It was demonstrated in a household

at the same time save a consideral;
sum of money. Unironed and sun dried
underwear was recommended as being
both economical and healthful.
There was also a demonstration of
tho money saved by wearing plain
rather than fancy lingerie, which was
based on laundry prices for washing
Two suits were shown of three pieces
each. One was of longcloth, edged with
convent embroidery, the prettiest being
trimmed with plain ruflles only. This
cost ?4.50 and could be laundered once
a week for n j-car at a cost of ?32. The
other was nainsook, made elaborately
and trimmed with lace. It cost $!3.r0,
and the laundry work for the same
time amounted to $S3.
This estimate was made on the ac
tual pieces which had been charged
for doing the Kiiits at a first class laun
dry. As an accurate estimate of the
time spent Is made when grading laun
dry prices, $3 is the equivalent of the
time saved by the laundry on the plain
suit. At home, with fewer facilities
and less expert work, which are most
needed in doing the lace trimmed wear,
the difference in time would be even
Women and Newspaper Work.
A well known western newspaper
woman gives the following bit of ad
vice to an Inquirer who asks about
newspaper work as a profession for a
woman: "It all depends upon whether
you can readily adapt yourself to the
business and whether you have some
natural talent for scribbling. For
those to whom writing is a painful,
laborious task newspaper work is any
thing but pleasant. But if you are
the sort that can write anything at any
time without waiting for a muse to
push you along you will find the work
fascinating In the extreme. There is
much that is drudgery; there is much
that is exhilarating and inspiring. Peo
ple who have been in it for many
years keep up a perpetual growl, but
couldn't possibly be induced to break
away from the jolly world of pot boil
ers.. If you are strong and well, can
stand long hours of work, do not think
you are a glowing genius, don't cry
over every trivial disappointment and
know a little something about spelling
and composition, make a try. Write
something and send it In. .That is the

those who study -the art of dress say
60. These" critics aver that the short
skirted girl must study seriously the
matter of her gait, for it is of far more
moment - than when wearing longer
skirts. The steps should be small and
regular. They say that the Spaniards
attach a ribbon to each garter to keep
their pace even and regular. Be this
taken for what it is worth, there is no
doubt that Spanish ladies have a most
graceful walk and carriage. The
American woman who led off with
short skirts and is wholly responsible
for either adoption will hardly adopt a
method of gear to hamper her steps
and reduce her gait to a "mince." Bui
in this suggestion there is a hint foi

The sun's heat obviously, therefore, is
