PACTS AND FANCIES. EDIBLE SEAWEEDS. There are at least two seaweeds common on our shore that are good to eat. The first is the Irish moss, or carrageen. It is a red weed, though occasionally tinged with green, and may be known by its forked and fan- shaped fronds, slightly resembling the antlers of a deer. It is found in deep, sheltered pools, and when boited yields a colourless jelly, which doctors often prescribe for invalids. The other edible seaweed is the dulse, or dillisk, commonest on the Scotch and Irish coasts, but also found on English shores. It is a red, membraneous weed, with broad, fleshy fronds, from which project lobes, or fingers." Dulse is a staple article of diet with many of the Scottish and Irish fisherfolk. There is, of course, seakale, the sprouts of which, cooked after the manner of celery, make an excellent dish. Seakale, however, is not a seaweed, but a perennial plant growing on the seashores. n THE BLARNEY STONE. Visitors to Southern Ireland should on no account miss the Blarney Stone. As the train from the North approaches Cork, the tower, which is practically all that is left of Blarney Castle, may plainly be seen, and the magic triangular stone is situated near the top of this tower. The tradition is that all who kiss the stone will be endowed with the power to "blar- ney," or to humbug with wheedling talk, so as to gain a desired end. Again, they will have exceptional facility in the art of flattery and compliment. The gaining of this wonder- ful power sounds very easy of attainment on first hearing of it, but ir reality the aspirant is faced with a physical difficulty. To reach the stone one must be held by the heels and lowered face downwards till one's face reaches the kissing level-no easy task by any means. The legend dates from the time of Queen Elizabeth, when the Lord of Blarney very effectively made empty promises of surrender and plausible excuses.
NOSE-RUBBING. Maori women of New Zealand know nothing about kissing. Nose-rubbing is their form of salutation, *and when two friends meet they hold each other by the hand, bend their heads until their noses touch, and then rub them gently from side to side. This form of greet- ing is not confined to the women, but is prac- tised by the men; they seldom meet without rubbing noses. In times of lamentation the Maori "women will sit for hours with their noses touching and moan for the loss of some chief whom they have in all probability never seen.
WHEN A PRINCE PAWNED HIS WATCH. King Edward VII., when Prince of Wales, was once compelled to pawn his watch. That took place, however, not in England, but in France, and, of all places in the world, at Sedan. It was about a vefir after the war, and the Prince, in the strictest incognito, was visiting the battlefields,. being anxious, at all costs, to avoid recognition, so as not to wound French susceptibilities. He found himself financially stranded at Sedan with insufficient money either to pay his hotel bill or his rail- way fare back to Frankfort. It was impos- sible to rely on the discretion of the hotel- keeper, or even to telegraph for funds, since that would have revealed the Prince's identity. At length, in sheer desperation, the Prince sent his equerry, Colonel Teesdale, to the locnl m.ont-de-piete with his watch, that of Teesdale, and that of his valet, and waited with some trepidation the success of the colonel's mission, since there is an immense amount of formality to £:0 through when pledging personal property in France.

DRESSMAKING AT HOME. BY SYLVIA. SUMMER SUIT FOR A SMALL GIRL. This little suit is intended to come to the help of the busy and thrifty mother, as it is not only easy to make, but is so designed that odd pieces can be used up in the making of the flop hat which so becomingly crowns the whole, a'nd is just the thing for baby-wear. To Place and Cut Out. The frock, which is cut Raglan-wise, and all in one, has no opening but that in front, so the centre of both back and front must be placed to the fold. If the material be double- width, the most economical way will be to fold over each half-width to the centre, which will give two folded pieces, wide enough most probably to cut the back and front portions. Pattern No. 3,307. This ccol and comfy little summer suit is intended for a child four to six yea! s of age, and the pattern in- cludes knickers and hat. About lyd. of double-width striped goods and i yd. of plain ditto will be required. From the remaining piece you should be able to place and cut the knickers and sleeves by carefully considering, and placing the pattern to the best advantage, as well as first folding the material to enable this to be done. The folds for neck, sleeves, and lower edge of the frock-part (of the plain material) are cut on the cross, whilst the band is cut selvedge- ways of the material. The hat is obtained from the corner and other pieces left over. To Make Up. Having placed and pinned your pattern, trace it round carefully, and cut out, allow- ing good turnings. When ready, tack the sleeves in place as the notches indicate, then do likewise with the side seams, stitch up, neaten and press. Now join the strips of the fold, snip the selvedges, open and press them, then turn in and press the top edges of the skirt-fold, first measuring the length required, also for the sleeves, and then turn in evenly and press both edges of the part intended for the neck. Secure in place and finish off. The knickers are joined at the seams, neatened, and pressed, hemmed at the lower edge, where an elastic is run through, the waist-part being set into a band in which buttonholes are made for it to be buttoned on t-o the under-bodice. As to the hat, the sec- tions are stitched together, notched, opened, and pressed, the brim being of double mate- rial (if possible, corded at the extreme edge), and then trimmed as in the sketch. AN EASILY-MADE COSTUME. This pattern is intended for those who, find- ing the present prices of ready-mades pro- hibitive, have purchased a length of material which they intend making up themselves, and want a simple pattern for the purpose. To Place and Cut Out. The coat is cut with seams at the side of back and front, whilst the skirt is a three- piece affair, so is quite easy to make. The coat, of course, can be. cut as a sacque affair, if preferred, but the pattern selected if not Pattern No. 2,208. Here is a nice, neat, and simple pattern for an everyday costume which is just the thing for the home dressmaker. only the present fancy, but lends itself to eking out a short, or maybe odd, length very successfully, and this is one of my reasons fot its selection. os Place the centre front of the skirt to the' fold of the material, and the side edges of the gores to the relvedges, also those of the front of the coat. Those of the side portions of the coat must be placed the same way, but not necessarily to the selvedges. The sleeves must be placed" so that the lower or wrist-part is a wee bit on the bias. Ine collar must corre- spond with the front, the bands being cut sel .-edgeways of the fabric. The lining should he cut a trifie larflu than the material, as the latter is sure to stretch a bit if of a woollen I "eave.. Mark round or trace carefully, and then cut out, allowing good turnings. T,) Make Up. First of all tack and stitch together, the Bides and the corresponding portion of back aud front of coat, snip seams, open, and press. Next turn in and face front of coat, over a striu of French canvas: make 'the but- tonhole and sew on the button, then arrange and tack in the lining and fell to the coat at the seams, fronts, and lower edges, and then press well. Make the collar, which is double, and interlined with fine '"French canvas, secure to the neck of the .coat by the under e.bic-, snip turnings, fell the upper part over them, after which press veil-
