One marvels on hearing her. for the stately slow voiced harp has become In these young hands an In strument to dazzle and delight. With each successive number the audience became more enthusiastic."

LIVES IN A TREE TOP Man's Health Restored After Being Aloft Three Years in Camp ('amp Aloft Is the name of a tree top home in Champaign county, Ohio, for which I). IX Steinberger has lived for three years. When ho took thus literally to the woods he was sup posed to be In the last stages on con sumption. rhyslclans gave him six months to live. He welshed only 100 pounds, and when be crawled out to Colorado, tho doctors there sent him home so that he wouldn't die on their hands and swell their death rate. So Mr. Steinberger who had been an artist before he became a consump tive got back to Ohio and took his own case In hand. He picked out a likely White oak tree and established bis residence In Its upper branches, 70 feet from the ground. There, through summer and winter, he has slept on a od of houghs, done much of 'his own work, received his friends and breathed the pure air, which has brought back complete health. There are two means of ascent to the top of the tree, lly one a spur ladder runs up a neighboring tree, from which a horizontal bridge car ries one across to the house tree on which the ascent Is completed by a scaling ladder. This, however. Is too hazardous for many of Stelnher- ger's guests. He therefore, contrived a "cliff dweller's swing," by which visitors can bo hoisted aloft by ropes and pulley.

"I firmly believe In the treetop cure for consumption," be continued, "Any afflicted person can try It at small cost. I erected this platform with my own hands and there Is no roof over Camp Aloft, except In stormy weather when a canopy is drawn overhead.

HOUSEWIFELY HINTS New' Carpet Out of Old Ones As we needed u new stair carpet and did not feel that we could afford one, I began to look around the house to see what there was on hand that could be used. In tho attic I found a worn-out body brussels carpet,' the back of which was a light tan. I rip ped the seams and on the back of the strips made a small stenciled border In brown. We now have a very pretty artistic stair carpet that weurs like iron and looks to thoo not in the secret, like a new art fabric. From Wioinan'd Home Companion for September. The Next Best Thing.
