A PROCLAMATION. Paine's Celery Compound the National Remedy. Endorsed by Leaders in Every Walk of Life. Present Wonderful Demand the Result of Merit. House of Representatives, Jefferson City. Mo., Sept. 2, 1901. Wells & Richardson Co., Gentlemen: Paine's celery compound is the great national family remedy. I can cheerfully recommend it. Very truly yours, EDWARD McKENXY. Since the day when the great surgeon and practitioner, Prof. Edward E. Phelps, M. D., LL. D., announced the discovery of the formula of Paine's celery com pound and first prescribed it with in '!>le success in cases of nervous pros tration, insomnia, indigestion, rheuma tism, and other diseases that have their origin In a disordered nervous system— HON. EDWARD M< KENNY. the demand for this one remedy has gone on steadily increasing, until to-day throughout e\*ery civilized country, more bottles of the remedy are prescribed by physicians and used by those who are siok, than of probably all other prepared remedies combined. The formula of Paine's celery compound —which Prof. Phelps freely gave to the in< lical profession—ranks in importance ii the medical world with the anti-toxins and anesthetics. Its discovery marks a new era in the practice of meJiiiut 1, as the discovery of ether marked a new era in the practice of surgery. The above unsolicited testimonial from the Hon. Edward McKenny, is one of thousands which might be published. In calling for Paine's celery compound, *ure that no quack medicine of pat il name is palmed off on you in its stead. FIGPRUNE Cereal A. perfect cereal coffee of delicate flavor and fragrant aroma. The blending of California figs and prunes with well ripened grain makes a fruit and grain coffee far superior to any other cereal beverage. By our process all the delight ful flavor of the fruit and healthful strength of the grain is retained. Tastes like coffee—looks like coffee. Healthful —nutritious. Boil from 3 to 1O minutes only ALL GROCERS SELL FIGPRUNE CEREAL UNCOMFORTABLE SHOES N'.'ver wear a shoe that pinches the heel. Never "wear a shoe or boot co large in the heel that tbe foot is not kept in place. Never wear a shoe or boot that has depres sions la any part of the sole to drop any joint or bearing below the level plane. Never wear a shoe with a sole turning up very much at the toes, as this causes the tfords on the upper part of the foot to con tract. Never wear a shoe that presses up into the hollow of the foot. Never have the top of the boots tight, as it interferes with the action of the calf muscles, making one walk badly, and spoils the shape of the ankle. Never wear a short stocking, one which after bring washed is not at least one-half inch longer than the foot. Bear in mind that stockings snrink; be ijure that they will allow your toes to spread out at. the extreme ends, U this keeps the joints in place and makes a strong and attractive foot. FROZEN TOMATOES. The gelatin added to strained tomatoes to make tomato jelly gives it a flavor that many persons do not like. The tomato juice may be frozen Instead, if preferred. It should be seasoned with lemon juice, cloves and pap rika, sweetened very slightly, and frozen In molds. A thick mayonnaise is served with this salad. Spaulding & Co.

Woman's World THE ROYAL YACHT Queen Alexandria Assisted in the Selection of the Colors. SIMPLICITY IS THE KEYNOTE The Kins'!) Experience and Taate Were ti Valuable Aid to the Decorator*. The royal yacht of the king and queen of England has just been completed. The queen made a personal selection of most of the colors and materials. Throughout the ship, the rooms and corridors, with a few exceptions, are paneled in enameled white, and no treatment could be clestaer, brighter or more captivating. The neces sary warmth of color is obtained in the furniture, carpets and draperies. In sev eral ofthe principal rooms blue is the dominant color note. It is found, in dif ferent shades, in most of the carpets, forming a rich and beautiful foundation, which contrasts brilliantly with the white walls. The private suites of the king and queen are arranged on one side of the corridor, in the fore part of the vessel. In the king's private stateroom, the walls are enameled in white and the carpet is a rich blue, matched in the blue morocco of the chairs. A white chimney piece in one angle, with an antique brass fender, gives a note of picturesquenesa to the room; and the two porthole windows are made, by an ingenious device, to con tribute to the decorative effect. All the furniture is of richly grained mahogany, slightly inlaid with other woods; the hangings are of a finely patterned silk, and the metal work is of gilt bronze, specially designed. The electrical fit tings, including table lamps, wall brack ets, center light and cigar and sealing wax lighters, are also of original design. Every convenience for the display of pho tographs, portraits and the other personal souvenirs with which the king likes to surround himself, is provided. The fur niture comprises chairs of the Queen Anne type, an early Georgian book case, a writ ing table and a couch, and al the details are en suite, even the beautiful blotter cases, ornamented with the royal crown In silver, being strictly in keeping with the general note of the upholstering. Adjacent to this room is the king's bath room and dressing-room. The walls are panelled in sycamore with a delicate inlay of darker wood. Tfhe onyx washing table and tesselate'd lloor are noticeable feat ures. The king's bedroom has a swinging bedstead, which is severely simple. It is of silver-plated metal, no draperies or hangings being used. At each side are tables and convenient shelves. The furni ture in ttis room is of satiuwcod; the metal work is silver-plated; the carpet is of English make and specially woven, and all the curtains and hangings are of chintz. The queen's bedroom Is somewhat larger than the king's and consequently lends itself to a more luxurious quality. It is decorated in the purest Adams style, a favorite of the decorators, Messrs. War ing, who also had charge of the fittings for the Ophir, the yacht of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall. It is panelled in white, and has a canopied bed with draper ies suspended from the celling. The fit tings in this and in the queen's bathroom are extremely dainty and delicate. The furniture is of beautifully grained satin wood with yilverert fittings and it consists of an elegant dressing table with glass top, a corner secretaire surmounted with a little china cabinet, fitted wardrobes and Adams chairs. The scheme of color is green, the silk hangings and curtairs and the uphols'iery constituting a soft and agreeable harmony. The coverlet of the bed has an elaborately worked monogram of her majesty with a crown. The queen's dressing room, also Adams in style, con tains a beautiful bath, an inlaid natinwood dressing table with front and side mirrors, and in addition there is a cheval glass forming a movable panel in the wall, which can be adjusted to any angle. On the other sido of the corridor, and exactly opposite the royal sleeping apart ments, is the royal drawing room, an apartment of noble proportions, exquisite ly decorated with fine detail, in sympathy with the character of the Adams style, with a leaning to Louis XVI. The walls, where not pierced with three windows, are pannelled in white, the furniture be ing of exquisite hand-painted satinwood, and the hangings are of blue silk. On the sea side there is a large pedestal writing table, flanked with two small semi-cir cular tables. At the end opposite to the Interesting fireplace is a grand piano. Bookcases, comfortable lounge seats, and a charmingly designed oval table form part of the equipment; and in the differ ent corners are some of the finest exam ples of the upholsterers' art, in the way of chairs, seats, etc. Two bed rooms, one of which may be used as a dressing room, are appropriated to distinguished guests. In these rooms the same style is carried out; the carpets are of the finest pile; the furniture is con structed of a rarely-used and much-neg lected wood, bird's-eye maple, the com bination of which with the darker, richly colored woods gives a very fresh and sparkling effect. Chintz hangings are again used; the finely-shaped candle sticks and other metal work are silvered, and the ceilings slightly ornamented. A special suite of rooms has been as signed to the use of the Princess Victoria. This consists of bed room with bath and dressing rooms. The walls of the bed room are covered with a delicate chintz above the pannelled white dado. The color note of the fine blue carpet Is just suggested both in the chintz and in the canopied drapery of the bed. There are also a number of delightful cabins for the lords and ladies in attendance on their majesties. Each is treated with a differ ent scheme, and chintz is freely used. In the after part of the main deck is situated the dining-room for the royal suite. This room, in the late Georgian style, is, in order to accommodate itself to the shape of the stern, nearly semi circular in plan, with sloping walls very much like the quarter-deck rooms of an old man-of-war. The sideboards, dining table (curved to follow the plan), and book cases are of light oak; the uphol stering of the splat-backed dining arm chairs is in crimson morocco. The royal staircase, which leads to the upper deck, is of noble and dignified pro portions, of a somewhat rich Georgian character. It is wide, in one flight and of easy ascent. The sconce wall lights of the corridor ere of silvered bronze, the ceiling is divided with ribs, and at the far end access is given to the smoking room, three sides of which are windowed. This apartment, which is rather of a Chippendale character, is paneled with fine, dark mahogany right up to the cell ing; and the book case, the coffee, writing and card tables and luxurious lounges, with coverings in deep royal red leather, are also of rich mahogany. Mention should be made of the fine Persian car pet; also of the Chippendale chairs, copied from a fine old model. The bel lied front of the chimney piece, with its dog grate and rossa antique marble slips, gives an added eighteenth century note to a delightful room. The state dining-room Is an apartment of fine dimensions, in the true English Adams style, and Is paneled in white from floor to ceiling and accented with a pilas ter treatment. There are no fewer than twenty-six windows to this room, and two large skylights, having a special dec orative treatment in harmony with the general style. The furniture, including a circular sideboard fitted roupd the mast, is of the Sheraton type, made of satin wood, inlaid, with darker woods. The window curtains are of rich silk. The ceiling is delicately ornamented in relief, and in a manner which gives artistic sup port, to the oval openings of the sky lights. Forty-four persons can dine at a table which is interesting for its com bination of elegant contour and solid workmanship. There are three fine Ter ahan carpets on the floor, one being an antique throne carpet. The chairs and settees are covered in fine blue morocco. The upper part of the chimney piece is noticeable for the old-world treatment of a convex mirror, flanked with a couple of Wedgwood plaques. A splendid contrast is afforded to the white paneling of these staterooms by the use of a rich, highly polished mahogany for the doors. FAMOUS PEARLS The Duchess of Cumberland's necklace is a rare string of pearls more than six feet In length, with every pearl exactly matched in shape, size and color. The most famous necklaces, all of them made of pearls, are owned by the Empress of Germany, Dowager Queen Margherita or Italy and the Duchess of Cumberland, sister of Queen Alexandra. These necklaces are so formed of strings of pearls, united by dia mond ilasps, that they can be shaped Into collars, which fashion was set by Queen Alexandra as Princess of Wales. The German empress has the finest pearl necklace in existence. One of the strings formerly belonged to the ex-Queen of Naples, and another adorned the image of the Virgin of Atakha. The entire necklace is said to be worth $500,000. Queen Margherita's collection of pearls was so large that she could not wear them all at once, and as pearls lose color if not always exposed to the light, she gave most of them to Queen Helene, and many to her ladies in waiting when she went Into mourn ine. King Humbert gave his queen a row cf pearls on the birth of their son, the present King Victor Emmanuel, and for over thirty years, until his death, added a row ev^ry year. The dowager queen is senti mentally attached to pearls. TO BOIL VEGETABLES. A cooking teacher's directions for boiling vegetables, even onion, cabbage or cauli flower, without filling the house with an un int srceli, -are to coyer the vegetables with boiling salted water and stand the kettle a.^ide, where they cannot boil rapidly again, un\il tender. It Is the steam, according to this authority, that Is driven off by rapid boiling, that carries away not only the odor uut the flavor of vegetables. THE MJ.X.XEAPOLIS JOUIIiS'AL.

The general interest in the laundry ques tion has led two college women to undertake an experiment, hoping thereby to prove whether or not a laundry conducted on the best hygienic principles can be made to pay. Other well-condut-ted laundries have been managed by women, but this one is probably the first to be carried on by educated women on thoroughly) scientific principles. In order to have everything as it should be from the very start, these two young women had the building erected under their own supervision, according to their ideas of a model laundry. A pleasant suburban street was chosen, in a neighborhood where there were no smoky chimneys to inter fere with outside drying. The structure is of wood, two stories high, with forty win dows in the upper story, where the laundry work is carried on. Twenty women are em ployed, and the strictest neatness is observed in "their dress. The irons are heated on gas heaters and the temperature, even near the little stoves," is moderate and comfortable. After the clothes have been recorded and marked, very little indelible ink being used, nearly everything, except the flannels and colored goods, is put into the washers. The washer is a large machine with a cylinder making three revolutions in one direction, then three in another. It is so constructe-.l that the clothes which are put Into it receive ! an abundance of water. The cylinder re | volves inside a tank, and the water is forced through large holes within the cylinder with sufficient pressure to do away with any ne cessity of rubbing the clothes. In all, nine different waters are used, or several more than the number employed In most other i laundries No garment is put into the washer until it has been carefully examined to see ■whether is needs mending, and if it is found to be so torn that "a stitch in time will save nine," the rent is carefully attended to. Flannels, colored articles, and delicate things are washed by hand, and great care is taken to prevent shrinking and fading. The clothes are dried by centrifugal force in a revolving machine such as is often found in modern i laundries. All' the ironing, excepting collars ' and cuffs, is done by hand. Tho various 1 i kinds of articles are given to specialists. j Three women, for example, do nothing but . shirt polishing. Some women devote them selves to table linen, and all work as if they enjoy their task. They have a ten-hour day and are well paid. They have also every in centive to perfect themselves in their work. Aside from all other considerations this laundry is worth observing, because its com plete success will mean that a new occupation is open to the educated woman. These two Smith college graduates, at the end of their first year of business, feel that they have proved the feasibility of managing a laundry established on hygenic principles. They have two horses and wagons constantly employed, and, in addition to their twenty or thirty working-women, they have three men in their service within the laundry, a bookkeeper, a foreman and an engineer.

She has had two of her paintings purchased by the trustees of the Chantrey Bequest, one entitled "Colt Hunting in New Forest," and the other called "Lord Dun donald's Dash Upon Ladysmith." Only two other women painters have been similarly honored by the Chantrey trustees. Miss Kemp-Welch and her only sister, Edith, also an artist, who has exhibited at the academy, were educated entirely at home. They had a free, happy, open-air life, and a small men agerie of pet animals served as models for the budding artists. Neither wealth nor in fluence came their way; the elder sister achieved her almost phenomenal success en tirely unaided by either. Miss Elizabeth Geary of Cleveland is rapidly gaining the reputation of being one of the most artistic bookbinders in the country. Miss Geary served her apprenticeship for two years with Mfss Birkenruth, of London, one of the most accomplished instructors in the work. Then she opened a studio in Cloveland, where she does all her binding, designing and Illuminating. At present she has in hand several volume 3 which she intends to send to the Scribner exhibition in New York in the fall. Candace Wheeler has written a book, "Con tent in a Garden," in which she views nature with the eye of a lover as well as of an artist. She tells how in girlhood sne carried lilies to the poet Bryant, at his Long Island home, and adds: "It was from those wonderful blossoms that I learned to know and value the individuality of flowers. Of course every one knows that one rose will differ from another in size and color, and one Illy from another in fidelity to the type, but I painted the portraits of some of these Egyptian queens before I learned that one flower differed from another in expression. Studying them hour after hour with a painter's eye, copying the features in shape and shadow, from the golden central crown tQ, the pink-tinted curve of the outer leaf, I learned that they differed as one human face differs from another. When I placed myself and my canvas before the crowding mass of bloom each morning, no matter how the individuals had shifted their places over night, those which I had painted the day before were unmistakable. No in dividual face in a crowd could detach itself more perfectly from the mass than did these lily-faced creatures." A PEACH BPQNGB. A peach sponge is a delicate, cool dessert. Boil together for one moment half a pint ot sugar and half a pint of water. To this add one full pint of pared and stoned yellow peaches. Cook three minutes, then press through a sieve and add the juice of one lem on. Stir into this one-half a box of gelatin that has coaked for an hour In a little water. Stir all this till the mixture begins to thick en, then stir in the stiffly beaten whites of three eggs. When smooth, and of an even consistency, pour into a mold and place on ice. Make a sauce of the yolks of the eggs, a pint of milk, three spoonfuls of sugar and the grated rind of a lemon. This should also be ice cold when served WOMEN AS TUNERS Piano Tuning Gives the Gentler Sex a New Field. IT REQUIRES NERVOUS TENSION Few Occupations for Women Yield Such Immediate Results for a Small Outlay. Among the industrial activities recently in vaded by women is that of piano-tuning, and results are proving that they are as well adapted to the work as men. It is claimed by some tuners, indeed, that a woman has an advantage, because it is usually the house wife who decides who shall keep the piano in repair, and that Judicious friendliness and chat, with a reasonable amount of tact from the tuner, will win her client for her friend and steady patron. "Although it is an innovation for women to enter this business," said a man who had launched several women tuners, "I have found that they become quite as proficient as men. The work is not adapted to a nerv ous person, as listening to the tone waves while the tuning is in progress is exhausting. Any one who has had a piano tuned will re call that the tuner, whether man or woman, must have the room empty before beginning, and it requires nervous tension and concen tration to do the work well; but any woman who has calm nerves and good health will find the work easy and profitable. "Men, as a rule, pick up the business while working in piano factories, where they see and hear the tuner 'chipping' a piano, as it is termed. 'Chipping' consists of picking at the strings of a piano which has just been put together, and tightening them up before sending it out of the factory. Of course, it is tuner thoroughly later. From wotching and imitating these tuners, other tuners start out as qualified. "The course of instruction includes a thor ough knowledge of the construction of the in strument, and to this end the piano is taken to pieces and put together under the super vision of the teacher. This enables the pupil to understand repairing, which is one of the most profitable portions of the work. Any part of a piano can be obtained from the fac tory, and when one understands how to put it in, she can take full charge of a piano, from tuning to repairing. In learning to tune, the pupil starts from what is known as 'middle C,' and after tuning that octave, the rest of the piano is tuned from it A knowledge of piano-playing is not necessary. "The best way for a woman to work up a trade is for her to go to some nearby vil lage, carrying her tuning 'kit' in. a hand satchel. This 'kit' costs about $16. On her arrival she should go to each house and send in her card with her name and business on it. Tuners do not meet with the rebuffs that book agents encounter. The business «.s stated on the card, and if there is a piano that needs tuning, the mistress of the house is at once interested. The tuner can usu ally effect an arrangement to call period ically and keep the piano 'on edge,' as it Is termed; that is, thoroughly tuned up. To keep a piano in perfect condition it should be tuned every three months; but those who cannot afford this will arrange for every six months or oncp each year. The first cus tomer will usually give the tuner the name 3 of some of her friend 9 who may want their pianos tuned, and thus a good trade is worked up in that village, and the tuner will there after make the rounds of her pianos at stated intervals. Proceeding in this manner in one village after another, the tuner gradually se cures a long list of customers. "The prices paid for tuning a piajio range from $1 to $2.50. The average tuner get« $2 for each piano, and four pianos constitute a good day's work. One hour and a half is required for each piano. Two pianos a day woud be a email estimate, and at that rata the tuner would make 124 a week, aside from repairing, which comes incidentally, and will frequently run up to $35 for a small piece of work. But few of the occupations for women yield such immediate results for a small outlay, and by keeping a record of her pianos and covering the ground systematical ly, as well as doing her work conecientiously, the woman tuner can build up a business which will render her self-supporting and afford her an independence regarding the dis posal of her time which only a few occupa tions would enable her to enjoy."

Felt will be much used for the smartest kinds of hats, nevertheless velvet-covered hats take the lead, and something also will be done with fancy materials, states the August Millinery Trade Review. In this line some rather curious novelties have been achieved, such as the imprison ing of angora hair between two layers of net, producing what appears to be at a slight distance a sort of mottled felt. Truss of angora are also paid between a layer of felt and net; in both cases the presence of the net is hardly to be de tected save by the touch. Whether these fancy materials will be used to any great extent is a question, since the effect obtained hardly repays the price of production. For building up smart hats felt is generally required in the form of plateaux. These are provided in thin, smooth felt, in mixed rough and long-haired felts, more often in grays, beiges and whltey-browns, than in posi tive colors. Sometimes a single plateau will be used, the. center drawn up into the form of a loose, full crown, the brim shaped in horizontal fold in front, and fluted down into the nape of the neck be hind. Or several plateaux will be placed one over the other. When this is the case choice is generally given to smooth felt, each plateau bordered with a stitched strap or hem. Velvet for covering hats is mostly chosea in deep, rich tints, among which greens predominate largely. Black velvet hats promise also to be very much worn. So far it would seem as if combinations of two positive colors would be eschewed. But combinations of one positive color and several shades of gray, beige, light brown, or cream, white or black are very much favored. Black hats, however, will gen erally be trimmed with the same com binations of black; and white, so fash ionable at the present date, will probably cease co be the vogue once regular fall millinery becomes seasonable.
