A belt four feet wide, extending to the engine ami fnr nace, Sixty feet away, slowly ascends from this hole, bearing upward and onward the nondescript mas?. Along the .?id? s of the belt sit from twenty to thirty man and women, selecting and throwing Into barrel? before it passes iherr. the sort assign????, them to ?-??tier. The paper Is divided Into five classe?*--mixed, manila, newspaper, strawboard and ledger, the iti.? Including ??!1 fin?* papers, such as ar?' used for magai nd writing.

About forty-five loads of rubbish are taken into the yard dally, and from that amount twenty-five or twen;y-slx bales of rags are turned out. One small class of rubbish still remains waste and has to be carted to the scows. This Is made up of fragments of glass, crockery ar.d pottery, for which as yet there is no use.

JELLIES AND JAMS AND OENBRAL HINTS FOR HOUSBHOLD COMFORT. Whit visions of crimson jams nnil translucent Jel? lies the mention of flamson plums recalls! Ami?! all the new varieties of plum none excels In usefulness nor in prolific bearing that ?mall purple fruii, it Is s'ill a Btandard variety of our markets anil su? perior for jelly, jam or for a spleni plum to gages or the newer prunes, To make damson jelly stem a peck of perfectly ripe plums, put in a stone jar anil set the jar in a keltic of water reaching nearly tifi to the mouth of Hip jar. Let the water boll aronnil the jar until the plums are thoroughly cooked, it will take twenty fire or thirty minutes if the jar Is closely covered, as it should he. Strain the juice from the plums after they are cooked. It may save trouble to flrst remove the skins and stones by passini; the fruit through a ?(?lander. The pulp and luice are then left. To make the finest quality of jelly allow the pulp to drip through a roars? cloth without using any pres? sure, S.ive the pulp lef? In the cloth fo;? spi'cd jam. Meaaure the juice, allow I* to stand over night in a COM place. The nex' morning allow a pound of sugar to a pint of Julep. I.et the julre boil up over the fire, and set the sugar on a pan In the oven to bcomc hot. When the Juice has boiled down for twenty minutes, add the ho> sugar. Let it boil up as soon as tho sugar melts, and ai'<T It has boiled a moment skim It and teg; it. If it is formed strain it through a bright new gravy .??trainer into tumblers. If it has not "come" to a jelly, let It boil until it does. ?\???? TO DO WI'lH THE PULP. The pulp which was saved may have a cup of vinegar added to every sorefl pints of pulp, with three and a half pounds of sugar, f'ook it unti! It Is a tnlok suhstar.ee?almos? a marmalade. Allow nn ounce of cinnamon and half an mine; of cloves, and add the apllOS. powdered a few moments be lor* t.iking up the jam. This is a good conserve to put on the table with roas? mutton and other meals. RECIPE FOU JAM. A Jam of the finest quality Is made of the full pulp and juice of the fruit. Stem the pluma and weigh them Allow three quarters of a pound of sugar to a pound of fruit. Mar.h the plums a little and cook them In a porr-elain-llned kettle. Add about a pint of water to a peek of plums, if they do not seem to be Juicy enough without It. If It !.. posatUo, however, avoid adding water and cook the plums in their own Juice, as any water added must bg afterward boiled out, anil the more a pre acrve Is c ?ok.'d the more the fresh flavor is im palred. There Is a dlfferenoe In damsons at different sea? sons. Some seasons they are more Juicy than at oilier??. After the plums have boiled ten or twelve miniit'-s, .strain out the skins and stones through a colander. Adii the sugar to the pulp and boll the jam <!own for about ?went) minutes, or until It is a thick but hardly a firm preserve. Housekeepers should remember that damson plums make a mo?t delicious pickled plum. WINDOW SCREEN OF SWEET PFAS. A kitchen window screen of sweet peas Is easily secured and Is a g.'nuine pleasure nnd satisfaction. For the benefit of those who would like one next year tho following Instructions are given: Take a long, narrow box, and have It filled with rich, well-pulverIsed dirt with which a small quan? tity of sand has been mixed. Place the box in a window, or Just on the outside ledge, where there will not be too much sunshlni. Plant the peaa and make a trellis of wire or twine on the outer edge of the box and run It up several fc?t. for tli ? higher sweet peas are trained Ihe more plenti? ful will he their blooms. Nip off the fulled blos? soms before they can go to se^d, and the succes? sion of flowers will last longer. Wat?r night and morning. G ARAM RI. CUSTARD. The following recipe for caramel custard Is said to be excellent: To one quart of milk allow four eggs well beaten: place the milk In a double holler and allow It to reach the boiling point. Caramel flavoring should be kept ready for usp, and Is made by putting a ?-up of granulated sugar In a sauce, pun, setting It over the fire ami letting It stay until almost black, being careful to stir It all the while. When It la still bubbling and smoking pour In a cup of boiling water, boll f'.r two minutes, then remove; let it cool, nnd botti?? lt. After the boiled milk has cooled add the egg? and four tablespoon fula of the caramel, stirring all until the mixture Is perfectly smooth. Hake for a half-hour In a moderate ?>???p: then take It out. allow It to cool, nn.i cut In slices. PINF.APPI.K (M'STARO. Pineapples are so fresh snd plentiful now. and are so wholesome an! refreshing, that the follow? ing tried recipe for pineapple custard pie may be of use to housekeepers: Mired thoroufhly ripe pineapples until you have two CUpfula; ?uhi one cup of granulated sugar and Ihe y?<lks of four .ggs well beaten.

ECONOMICAL TRIP TO PARIS AND MINICI!. AU. HER BXPBMSM FROM RffBRASKA TO EU? ROPE ARD back, iRcuroiira BOARD AND IvOIiOlXO. I.KSS THAN IM -an sxpmstawcsi, When a woman .-?ccompl?shcs the feat of studying art for one year In Paris and Munich at a cost cf l-O. she at once becomes a person of Inti-rest. Mrs. Alice Howl,md Worswick. of ' lleatrlce, Neb., has had the courage and persistence to a?compiish this. She passed through New-York last week on her way home, ami talked with a Tribune reporter On her experience?. Mrs. Worswick Is a ?lellcate-loi king little woman, less than thirty years old. She has taught paint? ing In her own Stat?? for more than ten \cars. Her desire to go abroad and study formed itself in her mind when she found herself with a few hun? dred dollars ah? ad. "I determined thai MM should pay the expenses of my trip.'* she agid, "I had taught every one of my pupils nil I knew myself. I had to Improve or stand still, so I planned the trip. Ttavlllng ?-y,? Jens? s from Nebraska to Munich and then to l'ari??. nnd from there bom?? again, have amounted to IMS I travelled Biat ?'lass on ihe ocean, but on land I denied myself sie.-ping-i ar comforts In order to economize. "On the other side I share.l my quarters with an American woman who was as seakHM fOf economy as I was We took a small room In the vicinity of the art class where wa were tn study. We paid U a month for it. Of ?ourse, you ? an't l-'et any? thing so cheap as that In New-York. The room was large ? -notigli to contain two couches, and we bad eonvonienrea for cooking In s ^uiail elooel ad? joining. These kitchen closets are tilted up for aludenta They contain a small stove and shelves oti wbi.ii ar.? the necessary rooking utensils and ?lisl.es. ?"HEAP BUT TOLRRABI.R FOOD. "The foe.] we induis??.1 ;n was, of necessity, of the plainest kin.l. We bough! mi buter and only a little meat, ga both >?f th??-?? ertlclea ar?? expen? sive. In place of coffe? we drank malt, a rerenl pr?paration that la v? ry wholfSOSas and only costs six cents a package. One paekase lenta iwe people nearly three weeks. It Is v.hoK-onie, and douhtlea? better for ihe nerves than coffe.?. While In Parta we lived In the Latin ?,Marter, m order to be near our work. Out room was on the sixth floor, and the labor of ascent would have worn out less sealoua women, l fear. "The lessons In the art clasa cost $1 a month, my room rent waa J- per month, .and the food I ate averaged j; ? month. After thai we had fuel and light? to buy. but. a? lh? re were two of US, wc Bhared th?? same lite and lamp. That made a ; material reduction. \v?? ?n?? <>'?G o?'" washing, snd j In order to facilitate the laundry work we wore as | simp!?? underwear an?! as little of it as possible. ; As 1 sum it up I believe It took more of grit and determination to carry the plan through than It di?l of cleverness. "We studied the various foods to find the most j nourishing, and we never invested In anything that 1 would not yield essential properties. Vegetables ! are very ?heap in l'ari?. We coiil?! buy thirty ; radishes in a bunch for one cent. Potatoes were Cheap, too. I dare say one could not keep up that kin.l of living right alonir. year In and year out, not because It would not sustain life, but because of the Inclination to self-neglecl among students and a. tendency to burn th?? ?-amile at both ends Of course, there is a nerve w? ar-and-tear In study that should b.? relieved by a good wholesome dbt, and Ihe one afforded by ii r,o i week certainly lias a monoton?.? about It. THE GIRLS' CLUB HOUSM. "All the Anvrican girl? go dally to the Girla* Hub house, maintained by Mrs. Whltelaw Reld nnd other women. Te.i |g aerved there every after nooi at 5 o'clock, Graham bread and butter, with meat sandwiches and Fr? neh cakes, are also a part of the menu. This catchea the art students in their way home from the studio, and the refresh? ment sustains them until their dinner hour.'' In response to a question about what j? most needed for the comfort and convenience of Amer? ican girl.- in Paria, Mrs Worswick .-ail: "A home for girls is needed mor? than anything else. It is my firm conviction that art students, especially the young ones, require mure restraint. They hare too much liberty. I think m.-ithers are venr Slow in recognising danger arhen they allow their daughter, tu go to Paris unprotected and un? attended. Th" influence j? none too good in a great ?ity like New-York, and the dangers ate very many. but in Parli where the atmosphere Is full of tne camaraderie so arell explained by Ibi Maurier In Trilli:?.' the peril i.-? tenfold greater. The American Institute, situated near tin Arc de Triomphe. Is th?? kin ? .f a place needed in the Latin quarter. This Institut?? Is loo remote from the srudios. and it is also too expensive. The art student needs some older woman to watch over her, te look a'ter her clothes and her food and her general comforts The American giri grows m?>re Independent and more carel.-ss every year she lives there. Her life. over there is. In fact, a great problem. Sometimes she grows discouraged. The recent fate of the Philadelphia girt, Miss Well, who threw herself int?> th? Seine, illustrates the depth? of anguish and despair to Which the art atudent'a tempera? ment I? subject. Too often there is a lack of talent, for only about one in ?Ix Is poaaessed ??f tne requl site ability. Sometlm?-s tho discouragements are more than they can bear." COIN^l APROAD TOO SOON. Speaking of the amoun* of training required be? fore an arti?t should enter a for?-lgn class, Mrs. Worswick said: "The American girl frequently makes a great mistake In going abroad too soon to Study, She Is not ready for ? he criticism of the master In whose class she enters. She has no Idea what Is meant by his criticism 'Tiie values are all wrong' or 'The construction I? very ha?l ' The mastir re? marks this as he passes along on his tour of In? spection. He never explains, but leaves her to find out what he means as bes' she can. To the student who does not progress he pays no atten? tion whatever. The one to whom he doe* devote some attention or extra criticism feel? at once that the master recogniaea talent. It i? a very simple uni common occurrence for a student to grow dis? satisfied, discouraged and Anally become a vic? tim to melancholia Mothers should know that if their daughter! ?In not write b ?me frequently they are not In a healthy frame of mind. "With regard to a home for students. It goes with? out saying that the art ?tudenl objecta t.. any restraint Whatever, hut any one who lives In the Pari? atudent'a atmosphere feels sure that too much liberty I.? not a gool thing. A home that is a happy medium between absolute fr-edom and convent discipline is the one that Is necessary, and then Amer!, an parents should see that their daugh? ters patronize It." Crf?r7 FOR SOFT CORSf,, A concentrated solution of tannin, says "Tiie Rr|f Ish Medical Journal." made by dissolving an ounce of freshly made tannin In six drams of water with the aid of gentle heat, gives Immediate relief to soft corns. If applied once or twice a day between the toes after washing. Tannin In powder is not quite no effectual. "The Medical Brief gives the following recipes for curing soft corns- First, keep the toes con? stantly open by placing a wad or cotton between them. Second, wear broad-toed ?hoes made of soft leather. Third, bathe the feet in warm water every night, wipe them dry an.l apply aqua ammonia to the corn. Soft corns are caused hy Bl|liesilllg t!ie feet In narrow-toe?! shoes. Ry keeping the toes apart you remove the cause and cure the corn. SEVERAL FREE SCHOLARSHIPS.

HOW ONE WOMAN CLEARED HER PACE ?Of BIX>TCHE8-VIRTUK8 OP HOT WATER. The true woman longs to be beautiful, and Who can blame her? It is part of a woman's duty to herself and to mankind to make her face and her figure as attractive and lovely as possible; and whin a weii-trled and satisfactory recipe Is found, It seems only fair to other women to pass the good news along. I want to tell my women readers how a fri-nd of mine regained a smooth and beautiful complexion from a perfect waste of roughness, tha chin especial'}? showing pimples ar.d unsightly red blotches. Shr had naturally the clear, white skin that goea with light-brown hair and gray ey?>s. After awhile the complexion became cloudy und the skin hard; small pimples appeared on the chin, seeming to lie deep down under the surface. At first she did nothing for the trouble, thinking It was only a temporary Indisposition that would soon pass away. Rut It grew steadily worse, and irom having a smooth, fine complexion, her face became a "sight,' and she grew extremely sensitive about it. At night she bathed her face in a bow', of wsrm water, m which a heaping tiaspoonf'il of po wile red borax had been dlssolv-d. Bhe need a soft wash? cloth of old linen, and a pur,?, aaaeentod cocoa ? ut oil soap. She did not scrub the ?jago, sensitive ?kin, but rubbed It c-.refully and then poured out the warm water ami turned on hot -as hot as she could bear li. Sin? thr?w the wat? r up on Ih?? face, using no cloth, simply hot wat? r softened with powdered borax, to which sh?? added ten drops of ?pirite of camphor. After this she dried h? r face by burying it In a soft damask towel, not rubbing it at slE Then -h?? took a pot ?,f perfectly pur?? .??!?l <r? am? mali?? ii|i with ros. water, and rubbed it thoroughly into her cheeks ami forehead, reserving the ?-hin for the best an?l longest rubbing. The liti ?? hard bumps under the skin seemed al first i.? with?i*nd all coaxing and softening, but sh? kept this treat? ment up religiously for tw?? mmiths before there was .my appreciable result. To this nlsht treat tneiit sh?? added a cold bath iti the morning. She experimented with this latt.r [?art of ihe tr? itm?nt until she was sure the cold witter was adapted 10 her syst.m. then, no matter how cold thi weatlMff or Mi?? water, that arctic bath was never omitted. A month of this had a wonderful effect Mor fa?-o gesl it? former clear, ?m<i?'h appear ? roiighne-?? on tl ? chin ?.??.?? to grow ????,.a to m; ?.????, and th softer. Her plan of diet Was rigidi) ailh.Te?l to, and thla was what she lived ?hi each day On ?.ivlng the ????id morning bath sh?? drank a ?.'lass of hot milk. Then for breakfast sha ate, first, an ?ir.mge. % small bowl of eith.-r cercatine, breakfast food, shredd? ?1 oats or crack?.? wheat, w?ll ?-overed with rich ?*r?-am. A small slice of beef, cooked rare, graham bread and milk tossi completed th. meal. ?Occasionally she at?? a soft-boiled egg Bvery other morning she had a mutton chop, so sh? viould not tire of the beef. For luncheon she at?? fruit, a salad, graham br ad. unealted butter, cup custard, a.al .Irai.k a glass of milk. R ?UlllOU I.f, mutton or Beh, vegetables, stewed fruit, m pudding or i.n le? formed her rm-nti for dinner. She drank neither ? ?offee nor tea, but took a cup of hot chocolate Juat befor?? she got into bed wh. ? Bhe fell that she wanted it Sh?? ?,),,?? long, brisk walk- every day. no matter the weather, a ring ? BOfl tissue veil if the wind was cold and cutting. If Ii rained ?he wore waterproof boots and ? mackintosh, and, with s man's large umbrella, mind???! tbe moisture no mor?? than if It had been sunshine. If It ?now?d or sleeted It mad?- no difference with her; that ?dally airing was going to be taken. She sleeps In a room without a tir??, snd find? that her sleep Is soun?! and refreshing. In 'he summer she keeps every window up In her room. At nlgftt she take? a warm s'?ong?? bath jti*t Infor?? she ???? to bed A year from the tlm?* she began to t.eal herself sh?? was prettier than she ha?l ever be? ? In her life, an?l h-r complexion was simply be-iutlful. Her eyes were clear and bright, and ther?? w.?.- a ?renerai air of elasticity and vigor about her that she had never known before. This Is a real case, and If one -ho ild see -he young girl's face it would be difficult ? ? Imagina that a pimple or blotch of my kind hid e? r marred Its rosele.if tint and fineness. VEQETABLE?
