A letter from Elmvroocl received this
week is too long and too aesthetic for
our columns. It has one other hin
drance to publication. It is written on
both sides of tha paper. Our rules are
imperative in this matter and writers
must conform to them.
. We do not want to discourage any
of our youn2 friends from writing to
us, but yet we are obliged to ask, those
who desire to appear in print to use
discretion in the length and matter of
their communications, and to bear in
mind that the editor is a busy hard
worked man, wiih plenty to do always,
and that reading badly spelled MSS.

they cannot spell any other way, and
re-write their letters. There is nothing
of real value accomplished in this world

have gone to chewing gum to drown

(Jiris, drtn't Do It.
"'Don't do what" our fair readera will
ask. There are a great many things
you ought to do. and still a great num
ber that you had better not do. Fore
most and prominent among the latter
is to reform a drunkard by marrying
him. Depend upou it, if you cannot
keep him sober during those days of
the average woman's strongest influ
ence over wayward men, the season of
courtship, the chances will be against
success. Some women have succeeded
in this labor of love, but there are ten
thousand failures to one success. It
is a field of missionery labor that few
of the sex are fitted to enter. If John
gets drunk once a month while he is
billing and cooing, depend upon it lie

Bacchanalian recreation when he be
comes a Benedict A man . who gets
drunk is necessarily a bad or foolish
man when he is under the influence of
liquor, and is very apt to soon become
a bad man whether drunk or sober.
The romantic idea, that a woman who
can reform a drunkard is . deserving a
crown of glory, is all the veriest bosh.
They would be shocked by the sug
gestion that a man who marries a fallen
woman and restores her to a life of vir

mankind. . ; . 1 '

FOR THE HOUSEHOLD;
- Oat Meat.; Gripdlb Cases. One
and one half cups, oatmeal,, two -tea-spoonfuls
of sugar, a pinch of salt,one
feurth of a teaspoonful. of soda. .Stir
well together and let-it stand -over
jtight; then add one egg, one cup of
milk, flour enough to make the battef.
right to bake.. Bake on a griddle as

Brown Bread. Several hav asked
for a receipt ef this celebrated -New
England bread which is often called
Boston brown bread. The following has
been thoroughly tested and approved.
Indian and rye meal, one quart each.
Milk, 3 pints; soda and salt, two tea
spoonfuls each; molasses, 4 of a cup
ful. Steam for five hours, at the end
of which time ' set the pan in a hot
oven long enough to well brown the
crust. . . f .
Croquettes. Because of, their
French name and of the high price
charged at restaurants, many have the
impression that they are far too expen
sive far ordinary families. This is a
mistake, as tliey afford a most accept
able ferin in which to use up the rem
nants of fowl, game, meats, eta When
presentable bits can no longer be cut
from a turkey, chicken, or other bird3,
or there are the remnants of veal, mut
ton, venison, or even fish, an excellent
breakfast or supper dish may be made.
The material is to be chopped fine ; one
half to one-fourth as much bread
crumbs or mashed potato, a well-beaten
egg to each cupful of the mixture, to
bind it together, and if too dry to make
into balls, add gravy, or if none is at
hand melted butter, salt, pepper, and
whatever seasoning may be fancied,
such as parsley and other herbs ; a tri
fle ef onion, catsup, etc. Make into
rolls, balls, or mold in a wine-glass.
Dip in egg, roll in powdered cracker,
and fry, having the fat very hot, to a
light brown. Properly made they will
take up no fat. Some omit the egg
and cracker and simply flour them.
They may be cooked in advance, and
warmed through when wanted by pla
cing in an oven. Seiaps of several
meats may be combined, and a little
ham will greatly improve the flavor of
those made of Yeal. , ;
A Sensible Mother. It is really
pitiful to see a g-od, conscientious lit
tle mother resolutely shutting herself
away from so much that is best and
sweetest in her children's lives, for the
sake of raffling their dresses and tuck
ing their petticoats. How surprised
and grieved she will be to find that her
boys and girls, at sixteen regard "moth
er" chiefly as- a most excellent person
to keep shirts in order and to make
new dresses, and not as one to whom
they cae to go for social companion
ship 1 Yet, before they are snubbed out
of it by repeated rebuffs, snch as "Run
away, I'm too busy to listen to your
nonsnnse," children naturally go to
their mothers with .ill their sorrows
and pleasures; and if "mother" can
only enter into all their little plans,
how pleased they are! Such . a shout
of delight as I heard last summer from
Mrs. Friendly's croquet-ground, where
her two little girls were playing ! -Oh.
goody, goody, mamma is coming to play
with us!" She is a busy mother, too,
and I know would have much referr
ed to use what few moments of recre
ation she could snatch, for something'
more interesting than playing croquet
with little children not much taller
than their mallets. She has eften said
to me, "I cannot let my children grow
away from me, I must keep right along
with them all the time, and whether
it is croquot with the littlo ones, or
Latin grammar and base-ball with tho
boys, or French dictation and sash-rih-bons
with the girls, I must 'be in it as
far as I can." -From" Letters to a young
Mother Scribner for March.
'. ' 1 i. f -.It
was only a few years .ago that
swine breeders were viewing with each
other for the greatest weight of carcas;
but this is now all changed. Hogs that
will weigh 500 pounds are sold at a
less price per pound than those ef 250
and 300 pounds. . The market iu Eng
land has long favored light weights.
London is chiefly supplied with pigs f
not less than 200 pounds weight. And
this tendency of the . market : to pigs
well fatted, butof small wighr,isjust
what the farmers should encourage,
for it is exactly in the line of his inter
est. It costs more to make the second
hundred pounds of a pig than the first
and still more to make the third hun
dred pounds, and so every pound adr
ded becomes more expensive. 1
There had been a discussion about
the cost of a dress, and she was wrathy.
?It's all very well," she pouted, "for
you to expect a woman to be an angel;
but I'd have you know, sir, that I
wouldn't be even an angd'un!ess my
wings could be .cut . goring. There,
now!" JSt, Lou is i Republican.
