Where Caution Is Neede.I.
"There is a great deal of carelessness now
aaiiys in giving introductions," saiil a society
leader to a reporter. "Formerly an intio-dut-tion
meant considerably more than it
now does. It was not given lightly and al
most ns a matter of course to any applicant.
Of late the formality of introduction has
been much abused. There is no longer the
same caut ion and discrimination in the mat
ter. 'People will often unthinkingly introduce
to their friends the merest casual acquaint
ances, of whoso moral and social standing
they know absolutely nothing, forgetting that
by so doing they are pledging their own
honor for their conduct. It is of course prin
cipally owing to the easy and matter of
course fashion in which introductions are
asked and obtained that adventurers and for
tune hunters are able to seenro a footing in
good society so easily. If proper care were
taken to see that those seeking introductions
were what they professed to be, the opera
tions of these gentry would be rendered much
more difficult." New York Mail and Express.
Onions for tho Complexion.
I wish to whisper a little secret, especially
to the girls who read The Household col
umns. It is this, girls: if you wish a clear,
smooth skin, just eat onions.
My sister and I have as fine, fair skins as
you often see. We are never troubled by
pimples, boils or eruptions of any kind, and
Ibis is largely due, our family physician says,
to the fact that from infancy wa haye bad
onions once a week and usually oftener.
When ir.T sister came home from a prim
boarding school a few years ago, she declared
that onious were a "vulgar f(od" and bbo
"shouldn't eat any." But when her face
would shine, and even a liberal supply of
powder would not cover up the eruptions,
then she decided they (the onions; were not
so very bad after alL
Now, girls, do not be afraid of having an
oficr.sive breath, but just drink a cup of
coffeo or chew a few coffee kernels, and, my
word for it, your company will not shorten

flow Fire for Cooking.
The great secret of French cxioking is a
knowledge of the variety of food to be had,
plenty of time to prepare the food and a slow
Cra. American cooks are in so much of a
hurry tbst when they prepare a meal they
imagine that what is necessary is plenty of
fuel and a roaring Dot fire. With meats this
simply bakes or incinerates the fibers, in
stead of permitting the juices to perform
their proper functions. And this "hurry up
system is what is slow ly, perhaps, but surely,
making us a race of dyspeptics. New York

I'a'lrn Intra Sclflkliuea.
Abby Morton Diaz in her remarks con
tended that tho most effective work for hu
manity is not always among the working
women, or the repulsively bad or. miserably
poor; that there are found among the well to
do women and tho rich many whose standards
are untrue, ambitions low, aims unworthy,
their occupations frivolous, and their deuircs

are often more truly fallen than those we
have so often branded as such, that she is the
fallen woman who falls into selfhood, or
who lives chiefly in her own lower nature.

Words of I'oliteness.
One who has the germ of true politeness in
bis heart can never lie boorish, and our aim
should be to make the foundation of courtesy
solid; then there will be no cracks in its
superstructiu-e. With a kind heart, the face
speaks the words of politeness and tho hands
act the courtesy. We want no counterfeits,
but the real thing. No "thanks," that come
out like words from a rubber stamp, but the
"I thank you," that is each time written with
an individuality of its own. (J rand llapids

To Itelieve Neuralgia.
Nearly one-half tho population are more or
less afflicted with neuralgic pains. Instead
of sending for tho doctor, who will probably

To Cure Hiccough.
Sit erect and inflate the lungs fully. Then,
retaining the breath, bend forward slowly
until the chest meets the knees. After slowly

the breath. Repeat this process a second

received an excess of energy that will enable
them to perform their natural functions.
C'okl Ashes for l'atlis.
The best (tse for coal ashes is to make paths

pleasant to walk upon. Boston Budget.
Drying It.iked Potatoes.
BakeaJ jiotatoes must lie eaten as soon as
they are done. When they are taken from

A severe cold a:;d erhaps an attack of

COTTOX SEED OIL
A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF ITS MANU j

In the Tnuk A Summary of the lies I.
"Cotton seM oil," said Mr. A. E. Thornton,
of tho Atlanta mills, 4,is oneof the most vnlu
ablo of oils Ixxm use it is a neutral oil that
is, neither acid nor alkali, cud can lie made
to form the body of any other oil. It assim
ilates the properties of tho od with which ii
ii mixed. For instance, olive oil. Cotton
seed oil is taken and a little extract of olives j
put In. The cotton oil takes up the proier- J
ties of the extract, and for all practical pur- !
poses it is every bit as goaial us tho pure olive
oil. Then it is used in swt-et oil, hair oil,
anal, in fact, in nearly ull other .i. A chemist j
cannot tell the prepared cotton oil froui olivo
oil except by exposing a saueerful of each,
nnd the livo oil laeca.mes rancid tiuuh
quicker than the cotton oil. The crude oil is
worth thirty cents a gallon, and even rs it is,
makes the finest of rooking lard, and enters
into tho comiasition of nearly all lard."
A visit to that mills showed how the oil is
inudo. From tho platform where the 1 seed is
unloaded it is thrown into an elevator and
carried by a conveyor an endless screw in a
trough to tho warehouse. Then it is dis
tributed by the conveyor uniformly over the
length of the building about. '.'(Kl feet. The
warehouse is nearly half filleal now, anal
thousands anal tiiou-iOials of I riv : ;
in store. Aio;!.. .- c;.,.noi a-arries Him seed
up taj the "saiial screen." This is si re aIviug
cylinder made of wire clo.h, tho meshes
being small enough to retain the seed, which
ore inside tho cylinder, but tho sand and dirt
escape. Now the seeds start down an in
clined trough. There is something else to lie
taken out, and that is the screws anal nails
and rocks that were too large to be silted
out with the sanal and dirt. Thcie is a hole
in the inc-lineal trough, ami up through that i
hole is blown a current of air by a suction
fan. If it v. ere not for the fan the ot ton
seed, rocks, nails and all woulal fall through.
The current keejis up the cotton seed, nnd
thoy goon over, but it is not strong j-nough
to keep up the nails and pebbles, and they
fall through. Now the seed, free of !1 'Ise,
is carried by another elevator and cndles
screw convej-or to the "linter." This is
really nothing more than a cotton gin, with
an automatic feed.
"HUI.LKll"' AND "HEATERS."
Then tho seed is carried to the "l:u'!er,"
where it is crushed or ground into a i-o-jrti
meal about as coarsens theordinarv corn
"grits." The next step is to Pepa-nto U:o j
hulls from the kernels, all tho oil beir.i i.i tlio
kernel, so the crushed seed is carried to tho
"separator." This is very much o:i t'r- f.t'. ie
of a sand screen, being a revolving cj linitr
of wire cloth. The kernels, being sr:n;t!!er
than the broken hulls, fall through tit
broken meshes, and upon this priuc'rlo the
bull is separated nnd carried direet t' h.?
furnace to be used as fuel. The ker.ic!.-; are
ground as fi:e as meal, very much as f.i -Jst is
ground, le( ween corrugated steel 'Toilers." ;
and tho damp, reddish c-olorol meal is car j
l ied to tho "heater."
The "heater" is one iron kettle w ilLm a:i- i
other, the six inch steam space between the i
kettles being connected direct with the boil
ers. There aro four of theso kettles fide in
side. The me::l is bronght into this ronra by :
a:i elevator, t'lKi Krst "border" U Hi , end !
for twenty minutes the meal is suhj?-. red to '
a "dry cook," a steam cook, the stea i in ti-io
packet being under u pressure of fa.r. e '
pounds. Insi'Jo the inner kettle is a "stirrer,"
a revolving arm attached nt right a s to;
a vertical shaft. The stirrer makes t'.c Le j
ing uniform, anal t he high tei;-rat uro a -i i vr-s i
o!T all the water ia the meal whilo il.a i:voi-
atile oil all remains.
In five minutes the next her.ter is H'Acd, i;
live minutes the nertt, etc.
Now there are four "heaters," nnd r.s t:.j
last heater is filled at tho end of twenty
minutes the fir.-Jt hav.tcr is emptied. The:,
fit. the end of live minutes tho first heater is
filled, and the one next to it is emptied, and
the rotation is kept up, each heater full of
meal being "drv cooked" for twenty min
ute."?. tVrrcspon ding to the four heaters aro four
prp.-ws. Iiac'.i pres;s consists of six iron pans,
shaped like baking pans, arranged one above
the other, and about five inches apart. Tho
pans are shallow, anal around the ralge of
each is a semi-circular trough, and at tl:t
lowest point of the trough is a funnel i.hajKKl
hole to enable the oil to run from one jau l.i
the next lowest, anal from tho lowest pan to
the "receiving tanks" below.
rRE.SSI.VO OUT THE OIL.
As soon aa a "heater" is ready to be c:n
tied, the meal is taken out and put into six
hair sacks, corresponding to the six puns i.-j
tho press. There are six hair mats about on-
foot wide and six long, one side of cneh being
coateal with leather. The hair mat is about
an iiieh thick. Now the hair sack containing
ten and a half to eleven jiounvls of heated
steaming meal is placed on one end of t he
