FOUR LITTLE GIRLS.
, Each Vfearinjr a Toilet la Accordance
a with JotciiU Kuhloiu.
j These two dainty little creatures are
: very taste f tally and charmingly clad,
the one on the left wearing1 a combina
J tlon dress of figured white batiste and
plain whitu batiste. The skirt is made
up on a foundation of white silk and is
lined with muslin half way up. The
waist, which passes under 'the skirt, is
closed with hooks invisible at the back.
There is a double niching-, as repre
sented, at tlie neckfand j-olce, and the
sleeves are puffed at the wrist and also
ornament al with niching1. The little
liuly on the rilit is dressed in white
crepe, the skirt Ihmii made upon a silk
foundation lined with muslin. All the
edjje of the material, whieli is cut on
the bias, is trimmed with icmbroidery
sewed on the wrour side. The corsag-o
is also trimmed in the same manner,
and there is a bouffant sleeve over an
ordinary one. The eeinture must be
made up on stiff material and have a
rosette of ribbon.
The left hand figure . of the tiny
couple represented in the other illus
tration is dressed in ffray linen with a
band of blue embroidery forming1 a
square yoke, with ribbons on the
shonklors. A band of the embroidery
r y - - v
also serves for a belt. The garment is
buttoned at the back. The figure on
the right wears a figured white batiste,
with a band of embroidery at the bot
tom of the skirt surmounted by three
narrow plaits. There is a pointed em
broidered eeinture. The waist is made
of two insertions of embroidery
scalloped on one edge and run with
ribbon on the other. They cross at the
back and are buttoned to the belt. N.
A33UT IRISH MOSS.
It Form a Most Nutritious and Soothing
Dirt for Invalid;.
Amor.? the many useful things which
absolute privation has been the means
of making known to the world is carra
geen, or Irish moss. The virtues of this
seaweed, now so largely used as a basis
for mucilaginous drinks and cough
emulsions, were for many years known
only to the very poorest of the poor in
habitants of the Irish sea-coast, who
were driven to its use by the pangs of
Finding that when boiled it produced
a thick, nourishing, and not unpalatable
jelly, they for a long time used it as
food before becoming gradually aware
of its beneficial effects in diseases of the
throat and lungs. After a time this
discovery led to its medicinal use in
other and richer lands.
Boiled with milk, or even with water,
and carefully strained, it forms a most
nutritious and soothing diet for invalids,
especially for those who suffer from
chronic diarrhoea or other complaints
which are attended with great irrita
bility of the mucous membrane lining
stomach and intestines. The jelly may
be sweetened or flavored in various
ways, fruit juice9, either canned or in a
natural state, and coffee or chocolate,
prepared as for the table, being prefer
able to any of the flavoring extracts,
both for taste and healthfulness. For
invalids it is always best to use the
least amount of sugar which will make
it palatable. Harper's Bazar.
The Latest ta Pincushions.
The pincushion is no longer the piece
de resistance of the toilet table. From
behemoth size it has gradually dwindled
down to a mere dainty accessory, suf
ficient indeed for all practical purposes,
but no longer forcing itself on the at
tention. Sometimes the cushion is
pendant and hangs on the wall beside
the toilet table. In this case it is in the
shape of a succession of small rolling
pins in graded sizes, made of plush and
separated by ribbons. Then there are
the floral pincushions, sunflowers, roses
or water lilies. Cabbages, beets and
other vegetable designs are carried out
in a realistic spirit, but are hardly in as
good taste. Fanciful cushions of plush
and satin are also made in shape of
banjos, fiddles or flutes, which may
hang on a wall or rest on a toilet table.

The "Glove Tree."
The extremely particular woman will
find use for what the clever designer
calls the glove tree. This is a plaster
cast of the owner's hand, over which
she stretches her gloves as she removes
them. Of course it is necessary to have
a pair of. the models and several gloves
may be drawn over them at the same I
time. The virtue of this invention is !
said to be in the fact that gloves so j
cared for retain their shape and flexi- ;
ibility much longer than when they are
rolled into the customary careless wads.

IJuby's second summer is always the
most trj-ing. It is cutting its teeth, and
the irritation eoi.ibined with the heat
makes life no easy matter for the poor
little thing. It must Iks carefully
waUrtied, and its ailments rationally
treated if it is to lie carried successfully
through this dangerous season.
A bal in the country, with ull the
advantages of fresh air and good milk,
is under the best conditions possible to
resist t lie effects of the heat. Yet the
country, like everything else, has its
counter-balancing disadvantages, and
often one of these is the distance from
a doctor. lie fore leaving town the
mother should ask her family physician
for a few powders of jiepsiii and bis
muth, or any simple remedy he may
wish to prescribe f.r indigestion, with
full directions for its use. She should
take with her a bottle of limewater and
another of pancrcatin, or one of the
other preparations for peptonizing
milk, so that she may be prepared for
The purity of milk, even in the lest
surroundings, is always open to ques
tion, because it absorbs germs so read
ily. That used for food for a baby
should be sterilized to make it perfectly
safe. This can be done in the morning
and evening by putting the milk, fresh
from the cow, in bottles of a size to
hold enough for one meal each. Place
these in a saucepan filled with cold
water and set it on the stove where it
will heat gradually. After the water
boils for a short time, cork the bottles
and let them remain in it for half an
hour. Ilemove from the stove, and
when the water is cool take out the bot
tles. If no ice is to be had, stand them
in a stone jar containing water, and
wrap the jar in wet flannel, or put it in
a brook in a shady place. When a bot
tle is opened and all the milk is not
used, throw away the rcm-Mj dcr.

Keep the baby in the open air as
much as possible, but do not have it out
in the evening when the dew is falling.
If a hammock is slung in the shade it

will in a hot room.
Dress it loosely, with a gauze flannel

Embroidered initials, though always
liked, have never lieen more popular
than at present. For bed and table
linen there are many designs shown,
but none of them are as large as those
used for the purpose a few j'ears ago.
But if one desires a larger initial for
marking fancy articles with heavy silk,
floss or wool, the model, or any other
letter or design, may be enlarged to any
size as follows:
Copy the design on papier, inclose it
in four straight lines (a parallelogram),

and rule it off with a pencil into small
even squares; then, in the same propor
tion, draw another parallelogram large
enough to inclose a letter of the desired
size, mark it off into just as many
squares as the. first one; in each square
lightly copy the portion of the letter
inclosed in the corresponding square of
the small parallelgram. Very little
practice is required; one can hardly go
wrong in so small a space. When the
enlarged copy is drawn in every square
go over the whole letter more heavily
and smoothly with the pencil, and
when perfect go over it agaii with pen
and ink, and afterward erase all the
Designs may be decreased in size just
as easily by reversing the operation
just described. American Agricultur
ist. HOMEMADE SALVES.
That Are Hcttcr Than Those
I'sually Sold by Llrugg-ist-.
There are a great many excellent
salves which are prepared at home and
are far better than anything to be
found at the ordinary druggist's, for
chapped hands, sunburn or any simple
roughness of the skin. A lettuce cream
is one of the most efOcacious of these.
The healing effects of lettuce are well
commended. Chop enough young
tender lettuce to fill two cups; add it to
a cup of melted mutton tallow. Let
the lettuce cook in the mutton tallow
for about ten minutes; then strain the
cream through a cheesecloth strainer
into a clean earthen bowL A little
essence of violet may be added for per
fume if you wish.
A camphor ice is one of the best
preparations for chapped hands. Take
three drachms of camphor gum, three
drachms ot spermaceti and two ounces
of olive oiL Iut them in a cup on the
stove where they will melt slowly and
form a white ointment. If the hands
are very severely chapped, it may be
necessary to annoint them with this
preparation and put on a pair of soft
kid gloves. Cut out the palms and the j
finger tips of the gloves, however, to i
allow ventilation. The practice of
sleeping in gloves to whiten the hands
is now said by the best authorities to
injure the hands, causing them to i
wrinkle very soon and take on the !
look of old age before they should, be- j
cavse of the want of ventilation. N. j
