t f TN V sc T has been stated, and very truthful ly, too. that women as a rule dress to please men. Certain it is that more 7 thought is given to a toilette which is i to grace an assem- blage at which both men and women are present than for function which , l reset nobles an Ad- aiuless Eden. In so dn !iiur women forget in striving after effect to be particularly careful in the matter of detail, and. after all. it is the men who are the greatest crit ics in this line. They appreciate a pleasing ensemble, but they are likewise more than quick to note any little defect, and thereupon judge the whole costume accordingly. In a large shop where imported cos tumes are sold the writer waited her turn to be served. While she was do ing this a young saleswoman began to dress up one of the Agares used to dis play the gowns. In a moment up rush ed the head of the department a man. let it be stated and said he: "Miss 1 -4 !&J cftv -PxVvfl lx3.v M't I MrxX Ä&hdJiTBM , r 0 I v V v A Mil ?m 1TYE IMAGES ON ONE PLATE.

The man who had noticed this turned to the writer and said: "Isn't that just like a woman?" Now. sisters mine, was he truthful or was he not 1 We have but to question our own inner selves to answer this query. It is humiliating to admit that, in our de Sire to please with the outer semblance of elegance, we are apt to slight the loose button on the BUM or the frayed BOftnCS on the petticoat. Innate breeding shows in these trifles and the genuinely refined woman would as soon think of going out with a dirty face as to slip on her outer p:r mentS over petticoats that were uot Spotlessly white. If you cannot wear silks don the plainer fabrics with the knowledge that even though you are not regally dotb ed you are at least well groomed from head to foot. There is no clesranee hi silk attire that covers unlidy linen and soiled lace, lie dainty; be scrupulously neat, and you will possess a beauty far more potent than can be attained through the medium of shoddy linery.

It seems to be :i fact that a majority ol" women, married or single, believe they are abused by the men just be cause the latter happen to have control of business affairs, run politics and do the eourtiag. The woman of marriageable age who is still living at home feels that men are Rot doing right by her. She naturally wants to marry, have a big wedding, go on a totir of the Bastern States or Western, as the ease may be. Bui si has to go on Waiting because no man asks her to join him In these festivities. For this reason she feels that she is an abused creature. The old maid who settles down to earn her own living just hates the men, beta PUS they allow her to wear her iiußfr-naii off scratching for bread. The sight of a mafl walking comforta bly along the street, or driving, or even lounging around some resort, causes her Indignation to rise to the top notch. Why do they thus continue to abuse her? The shop girl wonders why the boys do not gather round her and ask her to choose one of them to be her defender and supporter. She is quite certain that she should not be permitted to live by the sweat of her brow, and the whole of the blame is placed on the young men who are earning money enough for two and spending it for their own comfort. Married women are the loudest com plalners and their complaints are gen erally against their husbands. It is all right daring the honeymoon, but when that is over and they turn to face the realities of life they feel that they are being abused. Her household duties are heavier than when she was at home, her husband Is not the singing lover who tilled her heart with joy and her days are not as thickly Interspersed with picnics as when she was a girl. As she thinks over this she becomes more and more deeply convinced that she is a much-abused woman: that hus bands are not half as nice as beaux and is quite certain that she never would have married had it not been for the men. A Fault in Piano I'lnyiiii. A well-known paino teacher says that ( ne of the most common faults In piano playing is the practice of playing the two hands out of time with each other. Nine players out of ten iermit the left hand to lead the right, when the two should strike the keys simultaneously. It is a sort of swagger that pr duces a very inartistic effect, of course there are rare discs where this dilatoriness of the right hand may be legitimate, but it should be remembered that in gener al it is reprehensibe and should be carefully avoided. If the composer In dicates the simultaneous performance Of the notes belonging to the two hands, 1 v not the slightest discrepancy be manifest. To play the two hands out of time with each other is to be not only inaccurate, but to appear affected. Shallow players resort to such devices to cover up the lack of ability to play with expression. It takes the place of shading and phrasing with the super ficial. M'ilTV Are Small n-itl Dainty.

AGRICULTURAL NEWS THINGS PERTAINING TO THE ! FARM AND HOME. A Wilc Field for I) - velopmcnt in the Uc of Mulches Why the Farmer Dociis PI Taila Decline i.i the Cat lb- Sappy- Not CS Bow a Hatch Acts. The value of a mulch Is only partially appreciated by Americans, and there is a wide held for development in using mulches of all kinds. We obtain our ideas of mulches from the prairies and forests, Where nature ferne; her own mulch. The decaying leaves and stems soon form a mars on the surface, which prevents the sail from 1- sing much of its moisture. This Ii:!' tr. ilil ftli'1 Sirv nwmnoa reseuuic Mt7 a protecting covering for ' it will be found around v forest, and around the r crasses on every mead v. In irn i PK inj: nature, as she works In the fleld and forest, we adopted the artiAcial mulch around our fruit trees, and found that it worked to their advantage, a mulch besides retaining the moisture in the soil, also secures a mere uniform tem perature and add:: considerable plant food to it. The nature of the mulch Is an important part of the work. Plat stones may be used around trees, form ing a permanent mulch, but their ac tion is merely mechanical. It retains the moisture and temperature of the soil, but it adds nothing to it. Sawdust it but a little better, but straw and new mown lawn grass form rich mulch S that add plant food to the soil. The next change v. hich takes place in the soil when a covering is placed over the surface is not generally understock Some chemical change takes place, and the soil is enriched for a time. In some of th.e gardens of France the benefits derived from shading a portion of the soil is understood and carried out suc cessfully. Tiles cover the strawberry beds, with holes made through thn here and there for the vines to grow cut of. Flower gardens are like wis covered with tiles or cement, leaving no part of the soli exposed except where the plants come through. Expert hor ticulturists there find this method of groat advantage. In a less expensive way parchment paper can be used for covering garden soil. Brown paper dipped in sulphuric acid should be used for this purpose, as it Is then made tough and waterproof. In times of drought this mulch acts splendidly. It retains the water, accelerates th growth of the plants and keeps down the weeds. More experiment with mulches will in time make gardening much easier and more profitable. Tbo parchment paper mulch, however, for small places is the simplest, cheapest, ami most effectual that has yet been ex perimented with. Grange Hume.,. To preserve celery during tte winter season is no easy task, and many good practica men fail In the task. For one or two seasons we tried lifting the heads and planting them in cold frames or storing in cellars. When placed in eellars the celery kept fairly well, but became tough, stringy and of very poor, flavor, owing in a large measure, no doubt, to the lack of moisture at the root. In frames we usually lost a large proportion of roots from rot. For the past year or two we have succeeded in keeping celery in g ood condition until the end of March In the open ground. ! 1,0 'lMPt' in the end than to rely Our late cr-i vre plant on -round which Uie warmth th;it comes always from has a gentle decline and where the s II decaying vegetation in the cellar.

Thinning Fruit Mr. Edward W. Lincoln, i-i bis report to the Worcester County (Mass.) Horti cultural Society, states that from prac tical experience tilt re is no alternate bearing fruit The reason why trees do not bear In succ tsive years is chief ly from the fad thai they have been allowed to ovcrb itr the previous year, lie experim nted chiefly on pears. From i stogie e of the BeBs Lucra tive he pulled off 2,00 y rung fruit. Not only does this pra :i ?e tend togive reg ular crops every y but the size and quality of the fruii is much enhanced by this practice. He thinks .here is no more reason why fruit growers should not systematically thin out the too abundant crops, than there is for not hoeing out superabundant coi a and po tatoes. .Median's Monthly.

Farmers' Bulletin No. 21, issued by the United States Department of Agri culture is a compact little monograph ou the value and the proper manage ment of barn yard manure. If the fertilizing constituents of use manure produced by ail the farm animals of the United States are estimated at tin lr market value the total amount foots up to the enormous sum of more than $2,000,000 in a year. This esti mate tiers not mean that the manure produced by our farm animals is actu ally worth that amount of money to the fanners, for much of it Is actually thrown away and much of it is oare- h-ssiy applied, it means, however, tfe the phosphoric acid, potash and Nkv, ;,, trl-.-. , tM nro.irw mnt!n V : r i . I ccvfit that much if it was pur- l iaised. It ought to be borne In mind. r.o, that if this valuation is too high 1l takes no account of the use of manure in improving th" mechanical condition and the drainage of the soil, which i. almost ss Important as its actual fer tilizing value. Prof. Roberts, of Cor nel University, thinks that $290 is a conservative estimate of the value of the manure produced during seven win- lei months on a small farm which car ries four horse-, twenty COWS, fifty sheep and tea pigs. At least one-third of this is lost, which would mean for the whole country a waste of nearly $700,000,000. This little pamphlet of thirty -odd paces gives plain directions for protecting this valuable product from loss by fermentation or by the leaching out of its soluble constituents. It also explains the rational methods of preserving and applying manure. Honey and Its Market. It lias been suggested that, unless a C"-d price be ashed, it will not be se cured. And there is more truth than poetry in that hint, though, if the price asked be too high there will also be fewer sales and consequently less money obtained, but more honey left on the producer's hands. It seems to me that comb honey, in most home markets, should bring not less than 20 cents per single section, or six sections for $1. Extracted honey should retail, per single pound, at 15 cents, or eight pounds for $1. These prices certainly are not hich, and yet probably large enough to sufficiently reward any rea sonable producer in a fair honey sea son. There is much education In this mat ter of the price of honey, as well as to Its constant use in the family. By start ing out rightly a better price can be se cured and maintained, and also more sales be made; while if there is a wrong beginning it will be well nigh impossi ble to correct it later on.

Bcgnlating Cellar Temperature, As soon as cold weather comes an ef- fort should be made to g t sonic of the cold air into the cellar, especially if it is used for the storing of fruits and veg etables. It may take some more fire wood or coal to keep the living rooms above at proper warmth, but the cellar kept between 35 to 40 degrees will save many doctor's bid-, before Spring. That Odds and Ihnls. The lighter the color on the walls of room, the less artificial light will be re quired. A bright, strong kerosene light is the best substitute for daylight, as far as human eyesight is concerned. A skewer is always better than a fork for testing vegetables whila cooking, as it does uot break them up so much. To keep egs yolks for a day or two put them in a cup and cover with col'd water which may be poured off when the eggs are to be used. Gelatin contains much protien matter but it does not digest readily in this form, therefore it is not a nourishing form of food. In combination with other things it is of little value. A soup stock before clarifying will ; consist of three layers, the fat on top, the clear gelatinous part and the coagU- ; lated albumen at the bottom of the dish. ! This lower strata contains about all the nourishment and is the part that is ta- I ken out by clarifying.

TOO MUCH EMOTION. A Prize Winner at the ConKcrvatory Could Not IMnv Hifi riute. It is seldom that SIIJ) I blag really funny happens in a criminal trial In court. Such proceedings are iuris a efcoly enough. Bat in France, where the people have a genius for comedy, the courts often supply amusing epi sodes. Lately a man was brought be fore a Taiis tribunal for stealing a flute out of the window of a musical In Ftrument dealer and making off with it under his coat. In France the judjfc cross-examines and really prosecutes the accused person, and the judge ask ed this man: "What is your occupation?" '"Flute," answered the man. in a tear ful tone. "What do you say?" "I say flute, sir -the little Ante." The prisoner sila d deeply, and khi voice all through the examination was full of sorrow. "You are a musician, then. You are here charged with theft." "Oh. your honor, have pity on a poor man encumbered with a fondly est cumhered with three children, sir!" "It is true that you have three chil dren, l.ut you abandoned them Ave years ago.1 "That was because I was so soft hearted, your honor; I could not bear to see them suä er." "However that may be. on July 17 last you took a flute from the window of a dealer on the Hue M. Denis and made off with it under your coat." "It wns a very line Hut", sir- almost a flageolet." "What made yon take it?" "I desire to earn my living, sir. by playing it. I took a prize once, sir, nt the Conservatory for playing the flute. And if I had a flute now I might be a celebrity at this moment I might be earning my three francs a nmht." "Indeed:' said the Judge. "IiaililT, bringe in the flute which was found in this man's possession." The flute was brought in and placed in the prisoner's hands. lie began to weep softly. "Then you are going to to give it to me?" he blubbered. "You are jrohi;; to have pity on a poor man?" "We are simply going to hear you play." said the court. "Me -play?" Certainly. A prize-winner at the Conservatory ought to be willing to give us a specimen of his skill." KBefore all the court? Why. I don't like to piny here I'm so embarrassed." "Oh, the court will be indulgent Don't play anything operatic- just give us 'In the Hoonlighf or some simple ditty." "Without an accompaniment, your honor?" Yes." The prisoner ran his finger over the flute uneasily. I can't do it. your lienor. I really ' can't my emotion is too much for me'." The man was sentenced to two months' Imprisonment.

Notwithstanding the competition ol the new menageries of goods, most of the shop windows on the boulevard! ami in the liue de la Pall seem to indi cate that the commerce inside is slil! prosperous. Certain sorts of shops have, it is true, entirely, or almost en tu-ely, disappeared, partly from the general change of ways of life, partlj from the absorption of their business by burger traders. For instance. I be lieve I am correct in saying that there is not ttOW one single glove Shof) le'l in Paris (I mean a shop iu which gtovCI atone are kept, as used to be the case in former times).
