HOME LIFE ON THE WANE.
Eajtllsh Hostesses A conned ot Bel BIT
Slowly, but surely, the pride the
English hostesses ttok In their home,
in their reputation for hospitality and
in their ability to pUn pleasant little
entertainments for their friends Is pass
ing away. The smart young hostess no
longer cares to welcome her guests
among her I -ares and I'cnates; it Is no
longer her earnest desire to display her
housewifely genius; no longer her am
bition to shlue as a "clever little wom
an who so thorouchly understands just
what every one likes."
There are too many lions In society's
fire to look after nowadays for her to
fritter away time In this fashion. More
over, people want Incessant novelty;
they are lorcd with even good menus,
they tire of certain surroundings, tliey
must have everything a little in ad
vance, and as little as possible like any
thing that obtained a decade, say
nothing of two decades, ago. Thus It

WHEN DOGS ARE SICK.
The War t) Give Medicine to These
Highly Bensltlre Patients.
in all treatment or a sick dog re
member yon are dealing with a highly
sensitive and nervous patient. Be very
gentle, avoid roughness or anything
likely to alarm him. In giving him any
liquid medicine do not open his mouth.
but, placing him between your knees,
with his face looking in the same direc
tion as your own, gently raise his Jaw
and, nuilic'r his lins away from bis
teeth on one side of his mouth, to form
a cup or funnel, very slowly pour from
bottle or spoon the quantity he Is to
have into it.
Keep his head raised for a minute or
two and If he does not swallow the
dose Insert a spoon between his front
teeth. This will have the effect of
drawing off his attention from the
medicine and he will usually swallow
at once. If the dose Is a pill, bolus or
anything solid, hold his head the same
way as before mentioned, but with the
left hand under lower Jaw, press firmly
on each side with thumb and finger at
the Junction of upper and lower Jaws.
This will usually cause htm to open
his mouth, when the dose should be
put into the mouth as far back as
possible over the tongue (or he will spit
it out) and close the Jaws somewhat
sharply, and in most cases the deed la
done. If any trouble arises with the
action of his front paws this may be
got over by wrapping him round with
a shawl or coarse apron.
When once you have got Into the way
of It, you will be surprised how simple
It is. I am quite sure a practiced own

Cowardice of Sharks.
Many tales have been told of how
human beings have been-devoured by
the fish that Is known us the "mau

been greatly exaggerated, they are to
a certain extent true. It Is also' true
that sharks have beeniknown to follow
a ship for days, pickiitg up and eating
that which had been thrown overboard
Notwithstanding all this the coward
liness of sharks is well known among
men who have been much to sea in
southern waters. The fiercest shark
will get out of the way of a swimmer
if the latter sets up a noisy splashing.
A shark fears anything that splashes

much about the old Itoman laws. Fi
nally one of them asked him tow he
acquired his knowledge.
