TO TEST YOUR APPLICATION Hugo Muncterbsrg Gives a Simple Way to Conduct Really Interest ing Experiment. Have your friends the ability to hold their attention, or does it become quickly fatigued? A simple experi ment will show you, writes Llugo Munsterberg in the Youth’s Compan ion. Give each person a column from a newspaper, and have each one cross out with a pencil every letter A and every letter R. Keep an eye on your watch, and when half a minute has passed, say “Now," as a signal for each experimenter to make a mark at the word that he has just reached. Keep this up for live minutes, and then count how many A’s and how many R’s each one marked in the first half-minute, how many in the fifth, and how many in the tenth, and see how many each peison overlooked in each half-minute. Some persons will do well at the be ginning, but will soon become inatten tive. In the last four half-minutes they will mark few letters, and over look many. Others will do better in the second and third half-minute than in the first, and their attention will be sharper at the end than at the begin ning. Loyal to His "Granny.” The grandfather of a boy of six or seven years is a man of a great deal of prominence in the world of letters and affairs. A lady calling at the home of this gentleman was being en tertained for a few minutes by the little grandson and the caller said: "You ought to be very proud of your grandfather. You know that he is a great man.” “Huh!" said the boy. “If you think that my grandfather is a great man you just ought to know my grand mother!" —Womans Home Compan ion. Kindness Appreciated.

The first step in polishing a soft wood floor is to see that it is perfect ly smooth and clean, it it has beep already painted or varnished th* stains should he removed with strong ammonia and thorough scraping, w'hen all cracks and dents should bo closed with putty and a “filler” applied all over. This can be purchased at most o.band varnish shops, and should either be mixed with a iittle color or a su.Ticlent quantity of floor stain should te added. The tiller should be put on with a fiat brush or piece of cloth and worked in one direction with the grain of the wood, while on completion of the process the room should be closed for 24 hours. At the end of that time the boards should be rubbed until they shire, with a long handled, heavy weighted broom, over which a piece of carjyet has been tacked, and this process may be re peated ad libitum. Finally the floor may be polished with boiled linseed oil and turpentine, this mixture being rubbed well in with a cloth and then left for an hear or two to dry. after which it must be again polished with the weighted brush. Instead of a final touch of this de scription, the floor may be finished with a coat of varnish or shellac or with some prepared hardwood treat ment. both of which should be put on evenly and thinlv with a weighted brush or with an old piece of carpet. In order to keep the floor at its best after rhe polishing process has been completed, it should never be washed with water, but after all the dust has been removed crude petro leum should be rubbed in and left to dry r . jjrnousE Endives, stewed, make a pleasant change as a vegetable. Cold sauce or fruit added to junket makes a pleasant change. To cook macaroni without sticking use a vessel wi.h a sieve bottom. To clean rusty knitting needles rub with kerosene and polish with pum ice. People who suffer from acidity should eat acid fruit with farinaceous food. Flies don’t come around without be ing invited and the invitation consists of refuse. With a steam cooker an entire meal can be cooked over one burner of the gas stove. In cooking asparagus for salad it should be dropped into cold water when done. Flowered cretonnes make the best covers for beds on the out of-doors sleeping porch. The most economical way to cook mushrooms is to stew them, because all the stalks can be used. Left-over strips of wall paper can be used for the "lining papers” that are put under straw matting. Fruit Frappe With Nuts. Almost every woman nowadays has her own special frappe combination, with which she delights to mystify her guests. Into the bottom of the frappe glass put a generous spoonful of preserved straw berneC. on top of the berries come the ice cream, vaniia in this case, then a Spoonful of whipped cream, and on top of the cream a grating of English walnuts. All sorts of fruit combinations are used as foundation for the frappes, and the covering for the whipped cream is variously cocoa, grated macaroons, chopped 'nuts, a sprinkle of cinnamon or candied rose leaves. Pretty little frappe glasses in the American pressed ware, light and dainty, can now be purchased as low as 80 cents a dozen. In serving, each glass is set on a pretty china plate with a little doily between the glass and the plate. A spoon, of course, goes with it. Vegetarian Sausages. One and one-half cups lima beans, two tablespoons butter one teaspoon salt, a dash tabasco sauce. Soak the beans ever night, cook them in salted water until soft, drain perfectly dry and then squeeze the pulp through a potato ricer. Beat in the butter and seasoning. If not moist enough, add one beaten egg or as much of it as re quired. making the paste so soft that it can be rolled into croquets. Shape like sausage, dip in beaten egg and flour, and fry in butter until brown. Useful for Carrying Dishes. A cheese bdx with part of a barrel hoop for a handle makes a very con venient tray for carrying several dishes of food —to or from the cellar, from kßchen to dining room, etc., says Farm and Fireside. One can use It also for bringing vegetables from the cellar or in from the garden A coat of enamel pa-int makes the tray easy to keep clean and fresh looking. Bran for Cleaning. Bran filled into cheesecloth bags id excellent for cleaning wall paper. It is also better than soap for the bath tub and for the neck, face and hands nothing is better. It is as cleansing for clothes as for the body. Boiled and the water used the same as soap suds, it is as satisfactory for delicate fabrics as soap and dees not Injure the color. To Bleech Faded Blouses and Dresses. The colored dress or blouse that has become faded with frequent launder ings, or from wear in the sun. may be bleached to a clear white by boiling in cream of tartar water The cor rect quantity to be used to make the garment a pure white is a teaspooc ful of ’he powder to a quart of water Utaful Hint. Wher washing saucepans always sew a good-sized pearl button to one corner of the dishcloth This is very good, as it simplifies washing up tre mendously. Pepper Relish.

This may be kept two years ar.d be as good as when first made. To Kill an Unpleasant Odor. Dri-d orange peel allowed to smot her on a piece of red-hot irou or on an old shovel will kill any bad odor in a room and leave a fragrant one behind. THE eHium THOUSANDS OF DRAGON FLIES Queer Sight Witnessed by a French Naturalist While Making a Tour Through Morbihan. A professor of zoology at Lille, M. Charles Barrios, was making a tour through Morbihan, in France. As he was walking along the road he noticed that a multitude of dragon flies were alighting on the telegraph wires. The singular thing about it was that they all rested at an equal distance from each other, and all occupied the same position, with head turned toward the west. From all sides the dragon flie3 ar rived and always placed themselves in the same position, and at the seme distance from each other. They re mained as if glued to the w ire, motion less and paralyzed. Each new arrival few over the fixed bodies of the others and took its place in the line. This chain stretched itself out to ward the west, and turned toward the setting sun. Professor Barrios fol lowed the route for a long distance and found the same strange phe nomenon. He estimated the number at 60,000, at least. At an abrupt turn of the road to the south, the telegraph line turned also. There not a dragon fly was in sight! The wire was abso lutely free from them! With the change of direction it seemed to have lost attraction for them. Was this chance? Did the electric currents running from the east to the west exercise any influence upon these insects? Was it the solar re flection? Explain it, who can. In any case it would be interesting to know whether this phenomenon be an isolated one or not KING’S SIGNPUST IS QUAINT Surmounted by Device in Oak, Depict ing the God Tyr and the Great Mythological Wolf.

An apparently empty bottle may be made to bio \ out a candle. The trick is really an interesting scientific ex periment, showing how compressed air, directly the pressure which con fines it ie removed, tends to assume the normal density of the atmosphere. We take an ordinary bottle and. see ing that it is empty and dry, we place the ball of the thumb over the mouth with just a small aperture uncovered. Then, placing our mouth to this, we blow steadily and continuously into the bottle. Tlie result is that the air in the bot tle is compressed. When we take our mouth away we insure that no air shall escape by instantly closing the whole aperture with the ball of the thumb which is already pressed over part of the opening. Now we invert the bottle and. plac ing the mouth against the flame of a lighted candle, we remove so much of our hand as will make an opening sim- Blowing Out Candle. ilar to that into which we blew. The result is that the compressed air, di rectly the pressure is removed, rushes out and blows upon the flame. It is well to use a small candle, as if we have a large candle with a big flame the pressure may not be sufficient to extinguish the flame. If we perform the trick in front of a number of spec tators we must not let them see us blow into the bottle. This part of the performance can be done outside the room, and we can bring the bottle in with our thumb over the opening, keeping it there til) the moment when we want to release the air. This can be done in such a way as not to at tract notice. METALS DEARER THAN GOLD Iridium, for Instance, Is Three Times as Expensive—Osmium Is Dearer and Heavier. Gold is generally looked on as the last word in costliness, but, as a mat ter of fact, there are more metals dearer than gold than there arc cheap er. The number of known metals is about seventy. iridium, for instance, of which a big find was made the other day in Aus tria, is three times as expensive as gold. Gold is worth nearly S2O an ounce. Iridium is worth some $62, though the price will probably come down now. Osmium is another metal much dearer than gold. It costs about SSO an ounce. It is by far the heaviest of all known substances, being more than 22 times as heavy as water. If pennies were Viade of osmium it would tax one’s strength to carry the change of half a dollar. This metal has the pe culiar property of being able to stand without melting the most intense heat known. Palladium, about S4O an ounce, is ju*L the reverse. It is quite easy tn make palladium vanish in steam. Be ing of a white, silvery color, and un tarn ishable, it is used for the division marks on scales and delicate scientific instruments.

SERVE TWO PURPOSES MORNING FROCKS ALSO LOOK WELL ON TENNIS COURT. Either in White Serge or Linen They Will Be Found Adaptable —Coats for Outdoor Sports Made on Bulgarian Lines. There aie many little frocks this season designed for general morning wear, which are entirely comfortable and appropriate for tennis, therefore possessing one of these one need not change ones frock in order to enjoy a game.

There are also many good English models of tweed on these same lines, designed principally for shooting or moor cos tumes, but available for any other oufing wear. There are many coats for outdoor sports made on the Bulgarian lines. One of the sketches in the large cut, for instance, shows a coat of blue Serge, made on Bulgarian lines, with sailor collar and cuffs of white linen or serge. Sweaters show moio variety than they once did. One may have them any length from hip length to full length and in many shapes. The Bul garian lines are also in e\ idence SEPARATE COATS OF PLAID In Combination With Skirt of White Muslin or Other Material They Are Always Effective. If one does not care to adopt a coat suit of plaid for any occasion one may like to take up the idea of wearing a siicr’ plaid coat with a skirt of white muslin or crepe of voile or satin. The latter combination is quite effective for any afternoon occasion, especially in the open, and the adding of plaid silk or voile in any way to a white crepe gown is a fashion that grows in power as people see how attractive it is. There is no doubt that the public in general has accepted the coat of a different color from the skirt and as they have gone through the various paths of fashion that led to black, red, purple and green coats with white skirts it is only a tiny step further to ask them to wear Scotch plaid coats. After all the coat of today is such a diminutive affair, which ends ihe mo ment it begins, that the dash of color is not inartistic. These negiige coats have a great deal of charm about them, especially in summer, and if a woman will try the fashion first in cotton and wear it over a soft draped white skirt she can then find out without spending too much money whether or not she looks well in the combination. Ribbon Flowers on Parasols. Small bunches of black and white satin rosebuds appear on the edge of one of the ribs and upon the handie of small parasols. Medium large pink ribbon roses and foliage are arranged in wreath form around some parasols. Fashion. She's a jade. She misleads many. She makes dictations. Her followers are blind.

GIVE DAINTINESS AND CHARM Attractive Methods of Dressing the Neck Are the Most Effective of Many Seasons. < "Very few of the new gowns have high collars, and aside from the suit ability of this fashion to warm weath er the ways in which it is presented are decidedly attractive. Never has there been a more charming fashion than that of soft folds of net. tulle or lace to outline the neck. These are drawn surplice-like across the bust above a filmv vest, which is usually employed to fill in a gown above the girdle. There are many waist models that have a fichu of white cotton net drawn about the shoulders and half way down the front of the waist, where it meets a cross line of cord ing which tops 'a waistcoat of net mounted on white china silk. Lace is not used at all in these models, so that tiny net frillings edge the drap ery about the throat. Another new touch is a frilling made of crisp white crepe. This may be bought by the yard and may either be used as a flat border for a net or chiffon trimming, or set so that it stands up from the edge ct the neck, I which opens Medici fashion. Mannish little waistcoats of net or mousseline are trimmed with prim rows of but tons down the middle and sometimes accompanied by a little vest pocket. Glover Hint. A small piece of absorbent cotton put in the palms will absorb the per spiration that prevents many wonleD from wearing gloves with any com fort during the summer. PROSPECTS OF FALL FABRICS With Other Novelties Brocaded Moire Is to Have High Place in the Coming Season's Styles. Among the novelties promised for autumn is brocaded moire. This is de scribed as moire cloth with brocaded satin floral figures in old French de signs. Brocaded crepe de chine, w hich was a conspicuous offering this spring, promises to be a favorite material for evening gowns. In the heavier ma terial* all "pile fabrics," including vel vets, chinchillas, plushes and velours de laine are going to be worn. Speaking of plush, an interesting de velopment in midsummer millinery is the new hats with soft crowns of that material. Most of them are in white, but they are shown also in black and col ors. One seen on Fifth avenue the other day had both the crown and the brim of white plush, with a long felt nap. The brim was faced with pink straw, which also formed the band around the crown and was tied in a bow in front. The only other trim ming was a brace of small white wings at the left side. Traveler’s Nightrobe. There is a nightgown designed espe cially for travelers who must spend the night on a train or boat. It is prefer ably made of black silk and has a pocket in which toilet articles may be tucked and a big hood, which may be slipped over disheveled hair for the trip from the berth to the dressing loom. Some women wear a black eIIk cap to save annoyance from dust and cinders and to keep the hair from get ting disarranged while sleeping. Belt Modes. TK£ best way to describe the man ner in which belts are now worn i j to say that they are hung about the waist. says the Philadelphia Times, j This description is quite correct.

FORTY YEARS AGO almost every mother thought her child must have PAREGORIC or laudanum to make it sleep. These drugs will produce sleep, and a FEW DROPS TOO MAHY will produce the SLEEP FROM "WHICH THERE IS NO WAKING. Many are the children who have been killed or whose health bus been ruined for life by paregoric, lauda num and morphine, each of which is a narcotic product of opium. Druggists are prohibited from selling either of the narcotics named to children at all, or to anybody without labelling them “ poison.” The definition of “narcotic” is : “A medicine which relieves pain and produces sleep, but uhtch in poison ous doses produces stupor, coma, convulsions ami death." The taste and smell of medicines containing opium are disguised, and sold under the names of “ Drops,” “Cordials,” “Soothing Syrups,” etc. You should not permit any medicine to be given to your children without vou or your physician know of what it is composed.

His face, his shudder and the deep-drawn sigh which he gave were among the most impressive parts of one of his greatest creations. Asa rule he stern ly suppressed any levity on the stage, but one Saturday night, as he drew back the curtain, he said, in a sep ulchral whisper, “What have we for supper, Desdemona?" Alas! Miss Bateman was unequal to the strain and a merry laugh from the dead rang through the house. Never again, 1 believe, did Irving break his own rule of seriousness on the stage. It was told me (adds our correspondent) by my father, who was ai the supper par ty on the night it occurred.
