What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

In a lecture the other day Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, the well known author. who is professor of English literature at Cambridge, said that certain writers, lika the Hindu Bab% were always trying to make \our poor dear lan- guage more floriferous, more poetical.\ Rebus are notorious, of course, for their passion for using flowery Eng- lish, and they seise eagerly on shy phrase, whether poetical or slangy, that may happen to catch their fancy. Sir Arthur gave as an example a story of a Babu who wanted to send a tele- gram announcing the death of his mother. A plain statement of the fact of death did not satisfy hie/, so he wired, \The hand that rocked the cra- dle has kicked the bucket!\ Shielding Shields. Senator John K.

Three years before the end of his first term as a justice of the supreme court at a political convention a farmer dele- gate tried to get a resolution adopted by the convention indorsing Shields for re-election. 'What's the htttry?' asked another delegate. \His term doesn't etniro for tlyee years yet.\ \I know that\ the farmer delegate replied, \but we'd better get this thing sewed up.

Points About the Woman Who Wears Expensive Clothes, but NOrser Looks Well Dressed—Vagaries of a Regular Customer. Dear Elsa—The best place to see economy working overtime I have re- cently discovered is in the hothe of people blessed with a large share of this .world's goods. They are, 0as a rule, more economical in the little things than those less endowed with wealth. • Last week I spent with the P.'s,, and you remember, dear, moth- er telling us years ago how \saving\ the older members of this family with gold galore used to be. Well, their descendents have inherited the same tendencies'. The frugal mind is still apparent in the clan of tclday. How do I know? A fine object lesson was given by the daughter of the house. One day during my - stay Jack, Anne A.'s brother, found that he had quite outgrown his mackintosh. The coat was one of fine quality (they are too sensible and economical to buy any- thing but the best), but it was almost worn out—indeed, decidedly shabby in places. I myself should have thrown it away without a thought as being too far gone to do anything with. and I laughed heartily when Anne pounced upon the • °discarded garment Iike a hawk. \Why Anne,\I said, \what on earth can you ever do with such a gone to pieces old mackintosh?\ \Well she replied, \I was going to do something for myself with it, but since you are so skeptical about its usefulness I'm going to make some things for you out of. it. There arc lots of places that are quite good In . It yet,\ she said, holding the old rag up admiringly for me to see. \Why. the entire back is almost as good as new.\ I laughed again, but in spite of ne• discouraging rudeness Anne went ts work and made for me --the skeptic -- a wonderful bath apron to wear when I wash Comfy, our new Pomeranian' dog, and a toilet bag with pockets in it for my suit ease (It holds, each in its own compartment, toothbrush, comb. soap, wash cloths and other similar ar- ticles). You see, dear, I had bragged a little to Anne before the mackintosh episode of what I had accomplishel in the sav- ing line. Since then I will have to look to my own laurels for efficiency In hougehold economy. Dick says the P.'s have the laugh on me and attrib- utes their happy financial condition to generations of economical forbears. Mine were notorious spendthrifts, and there are times when I thank heav- en for it. I can plunge and then put the blame upon \Inherited tendencies.\ And, apropos of plunging, one does have to accelerate one's sartorial gait this season to be well dressed, for the chic thing is so expensively simple looking. But don't you think there are a lot of women, no matter how much they spend on clothes, who never acquire a well dressed look? It takes more than fine clothes and good groom- ing to give a woman this appearance. This look, I think, is more of the spirit than of materials. Fier instance, there's Dorothy D. She always wears her clothes, no matter how elaborate, with an ease that makes them a part of herself. She shines from them. They do not shine from her, as is the case of the dressed up woman. The dressed up woman always gives one the Im - pression of a countrified person out in her beet. There's a shopgirl I see downtown at a ribbon counter who has the well dressed look to perfection, yet her clothes are simplicity themselves, dif- fering but little in style from those of the other girls at this counter. They appear conscious of their spotless shirt waists, trim belts and well done coiffures. She seems perfectly Un- conscious of her grooming. She does not stroke her belt or push It into better fit about her waist every few minutes, or smooth her hair, or fuss with her rings. Everything about her shows pretty taste and care and no present concern with it. Speaking of shops reminds me or an experience I had recently in a very exclusive decorating establish meet. While I was looking over a pile of cretonnes a smart woman, evidently a well known customer, came burriedlY Into the shop and asked the salesgirl If she had one of those slipper trees that are made with a metal tip on one end of a steel spring and a wooden knob on the other. An answer in the aMrmative being given, the customer ordered -just one of the slipper treks to be painted white and prettily Mee - rated and a *bite powder purr \fas- tened to the toe of' it, \so when it Met\ she explained. 'on my dressing a It will look '‘filmost like a slipper a white pompon on it.\ ' The girl's training was equal t*the strain put upon it, and she took the order without questioning Its st range - lies' except with her eyes. Just as Milady reached the door she smiled back at the girl, explaining; \I want it to powder my back with. I can't reach far enough, and the heavy tip at the end of the spring nuticea the slipper work just right.\ I therefore made a mental note, \Make some for Christmas gifts.\' Is it not a stunning Idea? - Bo new and original! londby emu the letter writing Foplr . it Ita z g u elis wee yew! devotedly, ki t MARKING LINEN. Laundry Hints That Are of Great Practical Value In the Home. The marking of house linen and clothes is a duty which should never • be neglected by the careful house- wife. Not only does \ -it make klenti- Ilication easy, but if performed in the proper manner It will prevent articles of the same kind from being uSed out of order and thus receiving more _than their due share of wear and tear. The usual and most satisfactory method Is to do It with marking ink, either on the material itself or on a small piece of tape sewed on It. The former is preferable, as the mark cannot be obliterated, whereas it is a simple matter ter the tape to be re- moved and replactel by another piece with some one else's initials. With cer- tain articles, such as stockings and other garments the tekture of which will not permit of the use of ink, tape must of course be used. The place where the mark should appear is a matter of individual taste, but it Is most useful in that part which can be most easily seen when the article is folded and, put away. For Instance, stockings should be marked at the Inside of the top of the leg, tablecloths on the under side at the corner, nightdresses at the bottom of the front opening or at the inside of the back of the collar band. Articles pf a similar kind in use at the same time should, in addition to the initials, be marked with numbers as well. For Instance, in the case of handkerchie$s they should be marked with the initials of the owner, under which should be put numbers 1, 2, 3, ausl so on; the same with stockings, nightdresses. serviettes, tablecloths, sheets and, in fact, everything that can be marked at all. They should then be placed in - the drawer or linen cupboard, as the ease may fie, with the numberS in consecutive order. If they,are then taken out for use in their right order and replaced in the same manner after washing, one article will not receive more than its fair share of use. Thus, if handkerchiefs numbered 1 to had been used and washed, they should be replaced under those num- bered 7 to 12, so that they will not be used again before the latter. Again, If tablecloth No. 2 is to go to the laundry, you w..4 . 1 know that it is now the turn of - No. 3, and No. 1 will not be brought into -use out of its proper order. Aid to the Boot injured. Illustrated is a novel shoe brush, or, to be more explicit, shoe brushes, which do not polish the shoe, but re- move all the dust and dirt that collect In the leather. The shoes are placed in a partition between the brusres, and by touching NOVEL SHOE BRUSH. a lever the wheels are set in motion and the brushes revolve quickly, re- moving the soil of a day's wear in the process. Where there are many men in the household this contrivance, which is not expensive, would be a great con- venience. Umbrella Cases. Because in many boarding schools the girls sharing a room also have to share a closet it is the wise thing , ..to have a plainly marked umbrella case which can be hung on a hook behind one or more garments. This case, large enough to hold several umbrellas, Is made of heavy dark denim, bound at the long edges, at the short closed end and at the wide mouth with thick worsted braid and on both fiat sides plalbly-marked in white tape with the Initials of the owner. Much of the trouble Which arises among girls room- ing together at boarding schools grows out of mishnderstandings with regard to appropriating each other's email be- longings, but the student who arrives armed with one of these - cases clearly Indicates to her companion that she regards her umbrellas as her own prop- erty. Practioal Dyeing. Where there are many children in the family it is economy to do consid- erable dyeing. Many a faded muslin can be made to appear in a fresh color. Light evening frocks can be dyed a darker shade and serve for school or afternoon wear. Remember to dye at the same time any extra pieces of ma- terial to serve for altering or patch- ing, as it is almeet impossible to match a dyed material. • White or cream cob:wed . ribbon or flowers May' be given a beautiful. shrimp pink shade by dipping in Water Into which red ink has been dropped. Ordinarily licluid wash bluing used in the same way will tint feathers, whim ate., a pretty pale blue.
