The  men   especially  drink ,4he beverage in large quantities  and all   day- long and at a strength  whicii would make the cue of a  lea  drinking Chinaman  curl.    On Sunday  morning tbe tea drinker starts with a  clqan pot and a clean record.   The pot  is hung over the Are, with a sufficiency  of water in it for the day's brew, and  when this is boiled he pours into it  enough of the fragrant herb to produce  a deep coffee colored liquid. '" |  On Monday, without removing yesterday's, ten leaves, be repeats the process,  on   Tuesday   the   same,   likewise   on  Wednesday,   and  so   on   through   the  week.   Toward the close of tho seven  days  the pot is filled  with an acrid  mash;'of tea .leaves, out of which the  tea 3s- squeezed by the pressure of a  'tin cup.    By this time the tea i3 the  color,of  rusty   Iron,  incredibly  bitter'  and/ disagreeable   to   the   uneducated'  palate.    The natives call it "real good  old post and rails," the simile being obviously drawn from n stiff and dangerous jump, and regard it as having been  brought to perfection.  In the first place, don't find fault���������  '   that is, do not complain or wbine or  j   nag.    Do not say: "Mary, I don't se������  j   why you can't remember.    I am sure  .   I get tired  of telling  you again and  :  again.   Now, if I were in your place,"  I   etc.,  whereupon  Mary replies saucily,  I   and there is a scene from which you  depart incensed, yet humbly, lest Mary  leave then and there.  Guard your tone.  Be firm and businesslike, but cheerful  Impart an air of finality to your re  marks.    "It would please me to have  you do so and so" or "I think it would  be  better  that this  be done  In  tin's  way."    If it is said kindly, but firmly,  it   usually   commands   respect   audi  moreover, gives little occasion for reply.    Finally, don't always enter thej  kitchen with a complaint.    It creates  an   unpleasant  relation   between  em  ployed and employer.���������Boston 'Cooking  Magazine.  iSjme Pare Good News.  Good News if you,wish a, Sat'sfymg Gift for a Housekeeper.

THE ROMAN ARENAS.  TJicy Were Not r.Ieie niiss.i, aa <tUmmm  ,    at Hie Jlcdcnji Cii-cun.  The  arenas  of ancient Rome were  not, -'as'some   people   suppose,   mere  rings or' ovals, such as* may  be seen  in'   the - modern   circus.     They   were  broken up and varied in character according to the nature of the fighting,  to'be.done or to the caprices of those  in autbo-ity.' On onc occasion an arena  might resemble the Numidian desert,  oa another the garden of Hesperide3,  ��������� thick set with groves of trees and rising mounds, while again it pictured the  (great rocks and caves of Thrace.  With   these   surroundings  tbe   combatants advanced,  retreated, encircled  their adversaries, or, kept wild beasts  at bay as occasion offered or as their  courage or fear suggested.    Men combated not only with the more common  brutes, but with such monsters as elephants,   rhinoceroses,   hippopotamuses  and   crocodiles.     On   oilier   occasions  flocks of game, such as deer and war  ostriches, were abandoned to the multitude,  and  in  some cases the   arenas  could be turned into lakes, filled with  I monsters of the deep, and upon the sur-  I face of whicii naval engagements took  place.  No Notion of Real Trouble.  "I bet I get into more trouble than  any man in this state," volunteered the  young fellow who had come in the clubhouse. "Nothing in' the trouble line  overlooks me. Why, I'd be afraid to  marry"���������  "What! Ain't you married?" ejacu>  lateel tbe red nosed elderly party who  was hovering over tbe gratis lunch.  "Boy, you don't know what trouble is."  , Cliailly.  She���������I'm glad we went. It was an  excellent performance���������and for such a  charitable purpose. Her Husband-  Yes, indeed!

If you've an extremely limited pocket-  book. It depends entirely for what  purpose you choose your gown whether  or not It should last.  A fairly safe rule to go by is that the  staple sort of clothes, made in conservative ways, should be bought with a  very distinct idea of "long life" and  that evening gowns, especially if you're  a good deal of a butterfly, should be  got with almost the sole idea of effect.  We've all known the unpleasant sensation of putting too much money in a  gown and then feeling /hat we must  "get the wear out of it'' even though  It be a conspicuous style or soils at its  first wearing.    And tbe woman  with  little  money  is  the  one  who  suffers  most of all in suctr an experience. ���������  |    Evening gowns oughtn't to last too  long; business and street clothes can't  ! ���������always   supposing   it's   the   woman  with the small purse who is. considering tbe purchase.    And street clothes  ' Bbould be of quiet, rather neutral colors  j ���������the kind "you don't get known by,"  as one woman put it.  Afternoon'gowns get bard wear���������as  hard as the street clothes in reality���������  so they should naturally be made of  materials that can hold their own and  yet not stretch nor shrink nor get out  _ of shape. They must be got to last,  I for the "set" and tbe "bang" must last j  as lorrg as the gown. j  I    And  furs!    The  woman  who   can't'  afford  to  have changes made in the  style oC her fur coat or her ueck piece j  and muff doesn't'want to put all her I  money in an extreme, unusual fur piece,  Which by its. very individuality is likely  to "go out" in a short time, but should  stick  to  the  most   conservative   furs,  made   up   In. the   most   conservative  ways.  After all, conservatism, not cost, is  the greatest help in eking out a small  clothes allowance, and conservatism  consists as much in having an inexpensive little gown that is put on and  worn out soon and replaced as in getting things that last ovei-long.���������Philadelphia North American.
