MRS. JOSEPH CHOATE.
Wife of (he American Ambanmnrior to Great Britain la a Moat Ad \ mlrable Woman. If Joseph Hodges Choate, ambassa dor from the United States to Eng land, is a man fitted for his position, Mrs. Joseph Choate is a woman quite capable of holding her own as the wife of one of the proudest diplomats living. The post of ambassador to the court of St. James is a purely honor ary one, for its emolument is wholly inadequate to meet the demands that are made upon it. At the same time it is one of such pride that states men and warriors have long consid ered it the plum of presidential ap pointments. A poor man is never appointed to such a post. First, the poor man would never have the money to enter tain sufficiently; second, he would hardly have had the necessary train ing; third, the wife of a poor man would not have received a sufficient amount of polite education to enable her to fill the position well. Mrs. Joseph Choate began life as a rich girl. She was well educated in the schools of GO years ago and re ceived a training according to the standards of those days. When she married Mr. Choate in 1SG1 it was said in Boston that she could pour tea better than any other young mat ron at the hub. Mrs. Choate was once a great beau ty. But 41 years of married life or of life spent in the wide world, in one country and in another, will take away one’s actual prettiness, though the years will bring something else just as admirable and that is what they have brought to Mrs. Choate. She shows refinement of the lady of society, the repose of the woman of the world, the finesse of the dip lomat and the high polish which comes of rubbing against the best people of all countries. Mrs. Choate’s entertainments in London are as famous as the speeches of the ambassador. She gave a series of dinners last winter, at which the table decorations were the finest ever seen on a diplomat’s table, Kea soning that the feast must be partly of the eyes, she ordered her lioris; to trim the table with all the flowers that were of the season and to use them with a lavish hand. An annual event of much interest in the ambassador’s family is that of the celebration of his birthday. Then a grand dinner is ordered and Mrs. Choate dresses in a tine new gown which is made in Paris for the event. Although still a young man in ap pearance, or at least briskly young, Mr. Choate will soon be 71 years old, and when in January the birthday fete takes place Mrs. Choate will need to burn 71 candles in honor of the event. Throughout her husband’s career Mrs. Choate has been a power, not from the standpoint of assisting him m his public work, but diplomatically and through her family connections. Like Mrs. Chauncey M. Depew, she plaj's the highbred lady’s part and does it so extremely well that her husband is much assisted by her thor ough work. Mrs. Choate is the owner of very fine emeralds, which are Mr. Choate’s favorite stones. She obtained them while on a trip to the orient and she wears them on important diplomatic occasions. Mrs. Choate has done a great deal for Americans in London. To the house of the ambassador go all Americans in distress, and to the am bassador’s wife are turned over all cases of women requiring aid. Mrs. Choate has restored runaway girls to their American homes. She has supplied money to musical students out of funds, she has extended her hand, and even her roof, to penni less artists, and she has put hundreds in communication with their friends at home. Mrs. Choate and the ambassador have always been singularly devoted and rarely is one seen in public with ' out the other. They travel together, and, besides affording a noteworthy example of diplomatic excellence, they furnish one of extreme matri monial devotion.—London Letter in Chicago Chronicle. Himtit for Nervous Women. A woman with a nervous tempera ment ought to be in the open air as much as possible. When she be comes conscious of her nerves she should drop everything and get into the air and sunshine among new peo ple, if possible. Otherwise, she wall have to suffer, unless she can find re lief in a short trip. Stretching one’s body upon a comfortable couch, clos ing the eyes and losing the senses for even ten minutes gives a decided feel ing of freshness and it is a pity that women do not realize it. Somehow a woman who aims at health seems to regard lounging as a sign of weak ness, when it is merely a luxury, or comfort, like bathing. Men are less sensitive and Bhow a willingness to recline at the first opportunity, and thereby show their sense. \ ! A FEW USEFUL HINTS. Of Particular Value to Women Who Like to Ureai Becomingly on a Small income. The rich girl is not .always the only girl who is the well-dressed one. The young woman who has to make over, furbish up and remodel her hats and frocks is frequently as modishly attired as her better-off sis ters. Of course, it takes lots of time and skill, as well as cleverness, to make old things look as well as new; but then it pays to curl feathers and clean ribbons when the hat is finished and the gown is donned, and it just looks lovely. For the maid who has to make over and yet wants to look nice here are a few useful hints to help her on her economical ways: Feathers which have become soiled may be washed in hot water and soap. Soft water should be used. Ilinse thoroughly to get the soap out. Brush quills with a nail brush or hair brush. Wash ostrich feathers in the same way, and after rinsing thoroughly pass them through a warm solution of oxalic acid. After this they should lie starched in plain starch. The fibers of ostricli may be curled with a curling iron that is not very hot. Steam tlie fibers before curling. Feathers are also curled with a dull knife, drawing the fibers between the thumb and edge of the knife. Hold lightly and do not curl too tight. Do not curl the entire length, but only at the end of each liber. Light-colored feathers may be washed in benzine without detriment to their curl or color. Wings and fancy feathers are very satisfactorily cleaned by washing in benzine. After drying and pluming with a brush, white wings should be rubbed with magnesia. Some all-silk ribbons and pieces of silk may be washed in soft, water, using a pure white laundry soap. It is well to try small pieces first, for all dyes will not stand the process. Wash gently and rinse thoroughly. Roll in a towel and iron under tissue paper when partially dry. Do not wring the ribbon or silk, but squeeze the water out by running through a wringer with a towel or squeeze be tween the palms of the hands. Rib bons and silks should be ironed while damp. Silks are often satisfactorily cleaned in gasoline or benzine. In using either of these a sufficient quan tity must be used to cover entirely the piece being cleaned, otherwise the result will not be satisfactory. Tt hardly seems necessary to repeat the caution about not using either of these inflammable liquids near fire; but it must be remembered they are very dangerous.—Chicago Tribune. MRS. ANNIE YEAMANS. For Fifty-Six Year* She Has Enter tained Andlenee* In Thl« Coun try and Europe. There is hardly a theater-goer in the United States who does not know Mrs. Annie Yeamans, who has now been on the stage for 56 years. She has played almost every line of char acter in the drama, from a picka ninny, when she was a child, to the MRS. ANNIE YEAMANS. queen in Richard HI. in her maturer years. She is perhaps best known for her impersonations in the llarri gan plays. They were all her own creations, for the author furnished her but a skeleton of her parts, and she developed those remarkable old women who were the features of the shows. Of late years she has been associated with farce-comedy. Her art is literal. She is realism itself. She has the rare gift for a woman of losing all self-consciousness in comic acting. Off the stage Mrs. Yeamans is a genuinely amiable old lady who has given welcome encouragement to scores of young players who have since become famous. Her compan ions say that she is entirely free from the vice of jealousy; and a greater compliment than this no play actor could pay to another. Practice Hefore « Gins*. How few women ever attain the faculty of holding up the skirts on rainy days with ease and daintiness. Although it is the rule to wear flounced underskirts that almost touch . the ground, petticoats that reach only to the top of high boots have hitherto been the rule; and on wet days these are still reverted to. When out walking, the clever woman* arranges her skirt,, and then, with one hand, or perhaps two. she light ly lifts it so that it falls evenly all round. This is where the knack comes in. To hold up a skirt on one side and let it sweep the ground on the other, is very natural, but, it is not good taste, and when it falls evenly all round, and the frills of the petti coat are almost, if not quite, visible, the effect is dainty in the extreme. Tomato Stuffed with Rice. Tomatoes stuffed with rice make a particularly “happy” combination with pork chops. Select smooth, round fruit and cut out of the stem end a piece about the size of a dollar. With a spoon scoop out the inside, tak ing care not to go too deep, and fill the cavity with the following force meat: One-half cupful boiled rice, one-half cupful cold chicken or veal chopped very fine, a tablespoonful of minced onic i, browned in a teaspoon ful of butter and a little parsley. INVENTION MADE A FORTUNE. Simple Cnke-llnklncc Pan Contrived by a Country Woman Proved a Mine of Wenlth. Small and seemingly 'unimportant contrivances are frequently the means of starting their inventors on the high road to fame or fortune. There are a few clever women who have wooed and won affluence by the exercise of their talent for in genuity in little matters. One of these quiet little women has within the past six years made a fortune from selling cake, says the Chicago Chronicle. Of course, it is homemade cake, and, furthermore, the baker clings to certain varieties in the preparation of which she is particu larly skilled. She is a country-bred woman and lived in a little village in New York state until seven or eight years ago. She was known as a good cook in the district where it is con sidered almost a disgrace for a house wife not to be a good cook. Her spe cialty was cake, and as she is en dowed with more than average allot ment of intelligence ?nd not a little talent of invention, she devised a cake tin that was an improvement ovef anything that had been pro duced before in the vicinity. She was shrewd enough to patent her in vention, then she set about getting her patent before the public. Her husband came to her assist ance here and a trial was made with the village folk. The new cake tin took, men tne large towns in me vicinity were tried, with an encour aging degree of spceess, and the coun ty fairs gave another opening. After a year or so the woman was advised to go to New York, und luckily se cured a good opening. She has been there ever since, just making and selling cakes and exploiting that pat ented tin. 'She employes several assistants, her husband finds it profitable to give all his time to man aging the details of the business and trade is constantly increasing. If anyone doubts that there is a de mand for homemade cake in a large city a visit to the little shop of this cakemaker will convince him or her to the contrary. Half a dozen varie ties comprise the output and the cakes are not cheap by any means. They are good and they are in de mand, and it is not unusual during the middle of the day to find a dou ble row of women around the coun ter in the little shop waiting to give orders. It is a wise woman who knows wherein her talents lie these days, and in most cases she reaps a profit from the understanding of her talents and her limitations. ANIMAL THERAPY FOR AGED. niNetmen Heretofore Considered Hoiic-Iphko, Needinje Cell Stimula tion, Cured by Animal l’roducta. Many articles have^appeared in the medical journals and the press on the efficacy of animal product in appar ently hopeless chronic conditions Many physicians have come from all parts of the country to witness the ex periments that have been going on for the past few months at the laboratory in Chicago. That animal product has a tendency to eliminate excess salts ol calcium, sodium, etc., from the bones of old people has been demonstrated without anyr question of doubt, states the Chronicle of that city. The experi ments have been made on old animals A dog that was claimed to be 1G years of age was chosen fcr one of the sub jects to work upon. A piece of femur was resected, the bone showed all the effects of old age, the dog was treated with hypodermic injections of animal product for 36 days. After that time another piece of bone was resected, and to the gratification and satisfac tion of the number of the physicians who watched the experiments all the salts of calcium and sodium were elim inated, while the blood vessels and bone cells increased largely in num ber. It,has also been demonstrated that animal product Increases the richness of the blood in its red cells and haemoglobin. It also increases the activity and function cf the white blood cells, which are the scavengers of the body and the protectors as well. It causes an increased elimination of the waste products of the body, such as diseased cells, foreign accumula tions and poisonous excretions, uric acid, lithic acid, acetic acid and other products of imperfect digestion. Animal product has been before the scientific medical world about five years and within that time thousands have taken the treatment and have been restored to their normal condi tions. The diseases which yield to ani mal product are few and of the chron ic type, such as locomotor ataxia, nerroui and mental disturbances and It is especially indicated in diseases incident to old age. It is a strong in vigorant and revivifier, and even in cases where patients were over 70 years of age has restored all the physi ological conditions of youth, bringing back, sometimes in increased force, the vigor and ambitions of a man of 30 or less.

In their first encounter with the Philistines, the Israelites took the ark of God into battle, thinking thereby to make victory sure. In doing this they showed that they believed in the ark more than in the Lord. By their defeatthey learned that a false faith is no protection. When they again faced their foes, the Israelites besought ■Samuel to pray for them. What God can do for His people in emergencies is shown by His answer to Samuel's prayer. There was constant war between the Philistines and Israel, and the Philistines seem to have been the more powerful, or at least the better organized. Israel’s attempt to devel op a strong, independent national life without a king was a failure. The taking of the ark to the battle field shows that it had come to be re garded superstitiously by the people. They thought the ark would in some magic way insure victory. Images and charms of all sorts have often been carried into battle in this way. Peo ple who depend on “good-luck” charms, or anything besides their own best efforts and the blessing of God, are doomed to failure as surely as were the Hebrews. Eli’s tragic end shows us that moral weakness is as terrible in its consequences as more willful and aggressive wickedness. Eli was criminally weak. The Philistine.1*, too. regarded the ark with a suspicions dread. Strange things happened when they put it in one of their shrine," with Tlagon. and a terrible disease broke out in the city. What could explain it hut the enmity of the God of the ark? No one want ed it, and so they sent it from one placej toj another. Disease seemed to follow it everywhere. In the house of Aminadab, who was probably a Levite, the ark was rev erently kept for 20 years. There were no sacrifices or other religious services, so far a* we know. The sanc tuary at Shiloh had lost prestige with the removal of the ark and the death of the priests, and it never regained it. What Samuel was doing during these years we do not know. In verses .3, 4, we find him leading a movement for reform. The Philistines seemed to have feared trouble from the gather ing of Israel at Mizpeh, and went up to disperse them; but through Samuel Israel called upon Jehovah, and He sent a terrific thunderstorm upon the enemy, which so demoralized them that Israel won an easy victory. Verse 13 must be taken in connection with 9:15. 16; 13:3, 19, which modifv the in terpretation of it. There were three Philistine invasions' of the land after this time, and all during the life of Samuel. PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS. “The supplication of a righteous man availeth much in its working.”— Jas-. 5:16. “More things are wrought by prayer than this, world dreams of.”—Tenny son. » “Prayer moves the Hand that moves the world.”—John Ailcman Wallace. “Little faith will get very great mercies, but great faith still greater.” —Rev. Charles' Spurgeon. In a Nutshell. Love is the evidence of God’s life in uk. God’s work must be done in God’s way. The poor in goods are often rich in grace. ; The most glorious task is made up of insignificant trifles. Religion is to the moral what grav itation is to the natural. Our losses and our gains furnish the true estimate of life. A man may go through life with the multitude, but he must go through death alone.—Ram’s Horn. ODDS AND ENDS.
