"Well, you see, it was ueahly 13, and we
were talking about push and enterprise
and that sort of thing, and Miss Amy we
marked, 'I do so like a man with some go

This may be done, or is done, abroad,
with or without the previous salting or
pickling process, which makes them last
rather longer. It depends on when they
are wanted. The operation Bhould be done
with a wood fire, and the large, old fash
ioned chimneys are the best, unless a small
room in an outhouse could be devoted to
the purpose, where a wood fire could be
kept burning in the stone recess and the
smoke allowed to escape through the
chinks of the door. This is the case with the
kitchen in many country cottages abroad,
and the housewife performs her culinary
duties with the door open, while the cocho-
naille, or "pig stuff," aa it is familiarly
called, hangs from hooks in the rafters,
smoking itself leisurely year in and year
out, with excellent results, too, and is used
Sausages, of course, take a longer time
than other things. The salting or pickling
process is as follows: To every four quarts
of water allow six pounds of coarse salt
and one pound of sugar. Let this brine
boil till an egg will float on the surface.
Put the sausages or other meat into a
strong earthenware utensil and poor the
brine over it; cover it with a board fitting
into the pot and weight it down heavily.

Thought It Was the Monkey's.
A diamond necklace was possessed by
Mme. Geoff ery de St. Hilalre, the wife of the
famous French naturalist. It was oneof the
chiefest of her "contentments," as Hindoo
women aptly term their jewels. One day
madame missed her necklace. There was
a terrible turmoil in the house, and all the
servants down to the foolish, fat scullion,
were suspected, but in turn proved their
innocence. At last it was remembered
that M. de St. Hilaire had a pet monkey,
and on a search being made in the "glory
hole of the qiiadrumane the precious bau
ble was discovered hidden away with a
white satin shoe, several cigar ends, a pen
cil case and a decomposed apple.
The renowned naturalist camly observed
that he had frequently seen the monkey
playing with the necklace. "Why did you
not take it from him? indignantly asked
his spouse. "I thought it belonged to him,"
replied M. de fct. Hilaire. lie evidently

gonaut. What Oyster "Seed" Is.
By "seed" of oysters is meant tbe"miik"
or spat or spawn, which is deposited dur
ing the breeding season (in summer), and
adheres to some object or other in the
water of the "beds." As soon km the
"milk" finds a resting place, helped by
the action of the sea water, it begins to
harden and to take form. Just as the white
liquid china clay of the pate-sur-pate china
decorator in its elevations and depressions
hardens upon the side of a cup or vase, and
by the different thickness of its hardened
layers forms the lovely figures we see in
art collections, so the "milk" of the oyster
grows into the shape intended for it by
nature. Though the oyster shell is so un
couth and rough in outline, yet what won
drous alchemy is this! Edward L. Wilson

William, earl of Warren, in the time of
King John, while standing upon the casile
walls, saw two bulls fighting in the castle
meadow, till all the butcher dogs pursued
one of the maddened bulls quite through
the town. The sight pleased the earl so
much that he gave the castle meadows,
where the duel of the bulls bewail, for a
common to the butchers of the town, after
the first crass was mowed, on condition
,bat they should find a mad bull the day
six weeks before Christinas day for the
