Toaster THE ELECTRIC LIGHT COHP'Y HOUSEHOLD HINTS. If when drying curtains they are hung double over the line they will not stretch at all, as Is bo often the case when hunsr up by the edge. To keep a meal hot for a late comer, fill the soup plate nearly full of hot water, place the dinner plate with Its contents on top of the hot soup plate and cover closely with still another plate. To prevent raisins or fruit sinking to the bottom of cukes or puddings, Hour them well before mixing. A grape basket for the clothes pins, with a 'wire hook fastened to the han dle, will save much time when hanging out clothes, as It may be pushed aloifj the line and will always be handy. In selecting beef the pieces which ore well mottled with fat will be found the richest and Juiciest. TIES CAN BE CLEANED. Ties need not be cast into the ash can us soon as they show the least sign oC being soiled. Why not take a soft cloth and some benzine and clean them so as to make them appear new? In handling this oil extreme care Is required, and it should be kept far away from tire. When cleaning the ties you can lay them Hat on a piece of wrapping pa per, notl printed paper, and with doth and cleaning fluid, administer a good scouring. Do not be afraid of spoiling silks, as they will not be injured in the least; In fact, their rejuvlnatlon will be mar velous. TO PROTECT THE WALLS. When you want to keep a piece of furniture from defacing the wall or woodwork, and are not able to get the little rubber buttons or guards, take the fingers of an old kid glove stuff hard with cotton to the-size you need fasten on the back of the article In question with tiny tacks at each end, and they will answer the purpose and are quite Inconspicuous. MENDING TORN LACE. For mending torn net lace take a strong thread and needle and button hole stitch loosely lengthwise in every mesh; having finished one row turn lace around and buttonhole In every buttonhole which was Just finished, doing this till the tear Is mended. This has been found Invaluable in mending net waists and net lace curtains, for It looks and lasts much longer than or A dinary darning. SOFTENS LINEN. Heavy fabrics, linen especially, are hard to sew, even when they are new. Any one who has done much hemming of napkins, towels and tablecloths does not need to be told this. This stiffness may be overcome and the work made much eusler by keeping at your side a glass of warm water and dipping' your fingers Into it as you work. The linen is then softened. LININGS OF STOLES. The linings of stoles are nowadays occupying more than a little attention. The fur is not heavily lined, thus avoiding weight In even very long and wide pieces, but is luxuriously finished with first a lining of liberty satin, cov- : ered, It may be, with silver net and edged with a full plaiting of the sliver I net tulle. NECKWEAR FANCIES. Frill dainty necklaces onto a half Inch wide piece of tape, baste Into the 1 neck of sleeves of both of your waists. The lace cannot be torn when ripped out and can be more easily laundered. TO HIT TOBACCO PRICE OF LEAF TOBACCO 8AID TO BE. ADVANCING BUT SMOK ERS HAVE NOT BEEN HURT YET. One product of the soil on which the price has been appreciably increased of late without the consumer being visibly affected, is tobacco. Though the manufacturer of cigars, smoking to bacco and chewing tobacco are being called upon to pay constantly Increas ing prices for the leaf, the Increases have not yet reached the Jobber, the retailer or the consumer, but further advunces in the prices of the raw material are likely to affect the mar ket generally. One may still buy his cigar or favor ite brand of smoking tobacco at the same price as he paid a year ago, but In the case of smoking tobacco the size of the package has been slightly cut down, In many Instances. Formerly, the retailers bought smoking tobacco at bo much per pound; now It Is sold at so much per gross or package. No .weight is given on the packages, and though they appear the same size as before, as a matter of fact, fourteen ounces of to bacco are now made to fill the same number of packages as did sixteen ounces formerly. Retailers are begin ning to fear that If the price contin ues to advance, that either the quali ty of standard brands of cigars and to bacco will be Impaired, or prices to the consumer will have to advance. "There has been a marked Scarcity of clear Havana leaf for the past six months and that, together with the strike of cigar makers who closed fac tories at Tampa, has greatly reduced the available supply of straight Hav ana cigars on the market," said a cigar dealer yesterday. "The strike has been called off in Tampa, but many of the cigar makers have left there and have located elsewhere so that the volume of manufacturing will not be normal for some time. Many people believe that Tampa cigars are better than any others for the money, and while I be lieve very good straight Havana cigars are made elsewhere, there Is something In the theory. Labor is cheaper In Tampa and conditions are better there for the manufacture of cigars from Havana leaf. "In consequence of the strike and the scarcity of Havana leaf, a large num ber of straight Havana brands have left the market and smokers have been compelled to turn to new brands for straight Havana. On account of the difficulty experienced in securing stock, some manufacturers of cigars have changed their brands from straight Havana to broad-leaf and the broad-leaf cigar is constantly gaining In favor. Domestic brands will always be popular, but the devotees of domes tic cigars on the one hand and Havana and broad-leaf cigars on the other are so widely separated that what may af feet one wouldn't affect the other. "I don't believe that the advances In the tobacco market will affect the con sumer If no greater advances are made. Manufacturers cannot afford to Impair the quality of their goods, for discriminating smokers would soon discover the fact. The manufacturers would rather reduce their margin of profit. If advances are made to the re taller, they will be In the shape of in creases of 10-cent cigars to 15 cents. The price of some brands of chewing tobacco has already been advanced to the retailer.

EQUALS BEST- BARON TOLD Achievements of Modern Science Make Story More Incredible Than Any I of Munchausen's. Haron Munchausen's famous book of travels was published in 1785, cx ctly a century and a quarter ago. That Is not a very long time, says tho New York Evening Post. But suppose Munchausen had professed to carry bis travels Into an undiscovered land, where science and invention had huci start of a century or two as com pared with Europe; and suppose that be had told of an invention by which the exact picture of an object was permanently impressed upon a plate by a brief exposure to light; that at flrst it took some minutes of ex posure to mako the picture, but that fear by year methods were found for ncreaslng the sensitiveness of the plates, until at last a picture could be obtained in an almost infinitesimal fraction of a second; that a favorite musement of the people was to look tt a swift succession of pictures of this kind, portraying persons and things in motion, which produced upon the eye the precise impression of the original living scene; but that some exhibitors of ' such scenes got into trouble because the actors in them had indulged in vile language, forget ful of the fact that the motion of their lips was perfectly reproduced, and that deaf mutes had been taught to read the Hps. Would not this story bave been regarded as equaling in In credibility, and surpassing In gro tesqueness, almost anything the baron actually put into his book? Beat Him to It.

And the Egg From Which Wat Hatch- ed the Great Charter. " 1 ' Richard Davey In "The Tower of London" connects the historic edifice with the wresting of the great charter from King John. King John, it would seem, though le gally married to Isabella of Angou lerae, fell desperately iu love In 1214 with "Matilda" or "Maud," "the Fair, the beautiful daughter of Robert, Lord Fltzwalter. This lady, remaining deaf to his entreaties, was treacherously abducted from her father's scat at Dunmow by the king's order and shut up in the round turret of the White tower. On this Fltzwalter made a vain attempt to rouse the people to re volt, but was forced to fly to France with his wife and remaining children. Maud once safe in the tower, King John renewed his suit, but only suc ceeded in driving her to utter silence, which so Infuriated him that he sent her a poisoned egg for her breakfast, and she died early in 1215. A year later her remains were translated to the family vault at Dunmow. When the news of this crafty mur der came to the enrs of Fltzwalter he forthwith returned to England nnd discovered to his joy that the barons were on the point of declaring war against John. He at once placed him self nt their head, hoping. It is said, to combine his personal revenge with his duty as an English peer nnd is Indeed supposed to have forced the king to sign the great charter for tho express purpose of humiliating his daughter's murderer. Thus from an egg was hatched the great charter. Whether the story le true or false. It is a cer tified historical fact that the barc:3 hold the tower In pledge till John con sented to accept the charter and af fixed his reluctant signature to tho deed. About n year later, when the war with the barons was at Its height and John once more a power, the tower again fell Into his hands, nnd, though tho barons laid sloge to it. they were repulsed by tho king's men. To com plete its strange vicissitudes during this strenuous reign tho tower became on Nov. 1, 1215, the temporary court of King Louis of France, whom the rebellious bnrons had summoned to assist in the adjustment of their griev ances. Appearing before tho gates with a large body of men. he so com pletely awed the officials that they handed over the keys without striking n blow for their rightful monarch. FREAKS OF A RIVER. A Stream So Crooked That It Double Crosses Itself. There is a stream In Massachusetts called the North river.' It starts in n pond near Hansou and runs to the sea at Sdtuate. It Is ten miles by air line from llauson to Scltuate, and the river is forty miles long. This river is probably the most re markable body -of water, barring the Dead sea, on this footstool and has 6tood more abuse and badlanguage than the Chicago liver. When the tide is coming In the liver runs upstream, nnd not only that, but the upper part of it, which is fresh water, also runs up, and the spectacle of a fresh water river beating it uphill is nloue enough to call attention to Itself. But there is much more to It than that The North river Is noted for being the scene of the last Indian raid on te coast settlements. It Is notable for having given birth to the ship Colum bia, whose captain discovered and named the Columbia river, and was tho first American vessel to circum navigate the world. It Is notorious for having suddenly changed its mind on its course on the night of Nov. 27, 18iS. when it moved Its mouth three miles to the northward, presented the town of Marshlield with n deep harbor, killed three men nnd converted nbout 200,000 acres of prime meadow laud Into a salt marsh. But the chief thing about this river Is its crookedness. This river is so crooked that it double crosses Itself. If you don't believe it go nnd see. There is one place in Hanover where by making three loops the river moves toward tho sea for a distance of al most fifty feet nnd meanders about for fifteen miles in doing It. Boston Traveler.

LOWER BERTHS STILL FAVORED REDUCTION IN COST OF UPPER BERTHS NO INDUCEMENT TO THE TRAVELING PUBLIC. They are not lining up In front of the ticket counter with a rush to grab off the reduced uiper berths. For several days there has been a marked-down sale of upper berths at the passenger offices of the various rallroad.4 over the country. Tho up pers are goimg at a reduction of i.'0 per cent of their former value, but as yet the big red letter railroad sule has been without noticeable results. "(live us the lowers, even if they cost a dollar more," observed two com mercial men who purchased tickets at the Calumet station yesterday. Inquiry leads to the statement that so far In the short life of tho reduced price of tho upper berth, there has been no Increased bnanl for It be cause you can ride to Milwaukee for 25 cents cheaji-fT than you could be fore tho Interstate commerce commis sion made effective Its sweeping order. "It Is early yet and public sentiment must he counted on," said one veteran railroad man hero this morning. "You see people, and this applies es pecially to the traveling public, are very timid about breaking the Ice that covers any new custom. They wonder what tho other per,p -will ay. For that very reason, until the time when the upikth come to bo more generally patronized for thc-lr cheapness alone, you will ifino some, of tho more care ful, those who care more for the opin ion of owners, even more eager for the lowers. "They have gotten the Idea that peo ple of a poorer and cheajer class gen erally, will now patronize the sleep ing cars, end that these people will naturally ride lit the much despised upper. When they get rid of this idea, and when a man iVnds that on a long trip he can save enough money to buy his breakfast and perhaps dinner the next day on the dining car. I believe you will find the upper will le more generally patronized. Ilallroad men hero are Inclined to believe that In the end the reduction of price will make a difference. They ibelievc that It will result In an ln ci eased travel In the uplr 'berth, but there, has been no increased demand for the uppers as yet. Where Women Work.
