One of the oldest purely social clubs
was the Everlasting club, limited in
membership to a hundred people, wl^o
divided the day among them in such a
way that some of them were always
on the premises. Solely for the pur
pose of keeping up the fire from which
members lighted their pipes, an old
woman was kept, and during the fifty
years of existence the club members
smoked fifty tons of tobacco.
No one who had not killed an op
ponent in a duel was allowed to beof
a member of the Man Killing club,
where the conversation was confined
to wounds, bullets and slaughter. Curi
ously enough, most of the members
Very different in character was the
Six o'Clock club, whose members, num
bering six only, met at 6 in the even
ing and separated at 6 in the morning.
Meeting early in the evening and
sitting smoking until midnight, the
curious people forming the Humdrum
club observed the strictest silence.
But perhaps the most curious club
of all was the No Nose club, whjpb
was founded by an unwilling follower
of the Egyptian fashion of flat faces.

WASHING THE DISHES.
Doing TM Job Only Once a Day, It la
Said, Saves Time.
"The careful housekeeper will always
resent the suggestion that once a day
is often enough to wash dishes." writes
Dr. H. Barnard in "Table Talk'" in the
National Food Magazine. "She cannot
train herself to allow soiled plates and
silverware to stack up from one meal
to the next, for she has been taught
that such actions are evidence of shift
less, slovenly housekeeping. As a mat
ter of fact, along with many other no
tions which are fixed in the operation
the home, both time and energy are
saved by cutting out two of the three
daily dishwashing jobs."
Dr. Barnard goes on to recite the ex
perience of one housekeeper who actu
ally dared study the homely work of
dishwashing. One week she washed
dishes three times a day the next week
she washed each day's dishes alto
gether. She used the same number of
dishes each day In both weeks. She
found that it took her fifty-one minutes
a day to wash dishes after each meal
and forty-one minutes a day to wash
them once a day.
This took account only of time, but
there was a considerable additional
saving in gas or fuel consumed by
heating water once instead of thrice a
day, to say nothing of the saving in
SALT IN THE FOOD.
Why ItaFlavor at Times Is Too Weak
or Too Strong.
The average housewife wonders whj
she often over or under salts her
dishes when she "knows" that she
salted them just right, as she always
did and as the recipes called for.
The reason is just this: The season
log value of different brands of salt
varies widely. This is easily proved
Take five slices of ripe tomatoes applj
equal parts of five makes of salt upon
the separate pieces. Eat as soon as
salted. The difference in flavor, per
meation, rapidity and equality of dis
solution and seasoning value are read
A table salt should be fine, the crys
tals of equal size, quickly soluble and
free from ingredients which absorb
moisture from the air Large and
small crystals will not dissolve uni
formly consequently the full salting
effect is not obtained until the lar?e
crystals are dissolved. The quicklj
soluble salt diffuses itself through the
food at once and gives an equality of
savor. Sticky salt is an Intrusive nui
Failures in salting are largely due to
changing from one make of salt to an
other. Get the best grade, grow ac
customed to its use and stick to it
San Francisco Chronicle.
When the Indians traveled together
they seldom walked or rode two or
more abreast, but followed one anoth
er in single file. It has been thought
by some that this practice resulted
from the lack of roads, which com
pelled them to make their way through
woods and around rocks by narrow
paths. If this were the real reason
for the practice, then we should expect
to find that the tribes who lived in
open countries traveled in company, as
do whites. The true reason for jour
neying as the Indians did in single file
seems to be a feeling of caste. This
feeling was at the bottom of other
customs of the Indians. It made their
women slaves and rendered the men
silent and unsocial. This peculiarity
is Asiatic. How it has warped and
disfigured Hindu life is well known.

THE WORLD'S GREATEST SONG
Franz Schubert, composer of heart
ful masterpieces, was born at Lich
tentahl, near Vienna, Austria, Janu
ary 31, 1797. The son of a country
schoolmaster, little Franz was an
apt pupil. At the age of seven he
attended the Imperial School of
Music and sang in the choir of the
Imperial Chapel. Three years later
his voice failed, but his proficiency
with the violin secured him employ
ment. When only seventeen years
old he returned home to help his
father, during which time he com
posed a famous mass, and more than
a hundred heart melodies, including
the renowned "Serenade." Disap
pointed ambition and failing health
inspired the divine sadness which
has made his "Adieu" a classic and
characterizes so many of his com
positions. At the age of thirty-one
he passed away, after composing a
"Swan Song," amid the closing hours
of his pathetic career.
This beautiful swan song, "Adieu!
'Tis Love's Last Greeting," is to be
found on page 175 of "Heart Songs"
the song book that it took four
years to make, and being the choice
of 20,000 music lovers all over the
world. The distribution of this
book by this paper to its readers is
one of the most wonderful enter
prises ever undertaken by a paper.
