TBv Frederick H. Hoot in Good Housekeep
ing To "putter," which is essentially
the derivative from "potter," is a
word hard to define and easy to
understand. It means to busy one
self about trifles and to work to lit
tle purpose. It means a vast expen
diture of nervous euerpy on
matters that niipht be lightly dis
missed or relegated to others, and
the consequent failure to pain
"power through repose" or culture
through the elevation and concen
tration of the life. And one of the
saddest sights in the world is to see
woman occupied strenuously with
innumerable and self imposed
I do not, of course, refer ti the

duties inseparable from household
main gement, tlie rearing and train
ing of children, the economic of
the commissariat and the like.
Women of capacity discharge such
duties with promptitude and
thoroughness and still find leisure
for church and social obligations,
for healthful recreation. I mean
rather by "puttering" the over
emphasis which is put upon trifles
of little or no importance, trifles
that may as well bo left to servants,
the exaggeration of household de
tails, the gradual contraction of a
-woman's life to such pettiness of
environment as will ultimately
dwarf the higher powers and
The habit of "puttering" is the foe
of all classes of women who fall by
insensible degrees into the snare of
"much troubling about many
things ' of no vital importance what

possess excellent qualities of mind
and heart, but they are in danger of
being swallowed up in the sea of the

breakfast forecasting muddy coffee.
She goes to bed at night anxiously
debating whether the raspberry jam
was stored away on the second or
third shelf of the pantry. And from
the time of getting up to the time
for sleep her mind is drawn, as by
a potent magnet, to tritles that do
not materially nITrct the ensemble

is worry as to what shall be done
with an accumulating mass of daily
papers which the ragman will jump

The "puttering" woman is never

The New 111 In.
The new belts are either one inch
or two full inches wide. Some are
made of smooth leather, with plain
metallic tongue buckles; others are
of alligator, snake or lizard skin,
with square or oval buckles. Some
belts are made of heavy prosgrain
ribbon over stiffened lining, and
these have fancy buckles, oval or
square, in gold with steel and cop
per trimmings. The chatelaiu is
and will be fashionable. It is made
of real or imitation silver, and has
all sorts of pretty little things dang
ling from the fastening.
Color In Millinery.
The colors on the new hats and
bonnets prow brighter and more
glaring every day it seems. Home of
the straws are as preen as any grass
t hat ever grew, or as red as poppies
from the Orient. Yellow and red
tulips grow from the tops of them in
the greatest profusion, leaves and
all. Some of them are topped with
immense masses of crimson ros
es, and some have enormous bows of
purple and preen tulle. In fact, no
color is too bright or bunch too big
for a hat. Uows are made of coarse
rush like straw braids. Shapes are
any and all kinds. Many ladles af
fect the great picture hats, with
masses of ostrich plumes. Indeed,
plumes have a place in the sum
mer's millinery not often accorded.
There are hats that look as if they
have come down from Noah's ark,
so quaint and old-fashioned they
are. Everything that ' is becoming
is fashionable now, if only the trim
ming is made to stand up high and
Blouses Remain Popular.
A reliable fashion exchange says:
The eiforts have been tremendous
to pet rid of the blouse, but it would
not go. There is somewhere in this
matter a psychology that the reader
may be pleased to work out. The
blouse makes u part of all the new
gowns. It fits with most dressmak
ers down close to the figure behind
and is full and bouffant in front, and
to make the waist long may fall
down through the middle entirely
over the belt. It is made with a
yoke, or it is made double-breasted,
or it is open down the front over a
pi'.et, the latter in combination with
a linen flange collar, and a tie being
the choice of the moment with wo
men that are chic ; it is trimmed up
and down and it h trimmed across,
according to the figure or to the de
sign of the skirt; it may have over it
a bolero, and these are shorter than
they were and are sometimes no
more than yokes, or it may have
flgaro, and this only a bolero made
long so as to go with a narrow belt,
to which there is a very general re
turn. It is carried out in burlap, it
is carried out in lace; it is worn at
morning, noon and night, and on
the subject of bodices this is the
first and last and all there is to be

She didn't wash the dishes, and she

A Common-Sense Reality List.
An authority on physical training
for women gives the following direc
tions for securing the best results,
which naturally must be modified
by individual characteristics and
circumstances: "Meep nine bours
out of the twenty-four, bathe in cold
water, exercise five minutes daily
with light dumb-bells, drink a cup
of hot liquid before breakfast, spend
half an hour every day in out-door
! exercise, make the best of bad bar
gains and always keep your temper.
The Proper Care of the) Children.
An infant should be given no food
containing starch until it cuts its
teeth. Starchy foods include bis
cuits, corn flour, tapioca, sapo, rice,
potato, etc. An infant cannot digest
any of these until its teeth are cut.
Violent noises and rough shak
ings or tossings are hurtful to a baby,
and should be avoided as mucti as
Infants should never be put into a
sitting posture until they are at
least three mouths old, when they
will probably sit up of their own
accord. They should be carried flat
in the nurse's arms, as, if the little
back is at all curver , it may lead to
curvature of the spine or chest dis
ease. Until children are six or seven
years old they should have twelve
hours' sleep every night. In
addition to this a nap for two hours,
either in the morning or afternoon
especially in hot weather will do a
great deal toward keeping them
bright and well. Home Life.
How to Tell Fresh Ei.
To the experienced eye, the
roughish, or granulated surface of
the perfectly fresh egg distinguishes
it at once from the shiny or polished
surface of the egg that has been un
der the hen a day or two. We can
pick out every fresh epg among a
nestful of those that have been sat
on for two days, even in the dark.
The secret is very simple. Just
scratch over the surface with the
finger nail; if it grates, the egg is
fresh, but if the nail slides smoothly
the epg is old. A little practice
makes this a sure test.
One of the least-known though
also one of the simplest and most
effective of cements for this purpose
is white oil color, such as is usually
sold in tubes, from which it is
squeezed out in the desired quantity.
Broken tilings should always be
mended as soon as possible after the
accident, but of course there are
occasions when this is not feasible.
In such a case, without any pre
vious preparations of any kind,
merely paint the broken parts with
the oil, press them into position, tie
them in position or otherwise secure
them, if possible, and the operation
is complete. The only precaution
to observe to insure perfect success
is to put the mended article away to
dry thoroughly for six weeks. After
that period, however, neither heat
nor cold nor moisture should anect
the cement. If after complete dry
ing any color remains, having
possibly oozed out, it must be care
fully scraped off with a knife before
the article is taken into use again
and after it has dried.
To Make I.lnen White.
To make linen beautifully white
use refined borax in the water in
stead of soda or washing powder.
A large handful of powdered borax
to ten gallons of boiling water is a
proportion, then you will save one
half in soap by this method. Borax
being a natural salt, does not injure
in the slightest degree the texture
of linen and will soften the hardest
Delicious Brown Fricasseed Chicken.
Brown fricasseeing is a very tasty
way of serving a fowl. Binge, draw
and disjoint; put into a good-sized
saucepan two tablespoonfuls of but
ter; when hot drop in the pieces of
chicken; allow them to brown
gradually, taking great care the but
ter does not burn. As soon as the
pieces are browned draw them to
one side of the saucepan, and add to
the fat two tablespoonfuls of flour;
mix and add one pint of stock or
water. Stir constantly until it be
gins to boil, moving the chicken
around in the sauce. Add a slice of
onion, a bay leaf, a tablespoonful of
chopped carrot, a teaspoonful of alt
and a quarter of a teaspoonful of
pepper. Cover the saucepan, push
it to the back part of the stove,
where the chicken may simmer
slowly for an hour. When done,
dish the rough pieces in the centre,
crossing the letrs on the front of the
platter; place the wings and the
dark meat at the sides; the back
and breast on top. Dish your chick
en each time in the same manner,
so that the carver may know exact
ly where he will find the dark and
the Iignt meat. Take the sauce
from the Are, add to it the yolk of
one egg, beaten with two table
spoonfuls of cream; strain this over
the chicken. Garnish the dish with
crescents of tried bread, dust over a
little finely-chopped parsley, and
send to the table. Mrs. 8. T. Korer

A Pathetic Incident.
William Wilkerson, who was for
many years jailer of Fayette county,
and who was noted for his fidelity
to truth, related the following pa
thetic incident of heroism which he
witnessed shortly after the battle of
Richmond, ivy., 111 18(52, says the
'A son of my friend, Cassias 31.
Clay, was killed in the fight at
Richmond, and it was my
duty to visit the battlefield and
identify the body and take it to bis
father's home. While riding slowly
over the scene of the battle I heard
groans, which I was sure came from
a corn field near at hand. Looking
down the corn rows, I soon discov
ered two wounded soldiers, lying
about forty yards apart. One was a
Federal and the other a Confeder
ate. A cannon ball had broken and
terribly mangled both of the Con
federate's legs, while the Federal
was shot through the body and
' 'I am dying for water, I heard
the Federal say just as I discovered
them. His words sounded as if tbey
came from a parched mouth.
" '1 have some water in my can
teen. You are welcome to drink if
you'll come here,' said the Confed
erate, who had feebly raised his
head from the ground to look at his
late enemy when he heard his pit
iful cry tor water.
"'1 couldn't move to save my
life," the Federal groaned, as he
dropped his head to the pround,
while his wnole body quivered witn
"Then I beheld an act of heroism
which held me spell-bound until it
was too late for me to give the
assistance I should have rendered.
The Confederate lifted his head
again and took another look at his
wounded foe, and I saw an expres
sion of tender pity come over his
pain-distorted face as he said:
" 'Hold out a little longer, Yank,
and 1 11 try to come to you.' ;
"Then the brave fellow, by dig
ging his fingers into the ground and
holding on to the cornstalks, pain
fully dragged himself to the Feder
al s side, the blood from his man
gled lg3 making a trail the entire
distance. The tears ran down my
cheeks like rain, out of sympathy
for him, and I groaned every time
he moved, but I was lost to every
thintr except the fellow's heroism,
and did not think once of helping
"When the painful Journey was
finished he offered his canteen to
the Federal, wno took it and drank
easrerlv, the water seeminir to sizzle
as it passed down li is parched
throat. Then, with a deep sigh of
relief, he reached out to the Con
federate, and it was plain to see, as
they clasped hands and looked in
to each other's eyes, that whatever
of hate may have rankled once in
the hearts of these men, had now
eriven place to mutual sympathy
and love. Even while I watched
them I saw the Confederate's body
quiver as if in a spasm of pain, and
when his head dropped to the
ground I knew that hero had crossed
the dark liver. The federal kissed
the dead hero's hand repeatedly and
cried like a child until I had him
removed to the hospital, where he,
too, died the next day.
