For Illfirh-Heeled Slices.
High heels on shoes and slippers lost
their favor with the women simply be
cause they found they could.not xvear

makers know that
the high-heeled shoe
is much preferred
to the low heel In
fact , the higher the
heel the more It is
HEEL ATTACHMENT ] jcei. A Virginia
woman claims that any high-heeled
shoe or slipper , especially , can be made
perfectly safe for the wearer by the
Introduction of a small supporting
plate placed inside the shoe , close to
the heel. This plate is of metal and
curved to conform to the heel of the
foot of the wearer. It is pfaced in
the shoe In combination with the sole ,

"Women True to Themselves.
Mr. John M. Coulter , head of the
department of botany of the Chicago
University , who with his wife and chil
dren was on the ill-fated Republic ,
says that the heroic conduct of the
women was something that can never
be forgotten. When the order came
to put on life preservers the women
put them on as coolly as If they were
shirt waists. There was no fainting ,
no panic and they even joked among
themselves to conceal any fear they
might have as they adjusted the un
usual preservers. They conducted
themselves , he says , in a manner to
make one forever proud of American
womanhood. It gave one an under
standing of the nobility of woman's
nature , he declared , that docs not pre

A nice party to haJFe Is a candy pull.
When inviting the guests ask each

While waiting for the candy to cook

Refreshments may now he served.
After this a game or two of charades

Purpose of Exereiwe.
Exercise should be taken to increase

Stimulate the elimination of waste prod

organs , and to clear the brain and

Put Thought Into Menln.
One mother of growing sons learned
almost too late the folly of so catering
to an Individual peculiarity. The hus
band and father liked neither soups ,
flessert , fish nor srvlad , and the family
meals consisted of a dreary round of
meat , coffee and a vegeuuble. Then the
mother found that her WJ's , dissatis
fied with such plain fare , were seeking
a more varied menu in restaurants and
gay hotels , with none too desirable com

Costs Less to Feed Women.
In a small Philadelphia restaurant
that caters to persons on economy bent
the bill of fare Is headed by this no
tice : "Regular dinner Men , 25 cents ;
women , 15 cents. " "How Is this ? "
asked a chance customer belonging to
the sex most heavily taxed. "You
charge us fellows 10 cents more than
you do the women. What have we
done that we should be so discriminat
ed against ? " "You eat more , " was the
plain rejoinder. "It doesn't cost near
ly so much to feed women as men ,
but we are the first concern in this
part of town that has been brave
enough to say so in plain print. Many
foreign restaurants have recognized
that fact , and have regulated their
charges accordingly. "
Sardon'a Opinion of Women.
"I have the highest opinion of the
fair sex. I consider women superior
to men In almost everything ; they pos
sess the intuitive faculty to an extra
ordinary degree , and may almost al
ways be trusted to do the right thing
in the right place. They are full of
noble instincts , and. though heavily
handicapped by fate , come well out of
every ordeal. You have but to turn to
history to realize the truth of what I
say. " The Strand Magazine.

The worried housekeeper should go
out on the veranda for a few moments ,
take several full breaths of fresh air ,

Takes Pessimistic "Vlvr.
Prof. Hagerty , of the University of
Ohio , said at the meeting of the So
ciological Society in Washington re
cently that educated women did not
marry as early in life as women used
to , that they had fewer children and
the offspring are not as strong. The
State has taken care of the education
of the child , the kitchen is practically
the only survival of the old Industrial
aspect of the home , children being thus
relieved of household duties. The re
sult , along with the tendency to live
In boarding houses and flats , tends to
destroy the solidarity of the home with
out any apparent advantage.
Charming1 Combing : Jacket.
Rather longer In the body than the
usual run of such garments is this fas
cinating combing jacket , , made from
embroidered crepe de chine. There is
no .trimming save two silk frogs for
closing purposes. China silk , challls or
silk muslin with lining , would also
serve for this piece of daintiness.
Protect tlie Finder.
- , Everj- woman who sews or embroid
ers objects to the roughened first finger
of the left hand , which seems impos
sible not to prick. Not only is the \
roughened edge unsightly , but it catches
on the work , especially when doing j
silk embroidery , and is almost impos
sible to keep clean. There is a new
protector for this finger that seems to
protect without getting In the way of
the sewer. It Is made in a specially
prepared glass that does not blunt the
needle , conies in several sizes and , best
of all , Is cheap enough for every sewer

Whatever else fashion hints there la
not the slightest rumor that flesh Is to
be stylish in the near future. There
fore women who are not thin are keep
ing up all kinds of methods to make
them so. Live on noodles , is the cry.
Consequently this diet Is strictly kept
by women who are willing to sacrifice
anything to be thin. The latest remedy ,
however , Is to drink camomile tea with
out sugar , an hour after eating. Thla
is said to cure the most rebellious case
and turn one of barrel shaped proportions
tions into sylphlike lines.
To Clean Shield * .
Many think It is impossible to wash
dress shields In other than cold water.
They should first be dampened with
cold water and covered with white
soap rubbed Into the covering. Put
them into a basin and pour very warm
water over them and let them stand
until the water begins to cool , then
scrub with a stiff brush. Rinse In cold
water and let them gradually dry away
from artificial heat. Do not attempt
to press them.
Dry Scalp Causes Gray Hair.
Nothing will so quickly cause the
hair to turn gray"as an absence of
nourishing oils , and it is for this rea
son that tonics containing such Ingred
ients are invaluable. When there is a
decided tendency to whiteness a formu
la that has.been found useful , If mas
saged nightly Into the head , is one
dram each of terebone , borax and sul
phur and six ounces of lavender water.
Homemade Clothes Hanger.
Excellent shirt waist and coat hang
ers can be made by cutting small barrel
beeps in two. Half-barrel hoops are
the best. Wrap the hoop with cambric
and fasten In the center of same a loop
or wire to hang It up wltii. The ad
vantage of these over the wire ones IP
that they do not crease the garments.
Brinkley , Ark. , Is Wrecked by
Wind and Flames and Other
Towns Are Damaged.
ETTEAL HOMES AHE DESTROYED
Qov. Donag-hey , Appealed to by Vic
tims , Will Go to Scene of Suf
fering Snow in "West.
Reports received in Memphis , Tenn. ,
show that fourteen persons were killed
and fifteen or twenty injured in the
tornado and fire which swept Brinkley ,
Ark. , Mondaj * . Ten of the dead were
white persons and four negroes. The
business section of the town was de
molished and probably SO per cent or
the dwellings were raxed. Other towns
in the eastern part of the State suffered
from the wind and the southern and
western sections of Arkansas also were
swept by tornadoes.
A mass meeting of citizens was held
at Brinkley Tuesday and a telegram
was sent to Governor Donaghey at Lit
tle Rock , urging him to go to Brinkley
and take charge of the situation. Tlie
Governor replied that he would depart
for the scene at once.
Because of wide demoralization a
Cotton Belt passenger train could not
be found and a report was sent out
that it had been blown from the tracks
near Baucum. The officials of the rail
road in Memphis said that the train
was safe from mishap.
Wires are down throughout the
State. Several physicians of Forest
City as well as many nurses were sent
to Briukley at midnight and other
towns rushed aid to the storm-swept
town. Brinkley is in Monroe County
in the eastern part of the State. 11 > has
a population of 3,000 and is at the junc
tion of several important railroads.
A tornado hit Fourche dam , five
miles from Little Rock , at 5 o'clock in
the afternoon , killing a negro boy and
injuring other negroes. Two houses
were demolished and one was consumed
by fire after it had been blown to bits.
The tornado crossed the Arkansas
River at Fourche dam and raised a
spout of water about 200 feet high. It
traveled toward the northeast and
swept a path about sixty yards wide.
The wind was followed by a violent
hail and rain storm.
The same tornado passed into Bau
cum and from there to Kerr , .Lonoke
County , where several homes were de
molished and E. B. Adams , a farmer ,
was seriously injured. He , with his
wife , son and three others , was in the
house at the time. They were buriefl
In the debris. The home of , Dan Wag
ner , a sawmill operator , also was de
stroyed , but he and his wife escaped
with a few bruises. A gin and several
negro cabins were demolished.
All the windows in a train running
between Gurdon and Roster were blown
out. At Malvern the Methodist Church
was destroyed at a loss of $0,000. The
Baptist Church was damaged and a
portion of the Court House was un
