predicted that the heiuty of the handle
would only add to the inducement to steal,
for the head and face we're exceedingly

knew perfectly well tlat tlu-y were when

was that, it didn't. Forsix years theowner
has carried that nmbn-lla, through rain or
shine, haviny; a jiew cover put on when

That time she left it standing in a shop,

not hurt t he usefulness of the article the
least bit in the world, 'nit it did impair the
desirability of it sutl ciently trT keep the

Housekeepers who never had a tin cov

A fair and cheap substitute is found by
covering tables with the marbled cloth
sold sometimes for washstauds and chil
dren's bibs. It was Mephistopheles him
self who designed kitchen tables out of
soft pine Itoards. With their absorbent,
and spreading qualities a tiny drop of
grease is quickly co.i verted into an un
sightly blotch, and a hot handle or kettle
sears its indelible mark across their sur
face. They were mi-tie certainly to be

Since we are adopt n so many of our

t;o back to the old way of Katheriug herbs
to lie used for trifling ailments, instead of
calling a doctor when ver one of the fam

garden should have some space for herbs.
Catnip is excellent f. -r nervous headache,
colds, slight fevers and colic. It is also
guml to put in iioiilticts for boils and other
painful swellings. Sa,'e is good for fevers,

An infusion madu from the root of a
plant caiied pleurisy root is excellent for
colds and slight alle-tionsof the lungs.

The littlt ones are entitled l.t loving
care, to tender caresses and sweet words of
endearment. It is oul v w hen love becomes
injudiciously indulgei t that Hit- process of
spoiling begins. It is so pi-as-i nt and easy
to give w ay to litt le e: act ion., laugh at
the tia.i-!i'y, yet winsome act i ins, thai the
rosebud is surrounded wit it pri kiy t horns,

not. a commanding t llicer, ii the great
army of enf.iuts gates, it sounds ltetter in
French the foreign syllables are less
downright but there is no so telling I he
hard reality away.
And then, with a remorseful conscious
ness that it is our chi d who has lcome a
"nuisance"' the favo.-ite term applied to
the spoiled children of other ieople we
enter hurriedly and eiiergetically uiton the
task of rooting up the noxious weeds
which are choking the growth of all that
is sweet and attractive iu the youthful
character. And with a sigh of contrition
we deplore our own failures aud resolve to
be more vigilant. Wt will not, we must
not, let the little darlings lie ruined by our
ineilit.-iency. And so, taking courage, we
liegiu over agaiu, looking cheerfully for
ward to the days when, as grandmothers,
we can exercise the pi ivileges of that dig
nity and spoil to our heart's content.
The l.lltle liil.lren of the Kat-e.
The little children o' the race are intel
lectually more resectable than the major
ity ot its adults. To be sure, it is their at
litutle and nut, their achievement s that
makes i hem so; but in estimating Hie hu
man being as u min i rather that, as "a
strew in the social ma. hine," who can hidp
thinking t he attitude more important thai,

lectual curiosity of children and their con
tinual return lo the tiggest and deepest
questions the origin i f things, the sources
mill ends of biting ti ese are what make
them .superior. What if the questions can
never be absolutely answered? Is it not
inliniteiy more respectable to have them
earnestly in mind than, accepting Home
mumbo jumbo reply, to dismiss them al
together and to devote existence wholly to
the frivolities wet-all business or pleasure
or learning? What ebe was Carlyle's fun

Upon my word, I sometimes think that
if the world were st trted now on a new
pla, and peopled altogether with the mid
dle nged, religious, after going on a short
time through the impetus of custom,
would die out ail over the world from this
simple lack interest iu the questions
they primarily undertake to answer. As
it is, the children force us to keep some
sort of theory of existence furbished up.

Cleaning Windows and Taint.
To make more easy the cleaning of win
dows and paint get a large sponge, such as
is used to wash carriages, and chamois
skin ami go to work. Use lukewarm wa
ter. Wash off the windows, glass aud
frames thoroughly with a snonge, then
with the skin wipe them off, and no rub
bing will be required. Proceed the same
with the painted work about the house,
ami you w ho try it will find your paint
and windows never looked so well before.
Wring the chamois as dry as you can each
time you use ii. Due advantage of this
method over the old way of cleaning is that
no lint, is left on paint or windows.
A handy thing to have for the window
corners is a toothbrush to take dust or
dirlout. If the paint has been white ami
turu-d yellow, take a little soda on the
sponge and rub over it, washing off with
clean water, and you w ill lie surprised to
see how inucli belter it w ill look. Or if
the window sill has any grease spots upon
it, spreatl the soda thickly over them; then
scrub with soap and water. One or two
tablespooiifuls of ammonia added to a pail
of water w ill clean windows better than
soap. Hall's Journal o Health.
Washing Sotlit Saves Labor.
A writer has defined dirt as "matter out
of place.'" This applies with double force to
the grease of the kitchen, which is too often
allow etl to accumulate on the shies of the
sink ami on dishes. Proiei-ly used this
grease is invaluable in making soap. By
cutting the grease in the sink ami on the
dishes by the use of some very powerful
alkali like potash or soda, we make a sub
stance, which, if not a soap, contains the
component parts of soap, ami at once as
sists as a cleansing agent. A kefj of "wash
ing soda" should always be on hand near
the sink so that a little water with a lump
of soda may lie thrown in spiders or grid
dles or in any other utensil that has lie
come greasy from cooking. After a few
moments' boiling all the grease is eaten
up by the alkali, and when the mixture is
thrown down the sink it actually acts as
a means of cleansing instead of choking
up the pipe with grease. New York Tri

Women at IK-tor.
To go back as far as the end of the Thir
teenth century, a woman named 1'rotula
was professor of the art of healing, at the
Universit y of Palermo.and an old cert ideate
iu the archives of Paris shows that it was
a woman w ho was called upon to prescribe
for I-ouis IX on his ret urn from the rri

del Sabucco, a Spanish woman, was con
sidered an excellent doctor, aim a hundred
years later Anna Manzolini, an Italian,
was professor in a medical college in Milan.
Two other well known women doctors
were Barbara Weintranhcin, a German
