TURKISH CHAIR COVER.
Comfort For Bathrooms With Up to Dato Nick*! Pitting*. In the perfectly appcfeued modern bathroom an that U not nickel plate* Is white enameled, and while ail o f the sanitary retirements are thcs met. considerable of the oid fashioned comfort is left out. A. resourceful mother of tittle children, who objected to this cold -omfjrt after the bath, bo* made a pair of slip cover* for the white enameled chair. They are of absorbent Turkish tow eling In white, perfectly washable and the maker avers that each week seeee one of tbem sent to tbe laundry Tbey do not extend as far as tbe floor, bat form a liberal cover, rat to fit the back and tbe seat, over which they slip, and reaching sis inches below the edge or ?the seat The seams are left wide, so that eventually they will not poll out. and they ere bound on the wrong side with broad white tape to prevent fraying. This should appeal to the mother or nurse whose strength is taxed by stooping dally to reach the child stand ing on the bath mat. The wee one wia be so such more accessible If seated on s normally high chair: he: which one of us would think of plac Ing the dripping little thing on a cold white enameled surface'? To suggest ? rh<? most comfortable bathroom ac- , cessory is almost to picture a rush oir the Turkish toweling counter Wfclie we are speaking o: bathrooms j and bath mats. let us Insist on the ad visability of banging the fiat bath mat : to two small brass books by two brass j rings sewed permanently to Its two j corners. "Where towel space is limited the bath mat Is too often folded, insteac of being allowed to dry thoroughly Every bathroom should be liberally supplied with brass hooks, which wi" cot rust moist articles. Curtain scrlu and cotton crape are two excellent ma terials from which to make face cloths They .ire open enough In weave to dry thoroughly, besides having a nice crlspness. which acts like a very mild flesh brush to the face. TIPS ON YOUR TOES. Cultivate Pedal Beauty For s Number . o* Reason*. "To all women who wear pumps and , to those who walk much in slippers of ' the kind tbnt are apt to slip off I sar , "Exerrlse, yonr feet." Here are some of the rules, and they are good even for tbe woman who does not wear elaborate footgear." says a pedlcurlsr In the New York Sun. "When you go to bed at night take your foot In your hand and twist It ?t the ankle. Work gently, taking car" not to strait it. bnt work It back and forth to give the muscles something to do. "Stretch your leg out straight in front of yon and work your feet in such a way that your toes are bent tinder your foot. Then straighten l them out as straight ns you can bend them under again. This Is very good exercise for the Instep and also for the palm of the feet as I call It "Don't go to bed until you have dipped your feet la hot water and be sure to rub some kind of oil Into then Ton may think you are fattenlns your , feet, but really you are only making them more supple. Your foot ran stand a great deal of tiassage. "When you go :o sleep don't forge! your feet Be sure that there Is room for your toes at the foot of the bed. Otherwise you will have a pressure npon tbe tips of your toes, and this acts precisely the same as short shoes "I make a specialty, too, of big . stockings. Most women wear stock lngs too short" She Became a Suffragist at 100. The latest recruit to the rause of equal suffrage Is Mrs. Dinab E Sprague of Chicago, who recently cele brated ber one hundredth birthday. "1 ] believe women should vote." said Mrs. Sprague. "because It tneans simple Jus tice. Women are taxpayers as well as men. and taxation without representa- | , tlon Is oppression. I wish there bad : been suffragists when I was a girl, but ] a hundred years ago women were per mitted only to work bard and tber were expected to look pretty. The change to the advantage of women In my lifetime has been wonderful. As far as I am able to make out now. wo men lord it over men. They cannot have too many privileges, however, and that's why I am a suffragist It's lucky to be a girl In these modern days. She is petted and praised and really has the whole world at her feet sail. It Is only her due. Man had tbe ?upper band too long. It amuses me to see him being pushed Into second place, and his proper Instruction will begin only when all women are permitted to I vote." Mrs. Spragne's father. Dr. Pur ley Munger. was a surgeon in tbe wcr of 1312. She was born In Copenhagen. N. T_ and was married when she was thirty-six years old. or sixty-four years ago. She bas been a widow twenty years. Why Men Wear Trousers. No living man of this age deliberate^ ly chose to adopt trousers. He was forced into them and all other eccen tricities of dress by woman. In tbe very earliest sartorial experience of every man he Is swathed In a queer bundle of Incoherent bandages by a woman. Later she puts him into cute little dresses so that tbe neighbors can't tell him from his little sister. Still later she cuts off his curls and puts him into knickerbockers, and he puts on "long pants" when she gives the word and not before. That Is all that man has to do cr ever had to do with wearing trousers. Woman forced him Into them In tbe first place, and now be % is afraid to wear anything else for fear of making a sensation. DESTRUCTION ' ? ? ' THREATENED OF THE W.VJL GUARD HAS REACHED A CRITICAL POINT. 1 A dispatch from Charleston has the following concerning the rows that have recently disgraced the West Virginia National guards: Just what is to be the future of the West 'Virginia National guard is a question which is causing -Anxiety among those members of that or ganization, who have given much of their time, and in many instances have spent their money, in bringing the state militia up to a point of efficiency which has caused it to be complimented - highly by United States army men and made it the envy of some of the other states. A critical period in the guard has ar rived. Will the officers of the guard become mixed up in factional fights to the extent that Governor Glass cock will cut off the entire organiza tion or will they lay aside their petty differences and assist the governor! ia keeping it up to its present high > standard, with politics left on the | outsider ! Though the governor is not him self a military man, he wants to be friendly to the militia. While a visitor at the encampments last month, he formed a most favorable impression of the two regiments of: infantry, which constitute the guard of the state. He is familiar with the 1 fact that many of the state's best citizens are connected with the mili tia, that the company commanders are particular to get only good men into their companies. He realizes that at almost any time the occasion might arise when at least a part of, the militia would be needed and needed badly. But the governor of West Virginia has too much to look after to be con tinuously worried by the petty dif ference of a few men. No other de partment of the state government has worried the governor a fourth, jxirt as much as has the adjutant j general's office, since his inaugura tion. There was the fight for the office of adjutant general which nar- ; rowed down to two men. General Burlew and Col. Pierce. Most of the officers of the guard endorsed j Pierce, not that they had any ob- i jection to Burlew, but because Pierce was coming up from the line. Bur lew won and most of the members of the organization were willing to ac cept the will of the governor. Col. Pierce, a representative of the First regiment, and Capt. J. I- Pratt, rep resenting the Second, were placed in the office to look after the detail work. Pierce Resignation'. But the war continued until at the instance of the governor, Col. Pierce was asked to resign. Pierce has re fused and from his home in Preston county comes the report that he will fight to hold on. And here it might be said that the adjutant general's office is on the trail of some others whose conduct is alleged to have been unmilitarv. Politicians will likely take a hand and this threatens the destruction of the guard. So far as has been learned here' none of the officers will take part in the Pierce fight. And in this lies the hope of the organization. The 1 governor is not much of a steam-! roller man, but he has set out to do certain things and intends to carry 1 them out, even though the militia j becomes a matter of history in the j state. For the present the governor has succeeded in having Captain Eaton, of the United States army, detailed with the guard and has jriven him charge of the adjutant general's office. But the next month he must return to duty with the cadet corps as the univerity, unless the governor succeeds in having him de-1 tailed longer. With this end in view the governor will make a trip to Washington perhaps this week and ' if he fails the office work will be | placed in the hands of another, most 1 likely Capt. Pratt, who has therepu ! tation of being a most efficient officer. : Then if the officers of the organiza tion show willingness to get down to business and lay aside petty differ ences, the governor is the warm friend of the guard. Otherwise, ! with a stroke of the pen, the militia ' mav be changed into a memory. i Point Pleasant Liquor % House, Homer Smith, Proprietor.

LET HER STRETCH. It would be difficult for those reared among the elegancies and re finements of !ife in the city to appre ciate the gatherings and merrymak ings of the people who dwell in the; rural districts of ourcountrv,whether it be at the dance or at the hustings. There is no music so sweet to the masses of the people as the music of politics. There is nothing that kin dles the zeal of the rural prtriot to a whiter heat than the prospects of an office; there is nothing that cools it off so quickly as the fading* out of that prospect. There is no glory like political glory. I stood on the stump in Tennessee as elector for Grover Cleveland and thus I turned ,my eagle loose: ?From Maine"! ilarR plow ud crag* of ?now.

A WHOPPER. Kenova had the largest visitor this week known in the state. The bux ? om lassie weighs only eight hundred pounds. The owner of this avoirdu pois is Miss Anna Davis. She came not from the apple orchards of the Sanendoah nor the coal fields of Mc Dowell, but instead hails fn in our own dear Big Sandy where the girls grow robust and sweet. Miss Anna was accompanied by her father and was en route from her home near Prichard to Wheeling, where she will appear on the stage in one of the |mrks. This lady had a sister who was so large that when she died a coffin had to be manufactured to to receive her remains. These girls were formerly exhibited in this sec tion in a tent.?Ceredo Advance. TWO VERDICTS. The small son of a neighbor had died during the night and Sambo and Tom were discussing the calamity, in the company of other sympathizers. "De po' chile died fum eatin* too much watennillion," Sambo explain ed. One of the others looked his doubts. "Huh!" he grunted, scornfully. "Dar ain't no such thing as too much watah million." "Well, den," remarked the first, dar wasn't enough, boy." WHAT HE GOT. A good many years ago, in the State of Iowa, there was a small boy hoeing potatoes in a farm lot by the roadside. A man came along in a fine buggy and driving a fine horse. He looked over the fence, stopped and said: "Bud, what do you get for hoeing those potatoes?" "Nothin' ef I do," said the boy," and hell ef I don't. NEW JOB FOR JUSTICES.
