Gregory Cbmlrtl. llll. br n fttn rtUUhlai 0. mi Xrw Tot trralM Wld). THE late Queen Victoria was noted, for doing tho rlcbt thlnj ana fay ing the right thing at the right moment Whon Sirs. Kceloy, the actress, was received by Her Majesty as begged to excuse herself (or not making tho low bow, saying, "Your Majesty, I bare a bad cast of rheumatism In my knees, and I cannot cottrtesy." "Mrs, Keeley," replied the Queen, "I can't, either," and In an Instant the two were on the lerel of a common womanhood. Our great martyr President, Abraham Lincoln, closely resembled tlio British Queen In the ability to make the unfortunate and the .embarrassed feel easy in his presence. One day an honest but Illiterate countryman, while trying to etato his case to tho President, remarked that ho was un learned and clumsy in speech but would do tho best he could, whereupon me ETHCunnro i-iacuiu uDscrYcu, sMnMi,-..!! tint him, itllVlMilfv wirt m I you hare to say, and I am sure' wo will have no difficulty In understanding each other." What oonsummale grace that was In the Queen and the President, what "sweetness and light," and, withal, what hlfjh and serene wisdom, the wis dom that enabled them to stand on a level with thoso who were officially below thorn, where both parties could find a common humanity and feel solidly at home. . It was tho "one touch of nature that makes the whole world kin." To feel that "touch" and to be governed by It Is always and every where the "ono thing needful." In Bayard .Taylor's "Song of the Camp" are the Immortal lines: "They sang of love, and not of fame; i Forgot was Briton's glory; Each heart recall'd a different name. But all sang 'Annie Laurie.' " It was the mystic rally of thousands of heart around the common cen tre where throbbed the master passion of love, a passion that ls'the Rami divine thing upon tho lco-covercd steppes of Russia and under tho palms of the sunny South. The oneness of humanity down underneath all tho superficial distinc tions that separato us THAT Is the great fact The great Quocn and the poor actress both knew what rheumatism Is. The uneducated countryman and the great. President both know the embarrassment of being tongue-tied when you would speak fluently and well. . Tho boys from tho Clyde, tho Shannon and the 'Avon all understand "Annie Laurie." And the world will never be a happy place to live In until its Inhabl Swits, regardless of artificial distinctions, shall feel the taMsmonlc thrill of toe' truth of human BROTHERHOOD, tho truth that in all essential points -we human beings stand .upon tho hopes and alms, and that tho really of Unship and good will.

If our housekeepers will Just add to the peas a few (say three or four) let tuce leaves, torn Into shreds, and the heart of an onion, besides the teaspoonful of sugar they would usually allow to a quart of shelled peas, they will be serving, peas as they are cooked In Krance. But tbey must be cooked a .certain ,way. Put the above Ingredients Into tho aucepan and cover It Shake It over the flame until tho Juices run from the lettuce, then cover with boiling 'water and cook until done and your returned hero will tell you, "That's the stuff."

Tlio excess flour can bo llghtjy shaken out by turning the pan upside down. Do not throw away tho liquid after boiling rice or tapioca. Add It to tho soup for nutriment ami flavor. When putting ketchup or chile eauce Into bottles let It come to within about an Inch from the top. Fill tho remaining space with vinegar and no mould will form on top, Ono housekeeper who had the hahlt of heatly tying all accumulated twine and rolling It Into a ball used it to knit a mat for her dish drainer, which prevents the nicking of the dishes. She did it at odd moments while being detaThcd in the kitchen on account of the cooking.
