A Western man has patented a. movable hey beard-for musical instruments, by means of which the music is transposed, so that transposition by the player is unnecessary. To prevent damage to furniture dusting, the wooden or metal portion of the brush is provided with a cap or band of rubber, which slips over the handle and covers the back. A Brazilian has patented an artificial tooth, which is hollow and has a valve In one side through which the air is exhausted to cause the tooth to grip the jan- after the tooth has been fitted to the gum. The head of a newly designed brush is made reversible by being pivoted on a bolt, at the center, adjusted by a thumbscrew, to bring the rear portion of the brush into use when the front part is worn out. Clay pipes can be colored to imitate meerschaums by a new glazing composed of gum dammar dissolved in turpentine and mixed with polishing copal varnish, the pipes being then baked at about 160 degrees. A Frenchman has designed a bicycle hub which has flanges projecting from the hub. through which the spokes pass from one side of the rim to the other, screw threads being formed at each end of the spoke. For applying dye to the human hair, furs, etc., a brush with a comb pivoted thereto Is used, the comb being used to spread the hair out, in order that the brush, saturated with the liquid dye, may reach all parts of it. Invalids can be given tub baths by means of a newly patented tub which is made of collapsible rubber, with a number of rubber tubes arranged along the sides and bottom, to be inflated after the patient is placed upon the collapsed bath, causing the tub to assume its proper shape.

I wrote a ditty to my love And praised the fairness of her face, The sweetness of the tiny mouth, And every dear, bewitching grace. But most of all, midst lover's sighs, Sad they could not be written down, I raved about my sweetheart's eyes, Those dancing, glancing eyes of brown. Days passed, and soon a message came: "I like your verses, but must stay Your erring rhyming, for my eyes Are not a 'charming brown,' but gray!" Maude D. V.

Not the least attractive part of this garment are the quaint elbow sleeves, simply made of embroidered flannel and gathered under band and bow of yellow ribbon at the elbow. The embroidered flounce below matches-that on the collar. Overgktrtft Are Here. Autumn gowns will be much trimmed. The overskirt is with us again —yet one slim in proportions, not detracting in any way from the length of the figure. When the overskirt is A Woman Who Knew How to Make Money Mrs. Clara McAdow, of Billings, Mont., has proved that women can go "a-mining" and sometimes do better than a man can. A few years ago, when the Northern Pacific railroail , was building, Mrs. McAdow found herself with $500 and no means of support. She concluded to go to Montana. But lest she should spend all her money, she took only enough to pay her way, and two weeks' board. This would require her to go to work at once. Getting a letter of introduction to the chief engineer of the road from an obliging fellow-traveler, she presented herself and asked for employment. She said she could do clerical work and knew something o£ nursing. She was accordingly engaged at n small salary. She soon informed herself about the country, and, as she was a good talker, distinguished strangers to whom the region was to be exploited were put in her hands. As soon as Mrs. McAdow had saved enough money she bought a town lot n Billings, and a few weeks later sold it for double the money. As there was no 'bank in the town she used to do a banking business in the street, by cashing checks. Then she went Into real estate, and when she broke her leg she had a map of the town hung in front of her bed,' and carried on business from her bed. She was not then Mrs. McAdow. Mr. McAdow was a storekeeper, who had taken Spotted Horse mine for a debt. One day she THE LONE WOMAN TRAVELER. The "new woman" doesn't propose to miss the delights of travel simply for lack of a protector. She knows how to take care of herself, and when she starts oft' on a little journey nowadays it isn't with the nervous drcnd that something's going to happen bo- fore she reaches her destination—it' ever she does, but she proceeds at once to make herself comfortable and to thoroughly enjoy her little rub up against the outside world. But although she rests secure in a delightful feeling- of safety, it has never occurred to the general woman that "making her to travel in safety" is a'business nil in itself. She may have heard, for example, that the' great New York Central llailroad is the only route in the United States that is completely equipped with the world-famous lock and block system of signals, but that doesn't mean anything to her until you explain that by this system every foot over which she. travels is carefully and unceasingly watched and signalled day and night, and that collision is practically impossible, because a train cannot enter a given block or section until the train ahead has passed out, and that even if there should be another train following on the same track the engineer knows all about it through the electric telegraph, which is part of the system, thus making assurance doubly sure. If the lone woman happens to ho going to New York City she need have no dread of landing alone in the confusion of a bip-. strange place if she travels by the New York Central. All she has to do is to speak to one of the red-capped attendants—free service— who will carry her bag-, answer her questions and show her to cab, car or elevated train. Another thing, she lands right in the heart of the city within a step of a dozen or more of its leading hotels— and she should bear in mind that this is the only railroad depot in all New York City. The New York Central might aptly be called "the lone woman's route.''— Fashions. He Know Him. Again it was the. terrible sinall brother doing the entertaining until his sister could put in an appearance.

A gown typical of the season is of pale green foulard. The yoke, of shirred green chiffon, extends well below the arms and is partly concealed by a pouched bodice drawn up In two points on the yoke and fastened under bows of ribbon. The sleeves are tight fitting and end at the elbow with a lace flounce. On the skirt the curved and pointed outline of the bodice is carried out in a deep ruffle, which is fastened to the skirt with ribbon bows. Stop! Women, And Consider the All-Important Fact, That in addressing Mrs. you are confiding your private ills to a •woman—a tvoinan whose experience in treating woman's diseases is greater than that of any living physician—male or female. You can talk freely to a woman •when It is revolting to relate your private troubles to a man—besides, a man does not understand—simply because he is a man. Many women suffer in silence and drift along from bad to worse, knowing full well that they ought to have immediate assistance, but a natural modesty impels them to shrink from exposing themselves to the questions and probably examinations of even their family physician. It is unndc- cssnry. Without n-^ncy or price you can consult a woman, whose knowledge from actual experience is greater than any local physician in the world. The following invitation is freely offered: a. - accept it in the stutie spirit: • - ' MRS. PINKHAM'S STANDING INVITATION. 'Women suffering from any form of female weakness are invited to promptly, communicate with Mrs. Pinkhum, at Lynn, Mass. All letters arc received, opened,iread and answered by women only, A woman can freely talk of her private illness to a woman; thus has been established the eternal confidence be- tWccn Mrs. Pinkham and the women of America which has never been broken. Out of the vast volume of experience which she has to draw from, it is more than possible thatshehas gained the very knowledge thatwillhclpyour ease. She asks nothing in return except your good-will, and her advice has relieved thousands. Surely any woman, rich or poor, is very foolish if she does not take advantage of this generous offer of assistance.—Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Co., Lynn, Mass. " The present Mrs. Pinkham's experience in treating female ills is unparalleled, for years she worked side by side with Mrs. Lydia E. Piukham, and for sometime past has had solo charge of the correspondence department of her great business, treating by letter as many as a hundred thousand ailing women a year." SOME PALL FASHIONS. sent for him and offered him $11,000 for it. He was touched by her lack of buslnes sagacity, and chivalrously told her that it was not worth it. She persisted In buying it, and In less than a year she took out of it $90,000 in gold. Mr. McAdow subsequently married her. She is now the treasurer of the Billings board of trade, and Is worth several hundred thousand dollars. She conducts business in, her own name, and her husband is only her connubial partner.—New York Evening Mail aud Express. House JucUct. ' Now that cool days are creeping on, a house gown of soft white flannel suggests the delight of hours in a. cozy room. Here is a jacket that is charm- ling in color and make and could easily •be copied at home. In its present coloring it is prettiest for a dark-haired maid. The material—French flannel—is white, with a silk embroidered dot of golden yellow. The jacket is made with plenty of fullness both front and back, p 1 ' the fullness being drawn under a broad yellow ribbon about the waist. The neck opens d?ep, revealing the soft throat, in a. broad collar made of plain white flannel and edged with an embroidered flounce. 4 fold pf yel)o\v satin cpneeatg tfcg Join* How to IntcroHt Children In Work. Constant changes in occupation is the law of the growing child, because the law of his growth demands it. The work of the home and its environs is admirably adapted to this necessary, constant change. Let the children work with you. Share with them, as they with you, in all the occupations o£ the home. Talk, explain, sing, while at work, and there will be no lack of interest. It is only when the little ones are left to work alone or with other children, on tasks which they do not comprehend, that they become listless. The healthy, happy child Is naturally an enthusiast in anything which he undertakes. He likes work. His play is work—business—and he would prefer to spend his energies in some way that will "help," If ho only knows haw to do It. Of course, he must not be kept at one thing until the muscles and faculties employed become wearied. After he has kept his arms, hands, legs and feet moving in a certain way for a few minutes, he must change. He will change so as to bring other parts into play, unless he is arbitiarily prevented; and when that happens he loses interest and becomes a dull, sullen, uninteresting "bother of a boy," judged by the ordinary onlooker, when In fact he is only tired out and suffering. Make the work light and pleasant, and do not let the children be counted out of the home-making and housekeeping. A Wc«j»irg Clmaco of 14 re. Writing in "the English Illustrated Magazine on the above subject, Mr. J. Holt Schooling says that "of 1,000 women at age 20, 940 live ten years more, thus 94 in 100 live ten years more, and 6 do not; the chance at age 20 of a woman living, to age 30 being, therefore, nearly 16 to I in favor of living. Similarly, of 1,000 women living at age 30, 806 live twenty years more; so we may say that 80 in 1QO live to age 60, and that 20 do not; .the chance at age 30 of a woman living to age 50 being, therefore, 4 to 1 in favor of living. Again, of 1,QQO wpxnen at age 60, 250 live twenty yeai'3 m_pr$ i. ?., 2,5 in 100 live to age 80, a'ad ' 100 do not; the chance »t &ge $$& a/ living to 80 heinj; J jjj §.
