Formalin for Fruits.
Some important experiments on the
preservation of ripe fruits by means of
formalin have recently been carried out
at the Jodrall laboratory , Kew , says the
Luiiuoii Globe. ii the fruit is one -which
is eaten without peeling , as the straw
berry or raspberry , it is , first of all ,
Immersed for ten minutes in cold wa
ter containing 3 per cent of commercial
formalin. It is then taken out , and
allowed to remain five minutes in cold
water. If the fruit is one ofwhich the
skin or rind is not eaten , the latter
treatment is omitted. It was found
that damsons thus treated kept nine
days , Victoria plums five days , black
currants five days and red currants
four days longer than fruit not so
Pitted or slightly diseased apples
thus treated were found to keep sev
eral weeks longer. It is pointed out
that the spoiling of ripe fruit is often
due to the various bacteria and fer
ments occurring-on their surfaces. The
development of these is prevented by
the formalin. It is 'suggested that the
use of formalin may render it possible
to bring certain perishable ripe fruits
from distant countries. >

How to get enough qualified teachers
for its schools is a problem which con

member of its board of education re
cently introduced a resolution instruct
ing the superintendent to ascertain If
teachers cannot be obtained from oth

dred vacancies. With salaries begin
ning in the lowest grades at six hun
dred dollars a year , and increasing at
the rate of "forty dollars for each year
of service , the pay is much better than
that offered in smaller towns" ; but it
costs more to live in New York , and
one does not .get so much for .one's
money in the way of pleasant human
intercourse as in the country.
In the acquittal of Judge Loving , at
Houston , Va. , of the murder of young
Estes , advocates "of the "unwritten
law" are finding a great deal of satis
faction. It should be remembered by
them , however , that while the unwrit
ten law was pleaded in justification of
Judge Loving's act his counsel saw fit
to couple with his plea that of emo
tional insanity wJiich was the basis of
the jury's verdict Therefore , It does
not seem that advocates of the unwrit-
taz law have much cause for the satis
faction they express. Judge Loving's
acquittal may yet prove to have been
a matter of sentiment more. than of
justice. The judge had been in his
better days a conspicuous political fig
ure and a social factor In his county.
He had friends everywhere , and almost
as many in adjoining counties as In
his own. The crime of which he was
charged was caused by representations
which always appeal most strongly to
men of the South ; yet those represen
tations remain questionable , the prose
cution not being able to introduce im
peaching testimony. '
A learned English physician , Sir
James Crichton-Browne , comes forward
to tell you that you eat too much. But
you know that already. Your own
stomach has told you so many a time.
Yet you have gone on heedlessly , just
as though you were put here to live to
eat , rather than to eat to live. Eating
is largely a matter of habit almost as
much of a habit as drinking whisky ,
smoking a pipe or sleeping several
hours a day. Neither whisky nor to
bacco Is necessary to the well-being of
any man. Neither Is ten hours' sleep.
No more are three meals a day , espe
cially in hot weather. Is it any wonder
that you fret and fume and grumble
at the heat when the mercury gets up
into the 90s , when you go around with
your stomach distended an-1 sagging
with a lot of unnecessary food ? What
good does it do you to fill up on beef
steak , potatoes , pie nnd pudding and
to go around sweating like a carthorse ,
when you could get along with one-half
or one-third of the food which you
crowd into your stomach on a hot day ?
Yes , what good does It do you ? The
human stomach has been compared to a
furnace , which burns up food as a lo
comotive burns up coal. But the care
ful fireman never overloads his engine ,
though his tender may be heaped up
and running over with coal , but you
overload your stomach simply because
there is an abundance of food on the
table. The result Is that you are dull
and stupid afterward , and are com
pelled to slow down In your work , just
as an engine would do if It were choked
with coal until there was no draft to
consume it You think you are gener
ating energy when you are only Invit
ing discomfort Gentle reader , and still
gentler purchaser , allow us to suggest
a little plan tcTyou. Try two meals a
day for a while. It cannot possibly
hurt you. You may lose a little avoir
dupois at first , but you will experience
a joy in living such as you have never
dreamed of before.
STAH BEHIND THE CUB-TAUT.
Besides Technical KnorrledRre She.
Must Possess Diplomacy and Tact.
The star lady who now comes from
the front of the house , feeling her way
to the stage with the box-office gentle

yelling to the electrician for "house
lights for Miss X " this star lady
has learned Ite necessity of watching
that unruly member , ' her tongue , and
also of picking her friendships with un
erring aim , says a writer in the Book
man. Repression , diplomacy , instinctive
judging of men and women , are some of
the unadmitted qualities that make a
star. It is not all bursting genius and
technical knowledge of the stage. She
must be a diplomat and a business wo
man. If the company Is small , as a
rule , all other members are presented
to her. Many of them she may know ,
and she moves from one group to another - j
other , recalling old associations 'and
laughing over old-time escapades. The
head of a company is no snob. She
may conduct herself before her people
during the working hours with dignity
and reserve , she may confer with the
leading actors , showing them much deference - ,
erence , while with the smaller members -
bers she may have very Tttle to do , but
in her friendships she gives herself
great leeway , and the girl with whom
she is most intimate out of the theater
is more often than not a subordinate in
her company. j
When the reading of the play begins
she cits by the side of the author at
the table , the company fills the half

portfolio containing the manuscript Is

critical audience than this first one.

Old Ironsides at anchor lay ,
In the harbor of Mahoa ;
A dead calm rested on the bay
The waves to sleep had gone ;
When little Hal , the captain's son ,
A lad both brave and good ,
In sport , up shroud and rigging ran ,
And on the main-truck stood !
A shudder shot through every vein ;
All eyes were turned on high !
.There stood the boy , with dizzy brain ,
Between the sea and sky.
No hold had he above , below ;
Alone he stood in air ;
To that far height none dared to geNe
No aid could reach him there.
We gazed , but not a man could speak !
With horror all aghast
In groups , with pallid brow and cheek ,
We watched the quivering mast.
The atmosphere grew thick and hot ,
And of a lurid hue
As riveted unto the spot
Stood officers and crew.
The father came on deck. lie gasped ,
" 0 God ! Thy will bo tlone I"
Then suddenly a rifle grasped
And aimed it at his son.
"Jump , far out , boy , into the wave !
Jump , or I fire , " he said.
"That only chance your life can save ;
Jump , jump , boy ! " He obeyed.
He sank he rose he lived he moved ,
And for the ship struck out.
On board we hailed the lad beloved
With many a manly shout.
The father drew , in silent joy ,
Those wet arms round his neck ,
And folded to his heart Lis boy
Then fainted on the deck.
RYAN TO GROW PEANUTS.
Go to Africa Soon , to Look. Over
When Thomas F. Ryan interests him
self in any enterprise he is more thanv
likely to get everything out of it that
can be made to yield a profit , says the
New York Tribune. When he acquired
the 70,000 acres in the Kongo district
it was generally supposed that he
would be satisfied with the gold , copper
and rubber in sight there. But Mr.
Ryan , as a Virginian , knows the poten
tiality of rich soil , and as there would
be many thousands of idle acres in the
Kongo principality which he had ac
quired , and as his idle land would not
yield any of the three great crops frois
whlcn the greater part of his profit was
supposed to come , he determined to put
itto practical use.
Virginia is a great peanut State. Ths
soil conditions in Mr. Ryan's Kongo
domain are peculiarly well fitted for
peanut culture. The best-paying grade
of peanuts that come from the Virginia
market are the so-called Jumbo variety ,
a large , rich nut , abounding in oil and
general all-around nutrition.
Mr. Ryan is going to raise Jumbo
peanuts in his mid-African property.
These Jumbo peanuts will bring a big
price in this market , and will be in
strumental in breaking many a corner
as now engineered by the shellers in
Mr. Ryan's own State. Men with all
technical knowledge of the matter have
been sent to the Kongo.
Probably the most-used peanut is
what Is called the Spanish , an offshoot
of what used to be exclusively grown
in Spain. This is the little round pea
nut so much used for salting. In Vir
ginia a greater part of the crop grown
there is called Spanish No. 1. When
the crop is short there the original
Spanish is imported from Spain , but
in fact , it is grown in Northern Africa.
The conditions of the Virginia soil
make It superior for this nut over any
other section in the world except the
The Junibo variety brings the highest
price , however , and naturally it was
that variety that Mr. Ryan selected for
his crop. He will later grow the Span
ish peanut , which , although cheaper ,
has a greater sale than the Jumbo. But
Mr. Ryan's advisers , knowing that the
Jumbo would have the greater sale if
the price were lower , advised him to
try that grade first And that is the
grade that Mr. Ryan will grow in the
Kongo district , and from the proceeds
thereof he hopes to be able to pay no
Inconsiderable part of the expenses of
the working of his rubber plantations ,
gold mines and copper enterprises.
The accumulation of tartar on the
teeth makes them unsightly and is of
ten the cause of a bad breath. If the
teeth are properly brushed each .day
tartar will not have the chance to ac
cumulate , but if it has already been
allowed to do so it can be removed by
a very simple treatment Moisten the
toothbrush In warm water and dip it
Into magnesia. Rub on the teeth , and
after three applications the tartar will
have entirely disappeared.
