To Make Clothes Last.
Never in home dressmaking cut any
.kind of woolen goods until it has
been sponged, as cheap material is
often not dampened before it is sold.
To do this properly at L^me get an
ironing board or table the width of
the guods, and cover with tightly
stretched calico. Spread your cloth
wrong side up cover with a linen cloth
that has been well rung out in water,
and then press with a hot iron the
lengthwise of the goods. Never let
the iron be still, and while pressing
allow the goods to fall evenly onto a
clean cloth placed on the floor.
New Shirt Waists.
The nev/ shirt waists are nearly all
in light colors and in white, many
showing a printed floral design and all
bearing lace in one way or another.
The large square lace trimmed collar
is still popular, the sailor knot be
neath showing lace incrust, while the
tucked sleeves form a puff at the
wrist. The" new woolen muslin is
an excellent material for the pretty
new blouse, which is an essential
feature of milady's wardrobe, and
this comes in plain and printed, show
ing the most delicate combinations of
color. A pretty blouse in pale yellow
Tuscan silk had the finely tucked col
lar and sleeves of material, trimmed
with lace of the same shade in ap
plique, while the tiny vest of finely
tucked white muslin was crossed with
narrow bands of pale yellow velvet
fastened on the left with small
buckles.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Woman Cousin Taker.
It was through the death of her hus
band that Mrs. Daniel A. Button of
Pontiac, Mich., became the first wom
an census enumerator a number of
years ago. She had been in the habit
o? arranging and copying the work of
her husband,' v J.O was one of the
deputies appointed for census pur
poses. v When left alone Mrs. Button
applied for her husband's position,
in due time receiving the appointment.
It was decided by the government
after receiving her reports that the
manufacturing statistics should be
compiled for the first time in the his
tory of the census, and this work was
placed in her hands. Mrs. Button
found it a difficult task, as she had
to visit personally every manufactory,
large or small, in the district, and as
certain the amount and cost of ma
terial used, the value of the articles
purchased, the expense of production,
and the gain or loss per year. Upon
sending in her final report to the su
perintendent of the census bureau
she received from him a letter of com
mendation for the excellence of her
work, and a deputy mrrshal's badge
white silk in blue letters.
One of the Chinese Empress's Cloaks.
"There'll be an opera cloak worn
here this winter that will make every
woman in town turn green with envy,"
said a Washington woman who had
just returned from a visit in New
York." "'.'I saw If- last week, "and if
I cculd have pulled my soul up by the
foots I think I'd have traded it off for
that dream of a cloak. The woman
who bought it will spend the season
here. I saw it at a tea-I won't say
whose-in New York City.
"The woman who sold it is th? sister
of a naval officer-a surgeon, I think.
The brother brought it from China,
and-whisper-its loot. He found it
in the Forbidden City, where a lot of
Russian soldiers who were looking
for secret doors and hiding places in
the walls of a palace had flung it on
the floor and were trampling it under
foot. He brought it away to keep it
from being carried off by some care
less and dishonest person.

The Bloasn Beautiful.
The reign of the blouse is by no
means over; in fact, this long-suffering
and oft misunderstood garment seems
to have taken on a new lease of life
for the winter. For wearing under
neath heavy coats the blouse has not
its equal for comfort and if the coat
is removed indoors, it is quite as nice
looking as anything can be. Most
dressmakers are sending home with
every complete costume a soft silk
or velvet blouse which tones with the
material, so that it can be worn with
the skirt on occasions when the bod
ice proper is not wanted, and yet
look right with It The days when
blouse and skirt presented a violent
contrast to each other are past, except
wedded to this form of toilette. Sev
eral of the latest velvet blouses have
narrow little fluted basques, which
give them quite a Jaunty look, and pre
sent our old friend, the blouse, under
a new and more dignified aspect. "Very
charming are deep cream-tinted satin
or panne blouses, trimmed with bands
of sable, and encrusted with ivory
lace. These are in great vogue for
smart luncheons, and one such was
further embellished with antique sil

a wide centre box pleat down the
front, bordering with sable tails on
either side, and two cravat ends of

chains and heavy-headed pins.-New

It is due to a woman's effort that a
tablet has been erected as a memorial
to Margaret Fuller, who was drowned
many years ago off the Isle of Pines,
Long Island, and on this spot the tab
let to her has been placed. Margaret
Fuller's real influence among women
is only beginning to be understood.
Hundreds of women who today are
reaping some results of her movement
Ecarceij Lucre of her existence, or if
they do, it is merely as a member of
the set of literary persons in Concord,
Mass., when Emerson, Alcott and
those men were a unique coterie. As
a matter of fact, Margaret Fuller was
far less associated with them than
seems to be thought. She did indeed
kn?w them, as those men admired the
type of women for which she stood,
believing, as has since been demon
strated, that woman was capable of
""mbracing more opportunities than
v/ere than at arded her.
Margaret. Fuller was In th* best
sense of the word a broad-minded, In?
tellectual woman, says a writer in the
Home Magazine. The men of her
day considered her their mental equal,
and. what was equally to the point,
treatel her as such. She lectured and
wrote, and her opii Ijns were heard
Her tragic death off the Long Is

of time much that she did has been
It is Mrs. Lillie Devereaux Blake,
who has at last done something to
perpetuate her memory by raising
money for the tablet that was put
in place a few weeks ago. Although
she has long admired Margaret Fuller,
it was not until several years ago
that Mrs. Blake, who spends her sum
mers on the Isle of Pines, found that
she was within a short distance of
the place where the former was
drowned. Mrs. Blake immediately set
about having a memorial of some sort
erected there. With energy that has
remained unflagging she has interest
ed persons in the work, has held sales,
given teas> and resorted to other simi
lar means to raise money, with the
result that this season she found
there was enough, and with simple
ceremonies the tablet was unveiled.
Rights of Turkish Women.
The Turkish Princess who has be
gun in London a sort of crusade
against the wrongs of her country
women declares that Turkish
women would have all the freedom
they wanted if the laws which have
been made in their favor were only
observed. No woman can be bought
or sold or given in slavery according to
law, but thousands of them are at
this very day in slavery. A law exists
which demands a girl's consent to her
marriage, but thousands of them an
nually are forced into marriages by
their parents. A woman can take
legal steps for a divorce if her hus
band does not maintain her accord
ing to his rank and wealth, or if his
parents mistreat her. But the women
are few who dare to take advantage
of this law. Again, there is a curious
religious law, which says a man muse
house each of his wives so that she
shall not see the smoke from tbe resi
dences of the others. But in reality
most of the men keep all their wives
under the same roof and allow them
to fight out their jealouses as best
The women of Turkey could be well
educated if the Sultan and the reli
gious teachers-who are his tools
would permit. Bui they have recently
banished the English governesses from
Turkish homes, and they oppose tho
foreign schools. Catholic and Protes
tant, which have been established
among them. The Princess speaks
very highly of the American school
for Girls at Constantinople, which, she
says, is liberally patronized by the
daughters of advanced Mussulmen,
notwithstanding the opposition of the
Sultan. Tbe priests try to keep the
people, especially the women, in ig
norance. These priests are in the
employ of thc government, they are
the official surveyers of the wards,
and delegated by the municipality to
arrange the marriage contracts. But
the priest acts in this resepct more
as a magistrate than as an official of
the church, nd the marriage is mere
ly a businel _ontnict. If the parents'
pay him an extra sum he will deliver
a long prayer at tho end, but other
wise not. " The bride and bridegroom
hold separate fetes in honor of their
marriage. If either family bas a large
house the fetes are celebrated on the
same day in different apartments; but
if not, they occur on different days.
The only thing II which the women
score in Turkey is in the "dot." The
husband must give a dowry to his
wife-if he marries her by law-but
what the wife brings remains siill her
own. Her husband has no legal right
to appropriate it. lt is probable, how
ever, that the poor Turkish woman,
as a general thing, fails to enjoy this
right, as well as so many olhers which
are hers in law, but not in reality.

Capita! Punishment in Japan.
j To those who do not fully appreciate
the revolution In Japanese manners
! and customs, it may well seem strange
! that the sentence of the murderer of
j Iioshi Toru, the ex-minister, should
j be imprisonment for life with hard la
j bor. They might have expected
j "something with boiling oil in it." Sir
. Rutherford Alcock, the first British
( minister to Japan, writing some forty
j years ago, dwelt upon the severity of
I the Japanese laws. "The code is prob
. ably the bloodiest in the world, for
death is the penalty of most offenses.
' The Japanese seems to proceed on the
principle that he who violates one law
' will violate any other, and that a will
' ful violator is unworthy of life." Un
? der this regime it was considered a
. special privilege to be allowed to exe
! cute oneself and commit hari-kari, but
I this was reserved for people of rank.
I The common people had to be content
j with the executioner's sword.
j Under the criminal code which came
j into force in 1GS2, and which is found
j ed on the code of Napoleon, death by
hanging is provided as a penalty for
I certain offenses, but of recent years
j it has become rarer and may now be
j considered obsolete. Probably the
j Japanese, with their traditional con
tempt for death regard penal servitude
I fer life as a greater punishment. For
I merly no conviction was made except
on confession by the prisoner, and
there was an abundant use of torture.
That, of course, was officially abolish
ed many years ago, but it was prac
ticed occasionally at a much later date,
and a case is known in which torture
was undoubtedly applied by the police
at one of the treaty ports in 1S91.

The Ironing oT Tablecloths.
All housekepers like to have table
cloths ironed with only one fold
through thc centre. To keep them
after this laundering they are best
rolled on a stick. Each tablecloth hag
iis own stick, as long as the cloth ip
wide when folded lengthwise through
Die centre, thc sticks being neatly
covered with several folds of flannel
and afterwards with muslin. When thp
cloth is ironed in one fold, one end ts
evenly pinued to the stick and tKfe
cloth loosely rolled on it, so that ;it
will not crease. Afterwards the whoTe
is slipped into a long, narrow bag and
laid in the linen closet, or in the long
drawer of the sideboard, if that is kept
for that purpose. -:
Valuable Washing .Suggestions,
A housekeeper makes some valuable
suggestions about washing linen em
broidered with wash silks. Embrolj^
cred articles should bc washed one at
a time by immersing in warm suds,
not hot, made of pure soap; the soap
should be castil? or some white(*H??>.
scented variety. Add a teaspoonful
cf borax to the rinsing water, and the?
article should not be rubbed, but
simply rubbed up and down, and it
should bc rinsed in several waters.
Embroidered articles should be
squeezed, not rubbed. To dry them
wrap in a clean cloth, and remove it.
in a few minutes and dry quickly in
the air, but not in the sun. When
perfectly dry lay the embroidery face
down on a smooth, fine sheet, and
carefully draw the edges into place.
Dampen the linen sections with a fine
sponge, pass a hot iron over the cloth
in the direction of thc grain of the ma
terial. The iron should be hot and
should move very quickly.
Thc Blending lhi*ke4.
A small sum spent on a strong
wicker basket at my green grocer's
and then a coat of enamel paint to
hide the fruit stains on it, added to a
very little trouble, and the result was
a most useful and commodious mend
If you have not started a mending
basket hitherto, let me recommend
you to do so at once. There is no
doubt about the exceeding value of
"the stitch in time." but when once
you let torn articles be put away till
a convenient season arrives for mend
ing them, the chances are that they
will bc used again unmended, thereby
very likely becoming damaged beyond
repair. If, however, you systematical
ly inspect the clothes when they re
turn from the laundry, and consign
all that are in any way damaged to
the mending basket, then when you
are able to spend a little time in mend
ing you will find your progress ex
pedited and your task lightened by
having all your work at hand, instead
of having to search for it in various
parts of the house.
Directly an article is mender" it
should be put away in its proper place,
and supposing it to be one of a set of
garments, it should be laid at the bot
tom of a heap of its fellows, for then,
if their owner always takes from the
top, each garment of the set will be
worn in turn.
Never fall into the errcr of thinking
that the torn lace or embroidery! on
an undergarment won't be seen, and
I therefore, don't matter. Fineness of
1 trimming and daintiness of texture
! are minor matters, and may be dis
j pensed with cherfully by those with
small means, but perfect cleanliness
? and wholesomeness are indispensable

Oatmeal Fritters-One cup of cold
cooked oatmeal, one egg, two-thirds of

skillet. Cover, and when brown turn.
Ten minutes will cook them.
String Eean and Tomato Salad
Peel the tomatoes, cut out a round at
the stem end, scoop out the seeds and

beans with French dressing. Have
the vegetables both ice cold when
serving, in either case.

water about ten minutes, or until you
can pierce them easily with a fine
skewer without breaking them. Dr^in
and shake carefully until dry. Pour
over them one tablespoonful of but

EATING BETWEEN MEALS.
The Apple ls Par-Excellence the Food
For This Period.
The practice of eating between 1
meal? ls sternly discountenanced by
many well meaning indivuduals who '
are of dyspeptic habit, or perhaps do
better without any additional nourish- !
ment in the course of a sedentary life. '
They are apt to enforce obedience
from their children on this point on
the ground that what suits the moth
cr's digestion must be equally suitable
to the digestive apparatus of the chil
dren. The case is very different.
Growing children of active disposition
are apt to be hungry most of the time
and are willing to acept the proffer
of anything '"good to eat" (from their
own point of view) at almost any hour.
Indeed, the boy who is getting his
growth rapidly frequently eats as if
his legs were hollow, or as if he had
as many cavities to be filled as those
that occur in the complex stomach o?
a ruminant. ?
It was on this account doubtless
that the immortal "autocrat" laid
down his golden rule for ascertain
ing the youth of an individual, namely,
to offer the suspected person a bun
immediately before dinner and then
to note whether it be accepted. i
Since active children need frequent
refreshment and assimilate it with
out difficulty, it is well to give them
the most suitable food. Cakes and
sweets generally are not desirable be
cause they take away the appetite for
a regular meal, to which they apper- j
tain as a kind of dessert. The better i
plan is to keep a generous supply
of fresh fruit constantly on hand in
the house. When a child becomes
hungry between meals and asks for
samething to eat, give him apples,
grapes or a peach.
It seems to be a well-ascertained
fact that apples, while satisfying the
"empty" sensation of a hungry per
son, do not interfere with enjoyment
of one's regular meals. The apple ls
par excellence a health food. It helps
to keep the digestive apparatus in
good working order, and the weak !
subacid of thc fruit appears to act ?
a3 a lubricant to the machinery of
the human body. Therefore, instead
of refusing to allow your children to
"eat between meals," or instead of
permitting them to cram sweet bis
cuits, crackers, of cakes, it is the part
of a wise mother to lay in a supply of
apples and allow the children unre
strained access to the fruit-Pitts

The English Wasp.
The common wasp, as a rule, keeps
Its sting for self-defense. It will bite
a fly in two with its jaws, if lt gets
in Its way on a window pane, but it
does not use irs sting even when try
ing to rob a beehive, and "tackled" by
theh bees. The latter will push a
wasp away five or six times, hustling
it off the footboard, without provoking
lt to sting. Dut if a bee endeavors
to sting the wasp lt then grapples
with it and stings back, killing or be
numbing the insect almost at once.
British wasps are fussy and excitable,
but not vicious, like many of the In
dian wild bees. However crowded or
uncomfortable they may be, they very
rarely quarrel with or sting each
other, as, for instance, when a num
ber are on the same window pane,
fretting and anxious to get out. Only
when the entrance to their nest is
threatened do they become actively
aggressive, and then as a rule the at
tack ls not begun till the person who
excites their fear interposes between
them and the entrance to the nest.
A setter dog was noticed to turn and
bite itself, whimpering with pain, just
as the party were sitting down to a
shooting luncheon by the side of a
wood in Yorkshire. The dog bein.: 1
tired, had lain down on the hole of a I
wasps' nest, and five or six of thc
yellow insects were stinging it at
once; but they did not touch the per
sons sitting close by.-The Spectator.
X-Rays in a fost Office.
The post office at Buenos Ayres has
furnished a striking illustration of the
value of X-rays in detective work, says
the Electrical Review. Jewelers have
found that smuggling in registered let
ters from Europe was very safe, as
the government officials could not le
gally open such letters on suspicion,
and it was finally resolved to investi
gate the evil without violating the law.
The X-ray promptly revealed watches,
chains, rings and other valuables in
astonishing quantity. This evidence
was sufficient for a court order to open
the packages and more than $20,000
of property has been confiscated in a
