Slouching Ih n habit which many of our women mid girls hnvo contracted. In sumo Instances it is affected for tho purpose of attaining n certain polso of tho bod) n poise which has been de creed by recent fnshlon authorities with little regard for hygiene. The ennsequenco la, In many enses, mis placed urgaus ami Inability to with stand physical exertion; these oontu ally lend to premature decay. While slouching, from the fashion standpoint, Is but u passing mode, It Is n dangerous fancy to Indulge In, for when the tlmo comes, which It Is bound to do, for uu upright pose, some of the organs may have become, weakened to such n degree that they will not re spond to tho call, As a means of attaining an upright poso nnd to assist nature In regaining its normal condition I would suggest tho following exercise: Standing erect; feet slightly sepa rated, anus at sldo, begin by raising up the shoulders and throwing them back; repeat this movement eight or ten tlmos. Now raise tho shoulders und with tho muscles cause them to ro tato; two minutes should be consumed In rotating. Next join the hands at back and raise tho shoulders high; while hold ing this poso the bands still clasped nro slowly moved up the back as fnr aa ono possibly can, held so for a few sec onds and then lowered. This move ment should be repented eight or ten times. Kansas City Btar. I . .

GOOD METHODS OF CLEANING Gin and Water for Black Satin or Silk To Keep Light Woolen Dresses In Beit Condition. Among the methods of cleaning black Ratiu or silk is a curious old process known us tho gin and water euro. A Hpongu dlpiicd In u mixture of gin and water Is used to remove tho shlno and clean It thoroughly, the'silk being Ironed While still wet. In order to keep light woolen dresses nnd skirts In good condition and free them from dust every woman should keep a cat o' nine lis with which to flagellate the gowns used for street wear This Instrument is made of a short stick, to thu end of which narrow strips of leather are attached With It skirts cun bu thoroughly cleaned every day An old fashioned msthod of cleaning white kid gtuvcH consists In rubbing them with white custito Boap. Tho soap Is merely dipped In water nnd then rubbed over the linger tips, tho gloves first having been drawn over the hands. The soap is then rubbed off with a piece of hoft liuimel, the re milt being Mulllclently satisfactory to ennblo the, gloes to be worn onco more without undergoing cleaning with benzine. A way of cleaning white cloth or serge that most people overlook is to rub spots with French chalk, then cover the garment with the chalk and lay It away for soNernl dus. When taken out it needs only to be shaken to be quite clean and reudy fur wear. PLAIN AND SENSIBLE SHOES Childish Footwear In Contrast With the Elabcrate Finery of Their Costumos. If jou look at tho beat-dressed chil dren In the parks or on tho avenues of the big cities, ou will see that thoy all wear sensibly shaped shoes shoes that tnko a good coat of black ing and stnnd heavy wear, too. Bvcn tho white dio'es for afternoon wear or for nll-the-tlmo wear as somo children wear them have round, bulg ing to'es. Tho pumps for house wear are never pointed, either. This Is not becnuso tho children of today dress simply; not at all, for never wero the little frocks shown for children more expensively wrought with hand embroidery, lace rosettes and ruffles. And their shoes certainly cannot be patterned on tho shoes of their ciders, ns many of their frocks nre, for the shoes of their ciders aro anything but sensible. For some reason, no matter how much finery the small girl of the day weurs, the shoes that go with It nro sensible. The Tennis Girl, Kory summer girl plays tennis that Is If sho Is an outdoor' girl, nnd the summer girl of 1911 Is a lover of tho great outdoors. In the morning, when she first gets up, sho puts on her tenuis togs, simple linen clothes made with an eyo to comfort ns well as style. Tho tennis skirt must be short, and It must bo full to allow of a free stride, and this season, when plaits are so much In vogue, n plaited skirt either of whlto serge or linen Is Just tho thing to wear on tho court The blouse to nccomputiy this skirt must bo made to lit loosely, so that the arms may have full swing.
