" $ CONCERNING WOMEN The business of the gondoliers of Venice is being invaded by women, and the men are organizing unions to drive them out, Many women might take a few ideas from 'Tentente cordiale," and practice the economy of the French woman. A French woman with quite an ordinary income will not rpend a penny over ber allowance, and yet provide herself with good clothes, fine laces and a few choice furs, and, above all, she will be "chic" that most important - item. ,r She is careful of her gowns, makes them over each year to suit . new seasons, and is the epitome of daintiness from her dainty hat to her dainty boots. The well dressed French woman takes the greatest care of her hair, for, as well as carefully brush ing it, she scents it delicately, using the most fragrant but economical nat ural extracts. She knows how to put on her clothes, and her motto in dres sing herself is "Take time." Between the mountains of India and Persia is a powerful tribe, among whom women choose their own hus bands. When a single women desires to wed all she has to do is to send her servant to pin a handkerchief to the hat of the man sen has set her fancy on, and, unless he can show he is too poor to purchase her at the price her father demands, he is obliged to marry her.

Here the paneling are of ivory in gilt moldings; and other accessories are Beauvois tapestry, French carpet and Louis XVT. furniture. Her majesty's bathroom is quite new, and was espe cially built out. It is fitted with a path of Grecian marble from quarries which had been disused a thousand years. If gifls anftralned from childhood in the art of entertaining guests, they will naturally fall into the habit of consid ering home parties and gayeties a part of the daily life, and, what is perhaps not so well understood, be all the more popular for the reason that they are good hostesses.

SINGULARITIES. , A. A. Bousoff is a Russian painter of arctic scenes. To produce his sketches he was compelled to make toilsome and Imtardous journeys, during which he could only use charcoal and pastel. It was not possible, save in the spring, to use oil colors, and even then it was hard to mix them, the paints being froren. "Some of my sketches," he says, "I painted in the open air when it was bitterly cold. I had to put on fur gloves to hold the brush and work with rapid and energetic strokes. There wtre moments when my hands were frozen and refused service, my brush splitting with the cold. Yet I contin ued, having the ardent desire to fix on the canvas all those fantastic phe nomena of the far north, so full of fas cinating charm." ("apt.

CHINESE WOMAN HONORED Medal for Defying: a Chinese Super stition About the Drowning. Te Pat-mui, a Chinese woman of Hong Kong, has received a medal for bravery displayed during the great typhoon of September 18 last. She is the only woman who has ever been decorated for signal bravery in the history of the colony and probably the only Chinese -woman who holds a medal of honor presented by foreign ers. Te Pat-mui won the medal simply through not losing her head when In danger. - She was on the waterfront when tlje storm broke and she saw her house swept away by the waves that drove it from the outer harbor. Instead of joining the mad rush back to the upper lands, she stayed just outside the zone of the floating wreckage and busied herself pulling people off floating roofs and directing them to places of refuge. When most of the Chinese water dwellers had fled Te Pat-mui was noticed by the white men who were doing rescue work along the Hong Kong bund still busy directing those of her race who came drifting in to land where to go to get out of reach of thp waves, Along with the woman there were four Chinese men who received sim ilar medals from the representatives of the governor of Hong Kong. Xhese were two lightouse keepers, a fisher man and a constable. On January 19 the presentation was made. The governor's administrator gave Te. Pat-mui the favor of a spe cial commendation. He heard that she already had two sons and he gallantly wished her the joy of another soon. . "May the fourteen gods look over your excellency," she answered, "but the best wish that I can have is that Jf I ever get in trouble with your hon orable court you . will -remember, me and be good to me." . - Knowing the superstitions that con cerns drowning persons, the English citizens of Hong Kong marveled greatly at the fact that five Chinamen had been found worthy of medals for saving people from drowning. The Chinese ' popular rule is, if a man is drowning let him drown. ' The accepted belief is that if one drowns it is because the king of all spirits so wills it and has ordained that the soul of , the drowning man shall join the throng on the other side. If the one drowning is "rescued that fact forever damns his prospects for eternity and. what is worse for the rescuer, the king of the spirits Is as likely as not to take his life in pay ment for the one of which he has been cheated. If you are fond of children, and they like you, the busier their mother is the more she enjoys having you around. After the children are grown, the average man has no one who shows any great degree of affection for him until the grandchildren come. Prof. Irving Fisher of Tale is recom mended for profitable reading as th spring lassitude encroaches upon indi vidual energies?- Vegetarians, he con cludes after a series of experiments, are the most gifted with endurance of all men. He proved that vegetarians were able to bear. a strain on a given muscle, for example the strain of hold ing the arm horizontal without support, longer than were meat eaters. Profes sor Langworth of the government bu reau of chemistry adds that the vege tarian Buddhist priests are probably the most intellectual of men. Yet a few dlya the dandelion aud the dock will be with ub. ' A little later the spin ach and lettuce will be at hand. No body who has made a trial denies that to turn from the flesh pots to the herb pans tends to defeat the weariness of spring time, and Professor Fisher for it. it will also sustain the winter energy.

AJ1 . authorities agree that fourteen elements are needed in the human body to sustain perfect health and that these must be supplied in the food taken into the system. Nature has Provided us with on sinirlp artiplo nf food 4 containing all of these fourteen elements in the exact proportions ne cessary to supply, our bodies with vi tality, strength and heat. This food, so wonderful in its composition, is wheat, and intelligent men and women are coming to realize more, and more uwi in me wiiuie 01 uie wjieat 1! found the secret of health and happi ness. Rich in the nitrates, or muscle making elements, the carbonates, or heat-producing elements, and the phosphates, or brain and nerve-making elements, the whole grain of wheat supplies . every necessity for man's body and mind. x This is how Malta-Vita came to be known as "The Perfect Food," for Malta-Vita is simply the whole of the wheat and a little salt, thoroughly steamed and cooked in absolute clean liness, then mixed with pure barley malt extract, which converts the starch of the wheat into maltose, or malt sugar, an active digestive agent and very nutritious as well. All grocers sell Malta-Aita. Large package, now 10 cents. When the summer heat is" over will be time to consider a return to the diet of meat which anti-vegetarians say in necessary ir real spirit and courage are to be added to strength. .
