PrcVblnant among them .waa tha,
French aport of 'cup and ball. Tou may ,
remember that ona' day the ' English
and tha French ambassadors were clos
eted together for houra, All their at-
tachea war greatly worried; no one
knew what momentoua International da .

Finally, ona of tbem dared to knock

The Instrument for fnla game consist ,
01 a no 1 low cup, uauany 01 wooa, ana
a ball attached to It by a atrong elaatlo.
The principle Ig much the aama aa tnat
which govern the miniature bale and
attached woolen ball with-which tba;,
Of course, the object la to catch tha ..
ball In tha cup again after throwlng.it
tip in tha air. When two are playing
the atrlcteat ecore muat ba kept, either ,
tomake a record or to decide th u-
(remacy. ',. .. ;, ' ,
Tbla game ia again enjoying great pop '
Ularlty in France, and all ita ancient :
conceita are being' revived. . Again we
are presented with cupa and balla of all '
Blse. from the midget, which haa - a
handle tha also "of a toothpick and a '
pith ball, to the glantwhlch haa the
baarleat of iron, balla, of a weight auf
flclent to Injure aerioualy any but an
extremely . ekllful player: end ' of all
ahapea, from the feather duater to the .
policeman' club.' . o ,
The chief benefit 'derived from thla
exercise la qulckneaa of eye and alert
nee of arm. In the lighter varletlea, '
however, it teachea extreme grace alao,
and certainly 1 the . giant excela the
punching bag aa a developer of muscle
though it ia hardly fit for a womanl
In ya olden daya, Indeed, the. entire .
port- waa tabooed by the fair aax. It ,
waa entirely too atrenuon for- their
unaccustomed muscle. Aa the utmoat
poaalblllty of athletios they enjoyed a ..
game of grace hoop or of battledore -and
huttlecock. ' , ;.- '
Thla- former game la Juat what Ita
name implies, it la one of the prat--tloat
spuria In. the world. The Imple-.
menta are two long pollened wood
ticka. covered at the upper bait with
velvet aecured by heavy tapa and two
tape and velvet wound boopa. .
It la dlatlnctly a parlor game.
though It may be playea out of door
alro. Two participant are required,
and tha object la to teaa the hoop ,
alternately from ona atlck to the
other, keeping both going at the aama
time. . Of course, acore la kept of the ,
number of fallurea on each: aide, and .
a maximum number rS throwg la;
previously decided on to "end , the
- game. . .....
When ona playa thla game one aoon
learne that no elephantine antica will
aufflce to keep the hoop going. Tbe
utmoat aklll and graoe are required
'to make even a fair acore. One must,
keep cool, too, and not confuse the
two hoops, ona oomlng and the other
going. And one muat. learn accuracy
in finding now to come neither too
near nor too far, and to toaa neitner
too high nor too low. 1 ?
'' Battledore' and ahuttlecock le aome-
what on tha aama principle. v Tbe bat
tledore la shaped like' a leather
bound tennla racquet, except that In'
place of atrlngs it baa on either aide
' a tightly stretched akin covering, like
, a drumhead. ', ,'' '','
.Tbe ahuttlecock la a email cylinder
of wool aad velvet, with a circlet of
. feather around the top. Of eourse.
It is exceedingly light, and It la dim
' cult to keep even one ball, let. alone
the two often employedgoing from
one bat to the other without falling.
In the mode of oountlng and In the
' grace and dexterity It impart tbla
game closely resembles grace hoop.
, Quoits, of course, waa quite beyond'
the energies of the maid of 1830, but
she did play and enjoy, ring toss,
which Is quoits brought down to a
parlor'baala. It baa exactly the aama
rules for playing, and tba only per
ceptible dl (Terence la that the stake la
mounted on a block of wood Instead
of being Inserted In tha ground and
that the quolte. inrtead. of being of
heavy Iron, are of light-colored pa
pier macho - . ... .
3a addition to the benefits Imparted
by the other sports already described.
.:ng toss gives valuable atooplng and
'.'bending exercise, and thus develops
'.the . muscles of the back, shoulders and
neck. It alto alda in reducing the
lie of the waist, aa bending la the
best exercise known for this purpose.
Archery haa always been the favor
ite aport of the privileged da,
though at the time when it waa really
-the game of games no lady would
i 1 .ve dreamed of attempting It. By '
the beginning of tbe nineteenth cen-.
tury, however, it had become popular
for both aexea. though, according to
the current belief "of the time in worn
en"a inferiority' in all things, "ladlee
handicaps" were alwaya provided. For
ao intricate a pastime rulea cannot be
given. here: it ia ao far a standard
one that books of Instruction are
aaally procurable. '
Thla I will aay, however, that archery
la the Incarnation of grace. Every mo
tion In It la imbued with poise and
boautv. it may not be so athletio aa
. goaf or tennla. - nor ao abaorblng aa
autoraobillng or ballooning, but It la the
1. ost poetical thing wa have left to
' u in tba atrenuoue and pruaalo
- And that is the chief charm of att
1 theae old lame. They are beautiful,.
not only In themselves, but alao b-
cauae of their world-old aymbollam
- And beat of all to the practical
woman of today la the fact that they
. are. a pleaeant way of taking a neuee
oua doae, and of combining pleasure
with the Inevitable and necessary ex
ercise. . ....

- You Are Slightly Mistaken
- I see ymt eaf that after aatng a depila
tory foe the removal ot superfluous hair,
the use et aromatic eplrlte of ammonia la
the water ua-d for wahlng- tha face would .
prevent the further growth of hair. Now I
have never uaad anything for the superflu
ous hair, although the si. lea of my face end
under my chla are eovr-d with fine baJra.
lie you think If 1 uaad tha ammonia In tha
water It won 14 prevent the hair growlne
eny longer or thickert How much ahouid
be used, ease, tiiual It aaowe vetg badly.
' aad I am anxious to ue something tor it. If
I eaa, aafaly. - I believe your arUde eaid
that oontlnued uaa of tbe ammonia woul4
. Onally kill the hair, ao it would Oi-eupear.
Any advKa you eaa give me will be highly
.. appreoiated. . . Mr. W. B. C
Tou have gained a slightly erroneoua
... impression from my words. I recom
mended the use, not of aromatic aplr- .
lts of ammonia but of tha strong am
- monia, or hartshorn. It would not be .
, much good, however, if you do not Uea
a depilatory. Uaa a few drops' in tha
