WITH the coining of cooler weather comes also renewed interest in
the things that help to adorn women when they display tbeir

as are all the rage now in Paris, London, New York and other centers of
fashion. They are the products of foreign skill in designing and exquisite
workmanship. The lower pendant on the right side is made up of diamonds,
pearls and gray enamel, the whole forming a dainty ornament for milady's
corsage. The one immediately above it holds diamonds, pearls and aquama

HERE'S A SCHOOL FOR TEACHING WIVES
TIIERE Is a man of my acquaintance—and be thinks himself a fairly
Intelligent and well Informed man, too—who was greatly astonished
when his wife told him, shortly after their marriage, that she did
not know how to sew. "Why," he said, "1 thought all women knew
how to sew naturally." And he was offended when his wife laughed at the
idea that sewing is a natural gift with all women. And so it is with other
branches of work generully held to be comprised in women's sphere. They
do not come naturally to all women, and some of them are not easily learned

by any women. To remedy the defects in the housewifely education of wives
and women about to enter the matrimonial state a "school for wives" has
been established in London. In it the scholars are taught everything that is
likely to be useful to them in their Wedded lives, such as cooking, sewing, the
purchasing of supplies, laundering, etc. Nothing is neglected in the school's
curriculum. The pupils are even taught how to stain floors, as is seen in the
accompanying illustration. It is believed that many a Londoner will Lu.ve
cause to bless the happy inspiration which led his wife to the school, since
the results of the instruction given there are bound to be seen in decreased
household bills. The school will no doubt be imitated elsewhere.

CLEANING WITH GASOLINE.
How to Use It In Washing Soiled Gar-
merits and Feathers.
To clean with gasoline the first thing
to do is to obtain gasoline of a suit
able grade. A simple experiment will
determine this and make you inde
pendent of the advice of your dealer.
Pour a little on a piece of white writ
ing paper of good quality. If the gaso
line leaves no trace of grease on the
paper after evaporation you will be
safe in using it: otherwise it is useless
for your purpose.
Second, buy enough gasoline both to
wash and rinse your garment. Two
gallons are enough for a dress, pro
vided you wash it in a proper recep
tacle, which retards evaporation by ex
posing a comparatively small surface
to the air. Many women fail of suc
cess because they do not realize the
necessity of rinsing the garment in
plenty of clean gasoline. The gasoline
that is left after a garment is washed
can be allowed to settle and the clear
gasoline at the top used again. It is
not advisable, however, to use the
same gasoline too often.
Now as to the method of procedure
for garments in general. Soak the gar
ment in gasoline. If it is much soiled
twenty-four hours is not too long. In
stead, your labor will be lightened and
the garment saved much destructive
rubbing. Be sure that the vessel in
which you place the garment and gas
oline has a tight cover. A wash boiler
can be used. Cover the opeuing with
two or more Turkish towels, and over
these place the lid and w reight it down
Procure a small washboard and, put
ting it into the boiler, rub the gar
ment vigorously, just as if using water.
Before wetting the garment It is a
good plan to locate all the spots that
need particular attention by basting
around them with a thread of con
trasting color. They are then easy to
find when the garment is wet The
under parts of sleeves, the neckbands
and the hems of skirts mast receive
special attention in the matter of rub
bing. Do not expect the gasoline to do
all the work, for it will disappoint you.
Rinse the garment in clear gasoline
and hang in the sunshine and air to
dry. Finally press it with an iron of
suitable temperature to remove the
creases and also whatever odor may
remain. During the whole process up
to the pressing keep your work out of
There are a few special ways of
using gasoline which it may be well to
mention. White ostrich feathers can
be cleaned by using gasoline and flour.
Stir in enough tiour to make a thin
white paste. Thoroughly shake the
feather in this. Dry by waving in the
sunshine and air. The Hour will shake
out. leaving your feather white, soft
Chiffon rachings which are soiled,
but not crushed, can be rejuvenated by
shaking them in clear gasoline and
then drying them in sunshine and air.
Small articles, such as fancy neckwear
in general, which must be treated gen
tly, can be put into a fruit jar nearly
filled with gasoline. Using a rubber
ring, screw the top on tightly. Let the
articles soak for some time and then
shake them vigorously. Rinse in the
same manner in clear gasoline. Dry in
the sunshine and air.
Coat collars can often be cleaned by
wetting a cloth in gasoline and then
rubbing the soiled part. If the fabric
will warrant it and is much soiled use
an old toothbrush for this purpose in
stead of the cloth.
Neckties cannot always be cleaned
by the simple rubbing process. If that
is so try using a brush dipped in gaso
line to scrub the soiled parts. Satin.
of course, does not permit of this treat
ment. Grease spots can be removed
by rubbing the spots with a good
white soap after the article has been
soaked in gasoline. Hub hard and
Gasoline in which soap has been
used cannot be used a second time.—
