There is a noticeable tendency of (ha
time against over-ornamentation in do
mestic arrh'tocture. This tendency is
the more important for the reason that
It proceeds from the beat class of our
na-iety and is alwlted by architects of
the highest reputation. It is proper that
the craze for "old furniture" should be
followed by a croze for old style houses.
Not only the copying of the stylos of
Queen Anne and the Gooses, but the re
modelling of old homes has become a
marked characteristic of the prevailing
taste and is quite a fashion with pcoplo
of the highest culture.
One of the liest example of style for
the remodelling of a house, either for
country or suliurhaii resilience, is shown
In our illustration. Thin is the famous
"Lincoln Cottage" in the Soldiers Home
nt Washington. It was built anterior to
the war period la-fore the rage for over
oniauientati.m had gien Ihe country so
manv alsiminalions, nuslclcd after the
most bijirre French taste. Xobo.lv who
ever visits the Soldiers Home ever fnila to
admire the graceful cottngea which sur
round It, and form the residence of the
officer. Their ipnet, linine-like np.'nr
ance, caiiacious verandahs, broad win
dows ami generalairof ronm.comrort mid
quiet elegance stamp their de-in as in
the best spirit of domestic nicliiloctiiro.
This style of house also lends ilsclf must
rcndilv to the highest effects of modern
furnishing and interior decoration.
How to Avuld a Cold.
Curing a cold is not alwaysensy. Tho
irreat thing Is to avoid iu An almo-t
infallible preventative of a cold in a daily
oold morning bath, but every one cannot
take this. There are some people who
cannot endure the shock of a cold buih;
and it certainly takes a strong constitution
to get outpf bed and take a cold bath in
a cold room. A warm bath should only
be taken at night, or when one can avoid
exposure to the open air for an hour or
two afterwards. A young friend of ours
Jm id the foundation of a cold from which
he never recovered by taking a warm
bath and going out immediately after
on chill October day.
Another cause of oolds Is over-clothing.
If you are going to take a long drive on
a oold day, there is not much danger of
hiabut,"in exercising or walking, de
fiend on the exercise to keep you warm
and wear fewer wraps. It is a bad
fashion to accustom one'e-self to the use
of a muffler. The least exposure without
it is sure to be followed by a sore throat,
and children, at least, seldom remember
to don this superfluous garment with
more than ntful regularity. If you are
subject to colds never sit and toast your
self over the Are, be it ever so tempting.
JWvmbor that it is not in really cold
reethnr that the severest colds are taken.
It is during the treacherous days of a
thaw, and duringtiie autumn days, which
open so brightly, with a warm sun shining
until the middle of the afternoon, when
a chill, raw wind arises, which we never
seem to learn to prepare for.
Cold foot is a serious reason for the
ojsj of children from babies up. Babies
are U young, and most children too
thoughtless to know why they are on.
cxMfortable, and so, unless tome wiser
bead orders an occasional toasting of the
little feet, Oolds are the result, Always

"There ran be no question of Mattle
Mitchell's superior beauty," is the decisive
answer of those who do not hear the clink

her as she looks lu a ballroom In a pose she
often takes, that of sitting on a low divan
and turning her adornble face upward to
the gallants who IhuiiI over her. When
she Is nt her Iwst aha wears a gown of helio

the violet Is shown In the cincture about

star is fastened In tho hair Just above the

But the wonder of her lability Is that she
never looks disturbed, even in the stilling
atmosphere of a ball room. Oilier girls
nay make those furtive little nilsi aliout
the nose and forehead which mean a "dry
