GEMS OF THE MONTHS.
I Poland the people have a singular
superstition that each month has a par-
ticular gem associated with it, which
governs and influences the destiny of
the persons born in that month.
Thus, Januaiy has a jacinth, or gar-
net, which denotes constancy in every
engagement. .FebruaryAmethyst, in-
suring peace of mind. MarchA
bloodstone, denoting courage and se-
crecy in dangerous enterprises. April
Sapphire or diamond, signifying repent-
ance and innocence. MayThe
gieen emerald, typical of love. June
A agate, meaning long life and health.
JulyRuby or cornelian, which in-
sures the forgetfulness or cure of evils
spunging from friendship or love.
AugustSardonyx, a happy marrige
lif e. SeptemberChrysolite, which
preserves from folly. OctoberAqua-
marine or opal, which denotes both
misfortune and hope. NovemberThe
Topaz, bunging the owner fidelity and
friendship. DecembeiTurquoise or
malachite, signifying the most brilliant
success and happiness.
A sweet, heart-lifting cheerfulness is
to some a Heaven-born gift, and the
happy possessors can wear a joyous
smile under trying circumstances if the
physical system is healthful and buoy-
ant, but such natures are rare and
seem like bursts sunlight a cloudy
dayjustto show us what brightness there
is if only could rise above the clouds.
But to most people whose lives lie along

times when to wear a cheerful smile

ready overtasked mind and would be
painful rather than pleasing to be-
But the ideal woman is so constant-
lepresented in print as smiling and

approximate this model of perfection.
This imaginary embodiment of smil-
ing loveliness is represented its ad-
mirers, as smiling calmly at woe,
cheerfully in adversity and lovingly on
an intemperate or inconstant husband,
while the reverse of this is true of a
woman possessing keen sensibilities, ft
high appieciation of the advantages of
prospenty, and just oonception of the
punciples and qualities that constitute
a truly noble manhooda woman who
has capacity for thinking, feeling and
loving. Yet this type of woman often
suffers by comparison with the former
The lines pressed into the fair forehead

the passive woman is regarded as evi-

when you covetously contemplate
these high-wrought pictuies of serene

This is a*trying season of the' year,
when the strength and patience and
generalship of the housekeeper is taxed
to its utmost, and when physical
strength is about to yield to nervousness,
a feather's weight laid by the hus-
band's thoughtlessness may break down
the last prop of good resolution to bear
bravely, while a single act of kindness
or word of encouragement, might push
the whole domestic machinery safely
through the trial to the golden Indian

The simplest form of ice-box or
refrigerator is a tight box to hold the
food and ice^ which is surrounded
a larger box, with non-conducting
material between the two. Select or
make two boxes, one of them four to
six inches larger each way than the
other. The smaller box should be
lined the inside with sheet zinc or
galvanized iron, and made water-tight
this box should have at one end and
about midway of its height a shelf to
hold the ice and be provided with a
faucet at the bottom long enough to
reach through to the exterior of the
outer box. Lay the bottom of the
larger box two pieces of four-inch
scantling and fill to the level of
these with saw-dust, and set the in-
ner box. The space between the two
boxes is to be filled in firmly with dry
saw-dust. The cover of the inner box
is sometimes made double, and the
space filled in with saw-dust, but a
simple cover over which a cotton quilt
is laid to exclude the air will answer
as well. The cover to the outer box
should fit closely, and care should be
taken to keep the saw-dust dry. Such
a refrigerator may not be so econom-
ical of ice as some modern ones, but
will answer a good purpose.
IN THE HILL.
Discussing this timely matter.
Eastern newspaper remarks that all
kinds of vines are benefited manur-
ing the hill, besides the amount applied
broadcast to the soil. But manuring
tb hill needs* to be done with discretion,
or it will do more harm than good.
Vines are enormous consumers of
moisture, and with free bearers are
more apt to suffer from dying out i
midsummer than from any other cause.
A forkful of coarse, strawy manure i
a dry time makes the hill over it dryer
than ever. N straw or litter of any
kind should be put under seeds of any
kind in large quantity. Partiyfermen-
ted manure mixed with the under soil,
and thoroughly compacted treading
down, will attract moisture and be a
reservoir from which the plants above
may draw. One difficulty in applying
manure in the hill is that it is thrown
too loosely, and the soil is not com-
pacted around it.
WATCH THE SMOKE.
How often hear the remark, "We
shall have rainth atmosphere is so
heavy." The reverse is true. When
one sees smoke hanging from a chimney,
with a tendency to sink to the ground,
it indicates that the atmospherels light
in fact too light to float the smoke.
When the smoke rises from the chimney
it indicates a heavy atmosphere. A
column of smoke is not a bad barome-
ter, for a barometer is nothing more
than a recorder of the pressure of the
atmosphere. When the atmosphere is
light and the smoke settles the pressure
on the mercury is light and the eolumn
falls, indicating storm. When the at-
mosphere is heavy and the smoke rises
the pressure is greater and the column
rises, indicating fan* weather.

During the hot summer months farm-
ers as a mle use salted fish for a change
in the bill of fare. I is wholsome food,
the greatest objection to it being the
time it takes to freshen it so it will
palatable and not create thirst. For
salmon, mackerel and salted halibut
soaking over night in sour milk is the
best way to freshen it Lay the skin
side down and putin enongh of the sour
milk to entirely cover the fish. When
used rinse thorougly in cold water till
the water is clear, then boil a trifle.
Too much boiling makes the fish hard.
Turn off the water and cook in cream or
butter, or broil the gridiron. I never
tried any way of flavoring that gave
fish as good a flavor as this. Salt pork
also is much better freshened over night
in sour milk.

HBHMKTTA CHBISTIAK WEIGHT, InScribner's
Magazine for Jun e. ^%4, i*"^
Anna Dawes, the accomplished
daughter of United States Senator Hen-
Dawes, of Massachusetts, under
the query, "What to church
for?" makes the following answer in
the Christian Union:
The faculty of reverence is said to
be particularly wanting i Americans.
I is the price pay for our equality
of privilege. I does not seem neces-
sary, therefore, that should foster
and cultivate any excess of familiarity
with divine things. There is much
question of the wisdom, and even of the
propriety,of the fierce colloquialism of
Sam Jones, and there is greater
tf.?ubt of the value and real efficacy of
the Salvation Army. I whatever
light these agencies are held, their un-
questioned irreverence is, at the best,
excused as a definite means to a end.
I is believed that the conservative
religious feeling of the community will
seize upon the result of their work, and,
surrounding those who have been per-
suaded to better living with an at-
mosphere which is reverent as well as
religious, teach these children of the
Father to worship as well as follow him.
But what if the church itself knows lit-
tle or nothing of the holy awe that
surrounds its God? What if the con-
servative element of the religious world
is breaking down its own barriers, and
i s, sometimes carelessly, sometimes
ignerantly, and sometimes of set
purpose, walking upon holy ground
with shod feet?
W cannot afford to loose the feeling
of consecration and especial sanctity
from our church buildings. The value
of surroundings is newly emphasized
just now in every other directionbu
while are particular as to the
aesthetics of our music rooms and art
galleries, are carefully ignoring the
kindred treatment of our churches. I
do not refer alone to the architecture
and decoration. True, it means
conduces to religious awe and a con-
sciousness of the presence of God to
enter a music hall, as one might say,
decorated in Moorish devices, wherein
the organ is the most prominent feature.
O the other hand, he who passes under
the portals of Trinity in Boston, and of
many another less conspicuous church,
must feel the spirit of devotion fall
But, however, this may be, a more
serious difficulty is the atmosphere of
the audience. Why are they here?
talk, or to pray? worship, or for
social intercourse? I would often be
hard to tell. A church was recently
recommended in hearing something
after this fashion: I like to there
so much. Some way, it never seems
like a church at alleverybod knows
everybody, and they just have a pleasant,
friendly time together." The italics
are mine. 'It never seems like a church
at all" is increasingly true of our
churches, and seem eager to increase
the number of such religious clubs.
I know a large and famous congrega-
tion which is as sociable as possible be-
fore the morning service. I is not
uncommon for the women to leave
their pews and to that of a friend
for a few minutes' conversation. The
oiganplaysa cheerful, light sort
music as the people gather-, and they
greet each other with smiles and nods.
I another a regular levee of handshak-
ing and friendly conversation goes
on i the the aisles after service, and
here this habit is apparently cultivated,
to promote acquaintance. Quite in
the same line is the habit of giving in-
vitations and arranging appointments
at that time. A stranger making his
slow way out of a crowded Washing-
ton sanctuaryone somewhat noted
for its regard for forms and ceremon-
iesheard several invitations to poker
parties before he reached the door. And
it is a perfectly common thing for that
opportunity to serve as the convenient
occasion for much small buisness in the
jvay of appointments, explanations, and
arrangements. One of the English mis-
sioners who was in New York last
winter has just spoken of this as a
prominent fault i our congregations,
greatly needing amendment.
'The Lord is i his holy temple,' but
shall hardly "keep silence before
him" when come from the morning
paper into an apartment where meet
our friends, discuss our every day
affairs, and settle i our pew, bowing
the head perhaps for a hasty prayer,
but raising it for a longer chat with
our neighbor the last engagement
or something else as incongruous.
The hymns, the prayers, the sermon,
may have moved strongly and deep-
ly, even into the springs of action, but
what becomes of the subtle spiritual in-
fluence if hurry from the benedic-
tion across the church to fix a date for
next week's excursion, or to renew a
acquaintance with a stranger tempo-
rarily in town? I is a well-known
complaint that a church is too cold,
does not treat strangers welL I wen
there a year, and one ever shook
hands with me"a curious evidence of
the entirely secular atmosphere which
iS coming to be expected of churches.
I philanthropy is their chief end, then
shaking hands and sociability should
made even more prominent. I the
cultivation and growth of religion is
their chief object, then let worship
in the temple, rather than make it a
place of even social merchandise,
shall doubtless answered that religion
and brotherliness hand in hand,
that Christ came to teach love to man
as well as love to God. This is quite
true, but taught love to the brethren
because are children a common
Father. Christianity is distinctively
the religion that reaches men through
God. There is not the least danger,
in the present temper, that shall
neglect benevolences, teach a Chris-
tianity whose only end is personal sal-
vation. Neither counsel nor warning
is needed i that directionbn there is
some danger that shall forget the
Godwardside of religion. W search
eagerly for new and better methods of
or brother, and w think that
excuses from any cultivation of our
own spiritual relations those of the
Qhwtk. Let the one, bnt not
let leave that great other undone.
The modern fashion of building- the
edifice is doubt somewhat responsi
ble for this result. W have clustered
under the church roof a many offic
as a monastery of the middle ages,, and
like those institutions, the chief is* the
refectory! A leading religious organ
has just delivered its say* with great
freedom the development of the
kitchen as a religious force, and as
serts that as the kitchen goes the
spirituality goes down. This may or
may not prove true. I is too early to
decide with certainty. But it is not
impossible that the decline of the spirit
of worship, so much deplored, has
something to with the aims of a
modern church. Hits-first aim is to
make its members work, and to teach
them to enter into the wide interests of
the world, then doubtless the sociable is
more valuable than the prayer meeting,
and the church cannot better used
than for public meetings, and lectures,
and gathering of general interest. But
if it has a higher purpose* if it stands
for our relation to the supernatural, and
all its activity is but a means of draw
ing men into a higher life as well as a
better, must recognise that purpose
and seek to promote it. There is a
acknowledged need of cultivating the
purely religious element more than
have been doing, and it gnay not be
amiss to begin a new spirit of rev
erence in the house of God, a outward
devotion which shall a once express
and cultivate the inward and spiritual
The great soap manufacturing firm
of Procter & Gamble, of Cincinnati,
have entered into a agreement with
their employes which the latter are
to share in the profits of the business
in addition to their wages. This action
was voluntary the part of the firm
and without solicitation the part of
the employes. The Evrooxa POST of
that city refers to the new departure as
The firm of Jfrocter & Gamble, their em
ployes, the city of Cincinna ti and the toilers
of the whole world are to be congratulated
upon the inauguration, the firm above
mentioned of a practicab le and mutually
beneficial scheme of profit-sharing, which
includes all the small army of employes of
th is great soap-making firm.
Procter & Gamble are to be congratulated
because they have bound their employes to
their interest: because they have sweetened
their own residue of profit by the conscious
ness that they receive it into unenvied pos
sessionbecaus they have the conscious
ness that they are not only helping to clean
up the world of mankind, bnt also contrib
uting to the cheerful and hopeful solution of
the great problem of profit distribution
and because every lover of his rac e, as he
uses a cake of Ivory soap, will give an ap
proving thought to the firm which has
joined hands with its employes in the profit
of its production.
The employes are to be congratulated, be
cause, with no responsibility- for the losses
of the enterprise and no capital at stake,
they wi ll first surely get. then- wages, and
will thereafter get a suitable share in the
profits of the undertaking.
The city of Cincinna ti is to be congratu
lated, because it is to have an opportunity
to witness the practical operation and re
sults of profit-sharing on a very large scale
because the example, right at home, is like
to be followed by many, if not most,
oth er industrial establishments of the city,
and because it augurs the introducti on of
a happier feeling on the part of the manual
laborers of the city, whose protection and
comfort should be the city's first care.
The toilers of the whole world are to be
congratulated because th is example shows
that the old heathen doctrine of uet alone"
is being demolishe d, and that an era of
mutuality and fair dealing is at hand.
I is long since the pape rs of Cincinna ti
hare been able to chronicle so pleasant an
item of loc al news. I is better to share
profits as we go along than to hoard them
till we die and then bequeath them to the
public, and infinitely better than to trans
mit them unearned to our family descen
How Type Is Made,
I takes a great deal of work to
make type, says the Atlanta Constitu-
tion. Every letter has to be handled
by five different persons after it is cast.
The first thing done is cutting the let-
ter the end of a fine piece of steel
forming a punch. The punch is driven
into a piece of polished copper, which
makes the matrix. The matrix for the
face of the letter and the mould for
the body of the type are put into the
type-casting machine, fed with melted
metal, and the letters are turned out
one at a time, dropping from the ma-
chine like the ticking of a watch. A
great deal of work is required in finish-
ing type, and when at last they are ap-
parently all right each letter is exam-
ined under a microscope, and the de-
fective ones are rejected,

IiOve Among the Boses^
Boston Traveller: Said a florist the
other day: "Last spring I used to
notice a couple going by herea fine,
inanly young fellow and a girl pretty
and dainty, with lovely brown hair and
dark-blue eyes. They didn't know
each other, but when the young man
went to business the girl was sure to
somewhere around where she could see
him. She lived right around the corner,
and she used to come i here and. pre-
tend to examining the flowers as
passed. Then she would look and
watch him a went down the street.
One day as went she looked
and said tome: 0, what a funny hat,'
and then, carelessly, a she began pick-
ing among the flowers: I wonder
who is.' I came very near laughing,
for the previous day the young fellow
had been i to ask who she was and
had sent her some flowers. About a
a week afterward she came i with a
friend, and I heard her telling the
friend how somebody had been sending
her flowers every morning, and she did
wish she could find out who it! was.
"Well, the best part it all came
afterward. One morning came i a
usual, and the gardener took him back
into the conservatory. While, was
there the girl entered and stood near
the counter looking toward the window.
Presently returned,,and, a start-
for the door briskly, said: Wefl,
send these flowers as usual No.
1 Neither knew the other
was near, and hearing the number of
her house mentioned she turned around
and they met face toface. Well, I never
saw such a embarassed couple i all
days. She had a big Jacqueminot
near her face, and it would have been
hard tell which was redder, the rose
or her cheeks. She turned to the flow
ers and passed out. They didn't
come any morey but not long ago I saw
them going by together. They both
looked in, and whett they saw
laughed and she blushed."

Aljtor Grossmith tells a Chicago News
reporter of a new comedian who, years
ago, was cast for the first grave-digger
when the Hamlet was Barry Sullivan.
The vision, olthe black-browed, scowl-
ing prince and the sound of his tem-
pestuous voice when asked whose
skull it was scared all the comedian's
wits away, and was obliged to con-
fess aloud with many stammers, that he
had forgotten. The audience roared
and Sullivan was obliged to say "Ah,
Yorick*s, I suppose,"bnt added'Beast V'
in a vehement "aside," that boded
good for the unfortunate actor when
the scene ended. The comedian was
so frightened that thought best to
make his escape by means of the gram
via the substage route. Sullivan saw
this and sought to prevent him, but the
man imagined that the irate tragedian
was trying to secure him for personal
chastisement and made all haste to
escape the threatened vengeance, Im-
mediately npon this entered the funeral
of Ophelia, and Hamlet's love was
buried top of the first grave digger.

The Toothsome Caramel.
Although so many of our pleas-

caramel is an American invention of
not quite a dozen years' standing. I
was not known in Europe till about
six years agoan it is now made
there only one firm of confectioners
a London house. A pint of cream to
three pounds of sugar will make a
goodly quantity, boiled together, and
flavoring, of whatever desired
nature, added when it reaches 260
Fahrenheit. Pour out the mixture
then flat dishes to cool, and as soon
as it begins "set," which is very
soon, cut it into little blocks with a
sharp blade dipped in cold water.
These will be good for some time, and
are about as innocent a confection as
there is to be found.
