SOUL OF A LITTLE CK5LD.
Nearly all women are fon.5 of jew
els, and one of the most acceptable
Sifts they can receive is a valuable
piece of Jewelry. They take great
pleasure In wearing it, or looking at It
and showing it to others, and they are
hrery careful not to injure it or to lose
ft; but far more precious than rubles
or the most costly Jewels of earth are
the souls of the little children commit
ted to their charge and often so light
ly Talued by them, says the Charles
ton News and Courier. Few mothers,
no matter how bad they may be In
other respects, are indifferent to the
health and comfort of their children;
and there are few mothers who will
pot sacrifice a great deal In order to
secure these things for their little
ones. In the care of this precious
trust even a conscientious mother
often errs, because she does not rea
lise clearly enough how sensitive a
child's mind is, and how quick to note
very word and action of those around
him. It is not enough for parents to
fulfill the promises given at the bap
tism of their child, that they will see
that he is taught "those things neces
sary for his "soul's health" In the
form of prayers and his religious du
ties; for unless the lives they lead in
the home agree in every particular
with what they teach him. their labor
will likely be in vain, so far does the
force of example outweigh the spoken
Danger of injury is not the strongest
objection to sending the Liberty bell
across the continent, That is to be
considered, but there are reasons
enough why the bell should stay at
home without Imagining impossible
perils. It should stay at home because
it belongs here, says the Philadelphia
Ledger. It derives its significance
from its association with the old state
house, where it should remain en
shrined. People come from all parts
, of the world to visit Independence
"halL They have heard of the old beU
and look for it there. The shrine of
liberty seems to have lost one of Its
Jewels when the bell is not there. To
take it away is to desecrate this na
tional sanctuary. There is scarcely
more reason for lending out the beU
for exhibitions elsewhere than there
would be for a similar misuse of the
table on which the Declaration was
signed or any similar object of patriot
ic Interest, Their Interest comes from
and belongs to the place.
Mexico went to the gold basis in
good season. She has long been noted
for her rich silver mines. In fact, she
is by far the greatest silver producing
country in the world. Her output of
gold has also been considerable,
though she ranks low in that respect
as compared with the United States
and several other nations. But she
may do better from now on. It is an
nounced that the richest placer gold
fields ever found there have been dis
covered in the state of Oaxaca. The
deposits are found in an area of 22.000
acres, and if the proportion of gold
reported shall hold out there will be

There was a birthday party at
Pasadena, Cat. which had some rather
unusual features. The affair was given
in honor of a young lady who had Just
reached eighteen and who was the Ju
nior member of the family. The
mother of the five children died sev
eral years ago, leaving an estate of
:.000,000 and a will providing for dis
tributing the fortune when the young
est should come of age. So the party
was made the occasion of disposing of
the money, and the "favors" to the
five consisted of their shares of the
big estate. It is quite likely the par
ticipants in the distribution quite en
joyed the unique addition to ordinary
"doings" at such functions.

SEVERAL DETROIT STARS
HAVE BROTHERS IN GAKE
Younger Members of Families Striv
ing to Win Fame and Money
on the Ball Field.
It is a singular fact that nearly half
of the members of the Detroit ball
club have brothers who are striving
with great ambition to win a place
in the big leagues. Up to date but
one has attracted big-league attention.
He is Paul Cobb, brother of Tyrus.
St Louis Americans drafted him at
the close of the 1908 season. He was
not even tried out this spring with the
majors, and Manager Jimmy McAleer
is now trying to sell him to a minor
league club. Charley Schmidt has a
brother, a catcher, also, with the
Memphis club. and. from all accounts.
he promises to develop into a good
ball player. In fact, Memphis has
turned him over to a Carolina Associ
ation club for development.
Davy Jones has a brother who as
pires to follow In the footsteps of his
famous brother. Eddie Lafitte has a
brother, a tall, rangy chap, who would
like to become another Charley Ben
nett or a Johnny Kling. He looks
promising, also. Charley O'Leary's
brother is an infielder of class, but a
weak hitter. He was with Rockford

his brother the other day and re

the bench, and that is to run bases.'
It is a remarkable fact that in base
ball the name of Jennings only har
monises when Hughey prefaces it. In
the big Jennings family only two

and remarkable success. The other
only played for the pastime it af
forded him. Yet six other husky Jen

BIG LEAGUE SCOUTS WATCH
WINNING TEAMS OF MINORS
Most Desirable Men Are Those Who
Have Played on Flag Win
It's great to be a member of a pen
nant winning club ' in the minor
leagues, for It is the winning teams
that the big league scouts pay the
most attention to. and. as a result.
it is the members of championship
clubs that secure the opportunity
to get a trial with the big
of championship clubs that secure the
opportunity to get a trial with the big:
leaguers. It may be that the recruits;
will not make good, but nevertheless
they do not lose much at that. When
drafted or bought by the big leaguer
in the fall, they are generally tendered:
a contract in excess of what they re
ceived in the minor leagues. Then, in
the event of their going back to the
bushes, the club acquiring them hast
to assume their big league contract
for that year at any rate.
The crop of minor league pennant-;
winning players that was bought and
drafted by the big leaguers last year
was a large one, numbering about fifty'
or sixty men. Of this number over
twenty are still carried on the major
league rosters. Cleveland has three
in- Sitton, who was with the Jackson
ville and Nashville pennant-winning
clubs of the South Atlantic and South
ern leagues last season; Easterly, who
helped Los Angeles win the bunting lnj
the Pacific Coast league, and Goode,
whose batting and base-running aided
Akron to take down the O. and P.
league championship. ,
New York Americans have six men
who were with minor league cham
pions in 1908. Vaughn of Scranton.
Cree and Warhop of William port.
Knight and Schmidt of Baltimore, and

Passing of Jack Taylor.
The release of Pitcher Jack Taylor
who helped to keep the Columbus club"
up in the race in the American assoda-'
tion last year, means the passing ot
Jack Taylor from the big leagues, fori
it is not likely that any other club in
the association will take a chance on
him now that Columbus has nass
him up. Taylor has been a notable
pitcher for the past IS rears and h

Laundry work at home would be
much more satisfactory if the right
Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it is usually neces
sary to use so much starch that the
beauty and fineness of the fabric is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear
ing quality of the goods. This trou
ble can be entirely overcome by using
Defiance Starch, as it can be applied
much more thinly because of its great.

Most Effective Method of Cleaning
Table Knives Bake Fish in Paper
Easy Way to Remove
Grease from Carpets.
Cleaning Knives. Many a house
keeper finds it most discouraging to
seep me niaues oi
her table knives
and bright. They
should always be
clean and rubbed
with soft flannel
only. If they are spotted, rub some
,-wood ashes on a freshly-cut piece of
Irish potato and scour the knife blade
with it- Ivory-handled knives should
never be dipped In hot water, as the
iheat turns the ivory yellow. When
:not. in use, expensive knives should
!be carefully wrapped In tissue paper
land kept In a box in a drawer of the
Bake Fish In Paper. The following
method does away with fishy dishes,
disagreeable odors, etc: Clean and
wash the fish thoroughly, salt, pepper.
,and flour it inside and out (sparingly).
then roll in manila paper at least
three times. Pinch the ends of the
paper together, then fold back, and
ipin securely, to prevent the escape of
i the juices. Bake in a moderate OTen'.
and allow 15 minutes more than if
baking the same fish in a pan. When
ready to serve, remove the paper, to
which the skin will adhere, and place
the delicious, juicy meat upon the
platter. Garnish as desired. Wom-
jan's Home Companion.
Grease on Carpets. An excellent
paste for getting grease from carpets
is made by mixing fuller's earth with
ammonia and water. Apply the mix
ture thick; let it remain over night.
then remove with a stiff brush. The
ammonia may be omitted if the colors
in the carpet are delicate. After the
grease is out the colors may be fresh
ened by sweeping with moist salt.
Things to Know. To keep milk
toast from being soggy, serve the
boiling buttered milk in a covered
pitcner, so tnat each individual may
pour it himself over his toast. Wet
.shoes should be stuffed with paper be
fore putting away. The paper will ab
sorb the moisture and keep the shoes
.from becoming hard. When paint
sticks to glass it can be removed with
hot vinegar. A porcelain tub or sink
may tie thoroughly cleansed with a
.flannel dipped in spirits of turpentine.
To destroy ants in a house, dip an old
sponge into sweetened water and lay
it where they can get at it. They will
all swarm around it, when it may be
taken up and thrown into boiling wa
iter. To polish zinc, rub briskly with
a cloth dipped in kerosene, and rinse
off with boiling water. When soaking
mackerel or other salt fish, see that
the skin side is placed uppermost. It

The little sponge cakes, usually des
ignated as "lady fingers," are used
for this dainty. These are divided and
packed as full as the narrow pieces
will hold with fresh strawberries. A
thick coating of whipped cream covers
the berries, and the top of the ""finger
is put on after the filling has been ar
ranged. Arrange in a flat platter with
whipped cream over all and a bright
line at the edge of strawberries.
Slice six or eight egss and put in a
pudding dish with one pint of sauce

of two tablespoons grated cheese is

bread crumbs and brown in the oven.

For porcelain bath tubs and gal
vanized wash tubs there is nothing
I better than kerosene. Use a small
brush when dirty. It will remove an
gummy substances tnat so often
gather around the edge of a tub.

of pan; if it 'sizzles' as when you
touch a hot iron, the baking is done.
This is an infallible test. There will
