A Popular Variety For the Decoration of Linen and Juvenile Garments. A dainty decoration for children's gar ments is skeleton embroidery, a spec imen of which Is illustrated here. It is a development of shadow work and has the advantage of being easy to do. Those who have not the time and pa tience to execute solid embroidery will find this a satisfactory substitute. It may be used for napery as well as for garments. - Any kind of linen material answers for the background: the finer the tex ture the finer will be the threads re quired. Silk or linen thrjead is used in colors or black or white. The design Is traced on the material and the outline gone over in -running" stitch, using small, even stitches. Then the needle is passed through the stitches at opposite sides of a leaf or petal, starting at the end of the leaf and working to the top. The thread is then run in and out through the cross ing stitches back to the beginning to I.............." .....

The stems where inrrow are done in ordinary stem stitch. but if broad they are work ed as the leaflets. A design for a tea cozy may be work ed on linen with silk in two bhades of green for the leaves.nnd stems, the flower in pink and the ribbon in mauve. The centers are filled in with brown in a light shade for the French knots. Shading is not necessary, and the outlines are done in whatever thread Is used for the embroidery. It is well to practice on a small piece before attempting a larger, as any necessity for unpicking the work may mar its beauty. Other lace stitches are adaptable to this work. The outlines may be work ed in black to emphasize the design or in color when the rest of the de sign is carried out in white. Cleaning a Kettle. When an iron kettle is furred or coated fill it with water, add a large tablespoonful of sal ammoniac and let it boil for some minutes. Then emp ty the kettle and stand it over the fire till it is red hot, when the coating will peel off'. After this fill the kettle with soda and water and boil to clean it, then empty and rinse in pure water, when it will be ready for use. COMMON SENSE ANDTEMPER The Dentist and Doctor May Often Do More to Cure These Than the Most Zealous of Ministers Can Do. C ILDII EN are often punished for fits of temper whlei., if the truth were known, they should be taken to the dow tor.

Of course icing erauky gets to be a habit with inmny persons. but the habit usually lecan in sonie physical derangement. If you feel cross and out of sorts take Mtock of your physical condition.

Nit the poison which is lrncrated in the body from cations 1 uies5 If. for instance. decayed teeth or decayed stumps of teeth are allowed to remain in the gums a constant slow poisoning is set up from putrefactive matter in the mouth, and this affects the nerves. Now. poisoned nerves are very apt to get what we call "on edge." which is a polite way of saying that the per son suffering from them is irritable. snappish. peevish and generally un pleasant in temper. In this case the temper Isn't nearly so much a fault as a misfortune. The affected person is suffering and, un luckily, making others suffer, too. from ignorance of the fact that the nerves ought to be restored to a healthy con dition by removing the source of their poisoning-the decayed teeth. There is another fertile cause of pollutgon of the blood, and that is con stipation. It is responsible for a tre mendous amount of ill temper. A dose of epsom salts will often speedily cure an attack of ill temper. A dessertspoonful taken in .a big tum blerful of hot water half an hour be fore breakfast will often cut short an attack of "the blues" and remove the irritability which has been making one "Ill to live with." Another very good "temper cure." especially useful to those who object to or cannot take unpleasanit doses, is a good pinch of epsom or glauber salts. taken every morning for a week or two in one's early cup of coffee. One often hears of overeating as a cause of bad temper, and no doubt it is so. but undereating is just as fre quent a cause of ill temper, especially in the young and growing and in those who lead strenuous lives. Ill nourished nerves are just as apt to get "on edge" as poisoned nerves. Poor food, particularly food deficient in fat, gives rise to nerve starvation. and starved nerves are responsible for heuralgia. peevishness and temper. This does not mean that yotl should eat the fat of m~eat if it does not agree with you. You can get the most di gestible form of fat In good butter and in cream The wife of a well known physician said that since she began to give her husband plenty of cream with his food his temper-which had been very in' ritable--had greatly improved He has no idea that this pleasant remedy is given him as a specific' for his temper. It is given casually in coffee. with fruit. etc.-a regular amount every day-and his nerves are thus nourished and have ceased to he on edge Skirt Protectors. A useful skirt protector may be made as follows: Take one yard elastic ribbon one-half inch wide, two one and one-half yard lengths of ribbon a little w~ider than the elastic ribbon. Lay the two pieces of ribbon together. back to back. and stitch along the sides.. Then run the elastic ribbon between ribbons and fasten at each end with a large book and eye.. Place a bow of ribbon or a made rose upon one end. Wear this elastic band just below your hips and then pull your dress skirt up, allowing the skirt to fall over the top. These skirt protectors are in dispensable in protecting the edge of an even length dress under a long coat. n fystem In the Cupboard. An easy way to keep your kitchen cupboard neat and tidy is to take your cereals, sugar-in fact, all of your sta ple goods-directly they come from the store and place them in glass jars, so that when your cupboard door is open ed you can place your hands on any article wanted at once without upset ting shelves and scattering things around. You have no idea how nice it looks to see everything shining through glass jars and how much ex tra work it saves you hunting for arti cles. NEW FURS TO MATCH THE COLOR OF YOUR GOWN A FASHION NOVELTY Al I' /i~r n NEW EFFECTS IN FIUI'S ANY novelties in furs may be expected during the coming season. One of the chief of these is the use of dyed furs as trimmings on gowns and wraps. These are colored to suit the shade of the gar- I ment. While the more expensive furs are used in their natural state, the cheaper ones are dyed to match or contrast with the color of the clothes. Skunk, moleskin. seal, either real or imitation; caracul, pony skin and fox are among the fashionable furs. Some novelties have been shown which are said to be nothing more than pussy's coat very skillfully treated. There are many imitations of popular furs in fabrics. A coat of imitation lamb is illustrated. It has a collar and cuffs of skunk. A smart set in the popular black and white is shown on the other figure. It includes a collar made of one animal, while three have been used to create the ample muff. Washing Gloves. The secret of success in washing chamois and doeskin gloves lies In using lukewarm or cold *ater-better cool than even a few degrees too warm. That, at least, is one of the secrets; the other is to use soapy water. The soapier the water, provided it is of the right temperature, the silkier and soft er the gloves will be. They should first be freed from all dirt in a soapy bath and then put through another soapy bath in order that they may be rinsed from the dirt. They should then be pressed and squeezed in a thick towel until they are free from soap and water as nearly as possible. Then they are ready to be hung to dry in a cool, dry place. Never hang them near a fire and never hang them in the sunshine If you would have them soft and pliable after laun dering. Soiled Curtains. To clean soiled curtains take them down and stretch full length on a ta ble. pinning them tight with thumb tacks; then with a pad of coarse white flannel dipped in finely sifted starch treat the curtains on both sides to a vigorous scrub. Change the flannels as often as necessary for fresh ones. Finally roll the curtains up with a fresh coat of starch rubbed into them and lay aside for twenty-four hours. Another good rubbing with a clean flannel before they are hung should leave them fresh and new. Beaded Ribbon. Tulle ribbon eight inches wide edged with a ribbon stripe and spangled with glass beads is sold by the yard. This ribbon comes in pale yellow, pink. red, blue and violet and is used for bands and bows for the hair. BREAKFAST C0ffEE SERVED IN CUPS WITHOUT SAUCERS A NEW FAD NEW BREAKFAST CHINA. THE housewife who likes to add the most up to date fancies to the col lection in her china closet will be interested in the breakfast set illus trated here. It is an English novelty, and the china in this case is handsome Staffordshire ware mounted in silver plate. While dis tinctly attractive, the use of the silver mounts for coffeepot, sugar bowl and cream jug is said to protect them from damage. The coffeepot is odd in shape, and the cups are to be used without saucers. To many breakfast in bed is a real luxury, but the daintiness of the break fast tray adds much to the enjoyment of the meal and in the case of invalids often makes a difference in the morning appetite. As a rule. the woman who entertains much finds it more convenient to send trays to each guest's bedroom than to keep the meal waiting about downstairs. Therefore pretty china and linen are imperative. A handsome tray cloth adds greatly to the attractiveness of the tray, and various forms of needlework are employed in the making of it. A pretty no tion in vogue at present is to embroider the cloth in design and coloring ,to match the set of china which accompanies the tray. To produce a dainty effect a tray cloth should always look fresh and unsoiled. Of course this will mean a considerable item on the weekly laundry bill and also an outlay inihe keeping up of a stock of tray cloths. - There are, however, many housewives who dispense with the ubiquitous tray cloth, but in these cases the beauty of the tray should be such that the ornamental covering is not missed. 0 'lilt V.- .ii tt it I !
