nre many, both In evening and visiting

Lingerie Blouses to Stay,
It Is decreed that lingerie blouses
are to be worn until winter, and more

For the latter they are to bo furnished
with plain India silk undersllps that

Of Velvet and Cloth.
Never has velvet been more popu
lar for trimming than this season Rnd
almost every frock, be It evening

trimmed nt least to some slight ex

foregone conclusion upon every coat,
whatever be the general nature of the
cut. A particularly stunning gown

Ftltchod bands of cloth and velvet

harmonizing shade of purple and the
deep girdle of silk matched the ma-
terlal. Sleeves were- trimmed nt elbow
with cuff anil strap of cloth and ruf
fle of velvet. The skirt was walking
length, perfectly phun and rippling

the froek was a hat of violet heaver,

Hair Braid for Hats.
Tho new est braid usul in I he mak

time very little of this braid was used
for other than dress purposes. A
hair braid hat which Illustrates tho
possibilities of this model Is made up
of two plati.-iux draped something
after the fashion of the Charlotte Cor
day bonnet, but more on the turban
order. It is caught at each side with
black velvet hows, which are fasteni d
with largo carbiichons of white hair.
Another style of outing hat which is
developed Into white hair braid Is a

draped in black velvet loops and tho
nds are caught into a square black
velvet buckle at one side.
Pretty Silk Coat.
A pretty coat in dark blue rajah Filk
was made with the waist lino hlph un

velvet, and was outlined on either
side of the vest and around the waist
with a Hat. bias band of tho silk sewed
on by hand. In front the band was
ornamented with four handsome silk
passementeries, with long silk frinpes.
A similar ornament trimmed the short
puffeil sleeve, which was further em
bellished with two ruffles of narrow
villi nclennes. Tho silk of the coat
was shirred and lump, below the knees.

How to Acquire and Retain the Priceless Posses
sion of tood Health
How to Ventilate.
With the advent of the cold wonth
er the doors and windows are closed,
largely shutting; out the purifying In
fluences of the fresh air which has so
freely circulated through the house
during the warmer season. ,
The rude habitations of our pioneer
ancestors, with their capacious open
fireplaces, were Biipt rlor to our mod
ern palatial dwellings In that there
was always possible an abundant sup
ply of fresh air. Houses of the pres
ent day in our civilized land are made
ns nearly air-tight ns architectural
skill can secure, anil unless provided
with aonie systematic mechanical
means of ventilating, the Indoor air Is
constantly contaminated wl'h breath
poisons and other Impurities resulting
from the heating and lighting and
rooking within the house, ko as to
be n constnnt menace to the health of
Probably the best means of provid
ing the needed -supply of fresh air. Is
the open fire with a wide-mouth chim
ney to act as ventilator. The open
grate Is likewise the most healthful
means of heating a house; although
so far as fuel alone Is concerned, it Is
not tne most economical. Weighed In
the balance with the saving In health,
however. It may be considered a mat
ter of economy.
If other means of heating tie em
ployed, good ventilation can be se
cured only hy some special arrange
ment for the Incoming of fresh air
nnd the outgoing of foul air. How
this may be well accomplished Is best
told in the words of a well known au
thority on the subject: "The foul air
outlet should be constructed on the
plan of the fireplace an opening near
the floor connected with the chimney
or nn upright ventilating shaft, the
top of which should extend above the
roof like a chimney. The ventilating
shaft should always be located In nn
Inside wall, nnd, if pos-dblo, should
be placed next to a chimney which Is
always warm. The chimney heals
the duct and Increases the draft.
"Tho opening for the outlet of Im
pure air should be at the bottom of
tho room when the house Is heated
by n furnace or by other means which
warms the fresh air before it is ad
mitted to the rooms. If the fresh air
Is admitted cold, the foul-air outlet
should he at a higher levtl. The best
point is perhaps at about four feet
from the floor. This will secure a
thorough admixture of the air. If the
outlet Is nt the floor, the cold fresh
air admitted to the room will pass
out before It has been warmed and
used, while the hot foul air will ac
cumulate in the tipper part of tho
room, and thus the change of air will
"Two openings must bo provided to
secure proper ventilation, one for the
entrance of fresh air, the other for
the exit of foul air. It Is In every
way better that the air should be
heated, at least partially, before It
enters the room, ns this will to a
large decree prevent the formation of
a cold layer about the floor."
"There are too many Fsatts who
sell their birthright of health jor a
mess of pottage, and it Is difficult to
realize how much of the suffering and
111 humor of life Is due to not having
learned to do without In the matter of
eating and drinking."
f?lr Tender Urunton, n famous Eng
lish physician and surgeon. Is quoted
by a special Ixtndon cable to the New
York Herald as recommending a
"temper powder," consisting of bro
mide pf potash and other drugs,
which should be taken whenever ono
Is subjected to "some Irritating occur
rence," or "some depressing news."
"to take away the sting of either, so
that In the place of being much wor
ried and unable to turn nttention to
other things, a person fools ns if he
had slept over the bad news or worry,
and Is able to obtain relief by turn
ing his nttention to something else."
According to this dispatch. Sir I an
tler Urunton recommends the "tem
per powders" as a means of prevent
ing "those constant, explosions of tem
per on the part of a member of tho
family," which "may affect the health
of the other members, who have their
appetites spoiled, their digestion Im
paired, their nerves shattered, and
their pleasures In life destroyed by
the mental suffering Induced by the
Irritable temper of another. For
these patients the best treatment Is to
administer 'temper powders' to the
offending person, when the distress
ing symptoms of the other members
Of the family will be relieved."
This Is, Indeed, an easy way out of
trouble: but It Is a dangerous expe
dient, and In the end will only make
worse trouble, for the effects of bro
mide of potash and other stupefying
drugs are to leave the subject In a
state of Increased Irritation when the
effects have worn off. In order to
euro bad temper, then, by th's plan,
the only effective method would be to
keep the patient under the constant

Occupation for tho Aged.
Qualn, In his Medical Dictionary, at
bltrarlly defines advanced life as the
period between sixty-two and eighty
two, nnd the .time of old age beyond
that period. But the infirmities of
age are measured, not so much by
length of days aa by the integrity ot
the bodily functions, and the sound
ness of the organic structures.
The question. How much work la
normal and ratlonnl for each? must
be answered according to the past life
and present condition of each Indi
vidual old man or woman. For most
old people, however, there Is no em
ployment better than work In a gar
den In which they have some commer
cial Interest. Honey, honestly earned
and wisely spent, promotes health.
Tho hoeing, weeding, trimming, gath
ering and marketing of the fruits and
vegetables or flowers; the open air
life, exercise In the sunshine among
growing things; the healthy stimulus
of planning the work, studying and
talking to others of the best methods
of gardening what Is most profitable
to plant In that region, how the land
should be fertilized, and where and
when to sell the products all this
keeps the mind active.
Poultry raising and bee culture are
also employments well adapted for
those advanced In life who need to
make work remunerative.
The main points for the aged to
consider are: To avoid disease and
premature failure of strength, not by
Increase of food and stimulants, as Is
often advised, but by cutting down
and simplifying the diet In proportion
to the decreased wenr and tear of tis
sue, so that the Intake will not exceed
the output; to still maintain nn Inter
est In current thought and activities,
and to select some occupation suited
to their physical strength and their
previous training and skill.
The secret of a healthy, useful, ac
tive old age is to know how to wear
out life's waning energies normally,
not to exhaust them prematurely by
overwork, or, worse still, waste them
by the rusting of needless Inactivity.
There would seem to bo little need
In old age of destitution and depend
ence on the county, were all the work
ing classes to plan for a home In the
country nnd a few acres of land, by
snvlng money uselessly spent for such
articles ns tea, coffee, tobacco and al
cohol, to say nothing of other Injuri
ous table luxuries. Hy a wise econ
omy In the expenditure of money, nnd
rntlonal Investment In a home, the
old working man and woman would
find themselves with a fund of health
and strength equal to their day, and
when no longer able to compete with
a younger generation, they would
still have useful, remunerative occu
pation on their own premises.
Shut Your Mouth.
Shut your mouth. Breathe through
your nose. Never allow yourself,
ayg a medical writer, unless positive
ly necessary, to breathe through your
mouth. The nose Is made to breathe
through. It Is provided with hairs to
sift the dust out of the air. It Is pro
vided with warming plates (turbinat
ed bones) to temper the air. It Is
provided with apparatus for furnish
ing moisture to the air. All of this Is
quite essential before the air Is drawn
Into the lungs.
