The fountain pen is absolutely a

is needed. The suitcase be also a

journey, but once she is aboard the

neccesity.

Marking the Bride's Linen

WHEN a bride starts work on
her household linen — the
process of marking — there
are several questions that
arise. She may be at a loss to just
what initials to place on the linen,
she may not know the correct size
letters to use on the various pieces, or
where to place them. These problems
have been confronting June brides for
years and years, and often it takes
considerable [delaying?] to bring out the
desired [blurry].

It is the custom to always mark
a bride's linen with the initials of
her maiden name. Of course, it is
possible that fashions may change—
although never radically—regarding
the size or the placing of the letters,
but the rule of using the bride's ini-
tials has never been altered and
probably never will be. She may use
one or two, just as she pleases; but
she should use neither letter of her
new name. Through the ages it has
been the custom to place the initials
of the maiden name on all linen, for
the simple reason that while the linen
is being prepared the maid still retains
that name. She has not taken up her
married name, and therfore the linen
is really given to her while she is un-
married.

At present the letters of a table-
cloth should be approximately two
inches in length, and the letter should
come just within the edge of the ta-
ble. On a square cloth the initial
should be placed at one corner, but
almost any location will answer for
the round cloth. Napkins are always
marked in one corner, usually about
three inches from the edge, with the
letters about three-quarters of an inch
in length. Sheets are always marked
on the upper edge in the center, three
inches from the hem, and the initials

[article continues on middle section, column 2]

should be about two inches in length.

In most instances pillow slips are
marked to match the sheets in let-
ters from one inch to one and one-
half inches in length. It is a rule to
mark sideboard cloths with the letters
from one to two inchese in length. The
letters are placed in such a manner
that they may be seen on the side-
board. They may be located at one
end and half way across the cloth.
If the sideboard cloth is decorated
with emproidery of the eyelet variety
the inital can be worked in the same
way, using a similar stitch—small
eyelets and seed stiches.

Many brides of the season have
taken up a [blurry] manner of marking
the household linen—that of working
the letters out of plain, white net.
This plan is a very decorative one
and is not at all hard to do. In the
first place the initial to be embroid-

[article continues on middle section, column 3]

ered is stamped on the linen and
backed by the net. Then the thread
is taken very carefully around the
angles of the letters, and then the
linen is cut carefully away. All edges
are buttonholed down to the linen,
leaving a transperent letter outlined
with very heavy buttonholling. The
edges of the net are trimmed away
when the work is finished.

In order to make the whole more
effective, a good plan is to embroider
a small wreath or spray about the
letters.

Regarding the proper initials for
the household linen, it might be said
that the bride's initials should be
placed on almost all of her posses-
sions, especially those received before
her wedding. She should not forget
that her maiden initials should be
placed even on her going-away trunk
and suitcase.

Mr. Justwed Has a Hundred Thousand Dollars - For One Minute

That there could be any possible
connection between the making of
money and a little domestic
squabble meams scarcity evi-
dent. Oh, no, not making in the sense
of earning for, ye gods and a little
[blurry] aren't nearly all domestic mis-
understandings based upon that
fact—not in the sense of actually
manufacturing money. The Justweds
found the connection the other day
while sight-seeing in the Bureau of
Engraving and Printing at Washing-
ton whither, you recall, they had gone
for a little Springtime jaunt.

Not that money itself nor the mak-
ing of it was responsible for the little
difference—oh, no. It must have been
Mr. Justwed's — well —natural mar-
ried man perseverances. At least, Mrs.
J. is of that opiniom. In addition,
she felt thoroughly justified in dem-
onstrating for his benefit the truth
of the old adage, "What's sauce for
the goose is sauce for the gander."

For the convenience of tourists in
the Capital of the Nation and to prevent
vast theft by visitors they have a
corps of trained guides at the Bureau
to [plant?] them around the building
and explain the many interesting
phases of the making of our paper
currency. Parties of a dozen or more
are led by a guidealways a woman
are led by a guide—always a woman
—through they rooms where the dies
are engraved, where the printing is
done, where it is packed in special
boxes to be carried to the Treasury.
The guides are, naturally, only human
and their explanation can be either
perfunctory or extremely enlighten-
ing. Much depends upon their frame
of mind and the people in their re-
spective parties though, to be rare,

[article continues on top section, column 3]

enough to show frequent repetition
can cover the subject by rule without
even thinking about it.

As such Mr Justwed must needs
make himself a little different from
the rest of the party, assume a por-
tion of the management of the affair

[text split by image of Mr. Justwed and the guide]

She made a hit with Mr. J. instantly.

and in the vernacular, "start some-
thing." He did—from the insight he
saw the guide detailed to conduct the
party of which the Justweds were in-
terested spectators.

She was an exceedingly fetching
guide. She wasn't old and she hadn't
been in the Government service long

[article continues on top section, column 4]

enough to show the unmistakable
earmarks of the grind of it all. She
was pretty, dainty, stylish, what you
will. This point is she made a hit
with Mr. J. instantly.

But this is just between us two, for
naturally, Mr. J wouldn't admit it for

[text split by image of Mr. Justwed and the guide]

a minute. Husband like he explained
to Mrs. Justwed later that he was
"jollying her along" solely to secure
better service for the—ahem— entire
party!

Mrs. J. even agreed that such mag-
nanimity was indeed commendable
but inquired immediately if he didn't
think a man bad to possess a pretty
big bump of conceit to imagine his
presence could produce that effect
upon a woman who sees a hundred or
so men every day! Whereupon—but
that was the aftermath, not the in-
cident.

"Come this way, please," said the
pretty guide to the party as a whole,
in quite her most efficient tone. Nor
did she cease at any time to be of-
ficial; the other was entirely on Mr.
Justwed's part. None of them over
do.

"Certainly," answered Mr. J., tak-
ing the request entirely to himself.
And he placed himself directly at her
side as she led them down the long
corridor.

When she showed them a case of
[dies?] from which money was printed Mr.
J. was right at her elbow with a
dozen or more questions. And when
she then led them to an elevator to
be lifted to the floor on which the
printing is done who was it stood
aside gallantly and insisted that she
enter before he did? Who? Why,
Homer Justwed to be sure!

He wanted to know all about the
ink. How it was made, why it was
green, did it permanently stain the
fingers, could it be manufactured by
any one except Uncle Sam? To all
his quaries the guide gave him cour-
teous, pleasant, formal answers—
that's what she was paid to do!

Then he self-[blurry] spokes-
man for the party—evinced extreme
interest in her work. Was it tire-
some? How long were her hours?
How many guides were employed?
Did she ever have "frank" people to
deal with? What—some fresh ones,
too! Well, well!

That proved too much for Mrs. J—
who had followed along quietly with
the rest of the party all the while.
She bit her lip, ground her heel in the
floor and vowed to get even with
Mr. J.

Then the fair guide led them to the

[article continues on top section, column 5]

room in which the pages of printed
notes are assorted, counted and
bundled ready for delivery to the
Treasury Department. Mr. J. at once
became an animated interrogation
mark. He explained that he was ac-
customed to seeing money in large

[text split by image of Mr. Justwed and the guide]

quantities since he was cashier of a
bank in his home town. But he ac-
knowledged this beat anything he had
ever seen before.

Was any of it ever stolen? What—
every single bit of paper, printed and
unprinted, had to be accounted for
each night before any of the employees
were allowed to leave the building?
Well, well—that was indeed worse

[article continues on top section, column 6]

than having to balance the books
every evening. Did she —

But at that point the dainty guide
interrupted to lift a pile of notes from
the table on which they reposed and
explained to the party that any one
who wished might hold them for a min-
ute or so—just "to see how it feels
to have a hundred thousand dollars
in your hands at one time."

Obviously, Mr. J. would have been
the first to try it—but a grinning
countryman, his eyes wide with won-
der, beat him to it. Several of the
women in the party screamed in mock
dismay as they gingerly supported the
small fortune for a second or two.
Then it was passed to Mr. J.

"Hey, [Blossom?]," he said, turning
to find Mrs. Justwed. "If we duly had
an airship now we'd sail right out of
here and—"

But Mr. J. was not in the party!

Mr. J. gasped a moment and sud-
denly lost all interest in the hundred
thousand and the guide.

For there, in the room they had
just left, was Mrs. Justwed deep in
conversation with a lusty, handsome
young printer who was solicitously
and eagerly explaining to her the gen-
tle art of printing the currency of the
realm!

That she was immensely interested
was plainly evident from her close at-
tention and the sweet smiles with
which she rewarded his efforts every
now and then.

Indeed, it was only after Mr. J.
had called her name three times that
she looked up.

Then she remarked much as one
does when interrupted at a pleasing
task, "Oh, is it you?"

exactly like foulards.

Silk covered hairpins are a nov[elty]

Shields for the
Kimono Sleev[es]

EVERY woman has experien[ced]
the difficulty of imperling dr[esss]
shields in a kimono sle[eves,]
blouse or bodice. The shields [will]
not lie flat, even when sewed
in several places, and the drawing
the sewed in shield is sure to [have]
the effect of the outside of the bl[ouse.]
A resourceful little woman has [come]
upon a clever idea. She takes
lingerie blouses that have begun [to]
show signs of wear around the sh[oul-]
ders; cuts off the sleeves above [the]
elbow and removes the collar, [cut-]
ting away the blouse at the top [of]
a corset cover. In this lingerie
she sews the shield securely and [the]
outer blouse is protected without [be-]
ing pulled or drawn by having [the]
shield sewed to its fabric.

Facts Concerning the Baby

GREAT care should be exer-
cissed in the bathing of the
baby. The bath usually con-
sists of an application of olive
oil, and as soon as the baby is born
it is wrapped warmly in a soft blan-
ket. During the oiling process, only
one portion of the tiny body is ex-
posed to the air at a time. In this
way chilling is avoided. Only one or
two tablespoons of olive oil are
necessary for the bath. This is
slightly warmed and is applied to the
skin with a soft cloth. Then it is
wiped off with another soft cloth, and
the skin is found to be clear and
clean. For the first few days of its
life the baby should be oiled every
morning, and the eyes treated with a
boric acid solution. When King Baby
is two weeks old he may be given a

[image of woman pushing stroller down street, spans cols. 5-6]

[article continues on middle section, column 6]

[blurry] milk every morning. But the tub
bath should be avoided for a longer
time in case the baby is poorly nour-
ished, the olive oil baths being kept
up for a longer time.

A baby's stomach is a very delicate
instrument, as most mothers have
discovered, and thus there is a neces-
sity for a strict diet. The very young
baby is unable to digest much except
milk, and if the stomach is con-
stantly imposed upon by being forced
to take foreign substances, it rebels
and will never do its work properly.
Improper food often causes sickness
and death, while in other cases the
stomach may be permanently injured.
Until a baby is fully a year old, it
should live almost entirely on good,
pure milk.

It also requires a moderate amount

[article continues on middle section, column 7]

of water each day. Physicians [agree]
that the only addition to the [diet]
should be a teaspoonful of
juice once a day, after the baby [is ?]
months of age. When the baby [is a]
year old a little prune juice or
of baked apple may be given
each day. Gradually other articles [of]
food may be added to the diet.
These must be things that are [easily]
digested by so tender a stomach. [The]
baby should be urged to drink [plenty]
of water between meals, but it sh[ould]
never be given ice water.

Special care should be taken in [the]
selection of the milk for the [baby.]
In case it is cow's milk, it should [come]
from a reliable dairy. Those who [have]
made a study of baby food [blurry]
milk from Jersey or Guernsey cat[tle is]
usually too rich for babies. The [milk]
must be kept strictly clean and [free]
from contaminating odors. [Bottle]
and milk pans should be [soaked]
every day with hot water in whi[ch a]
little baking soda has been [blurry].
Afterward they can be rinsed in [clean,]
fresh water. Absoslute [blurry]
the care of the milk is temperat[ive.]

FOR KITCHEN APRONS.

WHEN making aprons for kit[chen]
wear it is a good plan to [add]
an extra thickness of the [ma-]
terial just across the front below [the]
waist, as this part of the garment [??]
elves the greatest wear. Then, [when]
the outside becomes thin, there is [a]
patch all ready and faded to the [same]
shade as the apron. This plan [can]
also be carried out to advantge [when]
making sleeves for children's dr
is the little elbows soon c
through.

Afternoon Cards.

Miss Clifford Irvine charmingly
entertained on Saturday afternoon,
this being a pretty compliment to
Mrs. William Gilreath's house guests,
Mrs. W. E. Adams and Miss Allen
from Thomaston, Ga., Mrs. Tiller, of
Washington D. C., and Miss Hines,

The Irvine home on Hampton
avenue was thrown open and was
particularly attractive with the added
beauty and fragrence of quantities
of Dorothy Perkins roses which were
sent from Miss Addison's exquisite
flower garden. There were pale
vases of lovely sweet peas in all
thick delicate colors.

Before the game was begun a most
refreshing punch was sered by Miss
Cordelia Moore, who also assisted
Miss Irvine in scoring. An enthusi-
astic game of progressive euchre
was played, after which the cards
were cut for the consolation, which
was won by Miss Eleanor Furman,
she with the honor guests each re-
ceiving a lovely cottage bouguet of
sweet peas.

An ice course was served on the
card tables.

This was one of the most enjoyable
of the lovely affairs given by Miss
Irvine, who entertains with a charm-
ing grace and ease of manner.

Her guests included, besides the
honor guests, Mrs. Frank Robinson,

MRS. POWELL
IS NOW HAPPY

----------o----------
Her Miserable Experience For More
Than Four Months Enables
Her to Appreciate Good
Health.

----------o----------
Dry Ridge, Ky.—"I am so happy,"
writes Mrs. Lydia Powell, from this
place, "to be well. I was so poorly
that I was almost dead. I had a pain
in my left side. My stomach was
weak and I was just a skeleton! Our
family doctor treated me for four
months, but I did not get any better.

I had heard so much about Cardui,
the woman's tonic, that I thought I
would give it a trial. Now, I am
thankful for wonderful help I have
received from it. I believe if I had
not taken Cardui, I would have been
dead or crazy now. My health is
very much improved.

When I commenced to take Cardui,
I could hardly walk across the room.
Now I can walk four miles and do
my work with a great deal more
ease. I will always recommend Car-
dui to all suffering women. I owe
my life and health to Cardui, and I
cannot praise it enough for the good
it has done me."

Cardui has a record of more than
50 years' success as a medicine—a
tonic—for weak, tired, worn-out wo-
men.

Suppose you try it.
It will help you.
