The World's Crop or Grain.?The
international grain fair in Vienna open?
ed to-day. The official crop estimates
fjr 1S94, as compared with 1893, are not
so complete as last year, none being re?
ceived from Bulgaria and several di?
visions of Russia. In some instances
merely the combined percentages are
given, instead of separate estimates of
summer and winter grain.
The figures for the countries outside
of Europe are: India, 6,923,000 tons of
wheat, against 7,7(9,000 last vear:
United States, 390,000,000 bushels of
wheat, asjainst 382,000,000 last year;
23,000.000 bushels of rve, against 24,
000,0000 last year: 1 ,",00,000,000 of corn
against l.suo'mo.oon last year; Canada,

Her Search Rewarded.?After a
search of several years in both England
and this country Mrs. Carrie Forrester,
a deserted wife and mother, a few days
ago found her erring husband, Joseph
Forrester, living at No. 321 Berks
street, as the husband of another
woman and the father of two children,
and had him arrested. To Magistrate
Gillespie, at the lS:h district station
house, Mrs. Forrester No. 1 unfolded
the following story. She married Forres?
ter, who was then l'l years old, about
seven years auo in Englaud, and two
children, a girl and a boy, wvre born to
them. Four years ago her husband de?
serted her aud she learned that he had
married another woman and come to
America. One of herchildrcn, the boy,
died, aud she took passage for this
country in search of Forrester, bringing
the girl, now (*, years old, with her.
After a fruitless search of months the
wife, finally took up her residence with
friends at No. 4664. Trenton avenue,
Frank ford. There she. learned by mere
accident of her husband's whereabouts
The magistrate held Forrester in $800
bail for court on a charge of bigamy.?
Cooking Water.?One of the se?
crets of palatable food is knowing how
to cook water. The secret is to put
fresh filtered water into a clean kettle
already warm, to let. it boil cpuickly
and to use it the instant it is boiled.
To let it steam and simmer means to
have a combination of lime, iron and
dregs in the kettle and all the good
water evaporated into air. It is sur?
prising that tnauy housekeepers, other?
wise neat and particular, seem to think
that a kettle will stay clean without
active measures on their part. The
m*-re fact that nothing but water is
boiled in it does not jjunrautee it
against the need of scouriug. It will
soou become coated with a rusty-look?
ing layer of slime, unless it receives the
same care as other cooking utensils.
Food cooked with water which is not
properly boiled or which is boiled in a
kettle coated with dregs has not the
same flavor that properly cooked food
has. Moreover, it is "dangerous to
Wolcott Talks on Silver.?United
States Senator Walcott, who returned
from Europe Sunday, said that he came
back to take part in the campaign which
had been beguu in his State. In speak
iug of the silver question, Mr. Walcott
said that he had looked into the question
very carefully while in Europe, and
that he did not think there would
be any conference on bimetallists in the
very near future. Iu fact, he did not
think anything would be done until
England took the initiative.
The change of government in Eog
land seemed to be a pretty good thing
for silver, Mr. Walcott* thought, for
the present premier had expressed no
opinion on the subject, while'Mr. Glad?
stone was very much opposed to it.
The friends of silver were all among the
Mocha Coffee.?Everybody knows
that much of the so-called Mocha cof?
fee sold in the V/uited States is no such
thing, but only a few people know how
some of the counterfeit Mocha is made.
The berries growing on the highest
limbs of the coltee tree in Brazil are of?
ten shriveled in the semblance of the
true Mocha, and these are carefully set
aside, shipped to some port famous for
Mocha coffee and thence to the western
world as the true thing.
