LACE FOR WINDOW
ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE OF
Filet Panels Are the Latest, and Are
Very Popular—Other Materials
Liked by Up-to-Date House-
Nothing in household decoration has
changed more during the past few
years than window draperies. For
simple rooms two hangings are enough
—the long, thin curtains which hang
front the top of the casing to the bot-
tom of the sash, and the heavy cur-
tains which are hung over the thin
ones and drop just below the window
sill. For bedrooms, sash curtains are
sometimes necessar.M, and these are
fastened tightly against the window
from the middle to the bottom. Drap-
eries that reach to the door soon soil
and gather much dust.
Just, at present thetc is nothing
prettier than filet lacq panels for the
windows in the front of the house. It
is also ceen in some of the expensive
hotels. There is a delicacy about this
Italian lace that appeals to one at first
sight.t In decorating a window one
must bear in mind that it is seen from
the street as well as from the room.
There are several ways of using this
curtain. It may he stretched upon a
separate frame and sot in the window
sash directly against the glass, or it
may be attached to a small brass rod
fastened to the toi) of the window and
allowed to hang in straight lines just
below the window sill, in a house
whose windows are properly decorat-
ed, the curtains of each floor should
have a resemblance. Real lace can be
used on the lower floor, and imitation
on the others. If, however, panels are
used on the parlor floor, they should
also he at the other front windows.
Curtains need renewing oftoncr than
wall papers and much thought is need-
ed in buying wisely. If sash curtains
last two or three years, they have
done good service. Buy material that
will launder well and that is firmly
woven, as it will not shrink as much
as flimsy fabrics. Scrim is still popu-
lar, and among other white material
are dimity, dotted swiss, net, madras,
and various other weaves. Among
the nets colonial and fish are attrac-
tive. For heavy and simple curtains
figured materials may he had in cre-
tonnes, chintzes, linen, taffetas, Java
prints and Japanese cottons, making
a varied stock to choose from. For a
blue and white room Japanese cottons
are durable. India and Java prints
also hold their color. Figured cre-
tonnes and chintzes are attractive,
with plain or striped paper, but where
tlie walls are covered with figured pa-
per, plain denims, or linen taffetas are
best. China and raw silk also make
pretty curtains, especially yellow.
There are many valuable uses for
soda. Dampen soda and apply It. to a
bite or sting of an insect. Flowers
will keei> fresh longer if a pinch of
soda is put in the water. A weak so-
lution of soda will revive the color
in a dusty carpet. A large teaspoonful
of sal-soda will bleach a kettleful of
white clothes. Sal-soda is also good
for the sink if dissolved in boiling
water. When using old glass fruit
jars wash they with soda water and
rinse well in order to sweeten them.
A teaspoonful of soda added to the
water in which silver is washed will
help to brighten it.
Chopped pecan nuts, almonds and
pine nuts may be sprinkled over let-
tuce for a dinner salad.
One-fourth peck green pears, two
large oranges, three lemons, four
pounds sugar, two ounces green
ginger root, one-fourth cup water.
Peel, quarter, and core one-fourth peck
hard green pears, dropping same in
cold water as prepared in order to
prevent turning color. Drain and put
through food chopper. 'Cook till ten-
der in one-fourth cup water the grated
rind (the yellow only) of three
lemons. Scrape the gray coating frmi
two ounces green ginger root and cut
up tlie root in food chopper. Combine
all with four pounds granulated
sugar, the juice of two oranges and
three lemons, and cook for two and
one-half hours. This quantity will fill
12 jelly glasses.
Cream Cheese Combinations.
Other favorite combinations with
cream cheese are caraway, minced
olives, chives and pepper, or cream
cheese mixed with cream, molded in
small cups turned on a lettuce leaf
with a spoonful of Har-le-duc or goose-
berry jam, laid in a depression at the
top. Another nutritious and tasty
salad is made front two cupfuls cot-
tage cheese mixed with two dozen
chopped stuffed olives and moistened
with enough boiled dressing to permit
of its being molded. Make into halls
with butter paddles and serve on let-
TESTED BY TIME.
A Cure That Has Held Good for
Mrs. Mary Cru.*:lish of 1130 West
Third Street, Wilmington, Del., says:
"Some years ago I
began to feel weak
and miserable and
one day awoke from
a nap with a pierc-
ing pain in my hack
that made me
scream. For two
days I could not
move and after that
I had backache and
dizzy spells all the time. My ankles
swelled and I ran down dreadfully. I
was nervous and had awful headaches.
I wonder that any medicine could do
what Doan’s Kidney Pills have done
for me. They cured me four years
ago and X have been well ever since.”

"There is 50 per cent, of logic in
that law,” said a physician, “and if the
family property went to tho firstborn,
whether son or daughter, tho law

always the best—best in brain, in

Model for Rest of the Force.
While Oil City cannot, perhaps,
boast of being a strictly cold-water
town, she can, we believe, lay claim
to having among her residents the
champion temperance man of tho
state, if not of the entire country.
Not only has he never drank any kind
of spiritous or malt liquors, but he
has never allowed any tea, coffee, soup
or any kind of milk to pass his lips
since he was a child. He is a colored
man, was born in slavery, and because
Ills father frequently drank more
whisky than was good for him, he re-
solved when a boy to never drink any-
thing but water. And he has reli-
giously kept the resolution. Ho is a

"For some time I have been wanting
to tell you of the great good your
wonderful Sloan’s Liniment is doing
here," writes Mr. James F. Abernethy,
of Rutherford College, N. C "In fact,
all your remedies are doing noble
work, but your Liniment beats all In
my eight years’ experience with med-

A Household Necessity.
I would almost as soon think of run-

Coffee contains a poisonous drug—
caffeine—which injures the delicate

disease in one or more organs of the

CJW NOT BE RTLHBBED AWAY
It la perfectly natural to rub the spot that hurts, and when tlie imiscle9,
nerves, joints and bones are throbbing and twitching1 with the pains of
Rheumatism the sufferer is apt to turn to the liniment bottle, or some other
external application, in a:i effort to get relief from the disease, by producing
counter-irritation on the flesh. Such treatment will quiet the pain tempo-
rarily, but can have no direct curative effect on the real disease because it
does not reach the blood,'where the cause is located. Rheumatism is more
than skin deep—it is rooted nnd grounded in the hlood and can only ba
reached by constitutional treatment—IT CANNOT B13 RUBBED AWAY.|
Rheumatism is due to an excess of uric acid in the blood, brought about by
the accumulation in the system of refuse matter which the natural avenues
of bodily waste, the Bowels and Kidneys, have failed to carry off. This
refuse matter, coming in contact with the different acids of the body, forms
uric acid which is absorbed into the blood nnd distributed to all parts of tha
body, and Rheumatism gets possession of the system. The aches and pains
are only symptoms, and though they may be scattered or relieved for a tima
i by surface treatment, they will reappear at the first exposure to cold or
dampness, or after an attack of indigestion or other irregularity. Rheuma-'
tism can never be permanently cured while the circulation remains saturated
with irritating, pain-producing uric acid poison. The disease will shift
from muscle to muscle or joint to joint, settling on the nerves, causing
inflammation and swelling aud such terrible pains that the netyous system
is often shattered, the health undermined, nnd perhaps the patient become^
deformed and crippled for life. S. S. S. thoroughly cleanses the blood and
! renovates the circulation by neutralizing the acids and expelling all foreign
matter from the system It warms and invigorates the blood so that instead
of a weak, sour stream, constantly deposit*
ing acrid and corrosive matter in tlie mus-
cles, nerves, joints and bones, the body is fed
nnd nourished by rich, health-sustaining
blood which completely and permanently
cures Rheumatism. S. S. S. is composed
of both purifying and tonic properties—,
just wliat is needed in every case of Rheu-
matism. It contains no potash, alkali or other mineral ingredient, but ig
made entirely of purifying, healing extracts and juices of roots, herbs and
barks. If you are suffering from Rheumatism do not waste valuable tim®
trying to rub a blood disease away, but begin the use of S. S. S. and writ®
us about your case and our physicians Will give you any information or
advice desired free of charge and will send our special treatise on Rheumatism.
THE SWIFT SPECIFIC GO., ATLAMTA, GAm,
You should know, if you suffer from any of the
pains due to womanly trouble, that it is possible to be
relieved or cured by*tlie use of Cardui.
Fifty years, and over, of unexampled success,
in the treatment of female ailments, lias demonstra-
ted what Cardui can do, for others, since, in that
time, it lias benefited over a million v/ornen.
“Cardui lias cured me,” writes Mrs. Chas. Will-
iams, of Willow Shoals, Ivy., “and I praise it above
all other medicines. “Before I began to use it, I was
almost dead. .1 had suffered for five (5) years, with
female trouble, experienced death-
ly pains, every month. I had doctors
, from different places, but none of
|[j tlierm did me any good, and I ran down
to 97 pounds.
