Queen's Fruit Grower. whn vnu are erettine the soap, mops, brut-bee and other things needed for the spring house cleaning, alaya rti,iriA a. hox of powdered borax in vour list, for there is nothing el-e that you can use in so many ways, it is a very cheap and effective cleansing miinu the work easier, and is tiafactorv in every way than ammonia, sal soda, or other things fnr that nurDose. windocs. dissolve a little w.t in warm water, wash them in rl nntid. wme them dry, and nnllah with paper. A sfonger solu t.inn mav be used to 'clean the kitchen sink and pipes and will remove all im mirltiiM f rnm them. To clean marble and remove dirt and ai colorations fro-n Das, copper iu other me'als without the slightest i.inrir. and a tab esuo-nful of boi ax to a pint of hot water. Dip a small brush into it, and scrub until clean, then dry inn nolifeh with old flannel. The am solution may be used to clean alabaster or bronze ornament; rinse wen auu dry with .oft- cloth. An excellent soap is made by dis solving three ounct s of borax and two bars of good white soap in two quarts of hot water. The soap should be shaved fine before it is put io and the mixture stirred until the so-ip melts. This will f rm a jelly. A ttblespoon ful stirred into a gallon of soft water make a good suds, and when used for cleaning wood work removes finger mrkB and other soiled places without iniurin- t paint. It is also good for waehlngfloil cloth and matting, leaving it brigrit and unladed. This soap used in the water where blankets and lace curtains are washed greatly as sists in tne cleaning process. If t-a and coffee oot- have become discolored, fill thens-half full of water, add a little borax and boil fif'een or twenty minutes: rinse and wipe dry and you will find them as bright as new. Any kind of tin or granite ves sels may be cleaned in the same way. If you are troubled with ants, roaches or beetles in your closet or pantry, wash all the shelves and dry thorough ly. Then sprinkle powdered borax over them and cover with clean paper. The yeats will speedly depart. You need not be afraid to use plenty of it for it is absolutely harmless. The free use of borax deodor'zes and purifies the cellar and any other place where it is used: and tbee are only a few of the manifold usas that will suggest them selves after giving trial. A Hint to Cooks. 'M&nv cood cooks who scarcely know I the meaning of failure have to acknow-1 ledire tb em stives beaten wnen it comes ; to a question of making a "merineue' the present time. Managers of men which will "stand up" after it is cook- aeeries and emploje-ja at the various ed. The secret seems to lie partly in zoological gardens kr ow that the the fact that it should not be cooked at elephants under their care are p re all but6imply dried. To make a good pared to go on a wild drunk whenever meringue for a pie tbe whites of three opportunity offers. Whisky is offi fresh egea are needed (preserved or cially given them when they are ill or case eggs will not do.)

Bears and monkeys Have ready four tablespoon f els of slfi. drink beer like Gorman students, and ed powdered sugar. And to the eggs f ahout half a tablespoonful at a time, keeping up the beating, vigorously. When all sugar is adaeJ, j toeat a minute or two longer. If tbe meringue is for pie. tbe pie should be thoroughly baked before the meriDgue is spread over it. Then, when tbe me ringue is on, the pie should be placed just inside the oven door and left there, with the oven door open, fiftct n min utes. After that tbe dour can be clos ed just a minute, till the top of tbeme rintiiie takes on a delicate goideu brown tinge. This meringue, with the ;aaoition of two more tablespoontuls of ugar and a cup of chopped nut meats, ifirs or dates, or all combined, makes an excellent filing for layer cakes. Spread a portion on each layer and dry, with out browning, before placing the lay ers together. A little almond or va nilla essence improves tbe meringue when used for cake. New York Tri bune. CrossiDg Fowls Destroys Thrm. American Gardening. Nine persons in ten who begin with pare breeds some how become Inclined to cross them with some breed that, ia their opinion, will make an improve-' iment, and the result has always been a failure. The b-eeders of cattle do not even entertain such an idea as crossing breeds; as they well know tbat to cross a Holrtein (m'lk-proou'ing breed) with a Sh"rtnorn (bef-produciDg) would resultin an animal inferior as a jnlli' np hostnpnfliro", Rut pom" roul trymen who have good breeds will di -liberately serosa with no object in Tiew. The majority suppose tbat to se cure hardines- the new blood h "lr) he from another breed. Take the Dork ing a fine table fowl and it- owner, desiring more eggs with tabl-" quali ties, crosses his Dorkings wi h Mi norcas. The result is that the ff springs are reduced in table qulry and are inferior to tbe Minorca as layers. The same happens with other breeds and crosses. If one desires to combine two breeds the nea'esr, ap proach thereto should be to kep tw breeds and have them in separate yards. When crossing tbe breeds h( ins it never ends until ail th fowls .are mixed and become nondescripts. But for the tendency to cross the. 'breeds there would be fewer common fowls on farms. Many farmers srive the pure breeds their attention at times, but destroy their flocks bycross ivg with the belief tbat they will gain IP doisr- SIT OX THE FLOOIi. This Method Declined to ! the Most Healthy and Coinfoi table. From the Memphis Solm'tur. An eminent Kngrltb physuvan, Sir James Crichton Browne, who ha won derful aptitude for makiutr medical sul"j"Cts interesting to the public at large, announces that men nd women wouli derive g-eat btm fit from siit ng on th lloor instead of on chairs. Wo men would benefit even more tbau men bv the practice. The position of sittin? on the floor or th ground is more natural than that of eitung on a cbair. It was once ernTal with the entire human race. It is both healthy and natural. The exercise of getting up from and do wd to the floor is beneficial. Th'-ough the generaf aooption of the sitting position among tbe civilized races many muncles have become stiff or obsolete. Persons who sit on the floor have strong ra-.-k and thiarh muscles. Turks, tutors acd shoemakers are ex amp es of this fact. If you hit on the floor you can change your attitude as often as you please, and can e j'y a:i endless variety of pose, and, however you may place pourself. there is never any chance of y.ur falling off. If you s-it ou the floor von can aonieve ail Kinas or comlort- ahle positions which it is impossible to obtain even with the easiest of east chairs. The influx of visitors need never cause anxiety to the weM consti tuted mind on th subject of chairs All he has to provide is a quantity of cushions cushions ot every size and shape. Let gues's select any they please, and it will be their cvn fault if they are not comfortable and happy It is, of course, only desirable to sit on a clean floor. Chicken Raising. Everv family which has onlv a few square yards of space ought to 'raise chickens. It is true that persons liv ing in cities on crowded lots cannot rtxoect to make even pin money from fowls, after buying feed, but having fresh eggs and clean, healthy chickens for tbe table ia profitable beyond the insignificant matter of dimes and dol lars. There is a satisfaction in eatirg home-raised rood, or unquestionable character, wnich is beyond the power of the huckster to eupr-lv. What though the eggs cos- five ct nt each, is there not a degree of personal sa isfac tion in nourishing ui- frail bodies with such high-priced f;rd that the beggar who gleans the garbage barrel or the patrons of cheap restaurants can never kno anything about? What nutter a cent or 'wo c-nts in tbe price of an egg, or ten or twenty cents in the price of tSat peerless breakfast dish, a smokinfir hot aud butter-soaked broiler, when we get the thing we want and tbat our aesthetic appetite oraves.-' People who dwell in marble halls are supposed to choose their food without haggling about the cost, therefore their on bens should lay their ejrgs and hatch their taMe fowls. But those who have more srround, as in oftea the case at suburban residences, may sup ply their own tables with the luxuries n question absolutely free of cost, for a surplus can be p-oJuced tbat will easi ly pay the charges ou the entire crop, and with a little extra effort and care, a convenient profit can he made over and ahove an ample home supply. t,very farmpr should, bejoud all question, matte poultry a permanent feature of the farm, and should calcul ate upon a neat sum of money, or its eq livalent io trad-, from his poultry. He should never propose to himself a home supply merely, for of all people he is in a condition to make money from fowls, because be can grow them at less cost than others and never have to buy feed, acd the non-producinjr tbousar.d- look to him for their supply. Texas Farm and Kanch. Animal Drunkards. WllliamS. Walsh In I.ipplncott's. Most of tbe higher animals as monkeys, elephants, bears, horses a-d dogs have a natural fondness for fermented liquor?-, and suffer from the abur-e of these liquors as men do. From the book or Maccabees it is evident thai war eleuhajts wr?. mad dened of old with new wire, as they nave been ana are witu arra.cn down to love whisky equally well. In Africa ine natives matte use 01 cms evil trail to capture their poor relations. The monkeys there are extremely fond of a beer brewed by the natives. So the latter place quantities if the liquor within easy reach of the monkeys, and wait until their victims are thorough ly befuddled. In this state they are urable to recognize tho difference be tween negro ard ape. When the negro takes the band of one of them to lead him ff a second monkey takes the hand of the first, a third tbat of the second and so on. A single negro may sometimes be -een carrying off a string of stagpering monkeys. Fresh doses of beer in decreasing quantities are administered to the cau'.ives, so tba they may only gradually awaken to tbe sad results of their spree. A Natural Mud P.e Foundry. Uncie Sam hs a freak artesian well on the Brule Indian agency that is at tracting widespread attention. It threw a six-inch stream of water when it was first opened, and for sev eral rears thereafter, hut for about eight mon'.hs it has been engaged in making mud pies. Since that time ro endless chain of blue clay eix inches in diameter has been forctd up through tbe pip", rising slowly above thecal ing to a height of ten feet and then toppling over on the ground. The erurtion continues night and day. and tbe amount of clay to far forced up from 'he bowels of tie earth has made it neceenry for the Ttrnment to erop'oy a man 'o care for the premise-. Very little wat?r come up w ih the clay. A noticeable peculiarity of this well is that the c!uy ri-e mor rapidly previous to the advent of windy weatij er, resuming its steady, even grind agai' on the return of ple tsant wealh er.

Harper's Bazar. GUILTY. Hut OJen. Lee Pardoned the Deserter. From the Washington Post Duriuif tbe winter of 186."i-(i4 it was the fortune of Gen. Cullen A. Battle of Alabama to be president of the court martial of the army of Northern Vir ginia. One bleak Decern bar mornintr. while tbe snow covered the ground and wind h"vled around his camo, n; left Ms b vouie nr.- to attend ti e session of court at Round Oak church Case after case was disposed of, and at length toe case of tbe Confederate States vs. Edward Cooper was called; charere desertion. A low murmur rose spontaneously from the battle-sarreu spectators as the young artilleryman arose from the prisoners' bench and ia response to the question. "Gui'tw or no' guilty?" ans wered, "Not guil'y " Toe judge ad vocate was proceeding to open the pro secution when toe court, observing that the prisoner -was unattended by counsel, interposed and inquired of the accused, "Who-is your counsel?" Here plied: have no-counsel." Supposing that it was Cooper's pur pose to represent nimssit oeiore tne court, the judge advocate was instruct ed to proceed. Every charge and spe cification against the prisoner was sus tained. Tre prisoner was then told to introduce his witnesses. He replied: "I have no witnesses." Astonished at the calmless with which he seemed to be submitting to what be regarded as inevitible fate, Gen Battle said to him: "Have you no defense? Is it possible that you abandoned your com rades and deserted your colors in tbe presence of the enemy without any rea son.-"' He answered: "There wa a reason, bu. it will not avail me before a mili tary cou-t." Gbj Battle then said: "Perhaps you are mistaken. You are now charged with the highest crime known to military law, ana it is your duty to make known the causes that Influenced your actions. For the hrst time Cooper's manly form trembled and his blue eyes swam in tears. ApDroachiner the president of the court, be presented a letter, say ing as ha d a so: "There. General, is what did it. ' Gen. Battle opened tbe letter and in a moment his eyes filled with tears. ' It was pas-ed from one to another of the court until nil nad seen -it. and those stern warriors who had passed with Stone wall Jackson through a hundred battles wept like children. As soon as tbe president sufficiently recovered his self possession he read the letter as the defense of tbe prisoner. It was in these words. Dear Edward: I have always been proud of you; since your connection with the confederate army 1 have been pronder of you than ever before. I would nut have you do anything wrontr for th world; but, before God. Edward, u bless you come home we must die! Last night I was arous ed by little Eddie's crying: 'Oh, mamma, I'm so hungry!' And Lucy, Edward, your darling Lucy, she ever complains, but grows thinner ad thinner every day. And before God, Edward, unless you come home we must die. "Vour Mary." tho prisoner, General Turnins to Battle said: "What did you do when you received this letter. He replied: "I made application for a furlough. and it was rejected; again I made ap plication and it was rejected; a taird time 1 made appl'cation and it was re jected, and tbat night, as I wandered backward and forward in the camp. thinking of my home, tbe wild eyes of Lucy looking up to me, with the burc- ine words of Mary sinking in my brain, I was no longer tbe confederate soidier, but I was the father of Lucy and tne husband of Mary, and I would have pa-sed those lines if every gun in the battery had been fired upon me. 'When I arrived home Mary ran out to meet me, and embraced me and whispered: ' 'Oh, Edward, 1 am so happy. I am so glad you got y ur furlough.' She must have felt me shudder, for she turned pale as deata and, catching her breath at every word, she said: 'Have you come without your fur lough? O, Eiward, go back! Go back. Let mc aud the children go down tp the grave together, bat oh, for heaven s fake, 6ve the honor of your name:' "And here i am, gentlemen! not brought here by military power, but in obed ence to the command of Mary, and abide the sentence of your court!" Every orhcer of that courtmartial felt the force of the - prisoner's words. Before them stood, in beatific vision, the eloquent pleader for a busband and a father's wrong, but they had been trained by the ereat leader, Kobert E. Lee, to tread the patn ol duty though tne libtDing clash scorched tue ground beneath their feet, and each in bis turn pronounced the verdict, Guilty." Fortunately for humanity, fortunate ly for the confederacy, the proceed ings of the court were reviewed by tbe commanding general, and upon the re cord was written: ' Headquarters A. N. V.

I Is This the R-ason Why (ueeii Wil- Iielmiua Hesitates at the Idea I of Hcti'otha!? i A recent editorial writer in "Tbe . Lady's Pictorial hazards the ! opinion thai the evident ! disinclination of the young queen j of Holland to entertain the idea ot oetrotnai may possibly be due to a peculiar feature of the Du'ch constitu tion, according to which if she should marry and have a son, and he should live to be thirteen years old, she would have to cede the throne to him. "Not many women," says the writ-r, "would contemplate with much satis faction the possibility of reiening for some twenty years or so and then be ing compelled to retire to the compa ratively obscure posit'on of queen dow ager while still upon the sunny side of forty. The Salic law is only par i ally abrogated in the Netherlands, and the result is not only rather anomal ous, but might conceivably lead to dis satisfaction among the people accus tomed, it might be, to the beneficent 6 way of an amiable and popu'ar queen, and then suddenly fin 1 themselves rul ed by a young king, who uu. at tha1 age, be almost wholly governed by powers behind tbe throne, anl yet might possess a sufficiency of self-will to prove 'difficult.' Altogether, th Dutch system does not appear ideal.' Exchange. Coffee-Pots, Loving'-Cupe, and Baby Scales. There have been many improvements recently in houehold furn'ture and kitchen utensils. The old-fashioned ohair-s'ep was a convenient piece of furni'ure had it not pos-ssed the per verse inclination that seems to exist in all euth contrivances which are made "a double debt to pay." At exactly that moment when it was re quired for use as steps it seem to insist on remaining a chair Tbe li brary steps, which are usually seen as a shallow table set against tbe wall, were no. more to be depended upon. A careless footing on the last step was sure to reve se the spring, and might give the person who bad mounted them a bad fall. All these contrivances are now made with a spring lock, so that they cannot change their position when they are once fixed in it. All hous holn, stnpladders are dangerous traps if they are not furnished with secure locks. Kjoe or tne greatest changes or re cent date is in imported porcelain and stoneware coffee-pots. Almost everyone is familiar with tbe awkward shape of tbe old coffee b'gein, or deep coffee-pot, with its pretentious seooni story. It was generally made of metal. and often of tin. Every intelligect housekeeper now knows that c.ff e, as well as tea, should be made n no baser metal than silver, and is far better made in porcelain, or a pot of sweet, nure-stoneware, than in any metal. The coffee biggin was finally introduc ed in stoneware a lew years ago, and in the picturesque blue and white "onion" pattern, which Germans use so much in their kitchens. It was also in a pret y, plain coffee-brown French ware. These coffee-pots were so com plicated, however, that they were ex pensive, and some of tbe various parts were liable to be broken. The new b'ggins of fluted French ware are also exceedingly pret y. They come in porcelain in a dinty olive French brown, in blue and white, and white and gold. The feature of these big gins is that the "dip," also of porce lain, is concealed, b neath tbe cover, making a simple, tall coffee-pot when the dip inside is removed. Such a coffee-pot holds more than the old- fashioned second-story biggin, and has fewer parts, and therefore it is much more desirable. A baby scale is a gift that would touch the heart of the young mother who should be brave enough to risk superstition aid have ber baby weighed. Perhaps the propitious co lors of white and cold with wnich the pretty little basket and dial scale on which it is mounted are decorated will break the spell and bring only happy omens to tie baby that is weighed in it. New York Tribune. Two Cents a .Mile. From the St. Louis Ulobe Democrat. The New Yorit, Outario and West a mile, ern has reduced all fat e io 2c thus exempting ltseit from the requir meats oi tne niiiea;e oook law. At tne same time tne company has with drawn al round-trip, 25-riae and other reuueed rate tickets, ihus making a slight -advance on some tickets to partially offset the loss (of 1 cent a mile) on those lor single trips. This must produce a material reduction in the road's revenue, but there can be little doubt that tne traffic will in crease enough to restore the gross pas senger earnings within two or three years, fossioie it may sum ciently in crease within o..e jer, tuouga the long stretches of raiher sparsely se. tled country through which the road ruiis are somewuat discouraging. Ticket sales to large towns within a half-hour's ride are the kind most easily increased by a reduction of the price. Just how much the Outa rio gross earniags will suffer it is bard to tell, tjr tbe publi:?hed reports do not separate the earnings of 3c tickets from those on other rates. The average receipts per pus-eoger mile ;ast year were only 2.0c. As ihe through travel, both hrst-ciass and emigrant, brought in only $75,270, as compared with $503,390 Irom loca., ihe emigrant passengers can not havo had a great influence on the average, and difference between tbe locil rule (3c) and th- average tjtal receipts (2.07c) must have been caused largely ov round-trip sales and summer excur sions to'picjus and the like.
