sents the usual excellent combina
tion of Fashions and Literature
that have so long distinguished this
publication. The most up-to-date
dress in Seasonable Dress, the Lat
est Fabrics and their elaboration
are accurately and thoroughly illus
trated and described, an article on
Graduation Costumes, which con
tains many valuable suggestions,
being particularly timely. Promi
ment among the various literary
features is the paper by Mrs. Alice
Meynell in the series on Children
and Their Ways, treating in her
delightful style of their delicate but
peculiar sense of hnmor. The Re
turn of the Prodigal, by Jeanie
Drake, is a touching, genuinely,
Southern sketch of the strange
home coming of a wandering min
strel. Three Radcliflc Stories, en
tertaingly told by Sarah Cleghorn,
reveal the secret of the strength of
college sentiment. Family Re
pression, the fifth in the eminently
practical series of articles on Do
mestic Subjects, by Emma Church
man Hewitt, deals with the subject
of parental discipline. Three Fas
cinating Entertainments accurately
describes a group of instructive lit
erary pastimes. Of especial do
mestic interest are the papers Hints
for Home Nurses, by Elizabeth
R. Scovil, and the Architecture of
tho Home, by Alice M. Birney.?
Dr. Grace Peckman Peckham Mur

11 often happens that the doctor is out
of town when most needed. The two
year old daughter ol J. Y. Sohenck, of
Caddo, Ind. Ter., was threatened with
croup, he writes. "My wife insisted
that I go for the doctor at once : but as
he was out of town, I purchased a bottle
of Chamberlain's Coutth Remedy which
relieved the child immediately." A
bottle of that remedy in the bouse will
often save the expense of a doctor's bill,
besides the anxiety always occasioned
by serious sickness. When it is uiven
as BOOH ns the croupy cough appears, it
will prevent the attack. Thousands of
mothers always keep it in their homes
