But sorry is ? of that poor moth? er to whom motherhood has ceas .-d to l>e n cnasc of rejoicing, but has become in? stead a btrrden to be dreaded and looked forward to *r with melancholy ami apprehension.

Tbe basketfuls of green peppers sug? gest all sorts of good things to the house? keeper and makes her sigh tLat she cannot keep this most useful vegetable within reaea the year round, Bays the New York Evening Post. Combined with also auy "left-over," the green pepper possesses possibilities for an un? limited number of appetizing dishee. If the small ends are cut ctlandthe seeds removed the peppers may te (til? ed with creamed salmon or creamed chicken and served bot for luncheon, or they may be filled with bits of cel? ery or cabbage, mixed with mayonaise, chilled, and served as a salad on let? tuce leaves. They may also be cut into rather large bits, fried in olive oil, and served with chicken as a vegetable, or, cut rather small, may be added to cticken mince to its great improve? ment. Perhaps in no way do peppers con? tribute more pleasantly of tneir pun geut tUvor than when steweJ with to? matoes and a bit of onions to a smooth consistency before being folded in an omelet. Any one who has not tried this dish has a gastronomic treat yet in store. This same mixture may also be poured over buttered toast and used ?is a luncheon dish, with or without tho addition of eggs, as is preferred Tne eggs, if added, ure boiled just suf ticieotly to hold the whites firm. The shells are carefully removed and an egg put on each slice of toast. The pepper mixture is poured over and around as a sauce. A recipe is scarce ly necessary for this tomato and pep per combination, as individual taste must decide the proper amount of each ingredient, A be^iuner may take two peppera to medium-sized tomatoes and half of an onion. After removing the seeds of the peppers, cut all into bits, add seasoning and simmer for 10 or 15 minutes. Electricity in Water Mains.? Otlicials of the Water Bure.au have discovered that tbe water main leading from the Roxborongb reservoir, across Weiss', Mill road, to Germantown, has become heavily charged with electri? city, and to that fact have been attribut? ed the recent numerous breaks, as the sections of the pipe were found to be noneycombed to a considerable extent. The electric current is supposed to come from some underground connec tion with the feed wires of the German town or Ridge avenue trolley lines. While repairing a break last week on Weiss road one of the workmen was badly shocked. Assistant Engineer Fuller bad a test, made and found about 40 volts in the pipe. Another test made yesterday at Ridge and Snawmont avenues disclosed 200 volts and one of the workmen had the sole of bis shoe burned and charred while Holding the test wire on the pipes. Both the Traction Company and the Wissabickon it Norristown Trolley Company have been notified to search ior the leak or connection. An em? ploye of the Wissabickon and Norris? town road admitted that his company was being benefited by the leak, as he claimoti it came from the Germantown end of the pipe. His company, he said, had saved 100 tons of coal since the leaking began. While the Water Bureau officials claim they will lose considerable by the pipes being destroyed by the electrical curreut they also state that the water is purer by coming in contract with the electricity, as all germs anil microbes are killed by the stroog charge.? [Philadelphia Record. Got Hi5 Four Wives MiXBD.-Early in the century a man named Churcn lost four wives, who were buried in the same lot in the old cemetery at Atbol, Mass. [a course of time it became nec essury to remuve the remains to anoth er cemetery. The bereaved husband undertook the jjb himself, but iu con? veying the sainted dead in a furniture wagou the . bones unfortunately got mixed, and, when ready for reinter? ment, he was unable to tell whicb was Hannah, etc. Being a very conscientious man, he feared it would be wrong to use th< headstones, so bn procured new one*, which were inscribed as follow.-: '"Here lies Hannah Church, and probably a portion of Emma, who was born," etc. Oj another stone as follow.-: "Sicred to the memory of Emily Church, who seems to be mixed with Matilda, who was boru," etc. Theo follow these lines. Stranger, pause and drop a tear. For Emily Church lies buried hero, Mixed in some perplexing manner With Mary, Matilda and probably Hannah. ?[Columbus Froo Press. An A i)venturous Career.?Richard Hosier died in Suffolk yesterday, aged eighty-lour years. He was the oldest person but one in Sullolk. His six child? ren survive. During the civil war, be? ing too old to enter the regular Con? federate service, he and a number of cohorts carried on a guerrilla warfare near the Denial Swamp with shotguns. He was three times captured and once sentenced to death. He escaped and swam seven miles across Lake Druna moud. I MEDICINAL. Not worth paving attention to, you say.

I believe it is possible to build up a much larger tailoring business in Alexandria than has over existed here. I believe also that while PRICES is a factor, the fiiat and most important thing is THOROUGHLY GOOD WORK. In other words while men waut low prices they also demand good cloth and well cut, and well made garments. I have bought both here and in Europe a bigger stock of high grade cloths than usual, and at advan? tageous prices. I have tho best workmen tbat money can hire, and I'm attending right to business myself as I have been these twolve years. I have carefully counted tho cost of everything; I have figured not how much such work should bring, but how little I caD do it for, and I'm going to make the price $20 PER SUIT, and Robert T. ?rimes's well cut, well made TROUSERS at $5.
