"Billy Is the most destructive child I
ever saw," said Billy's mother to me one
morning last March.
"Destructive, certainly,"' I answered
frankly, for I had noticed a thing or
two myself and believed I knew the cause
thereof.
"Billy has not enough employment, of
the right sort, out of school hours. It
is the idle child whose nervous energy
finds an outlet in destructiveness," I sug
gested. Billy's mother thought it over.
"I believe you arc right," she said
finally, "but what on earth am I to do?"
"There is the garden." I said. "What
child does not love, a garden? Where is
there one who will not delight In spad
ing and hoeing the fresh, fragrant earth;
the after interest of planting seeds, and
again the still later joy of witnessing
the definite result of his work?
"I believe Billy would exult in a gar
den of his own; a place where his own
spontaneity and creative power count for
something; where he feels the weight of
responsibility and the incentive of re
sults, together with the pleasure of
profit."
"For goodness sake!" exclaimed Billy's
mother. "How on earth is one to have
a garden without ground?"

HOW TO MAKE THE
POPULAR PIPINGS
As pipings are so fashionable and form
a part of the finish of almost every
gown, it Is well to know how they should
be made. Fcr a quarter of an inch pip
ing cut the material into bias strips an
inch and a quarter wide, and for wider
pipings increase the wjdth accordingly.
Fold these strips through the center
lengthwise and baste close to the fold.
Under the part to be piped lay the fold
ed strip, allowing a quarter of an inch
to show, and three-quarters of an inch
for the seam. After the piping is basted
in place stitch It as close to the edge as
possible. When a narrower piping is
wanted the goods is cut accordingly; but
be sure to see that there Is a good three
eighths of an inch allowed for the seam.
LITTLE BEDTIME TALES

I.en, the Fisherman's Son.
It was early morning and the little
fishing village where Ixm lived was cold
and bleak. Already the early toilers of
the sea were astir, for It was time to
be off to the fishing grounds. Through
the gloom of the early day you conld
have seen the figures of men carrying
great baskets down to the waterside,
where small fishing vessels bobbed up
and down on the waves as if impatient
to be oft.
Away off across the water In the.
eastern sky. a flash of lisht appeared.
The sun likewise was getting ready for
the day. And then from out the little
fisher hut a bit farther back from the
sea than the rest, came Lcn and his
father.
"My, we are late this morning, fa
ther." said the little boy. 'The sun Is
all ready to get up."
"There she comes now," said the man,
as a blood red ball of fire suddenly
popped into view just over the horizon.

that Is needed. It Is not necessary to
have a largo plot to hold the Interest
of a child. There is quite enough room
at the end of your back yard for the
cultivation of such vegetables as lettuce,
parsley, radishes, and onions. But you
must let it be Billy's very own. Help
him with suggestions where it is neces
sary, but don't meddle. Individual own
ership will create Interest in Billy's work
and make him appreciative and consid

also give him an interest in the upbuild

through his own work, a just Idea of the
proper value of things about the house,

It will lessen his destructlveness. It will
be a source of wholesome exercise, and

"There is one Important point." I went
on to suggest, "let Billy understand, all

will be complete. That you will buy
his vegetables from him at market value
when they have matured."

ITOVEL PARTY GIVEN
TO BRIDE-TO-BE
A young women, much beloved In her
neighborhood, was to be married and
this delightful shower was arranged:
She had grown up from babyhood on
the same street, and one of her mother's
friends suggested that the neighbors con
tribute the price of a dozen napkins and
tablecloth.
Then they had a thimble party and the
linen was hemmed and monogramed. The
bride was perfectly delighted.
Try this when planning a "linen"
shower. It was no more costly than
for each guest to give a separate bit of
tinen.
The same idea has been carried out In
sheets and pillow cases, also towels.

all about him.
And the catch that 'day was such a
large one. All day long the littlp boy
by his father's side hauled over th"
side of the vessel the glistening fish and
they sang songs the while.
"We will make, a good sum by this
catch." said the father at the close of
day. and I.cn was happy because he
knew that he had played a part.
There Is really and truly just such a

and while he talks of the plans for this
year's garden (for which he has already
broken the ground) one realizes that the
young mind has quickened to an appre
ciation of the beauty of every little
thing that grows.
Ills father has moved this March to
the suburbs, where Billy has a little
more ground for the enlargement of
his garden plans.
And as for Billy's mother .
"Why," slie told mc the other day,
"It has simply been a wonderful Influ
ence. Billy is like a different child.

In Washington how much It means to
them (and to their children) to make
out-of-door work attractive to their boys

not have a little plot of ground In the
back which will be big enough for the
small vegetables." she ended, thinking
of the very small plot of ground which
proved sufficient for Billy's garden last
year.
HINTS TO THOSE
BUYING PLUMES
One who has had considerable experi
ence in handling plumes gives some gen
eral suggestions to those who buy these
handsome hat trimmings.
The first thing to notice is the quill it
self: this should be in one piece, and
should be pliable and have a high glows.
Next pull out the flues. The longer
and more pliable they are, the better
value they are.
When It Is a black plume that is under
consideration, examine it carefully In a
strong light, and select one with a high
gloss, for if It is dull black or on the
brownish cast, the feather is of Inferior
quality or has been poorly dyed.
Frills of Lace.
One-sided frills of finest Ilnon lace and
embroidery are made to button In with a
front buttoning blouse, or are attached
to a band that will run down the front
of a blouse, buttoning in the back. Some
times these frills arc accompanied by
plaited frill collars finishing the collar
less blouse neck or by a straight stand
ing collar or stock.

Few Know Correct Method
of Keeping.
TIME PIECE IN GOOD CONDITION
If the Orrner Has Neither Fob,
Cbntelnlne, ITor Chain the "Watch
Should Be Pinned Firmly to the
Dress. Not Carried Ijoosely in a
Handbag; as Some Do.
A slight knowledge of the works of a
watch and the care it should receive
would keep many good dollars in the
pockets of people who for the slightest
cause take their watches to the jewelers.
The man who repairs watches says:
"Never get into the habit of holding the
stem and winding the watch; always hold
the watch and wind the stem."
And if notice is taken of the people
who possess watches it will be seen m
many cases they grasp It firmly by the
stem and proceed to twist the watch
until it is wound or until something
breaks.
Another thing to be remembered Is that
the watch should be wound at pretty
nearly the same time every day, as it
is bad for a timepiece to be wound too
often or allowed to run down entirely.
Carry It in Handbasr.
Stany women have a habit of carry
ing the tiny watch In their handbag:
where It knocks around, and if the bag
Is dropped the watch generally stops with
an aggrieved tick.
If the owner has no fob. chatelaine
or chain, then it should be pinned firm
ly to the dress. The leather wristband
Is another cause of many broken springs,
since the delicate hair-like wire is more
than likely to break at the sharp Jar it
receives when the wrist comes in con
tact with one of the hundred things It
is liable to bump against.
And. lastly, once a year the watch
should be sent to the jeweler's to be
cleaned and regulated, and If this is done,
and the watch handled carefully, there
will be no trouble with Its "works."
MOTOR TOGGERY
SEEN IN THE SHOPS
Is a Special Style of Cos
tuming. Spring motor toggery has'now appeared
in some of the shops devoted to this
special style of costuming. If signs come
true this season is to see more, attrac
tive fashions for this form of sport than
have ever before been in vogue.
Some of the new straw motor hats
which are being shown for the Southern
trade are both picturesque and becom
ing. One of the new models is a white
Milan straw in a modified English walk
ing hat shape. It is faced with red
straw and trimmed only with a straw
buckle at one side, in which is twisted
some linen fringe.
Another hat is a helmet of linen colored
hair braid with a cockade of chiffon of
the same shade. A big grass linen hood
in a picturesque shape is lined with dark
blue. There is a dark brown straw bon
net of fancy braid, very picturesque, in
a poke shape and trimmed with two pink
posies, one over each ear.
The coats which are being shown for
the spring are of pongee, dark blue serge
and checked cheviots. They are not so
large and all enveloping as many motor
garments. Almost all are rather close
fitting, the upper part especially so. The
skirts of the coat are set on the upper
part like a man's paddock ulster.
Household Hints.
An excellent way of cleaning lamp-
chimneys is to hold the glass over the
spout of a kettle of boiling water until
it becomes well steamed, then polish with
a clean dry cloth, and the glass will be
beautifully bright.
To remove grease from a stove try this
plan: Dip a cloth in dry soot and rub
this over the greasy parts, then apply
the blacklead. and the spots will at once
disappear.
To Keep Puddings Finn.
When making boiled puddings of any
kind, try putting a piece of greased paper
over the top before the cloth is put on.
This renders the cloth mnch easier to
wash, and keeps the pudding nico and
firm.
