HOUSEHOLD BREVITIES.
?Whenever eggs are seed la baktnf,
t Is better to beat them thoroughly bm
ore any other ingredients are added,
rhis is especially trne when bakinftowder
is used, as too much beating
iter the powder is added seems to kill
ts essential qualities.
?A nice way to fry mush is to take
ne egg and beat it well; take two
rackers and roll fine. Then slioe your
aush, cut it in rather small bat nicely
haped pieces, dip it in the egg, then la
he cracker dust, and fry in hot lard as
'ou would doughnuts.
?Bacon Omelette.?Cut up a tablepoonful
of minced bacon into fines*
(ieces, half fat and half lean; add pep>er
to taste; beat up three or four eggs,
,nd stir in the bacon; cook in a hot and
ery small pan that has a bit of melted
>utter or dripping already sizzling in it
-Leeds Mercury.
?Dressing for Lettuce.?Rub the
relks of two hard-boiled eggs to a
raooth paste with two tablespoonfuls of
alad oil or butter, one-balf cup of
ugar, one-half teaspoonful of salt,
md vinegar to thin. Pour over the letuce
and garnish with rings cut from the
vhites of the eggs.?The Household.
?Strawberry Dumplings.?Put one
)int of flour into a bowl, and rub into it
wo cunoes of butter, add a teaspoonful
(f salt and a heaping teaspoonful of
(aking-powder, mix well, and add suficient
cold milk, about a gill, to make
i soft dough; knead lightly, and rollout

?The bilious attacks which are so
iomraon at the present day are generally
rery easily cured; no medicine is necesiary.
A week or ten days of rather
ipare and judicious dieting will ofton
jut an end to them without further
ireatment, though a certain amount of
>athing, hand-rubbing, etc., will facili,ate
recovery. A bowl of thin gruel for
breakfast (no suppers), and a dinner of
)la n bread and fruit (the latter acid,
md both unsweetened) are about what
:he patient requires. A few lemons
vould be an advantage, these taken on
in empty stomach, and not too near the

UNWHOLESOME SLEEP.
The Surtut tVuy 10 Procure Sound, Healthful
K?pme.
Not always is sleep "tired nature's
sweet restorer." Sometimes, instead of
i halm, It brings a bugaboo in the shape
>f the nightmare. Man is a wonderful
piece of work, bnt his machinery may
bo thrown out of gear and seta-whizzing
3y so slight a thing as a late supper.
\n indigestible Welsh rareb.t at eleven
p. m may result In a big, suffocating
slack dog across his chest at one o'clock
n the morning; an overplus of loaf-pastry,
which his gastric juices can not oonreirlontly
assimilnte, may precipitate
aim from a precipice in dreamland into
i bottomless abyss; or a surfoit of pate
ie fbie pros send him to a Morphean gallows,
there to endure all the tortures of
ictual strangulation. This sort of thing,
by the way, is only one remove from
apoplexy, and the incubus-ridden victim
af inordinate and untimely self-indulgence
is likely enough to bo at last bedridden
in his sleep by a nightmare too
itrong for his vitality?oven P'oth.
The term nightmare is supposed to
have been derived from Mara, the namo
>f a demon which, according to the
Scandinavian mythology, pounced upon
men In their sieep ana neia ino win iu
thralldom. The old Saxons called the
Hstemper Elf-sidenne, or elf-squatting.
Wilt the doctors, who are nothing, if
sot ?lassical, It is Ephi&lties, from a
mythic giant of that name who undertook
to climb to Heaven, but, minsing
its foothold, tumbled into the fathomless
depths. Most of us have probably
been convulsed in our sleep with the
lamo sort of horror which the tripped-up
Titan is fabled to have experienced during
his "lofty fall" from the celestial
battlements.
In our boyish days, or rather nights,
we were frequently pitched headlong
from the tops of sky-cleav.ng mounttins,
throw over staircases and into
veils from which the bottoms had
Iropped out; to say nothing of falling,
bed and all, through trap-doors in the
Boor into illimitable chaos; or being
saught up by the hair into the realms of
?ther and there kept dangling and kicking.
like a umping-jack, without any
ippsrent prospect of roscue. Well do
we remember the start of terror with
which we awoke on sneh occasions, and
the deep-drawn wlghs of relief which
followed the consciousness of safety. It
is doubtful whether any waking agony
surpasses the torment that has been enlured
in dreams.
There can bo little doubt that many
of the specters of the dark ages were
Maras begotten of indigestion. Your
Saxon gormandizer, who sometimes
feasted far into tho night on boar's flesh
md venieon pastry, washing them down
with frothy mead, must have gone to
bed with his stomach in a nice condition.
No wonder that of the internal
fermentation, caused by such stuffing
ind swilling, hobgoblins and hippogriffs
In endless variety were born.
The surest way to avoid the nightmare,
and procure that sound, healthful
repose, wun wn on earn aay s me snouiu
be "rounded off," is to live temperately,
regularly and honestly. Ay, honestly,
for a troubled conscience, as well as an
aver-laden diaphragm, may engender
evil dreams.?N. Y. Ledger.

"HILT HER HOLT." 1
Aunt Jluay'a First and Only F d? on ? '
Railroad Train.
She never had any children of her
own; but tc several generations of
Sandy Ridge young folks she iaa been
"Aunt Jinsey." Her life b&s been
narrow, and hor experlerce limited in
Its range. Until last year, tfco omenta
which made epochs in Aunt Jlnsey's
experience were the completing k?r
first quilt, her baptism in Tassahaw n
oreek, her slighting of Deacon Barnes? 1
a three-months' widower?when she was |
sixteen, her marriage four year* later to
Jabes Golightly, and the winning of a
blue ribbon on her fortieth birthday by
her Jersey heifer at the country fair.
But last year she saw a wondrr*ul new
phase of life. In July, Unol# Jack began
to get ready for their ;aacual visit
to his brother David, who likes fifteen
miles distant. However, Instead of
driving there along the chaiing country
road, as has boon their want for
forty years, starting in the fsrly morning,
beneath pink sunrise skies. Jogging
j along past dewy fields and Jpt awakening
woods, arriving while tbe momingJ
glories yet held out their o i and blue
cups, the old couplo deoiied to make
the trip in a way novol to them both.
This decision brought to both of them
much trepidation, but more eagerness.
On tho appointed day, tboydrove, with
quickoning pulso-beats, tko long ten
miles to J , a small station on the
railroad newly constructed (through this ~
> section of tho East. Theoe they took
; the cars for a ride of seveh miles to a
tank, where an obliging qraductor was
j in the habit of lotting po^t?ongors off.
This tank was only two miles from
| David Goligbtly'g.
Aunt Jinsey lived throuhii it, though, !
1 ?v? Inrvimntijd !
from trie moment wucu n*i ? s
screeched and pulled off J until ?
it stood stone still at the ink, she did
not expect to.
"Yes, Dave," said Uncle Jabe, a few 1
days after, "we'll be obli^od ter you ter \
6end us home behind yort ole mare. I
ain't or honin' so powerful pertickler
ter bo whizzed inter turns, kyosbj tbet
thing."
And his good woman added: "Yes,
Dave; the olo maro'a sar ainly a properer
critter to pull us h me than thet
whoopin' injine."
But it was an oxperioiwa that aotual- J
ly enriched existence .'or theso two '
kindly souls. When the ipplo-ckoeked
Sandy Ridge girls and boys cluster
around Aunt Jinsey now :o hear hor tell V
the marvelous story of her tour, and
when she has graphically doscribed the
hooting and the roaring, the whirring
and the buzzing, the snaking up and f
the shooting wildly throigh space, they
always ask breathlessly: I
"And what did you do, Aunt Jinsoy?"
She wipes her face vith her clean
checked apron and, drawing a deep i
breath, replies: "Law, law, my precious I
uns, I jist hilt my holt an' promusaed
the Lord ez fast ez I eoull thet of He'd
git me off safe I'd nuvor bo kotchod agin
hitched onto no ungodly,scritchii' lokermoter!"?Detroit

THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. 1
Without Participle** im?l the Like It Contains
Fortj Thousand Words.
An intern- !.ing question suggostod by
an ancient waif of a book is the number
of English words now existing. Considerable
difference of opinion exists on
this point. Mr. Goorgo P Marsh, an
American author of repute, in his
"Lectures on the English Language,"
estimates that the number (in 1861)
"probably does not fall ahort of 100.00C; r
and largo addition*, especially in an T
and science, have corao Into use since
that date. Other writors, howover.
come to a different conclusion, and think .
that 40,000 would include the whole. It (
depends a good deal on how calculations
aro made. If all the subsidiary words g
?participles and the like?are to be
taken into account, it will swell tbe
sum total very considerably.
Taking the first three words that occur
at random, wo find that from "de
monstrate," in one of our modern dictionaries,
thore arc thirteen derivatives;
from tho word "bright" there are
twelve, and from "deplore" thero aro
ton. Thore Is also redundance in other
forms. In one of Todd's editions of Dr. m
Johnson there are upward of eighty
words, with tho prefix "all"?all-complying.
all-divining, all-drowsy, and so
on?a very notable Instance of dictionary
padding. In ways like these the
vocabulary may bo indefinitely increased.
Probably, if wo take leading
words and all their derivatives,
tho number at tho present time
will exceed Mr. Marsh's estimate. An
approximate verification of this may bo
found by multiplying the number of
| pages in any good modern dictionary by
the average number of words in a page.
tshake?p?are's works, it is believed,
Includo about fifteen thousand separate
i words, and Milton's about eight thousand;
but from theso figures wo have no
criterion of the extent of tho actual
English vocabulary. It may bo
mentioned hero that while Cocki
eram has only about seven or eight
thousand words, there are in Hailoy'a
niotionarv aDDroximatelv about thirty- I
I six thousand, and in Johnson's not more
than that In some of the larger
| modern works, again, the figures, as
i has been said, reach to upward of ono
I hundred thousand.
In Dr. Johnson's vocabulary many
| technical and scientific terms woro
I omitted, and it his original prefaoe he
; excuses himself in a very naive and
I cbaracteristio fashion. "I could not," s
he says, "visit caverns to loam the e
miner's language, nor take a voyage to
perfect my skill in the dialect of nav- i
igation, nor visit the warehouses of
merchants and the shops of artificers to
gain the names of wares, tools and operations
of which no .mention is found
in books." An adverse critic might be
inclined to a9k: Why not? But, all the
same, it will be readily conceded that (
be did a great work according to bis
lights. The science of philology has f
been revolutionised since his day, but
his labors largely contributed to the
earlier stages of its progress. ?Chambers'
