USE FOR MIRRORS.
CAN BE MADE TO SEEM TO IN CREASE SIZE OF ROOM. A Little Care Taken In the Placing of Them Will Frequently Work Wonders—Should Reflect Door or Window. To increase the apparent size of a room there is nothing better than the Judicious use of mirrors. Supposing that you have a glass about five feet high and two wide, in • wooden frame, you may employ it most decoratively in a sitting room. Mount it about a couple of feet from the floor and arrange in front of it a row of ferns, palms or other foliage plants, concealing the pots with a handsome box, filled in at the top with fresh moss. The mirror should be placed either where It will reflect the view from the window or else opposite the en trance of the room, so that when the door is opened one may see the hall, or passage beyond, reflected in it. Of course, the room will not be any larger really, but the fact that it will appear so is a great point, for, as a friend of my own says, “If we cannot have a pleasant reality at least let us have a pleasant illusion.” I know one house where the dining room is long and dark, and the only window gives a very insufficient light, says a writer in the Chicago American. Here an immense improvement was effected by placing a good mirror over the sideboard at the end of the room opposite the window. This reflected the light and the land scape seen from the window, with the result that one was almost deluded Into the belief that the room bad two windows, and one certainly was not conscious of the want of an outlet. TRIO OF MENU FEATURES. Good Dishes for a Small Luncheon or Family Meal. Boil rice In salted water until ten der; then drain and mix in while hot one teaspoonful of butter; then pour over a sirup in which pears have been boiled, a little lemon juice and preserved ginger being added. Mold up on a dish and set away to become cold. Arrange the cooked fruit about the mold and in the center of each half place a little whipped cream. A combination of cheeses makes a novel stuffing for celery. Equal parts of Roquefort, Camembert and cream , cheese are crushed together in a mor tar. Sherry is added until the mix ture is of the consistency of thick mayonnaise. This is then spread in the stalks of celery, which have been previously separated and trimmed, if needed, to suitable lengths. • Cook one cupful fine cut celery in boiling salted water until tender, then drain. Place a half pint of oysters in their own liquor in a saucepan over the fire and cook until plumped, sea son with saltspoonful salt and a llt . tie less pepper. Mix a teaspoonful flour with a tablespoonful butter, stir into the oysters and add a quarter cup rich milk. Add the celery to the oysters, then pour over buttered toast. Pretty Curtains. Very effective curtains may be made that are not forever in need of the washtub and stretching poles, as are those of muslin and lace. Buy a thin grade of glass-cloth for about 25 cents a yard. Cut it to hang straight from the top of the window on each side, with a deep hem at the bottom. Then make a stenciled border across the bottom, or reaching one-half way up the curtain, of a simple design. Apply the color over the design with navy blue diamond dye. Do not trou ble yourself to boil it. Simply mix a spoonful of the dye with water. These curtains will not wash, but they re main clean for a considerable time, and may be easily shaken to free them from dust and pressed with an iron. Preserve California’s Forests. The state of California, which has within its borders over 28,000,000 acres of forest, is taking steps j perma nently to preserve practically the whole amount. California’s forests are looked upon not only as a great wood supply; they are far more val uable as a medium of water conserva tion. The Greatest Grief.

Foster-Milbum Cos., Buffalo, n. y. AT THE SUMMER HOTEL. Experience of Winston Churchill Fa miliar to Many. I ‘ Winston Churchill in an address that he made in Concord recently praised the New Hampshire farmer. “Ours,” he said, ‘‘is a state fitted above all others for a summer resort. New Hampshire, with its superb cli mate, its mountains, . its lakes and forests, will In a generation or two be one great pleasure ground—a vast park, dotted with beautiful villas, to which will come each summer fam ilies from all parts of America. “In anticipation of this many farm ers are learning to conduct hotels. They are building cottages for sum mer visitors. Some of them, too, are taking boarders. “And I am glad to say that the New Hampshire farmer is in a position to take boarders, because, unlike the farmers in other states that I could name, he does not send all his good things to the city. I once boarded at a fine big farm, but the fare was wretched —canned vegetables, con densed milk and so on. “ ‘By Jove,* I said one morning at breakfast, as I pushed my egg cup from me, ‘these eggs are really not as fresh as those I get in New York.’ My farmer host snorted. “ rank prejudice on your part, Mr. Churchill,’ he said. ‘lt’s from New York that all our egga come.’ ” NO REST NIGHT OR DAY. With Irritating Skin Humor—Hair Began to Fall Out—Wonderful Re sult from Cuticura Remedies. “About the latter part of July my whole body began to itch. I did not take much notice of it~at first, but it began to get worse all the time, and then I began to get uneasy and tried all kinds of baths and other remedies that were recommended for skin hum ors; but I became worse all the time. My hair began to fall out and my scalp Itched all the time. Especially at night, just as soon as I would get in bed and get warm, my whole body would begin to itch and my finger nails would keep it irritated, and it was not long before I could not rest night or day. A friend asked me to try the Cuticura Remedies, and I did, and the first application helped me wonderfully. For about four weeks I would take a hot bath every night and then apply the Cuticura Ointment to my whole body; and I kept getting better, and by the time I used four boxes of Cuticura I was entirely cured, and my hair stopped falling out.
