MISSULY WHITE'S PARTY.*
"May I go to Hiss Lily White's party?"
But grandmamma shook her head:
"When the birds go to rest,
I think It is best
For mine to go, too, "she said
"Can't I go to Miss Lilywhite's partyr
Still grandmamma shook her head:
"Dear child, tell me how,
You're half asleep now
Don't ask such a thing" she said.
Then that little one's laughter grew hearty
"Why, granny," she said,
"Going to Mies Lilywhite's party
Means going to bed!"

Age rocks the cradle till the balm of sleep
Upon the lily lids of Childhood lies,
Youth guides the tottering step adown the steep
Of life ane gently close's Ages eyes.
Some lives are like a day with rose-hue mom,
Bright noon, and eve of amber-tinted skies,
And some like to a Aey midst tempest born,
And gloom enshrouded till in storm it dies.
A woman's heart with kindly pity glows,
And quickly shows the sympathy it feels,
She drops the tear of grief for other's woes
And with a smile hor own heartache conceals.
THIS HAS HAPPENED BEFORE.
He who would grind his fellows 'neath his feet,
Would bully, tyrannize, and overbear,
Some day will with a stronger tyrant meet
And be compelled his galling yoke to wear.
Country clergymen are generally so
poorly paid that they would be justified
in organizing a strike and to refuse to
preach, to peiform the marriage cere
mony or to christen children until their
salaries were increased and more
promptly paid. In colonial times,
wrote Ben: Peiley Poore shortly before
his death, and far into the present cen
tury, every country parish had its par
sonage farm and its parsonage house,
where the officiating clergyman found
healthful home for his family and
himself. The farm was the model farm
of the neighboihood. and agricultural
experiments were tried there, while the
male population turned out for half a
day at planting time, hoeing, haying
and harvesting to help the minister.
The laboier was worthy of his hirea
free will offering.
Then there were the annual donation
parties. Bags of flour and of meal,
hams, salt meat, winter butter, and
othei household supplies from the excess
iof the farmer's abundance were poured
nto the parsonage with free and liberal
'hand, filling pantry and cellar and
making the good clergyman's heart
sin for joy. But alas! the increased
cash value of produce has dried up this
source of supply, and country people
now generally imagine that if they
comply with the teims of their money
contract they have done their duty to
their spiiitual overseer, so that where
the custom of paying "donation visits"
still continues, it is usually but a hol
low mockery of past abundancea thin
device to entrap an entertainment out
of a confiding clergyman.
I am 'gHd to learn that in quite a
number of lural towns religious soci
eties are purcnasing parsonage farms,
and indentifying themselves with their
clergymen, who will, it is to be hoped,
bo so well pleased with them that they
will not be looking after greener pas

gumber, says: I grind the wheat to fine
meal. At present lam feeding 10 beasts
on grass, with a half a peek a day, mix
ed with straw chaff, and cart horses re
ceive one-third peck each per day, and
-chaff with grass. When I take my
horses in the house I shall give one
peck of meal and two pecks of oats
mixed with chaff, and a few cut man
golds to every three horses per day. I
*f not give it to hack horses. Fatting
'beasts in house leceive it, with roots
and a plentiful supply of water, and if
I feed them very high I mix linseed
cake. I think there is nothing better
for pigs. For sheep I have not used it
except with cut roots, then I shaked it
over the roots in the troughs." Mr.
Wilcox, of Almondsbury, Gloucester
shire, says: "I have been in the habit
of feeding stock with wheat for some
years past I consider it to be more
nutritious than any other food I have
ever used. My plans are as follows:
Cut straw and hay to fine chaffthe
the greater proportion being straw
thrown over a given quantity (four or
five pounds) of meal, with as much
pulped root as you feel disposed to put,
rmxing it together. Give twice a day.

C^Tv^ SOUND ADVICE. %11
The New England Farmer gives the
following sound advice: "If you are a
young farmer and a young wife, just
starting in the world together, and only
your hands and brains to solve the prob
lem of life with, then pull, sing, play
and economize together, that you may
get out of the ruts' and be able in mid
dle and declininglife to extract a little
honey from the passing hours. Try to
make home cheerful and happy. Give
some time to reading and intellectual
pursuits, for they will be to you and
your children a richer and more endur
ing heritage than fine orchards and
vineyards. Keep your home out-of the
mortgagor's clutches be honest, tem
perate and independent, and you will
live long and die happy."
There is no sort of live stock grow
ing in value, now faster than good
sheep. Are you going to try a few
to make some mutton and give the
family a rest from the regulation salt
pork they have about 365 days in the
year to eat down the briars and fence
corner weeds to leave a little of the
best fertilizer here and there where it
will do the most good, and to raise
some staple wool that is ripe for the
market and will spot cash into the
family exchecquer at a time of year
when scarcely anything else does.

To remove Ink Stains Ink stains
are very easily removed if put imme
diately in milk and slightly rubbed for
a few minutes. If allowed to dry they
are not so easily removed, but can be,
by a little more effort.
To Remove Blood Stains.Blood
stains can be removed from an article
that you do not care to wash by apply
ing a thick paste, made of starch and
cold water. Place in the sun, and rub
off in a couple of hours, repeat the pro
cess and soon it disappears.
To Remove Fruit Stains.Hold the
goods stained over a vessel in such a
way that pouring water on the opposite
side of the stain it will run through the
goods, and in a short time the stain will
be seen to disappear.
To Remove Mildew Soak and wash
the spots in sour milk and you will have
no trouble in removing the same.
To Remove Iron Rust.Place a
bright tin, pour over a kettle steaming
with boiling water. Moisten the goods
with water and hold the iron rust spots
closely to the tin and rub them with ox
alic acid. As soon as you see the rust
disappear, rinse in cold water to re
move the acid, as it tends to rot the
goods, but if the process is performed
quickly there is no danger of this.
To Wash Cotton Goods.To wash
cotton goods containing a black figure,
pour boiling suds on the goods and let
it stand for a few minutes. This sets
the color, and when neatly washed and
ironed, instead of a faded garment, you
have one as bright and fresh as when
first made. Ginghams and prints of
various colors will hold their color bet

Klngsley and Raskin.
The secretary of a library In Eng
land, observing that there was a great
demand for Charles Kingsley's works,
and an equal demand, from about the
same persons, for John Ruskin's works,
wrote to the latter author asking him
how it was that so many people were
led to admire such widely different
writers. "That two such opposite au
thors should take hold of the same
minds, replied Mr. Ruskin, "is entirely
probably if the opposites are both a
part of the world and its sky. King
sley liked east wind I like west. King

I step eastward, thinking the old star

much in Kingsley that was delightful to
raw thinkers, and men generally re

Typewriting by Telegraph.
Type-writing by telegraph is one of
the latest novelties in the electrical
world. An old Philadelphia telegraph
operator namedMcLaughlin has invent
ed a type-writer which transmits writ
ing by telegraph, and by means of a du
plicate machine at the other end of the
wire, the writing is transcribed at one
and the same time that the sender is
operating, the shifting of the carriage
at the end of the line being automatic.
The plan contemplated is to sell the
machine to subscribers, who, by the
system of a central exchange, the tele
phone, can call up another subscriber,
and whether the person addressed be at
his machine or not, a message can be
sent him, which he can read at his
machine when he returns. No third
person can tap the wires or take a
message which is being sent.

How Women May 1M Pretty.
From Fashion Letter by Jennie Jane:
The most distinctive fact in the dress
ing of women everywhere, is the exact
ness with which it reproduces certain
features which have caught the popular
taste. For example, the vest, the
panel, the high, straight collar and
cuffs of some contrasting or decorative
material. These traits, with slight
variations, appear everywhere, in every
costume worn upon the streets or in
tended for public eye. The majority
of dressmakers are not required to have
ideas, only fashion plates to copy from
and perhaps it is just as well, for oneremarks
must be very well versed in the ordi
nary mode before one can afford to de
part from it. fjgfc SPl
But it is a little discouraging to find
that with all the talk about art and all
the skill women put into fancy work,
little they know, and how little
they apply what they know, to their
owncovering and adornment. Women,
whose homes are bowers of beauty, who
have little real work to do, who ocoupy
a large part of their time in making
chair scarfs and bureau covers, satin
satchels and pincushions, wear month
in and month out the same old, black
dress, treating husband and children
constantly to a garb which is poverty
and despair combined andcarrie&with
it a most depressing influence. The
thrift embodied in it is praiseworthy
it combines usefulness with economy.
It is durable and saves dressmakers
But there are so many pretty mate
rials nowadays, which, if a woman can
make up in simple and pretty style with
her own hands, she can put to varied
and becoming uses that are not worth
the cost put into them by a dressmaker.
There are so many adaptations of pretty
ideas, so much that is refined and orig
inal in the way of treatment and trim

simple forms and fabrics, were the arts
of decorative needle-work put by in

Amateur dress making has attained
a high degree of perfection in England,
and both this and professional dress
making has been stimulated by the
recent annual exhibitions of practical
and artistic dress making, which have
received flattering attention from both
press and public. Some college bred
and well worn women have been added
to the ranks of professional dress
makers, and are bringing science and
art to bear upon dress designing and
dress making. The serious purpose in
this and the educated taste that is
brought to bear upon it has already
exerted a noticeable effect upon the
dress of English women, and will in
time make them the best dressed in
stead of the worst dressed women
the world. Already they are the only
civilized women who dare to be orig

The Irish in America.
The average American usually thinks
of the foreign element in our population
as mostly made up of Irish and this
conception of the situation is in some
respects true. There are probably
now in the United States about 2.000,-
000 native Irishmen, besides 4,500,000
native Americans of full Irish parent
age. The greater part of the Irish
race is to-day in America. As the
population of Ireland itself is about a
third of what it was at the beginning
of the century, it appears that there
are 6,500,000 Irishmen enjoying the
blessings of a ready-made liberty here
to 5,000,000 who are struggling for it
at home. Nevertheless our Irish immi
gration has fallen off very largely in
