would lie uimislnx If It were not
pathetic to note with how little skill
wo conform to the peculiarities of
the members of our family. Why cannot -
not we learn to take their idlosyncru-
dca for granted ? Given certnlu people
and certain conditions , we know jus > t
what to expect. It works out In al
most every case as accurately as a
problem In algebra , and yet we never
fall to feel surprised and exasperated
when the course of our friends Is not
what we should miip out for them. People
ple live together twenty , thirty , forty
years , and yet do not learn to take
each other for granted. The Indolence
or wasted energy ; the lavlshness or
parsimony of our companions , produce
In uthe same sensations with the
same degree of Intensity as If It were
nil a new story , and In too nuiny cases
calls forth the same Indignant and use
less remonstrances.
It Is not always as Important as we
think that people should direct their
lives and affairs along the lines which
we deem wisest and best. Our methods
may not have all the merit we claim
for them. But even granting that they
have , we cannot compel their accept
ance by other people. Our friends
have the same conlldonce In their own
Judgment that we have In ours.
The fact that It Is so hard to set
aside our special prejudices ought to
make us more lenient toward others.
Instead of resorting to remonstrance ,
criticism or ridicule , If we would but
good naturedly adapt ourselves to the
harmless whims of those with whom
we nre associated , we should add great
ly to their comfort and happiness. We
an like to do things In our own way.
imd since we cannot always Indulge
oor own wishes , why not do what we
can toward gratifying the wishes of
others ? Alice Josephine Johnson , In
Good Housekeeping.

It I'lcnHCH a Woman ,
The greatest secret of domestic hap
piness lies In husband and vrlfo pleasIng -
Ing each other. It is quite as ensy to
say pleasant , graceful things as dis
agreeable ones. It Is far sweeter to a
wife to have tender words from her
husband than it was to have them
from him before marriage husband In
the role of lover has a double value In
a wife's estimation. It pleases a wo
man to know her husband says pleas
ant things to her because he means
thorn , and not as flattery. Flattery
never pleases her. It pleases her to bo
told by him that lie needs her that his
happiness depends upon her compan
ionship. To feel that her efforts to
please are successful , and are appre
ciated accordingly , will stimulate most
women to greater endeavors. Woman's

girl Is coming to this truth that
the nation's greatest need Is spiritual

will be the spiritual woman. It IH not

We are to be surfeited this summer
with hip yokes and flounces. The yokes
are usually of lace , and Instead of
running around the skirt In the usual
fashion the lower line of the yoke Is
broken by lines of lace running from
the yoke to the bottom of the skirt. Fre-
queutly the yoke runs Into a plastron
effect In front. Shirred yokes will be
seen on some of the summer gowns
made of thin material , and very young
girls will wear yokes of smocking. So
much trimming will be Introduced that
there may be some bewilderment
among even the wisest women as to
the decoration of their summer gowns ,
but It Is always wise to remember that
the best rule to follow is "Uhu trim
ming only when there Is an excuse for
It" There Is nothing artistic about a
gown trimmed with bows and patches
of lace or ribbon set on at random.
A lovely house gown In lavender
crepe yolku-dottcd In white Is one of
the gowns in a bridal ontllt. The trail
ing skirt Is finished with a graduated
flounce and given an additional Hare
by clusters of tiny tucks set in all
about the top where the flounce Is
sewn to the hklrt. Abovp the flounce
there are two rows of heliotrope velvet
ribbon. The bodice Is tucked and
bloused In front. It opens In the bank
and is drawn Into a girdle of heliotrope
velvet and gold gauze. In front the
girdle Is drawn low. It Is wide In the
back , the points at top and bottom giv
ing a very slender waist. The sleeves
reach the elbows and are finished with
full puffs of gold gansto shrouded in
heliotrope chiffon and fulled into vel
vet bauds. The neck Is cut out In a
shallow V , both back and front.

that they should not hung forward

there Is little If any advantage to be
gained by allowing the paintings on the

whole , the cheapest , manner of going
to work Is to have a picture molding

The average buyer finds the prices of
the genuine Oriental rugs much be
yond his means. For Instance , many
could pay , say . ? ' - ' < " > for a good-sized
square rug , or $15 for the .smaller ob

auctions ( where some knowledge Is
necessary ) are good ones to be had at
anything like such prli-cs. Morels rugs

A woman is sick Bomo disease peculiar to her sex is fast
developing in her system. She goes to her family physician
and tells liim a story , but not the whole story.
She holds back something , loses her head , becomes agi
tated , forgets what she wants to say , and finally conceals
what she ought to have told , and this completely mystifies
the doctor.
Is it a wonder , therefore , that the doctor fails to cure the
disease ? Still wo cannot blame the woman , for it is very em
barrassing to detail some of the symptoms of her suffering ,
oven to her family physician. This is the reason why
hundreds of thousands of women are now in corre
spondence \vith Mrs. JL'inkham , at Lynn , Mass. To
her they can give every symptom ; BO that when she is ready
to advise them she is in possession of more facts from her
correspondence with the patient than the physician can
possibly obtain through a personal interview.
Following wo publish a letter from a woman showing the
result of a correspondence with Mrs. Pinkham. All such
loiters arc considered aoHOiuteiy coiimicnimi by
Mrs , I'iiilclmm , and are never published in any way or
manner without the consent in writing of the patient ; hut
hundreds of women are so grateful for the health which Mrs.
Pinkham and her medicine have been able to restore to them
that they not only consent to publishing their letters , but
write asking that this bo done in order that other women
who suffer may bo benefited by their experience.
Mrs. Ella Rice , Chelsea , Wis. , writes :
"DEAnMns. PINKIIAM : For two years I was troubled with falling1
and Inflammation of the womb. I suffered very much with bearing-down
pains , headache , backache , and was not ublo to do anything. What 1
endured no one knows but those who have Buffered as I did. I could
hardly drag myself across the floor. 1 doctored with the physicians of this
town for three months and grew worse Instead of better. My husband
and friends wished me to writu to you , but I had no faith in patent medi
cines. At last I became so bad that I concluded to ask your advice. I
received an answer at once advising mo to take your Vegetable Compound ,
and 1 did bo. Ueforo 1 had taken two bottles I fult better , and after I had
taken live bottles there was no happier woman on earth , for I was well
ugaiu. I know that your Vegetable Compound cured me. and I wls > h and
advise every woman who suffers as I did to try Lydla E. Plnkbam's Vege-
tnbla Compound. Believe me always grateful for the recovery of my
health. " Mas. ELLA HICK , Chel&ea , Wis.
