Something that's just house?, and
not belonging to the wrapper family, it 1
little hard to find. Tlie house fjown ihovts
h-re is a pretty solution cf the problera.!
Inexpensively developed in silk, muslin, ill

it would be very pretty in one of the fancy!
Strata to Keep tjp Appearaae«a,
There are plenty of people, in all
#ur larg8 cities, who do not allow
themselves enough to eat, and practict
til sorts of pinching economy at home
for the sake of keeping up appearances
What terrible inconvenience, hard*
•hip and suffering we endure oa ao
count of other people's eyes and opla*
.ons! What slaves, what fools we
make of ourselves because ef wh«d
other people think! How we school#
and contrive to make them think wa
are other than we really are.
It is other people's eyos that ars
•ipensive. It is other people's eyes
'hat make us unhappy and discontent*
•d with our lot, that maks us strain*
sod struggle, and slave, In order ta
keep up false appearances.
The suit, the hat must be discarded
•ot because they are badly worn, but
oecau3e others will think it strangg
that we do not change them.
The effect of all this false Mrtag,
this constant practice of deception IB
appearances, In our manner of living,
our dress, i9 underrating the Amert*
ran character, ruining our genuine
less, making us superficial, unreal
No man can reilly respect hlmsoV
when he Is conscious that he la aalllag
under false colors.
If you are wearing clothes and llT*
lag in luxury which you cannot afford,
these things label you all over wit*
falsenood, and are perpetual witnessed
•gainst you. There Is only one po#
•ible result upon the character of fals+»
hood, whether acted or spoken, ant
that is perpetual deterioratloa. ft
does not matter whether yoa weaf
lies, tell lies, or act lies, the effedt
ipon your character is the- same.-*

"A year ago I was a wreck from
eoffee drinking and was on the point
of giving up my position In the school
room because of nervousness.
"I was telling a friend about It and
she said, 'We drink nothing at meal
time but Postum, and it is such a
comfort to have something we can
enjoy drinking with the children.'
"I was astonished that she would
allow the children to drink any kinf
of coffee, but she said Postum was th|t
most healthful drink in the world fog
children as well as for older ones, an§
that the condition of both the chifc
dren and adults showed that to bo
"My first trial was a failure. Thg
cook boiled it four or five minutes and
It tasted so flat that I was in despail
but determined to give It one snorA
trial. This time we followed tho d(
rections and boiled It fifteen mlnutsp
after the boiling began. It was a d#
elded success and I was completely
won by its rich, delicious flavor. Is
short time I noticed a decided loi
provement in my condition and kepi
growing better and better month affijjf
month, until now I am porfectlf
healthy, and do ray work In tho aohotil
room with ease and pleasure. I woulf
not return to the nerve-destroylnjj
regular coffee for any money."
