To prevent stringinoss and the show
ing of ugly cords in the neck massage
the throat every night with a cream
made from two gills* of spermaceli.
two ounces of white wax. fen ounces of
almond oil. forty grains of borax pow
dered and ten drops each of oil es
sences of bergamot and rosemary. A
pinch of powdered camphor should be
put with the cream while it is melting,
or half a teaspoonful of tincture of
benzoin may be added.
Before this or any other cream is ap
plied the throat must be carefully
washed at night and the cream rubbed
from chin to chest with a rotary mo
tion. This work should last for Sve
minutes at least. At the expiration of
that time the cream may be lightly
wiped off and a lotion made from a
pint of high t iroof alcohol to an ounce
of tincture of benzoin applied.
Following this, the head }s to be bent
back as far as it will go. which should
be enough to stretch the throat cords,
and alternating with the backward tilt
the head must droop forward until the
cciv rests upon the chest. Afterward
the head must be twisted first to one
side and then to the other, the object
of these movements being to keep
cords anil muscles strong and elastic
and prevent their sagging and so de
stroying the throat contour.
The cream described above may also
be rubbed into hollows of the chest to
fill them out.
A woman who carries her head well
—that is, the chin up—is less apt to
lose the beauty of her throat than one
who permits her head to droop for
ward. As a matter of fact, the head
held up, the chin iv place, is a beauty
not common, but adds enormously to
the effect of presence and distinction.
A mistake not unusual to those trying
to cultivate the habit is to thrust out
The Feet and Success.
The condition of the feet has a di
rect influence over one's success in life.
Pain and discomfort make one irrita
ble, and people are apt tv attribute the
irritability to a naturally bad temper.
Moreover, pain and discomfort distract
oue"s attention from business, be this
social or commercial. On every ac
count it is of great importance to have
the feet as easy as possible. These re
marks are merely passing touches of a
subject whose full treatment would
fill a volume. And in regard to con
sidering ways and means you must be
equally concise. One rule is to have
the feet sufficiently warm aud pleas
antly cool. Another is to keep the feet
dry. not merely on account of possible
chills, but because moisture tends to
make soft corns aud to so soften the
skin that frictiou may cause tender
ness. Footgear, iucluding socks aud
their substitutes, should be neither
tight nor loose, but should fit easily.
Tight boots cause pain by i.ressure.
Loose boots occasion blisters and
corns by friction. The uppers must be
soft and pliable to accommodate them
selves to the altered shape of the feet
when standing, sitting, etc. The soles
should be pliable. When they are stiff
the feet are either lifted off the ground
without the foot solos being bent.
which is tiring ami makes the walk
hideous, or the feet are wearied by
the effort at each step to bend the boot
What's What In Hairdressing.
The matter Of hairdressing tins sum
mer, says an authority, as regards the
big shade hat or the motor hat re
solves itself Into the simple proposition
of trimming the face. The woman
who is able to trim her face with best
results will have achieved the greatest
triumph in hairdressing. As for the
top of the head, it doesn't show much,
and a simple ban surrounded with an
appropriate design in puffs or coils or
braids will do.
Hairdressing for the hat is divided
into three parts—the utility pan. when
the hair is fastened where it ought to
be so that there is something to build
upon: the artistic part, which is after
the hat is put on and the hair is draped
to meet the knot at the back of the
head and secured firmly, and the gay
or picturesque part, when the little pin
curls are tucked in and the final fancy
pins are fixed iv place.
Hairdressing as it should be done
takes time. You do it slowly and you
take infinite pains with it. but when
once it is done it is done for all day.
You don't have to keep repairing it.
To Prevent Tartar.
Tartar being an enemy to sound
teeth and healthy gums, care should
be taken to prevent tartar from form
ing. Use frequently a solution of tinc
ture of myrrh, enough in a glassful to
fciake it milky in color. The mouth
should be carefully rinsed with an an
tiseptic wash Immediately upon aris
ing and before going to sleep. A pood
wash is made by adding one or two
teaspoonfuls of listerine to a glassful
of tepid water, but this must not be
used too constantly. Another good
mouth wash is thymol, seven and a
half grains: boras, fifteen grains; dis
tilled water, one pint.

FURNITURE FROM BOXES.
Hints For the Clever Housekeeper Who
Wants to Make Thirgs Herself.
Homemade furniture is quite the
latest fad of the home woman. She
turns to carpentering quite as natural
ly as she did to embroidery. Most of
the homemade furniture is made out of
boxes, and really it is remarkable
what excellent things one can make
even out of packing cases.
They make tine toilet tables when
covered with cretonne and titted with
Bhelves fur bottles, etc., which are
hidden beueath the deep gathered
flounce which hangs to the floor all
around the box. The upper portion of
such an improvised toilet table is
made by hanging » mirror against the
wall and draping around it a curtain
made of cretonne.
A large packing box planed smooth
and stained to match the walls makes
a tine receptacle for the kitchen pots
The same size box fitted with a brass
rod and a sliding curtain makes an
Shirt waist boxes, just now much in
demand, are made of pasteboard boxes
covered with cretonne and fit in a
wooden frame which holds eight or ten
of these pretty flowered boxes. The
frame is painted white.
Ci.yar boxes make admirable ribbon
and jewelry boxes. They can easily
be painted or covered with cretonne.
A useful shoe box can be made out
of a long, low packing case, and the
•op may be covered with a tufted
cushion and thus used as a window

COLFAX GAZETTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON, JULY 29, 1910.
Mrs. Clara Foltz, First Woman to
Be Assistant District Attorney.
MRS. CLARA SHOKTLEPOE FOLTZ.
Mrs. Clam Sbortledge Foltz is rbe
first woman in the United States to be
appointed to the office of assistant dis
trict attorney. Mrs. Foltz has her
home in Los Angeles, CaL. where she
was made assistant district attorney
several months ago. She is the sister
of Samuel L. Sbortleri.tre. who is the
law partner of Deimas. the man who
defended Harry Thaw. Up to the time
of the earthquake her borne was in
San Francisco, bat when the conflagra
tion which followed the quake destroy
ed it she moved to Los Angeles and
took up the practice of law there. She
rapidly made a name for herself and
proved so able in arguing cases that
the district attorney finally asked her
to join his staff.
Mrs. Foltz has a commanding pres
ence and an eloquent and pleasant
voice. Her eyes Hash as she speaks.
and she puts strength into every sen
tence, while her language evidences
wide reading and original thinking.
She is not masculine in any sense and
is a stanch antisuffragist. When asked
to give, her views recently on the
suffragist question she declared that
there was little likelihood thai the suf
frage would be extended to women ami
gave as her reason that the women of
the country generally were opposed to
entering a Held peculiarly masculine.
"Nature itself has decided the suf
frage question by making man strong
er than woman." she said. "Woman
was intended for the home and man
for the battle of life Woman has her
own sphere, and it is bounded by the
boundaries of family life. Take away
from woman the power to look up to
man. to regard him as her protector
and guardian, and you take away her
Mrs. Foltz has the following to say
about the power of the district attor
ney's office: "The district attorney is
not and should not be a prosecutor
pure and simple, because his position
and peculiar relation to the people
make him an officer of justice and not
a mere aveuger of crime.
"It should be his duty and privilege
to see that the scales of justice do not
incline any more to severity than to
condonement. and his aim should be
not to achieve a record number of con
victions, but rather to brinj; about the
attainment of absolute fairness in the
trials in which he takes part."
Servant Problem 3,000 Years Old.

have always been in antagonism to
each other. Reverse the situation ami
it would be the same, as it has been
ever since the world began. A Phila
delphia authority rejoices because at
Ford ham university it has come to
light that nearly 3.000 years B. C. the
Egyptians were having as poor a time
with servants as some people in the
United States are experiencing this
very day. It was not all rapture and
roses in the best families of Egypt ow
ing to this branch of domestic life not
bearing proper fruit. From some an
cient papyri which have recently been
unearthed in a tomb near Memphis
maxims have been deciphered that are
eye openers. The Egyptians must have
had a terrible time in their households
when such sentiments as these survive
the centuries: "In sooth thou shalt find
it hard to satisfy thy servants despite
thy earnest desires, for if thou be
harsh with them they shall say: 'He is
a cruel master. Lo. we shall go!* " Solo
mon knew whnt he was talking about
when he said there is nothing new un
der the sun. for it made no difference
to Pharaoh's servant, "even though
thou give princely gifts of gold [tips.
of coursel and precious stones to thy
higher servants, content is not in them,
for they shall say: "Lo. the master is
suddenly grown gracious! We shall
go.'" If any more of these manu
scripts dealing with this subject are
found it is hoped they may be deci
phered for the consolation of the world.
Misery always loves company, and
even these musty maxims of 3,000
years ago are as fresh as daisies.
