TOPEKA STATE JOUHNAL, SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 2, 1900.
13 FOR TlffiVOMEII. Street Fair Has Engrossed At tention This Week. Next AVeek Means Return to Re ceptions and Weddings. USE OF WHITE HAT. It is Popular and Admits of Many Variations. Things of Interest to House keepers and Others. The town has been characterized dur ing the past week by quite a gala ap pearance. There has been little doing In society, and society folk have dressed up in their best and congregated at the street fair during the evenings and the pleasant part of the day. There all the different "crowds" met on an equal footing and enjoyed together the break in the monotony of the spring. The stores, too. jut their best foot to the front in the way of decoration, for tlie windows were all decked with the prettiest articles to be found, while the counters fairly groaned under their weight of pretty things. Affairs are now returning to their normal condition and people are prepar ing for next week's whirl of gaiety, which includes several large receptions and a number of weddings. The Summer Hat The hats shown In the stores for mid summer wear are extremely pretty, the pure white ones seeming to be in the ascendant. Few leghorn hats are seen, the majority of them being chip, fir fancy braids, and are trimmed with fluffy white liberty silk, chiffon or mull. Tiiinmit.g (if this kind may be put on in various ways; it may be tucke:!, pleated, shirred or great rosettes made of it, itiie some are seen with it grace lully draped about the crown and brim. Ho;iit oi these hats are surmounted with a clust"r of pure white chrysanthe mums, which give it the needed height, or sometimes a. single large blossom is seen. l'ure white hats are trying to some people and may be toned with a touch of. hiack (velvet is usually preferred) or a color if desir. d. Some elegant hats are seen trimmed with either black of white ostrich plumes, and with these little else is needed. Flower hats will, of course, be worn to a certain extent but w ill not be as popular as they were last season. The Elegant Petticoat. The woman who drives need not give up her petticoats, and, let fashion take what whim she will, nothing can rival the soft "frou frou" of a satin or sik underskirt, or the delightful daintiness; if wHte cambric and Valenciennes. When we hear a petticoat now. it is of the most elaborate order, and here bro cade is really requisite. The most fan tastic old Watteau brocades, and even satin grounds with floral designs out lined with panne, are utilized for the underskirt, with bright flounces trimmed wiih beautiful lace, caught up with ribbons or held in place with dainty beudings and gofferings. Fads and Fancies. The four-in-hand clasps now to be seen in the stores offer, a wide variety for choice, for bright gilt, silver, highly polished or of the dull oxidized tint. Roman gold and rhinestones all enter Into the composition of these latest devices ror the summer girl, and some f the designs are excecdigly effective. A ciaustor of rhinestones in a silver set ting or the dainty little clasps of oxi dized silver are among the prettiest. Tortoise leather is the name given to a new style covering for pocketbooks w hich exactly resembles highly polished tortoise shell, the variations of color be ing perfectly reproduced. These pocket books come In the medium size with metal clasp that is particularly favored at present. Hair ornaments are as varied as the fancies of their respective wearers, and to the collection of lace and jet wings and butterflies and the odd, jerky little loops and twists of ribbon has been added a cluster of the delicate feathers from the crest of the gout a or crown pigeon of the Papuan archipelago, a spe cies of bird plumage that has been in troduced to some extent in the milli nery of the season. Some of these goura aigrettis are combined with tiny diamonds mounted on slender wires that sway with every motion of the wearer's head and against a background of dark fathefs these tiny brilliants are seen to special advantage. In white these aigrettes are also very handsome and both in this tint and black they are mounted on pins in butterfly or similar designs set with brilliants. Animal charms, some of which are rather weird imitations of the original, are worn by young women who favor the long neck chains of silver or gold which are used as supports for purses, viniagret tea. tiny writing tablets of celluloid and silver and a variety of other trinkets that formerly constituted a part of the chatelaine equipment. Kailler In the season the elephant was the favorite animal charm, but thera have since been added specimens of nearly all the species that inhabited the ark and a few that are not easily rec-uni7.,-d and apparently meed to be la beled. Narrow ties of seed pearls with pend ants on the order of the pretty ties of twisted cord with fringed ends intro duced earlier in the season are among the dainty trifles presented to the view of the shopper these days, and no doubt they v ill be worn by many a summer git'l In conjunction with the white cos tumes that fashion oracles predict are going to. hold complete sway during the next few months. A chatelaine watch enameled to match a pet frock is the fad of some of the particular girls of the day. The new piques appear in the beau tiful pastel shades that prevail in other dress fabrics and the tones of blue, old rose, brown, tan and pink are extremely pretty. .Newer man tne pearl curr buttons ror wash waists are the crocheted cuff links. The white ones are of cotton and will wash with the waists. There are others in black and colors of silk. The silky effect added to the great variety of mulls. batistes.canvas fabrics. zej.nyrs .organdies, and other summer fabrics renders them more than ever desirable and attractive. Many of the cotton materials thus treated, either in plain or fancy patterns, have all the lustrous and dainty effect of an India auk or satin foulard. A Novel Party. , New ideas for parties are most wel come In these days, when we are all craving for novelties that are not to be bad. Book teas have become suburban, flower teas have had their day, there fore the pretty suggestion made by Sir Kdwin Arnold should be hailed with de light by fanciful hostesses, and some pretty conceits should await us in the lovely spring afternoons, when we all like to surround ourselves with all that is prettiest and daintiest.. The idea of the author of "The Light of Asia" comes from the land of the almond blossom. It is full of possibili ties, and has a deliciously Oriental touch about it; for he proposes that hostesses should adopt the Ko-Kwai, or perfume party of Japan. One doubts if western folk are imaginative and simple enough to carry it out complete ly. The surroundings, in the first place, must be delicate and the hostess daint ily clad. All the guests must come fresh from their bath, in their newest and prettiest clothes: they must have eaten no food and drunk no wines or spirits of late; neither must the men exhale the odor of even the mildest cigarette, and each must lay before the hostess a perfumed sachet, the partic ular odor of which the others must de termine, a prize being given to the one who guesses the most correctly. It is to be feared the western man would not be much in evidence at these parties. It would have to be a hostess of rare beauty or charm who could in duce all the men of her acquaintance to forego, smoking for practically a whole day, and live on crystalized violets and ice wafers in order to have the privilege of laying sachet at her feet and courting a headache in an atmosphere of musk and lotus and patchouli. However, new Ideas are so scarce that the Ko-Kwai is sure to be tried. It remains, to be seen what we make of it in the west. Chicago News. National Suffrage Bazaar. The National American Woman Suf frage association is making prepara tions for a grand suffrage bazaar, to be held in Madison Square Garden, New York, opening Monday, December 3, and continuing throughout the w-eek. Some kind of an entertainment will be provided each evening, but it is expect ed that the chief attraction will be the sales. It is the intention to have a great variety of articles and in quali ties to supply all kinds of purchasers for the whole six days. The object is to secure a large fund for doing national work and it is de sired that the suffragists in all states in the Union shall contribute their time and talent to this common effort and when the receipts have been secured ev ery state through its representative in the national convention, shall have a vote as to how the money shall be spent. Madison Square Garden is one of the best known buildings in New York city. The famous horse fair has been held there for a number of years. No build ing in the United States could be better adapted to the use of a bazaar. Every conceivable kind of useful and ornamental article, from potatoes or a dish-rag to beautiful works of art will be gladly accepted. In fact, the man agement announces that if there is any thing from a siik dress to a house and lot which any one is willing to contri bute, or anyone wishes to purchases to let them know.

A Progressive Western Club. According to reports the Ladies' Im provement Club of Healdsbuc, Cal., al though it has only been in existence since August, lias accomplished enough in its seven months' existence to make some of the members of municipal im provement organizations in this sec tion of the country hold their breaths with astonishment. The men had for years been considering the improve ments which the women succeeded in having introduced. And this is the list: A municipal water system, a municipal electric light plant, comfort able seats placed in the plaza, tnmes given to streets, sign boards with street names placed at street corners, a drink ing fountain for the plaza costing $600. With the exception of the electric light plant and the water system the city taxes have not been increased to pay for these improvements. The drinking fountain which has been planned will be iifteen feet high, sur mounted by a cluster of electric lamps. It will be made of marble, granite and bronze and on the foundation stone will appear this inscription: "Erected, 1900, by the Ladies of Healdsburg." The placing of shade trees, numbering of houses, regular sweeping and sprinkling of the streets and the securing of new apparatus for the fire department are additional improvements which this en ergetic club has in contemplation. The Land of the Teapot. Anybody in want of teapots should go to Japan. An Englishwoman, an artist, during a sojourn in that country, says Woman's Life, made a collection of more than a thousand specimens, no two of them alike. Some of the teapots are real curiosi ties. One huge, cauldron-like affair holds three gallons, while at least a dozen specimens are so small that a thimbleful would cause them to over flow. There are pots in the shape of birds, beasts and fowls. Fishes and frogs have lent their forms to some, and there is a beetle to be seen in the collection, as well as a fat squirming eel. Buddah himself has been pressed into service as a mode!. Swans, correct to the last curve of neck and feathers, form tea pots so small that they can be hidden in the palm of the hand. There are lotus-bud pots, and others in the form of a tea house. All materials are included in the col lection. Inlaid silver, hammered cop per, iron exquisitely wrought, and all the different kinds of Japanese pottery have been used in the manufacture of tea pots. The Care of the Hands. By Mme. Michaud Thousands of women who moved the first of May are complaining because their bands are rough and bruised and unsight ly. One week's abuse will do damage that can not be repaired in a month, and it is no wonder that the careful housewife who has "settled" her new home com plains, now that she has time to notice her broken finger nails and her calloused palms. The first thing necessary is to procure a pair of old white kid gloves the ones that have done their last service at Frock With Girdle. opera and theater to wear at nights after a cream or ointment has been applied. Soak the hands in warm water in which buttermilk soap and borax have been dis solved. Bathe until the skin about the nails is softened, and then get out the manicure instruments. Gently loosen the delicate rim of skin around the little half moon at the base of the nail, using the blunt ivory Instruments made for the pur pose. Then gently rile the nails until they are oval in shape and until every rough ness is removed. Always file from the side toward the center, and avoid the use of the scissors as much as possible, as the cutting often bruises the nails and makes the little white spots that are so ugly. The shapping of the nail Is most important, and when the proper outline has been attained a little filing every day will make any tedious paring unneces sary. The ugly fashion of having the nails sharply pointed and very long has passed, and it should be the aim to fol low the outline of the finger tips as much as possible, allowing only the slightest rim of nail to project. After the tilings, smooth the ragged edges with the sand paper files, which prevent the splitting and breaking that is so annoying. Stains can be removed by the acids sold for the purpose, but a mixture of equal parts lemon juice and rosewater will be foundquite as good as any of the prepara tions on the market. Dip an orange wood stick into this acid and carefully follow rne nan, cleansing an me sKin surround ing it and running the stick beneath the edge so that every particle of dust is taken out. Soak the hands again after reaching this stage in the manicuring pro cess, and then snip off any hang-nails that may be visible, being careful not 'to cut away any of the cuticle at the base of tne nan. The tinting nrocess comes next. Just the slightest touch of the red paste should De ruDDed on each nan with the tip of the finger, and then the buffer, upon which a little powder has been nlaced. should be used for the polishing. The day of the glassy nail has gone by, and the weii-Kept nana ones not uazzie one by the luster of the nails. After each nail has been polished separately, the hands should be again rinsed, as the nails will not look nat-ral with traces of rjowder and pink paste upon them. Having restored the nails as far as pos sible, the next thing is to apply soothing -l.lHl UUll JOllOIIS. A good preparation that softens the hands is made as follows: Soak one-half pound of oatmeal over night in a aiinrt of warm water, strain, and add one table- spoonful of lemon juite and one teaspoon ful each of olive oil, rosewater, cologne and glycerin. Almond meal should be kept on the dressing table and used when the hands are washed. A preparation of four ounces of linseed oil, eight ounces of rosewater, and one-fourth ounce tincture of benzoin is good for increasing the tiesh, and should be tried by those who are anxious to have plump hands. Cosmetic jelly is indispensable to the women who take systematic care of their hands. Jt is rather difficult to make, but will be satisfactory after i', has been compounded. The formula is as follows: "Soak thirty grains of gum of tragacanth in seven ounces of rosewater. When it is thoroughly dissolved, strain through mus lin and add once-half ounce of glycerin and one-half ounce of alcohol. In the south, where the women are very proud of having hands that look as if they never had been employed for work, much dependence is placed upon mutton tallow compounds. The following is one of the favorite bleaches: Yolk of one egg, one and three-quarters drachms of gly cerin, one and three-quarters drachms of borax, well mixed. Anoint the hands at night and wear glomes. It should be re membered that the prescriptions good for one person may not be healing to another. Some find the glycerin mixtures best, and others like the creams in which olive oil or mutton taiiow is the ba.se. It is well to experiment until just the right, oint ment has been found.

Pulled fish is easily prepared, and is as good as a fillet of fish. The fish should be perfectly fresh, and be pulled as soon as it comes from the market. To pull a bass, cut off the head and tail, and with a sharp knife slip the meat near the head at the back bone. Press in the back-bone with one hand, and take the fish on the upper side with the other, and strip to the tail; turn it over, and do the same on the other side, leaving the bone entirely clean. The fish is then seasoned, dipped into egg. and then in bread-crumbs or cracker dust, and plunged into smoking hot fat. It conies out rolled up, and should be drained on butcher's paper be fore being sent to the table, garnished with watercress. KGG SALAD. Remove the shell from six cold, hard boiled eggs, cut in halves lengthwise: take out the yolks: mah fine, season them with an eighth of a teaspoon of mustard, quarter of a teaspoon suit and a dash of red pepper: add just enough cream to make a smooth paste (aoout two tanie spoons of cream are generally enoughl: put back into the halves of the eggs and arrange on a bed of crisp lettuce leaves. Make a boiled dressing of eight table spoons of vinegar, four of hot water, quarter of a teaspon niustard, half a teaspoon each of salt and flour and om egg. Boil until thick: then pour over the eggs and serve at once. LEMON JELLY. Soak half a box of gelatine in one-halt cupful of cold water until it is dissolved; put a. pint of cold water in a sauoennn. add the thin yellow outside rind of three lemons and one cupful of sugar, and boil together five minutes; draw to the back of the stove, add the dissolved gelatine and strain. When half cooled add the strained juice of the lemons, pour into a mold or small cups and stand in a cold place to become firm. TO USE FRUIT JUICE. The juice from a can of fruit if not needed when the fruit is served, may be used later as a foundation for a jelly. If the syrup is as rich as it should be it will stand an equal amount of water. When thus diluted it is sweetened to taste, and used with dissolved gelatine in the pro portion of little over a half a box to every quart. Pear syrup is improved by heating with a bit of ginger root, and peach syrup has a better tlavor if a few blanched al monds iire thrown in. These need not be taken out when the jelly is strained. Of ten the fruit from a can is used for pud ding, fritters, or with whipped cream, and tlie juice is left unutilized: Even a very little o it left over should never be thrown awav. If sandwiches are to be prepared for school children, fruit juice will be found very useful iu moistening any sort of sweet filling. Things Worth Knowing. To Clean Tin Covers Take half a pound of soap, a ball of pounded whiting and enough warm water to make it of the consistency of cream. Shred the soap into a jug. add the pounded whiting and mix with warm water. Rub it well over the covers. 'and when dry polish them with a clean leather and dry jnjwder whiting. To Remove Tar Marks Rub the marks immediately with clean lard, and then wash with warm water and soap. To Remove Iron Mould Stretch the ar ticle over a boaui so that it will lie fiat. Cover the affected spot with salt and squeeze on lemon juice till a sort of paste is formed. Of course, a subsequent thor ough rinsing is necessary. Cream of tar tar will also remove the stain if a small quantity be tied into the stained part and boiled in clear water. To Remove Mildew Spots Moisten the mildewed spot with clear water, then rub over it a thick coating of Castile soap. Scrape chalk with the soap, mixing and rubbing with the tips of the fingers. Bleach in the sun. then wah it off. Sometimes one coating suffices, but occasionally sev eral are required. To clean marble washstands take two ounces of washing soda, one of powdered pumiee-stone. and one of powdered chalk. Pound tog-ether and then pass through a sieve. Take some of the powder and make it into a paste with cold water, rub it well over the surface of the marble, and, when Sale of Unclaimed Freight by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Co.

AUNT TRUDY'S REVELATIONS LamentsBecause They Always Nearly Come Last and Too Late. - Button Rose Cottage, June 2, 1900. Dear Suite Journal: I have hurd of the whol' earth a-bein' kaos once, an' I believ' it, seein's there's a right smart lot of things sort of tum bled up yet. an we darrent meddle with 'em much either.

Ther wer' lots more frenologic jurnals an' charts, in our library than Bibles and noospapers. Now, we tak' the Slate Journal every day, brim ful of the noos of the whol' earth, an our family's heds is filled with noledge. Then the fre nologic paper only filled empty heds with mystries of bumps, an' it mattered not how empty the hed if it had well-balanced lookin' bumps. "Weli. the big lecterers on frenology an' fizzyogomy alius stopt at our hous'. an' me an' William Lloyd Garrison, my little bruther, had to be their samples. Ours wus the newest heds, of cours. and our comin carracter interestin'. An' then the lecterers could more freely discorse on our bumps, seein' we hadn't proved 'em yet. Well, I thot the whole study of life wus heds. and heds only forever. An" it wus worst on me. My little brother he haxl a "magnificent" hed. (I lurned that big wurd very urly), an' I wus the kon- trast. I soon got to hatin' myself, an' I almost hated God for lettin' me be born. I thot it all over in my own hart, every day. an' I had that fear I should be a idiut, I jes wanted to hide away from them all. I almos' worshipt my bruther an' his pretty hed. I couldn't bear to look in the lookin' glass. I felt like my hed was a slantin' back, an that I never could be brite. Nobody new my thots. Mother often had to punish me to get me to go to play partys. or to visut, an' at las' when the big lecturers com', I would hide in the celler, an' cry my eys sore. The hob gobblers of my "life were them frenolo gists with their long pressin' fingers. In short, I was fas' becomin' a dwarf an' a marter. when we moved out west, onto sech a big farm we sort a forgot about heds: an' I was a gettin' well, an' jes' a climbin' right along in skule, an' begin nin' to lum I could lurn. "One day I nearly faint'd in my tracks when I went into the skule rume to see our teener a-feelin' of the bumps on the scholar's heds for fun! I seemed to be takin' a chill, buL he colled me. an' began to go over the bumps like a lecterer. Then I had a genooine surpris. He said: "Tres sy. you'll make the best Methodis here." I wus glad a girl ast him what he ment. "She's the most methi cle of you all." O dear! that wus jes' lik' liftin' a stone off a litl' tree!

"1 think my happinus mus' have made my fac' over befor' I got home! for when I went strate to the lookin' glas' to see wher' that Methodis' bump was located, I wus agen surprised that I wus not as homelv as mud after all. Then I got the dicshunary an' studied that word method icle. It really was a good bump. "Well. Trudy. I began then an' there to cultivat' that bump an' kep' on. an' kep' on. until I came to myself suddenly after 25 yeers, to fin' I'd run it into the groun'i You see 1 1 had the whole veer cut an' dried before it came to pass! I had every 'our. of every day, set apart to its own speshel duty, yere in an' out. I couldn't bare any time to go to waste, an' I lef no margins. One dooty fitted square up to anothur all the weak thro'. It was all fine so long's nuthln' happened. You see if I had only known when things would happ'n, I could have given them a booth, like they do at tne lares. l couldn't for the llf of me plan to soot sicknus an' callers, an' when these inter- rupshuns cum. I was nigh about dis trackted. I couldn't bare to have my plans spoilt, an' I wus gettin' so cros' an' nerv'us. you never saw my equel! One day Edward cum an' look't down at mi hard, an' took my wizzened up face in his han's, an' sed: 'You got to go away an' rest. That frown's gettin' deeper every day. You ust to be sweet an' comforttn', an' make me rested to see you." Ah: that was anuther revelation! only if it hadn't come in the very last chapters of his life, that I might a-known befor' that he would sooner have me sweet an' com-f fortin' an' gentle. If I'd only a-known that, I'd a-planned to take the disturb ences easy, as a part of the make-up of life an' to mak' it sweeter!" It is sad that Revelashuns are alius the last chapters! I wish young people could lurn an' use the revela.shuns that come to other people. I am glad Aunt Tressy tol' me her storv. I will now teach my nef foos an' neeses that they all have some good bumps, some winnin' way. Also that smartness isn't in bumps you can't change, but in the psirit which you can change by the will. That the will is the vital pivvet, on which the sperit swings itself either to the right han' or the lef han'. an' that life after all. will be what we make it ourseifss. Sincerely. AUNT TRUDY.
