Traveling gowns this year will be
made of either mohair or pongee; the
pongee are the newer. The dark col
ored pongees are the best, although
the natural ecru color, for those wom
en who can wear it, is always smart
and attractive. Mohair, with a dot
- or hair line is much smarter than the
plain color, and blue is considered
smarter than black. These gown3 are
made with short skirts, not like rainy
day or golf skirts, but distinctly short
enough to clear the ground. The jack
ets are usually quite short, have tails
at the back cut off square, and long
pointed fronts. They are simply made,
and trimmed with bands of taffeta, or
oddly enough, with bands of cloth. A
long traveling cloak is one of the fea
tures of the season to quote the manu

Women Should Not Fnw.
The best-bred women do not fuss.
They take their gowns and their furni
ture, their jewels and their children as
matters of course. They are uncon
scious of their veils and their gloves
and they expect every one else to be
equally so. It they see an intimate
friends wearing a handsome gown they
refer to it admiringly but they also
preface their comment with an apol
ogy. Their differences with their hus
bands are not aired neither the domes
tic upheavals caused by the desertion
of the cook on wash morning. The re
pose of well-bred women is not the
quiet of weakness, it is the calm of
trained facilities balanced so nicely
that an earthquake may cause a
change of color but will not bring
forth a loud cry. Well-bred women are
a boon to the human race. They help
the social and professional world to
maintain a high standard both of mor
als and behavior.
The French l!eel Popular.
From gloves to shoes is a natural
transition after looking in at the win
dow of a fashionable shop where the
dress for both extremities are dis
played together. 'Tis sad bur very true,
that thc French heel is as firmly fixed
in popular esteem as ever. The fluffy
girl, and lots of other girls, who ought
to reason better, wear heels of abnor
mal height and of perilous slender
ness. The efforts of the shoemakers
te establish the Cuban heel have up
to this time met with little encourage
ment. With nine-tenths of the women
it is the French heel or the perfectly
flat masculine heel, and what your tru
ly smart woman wears, when shopping
or calling, is a pair of thinnest, shini
est Oxford ties, laced with broad black
ribbons that tie in flaring bows over
her insteps, mounted on Pompadour
heels of thc most exaggerated type
and put on over the most delicate
laced hose.-Chicago Record-Herald.
Some Heit Arrangement*.
All sorts of full arrangements are to
be seen for belts made of the materials
of the gowns with which they are
worn. In silk gowns there wi I bs ful

shaped a little in front, with a bone
perhaps, and made to form a little
point, and wider in front tnan at the
sides, where there is only the materi

couple of frills, which s'uid out, are
boned, and make the belt as wide as
in thc front. Or the belt is simple,
pulled down a little in the front, and
fastens there with a little shirred
frill, one side lapping over the other,
sometimes exactly in irv.? *?ntrn, and
again a little to one s.de.
" There are narrow, stitched, fitted
bodice-like belts, though narrow, and
some of these are laced through eyelet
holes in the back. Or a little soft silk

back or front, where are thc folds of

Improvement ot English Women.
Lady Jeune contribute; an .?ter

She says: "In former times it used
to be said there was no mistaking an
English woman abroad, for she was
always badly dressed, ugly and ill
mannered. In short, she was a sort
of traveling porcupines byword and a
laughing stock to all who saw her. It
is a relief now to find how completely
all this has changed. When ones goes
abroad, one has no cause to feel
ashamed of English men or women.
Very many more travel now than for
merly, but the change wr ich has come
over them is indescrioabie. When a
tidily dressed, well turned out woman
appears, one knows she's English.
She's better dressed, in the first in
stance, than the American woman, be
ing more quietly and suitably attired.
She is quieter in her manners and talk,
and, allowing her and insular prejudice,
one may say she is prettier and more
ladylke. She doesn't givo the impres
sion that all creation was made for
her instead of her being but an atom
in the general scheme. She bears fa

The favorite design for the little

straggling hairs at the nape of the

Buckles of bloi.d torloit-e-shell are
worn in the hair. They are mounted .
on a comb. The edge of the buckle,
which is long and oent in shape, are
powdered with diamond dust.
An ornament for hair or corsage is a

Lorgnettes are short and delicately
fine rather than big and showy as they
have been of late. The case into
which the glasses fit when the lorg

well, and is small and unobtrusive,
though of beautiful workmanship.
Perfume balls, which are the favor

A Model Nursery.
Every baby in the land ought to be

Mrs. Dubois, wife of Senator Dubois,
of Idaho, is sponsor for the model nur
sery, and has taken a^deep interest in
all its workings, coing so far as to
lend her baby girl, 22 months old, to
illustrate how the model nursery oper
ates. Elizabeth Duoois, the baby, is
a vigorous youngster and seemed to
rather enjoy thc attention she re
ceived. She did her best to prove her
mamma the greatest model nursery
managed ever. Other babies were al
so introduced to the luxuries of the
Mrs. Dubois, in furnishing her model
nursery, used only such articles of
furniture and dress as had been tested
by experienced mothers and found to
be the best for the health and comfort
of the babies in which they were per
sonally interested. There were a baby
basket and a layette especially ds
signed to make the first month of a
baby's life one for the child to look
back upon in future years lith keenest
joy. This model wardrobe fer newly
arrived infants did not include band
or bandage of any kind, and all the
clothing was constructed so as to hang
gracefully from the shoulders. The
dresses were just sufficiently long to
cover the ?abies' feet, and none of
them had court trains.
"The i.and which rocks the cradle"
may have ruled thc world in a less en
lightened age, but it didn't do any
rocking in the model nursery. There
was no cradle and r.ary a rocker. The
crib was on good, solid legs, and bad
a not particularly soft mattress. Model
nursery babies don't uso soft mat
tresses, and they scorn pillows. They
just lie dat and sleep. The more they
sleep the better the mothers (and
fathers) are pleased-especially along
about 'thn?e a. m. Little Elizabeth Du
bois, during the first y??V of lier life,
slept 20 hours out of every 24, and
took pride in it.
i In the model nursery was a little
wire inclosure, or baby corral, so to
speak, fitted up with cushions and
playthings. The idea was to put the
baby into the corral, say "There you
are!" and leave it to amuse itself, or
sleep, in its judgment it thought best.
The consensus of opinion of the
mothers was that the less a baby is
handled and dandled the better.
Then there was a steaming tent for
croup-for even the modelest kind of
a model baby has croup sometimes
and there were obther contraptions for
treating ailing babies without thc use
of medicine. No sick babies were ex

ISLAND OF ST. VINCENT.

tre-I'rovlutis Outbreak of La Soafriere.
From the information received it
would seem that the present volcanic
eruption on the island of St Vincent
is almost exactly a counterpart of
that of 1812, heretofore the greatest
event in the history of the island, ihe
next in importance to it and in havoc
wrought being the terrie hurricane
which on the 11th of September, 1898,
swept from Barbadoes across the
Windward Islands, making St. Vincent
its chief victim, although our own
Porto Rico suffered severely.
A ridge of mountains crosses the
island, dividing it into eastern and
western parts. ' Kingstown, tho capi
tal, a town of 8,000 inhabitants, is on
the southward side and stretching
along the shores of a beautiful bay,
with mountains gradually rising be
hind it in the form of a vast amp.ii
theatre. Three streets, broad and
lined with good houses, run parallel
to the waterfront. There are many
other interesting highways, some of
winch lead back to the foothills, from
wnica good roads ascend the 'moun
The majority of the houses have
red tile roofing and a goodly number
of them are of stone, one story nigh,
with thick walls after the Spanish
style-the same types of houses that
were in St. Pierre and which are not
unlike the old Roman houses which
in all stages of ruin and semi-preser
vation are found in Pompeii to this
Behind the great mass of the houses
of the town looms the governor's resi
dence and the buildings of the botani
cal gardens overlooking the town.
Kingstown is the trailing center and
the one town of importance in the
island. It contains thc churches and
chapels of five Protestant denomina
tions and a number of excellent
schools. Away from Kingstown the
population is almost wholly rural, oc
cupying scattered villages which con
sist of negro huts clustering around a
few substantial buildings or of cabins
grouped about old plantation buildings,
somewhat after the ante-bellum fash
ion in our own Southern states.
Thc entire population of tho island
Is about 43,000, of whom 30,000 are
Africans and about 3,000 Europeans,
the rest being made up of Asiatics
with a sprinkling of mixed Caribs. The
negroes in many cases arc land own
ers, and arrow root, since the decay of
tho sugar industry now all but extinct,
is the chief export.
In an islund only eighteen miles
long by eleven broad there is not
room for any distinctly marked moun
tain- range. The whole of St. Vincent
in fact is a fantastic jumble of hills,
culminating in the volcanic ridge
which runs lengthwise of the oval
shaped island. Beautiful valleys at
various points, in fact, intersect this
ridge. The culminating peak of the
g'cat volcanic mass, lor St. Vincent is
nothing more, is thc Morne Garou, of
which La Soufri?re is a sort of lofty
excresence in the northwest and
flanking the main peak at some dis
It may be said that all of the vol
canic mountains in this part of the
West Indies have what the people call
a "soufri?re"-a "sulphur pit," ur "sul
phur crater"-thc name coming, as in
the case of past disturbances of Mont
Pelee, Martinique, from thc strong
stench of sulphuretted hydrogen
which issues from them when the vol
cano becomes agitated.
In 1S12 it was La Soufri?re adja
cent to the Morne Garou which broke
loose on the island of St. Vincent and
it is thc same Soufri?re which now
has devastated the island and is bom
barding Kingstown with rocks, lava
Thc old crater of Morne Garou has
long been extinct, and, like the old
crater of Mont Pelee, near St. Pierre,
ft had f-r down in its depths, sur
rounded by sheer cliffs from 500 to 800
feet high, a lake.
Glimpses of the lake of Morne
Garou were difficult to get, owing to
the thick verdure growing about the
dangerous edges of thc precipices,

What amazed people then Was that
ibis smoke and the great dense clouds

be borne so far seaward in the very
teeth of thc strong trade winds which
blow toward the southwest. The ex

the smoke and litter miles high into
the air until they were way above the
trade winds and there met the reverse

Barbadoes is totally dissimilar in its
natural features to any of the volcan
ic chain of the Caribbean Islands. It
resembles a pear in outline, with
thc narrow end pointing to thc north,
and is slightly concave on the east. In
configuration the island is elevated,
and yet not mountainous, the highest
point, near the center, Mount Hillaby,
being 1.100 feet, from which the land
descends in a series of low terraces
on all sides to the sea.
Thc aspect of the country is that of
a beautiful rural landscape inter
spersed with groups of neat houses
and plantations surrounded by gar
dent; and trees and dotted here and
there with windmills, which resemble
those that are so marked a feature of
the landscape of Holland.
The whole area of thc island is oc
cupied and of its total acreage of
10G.470 every foot is under cultivation
except 0,470 acres occupied by towns,
cliffs and highways. Almost its sole
industry is sugar cane growing, and
it has been said that If Cuba were
as closely cultivated as Barbadoes it
would produce enough sugar to supply
the entire world.

SCHOOL SAVINCS BANKS.
An Institution Thut Posseme* Many
All persons, especially parents, -who
have the good of the coming genera
tion at heart will, no doubt, be in
terested in what Mrs. S. L. Oberholt
zer has to say on tho subject of school
savings banks. Mrs. Oberholtzer, who
is well known among the local women
workers, has devoted several years to
the study of that institution, and has
traveled considerably to promote its
progress, her addresses being inva
riably received with favor. After a
most interesting interview with Mrs.
Oberholtzer one can but marvel that
this admirable idea is not in opera
tion in every school in our country.
"Inclination and genius are inherit
ed, but character and fortune are
made," says Mrs. Qberh?ltzer? "The
subject of school savings banks ls one
of great national interest, because as
we develop in thrift and individuality
the wealth and strength of the nation
increases. In europe it is admittedly
ono of the best educational factors of
the agc, but here in our own city,
though Superintendent Brooks has ex
pressed himself in favor of it, there
are enough dissenting voices to hinder
The school savings banks system,
which was introduced into vais coun
try by Professor F. H. Thiry, in 1885,.
is now in operation in more than 800
public -schools in the United States,
while tho total savings of these young
depositors nave amountod to $900,000.
Those schools arc scattered through
20 different states. The work was
firic taken up in Long Island City,
N. Y., public schools in 1S85, and ever
finco 18S9 (by this time it. had proved
its worth) tne system has gained im
petus and advocates. It is in opera
tion in lfiO Pennsylvania schools.
Thoso pioneer children of Long Island
City have saved and deposited sinco
1S85, $119.8S0. At instance, nearer
at hand is our neighboring Chester,
v/hore, with a school population of
5000, there has been deposited since
To Montgomery county, however, be
longs thc honor of adopting tho sys
tem in this state. Mrs. Oberholtzer,
then a resident of Norristown, became
interested and made an address before
the Teachers' Institute in tne fall of
18S9. A resolution was passed to
adopt the system in the schools at the
option of the districts of tlie Norris
town and Pottstown public schools,
and thc children of Norristown have,
since January, 1900, deposited $S7,237,
the school children of Pottstown fol
lowing with $67,647.' These few
iigurcs will give one an idea of the
money which may bc saved instead of
frittered away on cheap candies, dis
gusting gum and other stupid or harm
It is all very simple. The teacher
is provided with thc roll books and the
copyright cards. She calls the roll
every Monday morning from this roll
book, which is conveniently arranged,
with a date for each Monday in the
school year, and places the amount of
thc scholar's deposit, be it one or ten
cents, opposite his or her name. The
amount is also credited on the copy
right card, which is then handed back
to the pupil, who keeps it as a memo
randum and receipt. This card is
brought to school every Monday morn
ing, when a deposit is made.
After the roll-call the teacher counts
the money, and sends it in a sealed en

collections from all the rooms to the
bank co-operating. At first thc amount
is accredited as a general school fund.
When a deposit reaches $1 thc deposit
or is individualized and receives a
bank book, and once the sum of $3 is
deposited it draws three percent in
On the last Friday of each month
the children are given their bank
books to take home, so that they may
compare them with thc cards. Many
parents themselves oijcn bank ac
counts. Camden's public school
scholars. 499 in number, have deposit
ed $65,384 since 1895.
Figure to yourseu just how well It
would be for the average youth or
maiden, upon being graduated, to have
a few hundred dollars in bank. It
would in some instances open the way
to further study; it would give the
budding merchant a needed lift; to
others it would be the nucleus of a
hone and independent old age. But,
best of all, it is a remedy against pau
perism, and acts as a preventive to
crime and intemperance. It fosters
thrift, economy, industry, self-depend
ence, and produces self-respecting citi
zens. No matter what the home con
dition, a child sees a way "to more
content and less contention" in this
saving of pennies that tho dollars may
have the chance" to look after them
selves. In case of sickness, too, or
other misfortune, it is convenient to
have a reserve fund to draw upon.
Til? Hairpin In Sclnnci*.
A scientific writer in American
Medicine pays a glowing tribute to the
hairpin. He finds that it is of almost
inestimable value to thc surgeon, who
can use it "to pin bandages, to re
move foreign bodies from any natural
passage, as a curette for scraping away
soft material, to compress a blood ves
sel in controlling a hemorrhage, and to
close a wound." In addition to these
uses thc gentleman has used the hair
pin to prone wounds and to wire bones
together in cases of fracture. But it
is not in surgery only that the hairpin
is useful. It may take the place of a
suspender button or help out when an
automobile breaks down. Perhaps if
the truth were known many a loco
motive has been held together, at a
pinch, by a hairpin, and we are no!
surprised that the writer for American
Medicine suggests that it would al
ways be well for man to c.rrry a sup
ply of hairpins in his pocket. Such a
practice would undoubtedly have im
portant advantages, but there is a bet
ter and more pleasant plan. If it could
be so arranged that a man might al
ways have at least one companionable
lat?.? near him tho highest usefulness
of i hairpin might be developed.

An obstinate grease spot on tho
kitchen floor may be removed by
spreading on the boards a hot solution
of Fuller's earth and S'.'dri; Allow it
to stand for some hours, that absorp

Rastorlnc Scorched Linen.
Here is a formula that it is said
will restore scorched linen. Peel and
slice two onions and extract the juice
by squeezing or pounding. Then cut
up half an ounce of white soap and add
?wo ounces of Fuller's earth; mix
with them the onion's juice and half a
pint of vinegar. Boil this composition
well, and spread it when cool over the
scorched part of the linen, leaving
it to dry thereon. Afterward wash out
Cleanliness arid health go hand iii

Cleah is to keep it free from disease
germs; that is, to keep our food which
is cooked in the kitchen free from un
wholesome elements, which cause it to
spoil and to be unwholesome when
Tho clothes we wear should be brush
ed free from dust, because the air is
full of impure geims. Those who wore
in dirty, dusty factories or other places
like them should have their clothes
beaten every day after they come
home. Grease spots should bo care

may become culture places for impur

There ls a great difference between
a thing being scientifically clean and
clean in the ordinary understanding of
the term. A house filled with thc
germs of tuberculosis may be clean to
all appearances, and one which has
just been disinfected scientifically may
have Indelible stains oe previous wear,
and tear on the walls and carpets; yet
one is a wholesome dwelling and the
other is not clean.-New York Tribune.
Food that, is wholesome and well
cooked is a boon. Beef, properly serv
er, is one of the most desirable meats.
Here are some recipes for preparing it
In different forms:
Baked Bullock's Heart-Wash and
wipe the heart, cut it into fovir pieces.
Season these with pepper and salt,
chopped thyme and lay leaves, eight
onions cut in slices, two ounces of

with a pint of water, put on the lid
and bake in the oven two to three
Ragout of Beef-Melt and brown
thoroughly half an ounce of butter.
Add to it one ounce of flour, stir till
brown and perfectly smooth. Pour
in slowly half a pint of stock, thc same
quantity of boiled and drained Spanish

then add about a pound of cold roast
beef cut into nice neat slices. Cook
slowly till the bpef is heated through.
Remove the slices carefully and ar
range on a dish so that one slice over
laps tlu: oilier. Pour the stuce ov-?r
all, garnish with chopped gherkins,
decorate the canter of the dish with
horseradish and serve very hot.
Fillet of Beef-Proc .re two pounds
of nice fillet of beef and cut into neat

two ounces of butter in a frying pan.
and fry the fillets for five or sewm
minutes, then brush over each with
glaze. Place a border of mashed pora
toes on a dish, lay the fillets on it

over the whole, letting it soak through
to the bottom. Cover the top with
bread crumbs and a ?light sprinkling
of grated cheese and bike in the oven

Lemon Finit .Icily-OT '-half box gel

to farmera, heneo they should select
good seed. When planta are missing
in tho hills or rows the appearance
of the field la not attractive. It ls
better and cheaper to buy (Selected
