Old man Brown called his boy
out to one side this morning, as the
sheriff was starting with him to the
reform school, and gave him quite a
lot of parental advise. Among
other things that he said, to the
amusement of the listeners, was the
following: "Now boy. don't steal
mifliii when you git out to the re
form school; keep away from
them Sitzman boys and study
your books. It's a reg'lar school
you're goin' to, an' if you're a good
boy, by the time you git back you
may be as good a lawyer as Mistah
Gering," and the old man looked
prudly on the youncr hopeful and
dropped a tear, whether of sorrow
at parting or joy at the thought of
his early elevation, we could not
tell. It might be fair to Mr. Gering
to say that he has always been the
old man's attorney and is reckoned
by him as a veritable second edition
of DanT Webster.

and lets her work hlido between times is
an abject failure, but not more of one
than tho over energetic housewife who
takes a dozen steps where three will suf
fice, and u-"S up her strength in petty
ways, so that she is unable to accomplish
necessary tasks or only does them tin idly
by an almost superhuman effort.
As a rule American housekeepers dis
like science) and method as applied to
their work, and with some show of rea
son. Grahamites and various other food
cranks have appropriated 'good terms,
full of meaning originally, and have ap
plied them to their own ideas. Scien
tific, cooking is associated almost irrev
ocably in tho mind of the average
housekeeper with bran bread and oat
meal mush a diet now warranted by
intelligent physicians to break down tl
strength of a Tartar savage. ThorougL
scientific knowledge of what is neces
sary to sustain life would lead any one
to avoid such a diet. The matters which
it is especially necessary to bring down
to a scientific basis in order to save time
are methods of work.
In the kneading of bread, for example,
if the work is done properly and the
dough turned and folded systematically
in kneading there is no waste, no stick
ing of bread to the bowl it is raised in,
and no dust left over the board. The
simple exercise of kneading steadily and
easily for half an hour is no hardship;
it is, on the contrary, an admirable and
delightful exercise, which may he recom
mended for broadening the chest. When
the proper method of handling the p;ste
in making puff paste is once acquired
you may discard marble tables and
chilled rolling pins, and success is as cer
tain as it can he from any merely human
If the skilled housekeeper is offered
any labor saving tool to assist her in this
work she can tell in a moment, if she
understand "io best method, whether
the new tool will he of assistance or
merely off ers a makeshift for the genuine
process. Good makers of cake formerly
used an old fashioned egg whip. By
taking long strokes in a moment or two
they beat the whites to a coarse, moder
ately stiE froth, such as makes a deli-
care, leiiuer cuke. Willi t- ;;K trie
new patent- beaters they eun p. oduce n.
fine froth, stiff and tough enough to bend
when cut. A good cake baker knows,
however, that such ii froth will produce
a fine grained, hut a tough cake.
Again, in mixing in the flour with the
other ingredients, the trained worker
knows that if she folds the flour in care
fully, instead of taking circular stirring
strokes, her cake will be feathery light,
but that with the circular stirring she
will break down the whites and render
the cake liable to be tough. Her success
depends upon scientific knowledge of the
proper way to do her work in every case.
In cleaning there is a right and a wrong
way. If the worker scrubs a floor in
the go lucky ''hit or miss" style of some
charwomen she can devote a great deal
of strength to her work and yet leave a
larger part of the dirt on the floor when
siio is tione. ii, on me contrary, ti-
worker keexs two pails of water at hand,
one to scrub with and one for rinsing the
floor v. it h. abundance of clean cloths and
a firm brush, and the floor is scrabled
with tlie grain of the wood, it may be
cleaned with very little outlay of muscle.

day. When two men took their seats
they heard a .slight sniffle beneath them,
and one of them, looking around, found
a boy hardly bigger than a pound of tea
lying on the floor, shielded from sight by
the reversed backs of two seats, which
formed a tent over him. Of course, the
men did not inform the trainmen that
they were carrying a stowaway.
Indeed, one man was inclined to slip
twenty-five cents down to the little
rogue. Men always seem to like young
scamps. The child was still beneath
the seats when the two men got oil

perhaps from fear of the vigorous shak

Tlig Cables on the Brooklyn Bridge.
The four cables of the Brooklyn bridge
are sixteen inches in diameter each and
consist of about 20.000 single wires. One
difficulty with which the engineers of
the Brooklyn bridge had to contend was
the fact that the outside or exposed wires
were expanded by the heat of the pun,
while the inner and protected ones were
not so affected. The pressure of the
wind, too, being of varying velocity, rs
quired such adjustment of the wires aa
to prevent displacement, even in a hurri
cane, it took fifteen montns continual
work to string the wires of the bridge.
