In other months we forget
the harsh-winds of Spring.
But they have their use, as
some say, to blow out the
bad air accumulated after
Winter storms and Spring
thaws. There is far more
important accumulation of
badness in the veins and ar

needs Hood's Sarsaparilla.
This great Spring Medicine clarifies
the blood as nothing else can. It cures
scrofula, kidney disease, liver troubles,

it gives perfect health, strength and ap

A CLEVER PROFESS10NAL WOMAN.
MiS Devn Is a Buecesful tandscip6 Ah
sistant to a Ne* York Airchitect.
Yarjor.y DeaA is the iomantid name
of a ivery piAtical Young woman, per
haps the only feminine landscape as
sistant to an architect in this country.
Miss Dean, or X. Dean, is a plump
little woman, still under thirty, and
aevoted to her work.
"How did you chance upon your
profession?" she was asked,
"There was no chance about it,"
she reoliled. "I knew I should have
to earn my living when I left school,
so I endeavored to lay the foundation
for a profession by. my studies in the
public schools-. Now I don't want
you to think that all of this fore
thought originated with!me' as a
girl, for it did not. I was lucky in
having a very practical mother, who
treated all of her children alike, boys
and girls. She would ask us, even as
li:tle tots, what we expected to do to
earn our own living when we grew up.
Then as we grew up, while at school,
she would give us advice.
"Her advice to me," Miss Dean
continued, "was to look for some
other profession besides typewriting,
bookkeeping and teaching. I have no
special ta'nt, so. when I showed a
fondness for architecture she encour
aged me and suggested that even if I
never sueceeded in becoming an arch
iteef, I might be an architect's assis
tant in some capacity.
"So, you see, it was my mother
who bent the twig. After I had left
school I came to New York and of
fered my services to a well known
architect. He could not employ me,
but gave me some valuable advice.
'Go to Europe,' he said, 'if possible,
and spend about at least thr-e months
studying architecture. Not the build
ings so much -for every architect has
studied that branch-but their set
tings. Study ithe grounds.*Every
year the number of wealthy Ameri
cans who wish to build handsome
homes is increasing. In the majority
of cases they take,a fancy to a certain
style of architecture and want it built
on some particular spot, without the
least regard for the suitability. Now,
what you want to learn is how to
build the grounds up to suit the
house. Let the architect build the
house and you build the grounds.
"I acted on the suggestion. I bor
rowed the money and took a wheeling
tour through the British Isles and
several countries in Europe with a
slassmate, who did not have to earn
her living and was willing to*go any
route that was to my advantage.
"On my return I became the assis
t-At of my adviser and to-day am
earning a comfortable living with a
little money aside for a rainy day. I
am the only woman in America filling
such a position, so far as I know, and
I am quite sure the field is large
enough for many more.
"Do I superintend the carrying out
my plans? Only so far as to see that
they produce the desired effect. I
know almost nothing about the habits
and requirements of trees and plants.
That is the business of the gardeners
who carry out my plaus, and I only
see that they do their work in such a
manner as to harmonize with the
grounds. I did not think it is worth
my while to study landscape garden
ing because I would not have time to
see to the planting and culivating. I
am fully occupied as it now stands,
and, as I said before, my profession
is by no means overcrowded. I am
out of doors and away from the city
the greater part of the time, but my
workis healthful, pays excellently and
I am very fond of it."-Atlanta Consti
Proper Care of Shoes.
Although small feet have gone out
of fashion it is not to be supposed
that feet are not as much thought of
as formerly, or their proper equip.
ment a matter of as much considera
tion. As a matter of fact, shoes and
their proper care are of much greater
moment with fashionable people than
ever before, and women's footgear at
the present time forms one of the most
important parts of their attire. Alady's
maid who does not understand the
proper care of her mistress's shoes is
not up to date.
By proper care it; does not mean
simply that they arc to be cleaned if
muddy and a patent dressing put on
when they become tihabby. A well
made shoe should not resort to the 1at
ter aid until it is in extremis. A shoe
should be cared for and polished with
out varnish for a long while before
such sticky aids are necessary. With
patent leather, for instance, people
who are particular about their shoes
use a certain fkind of cream. If this
is put on sparingly and afterward well
polished with a bit of soft flannel ras
it gives a soft lustre that is much more
refined-looking than the thick, shiny
varnish which in the end destroys the
jeather, instead of preserving it. Fo2
kid or morocco a perfectly harmless
dressing, and one that will not weai
off for a long while, is common jei
black ink. The ink should be put on,
allowed to get dry and then rubbed
with a dry cloth to get off all the su
perfluous ink, and then, taking the
white of an egg which has been beater
until it is thin but not frothy,it shoulh
be rubbed over the shoe with the fin
To clean and treat any boot or sho<
properly it should be put on a "tree'
made to fit it. This will entirely pre
vent those ugly lir es and wrinkles
which disfigure so many shoes below
the instep. Shoes that are alreada
wrinkled may be put ou "trees,'
dampened (with a sponge and the
wrinkles smoothed out with an ivorl
or bone knife or paper-cutter.
Another good plan, when the shoe
is stiff with repeated varnishings anl
wettings, is to put it on the "tree'
and thoroughly scrub it with an oli
nailbrush, and afterward rub it sof'
with glycerine before applying th<

Black taffeta is much favored, but
fancy silks hold the vantage ground,
and stripes which were well received
during the winter months have ex
tended their popularity with spring
Chine silks have been revived and a
subdued appearance is given the
colors ly a misty effect, which is in
high favor in New York and Paris.
Bordered silks, plain and figured,
are now being shown in the leading
9tores, and are being chosen for cos
tumes by the leading Paris dressmak
ers, the borders being artistically em
ployed for ornamentation.
Printed grenadines and printed
mousseline de soie are fashions, es
pecial favorites for evening and for
summer wear, and will be made up
over colored foundations. The high
art designs represent floral effects
portrayed in colors of natural flowers.
Such materials will be in favor for
waists and for fall costumes.
Hairline stripes are the dominant
desians in wool and in worsted dress
goods, and are especially desirable for
tailor-made suits. Broadcloths, Vene
tians and cheviots, particularly in
black, will also be freely used.. As
the tailor-made gown is to lose none
of its popularity, abundant provision
has been made for a collection of neat
effects in worsted dress goods suitable
for such costumes.
Wash goods are to gain additional
recognition, so say the potentates of
fashion. While all wash goods will
be employed for summer garments,
heavy materials, plaiD and printed,
will bold first place. Plain and fancy
piques, ginghams, madras cloths and
fancy ginghams of silk and cotton are
to be the leading fabrics.-American
rancy Work For Girls.
Since the wearing of fringes has
come in again many of the girla have
taken to making them themselves, as
a handsome, well made fringe is a
very expensive thing to buy. Strands
of pretty beads and spangles may be
had for very moderate prices, and
fringe making is a nice sort of fancy
work for any girl to try. One New
York girl is making herself a beauti
fu -inge for trimming the bodice and
down the front seams of the skirt of a
black satin evening gown. On a nar-,
row silver card which she bought i
five cents a yard, she is sewing strands
of small beads, of alternate cut steel
and black jet; the fringe when pon
pleted will be about five inches ong,
and on the end of each strand she has
sewed a larger bead as a fiuish..
Some one else was heard, of the
other day as making a ribbon fringe,
which was exceedingly effective, and
less work than one made of beads. It
was of narrow black taffeta ribbon
about half an inch wide. A band of
the ribbon was taken for a foundation,
and on this were folded over in a point
at the top and sewed pieces of ribbon
from four to five inches in length. At
the end of each piece was a large jet
bead. Any colored ribbon could be
used in making this fringe, and tiie
ends finished off with beads, spangles
or sequins. A very pretty idea is to
make the fringe of the different shades
of one color. For instance, all the
shades of green, from dark to light,
with opal beads at the end.-Harper's
'OM1des Lowi,v Ink-pot.
One of "Quida's" peculiarities is
that she cannot write at a table, but
invariably writes with a pad on her
knee and an ink-pot on the carpet. In
this way she will sit ior hours at a
time. It is incidentally related that
on occasions she has written as much
as 20,000 words at a single sitting,
but this is a statement that surpasses
belief, however prodigious her powers
of work. Authors have been known
to dictate 12,000 words at a sitting,
but to write 20,000 words, or twelve
full columns at a stretch, is a test of
physical endurance to which even so
prolific and indefatigable a writer as
"Onida" would hardly care to submit
