fresh? Mlttt. r. O. 1).
rspilK roses may be used either way.
! X Method 1: Gather fresh rosea on a
dry day when the petals are free from
moisture. Tut Into tbe Jar In layers,
sprinkling salt between the layers.
About four ounces of bay aalt Is said
to be best for a medium-sized jar. The
rosea may be used alone. If very fra
grant, or one ounce each of broken
cloves, cinnamon, mace and orris root
may be added. In any case, seal the Jar
tightly and leave one month.
Many people add a handful each of
such perfumed flowers ana ncros as are
available. For Instance, lavender, sweet j
k.im lemon, verbena leaves, rose ge- !
rantum leaves, jasmine nowers. vioicis,
sweet marjoram, rosemary, woodruff,
sweet briar, heliotrope, etc.
There la no flxed rule. The perfume
may be varied almost indennltely, to
suit taste and convenience.
Method Z: Pry fresh rose petals
quickly In the sun or warming oven.
Place In the Jar In layers, with a sprink
ling of dry salt between. Add spices
as above, either whole or pomdered. If
liked. Add other fragrant flowers, also
dried, as may be available. Pour In l.
cup pure alcohol. Seal for one month
A useful "rose tincture" can bo made
by crowding fresh, fragrant rose petals
Into a fruit Jar and covering with pure
cram alcohol. Let stand three days,
then strain quickly through a cloth,
pressing a little, and pour over a second
jar full of leaves. Kepeat until the
alcohol Is surnclently perfumed, then
use tbe alcohol to add to a mixed or
plain 'rr Jar" or use for toilet pur
poses. Glycerin may be similarly per
fumed. A dry potpourri for either rose Jar
or sachet bags ts made aa followa: One
half pound dried rose petals, one-half
pound dried lavender flowers, four
ounces crushed orris root, one ounce

AS little Squank. the pet goblin of
the court of the Fairy Queen, was
returning home earlj- one morning with
a buttercup full of honey dew for the
fairies' breakfast, he heard a terrible
shriek coming from the heart of a
Diving Into the bower. Squank there
saw that a great black beetle had im
prisoned Queen Bee, who, for the first
time In her life, was out honey-gathering
that morning. The huge beetle
was whetting hla pinchers to seize the
poor little queen when Squank leaped
upon his back and, digging bis sharp
toes Into the cresture's sides sent him
howling In flight.
"Oh. how can I ever repay you!"
exclaimed the Queen Bee, fanning her
self with her wings.
"Don't mention it." replied gallant
little Squank. and, picking up his but
tercup, started homeward.
Now. rescuing the Queen Bee had
delayed the little goblin, and so. In
order that the fairies would not have
to wait for their breakfast. Squank
took a short cut-off through the do
minion of the ogre. Krakawox.
As he passed the ogre's gloomy cas
tle he heard a mournful cry from far
up n the topmost battlements of the
creat tower, und. looking up, he saw
the loveliest little gobllnette that his
eyes had ever beheld behind the barred
window of a prison cell.
"Oh. little Squank." she cried, "can
you not rescue me from the clutches
of this dreadful ogre. He caught me
yesterday and he says that, though
I'm not big enough to eat. he's going
to make sauce out of me at 10:30
o'clock this morning. And Ifa now
15. and I don't want to be made
sauce of." With that, the little gob
llnette. whose name was Wanderllne,
commenced to weep sea In.
"My. this Is a hard task: harder
thun fighting beetles." said Squank to
himself. Just then he heard a buzzing
and Queen Bee lit beside him.
"Run along home with the honey
dew." she said, "and leave the ogre to
me. But come back by 10:30."
Away acuttled Squank. and reached
the futrv palace Just as the cook, a
busy little la.lybug, wns putting break
fast on the table.
Then he hurried back to tbe ogres
castle to see what Queen Bee would
do. When he arrived there. Kraka
wax was Just coming out of his gates.
Before him was a great herd of cattle
for his breakfast. Behind him came
the cook. In a cage he carried was
little Wanderllne. It aTl looked very
hopeless for Cue little gobllnette, and
Squank felt very blue, but Just then
Queen Bee hustled up. looking radiant.
"Everything's all right." she ex
claimed. "Better get on top of that
fence there If you want to get a good
view r-l.the exercises."
-Whuts going to hnppcnr asked
Squank. for he could not see how
Queen Bee could prevail against the
"Just wait." replied Queen Bee.
Th-n, turning to Krakawax. he called
"Oh. Krakawax. release the little
gobllnette. Wanderllne. and I will not
"Ho! ho! ho!" rmired Krakawax In
laughter until the windows rattled for
ten miles around. "Tou harm me.

A ev Marriage Ceremony.
ANEW and unique marriage cere
mony was solemnized recently in
a Western city. The contracting par
ties vert prominent In both the educa
tional and social circles of their town,
which, by the way. was the center of a
great university and the man was one
of the professors. So that the cere
many was not a mere freakish desire
for notoriety on their part, but a sin
cere and serious expression of their
Ideas on th6 subject of matrimony.
Those who attended the weddinsr
for friends were invited in the usual
fashion. It was not In any way a pri
vate affair aay that the ceremony con
sisted of three parts. First, the cou
ple took earth from two separate urns
and with their right and left hands al
ternately dropped It into a third re
ceptacle. Thus they united their phy
sical beings. Then came the union of
minds. The man and women each took
a flask of water and poured the fluid
into a third flask slowly. Their mental
The spiritual union was accomplished
by the lighting of two candles, sym
bolic of the tires of the home, and
holding the two together until the
flaming wax sticks became one. Then,
while the couple went through these
rites, they repeated a service of words,
l:ps close together, thereby making
the breath of the one the breath and
life of the other.
All very unique, isn't It? But despite
the newness of the ceremony, they will
find out, won't they, that marriage is
the same old thins? No matter by what
strange performance the knot is ticil.
married life Itself Jogs along the same
old road. If the bride does not know
how to cook or keep hpuse. if the hus
band does not come In until all hours
of the night and then needs an electri
cally lighted keyhole, if bills outrun
the income, all the earth and air and
fire and water of creation will not pre
vent trouble, will they?
Trobably while they were evolving
their new and. to them, beautiful cere
monv. thev never thought of these
things. Though they were consider
ing the earth, they were not thinking
of matters earthly; though fire entered
into the ceremony, it was not the fire
in the cook stove. Their thoughts in
regard to marriage soared far above
such mundane things. The world they
were living in was a world of beautiful
romance. They were walking upon the
clouds. The need of firmer, surer foot,
ing did not enter their consciousness.
If all sides of marriage cannot be
thoughtfully considered, instead of
dwelling exclusively upon the romance
of It, would it not be better for most
young couples to consider Just how
much the bride-to-be knows about
cooking and housekeeping, whether the
new benedict upon the salary he is re
ceiving can smoke as expensive cigars
as he has been doing. Wouldn't it be
better to do a little accounting as to
their as.ets In the things that are es
sential to a happy and successful mar
ried life, even though these may be
much more prcsaic, than planning a
pretty ceremony of earth and air and
by lire and water? If they did. there
would be apt to be more real romance
about their marriage, romance that
would last. There might not be quite
so much at the beginning of their Jour
ney, but it would increase and grow
brfghter. Upon the other basis, they
may start out with quite a large quan
tity of. what seems gilt-edge romance,
but It soon wears thin and in a short
time Is gone completely.

I told the rangers that I would like

glycerin. Apply this to your face, neck
and arms, rubbing gently until dry.
This lotion does not show or rub off
like powder and Is much better. It is
