Proper Way for Women to Walk—Care

_ Onion*—Children with Cold Feet—In
Several years ago I found myself—a
stranger in a strange place—obliged to
change help («cause of the poor health of
my valued, valuable and well proven Esthor
Many candidates for the place appeared, but
it seemed that my choice lay, if not between
evils, at least tietween undesirables. There
seemed to be the fewest outs ui a short state
ured, soft voiced colored girL She proved a
fairly good cook and laundress, of docile
temper, willing to labor and to learn, but
almost wholly untraiued. l^eft motherless at
an early age, like Topsy she had “growed,"
picking up bits of household skill as she
drifted from one home to another. In this
way she had gathered enough wisdom to se
cure food, shelter and clothing, but remained
a very child in the management of her own
affairs Her wardrot»e was of the scantiest.
One or two little bundles comprised the whole
of it. U hile there was a dearth of underwear,
print dresses and good, warm wraps, a poor,
old silk skirt, bought of some former mis
tress, made an important item of her outfit
As the days passed, revealing more fully
her utter destitution, my heart sank within
me, for 1 read in it uot poverty so much as
shiftlessuess. Then came the reflection:
“Bessie is not responsible for all of thisl

after another ; brief seasons of wage earning
alternating with dependence on friends as
poor as herself, the thin, blasted ears of idle
ness ever devouring the full ears of her
plenty I saw tier the mistress of some poor
but, and surrounded by a rapidly multiplying
group of little Bessies, who would be sent
forth later, unkempt and untutored, to be
the disgust and despair of another generation
of housekeepers. And then/ Well, the pic

working. Why should that somebody not

siSter by» It seme j a little bit of missionary
work that the Lord bad set down within my
doors, and I believe be meant me to do it»
bo, doing as to the Lord and for one of
his little ones, and remembering that my
daughter might have been homeless and in
need of mothering, 1 began my work. There
was little difficulty in winning Bessie’s con
tidence sufficiently to make counsel as to her
wardrobe kindly received It was easy to
sug.Wst the need of new working gowns and
aprons when the suggestion took the form of
an offer of help as: “Bessie, if you like to
get you a new print dress, 1 will stitch the
seams for you." Moreover, she soon found
that that was not all, there sure to be help
ful hints as to cutting and planning. Then,
when she came to that bete noir, the button
holes, patient, repeated lessons helped her tc
fashion tidy slits, as unlike as possible the
ugly ellipses that had done duty in the past.
Sometimes, returning from “down town,"
1 would say: “Bessie, 1 saw such and such
goods of very, very pretty pattern, at low
prices, you would find this a good time to
buy." Often the res(>onse would be: “1
guess 1 will have some. Would you please
get it for me. you gee such pretty things."
And so the wardrobe grew, until, in addi
tion to the working gear and underwear,
there was a pretty jersey jacket, a heavy
cloak, a woolen shawl, and a well made black
cashmere dress. This latter was a source of
special pride as being “my Boston dress,” so
called txicau.se it was purchased at the Hub
by special commission. As possessions in
creased, so did her self respect. The poor
girl had evidently fancied that good and
abundant clothes were set ajiart tor an order
of beings quite remote from her, and with
whom she could not expect to have anything
Of course there were some drawbacks and
discouragements. Sometimes a lew dollars
would be expended foolishly for article« more
showy than pretty, durable or suitable, or
some uice. pretty garment would be worn
when about rough and dirty work, to the
great detriment of the garment and the dis
heartening of the mistress. Sometimes good
materials would be “witched" distressingly
Again, the seams would be long and numer
ous. and the button boles would need atten
tion when more pleasant occupations were
inviting pursuit. But there was a reward
and good cheer in seeing a tidy handmaiden
and in listening to the delighted exclamation:
“I didn’t think I could ever have anything
By and by. another way to partial release
for me, and self help for her, suggested itself.
This was neither more nor less than the pur
chase of a sewing machine. If you have

••Two skilled detectives agree in the
theory that the disease known as klep
tomania does not exist. ‘When a rich
woman steals fifty dollars worth of
goods she has kleptomania,’ said one
of them, ‘and when a poor woman
steals fifty cents’ worth of bread to
feed her starving children she is a
thief. Show me a pauper with a real
bad attack of kleptomania,’ and I will
believe that there is such a disease, for,
if there is. why should not the poor be
as susceptible to it as the rich? My
impression at present is that people
are born thieves, as they are born
musicians or singers—it is a gift,
though a deplorable one, and is ac
companied by great cunning and «agac-
ity. Another fact which disproves
tiie kleptomania theory is that never
in my experience of many years have
any goods been returned or paid for by
the friends of people afflicted with this
imaginary malady; it is only when dis
covered stealing that they and all their
friends call them kleptomaniacs. When
a woman comes in here and buys a
new bonnet and walks off bold with it
on her head without paying for it, or
takes a waterproof off a figure and puts
it on herself before us all. I know she
is a victim of mental aberration and
treat her accordingly. If, however,

How Woman Should Walk.
The best walker 1 ever saw was hopelessly
plain of feature—by inheritance—yet the
fioujourners in the mountain hotel where she
was passing the summer crowded to the win
dows to see her cross the lawn or go down
the road. Her skirts were of a modest length,
just clearing the instep. she wore stout boots
that were well fitted and trim; as Rhe trod,
she cast the whole weight of her body on the
ball of the foot, rising very slightly on the
toe. She held herself perfectly erect, yet not
stiffly, chest expanded, shoulders down and
back; her motion reminded one of the straight
flight of a bird, the right onward sweep of a
canoe—of all swift and graceful things—never
recalling the lounge, or slide, or hitching
bounce, or pigeon like perk, that go for walk
ing with the bevies of well dressed women
one meets every hour on street and road.
Watch the tide tumbling and bubbling
along the great thoroughfares of our cities
on a fine afternoon, if you would falsify and
confirm the assertion that not one woman in
a thousand uses her lower limbs well, or
cares to learn how to e.oploy them in any
exercise except dancing. Where one “strikes
out" freely and fearlessly, toe nine hundred

dough, which should be rolled thin, cut in

Where Caution la Needed.
“There is a great deal of carelessness now
adays in giving introductions,” said a society
leader to a reporter. “Formerly an intro
duction meant considerably more than it
now does. It was not given lightly and al
most as a matter of course to any applicant.
Of late the formality of introduction has
been much abused. There is no longer the
same caution and discrimination in the tnaL
“People will often unthinkingly Introduce
to their friends the merest casual acquaint
ances, of whose moral and social standing
they know absolutely nothing, forgetting that
by so doing they are pledging their own
honor for their conduct. It is of course prin
cipally owing to the easy and matter of
course fashion in which introductions aro
asked and obtained that adventurers and for
tune hunters are able to secure a footing in
good society so easily. If proper care were
taken to see that those seeking introductions
were what they professed to be, the opera

more difficult."—New York Mail and Express.
Onions for the Complexion.

to the girls who read The Household col
unins. ft is this, girls: If you wish a clear,
smooth skin, just eat onions.
My sister and I have as fine, fair skins as

pimples, boils or eruptions of any kind, and
this is largely due, our family physician says,
to the fact that from infancy we have bad
