A little fracas in the police  court was given hearing last week  Ii appears that 3 or 4 years ago  a certain gentleman well known  jn the valley sold certain land in  the valley without reservation by  an agreenent for sale executed in  duplicate. A little while after  the bargain was completed the  vendor came to the f.conclusion  that he had made a foolish bargain in not reserving io himself  the coal and mineral frights in  the land sold by hiifi'. So 'he  I. hied.him to the conveyancer who  .drew the deed and requested him  to alter the duplicate original  held by him, so ts to reserve the  coal, at the same time-informing  the1 conveyancer that -it was all  right as. he had arranged the matter with the purchaser. The other day the purchaser attempted  to sell his coal rights but was in  formed- that they were, held by  the vendor and he had' no interest therein. The result was a  hearing in the police court, charging the vendor with altering or  causing to be altered, the agreement of sale, without 'the knowledge or consent; of the purchaser  the lesult was that- the vendor  destroyed the altered document  and-paid-costs. f^   is  I  WHITE WEflRlI  WHITE WEASIT  -*vC7 n ������M**--***v I y*~,H���������~J*  As these Goods have just j  arrived and are rather late, I  we have  marked them at  Clearance Prices,  Children'* White Cotton Draw-era,  front    3������c  n ������������������       Lawn Pinafore.*,  ..from   35w*  L,ad lea* White Underalclrta, from    78e������  "       Coraet Cover**. from   30e*  **      White Night Oowni,      from    7������o.

TROVE was three days In Brier  Dale after he came out of the  ���������woods. The filly was now a  sleek and shapely animal, past  three years of age. He began at once  breaking her to the saddle, and, that  done, mounting, he started for Robin's  Inn. He carried a game rooster In a  sack for the boy Tom. All came out  "with a word of welcome. Even the  small dog grew uolsy with delight.  Tunk Hosely, who had come to work-  for Mrs, Vaughn, took the mare and  led her away, his shoulder leaning with  an added sense of horsemanship. Polly began to hurry dinner, fussing with  the table and changing the position of  every dish until it seemed as If she  would never be quite satisfied. Covered with the sacred old china and table  linen of her grandmother, it had, when  Polly was done with it, a very smart  appearance indeed. Then she called  the boys and bade them wash their  hands and fa**es and whispered a warning to each, while her mother announced that dinner was ready.  "Paul, what's an adjective?" said the  teacher as they sat down.  "A word applied to a noun to qualify  or limit lis meaning," the boy answered glibly.  ''Right! And what adjective would  you apply to this table?"  Tbe boy thought a moment.  "Grand!" said he tentatively.  "Correct!    I'm  going to  have'Just  such a dinner every day on my farm."  '���������'Then you'll have to have Polly too,"  ���������aid Tom innocently.  "Well, you can snare her."  ~iTNb7"sir," the boy answered. "You  ain't good to her. She cries every time  you go away."  Tl'cre was an awkward silence, and  the widow began to laugh and Polly  and Trove to blush deeply.  "Maybe she whispered, an' he give  her a talkln' to," said Paul.  "Have you beard about Ezra Tower?" said Mrs. Vaughn, shaking her  head at the boys and changing the  topic with shrewd diplomacy.  "Much*, but nothing new," said  Trove.  "Well, he swears he'll never cross  the Padden bridge or speak to anybody in Pleasant valley."  "Why?"  "The taxes. He don't believe in improvements, and when he tried to make  a speech in town meeting they all jeered him. There ain't any one good  enough for him to speak to now but  himself an'-au* his Creator."  In the midst of dinner they heard  an outcry in tbo yard. Tom's gamecock had challenged the old rooster,  and the two were looping and striking  with foot and wing. Before help, came  toe old rooster was badly cut in the  neck and breast. Tunk rescued him  and brought blm to the wood shed,  ���������where Trove sewed up his wounds.  Ho had scarcely finished when, there  come *r louder outcry among the fowls.  Looking out they saw a gobbler strid*  ing slowly up the path and leading tbe  giunecock with a ilrm hold on the  back of his neck. Tho whole flock of  fowls wero following, Tho rooster hold  back und camo on with long but unequal strides, Never halting, the turkey led him into Iho full publicity of  tlio open yard. Now the cock was lifted so his foot enme only to tbo top of  tbo grass; now hia head was bent low,  and bis feet fell heavily, Through lt  all the gobbler bore himself with dig*  nlty and firmness, There was no show  of wrath or unnecessary violence Ho  swuug the cock around near the foot  of the maplo tree and walked him back  snd then returned with hlra. Half his  Journey the poor cock was reaching  for the grass and was then lowered  quickly so be bad to wulk with bout  knees,  Again nnd again tbe gobbler walked  up and down with him before the  nnsemhlfttl fin**!* TT<->na -j-ofl gcc:;c  cackled londly nnd clsppwi ihe'r  wings, Applause and derision rose  high each time tbe poor cock swung  around reaching for the grass, but tho  gobbler continued bis even stride, do-  lUtfrfitfJy  fljiij,   as  !t U\,;Hvv],   Ui-juhM-  ���������fully, applying correction to tbe quarrelsome bird. Walking tbe grass tips  bnd begun to tiro those reaching legs.  Tbe cock soon straddled along wltb a  serious eye nnd an open mouth, but tbo  gobbler gave him no rent. When nt  length be released his bold tbe game-  rock )ny weary and wild eyed, with uo  more fight in blm than n bunch of  rag*, doon be rose and ran away and  hid himself In the stable. The culprit  fowl wns then tried, convicted ond  ii-ntcncod to the block.  . "It's il*' Mb of all fiuUw* tbat Uavt  only'a selfish cause," said tli'e fSacher.  He was sitting on the grass, Polly  and Tom and Paul beside him.  "Look here," said he suddenly. 'Til  show you another fight."  All gathered about him. Down  among the grass roots an ant stood  facing a big, hairy spider. The ant  backed away presently and made a  little detour, the spider turning quickly and edging toward him. The ant  stood motionless, the spider on tiptoe,  with daggers drawn. The big, hairy  spider leaped like a lion to its prey.  They could see her striking with the  fatal knives, her great body quivering  with fierce energy. The little ant was  hidden beneath it. Borne uttered a cry  ot pity, and Paul was for taking sides.  "Wait a moment," said the teacher,'  restraining his hand.   The spider had  i begun to tremble in a curious manner.  "Look now,'5 said Trove, with some  excitement.  Her legs had begun to let go and  were straightening stiff on both sides  of her. In a moment she tilted sideways and lay still. They saw a twinkle of black legs and the ant making  off in the stubble. They picked up the  spider's body; it was now only an empty shell. Her big stomach had been  torn away and .lay in little strips and  chuuks down at the roots of the stubble. ,    ,���������  "It's the end of a bit of history,"  said the teacher as he tore away the  curved blades of the spider and put  them in Polly's palm.  "Let's f;ee where the ant goes."  He got down  upon his hands and  knees  and  watched  the   little black  -tigery-now-hurryiiig-for-his���������lF/:irr~In_a"  moment he was joined by others, and  presently they came into a smooth little avenue under the grass..    It took  them into the edge of the meadow,  around a stalk of mullein, where there  were a number of webs.  "There's where she lived���������this hairy  old woman," said the teacher���������"up  there in that tower. See her snares In  the grass���������four of them?"  He rapped on the stalk of mullein  with a stick, peering Into tho dusty  little cavern of silk near the top ot lt.  "Sure enough! Here is where she  lived, for the house la empty and  there's living prey in the snares."  "What a weird old thing!" said Polly.  "Cau you tell.us more about her?"  "Well, every summer," said Trove,  "a great city grows up In tho field.  There are shady streets In it. no wider  than a cricket's back, and millions living In nest and tower and cave and  cavern. Among its people are tollers  and Idlers, laws and lawbreakers,  thieves and highwaymen, grand folk  and plain folk. Hero Is the home of  the greatest criminal In the city of the  field, See!

"It's your move," said she, smiling  aa her glance fell. '  He moved all the checkers.  There came a breath of silence and a  great surge of happiness that washed  every checker off the board and left  the two with flushed faces. Then, as  Mrs. Vaughn was coming downstairs,  the checkers began to rattle Into position.  "I won," said he as the door opened.  "But he didn't play fair." said Polly.  "Children, I'm afraid you're playing  more love than checkers," said the  widow.

"I believe you're afraid of her," said  looking up afbim with a smile.  "I'm only thinking of your welfare,"  said Mrs. Vaughn gently. "Young love  should be stored away, and if it keeps,  why, then It's all right." .     :  "Like preserves!" said Polly soberly,  as if she were not able to see the point.  Against the protest of Polly and her  mother Trove went to sleep in the  Prince   Rupert   Will   Be   a   Meeting  Place for America and Asia.  Up the coast of British Columbia,  there  is  a land-locked    bay  on  the  shores of which a national port is in  the   making.    Interest  was   first  attracted to that spot when the Grand  Trunk Pacific Railway offered a prize  for a name for the western terminus.  Prince Rupert was the name chosen '  and it is to this Pacific port, named j  for a cavalier explorer, that the cur-1  ious gaze of the Canadian public is  turned to-day. <  Prince Rupert is about halfway between Vancouver and Skagway. Here  a "steel-bright arm" of the sea extends inland, encircling Kaien Island  and protected from the sweep of the  ocean by Digby Island. Between these  islands lies the main channel of the  harbor. This inlet is sixteen miles  long, a mile in width, with an average depth of one hundred and fifty  feet, t It has the rare advantage of  a straight entrance. The difference  between high and low tide is twenty-  five feet. As a great continental port  it possesses a wide harbor, with room  for an imposing fleet, an entrance of  easy access and deep water close up  to the shores, with shelter on all  sides.  Stretch of Undulating Land.  The city of Prince Rupert is to be  built on the northern shore of Kaien  Island, well in from the entrance and  near the head" of the island. The Old-  field Range, which attains an elevation of 2,300 feet, runs down the centre of the island forming a picturesque ridge. Between the heights and  the harbor is a stretch of undulating  land about 7,000 feet nVwidth and  along this strip Prince Rupert will be  built.  The neighboring  mainland is called the Tsimpsean Peninsula. The district is well-wooded with an abundance  of red and yellow cedar, spruce and  balsam.      Already on the  shore    of  Kaien Island the city is in. the making.    Engineers and railway officials  are established   in primitive offices,  while navvies, white, Japanese and Indian, are encamped among the trees.  . The lodging-house for the engineering  staff boasts of a "club-room'' on the  I ground floor where newspapers, maga-  | zines and. "My Lady*Nicotine" minister to the comfort of the members.

Returns from 766 division registrars  to the Provincial Board of Health  show that out of a population of 2,**  128,320, or 08 per cent, of the inhabitants of the provinoe, the total number of deaths during February were  2,700, or a rate of 15 per thousand.  The number of cases of contagious  diseAses reported is 93 less than in  February, 1906, and tho number of  deaths are 32 fewer, There was a reduction in the number of deaths from  scarlet fevor, diphtheria, consumption  and whooping cough, Of typhoid fever the number of cases reported wna  277 loss than in 1006, but the number  of deaths was tho same, indicating  that many oases wero not reported.

On a height fronting  the harbor a large hotel is being built.  Even now the wharf affords satisfactory accommodation for steamers.  Prince Rupert is to be solidly constructed from the foundation for it  is to be an abiding city. Wide streets,  a thorough system of drainage and  extensive water supply are among the  provisions already considered. Above  any other British Columbian scene  of the present, it is the spot where  one may "see things growing." Within four years trains from Atlantic  ports will be running into this Pacific  terminus where "all change cars" for  the Orient.

Its  victims are numbered by the thousands. To them life is a burden. Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills have done more  towards relieving this suffering than  any other medicine. Often they ohave  cured after all other help had failed,  as in the case of Mr. Willis Herman,  of St. Catharines, Ont, who says: "1  had been afflicted with indigestion ana  stomach trouble for years. At times  my suffering was almost indescribable.  Sometimes for whole days I was unable to touch food. I'dieted and at  different times was treated by six doctors but they did not help me; I only  grew worse. For a time I was living-  In New York and while there consulted  a specialist but he wad unable to give  me any- relief. I then decided vto try  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and in less  than a month I felt some relief. I continued their use for a. couple of months  longer and gained in weight; my appetite Improved; the pains left me and I  nowfgel better than '��������� 1 have at ainy  "time"durihg the'past twenty-five years.  I will always gladly recommend Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills to other sufferers  believing that they will surely do for  others what they have done ior me."  When you use Dr. Williams' Plnk  Pllls as a blood builder ard nerve tonic  you are not experimenting���������they have  been tried and proved successful in  thousands of cases. It is their "^vver  to, actually make new, rich, red blood  that enables them to cure such fro'-blew  as anaemia, indigestion, rheumatism,  kidney trouble, St. Vitus dance, partial paralysis and those special ailments of girlhood and womanhood that  cause so much misery.

"There is not bo much danger in  handling snakes as persons think. I  have handled snakes for twenty years  and never have been bitten. After you  have studied snakes, their habits and  manner of living, you will have little  fear of them. In fact, I would rather  deal with any kind of a snake than a  tigress, for instance, or a wildcat."  This Uttlo disoourse on snakes wns  made by Otto E. Eggeling. who is well  known in Harlem, and who for many  years, both in Germany and in this  country, has been handling snakes,  procuring them from India, South  America nnd other parts of tho world  for various menageries and zoological  gardens.  Ho was just preparing to ship a box  of rattlesnakes which had come from  the Far West to Berlin, where they  are to be placed on exhibition. Without tho leant trace of fonr Mr, Eggeling nut his hand right in the box, and,  catching ono of the rattlers by tho  baok of tho neck, lifted the reptile  out and held him up for inspection.

Massey, formerly a resident of Toronto, and a well known  'business man, writes'/rom 247 Guy  street, Montreal,   Quebec:  "I wish to testify to the good' results I have derived from the use of  Peruna.  "Having been troubled for several  years' with'catarrh.; of the head, I decided to give Peruna a fair trial, and  I can truly say I have received great  ���������benefit from its use.  "It evidently strikes at the very  root of the trouble and good results  are soon, noticeable.     ��������� ���������  .��������� ;l  "I have also found Peruna a very  valuable remedy for stomach trouble  and   indigestion.  "1 have no hesitancy whatever in  recommending Peruna as a reliable  catarrh remedy,"  There, are several kinds of Indigestion.  The trouble may be due'tvo sluggishness of the liver, derangements of  the bowels, enlargement of the pancreas, or it may be'due to the stomach  itself.  In nearly all cases of stomach indigestion catarrh is the cause. The only  permanent cure is to remove the catarrh.  Peruna has become well known the  world over as a remedy in such cases.

Friesland, the northern province  of Holland, is especially described as  the true paradise of the skater. Its  canals, threading the country in  every direction, are in the winter  months converted into miles upon  miles of ice-clad highways, stretching out in almost every direction as  far as the eye cap see. The milkman,  the butcher, in fact, all of the tradespeople having occasion to travel  through the country, use these ice-  clad canals in going from village to  village.       '  Expert Skaters.  It is only natural that where there  are such tempting stretches of ice the  natives should be expert skaters, and  this is true of the Frisians. The ordinary skater in this country, though  he may have, his own special footgear  for the enjoyment of the sport, always sees to it that the shoes used  are good, stout ones. Not so in Fries-  land. The expert skater there takes off  his shoes and skates in his stocking feet, tho only addition to his footgear being another pair of socks. The  big wooden sabots ordinarily worn  by the Frisian are usually carried  under one arm when he is enjoying  his skating. >  So much do the Frisians think of  their iceclad highways that the authorities in each city and; village,  many clubs and individuals^! unite in.  their efforts to keep them in first-class  condition and free from snow in the  winter months. '  i ,,Use Sleds to Carry Kits.  P jpne of the best mediums for the  trai^sportation of the small kits one  taking a skating trip in Friesland  needs is the rudely but stoutly constructed Frisian sled, which can be  hired at a small outlay. The other expenses can be made equally small.  The food served at the little inns  along the canals is clean and wholesome and the prices for meals are  reasonable.  Then to add to the pleasure of such  a trip, at important crossing points  there are refreshment tents, where an  invigorating drink of hot spiced milk  may be had, or, if the travelers prefer,  there are many cozy little spots along  the line of canals where they may  pause and prepare -their own luncheons on the ice���������in short, it is difficult to conceive of a winter outing affording more healthful pleasure than  skating-through-Frieslandi   ���������tote ot Ohio, City of Toleae,    ' "w - ���������*  Lucas County- ..._-������..

A well-worked and fine seed bed  should be made by using disk and harrow ������ and sometimes roller also. Not  making a seed bed is one of the commonest mistakes of flax growers. The  seed is best sown usually with a presa  drill and to the depth of 1 1-2 to 21-2  inches ordinarily, according to the nature of the land. About three pecks i  of seed per acre are enough, a larger |  quantity being sown on worn land tiian  ou land in good condition.

A lawyer in the Indian Tereitory  named McGann was the attorney for a  farmer who had killed a neighbor.  McGann got the man out on bail on the  plea of justifiable homicide or something of the kind, and the farmer immediately took his gun and killed the  chief witness against him.  Naturally Jthis nettled tbe sheriff and  the judges, and they offered $300 reward for the murderous farmer. "Say,**  said McGann to the sheriff, "will yon  ���������give me that reward if I get him?"  "Yes," the sheriff replied, and McGann  rode out to tbe biding place of his  client  Tbe farmer came up, and McGann  , shot blm, took the body back to town  land demanded the reward. "How  [about this, McGann T asked another  ! lawyer. "Do you think It is in accord-  jance with the ethics of the legal profession to take advantage of your cli-  ! ent in that manner?" "Ethics be blow-  ;edr snorted McGann. "I killed him in  ! another case."���������Exchange.  Pen-  Anglo  Underwear   1  has the soft  warm     feel*'  the skin enjoys.  Doesn't    itch.  .

BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  ELLOW8, I've a Jim  dandy piece of news  for this society," said  Rod Crowning-shield at  the first meeting of the  S.G. T. C. for 1906. "I'll  give you three guesses  as a club. If any one catches on I'll set  him up to peanuts, but if all fail, the  society will waive my dues for this year  and blow me to a dozen fried oysters at  Scotty's."  "Yes, we will!"  "Watch us!"  "Nice set of suckers you must think  ua."*  "Your odds are too easy, Roddy, my  son; give us something worth while!"  were the derisive yells that greeted this  astounding proposition.  The S. G. T. C. had transferred its  regular Friday sessions of arrangement  from the coach in the Crowningshield  barn to the large, old-fashioned attic of  the Wainwright home.  Barton Wainwright, long since recovered from the sprain which followed his  brave rescue of Rod's life at Mr. Stanton's chstnuttlng party in October, was  now one of the most popular members  of the society that had once refused  him admittance. His hated title of  Sissy was never heard after that exciting afternoon. *������������������������������������������������������  that way. How many can go, and who'll  make a move that we put off our skating contest till next Saturday?"  "Honest Injun, Rod, we don't know  what you're driving at," said Barton.  Much delighted tnat all his news had  not fallen fiat, Rodney announced:  "The bob is to be initiated to-morrow, and Mrs. Hempstead has asked  us all to a chicken and waffle Supper at  Oakdale. We are to go out in Carter's  omnibus sleigh, and coast all the afternoon and evening. It is full moon and  Bill says the hill is out of sight-  smooth as glass, and there's gorgeon-  bumpers." 0  "Susy goin'?" slyly asked Jack Peter*-,.  "Yes, she is; and so is Marian, so I  suppose you'll refuse," replied Rod, with  a grin'at Jack, whose devotion to pretty Marian Tempest was a standing joke.  Just then there was a knock at the  door, and the maid brought in a huge  plate of doughnuts and a box of fudge.  "Before we fall to," said Rod, "I appoint Bart a committee of one to write  Mrs. Hempstead that the S. G. T. C.  accepts with  pleasure."  The next day was clear and bitter-  cold; but young blood does not freeze  easily, and sweaters and caps kept  every one toasty warm.  The new bob, easily holding a dozen,  was "a beaut," as Rod declared���������a bril-  *   *������������������  "Chuck it all, Rod, we're,not going to  guess on those terms of yours, so you  might as well spit out your news, or  you'll burst with holdingit," laughed  Ben Newton, who knew Rod's Inability  to keep a secret, especially if it meant  an outing for his beloved "Saturday  Good Time Club."  "Well, gentlemen, since you insist���������  Bill Hempstead has a new bobsled���������a  beaut!"  A chorus of jeers followed this announcement.  "Get on to the band wagon, Rod.  Your news was announced to this honorable body precisely fifteen minutes  ago. You would be a gay deceiver and  escort a lady home from school, when  you should have been presiding over  this Important conference, would you?"  said Tag Smith, giving Rod a friendly  punch that sent him rolling headlong  on the old cot.  Looking very much crestfallen, Rod  said: "Well/what are you going to do  about it? Accept?"  "Accept what?" asked the boys,  "Oh, eome off!   You can't draw me  Down the Hill on a Sled  liant scarlet,  with strong > brakes and  steering gear.

'��������� Bill steered splendidly, and there were  no   accidents   toi mar   the   pleasure,  though several loads came to grief at  the second bumper, and Hen Newton,  coasting on a small sled, ran himself  head first into a snow-bank and had to  be pulled out by the heels."  Any one but old Dinah would have  been appalled by the appetites brought  to supper, but, as she said to relieve  Mrs.   Hempstead's  fears  of  too  few  *wn ffltQS ���������  "Doan you fret yoiise'f, honey; this  chile ain't cooked fer a boy's acad'mie  twenty years fer nuffin.

Even a contest for the champion waffle eater, in which Rod, the winner, acknowledged himself stalled at twenty-  four, did not exhaust that batter.  The evening coasting was jollier than  ever; and the boys and girls would actually havo traveled that hill all night  had not Mrs. Hempstead reminded them  Sunday was not far oft.

CARD parties are one of the most  popular forms of entertainment  all over this country. We grow  tired of all other games after a  while, but cards seem to be of perennial  interest.  Notes of Invitation can be written, or  the summons may take the shape of a  visiting card, with the date and the  word "Cards" written in the lower corner. The former style of invitation is  used for the smaller affairs, the latter  for the more elaborate. The notes  should be something like this, varied ,of  course, to suit the occasion:  172 Arch street,  My dear Mrs. Brown:  Will you and Mr. Brown join us on  Thursday evening next in a game of  progressive euchre? We want lo have  eight tables, and do hope you will not  disappoint us.  Cordially yours,  M'ARGARBT  SMITH.  March the eighteenth.  Card parties begin about S or half past.  Before the guosts arrive, arrange the  card tables in the drawing room and  put a pack of cards on eaoh. It is  usual to write upon every score card  the number of the table and the seat  at the table of each player, as "Table 2,  l No. 4." Divide these into separate piles,  being careful to have but two cards  from each table in a pile, and place  them on separate trays. When the guests  come down from the dressing rooms,  request the ladies to select their scores  from one tray and the gentlemen from  another; thus every one can find his  partner and his table with very little  confusion. .'.-������������������'  Supper can be either served after the  games are finished and the prizes awarded, or, and this is rather the better  way, it can be served in an intermission,  in which case the guests remain seated  where they chance to be at the time,  while the servants bj-ing in small white  tablecloths aud cover each table and  rapidly arrange the few pieces of silver  required for the simple supper, which  can consist of oysters, boned turkey or  salad, ice cream and cake, with black  coffee, lemonade or claret cup.  If, after the supper has been enjoyed,  conversation, music or some other diversion is to be the- order of the day, or,  rather, the evening, then the refreshments should be served in the dining  room, either at small tables or from the  buffet.  The newest fad at card parties is for  all who haye not taken prizes to draw  for the "booby" instead of giving it to  the worst player in the room.

T  HERB are two ways of serving  roasts���������one   where    carving   is  done  on  the  dinner  table,   the  other where it is done at  the  side table by the waitress.  If carving is done on the dinner table,  the maid should otand at the carver's  left and take away each plate as he  lays a piece of meat upon it. In the  proper order of helping she sets the first  down before the host's right-hand  guest, and then continues on around the  table from that point.  While the diners are discussing the .  roast and vegetables the maid stands  quietly, but watchfully, near the hostess, observing quickly when any one  seems ready for a second helping, and  promptly removes plates of those who  lay down the knife and fork.  Salad being the last course In our little menu before dessert, when all the  plates have been removed she clears  the table of everything belonging to  that part of the dinner already served,  but leaves all decorations, bonbons and  other little dainties,  Of course, all glasses remain until the  dinner is over. At this time the large  napkin at the carver's place and the one  under the soup tureen are taken away  so carefully as not to drop a single  crumb. This Is done by first putting  eaoh of the four corners toward the  centre of the napkin nnd then deftly  gathering It up, while keeping the corners in the napkin's centre, nnd allowing no part to fall open,  when tho table is free from all signs  of the dinner and In perfect order lt Is  "* ready for the dessert, whatever It may  be. In bringing the plates, already arranged for this part of the dinner on  the side table, she should be careful to  set each one down with the knife side  of the plate at the right of eneh person;  Toy so doing everything else will be in  Its proper place; tho fork at the left,  the spoon across the front of the plate.  Each porson-when the plates are before all���������quietly sets the finger bowl on  the tablu in front of the plate nnd the  dolly, at the same time between  the  Jiowl and the tablecloth, taking up as  Ittlo room as possible with individual  convenience and never Intruding upon  the neighbor's apace at right or left,  The dessert la then passed in tho same  way aa all that haa already been  ���������erved.

It la  pertinent and practical: I  To the woman who complains that her  butter tastea "flat," 1 would say 1 suspect  that she washes the butter too much, or possibly she does not put in enough salt. I get  extra prices for my butter, and 1 think I  may give a few pointers on the subject.  xou answer truly that age gives cream  and butter a bad flavor. Then the cow's  food is an important matter, a -weedy  pasture affects the taste of the milk. Pure  drinking water is another desideratum. The  milk must be kept in a cool, odorless* place,  When it "loppers','���������or, as I was taught to  call it in my childhood, "clabbcrs"-8klm  . off the cream before it sours. If sweet, un-  loppered cream be added, put them well together and let them stand until the sweet  cream has thickened. If you have enough  cream for a dally churning, the butter will  be of a finer quality than if the cream be  kept for some days. Let everything be  scrupulously clean. Then be cure that the  cream does not get too warm. If you have  no cellar, set the jar of cream in fresh  water, changing this often enough to reduce  the temperature to as low a point as may  be without, peril to the butter-making properties. Cream for churning should never be *���������  warmer than 60 degrees.  While churning never pour in either hot or  cold.water. Warm or chill the cream from -  the outside ot the churn. When the butter  begins to "come" continue to churn gently ,  ' until the flakes gather into a mass. If all  is right, Itswill leave the handle almost clean  and collect to Itself all floating particlee.  I use a wooden paddle and a wooden bowl  to handle and hold the butter.   I scald, then  rub them with salt, and All the bowl with  cold water while I am churning.  In taking ,  up the butter, press it against the side of  the churn to squeeze out the milk.   Empty  the chilled bowl of water and put the butter Into it. draining oft all the milk.   Then  work the butter into a thin sheet against the  sides of the bowl so as to get rid of every  drop of buttermilk.   Sprinkle the thin, firm  sheet���������compact and close-grained���������with fine  salt, allowing an ounce to each pound of butter. Work the butter with the paddle down  into the bottom of the bowl, doubling and  folding it upon itself. If this part of the worn  be  properly  done,  you can get  out  every  drop of buttermilk without overworking it.  Too much  kneading spoils the flavor ana  makes the butter waxy.   If rightly handled  and carefully salted, the butter will be oi  uniform color.   Streaked butter means uneven kneading and unskilful salting.  Form the butter into compact rolls, or  pack in, jars, as you like. Exclude the air  and you will have firm, sweet butter, ft  these directions have been observed.  AN OLD HOUSEKEEPER <Bloomington,  111.). .  Hints on Sweeping  _JDp housekM*iers_wJhoJ^have_much~sweep-���������  ing To do know that by using a soft cloth  and plenty of clean water (with  or without  ammonia in it), their ./oris, would be materially lessened?  Wring out the cloth in the Jwater and'wipe  the carpet, a breadth at a time, rinsing the  cloth often to get out the dirt, instead of  spreading it on the carpet.  Then, with brush and dUBtpan, or broom, *  brush up what litter may be left. .  The carpet will be cleaner, the work will  be lighter and the wnoie process is far  more sanitary than the old way, for there  will be no dust to fly into the nose and  throat. ,  Try it and see, how much more quickly  you- can get the work done and how much  better the carpet will look.  In explanation of this letter, let me say  that I have received so much pleasure, as  . well as profit, from your interesting Corner  that I am moved to offer a small contribution to it.    [(   M. A. H. (Warren, (R. I.)  Make the small contribution larger  next time.  Your method of carpet cleaning is  admirable for the young or the Bllm.  For the elderly and the stout, it would,  I fear, be more laborious than the old  way. When ono takes on flesh with  years, the blood has an uncomfortable  habit of mounting to the head when  one stoops or bends over. May I offer,  as an amendment to your motion, that  in such circumstances the cloth may be  fastened to a broom handle and UBed  from a standing position? My hardwood floors are swept with a broom,  enveloped in a stout red flannel bag.  Could not some such device be resorted  to by our elderly or our overplump  housemother?  Perhaps some of our readers knew In  her youth Miss Scdgewlck's excellent  domestic story, "Live and Let Live,"  Ono of "Luoy'a" employers insisted  upon having hor carpets swept with a  hand-br-iBh-what we now call "o whisk  broom." Lucy spent an hour daliy upon  her knees at this work.  "It raises no dust," aald the mlatresa,  "and gets all tho corners clean. It  doesn't wear out the carpet as a broom  dooB,  And nothing Is tho worse for It,"  "Except my clothes, ma'am," ventured Lucy, showing a hole In the front  of her well-saved frock,  Scrubbing has Its disadvantages, A  sensible correspondent suggests that a  low, padded Btool bo used to save tho  clothes nnd tho kneea of scrubwomen,  It Ib moved at need, aa the worker de*  aires, Will some one carry the idea Into  'xocut'on and tell ua how it worksT  A Few Favors Returned  Here are a few helps, In partial return for  benefits received from the Exchange:  1.

(Blue Island, V.l.%    (*  To Prepare Hulled Corn    I  Some one asked how  to  prepare  bulleti"**  com;  Simply boll  shelled  corn in   strong   *-*���������*���������>���������  - water until  the  hulls  can be   rubbed   of***  easily,   then  wash   through  many  water**-,  rubbing between the hands to remove the-  hulls.   Leave the corn In water over night  to  remove  the  taste  of   the   lye.   In thai-  morning put it on to cook in an abundance-  of cold water and boil steadily all day, adding water as needed  (use a granite kettle),   and  stirring  occasionally   to  prevent,  burning.  When* the corn is thoroughly done, prepare as you would hominy, using a little*>  cream and butter, salt, etc. lt Is an old-  fashioned dish, and the thought of it takes-.  tne back to my childhctod home among the*  Alleghany Mountains, where ham and hominy, buckwheat cokes and maple syrup*  formed part of the biil-of-farc In every'  farmhouse. Other memories are aroused���������  the "apple parings," where all the neighbors pared and quartered apples until midnight, when they v/ound up wltb a supper-  of wonderful dimensions, and then danced  until morning. . .'  It;was a simple, homely life in many respects, but the people seemed to get more*,  out of it and lived longer than we do In-  these strenuous times, when wo seem to fall  over each other in order to reach that lntan--  glble something that we are wearing our -  lives away for. E. W. G. (Chicago).  Your letter is charming throughout,,  and I strike hands with you in the tender memories of "a day that is dead."  We love to live, over the early life, enjoyed as one always enjoys what is new  and fresh. There is a subtle, dewy  fragrance about the reminiscences of  childhood like the breath of wild ftow**  ���������era: ��������� *~ ~  But���������I do not agree with you that tar  former days were Better than these.  The world is better and wiser than ii.  was fifty years ago. And���������here we differ again!���������people live and work longer  than they lived and labored then. The  average of human life has gained five  years in the last half century. We  work strenuously, but we comprehend*.  and obey the laws of health as oue  forefathers and mothers never dreamed of doing. The saying that "there*  are no old people nowadays" has a  stout substratum of truth.  "The happiest time is NOW!" Lay  this beautiful truth to heart, and that  world will wear a different face.  No words from the poet's heart an*S  pen rise oftener to my lips than Whlt-.-  tler's brave "Life Psalm": ,     ,  And so the shadows fall apart*  And so the west wind*, play;  And all the chambers of my hearte*.  I open to the day.  U  Removing Stains  w  HEN a stain proves unusually  obstinate and absolutely refuses;  ��������������� ������ to come out by ordinary methods, wet the spot thoroughly and then  cover with dry chloride of lime. Let It  remain a few moments, rubbing well-  with the finger meanwhile, and then  rinse until, all the lime Is out, It will,  generally be found that the stain tat*  gone also. If not, apply again. A second application will remove anythl-*'*''*  that is removable,  Owing to the nature of the remed***,  however, it is far botter to make a  second application than to leave tho first  ono on until the stain Im all gone, Tha  chemical action of tho lime, removes m  portion of tho internal fibro of tho  material and thus eats up the stained!  part, Tho proportion of *lbre thua removed Is ao small as to do no Injury,  but, If left on too long, the lime will  Insinuate Itself, taking a strong hoia,  and finally bite through the fabric, or  weaken it so it will soon wear In hole*.
