Savd by Hi Leg. ; A sailor with a cork leg was once shipwrecked on a' cannibal island. He saw preparations being made for the feast, of which he was to be the piece de resistance, and with commendable presence of mind he asked the chief ("chef") if he did not think it would be as well if be tasted a sample first. The chief thought it an excellent sug gestion, "and so the man held up his cork leg while a sample was cot from it. The chief decided the nan was too old. tough and tasteless, and so his life was spa-ed. Egypt Made First Pons. Pens were first made in Egypt and were made of a kind of reed. The ancients did not seem to know that good pens could be made from goose quills. One Isidore, who died la 636. mentions both reeds and feathers as suitable for pens. Swan quills as be ing even better than goose quills were referred to In 1320. Steel pens were invented in the first part of the nine teenth century. People were slow to use them; because the metal was not sufficiently elastic. Perry cut slits in steel pens la 1S30, and that settled quUla. ooo Columns WANT AD ft EI HIT Tne following are replies to Palla dium Want Ads. received at this of fice.

Is It true that men prefer beauty to good sense; What will you say when yon ask for money and he says, "What did you do with that dollar 1 gave yon last year?" HANGING BASKETS. An Ingenious Way of Watering the Heavy Specimens. Watering our hanging baskets, says a contributor to the discovery column of Good Housekeeping, was a problem. They were too heavy to take down, and it was almost impossible to wet them thoroughly with a watering pot When they were given ; a thorough "WHBBX THXaX S A WILL THttK'S WAT." soaking the water would drip on the piazza railing, making muddy pools. So we bit oa a scheme. We bought two yards of awning duck, had grom mets put in the upper corners and by means of two small screw hooks oa the inside of the piazza beam direct ly over the baskets hung this apron back of the baskets, the lower end extending out away from the piazza and held in position by strings front the lower corners to a temporary vn w.T;e grpunqv 4 ssbsji IE brands, 5c to $1.50 pkgs.

Cologne For Tired Foot. The girl who suffers with her feet as soon as summer comes will often 2nd relief by bathing them frequently with cologne or alcohol. Do not begrudge the time spent in removing shoes and stockings to bathe the feet whenever especially tired. To suffer with the feet is a greater strain on the nervosa system, not to mention one's temper, than most women real ize. Nothing should be counted too much trouble that will give even tem porary relief. Besides cologne rubbing, the woman with sensitive feet should be particular about her shoes and stockings. Count lng cost with footgear is the greatest mistake she can make. Probably she can find moderate priced ready made shoes that will fit her. but If she can not she should hunt some one who can combine comfort with style and have shoes made If they are three times as expensive as she is accustomed to pay. if darns hurt her feet it Is not econ omy to darn. Buy cheaper stockings and throw them away as soon as boles appear or turn tnem over to some member of the family who knows not the meaning of sensitive feet. For Huffy Hair. The girl whose hair will not curl naturally can save herself many a bout with hot tongs by wetting the hair thoroughly with equal parts of green soap and water. This should bo carefully rinsed off with fresh water. While the hair is still damp It can be fluffed by running the fingers through It or by tying narrow ribbons tightly around the bead, as a filet Is worn, and combing up the hair be tween. Unless the hair has a tendency to oillness the green soap mixture should not be used too often, as it Is drying In Its effects. A Dont For Girls. Don't ever nag." If you have to find fault or speak on any subject thatJ you know will be distasteful say what you have to say and have done with It. There is nothing more exasperat ing than a continual harking back to an unpleasantness. When Men Powdered Their Fa The use of powders for the hair and face, which began in - the sixteenth century, infected the men. Henry III. bad the habit of parading the streets of Paris, his face covered with white and red paste. like a faded coquette, and his hair filled with violet powder and scented with musk. Powders were made of all colors, and the infatuation waa such that servant girls were afraid to be seen In public with their hair of the natural color and. not being able to buy that used by their employ ers, employed, sawdust as a substitute.

Lady Laurler. in speaking of the women of Canada recently, said that it still is fashionable there, "be you rich or poor, plain or aristocratic, to be known in your community as a fine housekeeper." Mrs. Nicholas Loagworth was one of the first women la the country to wear a "rat," and It is said she wore the biggest ones too. The fact that she no longer wears a pompadour, but dresses her hair in the simplest fash ion, is proof positive of the fact that this Is now the style. The smart houses of London bow have waitresses and parlor maids where manservants were once in de mand. It is found that the women are much more ornamental In their black frocks and white aprons sod caps. The caterers supply them, and it looks more like the servants of the bouse when the retinue appears. The women do the work as well, if not better, and the caterers find they are more likely to be permanent and can be depended upon. Miss LIHUn Roff is the first woman to take the degree of bachelor of di vinity in the London university. She entered for the examination against the wishes of msny members of the faculty, as only a few women have ever desired the degree. Miss Ron, however! persisted in going in for the distinction. The examination la un usually nglq. Miss Roff was the only woman in fifty taking the examination. and she came out with the highest per centage. At St Pancras. in England, there Is a school where fathers are taught to take care of the bouse snd the chil dren in anticipation of the time when women go out to do the work and men must sit at home and mind the bouse. There used to be a time when a man out of a Job would have to let his wife go out and do washing or cleaning and wb?o ahe came home at night she would bare to get her own bouse In order. Now the men will be expect ed to do thtt for their wiTes. The course in housekeeping will also be of benefit to men whose wires are sick or absent. Sga, Mrs. Robley D. Evans, wife of Fighting Rob. lets la a curious little beam of sidelight oa American aaral history la a story to one of her friends In Washington, tefliag bow It came to pass the wives of officers were barred from accompanying them 00 warships. When she waa young. Mrs. Evans says, a defeated South American revolution ist sneaked aboard an American bat tlesblp wbea It was ta one of the trop ical ports on a neutral mission. Mak ing his way to the wife of the com mander, he toM such a tale of his wrongs that she consented to hide him in the ship's hold. It was not until he was msny miles out at sea that the commander learned the revolutionist was stowed s board. In violation, of course, of International law. There was a mighty outcry. Mrs. Evans says, when the facts reached Wsshlagtoa. The sutboritles then made the rule banishing women from warships. WANT PERUfTS ISSUED.

Americans like to boast of free speech, free press and free everything: while they look with pity oa the Gown trodden and oppressed Individuals who are the subjects of sultan or czar, but they surHy must know that right here In the -land of the free and the noma of the I rave- we have absolute mon archies ruled by despots. The good tempered man who must humor every whtra of aa unreasonable woman knows nothing about a happy home life. It Is impossible to lore a woman who must be obeyed absolut. ly. though many wives complacently point tt the devotion of their adoring husbaala just because those husbands allow them to have their own way la everything. But there Is just as much unhappl ness In the home where the husband is the tyrant as where the wife rules. Out In the workl some men pass for good citizens and devoted fathers and husbands, but the home folks could tell a different story. There are women living In luxury who never hare a penny to call their own and who have to resort to all sorts of trickery to ob tain things they want. It isn't enough tnac a woman has plenty to eat and fine clothes to wear, no matter what some husbands think on the subject, And It Isn't only money thst makes domestic happiness. Some husbands are so made up that they cannot be easy unless they -manage" every de tail of the housekeeping and make everything conform to their pleasure. Entertaining, church work, aousecleaa Ing. dozens of feminine occupations, have to be carried on by stealth Is many homes simply because the hus band and father acta like a three-year-old. The prophet of old pronounced a woe upon the nation whose ruler was a ' child, but If he lived In these day chlldlfh despots woukl be too nvmer ous to attract special attention most likely. Of course parents are to blame, but no one could possibly like the pert, saucy children who make slaves of their fathers and mothers. The for ward, uppish children lay down the law as calmly as any monarch Issues decrees. The mother who does with, out clothes to gergaouary attire her daughter la neaping up trouble for her self as sure as anything. Sometimes the tyrant Is a rich rela tive whom the whole family must obey to keep ta a good hasaor. - . There are people who sresochstsres to the deaaads of society that they do not have enough to eat In order to spend the money on dress and eater- tainlng, and If they do not lead a Ufa of slavery then no one does. To be ruled by what people will say fa an. other form of serfdom, says an ex change, and yet In some homes that Is the only recognized law. DIET FOR THE FAT. Sugar and Starchy Poods to Be Avoid- eoWuley Vegetables and Water. It Is popularly believed that an fat persons are gross feeders, but this Is not true. Indeed, the reverse Is often the case. Obesity may be a disease. ; rather, a prominent symptom of one. the trouble being with the Inter, nal chemistry of nutrition a disease of metabolism, ss it is called. It Is comparable to diabetes nearly related to tt. la fact, la this disease swear ss formed la excess In tbe system even hen very little Is taken with, the food, and so In obesity there Is a tend ency to the formation of fat In the body, even If little fat forming food Is eaten. In most cases much can bo done by a regulation of the diet. Tbe amount of most should not be increased, but the quantity of sugar and starchy foods should be reduced, their place being taken by nonstarehy vegetables, such as spinach, cauliflower and salsds. The foods to be avoided or taken In great moderation are those which contain much starch, such as rice and potatoes and aft smsfs ptos. puddings snd candy. Tea and coffee should be taken without sugar If taken at all. and chocolate should be ted entirely. - Bread Is fattening, but for of diet. Irs amount can. limited, and ft should be toasted. Fats are leas harmful than surer starch and amy be allowed ta Dod eratlon la the form of nutter and ga&j ; OD. i-;: - i . The belief thst the drfakiasj of ter makes fat Is erroneous. - If eats Juicy vegetables aad ssnsi larlj less sweet fruits, such, ss spples aad grapefruit, and abandons -tin use of sugar, there win be a natural reduc tion la tbe amount of water taken, but one should drink all that Is needed to quench thirst. ... , : , .
