MUSHROOMS AND EGGS! Take several large mushrooms, and with a spoon scrape from the inside all the'pink fur ; chop it Binn.ll. Take the stalks and white outhide and boil in a pint of milt for one hour, then strain. Put the fur of tho mushroom into the milk, and cook gently for ten minutes ; thicken with flour into a sauee, and place four hard-bailed egg?, cut in halves, on a dish, edge upwards ; pour the sauce over. THE WARM CORNER is the welcome corner i n these draughty days of winter, when the Are glows warm and cheer-
ful. Hut this fire and its warmth draw the cold air into the room whenever a door is opened, and underneath the door all the time if the door does not fit tightly. A loose mat laid against the entry is pushed away every
.. time anyone comes in. It is better to tack a little strip of felt along the bottom of the door itself. A screen, again, does wonders in Keeping draughts out; and there is no more cheerful sight for an incomer than a comfortable armchair and a screen. THAT ARMCHAIR, however, should not slope too much in the back, or it becomes uncomfortable to read or work in. A WHITER TROUBLE that affects many of us is cold, chilly hands and feet. '1 hey come from defective circulation
and poverty of the blood. Poor blood is what the doctors call anasm ia, al- - a prevalent trouble . where women [are concerned. 'lt gives pallid cheeks, flat figure, languidness, and a way !of being easily tired. Very often it is the first step towards "decline," or, as people call it,
consumption. Better stop it in time. It is good to be rosy and well if you can. Here is a true story: Mis 3 Richardson, daughter of the of a large brickworks at King's Dyke, Whittlesey, in Cambridgeshire, is a picture of health. Yet a little while ago she was in a consumption. Doctors attended her, but the girl made no progress, and bpcame so weak that all quite expected her to <iie as i consumptive people do die. By the merest accident the father fouud out what can bs i done by I'r Williams's Pink Tills for Pale People, fie read it, and said to his wife: " Here's somebody advertising, and if only half what it says is true, there's hope for Jane I yet " The same night he sent for a box of Pills, and before half the box was gone saw a marked change. Mi3s Richardson is, in her father's words, " A woman again, and quite well." Her disease was a decline—consumption ; but there are no signs of that now. She was so weak that she could do nothing; it appeared as if she hadn't the strength to walk. But Dr Williams's Pills entirely cured her. Thi3 is an example for all women who feel languid, have a pain in the chest or the back, or feel the nevd of a tonic. DO'NOT MAKE A MISTAKE. Have the genuine Pills which cured Miss Richardson, as I have just told you. They are only to be had in a wooden tnbe or box in a closed pink wrapper, beariig the full name, "Dr Williams's Pink Pills for Pale People." In case of any doubt it is better to send to the makers (the address is Dr Williams's Medicine Company, Wellington, New Zea'and) than to accept any substitute, for these Pills are not like ordinary medicine. A PRETTY TIPPET AND MUFF. This is, as you see, a very stylish addition to a dress or cloth jacket—a tippet fashioned in velvet and trmmed with ostrich feather and chiffon kilting, and a fascmatiDg muff en mite. When the brighter weather allows of lighter and dantler toilettes this wiH be found useful.
