West African Betrothals.
In some parts of West Africa the
girls have long engagements. On the
day of their birth they are betrothed to
a baby boy a trifle older than theib
selves, and at the age of 20 they are
married. The girls know of no other
way of getting a husband, and so they
are quite happy and satisfied. As wives
they are patterns of obedience, and the
marriages usually turn out successes.
A Frog's Resoue.
A correspondent writes: "My son,
age 10% years, was working in the
garden when a viper about two feet
long glided past him. A good shot
with a stcno about the size of a
cricket ball broke the reptile's spine,
while a sharp edge of the granite cut
open the belly, thereby restoring to
freedom a frog, which hopped out of
its prison unhurt."-Madras Mail.
Find More Edible Mushrooms.
A novel institution of Tarare,
France, is a mycological laboratory,
where expert judgment is pronounced
upon mushrooms. The fungi are
abundant in the locality and the ex
aminers have found that excellent
edible qualities are possessed by an
astonishing number of varieties -that
had been avoidedi as dangerous.
In Democratic America.
If the first child is a boy his mother
at once begins to think of the time
when lie will read his inaugural ad
dress from the east portico of the
capitol. If the little one chances to
be a girl her mother fondly thinks
of the happy day when she may be
come the mother-in-law of a title.
Chinese Fond of Birds.
Crows are regarded with much favor
in China. They are taught cunning
tricks and show a great deil of in
teligence. Pigeons have bamboo
whistles fastened to their feathers, so
they make mysterious noises as they
fly. Cats are taught to live in bird
houses to protect the birds from rats.
Conducive to a Beautiful Union.
With a young pair in any degree
harmoniously fashioned by nature,
nothing can conduce to a more beau
tiful union than eagerness of the maid
en to learn and of the youth to teach.
Out of it there arises a relationship
as fundamental as it is agreeable.
When Beating Carpets-..
Remember first of all to beat very
thoroughly on the wrong side, and
then very lightly on the right. Too
vigorous beating on the right side is
liable to ruin the texture of a carpet,
but thorough brushing with a hard
carpet brush can do no harm.

to be well tempered. To do this it
should be- allowed to heat gradually,
and stay hot for several hours in suc
cession without use, then it should
gradually cool and be set aside. After
this it should be aUowed to heat only
when wanted for use.
The habit which some housewives
have of "putting on the flats," at all
times, lest perchance they should
need them, will eventually spoil the
temper of the best-tempered fiatdran
in . existence.-Harper's Bazar.
To Press a Coat.
All pressing should be done on the
wrong side, except the last or finieh
ed pressing. Turn the collar up, damp
en and stretch. Hold up one end- and
press it the form of a loop, so as to
keep the round effect. Dampen the
revers on the padded side along the
told and press until dry. In pressing
the sleeves, the shoulders should be
placed over a pad. Then the entire
coat should be pressed on the right
side, using a wet cloth and a.hot iron
to give a finish.

To Clean Delicate Fabrics.
Solled places or spots can be re

the ammonia. Lay the goods on a
cloth; cover the soiled place with the
paste; rub with a soft cloth and let
stand till dry. Then brush or shake
off the powder. -
