A Sewing Chair Thats That and
Lots More
Amusements For Children on an Ocean
VoyageSummer Window Shades
That Make For Coolness A Delicious
Lemonade That Is Little Known
Dear Mabel New York became BO
Intolerably hot that we just rushed
down to Belle Harbor one Saturday
afternoon not long ago and luckily
found a charming cottage which had
not been rented so we took It and at
the present moment Im sitting on the
porch with a glorious view of the
v ocean In front of me for you must
vSJ know that Belle ll arbor Is only an
hours ride from town and right on
the ocean Well the chair that Im
occupying Is one of the Joys of my
life and I stumbled across It quite un
expectedly In a department shop last
week It Is called n sewing chair but
It has many other uses At first glance
you would take It for an ordinary
rocking chair with the peculiarity of
having solid sldfrs but when these
sides which are hinged at the seat
are let down Its other uses are well
understood These sides become trans
formed Into broad arms on which you
may lay your sewing or use your writ
Ing pad as Im doing now Except for
unusual work these arms are as good
as a table But Im not half through
with the attractions of the chair for
you can take the rockers off when you
want It to be stationary and fold them
up and the chair will rest firmly on
Its four legs What do you think of
that for a stunt piece of furniture
Gift For the Traveler
Dorothy D went abroad last week
and I made her such a pretty little
steamer present one that I found so
useful the last time 1 crossed Its a
simple portfolio made of gray canvas
with a single large pansy for
thoughts worked on the cover To
make the portfolio all that Is neces
sary are two pieces of cardboard the
desired size These are covered with
the canvas and lined with violet silk
The two materials 1 overcast together
aU round the edges With u hinge of
ribbon the portfolio Is complete Oh
res I forgot to say that on the re
verse side of the cover I embroidered
Dorothys monogram and that two rib
bons passed around the portfolio are
tied to keep the contents secure I
used my case for preserving prints and I
drawings while traveling
And talking of gifts when children
travel a few well chosen presents will
keep them happy It really takes very
little to amuse children A box of
gifts to last through the duyh of ocean
voyage can be arranged that may make
all the difference between a pleasant
and a disagreeable trip to both mother
and child Such a box was recently
got up for some children by a friend
of mine The outside box of goner
ous proportions was tied about with
n silk Hag for the youthful traveler
particularly If fie Is a boy wonts
to haunt the stars and stripes on all
patriotic occasions Each small box
put into the large one was numbered
with directions as to when it was to
be opened and how its contents were
to be used For Instance Box No 1
contained peppermints to be opened
after the first meal on board Box
Vo 2 had an exciting deck game to
be opened the next afternoon A
morning gift was a tablet and a set
of colored crayons Another gift was
a set of bean bags made of blue linen
marked with the owners Initials A
game of cards with the pictures of tho
masterpieces In art was a helpful gift
An outfit for maklntr minor lowers i
was a very suitable gift for the girl of
the party and to one of the boys Juat
learning to tell the time n dollar watoL
was given
Older little people frequently get
restless on long trips For them was
a box of candy made doubly sweet by
writing some little personal messages
and humorius sayings on bits of paper
and wrapping them around the bon
bons And what child would not love
to receive u pretty box containing n
fountain pen a boolaof stamps a few
special delivery stamps postal cards
and paper wrappers Little red leath
I er record books would not come amiss
I either as the young traveler would
feel most Important when making
notes of the trip And what fun It
would be to read such notes written
by a child of an Imaginative mind
The Double Shade
I think It so queer that more house
keepers do not know about double
Guides that art to bo had fur win
lows In summer they are particular
y desirable They are not wonderful
ly I new but as I have just hinted
very few women know of their ex
istence Most women who want to
keep out the glare of the summer sun
yet have attractive window effects
from tho Inside use two sets of shades
the dark green ones hanging next the
window to keep out the sun and the
white ones next the room over which
to hang curtains of cool looking net or
muslin This is bunglesome and un
necessary as it Is possible to buy
shades that are green on the outside
and white or cream on the inside or if
you want the dark side next the win
dow they can be made In this way
Mother has just brought me a glass
of frog lemonade You never heard
of It Probably not Its a southern
drink that Is perfectly delicious and I
know youll bless me one of these hot
days If I give you the recipe Take u
large punch bowl put In u pound of
sugar three quarts of water the juice
of two dozen lemons and one of pine
apple and add two bottles of seltzer
water Mix all well Add a dozen or
so rljjy strawberries t chcrHcg and
thin slices of pineapple and lemon If
not sweet enough add more sugar
When thoroughly mixed add a large
sqnjm gX icy iiml let the mixture get
very before serving Fill the
glasses one quarter full of crushed Ice
and fill up with the lemonade adding
with It some of the fruit This Is I a
very generous quantity but the pro
portions could bo easily reduced

Call her that wont you whenever
you speak of her My wife That
has a good strong true ring that does
the soul good So many men speak of
her as she thinks this or that
The woman who never gets higher
In the mind of her husband than she
never holds a very close relation to the
great world about her She stays In
the home she does all that comes to
her to do faithfully and well she lives
and loves and wears soul and body out
and never is known outside this little
round save by Him who sees and
knows us all to the very hearts core
But my wife There she goes now

Household Hints
Do you know hat coffee stains even
when there Is cream In the coffee can
be removed from the most delicate silk i
ur woolen fabrics by brushing the apots
I with pure glycerin IJInse In luke
warm water and press on the wrong
side until quite dry The glycerin nb
sorbs both the coloring matter and the
Do you know If a cloth Is wetted In
vinegar and wrung out as dry as pos
sible with the hands and wrapped
around cheese and then the whole put
In u large paper big and kept in a
cool place the cheese will retain the
moisture and freshness of a newly cut
cheese and will not mold
Do you know that In peeling apples
the brown satin that generally appears
on peeled slices can be avoided by set
ting each slice as it is peeled in a basin
of cold water Thus no contact with
the air Is possible and the stain Is
avoidable The water draws out the acids and i
there is a sacrifice of flavor to color if
this plan Is used and the apples arc
soaked too long Any discolored slices
will turn white again if rubbed with
a piece of lemon
Do you know that sometimes the
most careful washing will not remove
tho flavor and odor of food from tho
utensil In which It was cooked
This is frequently the case with fish
onion cabbage etc but there is a
remedy which may be a little trouble
and yet is well worth trying After
any of these articles have been cooked
wash the utensil well with soap and
water Then nearly fill It with cold
voter and for each quart of water add
one tablespoonful of dissolved washing j
Place on the fire and let the woterI I
get boiling hot Now pour the water I
into the sink Rinse the utensil with
clean water and on wiping it dry it
will be found perfectly sweet
