Wedded to a Vase.
Not long ago considerable commo
tion was caused in the Chinese city of
Hankow when the attrac-tiv'e and popu
lar daughter of a pr-ominent Chinese
official wvas married with great pomp
and ceremony to a large red vase
which was supposed to represent a de
ceased bridegroom who hnd died a few
years before his marriage, whereupon
his grief stricken bride elect declared
that she would never marry any one
else. but would devote herself as a
widowv for the rest of her life to the
family of her husband. In order to do
this, however, it was necessary that
she should legally belong to that famn
ily and so the strange ceremony with
the vase was gone through with to ena
ble her to become ar member of the
family. Sinc'e then it has been sug
gested that an arch should be built in

Cashmere shawls are of two kinds..
:ne made by weaving small pieces and
;ewing them together. the other by em
broidering.the pattern on a plain wov
?n cloth. The real cashmere thread is
!alled pashumeen and is made from
the down. not the hair, of the Tibet
ouat. which is raised In the mountain
:s provinces of that country. but the:
wool or down is all carried to Cash
mere for iainufacture. the business be
ing under strict government control
ind to such degree that no real pashu
meen wool can be sold or smuggled
into any other province of India. Fine
shawls are made in Punjab and oth
wr provinces from goats' and sheeps'
wool and sold as genuine cashmere,
but are of an inferior grade. In Cash
mere 100.000 persons are employed in
the shawl manufacture. The weavers
are all males: most .of the spinners
tire women. The weaving of a shawl
of ordinaryv pattern occupies three
weavers for three months, the more
elaborate and costly for from twelve
to fifteen months.

A -French i-heumst lhasr shown that the
apple .contains an oxidizing ferment
which produces the brownish or red
dish color of cider. The manner In
which this substance produces oxida
tion can readily be observed by any
one who cuts an apple open and leaves
it exposed for a short time to the air
The cut surfaces gradually turn red
as the oxygen of the air unites with
the juice-iD a word, the apple rusts.
Rusting of an apple may also be
brought about by simply bruising the
fruit without breaking the skin Ev
erybody knows that apples that have
fallen violently to the ground show
red or rusty spots underneath the
bruised rind In this case the oxygen
Is derived from the air contained-In
the ducts or interstices among the tiu
sues of the fruit, and it becomes active
through the breaking of the cells that
Inclose the oxidizing ferment If an
apple Is cooked before Its skin Is
broken its tissues do not oxidize when
exposed to the air This Is explained
on the supposition that the oxidizing
properties of the ferment are destroyed
by heat. Harper's.

Music In the Home.
We are all more or less aware of the
value. and Indeed the necessity of fur
nishing books to all children and even
of making It possible for them all to
see good pietures We are apt. bow
ever to regard music as something
that we need provide only for the ex
ceptional child. the child who shows
signs of being what we call -musical "
This is due partly to the fact that mu
sie lessons are more expensive than
books. and that a ticket to a concert
costs about four times as much as a
ticket to d museum Our mistake is In
fancying that costly music lessons and
concerts are the only means of furnish
Ing musical instruction of the best
kind to children. Some of the finest
music in the world Is so simple that
any mother who plays the piano at all
can perform it for her children, and.
moreover. teach them to play it them
