Headdress for Mornings
The tendency has been of late years to leave off hats In the sum
mer time as much as possible. Girls have knotted veils behind the ears
and have contrived many other little fanciful head dresses to protect
their tresses from the winds, but it has remained for an American girl
artist in Paris to send us a charming and Frenchy little design that
the eye of our summer g rls —one and all —on the Instant.
It la simply a large silk handkerchief In cashmere design draped
over a very large wire frame —which is light in weight and protects the
hair. The 'kerchief is edged with black moire, and there Is a black
tassel at each corner. And it may be made at home, which is not the
least of Its charms.
Selfish Grouch Buys Her
One Dress in Thirteen Years
Are love and tender care and the ordinary consideration one
stranger extends to another too much for a woman to ask of her
husband? I have just received a letter from a woman whose hus
band seems to tnmk so. It is the story of another ideal shatter
ed, of ti woman living a dun-colored life. Her husband Isn't brutal.
He doesn't drink. He saves his money. But he's selfishness In
carnate. He never thinks of his wife as a chum, a companion, a
friend. She's just a piece of furniture in the household. 1 have
seldom read a more pitifully vivid letter of the dreary, soul-killing
life led by innumerable wives. Here is the letter, just as it came
to me:
Dear Miss Grey: Has my bus-1
band realized lor me the one big
tiling 1 required of a husband? 1 |
will tell you first what 1 would
ask, then what I have. First, I
would usk that my husband love
me as well as himself, that he try
to make our home happy and take
pride enough In his wife to dress
her as well as he can afford. He
shoul dtake her out once or twice
a week; go to church, or, at least,
ullow her to go; be a sympathetic
friend, to whom she may tell her
plans, hopes and aspirations; try
to make her life pleasant as well
as his own; give up once In a while I
some small comfort to please her.
My husband loves mo, oh, yes,
but it is a selfish love. I am not
beautiful, nor even pretty; there
is no "nameless charm" about me
that compels everyone to love me.
I am rather homely than Other
wise. My health has never been
good. I am fretful, I know, and
often very disagreeable. Still, he
Is jealous, and afraid someone
else will watn me, nnd doesn't
want me to have any friends, only

nam ing looks foolish to him. He
doesn't care for socials or lodge en
tertainments, therefore 1 never
go to anything of that kind any
more. He doesn't care for com
so we seldom go more than twice
a year. He doesn't care for com
pany, doesn't like to go to a

home he will say "how to do you,"

seldom "dress up" on Sunday or
in the evening. He has never
bought me but one dress. That
cost him $5 and $2 was a big price
for a hat. Shoes at $1,50 were
good enough. He paved money on
$1.25 per day; now he gets $2 aud
lie still saves it.
When tho colthei I had when I
was married nil gave out I went to
work in a factory for four years,
going at 7 in the morning, quitting
at 11 to walk home 10 blocks and
cook a warm dinner, then going
back at 1 o'clock to work till 5
or 5:30; coming home again to
'cook supper and do up my own
housework, often working until
9:30 in the kitchen alone, while he
sat by the fire and rested. At the
end of four years my health gave
out. 1 had to quit.
The money I earned went for fur
niture and just enough clothes to
make mo look respectable. He
didn't want me to buy either, "Why
couldn't I put my money In the
hank instead of blowing every cent
1 got?" Often he would get mad
because I paid a few cents for
some little ornament and read me
a lecture on economy. My grocery
bills were never above $2..">0 per
week. After a year's rest and doc
toring I have gone to work again.
He must know every cent I earn
and what It goes for. I do not go
to theaters or entertainment!. Hub
by will not go and will not allow
me to go without him, for "some
will soon talk," or "I'll get a nice
name running around ulouo," and
"a woman's place is at home." 1
can't go to church because I must
cook a hot dinner for Sunday noon.
Now for his side. He si»ys lie is
always on time for his meals, al
ways at home evenings; ho Is
steady, saving, and true to his
wife; ho carries in the wood and
gets the water; he gets up In the
morning and builds the fires; he
is never brutal to Ills wife, or any
thing else, which is all very true.
Hut he is neither very hnppy him
self nor does he make anyone else
very happy. There is roally very
little to complain of, maybe, yet it
Is all very disappointing.

When linen has been laundered
and stains are left, try pure kero
sene, using a small brush dipped in
the oil to scrub the spot. In nine
cases out of 10 the kerosene will
effectually remove the trouble with
out further effort, and is a remedy
which is always found at hand
whenever it Is needed.
It Is said that knitting Is a help
ful exercise for hands liable to be
come stiff from rheumatism, and It
Is being prescribed by physicians
because of its efficacy. For persons
liable to cramps, paralysis or any
similar affection of the fingers,
knitting is regarded as a most ben
eficial exorcise.
Gloves, shoes and hose should
harmonize with the rest of the
toilet, and their number should be
limited by onry the amount of one's
clothes money.
After removing all the dirt from
patent leather shoes, rub the sur
face well with a milky rag. then
polish It with a dry cloth. This not
only gives the leather a bright ap
pearance, but preserves It.
An excellent substitute for break
fast bacon, which retails for 30
cents a pound, is salted pork, at 20
cents a pound. Have the butcher
slice It thin, trim and pour boiling
water over, let it stand a few min
utes. Drain and wipe dry, sprinkle
with a little pepper, roll In flour
and fry a light brown. It is pre
ferred to bacon.
Goodness! here's a new Idea dis
counting the old, reliable "lisle
thread" bank, where womankind
has kept her money on deposit
these many years. An enterpris
ing shoe manufacturer is making
boots for fall wear with a dainty
patent leather pocket on the side,
near the top. where it's supposed to
be covered by tho skirt.
It's a novelty, all- right, but
whether women generally will re
gard it as safe is another matter.
There's never any Question about
the little wad of bils pinned to the
insido' of one's stocking, however.
Except in instances like that of the
woman who went bathing In the
pair she wore on the beach, then
donned a dry pair and left the wet
ones, money aud all, on the Hue

Tho fact that a piano has come to

The selection of a dealer from
which to buy Is just as important as
the selection of a piano. You can
judge a piano by the dealer who
handles it and the man who makes
It; likewise you can judge a dealer
by the makes ho handles and his
reputation among the buying public.
In connection with this thought,
let us remind you that Kilers Music

NIGHTS " T l% I°™"'
I am a prince and have always
been renowned for my learning and
the many languages I understand.
One day I was sent by my father
to a distant country to translate
some valuable papers for a friend.
My horse took fright at something
in the road, bolted and threw me.
When I regained my senses the
horse had vanished. I arose and
walked a short distance, when to 1
my astonishment I noticed before
me an iron plate evidently fast
ened to the ground; in the center
was a heavy iron ring. With soma
difficulty I raised this and discov
ered an iron stair, down which I
hastened with great curiosity. I
found myself in a large, well
lighted palace. A very fair and
queenly lady welcomed me eagerly
and asked for news of the outside
world. "You are the first man,"
she said, "whom I have seen for
15 years. My father, the king of
the Ebony Isles, had chosen me a
husband, but on the very night
that I was to wed him a genie
snatched me away and brought
me her. Every ten days the
genie comes to see me, and, if I
should chance to want him often
er, I touch this talisman and he
appears. It is six days before his
next arrival, so I invite you to stay
here as my guest.
Within a very few days I had
fallen desperately in love with the
princess, and was begging her to
flee with me. But, although she
loved me, the fear of the genie
held her back. This roused my
anger, and .striding to the talis
man, I struck at it until I had de
stroyed it completely. Straight
way the walls of the palace shook
and opened. At the urgent prayer
of the princess I fled through the
palace, up the little stairs, and
regained the upper air. I had not
gone far. however, when I heard
a rushing noise, and was snatched
up in a whirlwind and carried
back to the palace. But, alas, what
a change! There lay my princess
her garments, her face, her golden
hair stained with blood, her lovely
eyes full of tears. Towering over
her stood the terribie genie, who
turned to me and said: "I offer
you two your choice; one of you
must kill the other. To the sur
vivor I will grant life and liberty."
Of course neither of us would con
sent. Thereupon the monster in a
rage drew his sword and plunged it
into my beloved's heart. Now I,
too, begged for death, but the cruel
