each sldo wcro straps of the same, each
strap held by a steel button. Tho

green cloth. Green has not threat-

having a now color to dress with, I'ntl
such a becoming color, too, has mado
green the most popular shade for

Braided costumes of mohair arc also

Trulnlim School for HniMekennlnr.
A number of philanthropic, clear
headed and warm-hearted women have
started an idea which has in It the
merit of good sense and the elements
of comfort and correct management
for many households.
Training schools for domestic serv
ants hae been a pet project with
philanthropists for many years, but
unfortunately they have not uirncd
out well, and have been temporarily
abandoned by their sponsors, who
gave them up, not permanently, but
only for tho tlmo being, or until some
more favorable conditions presented
It may be questioned If such an In
stitution will o.-er become popular or
self-sustaining. There are many ar
guments against Us success, and many
reasons' why It has no good grounds for
hope of a loug-contluued existence.
And the strongest arguments against
it aro tho nature, education and hr.b
It3 of the class for whose instruction
and benefit it is designed and main
tained. Families whose daughters are likely
to go into domestic service rarely hae
money to spare to pay for educating
them in household matters, even if
they wero willing to admit that the
girls who hud been taught under their
own eyes were susceptible of any Im
provement. An amusing incident In this line is
related of a woman whooe house wait
noted throughout tho community as
the most badly-managed aud ill-kept
of any dwelling In tho place. A lad?

tho girl had had and where she had
learned housekeeping. With the dig
nity of a duchess, tho mother of tho
would-bo employe drew herself up and
answered, "She Is a thorough house

had felt should bo told for tho benefit
of thoso who had suffered as sho did.
"I had been ill sinco girlhood with c
complication of complaints," said Mrs.
Norcn, "never so much as to be confined
long in bed, but I suffered intenso mis

stomach. I folt a constant gnawing

different physicians as dyspepsia and
sympathetic dorangement dependent odi

I had pains iu tho back, sometimes sa
great as to make mo unablo to work,
and frequent bilious uttacks. I nlsa
suffered greatly from constipation, from,
which I never could find permanent re

shoulder blades, which wcro most ex

After my marriago about five years,

physicians and used numerous remedies
but all in vain, until ono day last fall I

was cured and tho other troubles wore
