DESIGNS IN MAUVE ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR COL ORS FOR DECORATION. Properly Carried Out, It Will Add Charm to Any Room Hint a to Oriental Rugo For the Wl dow Shade. Mauve Is becoming a popular color In decoration, but It Ib a color to be wisely and discreetly chosen on ac count of its propensity for not lighting up well. It Is a day color, rather than pno for artificial light, but If carried out In the proper manner and accord ing to certain canons of taste, a mauvo drawing-room or boudoir may bo mado a place of undeniable beauty and charm. Tho floor and woodwork should be stained dark, to afford the best setting for a plain mauve wall pa per, with figured chintz curtains In some of the new art designs or In the stiff old-fashioned (lower patterns with a dash of pink or yellow In the groups of blossoms. A striking chintz with a mauvo ground had a Inrgo white Iris conventionally treated. Striped curtains in two tones of lav ender or green look well with either a plain or figured wall, but tho se verely plain hangings should only bo used In conjunction with a llgured wall paper. These come In lovely patterns wistaria, violets, Iris and trellis designs, making choice a dlllb ,culty. In purchasing oriental rugs be sure to avoid a certain kind made from goats' hair If you are sensitive to odors.

Fasten tho material straight across tho old rollers or buy new ones with many tacks, stitch a wide enough hem at the bottom to hold a flat stick of tho proper width and run it In. Shades that have become ragged at the bot tom arc often improved by cutting and rehemming. A screw-eye fastened Into the center of the stick through the muslin will hold the cord. In making a plain fruit cake, if the raisina and currants aro wanned In tho oven before mixing them In, t hey will not sink to the bottom in "that distressing way." A very good pudding in which to ubo cherries Is made by covering the bottom of a baking dish with the fruit, above this a layer of breadcrumbs and lumps of butter. Go on alternating un til tho dish is full, breadcrumbs being the top layer. Cover the dish and bake ten minutes more to brown tho top. If tho cherries are well sweet ened beforehand, this is an excellent. dessert with a hard sauce flavored with nutmeg. Cocoa Macaroons. Pass through a sieve, together, ono cup of sifted flour, half a cup of gran ulated sugar, two level tablespoonfuls of cocoa, half a teaspoonful of baking powder, one-fourth teaspoonful each of salt and cinnamon, one-eighth tea spoonful each of cloves, mace, and nut meg.

Jerome on Colored Evidence. District Attorney Jerome, of New York, said one day of a piece of sus picious evidence: "Jt is evidence that has been tam pered with, colored. It is like the lady's report of her physician's pre scription. "A lady one day in July visited her physician. The man examined her and said: " 'Madam, you are only a little run down. You need frequent baths and plenty of fresh air, and 1 advise you to dross in the coolest, most comfortable clothes nothing stiff or formal.' "When sho got home her husband asked her what the physician had said. The lady replied: " 'He said I must go to the seashore, do plenty of autoinobiling, and get some new summer gowns.'" She Experimented. A little girl of five was taken tc church one Sunday, and listened with unexpected attention to the sermon which graphically told the story oi the stilling of the tempest on the Sea of Galileo, and how Christ walked on tho waves. In the afternoon her moth er missed her and began an anxious searcli of tho house. As she neared the bathroom she heard sounds ol splashing, nnd hurried to the door tc behold a small, excited face peering over the rim of the big white tub, and to hear a small, excited voice ex claim: "Say, mamma, this walking on the water Is quite a trick."

"When a nerson has to keen the feet out from under cover during the cold est nights in winter because of the heat and prickly sensation, it is time that coffee, which causes the trouble, bo left off. There is no end to the nervous con ditions that coffee will produce. It shows In one way in one person and In another way in another. In this case tho lady lived in S. Dak. She says: "1 have had to lie awake half the night with my feet nnd limbs out of the bed on the coldest nights, and felt afraid to sleep for fear of catching cold. 1 had been troubled for years with twitching and jerking of the lower limbs, and for most of the time 1 have been unable to uo to church or to 'lectures because of that awful feeling that l must keep on the move. "When it was brought to my atten tion that coffee caused so many ner vous diseases, I concluded to drop coffee and take Postum Food Coffee to see if my trouble was caused by coffee drinking. "I only drank one cup of coffee for breakfast but that was enough to do the business for me. When I quit It my troubles disappeared in an almost miraculous way. Now I have no more of the jerking and twitching nnd can sleep with any amount of bedding over mo and sleep all night, in sound, peace ful rest.

John Quincy Adams, of Massachu setts, third of that name, who died about ten years ago, was very fond of fishing, and not especially fond of his legal profession. ' One day, the story runs, a case in which he was counsel was down for trial in a Massachusetts court. Mr. Adams did not make his appearance, but sent a letter to the judge. That worthy gentleman read it, and then postponed the case with the announce ment: "Mr. Adams is detained on im portant business." It was afterward learned by a col league of Adams that the letter read as follows: "Dear Judge: For the sake of old Isnnk Walton, please continue my case till Friday. The smelts aro biting, and I can't leave." CHILDREN TORTURED. Girl Had Running Sores from Eczema Boy Tortured by Poison Oak Both Cured by Cuticura. "Last year, after having my little giri treated by a very prominent phy sician for an obstinate caso of eczema, I resorted to the Cuticura Remedies, and was so well pleased with the al most instantaneous relief afforded that we discarded the physician's prescrip tion and relied entirely on the Cuti cura Soap, Cuticura Ointment', and Cu ticura Pills. When wo commenced with the Cuticura Remedies her feet and limbs were covered with running sores. In about six weeks we had her completely well, nnd there has been, no recurrence of the trouble. "In July of this year a little boy in our family poisoned his hands and arms with poison oak, and in twenty four hours his hands and arms were a mass of torturing sores. We used only the Cuticura Remedies, and in about three'weeks his hands and arms healed up. Mrs. Lizzie Vincent Thomas, Fairmont, Walden's Ridge Tenn., Oct. 13, 1005." Time to Fly.

Lincoln Steffens, in an address on municipal politics, said in Chicago of a certain city: "That city is as notorious for Its rottenness as the town of Pebbles is notorious for another characteristic. "Here Is an incident that will givo you an Idea of the reputation of Peb bles. "On a train ono day n man rushed into a car, held up his hand for atten tion, and shouted excitedly: '"Anybody hero who belongs to Pebbles?' s '"Aye; I do,' said a small, dry old fellow calmly. " 'Then,' said the other, 'lend us yer corkscrew.' " Laundry work at home would be much more satisfactory if the right Starch were used. In order to get tho desired stiffness, It is usually neces sary to use so much starch that tho beauty and fineness of the fabric is hidden behind a paste of varying thickness, which not only destroys the appearance, but ulso affects the wear ing quality of tho goods. This trou ble can be entirely overcome by using Defiance Starch, as it can be applied much mere thinly because of Its great er strength than other makes. Not Entire. The aeronaut, after painfully ex tricating himself from the wrecked balloon, limped to the nearest farm house.

"I'd be glad to," she hesitated, "but you are an entire stranger to" "Not an entire one," he interrupted, with some acerbity. "For I have left my left ear, three teeth, and certain portions of my nose back there with the ruined car." "With a smooth Iron and Defiance Starch, you can launder your shirt waist just as well at homo as the steam laundry can; it will have tho proper stiffness and finish, there will be less wear and tear of the goods, and it will be a positive pleasure to use a Starch that does not stick to the Iron.
