provided from day to day. Gradually
outsiders began to come in, and now

One long table occupies the little
dining room, to which one climbs by a
rickety flight of stairs. Every French
man, when he gets up, takes a enp of
coffee and a roll, and at 11 o'clock eats
his real breakfast. This is the meal that
Jime. Begeuy 6erves. and it costs f 1.
The kitchen is right off f the dining
room, and there is no pretense of adorn
ment. Everything is as plain and sim
ple as it can be. excepting the food, and
this is the perfectioa of the gastronomic

from Germany and called "blue label,

A GRIM CEREMONY.
Bow Bnlloona Are Xlade.
Balloons are manufactured of gold
beater's skin, which, though . small toy
ones had been made of it, could not be
produced in sufficient quantities for tho
large balloons until Colonel Templer in
vented and perfected tbe process, which
is briefly as follows:
The gold beater s kin is made np of
quantities of a certain thin animal
membrane (30,000 of these are required
for a balloon of 10,000 cubic feet ca
pacity), which is first freed from all
fatty substances and then soaked in a
solution of glycerin and water. They
are then applied to boards cut in the
form and to the size of the gore of the
balloon required. Others are then super
posed, until a thickness of four layers
has been reached, great care being taken
that no air bubbles remain between the
skins. After this fourth layer a method
of strengthening is resorted to in the
shape of a net manufactured of skin.
After this net two or three more layers
of membranes are applied.
The whole is then allowed to dry, and
a solution of boiled linseed oil is used as
a vawii?h. The fabric is then quite in
dissoluble, and tho membranes cannot
by any possible means be separated from
one another, but sometimes, to render
this homogeneity the more perfect, a so
lution of bichromate of potash is sponged
over the fabric. Pall Mall Magazine.

An Emperor's Death Hastened by
Ilehenralnfr His Own Funeral.
Emperor Charles V of Spain brought
about his death by rehearsing his own
funeral. For the last two years of his
life, after resigning the scepter of Spain
and the Netherlands to his son Philip,
in 15o6, Charles retired to tho monas
tery of Yuste. in Estremadnra, and
there lived a cloister life in close inter
course with the monks, devoting much
time to religious exercises. During this
period, prompted it may be by the ex
ample of Cardinal de la Marck. who
for several years before bis death, in
1523. had annually rehearsed his own
obsequies, the emperor, in the summer
of looS, formed the resolution to cele
brate his own funeral before bo died.
Accordingly, on Aug. 80 of that year,
the grim farce was carried ont with the
most elaborate ceremonial. The imperial
domestics marched with black tapers in
their bands, and the emperor, clad in
sable weeds, himself followed, wearing
his hhrond. While the solemn mass for
the dead was sung before the high altar
in the cathedral Charles gave up his ta
per to the priest, typifying thereby his
resignation of life, and was solemnly
laid in his coffin. The ceremony closed
with sprinkling holy water on his body ;
then, all the attendants retiring, the
doors were shut, and Charles roe from
his narrow bed and withdrew to bis pri
The damping of the graveclothes in
duced a chill, which, aided no doubt by
the mental depression caused by the
grewsome ceremony, induced a fever
which ended in his death three weeks
later, on the 21st of September, 1588.
Beautiful Viennese Women.
Vienna, the capital of Austria, is
chiefly noted for producing three things
coffee, music and women. The word
"jolly" describes the temper of the
Viennese woman most aptly. She lives
only for today and lets the morrow take
care of itself. She is as good a house
keeper as her German sister, but not
quite so particular. She is quite as eco
nomical, but dresses herself more artis
tically. She is just ns good a mother,
but a more loving wife. She is some
what nervous, and the quarrel with her
husband is as regular as the amen in
her prayer. The truest and prettiest
type of the beautiful Viennese woman
is that which comes from the south. In
common with the majority of her Euro
pean sisters, the Viennese makes mar
riage her goal, but retains her girlish
ways, her jolly spirit and much of her
beauty, and even to guess .at her age is
not only a crime, but an absurdity.

ninnkets of Bark.
In Ecuador, one of the South Ameri
can republics, the bark of a tree which
grows on the slopes of tho Andes is
utilized for the making of blankets.
The blanket is over six feet long and
over five feet wide and is as soft and
pliable as though it were made of flan
nel. It is about the thickness of a good
flannel blanket and can be rolled up and
put in a strap without hurting or injur
ing it. -
This tree or bark blanket is merely a
strip of bark cut from a section of the
trunk of the blanket or demajagna tree.
The Indians make a cutting around the
trunk to get it. 'and they prepare it by
soaking it in water until it is soft. It
is then pounded so that the rough out
side can be stripped off and the inside
alone left The inside is of fine fibers so
joined together by nature that it makes

"There is a close connection between
marriage and the price of wheat, beef,
pork, beans, corn and other things
which go to make up the main portion
of human food, " writes Professor D. R.
McAnally of "The American Girl's
Chances of Marriage, " in The Ladies
llome JournaL "As the prices of these
commodities go up the number of mar
riages goes down. From 1851 to 1854
times were good, food was cheap, and
the marriage rate in Massachusetts
went up to 26 per 1.000. Between 1853
and 1859 there was great depression of
trade, and in 1858 the marriage rate
went down w 17 per i.uuo. The years
from 1873 to 1875) form another period
of depression. Factories were closed and
manufacturers cf ' every kind suffered
severely. In one year, at least, crops
were short and the prices of food were
high. The result was immediately seen
in matrimony, for in 1874 the number
of marriages went down from 21 per
1,000 of the population to 18. and in
1876 and the following two years de
clined to 15. per 1.000 a tremendons
falling off from 20 per 1.000, the figure
attained in 1854. which was the banner
year in the state of Massachusetts for
"Almost as unfavorable as that of
hard times is tho influence of war upon
matrimony. Whenever Mars is in the
ascendant Cupid's stock goes down.
During the civil war tho number of
marriages in this country fell off from
20 per 1,000 of population to 17 per
1.000, and immediately after the civil
war was ended, in 1865, the number
rose to 22 per 1,000. declining in 1869
to 21. The woman who is looking for a
husband has a belter chanca cf getting
one just before or just after a war than
at any other time. "
With tbe Fading of Beaoty.
A 16-year-old girl imagines that she
is an angel, and never gets over it.
After a woman gets old she thinks of
how she was admired and compliment
ed in ber youth and feels that some
great wrong was done her because she
did not remain as pretty as she was at
16. If she is married, she is apt to lay
tho blame on. the brutality of her hus
band: if she is an old maid, she lays it
on her father, who was poor, and thus
forced her to work, which resulted in
a stooping figure and harsh features.
A man never has this experience. He
is at his worst at 10 and does not reach
his best until he is 26 to SO. By that
timo he has acquired a little sense, and
never mistakes a compliment for the
truth. Atchison Globe.

The most productive apple and peach country in the world.
An Acre of orchard yields from $100 to $300 worth of fruit
The attention of investors in past years has been drawn to the profit
of fruit growing and many have given" up occupations in ollieo and iu
farms to engage in what has been 'described to be an ideal life. Lack of
knowledge anil experience lias, however, often sadly interfered with tho
hoped fcr outcome, and the enterprise has fallen far short of what it -could
have been if properly gone about. The right plan is clearly the
co-operative one, bv which the capital of tho various investors is cui:i-
bined and the proper class of skilled superintendents and helpers is em
ployed. The plan is tho most productive, and instead of being a weary
and worried cultivator himself, the investor is a bond-holder cutting oiT
his coupons and drawing his regular and handsome dividends.
The latter is the plan of the Ozark Commercial Orchard & Fruit.
Company. The shares of the company can bo bought on a basis of $10
down and $5 per month.
Each Share Represents an Acre of Orchard
To have one or ten of these shares is obviously, however, better
than to have one or ten acres of orchard, for the economy of working
the whole great orchard over a large number of small ones results in much
greater prolits to the investor.
An Investment of a small part of your earnings for a short time
M ill secure an income for life.

How a Woman
Howell, Ltd., Not. 26.
I will always praise Wine of Cardni. It
has done ma more good than all the medi
cines I have ever taken in my life. Please
send a book about female diseases to the
ladies whose names I enclose.
Mrs. MINNIE 8TODGHIIX.
It Isn t necessary for a woman to give particulars. When she says
she has " female troubles ", other women know what that means. It
means days and nights of endless suffering. It means headaches which
no tongue can describe. It means that terrible bearing and dragging
down in the lower abdomen. It means agonizing backache, and shoulder
ache, and arm ache, and aches in the lower limbs. It means nerves on
edge the blues despondency and loss of hope. It means debilitating
drains that the doctors call leucorrhcea. It means martyrdom some
times even death seems preferable. And still Wine of Cardui will utterly
rut those diseases and pains to rout
It has cured thousands of cases
when nothing else on earth would.

bride, to the wife, to the expectant
mother, to those going through
