INFANTS IN SUMMER.
They He«|ulre Mure I'M re Then anil
Caimr More Worry Thitn at Any
Other Time of Year.
We are apt to think of summer as the
•ea&on of life and growth and of win
ter as the season of natural (le&tu and
the dearth of life. the opposite is
the case. Thft ro*c of mortality among
little children and in all human life
increases as the rays of the sun in
crease in intensity. The chill breezes
of winter and the cold mantle of snow,
which purify the air with frost, are
more kindly than the warm breezes of
tuinmer, laden as they are with the
germs of disease arising from decay
ing animal and vegetable matter.
Infant children require special care
In summer. The dangers to infancy
which arise from summer heat are more
than doubled when the little one is fed
artificially. It is clearly the mother's
duty, where the milk from her breast
is sufficient, to nurse her child. Exer
cise in abundant fresh air and good,
plain, but wholesome food, which will
keep the mother in health, will keep
the milk in good condition, under nor
mal circumstances, until the child is
nine or ten months old. At about this
time the milk, according to the best
authorities, usually begins to deteri
orate. Much, however, depends upon
circumstances. No mother stiould
wean a baby at the beginning of hot
weather, unless she is absolutely com
pelled to do oD. It is never wise to dis
turb ty.e digestion of a nursing baby
byt making any change in its food, or
by giving it any additional food to that
which it is accustomed to, in July, Au
gust, or even in September. If the
child is well, the early spring m<*nths
long before the hot weather comes is
• good time to make a change from
the food nature has provided to arti-
Ticjal food. Do not wean a child sud
denly. Accustom it gradually to being
fed with artificial food. Try a differ
ent preparation of milk if the first does
not agree with the little one. Xo one
food agrees with all babies. What
agrees with one baby will not neces
sarily agree with others. When the
proper food is obtained do not make
any changes until the child has teeth
enough to be fed more substantial food
than milk. Tt is better to begin at the
beginning and f< ed a child that is be
ing gradually weaned with a spoon. Do
not use a bottle unless it is positively
necessary.—X. V. Tribune.

One of the prettiest "nice" dresses
was worn at a children's carnival at
Narragansett the other day. The little

was made with a round skirt,full blouse

The yoke of this dress was of pale

from the dress.
The skirt of the dress and the yoke
had h broad plaiting of ribbon in yel

The ribbon was made in double box

It is surprising what a number of use

that we generally discard and regard
as altogether useless. Many are the
things that are thus thrown aside, and

account articles which are usually the
prey of the junkman.
In every house there are bound to be
several old shoes lying about in corners
and cupboards, and these, by a pair of
clever hands, can be metamorphosed
into something that serves at the same
time for use and ornament. A lady's
workcase made out of an old shoe sounds
rather funny, but anyone following the
directions here given for making such
a case will be astonished and delighted
at the result.

Caootl l.ookH mill Health.
The secret of beauty is health. Those
who desire to be beautiful should do all
they can to restore their health if they
hitve lost it, or keep it if they have it
still. It is impossible for anyone to lay
down specific rules for other people in
these matters. The work which one may
do, the rest, exercise, baths, are matters
for individual consideration, but none
the less they must all be carefully
thought of and never neglected. As a
rule, when a person feels well, he looks
well; when he feels ill, he looks ill. There
are times when one can guess without
looking in the glass that the eyes are
dull and the skin is mottled. This is
not a case for any external application,
for, to have a fresh complexion and
bright eyes, even to have white hands
and a graceful figure, you must be well.
Health and the happiness which comes
from it are the true secrets of beauty.—
N. Y. Ledger.
Keep a l.onu Neck Covered,

With a short, full throat may have her
gown cut a little low and finished with
a frill, if that style is suited to the

effect, will not make her look thick
throated.—N. V. Ledger.

FARM HOUSE PIAZZA.
One l.!k«* 'Mii«t Shown in tli<» Cut ( on
lit* ilullt at nn Kxpenne Every
one t an Afford.
Many houses have no shade tree*
rear them, and a piazza or veranda is
tlmost a necessity in the summer. A
permanent porch, deep enough to
fori i the necessary shade in summer,
is objectionable in the winter, as it
shuts out the light that is then needed.
Besides all this, the expense in build
ing a permanent veranda is beyond
the reach ol many, and altogether un
necessary in any case. The illustra
tion shows how to make a summer
veranda that has all the advantages
of the expensive permanent piazza and
avoids the disadvantages in the win
ter. The expense is so small that
everyone can afford it.
Build a platform or floor of length
and width desired, with or without
tailing. Over this at the proper height
construct o light frame to be cov
ered with striped awning goods. The
frame should be of same length and
width as floor or platform, or larger.
In many cases the awning and plat
form should cover the whole front or
tide of the building. The frame should
be attached to trie building by screws,
so that it can be taken down in win
ter. Or it can be attached with hinges
and made to elevate and drop, same
as awnings over windows. The frame
is made of iight strips of wood, and can
be braced from side to side with small
wires secured to the house by small
screw eyelets. The awning should be
carefully taken down in the full and
put away for the winter. It must be
properly fastened to the frame by
small, large-headed tricks to prevent
it from tearing in the wind.—Ohio
SEEDING IN THE FALL.

Work IK Completed.
If grass or clover is to be sown in the
fell it is very essential to prepare the
ground in a good condition in good sea
«on in order that Ihe seeding maybe
done early. Usually unless the seeding
can be done sufficiently early so that
the plants can secure a thrifty, vigor
ous start to grow and get reasonably
well established before cold weather
sets in it is rather poor economy to
sow the seed. One of Ihe worst diffi
culties or objections to fall seeding is
the lack of moisture in the soil. With
all seed a certain amount of moisture
is essentia] to the securing of a good
germination and a vigorous start to
grow, and it is always an item to sow
the seed under as favorable conditions
One advantage in plowing the
ground reasonably early, taking pains
to plow deep and thorough and then
making the surface a good tilth, is that
the line soil on the surface acts as a
mulch and adds materially in retain
ing moisture in tlie scil. And with
grass and clover it is often possible to
secure a good germination and a good,

pared in a good tilth early, when, if
left until the ground gets dry, there
will not be sufficient moisture to in

they will be better able to stand the

Jamie has a biz sister —a blooming, bound

Jaime's school used to call on her. He came
one evening, just before the close of the hist

ways was afraid of catching cold. He left
these shoe protectors in the liall. Jamie, by
