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.

Mine are. very, tender and ugly from a long course of housework, but now 'I’ve got some help I want to Improve my hands. “A COUNTRY READER.\ The working housekeeper’s hands have many injurious Influences to en­ counter, but the very worst of them is the constant Immersion in water1 which dishwashing and other cleaning up involve. Rapid changes from hot to cold water, and the reverse, are very hard on the hands, the changes of- ten^perature making the nails brit­ tle and scoring them with the ridges so often seen on much-used hands. The texture of the skin is also coars­ ened, while the soaps used in all forms of housework, being full of al­ kali, may so attack the delicate flesh about the nails as to loosen them. So a proper care of the nails certainly means a proper care of all the hands, and it is easy enough to protect them when doing some forms of coarse work. There are heavy white cotton gloves for sweeping and dusting which cost only ten cents a pair. Before put­ ting these on, the palms and nails should be greased with olive oil or vaseline, either unguent rubbed well into the skin and all about the nail scarf. The gloves should also be regu­ larly washed, for - when they are grimed with dirt they are certainly useless for beautifying purposes. With these gloves and a mop, dishes and cooking utensilB may be washed without injury to the hands, or, if preferred, rubber gloves could be used for-the dishwashing. The first care of hands Injured with housework begins with the cleansing -bath, with soft water barely more than tepid, and the soap of a very good sort. If the water used is hard soften it with a teaspoonful o f borax,' and before using the soap shave it up and boil it down .to a jelly. Get a cake of good old castlle for the pur­ pose, and after the soap is dissolved pour in about half a cup of benzoin, stirring it well into the Jelly. Begin the bath, by wetting the hands, .and then ruh the .-Jelly> on them, -working- the hands together in the usual way as when using soap. Wash off in one water and then rinse in another o f the same temperature, drying the hands at once on a clean, soft towel. Such a hand bath should1 be taken every night before going to bed, and when the hands are dry some unguent must be rubbed at once over and about the nails—either olive oil or vas­ eline, as hitherto stated. As numerous baths, even with the best soap and softest water, are not ’always good for sensitive nails and delicate skin, it is wise to clean the hands several times during the day with olive oil or palm oil; if the hands are well rubbed with either of these, then dusted with talcum powder, and wiped off with a coarse and yet soft towel, the soil will be entirely re­ moved. Coarsened nails are much im­ proved, too, by the wearing of loose old white kid gloves, both during the day and at night, while the regular gloves worn should also be fairly loose and of a soft leather such as chamois or doeskin.

I am a very: Interested reader of all your good advice and {suggestions to the many asking aid .from you. May I, too, ask a few questions? Am just married and moved into our dear lit­ tle bungalow, and look to you for ad­ vice. For which foods are finger bowls used, and does a finger bowl .stand in a glass plate? When are the finger bowlB placed on the table? When individual salt dishes are placed oh the tabl£ frith salt spoons, is the salt conveyed to the plate with small spoon? Please give me a recipe for a fruit salad containing grapefruit and one without, also a cabbage sglad recipe, If not too much fnbuWe t o ? you? In having cards printed shall I have my husband's name, on my card, such bb “Mrs. H. B. Jones” (or Harry B.) ? Is it good taste to have a door plate with name on on our new home?—V. G. N. Finger bowls are necessary when fruit is served or com on the cob, and many hostesses have them brought in with the dessert service or after it. Each bowl rests on a glass plate tc match or on a china plate on top of ft •fine finger bowl doily. The salt spoon is used by the individual to put the salt on his plate. I cannot take the limited space to write out recipes un­ less for some very unusual dish that) will be a novelty. What you wish will; be found in any up-to-date cook boob.1 Your cards should be engraved with your husband’s full name. Door plates are- seldom used now. Ig im iliD N S if iG t iE FOR {MANITOBA.” j From “ N. B. D.” Will you kindly answer through the paper whether it is proper to bring a box of candy or chocolates when taki ing a lady to the theater? Also whioh side should a gentleman be on (right or left of lady) in escorting her across the ballroom floor, and on which sldt should he seat himself?—N. B. D. , There is nothing improper about taking a box of candy to the theater, but it should be eaten during the fin termisslon and not during the play, A man walks at the left of a lady anq sits at her left, offering his right ans when occasion requires it. Glove Etiquette. Is It necessary to remove the glove before shaking hands? Are there oer. tain occasions when this is or is not necessary?—“WAITING.” If a man Bhould be working an<J have on heavy soiled gloves he should rempve them before shaking hands, otherwise it is not necessary. MADAME MERRI. Breeze Baskets. The bedroom that is redolent o f the old-fashioned' soent of lavender, sug­ gests refreshment and peace. It is not enough to - line the wardrobe shelves with lavender sachets, though to do so is a step in the right direc­ tion. ‘ Very- pretty are the hanging “breeze” baskets which every breath of air from the outside encourages to send forth a delicious, scent. The baskets are hung upon ribbon and slung upon the looking glass or upon the handle of an escritoire, out oj sight maybe, but not out of mind. P r e t t y D e c o r a t i o n f o r t h e H a n d k e r c h i e f o r G l o v e C a s e ple^\TodaY-:.ffie; popiflatlqn, is{less' than] five {hundredthousand;pud the-\df% termUiation; of-, the representative me~$ {ofvthe- Provlnce -to devote their, best’ ienergies to Increasing this to a milf .‘lion is a .worthy one. There is already, a widespread Interest in every munip?. ipality; committees ' are appointed^ whose - dp ties are-to secure such .a': thorough-knowledge of local condlf tions that, whether the applicant for information be a laborer for the farm, a would-be r tenant, a probable home­ steader, the buyer o f a small improved farm or the purchaser o f a large tract for, colonizing farmers, the informa-, tion'ls at, hand,-free. The- advantages that Manitoba pos­ sesses are many, and with the ex­ ploitation that will be given them by the birth of this new acquisition to the settlement and immigration prop­ aganda that is being carried on by the Dominion Government, there is no doubt that the establishment of the bureau will, very soon bring about the results looked for. Manitoba is prac­ tically the gateway of the great grain belt of the West. Its farm lands have demonstrated time and again that tniy mWe a ylelctlng value that practically makes them worth over one hundred dollars per acre. Added to the yielding value o f the land, therp Is an Increased value on accdunt of Its nearness to markets, and the mat­ ter of freight rates is carefully con­ sidered by the cautious buyer.' But the Information more valuable to the Incoming settler is that it still has an Immense amount of vacant fertile land open for homesteads. This dispels the Idea that free homesteads in Manitoba are about exhausted. In addition to this, the territory recently added to the Province will open up a home­ steading area which when filled Bhould fully satisfy the “Million for Manitoba League.” Within the old boundaries there is an area of 47,360,- D00 acres, less,than six million acres sf the 16% million acres occupied be­ ing under cultivation. At present there are over 20 million acres of available land capable of being put under the plough. If in every one of the 195,000 vacant quarter sections of the Prov­ ince an average family o f four persons were placed, there would be added a rural population of nearly 800,000. So there is room for additional hundreds sf thousands on the farms of Mani­ toba, without any possibility of con­ gestion. ik e population per mile in Iowa is 39.4, in Minnesota it is 23.5. That in Manitoba is only 7.1. A glance at the map, copies of which will be forwarded upon application to any Canadian Government Agent, Bhows that Manitoba is wonderfully well supplied with railways. There are but few farms that^r-e more:than ten or twelve miles from a railway line: elevators are convenient,- and markets are always good. The grow­ ing of grain, while a. big feature in the inducements held out, is well re­ enforced by the great possibilities that exist in all portions of the Province, for the raising of stock, for-dairying, for hogs, and for a successful class of mixed farming, and what gives addi­ tional interest is the fact that there Is so much land in the Province open for free homesteading that Improved farms in almost all of the 98 munici­ palities can be purchased at very low figures. Many of- the owners of these have made sufficient upon which to re­ tire and are becoming residents of the cities. In addition to the export nu> ket for the produce of the farm, Man­ itoba has a number o f large cities and towns providing a splendid local mar­ k e t Truck and garden farming are highly profitable branches. Winnipeg is a city bordering on 200,000; Bran­ don is a splendid centre, Portage la Prairie is the ,hub of an excellent dis­ trict, and Yorkton, Minnedosa, Dau­ phin, Morden, Manltou and a dozen other towns are important help as con­ sumers. The Dominion and Provincial immi­ gration officials are working in strong sympathy-with the “Million for Mani­ toba League,” and in addition to the general literature sent out by the Gov­ ernment, the League has prepared pamphlets giving useful and concise Information, which on addressing the Secretary, Million League, Winnipeg, Manitoba, will be forwarded free. His Veracity. Jim Slocum of Montgomery county, avers the Kansas City Journal, was cafied as a witness to impeach the tes­ timony of a man in that county. Jim was asked if he was acquainted with the reputation of the witness for truth and veracity. Jim said that he guessed maybe he was. \Is it good or bad?\ “Well,” said Jim, ‘1 don’t want to do the man no injustice, “but I will say that if his neighbors were to see him looking as if he was dead they would w a n t„som e corroboratin’ evi­ dence before they would be willing to bury him.\ • •• ' 'T ’ \ 1 *” '’I#-; - .

The Real Cause. The temperance orator was waxing eloquent • “What,” he demanded, “ what causes more misery than liquor?” “Thirst,” responded a husky voice from the rear of the halt Special Status. “Why does that fellow put on so many airs among his companions?” “ ’Cause he’s near-society, he is. He was once run over by a multi-million­ aire’s motor car.” A Hint. He—I don’t approve of tips. She—It has been noticed that you domot even tip your hat.
