9!rl Had Running Sores from Eczema
—Boy Tortured by Poison Oak—
Both Cured by Cuticura.
"l^ist year, after having my little
girl treated by a very prominent phy
slclan for an obstinate case of eczema.
1 resorted to the Cuticura Remedies,
and was so well pleased with the al
most Instantaneous relief afforded that
wo discarded the physician's prescrip-
tion and relied entirely on tho Cuti-
cura Soap, Cuticura Ointment, and Cu-
ticura Pills. When we commenced
with the Cuticura Remedies her feet
and limbs were covered with running
gores. In about six weeks wo had her
completely well, and there hart been
no recurrence of the trouble.
"In July of this year a little boy in
our family poisoned his hands and
arms with poison oak, and in twenty-
four hours his hands and arms were a
mass of torturing sores. Wo used
only the Cuticura Remedies, and In
about th roe weeks his hands and arms
healed up. Mrs. Lizzie Vincent Thomas,

just bubbling with good humor.
"What are you feeling so uncom-

"Why, my best girl went nnd got

ping Bidder on the back.
"Seems to me that's about the iart
thing for a chap to feel jolly over."
"What!" said Kidder. "It was me

And so the cigars were on Bidder.—

•'.riporor. M.trem Vit litis. Kven In a
palace, tiu , it may be ttved happily—-
but that hi.^nllirant little o\*n belong*
n>. truly to one - tatetnent as to the
other, for to live either well or hap
plly in a palace is to do ho in the fact*
of special obstacle^, and Is Indeed a
rare achie vement. Hy just so much
U5 a palace is palatial is it unhomelike
—a place where only the most care
ful and persistent cherishing can nre-
Berve those home virtues that often
llourish so sweetly and readily in the
simplicity and < j/. In ess of a common
homo. Little wonder is it, then, that
palace dwellers are often glad, after a
brief trial, to escape as soon as they
may. Millionaire after millionaire
builds his palace, only to weary of it.
One great mansion after another is
closed, leased or sold; especially city
mansions, where there is not, as in
the great country estates, any refresh
ing adjunct of natural beauty to offset
the smother of artificial luxury. Few,
indeed, of such houses remain long
enough in one family to gather tradi-
tions and associations; few are in the
same ownership even enough brief
years to enchain the affections of a
single generation. Besides, however
artistic, however truly magnificent a
private palace may be, does such a
setting befit the private life? For
public purposes, doubtless, beauty
cannot be upon too majestic a scale;
for libraries, museums, colleges, halls
of justl^o and assembly let artist and
architect compass their utmost, hut
people of the best taste and finest
wisdom, in building a home, will de-
sire the beauty of homelikeness first,
and all other beauty, whether of
rich or simple detail, afterward and
subordinate. Not long ago, relates
the Youth's Companion, a vast marble
palace was pointed out to a young girl
as the place to which the multimil-
lionaire owner was about to bring his
bride, whom she had known at col-
lego. She viewed it with sincere dis-
may. "Oh, poor Marion!" she cried.
"Must she really live there? What a
pity she didn't marry a husband who
could provide her a comfortable
Athletics in English Colleges.
The first number of the new Oxford
and Cambridge Review has its inevita-
ble article on athletics in the univer
sities. One gets from it, however, a
new impression of how far behind tho
procession the English really are. The
writer objects to the time spent in
preparation for the university boat
race as "excessive." Hut what is his
idea of excess? "it has become cus-
tomary for both the Oxford and Cam
bridge crew to spend at least a week
on the upper reaches of the Thames
at Henley or Coolham." Tell it not
in Now London! Hut the English are
coming on. They are waking up to
the truth that athletics is the great
pursuit of the undergraduate, and
must dominate even his hours of sup-
posed study, declares the New York
Post. To talk athletic "shop" all the
time is becoming as common in the j
universities of England as in our own; i
and tho danger of allowing any Intel- j
lectual interest to crowd out absorb
ing attention to "the record." and to
competitions in games and sports, is
now thoroughly understood The true
attitude was neatly expressed by one
university coach, when he said "You
can't row, because you aren't always
thinking about it. Now, when you're
in lecture, press your heels against
the floor and think of bringing >our
body back with the feet firm on thu
Oov. Floyd of New Hampshire i
doubts whether tho summer boarder j
business has added to the prod's of !
the majority of New Hampshire farm
crs, because, he says, it has helped
creato the unrest and discontent
which nro fatal to good farming hy
spreading the idea that the summer
hoarder business Is an easier and
more genteel way to got a. llw:v: iban
by having crops or cattle. When a
farmer gets that into his head," ho
adds, "and mortgages his farm to fit
his honu for boarders and negli cis to
plant a.nl hoe because he expects ho
will be busy waiting upon boarders, in
nine cases out of ten the mortgage
will sooner or later eat him up." Hut
Isn't it (he usual New Hampshire idea
that the women can take car>i of the
summer boarders while the farmer
runs the farm?

How One Woman Has Done Away j
with Much Labor.
A woman who does her own work 1
and yet likes to entertain a good deal
has brought order uut of chaos and
nmdo the work lighter for herself by
limiting her dinner to three hot dirlies.
She servos first Iced canteloupe, grape
fruit or oysters, according to the sea j
son; then meat. potatoes and one veg |
otable. Salad and dessert are pre- |
pared before hand, and so is the coffee. I
She erves all but the three hot dishes |
—which, of course, must be brought j
from the kitchen—from a small serv- I
Ing table at her side, which has two 1
shelves beneath It and an outstanding
bracket shelf for the clean and used
dishes. The coffee, In a French coffee
pot, stands on one of the brackets of
the serving table and boils merrily
PLUMS SERVED IN BATTER.
Dessert That Is Especially Popular
with Masculine Palates.
Make a batter with two beaten eggs,
five tablespoonfuls of flour, rather
more than a pint of milk, and a pinch
of salt. Remove the stones from a
quart of large, ripe plums, crack them,
put the kernels inside of the plums
again, mix the fruit with two heaping
tablespoonfuls of moist sugar and stir
it lightly Into the batter. Turn it Into
a buttered pudding dish, and bake in a
hot oven until done, about -10 minutes.
Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top
and serve hot with half a cupful of but-
ler, one cupful of sugar and one well-
beaten egg stirred to a cream and
flavored with half a teaspoonful of nee-
toi ine. Tills dessert is especially popu
lar with masculine palates.
Belt for Old Gloves.
Kvery girl finds in her possession
one or more pairs of discarded long
gloves. Pretty and durable suede
belts can be made from the same by
simply ripping up tlte seam and cut-
ti.*! off the hand. The glove is then
the right shape for the belt when
opened out and two pieces joined in
the center. I.lne the glove with silk
cut on the bias, turn over the edges,
and stitch on the machine. Also
stitch the back and finish with three
gold bosses or fiat buttons covered
with kid cut from the hands of the
gloves. Another way of finishing Is to
tie the kid In three or four small bows.
For the front use a pearl buckle or
a small steel one covered with the
To Clean Trimmings.
Among the new embroideries are
those In raised Eilver and gold work
These are hand oino and expensive,
and one who kuows says they should
never be brushed in the ordinary way
at cleaning trimmings, but that a piece
of crimson velvet should be taken and
rubbed very slowly and gfcntly over
them. Of course, we are all familiar
with the use of black velvet as a dust
.'loth for hats and fine black materials,
the flue nap penetrating and carrying
iway dust without injury where noth
Ing else could, but what virtue there
,s In crimson velvet, aside from its tex
lure, is hard to guess, but It is possi-
ble, of course, that there may be some
effect in the dye used.
Cold-Water Process of Canning.
Wash the fruit thoroughly, and in
case of rhubarb cut into small pieces,
t s for pies. If gooseberries are used,
top and tail them. Pack into glass
Jars that have been sterilized and then
1111 the javs to overflowing with fresh-
ly drawn water. Put on the covers
and let them stand overnight. Hy the
next morning you will find that the
fruit has taken up more or less of the
water, and that there is quite a vacuum
to be tilled Drain off the water and
fill again with fresh cold water to
overflowing, letting the water couie
with sufficient force to drive out any
air. Then seal closely and put away
for winter use.
For every quart of rough red goose-
hen les which have been stemmed and
ended, take one pound of white sugar,
dissolve it in the preserving kettle
with enough water to make a thick
sirup. Li i boll 20 minutes, skim-

The trust magnate leaped up from

Colleges Undesirable Fire Risks.
Col!t?ges are now regarded as rather
undesirable insurance risks, and it is
probable that the rate will be gen-

have occurred in college buildings, en-
tailing a loss of $10,500,000 In money
and a heavy loss of life. This malies
the average money loss over }13,000.

Genuine Must Bear
Physicians Recommend Castoria
/^ASTORIA has met with pronounced favor on the part of physicians, pharma-
ceutical societies and medical authorities. It is used by physicians with
results most gratifying. The extended use of Castoria is unquestionably the
result of three facts: First—The indisputable evidence that it is harmless:
Second That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves, but assimi-
lates tho food: Third—It is an agreeable and perfect substitute for Castor Oil
It is absolutely safe. It does not contain any Opium, Morphine, or other narcotic
and does not stupefy. It 13 unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey's
Cordial, etc, This is a good deal for a Medical Journal to say. Our duty, how-
ever, is to expose danger and rccord the means of advancing health. Tho day
for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorancc ought to end. To
our knowledge, Castoria is a remedy which produces composure and health, by
regulating the system not by stupefying it—and our readers are entitled to
the information.—Hall's Journal of Health.
Letters from Prominent PhysScsans
addressed to Chas. H. Fletcher.
Dr. B Halstcad Scott, of Chicago, Ills., Bays: "I have prescribed your
Castoria often for infants durins my practice, and find It very satisfactory."
Dr. William Belmont, of Cleveland, Ohio, says: "Your Castoria stands
first in its class. In my thirty years of practice I can say I never havo
round anything that so filled the place."
r>r. J. II a aft, of Brooklyn, K Y., saya: "I hare used your Castoria and
found it r.n excellent remedy in ay household and private practice for
many years. The formula is excellent."
Dr. R. J. Hamlcn, of Detroit. Mich., eayn: "I prescribe your Castoria
extensively, aa I have never l'ound anything to equal it for children's
troubles. I am aware that thero are imitations in tho field, but I always
eee that my patients get Fletcher's."
Dr. Wm. J McCrann, of Omaha, Neb., says: "Aa the father of thirteen
rh..dren I certainly know something about your great medicine, and asldo
from my own family experience I have in my years of practice found Cas-
toria a popular and eulcient remedy in almost every homo."
Dr. J. R. Clausen, of Philadelphia, Pa., gays: "The name that yonr Cas-
tor a liaa made for itself in tho tens of thousands of homes blessed by the
presence of children, scarcely needs to be supplemented by tho endorse-
ment of tho medical profession, but I, for one, most heartily endorse It and
believe it an excellent remedy."
Dr. R. M. Ward, of Kansas City, Mo.,.says: "Physicians generally do not
prescribe proprietary preparations, but in tho cane of Castoria my expert-
ence, l.ka that of many other physicians, has taught me to make an ox-
cept.on. I rrtscriho your Castoria In my practlco becauso 1 have faund It
ta e a thoroughly reliable remedy for children's complaints. Any phyai-
clan who has raised a family, as I have, will join m in heartiest recom-
mendation of Castoria."
