HEMS TO BE WIDE HAVE BECOME IMPORTANT PART OF COSTUME. Are So Made as to Command Instant Attention —Generally In Colors to Match Gown or Dominant Color Note. It *?ems quite trivial to lay stress upon a hem. This is a part of the costume that receives scant attention jtnd usually deserves only what it gets. All this is changed. Everyone, ama teur and expert, will pay marked at tention to the bottom of the skirt from now on. for the hem has risen Into prominence and promises to re ceive a most unusual degree of re epect. Even wraps, long, voluminous satin *nd chiffon things in the purple of •expensive Hamburg grapes (and the ■wraps are expensive) have hems that flare and flaunt themselves Instantly In the eye of the beholder. These hems are not of the expensive grape purple, but of a contrasting color to tax the cleverness of an artist and give the lover of color something new to think about. So far the hems on frocks are of the same color, or they match the domi nant color note in a check or plaid design. It is in the latter combination that one gets every Inch of service out of the hem. Say that the frock is one of those useful, every-hour black and white marquisettes or ninon voiles, which carry these contrasting colors in a subdued way by toning down the spaces in the white. As a rule, these frocks are commonplace if worthy, but the startling new hem brings them out of the “also ran” class and gives them an individual air. This border —for that should be its name — Ss of black satin from eight to twenty inches deep. The color and Idea are repealed in the blouse, where there Is a deep-pointed yoke of satin that ex tends well over the sleeves and is cut to points. Such a hem Is quite plain. It does not need trimming to draw attention to it. It is not braided or embossed or embroidered. The one feature about it that will be called queer is that it is narrower by several Inches than the •skirt to which it is attached. This does and will continue to cause •comment. It's an odd trick that has not been satisfactorily explained by its designers. Like all Adams they put the blame on the Eves. The women wanted it in that fashion is their excuse. Women liave grown happily accustomed to IN THE VERY LATEST STYLE Airship Pin Cushion Surely May Be Described as Thoroughly Up to Date. Whether for use at home or for sale Sn a bazar, there is always something very attractive about a little novelty. In our sketch may be seen a really novel pin-cushion made to represent a miniature airship. The cushion itself Is In the shape of a rather fat cigar, and round either end bands of ribbon are tied, which are finished off with neat little bows, and there Is a long loop of ribbon with a rosette bow at the top. by which the cushion may be hung up. The "car” of the airship consists of a strip of cardboard (covered with the same material that has been chosen for the cushion) scored down the cen ter and bent Into a V shape, and then suspended underneath the cushion •with two straps of ribbon. The dia gram on the right hand side illustrates the shape of the car, and in it hatpins may be placed in the way shown In the sketch. Paint on Lac*. Painted laces, with their colors dif fering in patches, make wonderfully effective and gorgeous trimmings for the oriental looking evening gown. Oil paint* may be mixed with gaso line, or stencil dyes may be used to give the desired colors. The entire pattern of the lace is not brought out In color, but certain of Its motifs are enhanced In value by this shading process. narrowness around the feet, and they Intend to continue the custom. Wide hems are in their waj;. and, though they consented to width or fullness above the shoetops, they wouldn't consent to it below. Now some of these hems are only a yard wide, but it is the experience of all those who deal in clothes, or watch them carefully, that the design ers always exaggerate the new fash ions at their initiation, and then they, or the public, modify them later. The Toilet Table A cloth wrung out of hot vinegar and water and laid on the forehead as hot as can be borne will relieve a headache. The hair is often Improved by heat- | ing the hair brush before brushing; the hair. Frequently hold the brush ; to the fire, then brush the scalp. A home-made lotion that is excel- ; lent for the skins and will prevent premature wrinkles is made by boil i ing 12 tablespoonfuls of pearl barley ! in a quart of water until gluten Is ex tracted. Strain through a flue linen and add to the liquid a teaspoonful of tincture of benzoin. A glass of milk Just before going to bed is highly recommended by physi cians to build up over thin persons who are consequently lacking in vital ity. It has benefited numbers of girls with this trouble of lack of flesh. Local massage, with almond oil or cocoa butter, is also good if applied regularly. A bunion cure is made of one dram each of glycerin, carbolic acid and tincture of iodin. Mix and paint the spot several times dally and at night. It is necesary to wear low heels and broad shoes, that there may be no pressure on the Joint, which should be covered by a corn protector made of a ring of felt. The Bavarian Girdle. One of the belts of the season is the folded girdle of panne velvet which is boned to an excessively long, sharp point in front. The dressma kers have given it the name of the Bavarian girdle or the girdle of Ven ice. It will be worn on dressy afternoon and evening frocks, and will not be separate, but a part of the gown. CANDY FAVORS MUCH LIKED Novelty Has Proved Itself Decidedly Popular for Entertainments of This Season. Another novelty for the table Is candy in the form of very realistic looking bunches of grapes. The grapes, which are the edible part, are mount ed upon an artificial stem, also very natural looking, with green grape leaves attached. Each candy grape Is covered with waved paper, so thin that it is practically invisible. Thl3 keeps the soft candy dust-proof and otherwise intact until it is to be eaten. The grapes come in three shades, rep resenting the malaga. concord and ca tawba varieties. Tied with ribbon in the appropriate shade a bunch would make a charming favor to lay at the cover of each guest, at a woman's luncheon, for instance. Another popular new candy Is known as “squares.” This is in brightly colored transparent cubes about the size of a caramel, and comes in pink, yellow, violet or green. Arranged on a dainty bonbonniere dish the • squares” make a striking addition to the table scheme. Delightful, too, for a children’s par ty or for a luncheon where a marine motif is carried out are taffy candies shaped like tiny cockle shells in dif ferent pale shades. A Good Feature. A feature of the shirred skirt is that it can be let down and fashioned In straight length later on. At present many fear to have a good material made into these skirts, fearing the style will soon change. It may and it may not, that remains to be seen, but the chances are that these skirts will be worn throughout the summer. There are hundreds of modish ways to gather the 6kirt and bold it to the underskirt. It is useless to attempt It with textiles that will not drape grace fully. Candy at Atemoon Tea. The Cunarders serve broken bits of putter scotch candy along with the aft »sracon tea aboard ship. URGES RIGHT LIVING Mrs. John Vance Cheney Leader in New Movement. International League of Right Think ing and Right Living Bays Hap piness Lies in Berving and Helping Others. Chicago.—lt has been said that 150.- 000.000 persons, aside from those con nected with the Christian Science church, are making inquiries or are directly interested in some advanced or New Thought movement. Among the many leaders of Advanced Thought probably no one is better known than Mrs. John Vance Che ney. both through her personal in struction in classes and through her books. A certain minister has said that two books in this line he con siders an invaluable aid to his work, “What It Is That Heals," by Mrs. Cheney, and Dr. Worcester’s “Religion of Medicine.” Recently Mrs. Cheney has estab lished an educational and philanthropic organization known as the Internation al League of Right Thinking and Right Living, and centers have been started in Montclair, Great Barrington, Bing hamton, Toronto, Denver, San Fran cisco and many other places. In explaining the work of the league Mrs. Cheney said: "Our aim Is to reach the dead class of workers who never rise above the sordid conditions of daily drudgery. Our method is to re-educate. Legisla tion or force cannot change or strengthen social or moral conditions, the inspiration must come from with in, so we try to begin at the beginning, following the injunction of Solon, ‘Know thyself,' and we believe that for the first time in history we have de veloped a technique of self-knowledge. We turn the attention of members to Y Jcex Vmre Gnnszr ( A the fact that mind is the power that has done all things, that the dominion it has gained over the elements and external conditions it can gain over itself. "We teach that the source of hap piness is in serving, in helping others. We believe that the greatest help comes from self-knowledge, self-con trol, which enables us to be at our best in our contact with the world. As our members gain this self-knowl edge they go out as teachers and give what they have learned to others who have had fewer opportunities. "In the point of health we recognize and use the powers of the mind to control the soundness of the body; where it is necessary we exercise the power of healing, but all our work is simply a training of the individual in self-knowledge. “It Is along the line of the Emman uel movement, but is more definite in that we have classes meeting several times a week for drill in our principles. We have a printed lesson and publish a magazine. "It is a league of women with an associate membership of men. We be long to the general federation and to the city federation. “Three principles in the technique of self-knowledge must not be omitted: “1. The discovery that the body re sponds to every thought and emotion. “2. The body is transformed in this responsive thought. “3. From the beginning the definite drill and practice in the technique of right thinking brings about the trans formation of a suffering body to s healthy body.” Mrs. Cheney is a magnificent exam ple of her theories. Extraordinary Compliment. The governor of a western state was making inspection of certain state Institutions when he made inquiry as to the progress of a chaplain by him appointed to an Insane asylum. “How is he getting along?" asked the gov ernor, thinking to get an unprejudiced opinion from the official acting as his guide. “Fine’.” exclaimed the man. “His preachin’ is very successful, gov ernor. The idiots enjoy it especially.” Over-Henpecked. Ex-Gov. Pennypacker, discussing at a dinner in Philadelphia the divorce evil, said, with his humorous smile: “Perhaps there would be less di wree if human nature were more per fect. Some women, you know, hen peck the<r husbands. There is. for example, a Bucks county farmer who said the other day that he would cer tainly apply for a divorce, only his wife wouldn’t let him."

Care of Horse’s Feet. If the horse already has defective feet keep them carefully trimmed and shod if necessary. The soft hoof should be shod and reshod every six or eight weeks in winter where the ground is frozen and at all times of the year where the roads are rocked or graveled. By keeping the horse with poor feet properly shod it will do good service without loss of time. But it is best to breed for good feet. DOWNWARD COURSE. Kidney Troubles Grow Worse Every Year. Charles S. Bailey. 808 Locust St. Yankton, S. Dak., says: “I suffered agony from kid ne y complaint and was almost helpless.

AN UP-TO-DATE STOVE Do you realize there is no longer any reason why ynu should use a coal range? Oil is cheaper than coal; it is lighter and easier to handle, and gives an intense heat.
