The old fashioned southern houses! Some
of them are left still. You see them here
and there as you go about Houston; splen
did old places, with such an airof old time
hospitality about them. In the midst of
the modern buildings these lovely old
homes give you a tooling of pleasure just
such a feeling as you have when ) OH meet a
gentleman of the old school, with his re
fined and court ly bearing. What a vision
conies to you of the lovely hospitality which
once made every one of these homes the
center of pleasure and culture! You have
but to close youreyos, and youcan see again
the merry crowds that used to assemble
there, and up from the past come tl oat ing
the light jest and lighter laughter. What
music and song have drifted out from those
spacious parlors! What couples have
promenaded along those wide old galleries!
Where have they all gone, I wonder the
youth and hope that made these old homes

Finding the Tagr.
I lately made the discovery that by tear
ing a hit olT one corner of my notebook I
could put my thumb nail on the corner of
the tirst page on which I wanted to write
and open to it at once without lingering to
separate that page aud the cover. It fol
lowed as a corollary that when the first
page was written full tlie exposed corner of
that page could he torn oif in the same
manner and the second page opened to
with equal readiness and soon. I think
this idea maybe found useful where one
turns several times to one page before writ
ing on the next, as on notebooks, acoount
"books, etc A gentleman to whom I ex
plained the idea suggested that hooks
might be made with perforation! across
one corner, so that tlie tear might be easier
and neater. Cor. Writer.
Halting starch at Home.
When starch is wanted at a pinch, it can
be made from all .arinaceous substances.
It can he washed out of grated new pota
toes, wheat bran, oornmeal, oatmeal or
flour. Starch of commerce is, however, so
generally accessible that it is scarcely
worth while to do more than indicate the
things that may upon a pinch serve as sub
stitutes for it. To use any of them except
ing wheat 11 our, tie a double handful loose
ly in a thin hag, then wash and knead vig
orously in plenty of cold water. When it
looks milky white, takeout the hag, let the
llqUOT settle live ininuti s or until clear wa
ter stands on top, then pour it off so as to
be riil of float ing particles and use the thick
remainder as starch. If w heat flour is used,
either make of it a very si ilf dough, from
which wash out the starch in cold water,
or else wet it first with a little water, aild
ing more radi tally until is A thin, smooth
batter ready to he made into boiled starch.
What remains w hen the starch has been
dissolved out of the flour i-the gluten, a
very valuable substance in bread, but of no
use in doing up clot bes, Philadelphia Led

In Lady Burton's life of her husband she
tells of a friend of his, known popularly as
Bob Campbell, who, having taken it into
his head that it was very silly to have to go
to the expense of a coliin and not to utilize
it during his life, had himself measured for
one, a nice oak and brass affair, t he plate
having name and everything usual on it
except the date, for which a blank was left.
He had it fitted up with shelves across the
inside, so as to Use it for keeping cold meat
or bottles or any other thing. On Its ar

and all, t la-re was something of a scene, but

Another man has been arrested for fool
ing folks by telling them he can establish
their claim as heirs to vast. Knclish es
tates It is true that a good deal of land
and a good deal of money in Kngland have
reverted lo the crown because the families
which once hail them have died out. It is
also true that the government would be
glad to deliver this property over to the
living heirs if they could be found,

Pir Kdwiu Jones died without, issue and ,
also without relatives that every man in
America who is frescoed with the name of !

Ad has a right to enjoy his estates.
If the American .Tones, however, hap
pens to be a first class idiot, a plausible
rogue can persuade hitn that lie has the
blue blood of the aboriginal Jones in his
veins, and that instead of Opining OTStSfS
or dredging for clams he ought to be
mounted on the driver's seat of a hand

Everybody likes to be told that he is su
perior to his position, and that his true
place is in t he very highest English society,
such as Sir Kdward occupied before he
drank himself to death with line old Scotch
whisky. S. Jones, the elanuligger, or the
other Jones who has made a few thou
sands and would like to tie himself to Sir
Timothy This or Sir Uallihad That listens

little game, because he has tried it on 80
foolish people, suggests that he will climb

he can arrange to have hitn occupy that ivy
covered castle wit bin a very reasonable
time. In tlie meanwhile of course the
lucky log who is to inherit several millions
sterling will scarcely begrudge him a pal
try huudred dollars or so with which to
cover necessary expenses. The hundred
dollars are forthcoming, and thereupon the
agent is immediately forthgoing. Jones
continues to dig clams, but is minus a
year's hard earnings, and the other Jones
with the "few thousands" carries on the
grocery business at the old stand as usual.
It seems preposterous, but that dodge
when carefully worked has gulled hun
dreds of Americans. The victims have no
more chance of recovering from the crown
than they have of gathering a uosegay from
the moon. There is nothing whatever in
the scheme. It is pure folly from begin

otherwise is a rank impostor.

Mark Twain and His Keeent WoiUh.
Mark Twain's most notable character
isticiscourage. Few other men even if the
other men could think of such things
would dare to say the things that Mark
Twain says. To describe the travels of a man
on a glacier, with particular reference tothe
fact that, being pressed for time, he rode
upon the middle of the glacier, which
moves faster thau the edges, is one of the
bravest things in literature. It required
courage to write "She," hut She could not
possibly exist and glacier do move. Mark
Twain is a high jumper, but he always
jumps from the solid rock of fact aud is
not afraid of breaking his neck by falling
hack upon it. His funniest things are so
funny because they arc possible. An im
possibility is a millstone about, tlie neck of
To load a frog with shot so that it can
not engage in a leaping match is funny,
but if one were to write of a whale inflated
with balloon gas so that it might shoot out
of the water ami skini through the air like
a flying lish it would not be funny. It
Would be merely fantast ic. In his hu
morous creations Mark Twain seldom plays
upon words. He plays upon ideas, and, as
a pun would have no valuerwere the words
played upon treated without reference to
their legitimate use, so he never forgets
what a character is in tlie habit of doing
when he makes him do something out of
the common, and in his comical situations
he uses the antithesis as if he were making
a pun or an epigram. Frank It. Stockton
Tlie Orchid Iii the Tropics.
To the naturalist in the tropics a collec
tion of orchids is a never ending source of
interest. He cannot help feeling that they
are not only living things, but that they
have faculties not generally credited to
members of the vegetable kingdom. He
sees them rejoicing in congenial positions
and shrinking before a strong wind or the
burning rays of a tropical sun. When the
block to which they adhere becomes de
cayed, t hey show their distaste in an un
mistakable manner by throwing out new
aerial roots, which feel their way to some
If a drought comes and no water is given,
the leaves fall, and they lie dormant for
months, to awake and put forth their won
derful flowers when the rains fall. When
they can no longer exist tinder most trying
circumstances, they die very slowly, often
lingering on for years without the sign of a
flower. Kveu when the bud is iu an ad
vanced stage a change of place will often
cause it to w ither before opening. Long

Mliow of llnVreut Colors.
The pure white color of snow, as w were
ull taught at school, is due to the fact thai
all the elementary colors of light are blend

exactly why it is not is a puzzle t o the mete

Lincoln wasn't handsome, and yet there
was nothing unpleasant, nothing you
wouldn't quickly like in Lincoln's looks.
He was swarthy as an Indian, wit h a shook
of wiry, jet black hair which fell in all di
rections and defied combs and brushes to
the death. His eyebrows carried out tlie
shaggy effect, while his bright, keen eyes
were gray. Lincoln's personal courage had
no limit. He was afraid of nothing on
earth. He received, I know, as many as
half a dozen letters every week threatening
assassination. lie never heeded them and
seldom referred to them. He went about
as freely as Grover Cleveland does now. He
would get, into the saddle aud canter out
to the Soldier's home, six miles, and an
assassin could have picked him off with a
rifle at every step of the way. Lincoln
never appeared to have the slightest fear
of it. Stanton used to get scared and put
guards around Lincoln, but the latter only
laughed at it. Senator Yoorhees in Kansas
