The Illinois woman's expos lion board
contemplates a novel exhibit as part of
its work, in the form of a model home.
The idea is to show the idea! conditions
that thou!d surround a woman's li'c in
the household and demonstrate the facil
ities that can be provided at a moderate
cost. If the p'an is carried into execu
tion (5,000 will be appropriated and the
building erected with a special view to
its sanitary coci.ilions ar.d arrangements
for heating, lighting and cooking. The
members of the board whi advocate the
exhibit are confident they can secure lib
eral contributions of material from Illi
nois builders, thereby bringing its cost

Cleveland and Mtrvtnsnn.
At such a crisis a3 this, when the coun
try is threatened by a faction intrenched
in power, with the thousands of federal
officeholdeis under its control acting as
its unscrupulous agents in politics, and
re-enforced by millions of money con
tributed by a plutocratic ciass desperately
bent on perpetua ing its supremacy end
willing to go to any length in the attempt
to retain its hold on government, the
leader needed for the people is ore whose
honesty all know; whose sincerity all can
trust; whose courage has been demon
strated in victory with the people as in
defeat for thtir cause. Grover Cleveland
is such a man a man who knows no
sectional line dividing Americans in
whose broad sympathies all Americans are
embraced, who follows his fixed convic
tions of right and duty regardless of the
effect on his personal fortunes; who has
repeatedly shown himself ready to sacri
fice bis own preferment to his sense of
rectitude, and who in doing so has
grown each time stronger until now,
when, chosen to serve the democrat c
party in its leadership and in advocacy
of its great principles of individual liber
ty and local self-government, he stands
among living Americans first in the es
teem and ;onfidecce with which the Am
erican masses reward those of their ser
vants and representatives whom, having
tried, they have found true and worthy
of trust .
In the selection of the vice-presidential
nominee the denu cracy chose that gai

Edward Murphy btatts that tbe demo
crats dislike the mugwumps "with a bit
terness far exceeding any possible ill will
which they entertain towards their re
publicans opponents "
Mr. Murphy may dislike the mug
wumps, but the democratic party rejects
no one who is willing to vote with it and
contend with it for democratic princi-
There are certain mugwump tenden
cies, among which is the disinclination to
vote for any candidate not of mugwump
election, which are distasteful to the
earnest democrats who for years have
been fighting against the robber tariff
and in behalf of personal liberty from
one end of the country to tbe other.
But all recruits to democracy are wel
come, and especially those who bring in
telligence and conscience to the party.
If they stumble and go astray occasion
ally, still their help is welcome.
Tbe democratic party is growing great

sion of new men who attach themselves

plea. Some of these have been republi
cans, some are first voters. Its new blood
has helped the democratic party to vic
tories. It has beitied to win Mr. Cleve
land's election in 1884, to carry Massa
chusetts for Russell, Pennsylvania for
Pattison, Oh o for Camptcll, Iowa for
Boies, Illinois for Palmer, Nebraska for
Boyd. It helped to swell the democratic
triumph of 1890 to magnificent propor
tions. It must be reckoned with and
counted on, nd, notwithstanding its ec
centricities, it constant demand for

No democrat wants to repel the mug
wumps unless he fears that the increase
of tbe party intelligence shall endanger
his own hold on the organizetion. ' Pa
tience and an adherence of the party to
onnd principles will soon transform tbe
mugwamp from a hesitating, sometimes
doubtful and often fractious ally, to a
loyal and steadfast democrat.
Mr. Murphy goes far astray when he
ays that democrats dislike the mugwump.
He denies his own professians of demo
cracy when be asserts that he entertains a
tronger feeling of dislike for the men
who are striving to lighten the burdens of
tariff taxation and to prevent the restab
lisnment of bayonet rule in the south than

And year by year they continue (un

for this radical blessing is not half of
the damage. Protection destroys our
ability to pay; it in large measure pro
hibits exchange of our products with
foreign countries, cuts i .ff the demand
for onr surplus corn, wheat, cotton,
meat, etc., and breaks t le price of emr
whole product. For instance if we raise
one-tenth more grain than we need to
consume, that surplus in our market
will break down the price of the whole
crop, whereas if Europe -ould exchange
freely with us the whole crop would
bear a good price. No w onder farming

While congress was leing urged to

for the industry thus jromised to be
created set July 1, 1891 the date when
the new rate was to take effect as that

from the truth that, in fact, at the date

total collapse of the McKinley prophe

which permitted America t untinned (or

HOW TO MAKE SOUP STOCK.
A Proper and Inexpensive Method of
Making Sure of Gool Soups.
Soup of the very best is very cheap, if
it be properly made. If it be not properly
made it is more expensive and not as good.
The best material, by all odds, is beef.
The next best is veal, but when veal is
used it is wise to use beef also.
Beef, to bo sure, is tbe most expensive of
the staple meats, but the best piece of
which to make soup is the cheapest cut in
tbe carcass. It is the "sticking piece,"
which is high up on the neck. It is so
culled because the animal is bled from
there when slaughtered. As the carcass is
hung head down, the valuable juices
which you need in soup settle there. Use
also the bones which the butcher removes
from your roasting piece. lioue is good,
not so much for the marrow, though that
Is Roo.1, as for the fibrin that it yields.
In addition to this material use chicken
bones or turkey bones if a roast fowl has
been carved. If a fowl has been Ixiiled.
use the water In which it h.-us been cooked.
These materials blend. Do not put mut
ton in with beef, neither any ham booca or
As to rooking, don't boil. The hasty,
and therefore poor, cixik will lniil meat for
soup. Put your meat and bones into a
stone pot or an agate ware vessel of some
kind, COVet with water and simmer all day.
It won't htirt to simmer it louder, but at
least ten hours is necessary. The pot
should lie closely covered, so that no flavor
or strength shall be lost by evaporation.
Nothing whatever should be put in the
pot, excepting what has lie-en mentioned,
until within two hours of the time when
the. soup, or rather the stock, is to be con
sidered done. At that time take all the
Vegetables that are to go into the soup for
flavoring and tie them up iu a bunch.
Throw them iu and let them cook for the
two hours. Then remove them. They are
next to worthless, though our teachers, the
French, would serve them, with plenty of
aeasouing, as vegetables. If they are left
to cook in the soup longer than about two
hours they will injure the flavor of the

What business man would select as man
ager of his manufactory a man completely
ignorant of the details of the business, and
yet many fashionable mothers expect him
to select for the mistress of his home a
woman who not only never cooked a dish
in her life, but considers herself too beau
tiful or too dainty to be concerned about
such things. "Why, I shall have a house
keeper, of course; she will see to all that.
Charlie wants me to keep pretty and enjoy
myself." There are, however, household
duties which cannot lie left to the care of
help. Brooklyn Eagle.
Intellectual Development of Women.
The truth has been told so often that it
I hardly needs repetition. Woman has been
developed intellectually, as all acknowl
edge, later than man. The reason is sim-
I pie. During the period of physical despot
ism this influence' carried with it mental
despotism as well, and the more finely or
ganized sex inevitably yielded to" the
, coarser. Over the greater part of the globe
to the present day women cannot read and
write, t was only in the time of George
IV that there was abandoned, even in Eng
land, the old law of "benefit of c lergy,"
' which exempted from civil punishment
those who could Mad and write the as
sumption being that no woman could read
or write, and therefore that no woman
. should have lienelit of clergy.
A hundred ream ago, in our own coin
I iry, we know by the letters of Abigail Ad
ams that the education of women in the
most favored families went little beyond
j Shading and writing. All this is now swept
away: but the tradition that lay f hind it,

As to the seasoning, a word is necessary.
If meat is salted when it is first put on to
simmer it will harden and refuse to yield
its juices. Wait until the soup is nearly
doue and then season to taste.
After the cooking is completed remove
the pot from the tire and strain the soup
carefully. Set it in a cool place in a stone
pot and let ft cool thoroughly before put
ting it into the ice!ox. If it is put on the
ice to cool quickly it will not ke p so well.
When it is thoroughly cool set it on the ice
and you will speedily find that you have a
rich meat jelly.
This jelly is concentrated soun. it is the
ci oci oi an meat soups, ami enters into 1
the combination of m arly every one of the
hundreds of soups that may be made.
Il may almost be said that no good soup
can be made without this jelly, or "stock,"
for its foundation. That would lie an ex
aggeration, of Course, for excellent soup
may be made of many things, Good stock,
however, prepared in this way is an addi
tion of great excellence to any soup. Di
lated simply with hot water it makes the
consomme, and with additions becomes

86 Do not fail to see this Very Interest
What quality or what want of quality is '
it that makes it impossible for certain peo- '
pie to maintain an appearance of tidiness '
in the rooms where they live, and while in I
some houses everything looks as if it grew
iu its place and could uot be uprooted, in
their houses everything looks as if tumbled
into confusion and were only waiting
foe a whirlwind to give it another turn: j
The COVeq are- half off and half on the
fur.iiture; the books are open, face
down, perhaps, on the- table, perhaps on
the sofas, perhaps on the floor; ths
flowers are faded iu the glasses where
the water has never been renewed; the
lamp shade is awry; the rug is tossed
upat the corner; the photographs are fallen
pellmell; the cushions are scattered; the
chairs seem to have been arrested in a
waltz; a piece of fancy work is left where
it happened to be dropped; hassocks are
anywhere where they can trip up the un
wary: even the pictures on the wall are out
of line, and there is not a straight naJJi t i
be followed anywhere in the room. The
bees and the ants put this house mistress
to shame, and so do the birds, who make
their nests in old trees indistinguishable
with lichens. If she tried to make order
out of the chaos she would only achieve
another turn of disorder.
Yet after all it is to be questioned if
there is not as much comfort in the midst
of all this amazing disorder as in a house
of prim and methodical geometrical rule,
where a crumb is a crime, where nothing
is out of place, and if you take a book you
feel you must replace it to within a hair's
breadth of where it was before, and the
neatness is such as to put the indweller in
bonds. A golden mean is desirable in all
things something that is neither too pre
cise nor too disorderly. Yet there seems
to be an easygoing element of sweet tem
per in the disorder that promises, on the
whole, more happiness than may belong
where everything is done by line and meas
ure, with a sort of crabbed and acrid acid
ity of flavor in the very air you breathe
