One of the most maddening things
about choosing wall papers Is that
when one has at last found the right
thing It turns out to be an imported
paper at fl£6 or $2 a roli. In many
other ways wall papers are unsatisfac
tory. They add warmth and color and
cheer to rooms to which they are well
adapted, but they fade rapidly, soil
and mar easily and seldom last more
than three or four years without clam
oring for renewal. Many of the ultra
artistic echew them altogether. There
are many good arguments to support
this position, though it is evident that
unless the walls are designed and spe
cially prepared to serve without paper

A profitable occupation for woman
vrill tx? found in conducting a tea room
Ie the right way. These pleasant meet
ing and gossiping places for friends
are already extremely popular and be
coming more so as women emerge from
domestic seclusion. Whether out foT
business or pleasure, a lady feels hun
gry after several hours. To tind near
at hand a clean, cozy place of refresh
ment, not so public us a restaurant,
not rendered so formidable by imperial
and princely waiters as a hotel table,
this is something that appeals to the
soul of every woman. At a tea room,
too, she can get just what women like
—cake, ices, sweets of all kinds, tea
biscuit, tea, coffee and chocolate. This
menu is far more pleasing to the aver
age feminine palite than are the
greasy meats and fiery drinks which
the woman sex at least appears to be
evolving away from.
The tea room is of British institu
tion. In England until recently it was
not considered the proper thing for a
woman to go into a public restaurant
and eat. Why it is hard to say. So
the tea room was started, tirst in Lon
don, then in other towns. Tea is as
dear as kings and bacon are to the
British soul, so tea was the first thing
thought of when a room where women
might eat was suggested. The idea
spread rapidly, for the new woman
was stirring very uneasily under the
hampering conventionality which shac-

kled her. Paris caught It, too, al
though it never became so fashionable
there as in London, for French women
are freer than English ones so far as
social customs go.
Meantime the tea room idea reached
the United Suites. In Washington it is
naturally popular. Both men and wom
en friends meet to chat and imbibe
Russian tea or whatever is their par
At least one or two tea rooms would
prosper in any American city contain
ing as many as 100,000 inhabitants, or
less than tbat number if the people
were of a well to do, leisure class. At
the summer resorts these pleasant es
tablishments would be as popular as in
the cities. A woman desiring to em
bark in the business should herself un
derstand making all kinds of cakesj in
the best homemade way. There is a
demand for all, from the slice of pound
cake to the crisp cookies. The woman
must also have a business head and
know how to count up profit and loss.
If she is able to make candy, too, so
much the better. Homemade sweets
are more dainty than those of the av
Several ladies might go into partner
ship in the tea room enterprise, one un
derstanding the business management
of the place, the others knowing how
to prepare the confections. High color
ing and cheap flavors are especially to
be avoided in tea room confections. The
furniture should be very simple and of
the bamboo or wicker variety. Heavy
effects in upholstery or anything else
are to be avoided. All must be light,
cheerful and pretty. The front win
dows should be made particularly in
viting to the outside glimpse. Tables
large enough, some for a tete-a-tete of
two, others for three and four persons,
are requisite. A tea room could be very
successfully conducted in connection
with a woman's exchange, where the
business experience necessary to oper
ate it is already attained.
The owner of a large tea room busi
ness in London calculates that the gross
prolit on all cakes sold amounts to 48
per cent; on candies, or '"sweets." as the
British call them, 70 per cent, and on
tea 75 per cent. Out of these profits
niusi come the wages of employees, the
rent and all other expenses.
Of course some capital is necessary
In beginning, at least $500 even for a
very small tea room. The china and
linen must be dainty. In leading tea
rooms of Paris Japanese paper nap
kins are used. The best preparatory
experience for running a tea room, out
side of actual service in such an estab
lishment, is a certain amount of fa
miliarity with the manufacturing con
In addition to the regular tea room
service it would be easy to conduct a
catering business. Women's clubs in
many cases simply order their after-
Doon tea refreshments from caterers,
and a tea room conducted by women
would be well patronized on such oc
casions. Then. too. there are many of
homes and afternoons and even even
lug receptions where the woman cater

Woman's Kidney Troubles
Lydia E. PtnKham's Vegetable Compound is Espe
cially Successful in Curing This Fatal
Of all the diseases known, with
which women are afflicted, kidney dis
ease is the most fatal. In fact, unless
early and correct treatment is applied,
the weary patient seldom survives.
Being fully aware of this, Mrs. Pink
ham, early in her career, gave exhaust
ive study to the subject, and in pro
ducing her great remedy for woman's
ills —Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound—was careful to see that it
contained the correct combination of
herbs which was sure to control that
fatal disease, woman's kidney troubles.
The Vegetable Compound acts in har
mony with the laws that govern the
entire female system, and while there
are many so called remedies for kidney
troubles, Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound is the only one espe
cially prepared for women, and thou
sands have been cured of serious kidney
derangements by it. Derangements of
the feminine organs quickly affect the
kidneys, and when a woman has such
symptoms as pain or weight in the
loins, backache, hearing down pains,
urine too frequent, scanty or high col
ored, producing scalding or burning,
or deposits like brick dust in it; un
usual thirst, swelling of hands and feet,
swelling under the eyes or sharp pains
in the back running down the inside
of her groin, she may be sure her kid
neys are affected and should lose no
time in combating the disease with

could hardly walk across the room. I did not
get any better, so decided to stop doctoring
with my physician and take Lydia E. Pink

all the bad symptoms have disappeared.
