ojienly confessed by a merry jwrty of eight
who drove home together through the moon

when the fish came on and proved to be an
elaborately made dish for which this singu
lar ailuir might jwssibly be the article of
use, there was an almost imperceptible lull,
a succession of quick glances toward the
head of the table, and a hesitating flutter of
hands, and this joker submitted his hostess
to such a running tire of questions that she
-was the very last person to take up her
fork and calmly begin to eat. Then
followed a succession of courses for
which tho articles of use so obviously
suggested themselves that there could
be no mistake, and then come a punch
in which were frozen rum, cherries, while on
the plate which held the pretty punch gloss
was a little of something which afterward
proved to be a strange sweet East Indian con
diment. Again the half auxious lull, and
again was the Attention of the hostess en

bold and self confident than those about her

that a hostess, thoughtful and kind, whose
housekeeping appurtenances are novel and
likely to bo unfamiliar to friends perhaps
less favored with that power for possessing
new innovations, should avoid the possibility
of making them feel awkward, not of course
by keeping her possessions locked away in
ber silver safe or her china closet, but by
setting quick example of what use to put the
new thing, or, as might easily have been done
in the above case, having the spoon tent to
each individual at the same time and on tb
same plate with the paper case holding tb
terrapin. There could then have been no
mistake and no discomfort, while the service
would have been qite as pretty. "S. S. E.

" The Tendency to Untruthfulness.
But coming down to the detail of the thing,
there is no surer way to make a child with
any tendency to untruthfulness cherish the
tendency than to let him know that you are
aware of the tendency, and to let him know
it, most of all, in any obnoxious way.
It is possible that with a child with
whom you Lave established a confiden
tial intimacy, so that he considers you
more as his dear friend than as his cor
rector and overseer, you can let such knowl
edge of yours be known, and can become,
agreeably to him, a fellow watcher with him
self over the fault. But this is not a very
frequent possibility, since children's inti
mates and confidants are liable to be of tho
same ago with themselves, and it is rarely
'hat they do not look up with a little awe
id distance upon the person, whoever it
zj bfstthat is appointed to take care of
"irAl orals and behavior.
'iut there is one course that can always be
sued, and that is never to let the child
a moment dream that you suspect him
the wrong doing or saying. Unless it
v juld be absolutely necessary, for some rea
yf better known to yourself, that you should
"letray your knowledge, keep it to yourself
and maintain your watchfulness, but let the
child hope that you consider his standard of
truthfulness to be as high as any in the
-rorld. You can do it without either deceit
- untruthfulness on your own part if you

KhooU CoaMll Their Parents,
One U often tempted to smile at soiimi of
the questions relating to etiquette, asked
through the columns of the press by young
men and women. The answers are so obvi
ous to persons of more mature age and ex
perience that one cannot help wondering
why these young people do not consult tl.eir
parents, for, making due allowance for the
case of orphans, many of those who seek in
formation in this way must possess falters
and mothers. Alasl it has probably never
occurred to theso young iersons that they
should consult their parents in kindred mat
ters; and viewed in this light, the subject
becomes both a sud and a serious one.
The fathers and mothers of our day are
certainly to blame for this state of things
they have, in many cases, allowed their
children to grow tip much like unbroken
colts, in the matter of social discipline and
restraint, and when they at last begin to see
for themselves the necessity of finding out
and obeying social laws, they turn away
from their parents to seek other sources of
information, because they have never been
taught to take counsel of their natural
Many mothers seem to think that if they
attend to the details of housekeeping, ro
vide their children with clothing and pay
their school bills, they have done all that
can be required of them. Others, again.
forget that what is so familiar to them is
unknown ground to their children, and the
latter are only too willing to assume control
of all their own actions, till, by and by, some
blunder causes them pain and mortification.
and they perceive that the world polite, like
every other world, has laws which cannot
be violated with impunity.
In nine cases out of ten tho best rule in to
"ask mother." She may not always bo able
to tell ber daughter the newest "fad," but
newest fads are not always desirable are
followed often by a certain fast set only.
Mother can almost always tell about the old

Unconscious Cruelty to Children.
Some loving mothers are very cruel to
littlo girls. 1 remember an excellent lady.
whose children attended the same school I
went to, who made their lives miserable by
tacking around the skirts of every white
dress they wore a curiously beautiful piece of
embroidery. The thing in itself was charm
ing, but in that year a little girl's dress was
plainly hemmed or tucked. 1 he other chil
lren laughed at the trimming they could not
appreciate, the victims wept. The mother
kept on the even tenor of her way, and regu
larly did up the trimming when it was
Tho picturesque, tho odd, the grotesque,
has been fashionable now for years, but the
formal was then the order of tbo day. View
ing tho distress of my friends, I then and
there resolved that if I "had children when I
was grown up and married," they shou'd
never bo tormented by a whim of mine. Tho
world of small people is less tolerant than
that of "grown ups."
I have seen a "queer" ranch basket, a
caprice in the cut of an apron, a set of f ors
not approved of by schoolmates, torture a
child's soul; and when a schoolgirl or school
boy wants something '"because the others
have it," provide it if you can.
A sense of being different from others, pe
culiar, an object of ridicule, breaks a child's
spirit, and it does not matter that it ought to
know that what you have given it is some
thing superior, if it does not.
I knew a woman who told me that she al
most hated her mother because she would
cut Lcr hair short, like a boy's, at a time
when all the other children wore a long
braid tied with a ribbon, unless they were
fortunate enough to possess "ringlets."

The "Old Baby's" Grief.
What a curious thing it is to think that
that wonderful new baby will turn into a
commonplace old baby in a year or two that
with the advent of number two his reign is
A little girl, though she is only 2 years
old, takes an interest in that new baby, feels
that she must help take care of it, goes about
maternally airing its garments and holding
the pincushion for nurse, delights in its baths,
and boasts about her baby brother before she
can talk plain. But the boy that is another
matter. He scowls when that wrinkled
piece of humanity is presented to him, and
refuses to kiss it. He wants none of it. Why
should it have his place on mamma's shoul
der! Why should be be told to go away? He
thinks as ill of it as bis limited knowledge of
mundane affairs will permit him to think of
anything. He has been known to request that
it might be "frowed away," and to call it
"nassy sing;" and, indeed, his trials are very
great. Life has altered signally for him.
He feels it to his heart's core, if he is made of

Well for him, at this time, if he has a grand
mother ready to make him her idol, a little
jealous for him as the first born. Then, indeed,
his ways shortly become the ways of pleasant
ness, and life assumes a holiday, cake, candy,
gingerbread and toy aspect. But in any
event that old baby has a very unhappy
day or two before it, a season when knowl
edge of the bitterness of life comes to him
prematurely, and he understands the feelings
of a deposed emperor. Mary Kyle Dallas in
Once a Week.
Let the Girls Romp.
Most mothers have a dread of romps, so
they lecture the girls daily on the proprieties,
and exhort them to be littlo ladles. They
like to see them very quiet and gentle and as
prim as possible. The lot of such children
is rather pitiable, for they are deprived of
the fun and frolic which they ore entitled to.
Children boys and girls must have exercise
to keep them healthy. Deprive them of it,
and they will fade away like flowers without
sunshine. Running, racing, skipping, climb
ing these are the things that strengthen the
muscles, expand the chest and build up the
nerves. Tho mild dose of exercise taken iu
the nursery ith calisthenics or gymnastics
will not invigorate the system Ukeagood

Mothers, therefore, who counsel their little
girls to play very quietly make a mistake,

girl than the pale, lily faced one, who is
called every inch a lady. ' The latter rarely
breaks thing, or tears her dresses, or tires
her mother's p&tiMice as the former does;
but, after all, what does the tearing and
breaking amount tol It is cot a wise policy
to put au old head on young shoulders. Child
hood is the time for childish pranks and
plays. The girls will grow into womanhood
soon enough. Let them be children as loi
as they can. Civ them plenty of fresh air
and sunlight, and let them ran and romp as

Improvement f the Hair.
But hair must be carefully cultivate! to
grow even in length, supple, silken and
graceful in color. Everything is encourag
ing for the improvement of hair if time can
be given it. The same treatment will not do
for different kinds of hair by any means.
Strong, stiff, naturally moist hair needs a
weekly shampooing and daily and nightly
brushing, with exposure to the morning and
evening sun, which is a great stimulant to
the hair. Thin, soft, dry hair needs tender
care, but with either the first step toward
improvement is thorough washing of tho
scalp and hair, which collects dust its entire
length. To cleanse it the various alkalies,
borax, ammonia, carbonate of potash and
washing soda are used, and the strong hair
will bear them, but they burn the life out of
thin, dry hair.
Tho Venetian ladies drew their hair through
a crownless hat and let it stream over the
brim to dry, and 3Tou may follow tho example,
sitting in tho sun If possible an hour. Light
is a great stimulant and preservative to hair,
ami it is well to open it when dry and let the
wind blow through. The sun will cause tho
natural oil of tho hair to flow or the head
may be held to the fire til I the dry hair feels
moist. A smart brushing night and morn
ing, careful braiding before sleep, and an
hour spent once a month clipping all forked
ends, will insure a rapid growth of hair, if
the general health is good, without other
treatment. If you want a stimulant at night
rub a littlo oil of lavender in the roots of the
hair with shampoo brush. Do not irritate
tho scalp by hard brushing. Regular care is
better than overdoing. Shirley Dare.
Locked l" for Company.
Among the strange fetiches that survive
among a race otherwise civilized and refined
is that of the parlor and best bedroom.
These are commonly the largest, coolest and
pleasantest rooms in the house, fitted with
the most attractive furniture, cariiets and
pictures and locked up for company. Was
ever such folly I A man who affords him
self an agreeable apartment puts himself out
of it and will not let himself in unless the
clergyman is there, or unless somebody ar
rives from a distant city or another street.
It is better to turn the juvenile population
of the house into the parlor, to wear tho best
carpets to shreds, to leave finger marks on
tho mantel piece, to let them jump on tho
bed in the best room until it has no more
spring in it than a restaurant chicken-Mt is
wiser to do this than to close and sanctify
these apartments, involving them in solem
nity, dampness and a stuffy smell. Open tho
blinds and windows and let the light and air
in; let the children in, too, and live there
3'ourself. Don't have things too lino to use.
If you own a piece of furniture that you think
is too good for you, und that you find that
3-ou can't livo up to it, give it to a museum
and havo it put in a gloss case, or, better.
give it to a friend who is not afraid of it.

Tender Morsels of Humanity.

Use of a Clothes Tree.
A clothes tree, as you may know, is a stiff
affair, looking very much like the trunk of a
tree with several short, bare branches left at
tho top. If you have one of these convenient
articles in each bed room the masculine mem
bers of your household may be induced to use
the pegs instead of hanging up their clothes
on the floor. A walnut or cherry clothes tree
is just the thing for a small hall where on or
dinary hat rack would be in the way. Home.
There ere numerous ways to remove warts.
A good, simple and harmless way is said to
be the saturating of tho wart with lemon
juice two or three times a day for several
days or a week. The wart will then disap
pear gradually and without pain, leaving no
mark. Another way is to use common wash
ing soda and apply it frequently.
The best and simplest cosmetic for woman
is constant gentleness and sympathy for the
noblest interests of her fellow creatures.
This preserves and gives to her features au
indelibly gay, fresh and agreeable expression.
If women would but realize that harshness
makes them ugly, it would prove the best
means of converbion.
It you can only restrain a child from wrong
conduct by hurting it, I fear you have little
to hope for in its future. At first it should
be good from lovo for you. It should obey
because you have proved yourself wise and
loving in its eyes. After, because you have
taught it to be honorable.
To keep the surface of your kid gloves
looking well, when you take them off smooth
them out lengthwise until they have about
the same outline that they have on your
hand, and put them in a dry place. If the
gloves are rolled together into a wad, the
surface will soon present an unpleasing ap
pearance. There are many skins which redden and
become irritated in summer, and when such
is the case saline draughts and lemonade
should be taken freely, while a wineglass of
vinegar in a pint of distilled water with a
little bran Snakes an excellent, if old fash
ioned, wash. "

"Do you feel any weakening of your pow

The Key to Popular Writing.
It is not given to any one man to cover
successfully the whole rago of literary
work, and as an essayist Mr. Robert Louis
Stevenson is a failure. Of course anything
dressed in tho garment of his perfect Eng
lish is pleasant reading, but for a man to
successfully write critical monologues he
must have something in them beside the
beauty of style. Mi-. Stevenson, in his esti
mate of popular writers, does not seem to
touch the peculiar power of this class at alL
He wholly fails to notice tho one thing which
is common to all of them, be their methods
what they may.
There is a gentleman in New iork, Mr.
Harlan P. Halsey, who is the author of the Old
Sleuth series of stories. These are so popular
that he makes an income of about $23,000 a
year by his pen. His own statement about hia
work is worth quoting, therefore, as that of
a man who knows how to reach the world of
readers spoken- of by Mr. Stevenson: "I
have a Bet rule," he said upon one occasion;
'I make something happen within every
thousand words." Incident, then, is the key
to popular writing, not a description of what
the reader "believes he would be were he in
the hero's place," as Mr, Stevenson puts it.
If Mr. Stevenson will again examine the
stories of Sylvanua Cobb, Jr., Mrs. South
worth, Braeebridge Hemyng, Pierce Egan,
or any of the popular writers, he will find
that they are but a succession of incidents,
incidents, incidents. a There is always some
thing happening within each thousand
words. Current Literature.
