It is, however, fairly safe, to keep a house dog if it is fre quently and properly washed. Dog fanciers will say, "Don't use soap, be cause the dog will lick it off to his in jury in his efforts to dry himself." Notwithstanding this advice, soap should be used, but the dog should be thoroughly sprayed afterward. What is known to druggists as green soap, which is not a brand of soap, but the name of a chemical compound, is the best cleanser to use for dogs. • • * It is common to hear complaints of poor gas. A man who knows laughs at the idea that gas is poor in some localities and better in oJoers. "AO gas," he said, "is practically the same. A poor light comes from a defective burner. The ordinary lava tip gener ally used clogs quickly and naturally, as quickly affects the flow of gas through it. Much better are metal burners that can be had everywhere at a trifling cost. These need an oc casional cleaning with the edge of a visiting card. They will last indefinite ly and greatly improve the light. • * * A pretty bag for soiled fine-hander chiefs is made from two handerchlefs of rather large size. The cheap lawn embroidered ones may be selected, choosing the largest of the assortment. They are laid together and shirred around three sides in a half circle and stitched through the shirring to leave a frill. Around the open ends> the same distance from the top as the width of a ruffle a narrow beading is stitched on through which a ribbon is run for a draw-string. » * * Referring again to the question of filters, the result of one householder's investigations may be added: "I have decided," he says, "not to get any filter, but to find some sort of house hold still, and use henceforth in my family distilled water. This is at once safe so far as germs are concerned and is also extremely wholesome. It has been said much of the rheumatism of the world would be done away with if distilled water was used universally for drinking purposes. Every housekeeper is familiar with the lime deposits in the teakettle: not one in forty deduces the obvious' conclusion that in drinking water undistilled the lime is deposited in the human frame. One of the do mestic implements should certainly be a convenient and simple household still." * * * Modern science advises great care In the use of brooms, which, it is said, are excellent germ breeders. The broom that is used to sweep the pavement ought never to be brought into the house at all, but should be left in the area or hung' outside of the kitchen in the back yard. * * * "Mince-meat to order" is the short sentence on which has hung, for three months, the support of one family in New York. The need came In Septem ber when the husband lost his place through the bankruptcy of the firm where he was employed. Intome stops, but outgo continues, as every body knows, under these circum stances. How to help perplexed the wife and mother until the idea came to her to utilize her one specialty in cook ing—the marketing of mince-meat. Be fore buying an ounce of material- she went out and got orders from each of two friends for a trial quart of the mirce-meat. Then she made a supply and easily found customers for the bal ance. From this beginning the business grew. Very soon she discovered from the remarks of some of her customers that to have good mince-meat was not enough, as so few cooks could make the good pastry which ought to accom pany it. This was another suggestion, and she at once offered to make the pies for any one who wished them. Thanksgiving week her orders kept her working literally day and night, with every' member of the family assisting her. While the season for mince Dies must of necessity be limited, before it is ended a very tidy sum of money will be the result of one woman's clever in dustry.

In one of his lectures on art William Morris sums up what he thinks are the necessaries to furnish an ordinary sit ting-room: "First, a bookcase with a great many books in it; next, a table that will keep steady when you write or work at it; then several chairs that you can move, and a bench that you can sit or lie upon; next, unless the cupboard or bookcase be very beauti ful with painting or carving, you will want pictures or engravings such as ypu can afford —only not stop-gaps, but real works of art—on the wall, or else the wall. Itself must be ornamented with some beautiful and restful pat terns; we shall also want a vase or two to put flowers in, which latter you must have Sometimes, especially if you live in town. Then, there will be the fireplace, of course, which in our cli mate is bound to be the chief object in the room. That is all we shall want, especially if the floor be good; if it be not, as, by the way, in a modern house it ii pretty certain not to be, I admit that a small carpet which can be bundled out of the room in two minutes will be useful, and we must also take care that it is beautiful, or it will annoy us terribly." >***-» ••#*» Baked beans occupy a deservedly high place in the list of nutritive foods, but some persons are unable to par take of the dish because it causes in digestion. This may arise from one of two causes: either the beans have not been sufficiently cooked or they are old beans. Never buy beans without seeing that they are fresh and plump looking and evidently of this year's crop. Old dried beans are, if eaten little less than deadly in their effect. Unscrupulous grocers will try to dis pose of a left-over supply and the housekeeper who buys blindly may be imposed upon. Sometimes the old beans are mixed with the new ones, but even this fraud may be discovered if the purchaser looks carefully at what he is buying. If mixed there will be a perceptible difference in the ap pearance of the beans, which can readily be noticed by scanning a hand ful. If this is seen avoid the whole lot and go elsewhere. • • • A housekeeper who has made a study of economical comfort in her home has found after long experience that it is not the fullness of hasr mattresses which adds to their comfort so much as close tufting. "I have my mat tresses made in the house and under my own supervision. They are tufted every four inches, and they are half the thickness of the average hair mat tress. One good hair mattress will make over In this way into two. This thickness is ample for the woven-wire springs commonly used. Nor do my mattresses have to be made over near ly as often as those of my neighbors. They do not mat because the hair is held in place by close tufting. The upholsterer will look upon this notion as foolish, but if it is once insisted upon, its test will be found convinc ing." * * * A raisin pie was a dish often seen on the Thanksgiving board of Colonial days. In a New England cook-book, published a hundred years ago, receipt is given: One cup seeded rais ins, one-half cup sugar, one tablespoon ginger, salt and spice. Boil the raisins In a cup of water; and a spoonful of flour and one egg. Bake in two crusts. Courageous Mice. A woman residing in the West End had a remarkable experience with four teen baby mice. She went into the cellar to a secluded corner, where no one had been for s me time, in search of an ice cream freezer. She found it, and inside wa3 a nest containing fourteen mice. One good, sized mouse was in with them, and, although frightened, would not leave the little ones. An old piece of tape reached from the bottom to the freezer, over the top and down to the ground. Mrs. B. went upstairs to look for some of the boys to help her take them out, but none of them was home, and so she mustered courage and determined to go down herself and turn them out. When she reached the freezer the light of the lamp she held in her hand shone directly on it, and she saw two big mice, each carrying a baby mouse. One was coming up on the inside and the other was going down on the out side. She was held spellbound at the curious sight, and did not offer to dis turb them. She watched until every one of the fourteen babies had been carried to a place of safety. Mrs. B. had a large mousetrap on the other side of the cellar, and so touched was she by the scene she had just wit nessed that she took the trap upstairs and threw it into the fire.—Albany Times-Union.

Literature and Literary Workers. It will bedews to most people to learn that the "Sentimental Tommy" of Mr. Barries famous novel was, to some extent, modeled On the late R. L. Stevenson. Tommy's craze for getting the "richt wurrd" In that well-known essay of his was suggested by Mr. Stevenson's craze for style. But as some of us have suspected, Tommy is meant by the author to turn out badly in the sequel, so Mr.| Barrie .was care ful to explain to Stevenson "that Tom my, after he grew up, was no longer R. L. S." R. L. S. affected to be mightily concerned over the fate that awaited him in Mr. Barries pages. "What have you done wf me?" he wrote, anxiously. "It's surely no forg ery? Am I hang it?" .» * * There is a strong probability that we shall shortly see a uniform edition of James Lane Allen's works. The Mac millan Company has secured the pub lishing rights of those of Mr. Allen's books which have hitherto been pub lished by Harper & Bros. This gives them the control of the Mr. Allen's works issued up to the present, and makes possible a uniform edition, for which the desire has so often been expressed. * • « Mr. Sidney, in the "Athenaeum," ex plains why the recent copy of the first Shakespeare folio, just sold at auction, brought such a large price. The book realized 98,500, or double the price of an ordinary copy of late years. The folio was entirely unknown until it ap peared in the auction room, it having been in the possession of a family in Belgium for more than 100 years. It is perfect as to text, though the mar gins of a few leaves were torn, and it was probably bound over 200 years ago. It Is this edition of Shakespeare in which Ignatius Donnelly found the wonderful cyptogram which, he claims, proves that Lord Bacon wrote the Shakespearean plays. . ,* * * Walter Peter, whose polished and fastidious'style of composition makes him unique among authors, was as precise in his surroundings as in his literary taste. Here is a description of his sitting-room at Oxford: "Yes, there were, indeed, rose leaves on the table set in a wide, open bowl of blue china; and It was just possible to de tect their faint smell. The warm blue tone of the room was the first impression ohe "received on entering; the stenciled walls; the cushions of the chairs,* the table covers and the curtains to the mullioned window that projected over the pavement—all these were blue. And whatever in the room was not blue seemed to be white, or wood in its natural color, or polished brass. The books, in their low, neat case, seemed all white calf or vellum; above them an alto-relief in plaster showed white; in the corner a pure white Hermes on a pedestal, with tiny wings outspread." * » * Rider Haggard has written for the "Youth's Companion" a sketch de scribing some real, but exciting African experiences of his own as an officer of the Pretoria Horse, a body of volun i teer cavalry raised to repel an attack by Zulus. * * * Dr. Henry Van Dyke resigned the Church and accepted the professorship of literature at Princeton University. As far as money goes it is a bad change. For literature, however, a matter of congratulation. * * * English critics seem to be quite en thusiastic over Opie Read' 9 "The Wat ers of Caney Fork." "No brighter work has ever come eastward," says London "Academy," and James Payne in London "News" is still more enthu siastic. "He has created a companion for our own Col. Newcomb." * * * The Institut de France, which some time ago received such a magnificent legacy in the Chantilly estate, has now received another, left especially to the Academic dcs Inscriptions et Belles- Lettres, consisting of the whole of the property of a M. Dourlans, which in cludes, among other things, the Salle Wagram. This hall is well known to such as attend more or less cheerful, if not absolutely the most elegant, re unions of various descriptions, dances, political meetings and what not. The Academic is, of course, duly grateful, and, so far as the money is concerned, delighted; but it is by no means cer tain that the Salle Wagram will not be a decided white elephant to the per plexed legatees. * * * How should these United States carry themselves toward Germany? that is a question concerning which there may be much interesting discussion, and Captain A. T. Mahan is about to open it. He has written for "Harper's" a study of the policy that should deter mine that attitude. » » * The "International Monthly," the new "magazine of contemporary thought," announced by Macmillan, will make Its first appearance in January. It will present essays in history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, comparative re ligion, literature, fine art, industrial art, physics, biology, medicine, geology, hygiene and geography. There will be not less than five essays In each num ber, and none is to be too technical for the general reader. American and for eign writers will contribute to its pages. The first article in the first number will be by M. Edouard Rod and will deal with the "Later Evolution of French Criticism." » * » Florence Marryat wrote her first book under rather unusual conditions. After her marriage she went to India, and on her return it happened that her three children were laid up with scarlet fe ver. During that time, when she her self was worn out with overanxiety, her doctor suggested various ways in which to distract her mind. "I think," she said, "that if I had a ream of fools cap and pen and ink I could do some thing." They were brought to her, and it was in this way that she wrote her first novel, "Love's Conflict." When it ; was finished, her friend, Annie Thomas, suggested that she should send it to a publisher. She took her friend's ad vice, and received a check for $770. • * • Emily Bronte was a very striking and lovable personality. ' A tall, thin, sal low, stooping," silent girl, in ill fitting, old fashioned dress, strangers saw her —they may have noted with the rare uplifting of the downcast lids the beau tiful liquid eyes—and never dreamed of the fire, energy and vivacity that plain exterior hid. See her at home—upon the moors with her dogs at heel; the long limbs under the "slinky" dress move with a wild free grace. She whistles like a boy; she . charms her sisters with the flash and pathos of her, talk—possibly if is only a pool of tad poles she chases about with her r hand that suggests the quaint conceits, the wisdom and the humor, and, herself fearless, she delights to lure the timid Charlotte to some far-off hollow, and on their return home to tell her of some wild creature that lurked near. She loved nature; with bird and beast she had the most intimate relations, and from her walks she often came with fledgling or young rabbit in hand, talk ing softly to It, quite sure, too, that it understood. Never was there her par allel in anything. A deep and earnest student of German, a pianist of wonder ful fire and brilliancy, a writer of mar velous promise, she did willingly and untiringly the heaviest household drudgery. Once she was bitten by a dog that she saw running by in great distress, and to which she offered wa ter. The dog was mad. She said no word to any one, but herself burned the lacerated flesh to the bone with the red hot poker, and no one knew of it until the red scar was accidentally dis covered some weeks after, and sympa thetic questioning brought out this story. • • * Another time Branwell's bed was dis covered on fire. Charlotte and Anne clung together terrified in the hall, while Emily fought the flames. When they were extinguished she appeared, half-dragging, half-carrying, their drinkrand-smcke-stupored brother. She" put him on her bed, then disappeared, i and how and where she spent the night none knew or dared ask. And when Tabby broke her leg, it was Emily who carried her up and down stairs; and when the faithful servant had grown old, it was Emily who rose early to have the heavy work done before she ap peared. Almost simultaneously with Bran well's death she fell sick. She would have "no poisoning doctors"; she re fused the medicine Charlotte had pro cured from a London physician; all must be left to nature. "Never in all her life had she lin gered over any task that lay before her, and she did not linger now. She sank rapidly. he made haste to leave.- Yet, while physically she perished, men tally she grew stronger. The awful point was that, while full of ruth for others, for herself she had no pity; the spirit -was inexorable to the flesh; from : the trembling hand, the unnerved limbs, the faded eyes, the same service was enacted as they had rendered in health. I To stand by and witness this and not dare to remonstrate was a pain no words can render." Charlotte went out and searched the frozen moor for a lingering spray of heather. She brought it in and laid it on Emily's pillow. But the eyes that had gazed delightedly on the most tri vial leaf and flower were closing to earthly things. The heather lay un noticed. Emily died in December, 1848. —Self Culture Magazine for December. * * » It is understood that lan Maclaren's "Life of Christ" is to be profusely il lustrated by color process with pictures specially secured in Palestine and from the great European galleries. The sum of $10,000 has been paid for the serial rights. Dr. Birkbeck Hill prints in his John son Club paper two passages from Bos well's description of the good doctor which Bozzy himself suppressed In his proof sheets.' Here they are: "Gar rick," Bosweli writes, "sometimes used to take him off squeezing a lemon into a punchbowl with uncouth gesticula tions, looking round the company and calling out, 'Who's for poonsh?' " Bos well added in the margin, "and hands not over clean. 'He must have been a stout man,' said Garrick, 'who would be for it.'" v . : The other passage suppressed gives the curious information that Johnson never took a servant with him when he stayed with friends. "He knew how to mend his own stockings, to darn his linen, or to sew a button on his clothes. I am not," he would often say, "an helpless man." Concerning this John son Club, "The Pall Mall Gazette" says that it is an institution which meets periodically at the Cheshire Cheese, the eld Fleet street tavern which claims most energetically to have been a haunt of Johnson's. The club opens its pro ceedings with a large pie pudding, which appears in a dish larger than many baths; then, greatly daring, it woes on to large portions of Welsh rab bit, and at this point another bath is brought in, full of rum punch. Then some one reads a paper on some sub ject connected with the memory of Dr. Johnson, and during the rest of the evening the members discuss the paper and the punch. * * * Some unpublished manuscripts by Heine were in the possession of his sis ter, Frau Emden, who has just died at the great age of 99.

E.) of Chicago, "the changes which have come about since 1830, in the wake of the Oxford move ment, setting what is specifically called ritualism entirely apart, have been so great as compared with tne state of things in the Georgian period that it is certainly true that the clergy and peo ple of the eighteenth century, If they could rise from their graves, would find little or nothing of a familiar charac ter—apart from the Prayer Book—even in the most moderate parish churches. The traditions of that old time have been almost utterly extinguished. In architecture, in the interior arrange ment, and in the manner and accom paniments of worship, all is wonder fully changed. In all the multitude of churches erected in London in the last fifty years, our forefathers could hardly enter one which would not suggest to them the flavor of Romanism. It is, therefore, In the light of facts, extreme ly difficult to establish any kind of 'tra ditional character* as pertaining to the outward aspects of the church. The character of the church edifice, its ap pointments, the number of services, their order and relative importance, tbe method of their execution and their ceremonial adjuncts—all are changed. And "nobody desires to go back to the walled-up chancels, the white-washed walls, the square pews, the 'three-deck er' pulpits, the black gowns, the du»t of parson and clerk, and the rare com munions, all of which satisfied cur fore* fathers." * * * "And if patience was never more nec essary on the part of the laity, so there has never been a time in this century." says the New York "Churchman" tP. E.), "when a higher statesmanship was demanded of the episcopate. If the vexations of acrimonious controversy are added to the heavy burdens of dio cesan administration, Bishops would be more than human if they did not lose the wider in the narrower vision. And there is a spirit abroad to-day of Angli can fellowship, of racial sympathy, that has been long in maturing and is rich in promise for the immediate future. The colonies and the missionary jurisdic tions of the English Church share in larger degree than ever before the spirit of glad co-operation with the mother country, of> which the South African war has recently given an eloquent demonstration. The Churches of Ire land and Scotland are most friendly. The feelings of our own church have never been more affectionate and cor dial. Of subordination there is, of course, no thought, but closer co-opera tion in associated effort there may well be, and it would strengthen us all. We have a common opportunity, and that Implies a common duty. The Anglican communion in all its branches repre sents pre-eminently that primitive Catholicity in which the individual stands erect on his feet before God, not bound by the swaddling clothes of Roman tradition nor separated from the fullness of faith that comes alone with the organic unity of the church. That is the great truth for which we i stand in Christendom. In cordial fel lowship we shall bear to it an effective witness in the coming century." * * * "If we were to make a list of the things which the first Christian Church, as it was on the day of Pentecost, did not have," says the "Presbyterian Ban ner" of Pittsburg, Pa., "we would be surprised and think it could not have been a church at all. It had no church building, no pipe organ, no choir, no pew holders, no subscription list, no treasurer and no pastor. What would we think of our church if it were stripped of all these things? Yet one thing it did have that may be our greatest lack, the baptism of the Ho!y Spirit. Kindled by fire from Heaven, how it burned and flamed with zeal, how great was its work, what multi tudes were added to it, what a power ful impulse it gave to the kingdom of Christ on earth! A church's life, then, does not consist In the abundance of the things which it possesses. A costly building, an artistic choir, an eloquent preacher, and a fashionable congrega tion do not in themselves make a true church. We may go into a church that has all these things, and then go into some bare hall where st few Christians are worshiping, and we may feel that the plain hall Is a truer church, has in it more of the spirit of Christ and the glory of God than the costly establish ment. These external appliances of the church—its material shell—are good and even necessary In their place and are not to be depreciated. They cost us a good deal of money and we must have them. But they are not The church, and they are not what the church is for. They are only means, and we are to use them only as means to spiritual life and fruit " * * * • "Dr. G. A. Gordon of Boston is re ported to have remarked recently, at a religious gathering in Boston: 'The fault in the Christian Church is that the broad-minded men have been least filled with an ethical passion; the nar row men have done the work.' 'Broad' and 'narrow,' " says the New York "Observer" (Pres.), "are relative terms, whose proper application varies ac cording to the standard of measurement adopted. If the cubit of Scriptural measurement be employed, he is safely and properly 'narrow' who does not go abroad beyond its indicated bounds, and he is 'broad' enough who meets its ethical requirements. If there be a passion in 'narrowness' it must come of an earnest concentration upon the main matters of reveration and of life, and if there be an indifference In 'breadth' it may be because the dyna mite of a redemptive grace is lacking, or because the mental vision, while seemingly widened, is confused by in numerable mirages looming up over the arid deserts, which deludingly promise refreshments to the soul. It is safe to be as liberal as Jesus Christ was, and no more." * * * "Dale is dead," says the "Congrega tionalist" of Boston, "but John Wat son's great speech on the 'Grace of Orders' shows that in him the Free Churchmen have a great tribune who can and will stand side by side with John Clifford and Robert F.

If It be said that these are but voices of the minority and that the tide is run ning too strong the other way, we reply that they are omens of a new era of action that will follow the era of criti cism through which institutions and doctrines —political and religious—have been passing during the last twenty five years. The time for analysis is about over. The time for synthesis has come. New grounds for certitude in old facts and permanent truths, if not old terms, have emerged,, and leaders in church and State who have been walk ing gingerly may now step firmly with something of the Cromwellian tread de scribed by Lord Rosebery in his recent great eulogy of Cromwell. The limita tions of science and the scientific method are now being more clearly dis cerned, as well as their great service to religion; and the authority of faith, tbe potency of mystery, the propellirg power of a conviction that one is in touch with the Supreme Will and ex ecuting His behest will again be dem onstrated in the lives of peoples and in dividuals." * * * "A church by upholding the Chris tion ideals of "life exerts an -influence i that far transcends the-borders of its' own membership," says "The Watch man" (Bapt.) of Boston, "but It will only succeed in profoundly affecting the life of the surrounding community when its precepts are exemplified in the lives of its members. W r e are all ready to apply this truth to individuals and say that the lives of Christians should conform to the principles they profess to accept. But a Christian Church, though made of individuals, is distinct from them just as the State is distinct from its citizens. Not only is the in dividual Christian to seek to realize the divine ideal, but the church is to f-eek to do so. It is a common saying that half a dozen high-minded gentlemen, acting as a society or corporation, will do things that no one of them would do ; in his separate cupacity. Something- of I the same kind is true of churches. We i have all known of churches, composed ] of excellent people, which did not as churches have a thoroughly wholesome j influence. The corporate life and tone | were not what they ought to be. Even I the church at Sardis, which the Lord 1 sternly condemned, had some me-nbers who had not defiled their garments, and were counted worthy of walking with the Lord in white." * • « "A Jesuit, whose plausibility is not inferior to his ability presents in the 'North American Review,' a defense j and commendation of ' the Romanist practice of auricular confession. The article," says the New York . "Exam iner" (Bapt.), "is in the amiable, in sinuating tone so well calculated to impress the superficial mind. But neither this writer, nor any other, can do away with the fact that the rela- ' tion of the human soul to God is alto gether personal. Men can have no partnership with us in our penitence or confession. And, as to the aid that may be received from the advice given by the priest, of which the writer makes so much, that deperds wholly on his capability to enter into, so as to read the penitent's weaknesses, wants and susceptibilities. To do this fully Is impossible. No man can know us fully unless he can clothe himself with our consciousness. There is no experience more common than the mis leading which comes of conformity to advice sincerely given. As confession is to be made to God—and to Him alone —so direction and guidance must be of God, who knows us altogether."
