I' i-i.:i.n has S'.me advantages c-. n in sr. ill' sii'ts. and the outfit at its best is not so iee..mii. that any woman. l..v e . i ret i y. cai. afford to isn-cre 'ii.

The bulldog- toe is rather losing caste, as It eies the foot a very clumsv ar- ; pearance. The reversible gSit cape is I a.ioihor very necessary item in this , special departmr.t of your wardrobe. : and is at all times useful for traveling. The guif.Infc- jacket or' w-aiste at Is ! douhh-l'ieasted. fastened with giit at I tons, is made of wool and wo. en in a ! vaii-ty of designs which have lia at ; i earapce ot being knitted. Tac'-e is a i v-iriety. too. in the colors, and some of the jackets have siik. sleeves. The Popular Handkerchief. The passing of the old-fashioned priceless lace handkerchiefs that our grandmothers used to consider neces sary is. emphasized by the announce ment that they have come in again. It wilt hardly be possible to re-establish them to th- point of t.ti-rying them, although the dictum may influence an additional purchase or two. Time was when a "best" lace handkerchief was included in the wardrobe of ev.-ry well dressed wa mart, but that time has long pas-Scd. The "smart' woman teday has dozens of fine har.dkei chiefs whose cost and beauty lie in their exquisite weave and in the daintiness and perfection, i.ot abundance, of the embroidery or lace that decorates them. Next to their fim-r.ess their plainness is a distinctive n ark. A har.dkerchi-f heavily trimmed with costly lac-, obviously unsuitel to f-equent laundering, is. Pot often seen nowadays. The Care of Flowers. On receiving flowers after a journey every stalk should be cut afresh, ar.d cut oi.iy the instant before being placed i in the water. When fl-.wers arrive from I any far distance th- stalks should be 1 prepared w itn a "long slanting cut, or j be slit up in order to expcs.e a large i surface to the water, and they should : be plui.ged deep in the water, right up j to the Mower itself, and left all night, i If the water is warm, so much the i better. Kvon for an ordinary journey , many things rou.--t have such a deep bath or total immersion. ; Fioweis that have milky juice, such ! as Oriental and other poppies, Stephan otis. and Bh vsi.a nf hus. want snecial ; eare. These "flowers and some oth-rs rave a fast-Mowing milky juice that dries nuickiv ar.d hardens over the cut as if it had been purposely sealed with a waterproof coating of India rubber. ; Therefore when you bunch up Oriental i poppies the moment before the bunch ! is put into its deep pail the ends are cut afresh, and the sta.iks are aiso slit up two or three inclu s. and as the juice ri.-ws cut they are plunged into the water, which washes it away. Home and Oarden. The All-important Work Basket. Mary Lowe Dickinson has eood counsel to offer to her sisters who have the care of a household upon their shoulders. When the clothing comes from the laundry, she says, confide such of it as needs the "stitch in time" to the work basket. And bv the work basket I do not mean the little basket that holds the spool and thread and the fight sew- I ing material, but a basket larae enough to hold whatever needs to be repaired or whatever piece of unfinished work Won Her Heart. - -f .3' ,-ated carj.at ice r.. more will sway cur souls as of a singer too onerous. she will forsake it for dram?.. En pa?a nt, it is fnterestingr to Ivara that nh-ng:er: the dramatic s:age will know Aiam'selle! may be on hand. Xever let anunmended article get back into the drawer of clothing that is ready for service. And when the repairs have been made place the fresh article at the bottom of its own pile, using for your next oc casion the articles on the top of the pile. In this way none of the clothing will be allowed to remain in the drawer until it becomes yellow from lack of use and the wear will be about equal on all suits. One of our objects is to dress well and at the same time to avoid great accumulations of garments too good to be thrown away and not good enough for comfortable use, yet en dured for economy's sake. Never fall into the mistake of sup posing that it- is of no importance that any garments be nice except those worn in sight. Fineness of texture, daintiness of trimmings, these can be dispensed with, but perfect cleanliness and perfect wholeness are indispensa ble. There is an intangible ethical in fluence or. as a good country mother put it, "Tnere is a sight of good man ners comes jest with bein' dressed up. ily children always behave better in their best clothes." She was right. The girl who "don't care what she puts on" doesn't care for some other things that she ought not to forget. Things Worth Knowing. Tour Mattresses Now that wire and chain mattresses are so much used it is economy to buy a piece of felt to go between the wire and the hair mattress on top. Unless this is done, the cover of the top mattress is soon worn into holes. Some people spread brown pa per, but the felt is very cheap, and much nicer. Clothes Pins If these are boiled a few- minutes every fortnight and then quic-kiy dried, they will last longer and make no dirt marks on the clothes. The .Moth Fiend Any strong pungent smell will keep away moths; so if you don't like the smell of camphor, mix together equal parts of pounded cloves, cinnamon, orris-root, or any other pungent spices. Fiil little muslin bags with the mixture and store them among your clothes. To .Mend Table Linen The ravellings cut from new tablecloths before hem ming are just what you want to mend thin places or hoies in the older ones. If you have not a supply of these, use flourish!. tg cotton of a fineness to match the texture of the cloth. A new wrinkle for your patent leather shoes. Clean them with French harness polish, which you can buy at any sad dler's or harness maker's. Rub it on lightly, then polish with a piece of soft woolly cloth.
