Selected Tt Herself.
A dutiful husband wished to give his
wife a handsome lace .scarf for a present,
and, to make sure of gettiny one to her lik
ing, he listed her to buy one herself on the
pretence that it was for a lady friend of
theirs. The finest Hoajtoa, Valenciennes
and Brussels lace goods were spread out on
the counter, but madanic thought to her
self: "What is the use of spending so much
money on a present lor Amelie?"
Some embroidered lace was shown next.
Even these were too dear. At length she
selected a very plain and ordinary scarf.
"Quite good enough, too," she thought,
and took it home to her husband.
"Have you chosen something pretty?" he
"Oh, yes, very pretty."
"Is it just what you would have chosen
for yourself ?:'
"The very thing."
'Then, my dear, you may keep it. I in
tended it for you!" exclaimed her husband,
delighted with his little scheme. Curtain.

Keep AVonnds Cleau.
Wounds consist of cuts, bruises, punct
ured wounds or poisoned ones. In case of
a cut wound wash it clean, bring the parts
together and fasten a clean bandage over
In bruises the parts are usually lacerated
under the skin, and the blood which es
capes under the skin undergoes changes
which make the skin look dark colored.
All to do for those is to cover them with a
cloth wrung out in cold water. The same
holds true in punctured wounds, of which
a stab is an instance. The cardinal idea is
first to remove all dirt by allowing clean
cold water to trickle over it, and then to
cover with a clean piece of cloth to keep
dirt out. Exchange.
An Excellent Idea.
The other night a lady desired her guests
to hear a piece of music she had composed
in order to turn one of John Boyle OReilly '9
poems into a ballad. The poem was
"Jacqueminot," one of the sweetest of
O'Reilly's compositions. As she could not
sing well, and as her husband did not care,
to sing either, he read the verses while his
wife played upon the piano. The reading
was measured out to suit the music, the
words being broken into separated sylla
bles when it was necessary. The effect was
beautiful. Again and again the guests
begged to have the performance repeated.
Thus by accident was discovered a charm
ing new idea that would be very effective

Bow to Treat a Burn.
Burns vary in depth, from a blister on
the surface to an actual destruction of a
part of a limb. In addition to a pain, the
burned person is in danger from an im
pression made on the nervous system
known as shock. This often has to be
treated, as well as the shock itself. If the
clothes are on fire throw the victim down
and wrap a blanket around. Then add
water and cut the clothing away, not dis
turbing any parts that stick. Cover the
burn with a layer of sweet oil, lard or lin
seed oil, vaseline any fat not rancid.
Then wrap in cloths to keep the air out.
For the shock, give a teaspoonf ul of brandy
every ten minutes. Interview with Doc

Do we ever need reminder in our hurried
lives of the grace that lies in the kindly
spoken word? It may be as we pass a
friend in a crowded shop, or nod to her as
we hasten by her door on our morning
walk to the market or the ferry, that we
utter the gentle greeting, leave behind tla
the flash of the happy smile, and brighten
a day that was perhaps overcast. Kind
ness costs little. Why should we not bo
lavish of it in a world where nobody stands
alone, but where rich and poor, sad and
glad, lofty and lowly, are bound in one
bundle? Harper's Bazar.
No woman need be ugly. If there is a
soul in her body it has but to begin betimes
to show through. From her earliest-girlhood
the thoughts she thinks, the feelings
to which she gives way, the tones.. she
utters, the wishes she iudulges, are sculpt
uring lines in her face that are capableof
makiug a beauty all their own lines whose
writing will remain when bloom fades and
sparkle falls. Harriet Prescott Spofford.
lie Careful of the Child' Ears.
Children often put peas, beans, coffee
grains, etc., into their ears, and in trying, to
remove it friends are apt to only push the
substance farther into the orifice. No in
strument should ever be used, except-by
an aurist, in removing anything from the
ear; the only thing that can be safely-employed
by the unskilled home practitioner
is a small syringe. Detroit Free Press.
President Garfield died nearly ten years

Rosewood, the material used in most
pianos, is a tropical wood, with large, open

the dampness for any considerable length
of time the effect on the polish or varnish
