SHE WON THE TRICK.
Mrs. Smart's Story-How She Obtained
Her New Brown Silk Dress.
A'most all women like to go a visit
ing. I do myself. Jonathan used to
say that- a woman's kingdom come
was spending the afternoon some
wheres and drinking tea!
He'd never own that he keered a
red cent about going anywheres;
allers said that he jest as lives stay to
home the rest of his life as not; but
jest between you and me, this was
the tremenjousest lie that ever my
dear pardner told! He warn't a mite
to blame for it, though; all the men
folks in the universe has got into the
habit of saying that they don't think
much of visiting, and, yer see, it
kinder runs in the blood of 'em-! Got
to be hereditary. Bat don't believe
no such thing that are, for ain't true.
Every man that I seed loves to go
where there's something good to eat,
and that most folks want to visit for.
And now, while I'm on that pint,
jest allow me to observe that when
ever you hear anybody say that they
don't care a fig for politics, or religion,
or any other affair-and you may set
it right down that they've got ar terri
ble strong prejudice one way or
t'other ! And they say they don't
keer jest to blind people's eyes!
This "not caring anything about it"
ain't natral, by no means; it's onac
countable hard work to stand on both
sides of a river at once, unless you're
like the feller that I heared yer Cuzzin
Seth 'ieading about the other day,
- that had legs so long that he stood
with one foot on the island and t'oth
er on the main land, somewhere out
in the Subterranean sea. I've forgot
what his name was-terrible old cog
The Bible that I read says, "You
can't serve God and mammon." Now
I expect "mammon" means old Nicho
las (though our minister s--5y
means money), and the way I under
stand it is that yo've got to be in fa
vor of one or t'other, and no back
ing out! 'Tain't best to staid nenter
gender in anything!
The crowers last summer was a file
llustrati6n of my doctri. W- had
three of 'em-nice, sleek, handsome
fellers as ever you seed. Seth kept
'em for the sake of their crowing.
Time and again I've seen Seth hop
up on a log and try to crow hisself,
but he never made out much. He
has a grand ear for music, but no
' He named the three crowers
respectfully-Hob, Nob, and Bob.
Well, one day Hob and Nob was on
agreed ~about something and they
concluded to fight it out to their sat
isfaction. I was washing the dishes
at the sink by the scullery winder,
and had a good chance to watch the
They strutted out to a piece of lev
el ground and had a little private
conversation together, then they went
at it. It was a regular bona fide
-duel only both of 'em had the choice
of weapons. Bob stood a little ways
off, and I could see by the blink of
his eyes that he had made up his
mind not to have, nothing to do with
nary one -of 'em. Every once in a
whil, he'd stretch hisself up and crow,
-as though he was Major Giaral of all
creation. Hob and Nob they fit one
t'oth'er till the blood run from both
their heads, and their eyes was en
tirely banged up; and then all at
once, they wheeled right about and
'fell upon poor Bob! And gracious
goodness! such a thrashing as they
give that poverty struck son of a pul.
let I never seed. They picked him
they spurred him- they crowed and
cackled over him, if all the neuter
gender warn' knocked out of him by
the time they got through, then I'm
When they finished with him they
'peared to be good friends themselves,
and kinder shook hands on it-that is,
they stood up side and side and crow
ed in concoort. I had to take poor
Bob into the house and nursed him
'up for more'n a fortnit; and I guess
it was full three weeks afore he dared
to crow and say his soul was his own.
So much for standing neuter !
But to git back to my topic
which is going a visiting. Two years
ago come November Mrs. Green give
an afternoon party and invited all the
married ladies-myself concluded
to come. Naterally enuff I wanted to
go. I'm a social sort of a body and
mnjoy a neighborly chat and a cup of
tea powerfully. And Mrs. Green was
famous for her nice "set downs." My
gals was gone over to their Aunt Nab
by's to stay a week, and there was no
body to hum but Seth, Jonathan,
I told Jonathan that I guessed he'd
have to perpair his own supper that
day, for I was going to a tea party.
I told him he could eat some bread
and milk, and cake and cheese and
e and Seth could do likewise.
said he was bound for Bungtown
to stay all night with Ruben Smith, a
crony of his; and so there would not
be anybody to eat supper at our
house but Jonathan. My husband
was awful grouty about it, but little
did I care. He was pretty apt to be
sulky when anything run across the
grain. Some folks is.
At precisely two o'clock I started
for Mrs. Green's, and, early as it was,
there was a dozen women there afore
me. Everybody knowed that Mrs.
Green was the best cook in the village.
And my goodness, what a supper
that was! It is asfresh inmy mem
ory as though I swallowed it only yes
terday. There was cream cakes, and
butter, and two kinds of presarves
strawberry and tomato-and three
kinds of sweet cake, and doughnuts,
*and custards, and turnovers, and five
sorts of pies, besides spotted cheese.
And then the most splendiferous cup
of tea! I eat pretty hearty, and after
I had done we all sot round the table
and chatted considerable of a spell,
and it was past sunset afore I thought
of starting for home.
I ain't a very fast walker, especially
after eating such a supper as Mrs.
Green gits up, and the bell rang for
nine jest as I rived at our gate. There
warn't the least mite of light shining
from the winders of our house, but
that didn't worry me any, for Jona
than goes to bed by sunset and never
thinks of lighting a lamp more'n than
nothing at all.
I went to the door and turned the
handle, expected to be remitted with
out a minit's diflicultv; but no, the
door was fast! I shook it-it rattled
and clattered, but I might have saved
my pains; tLe door hold as fast as ev
er. I went rouid in the back entruns;
that was locked too. I shouted at
our bedroom window but nobody an
swered. I yelled "Jonathan !" at the
tiptop of my lungs. No reply. I
tried all the lower winders-they
were fastened down. Everything
about the premises was as still as a
tombstoner. I didn't know whether
to be mad or skairt. I considei ed a
minnit, and kinder thought I smelt
I'm natterally a detarmined woman;
and if there's anything I particularly
hate it's to have anybody get the bet
ter of me. I went round to the wood
shed and brought out the ladder-sot
it up agin' the side of the houise, and
climbed up to the garret winders.
As I expected I found this unfastened,
and I run it up and stepped inside.
Once in I gave the ladder a kick that
sent it to terry firmy; then I shoved
down the winder and buttoned it
down, and felt my way down to the
kitchen. Arrived there, I lit a candle
and flew to our bedroom, and there
was Jonathan giggling under the bed
clothes. I knowed for sartin' that
he'd fastened me out on purpose, and
that he calkerlated on keeping me
out all night, for he'd often said that
he meant to cure me of going a visit
ing. But I was bound to be even
"Johathan !" sez I, with a voice like
a trumpet-"Jon-a-thau! wake up,
quick! There's an awful thing hap
pened to the train on the Branch rail
road. The kears has run off fiom the
river bridge, wifh every soul on
"What !" says Jonathan-springing
up in bed and digging away at his
"The kears had run off from the
bridge!" sez I-'-h, massy on us!
I'm out of breath trying to git here
to tell you of it !"
Jonathan jumped out of bed, clap
ped on his shoes and trowsis, without
qtopping for his hat be cleared from
the house and streaked it for the rail
road. As soon as he was gone I shot
I the deor and barred it, udressed my
self, b owed out the light and went, to
bed. About fifteen mi'uits afterward
I heerd Jonathan a tramping up the
lane. I knowed by the sound of hi s
step that Le was as mad as a hornet.
And I didn't c:re a pin. He throwed
hisself agin the door as if he would
break it rite in, but he didn't git in
quite so qaick as he expected to. He
pounded -i.d clattered and thrashed,
but the door was good for it. And I
had my turn at giggling now.
"Sally !" screamed he-"Sally! Sal
ly Smart! where are you? Are you
deaf ? Let me in. Tarnation a'most!
let me in."
I kept still as a mouse and, I am
sorry to say it, my husband did swear
awfully. He used oaths big enough
for a chief of a troop of bandanney.
He couldn't get in, though, and of all
the names that he called me! you
never heerd the like ! Bymeby he
began to coax, and afore long he got
to begging. of me to let him come in.
Ye see it was the last of November,
and the nights was rather chilly.
Howsomever, I paid no attention to
"Sally," sez he, at last, "let me in,
do! That's a dear, good woman!"
I said nothing. "Sally," says he,
agin, "if you will let mes in I solemnly
promise never to say another word
agin' your going a visiting jest when
you're a mind to !" I laid still and
laffed in my sleeve. "Sally, my dear
wife," sez he, in a master pitiful tone,
"if you will be so good as to let me
in I'll buy you that brownd silk
gownd--I swow I will !"
That last argument turned the
scales. I got up and ondid the door
and remitted bim; .and' a humbler,
sorrier man you never seed ! I

Lime Soaked seed Corn.
As the time approaches for plant
ing corn, we call attention to the
method of soaking seed corn in lime
water to prevent the depredations of
the budworm on the young corn. *We
pinted last year the experience of
Mr. J. D. Collins, of Edgemore, in
which he stated that his corn from
lime-soaked seed entirely escaped the
worm. Mr. Collins has received a
letter from a farmer living in Ala
bama saying that he has adopted this
plan for four years and it has worked
well every time. The mixture should
be much about the color and consis
tency of thick milk and the, seed corn
kept in soak six hours, and longer.
This is a simple remedy and within
the reach of all. A peck of lime, Mr.
Collins says, is sufficient to prepare
seed for a whole year's plantavg.

'MRS S. A. NETLE_.
While there is nothing wore con
ducive to the coifort of a 1:oosewife
than a wve1-appointed kitchen, how
many women worry along with a fry
ing-pan, one big iron kettle, and no
teakettle or other utensils!
There are many things that are of
no use, and the assortment needs to
be made with care. It is a good idea
if one cannot get what she wants at
first to get what she cau, and theii set
aside a small sum each mouth to be
devoted to that purpose. One will
be surprised how soon one can have
a well-furnished kitchen.
There should be a good stove. It
is poor economy to use a stove with
the top warped nearly double and the
grate so poor one does not dare poke
the ashes. There are miany excellent
stoves. A reservoir is a great help;
but one should always have a good
While hardly an article of furni
ture, there is nothing of more impor
tance than the chimney, as the best
stove in the world will give little sat
isfaction with a poor chimney.
Of the actual furniture of the room
I have little to say. I think that in
addition to the usual furniture every
kitchen should contain a low rocking
chair and a high stool, and one should
sit at her work as much as possible.
Potatoes can be peeled just as well
and as fast while one is sitting.
In the way of kettles, one should
avoid big, Leavy, iron ones as much
as possible. There should be one
large iron kettle to use on extra occa
sions, such as rendering lard, making
soap, etc. For ordinary occasions,
the granite kettles are preferable.
An ordinary family needs about two
of these kettles Get those with flat
bottoms and straight sides, with han
dles or bails. They can be used on
top of the stove. and the bottoms kept
as clean as the inside. One needs al
so a granite pan, without a handle,
holding about a gallon, th it can be
used either for cooking, preparing
vegetables, or for stirring up cake.
Get granite wheneyer you can, as it
is cheaper, besides being easi%-r to
One needs a couple of quart pans
for making sauices, etc. In the way
of frying pans, one needis at. L.:,t a

sheet-iron pans, with long, cldA b:m
dies. Sinall ones, holding abut a
piut, are very convenient for makin.
a stimll quantity of sauce or to r
two or three eggs. These kep
bright and do not discolr anything
cooked in them.
A steam cooker is a great conven
ience. One can make a sort of sub
stitute for a steamer of a common
kettle. Take a pie-pan that will fit
down within two or three inches of
the bottom, cut it full of holes with a
large, broken nail then pound it
smooth. Put a hole in each side, and
put a string through to lift it up by.
Things will steam much quicker in
this than in a steamer on top of a
kettle. When not using the regular
steamer I often use my colander as a
I have an iron griddle, but many
recommend the stone griddles very
highly as they do not need greasing.
IOne needs at least four pie-tins, but
they may also be used as pans for
layer cakes, if one cannot afford the
regular pans. In getting round cake
pans, get those smooth on the bottom,
as I have never yet seen a fan cy-bot
tomed pan one could turn the cake
out of without sticking more or lkss.
Where one slices the cake off before
putting on the table, a deep, square
pan is preferable. Many use the
pound baking-powder cans to bake in.
Of iread paus, one needs at least
three, one long pan, that nmxy~ be
used as a dish drain, and twvo others
that willjhold two loaves and one re
spectively. Be sure to get the deep
pans. Some are so shallow that
where the flour is inclined to "run" it
is almost impossible to keep the bread
in the pan. Sometimes the pans will
not hold water; then it pays to have
a little solder put on the corners so
they may be used for cthe~r purposes
The new kind of bread pan, with a
lid, is a great convenience to those
who can afford them. When getting
a coffee-pot, be careful not to get too
small a one, even if your family con
sists of only two, on account of com
pany. In getting gem pans, d~o not
get the eight-pan size, unless you get
two of them, as they do rnot hold
more than two-thirds of even a small

board, although a great niany get
along without the bread-board and a
flour-sifter. A wooden bowl for
cha'ping vegetables and meats, and
a chopping knife (a double one is pre
ferable) are indispensable.
Of the small articles. one needs a
skimmer, nutmeg grater.. at least two
pint cups, and a grater. Of the grat
ers, the revolving kind is the handier,
but I have known many to make
their own by melting open a fruit can,
straightening it out and cutting it full
of boles with a nail.
One ought to have an egg-beater.
Many complain that they are not dur
able, but I have used mine nearly five
years, and it is as good as ever. Once
or twice it has worked lQoe, but the
"gude mon" of the house soon remiedi
ed that. Many break an egg on a pa
ter and try to use the egg-beater;bu
it wvil give much better satisfaction
to use a pint cup or bowl.
A tunnel and can-opener are well
worth the money they cost, and there
are many novelties on the live and
ten-cent counters that are of great ad
vantage. There should be a set of
common knives, forks, and spoons, to
use in cooking; and by~ all me~aus
have a good, sharp butcher knife and
