Ribbons which are not really illrty,

may be freshened by being rubbed ou
both sides with a soft muslin to free
them from dust, then pressed with a
hot iron under a piece of tine wet mus

for a few minutes in cold salted water
(to set the colors), then put luto warm
soapy water, moved about in it and
drawn through the hand without crum

nearly cold water. Gum arable solu

Children of all ages may be greatly
amused aud entertained and many dull
hours passed by means of a well ar
ranged scrap book. Some members of
almost every family subscribe for at
least one magazine and newspaper,
and well selected clippings from these
should fill the scrap books. If you lack
material ask your friends and acquaint
ances for all the old magazines that
they do not care to keep any longer.
Old magazines are ju st ns good as
new ones for this purpose. Many mag
azines and newspapers now’ have pages
devoted exclusively to children. Cut
out all the pictures, funny rimes and
fairy tales that you think would please
a child. Also arrange them in the
scrap books as nearly ns possible to
suit different ages, so that you may
turn quickly to material suitable for
any occasion. In this way older cfiil-
d >n„ may quickly find material that
the* can read to the little tots.
Have the books medium sized, not
too bulky for children to handle easily.
If you do not wish to buy a book for
the purpose you may use any strong
book that is the right size by first tear
ing out every other leaf, so-as to give
room for the insertion of the clippings
nnd avoid unnecessary bulging out of
the book. These homemade scrap
books may be made attractive by put
ting a fancy cover ou them.

Neckbands of black velvet and
rhinestones never seem to lose
their allure for women. The
black and white effect close to
the face becomes any type of
beauty, and the bands them-
selves disguise the shape of an
unlovely throat and bring out
the beauties of one which Is be-
yond criticism. These bands are
made In Innumerable ways be-
cause they must, of course, suit
the purses of innumerable worn-
en. If you cannot expend very
much money for this purpose bet-
ter get up a “dog collar,” using
a width of ribbon suited to the
length of your throat and dec-
orating It with ns many rhiue-
stone slides as you can afford,
but certainly one at the front
center of the strip and another
covering the fastening at the
nape of the neck. Hut you need
not have slides at nil. Buy rhiue-
stone beads of Infinitesimal size
and sew them over a stamped de-
sign or sprinkle them thickly, but
regularly, over the surface of the
velvet, always, however, leaving
a narrow rim of the black next
to the fiesh.

M arshfield Children Use
L an gu age of Their Own
The Record tells a queer story of
two small Marshfield children who
have evolved a language of their
own. in which they converse fluent
ly, so lar as appearances go, but
which is entirely unintelligible to
any one else. The Record says:
For hours at a time these two
little ones will converse with each
other iu a talk entirely foreign to
others, but undoubtedly with a
meaning which each understands
The conversations of
tire children are occompanied with
gestures, which it seems are well
limed aud torm a portion of the
talk being carried on.
words uttered by the youngsters
are lull ol meaning there can be no
doubt, as at intervals one will stop
and a reply will be made by the
other and then, natural as ever, if
the talk requires a response the one
will go on or, perhaps, talk will be
broken into by the one listening.
Th is strange method of conveying
ihought between the two has been
going on for some time.
