August 3.—(Special.) The citizens of Meridian today con gratulated themselves that there was no “blue law” to prevent them from having ordinary pleasures and buying newspapers, cigars, soda water and ice cream, etc. It was all “much ado about nothing,” it was a case wherein “the King of France, with 40,000 men, marched up the hill and then marched dow’n again.” It is believed that it was a case wherein the ma>h»r was afraid the grand jury might take some action against him for not enforieng the strict provisions of a law, undertaking to regulate conduct, and which does not deal with crime, had grown too old to fit changed conditions. Besides the proposition that certain things could not be clone on the Sabbath, such as the printing and distribution of daily papers, is considered absurd and not warranted by law, according to some of the best lawyers of the city. It is known that Judge Buckley favors !a liberal construction of the law, and w'hile it is bad enough it is not the "raw head and bloody bones” that it is construed to be in some places. This is probably the last time that the people of Meridian will be threat ened with the enforcement of prac tically discarded blue laws. The peo ple are glad it is over. The Smell of Life All the good smells, the wholesome smells, the healthy smells of life and labor were outside the great room, says the Atlantic Monthly. The smell of rain upon the grass and of the flowers consumed by their love for the stars. The heavy smell of smoke that coiled out myriads of chimneys of ships and factories and homes. The dry smell of sawdust and the salty smell of the iron fillings. The odor of mazarine and granaries and warehouses, the kindly smell of argoHles and the rich scent of market places, so dear to the women of the race. The smell of new cloth and new linen, the smell of soap and water and the smell of newly painted paper. The smell of grains and hay and the smell of stables, the warm smell of cattle and sheep that Virgil loved. The smell of milk and wine and plants and metals. And all the good odors of the earth and of the sea and of the sky, and the fra grance of fresh bread, sweetest aroma of the world, and the smell of human sweat, most holy Incense to the divine nostrils of the gods, and all the Olympian perfumes of the heart and the brain and the passions of men, were outside of the great greenish room. But within the old room there was nothing but the smell of old books and the dust of things decayed, and the suffo cated exhalation of old graves and the ashen odor of dissolution and death. HELPING HAND HINTS FOR THE HOME j , By MARION MARL.AND Maraschino Cherries Stone cherries, saving all the juise* that runs from them. Weigh the cher ries and allow sugar, pound for pound, to the fruit. Drain cherries in a col ander, set the fruit on the ice and put juice and sugar together in a pre serving kettle and cook to a thick syrup; add the cherries and simmer all together for 15 minutes. At the end of this time drain off half the syrup ami supply the place with an equal quan tity of Maraschino; bring quickly to the boil, keeping the kettle covered to prevent evaporation of the vola tile liquor. As soon as the boil is reached remove instantly from the fire and put at once into glass jars, seal ing immediately.—Kindness of Mrs. J. S. Never Fail White Cake One and one-half cups sugar, one half cup butter (creamed with the i sugar), one cup sweet milk, added al ternately with two cups flour sifted twice wtih two teaspoons baking povv dere; teaspoon vanilla or rose extract, four eggs. Bake in a moderate oven. Use any filling or frosting desired.— Kindness of Mrs. M. W. Preparing the Hectograph “As 1 often wisli to make copies of letters, recipes, etc., could you give im in you Corner a recipe for preparing a gelatin copier? I have seen these where they could make 40 or 50 copies. "J. W.A.” What you want is directions for mak ing a hectograph. The writing or draw ing to be copied is made upon smooth' paper with aniline ink; then pressed face downward, upon a metal plate coated with gelatin. A number of im pressions may be made from one set of the transferred drawing or inscription. We have members who in days gone by sent in exact directions for prepar ing the hectograph. Watch the letter box for proof that they will do it again to oblige you and myself. To Clean White Voile "Will yon please tell me how to clean a white embroidered voile dress? I have been told that washing will ruin it. How can a ring he removed from a tan wool coat which was made by cleaning with chloroform? "DORA B." As a correspondent has told us late ly, voile shrinks woefully when washed. If you wish to clean it at home you may try this method, which I have used successfully upon line woolen stuffs, as well as upon fabrics of mixed wool and silk: Ray the gown upon a table covered with a white cloth. Tak ing a breadth at a time, go over all of it with a soft brush dipped in a mixture of talcum powder, two-thirds, and fine borax, one-third. Mix well and rub into every thread of the voile, always with the nap. Having gone over the stuff once, shake the powder out gently without beating, and apply a fresh supply in the same way. Iyenve this on all night, covering to keep out dust. Two days are better than one, if you have time and patience. Then shake and brush out the powder. It should take the grime with It. If the gowns were not embroidered you might clean with the best quality of English mag nesia. It has a tendency to dull the luster of silk. The ring Is not easily removed. Chloroform should not have left It. Take it to a professional cleaner. Color on Lace Collar “Will you kindly tell me how I may remove the color from a lace collar that was put away in a box where was some pink face powder? The powder was spilled over It. I have already tried boiling It in buttermilk. The col ' lar Is Irish linen thread. SID." Soak again in sour milk all night. Next day after rinsing boll In strong cream of tartar water for half an hour. Rinse and lay in the sun for 10 hours, wetting hourly with cream of tartar water or lemon juice. If the stain still lingers sun for the second day, wetting as before. A weak solu tion of oxalic acid may do tile work more quickly, but It may rut tin threads of the lace unless you rinse It within 10 minutes after the appli cation. Recipe for Dandelion Wine ''Would you please send me the recipe fo rmaklng dandelion wine? I cut it out of the paper, but lost it. T have looked everywhere for It, but have failed to locate it. KATHRYN F." As you have learned through the let ter mailed under your stamp, It Is con trary to our rules to send recipes by post. I repeat the recipe for dandelion wine: Steep dandelton flowers in boil ing water for five minutes and strain off the liquid, pressing the flowers hard Sweeten to taste and add brandy in the proportion of a pint fonevery four gallons of liquid. Put into uncorked bottles and keep in a cool place until fermentation ceases. Draw off and re bottle. Caution in Using Gasoline “Some time ago 1 read a well writ ten letter In the Corner, signed Mrs. P. S. C., headed ‘An Easy Way to Wash Clothes.’ I feel impelled to send a word of warning, ns the daughter of a dear friend lost her life through this method. The water was allowed to get too hot over a gasoline stove before the kerosene end turpentine mixture was added, and an explosion followed. The poor girl was horribly burned and died within a week. “MHS. P. E. Y,r Your warning Is welcome. We can not impress upon the housewifely mind too strongly the absolute necessity of | using gasoline with the irtmost cau tion. The mixture in question should not have been mixed while the boiler was upon the stove. It should have boon taken quite a way from tho tire before the turpentine and kerosene were stirred 1/ito the water. I doubt it it should ever have gone over a gaso line range.
