1 Woman's World 1 HOMELY COUNSEL. It isn't worth while to fret, dear. To walk as behind a hearse, No matter how vexing things Inay be, They easily might be worse. And the time you spend 'complaining .And groaning ,-ibout the load "Would better be given to going on, And pressing along the 'road. I've trodden the hill myself, dear 'Tis the tripping tongue can preach, I But though silence is sometimes gol- ' den, child. As oft there is grace in speech And I see from my higher level, Tis less the path than the pace That wearies the back and dims the eye And writes the lines on the face. 1hn-o are vexing cares enough, dear, And to spare, when all is told. Ami love must mourn its losses, And the cheek's soft bloom grow old; V.'.u. thr- jipHI of the craven spirit Turns blessing into curse, "While the bold heart meets the trouble That easily mignt be worse. ;-'o smile ?. each disaster That will presently pass away, And believe a bright tomorrow "Will follow th? "dark today. Th- re's nothing trained by fretting, Gather your strength anew, Aii l step by step go onward, dear, I.-t the skies be gray or blue. Mirgaret K. Sangster. EASTER IN 1905. From the London Nature.) The coming year is one in which un- -rtaiiity might arise as to the date of Krister, if the Prayer book rule were stvii-tly followed. Dr. Downing, F. It. S.. of the Nautical Almanac office, stHtes that inquiries have been addressed ad-dressed to him on the subject. According Ac-cording to the prayer book, Easter day on which all other movable feasts rind holy days depend) "is always the first Sunday after the fujl moon, which happens upon or next after the 21st day of March." In 1905 the moon is full on the morning of Tuesday, March 21. at -ill. r.fimin. Greenwich time, and therefore Easter day would seem to be 'th-r Sunday following, Marcn 26. Put. explains Dr. Downing, "the moon referred to in the ecclesiastical calendar is not the actual moon in the sky. which is full at a definite instant of time; but a fictitious moon, the times f thp phases of which are so arranged as not to differ much from those of the actual moon. These phass are held to occur vaguely on certain days and hold good for all longitudes. In the instance before us the actual moon is full at 4h. Otimin. a. m. Greenwich mean time, while the same moon 3s full at llh. 4Smin. p. in. (on the preceding day) "Washington mean time. Thus people adopting Greenwich time I would keep Easter on March 26, while those adopting 'Washington time would keep it on April 23. the next full moon." f Dr. Downing gives as the simplest ex- I ' pression for the date of the Paschal full moon March (44 epact). When the ejiact is equal to or greater than 24 this expression gives the date of the precrding full moon, and the Paschal full moon is found by adding 29 to this dnt In 1505 the epact is 24. and the i al' ndar moon is full on March 20 and April 18. The latter is therefore the Paschal full moon, and Easter day is the Sunday following, April 23 as stat-ei stat-ei in the almanacs. THE QUALITY OF MOORE'S CATHOLICITY. CATH-OLICITY. (Hy Rev. Hugh F. Blunt, in Donahoe's for March.) ... Irony: Well might he be suspected f irony even when defending I ho faith. He professed his faith in the hurch. he said he believed it was the true church, he had said to one who had tried to make a Protestant of hir.i.

Straw matting should be cleaned by dipping a large, coarse cloth in salty water, wiping thoroughly and drying, j Beat a carpet on the wrong side first, then on the right sid-?. A bumdle of tough switches is an excellent carpet beater. If a carpet begins to show signs of wear, rip the lengths apart and transpose, trans-pose, putting the worn widths on the fides. In nailing down a carpet be-sure that the floor is perfectly dryfi else the tacks may rust and ir.jure the carpet. Tinned Tin-ned tacks are best to use. To remove lly-specks from gilt frames wash very gently with warm alcohol (heated by setting in a pan of hot water), letting it dry on. Coal oil will clean smoked copper, nickel, tin or agate ware, which should afterward be polished with old paper. To clean the was.h pan nothing is better bet-ter than a few drops of coal oil. For brightening grates, fronts, fenders fen-ders and similar iron substances, mix well one pint of asphaitum with a gill of turpentine, and apply evenly with a I-aint brush. The quantity is enough for five grates. To brighten carpets after beating, wipe all over with a soft cloth dipped in ammonia water one gill of household house-hold ammonia to one gallon of water. Remove spts with x-gall and water-one water-one pint of ox-gall to three gallons of water. Tar or wax may be removed by rubbing with turpentine. To clean a soiled carpet, make a suds cream-like in coi bistency. of good soap and soft water, and apply with a small scrubbing brush, cleaning only a small space at a time, sponging it off at once with clean cold ivater and rubbing dry with soft clean cloths. A weak solution of alum or soda is used to revive colors. A pale pink coloring for walls can be made by dissolving, whiting or lime in cold water and adding enough permanganate perman-ganate of potash to give it the desired color. Add a little liquid glue and apply ap-ply as you would whitewash. A pale ellow can he made with a little yellow ochre, and the Iuandry blueing bag will give a tint of blue. CARE OF THE HAIR. (Professor A. P. Knight in the Queen's Monthly.) Hair generally begins to turn gray first upon the temples. In most people gray hairs show themselves at about 40 years of age. But there are wide variations in time. The immediate cause of gray bans is in the failure of the cells at the growing point to manufacture man-ufacture the pigment necessary to give the color to the hair. "When this change takes jilace at mid-life it marks a gradual lowering of the vitality of the , skin, and, to some extent, of course, a I decadence of general vitality. In esti- J mating, however, the immediate cause of baldness and of gray hair, a very' important factor must always be taken into account, namely, hereditary. The first rule f;;r the care of the hair is to wash it. This should be done about once a week with lukewarm water and castile soap. Another important rule is to comb and crush the hair three or four times a day, thus bringing more blood to the loots of the hair, more nutritive mate-nal, mate-nal, and carrying away the dead waste Brushing. brings more blood to the scalp and to this extent tends to promote pro-mote the growth and vigor of the haid. Massage of the scalp has the same ef-fgeet. ef-fgeet. and this must be practiced also ifw would areproperly foi? the hair. Curling of hair is exceedingly doubtful. doubt-ful. The heat kills the hair, and dead hair tends to fall out. If you must curl the hair use soft silk rags with which to do it. Sheet lead and hard paper are almost as bad as the curling tongs. A word of advice to men. Don't wear tight fitting, heavy hats of caps. These impede the free circulation of blood to the scalp, and as a result the hair is not properly nourished, nor is the dead waste carried away. The growing root is suffocated through lack of oxygen, and in the end the hair dies and falls out. TAKE HEART. Though fearful storms have swept in wra th About thy toilsome, rugged path. Arid thou hast ofttimes been cast down And sore dismayed by fortune's frown, j Faint not, but bravely bear thy part, O fellow man; once more take heart. The storm is followed then by calm And winter gales by airs and balm; Dark night gives place to sun-bright day; Let Hope still cheer thee on thy way. Beyond the cloud still shines the sun; Press on until thy work is done. Perchance thus many times hast failed, Some weakness over thee prevailed. And thus hast faltered in the strife And sadly rued thy blighted life; Though great thy grief and keen thy pain, O weary heart, take heart again. Dwell not upon thy mournful past; Arise, and for the right stand fast. Be strong and brave, fold not thy hands. For three still flow life's golden sands, To better things sweet voices call, And God in love rules over all. John Allen Guilford.- Banana Diet For Dyspepsia. An exchange tells of . the . success of a banana diet in a case of nervous dyspepsia, dys-pepsia, where the patient, a woman, grew so thin as to be periliously near the danger line in weight. The diet was varied within the limit of bananas as a base. The fruit was baked and served hot or prepared as a cold jelly, was served in fritters, and biscuits made of banana flour were eaten. It was found the delicately cooked banana ba-nana was at first the more acceptable; but, as the woman thrived under the treatment, perfectly ripe bananas were freely eaten raw. Many. f6od speciaN ists consider that this fruit contains valuable nutritive elements in an easily eas-ily assim'lated form. If eaten raw, to be digestible it must be used when thoroughly ripe, but not In the least over rtoe. HEALTH AND BEAUTY H I NT..- If there are brown spots on the hands make a naste of lemon juice and powdered pow-dered sulphur and apply it whenever possible, allowing it to dry in the sun. Tt it remain on as long as you can after each application. This paste will take effect more readily if the hands are soaked in warm water some time before it is applied. Girls should heed the repeated warnings of physicians physi-cians against the present fashion of wearing low shoes in winter. Medical men trace far' more subtle'diseases than mere colds and bronchitis directly to the chilling of the extremities. If low hoes are preferred as more comfortable comforta-ble and lighter, by all means protect the ankles with cloth gaiters. An excellent tooth powder that is in expensive, pure and efficient may be easily made by any one. "Mix two ounces of pulverized borax with four ounces of precipitated chalk- add one ounce each of powdered myrrh and pulverized orris.

To be suddenly awakened from sound sleep sends a great rush of blood to the heart, thus overtaxing and straining it. People -whofe -business necessitates their being awakened early have long suspected the practice of being an evil one, and have tried to rid themselves of it. But heretofore they have had no better reason for wishing to continue to lie in bed than that they found it inconvenient omnpleasant to rise early. ear-ly. Evidently they have right on their side. It is an unhygienic practice, this being waked up at unearthly hours in the dusk of the early morning. It is bad for the heart. An inexpensive and useful accessory to the daily bath may be made by placing plac-ing a cupful of odd bits of good soap in a large knitted or cheesecloth bag, with a quart of bran, an ounce of powdered pow-dered orris root and half an ounce of almond meal. This makes the best skin beautifier ever invented, and after using it freely in the bath perceptible improvement in the complexion will be noticed at once. Constant use will make the improvement permanent, and there will be also a luxurious feeling of perfect cleanliness as well as a flowerlike flower-like odor about the person, the effect of the orris root. Always rinse your hands in cold water wa-ter after having had them in water which is more than blood warm. During Dur-ing cold or windy weather it is best always to have some preparation handy, that it may be applied whenever when-ever the hands have been wet. Pow- dered starch is very healing to most fkins; it is easily applied, not at all expensive, ex-pensive, and does not prevent one from ABOUT WRITING LETTERS. A woman should keep 'in mind the following rules: Business letters must be concise and el tar, because business people ait; sup- I posed to be busy. No letter is complete without the. date. In writing to solicit employment of any kind, on no account should personal per-sonal perplexities o;; needs be mentioned. men-tioned. The world 1s-full of unfortunate unfor-tunate persons, and to a stranger the troubles of one are no more than those of a host of others. Letters of introduction are left open when written. Elaborately ornamented note paper and highly perfumed notes arc vulgar. When answering letters, remember: remem-ber: That written words stand ae everlasting ever-lasting witnesses. That an ambiguous sentehce is likely like-ly to be misinterpreted. That friendly words never harm. That a written word of sympathy can sometimes do much good. That a letter written in a kindly spirits should b-s answered in the same way. even though the message is dis-liket!. dis-liket!. That business letters and invitations must be answered at once. That one should acknowledge any friendly offer of hospitality. WINTER SALADS. Cabbage Salad.

Freeman's Jouprnal. Fear not my soul, you are on the I way to that sun-bright clime where the flowers never fade and death never comes. To that summerland where the precious things of our love that faded and fled here shall be restored in all their freshness and fairness, and the human flowers that withered along our path sholl bloom anew on the calm, pure heights of our heavenly land, and we shall see them again and "our hearts shall rejoice and our joy-no. joy-no. man taketh from us."
