The feat of Bryant Is considered re

The Indian was given his head. The
course is in the foothills of the Ozark
mountains and very dillicult for travel.
This distance was covered unerringly
and swiftly by the Cherokee. Though
the task of keeping the trail was dlili

the greatest trouble in keeping in sight

A Salina, Kan., au effort is Ivinsr

drag several miles of road after each

drag places the earth on tho crown tif
the road, where it dries and hardens.
After another rain a repetition of the
fragging carries on more earth, which

Jtpplieations of the drag there is a cot,

Long, Hot Days Afford Leisure Houri
For Marking It.
Summer is an excellent time to re

to get good bargains, and the long, hot
days ai't'ord many leisure hours for
Mow to mark Is the question that
perplexes most housekeepers who can
not afford to older their embroidery
done wholesale. These perp'cxiiies are
twofold—how big the lot tors should be
and where they are to be placed also
what method of enibioidor.v to use.
There is a certain fashion in mark
ing as in most oth-f tilings with whi.n
women concern themselves. Styles of
letters change from season to season
and are likewise governi-d by individ
ual preference. Tims it is impossible
to lay down hard and fast rules. The
siy.es given below are most frequently
used by housekeepers who are conserv
ative in their taste.
For any everyday tablecloth initial
are from three and one-half to four
ire-hes in height, though when a single
monogram is u^ed they are often much
longer. Napkins are narked v. iih let
ters to match, but from. ouo to two
Inches high.
Sheets usually have initials or mon
•igrams from four to fenr and one
half inches high, while the pillowcase
and bolster have similar haters, but

Towels vary more than anything else
in the marking, the ini-i-:!-. ran:.':':.:

of letters Is their |-l,'u Ing. The mos-:
exquisite embroidery is ruined if it is
a quarter of an inch too high or too
low or is not t»quarely- in the middle of
a fold. There is less la'-lty in position
than in any other part of marking,
though the plueo depends upon the
article to be murkod.
For tablecloth the most popular
p'aeo cf marking is to have it so ih-.t
it lies well la from the edge of the
table, yet not so clo:o to the «.-enter as
to be covered by the"' centerpiece.
About eleven or twep-e inches in from

At a recent card party a novelty was
introduced by giving each guest a

These made rather pretty souvenirs to

As gold wire was used and vivlrl
