WOMAN'S WORLD. HOME AND HOME FOLKS AFTER THE SUMMER VACATION. Patient Walters —Mother's Vacation —A Woman's Project—Advice for Hot Weather —Beware of Summer Colds. Notes for Mothers and Housekeepers. Though it is perhaps a little soon to think of returning from one's summer outing when there aro so many who have not yet gone away, and as also tho weather wooes us from rather than to ward the city, yet one cannot control the current of the mind to such a degree that there will not loiter somewhere in the corners the anticipation of what will be done when we once again reach home. Absenco makes the heart grow fonder, especially of the inanimate objects left behind. It is a perfect delight to note the chairs just where they used to stand; the little knickknacks in our own room telling their tale of gifts with pleasant associations, and becoming acquainted all over again with tho workings of the home. In all the days that have gone so swiftly by have we ever met any among the many new acquaintances that could compare with the home folks? W r ere there ever such dear, gracious, lovable people" in the world as father and mother? No girl was so pretty or boy so clever as tho sister and brother who are most hearty in their welcome, their kisses and loving little pats of affection keeping np even when hat and wrap have been laid aside. Even though we may not be physically benefited one iota by our summer out ing, yet to every one a trip of a few days is beneficial in one way, at least>-dt brings out the home folks and home sur roundings in an entirely different light when compared with the glamour and insincerity of the outside world, and un less the mind is shallow and the inclina tions most frivolous, there will be no yearnings for the pomps and vanities, but a thankful heart and rare apprecia tion of tho genuineness of the dear ones who love us for ourselves.—Philadel phia Times. Patient Waiters. The Italian singers, Sofia and Giulia Ravogli, who became quite suddenly the delight of London musical circles, are very modest and patient women. They can bear to defer enjoyment even of the praise which is theirs by right. Mile. Giulia was one day talking with a friend, who happened to make some remark about the enthusiastic no tices the two singers had received from all the London papers. "Yes, every one tell me so," replied she in her pretty, broken English, "and we get such a lot of funny little rolls of de brown paper sent to us many time in de day, and we puts dem all in dis big drawer, to save up when we go home." Here sho pulled out the drawer and displayed a quantity of newspapers, not one of which had been opened. "But don't you look at them?" asked the visitor. "Oh, no, not yet we look; but see herel dis is a book which shall contain dem some day." Thereupon she displayed with great pride a perfectly new and empty scrap book, which she confessed had at tracted her by its red and blue index letters. In that "some day" would see her fame enrolled, but she was content to wait for leisure to accomplish the pleasing task.—Youth's Companion. Mother's Vacation. Have you ever thought, girls, as you enjoy the summer vacation, what a scrimped bit of it, or none at all, falls to mother's share? She loves to see you looking dainty and sweet as all little women should, but the very wash dresses that give the desired effect mean to her an added burden of housekeeping cares that she does not have in winter. Such dresses must be properly laundered, if not by her own hands, at least under her per sonal direction. Then there is "the table." Of course there ought to be fruits and vegetables in abundance, rather than a heavy meat diet. It takes a large slice of mother's time each day to see that these are properly prepared, not to speak of the canning and preserving that summer imposes on prudent housewives. Even if you all "go away," mother is not quite care free. Father drops his business, and you young folks set your hearts on nothing save a good time. But the "wash list" is still on mother's mind; the "mending" must be done, though it is vacation! —M. D. Sterling in Good Housekeeping. A Woman's Project. The idea of tho "New England kitch en" in Boston originated with Mrs. El len H. Richards, a graduate of Vassar college, aud the only woman instructor in the great Institute of Technology, and she was ably assisted in organizing the work by Mrs. Mary Hinman Abel, whose essay on sanitary and economic cooking won the prize offered by tho American Public Health association. Financial support was given by Mrs. Quincy A. Shaw, who thus added one more to her many practical philanthropic works. On Jan. 24, 1890, the kitchen was opened for tho sale of food, a sufficient time having been previously spent in collecting facts and making scientific experiments, to make the public test of them desirable. The kitchen is now es tablished on a business basis, and in its regular work is self sustaining. The aim to prove a sort of object lesson in cleanliness has been successful, but has cost more effort and money than were estimated at the outset. One of the chief difficulties has been in securing trained helpers or even those willing to learn.—Gertrude Talbot in Onward and Upward. A Prima Donna's Advice for Hot Weather Lily Post, the prima donna, is a woman of taste and of a practical habit of thought. She is credited with this advice to the summer woman: "I don't quite like to pose as a doctor, nor to offer advice unsought, but perhaps a few •words may not come amiss. Of course I presume you are a woman—no man would take the pains to read what a woman has to say upon these momen tous subjects—so I will say the first of all things you must do, if you wish to ( keep cool, is to disregard bangs. Yes; bangs are heating, inasmuch as they are a source of constant anxiety when LOS ANGELES HERALD; SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 4, 1892. nature haa not made them of a curly in clination, and the worry caused by the thought that they are as straight as broomsticks is enough to make some women get into a perfect fever. "Let the thought of bangs be brushed from your mind, forget that new fash ions exist and wear the coolest clothes you have, whether they are out of date or not. Be lazy, and in no special hurry to accomplish anything. Forget that time does not wait for you, and do noth ing except what is necessary. Eat spar lngly and sleep all you can if you would know the meaning of rest." Beware of Summer Golds. "Beware of summer colds." warns a physician; "city peoplo aro likely to be careless how their feet are shod for country walking, the damp earth ono finds in village walks necessitates for tho feet more protection than do stone pave ments, and thin shoes and slippers are not suitable footgear. A summer cold is pe culiarly obstinate because of the oppor tunities for rapid changes of tempera ture. Mornings and evenings cool, with hot days, need attention to clothing. I think nothing so safe as fine wool un derwear all the year around, and I make all my patients wear it who will. Cot ton is too good a conductor of heat. The moment the surrounding air be comes cooler than the skin, as it often will when the dew falls or after a sud den rainstorm, it steals heat. from the body which is needed. A fresh supply must be had, and this taxation of the system in a delicate person, or even iv a strong one, sometimes brings about a local congestion or 'cold,' all of which might have been prevented with woolen underclothing, however light and fine." — New York Times. Seed Decorations. The use of seeds for purposes of sim ple ornamentation is'very old, and has of late been revived with good effect for embroidering fancy articles. The best seeds are those of the melon, vegetable marrow and cucumber, assorted accord ing to size, shape and color. After the design ha 3 been traced on the material, which may be velvet, plush, cloth or silk, the stalks are pub in with gold or maize colored silk in stem, chain or her ringbone stitch, and the leaves outlined in a similar manner. Then the seeds are placed in position and fixed by a stitch at either end, care being taken to make them lie flat. Among tho flowers which can be imi tated in seed work are marguerites, asters, starwort, jasmine, etc. Ears of corn or barley are very effective, though more difficult to work, owing to the seeds having to be packed close to gether. On a foundation of maroon velvet or crimson cloth the seeds stand out like ivory in bold relief. The calyx of the buds is done in crewel work or silk. This work can be adapted to fancy articles of various kinds, such as table borders and centers, banner screens, tea cozies, etc. —Decorator and Furnisher. Mrs. Stanley's Tribute to Her Husband. Mrs. Stanley may certainly be regard ed as the champion admirer of a hus band. When she spoke at the explorer's electioneering meeting at Doulton she said: I voted for Henry Stanley two years ago in Westminster abbey, and I call on you to vote for him, not for himself, but yourselves and in your interests, because he is a great and a good man, and when you and I have passed away and aro forgotten he will be remem bered as having been a great man who had served his country well and done noble things for it. You can't make him a greater man than he is by putting M. P. after his name. There are no bodies who want to be somebodies, and in order to get this title they will prom ise to do everything, but Stanley is a man of Ids word, and when ho says ho will do anything lie will do it. Stanley wants to extend your trade and to do all he can to develop commerce. Here is Stanley, and if you turn your back on him I say it will be a disgrace to Lam beth, for I think —and I do not say it because I am Mrs. Stanley—that he is the greatest man in England at this mo ment. Avoiding tho Taste of Codllver Oil. A fascinating belle on the heights is said to have found a new use for cod liver oil. This young woman is charm ing, but ehe is too thin to risk another season of evening gowns until she has reformed. Her physician imperatively ordered codliver oil. Now the young woman hates cod liver oil with a fervent hatred, and after she had taken half a bottle, in a freak of anger she began to apply the rest externally. Strange to relate, her skin grew smoother and fairer. She kept on, and the desired plumpness began to appear on her shoulders. The young woman is, on the Massa chusetts coast, ostensibly for the sea bathing, but her druggist has sent her a case of codliver oil in a plain package by express, and if she comes home with a complexion of roses and cream he will not -believe it was wholly the effect of sea bathing.—Brooklyn Eagle. Hints for Hot Months. Special care of the sewage must be taken during warm weather, and some disinfectant should be poured down the cesspools and sinks as often as once a week. For outdoor drains nothing is better than copperas. Five cents' worth dissolved in boiling water is a powerful purifier and deodorizer. Potash or common washing soda dissolved in boiling water is one of the best articles to use in the kitchen sink. It is wise also to keep a little chlorido of lime standing about in places of doubtful atmospheric purity, but it should be kept, in some high place out of the reach of children. Meat that h&8 become slightly tainted may be restored by cutting away the dark parts and washing the surf ape with a teaspoonful cf borax dissolved in half a cup of water. A large piece of charcoal laid in the refrigerator will help to keep the atmos phere sweet. It needs to be renewed once a week. When poultry and meat ;.re brought into the house and are not to be eaten the same day, put a large piece of char coal inside tho poultry, removing it when the poultry is cooked, and rub vinegar over the meat, washing it off when ready to be cooked. —New York Tribune. An Aid in Canning Tim*. The skin of the tomato is very tough and disagreeable, and its presence in a tomato salad is a decided drawback to that dainty dish. Tho ordinary process of peeling is, however, accompanied with much difficulty, so that it may be of much interest to our readers to know a better method. It is this: Drop the tomatoes into boiling water, remove after a few seconds' immersion and tho skin will come off without any trouble whatever. The reason of this of course is that the heat of tho water acts on the skin and causes it to expand before it has time to affect tho fruit itself; hence the skin becomes detached and can bo peeled off without great difficulty.— London Practical Housekeeper. "Co-eds" Favor Reform Dresses. The closing sensation of the univer sity year was sprung when it was an nounced that the "Co-eds" had almost unanimously agreed to adopt for next year's wear the "rainy day dress," which Mrs. Jenness Miller advocated during her recent visit here. A docu ment has been circulated among the fe male students for the past week, and has already secured sufficient signatures to assure the success of the scheme. The dress which Mrs. Miller advocated reaches only to the knees, and is a mar vel of sweet simplicity, comfort and common sense. The first rainy day next year will bo a great day in Ann Arbor if the "Co-eds" stick to their pledges.— Ann Arbor Cor. Chicago Inter Ocean. A Medical Lady on a Tricycle. In Birmingham a lady doctor of celeb rity is in the habit of going on her round of visits on a tricycle. Her dress is peculiarly neat and pleasing—a dark, striped costume of woolen stuff; a small dark hat and fur boa; equally suitable for a sickroom or the saddle. She skims along through the crowded streets and the dense traffic, the courage, quickness and lightness of touch, so useful to a doctor, showing to great advantage, and having daily practice on her steel steed, as well as at her patients' bedsides. Such a practice must give the relief and exercise necessary to a brain overstrained with work.—London Woman's Herald. Woman in Politics. Unquestionably woman is in politics, and in it to stay. That her influence will be wholesome is indisputable. Woman is instinctively honest. If not so well versed as man in the details of practical politics, she has the gift of grasping intuitively the real merits of a question, and coupled therewith a qual ity of enthusiasm which goes far to make up for her lack of the ballot. The women of tins country have already given one signal illustration of their prowess. They will be apt to give a still more impressive lesson in November next. —Philadelphia Record. What the Suffragist Desires. Let no man or womau be mistaken as to what this movement for woman's suf frage really means. We none of us want to turn the world upside down or to con vert women into men. We want women, on the contrary, above all things, to con tinue womanly—womanly in the highest and best sense—and to bring their true woman's influence, on behalf of whatso ever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report, to bear upon the conduct of public affairs.—Mrs. Mil licent Garrett Fawcett. Finely powdered Peruvian bark is recommended to keep bangs in curl in moist weather. It is applied with a powder puff. Unfortunately this sug gestion is valuable only to persons with blond or light brown hair. On black hair the powder shows a fine dust and cannot be used. Don't give up your steamer chair when your European trip is over. It still has possibilities. Let it go along with the luggage to the country board ing place or summer hotel. There, stretched out with a shawl and cush ions, it will be found a most comfort able lounging place. Mme. Meissonier has offered to the French government the whole of the pictures by her late husband which she possesses, together with the entire con tents of the celebrated painter's studio, so that a Meissonier museum may be formed.
