CARE OF HABbWOOD FLOORS.
Few housekeepers understand how
to care for hardwood floors. Simple
or elegant, there Is but. one mode or
treatment, says the California Ladies'
Magazine. Never put a drop or 011 or
any kind upon them. If soiled, ruo
them off thoroughly with a flannel
cloth wet with turpentine. When dry
apply a preparation of wax. When
this is finished and dry. polish them
with a cloth or brush made for the
purpose until clear and shining, as the
quality of the floor will admit, xai
carefully done will keep a wooden
floor in perfect condition.

The Modern Girl's Weapons, f
The present-day girl carries abort

weapons in the form of the newest hat

of the already sufficiently dangerous
hat pin, and the result is astonishing.

of seven or eight inches In length is
of no use whatever in securing tfys

the live coals tends to make coke of
the fresh fuel, consuming the smoke

start the fire, and' less fuel goes to
waste in gas or smoke, and there is
less gas and dirt in the furnace room

there is thus no waste. It is a very

Useful Turn-Ups. .
Policeman, mailcarriers, messenger
boys, business men and not a few
women lor several hours one day last
week took part in a search for a $5
gold piece which dropped from the
hand of a Ninth street business man
who had received R in change at the
postoffice. A lbt of smaller change
which had fallen at the same time
was soon recovered, but not the gold
coin. Very few cracks and crevices
among the -cobblestones escaped
canes and prying eyes, but allln vain,
Even pools of water were swept away,
but to no purpose.
It did not seem possible that., it
could have rolled more than a few
feet, although the street for half a
square was carefully scrutinized
rnat evening me missmg com was
found at least five milG3 away.
The man who had dropped it hur
ried out to his home in West Phila
delphia, Intending to return to a thea
ter. Putting on. his evening clothes;
he went to hang up the pair of trou
sers he had taken off when something
dropped to the floor with a ring. Be
, fore him lay the $5 gold piece.
When the piece fell it had landed
in the turned up fold of his trousers.
Show for Sightseers.
When President Roosevelt was go
ing from Oyster Bay to Washington
recently he and his party -passed
through Thirty-fourth street, the chief
executive bowing and smiling to those
who saluted him.
As the .mounted policemen 'who rod
ahead reached Thirty-fourth street a
big antomoblla with sightseers drew
up on the north side of the street to
let the carriages pass.
Suddenly the man with the mega
phone yelled out:
"Ladies and Gentlemen: Here
comes, the president of the United
States. I was one of his- Rough Riders
and arranged it with him to get here
at the same time as this machfne.
You see we are strictly up to date."
The passengers grinned, but the
grin changed to a puzzled expression
when, as the barker shouted, "Hello,
Colonel; you see I'm on deck," the
president bowed and smiled cordial
ly. 'They were not aware that he
would do the same to any one who had
the nerve to salute him as did the
bogus Rough Rider.
