Commence when •he is fresh, soon after breakfast, having pre viously cut out two pairs of pillow eases, one j pair for yourself and another pair for the little daughter. a neat little work box or basket, thimble, thread and needles. Begin by basting up a pair for her; then commence together, first starting hers. Bbe will take great pride in trj'ing to have her work look as well as yours, but unless she is an unusually apt pupil her stitches will lie long and uneven. If not neatly done advise her gently to pull out her work and begin again, or, better still, tell her you will take them out for her, letting her go and have a race with her dog or a ride on her tricycle. She will come in with a fresher, clearer head and a steadier hand than if scolded and made to take out the misplaced stitches. IVhen she has finished the over handing on both pillow cases baste the hems for her and start her at the hemming. Cau tion her to have her stitches even, but Dot too short, ns (with beginners) very short stitches are apt to be crooked Keep your work along with hers. Above all things, try to keep up her interest, and when she conies to the button holes cut them for her, neatly overcasting the edges. Im press it upon her that she must be careful and take up very little of the goods, as it makes a much neater button hoi* ; then have her fasten the ends strongly and evenly. Now let her sew on her buttons, and when she has finished fold and put away, and if she has done them well she will be a very happy little girl and you a very proud mother. She may be several days in making them; do not hurry her, and, above all things, do not become impatient with her, and tel! her she shall finish them by a given time. % Next teach her to darn. Let her take a pair of her own stockings, the pair with the smallest holes, for large holes are so dis couraging to a beginner. Tell her that in order to make a neat darn sho must use a long, slender needle, and cotton not too coarse. It is best to darn over a cnina egg, going back and forth till the hole is covered, then cross the stitches, weaving in and out ■until the darn is as solid as the original material. Unless a girl learns the intricacies of darning when she is young, she is apt, when sho is grown up, to depend on "mamma," or, worse still, go with stockings tinmended, either of which is inexcusable. For a worn or a torn place in a dress, of course, you would not darn as you would the heel of a stocking, but baste a piece of the goods underneath, then darn back and forth with dainty, tiny stitches, till the rent is re paired, then with a damp cloth laid over the darn, press with a warm flat iron.—Annie Curd in Good Housekeeping. See thut she is supplied with ] Daughter, of tho Rich. The daughters of rich New York women are very frequently put at the beginning of the season in the hands of a trained nurse, who is responsible for their good condition h during the season, and whose duties are very " nearly as onerous as are those of the trainer of some champion of the prize ring. Her management is something like this: When the nurse thinks its time the bud was up sho wakens her, wraps her in a soft wool bath Tobe, and carries her in the dressing room, where she invests her with two garments of stout jersey cloth, and makes her either swing a pair of light Indian clubs for twenty minutes or takes the same time in exercise on a gymnastic bar. When the debutante is in full glow she is wrapped again in the bath robe, and carried to the bath room, where a white porcelain tub has been filled with warm water. Into this has been filing, before she conies, a French bran bag, the contents of which are bran, shavings of the finest olive oil soap, emollient pastes and orris root. This is used like a sponge in bathing, and on being squeezed emits a soft, creamy, perfumed lather, which leaves the skin smelling slightly of violets and as soft as velvet. After the bath tho young woman is thor oughly rubbed down with towels of a damask which is as soft as satin, for rough substance injures the of the skin If tho weather is cold a little cold cream is used and nibbed in carefully with the hand to prevent chapping and redness. The hair is smartly brushed for twenty minutes, the nails manicured, and while this luxurious young person is at tending to the rest of her toilet the nurse sees that the proper breakfast is prepared. This is simple—a bit of dry toast, a cup of choco • late, an egg and some rare steak, because she ' is obliged to eat so much trash at balls and dinners that this is the time when she absorbs her real nourishment. Then the attendant leaves her to her own devices until she comes to dress for tho evening. Another bath and a cup of hot fresh tea prepare her for the night's work, and when •he returns, jaded and exhausted, at 8 in the morning, the nurse is on hand to undress her, give her a little soothing brush to her hair, feed to her a cup of steaming bouillon, and, after putting her to bed, rub lier gently and •monthly in the massage fashion until all aches and weariness are gone, and she sinks off into eight hours of dreamless slumber. It is astonishing what fatigue, what an endless wearing course of dissipation a girl can go through, and come out of it as fresh as she went in, when somo one stands ready in this manner to repair all breaches made upon her youth and loveliness. Girls who have this care last ten years longer than those who are left to shift for themselves, and the money spent in this way generally proves in the end to be advantageously invested.—Pittsburg Bulletin. any texture < liiltlren Hear Too Much. The. innocence of childhood has been rudely brushed away aud the knowledge of evil has entered the pure soul of the child. Then the question arises how can this state of affairs lie remedied? One of the most certain ways , of counteracting this evil, is to avoid in discriminate conversation before children. \ I There is no greater evil existing right now in society than this indiscreet conversation be fore children. A lady visitor conies in, and in utter disregard of the presence of theehil dren who are in the room, the latest scandal is discussed, or a bit of gossip is dissect*si; a birth is announced with all the accompany ing circumstances, maybe the approaching j adv vt of a heir, is the latest news to be cir-1 cuiuted, and so the convei'sation goes on; I little ears drinking in, and wondering minds trying to make things At together and solve! U' 0 Histories discussed. Then parents in their own home circle often discuss subjects before their children that they would lie shocked, should some one suggest are injuri ous. They do not openly (which would lx? a far better) but by hints, and in ambiguous manner tell a piece of news which they assert the children don't understand, but which at the same time arouses their curiosities and proves more detrimental for the mystery that surrounds it. I will give two instances that have come under my observation recently, as it illus trates so well the subject : A young lad in his teens said to his mother in ray presence, " What is this about, Mrs. - looked up in surprise and said: "What do you mean ?" "Oh !" I e said, "there is no use to pretend ignorance, you know' what I mean ; I have seen you all with y our heads together, ancf heard you whispering, and Jim (a com panion) and I are on the track and are going to find out what it is. ?" She Tins gossip, what ever it was, had been discussed right in the home circle, and that is where the boy heard it. The other instance was a lady friend, who told me she was exceedingly particular never to discuss a scandal, or any subject before her children that children should not know. A few days lief ore with closed doors she was talking to her sister of a piece of new s she had just heard, when the door opened and her young daughter came in and said : "Manyna, excuse me, I was not listening, but came to the door and overheard something you said to auntie, and I want you to tell me all about it; I have heard some of it auy When asked where she heard it she way. said: "At school; all the girls know it." Now as my friend said, "We send our chil dren to a private school; pay the highest prices so we can have them associate with the best, and yet all the indecent gossip that is abroad is discussed among them." Now these school children get all their news at home. Were it not for indiscreet parents, there would be more innocent children. This may seem to mothers a hard assertion, but it is even so. Iu your hearts you no doubt earn estly desire the purity and innocence of your children, but in your conversations before them you are forgetful of their interests by your indiscretion.—Atlanta Constitution. A Well Dressed Wife. A man loves to see his wife well dressed. When she goes about in tatters, with big shoes, untidy skirts, soiled collar, and a halo of curl papers, if ho doesn't swear he thinks it. I don't believe in the economy of home toilets. I never take a dress that is done for and wear it in the house. When the life is gone out of it, it goes in the rag bag. I mako a duty of nice linen with jjlenty of laces, and my house gowns are not old, they are not wrappers, and they are not ugly. Another hobby of mine is my hair, which I will have as near tho poet's conception of 'her fragrant tresses' as possible. Then I have a whole lot of little devices—I perfume my eyebrows and lips; keep my bands soft and cool, my teeth in good order, and I make my doctor prescribe for a sweet breath. But don't p»ut that in the paper. I only tell you to give you an idea of the care required to keep a man in love with you. Men like to preach down extravagance, and style, and dress; but the woman who bangs her hair, powders The shine off her face, hides a blotch or scar under a piece of court pilaster, who wants pretty gloves and stock ings, trim slippers, perfumes, balms, cold creams, finger curls, and fancy notions to increase her charms is the woman who is ad mired every time. Those long, lean, lank, common sense women may gad about with their wholesome ugliness aud cheap simplic ity, but the profession of men who follow is not a long or . Verona Jarbeau in 8c.

Mending with tlie Machine. Where there is a sewing machine in the home it should be used as much as possible in the family mending. Borne women never think of using the machine for anything but making new or making over old garments, while others use it to do as much of the family mending as can be done conveniently. When there is a rip or a slit in a garment nothing can mend it as quickly as tho machine, while for sewing on a patch it is excellent. First baste the patch on evenly, j then sew with machine, dampen and press, J and the patched place will look as nice, if not nicer, than if done by hand. For boys' and men's clothes it is much better than hand sewing, owing to its being stronger. To be sure, when the material is very worn and thin the hand sewing is best, as tho machine stitching would be apt to tear the cloth, but where the fabric is strong and there is a good deal of patching to be done, the sewing machine will be found to be a great help to the tired mother w.iile repairing the family . wardrobe.— Boston Budget i I 1 It ■ * Working Girl's Adv.er. • "It's a girl's own fault if shœS treated with disrespect by her employers,''jsaid one pleas ant faced, gentle mannered yjung woman.

She (in imag ination) put on her satin dress, long gloves, slippers and v. hat not and started off with much interest. Auntie was the coachman who took her to the party and she was very ready to go to bed for the sake of getting started. The naxt night sbe went to Cali fornia to visit some little friends.

It is well known that'while the milk of a healthy womau never disagree* with a healthy child, that child cannot be fed with cow's milk without peril. Indeed, most cases of cholera infantum are among the bottle j fed, and a babe suffering from this disease will generally recover at once if it can have ] a more natural, nourishment. j One important difficulty with cow's milk for infants is—partly from its nature and partly from the freer and more copious draughts with which it is taken into the stomach—it tends to coagulate into large masses of solid cheese. This is thrown in sour lumps into tho bowels, and keeps them in a state of perpetual irritation. Now, lime water added to the milk—say one part in five j or six—prevents this coagulation, and if other hygienic conditions arc right, the dan ger of cholera infantum is very much dimin ished.—Youth's Companion. | I ! .
