"Oil, MY TIBED BACK!" You Can Stroreihsa It by Simpla Home Exercises. A. Fyt-m Which Ii Far Mom Effective Xlian th Swallowing of MedicLnM tvery and OLrl SUoold Practtoalt. The back has twenty-six seperat bones, so strung1 toe-ether tliat they have very little individual movement: but what little they have ought to be carefully preserve J, if we would be capable, graceful and easy. Children have cine more separata bor.es: theso bocom-j joined into two, to form the lid buck wall of the pelvis that bony basin which holds our deli cate abdominal organs. There would be no muscular hade aches if we had kep t childhood's move ment of the back. There are no superfluous muscles in the human body, and sooner or later those which have been deceased to de-g-eneraey will ba called Into action. Then, naturally, they will either fail utterly to respond to the call, or they will act beyond their streng-th and suf fr for it. Thereupon somebody who has mora uneducated sympathy than knowledge, says: "Eest your back if it makea it ache to use it." Somebody else says: 'Support it with corsets or bracea. HACK E-TIRCieia. T5v t you listen to hear a still small roi Rayia;?: "Thou fool! This day shall thy back be required of thee!" To completely ruin the muacleaof tis back prop them up. making' your form as unnatural as possible. Hard labor of one kind or another is inevitable to mostof us. Uut our nerves and muscles oug-ht to be, and can be, kept in order and repair by gymnastics. ?Ien, women and children should exer cise every day as vigorously as the ani mals in the forest. Suppose you are a sewing- woman, Mil sit from early morning1 unt il late at night, moving your feet, and in a. bent position. You should not wonder that your back aches! You s'iow this in your round shoulders. fat chest and sallow eo;nple-xion. '"Met Jcine" will not help you. You must either stop sewing or lorm a gymnastic class, or practice cer tain exercises for yourself. And it is not alw ayn possible for a sewing- woman to stop sewing-. I grive you here simple exercises which require no apparatus: 1. (1) Stand perfectly balanced, heels tog-ether, shoulders back not hijh head up, chin as doable us possible. (?) Hands en hi;s, flap-era forward. Take a long- breat t as t-lowly as possi ble and as slowly evhale with mouth chut. Hepejit ten times. 2. (1) Sacxo position. Heels tog-ether, toes turned out, hi ; firm. (?) Bend head and back slowly back "Ward, keeping- eyes on the ceiling-, and arching- back well and taking- deep in spiration. (3) Bend forward, still looking- at eeiling-, shoulders well back. Repeat -ten times. 3. Ilotate the head slowly. Bend the bend to right and luft. Do it all very lowly and forcibly. 4. Arm upward stretch; keeping themclose to the ears. Forward, down ward bend, until your flng-er tips touch the floor; upward, backward bend, al ways keeping- your head between your arms. Repeat five times. 5. Position, fingers touching shoul ders of the. same tido shoulders well Lack. Xow forcibly extend your arms upward three tines, outward three times, forward three times, out and downward. This is like one of the old dumb-bell exercist-s, but you do not need dumb bells if you will do the movements with It'c. C. Lie flat on your back on the floor and tako long-, de jp inspirations, lirst making- sure that the windows are open and that you are breathing pure air. And, of cours-i, you are not exer cising in your corsets. 2sow, with feet well extended and hips well firm, try to get up without itsing your arms. 7. Lid face down on the floor with your hips iirm and see how far you can raise your head and trunk. 8. March up and down the room, ex tending your arms upward at every fourth step, kecpiag regular martial time. 9. After a week or two you will ba ready for violent exercises. Lio down, face down, hands o a the floor just under your shoulders. Raise your b-jdy on your toes and -rins, keexing your knees and back perfectly straight. Lower your back to the tloor very slowly. Repeat txree times. Housa--wife. Bt the Caramber Peels. In the cxieurnber season, instead of throwing away the peel. and pulp, put them in a jag of water on your toilet table and wash with this infusion. You may also use slices of pulp instead of soap. Cucumber has wonderfully cool ing as well as softening properties. Orange and lemon peel used in the eaine way will keep the water soft and cent it deliciously. Keirti In tha lltmu Body.

A quiet woman, dressed unassuming Jy in brown, was eating her dimit-r in a popular tearoom. Shewtis a regular pa tron and was waited upon generally by the same girl. Today I noticed that she called the pretty little Swedish waitress to her and asked her if she intended taking a vacation. The girl said she did next week. "Here is something to help pay your car faro," said the quiet woman in brown and slipped a bill into the hand of the waitress. I wish you could have seen tho joy unutterable that Carded that girl's fae when she for.nd she held a fo till. She could not believe her tenses. Her eyes filled with tears, and her hand shook. "Why, I never had so much money given me be fore! Do yon suppose she meant it?" And when somebody assured her that it was no mistake the child disappeared, fairly dancing with glee. Now, that is the aort of thing I would enjoy if I were a rich woman, wouldn't you? Do ing unexpected mercies and showing benefits in surprises that should take away one's breath. There are plenty of secondhand clothes and soap ticket charities. Now let cs have the truer charity that comes as the lightning does out of the cloud when no man listethi Chicago Poat. '-Luiij Druainirrs." A neat little woman went tripping up to the register at the Louisville hotel the other night, inscribed "P. M. Bru ner, Dayton, " in a clear, bold hand and left orders to bo aroused in time for the early morning train for Frankfort. Miss Crnner is ona of the few real ffiiwlt drummers on the road. Her work is not of the female book agent kind, but she is regularly employed like any drum mer and draws a salary that is m ich handsomer than many of her male com petitors can boast of. There are of course many female agents flying about the country, but the genuine female drummer is a rarity, at lease in these parts, so the hotel men say. There ar only two who stop at the hotel. One of these made $2,000 la.t yenrfrem salary and cowtuisriioii on all goods sold ever a certain arjount. .Miss Bruner supports a mother in Ohio and is well able to do it, for obe is said to be a hustler of no mean ability. Louisville Couris-r-Journal. SuiTrag-a and tha Horn. The San Antonio (Tex.) Daily Ex press of recent data contained a letter from Elizabeth A. Edwards, an Okla homa lady, remonstrating against the views expressed by Hishop Johnston of Texas in an address before the graduat ing class of St. Mary's Hail, San An tonio. Mrs. Edwards shows that the bishop fails to realize tho position occu pied by women today and tho trend of thought in favor of the equality cf the sexes. She also makes an excellent plea for woman suffrupe in behalf of the home, in which she says: Men do not vote for measures that meet tho approval of wife or mother. They vote to suit themselves, and they themselves are the product, not of the home, but of all the environments tliat lie outside the home. Shall woman not desire the ballot then, that the influence of her pure, moral nature may make it self felt in shaping the conditions that control the destinies of her children? j In riact) of "Wliit Shirts. ! Every woman enjoys the sense of daintiness which a spotless clean white petticoat gives. But not fcvct'y woman cau afford thi.-s luxury. Tho laundry bill which surely stares her in the face is appalling. Less expensive and almost as dainty are the new undergarments of linen dimity. They are ecru in color and made with a deep rufiie tastefully embroidered in dark shades of silk. Skirts of black mohair or morean wear much better than the petticoats of silk. They have much the same effect when made with silk ruffles. Don't make the rufSes of old silk which you may have in the house, loft over from a fcown which has seen better days. There is no economy in it. The rafilt will be come worn Lfr you htr L 1 tus kkirt a week. It pays to buy good silk for this purpose. The Women of CJreat Britain. The English woman suffrage statis tics are in. The total number of signa tures received to the women's suffrage appeal is 248,674. Of these, 50,913 are from Scotland, 6,820 from Ireland, 51, 130 from London, the remainder being distributed throughout England and Wales. The signatures include tho Leads of nearly all the colleges fur wom en, and a large proportion of the head mistresses of high and other public schools for girls, and women serving on the boards of guardians and school boards.

London Correspondent. Faanlt Edgar Itiouiu. The Musical World of Paris has the following complimentary reference to : Miss Fannie Edgar Thomas, wiio went abroad last October in the interest of music: "We have several times quoted from the articles which Miss Fannie Edgar ' Thomas tends to The Musical Courier J of New Y'ork. and this correspondence j Las assumed such importaaca that we j feel obliged to reprcduce it in each issue ; hereafter. Not only has Miss Thomas ! thoroughly explored the realm of muic j al genius in Paris, but this eminent j correspondent has done it in a fashion j so graceful and charming that she has become the intimate friend of our most celebrated artists and has been appoint ed a fixed position here as musical em baesadress.
