Scars are mainly the, result of care lass treatment, ancl once formed there are no instructions to be given to the amateur for their removal. A good surgeon will be able at least to restore a moderate amount of sightliness, even though he cannot wholly eradicate the scar. But when a -wound has been re ceived, if it is likely to leave a scar and one cannot strictly adhere to all given rules and advice, it should at once be put under the care of a skillful sur geon. If he is all that is desired, there will he scarcely a mark to tell of the accident unless tbie wound is unusual ly deep. Care must be taken not to draw the edges of the surrounding tis sues out of shape. When the -wound is dressed it positively must be bathed ancl the raw and bleeding edges should be cleansed from all particles of dust and dirt or any foreign matter, says the Brooklyn Eagle. rJhe reason that oily and creamy remedies are useel is that any applica tion that is of a greasy nature soothes the surrounding tender cuticle. Masks and bandages exclude the air and pro tect the wound from drying too quick ly. If this should happen, it may be noticed that the skin becomes dry and shriveled, surely resulting in a scar, however small. If the skin is kept soft and elastic it stands to reason that these disfiguring contractions will to a certain extent lose something of their tension and in that way become less noticeable. Even after the wound v has apparently healed and all band ages may be removed a soothing lo tion should be used quite frequently, about three or four times daily, and plentifully at night, especially if the unfortunate one has received burns upon the face, arms or hands, because upon the exposed parts of the body the scar would "be more noticeable and unsightly. A lotion which is very soothing and may be used for such purpose is com posed of four ounces of filtered rain water or rosewater and one dram of rectified spirits, one dram of tannin and two drams of glycerin. Agitate thoroughly and apply. One will be thoroughly rewarded for patience and persistence in using these applica tions, especially after a severe burn, as then the tissues will have been deprived of their fatty substance by the extreme heat and will need nour ishment.

If you have old rush bottom or cane seated chairs and do not want to go to the expense of having them recaned try making a seat for them at home. Cut away carefully the can ing and nail strips of girthing tightly across the opening. Cover with a piece of fine fiber matting or burlap, just the shape of the seat, but a half inch larger.

HOPE OF TH E TOILER. Trades Unionism the Force on Which He Relies For- Freedom. President Gomperfs. in his report to the twenty-ninth mutual convention of the wYmerlcan Federation of I-abor nmonj other things said: "In this labor mo-veniet't we gather as the representatives s and by direction of our organized fel low workers, and it is upon the labor xioveiuent that the toilers and the lovers of human free dom have set their hearts and hopes. They realize that the trades union movement of America is the historic ally developed potential force -which bears the brunt and scars of battle and which makes sacrifices for right and justice for all Cor all time. There is not a wrong against which Ave fail to protest or seek tzo remedy; there is not a, right to whi2h any of our fel lows are entitled vbich it is not our duty, mission and work and struggle to attain. So longr as there shall re main a wrong unrihted or a right, de nied there will be simple work for the labor movement to do. The struggle through the ages txas always been at tended with brutal, tyranny and cruel injustice. Some hiave always had to suffer that the people might obtain some modicum of freedom. The times in which we now I ive are no exception to that rule. They are true to their fellows, true to themselves, cannot and dare? not evade the duties and respon sibilities which m iiy come from their advocacy of the co.use of the people. "Tyranny, exercised by no matter whom or from w hat source, must be resisted at all hazards. The labor movement, which is the defender, pro tector and promoter of the rights and interests of the people, must be car ried, forward, its rapacious, ignorant opponents to the contrary notwith standing. We should not and we must not surrender tLie rights -which we have achieved for- the toilers. We dare not permit the w orkers to become the victims of the teider mercies of their exploiters." Grangers ct With Labor. The national grange recently in ses sion in Des Moiies, la., placed itself on record in several matters in such manner as to iizxsure its co-operation with organized lsabor in efforts for at tainment of seve- a-al purposes. Resolu tions were adopted favoring woman suffrage, parcels post, postal savings banks and certa in amendments of the interstate connra.erce law. Organized labor is Hat for xoarcels post and postal savings banks and directly in some in stances and by implication in the re mainder iii favor of woman suffrage. AJble leaders of organized labor and of farmer movements, of which the grange is the liief, are Ivorking to unite these two bodies, not so much ty establishing actual combination or even affiliation as by designating cer tain things which both shall simulta neously strive t o attain. , TRAVELERS GUIDE.
