Dear Miss Grey: Would it be
harmful to wash the face and then
apply a coat of cold cream and
powder over that before retiring
at night?
Can you tell me of something
harmless which, when taken be
fore retiring at night, will keep
the breath sweet and clear till
morning? —A Bother.
A.— Powdering the face upon
retiring does absolutely no good,
and tends to clog the pores. The
best treatment Is to wash the face
without too vigorous rubbing with
hot castile soap suds, and then
rinse in a very cold, clear water.
On one night retire with nothing
additional to this treatment. . The
next night repeat the treatment,
and ln addition anoint the face
with a pure cold cream. Repeat
these two plans alternately. The
best thing for the breath ls to
keep,the stomach and 'bowels reg
ular. Do not eat too heavily a
short time before retiring. Clean
the teeth and tongue and nose
upon retiring and arising.
Dear Miss Grey: What causes
blushes, and what will cure
them? —Tillle.
A.—Blushing Is a symptom of
self consciousness, and the only
cure Is utter forgetfulness of self.
The girl who blushes ought to be
proud of it, not ashamed.
Dear Miss Grey: Will you please
give me a recelpe for, getting rid
of bedbugs without staining the
mattress? —V. S.
A.—The use of a recommended
powder exterminator is the only
way I can suggest.

marvels that everybody has seen or'

up, a royal household thoroughly

from taint of scandal.
That's probably more than can
be said of any other of the great

let's talk about the family of King
Victor Emmanuel and let the
threadbare Italian marvels pass.
In the first place the royal fam

•- ; •
Every possible effort Is being made by the medical profusion ;
of the world to stamp out the dreaded disease known as infantile j
paralysis. While an isolated case is heard from now and then in
the spring and autumn, and occasionally ln the winter, infant".:
paralysis as an epidemic is a summer disease, being prevalent in
July, August and September. The Rockefeller Institute Is now bend
ing every energy with that end in view.— Editor.
Keep your children away from suspected cases.
Keep the mouth and nasal passages clean, for it is through
these organs the germ enters and attacks the spinal marrow and j
the brain, causing either a temporary or a permanent paralysis of ,
the muscles. If the latter is true, if the child's life is saved, it will
be a helpless, hopeless cripple for life. The germ Is so small that
it cannot be seen even through the most powerful microscope, but
after years of research it was finally determined about a year ago
that there is such a germ.
Like typhoid or scarlet fever, the germ can be carried by per
fectly healthy persons, who themselves will not contract the disease,
"but who may transfer the germ to others.
Disinfect or destroy the secretions of the nose and mouth of the
patients, for the disease Is thrown off .Inst as it is contracted, from
the brain through the nose and mouth.
While chiefly a disease of the children, infantile paralysis some
times attacks adults. The beginning of epidemics which made many
American homes desolate has been, traced to schools, but even
Fourth of July celebrations and country fairs have been known to
originate them.
While Infantile paralysis epidemics are new to this country, the
disease has been known for half a century. For years these epi
demics were limited to Norway and Sweden, but three years ago
one started in New York, and has since extended over the entire
North American continent.
At present there is no cure, no remedy, for this awful children's
scourge, but preventive measures, intelligently employed, will di
minish the number of cases.

Beauty in Your Home Yard
This article is about the front
yard, tho sldeyards and the back
yard of which we have already
talked. The appropriate use of
shrubs and vines gives a charm
and beauty to the yard very
pleasing to the passerby and to
yourself. Plants are the means of'
expressing restfulness and beauty.
A perfect lawn is one of the
rarest possessions of either public
or private establishments. The
chief charm of a lawn consists in
even stand of grass of uniform
color kept closely mown. Ken
tucky bluegrass does well in
heavy soil, but In lighter, sandy
soils it must be supplemented j
with white clover.
Frequent clippings of the lawn
(not too closely) stimulate the
growth. During dry seasons
sprinkle lawn at night, but give It
enough water to wet the soil. A
little water Is an injury.
Unsightly fences, stables and
outhouses can be hidden by shrubs
and Vines, Some shrubs retain
their foliage well on Into the win
ter, white others, such as the Cali
fornia privet and many of the
barber-les, retain it all winter.
Some of the magnolias retain their
large, glossy leaves until the ap
proach of spring, when they turn
brown and fall, to be replaced a
few weeks later by a new set.
Others, which require wire or
wood supports, are the clematis
with all its varied forms, the wis
taria, the trumpet flower. For
sandy regions the Japanese honey
suckle is excellent.
Annual vines also serve a use
ful purpose. While they have to
be replanted each year, they ar
rive at maturity much quicker
than the permanent ones, which
during the first two or three
years produce little shade or cov
ering. In rich, well-drained soil,
the moonflower, the cypress vine,
the hyacinth bean, tall nastur
tiums, and gourds for low screens
and lattices are One; and the
wild cucumber for taller struc
tures. •'
Maybe you'd like to try a vine
scheme that a practical woman
reader of the Times told us about.
She grew nasturtiums ok her
back fencethat was so she could
see the flowers from her kitchen
without even going to the door.
On one side fence she had morn
ing glories, moonflowers and hy
acinth beans, on the other side
fence—an ugly thing of blackened
pickets, she "'grew Hubbard
squash. She put a big shovelful
of manure in this squash hill
when she planted the seed, and ln
a few weeks that fence was out
of sight. It was one mass of hand
some foliage. Then, when the
frost crumpled the leaves, she
gathered 20 fine squashes for win
ter use.
