I KEEP BABY'S SKIN CLEAR
Few parents realize how many es
timable lives have been embittered
and social and business success pre
vented by serious skin affections
which so often result from the neglect
of minor eruptions in infancy and
childhood. With but a little care and
the use of the proper emollients, baby's
skin and hair may be preserved, purl

prevented from becoming chronic and
torturing, disfigurim: rashes, itchings,
irritations and dialings dispelled.

This is made of corded silk of a deep
cream, embroidered slightly with rib

bristle side, and when the paste is ap

that it docs not touch that part be

Fringe on Frocks.
Tijy cotton fringes in cream or
whitu are to be used upon some of
the novelty cottons and linens for
sumiLer frocks. They are those iden
tical ones that come for bedroom up
holstcy. The finest qualities among them are
quite oelicate enough o use on linen
scrims and hopsackingj.
Some of the fringe- measuring but a
scant inch in depth is woven of white
and bhif cotton in a pattern which
runs alo.ig the gimo which holds It
in place. In others, the fringe re
mains uncut, each thread being a loop.
The French have u&ed tlitfse fringes
for several seasons; just as they have
used the tsny silk quality on chiffon
and white radium silk.

Fur Hatpins Now.
It seemed that French ingenuity had
devised every sort of hatpin that
could possibly be thought of; but now
a new kind makes its appearance. This
is the hatpin tipped with a pert little
animal head of fur.. Tiny fox faces
make these hatpins very attractive
and they are used not only on the fur
turbans, but on all hats trimmed with
fur. Now also are monogram hatpins
carved from wood and highly var
nished and polished, when the carving
has been completed.

It is not correct to say that "ceme

The word is from the Greek "Koime

the place of the dead. There is nothing

intended to convey the idea that the
departed were really dead any more
than there Is in tbe old Hebrew term
