So she never baked at all,  Lett a, piece of butter fall  On her dainty ganneata white  Or her shoes so high and tight.  For she never cared to bake  Just alone for cooking's sake.  Oar Mattie bad a lover,  And she fell in lovj you see.  She thought his face as handsome  --    As a face eould ever be,  But he chanced, one sunny day.

That she in baking burned it,  And he kissed the finger twiee,  And Mattie thought she never  Knew a remedy so nice.  But the cunning fellow said,  "You've been baking cake or bread,  And thtre's naught I love to eat  Like a homaniade oake, my sweat,"  Bat she had not cared to bake  Just alone for cooking's sake.  ������ NOTICE  Public Notice is hereby given, to the E-  leotors of the Municipapity of Cumberland  that I require the presence of the said  electors at City Hall, Cumberland, B.

Near the piano, at one  end of stage stood a large Xmas Tree  loaded with toys, dolls, and glittering  ornaments; and strings of popcorn made  it a beautiful and attractive sight for old  as well as young. The children all seemed delighted' with their presents; the  booby presents for some of the elders  caused considerable merriment. Each  child was supplied with a bag full of  candy, nuts and oranges.  Santa Claus made his appearance in  time to unload the tree, but the poor  fellow had the misfortune to set the fur  on his coat afire from one of the lighted  candles which set him all ablaze in a  moment, making things lively for a few  seconds, while Santa beat a hasty retreat.

The "Siefi-e Venison" of Paris Is Usually  tlie First Resource���������Then the Flesh of  Bogs, Cats, Rata and Even Wild Ueasts  Is Devoured. ,,  ' It is only in times of siege and faiuine  that men discover how many different  kinds of food there are besides those usually consumed. Hunger drives them to experiments upon substances which they  would shrink from eating on ordinary occasions, and they frequently find that  the.=e uncommon foods, generally considered unfit for human beings, tire not only  nourishing but agreejible in flavor onco  the prejudice against them has been broken and the palate accustomed to the new-  tasro.  There have been "at times in different  countries associations of persons who made  trials of odd .foods for the purpose of ascertaining their fitness for consumption, but'  they havo never succeeded in accomplishing their 'projected reforms. Most people  , cling londly'tu their old ideas about what  is good to eat and what is not, and only  the prospect of genuine famine can persuade' them to try ordinarily condemned  things  Wnen any town or district has been bc-  Feigcd for such a length of time that its  food supply runs short, the first proceeding'usuisily resorted to In order to procure  food for tho inhabitants is the killing of  ��������� horses. This meat seems to be preferred  to any other of an unusual nature when  the everyday beef, mutton and pork bo-  come unobtainable. Tlie eating of horseflesh under such circumstances- is a practice dating back to very early times,'instances of it being mentioned among the  Persians, tho Greeks and other nations of  .   antiquity.  Later it is recorded that at the siege of  Antioch, in the first crusade, the horses of  the besiegers were eaten in such quantities  that iii' t\vo"months not more than 2,000  of the original 70,000 were left.' Att the  siege of Metz 30,000 horses aro said to  have been eaten.  But the famous siege of Paris in the  Franco-Prussian war furnishes the most  interesting example of the variety of  meats which may be used in great straits.  During that terrible winter of 1S70-1,  while the German army outside prevented  supplies of any kind from being brought  into the unfortunate French capital, not  only such familiar animals as horses,  mules, dogs, cats, rats and mice .supplied  the tables of rich and poor alike, but even  the,menagerie of wild beasts in tho Jardin  des" Plances disappeared gradually, and  neither doubt nor surprise was expressed  at its destination.  Of the horses 65,000 were eaten during  the' siege. This meat, however, was not  new to the Parisian taste���������at least hot to  the taste,of the working classes. Since  18G6 it had been lawful to slaughter horses  for human food, and horse butcher shops  were common establishments in the city.  But the entire number of horses killed in  time of peace was trifling compu-rcd to this  enormous total in' wartime. The Parisians, with their irrepressible levity and  disposition to smooth matters over, even  under such circumstances as these, called  the horse i.neatc" siege. venison," and there  were few complaints regarding it.  According to the general'testimony,.hot.  only of the French at this time, but of  scientists'' in different countries who have  tried the meat under many conditions,  horseflesh possesses a flavor about half  way between that of beef and game and is  variously compared to venison and to hare.  It is coarser in grain than beef and in this  respect resembles bull beef more than any  other. It has a 'peculiar smell, which is.  at first a trifle disconcerting, but which  soon.: becomes familiar, and .a certain  sweetness of taste. It is darker in color  and'more moist than beef. Its fat, which  is moist and yellow, is not generally mixed with the lean, and-it soon melts and,  becomes rancid. One authority says that  horse meat, being richer, is undoubtedly  superior:to beef for, soup, and he goes on  to declare that for roasting the best parts  of a young horse' are finer than any beef.  The chief chemical difference between the  two. is that horseflesh has the greater  quantity of the nitrogenous substance  called creatine. .   :  Besides the 65,000 horses eaten during  the siege of Paris.1,000 asses and 2,000  mules are said to have been consumed.  The flesh of the latter was pronounced  delicious, excelling _ horseflesh in its quality. The number of rats and mice used is  not computed, but of' dogs there aro said  to have been 1,200'" and of cats 3,000. From  tho testimony of many persons who have  eaten tho flesh of cats and dogs it is said  to resemble that of rabbits and when well  cooked to be extremely palatable.,  Of tho animals in tho menagerie of the  Jardin des Plantes the flesh, of two bears  which wero eaten was likened to pork,  both in texture and taste.' Three elephanta  were consumed, and whilo there is no record of the way in which tho Parisians prepared their elephant' meat it is well known  chat it can be mado'pleasant to tho taste  when cooked in the proper way. African  travelers and hunters havo many tales to  tell of the delicacy of baked elephant's  foot. Elephant's heart and liver aro also  esteemed as food, and' steaks cut from the  animal are said to be; juicy and tender.  Three kangaroos and a seal from the  menagerie helped to vary still further the  siege fare. The seal's flesh was compared  to young lamb. ,     ,     ,  Although meat is desirable for its  strength giving qualities, 'especially when  men require unusual vigor for fighting,  still vegetable foods will support life and  energy for a long time. Rice is nourishing and has served as a war food; During  the famous siege of Lucknow, in India, it  was for a long time-thfe only thing left to  eat. The native soldiers, generously requested that what little rice there was  should be givfcn to their'British comrades.  They would get along,, they said, with the  "soup"���������that is, the water in which the  rice'had been boiledl^���������New York Tribune.  One cf the Peculiarities of Registering at  Menace  To be thoroughly informed, about the  personality and movements of every visitor the government supplies the hotel  registers, which are examined daily by<the  police, and any landlord who' allows a  guest to remain even for a night in Iris  house without filling lip the blanks makes  himself liable to a heavy line. The blanks  include such questions as name, residence,  occupation, last halting place, intended  duration of stay in Monaco and intended  destination. So when George appeared  with the black covered book in his hand I  knew what he wanted. Perhaps I should  explain that here as in most European  hotels it is not necessary for a guest to go  near the office unless he chooses to. The  register is,brought to his room���������the bills,  the meals, if he likes, and the landlord,  too, if he is rung for.  "All right, George," I told him. "Don't  bother me with the thing. You register  me under any name and occupation you  think would be suitable. I am not in tho  least particular."  He went to tho mantelpiece with the  book and a lead pencil, and his expression  showed that he was 'going through a severe mental struggle. When it was over,  he brought mo the book to see "wheder  dat'11 do, sah."  In his anxiety to make his countryman  appear as gran^ as possible he had rather-  turned the taoles upon me, for he had  registered mo as ''the Hon. G. W. Ingram;  residence, Washington; occupation, United States "senator; last stopping place,  Paris; intended stay in Monaco, two  weeks; intended ' destination, Cairo,  Egypt." Fine as it looked, sucfi false pretenses might lead to awkward complications, and it was necessary to find some  way to back out gracefully.  "Has my friend registered yet?" I asked.  "No, sah," said George. "I'ze'jest goin  to his room now, sah."  "Very well, then," I told him. "You  need not trouble him."'This description  you havo written will answer for him very  nicelj-, and I will put'my own name and  'pedigree' beneath it," which 'I did, and  tho rosy young Englishman received the  greatest'honor of his life by being mado  for the moment an American and a senator.���������New York Times.  STYLE  IN THE SURF.  INSTINCTIVE   REASONING.  Professor Wltir.er   Gave Bis  Audience an  ' i: sain pie of It.  Professor Lighrner Witmer of the University of Pennsylvania was a participator  in a symposium on "Reason Versus Instinct" before the Contemporary club.  His address was mainly devoted to exemplifying the faculty of instinct in the lower animals as well as in man, furnishing  numerous instances and illustrations in  support of his views. The professor is a  slow and deliberate speaker,.and his manner is serious, not to say solemn. At ono  period of his discourse he'made a longer  pause than usual, and then, with additional delibcratcness and seriousness, began the relation of a story.  He fold how ho had walked out one evening with  a young   lady���������his sweetheart,  and   with   pofttical   feeling   and   artistic  phrase described the peace and   beauty of  the evening and the  sympathy of mutual  happiness and  love that each experienced  in the society of the other.     In this strain  the  professor continued for quite a, time.  There was  absolute  silence in the room.  Tho men looked at the speaker quizzically,  as  much  as  to  say:  "Jove!    Man's got  pluck to tell an audience liko this his love  affair!" while  the women, -who were   numerous, kept their gaze fixed on him with  unconcealed     interest    and    expectancy.  '.'And  after a  time," the  professor went  on, '.'wo  sat down  to rest on the trunk of  a fallen tree, and my dear love climbed up  on   my knee and  establishing herself securely in my lap put her little arms around  my neck and, drawing down my head until  her  sweet  face  rested   against mine,  said"-��������� The professor paused and glanced  slowly from the  auditors on   his right to  those on his left..    There was  general expectancy among them all now.     The men  looked  puzzled and  tho women  sat open  mouthed  and intent.    "Her  sweet   face  rested  against  mine, said, 'Uncle, is the  moon really made of green cheese?' "The  audience for a moment was astonished into absolute  rigidity by this   unlooked for  denouement  and then   broke  into merry  laughter   as  they   began   to , comprehend  how the  professor-, had  played on  them.  "That," he went on, "was.'a story told me  by a certain  professor,, and  I  think  you  will   now understand  what  is  meant by  instinctive      reasoning." ��������� Philadelphia  Times.

The patriotic love for the  red, white and blue can assert itself  without limit in this branch of dress.  Red and blue,' blue with red trimmings  and red with white are conspicuous examples of color in bathing dress which  are very attractive. Red serge or flannel suits are trimmed with black, white  or blue braid. It is the soft, rich shades  which are most desirable, and red is  recommended not alone for the fashion  Ip color, but also as affording a danger  lignal in case the bather wishes to attract attention, the red gown making a  very noticeable point of color in the  water. Blue, black and white aro quite  as much the fashion as ever, and if the  adjectivo "genteel" can bo applied to  differences in , bathing suits black and  blue are perhaps the most desirable.  In materials alpaca, serge, flannel,  ���������ilk and satin are in order, but alpaca  or mobair has the lead, because it sheds  the water nicely and does not ��������� cling so  closely to the figure. Any color which  suits the fancy may be chosen, as it  comes in every possible shade.  The ultra fashionable girl is supplied  with several suits in different colors.  Pale green is one of the novel colors employed, but r rare exception. Of course  there are varying degrees of elegance in  this department, but the average bathing suit is very much trimmed with  braid in contrasting colors and effectively used on bands of white sewed on  the dark colors. White silk and mohair  suits, trimmed, with -turquoise bine  braid, are the daintiest of all. Some of  the suits are braided in fancy designs  on the front of the blouse bodice and  front breadth of the .skirt, and a few  novelties are embroidered, but the usual  decoration is braid, vaAjrasly disposed  in runs around the skirt, across the vest  and around the revers collar. Double  revers are a featuie of some of the costumes, and they are, nearly all made  with the blouse waist and full, well  hung skirt, with', knickerbockers attached. '    H  The  sleeves   are  a short puff,   with  trimmed band below, and the belt usa-  Color Hearing;.  Color hearing is well understood by psychologists as a state in which colors are  as'ociated with given sounds. One of the  most marked conditions of this sort is  mentioned in the caso of a patient who  was suffering with brain fever. Whenever  the door of tho sickroom was opened, the  entire apartment seemed flooded with yellow light. A heavily loaded wagon passing along the street produced the color of  blue flamo and tho peculiar metallic iridescent tints one sees on steel in the sunshine. Certain voices seem to bring a  ruby or garnet shade before the vision,  and so on through a considerably extended  list of sounds that were likely to occur  about the house. In normal states very  beautiful shades of gold, purplo and red  tints have been noted. A sudden noise as  the falling of any object often produces a  sue' .en rush of color before the eyes.  These colors are not always the same,  neither do they continue even for an instant. There may be half a dozen variations of color and shading in as many seconds.���������New. York Ledger.

For example, on a  blue gown it may be white or red; on  white, bine or red, trimmed with white  braid. Very elegant bathing suits are  made of black satin, with corded tucks  running up, apron" fashion, on the skirt,  after the prevailing mode in street  dress, and corded around the bodice to  form a yoke.  Some of the most fetching costumes  nre cut moderately low in the neck and  made with the simple blouse, finished  around the edge with braid. Flannel  and mohair suits are also made in this  way, which many women with pretty  shoulders prefer, as it does away with  the extra thickness of the collar. In addition to tho foregoing illustration and  descriptions of bathing dress, the Now  York Sun affords the interesting information that pliable corsets of flannel  stiffened with featherbone are a'part of  the outfit, which improves the figure  very much, and these are usually attached to the knickerbockers.  Bathing tights also in all colors are  the welcome substitute for stockings,  and if you want to be very elegant you  should wear long lisle thread gloves  which are made exclusively for bathers.  Stockings or tights in very bright colors are to be worn with black and white  suits if rumor is correct.  CURTAIN   RAISERS.  The effort to inject wrestlers into the'  theatrical business has happily met with  conspicuous failure.',  "An Old Coat," despite the rents made  in it by the New York critics, will go on  the road again next season.  James Young has signed a five years'  contract with Augustin Daly, who will  present him to New York theater goers  next fall in the role of Shylock.  Herbert Kelcey and Effie Shannon have  been so successful with Clyde Fitch's  comedy, "The Moth and, the Flame,"  that they will use it again next season.  The local stock company idea is growing rapidly, and it is.said that next season  nioro than 60 theaters in this country will  be devoted to that form of entertainment.  Victor Maurel, the veteran 'baritone, is  making more money than he ever earned  before by giving recitals in Paris, where,  by the way, Alvarez is something of a failure. ^ ,  Maude Adams, during her long season  in New York, which has just come to an  end, pz-obably played to moro money than  any actor has ever drawn in Now York in  one year. *  , Viola Allen has gono to tho isle of Man  to consult with Hall Caine concerning his  SCOTTY ADDRESSES SPAIN;  'The   Christian,"   in  which  Miss  next  play,  Allen   is to mako' her stellar debut  fall in New York. *-  May Buckley will again be a member of  John Drew's sompany next 6eason. At  present she is charming the theater goers  of her native "city; San Francisco, by hor  delightful acting and dainty methods.  The income of Emma Calve, the famous  soprano, is said to bo six times as much  as the salary paid to the president of the  United States. This may be a press agent's  6tory, but it is not so far from the truth  as many persons may think.,  THE BEEHIVE.  ' Bees should have access to an abundance  of honey producing plants.  Avoid blowing your breath among tho  bees while handling tho comb.  It, will save much loss of bees if the  grass is kept down around the hives.  Basswopd is one of the best-honey producers for tho short time It is in bloom.  Bees use a good deal of water in the  production of food and the secretion of  wax.  If moths once get a footing in the hives,  the colonics will be destroyed in a short  time.  Most swarms will quietly settle within  a short distance of their hives without  any help.  Tho hives should be examined and the  honey extracted as soon as the, combs are  sealed over.     < v  Usually it is not profitable to allow a  queen to remain in a colony longer than  about; two years.  A beehive should be approached from  the side or rear so as not to disturb the  flight of the bees.  There must bo promptness in putting  on surplus-boxes or sections whenever tho  hives become crowded with bees.  Remove all combs from tho brood chambers not' absolutely necessary for brooding purposes.���������St. Louis Republic.

' Less than a week after the events last  related, and a family group surrounds  'the lunch table in tho nowly-furnished  "morning room of Oakley. ���������  '  The fair and fasoinatiug Mr3. Torrance  had accomplished the purpose   for which  she came to Bellair.'  ���������  Truly  had she said,   "There is'no fool  eyes  into  step  like an old   fool," for  John  Arthur had  ���������      been-an'easy victim. Ho had lost no timo  with   his   wooing, and so,   a  little less  .than'two month's from tho day   the   fair  widow caine to Bellair, saw. hor mistress  of John Arthur's household!  A   bridal   tour   was not to  her . taste,  '."much to the delight of  tho   bridegroom.  So they set about refitting  some   of   the  fine   old   rooms  of  tho   mansion,   Cora  having    declared   that,  they   were    too  gloomy to be inhabitable. -  -    ! , As it was to   her interest   to   keep   up  the deception ofvfrank affoctlon, she had  beon,   .during   tho two months   of  their  '"   "honeymoon,'a model wife.

Whereupon, Miss Arthur blushed,  giggled, and disclaimed; Mrs. Arthur  disappeared behind a newspaper; and  Mr. Arthur omorged from the fog of  thought that had enveloped- him, to say  brusquely:  "Miss Arthur want a maid? what's all  this? A French maid in a country house  ���������faugh !''  Miss Arthur gazed across at her  brother,' and said, loftily, and somewhat  unmeaningly:  " It is what I have chosen to do, John.''  Tnen to Mr.  Davlin,   swootly:   It   is   so  hard to dispeuso  with a maid   when yOu  have been accustomed to one."  "I suppose so.-'  "And   this   one comes so woll   recommended,   you   know, by Mrs.   Overman  and Mrs. Grosvonor.    You  have hoard of  these   ladies   in society, no   doubt,   Mr.  Davlin?"  "Oh, certainly," aloud, "not,"   aside.  "And tho name of the maid?" pursued  . Lucian.  "Hor name,"   referring   to tho   letter,  "Celine Laroquo���������French, I presume."  "No doubt," dryly.  "Stop him, Miss Arthur," interrupted  Cora, prettily; "he will certainly ask if  sho is handsome, if you lot him opeu his  mouth again."       .  Miss Arthur glanced at him suspiciously. "Not having seen her, I could' not  inform him j" she said, coldly.  "Don't believe my sister, " said Davlin, quietly as ho passed his cup. "Cora,  a little more chocolate please. Miss  _ Arthur, I met Mrs.- Grosvenor at the seaside, two. years ago. Hor toilets were the  mar vol of the day; she protested that all  credit was due her maid, who was a  whole 'magazine of French art.' I  thought this might bo tho same. I  most earnestly hope that it is," pro-  nouncod Miss Arthur.  "And,I most.earnostly hope it isn't,"  grumbled her brother, who to-day felt  vicious for many reasons, and didn't  much care what, the occasion was, so  long as it gave him an oxcuso for growling/'  At this happy stage of affairs the door  was opened and the housemaid announced: "An old lady, who says I am to tell  you that her name" is' Hagar, wants to  see you, sir," addressing Mr. Arthur..  The master of the *'b,QU:sj& started, and  an angry flush settled'upon his face.  "Send her away. ;-I 'won't ..see the old  bedlam.  Send her away. "  The girl bowed and was 'about to retire, when she was pushed from the doorway with little ceremony, and Nurse  Hagar entered.. Befora the occupants of  the room had recovered from their sur-  , prise, or found voice to address her, she  had crossed the room, and paused before  John Arthur. Placing a small. bundle  upon the table near him1, she said:  "Don't think you can order me from  your door, John Arthur, when I choose to  enter it. I shall never come to you without good reason, and I presume you will  think me a welcome messenger when  you know my errand. "  "Confound you," said the man, angri  ly, yet with an unaasy look in  his  "if you must chatter, to  me, come  the library." " He arose "and made a  toward the door.  "There is no need," said Hagar, with  dignity; "my errand'may interest others  here besides yourself. I bring a message  from the dead.''  John Arthur turned ashen pale and  trembled violently. All eyes were turned upon the speaker, however, but his  agitation was-_-unnoticcd save by Hagar.  "Last night," she continued, "a carriage stopped at my door and' a woman*  came in, bringing that bundle in her  hands."  She paused, and seemed struggling  with her feelings. "       7  "She said," continued Hagar, "that  she was requested to come by a dying  girl,' else she would have written the  message given to her. She belonged to a  charitable society, and visited the hospital every week. She brought flowers'  and fruit to one of the patients���������a girl  who died asking her to write down what  is on this card," holding out a bit of  white cardboard, "and not to tell tho  officers of the hospital her true name.

The lady promised; the girl gave  her those articles, and the lady kept her  word, and brought tho message There  is the bundle," in a clicking voice, "and  here is the card. That is all. Gooa-by,  John Arthur; be happy, if you can.  And may God's curse fall upon .all who  drove her to her doom !" ,  She gathered hor shawl about. hor  shoulders, and, casting a meaning glance  at Lucian* Davlin, passed from the room  and the house.  John Arthur sat with eyes riveted upon  the card ^before him.

Scant information,  but it was enough.  Cora pounced upon the bundle and  opened it. It contained a little purse ; ,a,  few trinkets, which any of the servants  ,could identify as belonging to Madeline;  the . cloak she had worn the evening of  her flight; and a pocket-handkerchief  with her name embroidered in the'  corner. ,   -'  Satisfaction beamed in the face Cora  turned toward Lucian, and away from  Miss Arthur. Sho was mindful of cho  proprieties, however, and turning her  eyes back upon tho lady opposite, she  pressed a dainty handkerchief to her  countenance, and murmured plaintively:  "How very, very shocking, and sad !  Poor Mr. Arthur is quite overcome, and  no wonder���������that poor, sweet, young  girl.''  Across Lucian's averted face flitted a  smile of sarcasm. How little she knew  of tho truth, this fair hypocrite, and how  unlikely she was over to know now. If  Madolino were dead, of what avail was  any effort to break from the olden thraldom���������for this is what had been in the  mind of the scheming man.  Cora brushed her handkerchief across  her eyes and arose languidly. "I must  go to Mr. Arthur, pbor man," she murmured, shaking out hor flounces. "He  is terribly shockod, I fear. "  Studiously avoiding tne necessity of  glancing in the direction of Mr. Davlin,  sho glided from tho  room.

Prof. Crookes Has Used Them With Considerable Success in Detecting*  I'alse Gems.  Imitation diamonds can be quickly  and readily dist'nguiahed by means of  the X-rays. Under the Roentgen radiation diamonds are extremely transparent,  while the highly refracting glass used in  imitations ,is almost perfectly opaque.  This fact, put strikingly in evidence by  recent' experiments of Sir William  Crookes, makes it possiblo for daalers  and purchasers to detect false gems.  It was while experimenting with various substances seen under the . Roentgen,  rays that this ^interesting and valuable  discovery was made. Sir William Crookes  as a result of his investigations has  produced a photograph in which a black  diamond, set In a gold frame, and a  large Delhi diamond, of a fine pink  color, together with an imitation in* glass  of,,a pink diamond, are shown as they  appear when exposed to the X-rays for a  few seconds.  The pictured result shows that tho  diamonds permitted the rays to pass  through them, while the glass stopped  them almost completely.  As the experimenter explains, it is not  essential that a photograph should be  taken in order to exhibit the difference  of transparency of diamonds and glass  for Roentgen radiation, for if ,the three  objects had been placed between a source  of   the rays and a phosphorescent, screen  tooth wash.

What the newspapers   so   essentially   report   as cases of  'hydrophobia'    are,    in   reality,    nothing  more   nor   less   than  instances of people  who have been bitten by, dogs and frightened into hysterical conditions   in which  they involuntarily  reproduce all the supposed symptoms of   'hydropobia.',   It is a  pity .that   our   newspaper editors cannot  have a moro careful regard . for   the feelings   of     women     during   the    summer  months and agree to suppress the reports  of   cases   supposed  to'be' 'hydrophobia.'  They-make tho public mind nervous,-und  do   more, 'to   spread the silly notion of a  belief   in   'hydrophobia'   than   anything  else.      Women   have   had   their   feelings  played upon long'encuch   by, this-foolis'h  notion of 'hydrophobia,' and enough  im-'  necessory   suffering   has,  been     inflicted  upon   the   dog,   who   is", often killed for  nothing but a popular fallacy.' It is high  timo   that   common-sen^e    should   iuIu;  that we'should'believe the fact that there  is, no   such thing as   'hydrophobia,' and  rid ourselves cf this   bugaaoo of tha mad  dos:."

But just how valuable they  really are few of us realize. They aro of  .very-great-medical value, and are better  than patent medicines and nostrums put  up in bottles and boxes for tho bonoflt (?)  of the human family.  A teaspoonful of lemon juico in a small  cup of black coffeo will drive away an attack of bilious headache, but it is hotter  to uso them freely and so avoid tho attack of headache. A slice of lemon rubbed  on the temples and back of tho neck is  also good for headache. These facts holp  in beautifying one, for who can be beautiful and ailing at the samo time? The  days are past when tho delicate woman  with "nerves" was the heroine of,all the  novels and the "clinging vine" supposed  to be admired by all men.  Lemons taken, or rather used, externally, will aid in beautifying anyone.  There is nothing moro valuable for the  toilet table than a solution of lemon  juico, a little rubbed on the hands, fuce  and neck at night will not only whiton  but soften the skin. A paste mado of  magnesia and lemon juice applied to the  face and hands upon lying down for a  fifteen minutes' rest will bleach the skin  beautifully.  Fer discolored or stained finger nails a  teasDoonful of lemon juice in a cup of  warm soft water is invaluable; this is one  of tho very best manicure acids.

The   second point in importance is that a dish shall be  as   attractive  in appearance as it is   porfect   in  flavor;  that it should be   placed   upon   the table  as an added   enjoyment- and   hospitality  served by tho host or hostess.    TheVthird  point, also of importance, is that   a   dinner should be seasonable���������not an    antici-  i pation of seasons���������-for every chosen article  should bo at its very   best.
