Tpe philosophy of clothes is a serious
study, aud instead of it being frowned
upon by men who associate it with wild
extravagance, it shduld be incorporated
u? first among the by-laws at home. So
far as I am able to judge, tbe belief that
clothes grow is largely responsible for do
mestic difficulties. And this is a belief
brought about by a cowardly and non
sensical practice adopted by women on
the home trip from the altar.
When her husband admires the trim
V aud stylish appearance of the traveling
gown she is apt to be tempted by the ir
responsible imp of future mischief to tell
him that it cost but little; iu fact, she
never spends much money on her clothes.
' This small and unnecessary fiction may
win her a burfct of praise likely to betray
her brideship to the porter. But it un>.k:j,<
a deal of trouble afterward, and to
the end she keeps up the deceit she has
started.
It is a curious thing that the most hon
est. frank and truthful women will hesi
tate and fib when they ask their hus
bands for money.’ and the most generous
good fellows in the world, who love to
spend dollars as the farmer sows bis
wheat, look concerned when the women
they love ask them for what they must
have. ..* ‘ ' ’
The wife of a millionaire who never
made anything but her complexion once
told me that her husband believed she
made and designed her own bonnets and
gowns because she had begun that way
with him and had not now tip* courage
to meet bis disapproval.
A little honesty at the start would
make the financial side of marriage much
pleasanter, and it is difficult to under
stand why women prevaricate and fib
* when the broad and easy path of truth
is so much better unless it be the unfor
tunate habit men have of making a row
whenever they are taxed.
They don’t mean it. They do not know
that the very need of asking hurts and
humiliates a proud woman. They have,
every man of them, occupied the position
of Providence pro tem. over their house
told.
I was told tbe other day of a fiue. jolly
gentleman who rallied his wife on her dif
fidence this way: ‘'Ashamed to ask me
for anything? Nonsense. You can come
to me ns you ean go to God." ^
And he never knew the supreme egot
ism of his speech, either, and so long as
she found nothing to smile over in it nil
seems to be doing well.
Women hate to speak of unpleasant
subjects. Very early in their experience
they are made to feel that money is an
unpleasant subject. Hence they resort
to all sorts of foolish subterfuges to ob
tain possession of it without open speech
This doe* not mean that they are deceit
ful. A woman is no more deceitful than
A man. But she is more careful in metli
aod of speech, fearing she wjll give of
Nature sets an example for things new.
She never wears the castaway leaves of
seasons past. There is no remade foli
age on the trees, no flaunting of spring
colors in tbe November air. The skies
are veiled in tints tipe summer never saw
and the earth ip her age is as changeful
as a maid
The influence of dress is greater than
we own. We feel better, and bring more
hope to ones who love us when we iye
properly gowned. An ill-dressed woman
may have the wisdom ot a sage and the
beauty of Helen of Troy; but among her
sisters she is at a disadvantage until she
becomes enough like them to be incon
spicuous. e

A MASS J7 SORES.
\wful Suffering of a Boy from aa
Itching Humor.
Not One Square Inch of.Skin on HU
Whole Body Unaffected.
CURED BYCUTICURA
•‘ My little son, a boy of five, broke
out with an itching rash. Three doctors
) prescribed for him, but he kept getting
worse, until we could not dress him any
more. They finally advised me to try a
certain medical college but Us treatment
did not do any good. At the time I was
Induced to try Cutlcura Remedies L:
was so bad that I had to cut his hair ou
and put the Cutlcura Ointment on him
' on bandages as it was impossible to
touch him with the bare hand. There
was not oue square inch of skin on his
whole body that was not affected. He
was one mass of sores. The bandages
used to stick to his skin and in remov
ing them it used to take the skin off
with them, and the screams from the
| poor child were heart-breaking. 1
; beaan to think that he would never get
! well, but after the secoud application
of Cutlcura Ointment I began to see
sign* of improvement, and with the I
third and fourth applications the sores \
commenced to dry np. His skin peeled j
off twenty times, but it finally yielded I
to the treatment. I used the Cuticura j
Resolvent for his blood aDd now I can
say that he is entirely cured, and a j
stronger and healthier boy you n*ver
saw than he Is to-day. You can use 1
this testimonial In whatever way you
I please, and if any proof outside of my
word is needed I will refer to any of
our neighbors." Robert Watt am,
4923 Center Ave., Chicago, 111.

NO RETURN IN SIX YEARS
Mr. Wattam Writes, Feb. 23, 1903,
| Cure was Thorough and
Successful.
••Your letter of the 21st In regard to
the case of my little boy at hand. I am
truly thankful to say that the cure
effected by the Cutlcura Remedies has
been a most thorough and successful
cure to date. There has been no return
of the disease, and my boy who is now
past eleven, years is as strong and
healthy a boy as any one would wish for,
with a skin as soft and delicate as a
baby."*

delicate blue gray color. Plain color is
preferred in this, and,smooth material is
the kind best suited for a general good ef
fect. Henrietta cloth, challis. nun’s veil
ing voile and etamine are all of the tex
ture which, made- up plainly with very
little or no contrasting trimming, makes
very acceptable first fall gowns. As gray
is not usually a color—or almost a lack
of color, one might say—that is at all be
coming to a pale or sallow skin, now is
tlie time par excellence to 'get ready the
Quaker like garment which brings into
pretty contrast the rosy red complexion
of . the summer -away sojourner. Gray
lias another quality that is not always
appreciated by the home buyer and sew
er. That is its odd characteristic of mak
ing the wearer look as large or larger
than any other color worn except perhaps
white. The too stout woman should
avoid light, delicate shade*, of gray.
Those pearly dove colors so fashionable
in old time romances are not for the
stout maid or matron who wishes to look
her best. On the other hand, as a means
of giving more apparent embonpoint the
wearing of gray is recommended. A light
gray Henrietta cloth dress tucked a great
deal is a model for a gown that, if any-'
thing will, will defy angles and give the
wearer a pleasing outline and good effect
of figure not possible with most dress
creations.

Melon en surprise is a pleasing variant
of the usual cantaloupe with ice cream.
To prepare it: Cut off a slice at the stalk
end of a large ripe melon end remove
carefully the seeds and then core; then,
with a silver knife, scoop out as much
of the flesh as possible, being careful
not to injure or break the rind. Pound
three-quarters of the flesh till smooth,
and mix it with a pint of water, the
juice of two oranges, and two lemons,
and three ounces of caster sugar. When
this is all well blended and half frozen,
add a wineglass of maraschino and half
a pint of-champagne, and. lastly, a gill
of Italian meringue, finish freezing, and
pile all this well up in the melon, which
should be kept on ice till wanted.
The rest of the melon should be thinly
sliced, marinaded with sugar and a little
champagne, and left in the ice chest till
wanted. All sorts of fillings may be
used for the melon.
For Italian meringue: Bring one pound
of cane loaf sugar to the boil in half a
piut of water, and boil it to “the ball.”
after which pour it slowly andnteg ly on
the whites of six eggs, previously whisked
to a stiff froth, and mix it 4II smoothly
together. Egg whites for meringue
should be whisked until quite stiff and
standing up In points, the sugar being
added in lightly and quickly at the

The autumn girT satisfactorily answers
the old question, “Who’s got the butfon ?”
She has, and plenty of them- Collecting
them is a fad of the girl of today, and
it’s a useful fad, too. Instead of being
kept on n string, after the old-time
school-girl way, or arranged in cabinets
like coins and medal*, they are now used
to decorate her lab-si sweater. Surely
here is novelty for you, for the sweater
heretofore has bee* jinsyieuou* for its

lack of button* rather than for its many
buttons. She doesn’t wear her heart
on her sleeve, this girl of today, but
that's where she does put her buttons.
She buttons her sleeve straight up from
the wrist to the shoulder, and the but
tons go further, reaching over the shoul
der and up to the top of the collar.
The common custom of using rush mots
under hot dishes ns a protection to the
polished wood does not appeal to a
| housewife as giving an air of daintiness
to a prettily set dining table, and we sug
gest a pretty idea for table mats, says
“The Pilgrim.” Cut n round or oblong
piece of linen, the size desired and em
broider with sprays of flowers or a con
ventional desjgn. then cut two pieces
half as large for the under side. Place
the two straight ed’es together, which
should be on tne selvage at the middle
I across the center. When placed in this
manner, they are the sie of the upper
piece, and both should be basted together
and a scallop worked around the edge
through the top and under side. Now
you have a mat with an opening in the
center, info which you can slip a piece
of asbestos cut the shape of the linen,
only a trifle smaller. Whin the mat
needs laundering, slip out the asbestos
and launder sgiue as doilies.

The young girl has many pretty
styles for her especial benefit this year,
chief among these being the accordion
plaited skirt and the loose accordion
plaited blouse belted in with a swathed
band of silk or satin. When trimmed
with fancy buttons these little accor
dion plaited suits are charming for the
country and later on in heavier mate
rials for school wear.

Row Re Won Hla Oet.
In a certain office building In the
downtown district there is a club on
an upper floor, with an express eleva
tor service for members. The other
day two of the latter emerged from the
dining room, where they had eaten
luncheon, and eyed the elevator floor
Indicator. The arrow moved in two
shafts, one of them the club elevator
express route. ^
“It’s wonderful, how much time a
man can save by those expresses,” re
marked one of the pair.
“Nonsense," said his companion, “I
can get to the bottom on a local and
beat you y?hile;I am doing It.”
“Ten dollars that you can't,” was the
reply.
The cages in both shafts opened with
a click, and without further parley the
two men separated, entering the differ
ent elevators. The local got away a
fraction of a moment ahead of the ex
press. When the man in the latter
stepped out his acquaintance was wait
ing for him.
“How did you do it?” gasped the ex
press passenger, digging down for the
forfeited bank note.
“That was easy," said his companion.
“I gave my elevator man half of the
bet—in advance—and ho didn’t make
any stops.”—Now York Post
