THE FALLS CITY TRIBUNE , FRIDAY , NOVEMBER 16 , 1906.
Suggestions for the Treatment 01
Different Beds and What Ma
terials to Use.
A very pretty one was recently
made from a linen sheet. A hem six
inches wide wns turned up on three
Hides of it , and hem-stitched. A slml-
Dle scallop was then worked nil around
it on the double cdgo and cut out.
A dcsJgu showing hunches of chryK-
. nthcroums nnd leaves , joined by a
running design of ribbon , was mndo
exactly to fit the top of the bed
anil a similar design was put across
the upper end to go over the bolster
toll. The work wns done in heavy ,
whlto mercerized cotton the ribbon
being darned in , and the flowers and
leaves heavily stuffed nnd worko'l ' in
For a yellow and white room the
ni > rcal was made of six yards of plain
yellow wash material , 30 inches wide ,
costing eight cents a yard. This was
rut into six pieces , each one yard
pqtmrc , and joined together , tnrec
nieces on each side , with insertion
nbout three inches wide. In thn cen
ter of each square wns worked n con
Kor an old-fashioned four-post ma-
hognay bed a handsome India cotton
print was used. This came 12 feet
Jong and six wide. The ground \vas
white , with gay red and hluo figures
of hirds and llowers across the two
ends. Ihc pattern took the form of
a wide horder. These two ends were
tut off and sewed along the upper pirt
of the two sides , the square openings
at the corners being left for the posts.
The whole spread was edged with
Rome old lace and insertion ripped
from discarded curtains.
Another sprea-l was made from Irish
unbleached linen , which comes 90
inches wide. This spread was made
three and onc-l.alf yards long so as
to allow of an extra piece to put ovnr
the bolster loll. The whole surface
was worked in a Mount Molltsh de-
Rlgn , using thn heavier grades of knit-
ling cotton ; the edges of this spread
"were hemstitched , but could be scal
A FEW HEALTH HINTS.
Green Vegetables Highly Recom
mended and Hot Water a Great
Aid to Digestion.
Green vegetables and salads will
counteract a tendency to pimples ana
other skin eruptions. Sufferers from
eczema should eat uparingly of fruit ,
which , as a rule , contains too much
acid to be suitable for them.
The best toilet preparation in the
world is plain hot water. Drink a
glass of it every night if you want a
tyood digestion , clear complexion and
a good sleep.
If the hair is in a very weakened
ttate , as it is alter illness or fever ,
brushing , clipping and vigorous sh&m-
l > oos are too severe treatment for
Massage the scalp tor five minutes
every day , or for half an hour twice a
week , rubbing a very little vaseline
into the roots of tinhair. . Let Iho
hair hang loose and free as often as
possible and dress it as simply as pos-
Hlble , so that much handling will not
lie necessary. Give it a rest. Its weak
condition demands that It ho left
alone Instead of being fussed over.
In spite of the danger of the old-
Inshioned punishment of a box on the
cars , it is one which is often inllic'.ed
on troublesome children by their iar- *
vntfi , without the smallest regard of
consequences. The parents are ig
norant , not cruel , hut they ought co
know that such a punishment Is likc-
Jy to cause lifelong injury. Deafness
js probably the most frequent 111 re-
Milt of ear-boxing , but it may cause
injury to the brain and insanity.
Stewed Veal with Barley.
Put a knuckle of veal In a saucepan
with a bit of butter the size of a wal
nut , and fry the meat a nice brown all
over. Just cover the meat withqulte
boiling water , put in a teacupful of
barley , two heads of celery , cleaned
smd cut in inch lengths , two carrot ? ,
two turnips , two largo onions , a sprig
f lemon thyme , marjoram and two
nago leaves. Let this simmer for ' .we-
hours ; put the meat on a hot dish ,
j-eason the vegetables with pepper and
all , pour over the meat , and serve
'With a tablespoonful of finely chopped
varsley sprinkled over.
To Ecinove a Grease Spot.
Here is a new way to remove a
crease spot , which answers excellent-
Jy : First place a double thickness of
Dotting paper on an ironing board.
.Lay the material on this and sponge
well with benzine. Now put two more
thicknesses of blotting paper on top
and Iron with a moderately hot Iron.
Hemember that benzine is inflamma
ble , so don't do this near a fire or
light , and see that your flatiron isn't at
Present for a Baby's Basket
You can make a very dainty little
present for the baby's basket by tak
ing ribbon an inch wide in pink or
blue , nnd sewing It in four long loops ,
leaving enough ribbon at one end to
form a rosette at the top. On each
loop place a crocheted silk ring , -about
Iho size o a quarter , and attach to
these rings safety pins of various sizes.
This is easily made , inexpensive and
always a welcome gift.
Little Moire Coats.
Moire is newer than taffeta for the
little silk coat that is to be worn Una
spring. Faille , which always comes in
with moire , is used for the same nur-
pose. The coats range all the way
from little postage stamp Jackets to
be worn with corselet skirts through
the ordinary eton and the little eack
coat to all lengths and degrees of
teats with skirU.
MAKING A GOOD LAWN.
The Soil Must Bo Moist and Contain a
of Clay ,
The department of agriculture lias
in press a number of farmers' bulle
tins which should appeal to the farm
er. One of these , which will bo Farm
ers' Uullctin , No. 248 , is written by L.
C. Corbett , the horticulturist in charge
of the Arlington experiment station ,
on "Tho Lawn. " Mr. Corhctt con
tends that the lawn is a signal of
the inner soul of the householder ,
showing an appreciation of beautiful
home surroundings. A lawn is the
accomplishment of every effort on the
part of man to beautify the surround
ings of his abiding place. The great
increase of interest in suburban and
rural lifo has caused a corresponding
increase of interest in matters per
taining to the making and mainte
nance of lawns. Suburban railroads ,
the extension of electric lines into
the country and the return of man to
natural ways of living are all features
contributing to the growing interest in
matters pertaining to lawn making.
Mr. Corbett believes that a lawn
hould he beautiful and at the same
ime useful. Its beauty depends on
ho contour of the land , the color and
exture of the grass , and the uniform
ly of the turf. The use of the lawn
s to provide a suitable setting for
rchltectural adornment and land-
The ideal soil for grasses best suit-
d for lawn making Is one which is
uoist and contains a considerable per-
entage of clay. A strong clayey loam
T a sandy loam underlaid with a clay
oil is undoubtedly the nearest ap-
> roach to an ideal soil for a lawn ,
ince the lawn Is a prominent feature
t is hardly possible to make the soil
'or the lawn too rich. Stable manure
losed and rotted and which is as free
is possible from detrimental weed
iccds is undoubtedly the best material
o use in producing the desired for-
ility of the soil. After a lawn has
cen established and it has , gone into
winter quarters , it is well to give the
r'oung grass a mulch of well decom-
osed stable manure which .shall not
be heavy enough to disfigure or mar
he lawn , but should be so fine nnd
ivcll decomposed that it will be curried
beneath the surface of the grass by the
alns and snows of winter , leaving
cry little rough or unsightly matter
o ho raked off in the spring. Prairie
FOR BEAUTY OF THE EYES
Wonderful What Happy Results Fol
low on a Protracted Wnlk in
the Open Air.
It was a matter ot surprise to Einer-
fcon that the following little piece of
: ulvice by Do Qulncey should not have
attracted more attention : "The depth

ingly with the state of the stomach ,

ing as he had noted it in the eyes of
the poet Wordsworth. "I have , " ho
says , "seen Wordsworth's eyes some
times affected powerfully in this re
spect. His eyes are not under any
circumstances bright , lustrous , or
piercing , but after a long day's toll
In walking , I have seen them assume
an appearance the most solemn and
spiritual that it is possible for the hu
man eye to wear. The light which re
sides in them Is at no time a superfi
cial light , but. under favorable acci

fact , It is more entitled to be held

fiea' a light radiating from some spir
itual world , than any that can be
named. " Good Health.
The Old Morning1 Glory.
The old-fashioned but ever popular
morning glory still claims a promi
nent place as a quick-growing and
beautiful vine for either foliage or
llowers. Appearing every morning In
all the richest shades of white , blur
and red , often varlogatod and striped ,
the silky flowers add much to thf
beauty of the home and materially in
crease the charms of summer and au
tumn mornings. The morning glory
has recently undergone some improve
ment at the hands of the professional
llorlsts , but it is an easily cultivated
Jiower and should ue a part of ihe
tloral display of every home.

luw as it contains n.i opiates or other
harmful drugs , and we recommend it
as a safe remedy for children and
adults. For -ale by all druggists.
An Open Look.
Keep your inner self so free
from thoughts that need cover
ing1 as to be able to look clearly
and unflinching out upon your
dailj' life. A clear , outrcaching
look , bright and unsullied , is a
good recommendation. Some
boys and young men get so
steeped in hidden sins that they
can keep this open look even after
the waters of their soul are stirred
with dark wings , but this is poss
ible only by long and careful
tutelage. Do not try your hand
at it , for ten to one you will fail ,
and the ones you try so hard to
have think differently will think
the exact truth , and set you
down , not only as a wrongdoer ,
but as a deceitful wrongdoer ,
who. everyoiip knows , is still
more despised b } ' honest people.
