notes. "I've been down at the -store,"

your booth?" "Oh, I've been at ,"
the other would reply and then they'd
hive a point of contact Such a thor
ough discussion of this national work
as ensued it would be hard to dupli
cate. "How many members did you get
today," is a favorite question. Bail'
dace rolline and the making of sur
gical dressing have lost some of their
interest in tne new iiooq or neu

that is taught in first aid classes fur

Take the advertising game. Even
the men folk enter with zest into a
game so alive and up-to-date. Cut
from an old magzine various well
known pictorial advertisements that
bear no tell-tale names directly upon
the pictures. Mount these cut-outs
upon stiff paper or card. Upon the
back of each mark the name of the
firm by which it is issued or the
product which it boosts. The object
then is to see who can guess the
firms and products for which the ad
vertisements stand. If the game is
played at a party give a prize to the
person naming the greatest number
As manv advertisements as you wish
to use are permitted in the game, but
to keep it always interesting and
timely add the newest as they come
out and eliminate the back numbers
from the collection.
"Jig-saw" puzzles (those in which
irregular pieces arc fitted together to
form a complete picture) made from
cut-up magazine covers are amusing
to young and old, especially to con
valescents who need unexciting occu
pation during long idle hours. To
make the puzzle sufficiently interest
ing to adults clip the picture intb
smaller pieces to make the fitting to
gether more difficult. The smaller
lhe child, however, the larger the
puzzle pieces should be.
Bead stringing has for generations
been a favorite pastime for children.
Add to it the art of bead-making and
the play becomes doubly fascinating.
Pretty, colorful beads can be made
by cutting brightly colored magazine
covers or illustrations into strips
about five inches long and as wide as
the length that, the maker wishes the
beads to be when finished. The bead
is made by rolling the strip very
tightly about a hatpin, beginning at
one end. Fasten the final end with a
bit of paste to keep the little cylin
der from unwinding. When the hat
pin is withdrawn there will remain
the "threading hole" and the bead is
complete. Slightly point the paper
so that no uneven edges will extend
beyond the ends of the beads.
Any wide-awake little girl can 'find
between the covers of the average,
magazine for women entire furnish
ings for a doll's house. Moreover, if
she be not sufficiently fortunate as to
have a doll's house, the pages of tire
magazine torn out and pinned to
gether will form at least the four
walls and roof; and if the child be in
ventive, the paper-walled house can
even be divided into room and floors
by means of paper partitions.
The floors can be rugged with the
costliest of Orientals, clipped from
nig ads, and the walls adorned with
pictures that have been clipped framed
and ready for hanging from art-shoo
ads. Even the doll-house kitchen and
bathroom need suffer no dearth of
the very latest equipment and im
provements, for there arc many ads'
snowing kitchen cabinets, tireless
cookers, patent dislwashcrs, plumb
ers' supplies, etc.
Similarly, paper furniture from the
most exclusive stores and of the most
exquisite design, pictured in. the shops'
own ans, can lie clipped and will help
to make the little paper rooms real
works of art, which besides delight
ing the child will teach her the first
principles of good taste and inter
ior decorating and the distinguishing
characteristics of period furniture.
From the macazines of outdoor life
hoys can clip paper farms. One bright
lad interested in pedigreed stock and
having the clipping habit has made a
stock farm of thoroughbied cattle all
trom magazine cut-outs. His brother
is interested in thoroughbred dogs,
and he, in his turn, clins everv con
ceivable variety from the kennel ads
and magazine articles pertaining to
canines. Every once in a while he
holds a paper dog show for lhe chil
dren of the neighborhood. His show
has given himself and his friends an
excellent idea of breeds in general,
information about his and their own
dogs in particular and how to care
for them properly on all of which
the young showman h well informed.
While the price of admission to one
of 4iis shows is usually fifteen pins,
the admission has been known to soar
to a penny when the manager's own
flesh and blood canine needed a new
collar, a tonic or some other expen
sive necessity. Philadelphia Ledger.
