A Narrow Escape
From Monday's Daily.
Mrs. Walter Young, who resides on
west Main street, narrowly escaped a hor
rible death last evening by the dangerous
fuel, gasoline. The gasoline in the stove
was about exhausted and before she was
about to refill the tank she turned the
flame low enough to extinguish it as she
thought. She went down cellar and re
turned with a crock full of the fluid and
as she leaned against the stove to pour
the oil into the tank, spilled a small
quantity which was caught up by the
She did not discover that her apron
was afire until she felt the heat from the
blaze which got a good start on her cloth
ing. In her excitement and attempt to
put out the fire she dropped the jug
which she held, and it fell to the floor
and broke, letting the oil run, which
soon caught, and ia an instant the whole
room was filled with a blaze.
She immediately ran outside and
tracted the attention of her husband
his brother who were near at hand.
Ed Young in attempting to stop the
on her clothing knocked her .down.
While in that position Mr. McDonald,
who was near by, tore up a piece of car
pet from one of the rooms and wrapped
it around her, smothering the blaze.
Mr. J. C. Coffman, a neighbor succeed

the aid of some carpet which he tore
from the floor.
Her limbs were badly burned and she
was also badly burned about the body.

Cure of the Handa AVhat tbe Wiln D
crrei If Men Only Knew Feinlnlue
releU Ileaddreaa Women Wtto Never
Ilt Notes and Items.
First and foremost, health and its great
tustainer, cleanliness, demand a dry cellar.
The floor, in order to prevent the entrance
of moUture from below, must Le laid with
cement or asphalt, and the cesspools and
plumbing must be in good condition. To
prevent the entranceof moisture from above,
the pavement in the front area and in the
rear court yard must be firmly cemented
between the flag stones; otherwise water will
drip through their crevices after a heavy
raiu or during tho thawing period.
Separate bins for wood, and for rango and
ftirnaoe coal, ore extremely desirable; they
add to the neat appearance of tho entire
cellar, and keep their contents within their
Thero ore many modes of building them,
but a simple and practical way is to firmly
plant four uprights, ono at each corner of the
square or oblong of the desired dimensions.
The wall of the cellar may lie utilized for ono
side, and crossboard nailed to the uprights
form two moro. The front must be arranged
bo as to allow its entiro removal when the
bins rcquiro filling. This can be done by
grooving the two uprights, so that tho boards
can bo shoved upward and lifted out. The
coal heaver beginning, of course, at tho low
est, roturns eac h board to its place ns it In
comes necessary to curb the bin it of tho in
creasing pile. An opening larg.: enough to
easily admit tho shovel w left in tho lowest
board, so that the fuel can be readily ob
tained. In a cool corner of the cellar, r nicto from
the furnace, build a shelved and roomy
closet, whore door is provided with a lock,
for the storing of jellies, preserves, pickles,
etc., tho floor of which can bo uti.iz.id for
tho winter's stock of potatoes. To keep tlx
closet light ami well ventilated, have it
built of slats like a picket fence.
Shelves may le attached to tho wall here
and there, and will prove convenient to hold
empty bottles, which should bo ranged in an
orderly manner, pints and quarts in separate
rows. Flower pots, if inverted and set one
over the other, may also be placed upon these
shelves and aro out of danger of breakago.
If rags aro allowed to accumulate, await
ing the ragman, keep them in a largo case or
trunk to prevent their being scattered over
tho floor. Soap boxes, empty cases and use
less articles of furniture should at once be
reduced to kindlings and thrown into tho
Bulbs, whou removed from the garden, can
bo thrown into a basket and hung from a
convenient hook in the ceiling or under side
of a shelf. Children's sleds, garden imple
ments and sundry other articles can be hung
from the walls, and the hose, unless coiled
about a hose carriage, may bo rolled up and
tied and suspended in the same manner.
A coat of whitewash applied yearly to
helves and walls and closets and bins L
greatly adds to tbo cleanliness of tba cellar
and lightens its usual gloom.
To keep tbo cellar as pure and clean as it
ought to lie kept, the housekeeper need give
but threo orders, each of which, however,
must bo implicitly obeyed: First, the cellar
to be thoroughly swept not less than onco in
a fortnight, and during the heated term
occasionally washed with a broom and
plenty of water. Second, all ashes from the
furnace must bo daily removed a3 long as
the furnace is kept going. Third, any moist
spot upon tho floor must be reported as soon
as detected. Onoe reported, it is her duty to
Immediately ascertain its cause and take the
necessary step3 to prevent its recurrence.
Care of the Housewife's Hands.
One of the greatest trials of women who
must do more or less housework is that of
keeping their hands in shapely condition. It
is all very well to say put on a pair of gloves
to dust or sweep, to make beds, or to garden
in, but who, in tho busy rounds of daily re
curring duties, can take time to get her
gloves, and do her work so much the slower
for having them on? Yet nothing is more
mortifying than an ugly hand, rough and
stained, with stumpy fingers; nothing more
rouses in a woman envious feelings than tho
comparison of her own hands lying in her
lap, showing evidence of hard work, with
those of some sister woman white, well
shapen, dainty objects of admiration and
real beauty. Doubtless ono reason for this is
that bands are always before one's ej-es, and
60 are not as easily forgotten as noses and
teeth; and, therefore, unless there is a sense
of satisfaction In their prominence there is
an uneasy consciousness of their presence.
The simplest thing a woman can do to make
the hands attractive is to care for the nails,
but any attempt to filo them ia the modern
fashion introduced by manicures is simply
useless. Tho most ordinary duties about the
housaare certain to break long, pointed nails,
and getting one's Anger nail into shape after
such a misfortune is no easy task. Two or
three so broken would drive the most sweetly
smiling faces into wrinkles and scowls of
No, it is wisest to keep the nails trimmed
closely, neatly rounded so that the tip is
shaped exactly like tho half circlo at the bot
tom, using the file frequently, for that makes
a neater, clearer cut edge than any knife or
scissors. Keep the little fold of cuticle which
encircles the nail free from hang nails and
show the half moon at tho bottom, which Is
called the mark of beauty in tho nail, by
pushing the fold freely back with a Bharp
pointed ivory instrument. After a little time
this becomes easy enough. Then drying tho
hands with a coarse towel push the flesh back
from the nail constantly.
Then, no matter if the tasks of the day in
clude preparing small fruits for preserving,
and washing pots and pans, which are some
of the hardest duties of housework on hands
and finger nails, never permit the nails to re
main in a stained condition. Wash them ia
an acid and rub them briskly and forcibly
with a nail brush in a bowl of oat meal and
water. Never scrape the under part of the
naiL Tbo roughness thus engendered will
catch and hold dirt for days.
Every one uses more or less creams or gly
cerine or vaseliuo on the skin in the winter
time. The latter is the easier to procure,
the less expensive and the more efficacious in
keeping tho skin soft. Better than the use of
any such application i3 the habit of wearing
a loose glove at night, net a greased glove,
but an ordinary kid oue, two or thswe sizes
larger than the hand. This soon ceases to
be annoying, and, simple as it seems, is, be
yond doubt, the most certain method of
keeping soft, white hands. A woman who
is noticeably awkwark with her liancU
should take paics to learn the freeing mo
tions of the Delsarte system, and with prac
tice by herself the awkwardness will soon
The fingers of seamstresses are often a
source of much annoyance to them from the
pricks of needles. Women who sew want
some way of removing the very evident pin
pricks, and a rough pumice stone is the
best remedy. If it smooth down tbo fleh
until it smarts, a cot tbo finger of an old
glove to hold a profuse- application of vase
lino, will Leul tho soreness in one night. "S.

What the Wife Ioervo.
"My dear," said an eminent philanthropist
to his wife one day as he suddenly burst into
the sitting room, "I novo been counting the
windows in our house, and find thero are
forty. It just occurs to mo that you have
to keep these forty windows clean, or super
intend the process. And that is not a begin
ning of your work. All these rooms have to
be swept and garnished, tho earjets mado
and cleansed, tho house linen prepared and
kept in order, beside tho cooking, and I took
it all as a matter of courso. I just begin to
see what woman's work is, even whoii sho
has help, as you are not always able to pro
cure. You ought to receive a monthly sti
lond as a housekeeper would. Why haven't
you mado me see it before? I have not lteen
just to you while I havo been generous to
The wife who told this in after years to
her husband's credit, sat down with him and
for the first time since their marriago opened
her heart freely upon the topic of woman's
allowance. She confessed to having had
many a sorrowful hour at her jiositiou as a
beggar. At tho head of a largo household in
a western town whero domestic service was
both scant and incompetent, sbo hud hardly
been trusted with f5 at a time during tboir
"Robert and I talked it over," sho said,
"and decided that tho woman who takes care
of any household article, like a carpet for
instance, from the timo it is first mado till it
is wonout, has exendeduprin It nn nmonct
or time and strength laity c-.i-i to t.io lu bur
that mado it, counting from the shearing tho
wool till it comes from the loom. It may bo
unskilled work, but it is work all the same.
Aim I this is only ono small item in her house
keeping labor. Does sho not deserve seme
payment besides her board and clothing?
"Robert saw woman's work in a new light.
From that time till today ho has placed a
generous ''are of his income in my hands, not
as a gift, b. i a right. And he knows that I
will no more fritter it away than ho will. If
I choso to deny ni3-self something I need and
bestow its cost in charity or buy some b?ks
I crave, ho no more thinks of chiding me
than I think of chiding him for sending his
money as ho likes."
Thero are other Roberts who havo yet to
learn this lesson of justice and they aro found
in every walk of life. I have known rich
men who were ready to buy silks, velvets and
diamonds for their wives, sometimes far
beyond what were desired, jret who grudging
ly doled out J.) at a timo when appealed to for
a little money. Tho reason given is that it
may be spent foolishly. If anything will pro
long babyhood into maturity it is such treat
ment. Against it a woman's nature rises in
rebellions indignation. Thoughts of bit
terness rankle in tho wounded heart
and there are flighty, mocking, flip
pant creatures made so by just this
want of trust on the part of their husbands.

No ono was ever so beautiful, so sweet, so
bright. But after that it is different. After,
ho judges her coolly and criticises her frankly
something which can never bo agreeable to
any one, except perhaps a German philoso
pher, who regards himself, as he does every
thing else, in the abstract.
Sho does not, if she has sonse, believe her
self an angel, or a ierfect beauty, or e.
marvel of brilliancy, but sho thinks he holds
that opinion of her. She is willing to live
and die for him because of that. She en
gaged herself to him because he held those
opinions of her. It is of tener than a man
knows that a woman loves a man because ho
loves her; gives herself because he seems to
need her. And now they have been ten
years married, and what did he say just
"But, really, you aro so touchy, Jane."
Touchy! Had he not asked her how sho
could be so "fidgety?"
Did he not say only yesterday: "You re
member how you felt when you were a pretty
girl yourself?" Does ho not speak invari
ably of "all that sort of thing" as past?
The other evening did he not say that ii
was "stupid" in the moonlight on the piazza
and go in and get a lamp and a newspaix:
when sho w-as just thinking: "How like thh

to put his arm around her? And did he not

in his eyes.
Touchy? Sho is miserable; her heart is
breaking. She would not tell him for tho
world, but she is crushed.
And he ho loves her more than ever. Tho
glamour of courtship is gone, but honest
affection is there.

monplace view of life and matrimony that
has altered her bis constant utterance of so
many of those blank, bald truths about timo'

And, since it is the satisfied heart that
makes a charming woman, it would be to his
interest to court his wife, while the twain

Mysteries of Feminine Pockets.
A fashionable young lady thus reveals one
of the mysteries of shopping:
"As I make small purchases I lift the back
of my bat and shove into the crown such
trifles as hairpins, lace, needles, gloves,
thread, etc. You have no idea how conveni
ent it is, for in warm weather one needs both
bands for parasol and fan," and here fashion's
favorite raised her parasol of tulle and silk
and gracefully swung it over her left shoul
der. "Whenever I go to a picnic or boat ex
cursion I get rid of my gloves and handker
chief in this convenient place. 1 went homo
with Rosa M one day last week, and
when she took off her hat there in the crown
were two pairs of silk stockings, three pairs
of kid gloves and four embroidered handker
chiefs. The hat makers have been thought
ful enough to make the crowns of the bats
as large as a good sized basket, and my bas
ket, you see, I carry on my head and not on
Many ladies out shopping have been seen
to dispose of parcels of quite a large size in
their closed umbrellas, the overlapping folds
of silk entirely concealing them from pub
lic view. It Li a notorious fact that ahop-
uitcra mako uo of their bustlea to oneeal
purloined goods. A lady's gown is provided
with but one jKxket, while the tailor bestow
uiou a gentleman's outfit a dozen or more,
and thus the gentler sej aro forced to resort
to somo criediei!t to make up for this defl
ciency. During the reign of tio backs even
this one pocket was relegated to dowdies, as
it destroyed the grateful, flowing outlines of
tho liuro. A lady s glove too, in a recep
tacle fur small change, memorunda, etc., and
tho handkerchief is generally tucked in tho
belt. The nuns carry iu their long, Iooho
sleeves their inouchoirs, and many mi npplo

A locket hewed within tho corset serves in
traveling to btow away bank notes and dia
monds, superw)ding the stylo of former daj's,
when money was concealed in tho fchoo and
stocking. A chamois leather bag, too, is very
often used en voyage suspended from the
neck, and in these tho careful leauty places
her finest jew els, unwilling to risk them in
her trunks. Tho fashionable dame, too, car
ries at her side a full accouterment of neces
KJtries, mado of silver and Kiisjendcd by a
richly wrought chatelaine. Among tho pend

Ia tho hopo of adding-to her height, a

projMirtion, a hut of the exaggerated height

Tho true proportion for a hat, if a jierson
wishes to make every inch of hat tell, is this:
tho height of the hat must lie equal exactly to
thu distance from Win chin to the eyebrow. If
the trimming is ut the back of tho hut it can
lie worn higher than if placed in front.
Broad brims dwarf a figure unless tho lino
of tho circlo is modified by narrowing or
turning up tho brim at tho back. This style
is becoming to most faces. For a tall jterson
a broad brim ami rather high crown aro best.
For if the hat is small ami flat, it contrasts
too strongly with tho wearer's dimensions,

The I'aro and the Veil.
And one must consider the sizo of the veil
also. Tho part of tho face that shows the
marks of age Hrst is tho lower part wrinkles
deepen aliout tho mouth a:d the skin gets
brown there. For this reason a nose veil i
uuliecoming, except to tha young and bloom
ing. It leaves tho least beautiful part of
tho face exposed, and so, of course, exag
gerates its defects. French women, with
their keen, artistic eye, never make this mis
take. Their veils always reach to tho tip of
Auother error that American women are
especially prone to is letting tho veil come
only half down the nose. Thi3 will do for a
jierson with an exquisite nose, but a lung
noso is increased in size by such a short veil.
It is moro becoming for a person who has
this feature we aro discussing, "tip-tilted
like tho petal of a flower," to bring tho lower
edge of the veil in a sharp angle up to tho
side of the hat, for this apparently lengthens
and depresses the nose. On the contrary, a
Roman nose requires that the lower line of
the veil should take a more horizontal direc
tion, and bo fastened at tho back of the bat.

Women Who Nover Ttest.
Many women never rest. They seem not
to understand what rest real rest moans.
To throw one's self down with a newspaper
or a book is not rest; it is only a change of
occupation. To sit down and keep tho fingers
flying over somo sort of fancy work, as if
one were pursued by a demon of unrest, is
certainly not rest. But to lie at full length
upon a hard surface, arms extended at the
sides, head back, with no pillow, eyes closed,
all cares and worries dismissed this is rest;
this will smooth away wrinkles in faco and
in temjKjr; this will give an air of repose tc
tbo tired, anxious, nervous woman; this will
take away many an ncho and straighten out
rounded shoulders and craned out necks.

Infants' toys should bo systematically
cleansed. The child beslavers the imple
ment several times a day, and leaves saliva
in tho rattlo or whatever as a culture bed of
bacteria. This condition of things goes on
till tho toy is a magazine of animal joisons,
to contaminate and reeontaminate tho inno

3Ianufacturing Imitation 3Iuintn!(R.
A gentleman from Portland, Ore., who hn.3
just returned from an extended foreign tour,
was otked why he had not brought home
from Eg3"pt, among other curios, a mummy.
Lie said there was a great deal of fraud in the
mummy business. I'ersous purchasing mum
mies, of course, liko to get tbc-rn as well pre
served and natural looking as jiosaible, and, os
those found are generally in a moro or less di
lapidated condition, venders have engaged in
the business of manufacturing bogus mum
mies. They bargain with tramps, Ix-ggarsaud
such jcopl3 for their carcasses, paying there
for a yum sufficient to make their remaining
days short aud sweet. These fellows are pre
served and pickled, and then smoked until
they are good imitations of the genuine mum
my. Whole rows of theso articles can bo een
in a f-moke house at once. When sufficiently
dry they are wrapped in mummy cloth and
sold to Americans chiefly, bringing a high
price. Cleveland Leader.
liathcr In Oiled fcllk.
Tho latest fad among bathers- is to wear
costumes lined with oiled silk. This was
told as a secret by a young lady to whom
was propounded the interrogatory why the
was able to stay in tho water so long. You
see, the oiled siik prevents the water from
penetrating, and enables tho bath r to fctay
in the water a long timo without Lecomiag
cold. This new innovation was gotten up
through a wager tat ween two ladies as"to
which could stay in tho longest; and one of
them, through natural ingenuity, bethought
herself of oiled bilk, and won tho wager.
Whilo her rival emerged from the briny with
chattering teeth, tho other bobbed up ia the
water serenely and smiling. San Francisco
American lamps in I 'aria.
When pcoplo prate of novelties found only
ia Paris, confound them by stating that the
tall lamps which decorate fashionablo draw
ing rooms are unknown to the conservative
Parisian households. Two of these "piano
lamps," as they cro sometimes called, were
carried over as gifts in Juno and t-t up in
one of the most elegant apartments in Paris,
where they instantly created a sensation.
French, taste has Leeu forced to admit that
American taste is to tho front in the matter
of lamps at least. New Orleans Times-Democrat.
