CARE OF HANDKERCnIEFS.
How to Wash the Bits of Delicate
The careful Frenchwoman takes
macb trouble over the proper wash
ing of her handkerchiefs and would no
more think or having them go iuto
the bands of the family laundress
than she would send a piece of band
6orae lace to her Even if they are of
the thinnest material, and they are
mostly simple bits of delicate linen
embroidered or lace trimmed, they
are expected to last their allotted time,
end that they shall do so requires that
great pains be taken with them. If
there is uo maid in the little menage,
then madam must do her own wash
ing, and this is the way she goes about
In the flrst place, her handkerchiefs
are never allowed to become unduly
soiled and after once using are put
into a small linen bag that always
hangs beside the toilet table. When a
half dozen or more have collected
they are put to soak in an earthen
bowl filled with cold water and suds
made from the best of washing soap.
In this they should remain for half
an hour, after which they are care
fully rinsed in more cool water. Then
comes the thorough washing of them
In hot water in which a spoonful of
borax has been dissolved. This is
dune as gently as possible by patting
and rubbing, and for this last many
women use a child's toy washboard,
which is exactly the right size for the
purpose. In this way no threads of
the fine material are broken, a disas
ter which is difficult to remedy. The
final rinsing is also done through
many cool waters until every particle
of soap is gone, and then comes the
climax of the entire performance.
The handkerchiefs are placed in a
bowl of milk into which have been put
a few drops of esseuce of violet, which
is strong aud of a bluish tinge, and
this will give to them the pure white
color which is so necessary. From
this each is taken and partially dried
in a clean towel and at once ironed.
No starch is used, for the milk takes
the place of that and the little iron
ing board is covered first with a heavy
flannel and after with a spotlessly
clean piece of white cloth.
An iron is kept especially for this
work, and usually it is some patented
affair, either for electricity or aleho
bol. To do this all properly will take
an hour or more of madam's time, but
she is 1 more than repaid for that by
the results seen. The little pile of
handkerchiefs will come from her
hands as if fresh from the shelves of
a shop, and they will have the deli
cate fragrance of having laiu in a

How to Master It With Little Trouble

for about three-quarters of an hour,

Add a little water if the rice becomes

How to Strengthen Facial Muscles.
When one is very tired and the fa
cial muscles seem to be twisted into a
tight knot, try mopping them with a
soft sponge or cloth wet with very
cold water. Besides resting the mus
cles of the face, the cold water acts
as a tonic. Here is a tip for the wo
man who feels herself a "sight" from
fatigue. Not only will she feel rested
after her cold mopping, but the tiny
wrinkles and tired lines will disappear
and she will look years younger. Quite
as strengthening as the cold water is
the ice rubbing. Put a small lump in
a clean linen cloth and pass it across
the face in opposite directions to the
wrinkles or fatigue lines.
How to Wash Colored Embroidery.
One method of washing colored em
broidery is to put a haudful of bran
into warm water and leave the ar
ticle to be cleaned in the water to
soak, pressing it gently from time to
time, but not rubbing it. When it is
clean hang it until it is nearly dry
and then stretch it on a frame and
