WASHING THE HAIR.
H'hD( Women Should I>o to Keep It
In Good Condition All lite
Onoe a week in summer and once a
month in winter is, according to a -New
York hairdresser, often enough to
Wash the hair. "For frequent washings
Weaken it. The scalp should be care
fully dried afterward. The hair should
be. trimmed about once a month to pre
vent it from falling out. Occasionally
its condition becomes jxior, just as the
general system gets run down. It then
needs a good tonic and should have it;
but otherwise hairdressings are gener
ally to be avoided. Brush thoroughly
once a day at least, and do not braid
tightly at night. While care will do
much toward strengthening weak
growths of hair, it is, after all, a mat
ter of temperament. I have seen strong
end lusty young women with very poor
hair, and I have seen their opposites
with magnificent locks. I knew an
Irish woman 60 years old who had blue
blaek hair with a satiny luster that was
beautiful. It fell below her waist and
was so thick that it covered her like
e mantle when she let it down. I doubt
If she had ever brushed it; a hasty
combing through in the morning and
a twist, with a common back comb
stuck into hold it up, was all the dress
ing it ever got. It is such contradictory
conditions as these that make it hard
to treat hair successfully."

THE CHARMING ETHEL COLLAR.
A Very Simple But Daoidedly Effective Affair in Black Satin and
Gu pure Lace.
The Ethel collar, which, by the way, is named after Ethal Barrvmore, the young
American girl who was engaged to the son of Henry Irving consists of a broad band ot
black satin tied around the neck and finished with a large bow at the side. The satin bow
must be a "madp up" one and pinned upon the collar or the symmetry of the neelc will
be destroyed. Finish with hooks and eyes and pin or hook the bow on afterward.
Around three sides of the collar there stands a big ruffle of guipure lace. This is
continued at the sides in a fichu, which falls nearly to the belt. This fichu is made in
various ways, one of the simplest of which is upon a narrow backing of satin ribbon.
have been described as gentle, graceful,
beautiful and self-sacrificing. Not only
in those gentler virtues, but also in
some sterner aspects of life, the Japan
ese woman has shown time and again
what she is made of Anyone
who speaks against the purity of the
Japanese woman knows not whereof
lie talks, orisa vile slanderer who would
deprive the woman of what is most pre
cious to her. As the mistress of the
family she has as much real authority
in the family as her western sister. As
o mother she is paid great deference lu
ll e r children. In society a lady is
always treated with respect. There are
eome respects in which changes are de
sirable, but, on the whole, I have no
hesitation in saying the position of
woman in Japan is a very high one.
NEW SKIRT TRIMMINGS.

Skirt* to tlie lleKt I'oHSibie
Summer dress skirts will be trimmed,
there is no doubt about that. Many of
the skirts will be elaborately ruffled
from the hem to the belt as in past
seasons. One of the latest skirt revivals
is the pufF which is put on around the
hem. This puff is made of a bias band
of the goods which is gathered on both
edges and sewed around the skirt. If

be a dress that cannot wash the puff
is stiffened by crinoline or a delicate
inner lining, so that it keeps its shape
the whole season.
Lace will be used a great deal upon
these skirts and it will be put on in the
form of puffs anil ruffles. Puffs, it may
here be stated, will be the most fash

A ticket which labeled a very pretty
waist decoration in a New York show
room was marked: "This bodice, $4."
The bodice was sleeveless and had no
under arm pieces, yet it carried off the
name of "bodice" because it composed
almost a whole w:«ist.
It was made entirely of chiffon, plait

a large heavy bow of violet velvet ribbon,
which finished the waist. The same

The warble or swelling on the back of
cattle is caused by the larva of a fly
which attaches its eggs to the hair on
the legs, flanks and neck of the animal.
These hatch and the larvae establish
themselves under the skin, usually on
either side of the backbone. Here they
feed upon the animal juices until ready
to pupate, causing the swelling or war
ble. When growth is completed the
grub leaves the warble, drops to the
ground, crawls under the most con-

venient shelter, such as a piece of board,
log, etc, and here transforms into the
fly or adult stage. There is a difference
of opinion as to how the grub gets tin
der the skin. Some entomologists claim
that the egg is taken into tiie stomach
by the animals licking themselves,
hatch there, adhering to the walls, then
the grubs gradually work their way
toward the surface, where they remain
until fully grown. Others hold that the
eggs batch where they are laid and tho
young larvae buiy themselves at onca

under the skin. Whatever method is
employed the results are the same.
The best way to get rid of the pest is
to kill the maggot. This may be done
by squeezing them out. i'lace tho
thumbs near the base of t.he swelling
and press firmly until the grub is
forced out. To prevent the attacks of
the fly in summer, a mixture of four
ounces flowers of sulphur, one gill of
spirits of tar with a quart of train oil
rubbed along the spine, loins and ribs
is useful. Train oil can be used alone.
As the fly does not move about from
place to place freely, its eradica
tion on individual farms depends al
most completely upon tlie owner.—

lilii-d Fowls So Alllieii-d V\ ill
Crop bound is especially prevalent
among fowls in close confinement,
where in their desire to procure green
food they consume large quantities ol
dry grass, and 1 have observed its be
ing brought on in at least one case by
eating tea leaves, tiie whole mass form
ing a hard lump in the crop, thus being
Indigestible, causing the bird to dump,
and unless a remedy is speedily applied,
to die. In one of our exchanges a writer
gives tlie following remedy; First, pro
cure a piece of the smallest size rubber
tube about 18 inches in length (thisoan
be obtained at any drug store); attach
one end to a small tunnel, grease the
other with lard or vaseline for about
four inches, and are ready for business.
Get an assistant to securely hold the sick
bird, now carefully place tube in the
bird's mouth and push well down the
crop, about four inches of tube will be
required, hold the tunnel slightly above
the fowl's head and slowly pour in as
much luke-warm water as the crop will
hold, about one teacupful. Have the
assistant work the crop carefully dur
ing the process and until the hard mass
becomes softened. Great care should
be taken both in pouring water and
working crop lest the fowl become
choked by water rising in the throat
Next grasp the bird by the legs and hold
head down, gently working crop to as
sist bird to vomit. In most cases one
trial is enough to completely empty the
crop, but in case it is not, let the fowj
rest for half an hour and repeat the
process. This remedy has also been
used by me very successfully in eases
of acute indigestion. Keep the bird on
soft food with plenty of sharp grit and
charcoal for a few days and the cure is
Yorlino In fieewe and I)(ickN.
The most frequent difficulty with
ducks and geese is that of vertigo. They
drop down on their feet or fall over to
one side suddenly, at times as rapidly
recovering or dying immediately. This
happens only when ducks or geese are
fed on too much grain. The best sys
tem to adopt is to put them in a field
where short grass is abundant, or even
young weeds, and let them pet the food
for themselves. They require but very
little food after warm weather comes,
as they are then well over the laying
season, becoming nonproducers. If this
fact is kept in view—that of the non
producers requiring but little food dur
ing warm weather—there would be &
saving in expenses, as well as fewer
losses occurring from disease, but it is
difficult to convince those having good
breeds that there is such a thing as
killing with kindness l —feeding too
much. —Farm and Fireside.
Split Kara for Cattle.
Cattle of any age will eat split ears of
corn without soreness of the mouth,
which frequently results when fed on
whole ears, or on parts of ears which
have been broken crosswise of the cob.
Even calves of nine months will grow
fat upon them. This is a specially de
sirable way to prepare it to feed to
rnilcli cows. A steer of three years is
not fully provided with grinders, and
sven at that ape it is hard for him to
uiusticato whole ears.
HE LEARNED A LESSON.
<hf a Sharp Young Woman and Made
tlie Fm rt koiiH Lawyer Walk Home.
A spunky West Side young' woman
pave a budding attorney, who is some
times known as "Smart Alee'' Smith,
honiething to think about the other day.
And, as he was forced to walk down
town from far out West Madison street
way, he had plenty of time to ponder
the lesson, lie was waiting for a cable
ear and Hipping a half dollar in the air.
Hyr his side, also waiting for a car, stood
an elegantly-dressed, beautiful and, to
all appearances, honest and refined
young woman. Mr. Smith was not per
sonally acquainted with the elegantly
dressed, beautiful young woman, nor,
so far as known, was she with him.
Therefore, he kept flipping the half
tlollar in the air, regardless of her pres
ence, and catching it in his nimble
palm as it descended.
liy and by the expected car came
along and to a stop. As it stopped Law
yer Smith gave a last flip to the half
dollar before getting on board. As he
did so the beautifully dressed and beau
tiful young woman stepped forward,
preparatory to mounting the footboard.
Unfortunately she came within Mr.
Smith's sunlight, with the result that
his palm missed the descending half
dollar. The descending half dollar
rattled on the pavement and rolled un
3er the edge of the car. Then, whether
from pique or from sudden accession of
facetiousness, Mr. Smith did an un
nsual thing. Grabbing up the half dol
lar. he followed the elegantly dressed,
beautiful young woman into the car,
ind holding it out toward her, said:
"Excuse me, miss, was it you who
dropped this half dollar?"
The elegantly dressed, beautiful
young woman's face was suffused with
_ . ..... x take
it to you."
"Well, answered the young woman,
her blush growing deeper, "well, 1
don't know as it's my coin, but seeing
you are so polite about it, I guess 1 can
handle it in my business."
An 1 she gently transferred the 50-
:ent piece from Lawyer Smith's palm
"to her own.
The real joke of this story lies in the
fact that 50 cents was all the money
Lawyer Smith had with him. and that
he had to get off the car and walk to
his destination. —Chicago Chronicle.
Formation of Coal.
It will be remarked that the deposits
of anthrc cite are found in very moun
tainous regions. The difference be
tween this hard and what are called
the soft C' >als was explained to me by
the late Prof. William 15. Rogers. When
the contraction of the earth's surface
took place by which the mountain
regions of Pennsylvania and a few
other parts of the carboniferous series
were fortned, these mountains were
thro vn up. turned over and twisted in
such a manner as to cause the mate
rials of vegetable origin of which coal
is formed to become coked, or partly
coked, under extreme pressure. It is
due to that pressure and accompanying
heat that the anthracite coals are hard
and virtually free from bitumen; while,
under oth ir conditions, the bituminous
or semi-bituminous coals arc soft and
more friable, containing more bitumin
ous elements. In some other parts of
the earth's surface where coal is found
the so-called brown coals and lignites
have not been subjected to the measure
of heat under pressure sufficient to con
vert them into true coal. —Edward At
kinson, in Century.

A Nurse's Experience.
She'd rather have one than three.
There are thousands of people suffering |
from blood poisoning -who have almost j
beggared themselves in buying medicines i
from which they have obtained no help.
There art thousands of others who first or
last have tried Dr. Aver's Sarsaparilla and
found perfect healing. One of these i
others, Mrs. A. F. Taylor, of F.nglevale, I
N. Dak. relates the following experience: i
"About two years ago, T nursed a lady
who was suffering(ana finally died) from j
blood poisoning. I must have contracted
the disease from her ; for shortly after her '
death, I had four large sores or ulcers,
break out on my person. I doctored for a
long time, both by external application j
and with various blood medicines; but, in I
spite of all that I could do. the sores would j
not heal. They were obstinate, very pain- |
ful, annoying, and only getting -worse all j
the time. At last, I purchased six bottles 1
of Dr.Ayer's Sarsaparilla, thinking I would
give it a thorough trial. Before the first
bottle was taken, I noticed a decided im- j
provement in my general health ; my ap
petite was quickened, and I felt better
and stronger than I had for some time.
