"Boiler explosions are the terror of the seafaring man," said an old time deep water captain. "Such a thing is bad enough on dry land, but imagine a catastrophe of that kind at sea. In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred It means the absolute wiping out of the craft itself and every soul on board. "The average landsman would be greatly shocked in looking over the maritime records to see how many ves sels disappear each year aiffi leave absolutely no clew to their fate. They run well up to the hundred mark, and such a mystery is not to be explained away by storms. A Chinese typhoon may swoop down like lightning out of a clear sky and tear a ship to pieces, but some floating wreckage is sure to tell the tale. A boiler explosion, on the contrary, will blow a hole as big as a railroad tunnel right through the center of the hull, and the stricken vessel simply goes down like a shot. There is no time to unfasten a boat from the davits or cut loose a spar. "In the opinion of seamen, that is the story of at least 90 per cent of the ships that leave port and are never heard of again. Luckily the modem system of marine boiler inspection is extremely strict and thorough, but it Is impossible to absolutely prevent carelessness and fraud, and often enough, no doubt, the fault lies with the engineer. "There is an old story of a drunken Scotchman who mistook the ther mometer for the steam gage and 'cuss ed out' the stokers because he couldn't get the pressure above 80. That yarn will hardly hold water, but I've seen cases almost as bad. I am glad to say, however, that during the past 10 years there lias been a steady diminution of the number of vessels which 'mys teriously disappear.' That is due, be yond all question, to the increased stringency of boiler inspection and the greater strictness of examinations be fore a license is issued to engineers. Nevertheless there Is still considerable room for improvement in both branches."—New Orleans Times-Demo crat. KaMnell and Ilia Songa. The late Henry Russell, the veteran English composer of "Cheer, Boys, Cheer," and of more than 800 other songs which were popular in their day, had many amusing experiences when he sang his ballads on various occa sions. Once, after rendering "Woodman, Spare That Tree," a gentleman rose in the gallery and asked, "Was the tree spared?" On being answered in the affirmative he, with a sigh of heartfelt relief, exclaimed, "Thank God for that!" After singing the song of "The Dog Carlo," who jumped off an Atlantic liner and saved a child's life, Russell was gravely waited upon by a couple of Yorkshire miners, who begged him for a pup. One of Russell's songs, of which the words were changed in accordance with the altered conditions, is our na tional anthem, "Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean."—Argonaut. Recent experiments show that all classes of foods may bo completely di gested by a preparation called Kodol Dyspepsia Cure, which absolutely digests what you eat. As it is the only combi nation of all the natural digestants ever devised the demand for it lias become enormous.

Bears the The Kind You Have Always Bought THE HOUSEHOLD. Plain Vfrioi "Fancy" Cookery. Lighter Holders Easily Made. The Antique Fornltaro I rase. There has always been a goodly baud of conservatives opposed to what they call faucy cooking. Generally, In common with the untrained domestic servant, they reckon all efforts of the culinary art with which they are unfa miliar as "French cookery," to them the tlnal term of opprobrium. Let us look at the latter in the right light, for, be It known, there are few things more expensive than the so called "plain" cookery. While it may eschew French dishes and Imported delicacies, its stronghold is in roasts, steaks, chops, meat soups and the like. Good steak and chops do not cost as much as sweetbreads and game, but they are far more costly than the many savory dishes that can be prepared by a little attention to the stigmatized "fancy" cookery. If the housekeeper will but turn her attention to the possibilities of cheap cuts of meat, she will be surprised to see how she can reduce her butcher's bills. Well seasoned stews, appetizing pot roasts or braised cuts will often take the place on her table of the plain roast or broiled. In the using of left overs In a palatable fashion the de spised French cookery is invaluable, since it gives the secret of sauces that disguise the warmed up flavor of the meat and make a palatable and attrac tive dish out of what in the old time would have been the everlasting cold roast or the equally long lived hash. Hash ia an excellent thing, but a change to ininces, meat pies, salmis, pates and the like will usually prove acceptable.—Christine Terhune Herrick in Good Housekeeping. Lighter Holders. You can make a very pretty lighter holder from an old tin, over which you have sewed a piece of embroidered ma terial. Glue a nice circle at the out- in side bottom. This can be done by cov ering a card with the same stuff and theu gluing it to the bottom. Line the tin with black glazed paper. The Antique Furniture frame. The taste for antique furniture has spread over the land. Ordinarily fads that begin so violently show an early prospect of decline, but this one sweeps on unabated, and the person who is once seized with it is not likely to get over It. In the first stage of the malady com fort and beauty are not considered. Any old battered mahogany thing is a treasured possession. Chairs with tot tering legs, sideboards with doors that cannot be opened except by arduous efforts, bureaus with drawers that creak and groan and at times distinctly refuse to budge, all are acquired with eager pride. But after the disease has run Its course and the patient is con valescent, she will have learned enough of good English and colonial models to feel a hearty disgust for rickety trash and henceforth will buy only those pieces that have other claims upon regard than mere age. No honest antiquity dealer will sell a reproduction as an antique. There are excellent imitations of old furni ture which are manufactured especial ly for the antiquity trade, and there are dealers who will label them old and And beginners green enough to swallow the bait, but the demand for antique furniture lias been so great for the last few years that only the most ! Inexperienced collector is likely to j make indiscrluiinating blunders.— Washington Star.

Good gravel has so largely come into request that many suburban lands with that valuable substratum are quarried to a considerable depth be fore being sold on building leases. But it is essential to restore a level surface, as even the most speculative builder would hesitate to run up "neat villa residences" in deep holes. The owner frequently gets over this difficulty by allowing urban refuse to be shot into the excavation; in many cases he even exacts a small sum for every load tilted on his ground. The surface being thus leveled, a year or two are allowed for the soil to sink and become compact Occasionally grass is sown to give a natural appearance to the spot. All is now in readiness for the build er, who proceeds to lay the foundation for his "terraces," "avenues" and "gar dens," which he subsequently adver tises as "on gravel soil." So they are, but between their ground floors and the gravel lies a thick stratum of partially decomposed rubbish, teaming with malaria, and not for many years will the deposits cease to give ofT noxious gases. But the tenant, coming from a dif ferent locality, knows nothing of the "making" process to which the plot has been subjected. When, therefore, ill health dogs his family, he puts it down to defective drainage or some other structural deficiency and spends money freely on remedial measures without the least benefit. All this misery might be prevented If It were legally prohibited to build human habi tations on decomposed refuse until the soil had acquired a wholesome char acter.—Loudon Globe. Arrnnglng the Table. Perfectly laundered linen and glisten ing silver, glass and china are the first essentials at any feast, whether costly or simple. A crystal bowl or lily shap ed vase of flowers on an embroidered centerpiece is always pretty. Where there is only one girl the hostess of course sets the dinner table early in the afternoon with all but eatables. At the right of the cover there should be two knives, with the blades toward the plate; a soup spoon between the knives, the butter spreader next and the oyster fork on the extreme right At the left there should be two forks and the nap kin infolding a roll. The tines of the forks and bowls of the spoons should all lie upward; otherwise they mar the cloth. A salt dish, with its tluy spoon, stands In front of each plate. Tea spoons are llitle used at dinners, the vegetables being served on the plates with the meat. Forks are passed after the dessert Is served. Soar Milk Grlildl.cakes. There are no griildlecakes quite so good to many people as those made with sour milk in the old fashioned way before prepared flours were thought of. Take one cupful of thick sour milk with the cream left In, a level teaspoonful of soda and a generous plneli of salt. Stir together until thor oughly dissolved, then thicken with Hour. Fry ou a hot griddle with plenty of good, sweet lard, and they will be light, tender and delicious. The batter should he so thick that It will not froth and boll when dropped on the griddle, but not too thick to Bprend out of Itself into thin cakes. When mixed, try a lit tle. If too thick, thin with sweet milk. Wanted to Go to One of Hla Wed dings. The Rev. Dr. , a proiuinent cler gyman, relates with much gusto the following story about himself. His present wife, by the way. Is not the wife of his youth nor yet of his early manhood, but the lady of his third choice, and as a consequence the doc tor's set of olive branches spring from divers maternal ancestry. "Such a condition of affairs," said the doctor, "might at times become embarrassing except for the thorough amiability of all concerned. I confess, however, to a slightly disconcerted feeling when shortly before my third marriage I was approached by one of my daughters, a girl of 9 and one who called my second wife mother, with the question: 'Papa, will you let me go to see you married? I have never been at any of your weddings.'Fun. Like bad dollars, all counterfeits of DcWitt's Witch Hazel Salve are worth loss. The original quickly cure piles, sores and all skin diseases. Grower's City drug store. OASTORIA. Bears the /) The Kind You Have Always Bought WHAT WE MOST NEED GOLDEN RULE MORALITY INSTEAD OF LAW MADE MORALITY. There Mast Be "Chariots of the San" For All or For None —We All Stand Self Condemned) Accord-In® to Christ's Words. [Special Correspondence.] Emerson has said: "Every man takes care that his neighbor shall not cheat him. But the day comes when he be gins to care that he does not cheat his neighbor. Then all goes well. lie has changed his market car Into a chariot of the sun." Most people will consider those four sentences us about perfect. They certainly embody a grand con cept, but Is it complete? Let us look at It under the light of historical events In their grand ensemble of results. There Is not a single philosophic max im. not'a single solitary moral precept, which Is not equally applicable to men Individually and in groups. The moral law is no respecter of persons. It takes in all men and all human rela tions. It is because that has never been part and parcel of ehll and reli gious education that we remain In the wilderness of moral anarchy. Of course we have a certain morality fixed by leg islative enactments. Of course we have certain forms of respectability ordain ed by tradition, fashions, common agreements, etc., but has that proved enough? Has that made life worth liv ing? Has that suppressed evil, wrong, disease? Has that given us anything of the peace that passeth all under standing? It has simply given us the wars and excitements that prevent us from understanding anything. "A day comes when man begins to care that he does not cheat his neigh bor." Has that day come? It can only come when we stand by honest laws In all our social relations. It can only come when we have less respect for the twisted morality Ingrained in our legislation and more respect for the eternal moral law of God. Have we any of the latter? Yes, considerable In praying for It, none at all in acting. All our thoughts, feelings and acts are yet bent upon the mean, petty, narrow morality that limits its sphere of action on personal relations. Each individual considers himself yet the center of the moral order, the latter being fixed by our own laws or traditions for the ex clusive benefit of certain individuals, the smartest of the lot—those who have Influence enough to get behind the law, to control the law, to modify It and change It and reverse It for some to be always ou top, for most of the rest to remain at the bottom. All our constant changes and re touchings in the miserable hash of our law manipulations—there you have the symbol of error and immorality, the emblem of injustice and oppres sion. Truth is fixed. It changes not. Right is always right, because It Is always the same—one and indivisible forever. It Is very nice to speak of each one of us as being able "to change his mar ket car into a chariot of the sun" by the mere process of personal honesty. But who does It? It can only be done through poverty and obscurity. But who cares for that? Are not obscurity and poverty considered as synonymous with Inferiority and worthlessness. But why should there be any worthlessness anywhere? Why should goodness and wealth be piled up here and there? All God's laws In nature are laws of diffusion. There is no poverty or in feriority anywhere outside of man in contact with other men, and then It is only In proportion as they try to live against the natural laws of complete reciprocity and absolute brotherhood among them. Poverty and inferiority are then the reflex of immoral social conditions. We all stand self condemn ed, as men and as citizens, as long as our social status evolves classes and masses, wealth and poverty, goodness and wickedness, unless we preach and work for essentially distinct social con ditions. The chariot of the sun can only be here when we shake off the dust of selfishness and greed, when we cease to worship wealth, when we rise from the slumps and fetid miasma of our law made morality, of our Pharisaical respectability, Into the clear skies of the golden rule morality. And that golden rule should not remain a mere vain theory. It should be applied to all our collective relations. It should be the guiding star of the nation In all civil, political and industrial manifesta tions. Have we anything of the kind? Is not the spirit of the age, outside of petty groups of men here and there, exclusive, selfish, with not an atom of altruism in acts, however much we may have of it In our chatter, with which to hide the repulsiveness of all our social developments? There can be no chariot of the sun for any of us as long as we don't want to have a chariot of the sun for all. There haa to be a chariot of despair for every one of us as long as we worship wealth and relegate the estab lishment of righteousness to a tomor row that never comes, that can never come because we are not yet ready for it—we don't want it. "That they may perfect in one" was Christ's last prayer. What can that mean but the realization of the brother hood of men through socialized hones ty? Mere personal honesty! What a mis erable failure has that been ever since Cain killed Abel! JOSE GROS. Bricklayer*' Union (ironing;.
