"I met Mirk Twain in Paris," writes a
New York Tribune correspondent. "On
my expressing the hope that he was en
joying himself in that gay and festive
ctpi a', be replied, with characteristic
linked deliberation long drawn out: 'No,
I'm not over here enjoying myself; I'm
over here heaping maledictions upon the
rheumatism, which has got hold of my
right arm.' I expressed my regret, adding
that he ought to have had the presence of
mind, if he was going to have tte rheu
matism, in any of his arms, to select the
left one. 'Yes.' hp assented, 'anyway, I
.should have exercised mv left arm so that
I could depend upon it In an energeney.
I have found that a left arm is an uncom
monly useful thing to have the full 'use
of.' A few hours later, as I was strolling
through the ealtn in the Champ de Mars,
I observed Merit standing in more or less
rapt contemplation before one of the
pictures. Art had evidently made tim
lose sight of h's rheumatism."
T'elleately Colored Designs on Linen.
Picnic Tablecloths and Floor Cushions.
Summer fancies in needlework are shown
in some charming self colored designs. For
Instance, a tablecloth will have the pretty
birder delicately tinged with terra cotta
thrown up with a few deeper shades; a side-b-iard
slip will bear a fine pattern wrought
in shades of water bine silks.
Finger bowl doilies are shown in dainty
ColoriDgs and artistic designs. A large
water lily embroidered in white and gold,
a pansy or a rose of a size adapted for use,
beautifully embroidered and then cut out.,
makes quite as pretty an ornament for the
te ble aa the most fastidious could desire.
For picnic or out-of-door table covers
d ecked grass toweling in squares of dif
ferent colors may be finished with a border
in cross stitch done in fed marking cotton.
T.iis is worked over canvas basted on the
toweling, while a fringe of the same may
bt knotted on the edges. A monogram or
design of fruit or flowers will be appropri
ate to fill in the corners. If the toweling
is not as wide as desired by joining two
breadths, then feather stitching the seam
atd striping the cover with lines of feather
st ten, it may gain in width and ornamen
tal qualities as well.
Very new and taking in toilet cushion
covers are the pretty white linen ones, the
foir corners of which fold over the cushion
and may be pinned dowu in the center
with a fancy pin. In each of the corners
is a tiny spray of flowers worked in colored
silks or linen floss.
Denim in dark blue or brown couched
with a geometrical pattern in white cord
and fastened at oneend with white lacings
makes an out-of-door or floor cushion that
is us serviceable as it is good looking.
"wo bandy homemade contrivances for
tbti kitchen are illustrated in The Farm
JoirnaL Steps made like those in the cut
hee reproduced are convenient for reach
ing the upper shelves of the pantry.
HOMEMADE STEPS AXP RACK.
A handy rack for drying the dish towels
and other small articles during rainy
we tther can be made by nailing a block to
the wall heside or over the stove. The rods
being fastened on a hinge can be opened at
any angle or folded back against the wall
out of the way.
An economical family dish which warms
up well, being even better the second day,
is stewed steak. Kemoveall fat from two
or three pounds of beefsteak and cut into
pieces of convenient size for serving. Put
int) a stewpan with a quart of lukewarm
wa-.er, two carrots cut in pieces, half a
do2en peppercorns and allspice, half a tea
spoonful of salt and a pinch of curry pow
der. Let it boil up aud skim well. Then
cover the stewpan and stew two hours.
Takeout the steak. Rub into a dessert
spoonful of flour as much butter as it will
take up, stir this thickening into the
gravy and let it come to the boil. Add a
teaipoonful of mushroom or tomato catch
up and stir. Return the steak to the stew
par, aud let it simmer in this gravy for ten
The taro of u Oil Move.
The preventive for a bad smell in an oil
sto -e is to use good oil and to keep the
stove absolutely and perfect ly clean. Every
flay the flues over the burners must be
thoroughly cleansed. Several thicknesses
of t ld soft cotton cloth tied around a stick
answer for this purpose better than any
brush. The oil reservoir must on no ac
count be filled to the brim, or the oil oozes
out and causes a smell. Once a week it is
well to wash every getatable part with hot
water and soda. This thoroughly takes off
a oily soot which may have accumulated
auu which is the chief cause of smell.
A Comer Cupboard.
Corner space may be utilized in an nt
tra:tive maimer as follows: A row of tri
antular shelves is fitted in from the floor
up to a convenient height, the top being
ornamented with u scroll of very pretty do
sitrtu The inside of the ruriltoard is paint
ed a deep yellow. A glass door closes ou
one-half the shelves; it is decorated with a
borler of oxeye daisies painted in oil,
while -dainty china is nicely displayed
against the bright background. The lower
par.a, used as a receptacle for books aud
magazines, has a curtain of yellow ludia
silk, powdered with single daisied.
An Economical Pudding.
Fur a nice economical pudding, cream
together three small tablespooiifuls of but
ter, one-half cupful of sugar, then beat in
one egg and one cupful of sweet milk.
Dissolve half a teaspoon! til of soda in a lit
tle warm water and add to the milk. Sift
two cnpfuls of flour and add to it one tea
spoonful of cream of tartar. Mix all to
gether and flavor as you like. Steam for
ball an hour and serve with cream aud
Cream togother two cupfuls of sugar
with two-thirds of a cupful of butter, add

and at the laat the juice of one lemon. A
little more than half a teaspootiful of soda
thould be sifted with the flour before that

and four pounds of sugar, add the juice of
two lemons and one quart of strawberry or

STRYCHNINE AS A MEDICINE.
Russian Physicians Pronounce It of Great
Value In Chronic Alcoholism.
Dr. Gamper, of St. Petersburg, has re
cently made careful investigation into the
effect of nitrate of strychnine upon the
functional activities of the stomach. He
found, through experiments upon four
healthy young hospital assistants, that
strychnine increased the. amount of gastric
juice secreted, the general acidity and the
quantity of free acid in the secretion. It
also hastened the absorption from the
stomach and strengthened the mechanical
movements. Its effect, too, continued for
some time after its administration had
been stopped. The Lancet states that, like
many other Russian olservers. Dr. Gam
per seems to have been highly impressed
by the value of strychnine in chrouic alco
holism, declaring that it is the most effec
tive of all drugs in such cases.
The Perfect Exercise.
An enthusiastic advocate of walking as
an exercise affirms that few things, if any,
nre so effectual in building up and sustain
ing the physical organization as walking,
if resolutely and judiciously followed. It
is perfect exercise. It taxes the entire sys
tem. When you walk properly every mem
ber anil muscle, ever nerve and fiber has
something to do. The arms swing back
ward and forward, keeping step as it were
with the legs: the chest expands and con
tracts as the lungs fill and discharge; the
drummer boy pulse beats a tune for the
march; the legs curve and straighten; the
feet rise and fall, while the head rides over
ail, but not as a deadhead. Every sense it
has is employed, every faculty alert.
The nostrils expand to quaff the breeze;
the ears turn to every sound; the eyes roll
iu their sockets, sweeping from left to
right, from earth to sky; the brain is at
work through all its parts. Progress
under such conditions is the very eloquence
of physical motion. What is the effect?
The flesh is solidified; the lungs grow
strong and sound; the chest enlarges; the
limbs are rounded out; the tendons sweil
and toughen; the figure rises in height and
dignity, .and is clothed with grace and
suppleness. Hunters, who walk much, are
tall and straight, while sailors, who scarce
ly walk at all. are low and squat.
The Projl-cs of Cremation.
It wns nt Milan sixteen years aco that
the fir-t crematorium was ervcted, and, as
far as "latest improvements" concerning
cremation go. the marble building iu the
background of the wonderful white ne
cropolis in the heart of Lombards' keeps
pace with the best and latest innovations.
At Paris 3.3 human bodies were cremated
iu isyo against a very much smaller num
ber at Miiau. This, however, does not in
dicate any falling off in the general num
ber of those in favor of cremation, but is,
on the contrary, only a sign of the increas
ing popularity of the modern funeral pyre.
This is the institution in a iinmberof large
Italian towns of perambulating crematoria
which arescntabout to all the small towns
and villages of a district and return to
their headquarters after each cremation.
Vaccination in Africa.
Surgeon Parke, who accompanied Stan
ley Eniiu Pasha relief expedition, brought
back with him an additional proof of the
value of vaccination, says the American
Lancet. Before the expedition started, the
majority of the men were vaccinated by
the doctor. In the wilds of Africa an epi
demic of sinallpox broke out, aud only four
of the varcinated men were attacked by
the disease, and none died, while the camp
followers, who had not been vaccinated,
took the disease iu its most virulent form
and died iu great numbers.
A Cure for Nose niecl.
The eminent Mr. John Hutchinson, of
the Loudon hospital, recommends for the
treatment of epistaxis the plunging of the
feet aud hands of the patients iu water as
hot us it can l borne. The most relwllious
cases are said to yield to this method of
Parrtits Sometime Make a Fault Habit
ual In a Child by Noticing It Twi Much
Sometimes one fixes a fault iu a child by
noticing it too much, says Harper s Bazar.
It becomes an expression of nervousness.
The child reieats the fault through an In
ability to pass over it. It becomes like a
hard word in the spelling book that he has
met before. He recognizes the word with
out knowing its name, and at the same
moment remembers his struggles with it.
and tue painful impression fills him with
uervousness; ins miud becomes confused
and he cannot control his thought. It is
wise with a fault, as with the hard word,
to let it go to escape it. Omit the hard
word; avoid anything to excite the habit
ual fault. Presently the child forgets the
fault. It may be said th.it injudicious pa
rents often create their children's faults.
The Menu fur si Cardeu Party.
The greatest latitude is observed in ar
ranging menus for garden parties. Fre
quently, wbeu the gathering is a large one,
nothing more than a cup of tea, chocolate
or coffee is offered, with sandwiches or
wafers, and olives or salted "nuts, accord-
ing to Good Housekeeping. If served out
of doors it is unwise to arrange for any hot
dishes, salads, cold meats, jellies and ices
may Ije added to the simple refreshments
already suggested at the discretion of the
Unless one has ample conveniences for
serving, it will be wiser to undertake a
a light collation aud have it elegantly
served. Sometimes an immense bowl of
lemonade, frappe or punch is placed on a
separate table aud ladeleu intodaiuty cups.
henever the grounds are large enough,
and sufficiently shaded and screened from
the street, it is always prettier to serve the
refreshments out of doors. Otherwise the
tables should be laid indoors, when a much
more elaborate menu maybe prepared if
