Their I'offeRion Will Render Traveling
More Agreeable.
All who have tri! wrapping various
articles in paper arid putting them in a
traveling-b.-ij, am suns to become firm'
believers in tlus doctrine of the "total
depravity" of objects. De
spite all endeavors to the contrary, the

paper will come off or tear at the most
critical time.
On any journey which will extend
through an entire day or night, certain
articles are indispensable for comfort,
and they should lm carried in a pood
substantial traveling-bay, which can le
purchased for a small sum and will last
for years. In it should le placed tow
els, Boap, tooth-brush, comb and brush,
and a pair of slippers; if for a nig-ht
journey, a loose wrapper or dressing
Back in addition.
The soap supplied nt hotels and in
the toilet-rooms of sleeping1 cars ia
often not such as a person would wish
to use, and even if it were, the thought
of all who have used it before is very
unpleasant. A simple soap-case (Fig.
1) can be crocheted out of white knitting-cotton;
No. 10 is a g'ood size. It is
worked in single crochet stitch with a
medium-sized steel crochet needle. It is
made in two pieces ease and a cover
to fit over it. They are joined with a
cord made by twisting several strands
of the cotton tightly together. A piece
of narrow linen tape ten inchea long is
fastened to the center of the cover to be
wrapped around the case and tied.
When it is to be placed in the bag a
chain about an inch and a half long is
first made; this is worked round and
round, widening for several rows. The
case is about three inches long, an inch
deep and the same wide. The cover
la made in exactly the same manner,
only the sides are worked a little more
loosely, to admit of its slipping over. A
piece of soap is cut to fit and put in the
case. The material used to make 'this
little case allows of its being washed
when soiled, and the stitch used makes
it bo thick that there is no danger of
the damp 6oap soiling any other of the
contents of the bag.

ombs. The material is heavy un
bleached linen twill. The shoe pocket
is ten inches long and six wide. On the
front a design of a pair of shoes is
worked in outline with brown linen
rope floss. The flap is worked round
the edge in button-hole stitch with the
same floss. A brown ivory button on
the pocket and a small cord and tassel
on the flap provide the fastening.
The comb-case is made of the same
material, and when desired can be made
large enough for the brush also. In
tii at case a width of three inches and a
length of eight will be found a good
size. A case six inches long and one
wide will hold a tooth brush nicely.

That oilcloth can be kept bright for

That if the hands are rubbed on a
stick of celery after peeling onions the
smell will be entirely removed.
That if soap Is purchased in large
quantities, and kept in a warm dry
place, half the usual amount will be re
quired. That tubs will not warp or crack
open, if the precaution is taken to put
a pail of water into each, directly after

How to Cook Vegetables.
From a new cook book by Mrs. Rorer,
we take some ideas on the subject. Few
things show the difference between
comfortable and slovenly housekeeping
more quickly than the dressing of vege
tables. Potatoes, one of the most im
portant vegetables . (served ii nearly
every household once, are rarely
cooked in a wholesome or even palata
ble manner; out of every ten plates
that come to the table but one will be
found perfect. All green vegetables
should be freshly gathered, washed in
cold water, and cooked in freshly boiled
water until tender, not a moment
longer. After water has boiled 'for a
time it parte with its gases and be-;
comes hard, and most vegetables' are
fetter cooked in soft water.

healtil than to the preparation of babyrf
; wardrobe; so, while the litUo elo
n bo dainty and beautiful, -it nMl not
take all the mother's time to prepare it,
either by hand or at the sewing ma-;
A great many are now favoring the
use of knitted eotton bands, as very few

coarse, steel needles. In the middle of

thus keeping loth in place.
Some prefer to do without socks. If
they are to Ik: left on after being wet I
should say by all means have none; but
with several pairs on hand there need
be no neglect in this matter. These
are best knit like a short stocking, and
they wear best of all. Some buy the
short, cashmere hose; these are very
nice and wear better than those that
are crocheted. However, if you can do
no better, crochet them or make a little
bootee of chamois skin.
Another very necessary article for a
small baby is a pad made of two layers
of cotton batting between some thin
material old swiss or lawn, if you
have it; cheese cloth if yon must buy
new. This can be fastened to a band
which is pinned around the waist.
This serves to protect the flannels of
the baby, and the dress of the person
who is holding the baby. Of course
this must be changed as frequently as
the diaper.
No careful mother will allow the
mattress of her child's bed to ever get
wet. lrotect it with a piece of rubber
cloth; over this lay a blanket, then a
sheet. To protect these, have several
of these thin pads to lay under the
child. These are more easily laundried'
than all the beddm"- rf crib.
"Never place, a heavy covering over a
little baby. Everything for the bed
should be light and warm. Soft blan

cloth, never a heavy shawL Remem
ber, ycu lay your child down with all
its clothes on to sleep. If you cover it
heavily when you take it up it is in a
profuse perspiration, as you yourself,
would be under like circumstances. At
such a time stop to think whether it is
just the thing to carry the child to an
open door or stand with it in a draft of
air. Many ailmenta can be traced to
just such carelessness.
Dresses of soft wools, like the illus
tration, can be used on cool or rainy;
days, as upon rainy days the starch Is
taken out of white goods and it loses'
its freshness so soon. Long cloaks, If,
of good material, can be utilized as a
short cloak and dress when shorter
clothes are needed. The best economy
is to provide material that will work up'
into other garments when the change is'
necessary. Farm and Fireside.
To Remove Stains from Linen.
Salts of lemon and oxalic- acid are
doubtless excellent for removing stains
from linen, but they are such deadly
poisons that one dislikes to think of
their use even in the most careful of
hands. , A little common salt sprinkled,
on an ink spot, iron rust, or other stain!
and then thoroughly wet with lemon j
juice and exposed to the sun will do as,
effective work as the poisons. Eenewl
