The reparation is perfectly harmless. iNnthtnc . but continuous care will eep the hands wh'fte, though for spe ta! occasions one 1 can bleach them rith buttermilk or peroxide of hydro en. Apply a little lanolin after using !io latter. There are various lotions r the hands, but they must be used ith care, and never if one has any iu.ts or abrasions, as most of them or. tain arsenic. To reduce flesh eat as little meat as ossible and no potatoes. Eat as much :s you- like of fresh vegetables that Prow above ground. Give up all tarchy foods, eating only albuminous i.es. Never drink anything with your ileal. .Don't starve, but acquire the abit of eating lightly In the middle f the day. Just a green salad Is the est lunch possihle, both for the fig re's sake and the complexion. When the eyebrows are too broad and :cllned to be bushy they should be iValned by brushing. If the line is not ood have some of the hairs removed 1th the electrio needle. When the eye rows fall out use the following oint 'ients, which never fails to arrest the lsease and which will Invariably pro mote a new growth: Three ounces of ed' vaseline, one ounce of tincture of antharides, one ounce of Jamaica rum fnd five drops of oil of rosemary. Mix U thoroughly and apply twice daily '1th the eyebrow brush. Tiny white spots, which sometimes eface the fingernails, are caused by a toppage of the nutriment juices. It is Irrrost impossible to remove them. Wholesome food, fresh air, bathing, rcper olothing, plenty of sleep , and ihe absolute avoidance of tight lacing nj among the requisites for promoting ealth and perfecting beauty. ;'Here is a home-made toilet powder 'hich is very nice, Indeed: Half a ound of starch, one ounce of orris sot, one-quarter dram of oil and ger-. mium.'

A., and a Young btory writer Shopping Never run into debt to buy anything, no matter how advantageous the pportunity may seem to be. Familiarize yourself with prices, so that you know about what an article lould cost. Buy only at reliable shops. If .the article is not good of its kind it is not a irgain at any price. Be chary of buying trifles that are merely passing fashions. If such lings are reduced it generally means that their day is over, i Don't "buy anything unless you know what you 'are going tq do with it. In certain things there is practically no change in fashion. Materials for underclothes, trimmings for the same, materials for chil dren's frocks and household linens can luc away unui neeaea. Changeable taffetas are often used with good results in the rubebr coats, and certain plaid and checked silks make up attractively. A changeable blue and green taffeta with plain green leather collar and cuffs and me tal rimmed buttons Was one or tne modish imported models shown in a shop noted for motor garments. Dark circles and that baggy look be neath the eyes are apt to be due to a nervous or overtired physical condition or to a serious Internal trouble, so be fore fussing over trying to do away with it by local applications it is well to find out the deeper cause and be doctored for that. The pompadour style is generally the most becoming to a round face, as It suggests length. The hair should be raised as high as Is consistent with good taste directly above the forehead and slightly puffed on, the sides. Ar range the figure eight at the. back of the head or coll, as preferred, and fairly low. White hair can be thoroughly clean ed and made light and fluffy by rubr blng through it a handful of magnesia. Magnesia will not stick to the scalp as most powders do, and It is splendid for removing dust, grease or molfjture from excessive perspiration. It can be brush el from the hair and leaves the hair as clean as when thoroughly washed. Scrape the magnesia from the block with a knife, but do not have it to fir.ely powdered. C NEW AUTO COATS. ' Pongee of all kinds, particularly the shantung and' tussor qualities, is pop ular with the makers of motor coats and has much to recommend In that it Is cool and dust-resfstlng, and will, if carefully handled, stand tubbing as well as cleaning. For both the sum mer traveling coat and the summer motor coat this material has a decided vogue, but there is a great difference in the pongees and the making, and with so many cheap, commonplace dust coats of pongee in the market a pongee model must have considerable individuality to lend it distinction. ' The taffeta dust coat is not so well considered as it was several seasons ago and the chief use of taffeta in connection with motor apparel is as a surface material for the silk coats backed with rubber. Exceedingly good effects are shown In these coats and the manufacturers have bent every effort toward doing away with the dis agreeable smell which has been the chief defect in rubber-backed coats. They have not altogether succeeded, but the rubber smell has been dimin ished considerably and every woman who motors much will ( have one of these silk rubber coats, which are worn as often for protection from dust as for raincoats. Some ot them made up in rubber-backed crepe de chine or chiffon taffeta, are surpris ingly thin, supple and light of weight, though the rubber lining always rend ers them hotter than other coats of similar weight.

When a stain proves unusually obstinate and absolutely refuses to come out by ordinary methods, wet the spot thoroughly and then cover with dry chloride of lime. Let it remain a few moments, rubbing well'with the finger meanwhile, and then rinse until the lime is out. It will generally be found that the stain is gone, also. If not apply again. A second application will re move anything that Is removable. , Owing to the nature of the remedy, however, it is far better to make a second application than to leave the first one on until the stain is all gone. The chemical action action of the lime removes a portion of the internal fibre o fthe material and thus eats tip the stained part. The proportion of fibre thus removed is so small as to do lime will insinuate itself, taking a strong hold, and finally bite through the fabric, or weaken It so it will soon wear of javelle water, which is so often recommended for the removal of stains, but using the powder itself is more satisfactory In many ways, and, as it can bo bought in small cans with a sprinkling top it Is quite as convenient as when In solution. ' HELPFUL HINTS TO HOUSEKEEPERS Some Suggestions That Will Find Favor With Everyone. If new tinware is rubbed over with fresh lard and thoroughly heated in the oven before using it will never rust af terward no matter how much it is put in water. For stained tinware borax produces the best result. If a teapot or coffee pot is discolored on the Inside' put in a strong solution of borax for a short time, and all its brightness will return. Keep a bottle of peroxide of hydro gen and ammonia in the kitchen dur ing the summer months. This will clean the hands and nails from un sightly fruit stains, especially berry stains. X.lnens sholud be given an airing ev ery now and then, most thoroughly of all of course just after they have come from the launderers. Plenty of light and air, as well as soap and water, are necessary to keep them in spotless con dition, for what occult reason only some one wise in the law of physics can tell. But the results will be their own proof-airings prevent "freckles" and mildew. Doilies for flower pots are made of Things J Mornrttnmt, of 20 Pnrk Street, Thin,,... ,,,., th.m. These senar.

Chamois leather Jackets are among the novelties offered by the leading and exclusive couturieres, who are ever on the lookout for "something new wherewith to adorn the persons of their fair clients. The skin chos en Is as fine and as thin as can be, and is not, in consequence, as warm as leather usually is. The chamois skin coats are loose lit tle affairs, smartly shaped to the fig ure at the back, the fronts opening to reveal as "perfect dream of a blouse" a frothy mass or lace, nne lawn or moussellne de sole. Some of these coats have the sleeves slashed up the inner seam to reveal the dainty, frilly blouse sleeve be neath. Others, again are sleeveless. This soft pliable skin takes dye beautifully and it is toned to match exactly with the graceful, flowing skirt of moussellne or crepe de chine with which it is worn. The leading colors of the moment for its expression are heraldic green, buff, soft gray, vellum and sea holly blue. Travelers will find a small package of borax useful on their Journeys. On trains, as often in hotels, the water supplied for washing is hard and dry- Inge to the skin and a teaspoonful of bcrax added to a basinful of water of will make a wonderful difference. FASHION'S DICTATES FOR FALL WRAPS I Handsome Ones For Even ing Wear, Tailor Made and Auto Coats. ' The wise woman does not wait for cool weather to assert itslef and then rush around and buy the first coat or wrap her eyes fall upon and take any thing that will fit her. She takes time by the forelock, thinks out What she will need, looks o,ver her wardrobe sees what can 6e fixed over and de cides upon what sho wants new. The middle of August is none too "early to do this. ' It is the best time of the year to pick up goods for making your jackets and wraps and never were the counters so flooded with silk remnants that are adapted to linings of these garments. Despite the influx of new models the Eton Jacket has held its own in popular taste and for some figures it is by far the most becoming model that could possibly be worn. Despite the fact that predictions announce that long sleeves are , to corhe, they have not really yet been seen. An eton Jacket is always in demand. It is both serviceable and smart and it means a bit more protection than the more fanciful models. It 4s adapted tol all seasons and materials and for the girl whose figure' is well rounded and long waisted it is always recom mended. It shows the figure to best advantage.' Of course, the mandarin, kimono or Tokyo sleeve is very up-to-date, and the eton with those sleeves as in cut one is bound to show this season's mark upon it. It does not give . the warmth that the tight sleeve does, but it has many practices; advantages, in asmuch as It can readily be slipped on iin.roH rtrpssps with fiuffv sleeves ate Etons are best evolved from plain materials, but they can be trimmed quite elaborately and lined' with bright ! silks or figured foulards. In fact, you 'can chance the whole effect of jmodel by the way you trim it, ana each person should spend time enough to- find out just which way it is most .becoming to her features and figure, An extra overgarment In the shape of a smart-looking tailor coat is al wavs wanted in the wardrobe of the well-dressed w6man. The Chesterfield coat, which, by the way, can be made in hivi or threerouarter length, iS a . de, ag awtf., cut three. The 'l . tv,i. mat it ahp is M sewer can.do thif ?0!l" fj8 .ing, but lr sne is a novivo, do big things, then it is xesi m the hands of the professional. Several years ago these coats were almost al r , . ,.tVl t-t tVin wa'a mada of cvert clom' " AT' seems to have been superseaea oy (much smarter-looking materials for Inntence, cheviots In broken plaids or noveltv cloaklnga. These coats are 'a,iitni,lfl for tYavellne ot tot storm w I mats. Thev are seldom lined, al .though It can bo done if preierrea. The popular model is the three-quar ter length with the seams bound, but if vou prefer it lined, then matcn tne 'goods in a heavy twilled silk or soft satin, under no circumstances gei h figured lining for this style of coat, nor should it be of contrasting color, A tailor-made garment should never oocum tnihe dressv in any sense of the word. The plainer it Is thel smart er. This coat should always have a full-length sleeve, for you wear i it only on undress occasions, For the woman who goes out much in the evening, or for the young miss iiist. enterinfr sooiety, nothing is more in demand than the mandarin coat for these occasions. It is so practical and so extremely pretty, as may be seen by a glance at cut two, that I am sure it r,a rnniR to stav. The model is also adaptable for afternoons, driv ing, motoring, etc. Enough really could not be said in its "favor, as it is extremely comfortable, protective and attractive. For the girl of small purse who wants a handsome evening wrap this can TJe made in casnmere wnicn is coming back Into favor, and lined ! with a dainty foulard. . The . fronts could be trimmed with batiste ganoons and you would nna yourseu possusseu p reniiv heautlful wrap. For the elderly woman who wants a large, loose wrap to wear driving or even- Ines. it should be made up in a ngnt- weight broadcloth or heavy quality of ' silk, lined with a lignt-weignt sun, and trimmed with, passementerie or Persian trimming In dull, soft colors, Here is also an opportunity for the woman of nimble fingers to braid the atrins for trimming. A white coat with strips braided in tiny gold sou tache braid, lined with yellow, is stunnlna: a copper brown cloth, braid ed in soft shades of brown, is very at tractive, and should be lined with silk of tan shades. Another extremely ! new and charming combination is a Dale crav coat, braided in silver, lln ed with eray and white doted foulard This particular model has very wide possibiltles as it can be maae ot ai mcxt nnv material. It, of course .largely depends upon to what use you expect to put the coat. For rougher wear it could be made in light-weight panama cloth; it will always look well in broadcloth, and it could be made .beautifully of brocade if you care to ! invest that amount of money in i,n for evening wear. However, there is a decided return of the soft clinging materials that are very in expensive. Cashmere and henrietta cloth come in beautiful soft solors and within the price of every one. Let me givo you a parting word as to colors, Bright shades are a thing of the long ago. New colors all are soft and dull, indeed so much so that they have almost a faded appearance Se lect some color that Is Tecoiing and serviceable that you can weaf with all the dresses you have, a4 get that color in pale, dull shades. Queries and Answers. Can you tell me of some wav in which black garments and black goods can be made to look presentable, which are not worn, but look shabby? tsiacK gooas or garments may be made to look fresh and much improv ed in the matter of color by sponging with alcohol and water, one part alco hol to three parts water. Sponge gar ment and press, first on the right and then on the wrong side. Is there anything that will remove freckles for good? My arms freckle dreadfully, and I would do almost any roublesome thing to get rid of them. xne rouowing is the prescription of famous skin specialist for removing freckles: Elder-flower ointment,, 1 ounce; jsulphate of zinc, 20 grains. Mix well and rub into the freckles at night; in the morning, wash this off with plenty of milk soap and warm water. When all grease is completely removed, apply the following lotion: Infusion of rose petals, 1-2 pint; citric acid, 30 grains. If any irritation of the skin should follow this application apply cold cream. What will remove moles besides the aid of a specialist which I cannot af ford? Ive been told to do several things. Do not attempt any remedy for re moving moles that is not recommend ed by a skin specialist, for you can better endure the mole which Js doubt less not unsightly, than to make a scar which would be absolutely disfiguring. TALE OF A MERMAID. A Story For the Little Boya ', and Girls. ,-: A mermaid was swimming along. when she heard a soft voice say, Whore do you go?" She looked about but could 6t,2 no one; she was asked again. She answered, "to finish the Sea-Fairy." "And do you not see heri?" Again she looked, around- and up on a rock sat the beautiful Sea- Fairy. : ' - : ; :- ','What is your work?", asked the fairy. , A "To go out of the sea and look at the beautiful world," was the mer maid's reply. "And so your wish shall be," the fairy said. The mermaid knew no more for she fell to sleep near the rock. When she awoke she knew not where, she was, her eyes were dim, she could only tell she was on something soft. She could tell nothing that had happened umu sne looitea . oerore ner ana saw a' fairy, and then her thoughts fcame back. This fairy was not the one she met on the sea, she was the fairy of the air. "Where am I?" asked the mermaid. "You are tip in the clouds, look down and see the beautiful world." She looked ' down, and as she did so her eyes grew suddenly bright and she' could see far off, and she saw people walking about, and she asked what they were. "They are almost like me," she said. "They are Just like you except their clothing," said the fairy. The mermaid looked at her tall and to her great surprise she had legs and feet, her beautiful tail was gone. As to her clothing she had a wonderful robe made of the clouds. It was beautifully spangled with stars, and she wore a crown the shape of a quar ter moon. She was now a fairy. . She lived there one long year looking down upon the beautiful world, until at last she looked upon the sea, and saw a mermaid. She thought of her sister and mother and wished to go back and see them once rrjore, al though she did not like to leave the clouds and fairies. The fairy of the air gave her back her tail and she' went to live in the sea again, but after many years she went up in the clouds again and visited the fairies there. CHARLOTTE DOWNS. Keep Your Empty Spools. Never throw away empty cotton spools; they have a hundred uses. In most kitchens there is a row of nails on which aprons and dishcloths are hung, with the result that they are frequently torn and rust-marked. This will be prevented if you force on each nail one of your empty spools; nothing could make a more useful peg. " A spool will make an excellent stop to prevent the door from opening too far and banking the furniture. Cover the spool with thick cloth, to prevent Its injuring the varnish of the door, and screw it firmly to the flooring in the position required. Often enough one finds the door of a cupboard provided with no better means of opening than a keyhole. You can make an effective knob by screwing on another of those ever-use ful spools. For Your Health's Sake. Plenty of fresh air is necessary if you are to fortify your body against the disease germs which are always attacking you. And that is not all, You can't give the machinery of your body too much fresh air at any time night or day. The "great white plague" continues to mow down hundreds of thousands of people in this country every year, and the greatest ally of not only consumption, but half the other diseases on the hospital calendar, is bad air. It ought to be one of the most encouraging thoughts of the feeble and ailing that the best medioine In the world is also the cheapest Fresh air is free to all. If you oannot go out to it, open the window and it will oome In. Try it and not in homeopathic doses, e .. SLEEP. Sleep has a most Important bearing upon the beauty of the skin and also upon the figure. Properly indulged in, sleep may be said to be nature's beautifler, and the woman who takes care that she rests each night under the best conditions possible will have very little use for cosmetics, hair dyes, or cold creams. Sleep is undoubtfedly the best nerve, skin and eye tonic, and without it beauty can scarcely exist. Keep to systematic hours as much as possible, and do not snatch a nap ftj the afternoon, or have an extra hour, in bed in the morning, in order to make up for lost hours over night Too little sleep does not sufficiently repair the strain of the waking hours, while, on the other hand, too much sleep is also bad, as it depresses the vitality, and makes one feel heavy and dull. T6 obtain good beauty-sleep, all over-inaul-geace must be avoided, whether in exercise, in work, or in amusement RECIPES THAT ARE SEASONABLE Tomato Jelly, Iced Tea With . Blackberry Juice and Banana Pie. Bring the contents of a large can of tomatoes to the boil and strain oft all thp lulce. Return to the fire with a half-teuspnonful of onion Juico, a, ta blespoonful of sugar and salt and pep per to taste. Stir into the Juice a half-box of gelatine, which has soaked for an hour in a gull of cold water, stir until dissolved, pour through a Jelly bag into a mold, wet with cold water and set to form as soon as cold in the .fee : chest Serve with lettuce and mayonnaise dressing. ; Iced Tea with Blackberry Juice. Immediately after breakfast make tea with cold water, in proportion one heaping teaspoonf ul of tea to each glass of cold water. At luncheon time, stir and pour off from the leaves into tumblers. - Add to each tumbler one tablespoonful each of lembn juice and the juice from stewed blackber ries and two lumps of sugar. Fill glasses up with a generoue quantity of cracked Ice. Banana Pie. Make and bake a rich pie crust when cold fill with five bananas cut in rounds. Sprinkle with a table spoonful of granulated sugar, and cover with a layer (one pint) of va nilla ice cream, and if convenient dec orate with a few fresh raspberries and slices of bananas; or in the winter pre served fruit may be used. ' , Preserved Green Ginger. Clean and wash some fine green gin ger roots, let .them lie several hours . in cold" water, drain and place the roots in a kettle of boiling water, cook twenty minutes; drain and rinse off with cold water; return the ginger to the kettle, cover with fresh boiling water and cook until, the ginger is soft;" drain and put, in cold water. Next day drain the roots in a sieve and weigh them; allow for each pound one pound of sugar and one-half pint of water; boil sugar and water five min utes, add the ginger, boil a few min utes, remove and pour the ginger in a bowl. Twelve hqurs later drain oft the sirup, toil it three minutes and pour 'it over, the ginger; repeat this twice' more.'- Then drain1 off all the slriipi, place over the fire, boil to a soft ball, add the ginger, cook two , minutes and fill into Jars. Raspberry Jelly. . Who ever thought of making rasp berry fritters? Skewer them on little skewers three at a time and dip in frying batter and then cook in hot oil. Draw out the skewer before serving. Do not take over-ripe berries. Black raspberries may be done in the same way. Country Salad Dressing. Up in the hospitable farmhouse among the hills where sour! cream 'is abundant a delicious salad dressing seldom seen in the city is familiar. Rub the yolks of four or five' hard boiled eggs to a paste with ai many tablespoonfuls of thick sour cream and acidify with tarragon vinegar or lemon Juice. Canned Tomatoes. , " When canning tomatoes, put a few Jars of cauces and Boups by the simpler process of preserving them with the peeling on. This saves much time and strength, and as the toma toes are strained for soups and sauces the skins will remain behind with the seeds. Baked Peaches. Peaches may be baked like apples with excellent results. Peel the froif, put into a baking dish with sugar, bits of butter and a cupful of water. Bake until the peaches are tender. A few Schopped nuts sprinkled over the top of the fruit is an improvement. , Tney should be served cold. Useful Summer Pillows. The husks of green corn dried and sill make excellent stuffing for Wo or three extra piloVwa for summer nee. A few rose geranium leaves, or lemon Verbena put into the oaw with the husks give a pleasant fragrance, and the pillow will be crisp and springy. The virtue of hop pillow as a reme dy for nervousness, headache or Insom nia makes it a good idea to h&ve at least one for every eouchful, and then too they are a change from the pine or balsam needle which are often hard- to obtain. 1
