TRUST THE CHILDREN.
Trust the children. Never doubt them,
Build a wall of love about them ;
After sowing seeds of duty,
Trust them for. the (lowers of beauty.
Trust the children. Don't suspect them;
Let your confidence direct them,
At the hearth or In the wildwnod
Meet them on the plane of childhood.
Trust the little ones. Remember
May is not like chill Decembor.
Let no words of race or madness
'heck their happy notes of gladness.
Trust the little ones,
You guide them J
And, above all, ne'e
Should they trip, or should they blun
Lost you snap love's cords asunder.
Trust the children. Let them treasure
Mother's faith in boundless measure,
Father's love, in them confiding;
Then no secrets they'll be hiding.
Trust the children just as He did
Who for "such" once sweetly pleaded.
Trust, and guide, but never doubt them
Build a wall of love ahout them.

The I-Hily In Alivayn a Lady.
A lady may stand behind the
counter, be mistress in her own
home, or busy all day at a desk, but
no matter what her position in life
is, she never swerves, and uncon
sciously she always impresses those
who are around her with the fact of
her gentleness and her sirtlplicity.
The lady gains her strength" not
from riches, not from her higth posi
tion, not from great learning, but
from good common-sense. Any one
of us may learn this if we will take
a good model and copy it. No lady
is free-and-easy in her manners.
She does not, however, go to the
other extreme and become stilted,
but she tends rather to quietness
and to a (-lip-lit reserve, since, when
she takes a friend, she proposes to
keep her. Bhe does . not become
intimate with you after twenty-four
hours' acquaintance, put you in the
place of a confidante in forty-eight
hour?, and in a week's time tire of
you. The lady knows you first
merely as an acquaintance, and
then, if she find you interesting, or
if she thinks she can any way be of
use to you, she permits you to come
gradually into her life, and between
you may grow up a friendship that
may last through life, even unto
death. lluth Ashmore in Ladies
A Word of Encouragement.
We never haye more than we can
bear. The present hour we are al
ways able to eudure. As our day, so

many years were gathered into one,
they would overwhelm os; there
fore, in pity to our little strength,
he sends first one, then another,
then removes both, and lays on a
third, heavier, perhaps, than either;
but all is so wisely measured to our
strength that the bruised reed is
never broken. We do not enough
look at our trials iq this continuous
and successive viow. Each one is
sent to teach something, and alto
gether they have a lesson which is
beyond tho power of any to teach
"Slrenuth for to-day is all we need
For there never will be a to-morrow;
To-morrow will prove but another to
day With its measure of joy and sorrow."

Mamma said: "Little one, go and see
Jf erandmother's ready to come to tea."
1 knew I mustn't disturb her, so
J stepped as gentle along, tiptoe,
And Htood a moment to take a peep
And thero was grandmother fast asleep!
I knew it was time for her to wake ;
I thought I'd give her a little shake,
Or tap at her door or softly call ;
.But I hadn't the heart for that at all
fShe looked so sweet and so quiet there,
l.ving back in her old armchair,
With her dear white hair, and a little
That moans she is loving you all the
. I didn't make a speck of noise;
1 knew she was dreaming of little boys
Anil jrirls who lived with her long ago,
And then went to heaven she told me
T went up close, and didn't speak
One word, but I gave her on her cheek
The softest bit of a little kiss,
.Tust in a whisper, and then said this:
"Grandmother, dear, it's time for tea."
She opened her eyes and looked at me,
And said: "Why, Pet, I have just now
f a little angel who came and seemed
To kiss mo lovingly on my face."
1 never told her 'twas only me;
I took her hand, and we went to tea.
FhhIiIuii In Comb.
The question of combs is an im
portant one this year. The high
coiffure worn in the evening neces
sitates a hair ornament, and the in
genuity of the comb and hairpin
artist has been taxed to fulfill the
Beautiful designs are shown in
shell combs with steel ornaments.
These combs are small, and are
either high, medium high or long
and narrow, andcomposd of real
shell teeth and finely cut steel-

like so many small diamonds, and
which cost in proportion to the cut

bands of Rhine stones or half
moons or circlets, to clasp the. high
upstanding knot. Very few side
combs are shown any more. They
became too popular to be any longer
Vossible. Among the latest in shell

the Mercury wings, Iloth these
styles are appropriate to the high
The very uewest fad in hairpins
is.a little ornament which will be
most gladly weloomed by the wo
man of many stray locks locks so
refractory that no amount of coax
ing, pomading, brushing, training
or anything eldie will persuade to
remain in place and so to fill this
long felt wint a new hairpin has
been devised. This little ornament
consists of a narrow band of gold,
between two and three inches long,
studded with Rhine stones. The
back of the. band is fastened to a
gold hairpin, which is slipped under
the hair, drawn up to the base of
the knot, waterfall or English bun,
and when the hair is smoothed the
outside band of Rhine stones is shut
down and fastened to the hairpin un
derneath, and my lady's stray locks
are supposed to remain in perfect
order until the next dressing. If
the inventor of this simple con
trivance has succeeded in ac
complishing what he promises, he
has indeed conferred a boon on suf

It is again In good taste to display
the handkerchiefs. Because of this
the newest handkerchiefs are mar
vels of daintiness, being mere bits of
the finest and sheerest of linen, with
hemstitched and lace-flounced
edges. The handkerchief is tucked
into the front of the blouse or jacket.
Dolly Madison carried these little
squares of lace and the variety and
excellence of her handkerchief
supply were notable enough to' be
referred to even to this day." '
; It is stated upon the most reliable
authority that white petticoats
and only white petticoats will be
considered good form by the time
spring arrives. As this is so it will
pay one to give attention to ; the
white goods and embroidery that
the shops put on special sale at this
time of the year. Hemstitched
flounces for white .petticoats will
take the lead.
! In the shops, I have noticed, there
are many most attractive designs
and tints In jeweled embroidery,
sold by the yard for flouncing skirts
and frilling bodices. The founda
tion of this is usually chiffon or
mousseline detioie. The mousseline
is much less flimsy than the chiffon
and better for skirt purposes.. ,
There are stays to match ' the
silken petticoats. A -pair of blaok
brocaded tays flowered in pink and
blue enables one to wear a petticoat
of the same kind In the daytime,
and a plain pink or blue glace silk
In the evening, though white satin
brocaded stays of a frilled petticoat
of white glaze silk is more accord
ing to fashion's liking.
i jacket linings are now preferably
of i figured si'.k. ' A jacket of
astrakhan seen lately was lined with
a heavy, though soft, black silk,
spotted over with little clusters of
F link and blue flowers . with green
eaves. As the lining came; quite
up to the under-front, edges, : it
showed very prettily, and just
enough, when the jacket was . un
fastened, j i
Modistes are beginning to make
use of plaited satin ribbons with the
plaits sewn down on the upper edge
by means of invisible stitches. They
are sometimes used in several dif
ferent widths, but if of one only,
preference is given to No. 12 or 16.
From both London and Paris it is
reported that innumerable ; small
buttons are being put upon the most
stylish gowns and jackets' now in
tne bands of fashionable modistes,
but no big buttons are in evidence.
Elephant skin for pocketbooka
and card-cases is the success of the
season, but should not be purchased
unless mounted in silver filigree.
This is needed in order to set off the
rough appearance of the skin.
Rhinoceros skin is made up in the
same articles. The skin is rougher
and heavier than the elephant's
and the wrinkles are deeper. Al
ligator skin is still fashionable, but
must have heavy and wide mark
ings. The greenish tones are con
sidered the most stylish.
Appliques of black lace on white
gauze must be counted among the
newest and most attractive of the
season's notions. Blouse front and
sleeves made up of the black and
white are very modish as well as
The belt par excellence and the
(very latest is not of metal, or of gold
or silver, but is an inch wide band
of velvet, upon the black surface of
which are set deigns in finely cut
steel beads or flat turquoise orna
ments. The steel designs are in saw
teeth, in Grecian keys, in circles,
half moons and so on, and the hand
some steel buckle fastening gives an
air of distinction and good taste.
Those decorated with turquoise are
naturally more dressy, and as tur
quoise is so fashionable this winter
they promise to be In great demand.
The Stylish Fan.
The newest fan is a revival of the
old-time Watteau style, in small
sizes, The designs, painted on satin,
silk, gauze and honlton lace, are
among the more expensive, but even
those on the cheaper fans are often
exquisite. The fan has the scene
with tho figures, and flower gardens,
green trees and tinted skies, so fa
miliar in Watteau style, painted on
the face, and the clouds, trees ana
greensward reproduced on the back,
only omitting the figures and flower
beds. Then tnere is a tiny watteau
medallion, set in the midst of most
exquisite sprays of mignonette, clus
ters of violets, with here and there
a daintily colored butterfly or a be
spangled dragonfly. An Empire fan
is shown of black, red, white or
dark green gauze, with lace figures
and designs over it, outlined with
tiny spangles which eaten tne re

A FHotojfrph Screen.
Nearly every womai has an ac
cumulation of photographs that she
doesn't know what to do with.
There isn't one in the lot that she
could bear to destroy, and yet they
are very much, in the way. bhe
really can't afford to pack them en
tirely out of sight, for many or the
orlginaU may appear on the scene
at any time. A photograph ecreen
solvesthe problem and makes the
disposition of the pictures an easy
matter. These screens come in
all sizes, holding from four to one
hundred or more photographs. They
are made of silk, satin or cedar
wood, And the panels fold after the
style of the ordinary screen. . One
side is hand painted in water colors
and the other is entirely filled with
pockets for holding the pictures. A
folding screen is a useful article in
bedroom, boudoir or living room,
and one covered with the faces of
one's friends or of interesting per
sonages is particularly valuable and
interesting. The beauty about the
photograph screen is that if one gets
tired of the faces all that one has to
do is to turn them to the wall and
then rest the eye on the pastoral
scenes on the other side of the
" THE EMERGENCY SHELF.
What to Do When Unexpected Guests Ar
rive at the Home.
The "emergency shelf" is now a
part of almost every well regulated
household. Guests are nearly al
ways expected and provided for. So
it might be better to speak of them
as unheralded rather than unex
pected. With the clean and palatable pre
parations of evety kind now on the
market company need have no ter
rors for any woman who is not un
duly disturbed or abnormally nerv.
ous. : At the same time the .occa
sions are rare when a visitor is un
able to notify the hostess before
hand. That he or she so often . neg
lects to do so is matter for regret in
the opinion of the one who writes
this article. Nobleness should con
strain in this respect as in many
others.' 11 ' .'
Nevertheless, as people will come
unannounced, and as husbands will
bring home chums without tele
graphing, the remedy for flurry and
worry is simple: Have on i; your
emergency shelf a few cans of i peas
and tomatoes best brand beef ex
tract for bouilion, .sweet corn, some
jars of tomatoes canned whole for
salads, a few bottles of salad dress
ing, a Dackaze of self raisin? flour.
cans of salmon, corned beef, codfish,
the best brands of canned soup, pre
serves,' jellies, dried fruits and nuts,
olives, pickles, and In quite cold
weather the delicious little cream
cheeses in tintful coverings. Of
course the housewife will under
stand that it is wise to' have more
than two or three of the latter on
hand at once. '- 1 .
Then there are such; toothsome
preparations of plum pudding, minc
ed ham and tongue, boned' turkey
and chicken, etc., that one scarcely
knows where to draw the line. Con
densed, milk, of cours?, should have
a place. Crystallized figs and sweet
chocolate are always acceptable to
fill a pretty little bonbon dish.
Meat and cheese wafers , are con
venient, and also all kinds of fancy
Fresh meat, of course, cannot be
kept in any great quantity, but one
or two extra chops or cutlets will
never come amiss.
The main thine to remember is to
keep the stock fully replenished, re
placing each article promptly the
very day after it is used.
, ,. .The Use of Ammonia. . .,
The wide use ol ammonia to assist
in all household cleaning demands
that the maids of the household
should be instructed in the neces
sity of removing its traces from
many surfaces upon which it has
been employed. Nothing is more
injurious to paint and varnish than
ammonia, and if it is used to remove
some especially stubborn spot the
surface should be quickly wiped
over with a clean cloth wet with
clear water. For linoleum ammonia
is equally bad unless it is quickly
rinsed. , It is this little knowledge of
her cleaning drugs which makes
them so dangerous in the hands of
the average . housemaid. One who
ued a cloth dipped in ' crude oil to
wipe over the surface of a stained
floor saw no reason why the same
could not be applied to the highly
polished surface of an old mahogany
table. The result, naturally, was
disastrous to its finish, and recourse
