This Is a Practical Occupation Open to a Woman Thrown on Ear Orm Resources. 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 grown. 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. St Louis Globe-Democrat. LEARNING TO BE HANGMAN The New Incumbent Has Grewsome Rehearsals of His Unen viable Profession. 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 bags. 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 Drop Cakes. 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. 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 ways lets dust and dirt through like a sieve, and when it has to be taken up the pieces of dust covered paper can be carefully lifted and burned.

"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 version -of it" 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? Time is not tied to a post like a horse to a manger..

Don't sacrifice your honor. If you can't make people love you, at least have them respect you. Don't forget that a well written business letter is brief. It is also so explicit that little time is consumed in reading it Don't wait for fortune to smile on you. Fortune doesn't smile all the time. When she does she usually fa vors those who hustle and not those who wait Don't talk all the time. Give the other man a chance. If he opens his mouth to make an objection let him make it It's better out than sticking in his mind. Don't forget that mirth is God's medicine. The man who hasn't a hearty laugh hasn't much sympathy with humanity and his chances for success are small. Don't let opportunity knock at your door and fina you asleep. If she does she will pass on and you may not have some watchful friend to catch her by the ear and bring her back. Don't forget to get acquainted with yourself. To know one's self is no small part of success. You may not be all that you thought you were but don't let that worry you. You maj have a chance to make yourself like the other man before you have a large circle of business friends. REPAIRING BRAIN A Certain Way by Pood. Every minister, lawyer. Journalist, physician, author or business man is forced under pressure of modern con ditions to the active and sometime: overactive use of the brain. Analysis of the excreta thrown out by the pores shows that brain work breaks down the phosphate of potash, separating it from its heavier compan ion, albumen, and plain common sense teaches that this elemental principle must be introduced into the body anew each day, if we would replace the loss and rebuild the brain tissue. We know teat the phosphate of potash, as presented in certain field grains, has an affinity for albunen add that is the only way gray matter ia the brain can be built It will not aaswer to take the crude phosphate of patasa of the drug shop, for nature rejects it The elemental mineral must be pre sented through food directly from na ture's laboratory.

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. STORY OF A PHOTOGRAPH. Uncanny Figure Appeared in Three Successive Sittings of Young Woman. The following story of a young larty living in the country who came 10 Iiondon to be photographed is told by "M. A. P.," and vouched for oy a well kaown London photographer. Aftei seme days the lady, Miss B , was inlormed the photograph was not a success, and another sitting was sug gested. This she agreed to, but again was informed that the photograph wav a, iailure. There was a third sitting. In two days' time she received an urg ent letter from the photographer ask ing her to come up to his studio and bring a friend with her. Miss B. went, accompanied by her mother, ar.d was shown the amazing results of the three sittings. The pictures ol the girl herself were quite good, br.t in each plate there was to be seen rtanding behind her the figure of a man holding a dagger in his uplifted hand. The features, though faint, were clearly discernible, anti .Viss 13. recognized them as those ot her fiance. an officer in the Indian army. The effect of this experience was f ijre.u that after a few days she wrote out to India, breaking off the engagement GUARANTEE OF GOOD FAITH Boy Applicant for Situation Who Knew a Thing or Two About Fires. 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 Tied in a Girl's Handkerchief Quit a Sum Went to the Dogs. An odd story of the disappearance of a hare with a sum of money comes from Donegal, Ireland. An old men living in the mountains, near Glen lies, sent his daughter into the town to. change a five-pound bill which he had received from his son in Amer ica. The girl, having changed the bill, and made a purchase for 2s 6d. was returning home, when it struck her to look at some traps set in tie mountain. She was delighted to find 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 4 17s. 6d. Strangulation being com pleted to the satisfaction of the girl, she was about to lift up the nare when the animal sped away with tha handkerchief and the money. A hare with a white article round its neck was later seen in Killybegs, but that is all the old man and his daughter knew of the whereabouts of the money. CAKES AND HOT BREADS.
