This picture is always with her daugh

hard, seamed face and the worn, scar
red hands that have been grave-dust
for many years.
Do we npt owe it to our children to
be as pretty, as possible? We may not
have a feature that the world would
call beautiful, but the little eyes see
deeper than anyone elso, and children
all love pretty things. A mother should
keep herself as wel,l and as neatly
dressed as her means will allow, and
especially should this be the case when
you put yourself in a position to be
compared with other mothers. The
children love to see mamma "look
pretty," and your daintiness is an
added joy to them if noticed by others.
A bright ribbon in pne's hair will be
a perfect delight to tho little eyes,
and a touch of daintiness about the
neck or hands will idealize you to
them as nothing ,elso can. Do not

use hot water and common yellow

rock salt is also a good addition to the

Evie. To prevent milk from boiling
over, tho following is recommended:
Take a crumb of butter and carefully
grease the stew-pan around the upper
inside edge; it is claimed that nothing
will boil over in a pan thus treated.
Try it when boiling maplo syrup or
cooking cereals. To prevent the milk
from burning on the bottom o tho
stew-pan, rinse the pan in cold water
just before putting the milk Jn it.
Business Girl. In taking a note or
other obligation from a person who
can not sign his name, he should be
requested to make his mark. In this
case, any person may write the name,
but the person who gives the note
must make the mark, and in the pres
ence of a disinterested person, one or
more, who must sign the do'curhent as
witness. In some states two "witnesses
are required. ' ' '

A yoke of bias bands or hercules
braid fagoted together is the wisest
way to let down a girl's gored skirt:
the gores may be opened and the last
band or braid of the yoke brought
down and fagoted any desired depth
to give the necessary fullness. A plain
gored skirt that is too tight around
the hips may bo widened by opening
tho seam of each gore and putting In
a band or strip of hercules braid and
allowing it to continue down the seam
to within four inches from the bottom
of the skirt, finishing it off with blunt
points or scroll designs.
Many a growing girl has one hip
much higher than the other, and 'the
home dressmaker finds it difficult to
make a skirt look well. In such cases,
first pin the skirt around the hips
about six inches below the waist-line,
drawing the side up over the highest
hip until it hangs smoothly all around;
then trim off evenly with the waist
line, and take in all seams until the
skirt fits .smooth and even over the
hips and waist. Eaise the two outer
folds of the inverted plait in the back
a quarter of an Inch above tho waist
line, make the fold hang well toward
the back seam, and finish by making
tho bottom of the skirt even.
A long gored skirt may be shortened
to fit the younger girl by turning into
wldo tucks the undesirable extra
length. Begin the tucks about nine
or ten inches from the bottom of tho
skirt; tho little extra under fullness

Tho Sick Child
When it is necessary to administer
medicine to a sick child, do so with as
little fuss as possible. Do not talk
about it beforehand, but get it ready
and have it over as quickly as you can.
Children are sometimes" kept in a state
of perpetual .dread and worry by being
continually reminded that there Is
medicine to do taken. The medicine,
and everything connected with it
should be kept out of sight and mind
of the child until it Ib xeady to bo ad
ministered. The sick room should be
made as cheerful and attractive as
possible, and it is positively cruel to
keep telling the patient that it is "look
ing bad." Suggestion is more than a
fad, and as mind acts on mattei, It is
as well to allow it to act favorable to
recovery by suggesting in every way
possible that the child or adult is well
on the way to regained health. It is
certainly a mistaken kindness to in
dulge a child in the idea that it Is very
