One clear, cold winter's day Benja-
min Franklin spread a number of
handkerchiefs can-fully on a level
stretch of snow. One of the baudlcer-
chiefs was black, another white and
the others of various colors. Some
time afterward he returned and re-
moved the bnnkerchlefs carefully one
by one. measuring the depth of snow
under each. Under the black handker-
chief ho found that the snow had mclt-
ed considerably; under a red linndker-
chief, almost as much; under a blue

almost as well as an oilskin sheds
water; blue is nearly as beat proof;

red a still warmer color, while black
soaks up almost all the sun's heat that

time and you will see why black
clothes are out of place lu the summer
time and white ducks in winter.

I Cheeky John Forster.
In "William Harrison Alnsworth and
His Friends" the author. S. M. Ellis,
tells a quaint story of Alnsworth and
ibis friend John Forster. Alnsworth
bad discovered a tine set of Hogarth's
engravings which was held at 5, a
sum which, he said. "I could not just
then spare or at least did not think I
ought to spare. I took John Forster
down to see the Hogartbs, whereupon
he actually said that he would and
must have them himself nnd as be had
not 5 of loose money at that moment
I should lend that sum to him. 1
myself nul could not afford to lay out
the money; bow. rhen, could I lend lt-
to him? It was of no use. ne over
ruled me. had the 5 of me nnd bought
the Hognrths I was longing for."
The Moves In Chess.
In the number of possible moves
chess stands nlono among games, and
not only Is It perfectly safo to say thai
no living man has ever made even
once every possible move, but It Is
highly Improbable that in all the cen
turies of the history of the game lias
every possible move been made. The
different wnys of playing the first four
moves on each side aro so numerous
that If every man, woman nnd child
In a city of half a million population
were to set to work playing them at
the rate of four moves a minute night
and day It would be more than a year
before any one would bo able to leave
the chessboard.

The Yankee Twist.
"You can always tell an English

Temporary Freckles.
There are two kinds of freckles, tho
t summer visitors and the permanent
residents. The former can sometimes
be removed by the application of any
one of many mild lotions.
, Crushed strawberries are reconi
mended. Finely powdered cinnanio;i
mixed with four times Its bulk of
honey nnd applied night and niorniiu
has done good. Pea broth Intent"! :
has boon credited with hclpfulne-s.
Some country maidens swear Jjy the
distilled water of wild tansy locally
used. Distilled elder flower water is an
old time preventive nnd remedy. I.ej
on juice Is found by some to suffice.
Peroxide of hydrogen has Its support
ers. Our great grandmothers used to
prepare in the still room, from garden
and wayside flowers, waters credited
with giving and preserving the pink
and white delicacy of skin they so
greatly admired.
Permanent freckles will not yield to
any such mild measures. Undoubtedly
they can be lightened by any of the
things that banish summer freckles,
but they do not disappear.
Dry Lips. '
Lips dry and constantly chapped
are apt to Indicate a poor condition of
the blood, so that a person who has
this symptom would do well to consult
a physician ns to her general health.
But, whether or not this is necessary,
external preparations applied locally
will relieve any Irritation and some
times effect a cure. When chapping
takes the form of deep cracks, almost
like cuts, gum benzoin Is the best ap
plication that can be made. Grease for
that purpose is not desirable, as the
skin must be drawn together and dried
in order that It may heal. This is the
action of gum benzoin. A bit should
be carried in one's purse or bag. ap
plying It when needed. Care should
be taken that the gum Is kept antl
eeptieall.v clean.
Cheap Complexion Cream.
An inexpensive complexion cream
for whitening and softening the skin
may be made as follows: Take a small
bottle of white vaseline, two and one
half ounces: simple tincture of ben
zoin, ten drops; powdered borax, one
quarter ounce: oil of sweet almonds,
one-half ounce; melted wax, one tea
spoonful. Melt the vaseline, add drop
by drop the benzoin, then the borax
and oil of sweet almonds. Boat with
an egg whisk until cool, add a few
drops of any perfume desired and
place in pomade pots.
Harmless Powders.
A really good powder for persons
suffering from a constantly greasy
complexion is not only harmless, but
is an absolute necessity. Powder, how
ever, must bo applied with judgment
nnd care and should only bo lightly
dusted on and never rubbed In.
Try mixing three ounces of wheat
starch with one ounce of powdered
orris root, adding a drop or two of oil
of berganiot to scent it. The powder
must be repeatedly sifted through u
very tine sieve.
Cleaning White Hair.
White hair should bo treated very
carefully, as It is always brittle and
breaks easily. The whites of two or
three eggs well beaten with one ounce
of cold water to each egg makes a
very tine shampoo for white hair. Itub
It well into the scnlp and hair, rinse
with tepid water and a very little blu
lug in the last rinse water will make
yellow while hair a prettier color. Use
no beat in drying and never curl with
hot Irons.
Emotion Cuts Wrinkles.
Strong emotions, either of Joy or
grief, leave their traces on the face.
Anger and tears soon trace deep fur
rows on the brows nnd leave the eye
sunken and dull. Try to look on the
bright side and hope for better things.
Massage will Improve your looks, pro
vided you do not undo all the good
work with daily tears. Work aud out
door exercise will be of the greatest
benefit. Try them.
Softening the Knuckles.
Knuckles which have been exposed
to dirt aud grime aro most unsightly.
Soap and water aro not sufficient to
clean them. First apply a Httlo olive
oil or a cleaning cream, rubbing well
Into the skin. Remove moisture and
scrub knuckles, using a brush, warm
wntor and soap.
Good Eye Lotion.
An excellent lotion for weak eyes is
the following:
Camphor water, fifteen drops; boric
acid (powdered) one-quarter ounce;
boiling water, one-half pint.
Mix, btraln and leave to cool. Then
apply to tho eyes several times a day
with nn yecup.
Crescents on the Nails.
Tho half moon or crescents at the
base of the nails can generally bo de
veloped by first soaking the fingers
in warm soapy water, then gently
pressing back tho cuticle that grows
over them. If this is very long it can
be carefully cut with fine curved scls-
More Elaborate Designs Popular For
Indoor and Outdoor Wear.
Tlie makers of fashions arc some
times considerate of our feelings and
our purses, and It Is kind of them not
to banish blouses from the pale of
stylish dress. For a general rule, it is
more satisfactory to have the blouse
match the color of the skirt material,
but both nil black and nil white blouses
are worn with colored costumes.
Nothing fortunately for most of us
can dim the glory of tho white silk
blouse for morning wear. For less
substantial bodices there are Bom
lovely schemes in veiled effects. Pale
gray ninon which veils pink is much in
favor, and the tissues of gold, copper
or silver glimmering underneath a
modest shade of uioussellno are partic
ularly fascinating and suggestive of the
lure of the orient. Appearing in the
same way Is a band of metallic gauze
running round the upper arm of the
sleeve, which In its entirety Is veiled
itli a dark blue chiffon.
Plain silk Is going to be made Into
separate blouses, and several pretty
results are obtained by a mixture of
Talsley and plain silk,

Have you a kick coming ?
Is there anything that displeases you ?
Are you unhappy and need cheering up ?
Has any little thing gone wrong ?
Tell us your troubles. Let us help you ?
For each of the three best kicks each week, The Citizen
will give a brand new crisp one dollar bill. Don't kick too
lone;. 50 words to a kick. No limit, however, to the num
ber of your kicks. You don't have to be a subscriber to be a
Open to everyone alike, men, women and children, subscribers and non-subscribers.
Old and young, rich and poor. Remember two cents a word for the
three best kicks.
There must be something you don't like.
Kick about it. What good is an editor any
way except to fix up the kicks of his read
ers? Relieve your mind and get a prize!
A few suggested subjects at which to kick! Tho weather, of course.
Tight fitting shoes. The high cost of living. The hobble skirt and the
Harem trousers. High hats on week days. Suffraglsm, etc., etc., etc. The
tunnler tho better.
Several people have asked us if the fifty-word letters containing kicks
have to be signed. How olso will we know to whom to award tho prizes?
Whether in the event of the letter winning a prize and being published,
the name of the kicker would appear is another question. Undoubtedly
the writer's wishes would bo followed on that score. Our idea of the
"Kick Kontpst" Includes everything except direct and offensive personali
ties. Sit right down now and dash off fifty words about anything you don't
like and want to register a kick against. It won't take you five minutes
and you may win a prize. The more, original the subject tho better chance
for a prize. One dollar for less than flvo minutes work is pretty good par.
Of course you can make your kick as short as you wish. A clever fifteen
word kick may win a prize over a full-length fifty-word one. The shorter
tho better.
For the best kick of ten words or less The Citizen will pay an additional
prize of one dollar. Now then, lace up your shoes and let drive!
