THE AUBUS. TUTJH S DAY. JUNE 27 1901,

School days are danger days for American girl3.
Often physical collapse follows, and it takes years to re
cover the lost vitality. Sometimes it is never recovered.
Perhaps she is not over-careful about keeping her feet
dry ; through carelessness in this respect the monthly sick
ness is usually rendered very severe.
Then begin ailments -which should be removed at once,
or they will produce constant suffering. Headache, faint
ness, slight vertigo, pains in the back and loins, irregularity,
loss of sleep and appetite, a tendency to avoid the society of
others are symptoms all indicating that woman's arch-enemy
is at hand.
This need not be so if mothers would have a thought for
the physical condition of their daughters, and see to it that
they have proper assistance.
LiVdla E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has
helped many a young .cprl over this critical period. With it
they have gone through their trials with courage and safety.
With its proper use the young girl is safe from the peculiar
dangers of school years and prepared for hearty womanhood.

Mrs. Otto II. Matz, who has succeeded
Mrs. Arthur Kdwards as president of
tho Chicago Woman's club, is one of
the most thoroughly respected women
in Chicago. She is the wife of Otto

been prominent in educational, club
and musical circles. She Is an accoui
pllKhed musician and absolutely devot
ed to her art. I-'or nearly 13 years she

rlous philanthropic schemes. The big
charity ball, which season after seasou
was such an important social and phil
authropic a Hair, drew forth rome of
her best efforts. Indeed, to her was
accredited much of the success regular
ly attained by that function. A hlle a
zealous worker lu the club Mch has
so signally honored her and with which
she lias closely allied herself for nearly
13 years, she has never entered Into

a distinct honor worthily bestowed.
Tbe i:vl!a of Tea Drinking.
Lady Jeune has been taking up the
tea drinking question and has written
with some warmth upou the habit of
excessive tea drinking on the part of
young women In domestic service, a
habit which she believes to be increas
"I have no hesitation In saying that
It Is the constant driukiiig of strong tea
which makes the women of our tolliug
masses delicate and their children an;e-
mlc, for not only do these latter inherit
that weakuess from their mothers, but
become even jrreater sinners in tlds di
rection than their parents. Nothing."
she continues, "has more seriously In
jured the health of women of the work
ing classes than the cheapening of tea."
The habit of drinking stewed" tea
is in the highest degree deplorable, for
it Is well known that it is the tannin in
tea which is injurious, and this nat
urally is extracted in a very strong de
cree when the teapot is allowed to re
main on the stove for an hour or more.
Then, when cups of this obnoxious
beverage are drunk promiscuously-, sup
posedly to refresh the tired system and
give one a "nllip up" then Is the harm
done. In reality one Is pouring so
much poison into the system and utter
ly destroying the nerves. Lady Jeune's
timely warning ought not to fall uikui
deaf ears. "In every well ordered
household," she says, "the quantity of
ea per head Is regulated, and if that
amount were adhered to the mischief
would be lessened." There Is nothing
like a rigid adherence to laws of limit
lu cases where there Is a tendency to
overrun judicious quantities.
Cocoa," continues Lady Jeune, "Is
not only harmless, but nourishing and
can always be kept ready. The evil Is,
perhaps, even greater in the kitchen
than in other departments of the house
owing to the heat in which cooks and
6cullery maids have to work."
A bright pupil in the Girls' High
school in Twelfth street, New York,
was Instructed to write for the edifica
tion of her class in English a brief es
say on the approaching picnic seasou.
She was evidently not partial to pic
nics, for here Is what she wrote:
May parties will soon be ripe, and
the June walk seasou will follow hard
upon. The difference between a May
party and a June walk is a simple mat
ter of chronology. Eai has Its queen
of brief authority and its chaperon of
absolute sway. Each has also Its ham
per, which is as deadly an enemy to
the Manhattan populace as the frying
pan to the Kansas farmhand. I took
an Inventory of one of these hampers
last sear, and, as I was a member of
the physiology class at the time. It
startled me out of a season's growth.
"When the hamper was opened, tho
chaperon drew forth one bag of sand-'
wlches and one pie; one bottle of ,
pickles, one pie; one sponge cake, one
pie; one roast chicken, one pie; one bot
tle of lemon juice, one pic; one bag of
awiorted cookies, one pie; one dozen
doughnuts, one pie; one package of bis
cuits and one pie. This was all. except
that there were a few extra pies In tho
bottom for the purpose, I suppose, of

Now it is the street tar strap that is
loaded with deadly gVrms. The latest
tale of -microbe woe tomes from a wo
man who to protect a fresh pair of
white gloves put her handkerchief
over the strap while going to the
theater a short time ago. On her way
home she was again compelled to
stand, and once more the handkerchief
came between her glove aud the leath
Whether it was after that or during
the evening at the theater that 6he
once thoughtlessly iut the handker
chief to her face is a letail that 6he
does not recall, but two days after
ward a pain on her lips became so in
tolerable that she was compelled to see
a doctor, who found her suffering from
Incipient blood poisoning, which it was
already too late for nun to prevent.
Ihe most that he could do was to
watch her carefully through a long at
tack of Illness, which at one time
threatened to end fatally.
He attributed this to some poisonous
substance which had passed to her
handkerchief from the strap, and thac
was his diagnosis the moment he heard
the story of the ride on the trolley car.
She fortunately recovered, and her phy
sicians think that the present disfigure
inent to her face which resulted from
the necessity of an operation will hot
be permanent. The case has convinced

Lady of the Carter.
The king Is everywhere placing be
side him in his public acts the gracious
lady who Is the partner of his throne.
The innovation of creating her majesty
a "Lady of the Garter" Is. In fact, only
a return to original precedent, for at
the first creation of the order there
were lady members. In the little
church of Ewelme, Oxfordshire, may
be seen to this day the memorial statue
of one of the noble ladies who was an
original "lady unignt, and wnen ner
late majesty ascended the throne aud
became thereby sovereign of the most
noble order a special messenger was
sent to Ewelme to find out where the
emblematical "garter" was worn on
that effigy. It was found to be placed
on the left arm above the elbow, and
there Queen Victoria accordingly wore
the strap of gold embroidered blue tis
sue with its buckle and loosely falling
end pendent therefrom. It can be
6een distinctly in a portrait by Winter
halter painted iu 1S13. The garter is
buckled on midway between shoulder
and elbow round a short, white satin
sleeve puff and half concealed by a
lace bertha that passes round the shoul
ders. Her late majesty, however, nev
er appointed any other "lady," and she
held her own position by hereditary
right as tho relguing sovereign, so the
inclusion of Queen Alexandra by the
king is an Interesting return to ancient
precedent. Loudon Illustrated News.

of this town have a craze for collecting

were filched. No. they don't take them
heinselves. The average younj wom

like this Is likely to be worth several

not cut down our profits to any large
extent, but the practice Is annoying,
and for that reason more than any oth

Although one might naturally won

ever care to wear a serpent, still they
do, and at the jewelers' the reptile of
graceful sinuosity Ij one of the most
approved motifs of ornamentation. The
old time snake bracelet has come into
style again and Is exhibited as the very
latest novelty for the adornment of
milady's fair arm.
These new bracelets of shimmering
lengths of gold are exquisitely beauti
ful in the simulation of the snake's
ealy surface and in their graceful
flexibility. A glittering jewel forms
the eye of the serpent a diamond,
emerald, ruby or sapphire.
