THE AKGUS. WEDNESDAY, MAKCH. 9, 1892
Snuuy Y-!lon, Translucent Blue, Rose,
Muliojuny anil Other Bun.
It is astonishing in these days of decora
tion and home Ix-nutiTyin that so little is
known nlxxit stains. Bays t he Kansas City
Architect and Builder, which proceeds to
Rive the following hints to the ignorant:
In the first place all of the transparent col
ors and some of what are called opaque
eolorscan lc use.1 as stains if sufficiently
thinned by the use of tui p; n! ine. llnvr
sienna is one of the most useful, and if
mixed very thin will trive, when varnished,
the sunny yellow of yellow pine; and as it
does not show dust or footmarks is moot
ttseful in a summer rott-ie.
Prussian iilue makes a beautiful stain if
mixed very thin with turpentine when
varnished it has ull the translucent effect
of water. It must be Prussian blut no
other blue will do, and with a very large
proportion rf turpentine. Iu fact, it can
hardly be mixed loo thin. One cannot lay
too preat stress on the thinniuu of stains,
for that is the great secret of staining
that, and to npply it evenly with the brush
and with due modesty let the writer say
that these stains have been pronounced
very good by professional decorators.
There is one loveiy floor in a certain
country house of crimson lake: diluted it
makes a iM'autiful rose; deepen it and you
have a crimson. IJiunt sienna makes al
mosta perfect mahogmiy and matches one's
old Chippendale pieces admirably. Haw
timber makes a very good stain if greatlj
diluted, and very thin Vandyke brown on
Georgia pine has a particulary good effect.
On white pir.e the umber is le.st. The va
riation in color of a stain should depend
simply fin its dilution with turpentine; it
should never lie mixed.
The walla of one rvom in a country cot
tage which was ceiled wiaii Georgia pine
sre stained with simple diluted white.
The delicate blue and pink colors of the
wood show through the white with an
opalesceDt effect which is lovely. The in
ventor of tuis decoratiou has been much
amused by people asking hew such a result
could be produced; it was so very simple.
Only the floors should be varnished; the
stain on a wall is prettier ar.d softer with
out. For a varnish, hard od finished is as
satisfactory as anything, and is the cheap
est. Put it on just as it conies prepared,
and a day and a night will dry it.
A Siiii:U- a:ul 1'retty Lamp Sliudc.
A pretty way to m ike nn inexpensive
lamp shade is dcscriU-d in The National
Puilder: TaUe pink cheese cloth, wet it
thoroughly and then, after it ha3 been
doubled several times, twit i: until it
doubles it.ifif up in a knot. Secure it from
untwisting and wipe it dry with a towel
and put away to dry. It will take about
ten days tn dry it thoroughly, during
which time it si,nM n it be disturU-d. On
unrolling the cloth it will 1. found bounti
fully creped, and Ian :p shade can be made
in the same way as tissue paper by simply
cutting a hole for the chimney in the cen
ter of the cloth. The top should be ar
ranged with a high niching and a brood
satin ribbon of exactly the same shade
fasteiiim: it. A fringe of soft lace makes a
beautiful t rimming, anil the ruche at the
top is a!-o improved by a lace edging.
How In Kr- Ihe Carving Knife Sharp.
A carving knife needs to have a different
kind of an edge from a ra.or. The steel
which ordinarily accompanies a carving
knife and fork is very well to give a finish
ing touch to the edge, but an ordinary
whetstone, i.uch as a reaper uses for his
scythe or sickle, is the most useful imple
ment the carver can keep at hand. One or
two rubs on each side of a knife whets it
tip mightily, and then two or three finish
ing touches from the steel and the knife is
iu order to do most excellent execution,
says The Industrial World. Carving with
proper tools is an easily acquired accom
plishment, but without them a man at the
head of a table seems awkward, and his
evident lalor and pain detract from the
pleasure tho-e at his table feel in partaking
of his good fure.
A Convenient Combination.
Hanging bags or pockets to serve as
catchalls and for holding dusting cloths,
etc., are decorative and convenient articles
that assume variety of forms. Newer
than many u the combined bag and
pocket represented in the cut, which needs
i "V',1 ' 'it
A COMSIXEP HAG AXll fOCKHT.
The foundation of this is a long, sfraight
bag in either plain silk, cashmere or cre
tonne, edged with lace and set off with a
jacket in fancy material, gayly lined and
raped with a ribbon rosette, matching
Iho draws; rings.
Make a moid of lemon jelly. Cut bananas
in slices and Hue the bottom and sides of a
mold. Pour the jelly in slowly that it
may not float the fruit. Keep in ice water
until hard. If you have no mold, use a
small, round glass dish. Put the sliced
bananas on l lie Ijottom, then turn in a
little jell-; when hard put a row around
the sides with space between, and fill the
center with bananas; mid more jelly,
enough to cover. Reserve a cupful of
jelly, and, when ready to serve, break this
up lightly and scatter it over the top.
A Kindling Kliyme 1'urty.
A rushing rhyme party is a very enjoy
able entertainment. The Housekeeper
tells how such a party is'conducted. Pencil,
paper and subject must be given each
guest; they, at a given signal, begin to
write, and at the end of fire minutes each
must read what he has written. A com
aiittee decides on the best production and
prizes are awarded accordingly. Another
plan is to have the last word of each line
writteu; the guest to fill in the omitted
words. For instance, "night, sing, bright,
ring," are the last words of four succes
sive lines, and the writer must use them
in order and yet her lines have sense. The
lines produced are in various grades, from
the sublime to the ridiculous.
The liain Which Col. Pope Ways Will
t'we l'ram UItIbs Pi per Atten
tion to This Important Statu r.
Col. Al ert A. Pope, in a contempor
ary article ia a prominent review, touches
a strong a-gument in urging road im
provemen', as a valuable factcr of gens
era! financial profpriiy. lie argues that
all over th.s counirj the small townshave
been range d in lines which arc coincident
with the liics of railroad that traverse the
land. In much the sitne manner the
rura1. popu ation. especially in new re
gion?, is rtnged in Haes not far from the
railroads o i to'.h sides of tht m. In other
words the cdvictases that the rail
roads tCorl in way of transportation
fiCiiii'HS t.ttrct to thsm the popula
tion of the country. Thi3 easy means
of trautit a so enables cities to increase
enormously in s!z2 and number. Panu
iag thU arairmct he contends that fine
country highways wii! be practically co
equal wiih ihe ex'easlon of the cities out
into the country along these highways.
Instead of living in a Urge house on a
piece of gr und lot) feet square, whsre
the ground alone is worth a lare farm at
ruling prices a few mile9 from the city.tte
same peopla wiil buy many times the
same arcouct of land two or three miles
out in the country, on one of the fine
highways lending out from the city, and
place the fia! house on it. There they
will live with greater freedom and all the
advantages "cf the city. The roadside
all the way tlocg the course to town
for mile3 w.ll be filled with dwellings,
and theroals will practically become
avenues of a suburban character. The
price of land will be enhanced and the
taxable valuo of the country will be
largely increased without any great
lessening of that of the city. Cities will
then cease to grow at the expense of the
country surrounding ttem, as is now the
case, and too -.rue here in our counties.
Country axl city alike will share the
advantages o:" the improvement, and
population will largely increase as the
consequence of this improvement.
There is a good dcil of cogent reason
ing in what Col. Ppe sats: He has
made a longer and deeper and more de
termined stut y of the economic and
practical sides of the highway question
than any oth'-r man in the country.

What are Krause's Headache Capsules?
To be brief will tell you they are unlike
anything prepared in America. A few
years since an acquaintance who for years
had been a headache sufferer, until his
system had been ruined, was advised to
go to the Carlsbad Springs, Germany, to
try the t fleets of the water. While the
waters were apparently a benefit, still
they were not a cure. While at the tprirg
he beard a great deal about the court
ptiy-ici in, ir. Ki.iu e. wi tteiii
bectme famous tho world over owing to
the Mackenzie controversy during and
after the last illness of emperor William.
lie consulted Krmse in regard to his
heactiche, ar.d to quote the doctors words:
"Here is a prescription which if taken
a? I direct, will prevent or stop any kiqd
of headache, no matter what the cause.
You will find the frequency of the at
tacks will diminish and by taking the
capsules when you feel the approach of a
headiiche you will never have another,''
The patient was prRC'icilly cured and
with is permission I prepare, and sell
what I have si en tit, to call Krause's
Headache Capsules to headache victim.
