the proportion of men to women indoor servants is as one to three or four in France the reverse is the case parlor maids being unknown the one femme de cham bre being ladys maid as well as housemaid The houseworksweep- inn dusting tcmainl falls upon the men servants One element entailing much extra work for servants in England is absent in a French house This is the staying guest the succession of visi tors Outside private hotels and in the handsome flats of fashionable quarters there is indeed no room in Parisian households for friends The words dine and sleep or week end visits have not found their way into French dictionaries nor have dine and sleep weekend guests yet become French institutions- It is easy thus to understand why three or four servants suffice in France while in England a dozen would be needed for people of simi lar means and position and where three or four maids are kept in Eng land only a general servant is kept in France Home Life in France PROPHECIES OF

offer such suggestions from time to time as may occur to mey which would add t t the usefulness or attractiveness of your paper I wish to call your att iitioqto and commend a single feature of J the SunSentinel which s published in your office Bach week the SunSentinel has from four to a dozen cuts illustrat aig some practicable idea which adds to the donvemence attractiveness amusement pleasure and value of the housej yard garden or barn No issue has appealed to me more on this point than last Thursdays issuer rtpontained six illustrations each undowithoutable The first was a life size cut of the Stinkplant which is a nonindig iuous growth and the article says the best seeds are imported This plant has a disagreeable odor nothing will cat it and it is not a legume The piesumption is that the pleasure de rived from its cultivation is the in creased pleasure you will have in getting rid of it In a foot note he explains that by cutting in the dark moon in August burning and throw ing the ashes in a horse pond for twelve successive years it can practically be eradicated This is cer tainly vorth a trial Another cut is of an Anemometer This instrument can be made at home in a few weeks by any member of the family whp has a taste for mechanics It cafr7 be made of parts bf umbrellas hat rack an ink stand ami the four halves of two whole cocoanut shells see cut When properly made and coupled up it will rotate in proportion io the velocity of the wind Furthermore you can tell whether or not the wind is blowing When going round the vihd is blowing when standing still it4 not provided there is nothing the matter with the machine Again he states in substance when it is rsyoluting 540 times a minute the j4j blowing fasterthan when it turns less number of times but should the cocoanut shells on the point of the winding blades exceed a spc Sd limit of 27000 revolutions a minute7and the roofs on houses chimney fops and church steeples becoming in your direction from wind ward it indicates a strong wind Oneof the catchiest illustrations- is the one showing how a door can be cut in some unused part of the wall of the house and closed up by carpenters plasterers wallpaper hangers and afterward so hid by drapery or a piece of furniture that no one will ever notice that it was ever cut This can be cut and every semblance of it concealed at a cost of not exceeding sixty dollars The cutest thing is an attachment for the front door The cut shows how with lid ofan electrician you can by connecting some wires with the electric door bell shock every person who comes about the house It isvery simple You attach a wire to the battery of the bell run it over and tie around the door knob then into a basin containing water and wind around some table cutlery then turn the door knob at your peril No man who has any regard for the pleasure of his family will be without one of these attachments It will amuse the children to see the old man when he forgets to coine1 around the back way or the visitors trying to let loose the door knob Another feature is a doublecolumn- cut of a icBnll pen estimated to cost about fifteen hundred dollars Theprincipal claim for this is that you cant well get at the bulland that he cant get at you one of the com forts in owning a bull is that he cantget at you You can build this at odd times and there is no telling when youmay buy or inherit a bull Our relations with Mexico are get ting closer and closer and in the event you had a visitor from our sister republic you would haye only to open the door of the bull pen and let him amuse himself For the garden he has a design that is entitled An evener that evens Its purpqse it to hitch four horses to one plow Probably there never was such an assemblage of single trees double trees tripple trees divices7bolts chainsJas I hackborrowed from the neighbors I was so taken with the convenience Qf the arrangement that the attachment was completed before it occur red to me that I had but one horse and neither plow or garden The last cut showed the French prQcessiid apparatus for dkitill mg alcohol This prlblythein- ostusefuLand practiokisuggtw of the half dozen Jt would not pos sibly cost more than ten thousand dollars afteihe subcellar is dug ft is best to put it in subcellar ap proached by a trap door in the floor as the RevenueAgents are on the look out for them But the cost and the danger are more than compensated for by the convenience of having one under the house for instance your wife has sent invitations for a chafing dish party you immediately start the still and bv tile time the guests arrive you have the alcohol to cook things which no one will eat Then she tells you some morning that the camphor bottle needs filling you simply place a sentinel to wateh for Revenue Agents while you start the still How much easier and cheaper than to go to a drug st9re and give up your quarter for acommodity you can make yourself j saving both cost and taxes I speak from experience having adopted his Suggestion until everything about the place is full and have an option on an adjoining lot to take immediate advantage of future point ers In the

I saw one of the men raise a sixshooter to aim at the defiant figure that faced them I gave a spring and with one blow laid the man on the floor There was a flash of fire as he fell and a deafening

The Story of a Man Who Wa Stung THE LATEST IN SUIT CASES New Turban Hat That Plays Hide and Seek With Ones FaceHow Is Worn Nasology the Newest Fag of Society My Dear ElsaI must tell you abou Dicks latest fiasco Its just lovely You know that tremendously stun ning friend of histhe Wall stree man who gives him straight tips and sure things on the market Well last week he put him wise OP somethingI dont remember exactl what but a thing that went up anu up and made Dick feel very toppy and Mabel myself see visions of n pointed fox set of furs supposed to he out of reach this winter By some occult means Dick sensed that a suit case would exactly squaw things between the Wall street sage 07 BLACK OTTOMAN SILK and himself So the other day these two dabblers in stocks hied them selves to a Broadway leather shop which after purveyng to the kings of England graciously lets America have some of the leftovers at greatly advanced prices It was crass Idiocy of Dick to turn a man with the right idea of appointments loose In this shopBut its not up to me to reason why You know what happened Of course you do dear Mr W quite by chance picked up the latest and most expensive suit case in the place com monplace enough looking on the out sidethe usual pigskinbut vanity of vanities a traveling dressing table in side Not content with the ordinary bestowal of toilet articles In a strap ped row all about the inside of the case this addition de luxe had the latest fitting wrinkle a leather easel on which were hung all the bottles brushes manicure tools etc one never has time to use onahur ried suit case trip What advantage is the easel First to quote the shop manI dropped in yesterday to see Dicks financial Waterloo the weight is evenly Distributed in the bottom of the case and the easel can be lifted out at the end of the Journey and set up on the dressing table Dick is a dead game sport so seeing his finish he was determined to die smiling and suggested that a solid sil ver traveling clock be added to the sterling military brushes oval mirror and other appointments His courage mounting with the occasion he or dered a case for neckties to be fitted In one corner of the case and would you believe it a silver Jewelry boy was anchored on the other side Oh yes and that nervy man objected to the razor that came with the set and had an extra safety one that costs 5 put in At this stage of the game Dick began to realize that he was be- Ing made a too easy mark so with that suavely sarcastic wholly devilish manner he can assume upon occasions he turned to his grafter and said Of course you want your crest on all these silver things He never thought the creature owned such a piece of brica brac and was positively floored when he heard him say Oh yes certainly Ill bring

should go with the case which TURBAN OF DARK TUB piece of pleasantry did not meet with enthusiastic applause But some day soon when Dick gets over the aching void in his pocketbook Im going to refresh his memory about old Phil Armour the Chicago packer who one flay being in a generous mood called his head clerk and told him to have all the men in his immediate office go to a certain clothing firm and be meas ured for suits at his expense One man thought he would make hay while cue sun shone and needing a dress suit he was measured for an expen sive one When the bills were sent to Mr Armour he noticed this one ninety dollar evening suit and rang for the man who had ordered it When he appeared he was shown the bill Yes sir thats all right much obliged to you The pork king looked him over and said Young man in my day I have killed a number of pigs but this is the first one Ive dressed Now having eased my mind I am going to give you a tip on the turbans of the moment There is a sudden change in the aspect of Fifth avenue Gone is the uninterrupted procession of hats thirtyeight inches in circum ference the kind disagreeable old la dies sigh over and hint at as being only another sign of degeneracy in the young No the appearance of the 5 oclock dress parade has changed as far as millinery is concerned in the turbanslmyyears once the idea from your economical mind that you can bring out some beautiful shapes that you looked charming in the last time small hats were in fash ion for you cant Todky yards and yards of material velvet fur swans down meluslne hairy clothare

eyes covering all the puffs and curls you have worn yourself to a frazzle adjusting and Itl Is pulled down low at the back at the sides even In front leaving nothing but face ears and the top of the collar visible According to the material you choose will you look like n Mongol or an Armenian but strangely enough most of the girls are fetch lug in these turbans I have always felt like a polar bear in that white fox neck piece of mine although the muff Is the pride of my life with its grew some head and realistic paws but now the difficulty is solved and Im going to resemble a drum major instead in the turban I have had made of thE boa Tw1s turban and muff will be- perfectly stunning with my new gown of London smoke There are just heaps of other things I wanted to tell you but I am due at the nasologlsts Everybody is having her fortune told you know by a Frenchwoman who reads what is in store for you from the shape lumps and marks on your nose I have al ways supposed that this
