A dyspepsia veteran who writes from one of England's charming rural homes to tell how she won victory In her 20 years' fight, naturally exults in her triumph over the tea and coffee habit; 'T feel It a duty to tell you," she eaye, "how much good Postum has doue me. I am grateful, but also de sire to let others who may be suffering as I did, know of the delightful meth od by which I was relieved. "I had suffered for 20 years from dyspepsia, and the giddiness that usu ally accompanies that painful ailment, and which frequently prostrated me. I never drank much coffee, and cocoa and even milk did not agree with my impaired digestion, so I used tea, ex clusively, till about a year ago, when I found In a package of Grape-Nuts the little book, 'The Road to Wellvllle.' "After a careful reading of the book let I was curious to try Postum and sent for a package. I enjoyed It from the first, and at once gave up tea in lta favor. "I began to feel better very soon. My giddiness left me after the first few days' use of Postum, and my stom ach became stronger so rapidly that It was not long till I was able (as I still am) to take milk and many other ar ticles of food of which I was formerly compelled to deny myself, proved tbe truth of your statement that Postum 'makes good, red blood.'

Here are some notes taken at a showing in one of the well-known lingerie shops not far from Paquln's. The larger the better. This seems to be the rule for fashioning frills of either lace or linen. One-sided effects predominate. A central strip of lace, tucked material or embroidery Is flanked on one side by an Immense frill. Beading, eyelet embroidery, lace, heavy and fine, may be used at the line of junction, and ball fringe has made its appearance on some novelties. Pleatings of net are edged with lace motifs in heavy Oriental weaves or fine Valenciennes, pleated frill will be edged with two or three other frills of pleated lace. The possibilities of variety are unlim ited. Sometimes a Jabots or plisses are extremely wide and long. In the majority of cases Sy extend to tbe waistline and over as far as the shoulder. The shape is generally broader at the top than at the bottom. Black buttons of satin or velvet are introduced on lace. BEST COLOR FOR CURTAINS Strange That Gray, So Eminently Appropriate, Hat Not Been More Largely Made Use Of. In one of the popular plays of the day the woman who le artistic will get an Idea well worth following as to house decoration. In one of the scenes a room Is decorated with gray curtains. Why, says the artistic woman, has she not thought of gray curtains be fore? Why adhere to blue and brown, rose and white, when gray makes a frame for the outside world that Is inimitable? It softens the garish jrightnesa of an azure sky, and drapes tbe sad day with sympathetic har mony. Moreover, a gray tone with tny room Is never obtrusive, does not weary the senses, is dignified, charm ing and picturesque. It Is. In short, a perfect choice. Gray curtains made of chintz, China silk and sheeting, or sumptuous brocade and satin, are the Ideal accompaniment of tbe house the Juvenil« Hairdressing Is noticeably softer for some time back. One of the latest Ideas In children's hairdressing is the transformation of the Dutch style Into a Louis XVI p® riod. It consists of having the cropped hair curled and falling in long ring lets, completely »urroundlng the head, from ear to ear, instead of being combed down straight. The arrangement is decidedly quaint and pretty. It will be becom ing to even a greater number of chi! 3 ren than was the harsher Dutch style. For the Silver Mesh Beg.

In which the bag can be boiled for the short space of a minute, and then In where every color scheme 1 b kept In low tones.

Common 8ence It the Secret of His Success — Ths McNamara Case Has Made Him Famous the World Over. Los Angeles, Cal. Common sense the most uncommon thing in the world, is the secret by which William J. Burns, whose work in connection with the McNamara cases made his name world-wide, has risen to be crowned king of American detectives. Although he has dealt with some of the most hardened criminals In the country he has never fired a shot at a human being. Burns Is the essence of the ordi nary. A man about middle height, broad shouldered, with prominent fea tures and a pair of gray eyes that bore through you and the wall beyond, reddish brown hair, untouched by age; his mustache tinged with gray, attired probably a bit more carefully and up to date than the average busi ness man, and with a manner alert and positive, he presents not the ap pearance of a detective, but to tbe unknowing passes otf for a prosperous citizen of fastidious taste regarding dress. Burns was appointed to the govern ment secret service In 1890 and was located in the west, working In Indian territory, Texas, Arkansas and the sou^h. He was soon placed In charge of that district, and In 1894 was trans ferred to Washington, where he was promoted for good work, and got a roving commission, going wherever there was an unusually Important case. One of the biggest feats In those days was the running down of the principles In the Brockway Bradford Courtney gang of counterfeiters. When this gang was run to earth and cornered in a building In West Ho boken, N. J., they had In their posses sion more than $2,000,000 in gold cer tificates and a lot of Canadian coun terfeit notes. So accurate were the gold certificates the government had already accepted $80,000 worth of them, and in order to pick the bogus from the genuine It was necessary to summon one of the counterfeiters to Washington. Another brilliant piece of detective work by Burns was In connection with \ extensive land frauds in the west. He was more than three years on this case and when he had finished and turned the evidence over to the gov ernment It resulted In the conviction of United States Senator Mitchell of Oregon and of two wealthy land own ers, Hyde and Benson of California. From these land cases Burns went to San Francisco to dig amid the mass of political and municipal corruption in that city. Three years were neces sary for the Investigation. It resulted in sending Mayor Schmitz to the peni tentiary for five years; Ruef, the po litical boss, for fourteen years; Glass, vice-president and general manager of the Pacific State Telephone company, and several others to prison for vari ous periods. Burns, notwithstanding tbe nature of his profession, has a strong belief in the Integrity of human nature. "There never was a time," he says, "when the moral sentiment of the people was more easily and quickly aroused than at present, or when there was a finer sense of honesty in the various relations of daily life. Even bad men want good govern ment—If they are not making money out of bad government. Nor do I be lieve in the heredity of crime. Lom broso and other scientists speculate and write essays, but coming right down to common experience, which is a better test than philosophy or long tables of figures, I know that environment and not birth is the one great cause of criminal conduct." He has always held that the detec tive business was simply a matter of common sense. He Is continually tell ing bis subordinates that every crook, no matter bow clever he is, always leaves a trail behind. Intellectually, Burns Is tbe most re sourceful and brilliant detective In the United States. Nowhere else on earth, perhaps, can anyone match him In the ability to think out the snarled prob lems of mystery and crime. Sentenced 8lx Time« to Die. Wahachie.

METHOD OF KEEPING YOUNG Remarkably Sound Advice for the Woman Who Has Some Years of Life to Her Credit. The way to ward off old age Is not to fear It, not to allow one's self to be oppressed by tbe dread of advan cing years. Use only legitimate pre ventives and avoid trying experiments with preparations not indorsed by physicians. Do not wear toilettes in tended for young girls, they only add years to the appearance. Keep up your Interest In the young, but do not envy them. Retire with dignity from the struggle, do not pose daughter's rival. Above all, surround your life with sweet, true affections which prevent the heart from growing bitter. Do not lose Interest In the growing events of the day; do not fall behind the times and do not harp on other and better days. To those who ! come to you for advice be always kind and sympathetic. As you advance ln years preserve carefully your personal appearance, for once lost It may not be regained save by strenuous efTort. Your costumes should be simple and unpretentious, yot graceful. These ruleB, carefully and sensibly followed, will keep you young and attractive.— Exchange. your ALMOST FRANTIC WITH ITCHING ECZEMA "Eight years ago I got eczema all over my hands. My fingers fairly bled and It Itched until It almost drove me frantic. The eruption began with itching under the skin. It spread fast from between tlio fingers around the nails and all over the whole handB. I got a pair of rubber gloves in order to wash dishes. Then It spread all over the left side of my chest. A fine doc tor treated the trouble two weeks, but did me no good. I cried night and day. Then I decided to try Cutlcura Boap and Ointment but without much hope as I had gone so long. There was a marked change the second day, end so on until I was entirely cured.

Jones Admitted It. Jones and Brown argued as they al ways did when they had time enough. They had dined together, and as Junes lived at a distance and it was very late Brown offered to put him up for the night. On the way home they fell to dis cussing the strategy of the Civil war as indicaled by the campaigns of Lee and Grant. The topic was elastic enough to keep them going for half an hour, and reached Its height as they neared the Brown house. Then Brown lost his temper. "Jones," said he, "if you don't admit that Grant was a greater general than Lee, you can't sleep here." It was then two o'clock in the morn Ing, and Jones was eight miles from home.—Chicago Post.
