G be* a G "-pse cf Manner* and
Custom* ir Demosthere*'
A leaden tablet, tarnished, ugly
and other* ise trivial in appearance,
was sent a few years ago from Athens
tc the Imperial museum of Berlin, the
sc - tt.Sc American says On one side
of :t was some wrung which only re
cent!} was deciphered with precise
correctness by Adolph Wilhelm The
tablet is the original of a private let
ter that »as written about the time
of the orator Demosthenes.
The writer of the letter lived in a
rural neighborhood and wished to
rend a commercial order to a town.
The form of the address was: "To be
taken to the pottery market and to be
handed to Nausias. or to Thrasykles.
or to the son” i perhaps the son of the
writer was meanti. The weekly mar
ket. to which the Attic countrymen
had g ne to offer their produce and
wares for sale, may be imagined in
progress There the boy wbo was
bearer of the letter was to find the
stand or booth of one of the three
persons to w hom it was addressed and
deliver it to him The teit of the
letter says: Mnesiergos greets you
rord:aIly. he greets your family with
the same esteem and wishes them
p od health, and he says also that his
own health is g(od Please be so
k:nd as to send me a mantle, either of
sheepskin or of goatskin, and let it
be as cheap as possible, for it does
not need to be trimmed with fur. feend
with a pair of heavy soles also. As
soon as I have an opportunity 1 will .
pay you "
So much for the letter, to the mo
tive of which the reader can point
with as much precision as the author.
Apparently it was written in winter,
poor Mnesiergos having been surprised
out in the open country by one of
those icy snowstorms which some
times even at this day cover the tem
ples of Acropolis with a mantle of
snow. Therefore he desired to re
ceive as quickly as possible the heavy
and warm garment of the poorer coun
trymen. a goatskin, which could be
bought for 41* drachmas, and the
strong soles which were worn under
the ordinary sandals on the rural
plains and hillsides. A good pair of
the latter could be bought for four
drachmas, as a well-preserved bill of ■
that date shows.
A noteworthy feature of this artless
letter is the formula that may be
found used in very numerous letters
that were preserved by the Greek lit- .
erature of later times. Even at the
present day every letter written by a
rural Greek begins with the same cor
dial inquiry about the health of the
person to whom the letter is written
and with the brief information about
the health of the writer.

The Marquesar.t. a Strong and Hand
some People. Are Literally
Retting Away.
Of all the inhabitants of the South
seas, the Martjuesans were adjudged
the strongest and the most beautiful.
And now all this strength and beauty
has departed, and the valley of Typee
is the abode of some dozen wretched
creatures, afflicted by leprosy, ele
phantiasis and tuberculosis. Melville

taking into consideration the stna.l
adjoining valley ol Ho-o-u-ml. Life has
retted away in this wonderful garden
spot. »here the climate is as deiight
f-1 and heal htul as any to be found
in the world. Xc-t alone were the
Typeans physically magnificent; they
were pure Their air did not contain
the laciiii and germs and microbes of
c.sease that fill our own air. And when
•he white man imported in their ships
tnese various micro-organisms of dis
ease the Typeans crumpled up and
went down before them
When one considers the situation,
one is almost driven to the conclusion
that the white race flourishes on Im
purity and corruption. Natural selec
tion. however, gives the explanation.
We of the whtte race are the survivors
and the descendants of the thousands
of generations of survivors in the war
with micro-organisms. Whenever one
of us was born with a constitution pe

hand, had there been a few hundred
thousand Marquesans to begin with,
there might have been sufficient sur- i

can be called a regeneration.—Pacific

proved Method of Preparing
Food for tho Tablo.
In tire of the fact that broiling ts
one of the simplest forms of cooking
it U strange that so many scorched
\nd dried up or half-raw steaks appear
on the American table, and If they are
broiled properly the chances are that
they are not seasoned sufficiently Any
steak, however tender, can be i»
proved by rubbing ft. before broiling
with olive oil or melted butter. After
rubbing ft in this way let it stand
half an hour at least, turning it once
daring that time. Sometimes a little
vinegar—about a tablesponful of the
best—ts also rubbed over it. Tbe acid
softens the fiber of the meat and the
oil protects the surface trorn drying
The vinegar Is particularly useful Ir
the treatment of tough steaks, but an\
«te&k is improved by ft. A tough pteo
of steak like the round should stand
several hours after betrg rubbed with
oil and vinegar, but it ts better not to
try to broil round steaks They will
always be more or less tough, while
they become deliciously tender It
stuffed and braised or stewed slowly
with tomatoes and savory seasonings
Just before broiling dredge th*
steak lightly with flour. Thts. mixing
with the oil. forms a coating ever thi
meat ws ft cooks, and shuts in th«
When first put over the fire the
steak should be held for two minutes
as near the red coals as possible with
out burning and should be turned
every ten seconds. This Is to sear it
over. After it is seared it should be
lifted and allowed to cook a little fur
th»r from the fire until done. After
the first two minutes ft should be
turned only occasionally, and care
should be taken not to puncture the
protective coating with a fork. While
some persons want their steak well
done, the consensus of opinion is that
it should be as rare as possible with
oi being actually raw. For this do
gree. a steak an inch thick will re
quire six minutes. To be well done a
steak should nroil 12 minutes, or even
longer. These figures presuppose a
'eery hot fire. If it is not quite so hot
Is it should be a longer time must be
During the broiling process ail the
drafts of the stove should be opened
i.nd the bed of coals should be bril
•iant. without fiame. The grate should
be well filled, so as to bring the fire
.ose to the meat. If any smoke or
•.lame is present the meat -win have a
disagreeable f.avor. The great chefs
prefer a charcoal bed for broiling.
One of the advantages of a gas range
is that as the meat is broiled under
the fiame instead of over it the fat
does not fail Into the fire, but into a
pan beneath, where it cannot start a
blaze that scorches the meat. When
broiling on a wood or coal stove, lay
the fat edge of the meat toward the
handle of the broiler, where it will be
i-emoved as far as possible from the
fire. Grease the broiler before put
ting in the n eat.
Season with sail and pepper last ol
all and serve on a heated platter with
out delay.
Green Salad.
The vegetables which are new al
this time—fresh garden lettuce, chic
ory. dandelion, watercress, romaine
etc., make the most refreshing green
salads. Crisp the green stuff in cold
water an hour before using, drain per
fectly dry, and season with salt, cay
enne, olive oil and lemon juice. May
onnaise. you must understand, is dis
tinctly a winter delicacy and so one
that brings no refreshment to the pal
ate at this time of year. For those
who like garlic, the cut end of a clove
rubbed on a bit of toast, which is
afterwards tossed with the green
stuff, gives a delicious snap to the
Tomato Salad.
Pare six or eight small tomatoes
and scoop out a small quantity of the
pulp from each; sprinkle the Insides
with salt, invert and chill. Fill the
cavities with the following mixture:
One tablespoonful of finely chopped
pa-sley, three tablespoonfuls of cream
cheese, one tablespoonful of mush
room catsup, a dash of white pepper,
one saltspoonful of salt, eight stoned
and chopped olives and sufficient
French dressing to moisten. Arrange
on a bed of fresh watercress and top
each with a teaspoonful of bar-le-duc
Turkish Rice.
Put Into a saucepan a cupful ol
stewed and strained tomatoes. Add
half a pint of stock, one chopped
onion and salt and pepper to taste
When the mixture comes to a boil, stii
in a cupful of well washed rice. Stir
lightly until the liquor is absorbed;
then pu. in a cupful of butter. Steam
over a slow fire for 10 minutes. Re
move the top. stir gently and covet
with a cloth until the steam has es
caped. Add a cupful of cold chopped
meat. Cook for another three min
utes and serve very hot.
Steamed Eggs.
Steamed eggs make a nice break
fast dish, and they are particularly
dainty when cooked in a steam cock
er. Butter the cups, and drop a raw
egg into each, sprinkle with a speck
of salt and pepper, and steam until
the whites are firm. Slip each egg on

Simple Street Hat
IK YOU are looking for comfort and
service in a street hat and want to
he sure that It embodies style and
becomingness as well, study the mod
els shown here.
Fig. l shows a French hat woven In
-'’Be piece and faced with a deml
facing of black velvet. It Is so alto
gether charming that It will tempt the
t Price of a much more elaborate effort
; from almost any discriminating buy
er. Nothing could be simpler than Its
decoration of two pheasant feathers
counted with a big. Jeweled straw,
tabochon. This counting of two long
quills gives them an Importance which
places them In the "chanticler” class
at once. And one must not complain
at the high price of a "chanticler" pat
tern. This Is really one of the most
beautifully balanced shapes which Is
to be found. Call It the "hen-pheas
ant” model and cheerfully part with
200 francs for it in Paris. It will
finally dawn upon those who observe
that there are other things to a hat
besides trimmings.
Fig. 2. of which two views are
shown, is an American model In
royal blue and white braid. The brim
Is soft and beautifully draped, and
the whole make up of the hat chowa
the handiwork of an artist In mil
linery. Folded velvet Is thrust
through the brim at the left and ex
tends across the back and disappears
under the brim at the right side. Two
blue wings spring out of the crown.
A flower hatpin holds the turban in
place, but is no part of the design.
This is a very commendable design,
and this is true of its modest price.
Nothing could be more unpreten
tious or more finished than a simple
hat now much worn. This Is of a dura
ble braid In burnt straw color, faced
with black satin ribbon. The ribbon,
bordered with braid, is laid in a scant
fiat rosette and finished with four
"ears." The crown is very large, but
a model similarly trimmed, having a
smaller crown, has been made and ts
even more successful than the orl
The American models are hand
made of rows of braid sewed to
ge-her. The braids are light in
weight, very soft and of high luster
There is nothing rigid or heavy about
the shapes, and they are altogether
The dress we show here Is pretty In
tts simplicity. It may be made np In
white material. A plastron is taken
down the center front, the bodice and ;
skirt joining it with a wrapped seam;
a strap of silk edges the foot of skirt,
also the over-sleeves, and another is
taken over the shoulders, while the
lace yoke is edged by a small plastron
of silk. The under-sleeves are of lace
to match the yoke. •
Materials required: Six yards 44
Inches wide, one doien butto&a. two
yards lace, two yards silk.
Lace Insertion Is the Most Popular of
the Designs Sanctioned by
Instead of a lengthy embroidering
process on the stocking Instep, lace is
substituted as an insert.
This work Is usually done on the
black or the white stocking, and the
lace chosen Is let In in a diamond
shaped piece—a very elongated and
narrow diamond.
The long strip of Insertion, or all
over lace, is basted upon the Instep
just where it will show above the slip
per. A diamond shape is then out
.ined with white thread, and over this
is w orked a solid band of over-and
over stitch in floss to match the
stocking, and about an eighth of an
inch wide.
This done, the remaining Caps of
the lace, outside of the diamond, are
cut away and then the stocking is
tyrned and that part oj it beneath the
diamond of lace is clipped carefully
If your work is well done, stocking
and lace will not pull apart.
This Is a lacy relief from the regu
lation embroidery and will prove
beautiful for your friend, the June
For the Dressing Tablt.
A convenient set of three small
consecutive bags, which will pr0T#
wonderfully convenient if hung beside
the dressing table, is made from a
yard length of pompadour, dresden or
plain sash ribbon divided into three
equal parts, folded into bag shape the
sides overcast missing b*>a<js' br
matching their color, if the selvage
and the tops equipped with sets cf
rather long ribbon hangers, which jo!a
under a big rosette or a silk-coverel
cabochon. The same design may be
used for a desk accessory for preserv
ing special scraps of paper, bv mi.
king the triplet bags of chamois, bor
dered with ribbon and decorated with
the embroidered initials of the owner,
each bag compartment bearing a dif
ferent letter.
Easy to Arrange. Though Much De
pends Upon the Quality of Ma
terial That la Used.
ft la possible to join lace so tbe
joining is almost entirely concealed.
This is managed in several ways,
much depending upon the kind of lace
and how it is used.
Pot a yoke or other solid surface
that is to Ue fiat it is better to ap
plique the lace together. Cut out the
desigo Irregularly and join It to the
ander piece so that It continues the
pattern. The edges are buttonholed,
sewed or overcast together according
to which stitch shows least. Do this
with fine thread and cut away all
ragged edges.
Ftor firmness ft win usually be
found necessary to join the under side
ulna In thin case make the stitches
on right aide small.
Where lace la to he joined for a ruf
fie the beet way to do ft la to button
hole the edges together ta the tiniest
possible seam Use n fine thread and
do the stitching neatly. This same
method is often used on yoke* and for
thin laces is better, perhaps, than ap
pliqueing. Press the edges open ©a
right side between thumb and first
finger so It does not pucker.
Some persons lap the edges of the
tace so that the wrong side of the left
side lies for about a quarter of an Inca
upon the right side of the under piece
Both ends are then hemmed in tiny
stitches. This prevents a seam, hut is
almost impossible to do without
Never Join lace by sewing ta a
FYench seam, as ft ta entirely too
bulky, and. no matter bow carefully
done, will not look neat Above al.
do not content yourself with sewing
in a single seam. The edges carl
badly at first washing and the lace it
