DIET TO BLAME
FOR THE HIVES
Wrong Food Is Cause of
Many Other Ailments.
By EDITH M. BARBER
CERTAIN foods which score the
best as far as nutritive value
is concerned occasionally produce
disturbing symptoms when eaten by
some persons. Persons of this type
are said to be sensitive to certain
foods or to have food idiosyncra
This sensitiveness may be acute
or mild. The symptoms may be a
rash, asthma or a less acute form oi
nasal disturbance. s Usually the of
fending food -belongs to the protein
division. Eggs and milk are often
the offenders. Sometimes peas,
beans and whole grains, all of which
contain some protein, produce the
same effect. Shellfish and straw
berries, although the latter are low
In protein, are also often to blame
for hives and digestive upsets.
Usually food idiosyncrasies shew
themselves in infancy. There are
cases, however, which develop in
later years, especially during peri
ods of nerve strain. Fortunately,
however, these conditions are usual
Sometimes sensitiveness may be
reduced and sometimes cured by
giving minute but gradually in
creasing quantities which eventual
ly create an immunity. This is ex
ceedingly important in the case of
children when milk causes what is
known as an allergy. It is also im
portant in the case of eggs, because
so many ajshcs contain them as one
of the ingredients. Shellfish and
strawberries may be avoided easily
if they cause trouble, but eggs and
milk may be present when it is not

Many chintres bold in design and
brilliant in color are appealing be
cause" they are decorative in them
selves. Their strik’ing quality is,
alas, their fault. A patterned fab
ric does not have the same status
as a piece of furniture or even as
an accessory in a room. It always
becomes a part of 'some other de
sign—a curtain for a window, a
cover for a chair—and should be
plainly subsidiary to it if it is not
to look overbearing and soon be
come tiresome. On the other hand
the patterns used in a large room
and on large chairs and davenports
are lost if they are too delicale.
What Brush for What
When selecting a brush for apply
ing shellac, choose a bristle brush;
for japan colors, a squirrel hair or
camel's hair brush will leave the
smoothest surface. For lacquer,
use flowing brushes made of ox
hair, fitch or badger. When apply
ing paint and varnish, use soft flat
brushes of Chinese bristles, fitch or
badger. Keep a varnish brush for
If you wish to obtain an eggshell
gloss by rubbing, simply pour small
amounts of paraffin oil on the furni
ture and then sprinkle fine pow
dered pumice stone over it. Rub
well with rags using long straight
strokes. When you have the de
sired finish, carefully clean away
all trace of pumice and oil.
