SARCASM OF DEAN SWT ,
Humor in His "Rules and Direct
Thoro was a servant problem w t vi
Dean Swift wub alive Just b then u
to-day, and ho died In 1745. in uli
"Rules aid Dlrectionu for Sorvuntb
ho wrote: "When you have broker
all your earthen vessels below atalr?
which 1b usually done In a week-
tho copper pot will do as well; It car
boil milk, heat porridge, hold small
beer; apply it Indifferently to all those
uses, but never wash or scour it."
And again: "If you want papor to
Inge a fowl, tear tho first book yoi
so pbout the house. Wlpo your shoes
for want of a clout, on the bottom of
a curtain or a damaBk napkin." "In
roasting or boiling," he goes on, "use
none but the large coals and save
the mall ones for the fires alw
stair." Another touch that might
havo been written to-day Is the follow
ing: "When a butler cleans tho plato
leavo tho whiting plainly to be seen in
all tho chinks, for fear your lady
should not believe you had cleaned
It." Onoe more: "There are several
ways oC putting out a candle; you
may run tho candle ond against the
wainscot, which puts the snuff out Im
mediately; you may lay It on the
ground and tread the snuff out with
your foot; you may hold It upside
down until It is choked In Its own
grease, or cram it Into the socket of
tho candlestick; you may whirl it
round in your hand till It goes out."
DOE8 NOT LIVE IN FIRE.
Popular Idea About tho Salamander
Now that "spontaneous generation'
has oxchangod the realm of supersti
tion for that of fact, an older theory
about It becomes interesting. In An
draws' "Anecdotos Ancient and Mod
em" (1789), one readB: "Should a
glass house Are be kept up, without
extinction for a longer term than sev
en years, there is no doubt that sala
mander would be generated In the cin
dors." This probably accounts for the
popular idea that a salamander lives
In the fire, a fallacy so far removed
from the truth that the carious lizard
like beast so called cannot endure
oven the heat of the sun, but skulks
away under stones to avoid It It will
never lose lta reputation for fire-oat
ing, though, which lingers still In tho
heating utensil that is named after It
Passing of the Camp Meeting
A venerable American institution
the camp meeting, is on the wane. It
la still far from dead, but those who
know it best perceive most clearly
that Its sunset hour has come. As
the old preachers of to-day recount
In the past tense the experiences of
the circuit rider, that pioneering apos-
tlo of Christianity to new communities,
bo the preachers of to-morrow will
toll on occasions of reminiscence of
tho former glories of tho hilarious
camp meeting, when people "got re
ligion" and were not afraid to mako a
noise about it. Fewer and fewer f
tho strongest preachers attend tho
camp meetings. The more cultivates
church members become the less
taste they appear to have for this sort
ef "old-time religion." Plainly, tho
camp meeting is on the decline.
The Mather's Religion.
Often our ohildren fall to rospecA
ur religion because we do not fill
oar highest capacity. We allow some
udden passion, some overwhelming
caro to cause ua to lose our self-con
trol and drag us down to the lowei
levola of life. Our children measure
us by the assiduity with which wo
follow and practioo our beliefs and
the eagorness and hope under which
we ntrlve to make them grow. Of
what value Is our religion If It does
aot smooth the temper and add cheer
and comfort to our homos; if it does
not put more Justice, sweetness and
love Into human life 7 Moatroal Her
