'APRIL 5 1906 U6e Nobrashtx Independent HOME LIFE WISDOM FOR THE KITCHEN. The lady In the kitchen will not sacrifice her hands where it is pos sible) to give them protection, and if a trained worker she has many little de vices for quick accomplishment,, order, and saving herself. Over her sink are half a dozen implements to make dish washing handy, the small mop for glasses, the larger one for dishes, the little whisk broom for custard kettles or the saucepan in which milk has been scalded, the wire dishcloth for the mush kettle and the glutinous things which in spite of soaking ad here tenaciously. And there are the sand soap and the little match to the vegetable brush, both of which are needed for the iron pan in which there has been both a little frying and a little thickening. To clean the sink there is the common scrubbing brush with flaring bristles to touch the cor ners only this is kept half size. She is not disturbed by what is said in abuse of the mop, but knows that if the much malinged mopstick Is fur nished with a soft, spongy, half wooden and half cotton cloth that can be easily wrung, it only needs constant cleans ing and freshening under the hot water faucet to make it perform wonders OOOOOCI in the way of getting in the corners. She leaves getting down on her knees for people that are better fitted for it and saves her back. Another strong point of the trained worker is the way she keeps every thing, including, the floor, clean as she,! goes along. No ;dish that she empties of its contents at the range is stacked or put to "soak," but is held under the hot water and the manipulation of the Htle whisk broom until cleansed while it' is still hot. If iron it will dry by its own heat under this .treatment' and - be" ready to put away. It takes only a minute, but saves infinite labor aftfer the grease, sugar and meat juices have hardened on. f i " So deftly does she . handle things tha she can get a dinner from start to finish and her apron, dress, and hands are as clean and her kitchen as, orderly when she is through as when she began. Household work is not dirty if prop erly done, and one of the secrets of its not being so is in having the proper things at hand, especially when cooking. The holder and a fresh towel should be attached by tapes to the apron. The hand towel roller should be but a turn from the hot and cold water. The salt, pepper and flour dredger should be on a little swing within reach of the stove. A round asbestos mat should hang near to slip under thing and a double sized and clean one kept ready 'to slip under every table dish that has to stand for a few minutes in the oven or back on the stove shelf.

Velvet ribbons are used to a very great extent at this moment for the trimming of hats, in bows, ruchings and rosettes. . White gloves for day and evening are more than ever the rage, and there is a new shade of very palest lemon kid with black stitching, which is very smart. The smartest handkerchiefs, for using with tailor-made frocks are of plain white, with a hemstitched bor der of colored lawn to match the color of the dress; while there is a revival of lace handkerchiefs for evening wear. - Sleeves will be short. They will be made in' a thousand ways of lace frills and ruffles; with cuffs and with outbut whatever else they are they will be short. Many of the newest coats for girls are made in a three-quarter length. Empire shape, with a yoke arranged to give a short-waisted effect, both back and front, and either stitched and strapped, or trimmed with wide silk braid. Below this coat the yoke hantrs looselv. both back and front. Other coats, again, are made to fit the fieure auite closely, and when these are well cut, so that they give a loner-waisted effect, they are very becoming As a rule, they are finished with quite long basques, reaching al most to the knees. In the case of girls who are still growing, however, a looser style of coat is more sensible, and far more comfortable in every way. The double-breasted reefer coats, with semi-fitting backs, can scarcely be improved upon for a girl's coat and skirt costume, to be worn over a simple flannel blouse, and with a per- ectly plain skirt.

OCXXXXXXXXnOOQOOOC)CXXCOOC TO BE BEAUTIFUL. Don't eat when tired and don't work when tired. It is a mistake to work when not in a fit condition bad for the work and worse for you. , After long standing or running about bathe the feet with vinegar and warm' water. The effect is wonder fully refreshing. Don't neglect sleep. You can sleep yourself into good looks. A long nap and a hot bath will make any woman more attractive and lift years from her shoulders. Don't forget that the nurses of a woman's beauty are seven fresh air, sunshine, warmth, rest, sleep, food and whatever stirs the .blood, be it exer cise or enthnsiasm. It is not generally known that the hands depend upon the state of health for beauty, quite as much as the com plexion, but it is a fact. The hygienic laws recommended for the improve ment of the skin will all be found good and necessary for the hands. In ad dition, a few helps along this line of outside application will be needed, more especially by those who work. Continued overindulgence in the sweets is quite certain to give rise to a dyspeptic condition and to constipa tion. Of course, all the cereals con tain more or less starch, but wheat rye and barley contain less than most other grains. Starch composes about one-fifth of potatoes, one-half of peas, beans, wheat, rye and oats, and three- fourths of rice and Indian corn. wide layers together to the required thickness and lay between-the other blankets or comfortables. The same Idea can be utilized to advantage by keeping the air from creeping up into the baby's sled or carriage. Line the. bottom of the vehicle with thick paper, letting it come up well. ' . . 4. HOW TO REST. Take the advice of Herbert Spencer and rest your head the first. " I always put my head to sleep for an hour a day," said he, when asked how he did so much work. Ruskin said practically the same thing. "I drop &&&&&&&&&&&&& & HINTS BY MAY MANTON & J - - - ' : . 2 J & S & J NewsDaoers make a light, warm - 1 i! .
