HOW TO HAVE PRETTY HANDS.
A Modern "Beauty Bath" and Due Used
Poets have sung of and painters Im?
mortalized beautiful bands long ere ot*r
day, And ro obtain which women all over
the world are constantly striving.
The first essential is [to know how to
keep them in condition. We should be
obliged to go to the laboratory of the Bur?
geon to learn how far short oOr best
efforts are to the attainment of true by
genie clenalinesn. Still, for everyday
purposes, and for beauty-getting, we
have acquired by ex per'men ting the fol?
lowing method toward certain success:
Make a very bliong lather cf pure soap
fi-io.-?t difficult of all things to get), Still,
taking old timey Castile one will not gu
far adrift. Cut little bits of it. up, pour?
ing very hot. water upon it to release the
oil therefrom: to this lather add a small
quantity of silver sand, if the hands are
much soiled. Immerse the hands for at
least live minutes i by the clock): then,
taking a nail brush, scrub the uails
gently; after which plunge the hands
into a basin of lukewarm water, into
which a few (say 15) drops of benzoin
have been added. Rinse very thoroughly,
because soap water of any sort should
never be allowed to .emain upon the
skin: then dry with equal en re, tha* there
be no danger of chapping upon exposure
to thp air.
While the nails are still in good condi
iion for treatment push (he cuticle gen?
tly down with an orange wood .<t ck, lift?
ing it as gently first around the base.
This is the proner bath for cleansing
these-to-he-bcautlful members of our
body. The next point is to "plump" an
o'er lean hand. No matter how white,
or how well kept '-ur hands n ay he, if
they are like talons they art I ho very an?
tithesis of beautiful.
The "skinniest" band extant may be
made plump by I he Unman oil bath,which
is a niahtly immersion of the hands in
pure olive oil. used as hot ns possible:
i lien apply more olivo oil or lanoline,
rubbing it in as lontt as the pores will lap
it up (they are always hungry upon thin
people). After the rubbing process don
kid gloves, which have been split several
times in the palm, to Afford ventila?
tion. This oiled hand bath was u??d in
Rome centuries age, and will do its work
THE SURPRISE OF ALL.
Mr. James Jones, of tho drug firm of
Jones ?- Son. Cowden, 111., in speaking
of Dr. King's New Discovery, says that
last winter his wife was attacked with la
grippe. a"d her case grew s<. serious that
physicians at Cowden and Pana could do
nothing for her. It seemed to develop
into hasty consumption. Having Dr.
King's New Discovery in store, and sell?
ing has of it. he took a bottle Lome, and
to the surprise of all she began to get
better from first dose, and half dozen
dollar bottles cured her sonod and well.
Dr. King's New Discovery for consump?
tion, coughs and colda Is guaranteed to do
this good work. Try it. Free trial
bottles at Masslo'a Pharmacy.

A. s. A BELL COMPANY,
Fulstaff once declared that ho was "a?
melancholy as a glb cat"?that is to say,
an old cat.
The cat Is supposed to havo originated
in Persia, and some havo assigned "pers"
as the origin of "puss."
In Lorraine, if parents wish to discour?
age the addresses of a young man to their
daughter, they scud him a kitten. But
sometimes lovo laughs at kittens as well
Shylook lived at a time when there was
a very strong prejudico against pussy, yet
ho seems not to have been tinged with tho
superstition of tho period, for ho speaks of
her ns the "harmless, necessary cat."
According to Australian mythology,
tho moon was formerly a cat, which foil
in lovo with a man's wife, was discov?
ered and beaten by the injured husband
and ran away and has been wandering
It is a popular but wholly erroneous no?
tion that cats suck tho breath of children,
tboreby causing their destruction. As lato
as l~yi a coroner's jury in England found
that a baby 18 months old came to its
death from this cause.
Many thousand cats wcro burned to
death in the great flro in London in 1000.
Pepys, writing in Ids diary of that terrible
event, says, "I also did see a poor cat tak?
en out of a hole in a chimney joining on to
tho exchange with the hair all burned oil"
the body and yet alive."
It portends great misfortune if tho cat
leaps over a corpse, and in some countries
the cats are locked up while tho body re?
mains in the house. It is thought this su?
perstition gnvo riso to the custom of sit?
ting tip with tho dead. In somo parts of
England, however, it is believed that a cat
will not remain in a house where there is
