A New Kind of Stousu Trap.
Ono of Bt. Nicholas' young peoplo, In n

Dear Jack I want to tell you about n now

Trade Recipe for h Silver Cleaner.
The following "silver cloanor" U said to be
aeeordtng to tho formula of one of tho boat
sliver manufacturing companies of tho coun
try: Dissolve one pound bt Spanish whiting
la water nnd let it settle ; then pour off the
top so the grit will lie freed. Let tho residue
settle again and pour off the top, thus ob
taining the pure whiting; add one ounce of
borax dissolved in as llttlo water as neces
sary; add one-half pint spirits of camphor
and ono pint aqua ammonia; put in a bottle
and cork tightly.
To mention tho word lording is to discon
cert the nvenxgo cook, and Its presence in a
recipe kills that rcclpo for most housewives.
Nevertheless, larding greatly Improves tur
keys, chickens, cutlets, birds, etc. Cut very
firm bacou fat with a sharp knlfo Into strips
of equal size. Put one end into tho lordJpg
ueedlo and draw through the skin nnd a little
of tho meat or fowl of tho article to bo lard

with the two exposed ends of equal length.
" i i i
a flunrnisi.fo trick.
Now, supposing the doublo dcuco is tht
domino selected, you toll the person who hai
chosen it that you will count around tb
circle, and whon you havo counted twonty.
including tho uumbor of spoU on tho selected
domino, bo must tell you to stop, and that
your flngor will then rest on tho domino
chosen. The secret is simply this: You
count carelessly around, 1, 9, U, 4, 0, 0, 7, or
any of tho dominoes; but at tho eighth count
you always manage to point to tho doubl
six, and after that you contlnuo counting
around regularly to tho right.
Do suro and remember this, for it Is thi
koy of tho trick. For example, as wo have
before said, wo will suppose tho doublo deucs
to bo the selected domino. We follow th
abovo instructions, and count and point at
tho dominoea promiscuously tho first sovon
counts; but at the eighth count wo point ttt
tho doublo six, and contlnuo to the right on
the six-five, doublo flvo, and so on In succes
sion until wo arrive at tho double deuce,
when wo will ba told to stop, becauso by that
tlmo Wo will havo counted sixteen, to which,
if wo add the fciwts on tho domino chosen, we
will hnvo twenty. This rulo holds good, no
matter what domino happens to bo solocted.
It U porhaps useless to Inform our reader
that bo must not count out loud, or appear to
couut mentally, but lot It soom as if ho were
only jxjlnting at tho dominoes by clianco.
You must let tho person who selects thodom
ino appear to do all tho counting.

Jarvis' California Pear Cider.
This delicious summer beverage is made in California, from very ripe mellow
Dartlett Pears. In the height of the ripening 6cnion many tons of penrs become too
ripe for flipping or canning purposes, (hey can then be utallzcd by pressing them Into
elder. The fresh juice Is boiled down two gallons Into one, and is then strained through
pulverized chnr coal. This hcutlng, condensing nnd straining completely destroys fer-'
mcntntlon.nnd the elder ever afterwards remains sweet and good and is n most healthy
nnd nutritious article for family use.
Knowing there are many spurious ciders sold In this market we offer the abov
explanation with the eminent testimonial of Prof. J. II. Long. Very Respectfully,

1 he liquid Is noiwilcohollc and has n specific gravity of 10.65. The total extrac

tests show this ncld to be malic acid as usually found In fruit juices. I find no other

I believe It, therefore, to consist simply of the juice of the Pear as represented.
