It is a'great  whitcner, as well as a dirt remover.  Stains like iron rust, very difficult to remo'.e, ..are caused by the  chemical ingredients of inferior blue  mixing .with tho starch during ' the  process of laundering, and producing  an iodide. Moral: Prepare bluing  at home from good materials.  Equal parts of ammonia and spirits of turpentine will remove paint  from clothing no matter how, hard  and dry it lias become. . Saturate  the spot, then wash with soap suds  and rinse.  To'take stains out of bedticking,  (r-pioad a. paste of "soft soap and  starch on the spots. When dry,  scrape off and 'wash with a damp  sponge. Tn washing a chamois skin  vest or chest protector, put a little  pinch of soda in warm water,  use soap ns'usual. Thc soda  vents it from "becoming still. '  Black sateen, or woolen, or  black,,or 'black and white mourn-  'm-r wash  goods,  should always,     if  -' starched,     be     ironed     lirst on "the  ' wrong side, the right side down on  a black' cotton ironing sheet (a  breadth of old black' calico or ' well  washed cambric will do). No isia.1/-  ter how" carefully black starched  goodsj are done' vsp, it will have a  whitish scum on it if ironed-on a  white ironing 'sheet. ' Wash ��������� clean,  rinse very thoroughlyp'put through  strong bluing water and' hang up till  perfectly 'dry. Then cold starch with  one of 'the excellent cold starches  found in most groceries.' , Roll up  tightly, fold a thick cloth around  it, and leave over night. ' If very,  wet in the morning, shake out and  let a little of the .moisture evapor-  ' nie, ���������   but     iron     while still    quite,  damp.    Tf too wet when'ironed,, thc  starch may stick. . It is much    better to cold starch goods over night.  , 1/ a gloss on thc right side is desired, a.s should, be'on sateen, when  the whole garment has been ironed  on the wrong side, turn on the right  side and iron the, dry garment rapidly with a rather hot iron. This  will give it just- the kind ofipolish  it had when new. ,  Many prefer for fine muslins, dimities,- and dark  cambrics, gum arabic  ' instead of starch. Wash and dry  the' garment.' Dissolve one ounce of  gum arabic in a'Jittle cold water,  then pour on just enough hot water  ; as is needed to wet the dress. For1  shirt waists use about one quart  to one ounce of gum arabic.   ,'For a  .large, dress, use two ounces of thc  gum arabic.    '       v *",>,..  . Common brown soap, rubbed thoroughly into a cloth", i.s used in some  kitchens instead of wax, salt or0any  of' the other things said to be good  for siiloothing flatirons.

Eighty-Nine Factories in Germany  . Making It'.  A- report from United States Consul Maswi, at Lerlin, gives details  of the Ocruian industiy 01 manufacturing luel known as briqueites  from brown coal, carbonized peat,  coal dust, etc. hiv. Mason says that  at thc close of l'JOO there were in  Germany 81) manufactories of fuel  briquettes, some of which annually  produce more than 100,000 tons  each. The processes employed in  Fiance and Germany have long'passed the experimental' stage' and bo.--  conic a'standard commercial industry.  "If Anrerjcans," says Mr. .Mason,  "are really interested in the subject  there is no need that, they should  lisk^any large sums ol money in  uncertain experiments. They have  only to study thc machinery and  methods employed in ��������� European  countries, compare their crude materials with, thohe found and used  here, and they can thus start at the  point of technical knowledge which  Europeans have readied after many  ye;u s of experience.  "There are experienced engineers  and a-do/.cn manufacturers .of briquette making machinery who would  gladly co-operate in these tests, and  would  yVU!-:..\rJ>SII MACHINERY  adapted to working, the material  thus. . technically oelined., Upon . a  basis of such tests, plans ynd estimates ~-toiild be.obtained I'or the  erection of plants with specified  daily capacity."  Mr. Mason gives the names and  addresses of a number of German  firms engaged in the business. He  says ' that briquette works are divided in respect to tlie material  employed into two general classes���������  viz., those which rrjake briquettes  from brown coal ' (lignite) or carbonized peat., with or without the  addition, of a bituminous matrix or  binder, and, second, those which use  as a basic material coal dust or  slack���������the  waste of soft coal  mines.  Several processes have recently  been invented and patented by  which artificial coal or briquettes  have been more or less successfully  produced from peat by thc application of machinery or methods not  yet fully established on' nn industrial  basis. There arc "described, by Mr.  Mason..   The report.concludes :  "Turf briquettes- ordinarily, contain about GG per cent, of inflammable elements, the rcuiuigdcr being  made up" of inorganic ash and water.  They aro thus inferior as fuel ,to  briquettes made from brown coal,  which average 70 per cent, or more,  of inflammable matter. Both represent in their present form thc utmost that science has been able to  do in utilizing inferior and otherwise almost worthless materials ,to  supplement and eke out the .insufficient coal supply ot Eujppean coun-.  triea."- ������������������  Who  Says the Modern System ' of  Milling Is Entirely to  Elaine.  Change's in milling processes are  responsible for appendicitis, according to a physician who has been in  the practice of medicine for fifty  years* and who has observed the  spread of the disease. This physician, Dr. \r II. C. Howard of Champaign, III. 'asserts that until the trade  demand for exceedingly white flour  changed the methods of grinding  wheat there was no appendicitis.  To prove this assertion the physician points to thc fact that where  coarse breads are used thc- disease is,  unknown, but that as soon as the  fine breadstuff!* are introduced appendicitis comes along as a sequence.  By this reasoning it is shown that'  the people of agricultural communities who secured their (lour from tlie  small mills did not have thc disease  until the small mills were crowded  out by the larger ones and fine  white Hour,supplanted thc coarse.  Then the negroes of the fouth so  long as they ate corn bread were  free from the disease, but when tlie  new process flour began to be used  the disease came among them. The  same results attended thc departure  of thc German folks from their  coarse bread 'to the refined (lour.  DISEASE. JiAKE BEFORE 1S75,  '" I can remember that prior to  about 1875," said I)r; Howard,  "that,there was little or none of the  ailment among thc people. In 2o  years of practice among the people  before that time 1 do not think I  saw more than 40 cases of appendicitis-:   1 Now they are common. ���������  "Large and extended changes in  the diet, of people has contributed to  this. Eor example, about the date  mentioned there began to be a. general change from the old, method 'of  grinding grain to the present method'of roller, mills and excessively  line bolting cloths. This' plan of  milling began first in the large cities/  and api>cndicitis began to vincrease  there. Later the new process crowded out the small mills in the country, and the people-could not get  Hour made ��������� by tho old processes.  They .bought products of the large  milling establishments, and, then the  farmers began-to have appendicitis;'  "Still thc negroes of the south did  not have it,' but in time they began  to get away from their ..plain ��������� corn  bread, and,they,' too, .began to have  appendicitis.. So it' goes. They did-  not/ have appendicitis-in Germany  until " they > began to cat fine flour  and put in the new process ofo milling after our. fashion. Now., they"  have appendicitis in Germany 'just  as we do.  DISARRANGES. ORGANS.  "Experienced millers 'will tell, you  that" thc fine flour is a less desirable'  (lour than that made by the old process, but the trade .dtms^nds it chiefly on account, of its whiteness'. 'On  account of its indigestibility tho disarrangement of the digestive organs  of the people "eating it 'has greatly  increased. , The prime cause 'df appendicitis i.s found in this disarrangement.

A strange story comes from the  little town of Candete, in the' southeast of Spain. {The people of thc  district have been complaining for  \ears past-that they are over-taxed.  Lately they determined to pay no  more taxes to the Government, and  when they heard that' the tax collectors were about to visit tlie plaeo  they formed a procession to the pub-,  lie square, headed by the mayor, and  there publicly burnt all the tax papers. When the collectors arrived  they were driven ofT with sticks and  stones. But such lawlessness could  not be left unpunished. A week or  two later a battalion,of cavalry descended suddenly upon tiie town and  arrested , every grown man in tho  place. They were only released upon 'paying the taxes and the costs of  the proceedings, besides an indemnity  to the injured tax gatherers.        '        ���������  Candete is not the oniy town  whose inhabitants have got into 1  trouble over the - question of taxes*."  No fewer than 8,000 warrants havo  just been issued in the French Department of the Eos-tern Pyrcncs,  and that number of householders  have been arrestee!. These includo  the heads of almost'every'family in  five different townships. .This wholesale legal action is the direct ' result of the present low price of wine.  The arrested men are all wine growers, who have refused to pay theii'  taxes as a protest against a refusal '  on the'part'of the Government to  give  them   financial   assistance.  ,   A  SIBERIAN TOWN- '    I  ih the district of Smcinsk, possessing the extraordinary name of Schc-  nionajcws-koje, was' temporarily depopulated , two years' ago.

Where  thc  baby'gets  Jiis  inclination     and  his  bravery is  not   known,     but he gets his opportunities      because     his uncle, Harrv  IJavios,  is a well-known  snake     fancier.     The baby enjoys nothing moro  than    -'to     play    with    some of the  harmless snakes which his uncle will  allow him -   to  handle.     Thc uncle's  favorite reptile is the rattlesnake ���������  probably because there is an element  of danger  in handling  them.      This  fancy has cost Mr. Davies seven bites  already,  but each time he has wrapped his arm tightly (0 shut oil    circulation   and  has  sucked   the poison  from the wound, feeling no ill cITccts.  There  will be  no more rattlesnake  bites inflicted    by   his  collection    of  snakes for the present, at least,     a.s  the last of his    favorites was killed  recently in an encounter with a bull  snake'.'     Ho     himself   saw the fight,  but he allowed it to proceed  loo far  to save the rattler after  it was     in  the coils- of ils -antagonist.  Ordinarily the  rattler' should have  proven  more than  a match  for * tlio  bull, but in this case it becamo   excited over the queer mnnoeuvcrs     of  the'other snake and "lost, its head."'  When Mr. Davios. observed the conflict the rattler was coiled ready  to  strike and both snakes were flashing  tongues     at each  other.     Tho  bull kept well out, of range'and sim-f  ply circled around, the rattler, seeming- to, watch for an opening.     This  circular  movement  finally  frightened  tho rattier and it uncoiled and     endeavored to glide away.0    Thai   was  the   bull's     opportunity,   and before  the, rattler could coil again it    had  been seized just back of the neck and  was   in     the coils of the bull.     Mr.  jolTy^i^tvios ran'     to    rescue J lis favorite,  but before ho could bo of service the  bull straightened  out its  coils     and  he could feel the bones of the rattler  crack as thoy pulled out of place.

For instance. tho going of most  watches varies according to- the temperature at <wliich they are,kept.  Consequently, if you wear a watch  next ,,to your.body during the clay,  and at night put il on a cold marble mantelpiece, or, in fact, anywhere in a cold room, the watch is  sure cither Ho g-ain or lose.' Cold  causes contraction of tho metals  composing the balance-wheel, and its  parts, and tho watch consequently  gains. When the parls expand .under the heat of the body, the pivots,  bearings, etc., tighten tup and i thc  watch loses. Of course, this is not  the case with watches having a compensating balance���������that is, made of  different metals that both expand  and contract under tho influence -of  cold, so that the expansion of the  one counteracts the contraction of  tho'other. ���������'  Getting the steel parts of one's  watch magnetized is another frequent  cause "of trouble; while changing thc  position of a watch, such as put-  Ling it down horizontally,, i.s also  apt Lo affect its action.  It Is well -known ihat a watch will  slop for some unexplained reason  and go on -again iril is given a  slight jolt. Tlic same trouble may  nol recur for years. This is duo to'  the delicate hairspring catching either in' Ihe ,hairspring-stud or in the  regulator-pins. Tlio ciuise is a sudden jump or quick movements'which  gives a.jolt to thc balanco-whool and  hairspring, and' thus renders the  catching possible. Tlio jolt must  come at a particular fraction of a  second, during the revolution of the  balance-wheel, otherwise the spring  will not catch, and so the odds  against this . happening arc very  great.

One of these bricks soaked for ten  or fifteen' seconds in kerosene will  burn for half aii hour and give out  heat sufficient'to warm a room, ' or,  if placed in a stove, sufficient to  cook a meal.

For a dinner of roast  meats, vegetables, boiled meats,  puddings, etc.. use five or six bricks  in relays. A day's washing or ironing, which at present price of fuel  threatens to be more expensive, can  be done with the oiled brick fuel at  ii cos't of 20 cents. It will take little more trouble lo replenish a fire  with oiled bricks every half hour  or so than it dons to keep up a coal  lire.

They ,   are     grooved and porous, so  they absorb the oil rapidly.    In  this  bath of kerosene the brick was rolled  and the, oil permitted to saturate it.  it was then  taken from the tin and  placed      in     an    ordinary     cooking  stove.

And I went, meaning in my rage���������  for I, too,' had become furiously angry  c, ��������� to take him at his word aud-walk  straight out of the bouse. But custom  , is strong. The spirit of subordination,  of obedience, the soldierly sense of  duly, when ouee Imbibed', are not to be  shaken off-'lu'a second. When I regained my desk and saw tbe papers  there, I remembered that I was bound  In honor to fulfill my obligations. My  chief bad, no doubt, gone too far, but  that did not release-me. Before I took  any further steps I must first complete my work. "  There was uot much wanting to finish my report on the Canadian frontier, and I did it out of hand.' Then I  sent it In to the chief aud prepared to  tackle tbe second set of papers, which  "proved to be a scheme, marked "strict-'  ly confidential," for a combined attack  upon Now York by sea aud land. (Our  , political relations ��������� at that particular  moment were greatly strained. There  were rumors of grave disagreement, if  nothing worse.)

However, it must come sooner or later, so I scribbled a few words on a  6heet of foolscap and went In.

Bright  sunshine bad already succeeded the always fugitive storms in, his hasty  temperament.     Y ,-  "This will do lirst rate, Wood. There  are only one or two points that need  amplification," and we went over the  items together.     , ,   -  Then I asked him about the ctlior  matter, and soon heard ail I wanted to  know. I can set down nothing of this  here; for the whole affair was -very  secret and particular���������of vital Interest  - to two great countries���������and Slr.Charles  Impressed it ou nie very earnestly that  tl/e paper anil plans must on no account pass out of my posst'sslon.  "You may have to work on thu  scheme at your owu diggings, for It  must go iu by (lie end of the week. But  pray be most careful.

"Then you advise nie to leave the  service, sir?"  "Of course you must leave," ho roared with sudden fury. "What, a' captain in the army with a .hundred and  fifty thousand,a 3-0.11*!
