TIE PRINCESS WHO A Story for Girls, by a Once upon a time there was a prin cess that never cried. One day the princess was very pale and felt blue, and her father asked her if anything ; could M (Jone for her, and she answered "Father, I have felt very blue because I wish to marry a man but I'cannot find a man that suits me. If I could but cry. I should feel better." "Just as you Bay my dear daughter," said the king, and he sent a herald about his king dom giving notice that any young man ' that would risk his life to marry the , princess must come there three days and jf he could make her cry three hours each day of the three he could marry her, but if he failed he must have his head cut off. ' The next day a doctor came, but he failed and had his head cut off. Day after day men came but failed and died the game' death. At last a man came and) he had a bottle of toilet water. This toilet water he had made himself &nd had 'put twelve dozen onions in it. The princess loved toilet water, and was very pleased. She washed her face and hands with it. In less than five min, utes she was crying for she couid smell the onions very much. She cried -three hoitis that day. The king was Fruits for Picnics. Anything from a watermelon down to strawberries unhullpd with a little paper or powdered sugar to assist in their services goes well at a picnic. A few lemons should always be carried ja squeeze of lemon juice added to each cup of drinking water, making It not only more refreshing but serving as a germicide in Ase there is anything out of the way with the water supply. In packing bananas, carry separately from the rest of the luncheon, as their heavy oSorpermeates everything laid near them. . TO MAKE. FIll'IT SMUTS. There are two ways of making rasp berry shrub or raspberry vinegar. One is to add vinegar to the berries and let it stand and after the berries have been taken out to add a second lot, then straining these out and adding sugar, cooking awhile, and finally bot tling for winter use. In fevers this will quench thirst. Another way is to let the berries ferment before cooking them.; add no vinegar. While this beverage, made with sugar, is called raspberry vinegar, some persons prefer to call it raspber ry shrub. The syrup left from canned peaches, pears or berries may be strained and mixed with lemon and orange juice, some sugar and water and a little nut meg, and converted Into a water ice. When partly frozen, arid whipped white of eggs and a little port wine, and fin ish freezing. The fruit Juices should ba scalded together with the sugar and water. Fine raisins may bo put tn the syrup and frozen with 'the water ice. I Tin-, home I'orri.AH. It is comfortable. It looks usable. The furniture is arranged to meet one's needs,, not for show. It isn't bought because it is the "thing," or "thoy" ar using it now, or because "it is the fad just at pres ent."

The eternal fitness of thing? is the spirit that guides the housewife when purchasing and good will and comfort the genii that rule in tne house, So it isn't any wonder that frlendn and acquaintances far and near like to cross the threshold. THINGS WORTH KNOWING, Butoningholing the edges of Ham burg embroidery together makes a neater finish than the customary French seam. The best corset covers to wear with office waists are made of embroidery in width to make the entire cover. Such a corset cover will last much longer than the frail ones of lace. A convenience for the woman who travels by sleeper is an apron with three large pockets at the bottom. Into these pockets, which are rubber lined, go the brush, comb, cOap, wash cloth and other toilet necessities for use in tne tiny dressing room of the car. - COULD NOT GRY- Girl Eleven Years Old. very rmich pleased and told him to do something else the next day. So the next day ho came and asked if he might make her cry that night instead of that day. The king consented. So that night when the princess had gone to bed the man took one of the dead men that had failed in making tier cry. He took this man in the princess roam and standing at the foot of the bed he toe, b'an to murder the nvjn saying "Oh, king if you do not let me marry the princess I shall kill you. The princess, thinking it was her father sprang up screaming and crying. -She cried three hours. The queen had a littlo baby born a week before. The princess loved her- little brother so that she was allowed to sleep with him. The next night the man went into the princess' room and taking the baby out of her arms.crawled out the window and down the ladder. The princess sprang from her bed and went down the ladder screaming and crying. She cried thrae hours. This made the king very, happy to find that his daughter could marry the man now for sure. The wedding took place the next day and they lived very happy together. CHARLOTTE DOWNS.

Women who remain at home have bne advantage in that they can often buy pretty things at the summer sales. Furniture sales and linen sates are usual at this season, and already the price of summer fabrics Is coming down, and materials may be bought and laid away until next year with out going out of style. The charnilng . wlokerware which has been brought to sw'h a state of perfection is suitable-for bedroom or den when Its usefulness on the piazza is over. Banked, .with. gay. cretonne cushions and enameled white or stained in dark color, it finishes well, Since it is light in weight; its suitability in a small house or apartment is obvious, as it is easy to move about, and the cozy arm chairs, with book rests and work stands, do well In a den. Bam' boo, is, of course, a little more sum mery in appearance and is really only suitable for the summer cottage or conservatory. . ' If one wishes to inclose the porch or part of it in glass without attempting a regular conservatory with growing plants the enclosure will make an at tractive coffee room or den by using wicker furniture and a counch and hanging tapestries and Turkish or Japanese draperies to keep out inquisi tive eyes. More than one house in the suburbs has a littlo glass- room of this sort, which is used for. after-dinner smoking "by the men or as a sun parlor Iurlng the day. The stem heat may be extended to it in cold, .weather; or, if wide doors open, into one of the rooms in the house proper little extra heat is required if the place is well built. The general effect -is much like the prettily, furnished summer iazza. HELPFUL HINTS. Fasten a stout safety pin into the back of the waist from underneath, then sew to the belt of the skirt a good sized hook. " The skirt is then hooked to the safety pin. ' This is good for wash waists, as the safety pin is easily removed for washing the waist. For the ordinary kitchen apron of gingham yon will be pleased if you use a large coat hook' and eye to fasten the apron in tho back. ' Make the band to fasten around the waist just as you would a skirt band,' finishing the ends with the widest hook and eye. This saves tying the apron or looking in vain for' a pin when one is rushed with work; again, it is more easily removed. CHATTER OF THE TOILET TABLE What to Do When the Hands Are Sore and Sensitive. When the hands are sore and sensi tive and nod a healing lotion use the following: Two ounces of glycerine, two ounces of rosewater, ten drops of carbolic acid. Be sure to 'use only the purest toilet soap and dry the hands thoroughly after bathing then;. A too dry skin, that Is easily rough ened by .exposure to sun or wind, should be carefully fed and treated, or It will become prematurely wrinkled and withered, Every night bathe the face carefully with warm not hot water; partially dry with a clean soft tower, then apply a little good cold cream, rubbing it well into tho skin. Leave the cream on for about live minutes, then carefully remove with a clean,' line rag. lAn old cambric or fine linen handkerchief does excellently, The following ha3 been very success ful in removing stains and" yellow streaks from the neck.

If you are walking along the street and wake up to the fact that you are carrying yourself poorly . take the mental attitude of standing erect, as well as the physical one. Look at the men you meet and imagine that each one of them owes yon a dollar; put even a suggestion of arrogance into yonr position. Hold your head well back; look people squarely in the face. This will not only give the im pression to others that you possess the power you want, but it will actu ally tend to bring that power. Keep the neck against the collar, ' If con stantly persisted it an erect carriage wil soon become very natural and there will be no need of thinking of it. There is no doubt that women run easily into excess. They will either take no exercise and sit huddled over a tire or doubled up in a chair, or they will suddenly walk until they drop, as they expressively phrase it. Each is bad. ' Exerciser, to do good, should be gentle and regular. Never walR when tired. So many women force themselves to walk when per haps they are fagged out by a hard day of domestic work or worry, or maybe from a day's work in an office or shop. They' come into the air deadbeat and literally throw them selves along a road, with every muscle ff "imv and the whole body dragged. Did they take an open car in spring or summer, or sit i ft a park or garden, or even at an open window, till rested, they would do themselves . far more food. , walk should only be taken, for choice, when the body is alert and untired, and the spirits are good, or at least the brain, mind and. u $ fire, not heavy with fatigue.

There Is a fad in France just at present fo,r chiffon' scarfs of bright col ors to wear with lingeries gowns. These scarfs are dreams of loveliness and cost as high as $30, yet are so simple that the handy needlewoman can make one for herself at small cost. Chlffonyof the washable quality is used and that of extra width is preferable.! Tho scarf should be, long. enough, to go about the shoulder and extend down the sides of, the front almost to the hem. of tha gown. A charming effect is to ave them -chirred crosswise on the ma terial from that part which begins on both sides of the front at the shoulders and goes "across the back. This narrows the width .and ;i gives a trifle , of warmth to tho otherwise filmy scarf and also adds grace, to the front folds, which fall full from the shirring. Some of these scarfs are edged with chen ille and others with malteso lace, while" many are seen trimmed with several tiny ruffles of fine valenclennes lace, one put above the other, thereby lending a charming billowy effect, TO RENEW BABY RIBBONS. , The ribbons that are run in lingeries often become soiled, and when they are washed and ironed they become stiff, and are no addition to the gar ment if used afterward. By chance a young woman 'havihg no" heated Iron con-' venltnt for pressing found a way that is better than pressing with an iron. After washing the ribbons in soap nnd water and rinsing them thoroughly, she smoothed them out In her fingers, and then taking pins, she stretched the ribbons on tho bed, fastening the ends tirmly to the counterpane. By doing this the ribbons dry perfectly smooth and lose none of the gloss and soft fin h'h as they do when they are ironed. By cutting off the pin marks at the ends the ribbons will look like new. .. ... . . -, CROQUETTES This delicious breakfast dish is composed of one cupful of cold, boiled hominy, a tablespoonful of melted butter, a saltspoonful of salt And one beat in tcs. stired till smooth Shape into, balls, rcjjU in flour, and set in a cold place overnight.

White gloves may be cleaned in the following way: Lay them on a clean table, and rub Into them a mixture, of finely powdered fuller's earth and alum, in equal quantities. Work this well in. and then brush it off. Afterward sprinkle tho gloves with dry bran and whiting, and finally shake and dust them. , - ;:'..-.: . , Another practical way to clean gloves is with bezine or benzine soap. The combination of these two is death to dirt. A small sum will purchase a wooden band, over which the glove Is slip ped ready for scrubbing. A scouring brush much like a nail brusht In form and slitter as to brtsttles Is dipped into the cleansing mixture and the glove Is thoroughly scrubbed. It is hung to dry and the glove stretchers bring it into shap when the cleaning is done. . . . ' . - . A piece of ammonia Is said to keep gloves in' good condition If placed In the box with them.

From buyers o? oar great houses whi are" in Europe to get next season's ff jorls comes word that there will be a craze for gold and silver ornaments next fall. Hats, gowns, blouses and wraps are to be adorned with gold oj! silver lace, ' braid and tassels. The ;ho!-.e of metal Js determine!' chiefly by the color scheme. Faint light browns and delicate bright greens are the favorite hues. Sometimes the brown !j trimmed with green, in which case gold, is the most harmonious addition. When green is trimmed, with brown, snver is regarded as giving more agreeable effect. This fashion will be extremely, trying to women who have n't the great dressmakers at their com mand, for good effects with- gold and silver trimmings are difficult. The ten- dency seems to be toward garishness. , I Long, tight-fitting and very severe f coats are promised, but as time goes i on these are to give way before the directoire cut-away, which will be -worn j with a handsome waistcoat and plenty of braiding. , In Paris the fashion for pink gown? has bts'en particularly noticeable in. the evening, When a number of plain cling lng satins of this color are worn. They are untrimmed save for a bunct! of exquisite flowers. Braids are indeed increasing tn rath-1 er tnan failing favor, and will play as Important part in autumn trimmings4, serge, made w Uh emt f of 'Bulgarian embroTdT 5 wlthT ery of gold braid. ,, ' th a tr" Wrt or one noticeable -for- hl.X d?3J' Listerd among some of the very styl ish dresses seen this week was a gowns of pale tan voile made with a jumped waist and a skirt banded with three bands of the voile. The openwork upU on the waist was piped with- a! very narrow bias fold of red silk, while the srouioer pieces, the vest and back were laced with red silk buttons. The skirt folds showed a narrowred pip ing, while the' tan helt the same order. The skirt was slightly entrain and looked beautiful in grace ful lines. . . . ! A silk mull of, hay color . Is sultabla for evening wear. , A dress of this ma terial is laid with broad tucks, upon: the skirt, and used in sufficient num bers to reach the knee line. The waist 13 partially decollete, at the throat es pecially,, while the sleeves are short and pointed under the arms, leaving the arms almost uncovered ' to the shoulders. While the skirt is severely plain, the waist Is' finely tucked and finished with beautiful ' ecrue valen cinnes of a very dainty pattern. An other costume made almost identical with the one just mentioned is a white silk mull with blue silk ribbon garni ture and lace ruffles finished at the top with Velvet ribbons. . - The last recruit, where military flowers are concerned, Is the rhodo dendrons. This is the first occasion In the annals of fashion when this par ticular flowering shrub has been era nlovpd for this Durnose. althOUKh It 1, of course, onlv nosslble when used to. trim tne immense ciocne or musuruinu hats.

Another flower which is high in favor just now is the Shirley I poppy, and a very charming effect was E-nlnprl in the case of a Leehorn hat. the brim of which was encircled with masses of pale pink poppies, crushed; so closely together as to give the effect! of a silk ruche, -while a loose cluster of i the same flowers, with sprays of black! velvet hops-, was inserted at one siue. I Contrary to all expectations irt thai early part of the season,, when every-! one was looking' forward to a reign of! filmy muslin and lawn, the tallor-mada has absolutely asserted its sway. Strip-j ed costumes have had a far longer, vogue in Paris than Js usually the case.j and the plainly-made, striped coat,! simply hemmed with braid or taffetas,; and unadorned with any trimmings, whatever, . beyond . strappings of its own material, has been taken up en-: thustastically. For. once the example of our French sisters has proved the salvation of those who were wont to overload , their costumes with cheap trimming;, and not only in the three quarter length coats, but even In the; little short coats and boleros which; are more popular with the majority! of women, a like moderation is shown.! Every woman should have at least a short time in the day in which she rests, and it should be a regular time. She should close her eyes, withdraw her thoughts from everything,, and really rest. Fifteen or twenty min utes "of such absolute rest every day counts for a great deal.
