HOW KHAKI WAS DISCOVERED. FOU'fUN E FOR A-;'- LIEUTENANT. Khaki, the. color which will render our troops so difficult" to see, was dis covered by a happy accident. ? The British troops in India wore a . cotton uniform which, when it was new, was khaki ? in color, hut after a rsiit to tho_ laundry was indescribable. A Man-" Chester business man, discussing this defect, remarked casually that a for tune awaited the man who could find a khaki dye that neither sun, soap, nor soda would fade. A young offi cer ? heard the remark, hired a skilful native dyer ,and began the search. Years passed in fruitless experiment's till one day,-turning over a heap of rags, relics of their, failures, they chan ced upon one piece which was still khaki ,though the laundry had worked its will.

THE DAUGHTER'S PART. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 March 1915
THE DAUGHTER'S PART. Ouo of the sweetest things a girl can do is to receive friends graciously, par ticularly at home. In one's own house a cordial manner is fitting. Do not stand olf in tho middle of the loom and bow coldly and formally to tho friend who haa called. Walk over to meet her; give her your hand, and say pleasantly, that you are very glad to see her again. Stiff, cold, and formal ways of greeting acquautanccs are not proper. A daughter's part is to assist her mother on every social occasion. The girl pours tho tea in her mother's draw ing room when friends drop in at four o'clock. Quite often, when no maid is present, she helps tho guests to what ever i3 served at four o'clock tea, and herself hands the cups, and takes thorn from tho guosts. Apart from, and iuoro important even than her manner to a guest who looks iu for an hour on a day, is the manner of a daughter to lior father and mother. ?The father returns to his home, after a wearying day at business. He is tired...
