Why Furniture- Growu Shabby, \7arpo
cu'.t Cracks A Taking; Luncheon
C chemo?Baskots For Salad.
Tlio fortnightly polishing of tho fur
nitnro flgurod us u prominent item on
tho old fashioned progrnmmo of house?
work, when furnituro was vulued, per?
haps, more for its lasting qualities than
fur decorative effect. Tho very indif?
ferent treatment which is given at nrrs
eut to almost all articles of this kind,
especially whim they are left altogether
to the tender mercies of servants, leads
to the following comments by Standard
A half hearted dusting, with now and
then a wining with a (lamp cloth, is
tho extent of tho efforts of most domes?
tics, and when scratches, stains and
breaks occur tho urticlo marred is rele?
gated to tho storohoueo or auction room,
or else loft to grow nioro and inoro un
sightly and shabby until it becomes ut?
Furnaco und stoiiin heut uro to a largo
degree responsible for tbo cracking and
warping of the lighter kinds of furni?
ture, especially bamboo. And to coun?
teract tho ill effects of tho BatUO they
should he, rubbed regularly with equal
parts of linseed oil and turpentine, ap?
plied with a flannel and then rubbed in
with a soft cloth. Bamboo is also im?
proved by an occasional wash with cold
water, hut should bo thoroughly dried
Mahogany, rosewood or black walnut
should be rubbed with linseed oil or
crude petroleum, a very little being put
on at a time and rubbed in thoroughly
until tho snrfaco shines like a mirror.
It' the rnbbing is done once every two
weoks, it is not at all difficult to got a
good shine in n short time, but the tirst
application may require longer.
Any of the natural woods that are not
Tarnished can be polished in tho sann?
way, but varnished surfaces should bo
washed with wider in which tea leaves
have been steeped for half an hour.
This will make them much brighter
than if washed with soap and water,
and, unlike the latter, it will not remove
tho gloss. When the varnished furnituro
becomes scratched, the spots should bo
gouu over with a earners hair brush and
shellac varnish until they disappear.
Nothing should be allowed to touch tho
places until the application is thorough?
If a small splinter of wood is knocked
off of a bureau or chair, glue it on again
with a little liquid glue, and if try?
edges show white color them with
paint to match tho rest of the wood
When this is dry, varnish, anil the break
will hardly be perceptible. If the broken
piece is large and where it is likley to
bo hit ami knocked off again, in addi?
tion to the glue b'cenro it in position
with sumll brads.
Leather trimmings, which have sack
a persistent way of separating them?
selves from wood, may be securely ro
fastened by means of a paste made of
melted India rubber mixed with shellac
varnish. Tho leather itself oftu be made
to look almost like new by be|Ng washed
with warm milk. This is specially
good for leather seats or louogn cover*
A Hall Seat.
A hall seat, seems to be what is need?
ed in many bulls, but every housekeeper
cannot afford an old oak or mahogany
settee or even have one built, of pine and
stained to match the woodwork in the
room. An exchange suggests that a
plain wooden bench, such as is to be
found in every house furnishing store,
stained to imitate cherry or oak, makes
a nice looking settee. Make a box cush?
ion for the top, covering it with sumptu?
ously colored cretonne, corduroy or somo
inexpensive material, tufting it. by tack?
ing down with covered buttons. Put a
12 inch flounce upon the cushion, box
plaiting it on, und you will have a very
comfortable ami pretty hull seat.
A Taking Luncheon Scheme.
Picture n luncheon table with a band
come service in which blue und red
predominate. See. the center of white
linen, in which tho same colors are
found among others which compose a
delightful harmony, the design being
floral. A narrow silk fringe borders the
edge. Then note Ilm white satin flag.-,
each bearing tbo name of the dish it sur?
mounts embroidered in blue silk, with a
bold dash, OS it were, of the pen be?
neath, done in tbo rich red silk. With
a vase of yellow and white roses or oth?
er rich flowers, wo could sorely count
this as one of the most taking luueheon
schemes likely to be found in a day's
Housekeepers may be interested to
know that a labor saving device has
been introduced in tho form of a large,
round, shallow basket, with handles,
called a salad basket. These baskets
are made of strong willow, widely wov?
en. Tho. fresh, green salad leaves are
placed in thi.i basket, for washing. The
basket is then dipped up and down in a
lurgo pan of water until tho leaves are
quito clean. Then, with its content!?, it
is placed in a cool spot to drain.

How Davis Knew the other Davises Wer?
After supper, when the old man and
I had lighted oar pipes, I remarked that,
ho was the fifth man of the nanio of
Davis whoso hospitality I had enjoyed
in that locality during the week, and
after describing thctu I asked if they
wero his relations, but he shook his
head, chuckled primly ami said:
"Right in mis counfy stranger,
thar's at least ten fain'lies named Da?
vis, but not a domed one of 'cm is any
rclashun tome 't all."
"Do you know them all personally?"
"Yes, but wo hain't on speak in terras
now. und I'll tell you why. 'Bout five
y'ars ago, when I wuz mighty well
fixed, all the Davisofl in the world, it
seemed to me, begun to settle around
yore, and not a day passed that sum of
'eni didn't call and claim lelashnnship.''
"And all of them impostors, ehr"
"Pur shore!" ho exclaimed, warm?
ing up to his subject. "At fust 1 WUZ
mighty glad to see 'em and reckoned
they uiougbt be related to me, but when
I'd bring up our fam'ly history they
knew not bin about it. They jest beat
around the bush until my last drap of
licker wuz gone and then took a scoot.
Why, it got so inter awhile that 1 had
to stand outside with a club all day
a-drivin Davis fani'lies away."
"How did you liually get rid of
"By jest tirin 'em out, I reckon.
When the Davises as hadn't bin yere
cum along, I'd shut 'em up with fam'ly
history, and when the Davises as had
bin yere cutu back fur more licker I'd
use the club. What convinced mo more
than anything else that they wuzn't my
relashuus wu/. this: I had about a doy.en
suck in pigs and seven or eight fine j
calves on the place, and every timo u
Davis went, ho took one of those pigs
"And that proved it, oh?" I asked as
he paused there.
"In course!" ho snapped. "Do you
s'pose ono of my relashuus would stoop
as low as that? Waal, I reckon not,
stranger. Ono of my relashuus would
huvo taken n calf every time!"?New
York Sunday Journal.
He Was There Once.
The other day one of tho Illinois la

as a representative from that state in
congress was assisting to do tho honors
at a tea, and a quiet representative, who
represents a southern constituency, wan?
dered in and foil into tho Illinois wom?
an's hospitable hands. She tried to do
the .agreeable, but the gentleman was
rather unapproachable. Finally, over
an infinitesimal cup of tea and a "bis?
cuit ," they got. to talking of Chicago.
"It is the most wonderful city in the
world," declared tho lady. "Were you
"Um?er?well, yes, once," was the
hesitat ing reply.
"Oh, how delightful!" she responded
animatedly. "Didn't yon like it? Do
tell mo how it impressed you."
"Well, to tell tho truth," ho replied
in his soft .southern drawl, "it didn't,
please me very well. 1 was urgently
forced to go on business that could not
hi' doforrcd. I was very closely confined
while there, and when it was concluded
1 was so glut) to get away that I saw
but. little of the city. "
'Oil, thai is too bad!" she returned
feelingly. "How long ago was it, ami
where did you stop?"
it was in I80H, ami I was a prisoner
in Camp Douglas, with a fence so high
about it that I couldn't scoover." Then
