Carious Regu'ations of the Force of 3033
on Duty at Pek.a.
In costume a Chinese policeman Is
something between a circus clown and
a football player. His breoches are
always baggy, and very wel wadded
so clumsy you -.7onder how lie gets
around in them, particularly when. as
is often the case. he wears a coat. also
thick and clumsy, coming well below
the knees. Dark blue is the plovailing
color, set off with bauds and facings
of lighter blue, red. green. naroon and
brown. but never yellow. That Is the
sacred or royal hue, permitted to no
body below the rank of a Viceroy.
In the treaty ports, that is to say
those open to foreign influence and
commerce, the police force is largely
made up of Sikhs from northern India.
The reason, perhaps is that the
- Chinese themselves ae essentially un
warlike, they have a proverb to the
effect that "no good man is ever a
soldier." As men in the pay of the
Chinese Government. whether natives
or not, they have taken an active part
in the present trouble in China.
The police rank officially as gend
armerie. In Pekin the nead of them
Is always a Manchu. Policemen must
be plentier than blackberries in the
Chinese capital. The sacred or im
perial walled city -keeps between fif
teen and twenty thousand of them.
This walled city is two miles square,
with two great gates in each wall
face, half a mile from the corners. and
a mile from each other. Broad streets
stretch straight from one to another,
thus cutting the space inside into a
big nine-block. Police stations are
scattered all along the nine squares,
especially around their outer edges,
which face upon the passway inside
the wall. The head of the police has
charge of all the city gates. They are
nine In number-since the side next
the palace proper has an extra gate
In'-the exact middle of the two-mile
wall. Policemen in this the Tartar
City belong to what is known as the
Eight Banner Corps. They do not
carry arms, not even so much as the
baton of a civilized officer, but keep
swords, spears. guns and cutlasses In
racks at'the stations, and make a rush
for them when they hear the signal
gun. This Is fired by an officer whose
special charge it is, either upon orders

Toasting bread until it become:
brown largely converts the starch intl

oughly they are toasted, the easier di.

of the slice of bread are thoroughly

to a deep brown color-it will be found
to be still more easily digested.
The Care of House Plants.
In caring for house plants it Is .1,
good idea to treat them much as they
would be treated out of doors. It
doesn't rain every (lay, therefore it
cannot be necessary that they should
be deluged every twenty-four hours.
To keep the plants wet all the time
makes them grow quickly but poorly.
They may spindle up, but the growth
is not luxuriant. On the other hand
the soil should never be allowed to be
come so dry as to injure the roots. Do
not water the plants too-frequently,
but give them plenty of water at inter
vals. Pour over them enough so that
the soil becomes soaked and the water
oozes out from the aperture In the bot
ton of the pot. Then do not water
them again until the soil looks dry.
Pictures in the Nursery.
As is well known discrimination in
applying knowledge is as important as
the knowledge itself. In a nursery
seen recently, the walls were covered
with one of the papers specially de
signed for nurseries, showing in con
stant i-epetition many of the ,haracters
famed in children's stories. The paper
was a study for the children, und,
having been provided, It should have
been left to be studied. Instead, the
walls were well covered with pictures,
good, bad and indifferent, an environ
ment which must have been extreme
ly distracting to the children who
passed most of their time in the room.
Either a few good pictures against an
almost plain background, or the riot
of fairytale happenings alone put upon
the walls for tae occupation and inter
est of the children, would have been a
much better arrangement.
Cleaning the OI LAUnP.
Every good housekeeper who enjoys
the light from a good oil lamp should.
keep always on hand a little bi'ush to
clean the holes in the burners, the
lungs of the lamp. Tue lamp should
be taken apari. every day. That Is, it
should be opened to allow the gas to
escape, and then carefully filed. There
is no danger-of an explosion if this is
done. The reservoirs should b~e washed
out once a week to insure a clear flame.

Hrow to:clean Brass.
Fine Calias sand mixed with a little,
oil of tartar in a strong solution of
soda; the articles to be well scoured
with this mixture, then dried and pol
ished with a leather dipped in whiting.
For brass, It depends a good deal on
whether it is lacquered or not. In the
former case the best thing is to put
them into, a boiling solution of soap
and soda, and leave them in It for a
few minutes, then scrub them well
with a soft brusn,and good soap, when
the water Is just cool enough to put
your hands In; now throw the brass,
all soapy as it Is, into fresh cold water,
rinse well, dry and leather well. If
any strong chemical or cleansing pastd
is applied It will Inevitably affect the
lacquer. For ordinary brass, If very
dirty, oxalic acid is recommended, but
thisisnot a substance for Inexperience
-hands; so If the brass Is so dirty as not
to yield to the same tratment as is
recommended for the lacquered brass,
or to any good brass polishing paste,
have it properly cleaned by a compe
tent workman and thenceforward keep
It clean. This is not at all difficult, if
dirt and stains are not left to harden
on and eat into the metal.

Crusade Against T pping.
According to an almost incrediile

the tip system, and the substitution
for It of wages paid in the regular
