The only tools necessary far this work are a hammer, small paw, medium-sized chisel, an awl, plane and nails of assorted sizes. With these implements she can do a great deal to ward beautifying an unpretentious home. To make a shoe-holder and seat, as depicted in one of the illustrations, ob tain at a grocery store an ordinary soap box and let this form the end uprijrht box. Get another 'packiny case of the same width but longer, and arrange on top a lid with hing-es so it may lie raised. Use the cover to the upritrht one for two shelves, nail them securely in place and let them be an equal dis tance apart, so they will accommodate shoes and slippers. Fasten these boxes tog-ether securely with screws. Next obtain a board and after rounding- corners oft" screw it fast to the back of the boxes and you will have as a result the frame-work for the seat. The hing-ed lid of the low box will act as a seat, the board with the if 3' I m ""'J'"', '! I','"!''1' 'Jl(ij HA5GISO CA1UNT.T. rounded corners forms the back, while within the box rubbers and heavy boots may be kept, the uprig-ht one holding- line shoes and slippers. After long- experience in domestic up holstery, denim, in its rich assortment of colors, is found to be superior to all other materials. It combines artistic beauty with astonishirg- durability, and is heartily recommended to the amateur cabinet-maker. The tops of the boxes should be cov ered first and tufted. This may be ac complished by spreading- curled hair on the wood and tacking- the material over it and at regular distances apart catch a button to form a tuft. This is done by boring two small holes throng-h the wood side by side, and, having- thread ed the eye of the button with a bit of twine, pass the- string- throug-h the holes and tie the ends tightly together at the under side of the lid. The material is to be tacked all around to the outer edge of the tops with ordinary carpet tacks driven close together. ext upholster the back, placing some curled hair behind the material anil give it a cushioned appearance and in turn drape the sides of the boxes. To do it nicely, shir several yards of the material on a cord and then tack the string fast all around the upper edges of the boxes. Around the top edge of each box and to hide the joint where the covering meets the draping material, fasten a piece of wide gimp with large oval headed upholsterer's tacks driven an even distance apart. This will lend a g-ood finish to complete a charming- and useful piece of furniture. The very attractive hang-ing cabinet shown here is also made of a couple of packing- eases. Two shallow oblong- boxec are need ed, and should be fastened securely tog-ether with screws, the end of one to the side of the other as the drawing shows. Around the top of the upright box a narrow strip of cornice molding, that can be obtained from a carpenter, is to be mitred and fashioned with nails, while the top edge of the other one may be left plain by way of con trast. Two shelves should be arranged- in the upright box and one in the other. The entire inside and outside of the boxes are painted with several suc cessive coats of some good color, light shades being preferable. Or they may be enameled, and when dry arrange a small brass rod at the top of each box from which a curtain may be suspended on rings. Silkoline or an inexpensive silk of an art color will wear nicely for drapery. Along- under the bottoms of the boxes a few hooks can be fastened from which teacups may be hung-, while - A MODEL SHOE BOX. on the top some odd bits of bric-a-brac, if tastefully arranged, will lend great ly to the appearance. This cabinet ought to be securely fastened to the wall with long- screws passing- through the plaster and tak ing firm anchorag-e in the studding This fastening- should be particularly g-ood if the cabinet is to sustain such weight afs a inimbcr of bocks would amount to. J. ilarry Adams, in Chiear 8TS JJeSJtf ' . - - - - FALL STYLES FOR Are Women Deserters? Mary L. Bislaud, in an exhaustive article entitled "Are Women Desert ers?" discusses the light housekeeping arrangements that so many women ars entering into, iliss Bisland says: "The average American business man begins life with the expectation of work in uninterruptedly till old age entitles him to honorable retirement. Marriage implies greater effort and steadier ap plication, and invalidism alone war rants any evasion of duty. Why should it not be so with women? Every girl knows that with the wedding ring she assumes many exacting obligations, chief among them the building up and preserving a successful, happy heme. Nothing but dc-ath or the most serious ill health can absolve her from the per formance of her part of the contract. If servants are aggravating and the details wearing, she has no more to bear than her husband iii his office. He encounters down town dragons every day, and in order to keep his family properly cared for he must, meet and overcome them. Her lot is no harder than his, and the wife and mother who without good causo exchanges heavy and honest for light and fraudulent housekeeping is little belter than a traitor and a desert er. " The Vaterlaml Frauenvercin. A socict organized by German wom en is tho Vaterlaud Frauenverein, now numbering over 100,000 members. There are seven smaller similar societies, all with the same objects, which are: ( 1) To found creches and orphan asy lums; (2) to work in sewing schools, Sunday schools and similar institutions; (3) to help the deaf and dumb, blind and mentally deficient; (4) to assist in promoting homes for servants and worlc girls; (5) to succor those rendered desti tute by floods and fires; 6) to start and maintain toup kitchens and dinners for the poor; (7) to bestow Christmas gifts on the poor; (8) to care for patients at the lying in hospitals; (9) to find em ployment for old and invalid women and all out of work; (10) to found li .V.I braries for tho working classes; (11) support the families of invalids, soldiers and militia. Turned the Century Mark. Mrs. Lydia Caldwell Mulock, one of the most interest ilia: persons in this city, recently celebrated the one hundredth anniversary of her birth. She was bom in the town of Minnisink, Orange coun ty, Aug. 28, 1794, and the home of her son-in-law, Elisha R. Harding, in this city, where the old lady lives, was mad'; a very happy place by the presence ol many friends and descendants, who came there to tender their congratula tions to the centenarian. Mrs. Muloek's parents were Ashbell Caldwell and Silvia Stevens, who came to this country from England before the Revolution, settling first iu Massachu setts and later in Orango county. Her mother died at the age of 9-i. In the family there were a number of other children, but only two reached middle age. Middletown (N. Y. ) Dispatch. Woman's Equality With Mao. Woman should stand on a perfect equality with man in every sphere of intellectual endeavor, writes J. Mc Donald Osley in an article on "Post graduate Courses For Women" in The Ladies' Home Journal. No barriers should be placed in her path. Whether the ballot be woman's right or not, the privilege of postgraduate study unques tionably is, and neither she nor those who sympathize with her must be con tent until this is opened to her in the fullest degree. By way of conclusion a good way of bringing this about may be suggested: Iefc it be a condition of fu ture bequests or donations to the univer sities that they admit women to their postgraduate courses. Javanese Cloth. Javanese cloth is a new cotton fabric for drapery and hangings, the beauty of which certain artists have discovered. To the untutored mind it is a common stuff, inclining most frequently to an indigo or warm brown, with queer free hand designs straggling over it. It is made by hand in varying lengths of from two to three yards and more than a yard wide. These cloths are used by the Javanese, according to their sizes, for headdresses or skirts. By the uniuti ated American it is proposed that they be used for table covers, etc. New York Post. Illinois A(lrQciag, The Republicans nominated a woman for trustee of the University of Illinois. Tho Democrats did the same. The Pro hibitionists nominated two. It is almost certain that there will be one woman elected. There may be three. The great it ate cf Illinois will not long deny equal YOUNG MAIDENS. rights to women. There are too many men in all parties who are demanding that sho be recognized for her to bo de prived of her just rights for many more years. Eureka (Ills. J News. The Daushters and the Dames. A woman who thoroughly under stands the workings of both societies tho Colonial Dames and the Daughters of tho American Revolution says em phatically that there is no antagonism l)3tweeii them. They arc managed on different lines, that is all. The Dames try to keep their ranks very exclusive, while the Daughters eagerly welcome any woman with a just claim to mem bership. Women Life Saver. The Buffalo News says that a crew of women life tavers has been organized in that city by Admiral Edwin D. Ayres of the State Volunteer Life Saving corps, and thc-y will soon be equipped and ready for work. They are all gopd swimmers and good at the oars. TheSr names are Mrs. Ada B. iicCuo, Annio Bowen, Mrs. Layman, Josie Bowen and Kitty Andrews. What is called tho rational cycling costume for women is in danger of go i::g out of existence in Paris, for the prefect has caused letters to be written to some well known women cyclists, cautioning them that they are infring ing the law in wearing men's clothes. The latest fad of Parisian eccentric ity is that pet dogs iu Paris are now dyed to harmonize with the prevailing tint of their mistresses' boudoir. Two shades of violet are now the most popu lar coloring for white dogs. A rational dress association has been formed evv Zealand. Its object is to be "tho bringing about of that change iu woman's dress which her wider life and increased activity seem to demand. " Three young Turkish women have re cently arrived in France in order to go through a regular course of medical :raimng at French universities. One of them is the daughter of a pasha.
