RAISING GARDEN HERBS.
This Is a Practical Occupation Open
to a Woman Thrown on Ear
Among the practical occupation
open to women that are thrown upon
their own resources without previous
training in any sort of business is thai
of raising garden herbs.
There has never been a sufficiency ol
seasoning herbs to be had at any mar
ket; parsley, thyme, sweet marjoram,
bay leaf, mint, are always in demand
by those who know their value in the
proper cooking of savory dishes. Theii
raising is neither difficult nor expen
sive. A small piece of ground will sup
ply any large private market establish
ment or green grocer, and it is work
that even a delicate woman can under
take. But she must, first of all, instruct
herself in the nature of the soil need
ed, the amount of sunshine, water and
general habits of the things she is
going to raise. To do this it is only
necessary for her to visit any good li
brary and study books on the subject,
making notes and really learning, just
as if she were at school.
Then she must study how to get the
very best plants for her purpose; all
florists and agriculturists are glad to
send catalogues for the asking, and,
while the gorgeous cuts exaggerate the
fecundity and appearance of their
wares, such catalogues are a help.
Once she knows the right soil to pre
pare, the rest is easy. If she has no
boy neighbor to call upon to measure
and define the various beds, she can
simply tie stout cords to sticks stuck
in the ground to keep one variety from
running over the other. The spading
she may have to hire done, and the
pulverizing of the soil, which is very
essential to success, most failures be
ing due to the caking of imperfectly
prepared ground that either carries ofT
the water that is applied or allows it
to stand without penetrating the earth
to reach the roots of thirsty plants.
Take the fragrant garden mint as a
very fair example of an herb that is
well worth cultivating. I have seen a
single root spread in a couple of years
over a 12-foot square of ground, and ib
healthy sprigs are always in demand.
The woman who wills to do so can
find a market for her mint the year
round, if she will care that it will not
freeze. Sweet marjoram grows fast
also, as do all these seasoning herbs,
and needs but little care when once
started. Curly parsley makes a lovely
garnishing for a dish of croquettes or
for any sort of broiled meats or fish,
and never can there be too much
If to these be added chives and len
tils, there are always purchasers for
these greens that make such delicious
spring salads. But this business must
be properly attended to if there is to be
a livelihood in it; like everything
else in this world, it amounts to noth
ing without a certain amount of care
and trouble. If there is a sudden bliz
zard the plants must be protected; it
the midsummer sun is too hot, some
sort of shade must be evolved, and so
on through the list of watchful precau
tions that are necessities to success.

LEARNING TO BE HANGMAN
The New Incumbent Has Grewsome
Rehearsals of His Unen
Several executions took place recent
ly at Pentonville prison on the scaf
fold which has been the scene of the
final exit of numerous notorious crim
inals, relates London Mail.
The executioner was Alec Taylor,
the newly appointed common hangman,
and the subjects "hanged" in set form
were lay figures of cloth and sand.
It is, of course, essential that the
official that has to carry out the last
dread sentence of the law should first
thoroughly learn the technique of his
grewsome profession to insure that
when the time comes all the opera
tions will happen decently and in or
der. Therefore each new hangman
Immediately after his appointment
goes through a realistic course of
training. In pursuance of this policy,
Taylor, under the guidance of ex
perienced prison officials who have as
sisted at many executions, is now serv
ing his apprenticeship.
Several sandbags shaped to repre
sent men of different weights wert
supplied for Taylor's practice. He was
instructed that men of varying builds
should be given certain prescribed
drops" to effect instantaneous death.
Then a sandbag made to the rough
semblance and weight of a man was
placed on the scaffold flap. Taylor
was told the weight, the noose was
properly adjusted, the reqnisite drop
arranged for and the lever pulled.
This experiment was performed again
and again with differently weighted
The other part of the hangman's
training, the pinioning of a con
demned prisoner, was even more real
istic For the time being stalwart
warders posed as condemned murder
ers. Taylor, practicing on them, was
shown the quickest and most effective
way of securing the hands and feet
Beat one-half cup butter with one
cup of sugar until you have a pert set
cream. Add one-half teaspoonful soda
dissolved in one-half cup sour cream
and stir into the mixture of cream and
sugar. Then add, beating until very
light, two and one-half cupfuls of flour
and nut meats, if preferred to fruit
Flavor with vanilla and drop spoonfuls
on a buttered sheet or pan, and bake
in a moderate oven.
Matting should not be washed with
soapy water. A strong solution of salt
water cleans matting, and makes it
look quite new. In laying matting
place one or two thicknesses of old
newspapers underneath it for it al

the pieces of dust covered paper can be

Witness Makes Pert Reply.
"Of course you know how many
minutes there are to an hour," said
a lawyer to a witness in an English
court "Well," said the witness, after
pondering a while, "let's hear your

No Chance for the Vrivolous.
Old Tom Cbrwin, as he was famil
iarly known, governor of Ohio, TJnltea
States senator and secretary of the
treasury in Fillmore's cabinet, used
to say: "Be solemn all the monu
ments are raised to solemn asses."
One or two things one must possess
either true piety or true philosophy.
One must either have learnt to say,
"Father! Thy will be done!" or else,
"Nature, I revere thy laws, even when
I am crushed beneath them!"
The training of princes is to fit
them to get on with people of all
s torts; why should not other people be
brought up in the same way?

THE WHITE PAINT OF THE
The White House at Washington,
which has been the "Kings Palace"
of the American People since it was
first occupied by President Madison
in 1809, has recently undergone a
thorough course of remodelling, reno
vation and repair. Every American
citizen is crnsr of an undivided
eighty or eighty-five millionth part of
the White House, as well as of the
other Public Buildings and Monuments
in the Capitol City. An item in the
renovation of the remodelled White
House was repainting. Every visitor
to 'Washington knows why the White
House is so called because it is lit
erally a "white house". The exterior
paint must therefore be white. Now
while the pure white surfaces and sim
ple lines of the White House, set In
the midst of green lawns and beauti
ful trees, produce a very satisfying
effect of dignified simplicity, white
paint from a practical point of view,
is about the most unsatisfactory kind
of paint that could have been selected
by the original designers. First, be
cause any white paint is easily dis
colored by smoke and dust, and sec
ond, because ordinary white paint
itself gradually turns gray or brown
ish yellow from exposure.
But white the White House is and
white it must remain or it would no
longer be the "White House". So the
renovators, making the best of a dis
couraging situation, sought for the
best kind of white paint procurable.
The average citizen if asked to guess
what kind of paint they finally decid
ed on would probably answer "white
lead and oil," but he would guess
wrongly. The paint selected as the
best obtainable was a ready mixed
paint, such as can be bought in any
well furnished village store, such as
is used by more than half of the
eighty or eighty-five million owners
of the White House on their own
homes. That one brand of mixed
paint was used instead of another is
a mere accidental detail there are
fifty or -a hundred brands on the
market that might have been selected
In other circumstances, and in fact,
a different brand was used in paint
ing the Capitol.
Every property owner, therefore,
who paints his house with a high
grade ready-mixed paint is following
the example set by the Government
Authorities at Washington, who used
ready-mixed paint, because they could
find nothing else as good.

GUARANTEE OF GOOD FAITH
Boy Applicant for Situation Who
Knew a Thing or Two About
There had been a fire in the shop
of Mr. Sands, and, neighbors being
neighbors, there were not wanting
charitable individuals to suggest that
if the shop had not been insured the
fire would not have occurred. How
ever the matter was amicably settled
between Mr. Sands and the insurance
company, and in due course the shop
was reopened. Everything in the place
was brand new, and, therefore, it was
only natural that he should want a
brand-new errand boy. Betimes a
beaming youth applied.
"Now, what I want," said the trades
man, impressively, "is a a lad upon
whom I can rely in whom I can
place implicit faith. You understand?"
"You'll find I'm all that, and more,"
said the youth.
"I want a lad I can trust."
"That'll be all right, guv'nor," said
an applicant And then he added, in
confidential tones: "You'll find me
close as an oyster. And if you should
appear to want another little flare
lp at any time, you can stand on me.
I'll never breathe a whisper!"
But, oddly enough, he was not en
gaged. MONEY MAKES THE HARE GO

bill, and made a purchase for 2s 6d.
was returning home, when it struck
her to look at some traps set in tie

a large hare, and, having nothing else
with which to dispatch it proceeded
to strangle it with the handkerchief,
in which she had tied up the precious

she was about to lift up the nare

later seen in Killybegs, but that is all
the old man and his daughter knew
of the whereabouts of the money.
