daily. The day is begun with a delicate
breakfast ot rolls and coffee. About
two hours later a so-called second
breakfast Is served, consisting of rolls
and meat, generally some kind ot sau
sage, with beer, wine or coffee, as one
chooses. The most substantial repnst
is served about one o'clock. The menu
is what one would naturally expect for
dinner anywhere, bread and butter,
however, being conspicuous only by
their absence. In the middle ot tho
afternoon, we always had coffee and
cake, and finally at eight o'clock we sat
down to supper. There was a decided
novelty about such a state of 'affairs,
which was rather more pleasing than
otherwise, especially during those two
or three days when I had nothing of
greater importance to attend to. But
how I was to do Justice to the culinary
department of that well regulated
household, and devote, at the same
time, a proper amount of each day to
the Improvement of my mind, troubled
me. To this hour, I cannot explain how
it was done, but by some mysterious
process, things seemed to suit them

as we left the table, the older members
of the family all murmured a pleasant
"Mahlseit," thereby seeming to imply a
hope that the occasion had been an en
joyable one. The younger children all
came around to me and formally shook
hands, as they uttered the magic word.
At first I concluded this to be merely a
family custom to teach the children to
show deference to their elders and
superiors but my first dinner party, a
month after my arrival, speedily dis

And now for the much worn subject,
"Cleanliness." so frequently slighted
by people who would be Incensed if
told they were not perfectly clean. av

item in personal hygiene. It Is not only
a covering to the body, but has Its own
work to do throwing off effete matter.
The scalp Is often neglected because "it
takes too long to dry tne nair." une

would not let dirt accumulate about
your plants nor the earth become caked
with their roots. Your nair is a plant
and crows like a tree. Give It the same
amount of care. Wash It, trim it and
nourish It sometimes. Borne say they
are "always scrubbing while they wash
their face a dozen times a day, but
they "never use soap," have been told
It was "bad for the skin."
This Is a mistaken impression. Pure
soap will never hurt, on the other hand
It Is absolutely necessary to remove the
greasy waste matter given out at every
pore. The skin of the face does not dif
fer In any essential particular from that
of tho body and there Is no reason why
It should not be as thoroughly cleansed.
It is quite probable that certain rashes
which are limited to the face are the
result of this very neglect and the
consequent accumulation of material
which ought to be removed.
Then for the face use hot water into
which you may put a little borax or a
few drops of ammonia. Use plenty of
good, pure soap. Dry with a soft linen
cloth rubbing from the nose out and
from the chin up. Moisten the fingers
with palm oil and while the pores are
yet ooen, rub In a gentle rotory mo
tion so as to work out the blackheads.
Never pinch or squeeze them for it

Cleanse again with hot water and soap,
then dash the face with or plunge it Into
cold water. Dry It perfectly. A little
rose water or any good toilet water may
then be applied. Sometimes lemon Juice
Palm oil is softening to the skin and
will answer when good face cream is

expensive. Avoid face powder, common
cornstarch Is safer than a face powder
of which you know nothing. If any
thing Is used to overcome a "too shin
ing countenance" do not forget to re
move it on retiring. The face should in
any case receive this treatment each
night. Indeed a warm bath of the en
tire body gives us a feeling of comfort
which must induce sleep. We must
have rest and we must have exercise,
outdoors In the sunlight or In the rain.
Who, when properly equipped, does
not enjoy a fine rain. Rainwater is ex
cellent for the face. Look at our Eng

Y. W. C. A. LUNCH ROOM.
A' most Prominent feature of the
Toung Women's Christian Association
work, is the Lunch Room, where girls
may spend a pleasant and profitable
hour each day. It was established in
and has steadily advanced in use
fulness until the present time when
nearly 100 girls are taking dally ad
vantage oi tne accommodations offered.
When first established, the Lunch Room
was intended as a Place where shoo and
office girls might eat their lunch, but
xne ever tnougntrui management soon
ascertained that it would be an espe
cial accommodation to many girls to
serve warm dinners and a light lunch.
Progress has continually marked the
enterprise until the present time, when
a most substantial meal may be had,
and at a reasonable price. Although
successful, beyond the fondest hopes of
its projectors it Is just possible that
many girls of the city are not aware
ot the existence of so pleasant a place
so advantageously located as the Toung
Woman's Christian Association Lunch
Room, and It is for the benefit of these
tnat tnis article is intended.
The Lunch Room Is Intended for all
classes and creeds and after lunch,
girls may take advantage of the read
ing room and also enjoy themselves in
social intercourse. While It Is not de
nied that a religious air Dervadea the
atmosphere In the vicinity of the Toung
woman's unrutian Association Lunch
Room, whatever one's belief Is she will
find nothing to offend her. The man

echo of birds' singing, and tho hum of

sweet rragrance and the table seemed
ever laden with the best of things to

Surely there Is no class of workers who

also the welfare, when you consider it

The truth is, there Is wrong concep

when it should take position among the
legitimate business enterprises, for
housekeeping is a business, and a serf
otis one too, requiring not only capital,
but brains, judgment and unwearying
care to the successful, and it cannot be
a one-sided affair.
Remember It has a far wider scope

driving your husband out of this room.
Let him. If he so denlres, sit by the

Do not lay too much stress upon having
things spick and span. Did you ever
notice how good things taste, when
they are cooked by one who likes the
work and is happy in It, for it Is not
what Is cooked, but how. So I aver, that
a good cook Is as essential to mankind
as a poet, statesman or philosopher.
It is also a theory of mine that no
people are quite so happy as those who
have just enough good, honest work on
hand, kitchen or elsewhere, to keep
them out of mischief.
