LINCOLN AND THE HAIR RESTORER. Here is a story of President Lincoln from the late Judge Car ter, who was a member of con gress from Cleveland during tin war and one of Mr. Lincoln's most inlimale friendft. It relates I to ii Quaker iliilantliro)isl from f heart were stone co-.l.l llwithslund j .n.iolphht who did Mot have ll I'he sweetness of my buby H plcn, . . '. . . . interest in public; affairs and was constantly calling at tin1 White House in behalf of somebody or I other who happened to be in trou ble and took up n great deal of Mr, Lincoln's time. The presi dent treated him with great courtesy, although his patience was frequently tried. One day when the philanthropist was par ticularly verbose and persistent and refused to depart, although lie knew that important delega tions wore waitin,!,', Mr. Lincoln suddenly rose, walked over to a wardrobe in the corner of the cabinet chamber and took a bottle from a shelf, Handing it to his visitor, he remarked: "Did you ever use this stuff on your head?" "No, sir; I never did." "Well," remarked Mr. Lincoln, "1 advise you to try it, and if at first you don't succeed, keep it THE CORPSE AND THE IHHl. The Other day a woman ship- Webster 1"' lr,r husband's remains over the N. Y. Central.

".Oh, he's comfortable, "replied the baggage man. ' "Anybody been sitting down on him?" "Who, tho dog?" "No, the corpse. " t "Certainly not," answered the baggage man. "Does it seem cool enough in here for him?" "For who, the corpse?" "No, the dog." "1 think so," grinned the bag gage master. "Does the jolting appear to af fect him any?" ( "Affect who, the dog?" "No, the corpse." "I don't believe it does." "You'll keep an eye on him, won't you?" she asked, wiping a tear away. "On who, the corpse?" "No, the dog." And having secured the bag gage man's promise, she went back to her coach apparently con tented. THE EERRIS WHEEL JUkhart, Wisconsin.

ANOTHER MEAN MAN. A llachclor and (lets Sewing Ma. cli inc Agcntn to Jo Ills Men ding. "lie's the meanest man that T ever had anything to do with," said the sewing -machine agent. "I received a note from him the other day saying that he desired to view one of our matchless ma chines with the view of purchas ing it if found to be satisfactory. In these piping days of competi tion it is a novelty for a sewing machine agent to be invited to call and show goods, so when I had recovered from my surprise I promptly loaded a machine iu my cart and started for the? address the man had given. "An old man met me at tho door and invited mo to bring tho machine inside so that he could more closely examine it. 1 did so, setting the machine up iu the sitting room, and calling his at tention to tho tine points. lie was an attent ive listener, and I talked with the confidence of a man who considered a. sale certain. Final ly, having exhausted all my argu ments, ho asked to see a practical test of th( capabilities of the ma chine. I agreed, and asked him to bring mo sonicthing'upou which to work. He left the room, re turning a few minutes later, his arms tilled with damaged linen. "I sat down at the machine and showed how easily rents and tears could bo mended, making a gar ment as good as now and saving in a short time the price of the machine. The mail seemed very luch interested and kept hand ing nie garment after garment that needed atteutiou. 1 worked for two solid hours mending tho old man's garments, and at last having nothing else that needed attention, he commenced to find fault with tho machine. Finally lie told mo that he guessed he wouldn't buy a machine right away. "I was so mad that I didn't dare trust myself to speak, and I was glad afterward that I didn't, for when I learned the whole truth I realized my total inability to do tho subject justice. That miserable old sinner, who hap pens to be a bachelor, had bro't mo up there merely to do his mending and had no idea of buy ing a machine, lie has worked the same game on other agents." New York Sun. HIS NERVE WON. "It was such a good joke on mo," said the girl in gray to the girl in blue as they stirred their chocolate, "that 1 must tell you. "You know how John litis been proposing to me at regular inter vals ever since he was out of knickerbockers. Well, he did it again the other night, and, with his usual facility, chose au occa sion when I was very cross. "He did it a little more awk wardly than usual, too, deliber ately choosing the old fashioned method of offering me 'his hand and heart.' " Hero she paused to drink some chocolate, and the girl in blue asked breathlessly what she said. "Oh," remarked the other in the tone of one relating au event of no importance, "I told him that I believed I was already provided with the full quota of. bodily or gans, and that I wouldn't deprive him." "And what did he say?" "Well, Hollo, that's the funny thiug. Ho seemed to brace up, and said jxilitoly that at any rate there was no doubt about my hav ing my full share of cheek! And I was so delighted to find a man capable of even that much repar tee on being rejected that I ac cepted him. "Cincinnati Enquir or. HAWTHORNE AND SALEM. Way down iu a little side street iu Salem is Hawthorne's birth place. It is modest, but withal a proper house with a gambrel roof, without which no house need apply for tho position of bringing forth celebrities. Be yond is that bore of a custom house, and all around are houses of seven gables. You will be pur sued by little buys who spot your tourist's iuteut and who give you Hawthorne's history at a rate that threatens the urchin's ton gue and teeth. When they are through, if you have not under stood it all, they will say it all over again. A penny iu tho slot phonograph could do it no better. T-Tinio uud the hour. TO O RE HAMS AND HACON. There are two methods of cur ing on tho farm dry salting and pickling. Dry salting is more largely practiced than pickling, but in our experience we have been led to prefer tho pickling. A brine strong enough to float a potato is used, and after the meat is cut and trimmed it is dropped into this brine for two or throe days to draw out the blood. It is then taken out and a fresh brine is made, or the old brine boiled and skimmed. To the brine we then add one ounce of saltpetre and a piut of black molasses for each loo pounds of meat. The meat is then return ed to the brine, the thinner parts remain in the brine three weeks, and the hams four or five weeks, care being taken to keep all under the brine. The meat is then talc en out and hung in the smoke house, or elsewhere to drip and dry somewhat. It is then slowly smoked with corn cobs or hickory wood, the smoke being smother ed down with green cedar branch es if they are to be had. The smoking is continued for several weeks in favorably cloudy weath er, until all are well smoked. The hams should have the upper part of the smokehouse, where the smoke hangs longest. Iu the early spring the hams are taken down and rubbed well all over with a mixture of molas ses and black pepper. They are then wrapped iu stout paper and put into cottage bags, which are dipped in whitewash, and are again hung up. Some pack- them down in the chaff, but we prefer to keep them hanging. They are at their best for the table or mar ket at a your old, and one who tastes a year old or older ham cured in this way, never wants to taste the "embalmed hams" of the Western packers again as long as he lives. PROSPECT EOR COOD PRICES lOR WHEAT. Statistics prepared by John Hyde, the export of the agricul tural department at Washington, show that tin; wheat supply of the world this year, as compared with last, is one-eighth smaller. Tho average of three1 of the best estimates of the wheat crop for lM'.M) gives tho total yield as !!, .'40,01 0,0l0 bushels, leaving a dif ference of ;)l7,000,000 bushels be tween the crop this year and last. In overytuing, save in maize, there is a striking shortage, while in maize there is a surplus. These facts cannot but help to iulluence the price of wheat for the better. While the world's crop has shown a shortage, the crop iu this coun try is a record-breaking one. Tho world therefore must coine to the American markets for Hour and its bread for the coming 1'2 months. Tho certainty that this will occur will have the effect of strengthening prices. HOW TO COOK ONIONS. Onions are not only delicious when properly prepared, but they are said to be almost the best nervine known. Nothing will so quickly relieve nervous prostration. They are less di gestible raw, and yet 111:1113" per sons eat thoin very freely iu that state without discomfort. Ouious should bo boiled from one to two hours. If they are peeled under water tears will be avoided. Af ter the ouious are boiled until tender drain and pour them over a white sauce, or melted butter, popper and salt. If brown on ions are desired for garnishing, place them, after they are boiled tender, iu a pan; sprinkle with salt, popper and a little sugar and put them iu a hot oven to brown, What becomes of all tho pen nies? A superficial answer might be that wo spend them, as in truth we do; but did 3'ou over stop to consider the enormous quanti ties of the little copper coins turn ed out by tho Philadelphia mint every year? The ligures tiro re ally appidliug in their magnitude. There are at present about 1,000, 000,000 cents in circulation, and yet tho mint is compelled to turn out nearly 4,000,000 a mouth to keep up the supply. It seems as though this most common coin must in some mysterious fashion vanish iu the air, for surely no body hoards them. Tho fall overcoat cropisa failure. I'AYINC; (II I SCHOOL LENDS.
