They have to be poflany —all the dainty fragile creatioiMMwl (be sea sons, sad though the - Met may be. But another summer IpEami eg, and with this happy foretbdßpi in mind, the prudent housewife brings her common sense to bear oimi (he situa tion and proceeds to her hot weather wardrobeflw a manner worthy of imitation. All her own washabls|frocks and those of the children ai| gathered together and carried to Ihe laundry. There the white color ed ones are y of course, and the colored dresses ~ashed in tepid water and boras, instead of with soap, to present them from fading. The dresses are not ironed, but put away rough dry. It is a mistake to leave either dirt or starch in clothes that are not to be worn for a long time. The presence of either is very likely to rot the material. If it’s a foregone conclusion that the children will out-grow their clothes before another season, it’s a good plan to “let out” and tucks, or even the hems in the skirts of the dresses before washing them. It’s a puzzle to most women to know just bow to put away the fash ionable plaited skirt in silk, challie, or other soft material, so that the plaits will stay in place and be pre sentable a second season without the arduous task of pressing them with hot irons. If each plait is pinned with a small common pin at the bot tom of the skirt, the skirt will look as fresh as new when it comes time to let it see the light of day next summer. By the way, remember that chal lies are woolen textures and need to be protected against moths. Scatter borax on the floor of the closet where the dresses are hung, or better still, if you enclose the dresses in a cotton bag, shake borax generously into the bag, it cannot hurt the gowns and is a sure preventative against moths. Hang ail ruffled petticoats upside down by sewing hangers to the hem. This revolutionary process will keep the ruffles standing out straight and fluffy. Stuff out the waist of non-wash able gowns with tissue paper; use plenty of it in the sleeves and in the waist itself. This will keep the waist in shape and prevent it from being crushed if laid in a trunk or drawer. Bibbons and laces are another problem. Brush each piece of rib bon, wide or narrow, and then, to keep it from creasing, roll it around a piece of pencil or cylinder of paper —the latter is easily made by rolling up an old magazine. Delicate laces should be launder ed in tepid water, to which melted soap and a small quantity of borax have been added. Einse with wa ter of the same temperature. While damp, place them Am on the sides of a porcelain bath-tub or stretch and pin them to the ironing board. Long lengths of lace may be roiled ribbon fashion. It isbelter to baste collars and slocks to a piece of light weight car board and lay them flat in the tray of a trunk. Embroidered sele of turn-overs and cuffs, chemisettes, and all the little accessories that require a bit of starch to make them look dressy, should be put away, like washable dresses, rough dry. White silk gloves can be washed in the same way as laces, only they should be drawn on to the bands and gone over carefully with a clean nail brush dipped in the warm suds. This will remove the dust in the seams and at the finger tips. Rinse while on the hands, remove and dry quickly. Pul away in folds of tissue paper. Tissue paper is really sn indis pensable factor in putting away sum mer clothes. An excellent habit is to save all the pieces that happen to come into the house at any season of the year. Nothing could be a better substitute for a shoe-tree, for instance. Stuff the paper tightly into patent leather and while can vas shoes. It will preserve their shape. And of course tissue paper finds its natural place in a hat box. If possible, put each summer chapeau, after it has been well shaken or brushed, into a separate box and sew the brim or crown with long stitches to the bottom of the box. Then, if by any chance the bandbox loses its equilibrium • during its long winter seclunkw sod turns up side down, (be hat will not be in jured. An excellent plan is to clean a white straw bat throughly before putting it away. Go over it with damp corn meal, rubbing it in well. Next apply dry meal and work thoroughly into the straw; leave it lor some hours. Brush out the meal and wash freely with peroxide of hydrogen. Let it dry in the shade. * i > The Law ot Finding. In common law finding is a quali fied source of title to goods and chat tels. Briefly, the law is that the finder has a clear title against all the world, excepting the owner. The proprietor of a cum* or a railroad car has no right to demand property found on his premises. Such pro prietors may make, in regard to lost articles, regulations which will bind their employees, but they cannot bind the public. The law of finding was declared by the king’s bench more than a hundred years ago (when it was the supreme court of common law in England) as follows: A person found a wallet contain ing a sum of money on a shop Door. He banded the wallet and contents to the shopkeeper to bo returned to the owner. After three years, dur ing which the owner did not call for his property, the finder demanded of the shopkeeper the wallet and the money. The latter refused to de liver them upon the ground that they were found on his premises. The finder then sued the shopkeeper, and it was held, as stated above, that, against all the world save the owner, the title of the tinder is per fect. The finder has indeed been held to stand in the place of the owner. Thus A prevailed in an ac tion against B, who found an article which A had originally found, but subsequently lost. The police have no especial rights iu regard to arti cles lost unless these rights are con ferred by statute. Receivers of ar ticles found are trustees for the ojwnor or finder. In the absence of special statute they have no power to keep an article against the finder any more than a finder has to retain an article against the owner. A finder must, however, use every reasonable means to discover the owner of found goods before appro priating them to bis owu use. It has been declared that if the finder knows the owner or knows that be can discover him be is guilty of lar ceny in keeping or appropriating to himself the articles found.

The best kind of man, tbeoae who makes the best husband and father, is the normal, wholesome, everyday mao. He has no morbid ideas about wo man. He judges her from the same healthy minds standard as be judges all else. The morbid, introspective man will alw&ys command a certain amount of interest from women. They do not understand him, and therefore feel that be must be worth investigating. As a rule be is not. He is pessimistic, self centred and much given to philosophising on subjects which be kqows lit Wo or nothing abom. His admirers are chiefly young girls. Men have not much use (or him, bis business judgment is not is not very reliable and he is not manly and jolly enough to be companion able. His mind grows so distorted by bis queer, morbid views of himself, women, sentiment and the world in general that he is quite likely to end us a suicide or in a lunatic asylum.' The great trouble of it is that bo is apt to make an impression on girls through arousing their sym pathies. Let a woman feel sorry for a man and there is no knowing to what lengths her foolishness may carry her. Hu tells her that she is the only one who understands him, that ail the world is against him, that bur sympathy is so sweet, etc. She soon grows to think that noth ing could be more beautiful tbande voting her life to brightening the dark existence of this blighted be mg. She thinks she has a mission, and once a woman gets that into her bead angels, ministers and potenta tes cannot move her. What 1 would like to impress on the girls in the fact that that while the plain, matter-of-fact meu may not seem quite so romantic they make ten times better husbands than the morbid ones. The best man to marry is a man who is doing bis everyday work to the best of bis ability. He is a rock of strength on which to rely. He looks after his business, bis wife and his family as well as he knows bow. ilo is the man who is making this country what it is. He is nut a hero of romance, he is just a strong, steady, everyday splen did man. He is manly, girls, and that means a great deal. The pessimistic, morbid man is not manly, and take my word fur it, you will be a far happier woman with the former than the latter. Men are not gods, you know, and if they were we'd grow very tired of them. Dou't jump to the conclusion that because a man is different from other men be is clever or wonderful in any way. And when he talks epigrammati cally about women don't imagine that he understands her. A man of this type is interesting enough to talk to occasionally, but to marry, no. Marry the man that you under stand and that understands you. Then you’ll both be happy.—New York Journal. dnnscsmry Zxpans*.

When a woman tellelb her faults, keep thy longue in thy bead and agree not with ber, for that way lietb madness. A woman tbinketh whom she may honor, but the man who seeth not when she stuinbleth, he it is whom her heart chooseth. for be knoweth not that which he knoweth and bis right band is even as bis left. A woman whose tears droppeth continually is a nuisance: she is fill ed with foolishness, and, like a doll that drippeth sawdust, she littereth thine house. If a woman showeth thee ber gray hairs, laugh not, for they who laugh ■ over much, wax foolish and acquire a girth; moke much of ber and cher ish ber, for then, indeed, Is she thy great friend who hath tby good at heart. If a woman love thee well and asketh no gift, give her all thou hast, for she knoweth the secret; she bath learned of life and is wise. Jf one should say ‘Thou lovost mo not enough,” tear thyself from her and make haste in tby going, lest, in a moment of anger, thou dorst her an injury, fur she is not wise she knoweth not the code; she uunoycth continually like a pricker in thy shirt. if thou lovost a woman, bosiogo her with thy presence, for even so are they won. If a woman love a man and is wise, she will make her self exceeding scarce, for man was born to pursuit as the smoke risetb. If thou must put u woman from thee fur reasons of thine own, seek thou first a quarrel and let that suf fice thee, fur the heart knoweth its own bitterness, but no heart knoweth the bitterness of a woman scorned. If a woman toll thee ”Aye, aye, the thing is even as thou sayest," depart from her and keep tby dis tance, for she createtb a thirst and the truth is not in her. If she say, ”Nuy, thou art wrung, fur 1, oven I, Know a thing or two,” abide with her, for better a dinner of thirteen courses and a wife tnou caust argue with, than a meal of herbs and an amiable spouse, A friend is as tby pipe after a long swearing o(T; even so to thee is a woman friend in thine hour of need.
