Way of Womrn Know, to Fame.
A beautiful mid faultiest band is a mora
rare and unusual gift than a beautiful face,
and now that tba fashionable young woman
la expected to display a very mannish dis
regard of tbe delicacy and whiteness of her
Angers and to blister and burn them through
the summer months playing all manner of
outdoor games guiltless of gloves, tbeir ugli
ness prraenta quite a formidable problem
when tbe return to tbe frivolities and fluff
of civilisation ilwnaiKls a sudden transforma
tion from summer sunburn to winter snow
and softness. A pair of brown strong bands
clasped about a canoe paddle or wielding a
tennis racket with strength and skill as well,
present a more c-harming picture to the
masculine mind than those same brown
bands folded in idle grace over the frills of
dainty house dress ami looking all the darker
and courier in contrast ; and the tender touch
of a woman's hand never could arouse any
of the ecstatic thrills which the new school of
novelists delight in depicting if the hand was
hard with chIIoiim-i, rough with half healed
blisters, and the iniressioii conveyed strange
ly suggestive of t he carets of a grater.
No; a woman's band, to be the thing of
beauty the Creator dmigned it to be, should
have a delicacy of coloring, a sktnderuess of
outline and a touch like the sweep of a but
terfly's wing against the breuat of a rose.
Besides, an unduly, ill kept hand Is like bad
grammar hardly reconcilable with the idea
of gentility. It is hardly possible to materi
ally change the stiiipe of our band, but it ia
said that. If siikJI, taieriiig thimbles be put
upon a growing child's angers each night and
held in place by tight glovea of kid, that it
will, If persisted in a number of years, make
them slvnder and shapely. Few people, espe
cially those young enough to lie affected by
it, would submit to this treatment, aud it Is
hardly warrantable, as a white, blue veined
haud, with ni-ely polibed nails, is a delight
to tbe eye, wlnle IU slmpe may lie and is an
index to the owuer's character which he who
runs may read.
Of court every lady keeps her hands clean,
and it is hardly necessary to mention that
perfect cleanliness Is the first requisite to a
oft and while baud. This cleanliness is only
brought atiout by two or three daily scrub
bings with a bruh, and with the vigor usual Iv
applied to remove the grime from the little
list of tlie proverbially small boy. No matter
how dainty niny be your occupation, the
water uoi should be warm, not hot, and the
p lw generous in quantity and purest of
the pure in quality. There are several effica
cious remedies for whitening the bands used
by tbeir advoa-nte and inveutorm. One la
the use of lemon Julceandglyceriue; another
which is Very highly recommended is Indian
meal and glycerine; and still auothor Is tbe
country girl's lotion, sour buttermilk, wboas
acid removes stain and suubum, aud whose
oil Is peculiarly beneficial in making the skin
oft and smooth. Auy preparation used at
night is more efficacious if kid gloves are
worn, and perhus no wiser and less harmful
process can lw suggested than the careful
cleansing through lit day with warm water
and castile snap, and tbe application at night
or rose ssliir aud glycerine covered with kid
or rubber gloves.
Handsome nails, w hich display crescent
ot white at the base and a delicate pink tlut
throughout. ar as much a gift as the poet's
geuiusorthe artist's skill, but one visit to
the manicure will enable you to see how even
the most ugly oues may be attractive aud
pleasing if nice care is taken to trim away
the rough skin at the base, which should never
lw doue without first soakiug thnni in warm
Water, to tile the edges in a smooth curve,
following the outlines of the linger tip, and
to polish the surface every day. Probably
an hour each week devoted to tlie care of tbe
nails, with a little time spent each day in
polishing and cleaning thorn carefully, wiil
keep them in nice order, and they should
never Iss cleaued with any kind of a sharp

It Is .aid by salesladies iu glove stores that
a lady w ho can wear a No. 6 glove is as un
usual as one who wears a No. 1J shoe, aud
that a large band looks better smaller gloved
iu a mou.su, ue ta ire of undressed kid, lcauss
of the loose folds about the wrut, aud that
tight sleeves are as unbecoming to a large
hand, whether gloved or ungloved, as low
heels to a long foot. New York Sun.
The Well Hrcl .irl.
IX) you know mauy well bredirlsf Oh,
they cau always be told.
A well bred girl thanks the man w bo gives
her a seat iu the street car, and does it in a
quiet aud not au effusive way.
She doesn't turn around to look after gam
blers or losing actors on the street, and she
doesn't Uiiuk mat ber good looks are causing
the men to stare at her.
She doesn't wear all her jewelry iu tbe day
time, and she understands that diamond
rings, earrings and bracelets were iu tended
for the evening alone.
She doesn't go to supper after the theatre
ia over aloue with man.
She does not declare that she never rides in
She does not accept a valuable present
from auy man unless she expects to marry
She does not tali; loud iu public places.
She does not speak of her mother In a sar
castic way, and the shows her the loving
deference that is ber due.
She doesn't want to be a man and sue doesn't
try to Imitate him by wearing stiff bats,
smoking cigarettes and using an occasional
big, big D.
bhe doesn't say she bates women, and aba
has some good, true f hernia among them.
She doesn't wear boots without tbeir but
tons or a frock that needs mending.
bhe doesn't scorn the use of the needle, and
expects some day to make clothes for very
Uttlo peopla who will be very doar to bar.
That's tbe we'd fared girl; saw's too sort that
you want for your wife, who will be faithful
through sickness and through health, through
sorrow and, if nd be, through shame; Who
will never waver In her love, and In whom
the heart of her husband may safely trust.
Bleep conies readily enough, with ber swift
feet of a goddess "shod with wool," to visit the
pillows of young and healthful people. But
she sometimes delsys sadly In coming to com
fort the aged or the uivsJid. Ho for the
grandmanunas or aunties who are delicate
and easily chilled we ran make a pair of wool
shoes In which they may go to meet Sleep
half way. Indeed, any and all of our frieuds
will find these simple and pretty slippers very
acceptable. And a dozen pairs of them, in
bright assorted colors, is a cheerful gift to
send to a hospital ward ; or to add through
tbe year to one's stock of gifts made ready
betimes for Christmas.
Himple as is the pattern. It has been care
fully planned; and will be found to make
neatly fitting and comfortable shoe. A skein
of Oerniantown wool. In white or some deli
cate or bright color, and a little Shetland
wool or knitting silk for the ankle edge, are
the materials required.
With a bone crochet needle muse a chain
of eight stitches. Work, In short crochet,
all around this chain, making two stitches In
the fourth chain, so that there are fifteen in
the row. Work three rows around this little
oval, widening at each end and at tbe middle
where the first widening was made. After
these rows, widen only at the middle until
twenty or twenty-two rows are completed.
Now work bark and forth, omitting eleven
stitches five on each side of tbe middle stitch.
These sixteen rows are crocheted alternately
ou the back and the front Imps of the work,
so that the stitch may rnvmble the rest of
Crochet together at the heel, and begin tbe
ankle. This is quite plain, six rows in abort
crochet, 1111111,; a stitch at the corners where
the eleven stitches were left. This narrowing
sIihssi a slender ankle.
Then work one row of double crochet, for
a coid or riblmn to lw run In. This row is
not narrowed, neither are the two plaiu rows
of short irrocbet which follow it
Now with the Shetland wool or the silk
make a row of scaliojm thus: one short cro
chet, miss one, live double crochet, miss one,
one short crochet Repeat
If silk ia used, be careful to fasten it strong
ly and leave an inch of tbe silk run In at tbe
wroug side of tbe work. A crocheted cord,
or, still prettier, a narrow white ribbon run
in around tbe ankle and tied in dainty bow
finishes the pretty gift whioh may be aocom
panied with the most graceful expression of
your good wishes for a "good night and hap

Here ft a description of tbe beautiful Miss
Ilargous' boudoir: She is a dark eyed, Span
ish looking woman, aud the room was fur
nished with a view to formiug a becoming
background ftr her own loveliness. The
walls are of ro igh finished plaster, colored a
pale, dull gold with a frieze ot dull, gray
green flowers. Tbe hangings and carpets are
tbe same dull green and the curtains are em
broidered with gold of a tint to match the
walla. On either aide of the deep tiled fire
place, with briias andirons, is a wide lounge.
That on the I ight ia covered with a tiger
akin, the bead of it lying on tbe floor and
making a footsool for the occupant's slim,
slippered feet. This and the opposite lounge,
which is covert d with a black bear skin, are
heaped with ci sbions of a pale gold and a
red that Is aim t black it b. so dark. At the
end ot oue ot these lounge stan.U a tall
scrolled la-ass lamp with a pule gold shade
and uuderneatl. It a table of pierced copper
work from Per ja, which holds a set of Per
sian porcelain ips and saucers and an old
Persian silver t pot for afternoon tea. On
either tide of the window stands a big dull
red earthen jar, which holds a tall palm that
is almost a tree and tbe two form an arch of
green over tl window. There is a long

up with all tbe appliances for writing, in sil

The Sex aad Books.
Why is it that the books in tbe bouse usu
ally belong to t M men? asks a correspondent
ot Tbe Cleveu.nd Press. Married women
seldom accumulate them, but speak of the
room used for leading aud writing as "my
husband's libraiy." And verily, it is his. Tbe
other rooms of tbe bouse tbe bust mud and
wife enjoy in ct inuion, but iu this the wife
abdicates all rhj ht except the right to keep
it In order. Perhaps there is a shelf iu some
comer where sba tuts tucked away a row of
school books a French grammar, a botany,
a universal history relics of ber seminary
days. These ah dusts carefully, ami touches

uobly, the scieu Jsts who were to assi-t her in
applying "class ned knowledge to every day

she proceeds wl h the dusting.
Women bsve many temptations to spend
tbeir small t-bai ge, not for tobacco or at the
bar, but for bi s of bric-a-brac, trifles for
personal adorn nent, embroidery silks and
table delicacies. Some women may shop three
times a week an 1 leave none of tbeir money
at the booksellei s unless they buy books for
gifts. To such t il books are alika They cars
not for differences lot quality of paper or sue
of print, aud so long as tbe binding is pretty
no matter if it te not durable. Theexperience
or buying a boo!; to read would be quite novel
with many won en. Tbe libraries of the city

teapot, the expensive dessert and put the

classic poem as t f an ugly Chinese jar.
A True Wife.
It Is not to iweep tbe house, make tbe
beds, darn the socks and cook the meals
chiefly that a turn wants a wife. If this is
all be needs, a strvant can do it cheaper than
wife. If this is all, when a young man
calls to see a lad r, send bira into tbe pantry
to taste the bra id and cake she has made;
send him to inspxt tbe needlework and bed
snaking; or put a broom in his band and
and him to w teas ita usa. Such thlnfcs
are unportaaA, t nd the wise young man will
quickly look after them. But what the true
young man wants with a wife is ber com
panionship, sympathy and love. The way
of life has many dreary places in it, and a
Euan naods a w J to go with him. A man
la sometimes o' ertakeu by misfortunes; be
meets with failures and defeat; trials and
temptations betot him, and be needs one to
stand by and sympathize. He has some
bard battles to fight with poverty ,nemies
and tin, and be needs m woman that, when
be puts bit arm around her, be feels he has
something to flgjt for; she will help him to
fight; she will put ber lips to bis ear and
whisper words of counsel, and her hand to
his heart and Impart Inspiration. All
through life, tirough storm aud through
sunshine, conflict and victory, through ad
verse aud thrtugh favoring winds, man
needs a woman's love. The Lady.
The Cooking Clock.
The latest ach evenient In portable double
action furniture la tbe cooking clock. It It
made of white wood, stained cherry, and It

pulled out like a drawer from Its resting
place. Below tbe ttove It a receptacle for

parched a oaletdar clock, back of which is
attached a gaeul oe vapor tank, which is con

Leads a Dnal Life.
Miss Jeanette Gilder, the editor of The
Critic, leads, as it were, a dual life. At home
and in society she is entirely feminine, and
just what any other clever, tweet tempered
woman would be. She is passionately fond
of children, and is devoted to the pretty in
fants of ber brother. But in her office her
whole manner changes. She Is a thorough
woman of business, and during office hours
works very hard. She suits her attire to her
work, and as the feminine dress cramps the
neck, throat and arms, she has adopted a
costume almost entirely masculine. On the
street in winter she wears a long, dark ulster,
with a white handkerchief folded under the
edges. In her office she wears dark skirts,
kilted plainly to the waist, with no overdress;
the waist Is a half fitted sack coat, with the
cut at the throat the same as that of a man.
and with the same pocket. Undor it is a
close fitting waistcoat, in which are watch
and chain; a plain standing collar and
cravat are entirely masculine in tone. She
even wears wide cuffs with heavy link
buttons and a seal ring. Her brother,
Richard Watson Gilder, is the editor of Tbe
Century. Chicago Herald.
She Conld Make Toast.
At a Woman's Kxchange in a neigh boring
city a lady thrown upon hor own resources
applied for employment and was asked what
particular article of food was her specialty
or in what style of fancy work she excelled.
Tbe applicant laughed a little nervously.
"1 don't do any fancy work," she replied,
"and I do not recall any special success in
the kitchen unless," she finished with another
laugh, "it be toast. My family have always
praised my toast."
Tbe manager was kind hearted, and there
was a restaurant attached to the exchange.
"Be on hand for a few mornings and even
ings," she said, "aud we will try jour toast."
It was tried and found to be the perfection
of the article, crisp yet tender, aud of an
even golden brown something uot one rook
in fifty seems able to serve. Anyone who
took it once ordered it again, and presently
the exchange found its lunch room had a
reputation for toast, and its maker was per
manently installed. Exchange.

The latest thing of all in the way of chairs

you know, has quite gone out of use for such
purposes. Dainty French tables, with three
or more shelves, inconceivably light, are a
novelty; tbe shelves are shaped like shells, in
sections, and the legs take apart like fishing
rods. French cabinets, too you see the Par
