THE FALL CLEANINa
Hew to Cemblae Thoronebneu with tn
aiinlinnai of Friction.
The fall cleaning, wherever one lives,
north or south, should he based as to
thoroughness upon the previous clean
ing of the spring. Every house needs
a thorough administration of brooms,
scrubbing-brushes, and whisks at least
once a year, this of oourse talcing for
granted a regnlar weekly sweeping"
and dusting, and much polishing of
window-panes, and general keeping up
of affairs, as a good housekeeper must
if she would satisfy her conscience.
If in the spring carpets were taken
from the floors and thoroughly beaten
to free them from dust and the eggs of
moths, this need not be done again in
the autumn. Heavy carpets do not re
quire removal from the floors of tener
than once in two years. Halls and
stairs, being1 thoroughfares for the
family and guests, should often be
thoroughly cleaned, for sanitary rea
sons especially, and the removal and J
destruction of disease germs. Curtains,
rugs, portieres of every description,
woolen fabrics being especially indi
cated here, should be taken down
every month and left out of doors for
some hours. The trouble which this
means is not slight, but it is amply re
paid in the freshness and sweetness
brought into the house with the thor
oughly aired draperies.
In the fall, before lighting fires for
the season, it is well to have the fur
nace and flues inspected by a man
from a stove store or foundry.
The cellar must be regarded with
suspicion, and no nook or corner
of it left unvisited. If it be
the custom of the house to use any part
of the cellar as a store room, great vigi
lance is imperative, lest some decaying
fruit or vegetables shall prove the
cause of illness in the family. Let the
fall cleaning include the attic, the cel
lar, every closet, every tuck-away
place, and start in for winter with no
foes concealed in bins or on shelves.
A part of the work belonging to the
fall cleaning should be the examination
of mattresses which have been in use
during the summer. These require
making over from time to time, the hair
picked and pulled out, the ticking re
newed, the tufting done again so that
the old mattress is as good as new, and
really more comfortable than it was
when new, if that is possible.
Now let tho careful house-mother
look to tho various small repairs that
are always waiting to be done, nere a
hinge is loose; there a door needs easing.
Are the pictures nails firm and strong?
Is the picture molding right. Does
the third story back need new paper,
and would the parlors be improved by
touches in the way of paint or varnish?
If anything1 is hopelessry shabby few
things ever are the fall is the time to
discard it in favor of something better.
Please, if you are a dweller in the
city, refrain from beating your carpets
in the back yard. In most towns, a city
ordinance forbids tho doing of this, and
in most towns, unhappily, people go on
doing it in utter disregard to the law.
The clouds of dust float over neighbor
ing1 yards; the incessant flail-like noise
drives nervous invalids to the verge
of distraction, and impedes the improve
ment of convalescents. Tho domestic
method of carpet cleaning in this man
ner is less thorough, than that of the
man whose business it is, and it costs
nearly as much. In the exasperation
of its effects on tho minds of those who
suffer from it, who can estimate its cost?
Probably nobody nowadays insists
on upsetting the wholo houso at once
for the sake of either tho spring or tho
fall cleaning. This is seldom necessary.
A woman with tho talent for manage
ment can administer upon a whole
house, with the minimun of friction to
her whole family; that the men of the
house should bo aware of what is be
ing done is quite needless, if a single
room be taken at a time, and proper
precautions used against discomfort.
A women of genuine tact can, how
over, givo a certain picnic effect to
family living under difficulties, robbing1
it of the idea of mero disoomfort by a
little flavor of fun, and by refusing to
yield to irritability, though carpets are
up and pictures are down. Harper's
Mrs. Hicks "Why, Mrs. Dix, how
pale you look!" Mrs. Dix "Yes, I've
been having lots of trouble lately with
a boil." Mrs. Hicks "I'm so sorry!
Was it on your neck?" Mrs. Dix "Xo,
it was on my husband."

and his aims, Paul Vaughan informed
her that she was his ideal tho only
woman for whom he had ever enter
tained anT feeling1 warmer than
Tho result of this declaration was
that his pupil at once drooped from the
music stool into his arms, and that
Miss Brandon, senior, entering inop
portunely at that moment, her niece
announced her intention of marrying
no ono else but her dreamy-eyed music
master; and a conventional Bayswater
wedding, with white brocade, Brussels
lace, Buszard's cake, six bridesmaids,
two pages, anJ gifts of checks, butter-knives,
and volumes of Tennyson bound in
morocco leather, together with a
honeymoon trip to Norway, followed
in due course with bewildering rapidi
ty. Edith's aun and guardian, a pleas
ant-tempered and sensible old maid,
disapproved of the whole thing.
"Paul is a genius," she said, "and
geniuses oughtn't to marry. Look at
As the sage of Chelsea had been dead
some years that was impossible. But
looking at Mr. and Mrs. Paul Vaughan
tbey seemed happy enough.
Miss Brandon still maintained that
all this was a mistake. Edith ought
by rights to have married Harry Deni
son, agood-lookingyoungstock broker,
who for three years had been so much
in love with her as to be unendurable
when in her society.
"Edith wants a lot of affection and
attention," Miss Brandon said, "and
Paul, with his head full of figures and
major fifths, won't be able to give it.
Sho won't let him go on giving music
lessons, because she is jealous of him.
Consequently, with all necessity for
mere money-grubbing removed, ho will

A and less devoted to anything else
than ever. And in timo even a woman
tires of all givo and no take in the mat-
ter of affection."
Miss Brandon was not far Tvrong.
At tho end of a year of matrimony
Edith and Paul had a fragile, gray
eyed infant, upon whom the father
gazed wonderingly, and in whose
honor he composed a charming rhap
sod3, in the invention of which he en
tirely forgot the subject, and was both
annoyed and troubled by the "infant

prosaic childish ailment J and beautiful
Edith nearly broke her heart in dry
Paul was more easily consoled. He
wrote a requiem, upon the baby's
death, which greatly increased his
fame. The subject, moreover, sug
gested to him a cantata on the "Judg
ment of Solomon," upon which he at
once set to work with an artist's
fervor, while poor Edith, her lovely
face and figure wasted by grief, betook
herself every day to that little green
graveamong thqSurrey hills, beside
which she would sit for hours, moisten
ing the unresponsive earth with her(
At length, one day as Paul sat in his
study surrounded by musical instru-:
ments and musical books of reference,
with the manuscript of his precious
cantata, now within a few lines of
completion, beside him, his wife tapped
at the door. v
Paul did not want to be bothered by
anybody at that moment. He had just
finished a most admirable air, in
which the feelings of a mother over a
lost babe were suggested with marvel
ous delicacy and truth. Nevertheless,
he laid down his pen in a resigned
manner on his vife's entrance.
She had come to tell him that she
was going away from him, for a long
"I don't think you quite know, Paul,"
Bho said, with a painful effort to be
calm which made her voice sound cold
and hard, ' 'how difficult it is for me to
go on living here as nothing in your
life. I am only twenty-one, you know,
just a selfish young woman, I suppose.
I didn't quite know what marrying a
musician meant. I think you will do
you? work quite as well and even bet
ter without me. Martha will do the
housekeeping and spare you 11 the
trouble. It would have been different
if baby had lived and "
She stopped abruptly.
Her face looked gray andold.-
Paul was greatly distressed. Itwaa
evident to him that she. did not love
him; while as for him, he had scarcely
even looked at another woman.- Still,
he wished she had not interrupted hiin
just when he was in the vein of compo-i
He was very kind and'gentle'in'nis
manner. But ever and anon, whilst
speaking to her, his eyes went back to
iia manuscript upon the table, and at
sight of this, Edith's long penup re
sentment and jealousy broke out.
"You think of nothing in the world
but your work," she sobbed. "What
do such men as you want with wife or
child? Just a housekeeper to see that
your meals are cooked and your clothes
mended, and that you are not troubled
in any way. Love and affection aro
nothing to you, less than nothing!"
He gazed at her with a gentle, won
dering resignation, which irritated her
still more. The very next day sho
would leave him, so she said, in order;
to travel about and try to forget her.
loneliness and grief. Then she left the'
room, and Paul, after sunning his fin-j
gers several times through his long"
hair, decided with a sigh that he must
putrasido his work for the day and con
sult Miss Brandon concerning her
niece's extraordinary behavior.
Ho took the next train to London in
order to do this, but only arrived at the
Bayswater home to find that Miss
Brandon had left for Italy.
Tired, dispiriteti, and annoyed at hav- j
ing wasted a day away from his be
loved "score," Paul journeyed home,
arriving at the station nearest to his
cottage at eight o'clock in tho evening.
A short cut through the woods
would bring him to his own door in
twenty minutes, and as he strode over
the first fallen leaves of September,
with his hands clasped behind him and
his head full of unfinished melodies,
he noticed a curious, red, flickering
light in the sky ahead of him, through
the interlaced branches of the elms and
Too soon ho was to know the cause
of this. Sounds of hurrying feet, of
shouts and cries, mingled with the
crackle of burning wood and tho fall
of masonry, appraised him of the sccno
of riot and ruin awaiting him ;where, a

a few hours ago, his peaceful, rose-irn-bowered
home had stood.
A lamp, accidentally overturned by
a careless servant, had been the cause
of the fire. The local fire brigade had
arrived too late, and the cottage was
enveloped in a cloud of smoke, through
which jets of flame fchot ud into the
quiet evening air.
"My wife! Edith!-' Paul- cried, in
frenzied anxiety, as the meaning;-of
the scene burst upon him.
His housekeeper, Martha, 'wringing
her hands, cried out to him that Mrs.
