CURIOUS ANECDOTES ABOUT WED
A clegvman in New York was one even
ing summoned to his parlor, and found
there a couple who wished to be married.
The groom was a typical "Bowery boy,*'
.and the bride a woman some years his
senior, who looked as though her temper
might have been soured by long superin
tendence of milliners' apprentices. No
objection appearing on the questioning of
the minister, the couple stood up togeth
er and the service was begun. The first
part of it went off smoothly, but when it
came time for the bride to reply to the
question, "Wilt thou take this man," etc,
she replied *'No, I won't." There was
a sudden pause, some hurried question
ing and expostulation by the astonished
groom, which effected nothing more than
a reiteration of the bride's refusal, and
the outraged clergyman, in dignified and
"severe words, delivered a scathing re
buke and showed the party to the door.
A half hour elapsed when the bell rang
again, and the same couple appeared.
The groom no way abashed, explained to
the clergyman that he had made up the
quarrel between himself and the lady, aft
er considerable coaxing, and had pre
vailed on her to return and be married.
The clergyman hesitated, but at length
consented, and the service was again be
gun. When the groom was asked,
"Wilt thou take this woman," etc., he
replied, most emphatically, "No, I won't.
It's sny turn now.*' The bride burst into
tears at this unexpected sign of pluck in
the man she had fondly hoped to rule,
"and the clergyman, fairly incensed,
turned them out of the house with scant
ceremony. An hour later they returned,
and the groom explained that he had
made up with the lady, and they had fin
ally determined to be married, and have
no more nonsense about it. The clergy
man consented this time with alacrity,
.and the groom responded to the ques
tions asked with satisfactory promptness,
and the lady performed her part with
dignity and ease. When he came to the
last part of the ceremony, however, the
clergyman said, "It's my turn now. I
will not pronounce you man and wife.
You may go somewhere else to get mar
ried." And the fickle couple, after their
'third attempt, were turned away still
While it is not common, fortunately,
for any such violent refusals to be heard,
it frequently happens that some one
blunders* It is seldom the bride, for
whether it be that women are more at
home in a novel situation than are meu,
or that they study up their parts with
more care, they generally knowjust what
to do and say. Onjone occasion, however,
an Episcopal clergyman says he was per
forming the marriage ceremony, and
when he asked the bride, "Wilt thou
take this man." etc., she replied, "I
wiU, and verily I thank God that he has
called me to this state." The answer
served all practical purposes, although it
was evident she had been studying the
wrong sacrament. Through eagerness or
excitement, the people who are being
married often speak too soon or too
much, as once happpened when a clergy
man mariied a couple who were appar
ently country people who had come to
the city to be married. Both seemed
elated, and their manner toward each
other was remarkably frank in its tender
ness, and their impatience was as appar
ent. When the clergyman began the all
important question to the groom, the
latter was so much in earnest that he re
sponded to each clause in it, so that it
assumed the form of a conversation some
thing like the following: "Wilt thou,
John, take this woman, Sarah—"
"Yes" "to be thy true and lawful wife—"
"Yes, sir," "to keep and to cherish—"
"Yes, sir ree." At the end of the ques
tion "till death do you part," he burst
out, "You may just bet I will.'* The
clergyman was more annoyed than amused
by the rustic's emphasis, but he fairly
laughed when, in response to the similar
question put to the bride, which she heard
through without interruption, she replied,
"I won't have nothing else."
A good story is told of a newly appoin
ted Justice of the Peace in one of the
Western States who was called on soon
after his accession to office, to marry a
couple. He was a bachelor and never
had been to a wedding and had no form
book which showed himjust how to do
the thing properly. However there was
no one else within fifty miles who, as he
thought, could marry them, so he deter
mined to try, and, having an eye to the
main chance, he looked for his fee in a
novel manner, as he did not expect to
receive a large one, and,judging from the
man's appearance, felt doubtful of get
ting any. He began by swearing the
groom: "Put your right hand on the
Bible. You do solemnly swear that the
evidenceiyou shall give in the case of
Robert Jones against Mary Smith shall
be the truth, the whole truth, and noth
ing but the truth, so help you God.
Kiss the book and pay mo one shilling."
The groom, somewhat suprised, did this,
and the Squire proceeded: "Will you
take Mary Smith to be your wife?"
*'I will." Will you provide for her,
give her good and suitable clothes, and
keep plenty of provisions in the house,
and will you take care of her if she should
be sick?" "I will." The squire then
proceeded to swear the bride in the same
way, looking out for his other shilling,
ana interrogated her as to whether she
would "be a good and obedient wife, and
take care of his house, nurse him if he
should be sick, and take good care of the
babies." The bride blushed a little at
the last clause, but promised and the er
ratic Justice said': "The court finds you
married, and orders that the cost be paid
by Robert Jones. Then you can go."
The man grumbled a little at being
obliged to disburse money the third
time, but paid a dollar finally, and the
FARM AND HOUSEHOLD.
Cookies (from A. E. S., Jackson, Minn.).
—Three eggs, one cup butter, one and a
half cup sugar, small pinch salt, small
pinch soda, aud a teaspoonful of caraway
seed use as much flour*as you can con
veniently roll out very thin, and bake in
a quick oven.
Gem tarts.—Bake some light, sweet
gems, after the usual fashion, only they
are prettier when round. When they
are nearly cold, take a very sharp-point
ed knife and cut the crust around, separ
ate the two halves, breaking them across
the center. Have ready some fresh hot
apple-sauce, beaten up lightly or strain
ed, as for marmalade, and put one nice
heaping spoonful on each half of the gem.
Set as many as you wish in a baking-tin,
put a stewed raisin in the center of each,
sprinkle a little desiccated cocoanut over
them, and set them in the oven to brown
slightly while the dinner is being served.
Serve warm. It makes a plain, but pret
ty dessert, and one almost always availa
ble, while it requires but little time in
Cracker Plum Pudding.—Make "a very
sweet custard and put into it a teaspoon
ful of salt. Take soda crackers, split
them, and butter them very thick. .Put
a layer of raisins on the bottom of a large
pudding disb, and then a layer of crack
ers, and pour on a little of the custard
when warm, and after soaking a little put
on a thick layer of raisins, pressing them
into the crackers with a knife. Then
put on another layer of crackers, custard,
and fruit and proceed thus till you have
four layers. Then pour over the
whole enough custard to rise even with
the crackers. It is the best made over
night, so that the crackers may soak.
Bake from an hour and a half to two
hours. During the first half hour pour
on, at three different times, a little of the
custard, thinned with milk, to prevent
the top from being hard and dry* If it
browns fast cover with paper. Bread
and butter pudding is made in a similar
Marble Cake.—A lady says: I will
send you a recipe for marble"cake, which,
if made right cannot be beaten, viz.:
Light part—Light sugar, one and one
half cupfuls butter, one-half cupful
sweet milk, one-half cupful soda, one
half teaspoonful cream of tartar, one
teaspoonful whites ef four eggs flour,
two and one-half cupfuls. Dark Part—
Brown sugar, one-half cupful molasses,
one-quarter cupful butter, one-quarter
cupful sour milk, one quarter cupful
soda, one-quarter teaspoonfiul cream of
tartar, one-half teaspoonful flour, one
and one-quarter cnpful yolks of two
eggs cloves, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg,
—all ground—of each one-half |teaspoon
ful. Beat and mix as follows: Beat the
eggs with the sugar having the- butter
softened by the fire, then stir it in put
tbe soda and cream of tartar in the milk
mix all together and stir sift and stir in
the flour. When both parts are ready,
drop a spoonful of the dark, then a spoon
ful of the light over the bottom of the
dish it is to be baked in, and so proceed
to fill up the pan, dropping the light
upon the dark as you continue to fill up
A very pretty and cheap rug may be
made from old pieces of woolen cloth, de
laines, worsteds etc, by cutting them into
bias strips three-fourths ofan in inch wide,
then with a darning needle and coarse
cotton yarn or small cord sew through
the middle of the strip, taking stitches
about half an inch leng. Get your needle
well filled before pulling it through
twist the cloth round on the needle until
it is a roll somewhat r. sembling chenille.
Take some strong cloth as foundation for
your rug and SJW your chenille to it,
either commencing in the center and
sewing rouud, or in strips. Finish the
edge with pinking, or some border to suit
the taste. Of course the beauty of the
mat will depend upon the colors you
have and their arrangement.
If you are troubled with rats get at
the drug store some crude potash, and
put it in their runways and holes. The
potash will stick to their feet, and dis
liking this, they try to lick it off, and get
their tongues burnt by the operation, and
they will soon leave the premises in dis
Apple-Pudding.—Take equal parts
good oatmeal porridge and water and add
Graham flour enough to make a batter
thicker than forgems. Oil a basin of the
size required, cover the bottom with bat
ter, and place in this dressed sub acid
apples, in quarters closely packed. Cov
er all this with another layer of the bat
ter, and put it at once to steam over an
abundance of hot water, so that it will
scald and begin at once. Keep it boil
ing until the apples are tender. Serve
warm with pudding sauce, more or less
sweet, according to the tartness of the
apples. This crust is very light and
Orange Pudding.—Four sweet oranges
peeled and picked to pieces and put in a
deep pudding dish with two cups ofsugar.
Put a quart of milk, the yolk of three
eggs, and two dessert-spoonfuls .of corn
starch on to boil. Take off, cool it, and
pour it on the oranges. Then beat the
whites to stiff froth, put it over the pud
ding and place in the oven until it is of
light brown color.
Cane-seatod chairs are very apt to
wear out, and then, if their owners are
far from the upholsterer, they arethrown
aside as useless. Any woman with a lit
tle ingenuity can repair them so they
will be as good as new. Take any piece
of bagging or burlaps—no matter how
coarse—and fit them to chairs, cutting
them large enough to wrap about -the
rounds and hold the splints or canes.
Now set it on with a darning-needle and
twine twice doubled, and turn up a hem
as you sew on the burlaps. When half
fitted stuff it will "excelsor" shavings of
poplar wood or if you have them, cut off
layers from old quilts, and spread them
smoothly over the chairs, under the bur
laps. The layers of cotton can be tacked
together before they are put in, and then
they can be laid more smoothly upon the
old canes. Fine hay will also answer for
stuffing when nothing better can be pro
cured. Now sew down the other two
sides, and take pieces of carpeting, or of
enameled cloth, or colored rep, or all
wool dress goods, and tack them closely
down with large silvered or brass-headed
nails, which come for the purpose, and be
hold! your chairs are far handsomer and
more comfortable than before. The ma
terials have, possibly cost you little, for
many an attic would furnish them all but
the nails, which must be procured at the
upholsterer's. Gimp to match the ground
color of the cushion, or even worsted
braid, is desirable to place along the
edge of the covering, and drive the nails
directly through it. This makes a hand
some finish to the cushion.
Safety requires that lamps should be
filled every day. As the oil burns down,
a highly inflammable gas is created on
the surface, and if the oil is allowed to
burn very low it gives room for the col
lection of a quantity sufficient to cause
an explosion, which a simple jar of the
table will sometimes produce.
A fine stain can be imparted to furni
ture made of beech or pine in a very sim
ple manner. Dissolve three ounces of
permanganate of potash and three ounces
sulphate of magnese in two quarts of hot
water. Apply this to the surface of the
wood with a brush and repeat if necessa
ry. The magnese salt is decomposed in
contact with the fiber of the wood, and a
fine permanent stain is produced. If the
objects are small, a more dilute bath can
be prepared, and the wood immersed in
it for one or five minutes, until it is
THE CONTMBION OFSCARLT FEVER
Hall's Journal of Health has the
following suggestive and valuable
article on this subject: Since none
of our common diseases is more dreaded
than scarlet fever, it is important to
know what can be done to prevent its
diffusion. To this end the following
conditions should be observed:
Let the patient be assigned an upper
chamber, freely ventilated, comfortably
warm, and reasonably cool. There
should be no carpet on the floor, no cur
tains about the bed, and no cushioned
and upholstered chairs or sofas. Use an
iron bedstead, and if possible let the bed
ding be destroyed by fire as soon as the
patient is so far recovered as to mingle
with the other members of the family.
The handkerchiefs which he has used
should be burned. Its better to furnish
bits of old cotton or linen in place of
handkerchiefs, that each piece, as soon
as soiled, may be removed and destroyed,
The spittoon, or other vessel which re
ceives the expeetorations, should contain
a little water with carbolic acid or chlo
ride of lime. One or the other of these
disinfectants must be used freely about
the room. An indispensable article for
the comfort of the patient is an earth
closet. There are several kinds in use, but,
as far as we have observed, the simplest
and cheapest is the best. Common gar
den soil, perfectly dry, should be used, or
sifted coal ashes. Either of these sub
stances will readily deodorize the intes
tinal discharges. A small quantity of
sulphate of iron—copperas—if added to
the soil or ashes, will serve as an excel
lent disinfectant. Nurses, and all others
who come in contact with the patient,
should frequently wash their hands
with carbolic soap." Clothing taken from
the patient, if not burned, should be al
lowed to remain in water containg one of
the above-named disinfectants two or
three days before being washed. These
simple suggestions, if followed, would re
sult in a greatly decreased number of
cases of scerlet fever: and if the means
proposed were generally adopted, we be
lieve that in a short time the disease
would be effectually "stampedout." We
are aware that in many families the
course we propose is impracticable.
They have not the room nor th« means.
But they can follow some of our direc
tions. They can ventilate the sick room
and use disinfectants. It is possible
that physicians, in treating this disease,
neglect, sometimes, an important part of
their duty. They do not enforce, as they
ought, the simple regulations by which
so much my be done toward destroying
the con tagion.
COOKING FOOD FOR STOCK.
Mr. V. S. Beekman of Ulster Co., New
York, evidently has a poor opinion of
cooking food for cows. He details, in the
New York Tribune, some ofhis experience
in this line. He had seen in several Ag
ricultural papers, and in a pamphlet ed
ited by one who had an ax to grind, that
there were large profits arising from
cooking food for cows. From the state
ments it appears that there was a saving
from cooking of one-third of the feed, and
he concluded that if by cooking $900
worth of food lie could make it go as far
as $1,200 uncooked he could afford to
pay $65 for steamer and "go in." Well,
he tried the cooking business one winter
and got enough of it. The labor he says
is increased ten fold. In cold weather
only a little can be fed at a time, as stock
do not like it cold. He thinks not one
out of ten, who advocate cooking, do their
own work, and, for his part, he had rather
spend his spare time in winter in reading
and recreation than in the barn saving
a few dollars coddling his stock.
There are a good many others who
have tried cooking that have abandoned
it, and feel, we fear, something like Mr.
Beekman in regard to it.

dies, because, as the New York Tribune says,
"he sympathizes with them in all theiifafflict

Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is to-day
more largely employed as a blood and liver
medicine, and also as a cough remedy, than
any other remedial agent in the world. His
Favorite Prescription, he does not recommend

pounders of worthless, humbug nostrums, but
to all diseases and weaknesses* peculiar to wo
men it has proved itself so much of a specific
that it now enjoys [great popularity aud uni
versal confidence. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pur

said, as they are known everywhere as the
greatest specifics for Catarrh-and "cold in the
head," ever given to the public. And be

pages, which he sells at the unparalleled low

forty thousand copies. The secret of Dr.
Pierce's success, as wellas that ot the great re
vivalists, and scores ofother Americans, who
by their genius have advanced step by step
from obscurity to affluence and distinction,
consists in treating the people with consider
