Cut an ajmlo' across the' nliddle
with a sharp knife, cutting as thin
a slice us possible; hold this siico tip
between you and the light, and you
can see in the center' the delicate; flg
ur'o of an apple-blossom, with all, its
pdtals spread; . for-it was from this
lovely pink and white blossom the
apple was formed "a tiny green ball
at first, such as you see in the spring
if you look when the petals have just
fallen. As tho little green apple
grew it kept in its. heart the imago
of tho blossom- its mother and now
that it is ripe, the Jrimge. is. thero;
just us the springtlme-.left it.
For tho Toilet '
"Sister Fannio" asks how, she lhay
get rid of a very unpleasant coat.of
tan. Tho best way was to prevent it.
While it may be "up to date" to have
tho face, nock and- arms red and
deeply browned, it certainly does not
add to tho good looks. of any girl or
woman. A littlo care and covering
up will prevent it.
For shampooing oily, moist hair,
the salts of tartar shampoo is best, v
as it is drying; but it should not be
used of tenor than oncp a. .month, and
a very little olive oiL rubbed into the
scalp (not on tho hair) if it 'should
seem too dry after using. Put two
toaspoonfuls of the salts of tartar in
a gallon of rain water, using no soap,
.aslt forms' its own suds. Never use
more man hub, anu less win ouen
do tho work.
Ammonia should be used sparlng
&$ if at all, in tho bath, as it is vory
drying, and its effect on the skin is
worse than tho hardest water. There
are so many better things that it
peems sensoless to use it at all.
The department of agriculture has
taken a hand in the matter of obesity
cures, and has shown up quite a few
of tho advertisers. Jt is claimed that
obesity is a disease, but the remedy
lias not yet been found. Don't try
the "fakes" that send out such w,on
derful advertisements. Try tho foods
that do not tend to fatten, and take
plenty of sensible exercise,
i An excellent tonic" for tho hair is
made of one quart of bay rum, one
ounce of castor oil, and one ounce of
tincture of cantharides. Apply this
once a day to the, scalp, usjng tho
linger tips to massage, or apply with
a little swab of cloth, parting the hair
to make tho application. This may
bo applied night and 'morning, If the
case Is very bad,
l In using any" cold cream, before
applying powder, tho cream must be
lightly wiped off, leaving only tho
merest skim to hold tho powder;
then use rice powder lightly. AlmoBt
any powder shows if one perspires
freely, as is generally the case in
.worm weather.

Making Your-Own Citro'ij- '

soak three or four hours in' salted
water, then soak in clear water for
one hour. 'Put into a kettle with
enough water to cover, 'and-a tea

first thing to say is that. the garment,

cold; but tha soap must be dissolved
in the water, not rubbed on thogar

rinse in clea" water; then, in 'another
water with. just enough bluing in it

Hints and Helps
When, childien are eating at the
table, it is well to lay a paper over
the cloth to prevent their soiling it.
For luncheon, where there are little
children, the p per may be used on
the table and the cloth kept clean.
Teach the cbild, at the same time, to
keep the' paper clean'Vs though it
was a cloth. s
For th? pfenic lunchepn,- try to
have the liltle wooden plates, which
cost very little, apd can either be
carefully .cleaned .and used a second
time or thrown away. ,
A reader tells us .tc wash and boil
the turnips without peeling, just as
wo do beets, then pull ..the thin Bkin
off, just as we do from tomatoes or
peaches; the thick white skin will
be found tender and sweet, and the
flavor of the venretabla much im
For frying tomatoes, choose firm,
barely-ripe ones, cut into .slices, sea
son with salt and pepper, roll in
bread crumbs, then ln beatqn egg,
and again in crumbs and cook in a
little fat until, barely done, then lift
the slices and serve before they are
soft enough to break. They have an
excellent flavor; they should be bare
ly ripening ana firm and solid.
