should be inviting, with fresh, crlap
sheets, fragrant with the odor of lav-

stuffed with feathers, should be cov-

the night air entering their sleeping
apartments, but nothing is more im-

a good current of fresh air, and noth-

the old dead air again and again.
Few women value and appreciate
the necessity of a light toilet. The
hair should have the "hundred strokes"
of the brush, the teeth careful atten-
tion, the mouth well rinsed with myrrh
and water, and the hands carefully
washed and anointed with cold cream,
which will keep them soft and white.
Night is the time to take a warm bath,
and this is also an aid to sleep, for the
steaming and rubbing produce fatigue.
Night is also the proper tinip to take
a facial steam bath, after which a lit-
tle cold cream should be applied.

SOCIETY WOMAN EMBEZZLES,
Treasurer of An Orphan Asylum Ad«

A prominent society woman of St,
Paul has embezzled $3,200 belonging to
\ charitable Institution. For several
weeks the women managers of tha
Protestant Orphan asylum have dis-
cussed tha defalcation in meeting*
pledged to secrecy. Though the book*
of the asylum have showed a large
balance, when money was wanted it
could not be had. The treasurer fin-
ally stated that she had given the
money to her husband and could not
obtain It. When the officers of the in-
stitution applied to the hank where
the funds had been deposited they
were refused a statement, the treas-
urer having ordered that statement*
should be given only to herself. A
new treasurer was elected and a de-
mand made for a settlement. The
former treasurer then wrote a letter
to the officers stating that the missing
money had been used to pay for the
living expenses of her family during
the past three or four years, and that
she could not replace it. The asylum’s
officers refuse to discuss the matter
for publication, hoping to recover
seme of the missing funds. The asyl-

countess remains in seclusion, but can
be seen from a distance any day walk-
ing through the grounds of her coun-
try house in her gown of black and

almost like a woman of the peasantry.
The gown in which she was recently
sketched was a black and white striped
oriental silk, very thin, yet with a
threud of cotton in it to make it a good

and the skirt made very godet to give
it "hang.” The sleeves were very
close fitting except for small shoulder

countess are made In this simple way,
and over them she wears an apron of
plain white linen.
Hints to Home Drenniimkt’r*.
In ninety cases out of one hundred
a dress made at home is undeniably
second rate, or worse, in that mysteri-
ous quality called "style.” Why It Is
that professional dressmakers, who are
presumably women of little education
and no particular talent, can produce
satisfactory gowns with a pronounced
chic in cut and style that proclaims
them at once to be “custom made,"
while the amateur, with greater taste
and cultivated artistic Intelligence and
GIRLS ATTACKED BY A BULL.
They Were Cycling Through it I’ulurt
Mini Were Treed.
The Misses Ixittle and Carrie Sabin
of Cehecton, N. Y. had an exciting and
perilous adventure with an angry bull.
They were riding their bicycles
through a pasture field, near Harrison
ridge a day or two ago, when the ani-
mul charged upon them. The young
women made a hurst of speed, but ter-
ror robbed them of power and the pur-
suer gained rapidly. In despair they
sprang from their wheels and scram-
bled up a tree, reaching a safe position
just in time. The bull, “robbed of his
prey,” as the young women said later,
then turned his attention to the bi-
cycles, and th" wheelwomen from their
uncomfortable perch watched helpless-
ly while the animal wrecked thelt
wheels. For two hours the bull paced
around the tree, when a farmer ar-
rived and rescued the young women,
after driving the animal away.

raiding his granary, and he laid plans
to circumvent them. He asked hts son

WED IN SPITE OF DEATH.
Min Hrlintmaile Married on the Day of
Her Mother's Funeral.
All was ready for the marriage of
Miss Harriet M. Briusmade and S.
Robert Hart. The little house at No.
40 Spring street. New Haven, had been
newly painted and decorated. The
near friends of the couple had been
invited and the clergyman engaged!
And then came death without an in*

the door of the pretty home. Mrs.
Julia Brlnsmade, the mother of the
bride-to-be. died suddenly of heart
