N. B.-lt has also an extremely good
effect upon the potatoes.
A flatlron makes a perfect dumbbell.
Take a firm hold of the handle of the
Iron and thrust th arm forward with
a lunging movement, keeping the
body meanwhile erect There are three
result to be obtained from thia ex
orcise. It is splendid for strengthen
ing th back, as th weight at the bot
tom of the arm requires foroe to keep
It moving. It also reduces flesh about
the hips and adds to one'a grace of
movement
N. B. The flatlron exercise I partic
ularly effective when performed upon
tha family wash.
For the cultivation of grace and little
ness of movement the best known
medium Is the broom exercise.
To d this get a good, solid grip on
a broom handl every morning. Imme
diately after breakfast, and after throw-
lag up the windows so as to let In plenty
of fresh air sweep th house rapidly and
thoroughly.
Th continual bending backward and
forward of the body at each stroke of
the broom renders th muscles of the
back and cheat firm and smooth. It
also developa th arm and the stooping
down to sweep under the beds and dress

great elasticity to the entire figure.

Take ordinary wash tub and board. Fill
th tub three-fourths full of hot water,
then Immerse a piece of cloth In the

effectually remove the fatty deposit on

promote grac and symmetry. It la par

To soften the hands and keep them

Remove th china from th table 1m
mediately after each meal and submerge
it In hot water. Th gresa from th
soiled plates will be found an excellent
emollient. Repeat thia process three
times a day. Immediately after eating.
K. B.-Thla exercise, If kept up regu
larly, will prolong mother's life, and
prevent her hands from getting corns on
them from overwork.
These are only a few of the many ad

who will try them. These exercises bring
every muscle Into play, snd observation
will show thst sny woman who
habitually takea them has no need to go
to high priced cures for robustness, or
study Delsarte theories for grace.
The finest figure in the world are pos
sessed by housemaids, and many a sen-

I doant agree with you, sed Ma, I

I dreemed that I bad rot a song. It
went ilk this: :
A fair yung wife was standing on New
York's gratest street.
Her husband waa a brllyust man, but
seldom he did eat. ' '
Ula fair yung wife did face him at the
close of that asd day, ,
She looked upon him thoughtfully, I A
these words she d.d say;.
CHORUS.
A liver can't five long on Broadway
It hasn't got no chance st all;
Tour liver is your paid, but in time It
will get hard.
And 'twill croak yen In th springtime
or the fall.
Stomacha and livers have a lot of patience
They're always loyal and they're always
true.
But a liver can't live long on Broadway
And that the surest thing you over
knew.
I happen to have rota that song my-
self, sed Via. bow do you like It?

A FLIRT FOR A WIFK BT vVINI
FRED BLACK
The bunny hug Is another of thos
dances which has created sn uproar for
no apparent reason except thst certain
people who don't know now to dance,
anyhow, bavs danced It neither wisely
aor welL
Of course, oa th stsga It's another
story. Many pcopl go to th theater
with th Mea that they are going to be
nocked. If tbey aren't a tart ted they
aren't pleased and don't think tbey have
gotten their money's worth.
For the people, and there are thou
sands more than you think, on accen
tuates the dances, makes them broader
snd suggestive But even oa th stag
th dancers must be both graceful and
elegant In then- motions. Otherwise ths
bunny hug. the turkey trot aad all th
ether modern dances are agly and vol
gar, to say the least
Americans are tha best dsnoers In th
world. They dance with more grac and
abandon than th Spanish people, even,
but sometimes they are Inclined to be
careless la the wsy they bold themselves.
Hold yourself perfectly straight; don't
be stiff, however. And now for th bunny
bug.
Some on said this dance was espe
cially adapted ta engaged couples. I
think It ta, too.
It osj-ufnly Is not a wild or hilarious
dance. It Is a sort of "snuggly" dance
where th girt puts bar hand an ber part
ner's shoulder and ths two. In close em
brace, do a very slow two-step describ
ing a circle about ths center of the stsge
or floor. -
On the stage the dance has not found
favor except when mar acrobatic step
are Joined to the "hug." It la too muck
like the lovers In the park on summer
evenings, so to make the danc more
successful and give It variety all kinds
of different postures snd poses are added.
The original step la the "hug" as de
scribed. This should go with the siow pert of
the music In two-step kind. If a livelier
tempo Is struck th two danc a turkey
trot "rock." asauming the regular dance
position, but with hands on each other'a
shoulders.
At the end of earn musical phrase,
when the natural pause comes In th
music, th dancers assume a pose
which is held until the music starts again.
One good pose la illustrated here, but
it may be too acrobatic for many people,
in such ca-es the lady need not bead
backward.

The history ot mankind Is the record of usl Insight that we s
hug experiment In getting together.
Without organisation we get non ot the
finer element of life, such a orchestra
and steam heat cities, street cars, dic
tionaries snd police.
Furs Individualism means barbarism.
Each man dwells In hla own cars with
the woman he has taken.
. he struggle upward on th part of th
race la merely a struggl t crush out
thos element that prevent co-operation.
Price, lust, money-love, power-love and
all forms of primal egoism disintegrate
society, prevent unity, spilt ail pacts of
mutual help snd are thus sgent sot
savagery.
They minister lo primitive egoism, but,
they destroy th higher, finer and mar
permanent egoism: that Is to say whll
they seem to Increase a man, yet la
reality they eat him up. They mak him
small, they narrow his nature, provin
cialise his Ideas snd push him back to
ward the brute. They ar not forces ot
evolution, but of dissolution.
Now, therefore, almost all attempts at
getting together, all efforts at organizing
Into atates, churches, armies, cults, unions
snd the like, have sppesled to thasa
primeval passions, which In their nature
can never glv eolldity to bodies ot men.
Ths cementing passions are curious. For
thsy seem st first glance to bo antl
Indlvlduallstlc: to make for loe to m
and gain to others. Really, when he corns
to try them out they Increase and
strengthen me. They ar. as a matter ot
fact powerfully egoistic, only that quality
is concealed In them; It takes time, faith,
vision snd spiritual regeneration to see
u.
For Instance, tak love-of-man, of men
souls themselves; Instead of the love of
power over them. That seems to mean for
me to annihilate self for others. Also take
Joy-ln-work. and devotlon-to-Ideal, and
dellght-in-service. All of these seem to
strike st self.
We rebel against them with the Instinct
of self-defense.
It Is only when we reach a certain
point of rlpenera In experience, of ma
turity In witdom and of power la splrtt-
through tha
shall to tha kernel.
It Is then ws perceive tha actual truth
of Ih saying that "h that Bareth hla
lift shall loss it and ha that loaelh hit
nfs hall find It"
For we learn by and by that only as
we put away th cruder exolsma of lust,
money-love, pride, th desire to b mas
ter, th bate of service and so an, do we
come to a sweeter, wkler, nobler egoism;
