SUBSTITUTES FOR BREAD.
In various parts of tho world, the
poorer classos consumo llttlo or no
bread. Halted loaves of bread are
practically unknown In portions o)
southern AitBtrln and Italy, and
throughout tho agricultural district
of Roumanlu, says tho London Stand
nrd. Austrluns uvor that In tho vll
lage of OborBtoIrmurk, not very fa:
from Vienna, bread Is novcr seen
Tho staplo food Is utere, a kind of por
rldgo mado from ground beech nuts,
taken at breakfast with fresh or cur
dled milk, at dlnnor with broth 01
fried lard, and nt supper with milk
The dish Is also called holdon, and Is
substituted for bread, nob only In the
Austrian district mentioned, but Id
Carlnthla and other parts of tho Ty
rol. Northorn Italy offers a BUbstl
tuto for bread In tho form of Polenta,
which Is a kind of porridge made ol
boiled grain. Polenta Is not, however,
allowed to granulato llko Scotch por
ridge or tho Austrian sturz. It Is in
Btoad boiled into a solid pudding,
which Is cut up and portioned out
with a string. It Is oaten cold us
often as it is hot, and Is In evory
sonso an Italian's dally bread. There
Is a variation of polenta called mama
Ilea, tho favorlto food of tho poorest
classes in Roumnnla. Mnmallga ro
Bombles polenta Inasmuch . ns It is
mado of boiled train, but It is unllko
tho former in ono respect tho grains
are not permitted to sottlo Into a solid
mass, but aro kept dlstlnot after tho
fashion of oatmeal porridge.

In his mouth tho trousers and cap of
his 12-yodr-old master. Tho dumb bruto
thus attempted to notify tho parents
that tho boy had been drowned. So
tho father of tho family followed tho
flog back, to tho Alloghony river,
whoro he found tho rest of his son's
clothing and tho rest of that dog's
broken chain! Tho dog had not freed
blmsolf from that chain In tlmo to res
cuo tho boy, says tho Cleveland Plain
Senior. But tho strong link, snapped
In twain, showed that tho bruto had
tried, Bupcrhumanly, to do so. That
dog had not been in tlmo to drag his I
UtUo master out of tho water but the I
half of that llttlo master's clothing lit J
tho dog's teeth Bhowcd how sincere
tho strugglo had been. Somo peoplo

WHEN BUYING WRITING PAPER
Certain Times of the Year When
Suitable Colors and Tones May Be
Acquired In Quantities.
Tho woman w ho would get tho most
for hor money buys her writing paper
In quantity at an annual sale.
Tho reason for theso sales Is that
tho manfacturers accumulato small
lots of discontinued papors. They aro
not cheap qualities or seconds, merely
styles that aro not novel.
It Is posslblo to get four quires of
paper and 100 envelopes for n dollar,
and thcro is a cholco of different
weight, toxturb and color of tho paper,"
various shades of bluo, gray, lavender,
cream and white, also stripes and bars
In self toner. Theso como In two
sizes, usually letter and noto.
Marking varies according to color.
Two-colored letters nro moBt expen-
lvo; plain gold, silver or n slnglo
netalliu color costs about 25 cents a
quiro; n slnglo plain color, gray, bluo,
violet or brown, ten cents a quiraJfloarso not, haB b!x long and slender
and embossing In relief without color,
nbout flvo cents a quire. Theso aro
tandard prices almost everywhere
ho year round, tho roductlon being
on tho prlco of- paper.
In buying paper by the quantity It
is not wlso to cliooso novelties. An
Inconspicuous color and good quality
is always good. Many women adopt
a certain tono and kind of paper and
nnko It Individual. Thus, tho girl who
loves violet will havo palo vlolot paper
with a deeper tono or silver for tho
Btamplng, whllo tho transparent en
