sheltering him and the gay fans at his

cents, the fans 1 cent apiece aud cents

Brownie dolls, made of thick water
color paper, painted t. represent the dif

may be easily made, and a long narrow
strip of paper pasted on the back at the
shoulder? will serve to make them stand.

then made in it as indicated in the dia

white, pink anil white, etc.
The tulips are then filled either with
peppermints, timdrops, molasses drops,
or some simple candies. When placed
at each plate, filled and tied with their
bright ribbons, they are exceedingly dec
orative, and the children beam with de
hght over tulip and contents.
How to Tie Slioeitrin!4.
"Stop a rainnte. My shoestring is un
tied." "Oh, dear! What a nuisance!
Your shoes are alway3 untying, and
there's onr car coming.'" Result, fuss
and bad temper. Though a shoestring
is a very ;isy thing to tie, not one person
in a hundred knows how to do it. We
all know how to tie a bow and of what
a bow consists two loops and a knot in
the middle. Now, suppose Wore you
tighten your bow, and while yon stili
have a lo -p in eacii hand, yon take the
loop in yonr right hand and it
through 'he knot in the middle. Kow
go your USUal way and give both loops a
good hard tug to tighten them, arid th ra
yon are! No more untied shoestrings.
No more lost cars. When you want to
unfasten it, take one of the tag ends in
your hand, give a (food poll, and tho
thing is done, or rather undone, writes
one of Good Housekeeping's correspond,

A Japan' so novelty that made its bow
to the guests of n recent Japancwi tea is
so clever yet so inexpensive a getup that
it deserves to receive special recognition.
It is suited as a favor for children's pr
tics as well as the teas of grownup peo-

writes as follows iu The Housewife: As

Take the tiny button of a nose between

you may hurt the delicate, barely set

much, and so make the nose thick at the

mark where they ought to bet to insure a
delicate arch and a finely penciled point
instead of a wide spreading straight line.
These two should be done without fail

yourself, do not attempt it, as one false
slip may seriously injure the child, in

As to the hair itself, a great deal can
be done to prevent a child having lank,
heavy hair. From the time the tirst few
hairs begin to appear on baby's head, di
rectly it ha been bathed, and while its
hair is wet. brush it up the wrong way.
It may not look so trim and tidy BS when
brushed smoothly down, but it is worth
a good deal to insure curly hair, and tho
treatment will do much in most cases.
When first the hair begins to grow in
r al earnest, do not let it get long and
straggly. Have it cut frequently, though
only just a shaving need bo taken off
each time.
1 have purposely left the most impor
tant rule to the last. If you want pretty
children, keep them happy. I do not
mean spoil them, but try to understand
their characters, to make them obey by
the rule of love, and above all don't
keep on scolding them. Peevishness,
which, by causing the corners of a child's
mouth to droop, would spoil a baby
Venus, is generally the result of ill
health. Treat it as such. One filial word:
If your children grow tip good looking,
do not allow your friends to tell them so,
for vanity and self consciousness neu
tralize the charms of childhood as of
Sonic New Trimming.
A long range of new trimmings have
fringes formed of bunches of spearheads
of jet clustered together, and some of
the drops are shaped like fans, larger
than spearheads. Tassels of these play
an all important part, and deep fringes
are nsed. The trimmings, which follow
the idea of the circular cuttings, are
sometimes crocheted with cord and jet.
Moire ribbons and galonsare a domi
nant Ides, these being often worked in
designs with sequins or smaller pail
lettes. Some of ..." wide makes of such
ribbons have fringes falling from the
edge. An extremely pretty novelty is a
light make of lace worked all over with
jet, plaited with a narrow jet galon
down the center, ready for trimming
capes and mnntles. Occasionally leaves
of jet are laid on the plaits of lace. Some
time there is only one row with a jet
heading, bnt often the lace is joined
down the center and covered with jet,
the ornamental bor h r of the lace show
inor at each '!.". Tie n. again, this class
of trimming is diversified with deep
fringes and deep Vandykes of jet.
A Calqne Penwiper.
A clever notion for tli' small boy or
girl to work out is the wishbone pen
wiper. It is a simple little affair, but
ranks forem r am mg novelty trifles for
the writing desk. Golden Days gives an
illustrated description of how to make it.
pie. The hostess of the tea alluded to
along with other very chic notions in ta
blo decorations originated this cunning
souvenir, one of which was placed St the
plate of each guest. Just how it is fasli
ioned was recently told in Golden Days.
Begin with two gayly decorated Jap
anese napkins. Lay them down onu
abovo the other and fill in the center of
tho paper with cotton batting which has
been generously sprinkled with white
iris, sandalwood or Hweet orchid sachet.
Stand upright upon the cotton a baby
Jap and then gather up the edges of the
napkins nnd securo them just below the
Jap's waist with a bit of belie ribbon.
You will find that tho batting lias given

this splendid success possible.
We have sustained the enormous expense and performed the vast labor neves
sary in order to bring within reach what we consider to be the best Reference Li
brary in print, and the universal praise and congratulations which have poured in
upon us, from rich and poor alike, more than repays our every effort
Judging by the crowds that are thronging in The Tribune Encyclopedia De
partment, all day and until late in the night, it is evident the people realize that a
great opportunity is last slipping away, and in a lew short hours will be forever gone.
In order to accommodate every friend possible we will keep the Encyclopedia

more orders will be accepted after 12 o'clock toaiglit.

Our Final Proposition
On receipt of $4.50 we will forward the complete set of : 5 volumes, the balance to
be paid $5 per month. Or, on receipt of $3, we will staid 12 volumes, to be paid $3,
per month. The last hall will be sent as soon as the first halt is paid for. Mail orders
will receive the same attention as if given in person, AH orders mailed on the last day
