'1 ho udd ers of the Hoy Scouts of America np- preclnte the danger of large encamp ments and for that reason announced some months ago that they would have no national encampment They pointed out that It Is much wiser for the boys to get their first experience in camping in small groups. They also have sent out bulletins to the scout masters of the extreme neces sity of using all sanitary precautions in camping and warning the scout masters not thoroughly versed In methods of having eanips sanitary against taking the boys into camps of more than two or three days. The Illustration shows a couple of New Tork boy scouts enjoying a feast of watermelon beside their tent. Magnetic Currents. Procure a gold ring, the more mas sive the better, and attach It to a sills thread about a dozen Inches long. Fasten the other end of the thread around the nail Joint of the forefinger of the right hand. Rest your elbow on the table to steady your hand and bold the thread in such a position as to allow the ring to hang about halt an Inch above the surface of the t:i ble. Hold your Unger out straight and throw back your thumb as far as pos slble. So long as there is notlilnj; on the table the ring will remain station ary. Place some silver coin Immediately below it, when the ring will begin to oscillate back and forth, to and from you. If you bring your thumb in con tact with your forefinger the owl I la Hons will become transverse to their former swing. This may also be ef fected by allowing some one to tills hold of your disengaged hand. These effects are produced by the unimsii magnetic currents given forth by the hands of the experimenters.

Every woman's purse will not allow her to purchase such a sartorial lux ury, but it Is a stunning negligee for the fortunate possessor of a well tilled purse. Sleeve of the Moment. There can be no question that sim plicity will not be the distinguishing feature of the sleeve of the fall. A few weeks ago nearly all bodices and blouses were made with the Asiatic sleeve I. e., cut In ono piece with that garment and minus seams. In the new modes the sleeves are put in separately with just a little fullness, and nearly ail sleeves have a bit of black velvet trimming applied In the bandings, pip ings, pancllngs or buttons. Perhaps the smartest and newest sleeve Is the Breton, which wfll be much exploited. It reaches below the elbow, Is straight and wide and is often made of differ-1' ent material from the bodice. In even ing gowns this feature is effectively carried out In beaded and jetted nets, embroidered tissues and in laces of all kinds. With decollelte bodices sleeves are worn small, so small that sometimes they seem quite absent Dr. Shaw's Influence on Norway. Although the ltev. Dr. Anna How ard Shaw, American suffragist, could not get permission from the authori ties In Christianla to give lectures In churches, it develops the Norwegians are planning to give greater opportu nities to women who must earn their own livelihood. A bill has been in troduced providing liberally for wom en. The measure says they 6ball have access on the same conditions as men to offices of the state with a few 'ex Nervous Young Girls. One Is rather shocked iu this day "I athletics and fresh air to know tmw prevalent neurasthenia Is itmmiii vontiL girls. One Is constantly hearing of nervous breakdowns while girls are still too young to know the uieiiiiitm of nerves, ' This condition has been Inld at the door of the school life by emfnent authorities. it seems that the practically cotitln tious time table of the s'-honl lite ot the present day Is responsible for tin development of nerves. t!lr!s over trained in athletics and In the class room develop a restless incapacity to interest and occupy themselves satis fnctorlly when they return to their homes. To this grinding and pushing Is nlsn due the fact that valuable knowledge of character Is so 111 assimilated that It foils to make life a comprehensible and Interesting whole. The failure Is a serious defect In any system of edu cation. It Is equally injurious, on the other hand, to fill a girl's life with such a continuous round of games and les eons that the knowledge absorbed from both has no time to be digested The modern girl undoubtedly needs more leisure. The art of assimilntlon Is what will make a girl into the competent self reliant womnn who will be able to en Joy applying what she has learned to any circumstance she may find herself in, one who will be able to regard all forms of athletics In their proper pro portion and not become morbid If she is withdrawn from their influence. One ennnot quarrel with games as a means of exercise if they are not car ried to the extreme, but that seems to a great extent to be just the tendency of the schoolgirl's training. Consequently educators are begin ning to see the advantage of giving girls proper exercise by means of prac tical work. There Is a satisfaction In it that cannot find a counterpart In games. The Hay Pillow. "I wish mothers would, first of all, throw away those feather pillows and wool mattresses which their children sleep on and substitute bolsters and beds of bay. It would cost only about 10 cents, and think of the wonderful relief," remnrked a well knows physi cian, "The profuse perspiration of a child at night would be done away with. Children should not be roasted night after night as they are. The hay Is cool and sweet smelling, and the child couldn't do anything but sleep comfortably. "The mothers could get long tufting needles and tuft the bay so It wouldn't form in mounds or slide to one end completely. It would be a good thing if grownups also tried it Once hav ing experimented with It they never would pass through another hot wave without it It is hygenic. cooling, aro matic. It is an easy matter to establish hay beds and pillows in the home. "On hot nights a child should be wrapped in a wet sheet with cold com presses on his head. It would save him great discomfort" Care of the Baby's Feet. Too much care cannot be given the baby's feet The little child's foot is ... t, n Hot nAffv.

The shoes, regardless of whether tbey are buttoned or laced, must not be too tightly fastened or the circulation of the blood will be imped ed. It is a good plan In summer to al low the baby to go barefoot as much of the time as possible about the home. This allows the foot to grow naturally. Children's Names. ' Some parents seem unable to resist the temptation to make a joke with the Christian names of their children. A certain register testifies to the ex istence of a Mineral Waters, a Frosty Winter and an Alfred Days Weeks. There Is something to be said In favor of naming children in the order of their arrival Primus, Secundus, etc. but it is unfortunate for a well known Canadian named Cumber that It should hove fallen to bis lot to be Qulntus, for bis name Is always ap pearing In the papers as Q. Cumber. Encouraging' His Appetite. "When I have any difficulty In get ting my boy of three and a half years to eat bis food at the table we start a little game." said a clever mother re cently. "We name each bite for a member of the family or for a little playmate or some place be has been, and it is surprising what an amount be will eat and enjoy." Nursery Suggestion. For children's rooms and night nurs eries pale pink and white Is a delight ful combination, and while striving to have everything as dainty as possible one must avoid unnecessary fiuffiness, remembering that all draperies, etc., will be paying frequent visits to the laundry. Suggestion to Mothers. If your child's permanent teeth come through irregularly and overlapping they should be straightened. It Is bet ter to remove a tooth if 6vercrowded. as this condition produces decay. 1 1 1 i NOVELTIES We have on display the largest line of CHRISTMAS TOYS and novelties ever shown on Maui.
