Journal-Courier Fashions Hints For The Household Matters of Interest to Women THE MORNING JOURNAL-COURIER, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER B, 1908. SOME NIMBLE " FINGER NOTES Inexpensive Serving Apron Useful for the Boarding School Girl. Two yards of corn-colored Bilk will make a neat little one-piece kimono for hound wear. Trim all isdgoa with black braid or Mack lace insertion. If braid Is used the Greek key design will bo neat ai on outline, Some Kim onos of thin description are trimmed w'lth blnck ornaments 1 or Btoncilert with black on border edges. The yel low and black tints are harmonious In anything of an oriental nature. Amateurs will do well to re.memhor that when they are making a blouio that will have the wide kimono sleeve as well rs the under sleeve a fitted lin ing Is necessary. This may be of flna batiste, taffeta, ch)fton taffeta, lawn or any of the silk substitutes, the choice depending; upon the. kind of material which will drape, the lining. Two and one-half yards of lining, thirty Inches wide, will be sulfielent for :v close fit ting "waist and sleeve, one and one quarter yards for the waist alone. Useful and pretty pincushions are made In the shape of an apple and covered with a silk tinted to represent the red and green of the familiar fruit. They are round and rather flat, giving a wide area to hold the pins, and they are stuffed with raw wool, which af fords little resistance and does not pack so tightly as cotton. The strong threads sewn through the center of the cushion makes the depression on each side to represent the core, and all the finishing gathers of the silk are -hidden under the green stem. There Is the nicest little affair which will be' Invaluable to the needlewom an who Is fonl of embroidering dainty designs upon lingerie and house linen It Is the new stiletto, which Is made with a gauge, go that the sle of the eyelet may be regulated. One of the greatest difficulties found In 'eyelet work (which In Itself Is the simplest kind to embroider) Is the art of mak ing the eyelets of uniform size. Thla little Instrument obviates the dlfflcul'y and will be gratefully received by the enthusiastic needlewoman.' y . . - ' All of 'grandmother's blfs of fany work will not be displayed In new and wry httractlve styles, so you want to learn at once the clever cross stitch embroidery work the busy fin gers are now 'making.- The wreath design on rough 'linen cushion covers Is very, handsome, while scroll pieces In the corners of cushions or luncheon cloths are very neat. On a rm!l pin cushion of pale cream linen the bor der edge was made of dep yellow srlkatoen and yellow ribbon run through drawn threads held thehaek and front together over the small muslin cushion. t The convention il block pattern, singly or irroupod, Is a design easily fashioned by the ama teur. Stamped patterns are very cheap. Leather work Is Interesting, and has become quite a fad. although the num erous articles, while pretty, are. very dllfietilt to make,., Quite a novelty Is the picture frame of leather, with a bouquet of leather flowers festooned across the top.- The one ; seen was decorated with .morning glories. They were made by wetting the leather and 1 stretching It to form the. funnel shap ed blossom. Of course, the leaves are not as difficult to manage. A pretty cushion cover Intended f-ir porch use Is made from natural linen, showing the Swastika errtblem (ap pllqued) In a large size. The pretti est shown In a collection sen recent ly was cut from a piece of cretonne; In Persian. coloring, oiitiln id With a couple of .rows of dark red soutache. Other designs used as a decoration for the pale tan ... linen . were fashioned from bright red Turkish twill, black braid in rows, art ticklings and print ed canvas.' There are a few dainty women who have an abhorrence for ribbed an dervesrs, and one,-cleverer than her sisters, has solved the problem. She makes short, low-necked garments on the pattern of a chemise, only in china silk. These have only straps over the shoulders, they are soft, cool and com fortable and they may be tis elabor- It's the Figure, Not the Face, That Attracts Admiration Thn I-A GRECQVE SHEATH CORSETS give tho. classical lines, and' are uduptuhle to the new SHEATH GOWX.

She says thoy wear longer than do the ordinary ribbed shirts and, needless to guy, they are far prettier. A nice sewing apron Is of 10-cent dimity, made with a large deep pock et. It surely Is cheap enough and It needs no ribbon whatever, for vcn thn strings are of the material, so the whole may bo washed together. On one such apron the pocket !s not lust the material turned up at the bottom, but It Is made very full and applied. Around the top a bit of ela.st.lo Is used, so It Is very capacious and, at the some time, It does, not sg so the contents may fall out. SIMPLE CANDLE SHADES New and pretty candle ihades are made In the simplest possible ivay. The frame Is merely two wire circles an umbrella-shaped affair, with no angles whatever. The cover Is a cir cle of cretonne about six Inches blrger In diameter than Is the frame. Around the edge of this cretonne Is sewed a fringe of glass beads, which Is heavy enough to hold down the cover and to cau'so It to fall In graceful folds. An other circle Is cut from the center of the cover Just the size to fit around the frame. The cover Is then fasten ed at the Inside circle to the frame by a binding of gold braid. The mlra shade, of Course, fits on the stand en tirely independently of the candle shade. The great advantage of the shade lies In the fac t that., unlike most of Its kind, It need not be rlt'ed to the frame,, nor are there seams to be fin ished on the under sld-. Head fringe iiiny be bought by the yard and wire frames are extremely Inexpensive. Should handsomer shades than cre tonne be desired, the cover may be of brocaded silk or a heavy silk of a solid light color. The fringe .might then be either gold or silver, while the braid at tho top would, .if course, match It. LIME WATER Llme water can be easily prepared at home In the following manner: put a teacnp of clean unslacked lime In a pitcher and pour over It two quarts of water, stirring until It looks like milk. Let It stand until the water seems quite clear, then pour It off and fill the pitcher again with pure water. If pos. slble use only filtered water. Then stir thoroughly, tie a piece of muslin over the pitcher to prevent dust from fall ing Into 1t and let it stand till the wa ter Is clear. Then carefully decant the: clear portion Into glass-stopppred bottles. The first water can be used in the kitchen for many cleansing pur poses, although many housekeepers are Igrorant of this fact. When the teeth are- soft and sensitive a full tahie spoonful of lime water can bo takn whenever one drinks water or milk. This leaves a smooth taste, In the mouth and Is excellent for sweetening the breath. 'After eating acid fruit, which renders the teeth sensitive-and IS always injurious to the enamel, the mouth should be rinsed out with this lime water. REVIVAL OF TUCKERS The revival of the becoming tuckers for the neck, now known by the inex pressive and vague trms of "frllllngs" has led to a revolution In neckwear. The latest Idea Is to have a stiff, up standing frill of satin or moire silk In the top of the collar. Tn Paris they are wearing a kind of collar made of fat frllllngs of chiffon, tulle or lace, with a colored rlbhon tied around the mid dle, one frill appearing above It, stand ing up, and two below It,, lying down. Thn ribbon Is tied under the left ear In an exaggerated bow, which Is be coming, hut also rather Sflf-eoneoloUs, so that none but really pretty people can afford to wear It, even when It be comes them. It Is essentially the fin ish chosen by a pretty woman who knows how pretty she Is. THE BRIDE'S CHEST Every fall bride will want a box to hold the articles of her trousseau as tr.ey are gathered together. Beautiful boxes of cedar may be purchased for little and are made In a very conveni ent way. Instead of the lid lifting up as did the box of great-grandpa, so long Ago, the front may be dropped down, revealing two drawers to hold the things. The box locks securely and the effect la very neat. ' Park cedar boxes are ornamented with the bride's Initials In German let ters of solid brass placed on the false lid. .

As soon as It has thoroughly boiled, It can be removed and the Jars immediately filled and sealed. . handsomest wo have published, actu ally contains very little work, and the butterfly figure is at once graceful and very handsome when completed, The design is so arranged that the work Is within the ability of any one fa miliar with needle-work, and no one should hesitate to embroider It on ac count of apparent difficulty, as the re verse Is actually tho case. This pat tern Is entirely new, having been de. signed the latter part of August, and we trust It will be thoroughly appre ciated by our readers. Wo suggest the following Ideas for the embroidery: The body of the but terfly may be worked solid, Including the dots In tho wings, ull of which should be pndded. The lines of the wings may bo outlined, and the space between the two outer edges would be very handsome filled In with Trench knots. Of course tho dots all over tho design may bo worked In eyelet, If one prefers. The shndod, parts of tho rib bon should be worked solid and the 1 rest outlined. WHICH ARE YOURS? Blue eyes are said to be the strong est. Wide-open eyes are Indicative of rashness. Small eyes are supposed to Indicate cunning. Side-glancing eyes are always to be distrusted. Brown eyes are said by oculists to be the weakest. The downcast eye has In all ages been typical of mo lesty. , The proper distance between the eji-es is the width of one eye. People of melancholy temperament rarely have clear blue eyes. ROLE OF THE IHlOTirF.R. Most of the Old Maids In Families In Which There Arc Xo Sons. The most eminent novelist have not scrupled to give the mother first place In literature as a matchmaker. They have held that her business tal ent along that line is as brilliant as It Is unscrupulous, and they have pried Into and exposed her various methods, praising or hlamlng them according to their humor. . There Is scarcely an Kngnsn novel writtn that does not convey to the mother some subtle compliment for her prowess at match making. The downger, with half a dozen daughters to marry off, fluttering In the face of the Ineligible like an angry hen. keeping tho younger girls In socks and short frocks till the older ones have secured their prizes In the matrimonial lottery, adroitly planning campaigns, taking the outposts of the m-yt reluctant suitors and finally binding the suitor themselves to her triumphant chariot -wheels, Ik a fa miliar figure to every novel reader. Even In America, where daughters are stippoped to be well aide to look out for themselevs, the mother plays no unimportant part In providing suitable husbands for her progeny. Lacking a mother, the father has usually been considered the beat sub stitute as an advance agent and bus iness manager for a family of daugh ters. We know how cleverly old Lady Kew ridiculed the least eligible of her granddaughter's lovers, and the adroit management of the Biblical Ruth by her mother-.ln-law Is a matter of his tory; but, no onn has ever looked upon the brother as the real sponsor of all the matrimonial projects in his fami ly, yet it Is to his credit that most of his sisters' 'brilliant matches must be put down, whether they acknowledge It or not. There Is nothing even faint ly suggested In-matchmaking In the brother's get-up, He is ostensibly con temptuous of his sister's charms; ha doesn't hesitate to tell her Just what he thinks of her, In season and out of season, and when he Invites Jlmmle Gotrox of Billy' Croesus to spend a week end with him he certainly has ho avowed Intention of making a brother-in-law of him. lie Is the bit of fiction necessary to make the match strike. In the case of the , father or mother there Is no overwhelming anxiety to throw the would-be lovers together. In fact, they can't very well escape each other, They are thrust at: each other at every turn, and a mutual distaste Is, as often as not, ths result. , But with the brother calling down anathema on his ftster's head for being a spoil-sport and making all sorts of plans to sepa rate the pair and keep them apart the result Is quite the' reverse. They will steal opportunities to be together, the fyoor brother- Is looked upon as the natural enemy of all lovers and a lit tle later, if the bride Is Honest enough to acknowledge her Indebtedness, it Is her brother who comes In1 for the big slce of the wedding cake. Most of the old maids come from families In which there are now brothers. Maneuvering mammas they may have had and papas skilled with the lasso, but the lack of a brother to forage innocently for them has doomed -theim to single sullenness all their days. . Therefore If a sonleaa family Is determined to marry off Its 'daughters let it first adopt a brother for .them,, and husbands shall be Speedily added unto them. The broth er In the hniisn Is the lodestone that attracts others of his sex. From his earliest school days, while he runs In at recess with this or that youngster to get a bite of lunch, up to the mo ment when he Is best man at the mar riage' of that youngster with his fav orite sister, he Is the usefulleat mem ber of the household in the match making line, and the sooner he Is rec ognized as such the easier will be his lot and the less anxious will be his parents.

It relieves the pain, but In time destroys the sub stance of the tooth, Leave creosote to expert use. Hangnails are due to excessive dry ness of the skin surrounding the nails. Try rubbing tho base 6f the nail every night with a little good cold cream. That should help to cure them. For summer sore throat, which Is of ten due to the Irritation' of dust, try gargling with a mixture of twenty grains of chlorate of potassium to an ounce of water. A teaspoonful of the potash, to a wlneglassful of watr Is quite a good domestic measure. Ordinary buttermilk Is one of the best cosmetics at this time of the year. The lactic acid In the milk has a most beneficial effect on the skin and causes fading of the little stains due to de composition of the secretion of the skin which are commonly called freckles. Not the least unpleasant, by any means, of the Ills attendant uron a cold Is the uncomfortable, unbecoming cold sore or fever blister. If taken In time Its further development can of ten be stopped by the application of a bit of alum. Moisten this and rub gent ly but thoroughly over the spot. The druggists are now offering an eye wash of boraclc acid and camphor for summer use. It Is excellent for eyes that suffer any strain from light and hent. A few drops of It are put on the eye balls after one has been In the open for any length of time this sum mer. It Is also suggested as a cure for a headache which centers around the nerves of the eyes. If your eyes are weak and are easily tired when reading and sewing, It probably means that your general health Is below par. A nourishing diet and plenty of sleep, combined with ex ercise In the open air are Important. When you must work, rest your eyes occasionally for a few minute, at a time, and always work In a good light In daylight, If possible. It Is necessary at some time or other to use soap upon the skin, but care should be taken to rinse the face up- ward In elenr water. Use only pure soap. The strongly perfumed soaps are too often only a mask for the Impuri ties they contain. The colors used In soaps, especially rose and green, are dangerous to the skin. A pure soap should be of a light mastic color and not transparent. The woman who wants to derive the fullest benefit from her beauty sleep. says a " doctor, win compose ner mini before sinking off Into slumber. She will think pleasant thoughts. Worrying thoughts make furrows In the brow and et lines round the mouth. A little light In a bedroom is a good thing for some people, for It will act cheerfully upon the nerves and drive away night mare. Tired feet cause an almost unendur able pain, yet many suffer from such merely through carelessness In not having the heels of shoes straightened. You know what It is to put on an old pair of shoes that have been cast aside for months, and If the heels are crook ed it Is almost an Impossibility to step In them, yet one will go on for weeks wearing high-heeled shoes that throw the ankles out of place. Burning feet are caused by poor circulation. This can be cured In a short time by plung ing the feet Into moderately hot water, then cold, and applying witch hazel or bag rum. ' , EXCELLENT CEMENT The following cement Is said to stick on anything: Take of clear gum ara ble two ounce, of fine starch one ounce and a half, and of white sugar half an ounce. Reduce the gum arable to powder, and dissolve It In as much water as a laundress would use to ren der one ounce and a half of starch fit for use. Dissolve the starch and sugar In the gum solution Then place the mixture in a vessel ana piunge me ves sel Itself In boiling water, and let It remain there until the starch becomes clear. The cement Bhould be as thick ns tar, and remain so. It can be kept from spoiling by dropping tn a lump of gum camphor, or a little oil of cloves or sassafras. This cement Is said to be very strong Indeed, and will cause glazed surfaces to adhere perfectly. It is useful for repairing specimens of rocks, minerals or fossils that may have been accidentally broken.
