GIRL ART STUDENTS IN PARIS.
Some Facts About Their Experiences and
"The average girl art student in
Paris lives about as quiet a life as the
American college girl," says Maude
Andrews in the Woman's Home Com
paulon, writing from her own experi
ence of "The American Girl Artist in
Paris." "The tuition at the schools
ranges in price from seven to fourteen
dollars a month, but the price of an
artist's materials cannot be estimated,
for these -are the items that make
the study of art appallingly expensive.
If an artist needs certain paints, she
cannot stop to consider if others
wouldn't do as well, or If she couldn't
get on with less, as she considers the
purchase of remnants at a bargain
counter. The paint must be had at any
cost, and that is why girl artists often
look as hungry and seedy as the Mar
chioness when first discovered by Dick
Swiveller. It is safe to say that no
girl ought to come to Paris to study
art unless she has an assured allow
ance of fifty dollars a month, and this
amount will just about enable her to
meet the expenses of daily living, tui
tion and materials. A great deal has
been said about the folly of American
girls coming to Paris on limited means,
but the impracticability of suci a ven
ture lies not so much in this drawback
as in the pose and lack of practical
;ense in many of the art students them
selves. The one great pose in art is
the scorn of pot-boling. Most young
artists, for instance, consider it to
be a degradation of their art to turn
their talents toward illustration,
whereas it is one of the most remuner
ative things an artist can do. It may
be said very truly that no poor girl
should come to Paris to study art un
less she is willing to turn her ability
in the direction of pot-boiling now and
then, in order to supplement her allow
ance. There are so many needs for
money in Paris. It is a veritable Circe
Df cities that changes its lovers not into
swine, but into the most enchanting
butterflies, if there is only a little ex
tra money to be had for dress. A girl
who is very poor and cannot make a
little pin-money often gets rather hope
less and depressed, for there is noth
ing so forlorn in Paris as shabby at
Medals For Women.
Few women have received high
awards for exhibits in the fine arts
at the Paris Exposition. Out of more
than one hundred and twenty gold
medals accorded to French and for
eign painters in oil and water color
only four have gone to women. Miss
Cecilia Beaux, of this country, is one
of these. Miss Beaux has shown open
air studies at the Societe Nationale des
Beaux Arts for the last three or four
years. The other women who received
gold medals are Mine. Virginie De

More jewelry than ever is being
worn. Perhaps the outlines of the
modern French bijouterie are rather
barbaric in tendency, but how deli
cately fine and raisonne is the work
manship, which softens the freedom
of the original conception and per
fects each detail with minutest skill!
To realize this one must have close
ly examined the jewelry exhibits at
the Paris Exposition. The lead of the
great French jeweler, Lalique-that
most modest artist, who has revolu
tionized all modes in jewelry for the
moment - has -been freely followed,
perhaps too freely, for there has
sprung up a series of imitators, who
are far from achieving the result that
their originator has realized. But the
result is that gold and silver in many
shades and enamel of most entrancing
hues have taken the place to a great
extent of the precious stone, especial
ly in ornaments for day wt~r.
Unchanging Fashions Ia Calna.
Chinese fashions seldom change, and
a woman of the Celestial Empire
dresses to-day as her great-grandmoth

piece of silk tied around the waist and
overlapping behind. Then come the

her a deathlike appear- ce. While
it is still soft she remove's sie paste
from her eyes and lips with a wet
sponge, and, moistening her finger,
draws it three times around h~r throat,
leaing three red marks. She always
carries about with her a stiff, flat fan
and a powder box with a litle mir
ror in the lid, by which she can see
to touch periodically her face with
the powder puff.
In the Work Room.
The following hints will be useful
in the work room: Faded silks can
be restored by being sponged with
weak ammonia water and afterward
rubbed with a soft cloth. Old .black
silks are improved by a sponge bath
of spirit and water, and cloth dresses
by being brushed with blue water. Af
ter the gown has been thoroughly well

a clothes brush into blue water and
brush the dress quickly. To removc

The Use of Ashes.
Twenty barrels of unleached wood
ashes would usually weigh about 2400
pounds. This amount would supply
as much potash as would be furnished
by from 250 to 300 pounds mliriate of
potash. Double this cuantity of ashes
might be used if the soil were quite
seriously in need of lime, although
such an amount would furnish more
potash than would be required imme
diately. Better results would be se
cured by harrowing In the ashes than
by plowing them under.-Professor H.
J. Wheeler, of Rhode Island.
Geese Are Clean Birds.
In an Interview Mr. Renager, the
Kentucky geese raiser, gave the fol
lowing interesfing facts regarding
geese and their habits:
"A goose is the cleanest fowl alive.
I have been in the poultry business
since 1871, have handled all kinds of
domestic fowl, and have studied their
habits closely. They are constantly
at work keeping their feathers clean,
and if furnished with plenty of water
they are never seen t when fit
for dress parade. -
"They are equally as careful regard
ing their food. On one occasion we
bought a lot of corn which had grown
musty, and the geese would not eat
the dough made from It. Nor will
they eat dough after It has soured.
On this account we have to be very
careful to mix up no more dough than
the geese will eat In a day.
'"Another thing peculiar about geese
Is that they eat a great deal more some
days than they do on others. For In
stance, It frequently requires thirty or
forty buckets of dough a day to a
given pen of geese. Then for a few
days they will probably eat not more
than a dozen buckets." -Southern

Thinning Fruit to Kill Insecl.
In thinning out the fruit in the or
chard during summer growth the fo
liage and fruit left on the trees are
not only benefited, but the general
health of the trees also. In my owil
experience I have found that this
practice when judiciously followed
has a distinct benefit upon the health
of the trees, and hence enables themL
to withstand the ravages from insects.
This is a point that has not been em
phasized much, but if you go into any
orchard where thinning out is prac
ticed you will find that insects are
less destructive than in another where
the let-alone method is adopted. The
insects are destroyed by this process
in two ways. When you make trees
grow vigorously and thriftily you
make them less susceptible to disease.
Thus the yellows will rarely attack a
peach tree in good condition, nor the
blight and rot appear on apple and
cherry trees that have an iron-like con
stitution. One way recommended for
combating fruit tree diseases is to fer
tilize and cultivate the trees so they
will be strong and healthy. The more
important effect that thinning out
fruits has upon the tree diseases and
insects is In the destruction of the
larvae of the Insects in the wormy
and immature fruit. Now the larvae
of the codling moth produces the
wormy fruit on apple trees, and if
these deformed apples are pulled off
in the thinning out process scores of
would-be codling moths will be killed.
The plum curculio produces the wormy
plums and cherries, and by destroying
this immature fruit we kill them.
There are many other injurious worms
and insects that are killed in this im
mature fruit, and thus the season's
crop of destructive Insects is limited
by just that number. Usually this in
mature fruit never amounts to much,
but eventually drops on the ground
and dries up. The insects and worms
then emerge forth and breed a new
In thinning out the fruit from any
trees all the undersized, worm-eaten,
deformed and unshapely, fruits should
first be selected when very young.
They should all be destroyed by fire
or some other way so that the larvae
of the insects will not escape. Throw
ing them away or burying them mere
ly gives the insects another chanee to
grow and matute. It Is only after the
poor fruit has been destrofed that the
thinning process should be extended
to the better class. Usually it is be:
ter to thin only a little at a time, for
sometimes the fruit with worms in
them do not show any defect until
quite large. If the thinning out is all
done one does not feel like pulling oft
more fruit toward the end. By lear

There has been a great deal naid
and written on the subject of self
hiers, and a great deal of experiment
ing, too, but so far we have not
reached any degree of perfection. In
an apiary of sixty hives or more it
frequently happens that several
swarms issue simultaneously, and, of
course, always cluster together in one
huge mass. If the queens are at large
with the bees, the cluster will neces
sarily be hived sS one swarm, and the
queens will kill each other until only
one survives. To prevent this loss, I
practice in my home apiary a method
