MAKE SOUP Eropor and Inexpensive Mothod Admired Dliorder GlrU Who Don't Un derstand Housework Bncnmfortablo Wadding RlnRt 1'nreali and Children The lllglit Way to Shop MIJ l'en ny' Work, Boup of tlie very best Is very clirap, If lt(be properly made. If it be not properly ulido it 1 more expensive nnd not ns good. His be?t nuiteriul, by nil odds, in beef. The uest bast Is veal, but when veal is nscd It is wine to use beef aUo. liecf, to be sunt, Is the most expensive of the staple msnts, but thu best piece of which to make soup Is the cheapest cut in the carcass. H Is tho "sticking piece," which in high tip on the neck. It Is so culled becaiisi; the unimal is bled from Sucre when slaughtered. As the enri-nn U hung head down, the valniiblo juices which you need In soup settle there. Use alfo thu bones which tho butcher removes Eroni your roasting piece. ISone is good, not so much for the marrow, though that U booJj lis for the fibrin that it yields. Iu uddltion to this material use chicken bones or turkey bones if a roast fowl has been carved. If a fowl has bceu boiled, use the water in which it has been cooked, l'hcso muterinls blend. Do not put mut ton In with beef, neither any ham bones or other pork. As to cooking, don't boll. The hasty, nd therefore poor, cook will boil meat for Boup. Put your meat nnd bones into a stouo pot or an agate warn vessel of borne kind, cover with water and simmerull day. It won't hurt to bimuier it longer, but at least ton hours is necessary. The pot should be closely covered, so that no flavor ar strength shall be lost by evaporation. Nothing whatever should be put iu the pot, pxceptiug what has been meutiouwl, until within two hours of the time when rhe soup, or rather the btock, is to be eon sidered done. At that time take all the vegetables that are to no into the boup for tlavoring aud tie them up in a bunch. Throw them In and let them cook for the wo hours. Then remove them. They are neit to worthless, though our teach'trs, the l-'ieuch, would serve them, with plenty of eivsouing, as vegetables. If they are left o cook iu the mjuu longer than about two heirs they will injure the flavor of the "i. and two hours is Ions enough to get u i he good out of them. As to the se!.oning, a word is necessary. If meat is salted when it is tlrst put on to Mmmer it will harden aud refuse to yield its juices. Wait until the soup is ueurly clone aud then season to taste. After the cooking lb completed remove the pot fiom the lire aud swain the soup caret. illy. Set it in a cool place i.i a stone pot aud let it cool thoroughly before put ting it Into the icebox. If it is put on the le o cool quickly it will not keep so well. ii( n it is thoroughly cool set it on the ice n& you will fpeedlly iind that you have a rifli meat jolly. This jelly is concentrated soui). it is the very best of all meat soups, and enters into the combination of nearly every one of tlie hundreds of soups that may m made. It may almost bo said that no good soup can be made t.ithout this jelly, or "stock," ior its foundation. That would be au ex aggeration, of course, for excellent soup luf.y be made of many things. Good stock, hov, ever, prepared iu this way Is an addi tion of great excellence to any soup. Di luted simply with hot water it main s the consomme, and with additions becomes any soup you want. New York Adver tiser. Admired Disorder. What quality or what want of quality is it thut makes it impossible for certain peo ple to maintain an appearance of tidiness in the rooms whore they live, and whilo in some houses everything looks as if it grew in its place and could not bo uprooted, iu their houses everything looksasif tumbled into loufusiuu und were ouly waiting tor u whirlwind to give it another turn? The coveis ure half oil' aud half on the furniture; the books are open, face down, perhaps, on the table, perhaps on tho sofas, perhaps on the floor, the ftowers are faded in the glasses where the water has never been renewed; the lamp shade is . ,y; the rug is tosM.-d up at the corner; tue photographs are fallen pelluiell; tho cushions uru scattered; the chairs soem to have been arrested in a waltz; a piece of fancy work is left where it happened to be dropped; hassocks are anywhere where they can trip up the uu wary; even the pictures on the wall are out of line, and there is not a straight patli tj be followed anywhere iu the room. Tlie bees and the ants put this house mistress to shame, and so do thu birds, who make their nesta iu old trees indistinguishable with liahenrt. If she tried to mako order out of the chaos Bhe would only achieve another turn of disorder. Yet after all It Is to be questioned if there is not oj much comfort in the midst of all this amazing disorder as in a lioiue of prim und methodical geometrical rule where a crumb Is a crime, where nothing U out of place, aud if you take a book you feel you mutt replace it to within a hair's breadth of wbeva it was before, and the neatness is such us to put the iudwuller in bonds. A golden mean U desirable in all things someth inc that Is neither too pre cise nor too disorderly. Yet there bceuib to be an easygoing element of sweet tem per in the disorder that promises, on the whole, mors happiness than may belong where everything Is done by lino and meas ure, with a sort of crabbed and acrid acid ity of flavor In tho very air you breathe .Harpers uazur.

There are, however, household duties which cannot bo left to tho care of help. Brooklyn Eagle. Uncoiuforlabto Wedding Itlng. The Hayanzi, who live along tho upper Congo, have a strange custom which makes life a burden to thu married women. Hras rods are welded into great rings around the necks of tho wives. Many of these rings vorn by tho women whose husbands are well to do neigh as niuuh as thirty pounds, and this burden inusC be canied by the poor creatures as long as they live. Frequently one sees a poor woman whoo neck is galled by tlie heavy weight, and In places the skin is rubbed off by tho ring. Tills Is u sure sign that tho ring has been recently welded around the neck. After a short time the skin becomes calloused and then tho strange ornament produces no abrasion. The uvight is a perpetual tax upon the energies. In every crowd of wom en may be seen a number who uru support ing the ring with their hands, aud thus for a time are relieving their weary shoulders of the burden. A ring is never put around n woman's neck until she is believed to have attained her full physical development. Onco on it is no easy matter to get it off. The natives have no files, anil although they can ham mer a lot of brass rods Into one, it is very difficult for them to cut thu thick mass of metal. 'Women who increase largely in flesh after the rings have been fastened on their necks are in danger of strangling to death, and instances of this sort have oo curred. Tlie women, however, regard tho cumbrous ornament witli pride, imagine that it enhances their importance nnd beauty, and uiir their burdens witli light heaits. Brass is the money of the country. and in putting it mound their wives' necks the men are etitaiu that it will not be stolen or foolishly expended. Boston Courier. I'nrrnts anil Children. Parents talk t'io much to their children, a physician am horitativcly asserts, partic ularly tho-'e parents who givu most an X' ious thought to bringing up their children, 'I he talk of children Is a natural escape valve; talk to rl.i'ilren is an undue stimu lus. If parents were what they should be, their yea and uny would Ihi sufficient. It is better, says the physician, to turn i child's mind to something childish am huperfieial when it wishes to do or to know things not suited to its age or capacity than to satisfy, argue or explain.

If women could but realize- it, they double their labor and add wearim ss to their own flesh, and tliatof all wi'.h whom they come in contact, by the h.tpba; rd way in which they shop. It is just as easy to start o! niter something you really want as to go fooling around and trjiug to make up your mind when you uru iu the midst of the crowd in tlie shops. "An eyesight" your need is a very important adjunct in . shopping campaign, and thu successful buyer usually possesses it.

Shu docsn stop to look at tilings she doesn't want; not a bit of it. She attends btrictly to business und gets through with it, while tlie fussy woman who doesn't know what the wants is pulling over towels on the counter. She is a delight to the salesman or saleswoman, and she guts served with respect and dispatch. New York I'rcss, Miss l'enny's Work.

Whenever I see a young man who is nt- tentivu to his own bister, taking her to theaters, escorting her to and from parties and tlie like, I feel like congratulating both of them. Such n picturu is always beautiful, such an example is worthy of imitation. When I seo a young man who is not attentive to ids own sister, who is perpetually bestowing his favors on some other fellow's sister, 1 do uotcondemn him, and I make no inUine.s as to tho whys mil wherefores. Thu matter is outsido of my hniliwicK. 1'erliaps his bister nas plenty of other company which she prefers to his, possibly he prefers another girl's boiii ty to that of his sister, aud iu a great many instances each condition contributes to the situation. On the other hand, it sometimes happens that Incompatibility of t-mpcr is tlie child catii-c, anil that, loo, without rellecling witli lalal seriousness on cither party. The fact is, th'.'iu is too much of this promis cuous scolding of joung men for neglect ing their sisters. Detroit 1'ieu Picas. One Woman's Way.

"What shall we do about It?" you Bay. "Shall we turn our houses into monaster ies and shut our children up iu cells?" Madam, your question is foolish and you do not even desiie to give yourself to true child culture. You are, 1 suspect, trying to excuso your selfishness by asking uon sensical questions. I have been children brought up with tenderest sympathy ami fully guarded against corruption; nnd yet you would never have thought of calling thoso homes prisons, jails, or monasteries or nunneries. The only difference be tween them and other homes was that there the first inlluence and effort was to train and educate and save thu children. It was not thu second or third purpose, but the first purpose. To that everything else bent. The result was most lovely and lov able characters and happy homes and sat isfied parental:. lNfeTiuxTioN most motiii:i:. I was recently in a house of a different sort a home in which both parents truly longed for noble children; but the lather cared for busimss first and children second, and tlie mother attended to a half doz.eu hospitals and homes first and children sec ond. The result was two children out of six have come oil urn-oiled, and two are very badly beared, and two are physically enfeebled by premature and falsu knowl edge picked up loosely. Half uf their edit cation was away from parental control. Ivxeollt'Ut people every way, except home was not first iu ininJ. "What soit of policccraft do yon sug gest?" None at all for you, niv deal worn an; you have evidently made up your mind ton whole catalogue of lies, and argument would bu lost ou you. You would quote to me, "Hut thu child must seu thu world, must 1 o not ?" And as soon as 1 had an swered that there is every reason why l.e thou til not see si me p.iit of thu world, yo.i would be'in again with, "Well, every child must sow liis wild oats." Then I should say to jou that he must aUo reap what lie tows. Hut you would tell me at onco that if I shut up my children they will bteak away as soon as possible, and go to the bad as soon as i i-ibk-, a'nl 1 should an swer that I do tn.i uiu-nd to act a-- jailer but as mother, ami that the question be twecn us was one of extent of love and guardianship, for you also believe iu a cer tain degree and kind of discipline, Then you would say, "But how shall a child ever know how to go into society kent awkwardly shy w lien young?1' And 1 would say. "That is notisi i.se, for no child ncid be kept shy or made awkward in fine home, with noble tiands and enough to do and think about; and as for profc sioual society, it that is what you mean Cod save my boys aud g.rls from evei feel ing a taste for such a sickly iiu." Nor would you be satisfied yet, but would say nut l cannot put up bars between niv children and my neighbor!.."

Then you may very justly say, "Hut nm I to cousider my childieu better than other folks' children, and will they tolerate my conce't?"

It is this as sumption unit somehow your childicn are something wonderful that makes the mis chief, if instead you frankly sav thev nre not remarkable otilv wak nnd liable to lie spoiled, which you i'o not intend permit then you will see that your neigh bors will not Icel so bad about it."

It would be wrong to cluduthem." 1 reply: "That is so exaetly Now do you see that they do have society nod enough of tlie very be-a; only that is not natural society which is out of your sight, or is aitiflcial in dress and fashion.'' Hut no need of further discussion. You nnd I are determined not to agree. You do not mean to mljpt sai.u.uds enough to make sum of your children, I do. Hut witli some mcilirrs 1 can agree, and our chief puzzle is first how to goto work to nucomplish what we desire. For when we look about thu woeful fact stare" us in the faco that nearly all the children are tor rupted before school life Is over. If wc want sweet souls und clean minds how bhall we get them? bOMK things to on3i i;vi: kkiipi.t On no account tail to study your boys and girls and see what one bppfial thing they delight in; then let each one. from the first manifestation of a bias, have that to do. If tlie child is naturally an artist Is. sure he is furnished with art material and n studio. If lie bo a mechanic let him have tools and u shop. Don't dare to think you can afford a sealskin sacquu and canuot nfford all the tools lie can use. If you have a book lover let him fullow his bent with ouly rational restraint. He suieon uoai count to allow your child to bleep with his friends at their homes or to have companions to spend the night with him. liven ihij association may be almost Wholly in or near your presence, if you will take the trouble to overlook such complin ionsliip generally. Take special pains to train tlie oldest child to companionship and accustom him or her to a watchful co-operatiou in guard ing with you thu younger ones.
