ABOUT BLACK SILK.
Bow ta Xiatuiraish m Go4 Arti le frora
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
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
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

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
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. (To assistants) Harris, start the
