Then, let us see how this will work in that dreaded semi-annual up heaval house Cleaning. As "in a multi tude of councilors there is wisdom," let i us see what effect the plan will have on this dreaded event. This is the plan suggested uy a woman in the Philadel phia Press: . With the sweet anticipation of sprimr, green trees, swelling buds, soft breezes and the singing of birds rises another thought, which at moments casts a dark >eil over coming delights. » » ■* j Every woman Knows that spring j cleaning must now bo undertaken, and the sooner this problem is faced the bet ter ' Go to the top of the house and take a good look at everything, and then go thoughtfully over the house, oy no means forgetting or alighting in any way the cellar. ** • • Take all the curtains down, and the pictures, and be sure to dean the backs of the latter.

If. however, you can not afford this the following recipe has been rec ommended for cleaning carpets. ♦ • ♦ Take "-.: lb. of common soda. 1 Ib. of yellow soap. 1 oz. of nitric acid and 1 gallon of water. Melt together first the soap and soda and add to the water and nitric acid, and finally, with a clean scrubbing brush, wash the carpet from seam to seam, doing a small piece at a ;inie, and drying as fast as possible. Df course, the carpets must be beaten first. • * * Now send for the painters, paperers nnd whitewashes, if you need them. am 1 let them do their work as quickly is may be. If your papers are not very dirty your servants may be able to clean them if they take first a soft broom and brush the walls in straight lines and then cut a quartern loaf in thick slices and rub the paper very lightly with it. always going in one direction and discarding tin' bread when dirty. Now put down your clean carpets and hang up your pictures and your clean curtains, See that your landings, are without reproach and your paint spotless from the top of the house to the bottom. Dirty paint must first be dusted with a brush ami ■ washed thoroughly but rapidly, a small piece at a time, with ?oda water, then rinsed with clean water and dried with a clean cloth.

"HOW I WON MY HUSBAND." Chicago Evening Post. 1 often wonder — nay, I never roaso wondering— at my own (food fortune, the same as 1 never cease thanking God for it. I look wound my boudoir, the room that Dick had prepared for inu as a surprise against my return from our honeymoon, ami 1 catch tight of my face in one of the mirrors, and for the thousandth time 1 marvel what he can ever have seen in poor, little, Insignifi cant me. Let me describe what 1 see In the glass. A small, slim personage, with a tiny rapt- all marked by the small-pox, a sallow complexion, and snub nose; the mouth, however, is small, and the eyes are large and clear and Intensely blue, while the curly hair, (hat will persistently set curl trim curls and plaits at defiance, is of the duskiest golden. As I am scrutinizing myself my hus band comes in. tall and handsome, a veritable king among men. "What are you doing, ma belle?" he asks in his deep, tender voice. "Looking at my ugly self in the glass, and thinking that the folks were right in wondering what you could ever have seen in me." "My precious one," says Dick pas sionately, "don't talk like that; you know how it Jpains me. What could! see in you ? Why, a woman in 10,000, a woman who voluntarily nearly gave up her life for mine." "Were you writing, Majorie?" he asks presently, as he catches a sight of some sheets of note paper which are scattered about on the quaint Chippen dale writing table that is drawn up by the fireplace. "Yes, dear," I answer, "I was think ing of writing a story; it will amuse me while you are hunting." "Margy. do me a favor," he says; "write about our courtship, the real truth, you know; for 1 am sure that that will make one of the bonniest tales ever written." "Grand idea, Dick." I cry, clapping my hands delightedly, "and 1 will call it 'How 1 won my husband.' " After he goes out of the room I think over what he said— that I have to write down the story of how I, Majorie Wil son, governess companion to Arthur Lynn, at a salary of £30 a year, became Lady Lynn, with a jointure so bountiful that if it were not for my almshouses, and the schools, and the model cot tages, 1 should never be able to spend it all. Well, to commence nt the very com mencement, lam an orphan. My dear father dying when I was sixteen, left mi; almost alone in the world, for my mother I never remember, for she died wlien 1 was born. Alter my great loss I went to live with my old governess, who kept a boarding school at Sydenham, ami on the whole 1 spent four very happy years there. Fate seemed determined to be kind to me, for the mother of one of our girls heard of a situation that, if I were fortunate enough to get it, would exactly suit me. It was to be governess of Lady Lynn's little boy. I wrote, ap plying for it, and in due" course an an swer came saying that 1 was engaged, my salary would be £90 a year, and 1 had to enter into my duties July 4. It was a long journey from London to Rinburn, in Northumberland, and don't mind eonfessine that 1 felt rather sad till I thought of how fortunate I was to get a situation, and then 1 cheered up. When I got to my destination 1 felt tired out. A tall, cockaded footman was on the platform, eagerly scrutiniz ing each female, and as 1 got out of the carriage lie stared at me ana touched his hat. "iMiss Wilson?" he said, interroga tively. 1 answered "yes," and then he saw after my Juegage, which consisted of one modest trunk, which he directed an obsequious porter to take to the splen did brougham that was waiting. After a drive of about an hour after passing through a long and stately ave nue of trees we came to Castle Fold, a huge rambling pile of gray stone build ings nearii covered with ivy and lichen. A stately butler met me at the entrance, and he conducted me to a bright-looking girl, whom I soon discovered was the schoolroom maid, who in turn showed me up to my bedrood, which was a charming room all furnished in light maple wood. When 1 wer.t down stairs Mary was waiting for me, and she took me to the door ol her ladyship's room, i knocked timidly; a rich," sweet voice said. "Come in." I entered, and there before me stood the most lovely woman that I had ever seen in my life. She came to me with her hand out stretched in kindliest welcome. "You must be very tired, my dear," she said. She briefly told me my. duties. I was not to be so much governess as compan ion to her son Arthur. He was nine years old. and, owing to an accident that had occurred some five years before, he was a helpless invalid, and stood sorely ill need of cheering. 1 asked to see my little charge, and I found him a sweet-faced little laddie, with a disposition as beautiful as his face. He suffered; ah, me, how he suf fered! ThanK God that time has now all passed, and Arthur is now better, and only a slight limp speaks for the years of martyrdom that he so patiently endured. So time passed on; i never felt my dependent position, for i rarely saw any ot the guests that were constantly com ing to and fro and making the house guy with their presence. Sir Richard was in India, but was expected home shortly. It was one cold February afternoon, and 1 had just come in irom a-brisk walk around the park. As I reached our sitting room door 1 heard Arthur say to some one: "You will love Marey, she Is so kind and good, and oh, so pretty; not grand, like mother, but pretty, you know." I went in, and sitting by Arthur was a tall, handsome man. who looked up quickly and scrutinized me keenly out of a pair of clear, cold eyes. "This is Margy, Dick. said Arthur. He bowed and said a few courteous words of thanks for my attention to his brother, then he resumed his conversa tion with the child. Sir Richard was very proud, very high in his ways, one of those men who would have died rather than have done a dishonorable action. Sometimes a friend of his, Capt. Nicholls, would come round with him, and sit and talk tome, which was very pleasant, if some thing about his eyes hail not frightened me so. One evening, shall I ever forget it, as 1 was walking down one of the quiet corridors, Capt. Nicholls met me, and taking me in his arms kissed me. I burst out crying, and called him a cow ard, but the more.l struggled to be free, the tighter he held mo and the more he kissed me. * Suddenly I found myself free, and there stood Sir Richard, Ins face white with rage, his eyes blazing, lie looked from my persecutor to mo. "You blackguard," he hissed, "leave my house." And then, giving me his arm, ho led me all flushed aud trembling to thealttiiu room and made me take some wine. Alter this Sir Richard was much mor« cordial I to me. Time passed ho quickly that I lnul been eighteen mouths at the Lynns.' Sir ltichard was enter taining royally. "Castle Fold" was filled with guests, when Sir Richard complained of feeling unwell. lie. came, into our r<>om nnd I was shocked to see how ill ho looked, his ey«s heavy and his cheeks Hushed. He rallied a little in the evening, but the next morning was so bad that the doit tor was sent for, and he pronounced him to bo suffering from small-pox. What a speedy and sudden- exit there was of all the. guests. The doctor came to me in despair. —*"Miss Wilson," he said, "I am at my wit's ends. Sir Richard is dangerously ill and must have good nursing. 1 have telegraphed for nurses, but small-pox is so fearfully prevalent in the country that 1 am afraid 1 shall havo to got them down from London." My mind was made up. "I will nurse him," 1 said. The doctor remonstrated half-heart edly, but 1 was otiiy happy to nurse him, for 1 must here tell my secret. 1 loved Sir Richard with all my heart and soul, and to have spared him a pang 1 would cheerfully have died. And then, as ho got better, I began to feel ill. 1 knew that it was small-pox, and 1 bejrged Dr. Vnkers uot to let Sir Richard know, but to send me to Hid hospital. He was very reluctant to agree, but I went on my knees to him, and he consented. 1 remember going in an ambulance and 1 remember noth inir more. One day I was sitting in an easy chair, feeling ever so weak. I had written three days before to Lady Lynn giving notice, for 1 knew that 1 never could go back again, loving Sir Richard as I did. I must have d-j/.ed, for i.i my sleep 1 heard a dear voice say: "Margy, my darling, my own sweetheart, come back as my loved and honored wife." "Yes, Dick." 1 murmured drowsily, "1 will come back, for 1 love you." "My precious! I ' and then 1 felt hot kisses on my lips. Startled, 1 opened my eyes, and there, not a dream, but a living reality, was my king on his knees before me. This is all. Sir Richard mad« mo marry him. 1 thought first that it was out of gratitude, but he swore that he loved me, and would never marry any woman but me; and still 1 refused; but when Lady Lynn came to me and told me how glad she would be to welcome me as her daughter-in-law, and how my pride was ruining Sir Richard's life— well, nothing loath, I gave in, and this is a true story of how 1, Marjorie Wilson, became Sir Richard Lynn's wife.

SHE GOT THE GUM. Feminine Acuteness Was Too Much for the Penny in- tbe-Slot Machine. New York Herald. One cold day last week a well-dressed and comely young woman stopped in front of one these penny-in-the-slot machines usually seen in drug stores, and which shed chewing gum, chocolate, etc. This particu lar machine had been set outside the door on the sidewalk, lying in wait for the weak and unwary who might other wise escape its seductive toils by not coming into the store. From the calm content of standing in everybody's way in the drug store and accepting such patronage aa is there bestowed upon it, this fiendish machine had gone out to de liberately hunt down Us vic tims. It was a cold day, but it will be a much colder day when the young wom an who was halted on the highway and publicly insulted and robbed by this machine gets lett. The wind came around the corner like a bulldog spoiling for a fight. It looked as though the young woman would have all she could do to keep her skirts from ballooning, but she did it with one hand and worked a slot for gum with the other. That is, she tried it, but though the penny went in all right the gum wouldn't come out. She was mad, but she opened her pocketbook, and taking a penny out of it put the penny in her mouth while she shut the pocketbook up again. Then she blew in the slot for luck and tried it again. But it didn't work anymore satisfactorily this time than it did be fore. Clearly, any further attempts would be throwing good money alter bad. en A woman hates to be beaten out of a cent, and I could see plainly from ray position inside the store that she was giving this highwayman a piece of her mind. The latter seemed to resent this by getting its slender legs tangled up in the young woman's skirt, and when she tried to separate them it grabbed her and tripped her up and fell on her. In the briefest possible space of time the angry pair were rolling over each other on the sidewalk, now the machine • on top, then the woman, but so hope lessly entangled you could only tell them apart by the legs, of which each i had apparently an Indefinite number. The wind just got up and bowled. ■ It was plain that the machine was getting the worst of it, for its face was smashed, and gum and chocolata sticks were scattered all over the sidewalk. The drug clerk rushed out to the rescue of his infernal machine, and i rushed out to the support of the woman. They broke away, however, before we got there, the machine having been "put to sleep," to use a pugilistic ex pression. The victorious woman didn't show a scratch, but rubbed her knee suspiciously and was as red as a lob ster. '-''V'- She shook herself together, as if to learn whether she was all there, and then deliberately picked up two sticks of gum and turned to the astonished drug clerk. * ■ "i got my gum, anyhow." she said.

The story of the murder of the prime minister of the native state of Ulwar, In Northwestern India, reads more like a tale from the criminal annals of some medieval Italian principality than a record of the present day. The minister was murdered while out riding by a gang of assassins. The inquiry ordered by the Indian government has resulted not only in the conviction of one of the principal military officers of the Ulwar state, but in a declaration by the court that tlio murder was executed by order of the late niaharajah of 111 war. It appears tnat this personage, desir ing for sundry reasons to have the min ister '•removed," confided the task to the officer commanding the imperial service troops— that is, the -force which the Ulwar state undertakes to send into tin; Helds should the Indian government call for its services. This worthy got together a gang of men, including some of his own soldiers, waylaid the min ister, and, whilo some of the party patrolled the road, others, as one of them who turned queen's evidence ex pressed it, "used their swords." They pleaded in defense that they were obliged to carry out the orders of tne niaharajab in committing the act. The court held that such orders had been given, but decided that they con stituted no defense, and sentenced two of the party to death and others to vari ous terms of penal servitude. Ad equately to appreciate this affair it should be remembered that Ulwar is no wild hill state on the outer contiues of India, but an ancient principality in the heart of the country, within a short dis tance of Delhi. The iate maliarajah bad received an English education, and Ulwar is in many respects accounted an excellently administered state. THIS I j lV it, Has a Cricket Farm That Is Bring ing Him a Fortune. Augusta Chronicle. "Yes, the cold weather is mighty hard on my cricket herd," said Afton K. llooten, of Greenfield, Tenu. "My cricket herd? Why, haven't you read about U? You see, I live in the middle of Tennessee, surrounded by the pret tiest lakes that the eye ever gazed upon. The waters are filled with trout and other game fish, and in the spring, sum mer and fall the sportsmen Hock there from all sections t>£ the country. One of the most curious facts about Tennes see fish is that they wish nothing but crickets. Ked worms, tall sawyers and the like find no fish tnat will bite at them in our waters, except suckers and small perch. "The most serious obstacle, therefore, with the fishermen is to get crickets. I organized a stock company with a few hundred capital and slatted to work last spring. I had a large pasture fenced in with boards about ten feet high, sowed grass, built my hot houses and incuba tors, and then began gathering my stock. My pasture consists of about twelve acres, and 1 calculated that 1 couid well graze 50,000 crickets to the acre. They sell readily to fishermen at $1 per 100, so you see "what a rich har vest there is in such an industry.

For years she was troubled with insomnia, and nothing recommended by the most eminent physicians would induce sleep. Under the advice of physiciaus, she recently tried Duf fy's malt whiskey Id small quantities and with the most sutisfactory results. While Mrs. Chase has always been staunch In her temperance principles and consistent In practice, she has no hesitation in recom mending to invalids who need a gentle stim ulant, Duffy's pure malt whiskey." H. H. Babeoek, the celebrated wagon man ufacturer of Watertown, N. V.. says: "My self and wife are using Duffy's pureaialt whiskey, and it is doing us good. We «le brated in November last our fiftieth anni versary, and we are now looking forward to the seventy-iii'-h. and believe that a good tonic may help us alone.'' E. C. Aviln, of the Brooklyn association for improving the condition of the poor, says: ''I have used Duffy's malt whiskey tor the past two years, having suffered from severe headaches and nervous prostration. I have been very much relieved by the use of the whiskey, and have gained nearly seven teen rounds in weight." The above statements spea* for themselves. The Odds are in favor of a Fur Cape.

SECOND-After $750,000 of the bonds have been thus retired and cancefeo (which it is expected will be accom plished in about four years) the amount of $25,000 per year, out of the surplus net earnings, shall be similarly applied to- the retirement of bonds ax not exceed ing 110 and interest. By these novel and most advantageous provisions the bondholder who desire* to sell, or whose bonds happen to 6s drawn for redemption, is assured of a large premium in addition to his full seven per cent interest up to the day of sale or drawing, while the intrinsic value of all bonds remaining outstanding increases year by year through the reduction 01 the total bonded debt. It will be seen by tbe Accountants" certifi cate that the net earnings for the year end j ing September, !S9'-\ were the equivalent ol I interest at 7 per cent upon the 51.500.03 C J bonds, and a surplus of Si J-, COO available foi the retirement of bonds in accordance with the provisions above specified. It is safe ta sny thai the fund available for the annual redemption of bonds will be still larger in the future. All of the stock of the Company and }700.« 000 of the bonds have already been taken. The proceeds of the bonds offered for sala will be applied to competing the purchase ', of the property from the former company. EIGHT HINORLD THOUSAND nOLLAKS of those bonds are now offered ! for subscription at par, payable 2.J per cent ' on application and 80 per cent on April 10, 1893. Receipts will be is>?ued for all amounts , paid, and will be exchanged for bonds upon ' making the final payment, or as soon there after as the said bonds are ready for deliv ery. If ihe bonds are not eneraved and ready for delivery by said date, f ull-Daiii ne gotiable Trust Company receipts will ba issued, exchangeable for the eneraved bonds.
