Enough flour should le used so the rivets will not etick together in sodden lumps, but in fine dry flakes or wa fers.

"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 their call at all, at laast, on that account. Detroit Free Press. 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 Star. CfcilJrcn with CoM Feet. Ccreless mothers ad nurses frequently ! Bead children to bed with cold feet. The ap- j pea of the little ones for something warm to wrap around their feet is either entirely jiis- ! regarded or calls forth a peremptory order : to "go to sh?ep and stop bothering." ; Wo know cf a mother who undresses five Iltt Ia children and put 3 them to bed herself every night..

Dangerous attacks of croup, diphtheria or fatal sore throat can often be traced to neglect of the chilalreu's feet. M. A. Thur ston in Oood Housekeeping. 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 ceiitereal ujhjii self; that this class of ersoi78 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. New York Graphic. 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 Church Helper. for a Severe Hum. The ain caused by being severely burned may be almost instantly relieved by apply ing a mixture of strong, fresh, clean lime water mixed with as much linseed oil as it will cut Before applying, wrup the burn in cotton waddiug saturated with tho lotion. Wet as often as it apjiears dry. without re moving cotton from burn for nine days, when a new skin will probably bavo formed. M. A. Thurston in (Joed Housekeeping. 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 prescribe a plaster and a dose of medicine, advise the sufferer to heat a flat iron, put a double fold of flannel on the painful part, then move tho iron to and fro on the flannel The pain will cease almost immedi ately. Good Housekeeping. 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 rising again to an erect position slowly exhale the breath. Repeat this process a second time, and the nerves will be found to have received an excess of energy that will enable them to perform their natural functions. Boston Budget. C'okl Ashes for l'atlis. The best (tse for coal ashes is to make paths and good roads. A good coating of them upon a path, with a bttlo soil thrown ujioii the surface to help solidify them, soon ie jomes a walk equal to asphalt, and very 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 the oven they should be put into a napkin or towel and the skin broken, so as to allow the steam to escape; this will keep the potato mealy. Boston Budget. A severe cold a:;d erhaps an attack of pneumonia may be prevented if premonitory symptoms are heeded. A chilly sensal ion along the spinal column, a cold, clammy feeling across the chest aro sure indications that a severe cold is trying to settle in the system. Bleeding at the nose frequently causes ex tremo prostration. If the nose bleed. from the right nostril, pass the finger along the edge of the right jaw until tho leatiug of the artery is felt. Press hard upon it for five minutes nnd the bleeding will stop. Rusty nails make ugly wounds, which, if not attended to nt once, may cause great suffering perhaps death. Smoke the wound with wool or woolen cloth; fifteen minute. iu the smoke will remove tho worst class of in flammation. Dumplings for chicken or stewed meats can be made without eggs if they are made with flour, a littlo water and salt and rolled very thin, cut in long strips and broken, not cut. when put into the kettle. Lace may be washed by winding it around bottles or sewing it on muslin and boiling it in soft water with pastile soap. It should be rinsed iu soft wat6r after removing it from the suds. Remove the irons when the ironing is done, and never let them stand on the stove, where steam and grease will be sore to settle ou thein. If the boiled potatoes are done a little too soon lay a towel over the kettle or dish, but do not put a tight cover over them. Alum and plaster of paris mixed with water and used in liquid state form a bard composition and a useful cement. Soft tissue paper is the best for polishing mirrors. This may also be used for polishing or drying wiudotv glass. Milk in boiling always forms a pjculinr acid, so a pinch of soda should be added when beginning to cook. Unslaked lime is excellent for cleaning small articles in steel, such as jewelry, buckles and the like. - Butter, lard and drippings should be stored in jars and kept in the coldest and drye&t place. Sweet milk or cream is excellent for sun burns or chapped feet on the little boys. The nicest thing to scour knives, brass, tin i ware, eta, is sifted hard coal ashes. If sassafras bark is sprinkled among dried fruit it will keep out the worms. The juice of two oranges added to a pitcher of lemonade greatly improves it. Rain water and soap will remove macldne grease from washable fabric Rich cake will not crumble if cut with a knife dipped in hot water. Vegetables are best stored in a room by themselves. - ' A word on plant culture Dou't over vrater." COTTOX SEED OIL A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF ITS MANU j rATiinir ucin ati amta t w av i ib.-n i i-o- i r. A .VNIt to t!i 31111a rrcrn, I.I tiler, Ilullcr, Heater nnat fre Cruilo OU In the Tnuk A Summary of the lies I. us. "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 mat, and the meal distributed so as to o iaaa or cusnton oi uniiorm ttnekness. i ho i pad of meal is not quite three feet long, a j foot wide, and three inches thick, and tho hair mat is folded over, samlwiching the pad I and leaving the leather coating of the pad ! ouLsmo. xii iuis ioi iu ine six loaus are put into the six pans, anal by means of a powp :. ful hydraulic press the pans arc ilov.ly pressed, together. This oil begins trickling out at the side, slowly at first, and then sud denly it begins running freely. The presf-uro on the "loads" is SiiO tons. After bein pressa?d about five minutes, tho pi-asssuro. is ! eased off and the "loads" taken out. Vhaj j ad been a mushy pad three inches thick is j hard, compact cako about three-quarters of ; an inch thick, and tho sack is literally glued j to the cake. Tho crude oil hat a reddish j ruuddy color as it runs into tho tanks. j To one side were lying great heaps of sac-hs j of yellowish meal the cakes which have beer broken aud ground u; into meal. That, as. explained abovo, forms the body of all furii!. ' izers.
