For the Ladies. 1 DRESSMAKING AT I HOME, ("y CYLVIA.) I A NEAT OVERALL. I What oould be prettier and more use- ful that this overall illustrated below? I It is one that should please the workor who wants something a little out of the ordinary for her domestic duties or for the times when a little protection is needed. It is of the slip-on variety, which finds ready acceptance where such articles are concerned, and has a grace- ful method of fastening which should still further commend it to my readers. The materials from which it can be constructed are linan, of which there is any quantity to be had now that tho aeroplane stock is on the market:, whitst nurse's and casement cloth are excellent for the purpose. CHILD'S PETTICOAT OR FROCK. I Here is a pattern which should please I thrifty mothers, as a reference to the l «nuaUe,r cketoh will phow you that it can be used for a frock as well as a petticoat, and, worked out in striped plain materials makes quite a nice little jumper a long waisted affair. As to materials, these will depend upon the purpose of the garment. For a petti- coat cotton crepe and fine sponge cloth are to be recommended, as they wash easily and need no ironing—a great point for bnsy mothers to remember in these days of high prices and the servant and help difficulty..

LIFE'S HANDICAP. J Good Nerves Needed to Win the Race. I I Life its a rare. The mau with sound I nen"es and the full-blooded, bright-eyed woman invariably win. The nervous dys- peptic man a.nd the ailing anesmic woman are left behind. Success in life is largely a question of good nerves and health. It. is never the shaky, undecided men who are chosen for promotion; and the lean, pale woman is not sought after like her bgkppy rosy sisters. What makes the difference is the con- dition of the blood. If your Hood is thin and poor. your nerves axe bound to suffer, because they have to depend upon good red blood for nourishment. Headaches, poor appetite, undecided will, a shrunken figure, and pa-io, unattractive face tell tbe story only too plainly that the blood is at fault. Botrti men snd women in great. numbara hare found deliverance from their in- feriority in life's race, caused by im. poveriehed blood, in Dr. Willia,ns' pink pilLs for pale peoplo. They.are a remedy that has been a. household word for a generation, because they tone up the whole system, make the blood ridi and red, and strengthen the nerves. The great value of this treatment in made evident in the case erf 1hs A. Kirby, living at 27, Binsteed Road, Bu,&- land, Portsmouth. H I have been troubled with anaemia and nervousness all my married life, but especially after my last baby was born. From then I seemed unable to piok up Doctors attended me, but I did n-Jt improve in health. U Last autumn a neighbour was nearly Imooked down in the street with my baby in her arms. The shock upset me a good deal, and the day after I collapsed wihile out shopping, and bad to be MSisted home. For three .months I was treated at the hospital. They forbade me to eat meat or take stimulants., I could not en- joy my --Is, and soon became terribly thin. Pains in the head were frequent, and these oausrd Hleepleseneas and depression. The pains seemed to affect my back and spine also. These attocks occurred two or three times a week. All power seemed to leave my limbs, and I could not steradr myself. I first heard of Dr. Williams' pink pil,x through a neighbour who had re- ceived greo.t benefit from them. I sup- pose I too! thre9 boxes before I really noticed the good they were doing me. Then the ehang-e in me was apparent. My refit gradually became less broken, and I slep* soundly. The sen-stttiona ctf giddiness dis- appeared as I persevered with the pills, aud I gained mere confidence in myself. I have always been nervous, but am now greatly improved in every way." You, too, can improve your health and spirits by beginning Dr. Williains' pink pills now. Go to any dealer for a supply, but ask for Dr. Wiliiams'j. and avoid sub- stitutes. FREE.

WALES BEATEN. I HP Two Points Down in Bowls Match With England. Wales op-posed England at Oarlisuo cn Wednesday on an indifferent jrreen, the surface being very bumpy and not con- ducive to good bowling. Tfce dfaw brought' together Shatford (Kettering) and Parfitt, Envmerson (Carlisle) and Sutherland, Curtis (Southend) and Jones (Splott), I-TTiue Watson and Tom David, while John Pollock clashed with the ffreat Willie Hamilton, of Newxsastle. On t-he fifth end Wales were down fif- teen shots, the scpre reading—England 29. Wales 14. AVales made a, good spurt at this stage. On the sixth end throe rinks recovered twelve shcte and reduced the leenray. At I the tenth end Wales were only five shots down and were going well.. David and Sutherland, who had failed to sore in the first five ends, were picking up grandly, and the Englishmen were by no means having it all their own way. At the fifteenth end Wale3 get in front and led by three shots, 68--65. It nOw became a strenuous fight, with the Welsh- men contesting every point. Pollock fiyi&h^d 7 up, Jonss 17 all, and Sutherland 6 down. WHh two ends to go on the two remain- ing rinks Wales 'ere 1 up on the aggre- gate. Parfitt finished 4 up, 'find Wales were thus equal with England, all de- pending on David's lat end. England won by two shots, however, ns David finished 8 down. Wales were extremely unlucky to loee by two ehots. Their failure to get the grip of the gresn at the start was largely responsible for their defeat. Parfitt got set well, and his rrnk always had the measure ot their opponents. Billy Jones, the new international, tos sure and fteody. ably backed up by Ivor Thomas ard Davies.
