Persons owning house dogs hear with
ftiatr.ty the startling things that bac
teriologist* say about their germ-car
rying facilities. 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.

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

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

"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

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

found after long experience that it is
not the fullness of hasr mattresses

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

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.

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.

Walter Peter, whose polished and

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."

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

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

suggested that she should send it to a

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

word to any one, but herself burned the
lacerated flesh to the bone with the
red hot poker, and no one knew of it

"In the present century," say? "The
Living Church" (P. 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*

"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."

and hit tremendous blows against

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

"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."
Whenever a black cat passes a Hin

cause of a superstition which leads him
to believe that the cat contains the cour
