SHORT ESSAYS ON TRIFLES.
But the Trifles arc Important to the Care
Here are a few of the addod touches that
make the difference between commonplace
and ideal housekeeping:
When you have strained your plain boiled
potatoes take them at onco to the open door
or window and give them a vigorous shaking
in the draught. They will become white and
mealy. Try it once and you will do it always,
so great is the improvement.
Every good housekeeper browns and rolls
or grates her stale bread, thus having it in
readiness for scallops or frying meats, fish,
croquettes. If, after being rolled, it is put
through the flour sieve tho additional fine
ness will amply repay the trouble.
I sat one morning in the bright, clean
kitchen of a lumber camp watching the" cook
make bread. After kneading tho bread he
took enough for a loaf and drew it out ugain
and again, rolling it up each time as ho
would" puff paste. Then he set it aside to
rise, repeating the process belore putting it
in the pans. This, he said, was the secret of
white and flaky bread.
Do you wish to make gruel for a sick friend?
Take corn meal and silt it into a quart of
boiling water, stirring it until It is of the con
sistency of cream. Add salt to flavor and let
it simmer for half an hour or longer; then
run it through a fine sieve. Have in a bowl
a little cream or rich milk. Pour your boil
ing gruel into it and you have a drink u sick
person ought to relish.
A little soap eases wonderfully tho labor of
cleaning a stove. Bub a flannel rag on the
eoap, dip into ordinary stove blacking, and
apply to the stove; finish with a dry cloth.
The work will be done quickly and will last
much longer than without the'soap.
If you have many short-stemmed flowers to
arrange it is well to fill a low dish with damp
moss, then with a sharp stick dibble holes in
the moss and insert the stems. When the
flowers have faded the moss may be dried and
used again. Tansies show to better advan
tage in this way than in any other.
Encouragement to Matrimony.
A short time since the British treasury ap
pointed a new class of female clerks, the
women typists, ranking between the sorters
and telegraphists and the lady clerks. Among
the regulations contained in the treasury
minute of March 17, 1894, a paragraph headed
'marriage" appears. This regulation states
that a gratuity not exceeding one month's
salary for every year of service may be
granted to an officer who leaves to be married
within her mother's (an "imperium in im
perio"), in which she played Tycoon to her
mother's Mikado ruled while her mother but
reigned. Most, at least, of her admirers had
the tact to perceive that they must "make
love to the nurse for the sake of tho child."
while none was quicker to recognize this than
the adroit young barrifeter whom Bell most
It was, indeed, Bell's only but recurring
quarrel with Fred Drow, that ho led her
mother by his attentions to make her
self ridiculous. He pleaded with perfect
truth that he could not throw himself par
tially into any part; and he might with no
less truth have pleaded that this part of
"cavalfero sorTento" was forced upon him
by the lady.
From reading the worka of lady novelists
Mrs. Yernon had almost come to think such a
dangerous admirer a fashionable necessity,
while the admiration itself had become a per
sonal necessity to her Insatiable vanity. The
foolish faded little woman fancied herself
more fascinating than she had been at twenty,
lnce, while her beauty, as she flattered her
self, was unimpaired, her skill in "playing it"
had increased. Under this riduculous delu
sion she sat down her sarcastic husband's
biting comments upon what he called her
-"dance Mlcabre coquetries" to jealousy, and
the shadow lo her visions of fashionable Jn
trigues was the dread of a judicial separation.
She tried hard to pursuade herself that he
was just the unsympathetlo, hard, repcllant.

JUSTUS RATHBONE'S DAUGHTERS
They Lead a Quiet. Lut Happy Life in Old
Anybody In Alexandria can tell whero tho
daughters of Justus Itathbono, founder of tho
order of the Knights of Pythias, live.
Village-wise, they will not givoyou thostreot
and number, but will say It is tho first double
brick house south of King street on Patrick
and some neighbor will point out which sitlo
is their homo. It Is No. Ill South Patrick
street, tho homo of Charles G. Smith, and
they have been living there over sinco their
father died from the effects of a curbunclo,
at Lima, Ohio, five years ago.
"It feels like home," haid Miss Lucotta,
"and It is just as If father hud died here. Ho
brought us to these friends just before his
death and wo have remained hero since. Tho
Knights, of Pythias pay us ?S0 a month each
and the allowance must bo renewed at each
biennial grand lodge meeting. When it was
proposed to make" this provision just after
our father's death, four years ago, it did not
seem advisable to our friends to do it. but at
tho meeting, two years ago. tho suggestiou
was favorably received and the appropriation
made. I think the proposal waa probably
first made by ox-Mayor Stausbury .T. Willey,
of Wilmington, Del.,"though a Mr. Douglas,
of Washington, also interested himself in it.
"It was Mr. Willey, who was then in chnrgo
of the order's funds, to whom it fell to euro
for us at our father's funeral and he was so
thoughtful and good. Ho told us when wo
needed a friend any day to call on him, and
he said it in such n way that wo should feel
perfectly free to do so. Pooplo say those
things, you know, sometimes aud don't mean
it at all. But ho took us to the bank and in
troduced us and bbowed us about making
checks and everything so necessary to tell
two Inexperienced girls. Somo have blamed
Mr. Willey in connection with a loss of nionoy
to the Knights by depositing in his brother-in-law's
bank, but wo can't think ho was to
blamo at all. He was so good.
"The allowance mado us 13 without any
stipulation that we bhould livo at this place,
or even in Alexandria. It ceases for either of
us. however, should we marry. But what is
most gratifying to us is that tho Knights aro
going to raise a monument to our father's
"I would sooner live in AVashington for
somo reasons," said Miss Sallio. "I was edu
cated in tho public schools there nnd gradu
ated from the high school on O street; so I
havo very many schoolmntes and friends
there. But out relations here aro very pleas
ant, and it is just like home."
The two girls, whose birthdays are long
after the war, are much alike. Luceita S. S.
Bathbone and Sarah Dwight Itathbono aro
their names. Tho first unmod is the elder,
and claims Washington as her native place,
while Sarah was born In Brooklyn.

Forty Hours' Devotion at Trinity.
The forty hours' devotion at Trinity Church,
Georgetown, was begun at lato mass yester
day, with most impressive services. Tho
mass, sung by the choir was Weber's, which
contained somo very excellent numbers for
the soloists. Father Boccofort was the cole
brant, assisted by jFather Becker, deacon,
and Father Tompkins, sub-deacon. A por

this fear and feeling helped Fred to most of
his interviews with Bell. Ho got to know
that If ho called close upon the time when

Mrs. Vernon would havo Bell in the room to
play propriety in caso of a sudden surprise
from Othello. It was Fred's consummate act

and annoyed Bell.
"Oh. Miss Bell, you are growing!" in an
amazed tone; and then, turning to hor
mother, ho added almost remonstrantly
"Whv, she has got her hair up!"
"She would havo it up. and sho goes on
growing," in an aggrieved tone, as though
Bell's willfulness was responsible for this also.
"Sho'll soon bo a young lady," Fred ob
served, looking critically with his head on

OOR FOLLIES EXPOSED,
What a Learned European Thinks of
OVERWORK AND ITS PENALTIES
Interesting Interview in "Which tho Frailties
of Modern Society Are
The whole community has been aroused to
a manifestation of such intense interest in tho
wonderful cures that aro daily oelng per
formed by Dr. It. A. Walker, tho specialist,
that a reporter called at his rooms after office
hours yesterday to seo what manner of man
it was that was creating such a furore. Tho
doctor was found in his laboratory at 1111
Pennsylvania avenuo, where ho has a suite of
apartments handsomely furnished and elab
orately equipped with all modem appliances
for tho diagnosis and treatment of cases. Ho
is a comparatively small mnu in stature.com
pactlv built, with an agn-cablo blouding of
Iraukhess aud dignity in his manner, and. un
like the majority of great scientists, is a man
of most engaging personality.
Ho received tho reporter cordially, nnd
talkod with that freedom and lack of reservo
which Indicates a thorough familiarity with
tho subject under discussion.
"Yes," bo said, in reply to a question from
tho reporter, "I decided" early in my career
as a medical student to become a specialist in
tho treatment of diseases of tho bruin and
nervous system. Why? Because, in tho first
place, I realized that innumerable diseases
commou to humanity owed their origin prim
arily to disturbances of tho nervous system,
nnd in the second placo I was convinced that
there was much lo be learned that was not
at that time known concerning the treatment
of such diseases. I took up the study, becamo
deeply interested in it, made sclontiliu
researches in various countries, pursued my
investigations in all the largo hospitals of
Europe and America, nnd have been re
warded oven beyond my expectations in being
able to ndancu tho causo of science, and to
provide a certain euro for diseases that onco
baffled tho skill of tho most learned physi
ciau.s." "Do you find tint nervous diseases nro
moro common in America than in other coun
tries?" "Infinitely more common. According to
tho most roliablo statistics no less than soven
out of every ten peoplo m the United States
are sufferers from neurasthenia in ono stago
or another. It is a condition of modern ko
oiety, and In tnis country is especially aggra
vated by tho American passion for overwork
nnd thedesiro to accomplish much m a short
simco of time. In the professions as well as
in business life there is tho samo tendency to
strain tho chord of nervous vitality to the
snapping point. "Neurasthenia, or nervous
weakness, like all other diseases, may be he
reditary or acquired. Many individuals aro
put into tho world and havo crowded upon
them the battles of life when they aro so
poorly equipped with nerve force as to bo
almost considered nervous bankrupts. People
go about day after dny complaining of dizzi
ness, nervousness, headache, wakefulness at
night and a sense of fatigue in tho morning,
general lassitudo, montal depression, aud an
indisposition to exertion of any kind, and do
not realize that they aro in a dangerous con
dition. Too often they aro misled by tho
family physician, who is himself unablu to
properly dinguoso their cases. This condi
tion of the uonous system maybe brought
on by overwork, business cares, too constant
application to any pursuit, sudden shocks,
irregular habits, sexual excesses, and a great
variety of causes, and if neglected or aggra
vated is liable to develop hy-teria, hypochon
dria, melancholia, neuralgia in its various
forms, epilepsy, spinal affections, inflam
mation of tho brain, locomotor ataxia,
puralysis, paresis, or any of tho many other
diseases having their origin in disturbances
of tho nervous system. It is of tho greatest
importnnco that such sufferers should bo
properly advised, in order that they may bo
cured before it is too late. I have patients
here every day who hnvo been sufferers for
years, and the only medical advice they had
over received was first, that thoy wre in no
danger, and second, that their cases were in
curable! Think of such blundering stupid
ity!" Dr. Walker is certainly doing a great work,
and those who have submitted their cases to
his treatment are ready and eager to testify to
his wonderful skill. His spneious parlors at
1411 Pennsylvania avenue, adjoining Wil
lard's Hotel, ore admirably adapted for tho
treatment of patients, and thero he is to be
found every day between tho hours of 10 a.
m. and 5 p. m. Ho also makes a feature of
treatment by correspondence, and nnswors
promptly and fully all letters received from
sufferors at a distance. Although his ofllco
hours aro long, Dr. Walker, with a view of
accommodating thoso who cannot conven
iently visit him during thoso hours, makes
special appointments with parties who par
ticuly request it.

"Oh, at her age I was in the nursery."
"I'm glad wo livo in moro prococlous days;
eh. Miss Boll? And how aro we getting on
with our singing?" he asked, in a tone so
grandmotherly that Bell was really relieved
that ho did not pat her on the cheek.
"I should like to hear you sine somothing,"
ho added, going for the piano, opening it,
and taking his favorito song, "Tho Message,"
from hor portfolio.
As Boll had a voice sort as moonlight set
to music, Fred would havo been "all ear" but
for his intense longing to utter his love
which ho whispered to her under tho pretext
of turning tho music leaves. The conse
quence was that both song nnd accompani
ment went to pieces together.
"You'd belter sing something you know,"
her mother snapped viciously in her disap-
E ointment to find that Fred had not as she
ad reckoned on asked Bell to sing in order
to enjoy unobserved a tete-a-tete with her
self. "I can't sing to-day," Bell said, tremu
lously, for her ears were ringing with Fred's
own sweet "Message" nnd her heart beating
to it a passionate accompaniment.
" "I'll play something," sho added, and pro
ceeded to play without music a cold, classical
piece , in order at onco to recover horself
and to got rid of Fred. That young gentle
man had to take the hint and to return to hjs
allegiance to Mrs. Yernon. At ho suulrd him
