HOW TO KEEP CUT FLOWERS.

"How long will this clove pink

a week or ten days. A solid, rose
bud will last about the same time.
There's a good dual in knowing how
to keep flowers fresh."
"Do you use any piepmations
any salt in the water, or ammonia, or
the like 1"
"Nor at all. That's all nonsense.
All that is necessary to keep flowers
fresh is to keep them moist and cool.
If people, instead of dipping flowers
in water or putting them in a vase
with water, would simply wrap them
up in a wet newspaper, they would
And that they would keep far fresher
over night. A wet towel or napkin
would be too heavy and crush the
blooms too much, and, besides, it
would allow the moisture to evaporate
too easily. Cleveland, Ohio, Her

If a minister should do a great
wrong, how would the world ever
forgive him? But if the silver-tongued
orator who is now defending thieves
in Washington City did such a thing
it would shock no one," and this for
the reason that infidelity does not
offer a back-ground of white against
which ciimc projects itself. When a
poison gloats over the fall of a Chris
tian he only bears witness to the
beauty of the Christian system.

A fanner in the corn-growing dis
trict of Illinois sued a villager for
debt this winter, but when the case
came to trial the creditor's heaitivas
by no means adamantine. "I've
waited a good while for my pay,"
lie explained, "and wouldn't have
Miecl you now if you had acted like
a man who wanted to pay." "I'll
tell you what I'll do, replied the
debtor. "Make it $23 and I'll fix it
bo you can get the money at once."
"I'll do it." The debtor filled out
a blank note for the sum due in thirty
cliiyfa, and handed it to the creditor
with the reniaik : "Put your name on
the back and they'll give you the
money at the bank." The farmer
indorsed it, got Ills money, less the
discount, and his grin of pleasure
had not entiiely died out when the
note came due and the cashier ex
plained: "The signer has nothing wc
can get hold of, and of course the in
dorscr has to pay." Jixchauye.
Mrs. Hell, the wife of the tele
phone inventor, is deaf and dumb.
That is why her husband is so fond
of her. For in contiiving. an audi
plionc for her infirmity he hit upon
the idea of the telephone. She is a
very beautiful woman, and her face
has proven a small fortune to a
Cincinnati artist who came to Wash
ington and lived in obscurity until
bhe iriive him a sitting, when lie had
the good luck to make a beautiful
picture, which attracts crowds to the
Corcoran gallery and patronage to the
painter. Women can learn from this
iiow much good they can do by "be

The ethnology of the inhabitants
of the Chinese Empire received much
attention at tho hands of Mr. Colqu
houn, the most recent of the success
ful travellers in China. To tho out
side world the Cliiuese appear to be
n very pure race, free from individu
al ppculiuiitics; but on proceeding
inland the traveller found that the
uniformity disappeared. IIo had
not gone far west of Canton before
ho met with aboriginal tribes in the
back country and a mixed popula
tion on the rivers. On reaching
Yunnam he found that the people
consisted chiefly of Slums, disguised
under a variety of tribal names. It
bhould be some consolation to thoso
who apprehend a Chiueso invasion to
know that the Chinese have not yot
overrun their own territory.
