Chief among the novelties im

gowns mai close m th manner

profit by this latest style, but it is to
be hoped that none but women with

The height of skirt elegance is the
one that fits smooth over the hips,
laces for the length of the placket
at the back and flares out in fair
fashion toward the bottom. This
would no be at all becoming to the
woman with large hios, for the sud

of style. If nature lias endowed you
with hips that do not slope gradu

Mr. D. L. Moody tells this story of

boy in college and he was about to
graduate. He wrote back to the
farm to his mother to come. Rhe
replied she could not do so. She
said her clothes were worn and she
had no money to buy new ones for
the occasion. 8he had already
turned the skirt once and it was rag
gea on ootn sides. He askd her to
come anyway. The old woman went,
dressed in her best, which was not
stylish. The commencement was In
a fashionable church. The son was
prouder of his mother than of all his
honors. He walked with her down

What we call a pot roast the
French call braised meat, and with
their cooks it is a favorite method
of prepiring beef mutton, veal and
poultry. In their capable hands it
is a delicious and nutritious way of
cooking, but part of their success is
du to the earthen vessel which they
use, and which we cannot submit to
our fierce fires. Our substitute for
it is the procelain lined pot or the
irranite ware in such common use.
Hut neither of these is a perfect suc
cess. Having uothing better, however,
the best we can do is to employ the
same methods as far as we can.
Meat cooked by braising is shut in
a closely covered pot, with a few
slices of salt pork (laid under the
meat to prevent it sticking to th
pot), a mixture of vegetables, all cut
into small dice, a little soup stock or
water and a bouquet of herbs, and
cooked slol v iu the confined steam.

Poor Way to Economise.
"It is most difficult to economize,
and the most difficult part of it is to
know in what direction to practice
economy," said the wise worn m.
"Often those who do it will carry
their economy to too great an ex
treme. The right way to do it is to
itet along without extras and use
just what is necessary for everyday
comfort. It does not mean that
there should not be enough, nor any
derivation of necessary omforts.

To Secure a I'ure Breath.
The purity and sweetness of the
breath are as necessary for the com

personal cleanliness in other re

cause of a malodorous breath, and
there is absolutely no other excuse;
should it exist, however, in either
case, a certain amount of care will
lessen this very trying affliction.

functions of the body is the first
