HOW TO MAKE A 6CRAPBOOK.
llethlBg Will Da raleaa It Be Oed Fet aa)
Leaat a Tear.
For a book in which to paste the cut
ting tiluioet any bound volume will do,
sepeeially if its pages show a wide mar
gin and the print can be readily covered
by two widths of ordinary newspaper
clippings. The margin may be need for
notes, including dates and s few ex
planatory memoranda. a The clippings
should be kept for a week or so before
they are pasted down, because a second
judgment may rule them out. It is quite
safe to advise collectors that no cutting
will do unless it bids fair to be fresh and
intelligible a year after it has been hon
ored with a place in the scrapbook. If
the pages become too thick for the cover.
cut out two or three leaves after each
page filled with the clippings.
When there is the sngnteei possiDimy
that a scrapbook may be used for pub
lishing purposes, or that any of its en
tries may be cut out for other uses, cover
one page only. But on the page used the
clippings should be pasted closely to
gether. If possible, each clipping should
retain the "rule' which marks the end
of a printed paragraph or poem. The
column lines need not be retained, in
fact it is best to cut newspapers always
along these lines. Bagged edges of
course should be avoided, and the muci
lage with which the clippings are pasted
down should be used sparingly, lest it
ooze through the paper or exude from
under the edges. Flour paste is better
than mucilage, and what is known as
photographer's paste is excellent

Hew Trees Affect the Climate of a Couatry.
A wooded country is almost invaria
bly wet An average amount of trees or
vegetation brings an average supply of
rain, and by the same rule is the sun's
heat distributed. As sandy surraces are
bad conductors, the climate by day is
rery hot, and as the cooling effect of the
earth's radiation is greatest over sand
the beat passes off at night, and it is
comparatively cold. Aa vegetable growth
receives the rays of the sun and none of
them falls on the soil, the temperature of
the soil does not rise so high as that of
land with no vegetable covering. Hence
this marked difference. The heat of the
day is more equally distributed over the
24 hours where there is vegetation, and
it is less intense by day and not so cool

What He Said.
Ia an English court a man was en trial
who could speak nothing but Irish, and an
Interpreter was called and duly sworn. The;
prisoner at once asked him some question,
and he replied. The judge interposed
"What does the prisoner say?" demanded
"Nothing, my lord," answered the inter
preter. "How dare yea say that when we all
heard him? What was it?"
"My lord." said the interpreter, begin
ning to tremble, "it had nothing to do with
the case." (
"If yon don't answer, I'll commit you. '
What did he say r"
"Well, my lord, you'll excuse me, but he
said, 'Who's thatould woman with the red
bed curtain round her sitting ap there?' " 1
The court roared. I
"And what did you say ?" asked the judge,

There ia nothing private about things that

one should at every turn have bis heart set

find printed slips telling you of the virtues
of the latest clothes cleaning establishment

me that I can have my trousers pressed

wagon will call to get them. Isn't that a

New York Tribuna
A prominent Englishman, Lord D., a
proverbial hater ot America and Ameri
cans, was dining lately in Paris with the
British minister, and next to him at the ta
ble was a noted Newport belle, Miss X.
1 The conversation had drifted to a discus
sion of things American. It is needless to
say that Lord D. made soma pretty disa
greeable remarks about some Americans
he had met and some Yankee customs he
"Why, d'ye know," be continued, with
an almost unpardonable want of tact,
"that at some of the places I dined in
America I saw people eat with their knives
and spill their soup on the tablecloth."
Miss X. was thoroughly provoked by this
time, but she replied with an apparent un
concern: "What poor letters of introduction you
must have had, my lord I"
There was no more unpleasant talk about
America that evening. Harper's Bazar.

ERRORS OF SPEECH.
gsaee Ti at Have Been Eradicated sad Vew
Jae That Are Appearing,
In English a great number of errors have)
been so well reproved that they are grow
ing rarer. "And which," and the falsa
collocation of only, which a few years sga
were everywhere, are sometimes hardly ta
be met with in the whole ot a leading sr- ; .
tide. On the other hand, new outrages
are gradually getting common. "Infer,"
far "imply," which would some litUe
time ago have been smiled at as a mere
vulgarism, is incredibly frequent In eosv
veraatlon and by no means unknown ha
But far more hideous Is "human" far
human being. And this has appeared of
late in Ixmdon newspapers that ought ta
know better. Our own com plaints as ta
this offense have been merely a plea that
the word so used ia English poetry as weB
aa colonial prose and may be found ia the
poems of Mrs. Browning. Obviously, how
ever, she uses "the human" not in plaas
of "the man," but precisely as "the beau
tiful," "the true," were ao constantly used
by the antepenultimate Lord Lytton.
New follies arc the more to be resisted
as the language of the press ia shedding
old ones and ia gaining much in simplic
ity. The jaded phrase, being spent, is at
last allowed to drop out and die. And
with It will, by degrees, pass away the
habit of exaggeration, boisterous, cold,
disappointing, from which a reader turns
with chilly disapproval. The weak exag
gerate often, and the strong exaggerate
now and then. Exaggeration ia quite ft
different thing from extravagance, vio
lence, delirium. These may lawfully claias
their moment in art. But they can never
eover or disguise the intrusion of exagger
ation, instantly unmistakable and forever
Then there is the opposite of exaggera
tion, which ia not less mischievous, but .
sillier. It Is not common In literature, bat
it is a most familiar note In a certain kind
ot respectable journalism. There is aa ex
cellent Instance in Tuesday's Times (Duke)
Ernest's biographer is describing thai '
prince's action and influence as contribu
tory to the work of German unity) 1 "Tb
remark of the Emperor William to him aS
Versailles, 'This I awed partly to yom,'
was la a certain measure justified."
The Jaded phrase, the silly phrase and
the phrase of exaggeration are to be avoid
ed simply by simplicity. To attend, ta
wait upon what you really think; not ta
Interrupt yourself with too loud ft word;
not to translate your uncertainty by to
pat a phrase, your moderation by one to
emphatic to do this much ta to lend aa
effectual hand in ft work that has becoene
In the use of compound words from far
sign languages It is often the important
half that is dropped in brevity. Un bil
let de sleeping is the current phrase that
meets the traveler; so in un boutellle de

to the pronunciation of the other word) ask

Chemically the apple Is eompoaed of
vegetable fiber, albumen, sugar, gum
chloropbyl.malle acid, gallio acid, lime and
much water. Furthermore, the German
analysts say that the apple contains a
larger percentage of phosphorus than any
other fruit or vegetable. The phosphorus
is admirably adapted for renewing the es
sential nervous matter lecithin- of tb
brain and spinal cord. ,
It la perhaps for the same reason rude
ly understood that old Scandinavian tra
ditions represent the apple as the food of .
the gods, who, when they felt themselves
to be growing feeble and infirm, reaorted
to this fruit, renewing their powers of
mind and body. Also, acids of the apple
are of singular use for men of sedentary
habits, whose livers are sluggish in action,
those acida serving to eliminate from tb
body noxious matters, which, if retained,
would make the brain heavy and dull or
bring about jaundlceorskineruptionsand
other allied troubles.
Some such experience must bavs led t
he custom ot taking apple sauce with
roast pork, rich goose and like dishes.
The malic acid of ripe apples, either raw
or cooked, will neutralize any excess of
chalky matter engendered by eating to
much meat It la also the fact that suck
ripe fruits as the apple, the pear and the
plum, when taken ripe and without
sugar, diminish acidity in the stomach,
rather than provoke it. Their vegetable
sauces and juices are converted into alka
line carbonates, which tend to counteract
acidity North American Practitioner.
A Chicago bride once displayed checks

sure that this is not often done. It is on
of the most disgusting bits of brag on social
