RISKED DEATH FOR FRIENDS.
SunbonneU and Apron. ' Sunbonnets, to keep off sunburn, and, Incidentally, to look very pretty in, are proving mighty popular. Dimities, properly stiffened by being made up over stout muslin, are fas cinating when their pink rosebuds match the pink gown they're worn with, or give an unexpected dash of color to an all-white gown which is mighty picturesque. Chambray, ging ham the whole list of summer stuffs might be gone over without finding a material which, In delicate colors, wouldn't be suitatble. And aprons artists have worked revolutions In them, until they're no longer badge of servitude, or of the opposite extreme, the fancy-work gtrl, but are donned for gardening and for all sorts of work. Soft greens and blues the "ar tistic" shades are chosen and made up In straight widths gathered on bands which are decorated, or with straps which button down, tab-fashion, on tie front and back bands. Pretty for Summir Frocks. A pretty notion is an arrangement of pompadour ribbon on a net gown. Say the gown Is rose pink net, and we have two bands of ribbon, white with roses on It, in place or tucks around the skirt Then a broad scarf of It starts under one arm and hooks across to the opposite underarm seam in an empire style effect. There are two pointed Directolre revers of the ribbon, and short puffed elbow sleeves, and all the rest is lace and net. A lovely arrangement for sum mer frocks, and so dellctously dainty. 8tunnlng Shirred Effect One of the most modish of the new waists is Bhown here, and It will win the admiration of beauty-loving wom en everywhere because of Its possibili ties. For the slender woman the shirred bolero effect will supply full- ness to the bust, and the puff sleeves breadth to narrow shoulders. A soft veiling In lavender or yellow, with ecru lace and crushed girdle of a dark hued chiffon velvet or taffeta will de velop this model most becomingly. A Good Hamburg Steak. A Hamburg steak Is scornfully re fused by many because It Is badly prepared. In the first place. It is al ways most satisfactory to buy a fresh ly cut slice from the round and put it through the home food chopper; the chopper in the store is not as fre quently or as thoroughly cleansed as it should be, and often gives a taint to the meat which Is irremedlal, says the Brooklyn Times. For each pound add after chopping one tablespoouful of onion juice, a half teaspoonful of pepper. Work thoroughly with the bands, then mould Into an oval steak fully an inch and a half thick. Ar range in a greased broiler and place over a rather moderate fire. Turn every half-minute and cook from eight to ten minutes. It should be slightly rare, tender, Juicy and well flavored. When dished pour the sauce round It. Shallow Yokes. Shallow yokes of Valenciennes in sertion running round, and each row fulled slightly to the one above in order to give the flare for the shoul ders, are the most common of the pret ty yokes, and, made by hand, are as attractive as many more elaborate de signs. Sometimes the Insertion rows are joined by open stitch Instead of being sewed edge to edge, and a vari ation upon this simple yoke is ob tained by using the narrow Valenci ennes edging in place of the Insertion, the scalloped edge of one row being sewed down upon the straight edge of the row below. Lace edge is also used as insertion Id other parts of lingerie Mouses and frocks, being sewed upon the goods with the scallop edge upward. The material is then cut from underneath and finished just as In the case of the ordinary insertion. Tiny bias bands of finest lawn are Introduced into many of the lingerie yokes to outline a design filled In with open stitchery and Valenciennes or embroidery. Pastel Tinted Waists. Pastel tinted shirtwaists are ap proved by Dame Fashion for wear with coat suits, but not with white linen or serge skirts. Apropos of white serge, this material has been restored to the greatest favor. The chic sum mer girl will have at least one serge costume with Bhort skirt and coat elab orately braided. But to return to the shirtwaist, the one dominant idea Is that It shall be transparent, whether destined for wear in the morning or for an afternoon walk. A good rule for the home fashioner of the blouse to follow ia that all widths are cut the exact length of the figure for front, back and arms. There Is no extra ma terial allowed for a droop on the sleeves at the elbow, which style is now decidedly de mode. The sleeves are full, bat do not bag, and the mate rial is cut the length of the arm. The pin tuoka, run daintily by band, do not supply much fullness at the waist, but fullness at this point Is very un desirable this season. The high girdles closely wrap the figure, and this effect cannot be accomplished when there Is a lot of bungly material to be pushed under the top. Ji)oudoir 3" nSidences Puffs are featured. Skirts flare broadly. Girdles point deeply. Many buckles figure. Rose quillings remain. Sleeves are quite small. Parasol decorations are fiat. PrlncesB effects will not down. All hats turn up at some point, leghorn hats have reappeared. Flounced boleros reach the hips. A draped bodic-e is gauged down the front. There are mousquetuire lingerie un dersleeves. Little hats and high coiffures mean high collars. Jaunty coat-tails are added to all sorts of blouses. A very charming hat is faced with crush blush roses. All-Embroidery Gowns. The all-embroidery gown Is made of alternating stripes of India lawn and embroidery Anglaise, or of simple ma chine made embroidery in good de signs. It Is made shirtwaist fashion, buttoned up the back with many small lace buttons, and Is finished at the bottom with ruffles of the white. The frock Is worn over a pale blue slip and is finished with girdle of blue loulsine, the chemisette and collar are fashioned of fine "laid over" plaits of the white Persian lawn, and the hat and parasol are of corresponding era broidery laid over blue. A full ruche of blue ribbon finishes the hat, and ties of the ribbon are fastened in with rosettes near the back, and can be either utilized or allowed to hang in sash ends. Of Sheep Silken Stuff. The shee" silken stuffs are lovelier than ever and as popular. A pretty gown Is made from one of the new silks, which is exceedingly soft, with a luster and yet seems hardly like taffeta or messallne. Its ground is shot In almond green and white, with the most delicate of little white vines running over its surface. A small square yoke of tucked white mousse line Is bordered with a band of nar row lace Insertion and three ruffles of lace. The fullnes of the draped bodice Is caught on either side by a strap of silk on which are fastened three small buttons. Similar treatment Is given the short puffed sleeve, which Is edged with a double ruffle of lace. The hat is white chip trimmed with white ca melias and green foliage. Pale Blue Peau de Cygne, A pale blue peau de cygne has the skirt laid In three wide tucks just above the hem. The skirt is full, but fits closely about the hips. The bod Ice is rounded out In the neck and a gulmpe of fine lace with high stock Inset. The sleeves consist of a large puff of silk reaching to the elbow and finished with lace ruffles. The under sleeves are of lace and fit the arms closely, ending In tiny frills of lace which fall over the hands. If palms are sponged occasionally with equal parts of milk and luke warm water they will retain a healthy gloss. The white substance that accumu lates In the tops of fruit jars can be removed by boiling the tops in strong soda water. Once a week every pipe and drain In the house should be flushed with copperas solution to remove all odors and sediment. Frock of white mull with embroid ered accessories. A man suggests that a little lard or vaseline be applied on a door or win dow to the part which rubs and pre vents opening. An old tin teakettle with the bottom cut out makes an excellent cover to place over Irons heating on gas or gas oline stoves. A little leaf mold around the surface of the ground about the roots of hardy ferns will Improve the color If they appear Bickly. Until the plumber can come, a leak can be temporarily stopped with a mixture of yellow soap, whiting and a very little water. "Antique" Is New Style. Among the old weaves that have el bowed new fabrics out of the ranks is moire antique, a venerable textile of ancient and honorable lineage. It comes, of course, with the soft, supple body demanded by the fashions. It compares excellently with the jeweled and other elaborate trimmings of the hour. Pale tinted and shot effects are Its popular forms. Meant far Cooler Days. A simple dress Is of white mohair, with that very effective white Rus sian braid as trimming around the bolero and on the cuffs, as well as twice around the skirt, worn over a blouse of lawn and Valenciennes lace, and topped off by a smart, close hat of white horsehair, with a long black aigrette at one side, leaning toward the back, and a deep bandeau of white gardenias. All tills sounds elaborate, but in reality is easily carried out, and is a perfect gown to have on hand for cool summer days, when one wants a rather more substantial dress. Frock for a Little Girl. Child's frock of gobelin blue voile. The blouse is trimmed around the neck and in front with white embroid ery or lace, and Is laced with white ribbon and enamel buttons over a plastron of white batiste, trimmed with Valenciennes lace insertion. A pretty knot of ribbon ornaments the front, and the belt is of the same rib bon. The puffed sleeves are of white ba tiste, trimmed with the Valenciennes insertion and finished at the elbows with ruffles of the tame. The full skirt is finished at the bot tom with a band of lace or embroid ery. Irich Crochet Lace. As the season deepens the demand for lace, and handsome lace at that, Increases. One sees fewer of the fine varieties but a great many of the coarser laces. Indeed the heavy lace has come Into its own as never before and the Irish crochet lace beads the whole list In popularity. It Is the lace of laces for wear this summer and fall. All the coarse laces are liked and are used for trimming laces and for whole suits, as nearly as possible, because bo very much more effective than the fine laces. Spanish Fruit Pudding. Line a baking dish with a light puff paste, add a layer of shredded pineap ple, and cover It with powdered sugar; add a layer of sweet oranges, sliced; pie, and cover It with powdered sugar; next add a layer of sliced bananas with sugar strewn over them. Repeat the process until the dish Is full. Cov er the dish with a light puff paste and bake It to (i delicate brown. Rose-colored taffeta gown embroid ered In black and trimmed with nar row plaited ruffles. Herolo Work Dona by Scotch Miners Makes Good Reading. The heroic conduct of twenty-five men who descended a burning mine 76 Lanarkshire, Scotland, the other day resulted In six colliers being Baved from a terrible death. A pit In the Clyde colliery, at Hamilton, was dis covered to be on fire at 6 p. m. Only fifteen miners were at work at the time, and eight of these, who made a dash for safety, succeeded in reaching the nurface. Twenty-five volunteers, headed by the manager and overman, descended the burning pit, from which smoke was issuing in great volumes, and penetrated into the furthest re cesses of the workings, where the seven men were Imprisoned. Although it was thought that there was little chance of saving them, the rescue par ty worked heroically for hours. At about ten o'clock, after they had been below for some three hours, It was an nounced that the rescuers had suc ceeded In diverting the smoke through another air course, and that it was Just possible they might reach the imprisoned men. About two hours afterwards the entombed colliers were discovered in a distant part of the mine. They had lost their way. One lad had been suffocated by the smoke, but the other Bix were safe. A great crowd of relatives and friends stood at the mouth of the pit for hours waiting for news, and a loud cheer went up when the survivors were brought to the surface. CANNON LOST BY GENERAL. Tacoma and Seattle Plan to Preserve Interesting Relics. An old cannon and army wagon, lost In 184S, says a Tacoma dispatch In the St. Ixwis Globe-Democrat, by Gen. George B. McClellan, have been found by miners in a deep ravine at the foot of Bald mountain, between Buckley and the Glacier Basin mining district, on the north side of Mount Tacoma. In the year named Gen. McClellan, with a force of about 1,000 men, start ed from Fort Stellacoom across the Natchez pass, in the Cascades, to sub due the Natchez Indians. Their prog ress was Impeded by heavy timber, high mountains and deep swales. It required six months to cut the trail through the timber and bridge the swales with cedar puncheons, cut as they progressed. Corduroy roads thus laid by McClellan fifty-seven years ago are still In a good state of preserva tion. They are used to-day In reach ing the Glacier basin and Gold Hill mining camps from Buckley. The state and Pierce county have appro priated $20,0(i0 for building the state road to these districts, utilizing Mc Clellan's road for a large part of the distance. In going around Bald moun tain, a cannon and army wagon were lost. It is expected that Tacoma and Seattle will eventually raise and pre serve these Interesting antebellum relics. Valued His Bride Highly. "A minister often has a hard time convincing a young man whom he has Just married that there Is no regular price for the ceremony and yet leaving such an impression that he will be sure to get a liberal donation," said the Rev. C. P. Smith, pastor of the North Side Christian church In Kan sas City, Kan., "and we often have some amusing experiences In connec tion with the matter. "I remember one Instance about ten years ago when I was preaching at Walla Walla, Wash. There was no negro preacher In town, and I was often called upon to perform a cere mony between negroes. One after noon, after I had married a young ne gro couple, the groom asked me what was the price for the service. " 'Oh, well, said I, 'you can pay me whatever you think It Is worth firyou.' "The negro turned and silently look ed his bride over from head to foot, then slowly rolling up the whites of his eyes to me, said: " 'Lawd, sah, you has done ruined me for life.'

If It Is possible to obtain the docu ment by purchase the United States navy department will get the commis sion of John Paul Jones as a captain In the navy. This document is now In the possession of a prominent woman of Philadelphia. It Is said to bear every appearance of being genuine. It came into the present owner's posses sion from her mother, who got It from her father, Commodore Guert Ganse voort, U. S. N., who had Inherited It from his father. Gen. Peter Ganse voort, of revolutionary fame. Tne commission reads: "John Paul Jones Is appointed to be captain In the navy. By order of congress. John Hancock, president. Phlledalphla, Oct. 10, 1779. Attest, Charles Thomson." Scholastic Record. Mr. John Smith, schoolmaster, Coyl-ton-by-Ayr. Scotland, has just celebrat ed his jubilee as a teacher. His pred ecessor had been schoolmaster of Coylton for fifty-two years. His name was John McClymont. Mr. McCly mont's predecessor was Hector Walker, for fifty -four years schoolmas ter of Coylton: so three men have oc cupied the position for 156 years. Hands. Blmt. for with hands.

After the great Prince Eugene had defeated the Turks In the famous bat tle of Zenta he entered Vienna, only to find that Jealous enemies had con spired to defeat Mm. They went to the emperor and accused him of hav ing deliberately Ignored all the em peror's orders, and when he reached the gates of the city he was met by officers who demanded his sword and informed him that he was under ar rest "Here Is my sword," said he, "be cause my emperor demands It. It Is still red with the blood of his en emies. I do not wish to have it again If I cannot use it in his Bervlce." The citizens were furious when they heard of his reception, and they sent deputations to him offering to guard him from his enemies with arms. The prince refused all these offers. "I wish no protection," Bald he, "ex cept the protection of my reputation and my record." When the emperor heard this he an nounced that he would listen to no further complaints against the prince, and authorized him to do whatever he thought best after that on the field of battle without being responsible for bis actions to anyone. The 8easaw Candle. We need nothing but a candle, two pins, - two goblets and two saucers, which we promise not to Injure. Heat the pins and press their heads into the middle of the candle, opposite each other or. If you choose, run a hatpin or knitting needle all the way through. The Idea Is to get an axle on which the candle may balance and seesaw. Place the ends of the axle on the ruins of the goblets and light the candle at both ends. If the candle does not balance when you put it on the glasses trim one end down or move the pins until It balances exact ly. As the candle is horizontal, the wax or tallow or stearine will drop off as it melts. To catch it you put the saucers under the ends of the candle. Now, the first splash in the saucer must come from one end, as It cannot very well come from both. Therefore, that end, having lost some of Its ma terial, Is lighter than the other. The balance Is destroyed, and the other end dips down. The next Instant there is a larger splash from this low- Seesaw Candle. er end, and up it goes, and so on. The seesawing is gentle at first, but It increases until it becomes truly terrific, so that the candle stands straight up and down at the end of each swing. And it continues until the candle Is entirely used up; say, for half an hour. It Is a funny thing to see, and you can make It still more amusing to the little ones by cutting a strip of card board to represent a real seesaw, put ting cardboard figures at Its ends and attaching It to the axle far enough behind the candle to avoid danger of fire. Curious Mexican Custom. If you were a child of sunny Mex ico, and your brother or sister fell ill with smallpox or any other contagious disease, what do you suppose they would do with you? No less foolish thing than to put you and ail the oth er children of the family to bed with the one having the disease. The Idea Is that they may all catch the disease at once, and be treated for It In Its earliest stage, not to mention that the cost for medicine is less than If the children were affected at different times. A Scent Party. Here Is the way to give a "scent party": Blindfold each guest In turn (one at a t'u.e, of course), and seat him or her in the center of the room, where all tie ether guests may keep the "trial" in view. Then, bring in a basket of such articles as are here named: A bottle of turpentine, a bottle of cam phor, one of peppermint, a moth ball, a rose, a bit of salt codfish, a leaf of rosemary, an onion, etc. Altogether the odors and perfumes of these articles are familiar to ail when scented singly, and with the eyes open It is astonishing, and laughable, too, to hear the blunders of the blindfolded one as he endeavors to name the articles that are passed In tapld succession before his nose. He will declare turpentine Is camphor, peppermint a rose, a moth ball will be a geranium, and so on, till his futile attempts create the greatest merri ment to the observers. But when the test comes to those who laughed loud est, their confusion Is perhaps greater than his as they "grope blindly" with olfactory nerves to namt things they know so well but smell so badly! During such a test one will learn how much the nose depends upon the eyes to tell one things. Spilling Salt Is Unlucky. The original sunerBtltion of salt dates from the overturned salt cellar. which Is found In the painting called "La Salnle-Senc." In front of the figure of Judas Iscariot, who wears the leather bae In which he carries the .in pieces of silver received for be traying Christ, is the overturned salt celiar. But why did the artist, Da Vinci, put the spilled salt before Ju das? Because the ancients always at tached to salt an Idea of ruin and Hon. When they burned down a town they sprinkled salt over It to show that It was never to be rebuilt. no vinci in his ulcture. wished to demonstrate that 111 gotten gains nev er could be profitable. The Obedient Coin. Take a match box and remove the drawer. Hold the box In a horizontal position and place a small coin upon the middle of the top. In order to Starting tha Coin, make the coin go Inside without touching It give it several light strokes on the side which you wish It to enter. As soon as It reaches the edge tip the box lightly, raising the end where the coin is until it U balanced upon the ed?e. Another gentle stroke of your finger an.l It will drop Inside. Playing Scout Boys and girls may have great sport playing scout. The only thing neces sary is a patch of woods. And of the "counting out" plans may be used to Bee who will be Indians and who will he scout. Those who are counted out are Indians and the last one left is the scout When everything Is ready the scout hides his eyes to count 200, while the Indians scamper off through the woods and hide. It must be agreed, of course, that no one shall go beyond certain limits. The scout may set out on his search with a shout and a msh, or be may steal along nolslessly, hoping to sur prise the Indians. To be "caught" an Indian has only to be seen. The scout calls his name and the Indian must come In as a prisoner. However, a prisoner may do all he can to throw the scout off the trail. When all the Indians have been spied the one who was caught first must be scout, and he bides his eyes and counts while the others run away again as Indians. Each game starts at the spot where the last Indian is cap tured. A whole half day may be de lightfully spent in the woods at this game. Caed Trick. The "turned ca'ds" Is a trick done with the picture cards of the pack. As a rule, it can only be worked with the cheaper kinds of cards. In these packs, owing to defective printing, there Is a larger white margin at the top than at the bottom. Lay the "hon ors" out in rows, with the big margin at the top. Care must be taken that they are all laid one way. You now say that you will leave the room and that on returning you will tell which cards have been turned In your ab sence. As there is nothing to Indicate tbe top or bottom of a king, queen or jack, this will seem Impossible. A glance at the margins, however, will show you at once which cards have been turned. A Curious Old Custom. In many rural parts of England, old customs hold full sway. Recently, at a fair in a small village, one of these ancient customs was repeated. The town crier, arrayed in a three cornered hat, blue coat, trousers and gay waistcoat, took his place by the market house, and bravely shouted the following announcement: "Oyez! oyez! oyez! The fair's begun. The glove is up. No man can be arrested until the glove Is down." Now this custom dates back to the time of Henry 111. The "glove" is a big gilt model of a glove on top of a tall pole, and for days it shields the criminal from jus tice, and makes light the hearts of wrongdoers. Trick With Dominoes. Can you make one domino support 27? The plsture shows how it may be done. A Politician. Are you, my boy, who happens to read this, a leader among your play mates? Are you fearless? Do you take pride in standing well and hav ing a good name? Do the boys trust you? Would they be ashamed to do a mean trick In your presence? Then It may be you are cut out for a politician. But, mind you, I mean a politician of the right sort one that cannot be bought nor sold, one that tricksters and grafters will fear, one who will give his best service freely and will ingly to the nation or the state or the town, and who thinks more of the In terest of the public than he does of his own. If you hope to be honored and respected and useful, here Is a sure way to It. Dishonesty, bluff and graft may win for a time, but the square deal wins In the end. Now, If any boy has decided that he wants to he that kind of a poli tician, or. rather, that he dares to be one of that kind, for it Is going to take real courage, here Is what he should do: Read all the history possible. It li fully as Interesting and ten thousand times more useful than trashy novels. Find out a great deal about civil gov ernment the whole business of the city, state and nation. See who th leaders are and make up your mind whether or not they are the right kind of men if they are fearless and truthful. Read the politics In the newspapers, attend public meetings, see how elections are managed even though you cannot vote. Get up de bating clubs, and strive to win every debate you take part In. Talk when you have a chance with any man who is respectable. Of course you will wlBh to get all the education you can, both from tha public schools and the colleges. Many men have become politicians whose education was limited, but the unedu cated politician will often find himself sadly hampered. So laern all you can, especially about history, civil government and conditions of people everywhere. Meantime chose a pro fession or a business of some kind. Be a lawyer or a teacher or a news paper man. But, above all, keep a clean record. Be punctual and prompt In every engagement, and always keep your word. Then when tbe time comes that a genuine man Is wanted, one whom the people can trust, you will be eagerly sought. Boston Globe. A Musical Glass. This pretty experiment should be made with a thin qut glass goblet, and it would be all the better If the glass should have a high note when you tap It with your finger nail. Cut out of stiff writing paper a cross with arms of equal length, and, laying it on the top of the glass, turn down each end of the four arms so that the cross will not slip off. Having thus fitted the cross, take it off the glass and pour water Into the latter until it Is nearly full. Now wipe the rim carefully, so that not a particle of moisture remains on It, and replace the cross. You can make the glass vibrate and give forth a Bound by rubbing jour dampened finger over some part ct tbe exterior. That is why we have As the Glass Should Look, called it the "musical glass," but an even more wonderful experiment may be made with It. Suppose, for Instance, you rub your dampened finger on the glass Just un der one of the arms of the cross; the cross will not move. But rub it be tween any two of the arms and the cross will begin to turn slowly, as if by magic, and will not stop turning until one of tbe arms reaches a point immediately over the place you are rubbing. You tan thus move your finger around the glass and make the cross move as you plse. Mu,,t,i wirne. You will enjoy this game: Blindfold half of the players, seat them In a circle and have a vacant place at the right hand of each one. The remaining players gather in the middle of the room, and remain perfectly still while someone plays very familiar air on the piano. Then they creep cautiously to the vacant chairs. Sitting down, they begin to sing, disguising their voices as much as possible. The blindfolded players must try to recognize their respective neighbors by their voices. The minute the pi ano stops the singers cease to sing. Then the leader of the game calls out, "All the blind people will now please name their right-hand neigh bors." All who succeed may play on the other side, and new blind players must be chosen in their places. A Dog Impostor. Mr. George R. Sims tells in the Ref eree a story of a dog Impostor. The animal Is a terrier, and one night was found on a doorstep In Rother hlthe. He wag taken In, fed, and gl en a night's lodging, and all the time he hopped about on three legs. He was lame In the morning, and had good breakfast, continuing lame tl" someone opened the front door. Then he put his lame foot down and ra" off at top speed, entirely cured of hi lameness. But that evening the same dog was observed lying on a doorstep in another part of Rotherhithe. When the door was opened he held up on leg and limped in on the other three. The occupants of that house had pet cat and didn't want a terrier. o the cripple was gently put into tn street again, and, to the surprise o everybody, he trotted off ltD0U showing a symptom of lameness.
