Editor Herald: It gives me great
pleasure to read the L-tter Box. I
h ive been reading it ever since you
gave it room in your well filled paper,
and I sae there articles from all parts
of the county except Mount Pleasant,
and I thought, that you would like to
hear from ner. We have nice times
here. We have Sabbath school every
Sabbath, E. A Kirkp itrick is our Sup
erintendent, and he is a very goo I one.
After S:Vbntb. school thare is preach
ing by brother Mirquett; he is the
right man in the right p'ace. On Sat
urday nighi we hive Good Templar's
lodge. We have the oldest lodge in
the state. It has been running for
eleven years, and is in a flourishing
condition yet. In the Lodge we have
debates and they m ike times lively.
The boys play base ball etery Satur
day afternoon. Then there is the
Grange, that is still doing its work.
For fear of taking up toomach tim,
and spoiling your good paper, we think
it best to stop tLh tim. Good bye.

An Apple Meringue. This .is a
delicate, quite showy dish, easy to"
make and good' when it is done. It
needs good apples, that is. those? with
a sprightly flavor; pare, quarter, and
remove the cores; stew in a bright tin
or enameled sauce-pan, with sugar to'
taste, and a little cinnamon; as soon
as the apples are done through, having
kept the quarters as whole a possible,
turn them into a pudding-dish being
careful not to break them up. "While
the apples are cooking get the meringue
(pronounce it always meerang) ready.
For a moderate sized dish use the
whites of four eggs beaten to a firm
froth, fourounco of sugar, and flavor
with lemon; spread this over the ap
ples in the dish, set the dish in the ov
en, and bake until the surface is well
and evenly browned. Serve hot for
desert or cold with cream.
Table Mat. A nice mat for very
hot dishes is made of two circular
pieces of heavy brown paper, each cov
ered with scarlet flannel, or .white, if
you prefer. On one side sew porcelain
buttons wnite centered ones with
scarlet borders are the prettiest in
the form of a star or stars, diamonds
or squires, -with a double row round
the edge. Lastly, join the two pieces
together bv top stitching the edges all
around. You may make them also of
an oblong form fir vegetable dishes
or meat platters. Aunt Addie.
Dessert of Apples Make of a
pound of sugar a rich syrup; into this
put a pound of apples pared and cored,
and stew till they are soft; mix thein
sraoo hly with the syrup, and form into
a mold. Into a pint of cream or new
milk s.ir the yolks of two eggs, a half
a cup of sup,ar, a spoonful of rose wa
ter, and let the who'.e boil in a farina
kettle. When cool pour it around the
apples, and srve.
The "Baby Boofcs" have and aie
still having a tremendous run. Of the
first and best "Helen's Babies," there
have leen over 100,000 copies sold in
this country, while, in England it has
been published by six different houses,
and is selling verv rapidly. "6ome Oth
er Babies," by Niel Forest, has only
been out about three weeks, and there
have been over twenty thousand cop
ies sold, and the publishers have their
hands full supplying the increasing de
mand. The latest ven ure, "The An
nals of a B iby." is having a good sa e;
10.000 copies iiave been worked since
February 1, the day of its publication.
Daily Care of house Plants. In
many instances when the contents of
flower-po.s are sprinkled daily with
water the soil at the middle will be
come hard and dry. When the ball of
earth becomes dry it takes water a
Jong time to penetrate it. and surface
wa.erings do not accomplish the object.
In this case set the pot iu a pail of wat
er and let it soak un.il the ear.h is
thorjiighly wetted through. If prop
er care in the respects above mention
ed fails to induce a proper gr.iwth, then
the p'.an: must be repotted with fresh
ear h and h..Y a por.ion of ;ts top cut
back. Irregu arities iu shape most be
correc ed from time to time by pinch
ing off the shoots which may stare to
grow out of place.
The red spider is quite adverse to
moisture; he green fly however, likes
it but may be destroyed so readily by
tobacco smoke that only neglected
plants will suffer from this cause. The
mealy-bug is so large that it may be
easily picked off. Watering must be
properly a:tended to and while the
plants must not suffer from lack of
moisture the roola mut not be kept
saturated with water. The sound of
the pot when struck by the knuckles
is quite different when the ball of earth -is
wet from what it is when dry. This
and the lagging look of the plant will
indicate that water is needed. . A
little practice will soon enable one to
anticipate the wants of the plant and
tosuply water a. the proper time. AV
One of the most noticeabl occurences
of recent times is the purchase of ten
thousand American plows by the Rus
sian Government, for distribution
among the farmers cf Russia. There
is more in this than wou'.d seem to be
at first sigiit. It is certainly a great
com intent as wcl. as a valuable ac
knowledgement of inv-rit to American
agricultural implement makers, but. it
implies that iho coinpe.ti.ion of Amer
ican farmers in the European grain
trade has touched what has been con
sidered an. invunerable spot. The
wheat growers of Soathe.n Russia sap
ply what is known as the Black Sea
trade, and being much nearer to the
raiu ket than we are, their wheat Ins
had a great advantage over ours. But
American wheat has displaced the
Russian wheat, to a considerable ex
tent, in English rairket and the Rus
sian farmers have now to exert them
selves to hold even a portion in that
trade. Hrnee it is determined to try
the plows we are using, with a view
to produce wheat more cheaply than
hitherto. But there is something e's
needed. The roan that holds the plow
is of more account than the plow, and
there are no farmers in the world who
are more inteligent or more skillful
than American farmers. But we can
not afford to rest on what we have
gained. The important fact here no
ticed shows that our competitors are
by no means idle, and intend to im
prove their methods of work as far as
possible. We oust rseet their Inr
proversents by ethers of c-r cr.
