were badly

description of internal catarrh that I
must have had that also. I suffered
very severely.

f- Catarrh in Bad Form.
Mrs. Jennie Darling , R. P. D. 1 ,

unable to do my work for four years ,

coughed Incessantly , and got so weak

"Peruna , came to my relief and by

I ever took. "

With a Sour Laugh ,
A Chicago editor has brought from
London an amusing story about Hum
phry Ward.
" 'Humphry Ward , " he said , was in
his bachelor days , a really well-known
art critic. But now !
"I met Humphry Ward at a dinner
In Soho , and he said to me , with a
sour laugh :
" 'When a girl wants to retire from
the world and be lost In oblivion , she
has to enter a nunnery. But a man ,
to achieve the same end , need only
marry a famous -woman. ' "
Appreciation of good accomplished
helps more than much advice on the
oed yet to be done.
Taking Tonics , and Built Up on
Right Food.
The mistake is frequently made 01
trying to build up a worn-out nervous
system on so-called tonics drugs.
New material from which to rebuild
wasted nerve cells is what should be
supplied , and this can be obtained
only from proper food.
"Two years ago I found myself on
the verge of a complete nervous col
lapse , due to overwork and study , and
to illness in the family , " writes a Wis
consin young mother.
"My friends became alarmed be
cause I grew pale and thin and could
not sleep nights. I took various tonics
prescribed -by physicians , but their
effects wore off shortly after I
stopped taking them. My food did
not seem to nourish me and I gained
no flesh nor blood.
"Reading of Grape-Nuts , I de
termined to stop the tonics and see
what a change of diet would do. I
ate Grape-Nuts four times a day ,
with cream and drank milk also , went
to bed early after eating a dish of
"In about two weeks I was sleeping
soundly. In a short time gained 20
pounds in weight and felt like ) a
different woman. My little daughter
whom I was obliged to keep out of
school last spring on account of
chronic catarrh has changed from a
thin , pale , nervous child to a rosy ,
healthy girl and has gone back to
-school this fall.
"Grape-Nuts and fresh air were the
only agents' used to accomplish the
happy results ? '

New Headpieces Have Discarded the
Suggestion of the Practical and
Offer no Protection What
ever From the Cold.
Winter hats , intended for evening
or other dressy wear , have discarded
the suggestion of the material. They
are strictly ornamental head-pieces
and take no notice of the element of
protection from the cold. Except for
the prevalent introduction of fur , and
the material of which the body of the
hat Is made , one might consider them
designed for summer wear.
Shapes , save the day for brims still
droop In a becoming and sheltering
way. Velvets , nets and laces are
called Into use for the bulk of trim
mings stuffs , while ostrich plumes and
flowers add the finishing touches.
The hats shown here are types of
winter millinery In which laces are
used for decoration. Many dress hats
are made entirely of lace or not. In
these a band of fur about the crown ,
a flat bow of fur or borders of fur on
ribbon or silk drapery , give the touch
that speaks of winter.
In Fig. 1 a hat of heavy white satin
is overlaid with a coarse silk net and
lace of Russian mesh. It Is trimmed
with a collar of small ostrich tips ,
the sort known as "Heads. " In the
model they are white. This is not a
difficult hat to make and would be
pretty in colors with black lace over-
'lay. '
Fig. 2 shows a large hat of velvet ,
with an "aeroplane bow" of lace. In
this case it is a plaited fan with wire
supports. A velvet collar and a small
Alsatian bow at the front finish the
pretty mode. Light felt hats are ef
fective trimmed in this way.
In Fig. 3 a beautiful hat in shell-
pink corded silk is shown , with a dra
pery , of lace made of a circular piece
which Is tacked over the shape. Four
beautiful plumes are mounted at the
left side and are the same color as
the silk.
Various Attempts From Time to Time
to Banish or Supersede It
Have Failed.
From time to time attempts are
made to banish or supersede the wed
ding veil ; but , in spite of all objec
tions , it still persists in the favor of
the bride/ who is apt to be sentiment
al rather than reasonable. The way
of wearing it , however , has been
largely changed ; many brides now
wear the veil as a sort of cap , not
falling over the face at all , but fasten
ed back with a circlet of flowers. In
front it reaches only to the knees , but
In back to well below the ankles.
Tulle , except for those who have
rare and beautiful old lace , is succeed
ing lace in favor ; perhaps because
there is no danger of having part of
the design ornament one's nose or
eye ! A soft tulle veil , properly draped ,
fastened by invisible pearl-headed
pins and falling over a coronet of
jewels or of blossoms , is as pretty a
sight as any wedding guest could hope
to see.
Dress Trimming.
A * charming Paris model for an aft
ernoon gown was seen recently , which
depended for its adornment entirely
upon a sort of fagoting of self-mate
rial. The gown was a light fawn-
colored challls , and on tunic , under
skirt and girdle and down the front
of the blouse the material was slash
ed and reconnected by crossed inter i
sections of the challis , rolled tight in
to tubular pieces and sewed * to
straight bands so as to. give the ap
pearance of fagoting , or of catstltch.

Cashmere fn Dull Shade of Tan Is Rec
ommended for Garment Shown
Here Is a pretty frock for a youn&
lady of eight summers or so. It is
made of cashmere in a dull shade of
tan and trimmed with embroidery In
self-tone , with a touch of red. The
front of the blouse is laid In a cen
ter box plait , with two tucks at each
side , the back has merely the two
tucks on either side of the closing.
The sleeves and blouse are in one ,
the band of embroidery which outlines
the neck extending over the shoulders ,
in a pointed tab. The skirt is the
conventional side-plaited affair , the
belt and ct 2a of the embroidery. The
hat worn is of soft tan felt , with trim
mings of dark red velvet ribbon.
Greatly Aids the Amateur Dressmaker
in Keeping Gores and
Plaits in Place.
The skirt strap , ambiguous as it
sounds , is no relation to the shawl-
strap ! It is simply the little stitched
strap -of self-fabric that holds the
pleats of the skirt in place. . You will
see it appearing on all the new mod
els for heavy cloth skirts ; for fash
ion has said , "Narrow ! " and narrow
it must be. There are usually two
straps on each side of the skirt , al
most meeting , and sewed on a little
below the knees. Sometimes , when
there is a pleated blouse ( and it is a
three-piece suit or a one-piece cos
tume ) the straps are repeated over
the pleats or , again , on the sleevs.
Certainly they are a boon to the
amateur dressmaker who finds trou
ble in keeping gores and pleats where
they should be ; they save labor after
ward in cleaning and pressing , and
they give a natty , tailored appearance
to the smart cloth gown.
Simplicity is Good Taste.
Think of the woman whose house ,
whose appearance , whose conversa
tion creates the best impression , and
you will realize that absolute simplic
ity is the secret.
Remember this when selecting your
clothes , decorating your house , also
when you meet strangers on your holi
Unfortunately simplicity is not al
ways cheap. You will often have to
pay more for the hat of simple lines ,
the frock of fine material and ex
quisitely simple design than you will
tor something more ornate and dash

Father ' ' Facetious
O'Leary's Rejoinder
to John Philpot Curran an Ex
ample of Real Wit.
One day the famous John Philpot
Curran , who was also very partial to
the said corned mutton , did me the
honor to meet him. To enjoy the so
ciety of such men was an intellectual
treat. They were great friends and
seemed to have a mutual respect for
each other's talent , and , as it may
easily be Imagined , O'Leary versus
Curran was no bad match.
One day after dinner Curran said to
him : "Reverend father , I wish you
were St. Peter. "
"And why , counselor , would you wish
that I were St. Peter ? " asked
"Because , reverend father , In that
case , " , said Curran , "you would have
the keys to heaven , and you could let
me in. "
"By my honor and conscience , coun
selor , " replied the divine , "it would be
better for you that I had the keys of
the other place , then I could let you
out. "
Curran enjoyed the joke , which he
admitted had a good deal of justice in
it. From Kelly's Remeniscences.
"Just about two years ago , some
form of humor appeared on my scalp.
The beginning was a slight itching but
It grew steadily worse until , when I
combed my hair , the scalp became
raw and the ends of the comb-teeth
would be wet with blood. Most of the
time there was an intolerable itching ,
In a painful , burning way , very much
as a bad , raw burn , If deep , will itch
and smart when first beginning to
heal. Combing my hair was positive
torture. My hair was long and tan
gled terribly because of the blood and
scabs. This continued growing worse
and over half my hair fell out. I was
in despair , really afraid of becoming
totally bald.
"Sometimes the pain was so great
that , when partially awake , I would
scratch the worst places so that my
finger-tips would be bloody. I could
not sleep well and , after being asleep
a short time , that awful stinging pain
would commence and then I would
wake up nearly wild with the torture
A neighbor said it must be salt rheum.
Having used Cuticura Soap merely as
a toilet eoap before , I now decided to
order a set * of the Cuticura Remedies
Cuticura Soap , Ointment and Pills.
I used them according to directions
for perhaps six weeks , then left off ,
as the disease seemed to be eradi
cated , but toward spring , eighteen
months ago , there was a slight re
turn of the scalp humor. I com
menced the Cuticura treatment at
once , so had very little trouble. On ,
my scalp I used about one half a cake
of Cuticura Soap and half a box of
Cuticura Ointment in all. The first
time I took six or seven bottles of Cu
ticura Pills and the last time three
bottles neither an. expensive or te
dious treatment. Since then I have
had no scalp trouble of any kind.
Standing up , with my hair unbound , it
comes to my knees and had it not been
for Cuticura I should doubtless be
wholly bald.

timonial and I take pleasure in writing
It , hoping my experience may help
