The handing of a genuine piece of Ore in place of a piece of Rock by two of the characters in Quot the three of us came about through a letter and i piece of Galena being sent manager Lawrence by a mine owner who after seeing the play during its run ill new a Ork Tad his sensibilities in Ore rudely shocked by the piece of Stone used in the play.

Hands so As to hide the base det Cut Ion from the audience. A a while i Thlik you will agree with me that Many new yorkers do not know the diff Rente Between a new York Cobblestone and a piece of real Ore i have thought that in the interest of the Many Western people who go to see your play the leading actress might prefer to handle a genuine piece of property rather than a piece of new York Rock. A i am therefore taking the Liberty of sending you a piece of Galena from mines which will have the advantage of being recognized by mining men and of being appreciated by new yorkers if from no other than an educational standpoint. ,.

For this reason Carlotta Ellison has Many friends who in no Way Are connected wit i the profession so that she can get away from the atmosphere of the theater.

Sulking is Folly cheerful disposition valuable asset. Avoid appearance of pessimism and discontent and you will keep old friends and gather in new ones. I know a woman of charming personality and great tact says a fashion Leader. She makes few demands on people allowing her friends the privilege of their own opinions in other words minding her own business. 1 but there is one Quality that she does demand in her friends and that is a sunny disposition. A i want the people about to to be cheerful a says she. Quot i cannot Bear glum faces and sulky she is Sweet and Bright herself and diffuses an atmosphere that cannot but affect those with whom she comes in Contact. She is not physically robust and sometimes it requires great Effort to maintain her Bunny cheerfulness. It you have Ever lived with a peevish Pessimist you can appreciate what a Comfort the sunny person is one sour discontented face at the breakfast table can spoil the meal for every one. Very often people do hot feel in the mood to talk but at least they can look pleasant in their silence and refrain from disagreeable remarks. The girl who is tempered Over her. Work can count her Friend by the Cora other Quot girls Are glad to show her Little favors to help her with her work if she is rushed. They All Lilje her because she is never unkind or Sharp in her manner to them. I know that sometimes it is desperately hard to keep Back the Sharp retort that seems As though it must Force itself out. But if you can control yourself for just a minute or so the temptation will have passed and the Victory yours. As for the Silks they Are the most disagreeable of All forms of bad temper it is undignified to sulk no Ono is sorry for you every one is bored and will keep away from you As much As possible. And incidentally to sulk will Dray most unbecoming lines upon your face. A look pleasant a the photographers used to say when taking a photograph. It is a very Wise saying and one that every one of us might pin on our looking Glass. Done to go about All Day with a fancied or real grievance festering your heart and spoiling your face. Either forget it or go straight to the source of the bitterness and have it out. Explanation very often removes the cause which has sprung from misunderstanding. But no matter what you do done to act sulky and peevish. Be sunny if you possibly can a. Combination Sachet. Convenient Little receptacle for gloves ties and handkerchiefs. Quot a place for everything and everything in its place a la a motto Worth remembering and acting upon even in the Case of such matters As the arranging of those Small but All important dress accessories which Are so easily crushed and crumpled if they Are tossed carelessly into a drawer when not in use. In the accompanying illustration a useful combination Sachet May be seen arranged with new powder rag. Members of the gentler sex used to carry Small Chamois skin bags filled with Talcum powder concealed about their persons in various mysterious a bag was not at hand the knotted Corner of a handkerchief would do. The powder thus concealed in conjunction with the moist ened Corrier of a handkerchief was used to make an Impromptu toilet in cases where soap and water was not at hand and to restore the ravages of wind and dust. This apparatus now has been condemned As crude and bungle some the newest wrinkle is the i Quot papier Poudre Quot a French importation. It is Brittle Square of thin paper smooth on one Side and slightly roughened on the other which can be listed equally Well As a sponge powder puff or perfume bag. The slightly roughened Side acts As a sort of. Sandpaper cleaning the dust from the face while at the same time the scented rubbed on. The advantage of the papier Poudre is in the fact that it can be concealed anywhere in the Palm of the Glove under the Belt or folded in the handkerchief and in the hands of a skillful manipulator can to used without attracting the slightest attention by Means of Clever combination with 1, the handkerchief. Three separate divisions to hold gloves ties and handkerchiefs. A fourth pocket might easily be added for veils. The cover should be of soft silk tue Flatin used with fib ii stil Gil and Quot embroidered in front both on the Flap and on the Sachet itself with some Dainty Floral design. When u girl has a Flower name such As Rose Violet or Marguerite for instance the Sachet might be embroidered Witt the Flower to correspond. A Little pad filled with Sachet powder might Bis sewn in one of the pockets under the silk lining. Such a Case As this will be found specially useful when packing for a Days visit. Where trouble begins. People would have but few real troubles if they did no to try to act smart. Colonial lanterns a fad. Women have found something Quot old that is Quot new decorative Art. It is the colonial hand made lantern. This lantern is used in libraries literary Dens studies and for Hall lights. It 1b particularly becoming in american women inasmuch As it is a unique reflection of our Early history. Of course it is impossible to Acquard some genuine colonial lanterns but there Are not enough to go round and an aged Man in Clyde n. Y., who claims to be the oldest Active Metal worker in the United states is helping the fad Quot along by making skillful re it productions and even improving on the artistic Beauty of the original. His name is e. A hag son and several Chicago women have his lanterns made of tin perforated in wonderful design hanging in their Homes. Or. Hudson is 88 years old and has worked continuously at the Bench for 75 years he is the Only reviver of the colonial lantern and the reproductions that he turns out Are like those used in the time of Washington a facsimile of the lantern of Paul Revere Hung in the Tower of the old North Church on that notable night of april 18, 1776. The lanterns Are hand punched from the inside the Sharp edges on the out Side giving an Irr descent sparkle that rivals Cut Glass when the Candle is aflame. Baby a new coat to Lovely. Upon the Long baby cloak a la Mode hand embroidery is lavished evea More freely than upon the let to dresses and while this embroidery 1b still chiefly of the very Fine Babyish Quot character a certain boldness of effect which would not be considered Correct in the dress is often found la. The embroidery of the cloak. These cloaks Are made in various materials but the loveliest shown for the summer season Are it in lingerie stuffs or in silk the luge re material having of course a foundation of India silk falling quite separate from the cloak proper. T these cloaks of mull Batiste or finest Linon Are most delightful affairs so soft and Dainty and baby like with their lace frills and insertions their hand embroideries and their fluttering knots and ends of ribbon. Often one cloak will have several linings one of White and one of Pinlac or of Blue
