Dame Fashion tells us what we shall eat
Dame Fashion tells us what we shall eat
as well as what we shall wear. Sandwiches
are now In fashion. They are made of dainty
pieces of bread cut Into many forms and
filled with' highly seasoned pastes, and do
not resemble the slices of bread with ham
or beef between which Montagu, fourth earl
of Sandwich, ordered to be prepared and
brought to him, and to which he gave his
name. At many of the fashionable luncheons
a different kind of sandwich Is served with
each course, from the tiny half-circles of
brown bread with the oysters to the dainty
cheese sandwiches that accompany the naiad.
Sandwiches may be made of white, brown,
or graham bread. The bread should be at
least twelve hours old, and close grained.
Spread each slice lightly and evenly with
butter or mayonnaise dressing, as may be
required, before cutting from the loaf. Lay
the slice on a flat surface to be spread with
the sandwich mixture; over this place an-
other spread slice of bread, and press them
together with a broad-bladed knife. They
may be cut into various shapes, the square,
triangular or diamond form being the most in
use. Round sandwiches are made by using
a large-sized biscuit cutter. Slices cut Into
squares large enough to roll make another
To make chicken sandwiches chop the white
meat of cold boiled chicken very fine, and
mix with It enough highly seasoned mayon
naise to make a paste. Add to this a few
chepped olives, and spread between buttered
slices of bread. Another chicken filling Is
made by chopping the chicken fine with half
as many blanched almonds as you have meat.
Season with salt and a dash of cayenne pep- |
per. Moisten with a little sweet cream until
It Is thin enough to spread nicely. This is
excellent on brown bread.
For celery sandwiches, boll two eggs fifteen
minutes, throw them into cold water, remove
the shells, and rub them through a coarse
selve. Add to them a small cup of finely
chopped celery and enough mayonnaise dress-
ing to season It and make a paste. Spread
on buttered bread.
A hearty sandwich that most men are fond
of Is made thus: Chop very fine cold rare
roast beef, and to one cupful of meat add
one-fourth of a teaspoonful of salt, one tea-
spoonful of tomato catsup, and the same
amount of Worcestershire sauce and of melted
butter. Stir until well blended, and spread
on thin slices of bread. Or thus: To half a
cupful of thick mayonnaise add two spoonfuls J
of whipped cream, a dessertspoonful of grated j
horseradish and two of chopped cucumber, j
Spread the bread with this mixture and then |
with a thin layer of finely chopped rare beef,
and cover with more dressing and bread.
An appetizing and favorite sandwich is made
of lettuce leaves. Cut the bread very thin and
stamp round with a biscuit cutter; spread
thickly with mayonnaise dressing, and lay
white crisp lettuce leaves on the dressing be-
tween the slices, letting the lettuce come be- j
yond the slices; press the upper piece of j
bread over the lettuce and trim the leaves with
sharp scissors to make them even on all sides.
Water cress may be used ln the same way.
Graham bread is especially good for fish
sandwiches. To make a sardine sandwich, j
take three sardines and remove the skin and
bones. Put them in a bowl with one teaspoon
ful of anchovy paste, the yolks of three boiled
eggs, two tablespoonfuls of olive oil and the
juice of half a lemon. With the back of a
spoon rub this mixture to a paste and spread
on butter.
For caviare sandwiches take a small box of
caviare, turn it into a shallow dish and beat
Into It alternately, a little at a time, lemon
juice and olive oil, and stir until you have a
thick, white paste. Spread It thickly upon
bread. Over this scatter some finely chopped
A sausage sandwich is worth trying. Take
the email ink sausages, split them lengthwise
and broil on each side. When they become cool
cover buttered bread with delicate lettuce
leaves and lay the sausage upon them; then
the thinnest possible slices of cucumber pick-
les, and lastly a slice of buttered bread. Cut
them into small squares.
Delicious sandwiches may be made with one
cup of English walnut meats chopped very
fine and mixed with enough Philadelphia
ci earn cheese to make a paste. Add a little
salt and spread on very thin bread.
Hot cheese sandwiches always meet with a
hearty welcome, particularly from men, for a
Sunday night lunch. To prepare them slice
the bread very thin and cut it round with a
huge-sized biscuit cutter. Put a thick layer
of grated cheese between the two circles of
bread, sprinkle the cheese with salt and ca
yenne pepper and press the circles of bread to-
gether. Fry them ln a spider In equal parts
of hot lard and butter. Brown them on each
elds and serve very hot.
Raisin sandwiches are excellent to serve
with lemonade. With a sharp pair of scissors
cut large raisins in two, . lengthwise, and re
move the seeds. Lay the fruit closely together
between thin buttered bread and cut into fancy
Another sandwich to serve with punch or
lemonade is made of candled cherries chopped
fine and moistened with a litle wine. Spread
the mixture between water thin biscuits.
Choped olives mixed with a litle mayonnaise
dressing are a popular filling for sandwiches at
6 o'clock teas, as well as brown or white
bread cut very thin, and buttered and spread
with almonds, walnuts, or pecan nut meats
pounded to a paste with a little salt.
It may well be said of sandwiches that their
Dame is legion.
There are screens and screens. They are
used in the sleeping or sick room to shield
from draughts, in the kitchen and living
room to shut away unlovely objects, and in
the library and drawing room to shield the
eyes and face from too strong light or heat.
Once used Its usefulness is admitted, and is
made as ornamental as the maker's taste and
purse admits.
The screen frame, of any preferred style,
may be bought unmounted of a furniture
dealer and panels be added to suit oneself. j
The common, folding screen of two or three
leaves, reaching from the floor up to a height
of say four feet, or even more, is a favorite
kind for bedroom and kitchen use. Common
denim makes a useful panel material. It
may be secured to the frame with brass-
headed nails. The frame, if unfinished, may
be stained and varnished or given two coats
of enamel paint. . Black is a good color, as it j
serves to set off the panels and the nails used '■
to finish it. - White enamel paint will, how- j
ever, be better liked for the bedroom. Bur- |
laps has taken on a new character recently: I
it comes now in designs of chrysanthemums, j
fleur-de-lis, storks, dragons, and so forth,
on dull blue, red or green grounds. The goods !
Is really quite artistic, and being inexpensive, !
is very suitable for screen panels. The bur- i
laps then may be used for one side of the '
screen panel, while the reverse may be coy- !
ered with plain gray linen bearing bands of
leather studded with star-headed brass nails; I
or, the linen may bear some appropriate I
motto in straggling letters painted with sepia
relieved by gold; or, better yet, embroidered
In outline stitch with one of the heavier
Asiatic silks— medieval twisted embroidery
lor rope silk would do. Black or brown re-
lieved by pale blue would look well on gray
ground. The Louis XIV. screen is something
eles*qint and suitable for the drawing room.
It is generally small and works on a pivot lii
a mahogany frame. The panel may be paint-
ed on satin, embroidered with gold and silver
thread in conventional designs, (*} bear genre
figures daintily wrought In Asiatic silks;
fllo floss is the best. This screen should be
finished with bullion fringe aud cord and tas
sels. ,
Other narlor screens have white enamel
frames filled in with white linen, embroid
ered: of darker frames one of polished oak
would be very nice, having a leather panel
decorated with burnt or poker painting.
How io Make n Room Invitlnsr.
How to Make a Room Inviting-.
I have seen very ugly rooms on which peo-
I have seen very ugly rooms on which peo
ple had spent heaps of money, and there are
lovely ones which have cost their owners very
little beyond good taste and the exercise of
common sense and care. In the first place.
„ cleanliness In a room is In Itself a great
beauty. Make war oh every bit of dust, every
cobweb, every speck and stain. A perfectly
clean room, although quite bare of ornament. j
Is Inviting, and when Its owner puts ln her
little Individual touches, her books on a
hanging shelf, which her brother ] can make
for her, or which she can buy for 40 or 60
cents, her favorite engravings, cut from Illus
trated papers if she chooses and simply tacked
on the wall, her pot of primroses on the win
dow sill, her toilet table draped with white
net over pink Silesia, her plain scrim curtains
at the window tied back with bits of ribbon,
the room will be dainty and pretty enough
to please the most fastidious. If you have not
much to do with, manage with what you have,
Is a good rule for girls to follow. *
A cat pet Is by no means a necessity In any
sleeping room. In fact, many people prefer
a stained or painted floor, with a rug, which
may be easily lifted and shaken. A small
wooden rocking chair, a table or stand for a
candlestick, a two-leaved screen, which you
can make yourself, and a little rack over your
washstand for your towels, and then, with a
nicely made bed. the room will be complete.
S One's own room Is so dear to every girl that
Ido not, wonder she prizes It. One must have
hours when it Is a pleasure to be alone. One
likes to be by herself at times, to think and
read and plan. After a little space of soli
tude we go back to others rested and cheered.
Where sisters share the same apartment, each
should have her corner, divided from the oth-
; er part of the room either by curtains or by
j screens, so that when they prefer to be alone
1 they may be so. In some schools which I
: have known there are twenty minutes or half-
J hour intervals during the day, when every
; pupil is required to be by herself, and. In
! home life, girls who can should try to adopt
; a similar rule.
i Don't Allow the Youngsters to Waste
Their Pennies for Candy.
Nothing more thoroughly delights
Nothing more thoroughly delights
j the heart of a child than the gift of
] our smallest piece of national money,
1 but It usually burns a very large hole
i in the pocket until it is spent for some
j indigestible morsel to torture the deli
j cate little stomach.
The old proverb, "Penny wise, pound
foolish," should be made to read, "Pen
\ ny foolish, pound foolish," in. these days
i when every child, no matter in what
walk of life, has his constant supply
of pennies to do with what he will.
Living in a -large city and having the
opportunity of watching these little
tots in the various classes of society,
; we know whereof we speak, and sum
! mer sojournings have led us to believe
I that the unwise giving of pennies to
: the little folks is as general among the
j country people as those of the city,
■ and the habit of spending them for
candy is the same.
Mother, take notice! Give Johnny a
penny for some little service he has
performed for you. How quickly will
; he scamper to the nearest place where
: candy is obtainable, and how rapidly
will he devour the bit of terra alba
adulterated with sugar and decorated
j with paint that he obtains with his
! "legal tender." There may be model
j children who will not buy candy when
they have pennies, but they are few
and far between.
Children of intelligent parents are
often forbidden many nutritious arti
cles of diet, such as butter and various
meats, for some fancied cause, but who
are allowed pennies without limit, and
are not restricted upon the spending of
I the same; and it is always candy, can-
dy, candy that they buy, to the end of
the chapter. Wo see the doctor's car-
riage before the various doors; we see
decayed teeth in the little mouths-
teeth that should be white and sound
until they drop out to make room for
the big new ones. What is worse we
see so much money thoughtlessly wast
ed, and the bad habit of careless spend
ing encouraged. It is not only among
those who can spare it that the money
is thus thrown away, for in the city
no neighborhood is so poor but that
the candy store is there, and in rags
and dirt the children flock with the
pennies, the value of which no one
teaches them, and Which are a robbery
to. the household comfort.
In a recent "festival" two small spe
cimens of boyhood took their hoard of
money which they had collected for the
occasion. They could . easily have
chosen some game or toy that would
have afforded them amusement for a
long time, but their treasured pennies
amounting to about 25 cents each'
quickly disappeared for candy, and
they brought nothing home with them
but a bad taste in their mouths and
the cheerful possibility of a wakeful
night. A misguided relative gave one
of them 20 cents to angle in the manu
factured "fish pond" for himself and
the small boy. Small boy returned
with a tin match safe.
"What did you do with the othen ten
cents?' the misguided relative in-
'Oh, I only fished for you; I spent
my ten cents for candy," replied" the
young schemer? ■ ■■-• .
The proper value of money Is an im
portant part of a child's education, and
is a subject to which the attention of
mothers is very seldom called. To
hoard for its own sake, for mere mon
ey-getting, is not the proper motive,
but to save the little sums .that are
earned or received as gifts that some
desired object may be purchased, will
teach not only thrift and self-denial
but the habit of working with an end
in view, and make living not only a
mere matter of daily pleasure, but of
useful endeavor. It is a good plan to
have a small bank for the little ones
which they cannot open, and encourage
them to collect all their pennies in this
until a certain time, when the bank
is to be opened, the money counted and
some greatly desired object purchased.
The Fair Cashier's Experience
of a Young Actor.
£h!, fair metroPolitan cashier has
The fair metropolitan cashier has
added a new factor to her growing val
ation which will not prove so desirable
a wile in the eyes of the employer as
the honesty and efficiency which have
won for her almost a monopoly in the
business. It is the result of the mi
crobe craze, and is nothing less than
washing all the money she handles
and charging her employer overtime'
too. '
The discoverer of this new wav to en
hance her usefulness and cost is An
nie Nesmyth, the money taker of a biff
down-town hotel. Miss . Nesmyth
serves at night mostly, and ' while less
money comes in then than in the day
she- is generally kept busy enough!
he money, is often very dirty, and to
the last degree repulsive to handle
Now the cashier is a trained nurse
resting from her arduous profes
sional labors. After a sick spell from
handling the soiled currency she con
cluded to resign. She was persuaded
not to by an increase of salary and
permission to wash the money So
every night sees a soup plate of am
monia water at her elbow, into which
each note, as it arrives, is dropped
It gets a quick bath, and is then laid
out on a- piece of flannel to dry as
tenderly as if it were her best piece of
jewelry. The water has to be changed
two or three times in a night.
The cashier. recently. had an offer of
another similar job. Being asked what
salary she wanted, she mentioned her
usual figure, with the proviso that it
must be so much more "if : there's
money to wash."
"Money to wash?" said the astonish
ed would-be employer.'.' Why, I haven't
enough for my hides (he is a leather
and tallow dealer) much less to wash.".
"You see," she said, calmly, '-Your
business is dirty, and it's likely your
money will be. I won't wash another
fellow's money In ammonia water
it's bad for the hands and head
without a consideration in my salary
Different if it were my money!"
She says she's ■ "passing the tip
along," and soon all merchants in a
business that calls for an unusual fort
itude in the olfactory and perceptive
nerves will have to pay extra salaries
if they wish to retain steady and effi
cient help.

A Corner Medicine Case.
From Womankind.
From Womankind. ; \
Every woman has her own collection of
simple and useful remedies. These vials or
tiny boxes are not ornamental to the toilet
stand, and are inconvenient to reach often-'
times. If placed underneath or in drawers.
A little corner cabinet with . shelves con
cealed by a dainty silk curtain is almost in
dispensable in a bedroom. Eighteen or twen
ty Inches may be devoted to shelves with a
railing across the top and a back finish like
the spokes and tire of a wheel. A smaller
triangular shelf or two beneath the curtained
portion may, In bracket style, give support
to a pretty vase or other bit of bric-a
The light wood frame enameled In white,
the knobs, etc., touched with gold, together
with the silken curtains and a few pieces of
bric-a-brac, form a thing of beauty a3 well
as of convenience.
Lemons for the Lungs.
Lemons are an excellent remedy In pulmon
ary diseases. When used for lung trouble
from six to nine a day should be used. More
juice Is obtained from lemons by boiling
them. Put the lemon in cold water and
bring slowly to a boil. Boil -slowly until
they begin to soften; remove from the water
and when cold. enough to handle squeeze un
til the juice is extracted, strain and add
enough loaf or crushed sugar to make it
palatable, being careful not to make it too
sweet. Add about twice as much water as
there is juice. This preparation may be
made every morning, or enough may be pre
pared one day to last three or four days, but
It must be kept in a cool place.
A Leaf Dinner.
When flowers are costly a pretty dinner ta
ble decoration may be had by using smilax,
laurel or asparagus vine made Into wreaths
and tied with violet, scarlet or pink satin
ribbon. These wreaths may be placed at the
four corners of the table, inside the covers,
or laid around candelabra placed in the cen
ter, at the corners or at each end. Or they
may be used at two corners, diagonally, with
vases of suitable flowers, violets or carna
tions, in two other corners. If violet ribbon
is used have the dishes for bonbons filled
with crystallized violets and mint leaves; If
pink, rose petals and mint leaves. Candles
with white shades are prettier with violet and
green than those of a color, as the light
through a violet or green is not becoming.
A Pretty Fashion.
A pretty fashion which has the merit of
showing off to perfection the beauty of a
lace flounce— the bertha— is revived again,
and extensively employed on evening gowns.
Point d'Alencon, and perhaps a dozen yards
of five-inch lace edge of the same pattern,
make an exquisite bertha.
Her bonnet's just the sweetest thing,
It flouts the world as she goes by,
It's tied down by the sweetest string. .
I'd like to be that string, but, "My!"
The bonnet might not be the thing
So sweet, if I should be the string.
Her bonnet's just the sweetest thing,
It tips a bit above her eye.
The birds— the birds begin to sing;
They want to sing as she goes by;
They think It's daybreak, and "Oh my!"
It's just because she's passing by.
Her bonnet's just the sweetest thing, \'<y
It roofs In just the sweetest hair.
And eyes and mouth. The birds will sing;
They thing it's spring when she Is there.
It's just because she is passing by.
I want that bonnet, but, "Oh my!"
"White rose of roses!" Why be shy?
About the sweetest bonnet's string
The lads, the lads will sigh and sigh—
For God's white rose that makes it spring
And daybreak for the birds and I
Just want that bonnet but, "Oh my!"
When Angelina graces
My presence with a smile,
My heart's removed from traces
Of every sort of guile.
I feel myself uplifted
From sordldness and sin.
To heavens above I've drifted.
All purity within.
And in such pleasant places
I linger for awhile:
When Angelina graces "
My presence with her smile.
Dainty as a sunbeam, royal as a rose,
How the out-door maiden in her beauty
glows ! •
Eyes like morning dewdrops; cheeks like
evening fire;
Voice like liquid rapture of the sunrise choir.
Round of limb, and supple— strength allied
with grace;
Sparkle of health's rubles in her winsome
How she seems to queen it over all the land
With the witching magic of her slender "hand!
Juno ln her chalrot drawn by peacocks gay;
Aphrodite rising cloudlike from the spray-
Goddesses outrivaled! Now the poets kneel
To the charm of beauty pedalling a wheel.
Womanhood supernal— at Its height-
Hall the out-door maiden, vision of delight!
Spin and flash and glitter, steed of burnished
thews ;
Thus through woman's life-blood God the race

CHICAGO, 'ApriI 4.— Rumors of crop dam-
CHICAGO, April 4.— Rumors of crop dam-
ages caused wheat to close strong with an
advance for the day of l%c in the May future
and 1%©1% for July. Corn and oats advanced
%@%c respectively. Provisions closed at
about the same price as on Thursday. After
the grst hour the wheat market did a good
business. May opened unchanged at 63% c. The
market advanced to 64%@64%c, changed
some and closed as stated, at top figures.
The firm tone to start was due In the meas
ure to the steady tone of private cables from
Liverpool, and the more moderate weekly
Argentine shipments. The report of the In-
diana bureau of statistics, making the area
in that state 90.4 per cent, and the condition
70.9 per cent, was also a strengthening In-
fluence. On the other hand the exports did
not prove bullish. The weather, too, was
clear and mild In most sections, and the
weather bureau predicted fair and warmer
conditions with variable winds. Northwest-
crn receipts were . larger than the same day
last week. There were reports at hand re-
garding the area sown in Kansas, making
the same the smallest since 1890. No new
features were discernable in corn, and the
advance of 3-16 cm the price, was in conse
quence of the advance in wheat. May opened
unchanged at 29% c, and closed with sellers
at 29% c. The day's range was from 29%©
29% c. The market for oats was fairly active
and a firmer feeling prevailed. May opened
unchanged at 19% c, sold at 19% c. and closed
with 19% c bid. Provisions started weak and
so continued for over an hour. Later, pork
recovered all it lost earlier in the day, and
lard and ribs In the end were only 2%@5c low-
er than they closed on Thursday.. Estimates:
Wheat, 10 cars; corn, 175 cars; oats, 155 cars;

be toward the bull side of the market from
start to finish, and while there was no great
advance the market was so strong that. there
appeared at times to be a very respectable
bull movement on. There Is still an active
demand for cash wheat and premiums estab

were in, were well maintained.

NEW YORK, April 4.— The resumption of

and advancing market. The distribution of
business was Indifferent, but important gains
were scored in many instances. The indus
trials attracted the most attention, with To
bacco especially noteworthy and erratic fluc
tuations. Sugar gained a point on pool buy
ing. The improved outlook In the Iron and
steel trade was reflected in a gain of 2 per
cent in Tennessee Coal, and under similar in
fluences Colorado Fuel rose 1, and Illinois
Steel 2%c. Metropolitan Traction was un
favorably affected by rumors of an Impending
strike on the system, and yielded 2% per cent
on liquidation. Alton & Terre Haute ad
vanced 2% per cent on the news of the
ratification by Its shareholders of a lease to
the Illinois Central for ninety-nine years.
The movement in the grangers and other lead
ing shares were confined to fractions, - with
gains general. The closing was strong and
at the best figures of the day.

Statement for the Week Unimpor-
tant in Its General Features.
NEW YORK, April The Financier says:
The statement of the banks for the week
is unimportant in its general features, the
operations of the week being shown in the
decrease in the reserve, leaving the excess
cash in banks at $17,005,975,' as against $13,
- for the same week last year. The
excess reserve touched Its lowest point, $13,
- on March 30, 1895, and from that
time began to increase, standing four weeks
later at $25,270,675. But during that time
the Imports of gold were in excess of ex-
ports, and the movement from Europe dur
ing the next month, in May, amounted In
the aggregate to $3,308,869. The Interior
movement at the same time was heavy, the
reserve of the New York banks standing
on May 25, 1895, at $40,005,150. This show-
ing is interesting, in view of the present
situation, when the total reserve of the
banks is decreasing and a "resumption of
gold exports is announced to begin next Sun
day by one firm. The reserves of many of
the New York banks are already down to
the required limit, and the outlook does not
seem to favor easier rates at present.
Diamond Match Stock Gave Chicago
Men a Good Time.
CHICAGO, April 4.— The Chicago stock ex
change saw as exciting a half hour today as
ever it witnessed in Its history. Emphasis
was lent to the old bull precept, never sell
what you do not. own. Diamond Match fur
nished the sensation. In a few moments it
Jumped 14 points, amid tremendous excite-
ment. Shorts were being run to cover. The
first sale of the stock was of three shares
at 163. Then the excitement broke loose.
Bedlam reigned, and the first sale In the
account was at 170, an advance of 7 points i
over tho close of yesterday. The market
advanced to 177%, and then broke to 168. This
ended the flurry. The fluctuations would in
dictate tremendous trading, but such was not
the case, only about 2,000 shares changing
hands at that time.

Barrett & Zimmerman's report. Horses-*
Several large consignments of farm stock,
general . purpose horses and heavy . draft
horses received Saturday morning. The con
signment shippers succeeded in closing out
their holdings at the auction at prices that
were generally satisfactory to them. Some
fine drivers and well-bred trotting horses
were among the offerings, and sold at fair
prices. The past week has been a very busy. rt
one in the horse . market. Prices received ,"V
- the early part of the week were lower '
than the average, but within the last few
days there has been a decided turn for the
better, and we are looking forward to: heavy >-
receipts, an increasing business, with -ad ■>-■
