Tho newest fad among tho leaders
of fashion in the metropolis is solo
dancing?not skirt dancing, but, as Tho
Puritau explains, n revival of tho benuti ?
ful old dances of past centuries. Tho
minuet, tho gavotte, tho surabaudo, the
chacouuc, the gnilhirdc and the pavane
have been practiced assiduously by
many society women, each choosing (he
dunce most in accord with her own
style of loveliness. To Mrs. Cooper
Hewitt credit lias been given for the
introduction of this new amusement.
"Dancing is music made visible" was
said, undoubtedly, of tho rhythmic
movements of these old time dances,
which consisted of graceful, bending,
swaying courtesies and slow, gliding
Stops. It could hardly bo applied to the
modern waltz or two step.
A Beauty Hint.
An English authority is quoted as
advising for tho cure of blackheads tho
eating of water cress, lettuce, cucumbers
and boiled onions. In addition to this
diet, coconnut oil must bo rubbed into
(bo pores of tho skin at night, wiping
it off in the morning. Soon, it is claim?
ed, tho blackheads will soften so that
thoy may come out. Once out, tho
next step is to close the pores of the
t-kin, and this, according to the authori?
ty (united, can be done by rubbing tho
faco daily with a preparation consisting
of ten parts of alcohol to ouo part of
tincture of benzoin.

Fresh air is a great

A healthy woman

She can avoid the

Taken under medical direction, in con?
nection with the right medicine, they
will help effect a cure. No women who
suffers at all from so-called '' female weak?
ness" should attempt athletics of any
sort. She should first put herself into
possession of strong and hearty health by
taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Presentation.
After she is thoroughly well, exercise and
diversion will help to keep her well. The
cure should come first. Dr. Pierce's Fa?
vorite Prescription is designed and rec?
ommended for only the one thing. It
acts directly upon one set of organs. No
matter what is the matter with them, it
will cure it. It will not cure anything
else. It is a wholesome tonic, an invig?
orating nervine, or nerve-food as well as
a healing medicine, and thousands of
perfectly well women have found that by
taking it regularly during the period of
pregnancy, the danger and pain of par?
turition were much lessened, and in
many cases, almost entirely obviated.

"My boy shall never bo a doctor,"
s:ii<l Pillster, the physician, to Ilia
friend, tho preacher. "Whou I was n
boy, 1 thonglit mcdiciuo was just tho
right profession for a man to follow. I
figured out that it would return reason?
able profits, and, furthermore, it was a
uoble ( ailing. I could do good to my
fellow man. Well. I'm far from rich,
and while I still hold much the sumo
viows about being able tu do good to
humanity I have found out that hu?
manity doesn't half appreciifto it. The
other night I rode ten miles through a
heavy rain to attend a sick man. When
I got there, ho took half an hour berat?
ing mo bocanso 1 had not arrived an
hour before. It goes that way from year
to year Hard work, moderate returns
and no appreciation. "
"Oh, Pillster,." put in Bookman, tho
prenchor, "you may bo right, but what?
ever you d<>, don't encourage your boy
to be a minister. If ho feels called, let
him follow his way, but never encour?
age him. I used to think theology was
the only thing to study. 1 dreamed over
it as n boy and worked like n slave as n
young mau. I worked my way through
college. Now I've, bad a good charge,
as charges go, for ten years, and if I
was not impelled by a seuso of duty I
would throw up tho spongo. It's work
and hustle day after day, and small
thanks. Tho minute- you talk to your
parishioner's wifo the gossips wag
their tongues. If you preach gospel, they
say they don't want that. If you give
them literature and philosophy, they say
give us the gospel. It's a dog's life.
Pillster, whatever you do, don't let
your boy get any false notions about be?
ing a minister."
But Willie solved the problem by an?
nouncing after both doctor and preach-,
