A lively experience with a twelve
foot striped shark came to Boatmen
Harry Johnson and Bob Barnard, re?
lates the San Francisco Chronicle,
luey were fishing between Mission
Rock and Goat Island when they saw
the shark. It followed them persist?
ently, and once when it came boldly
up to the boat the boatmen set upon it
with oars, stretcher and gaff. A blow
from the big brute's tail came near
capsizing the Whitehall. Barnard
barely escaped being drawn Into the
sea through sinking the gaff into the
bony of the shark, which set off at a
terrible speed, pulling the boat after
him. It was so weak from the blows
and from loss of blood that it was
finally conquered. In the fight the
boatmen broke one oar and a stretcher.

WHAT WOMEN HAVE TO DO.
How Would Moa Uko to Have the
Job?
Not many persons can do a dozen
different things ia one day and do
them all equally well, or, indeed, do
any of them well, says the Philadel?
phia Times. And yet the average
housekeeper has a dozen?oh, more, a
Ecore or a hundred duties of radically
different natures, and if she fails in
one she falls short of the requirements
of society and her family. Mrs. De Jar
nette well expressed this idea before
the San Jose institute when she said:
"If a man goes into business, docs
he assume the duties of head clerk,
bookkeeper, cash boy, collector and
janitor? And if he could do so?which
he cannot and would not even con?
sider?would he look his best, act most
Agreeable, keep a perpetual smile and
have his place of business spotless?
Let us look at woman. She enters
business?marriage?does she assume
duties of head housekeeper, cook,
seamstress, laundress, nurse, tutor and
outside man? And when she does?
for she usually does?can she keep
her house clean, her temper serene,
buttons sewed on, remove all thoughts
of care from her husband's heart, keep
her prettiest clothes on and scented
with violet and lavender, her sweetest
Emile on and her mouth puckered np
for a kiss??for they only come when
expected, f?<* when we yearn lol

angeli themselves? sue tn n't run all
the spacial departments of a complex
marriage with a menagerie of child?

home when twilight falls to claim
every iota of reserve vitality left, I
tell you she will either have to call
in some specialist derai-semi-occasion
ally or else have mo'e simple food, di
away with kitchen fads, let the hus?
band help with the little one3 and feel
a burden of responsibility."

Flesh Meat For Poultry.
If you cannot get fresh meat for
four poultry, or if the expense is ap?
parently too great, use the commer?
cial ground meat. Fish is also ex?
cellent for ducks if the eggs are to ba
used for hatching, and ground fish
will bo very acceptable to them. In
the winter season, when grain is
largely used, meat or fish will serve
to supply the deficiency of nitrogen.
One cent a pound ia about the cost
for ground meat or fish, and they are
veiT cheap, even at double the price.
Cause of Decay in Trees.
It really seems that diseases aud
premature decay of almost every kiud
of fruit trees are on the increase, de?
spite the efforts and methods em?
ployed to promote their health and
vigor. New diseases aro multiplying
or old ones are increasing iu virulence
and power. This is mainly to be at?
tributed to the vitality of the tree, aud
this, we believe, mainly arises from
improper cultivation or treatment of
the tree. Much of this trouble with
trees must come from tho manner of
budding and grafting, the kiud of soil
in which they are plauted aud the
method of pruning.?The Epitomist.
Annual Crop For tho Orchard.
Unless it is desirable to reduce the
growth of a too rampant young orchard
aud set it to bearing, some annual
crop is better for tho well beiug of an
orchard thau seeding it with clover.
If the land lacks fertility sow peas on
it, and let them be harvested by
turning hogs iu to feed them down%
That will doubly manure the soil, the
hogs beiug loft unringed and thus at
liberty to cover their excrement with
soil, and the nodules on pea roots
serving to supply the soil with avail?
able nitrogen just as clover would do.
If the land is already too rich, keep a
buckwheat crop on it iu summer,
plowing it nuder very lightly the last
of June. This will keep the soil loose
and light without enriching it much.
But so soon as the young trees get to
bearing, the peas will make the soil
none too rich, aud the trees should
have at the same time dressings of
potash and phosphate, which all trees
that bear fruit every year need in
order to produce a crop.
I'olatt in Feeding Stock.
Much of the improvement made in
auimals by domestication is the effeo!;
of the better caro aud more regular
rations which domestic stock secures.
It is far less able to care for itself, be?
cause of beiug thus for generations
provided with more and better food
than it could secure without man's
aid. This regular supply of nutritious
food increases the auimal's digestive
powers, so that it can make use of all
that i& takeu into the stomach. Wild
animals are seldom fat. When hogs
are allowed to run wild as they do in
the Southern States, they are long
legged, long bodied aud always lean.
Their flesh is mostly made from wild
nuts and roots eaten in the woods,
with some corn gained by depreda?
tions on. tho fields of fai mers iu the
neighborhood where the wild hog
abounds. This razor-back pork hast
high reputation for delicacy of flavor,
and its hann aro exported in largo
amounts and sol I after being cured at
higher prices than can be got for the
pork made from localities where corn
and other grains are the staple ration.

Good Way to Salt Butter.
Many people fail of getting butter
well and evenly salted, because of
working their butter too much beforo
putting iu tho salt. There is not
water enough in tho butter to dissolve
I the salt and carry it through the but?
ter. We used to add our salt, one to
one and a half ounces to the pound of
J butter, as soon as the water had
j drained off after last washing, aud be?
foro tho butler was worked at all. In
j working wc would work out some of
j tho salt, but when working was com
i ploted the salt was evenly through the
! butter, aud wo never had it come out
to stand upon the outside of the lump.
And we never had streaked or mottled
butter, which is caused by uueveu
Baiting. The white specks in butter
are another thing, aud with us were
simply particles of cream that by ex?
posure to a draught of air had become
too tough, to break, but gathered with
the butter.
We never believed in trying to salt
butter with briue. There should be
water enough in the butter to dissolve
the salt, and that is all that is needed,
excepting to leavo that water and salt
in tho butter after it is worked.?

Tesl of .'Manuro yb. Fertilizers.
At the Glasgow Technical College
Farm they tried twenty tons of ma?
nure against ten tons of the same, and
ten tons reinforced by either 112
pounds sulphate of jjotash, or the
same of sulphate of ammonia, or H8
pounds of superphosphate, or the sui
phate of ammonia with one of the
other two, or the three combined. The
twenty tons of stable manure produced
one ton eleven hundredweight (re?
member hundredwe'ghts there aro 112
pouuds) more than teutons of manure.
Adding either potash or phosphate to
the teu tons of manure increased the
crop 89G pounds, while adding nitro?
gen increased it 1120 pounds. Adding
both nitrogen and potash increased it
2016 pouuds, adding nitrogen and
phosphate increased it 2352 pounds,
and adding all the three increased it
3140 pounds; or within 336 pounds of
as much as was raised on the twenty
tons of manure. Where no manure
was used the yield was 4} tons, or
nearly 180 bushels to the acre, which
was more than doubled by the use of
twenij tons of manure, ot by ten tons
of manure, or by ten tous of manure
and the three fertilizers combined,
772 pouuds per acre.
Weed Ont the Useless Croppers*
The man that produces a variety of
vegetables to sell in the cities and
towns needs to keep a close account
with each crop raised. By this
method alone can lie know what crops
aro paying him a profit and what crops
are running him into debt. If he
keeps a strict account he will find
that he has some useless croppers.
These useless croppers merely take
the fertility from the land, eat up the
labor of the farmer and give nothing
in return. This is not the blamo of
tho particular crops that are found to
be unprofitable. Usually lands differ
so greatly in their mechanical con?
struction and in the natural elements
they contain that the same set of
plante will show up quite differently
on different pieces of land. In other
words, each lot of land will be found
to be specially adapted to only a lim?
ited number of plants. It is the
business of the farmer to discover
what these are and stick to them in
his future operations. As in our
dairies it has been found that half of
the cows are cared for without return?
ing a cent of profit, so in the garden
of the farmer, probably half of the
kinds of crops grown can be discard?
ed without losing the farmer a penuy,
but with a saving to him of a great
volume of labor aud care.?Farm,

lu regions where the snow does not
cover the ground too deeply, a cheap,
low structure can be built after the
plan shown in the cut, that will an?

pat on, with roof doors in tue frou!,
ebert roof. These are made with
overlapping edges to seeure tightness
against the wind and raiu. The at?
tendant stands outside and through
these roof doors cares fer the fowls,
securing the eggs from nests that are
within reach, putting in water and
scattering grain in the litter, The
whole structure is covered with tarred
or resin-sized paper, the edge.} being
securely tacked or battened with
laths. The roof is covered in the same
way.
Select a dry location, and put in
three inches of gravel upon the grouud
and keep a thick layer of chaff upon
that, aud tho inmates will scratch
away merrily for grain all winter
long. Make the building any length
desired and part off with boards?or
with netting if only females are to be
kept in the pens?before the roof is
put on. Roosts can bo put up just
out of the fowls' way when on the
floor. With care to make the roof
tight, such a building, while it costs
but little, will prove very satisfactory.
Moisture in Incubators.
One of tho hardest things to learn
in artificial incubation is to have the
proper amount of moisture. It is true
that, as a rule, we uso too much mois?
ture, but I think wo sometimes use
too little. When an egg is formed it
is intended that a certain amouut of
the contents of tho egg should evapo?
rate, as it must necessarily do. Now
if not enough of this is evaporated the
chick becomes overgrown aud nuable
to turn in its shell. Hence, the use
of too much moisture will cause al?
most full grown chicks. Then if not
enough moisture is applied too much
will be evaporated and the chick will
bo weakened or tho inside membrane
of the egg will become dry aud tough.
The quantity of moisture needed de
pends upon the season and the loca?
tion. If in a damp cellar it is quite
probable that more will be needed,
while in a dry season it is possible
that a good deal wili bo needed. All
incubators, I believe, are constructed
so that there is a constant change of
air going on all the time in tho egg
chamber. This air, being first cold
and then becoming heated, has a
greater affinity, as you might call it,
for water, and hence the moisture is
taken from the eggs if it is not sup?
plied by some other means. Even if
tho air before entering had been at
the dew point, it would, upon being
warmed, havo a tendency to take in
more moisture until the dew point is
reached inside the egg chamber. Tho
object should be to let the air evapo?
rate a rafieieai quantity of moisture
from the egg and then introduce more
moisture to keep tho air from taking
auy snore.
The moisture should not be thrown
ou the eggs, as it chills them, but it
should bo placed where all the air
that enters thc chamber will become
saturated before it has time to take
the moisture from tho eggs. If you
open tho draw and find it wet, it
shows that too much moisture is be?
ing thrown off by the moisture pans.
If y6u have trouble write to your
manufacturer and tell him what is
wrong, and he will bo able to tell you
better thau any one, or at least he
should te able. The pans should be
wide and shallow, as the more surface
there ii, the greater the evaporation.

Washington, D. C.-Ia this discourse
Dr. Talma** treats of a style Ot disorder
hot much discoursed upon and unfolds
what must be a consolation to many people;
text, Psalms Ixxvll., 4, "Thou boldest min*;
eyes waking."
Sleep is the vacation of the soul; it is tho
mind pone into tho playground of dre ims;
lt is tho relaxation of the muscles aud the
solace of tho nerves; it ls tho hush of ac?
tivities; it is tho soft curtaining or tho ey**;
it is a trance of eight hours; it is a calm?
ing of the pulses; it is a breathing much
slower, though far deeper; it ls A tempor?
ary oblivion of all carklng cares; it is the
doctor recognized by all schools of medi?
cine; it is ii divine narcotic; lt ls a com?
plete anaesthetic; lt is an angel of the
night; it ls n great mercy of God for the
human race. Lick of lt puts patients on
the tack of torture, or in the madhouse, Ol?
in tho grave. 0 blessed Sleep! No wonder
the Bible makes much of it. Through sleep'
so sound that a surgical incision of thesido
of Adam Aid not wakeu him came the host
temporal blessing ever afforded to
nan?wifely companionship. While In
sleep on a pillow of rock Jacob
caw a ladder set up, with angels coming
dowu and cliinlduu'. So "fla giveth His
beloved sleep," soliloquized the psalmist.
Solomon listens at tho door of a tired
workman and eulogizes his pillow by say?
ing, "Tho sleep of a laboring man is
sweet." Peter was calmly sleeping be?
tween the two constables that hight be?
fore lils expected assassination. Christ
was asleep in a boat on Galileo when
tossed lu the euroclydou. The annuncia?
tion wa? made to Joseph in sleep, and
death Is described as only a sleep and the
resurrection as a glorious wakening out of
sleep.
On the other hand, insomnia or sleep?
lessness is an old disorder spoken of again
and agalu in the Bible. Ahasuerus suf?
fered from it, and we read, "In that night
could not the king sleep." Joseph Hall
said of that ruler, "He that could com?
mand a hundred and seven nnd twenty
provinces could not commnud sleep.-'
Nebuchadnezzar had insomula, aud the
record i?, "His sleep brake from him "
Solomon describes this trouble and says,
"Neither day nor night soeth ho sleep
with his eyes." Asaph was its victim, for
he complains in my text that hts eyes are
open nt midnight, some mysterious power
keeping tho upper and lower lids from
joining, "Thou boldest mine eyes wak?
ing."
Of course Ibero is U unrighteous slocp,
as when Jonah, trying to escape from
duty, slept lu the sides of the ship while
the Mediterranean was iu wrath because
of that prophetic passenger; as when
Columbus in bis first voyage, exhausted
from being up many nights, gave the ship
in charge of tho steersman aud the crew,
who, b aving the management cl tho ves?
sel to boys, went to sleep and allowed the
ship to striko on the sand banks of St.
Thomas: ns when the sentinel goes lo
?loop at lils post, ondangerlug tho whole
army; as when tho sluggard, who accom?
plishes nothing the day before he went to
sleep and will accomplish nothing tho day
after he wakes, (ills up Solomon's picture
of him as bo yawns out. "A little sleep end
a little slumber and a little folding of thc
bauds to sleop." But sleep at the right
time and amid the right circumstances,
can you imagine anything moro blossel?
If sleep, according to sacred and profane
literature, is an emblem of death, the
morning to all refreshed slumberers 1?
a resurrection.
Remark tho first: If you have escape 1
tho Insomnia, spoken of lu tho text, thank
God. Hero and there one can commnud
sleep, aud it comes the mlnutohe orders lt
and departs at tho minute ho wishes lt to
go, ns Napoleon when ho wrote: "Different
attars are arranged in my bed as In draw?
ers. When I wish to Interrupt one train of
thought I close tho drawer which contains
? ? j-igcj ftmi Opon that which contains
anu.. M They do not mix together or in?
convenience me. I havo nev r been kept
nwakt byan Involuntary preoccupation of
mind. When I wish for repose 1 shut up
nil the drawers, and I ara asleep. I huve
always slept when I wanted rest, lind al?
most at will." But I think In most cases
we f<-el that sleop ls not tho result of a res?
olution, hut a direct gift from God. You
cannot purchase lt. A great French finan?
cier cried out, "Alas, why Is there no sleep
to besold?"
Remark the second: Consider among the
Worst crimes the robbery of ourselves or
others of this mercy of slumber. Much
ruinous doctrine bas been inculcat?d on
this subject. Thomas Moore gave poor ad?
vice when lie said, "The best way to
lengthen our days ls to steal a few hours
from the night." We are told that, though
they did their work at night. Copernicus
lived to be seventy-three years of age, and
Galilei seventy-eight years, and Herschel
eighty-four years. Yes, but the reason was
they wero all stur bunters, nnd the only
time for bunting stars ls at night. Prob?
ably they slept by day. The night was
made for slumber. The worst lamp a stu?
dent can have is "tho midnight lamp "
Lord Brougham never passed more than
four hours of the night abed, and Justinian,
after one hour of sleep, would rise from
his couch. Bat you are neither a Justinian
nor a Lord Brougham. Let not the absurd
apotheosis ot early rising Induce you to
the abbreviation of sleep. Get up when
you aro slept out unless circumstances
compel otherwise. Have no alarm clock
making its nerve tearing racket at 4
o'clock in tho morning, unless special rea?
sons demand the forsaking of your pillow
r.t that hour. Most of the theories about
early rising we lnheritea from times wheii
people retired at 8 or 9 o'clock In the oveu
lng. Such early retirement ls impossible
In our own times for those who aro taking
part In the great activities of life. There
ls no virtue In the mere act of early rising.
It all depends upon what you do after you
get up. It would be better for the world if
some people never wakened at all.
Remark the third: All those ought to bc
comforted who by overwork In right direc?
tions have como to insomnia. In nil occu?
pations and professions there are time3
whea a special draft Is made upou tho ner?
vous energy. There are thousands of men
and women who cannot sleep because they
were Injured by overwork in some time of
domestic or political or religious exigency.
Mothers who, after taking a whole family
of children through the disorders that are
svre to strike tho nursery, have been left
physical wrecks, and one entire night of
slumber is to thom a rarity, If not an im?
possibility. Tho attorney at law, who,
through a long trial in poorly ventilated
courtroom, has stood for weeks battling
for the rights of widows and orphans or
for the life of a client In whose luuocenco
ho is confident, though all the circum?
stances aro unfavorable. In his room ho
tries the case nil night long aud every night
when he would like to be slumbering. Tho
physician, in time of epidemic, worn out in
saving tho lives of wholo families and fall
log In lils attempts to sleep at night be?
tween the jangliugs of his doorbell. Tho
merchant who has experienced panics,
when the banks went down and Wall street
became a pandemonium and there- was a
possibility that the next day he would be
penniless?that night with no moro possi?
bility of gaining sleep than if such a bles:
ing had never touched our planet.
Remark tho fourth: Insomnia ls no sign
of divine displeasure. Martin Luther had
distressing lusomnia aud wrote, "When I
wake up in the night, tho devil immedi?
ately comes and disputes with nie and gives
me strange thoughts until at last I grow
enraged beyond endurauco and give him
ill words." That consecrated champion
or everything good, Dr. Stepheu H. Tyng,
Sr., in lils autobiography says that the only
encouragement ho had to thtuk ho would
sleep at night wm tho fact that he bad cot
slopt tho night before.
Wakefulness may bi au opportunity for
prayer, opportunity for protitnhle reflec?
tion, opportunity for kindling bright ex?
pectations of tho world, where there- is no
night and whore slumber will have no
uses. God thinks just as much of you
when you got but three or four hours of
fleep as wheu at night yon get eight or
nine hours.
Remark tho fifth: L-)t all InnOJiuists
know for their consolation tint sotn^
peoplo sleep more rapidly thii'i others, as
much In one hour as other* do iu two, and
lianne do not require ai ioug a lime in un?
consciousness. In a boole on the subject ot
Health ve.*?rs nco I saw this fad stated, by a.
Worst Day of the Week.
A German statistician has come to
the rescue of those persons who do not
share the widespread superstition that
Friday is the most unlucky day of the
week. A short time ago he determined
to make a scientific investigation of
the question, utilizing for the purpose,
among other things, the records of the
department of compulsory insurance.
The most fatal or unfortunate week
day, according to the investigator, is
oat Friday, but Monday. Sixteen and
seventy-four hundredths per cent of all
accidents, lt seems, occurred on that
day, 13.51 per cent on Tuesday, 16.31
per cent on Wednesday, 15.47 per cent
on Thursday, 18.38 per cent on Friday,
the same on Saturday and 2.69 per cent
on Sunday. It is interesting, however,
to know that the compiler attributes
the large relative number of accidents
on Monday to "the excessive amount of
liquor consumed on Sunday."?Stray
Stories.
celebrated medical scientist: Some peoplo
do everything quick-thoy eat quick, they
walk quick, they think quick, and of
course they sleep quick. An express trala
can go as far in thirty minutes ns a wnv
train In sixty minutes, People of rapid
temperaments ought not to expect it a/hole
night to do the work of recuperation willett
slow temperaments require. Instead ot
making It a matter ot irritation and alarm
be a Christian philosopher and set down
lhl3 abbreviation ut somuoleuce as a matter
of temperament.
Remark tho sixth: Tho aged lusomuists
should understand that if their eyos aro
held waking thoy do not require as much
sleep as once they did. Solomon, who Ii
knowledge was thousands of years ahead
of his time In his wondrous description ot
old age, iccognizcs this fact. He not only
speaks of the difficulty of mastication ci
the part ot thonged when be says, "The
grinders co:iso beeta Se they aro few," and
of tile octogenarian's caution in getting up
ii ladder ot stauding on a scaffolding, say?
ing, 'They .shall be afraid of that which is
high," and speaks of Hie whiteness of tho
bair by comparing it lo a tree that has
white blossoms, sayiug, "The almond tree
shnll flourish," aud speaks of the.spinal
cord,which ls the color of silver, and which
relaxes in old age, giving the tremor,*."
the bead, saying, "The silver cord
be loosed." But he says of the
need, "He shall rise up at tho voles o.'
tho bird;" that is about half past 4
in tho summer time, an appropriate hom
for tho bird to rise, for lie goes to his
nest or bough nt half past 7 in tbeeveulng.
But tho human mechanism has been so
arranged that after it lins been running a
good while a change takes place, and in?
stead of tho almost perpetual sleep of the
babe and tim nine hours requisite in mid?
life six hours will do foi tho aged, and "he
shall rise up at t ie voice ot the bird." Let
all aged men and women remember that
they have been permitted to do a great
deal of sleeping lu their time aud that if
they do not sleep so well now ns they used
to It ls because they do not require so much
sleep.
Remark tho seventh: Insomnia is prob?
ably it wnrulug that you had better mod?
erate your work. .Most of those engaged
In employments that pull on nerve and
braiu are tempted to omit necessary rest
and sleeplessness calls a half. Even their
pleasuring turu3 to work. Ari Sir Joshua
Reynolds, the gre it painter, taking a walk
with ii friend, met a sun browned peasant
boy and said, "I mu-t go home aud deepen
the coloring of my infant Hercules." Tho
sun browned boy suggested an im?
provement in a great picture. ' By
the lime most peoplo have reached
midlife, if they have behaved
well more door3 of opportunity open bo
fore them than they ought to enter.
Power to decline, power to say "No,"
they shoal!now cultivate. Wheu n min
is determined to be useful nnd satan can?

Remark the eighth: All tho victims ol
Insomnia ought to be console I with the
fact that they will have ti goo 1, long sleep
after ft while. Sacred aud profane litera?
ture nguiu mid again '?peak of that last
sleep. God knew that the human rac.)
would be disposed to make a great ado
about exit from this world, and so Ho In?
spires Job aud David aud Daniel nnd Join:
and Paul lo call that condition "sleep."
When at Bethany tho brother who was the
support of his sisters after their father and
mother were gone had himself expired,
Christ cried out In regard to him,
"Ho Is uot dead, but sleepeth." Cheer?
ing thought to all poor sleepers, for
that will be a pleasant sleep, ic
duced ?y no narcotic, disturbed by no
frightful dream, interrupted by no harsh
sound. Better I hun any sleep you ever
took, O child of God, will be the last sleep.
In your slumbers your home may be In?
vaded by burglars and your treasures car?
ried off but while here nnd there, ia on;
case out of millions, tho resurrectionist
may disturb tho pillow of dust the last
sleep ls almost sure td be kept from inva?
sion. Tiiero will be no burglary of tho tomb.
And lt will be a refreshing sleep. You have
sometimes risen la the morning more weary
thau when you laid down at night, but
waking from the sleep of which I speak
the last fatigue, tho last ache, the last
worriment, will be forever gone. Oh, what
a refreshing sleep!
So my hearer, my reader, "Good night!'
May God give you such sleep to-night ns
Is best for you, and If you wake too soon
may He lill your soul with reminiscences
ano; expectations that will be better than
slumber. Goodnight! Having in prayer,
kneeling at the bedside, committed yom
self uni all yours to the keeping of the
slumberless God, fear uothing. The
pestilence that walketh iu darkness will
not cross your doorstlll, and you need uo'.
ho afraid of evil tidings. Good night!
May you have no such experience US
Job had when he said, "Thou searest
me with dreams nnd terrifies me through
visions." If you dream at till, may it be a
vision of reunions aud congratulations,
and, waking, may you lind somo of them
true. Good night! Aud when you come
to tho best sleep, tho blissful sleep, the last
sleep, may you be "bio to turn nnd say to
ujl the cures and fatigues nnd bereave?
ments nnd pangs ot a lifetime. "Good
nl^ht!" and your kindred, standiug around
your illumined pillow, give you hopeful
though sorrowful farewell as you move out
from their loving embrace into the bosom
of a welcoming God. Good night! Good

IVORY SOAP PASTE.
In fifteen minutes, with only a cake of Ivory Soap and water,
you eau make a better- cleansing paste than you can buy.
Ivory Soap Paste will take spots from clothing; and will clean
carpets, rugs, kid gloves, slippers, patent, enamel, russet leather and
canvas shoes, leather belts, painted wood-work and furniture. The
special value of Ivory Soap in this form arises from the fact that it
can be used with a damp sponge or cloth to cleanse many articles
that cannot be washed because they will not stand the free applica?
tion of water.
DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING.?To one pint of bolling water add one and one-half ounce*
(one-quarter of the small size cake) of Ivory Soap cut Into shavings, boil five minutes after the soap ls
thoroughly dissolved. Remove from the fire and cool in convenient dishes (not tin). It will keep well
In an air-tight class Jar.

An Innocent Critic.
Governor Roosevelt is always glad
Df a laugh. A short time ago he enjoy?
ed an opportunity and paid for it. The
incident happened while he was visit?
ing Cornell University during a con
.ontion. The students, glad of a chance
to display their enthusiasm, enter
ained the governor at one of the fra
:ernlty houses. Just as he was about
o leave one of his staff said to him:
'Governor, the boys have the founda
:ion of a capital library, and I think
hey would appreciate a copy of your
Rough Riders.'" "All right, boys,"
said the governor, heartily. "I'll bc
rlad to send you a copy with my com?
pliments. The book would be but a
small return for your hospitality."
Whereupon one of the students broke
n excitedly: "That's so, governor, I've
?ead it."

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
This is what the boy wrote about tho
dachshund: Tho doekshound ls a dog
notwithstandin' appeerencis. He has
fore legn. two in front an' two behind,
an' they aint on speekin' terms. I
wunst made a doekshound out of a
cowcumher an' fore marchi?, an' lt
lookt ns naeheral aa life. Dockshounds
ls rarely intelligent ennsiderin' thare
=haip. Thare brains bein' so far away
from thare tales it bothers them sum
to wag tho lattur. I wunst noo a
lockshound who wai too impashunt
to wate till he rood signal the hole
length of lils hoddy when he wanted
to wag his talo. so he maid it. up waa
his tale thet when lie wanted It to
wag he would shake his rite ear, an'
when the tale seen it shake it wood
wag. But as fer nie, gimme a bull pup
with a peddygree."
