The carnival fetes can and do ccst anything from 10,000, the minimum, to 16.000 or 18,000. Last year the latter sum was reached and nearly 2,000 went In prizes Apart from the coveted fun and distinction and the fact of their names as winners be ing in the papers, the working men who make these cam themselves must be recouped for their outlay.

I have known young women Intensely Inter ested In athletics In schools or col leges to drop every form of exercise as soon ns they marry. Then they wonder why they do not feel as young In spirit us before their mar riage" If you would remain young and at tractive, keep alert. Cultivate varied nnd ever varying Interests. Hprend out In as many dl- j rectlons mentally as possible. Keop above the plane of ordinariness Hobbles and fnds are good mental tonics The home woman needs a hobby even more than the business or professional woman For there Is a monotony about housework which, If not relieved with the cultivation of outside Interests, may result In the loss of a capacity for happiness nnd in the appearance of tho "all wurk and no play" wrinkles. Be bright, therefore, and the very warmth of your Bunny nature will prevent the chill of neglect from be ing felt In your home.
