Trans fer to a granite kettle or stone Jar set tn a largo pan two-thirds full of tepid water. Heat slowly, mushing meanwhile with a wooden pastlo. As soon as pulpy, which will bo In a few momenta, pour Into tho Jelly bag, preferably flannel and uspend overla bowl or carthern Jar to drip over night. Do not squeeze, or the Jelly will bo cloudy. In the morning, measure the Julco and allow to each pint of Julco a Jound of sugar. Turn the su gar on plates and set In the oven to heat through, stirring often to prevent Its turning yellow. When the Julr0 lias boiled Just 20 minutes from the time It commenced to boll being well skimmed In the meantime pour In the sugar and stir until it Is dissolved no longer. Boll from two to three minutes, test ley pour ing a few drops In a cup and exposing to tho air to see If It begins to thicken, then pour at onee Into glasses which havn been rolled In hot water. To pre vent cracking, keep the glasses while being filled on a hot damp cloth. Fill to the b'lm as the Jelly shrinks In tool ing. When white currants are used for the Jelly, less sugar will ho required, three-quarters of a pound of sugar sufficing for a pint of Julco, BAR LK DUC. To mako this from currants, use the largo cherry currants, removing nil tho seeds, with ' a darning needio or quill, from the stem end. While this takes a long time, the work need not bo Irksomo If done out of doors, on tho porch or un der tho trees. Weigh out the seeded cur rants and to every throe pounds allow one cupful of water and four and one half pounds of granulated sugar.

It wns dltce vercd Thursday morning that Fred Mulr, n prisoner In the Chit tenden county Jail, had escaped some, time during tho previous night. The escape of tho prisoner Is not a credit to tho manner of construction of tho new Jail. Mulr wrenched one of the Iron brackets from his bunk In the base ment and first nttempted to wrench the iron screen from his cell window. Ho abandoned this effort but succeeded with tho bracket In prying tho cell door open. Ordinarily he would have met wtth difficulty there after but the Jail bus settled to such nn extent that It Is Imposslblu to lock tho bis'oment door so the prisoner- opened It and was free. Mulr was alone and con sequently his efforts were unheard. Mulr has a bad record. Ho wns serv ing a term of 7S days for stealing a bl cyclo and was held also on a charge of grand larceny for stealing another. On his way between the court room and Jail, loll.iv.-lng his hearing, Mulr escaped from tho officer In charge but was recaptured before- ho had mr.Je much progress to ward liberty.

Without moaning to detract In any way froi.i the; greatness of Wilbur and Or vllle Wright, the alrs..tp men. It cm 1k claimed that but for a woman they would to-day pinbably be repairing bicycle or nutomobllo for a living, unknown and uncung. That woman Is tharir sister, Miss Catherine Wright, who hnn recent ly returned home with them after en joying tho favor of klu;s, presidents, and prlno-s on the continent. There Is nt prettier story than tho devotion of the members of tho Wright family eich to the other. Thorn wero five children four boys and a girl. One of tho boys left home early and now re sides In Kan.tas. Another became a bookkeeper, married, and had a family of his own to look after. The sister fitted herself for teaching nnd secureq a plnce In the public schools of payton, Ohio. Wilbur nnd Orville remained at home with their parents and this sister. About tho time tho two brothers got through school, tho bicycle craze was at Itn height nnd they engaged In bicycle repairing as a buHness. It 'van while conducting this business that thv began working upon a machine which developed Into the flying machine. Their original Idea wns to make a toy, a sort of aeriul toboggajr upon which n, fellow could hnva fun. They con structed a plane of that kind and found that so long as It moved forward It would support them. Thon the Idea of attaching a motor to It end driving It forward ontered their minds. It was at this critical period In their careers thnt tho aid of tho sister was Bought. She hod taken an Interest In the gll'llng machine, but when they be gan talking about flying machines, she grow enthusiastic. Right nway Wilbur nnd Orvlllo Wright, with the aid of their ftlnter, took up tho serious study of aeronautics. They read everything printed upon the subject, the sister or dering the books for them as they learned of the volumes thnt had appeared. But they did not believe everything they re.4 In the bonks, nnd that wns their salva tion, In n sense. Miss Wright mude the calculation and her brothers made the experiments. Tho threo worked together. Before any dem onstration was mnde, beforo her broth ers had tested the machine they wero building, Mlas Wright knew that It wns in slble for man to, fly. She wns the first woman In tho world to know It positively. She know It because she herself hml made the calculations. She was willing to etnke what little money she hod saved from her salary as n school teiu-her, along with tho smaller amount her brothers hud saved, upon tho outcome of the det leo to be made ac cording tn her calculations, She staked It, and nho won. When the machine was completed nnd found tn be n success, nnd It became desirable to get In touch with the nations of the world, It was Cntherlno Wright who brought the aeroplane to the at tention of tho men who would have to be dealt with. The letters which the representatives of foreign governments received were written by this woman tn the name of her brothers. All this time Miss Wright wns going 'daily to the schoolroom. Even their neighbors did not know she took nny Interest In the flying mnrhlno. They knew thnt It wns characteristic of tho Wrights to be devoted to one another. But they did not know thnt this patient school teacher had mastered the Intric acies of the air and thnt she bad been In eorrespondonee with governments, carrying on the promotion end of tho Hy ing machine. Even nfter the Wright aeroplane hnd become famous nnd her brothers were Idennnnstrntlng It to tho world, Miss Wright continued her occupation of teaching. It was not until Orvllle Wright met with tho accident nt Fort Meyer, which came near costing him Ml life, thnt sho gave up her position nnd hastened to him. Sho remained until he was able to travel, took him homo, nursed him to health, and accompanied him on his recent trip to Franco, Miss Wright has always been modest n.nd retiring. Tn the school-room sho was popular, despite the fnct she was exacting. And she Is one. woman who has proved thnt she reiuld keep a secret. STRANGE NEW I'OfllW FROM ASIA. Two now vrgetnblc" for the kitchen garden, a giant radish and a cabbage from Brobdlgnng, have recently been In troduced Into this countty by our agri cultural explorers. They are remarknble not only fort size, but for excellence of flavor, nnd will be heartily welcomed as palatable additions to tho American blll-of-fnre. Tho rnd'nh In question comes from Japan, whero It Is knerwn as "sakura Jlma." It attains a length of two feet or more, nnd sometimes a circumference equal to that of a man's thigh. Al though tho seeel Is not planted until the rnlddlo of the summer, the vegetable grows with wonderful rapidity, and early In nutumn Is ready for the table. The government plant bureau recom mends this vegetable In tho highest term". It ought before long to bo In every kitchen garden; and there Is no reason whv It should not bo widely planted, Inasmuch as the seeds aro al ready to be obtained front some seeds men. Tho huge radish will keep nil win ter In a cool cellar. It may be cooked like turnips and beets, or cut Into llttlo square or strips, nnd served like ordin ary radishes. As for the glint cabbage, It comes from China, and Is ejulte as remarkable In Its way as the radish. It attains a weight of 40 pound", nnd possesses so fine a flavor thnt cabbwges of tho kinds to which we are terustomed must be re garded as poor things, relatively speak ing. This remarkable vegetable from the Flowery Land has a much more dellcato taste than ordinary cabbago, with lesj of the crude "cabbagy" Intensity, which many folks find objectionable.

A triumph for British englneeHng Is tho great Nile dam, which has Just be.jn opened by tho kliedlve. It has baen erected by Sir John Alrd, who, from small beginnings, has built up nno of the largest and most successful con tracting concerns In the world. For about six years Sir John has had 11,000 men working for him on the banks of the Nile, and th huge reservoir which he has built holding S0,i?,0i'0,0i gallons of water, weighing nearly O.Cco.fio tuns stands as one of tho engineering mar vels of the age.

(From the Quehec Chronicle.) It Is with the greatest regret, a regret which will be fully shared In by the citi zens of Quehec that no learn that tho popular consul of the United Stntes In this city has sent In his resignation tn Washington, which has been ne-ceptrd, nnd his long serlce here will be termi nated by the arrival of his succes"or, Mr. Gebhard Wlllrlch about the first of August next. The general took up his official duties hero In September, 1W, and his 32 years' service hns been mark ed by singular ability and energy, nnd by a tact and courtesy which hns won golden opinions from all with whom ho came Into ofllclr.1 contact. In his private oapnrlty ho has attracted tho esteem and cordial good will of all who have had the pleasure of his ncqualntnnce. Genial and unassumlnsr, and of great kindliness of disposition, he has entered heartily Into our private life, and had become one of ourselves. Tho government of tho United States will lost a vnluahlo ser vant here, though we aro hnppy to learn that It will still command his services tn another wphere In Washington, nnd the citizens of Quebec will mourn for tho loss of n good friend whoso sterling worth they have long lenmed to appre ciate highly.

A Comfortable Outfit Can lie Procnred nt n Slight Cost. Adlvce In regard to a camping outfit can only be relative; tho conditions under which the trip Ib to be madu must gov ern tho size of the outfit, method of transportation and cost. Tho first essential Is a waterproof tent, preferably with tho floor sewed on, which adds materially to tho comfort, and only a llttlo to tho price. A good waterproof wall tent, seven and one quarter by seven and one-quarter feet, can be bought for ten dollars. A Frazor tent seven feet tn diameter costs six dollars; a special canoo tent with one pole, eleven dollars; a waterproof silk wall tent twenty-one dolors. A bed that when folded Is three feet long and five Inches square cost. only two dollars and fifty cents nnd weighs sixteen pounds. If a long stop Is to bo made!, bed ticks may be ran led and fill ed with hay or straw or spruco tips. Sleeplng-bvgs nre very convenient, but they nre expensive, ranging In price from nine dollars and twenty-flvo cents to thirty-two dollars. A good army blank et costing three dollars and fifty cents may be doubled, steel eyelets fastened eilong the bottom and ono side, ond laced together with heavv cord. This will afford ample protection, except In the coldest weather. A ieddlng table Is a great convenience, and costs two dollars and twenty-tlve cents. A chair that weighs five pounds nnd measures only three nnd one-half by three foet when closed sells for two dollars. It Is a comfortable lounging chair with a soft, high back. A smaller camp chair that folds very compactly, but has no back. Is fifty cents. Orwi with a back costs seventy-five cents. The camp stove should be carefully chosen, the nature of the trip nnd Its facilities for obtaining fuel determining Its kind. Pfnnturod alcohol as fuel tn coming into steneral uho on accmint of Its safety and clemllness. An oil stovo Is convenient If the fuel can be carried so as not to Injure the food, clothes or camp utenrlls. Of course, a blazing fire Is tho desire of every camper's heart, but on rainy days when the wood only smokes nnd sputters, an extra fire Is necessary The Designer for .Tulv. WIVES NEED MUCH WISDOM. After n Mnn Hns Hntl n Hnrd Buy In nn Olllnr, Tnrt Should Bp Employed. The day Is over, the office or study closed. The mnn of the law, of tho min istry, of what occupation you will, starts homeward, every nerve quivering with the battles he has been through and which have meant so much to him. As he turns In nt tho gate he remembers thnt he must say llttlo of the day's affairs, must not "talk shop," nn the little wife has hud her own troubles, no doubt. If theso affairs have been brought to n successful Issue he tells her briefly, omitting nil but bare detail; and If they have been defeats he leaves the dead black dog of worry outside the door, to follow him back again to the office In the morning. There are wlst wives who Invito thn black dog In to n place nt the fireside, and with a bone of common understanding subdue his tlerceness. Though John puts a seal nn his Hps as to the day's happenings, this same wise wife can tell hy signs she alone under stands that thlngsof theworkaday world have been especially hard to-ltlay, and she charms cnr away by moans alo known to her alone. She keeps heT own counsel to-night as to the shortcomings of Mnn' Ann, or speaks of domestic af fairs only In order to be advised; not to work off her own pique or nervous ness on some one else. If n man would only tell his wife more about his dnllj- problems, how many marital misunderstandings might be nrcrted. Most wives nre careless nbout It all, because most husbands never take the pains to enlighten them, nnd they somehow come to think thnt th going to work, and tho work Itself, is as much a part of the rnnscullne naturo ns a lovo for newspapers nnd old slippers, ond they bother little about It nil. -The De signer for July. Tlln HIGHER, SOCIAL SLAVERY. (From the New York World.) Mrs. Howard Gould's lulmtsslon that sho "could not dress properly on less than JtO.ooo a year," Is Interesting as showing how Bevero are tho sartorial obligations which the possession of wealth Imposes on women. Under this glided martydnm to fashion she was obliged to change her costumes threo times a day at Palm Beach "ling erie, gowns, shoes' hats, parasols nnd all" not because of nn extravagant tasto, but merely becauao "It Is had form to wear a gown twice In ono place." Moreover, by the unwritten law of smart soolal usages her Palm Beach trousseau who wholly unavailable nt tho St. Regis. .Her gowns were "no good" after she hail once worn them, and to roappenr In thorn nt a New York hotel would be In violation of the proprieties of dress. They were equally worthless at Castle Gould, whero the conditions of life on a country estute demanded gowns to cor respond. Mrs, Gould's testimony corroborates the criticisms of foreign writers on Ameri can social extravagances. But what they have failed to rncogntzo Is the patient submission of fnshlon's thralls to their bondage.

Language lessons are seldom more than forty cntB an hour In nny country of Europe. If tho student Is at all quick to grasp tho language, and especially if she is living among people who Invariab ly use It with her, a course of fifteen les sons Is nmple. Music lessons are more difficult to gage, but can always bo had much cheaper In conservatories than from prtvute Instructors. The latter charge from three francs (sixty cents) up, per lesson, whllo In the conservatories the usual rate Is twenty-five dollars a term for two lessons a wek, the terms being September to Jnnuary and Februnry to June. The same arrangement can be made In art schools, which are. of courso the only thing for art students and, by tho way, women nrt students nre none too kindly treated In Europe. They are put on a much more Inferior plane than the men, and nre seldom regarded with Interest or consideration. Amusements come cheap. Opera costs from twenty-five cents up, and this ot the class for which we pay from three to five dollars nt home. It is perfectly prop erIn fact, the usual thing for girls to frequent tho cheapest seats, and tho musical opportunities thus afforded are alone worth one's pnssnge, The thenter aro rnrely ns good ns at home, but are interesting as a phase of national llfo and Its expression; they also oro ridic ulously cheap. The D?dgner for July. WOMEN SUCCEED AS PIONEERS. Dakota Ioves a Good Field for Those Who Know Hotv to nnstte. Hundreds of women who all their lives have been accustomed to tho extromo comforts of life, have now turned pion eers and nre holding down claims In Da kota, says Sue SleNamara, In the De signer for July. Hundreds more drew farms nt tho rocont drawing and will soon be putting up their llttlo shacks. Sirs. J. St. Callender, formerly of Dee Slolnes, Iowa, Is now one of the pioneer women of Dallas. She was the first womsn to embark. In business In the hustling prnlre town. When Sire. Callen der opened her hotel In Dallas tlwro wore only three buildings In the town: a sa loon, a bnnk building nnd a house; but a gang of carpenters was there and they hnd to have a place to live. Sirs, Callen der placed cots and tables In the rear room of the bonk. A few months Inter she built the Hotel Dalian, a nea, mod em structure, nnd has been doing a thriving business ever since. Sho la both proprietor and manager of the hotel, Down at the end of Sfaln street, close to the depot, where it wns s-ure to catch the eye of the Incoming crowd, was a modest little shingle over a small build ing: "SIlss Ella SIcTTenry, Notary Pub lic." MIsj sriss JleHenry Is a smnll woman, but she got her full share of the business during the opening. There were In Dallas several young women who had renin from luxurious homes and lives of social gaiety In tho city to help their husbands mako their fortunes on the prnlre frontier. Nearly every woman In Dallas, no matter how well she was situated, caught the money-making fever during the great land rush. While their husbands were busy downtown tnklng can of the land seekers, these women wero at homo en gaged In making money. Slany a pretty little sitting-room was dismantled and fitted up as a bedchamber for tho accom modation of transient guests. Tlir. TEST OF BOSTON'S NEW CHARTER. (From the New Bedford Standard.)
