13 FOR TIIEVOMHI. Wash Silk is More Popular Than Ever. The Plainer They Are Made Up the Better. SKIRTS TO BE DONE UP. White Pique is the Fail Though Linen is Still Popular. Things of Interest to House keepers and Others. Wash silk promises to be a popular fabric for summer wear; it comes in almost ail of the pretty shades ami tints lut is not so inexpensive as one wouid think as it is so narrow that it takes several yards more than silk uf ordinary width. The prettiest wash. silk dresses fcre made without lining"?, as are any ther wash materials, and the plainer the more tffctive. They lauder very t.k-ely but with a lime care may be v.urn an tntire season without needing it. Wash silk pmns are pretty for -veninsr war in the summer and are t-t'isjt'ac tory ti take with one on a few .'.ays' visit as thy are easily packed without v rinkiirifc,-". New !Jias ia Hosiery.

Wash skirts are aaln to the fnt; si'ti- ,t them are exceedir.ely pretty, '..it of the other the 1-ast said the bet ter. Whit- pique skirts are always pr-tty wh-r. pntr-ily made, and r'r-sh from'the laundry. Hut it is said that this ummer. white wool skirts are to tak- th- place- of pique, and if this is tru- th- laundry bill f the summer cir! will be trr-atiy reduced.

Many of th-m are of one material, tucked or with insertion s--t in. but a f-w are n with a broad strip of a darker material about the l..-ttoIn. braided in whit-. As a rule th-s- skirts are not so satisfactory as a hkth.t weight wool skirt for wear with shirt waists. Fads and Fancies. j Th- millinery fruits which appear on s-m- of the latest hats are fearfully j nr. 1 wonderfully made of black and col- j .red velvets. Th-r- is variety, too. in this counterfeit fruit department, and j the black cherries and grapes ai-- really quite a succ-ss not as true lvcres-nta- : 1:0ns of their kind perhaps, but as jriv- ir.z trikimr eftects with trreen l-aved i n the i r-am straw hats with a stylish t.w of blai k velvet ribbon, or tr5am lace and a buckle. Hows in th- hair have become so c mmon that they are considered out of sty!- by th- ultra smart. And for even ins diess, a wreath of leaves. either meen. silver and gold in color, or in the tsray fa !-d tints of violet and red. tire worn instead. Young girls wear a wreath of small- flowers or one single r-al rose. i ne of the pretty new fringes is made f satin cords, black, white or colored. ..mbir.evl in some instances with loops of taft-ta ribb-n. A fashionable farni'it hi. h conti- I tutes part of a ra' mr costume is a mil itary i'o.-kiiii? coat reaching to the kr.-es.

The t V- 1 - - - - - - - - " edges are joined with an open-work stitch. Another pretty use for French knot in white is on narrow black vel vet ribbon for trimming dollar bands. The strictly severe sailor hat is not vety much ir. favor this season, and if we tad always followed French taste in tins particular it never would have flourished to any such extent as it has. It is suitable only for young- girls, decked in outing garb, but it has been and is stiil v.orn by women who have passed the four corners of life. How ever, there is a substitute for this hat almost as anable in shape and trim minsr as the faces which it shadows. There is the sailor shape in soft lace like straw, trimmed with a styiish bow of velvet or ribbon, a huge chiffon ro sette with, golden galoon or a scarf of chiffon aroitrd the crown and possibly fold of chiffon facing the brim. There are turbans and toques of rough straw and pique, covered with stitching and trimmed with soft silks. Rough Rider hats we have had all winter, and they ate here again, made of felt, straw and linen duck. Pretty Favors For Summer Cotillon. The cotillon as a finish to alf dancing parties has become so popular on alt occasion that any one who knows how to lead it rises immediately into favor with all. The pleasure and responsibil- i ity of engineering the figures should be ! shared by a couple, while a third person decides us the length of the dances by tapping on his tambourine, and at the same time sees that the dancers follow the intentions of the leader, if a figure demands that the participants cease dancing after a few turns. Small favors are prettily arranged in flaring baskets. Between the figures when the dancers are seated the lead ers distribute the favors. Canes with large tissue paper flowers on them are pretty favors. The leaders distribute them, and after waltzing once around the room each leader chooses ! two p-rsons according to the flowers j they have decided on, so that in a mo- i ment those who have poppy flowers, for i example, are dancing together. When ail the flowers have been matched the ! figure ends with a march. Tissue paper hat for men and becoming bonnets for laaies are very attractive, and, in tact. boas, collarettes, epaulettes, reticule bags, aprons and many other pretty- things are made out of tissue paper for cotillons. A target and especially prepared shot guns are to be had for the cotillon. A lady nr a gentleman holds the target up before the face, and two persons of the opposite sex shoot simultaneously. The one who comes nearest the mark dances with the one who held the target. Each figure lasts on an average ot ten minutes, so that one needs arrange at least ten figures to close a dancing par ty successfully. American Girls Better Looking. The rage for outdoor exercise that has taken possession of American gtris of I late years is already bringing forth its j legitimate fruits, and unbiased observ I ers d-clare that they are growing i ! grace and comeliness every year, says ) an exchange. They are taller, straight i f-r and more healthful looking than were I those of a generation ago. The increas ! iiig opportunities for physical culture I and open-air exercise have undoubted- iy brought about this change, tiirls are 1-arning that the first essential to good I looks is good health and that health de , pends on plenty of exercise. In England I great attention is paid to athletic sports 1 f -r girls. They are brought up to take j part in all kinds of vigorous exercise I and in pastimes which keep them out ' in trie fresh air. such as riding, golhng i and boating. To many persons cricket and hockey may seem to be unusual amusements for girls, yet at the girls' schools and colleges in- England these games are as popular as basket-ball is in the United States. American girU have arrived gradually at the knowl edge cf the delights of outdoor life. Fashion, which has had much to do with bringing sports into favor, has really been a blessing in disguise, but it is not probable that the enthusiasm for athletics will be a passing fad when one considers its accompanying advantages to health, strength and beauty. Well developed, symmetrical muscles are necessary to graceful outlines, round ness of limb and the ease and supple- ness of movement which create admira- it-iii. iiruuu uui jiii v sues oooii oeau- ty. adds a glow- to the cheek and a bril liancy to the eye. but it animates the spirits and makes the possessor happy. A de!ii-ate girl who is entirely untit to ride a bicycle or to ptay tennis may put herself in good condition to take up these pastimes by exercising with light dumbbells or going through calisthenic movements in a gymnasium. To Clean Oil Portraits. If people knew what an easy task it is to clean portraits and oil paintings they would never 1-t them hang, black and colorless, on their walls. In nine cases out of ten pictures painted by the last generation of artists owned by pri , vate collectors or individuals have al most entirely lost their beauty by being coated with dirt and smoke. Either of the following methods can be used by any careful person without fear of in jury to the picture, and in many cases can restore its surface to its original freshness and brilliancy of color. As this is the simplest method it is welt to try it first. Take the picture , from its frame and lay it on a large ta- ble. face upward. Have a bowl of tepid i water and a good sia-d sponge in readi ; ness. Reel a large white potato and cut ; it in half. Then, with the sponge and ; water, go carefully over the entire sur ! face of the picture. In case it is badly cracked, as so many old paintings are, : let the sponge be fairly dry, for if the ! water should ooze under the paint it ! might crack more. Now take the pota i to. and with the Fmooth side go ove- the i entire surface while it is wet. Do not ! scrub hard, as that is apt to stretch the j canvas and necessitate its being taken ! off the stretcher. The potato should j mov- in a circular motion, which should , b- kept up until the canvas is in a lather. Th- dirt ill swion begin to soft en and make the lather quite black. Keep rubbing until all the spots and stains disappear, and then wash care fully and very thoroughly with tepid water and the sponge. Unless the dirt has been varnished in a picture will usually readily respond to his tr-atment, but in ease it will not. . i the follow ing method is almost sure to give tne desired result: Double a heavy blanket twice and sprinkle it freely with alcohol; then turn the picture in its frame, face downward over it. The fumes of the al cohol will soon begin to rise and loosen the dirt; it will also clarify the varnish and give it the appearance of havine been just applied. The picture should be kept over the alcohol until all the spots have disappeared from its sur face and Itft it fresh and bright in col or. The portrait should then be spong ed with tepid water and placed whtre it will dry slowly. Never use any soap on an oil painting. It may remove the dirt, but the chemicals in it are sure to iio damage, though tne immediate re suit may b verv Dleasana- Manv a e.-wd i picture has been ruined by soap and a ! scrubbing brush. The Charm of Cordiality. There is hardly anything in fact, I honestly believe there is nothing that can take the place of cordiality in the home, so far as the pleasure of" guests is concerned, declares a thoughtful wo man. Fittings and furnishings may be elegant, the carpets upon which "you tread may have beeu designed, and Two Smart Waistcoat Fronts. These two charming specimens of th e fronts now used with the eollarless Eton coats. The front is a dainty combination of silk muslin and guipure, the other is spotted panne velvet, with border of a lighter shade. woven by the most skilled hands in all tne world, and the paintings that hang on the walls be genuine old masters, a,nd yet if in the midst of ail this beauty and elegance you are not met with a cordial smile and handclasp, you are conscious of something lacking. And the voice must sound cordiality. Words alone, no matter how well chosen, are empty unless there is a true ring in the voice. Therefore, cul tivate a cordial voice if you care to win a little place in the hearts of those you tiaiiy meet. To Send Flowers by Mail. Flow ers may be sent by mail and ar rive in good condition if picked over night and kept in pans of water, not m vases, nor even m w-ider necked jars. In the morning they should be dried and rolled into bunches so tightly as to exclude all air from both stalk and t'owers. Newspaper may be used for this wrapping. They may then be packed rather closely in pasteboard boxes, and w ill travel a reasonable dis tance without serious detriment. For the Housekeeper. THE PICNIC LUNCHEON. Appetite, usually watts on the picnic luncheon, be it ever so simply pre pared, but if the luncheon is to fur nish a delightful memory it must be all that is dainty, delicious and appe tizing. If steam cars. trolleys or boats are to convey the party, paper boxes are the best for carrying the food, as they can be thrown away and will not burden the return trip. The wooden plates used by grocers are de sirable for the same reason. Salt and pepper shakers, knives, forks and spoons are the only utensils besides the tablecloth, napkins and cups, that will need to be returned. The can opener and corkscrew- should be put in ex posed positions on the previous day, so they will not be forgotten. Of sar.dwiches there should always be an abundance, and in preparing them it will be safe to count on at least 5" per cent, over the usual home a'.oetitrs. The boxes should be lined with paranne paper, and uniess mixed ilavors are desired, only one kind of food should be placed in any box. Es pecially should cheese, pickles and any onion flavored dish be given exclusive quarters. Sandwich fads may come and go. but for hungiy people, chicken, ham and tor.gue sandwiches are the standbys. To make ham sandwiches grind one pound of ham tine. Mix together thoroughly the yolk of two hard boiled eggs with two tablespoonfuls of butter, one teaipoonful of English mustard and salt and pepper to taste. A tea spoonful of shallot and a tablespoonf ul of capeis. both finely chopped, may be added to a part of the mixture if dif ferent flavors are wanted. Cut a long, square shaped loaf of bread into thin, slices and remove the crust. Spread a tablespoonful of the mixture b-tween each two slices and cut them in two iiaaonuliy. Sart'ines and anchovies may be used in place of the ham. If the luncheon is to be prepared 3-vcral hours before it is served the "sandwiches are better without lettuce or cress. The latter, however, keeps Corset Tor f ;jfK fcW i f t This Paris model & &n extreme novelty. It has not enly the stylish straight front, but curved au-1 well bvned hip extensions. It is for slight figures only. fresh the longer and may be placed be tween the slices after they are spread. For chicken sandwiches, chop one pound of meat, dark and white, fine. Add one tablespoor.tul of butter, one tablespoonful of mayonnaise dressing, and season to taste with salt, pepper and celery salt, adding chopped capers if they are liked. A tablespoonful of finely chopped celery may be substi tuted for the celery salt. For devilling, only fresh eggs will an swer. Boil the eggs for fifteen minutes. When they are eoid remove the shells, cut them in halves and remove the yolks. To save trouble keep the two pieces of the white of each egg together. Rub the yolks to a pate with melted butter, and season them with salt and pepper and English mustard or with chow-chow. Fill the hollows in the white portions with the mixture. Place the parts of each egg to gether and wrap it in paraffine paper. Tomato salad can be easily prepared at home, but will require careful packing. Select large, round tomatoes, wash them, and remove the pulp from the inside, leaving a cup with a good stout wall. Sea son the pulp with salt, pepper and may onnaise dressing and return to the to mato cups. Pack them closely, and car ry the box containing them right side up. A salad that harmonizes with woodland appetites is made of new potatoes. Boil the potatoes, if possible, the day they are wanted. aJid cut them Into dice, but han dle them with care, to prevent their get ling "saivy." ilake a boiled dressing as follows: Boil one-half cupful of vinegar and pour It over one well-beaten egg which has been mixed with one table spoonful of melted butter, one teaspoonful of English mustard, one teaspoonful of sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook the mixture until it is limpid. Add one half cupful of cream whipped stiff. But into a tight, wide-mouthed bottle. Add to the potato one tablespoonf ul of chopped onion to every quart of the potato. Put it into a fruit jar. At luncheon serve each person with the potato and dress ing separately, leaving each to do his own mixing. Fruit, olives, salted almonds, bonbons, lemonade and cold coffee are prime essen tials to a picnic. Lemon juice sufficient for a large party will occupy a small bot . tie. Extra sugar should be taken, as tastes vary in lemonade as in other things. The coffee should be seasoned while it is hot. If care is used in the packing, bundles may be distributed among the party so that no one will be overDuraeneti. A Few Helpful Hints. When furs are left off they should be well beaten with a small cane, then wrap ped up in linen and brown paper with I some camphor in small lumps and put I into boxes well closed. For cl-anirig kitchen tables: One pound t of fuller's earth, half a pound of suft S soap, quarter of a iound of soda. Pour t on boiling wter enough to make a paste. No soap w-ill be required with this, j To clean varnished paint. take the I tea leaves which are left in the tea-pot. i pour some hot water over them, and let i them stand 10 minutes. Then pour the ; tea into a basin. Wash the paint with a clean nannei ana dry witn a clean ciotn. To clean marble take two parts of washing soda, one part of pumice stone and one part of finely powder-d chalk: sift it through a line sieve and rinse it with water. Rub the marble well with the mixture until the stains are removed; then wash with soap and water.

If coffee is spilled on linen the stains j can be removed by soaking the part in clear cold water, to which a little borax has been added, for 12 hours. If the stain is from tea or fruit, do not put the ar ticles in cold water or the stain will be come set. Simply pour boiling water over it until it disappears, which it will If quite fresh.

A delicious dessert and one that la quickly made is ' peach pudding. Until the fresh fruit makes its appearance can ned or evaporated peaches, of which there are excellent brands in the market, may be used tnstead, and choose the rich yellow variety, each half large and ten der. The evaporated sort must be well washed and soaked over night; they will eooff sufficiently in the pudding. Have twelve halves spread out. with sugar in the hollow; one half may have a stoned date, cherry, etc.. placed in it in stead of the pit. Rub a large tablespoon ful of butter into a pint of flour, sifted with a teaspoonful of baking powder and half a teaspoonful of salt. Beat an egg very light, stir into a scant cupful ot miik and mix this gradually with the pre pared flour, beating well at the last. Pour this into a greased baking pan, largo enough to allow the fruit to be spread out and the batter to be about an inch thick; bake for half an hour in a brisk oven. Serve hot with cream and sugar or any sauce fancied. STUFFED PINEAPPLE. Pineapple farct or stuffed pineapple is seasonable now that the pines are plenti ful and good. The top of the fruit is cut off a short distance below the green tuft and the contents of the lower part taken out to within a quarter of an inch of the nna all around, leaving, however, tne shell slightly thicker at the bottom. The tender part of what has been taken out. together with blanched almonds, is chop- pea nne ana mixed witn grated tresn e coanut, orange juice, or, if preferred, very tmn nail slices ot oranges, the mixture is then returned to the hollowed-out pine. ami tne top, which has been carefully wiped free of any dust that may cling to the stiff green leaves, is replaced, and the fruit set in the ice-box to chill thoroughly tor an hour before serving. SPONGE CAKE. This recipe is loo years old and has been used in the family of the writer for three generations in Boston. Take the weight of eight eggs in sugar, bne-half the weight (or four ersrs in flour. sift the tiour several times before measur ing. Place the sugar and flour in platters near the fire to keep warm. Beat the yolks of the eggs twenty-rive minutes then beat the whites until they are perfectly- stiff; add the sugar to the yolks. beating, not stirring in, then add the whites and lastly sift in the hour: add the juice of two lemons; the rule is one lemon to every four eggs. Beat together quickly and bake in a good oven for twenty-rive minutes. The secret of having this cake good is in tossing it together quickly. It must not be stirred, as that makes it close and heavy. Before beginning to beat the eeg3 rake the fire down and put on fresh -oa!s. so that the tire will be gradually getting hotter until the cake is done. Unless the eggs are absolutely fresh and one has plenty of time to beat them thoroughly it is better not to attempt to make this cake. There is no other sponge cake that is as fine as this p.nd it is the same recipe that was used by many w-ell known Bos ton housekeepers fifty years and more ago. Boston Transcript. HONOLULU SAUCE. Honolulu sauce Is excellent for meat and fish and is made thus: A small cocoanut. one-quarter of an onion, one clove of gar lic, one inch of root ginger, two large tablespoonfuls of curry powder, one quart of milk, four tablespoonf uis of butter, four tablespoonfuls of flour, satt and pep per to taste: grate the onion, garlic, gin ger and cocoanut into a double bober and add the curry powder and milk; cook siowiy for an hour, beat the butter to a cream, add the flour and beat the mixture until it is smooth and light: strain the curry' mixture upon it gradually so as to prevent its becoming lumpy, add the meat and fish, which are to ie served with this sauce, and cook until boiling hot about a quarter of an hour.

The Best Prescription Is Grove's Tasteless Chill Tonic. The Formula Is Plainly Printed on Every Bottle So That the People May Know Just What They Are Taking. Imitators do not advertise their formula knowing that you would not buy their medi cine if you knew what it contained. Grove's contains Iron and Quinine put up in correct proportions and is in a Tasteless form. The Iron acts as a tonic while the Quinine drives the malaria out of the system. Any reliable druggist will tell you that Grove's is the Original and that all other so-called "Taste less" chill tonics are imitations. An analysis of other chill tonics shows that Grove's is superior to all others in every respect. You are not experimenting when you take Grove's its superiority and excellence having long been established. Grove's is the only Chill Cure sold throughout the entire malarial sections of the United States. No Cure, No Pay.
