USE OLD FINERIES
LACE WAISTS AND SILK SKIRTS
FOR NEW BLOUSES.
Practical Woman Can Make Good
Use of Ancient Materials Every
thing Can Go Into Bodice
The woman who has old lace waists
on hand , or a skirt or two in figured
or plain silk , may now find use for
these dilapidated fineries. A little
study of the shop models In both ele
gant and practical blouses for winter
wear will demonstrate how these an
cient materials can he used up , for
All-Over Lace With Marquisette
everything can go into a bodice now
adays , and veiling one stuff with an
other is the madness of the moment
Granted there must be a little good
lace for the yoke and sleeve bottoms ,
all the rest that goes into a corsage ,
made after the present styles , may be
patched to any extent. As for silk ,
all that is necessary is for it to be of
a rich color , for the sheen of red , blue ,
orange , or violet must be visible
LACE BAG LATEST NOVELTY
Great Saving of Time and Lace Ef
fected by Country Woman's
A morning visitor at a country
house found her hostess busy with
mysterious little dimity bags , that
< vere about ten inches square and fas
tened with a draw string. In answer
to her query she'was told that these
were "lace bags , " and that samples
of the kind of laces they contained
would be sewed on the edges like tags.
She was furthermore told that al
though the proceeding might seem
fussy , it was a great saving of time as
well as of lace , for these fragile bits
of trimming get tangled and torn If
put in a box , even if folded at first ,
After a few hunts for a particular
piece the loosened ends seem pos
sessed to knot together , and It re
quires great patience to undo them
without tearing the edges. The sam
ples show just what kinds of lace are
bundled and safely pinned at ends ,
and just the one bag need be opened.
All the bags are put In a-large box ,
labeled "lace , " and this has a particu
lar space In the sewing room closet.
Cracks In Furniture.
Cracks in furniture can be filled in
with beeswax so that the marks will

First-of all , slightly soften the bees
wax until it becomes like putty , then
press it firmly'and neatly into the
cracks and smooth the surface over
with a thin knife. Next sandpaper

work some of the dust into the bees
This gives the work a finished look ,
and when it is varnished the cracks
will have disappeared.
Putty is sometimes used for this
purpose , but it is apt to dry and fall

Moire or silk in a matching color

Quaint Ideas and Expressions Re
corded as Having Been Rendered
by Coroner's Juries.
Referring to a verdict recently
given by a coroner's jury that death
was "caused by the medical evidence. "
the British Medical Journal says :
"This verdict may be added to those
cited in the report of the select com
mittee on death certification , where
Dr. Ogle is quoted as saying : 'One
verdict came before me a little time
ago which was this : "A man died
from stone in the kidney , which stone
he swallowed when laying on a gravel
path in a state of drunkenness. " That
was given as a verdict. I thought
some joke had been played , and I
wrote down about it. and found it was
an absolute fact Another one is
like this : "Child three months old ,
found dead , but no evidence whether
born alive. " ' " These novel judg
ments recall that an up-state newspa
