INGENUITY PRACTICED BY SOME

Ilaa proper eatlmat ever been placed, I
wonder, upon th. Urn amount of wit fiarr-
tniiur, the constant exercta. and consequent
development of Ingenuity practiced Djr to.
fair ladin of th. Confederacy during tbe last
yean of the war J
The exiirenckv of the time were grrat, tar
theoutaide remiircn of the tooth alim at the
tart. If one will recall the (mall number of
manufactories to be found in that section
were dwindling ft away, and often such
supplies a could lie developed at horn, and
among families were the only one, that could
be relied npnn.
The" Miplit luohiiled article of every
nature, from ftl and clothing for the fam
ily down to toy. for the children. Th. ques

ports were blurkmlpd by northern vowels and

troops, and woman' wit wa seveivlv taxei
in order to make a r-kx! appearance from the
material at her command.

The uljtvt of lights was auothcr with
which it was found dillicult to contend. Tal
low wu ucil fm-ly during the first years of
th. war; old candle molds were brought out
from their hiding place and put to um, and
"tallow di'' became as familiar to us as
Ihey had been to our forefather. But th.
ource of supply of thew "li(;lits of other
lays'1 soon became exhausted, and woman's
Ingenuity wa again put to the test. Lard
also had lieeu iu frequent use, and a favorite
Iht was a saucer or cnu filled with this
lielted MilwtH'ioe wherein floated a burniuj
lycamore bull. It, too, was growing scarce,
however, anil a new material must beevolved.
Several things were tried, but a mixture of
beeswax and rosin wo found best of them
U. Through tins mixture, when melted, a
long roil of onmlle ik was drawn again
and again until thoroughly coated, and in or
der to make this coating even several persons
stood In a row holding the wif king at short
intervals and shaping th. wax Uxn it as it
passed through their hands. The position of
greatest honor and difficulty in this under
taking was conceded to be the one next to
the pan containing the heated melted mix
ture. When cold, this waxen rope was wound,
row after row, around a bottle, with the free
end put through a strip of tin with a bole in
it. In order to bold it upright. These candles
gave forth a meager but a nt.-a.ly light.
"Candle making bees" were quite the style,
and young ladies and their military beaux
"on leave' managed to extract a great deal
of merriment from them. The refreshments
were usually fruit an. I peanut.
A light for sick rooms consisted of a scrap
of paper cut like a miniature cap and set in a
Saucer of lard. When the point of this little
Pap was well oiled and lit it gave forth suf
Scient illumination to see a watch or drop
medicine by. Before lard became so scare
a lady friend of ours illuminated her house
beautifully for an evening party with these
tiny jet of flame. Slie borrowed win.
glasses from far and near, converted them
into these little lamps and placed them in
pyramids on mantles, bracket and all avail
able place. The effect was very novel and
pretty. Those who lived in th. pine regions
obtained their light from th. picturesque
and cheerful glow of pine knots, but it wa of
So Bickering a nature as to be very hard upon
tb. eyes if reading, writing or sewing was at
tempted. A vision of a tielated war time supper,
eaten under the fantastic glare of a pine
torch, held by a negro boy at th. and of tb.
table, stands out in bold relief on the tablets
of my memory, and I can see a vividly a if
today the faces of those about the board, be
neath the wavering Eembrandtesque shadow
Of th. torch.

Taper grew very scarce toward the cUoa of
th. war, and newspapers mad. their appear
ance on wall paper, while the familiar tongs
of th. period, snrh as Loreua," "Richmond
on the James." "All Quiet Along th. Poto
mac To-ninht." "Rock Me to Sleep" and
"When This Cruel War Is Over" were print
td on sheets much reduced from tbe usual
tire, and of a very coarse brown paier. En
velopes were always turned, and thus made
to do double duty, and where letters were
written in pencil the first writing was erased
(usually with a piece of an old rubber shoe ,
and the same paper used for tb. reply.
School Isviks of an ancient date were
brought to light, and while in soma schools
but ouo text book of a certain kind was used
for an entire class, the pupils of auotber class
were, ierban, each supplied with a different
text book on th. tarn, subject. Tb. greater
Dumber of the remedial agenUuf th. tune
wer. prepared by the ladies, for regular
drugs had leen made rontraland and "were
txceedjugty hard to procure. Flaxseed, dried
blackberries, slippery elin and other such na
tural remedies as tii. country afforded wer.
kept on hand in most families. Healing
barbs were largely cultivated, and oftou
Unie tii. simplest remedies, such at pine
water or shuck tea, wer. mad. to terv. a

Sick and wounded soldiers wer. common
Inmate of private dwellings, and a roll of
lint and bondages were usually kept w-th the
medicine ready for immediate use.

of tbe way in which people of a speculative
turn are led to invest money in enterprises of
which they kuow hardly more than the nam.
A Boston man was ramping out In the wilds
of New Hampshire at a place which he and
bis party had reached by a tramp of several
days through the pathless forest. While en
joying his rest around a Or. which bad bean
made by logs from a great tree, cut down by
on. of the guides, a party of men ram. along
and stopped to bav. a chat with himself and
friends. After a little talk about the weather
and the fishing, on. of th. new comers said
Jocosely, "Io you know you are liable to a
fine for tresusuig on this woodland, cutting
down tree and burning up th. logsf" He
added that the property belonged to a cer
tain land company, tb. snares of which wer.
at one time quoted on th. Boston stock ax
change. As soon as th. other man heard tbe
name of the land company be said: "Well, I
never expected to get a cent out of that com
pany, and this is th. first time that I have
beard where it land is." The speaker by
chance had camped out on land of a company
in which he had invested years before and
bad never even known its location till It was
suggested to him at this meeting in th. primt
tiv forest. Boston Pott.

When Tain Is Imaginary.
"The fact that one-half of pain is imagina
ry,' sa d an uptown dentist yesterday, "is
shown uy the manner in which many persons
will st md most painful operations on some
occasions, while on others they will be all
nerves. 1 do not refer to the matter of
health, which, of course, affects tbe ability to
control one's self when under sever, pain,
but to th. particular circumstances under
which pain is inflicted at times in a dentist's
chair. The sight of instruments will often
make a timid person nervous, when he con
trols himself perfectly while twin; operated
"A --ery terrible thing to many people
who b iv. occasion to visit a dental office is
th. dei tal engine used in excavating teeth in
prejiar ng them for tb. fillings. As a matter
of fad the engine greatly lessens the pain,
both ty shortening the time required for
doing :he work, an1 from th. fact it is
less pa nful mode of accomplishing th. de
sired nault. Yet, until th. person becomes
accust med to its use, be is made very ner

business of making sauer kraut is confined to
a very few people iu the city. They buy the
cabbage bard and compact heads are tbe
best c it it up, salt it down and allow it to
fermen-. Then tbey sell it to th. places
a here it Is retailed, and at these tb. last
touches of flavor are added. It is these last
toucher that make th. difference in sauer
kraut, und sometimes the quality of the kraut
at one place ill be so much better than that
at othe -s that lovers of the disb will travel

For toe last fifteen or twenty years travel

very remarkable amber from torn, locality

amber is a rich golden vellow, and when
viewed in different position it exhibits a
