My last letter was beautiful pic
tures. We have another beautiful
pictures on memories wail that
eclips all the others, and that is the
mothers and daughters of that
bloody and queens of our hearts,
the inspiration of every noble and
Chivalrous deed, the arbiterrs of
fortune and political histories of
Bations. Her chiefest v?staos, do
not exhale their sweetest fragrance
in the'bright hours of prosperity;
for it is her sacred mission to wine
away tears, to soften sorrows and
heartaches, and to bind up with
lender hands the open wounds of
grief. How truly can this be said
ef the mothers and daughters of
Confederate times. The Greek moth
ers told their sons, when tiley went
out to battle, to come back bearing
their shields or come back upon
them. The Confederate mothers did
more than that, they went to the
field of battle, and with their own
loving hands they laid their dead
sons upon their shields: they fol
lowed the sick and wounded to the
hospitals, binding up their bleeding
wounds and bathing their feverish
brow. Many a Confederate, soldier
just before passing to hie great
reward felt upon bis burning brow
the soothing touch of a gently hand,
and heard words from fair lips ut
divine hope and inspiration as soft
and sweet as an angel's prayer.
"From the time the buglar's clarion
sounded the first alarm of war, un
til the smoke of the last battle had
eleared away they were faithfully
true. And after the southern banner
went down in its blood stained folds
at .Appomattox. The soldiers re
turned to their homes, the mail band
o? the enemy had left its trail on
every side. It was ruined homes in
deed, everything was gone except
its queen, but she was there to
greet that soldier of hers, to inspire
him with new hope. Even to this
day the loving hearts of our south
ern women have never ceased their
well doing. For now comes these
fair daughters of the Confederacy,
with all their kindly deeds, a noble
band of true patriotic Christian wo
men to care for these old bullet
scared fellows who have been buffet
ed by the storms and conflicts of
life, and now in their declining days
they feel the need of a supporting
iand. And these daughters will ever
continue to drop the bright roses of
sympathy, the white lillies of chari
ty and the violets of tenderness in
their pathway while they are living.
And each year at the season when
the little birds sing their sweetest
earols, and when the bountiful hand
of nature fills the verdant hills with
music, bloom and beauty, then these
daughters uwill come vvith tsnder
feands and loving heans, and will
gather those flowers and lay them
en these little low tents whose con
tains never outward swing, in sa
cred memory of the heroes of the
south. And all the whispering winds
will chant a reqnitn, and yonder
river the Chickamauga, and the
blue waters of the the Kappohao
sock will sing a lullaby, and the
everlasting hills which looked down
?pon tho eharge they made, aud
shook with ;the roar of their con
flict, and heard their dying groans
will keep watch round their Bleep
ing dust, until the trumpet shall
sound in the morning. .

Magazines and Liquor Adver
"Not long ago a canvass was
made of sixty popular magazines to
find out where they stood on the
temperance question. Forty of the
sixty said space could not be bought
at any price, for liquor advertise
ments. We should suspend business
irst was the purpose expressed in
one form or another by all the edi
tors of these magazines."
The above clipping from a Texas
exchange is a very strong testimo- |
nial to the sentiment against the
liquor business. This sentiment is j
growing all the time and in a few
years more it will be strong enough
to wipe out thc foulest blot that
now rests upon the civilization of
this great country.
At least one newspaper, while
professing not to see that the liquor
traffic is immoral, felt the pressure
so strong that it cut out all liquor
advertisements at a cost of hun
dreds of dollars per annum. This is
-proof of the strength of sentiment
in South Carolina against the liquor
interests. What temperance people
seed to do is to assert themselves
mord strongly, md make demands
that their wishes be regarded.

CLEANING CRASH AND LINEN
Uss of Gasolene, Instead of Tubbing,
Will Prevent All Shrinkage of This
One objection made to crash snits
whan they appeared in force this Bum
mer was that they shrank. They do
if you give them a chance, but that is
about the only objection you can find
against them. They wear well, they
are smart looking, they keep their
shape, they are cool and comfortable.
In fact, they are everything that a
summer suit should be. But they do
shrink when they are washed.
Therefore, dont wash them. That
ls to say, don't wash them in water.
Use gasolene. Have plenty of this
cleaning fluid. It. ls 30 or 40 cents
a gallon and a gallon is enough to
clean a whole suit. But don't skimp
on the gasolene. If you are tempted
to do so, think how much the profes
sional cleaner would charge to clean
the suit, or else think what a disap
pointment it would have been if you
had sent the suit to the laundry and lt
had come back to you Just about big
enough to flt the kitten.
Don't try to clean with gasolene a
crash euit that has been once to the
laundry. It will be already shrunk,
and, moreover, gasolene does not al
ways clean satisfactorily material that
has been washed in soap and water.
To clean the crash suit immerse it
In gasolene. Then rub the most
soiled parts-the hem, the collar and
cuffs and the front gore of the skirt.
Rab them between the hands briskly.
Then immerse the suit again in the I
gasolene and then hang lt on a hanget
Ito dry. Don't wring the gasolene out,
but hang the suit up wet. The next
(day, after the gasolene has had time
to evaporate, press the suit The coat
twill need very little pressing, and this
(is another reason why gasolene wash
ing is better than soap and water
washing for a coat suit; it is almost
Impossible, evra for an expert laun
dress, to iron a coat satisfactorily.
Clean linen suits in the same way.
DRESS HAIR TO SUIT FACE
While Prevailing Styles May Be Fol
lowed, Individuality Is Always to
There are some women who remain
true to the parting in the middle of j
'the hair, but the many prefer the part
ing on the side. Thk forehead is en
tirely covered, as are the ears, and I
there IB no bulge anywhere over thei
surface of the head. The flatter the
better. This is the fashion. Every
individual must modify lt to suit her'
head and her face, for it is inartistic j
and foolish to follow any fashion with-/
out regard to your personal appeaafl
.ance. t ? ^|
If a parting is not becoming, then i
omit it and draw the hair softly j
back. If one's eyes are at their worat !
with the hair brought down to thei
eyebrows, then it must be lifted.
The main mistake that nearly every i
woman makes in arranging her hali
according to the new fashion is in run
Ding it down In a bias line ' <m the
middle of the forehead to the lobe |
of the ear. It was this line on each ?
side of the temples that contributed
to the hideousnees of the 1865 coiffure. |
Women who take the time and i
trouble to study their faces never use !
this line. You will notice that they j
make it as regular as though it were
carelessly scalloped across the brow
and temples. They give it an inward
curve at the end of each eyebrow and
then bring it out in front of each ear.
This line is as old as art itself and
can be seen on any of the famous pic
tures and statuary. It is not Grecian
In its strictest sense, but it is classic.
Of course the outward swerve in* front
of tba ears is highly exaggerated by
some women and an eccentric effect is
-produced, but that does not destroy
the fundamental beauty of this line,
properly drawn. ,i
Wrap for Traveling.
A military cape is the newest cloak
for traveling. It is comfortable and
smart at the same time and can be
worn over a gown, ti suit" or even A
flomy, a suit or even a filmy evening
toilette. In cuuet blue lined in scar
let and cito, a gleam of brass buttons,
it ls truly dashing.
