BAKED APPLE DUMPLINGS.
Peel and core as many apples
As your appetite may wish—
Six or eight—perhaps a dozen—
That would be a generous, dish.
Wake a dough like cracker biscuit.
Roll it thin—with skill and care;
Place an apple lightly on it—
Take your knife and cut it square—
Large enough to fold your fruit in
Then within the vacant place
Of the core, a bit of butter,
Cinnamon and. sugar place.
Draw your square up well together,
Pinch it gently on the top,
Bo your dough will be protected,
Lest the cooking juices pop.
When your apples are all covered.
Take a fork and prick them through,
’Twill prove better in the baking—
Half a dozen times will do.
Lake them slowly, and, w hile cooking,
Take of sugar just a cup.
And a modest lump of butter—
And with light hand cream them up,
Adding extract and your hard sauce
\Set on ice to harden more;
ife your apples from the oven,
And your labors will be o'er.
Serve them hot—the sauce adds flavor,
And each dumpling, firm and. brow n,
Is a practical achievement—
Adds a jewel to your crown.

Some book covers of brown linen
which I made for my Emerson’s es
says and poems, outlining-the pansy
designs in ink. have been much ad
mired by friends. The pansy design
for the works of “America’s greatest
thinker” is peculiarly appropriate.
The linen is cut according to the
working design and the size of the
book. The edges should be turned
over and neatly overhanded down at
the corners. One who is skillful with
the brush may paint the pansies.
Designs suitable for other books will

Lemons in tile Toilet.
Lemons are a necessary adjunct to
every woman’s toilet; besides their
liealtlif ulnesss, which is not to be ques

teaspoonful of lemon juice in a cupftil
of warm water will remove all stains
from the hands and will make the
nails soft and pliable, rendering them
easy to polish.
In Case of Frost Ilite.
In cases of frost bite no warm air,
warm water or fire should be permit

GENUINE EGG SHAMPOO.
A I* orniiila for tlnkina n Preparation
That In Ab«oIutrl)- Reliable and
Sure to Please.
Many of the compounds called egg
shampoos contain no eggs. They are
generally a stiff soap paste, made up
in substantially this fashion: Take
four ounces of transparent soap, half
an ounce of carbonate of potash, six
ounces of water and two of glycerine.
The soap should be coarsely powdered
and mixed with water in which the
carbonate of potash has already been
dissolved. Heating over a lire hastens
the melting of the soap. The glycer
ine should be mixed in last of all. II
the composition is too firm on cooling,
a little water may be addetf. A sam
ple may be tested for this purpose
before the whole batch has cooled.
Perfume may be introduced, if it be
wanted.
For a genuine egg shampoo the fol
lowing formula is recommended by
the New York Tribune:
Three fresh eggs, half an ounce of
spirit of soap. 1(50 grains of carbonate
of potash. 150 minims of ammonia wa
ter. two drops of rose oil, the same
amount of bergamot oil, one drop oi
geranium oil, one of oil of bittei
almonds, and 27 ounces of rosewater.
The eggs should be w ell whipped and
mixed with the rosewater. The am
monia water, carbonate of potash and
spirit of soap having first been com
bined, they may be added to the othei
fluid. The whole having been wel
surreu, rue periumes may be added
The volume of the latter will be sc
small that another vigorous stirring
is essential to their thorough incor
poration.

When people with small means art

WRITE YOUR OPINION.
A Xew Winter Evening (iamp for
CirlH Which tllunl,. IIiiaIicIm of
fun, If Properly Conducted.
New games are things that every
boy and girl is looking for. and not
only games that you have never played
yourself, but games that not many
other people have played,either. Here
is one that ought to suit a good many
of you. It is played something the
way “consequences” is played—that
is, with paper and pencil. Each per
son is given a piece of paper and a
pencil, and is told to write her opinion
of somebody; one whom every one
who is playing the game knows, if
possible. This opinion need not be
elaborate or long. You need only
say: “The person 1 am telling my
opinion of is”—and then just put
down a few adjectives, such as jolly,
pretty, witty, lazy, inventive, and so
i • |
on, making them as long as you please.
You must have at least three descrip
tive adjectives. Do not put either
your name or that of the person you
are writing about on the paper, but
when you have finished fold your pa
per so that what you have written
cannot be seen, and pass it to your
left-hand neighbor, who in turn passes
hers on. Ou the new paper you have
had passed you, without looking at
what is written, write the name of the
person you think that your right-hand
neighbor would have been most likely
to describe, and then when every one
has done this put all the slips of pa
per in a pile in the center and in turn
each draw one out, saying: “This is
thought to be the opinion of,” and
then read the name on the paper.
Open it and read the opinion. If it
happens' to be the opinion you wrote
put it back without reading aloud and
take another. When you have read
it you have the privilege of making
one guess as to whom the opinion is
really intended for, and if you guess
right the one who wrote it must ac
knowledge it and say whether right
or wrong, and if right pay a forfeit.
Each one reads one of the opinions
and has the privilege of one guess.
After that is over you can redeem the
forfeit.—Prairie Farmer.
Danger for Deey-Sea FUh.
It is dangerous for a fish whose nat
ural home is at great depths to get
out of its stratum. Should it get out
of its depth there would be a sudden
upward suction and the fish would be
drawn to the surface and explode.
The interior pressure of the body
counteracts the outward pressure un
der normal conditions, and when the
latter is removed there is trouble.

PINKY’S PREFERENCE.
The Story of a Pet Pomnin Which
liefiuicil to Stay In the Wooda
When Tnk e*n There.
Most wild animals stoutly reinstall
of our well-intentioned effort* to
bring them tip in door-yard ways, and
take to the woods again with the lirst
opportunity. I have tamed lhany
squirrels, but, sooner or later, every
one of them has escaped to the wilds.
1 have never known but one wild ani
mal that wanted to be domesticated,
that refused to stay in the woods
when taken there; and this was a
little possum, named, from the color
of his long nose, "Pinky.”
He was one of a family of nine
that 1 c*ught, several springs ago,
and carried home. In the course of a
few weeks his brothers and sisters
were adopted by admiring friends;
but Pinky, because lie was the "runt,”
and looked very sorry and forlorn,
was not chosen. He was left with
me. I kept him, for his mother was
dead, and fed him on milk until he
caught up to the size of the biggest
mother-fed possum of his age in llie
woods. Then I took him down to the
old stump in the brier-patcli where
he was born, and left him to shift,
for himself.
Being thrown into a brier-patch
was exactly what tickled “Br’er Bab
THE stump in the brier patch.
bit” half to death, and anyone would
have supposed that being put gently
down in his home brier-patch would
have tickled this little possum still
more. Not lie! 1 went home and for
got him. But the next morning,
when breakfast was preparing, wliat
should we see but Pinky, curled up
in the feather cushion of the kitchen
settee, fast asleep.
He had found his way back during
the night, had climbed in through the
trough of the pump-box, and had
gone to sleep like the rest of the
family. He gaped and smiled and
looked about him when awakened, al
together at home, but really sur
prised that morning had come so
soon.
He took his saucer of milk under
the stove as if nothing had happened.
We had had a good many possums,
crows, lizards, and the like, so, in
spite of this winsome show of con
fidence and affection, Pinky was
borne away once more to the briers.
He did not creep in by the pump-box
trough that night. Nothing was seen
of him, and he passed quickly out of
our minds. Two or three days after
this I was crossing the back yard,
and stopped to pick up a big cala
bash-gourd that had been on the
woodpile. I had cut a round hole,
somewhat larger than a silver dol
lar, in the gourd, intending to fasten
it up for the bluebirds to nest in.
It ought to have been as light as so
much air, almost, but instead it was
heavy—the children had filled it with
sand, no doubt. 1 turned it over and
peeked into the hole, and lo! there
was Pinky.
How he ever managed to squeeze
through that opening 1 don’t know.,
but there he was, sleeping away as
soundly as ever.
But that’s just like him—always a
puzzle. He is most stupidly wise or
most wisely stupid.
And what became of him then? Mv
heart smites me whenever I think of
it. I took him back again to the
woods the third time, and again he
returned, but blundered into a neigh
bor’s yard, and—and a little later he

Athlete Ficht« Huge Lion.
Archie 15. Lueder, a well-known ath
lete of the class of ’99 at Cornell, and
who is now stationed in equatorial
Africa near St. Joro. recently had a
hand-to-hand battle with a huge Af
rican lion, in which some of the things
Lueder learned on the Cornell gridiron
came into play. Lueder and a man
named Smith were out surveying, when
unexpectedly a big lion sprang from
the jungle. The rifles which they car
ried were of small caliber and the lion
paid no heed to the shots fired at him.
Finally, the beast sprangupon Lueder,
who thrust the muzzle of the rifle in
the lion’s mouth, while his companion
was able to dispatch the lion by shoot
ing the animal through the heart.
Lueder was terribly lacerated by the
lion’s claws and has just gathered
strength to write his brother, C. -A.
Lueder, now also a Cornell football
player.
I.ampa That Talk or Sing.
Electric lamps can not only be made
to talk, but also to sing. An ordinary
arc light can be made to produce
sound by placing the arc in the circuit
of a telephone instead of the ordinary
receiver or instead of the ordinary
transmitter. In either of these posi
tions it will pronounce words, which
can be heard distinctly at a consider
able distance. It naturally follows,
also, that the electric arc can be util
ized as the receiver and aiso as the
transmitter of the telephone.
Remarkable Plant Growth.
Some tropical plants can really be
seen to grow. An eminent scientist,
who has been making measurements
in the botanical gardens at Buit.en
zorg, Java, records a growth in a
bamboo of 17 inches in a single day.
Another bamboo wr* observed to add
eight inches to its height daily for
58 days, while two others grew four
inches steadity for 60 days.
CHEAP FODDER STORAGE.
An Ideu Tlin< Should Be Tented by
All Farmer* Who Have n Ills
Supply of Stover.
Stover requires comparatively tight
storage room to keep it in until want
ed for feed. Stacked in a windy coun
try before it can settle or become com
pact it is liable to become scattered to
the four winds. A very satisfactory
method, according to a writer in Ohio
Farmer, is to build up a rail pen, put
ting in a board floor, and run the stuff
into it, packing down as close as possi
ble. When tilled, cover over with
matched roof boards, a tarpaulin,
STOVER CRIB AND SELF-FEEDER.
slough grass or anything that will
turn the rain. As the material packs
very close of itself and is very imper
vious to rain, it will keep well. An
other method described and illus
trated by the same writer combines
cheapness with the “self-feeder” idea.
The crib is made of the slat fencing or
cribbing as used by the farmers in the
west when their crops are larger than
their crib room. The slatting is made
usually in five and six-foot widths and
two ties put up, making the combined
height from ten to 12 feet. A floor of
boards is put in and the bottom tier
of slatting fastened to the supporting
posts five or six inches from the floor
boards, which should project two or
three feet outside the slatting. The
cattle will pick up clean all the feed
they will pul! out through the space
between the boards and slatting.
When no more can be reached by the
cattle, the space around the bottom
can be tilled by tile attendant of the
stock with an iron rod sharpt tied and
bent into a hook at the end.
CHANGE IN MILKERS.
It Shonlil lie Avoided. II l*o*»lt»le. a*
It AtterU t lie t ow '• Tem |»er a n*l
Milk Yield.
There is a great difference in the ef
fect that a change of milkers will have
upon different cows. Some cows will
submit perfectly to milking by almost
every one who approaches them, but
no cow will milk equally well with all
persons. Some cows will dislike, or
fear, or battle nervously with three
out of five persons who try to milk
them. They w ill often refuse to yield
their milk To any other than the milk
er to whom they are accustomed.
Owners of dairies cannot well over
look this preference of the cows for
certain milkers. It is a preference
that is based on nerves, and neither
tlie cow nor the milker can control it.
The cow in perfect nerve accord with
the attendant will show her feelings
by her actions. She will lay her head
against the one whom she likes. When
one whom she does not like approaches
her, she shows her dislike by stand
ing perfectly still, or by turning away
her head, or by moving away.
The Hollanders and the Jersey isl
anders, those masters of dairying, un
derstand this characteristic of their
cows, and they make much of their
knowledge. They accustom their mag
nificent cows to personal touch, to the
human presence, to the voice, to pet
ting and coddling and caressing. The
results are seen in the perfect animals
they produce, the highest types of
quality and capacity known in the
dairy world.
The dairyman should discover the
likes and dislikes of his cows as early
in their careers as possible. The milk
and butter fat they will produce will
depend largely upon the milkers he
sends to draw their milk. The point
is that the cow is a nerve machine.
She can do her best work only when
her nerves are in their normal condi
tion. The milker, whose presence or
touch or voice thrbws her into agita
tion, or fear, or anger, will never be
able to induce her to produce milk in
the largest quantity or of the ' best
quality. Therefore the high-class cow
must have a milker whom she likes, or
she will fall short of her possibilities.
—ITairie Farmer.
Sugar lire* Palp for Cowl.
A publication of the department of
agriculture says: “Prof. Thomas
Shaw expresses his belief that sugar
beet pulp can be fed more advan
tageously to cattle and sheep that are
being fattened than to dairy cows.
The New York Cornell experiment sta
tion, however, found that this material
gave good results with milk cows, the
dry matter (solids) in it being about
equal in value to that in corn silage.
German experiments with beet pulp
for cows have also given good results,
the flow of milk being maintained in
a satisfactory manner. Some Danish
experiments have shown that, as com
pared with mangels, the butter pro
duced on sugar beet pulp was about
equal in quality and kept fully as well.
Where large quantities of the pulp were
fed the cream required to be churned
a few minutes longer.”
Tratliuony for Spraying.
At a horticultural meeting an Illi
nois fruit grower said: I had a little
orchard of 60 trees that were ten
years old, and we never had secured
a plum from that orchard. Every
plum rotted last year, and this year
we sprayed three times with the Bor
deaux mixture and Paris green, and
the trees that we did not spray the
plums all rotted, just the same as
they had before; in fact, we got so
disgusted with them that we cut out
about eight or ten trees to experi
ment on, and now we wish we h^l
them back again.

to Dr. Hartman as the result:

THE season of catching cold is upon
us. The cough and the sneeze
* anti tb# nasal twang are to be
heard on every baud The origin of
chronic catarrh, the most common and
dreadful of diseases, is a cold.
This is the way the chronic catarrh
generally begins. A person catches
cold, which hangs on longer than usual.
The cold generally starts in the head j
and throat. Theu follows sensitive
ness of the air passage* which incline j
one to catch cola very easily. At last
the person has a cold all the while
seemingly, more or less discharge from '
the nose, hawking, spitting, frequent I
clearing of the throat, nostrils stopped j
up. full feeling in the head, and sore,
inflamed throat.
The best time to treat catarrh isatthe
very beginning. A bottle of I’eruna prop
erly used, never fails to cure a common
cold, thus preventing chronic catarrh.
While many people have been cured
of chrouie catarrh by a single bottle of
IVruna. yet. a* a rule, when the catarrh

one bottle i* necessary to complete a
cure. IVruna has cured cases innumer
able of catarrh of twenty years'stand
ing. It is the best, if not the only inter
nal remedy for chronic catarrh in ex
istence.
Hut prevention is far better than cure.
Every person subject to catching cold
should take Peruna at once at the
slightest symptom of cold or sore throat
at this season of the year and thus pre
vent what is almost certain to end in
chronic catarrh.
