Samuel Hmllen, In his hook called "Thrift,"
Blavery long existed nmong oursolves. It

Baxon times, when tho household work was
done by slaves. Tho Baxons wero notorlou

cording to Irish historian, tliero wassearcely
a houw in Iroland without a Ilrltlsh slavo lit
It. When tlio Norman took pcisesslon of
England they coutlnued slavery. From that
tiino slavery continued in various form. It
is recorded of tho "good old timet" that it
was not till tho rclgu of Henry IV (1.TJ0-H1.T)
that villeins, farmers mid mechanics wero
jHjrmltted hy law to put tholr children to
school, and long nfler that thoy dared not
educate a son for tho church without n
llcenso from tho lord. Tho king of En
gland, in their contests with tho feudal oris
tocrney, gradually relaxed tho sluvo laws.
They granted charters founding roynl burghs,
and when tho slaves (led Into them and wero
nhlo to conceal themselves for n year and
a day, thoy then liceamo freemen of tho
burgh nud wero declared by law to bo free.
Tho last serfs in England wero emancipated
in tho rolgn of Queen Elizabeth, but tho last
serf in Scotland wero not cumneliatod until
tho rolgn of Ueorgo HI, nt tho end of tho
last century. Ueforo then tho colliers and

conceived tho Ideaof erecting an observatory
and placing therein tho illicit, as well ns tho

Vulitubla Kafrgrstlnns About Framing nnl
Tofrnmo njijirojiriatoly tho pictures that
nro to ndorn our wall Ii something of nn
nrt, and requires lwth tssto and Judgment.
In thU matter ono ought not to bo entirely
dejiemlent ujxiii tho ndvico of dealer nnd
maker of frame, who from various mo
tive may ciicournjo us In the selection of
unsultnblo styles of framing. Tho following
suffgcstlon of Uood Housekeeping nro there
fore of valuot
A most Important mlo ono which, thoueli
often violated, may Ik termed established by
general consent of couiotcnt Judges Is to
franio oil jialntlngs and cliromo in gilt, and
engraving or etchings, nnd other picture In
monochrome, In natural wood. Mats, used
with glass, between jilcturo and frnmo nro
most common with monochromowork; often
also with water colors, and iu their caso tho
molding edging tho mat may bo either gilt or
otherwise, a tho contact Is with tho plain
tint. Tho jirlucijilo thnt around n mat tlio
fmmo should bo narrow find its nxtrcmo Iu
tho substitution for molding of a narrow
binding of cloth or pajier, nn arrangement
known ns jiaso-jmrtout. most npproprluto for
certificates, testimonial nud tho llko, but
sultablo also for quiet landscajies Iu mono
chrome, such n small etchings. Mitts or bor
ders nro inoro often too narrow than too wide
When too narrow tho effect I that of over
crowding; when too wldo, that of subordi
nating tho jilcturo to Its ncccs3ory.
Iu general, suit thu frnmu to tlio tono of
tho jilcture. Thus n molding Imitating ivory
or imburnlshed silver may harmonize with
mow, uml nilnrk onk or nu (lionized frame
with tlio representation of night.
If wo suppose pictures wisely chosen and
framed, tliero still remain certain questions
ns to their Judicious hanging.
Iu choosing place on wall for different
jilcture, of courro the old rulo is not to 1m
forgotten to rcgnrd tho light and slnulo hi
tho jilcturo, nnd put it where tho prevailing
light from tho nearest window will bo ojmo
slto tho depleted shadows, Cnro 1 necessary
also sometime to avoid tho occurrence of nu
unjilcnsant glare from tho surface of nu oil
(tainting or from glnts.
A common error Is having tho eyelets iu
tlio franio too near tl.u middle of tho two
Bides, whereby tho surface of tho jilcturo
when hung tljn forward nt an ungraceful
pitch. Too llttlo Inclination Is not so bad as
too much. Another error Is hanging pictures
too high. Asafogulde, ntlcustiu beginning,
Is to havo tho center of tho pictures nbout in
lino with tho eyes of nn adult of ordinary
size. In adjusting jilcture of varying w idth
tonti nveragu height nbovo tho floor it is tho
center, rather than tho bottom, of tho frames
which should bo cousldured.

I have made ninde n chemical examination of the sample of Jnrvls' Pear Cider
suliiiiltled to 1 nc n few days ngo, and would report these points among others noted.
'I he liquid is nonalcoholic and has n specific gravity of 10.65. The total extrac
tive matter amounts to 10.25 P" cent, containing only .025 per cent of free add. The
tests show tills acid to be mnllc acid ns usually found In fruit juices. I find no other
acid or foreign substance added for color or flavor.
I believe It, therefore, to cotnlst simply of the juice of the Pear as represented.
