Tin dishes or flat sheets of tin
are most convenient for this use,
but are apt to imparta disagreea

odorless wood answer a good pur
pose, but it is not easy to so place
them that the oven will hold many
at a time. There is no danger of
their burning, for the oven
hot enough to burn the wood is
quite too hot for the fruit, which

The best way is to have a set of
agate-ware or porcelain-lined drip
ping-pans kept for this purpose
only. In each spread a single layer
of the fruit. Place the pans in the
oven in a pile, one above the other
-not in such a way as to make
closed dishes of them, but "criss
cross," so that the hot air may
have free access to the fruit-till
the oven will hold no more. In this
way a good deal of fruit may be
done at one time. The heat of the
oven may be first tested by putting
in a small portion of the fruit to
be dried, as not only do different
fruits require different tempera
ture, but even various sorts of the
same fruit; a good deal depending
Lipon whether the season has been
wet or dry, that which is gathered
in a dry season demanding not
only a lower degree of heat, but a
shorter time than that gathered in
a wet season.
All varieties of even the same
fruit are not equally good for dry
ing. As a rule, the more acid the
fruit the better will it preserve its
qualities. The old-fashioned sour
red cherry-known in some parts
of the country as the "English"
is far better for drying or preserv
ing than any of the sorts which
are much more delicious when
eaten fiesh. The same is true of
the damson-plum, though almost
all plums dry well.
Comparatively few sorts of pears
are good for drying. The sweetest
and juiciest sorts, like the Bartlett,
and juciest sorts, like the Bartlett,
Virgalieu, and Seckel, being almost
worthless. But there is a nameless
sort, a hard, green, sour thing, not
worth gathering for any other pur
pose save pickling, which is per
fectly delicious when dried and
stewed. Almost all old-fashioned
orchards contain one or two trees
of this kind, piobably allowed to
remain because they are very pro
lific, and country house-wives
know their virtues. This pear is the
only one we know of which is bene
fited by the use of sugar is drying.
If about a tablespoonful of granu
lated sugar is sprinkled over each
quart of the fruit, and allowed to
stand upou it for an hour or two
before being put in the oven, a rich
syrup is drawn out in which the
p?ars may be dried. When done
they should be immediately pack
ed tightly ic Btone jars and sealed,
otberwi*9 they attract both ants
Fruits which are dried without
?ligar are k*pt in sealed paper bag?,
and huug in a dry cool store-room
until needed for use,
Unlike tba sour pears, quinces,
though equally tart, would be in
jured by sugar. Every one who
has preserved quinces knows that
they roust be cooked until quite
tender before the sugar is added,
for from that moment no amount
of cooking will have any other
effect than to harden the fruit.
Quinces for drying should be cut;
into comparatively thin Blices thf
round way of the fruit, pared, and
cored. When cooking the dried
fruit, remember to add no sugar
until the quinces aro as tender as j
desired, and then add as little as
may be palatable. The less sugar
used the better both for the flavor,
oi the fruit and tho health of the
person eating it.
Dried fruits should be carefully
md quickly washed before cook
ing; quickly, becauso none of the
flavor should escape to be thrown
iway in the washing water. Then
;he fruit should be put into cold
vater, and allowed to soak until
t begins to plump out into some
hing resembling its original pro-j
)ortions. Then put into a preBerv
ng-kettle, set upon the fire, and
)rir.g to a quick scald, after which
t may be set back from the fire to |
vhere it will just simmer until
lone. Perhaps one of the chief
easous why dried fruits are so
faithful is that they cannot be
ised without a good deal of cook
ng. This destroys the tendency
o fermentation, which is the bane
if fresh fruits, especially those
rhich have had to come far to
aarket. If sugar is to be added,
t may be done a few minutes be
ore removing from the fire, or wait |
mtil it is brought to the table,
rhere each person may suit him
elf as to quantity.
It should be mentioned that all
ruits-for all have acid qualities
-should be cooked only in ves
els which can impart no flavor,
.gate-iron or iron with a porcelain
ning is good when new, but ehould
ot be used after the 1 ining is at all
roken. An earthen-ware preserv
Dg-kettle is best.

"Did you was afraid, mamma?"
"No, my little boy, because God

"Yes, my boy, an' He said

C. W. Carey, in the Strand Magazine.
It is during the breeding season
that the male ostrich becomes so
savage, and his note of defiance
"brooming," as the Dutch call it
is heard night and day. The bird
inflates his neck in a cobra-like
fashion and gives utterance to
three deep roars. The first two are

Lion hunters all agree in asserting
that the roar of the king beasts
and of the most foolish of birds
resemble one another almost ex
actly. When the birds are prop
erly savage they become a great
source of amusement or, as some
think, of danger. Certainly, to be
overtaken all on a sudden without
time for preparation by a cheeky
bird is one of the greatest ills flesh
is heir to, and might result disas
trously to the uninitiated, but old
hands are always all there on an
Undoubtedly the best weapon
barring a wire fence-is a good
?tcut stick or a blunt pitchfork.
A.S a rule, if a bird means to have
pour life or die in the attempt, he
marges,from about thirty yards,
?vhen you receive him at the bayo
net's point. He rushes at you with
lashing eye, looking the very em
bodiment of fury. Drawing him
jelf up to a height of ten feet or
nore, with wings outstretched and
lissing like a cobra, he makes four

The Color of the Arab.
The Edinburgh Review.
"The kings of horsekind are
;hose of a dark color," is an Arab
proverb, while another Eastern say
ing is that "one should be slow to
buy a cheatnut horse, and still
3lower to sell one of that color
which has turned out well." If we
visited a horse fair in Meath or
Yorkshire, it would be easy to find
plenty of farmers and dealerBwho
would recognize in these aayings
from a distant land opinions which
they cherish just as warmly as the
Arab of the desert. We see this
similarity, too, in the defects of
the two races.
The disease known as spavin is
prevalent among Arabian horses;
it is a constant ailment likewise of
the English hunter, and the Eng
lish race horse; it is a disease, so
to say, of the speedy horse, of that
which is much galloped. Curb and
ringbone, also diseases with which
the horse owner in the country is
only too familiar, are equally well
known to the Arab, and the foot,
which in our day is so frequently
tho seat of lameness, is alBO, though
apparently not to so great a degree
as in the West, likewise troubled
with defects. But into these tech
nical details this is not the place
to enter ; it is sufficient to say that
the qualities which go to make a
good horse are the same all over
the world, and though the Arabian
horse has some features which give
him a character of his own, yet,
so far as the qualities of a good
horse are concerned, he differs lit
tle from his Western brother.
We must not, however, pass
away from the typical Arabian
without a word as to color. "In
England an antiquated idea lingers
that the authentic Arab muet be
gray." Such an impression may,
perhaps, prevail among persons
altogether ignorant of horses, but
the sport of racing in India has so
increased our knowledgo of the
Arabian horse that 30upder views
now exist among horsemen. Two
extracts from Gon. Tweedee's work
will give all the information that
ia needed upon this point. His
Highness, the late Amir Fai Sal of
Najd, who was a high authority on
Arabian horses, stated that the
finest "may be of any color ; that
the prevalent color among the first
blood was various shades of gray;
that, on the whole, color went for
little, and height for nothing, and
that blood was everything." An
Dther author sums up the matter
thus : "Practically the Ku-hai-lan
jolors are bay and chestnut, and
;he numerous different shades of
rray and roan." Into the relation
)f c >lor to temperament it is ?m
)08B?ble here to enter. Such a dis
uission, interesting us it would be
o the lover of the horse, belongs,
lot only to the Arabian, but to the
quine race all the world over.
