use my letter in any way you want to,
if it will induce some suffering woman to try Cardui. I had
pains all over, and suffered with an abscess. Three phy?
sicians failed to relieve me. Since taking Cardui, I am in
better health than ever before, and that means much to me,
because 1 suffered many years with womanly troubles, of
different kinds. What other treatments I tried, helped me
for a few days only."
Don't wait, until you are taken down sick, before tak?
ing care of yourself. The small aches and pains, and other
symptoms of womanly weakness and disease, always mean
worse to follow, unless given quick treatment
You would always keep Cardui handy, if you knew
what quick and permanent relief it gives, where weakness
and disease of the womanly system makes life seem hard
to bear. Cardui has helped over a million wc nen. Try it
