Hut the best tooth soaps, in the lata
. - Ifnage of the little (rirl. "cost money,"
and many a woman has been competed
to bny something less dainty than she
wanted, because she could not afford to
" buy the gilt-edged variety.
Here is a tooth soap which may be
" highly recommended. It is sweet-
smelling, nicc-tustinff, and cleansing
without having in its composition an
. ingredient which conld possibly harm
J ' the teeth. . Indeed, it is so mild that
those who require a "gritty" soap must
add pumice stone to the compound.
For this tooth soap get of powdered
tirris root a quarter of a pound, of pow-
t dcred myrrh two ounces, of powdered
white soap three ounces, of powdered
saffron one ounce nnd of oil of lavender
two drachms. Mix with one pound oi
precipitated chalk. ,
This makes quite a large quantity.
But the snap keeps well. Khntrfd you
not feel equal to mixing the ingredient,
yourself a druggist will toss thepr
(jet her for vim. without ciiarginffcint
any more than the separate ingredient
would cost if bought singly.
For the delicate teeth of children a
goo I powder can be miide from twe
ounces of Castile soap, powdered and
fined; one ounce of cuttle-fish bone,
pondered: four ounces of honey and I
flash of lavender for perfume.

HEK SISTER NELL
Why She Went South. to Take
Ca of Kate.
j.'When Tom Norton and his wife came
ypob tne north to tne prairies ot soatli-
extern Louisiana to try rice farming
they brought each their most cherished
Tom's consisted, for the most part, of
a varied and interesting collection of
lie brought, also, a very respectable
financial backing aDd a fuud of good,
practical common sense. These saved
him from collapse tvhen be saw his
theories knocked out by the hard facts
of his new life.
Mrs. Kate brought her etchmps, her
water colors, her jars, vases, rugs and
draperies. She had a rather worse
time arranging these in a 'Cadian
house than Tom had with his theories.
which is savings good deal. Itoth suc
ceeded fairly well, however, and at the
beginning of the second summer their
house had become the rendezvous of
"the boys," a lot of young fellows
l.-om various northern states most of
them, like Tom, rice planters. Their
home was at present a board shanty,
set in the midst of far-stretching rice
fie'ds. where they kept house for
themselves after the manner of men
tin watched of women. Small wonder
they found at Tom's a pleasant respite.
John Mcltae, whose rice flat was
over on llayon Nez Pique, came often
est and stayed longest, lie was older
than the rest and quieter.
He had dined with them, one breath
less noon, and afterward crossed to the
parlor, which Kate had a trick of keep
ing cool and shady in the hottest
weather. Kate tilled the pipes: Tom
took the sof a and M a j. stretched in a
most comfortable chair, smoked awhile
You're a decent sort of a fellow,
Tom," he said at length, "and I don't
envy you a thing, but this" with a
eomprehcasice wave of his hand
"isn't exactly calculated to make one
enthusiastic over lilack Jim's house
keeping." "This," included the excellent din
ner just eaten, the cool shade of the
pleasant room, an d Kate herself in a
most liecoining gowu.
"Well, then, why don't yon do as I
did, marry your lnst girl and bring her
down here to look after yon'.' queried
Mac puffed away awhile before he
answered: "I haven t any iesi girl, t
had one onee a nice, sensible girl "
"I hate nice, sensible girls." inter
rupted Kate; but Mac went calmly on:
"Father died when I was just out of
sch:Kl and left me with mother, four
children and a mortgage to look after.
I laid the case plainly licfore my girl,
told her here was liound to lie hard
work: but that I knew I could pull
through, and if she wanted to take hold
and help all right. If not, say so and
"She wrote me tho nicest kind of a
letter: said she couldn't think of com
ing between me and my duty to my
family; but she 'should always,' etc.
l!nt it was 'good-by' all right enough.
1 told yon she was sensible," he ex
plained. Here Kate sniffed contemptuously.
Itut even that failed to interrupt the
even tenor of Mao's tale.
"So I went to work alone, and, bv
George, how I did work! lint I pulled
through at last, as I knew I would:
paid the mortgage, educated the chil
dren and provided for mother." All
this was ilelircred between the puffs of
Mac's pipe in his usual quiet tone,
without a trace of emotion on his thin
fare, and from first to last his amused
smile did not nary.
He refilled his pipe and concluded, as
if done with the subject:
"My folks have got out of the habit
of thinking of me as a marrying man,
and 1 reckon, as they sav here, they're
"Tiiat was all right so long as there
was the mortgage, the mother and the
children to be considered, but now "
and Kate paused, suggestively.
"Itut now," said Mac, rising. "I've
'no call' to lie dawdling here. Carter
told me this morning that the twin
levees were seeping badly. I've got to
hold up all my water if I make a crop,
so I came into the Magnolia saloon for
something to sharpen up the shovels."
He paused by one of the tables and
took up a picture which lay there. It
was a bright-faced girL with an air
of spirited self-reliance.
"Xow, that's a nice girL" Mac
said, after a
"She just is!" said Kate, emphatic
ally. "It's my sister, Nell. She's nice,
but not 'nice and sensible,' like your
tick of a girl."
"Think not?" and Maceoutinued to
give the picture the same careful scru
tiny lie was wont to bestow upon a
seeping levee or a clogged pump.
"Xo, indeed!" replied Kate. "If there
was hard work to be done, Nell would
go at it with all the energy she devotes
nowadays to having a good time."
"That would knock a harder job than
yours silly. Mac" and Tom laughed.
"Well, if you don't believe me, just
go and sec my sister Nell. Mr. John
Mcliae." said Kate with great dignity.
"That sounds alluring, but I'm too
aged to run any risks. Before I do
anything I must be assured of several
Mac's eyes twinkled, but he spoke
quite as if Kate were an Rgent for a
new pump or a grading plow.
"What, for instance? Kates tone
was crisp enough to have warned Tom,
but Mac went ou calmly.
"Well." he saiJ, meditatively, "this"
and again his gesture included the
arrangement of the room "and the
dinners you're always giving us, and
the way yoo have of meeting Tom in a
pretty gown when he comes .a hot and
tired. But I don't want to be too
grasping. I wouldn't insist at first,
anyway on sitting with her in the
dnsk in a hammock, as I saw vou and
Tom th ing the other night."
"tVouldn t you?" asked Kate, with
ralm derision. Mac laid down the pic
ture, rose and shook himself.
"Well. Cartcr'll be furious if I'm not
back by supper time. Good-by."
He came back, however, ont of the
glaring sunlight to say:
"I fear I must insist upon another
"hing. I'm not proud, but there's a
bout foul Clothes tbat drives
me to despair whem I contemplate my
"Better set p a clothes brash: 11"
cheaper than iny other arrangement,"
Tom groaned an emphatio assent to
this prop jsit ion and Mac finally mount
ed his nony and took his way across the
not prairie toward the distant timber
line which marked the course of the
This was in early June, and the Nor
tons saw no more of him daring the

It was in the dusk of one of the first
July days that Mac rode to their gate
"Good-by," he called, without dis
monnting. They left tbe porch and came down
the moonlighted walk for explanation
which he did not at once offer.
"What is that?" he asked at length,
lespectfully indicating with his whip
the fleecy affair in which Kate had
wrapped herself against the chill of the
"A shawL Nell made it for me at
Christmas," she said, holding np a cor
ner for his inspection.
"I've always thought of shawls as
ugly, checked things," Mac comment
ed, and then abrupt ly: "I'm going
north to see mother and the boys."
There was a curious pause in this
announcement, as if its ending had
been reconsidered. Mac's usual quiet
seemed reinforced to-night by an added
constraint, and after a little he rode
away iuto the soft radiance of the
The latter part of the week Kate re

THE CHRISTIAN HERALD is sent, post

Last year some WAITED just TOO LONG
and felt very much grieved and disap
pointed at receiving their money back.
A few even wrote some rather unkind things, claiming that we ought to have given them the preference. But
we must be fair to all, and hence, FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED.
THE CHRISTIAN HERALD once introduced into a Home will soon become an abiding and ever welcome gnest,
Its Pictures, its Music, its Poetry and Stories delight the eye, the ear, the heart, the mind, and make each issue as
bracing as October, and as
beautiful as June.
