She will take preat prido in trying to have

take them out for her, letting her go and
have a ra-e with her dog or a rido on her
tricycle. Kho will come in with a fresher,
clearer head and a steadier hand than if
scolded and made to take out the misplaced
stitches. When she has finished the over

for her and start her at the hemming. Cau

too short, as (with beginners) very short

Keep your work along with hers. Abovo
all things, try to keep up her interest, and
when she conies to the button holes cut them
for her, neatly overca-sting tho edges. Im

Next teach her to darn. Let her take a
pair of her own stockings, tho pair with the
smallest holes, for large holes are so dis

For a worn or a torn place in n tin's, of

Children II-ar Too Much.
The innocence of childhood has le?ii rudely
lru.shed away and the knowledge of evil has
ntred the pure soul of the child. Then tho
fluestiou arises how can this state of affairs
i remed.ed J One of the most certain ways
xf cour.N-racting this evil, u to avoid in
liscrimiaata conversation before children.
There is 110 greater evil existing right now in
jc;etv than this indiscreet conversation 1
ore children. A lady visitor comes in, c::d
Jn utter disregard of the presence of the chil
dren who are ia the room, the latct scaiuLd

tho wuno tiro arouses their furiosities mid

Hint surrounds it.
1 will give two instances that have come
under my olservation recently, as it illus
trate no well tho subject : A young lad in
his teem said to his mot her in inv presenco,
" WUit in this olwut, Mrs. V She
looked up in surprise and said: "What do
you mean V "Oh !" I.o said, "there is no use
to pretend ijjnorancc, you know what I mean;
I have seen you all with jour heads together,
and Lean 1 3-011 whispering, and Jim (a ram
Ianion) and I are on the track and are going
to find otit what it is." This gossip, what
ever it was, had been discussed right in the
home circle, and that is where tho boy heard it.
Tho other instance was a lady friend, who
i told mo she was exceedingly particular never
to discuss a scandal, or any subject before
her children tliat children should not know.
A few day3 before with closed doors she was
talking to her sister of a piece of news she
had just heard, when tho door opened and
her young daughter came in and said :
"Mamma, excuse me, I was not listening, but
came to tho door and overheard something
you said to auntie, and I want you to tell me
oil about it; I have heard some of it any
way." When asked where she heard it she
said: "At school; all tho girls know it."
Now as my friend said, "We send our chil
dren to a private school; pay the highest
prices so we can have them associate with the
best, and yet all tho indecent gossip that ii
abroad is discussod among them." Now these
school children get all their news at home.
Were it not for indiscreet parents, there
would be more innocent children. This may
seem to mothers a hard assertion, but it is
even so. In your hearts you no doubt earn
estly desire the purity and innocence of your
children, but in your conversations before
them you are forgetful of their interests by
your indiscretion. Atlanta Constitution.
A Well Irrel ITIfe.
A man loves to see his wife well dressed.
When she goes about in tatters, with big
shoes, untidy skirts, soiled collar, and a halo
of curl papers, if he doesn't swear ho thinks
it. I don't believo iu tho economy of homo
toilets. I never take a dress that is done for
and wear it in the house. When the life ia
gone out of it, it goe3 in the rag bag. I
make a duty of nice linen with plenty of
laces, and my house gowns are not old, they
are not wrappers, and they are not ugly.
Another hobby of mine is my hair, which I
will havo as near tho poet's conception of
'her fragrant trefses' as possible. Then I
i have a whole tat of littlo devices I perfumo
1 my eyebrows and lips; keep my hands soft
and cool, my teeth 111 good order, and I
make my doctor prescribe for a sweet
breath. Cut don't put that in tho paper. I

prnrtlnjf with the Machine.
Where there is snowiq machine in the
home it should be used as much as possible in
the family mending.' Some women never
think pf using the machine for anything but
mnking new or making over old garments,
while others uso it to do as much of the
family mending as can be done conveniently.
When there is a rip or a slit in a garment
nothing can mend it as quickly as the
machine, whilo for sewing on a patch it is
excellent. First baste the patch on evenly.

A year ago I was riding up town on a car.
I heard my name pronounced and looked,
but did not at first recognize tho face, which
was faintly 6miling at me. It was weirdly
pale and wrinkled and careworn. I looked
puzzled for a few moments, and then it
dawned on me that this was the wreck of
one of the prettiest girls in Brooklyn. I ac
companied her as fur as the door of her
house. It was a tenement house. "I won't
invite you in today," she said; "my rooms
are somewhat disordered." I said nothing.

try to keep up the pretense of being light

Going; to Bed.
I must tell you about my little girl going to
bed. She doesn't like to go up stairs by her
self at 7:li0 and leave the lights, the reading
and music, but we have a new plan now.
wnicb works liko a charm, one is never so
happy as w hen personating some one beside
herself. One night I proposed she should
play sho was going to a balL She (in imag
ination) put on her satin dress, long gloves,
slippers and what not and started off with
much interest. Auntia was the coachman
who took her to the party and she was very
ready to go to bed for the sake of getting
started. The next m'ght sho went to Cali
fornia to visit some little friends. I wrote
out a ticket for her to give the conductor,
and she took a sleeping car and next morn

she begins about 7 o'clock to know where she
had better go. I quite enjoy planning her
trips for her and she goes off happy every
night. "E. B. IL" in Good Housekeeping.
Cow's Milk for Infants.
It is well known that while the milk of a
healthy woman never disagrees with a
healthy child, that child cannot be fed with
cow's milk without peril. Indeed, most cases
of cholera infantum are among the bottle
fed, and a babe suffering from this disease
will generally recover at once if it can havo
a more natural nourishment.
Ono important difficulty with cow's milk
for infants is partly from it3 nature and
partly from tho freer and more copious
draughts with which it is taken into the
stomach it tends to coagulate into largo
masses of solid cheese. This is thrown in
sour lumps into tho bowels, and keeps them
in a state of perpetual irritation. Now, lime
water added to tho milk say one part in five
or six prevents this coagulation, and if
other hygienic conditions are right, the dan
ger of cholera infantum is very much dimin
ished. Youth's Companion.
Whero Men Are tnjust.
A popular belief, current among men at
least, is that women enjoy dressmaking.
Undoubtedly it is pleasant to see a shabby
old gown metamorphosed into a compara
tively fresh new one by the aid of judicious
turning, sponging and retrimining. The end
crowns tho means. But it is not invariably
a delight to a woman to go through the tire
some minutiaj that precede tha agreeable ter
mination. Thero aro . numbers of women
who anticipate the spring and fall dressmak
ings with deep groanings pf spirit, Teft to
themselves, they might fuss along with their
old clothes. But every truo woman desires to
look her best, not only in her husband's eyes,
but also, for his sake, in those of his friends.
So she plans and acts and contrives, with
what skill bho may, to save his purse and his
pride. To say the least, his unfavorablo
comments savor ot ingratitude. Harper's
Never bo withheld from entertaining from
the mistaken idea that you must follow the
example of richer friends and neighbors,
even if it be far beyond your means and in
clination, -Simplicity in never vulgar; lavr
iihness usually is. Entertain according to
your circumstances, but gracefully and cor
dially, thus following the example of one of
the most admired society women of New
York, whoso narrow purse permitted but the
most frugal table, and who, therefore, offered
at her weekly lunches the two accomplish
ments of her cook: good coffee and bread and
the delicious fish hash, in tho making of
which she excelled. Ann Sawyer in Good
A negro superstition is that if a girl can
make up a pretty bed an aooomplishment
that Ruskin says every woman should
possess sho will be rewarded, inasmuch as
she will be sure to mary a man with a well
shaped nose. If, on the contrary, her bed
making is not approvable, the man of her
choice will have a most ungainly nose.
When you have the ill luck to tear th last
pair of gloves you have suited to the occasion,
just as the occasion is at hand, you can repair
the damage by placiug a bit of court paster
under the rent on the inside of tho gloye. A
small snag or tear in coat or trousers can be
mended in like manner, and it will show less
than if repaired by the tailor.

How the ICxpIoalve Is Handled.
The factory lies in tho heart of a great ex
panse of sandy plain on the southwest coast
of Scotland. On approaching it a visitor is
hailed by the mounted guard that patrols the
environment of the factory; and be will have
to show very satisfactory credentials before
he is allowed to go further. On the way to
tho manager's house a village is tossed w hero
live tho wholo of the operatives employed in
the manufactory of nitro-glycerine. It is
merely a btreet of small tenements standing
on the threshold of the palisades which en
close M. Nonel's houses. Some distance from
the manager's house is tho shed where the
practical process of making nitro-glj-cerine
is seen at a glance. Before the visitor gets
thero, however, he is divested of his watch,
chain, money, keys, and every particle of
metal ho may have about him. This seem
ingly excessivo precaution is perfectly neces
sary, for a fall of even a penny on a floor
containing a grain of the explosive might bo
attended with disaster. Felt shoes have to
A DELICATE OPERATION.
In the first shed reached there is a large
tank in which are two parts of oil of vitriol
and ono part of the fuming nitric acid A
cistern above tho tank contains glycerine,
and when this is intndr.e? 1 h t
compound known ns mtro-glycerine is at ouce
formed. The" operation is, however, an ex
tremely delicate one. The tank is in clmrgt
of a workman upon whom the sole resinmsi-
bility of an explosion rests. If too much
trlvcerino is introduced into tho acids at one
time, the temperaturo of the mixture may
rise above 77 degs. a anreuneit, ana a sjiou
tancous explosion will at once follow ; so that
the operative's eyes aro never off the ther
mometer his own hope of safety lies m
keeping down the temperature of tho mixt
ure to some 7 or 8 degs. below its explosive
heat. He is aided somewhat by ice and coiu
water which aro outside tho vat; but tin.
compound is occasionally erratic and wiV,
gain heat notwithstanding all precautions.
For such a case the only alternative is to
move a lever, which lowers one side of tuo
tank, and allow the whole of the contents
to run through a sluice into a pond, wuen
it is about an even chanco whether it whl ex
plode ere it leaves the shed or wait until it
reaches tho open.
The second step is to wash the newly
formed chemical combination in water,
which very slightly absorbs it. It is then
put into " Winchester quarts," and conveyed
with tho utmost care into wooden huts or
dug-outs. As an instance of the extreme
susceptibility of mtro-glycerino to concus
sion, it is related tuaC a man was onco seen

MANY PRECAUTIONS TAKEN.
Not the least curious of the many curiosi
ties at theso works aro tho ponds into which
the washing water is run. Tradition has it
that tho detonative property of the water
was not discovered, until an angler one day
attempted to seduce the fish with a May -fly.
At his first cast, however, the pond blow up,
and he found himself somo hundreds of yarus
away, happily unhurt. To obviate a sjiniiar
danger now, Saturday is reserved exclus.vely
for cleaning the works in every department,
and among other things for deiiberatciy
blowing up the ponds. After congratulating
himself on a safe journey through the various
houses, the stranger is apt to hurry from the
factory and only to breathe freely when ho is
again at the station. He will not have, failed,
however, to notice tho many precautions
taken to insuro safety for those who daiiy
risk their lives in these very hazardous opera
tions. Each section of the operatives is distin
guished by a peculiar canvas suit with a
colored marking; no one may go on any pre
tence leaving his own department The
women work in felt shoes and bathing dresses,
and every singlo workman pr workwoman is
stripped and reclothed before going to their
labor. The explosive, too, are handled in the
smallest possible quantities, save in the firr.t
room of manufacture, where enough is made
at one time to blow up a city. The nitro
glycerine itself is a transparent, colorless,
oily fluid, slightly soluble in w-ater, but
readily so in spirit, ether or fat. Ono favor
ite way of destroying it is by boiling it in
potash, when it decomposes, glycerine aud j
niter being formed. Perhaps, the most curiou3 j
use to which it has ever been put is the result J
of the searching investigations of its medic
inal properties by Pr. William Murrell, w Uq

disease. St. James' Gazette.
Taken by Fair Photocrrapliers.
Fair amateur photographers have various
ways of making their wprk prnaiucittaL.
The pictures, which they take in their studios
or conservatories aro mounted in odd fash
ions. One girl showed to me' a whit satin
fan on which cho had photographed a group
of friends whispering to each other. She
had a fire screen with artistically arranged
groups clustered about the fireplace, Onq
group was a Halloween party watching chest
nuts roastinz on the dearth. This scene
might bo looked at by anybody, but in her
chamber she had pictures that wero destined
for her own eyes alone, or, at most, for thos4
of her most intimate frjends, Around the
mirror was a circle pf finely mounted photo
graphs of her girl friends in their prettiest
robes de nuit.
"Here they are every evening to bid mo
good night," she said, "and I was so pleased
with tho fancy that I made tfcis," showing a
group of white robed girls with flowing
tresses and one with beautiful hands working
at the curl papers on her head. Circling
around these photographs was a long curl
paper, on which the words "Good night''
had been eugrayed in a fantastic scroll. This,
picture stretches clear across the headboard
of her bed. On the footboard was an assem
bly of fair ones in all stages of attire girls
of the garter and girls of the cross one but
toning her shoes and another lacing her
whalebone and watchspring machinery.
These were all smiling a "Good morning."
One more possession of this versatile
young lady amused me, Jt was a 6 mall card
table to be given as a prize at the next pror
