Cutlcura Remedies, and I am so grate

what helped me will help others. My
body and face were covered with sores.
One day It would seem to be better,
and then break out again with the
most terrible pain and Itching. I
have been sick several times, but
never in my life did I experience such
awful suffering as with this eczema. I
had made up my mind that death was
near at hand, and I longed for that
time when I would be at rest. I had
tried many different doctors and med

Insisting that I try them. I began tat

Oldest Vehicle In America.
What Is claimed to be the oldest ve
hicle in America Is in possession of
the chamber of commerce, Los Ange
les, Cal. It vias made by the Pueblo
Indians of Tesuque, a village nine
miles from Santa Fe, New Mexico, and
was purchased In 1878 from a native
named Alfonso, who at that time was
65 years old. His statements and the
traditions of the village were to the
effect that the big, clumsy ox cart, or
carreeta, was handed down from fath
er to son for sufficient genarations to
place its origin in the seventeenth
century. The cart is composed of
wood and rawhide throughout, no
metal being used In Its construction.
The wheels are heavy sections of sy
camore, with clumsy, bow-like pieces
of rim secured opposite each other
on each wheel. The diameter of the
two ungainly wheels Is 98 inches. The
axle Is of hard wood and the 12-foot
tongue consists of a single length of
mesqulte. The body of the vehicle
la six feet long and very broad and
high In proportion. It is of rude,
rack-like construction. Popular Me

Samples of air at a height of nearly
nine miles have been recently ob
tained and examined for the presence
of rare gases. The collecting appar
atus, carried by a large balloon le a
series of vacuum tubes, each drawn
out to a fine point at one end. At
the desired height, an electro-magnetlo
device, connected with each tube and
operated by a barometer, breaks off
the point of the tube, admitting the
air. A few minutes later, a second
contact sends a current through a
plalnum wire around the broken end,
melting the glass and sealing the tube.
All the samples obtained show argon
and neon, but no helium was found in
air from above six miles. Philadel
A GOOD CHANGE
A Change of Food Works Wonder.
The wrong food and drink causes a
lot of trouble In this world. To

every person that Is 111, particularly
from stomach and nervous trouble.
As an illustration: A lady in Mo. has,
with her hnsband, been brought
round to health again by leaving off
coffee and some articles of food that
did not agree with them. They began
using Postum and Grape-Nuts food.
"For a number of years I suffered

Wife and Mother.
Corbett, in his well known book,
"Advice to Young Men," gave the fol
lowing advice on choosing a wife:
"There are comparatively few women
not replete with maternal love, and
by-the-bye, take you care if you meet
with a girl who 'Is not fond of chil
dren,' not to marry her by any
means. Some few there are who
even make a boast that they 'cannot
bear children,' that is, cannot endure
"I never knew a man that was
good for much who had a dislke to
little children; and I never knew a
woman of that taste who was good

the course of my life, and I have nev
er wished to see one of them a second
time." Home Notes.
Tho Tight Skirts.
It Is almost impossible to hold up
the long, tight-fitting skirts. One
must pull the tight part well above
the knees, and then, unless one has
the hem the same length all around,
an expose Is sure to be made.
And in walking one is obliged to
pull up the tight part above the
granulated sugar and one cup of mashed potato mixed with
three tablespoonfuls of melted butter. Stir half a level tea
spoonful of soda into three-fourths a cup of thick, sour.mllk;
add to the first njlxture with four cups of sifted flour, sifted
' again with one teaspoonful of salt, four level teaspoonfuls of
baking powder and half a teaspoonful of mace, and mix the
whole to a soft dough. More flour will be needed, from half
to a whole cup, but add no more than Is needed to shape the
cakes. Take the mixture onto the board, a little at a time,
pat into a sheet and cut into cakes; fry in deep fat, turning
often during the frying. These are a particularly good
doughnut. They will be soft, even if the dough be mixed
stiff enough to be handled easily. Boston Cooking School
knees, else stepping across a ditch is
Impossible. Clearly, the couturiers
did not intend that their trailing
skirts should be worn walking.
Although this mode for drawing in
closely just below the knees the
draperies both of mantles and of
gowns can scarcely be recommended
un the Bcore of grace, there is yet
something to be said in its favor as a
draught excluder, and the curious
way in which the full draperies of
soft sapphire blue velvet are drawn
down and held in place by two bands
of ermine, is very characteristic of the
mode of the moment. Philadelphia
Invitations For Tin Wedding.
In celebrating the fifth wedding an
niversary the tin emblem should pre
dominate throughout the arrange
ments. The invitations may be sent
on tin, and from then on the metal
should be conspicuous. All guests are
expected to send or bring a gift, but
it is not good form to present any
but the material typified. A piece of
glass at a tin wedding is not correct,
nor need one expect that the hostess
will wish a handsome remembrance.
The funnier the gifts the better, for
It is only with the progress of years,

are sent the services of a tinsmith

to fit note envelopes. The writing

this one are in demand at all reasons
of the year. They are charming made
from all lingerie materials and are at-
tractive made from messallnc, crepe

great many women use them for light
wools also. This one is adapted to
all the materials mentioned and to
the gown as well as to the odd blouse.
It Includes prettily tucked sleeves,
and it allows singularly effective use
of embroidery. The embroidered dai
sies are exceedingly simple, yet they
produce an effect of elaboration.

The waist is made with front and
backs and with tucked shoulder
straps that are novel and becoming.
The sleeves are cut In one piece and
the stock collar finishes the neck.
The quantity of material required
for the medium size is three and

Eight Gored Skirt.
Skirts that give long lines at front
and back are very generally becom
ing. This one Includes that feature,
and also the panel effect at the aides
that is so smart and so much liked.
It will be found adapted to all season
able materials. In the illustration it
is made from serge with simple tailor
stitching, but the style suits linen and
materials of the sort, which many
women make up in midwinter quite
as well as it does woolen ones. In
fact, the skirt is one of the smartest
and latest to have appeared and can
be made very generally useful.
The skirt is made in eight gores,
and those at the front and back are
extended to full length and overlaid
to give a box pleat effect. The side
panels are made in sections and are
lapped over the narrow centre gores
to form pleats, which provide becom
ing flare while at the same time per
fect slenderness over the hips is pre
served. The quantity of material required
for the medium size is seven and a
half yards twenty-seven, four and 4
quarter yards forty-four or flfty-two
inches wide, when material has figure
or nap; six and a half yards twenty
seven, four and a quarter yards forty
four or three and a half yards fifty-
two inches wide when material has
neither figure nor nap. The width of
the skirt at the lower edge Is three
and a half yards.
Drawing the Threads.
Linen threads are always drawn
more easily if the dressing is first
taken out. Make a heavy lather of
white soap and brush It over the sur
face where you wish to draw the
threads. Let this dry In, and the
threads will be much more easily re
moved. Coats Fuller.
