KJtchen Refuse She's a True Heroine. "Only two liev.- garments a year, no Ciattcr bow small cr inexpensive as Ion; as they arc new, " is the appeal made "by tho district presidents of tho American Needlework guild in drum mins; up recruits for the organizaiton. Thin nyilework guild is a distinctly new charity r.ud i s eo:idnet'ed on a prin cip:e di.Tcreit from any heretofore at tempted in this eity. The object of the guild is to furnish new, plain and suit able garra-iit-s to tho deserving poor, whether they be in tho hospitals or in their own wretched homes. The idea- of pi vine; new g trmeuts is to raise the self repeet .f unfortunate people who so frequently undergo humiliation in be ing obliged t accept castoff clothing. The headquarters of tho National guild are in Philadelphia, where it was organized nino years ago on a similar plan to that organize! by Lady Wolvcr ton and pat into execution in England. For a time the work in this country was confined to Philadelphia. A branch was eventually started in New York, and a few weeks ago Miss Willard came here from Philadelphia an J organized the third city branch of t w National guild. The meeting was held at the residence of Mrs. Horace Davis. Miss Willard, who had been in correspondence with a number of the prominent ladies of this city, had her plan well outlined and ex plained it in such a comprehensive way that the ladies pretext immediately be came enthusiastic and organized a local branch of tho National guild before the meeting adjourned. Since that it has continued to grow with surprising rapid ity. II. ro it is the middle of summer, when, strictly speaking, all society is out of town and most; charities are tem porarily suspended. But this guild has excited a d:ep rooted rather than a spasmodic interest, which hai grown until it has br-eoire a popular fad. d roups of ladies discussing tho guild ami otitlinir.g plans for its extension may be t'onml tiny morning on tho ve randas cf th fashionable resort hotels. 1c is a recognized topic of conversation. The organisation leitig nonseetarian creates a more gos-.ei al and widespread iut, ; .,st than would otherwise exist. The work is planned on a simple yet practical has:.-.

If wa- ' :.: . e s ; oi t a while till the lathi s -v re wi! liner to con tribute two garments, few felt inclined to assume the re pomi bility of lit) gar-li-.-. iit :.

Mrs. A. M. Eastoa was elected hon orary president of the city branch. Miss C Gwin the president. Miss M. M. (ireer tho secretary and ilrs. W. K. Kmedbc-rg the treasurer. One peculiarity about this charity is its freedom from meetings. Thero are n. weekly or monthly meetings to 1x3 attemle 1 a: id no efter meeting little gossips to bo cujoyol. The charity has no social side, which makes its popular ity all the mure surprising. Once a year there is a meeting at the time of distri bution, but that i? all. When it comes time for the yearlj- distribution, every reetion sends in its collection. One of the down town halls will be hired for tho occasion, and all tho garments that have been donated by the guild mem bers during the year will be on exhibi tion. The public will be invited to at tend and inspect tho display. Mrs. Eas ton and Miss Gwin, assisted by several ladies, will theu scrt over tho articles, da them up in packages, label them and direct an expressman where to take them. Any Reetion is privileged to sug gest to the committee where it prefers having its contributions sent. There is considerable labor attached tothedistr: bntioti, but the lad.es think nothing of their time and work, so interested are they in alleviating the distress of the poor. San Frauciseo Esaminer. Adelaide 31. AnJertion. The good service rendered by women as factory inspectors is attested by the appointment of Mi:ss Adelaide M. An derson to an inspectorial office. Mias Anderson, it is gratifying to remem ber, is the fourth lady inspector detailed to carry out the j revisions of factory legislation as they a'Ject women in tho United Kingdom. She is a daughter of the late Mr. Alexander Gavin Anderson r.uJ is of Scottisj extraction, though Melbourne is her birthplace. She was educat d at (Jirton college and took honors in 1SS7 in tho moral sciences tripos. A year ago she took the Gamble prize at ti o same college by an essay on "Joannes Scotus. " After quali fying for her degree Miss Anderson de voted her time principally to the study "and teaching of subjects dealing with ethics and political economy. Since 1693, however, shi has been occupied with work under tho direction of the (Secretary of tho labor commission. Tho experience gained in this way should prove particularly nseful to Miss An derson in her new office, as should also Iier practical knowledge of the co-opera-Uva movement In tho latter connec- tion it is interesting to note that 2Iis.s Anderson has both lectured to and ex amined, the women of the Co-operative guild in elementary economics. Shj has also been for several years a mem ber of the sou mem section of the Co operative union. From this brief state ment of facta it will be evident that Mi. Anderson possesses str-osrg qualifi cations, which have doubtless had their weight with the home secretary in mak ing the present appointment. London Queen. For Beautiful Anus. Take a two gallon pitcher of water ia the right hand, raise jt over your head and swing it from left to right in a cir cle for five minutes; then reverse tha motion, circling it from left to right, holding the pitcher npright and avoid ing epiiliDg any of the iluid. When this can be accomplished with ease and ac curacy, take a second two gallon pitcher filled with water and 'swing that first from left to right with the left hand, and as facility is acquired reverse the motion from right to left. More prac tice will be found necessary with te left than the right hand. Both hands EJid arms being rrained, next take a two gallon pitcher full of water in each hand and make the movement with both simultaneously, being careful that the rapidly revolving pitchers shall not touch. The vessels must cross each oth er's orbits at different angles. This is a most developing exercise to arms, neck and back, and when perfect in the exercise it will be; possible to per form the neat little centrifugal experi ment of the whirling of an open can of milk around the head without spilling a drop. Three montha-cf this simple ex ercise will perfect the arms of even a delicate woman most beautifully and increase her physical strength to a point where she may without effort control her entire household. A husband who sees his wife whirling four gallons around her head with the grace and lightness of a butterfly upon tho wing will hesitate about differing wit h her in mere matters cf opinion. New Orleans Times. Will She? Will the sweet girl graduate cf this year openly patronize her parents? (Jf course they are comparatively uncul tured people, but if she realizes ho-v useful they are in a financial way she probably will not.

If s he knew how grateful he would be to her far abstaining from, so doing, the prob ably would abstain. Will she roll up her sleeves and help her dear old mother wash dn.hos? Most certainly nor ! Why not? Because the sweet girl graduate lias lovely white hands and arms, and even when slio wear.; sleeves alio does not care to wash dishes. Will she make a bonfire of her hoc. It a in the exuberance of ht r joy, or will she sell them to the next class f or much and give it to tho poor soda water man? Will sh-'- write to each girl in tho class during tho summer, as she prom ised? Probably not, and, if she does, think what a sweet surprise those epis tles will be to most of the- girls! Will she try to sr.il a boat unaided, or to swim in unknown w ater, cr to ride unfamiliar hor-o-s in the com--o of the summer? Dou'oil-'ss. Why shouldn't she?

Mrs. Dandridge, the only surviving daughter of Zachary Taylor, lias recent ly been visiting Washington. While General Tavlor was president she mar ried Colonel Bliss, his chief cf staff. She presided in tho White House and was generally known as "pretty Betty Clis Some time after the death of Colonel Bliss she married Philip Pen dleton Dandridge of Winchester, Ya. , a place which was often the scene of hos tile encountc rs during the war. In spite of the fact that her whilom brother-in-law was president of tho southern Confederacy, and her brother, General Dick Taylor, in activo service at tho head of his command, Mrs. Dan dridge was never molested or in any way disturbed. Many of the Union offi cers had served under her father. Many had followed him to Mexico 20 years before. Some of them had t aid their devoirs to the fair daughters and re membered "pretty Betty" with warm admiration. It is said that cue of tho Federal commanders in Winchester, passing her house, remarked: "My eld sweetheart, Betty Bliss, lives here. I must call upon her at once." He lost no time in doing so. The officers of the old army invariably paid their respects to Mrs. Dandridge. Although ardently southern in her feel ings and sympathies, she always re ceived them with the most gracious courtesy. Since then, exec-pi an occa sional European tour, Mrs. Dandridge has been living quiatiy at Ler home in Virginia. She is the only surviving child of the hero of Buena Vista and is etill a charming woman. Washington Post. The Daughter scd the Dames. There is tremendous rivalry between the two organizations of women known as tho Daughters of the Revolution and the Colonial Dames. It is based upon antiquity of lineage, as to be a Dame takes a few more ancestors than it does to be a Daughter. Not lot g ago at a woman's club reception a stranger from the west asked to be presented to any Daughters who might happen to be present. Some one, who was ignorant of the nico distinction between the two orders, forthwith introduced her to a woman who, at the word Daughter, drew herself up haughtily mid ex- - S.f? v-rrv. vA w x-TAt--- 5v . jt nam FOR HOME AND VISITING. TTie sown on the rifrht is of ivory camel's li;iir, trimmed on bertha and skirt by Hack jetted passementerie. Tlie figure at the L-I't represents a white eliina silk and lace moniiiis gown, richly trimmed with lace and blue ribbons. The child's frock ia of dark blue surah, with white hand embroider-. claimed: "You have made a mistake. 1 am a Coloui il Dame!" The intention was so evident that the plucky westerner at once replied: "You will be good enough to understand that I ci; . bo a DauiC, too, if I wished. My li.. ..ago is quite long enough. " This incident serves to show the amiable at titude of tiio Dames. On the other hand, the Daughters claim that their order is much more honorable, inasmuch as Dameship does not determine one's ancestors to have been patriots or torics, while the de scendant of a Revolutionary hero is stamped with an inalienable loyalty. It is umpuc stiouably true that if merit of lineage counts for more than mere length then the Daughters have the upper hand. Moreover, the objects of organ izalion among the Dames are pure ly social, and social among themselves. Tho Daughters aim to help each other in many material v." ays. New York Re corder. Ivitc-hcn lit t use. One ef the things houix keepers End dlfiieult at this season is the disposal of kitchen refuse. Tiio caution is empha sized at least to keep it dry. The change which takes place when water is mixed with food waste is very different from that whic h it undergoes when kept dry. The one is putrefaction dangerous, capable cf causing ilineoS if its gases are breathed by msccptible systems. The other is uatarc'a mode of disposing of all thing.-? f earth a true decom position, or nitrification, a process of give and take worked out by living or ganisms. If the refuse pail is left in the open air and all liquid kept out, practically no harm can be done, but the heat and steam of the kitchen accelerate putre faction. The penetrating power of steam, greater than that of dry heat, goes deeper into tho refuse pail than is realized. A handful of earth should bo a house keeper's ever ready sanitary aid, especi ally in city houses. Taken from the surface in any back yard, it will be teeming with invisible life, ready to perform specific functions and reduce all to its own kind, earth or dust. Whether in earthworms or bacteria they serve as agents of sanitation and avert danger of rising gases as well as defeat ing those pestilential scavengers flies. A c-overiag of earth is a cleaner lid than ever tinsmith made. New York Times. S'le's a True Heroine. One of the missionary heroines of the world is Miss Annie Taylor, a Presby terian missionary to Tibet. W'ealthy and cultivated, she decided in spite of the opposition of her parents to give herself to missions. She studied medi cine and worked as a nurse in a hospital to prepare herself for the work. She also acquired a knowledge of dentistry. Largely at her own expense she went to China, assumed native costume, sctth 1 on the borders of Tibet and began to learn the language of that fierce people among whom Christian missionaries have not yet obtained a foothold. Having thoroughly prepared herself, she made an entrance into the country, and there she has lived for some time. She has been exposed to the most terri ble dangers, but the people of Tibet have spared a woman where they would not have sprtred a man. The chief sev eral times tried to poison her. She was made a prisoner. She was exposed, un protected, to rain and snow and intense cold, sometimes sleeping at night in a hole dug in the ground, and yet through thousands of dangers, through famine and death and what was worse than death, she was safely carried and has re turned to tell us wonderful things of that dark nation and to make ready a force that shall take Tibet for Christ.

After the visiter had spent one morning at the breakfast ta ble the country uncle said: . "Dear cousin, don't you think your family will miss you painfrlly?

He stopped cn tho corner till a street car came along and stepped aboard. The car was full, and several people were standing. He took hold of a strap and looked over tho crowd and saw that several women were standing, while a number of men were occupying comfort able scats. - It riled him to see it, and when his eyes fell upon a palefaced little woman holding onto a strap, while a large, lazy looking man sat near by, he could not remain silent. "See here," said he to the big man, "hero is a lady standing, whilo you have a seat. " "Ye," said the big maD. "Well, don't you think you ought tc give up your seat to this woman, whe has probably been hard at work during tho dav?" "No." "Yon don't?" "1 do not." "Well," said the littlo man as he braocd himself, "I do, and I am going to yank you clean out of this car." He grabbed the big man by the collai and proceeded to drag him off the seat, but was interrupted by the woman, whe grabbed him by tho hair. "Hold cn, " cried the little man. "That's what I'm doing," said the woman. "But I mean let up cn this. What do you mean by attacking me?" "Look a-here, " said the female. "1 didn't ask you to get me a seat. Besides I want you to know that man you have hold of is my husband." The little mau let go of the big man, and the woman let go her hold on the hair, and order was restored, but the little man was quiet until ho reached the end of his route, and when ho left the car he was heard to mutter, "And such is life."
