There are really very few women who can distinguish between a giwi black silk and an inferior one, and a few hints given by an expert and re ported in the Delineator will doubtlesa be acceptable to many shoppers: In the first place never be beguiled into buying1 cheap silk. Very often a pretext of its cheapness suggests a genuine bargain, but the wise woman, unless she knows of good reason for the reduction, will choose some other ma terial if she cannot alford to purchase silk at an adequate price. Costliness is of course no guarantee of real value, so the shopper is advised to purchase an eighth of a yard of an admired fabric and test it at leisure when she reaches home. This may seem like a waste to the over-economical mind, but it will prove a good investment if it prevents a bad bargain in the end. In testing a piece of silk first try to tear it both lengthwise and crosswise. If it gives.way readily in either direc tion you may be sure either that the dye has destroyed the fibers or that the thread is made up of what is kDOwn as "waste silk." Pure silk properly dyed is the strongest textile known, but nearly all the cheaper dyes, and par ticularly the dark colors and black, are made with such a basis that they eat into and weaken the fabric. The firmness of the weave may be proved by scraping diagonally across the silk with the thumb nail. If the material is strong and pure, any amount of manipulation will not make the threads slip, and if the nail makes a space as wide as its own thickness be tween the threads the silk is certainly of inferior quality. The next test is ap plied by raveling a bit of the silk and carefully examining both warp and woof. Often a pure silk warp has a heavily loaded woof, and in other cases, especially in satin weaves, the woof has an inferior backing, the sur face being of good silk. Pure silk lias a good luster and is very soft, but if the gloss is artificial the fabric will bo hard and brittle. When a pure silk has been dyed improperly it looks very much like cotton, but it is somewhat softer. Another excellent test consists in pulling out the threads both ways and trying their strength. Catch them with both hands an inch apart, give a quick jerk and note the force needed to break them. If they part easily the silk is not good. Tear the silk along the lines from which the threads have been taken, and if there are puckers along the tear they may be regarded us indi cating a strong texture. A method of testing that is considered conclusive is to burn a fragment of the silk and also some of the ravelings. If the silk is pure and well dyed it will take tire slowly, even when held directly in the flame, and the fire will go out almost as soon as the silk is withdrawn, leav ing ashes that are nearly jet black. Weighted and improperly dyed silk i highly inflammable. It quickly takes fire, and the fire is diiticult to extin guish, smoldering after the silk is re moved from the flame and leaving ashes that keep the shape of the cloth end are of a light yellowish red tint. Cotton in the fabric can be readily de tected by the odor of the smoke. Ev ery woman should remember that the requisite qualities of good silk are strength, smoothness, luster, richness and lightness, no matter how thick the material. STAND FOR CUT FLOWERS. How to Make Oae That Is Ornamental and Vet K"ot Expensive. A loose bunch of cut flowers in a dainty bowl or vase is in harmony with almost any surroundings or setting; but such a bowl or vase of flower clus ters nowhere appears to better advan tage than on some light and graceful stand just large enough for this pur pose. Such a stand need not be expen sive to be ornamental. The illustra tion shows one that can easily be made at home. Three legs of bamboo are crossed and screwed to a ball as shown. The upper ends are inserted in a bit of square pine board one foot square is a good size. All that remains to be done is to cover this top with some delicate bit of washing silk and to fasten some of the same material down about the sides. The design given in the cut may be followed to ad vantage, or one's taste and ingenuity may be given the chance to fashion a different arrangement of the silk. In any case a finish of silk balls may well be added to the lower edge, when the whole should be pretty enough for even the daintiest of flowers to rest tspon. American Gardening. Annonnrtne Baby's Birth. To announce the birth of a baby the visiting card of the mother should be sent to relatives and friends, with the tiny card of the infant attached by narrow white ribbon to the upper left hand corner. In the pest the name of tire child was engraved upon the card, but later form dictates simply: "A Lit tle Son" or "Daughter," with the date of birth added. This leaves the name with opportunity of change until christening. War firm O'clock Tea.

How He Stopped It. A bachelor is not usually accredited with much knowledge about the proper treatment of children, but sometimes they step in where angels that is, the mothers j of the children fear to tread. A well I known man about town, who is pretty : well on in years and not very fond of j children, stopped in to sec a married sister tne otner nay ana louna tier trying to amuse her little boy, about 5 years. Xot long after he arrived, she stepped out of the room to attend to some household mat ter or other, leaving him alone with tho child. The latter eyed him dubiously for som minutes. He was a spoiled child if ever there was one and had no idea of making promiscuous acquaintances. The bachelor tried to make the little one laugh, but all ho go for his antics was a sour lcok. Finally, without any warning, the child burst out crying. Hero was a quandary to be sure. lie didn't dare to pick tho boy up and soothe him. His at tempts in the verbal line were dismal fail ures. What should ho dor Finally a thought struck him. He looked at the crying youngster, aud the crying youngster looked at him through his tears. He was evidently much pleased with the impres sion ho was making. '"Cry louder," said he. The child obeyed. "Louder yet," urged the bachelor. A yell went up that would have done credit to an Indian. "Cry louder still," insisted the man, and the boy did his best to obey. "Louder," fairly howled his uncle. "I won't," snapped the infant, and ho shut his mouth with a click and was quiet for tho rest of the day. Philadelphia .Press. Personally Conducted. Entertainer We are now, my friends, about to pay a visit to Niagara falls. We shall gaze in rapture on this world re nowned cataract. We shall see its mad dened waters, gathering strength and fury as they approach the fearful brink, dash wildly over the precipice into the boiling depths below. Our entranced vision shall dwell upon the thrilling spectacle, and as we gazo spellbound at the majestic splen dors of this matchless scene we shall listen to the thunder of Niagara's awful voice. In its deep diapason nature shall convey to our souls through the external organs of hearing her inmost harmonies and speak to us in the language of music the music of the spheres, the symphony of the universe, immortal, untaught, with a past reaching back to the radiant morn when creation awoke from chaos and a future stretching forward to the limitless ages of eternity.

A young man clad according to the lat est style was counting over some bills as he stepped from the oflice door to the street. 'Excuse me, my friend," said a citizen with a bad looking silk hat and only 0110 button of his frock coat in active service. "Have you ever given any attention to the science of bacteriology?" "Not much." '"Then it has probably never occurred to you that your money has bacilli on it." "Bacilli!" repeated the gilded product of a frivolous decade. 'Yes, sir." "Well, that may be. But there are no flies 011 it." Detroit Freo Press. A Matter of Ioubt. "Maria, " lie said thoughtfully, "I want to ask you something." What is it?" "Do you think that you'll ever have a vote?" "I do, assuredly." "If you get one and I run for office, will you cast it for me?" She was thoughtful for some time; then she said: "Hiram, I can't say yet, not till our debating society has passed on tho ques tion whether a woman's first duty is to her fireside or her country. " Washington Star. Very Much Taken. The crowd at the fair were going to have their pictures taken in a group as a souve nir, and tho pretty girl, who had ben making eyes at the tall young man, smiled up at him and said softly: "I want to be taken with you." He loolsed down into her eyes ineffably. "I am already taken with you," he murmured, and she liked to have had a conniption fit right there. Detroit Free Press. Enough to Support.
