demonstration of its own worth, says
the Ladies' Home Journal.
In Findlay, Ohio, the efforts of a
committee from the Woman's Club
were successful in establishing a rest
room in the court-house, which is well

NOW’S THE TIME TO BUY
BARGAIN REMNANTS
This month the shop!? are offering
the most tempting bargains in won
derful brocades, metal nets, lovely
silks and satins, remnants of smart
looking woolens and short lengths of
trimming of all descriptions, and it
is positively amusing to see the way
the most desirable materials are
being snapped up by smartly-dressed
women. ^
Bargain sales have ever been a pro
lific source of inspiration to the pro
fessional humorist, and perhaps oc
casionally the jokes at the expense
of the woman bargain hunter wrho
spends her month's dress allowance
on bits of trimming and material
that are too small to be of any* value
may be deserved, says the Badies'
Home Journal. But this season the
morning shopping frock is so simple
of line, and so narrow that from an
absurdly small quantity of material
one may evolve a really pretty frock.
As for the afternoon and evening
gowns fashion is even more kind, for
she is emphasizing in them the com
bination of twro fabrics, and fre
quently three or more.
So, Mistress Bargain Hunter, you
may buy short lengths of lace and
chiffon, or little bits of braid, or a
yard and a fraction of silk or brocade
with assurance, knowing that later,
in the seclusion of your sewing-room
and with the aid of a good pattern,
you will be able to evolve from these
same bargains a really wearable,
pretty frock.

A CHARMING GOWN OF
CHARMEUSE
The costume illustrated is one of
the most attractive that has been
produced this season. The waist and
skirt were especially designed for
each other, but either can be com
bined with another model. Both waist
and skirt are draped by means of up
ward turning plaits at the centre
front. The waist is made over a
fitted lining and is very simple. There
are front and back poidions and the
sleeves are of the “set-in” sort and
can be finished in either full or elbow
length. The neck is finished with a
fancy collar and revers. In this case
there is a shirred chemisette with a
round neck, but, if preferred, a plain
chemisette with high collar can be
used. The skirt is in two pieces only
and the back forms a panel which
is lapped over the draped edges of
the front. The skirt can be finished
in walking length or with a train.
The material here is charmeuse with
trimming of black velvet, all-over
lace and ermine and the effect is very
charming. Crepe de chine, crepe
meteor and all similar materials are
lovely for these designs, and the
trimming can be varied to suit the
material and the season.
For the medium size the waist will
require !s» yards of material 27, 174
yards 36 or 174 yards 44 with *4 yard
27 for the shirred chemisette, % yard
21 for the collar and 7* yard 18 for
the revers and 274 yards of fur band
ing. to trim as illustrated;' 74 yard
of all-over lace 18 inches wide for the
plain chemisette and stock collar;
the skirt will require 47i yards 27 or
374 yards 36 or 44 inches wide with
the train, or 474 yards 27 or 274 yards
36 or 44 in walking length, with 274
yards of fur banding. The width at
the lower edge Is 2 yards.
The May Manton pattern of the
waist 7709 is cut in sizes from 34 to
40 inches bust measure; of the skirt
7702 from 22 to 30 inches waist meas
ure. They will be mailed to any ad

each.

LAMP SHADES OF
FIGURED CRETONNE
Beautiful lamp shades are being
made from cretonne and chints, and
they are eaay to copy at home. The
wire frame should be wound with rib
bon or tape, either in white or to
match the shade covering. If a panel
frame Is selected the material ahould
be cut by a pattern to fit the panels,
then the panels sewed together and
atretched over the frame. The Em
pire shades are easier to make. The
material may be stretched on plain,
gathered or laid in plaits; the top and
bottom may be finished with braid or
gimp, and a further finish may be
added by fringe at the bottom. A cre
tonne with a broad stripe—say six or
seven Inches—of mixed flowers in
bright colors should be chosen. The
small-figured English chlntses era
also good for both lamp and candle
shade*. One of the new spring fabrics
—a printed tussah allk—would be
charming for an Empire shade. It Is
a soft silk, thirty-alx inches wide,
with a two-inch black border of rich
ly colored roses, daisies, etc., and a
central panel of black. This, mad,
with a two-inch black border at the
top, and a three or four inch black
border at the bottom, would make a
most striking shade. Three-quarters
of a yard would be enough for a four
teen-inch frame.—Eadles' Home Jour

Mixed with Sulphur Makes
Hair Soft, Lustrous and
Cures Dandruff.
The use of Sage and Sulphur for re
storing faded, gray hair to its natural
color dates back to grandmother’s
time. She kept her hair beautifully
darkened, glossy and abundant with
a brew of Sage Tea and Sulphur.
Whenever her hair fell out or took
on that dull, faded or streaked ap
pearance this simple mixture was ap
plied with wonderful effect.
But brewing at home Is mussv and
out-of-date. Nowadays skilled chem
ists do this better than ourselves. By
asking at any drug store for the

have no opportunity to absorb
odors.
LININGS of porcelain or enamel are
the best, such surfaces are smooth,
easily kept clean and do not ab
sorb odors.
MANUFACTURERS have succeeded
in obtaining air-tight, well venti
lated construction: it remains for
the housekeepers to see that there
are no careless leakages.
NEVER allow an ice box to be
washed by simply pouring hot,
soapy water through it; ordinary
soap should never be used in a re
frigerator. Scouring soap and al
kalis for zinc or metal and alkalis
for porcelain linings are alone per
missible.
ONLY eternal vigilance will keep the
most expensive variety In a sani
tary condition, and with such care
the cheapest grade may be satis
factory from the standpoint of
health.
PORCELAIN-LINED refrigerators
can be washed as easily as china,
and while the first cost of such a
box may be greater, their arrange
ment seems nearly perfect for keep
ing food sweet and making ice last.
QUICKLY close the lid of the ice
chamber when fresh ice Is put in,
but open the lower doors until the
ice begins to melt, then shut tight.
REFRIGERATION should not be de
feated by wrapping ice in blankets
or newspaper. Keep the refrigera
tor thoroughly chilled and the ice
itself does not have a chance to
melt.
SANITARY refrigerators provide a
current of dry, cold air: open doors
only when necessary and shut tight
as soon as possible.
THE food should never be put in the
refrigerator while warm as this is
the cause of much refrigerator
trouble in keeping cooked foods.
UNDER no conditions allow cheese
a place in the lc# box. Its strong
odor will be absorbed by other
foods, no matter how good the con
struction of the box, unless under
cover.
VENTILATION Is secured In a good
refrigerator on the principle that
heated air rises; as the air over
the Ice box is chilled It passes
downward, surrounds the food com
partments, rises as it becomes
heated and finds its way out, mak
ing a rapid and continuous cur
rent.
WHEN ants get into the refrigerator
a saucer of tartar emetic mixed
with sugar and water will drive
them away. Some are successful
scouring shelves with hot water
and borax, dry in the sun, springle
thickly with dry borax.
The Refrigerator.
While this does not seem just the
season of the year for refrigerator
advice, still there are many families
in the city who are obliged to keep
the refrigerator in the kitchen and
must take ice winter and summer.
Again, our climate changes so sud
denly from cold to warm and back
again, that it is usually economy to
take the ice, with the lower rate in
the winter months for ice. Especial
ly is this true of milk and butter, as
they are very susceptible to change
of temperature. Ice will not melt as
rapidly as in the summer, so two or
three times a week will probably an
swer for the fall, winter and spring
months for ice.
Some Alphabetical Suggestions.
A REFRIGERATOR ALPHABET.
A WISE choice of refrigerator has
much to do with the satisfaction of
having perfectly-kept food during
any season.
BEWARE of waste pipes connecting
with sewer or plumbing.
CLEAN, scald and cool the drain pipe
and shelves at least once a week.
DO not stand refrigerators in cellars,
no in strong draughts, but in as
light and cool a place as possible.
ECONOMIZE on ice by keeping the
refrigerator filled. You will then
have the benefit of the greatest
cooling capacity of your refrigerator
all the time; otherwise with a little
added every day or every other day
the temperature will never be very
low and things will not keep as well.
FOOD should be carefully looked over
and so far as possible placed in
covered dishes before going into
the ice box.
GERMS are good friends of an ill
kept ice box and must be contin
ually fought.
HOT sal-soda water and soda is ideal
for the weekly scalding.
ICE should be rinsed and carefully
placed in the ice chamber: water in
bottles may be placed here.
JOINTS and hinges must be strong
and reliable: a loosely hung door is
responsible for much waste of Ice.
KEEP butter and milk covered on
the topmost shelf, that they may
SAGE TEA BEAUTIFULLY DARKENS

DOLLS AND DOCS
CLAD IN SWEATERS
The small dog is in line with the
mode now, in a snug and stylish
knitted sweater which ha* little

ordinary dog blanket and a strap

These sweaters come in ordinary

edy”—you will get a large bottle for
about 50 cents. Some druggists make
their own, which is usually too sticky,
so insist upon getting ‘•Wyeth's,”
■which can be depended upon to re
store natural color and beauty to the
hair and is splendid for dandruff,
dry, feverish, itchy scalp and falling
hair.
A well-known downtown druggist
says his customers insist on Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur because, they say,
it darkens so naturally and evenly
that nobody can tell it has been ap
plied—it's so easy to use, too. You
simply dampen a sponge or soft brush
and draw it through your hair, taking
one strand at a time Do this at
night and by morning the gray hair
disappears; after another application
or two it is restored to its natural
color and looks gloeey, soft ajtd
abundant.
Mrs. Cleveland’s Marriage
Dear MU* Dood :
I hope you will be able to
m<* in regard to Mr. and -Mr*. Grover
Cleveland. A Bays they were married
the last year of his first term as Presi
dent and that they ware married in tha
White House, ft says they were married
during the four years between hi* two
terms, and not In the White House.
Which Is correct? PERPLEXED.
Grover Cleveland wan flrat inau
gurated in 1865. Hi* marriage touit
place in the White Houne in 1886.
On Cutting Cuticle
My dear Miss Doou:
I have received some excellent advice
through your column end now no^k you
again. I am in the habit of cutting the
cuticle on my finger nails, and now find
that this making it grow quickly, and
it is coarse and tough. Please advise
what I can do to eliminate tbls'curting?
I had a small pimple on my chin and j
pressed It. The pimple disappeared, but
left an unsightly purple mark. Folks
tell me that I probably injured a vein or(
blood vessel. Will you kindly recom
mend some means of removing this:
mark, if you possibly can? Thanking
you, MARIE H.
It is unwise to cut the cuticle. Soak
the finger-tips in lukewarm -water
until the cuticle Is very soft, then
push it back gently with an orange
wood stick or a fold of linen. E>o this
regularly and after a time there will
be no necessity for cutting. I would
advise consulting a physician about
the purple mark. You may have
caused an infection. In the meantime
bathe It with peroxide of hydrogen.
That Stamp Language
My dear Mias Dona:
Some time ago I asked you \o publish
roy question in your ynluable column.
I have not yet heard from you. I asked
you what tbe positions of stamps put on
letters meant, -I hare received several
letters with the stamps in various posi
tions. ALPHONSINA H.
My dear Alphonsina, I'm sorry to
disappoint you. but I must refuse to
publish that "stamp language." Seri
ously, don't you think it a pretty
cheap sort of sentiment that must
needs express itself in such a silly
way? If a young man considers
that such "flirtation" appeals to you
be sure that he cannot regard you
highly. Attention of that sort is
hardly complimentary.
I want my column to be such that
people will come to it for aid and
counsel, and gain thereby, and can
not afford to jheapen it by publishing
trash.

Wants to Mal^e Friend*
Dear Miss Doon :
I am a stranger in this part of the
country and wish to becom* acquainted
with some nice people. Will you please
tell me bow and where to find ihem? I
hare been attending church, but I find
the people here are very formal. Where
I come from thev are more sociable.
Thanking you in advance,
GLAYDS D.
Give the ‘new acquaintances a little
time. I gather that you are from Ihe
West, and wish you to know that the
hearts of Eastern people are just as
warm as those of their Western
brethren, only they do not find it so
easy to break down the barriers that
lead to friendship. Why not state
your predicament to the wife of the
pastor, or to one of the popular young
girls? I'm sure they would be glad
to help you.
The name of "A. D„” who wanted
plain sewing to do, has been sent to
Mrs. A. M. E. G., who needed a seam
stress, and desired to give "A. D.” an
opportunity. Thus does the column
demonstrate its practical use.
LATER—Four more persons have
been supplied with "A. D s" name
and addiess.
WILLIAM S—Cannot spare the
space for all those names. Could not
publish names and addresses, any- .
way. You will find what you want j
in the American Newspaper Direc-1
tory, in the library. .

Bakers
who have a reputation of
many years' standing are-not
blamed for insisting that
they make better bread than
any baker.
But they are basing their
belief more on pride than on
unprejudiced tests.
All we ask is that any
good home baker order
Snowflake
Bread
and give it a trial on the
table for. say. a week, and
see if it does not measure up
in quality, in texture and in
flavor with any bread ever
baked at home.
Then consider the cost of
time in home baking and de
cide for yourself whether it
pays to bake at home when
such a bread as Snowflake
can be had fresh every day.

THE CHARM OF
ANGORA WOOL;
The great charm of articles knitted
or crocheted of Angora wool lies in
their soft, furry beauty. Vet entire
ly aside from this there is another
charm—the delight which the needle
woman feels when Bhe is able to con
struct in a short time a thing that
bears no evidence of hasty prepara
tion or poor workmanship; for An- |
gora knits up much more quickly
than other wools, because a fine
stitch rarely is used, and a compli
cate! one never, the beauty of the
finished product depending not upon
the stitch, but upon the texture.
