OF INTEREST TO WOMENK1ND HEARTY EATI GOOD HUSBAND Dorothy Dix Says He is the Best Provider and Entertainer. "TAKES WIFE OUT OF THE DOLEFUL DUMPS" Dorothy Dix, advising girls how to choose ? husband, enumerates certain qualities she should look for as if a girl in love ever paused to consider a. man's qualifications for the position! Dorothy recommends considering; health as a major requisite, because most domestic unpleasantness is the result of dyspepsia and nerves. A man who can eat three square meals a day is apt to be optimistic and takes views of life that are broad and sane. The man who is fond of good eating eating is generally a g'ood provider. He's the man, too, who knows how to get a wife out of the doleful dumps; he takes her to a good show and to supper afterward. Moreover, remarks Dorothy, "the woman whose husband is fond of the pleasures of the table lias always always a lever by which to work him, and a hold on him that will never fail as long as she is willing to juggle juggle with the gas range. Beauty fades, youth (lees, witii becomes stale after a time, but a good dinner is always a thing to conjure with." Congeniality is better as a basis for matrimony than romantic affection, affection, which lasts a mighty little while. "Then, if a man and woman haven't got a reserve fund of the same kind of likes and dislikes to fall back upon, they go bankrupt. "But if they are congenial, if they are interested in reading the same books, seeing the same plays, playing playing golf, or bridge, or automotiiling, or piling up a fortune, or anything where they can meet on common ground and spend hours together without yawning, they are safe. "So,, in picking out a husband, watch out to see if the man who asks you to be his wife actually lets you into his real thoughts and plans, and treats you as a good fellow and comrade. Also observe If you take any interest in his con versation the minute he switches off telling you how beautiful, and angelic, and wonderful you are and how ho adores you. Dress, too, is named as an index of desirability. Dorothy says that "the man who dresses too well for his means is vain and extravagant, and his wife will have to so shabby that he may patronize expensive tailors. The one wno aresses too poor for his income is either stingy, in which case he would ex pect his wife to wear $3.95 millinery, millinery, or else he lacks a perception of the value of things, and would never rise above his present posi tion. As for . the man whose linen Is passe and his ties wrinkled strings, he neeus only me lei down of a Tfttle bad luck to degenerate into a barroom loafer. The Art of Entertaining.

ERADICATION OF DANDRUFF. Cannes and Cures for a Common and an Unpleasant Tronbte. Dandruff, which some writers have not inaptly termed "itch dirt," must always exist in every head, for It is the scaling off of dead cuticle When the formation is excessive there is some unhealthy reason for it. according to Elizabeth Anstruth- Anstruth- A TRIUMPH IN What with our steam heated houses and apartments which make practically summer time of winter weather within doors, many there be who make the negligee of the summer do duty for winter wear as well. Such Is the effect of the charming imported Parisian morning morning gown that forms the subject of the picture. This is veritably a triumph in handwork, since the whole of the fascinating thing is wrought by hand tucks, hems, appliques appliques and whippings of lace. One of those late inventions that combines combines a Princesse front and sides stimulates the oil glands to discharge discharge too freely, a tonic of witch hazel, two ounces; alcohol, two ounces; distilled water, one ounce, and resorcln, forty grains, will remove remove the superfluous grease. Advertised "dandruff cures" and hair tonics are to be avoided. The Transformation of a Mother. The means women resort to to conceal the ravages of time are many and varied, and among them is the use of false hair, dyes and the like. These attempted concealments concealments sometimes defeat their purpose. purpose. The San Francisco Chronicle mentions such a case as "something "something heartrending." The mother entered the shop with her daughter. Her face had the sweet gentleness of contented old age. Her rather scanty gray hair was brushed becomingly back from her low brow. The daughter stood by as the saleswoman attended to her work, eying her critically as if she were responsible for any mistake the girl might make. The shopwoman presently presently appeared bearing in her hands a mass of blackish gray hair much darker than that on the mother's head. This she placed over the mother's mother's locks and with a comb deftly mingled the pompadour and the real hair. "Xow, don't you like it?" she asked, stepping back from the chair and handing the mother a glass to gkve a side viev of the awful thing that had been piled up on her old brow. "I know you would say it looks perfectly natural." The mother turned helplessly to the daughter, who stood eying her with the same critical gaze that only a few minutes before had followed followed the girl's deft fingers. "Well. I think it's all rlsht. mother," mother," the daughter said. 'You know I always told you I thought vou looked too old with your hair back like that." The older woman threw a snfle at the saleswoman and looked a little pleased. She was evidently not very sure in her own mind, however, and cast dubious glances into the mirror. .She seemed to know that the transformation had not been for the better. The false hair stood stiffly on her head as if It bore no relation to her own coiffure. The falsity of the thirg fairly shrieked.

The high crown and small narrow brim is a fac-simile fac-simile fac-simile of the hat worn in the reign of Charles II., and the up-to-date up-to-date up-to-date up-to-date up-to-date yet simple trlmmlnff of draped chiffon and amaznn feather usually employed with this modei renders it extremely extremely chic. The large picturesque velvet hat known as "The Ttomney" will be worn for ceremonious occasions, the wide drooping brim on the left being being absolutely untrlmmed, while the long ostrich plumes and buckle catch up the right brim and fall gracefully to the shoulder. In ostrich plumes, the fashionable fashionable adornment for both large and small hats, one of the most beautiful beautiful novelties is shown. Quite the latest mode in Paris 'g to have the shaft or quill of the feather removed removed and the vane drawn together by a fine silk thread. The start of the plume is amassed to form ,a pompon, while the extremities droop and fall in loose clusters. This novel process of treating- treating- ostrich ostrich feathers is us beautiful as it is unique; and owing to the skilful workmanship required in these artistic artistic productions and their costliness, costliness, they will presumably be shown only In salons of the leading modistes.
