Wbat Bothered the Cook.
A.- lady had a cook who gave her ?very satisfaction, and .she was under the impression that the cook was equal ly satisfied with her place. But ono morning, to the lady's Intense surprise, the cook gave her the usual meath's notice. i "What do you want to leave for, Jane?" asked the' mistress. "I am very much pleased with you, and I thought you were quite comfable here." / "Tes, mum, I'm comfortable enough \n a w.'ty, but" The cook hesitated and fidgeted about. "But what?" queried the mistress. "Well, mum," she blurted out, "the fact is the master doesn't seem to prec?ate my cookery, and I can't stop in a place where my efforts to please are wasted; so I'd rather go, mum.". ""Bat what makes you think that your master doesn't appreciate your cookery? Has he ever complained to yon?'* asked the lady. "No, mum, but my late master was always being laid up through overeat ing-he said he couldn't help doing so because my cookery was so de licious-but master here hasn't been laid up once all the three months I* fe been with yon, and that's just what bothers me so, mum!"

He wanted to take it over to New York, and to keep it from be ing seen he wrapped the pipe around his body, and then put his clothes on over it. A cinch, in turf language, means a girth or saddle band or any thing that is used to keep a saddle on a horse or mule tight. 'Cinching up' means, therefore, tightening up, and is of Spanish origin. As the fellow with tho lead pipe around his body jumped to catch the ferryboat he fell over board, and, of course, the weight of th? lead carried him down. A horseman, in explaining the occurrence, said the thief had 'a lead- pipe cinch,' and he had, and it drowned him."-Washing ton Star. A Matter of Business.

Thc most popular sofa pillows just now are those that bear upon them some trace of the Stars and Stripes. Largo hammock and piazza pillows are made of actual flags, and less ag gressive ones have white stars on a hine ground, the reverse side of the cushion being of red and white stripes. Sometimes a pair of tiny flags are crossed and embroidered iu one corner. It is a trial to osthetic tastes that the colors of our flag aro so pronounced, but the artistic faculty gives way to patriotic sentiment, and the American flag is emphatically tho decorative vogue of the moment. American Women ami Gray Hair. Is it true that thc hair of American women turns gray much earlier than that of the women of other countries? There are those who make the as sertion. It is, too, say these, a thorough gray. While the locks of an English or French woman will late in life show a few stray "basting threads," the head of an American womau at a much younger age is quite blanched, or at least frosted. To two things may the cause of the tendency be ascribed-American air and Am0"""* atmosphere-term? - mons T? '* *UCS ?sent; her rela ....u mends become pretty fam iliar with her and her ways. As a rule, she is not exhilarating society. Her range of topics is too limited, her standards too personal, her ability to turn all subjects around to the one main subject too certain. From mat ters pertaining to the Klondike, to India's coral strand.and including the most approved methods of clipping dogs ears, she quotes but one author ity, ami seems to regard that ono as omniscient and indisputable. Her self-conceit is by no means a minor at tribute of thc engaged girl, but, as one who has made a scientific study of t he species says: "She can't help it, you know, poor thing; she lives insucn a perfect atmosphere of flattery, with incense burning before her in whole sale quantities and all thc time, that it is no wonder her head is iust a bit turned and that she is inspired to act as though the whole solar system revolved about her." But whatever may bc raid against the engaged girl, one thing is always in her favor, thc most captious cannot find fault with it, the most callous must bo glad of it, and it eclipse.; her conceit ns it eclipses lier folly-she is so happy. Philadelphia Times. A Woman I?aker. There is a woman now in New York who has had most serious misfortunes, and yet has shown rare perseverance and energy at the critical moment. Only a ?hort time ago she and her husband lived in a comfortable home in a western city. They owned the property and had been moderately well-to-do. But the husband died very suddenly. Then the insurance on the house gave ont, and soon the widow found it necessary to dispose of the property. Pending the negotiations the house burned to the ground, and although the widow escaped, every thing in* her possession had bean con sumed. She had to borrow clothes be fore leaving for New York, where she had friends. She resolved not to allow her grief to have a serious effect upon her, but to find some immediate source of sup port, aud took the first opportunity that offered. She had made a specially wholesome graham bread for a friend here who was suffering with indiges tion, and his appreciation of it at once suggested a means of support-she would hake and sell bread. Calling at neighboring residences and board ing houses, she at ouco took orders for all she could bake, delivered the bread tho same day, and secured regular customers. With the pro ceeds of successive sales she took in a large supjjly ot* materials, and is steadily increasing the profits. She declares that v.ith her ambit iou sim will not remain poor long, and will soon make a big success of her under taking.- New York Sun. Tho Return of tho Shirt Waist. Shirt waists of plain, solid color are varied with bauds of embroidered in sertion or heavy bands of lace, run ning up or down or crosswise, as the figure may demand, and many of them have bias bauds, cuffs and co.'lar of plaided or striped material. Others of plain, solid colored material have cuffs, collar and front box plait of pol ka-spot material, in which case a plain white tie finishos short nt tho neel;, aud a belt of white is worn. Cotton cheviot, pique ia all colors, duck und ?ae gingham &vo tho popular wash materials for general wear. Stripes are very modish in shirt waists this year, and most of them run around instead of up and down. Bias plaida are also much used,and are very smart looking, but must always b? w?rii with skirts of pl?iii;solid color. Tucki! are used in every conceivable way on shirt waists of all materials and are applied dp and down, across, zig-zag, Slanting; in clusters or regulation spaces', as fancy or figure dictates. Sleeves are smaller than they were last yearj and the cuffs in mauy cases are attached. Eveii where the fronts cannot be called a real blous? they pouch a little, and the gathers extend almost the entire length of the shoul der instead of being all directly in the front. The black satin shirt waist, though worn^much during the winter, is ir repressible, and is continually de veloping some new feature. For traveling, this waist is decidedly the most stylish and durable, shedding the dust and cinders. "While many of the waists have de tachable collars and cuffs to match, the white linen ones will be as much worn as ever. Belts there are in all varieties; solid gold belts studded with precious and semi-precious stones; metal belts fairly blazing with imita tion gems; velvet, satin, silk and leather belts, with gorgeous metal nud jeweled buckles, and enameled ones designed in opeuwrought patterns. With the wash shirt waist, however, quite the prettiest is the leather belt, which fastens with plain harness buckles.-Womau's Home Companion. Fashion Notes. Covert cloth, poplins and Bedford cords aro shown in great variety for thc indispensable tailor made suit. Piquets, marseilles,lawns and linens will be much worn this summer for morning gowns, as well as at tho watering places. A very pretty and fashionable de sign in table linen is the shamrock. It is used on napkins, and promises to become popular. Persian mauve, palo ?u colorar? r1*" with large ...una, is another of the pretty designs in walking hats. All the buttons are on the jeweled order, with the excejition of those in jet and gold, and these have the ef fect of onyx and are not liko what aro generally known as jet buttons. This season tho wood colors and grays are the principal colors, and the wood colors are smarter than the grays, for the last named were worn all last summer, it will bo remem bered. A pretty morning hat is a black sailor of rough straw with a band of burnt orange satin ribbon, which fin ishes in a spiral of the same. Th^o black spaugled quills complete vao trimming. A hat that milliners say will be much worn is of green soft silk, a number ol' puff ruflies forming the crown and brim, and trimmed at tho sido with a spiral puff and a largo white aigrette. There is a great variety in hats, the new Alpine being among the ones that have been favorably received already. It is gray, with wide ribbon and band, finished in the left side- with a bunch of long cock feathers. Buckles and faucy buttons are among the new things on gowns. The buckles may not buckle and the but tons may not be used to fasten tho waist, but they must needs be worn in order to give the projier smart finish to any gown. ' Soft light tints will be very greatly fa* Ji ed for evening wear, despite tho fact that the most intense aud strik'ng colors, such as deep orange, geranium and poj>py red, grass green and im perial purple are so much used by Parisian ateliers. Yellow lace for trimming white fabrics will be much in favor, but there is a great variety in the shades chosen. Faille and light tones pre vail over the yellows with the dash of pink which was so popular a few sea sons ago. The combination of Avhite and straw colored lac?is used not only for gowns,but also for blouse bodices. The variety iu transparent mate rials for summer gowns is bewildering in extont as well as color, and among laco grenadines, canvas organdies, mohair Swiss, the various pineapple weaves and lace zephyrs, it is difficult to choose. The silk and wool bareges are very sheer and thin this season, | and the new nun's veilings are as cobwebby as possible. In negligee gowns, loose robes fall ing from thc shoulders aud neck in Oriental fashion seem to havo the preference. Ribbons sewn into the side jeams are frequently knotted across the front. An innovation in sleeves is noticerblo in some of the most handsome silk gowus. The sleeves either hang in a long point from tho bend of the arm or else are cut to the elbow only and finished with ruffles of lace. A Den or Rattlesnakes.

It Is Remarkable How Quiciiiy fH?f Adapt Themselves to the Military Service-Charge of a Riderless Steed at Murfrcesboro-Answer Bugle Calls. "It is remarkable how quickly horses adapt themselves to, the mili tary service," said an old Soldi ar"; "Every artilleryman knows that they learn the bugle calls and the evolu tions quicker than the men, ?s a rule, They soon acquire a uniform gait, which is about the same as what we call the route step or the usual march ing step. If the horses did not ac quire the same gait as the infantry, there would be varying distances be tween the different arms pf the ser* vice-that ?B; between the' infantry' and the cavalry, artillery, and the commanders and their escorts. In the drills in the artillery service the horses will preserve their alignment as. well as the infantry r?nk; "I shall always remember one illus tration of this trait which I noted at a very exciting and critical moment of a battle during our civil war. In order to save some of bur infantry from be ing surrounded and captured, the commander of one of our batteries quickly mounted the caunoneers on the guns and put the whole battery at a dead gallop across a stretch of mead ow about half a mile wide. I was quite accustomed to such sights, but when that dashing company was half way across the field I noticed the in spiring array, and for a moment was lost in rapt admiration of the magnifi cent picture. Every driver was ply ing whip and spur, the great guns wore rocking and thundering over the ground, and every horse reeking with foam and full of animation and excite ment was straining every muscle as he galloped forward, yet a straight line drawn along in front Would have touched the noses Of the lead horses in front of tho six guns. That was ad artillery charge, one of the most thrill ing sigh's iu the evolutions of war? "It is surprising how quickly horses learn the bugle calls, Lot the first note of tho feed or water call be sounded, and instantly thero will be a stamping, kickingand neighing among the horses. Once, during a terrible night'storm in cami), our hciv.es were seized with such terror that those of nearly every battery broko loose and sca'tered about. Tho next morning th'jre was a wild rush among the ar tillerymen to capture horses for use. All was excitement, and the horses re fused to be caught.

A Submarine Boat WI ?ih; a Curions His tory Xow Ly i nc Neglected. Thc submarine torpedo boat with which Mr. Holland has been experi menting about New York is not his first venture in that line. Sixteen years ago he built a similar vessel for several Ii i di patriots, headed by James Beynools ol'New Haven,Conn., and the vessel was among the effects of Mr. Reynolds' estate. For the last thirteen years it has lain neglected under an old shod near Mill River, New Haven, Ult ils owners assert that it ia, still seaworthy. It is a cigar Bhaped affair, built of iron, thirty fact long, and about six in depth at the deepest p??t. It had no electrical equipment, but was provided with steam engines and a propeller. All thc machinery was removed long ago. The cruft has always been known as the Fenian ram. It is said that it had several1 trials sixteen years ago off thc New Jersey coast, and Mr. Reynolds dftriug his lifetime was ac customed to declare that it had ful filled every expeclatiun entertained of it. He "himself was on board during one trip. Tie Fenian ram did not submerge itself : by diving, like the new Holland boat, but sank. Experi ments wero mude to test its effective ness as a ram, with encouraging je suits. Still attached to its bow is a sort of boring apparatus, intended to penetrate bulls either of iron or wood. It has uo difficulty in staying sub merged for five.hours. It cost, ac cordiug to tho statement of its present keeper, about $i0;000, all- of which is believed to havo been furnished by the Feniatu societies. No one seems to know who is the owner of Ibis craft. It is at present in charge of Capt. P. O'Connor, son in-law of James Reynolds. Mr. Rey nolds, who brought it to New Haven thirteen years ago, was an Irish patriot of world-wide fame. It was ho who was principally instrumental in arranging for the voyage of the merchantman Catalpa, which sailed from ls'ev jistlfoid in 1875 under the Qomm^ud of Captain John Agthony, and, after a series of adventures, effected tll? esc?pe ?f tho six prisoners at Fi-flemttntle, Australia, condemned to life imprlB?'tiniiWt foi- their part in the Fenian rising in iSOOi They were the companions of John Boyle O B dill 5'/ who made his own escape the year be fore": .Ml'.- Eeynolds risked all his property lu* t??is venture, and was ever afterward familiarly itriowfl ss Catalpa Jim. He died in New Haven last Au gust. A few months previous lo his death a. hanqu?t was given in his honor fit the Now Haven house. It is believed ?li??i Mr? Holland's first submarine boat was con sf niched for Mr. Eeynolds and other Fenians ror us? against the British govern ment. At the lime 6'f her construc tion several well know New Haven men had gone to Ireland and been imprisoned on account of their activity against England. It is thought that Mr. Eeynolds nourished plans for their' r?scu?j rtud that his sub marine ram was built iii view of his intended operations. It was never put to any practical use.

CRANT IN THE WILDERNESS. A Wounded Soldier's Close Study of tlio Great Commander. "Oh, it was an intensely interesting study-my study of Grant at close range in the Wilderness!" The speaker was the Eev. Theodore Gerrish, a Maine veteran of the civil war. "Ah! I can never forget that terrible day in ?864, when was fought the first of the two days' bloody battles of the Wilderness," continued Mr. Gerrish. "I at the time lay wounded under a tree, close to Grant's headquarters in th? ?ield? and hour after hour watched Grant; "While serving as a private in my rfeginieut, I was severely, though not dangerously wounded, and, like a great number of others, was taken to thc rear. I was placed under a small tree, and, as ft happened, within a few rods of the spot where the leader of that mighty host of Union warrioiS was conducting the battle. In fact, I was so near to Grant that I could see every motion he made, and critically study him in the momentous, fearfully responsible role he was playing. "And such a study! "Why, it is not hyperbola -' ' that it was worth -s" abilitv T _wiuity of its fall. . ".juody was agitated except him who had most cause for travail. "Staff officers would gallo}) up every .few minutes, to each of whom he would give a brief written order for 'transmission to some 'brigade or divi dion commander, perhaps involving the fate of. thousands of brave men. Orderlies were : dashing hither and yon. General Meade, on his alert charger, was so nervous that he could not long remain in his saddle, but would dismount and pace the ground a while, remount and sit a short time, then off and wnlk as before, his hand some face wearing a worn and troubled look; and yet, through these long and terrible hours Grant never once lost his head, but kept constantly in his mind's eye all thc details and intrica cies of that stupendous plan which devolved on him alone to carry out - the solution of that mighty problem, the key to which lay in his right hand, which held the fateful pencil. "Yes, Grant knew precisely what he was about, and he lc new, moreover, that a cool bead and well balanced mind were all-essential to the great work in hand. "The lesson of that day's study of Grant was, that he wan one of tho most wonderful men this century -has produced." Beecher's lion >Iot. When Henry Ward Beecher was ir. Indianapolis lhere was a sture where the different ministers used to drop in to hear the news and to try each other's mettle with a joke. On one occasion Mr. Beecher, while riding to ono of the stations of his mission, was I brown over bis horse's head in crossing a river, and was thoroughly soaked. The incident, of course, furnished talk for the habitues of the store, and, when he made his appearance the next day he was greeted by his good friend, the Bap tist minister. "Oh, ho, Beecher,glad to seo you. I thought you'd have to come into our Avays at last. You've been immersed, I hear; you are as good as any of us now." A general langh followed this sally. "Poh.poh!" was the ready response, "my immer sion was a different-thing from that of your converts; you see, I was im mersed by a horse, not by au ass!" A chorus proclaimed that Beecher had got the best of the joke after all. - Success. Where Life Is Lonpcst. More peojjlo over IOU years old are found in mild climates than in tho higher latitudes.

The mother Lad made no arrangements for such a large family, and something had to be done to provide nourishment for the younk rooters, so tbs inventive genius of Barry came into play. He made a large tin receptacle, and around the bottom of this malnature reservoir he attached short pieces of rubber hose to small holes made for the purpose. On the ends are fastened the pail is filled with milk, and the young pigs waddle up and draw nour ishment. The litter Is doing well. New York Press. Educnto Your nowols With Cascarete.

Something more than 50 years ago a tunnel was built about GO feet* be low the street level of the city of Edin burgh. It was used for a time by one of the r.xllwsr companies, but has been Tor many years abandoned. About ten years ago a number of capitalists con ceived the idea of using this tunne as a place for growing mushrooms. Th? temperature and the darkness are per fectly suited to the growth of this edi ble, and the experiment has proven a great success. As much as 5,000 mounds of mushrooms have been sent ou't in one month from the 800 beds jtepV in active operation. - The output is so xar&e that it is said to control the market, and flas decidedly affected the jrowing kof mushrooms in France. . fU?C* Grave for Sale.

Levi :<"neclTof Town hurst, Lackawanna Courcy,, has found these animals particularly numerous In Coolbaugh township. In ^Qe day County paid bounties on fivo wh'v cats anti five foxes shot in one locality. Under the Scalp act of 1SS5 about, $150,000 was expended in that year in the state for different kinds of birds and mammals. After the law ; had been In- operation about two years it was found that the damage done through the killing of beneficial birds of prey and numerous other kinds of feathered animals which were substi tuted for hawks and owls was far greater than the good accomplished by the killing of these birds. In 1887 that part of the act which related to hawks and owls was repealed. Throughout the state foxes, red and gray; wildcats, mink and weasels, or ermine, are much more numerous than is commonly supposed. Bounties were paid for 42,202 foxes. 30,4-?S mink, 13, i'S4 weasels and 3,081 wildcats. The foregoing figures represent only a por tion of the bounties of the state. The counties of Aliegh3iy, Philadelphia and Delaware paid practically no boun ties for birds or mam?is under the act of 1885; all other counties paid liber ally for this unwise measure.-New York Press.

In the splendid studios of the Phila delphia companies, of tho mills of Bigelow, Hartford, Lowell, Smith and Higgins, designs are made almost ex clusively by native talent, and excel lent salaries are paid, with valuable prizes for competition, lt is better to be a carpet designer than to starvo.
