Fosdick has In several Instances represented to ladies of Topeka that his process is the same as my own. I desire to say what I know about this man Fosdick. I met him March 5 as per arrangement; made up ma terial at his home until March 12 and discovered he was paying too close attention to my part of the business. I told him that a part of this pro cess i kept secret for some years. For reply he said, "Amos, I am honest. If I wanted your process, 1 would say, how much do you want for Ity" still paying close attention to niy part of the business. March 8 I cleaned my first carpet in Topeka for Mrs. Allen Cameron. so7 Chandler street, a good, kind and, I believe Christian lady. She as well as her husband were suprised at the wonderful transformation, so much so that they brought In some of their neighbors to see what they called a new carpet. I also removed some grease spots from another of her carpets. This lady is a daughter of this man Fosdick, and it was the first carpet he saw cleaned, auxl was as much surprised as others that were there at the time. Strange, lie did not remove some of the spots oil his daughter's carpets with his Harmula, that he knew the uses of forty years ago. His cards are a copy of my own, which I had printed July a, i&3. If the above method of work, as done bv J. II. Fosdick, shows, as he claims, honesty and responsibility, then my Webster and Worches ter are both wrong. 1 claim he has treated me very unfair. Do you, ladies, think he would treat you any better? J. H. Fosdick could not clean his daughter's carpet, yet he is ready to promise satisfaction to all others at verv short notice. Perhaps I made material too often at his house. Amos N. Eshleman. TO THE LADIES I have brought the Amos process of carpet cleaning to this city to bo here permanently, and wUi say that It gives general satisfaction la every case. In order that those that do not know one process from another, and desire to try my process, if they will kindly leave their order at Ladies' Exchange, 119 West Sixth street. H. D.

The sticky work connected with, them is awkward and trouble some. So readers may like a clippings box, which will prove very useful, as it permits one to keep clipping's until they can be discarded for later ones. Buy some g-ood-sized square envel opes and write on the flap of each in distinct classification headings: "Club Notes,". "Puzzles," eto., until all the subjects that interest you have their own envelopes. Get any ordinary box tot the width and height iof the envel ope amd some silver wire that is heavy enough to be firm, and soft enough to BOX FOB CLIPPINGS. be easily managed. With a carpet needle prick holes along the two sides of the box where the ribbon is shown in the design. Then run the wire through these holes so as to make it stand out in points inside the box, as shown in the design. Do you see that this wire lining the box on each side gives a set of brackets down the length of your box into which the envelopes are to be slipped? The disfigurement of the box upon the outside may be covered with a band of ribbon with a rosette bow at the corner. Ribbon across the top, too, will be pretty and serve as a ground for a painted or written in scription, "Clippings." Aunt Laurie, in X. Y. Recorder. PRETTY BED SPREADS. Cbsrmlnt patterns Which Are Delight ing Good Housekeepers. A pretty spread may be made with a series of squares of linen worked in a pattern resembling tiles. White linen is often used for these spreads, but quite as pretty are some of the tinted fabrics so popular now pale blue, green or fraise, for example such as may be worked with white flax thread and trimmed with torchon lace and in sertion. The size of the larger squares depend in great measure upon that of the spread, and they may be made all exactly in the same or in different man ner, according to fancy. These squares are connected with bands of insertion, and these are fin ished with tiny squares of linen em broidered to match the rest. A deep frill of lace should be carried round the edges. Some workers make coverlets such as this of a series of linen doy leys, such as 'may be bought ready traced at the shops. Instead, too, of connecting them with bands of inser tion, a pretty effect may be obtained by using them alternately with squares of drawn threadwork, guipure d'art, or fine crochet. The frill round the edges, of course, must correspond. Another pretty bed spread may be made of a square of tinted linen bor dered all round with a broad hem (about five inches wide) of a second color. Partly on the center and partly on the hem should be traced a flowing oattern to be worked in white flax thread, and in the center should be traced a colossal initial or monogram. Other spreads may be made of cre tonne, the design being accentuated and partly filled in with stitches of col ored silk and perhaps an outlining of tinseL Large tassels of parti-colored threads should be sewn on at intervals along the sides. Chicago MaiL Evolution of White Costards. At a cooking-school lecture, the teacher demonstrated the evolution of some white custards that should go down to posterity. They are made as follows: Break the whites of four eggs into a small teacupful of granulated sugar, mixing thoroughly, but not beating the eggs. Into this is stirred, gradually, a pint and a half of rich milk, previously heated thoroughly, but neither scalded nor boiled. The mixture should be quite smooth before being put into the cups; if not, it should be strained. Place the cups in a pan of water and cover with thick brown or buttered paper to prevent their coloring. They should be quite white when done. Bake in a moderate oven. The Slltc Hosiery Temptation. The exquisite elegance of the new silk hosiery is tempting enough to bankrupt the most resolute woman's allowance. Black silk stockings have Chantilly lace insertion up the front and daintily embroidered cream white ones have lace inserted clocks up the side, while between these subdued colors there is every variety of fantas tic design interwoven in color with black. YVP1I HOUSEHOLD DRUDGERY. Why TO omen Should Break Away from Time-Honored Systems. It is a well-established fact that American housewives are the slaves of conventionality and method if ever women were. What we need is a declaration of independence from this present cast-iron system that makes us all do the same thing on exactly the same day and at the same hour, not be cause we want to, oh no, but be cause everybody does so we must. Our mothers washed on Monday, ironed on Tuesday, baked and 'mended on Wednesday, gave the girl her after noon on Thursday, swept the house on Friday and baked on Saturday; bless your heart, it was always done this way, and who dares jump the fence? And to forego the big, hot Sunday din ner would be a heresy from which the stoutest and most progressive heart refrains. I know that the time-honored prophecy is based on Patrick Henry's saying that there was no way of judging the future but by the past, but with due respect to that worthy gentleman, there is a better way, for where would progress bd were that the principle of life? We should be in a continuous round, a cir cle, a treadmill, from which there would be no escape; as yesterday was so will to-morrow be. Why not select a new way of doing even the old things just for a change if for no other motive; it is the same old groove, or rut, that grinds us down and whit tles us into the sharp points that we so much dread; so then, first of all, let us dispense with some of the luxuries, say the big Sunday dinner that entails so much work on the feminine portion of the home, and let us eat that meal some other day or if you. will have a big dinner on that day go to the res taurant and give the wife a little, at least, of a different kind of cooking; true it may not be savory as tlie home made article, but it will enhance our appreciation of that article. Then in stead of burdening our souls on Sun day evening with the query as to whether the washerwoman will 'come on the morrow, and the preparations for her reception, in the way of getting up the tubs and sorting over the soiled clothing, why not leave these rites until Monday, gather up our clothing on that day and wash on the next; if not, why not? There are a number of things that might be done, but Rome was not built in a day nor will all the reforms come in a day. Grace Ter hune, in Womankind. SAFETY-PIN HOLDER. Clever In Design and Mice Enough for Any Nursery. There are all styles and shapes of pin-cushions, from the practical, old fashioned square design to the latter day bit of giddiness frills and ruffles and ribbons. Horseshoes, tambourines, crescents, four-leaf clovers, triple bolsters, and a dozen different fancies, are to be seen in gowns of satin, over laid with foamy frills of lace. With such a varied choice, is it any wonder that the most elegant conceit in silver pin trays fails to banish the cushion from my lady's dressing-table? A nursery belonging most attractive in its way is the safety-pin holder. This consists of several circular layers of bright tinted flannel, pinked at . the edges and topped by a circular piece of celluloid, the whole being fastened together in the middle by a few strong stitches. In letters of gold, you read upon the celluloid cover the hint to "look within for a safety-pin." The decapitated head of a Chinese doll is fastened in the center of the celluloid. Party Dresses for Girls. Party dresses for little girls are quite as attractive as the childish beauties of the little wearers deserve. The main idea on which the small maiden's "party dress" is built is a low-necked, short-sleeved slip of silk, over "which is draped gauze, tulle, chiffon, or mus lin, the skirt and bodice being made in one in the silk slip, the skirt either made full or flaring, in nine-gored shape. If there is muslin worn over this, it is a mass of frills, rflgh in the neck, the sleeves coming down to the wrists and the whole enriched with beautiful needlework. Lace and body ribbon are also used in the production of elaborate effects. Preserving Baby's First Shoes. A recent fad among young mothers ia to have baby's first 6hoes made objects of beauty and sentimental interest through the agency of. some metal preparation that is poured over the little shoe, causing it to retain its shape and showing all those dear little spots and dents, so precious in the eyes of the fond parent. An enter prising firm has hit upon this plan, and from the success they are making the idea proves itself a very popular one.
