- v Woman's World j FOR LOVE'S SAKE. I tmetim" I am tempted tu murmur ' That life is flitting away. Yith only a. round of trifles Filling each busy day, Dusting nooks and corners, Making the house look fair. And patiently taking on me The burden of woman's care. Comforting childish sorrows And charming the childish he net yi!h the simple song and story Told -with a mother's art; getting the deal" home table And clearing the meal away. And fcoing on little errands In the twilight of the day. One days is just like another Sewing and piecing well Little jackets and trousers 0 r.eatly that none can tell Where are the seams and Joinings Ah! the seamy side of life Is kept out of sight by the magic Of majiy a, mother and wife! 'And oft when I'm ready to murmur That time is flitting away "Tvith the feelf-came round of duties Filling each bury day. It comes to my spirit sweetly. With th grace of a thought divine: "lour are living, toiling for loves sake, And the loving should never repine. f A "Tu are guiding the little footsteps In the way they ought to walk, v 3u are dropping a word for Mxv.s In the midst of your hous.i.iold talk; Living your life for love's sake, Till the homely cares grow sweet. And tax-red the pclf-denial That is laid at the Master's fx-et." (Marion Martinea.u in Chicago GOOD ADVICE FOR, THE SUMMER GIRL Tribune.) Ti'liat a pity they can't make a summer without sunburn," paid the dimmer girl, illogically.

Many people will remember the d-ays hen a belle did go in the house and nay in the houee .until fall literally. It was not so long ago, either. Hut It was before the days of skin lotions, fend before th days of cheap cold creams, and before facial massage was known. The belle of today is not allowed to sacrifice herself thus. She Ws compelled to come out into the world and asso-c:ate asso-c:ate with her fellow creatures. i?he must golf and tennis, yi.e must boat arA limh Khf must run and inmii f he must take part in the tournament, end, when not doing any or all of these things she must teke exercise. Her out of door constitutional io necessary neces-sary to her health and beauty. The belle of today has her good times, but she pays for them. She plays in the sun and she exposes her-' her-' hkln to the breezes. But when phe comes indoors she goes through a course of treatment which repairs the Tavags of the last few hours. i.'r-on her dressing table there is a f formidable row of bottles. And rat-ted along a shelf where they will b handy for use are pastes and salves, rodders and creams, and all sortV of implications for the skin and the hair. ! The girl who golfs has her own pe culiar applications. They are, like her sport, strenuous, but she needr; some-thin? some-thin? to take hold of her skin. She carries with her a wide-mouthed bot-t! bot-t! which is labeled "golf fkin lotion." Airi when she has come in from the plf field she applies thjs to her oom-rxiin. oom-rxiin. not forgetting her hands as 'ell as her face. She daubs it on, and if f lie can spare the time she leaves it en for half an hour, j The golf skin lotion is made by mix ing an ounce of olive oil w ith, an ounx-e. ) "f glycerine. To this if added half a teaspoon of boracic acid. The- whole j is s-liaken together and is applied freely ; to skin, it is good for burns and an he ufed as a. wash' for the hands whn they have been scorched by the pun.

Thfa is liked by those i 1( h' do not want to spend a great deal ; upon a glove paste. And there is a paste made by ttir-ring ttir-ring honey thick with bran. This is a r-'at bleacher for the skin, and. V 4 '!"i;gh disagreeable to handle, it well 4 -f "Mays one for the trouble. Do not ia); too much of the peste. and do i "t pt it too moist.

Those who have been coaching or automobiling can wash the face with Jtot water and a little good soap. Shaving Shav-ing soap i? sure to be pure. The face should be dried carefully so as not to injure the skin which may be burned. And then there should be applied the automobile cream. Fut it on thick and let it stay on. It will do no harm at all but a great deal of good. In an hour or so wipe orf and apply a little powder. The face is now ready for evening. Then there is the woman whose skin is rough and who cannot use powder j on her face and who is too busy to take much maeeage and who does not feel s though she could afford expensive lotions. For the woman who wants & cheap lotion there is a special specific. She can take a cucumber and cut it up and pour over it a cup of water, Sne can Jet thi3 simmer for fifteen minutes and can then strain it. She must be rfure that she gets the whole juice of the cucumber. - Now, to this, she chu add five drops of tincture of besion and a tablespoonful of boracic acid, and she will have a nice cucumber lo- i tion for the skin. ( i The woman with little time to spend ! upon her complexion can work wonders with it just the same if she is willing to take five minutes or so once or twice a day. Good, intelligent cure takes no longer than poor care, and j the results are a thousand times bet-ter. bet-ter. j For the woman who is w illing to j massage and who has the time for it there are glorious results to be obtained ob-tained from the lotions of summer. If she will massage strawberry cream , into her face: if she will treat her skin j with cucumber lotions, if she will dis- j till the roses and make a rose vinegar, if she will treat her skin as it should j be treated, and will take advantage of j the offerings of Mother Nature, she will have a. complexion that is too lovely for description. The art of massaging a little good skin food into the cheeks every night is nearly an exclusive one. It is known to the French and to a few skillful facial manipulators, but the woman at home seldom or never practices it. The face must be washed in hot water to open the pore?. Then, while it is in ' this condition, the cold cream is massaged mas-saged into it. The result will begin to e apparent in a short time. The girl w ho has walked and played iu the sun until her neck is all colors must treat the skin to restore it. This requires not only massage, but an application ap-plication with a bleaching substance iu.it. The safest bleaches in the long run are the vegetable bleaches. And one of the best of these is the cucumber bleach, made by extracting the clear, pure juice from two ripe cucumbers. To this add a teaspoonful of borax. Apply Ap-ply to the skin clear, as a lotion, and let it remain on. Wash off with soap and water. Be sure to rinse off all the soap. And do not go out for at least an hour after using. This is extremely nice for any skin that is freckled, or yellow, or discolored,- blotched, or pimpled, or rough. Letters and Answers by Marian Mar-tineau. Mar-tineau. Miss T.: I have frequently heard carbolic recommended as a face "wash or bleach. Do you think it is a good thing? Certainly not in its full strength. Ic would hepelersly disfigure you for life The way to use carbolic is to drop a few drops An big. basin of warm vater. The druggist will-tell you just how mqch. The amount varies a lit-, j tie. according to the skin. Georgiana:: Can you tell me h?vto make milk of cucumbers? 1 want to use it an a regular face wash. Take ihe cucumbers and cut them j up tine and cover with water, a cup to each cucumber. Lt simmer half an hour. Strain. Add ten drops of ben-zion ben-zion to a pint of the fluid. hake well and use as a face wash. This is good to apply to the face after it has been steamed and the pores cleansed.' (j. it. D-; What would you recommend recom-mend for tired feet? I am trying to reduce, but it is not much good since mv feet hurt me so 1 cannot walk. I would recommend soaking the feet Pve minutes at night in hot soft water. Take out, dry quickly, and rub with red vaseline. Use little, just enough to restore the natural moisture to the feet. Miro Y.: I am not healthy, and am recommended to go barefoot part of the day. This is inconvenient, so what can I do Jn place of it? You are right. It is inconvenient to go barefoot. Why do you not try the experiment of putting on a clean pair of stockings every day and alternating your shoes? Have them large and comfortable, and do not wear one pair two days in succession. This will make them feel easier.' O. 11.: I have big wrinkles around my mouth. Is there such a thing as a. special wrinkle preparation for them? Yes, indeed. Take equal parts of melted white vaseline, mutton tallow, and olive ell. Heat all together. Take off and beat with an egg beater as the mixture cools. Scent with any nice oil of perfume. The cream should be about the consistency of thick cream of milk, no thicker. To Ellen: Your letter is most gratifying. grati-fying. I had tio idea such deep wrinkles as yours could be removed. It is. Indeed, plea"1 t( know that the beauty' lectures are bearing fruit. Reader: Your hair is .a. curious I shade of brown. It might be called a soft mole color. ItVould be pretty if you would tan it a little. Tanned hair, as well as tanned skin, is in style. Heavyweight: You recognize your self, do you not? You can reduce by the exercises, but 1 would not advise vou to diet much. Dieting is hard w-crk and is apt to be dangerous unless un-less done according to he physician's orders. Try the exercises and breathe plenty of. outdoor air. Georgianan B. H.:. Where tan I got my hair dyed? I would like to restore it to its natural color. Can I do It by natural methods? It is a difficult thing to restore hair if it has once turned perfectly white. No doubt there are many good dyeing establishments in 1 won where hair can be dyed. If only partly gray you can restore it by rubbing the roots with oil. Castor oil is best if not too offensive offen-sive to smell. Take half a thimbleful of the oil and dip one finger in it. Tart the hair and touch the s-.alp with the finger tips so as not to oil the hair. D. Ul.: Wculd you advise me to live entirely on fruit? I am informed that this is quickest and test way to get thin. Living on fruit might not agree with vou. It might upset your stomach. Better Bet-ter get thin slowly. E3t plenty of cooked fruit with your meals, but do not make so radical a change in your diet,... - - H. G.: What is good for forehead wrinkles? I want something that will keep them from coming back. There is 'no such thing. You can massage them with my wrinkle cream, which has benefited thousands, but you will have to keep on doing it once or tw jee a week. j BEST WAY TO RAISE CHIEDREH". (By Home Vocton in California Ladies Magazine.) - ' : The mother in dressing her little enep frhould always combine comfort . with the thought of prettiness. j To relieve eaivache -in 'Children bind j on a small bag of hope moistened with boiling water and keep it warm. Let the children be able to run about, romp and play outdoors in cold weather, weath-er, but do not take them for long, plow-walks. plow-walks. ResPect the little secrets of children. If they have concealment, worrying them will never make them tell, and patience will probably do itd work. A small bunch of absorbent eotten makes a splendid powder puff for a baby's morning bath, and is desirable, as it will be discarded for a fresh one oftener than a regular puff would be. Bathe the children in the forenoon, if possible; if not, an -hour before the evening meal. Never give a child a bath for at lea?t an hour after eating and never take a child outdoors immediately imme-diately after its bath. Mothers should learn how much sympathy means to the child. Children-s troubles may seem very trivial to us. but they are very real to them. The feeling that "mother will under- stand" ic a comforting belief to many grown up children. j Lighting a Child's Room. Tho lighting of a child's room is a very important matter from a sanitary standpoint and alvo from one of con-enience. con-enience. If gas is the illuminant ;t i should never be left lighted longer than is absolutely necessary. If anight ! light is required, then a little tught lamp should be procured, but even j then it is pity that more- mothers do not train their childien to be accus- I tomod to sleeping in a room without a j light. It is so much more healthful, j Where lamps are in use we far too I ofttri see children squinting because because the strong lamplight is directly direct-ly in their facts. Their elders seldom stop lo think of this from their su-. perior height. A light should never be placed so that its rays flare into a chi!d't eyes. One of the most prevalent prev-alent causes for poor eyesight in young children is this very negl'gencc on the part of their elders to provide shaded lights in rooms where children are sitting sit-ting or playing. Baby's Hair. Every mother likes fo see her baby with curly hair, and if it is not naturally natur-ally so it can be made to grow so with very little care. The baby's hair phould of course be washed and brushed every morning, but when the brushing is done, do not leave the hair smooth, but with the tips of the lingers rub the hair, in the little circles from right to left all over the scalp. This twists the hair at the roots and produces the rnuch-desired rnuch-desired curls. The Ailments of Children.. That children should be afflicted with headache is unnatural, and the cause should be investigated and the remedy applied at once, if parents would preserve pre-serve the health and lives of their chilr dren. .jne of the first causes of headache ii too rapid growth. As a remedy keep the children from overwork and feed them with rapid cooling foods anu little lit-tle meat. Plenty of fresh air and outdoor life will neutralize any ill effects- ariping from too much intellectual activity. Indigestion is a fruitful cause of headache apd is most frequently the result of improper food or over eating. Regular hours and suitable diet is the only remedy. headaches frequently have a nervous nerv-ous origin, in which case the head should be kept cool by cold applies tions and the feet worm by hot baths; also massage the limbs and back and give tepid baths daily. fc-omeUmes headaches are hereditary, and poison of the blood may cause them, arising from being born of gouty or rlnMima tic nr Hnriifnlmisj narpntn- Sea air and sea. bathing are recommended, recom-mended, for fuoh children, and let them live out of dnors all they can. Too little blood and too little fresh air cause many headaches. Good food a,nd gentle exercise will correct this in time. Blows on the head or injury of any kind will produce pain in the head, when of course rest is the medicine required, re-quired, with cold cloths on the head and hot foot baths. The majority of headaches in children are caused by bad air in bedrooms and school rooms, and faulty diet at home. Correct these and usually the headaches will disap-pea disap-pea r. Four hours is tho limit of time a child should go without food during the day. Don't go to the other extreme, ex-treme, however, and let them have "bites" at all hours of the day. Meals at regular intervals and nothing in be- tween should be a rule, rigidly kept. ! Never let the children's bed be pushed against the wall at night or back In an alcove. There should be a free current of air ail around if you want them to grow up healthy and ' ptrong. The window should never be shut and a wide-open one, even in the depth of winter, will do them no harm, j once they grow accustomed to it. See ' that their eyes are shelteredd from the light. A strong light falling on the eyes when any one is asleep weakens them and the sleep is pot refreshing. THE SUNDAY MENU. BREAKFAST." Fruit. Cereal and Cream. Boiled Salt Mackerel. Creamed l'ot- tets.
