CARE OF CUT GLASS
HOUSEHOLD TREASURES EASILY
SPOILED BY MISUSE.
Slightest Scratch Made While Wash
ing or Wiping Means the End of
Usefulness of that Partic
In reply to an inquiry how to clean
cut glass "The Up-to-Date Waitress"
gives the following: Wash the glass,
one piece at a time, using a soft
brush as needed. Great care must be
taken with the pans, towels, cloth
and water used in washing and wiping
glass. If glass be scratched in any
way, even slightly, it is weakened,
and is almost sure to break at that
point. One grain of sand, such as is
often seen in the bottom of a pan
in which lettuce or spinach has been
washed, has been the occasion for the
loss of many a piece of fine glass.
Glass that is deeply cut is not easily
dried the moisture remains in the
crevices. Bury the glass as soon as
dried in a box of fine boxwood or
basswood sawdust (sawdust from
woods of a resinous nature are best
for this purpose). Let the glass stand
haif an hour or longer, then remove
from the box, and brush with a soft
cloth or chamois. Spread the sawdust
out to dry, then set aside to use again.
Japanese lamp shades grow more
beautiful each season. A few years
ago it was almost impossible to find
artistic shades, except those that were
made to order, and they were expen
sive. The Japanese have solved the
problem in inexpensive lamp shades.
Many attractive paper designs are
shown in the shops. The frames are
of wood, lacquered black, and treated
in such a way that they are not
affected by heat. The paper is tough
and of transparent quality. The decor
ations are by native artists, in simple
but rich tones, and are very effective.
The Japanese bowls for lamps are the
prettiest, but there are some good
shapes in American pottery that com
bine well with Japanese shades. The
bowls should be plain, but if a little
decoration is desired, it ought to be
Occasionally, a tired member of the
family, or perhaps one who is ill,
may wish breakfast served in his or
her room. A dainty individual ser
vice makes the fitting out of the tray
an easy task. But in case one has not
indulged in this luxury, select the
daintiest china. Have the linen spot
less, and the silver glistening. Let
the eggs be cooked just right, the
baked potato rolled in a napkin, and
the toast well covered. Make the tray
attractive by laying the fresh fruit on
green leaves, and garnish the broiled
fish or chop with parsley or cress.
If eggs are to form the breakfast,
they should be removed from the
shells, or if poached, garnished with a
bit of green.
Very large French prunes opened
and stuffed with Indian curry and
rice are one of the appetizers now in
vogue. The rice stuffiing is boiled
long enough to completely lose its
shape and to become a soft, somewhat
sticky mass. The curry sauce mixed
through it then is made very hot.
The insides of the largest available
prunes are then removed jrd
space for the filling and are ta v-' and
boiled down into a thick syrup. The
prunes at length are placed on a cir
cular bit of toast, while the syrup is
poured over the whole. It is custo
mary to serve this appetizer slightly
warm, two prunes being allotted to
Line a buttered bake dish with a
good puff paste. For a batter allow
two eggs and their weight in butter
and in dried and sifted flour. Cream
the butter and sugar, whip in the
yolks, beaten smooth, and then the
frothed whites, alternately, with the
flour, which has been sifted twice with
a teaspoonful of baking powder.
Now spread the puff paste in the
bake dish with peach jam, or with pre
served peaches, mixed with a table
spoonful of preserved ginger, cut fine.
Pour the batter upon this prepared
bed and bake in a steady oven. Cover
with paper as you would cake, remov
ing to brown after the pudding has
puffed up well.
It is really very nice when properly
made, although un-American in con
Before Luncheon Titbit.
Before luncheon small bits of dried
erring are frequently passed about as
appetizers. When this is done each
guest helps himself to two or three
pieces, places them pn his bread and
butter plates and nibbles away as his
fancy pleases. The herring is dry and
unobjectionable to the touch, so it is
picked up between the fingers. Some
times a little Graham biscuit is served
at the same time, and the two together

When Washing Lace Curtains.
When the lace curtains are ready to
be washed, baste a narrow strip of
muslin along each outer edge and let
it remain until the washing and dry
ing process is completed and you will
find your curtains are straight and do
not sag as usual.
For Table Use.
Rub smooth a quarter cupful mus
tard with a teaspoonful olive oil and
a tenspoonful each onion juice, sugar
and paprika. When well blended add

Warning That Intemperance Increases
the Liability to Contract Disease

against Intemperate habits: which in

Thinks Little of Chinese Army.
Dr. Morrison, the well-known corre
spondent of the London Times at Pe
king, went to see the recent maneu
vers of the modernized Chinese army
in the neighborhood of Chang-te-fu.
He describes them as a repetition of
the performance of 1905—a set piece
carefully prepared long beforehand by
a number of Japanese advisers. Th9
inefficiency of the officers is still con
spicuous and the field training of the
men inadequate, but the material is
good. Dr. Morrison hints that with
out Japanese officers to direct affairs
the contending armies would have
been little better than a rabble.
State Prison Makes Money.
The Connecticut state prison for
the fiscal year ended September 30,
1906. established a new record of rev
enues. Earnings from productive la
bor aggregated $57,411, while receipts
from various other sources swelled
the total income to $61,015. This
showing, representing nearly 74 per
cent, of the operating expenses of the
Institution, surpasses the Income ex
hibit of any previous year, and en
abled the prison management, despite
the high cost of supplies, to limit to
$22,861 its drafts upon the state treas

There is one man in San Francisco
who is not bothered by the rain. He
Is F. S. Morris, of Portland, who is
at the Imperial. Morris came in drip

and somebody remarked: "Gracious,
isn't this rain a fright?" "Naw, noth

country. Why, at home," and the
Oregonian swelled with pride, "in my

His many friends remonstrated with
him about this characteristic, know

would avail themselves of the oppor

these remonstrances the old man re

FEARFUL BURNING SORES.
Boy In Misery 12 Years—Eczema In
Rough Scales, Itching and In
flamed—Cured by Cuticura.
"I wish to Inform you that your
wonderful Cuticura has put a stop to
twelve years of misery I passed with
my son. As an Infant I noticed on
his body a red spot and treated same
with different remedies for about five
years, but when the spot began to
get larger I put him under the care
of doctors. Under their treatment the
disease spread to four different parts
of his body. The longer the doctors
treated him the worse it became. Dur
ing the day it would get rough and
form like scales. At night it would
be cracked, inflamed, and badly swol
len, with terrible burning and itch
ing. When I think of his suffering,
it nearly breaks my heart. His
screams could be heard downstairs.
The suffering of my son made me
full of misery. I had no ambition to
work, to eat, nor could I sleep.
One doctor told me that my son's
eczema was incurable, and gave it up
for a bad job. One evening I saw an
article in the paper about the wonder
ful Cuticura and decided to give it a
trial. I tell you that Cuticura Ointment
is worth its weight in gold, and when
I had used the first box of Ointment
there was a great improvement, and
by the time I had used the second set
of Cuticura Soap, Cuticura Oint
ment, and Cuticura Resolvent, my
child was cured. He is now twelve
years old, and his skin is as fine
and smooth as silk. Michael Stein
