THE FRENCH KNOT
HAS ADDED INTEREST TO EM-
Just Now It Is the Most Popular of
All Stitches Wild Carrot Lends
Itself to Many Graceful
The revival of Interest In the French
knot as a medium for embroidery has
Riven us ninny Interesting pli-cos of
fancy work in which few if any. other
stitches are employed. We see scarfs
table covers center pieces bureau
scarfs and even borders to curtains
developed entirely in Innumerable
knots so closely set as to make then
work appear like a great raised mass
of tiny composite flowers.
Probably one of the best subjects
for this French knot treatment Is the
wild carrot which lends Itself to
many graceful designs. The hug
flower heads are woiked by a collec-
tion of closely set knots onch one of
which is made very tightly and
smoothly and set close together.
The trouble with most embroider-
ers Is that thoy do not attempt to
do those knots evenly so rough loose
ends and loops result.
To make a knot corectly the thread
must be brought through the material
exactly whore tho knot Is to go. Then
wind the thread around the needle
two or three times. The oftener it is
done tho larger and Armor will be
the knot. Put the needle down close
beride where the thread came up.
The most Important part of the
work Is at this point for if the
thread is not held perfectly Unit with
the thumb the looped effect is inev-
itable. Though the French knot is now em-
ployed almost exclusively for floral de-
signs. It has served for other purposes
In times past.
In the earliest ecclesiastical embroi-
deries It was used to represent tha.
hair of men and angels while in
even more ancient examples of Chi-
nese art needle work it was employed
for the flesh of the queer celestial fig-
ures and was scattered like stipple
over the entire surface of the em-
broidery. To-day the French knot Is much
used Instoad of embroidered dots on
conventional bindings and trimmings
but is scarcely -as serviceable espe-
cially for materials that require laun-
dering as the raised dot In satin
stitch which washes much better.
KEEPS THE JEWELS SAFE.
Design for Traveling Case for Precious
A very useful suggestion for a trav-
eling jewel case Is given In the ac-
companying Illustration. This neat
little case is of so simple a design
that It might be niado at home quite
easily. It Is carried out in strong silk
or brocaded satin and lined with
chamois leather tho pockets being
also made of leather so that they may
hold the various trinkets without any
likelihood of their getting scratched
or spoilt. Each little pocket is fasten-
ed with a button and the smaller re-
ceptacles in the center are iateaded
to boW jewels and gold while the ob-
long pockets in the Haps above and
below wight be need as a safe resting
place for notes cheques or even im-
portant letters. Tied securely with
ribbon bows this case should prove
very useful for taking on long jour-
neys etc It will occupy very little
space in an ordinary band bag aad

MADE UP IN VELVETEEN.
Dressy Suit In Which Small Boy Ap-
pears at His Best.
Velveteen Is one of the nicest ma-
terials for quite a little boy's suit
and If of n good quality will wear well.
Our modol is in a pretty shade of dark
blue. The knickers are quite the first
she; they are straight at the knees
being turned up with an inch-wide
The tunic Is double-breasted
fastening Invisibly down the right
side. A white leather belt Is worn
just below tho waistline: It Is passed
through two tiny straps that are sewn
each side the tunic. The collar is
of white silk trimmed with a frill of
the same and lace Insertion.
Material required: Three yards vel-

Some Exquisite Combinations in Popu-
Long and short kimonos there are
such as every one Is familiar with of
flowered and plain silks and cotton
crepe; but imagine a kimono of pale
gray crepe over which straggles a
white vistaria vine growing la Its nat-
ural fashion a little heavily across
the shoulders and sending out deli-
cate creepers to the furthest edge of
the sleeves and hem of the skirt. The
only touch of color in this picture is
the coft greea of the leaves and gray
brown of tho stems.
Another exquisite combination Is
seen In a kimono of heavy soft fabric
which looks like an Ottoman silk. Of
pale pink. It Is embroidered with
branches of cherry blossoms the an-
gular hare brown branches dotted
with the pink and white flowers
spreading In the natural manner over
the whole garment
A kimono of pale blue crepe has
pink roses growing rather boldly up
from Its hem and a flight of swallows
across tho shoulders. Another has
storks flying here and there In the
wide expanse of blue.
Thero Is also a kimono of that
magnificent shade of Japanese red em-
broidered in palest pink and another
of very dull purple both of these
crepe. Last and most expensive of all
but as is often the case by no means
the most beautiful is a black satin
kimono heavily embroidered with gold
which costs J 300.
These kimonos are all made in Ja-
pan and though many are cut just
as a Japanese woman would wear
them with a scant skirt others have
extra fullness let Into the back seam
from the waist down which makes
them more comfortable and graceful
from the western point of view.
Washing a Crape Shawl.
This handsome crape shawl may be
washed at home If a little care Is
Prepare a suds of luke-warm water
using only a pure white soap. Do not
use hot water which yellows silk npr
rub the soap on the fabric
In fact do not rub at all but dip the
shawl up aad down squeezing gently
between the hands until all the soiled
spots are removed.
Rlase la a little light blue water fol-
lowed by two or three times through
clear luke-warm water. Be extreme-
ly careful about the bluing as silk
takes is up very readily.
Do sot iron. Press out betweea the
bands as much water as possible and
then pin the shawl to a ciean Hat sur-
face which has first been covered with
a fresh piece of muslin. Smooth out
every wrinkle in plaaiag but do not
strata or pall at the shawl.
If the shawl has h acorn o very yellow
with age the drylag should be done in
the hot sm.

pariiele of moisture has been ab-
sorbed. Suit Belts.

HOMEMADE TRAP NEST.
Trap Nest which Vorks as Well as
More Elaborate Ones.
Seven years ago I devised a trap
nest which is simple and works well.
I can find no fault with It that does
not apply to any other kind writes a
correspondent of Farm and Home.
Tho constant attention they require Is
more than I care to give so I do not
use them now. They are simple of
construction and anybody with eyes
and hands can make Uiem. The first
tiling is a box 13 or 14 Inches wide
and deep and two feet long. Nail a
threo or four inch board across cen-
ter on bottom to retain nesting ma-
terial. Cut an opening In one end

door 7xS Inches. Nail somo small

dle 2A or three inches long. Fasten
one end to the door the other to side
so that when tho door is pushed In

pull it back shut.
Fasten with two short nails or
screws a piece of rat spring b like
those used In corsets at the opposite
side of door on the floor of nest box
Raise this spring and have it just
long enough to prop the door two-
thirds open. Have a little notch cu'
in door to hold It up. When the hen
pushes ber way Into the nest the door
will relieve this spring and when the
hen steps into nest compartment the
door closes. Put oa a check so the

are living animals or Insects and if
they haven't enough of the proper

The fact that you can give them their
winter's supply of food all at once
(If they havea't already got It for
themselves) Is no excuse for not giv-
ing It to them at the proper time.
Look them up. If they havea't a

FEEDING FOWLS IN WINTER.
How a Successful Woman Poultry
Raiser Manages Her Flock.
I do not know as my method of
feeding has any particular virtue In It
but at any rate I get a fair amount of
eggs from my fowls In tho winter sea-
son so I believe that my methods aro
not very" far wrong writes Carrie Vin-
ton in Farmers' Review. As early in
the morning as tho fowls can seo to
pick up feed I give them a feeding of
whole grain which I scatter in litter
on tho feeding floor. The fowls hop
down from the roosts and begin to get
to work scratching in the litter. As
they are all very hungry at that time
they work with vigor and this makes
them warm. On some of the very
cold mornings when I go to tho poul-
try house the fowls have their feath-
ers puffed up all around them to keep
a good cushion of air around their
bodies. They however soon lose this
appearance of coldness after they
have scratched in the litter for a few
At noon again I give them more
grain in the litter and they havo to
do more scratching. I notico that
some of the hens that are inclined to
be lazy do not like this sort of thing
but they havo to get to work or go
hungry. Since I havo been feeding all
my grain In litter I have not had any
over-fat hens. At noon also I give tho
fowls tho roqts they are to have and
I find that mangles and sugar beets
are particularly good. The fowls also
like turnips though I notice that some
farmers report that their fowls do not
care for them. I feed the roots whole
when the weather Is mild and that
gives the fowls more cause for exer-
cise. But in the cold weather I feed
the roots chopped or mashed for the
whole roots would freeze in a short
time during our coldest days.
Cabbages I feed to a limited extent
but they do not seem so necessary
when the fowls have turnips and
beets. However cabbages are easy to
ieep from month to month and make
a good source of supply of green food
when the other kinds run out. A
Mttle while before dark I feed a mash
as hot as the fowls can eat it and
chey seem to relish it greatly. I think
that the lower animals appreciate
warm food about as much s we do.
This mash Is composed of different
things. Bran enters Into It and some
corn meal and shorts help make up
fhe mixture. But the largest ingre-
dient is ground oats for the oats are
very valuable as food for fowls. The
fact that thoy are so evenly balanced
in their constituents makes it advis-
able to feed them in some form or
other. When I can get meat meal I
put some in but perhaps not more
than enough to flavor the mass. I
feed ground bone on which there Is
some meat and this makes It unneces-
sary to feed large quantities of meat

Keeps Bees Strong.
Many experienced beekeepers con-
tend that it Is not worth while to re-
move bees fcr the sake of getting rid
of the moths Vigor and strength aro
the only reliable protection. If n
colony has a young queen and Is
strong in numbers they will carry out
the eggs and moths as fast as they
are found. Sometimes they will sting
the moths to death or will seal them
to the bottom or xoue other part of
the hive. Italianising the apiary la
also recommended to reduce tho trou-
ble with moths.

AIR IN THE BEDROOM.

It goes without Baying that tho bed-

and a3 wholesome as day air. Night

Stains made by medicine and lini-

in the hands of an amateur. Iodino

the spots with strong ammonia until
it fades after which wash with tepid
water and strong soap. Ammonia is
equally good for removing cod liver
oil stains. Fuller's earth made into
a paste and thickly applied to tho
spots will also remove them.
The Clothes Tree.
An article of furniture too seldom
used is tho clothes "tree" resembling
the posts of our grandmother's four-
post bedstead. It stands on three feet
and has half a dozen prongs or hooks.
As It takes up so little floor space and
holds so many garments it is an in-
valuable article. In a small hall or
vestibule it takes the place of the hat
rack and in a larger hall it comple-
ments the table on which gentlemen's
hats are laid. For tho necessary air-
ing of one's clothes over night it is
preferable to chairs as it can so eas
ily be set out of the sleeping room.
In the bathroom it is especially con-
venient To Preserve Raisins.
Late in the fall or early In winter
as soon as tho fresh seeded raisins

during the hot weather. Remove from
boxes and pack Into glass fruit jars.
Set tho jars in a pan of cold water;
put on the stove and boll until
hot through (about one hour). Then
seal the bottles tight and the raisins
will keep moist and fresh until the
next winter. It is best to put a block
of wood in tho pan under the bottles to
keep them from cracking.
