If we were asked the reason why " Viavi " performs such wonderful cures, we would be honest, and say, ""We don't know." Ask a scientist why an apple invariably falls down ward, and he would say it was due to the law of Gravitation. That is about all he could tell you. It ia no more natural for bodies to gravitate toward the center of the earth tb-n it is for " Viavi " to cure the dir eases peculiar to women. It is not a drug, but a food, which nourishes and strengthens the affected parts, thereby enabling nature to throw off the disease. Our Health Book sent free. KANSAS VIAVI CO., Topeka, Kas.

Bow to FabkB a Very 6oxi Ball Bat or a Settle for the Farlor A Littlsi Ingenuity ud a Pot of Glue Will Do It. The utilization of old furniture in furnishing' the home has not received the attention to which as a measure of economy it is entitled. The possibil ities of an old chest ."of drawers that has outlasted its usefulness as such, have seemingly remained undiscovered to many persona. While the new uses to which it can be put are manifold, space will only permit pointing1 out a few of the most usefuL A very prood hall seat may be fash ioned from any ordinary bureau. Thai HALL BRAT FEOM AS OLD BUBKAU. shown in figTire . 1 was made from one of those swell front affairs, so familiar in New England homes of the past, but of course any similar shape or pat tern would be equally fitting. To make the change it is necessary to re move the upper drawers, upholstering the 6pace left thereby seat, sides and back. The flat top of the bureau, of course, will. not be' required as such, and can be utilized as a seat by cutting to the proper size and nailing in place. The cushion may be removable and can be covered with denim, jute, vel our or corduroy to suit one's purse. The back and sides should be padded, covering with the same material as cushion. Finish the edges neatly with gimp of suitable color or small brass headed nails. Should the wood be dark mahogany any of the shades of denim now olfered will answer admii ably, and the pillows and bolsters, if used, may be decorated to advantage with outline designs. The suggestion of using so humble a material as denim is with a view to economy; more costly material may be used when desired. A very handsome little settle may be fitted up in the parlor. in much the same manner. Figure 2 illustrates what may be done in this direction. Have the bureau well scraped so as to remove all of the old finish. After the cabinet work is effected give three coats of inside white paint laid on A BETTLK FOB THE PABLOB. evenly, finishing off with one or two coats of white enamel. The settle a shown here has been decorated witH papier mache or composition orna ments, which can be appl ied with glu and nailed in place to suit one's fancy. "When hard, these ornanfents may be softened by wrap ping in a cloth, wrung out in hot water, after which they may be twisted to any design required. House decorators and picture framera are large users of such material, and amateurs may purchase of them. When such ornamentation is attempted it should always be previous to the painting, and may after this latter process is effected be further touched up with gold paint. A beautiful white and gold divan of small dimen sions, particularly well adapted for placing against the back of an upright piano, can be gotten up in this manner at small expense. Upholstering crl silken texture and cushions of India silk will complete the ensemble. Decorator and Furnisher. Ho to Stake Powder Stick. If yon must use powder and it won't stick on, try this: Get an ounce or two of cocoa butter costs about ten cents an ounce and looks like tallow. Bub it on your face briskly until the skin is well greased. Take a soft linen cloth and rub the butter off and you will wonder where all the dirt came from; then repeat the process, this time rubbing the skin well after applying the butter. Again rub the face with the cloth and apply it vigorously. After that rub on the powder and your skin will feel like satin. You ccn use it on the neck and arms the same way and it is not likely to rub oS. and make your skin look shiny. Cocoa butter is a good skin food and is harmless. For Wardrobe and ChiiTonler. A delightful recipe for scent-powder, to be used for wardrobe, boxes, etc., far finer indeed than any mixture sold in the shops, is the following: Cori ander, orris root, rose leaves and aro matic calamus, one ounce each; laven der flowers, ten ounces; rhodium, one fourth of a drachm; musk, five grains. These, after being thoroughly mixed, are reduced to a powder. Placed among' feminine finery, this sachet has the same effect upon clothes that would be produced by fragrant flow ers, if pressed between the folds. Bos for the Sewing; Koorn. A .sewing machine rug is the latest addition to domestic appliances. It is a sheet of denim, about the size of an ordinary bed sheet, in the middle of which the machine stands. All the snippings and threads fall on the rug and the latter may be shaken off at the 'close of the day's work without the bother of sweeping and dusting the room.. A Mil NEW STYLES FOR SPRING. The -walking: costume on the right is of shepherd's plaid, with a gray and white check ground and green and red over plaid. Hercules braid trims both skirt and coat. The vest front is of white cloth. The visiting' costume at the left is of India silk trimmed with two lace flounces, the wider at the top. Very wide jockeys edged with lace are on the shoulders, and there is an ineroyable bow of black moire. The colors are black over baby blue. The figure in the center is a fatig-ue dress of narrow stripes in tweed. Rows of Russian embroidery reach from top to bottom on five seams. The waist is a Norfolk blouse with Russian embroidery yoke. There aire bishop sleeves and a leather belt encircles the waist. Isn't it comical how fashion can de cree the rale of some particular article or style of dress and how women will perform the kowtow and accept it? Now it is the rever. It does not matter at all, at all, what pattern nature has seen fit to cut you by individually, if you are a woman you must be revered that is, you must wear revers. You may rebel and declare you are too short, or too fat, or too long, or too lean, your dressmaker will regard you with superb scorn, while she allows you a wee small voice in the shape of your revers. You may have them pointed and narrow or fat and flaring. You may be perfectly conscious that when you get into them you will bo submerged by them, and you may court effacement by ordering the fat and flaring sort. Yon may select your material, your liberty ranging from moire to wool or calico, but you must accept your destiny, and destiny decrees revers. The only consolation to be de rived from the situation is that fashion has the reputation of being somewhat fickle and may change her mind soon. Jeannette H. Walworth in New York Mail and Express. One on Mrs. Helmnth. Mrs. William Todd Helmnth, the new president of the Sorosis, tells a good story on herself with great enjoyment, being so proud of her husband's (Dr. William Todd Helmuth's) decidedly handsome person, and herself by no means an unattractive woman. She has in her employ a negro butler, who is an old servitor, and who appreciates Dr. Helmuth's good looks in a manner sec ond only to Mrs. Helmnth. One morn ing the man came to her and said, with enthusiasm: "Mrs. Helmnth, I sutting ly do think Dr. Helmnth is de bes' look in man in dis town. When I opened de do' dis mawnin fo' him to go out, I said to myself, 'I don' believe de Lawd ever made a han'somer man ' dan Dr. Helmnth. ' " "James, " said his mistress gravely, "what do you suppose ever made the doctor marry as plain a wom an as I am?' The man looked at her for moment reflectively. Then the reply came in measured tones, "Mrs. Hel mnth, ma'am, it was de will of Gawd." A. Well Bronght Up Mother. The Pall Mall Gazette, in a discussion cf the much discussed "revolt of the daughters," gives the following pen picture of what is supposed to constitute a "well brought up mother:" "She must never ask questions lest she be told lies. She must learn not to make inconvenient remarks and allow ber daughters to say the social thing that is not, to her own domestic knowl edge, with an unmoved countenance. She must not insist on the fair, frail creature wearing warmer clothing or 6touter boots than is consistent with fashion. She must not venture to criti cise the outsides of letters or examine ball programmes. She must know every thing and seem to know nothing and remember' or 'forget' according to the exigencies of the moment. She must consent to be caressed in public when 6uch an exhibition is effective and snubbed on occasions when the maternal element is at a discount. ' Misa Emily T. Gerry. It may surprise many persons to know that a daughter of the. late Eldridge Gerry, a signer of the Declaration of In dependence, is living. She is Miss Emi ly T. Gerry, an aunt of Commodore El bridge T. Gerry, and she lives alone with a few servants in an old fashioned roomy house in New Haven that has long been a part of the Gerry estate. Until five years ago Miss Gerry was perfectly sound in body and mind, but she receiv ed a stroke of paralysis which confined her to her bed. Lately her eyesight has failed her and her mind has lost much of its power. On April 13 the venerable lady saw the ninety-second anniversa ry of her birth. Her ill health would not permit a celebration, but she receiv ed a few call3 from intimate friends and many notes of congratulation. Kew Haven Letter. Feminine Kifle Shots. Miss Pryor, sister of Major W. R. Pryor, lata of the Twenty-second regi ment of New York, is very skillful with both rifle and pistol. Miss Pryor prac tices several hours each week at a private shooting gallery. She has handled a rifle since she was a girl and is a wonderful fancy shot. ' The Kildare club, which has its happy hunting ground in the AdirondackSj numbers almost as many good feminine as masculine shots among its members. The costume of the ladies of the Kildare club is a pretty tweed dress, with a shortish skirt, knickerbock ers, a trim coat and a small, soft hat. The outfit is similar to that of young English girls, who of late have gone in for shooting with so much earnestness. Philadelphia Ledger. Mrs. Cleveland. Mrs. Cleveland is not a beauty in the sense of society's beauties. She is rather of the Musidora style, which one swain would see and apostrophize in her sim ple elegance, and at the turn of her rus tic head toward him would run away, as if from virtue's wonder. It is pos sible that with time those northern, tin coquettish charms might grow a little hard. In a superior country church, at a Sunday school picnic, at the seaside harvest home when Neptune throws his long arms aleng the beach and seeks to crawl ashore, this pleasing, proper wife would be a charming setting to the shadows, greenery or sun. Cincinnati Enquirer. What It Implies. To a good citizen, man or woman, the right to vote should imply the hon orable exercise of a grave trust, the con scientious consideration of the history, the significance and the tendencies of na tional movements and political situa tions. Personally I am not impatient for this proposed extension of the suffrage. But when it comes, as come it will, I shall gladly recognize the obligations involved. Mary Mapes Dodge. MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE. Kentucky has 13 legal reasons for di vorce. Forty states and territories forbid mar riage between an uncle and niece. In all countries January, June and July are the favorite months for mar riage. The English marriage ceremonies are of three kinds by banns, by license or before a register. In Prussia 18 and 14 are legal ages at which men and women may contract a matrimonial alliance. A New York wife was granted a di vorce because her husband threw the baby at her when she hit him with the coal bucket for spitting on the stove. A Missouri divorce was once granted because "the defendant goes gadding about, leaving this plaintiff supperless, or if he gets any he has to cook it him self." - The most frequent cause for divorce granted by the Greek church is "disap pearance." Over two-thirds of the whole number of divorces are granted for this reason. In Pennsylvania a henpecked husband was relieved from the yoke of matri mony becausa "the defendant struck this plaintiff a violent blow with her bustle." The Scottish marriage law is so loose that if a lady living with John Smith is addressed in the presence of Smith as Mrs. Smith and answers to the name the courts have decided that she is legally iia wife. Gallus divorced his wife because she ran about with her head bare. Vetus got rid of his because he saw her talking with a freed woman; Sophus, because she went to the theater; Amillius Pan lus.because he did not like her. St. Louia Globe-Democrat.
