Tliis is tlic season in which those
who are bound In by < -11 \ walla look
forward to th>' time when their coun
try friends will remember them and
offer a few weeks' hospitality in their
Woodland and seashore homes. Some
few hints as to the demands a hostess
makes upon a guest will not lie out of
place nor, I hope, unkindly received.
The first obligation on the part of the
guest is to keep the date originally de
cided upon and to arrive at the stated
time instead of postponing the promis
ed \isit to the possible intrusion upon
the hostess' plans for other guests.
If for some unavoidable reason a
guest should he unable to arrive at the
appointed time. She OUght Dot to expect
to remain longer than the original date.
A hostess would naturally press her to
remain a few days longer, but don't. I
pray you. no matter how .jolly a time is
on hand. Thai there are times when
to refuse would he to offend is not un
usual, hut as a rule it is best to be on
the sale side by not remaining lons
enough rather than by spoiling a visit
by even a day.
When you do arrive, make yourself
at home just as soon ns ever you can.
A hostess is so much more comfortable
if you will roam into the library and
liick our the book you want and find
some place to enjoy it if you desire or
take a ramble in the fields for an hour
without her having to tag alter you,
always anxious lest you chance to be
lonesome or lacking amusement.
During certain hours of the day the
mistress who attends to her own house

must give her personal attention, and

giving her the leisure to attend to
them, you will pi down on her list of
visitors as one of a cherts) ed few. She
will get as much pleasure out of your
visit as you do. which, on the whole, is
no more than right.
There are few duties imposed upon a
guest, but one of them is to keep her
room orderly. Usually the guest cham
ber is the best room in the house and
often has the prettiest furnishings.
That quests fail to appreciate this is
only too evident, judging from the
manner in which belongings soon be-

conn' scattered about and dishevel the

truly ashamed to leave the door of her
guest room open when it is occupied
because of the disorderliness within,
and yet what lady with the least little
bit of eon ion for her friend's
feelings woi are to right that unti
diness or permit her maid to do so?
A friend of mine while speaking of a
mutual acquaintance remarked that
Miss X was t lit- dearest girl, but she
added sotto voce, "She is so untidy."
My silent response was, "She has vis

I did not express it.

for the table is usually spoiled.
If your hostess is accustomed to an
afternoon siesta, it would be very con
siderate on your part to retire to your
own room or if you are not one of the
deeping kind find out some shady spot
and leave her for awhile. Many an

A Few SneKotlions For Hot "tt'cathet

July is the seventh month of the
year according to our modern compu
tation of times and seasons, and it
was the fifteenth day of the seventh
month that the children of Israel were
commanded to live for seven days in
booths made of green boughs and wil
low branches. Though their seventh
month may not have corresponded in
time to our seventh month, yet is the
example they set a most excellent one.
To be sure, it would be quite out of the

question for most of us to forsake the
four walls which have protected us
from the day of our birth and go out
to reside in a tent and under the open
sky, and If we did so there would be a
fine harvest of pneumonia and malaria,
but as soon as the warm, dry weather
is actually established we should alter
our mode of living from that which
we followed when frost and cold reign
ed in the land.
City people have a pretty hard time
obtaining the air and sunlight which
they should have in summer time. Yet
even in the city man might be more
comfortable than he is if he would
construct his dwelling properly with
balconies and roof gardens. In the re
cent building (if apartments architects
are appreciating the decorative use of
the balcony and are substituting it for
the ugly but necessary lire escape. Oik;
ten story apartment house put up last
year has most artistic wrought iron
balconies from the second to the top
floor. These are overshadowed in sum
mer time by awnings and art 1 wide
enough to hold steamer chairs, jardi
nieres and even small tables. After
sundown the male heads of the various
households which inhabit the building
resort to these balconies to smoke,
while the ladies in their light summer
powns enjoy there whatever breeze
there may be atloat and sip lemonade
or iced tea.
In the country out of door living is
easy, for it is a queer cottage that can
not boast a piazza, a nearby tree or
two or a summer house. For a piazza,
whether wide or narrow, a corner soot
such as is shown in the illustration is
convenient As will be seen, the con
struction is of the simplest and is quite
within the scope of the home carpen

cotton are made to fit the seat and are
covered with denim. These'are taken
in on rainy days and at night so that
they may not become impregnated
with dampness, concludes The Design

The Rißht Way to Remove a Glove.
Do not take a glove off carelessly if
you desire it to last well. In taking off
turn the wrist over the fingers and
draw until the fingers are half uncover
ed, then the finger ends may be loosen
ed by the tips. This makes it an easy
matter to readjust the glove right side
out. It is a good plan to breathe in a
glove after taking It off. It preserves
the softness of the kid by quickly dry
ing any slight moisture.
The difference of cost between a
good and a poor baking powder
would not amount for a family's
supply to one dollar a year.
The poor powder would cost
many times this in doctors' bills.
Royal Baking Powder may cost a little
more per can, hut it insures perfect,
wholesome food. In fact, it is more
economical in the end, because it goes
further in leavening and never spoils
Royal Baking Powder used always
in making the biscuit and cake saves
both health and money.
You cannot, if you v.ilue good health, afford
to use cheap, low-grade, alum baking pow
ders. They are apt i" spoil the food; they
do endanger the health. All physicians will
tell you that alum in food is poisonous

As far as feeding poultry is concern
ed the must common trouble is a lack
of variety in diet It should always he
remembered that fowls are omnivorous
In their habits. Their natural food
comprises the whole three kingdoms
Into which matter is divided—viz. the
animal, vegetable and mineral. If any
one or two of these are supplied and the
third Is lacking, the ration Is unbal
anced and consequently not calculated
to develop a perfectly healthy organ
ism. When fowls are confined in
houses or yards, the various grains,
such as corn, wheat and oats, form too
large a proportion of the bill of fare in
many eases. Green vegetables and
meat should be supplied in much larger
quantities than they are ordinarily
given. Have a cabbage or a beet in
the poultry house at all times that the
fowls may help themselves as they
wish. Ground beef scraps, fresh raw
meat and finely ground butchers' bones
contain much nutriment and are excel
lent to stimulate egg production. Then
oyster shells must be given to furnish
lime and gravel, pounded glass and
crockery to aid in reducing the food.
Furthermore, in feeding poultry it must
be borne in mind that the feed is ac
cording to the object to be gained. Is
it eggs or flesh. Are they young or old
birds? Different cases require the fol
lowing of totally different methods.
For eggs we want such foods as bran,
shorts, cottonseed, gluten and linseed
meals, peas and clover; for the produc
tion of flesh feed corn, rye, buckwheat
and oily foods. There Is no definite

ject. It is necessary to determine what

The popularity of the capon seems to

I'se Some Paint.
Paint is cheap. Cover those poultry
houses with it and see how much bet

and you will be happier every time you
glance that way. Paint is economical,
because it preserves the lumber, and if
the holes are filled with putty before
painting you will have a warmer and
Still More Counterfeiting.
The secret service has unearthed an
other band of counterfeiters and secured
a large quantity of bogus bills, which
are so cleverly executed that the average
person would never suspect them of be
ing spurious. Things of great, value are
always selected by counterfeiters for im
itation, notably the celebrated Hostet
ter'e Stomach Bitters, which has many
imitators but no equals for indigestion,
dyspepsia, constipation, nervouenens
and general debility. The bitters sets
things right in the stomach, and when
the stomach is in good order it makes
good blood and plenty of it. In this
manner the bitters get at the seat of
strength and vitality, and restore vigor
to the weak and debilitated. Beware of
counterfeits when buying^
