MEAN FLINGS AT EDITORS.
Tributes by Lafcadio Hearn to Class
ef Workers He Disliked.
"Lafcadio Hearn, that wonderful
writer, worked on newspapers in his
youth." said a publisher, "and the
ruthless way his studies were changed,
cut and butchered was a great woe
to his heart
"In after years Hearn took a mali
cious joy in collecting stories about
editors editors and their superior
and omniscient way with manuscript.
"One of his stories was of an editor
to whom a subscriber said:
" "I enjoyed that poem on the three
ages cf man in to-day's paper, Mr.
Sheers; I enjoyed it immensely. Do
you know, though, I thought it was
originally written the seven ages of
"So it was, sir; so it was, said
Editor Sheers, pompously. Yes, the
extract was originally written the
seven ages of man, but I had to cut it
down for the lack of space.
"Another story concerned a weather
report A reporter, discussing the
weather, wrote that winter still lie
gered in the lap of spring.
"The editor, as he read over the
article, called the reporter to his desk
and told him that he would cut out
that sentence about winter lingering
in spring's lap. He said the idea was
good enough, and all that sort of
thing, but it would not do to publish
because the high moral tone of the
paper had to be maintained in a town
full of school girls."
Training Lion for Exhibition.
It takes four years to train a lion for
exhibition work, but only one animal
in four is available for training. A
few accomplishments increases the
animal's value five fold.
Had "Coffee Nerves" from Youth.
"When very young I began using
coffee and continued up to the past
six months," writes a Texas girl.
"I had been exceedingly nervous,
thin and very, sallow. After quitting
coffee and drinking Postum Food Cof
fee about a month my nervousness
disappeared and has never returned.
This is the more remarkable as I am
a Primary teacher and have kept
right on with my work.
"My complexion now is clear and
rosy, my skin soft and smooth. As a
good complexion was something I had
greatly desired, r feel amply repaid
even tho this were the only benefit
derived from drinking Postum. '
"Before beginning its use I had
suffered greatly from indigestion and
headache; these troubles are now un
known. "Best of all, I changed from coffee
to Postum without the slightest incon
venience, did not even have a head
ache. Have known coffee drinkers
who were visiting me. to use Postum
a week without being aware that they
were not drinking coffee.
"I have known several to begin the

they did not' boil it properly. After

Advice 5bcveF" Is Latest Novelty Evolved
for the Benefit of Br!d-to-Be Ariiuse

An Advice Shower.
Quite the newest thing for the bride
elect Is the "advice" shower. Not
that the fair young creature is sup
posed to profit by it, not in the least;
for she, like the rest of us. must learn
by hard, cold experience. Such an
affair was given recently; it was a
luncheon and the young woman was
the guest of honor.
The hostess sent with the invitation
slips of gray paper of a uniform size,
with the request to write a bit of ad
vice for the benefit of Miss B .
All -the guests were married young
matrons of about a year and all sure
that they .knew just the proper way of
managing "John," "Jim." and "Sam"
in exactly the very best way.
When all were at the table, which
was done in pink chrysanthemums,
with -a great fluffy "mum" at each
place, the guests were asked to read
the quotations on their cards, which
all savored of love and good wishes
for the honored guest Then, when the
coffee was brought in, the hostess
asked the guests to read in turn the
advice which they had brought These
selections were exceedingly clever,
and kept the party in gales of laugh
ter. They were all given to the bride,
after having been slipped into a dainty
cover of tooled leather made for the
One bride of six months had writ
ten: "Never offer to mend your has-'
band's clothes orT press his' trousers:
if you do he will soon be asking you
to make over his whole dress suit"
Another one said: "Always play the
part of the clinging vine, for it makes
husband act the part of the sturdy
oak." One matron, quick with her
pen and wits', had written a set of
"The Wife's Ten Commandments."
The "shalt nots" were roundly ap
plauded. For Children on Sunday.
The following questions have been
tasked Madame Merri: What do you
think about children having guests on
Sunday, and what can you suggest to
amuse little folks In the hour before
It is not a bad Idea to let the chil
dren ask -a guest or two occasionally
to share their Sunday pleasures and
the pleasant tea afterward, but as a
rr.le it is better to keep the day sacred
to the family, for In most families it is
generally the only day parents really
have time to .devote to their children.
I heard a father say once that he did
not know how he would ever get ac
quainted with his little boy and girl if
the wise Lord had not provided Sun
day. There are many valuable books
which will greatly assist the mother
in her entertainment for the seventh
uay, and, I most firmly believe in mak
ing the day a lookod-for occasion, and
just as happy as possible. Then there
is a game composed of a hundred
cards, all the questions taken from the
Bible. It is played exactly like au
thors. Pictures to be cut out and
pasted into scrapbooks for poor sick
children is another good occupation.
Children are devoted to pastepots,
paints and scissors, and if there is a
The girl and woman who wishes the touch of individuality given by her
monogram can easily embroider both her underwear and household linen,
if at all clever; with her needle.
By selecting the initial of the first name and simply combining that .with,
the initial o'f the last it is not nearly so difficult to evolve one's. monogram as
is generally supposed and costs nothing but the time it takes. Then use
soft filling cotton to trace the letters, using a little chain stitch to give a pad
ded look, and the work with fine mercerized floss that comes for the purpose;
the result more than pays for the small amount of time, trouble and cost, the
latter only the fewnts for the working cotton.
French hand-made underclothing is always attractive and expensive as
well, because of this very fashion of fine embroidering. Any girl may have
her own quite as dainty if she will. One's name in script is sometimes used;
the writing 'should be heavier to make the embroidering natural.
the Newest Fancy
The newest fancy in collars is for
the striped turnover, the stripes being
of medium widths and running up
and down. These collars are in green
and white, blue and white, pink and
white, etc They are the rather high
turnover chokers which have become
popular in the" last year. Some of
these collars have no trimming, while
many have round or square pieces
of lace set in at intervals, the material
being cut away underneath. Thesff
collars are to be worn with plain
shirtwaists in white or tan linen or
flannel or with waists of plain materi
al in the color of the stripe.
For quite young girls small sailor
collars are also made in this striped
linen. Some of these collars are the
square sailors and others are flat turn
overs without any standing band. The
mailer the girl the wider the collar,
but saost of them arex quite small for
sailor' collars. Many girls wear these
perfectly flat collars without standing
oaads through all their school days,
oecause it is thought to keep their
hand to guide, and a dear mother to
give directions, this amusement will:
fill a good share of the before-sapper
Little children always love Bible
stories, with highly colored pictures,
but a mother should exercise, much
are In the reading matter, for impres
sions made now will last forever. In
fact, if the stories are told, not read,
it is very much better. The inflexion
of the voice and the personal interpre
tation is. the most lasting in its im
pression on. the eager little listeners.
The China Wedding.
After 20- years of married life the
china wedding may be celebrated.
About this time the average house
wife welcomes any addition to her
china closet so there is no question
about appropriate gifts for the oc
casion. There Is really not much decoration
to be done except to eschew cut glass
and silver as much as possible, using
china in. its place.
Doll cups or plates may be nsed for
almond and bon-bon holders and, if
the purse permits, ft small cup and
saucer or china spoon, such as may be
found at the Japanese stores, may be
given as souvenirs. The names of the
guests can he written on little china
plates to use as place cards if the af
fair is a dinner or a Inhcheon.1 . :
I heard of one couple who celebrat
ed this anniversary by giving a. Chi
nese party. The house was decorated
with lanterns, they wore costumes
made from gay Chinese cotton crepe,
and rice was served with .chop sticks.
A regular Chinese supper was served,
the viands having been purchased
1 from a reliable chop suey place. This
was a jolly, informal affair, hugely
enjoyed by all fortunate enough to be
present Red and yellow, the favorite
colors of the Chinese! were nsed in
the decorations, and "joss" sticks were
burned. These so-called joss sticks
were only the long incense sticks with
which we are wont to fight mosquitoes
in the summer time.

Attractiens in Collars.
Dainty turnover collars were never
more popular.. Although they are
seen in all varieties, perhaps the most
attractive are the hand made. The
person who is handy with the needle
may well exhibit her skill, for all
sorts of designs, in needlework are. em
ployed on these turnovers. Walla
chian is still popular as is also the
English eyelet Either alone or in
combination with the solid embroidery
furnishes a multitude of designs. Col
lars designed in sage green, dull blue or
golden brown cotton are worn with a
tie corresponding in color. Many very
elaborate collars can be made for the
small sum -of -35 'cents, and often much'
less, and very becoming and attrac
tive. , . ,
There is a decided novelty in belts
known as a shaped linen belt. They
are made is linen and silk, and come
in many oriental colors and shapes
so as to fit the waist closely, . .
necks whiter and smoother. The big
collars are declared by many to be
ruinous to a pretty neck.
Quite large bows of soft satin are
now shown for wear with turnover'
chokers or with sailor collars. They
have severe loops at each end,' the
loops all being finished in points.
There are also. Windsorites of fine
linen, with lace and embroidery dec
orating the ends.
For the severe tailor-made suits the
style for this fall which will be most
frequently seen is a half-length coat,
cut away sharply in front, and some
times edged, with' a wide silk or mo
hair braid to match the cloth. The
sleeves are full length, and a smart
touch of color "is seen at the collar,
cuffs and buttons; The skirt will be
short length and plaited, thc-agh the
plain circular model also promises to
be in vogue.
Long mannish looking stocks of
white linen, pique or- duck are ex-'
tremely. popular and smart for wear
with the tailored shirt.
