Happy Are They Who Can Say They
Have Lived Up to the Promises
of the Springtime—Some
Household Lore.
There is a sadness connected with
the fail of the leaves and the closing
months of the year which we have
all recognized. With the spring, hope
awakens in the heart and “all things
seem possible,” but with the ending
of harvest we realize how much we
have left undone, how carelessly we
have sown, how neglectful we have
been in cultivating the tender graces
that make life worth the living. We
all mean so well. We want to walk
uprightly, to be kindly alfectioned
one to another, sweet and unselfish in
our family life, and faithful to eveiV
duty set before us; but when we be
gin to take account of harvest we
realize how far short we have come of
what we intended in the springtime.
But let us not be discouraged, how
ever. From the realization of failures
past, let us take fresh courage for the
“If any watchful thought of ours
Can make some work the stronger,
If any cheery smile of ours
Can make its brightness longer.
Oh, let us speak that thought to-day.
With tender eyes a-glowing.
So God may grant some weary one
Shall reap from our'glad sowing.”
It is a singular thing that in the
great hospitals and training schools
for nurses, where everything is sup
posed to be done in the most advanced
hygienic way, a requirement in the
nurses’ ward is that their beds be
made for the day within a half hour
after the time of rising.
This allows for no airing whatever,
save the very few minutes while the
nurse is dressing. The same provis
ion holds in the general wards, where
the patients are able to be up during
the day. As soon as the patient rises
the bed is made so that the ward may
look tidy. Sanitary cleanliness in
this ease is sacrificed to appearance—
a great mistake, as every good house
wife knows. There is nothing more
restful than a well-aired bed. It is
not sufficient to throw back the covers
from the foot, for a make-believe air
ing. They should all be taken off
separately, spread over the chairs
near the opened windows, then the
mattresses turned and the pillows
shaken and put to air. Every child,
boy as well as girl, should be taught
to do this; yet in how many families
do children, and old folk, too, crawl
out of their beds and leave their
rooms without even so much as open
ing the windows.
Every few years even the best of
mattresses should be pulled apart
and made over by an expert workman,
then covered with fresh ticking. As
for the pillows, they may be made over
at home, if one has a closed room in
which to work. Empty the feathers
into clean sheets, tie up and take out
into the sunshine, laying them on
boards or a table where the air can
get to them. Heat with a light stick
or rug beater, and turn often. Mean
time wash the cases or make new. as
required. After a few days in the
crisp air and bright sun, the feathers
should be elastic like new. Then re
turn to the cases. Old feathers, when
well kept, are far better than the
freshly plucked ones, unless they are
perfectly cured. When carelessly at
tended to the quills contain some ani
mal matter that is apt to breed ver
“Lady Baltimore” Cake.
Beat the whites of six eggs. Take a
cup and a half of granulated sugar,
a cup of milk, nearly a cup of butter,
three cups of flour and two teaspoon
fuls of good baking powder. Sift the
flour and baking powder together in
to the other ingredients, adding the
eggs last of ali. Bake in two buttered
pans for fifteen or tweny minutes.
For the frosting: Two cups of granu
lated sugar and a cup and a half of
water. Boil until stringy, about five
minutes usually does it. Beat the
whites of two eggs very light, and
pour the boiling sugar slowly into it,
mixing well. Take out of this enough
for the top and sides of the cake,
and stir into the remainder, for the
filling between the two layers, one
cup of finely chopped raisins and a
cup of chopped nuts. This is de
licious when properly baked.
White Wedding Cake.
Cream together two cups butter and
four of sugar. Add alternately two
cups milk and six cups flour that has
been sifted three times with two
I teaspoonfuls baking powder. Stir all
I well together, then stir or knead into
the batter two pounds citron sliced
wafer thin, two pounds almonds
blanched and chopped, two medium
sized fresh cocoanuts grated and two
wine glasses white wine. Last of all
fold in the stiffly whipped whites of 16
eggs and bake in a very moderate
oven. Flavor with almond or vanilla

sprinkle with a little lemon juice, salt

Defined by Customs Men as a Bird, a
Handbag and a Deg.
On the travels of a monkey from
Genoa to Heidelberg an amusing farce
might be written. A German gentle
men brought from southwest Africa
a tiny monkey weighing barely a
couple of pounds. From Tanga to
Genoa all went well with the Lilli
putian animal. It was a favorite with
everyone, and traveled free until
Genoa was reached, when its troubles
Brought under the notice of the Ge
noese customhouse authorities, it was
promptly deprived of its identity. It
was no longer an animal: it became
a bird, and as a bird, on which 28
cents was charged, it was conveyed to
the Swiss frontier, where, at a stroke
of the customhouse officer’s wand it
was transformed into a cat at. the in
creased assessment of $l.i>6, and
borne by train to Zurich.
On its arrival there it ceased, as a
cat, to exist, and became a mere pack
age—an item of luggage that was con
veyed to Constance for the nominal
sum of 16 cents.
Still as luggage, though ntetamor
phized from a package Into a handbag,
it went on its way to Stuttgart, where
a great honor awaited it. It was, on
payment of $2.04, exalted into a dog,
and it was as a dog that it ended its
journey at the university town of
Heidelberg.—Stray Stories.
Tramp Finds Rest for His Weary
Bones in House of Worship.
The janitor of one of Portsmouth's
largest churches was given a big sur
prise Sunday morning as he stepped
into the auditorium after opening the
big front doors to allow of the usual
airing out. He came face to face with
a strange and tough-looking man. At
first the janitor feared a touch of the
chills, but he finally brought himself
together and inquired of the man what
he had been doing.
The fellow said that he had been en
joying a night’s rest on the cushions
of a pew away down front. Saturday
night he was attracted to the church
by the singing of the choir during re
hearsal. He found the door open,
walked in and sat down.
The music had that soothing effect
and the wanderer fell asleep. He knew
nothing more until daylight, when he
awoke wondering where he was at. He
said that in all his life he had never
found a more comforable bed.
The janitor looked about, saw that
nothing was disturbed and then al
lowed the stranger to go.—Portsmouth.

Wild Ducks Found to Bear Fish Eggs
Ready to Hatch.
A correspondent from Saffi wrote in 1
our June issue expressing his mysti- :
fication as to how small fish come to ;
be in inclosed waters. A naturalist
suggests an explanation. He says:
“If the wild ducks, etc., of Morocco
are similar to those elsewhere there is
no mystery. For some years there j
■was open-mouthed wonder as to how i
perch, bream and crayfish could get
into newly cut dams near the Mac
quarie river in New South Wales.
“In some ’cases the water had hardly i
settled after the rain had filed the
dam than the fish were observed, and
the farmers started n large theory of
spontaneous production.
“This obtained till a Sydney profes
sor chanced to pick up a wild duck
and found its breast feathers and
webbed feet well dotted with fertile
and almost hatched fish-ova, on which
the spontaneous production' theory
was promptly withdrawn.” — Cham-|

Size of Heads.
The average adult hear, has a cir
cumferance of fully 22 inches. The !
average adult hat is fully 0% size. !
The sizes of men's hats are 6% and
6's generally. “Sevens” hats are com
mon in Aberdeen, and the professors ,
of our colleges generally wear 7% to
8 sizes.
Heads wearing hats of the sizes 6%
and smaller, or being less. than 21
inches in circumference, can never be
powerful. Retween 19 and 20 inches
in circumference heads are invariably
weak, and, according to this authority,
“no lady should think of marrying a
man with a head less than 20 inches
in circumference."
People with heads under 19 inches
are mentally deficient, and with heads
under 18 inches "invariably idiotic.” >

The True Way to Correct Nervous
Nervous troubles are more often
caused by improper food and indiges
tion than most people imagine. Even '
doctors sometimes overlook this fact. '
A man says:
"Until two years ago waffles and
butter with meat and gravy were the
main features of my breakfas". Final
ly dyspepsia came on and I found my
self in a bad condition, worse in the
morning than any other time. I would
have a full, sick feeling in my stom
ach, with pains in my heart, sides and
“At. times I would have no appetite
for days, then I would feel ravenous,
never satisfied when I did eat and so
nervous I felt like shrieking at the
top of my voice. I lost flesh badly
and hardly knew whic^i way to turn
until one day I bought a box of Grape
Nuts food to see if I could sat that.
I tried it without telling the doctor,
and liked it fine; made me feel as if
I had something to eat that was satis
fying and still I didn’t have that
heaviness that I had felt after eating
any other food.
“I hadn’t drank any coffee then in
five weeks. I kept on with the Grape
Nuts and in a month and a half I had
gained 15 pounds, could ea!; almost
anything I wanted, didn’t feel badly
after eating and my nervousness was
all gone. It’s a pleasure to be well

London Observer Admits Truth of
American Indictment.
An English reporter, fired with pat
riotism on seeing the assertion made
by an American visitor that London
ers polished their boots less frequent
ly than the people of any other coun
try in the world, set out to disprove
the charge.
He visited a number of well-known
shoeblacks at important points in
: London, but what he learned all tend
! ed to confirm the allegation made by
j the American.
One shoeblack said he had custom
ers who look like millionaires but get
only one shine a week. After hearing
! similar stories from other shoeblacks
the newspaper man took up a position
in Piccadilly Circus and examined the
boots of passersby. •
; He confesses that of 80 people who
passed, the boots of 60 looked as if
they had not been polished for a
week. Twelve of them had their
boots well polished, but the remaining
eight had to be labeled indifferent.
After that, nothing was left but to
acknowledge that the indictment of
the American had some foundation.—

Little Girl’s Obstinate C?*e of Eczema
—Mother Says: “Cuticura Reme
dies a Household Standby.”
“Last year, after having my little
girl treated by a very prominent
I physician, for an obstinate case of
! eczema, I resorted to the Cuticura
j Remedies, and was so well pleased
i with the almost instantaneous relief I
afforded that we discarded the physi
cian's prescription and relied entirely :
on the Cuticura Soap. Cuticura Oint

|The Laxative ®r
L Known Quautm
, There are two classes of remedies; those of known qual
ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, actinar
2^ unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting tempo
*" rarily, hut injuriously, as a result of forcing the. natural
EjJ functions unnecessarily. One of the most exceptional of
the remedies of known quality and excellence is the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactui d by the California
Fig Syrup Co., which represents the active principles of
plants, known to act most beneficially, in a pleasant syrup,
in which the wholesome Californian bine figs are used to con
tribute their rich, yet delicate, fruity flavor. It is the remedy
of all remedies to sweeten and refresh and cleanse the system
gently and naturally, and to assist one in overcoming consti
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi
ples ami quality are known to physicians generally, and the
remedy has therefore met with their approval, as well as with
the favor of many millions of well informed persons who know
of their ov.n personal knowledge and from actual experience
fVA' that it is a most excellent laxative remedy. We do not claim, that
it will cure all manner of ills, but recommend it lorwhati; really

■J containing nothing of an objectionable or injurious character.
There are two classes of purchasers; those who are informed
as to the quality of what they buy and the reasons for the excellence
of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to go
elsewhere when a dealer offers an imitation of any well known
article; but, unfortunately, there are some people who do not know,
and who allow themselves to be imposed upon. They cannot expect
its beneficial effects if they do not get the genuine remedy.
