There is such a pretty way to make the4-- siloes one's constant companion, cays a wriirr in the- Washing-ton Star.

I bsw rvc-'iilly si nniquo illustration of a young" mother's devotion to the memory of her tirst born, whose little life was cut short before the. second birthday. The tir-t button bnc t. of the child were made into a pincushion and jewel ease, url were al ways in use on the mother's dressing oa; e. The; siioe used for a pincushion was lv.it'miieu aiul then stuffed with cotton xxiti.il it wus quite In. id.

The too of the other shoo was sf.ilred back to the middle of the in step: then a piece of stitf pasteboard was mrde round, so as to slip into the ankle of the :,hoe and hold it stiF. It was lined with silk, and from the top was an cxteasion of the silk, with a draw string: the ed-ye of the shoe was iloi:;hed ith rilibon quilling-, like the other. The shoes had been red kid, and the mother had a kind of varnish with which she colored them when the' seemed to gtcw ritsty. The two shoes were firmly gummed to tho little china pl-ite which tho child had always ;-o:ed, and tue whole thinif made a fdainty memento of one so dearly loved. !lf the shots have been black they can "be renewed with slice varnish; if they litivt: been white you can clean them with gasoline, and anyone handy with Sk needle can fix thtia up.

"The secret of seldom wanting- new things is to keep the old or.es well mended." said a thrifty housekeeper as she sh'owcd me a shelf where she kept what she called "patches." There, were little cans of different kinds of paint and enamel, different sized paint brushes, a box of liquid gilt, some yood g"lue and remnants of all the different wall papers. The kitchen hearth was never al lowed to ret shabby, but once a month was treated to a coat of dull Pompeiian red paint. When the g-as fixtures grew disrep utable from being- tarnished with age and mottled with flies they were Riven a coat of common white paint and then reji-ilded. Picture frames whose enamel had yellowed received a new co:.t. The gilding1 was retouched, and the result was a new frame. Old wooden frames were enameled and picked out with gilt or stained mahog-any and var nished. The handsome Chinese umbrella rack was broken, but not on that account discarded, says a writer in the Xew York Recorder. It was mended with cement with the jrreatest care and the ugly lines hidden with a brush dipped in liquid gilt and passed along- the zig zag cracks, really enriching the quaint oriental pattern. TJany a costly vase might 1 e mended by this process, and so long as it was only used as brie-a-brac no one would be the wiser. A g-ood cement for broken china may he made by beating the white of an egg to a pa-;te with Hour; or half an our.ee of gum arabie may be dissolve d in a gill of boiling water and thickened with plaster of paris. The piano movers had broken and torn an ugly gash in the hall wall paper, but a single breadth carefully put on made it as good as new. Looseued chair rnnsrs or arms were always quickly glued in place. A tiny hole in the wire screen door was never allowed to grow larger until iirst the cat and afterward the dog had a free pass into the hall or kitchen. It was promptly mended with fine vir.. and the screen doors were painted every year before they were put up. which make Ixitti wire and frame last twice as long. S'e have all heard the old doggerel: For want rf & nail the hoe was lest: For want of a shoe t!e torso was lost; For Trant of a liorso the rider wus lost. It doesn"t pay to run a house on this plan. HOME ARITHMETIC. This Article Telit How to Measure a Boon for Wall Paper. To determine the nmnber of rolls rA paper to cover the walls of a room, measure the circumference, from which deduct the width of doors and windows and divide the remainder by three. Example. Iet us suppose a room lxli5 feet, which has two doors and two windows, which average four feet wide. 13 plus-12 and 1 pl"s 36 5C oiri-i reference. 4x410, doors and windows.

For a room under 10 feet high, having a frieze say of i inches, we will proceed as before with the measure ment of the room, deducting the width of doors and windows. Hut in this case multiply the remainder by 2 and divide by 15; for this reason, that wa can cut live lengths out of a double roll, which placed side by side on the wall cover a space 7 feet 0 inches from the ceiling, and instead of multiplying by 7 feet 6 inches we multiply both by 2.

Of course, if a dado is required its wid th will determine how much paper will have to be deducted. Carpet and Up holstery Trade Review. An Effective Dry Shampoo. Many women who have luxurious tresses and who take cold easnlj- are obliged to forego washing them as often as they would like because of the difficulty of getting them dry quickly. For such, a dry shampoo is the next best thing, and, if carefully t nd thor oughly done, it removes the accumu lated dust and dandruff almost as well as washing. The hair should be shaken loosely out over the shoulders and the head manipulated with the fingers till all foreign matter is well loosened and ecattered through the hair, whish should then be parted in different places all over the- head, and the parts cleansed with a stiff little brush, after which the entire head and hair should be very thoroughly brushed in sections till th. dandruff is brushed out, as much as possible, when some good hair t onic or scalp cleanser may be rubbed on and the snarls engendered by the whole procebS gently combed out. and the ends of the hair clipped.

WHERE IGNORANCE WAS BLISS. Tlie 1'tigra.lnmat ical Young: Man Who Did Not See the foiut. An up town young man who is fresh to a ftegr.-o that surpasses endurance and who persists m talking all tho time there is anybody in sight went out for the evening one night last week and met a girl from Boston. Although the young man talks con tinually, he occasionally uses somo very bad grammar. One fault is particularly glaring. LTo invariably says "I done, it" for "I did it," and as lie is contin ually talking about himself he makea this mistake many times in the course of an hour. lie engaged the Boston girl in conver sation and told her some fairy tale about something or other that had happened to him. "When he got through, she ex pressed surprise that r,cch a thing could happen and asked him, "Did you really do all that?" "I done it," replied the young man proudly. Then he branched into another ro mance. This was even more startling than tlie first. Tho girl from Boston listened patiently, and when lie had finished po 'liuiy expressed her groat astonishment. ""Why," she said, "can it be possible that you did anything: so wonderful'.:" "That's what I done, " replied ths young man, chucking out his chest as he mado the rema k. The great success of his two stories spurred him to ether efforts, and he re cited another condensed dime novel for f benefit of tiie girl from Boston. ; -n he had finished, the girl sai'i .:, do you know you remind me s ttroiigly of Banquo's ghost?" "You mean the ghost in the Shake speare play?" inquired the young man in a hesitating sort of way. "Yes." "And why?" "Don't you remember that Macbeth said to him, 'Thou canst not say, "I did it?" ' " And until this day tho young man does not know why everybody laughed. Buffalo Express. Helped Herself. The old southern mammy is ono of tho peculiar and picturesque relics of the past, new almost traditional, so sel dom is one found in her native sur roundings. A young southern girl who has been visting in the north gives this amusing bit of local dialogue which took place after her return to her home in Vir ginia, where Aunt Car Tine, an old col ored woman who had always been her attendant, was awaiting on her at table. "Cream in yeh coffee, honev, same as befo'?" "Yes, aunty." "Sugar? Fre lumps, same as befo'?" "Piease, aunty, let me help myself to sugar." " 'Deed, indeedy, yoh don't, honey. Does you drop de lumps in yousef in de norf?" "Always, aunty." "Yoh poor chile! I jes' knowed dey 'bused yoh dar. Done put de sugah in her own coffee! It gibs me a misery jes' to t'ink yoh gc t so tab. 'way from home yob has to do like dat. Dry inns' be pore shitless folks to let yoh do dat, suah enuff. " "And," writes Miss H., "she is still pitying me for having met with such a misfortune and insists on giving me four lumps in every cup as a compensa tion. " Detroit Free Press. A Young: Ilea Shoot. "Gold is a precious metal, " explained the professor, "because of its scarcity. All the gold now in use in the world," he added, referring to a memorandum on the flyleaf of the textbook he xvas using, "according to careful and trust worthy estimates, could be put within the walls of a room 24 feet square.
