The Sisters who had him in charge consulted three dif ferent doctors, and they all pro nounced the case hopeless, saying that the good care he enjoyed was all the help he qould have, and it was useless to submit him to any new treatment. When a Sister received from a friend a present of a bottle of Father John's Medicine she im mediately started to give the medicine to the little boy, with the wonderful result that after one month and a half with this treat ment he was improved so much in strength and size that one- could hardly believe it was the same boy that was seen a short time before in such a bad condition. He is now going to school and partaking in all the paktimes of. his school mates?something that he never before was able tb do. It is therefore with the greatest pleasure and satisfaction the Sis* ters recommend Father John's (Signed) THE SISTERS OF PROVIDENCE, Hospice Audair, Montreal, FNT<? t?\VOME NEW HATS FOR SPRING. WHITE LEG HON X WAS THE PLIABLE MATERIAL FROM WHICH THIS STUNNING MODEL WAS FASHIONED, THE SOLE TRIMMING BEING AN IMMENSE WHITE PLUME ARTISTICALLY DISPOSED. THE BRlM IS CAUGHT UP IN A CHIC MANNER AT THE LEFT SIDE. The hats for the coming season are, by reason of tlieir variety of form, ma terial and decoration, suited to every taste, every fancy and. every face- It will be the fault of the wearer if every girl and every woman, no matter what her years, does not secure a becoming hat for the spring of 1912. For the early days when there yet lingers a touch of winter sharpness in the air. velvet and straw have been com bined most effectively, and taffeta, par ticularly the changeable variety, so much admired in Paris, has been selected for a number of smart models.

THE DAILY CHIT-CHAT. By Bath Cameron. ? 4 < An English judge has made a list of ifteen of the most common mistakes of ?ife, from which list I have occasionally quoted in these letters. Today I want to add one which the judge left out- My sixteenth most common mistake is this? "To think people are barbarians because they do not happen to know the particu lar things which you know." In Jane Austen's "Mansfield Park," when the little country cousin comes to live at the great house her wealthy cou fcins are astonished at her ignorance and constantly run to their mother, saying, "Dear mamma, only think, my cousin cannot put the map of Europe together? or my cousin cannot tell the principal rivers in Russia, or she does not know the difference between .water colors and crayons. How strange! Did you ever hear anything so stupid?" In the end it turns out that Fanny, al though she may be ignorant of the rivers in Russia or the distinction between crayon and water colors, knows a great many things that her cousins do not, and is developed along lines In which they are painfully deficient. Incidentally, as any one who has ever visited Mansfield Park will remember, Fanny eventually "wins out," to use a slangy but ex pressive term. Now, the attitude of Fanny's little cou sins at the great house is the attitude which mdny much older and should-be wiser folks are prone to assume when they find that people are ignorant in any line in which they themselves are proficient. Say that you are well versed in litera ture, and in conversation with a friend chance to quote from Rossetti, and your friend lets out the fact that he never heard of Rossetti. With what holy hor ror you regard him, and how promptly you set him down as an impossible ig noramus. Ah, my friend, suppose he should begin to talk about the interna tional peace situation?surely something as vital and wonderful as even Rossetti's poetry?and should mention great names and events that were all as Greek to you, wouldn't he have as great a right to set you down as impossible and a barbarian? There are so many thousands of branches on the tree of knowledge and so many millions of twigs on each branch that if a man were to live all of Me thuselah's U69 years, and apply himself to learning all the days of his life, there is no doubt that lie would still die igno rant on many subjects. Doubtless some young sprig, who was particqlarly interested in some tiny twig on the tree of knowledge, misht start to talk to tfiis supposititious person on this particular subject, and, finding that he knew nothing about it, set him down as an ignoramus. If you look very long and intently at one object and then shut your eyes you can still see that object everywhere. A great many of us look so long and in tently at the particular objects that in terest us, and close our eyes to other interests so tightly, that we see our own interests everywhere and cannot compre hend those who do not share with us this distortion of vision. "There are not many men in this world, after all," says David Grayson, "that it will not pay us to go to school to, for something or other." If we would only remember this truth, and be willing to go to school to other people occasionally, instead of insisting on always playing teacher ourselves, I think we should make the sixteenth mis take less often. ? ?> I SARTORIAL HINTS. By Elizabeth Lee. <? ? , ; While the plan of making up the more important gowns thus early in the spring is not one to be recommended, it is a very good idea to take some of the re maining weeks of winter for fashioning the simple cotton frocks that will be wanted as S66n as warm weather comes. In the first place, the new goods are all ready, and a much better choice is to be had now than later on. Such fabrics, too, very toon lose their freshness, which, after a.ll, is their chief charm, hence the many ?ood reasons for making an early selection. Of course, when it comes to silks and dainty woolen goods it is better to wait for the new styles, hut most women have their own ideas of how they want wash frocks made, and so are independent of fashion. The Turkish toweling (masquerading under a high-flown French name) Ija-s taken hold upon the public fancy. As it is entirely too warm for a whole gown, it is usually combined with a thinner fabric, and. strangely enough, quite often the chosen material will be as sheer as the toweling is heavy. Finely striped, flat on cloth, will be used for the body of the gowns and the toweling for the lower portion of the skirt, also the trim ming on the waist and sleeves. It would seem ridiculous to combine a material that required starching with the towel goods, but it is certainly done, and the effect Is decidedly good, but I fancy only those persons who can afford to discard clothing as they please will indulge in this whim I can see how fine, thin crepe and the toweling would combine in a most, prac tical way, the preferred trimmings a little heavy embroidery worked with mercerized cotton right on the goods. The whole could then be washed, dried, and when given a shake would be ready for wear again. Another word of caution?plenty of time should be allowed for drying. The material is something like the oatmeal cloth which was worn some time ago. The complaint was then the material spent more time wet than dry. Just as soon as any new thing is launched we are so anxious to try it we only see the best side of it. and before spending money it is the better way to consider the question from both sides. To my thinking one might get a very smart suit by combining line with the toweling. Unen does not require starch, you know. I should 11' e a plain skirt banded about the bottom will th?? con trasting material, while the coat could be of the latter?supposing the wear-to-be l? qaantity of good whiskey. Pure Malt Whiskey Hie idea back of it has Ft bean to make a cay so free from tank arid aai fuel oil?adaltcr antt of aay ?ort?that It ceald be used as a audidae Some people caa't take whiskey moderately?they should never toack it ISHraimm NO DANDRUFF, FALLING " HAIR OR ITCHY SCALP. Your hair appears soft, lustrous, fluffy and abundant after using a little Danderine. What causes Dandruff, itchy scalp and falling hair? Who cares?so long as Danderine overcomes this?and it does, and quickly, too?it does more, it grows hair, and we can prove it. Try as you will, after an application of Danderine. you cannot find a single trace of dandruff or a loose or falling hair, and your scalp will not itch, but what will please you most will be after a few weeks' use, when you will actually see new hair, fine and downy at first?yes ? but really new hair? sprouting all over the scalp. A little Danderine now will immedi ately double the beauty of your hair. No difference how dull, faded, brittle and scraggy, just moisten a cloth with Danderine and carefully draw it through your hair, taking one small strand at a time. The effect is imme diate and amazing?your hair will be light, fluffy and wavy and ? have an appearance of abundance; an incom parable luster, softness and luxuri ance, the beauty and shimmer of true hair health. Get a 25-cent bottle of Knowlton's Danderine from any drug store or toilet counter, and prove to yourself tonight?now?that your hair is as pretty and soft as any?that it has been neglected or injured by careless treatment?that's all?'you surely can have beautiful hair and lots of it if you will just try a little Danderine. were slender?the trimmings to be of the linen. A stout figure should make the body" of the coat of the iinen and trim with the toweling if she would look her beat. Strappings of linen, also embroidery and a plain braid, will be the most ar tistic trimmings for the toweling. By em broidery I mean the kind worked in the cloth, not bought by the yard and added. I suppose before we know it we shall see summer dust coats of the toweling. In that case the bathrobe could do double duty, for both the material and the lines of the two garments are the same. Some way or another we always overdo a fashion, don't we? Linen for Millinery. The new lingerie hats rfe not the fluff predecessors of the breakfast cap. They are practical shapes, as nearly severe looking as dainty white embroidery can become. All the linen is applied very smoothly over blocked shapes. Kyelet embroidery is employed, and roses, a "ruche" of net or a pair of "wings" of heavy guipure may be used as trimming. One linen hat 'that Js out of the ordi nary is not in the sheer embroidered fab ric, but in a heavy, rough-finished coat ing weave in the natural linen shade. This covers a large, broad-brimmed mod el, with a facing of straw. It would make a stunning finish to a tailored costume of linen. Many of the newest side jabots are really not frills at all, but consist of a triangular piece <<f lace, suggestive of revers. Among other successful novelties in this line are those having the large revers 011 one side of a central strip of insertion, while the other edge is finished with a frill of matching lace. ^1 "Yes I take pride in my wife's little dinners. "They are always cooked right and served right. And she makes no fuss about it." Yet often the man who says this or thinks it, has no idea how much Campbell's Soups have helped along the success of these little affairs. One of these wholesome tasty appetizers to start with goes a long way toward making any dinner a success.
