OLD NAMES DIE OUT
CURIOUS POINTS IN DECAY OF I NOBLE FAMILIES. No Descendants Left of Men Whose 4 Deeds Adorn the Pages of Engl ah History—Nature Seems to Set Limit to Glory of One Line. The recent death of a young ncblt- Ban, gpfro. to recall a very old phrase, had during his short life been appar* Belly possessed of more money than alt, reminds one again. If. Indeed, re minder be necessary, that many and many an ancient family has cither entirely passed away or has lallen from Its former high estate. The curious thing about such de cadence is that the families of illus trious men are somewhat prone to de terioration. reminding one of the say ing that when a human race has given birth to Its bright consummate flower it seems commonly to be near Its end. There is not ow living a ►ingle de scendant in the male line of Chaucer. * Shakspcanv Spenser. Milton. Co'vper, Butler. Dryden. Pope. Cowley. Gold smith. Scott. Byron or Moore; no ore of Sir Philip Sidney, or. 1 believe of Sir Walter Raleigh; not one .vf P'ake. a Cromwell. Hampden. Monk. Peter borough or Nelson; not one of Staf ford. Ormonde, or Clarendon; not one of Addison. Swift or Johnson; not one of Bollngbroke. Waljxde. Chatham. Pitt. Foi. Burke. Grattan Canning, or Disraeli; not one of Bacon. Ixckc*. Newton or Davy; not one of Hume, Gibbon or Macaulay; not one of Ho garth. Sir Joshua Reynolds; not oat of David Garrick. John Kemble or mund Kean. It should be remembered that man> of the families of the shove non tioned Illustrious hand simply died out; but In tbn fase of a large nun her of this country's old families the de m cadence or dtappeararce can too oft cn he laid to other cans* s. for t has well been said that the ruin of great families may very generally be :raved to personal extravagance, gradt al de cay. electioneering, contests, expen sive ostentation or the alienation of estates through heiresses For Instance, a letter appears In the Gentlemans Magazine for Devember 1889. In which mention Is made of the family of Conyers, famous landowrers In Ihe north country, hut one of wh. last representatives squandered bis whole fortune In scene? of the lo** * 1 dissipation, and whose uncle art heir.

Vegetables are great features In French households, and neither pota toes, beans, peas nor cauliflowers are ever served plainly boiled. Cauliflower cut into small pieces and served with a rich bechamel sauce is a favoritv dish, and potatoes and carrots cut in rounds are often cooked in the same way. while beans and peas are great ly improved by the addition of a little butter, salt and pepper. They stew pears to perfection, whole, in syrup, peeled and with the stalks left on. After they are thoroughly cooked th\.y are put on a sieve to dry and cool, and the syrup is cooked a little more, a little red wine being added and som* times lemon peel to flavor it. For the Amateur Photographer. “Grain" is the enemy of the photog rapher who interests himself In copy ing. The best means of obviating its appearanct Is to “light” the picture evenly, but this not being always pos sible. expedients are necessary. One is to cover the space between the pic ture and lens with tWsuepaper; an other (if the picture *.s unmounted), to moisten the print and press it into contict with a sheet of glass, while frequently the application of encaustic paste will reduce ir. a very marked de gree the “graiA) ’ appearance of the print.—London Answers.
