HOW OLD CARPETS ARE PREPARED FOR WEAVING Rags Are Sewed Together and Wound Into Balls for the Weaver, to Be Made Into Rugs. _______ While ft is genet-ally known that old carpets can be rewoven Into handsome, serviceable rugs, there are a few house keepers to whom this information mayj be of benefit. Even those wlio are aware that the I transformation is possible often lack knowledge of detail, such as the kind of rag* available for the purpose, the quan tities required for making the various sizes, the manner of sending and the 1 correct preparation. To begin with, any kind of carpet can be utilized. Those that ean be rewoven into reversible rugs that can be used on both sides are Brussels and ingrain? Carpets that make?up on one- side only are velvets, moquettes, Axminsters and Wiltons. Smyrna rugs, when not too much worn, can be used by combining with carpet and adding chenille. This process, I am told, is done entirely by hand, so an extra charge of 25 cents per square yard is made, but the result is usually a beauti ful rug. Brussels and ingrain cannot'be united in the same rug. They must be woven separately. i To calculate how many square yards of rug can be produced Trom an old carpet one must figure as follows: Six running yards or eight pounds of Brussels carpet will make one square yard of rug. Allowances must be made for worn-out and threadbare parts. When such exist one to three yards more must be added to the amount as stated abov? in order to get a rug of the desired size. Pieces as small as one inch wide and twelve inches long can be used. Should j the length of the old carpet fall short of the amount necessary for reweaving into a rug of desired size, then the quantity can be made up by the weaver, who charges 5 cents a pound for carpet cut tings. which are usually in stock. ? This is a convenience. Another good idea is to send pieces of j any kind of carpet with the large quan- ' tity of the sort desired, because often it may be woven or possibly exchanged for I a. weave that would combine to ad-1 vantage. Carpets may be shipped just as they ! come from the floor, without beating or other cleaning, as this is done as soon as it comes into the factory. Handsome rag rugs can be woven from A Few Suggestions. While the Dutch neck remains in fash ion women cannot be too careful about j the manner In which they wear them, ! for it is exceedingly bad form to expose the tfyroat and chest when walking on city streets, and this style should be con fined to use in the country and for in door wear. It is not proper to tuck one's hand kerchief -inside the open neck of one's gown. making use of this opening as a place of safety for tiie niouchoir, and no person who desires to be thought well bred will do it. T?> pull out even a hand kerchief from inside one's waist is unre fined. The handkerchief should l>e kept up the sleeve, which fashion still counte nances. or in a fancy bag to match the gown, which is one of the fads of the summer. Either through thoughtlessness or ig- ' norance, some women have a trick of continually fussing at the neck of a Dutch cut waist. They give it little pulls, as l,f it did not fit comfortably, or hitch It with their shoulders as if they felt out of p'.ace In it. Such a movement is I most unpleasant, for it not only makes' the person who does it conspicuous, but It calls attention to probable defects which were better concealed. More reprehensible still is the habit of thrusting one's hand inside the Dutch neck to arrange an undergarment, the shoulders of which have slipped or are pulling. These arc matters to be at tertknl to in the privacy of one's room and it is most indelicate to do anything of this sort In public places or in tjie presence of others. One of the laws of gcod breeding te to keep one's self as Inconspicuous as pos sible. and women should bear this in mind just now on the trains, when there is so much traveling back and forth from country to town. They should not talk in ,loud tones which carry conversations over the car to the annoyance or amuse ment. as it may be, of others. Wlien they have been shopping ti'ey rr.ust refrain from unwrapping their pur chases and looking at them, or showing them to some friend with whom.they may be sitting on their way home. Thesi old cotton and woolen rags. To prepar* these for weaving the rags should be cut into strips one inch wide, lapping the ends, one over the other, and sewing down. Next wind into balls. It requires one and one-half pounds to make one square yard. If the rags are of heavy goods, then it is wiser to allow two pounds to one square yard. The price for weaving rag rugs is 35 cents a yard, if one yard wide, but if a wider width is desired, then the cost is 50 cents per square yard. Pew women, perhaps, know that old soiled or faded cheniUe curtains and draperies can be rewoven into handsome reversible rugs, but this can be done at a house where the carpets are undertaken. It requires Ave pounds to rpake one square yard, which, roughly estimated, is usu ally the weight of one curtain. Rugs from old carpets can be woven plain or with borders and with fringed ends, as the customer wishes. Band borders are placed a few inches above the edge on the ends of rugs. End borders are woven on the extreme edge, and then there is a third border effect. This goes around the four sides. There is no extra charge for (he border decorating the ends of the rugs, but if it goes all around them, 25 cents per square yard Is added. When a fancy rug is desired, the same kind of carpet in two different colors must be sent?to make the border or center, as the case may be. One dollar,per square yard is the cost of reweaving when the rug is to measure two square yards. This includes the rugs made with band borders, but if fringe is added fifteen cents extra per running yard will be charged. The fringe Is vegetable dyed, woven into the rug and cannot pull out like the fringe that is sewed on. These vugs may be woven in any size?quite an advantage over ready-made ones, which come In standard sizes only. In shipping, old carpets should be tied securely with strong rope and a tag at tached. hearing the name and address of the sender. A duplicate tag should be placed inside the c?arpet. City orders are called for and delivered free. Out-of-town orders weigh ing less than 100 pounds should be sent by express. Bundles over this weight should be sent by freight, on account of expense. Rxpressage should be prepaid, the manu facturer paying one way only.

A distinct novelty, though one hardly practical as most novelties, is a hat form ed entirely of wings, not a togue nor a hat trimmed with wings only, but literally made of them, the brim formed from them, arranged to overlap with the tips pointing outward and the crown en circled with one of the '?revived" wreaths of tiny splkyg pinions. The edges of the brim, cut so a certain outline Is given; the whole carried out in soft specky brown, reminding one of a thrush, but lined with jay blue. The crown covered with breast feathers in loose, bent style, dyed blue. A beautiful bljr silver gray ninon s^fLrf is fringed deeply with chenlle to match* and embroidered with metallic blue but terflies and others in silver thread. A charming chiffon frock In palest buff is printed with a border of flights of the small water and cinnamon brown ones; and a lovely black tulle hat was held in place by a pair of exquisitely imitated red admirals, enameled hatpins as sole relief, says the Queen. Artificial flowers are worn to some ex tent in the hair. The newest for this pur pose are made of gauze and spangled with silver. Corn and Oreen Peppers En Casserole A? this season' green corn is best for this delicious dish, but canned corn may be substituted, when desired. Too much liquor must not be used with the canned corn, all that is superfluous being drained off. Cut the corn from the ear, mix with half the quantity of minced sweet green peppers, and butter, salt and pepper to taste; place in the heated and buttered casserole and bake In a moderate oven for twenty minutes. Uncover, add a layer of buttered bread crumbs and leave uncov ered in the oven just long enough to brown delicately. ? I illinium Lansburgh & Bro 420 to 426 7th Street. 417 to 425 8th Street.

Justice Gould Wins ''Good Dinner" as Easily as Rolling - Off a Log*. It looks easy to remove tree stumps when one watches the uprooting by force of dynamite, but when manual labor has to be resorted to the task becomes ardu ous. At least this Is the 'experience of United States Attorney Baker, who is having a portion of his farm near Ger mantown. Md.. cleared of stumps. - Mr. Baker was entertaining his friend Justice Ashley M. Gould one day last week, and as they sat on the porch of Mr. Baker's bungalow conversation drift ed to the amount of effort requisite to re move a stump. After watching for some time how easily the remnants of large trees were uprooted by the workmen with the assistance of dynamite. Mr. Baker conceived the notion that he could take a pick, grubbing hoe and shovel and run opposition to the compelling force of the explosive. Turning to Justice Gould he said: "Judge. I believe 1 could remove one of those stumps in three hours." "You couldn't make an impression on it In that time." commented Justice Gould. "Good Dinner" Wagered. "I bet you a good dinner I can," quick ly retorted the district attorney. Justicto Gould unhesitatingly accepted the wager, and early the next morning Mr. Baker put on his working clothes. Including a sweater, and, calling a friend, who was stopping at the house, to hold the watch, he started In to remove the chosen stump. Mr. Baker's previous ef forts "on the stump" had been confined to political .speeches, where he ha-s al ways been successful, so he tackled this particular stump with alacrity. Laboriously he worked with pick and shovel, dirt flew In every direction, and beads of perspiration gathered on the brow of the workman. Every fifteen min utes Justice Gould, coolly attired, ap peared on the porch, and, making a speech on the nobility of labor, urged his host to renewed effort. One hour passed. Mr. Baker still toiled, but his efforts were growing weaker. Fifteen minutes more elapsed, he was still working, but resting between each stroke of the pick. Another fifteen min utes found Justice Gould on the porch with his little speech of encouragement, but Mr. Baker was "all in." "You win," he sheepishly admitted, as he threw down the tools and gave up the task in disgust. The stump, still firmlv rooted, was re moved later by the explmive method, and Mr. Baker says the same means will be employed in removing all the remaining ones on the farm. . Thomas Willoughby. a Canadian farm er, Tuesday afternoon shot his twelve year-old daughter dead. After washing and dressing the body he ended his own life. .Willoughby had been despondent. JUMPS ON "FRATS." Chicago School Trustee Rules Them Oat Entirely. CHICAGO. August 19. ? Classifying members of high school fraternities and sororities in the same category of law breakers as burglars. Prof. Alfred R Urionof the school- board recently an swered a plea for leniency for the high school societies, made by one of the fra ternity presidents, in terras that left no doubt as to the determination of the school board president. What the presi dent of the school board told the young man he repeated a few minutes later. "I told 'him," said Mr. Urion, "that fra ternities and sororities have no place in the public school system, and that we had formed a rule against fhem, and that that rule was a law. "I also told him that even if we had to depopulate the high schools we would crush out the fraternities and sororities. "I told him furthermore that when an organization of fifteen or sixteen year old boys or girls set themselves up as social censors and were permitted to exist, it was the beginning of the sapping of the foundation of our public school system. "I can say that we will expel every one we find belonging to any such organiza tion, and, moreover, we will see that he or she is never taken back into the schools again. The expulsion will be per manent." DR. BERNHARDT BURIED. Washington Professor Laid to Rest in Vermont. Special Dispatch to The Star. BURLINGTON, Vt., August 10.?The remains of Dr. Wilhelm Bernhardt, for, many years at the head of the German department of the Washington high i schools, were buried Monday afternoon In J^ake View cemetery here, without service of any kind. This was to carry out the expressed wishes of the dead pro fessor, who, St appears, held decided opinions In this matter. He left word that in the event of his death in Washington his body should be cremated, but if he should die In Burling ton he should be buried In L>ake View cemetery without ceremony. The arrangements were in charge of W. H. Wahly of Washington, a personal friend, who came from the capitaJ Satur day night. Dr. Bernhardt was instantly killed by a train near the Howard Park crossing last Thursday afternoon while walking on the track. , TAFT'S COUSIN KILLED.

WALKS WITHOUT ASSISTANCE E. H. HARBIMAN WAVES ASIDE ROLLING CHAIB. Sailing of Steamer From Cherbourg1 Delayed Three Hours to Await His Arrival From Paris. CHERBOURG, August 19.?"Now I am better. My cure is finishing and I am very glad I am going to see the soil of America again. My only hope is that the voyage hack will be as good as that coming over." These words were spoken last night by E. H. Harrlman, the American financier, in reply to a question about his health just as he was boarding a tender which had been especially assigned to convey him and his party from Cherbourg to th? anchorajro H the roadstead of the steamer Kaiser Wilhelm II, which will convey him to New York. The steamer started on its journey late lrfst night. Mr. Harriman's special train, which left Paris at 11 o'clock yesterday morning did not arrive until 7 o'clock last even ing. being forced to reduce it* speed 011 account of the slowness of the regular train preceding it, the locomotive of which was out of order. A crowd of curious persons had congre gated at the maritime station when the special arrived. A rolling chair had been provided and was placed beside the car as soon as the train came to a stop. Soon Mr. Harriman appeared on the step. Dr. Lyle, Mr. Harriman's physician, of fered the financier his arm, but although he was pale and appeared feeble, he de clined assistance and slowly descended to the platform of the station. He alsn declined to use the rolling chair and walked without assistance aboard the tender. He was protected from the strong wind by a big overcoat. The late arrival of the trains delayed the-sailing of the Kaiser Wilhelm II three hours. slemdei amd BEAUTIFUL How Stout People Regain a Perfect Shape, When a person In too stoat and contemplates a special treatment in order to retain sletodernesa and Ix'uuty of form, there Is one Tltal recom mendation to be borne in mind; d<> nothing, t*k? nothing that, might possibly bo detrimental tn bea?th and strength.
