liTorite Paatlnrr of Mluiiarl
Arkanui Farmers That Haa
lleea Done Amy With.
The continued advance in the
| rice of live stock, especially beef
tattle, during the last Six or seven
years has almost, if not entirely,
iliminated the old-fashioned "shoot
ing match," which was for many
years prior to the beginning of that
eponh a favorite pastime for the
farmers of southeastern Missouri
and northeastern Arkansas.
Less than ten years ago every
neighborhood in the Ozark moun
tains had its regular Saturday after
noon "shooting mutch," and nothing
short of an extraordinarily inclem
ent condition of the weather could
keep the farmers, eager for a trial
at marksmanship, indoors. The prize
contested for was generally a fat
steer fresh from the range of the
White river hills. The guns used
were in every instance ordinary
squirrel rifles, and these old farm
ers, who could remember when the
populated country abounded in
herds of wild deer and flocks of wild
turkey, were muc. more accurate in
their aim than art <any of the mod
ern target sporti m with their
mpdern firearms.
1 The "match' \erally began
about two o'clock the afternoon,
the owner of the steer being on
hand with the animal, so that they
migh't be assured that the prize
would be ready for the winner. The
first step taken was to buy a "num
ber," or, in other words, the right to
contest for a prize.
If there were a large number of
marksmen on hand, as was nearly al
ways the case, the numbers were
sold at a very low figure? as low as
was considered just to the man who
furnished the beef. The distance was
next agreed upon, aff was the num
ber of shots that each contestant
should be allowed, and then the fun
But each man used his own pe
culiar target, which consisted of
some design cut from white paper
and nailed to a board. However,
each marksman had his own opinion
as to the best design for target prac
tice, some using the form of a star,
some a diamond, and others using
only a square piece of paper. Beneath
the design each man would draw on
the board tw6 small lines crossing
each other at right angles. The
point where these lines intersected
was known as a "center," and it was
he who shot nearest the center that
won the first prize.
In the meantime, says the Kansas
City Journal, the beef would be
butchered and made ready for the
winners while the shooting was go
ing on. The animal was divided into
quarters and the man who it was
adjudged had come nearest his "cen
ter" had the first choice, which al
ways meant the one he considered
the best of the hind quarters. The
second marksman got the other cor
responding quarter and the third
and fourth men were awarded the
two front quarters by the same rule:
The hide and tallow were .given to
the man who was considered fifth
in the game, and then there was the
lead, for eaclr man placed his tar
get in front of a tree, so that the
bullets might lodge. Consequently
he who fell to the sixth place re
ceived the lead, which after chop
ping it from the tree he could take
home and melt and mold into enough
bullets to last him a year.
Must Serve Three-Year Apprentice*
(ihlp Under Bond to Insure
Steady Workers.
Diamond cutting is an occupation .
for which women are well fitted on I
account of their natural deftness and
love of the artistic. The reasons there
are not more employed at it in this
city are twofold ? it requires a three
years' apprenticeship to learn the
trade, and it is not every firm that will
take on girl learners, reports the >Tew
York Times.
There is no attraction in diamond
cutting for the girl who goes to work
as a maWeshift- from the time she
leaves school until she gets married,
for the wages paid while learning are
less than those that obtain in many
places requiring only nominal skill.
But for the girl looking for a lifework
in a trade that is not overcrowded
the cutting and polishing of precious
stones offers many attractions.
The firms that receive girl appren
tices have had to adopt rules and reg
ulations to protect themselves from
triflers. The usual method is for the
parents to sign a three years' agree
ment and furnish a $200 bond as a
"guarantee of the performance of this
agreement. For the first six months
no wages are paid. After that the
girls are paid two dollars a week for
one year, which sum is doubled for
the succeeding year. During the con
cluding six months of the apprentice
ship term six dollars a week is paid.
A bonus of $50 is also paid to com
pensate the girls for the time they
worked and received no wages. The
bonus as well as the $200 bond are for
feited in ease the girl leaves before
the full three-years' term has ex

#??v to Make the Moxt of It When It
Ha* Grown Thin and
There is nothing* that adds more to
he beauty of one's appearance (han
i pretty head of hair, ihe present
tyles of hair dressing are so cliurm
ng and \aried that they can be
1(1 tpted to suit almost every form of
face and featuie. Nevertheless, a
treat many girls do not know how
to make the most of their hair. They
, "light took twice as charming as they
do did they but understand the sub
ject, says American Queen.
Ihe woman with t canty locks seek?
to remedy her deficiencies by drag
ging her hair over all sort* and Voo
litions of pads, which she rarely /tuc
?eeds in entirely hiding, or "else she
supplements her hick of hair with
swjtches and curls. Others whose
locks are not of the most abundant,
wash them f ; i juent Iv, using strong
soda, and then curl and twist the un
fortunate hair to make it frizzy.
True, they gain indeed, for the ;ime
being, an appearance of thickgesjs,
but sooner or later the texture of the
hair is entirely ruined.
Ihe first step to make the hair
grow thick is to use hygienic meas
ures, and 10 learn, meanwhile, how
to dress it to give an appearance of
quantity without in any way injuring
the texture of the hair itself.
Hair should be washed at h'ast
every three weeks, and kepi scrupu
lously clean between times by being
brushed and combed daily with ab
solutely clean implements. Do not
forget that if the shampooing is done
at home, you must use plenty of soft
water, and keep on lathering the head
and changing the water until the
hair is beautifuly soft. Stickiness
does not mean that only soap i.s left
in, but that dirt is there as well. If
the hair is clean, it is possible not to
wash all the soap out, and yet to
have one's hair soft and fluffy.
Remember in drying the hair
never to use heat, but rub the scalp
thoroughly with dry towels, and then
separate the long hairs into strp.nds
and then fan them vigorously,
A good hair tonic is an excellent
thing for thin hair, but it is useless
to get one bottle and expect it to do
any good. Buy the best always and
rub it into the roots of the hair three
times a week for several months. Pay
special attention to the temples,
where the hair is apt to be thinnest;
then take a perfectly clean brush, not
too hard, and plunge into the hair,
giving quick, scrubbing, circular
movements, until the scalp glows.
This, as well as streng hening the
roots of the hair, has a tendency to
make it fluffy.
It is undoubtedly very much b tter
for the health of the hair not to at
tempt anything in the way of artifi
cial waving or curling; nevertheless,
waves and curls do add very much to
the attractiveness of the appearance,
and ^ny one who has even the slight
est tendency to dirtiness can, in time,
get quite beaut iful-l< oking waves by
natural means.
It takes time to accomplish this;
do not try twice and then give it up.
Such a proceeding is worse than use
less. Begin by combing all the hair
you wish to wave over th? face;
moisten this slightly with bay rum,
or eau de, cologne and water; take
back the front piece, twist it around
the fingers, and pin It onto the head
in place with a small comb. Take
another piece. and repeat the process.
Leave it for about half an hour, and
comb it but lightly with a coarse
tooth comb. Then turn the hair down,
over the face o mce more, and fluff im
on tlie wrong side, fliis, if done ju
diciously, keeps .the front hair, when
dresserl, a very pretty shape and
obviates the use of rats, which are
most undesirable.
At night brush and comb the hair
before retiring; then braid it loosely

ing shapes made entirely nfr folds of
delicate pink maline. with the crown
and part of the brim covered with
pink rosebuds and green leaves. It
is in hats of this sort that the rib
bon loops and knots are introduced
a*t the back, depending f -oni the
brim and falling over the nair, says
Woman's Home Companion.
One of the daintiest under-brim
effects consists of white or delicate

plaits, with each plait separated
from the other by a narrow band
of black velvet ribbon. Apple blos
soms, crush rose!#1 or maidenhair
fern make a pretty trimming .for
this style of hal. with loops and ends
of black velvet ribbon drooping over
the brim at the back.
Perhaps the most noticeable new
feature in the spring and summer

rials used in fashioning one hat. It
is not so much in the novelty of
shape as in the novelty of combina

The Ing<nloa? Invention of a Treas
ury Kxpert Facilitate* the
Haudliing Tthereof.
An old treasury employe has in
vented an ingenius coin counting
machine. It consists of a round
metal hopper into which coins are
poured. From this the coins are fed
into an attachment, or head, as it is
called, which is kept constantly re
volving by a crank operated by hand.
Each revolution carries six or more
coins through a registering device
which keeps track of the exact num
ber. There is a different-sized head
for each coin and the change from
nickels to pennies or from dimes to
quarters or coins of larger denomina
tion can be made instantly. It is
estimated that with one of thejse
machines a strong boy can accurately
perform the work of five or six
clerks, says a Washington report. A
device has also been planned which
will count the coins in 100 or 200
lots and by the use of a paper carton
they may be done up in packages
ready for handling or shipment. By
running them consecutively through
the various heads a lot of coins may
be separated and counted at the same
time. The machine is expected to
revolutionize coin counting methods.
