Now, a hook marker may vary from a

through brightly colored atrocities "f
pink and bloc combinations down to
really artistic strips of hand decorated

the grasp of the woman who wishes
to please a book lover.

lines at the side of any desired length
and square off the bottom.

New Decorations For the Den.
It usually is a woman who is respon
sible for the adornment of the den in
which her husband or brother smokes
and reads, and this often accounts for
queer decorative treatment of rooms
popuarly supposed to be peculiarly sa
cred to men. One young woman, how
ever, in her brother's absence on a
long business trip has completed a
scheme of decoration for his den
■which she is certain will meet with
his approval. He is an inveterate ciga
rette smoker. She obtained from her
men friends and by purchases more
than 200 empty boxes which had con
tained that many varieties of citra
rettes. These she tacked around the
walls of the room, making a sort of
frieze above the picture molding, alter
nating the rod. green and other colors
of the boxes in a manner that produces
a striking color effect, especially when
the room is lighted. Incidentally her
acquirement of the boxes led her into
all sorts of queer little cigar establish

different brands of cigarettes are
smoked than In any other section of
A Good Turkey Soup.

onion hi a tablespoonfol of butter, add
a tablespoont'ul of flour and when that
is brown turn In a small carrot, a slice
of turnip and a stalk of celery that
have been cut into small pieces. Put
in the bones of a cold roast or boiled
turkey, cover and simmer for three
Lours. Then take out the bones and
strain the soup. There should be at
least two quarts. Add four tablespooa
fuls of rice that has cooked for fifteen
minutes: cook for ten minutes, season
with salt, pepper and a little lemon
juice and serve. A little Worcester
shire sauce or catchup may be added.
For Sour Milk.
Keep a covered quart preserve jar in
the pantry for sour milk. It is always
fine for griddlecakes. Never forget the
principle, one even teaspoonful soda to
a cup of sour milk.
Always keep this proportion in mind
and you can cook as well with sour
milk as your mother or grandmother

The first bituminous coal mined in
the United States, states the United
States geological survey, was taken
from what is usually termed the Rich
mond basin, a small area in the south
eastern portion of Virginia, near the
city of Richmond. This basin is situ
ated on the eastern margin of the
Piedmont plateau, thirteen miles above
tidewater, on the James river. It lies
iv Goocliland. ilenrico, Powhatan and
Chesterfield counties. The coal beds
are much distorted, and the coal is of
rather low grade when compared with
that from other districts with which
it has to come into competition. The
occurrence of coal was known in the
Richmond basin as early as 1700, and
in 17SU shipments were made to some
of the northern states. At present
what little coal is produced in this
field is for local consumption only.—
Movement of Icebergs.
In the investigation of the currents
round the coast of Newfoundland it
has been observed that there is at
times a wide difference in the direction
of the drift of icebergs and that of the
flat or pan ice, which, having no great
depth, is governed in its motions by
the surface currents and the winds,
whereas the icebergs, the larger parts
of which are submerged to a great
depth, follow only the movement of
the ocean water as a whole and are
uninfluenced by the winds. In conse
quence a huge berg may often be
seen majestically maintaining its slow
advance in opposition to the wind and
across tbe general motion of the fields
of flat ice surrouuding it. The sealers
often take advantage of this fact by
mooring their vessels to an iceberg
in order to prevent a drift to leeward.

The kangaroo is able to jump clear
over a horse. As the game is bagged
