"It id moat difficult to economize, and the most difficult part of it is to kno\ in what direction to practice economy, said the wise womao. "Often those who do it will curry their economy to oo great an extreme. The right way to do it is to get along without extras, and use just what is necessary for every-day comfort. It does not meat that there should not be enough, not any deprivation of necessary comfortc 'There are women who, wheu they economize,?will do so at the wrong end She comes to the conclusion that whec evei she does not buy anythiog or cuts of! an item of expense she is economiz ing. She will attend to the grocer': biils. That is well, but sometimes she will expend 25 cents' worth of time to save 5 cents. Then the same womat may economize on her luncheon. Sin ?rill convince herself that eating midday is a mere habit and will dis oense with it. Sbu Sods it all the easier o do because her husband is not homi -it that rn'-al, and, of course, sbe does not want him to go without enough to -?at. 8he thinks mat he needs mort food tha i she dots. "The woman who praotices this sort ?f economy will find that the depriva? tion impoverishes herselfand her child? ren mentally and physically. Often in the loDg run it is more expensive in actual cash, for the doctor has to be called in. "The right way to econoru'ze is extravagances, not in necessities." Mr Hobart's $1,000 Inkstand.

We never did; but we have seen the clothing at this time of the year so covered with dandruff that it looked as if it had been out In a regular snow? storm. No need of this snowstorm. As the summer sun would melt the falling snow so will melt these flakes of dandruff in the scalp. It goes further than this: itpreventstheir formation. It has still other properties: it will restore color to gray hair in just ten times out of every ten cases. And it does even more: it feeds and nourishes the roots of the hair. Thin hair becomes thick hair; and short hair be? comes long hair. We have a book on the Hair and Scalp. It is yours, for the asking.
