Nowhero can tho correct measure of
the careful housewife bo tfo readily
and easily taken as In the Jelly or pre
serve clOBdt. Too many families de
pend upon the grocer for such things,
losing both In expense and in quality.
Pickled and prosorved lrults and veg
etables go- a long way In giving vari
ety to the homo table In the wlntor
hon native fruits and vegetables are
ao longer to be bad, except in this
Jiprm. Children, and tho men folks
-j3s well, prefer tho Jams and Jollies
'"'which mother makes'' to any which
can bo bought at tho storo, and though
tholr preparation involves intelligent
thought and hard work, later enjoy
ment ought to bo an amplo reward.
Berries and small fruits are about
done In tho markets, but fruits and
vegetables sultablo for pickling and
preserving are now in their prime.
Modern ingenuity applied to house
keeping problems has gone far beyond
the old-tlmo preserves and sweet
-sauces of a generation or so ago.
First on tho list como tho Jellies, and
tor this purpose currants, apples,
grapes, quinces and cranberries are
the favorites. Currants are now out
-of the market, and It muBt be as
sumed that the housewife took advan
tage of tho marked supply when the
fruit was in season. Both white and
red currants make delicious Jelly, and
a mixture adds variety in color and
x All fruit Intended for Jelly should
7 be tart and not too ripe, as in the lat
ter case difficulty may be experienced
In getting the Jelly firm enough to
suit. The making of Jelly requires
much sugar, and if the fruit used is
mild In flavor or ripe the result will
be insipid. Apples lend themselves
very readily to tho use of the Jelly
makers, whether table fruit or of the
crabapple variety. Porter apples and
Gravenstelns are especially rec
ommended, but a good, firm Baldwin,
not too ripe, and in fact any firm,, tart
apple of pleasant flavor can 'be used.
Crabapples are universal favorites for
Jelly making, the color depending
1 omewhat upon the variety of apple
biased, but more on the cooking, espe
cially the time the Jelly Is boiled
after the sugar is put In.
Grape Jelly is well liked, but for
this wild grapes, picked while still
partially green, are needed, though a
mixture of wild grapes and Concords
makes a very good Jelly. Quinces also
make a beautifully colored, spicy
jelly, economical housewives often
using the quince parings when the
fruit haB been prepared for preserv
lng. Other seasonable material is to
fce found In barberries, picked before
I jjfcle frost comes while some of the
'fruit Is still green, damsonB and cran
berries. The latter Is possibly the
simplest and easiest to make, as the
fruit Jellies readily and less care is
necessary to keep out the mashed
fruit Boston Transcript,

CAUGHT BY LETTER BOX.
Last winter a well-known Vienna
lawyer went out to post a lettor. He
was wearing a large signet ring oa
the title finger of his right hand, and
as be pushod the letter through tho
slit of the letter box this caught and
held his hand vast. Alt efforts to ro
leaae himself proved fruitless. Within
10 minutes the wholo street was block
ed by an enormous crowd and ho was
tho center of a storm of chaff. Tho
police had to como to tho rescue to
keep tho people back, but they could
do nothing to release tho prisoner.
Not even the police dared meddle with
a letter box. It was not until authornty
had been obtained from the head
postofOce that workmen wore allowed
to unscrew the box and take It to
pieces and to release the unfortunate
lawyer. Tho Strand.
ADVERTISING BY AIRSHIP.
A novel form of advertising has Just
been inaugurated by a large retail
trading firm in Berlin. Every other
evening a large dirigible balloon flies
over tho leading thoroughfares of the
clt7. Magic lanterns, placed on each
side of the car, project advertlso
mets of the various goods on to a
sheet of canvas fastened to the en
velope of the balloon. These adver
tisements can easily be read from
the ground below.
The attention of the people In the
streets 1b attracted by the noise of
the engine and by powerful search
lights, which are turned on In the car,
between each advertlsemnt The sen
sation caused by so unusual a sight Id
mld-alr can be easily imagined.
VEGETABLE ELECTRIC BATTERY.
Scientists tell us that there has
been discovered in the forests of In
dia a strange plant which possesses in
a very high degree astonishing elec
tric and magnetic power. Tho hand
that breaks a loaf from It receives in
stantly a shock equal to that which Is
produced by the conductor of an in
ductive coll. At a distance of six me
ters a magnetic needle Is affected by
it. The energy of this singular force
varies, but In times of storms its in
tensity Increases In striking propor
tion. ' One never by any chance sees a
bird or an Insect light on the electric
plant; nature seems to warn them that
they would find their death. Chris
JAPS AND AZTECS.
A party of Japs blown across the
Pacific In a gale, after fearful priva
tions landed on tho American coast
and were immediately arrested for
landing without Inspection. That
seems a rather unreasonable enforce
ment of tho law. By the way, tho Inci
dent seems to confirm what the Japa
nese scientists have claimed, that the
original Aztecs of Mexico were Japa
nese who had been driven to this
country in a gale and In the course of
generations founded a race. Relics of
tho Aztecs in Mexico bear witness,
say the Japanese scientists, of kin to
a similar religion and customs held by
the Japanese In their early history.
SHALLOW NORTH SEA.
Tho North sea Is so shallow that a
vessel1 can sail' from London to Ham
burg in water not more than 120 feet
deep, except for one short stretch. If
this depth could be decreased ono-half
that Is. the bottom of the North sea
raised sixty feet the island of tho
Frisian shore would bo linked togeth
or in an oven coast lino, a bolt of land
ten miles broad would be added to tho
Danish coast, a multitude of low Isl
ands would spring up off tho English
and Belgian coasts and a great Island
would rise up In tho Dogger bank.
BEES IN ENGLISH CHURCH.
Several thousand bees and a storo
of honey weighing, It Is estimated, at
least a hundred weight, havo been dis
covered among tho rafters of Roxeth
parish church, Harrow. During tho, re
cent hot weather members of tho con
gregation notlcod honey trickling
down a wall of. tho church and this
led to tho discovery of tho bees and
their store. The, honey was afterward
romoyed in pallfuls and the bees were
hWod elsewhere. London Chronicle.

MIbb Nancy Isaacs, whoso appoint

Sample of Ingalls' Satire.
Many years ago, when Senator In
galls was in the senate, oleomargarine
was a bone of contention. Tho debate
led Ingalls to utter one of those epi
grammatic sentences which made him
famous. "I have never, to my knowl
edge, tasted oleomargarine," Bald In
galls, "but I have stood In the pres
ence of genuine buter with awo for Its

Thought His Duty Ended.
The Due de Raguso once explained
to the Countess de Boigne the nature
of his connection with the emperor as
follows: "When the emperor said,
'All for France,' I served with enthusi

served with obedience; but when he
said, T without France, I felt tho ne
