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

For the Woman Along In Years.
The styles are kind to the elderly
woman this season. 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

the elderly woman than the toque or

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
words, and they cannot count beyond
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
wear in ilie hair a
white rooster's leather on liesia days.
Mure recently a strip of onion skin

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.
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.
This gives Uioin.the needed oxygen,
and they can go on with their work
for awhile longer, when they will
force another "sigh.'' wlilch is I11 real
