"Bribery."
In his early days at the bar Sir Ed
ward Carson was so hard up that he
had to accept briefs marked as low as
half a guinea.
"On one ocasioni he was briefed to
defend a certain Mick O'Dwyer in the
Dublin courts at this meager figure. On
the morning of the case, as Sir Edward
was entering the court, a man stopped
him.
"Look here, counsel. ye've a bit of a
case.for Mr. Mick O'Dwyer, haven't
ye?" he said.
"I have-ihat abhout it?" demanded
"counsel."
"Well," replied the man with the air
of. a flnancier. "It's mesilf that's
O'Dwyer. an' I'll tell ye what-if ye
win the case I'll give ye five shillings
for yourself!"
Fine Expression.
In a review of :t novel we come
sacross this suggestive s,'ntence: "" 're
too, characters that transmute ,im
mon things into goli by the alchemy of
the spirit." The tinest thought of the
day is expressed by that modest sen
tence. The great problem in religion,
euteatli.,. iusiness. politics, and so
elety concerns Itself with that trans
mutation. It suggests a finuer life than
one gets out of the materialism of the
age, with its luxury, pleasure, selfish
ness, i1l will. spite, and overreaching.
The evolution of the day is toward the
sanctldficatlon of every-day experience
and Infusing herolsm into common life.
That in what must eventually happen
If humanity ever gets to be what it
should he. It is a long way to that
end, longer, perhaps, than from the
monad to man, as Emerson expresses
It, but thither the evolution proceeds.

The Office a Home.
A young fashionable was graduated
from Yale In June. His father is set
ting him up in business. This father
asked us itf we would not aid in the se
lecting of the office furnishing for the
young man. The father said: "Spend
whatever you hke. Not because I have
money, but because when a man works
in a place for so many hours it should
he made as comfortable as possible.
Many men spend more actual hours in
their offices than they do in their
homes. Their of9ces should therefore
be as attractive as their homes. That
is my theory, and I am going to prac
tice it for my son."

Old-Time Grain Reappears.
A grain called "guautli" or "huautli"
is mentioned in old Mexican chronicles
as among the articles of tribute paid
by the Mexican pueblos to Montezuma.
The identity of this grain has long
been a mystery. In recent years wild
and cultivated varieties of a grain, ap
parently the ancient guautli, have been
found in Slnalot and other states of
Mexico, where the natives use it for
food when maize is scarce. Species
that are similar if not quite the same
are cultivated for food in Peru and Bo
livia as well as in Tibet and the moun
tainous regions of India.

RECOGNIZE VALUE OF FIGS
Mothers of Young Children Make Them
Part of the Dally Menu-Some
Methods of Preparation.
Figs are becoming a national dell
eacy. Little need be said of their
medicinal value, save that as a laza
tive they are particularly good f*
children and are advisable to use as
tnrt of the daily diet. Preserved
skinless figs are delicious and may be
bought in jars or sans. Many like f

KEEP CISTERN WATER PURE
Filter That May Be Easily and Cheaply
Constructed Will Answer for
the Purpose.
The water in the cistern may be
rendered clean and free from Impuri
ties at a very snmall cost by putting in
a filter made as follows:
Slk a joint of common tiling into
the ground near the wall of the house.
'I -
A Filter for $1.00. A, Spouting; B, t
Tiling; C, Charcoal; D, Cement
Foundation; E, Pipe, Leading From
Filter to Cistern; F, Cistern.
Fill the tiling within a couple of
inches of the top with charcoal, place
a lid on it to prevent the mice, rats,
bugs and dirt, and all other foreign
substances from entering the cistern
by that route. t
If a piece of heavy wire screen is I
placed over the charcoal, so much the
better.
Have the filter rest on a foundation c
of clean stones or cement from three -
to four inches deep, into which a two
inch pipe should be arranged for car
rying the water to the cistern.
A piece of heavy screening should
be placed over that end of the pipe
plotrudirlg into the filter, and another
piece of fine screen wire should be fas
tened across the opening into the cis
torn; both of which are for the pur
pose of allowing nothing of any size
to get into the water supply.
Chocolate Cake.
Put one cupful sugar, one-quarter
cupful butter and three tablespoonfuls
cocoa in mixing bowl. Set on back of
range until siightly warm, then mix
well and add one whole egg and yolk
of another iell beaten, one-half cupful
milk and sift in with one cupful of
flour (no more), three-quarter tea
spoonful cream tartar, one-half tea
spoonful soda, one teaspoonful vanilla.
Bake in shallow pan. Batter may seem
too thin but will be all right.
Frosting--One cupful granulated su
gar, three tablespoonfuls boiling wa
ter. Boll until It spins a thread, then
turn into stiffly beaten white of egg,
add one-half teaspoonful vanilla and
beat until thick enough to spread.
Mock Chicken Loaf.
Two pounds uncooked real, put
through meat grinder, one-quarter
pound salt pork in like manner, one
beaten egg, three-quarters cupful pow
dered crackers, one-half teaspoonful
salt, pepper and sage to taste. Put in
pan such as you use for loaf cake. I
Bake one hour. It's nice, Just before
placing in oven, to beat one egg until
light. Pour Over, then sprinkle cracker
crumbs.
Orange Snow.
Slice the oranges and remove the
seeds and sprinkle with powdered
sugar. Then for six oranges stir in a
pint of whipped cream, or as much as
d the caeam will hold without becoming
Ssoft. Keep the cream on Ice before
g using, that It may be nice and stiff.
d Make a meringue of the whites of tour
eggs and half a cupful of powdered
sugar, and top the mixture with this,
return to the ice and serve very cold.
