At 1G I could paint a rcsa or lily so like tho
gcuuine flotrera that thy themaelres might
havo be;n deceived by iny portraj'ate and
kave txUen them for their ottti pretty reflec
tions ii a stream or mirror. And in music
I had so mastered the intricacies evn of
5ethoveii that I played ons of hu sonatas all
ihroujh at a public recital. But I ns cr had
orrcpt a room in my life, and if any enc had
aslrei m why eggs vera usid in ccokinj I
mijjit perbaj3 hava Leea obtuf.3 crough to
answer, 'For sr-oetening purpo.'' And I
gloried in my ignorance, considering it
''bliss," until one day in snnun-r, -rrhon "my
eyes rvere opened wider than tlioy ever wcie
lly parents had gono away fora day or
two, tiic5 ths chambermaid with them, and
immediately after thir deparlura the cook
vront to bod sick. I tras not much disturbed,
kowevcr, as there was plenty of cooked food
In the hoirw. But about noon, when I wa3
practising tha scales, and my iinjors were
scameiiii likoT.hite mice from ono end of
ths piano to tho other, a msrry laugh inter
rupted my exertions, and turning my head,
all bristling with hairpins for evening beau
tifiers, I saw my cousin Charley and two
iher youths from college. I always called
Charley my cousin, although tho 1 cl.itioiiohip
was a little indistinct, his elder half sister
having married my uncle.
"Jennj," ho said, "weVo como to dinner as
hungry as three bears."
Oh dear!' I gasped, '-there's no ono hero
but me, and I don't know how to got a din
ner. But thcro's cold meat and bread."
"Can't we havo a steak, Jenny," ho in
quired, "and baked potatoes and coffee? We'll
"Well," I rejoined, "como into tho kitchen,
but you'll havo to make a fire first."
"Wo can do it," was tho merry reply,
"Toms the philosopher."
"And 3 ou're the"'
No imiertmence," Charley retoi ted, '"but
null soon havo a fire."
Tro did, and, getting the potatoes, I was
putting them right into tho oven when my
cousin asked in a stago whisper, "Jenny,
Jenny, ain't you going to wash them first?"'
My cheeks burned, and taking them to tho
rink I gavo them such a scrubbing as po
tatoes never received before.
"Chailey,"' I whispered, "shall I v. ash tho
"If you choose, dear,"' ho answered, "but I
wouldn't use soap. Now hci c's 1 ho ground
I did not Iniow any more about it than if I
had licd in Jupiter or Venus, but tho boy's
nose led him right to the spot, and soon tho
coffee was boiling and tho steak broiling in
an appetizing wa3r. I placed tho meat upon
a dish, and vns intending ta leave it thus in
"beauty unadorned," when one of my visitors
suggested timidly: "Excuso me, but don't
you put a little something on it? Lard or
butter or something? '
"Not laid," Charley interposed, ''Great
Scott! butter, salt and pepper, Jenny, aro tho
Blushing more furiously than over, I ap
plied tho desired articles, and tho dinner wa3
really very good. Wo had a merry time, but
when my cousin said gcod-by ho added:
"You'ro a dear, jolly girl, Jenny, but if I
were you 1'J learn how to cook. It would
look better, don't you know?"
Yes, I did know, mid I was not silly enough
to tako offense. I took tho hint instead, and
so effectually that three mont' s afterwards,
when my advisor camo to vbit us, I sent tho
aook out of tho kitchen and got tho dmnor
myself, unassisted, and Charley whispered
but no matter what ho whispered. That was
several 3 ears ego, and now he sits opposite to
mo at tho table three times a da3'." Good
Tho I.oungo in tho Kitchen.
Ono of those notorious "houscicopers" who
aro constantly enlightening tho world about
the best way to dust a room or to spank a
baby gives this sapient advice: "Another
restful and loally economical thing is to havo
a lounge in tho kitchen whero 3-011 can lio
down cosily. With twenty minutes' chango
of position, a refreshing nrticlo to lead, or a
nap, you will bo surprised how 3-011 can turn
off tho v. ork afterward." It's to bo hoped
tho cook or tho maid-of-all-woik won't see
tins, for a loungo in tho kitchen would bo
such a nice plan for accelerating the work of
a house, beside, having conceded that, tho
next 1 equirement must bo a piano. If a
woman "docs her own work"' she can liedov.n
when or where sho pleases while waiting for
the dinner to cook, but tho chances w ould bo
ilio dinner would be ruined. T hero 13 no
economy in Uiat, surel3. People w ho can't
tit up "during business hours.' aro lo bo
nitied, but don't let themadvocato "a loungo"'
as a remedy, because it is a clumsy pieco of
furnituro that would bo awfully in tho way
of the pots and jjans. Boston Herald.

Advice to Young IIon8c3coiers.
Ono of Uio bsst rules over given by a
mother to si daughter just about to begin
housekeeping iias: "Always sea ovary pait
ctf 3-our .houso from garret to cellar at least
onco a day; tho servants get to know this,
and consequently they never throw things
into tho corners, or leavo untiJy ckhet.s."
This is especially good advice concerning tho
kitchen: Mr.ko a point of opening pantry
divvwci-b, hfnngtl.0 washtub lids; take a look
uito tho refrigei ator overy morning and too
what a dnToruiee it will niako in tho cook's
nevitnes... A good mistress can ahva3's man
ago to do tLis w hilo she is giving tho day's
qrdei"b, anl in such a v. ay as not to offend
tho gill's feelings; for some and the bet
girls ai-o vei-3 i.eKsitivo about being watched,
or rather at having their abihtx to keep a
tidy kitchen doubiciL At th same Ihne, tho
fciowledgo that her mistress is more than
likely to take a look into tha ref i igerator at
anytime will grejith influenco the putting
away or pro isions and keeping tha waste pan
empty. Atlanta Constitution.

Cnro for Cold:?.
AInuy persons take cold by having cold
feet, and to these tho cold douche to the feet
"3 a most effective cure. It stimulates tho
ncrcs mid arteries of tho feet and produces a
hrisk reaction of warmth. A single applica
tion will sometimes set cold feet glowing that
havo not been warm for a whole winter.
Often it w ill entirely euro tho life long afflic
tion of cold feet. Tho colder tho wRter th3
batter; and if one has not the convenience of
a douche it w ill serve v cry w ell to stand in a
tab or bat-in, fiiltd to six inches deep with tho
coldest v.awr at command. The warm reac
tion is essential. Harper's Basar,
