WOMAN AND HEH HOME,
The Wife Whose Taot Is an Aid and Comfort to Her Husband. She Is NOt by Ay Mheans as boares as Many People Think. Brnee ease Is the wear ad Tear of saek Day-Leaw Mew to Mesa. That the average woman does nothing bhut attend epenings and consider the effect of earious aumbinatons oft dress materials and bawnet adornments, while her poor, overworked humnd drudges n the ofe offieor warehouse, Is an altogether mistaken Idea, notwittbtanding the opinions frequently expremed by numerous brilliant writers who weould seem to take delight in proving hers uelalet ornament to society. The stylish skirt of three flounces is fre quently nade of smaU pieces that would erver answer the same purpose in any other shape, and husbands could, if they would, tell of more than one natty spring or fall suit worn with jaunty indifference which would have been an impossibility but for the ingenutty of the woman who sits beside him chatting so pleasantly, the envy of othermore tactless women, who never sus peat that each of the three tiny ruffles on her skirt cover a "piecing," and the sleeves are a standing joke between husband and wife, for she hadl covered the seams that meet in every direction with the frills of old lace which she has had tucked away for the last two years, knowing that they would come handy. Of course she must manage every way rather than spend a cent on her own costume. But the best part of this does not appear tothe aisual observer, who only notes the well dressed couple and fancies they have at least a comfortable al lowance of this world's goods. There iBa golden thread woven through all this piecing and planning, which lasts long after the garments are threadbare. She has been so happy in the self denial; so grateful for the gift which enables her to appear so well dressed while she is, in a manner, helling to earn the handsome suit for the husband of whom she is so proud. i She is proving her love for him in the most practical manner, and no wonder her face is wreathed with smiles as they enjoy the results of her industry and economy. And the husband. As he removes his coat and replaces it with the loose jacket he is wont to wear in the office there is a tender smile playing about his mouth, and an unusually careful adjustment of each fold of the garment his wife has pulled and patted into shape before he left home, asshe told him how becoming the new clothes really were and how handsome he looked in them. No wonder he murmurs as he finally hangs up the coat: "Bless the little woman! She's the best wife in the world."-Ram's Horn. Learn How to Rest. The art of good looks is a fine art indeed, and ore that deserves the encouragementit seems to be getting on every side. Even those "aids to beauty" in the shape of lo tions, lemon water and skin soaps so en thusiastically urged upon womankind from the back pages of every magazine and pamphlet in the land are not to be treated with topping scorn. They have their places and use in the general struggle for loveli ness. But why not back up these efforts for comeliness by common sense conducted throughout each day's wear and tear? To begin with, women sit too much, and women stand quite too much. Nothing is so wearisome as "standing about," even to the well trained body that has been drilled into good poise, and sitting is not resting, however cleverly women may delude them selves on this point. The young girl i ho desires to keep away, crow's feet and that jaded look weall know ' so well and to retain the suppleness and adorable bloom of extreme youth should, when off parade or off duty, as the case may be, and in her own room, make the conch or the floor her habitual resting place. Absolute repose comes to the tired mus d!es only when the hoaly is in a reclining' position, and absolute repose comesto the overstrung nerves only whnr the muscular system is perfectly at rest -relaxed. The middle aged woman could, I am pos itive, woo back much of the freshness and lithesomeneess of girlhood if she would be at a little pains to learn how to rest. Five uinutne of rest liat on one's back on the floor or on ai harl, smooth couch tare worth half an hour of so styled "rest" in an armchair or in tit unreposeful tempt er, the rocking chair. Some one ha.s said to the woitmen of to day, "Never stand wh,n ya ou can si, tever sit when you can liedown." 'tiis exhor tation applied with s.nte (elasicity is the beat recipe for heauty I kunIv; of. While I have littte symyLpathy with the gorl,el of laciness preached I , can:'istencly by some lives, I do rc-umnna,;nd frequaeut daily lapses into complete f'llowne.ea New Orleans Times-I)emocrat, Don't Frighten the lable,s. It is no fairy story when we tell of chil dren who are frightened into nervous :rod hysterical conditions siraiply lecause of the awful tales that are told them by nur -e mald's who.e consciences, if they have any, are so dulled that they feel nuo :corn'!ctcion in terrorizing their charg-s, and bl Inqg arS they can get away for an hour:s gossip or good time below stairs they think nos,.il'ng of the poor little frightened baby who lies in the daLk with a fluttering heart, await ing in tearful anticipation t ie awful thinrs that will take him if he raises his voice iin protest.

Many a mother little dreams that the child whom she thinks so .,otd to go to Sleet, without rocking lie. awake half h,. night in ab,-ctL terror, oawing to the tlJe-: that have been ti,:l it by iguriwut servantls or others to wihamn the care of the 'hild il irk.inse.

How to Air Beds. Tho most effectual way to air Iids and bedclothing is to throw the clotho.; over a chair atnd lift the mrittrers par:i:y over the footbtlard in a round, Itooplike i..ilcu, rnod it a father bed is unse, pull it off upon a chair. Thien open the windows and door, so that at cturreit of air cfa p:i,s throtluh tice room, and let it ret",ain so for two tar three hours or even longrg. Bevis thr:saired are always healthful, and will Indac:t. -uorad slep in their occupants. Each member of the family should be trained to do this daily, and never allowed to leave the room nti!l it eisso arSaaPed. Boysas well as girls can be taught to do thib, and they w.sl ea: the benefit of it through their live aad be sure to have their children trained In the same way. A bed that is only aired 'occasionally must contract impurities from the body and can4. be frsh and sweet. Some per sons lwapg the pillows out of the window, and it is an excellent plan if you will first brush of the dust on the sill. Once a week, or as often as possible, the year around, hang the bedding out on the line toa4r It the sun and wind. This is not only a sanitary precaution, but it is a great plea.sre to have the bedding smell so sweetbad bsak. If there is anything de testable .il unwholeaome, it is a bed reek ing wibth e ooemljd odors of wash ing. tgb and stewing, which penetrate to the Iseenas corners of many houses. There no aed of it. Even the poorest can have tish air, at least in the country. -Jenness Miller Monthly. Disposition of Household Itefese. "If all housekeepers followed my exam pie, the ashmcn would have most of his trouble for his pains," remarked a clear headed woman as she dumped a bundle of odds aed ends into a kitchen range. "I never have ansything for the ashman except at housealeaning time and on unusual oo casions save the ashes and olnders. I have several reasons for this. One is that I ex cessivelydislikethe smell of kitchen refuse, and never allow it to stand about if I can help it. After my meal is prepared, I gath er up everything that is useless and put it onto the coals In the range, then turn on the drafts full. In 15 minutes, all other things being equal, there will not be ascrap of objectionable material left. Everything is reduced to clean ashes. I consider it an actual waste to throw out the refuse into the garbage can. "It is just so much good fuel to me, and I never think of doing it. I can keep a fire for hours on corncobs, potato-parings, apple-cores, peachDits and similar stuff, that is ordinarily thrown away. I never allow the yard or areaway to be cumbered up by trash of any sort. Dust sweepings, leaves, dried-up flowers, everything goes into a receptacle, and in due course of time finds its way into the capacious throat of the kitchen range. I find that this sort of thing makes quite a bit of difference in my coal bills, and that, to me, is an item of some importance."-Neew York Ledger. Mme. Necker's Conversations. A curious anecdote was told me lately about Minme. Kecker, the clever mother of a still more illustrious daughter-Mme. de Stael. It seems that a certain M. de Chas tellard was invited by herto adinnerparty, and he, by some mistake, arrived act the house too early and sat down in the salon to wait till the hostess appeared. While waiting, he wandered about the room, and presently found behind a cushion a little book, which he took up, supposing it to be a book of extracts copied in. But, to his great surprise, he read a long resume of the subjects upon which Minme. Necker intended to talk that evening, and they were actual ly labeled, "Talk with Mine. So and So on such a thing," every expected guest Ix-ing mentioned by name, with the particular topics suited to the tastes and caliber of each. M. de Chastellard's own name was of course in the list, and he had just time to see what he might expect in the way of conversation at dinner, when the mistress of the house came mn and he quickly put the book back whence he hadl taken it. No one would think for a moment that a wom an so much above the average in intellect as Mme. Necker required such aids as the small pages of manuscript contained, and it only shows that it does not do to get too much behind the scenes under any circum stances whatever.-London Gentlewoman. Fanny Kemble Shopping. I went out shopping with Fanny Kem ble one fine spring morning, when she thought her room would look brighter for musliu curtains to admit the light. She carried a long puree full of sovereignsin her hand. We drove to Regent street, to a shop where she told me her mother and, her aunt used both to go. It may have ,o. n over thalt very count er that the claselo "Will it wash?" was uttered. The sliopman, who had assuredly not served Mrs. Siddons, or he would have learned hi-; lesson earlier in life, produced silken iLagings and worsted and fabrics of various hues and textures to Mrs. Kem ble's great annoyance. I had gone to another counter and came back to find her surrouunded by draperies, sitting Sn her chair and looking very seri onu; distant thunder seemed in the air. "'`ioug w:an," said she to the shopman, "Iperhai: your time is of no value to you- to mie my time is of great value. I shall thank you to show nme the things I asked for, instead of all these thtings for which I did not task," and she fdhued such a glance at hint as musi have surprised the youth. lie iookedl perfectly scared, seemed to leap o'·er the counter anld the muslin cur tal'..- .ppe:red on itoe spot.-Macmillan's lrecorating Dl)uner Tables.

Let us.urn our gaze inward, those of us who eanubb thor oughgoing workers with brain or hand. What dowe find? A mild chaos, a glim mering nebula of fancies, an insipid brain soup wherea few lumps of thought swim in a watery gravy of drams, and as noth ing can come of nothing what wonder if no brilliancy of achievement promises to flood our future with its light? FrancesWillard thinks that few women growing up under the present order of things can claim com pleteexemptionfrom this graveltellectual inflrmity.-Ram's Horn. Early Prguadlee Against Women Doctors. Medicine as a profession for women is less than 50 years old. Dr. Mary Zakrzewska of Boston has recently published an inter esting account of the early struggles of the pioneers in this particular field; Harriet Hunt and Elisabeth Blackwell were stirred by the idea that an important work might be done by well instructed medical women. The materialization of this view resulted in complete social ostracism, impossible to be endured by any but the strongest and most courageous women. No woman doctor ever earned a living before 1860. No respectable family, in any commonlyrespectable neigh borhood, would let rooms to a woman phy sician. Even when friends gave hershelter, a business card or sign was not allowed. The lack of practical training was really the stumbling block and the cause of all this prejudice.-Medical Record. Rich Bed Coverings. Ladies interested in needlework are giv ing much attention now to bedspreads. White coverings are no longer sufficient for people with luxurious tastes. Someof the recently finished appointments of bedrooms have a real significance. In the first place the bed stands on a dais and commands the room, and in addition to its own richness of carving and inlay of precious woods, it is hung and covered with therichestof stuffs. A very elegant covering for one of these regal beds is of canary colored Tussah silk, embroidered with straggling branches of the wild rose, wrought with embroidery silk and fine crewels. The combination of the silk and crewel is a very happy one. The lining of the spread is turquoise blue silk and the edge finished with a heavy blue silk cord.-Good Housekeeping. Artistic Salt Cellars. Old fashioned salt cellars are here again, but in such artistic designs that we greet them as novelties. The silver eats and dogs, with their perforated heads, no longer stand guard over each plate at the table. Their successor is much more artistic. The very latest salt cellars are bought by the dozen. They are shaped like a,ansy, with the curled over petals in frosttlpped silver and gilt. The salt spoon is a tiny affair. Its handle is twisted gold, with the bowl an exquisitely shaped enaletled& pansy, which looks like a stick pin with a deep center. Tinted glass salt cellasr encased in silver filigree are used by thes ultra fash ionable.-Exchange. Useful Little Paper aggs. Save the small paper bags carefully which groceries come in; they ase useful in many ways. Slip the hand in one when you black the stove and you will not soil it. When flies abound, slip them over the clean lamp chimneys during the day. After fruit is canned draw them over the can and label theta plainly. The action of tlhelightcauses more fruit to spoil than any other one thing. A Useful Toilet Table. An exceptionally useful toilet table article is thus made and ornamented: Stuff alarge cushion with curled hair, cover with linen and then with any pale silk. Sew a narrow ribbon diagonallyacross one end and thrust a shoe hook and a glove buttoner through it. Make four long pouchesof the gathered silk at the four sides of the cushion to hold cult buttons, scarf pinlus. etc. There is nothing which the average hus band better appreciates than a tidy, well ordered home, with a place for everything and everything in its place. On the other hand, there is no more potent source of do mestic unhappiness than disorder in living apartments. It pays well to do the mending before the article goes into the wash, since the pro cesses to which it is there subjected mate rially enlarge the holes, and it is better and more agreeable to wear if the washing fol lows the mending. Felt is especially desirable for decorative purposes. A pretty table cover may be made of white felt, painted in old rose, bow knot and yellow chrysanthemum design. The border may be of fringe or done in rib. bon loops. The only ornament worn by the widowed Archduchess Stephanie of Austria isa lock et contaiuinlg on one side theportraitof her little daughter and on the other that of her mother, the queen of Btelgim. It is not considered correct to use the ex pr.stlon "making calls." One should say "paying visits." One goes to pay a visit, Snot to make a call.
