/ it HOUSEHOLD MATTERS. EGG-FRYERS, ra Ecrg-fryers with sunken places in shape of hearts, stars and other devices are comparatively inexpensive kitchen utensils, by means of which ejrcs may be fried in these fancy shapes. Fried eggs should be dropped deftly and quickly into the spider. Unless they are fried in a shape it is quite likely that the white will run about, and they will present a very ragged and uneven appearance when they are dished. In order to prevent this, housekeepers sometimes ?n _?n? run lUClll lii LU tuuipauo UlbiV XV/1IO auu trim them. When this is done the egg has to be cooked more than is to every one's taste.

The great arch and the stone bench or ledge under it, with its minute fireplaces beating each its kettle or stew-pan, forms the ojak or range,and is equipped at one end with a copper cauldron and at the other with a brick oven. Around the walls hangs an imposing array of shining copper saucepans, aad sometimes there stands in the corner a huge terra cotta amphora of antique pattern, to serve as water-cooler when the cistern is low or the aqueduct runs dry. In this primitive atel>er, the turbaned chef fanning the microscopic fireplaces with a turkey's tail, or damping them with ashes to keep the stew at a gentle simmer, concocts his savory chorbas, his toothsome pilafs and well-seasoned dolmas,with results which no epicure ventures to despise.?New England Magazine.

If there is one thing more than another when a bachelor commences to doubt whether his state of single blessedness is the most desirable form or existence it is at Christmas time. The joys of the season are essentially domestic joys; and every one is either looking forward to convivial meetings with a circle of relations and friends or a happy reunion with his own family. At such a time a middle-aged bachelor with no relations feels rather out of it. Now, although I must plead guilty to ten years of bachelorhood, I never was one of the misanthropical type. I was single (observe the past tense) not from principle, but merely from force of circumstances, and I was never addicted to shutting myself up with my books and a cat, and growling cynical remarks at the pleasure seeking world. On the contrary, I am of a somewhat jovial disposition, and was always fond of soDiety. Christmas time I liked to spend at a jolly country house, and could turn my mind to charades, dancing, romping with the villagers or children, conjuring and many other accomplishments. In fact, I may say with fi ne modesty that I once heard myself described by a couatry hostess as an "extremely useful sort of man." The idea of spending Christmas in any solitary rooms, with only my landlady and her domestic to talk to wa8 a contingency which I had never contemplated for a moment; but last year I was very nearly brought face to face with it. I generally had at least two or three invitations to select from, and chose the one where I should be likely to meet the most interesting set of people; but ou this occasion my usual invitations did not arrive. The Harwoodg, with whom I had spent the Christmas before, had lo3t a child, and were in mourning; the Houldens were wintering at Nice (Mrs. Houlden was delicate) and at Houghton Grange both the girls were married, and the Christmas house parties were things of the past. These were my stock invitation; and as I recollected others among my circle of acquaintances to whom something or other had happened since last year it slowly dawned upon me that if I desired to avoid a Christmas in London I had better make arrangements to remove myself either to a northern hydropathic establishment which I had occasionally Honored witn my presence, or to a Brighton hotel, where I was sure of falling in with some pleasant company. just as I had arrived at this melancholy decision, however, a letter arrived which afforded me the greatest satisfaction. It was an invitation to spend a week or two with my old friend, Fred Halleton, at his place in Leicestershire; and with the vivid recollection before me of a pleasant Christmas spent at Gaulby Hall some three years ago, I lost no time in penning a cordial assent to the welcome invitation. A few days later beheld me, followed by a porter carrying my various impediments, on the platform of St. Pancras, prepared to make my journey down to Leicester by the half-past three Manchester and Liverpool express. The Pullman waa crowded with a pack of noisy schoolboys, so I eschewed it and selected an empty first-class carriage. I took possession of my favorite corner seat, with I WaM/A : V'. ri/1 fPa sVwr &' "WITH MT BACK TOWARD THE ENGINE.'' my back to the engine, and wrapping my leg round my knees and unfolding & newspaper glided away from the city I /-> f nnn aIta in ft vamnnlrAklir ?*aa/1 V\<im a* \JL OUlUaG JU k A vUiAl IVUl/ljr ^UJU UUUJU1, partly inspired, no doubt, by a capital lunch, and partly by pleasurable anticipations of my forthcoming visit. Fred met me at Leicester station, and I saw with regret that he was looking pale and ill and much thinner than when I had seen him last. He seemed pleased to see me, however, and greeted me tvarmlv. During our drive to Gaulby I hazarded a few remarks, with a view to ascertaining what sort of a party there was colu-t-j U?II T J ~ leuLcu at outs nan, uut J. gut uuiuiu^ uefinite oat of him. He was quite unlike his old self, and I came to the conclusion that he must be ill. As we drove up the avenue I leaned out the window to gaze at the fine old mansion, and it struck me at once as looking cold and uninviting, while the grounds were certainly very much neglected. Something seemed wrong all round, and I began to feel almost sorry I had come. We overtook | Mrs. Hallston at the hall door, just re' ' 'A- i J?i- 'V turned from a walk. She was as gracious and as pleasant as she had ever been to me, but I fatcied that I could detect in her manner and appearance something of the ill being "which seemed to exist around her. We all three entered together, and the moment we passed through the door I I felt convinced that my expectations of a jolly Christmas party were doomed to disappointment. There were no decorations about, only one doleful looking servant and apparently nothing stirring. I felt sure something was wrong, but at any rate I consoled myself with the reflection that I had lost little by coming, as it had been a choice between here and the hotel. But, all the same, I did not feel particularly cheerful as I followed the > ' -*-> i?i-:? .i.,? QOi?lUl lUUKJUg OCLVouu uj^obouoj aiuug wide corridors, across passages, upstairs again, and then down a long corridor, until at last -we reached my room in the west wing.. My surmises were correct. When I descended, after prolonged and careful toilette, my host was lounging about in a shooting jacket and he and his wife were the only occupants of the room. I was the only guest. "I've something very serious to say to jou, NeillsDn," he said slowly (Neillson is my name). "I'm going to make a confidant of you, if I may, old man." I bowed my head and listened. 4'You haven't noticed anything par4-^tiloT oVwMit mtV TcnfA. T don't. Rimnnw biuuiai wwwuv uij * ?; ? ?- ? - --^j/vvvj have you?" he asked, with a searching glance. I admitted I had thought her strangely silent, and apparently having some anxiety weighing upon her mind. He laughed, a ohort unpleasant laugh, and leaned over to me confidentially. "I rely upon your discretion, you know, Neillson. I wouldn't have it known for the world; but my wife is mad." "Mad J" I stared at him incredulously. "Yes, mad," h'e repeated impatiently. "Ic was the sun in India last year that did the mischief. She would expose herself to it. The doctor whom I have nnnenlfed advised me to send hnr tr? a private asylum, but I haven't the heart to do it. She's perfectly harmless, you ksow; but, of course, it's an awful trial to me." "i'm going to chgck her down." I stammered out an expression of sympathy. To tell the truth,I scarcely knew what to say. I was bewildered at this painful explanation of the gloom which reigned over the house. Presently Fred ? 3 1-2? ?/] ma a flflf ikifl UlUBGU lilt) CJfCB auu ICIl* UlC ?v lU^&ob ?uui strange and unwelcome piece of news. I am naturally somewhat selfish, and before very'long my sympathy was diverted in some measure from my host to myself. It occurred to me thai it was by no means a pleasant prospect to be a guest in a house the mistress ol which was mad. It was not altogether kind of Fred to invite me, I thought, under the circumstances, without some explanation of his wife's state. I began to feel quite at injured man. I was quite tired of my own company, and Fred was fast asleep. So I opened the door softly and made my way down to the hall. As I passed an open door Mrs. Hallaton appeared and beckoned me in. I had no alternative but to obey her invitation. "Mr. Neillson," she said, in an agitated tone, "as you are going to stop here for a day or two, there is something connected with this household which you ought to know. Has my husband told you anything?" I bowed and told her gravely that I knew all, and that she had my profound est sympathy. She sighed. "Perhaps you are surprised that I should ask whether Fred had told you," she said, turning a little away from me. "It seems strange, doesn't it, that one should be mad and be conscious of it ? It only comes on in fits, and they are terrible. She shuddered, and so, to tell the truth, did I. tlS?ch a phase of madness is probably not incurable," I ventured to suggest timidlv. "Incurable! of coursr it is not incurable," she answered, vehemently. I edged a little toward the door. I had no experience in talking with lunatics, and felt anything but comfortable in my present position. Mrs. Hallaton was beginning to look very excited and dangerous. "Of course if you are frightened, Mr. Neillson," she said a little contemptuously, "you can leave us whenever you please. These fits do not come on often, but they are anything but pleasant things to witness when they do come on." ?I should imagine so," I assented, devoutly hoping a tit was not then pending. Soon I managed to make my adieu, and with a sigh of relief found myself oace more in the hall. I mide my way to Eurdett's room, but he had i i.- L?i 3 ????!? 11 guns lu ueu, uuu seeing i\, wo> ucunv xa. o'clock, I decided to go to bed, and, preceded by a servant (I could never have found the way myself), I mounted again the wide stairs and threaded the numerous passages which led to my room. It was at the end of a wide corridor, on either side of which were six doors. ''Does any one sleep up here?" I asked the man as he bade me good night. He pointed to a door exactly opposite mine. "That is the master's room, sir," he replied; and the one at the bottom end is Mrs. Hallaton's. No one else sleeps in this part of the house. The servants' rooms are all in the north wing." I am generally able to sleep at whatever hour I retire; but it was early, and the fire looked tempting; so, instead of i immediately undressing, I changed my coat for a smoking jacket, and, lighting a pipe, made myself comfortable in an easy chair. Soon I heard Mrs. Hallaton's . v.:-.- iiMx ?.4 . V'-Vv'. light footsteps ascend the stairs, and the door of her room open and close, and a little while afterward Fred halted outside my door to bid me a cheery goodnight, and then entered the room opposite. How long I sat Ihere I cannot tell, for I fell into a heavy doze, and- when I woke up with a sudden start it was witfi" the unejsy consciousness that something unusual had awakened me. I sprang to my feet and looked fearfully around. The flickerinc flames of mv fire, almost burned out, -were still sufficient to show me that no one hr.d entered the room; but while I stood there with strained senses I heard a sound which made my blood run cold within me; and, although I am no coward, I shivered with fear. It was the half-muffled shriek of & woman in agony, and it came from Mrs. Hallaton'i room. For a moment I wa3 powerless to move; then I hastily unlocked my door, and, hurrying down the corridor, knocked at hers. There was no answer. I tried the handle; it was locked; but, listening for a moment, I could hear the sound of a woman gasping for breath. I rushed back along the corridor to Fred's room. The door was closed, but unlocked, and I threw it open. "Fred 1" I cried; but Fred was not there, nor had the bed been Blept on. A candle was burning on the dressing table, and in the right hand corner of the room was what appeared to be a hole in the wall, bnt when I stood before it I saw at once that it was a secret passage running parallel with the corroidor. Looking down it, I could see a light at the other end, and knowing it must lead into Mrs. Hallaton's room, I caught up the candle and bending almost double half ran. half crept along it, until I reached its other extremity and founi myself in Mrs. Hallaton's room. I stood upright and glanced half eagerly, half fearfully around. The room was empty, but th6 window directly opposite to me was open, and as my eyes fell upon it I stood petrified with a dull sickening horror, and the candle dropped with a crash from my nerveless fingers. There wa? a miniature balcony outside the window, i ? . - a T-* i rr.ii.j.

The moon was shining full 011 his face, ghostly aad demoniacal, with the raging fire of the madman in his eyes and the imbecile grin of the lunatic on his thin lips. In a moment the truth fashed upon me, and as I stood there gaping and horror struck he saw me and burst iuto u fit of wild laughter. "Ha, ha, ha I You Neillson? Whata joke! See what a glorious view of the grounds! Come and bend over, man; 1 Uo VIA?r?Vif molro UVU 1/ l/t aiiaiu* X/UVO WLAW uvtguv muaw you dizzy? It's made her;" and he motioned to the insensible figure of his wife, whom he still held clasped in his arms. "Do you know what I am going to do with her? I'm going to chuck her down there," and he pointed to the garden below. "A mad woman is of no use to anyone. Come and lend me a hand." Mechanically I rushed to the balcony and strove to wrench from his encircling gi asp the fainting form of his wife. Like a flash his imbecile grin vanished and his eyes filled with a malignant fury as he let go his grasp of his wife and sprang at me like a tiger cat. It was in vain that I wrestled with him. His long arms were around me and held me as if I were in a vice. I tried to shout for help, but my tongue cleaved to the roof of my mouth, and a faint gargling was all the sound I could command. Nearer and nearer we drew to tho parapet's edge, until at last I could see the lawa below, studded with flower beds like the pattern of some fancy work; for Qaulby Hali was built high, and we were on the third story. 1 felt his hot breath in my face, and caught his diabolical look of triumph as he slowly forced me back* ward against the outside rail, which creaked and swerved with my weight, and then my struggling feet Beemed to riart with the earth, 'as with a wild yell of: ' "Leicester! Leicester!'' I opened my. eyes and sat up with a start. The paper had slipped from my fingers, and the train was slowly steaming into Leicester station, and there, standing upon the platform, smiling and robust, looking the very picture of health, was Fred Hallaton. "WITH HER LITTLE HAND IN MINE." That Christmas party at Gaulby Hall was the most enjoyable I was ever at, and the people (the house was crammed full of visitors) the most entertaining and agreeable I ever met. There was on? young person especially?a Miss Alica Pratison she was then?with whom I got on remarkably well. I never enjoyed a visit so much in my life as I did that one, nor a nue so raucu as uue anmuwu when Miss Pratison and I, after a capital run, rode home together with her little hand in mine and our horses very close together. Next Christmas, if Alice doesn't object, I mean to have a jolly little house party of my own. A Clirismas Dinner. | A well-dressed but impecunious indi vidual entered a not very pretentious looking restaurant on Christinas Day, and, umrs'naling all the dignity he could, ordered the waiter to place his best Christmas dinner before. He ate ravenously, and every ouce in a while cast futive glances at the door, as if calculating how may steps it would take to get outside of it. After partaking of his meal, he walked to the cashier's desk with the air of a millinnaim nnrl nlacinc a ten-dollar Confederate note before the eyes of the astonished clerk, said: "Change, please." "Why, that's no good," said the cashier. "Well, neither was the dinner," answered the well-dressed but impecunious individual,who with a hop, skip and jump, went into the outer ati and was lost to sight for avermoro I | J \I The Shoe Violin. j A Paris newspaper recently announced the sale of one of the most curious vioI lins in the world. It formerly belonged j to Paganini, the great violinist, and at first sight merely presents the appearj ance of a misshapen wooden shoe. Its | history is curious, and not without inI terest. During the winter of 1838 Paganini j was living in Rue de la Victoria. One I day a large box was brought there by the Normandy diligence, on opening which he found two inner boxes, and, wrapped carefully in the folds of tissue Tinner, a wooden shoe and a letter. I?I?1 ~ stating that the writer, having heard much of the wonderful genius of the violinist, begged, as a proof of his devotion to music, that Paganini would play in public on the oddly constructed instrument inclosed. At first Paganini felt this to be an impertinent satire,and mentioned the facts, with some show of temper, to his friend, the Chevalier de Baride. The latter tnnlr tho fiVinp to n virtlin maker, who converted it into a remarkably sweet toned instrument, and Paganini was pressed to try the shoe violin in public. He not only did so, but performed upon it some of his most difficult fantasias. which facts, in the handwriting of violinist, are now recorded on the violiD itself. -*-Neio York Telegram.

At last a ball happened to hit the thread to which the egg was fastened and it fell to the ground Without breaking.
