Tbe great troubln in ininii:g ventures Is the
cubtoai of capita liang a company outrageous
ly hi;,-U. A small property with an Immense
capitalization and worked in a email way can
never prove profitable. I remember my sell
ing a projjerty onco for 810,01)0; the purchaser
lisfosed ot it tor (''O.tMJ, and this second
buyer sold to a Kyndii'ata for (50,000. The
result was the forming of a company with a
capital of 1,M0,00U On such a basis, of
course, the mine never made any showing. A
mercantile business showing a profit of
$10,000 a yer.r would he of value to one, two
or three persons, but what would it be If di
vided among one thousand persons! It is like
boring a hole with an nu:;er where a pimlut
hole is oil that Is required. St. Louis Ulohe

The dtath at Cienfueos of Capt. William
F. Wurdwell, of Verona, clotted a career that
if toll would rival Robinson Crusoe's. Capt
Wardwe'd was bora ia Penobscot In 1&20,
and made his first voyage at the age of 13,
since whii h time he had never been off the
veeaol'a dock for twelve consecutive months,
lie had been shipwrecked nine times, and
each time was forced to leave the vessel with
only such clothing as h had on at the time
of the wreck." Mr. Wardwell remarked
about two years ago that ba alone was
left of the largo number of persons living
on Penobscot river and bay who were fol

A freqnent error among those interested in
cookery is to suppose that the imported
articles called currants, used in fruit cakes,
mince pios, plum puddings, buns, and the
bke, are a fruit rcaeiuhling our own black or
red currants dried. In reality these dried
fruits ahich we call curranUare just as much
raisins as anything that is offered under that
specific nmne, being only a dried grape, al
though of an exceedingly nm.ll variety, each
grape no bigger than a common pea, and each
bunch but two or three inches long. These
little grape bunches are picked and dried in
the sun, and are so full of saccharine matter
that the exuding sugar crystallizes them into
a compact form of sufficient hardness to re
quire considerable strength to open tbe mass
and prepare the fruit for packing, they being
then a second time compressed, this time by
means of treading with the feet, which pro
cesses perhaps account for a great deal of the
dirt and gravel usually to tie found packed
with them. These little grapes grow all
through the islands and adjacent regions of
the Grecian Archipelago, and being exported
originally from Corinth, they were called at
first corinths, which word was gradually cor
rupted into currants, till the primitive plant
ami its fruit were forgotten in remembrance
of the little round berry of our own gardens,
which might le dried from now till dooms
day without developing enough sugar to melt
them together an we find the Zante currants
melted. Harper's Bazar.

There are snid to be many small parties of
American ladies who are making the tour of

or even by a courier. The 'arties are gen

and find no trouble whotever in getting about.
The custom is a growing one, and whereas
half a dozen years ago such a thing would
have been regarded as impossible, now it ex

A DANGEROUS EXPERIMENT.
Don't, gaya Burdette, Try to Stop Tour
Husband from Smoking.
. A woman, whom she once met on the train,
told Lydia Jackson Lamphere how she kept
her husband from smoking. "On our wed
ding day," she said, "I made what I called
a declaration of principles to my husband.
1 said to him that it was my purpose to make
his conduct my guide tu all respects; that In
our family there would be no separate stand
ards and whatever be would thilfa right for
himself should be right for me." You see
what was coming. "One evening supper was
over, the shades drawn and the lamp lighted,
and we were seated for an evening of reading
or sewing, when my husband took up bis
pipe for an evening emoke. Seeing this, I
calmly drew from my pocket a pipe, which I
began to fill with tobacco exactly as be was
doing. As he proceeded, so did L I coolly
scratched a match, lighted the pipe and took
Well, as the woman told Lydia the story
the husband of course gave up. Good story,
aa far as it goes, but I cant help thinking
what, oh, suffering sisters, what would have
happened if that kind hearted husband bad
not relented, but bad kept on smoking, and
permitted invited nay, urged his wife to
join himf What kind of an evening would
they that is, what kind of an evening would
he have enjoyed I Oh, sisters, never, no
matter what Lydia Lamphere'a friend tells
vou, never try that cure on your husbauds
your respective husbands, that ia. It won't
work, with all men. tt would enre one of
you of smoking; that 1 am sure of, but it
wouldn't be him. You may safely try it, if
you are fond of excitement of a rather limp
tnd stringy kind; it wont kill you, even if
you do take your first smoke with a brier
pipe and nigger bead tobacco. But you can
produce the same effect upon yourself with a
I tremble especially about the shoulders
when I think what awful scenes may be pre
cipitated in happy homes by the fallacious
heories taught in this story. Why, sister, I
nave seen a boy, a great, strong, rough boy,
14 years old, so wrought upon by a mild five
cent cigar, not more than half smoked, that
lie has stretched himself supinely upon the
cold bosom of the inhospitable earth and
vaited with an unconnurn that would chill
your blood for death, bis father or the doctor
lo come along, and he didn't care a cent
'vhich got the first whack at him. And when
you think of a grown up woman, a married
woman, mother of children, may be, starting
in on a pipe well, 1 don't want to think of
It, that's all. I've got to go to bed some time
to-night, and I can rest just as well without
the nightmare as I can ith it and not "hol
lar," till 1 wake up the whole house. But 1
cannot close witliout a jtartiug word of warn
ing. Don't you listen to Lydia Lampbsre on
this question, for she's your fricml, and I
ilont want you to turn against her.
You take the advice of a man who knows
more about pies than you do about
tiusbauds, and don't you go to smok

Kven if you don't die, you might learn
to like it as he dues, and then where would
y-oa be, if he should war.t to quit? Dont you
cmoke pipes, you chew gum, if you must do
something wicked. You can worry the im
laortal life out of him with that if you'll only
leep at it, and talk and chew a great deal at
tbe same time. That's very effective. You

Adiri-ct practical experiment, in a laundry lias proved to me
that the Ivory,' tested against a certain well known brand of
laundry soap, has the same amount of cleansing power and cue aud
"two-thirds the lasting capacity. That is, the Ivoiy Soap will do one
"ami two thirds times the work of the soap against which it was
"tested. I therefore consider the Ivory a very good laundry soap."
JOHN W. LANGLEY,
Professor of Chemistry, University of Michigan.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the ' Ivory'
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
