ed for many different puqiosos. It will
redeem an ordinary material without
making it absurd by elaborate work. It
is particularly a pretty linish for conntry
couch or hammock pillows made of tat
een and even for a finishing border to
children's frocks and aprous.
In either silk of some spotted design
or in muslin over silk or sateen this work
is appropriate for nightdress sachets.
Some are made in the shape of the
"crackers" with which nil party poin
children are familiar. Each end may bo
gathered in with a ribbon or finished by
a rosette, and the nightdress goes in
through a slit down the middle. The case
is of course stuffed with wool or wad
ding. Small teacloths can bo similarly
made, and so may inexpensive little cov

owndiscretiou in adding elaborate linings
or full frills of lace.
Several attractive designs of this daisy
work are furnished iu The Housewife,
which gives the following directions and
explanations: Never pull the thread;
never let the muslin pucker; never carry
the silk from one spot to auother. Use
only washing silksor fast colored cotton,
for whatever is worth doing is worth
doing well. Spending one's time on fan
cy work that will not last is not doing
In the first design the spots on the
muslin are treated exactly like daisies,
the pattern being so simple that it needs
no explanation. The second pattern is
specially designed for curtains or toilet
irticles. The original was done in red
Directions For Making This I'opulur Trlm
iiilp For Dress Bodices and Skirts.
The pi ?sent fancy for trimming skirts
and bodices with milliner's folds is a
pretty one and quite effective, but it is
not an easy matter to make them neatly
unless one has had considerable experi
ence in this sort of work. These helpful
directions from The Household will
therefore prove welcome:
Cutting the material is an important
part of the process. The strips must be
nit exactly on the bias, 01 the fold will

wrinkle. To do this it is better to pin
one edge of the bias material along the
Straight edge of the cutting board. The
points of the pins can be easily stuck
into the wood sufficiently to hold it firm
ly. Then measure the width you intend
to cut the strips at either end of the
board, and stick another pin into the
wood at these points. Then, with a yard
stick, chalk a line with French chalk
from one pin to the other. Take tlh pins
from the material and cut the strip at
the chalk Line, repeating the process of
pinning the material to the board for the
For a fold of ordinary size, which is
five-eighths of an inch wide when finish
ed, the strips should be cut an inch and
a half wide. Fold one edge over a little
less than half an inch on the wrong side,
as at b, Fig. 1; baste it with accuracy,
then fold over the outer edge. ig. 8, at
a. so that the edge will not quite meet
the edge of b. There should be about an
eighth of an inch space between them.
Baste this carefully.
Fold b over onto a. Slip a thin, narrow
whalebone through a, bend it slightly
over the forefinger, and blindstitch b to
a, running the sewing as tiear as possible
to the outer edge of the whalelnme with
out running it off. Slide the whalebone
along as the work progresses.
The whalebone will prevent the needle
from going through to the other side of
the fold, thus spoiling the symmetry of
the work, and it is not necessary to use
the care which is needed when there is no

Colors and Dinners.
It cannot be too strongly emphasized
that "pink dinners," "yellow dinners,"
"violet luncheons" and the like are not
"good style," although they are contin
ually recommended to the public by
writers on decoration. Yellow satin rib
bon and yellow tissue paper flowers can
never take the place with people "who
know" of the spotless napery. brilliantly
polished silver and immaculate crystal
of a well kept table.

middle. The stitch for the rrr.ss is picot
stitch. Every spot has also a yellow
The French knot is made, as almost
every one knows, by twisting tho thread
around the needle ono or more times and
then replacing the needle in almost the
same spot. This gives a delicate little
point of color very effective in many in
stances. Caring For a Cold.
Pnenmonia, pleurisy and consumption
are partners of carelessness in tho dress
ing of the chest and back, ami tho colds,
which might stop at the throat by a lit
tle prudence, are their apprentices. To
get relief from a cold, in the first place
avoid too much medication. A properly
clad skin and a clear digestion ought to
shorten the life of a cold. If a little
comfort nan bo secured by wearing a
light covering on the bond during indoor
hoars, it should Iks respected. Ventila
tion of apartments comes in for a Might
amount of attention, and it should be
sufficient to furnish fresh air and not to
Nothing is more fallacious than tho
belief that health Is promoted and life
prolonged by ait in excess. There are a
few good remedies which appeal to us as
matters of tradition. Our grandparents
used them with effect, and we might fid
low their example without injury. One
of these is sassafras tea. Another is
boneset tea, and another is senna b.

A housekeeper, iu the Albany Culti

thread of the cloth bo used. Under the

stitches back and forth over its edges,
running them an inch beyond the edges
of tho cut. Cross again with "one thread

The following recipe is for a coffee
