Comfort and Health Ara Matters of the First Importance. The matter of comfort Is one that every mother does well to study for the sake of young nerves. Many a fur rowed forehead is traceable to a meth od of hairdresslng that is a constant Irritation to a child, and there.are oth er ways in which a deleterious effect Is traceable. Sensitive sight la very much influ enced by errant tresses that are con stantly obtruding themselves, for which reason the straight cut fringe, which Is infinitely becoming to a little girl with a high forehead, should, if worn, be kept well and neatly cut, so that it never "gets into the eyes." At abont the age of thirteen it may lie necessary to do away with the fringe. The penalty of keeping it in definitely as an item of the coiffure scheme Is that It is difficult to alter the dressing quickly. The hair must have time to grow, and when it Is in the unmanageable between stage, neither long enough to be turned back nor short enough to be plastered down over the brow, it must be tucked beneath the hair bnnd or lightly curled and bo trained backward by degrees. It is made the rule in some nurseries that the little girls shall not have their hair dressed constantly In the same manner, because it is not good for it always to be parted in the center or al ways to be finished with a band of rib bon. A resource in such a case is the side parting, with a small bow at one side.

Black and while Is always a fashionable combination, and a black and white bonnet is smart. For dressy occasions such as afternoon receptions, church weddings, lunch eons, etc., there is nothing prettier for the elderly woman than the toque or bonnet made almost entirely of flow ers. A NEW BLIND MAN'S BLUFF. This One Is Different From the Origi nal—It Is Worked With Spoons. A variation of blind man's bluff may be played in this fashion: Get a lighted candlestick, a handkerchief and two tablespoons. Blindfold one of the party, give him the spoons, one in each hand, and place him in the middle of a large ring of chairs on which the rest of the party are seated and tell him that he must try to blow out the light as it is passed quickly from hand to hand by the others. Tiie blind man will find this a diffi cult task to accomplish, and even when he lias done so his troubles are not over. He must then try to guess who tiie person is who was holding the light when it was blown out. But he is not allowed to feel the person, as in ordi nary blind man's bluff that would be far too easy. lie can only feel with the spoons. He feels the person's head to see If he has long or short hair, and he feels how the dress is trimmed and tries to remember who is wearing a dress trimmed that way, and he puts the cold spoon down his neck, and then the person says "Ouch!" and the blind man cries, "Why, it's Billy!" and tears off the bandage. And then it is Billy's turn to stand in the circle and blow out the candle and try to guess who is who with the help of cold tablespoons. A Queer People of Northern Mexico. In the more inaccessible parts of the Sierra Madre mountains, in northern Mexico, livo a curious people called the Tarahuamaris. Many of these dwell in caves, but they have also small vil lages, all of them about 8,000 feet above sea level. The Tarahuamaris are small in body, but possessed of much endurance. Their only food is maizev and they manufacture drink called teshuin from the same cereal. Their language is limited to about 300 words, and they cannot count beyond GIFTS TO FILIPINO CHIEFS. Discretion In Bestowing Presents Needed to Ingratiate Oneself. While traveling around these people of the mountains the giving of pres ents enters a great ileal into ih.- meih ods of treating with them, and as a rule the gifts which are acceptable are mere trifles, says the Manila Times. Among the lfugaos a custom formerly required them 10 wear in ilie hair a white rooster's leather on liesia days. Mure recently a strip of onion skin tissue paper an inch wide has been in (rod need, and it is now lio universal present from the secretary 011 his visits. These papers are worn as a sign of holiday. The llougots and Caliugas like heads, and a common bead of imitation agate, which is worth a few centnvos in Manila, has its value enhanced 1 11 it is worth 50 eentavos in the hills. Scar let cioth is also acceptable to the lfu gaos and Ilongots. One of the very highest prizes of all is the pearl oyster shell, and several of Ihese are always taken along. A great deal of discretion must be exercised in giving such pres ents, so as not to cheapen them nor to place them in the hands of the wrong people. WHY YOU SIGH. The Result of Not Taking Enough Oxygen Into the Lungs. When any one sighs unconscionsl.v it means that he has been taking short breaths and not drawing sullicient oxygen into the lungs. Finally the lungs must have more oxygen, they are hungry for it. and so the lungs ex ert their right and actually force you to take in a great breath of air.

"You want Mabel to marry a business manager, as it were.'' "That is rather a blunt way of put ting it." said Phillips uneasily, "it would be better to say that Bray's business qualifications nre point strongly in his favor." "While my lack of them is to my discredit':" "You do not have the knack of seiz ing your opportunities." said Phillips. "Now, take my ease, know that the Smelter and Kxploration company pur poses getting concessions in Borona. 1 am going to take a run down there and get the railroad franchise through t'amar. enmar is on the coast, and the company will have to pay me well for what: will cost 1110 practically noth ing.

"1 have gone with Dan," she wrote. "I want a husband, not a valuable addi tion to '.he linn of Phillips & Kent." Phillips shrugged his shoulders and went, his way. Deep in his heart her desertion hurl, but with several'big operations pending lie could not afford to waste time. He shut his ears to the talk of his associates, but as the days went on and Dan and Mabel did not appear to ask parental forgiveness his anxiety grew, lie had supposed that when tile honeymoon was over they would come back. He was almost tempted to delay his trip to Caniar.
