One-half teacup of this washing fluid and one-half a bar of soap shaved are placed in a boiler of cold water. The clothes are put In and allowed to reach the boiling point and a little over.

I untie mine in the morning and wash the covers and dry, Ironing while damp. Put right back and knot far apart, which can be all done within an hour and a half. Then my comfortables are ready to go back upon the beds after dinner. This is no trouble and a far better way than putting the whole comfortable into a tub of water. That method takes from two to three hours to dry. In making the quilts I use the best of cotton and 1 would not think of putting them into water when only the cover is really soiled. If this Is of help I may come again. MRS.

RILOX ••The Tasteless Castor Oil** 25c per Bottle at Druggists MUSES English Newspaper Depicts Military Operations Around Fortress London. April 17 The Times publishes a long and critical account of the siege and capture of Adrlanople from a corre spondent who visited that city imme diately after it was taken by the allies. It shows that tlie defense of Adrlanople, though stubborn, was not as skillful and spirited as hail been supposed and that the difficulties the Servians and Bul garians had to overcome in the final as sault have been very much exaggerated. Tit# correspondent attributes the fall of the fortress in a great measure to lack of spade work on the part of the Turks and Bays that in the final assault the main wonks were almost indefensible. The Infantry frenches on Arnutkeut ridge were nothjng more than field works that a brigade of Indian Infantry would have been aBhamed of. "When I remember the Ladysmith de fenses and the Russian works which the Japanese had to force at I.lo Yang," continues the correspondent, "and coin rare them with the parodies on niilltary englneerlng which were defended at Adrlanople for five months, my opinion is that Adrlanople could anil ought to have been talten at any time during those five months.

A CHAPTER FROM THE DIARY OF A MANICURE LADY What She Sees and Hears—The “Confessional’’ for Many a “Grouch” and Many a Joy—Goes On With Her Work and Has Been Dubbed “The Divinity That Shapes Our Ends”—Beautiful Hands and How to Keep Them Dr DOLLY DALRYMPLE Has it ever occurred to you what a kaleidoscope life the little manicure lacfy leads? Her days are filled dealing with every sort and condition of people from the pretty budding debutante to the grouchy old dowager, and tales of woe are told to her as though she were a sort of “con fessional.” Somebody has suggested that the mani cure lady Is the “divinity that shapes our ends,” and while the ends referred to more specifically are the pink tipped fing ers and the prettily polished nails, there I is another which the divinity by a word or a smile, a look or a gesture, sometimes is able to shape, and that end is the end of some difficulty that we are “up against,” when everything is going^wrong and the whole world is at sixes and sevens. Over at Mrs. A. B. Dennerle’s fashion able and well equipped hair dressing and manicuring parlors there is a pretty little manicure lady with big brown eyes and wavy black hair, and the sweetest sort of a smile, who is a perfect joy to know. Not only does she give the very best and most up to date manicure, but she has a great deal of personal charm, and be sides she is a woman who is “doing things.” Mrs. L. P. Bush, for that is the little manicure lady's name, is making a fine reputation as a manicurist, and she Is building her way up, and is one of the cogs in the mighty wheel of life, shoulder to shoulder with the brave women of this day, who are forging forward and earn ing their living by their ability, perse verance and determination. A few days ago Mrs. Bush was talking tp me about a very different side of life in the manicure lady’s existence than I had ever thought of before. “Sometimes,” said she, “I wonder if there is any place so teeming with oppor tunity to study human nature as the manicurist shop? The different phases of humanity with which I come In contact have made me a closer student than I’ve ever been before. For instance, the other day a customer came in who has had the very hardest luck tale to _tell that you ever heard of, by way of apology for the appearance of her hands and nails. She hadn’t had a cook in two weeks and she'd been doing the cooking herself, and I didn’t doubt it, for her hands looked the part. She was going to a card party that afternoon and came In to have her nails done. They were absolutely fluted and scalloppd, the way she had cut them; she remarked that she never used a file, and they were the color of stove polish, they were so black. I couldn’t understand how such a pretty woman could possibly allow her nails to get in such a condition, but she had, and that settled It. It was up to me to transform them into pretty, shin ing things, that would do her.credit when she played cards that afternoon! A few days later she came back to me and told be that her nails were admired so much at the card party that she felt like I ought to know it and so she’d come to give me the credit. Rather nice of her, wasn't it?”. ‘‘I suppose the men who have their nails done are the most amusing feature of your work, aren’t them?” I asked. "Some of them are very funny,” said ■Mrs. Bush. "I recall not long ago a man came in to have his nails done, and be was the worst grouch I have ever seen. I thought he hail mistaken the place. What he needed instead of a manicurist was a sunshine doctor or the bluebird of hap piness to help him out of the plough of despond he was in. lie had enough dirt under his nails to have filled In a part of the new TutWtler hotel lot, or he might have started In the real estate business with It and made a success. 1 began to talk to him, and before I knew it I dis covered that he’d had a lot of trouble that had gotten on his nerves and he'd neglected his personal appearance entirely and didn't care whether school kept or not. While 1 was doing his nails I talked to him about a lot of pleasant things, and I wish you could have seen him change. Jfe was like a different person when he left. So you see the manicure lady is often called upon to help people out of difficulties as well as to do their nails.” “Aren’t a lot of men sort of shy about going to a manicure parlor?” I asked. “They used to he,” was the reply, “but manicuring has become so necessary to the well groomed man that he doesn't hes itate now to have his nails done as often as it Is necessary.” "Somehow to me the hands are as ex pressive of a person’s character as their face,” f suggested. "They are more so in many instances,”, said Mrs. Bush. ‘Badly kept hails, some times nibbled off at. tlie end, poorly trimmed nails and unhealthy nails can spoil a person's appearance more than nearly anything else. It matters not how beautifully a woman or man is dressed, if their hands are neglected they have the appearance of a lack of grooming that is inexcusable.” “Can the habit of biting the nails be cured by manicuring?” r asked. “I have seen it done often,” Mrs. Bush told me. “You see. the first step toward curing tills evil Is the pride that a per son begins to feel in their nails after the very first manicure. They see the great difference that it makes in their hands. And if a woman has any vanity at all, that appeals to her immediately. Besides that, we sometimes treat such people like we do children—put something on their nails that is distasteful and sick ening when they nibble at them like a mouse does at a piece of cheese.” “f want to say this to the women of Bir mingham.” Mrs. Bush remarked in con clusion, “I have never seen better groomed hands than they have in this dirty, grimy town, where It Is almost impossible to have even dean hands, and eternal vig ilance is required, and the manicurist must work to keep them that, way, and she can only do It with the co-operation of the patron.” A SKIN OF BEAUTY )• A JOY FOREVER Dr. T.
