might light on some information not
intended for her. The next day at 12
o'clock she appeared at the legation.

shall be happy to advise you presently
concerning your claim."
He ushered her into a cozy room in
the center of which stood a table with
writing materials and papers scattered
about. Mmine. Berthalow, being alone
in the room, made a hurried examina
tion of the papers. One of them bore
evidence of having Just been written.
It was marked to be sent by cable to
the secretary of state at Washington.
The lady eagerly seized it and ran her
eye over it. There was a jumble of
words the meaning of which was un
intelligible to her, but she noticed scat
tered throughout the dispatch the word
"woman." It occurred five times. She
had all the time she needed for the ex
amination-indeed, more than she
wished, for she was anxious to get
away that she might impart the Infor
mation to her husband that there was
to be war.
Presently Hornby came in and in
formed her that be was ready to listen
to the matter of her claim. She told

BEST OF CLOTHES DRYERS
It Spreads Out Lake a Fan or Folds
Up Like a Bundle of
A clothes dryer that will be a boon
to flat dwellers has been designed by
a New York man, and is shown in the
illustration. It is adapted to extend
from a window or balcony, and when
not In use can be folded up into such
a small compass as to be scarcely
noticeable. A bar with a groove In It
is hinged to the window sill or porch
post and held in horizontal positimn
by a wire or cord fastened above it.
In the groove slides a hub, which has
spokes extending from it, and cords
connect these hubs, like the cross sec
tions of a spider's web. Indeed, the
dryer resembles a huge spider's web
wbhen extended. As will be noticed
there Is ample space to hang a large
wash on this dryer, which can be
drawn in to a point where it is easy
to reach and the clothes put on.
When out of use the hubs and sup
porting rod can all be drawn Into
parallel position with each other and
the whole drawn back against the
post, like a bundle of sticks.
The materials required for thi
characteristic German holiday cake
are one pound of pulverized sugar,
four eggs, one pound flour, one lemoa
rind grated, and anise seed. Beat the
eggs and sugar together until feath
ery. It will take about one hour. Add
the grated lemon peel and sifted flour,
mix all together and roll out on the
molding board until only one-eighth of
an inch in thickness. Have In readl
ness the small square wooden forms
with designs of swans, flowers, etc.,
stamped upon them.
Cut this dough Into squares, dust the
forms with flour and put the squares
into them, so the design will become
imprinted on the dough. Remove care
fully from the forms and place on nap
kins powdered with flour, over night,
to dry. Then lay on buttered tas
strewn with anise seed and bake in a
coolish oven until about the color of
the ordinary soda cracker. If these
are kept In a stone crock the spring
erle will remain soft.
Hints for the Table.
For the very delicious dish of dev
lied clams prepare a cupful of chopped
elams gnd season them with cayenne,
salit and the Juice of a lemon. Mix
them to a soft batterlike consistency
with the yolks of two eggs and some
powdered crackers. Put the mixture
Into little ramekins, broad scalloped
shells, or into tiny cups,. spread the
surface with soft butter, and bake un
til well browned. For a change the,
mixture may be spread over crisp
crackers, and then browned In the
Steep two tablespoonfuls of flax
seed In one quart of hot water for ten
minutes. Stir In and add the Juliee
of three lemons, a large cupful of
sugar and a wineglassful of wine.
Drink elth-r hot or cold. This Jg

Stories of "Old Q."
The "wickedness" of "Old Q." (the
Duke of Que,.nsberry) has passed into
a proverb, but two tales of his other
traits may be quoted from Mrs. Jer
rold's "The Beaux and the I)andles."
One is that he "'paid a dlo-tor to keep
him well, deducting fees when he was
ill, and thus when he titled left his phy
sician his creditor for £10,.3, and the
other that "there wa:s a popular prejtu
dice against drinking milk in London

that the duke bathed each morning in
milk. which was subsequently sold to
