By MRS. RACHEL L. OLMSTEAD
My husband Is un excellent, good,
puro, noble man. lie has but one
fault bo la very unreasonable. This
defect In bis character it especially
uotlceablo lu tho choice of n placo to
spend our summer vacation. v
Last year Krnnk and 1 discussed for
two months this question as to whero
wo should go for two wceka. Frank
wished to go to some secluded spot In
tho mountains where be could tuko n
rest. Ho works very hard, and fourteen
duys Is all tho recreation be gets dur
Ing tho whole year. That being the
case, I couldn't Bee why bo should
want to go to a poky placo whero bo
wouldn't moot any one, with nothing
to see and nothing to do all day long.
I am abut up at homo all winter
with no maid and a couple of llttlo
children, and I can't get out at all in
tho evening bocauso tbey must not. be
left alone. The consequence la that all
the nice dressea and things I buy are
for summer. That's the only season I
can wear them. Now, Isn't It provok
ing that when the summer comes I
must go to some out of the way place
whero a calico gown would do me aa
well aa a;stlk one?
Last spring when It camo time to
engugo bthrd for our outing, after dla
DUtlnir Wr two months where we
shouldjtVJt'rank maintained that since

wo badlffctter go to different places.
lie wou.8 get rid of the continued
clatter the children make and the. an
noyance of having to correct them ev
cry time thoy misbehaved. I could
go to a seashore resort, where, as be
put it, I could show my fine clothes.
That's all the sympathy a wife gets
from her husband just as If thero was
any uso to buy nice things for no one
Well, Frank went off to a one horse
town In the mountains, stopping at a
hotel near by. 1 went to a largo sea
side city where there were thousands
of people coming and going every day,
It was very nice to be in the whirl.:
but unfortunately I struck a spell of
bad weather. For throe daya there
was nothing but rain and fog. Then
a chill northeast wind sprang up, and
I thought I should freeze. Tbecbil
dren. who bad anticipated bo much
pleasure playing In the sand and run
nlng In bare legs in the foam, couldn't
go out at all, and I was obliged to
devote myself to them all the while. 1
couldn't play nurso and wear 'good
clothes; besides, the weather was too
cold for my thin dresses.
So there I was.
I bad bocn on tho coast for thret-
days when I received a letter from
Frank saying that he was doing
splendidly In the mountains. ' The
weather there was fine, the air was
bracing, and It seemed as If he"Tlrew
In strength with every breath. Hj sup
posed I and tho children sat all day on
the beach with the warm sun pouring
down on us (wbeu It wasn't too hot)
watching the beautiful blue waves roll
In. llo could almost bear the children
laughing and shouting as they ran about
In the sunshine. And be could fancy
mo dressed In those clothes I had been
all winter preparing for the occasion
looking aa pretty as a peach mingling
with well dressed people.
Wasn't It aggravating?
I Just mado up my mind ibat I'd
wait till the first week was up and
If the weather didn't mend I'd pack up
and Join Frank. There wasn't any use
In my staying where I was on account
of my clothes when I couldn't wear
them, and If I were with Frank he
could relieve me of tbo children. lie
would have had a week's absence from
them nnd would now doubtless be glad
to take them out walking and driving
Well, the weather didn't Improve
that is, It cleared up for one day, then
tho clouds camo again and It was
.worso than ever. Every day 1 studied
tho woathcr reports, aud when on the
sixth day thero was a prediction that
another storm was collecting In some
out of tho way placo In northwestern
Canada I telegraphed Frank that 1 wax
coming and took the next train.
We reached bis placo of rest In, tho
evening and drove to bis hotel In beau
tiful moonlight. But tbo next morn
ing wo awoko with the rain coming
down worso than anything I bad seen
r tho seashore. And what do you
think Frank said? uo accused me or
bringing the bad weather with me.
Well, hero I was with my costumes

and It would hnvo been out of place.
Tom did help mo with tbo children,
playing games with them, and when
ever thero was n tomporary let up bo
tween tho showera ho would take
them out for walks. Tho boats were
too wet for rowing nnd tho roads too
muddy for driving. What were my
feelings whon I read In the papers

One day before we wont home wo
had sunshine, and this was all the

airreed that wo would not try the sep

When going nwny to some hitherto
unexplored placo a packet of powder
ed borax, oatmeal powder or some
other water softener should havo n
placo In one's dressing bag. One hopes,
of course, for rainwater, but only In
rare cases Is It to be bad.
A sllco of lemon In the water Jug la
a Blmplo llttlo holiday luxury.
It is far better to prevent tho sun
burn from becoming serious than to
havo struggles nnd mortifications on
returning to town and conventional
dress. If tho slices of lemon are nvail
ablo a good plan is to rub them over
hands and neck nlgbt nnd morning
after washing. The Juice may be left
n for ton minutes or so, then rinsed
off and n llttlo cold cream applied.
This must afterward bo wiped off in
Its turn. A common holiday mistake
ts that of using cold cream too lavish
ly. A llttlo well rubbed In nnd Anally
wiped off Is better than a coating left
on all nlgbt. This latter is apt to
choke up tbo pores nnd to . make 'tho
skin over tender, so that It Is. less fit
,to suffer tho sun's ravages next day.
Buttermilk Is nn excellent sitin
bleach and Is very soothing to apply
after a summer motor spin or a blaz
ing, morning on'the sandB nnd Is said
to euro freckles If persistently used.
Freckles nro caused by an excess of
pigment In the skin. They nro result
ant on tho actinic and not the beat
rays of tho sun and so can be prevent
ed from appearing on tho face by
wearing a red or brown veil.
HOW TO MAKE WATER GARDEN
Inexpensive Plan For a Baok Yard
Bann of Aquatio plants.
Few garden features give greater
pleasure or require less attention than
a water garden, and its construction
can be as simple or as elaborate a proc
ess as desired.
When the larger water lilies are to
bo planted one end of the basin should
bo dug to n depth of at least three
feet (no artificial pond need bo deeper,
no matter bow large) and slope grad
ually to about eighteen inches. Such a
sloping pond will suit tho require
ments of any aquatic plants. Puddled
clay is generally sufficient for the
smaller pools, though they can bo lined
with brick, stone or concrete if. pre
ferred. If there Is no nntural Dow of water
from running broolc or spring, water
from a concealed hydrant will answer
tho purpose, provided a continuous flow
can be maintained, enough to keep the
Inflow nnd outflow relatively even. A
slight movement of the water keeps
tte, pond from becoming stagnant, and
fresb water flowing lu Is necessary for
the health of the plants. Soil can be
put directly on the floor of the basin to
the depth of about ono foot, or boxes
nnd tubs filled with earth holding
plnnts of different species can bo set
In. The soil In either case should be a
rich compost of loam and leaf mold.
Lotus, the various water lilies, water
hyacinths and popples, water snow
flakes, crowfoot, spearwort, plantain,
are all exceedingly lovely flowers that
Will bloom continuously with but lit
tle attention. At the mnrgln of the
pool iris, cardinal flower, forgetme
nots, turtle bend nnd mlmulus can be
planted, ns well as the inuny varieties
of ferns. Buck of these can come the
moisture loving shrubs, such as azalea,
dogwood, vlscosa, laurel and magnolia.
How to Mend Rugs.
Oriental rugs which are bndly worn
can bo satisfactorily mended at home.
Re-enforco the tender places by putting
underneath them a piece of burlap.
Match tho colors in tho rugs ns neurly
as possible In one cent skeins of
woreteds. These will be too bright, so
rub in strong coffee and dry thoroughly
before using. Take the worsted dou-
bio nnd sew closely through nud
through both rug nnd burlnp. following
tho pattern of the udjuceut figures.
Lcnvo the stitches on tho upper side
longer than tho surrounding nap and
shave ovenly down to IL
How to Absorb Tobacco Odors.
By putting a bowl of fresh water In
a room where men have been smoking
all odor will be absorbed by morning,
provided cigar ends nre not allowed to
stay in the room. A bowl of water is
also invnluublo In cases of sickness
whero the window cannot be opened.
Tho water will chango the chnracter of
tho air In un hour or two. It will be
seen from this how Injurious It must

covered for any length of time.
How to Make an Iron Holder.
Paper Is a good nonconductor ot
heat, so that If several thicknesses of
pnpor were placed on the inner side
when making nn Iron holder It would
savo the worker's hands. As another
suggestion, place several thicknesses
within a fold o( old stocl'lngs, for
there is nothing bo good iih stockings
as a nonrculsttng power against uctit.
How to Detect Chicory In Coffee.
To detect the presence of ohlrory In
coffee ndd a taulcHpoonful or the
ground coffeo to a glass of cold water.
Do not stir tho coffee Into the water,
but merely placo it on top. The coffee
Will float, but the chicory will Bluk tu
