v 4 The extraordinary size of many of the new hats and the profuse amount it t. limning on them would aeem to be the limit of extravagance In these (wo directions. Yet we need not look further back than the source and in epilation of our present modes, to find ourselves far behind the extremes of thuKt? bj'Koiie days. Rome of the hats worn by Marie Antoinette were made f white straw braids, "the brims of which were three and a half feet across, aid the crowns Seven and a half to nine inches high." These measurements certainly look imH)sslble and our present day hats dwindle Into commonplace Insignificance by comparison. Our author tells us these hats "were profusely trimmed with field flowers, such as marguerites, bluets, (Hippies and grasses, ami Mulshed with large bows und ties of many colored plaid ribbons, nine Inches wide. 'Nell Uwynne, the actress, who amused Charles II. of Knpland, wore hats t ali to measure four feet across wiili tttiaight brims, small crowns and loaded vjth larf.',e-f,lzed cat rich plumes." , Kven In the matter of plumes we have not distanced the merry Nell. Mury Stuart, QMn of Scotland, the romantic beauty whose character liss pi-cven such a boon to the disputatious historians, bequeathed to posterity a bonnet form that in unexcelled In grace to this day. The Marie Stuart bon-n-t is too familiar to need description. It is a stately and beautiful headdress which time will leave unchanged. Home Remedies for Minor Ills and Afflictions There arc numerous minor ills which appear so Insignificant as to render the calllns of a physician un necessary, and yet these ills, neglect ed, may in the course of time spread to serious proportions. If simple home treatment does not eause the trouble to disappear, then more skilled knowledge must be con sulted. - Fur instance, tartar may suddenly be discovered in some crevice of the teeth, it will appear sometimes in spite of faltliful brushing. Should It have collected in any quantity there must be a general housecleanlng at first Take an orange stick and dip the end not too sharp In a strong solu tion of peroxide of hydrogen (it is known by several names dloxygen, hydrogen peroxide, hydrogen dioxide, etc.). Then dip the wet point In finely powdered pumice stone and scrub the parts til) perfectly white. Each morn ing brut.h the teeth with a wash com posed of one part dloxygen and four parts water. Moi'.tb sores, ulcers, gum bolls, etc., create much annoyance at times. Use freely the wash above mentioned, but if a quick cure is rteidred for an ulcer, drop into the center of it a pinch of powdered alum. It will be bitter and disagreeable for a few minutes, but the ulcer will disappear almost Imme diately. A pinch of borax In a glass of water, used as a wash, is also effective and harmless. In the meantime, look well to the condition of the stomach, where generally lies the source of the trouble. Speaking of the stomach. Its disor ders very often are evidenced by a fetid breath. Should this be from im purities or disturbing gases, charcoal will absorb them very effectually. Take It In tablet form frequently dur ing the day. It Is on the chilly days of winter that the "frog" makes known his un welcome presence In one's throat. It Is often, too. that a husky voice is most untimely, as, for Instance, when there is singing or reading or much speaking to be done. U'nion juice Is used by some to clear the voice, but its effects are only temporary, and it Is a rather severe treatment for the delicate membranes of the throat. The white of.an egg beaten to a stiff froth is an old fashioned but an excellent remedy to relieve such congestions, and if so desired lenmn Juice may be added to It. I'sually a cup of hot black coffee is effective. Another remedy Is a tablespoonful of glycerine In two tablenpoonfuls of whisky, and, still an other, Inhaling the steam from a weak f olutionf ammonia and boiling water. For strained or Inflamed eyes make a solution of boric acid and warm wa ter, or of hydrogen peroxide and warm water, and bathe the eyes by the use ' of an eye-cup. A medicine dropper Is good for this purpose, though rnore tedious to handle. - Marabou Scarves. The marabou neck ruffles are Im mensely smart They come In all widths and at all prices, the handsom est being the white ones to be worn around the. shoulders for dressy occa ulnnr. For luncheon rear they are charming with a gown of pale gray and with a hat trimmed with a mars- Vu scarf. Women Farmers. On the farms of Norway during planting time more women than men ire sren In Ibe fields. m& New Flowered Cretonnes Good For Fancy Work "I never did any fancy work till these lovely flowered cretonnes came In," said one member of the sewing bee, as she took another stitch in the queer-looking bag she was making. "I have to sew on something that gets done quickly." "That is Just what I'm looking for," broke in the associate member, wh was milling the latest novel to the others while they wwked. "Put that book down." commanded the active member, "and I'll show you how to make a pair of cretonne bed slippers this very minute." The girl of the cretonne bag volunteered to ! lend a yard of material that she couldn't use that alternoon, and . the hostess brought forth a common old knitted s'.lpper as a pattern. Then the active member cut out a pair of cretonne tops by the old slipper and told the associate member to seam them up the back. A lining of plain cotton cloth was cut the same size, the edges turned in and stitched on the sewing machine, and the slippers were ready to be overhunded to a pair of cork soles. "Now get some coarse linen lace next time you go down town." com manded the active member, "and sew it round the tops." It was done so quickly that every girl there resolved to go Into cretonne fancy work immediately. At the next meeting one was found making flow ered bags for soiled handkerchiefs. A yard of the material was gathered at each end on to an embroidery ring wound with ribbon to match. W"heu the rings were held together the cre tonne formed a delightfully capacious bag. Another was making small table covers, with centers of the cretonne and a broad border of plain sateen to match the color of the flowers. A third was making a set of over draperies for her sister's chamber win dows, to be hung straight down over the old muslin curtains. Still another had Invented a set of bureau scarfs, with an edge of coarse Cluny lace. "And the beauty of It all Is that you can do most of it on the machine," said the associate member, as she basted busily at a cretonne pillow cover. Fashion for Children. For a small child about four years of age there is a charmingly simple plaited frock of the fine navy blue serge, witti a smart patent leather belt in black or red, and ornamental stltchings on the collar and cuffs. An other pretty plaited frock which would fit a glrr about ten years of 'age is made of green and blue tweed piped with green velvet, and this is worn with a loose belt of tan-colored cloth that looks like suede kid. The dainty vest ia of creamy guipure and Valen ciennes lace Insertions arranged alter nately in stripes, and there is a little cravat bow of green velvet at the throat. For early autumn wear out of doors there is a 1 cat costume of navy blue sergn with a plaited skirt and a Norfolk coat. . Satin Blouses. Satin blouses In the darker shades are charming mnde up with heavy white lace chemisettes and decorated with Jeweled, gold or silver buckles; and as these separate waists are often worn with the cloth visiting costume their tint matches the sat It) hat rathe than that of the gown. i KANSAS HAPPENINGS Soma Big Corn Yields, .'olin VV.
