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.
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

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
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
Your loving grandson.
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

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
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
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
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
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
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
Sadly she told them she had no
home; that she had lost it that eve
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
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.

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 king, “are you ready?” “Yes,"
said the fox.

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.

“All Smiles Tonight, Love”
Thanks, several of my good
friends, for copies of the old senti
mental song, *T11 Be All Smiles To
night, Love,” which was recently re
quested. It follows;
I'LL BE ALL SMILES TONIGHT,
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
I'll be all smiles tonight.
I’ll be all smiles tonight, love;
I’ll be all smiles tonight;
Though my heart shall break to
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
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
He said he’d ne’er deceive me.

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.
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.
