The simply made foulard gown developed in serviceable
colors is a necessary part of the wardrobe of every woman;
these little frocks fill so many wants, and arc useful for so
many and various occasions. This was developed in the
serviceable navy blue, spotted with white. The skirt, with
slightly high waistline, was cut with deep yoke below which
was a pleated flounce. The bodice was cut in pinafore effect,
with a soft fold of the goods on either shoulder, edged by
narrow ruffles of the same. A wide collar of lace made a
dainty finish at the neck. The sleeves are rather a departure,
having two comparatively large puffs above the elbow and
finished with a wide cuff of lace and folds.
Nourishing Lotions Made at Home From Pure In

gredients Give Strength to-Hair,
Instead of resorting to dyes when the
hair becomes gray and loses the first
color of youth, why will' not women
adopt a course of treatment that will be
Improving and not injurious? As far as
I know there is no harmless dye, because
to "hold" a color the hair must be en
tisely freed of natural oils. And the ab
sence of these Immediately takes away
nourishment, and falling and breaking of
I the locks is a matter of a short time.
Scalp massage, brushing and carefully
selected tonics, to the contrary, may so
j Improve the condition as to bring the
, hair back to a most attractive state.
There is positively no excuse for the
"dead" aspect of so many women's heads,
for it is wholly due to carelessness in
one form or another.
Premature grayness, unless caused by
illness, may almost always be traced to
an absence of oils in the scalp. There
fore when a woman too young to lose the I
| natural color Jlnds that her tresses are j
changing she shall resort to applications
containing stimulating oils, or such In
gredients as nux vomica or Iron. For ex
ample, there is a mixture of an ounce
each of mercury oleate and oil of ergot.
This is to be perfumed with a few drops
' of oil <>f lavender and used when the
i hair is lusterless. Every niglit the
tresses should be divided into many
parts, into each line a little of the tonic
being applied, either with the linger lips
or a very small brush. Massaging must
then take place, going carefully over each
I section of the head. Massaging is not.
i as many persons seem to think, rubbing
the hair over the scalp, but is moving
the scalp on the skull, a process easily
accomplished by holding the lingers firm
ly, then bending them at the knuckles.
j Soda baths will r'cduce flesh, but some
I da not approve of Ihem. considering them
| weakening and decidedly harmful if there
I is any heart weakness. A po/nd of
bicarbonate of soda and three pounds of
sal soda are put into a tub of hot water.
In which the patient stays with the body
immersed for fifteen or twenty minutes,
adding more hot water as the bath
cools. After that it is necessary to lie
down between blankets to induce further
perspiration. This Is repeated daily, l?ut
hard phvslcial exercise and care in the
diet are silso essential.
Th* band of ribbon tied in a bow is
one of the prettiest garnitures for a
girl's head, and taking tills as a model.
I think an effective decoration could
be made for evening wear from a dainty
colored tulle. It would be fluffier looking
than the ribbon.
To make such a head ornament. on?
haif-inch hand of something stiff but
light (a' strand of straw would answer)
i could be covered with a thin silk In the
desired coloring, tulle the same shade
! to be shirred over it. adding as a finish
a rosette of the tulle. Elderly women
might like to adopt this in black tulle,
setting a rhlnestone button in the cen
ter of th?? rosette.
Even the tiniest tots are wearing col
ored frocks for afternoons this s-^ison.
1 saw recently a, group of little folk,
just learning to walk, and all of these
babies were dressed in daintily printed
* One infant wore a dress that was in
the style of a French frock, the long
full waist joined to an equally full and
short skirt by a band of tlie Roods piped
; r.-ilh the prevailing color in tlu? diniliy.
1 The square ncck was similarly finished
j ar.d piped bands confined the puff sleeves.
I The others wore pretty models, each be
i lne tool and ? omfortable.
; Thrt separate coat is more -fashionable
! tha i ever before.
j AH w:iite seems (o be in the backsround
I just at present.
This forces the outer covering of -tlie head
to move, stimulating circulation and
working the tonic into the glands.
The method of massaging la always the
same, and is by no means difficult. If
greater heed is given to one section than
to another it must be to that above the
temples, where the hair is apt to fall
first and to lose color soonest.
A lotion that is easier to apply because
there is less likelihood of the hair becom
ing greasy is made from half a dram
each of terebene, borax and sulphur and
three ounces of lavender water. It is
put on the same way as the first.
Decidedly more stimulating than either
of the foregoing, and for that reason
better when the hair is decidedly in a
dead condition, is a tonic made from one
quarter of an ounce of violet ammonia, a
gill of rectified spirits, an eighth of an
ounce of sublimed sulphur, a quarter of
an ounce of tincture of cantharldes, an
ounce of glycerin, an eighth of an ounce
of phosphate of lime and a quarter ot' an
ounce of tincture of cinchona. The sul
phur should be put into the spirits, add
ing the lime and tinctures, followed by
the glycerin, and the ammonia last. It
must be well shaken. ,
If the scalp Is in a delicate condition
this may be irritating, in which case it
can be diluted with an equal amount of
glycerin and water. Should it still irri
tate it must be put aside to use when the
surface is stronger.
Were tonic? to be employed regularly
when the woman is young, hair would be
I prettier with advancing age. An appli
cation that supplies food in usual condi
tions and is adapted to almost any scalp
is made from half an ounce of alcoholic
i tincture of canrharides, three-quarterf of
i an ounce each of spirits of rosemary,
glycerin and aromatic vinegar and an
ounce and a half of rose water. Tn mix
ing the glycerin is put in last. Tlua
should be applied nightly to the scalp.
Dainty -Tea Edibles.
Sandwiches, salads, cakes and creams
| comprise the principal menu of the smart
! lawn tea. And as the fete is outdoors
| everything is made as onia mental as pos
sible. Indeed, it is no4uncommon thing
; to deck meat dishes, and especially pats
of sweet butter, with rims of field flow
ers: and when nasturtiums are In season,
I since they are edible, they are put in
; many salads.
Herb Sandwiches.
These arc made of buttered bread of
various sorts, with the addition of such
herbs as are in season. Lettuce, pepper
grass, water cress, peppermint, chives,
;etc.. are all used, the tilling merely .salted
and pepercd. or mixed with mayonnaise.
jThe strongly flavored herbs are finely
minced and sprinkled lightly over one
buttered slice, and when the other slice
is put on the sandwich Is trimmed into
shape, no ragged end of green being al
lowed to show.
Other herbs which may be used in this
way are parsley, sorrel, chervil, dandelion,
basil, thyme, horseradish (the leaves), tar
ragon. etc. Chopped olives, green pickles
and curry powder may also be employed,
(iluten and graham bread go best with
the tilling containing mayonnaise.
Tellow Tomato Salad.
llere is a very blithe dish for the out
door tea. for, artistically arranged, the
golden vtsgetables are as pretty as a bou
quet. Choose the small, bright egg to
matoes, scald, peel carefully, chili and
arrange in a pointed pyramid on tender
lettuce leaves on a yellow or green dish.
! I'our over them Wench dressing or add a
; uai of mayonnaise when serving each
! ulate.
Vinegar will remove lime spot- and soot
from an open chimney. Remove ink
stains with milk, and after soaking up all
that seems possible, either sprinkle thick
lv with salt or wash with a pure white
soap. L'se a clcan brush and warm water.
The Folly of Usin
Raw Milk
Many careful homes have quit using raw milk. They are now serving milk
without germs in it. They are cooking with milk twice as rich as before.
They are saving half on their milk bills. Will you let us tell you why?
The demand for Van Camp's Milk now is
so great that we milk 20,000 cows.
Yet we could not supply one hundredth
part the demand if all people knew about it.
Do you suppose that people will buy germ
laden milk when they once find a milk that
is pure?
Do you suppose they will ever again cook
with half-milk when they learn how whole milk
tastes ?
Do you suppose they will buy milk from
day to day when thcj* know what it means
to have a cow in the kitchcn?
You won't?nor will any one?after once
proving these facts.
A Germless Milk
van Camp's is a germless milk.
Every cow is inspected?so are the men
who milk them. No tubercular cows, no dis
eased milkmen, convey their infections to
Van Camp's Milk.
Our dairies are sanitary. Our creameries,
where the milk is evaporated, are built with
out wood. We make a business of cleanli
Then the milk is sterilized after the cans
are sealed. Not a germ of any kind can re
main in it.
This milk is safe, and your milkman's milk'
isn't There are myriads of germs in every
drop of raw milk.
It is wrong to take such risks.
A Whole, Rich Milk
Van Camp'? i> simply rich Holstein milk,
with two-thirds the water evaporated. Noth
ing whatever is added. Nothing is subtracted,
save water.
Here you get the whole milk.
Your milkman's milk separates- You
either get too little solids or too little butter
It separates again when you get it. So
the milk used for cooking is rarely more than
a half milk.
Compare one milk dish made with Van
Camp's with one made with milkman's milk.
Note the difference in richness and flavor.
That will be enough to forever convert
you to the use of this whole, rich milk.
A Cow in the Kitchen
Then think how convenient.
Rich milk or cream whenever you want it.
No waiting for the milkman, no shortage,
no waste.
Yet Van Camp's is the cheaper.
,It is as thick as thick cream: so thick that
you add one part water (or coffee. Yet it
doesn't cost half your milkman's price for
Add two parts water and you have rich
milk. The cost of such milk, when you buy
Van Camp's by the case, is about six cents
per quart.
Then you have no waste?no milk left over.
Sometimes Van Camp's cuts off half on the
milk bills.
Think of paying the milkman twice what
you pay for such milk as this.
Safe for Children
When you serve Van Camp's to your chil
dren you don't serve sickness with it. When
you serve raw milk, you don't know.
Van Camp's has a slight almond flavor,
due to sterilization. It doesn't taste just like
taw milk.
Explain to the child that this flavor?de
licious but different?means that the milk it
Raw milk is just as unfit as raw meat.
Pasteurized milk is the only safe milk. Be
fore long, our laws will require it.
No Other Such Milk
Don't think of Van Camp's as condensed
milk. Condensed milk is half sugar. You
can't use it in cooking.
/And don't think that other evaporated
milks are as good as Van Camp's.
Analysis of Van Camp's shows about 8 per
cent of butter fat. That's because we urn
Holstein milk and take out two-thirds of the
water. ?
A milk with half of that water left in may
be called "evaporated." But it won't be as
rich as Van Camp's.
We are preparing for you the finest milk
in the world. Please be sure that you get

It Takes Nearly Eight Hundred Ac
countants and Clerks to Handle
the Enormous Business.
Money order transactions in thb post
' offices of the country have grown to so
large an extent in the last year or two
that it now is necessary to maintain a
I force of approximately 750 accountants,
i bookkeepers, assorterH and examiners in
i the office of the auditor of the Post Office
i Department. During the first three
i quarters of the last fiscal year, ended
| June 30, there was an increase of 2.089,
j 000 In the number of money orders issued
I as compared with the corresponding pe
riod in the preceding fiscal year. The
value of the orders issued, however, was
? $28,84*5,000 less than for the corresponding
period of last year.
Average Value of Orders.
The average value of domestic money
orders Issued during the quarter ended
March 31, 1909, was $6.61. and the aver
age value of the international money
orders during the same period was $20.58.
That an immense amount of money is
sent from America to foreign countries
and that the balance is heavily against
this country is indicated by the state
ment of Auditor Chance of the Post Office
Department that the international money
orders issued in the United States, and
payable in foreign countries exceeded
foreign orders paid in this country dur
ing the fiscal year 1908 by approximate
ly $66,000,000.
In round numbers there are 50,000
money order offices In the United States,
from which 850,000 money order accounts
annually are received by Auditor Chance.
They are accompanied by 68.000.000 paid
money orders, aggregating *575,000,000.
Postmasters are required promptly to de
posit surplus money order funds, and
about 2,500.0'certificates of deposit, ag
gregating $5'i0,0i?0,000, also are received
by the auditor for official record and in
spection. The auditing of these vouchers
and statements represents 140,000.000 sep
arate transactions.
Paper Handled Seven Times.
Approximately 250,000 paid money or
ders, weighing 500 pounds, are received
at the auditor's office each day. In the
process of reassembling these vouchors
numerically into states and offices of is
sue each money order is handled seven
times, or the equivalent of 1,750,009 each
day. This work alone requires a force of
16T. expert assorterts. all of whom are
young women. The orders are distributed
among the assorters purely by weight.
As the work necessarily must be kept
current there is no loafing on the job of
an assorter.

SHARON, Pa.. July 10.?Charles Be

twelve years in a filthy room at Wheat
land, where he was found recently by a
constable, is aaid to be one of the heirs
to the millions of Nancy Bebout. who
died a short time ago at St. Louis.
Constable Hallis of South Sharon, who
discovered Bebout's condition, is In re
ceipt of a letter from Attorney Frank
C. Vaughan of St. Louis regarding the
whereabouts of Bebout.
Frank Bebout, who left his home at
Wheatland many years ago. is now con
nected with a St. Louis newspaper.
Vaughan has been engaged by him to
find Nancy Bebout's heirs.
It was while handling "copy" at his
desk that Frank Bebout heard of his
brother's plight at Wheatland. The two
! were ignorant of each other's where
j abouts.
Charles Bebout is a son of Mrs. Ed
Mathews of Wheatland by a former mar
; riage. At a hearing held after the
' finding of Bebout, Mrs. Mathews said
her son was irrational and was kept
j alone in the garret because she had no
time, to take care of him. Bebout Is
now in the county home at Mercer,
where he is rapidly improving.
It is thought he will be taken to St.
Louis later to claim his share of the es
tate of Mrs. Nancy Bebout. an aunt.
