Adequate Attention Necessary for

SMALL, burns are too lightly regard
ed; though seemingly light. If
they are not properly treated or
if the blood is in bad condition
they may fatally mar one's
A young girl dropped some hot
fudge on the forefinger of her right
hand. It did not pain very much,
and after the preliminary scream lit
tle attention was paid to it.
The blister that was raised was
allowed to break rather than be
opened carefully with an antiseptic
needle; poison got into it, the finger
became infected and eventually had to
be removed below the second joints
Exclude air from any burn, however
slight. This can be done in several
ways. If no other remedy is at hand
common kitchen soap applied In a
thick paste helps remove pain.
Wrapping the burned place in a rag
wet in baking soda or keeping it moist
with witch hazel will quickly, give
relief, even to rather severe burns. A
good proportion for the former is to
use a heaping tablespoonful of the
soda to a pint of water.
For deeper burns, that are yet not
serious enough to call in a doctor,
use oils. Carron oil is possibly the
one most easily secured; indeed, a
bottle of it should be kept convenient
In the kitchen, where burnt fingers are
This carron oil is nothing but equal
parts of lime water and linseed oil,
but it is most soothing and healing
in Its effect.
Do 'not neglect a burn as soon as
the first sting is passed. Should there
be the least sign of inflammation or
of pus accumulating call in a doctor
at once.
In case of bad burns it is sometimes
necessary to wrap the victim in cotton
to keep out all air. In such case the
doctor would naturally be in charge.
Satins are to retain their prestige
throughout the autumn and winter,
and manufacturers are launching sev
eral new varieties of this popular fab
ric. Satin directoire, marvelously soft
and supple, is one of the best of these
variations upon the satin theme, and
Is particularly designed to meet the
demands of the clinging directoire
models. This modish costume has a
princess skirt of prune color cloth
with satin casaque coat drawn slightly
across front. As will be noticed, the
sleeves are cut in one with fronts and
backs.- The braiding is done in self
tone soutache and the buttons and
grelots are of black passementerie.

THERE are many ways In which our unused half sheets of note paper
may be utilized for milking memorandums on, and our sketch shows a
very handy little board, designed to answer this purpose. A stout piece
of cardboard forms the foundation, and this is covered both back and
front with dark green art linen and edged with a silk cord. On the
left-hand side a pencil is attached by a fine silk cord, and there is a loop
of ribbon at the top, by which the holder may be hung up by the side of the
: writing table or at some other suitable place. Through the npper part of the
board two small holes are made, and through the upper part of the half-sheets
sot note paper two holes are pierced with a penknife, to correspond with the
i holes on the board. Through the holes in the paper and through the holes in
i the board, a fine silk cord can be passed and tied In a bow at the back of the
i holder, thus keepisvs the paper on the board firmly in its place.
A glance at irVs- sketches will explain all this, and the sheets are easily
torn off one by one after they have been used. A board of this kind is alsc

PRETTY nails are considered a
great beauty. At the base there
should be a white crescent, and
the nails should be as rosy as
the dawn. Beautiful nails are
compared by the poets to onyx, and,
in fact, in Greek onyx means naiL Ac
cording to the mythological legend:
"One day Love, finding Venus asleep,
cut he. nails with the Iron point of
his arrow and flew off. The clippings
fell on the sands of the shore, and as
nothing which comes from the body of
an immortal can perish, the Fates
carefully 'gathered them ups and
changed them into the quasi-precious
stones which are called onyx."
The "art of manicuring" was origi
nated by Stitts, who was Louis Phil
ippe's pedicure. His descendants are
still famous in France, and the Sitts
method, which totally condemns the
use of steel either under or around
the nail, undoubtedly Is the proper
and scientific one. Madame Sitts says:
"An orangewood stick with a little
French amadine will keep the nails
perfectly smooth and clean under
neath. Why roughen them with a
piece of sharp steel or thicken them
with an acid? And as for cutting and
lacerating the cuticle ' around the out
side of the nail, why, that was intend
ed by nature as a selvage (lisiere),
and if you cut It, you make it ragged
Just as you would the selvage on a bit
of cloth. As well cut the border of
the eyelid or ear."
The nails should be cut in a curve
which follows the shape of the end of
the finger. The surface of the nails
should also be polished.
One hour a week spent In caring
for the nails is sufficient to keep them
in good order, if they are rubbed and
cleaned carefully each day.

Persian Effects.
Persian effects are still good, and
are conspicuous among the best mem
bers of trimming collections. One of
the most charming classes of trim
mings, is the one in which the bead
work plays a large part. In these
trimmings fine silk braids of exquisite
weave furnish outlines and the beads
a solid filling for the centers of mo

greens, blues, rose colors, etc., are
worked out in these braids and beads.

their attractiveness to the way they
