To Paris and its visitors from all the world the name of the Chateau d'Eau has long been familiar. But the superb project of Prof. Jau Zawiejski, archi- tect of that grand theater at Cracow; by which it is proposed to enhance the splendors of the intended Universal ex- hibition of 1900 surpasses most cher designs of decorative architecture con- trived for the mere spectacle of a mag- nificent festivity. It is to be con- structed of iron, and to be clothed with rushing water; indeed, the water is to form its inner walls, descending in vast sheets of unbroken liquid surface which are completely to inclose the halls and chambers of the interior, aud to form a majestic dom6 crowing the whole edifice. The total height will be 100 meters, rivaling the loftiest build- ings. This is divided horizontally into three stories, the solid framework of which exhibits different architectural ordersthe Tuscan, the Renaissance, and the ;Ionic styles, one above ths other. Visitors will have entrances quite free from danger of a wetting, and may ramble securely about thc pal- ace, take their seats in the theater as spectators of the Varieties.' cr avail themselves of the restaurant, or ride oz bicycles, or'oin the dane at a' bali.

Pretty Dress for Baby to %Vent on Ills "CoIiIpany Duy. For the youngest member of the family there is a pretty design in French nainsook, all made by hand, even to the tueks. The only trimming is hemstitching, which is used very free- ly. There is hemstitehing around the bottom of the skirt, hemstitching on the shoulder ruffle and the little rueh- ing around the hands and neck has also a very delicate hemstitching in its de- sign. One of the prettiest features in the little dress is the holly red rosette / t < l, FOR TIIE YOUNGEST GUEST. which catches down the ruffle on each ide of the front, thus reaieving the bite material. The little shoes and stockings are also of holly-colored silk, and a baby ribbon of holly is tied in double rows around the waist. If baby's m.'tmma wishes to make him very dressy she can make n pillow- ease of white nainsook edged with a hemstitched ruffle, at one end of which she can fasten a spray of holly with the berries upon it. MANAGING SERVANTS, o 'reach Them Self-Respect and Always Keep Your Own. The best rule for managing servants, in the opiniou of a writer in the Phila- delphia Ledger, is a two-fold one, sim- ple in idea, complex enongh, but still possible to practice: Teach your serv- ant self-respect and keep your own. For instance, a pleasant room to sleep in, a uiee kitche5 with plenty of serv- eeable cooking utensils, good brooms, ample towels and dusters, fixed duties and regular hours: these give and keep tip self-respect iu a williEg handmaid. be she cook or waitress. She learns to call your house her home, truly, and to take a pride in her work. On your side au even temper, a pleas- ant but firm oversight of necessary matters, a systematic plan of house- keepingall these keep up the mistress' eelf-rcspect in dealing with her house- hold staff. As soon as you feel thatyou Lave been cureless, or that you hnve lost your tOtal)or in a trying moment, ou realize that a false position ex- ists that endangers yonr self-respect- ing relation with )'our maid, just as she feels, when her room is wretahed, her lools ont of order, her hours of work irregular and her training neglected, that her st:mdard is confused and de- graded. The ideal mistress is ahvays self- respecting, and. having provided the essentials of self-respecting service, may reasonably expect the ideal maid to live np to the opportpnity. Ideals are perhaps never fully realized, but this espeeial ideal must be kept in view if improvement, however gradoal, in househohl serviee is desired. It ts easy to remember; try it. and see if it does not oil the wheels of your home ma- chinery. SCARLETINA STOCKS.

A woman of wonderful resources has just discovered a new and very sure way of renovating and restoring to their for- mer appearance spotted, soiled or fade cloth or serge gowns. Pick about 20 ivy leaves, young green ones by choice, wash them carefully and place them in a jug or basin Add about one pint Of boiling water, cover up the basin or jug, and leave to soak for two or three hours, when it will be ready for use. Meanwhile the gap sent must be thoroughly brushed in- side and oat, and all untidy braid or lining removed from the bottom. When ready, spread it on the table, and care- fully sponge with ivy water. It must then be hung out to dry, when it will be found to have recovered its former color and to look quite like new. Black silk may be cleaned in the same manner, but it needs more care. If the silk is in breadths it must be lightly sponged and then tightly rolled over a cloth wound round a roller and left to dry. Black lace may also be renovated when soiled or brown with age by sponging with ivy water, and then roll- ing over a cloth wound round a roller. It should not be ironed. . Mix equal quantities of soft soap and powdered starch with half the quanti- ty of salt; make into a paste with lemon juice. Lay this paste on each side of the mildew stains and let the article lie out on the grass night and day till the stains disappear. Soaking the clothes stained in buttermilk for a con- siderable time, then washing them in the usual manner, and finally leaving them to bleach all night on the grass, is an old-fashioned country method, which is effectual. Another is to make a paste of table salt and lemon juice, and lay this thickly on the spots, which should have been previously wetted and soaped; the linen so treated being left in the open air to bleach for several hours at least. The best element In any of these treatments is-the night's bleach. In towns, where this is impracticable, the best thing is to make a solution of equal parts of chloride of lime and common soda in boiling water  half pound each of hhe lime and soda to three quarts of water : dip the stains into this for a few seconds till they disappear, then rinse the article in boiling soap- suds and send to the wash as umml.

The scrubbing-brush treatment is a cure for those blackheads which are the bane of a woman's life. Be sure you get a good face brush. Purchase a cake of pure hygienic soap. The brush should be used at night before going to bed. Immerse the brush in hot wa- ter. Rub the soap over it until a good lather la obtained. Scrub the face carefullynot violently, but thor- 'oughly. One minute should suffice for the scrubbing process. Rinse with warm water and again with cooler wa. ter. Dry with a soft towel. If the skin is irritated by the unusual friction try a good cream or other emollient. The greasy look will disappear under the face-scrubbing brush also.Chicago Tribune. Latet Jewelry Is Flex/hie.

The record of the remedy is without a rival, a record that is written in the blood of thousands, purified by its healing power. "I nursed a lady who was suffering from blood poisoning and must have contracted the discuss from her ; for I had four large sore% or ulcers, break out on my person. I do-:tored for a long time, both by external application and with various blood medicines ; hut in spite of all that I could do, the sores would not heal. At last I purchased six bottles of Ayer'a Sarsaparilla, thinking I would give it a thorough trial Before tha six bottles had been taken, the ulcers were healed, the skin sound and atural, and my health better than it had been for years.
