In olden times there was a variety of
nice little cakes made of email pieces of
fine pastry and garnished with jelly,
jams or sweetened creams whipped to a
stiff froth and flavored. The well known
"wells of Cupid," as they were known
in those sentimental days, were nothing
mere than tiny flat cakes r.f pastry with
a raised ring 3? pastry laid on them, the
eavity in the senter being filled with
jelly or jam of some bright color.
These "wells" are sometimes made
of cold boiled plum pudding, gurnisbed
with a creamy hard brandy sauce, and
tbey are then served at the holiday sea
sen and known as "wells of NccL" Al
most any plain cooky dnngh may te
rolled out and cut up into circles and
rings of equal sire, and have a ring laid
on every circle and the cakes baked.
The cavity in the renter may be filled
with bright red rurrant jelly.
Those dainty littlecnkosenllcd "mar
igolds" may be made of puff pasto or
any pastry or cake barrier that can be
rolled out. Tbey are especially nice
made of puff pastry glazed with sugar
and baked a golden hue.
Cnt out 20 circles of paltry with a
fluted cutter about two inches in diam
eter. Then stamp out an equal number
of rings about three-quarters of an inch
in diameter. Put these tiny rings in the
center cf the l;:rge circles and stick
pieces of blanched nnd shredded almonds
urouud the centerpieces. Dredge these
cakes with sngar nnd bake them in n
quick oven for about ten minutes, or
until they are a nice golden brown.
Arrni'go little strips f.f red rurrant

la the 8dq Burning; Vpf
Thousands of carious and ingenions
theories have been advanced to account
for the effect thi.t the sun, although he
has whirled bis burning disk across the
heavens for untold ages, continues tc
burn wit hoc t being consumed or his
bulk being lessened in the least. Some
of our most learned astronomers believe,
or pretend to believe, that the great orb
is a ball of gas, but even a great globe
of gas would be consumed to its utmost
atom in the course of a few thousand
years. Others say that fires are kept up
by the burning of the remains of wrecked
worlds wbich are constantly falling in
to its mysterious, burning depths. But
even this seems far frum probable, and
those who take an opposite view declare
that it is a monstrously absurd conclu
sion. In summing up his opinion on the
last conclusion one of the most eminent
astronomers of the day has figured that
a mountain range consisting of 176
cubic miles could fall into the sun and
yet not furnish fue l enough to keep np
the present rate of heat for a single stc
ond, and that a mass equal to our earth
would only furnish heat for 83 years. If
these rouclnsicns are correct, we may
well ask, Of what wonderful, inde
