Information That Should Interest
Every Woman at the Be
ginning: of the Fall
HERE comes the fall descending
upon you, and, in spite of
every warning and lecture,
you have acquired your fall
cold or will soon do so. The good
people who write and read long dis
cussions upon the prevention of colds
must feel discouraged. They preach
year in and year out. and the colds
go sneezing and coughing on as
cheerfully and uninterruptedl}' as ever
before, quite as in the days before
hygiene was made a science for the
Study of every primary school child.
Yoti wouldn't feel quite at home
without your colds. You would con
sider yourself abused if you could not
get your shoos wet as often as was
pleasant* and sit in the wet shoes af
terwards. You would feel injured if
anybody made you put on long
sleeved underwear just because the
weather had turned crisp. You must
have the privilege of sitting in a
strong draught to rest when tired and
overheated. There's as much use in
telling you how to ward off colds as
there is in telling you how to avoid
Cupid"> arrows. All thai you want to
know is, how to be pretty now that
the cold is upon you and you arc red
eyed and red-nosed and rusty in the
In the first place, now that the cold
is upon you, it is just as well to take
precautions while you are in a docile
mood. Even though the horse is out,
there is no reason for not locking the
barn dour. It is a very easy matter
to prolong the cold now that it has
gained a foothold.
Within the first twenty-four hours
almost any cold can be broken up if
you give yourself over entirely to the
business of doing so. After this time
it is usually impossible to do more
than modify it. If you have the op
portunity to seize it in time, go to
a Turkish bath or take the best sub
stitute you can at home. The bath in
it her case will be worse than none
t you do not go to bed immediately
afterward and stay there, muffled and
perspiring, for a long sleep.
If you take the bath in your own
tub, make it as hot as you can com
fortably endure, have a big tumbler
of hot and strong lemonade ready to
bolt at the end, and jump into bed be
fore an}- chill can strike you. P>c sure
that every possible draught is ex
cluded from your bedroom. In the

But if the cold has settled down an-1

and prevent the distressing symptom:,
from writing themselves all over your
If the cold settles in the head, stop
ping the nasal passages, you must
take steps to relieve the inflammation,
otherwise you will be caught breath
ing through your mouth, and nothing
could possibly be more disastrous to
good looks. Simple vaseline works
like a charn in this matter. Rub the
upper part and sides of the nose with
it, including the space between the
eyebrows, the forehead just abov •
them, and the temples. Rub hard and
make the skin absorb all the vaseline
it will. In doing this at night you
may leave the vaseline on the skin.
which will absorb more of it during
the night, and it is well to leave it 0:1
as often as you are not to appear in
public immediately afterward. If it
must be removed, bathe it off with
warm water. Dust on a little powder
to remove the oily look. Repeat the
process as often as the nasal stopping
recurs. At the same time, gently rub
a little vaseline on the inside of the
nostrils as far as you can reach, and
snuff it up further. It allays the in
flammation and soothes the smarting
which often occurs.
There is usually much chapping of
the lips and outer edge of the nos
trils. Nothing is better for this than
the old-fashioned camphor ice. Buy
it of a reliable druggist, scrape off a
bit with the finger nail, soften it over
the gas and apply it to the chapped
skin at night.
From beginning to end sec to it that
the system is kept thoroughly cleans
ed. On this depends the hastening of
the cold and the salvation of the com
plexion. There is a great tendency
toward clogging of the pores. Eat
fruit, either stewed or fresh, drink
hot water before breakfast, and re
sort to medicine if absolutely neces
sary. Give the face a warm bath every
night to cleanse the pores, rub it af
terwards with a coarse towel. Rub in
cold cream, a? much as the skin will
take, wiping off all that is left outside.
Avoid powder as much as you can
during the cold, for it has an inclina
tion to clog the pores when they arc
not acting well of themselves. But
above all, keep the system clear.
Lemonade will be of great benefit,
pears are good, prunes are excellent.
Exercise mildly each morning, but
only to keep the system in working
order, not in a way to be tiring or to
induce overheating. In general, rest
as much as you can during the sick
ness, for all the vitality that can be
saved is yours to fight the cold with.
Perhaps you are a victim of fever
blisters, the unbecoming malady
known as cold sores. They are a
trial to any woman's vanity. They
cannot even be covered by an old
time beauty patch. But one need not
suffer from them long. Usually pow
dered borax will- drive them away in
haste; moisten the surface of the blis
ter so that the powder will adhere,
then plaster it on and keep it there
as long as you are not on dress pa
rade. If the blister is obstinate, try
this lotion: y 2 ounce ointment rose
water, 5 grains camphor, $£ dram sub
nitrate bismuth, l/z dram powdered
If your eyes are at all weak they
probably succumb to a cold at its first
announcement, and the most expres
sive orbs lose all their beauty under
! such circumstances. They turn red,
the lids become swollen, there is a
general "weepincss"' about them. Be
very careful of them for a few days.
Serious eye troubles have often re
sulted from using them during a
period of irritation. With other parts
of the body it is different. They can
put up with a strain and recuperate
later on when they have a chance.
But the eyes are unforgiving; they
never forget an injury and often pay
you back severely later on.
There is no better wash to reduce
the inflammation and banish redness
of eyelids than a mixture of 2 ounces
camphor water and 2 grains borax.
To bathe the eye balls and lids both
thoroughly there is no means to com
pare with the eyecup. It is a tiny
tumbler, to be had of any druggist, and
costs but io cents. Half fill it with
the wash, :idd a very little hot water,
just enough to take the chill off the
mixture and so make it comfortable.
i then fit the cup over the eye, throw
the head back and open the eye wide.
You will Eoon learn to do this with
out any blinking and starting.
The hair is likely to suffer from the
fever which a cold induces. At the
end of the time you may find it falling
and dandruff starting. Daily massage
of the scalp with a few applications
of vaseline during the period of the
coW will allay the inllamination.
Tf the cold* settles in the limb,
j causing aching and stiffness, get some
tine to give you a good, vigorous rub
bing with alcohol or spirits of cam
phor. After the rubbing go to bed at
I once and cover warmly.

The Strange Career
of Prince Khilkoff
&'- — ■— ' . N\ . ■ a
Prince Khilkoff, the Czar's Minister
of Public Works and Railways, who
has charge of the transportation of
Russian troops to the seat of war in
Manchuria, is a man of remarkable
ability. lie has had an interesting
career, and niie very unusual for a
Russian statesman. His father was
a wealthy and powerful nobleman, but
Khilkoff quarreled with him when he
was twenty years old and left home,
declaring that he would never accept
another kopeck from the paternal
The young nobleman, who had been
used to the luxurious life of the Rus
: ian court, worked his way across
the Atlantic and landed in Philadel
phia, almost destitute. He promptly
went to work at anything he could
find to do, "from slinging hash to
running a locomotive," as one of his
numerous American frienus said.
At last he got a position in a large
machine shop in Philadelphia, his
first job being to make steel bolts.
He worked his way up until he be
came manager of the concern, and
before he left America he learned the
railroad business from start to finish,
from oiling a truck to managing a sys
tem. At one time he ran a locomotive
on the Pennsylvania Railroad.
After he had become a successful
man, he went back to Russia, entered
the Czar's service, and rose rapidly
to his present position through his
knowledge of railroading.
When the Trans-Siberian line was
decided upon, he revisited the United
States to examine American railway
systems again and see what fresh
hints he could gather. If he had had
his way, the line would certainly have
been better built than it is. He de
vised the plan of carrying trains
across Lake Baikal on steam ferries,
after the American style, which had
never been thought of in Russia be
How America's Celebrities Are Dis
According to the biographical die- '
tionartes of America, the State of New
York leads in celebrities. Of the 14.
--500 men and women whose names are
included in one of the leading diction
aries, 2,640 were born in the Empire
State and 3.675 live within its boun
daries. Massachusetts was the birth
place of T,421 and is the residence of
r.207, while 1.278 first saw the light of
•'ay in Pennsylvania, and 1,100 have
their homes therein.
Alaska. Montana. Oklahoma, Idaho
and Wyoming have not produced any
well-known men. according to this au
thority, but seven have taken up their
abode in the far northern territory, 29
in Idaho, 42 in Montana, 30 in Okla
homa and 25 in Wyoming.
On the other hand the Philippines
have given the country two celebrities,
and twenty now labor there.
The Poetical Farmers of Korea.

"The Mottled Jade Wave." When
ripe- "The Yellow Gold Wave." When

THE harbor of Wonsan, Korea,
the northern arm of which is
Port Lazaroff, has an area of
forty square miles, a depth
of from six to twelve fathoms, and
could accommodate the navies of the
world. In this harbor is Deer Island,
which Russia desired to share with
Japan as a coaling station, and a few
years ago was a burning question.
Wonsan is a treaty port, a neat, trim
town on its Japanese side, of about
15.000 inhabitants. But immediately
back of Wonsan is a fringe, of high
hills which retire into an almost im
penetrable tangle of peak--, and wind
ing valleys. In these the Tatong river
rises, cutting across the land until it
empties into the Yellow Sea, and wa
tering one of the most fertile re
gions of^ Korea.
Otherwise the treaty ports, with the
exception of Fusan, are on the Yellow
Sea. The treaty ports imply the
most practicable harbors. Fusan is on
the straits, and has been in the pos
session of Japan since 1592. It is a
typical Japanese town of about fifteen
hours by sea from Chemulpo, the port
of Seoul, and 350 miles from Seoul
by land.
The sea voyage is through a danger
ous archipelago that skirts the west
ern coast of Korea. The islands are
frequently by precipitous bluffs, and
others in the hifih tide of the coast
are often concealed. Fogs and mists
make the journey very dangerous. On
the other hand, the mirage, such as
we saw from the "Gonka Maru,"
makes the sight one of a lifetime.
Glowing in the distance apparently
were cloud-capped palaces and tow
ers, opaline tinted, and curiously in
superimposed pairs. These dissolved
as we approached into islands, and
others took their place. It was the
prolonged phantasmagoria of a dream.
The harbor of Chemulpo is for the
most part a mud flat. Steamers lie a
mile from shore transferring cargo
and passengers by sampan, while men
of war must lie in the outer harbor.
Into the sea at Chemulpo empties the
River Han, on which, fifty-seven miles
from the mouth of Seoul, the capital
of Korea is situated. The Han is
navigable 135 miles above Seoul, but
is traversed by crazy little steamers,
and impossible to steamers of any
draught owing to the shallow harbor.
Over land the distance from Che
mulpo to Seoul is but twenty-seven
miles. Until the building of the rail
way a couple of years ago there was
only a tortuous foot path, and the
necessity of crossing the river three
The other new treat}' port is Chin
natnpo. This is a town at the mouth
of the Tatong river, ten miles from
Ping Yang. Here in the fifteenth and
sixteenth centuries the Japanese and
Koreans fought those bloody contests,
the last of which ravished Korea of all
its arts.
Under the walls of Ping Yang, it
may be mentioned, the "General
Sherman" was burned, and its men
killed. This was a sort of privateer
ing' enterprise, which, however, this
country was obliged to retaliate for by
destroying the forts on the Han.
Ping Yang has other distinctions.
Here, when Methusaleh was in arms
came Dan Konm, Son of Heaven, and
set up his dynasty. Then,came Ki-ju.
the great statesman and first single
taxer, who settled the land question,
and brought prosperity to all the
country. Ki-ju is buried at Ping
Yang, and his tomb is an object of
veneration. Ping Yang moreover is
at the foot of the Tatong river, and
the depot of its commerce. Vessel?

OXF. of the privileges of the
King of Siam which none of
his subjects may share is to
keep in his employ a corps
of dancing girls who trip the light
fantastic toe before His Majesty when
he is wean- of the affairs of State
and would be amused. These girls
must not only be able to dance many
intricate steps with grace and spright
liness, but must also be able to sing
songs to accompany the dances. Can
didates for admission to the royal
corps of dancers begin their education
when they are five years old, being
at that early age put in charge of
dancing masters and singing teachers,
who keep them steadily at work for
years, until they become the most sup
ple and lissome little singing creatures
In the school where the)- are train
ed there is a gymnasium, where they
pass much time in various exercises
calculated to make their limbs and
bodies flexible and strong. One of
the exercises consists of bending over
and picking up a straw from the floor
with the eyelids. Not all the girls can
do this, it being a task possible only
to the youngest and most supple
among them. Beginning training at
the age of live, when a girl is fifteen
she is thought fit to dance before
the King and joins the older dancers.
A girl of fifteen in Siam is like a girl
of seventeen in this country in de
velopment. After joining the regular
dancing corps the girl must still con
tinue her gymnasium practice, so that
she will preserve her suppleness and,
more than all, so that she will not get
stout. A fat dancing girl is a horror
upon which the King would not look,
so the girls have to be careful and not
eat too much, as well as persevere in
their athletic exercise?. The favorite
dance of the King is the "cup dance."
which is performed by the youngest
of the dancers or by the little girl>
undergoing instruction.
In a great hall, splendid with carv
ing and rich with gilding, a class of
little girls from the dancing school
will take station on the marble floor
with the King and his court seated
around. The girls are gaily dressed
in embroidered muslins of various
colors-—pink, blue, white and yellow—
and wear many ornaments of gold and
silver, or else are covered with flow
ers of a tropic sort. The music strikes
up, a slow measure at first, and each
girl places a cup of jade, malachite,
amber or some precious material filled
j Prickly Heat, Chafing and Sunburn j
with water upon her head. Tlk-:
music quickens, and. moving t
rhythm, the girls begin to dance, all
the time bearing the full cups of v
on their heads and not spilling a drop.
At one part of the dance the chil
all kneel down facing the King
folding their hands, bow until I
foreheads touch the marble Boor,
keeping the cups upright rheantim
sending them back upon their hi
with a series of little jerk- of the i
skillfully executed. As they
