WHAT THE QUEEN NEVER DOES. I A story is told which shows how yery pleasant are the relations ex isting between the Queen and her maids of honor. It once happened that one jf them arrived at Wind sor Castle without her luggage, and quietly informed her Majesty of the fact, says Home Notes. Instead of remarking . on her carelessness, the Queen, merely said: "My dear child, how did you manage it? I never lose mine." HQME CLEANER GLOVES TOO ODOROIJ5. . "Jhis has been a hite glove as iseriDbly," sniffed a woman to her hos tess at the end of an afternoon miisi oale. The air was filled with the. odors of benzine, gasoline, and other liquids. used in the home cleaning of - gloves. There is money for, the in ventor cf an inoffensive glore cleaner, for : women . will continue to clean their own hand--coverings to the end of time. The use of long -white gloves has made the cost of renovation go up, and it means a saving to perform ithe operation oneself. PEACH BLOSSOM TAFFETA.

This ex quisite little coat is finished with a collar of pale leaf green velvet, bor dered with. three frills of Valenciennes lace. "DON'T WEAR RINGS. Girls whose hands are not yet fully grown, and formed that is, generally speaking, girls up to eighteen should not wear rings. Many a taper finger has had its shape spoiled by a ring3 which became so gradually, tight that the wearer did not notice it until tae mischief was done. Pianists or per 'sons who play any instrument seldom' 'wear rings. They' think that the weight of "the ring lessens the muscu- ' lar strength of the finger. If a girl thinks she must wear rings, then let her at least take them off each night and rub for a moment the- part of the finger that has been covered by them. This restores circulation and helps the finger to attain its normal ' growth. Philadelphia Inquirer. HIGH COMBS IN VOGUE AGAIN. High combs are inevitable since the Paris autocrat have decreed the return of the Directoire styles. Even women whose rotund figures make the fashion ridiculous, as far as they are concerned, are showing signs of bowing to the command. Directoire it is to be, and already the hair is being piled" up.-. High combs are be ing unearthed. In the street they give the necessary tilt to the small and lopsided-looking hats. Some of the new Directoire combs have Egyp tian symbols, and some women have the idea carried out in ornaments on the hat and the belt buckle. One girl whose wedding-chimes will. min gle with "the Easter hallelujahs has a comb six inches ' high, ar-d a belt buckle of equal size. He loose,- half length coat has big bvtcons in which the pattern is reproduced. , , . STUART PERIOD REVIVED. Long ladders of ribbon botfs, re calling the kind of trimming still seen in portraits of the early Stuart period, each little bow finished with a silver tag, or possibly with a sil ver fringe or a silver tassel, may be seen just now on some of the new est dinner gowns, made either in chiffon velvet or in some of those soft rich satins which, it U very good news to hear, are many of them of English manufacture. Op a wedding gown of ivory white satin, to be worn later on as a dinner dress,, these soft satin bows, are very much in evi- denco,' carried cut in. the same satin as the .gowb. finished with silver tas sels, and bcnunuscl in an unbroken line from jthc dee;) bertha collar of beautiful ybnetlaa. iace which out'---? the decollfetage, een down to the heavy silver cord, which borders witli so much dignity the hem of the skirt.

The reinarkable increase during the last few years-in the number of women employed in various branches of commercial life in Japan must be regarded as a very significant sign of the times. Not content with the occupations which have almost ex clusively ! belonged to females, they have new' invaded those field's which have hitherto heen considered as be longing tb the male sex. Ihe ex periment made in the employrient of women as clerks and bookkeepers has been j found satisfactory, And we now find I girls employed by many of the firms and stores in Toliio and other large cities. The, employment of women in these various directions will do much toward emancipating the Japanese women, who have until now been entirely dependent on -men for the shaping of . their destinies, n is only natural, under such circum stances, tihat female education should engage serious public attention. The number of girls receiving a school education, it is stated, is now more than eight times the number of those at school -ten years ago. More re markable are the figures given by the Tokio ' Educational Society. Fifteen years ago the percentage of females admitted! to the training school for teachers j was less than twenty, as compared witltthe men, but to-day the rate has been, completely re versed, the number of male appli cants being now about 15 per cent, of the total.' It is said that women, as teachers, are proving themselves superior j to men, and that there is consequently more' demand for the former than the. latter. There is no doubt that the employment of wo men in the various branches of busi ness activity will steadily increase with the advance of education among them. Japan Chronicle.

And it's hard to think one could Be so great, you know, And then not be .able to, Because one has to grow. DUCK-ON-A-ROCK AND EMPEROR. Duck-on-a-rock is -an old game, but for generation after generation it holds its place in the hearts of the boys who know how to play it. Here it is now for all of you, and girls may become really quite expert at 'throwing straight," if they will try to play the game, too. A large stone with a smooth top is chosen for the rock, and each player is provided with a stone of . the right size to be easily held in that hand. These are the ducks. Draw a line twenty-five to thirty feet distant from the -rock, according to the size of the field played in, and back of this line is " home." The next step in the game is to " pink for duck," which consists in each play er's throwing his stone from "home" to the rock.. . The one whose stone lies farthest from the rock, when all have thrown, is " It," and must place his stone on' the rock for the others to throw at, their object being to knock it off. He must stand near the rock. If any player knocks the stone from the rock, there must instantly be a general stampede for " home." The player who is " It " must quickly re place the stone on the rock, and when he has done so must try to tpuch any player who has not. yet reached " heme." The one so touched becomes " It " and must place his ' duck " on the rock to be thrown at, standing near by himself. Sometimes, if a player touched by " It " is a fleet runner, he may be able to place his duck on the rock and run back and touch the former " It " before he has had a chance to get his stone and run "home;" in that case, the. fleet runner wins his release, and the former "It" must again place his duck on the rock. If no stone dislodges the duck In one round of play, their owners for feit them to "It," and terms must be made with him to recover them. He may command one to " jump " home, which he must do with the stone be tween his feet, and hop home thus burdened. Another he may command to " kick," which is done by working the stone onto the foot and kicking it homeward. Or he may command, one to "heel," which means to kick the stone home backwards, with the heel. While these forfeits are being paid no one else may go "home," and the first one who fails in fulfilling th-j penalty and getting his duck home, becomes "It." Emperor is a game that is played in much the same way as Duck-on-a-Rock, only the emperor is a wooden figure placed on a post about eighteen inches in height. A player called the Prime Minister stands near it, and the others, each with a ball like 'a croquet ball, try in turn to knock off the Emperor. The rules in Duck-on-a-Rcck hoM good in this game, all players run ning home when the Emperor is dis placed, and the Prime Minister be ing compelled to replace him before he runs to touch another and make him Prime Minister. A time limit might be fixed for this game, and the one who has displaced the Emperor the greatest number of times, or the one who has been Prime Minister the least times, may be the visitor, ac cording to agreement. New York Press. LIVE OYSTERS IN THE' HOUSE. Years ago a family lived on a farm in a little country town, where there was no railroad, and the nearest city was a number of miles distant. The father was very fond of oysters, -"and how do ycu suppose he managed to have some always "at hand?" He would drive to the nearest city, buy a bushel of "real live" ones, and bring " them heme with him. They were then carefully placed in .rows along the cellar floor, where it was rather dark and cool, and a -little damp. The most interesting part, however, was to keep them alive. Every little while some one would go " down cellar " and feed them by sprinkling them with meal and water. One of the little girls in the family, who is now grown up, says she can remember how the oysters closed their- shells with a snap after they were fed; but perhaps that was only in her imagination. Anyway, if they happened to be forgotten for a time, they would be found patiently wait ing with their shells open, ready to receive their next meal. By the way, nearly all of us have heard thp sav- ing that oysters are good to eat only DEPARTMENT: during the winter months which hav an R in their name, but who knows when that idea first originated? It was mentioned in. a book called " Dy et's Dry Dinner," printed in 1599. We are not so very much brighter than j our ancestors, after all, are we? "I'LL TAY YOU FOR THAT." This little parable by an unknown author teaches its own lesson: A hen trod on a ducks foot. She did not mean to do it, and it did not hurt the duck much, but the duck said, "I'll pay you for that!" So the duck flew at the old heu, but as she did so her wings struck an old goose, who stood close by. "I'll pay you for that!" cried the goose, and she flew at the duck, but as she did so her foot tore the fur of a cat, who was just then in the yard. "I'll pay you for that!" cried the cat, and she started for the goose, tut as she did so her claw caught in the wool of a sheep. "I'll pay you for that!" cried the sheep, and she ran at the cat, but as she did so her foot hit the foot of a dog who lay in the sun. "I'll pay you for that!" cried he. and jumped at the sheep, but as he did so his leg struck an old cow who stood by the gate. "I'll pay you for that!" cried she, and she ran at the dog, but as she did so her horn grazed the skin of a horse who stood by a tree. . "I'll pay you for that!" cried he, and he rushed at the cow. What a noise there was! The horse flew at the cow, and the cow at the dog, and the dog at 'the sheep, and the sheep at the cat. and the cat at the goose, and the goose at the duck, and the duck at the hen. What a fuss there was! And all because the hen ac cidentally stepped on the duck's toes.- "Hi! Hi! What's all this?" cried the man who had the care of them. "You may stay here," he said to the hen, but he drove the duck to the pond, the goose to the field, the cat to the barn, the sheep to. her fold, the dog to the house, the cow to her yard, and the horse to his stall. And so all their good timeswere over because the duck would not overlook a little hurt which was not intended. THE FACE OF AN ENGINE. A writer in the London Saturday Re.view comments upon the fact that a railway engine has a face and that the face has an expression. "Look at an engine," says the writer, "and you can see that one looks noble simply noble in its strength; another, gigantic in force, but not noble an expression of mere hrute strength. Some engines have a lofty, almost supercilious, ' expression; others al most foolish. Some have an air of smug stoutness. Then there are en gines that distinctly look angry and others comparatively gentle. What is the key to this physiognomy? Where is the seat of expression? On the whole, it seems to be the funnel."

The Arabic day begins at sunset, and the particular one which begins any month is that on which the new moon is first seen after sunset. Apart from the cloudiness of the sky, there may be and generally, is considerable difficulty in seeing the crescent, lost as it must always .be in the,, radiance of the set sun, and consequently there is always uncertainty for some time after sunset whether the day that has just begun is to be reckoned with the last month or as the first of a new month. Arts cf the London Beggar. Owen Seaman, the new editor of London Punch, has studied all sorts of odd things. Among others he has devoted much attention to . the profes sional beggar, for which ingenuity he has immense admiration. He tells of a woman -beggar, who; with her 7-year-old girl, was admitted to the home of an English aristocrat. As the two waited in the hall the mother was hwd to say: "Wfaat will yousay when yo come into the drawmg-rponi where the Countess is?" The child, smiling, whispered in reply:' "I know. I'll put on a beautiful, lost look and bu'st out: "Oh, mother, is tWs heaven?" Sheep from Iceland are on exhibition in England. They stand fourteen inches. " BOV'SyTERRlBI ECZEMA.
