If the paper Is spotted, torn and faded nothing new or old will look well In the room, so you must repaper. Select ordinary cheesecloth' for sash cup tains and run them on little brass rods. If you are willing to spend n little more time on the curtains stencil somo attractive design or nppllque some cretonne flowers on the comers. A few necessary nttlcles for the dresser should be found, such as hair, pins, shoe buttoner and such small trifles, but comb, brush and hand mirror will cost a little more. If you can. not afford a half dozen extra quality guest towels the next best thing to do Is to take six from the general household number mid put them In the wash stand of the guest room. This will prevent their being used for rougher purposes mid prevent their getting stained, as many towels nru apt to do. Scrape up the furniture. Varnish, paint or polish It, ns the case may be.

HOW TO DROIL A STEAK. In an article on "The Appetizing Hecfsteak" In the Woman's Home Companion Is the following general advice about.steaks; The underlying principle 'which governs good broiling. Is this: One side of tho meat must be quickly soured. The meat must be turned and the other side' This prevents quickly seared. the escape of any of the Juices.

Is anything In tfic world that an elephant lores better than a peanut orange, A number of jenrs It Is an ago In n book which was called "Leaves From the Life of n Special Correspondent" ilr, O'Shen, the author of the book, gave the following descilp-tloof an adventure he had with a herd of elephants. Bald he; "A young friend "asked me onco to show him some elephants, nnd I took him along with mo. having first borrowed an apron und filled It with oranges. This he was while accompanying me in tho stable, but the moment we renche'l the door the herd had set up such a trumiietlng-th- ey scented the fruit that he dropped the apron nnd Its contents and scuttled off There were like a scarred rabbit. eight elephants, and when I picked up the oranges I found that I had twenty-five- . deliberately along the I walked line, giving one to each. When I got (o the extremity of the narrow stuble I turned und was nhout to begin the distribution again, when I suddenly reflected that If elephant No. 7 In Ihe row saw me give two oranges In succession to No. 8 he might Imagine that he was being cheated and give mp n smack nltli his trunk that Is wherb the fulls short of the human being-- so I went to the door and began at the beginning as before. Thrice I went along the line, and then I was In a fix. I had one orange left, nnd I had to get bad; to the door, livery elephant In the herd had his eye focused on that orange. It was as much ns my life was worth to give It to any one of them. What was I to do? I held It un conspicuously, coolly peeled It and ate It myself. It was most amusing to notice the way those elephants nudged each other and shook their ponderous sides. They thoroughly entered Into the humor, of tho thing." A Couch For Dolly. ltecord-Uerild- . : I Religious : By AUGUST M. CROSS was a clear, crisp morning when "Torpedo Jim" drove up to the house and waited for Annie to come out. The buggy was of a peculiar build, and a stranger would have wondered at the high springs and elevated box. Kven to one unfamiliar with tho sights of the oil regions there would have been carried Intuitively a suggestion of dread from the very appearance of the carriage, but to those who knew and appreciated the character of the torpedo business there was n feeling of pity mingled with admiration for the reckless "shooter" who traveled the rough mountainous roads dally with scores of quarts of nitroglycerin beneath him. When Jim, In high boots, blue flannel shirt nnd a soft hat with the wldo rim turned back, drove rapidly through tho town, people would stop and look carefully after him nnd then pass along about their business again with the satisfactory reflection that they could say at least that they had seen him "the day It happened." Annie camo down to the gate and there was n sad expression about her sweet, womanly face, and she was trying to be brave about It, but It was hard to keep the tears back, for the recollection of the talk with .11 in the night before and the realization of the long Journey away Into another conn-trand strange home about to tie was strong upon her. Jim was the first to speak, and his words came with unusual clearness. "I've been thinking It all over. Annie." he said, looking down nt the twitching face, "and I know you were right. You were all right from first to last, and I'm nil wrong. And I'm glad you're going away away from these talking people, who seem to have no mercy lu their hearts for a fellow who's done wrong, even If he does try tcWlive It down, nnd I have tried. Annie, tiled so hard. Hut you know all iibout that. It's an old story. "And then this business" - he made a careless gesture toward the carriage--"yocouldn't stand that, and I don't blame you. livery ono would be telling you that I would lie killed, and all that, until you'd get all nervous and worried, though 1 don't see what alls people anyhow. It's not their business." There was a long silence. Plainly Jim had something else to say. "Annie" he reached down anil look her hand In a farewell grasp- - "If you IT should meet, away out there In California, a fellow with a different name from mine, who loved you as I do, who was leading n stralght-ulife, and not In tho glycerin business nnd and one who had no past, but was Just beginning, do you think you could marry him nnd settle down there?" The eyes which greeted him, half Inquisitively, half sad, were quickly lowered. "Oh, Jim!" she said. One July day a few weeks afterward a party of oil well drillers had finished a well which was voted a fair producer and one which would lw Improved by a heavy "shot" of nitroglycerin In tho oil rock, nnd work nbout the derrick was suspended until the arrival of "Torpedo Jim" with the explosive. Awny down tho road Jim was driving slowly along In deep study. Ho stopped nt a lend In the wild, unfrequented highway and took a long survey of the surroundings. "The Fourth's n good day to do It, too," Jim muttered. He got down from his seat nnd went up to the horses, patting them lovingly, for he was attached to the pair of faithful grays, nnd with tears In his eyes he said, speaking to them ns though they were human: "(I lby. Prince, old fellow and Ilc.'iu. faithful always In the past, faithful now. Our ends will bo sudden, nt least, and they will all say, 'I told jou sol' but we won't hear them." He ran to the rear of the wagon nnd hastily unlocked the lid, disclosing a half dozen bright tin runs.

Furthermore, It develops that In tba communities wliero church nttendanca Is practically nil, the women, who are credited with being the bnckbono of religious effort In the state, nre nearly In completo control of educational work. In three of tho western counties, where tho county superintendents of schools nre women and every teacher Is n woman, there Is but ona church to the county, nnd one of these Is merely n Mormon mission. The Investigation further discloses that there nro many places lu the stato where there Is no church or any other religious Institution for miles) and miles, although schoolhouses dot the prairies In ample number to the sparsely settled communities. Professor (leorgo K, Condra of tha University of Nebraska, who Is aldlns. tho Inquiry, says ho knows from personal visits of wholo townships whera children havo grown up without ever having seen n church or Suudayi school, but who at tho same time nro not larking In common school education.

Of this number KM are without n Calholle church. There nre I2S towns wllh n poslolllce, but no house of worship. Kecretnry Wilson In summing up bis lnestlgallou said: "We find the greatest problem presented to tho church today Is how to distribute equally the churches In nil sections of the state. While there Is almost a total lack of plnces of worship In western Nebraska, towns nnd elites farther east nre overcrowded ulth them. The recommendations of our rural church commission nre liolng prepared nnd will bo In our national conservation congress." The day after tho Fourth of July tho pnpers nil had long nccounts of the "terrible catastrophe," with sketches made by s'clul artists "on the spot." Great crowds of curious people drove to the scene and looked vacantly nt the hole In the ground, which was the only evidence of the sudden ending of (he life of "Torpedo Jim." "I hail a sori of presentiment when I saw Jim go past my shop today," said aa one man to another. "Poor Jim!" said another. "He had Church Facts In America. faults, same as the rest of us, but lie Seventy-livnorth American cities, had a heart he had a heart!
