Co Go loam & Co, Auctioneers, 1407 G St. * A two-story dwelling on the farm of A. !,. Ranks, near WilliKton. Md-. ten anted by A. L. Murphy, caught lire from a defective flue and was destroyed. The no insurance. family succeeded in saving most of the furniture. Mr. Ranks purchased the farm only a little over a week ago. There ia This distinguished frock for informal afternoon wear was developed in mole-colored satin with trimmings of velvet in the same shade. The kimono blouse is surplice both front and - back and fastens, together with a crushed girdle of the velvet, beneath an ornament of cord in self-tone, placed at the left of the front. The tunic is draped slightly and slashed from this point to the bottom, then laced together with cord. There is an underskirt, yoke and chemisette of velvet, a. narrow strip of skunk banding neck and sleeves. MANNER OF DRESSING ACCORDING TO WEATHER When Mercury Rises Lightweight Garments Should Be Substituted for Heavy Coats and Furs. An old theory falling into unpopularity is that the weight of clothing worn in winter should not be changed in any way, lest the wenrcr take cold. Newest hy giene has it that garments should be chosen to suit a. shifting thermometer, and that to continue to wear, on a mild day. the same heavy coat which is needed in very cold weather is a mistake. There is no doubt of the excellence of the new theory, if it is only worked with intelligence. For instance if the day is mild and the month is February, it would be absurd to put on a spring suit, how ever sufficient its weight. For the wearer must bear in mind that changcs of tem perature come rapidly throughout the Atlantic states, and that sufficiently warm clothing must be worn always, so if there is a drop of 10 degrees in the mercury the body would not suffer. A medium for a mild day is a heavy cloth coat, ot suit, with a piece of fur around , the neck. With such dressing there is no danger of a severe chill. In extremely cold weather p. fur coat should The Amulet Craze. We have passed the era of supersti tion? so every ? one declares?but it does not seem to diminish the sale of amulets to ward off ills. Some women possess a collection of dif ferrnt forms for different evils, wearing the bunch as pendants from a thin neck chain or on a watch fob. There is a pink coral hand to ward off the evil eye; the amethyst, which brings immunity from worries and trials; the ruby, which protects its wearer from the impertinence of evil rspirits and gives im mnuity from plagues and poison; the crysolite. as a cure for insomnia; the em erald. which is supposed to cure blind ness and ward off its approach, and the diamond, which is a preventive of insan ity. Among the cheaper amulets are the garnet, which keeps one well and like wise represses tendency to luxury; the topaz, which acts as a tonic on the sys tem and makes the wearer optimistic; the agate, which is credited with all sorts of curative properties; Ihe sardonyx, whose mission is to insure a happy mar ried life. Any one with a fear of being poisoned can choose as the stone for his amulet a diamond, sapphire, ruby or garnet. The sapphire will also prevent fever and maka the wearer pious and wise. The luckiest amulet of all is .set with' the turquoise. According to the old be lief. he who owns a turquois will never want a friend. It is not enough jusf to possess one of these stones in any sort of setting; the amulet wearer has all sorts of antique forms and quaint designs in which her lucky stone can be had. The more unique the form the more desirable It is. Paper Wedding. For the first anniversary of a marriage fun can be made by having, as is proper for that year, everything In paper, even the costumes of the guests. Every man could have vest and coat and sleeves of the title of some news paper tthe same paper, of course, for the same costume>. By choosing papers pub lished in dlstanct cities and of varied type and color great variety can be se cured. Then the men should act the pol icy of the paper represented. The women may take magazines for their impersona tions. having the poster.covers for aprons and the general color of the publications the tint of their dresses, which should be made of tissue paper. Recitations, orations and readings could be made from each periodical or paper, selecting ones also from which songs or Instrumental music could be rendered. Of course the refreshments should be served on paper dishes, the decorations should be of paper and the food, as far as possible, be those things that art widely advertised. be worn, for nothing woven is so warm as a garment made from skins. To prevent taking cold in Jthe throat or cliest -when wearing a dress with a thin guimpe, rub the flesh exposed with grain alcohol. To apply put a few drops into the palm, of one hand, and friction the flesh briskly and thoroughly. The com bination of rubbing. with the spirits, closes the pores and stimulates circula tion. Another preventive is to rinse the throat with cold water every morning. Many times cold Is caught by discard ing fur from the throat when In the habit of wearing furs. For such an extreme change th? throat cannbt endure, and when a boa is given up for a time, a scarf or other extia covering, less warm, must be put on. A woman who is in the habit of taking her tub in the morning: instead of at night will find an alcohol rub afterward may-prevent ?*old. These-spirits should be put on quickly, to ? close?the pores, which have been opened by warmth of the tub. She who is unaccustomed 'to wearing a low neck dress, and has occa sion to put on one. should always rub throat, chest and shoulders with alcohol to avoid cold MARGARET MIXTER. Cleaning Feathery. You can clean with gasoline or with a p?ste. If .the feather is soiled a washing in soap and water may be the u?st plan. To clean with gasoline you fill a wlde mouthed glass jar* with gasoline, adding a little good white soap jelly. The feather Is laid in such a bath and allowed to remain there over night close ly covered.. Next morning the contents of the jar are poured Into a clean vessel anJ the | feather is drawn through th> fingers until the soil is removed. The feather is then rinsed in clean gasoline and hung to dry. . To clean with a paste, .mix . to a thick cream raw starch and alcohol, t'over the featlior thickly with this and allow It to become dry. Then brush away the starch. To wash with water, make a suds with lukewarm water and soap jelly, the lat ter made from good white soap. I Thoroughly clean by dipping up and down in the suds and drawing tnrough the fingers. When clean, rinse in warm clear water.. In the case of the water being bard use borax as a softener, but not ammonia. Do not expect the feath-r'to look white while wet. This tone comes only whon it Is dry. Care of Eyes. The rtme-honored saying that we seldom hold our possessions at their full value until we are in danger of losing them is never more true than when we refer to the blessing of good eyesight. It Is through the avenue of sight that most Impressions reach our brain, and when we lose It we are "shut In the dark," cut off from our fellows by a deprivation of which only the totally blind can under stand the magnitude. Our eyes are all Important to us, and should be guarded more carefully than the most precious jewels that ever came Into mortal pos session. * Yet how often we see girls doing their best to ruin their eyes! They have often lu*ard that reading in trains and omnl buses Is one of the worst tjiings that th?> can do, but one cannot take the shortest journey wUhout noticing that about four women out of every teh are trying their eyes bv poring over some paper or nov elette. which is Jerked aside every other moment by the Jar or vibration of the car Apart from the constant movement and consequent change of focus forsthe eyes, the light is often very bad, and .the head aches of which so many girls complain are frequently due to- eye strain from this cause, and to nothlng else. It is not while they are still In the twenties that they are most likely to suffer for their Ind ^retion. but wait awhile and nature wHl 1* re\enged. Kor every hour they have misused their eve* those faithful savants of theirs that did their bidding for years *o uncom plainingly. they * and the "failing sight that ta ?? <>??> the trouble of middle life will hamper ' their usefulness and spoil their pleasure. 420-426 7?ST. 417-425 8?

W jrtli Tomorrow and $7.66 f A l Keeping Cut Lemons. Lemon and water taken early each morning has brnmiP a common drink among: women who value their complex Ions. Nothing: keeps the digestion in bet ter condition. Since sugar Is not used, there Is no danger of acid even for gouty and rheumatic subjects. Do not use too much lemon. The juice of a third or half the fruit is enough. To keep the cut lemon fresh for several days is something of a problem. Cut- off only the section to be used and squeeze the juice from the cut portion. The rest van be turned, cut side down, in a cup or it can be put in the same po sition on waxed paper. This should be big enough to fold over the lemon and keep out the air. Treated in either of these ways, a lemon will keep several days even in hot weather. Do not stand in a warm closet nor where the fruit will freeze. The Wheel Motif. Huge filigree fcnd jeweled wheel motifs now ornament gowns. They are made of old gold fillgreelike fretwork incrusted with giant sapphires and Imitation stones and linked together with heavy of j bcads and gold filigree balls. CLEANING FINE RAIMENT.
