NEW CURTAIN IDEAS
I MAY BE MADE FROM CHEESE
CLOTH AND MUSLIN.
Lovely Window Hanging and Por
tiere That Any Bright Girl Can
Devise at Small Cost of Time
To the woman who Is her own
home decorator, the window curtain
furnishes a new opportunity. Women
GOO years ago used to spend a life
time embroidering these hangings.
The modern woman would scarcely
think of making a life work of tapes
She cares more for bold, sketchy
designs, that make a good effect with
the minimum amount of work.
For summer homes. In particular,
there are very attractive curtains
and portieres that may be embroi
dered at small cost of time and money.
Ordinary materials like unbleached
muslin, dotted muslin, cheesecloth or
Bheer lawns can be used, while for
portieres or outer curtains, cretonnes,
art linens, striped ticking or galatea
and cotton or linen taffetas In plain
colors give good results.
A girl last winter worked a set for
the living room of her country home
that have called forth more admira
tion than curtains costing three times
as much generally receive.
The room being done in a soft gray,
the curtains were made of gray
cheesecloth of a fine quality. Down
one side and across tho bottom of
each curtain was a border four inches
wide of scattered conventionalized
leaves outlined and darned In a soft
The straight outer lines of the bor
der were outlined and the spaces be
tween leaves also darned in. Hut
four colors were used, all in the
loveliest pastoral tints of green, blue,
dull pink and yellow. At Intervals of
ten Inches on the border was a large
slx-petaled flower, the edges of the
petals extending a half Inch or more
on each side of the border. This was
worked solidly In a creamy white,
shaded with green, the centers filled
with yellow French knots.
Heavy mercerized cottons of high
sheen were used for the embroidery,
and with the exception of flowers,
which were worked in shaded "en-
Lsington stitch, the work was done in
outline for the edges and plain run
ning stitches about a quarter of an
Inch long to fill up all the empty
spaces and give a glossy, solld-loking
A girl with any small pretension nt
drawing could design such a border
for herself. Draw two straight lines
four inches apart as a foundation of
border, scatter across It diagonally
from edge to edge a conventionalized
vine of any long-pointed leaf; connect
by stems an eighth of an inch wide,
and at ten inches cross band with sin
gle flowers, such as nasturtium, wild,
rose or chrysanthemum.
The design Is first outlined and then
filled in with the darning stitches,
care being taken that the coloring is
arranged to bring out each separate
part. This border, simple as it is,
gives opportunity for original color
effects. If desired the flower could be
one used In wall paper or border.
For School Children.
Supply the youngsters going to
school with folded paper cornucopias,
which come in sealed packages for a
small sum. These are used for drink
lng cups Instead of those found in
public places. It is wise to keep a
Bupply of these paper cornucopias on
hand for those who travel and for the
Bhopper when In the city for a day.
Teach the children to make these use
ful little drinking cups from clean
white paper, and there will be no
dunger of contracting disease from a
drinking cup used by every one who
Save Scrubbing Brushes.
Had usage is, more often than not,
responsible for the short life of a
really first-class scrubbing brush. Aft
er using the brush, never lay It up
side down, as any moisture on the
L m bristles will sink into the back and
make the brush soggy. For the same
reason the household broom should
never be placed In the corner with
the straw part upward. Instead,
fasten It to a catch In the wall by a
piece of string tied firmly to the end
of the handle or run through a hole
Cleaning the Sewing Machine.
A bicycle pump will clean a sewing
machine when it is clogged with dust
arid it seems impossible to reach tho
parts with a cloth. Hlow out all the
little particles with the pump, finally
cleaning with a soft cloth and oil.

the head of the house; "I havo a din

At breakfast next morning an om

head of the house had no appetite
and was evidently far from feeling

essayed to start conversation.
It's funny about that clock," he
said. "It's stopped, and I'm sure I
wound it last night."
"You are mistaken," said his wife,
icily; "you wound up Willie's music

THE DOCTOR'S WIFE
Agrees with Him About Food.
A trained nurse says: "In the
practice of my profession I have
found so many points in favor of
Grape-Nuts food that I unhesitatingly
recommend it to all my patients.
"It is delicate and pleasing to the
palate (an essential in food for the
sick), and can be adapted to all ages,
being softened with milk or cream
EOT babies or the aged when deficiency
of teeth renders mastication impos
sible. For fever patients or those on
liquid diet I find 'Grape-Nuts and albu
men water very nourishing and re
freshing.' "This recipe is my own idea and is
made as follows: Soak a teaspoonful
of Grape-Nuts In a glass of water for
an hour, strain and serve with the
beaten white of an egg and a spoonful
of fruit juice for flavouring. This af
fords a great deal of nourishment that
even the weakest stomach can assim
ilate without any distress.
"My husband Is a physician and he
uses Grape-Nuts himself and orders It
many times for his patients.
"Personally I regard a dish of Grape
Nuts with fresh or stewed fruit as the
ideal breakfast for anyone well or
In any case of stomach trouble, nerv
ous prostration or brain fag, a 10 day
trial of Grape-Nuts will work wonders
in this way ending the trouble.

FREAK IN SEQUOIA FOREST
Tree Trunk That Has Stood for Six
teen Years Severed From
Out in California there Is a tree
trunk which has stood for the last 16
years entirely severed front its base,
snys the Wide World Magazine. The
Plump Is 15 feet In diameter, and the
trunk towers 75 feet In tho air. This
lemarknble freak Is located near the
Sequoia forest reserve In Tulare coun
ty, California, and was sawn off by
lumbermen for timber. Through some
miscalculation, when the cut was fin
ished the tree Btlll held Its position,
and dynamite was resorted to to bring
It to the ground, which accounts for
the deep gash on one side. After the
first charge of the explosive had been
Ignited the tree still remained stand
ing, and It was discovered that the
entire trunk had been shattered by
the discharge and was therefore use
less for lumber. Accordingly, the
work was stopped and the giant has
remained upright, withstanding some
of the severest wind storms that the
state has known, held In its natural
position by Its great weight.

not help her and I tried Beveral renin

A New One About Napoleon.
A "new" story about Napoleon Is
necessarily doubtful; the probability
is that it Is simply so old that It has
been forgotten. However, here Is one
that Arthur M. Chuquet prints In
IVOpinion as never before published.
It relatesto Napoleon and Hlucher.
The emperor received the general
at the castle of Finkensteln, while he
was preparing for the siege of Danzig.
He drew him to a window In an upper
slory and paid him compliments on
his military gifts, and Hlucher, going
away delighted, described the Inter
view to his aide-de-camp. "What a
chance you missed!" exclaimed the
"You might have changed the whole
course of history."
"Why, you might have thrown him
out of the window."
"Confound It!" replied Hlucher. "So
I might! If only I had thought of it."
