One glance in the beautiful nur
sery unsealed his eyes. There, by

riant tresses (ailing in glossy tree

little fellow in her lap clutched at
one long, sliinuiug curl, crowed and
laughed as well as he could for
aunty's smothering kisses.
A sudden revulsion of feeling
came to the fatliei's heart at the
sight of the sweet home picture.
Six months after that time Alice
uas dieeted for a patty. Bat this
time the party was to be given in
her own house, and in honor Ol
i Mallei's marriage. Even the bride
did not look lovelier, for nothing
now ever occurred to mar Alice's
happiness, and happiness, alter all,
is the best preservative of beauty.
Prom time aim,ist out of mind
the old families ot Virginia have
been accustomed to serve up then
friends a stew known as the "Bruns?
wick stew." T has long been a
*j 11 stion in dispute as to the origin
of this "stew." The true history
of it is about as follows: During
the war of 1812 there was a man
named .lames Matthews, who was
a soldier in that war. He was
from the red oak neighborhood m
Hrunswick county. Va. He was
also a sipiirrel hunter, and it was
his way of cooking the squirrel
which gained hi in much popularity
and eclat with the ladies.
Hi? mode of cooking a squirrel
was quite simple, as I,,Hows: After
dressing it nicely, the squirrel was
set to cooking early in the morn?
ing, so that it might be ready for
a 'J o'clock dinner. It was kept
stewing continually, water being
added to supply evaporation, until
it was BO thoroughly done that the
flesh wonld separate from the bones.
which wf.ro taken out and thi
seasoned t" the taste, not having
any vegetables whatever in it. This
was the first Brunswick stew, of
1816, and continued to be until
'? ?!, when the tomato had br?
e?me known as a most excellent
vegetable. About this time a man
! by the name of Ned Smith, (from
j the same county) conceived the idea
1 Of improving "Matthew's stew" by
tin-addition of the tomato, onion,
corn, potatoes, middling fresh but?
ter and light bread.
The original receipts for making
lins '-stew," after the tomato was
known to ho a most excellent article
ot food, is as follows: Take one
Squirrel, fresh and nice, a half
pound of middling, cnt thin and
with skin off, and water m siilb
den) quantity. Put on at 8 o'clock
to cook for fire hour?, when the
! flesh will leave the boues of the
\ sqairnl, which should bo taken out.
Now add one ipiart of tomatoes
(peeled) one small onion, one half
pound of butter, (fresh), one g ""I
size Irish potato, two ears of coin,
with the grain? split down each
row before cutting from the cob.
Then a sufficient quantity of sweet
light bread should be added with
the tomatoes just one hour before
dinner. Now, season to the taste
with both black and r. d pepper,
and von have the genuine Bruna
wickjsquirrel stew.
It is a remarkable fact that no
other flesh will impart the delicate
wild flavor as the squirrel, hence
there is nothing whatever to take
its place.--NaiionaX Republican.

article in question states, "tl
i.King .season now drawing to
close ha-, afforded the admirers i
horses p irticularly good sport," b
that "while the races of thoioug
lucds m Maryland have been up
the standard, the race? for trottiu
inn -es have been superior to thoi
of previous seasons.' Tin. trul
is, ih.it although m earlier days <
the turf Virginia look the lead ol s
(?oin|ie'itois and Man?an,I w.
not far behind, the superiority l<

passed over in these latter da\ s |
Kentucky. That greater attentio
.should now lie given in Mar.vlau
o 11 otters is natural for there is
i lore extensive demand for thei
than ever before, and the speed I
?hem, by judicious breeding an
training, and perhaps, though m
always the case, by an infusion <
the blood of thoroughbreds, hi
bien wonderfully increased. Tli
market for last trotters is then
fore always a good one. and whei
ever a trotter turns up that isequi
: to those owned by the late M
Vatiderbilt or Mr. Robert Bonne
the sum he will letch amounts to
considerable fortune to the luck
owner. It is. therefore, wort
i while for farmers to breed occasioi
j ally from good trotting stock, an
: to take some pains in trainin
likely colts, as it costs no more t
raise them than those of inferid
quality. Some on? of these colt
may develop a speed equal to th
best, and thus obtain the vei
] highest fancy price. Many other
may be able to trot in or soinew li;i
below -.?'!<>, and thus command
good round sum, while others, oui
side of competing points, willm?k
good roadsters. There is goo
reason consequently in the mat
agers of our county fairs enconrar
ing trotting matches, tor apai
from the pleasure lelt in them b
visitors there la a material inter?s
connected with such races. The,
give publicity to the qualities c
local trotters, and enable men wh
are experts to judge ol tlM piasen
value of the best of them, and 0
what their prospective value migh

dicions training and careful hand
ling. That there la money to b
made m i a,sing good trotters i

Ht Honing tracks built in Mary
'? laud duiing the season, and tin
efforts made in some of the coon
, ties ol the State "to have the tim?
ing mads put in good condition to
i training and speeding." There L
another matter referred to in tin
article on which we have base?
these remarks which is altojpethe
worth noticing in this connection
l! s that "the mads around llalli
inore city do not afford much facil
itv for speeding horses, nor. in fact
for ordinary driving, or even fo:
the proper enjoyment of carriagi
tiding." The truth of this every
body koowa who has had 0
to pasa over our suburban high?
ways. Now, while it would Im
seriously objectionable to mak(
trotting tracks of these highways
and while it is very truly said in
behalf of better roads that mon
toll would be taken at the tollgatef
?with which the country commis
smners have nothing to do?ant!
while it is also quite true that
"pleasure drivers on them would ai
I a rule spend money in the country,
; in the way of refreshments, a pail
of which would go to pay an inter
nal revenue tax," the really strong
ground to be taken is that the
county roads ought to be put in
the best condition, not simply to
encourage trotting or pleasure driv?
ing, or for the comfort of those
who nde in carriages, bot because
good roads me essentially ncces
saiy to facilitate travel and traffic

Tu attain nona in ibe art of
decorating dinner tallies need? n
tboaghtfal eje and ? discreet baud.
The primary objeol is : , enhance
i he elegance ol the table,

And Utegaeeti be more contented,
Therefore the decorations moat be
subordinated to the comfort -it
thoH ?ho .iu- :t, partake of tlio

fot tin' ciitci talo men) of loi
mi, mu? it Bhoald never lie said of
tlioin that the servants bad all the
pleasure the* conld aflord, while
tbe gueata trere simply made nn
(?(iiiirnitalile. The old epergne ami
the golden bowl ?f gandj flowers
interfered ??Mi ciiiiviitalion, made
Hie table heavi and uate itatioun,
and indicated that the dinner ?as
prepared tor oeremonj rather than
im enjojment, in aelectiug recep
lacles im Bowera and In,
should lie borne in mind that a
cleat \ tew acroaa tbe table is al?
ways tu lie desired, and thai sim?
ple designs characterized bv dis?
tinctness and elegance aie to he
preferred before iboae that arc
complex and elaborate, evi n ?I
these last should happen to be in
tbe beal taste, considered apart
from the purpose they are intended
for. There are occarions when
elaborate and costlj works ore
found appropriate, bot, as a rule,
they are the very things we do nol
want. All c,o!<! and silver recep'
acles are more or less objectionable;
nevertheless, they arc no! to be
condemned in toto, because we
hare seen them need with admir?
able effect, ajul the sparkle of
metal is appropriate to festivity. -
The large silvered plateau is usual?
ly a cold obstruction or a glaring
mockery, and even plant?, If too
large or mtoo great plenty, are apt
to suggent that the table la an imita?
tion of a nnraery or a greengrocei'a
?.hop. If the comfort of t he guesl I
is not considered in the adaptation
of the deeoratlona, thev are likely
to spoil the dinner they were in?
tended to embellish.
Women and Sleeolng-Car Porters.
Interview with {few Ifork Central Porter.
1 have been on the road tor fif?
teen years and I know of only two
ladies who ever offered to pay the
porter for his trouble, They arc
from Chicago and are sisters of a
voungman who travels frequently
over my tun. The family is all :
alike, and I have yet to lind one of
them who ever carried more than a
small gripsack, not too large to be
carried easily in the hand. There
is some pleasure for a porter to
meet lolks like I hose, especially
when the three Of them come ill to
gether. I like their free und inde?
penden! style, as tbej never want
any attendance, :fnd I In- ; oung la
,1ns, before retiring, baud me their
bottles ot patent polish, so that I
won't spoil their shoes with ehe ip
blacking. In the morning they
stand up to be brushed, and the
two gills drop me a qn irterapiece.
They always consider tbe porter,
for i met tiie sisters when I was mi
the New Yoi ?< inn, on an extra, and
the] passed out lour bus when h ill"
the men m I he car who i ode through
from Chicago only ga\ e tbe regul ir
one-nigbl tipof a quarter, i
they got the habit irom their broth?
er ; but anyway I fhau'l forget
them, as tbey are tbe only two wo?
men in tbe iniicd State - whoever
remembered the poor porter.
