Here Are a Few Methods for
Encouraging Fatty
(Copyright, 1893, by Diana de Morny.)
"Ogni medaglia ha 11 suo riverso" and
the reverse of obesity is emaciation. Neither
coudition is compatible witli beauty; the
fat woman is repel Inn t becau.se all the con
tours of beauty are gone; the hollow
cheeked, angular flat chested woman can
not be really physically lovely either, but
the grossucss of obesity is certainly more to
be deplored than the cadaverous condition
of emaciation. The path which leads to
flesh is one of roses compared to the road
which the corpulent must tread, as you will
see There arc a number of causes of
emaciation; sometimes the tendency is in
herited, and if there be a chronic organic
disease, such as consumption, or ait in
herited scrofulous disease, the directions I
have to give can only avail to a certain
point; but for the ordinary, every-day too
thin woman there is a certain and Mire
cure. First of all, plenty of fresh air, for,
paradoxical as it may appear, the very rule
by which fat "women are to burn up their
superfluous adipose tissues as I explained iu
my last talk, is the method by which the
thin ones must increase their muscular
strength and put themselves iu a condition
to assimilate the food which is to produce
the fat Let all the thin women obey the
following rules rmd unless they have some
chronic ailment, I will stake my reputation
on the result.
On arising, or -while you are still In bed If
convenient, drink a glass or milk. Practice
with your dumb-bells for not more than
five minutes aud dress leisurely, don't al
low yourself to get nervous; no unc ever
gains any time by it, and nany women
have absolutely chiselled lines into Uieir
faces in the nervous contraction of the
muscles about the brow, eyes and mouth
from too violent "hustling." It is just
as important that a thin woman chord (1 wear
her clothes loose as for a fat woman tiot to
draw herself into an inadequate compass.
Have your clothes not only loose out also
light in weight, with lots of -pare space
about the chest and shoulders.
For breakfast. If you arc leieiidMiti:pon
your coffee, drink it -with as much cream
or milk and sugar as you can -.Mlhout its
being distasteful to you; if you ran do eo
without too much sacnf ice ?or I know
now most women dQpend upon 'heir morning
coffee substitute cocoa or chocolate. Make
your first meal of oatmal or any other
palatable cereal, baked potatoes -with butter
and cream, brad and butter, fruit, any
thing containing starch or sugar. You are
to avoid meats as much as possible; a bit
of juicy steak or a broiled chop will not
hurt you, but it will not bring .voj cither
fat or strength. Many very I'un people are
troubled with dyspepsia and rf course if
your food is not properly digested 'i cannot
It did .look queert
w . f1I'
jS nrr it g&&ZZtv5F&2'Sr ,VtS-'i ! .
make blcod or muscle. Dyspepsia is a fre
quent cause of emaciation.
For nervous dyspepsia with a tendency to
hysteria, which many emaciated women
Buffer from, take any one of the wcllen
dorsed liquid peptonoids according to di
rections, yourdrugglst will he ahleto supply
you, and for the indigestion which causes
red face after eatmg or blotches on the
faco, the following:
Tincture of mix vomica, five dropB In
water before each meal.
Stibgallate of bismuth, five drops after
each meal.
If your food troubles you bo that it will
not always remain In your stomach, but
produce faintness and retching, eat a little
at a lime and eat often. Try rorthisform
of dyspepsia the following:
Aromatic spirits of ammonia, one tea
spoonful In a wine glass of wuter half an
hour berore eating, three times dally.
The digestive organs may be weakened
by not giving them enough to do, quite as
effectively as by overworking them. Many
very thin people are very quick and nervous
in their movements, they are always iu
haste. Try to cultivate laziness and eat
as slowly as possible. Sugar is the most
effective of all fattenersso you may indulge
your liking for sweets If It exists mid if not
you must try to form a taste for food con
taining sugar.
Alter your breakfast get ready for a nice
long walk; if it is a possible thing let
your companion be a bright and cheerful
creature, or a merry little child, for low
spirits arc thieves lying in weight to ruin
your digestion, to caive lines and wrinkles
in your face, and to uptet my best en
deavors to make you plump and pretty.
Try to recollect that the old saw, "Laugh
and grow fat," was, like the other prov
erbs, founded on a tiuism. It is trite but
none the less a fact that laughter will aid
digestion and assimilation of food and In
duce thr sort of fatigue we are striving
for, which is followed by a delicious hour
or more of tissue-repairing indolence.
"With your clothing loose, your feet shod
in comfortable, tlat-hecled shoes, you
start forth on your promenade, which may
.properly be called a constitutional. Throw
your shoulders back, close your mouth, and
take as long and deep breaths as possible.
Keep your head up, your chin well for
ward, and if you walk whore it will not
attract too much attention do bo with your
hands clasped behind your back. 1 Miould
like you, for your personal satisfaction,
to get weighed and have your chest meas
ured before entering upon the fat-producing
regimen. It will be most interest
ing to you to watch your progress by the
infallible tests of weight and measure
ments. Bo not walk until you are tired
and nervous and irritable. An hour to
commence with is quite sufficient. Now,
if you are a woman of leisure, take a warm
bath on your return, and after it anoint
the entire body with the following skin
Melt together over a warm bath.
White wax 2 drachms
Spermaceti 2drachms
Lanoline 2 ounces
Oil of sweet almond 4 ounces
Balsam of Mecca 3 drachms
Oil of rose (otto) 10 drops
This skin food will nourish impover
ished cuticle. Rub it in eo jou are iot left
iu a greasy coi.dition; darken jour room
aud lie down for a rest of an hour or more;
sleep If jou can, but in any caso rest. If
you are hungry take a glass of nnlk or a
bottle of Ki,niyss, which may be obtained
at the apothecary's. Of courgo where one
has a family one cannot give up the morn
ing hours to a Ira Hi and nap. Substitute the
same directions for tLo late aiternoon or
delay the bath and ai o.ntiug ui.til just be
fore retiring but in this cnto try nrd get
an undisturbed hour or two durirg the day
for absolute rest away from uoho aiid tree
from interruption. Many very lean women
are inclined to melancholia. With joich a
tendency jou l:tu!dmake tLt strongest
effort to cultivate cl rorlulucfs. You -will
never get rourd and pretty wh.Ieycu allow
yourself to be low-1-!) riled. 1 1 co'e bright,
joj-ous compan ons ar.d avoid every morbid
association, not onlj- with people, but books
and plaj-s even muse if too -icd ie un
healthful for ycu. Let ourat, jolly s'ners
steady themselves a 1 ttle 1 j- crntact wih
the sadder s'cle of li'e Five minutes' exer
cise with dumb l.ellsl cfore luncheon. For
luncheon ye.u may fellow your own fancy,
only abstaining ficm tia or coffee and sub
stituting milk, or a imreinl water, if jou
prefer, ar.d chrosing such vegetable? as
peas, beans, i otatces.egg plant, green corn,
in preference to cucumbers, rnlad, luriiips,
cauliflower, etc. All 'ar'racctusiccds are
good for you if j-ou find t lit in palatable: eat
freely of oatmeal .wheat foods, rice.homf ny,
corn meal, and fnntswith cream and sugar.
In the afternoon you should take some
tontr - '
exercise horseback riding, tennis, rowing,
bicycling, or more walking, and an hour of
rest again If possible. Recollect you are
cultivating Idleness, you are to make a duty
of being lazy. If j-ou are in the habit (if
doing fine needle work I wish you would
ceabe Tor a time. 1 find thu art embroidery
craze accountable formally crow's-feet and
for a nervous condition which is incompati
ble with a woman's beauty. Thin women
are usually very busy aud active, and to be
positively idle is a real pain to them but
content yourself for the present with some
coarser work and those of j'ou who are so
happy to live away from tho wear and tear
of city life can surely do a bit of gardening
at this beautiful season of the year in place
of "fancy work." It often happens that
very thin women are really half starved;
they have no appotlte and in consequence
no strength, no ambition, no courage, noth
ing but frayed out nerves and a threadbare
temper. If j-ou have a dislike for food you
Snust take a good tonic. Try one of the
best maltextracts or thefollowing excellent
appetizer, which can easily be made at
Gentian root, 2 ounces; bitter oranges,
sliced, 1 ounce; Virginia snake root, 1-2
ounce. Bruise, and infuse for four daj3 in
1 pint of brandy; then add 1 pint of water.
A wine glassful to be taken occasional'.
This Is also excellent for flatule'ncj'.
Lessons in elocution or singing will be of
great benefit to the narrow-chested woman,
and where tho emaciation is progressive
and there is a-cough, with a bright fluh in
the afternoon, send immediately for one of
the numerous emulsions of cod liver oil and
tnke it according to directions. I have ar
rested many cases of emaciation with a
tendency to consumption by a good emul
sion of cod liver oil and proper voice cul
ture. For dinner you may eat oysters or
clams, soups, fish, rare meats, vegetables,
except those proscribed, sauces, entrees,
sweets, and fruits. You may drink beer,
porter, stout, Burgundy, or a little sweet
champagne alwaj-s In moderation and
unless you have been In the habit of taking
something of the kind at dinner, I do not
ndvise stimulants, as they frequently inter
fere with the digestive processes and often
are the cause of truly hideous skin diseases.
Moreover, it Is fnr more charming to see
our women total abstainers, to say nothing
of the moral side of the question. Avoid all
trying work or reading by artificial light.
Before retiring j-ou will, of course, take
your warm hitli and scrub as directed in
the first Beauty Talk without reference
to the bath here advised in the morning.
Sleep all you can. Arrange your life so
that you will gvet JJie most rest for your
body nndmind possible. Cultivatccalmneas
and placidity and determine to disprove the
old English axionV that "a sweet temper
mid a bony woman never dwell under the
same roof."
Crysrnljizlni: Fruits.
Few confections' arc mure delicious than
candied fruits, and.tco, few sweetmeats
are more expensive. sixty cents a pound
being the regulation, price, and a pound
represents a very small amount. They
can be prepared at about half thecost, how
ever, at home, if rW is taken.
Cherries, currantsnlne apples, apricots,
pears and peaches are best experimented
upon. The twc former can be used iu
bunches; the pineapple is sliced across the
fruit, eacli piecq bqing a gcod quarter
Inch thick; apricots are cut on one side
and the stoue slipped out. while pears aud
peaches are halved, and, of course, peeled
Make a good thick syrup, pound for
pound, adding for each pound a small cup
of water Boll tfco sugar first, then drop
in the fruit, and when they have boiled
cIlmt take out anJ drain from the syrup
If the cherries are stoned (the red ox
hearts make the finest, being not so sweet
as the white aud without the rank tart
ness of the sour red ones), it is nice to
string them ou a biomn splint as they can
be more cleverly handled
Sprinkle liberally with powdered sugar,
lay on a sieve, aud set the fruit in a warm
oven. I used a wiie dish, such as our
grandmothers kept fruit in, set within an
other dish to catch the synip. In two
hours turn the fruit, spriukle with sugar
again. Keep this up unul the sugar has
all dripped out On no account have tin
oven hot, as it will dry Uie fruit ant
leave it like so much leather. And, of
course, the fruit must be laid in siuglt
rows when drj-ing.
When the juice has evaporated and
the sugar has formed a glazed surface,
put a way In buxeojn a diy place. Waxed
paper should be laid between each layer.
A bureau drawer is as good a place as
any to keep them. KENNET WOOD.

A Chnrmlnff Conceit for a Pretty Bed
Tho finishing touch nowadays to tho
room which Is devoted to one's guests, is
the verstf Intended to invito or inspire
sweet repose.
Tho couplet is etched, embroidered or
painted, preferably tho latter, In blue, Bil
vcr or gold, upon a satin ribbon about four
Inches wide aud long enough to take the
Gold lettering on a whlto ribbon ie tho
style of this little conceit which I have in
mind, and which hangs over the head of a
Louis XV bed, which is resplendent In em
broidered linen sheets and a covor of gui
puru spread over rose. That It Btands In
a .room belonging to a very smart lady , in
deed, is a matter, perhaps, of little im
portance. The lines, which are worth copy
ing, read as follows, verbatim ct literatim:
Sleep, sweet, within this quiet room,
O thou , whoe'er thou art,
Aud let no mournful yesterdays
Disturb thy quiet heart
Nor let to-morrow scare thy rest
With dreams of coming ill;
Thy Maker Is thy changeless friend,
His love surrounds thee still.
Forget thyeclf and all tho world;
Putouteach feverish light;
The stars are watchlnjr overhead.
Sleep, sweet. Goodnight! Goodnight!
Tho lines are very pretty and most ap
propriate, one Is bound to acknowledge.
As a matter of fact, they were written by
a slater of Mr. C. P. Huntington, Mrs.
Gates, whose verses, "Your Mission," were
very popular at one time.
Possibly one may have- a happy knack at
rhyming and be able to icdlte lines that
pleafe ono better, or, failing In this, there
is the "Book on Quotations," which may
furnish forth verses grave, gay, or sooth
ing, as thu case may bo. The mistress of
n largo mansion, where bedrooms are num
bered by tho hulfscore.may find occupation
for many an idle hour in preparing these
little banners we will call them, until
some one has invented a better name.
The "t.me-card" Is another necessity in
every well appointed gue6t chamlior. This,
too, may be prepared in a Wmilar way to
tho banner already described. Upon a
delicate shade of ribbon, with gold paintor
India Ink, make tho three words at the left
sldoin odd, stragglingleaters, "Breakfast,"
"Luncheon," "Dinner," one under the
other, leaving a lino opposite each on which
you afterward add the t.mo of each meal.
In a country house it is well to add "Mails
Receivod," "Mails Sent." ,
Any little ornamentation in the way of a
spray of flowers, a cupid, or a flight of
birds is easily added with bniFh or needle.
The time-card can bo suspended from the
wall by a little brass rod and chain, or
simply by a brass ring, skillfully concealed
by a bow of ribbon.
The artistic housewife, will, of course,
have due regard to the color motif of her
room, and make all extra touches in the
way of time-cards and banners correspond.

Tho birthday reception given at 8 o'clock
last evening at No. 732 Twenty-first street
f or thebenef it of S t. Michaolsand All Angels
was a most enjoj-uble entertainment to all
present. The attendance was good not
withstanding the bad weather and the
heartiness with which all entered into the
spirit of the occasion was all the more
marked on that account.
The house was decorated witli flowers
of every description whllea mosthospitable
appearanco was effected by having large
open fires brightly burning in each room.
Each person on entering deposited with
tho doorkeeperthe small silk bagprevlously
sent them for this purpose and in which the
exact number of pennies corresponding
to their respective ages had been deposited.
This plan was what gave the name of birth
day reception to the entertainment.
Tho success of the evening, aud in fact
tho entire entertainment, was due to the
untiring work In this respect accomplished
by Miss Kathcrine Lowndes and the Misses
Murray and Edith Thomas. The Ice cream
tablo was in charge of Mrs. Nesbit. as
sisted by Miss Roy. Miss Evans and Miss
Capcrton had charge of the cake table,
and Mrs. Evans presided at the straw
berry table. These ladles had a general
supervision of the flower booth.
During tho evening a most elaborate
and enjoyable musical programme under
the direction of Mr. Reed was rendered.
Among those who took part were Mr. Hub
bard T. Smith, who sang a number of
times; Mr. Keeling, who, with Mr. Thomp
son and Miss Addie Klemschmldt, were
tho other vocalists of the evening. Miss
Dc Shields' instrumental music was greatly
enjoyed, as was that of Mr. Reed.
Mrs. Graham Bell is at present iu Paris,
where she has placed her daughter at school

Ella Mahan, who were married here last
night, decided to cheat the guests of the
fun of throwing rice and old shoes at them.
After the wedding supper the young couple
retired to prepare for their journey. The
guests stood at the front of the house
with handfuls of nee and a numerous as
sortment of shoes, and were surprised soon
to see the carriage driving out of the yard
with the j-oung couple in it, and too far
away to lie reached by the bombardment.
After donning her traveling costume the
bride went to her bedroom window at the
i rear of the house and gave a signal,
j Slowly a long ladder was raised, and the
i bridegroom's head appeared. He took
her handbag and dropped It into the hands
of the coachman. Then the bride squeezed
herself through the window, and, steadied
by her husband, descended safely. They
got in a carriage and drove out by a side
entrance to the grounds.

Pillsbury'sBest is the Best
Death from Electricity.
Here are some odd opinions concerning
the force of the electric current, given by
Dr. C. F. Chandler, before the Columbian
School of Mines: "A very interesting mis
apprehension, which exists in the lalcda
or many people Is one concerning the Mtal
dangers which lurk In the pressure of , say.
1,1)00 volts. The newspapers often tell
of a man who has been killed from such a
pressure, whereas, in fact, such a pressure
alone could not kill a bumming turd. I have
frequently caught In my hand -parks pos
sessing an electro motive power of 100,000
volts without feeling anything more than a
very slight barn. The danger arises only
when the volts are re-enforced ny a good
many ampheres or currents. In duuh a case
the force ot the current suddenly lecomposea
all the fluids In the body. The salt in the
blood instantly turns to chlorine 'jas and
the person who has his veins '.-harged with'
such a deadly poison can not Ni t.Tpected
to live many seconds." St. Louis Re
