The lower sheet should be long fnough to tuck in at the head under the mattress, also at i f't but this latter ia not always necessary at least a half yard. A sheet of this size should admit of being pinned to the mattress underneath almost in the middle of the bed; a safety pin should be used in doing this and care be taken that the sheet is pinned through to the mattress itself; .otherwise it is liable to tear. This sheet should be pinned so tightly that it distorts the shape of the mattress when first drawn around it in order to spread the mattress out afterwards and make the sheet fit taut across the bed without a wrinkle. If this is not done, as the restless sleeper moves about in the bed, ridges are formed in the sheet that cause distinct discomfort to her. The upper sheet should be put on the bed so that the hem will be wrong side up, for when this sheet Is turned down over the blanket at the top the hem will be uppermost and make an attractive and neat finish to the bed. It should also be tucked in securely at the foot to prevent pulling out and worrying the sleeper. If possible to make a selection in blankets, the choice should He in two thin ones rather than one heavy one, for the air gets in between the two blankets and helps to keep the sleeper warm, and the atmosphere of the bed pure; besides, the weight in bed clothing should always be a consideration, especially in cases of illness, for tha strength of the patient should go toward aiding in her recovery, not in Buport'j.g' an unneccessary burden of any iMnd. The outer covering of the bed is often n question of the ways and means of the house supply, or rather the linen closet: ut, as a rule, heavy spreads id: these, however, are good .. ... .s, for winter seasons.

Ooveir the skin well with lather an then let the dog wash himself off in a fot-tub set inside the larger bathtub, so that he can splash to his heart's content. If dogs are washed in this way regularly the constant scratching which makes them such a nuisance will be obviate1. Diet is important with a house dog, and only cooked food should be allowed. Once a day is quite sufficient to feed a dog that is small. A basin of fresh water should be kej.t where he can always find it. and for this purpose come attractive bowls marked in bold letters. "Dog." . A good romp in the fresh air at least every eight hours is positively essential to a dog's health. Completely Cured Me. W. F.

Ruches are still the favorite neck finish, and are used in gowns of all de scriptions, from the most elaborate sort to the simple shirtwaist dress. The stiff white stock and turnover coilar, so much worn several years ago, are still used to some extent, and for certain occasions are the only suitable choice, but in the lingerie, silk and crepe blouses and any costume which is not of the most severe type, the becoming ruche is generally seen. The washable kindg are the most practical for many uses, and for this reason the net or footing niching is a favorite, as it may be left in the neck of a wash blouse and laundered with it. The plaited chiffon ruches are also very pretty, but need constant replenishing, and can only be worn once or twice, so that they ure rather expen sive. There is also another sort of rueh-ing which is not washable, but looks very well in timply made gowns. It comes at '25 cents a box. which makes the cost of each rucho about tw cents. The skirt is of a folded stiffened net, finely plaited, and though not suitable for a very, elaborately trimmed blouse or frock, is very satisfactory for For a well-drossed woman fresh ruch-ing is, of course, essential, and it is much to be preferred that the simplest. most inexpensive sort to be worn anj that it be spotlessly fresh. On the whito lingerie blouses, of the lace trimmed and embroidered sort, half-inch wid colored ribbon is also used, either the plain gros-grain ribbon or else the -self -figured dotted or embroidered kind. The very thin handkerchiefs showing little plaidingy or cross bars in white thread across the surface are also in favor, and the mercerized linen varieties with colored borders and initials or figurings in the corners are still in vogue. The plain linen handkerchief, however, with a rather narrow hem and hand-embroidered initials in one corner are always very desirable and in good taste. New York Sun. GOOD TO KNOW. The reign of the blouse has caused fither a good deal of extra work in the household or has swelled the laundry bill to an undesirable extent. Apart from the fact that it is ?rood training for themselves, it is only fair that girls who wear many of these pretty garments should know how to wash and iron them, thereby doing something to keep the family purse heavier and lighten their mother's work. These directions, if carefully followed, will enable girls to do up their own waists. We will begin with the easiest and-plainest: The washing of prints is much the same as for woolens, that is to say there Is no soaking except in particular cases. The particular case in this instance is when you have a new waist, and are not quite sure if the colors are fast. In this case soak the waist in clear cold water, to which you have added a handful of salt. This makes the water colder, also harder. Its solvent powers are not so great, and in this way you can fix colors that have a slight tendency to "run." If you have made the waist yourself, and have a small scrap of the print, it can be tested first, which is the best way. You must now get your irons ready, and If you desire to have any pleasure in your work you must take pains to have them in good condition. In the first place they must be perfectly clean. A piece of brown paper well soaped and sprinkled with fine brick dust makes a good polisher in which to rub them when when in use. A small piece of beeswax tied up in muslin is excellent as a refresher to their smoothness and easy working. If laid on gas they must have a sheet of iron between them and the gas at first till they are heated, then they can be laid on the"g;is without the sheet if iron.- The reason for this is obvious. If cold iron comes in contact with the gas flame drops of moisture condense on its Surface, and the result would be rusty irons. Last of all to go into the dishwater are the pots and kettles. As with the plates, they, too. should be thoroughly freed from grease before entering the water-no hard task when one employs a small metal scraper sold for the purpose. A WOMAN'S WEAPON. A hai'roin has been said to be a woman's weapon and her tool as well, for the uses to which this modest little article of the feminine toilet is put are many and vari ous. It has been Known to pick a iocs and act as substitute for a safety pin, a hat fastener, a picture and a button hook. letter opener, and a cork-screw, but it has now risen to the dignity of a sculp tor's most favored tooL Miss Melva Beatrice Wilson would rather use a hairpin for her wax modeling than the best tool ever invented. A recent visitor to St. Michael's studio commented on the odd looking instrument which, with apparent magic, was rapidly defining a crouching leopard out of a shapeless mass of wax in the sculptor's hands. "That!" exclaimed Miss Wilson, when questioned about it. "Oh. that is only a hairpin, but I can do better work with that bent pin than with all my other tools combined. That is my -pet and I wouldn't lose it for anything, fome of my most successful designs hate heen modeled with that hairpin. It jdoes just what I want it to, and produces fined detail than I can get with the regulation tools." New York Sun. CORSET IMPORTANT FEATURE. The well-cowned woman has a lare supply of corsets and each is kept in its cwn perfumed silk bag. The whole set of a gown depends upon the proper fit of a corset, and no matter how poor a woman is. she can wear a calico gown with an air of distinction if she has on a well-made, well-fitted corset. Such a one costs $13 at a good eorsetiere's, but it mav cost much more if elaborately trimmed. At that price it is made to follow the lines of the figure and yet conceal Its defects if there are any and enhance its good qualities. The fad for slender waists has resulted in changes in underwear. It has nearly abolished the corset cover that useful article of dress which saves us so much money by keeping our corsets clean and protected from the abrasion of skirt belts. Women now wear chemises as a sort of combination of corset cover and -skirt, thus doing away with two waiot-1 bands or else they do not wear either chemise or corset cover, but only pliable eilk vesting; beneath the dress bodice ever the corset.

The fur sales interest many shoppers. In general it is better to buy furs from the most reliable furriers, but if one is a judge of furs she is perfectly safe in taking advantage of department store sales. Presumably the buyers for the fur department are as competent as other buyers, but the average demand in the shops is for rather cheap grades. The better grades may be had, but one should exercise care in selecting bargains. The large fur stores have less prejudice against carrying stock over from season to season. The styles change, but furs can be made over indefinitely. The best all-around fur is mink. It is never cheap to buy, but it outwears most furs and is really a better bargain in the end. It is one of the most becoming furs one can wear. The great objection to Persian lamb is its unbecomingness to most women. It is too dead black and unsympathetic for a colorless woman. Ermine is a good fur to buy if one's purse is long. It is a full dress fur, to be sure, but permissible with even simple gowns for evening, the theater, etc Just as almost every woman who can afford jewels wears them whether their good looks are enhanced or utterly extinguished thereby, so they wear ermine if they can get it. Nature triumphs over artistic discrimination in these cases. Moderate priced furs are black lynx, sable, fox and blue lynx. At this time very good sets are to be had under $o The pelerine and fiat boa are worn almost to the exclusion of other scarfs. Muffs are pillow-shaped and large in size. New York Post. THE BUREAU DRAWER. The bureau drawer, the bane of every normal woman's existence, is hard to manage. Inspired by a violent attack of neatness on a certain night, ordinarily after she has come home from the theater or evening party, she undertakes the difficult task and with superhuman effort and energy neatly folds all her neckties in one pile, belts In another and "turnovers" in another. The next morning she arises a little later than is advisable, is not over sweet tempered, makes a dash at her neat bureau drawer and in her frenzied search for her pet belt or ribbon all her work of the night before is in a state of upheaval. The proper piles have all become parts of one big blooming confusion. The first suggestion as a cure for this unsystematic arrangement is to have as few accessories as possible. Get rid of all the old neckties that are seldom worn and are simply kept for old time's skae. Then secure a collection of boxes of various sizes, each with a little lid that lifts on hinges, and in one box may be kept all that is needed of shoe-strings, in another handkerchiefs, in another ties, and so on. When the owner gets used to this very in expensive and thoroughly satisfactory ar rangement she will look with horror upon the old days when her top bureau drawer was in a state of chaos. Exchange. HOW TO PRESERVE A B0QUET. A florist of many years' experience gives the following recipe for preserving bouquets: When you receive a bouquet sprinkle it lightly with fresh water, then put it into a vessel containing some soapsuds, which nourish t:e roots and keep the flowers as bright as new. Take the bouquet out of the puds every morning and lay it sideways in fresh water, the stock entering first into tne water: keep it there a minute or two, then take it out and sprinkle the .flowers lightly with pure water. Replace the bouquet in the soapsuds, and the flowers will bloom as fresh as when first gathered. The soapsuds need to be chaneea evtry inira aay. uy observing these rules a bouquet can be kept bright and beautiful for at least a month and will last sun longer in a very passable state.

For existence which bric-a-brac may claim is true beauty, or, preferrably, usefulness combined with beauty. Jf we make all useful articles beautiful the useless bric-a-brac will be quite superfluous. What is beautiful bric-a-brac? The cost does not indicate beauty by any means. Beauty in bric-a-brac, as in everything eise. consists in simplicity ana harmony of line and color combined with perfection of execution. The useful articles should be analtedxto their uses, and those with no duty to perform other than to look beautiful should fulfill that duty without question, and should be limited to the smallest possible number. Both the use ful and the nonuseful should be in per- lect narmony with the room and with each other. A few questions would settle the fate of much bric-a-brac. Are you useful? Are you beautiful? Do you harmonize with the character and color of the room? Have you a character of your own? Are you in every way preferrable to the space you occupy ; Inexpensive but effective pieces of purely decorative bric-a-brac are placter casts. If well made, exact reproductions they are most satisfactory in soft ivory tints. Venus is always beautiful, and so is Nike. but there are innumerable other reproductions of the masterpieces in sculpture, both ancient and liiodern, which have not suffered at the hands of the cheaper workmen and are therefore more interesting and individual.

Like many other excellent persons, Aunt Emeline is not a church member, but she is a regular attendant at the village church, which 13 so near her cottage as to seem under the same roof. When, at the close of a recent sermon, the minister requested all those present who had never united with the church to retire at the end of service, everybody was surprised to see Aunt Emeline start down the aisle. 'Aunt Emeline," the minister called, softly, "that does not apply to you." "That isn't why I'm going," Aunt Emeline responded, serenely. "I smell my dinner burning up." Youth's Companion. STAR'S TEA TABLE JOKE. Telephone jokes may have their serious sides. A man who wanted to communicate with another named Jones looked in the directory and then called up the number. Presently came through the receiver a soft, feminine, "Hallo," and he asked, "Who is that?" "This is Mrs. Jones." "Have you any idea where your husband is?" He couldn't understand why she "rang off" so sharply, until he looked in the book again arid discovered that he had called uj the residence of a widow! Exchange. DO NAMES HAVE COLORS? A recent writer declares that certain colors are always suggested to him by the sound of various feminine names. To him the names of Mary, Iseult and Margaret represent the purest white. Chlorinda typifies a vivid red, while Jane, Henrietta and Gabrielle suggest the softest gray to the visual sense. Though the demon of jealousy is in no way associated with Valeria, Bernardino, Anastasia and Bertha; none the less does the author of the article aver that these names conjure up visions of the brightest green.
