The moist heat which, acting alone,

Flax-Seed Poultice. Tour sufficient
boilinir water over the ground flax seed
to make it as thick as thick cream and
let the mixture simmer a few minutes.
Apply as hot as can be Ixirne.
Mustard Poultice. Mix equal quan
tities of mustard, corn meal and Hour
in warm water until just thick enough
not .to run. Spread it over the poultice
, cloth, and if a very quick action of the
jHHiltice is desired sprinkle a little clear
mustard on before folding the cloth
over it. Apply this side next to the
Uread-and-Milk Poultice. Simmer
old bread in milk until soft enough to
mash smoothly. Crackers may be used
in place of bread, if necessary.
Indian Meal Poultice. Stir the corn
meal into water, and cook like mush
for five minutes or more.
Slippery Kim Poultice. Pour loiling
water over slippery elm bark (iow
dered) and add a little powdered char
coal, if necessary.
All classes of poultices should Ihj
spread on one-half of an oblong piece
of thin muslin; the other half should
then be folded over the spread mass,
and the loose edges carefully joined
with needle and thrcaL If this is
done, and the poultice when applied is
covered with dry cloths, all annoyance
from superfluous moisture and crumb

the comfort of the patient, who prob
ably "hates poultices;" and, if nervous,
may be seriously fretted by one care
lessly made or carelessly applied.

Impremire KfTerts Produce! with Kco.
The simplest means often produce
the best results; this is the case par
ticularly with embroidery. Sometimes
the most labored work does not pro
duce half the effect which is obtained
by a few bold and striking stitches.
Very large pieces of work may be done
quite rapidly by outlining heavily an
effective pattern and filling in the con-
7 -.- J
ventionalized jetals and leaves with a
variety of stitches and knots such as
are shown in the pattern given alxjve.
This example is taken from part of the
detail of a very pretty curtain which
has three large conventionalized flow
ers outlined with double zephyr. The
wool is laid on the pattern like braid
and held in place at short intervals,
and the petals and leaves are filled in
with every variety of stitches with
coarse embroidery silk. The connect
ing stems and spirals are done with gold
cord. The material on which this ef
fective work is done is simply un
bleached canton flannel, the smooth
side leing used, and the Itordering is of
yellow flannel put on with feather
stitching. Despite the cheap materials
the whole effect is very striking, and
would not be out of place in one of the
pretty, light colored sitting-rooms of
the dav. X. V. Tribune.
An Improved Cantor.
A useful castor of novel form is being
used in England. It is intended to
obviate the difficulties arising from
the ordinary construction of castors,
where the roller is carried on a crank
swivel arm, which is easily broken off.
The center pin of the roller-bearing is
fixed in a small plate, rotating freely
round a center pin secured in the body
of the castor. The plate named, when
pushed round into any position, rests on
the base of the cup or disk of the castor,
and is thus, while quite free to move in
any direction, thoroughly supported in
every position- It is in fact, a well
supported universal joint. The castor
is a great improvement on the older

THE LATEST IN CAPES.
a Picturesque nealgn Which Will Trove
A light cape, much in favor, is made
without lining and vith the edge
smoothly cut, so
that the bulk of
a hem is avoided.
These capes usu
ally have deco
rated yokes and
noted in silver,
wood, olive, old
and very light
cloths. Of course,
the j'oke and col
lar require a lin
ing, and ttiat is
AricTi KKsyi KUKsKiX. usually of loft
silk matching the cloth in the ca'.
The ease with which a cape may be as
turned anil tjic amount of protection it
will give make it take the place of the
various fancy shawls that for many
years have leen in vogue at the seaside
and mountain resorts when it grew cool
in the evening. A Spanish woman may.
know how to arrange her mantilla
gracefully, but the American girl gen
erally looks bundled up in her white
shawl, so that a picturesque cape there
is a decided change for the better.
A ca(H3 similar to the one described,
that is having uo lining, is shown here.
It is of mode cloth, reaches quite 1h-1ow
the waist, is raised on each shoulder
and is gathered into a yoke of the mode
cloth, shaKd out to form a high, round
collar. The yoke is thickly studded
with jet nail heads, while the edge of
the collar and the fronts, as well as of
the yoke itself, are outlined with a nar
row jet beading. The. lottom of the
cape is plainly cut and without a hem.
The hat worn with this is a picturesque
one of black net, finished with a bead
ing of jet, and having on the inside,
resting on the hair, a wreath of pale
pink roses: on the outside is a high clus
ter of black ribbon loops.
In gray with steel stars, in black
with jet, in wood-color with gold, in
black with gold, in gray with black, in
blue with steel, in dark-blue with
black such a cape would be in very
good taste. A black one ' would, of
course, be most useful for an all-the-time
cape. Hy the by, the gil who
fancies an all-white cloth toilette eruld
have a cape like this with white mother-of-pearl
stars in place of the nail
heads, and the effect would Ihj very
picturesque. For the one who likes
the contrast of black and white, a
whitecloth cape studded with jet stars,
und having a high collar lined with
black feathers, js commended. Such a
-jape would, however, have to Ihj kept
for special occasions, as. if it were
worn often it would grow tiresome to
look upon. Then, too, it would require
special care lieeause of its daintiness.
Ladies' Home Journal.
Convenient, Ornamental and Easily Mads
The pen-rack illustrated is convenient
and ornamental as well as easy of con
struction for home work. It is made as
follows: Cover with plush a piece of
board seven by nine inches, or larger.
IJronze or gild over a horseshoe and
eight nailt:. Place' the horseshoe, ends
up, well ('iv,n on the plush-covered
board. Through each nail hole tack a
nail into the wood sufficient to hold
fast the show; also leaving the heads of
the nails out far enough to hold, hori
zontally, four pen-holders, each resting
on the heads of two nails. A bracket
lehind holds the whole upright. A
further ornament of hand-painting
represents sprays of flowers issuing
from the ends of the horseshoe. Amer
Kest an a Medicine.
A physician, writing of rest as a
medicine, recommends a short nap in
the middle of the day for those who can
take it as a beneficial addition to the
night's sleep. It divides the working
time, gives the nervous system a fresh
hold on life and enables one to do more
than make up for the time so occupied.
A caution is given against the indul
gence of too long a sleep at such a time,
under a penalty of disagreeable relaxa
tion. There has been much discussion
regarding the after-dinner nap, many
believing it to be . injurious, but it is,
nevertheless, natural and wholesome.
A Delicacy for Lunches. ,
Two eggs beaten separately and very
light; stir in sifted flour until it can be
rolled out in molding board. Roll as
thin as possible and cut in strips an
inch wide and an inch and a half or
two inches long. Fry a delicate brown
in very hot fat. Sprinkle either with
powdered sugar or salt as you take
them from the fat. To be eaten soon
after frying. Very nice for lunches or
To Exterminate Roaches.
For roachesmake a flour paste into
which has been stirred, while hot, phos
phorus, in the proportion of a dime's
worth of the phosphorus to a half pint of
paste; when nearly cold add a quarter
as much grease. Put on pieces of
board where-the roaches are. They
will die while eatirj the paste.

ONE GRADUATING DAY.
A HOMELY SUBJECT THAT AT
TRACTED MOST ATTENTION.
A lirlglit liirl Told What She Knew About
"Itaiited llread,"aud the Applause That
Greeted the Heading of Her Essay
Eclipsed That Given to All Others.
"Well, 1 don t care if them other girls
are tfoing to write about 'Thought,' and
The Marble Stan's Waitin.' n 'Genius,
and all them other things. Mebbe my
M'randy can't say much that's edifyin
on them subjects, tho' it's my opinion
she could if t-iio tried. But she can make
beautiful ti bread, and she's goin' to
tell them how to do it."
Wifh this expression of faith in
"M'raudy's" powers, Mrs. McGillicuddy
gave an emphatic twist to the garment
she was wringing out of the suds.
The subject first under discussion was
of no small importance in the village,
for it related to the graduating exercises
at the village high school
With but one exception, the boys and
girls in the class sought topics that would
"sound well" and make a good show in
the daintily printed programmes.
One of tho young ladies began to writa
on "Twilight Thoughts;" another chose
as her subject "Destiny:" another wrote
at the head of the first page "Every
Cloud lias Its Silver Lining."
Of course each one soon learned what
subjects had been chosen by the other
members of the class, and loud were the
complaints when it was known what Mi
randa McGillicuddy proposed to write
about. It was agreed that the c3as3
would go down into history forever dis
graced. "But you pee," said Miranda, "1 don't
know anything at all about these high
toned subjects that the rest of you have.
I couldn't say one word about them that
would be worth hearing, but I think I
do know how to make bread, and I'm
6ure that many in the audience will be
interested to know some of the quirks
and the twists that turn out a handsome
"Well," said another, "1 envy you the
abundance of things you can say about
it, but it's so awfully commonplace;
why, it's it's as commonplace as eat
ing!" AN INTERESTING ESSAY.
Graduating day at last arrived, with
its flutter of excitement, its flowers, its
proud fathers and mothers and sympa
thizing friends and its somewhat envious
First came the salutatory, which was
listened to with marked attention, as
would be the case even with a thought
ful paper on the ''Identity of Identity
and Nonideutity" if it came first on
Then came an oration on "Greece,"
by a boy, followed by an essay on "Phi
losophy." By this time there were 6igns of rest
lessness, and some quiet whispering go
ing on among such as were not carefully
polite. Fortunately music came in at
this point, after . which the audience
was invited to listen to some "Twilight
Thoughts." Then appeared the "Cloud"
that was supposed to have a "Silver
Lining," but which certainly -cast no
gleam over the audience.
This condition, strange to say, seemed
to be intensified when "Hope" appeared.
At this point the presiding officer an
nounced an essay on "Raised Bread," by
Miss Miranda McGillicuddy.
The eager interest that came into ev
ery face in the audience was quite hu
miliating to those who had already ap
peared du the stage, and etill more hu
miliating was the close attention that
was suddenly paid to every word that
The essay discussed the importance of
good bread in a hygienic point of view
the effect which a "flat" biscuit fre
quently has upon the disposition of the
eater, as well as upon his stomach; the
nutritious and nonnutritious qualities
of various kinds of flour, and the whole
method of procedure, from the making
of yeast, through the successive stages of
mixing, working, raising, reworking,
molding and baking till that consum
mate flower of good housekeeping ap
peared a light, nutritious and delicious
loaf of bread.
THE JUDGE'S REMARKS.
Not one word was lost by the audience
from beginning to end. The ladies were
chiefly interested, perhaps, but men lis
tened very attentively too. When the
reading was finished the essay was given
the heartiest applause of the evening.
After the programme had been finished
and the audience was preparing to de
part, Judge Gildersleeve, chairman of
the school committee and the most im
portant citizen of the town, rose to make
a few remarks, and this was what he
"Before the audience diperses, I have
a suggestion to make, chiefly for the
benefit of those who may belong to the
graduating classes of the future. If you

How Insects Breathe.
If we take any moderately large insect
say a wasp or a hornet we can see,
even with the naked eye, that a series of
small spotlike marks run along the side
of the body. These apparent spots,
which are eighteen or twenty in num
ber, are in fact the apertures through
which air is admitted into the system,
and are generally formed in 6uch a man
ner that no extraneous matter can by
any possibility find entrance.
Sometimes they are furnished with a
pair of horny caps, which can be opened
and closed at the will of the insect; in
other cases they are densely fringed with
stiff interlacing bristles forming a filter,
which allows air, and air alone, to pass;
but the apparatus, of whatever charac
ter it may be, is so wonderfully perfect
in its actions that it has been found im
possible to injure the body of a dead in
sect with even so subtle a medium as
spirits of wine, although the subject was
first immersed in the fluid and then
placed beneath the receiver of an air
pump. The apertures in question com
municate with two large breathing
tubes, which extend through the entire
length of the body.
From these main tubes are given off
innumerable branches, which run in all
directions and continnilly divide and
subdivide, until a wonder fully intricate
network ia formed pervading every part
of the structure and penetrating even to
