It is barely possible that tho czar of all  " the Russias, having experienced tho delights of domestic peace, desires to extend  something of the same blissful .condition  of things all over the earth. Perhaps this  explains his recent peace manifesto.-  The czar's domestic happiness is due, of  nurse, to the czarina. As Princess Alice  .������*_ Hesse she av as chiefly notable for her  aiuAibility..; She is the favorite grandly     daughter of Queen "Victoria.  rlhe czarina lost her mother���������the most  briliant, attractive and popular of all British  princesses���������at- a  very early  age, and  tho quality of its intellect, aud last", but  not least, the lovely .faco, exquisite figure  and perfect carriage, all of which contribute to make her tho most charming sovereign lady in Christendom.  The homo life of the czar and czarina is  described as idyllic. Those who were familiar with tho austere forms of court life  as it was understood under the late czar  affirm that a now and charming spirit has  been infused' into it ever since .Nikolai  Alexandrovitch settled down to his new  role. It used toconsist solely of seven balls  during the season and solemn silence for  tho remainder of the year. Now it embraces everything ; that possesses human  interest. The czarina of course is the soul  of everything that is cheerful. Her little  daughter is not wholly abandoned to nurse  and governess, as most royal children are,  but spends much of her time with her empress mother..  THE COOKBOOK.  CZAUINA AND DAUGHTER,  from that time forth hor English relatives  took chargo of her, her aunts, Princess  Beatrice and the Empress Frederick, and  her cousins, Princesses Maud and Victoria  of Wales, being especially devoted to her.  But the ono who most fully assumed tho  place of her mother was good old Queen  Victoria herself, nnd it was to her that  "Sunny," the pet name by which the  czarina used to bo known among her relatives, turned for counsel when hesitating  between her love for Nicholas on the one  hand and her reluctanco to abandon tho  faith in which she had been reared on tho  ether. Tho advice which Queen Victoria  gave is best shown by tho fact that the  marriage took place.  What is so winning about tho czarina ia  her eagerness to please, the manifest delicacy of her sentiments, the Innocence of  a mind that is far above the awam \v  To serve stewed figs with whipped  cream put each fig on a small square of  sponge cako neatly cut and pile whipped  cream on the top.  To preservo vegetables keep the stalks  in water until ready to cook. Eggs may  bo kept by burying thorn in salt and carrots and turnips by burying in layers in a  box of sand.  . If, in using sour milk with soda for  griddlo cakes or muffins the milk does not  foam as it should to produce the desired  JIgfhtness, a teaspoonful of vinegar added  to tlie milk will givo tho desired result.  Housokeopers sometimes think nothing  onn bo done with cold baked potatoes. Unless overdone, they warm up quito as satisfactorily as tho boiled, and Dolmoni-  co's recipo for corned beef hash calls for  "an equal quantity of chopped cold baked  potatoes."  ANIMAL ODDITIES.  African elephants can climb mountains  with remarkablo ease.  A newly born giraffe measures about six  feet from his hoof to the top of his head.

From the Warden, Lindsay, Ont.  Mr. Robert McGee.of the 9th concession of Fenlon, Victoria county, says in  speaking of his cure from this   terrible  malady:���������"I am  35 years of age and  livb on the old homestead where  I was  born and have lived always  since, and  where my own little family were born.  This part of Fenlon is   known as  Mc-  G-ee's Settlement, there are so'many of  that   name   living    in   the    vicinity.  Never in my life  did I know  what  a  day's sickness was  until. March, 1895,;  when without  any  known  cause   and  without any   warning I was  stricken  down with an epiloptic fit.   It came on  in  the night, causing  great consternation in the household, as my wife, who  never saw anything of the kind before,  thought it.was my end; as for myself I  never felt nor knew anything that was  going on about mo.    After coming out  of the convulsion which  they  tell  me  usually   lasted from   fifteen  to thirty  minutes, I would fall into a heavy sleep  from which I would awake with a,dull,  heavy feeling, and all   the muscles  of  my body would be ' sore.    This would  pass away and in a day or two after the  attack I would he able to attend to my  farm work, but  strange to   say   every  four months after as regular as a' clock  I would be seized with a fit, which always came on. in  the night.    Various  doctors and specialists were  consulted  and I to 3k several different medicines,  but without effecting a cure.    Several,  doctors said   the disease was incurable.  I read of  Dr. Williams'   Pink Pills  in  the   newspapers and was   advised by  friends who had experienced cures from  other seemingly  incurable ailments, to  try them.    Iu November, 1896, I com  mericed and kept on  taking them regularly for a year.

Browning  was pleased at tho thought of gaining a  convert.  ;, A little later in the day he met  Evans, aud speaking of the suit said:  "It only cost $4. Thought it was a good  investment, so I bought it." ' Evans  liked it and said he was going around  to try one on. Browning thought protty  well of himself.  When he ran across Cleaver after  lunch, of course the conversation turn-  3d upon the suit. '.'Only cost $4," said  Browning, "mere trifle, you know.  Suit's worth it, though; don't you  think?'.' '  Cleaver did.  It was the same with Mitchell.  "Only had to pay $4 for it, you know."  And then Hudson agreed with all the  others that it was worth that if it waa-  worth a cent. In fact,; nine times that  day Browning said to one or more of  his friends, "It only cost $4." Ifc rained  before he got horse in the evening, and  he had no umbrella. >. When he reached  the house, the suit' looked like the garment Jean Valjean -wore in the sewers.  It was a lumpy mass of sticky burlap  and flapped around him like a muddy  colored banner. When Browning had  taken it off, he threw it over a chair, a  wreck of former nattiness ' and beauty,  and as he leaned back against the dresser  and surveyed it, dangling, limp, and  crinkled there, ho muttered, "And it  cost $4.''���������Detroit Free Press.

I  THE CUMBERLAND NEWS  CUMBERLAND. B.C. '  MARMALADES.  A. Fetr General Directions and Some Spe-  ,    cial Recipes For These Popular Preserves.  From the standpoint of wholesome-  ness or popularity fruit jama and marmalades differ widely, but as far as,  making is concerned they are identical.  Only currants and berries can be used  1 for jam proper, while marmalade has  the entire range of larger fruits from  plums to. quinces." The substitution of  granulated for coffee sugar and the heating of both, the sugar and the fruit before they are combined- has given both  conserves a finer color and .flavor. But  in spite of this jams���������especially currant  and raspberry���������have lost their old time  prestige. Familiarity with tho possible  results of eating fruit seeds was the  "handwriting on tho wall" that sealed  their doom. On tbe other hand; marmalades were never so delicious, so varied  or so popular as now.  No other preparation of fruit requires  such close attention f^om'flrst to last.  Constant and thorough stirring with a  ���������wooden ladle to prevent tho mass from  adhering to the bottom of the kettle  will alone insure success. A porcelain  lined kettle is better than a granite  ���������ware one; because thicker.  , Marmalade requires a little longer  cooking than jam, because the gelatinous skins and seeds , are rejected. The  fruit is first cooked until. soft. Then  mashed through a puree strainer to free  the pulp from.skins, etc. Ifc is then returned to the fire. The sugar added on  the mixture cooked slowly and steadily  until ifc is smooth and a little cooled on  a plate is firm and free from water.  These general directions preface th������  following recipes in Good Housekeeping for several kinds of marmalade:  Plum Marmalade.���������Wash, weigh and  cook the fruit, strain, add three-fourths  of a pound of sugar to every "pound oi  fruit aud cook 25'���������minutes.

Add the juice  ^of the,.lemons and cook ten minutes,  stirring constantly. If preferred, the  chopped kernels of one-third the piti  can be used instead of the lemon peel.  Crab Apple Marmalade.���������Wash, quarter and core" the fruit, coyer the cores  with cold water and stew an hour.  Strain*the liquid over the apples and  cook until soft.

Ribbon is prettily combined with embroidery in the latest work on linen, as  shown by a  design  in   the  New York  RIBBON EUN IN TABLE SCAiiF.  Tribune, a part of which is here reproduced. It is for a table scarf or a bureau  cover of hemstitched linen or muslin.  The ribbon is run in aud out of buttonholed slits, leaving a space of muslin  between each length of ribbon, whereon  is either embroidered a bouquet of flowers or, as is often seen on linen, an  applied figure in guipure. The ribbons  should match the color of the flower.  For instance, with violet; ribbon the  bouquets should be violets; pink calls  for rosebuds or any other pink flower,  etc.  The Two Tone Wax Seal.  The two tone seal in wax on an envelope made to match the two tone  - monogram on the paper is a mystery to  any one not in the secret, which the  New York Herald explains. For _ instance, a silver monogram and raised  ornamentation on a blue background is  easily duplicated in the seal. The background is of wax to match the background of the monogram. When ready  to seal the envelope, dip fche seal in the  (fell and wipe it quite dry, except the  engraving, where the oil remains. Then  dip the oily seal into the silver powder  and brush across the seal, leaving no  ���������silver except in those same indentations  oi the engraved monogram. Melt the  wax and drop it on to the proper place  and seal as usual.

MUNICIPAL  '   ELECTIONS.   ���������   -   '  The spirit of democracy has scored  a  direct triumph in   tho late  '   municipal elections in Ireland. The  Laborites   have' carried    all    before them, and all   the old ideas of  / reverence for social caste have been  trampled in the dust.  " In many cases wealthy em'ploy-  - ,ers were defetted_by their own  employees.     For   instance,    Maurice  Leonard,   the JEarl of Kenmare's  agent, a ground landlord and liith-  '   erto the most-influential   man   in  * ' the town, was   defeated by one of  his laborers, earning a  salary  cf  i  ., $2.25 per week  ., In the smaller towns especially,  , the silent revolution   showed itself  ,-lrIn some of these  we  have  a  local  .merchant  driven   to   tine   council  '' chamber by a "jarvey" who occept-  -s.  " ed his six'pence fare with a "chank  you sir," and then took his seat  among the aldermen, while the  merchant had to satisfy himself on  a councillor's bench. A neighbor  tJ called rt his shoemaker's the other  day to have his boots mended, and  "was told that "his worship (Alderman Caves) wasn't down yet.'-  This is, after all, as it should be.  In this country it is difficult to realize how strong the caste system  is in the old land, but the time is  fast coming there as well as over  all the world, when a man's social  standing and connections will have  little weight against an opponent  from the so-called "lower classes."  A man's worth should be measured by his ability and integrity, not  by the cast iroii rule of cash and  class.  In a small town in Kerry the  whole district board was composed  of laborers, except one���������a merchant  Considering it beneath his dignity  to sit with them, he resigned.

Teacher and pupils spend  most of their time in the classroom. Why not have it and its sur  .roundings as cheerful' as ' possible ?  We all like to take a glance backward to school days long past.

The scheme of having flower  gardens in the school grounds has  been" successfully canied out in  many countries. In Prance each  one of the 28,000 elementary  schools has one. In Sweden each  of the 2,000 schools has from one to  tvvelve acres attached. Austria has  8,000 such school gardens, and in  Central and Southern Prussia the  masters teach the children tree,  vine, garden and bee culture. Recently attention has been given to  it in some American schools, ��������� and  Boston teachers have been requiring their pupils to care for, study,  and sketch their plants. ��������� By this'  means pleasure and study are combined, but we do not advocate the  adding of any more 'ologies to the  curriculum wherewith to worry our  long suffering teachers.
