One of the taking developments of the present season, where decoration is concerned, is the fancy for spotted borders to plain materials. On all sides' we bare seen, and are destined to see, this form of ornamentation, and very charming is it in its simplicity, especially so after the almost bewilder-1 ing mass of tucks and insertion, braids ; and ' buttons, which' has been prone to ' crowd into tna first place. The design is well adapted for serge for instance, blue with a blue or red and white spotted border. plaited designs. The box plaits are ar ranged at intervals all round, one straight down the front and one either side of the back, where they touch, the 1 placket hole being placed between them and securely fastened with hooks and eyesj There is no reason, however, 'why this necessary but sometimes 'treacherous adjunct should not, be more conveniently arranged beneath 'the first box plait on the' left side. .underneath a plait and are thus per fectly invislblB in the finished skirt, HvhUe they most sfcititally fit the figure from the hips to the waist without the .did of darts. The plaits, after they Are pressed down, are finally stitched at the edges. The border, which 1 simply a strip cut on the cross four Inches wide, is iu UU) rsu or suicuea mx. tua DOttom, .turned op and lightly run down by hand at the top, the edge here being afterward finished by a coarse feather stitch In either purse silk or flax thread, ' as desired, ' ' ' The pretty bodice is also laid in box "plaits, one down the center and one CARE OF FERNS How These Plant May Be Made ; to Thrive. -. '. , ' Contrary to the opinion of most peo ple,; the Boston fern thrives best when exposed ' for , at least half a day to strong sunlight. An! ideal place for such a. fern is an east bay window. The plant never should be turned Jiround except twice a year, once early' n the spring and again in November, says the Chicago Tribune. About the 1st of March cut off all the, fronds pn the side that has been- turned toward the room. Then turn that bare side toward the light. In a few weeks the young fronds will be" half grown. In the autumn repeat the process. In this way all the fronds are renewed' every twelve months. Quite as important as this systematic exposure to sunlight is proper drain age. The pot which holds the fern should stand on an inverted bowl in a Jardiniere. There is " always water in the Jardiniere, but owing to the invert ed bowl it never reaches the roots of the fern. If the pot stands in water the soil sours and the roots rot, some times to within a few inches of the soil's surface. . . ' ' ' Another point that must be remem bered is that the roots of the fern need air. This free circulation of air is ob tained by having tho jardiniere several sizes larger, than the inner receptacie. " . Every week stir into the soil half a teaspoonful of plant food. Be careful not to let the food touch the fern itself, but mix well with the earth about it. ; If scales should get on the fern wash it with a soft sponge dipped in a suds made from whale oil soap. After two or three hours wash off with clear water, as the suds fill up the pores of the -fern stems. ' ' J Once a day moisten the soil about the fern with a pint of cold tea or coffee. How to Teat Milk. The following is said to be a test of the purity of milk': If you suspect that the milk which your baby drinks con tains formalin or , other artificial pre servative set a glassful in a warm place for six or seven hours. If it sours it is pure; if it remains sweet it probably contains formalin, and you should send it to the laboratory imme diately for analysis. .

The sailor collar Is a separate affair and really finishes the little coat bodice, but a plain vest and collar may be adopted instead. The bodice is wern outside the skirt, coat fashion, aad is mounted at the waist into -its' band.; How to Polish Tortoise. In this tortoise shell age it is well to know how to keep brilliantly polished the many pretty ornaments with which every gentle head Is decorated. Brown locks and fair ones may be faithfully shampooed, but the -shell combs and fancy pins are bound to become dull unless every now and then they are given a brisk rubbing. The finest of old linen is none too good with which to polish up good shell, and after first moistening the soft old cloth in luke warm water it should be touched Into the charcoal box, says the New York Journal.. The finely powdered chart coal Is the only kind for this purpose, It goes without saying. After this has been wiped off a little prepared chalk should bo used in the same way, the chalk having been wet with vinegar. As a finish to give a smooth gloss to the tortoise a little chalk should be taken into the dry palm of the hand and the dainty hair article given an other good rub. How to Sweeten Meat. A little charcoal thrown into the pot wiU sweeten meat that is a little old; not if it is in any way tainted it is then not fit to eat but only if kept a little longer than i!ikes it quite fresh flow to' Steep Toola Bright. Por keeping tools bright and free from rust when out of use," says the Medical Times, "brush them with a preparation made by stirring enough red or black mineral paint into crude petroleum to make the mixture of the consistency easy to spread.

Lewla.J It. BOWSER had been read ing and smoking for harf an hour when he laid the paper down and remarked in what he thought was a careless way: I'm thinking some of trying a little experiment tonight" Don't do it," promptly replied Mrs. Bowser. "The water pipes, electric bells, gas meter and gas fixtures are all right, and I hope fyou won't disturb things."' v,'' ; "No one thought of disturbing things. When I disturb things it's to better them. My handy way of fixing things Baved us $500 last year." "But there's nothing to fix now." "Well, that's all right I was thinking of the Persian who was in the ofllce this afternoon. He happened to notice my ba Id head and , suggested a rem edy." . ' .v . .,; ; And of course you bought it and have been done for again. He probably heard what an easy mark you are - be fore he left home." '. "Woman, stop right where you are," said Mr. Bowser as he pointed a finger I BEGUT TO FEBIfc THE FaliLING D1W." at her across the table. ."In the . first place; I have never been 'done for, as you call it In the second, ,the Persian had nothing for sale. As I told you, he simply , made a suggestion.", - "Did be suggest sandpaper to scratch the roots into life?" asked Mrs. Bowser." , You either drop tha,t sarcastic tone or we don't talk any more. By thunder, but it seems to me that you grow mean er as you grow older. If you had some husbands to .. deal with you'd find out what was what pretty quick. What in blazes is that blamed old cat looking at me in that way for? If I had a crow- DariQ" '. J .-, The cat uttered a mew and disap peared, and Mrs. Bowser begged pai don and expressed tier sorrow. ; Five minutes . later ,Mr. Bowser had: choked back his emotions and wfes saying: "It's no crime, to be baldheaded, but if I can grow new hair I ought to do it This, Persian remedy' is a very simple thing. In Persia, a baldheaded man sits ut at night and lets the dew fall on his bald pate. It acts as a fertilizer, and get ready to go to bed Til slip out for an hour or two to give the restorative a chance to get in its work." Ah hour later he took a seat in tho back yard with his back to the fence. It was a quiet dewy night , and the neighbors seemed to have gone to bed. The family cat sat beside Mr. Bowser in the moonlight, and he had pencil and paper to make a few notes. The memoranda, as Mrs. Bowser ' found them on the grass next day, read: "10:15. I begin to feel the falling dew. Everything as quiet as if death had laid its hand on the city.' "10:30. The dew seems to be striking in. Oat is somewhat agitated, but I am passive. I'd like to see any one' try to Joke me about my baldness. "10:45. The dew seems to produce an itching of the scalp. I take-that as a good sign. The dews of Persia may be different' from those of America, but that's to be seen. Of course, I'm not ashamed of my bald head, but I know my hat would set better if I had hair. "11 o'clock. There is a sort of grate ful glow all over my scalp. The dew is acting on the roots like water on an old sunflower. I believe the Persian knew what he was talking abont. The cat evinces a disposition to retire ,fronv the scene, and I shall not detain her. The idea of Mrs. Bowser asking me if I was going to sandpaper my poll! "11:15. The dew continues. So does the glow.' I don't expect: a new crop of hair( tonight, but I feel 6ure that two more nights will do the trick for me. How solemn the night! It seems as if I heard soft footsteps about me, and ' were I a sentimentalist I- should ssy . fhat angels were hovering near. Mrs. Bowser would as soon I should be an old baldhead as not, but if this Persian trick works I'll have the call on her. ' "11. -CO. Dew still doing business. I have sneezed about' fifty times in the last ten minutes,f but the Persian prob ably figured on that. Sneezing must have an effect on the roots of the hair- a lifting effect ' I can't understand Mrs. Bowser. I never come home with a new remedy that she isn't ready to talk about my being a soft mark. u The patter of footsteps continues," and the cat has struck a fighting attitude. "11:45. It' is what might be termed a heavenly ? shampoo. For the first time in fifteen' years I am feeling a crawling movement under the scalp. I don't go; much on Persians as a race, but thW'fellowis apparently all right. It may or may not be the' movements of angels I hear on the fence, but" Mrs. Bowser, who had gone to a back window to see how the dew doo cure 'got along, was Just; in time to see a bunch of cats numbering about a hun dred thousand . drop from . the fence. They dropped on the Bowser cat and on Mr. Bowser .himself ; and for a mo ment, the &lr was . rent with yells . and,, caterwauling and,? cuss wordsl: '" Then Mr. 'Bowser ' separated himself .frojn the cats and made f or the back door on the . Jump, and a minute later he stood before her with the dew glisten ing on his bald pate. ; "Well, is it a success ?"; she asked. "Woman, how dare you address me?" he thundered. . "Can't I see ?

"How Jolting? What was there to Joke about? I'd like to see a stranger, and a Persian at thatu Joke about my bald head! There was no Joking about it. He simply noticed my bald head and suggested a hair restorative." "And you propose to sit out in the back yard tonight and let the dew fall upon your head?" "Y-e-s, I thought I'd try it. I don't see any harm in trying it. Do you?" "Not a bit except that you'll blame me and talk about a divorce, as you always do." "What will there be to blame you about?" asked Mr. Bowser as he felt that he had got over the worst of it. "You have nothing to do with the dews of heaven or my baldness. It's non sense to talk that way. Thee e '11 be nothing to blame anybody about. If I have talked about a divorce now and then it has all been in fun.
