The skin about the eyeballs is thin :ier than on any other part of the face; ,here is less fatty tissue under it and it falls quicker into wrinkles. Oculists state that comparatively iew people have absolutely normal ,eyesight; those who have do not take ,are always to read or work under proper conditions of light, and the re sult is that most adults and many , hildren so overwork the musecl(i .,bout the eyes as to form wrinkles and loose, falling flesh. TIhe only reason why reading in a reclining position should have bad con s-eqlu nets is poor light, and incorrect[ abhit of hioldine the book or paper.

Moisten the second linger of the right hand w ith a reliable massage creatm and, with a series of little rotary move- ments. massage the space betn ctn. the 10o fingers. Repeat on the right aide. This is better done at night for the reason that the good effect of the iron ing out of the skin will continue dur- i ing sleep. For the wrinkles that form beneath the eyes, converging toward the nose, I recommend the following massage movement; Anoint the second hliner of both hands with massage cream, place them at the corners of the eyes near the nose and move thenl, lightly and briskly, beneath the eyes and toward the temples. Rtepeat this ten times every evening. using all the cream that the skit will absorh. In the morning bathe with cold water. The eye. itself, needs daily care and an eye cup is as necessary as a tooth brush. Personally, I believe in pure, cold water, but some oculists do not agree with me and recommend that a weak solution of boracic acid should be used.

Very fine wire is used for stringing the beads, which c·ome by the dozen at the depart ment stores, and for the tops a coil of `fin too 1:~ heavier wire answers the purpose.

SAS° DS HE simplest guest room that any one could imagine. The floor had on it a gray rag carpet. The walls were covered with plain gray paper and a black molding joined them to the ceiling. The nar row old-fashioned woodwork of win dow and door sills made streaks of black in keeping with the molding above the hanging of gray Japanese crepe. Many tones of quiet gray said the poet, but they served to throw in to relief odd bits of blue and yellow Moorish pottery and a row of blue books. The books were the point of the whole gray scheme of things. They were covered with blue Holland linen and the titles on the backs were of small yellow pasters. U OR floor dusters take some old flannel cloths, but be sure there are no seams or hems in, them. Saturate the cloths in kerosene and hang out of doors for about three days. Then they are ready for use. Put the cloths on the mop stick and go over the floors. 'I'he dust will all stick to the flannel and leave the floors brightly polished. When through dusting, shake the cloths well, and keep in a tightly closed tin can or box. When necessary wash the cloths, and repeat the process. HEN your dress shows wear at the bottom remove the braid and clean thoroughly. On the wrong side. just under the stitching of the hemn or facing. pinch up a tuck sufficiently deep to bring the worn part up on the wrong side of the heem instead of at the bottom of the skirt. Sew this tuck in by hand, taking care to have it true and even all around. This will muake your skirt, say. one-half inch shorter than form :erly. Flatten your new hem litu, with a warm iron; also press or flatten the tuck which you have formed on the wrong side of the hem. Put on new braid, allowing it to extend below the skirt as far as will looI well, and press. By this process the life of your skirt will have been doubled. Make all wash dresses at the bottom the same way. AK wainscoting and furniture are apt In time to assume a greasy appearance, which should be removed during the annual house-cleaning by washing it in warm beer. To give it a handsome gloss brush it over with a mixture of two quarts of beer, boiled with a ta bletspoonful of sugar and a piece of beeswax as large as a walnut. Whetl dry polish with a chamois or flannel.

Here he should have a stoal of pens, penhold t rs. peucils, pads and writing papec and he should be trained to use these materials frequently, says Mother's Magazine. Such a bit of puroperty helps hint to cultivate neatness and order. If hb evidences slovenliness at first, th!t mother should ilrge himn to orc'erli.res. aind insly'It his desk until he is : tained neatness. It should be impressed upon him that this is part of his training, that as , man he will always need to keep his paper in place and in order, and that if he is to be in the employ of others it will be to his advantage to hait formed good habits in such matters. The child will take pride in yoasee sion of his own desk and pens, and this will lead him to the cultivation of the use of pen and ink.
