Housework and Beauty There is nothing like housework for physical culture. In the various ac tions performed by the different sets of muscles during the large numher of movements incidental to house work we have an admirable system of gymnastics peculiarly adapted to the needs of women. A certain amount of exercise which arouses and Inter ests the mental faculties, while oc cupying the activities of the bodily organs, is necessary to health, and housework undoubtedly complies with both of these conditions. Summer Predictions Lace will be the fabric chosen for the fashionable gowns as soon as June comes in. The long tunic will give way to the single skirt. The bodice will become narrower. Gowns will fasten up the front. Darts will appear and seams will he strongly marked in the back of blouses. The "sloppy” style will disappear. Hats will have bandeaux again. The hair will be lifted from the face entirely. The ears will show. Skirts will be shorter and white stockings will come into vogue. Nosey Neighbors.

Another good thing- about babies is that thev never go around telling the smart things their daddies said.—Gal veston News. (Copyright, Newark Daily Ac It is doubtful if the wildest West ever saw wilder Indians than the ones that disported themselves so fearlessly in the back yard of the Brown house. Scalps were collected at an ap palling rate, and hung with chill ing, thrilling calmness at the belts of Heap Big Chief Davie-Not Afraid and the mighty warrior, ii'.lly-Afraid-of-Nothing, while their squaws, Laughing Water Dorothy and Dancing Sunshine Mary Eliza beth, sat in the shadow of their tents, hugged their knees and ignored the conflict with the calm all squaws are supposed to show while their braves are in battle.

That a woman is assistant judge in the Denver Juvenile Court, a deputy probate judge in Kansas and justice of the peace in Illinois, Missouri and Wyoming? That in various States, women are serving »e aldermen, sheriff and as judges and clerks of election? it may be noted that nothing but black hats and toques are bo be seen at present. Indeed, fashionably dressed women have almost the ap pearance of being in uniform owing to this unanimous choice of black for the color of their hate. Shiny black straws, trimmed with ribbons, aigrettes, roses and shiny leaves, in black, are particularly smart. This vogue will, like so many others, have but a short existence, and the first taste of summer weather will probably cause gayer colors to bo worn. The Latest Color.

And he gave the imag inary scalps at his belt a triumph ant pat. "How many did you kill, Davie—I mean chief?” Chief Davie-Not-Afraid frowned, "Chief Davie-Not-Afraid killed many; took many scalps; too many to count," said he in the slow, dig nified tones that best became a chief. Laughing Water Dorothy giggled. "Tour tent'll be dowrn on your head in a' minute,” said phe, at which Chief Davie dropped his dig nity and hastened to fix it. If you looked closely at that tent you could see that it was made of an old horse blanket, drain'd partly over the grape arbor and partly over the clothesline. The girls watched Davie tighten the blanket, and then they jumped up, declaring that they were tired of playing Indian, and that they didn’t want even to shoot the boys’ bow’s and arrows. "What do we care," said Davie; "we’ll play, just the same, w’ont we, Billy?" Billy frowned. "You never call me by my Indian name,” he said, "and I don’t want to play ’count o’ that.” "It’s too much like mine,” grum bled Davie, “and I don’t like it. Mine’s Not-Afraid and yours is Afraid - of - Nothing, and you wouldn’t have it anything else." “Well, I wanted a good one, too. didn't I?" Billy stood up, took off his coat, turned it right side out and put it on again. Inside out . the coat was sun»oscri to be a war rior’s garment of leather and beads. Billy also removed the long feather from his cap. "I'm not going to play,” said Billy. “Neither am I, then," cried Davie, removing his coat and turning it right side out. Mary Elizabeth laughed. “O’ course you’re not, when there’s no body left to play with," she cried; “we’ll have to think up a new game." “Yes," said Dorothy, “a quiet one. I’m tired of Indian W’ars and scalps and whoops.” She thought for a moment, then said: “Let's sit on the step and ask riddles." “Riddles! Riddles. I love 'em," cried Mary Elizabeth with enthusi asm; “we'll take turns asking. You begin, Dorothy, and don't have them too hard right at the begin ning.” “I know one,” cut in Billy; “what makee more noise than a pig under a gate? Two pigs. Isn’t that a good one?" Even Davie laughed at that, “You told the answer, too,” he jeered; “that Isn’t the w’ay to ask riddles. You make people guess them!” Billy looked glum. “That’s the only one I know, too,” he mourned. But Dorothy de clared that if he’d be good she'd teach him a great many. So, after a smile had found its way to Davie's face, she began: "Round as a biscuit, Busy as a bee. Something in the middle Goes ticlcety-tee.” Guess what it is,” said Dorothy, and the others began to think with all their might. “There’s nothing does that," said Davie at last. “You were to begin with an easy one,” declared Mary Elizabeth, “and that’s a very hard one. Dorothy." "It's a boat,’ cried Billy, “in the lake.’ "Nope,” said Dorothy. And then they all fell to guessing again. At last Mary Elizabeth said, "I give it up.” Then Davie said "I give it up." And Billy chimed 'll! “I give it up.” “Very well, then,” announced Dorothy; "I’ll have to tell you. “Round as a biscuit. Busy as a bee, Something in the middle Goes tickety-tee."

FORGIVE AND FORGET BY DANIEL B. McKENNEY (Continued from Yesterday.) Tommy asked no more questions. For a project had suddenly occurred to him which he did not wish his grandmother to suspect. Why should his mother be obliged to work when she had a son whose duty it was to take care of her? He was past fifteen and as strong as most men. More over, he had made such good use of his schooling that he could now read, write and cipher tolerably well. Surely, there must be many ways be sides farming by which a bright, am bitious boy could earn money, and he | felt that he had no right to continue living with his grandparents when his mother needed him. So he resolved to Join her at the first opportunity. Two days later, Tommy arose be fore sunrise, did the chores us usual, and, taking his dog with him, started for Cundy’s Harbor. It was the day when Wat Smith’s schooner made its weekly voyage to Portland with freight. He had already arranged with the skipper for his passage, agreeing to pay him when he reached Portlund and had disposed of two barrels of clams he had dug for that purpose. The schooner was to start at s o’clock, and as It was only half past seven when the boy reached the wharf, he sat down In the skipper's cabin and wrote the following fare well letter to his grandparents: Dear Grandpa and Grandma. My mother needs me and I have gone to Portland to help her. It is a boy's duty to help his mother, don’t you think so? I would have told you of my plan, but I was afraid you would not approve of It. That is why I left without bidding you good-by. God bless you both for all your kindness to me. Your loving grandson. TOMMY. He took this letter to the store to be delivered to his grandfather when he called there in the evening, and, returning to the vessel, concealed himself and Watch in the cabin until she cast loose from the whurf. Nor did he venture upon deck until the schooner stopped at Orr’s Island to take on more freight. All that day she stopped at other places along the coast, adding to her cargo, and at nightfall finally started for her des tination. _ (To be continued.) I j The Midnight Walker It was about 7 o’clock one cold, stormy winter’s evening that Helen Chase walked sadly down the nar row, poorly-lighted streets. Little Helen was made an orphan when her father, who was her best and only living friend, died four days before her midnight walk. The reason for the night walk happened this way: She was sitting in the room her father occupied (while alive) when her step mother came to her with a very wicked look :n her eyes „ The reason which caused the step mother to hear so much hatred toward Helen was that she was great ly superior in beauty, health and in telligence to her own haughty, over bearing daughter. She approached the orphan and, laying her hand roughly on Helen’s long, beautiful llaxen curls, told her that she did not Intend to be living in that house more than a week and that she (Helen), who was not wanted there, would have to go now. Helen begged her stepmother not to send her out In the cold snow and without any place to lay her head for the night. But it was useless for her to beg, for her stepmother interrupted her pleadings by telling her that if she was not out of the house in a half hour she would be obliged to throw her out. Helen then went to her room and putting on her black coat and hat (the material of which was very cheap and therefore of very poor quality) was forced to leave her once happy home. _ As she walked along trying to col lect her shattered thoughts she did not notice that the streets had been for iiuite a few hours very lonely and vacant, l’oor little orphan! She did not think of or hear a clock some place in the village strike the hour of midnight. It was about fifteen minutes after twelve when suddenly she was aroused by the sound of voices com ing from the sidewalk directly in front of her. She could not run, for already the people had seen her. As they drew nearer Helen saw that the party consisted of three men (work ing men, it seemed, for they carried dinner pails on their arms); they were greatly surprised at seeing a child of thirteen out at that hour, and one of them, a gentleman about twenty three, broke the silence by asking the child gently where she was going, and before she could answer he told her that she must let them take her home. Sadly she told them she had no home; that she had lost it that eve ning. The young gentleman was touched when told this, and told Helen she could find shelter in his mother’s home, although it was a very poor one. Helen gladly consented and reached his home in about ten minutes. His mother tried to make Helen as cheerful as possible, and after giving her some supper led her to a little room in which there was a small bed. (To be continued). The Storyteller There was a lion who was king of animals. He wanted something to amuse him. He wanted a story teller telling stories, each one better than the other. The animals were afraid, but the fox said, “Tell him the story-teller is here." “Well,” said the king, “are you ready?” “Yes," said the fox. "Once upon a time there was a fish erman. Ono day while fishing his net broke. One fish escaped and so on. 'I have a mind to eat you up,’ said the king. ‘Isn’t one ilsli better than the Other? You got to keep your prom ise.’ ‘All right,’ said the king, ‘but the next time I won’t.’ ” MARGARET RITTER. 525 South Orange avenue. The Story of Cuff Cuff was a churn dog who lived in New York. His master was a dairy farmer and needed Cuff's help. Cuff worked half a day, and after his long day of hard work he would have the afternoon oft to sleep or run around. One day as Cuff waa lying on the porch blinking in the sunshine he saw a woodchuck on the hill. He re membered his younger days when he used to have a good meal of wood chuck on the hill. Ho went after the woodchuck, having forgotten the stiffness of his legs. Ho could not run fast with stiff legs, so tho wood chuck had a chaneo to see him'com ing. So he flew away and Cuff thought it was only a Joke. EVELYN. I I The Reward of Kindness » A little girl lived on a side street. Her name was Jane.

I For Mothers Many mothers are at a loss to know what to do with baby from ten months on; he is just trying to tod dle and is up to all sorts of mischief. This idea may appeal to some: Pro cure a strong box of white wood about two feet high and two feet long, pad the edges with some felt to keep the little one from injury and lay a double piece inside. Put baby in with a few toys, and he wdll amuse himself for a considerable time while mother goes about her house duties without the worry and fear of baby getting into mischief. A belt is a very good thing to fas ten round baby, with a few holes pierced and some colored ribbons threaded through. The Various small toys may be sown or tied to these. The little one will always have them with him, and so save mother many steps running to pick them up each time’ they fall out of baby fingers. Cleaning a Corduroy Hat Dear Margery Doon: I have a white corduroy hat which is soiled from wear and would like to know how to clean It. Thank ing you, MOLDIE G. White corduroy of good quality may be washed with white soap and warm water with excellent results. Do not rub the soap directly on the hat. Make a good lather. Rinse well. If you are afraid to try this give the hat a gasoline bath. Det it soak in a pall of the fluid for about fif teen minutes, rubbing the soiled parts with the hands. Rinse in clean gasoline and hang in the air to dry. Do not use gasoline in a warm room, or near a Are, or even where there/ is a lighted gas Jet. It is highly in flammable. Anna S.

It follows; I'LL BE ALL SMILES TONIGHT, LOVE. I'll deck my brow with roses, for loved ones will be there; And the gems that others gave ms I’ll wear within my hair. And even those that know me will think my heart is light. Though my heart shall break to morrow. I'll be all smiles tonight. Chorus: I’ll be all smiles tonight, love; I’ll be all smiles tonight; Though my heart shall break to morrow, I’ll bo all smiles tonight. And when the dance commences, oh, how I will rejoice! I’ll sing the songs he taught me ' without a faltering.voice, And flatterers gathered ’round me will think my hgprt is light. • Though my heart shall break to morrow, I’ll be all smiles tonight. And when the room he enters, with the bride upon his arm, I’ll stop to gaze upon her as though she wore a charm And if he smiles upon her as oft he smiled on me They’ll know not what I suffer; they’ll find no change in me. And when the dance is over, and all have gone to rest. I’ll pray for him, dear mother, the one that I love best; For once he loved me true, dear. but now he’s cold and f strange; , He said he’d ne’er deceive me. False friends have wrought the change.

A Coated Tea Kettle Dear Margery Doon: Will you please tell me how to re move a coating from the inside of my tea kettle? It looks like a coat ing of lime. Thanking you. J. K. Fill the kettle with water, add a largo piece of sal-soda and let the ■ water boil for an hour. Wash the soda solution out and the kettle should be clean. It is a good idea to keep a clean oyster shell in the bottom of the kettle. Much of the limestone will fasten itself to the shell. When it becomes heavy throw it away and * put in a new one. Curtain Fixtures The marked change In hanging cur tains, whether of lace or chintz ot other heavier stuffs, necessitates spe cial fixtures, and preference is for those that do not show at all. The best fixtures are slim, steel rods - rounding at the ends to return, as architects say, the curtains to the wall. These rods are made with one bar for the lace curtain, a second for the draperies, and a third for the valance, if there is to be a valance. — .— ■ 1 -a
