Kor I here Is the hoive to be fur nished, the trouxsean to be provided, the other ne-rKsary arrangements to he made for the nuptial day. When Jean finds out that bis intended's hair has a com mercial valne he loses bis sentimentality and proceeds to push ns bard a bargain as he possibly can. If Eleanora's hair Is worth $50 to the shearer It bas do com mercial mine to him. And. like a cun ning soul, as he considers himself, be bargains with the clipper until finally lier hair Is In the tatter's sack and 150 las been added to the marrinpe portion. ud It Is from such people as these that vour graud madam and her no less grand laughter, with their thin hair, obtain tbe almost Impossible balr coronets that they wear on every occasion. The Hair Harvest. It might surprise yon to know that tbe r..!lr nit from rosy-checked peasant girls In Europe, from the bare-footed women of the Indies, from the swarthy-cheeked daughter of tbe Orient, Is annually im ported to this country at an expense of more than 5.000,000. Bnt the balr deal er in Europe makes very satisfactory profit before ba starts product to this country, and the Importers here are by no means eligible for tV. almshouse or the bread row. They all, make some thing out of It wither as shearers or local dealers, tber is a profit for every body and the only victims are the wom en who allow themselves to lose :beir chief adornment for a small price and the American men who are compelled to foot tbe bills. "There are few women nowadays who do not wear artificial hair of some sort." said a dealer In hair recently. "They pay from 80 cents a pound upward for it. 1 have sold switches for jl.'-tX). In our business, wblcb bas Increased 300 per cent, during tbe last year, tbe great est care and tbe best taste most always be exercised. Tbe balrs of a switch must, yon can readily understand, be of uniform lengtb and tbe balr that makes It up may come from as many as one hundred beads. "There lire hundreds of balr agents scouring every country In Europe for yoiing women who can he inveigled Into sclliug their tresses for a merely nom inal sum. In Itpiy they secure coarse black balr mostly. This brings the poor est price in the market, but even that is nothing to sneeze at. In Sweden the most costly and beatitlfnl balr is ol tained. It Is , a rarely fine texture nnd is very lunch In demand among the so ciety queeus to whom pri-e is the least consideration as long as they can obtuin the thing they want. Something; About Prices. "The European peasant girl who. with the consent and the approbation of her fiance sells ber charming tresses may re ceive anywhere from one dollar to ten dollars to compensate ber for ber loss. Tbe latter figure Is tbe highest paid by these professional shearers, who resort to all kinds of devices to attain tbelr end. nnd yet I have known of a case when one batch of balr bought from a Bretvu peasant girl for this sum was sold in America to a leader of fashion for $1,500. If tbe dealer who controlled the sale of this particular head of hair bad only Ifbistcd on It. 1 believe he could have otU'il.ifi as n:n.h as $!;,( owing to Its excen'!o:ial q-.sallty scj quantity." Pure white huir that will reach M inciiet in length Is considered Use ino-it valuable, and Is very bard to oo!niu. A Urge dealer In this country wiil willingly prty as much as $in,00o for a case of 0t. pounds of this hair. Of course. If lucre is the slightest gray or yellow tlr.ge in it It depreciates in value. The business of securing pure white hnlr Is a difficult one In ever- country. Most of It couies from Northern Knrope. and a single switch of the fluent quality represents the care ful pickings frum many, ronny heads. 1 So. when the lady of fashion proceeds to dress her hair there Is a certain ro mantic lutcrest she can take In her bor rowed make np. For instance, she may have a switch containing one-half a pound of hair. Some of It comes from tbe love-lorn French peasant girl, some may come from the girl who shepherds her father's flocks In the mountaius of Swit zerland, some may come from tbe thrifty and hard-working daughters of the North land. But from wherever It comes, it answers a purpose it fills a luxurious want of the woman of fashion, and so it is useful, not only to mndum, who follows the dictates of the fickle dame, but to the European peasant girl, who often wins a home and a husband from tbe meager sum paid her for the loss of womau's chief adornment. mm w .i ft 2 -. ir"v- rAi:-s.- J . It. Jl'STWED'S promise, hastily given as be rushed off late for tbe office in the mornlrg. gave no evidence of developiug Into the dire calamity It did. Little did Mr. Justwed reckon the awful rouse quences to his peace of mind. lie prom ised in haste nnd repented at leisure, and It all hnpei!ed thusly: Mrs. Justwed. with that laudable pride that every newly wed womau feels In trotting out her husband and putting him through UU paces for tbe admiration of her friends, bad begun, with the grape fruit at breakfast, glowing accounts of the "at home" she Intended troing to that afternoon, and finished wlin a promise from her better-half that he wonld com. home early and enter the crush with her. "Now remember. Homer, dear." she snld, for tbe hundredth time at least, as she bade him "good-bye" at the front door, "remember, we must be there at C:3") this evening. Do come home early enough to get dressed In time!" And Mr. Justwed promised. Of course. It wasn't, his fault! How could be tell that the president of the hank would come In at 3 o'clock that afternoon with a special batch of ac- LliEi On Miladfs Desk. Of all parts of the house that should be as attractive and as dainty as possible, milady's desk Is the one. There is nothing thnt serves so to make a desk attractive as uoveltics In desk books. Every housekeeper has use for an en gagement book. They can be purchased bound In embossed silk. In satin and In grain leather. Shades of Indian red with a dark tone of graining or In green and tan or oiled brown are made In tbe pelts. Calling books bound In similar colors, with the dates of the year and the month In order Inscribed on tbelr covers, are a neeeflslty. i Though the keeping of a diary Is an old-fashioned idea, there are many women who still do so. These can be purchased In tashlonaltie lightweight leathers, lu taupe-colored chamois and In corded silks, fitted with miniature padlocks, the key to which can be kept in tbe desk drawer. There seemi to be a croze nowadays for the keeping uf a diary of all tbe cnte things a baby says and does. Such a diary should be bound In fine white linen or silk, embroidered with forget-me-nots and stamped with the baby's name. Each page bears the date of the day, month and the year, and affords space for the inserting of small photographs taken at various stages of tbe baby's life. Birthday and autograph books bound In fine, soft leathers, elaborately em bossed In point of lettering, are useful. Tbe covers are usually tied together with satin ribbon strings. Needlework books holding patterns and directions for crocheting and knitting and embroidery, are bound in tan-colored beavy linen. Frequently these covers are decorated with band-painted floral de signs and tbe edges of tbe covers fas tened with ribbon strings. Covers for magazines can be purchased of flexible leather with strap bandies that fold about tbe volume much as do those on a handbag. Kacb month tbe current issue of tbe favorite magazine is inserted, and removed when tbe one for tbe next month appears. CARINO FOR HOUSE FERXS. eVERT housekeeper knows that It is difficult to keep ferns as she wonld wish to. Table ferns should always be kept well watered, and the best way to do this Is to place them In tbe bathtub and turn a spray on them. Make sure that the water is cold, as warm water, or even lukewarm water. Is Injurious. Place tbe plants In a window where they will receive light and the sun's rays for a part of each day. 'With proper care table ferns should last two months. Boston and otber house ferns last about six months, but they must be watered every dy and every other day shonld be placed In a vessel that will contain water rising an inch above tbe top of the pots. They should be allowed to remain In thil water for a couple of hours. Should small white Insects make their appearance on the leaves the plants must be placed near or In the smoking-room. If the man of tbe bouse does not smoke, the alternative is to spray tbe leaves with a solution of tobacco and water. DU.fTT BEDROOM CVRTAISS. BEDROOM curtains of heavy white uet. with a border of a cretonne de sign are the very latest for a bed room. A border w!tn a blue ribbon an Inch or so wide, caught here and there with a single pink rose Is attractive. Sucb a border can be cut from cretonne and fastened to the net of tbe curtain, with a chain stitch. Tbe edges may be finished with a narrow pale blue galloon. Another curtain much in use Is the mad ras one. It is of an ecru tint, with fig ures of flowers In artistic colors scattered here and there. Tbe beavy border Is used as a frieze Instead of being placed m at tbe bottom of the curtain. Madras curtains In harmony with tbe furniture of libraries and dens are desirable. For a room furnished In mission style a cross bar silk with woven figures In soft col ors Is a correct drapery. MAKING CLOTHES FIRE-PROOF1. fy HILDREN'S clothing, lace curtains, 1 portieres, rugs and otber articles J In the house may be made per fectly fire-proof at very little expense and with practically no trouble. Dissolve half a pound of tnngstate of soda, which can be bought at any drag store. In half a gallon of water. Put' this Into bottles and seal tightly. When the clothing Is ready to hang on the line abont a tea cup of the solution should be added to tbe rinsing water. In the case of rugs and similar articles the work should be done by sponging them over with tbe solution, added to four times tbe amount of water. If tbe articles are to be starched the solution should be added to tbe starch instead of to the rinsing water. oigekeeyeg FRAMING PICTURES. TT Is not every picture that a boose keeper considers worth tbe expense of taking to an art dealer to bave framed. In all department stores Inexpensive frames can be purchased for an art bead that one fancies in any of tbe Issues of the various monthly magazines. If these are framed with some regard for wbat Is appropriate and wbat la not, they are an addition to the home. A frame should never be more prominent than the pic ture. In framing a picture tbe idea la to accentuate the high tones and bring ont the meaning with the lights. Never nse a wide frame with a narrow mat, nor a narrow frame with a wide mat. A frame that will take life or light from a pic ture Is a mistake. A square frame on an oval picture la an eyesore. A flat frame ran never give a picture perspective. A fine bead always loses half lu beauty when surrounded by a beavy, dark frame. Place a very narrow frame of wood. In harmony with the tints of the picture, around It, and the difference in the two framings la remlrkable. The placing of pictures on the wall la a subject which must be left entirely with the Individ ual's good taste. A definite color scheme should be followed oat, and the picture should be In harmony with the color of tbe wall paper. Always place the largest and heaviest pictures high op on the wall. A LAUNDRY BAG. TJ LAUNDRY bag that will be found fr4 of more than ordinary convenience lb made of two large bordered towels, with three sides sewed and a drawing string run through at the top. For holding large pieces of laundry, sack as table linen and bed linen, a circular laundry bag is more serviceable. If 3 WWtBSi counts that be wanted straightened ont before 6 o'clock? And that Mr. Justwed didn't get home until 5:50 wasn't his fault, either! Mrs. Justwed was trembling on the brink of tears nnd wrath devastating when he finally opened tbe door and rushed Into tbe apartment. "Oh, Homer," she exclaimed, 'what In the world bave you been doing! And yon promised me that " And Mr. Justwed explained fully, em phatically, verbosely the meanwhile rushing madly around the room collecting the things to be put on and discarding the things to be put off: Mrs. J. sat in the living-room waiting patiently waiting, ber fall regalia accent uating that feeling of being all ready for an undertaking and being held back by an Inexcusable Incident. Bang! The crash In tbe next room made Mrs. J. fairly Jump out of ber seat. . "Homer." sbe cried, "what la " "My safety razor?" came a pitiably angry voice through tbe closed door, "where la tbe blamed thing T" "Oh!" gasped Mrs. Justwed. relieved. And then, sweetly: "It's In the top, left hand bo res a drawer, where yon left It this morning. ' If you'd only look for "No. It Isn't!" the irascible Mr. 3. hurled back. "Nothing of tbe sort! I Just polled the drawer out and upset tbe whole business on the floor. I tell yon I can't find Oh, here It Is, wrapped op In my handkerchiefs. Never mind!" "I knew it," aald Mrs. J., taking ad vantage of tbe constitutional right of last word" Irretrievably granted her sex. "If you'd only look for things. If It bad been a snake it'd bave bitten yool Horry, now!" For a time there was silence, broken occasionally by the movements of Mr. Justwed lathering and scraping bis face. "Homer," called Mrs. Justwed, "how near dressed are you? it's a perfect eta ; and a shame to keep me waiting tike - this!" .: "Waiting!" echoed Mr. J. "Waiting -. I'd like to know bow many times you've ; kept me waiting!" - "That's neither here nor there. Homer. , besides being a very rode speech.

"Ton don't mean to tell ma yon have actually lost It!" "My other shirt stndr walled Mr. J. "Have yon seen It?" "No, I hare not." Mrs. Justwed replied, qolte loftily. "When I placed your things ont for you this afternoon I could And but one. I supposed yon knew what bad become of tbe other." ... For five minutes nerve-wracking sounds of tbhigs being tumbled and twisted and . turned upside down came from tbe next -'-room. Mrs. J's orderly soul fairly writhed la , agony. "Ah!" snooted Mr. Jostwed. suddenly and triumphantly, "I've got It!" It was exactly 6:30 when Mr. J. emerged, struggling Into his overcoat, with his hair and bis tie very much awry. "Thank goodness," breathed Mrs. Jost wed, fervently, "you're ready at lastl Horry, now. It's a 20-mInut. ride bator. we get there. Just a minute, now. I most get tbe cards to tbe tea.

WATERING PALMS. yTlATERING a palm la an art that If I bat few women understand, and W for tbla reason so many women complain that they never have luck with plants. In the summertime tbere is not much necessity for special care of potted flowers, for they may b. set not a In tbe yard or on the veranda. Bnt la the season of the year when a palm -most be kept Indoors great car. shonld " be exercised In watering It properly. At least once every week sponge the leaves with lokewarm water, to which ; a little milk has been added. Afterwards -place tbe plant for several boors In lake-" warm water deep enongh to cover the ', pot completely. . If this treatment la : given every week, especially In the fall of tbe year. Just after tbe plant has been brought Indoors, a vigorous, healthy palm will adorn your borne all winter.
