In The Ladies' Homo Journal Mrs. S. T. Itorer writes at length to show that Americans cut too much meat, but says she docs not want to bo understood as con demning meat entirely. Individually she uses "all (with the exception of pork and veal) in moderation and toward the clone of tho day. From long experience," sho says, "I have found thut a heavy morn ing's work can beft bo accomplished on a breakfast composed of a well cooked cereal and fruit, with perhaps a cup of French coffee or cereul cofl'co und a ploco of well toasted whole wheat breud. The noonday meal, especially if work is to bo continued in tho alternoon, should bo composed of a cream soup, with whole wheat bread, an omelet, some of the lighter forms of nitrog enous food, in tho proportion of one-third to two-thirds carbonaceous food. Fruits, again, may bo taken, if they agree a buked banana, u baked, apple, peaches, peurs or any of the very ripe, subacid fruits. "After tho day's work is over and one can tnko time to rest and thorouxhly di gest a meal dinner should be served. A warm beef soup, stimulating rather than nitrogenous, should form the beginning of tho meal. This may bo followed by some light entreo, either of flsh or vcgetablo, then the red meat, either boiled, broiled or roasted (never fried), with its accom panying vegetable. With beef serve pota toes or macaroni as the starchy food, with mutton Or chicken rice. A green vegeta ble should be added for its suits, and this may bo onions or young peas, beuus, cauliflower or spinach. The salad should follow, and with it a tiny bit of cheoso, with a ploce of whole wheat bread, a bread stick or a water biscuit. Then a simple, light dessert may be served. " The Famous Paris Garret. There are few persons interested in things literary who being in Paris with in the last 10 or 15 years can have fail ed to hear of the garret of M. de Oon court. M. de Goncourt himself would perhaps have preferred people to say the garret of "the brothers Goncourt," al though, as is well known, the institu tion was originated and flourished only after the death of the younger brother. The "garret" specifically was a charm ing room, half hall, half library, on the third floor of tbe little Lonis XVI hotel at Auteuil which M. Edmond de Gon court occupied during the whole latter part of his life; generically it was the meeting together of kindred spirits, of disciples and admirers and friends of tho old maitre, the germ of tho academy which it was Edmond do Goucourt's dream to establish in opposition to tho academy of tho 40 immortals, and the nursery, as it were, where talents were grown to ripeness for tho honor of ad mission to that tame especial academy. Aline Gorreu iu Scribuer's. Speculation Stopped. Governor Stephens of Missouri tho other day commuted the sentence of a negro who had been condemned to death for murder to imprisonment for 50 years. When she heard of it, the ne gro's mother was so happy that sho be gan to smoke n corncob pipe. Some one having suggested to her that after all 50 years' imprisonment was a pretty heavy punishment, sho exclaimed: "Wot's 50 years? Pshaw, wot's de penitentiary to Willie? Ain't he a young man? Wot's 50 years to him? Anywnys ho ain't goin to hang. 1 doan' havo to stay up nights an go cryiu about an tpcculutin myself to death. I done stop speculatin. 1 done stop hit." New York Tiibuuc. Even Handed J ant Ice. One day in early summer, when the oommorciala" had met U9 usual for din nor, tho waitress appeared bearing a small dish of peas, apologizing for thero being so few, tho fact being that no moro could bo obtained. Immediately tho dish win. set down it was seized by the "grabber," who emptied the whole contents on hi plate, saying: "As there are not enough t go around. It would 1)0 a pity to part them. So I'll tako tho lot myself." At this another traveler seated oppocMt quietly took up tho pepper box, unscrewt. the top and poured tho wholoof the pepper over tho pons, with tho calm remark: "As you have got all tho peas, you may as well havo All tho pepper too." A murmur of applause wont round, and from that day tho grabbing one found it convenient to alter his line of route and take a different journey. Pearson'i. WecUly .

Roses being so common, it may be imagined how small the yield of oil must be to account for a quoted price of 86 shillings an ounce, or about 28 per pound, and this to the chemist himself. What it resolves itself into as a retail price is hardly worth going into, as a retail demand beyond an occasional drop at sixpence upon a handkerchief, upon a special occasion is unknown, its chief use being in scenting powders and the making up of fancy compound scents. Ten thousand pounds, or nearly five tons, cf roses it takes to obtain a pound cf the oil. These are distilled with twice their bulk of water, and the attar skimmed very carefully skimmed off the surface of the distillate in the receiving vessel. Tho adulterator has again here a field for action, which be avails himself of, in distilling a propor tion of geranium flowers, the oil of which has a somewhat similar rosy smell, with tbe roses, this paying, in that it takes but tbe comparatively humble number of 500 geranium flowers to yield a pound of their oil. Constantinople being a port of chip ment, sailors, after their usual amiable weakness of being swindled, buy cheap ly there, for presentation to apprecia tive wives and sweethearts at home. long, narrow, gilded bottles of supposed attar of roses, in reality bottles which tbe genuine article has been poured iu to and out again and then filled with a clear, scentless oil of the 6am e appear ance and specific gravity r.s the true, the few remaining drops clinging to the interior of tbe bottle being strong enough to convince the smelling buyer that he has got the right thing on the spot. Chambers' Journal. Lamps of the London Cabs. "A thing that struck me about the hansom cabs in London this was some years ago, but I guess it's just the same now," said a citizen of this town, "was the fact that the lamps they carried all had in the back a red glass about as big as the end of a good sized spool. When the lamps were lighted at night, they all 6b owed these two little red disks at tbe rear. I don't know why this is so maybe the lamps are all by one maker and it's his fancy but I imagine there's a reason for it. Anyhow tbe effect is picturesque, whether the cabs are seen singly or in numbers. In tho Strand, for instance, one may see long lines of hansoms, all headed one way and close together. Looking along these lines from the rear one sees an unbroken scries of red lights diminishing in tho perspective, and one sees also tho little red lights flitting here and there. They don't illuminate, but their color cer tainly contributes to the variety and the nayety of the night scene. "One tecs these red lights at the roar of a New York hansom, but only occa eionally. Our hansoms aro most of them well finished and mounted, many of them, for instance, carrying fine lamps; but not many of them show the red disks. Perhaps there's no reason why they should, but I like to see them." New York Sun. Men mod Dorses Killed In Battle. In regular battles tbe proportion of loss among men and horses is quite closo, and in hand to hand combat3 of cavalry, as well cs in tharp artillery engagement?, for every man killed or wounded thoro is also a dumb warrior entitled to n placo beside him on tbe roll of hose.;-. The Light brigade at Balaklava ruao in CCO (not COO) strong and lost 288 men, but of the C60 horses SCO were shot down by the Russian guns. In the fierce charges of the German uhlans and cuirassiers at Vionville, Mars-la-Tour, in 1870, 1,400 men and 1,600 horses were killed and wounded. In the fierce artillery contest on the same field 7S0 men and over 1,000 horses fell around the guns. At Grave lotte, soon after Mars-la-Tour, theartil lery fighting was also terrible, and 1,800 horses were shot down around the batteries, though the loss of the artiller ists was less than 1,000.

During the last few years the demand for pedigreo English cattle for Argen tina has been enormous. Shorthorns, Herefords and Devous have been im ported weekly, and a crossbred English 6tock now fills the "corrals"-of the great boef and bovril companies of tbe Rio do la Plata. In North America this Anglicizing process has spread to all the states of tho Union. Half bred Herefords and Shorthorns are taking the place of the common rattle of tho States on near ly all tho ranches of the beef producing districts, and the colonizing capacity of different English breeds is recommend ing them for special districts. Thus the Devon bulls are purchased for ranches where tlio search for pasture and water needs special nctivity and endurance, and red "polled" or hornless Suffolks are used where cattle aro being bred for transit by rail or ship because the ab sence of horns is then convenient. Even tropical Brazil follows tho fashion, and English Jersey cows aro seen demurely walking through the forcF paths by the coffee plantation and Lglish terriers and pug dogs sit $i the laps of Brazilian ladies. Whether tho Jersey cattle will multi ply on tho planters' estates tiino will show, but the spread of our colonizing animals, which are now invading simul taneously tho plains of Patagonia and the north Canadian territory, does not limit its progress to the direction of the poles. In India the English horso be comes a colcnist by second intention, in the form of tho "waler," a sounder and stronger animal than the majority of British hackneys. His value, as com pared with the native breeds of Asia, is still undetermined, but we must accept bis presence and survival as a fact. Loudon Spectator. Boa p. The first distinct mention of soap now extant is by Pliny, who fpcaks of it as an invention of the Gauls; but be that as it may, tho usoof soap for wash ing purposes is of great antiquity. In the ruins of Pompeii n complete soap man ufactory was found, and the utensils and some soap were in a tolerable state of preservation. The Gallic soap of eighteen centuries ago was prepared from fat and wood ahe s, particularly the ashes from beech wood, which wood was very common in Franco as well as iu England. Soap is spoken of by writ ers from tho second century, but the Saracens were tho first people to bring it into general use as an external cleans ing medium. The uso of soaj) is thus described: "When examined chemical ly, the skin is found to be composed cf a substance analogous to dried white cf egg; iu a word, albumen. Now, albu men is soluble in the alkalies, and when soap is used for washing the skin the excess of alkali combines with the oily fluid with which the skin is natu rally bedewed, removes it in the form cf an emulsion, and with a portion of the dirt. Another portion of the alkali soft ens and dissolves the superficial stratum of the skin, and when this is rubbed off tho rest of tho dirt disappears. So that every washing of tho skin with soap re moves tho old face of the skin and leaves a new one, and wero the process repeat ed to excess tho latter would become attenuated." Philadelphia Lodger.
