Nothing strikes more terror to n young mother's soul than an appear? ance of rash on her baby. Unless the eruption Is prickly heat, which even the most Inexperlenced^ajorson is like? ly to know. It indicates lllm-ss, and a physician should be called. Rut while waiting for him her mind muy lie much relieved hy knowing something of the different forms rush takes and precisely what they mean. For Instance, scarlet fever, that loost dreaded of all Illnesses, Is not to bO mistaken for measles by a person versed io tho Indications of both. In scarlet fever the eruption Is bright col? ored atul the spots arc so close togeth? er that they seem to run In one mass, though each little speck Is really clear? ly defined. It begins on tho chest or about the neck and spreads quickly. Measles show first, to the Inexpe? rienced, on the face, but a physician will usually see small spots In the mouth before they appear elsewhere. This particular eruption that develops rapidly from the face to the body Is accompanied by swelling aud Is blotchy. Rash that Is part of chicken pox ap? pears, too, on the face llrst, an a rule, but its formation Is quite different from that seen tit measles. In the former It la in little lumps that quickly develop Into bllstorllke looking things. It does not break out all at once, but appears In rotation In different parts of the body, ho that at first, one por? tion may be quite clear of any erup? tion while another Is covered. It dis? appears by drying Into crusts that drop off after a time. German measles, less serious than tho other form and frequently llrst mistaken fur It, may show by n rash tiofon) there are any fever symptoms, Tho eruption l-i usually much paler than In real measles and may be ei? ther tiny or fairly largo. It sometimes runa in together, but an a rule re? mains clearly separate and dcdnetl. It lants a shorter time than lu measles and may fade after two days. LAVENDER DUMBBELLS. They Mako Charming Triflos For Bazaar Stalls. Take nbout n dozen stalks of laven? der ami tie them together nt the base of the flowers With one end of 11 yard of mauve baby ribbon, shape the dow? ers Into a ball, using extra pieces of flowers to till up where necessary, and .Wind cotton round to keep all necuro. TUB DUUPUIU,!, Win::,' BTAItTEP. Then bend each stalk down over the ball aud thread the rlbUm In atul out of-tho tttulka until the flowers are com? pletely covered. Now take a dozen more stalks of lavender ami muhe an? other ball In the same way. When tho two ball? are finished Intermingle their stalks nnd bind (irmly with the two ends of ribbon which should havo been left loose and fasten off by tying lu a smart bow. These lavender dumbbells will bo found to sell splendidly nt ba> eaurs and look pretty made In various colors. Tho Perfumos of Araby. Sometime:) a combination of two or more odors gives a much more delight? ful perfume than either used singly. For example, combine an ounce nnd n half of BOme really good violet extract with half an ounce each of rose, tulie roso and cassia extract, and the result Is n decidedly novel yet delicate nnd lasting perfume. If to this uru added half an ounce of the tincture of orris root, five drops of oil of bitter almond ami two nnd a quarter drama of triplo rosewntor, tho odor is Intensified, yet not too strongly. If two and one-half ounces each of extract of rose nud tuberose, with a gill of extract of cassia and two and oue-half ounces of tincture of orris root, with a single grain of bitter alm? ond oil, are well blended, n most ex? cellent Imitation of a fragrant violet perfumo results. These delicate extracts, It must bo re? membered, call for care and exactness in blending and most exquisite clean? liness In uteusllo and bottles, as tbo oils nre so absorbent that tbey lieeomo spoiled, and one's time, money nnd work nre all for naught. Green Her "Hoodoo" Hue. There are charms In great vurlery that superstitious women carry with them In tho firm belief they nre Indispensa? ble to their success at cards or In oth? er ventures. Now n fashionable inodlsto In town soys mnuy of her customers aro equally superstitious about colors. Htie made a green dress for a woman who liked It greatly. But within a fortnight she wan back to tho shop with a tale of woo. She said that whenever she had worn it 111 luck hod come to her or to n friend. Tito "hoo? doo" was no pronounced, Indeed, that sho gnve the gown away. She told the dressmaker never to mnke her another frock of that odor. The unimaginative dressmaker couldn't see how tho color mnde nny difference; but, as sho wont? ed to keep tho customer, sho was wise enough to nod In sympathy.
