Cashmcro shawls aro prcc'ous to overy
gentlewoman's heart, nnd belong to tho
samo category as diamonds. Tlio lovo
for these products of tho Orient looms Is
scarcely a century old. Tho shawls loft
by Tippoo Sahib's embassadors in 1787
were regarded as curiosities by tho mag
nates to whom thoy were presented, and
were used as carpets or out up for
dross'ng gowns. It is said that Mmo.
Gaudin, a lady of Greek parcntago and
r celebrated beauty, woro tho first shawl
in Par.s. Not until after Napoleon's
Egyptian expedition did tlio Cashmere
shawl become fashionable. The
Empress Josephine's lovo of theso
superb webs of Oriental beauty is
as well known in her passion
for llowcrs. Tlio wealth acquired
by tlio great men under tho first omnire
j hero was lavishly spent by their wivo--for
India shawls. It was' a matter of
little imporlnneo whether tho shawl-,
woro clean or soiled. It may havo done
duty as tho robo of somo pr'ost high in
ollico or as the turban of ono of tho Mo
gul's soldiers. If it suited tlio tasto of
the grando daino it was purchased,
cleaned and worn. Tho shawls arc
woven from tho wool of the Thibet goat,
and for thoso of tho highest grndo only
tho finest of this lino wool is used, one
goat yielding but half a pound of this
lirst quality wool at its annual shear
ing. Tho shawls aro all made upon
hand looms, and sometimes thirty or
forty men aro employed for a year and
a half, or ovon two yoars, upon a single
shawl. The gold and silver thread usoi
in tho embroidery of tlio shawls is made
at Boorhampoori a Dcccan city. Apiece
of puro ore is beaten into a cylinder tho
sl.o of a thick reed, and is again beaten
out until it will bass through an oriileo
tho eighth of nn inch in dinmctur.
This wire is then wound upon several
icols. wh'ch work upon pivots, tlio ond
of the thread boing passed through
still liner holos and then fastened to a
larger reel, which, wlion sot in rapid
motion, attenuates tho thread still
further. Tho throad is then flattened
upon a stool anvil, highly polished by a
skilled workman. A silk thread is thon
covered with this fino wire. It is said
that if a lump of silver bo gilt boforo tt
is put through any process it will retain
tho gilding through all tho severe ham
mering, winding and drawing to wh ch
it is afterward subjocted. nnd cmorgo a
golden thread that will never tarnish.

When tho straw Is on, mark your

look very small when finished. Turn

built in tho abovc-describod mnnner
keeps carrots when tho thermometer is

should advise covering all over with

TRADING IN PRIVILEGES.

A law against dealing in privileges in

Hoard of Trade have recently d'scoverod
that it Is In cxlstonce and appear to bo
anxious that the law be observed. Thoy

that 11 sulllclent number havo soon tho

of tho markets for wheat nml corn, nnd
by tills means places outsiders at u dis
advantage, tlio existence of which thoy
iinvo not boon slow to learn. Tito
thing Is simply a species of glgantlo

cause tho wuolo transaction is illegal in
tho oyo of tho hoard ns well as under
tho State enactment against it, and it
lacks even tho codo of honor which
compels payment of losses Incurred on

Tlio business practices of tho board

of tlio produeo business of tlio West,

Ilotr Gilbert Stunrt Succt-cileil In Exciting
the Snlf-Conlrolotl l'reditt-nt.
Washington was human, though his
tory has so Idealized him that ho seems
but "little lower than the nngols." Tie
had a quick temper, which ho gonorally
controled; but occasionally it broke
loose, nnd then thoro was a collision.
Ono of these collisions was witnessed
by Gilbert Stuart, while ho was painting
Washington's portrait. -Ono morning,
ns tho artist was ascending tho stop3 of
tho President's house, ho looked through
the open strcol door and tho inner door
into tho parlor. Washington had a man
by tlio collar, and was thrusting him
violently across tho room. Mr. Muart,
not wishing to enter tho houso then,
passed on, After going ashortdistaneo
ho returned and found Washington sit
ting in a chair, quietlv awaiting him.
'-Mr. Stuart," said tlio President, oftor
tlio morning salutation, "wlion you
went away yesterday you turned tho
fuco of the picture to "tho wall, ami gavo
directions that it should remain in that
position, to provont it receiving nny in

morning tho p'cturo's faoj was turned
outward, us you now so it; tlio doors
wero open, and hero vus a fellow rais

not but the picture is ruined."
Llttlo harm was dono. to the picture,
but tho incident gavo a happy thought
to the artist. Ho had tried in vain by
his wonderful powors of conversation
so to excite the solf-controlled President
that h s eye would Hash and his com
posed features bo lighted up.
Knowing that Washington becaiuo ir
ritable wlion kopt waiting live minutes
beyond the appointed hour, ho got
overy thing ready for a sitting and then
left iho room, just boforo tho design a ted

into nn adjoining room ho waited until
ho heard a loud exclamation of im
patience, and tho quick stops that told
ot an angry mood. Then entering, ho
saluted Wash ngton, and seized his
palotto. The sa utntion was coldly re
turned; tho President seated himsolf in
tho chair, his face Unshod with indigna
tion. Tho painter hastened to catch
tho expression. After a fow touches, ho
ccasod pa nt ng, and, witli a smile of
satisfaction, apologized for his want of

A party wall in lnw is tlio wall divid

owner who erccta n wall for his own
buildings, which is capable of icing

not compel such proprietor, wlion ho
shall build next to it, to pay any por

no right to mako any uso of .such wall
without consent of thu owner, and tho

Fruit growers', gardeners and small
farmers find tho bill for fortll zors quite
an Horn of oxponso, much of which
could bo snvod If proper care was used
in composting their mnnuro nnd avail
ing themselves of all tho fertilizing
matter within tholr roach. To properly
compost farmyard manure requires con
siderable labor, but It Is richly repaid.
Every farmer should havo a compost
henp which should bo under shelter,

is that of any man or woman alllietrd with
disease or derangement of tho liver, rosult-
ing 111 PU130UOU9 accumulations 111 1110 uionu,
scrofulous affections, slek-liemlaclies, and
diseases of tho kidneys, lung or heart.
Theso troubles can bo cured only by going
to tlio primary cause, and putting tho liver
in a healthy rendition. To accomplish this
result speedily and effectually nothing has
proved itoclf ho efllcaelous as Br. I'lorco's
"Golden Medical Discovery," which has
nover fulled to do tho work claimed for it,
and never will.
