IS PRETTY ORNAMENT
CHEMICAL GARDEN A MOST EF
-Mot at all Costly, and Easy to Pre
pare-Beautiful Designs Possible
if the Proper Materials Are
It is very easy to secure a most
.charming effect by the formation of a
chemical garden. The best kind of
receptacle is a glass vessel of some
kind or other, and, on the whole, there
is nothing better for the purpose than
a globe such as is commonly em
ployed for goldfish.
All that need be purchased are a
couple of ounces of sulphate of cop
per, a few pieces of aluminum, a hand
ful of Iron nails and finally a can of
"water glass." This latter substance
ls, of course, extensively uspd for
The first step i3 to arrange an inch
?or so of sand in the bottom of the
globe. Then place the sulphate of
copper, the aluminum and the iron
nails on the layer. The different min
erals should be well mixed up togeth
A solution of the water glass should
now be prepared, taking one part of
?his material to three parts of plain
-water. Mix well by means of continu
ous stirring with a stick. The next
thing to do ls to pour the solution of
water glass over the minerals; the
actual quantity of the liquid employed
will depend upon the size of the glass
?vessel, but it may be mentioned ?hat
in depth the solution should not be
less than four inches.
The globe Is now placed aside where
lt will not be disturbed for a week.
At the end of this time lt will be seen
that a most beautiful growth, In al
most all conceivable colors, has start
ed up from the minerals. This growth
of course, represents the sPlcates of
the various substances. Mu**, people
will be astonished at the beautiful ef
fect which ls secured.
The final step consists in clearing
.-away the water glass. This must be
.carried out with great care, as many
of the growths are of a fragile de
scription. Probably the best plan is
to take the globe to a faucet and very
gently run water into the vessel until
the contents look quite clear.
Naturally after this has been done
the growths will appear to even finer
advantage than they did when first of
all observed. The chemical garden
will now last for a long while if it is
not disturbed by frequent moving

Embroidered clocks on stockings ar?
never more appropriate than when
worn with an organdie dress or a
white lingerie gown that has upon it a
touch of colored ribbon. If the col
ored ribbon is omitted, embroidered
stockings can be wcrn just the same,
for the embroidery can be in white
nlso. A dainty Southern girl, known
for her good taste in dress, wore with
a blue and white figured ogandie white
silk stockings upon which with her
own pretty fingers she had embroid
ered forget-me-not clocks. 7 my sprays
of the flowers ran up each side of the
stockings and peeped out when my lit
tle lady's skirts were raised ever so
slightly.-The Philadelphia Press.

Chance for Grannie.
A little English boy wrote to his
grandmother from his boarding school,
in time for her birthday. The letter i
ran thus: "Dear Grannie: 1 want to
send you a birthday present, but I j
haven't any money. So if you will
send me the money you always give
me for Christmas now, I'll buy you
something nice with it. I'm thinking
of a pair of pistols a boy here will sell
cheap or a gramophone that another
boy has. I could use them until I come

In a quiet English village there was '
recently held a celebration in the
schoolroom at the dedication of a new
fire engine. It was a giddy evening, j
with three speeches by local clergy-,
men and a long-winded oration by a
bald-headed politician. The gem of the
evening was the following toast:
"May she (the fire engine) be like the
dear old maids of our village-always
ready, but never wanted!"
In Her New Place.
"How are you getting on at your
new place?" remarked a lady of a girl
whom she had recommended for a sit
uation. "Very well, thank you," an
swered the girl. "I am glad to hear
it," said tho lady. "Your employer is
a very nice orson, and you cannot do
too much *o her." "I don't mean to
ma'am," was ? Innocent reply.
The teacher had just read the myth
about Perseus and Medusa. She wished
to stimulate the imagination of her
youngsters and asked them to de
scribe the hero as they pictured him.
One little girl wrote: "Perseus was
tall and stately with a black waxy
mustache and wore a monolog over
his left eye."
Ornaments of the Oyster.
A kindergarten teacher, after ex
plaining to her much interested class
that birds have feathers, bears have
fur, sheep have wool, etc., asked the
question: "Now. who can tell me
what oysters have?" A bright little
girl, very eager to recite, answered:
"Movies" and Monotony.

Business is the king pin of all pro

of a community which go to make up

sings at his work. He does more in

Woman Finally Recovers
From Nervous Breakdown
Impoverished nerves destroy many
people before their time. Often be
fore a sufferer realizes what the
trouble is, he is on the verge of a
complete nervous breakdown. It
is of the utmost importance to keep
your nervous system in good con

of all bodily power. Mrs. Rosa

"I have been suffering with nerv

years. Have tried many of the best
doctors in Birmingham, but they all
failed to reach my case. I would
feel as if I was smothering; finally
I went into convulsions. My little
