Mildew usually appears on the
Jbers of cotton and linen ; It takes tho
torm of ouall round dark spots; In
enllty I Is a vegetablo growth, or
form of fungus, which develops on the
libers of the material. Its appearance
's due to dr.mpne.ss, nnd rellccts dls-

put away damp or kept In a damp cup
board. Owing to tho nature of mildew It Is I
llfllcnlt to remove. One of tho sim
plest remedies Is to moisten the stained
'ubrlo, nib It thickly with soft soap
and sprinkle It with common salt.
Place the material on the grnra In the
sunshine and keep It moist. Renew the
treatment each day until the stain dis
appears. A quicker method, and a surer one,
s to keep tho stained part In white
mntcrlal In a solution of bleaching
liquor. To prepare the bleaching
liquor, put half a pound of chlorinated
lime into a basin and pour half a gal
lon of boiling water over ltj add two
tablespoonfuls of wnshlng soda, and
stir to brenk up nil the lumps, and to
enable the water to extract all tho
chlorine. Strain carefully to remove
nil tho powder and to make tho liquid
clear. Bottle and keep ready for use.
This liquor Is used chlelly for the re
Lingerie seems to have renehed the
crest of the wave In sheerness nnd
daintiness; one wonders what will bap
pan next. Its loveliness is not born
to wnste Its flesh-pink blush unseen,
but quite the contrary. Camisoles and
chemise, combinations nnd slips nre
nil visible through sheer blouses that
'depend upon them for added charm.
The blouse often serves merely "to
veil the rose's bloom ;" tho camisole or
other underbodlce providing tho most
interesting contribution -to the cos
tume. Figured georgette, crepe do
chine, lawns, laces and nets all play
their exquisite parts In making up
these undies. Tho finest batiste also
holds the allegiance of gentlewomen
,who never waver In their loyalty to
this soft fabric and the hand embroid
ery thnt it makes worth while.
An envelop chemise and a combina
tion, both of American design nnd
manufacture, nre shown in the picture
above. Flesh pink crepe do chlno
makes the practical chemise shown at
the left, trimmed with Insertion and
edging of the famlllnr vol lace that
women love. A small yoke of Irish
lace Is set In nt the front. Pink satin
straps with bows suspend tho chemise
from tho shoulders and the same rib
bon makes a dignified bow with hang
ing loops and ends to embellish the
front, This garment Is delightfully
cool for warm weather when the light
est union suit proves burdensome. A
short undervest nnd corset are worn
Just because they are so pretty and
for no other reason, tho pink silk gar
ters, with wide lace frills, flaunt their
chnrm in company with this sensible
chemise. There Is a fnd' for such
charming little frivolities and women
delight to pa-sent ench other with
moval of obstinate organic stains, such
ns dyes, fruit, wine nnd old ten ot
coffee stains. But It should only be
used for fabrics mnde from vegeUible
libers, such as Unou and cotton, as Its
application to wool and silk proves fatal
to the fibers. Tho solution should
never be stronger thnn one part of the
liquor to four ports nf hot water.
Tonh; for the Bath.
A bath much favored by the Knclp
plsts, nlong with tho bare-feet habit
Is formed frgm n solution of pine
needles and pine cones. Cover wltl
cold water about a pound of fresb
pine needles and pine cones, broken Ir
small pieces. Bolt for half an hour
strain and add the solution to thf
bath. If you do not want to use the
entire amount at once It can be bot
tled nnd kept for future occasions
This has a tonic effect both on the
nerves and tho skin. It can be used
on alternate days with a bath of sea

lace mntch up with these dainty be

is shirred on two cords and edged with
a full frill of plain georgette. Another
frill froths about the waistline where
tho knickers ni'e set on and ribbon
forms the suspenders over the shoul

georgette Is the last beguiling touch
that Is sure to tempt feminine eyes
Into looking too long at n garment that
Is bound to prove Irresistible. While
georgette hns proved much less fragile
than It looks, underwear made of It
Is a luxury that tho average woman
will hardly Indulge In. But crepe do
chine has wearing qualities that make
It really economical.
Georgette evening conts or after
noon coats are not unusual. And real
ly there Is enough warmth In the
georgette coat, light ns It Is, to protect
tho wearer from discomfort. Many of
the best of these coats are trimmed
with narrow bands of fur. The fur Is
not wide enough to seem bulky, but It
Is In charming contrast to the trans
parent materlnl of the coats.

COWS AND HORSES.
"Moo, moo, moo," said tho cow.
"Moo, moo, moo," said tho other
"Neigh, neigh, neigh," said tho horse
who was out In tho pasture.
"I liave a story to tell," said tho
"We have stories to tell," said the
"And I have n story to tell," said
"Goodness," said tho cow, as she
lazily chewed her cud, making her
mouth go the wholo time. "Good

I would ln the only one."
"We thought so, too," said tho othor
cows together, and the horse snld,
"That was exactly what I thought."
"I believe my story Is different from
all tho other stories," said tho cow.
"Just what wo think about our
stories," said the other cows.
"And Just whnt I thought about my
story." snld the horse, neighing and
waving bis tall.
"Well, what will wo do about It?"
asked the cow.
"We'll all have' to tell our stories In
some way or other," said tho cows.
"Well," said tho cow, "I'd like to
tell mine last, so tho best will be kept
until the last. That's always, a good
way to do, keep tho best until the
"It all depends on what we consider
the best." said tho other cows.
"Well, tako a chance on mine being
the best," said tho cow.
"What will you do nbout mine, nnd
when will I tell It?" nsked the horse.
"Before I tell mine," said the cow.
"Then you think mine will bo next
to yours, or next to tho best?" asked
"I have an idea It will lie," said the
cow. "Now, cows haven't many Ideas

and when n cow has an idea it is worth
noticing for usually we're too lazy to
have such things. We're too busy
chewing, cutlng, lying down, resting,
wandering through the pasture."
"I never before heard of any one
calling It being busy to lie down," said
"Then you have heard It for the
first time," said the cow, smiling a
very broad smile.
"Yes," laughed the horse, neighing,
and snylng after a moment, "Well,
let's begin tho stories."
"The cows, all except myself, will
tell the stories first of all," snld the
Sn tho horse and the cow listened
while all the other cows In turn told
their stories. They told of special
tilings they had had to eat. Some of
them told of milking cans which hud
upet. Some of them told of the way
they had waved their tails around
when they were being milked nnd of
how mad It bad nuido their masters
Some of them told of long, long
walks' people had taken to find them,
for they had wandered so far off. And
one cow told a Joke which made all
th'- others laugh hard.
"A man from tho city," snld the
cow, "said ho would like to go with
(lie farmer's boy to bring In the cows.
Well, he walked and he walked, nnd
wr had wandered nnd wandered.
"The farmer's boy thought nothing
of it at nil, but the city man snld he
had never taken such n walk nnd
when we were found at last and told
to go buck to the barn "for the milking
i ho poor city man was all tired out.
"But what do you suppose ho asked
the farmer's boy?"
All the cows shook their heads.
"He nsked him when they would
have to do the same thing again, and
bow often they had to do It I And he
was so surprised when he heard thnt
we wore' milked twice u day and had
to bo brought homo twice, tool"
They all laughed hard at this, and
then the horse told of how ho had
been taken In a motor nnd brought to
the mnster that way.
And tho cow said, "Just what I wns
going to tell you. I wns brought here
In a grent big motor wagon, nnd I
think it Is pretty much of an honor
for n cow to have a motor ride. I call
myself an up-to-date cow." And all
the others agreed that the cow had
bad an unusunl adventure.
