The SOserra andlrls and the Coming
Contest .Bctweon.Theni.
Tha fact that there will be no interna
tional yacht race this year serves "to con
centrate the attention of yachtsmen more
upon local yachting contests. But there
Trill be a race which, when it takes place,
will attract the attention of all those en
thusiasts who are interested in the great
question of the English vs. the American
build of "boat. This is the race which will
take place between the Minerva and the
Liris under the auspices of the Larchmont
Yacht club. The interest which centers
around this match is due to the fact that
the jMine.a, though now owned in Amer
ica, is an English buiit. boat, while the
Liris is a good type of the American keel
slodj). The date of the races has not yet
been settled, but it is understood that they
will take place, between'tbo Larchmont an
nual races in July and the cruise of the
"Sew York Yacht club, which begins early
in August. The courses of the match are
to bo, forthe first race, ten miles to wind
ward or leeward and return.
The second race will be over the thirty
mile course of the Larchmont Yacht club,
and the third, if one is necossary, will be
over tho same coarsens the second. The
prize is to bo a cash one of large amount,
and the club will add a purse or prize to
the private one.
The cntter Minerva wss launched in the
fall of 138S, and crossed the Atlantic soon
after, oh her own bottom, under command
of Capt. Charlie Barr, a brother of the fa
mous skipper of the Thistle. Her length
over all is 54 feet, on the water lino 39
feet 11 inches, beam 10 feet 6 inches,
draught 9 feet and present sail area 2,750
square feet. She was recently purchased by
John Lee Carroll, Jr., from Admiral
Charles Tweed, of the Corinthian Yacht
In the races which were sailed last year
against the Minerva she walked away
from all competitors with the single ex
ception of tho Liris, which beat her by six
minutes in the Oyster bay regatta. The
Liris was designed by a young naval archi
tect, was launched last spring and sailed
her maiden race in the regatta of tho New
York Yacht-club. Her length over all is
fc7 feet, on the water line .T9 feet 11 inches,
breadth of beam 13 feet 3 inches, draught
9 feet and sail area 3,S00 square feet, which
is 300 feet lcs3 than she had last year. Ac
cording to tho Seawanhaka rule of timo
allowance, tho Liris will allow tho Minerva
two minutes and forty seconds for a thirty
mile course.

Ways in Which Salt Can Ho Utilized.
The Ideal Sanitary House How to
Cool "Water Without Ice Edmund Bos
sell on Dress A Bedroom Fire.
A glance through some of the commence
ment programmes of Vassar college and
Mount Holyoke seminary of twenty years
ago is both amusing and significant. In half
a score the essays ran upon such topics as
"The True Woman's Mission," "Dreams,"
"Ideals," "The True Home," "Patriotism,"
"Lessons from the Stars" and others
of like sentimental nature. But bless the
dear practical soul of the young woman
of today! What has she to toll the world
when she stands in her white gown on the
graduation platform? Bead the papers and
you will see that she is interested in such
topics as these, which were offered at an
uptown school a night or two ago: "Tho
Business Woman," a plea for a fuller busi
ness education for women; "The National
Flower," "The Advantages of Novel Bead
ing," "The Giant's Shoulders," which was
a thoughtful consideration of the practical
reforms of the present day.
The sentimental young woman, charm
ing and sweet as she was, has given way to
a creature no less charming and sweet be
cause instead of having her eyes turned al
ways up to the stars she has them coolly
but helpfully fixed upon the affairs of men
and nations, and none the less graceful and
pleasing because in place of having a mind
that yearns toward "The True Woman's
Mission" she has definite and decided
opinions upon the business rights of wo
men, or the possibilities of what in Boston
is called "Christian Socialism." New York

Many Ways in Which to Utilize Salt.
If the feet are tired or painful after long
standing great relief 'can be had by bathing
them in salt water. A handful of salt to a
gallon of water is the right proportion.
Have the water as hot as can be comfort
ably borne. Immerse the feet and throw
the water over the legs as far as the knees
with the hands. When the water becomes
too cool rub briskly with a flesh towel.
Ibis method, if used night and morning,
-ta1 cure neuralgia of tho feet. Carpets
may be greatly brightened by first sweep
ing thoroughly and then going over them
with a clean cloth and clear salt and water.
Use a cupful of coarse salt to a large basin
of water.
Salt as a tooth powder is bettor than al
most anything that can bo bought. It
keeps the teeth brilliantly white- and the
gums hard and rosy. If after having a
tooth pulled the mouth is filled with salt
and water it will allay tho danger of hav
ing a hemorrhage. To clean willow furni
ture use salt and water. Apply with a
nail brush, scrub well and dry thoroughly.
When broiling steak throw a little salt on
the coals and the blaze from the dripping
fat will not annoy. Damp salt will re
move the discoloration of cups and saucers
caused by tea and careless washing. Brass
work can be kept beautifully bright by oc
casionally rubbing with salt and vinegar.
Wash tho mica of tho stove doors with
salt and vinegar. Salt in whitewash will
make it stick better. Hall's Journal of
The Ideal Sanitary House.
Tho picture of the Meal sanitary house
is a pleasing one. The house will stand
facing the sun, ou a dry soil, in a wide,
clean, amply sewered, substantially paved
street, over a deep, thoroughly ventilated
and lighted cellar. The floor of the cellar
will be cemented, the walLs and ceiling
plastered and thickly whitewashed with
lime every year, that the house may noD
act as a chimney to draw into its cham
bers micro-organisms from the earth.
Doors and windows Avill be generous in
size, so as to admit of plenty of air. Tho
outside walls, if of wood or brick, will bo
kept thickly painted, not to shut out tho
air, but for the sake of dryness.
Tho iusido Avails will be plastered
smooth, painted and varnished. Interior
wood work, including floors, will bo var
nished. Movable rugs, which can be shak
en daily in tho open air not at the doors
or out of the windows will cover the
floors. White linen shades, which must
be clean or they become unsightly, will
protect tho windows. The furniture will
be plain, without upholstery. Mattresses
will be covered with oiled bilk; blankets,
sheets and spreads no comforts or quilts
will constitute tho bedding. There will
be as little plumbing as possible, and what
there is will be exposed. The hot air fur
nace which heats the rooms will take its
supply from above the top of tho house in
stead of tho cellar, and, wo aro told, the
"spring" cleaning will be twice a year.

To Have Cool Water Without Ice.
Thero is no reason why there should
not bo a thousand crude water jugs to
every expensive one. The main outlay
need be only a few cents, the rest a liberal
expenditure of gumption applied to hea
then principles. The people of Japan de
pend for their drinking water upon their
J thousands of good wells. The dwellers in
! the cities, when possessed of unlimited
I means, havo porcelain filters and water
coolers, through which they obtain pure,
fresh water of a not unpleasant tempera
j ture. For the poorer classes Japan fur-
nishes a filter which costs about six or
seven cents. It is a bracket like arrange
ment containing sand and is most effica
cious in cleansing the water of the dust
which settles on Japan in clouds.
Early in the morning, before the sun is
up, the Japanese go out and draw water
for use during tho day. This is filtered
through the seven cent sand filter or
through a twenty-five cent charcoal ma
chine and then stoved away, closely cov
ered in wooden pails or pottery jars, in the
coolest place that can be found. New

Edmund Russell on Dress.
"In dress," said Mr. Russell in a lecture,
"the development of personality is the true
basis of tho best expression. The grace of
a costume depends mainly upon the proper
poise of the wearer. The most artistic
gown loses its effect when worn by a wo
man with a sunken chest, curving back
and projecting elbows. Repose, dignity
and grace of presence come only with tho
realization of Delsarte's idea of control in
the torso and freedom at the extremities.
The becoaiingness of a gown lies in its re
lation of color and form to the wearer.
There is a relation. botbby correspondence
and contrast. Black; by "contrast, gives an
added whiteness to'tho complexion, but by
correspondence it deepens every line on the
face and increases the impress of age.
Three classes of color are always harmo
nious for the street, shades on the tone of
the hair; for the house, the tone of the
eyes; for tho evening, i hr, tint of the com
plexion; Tho dress ehoti'd alveary ba sub

Bhould harmonizo with the dress, .being the
highest point in its decoration. In Greet

and Sevres wares." New York Star.
A Bedroom lire.
The fire should be made up every n'ght,
at 9 or 10 o'clock, by placing four or iivo
pounds of coal evenly on the top cf it; over
this about seven pounds of very small coal
or aoe. lnc clinnU Ivi carasaritiulAnail.
whole about four pounds of line coal asn
should be strewed, and patted flat with the
shovel. Suoh a fire will burn all through
the night without any attention, and in
tho morning the resulting cake of ash and
coal dust can be broken up, producing a
bright blaze. The addition of a little fresh
coal, with aiight strewing of ashes on the
surface, will keep the fire in throughout
the day. It is calculated that by this
method fourteen pounds of house coal and
seven pounds of coal dust or pit screening
will keep a largo bedroom at an average
temperature of 53 degs. for twenty-four
hours. Another advantage i3 that almost
smokeless fires result, since the layer of
superimposed ashes appears to filter the
smoke which passes through it, retaining
all the particles of solid carbon. Cas&ell's
The White House Linen.
There is still another room where one
can get an idea of Mrs. Harrison's house
keeping. It is the linen closet on the sec
ond floor. The linen was formerly kept in
the damp closets in the steward's room,
but Mrs. Harrison noticed one day that
there could be a closet amply large made
behind the elevator and she had the space
walled in, shelves built, and now the
White House has a matchless linen closet.
It is under the care of Josephine, Mrs.
Harrison's maid, and a whiff of it is like a
breath from a meadow in May, for it is
kept so clean and sweet. Everything is
initialed with "U. S." in white linen, al
though one set of napkins has the initials
in white, with a faint line of red. The
napkins are all a yaru squaro and of tho
finest damask. Mrs. Harrison has added
to the stock since she has been in the
White House, and there is one set of din
ner linen that was used at the first state
dinner that is as fine and soft as silk.

The Business Woman.
The typical business woman of today is
an object of admiration to men and of won
der to members of her own sex. Men
would not marry her, but they enjoy hob
nobbing with her and drawing out her
ideas, which are generally novel. If they
are not always thought practical it is be
cause other women, who have not been
real business women, have created a lack
of confidence in the minds of men.
The typical business woman likes men
and talks to them like brothers. When sho
is talking, if she happens to be seated, sho
turns sideways on the chair, crosses her
legs and places one arm akimbo on the
back; when standing she "crooks her el
bows and, with a quick little movement of
her thumbs, she places them in the imagin
ary armholes of her imaginary waistcoat.
She is almost always good hearted, has
ready sympathies and, if she acquires mon
ey, puts her hand in her pocket to help tho
needy with more than manly alacrity.

The "Well Urcd Girl.
A well bred girl thanks the man who

it in a quiet and not in an effusive way.
She does not declare that she never rides in
street cars. She does not accept a valuable
present from any man unless she exports to
inarry him. She doesn't talk loud in pub
lic places. Sho doesn't shove or push to
get the best scat, and'she doesn't wonder
why in the world people carry children in
the cars, and why they permit them to cry.
She does not speak of her mother in a sar
castic way, and she shows her the loving
deference that i3 her due.
She doesn't try to be a man, and sho
doesn't try to imitate him by adopting
masculine dress and manners. She doesn'r.
say she hates women, and she has some
true good friends among them. She doesn't
wear boots without their buttons on, or a
frock that needs mending. She doesn't
scorn the use of the needle, and expects to
make clothes for very little people who will
be very dear to her. Home Queen.

There are thousands of little courtesies
that should not be lost sight of in the
cruel candor of marriage. The secret of a
great social success is to wound no one's
self love. The same secret will go far
toward making marriage happy. Many a
woman who would consider it an unpar
donable rudeness not to listen with an air
of interest to what a mere acquaintance is
saying will havo no least scruple in show
ing her husband that his talk wearies her.
Of course the best thing is when talk does
not weary when two people are so unified
in taste that whatever interests the one is
of equal interest to the other, but this can
not always be the case, even in a happy
marriage; and is it not better worth while
to take the small trouble of paying court
eous attention to the one who depends on
you for his daily happiness than even to
bestow this courtesy on the acquaintances
whom it is a transient pleasure to please?

Ways to Ixoen Glass Stoppers.
Hold the bottle or decanter firmly in the
hand or between the knees and gently tap
the stopper on alternate sides, using for
the purpose a small piece of wood, and di
recting the strokes upward.
Plunge the neck of the vessel into hot
water, taking care that the water is not
hot enough to split the glass. If after
some immersion the stopper is stiil fixed
recur to the first process.
Pass a piece of list round tha neck of the
vessel, which must be held fast while two
persons draw the list backward and for

enable tho hand to turn the stopper.

Tho Prince and tho Seatlaet.

abous the young Prince Royal of Greece.
This young man was engaged to the Prin

Tho young lady lived in the palace of Pots
dam, and tho prince used to go there fro
quenily from Berlin. At first he made
stated visits, and was taken in a carriage
rom the raihray station to the palace.
But one day he took it into his bead to
pay an informal visit. Dressed in plain
civilian clothes he boarded a trcin. aad

"You bre a nice looking Prince Royal,

The prince insisted and got angry. The
soldier thought he was a poor crank and
tried to bring him to his senses. "Now,
my fine fellow," said he, "don't make a
fuss. Yau can talk as much as you please,
but I know my business. A prince, my
boy,always has a fine uniform with a cocked
hat and feathers and a bushel of decora

fool me. Now, go away!"
Noticing a lackey, the prince beckoned
to him, and after scribbling a few lines on
the back of a card told him to take it to
the empress. Tho lackey went off on his
errand. The sentinel grinned. A crazy
man might fool a lackey, but an old sol

his astonishment when he saw the princess
coming to meet the poor crank and wel

havo lived in' certain holes and fought shy
of hooks for years, aro fastidious as to
what bait they swallow. IIo says ho has
fished a brook with angle worms for bait
for hours and caught nothing, and thon
shifted to grasshoppers or flies and mado
godd catches. As an illustration of a
change of bait, he gives the following ex
perience: lie says that a few summers ago
he made some big catches out of a certain
brook, which was not, however, in York
county. One day, he says, he dropped his
line into a hole and saw a monster trout
playing lazily about near the bottom. Ho
worked and coaxed for a bite, but though
he trailed his bait under tho very noso of
the big fellow, he took no notice of it.
He spent the rest of the day with such
patience as is only possessed by a true trout
crank, and at night tho trout was still in
his native element. Next day he went
back and the trout was still in tho hole.
He angled all the forenoon with worms,
camo back in the afternoon and tried
grubs, grasshoppers, 'Sies and spiders, and
still the trout was indifferent and content
ed. The third day he went into a barn
and found a nest of young mice, and with
one of these he repaired to the brook and
found the big trout still there. He put the
vermin on his hook, dropped it into tho
hole, and the infant mouse, "alive and
kicking," had hardly struck the water
when the big fellow darted for him and in
a moment more was landed. He could ig
nore the usual kinds of bait, but he had a
weakness for young mice, and the angler
happened to hit this weakness. Biddeford
Tho Cruelty of the Check Rein.
The tight check rein is one of the great
est cruelties habitually and thoughtlessly
practiced en the horse. It hinders the full
use of the muscles called into play when
the animal has a load to draw. It impairs
the circulation, causing heat and suffering
in the eyes and brain. It holds back the
horse's head so that the full force of tho
sun's glare falls into his eyes, and he finds
himself prevented from dropping his head
and thus shielding them from this suffer
ing. And lastly, besides destroying grace
and ease of motion, the poor animal suffers
increasingly with nervpusness and restless
ness, which find vent in involuntary move
ments which not infrequently call forth
punishment from the ignorant driver. Yet
tho excuse of the check rein is to give
"stylishness" to the horse. Tho check rein
is cruel just in proportion as it is tijrht
enough to prevent his head from falling
into its natural position. If any one
doubts this statement let him for a mo
ment loosen that relentlees strap, and he
can have no more convincing argument
against its use than that afforded by tho
impatient manner in which the horse in
stantlv stretches his neck when released

Tho Value of Scientific Expeditions.
The work which has been done in con
nection with the "Challenger" expedition
is, of course, of great interest to the pure
scientist, but sooner or later it will be dis
covered to be of immense practical value.
The reports which have been published in
connection with it form a library of forty
seven quarto volumes, with nearly 23,000
pages of letterpress, more than 2,500 litho
graphic and chromo-ljthographic plates,
iOO maps, charts and digrams, together
with a great many wocdcufc. The prepa
ration and publication of the reports have
cost no less than M40.O83, and the amount
recovered by sales does not yet reach S90,
C00. The part of, the report which is
specially interesting ;s that which gives
information about harbors, tides, currents
and prevailing winds of out of the war
spots, which will be of use to those engaged
in maritime and coTainereial pursuits.

George IV as an ArtUt's 3Iodel.
In the room known as the Waterloo
chamber hangs the fine full length portrtit
of George IV in his coronrxiou robes, by
Sir Thomas Ijiwrenee. His majesty cer
tainly made a bad king, a bad husband and
a bad father, but he makes an admirable
picture. He knew how to "pose"' to per
fection, how to show up the symmetry of
his very handsome legs in . tbeir saowy
silken hose and how to tarn his-bead o aj
