The importance of correct
spelling is not likely to be over
estimated. How best to teach
-pelling in the public schools
s a question which has been
very much discussed , and about
bich there is a variety of
tpinions. It is taught differ-
itly now from what it was in
the old days , and the question
; whether the rising generation
ran spell better than its an-
cestors. If children could only
be made to appreciate how es-
.sential the ability to spell cor
rectly is , and how much it
would be worth to them in
future life , they would all strive
for excellence in this branch.
It is worth while to stimulate
interest in it wherever possible ,
and no better way is found than
through the old-fashioned spell
ing bee and spelling down in
Return has been made to that
ancient practice in tne public
schools of Cleveland , and the
authorities there are quoted as
saying that the children in the
elementary grades spell six
times better than the } ' did be.
fore. If it has worked as well
as that in Cleveland , it will
work well elsewhere and de
serves to be added to the cur
riculum. The value of the spell
ing bee is simply that it makes
a contest and a competition of
it , in which children are anxious
to excell , and will study more
for that than tor the mere purpose -
pose ot learning their lessons.

Most salads should be dressed just
before serving , whether French dress

Celery should not oven bo washed
long before serving , as It becomes
rusty. Potato salad takes up largo
quantities of oil , and need to bo very
well mixed with whatever dressing
Salads made of greens should al
ways be served crisp and cold. Can

tables are well utilized In salads , but
are best mixed with French dressing ,
and should bo placed In the refrigerator

A dinner set usually consists of
from 100 to 150 pieces. All large
houses carry a number of stock pat-
teins , so that one may replace at
any time a half-dozen or dozen plates
or cups and saucers. These stock
patterns arc not confined to the
cheaper grades , but many of them are
artistic In design and of the best
quality of domestic and impoited
china. Dluo and white Is particular
ly attractive for breakfast. It Is no
economy to buy a cheap ware , and
the simpler the color and design ,
the better. Gold Is expensive. It Is
well to choose china which has the
name of the maker on the bottom. If
one lives in a large city , where spe
cial sales are held once or twice a
year , great bargains may be picked up.
To clean and brighten a shabby
carpet , cut an ounce of yellow soap
Into small squares , and make Into a

Add to this a quart of water and one
ounce of borax. Place the mixture

then remove It , and when qulto cold
add an ounce each of alcohol and
ammonia and half an ounce of gly
cerin. Wlpo over a small portion of
the carpet at a time , and rub vigor
ously with a clean flannel ( which
should bo repeatedly turned as It gets
soiled ) dipped In the mixture , until
all the spots arc removed and the
color revived. . When you have fin

Lavender linen when combined
with white linen and lace Is very be
coming to those who can wear this
delicate color. A pretty dress of this
color was made In a jumper suit with
all edges piped with whlto linen. The
front and back part of the waist , in
stead of being closed with straps run
ning from side to sldo , was fastened
together with plain panels , the front
one being joined at the bust line and
buttoned to the jumper straps with
three whlto pearl buttons on each
Bide. The back was of a similar de
sign. This was worn over a whlto
gulmpe , the full , short lace alcoves be
ing capped with whlto piped Chinese
sleoves. The skirt was nine-gored
with no trimming.
For a cottage on the lake or sea
shore the deep porch may bo made a
picture in deep blues and the brilliant
scarlet of Turkey reds. This scarlet
tone may always ho used effectively
in porch furnishings , especially when
the scarlet and whlto East India cot
tons are in combination. Delft blue

the floor a blue and white "hit or

Braiding Thin Goods.
The best way to In aid thin materi

heavy paper or cardboard and baste
the material over the stamped pat

THE VERY BEST THE VERY CHEAPEST
Social Intercourse as an Educator.
it is astonishing how much
you can learn from people in
social intercourse when you
know how to look at them
rightly. But it is a fact that
you can only get a great deal
out ol them by giving them a
great deal of yourself. The
more you radiate yourself , the
more magnanimous you are , tne
more generous ot yourself , the
the more you lling yourself out
to them without reserve , the
more you will get back.
You must give much in order
to get much. The current will
not set toward you until it goes
out from you. About all you
get from others is a rellex of
tne currents from yourself.
The more generously you give ,
the more you get in return.
You will not receive if you give
out stingily , narrowly , meanly.
You must give of yonrselt in a
whole-hearted , generous way ,
or you will receive only stingy
rivulets , when you might have
had great dyers and torrents of
blessings , v
A man who might have been
symmetrical , well-rounded , had
he availed himself of every op
portunity of touching life along
all sides , remains a pygmy in
everything except his own little
specialty , because he did not
cultivate his social side.
It is always a mistake to miss
an opportunity of meeting with
our kind , and especially of mix
ing with those about us , he
cause we can always carry away
something of value. It is
through social intercourse that
our rough corners are rubbed
off , that we become polished and
It is possible to get a benefit
out of social life which cannot
be gotten elsewhere. If you go
into it with a determination to
give it something , to make it
a school for self-improvement ,
for calling out your best social
qualities , for developing the
latent brain cells , which have
remained dormant for the lack
of exercise , you will not find
society either a bore or unprofit
able. But you must give it
something , or you will not get

Why do you go ?
The Rev , Dr. Cobb , pastor of
St. Ethelburger's c h u r c h ,
Bishopsgate , England , is re
sponsible for a discussion now
making the rounds of the news
papers. Dr. Cobb inquired , in
a London cable dispatch , into
the reasons responsible for
church going , saying that most
of his parishoners went to
church on Sunday because of
habit , others through fear of
public opiuion , some to show
their cloths , hut none seemed
to go to hear the sermon.
_ A number of Chicago preach
ers have been getting reasons
from the members of their con
gregation for church going ,
and the Chicago Tribune gives
a concrete reply from the Rev.
R. Keene , pastor ot the Garfield -
field Boulevard Presbyterian
church , in Chicago , who has
been conducting an investiga
tion. Dr. Kcene says that out
of 100 men questioned fifteen
said that they attend church in
order to hear the music. Fif
teen because they wanted to set
a good examgle to their child
ren. Fifteen through force of
habit. Fifteen because they
wanted to please their wives.
Fifteen because it helped their
business. Ten because they
had promised dying parents to
do so. Ten because they were
not sure as to the future and
did not want to run any risk of
going to hell , although they
did not believe in such a place.
Five because they believed in
the teachings of the bible and
enjoyed the sermons.
Dead in a Nebraska Storm.
Plnttsmouth , Neb. , July 7. A
severe wind , rain and Imil storm
struck Plattemouth last night nnd
resulted in at least one death nnd
much loss of property. The rain
fall amounted to n cloudburst. It
caved in foundations nnd cnrried
nwny suinll buildings ami board
sidewalks. Several Italians camp

river were surrounded by water
nnd were reported drowned , but
later nssurances were given that
they had been rescued except one
hey , whose name is unknown.

Pinu was visited by a heavy wind
last night nnd much damage done.
With few exceptions all the fronts
of store building were blown in.
The Methodist church was tie-
molished nnd the roof of the round

in the town were demolished or

TUc Unwritten Law.
From the Now York World.
Southern newspaper comment
upon the Loving trial shows that
in no part of the country does
public opinion fail to appreciate
the menace of the "unwritten
law" to the hard-won fruits of
law and order in civilisation.
The Columbia State says that
the unwritten law is a , "terrible
strain upon civilisation" and that
"where the courts practically
give warrant to procedure that
* * * makes it easy fora weaker
or vicious woman to have one
man sacrificed to save another ,
then it becomes a monstrous
evil. " In '
Judge Loving's own
state , the Richmond News-Leader
sayu that "life in unsafe , the
law against murder is almost nul
lified and the state is in the ig-
nominous position of being un
able to protect her own citizens.1
These are considerations not
for a section but for a nation.
New York may not plume her
self over Virginia so long as
Harry Thaw's case remaines undecided
The trouble with the unwritten
law is that it is unwritten. It
proves too much. There arc no
limits set to its vagaries. In the
Loving case it justified a father
in shooting a man who gave a
drink of whiskey to his daughter ,
the jury having assured Judge
Loving that no assault was com
mitted. In the Thaw case un
written law is cited to justify
Thaw in shooting the alleged se
ducer of his wife , who had also
been his mistress , although the
offence was committed years be
fore the marriage and was known
to Thaw at that time , In the
Strothers case it sets free a man
who killed his sister's husband
for the suspected intention to de
sert her after marriage. In the
Birdsong case it is invoked to
free a woman who shot a man
because she desired to have him
shot a demand so monstrous
that 200 southern women of the
vicinity conquered their repug
nance to such publicity to ask
that he be not released.
The southern newspapers which
the World has quoted are right.
There is no law but the written
law. The unwritten law is an
