Embroidered Pique Coats.
Embroidered pique coats are mu cb
worn by little children, and if you buy
a good pique with a rather ?ne cord it
will launder and wear very weih Ono
charming little coat that I saw rc*

an embroidered scallop on the edge,
and with several rows of large round
dots Worked above it. The tdrhovei'
collar and cuffs were embroidered in
the same manner. The best way to
make the dots ls to work them In the
over and overstitch from side to side,
and then, Using the same stitch, work
them from top to bottom. This pads
them thoroughly, and makes them stand
out most effectively.

the plants 18 inches apart in the cen

our hospitals are full of women comiug
for just such operations.
There are cases where an operation
is the only resource, but when one con

operations, no woman should submit tc
one without first trying the Vegetable
Compound and writing Mrs. Pinkbnra,

the bad symptoms disappeared and I am
