FOR WOMEN FOLK. r — ,• m > Womely Hints & Dainty i- Dishes. WITH PARS. INTERESTING TO THE MERE MAN. If sheets and tablecloths are wrung by patting the selvedge tnrough the wringer, the edges will not curl up and they will iron much eaaier. Warts may be cured by rubbing them three or four times a day with a potato. Cut off the end and rub the wart with the freshly eat part. A slice must be cut off the potato after each rubbing. Don't. it you are a girl, flirt with other firls' lovers at a dance, or sit out with them in secluded nooks; put yourself in that girl's place, and remember you would not like another to secure your lover's attentions. To remove rust from ateel rub the rusted article well with sweet oil. and allow the oil to remain upon it forty-eight hours. Then rub with a soft leather. Sprinkle with finely- powdered unslaked lime until the rust dis- appears. If your fat begins to froth when you are frying fish croquettes, or anything of the kind, you may know that the fat is not hot enough. Finish cooking what is already in the pan, and then re-heat the fat till a blue smoke rises from it before putting in any more. To Renovate a Brown Gladstone Bag. I Bab well with the inside of a banana-skin I and skim milk. Then polish with a soft duster. Methylated spirit will remove stains from brown leather. Rub it on with a, soft flannel, then polish. Kidney Cutlets I Cut some ox kidney into small pieces, and dust each with pepper, salt, and flour. Fry them in butter till of a light brown, and then turn them with the, gravy into a saucepan. Add a little stock, lemon-juice, chopped I parsley, and some small mushrooms. Let all aimmer for about fifteen minutes, and arrange on a hot dish in the centre of a border of mashed potatoes or a ring of baked potatoes. —" The Lady." Eggs and Tomatoes I Take six tomatoes, scoop out the centre of I each. and place in a well-buttered tin. Fill the hole in each tomato with an egg, taking care not to break the yolk. Cook in a I moderately hot oven until the egg is set. Serve very hot, sprinkled with finely-grated cheese. Character in the Hair I Women who are the possessors of fine, black hair are emotional and of very sensitive nerves. Coarse black hair is said to denote great energy, but an unenviable disposition. Women who have brown hair make the best wives, for they are almost invariably full of sentiment, impassioned, "high strung," loyal, and easily affected. Redhaired people are nearly always keen in business transactions, quick of perception, high-tempered and witty. The woman who has blonde hair is impulsive and loving, but usually fickle, although an agreeable companion. Persons with naturally eurly hair are said to be possessed of more lovable and sweet natures than those with wiry or straight capillary adornment. On most occasions the fact that we are looking our best is a wonder- ful incentive to good behaviour, and the woman with natural curls can discount her straight-haired sister many a time and oft. -1 Eggs In Cases I .Procure six fancy paper cases. Srusii over the ineides lightly with salad oil. Chop finely two teaspoonfuls of shallot or onion. Fry it a very pale brown, in a little drop of salad oil. When fried enough, drain off all oil, and put a little of the onion in the bottom of each case. Mix two tablespoonfuls of fresh white bread- crumbs with half a table-spoonful of chopped parsley, one tablespoonful of grated cheese and a dust of pepper and salt. Lay two teaspoonfuls of this mixture in each case, with a few tiny bits of butter on the top. Now very carefully break. separately, six Taw eggs into a small cup, then elide from the cup an egg into each case. Pour in enough good cream to cover the eggs. Put a good layer of grated cheese on the top, and bake in a moderate oven for about eight minutes. The tops must be a nice brown; if too pale, heat a salamander or shovel till red hot, and hold it over the top of them for a few seconds. Garnish the tops with little heaps of chopped parsley or olives. Serve very hot. On Washing the Hands I It is a very common practice amongst I cornea to wash the bands in water to which a little ammonia has been added. This is all very well if the supplementary processes are carried out, but the simple use of am- 3nonim in the water will make the hands rough and disagreeable almost beyond en- durance. Use the ammonia by all means, but do not forget that it is unfit for toilet use unless its effects are carefully removed by some suitable agent. As a cleanser it. is invaluable, but it is strongly aikalire, -destroying the natural oil on and near tile surface of the skin, causing roughness and a tendency to chap and wrinkle. After the use of any alkaline preparation —and remember that many soaps conta n alkali-the hands should be rinsed in clean soft water, dried with a soft towel, and rubbed with some soothing compound; glycerine and roeewater, almond-oil or diluted honey will do. This restores the softness of the akin and prevents chapping. When the finger-nails are dry and break asily, vaseline rubbed on after washing the aands will do a world of good.
