Convenient and pretty little bookmarks are made in this fashion: Cut off the corners of a square envelope of nice Irish linen paper, and you will have the material for four. These little caps fit on the corner of a page and mark one's place as well as more costly devices. They are made pretty by painting on them little designs done in water color, such as a bowknot, a conventional flower-de-luce, a festoon of roses or a Cupid. The paper for those marks is sometimes tinted a pale blue, green or rose color and the edges touched with an irregular line of gold or silver paint. — New York Post.

Potts — Only sew sew. I have had a stitch in my back for two or three days. — Indianapolis Journal.
