A cherished tradition among the

DO WIVES LIKE TO BARN MON
The number of wives and mothers
who fulfill their duties in their homes,
and yet take up some employment by
which they also become wage-earners,
is steadily increasing. This State of
aflairs says Agnes Bailey, in Fasion
gives rise to constantly increasing dis
cussion, most of which groups itself
under three heads, namely: Do wives
like t.) earn money? Do Husbands like
to have them? And does -the practice
militate agalust the chivalric spirit c'
men toward women ?
As to the first, there are hardly two
sides to the question. Women, both
wage earners in small and great
amounts, and women in homes, receiv
ing no money save from their hus
bands, almost invariably answer this
question in the affirmative. No woman
'who has received an absolutely Inde
pendent income, be it ever so small,
relinquishes It without a sigh or at least
a smothered regret. She may give up
the independence for something more
precious, or she may abandon it at the
call of a higher duty, but there will al
ways be times when she will think
longingly of the money she used to earn.
Tnere are manyjeasons for the gene
al desire to earn money among womeo,
happily placed in homes of their own.
lhe first and usual impulse is unselfish.
Life has become such a struggle arnd
meD, intelligent, loving, devoted to
their families, wish to do so much for
their comfort, education and the estatb
ishment in the world, that they wear
theselves out in the effort..
The old way of obtaining money by
Lhe wife, that or small domestic savings,
i pitifully inadequate to her desires,
nd there Is scarcely any sweeter pleas
nre for a rood wire than the supply
Ing some homely need with money o'
er -own earning.
Then the sense of power which the
bility to earn money on even terms
with all the world gives a woman, car
des with it a subtle flattery, and, better
han the flattery, there conres a feeling
>f self-reliance from the fact that the
ausiness world Eets a money value on
ier work, which makes a at mph wom
m brave and a wieak -womain strong..
f course, the woman who earns money
neets annloyanlces and discouragemente,
lable to wound her self-love and her
inse of justice and of capacity. Bat
cisagreeable things are incident to all
1man relations. A wice woman re
members this, and is thanet-ul for the
bome-ife and love which partial'y
hield and soothe her-a support wholly
acking to many women workers. A
woman thus encouraged is not likely to
meet a business man who will prove
more annoying or make her feel more
ndgnant or more wretches than an
nompetent or impertinent servant
There is yet another reason why wives
Ike to earn money, and this is a power
u argument in its favor, to' thought
ul women, Many andl many sorowful
imes has been repeated the story of the
uitured, home-loving woman sudden
y bereft of the home and the love that
1as so gladly protected her. She has
mot been an idle wonian as the orderly
louse, the healthful family testify, and
she may even have had a. training in
iome art for self-support in her youth,

According to the newspapers, a Phila
delphian named Gross hs discovered
a prozess for making eg - He has
worked with models, an- the --3sults, it
is said, are so satisfactor. th j he will
establish a factory in PhL._.e.phia at
once. He claims that he can make
eggs for eight cents per dozen, and
they can be sold for a good profit of
ten cents all the year round. Re guar
antees they will never spoil, and,
whether fresh or old they will always
taste lite a newly laid egg, and will
build up as much tissae'in the human
frame, if eaten, as the genuine. The
o ly thing Mr. Gross fears is that as
soon as he is launched in the manufac

and have a law passed knocking him
out, as they have floored the ,oleomar

left in one end, and first the white is
put in and then the yelk. The manu
facture of the shell is simple enougb,
but Mr. Gross declines to tell by what
process or out of what materials he
produces the interior of the egg. He
says he has applied for a patent and
this part of his invention must remain
a secret until his rights are secured.
One defect in the method of manu
facture must yet be overcome, and
Mr. Gross thinks he can successfully
accomplish the fact in time. After the
contents of the egg are put inside, the
difficulty is to seal it. At present the
seal is easily broken, especially if the
egg is bodled. Speaking of the arrange
ment inside, Mr. Gross said that the
yelk is likely to be in any position,but
under no circumstances will the white
and yelk mix. In some eggs he had
broken, the yelk was found in the
centre, in others it was in one of the
Mr. Gross claimed for his egg all the
virtues possessed by the real article.
It can be used for all purposes in
cookery. It can be beaten like the
hen's eggs, and assists in producing
delicious cakes of all kinds. The white
may be used for frostings and icings,
and lastly, the manufactured egg may
be served on the table. It is easily
boiled, fried, poached or scrambled.
Speaking of smuggling, a custom
house inspector says, in a New York
News interview: "The dried en
trails of a beef or hog will hold a
good many quarts of liquor, and it is
not a difficult matter for a petty
ship's officer or seaman to fill one of
those receptacles, fod It around his
body and boldly walk ashore.
"Speaking of imported cigars, when
the proprietor of a fancy establish

remarks that "if they hadn't run the
blockade they would be worth a Q uar

pretty sure they are domestic.
"The custom people once made a
seizure of several dozen boxes of these
home-made productions on the sup

Another carpet is composed of
shaded stripes. Trhe brown stripe is
five inches wide, light brown in the

are black, drab, purple, lilac, orange,
yellow, red and pink in the order

black, same as many more were put
into the same dye and came out a

this way each dye was used twice, and
none of it was wasted. Diamond dyes
were used for each color.
Very pretty carpets are made byv
sewing the daik rags, "hit or miss"

EFFECTS OF COFk'EE.
Coffee owes its stimulating and re
,reshing qualities to caffeine, says the
Boston Jousrnal of Commerce. It also
contains gum and sugar, fat, acids,
casein and wood fiber. like tea, it
powerfully increases the respiration;
but, unlike it, does not affect its
depth. By its use the rate of the pulse
is increased and the action of the skin
diminished. It lessens the amount of
blood sent to the organs of the body,
distends the veins and contracts the
capillaries, thus preventing waste of
tissue. .It is a mental stimulus of a
high order, and one that is liable to
great abuse. Carried to excess, it pro
duces abnormal wakefulness, indiges
tion, acidity, heart-burn, irritability
of temper, trembling, irregular pulse.
a kind of intoxicstion ending in delir
im and great injury to the spinal
functione. Unfortunately, thers are
many coffee tipplers who depend upon
it as a drankard upon hii dragi. On
the other hand, coffee is of sovereign
eftacy in tiding over the nervons sys
tem in emerg encies. Coffee is also, in
its place, an excellent medicine. In
typhoid fever its action is frequently
prompt and decisive. It is indicated
in the early stages before local cm
-nd lethargy, is an antidote for many
kin ,s of poison, and is valuable in
s,,,modi6 asthma, whooping cough,
tnolera infantum and Asiatic cholera
It is also excellent as a preventive
agaiust infections and epidemic dis
eases. In districts rife with mialaria
and fever, the drinuing of hot coffee
before passing into the open air has
enabled persons living in such places
to escape contagion.
AN UNUSUALLY LIVELY CHOIR.
9iscord Among the Singers Put the Par

Perbaps if the Rev. Lamb Agnus
3f Weeping 'Canon, N. M., knew as
much about church choirs as he does
now he would not have attempted to
start a male choir at that place. If
the reports of the Weeping Canon
experiment are correct, Mr. Agnus
had but recently left a theolozica!
school and had more enthusiasm than
p actical know edge, but there can
be no doabt that his intentions
were the best. It was said many
times in Weeping Canon that the
clergyman "Im ant well but had no
'sabe.' " At all events, according to
the generally credited accounts of the
affair, as given in the B. ston Adver

could siug, or who thought he could

a source of many sleepless night to
Mr. Agnus, but matters finally pro
gressed to such a stage that it was
announced that a concert would be
given by the choir on an evening in
the early part of June. It was gen.
gally supposed that an influential ani
popular individual who was known as
"Chloride Jack" would be given the
leading part because of his remark
ably powerful if not particularly
sweet voice, but Weeping Canon was
startled by the announcement that a
young ranchman, Pompilio Peraltes,
was to be the star of the evening. It
was noticed that "Chloride" was ab.
sent from the rehearsals after that,
and many of the older and wiser
m.:mbers of the choir at once resigned
from the organization.
The concert was held on the even.
ing as announced, but what the
Weeping Canon Coyote, the local
weekly, described as an "unfortunate
misunderstanding" served to shorten
the program noticeably. After the
choir had sung two athems, which
were vigorously applauded. Senor
Peraltes started in on a solo. He bad

a double-barreled gun was thrust
through one of the open windows and
a heavy load of buckshot was dis

The "Gatored Mnle."
''Did you ever hear of a gatored
mule?'" asked Mr. William G.
Thompson of New York, who is on
his way home, after a year spent in
Florida for his health.
"A 'gatored male,'- as he is called
in Florida, is one of that stubborn
race which nas been driven partially
insane from an alligator fright. In
fact, while a mule #ill stolidly wait
to be thrown off a railroad by a ]oco
motive before he moves, he goes into
a wild state of terror at a single
glimpse of a saurian monster.
"There are hundreds of 'gatored
mules' in Florida To tell the truth,
I helped to 'gator' one myself. How
did It happen?
"Well, I had been staying at Oca
la some weeks, and finally agreed,
with several friends, to go hunting
In the South. About twenty miles
from town we located upon a small
stream abounding in game. After
pitching camp I went for a walk, and
before lona found a 'gator hole.'
From the strong, musty odor whi::h
issued from it, Iknew that the owner
was at home..
"Calling my companions, I decided
to capture him. We rammed a long
pole into the burrow several times.
ILinally we heard a snap like the re
port 'of a gun, and the pole remained
fast. The 'gator had seized it. We
tried vainly to pull him out. Then
some one suggested that we try our
camp mule. We sniouted. The mule
was led down to the hole, a chain
fa,tened to the pole, and then the
frighltened animal was started.
"There was a creaking of chains, a
roar, and the alligator, fully seven
feet in length, came out with a rush
as tne mule started on a wild run for
the road. The saurian's teeth were
sunken so deeply into the wood that
he could not release himself, and
away went the mule, pole and all.
The alligator spun around, hissing
like a steam engine, but he held on,
while the mule, thinking himself
pursued, snorted and ran. We rol
lowed, into the streets of Oscala flew
the mule and his queer load. Corm
pletely exhausted, he was stopped by
a party in front of the postoffice.
The 'gator was dead. We skinned
and stuffed him. The mule recovered,
but the sight of a swamp now throws
him into a perfect frenzy of terror."

BEST METHOD OF CLEANSING
I fancy I hear some ladies exclaim:
"Why. we have been told that already.
We have been told how to wash our
faces with cold water and soap!"
Yes; you have been told how to wash
your faces, and so keep them clean
when they are clean, but how about
the skins which are disfigured by all
sorts of eruptions and impupties
which, having been thrown to tIfe sur.
face, remain there for lackof an outlet?
What about the blackheads, caused by
the natural oil, which owing to the
dampness of the atmosphere, cannot
escape through the pores, and which
settles in them, attracting to itself a
cart da amount of dust? What aboat
ccz 3 is, which is the result of heat in
the ;lood, and an accumulation of
pwaonous matter which is thrown to
the surface? What abott the pimples,
acne, and all the tribe of aisfiguring
eruptions, which are the cause of grief
to so many ladies who write to me
plaintively: "My friends tell me I
should be pretty if it were not for my
bad complexion?" Can these troubles
be cured by the use simply of cold
water and good soap? No; 1 own
frankly that they cannot, and I will
tell you why.
The sain may be compared to a piece
of.honey comb. The comb represents
the true skin, the honey the founda
tion, or solid matter of the skin, and
the cap over the honey the epidermis
that meets the eye. Few imagine the
cells of the skin to be fillel with a
gradual accumulation of fatty matter
which canrot escape, because the en
trance, or perhaps I ought to say exi',
is clogged. It must, settle there, and
gradually become discolored. When
this has happened, either through an
excess of impure matter in the blood,
through the injuadicious use of grease
and clogging cosmetics, there is noth
ing for it but to use such remedies as
will cleanse the outer cuticle thorough
ly, leaving a clear, fresb, surface. You
have all noticed how white and fair
the hands, and usually the face, look
after a long illness. You know also
that owing to various causes the skin
usually peels during an illness. The
old enticle - being removed, the fresh
I one which is underneath, appears free
We require, therefore; something to
remove this dead or clogged cuticle.
We do not need to do all in our power
to keep it on by constantly greasing
and powdering it, but to get rid of it.
When the old and disfigured outer
skin is removed, the use of ordinary
soap and water should keep it fresh
and bright, unless there is an unusual
amount of impurity in the blood If
the blood is impure no good will be
done by taking such medicines as draw
the impure matter b-ack into the sys
tem. A lady wrote to me a short time
ago that she was greatly troubled with
an eruption, which disappeared when
her doctor gave her medicine for it,
bat that the disappearance always
made her so ill that the eruption was
really a sign of health. Now this was
a direct proof of the correctness of my
theory. Nature was laboring to
throw off tne imnure matter. She
threw it to the surface, where, because
the pores were clogged, it could not
escape. There it remained for want
of an outlet. Then medicine was takenl
to get rid of the disfigurement; then
the poistnous matter was all drawn
back into the system. How much
better it wo.'ld have been if it had
beeu cleared from the surface and Na
tre's own hint takenl
A strong blistering lotion is not
needed. What is wanted is a carefully
prepared astringent lotion, which by
gradually removing the outer cuticle,
will, as I have said, leave the skin
fresn and smooth.
1 have spoken simply, for there is
no occasion here for me to enter into
a scientific disquisition on the nature
and structure of the skin. 'lf I hav:
sueceeded in impressing upon ladies
the importance of my theory, I shall
be quite satisfied. One thing I may
say, that if only one tithe of the letters
thai I receive" complaining of the
spoiled condition of the skin through
'orts of greasing and clog
ging prepar obe published
enire, there would be no 4on
me to preach the gospel of hardening
the skin; the letters would be more
eloquent than any words of mine.
