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 there Is much of color and charm lack ing In the room.—Oliver Coleman in House Beautiful. TEA ROOMS. ■Tjey Yield Good Return* When Th«y Are Properly Managed. 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- IN A TEA BOOM. 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 ticular variety. 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 erage confectioner. 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 fectioner's trade. 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 er would be very welcome. MARY EDITH DAY. OOLFAX GAZETTE, COT/FAX, WASHINGTON, APRIL 7, 1905. Woman's Kidney Troubles Lydia E. PtnKham's Vegetable Compound is Espe cially Successful in Curing This Fatal Disease. . 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 Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, the woman's remedy for wo man's ills. The following letters show how marvelously successful it is. Lvdia E.

When I first wrote to you I had suf fered for years with what the doctor called kidney trouble and congestion of the womb. My back ached dreadfully all the time, and I suffered so with that bearing-down feeling I 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 ham's Vegetable Compound and I am thank ful to say it has entirely cured me. Ido all my own work, have no more backache and all the bad symptoms have disappeared. I cannot praise your medicine enough, and would advise all women suffering withkidney trouble to try it. Mrs. J.

Pinkham's Vegetable Compound would cnre kidney disease, and I began to take it; and it has cured me when everything else had failed. 1 have recommended it to lots of people and they all praise it very highly.
