Many were the eyes thut were moist ened with tears when the sud intelli gence Mashed abroad that Mrs. .lennie Muy Akers, wife of Postmaster .lames S. Akers, of Akersvilie, had passed over the cold, icy billows of death, and gone to join her mother and a host of her loved ones who had passed from life to eternity before her. Mrs. Akers was a consistent member of the Christian church for eight years: her daily walk through health, and the patience with which she bore the pain through her long and continued Ill ness, were marks of her christian life which seemed devoted to her God and her fumily. The deceused has not been a woman of good health for years: but, until the latter part of the summer, she wus able to, at least, superintend her work. When her suffering became intoler able, she was taken it the Methodist hospital in Philadelphia, where she was treated for about a month and a half, but all that medical skill could do was only temporary, and she came buck to her home where all wus done that loving hearts and willing hands could do. Tuesday morning about one o'clock her spirit flew uway to the God who gave it, and on the following day, the body, in a leuutiful black casket, was borne from the house to the church by six young men, followed by a host of relatives and friends. After . an im pressive funeral sermon founded on these words "Blessed are they which die In the Lord"- her remains were interred in the Akersvilie Cemetery. The deceased was twenty-nine years, five month's, and twenty-eight days of age, und leaves to mourn her loss a devoted husbund, two children, Maude, aged ten years, and Carl, uged eight years, a father, one sister, one broth er, and u great number of relatives and friends who have the sympathy of all who knew her. A Fkif.ni). HOW TO COOK DISBANDS. An interesting recipe that may be of interest to women, especially those who are married, is here given: How to Cook Husbands. A good many husbands uro entirely spoiled by mismunugemenl In cooking, and so ure not tender and goodi Some women' keep them too constantly in hot water; others freeze them; others put them in a stew; others roust them, und others keep them constuntly In u pickle. It cannot be supposed that any husband will be good and tender mungled in this way, but they are really delicious when properly, treated. In selecting your husbund you should not be guid ed by a silvery appeurunce, as in buy ing mackerel, nor by the golden tint, as If you wanted salmon. Be sure and select him yourself, as tustes differ. Bo not go to the market for him, as those brought to the door are always best. It is far better to have none than not to learn how to cook them properly. It does not muke so much difference what you cook him in us how you cook him. See thut the linen in which he Is wrapped Is white and nicely mended, with the required num ber of strings and buttous. Don't keep him in the kettle by force, as he will stay there himself If proper cure Is tuken. If he splutter or li.z do not be-anxious; some husbands do tjiis. Add a little sugar in the form of what confectioners call "kisses," but no vinegar or pepper on any account. A little spice improves them, but it must be used with judgment. Do not try him with anything sharp to see if he Is becoming tender. Stir him gent ly the while, lest he stay too long in the kettle and become fiat and taste less. If thus treated you will find him very digestible, ugreeing nicely with you, and he will keep as long as you want. MARRIED. Tkiti.e HAY.

Though most jieople know that khaki is the namo of the material used for the uniforms worn by our own soldiers in tho Philipines and the British soldiers in South Africa, there is a strange dif ference in tho color adjectives us ed to describe it. This color is such as to afford the least possi ble chance for sharpshooters, but one will call it drab, another buff and still light brown or dirty yel low. As a matter of fact, it is best indicated by the Hindoo root from which the word is derived, khak dust. Khaki is dust-colored. It was, of course, originally used for the uuiforms of English East Indian regiments. Mr. Rudyard Kipling's spelling "kharki" has, by the way, no ety mological justification. His in trusion of the "r" is a little pho netic device, probably, in the in terest of tho cockney, to insure the broad sound being given to the vowel. Scotsmen and North Countrymen in England, and Americans in general, can ignoro this spelling of tho wiid.
