An car of corn which Patrick Cullen

Square, Montgomery County. To the
ordinary city man there is really noth
ing remarkable about the ear of com.
Its kernels are not solid gold, nor are
there any diamonds concealed about
the cob. Its value lies in the fact that
somewhere at some time or other some
agricultural society offered a reward
of $1000 to any one who could .Unit a
perfect ear of corn with the kernels

It has always been found that the
rows .:re even, say ten, twelve, or
fourteen to a cob. This ear which
Fatrick Culleu found, however, shows
thirteen rows around the butt and
eleven around the middle of the cob.
Many farmers to whom Culleu showed
his prize assured him that the ear was
as perfect as it could be, and that it
was really a 'curiosity. Cullen is now
looking for the agricultural society
which offered the 1000 reward.

Some of the conturieres have as
snted me that, in three months the
women of fashion will be wearing
good-sized bustles, writes the Paris

women who used to wear extravagant

The Nfwpit Collar IlnmU. ?
The uew black collar bands which
are selling so well in the shops can
easily be duplicated at home. Pur
chase one yard nnd a half of velvet
ribbon. It should be exactly an inch
and one-half wide, but it may be of
satin or gros grain ribbon if they are
more becoming than the dull-finished
velvet. From this yon measure and
cnt off one-quarter of a yard. Fold
the ends nnder to make a two-looped
bow as soon as you have passeil it
through the side of a fancy buckle.
Your long piece of ribbon, now meas
uring a yard and a quarter, mnst have
the cuds properly slanted instead of
being mitred. Find the exact middle,
and here stitch down the bow with a
buckle. The collar band is now ready
to be worn with any or every cos
tume. Tie the ends in the back, and
you will have tho proud satisfaction of
being up to date.
A Girl Station Keeper.

business women, but I think no one

than the lovable girl who is station
agent at Rowland, in the Bluegrass,"
said a Stanford friend. "I refer to
Miss Susio Lasley, who is perhaps the
youngest station agent and ticket
seller in the country. Two years ago,
when her brother, who had been the
agent at Rowland, died, Miss Susie
was given the appointment, and though
less than twenty, she has earned a de
served reputation for capacity and
faithfulness. Her home is a mile
from her post, but she is always at the
little ticket window to sell tickets for
every train nnd is on the platform,
lantern in hand, to sign for all the
baggage and express, it matters not
how cold and disagreeable the night
in winter. She rides a wheel, but is
fin de siecle in no other respect, there
being too much of the matter of fact
about her for any foolishness. She is
a brunette, with nnt-brown hair, hazel
eyes, and is as attractive as she is cour
ageous and iudepeudent. Everybody
at Rowland knows aud loves the sweet
tempered station agent, who will earn
a better place in the company's employ
before maliy months have elapsed. "
I.lttlo HUcnit Woman.
There is a charming dame in Atlanta,
On., says the Chicago Times-Herald,
kuown as the "little biscuit woman."
She was born in Amerins, Ga. Her
father, Professor Butler, was at
different times President aud Pro
fessor of Mathematics in the
Louisville High School. His wife
was Elizabeth Holt, a member of a
prominent Georgia family. Martha
Butler-Lapsley is a delightful woman
with gracious manners. She is very
dark and she has luminous teep brown
eyes. She was educated in Hollidays
burg, Penu. She inherited her father's
mathematical talent, and her examina
tion papers in that study won for her
the highest honors during the years
she was a teacher in that collage.
After her marriage, while residing in
a small Georgia village, a church so
ciety, of which she was an active mem
ber, served luncheons one day at a
horse fair. Mrs. Lapsley's contribu
tion of beaten biscuits established her
reputation as an expert cook. At vari
ous times large trays of these delicious
biscuits were sent to be sold for the
benefit of the Church Aid Society, and
it was not until the village was visited
by a cyclone, which swept everything
before it, including Mrs. Lapsley's
possessions, that she began to support
her family. Later she went to Atlanta
and put her biscuits on trial at the
Woman's Exchange. The demand for
her daiuties increased rapidly. At
first she sold four dozen a day. Now
she considers 400 biscuits a small
daily sale, and on Saturday she sells
1000. Women ar always bound to
succeed in the domestic branches of
employment, and Mrs. Lapsley's suc
cess is only one more proof of the fact.

Art of Omelet Making;.
The test of a good cook is the mak
ing of au omelet. The omelet the
perfect omelet oomes from France.
It is as much a national dish as pot-
au-feu, aud almost as simple to make,
although it is geuera'ly assumed that
only an expert can cook an omelet to
To begin with, it is advisable to
have a frying-pan reserved solely for
the making of omelets. Then, to be
gin, take two small basins, or two
soup plates if more convenient, and
break the yolks of the eggs into one
vessel and the whites into auother;
add to the yolks three small pinches
of salt and two of pepper, and beat
them well with a fork. The whites
must be-whipped into a froth and
added to the yolks. Then place a
good-sized piece of butter into the pan,
and when it smokes pour in the eggs.
For the first second or two it is not
necessary to touch the eggs, as you
would mix the butter with the omelet,
which must be avoided; but after this
delay shake the pan and pass a fork
round the sides between the omelet
aud the pan, and keep the eggs almost
continually in movement. After the
eggs have cooked for about two min
utes on a moderate fire, place the pan
in the oven, and in one minute the
omelet will be ready. Then double
one-half upon the other and let it glide
into a hot dish. '
For omelette aux fines herbes it is
merely necessary to add a little
chopped parsley and chives to the
yolks very little is needed. As a rule,
the ordinary cook makes an omelette
aux fines herbes look like a tennis
lawn. New York Journal.
Ginger Snaps One cup of 'molasses

In the namo of some ono else, as has been
testified to, then the fact that he volun
tarily Intoxicated himself Is no defense.
He has not denied the fact of tho illegal

that he has no recollection of the occur

that If the iutoxlcntlon were forced upon
him, If the liquor was poured down his
throat, It might act as a defense, but vol
untary intoxication is no excuse."
There was little reason to doubt thnt the

illegally with a full knowledge of what bo
was doing, aud It is more than possible that
he had drunk Ibiuor exnresslv to clve him

A Few Temperance "Don'U."
Don't take the first glass and you can't
take the second.
Don't act as If Ood gave you a mind that
you might becloud it with drink.
Don't think you are more of a man if you
drink. It really doesn't add to your
stuture, mental or physical, the least frac

Don't take for your model tho loud
mouthed, very ofteu foul-mouthed, fellow
of "sporty" proclivities, who boasts of hie
uppetite for drink.
Don't be afraid of the laughter of the
"boys," because of your temperance prin

Owl Flew Throngli a Cah.
Mike Murphy, engineer of the
"Rlne Flyer" on the Baltimore and
Ohio, was badly cnt in the faoe by
flying glass from his cab window early
yesterday morning. Mr. Mnrphy wai
coming down the big hill at Casey
ville at a high rate of speed, and the
air being quite fresh, he kept his cab
window closed. All at once he heard
a crash and the next instant blood
oovered his face, the result of pa ti
des of glass from his cab window
striking him. He hastily reversed
hia'engine, and, as soon as he washed
the blood from his face, looked around
for the cause of the accident. He ex
pected to find that some miscreant
had thrown a missile through the win
dow, but in a corner of the cab lay a
big owl, which had passed through
the window. The owl was slightly
disfigured, but would have been able
to fly had Mr. Mnrphy permitted it to
escape. He brought it to East St.
Louis, and will keep it as a memento
of the fast mn at Caseyville. Rail-rorj's-rteii

could not see to escape, and that it

To Dress Wounds.
Three useful things to have iu the
house as a provision in case of wounds,
are a spool of adhesive plaster, some
iodoform gauze and a package of car
bolated absorbent cotton. Cleanse and
dry as nearly as may be the cut sur
face with a wad of the cotton, using
moderate pressure and elevating the
part if necessary to check the flow of
blood. Do not apply any water. Bring
the cnt surfaces together as accurately
as possible and retain them there with
as few and as narrow strips of the
plaster as will suffice, cutting them of
a good length. Then cover the wound
with a dozen or so thicknesses of the
iodoform gauze, which should extend
au inch beyond the wound. Over the
gauze apply a liberal layer of the ab
sorbent cotton, allowing it to extend
beyond the gauze. The cotton may
be kept in place by a bandage of
cheesecloth, or a part of a leg of a
stocking may be drawn over it. Mod
erate pressure, if evenly distributed,
is helpful. The pressure of a string is
