A King's Fear of Woman's Beauty.
Charles XII. of Sweden feared only
one power in the the power of
beauty; only a handsome woman could
boast of making him quail—she put
him to flight. He said: "So many
heroes have succumbed to the attrac
tions of a beautiful face! Did not
Alexander burn a town to please a
ridiculous courtesan? I want my life
to be free from such weakness; his
tory must not find such a stain upon
it." He was told one day that a young
girl had come to sue for justice on be
half of a blind octogenarian father
maltreated by soldiers. The first in
clination of the king, a strict disciplin
arian, was to rush straight to the
plaintiff, to hear the details of *hc
misdemeanor for himself, but suddenly
stopping, lie asked, "Is she good-look
ing?" And being assured that she was
both very young and unusually lovely,
he sent word that she must wear a
veil, otherwise he would not listen to
Is Able to Help Sick "Women
When Hoe tors Fail,
How gladly would men fly to wo
man's aid did they but understand a
woman's feelings, trials, sensibilities,
and peculiar organic disturbances.
Those things are known only to
women, and the aid a man would give
is not at his command.
To treat a case properly it is neces
sary to know all about it, and full
information, many times, cannot be
given by a woman to her family pliy-
sician. She cannot bring herself to
tell everything, and the physician is
at a constant disadvantage. This is
why, for the past twenty-five years,
thousands of women havo been con
fiding their troubles to Mrs. Pinkham,
and whoso advice has brought happi
ness and health to countless women in
the United States.
Mrs. Chappell, of Grant Park, 111.,
whose portrait we publish, advises all ]
suffering women to seek Mrs. Pink- j |
ham's advice and use Lydia E. Pink- j ]
ham's Vegetable Compound, as they
cured her of inflammation of the ovaries
and womb ; she, therefore, speaks from
knowledge, and her experience ought
to give others confidence. Mrs. Pink
ham's address is Lynn, Mass., and her i
advice is absolutely free.
Compressed Air for Canal Locks.
On the Erie canal at Lockport, N. Y.,
a pneumatic balance lock is being sub
stituted for a flight of old-fashioned ;
stone locks, says the Youth's Compan- !
ion. The new lock consists of two steel
chambers, one for ascending and the
other for descending boats. Each
chamber is divided into two parts, an <
upper one containing water to receive
the boats and a lower one containing
compressed air on which the upper
chamber floats. When a boat has been ]
run into the upper chamber it is either i
lowered or raised, as may be desired,
by filling or exhausting the air chamber
beneath it. 1

English Races Load in Politics.
If wc except the provinces of the
Netherlands, the Swiss cantons and
such tiny city states as Monaco and San
Marino, which retain their ancient in
stitutions, there is not a nation on
earth, making any pretense to freedom
and civilization, which had not a con
stitution in great measure copied, within
the present century, cither from* Eng
land or from the United States. Thus,
whether willingly or not, docs the civil

Why the Sewing Woman Fays Ten Centi
a Week.
"I was behindhand with my rent
last fall," Haiil the sewing woman,
"and I caught an awful cold because
I couldn't afford to buy n -w overshoes;
but I always managed to have the in
surance agent's money ready for Idm.
when he called. You may think 10
cents a week is a small sum to bother
about, hut when the season is over In
my place u dime looks as big as a half
dollar does when I am earning my $lO
a week. Why do I pay It you ask?
Well, 1 expect to get sick and die one
of days, and then, if there wasn't
the hundred dollars insurance money,
how could I count on having a decent
funeral? I know there are those who
say that they never trouble their heads
about such matters, but that Is no way
for people tt> talk who have got any
self-respect, though it tuny do well
enough for drinking men and others
that Potter's Field Is too good for.
And 1 don't wlint to be caught as a
friend of mine was last year. She is
one of the happy-go-lucky, hnnd-to
mouth sort of bodies who never lay
up anything for n rainy day. She
wouldn't look ut an Insurance man.
Though that girl's mother was given
up by the doctors for months before
she died, there was only $3 in the
house when the undertaker's meu
came in-for the body.
"Now, how much do you suppose
that poor woman went in debt for the
funeral? Fifteen dollars might be
what the city has to pay for burying
a pauper, hut It wouldn't begin to pay
for anything that might be called a
funeral. The undertaker's hill was
$7. r >, and, everything considered, it was
not an overcharge, although the debt
ain't paid off yet. My friend says she
is in no hurry to pay It, as she wants
to find out first If the law can't compel
her step-father to give up the mouts.
He deserted his wife two years ago,
running off with another woman. I
think the person who contracts the
debt Is the one that has to pay It, but
there are those who seem to think they
know more than I about such matters
From what I have heard of the step
father, I guess he would have been
willing enough to turn his wife's body
over t ) tile city to be buried like a
dog, but I'm thankful to say there
ain't many husbands like him that I
know of, and that is the reason why
so many widowers are married to their
second wives before they get through
paying for their first wives' funerals."

Absorb Impuril(•.
No compound of gelatine or milk
Bhould be allowed to remain un
covered, as both absorb impurities
from the air. A eut onion is a gen
uine scavenger in the same respect,
and should never be used in cooking,
nor should it be eaten, after it lias
been cut for any length of time. If
only half of a large onion has been
used the other half can be safely re
served for another occasion by wrap

Hintfi for Tea Makem.
The properties of tea depend chiefly
upon the presence of a volatile oil that
nets as n powerful stimulant The
fact that this oil Is volatile mid easily
lost Is the reason why tea should
never boil or remain on the leaves
after they are steeped, tfroen and
black tea are made from the same
plant, the only difference lying in the
ways of curing, the green tea being
made by much the quicker process.
For a strong cup of tea a tenspoon
ful to a cup of water Is the usunl
proportion, while one teaspoonful to
a pint of boiling water makes a weak
cup. Very hard water should be
boiled thoroughly for Ave or 10 min
utes before it is used, so that the car
bonate of llnte may be separated from
the water, or on the other hand, It
should be steeped four minutes longer
boiling point, theu used before the
separation eommeneed. Green tea
should he steeped foud minutes longer
than either Oolong or English break
fast tea.
A Suggestion for the Cook.
Another point which the cook should
know is the difference between sim
mering and boiling. This Is readily
tested with a cook's thermometer,
when boiling point will he found at
213 degrees, simmering only demand
ing ISO degrees. Roughly speaking.
It Is easy to see the difference be
tween the two. When a liquid boils
at full pitch Its surface will be close
ly covered with bubbles, and the
whole surface, will, so to speak, rock
and swell with the heat, In which con
dition it very quickly boils over. When
it simmers, however, the surface of
'the liquid will simply ripple like a
pond into which a stone has been
thrown, the water keeping all the
time at a gentle shiver. This rip
pling is called by French cooks the
sourire or smile of the water. If you
allow meat or anything that the cook
ery books say should he simmered to
boil up aud bubble, the substance In
question will harden and become
stringy, giving out all Its goodness to
the liquid In which it is cooked, said
liquid beiug only too frequently
thrown away.via the sink. But if in
your zeal to keep the dish at simmer
ing point you keep It at the side of the
stove, where the liquid never reaches
"smiling" point, the substance In
question may heat, but It will only
steep, not cook.
