RIPENING OF WINE.
How tho Juice of tho Grape Is Treated
The w ine in Switzerland is loft in the
casks till the following birinr, and it
is here that fermentation takes place
and the mout is converted into wine,
says the Cornhill Magazine. The
change begins almost immediately;
the liquid becomes turbid, carbolic
acid gas is evolved, a scum is thrown
up on the surface and the temperature
rises. A climax is reached;. the intensity
of the fermentation diminishes,
subsides; the scum settles as a slimy
deposit at the bottom of the cask and
a clear yellow liquid is left above. The
grape sugar lias almost entirely disappeared,
a corresponding amount of alcohol
has taken its place, and the sweet
taste of the mout has Riven place to the
characteristic vinous flavor of the
In the early stages of fermentation
enormous quantities of carbonic acid
pas ate given olf, and huge fires are
made in the cellars to drive it away.
Hut at the time I write of (October,
1893), when the vintage "was the finest
of the century-, when barrels to hold
mout could not Taa purchased for love
or money, when every cellar on the
lake from Geneva to Villeneuvo was
packed with casks of mout, so great
w as the amount of carbonic acid gas

several deaths from suffocation
took place among tho workers. In the
spring the wine is drawn off clear into
other "barrels, then bottled; vin
is not bottled at all, but bimply
draw n from the wood. This is the wine
sold -at all fhe little wineshops with
w'hich Switzerland abounds. It is
drawn off into .quaint little glass decanters
containing half a liter each,
and so served to the mnhurrying Swiss,
who drink it round little tables under

"Proper Care In Handling; to Prevent Accidents.
A. good sportsman is familiar -with his
piece, and brave enough to be afraid of
it, says Harper's Round Table. From
the time lie takes it out of the case the
muzzle of the barrels is on his mind until
he has taken it to pieces, cleaned it,
and put it away in his case. 'When
he starts out in the morning, he take's
out the barrels, and pointing them towards
the earth -as Tie holds them in
his left hand, he springs the stock into
its place with his Tight- Then having
fixed on .the little piece of wood which
clinches 'the "two parts together, he
passes his right arm around the barrels,
so that as he carries it the stock points
up and behind him atari angle of about
forty-five degrees, and the barrels
point down toward the earth at a similar
angle in front of him. Around his
waist or in his pockets he carries cartridges.

Where he expects to find game. If he
has to drie to the proper woods or the

pointing out toward the rear, never
once allowing it to point towards hira

by. If he is near enough to the

About tho Iternnrkahle Kites Made IiJ the
Japanese anil Chinese.
In ihe making of kites shape is no
consideration. A square,, circle, man,
star, ifish, dragon, horse or shield w ill
fly equally well, but they must be
equally proportioned. In Japan one
sees a whole menagerie at once in the
air horses, cows.moukej s, bats, fishes,
crows and snakes, as w ell as dragons,
bahies w hich cry, boys w ith their arms
and legs spread out, hunters and soldier!.
"Fighting kites"1 are seen everywhere
in both China and Japan.
The armed kite is usually made about
two and a half feet high andcoered
with cambric or silk. The tail may be
made of strips of bright-colored cloth
about one inch wide, secuiely tied in
the middle to a strong twine. Tho destructive
part of this kite lies in
the tail, to which arc attached sharp
pieces of broken glass called knhes.
Fasten three of these knives together
with wax, so that each shall point in a
different direction, bind on three slips
of thin wood lengthwise to hold the
wax and glass flimly, and cover with
cloth or kid.
A much simpler w eapon is made by
dipping tho ten feet of string next to
the kite in glue and then rolling it in
pounded glass until thickly coated with
a glistening armor of sharp points. The
object with both is, of to cut
jour opponent's string. The skillful
maneuvering which this requires is
very good practice in training one to
aet quickly. It is considered dishonorable
to cut an unarmed kite.
Is the blacksmith's trademark a
scowl? A writer on "Trades and Faces,"
in Dlackwood's Magazine finds the
following to say about him: In most
blacksmiths the constant exercise of
the corrugator supercili muscles causes
a permanent frown, and gives the face
a somewhat haul expression; but
"whether there is any inward and spiritual
state corresponding with this outward
and visible sign I am not quite
sure. Whether their vharacters in any
way correspond with thelr'acquircd expressions
I did not discover; there was
a giave courtesy in their demeanor
while in hospital which was singularly
dignified and pleasing, although
slightly suggestive of the politeness
of foes during an armistice.
Probably not many women know
where the powder puffs with which
alabaster brows and blushing cheeks

young swans, nnd it comes latgely from
the islands of the Ualtie sea.
