"The large death rate among babies,"
said a leading physician, "results to a great
extent from the injudicious use of cow'j
milk. The child's stomach is too weak to
liei'.r anything hut mother's milk or lac
tatetl foiil. This lactated food is a puro
substitute for thetiuturul diet, and In many
cases in my practice has, I believe, saved
tho child's life."

The fashionable woman of wealth buys

Not long into, in 11 pietty morning room
up town, Is-longlug to the daughter of a
rich man even among New York's rich
men, theie sat, chatting lightly after tho
fashion of their kind, four young girls
one the owner of the rismi, the other tluec
friends. They had all been al the Mine
dance the night hefote, and the hostett
was taking down the guwushe had worn
from the clothes tree, where It hung, to
show nml comment ou a mishap which had
nearly ruined Its new I'm Man elegance,
As she did so the long gloves, exactly the I
simile 01 tlie itri-tt, fell to the Hour One
of the girls p Ned them up,
"Thank you," said their owner, untieing
her. "Their usefulness it over too. but,
fortunately, I bought six pairs of the same
shade to have plenty of fresh ones."
"Hut these look perfectly flesh yet,''
commented another of the girls.
"No, they'ie not," wat the antwer. "A
pair of gloves to a dance It my Invariable
rule. And I never wear cleaned gloves."
"Well, I do." "And I," "And I," came
from her companions. Whereupon the
pretty hostess turned quickly:
"Why, girls," she cried. "If that's the
case, go through my glove drawer and
stock yourselves up. There's many a pair
there will bear cleaning," and she drew
out a wide, shallow drawer in the bottom
of a wardrobe "Here," she said, "It where
I throw discarded gloves, and every once
In a while I bundle off a lot of them ton
little friend of mine In the country She
won't miss one drawei fill."
The girls laughed and seated themselves
on the lloor before the drawer. The glove

they were unrolled, smoothed mid laid out.
not a pair was found with a rent or any
marked soil. Seventy-nine pairs of gloves
by actual count was the yield of the
drawer, which gave each of tlie three
twepty-llve pairs apiece, with four pair
thrown Imck for "the little friend in the
country." Her Point of View In New
To lleleel Oleiiiniii purine.
Most housekeepers would trent with
scorn tlie idea that they would be tumble
to distinguish oleomargarine from butter,
but at n matter of fact it it now made tc
imitate the genuine article so closely that
no one but au expel t chemist or buttei
dealer could tell, by simple inspection, the
one from the other. It It a mistake to sup
pose tliat oleomargarine It dlsagieeahle
either in taste or odor. .Made at It Is from
purilled fatt and oils the llavor may be
somewhat tame, but this It usually cor
reeled by salting, and. too, the materials
me frequently churned with milk so that
the Imitation is almost peifect.
If there Is a small amount of butter
present in oleomargarine, say as much as
lft or 'JO per cent., the only method of deter
mining that the material Is not genuine
butter Is by chemical analysis, but if, at Is
almost invariably the case, there has been
no butter added to It, the housekeeper can
determine this for herself with at gn-at
certainty at the experienced chemist. It is
only necessary to place about u tablespoon
fill of the suspected material in a small
tin cup or pan and heat it on the stove.
Hutter will melt quickly, give off its char
aetoiistlcodor and foam up until it has
reached several times its original bulk
Oleomargarine will not foam at all, but
will net just like hot fat Into which water
has been spilled. It will spurt and crackle
and drops of the melted fat will be pro
Jetted from the tilth Precisely the same
effect may be gotten by mixing a little
water with lard and heating it If ut the
same time some genuine butter It heated
in another 1IM1 the contrast between the
two effects will be very evident. Pilladel

A ilnpitlu-se lljKleule Until.
Ill hygienic matters tlie .Japanese have
everywhere a habit which may have a les

surprising, but the most Inveterate Kug

enough, abandons hi cold tub in Its favor.
The cold taking which it Is (inspected
must follow it is not found to occur if the
water bus been hot enough. This heat In

bath. In the bath the bather or bather
take a prolonged soaking, the washing
proper being done on the bathroom lloor.

This habit seems to promote softness and

altogether prefeiable to the cold bath in
every particular. The poorest of die .lap
