Jenks, in the Charities Iteview: " We need to learn new ways of making common things palatable. There are many com binations, or rather disguises, to be lcarned, that transform cooking from comtnonplace drudgery into the learn ing and discovery of something new each day. Mott people, and justly, too, dislike the old-fashioned bread pudding, but if you transform it into a ' queeu of puddings ' by using ten minuteB in making the white of egg into a mer inguc, and adding a spoonful of jelly, you have accompliBbed the economical purpose of the bread pudding, and giveu inlinitely more satisfaction to the palate. In tho same way a half-cupful of salmon or a cuprul of canned toma toes made into soup, with the addition of a quart and a balf of milk and crack ers makes a very good fifieen-cent fup per or brcakfast for four people, while these same insrrcdients uncombined would be only a very unsatisfactory part of a meal. A crust of bread grateti, au egg aud a tough piece of steak can be made into very palatable croquettes, the chopping-knire accomplishing what the teeth could not. No one cook-book or person has a niotiopoly of the ways of making every-day foods palatable, and giving tliem variety. Time, pa tience and thought will dnd Ihem if one earnestly setB to work to accomplish something in accordance with these plans." For the Bed-room. A clean bureau eover and pincushion add very much to the beauty and fresh nefs of a bed-room. Thc-y are made of dotted muslin that can be easily laun dered. !Make the pincushion of amplo size aud edge with two ruflles, a small one at the seam and a wider one at the bottom; a narrow lace makes a pretty fiuish to the ruflles, and the bureau cover can be trimmcd in the same way. Of course this arraugemeut is perfectly limple, but when the muslin is starched and c'ean. the ruflles crisplv fluted, and the whole made over colored silk or si lesia, it is very fresh and pretty, and moreover, will last for years. Dotted muslin. made the size of the window frame, are the best curtains for summer bed-rooms, as they are so easily kept clean and are very dainty as well when tied back with pretty ribbons. gtoral anli JUligtaus. To Get Ridof Ants. A writer in an excbange says: " Hav ing had years of torment with ants both black and red, we lighted upon the following remedy, which with us has worked like magic. One spoonful tar tar emetic, one spoonful of sugar, mixed into a thin syrup; as it evapo rates or is carried off, add ingrediuuts as needed. A sicker lot of pests would be hard to flnd. Whether they impart the results tothe home firm or whether all are killed, I trow not; certain it is they do not pay us a second visit. For ants on the lawn, a Bpoouful of paris green cut with alcohol and made into a syrup with sugar and water can be placed on pieces of glass or crockery cover from domestic pets aud the slaughter will be satiBfactory." Egg aud Milk. Take a fresh egg, break it in a sauccr, and with a thrce-pronged foik beat it until it is as thick as batter. Have ready half a pint of new milk sweet ened with white sugar, stir the egg into the milk, and serve it with a piece of sponge cake or slice of toast. It is con Bidered very light. nourishiug food for an invalid. Sotne prtfiT the yolk and white of the egg beaten separately. The yolk should be beaton till it is very light and thick. then pour it into the sweetened milk; afterwards beat the whitefl till it will stand alone. and add gradually half a teaspoonful of white sugar; pile the white on the top of thc milk and serve as before. BEMXXBXB the German proverb: " Speech is silvcrn, but silence ie golden," and Hurns' more laconic " Aye keep something to yoursel' ye wouldna gie to ony." There is no greater fault in business dealings of all kinds than that of being over-commu-nicative. TlIHKE TlIINOS TO HKMEMnEU. Ilood's Sarsaparilla has thc most merit.

What change took place in the body of Je?u9 as he Bscended through the air we may not be able wholly to tell. That there wa9 changc we know, for llesh and blood eannot inhcritthe king dom of God. It assures us that tho putting off of this earthlv tabernacle does not affect the spirit. The real change from earth to heaven is shown in the asct nsion, Jesus talked with his friends up to the moment of parling. He was tho same in his love, his iuterest, his devotion, his thought, his words. ns he rose out of sight. They perceivnl no change. Had somo ptrong telescopo been in their hands they niight have pursued his ascent still further and proved that distance did not changc the character of the spirit. He was the same during the flrst moment out of sight as before; so the second and the thlrd; had he come again into sightjby the ecattering of the cloud, he would have been the same. He is still the same. Tho height of heaven doos not make one another person nor does the transit from earth to heaven. And that which was true of Christ is true of our friends and will be true of our felves. A liviug man with all his characteristicB passed into heaven in sight of mortals. There is then assurcd one living person in heaven who is as when he was on earth. The dieciples would have been tho same had they ascended in a body. The removal of our spirits from thc earthly to the heavenly body, from earth to heaven, will be as little shock as is here dis ccrned and with as little diminution of power or conscious life. We may all take sublime satisfaction for ourselves in the asccnsion as portraying the naturalness of the life in heaven and the fact that we pass the border line, wherever it is, without jar or friction or change in the quality of our inner being. Let us turu from tbe ascension like the earthly disciples and return to duty with great joy. Dr. 8, II. Virgin, in Xtw York Olwver. Fnmily Itoligion. The family is the corner-stone of so ciety tbe earliest organized form for propaguting the principles of church and state. These essential principles were taught in the early .Jewish fam ilies. The patriarchs were priests in their owu families. The respect shown each other and concessions made amoug children of the same household are les sons preparulory for future and more responsible life. Whatever seriously affects societv has its roots in the fam ily. As the fossil remaius of the earli est vegetative aud animal life have stayed with the rocks for centuries, bo for all time the teaching and ixample of the home circle remain with thc heart aud life. The development from lower to higher grades of phyBical and mcntal life, backed by the law of necessity. with reference only to this life is easy conipared to that religious caste which we are to give our children in the midst of many and mighty opposing influ ences. Heoce God ordered, "these words which I command thee this day shall be in thine heart, and thou shalt teach them diligently untothy children; thou shalt talk of them when thou sit test in thine house and when thou walk est by the way, when thou liest down and riseth up." Diligently, daily, they were to impress the truth upon the chil dren. To train a child in the way he should go is to flll the mind with truth; to direct the aspirations of the soul heavenward. This requires patient, piayerful care as the tender shrub or viue is trained into the desired shape. Mtrcy and truth, righteousness and peace, must commingle in family re ligion. The rod is not always to be spared. Love should predominate; kindneBs should be a reigning law. Di8obedience to parents is one of those grievous sins which f'ollow in blightiug curses through life the guilty soul. Exchanye. A Lie, and the Truth"! Fable. One day a Lie broke out of its in closure aud started to travel. And the man who owned the premises saw it after it had started, and was sorry he had not made the lnclosure Lie-tight. So he called to his swiftest Truth and said: " A Lie has got loose aud will do much mischief if it is not stopped. I waut you to go after it and bnng it back or kill it." So the swift Truth started out after tho Lio. But the Lie had one hour the start. At tho cnd of the tirst day the Lie was going Lickoty split. The Truth was a long way be hind it and was getting Tired. It has not yet caught up. And uever will. III Dcnoiiiiiiatioual Trude-mark. A very soedy individual, with hiB trousers worn thin behind and before, appeared one day in tho ofllce of the late Genoral C. B. Fiske and laid claira to his charity on tho ground that they were both Methodists. " O, yes," said the general, after looking at him for a momeut, " I aeo you are a Mothodist. You have the marks. You wore out your trouBors at tho knees praying and you wore them out behind backsliding." for Ple&sure is by no mcans so general as onc might cxpect. Many folks cat from habit, othcrs as a matter of duty, while thc poor dyspcptic sustains himself mostly on the con templation of what he can not eat at all. Thc hcalthftilncs ; of food is almost altogcther a mat ter of preparation.

"What was 1 dotng up there, you ask. Wliy, herding sheep, in order to get togetln r enongh for a gruh Rtake, so that 1 might start out again on a prosH;cting tour. "We had 10,000 sheep, divided into four bands, with three herders and as many dogs to caoh ono of them, and we campejl wherover night overtK)k us. 1 tell you I slept sounder in those days, rollel up in a pair of blankets and with a log of wood for my pillow, than I do now in tho best bed that I can flnd in a hotel. "We followed tho old stage roal that lod up from Htockton through Sonora and Cherokeo camp, and then struck out over a trail that led through tho 'Big Basin' and up to the headwaters of tho Tolumne river. It was in June and the air was full of the fragranco of flowers, while the sunlight as it flic k ered through tho trees inado a chess board on the velvet green carpet that lay stretched out beneath tho spreading oaks. "Wo had long before left civilization behind us, when lato ono evening we came out of tho woods into a little motmtain mesdow that was known as Crano's flats, and was the hi iuliiuarters for a band of cattle herders. Most of them were Italians, but they gave us a warm welcome. One of them in particu lur at!nu': my attention. Hewastall, lithe and muscnlar, and walked with tho easy swnng of a professional pedestrian. His eyea were of bluish gray, and he 6eemed to be a leader among his com panions, all of whom were swarthy and dark eyed. " 'If you can get that fellow to show you somo shooting you will see some thing wondorful in that line,' whispered one of my companions. " 'Who is he?' I asked. " 'Italian Jtx1,' was tho roply. "I had heard of Italian Joe lefore. At Sonora, at Cherokee, at the Confidenco mines aud in a hundred other places his fame as a ritle shot had beendinned into my oars. "The nezt morning I aiked liim to givo tis an exhibition of his skill. Shoot ing waa his weak point, and ho consent ed. Unlike the coy maiden, who can sing, but vi.-li t" lio coaxed before ehe does, ho had his notes with him. Tak ing a Colt's rwvolving riflo in his hands he paced off a hundred yards and pinned a common cap box to the trunk of a huge oak. Coming back, he wheeled as qnick as lightning, and without sight ing, apparently, he emptied tho cham bers. Six of the shots were in a circle around tlie edge, while the seventh was a plumb oenter. "Loivding again, he glanced about him. High up in the heavens a hawk circled warily through the blue, looking for something to prey upon. There waa a moment of hesitation, a quick report and down came the hawk with a bullet in his head. Peunies, dimes and quar ters that were tossod in the air came down with a bullet hole through them. Ho missed nothing that he drew a beatl on. He could beat all the Carvors and the Buffalo Bills that you ever saw." "What became of him?" asked an eager listener. "He shot at a man and he didn't miss him, either. Ho was captured by a band of vigilantes, and when I came out of the mountains in tho fall his skeletou, white and ghastly, was hanging to a tree at the eutranco of the big basin. Tho vultures had ptoked all tho flesh from the bones, and the sun, wind and rain had bleachel them to a snowy whiteness. Pinned to a tree was this inscription, written with charcoal upon a pint ehingle: : nE oovui siioot too inu. : : ami we ttvwa am, : "Rather a ghastly comment on our so called civilization, was it not?" Chi ccvjo Tribnne. The Cnrnet Iiithistry. A remarkable growth has taken placc in the carpet industry in thia country during the last thirtv years. In 1800 tlie hand loom wnsin itsprime through out Kensington, where the power loora was looked upon more as an experi mental curloafty than a practioal aid to labor. Usually the employer worked llde by sido with his weaver, who earned good wages, and was as much respected amoni; his noighbors as a high-class merchant now is. Skillcd Eniilishmen, Scotchmen and IriBhmen all found ready eniploynient and a prompt return for their labor. The total uumber of factories in the United States was 213, but the product only amounted to about 13,000,000 yards.valued atnearly 88,000, 000, an increase of 2,.r.00l000 over the output iu 1850. In 1870 the uumber of factories was only increased by three, but the amount of the product swelled to 32,000,000 yards, valued at about 22,000,000, with au invested capital of 13,000j000. Wages on hand looma be ean to decrtase, owing to the competi tion of the power looms. In 1882 the cnpital invested in the induBtry was up ward of 82o,000,000, involving 340 es tahlichmeuts (including raany small concerns, not factories, strictly ptik--inL'), in which there were over 5,000 hand looms, 4,200 power looms and 22,000 operatives. The total output was 02,000,000 yards, valued at $50,500,000. Ol this, over 27,000,000 yards were in gruin (one-half of which was the chl ap cotton grade), 14,HOO,OfK) tapestry and 8 500,000 body Brussels and Wilton. The estimated increase in the numln r of factories from 1880 to 180 was over eighty per cent; in capital, twenty per cect, and in the numbcr of emplojes, cight per cent, thc latter mair.lv an in crease in the nuiwber of lemales em ployed, rendored possible by the intro duction of the power loom. Wages had Increased twenty per cent. In 1890 a considerable change was found. Hand looms had practically disappeared, and thc factories, though numbcring only about 150, had been grcatly enlarged, and ran in tbe aggrcgate something over 8,000 power looms. The total out put in that year wns about 85,000,000 yards f excluding moquetteK), valued at over 164X00,000, which, with the .),000, 000 worth of moquettel, made only in New York and Massachusetts, brought the grand total to !?.V7,000,000. Of the 85,000,000 yards, 17,000,000 were in grain, 20100,000 tapestry (Brussels and velvet), and 17,000.000 body Brussels and Wilton, I'hiladelphiaproduces over half of this, 40,000.000 yards, valued at ?20,000,000; New York, 1!) 000,000, val ued at $13,500,000, and Massachusetts, 13,500.000, valued at $10,000,000. The cheapeuing of the product aud the con sequent iucrease in the per capita con sumption, which is tenfold greater than in 1800, is the direct result of improve ments in machinery. Fine tapestries and Brussels can now be obtaiued at the former cost of the rudest ingrain. Thc enormous product, 85,000,000 yards, is consumed entirely at home, making a per capita consumption of nearly a yard and a half far more than in any loreign country. Whftt'l in a Nnme? " I am sorely anuoyed and harrasse.l by a name," said a dapper little man with keen gray eyes and a flerce mous tache. " I hear a name that for cen turies has been borne with pride, and that to my positive knowledge has never been dishonored. It is an hon orable name and is associated with many of man's greatest achievements. And yet in these degenerate days of the comic song writers and his arch con spirator, the wandering minstrel, my name is weighing down my ambitions and my hopts of prosperity and poster ity. My name is McGinty Michael J. McGinty but not one man in (ifty to whom I am iutroduced believes either my introductr or myself when, with the most dignified solemnity, we aspure him that that is my real cogno meu. I have surrendered all hope of ever utilizing the use of the tele pbone, for as soon as the man at the other end of the line asks who it is that has rung him up and I tell him Mc Ginty, he rails at me for disturbing him with my jokesand snappishly rings me off. I never attempt to introduce my-s-elf to any one as other meu do, for I would only be considered an im potor who was trying to disguise his identity for some sinister motives, or an lcdividnal entirely too fresh. About the queerest experience that my name has occasioued me occurred last summer on one of those magnificent steambouts that ply the Hudson. I joined a party of friends for an excur sion up the river. In the party was one of the most beautiful young women I ever saw. I at once sought an intro duction to her, and imngtne my heart burns and chagrin when I was intro duced to Miss Itooney. I tried to re lieve the embarrassment we both felt by making some peculiar remark about the singular coincidence, but Miss Hooney wouldu't have it. Her great, liquid eyes tilled with lears, and she tumed her back on me. All this may 8eem funny to you and other people, but I tell you the thing has gone so far that there ib no fun in it to me." St. Louis Globe-Denwcrat. Marie ever Forgot Agaiu. A German merchant in London has a servant girl who is excellent in many reBpects, but was very forgetful. This fault was especially annoying at meal tirues, when something essential was sure to be lucking from the table. One day the family was seated at the table aud the bell was rung as usual. The girl hurried to the dining-room. " Marie," said Ilerr B., " ju9t run and fetch tbe big step ladder down from the attic and bring it up here." Marie, who had been disturbed at her dinner, gave a grunt of difsatisfaction, but ran up three tlights of stairs to fetch down the heavy ladder. In about flve minutes she returued to the room, panting with hcr exertion. " So now," said Herr B.. "put it up at that end of the room and climb to the top."
