Flsh constitutes one of tho most vnl-

of flesh meat. But It Is good for the

Tho  First  "St rail"  Sent  to  London
Coulil Find Tin I'ui'cliAsCr,
Itnllan violins have not always held
the supremacy they now enjoy. It was
not Indeed till (lie beginning of the
"nineteenth century that they enmo Into
vogtio to nny extent outside their native land. Previously 'Jacob • Stoiuer
(1031-83) was tlio favorite maker, nnd
his high model had been almost exclusively copied by his follow Germans1
mid tho different makers En Franco nnd
England. When tho elder Cor-votto,
who hnd been n pjcTcknnt before .entering tho musical profession, ciliuc to
London, In 173S, ho brought with him
some Instruments by ^trndivuri. The
result of this endeavor to Introduco
Italian work Into Engl&nd2fflf|J>u{j FlSf
pathetic womlei'. It Is almost beyond,
belief. As bo could not got ns nnicli ns
i'5 (,fl25) for a violoncello he wns cbligetl
(o send tlie Instrument back to Italy
for a hnd speculation. Five pounds for
ft "Strati," nnd not a single purchaser
to be found!
This Incident in Uself furnishes sufficient testimony to tho slavish following
of the great German maker nnd tho
strong prejudice of the violin! ts of
that period iu favor of tlio high model.
It Is Indeed the players who nre most
to blame for tho slow adoption of tho
lint model, for the creator must mnko
whnt Is necessitated by the demand;
but tho eighteenth century fiddlers, nt
any rate In England, France and Germany, seem for the most part to havo
been content thnt their violins should
possess a small sweet tone, never realizing the lack of power uml sonority.—
The richer the cake the slower should

To retain the juice In a fruit pie
while cooklug make a small hole lu the
center of tlio crust and stick into It n

Chinese Point* For riant*.
"Don't eat with  your ears," snyai
Sunn Mel, a Chinese writer, "by which r
I menu do not aim nt having extraordinary out of tho way foods, just to j
astonish your guests, for thnt Is to
ent with your ears, uot with your
mouth.  Bonn curd, if good, is actually
nicer thnn birds' nest. And better thnn
sen slugs, which nro not first rate, ls ft
dish of bamboo shoots.
"The chicken, tbe pig, the flsh and
tho duck—these nro the four heroes of
tho table. Sea slugs nnd birds' nest
linvo no characteristic ilnvors of their
own. They nro but usurpers In the
house. I onco dined with n friend who
gave us birds' nests In bowls llko vnts,
holding each nbout four ounces of tbo
plain boiled article. The other, guests
applauded vigorously, but I smiled nnd
anhl I came here to ent birds' nest, not
to tako delivery of It wholesale."

Anton Itubltistelii, tho Russian composer, In his autobiography tells of the
confusion which overcame a certain
architect of his acquaintance who had
a habit of Interlarding all his remarks
jwlth tho phrase, "l'ou understand,"
On ono occasion he was explaining
certain nrchltectural matters to the
emperor, and, according to custom,
made freo use of his favorite expression.
'"Good heavens!" exclaimed Emperor
Nicholas at Inst irritably. "Of course I
understand! My dear fellow, how
could I help It?"
How the Native*. Trent Gorlllna.
Natives In the countries Inhabited by
grent apes regard them always ns human beings of Inferior types, and It is
for this reason thnt for a long tlmo It
was found impossiblo to get hold of
an entlro gorilla skin, because tho savages considered It religiously necessary to cut off tho hands nud feet of
the nulmals when they killed them,
Just as (hoy do with their enemies, possibly for the purpose of rendering them
harmless In case they should by nny
chance como to llfo again.

"It Is true," Bald (ho person of high
Weals, "thnt you havo attained prosperity by your writings, hut you have

•writings, I didn't hesitate (o sacrifice
my writings."

A Pn'lent'n Room.
Periplc who nre not disturbed by disorder when well nre often disturbed by
the least confusion In the arrangement
of n room when III. Everything In the
room should bo carefully adjusted to
the best advantage, for n sick person's
fancy Is most capricious. Nothing
should be allowed to Ho around carelessly. Tlio table should not be littered
Willi hooks nnd papers. Flowers should
be- kept no longer than while absolutely fresh. Medicine nud wnter glasses should be carefully washed aud kept
from tho sight of the patient The
eight of medicine Is uot only trying to
nn Invalid, but often nauseating. No
food should ever be prepared in the
sickroom. If only a small howl of
broth, It should bo served ns Invitingly ns possible Nor should a bowl of
broth or gruel or a cup of tea be car-
tied to tlie sick person lu your hand.
Place It on a tray covered with n clean
napkin. Bring but a little quantity at
ti tlmo, for a -largo quantity Is npt to
take away the patient's nppetlte. If
possible always servo too little, re*
nerving a supply until asked for more.

Wnslilnff Dishes,
While- a love for dishwashing la
lit\rdly to bo expected, still a positive
distnsto for it may bo mitigated if not
pruvoifted by doing it in tlio right way.
First collect nil the silver, wiping off
nny grease with n soft rng, and stand
It In n bowl of hot water. Next gather
tlio glassware nml cups nnd saucers
nnd stack them according to their kind
on n largo tray. Scrape tho plates ns
clean as possible with bits of bread.
Stack them and then empty and scrape
the plntlci's and vegetable dishes. Pro*
vide two largo pans, ono for washing,
Iho other for rinsing, and have plenty
of hot water ready. Put tho silver In
Iho rinsing pan and, pouring ln hot
water, wnsh it with (ho hands, wiping
dry with n soft cloth. Next wnsh tho
cups and saucers, the plates and tho
larger dishes In the order named, using
hot water plentifully throughout. Finally make a good suds of the rinsing
water and Jit it wash tho glusswarc,
wiping dry with n towel thnt will not
lint;. Then put (hem nil away In their
proper places und clean up the kitchen.
Children's Questions.
To those who find It dllllcult to give
Information ou somo of tho subjects
that children ask questions about It ts
n comfort lo realize lhat very often the
better plan Is to let n child keep an Interesting question In mind Instead of
satisfying curiosity with some commonplace reply. Such a reply, hy killing Iho desire for knowledge on a particular (heme, takes nwny Just so much
of tho child's zest. Tench the questioner how to observe nud to rely upon
his own observation for answers to
most questions. Thnt course will develop mental alertness nnd make everyday llfo more entertaining.
iH3b Little M
An Effective  Trick Thnt Will  Sbi*-
prlse Yonr I'lnj mutcn.
Here Is n trick which Is always vory
effective at a party or any gathering
of young pcoplo.
Take a tin cup or a cup of some other
metal and (ill ii. almost full of spirits
of wine. Into tbls put a tenspooaful of
common table salt and stir It thoroughly until the salt Is dissolved.) Place this
upon a wire frniue nud fix tho frame*
over a spirit lamp or n dark lantern
so that none of the light from the Inn*
tern can shine Into any part of tuo
room. This should bo done In one end
of tho room and tho company sen ted
In a line ns near tho center of tho
room as possible.
As soon as the cup gets so hot thnt
7s>u caunot rest tbe tin of yonr finger
against It hold n lighted match near
the mixture of spirits of wlho and salt,
A very small yellow flame will ortso
from the surface and gradually Increase In size. Now put out the othcr
light In the room, nnd In a moment you
will observe a most' peculiar effect.
Everything In the room, whatever Its
previous color, will now be a most positive yellow. If the yellow light from
the cup Is not quite strong enough,
throw some more suit In tho mixture,
and then tbe yellow dailies will be
still stronger In color, nods, blues,
blacks, whites, greens, everything will
lose all Its previous tint and become a
ghastly solid yellow.
l'ou will hardly bo nblo to rocognlzo
your little friends, nnd they will
scarcely know you. Their hair, faces,
clothes, the chnlra they sit on and all
tho rest of tho furniture, tho carpet-
In fact, everything In tho room will
look ns If lt had suddenly received a
thick coat of yellow paint. This Is a
vory quick way of changing brunettes
to blonds, nnd there will not be n single laddie or lassie with raven tresses
In the room.
Now plnce an ordinary light at tho
axtremo other end of the room, nnd
tha effect will bo two lights, ono whlto
and the ether yellow. Vou must bo
careful not to have tho white light
stronger than tho yellow one, and (hen
while one-half of each will appear in
its proper colors, tho other half will
still ben vivid yellow, nnd the dividing
lines will be sharply defined.
To get tho best effect of this you and
your friends should bo seated in two
lines facing each other, with a light
on each cud of tho Hues.
