The quince makes the best stock on which to dwarf the pear. New land is best for berries. Thorough cultivation is also an item. The lateral branches growing along the trunk of a tree serve to strengthen it. If tbe rabbits have gnawed any of the trees, tie cow manure over the wound. In order to be able to plant your garden early, provide good drainage in good sea son. If properly cared for, currant bushes will bear fruit for many years without re planting. In sowing seed in the hotbed be careful not to sow too thickly, if stocky, vigorous plants are wanted. Plant hardy varieties of shade trees. It is no advantage to grow a shade tree only to have it die when most useful. Now is a good time to go over the trees and pick off any clusters of eggs of the tent caterpillar that can be found. Of the different fruits the quickest re turns can be secured from the strawberry. A rich soil is best. St. Louis Republic. 20LA'S CONVICTION. M.

Cnlqne Floral Screen That Brighten Dull Room Window Framed With Flowers Tables or Tabourets Arranged For Plants and Cut Flowers. "The woman whose life is spent in making rooms look less square, walls less expressionless and ceilings less high welcomes the idea of growing flowers, KOVXb ASD ARTISTIC FLORAL SCKEEW. possibly not for the love of digging and planting, but because they give life and color to her rooms, softness and finish to her furnishings and a general artistio effect." Following this thought, a wo man gives in The Decorator and Fur nisher some novel and interesting floral designs, with directions for carrying them out, as follows: The floral screen is an inexpensive design to follow. The frame is easily made of any wood which can be Btained or enameled. Bamboo, which the Chi nese employ in the framework of their furniture, may be nsed with much ef fect. The screen need not be over five feet high, and if placed in an old fash ioned bay window which is neither cozy nor artistio it will have a wonderful effect in brightening up the room. The boxes are fastened each on ita own fold of the screen, wires being strung tightly from them to the top, and upon these wires are trained the vines. The boxes may be the conventional lit tle green painted affairs or the elabo rate tile boxes which are now nsed in many fashionable homes. If the former ia nsed, a little of the vine may be trained to fall over the box, thus con cealing its plainness. When the vine has reached the height of the screen, it can be pinched off and will then thicken and Bpread out. If the screen can be placed in a sunny, warm place, such flowering plants as morning glory, sweet pea or nasturtium could be grown with succeES, care being taken to re plenish the seeds as one or another of the plants faded away. A window framed with flowers is very easily arranged. A half dozen lamp brackets are screwed to the win dow casement and can be turned to ward the window or away from it, as desired. The flowerpots are set down in the brackets, and the vine, having dainty flowers, grows down over the pot until it reaches the one below, the six thus forming a veritable frame. It sof tens the outlines of the window and coaxes the sunbeams in. Tbe box on the lower part of the casemeat can be treat ed as the other boxes are, without any vine, simply a collection of bright flow ering plants. There are many ways or arranging tables or tabourets artistically with small palms or rubber plants. A band- some begonia, either of the variety which does not blossom bnt sends forth all its beauty in varitinted leaves, or those with the exquisitely colored wax like blossoms, makes an artistio center piece for the table. On the shelf beneath can be arranged a low dish of cut flow ers, or by using a double tin flower box, the upper one for the flowers and earth TABOUBKT WITH GROWING BLASTS. and the lower one used as a drainer, one can have any flower she wishes that will grow in a somewhat shaded place. Either pansies or delicate ferns would thrive. Echoes From the Press. Use no flowers under tbe brim of tbe new spring hat if you would be up to date.

In drawing tbe design the points of each leaf must touch something, if possible, so that tbe whole design is more or less connected. Tbe outlines are then but tonhole stitched and tbe interstices cut out, care being taken to have tbe thick edge of tbe buttonhole stitch on the side which is to be cut. tbe border lines be ing also finished in the same way. A strip of colored satin is then placed un der the openwork. Useful Card Utlquette. Whenever announcements are made of returns from journeys or of engage ments or marriages cards should at once be returned, says a writer in Good Housekeeping, io express regrets or declination of on- invitation cards do not suffice. Formal notes are necessary. In making a gift, however small, tbe card of the donor should accompany it. In calling married lady should leave a card for the mother of a young woman whom she visits even if she is not ac quainted with her. A physician uses the prefix "Dr. be fore her name or " M. D. " after it, just as a professional man would do. At present writing visiting cards are engraved in Roman letters oftener than in script. The pasteboard is thin, fine and bas a dull finish. In calling, if the lady of tbe house is in the parlor, the visitor merely leaves her card upon tbe table or in a receiver. The smaller tbe drink the clearer the bead and tbe cooler the blood, which are great benents in temper and busi ness. Penn.

Btlquette Observed by the Hostess 3rd Her Visitors. Ceremonious calls should be paid be tween the hours of luncheon, about half past 2 and half past 5 in the afternoon. They ought never to be paid ou Sunday. The hostess must immediately detach herself from those with whom she may be conversing and step forward to greet the newcomer and speak to her for a few minutes until she finds a comfort able seat. When a visitor enters a draw ing room, she should study to enter with self possession and composure. To some nervous women it is undoubtedly an awkward moment when entering a room full of possible strangers, but tbe ordeal should be gone through with as smiling a face as may be, and it is, at the worst, a very short ordeal, for, having shaken hands and greeted you, the hostess will hasten to pass ycu on to a seat some where in the room, so that she may be at liberty to receive other incoming guests. When entering a drawing room, it is a great mistake to stop and speak to friends until the hostess has been greet ed. It is enough to bow and smile and perhaps say in passing, "I'll see you again presently." It is also not the best taste to go round the room and shake hands with every one of your acquaint ance who may be present. It is better to bow to those who may be farther off and wait for the chance that may bring them your way. Not, however, that it would be incorrect once during the visit to change your seat for one by an inti mate friend with whom you may wish to speak. We have so far been regarding the visitor as calling with a number of oth ers, but should a lady call and be shown into the empty drawing room, pending the hostess' arrival, she should take a convenient seat and await her. It would not be well for the lady of the house to enter and find you standing, as though a complete tour and inspection of the room had been your recent occupation. When two ladies call together, they should be careful that the hostess does not come in and find them just conclud ing some private conversation. An ordinary call of tho kind we are now considering should not exceed 25 minutes unless its extension is nrged by the hostess. A first ceremcnious visit should never be longer than 15 minutes. Some ladies cut it down to 10. Nothing is more tiresome thau a formal visit, for so little interesting conversation can be entered into, but there are a few subjects that must not be touched upon i. e., personal ail ments, domestic inconveniences and the discussion of mutual friends, save in the briefest and most kindly manner. Gossip, which at all times should right ly be barred, must be especially so dur ing the course of a short first call. Artistio hat Inexpensive Fnroiture. People of culture turn with disgust from a large proportion of the cheap or namentation which altogether ruins the MODERNIZED SHERATON SIDEBOARD. otherwise artistic value of large quan tities of modern middle class furniture. Fortunately the demand for furniture of plain but desirable appearance bas been met by manufacturers who are am bitious to demonstrate that furniture on good lines need not necessarily be ex pensive. In illustration may be citea a simple but creditable style of sideboard in mahogany enriched by brass handles. This may be briefly decrioed as a mod ernized edition of the popular "Shera ton" style. Care Io Small Matters. That household is the happiest and best managed where tbe mistress looks after small matters herself and requires those under her to do likewise. Wear and tear of domestic articles may be considerably reduced if tbey are treated intelligently. For example, tubs and buckets are preserved from cracking if a little water be left in them. Sauce pans and kettles can be prevented from rusting if when washed out they are placed upon the fireplace, so that all moisture may be evaporated by the heat. Kitchen towels will last longer and keep clean better if only used for one pur pose, if thoroughly dried after use and if bung upon towel rollers when fanished with. Cinders should never be thrown away before they are sifted, for the larger pieces that would remain in the sifter would form an excellent basis for new fires, which they start very well, provided some new coal be laid upon the top. The ashes themselves are u t to be despised as a scouring agent for the greasy metal of buckets, saucepans, eta Baked Chowder. An exchange tells how to make a nice dish for lunch from cold boiled fish left over. Cut 4 good sized cold boiled pota toes into dice. Pick into shreds suffi cient cold cooked fish to muke one pint.

Haddock Stnffed ud Baked and Handsomely Garnished. "Fish for fasting days and, moreover, flapjacks and puddings, " quoted the Boston Cooking School Magazine, in il lustrating and telling how to prepare" a handsome dish of baked cod or haddock, with garnish of puree of peas, parsley and lemon, as follows: Remove the eyes from the head and the fins from the body of a dressed had dock weighing about four pounds. Soak in cold water about five ounces (one fourth a loaf) of bread, from which the crust has been removed, for 15 minutes. Put the bread in a piece of cheesecloth and wring out all the moisture, add a tablespoonful of-parsley, chopped, 2 ta blespoonfuls of ouion, chopped (or a tea spoonful of onion juice), one-fourth teaspoonful each of salt and pepper, one fourth cup of melted butter, and, if desired quite dry, the beaten yolks oi two eggs. Fill the body of the fish with the stuffing and sew up the opening. Pass the tail through the sockets from which the eyes have been removed and pass a skewer through, close to the head, to hold it in place. Arrange on a fish sheet in a baking pan, together with bits of onion, carrot and parsley. Lay FISH WITH OAUNISH OF PEAS. ETC. thin slices of salt pork ou the top of the fish and put into a hot oven. In about 15 minutes baste with a cup of hot white broth and reduce the tempera ture. Bake 40 minutes, basting tbe fish thoroughly every 10 miuutes with the liquor from the pan. Then remove the pork and pour a white sauce made of 2 tablespoonfuls each of butter and flour and a cup of white stock over the fish and sprinkle over this fine, soft bread crumbs that have been stirred into melted butter. Bake 15 minutes longer, or until thacmmbs are brown. Slide the fish from the sheet on to a warm platter, remove the skewer, squeeze the juice of a lemon over the fish and garnish with parsley, slice of lemon and a puree of peas. Strain the sauce, remove the fat and serve in a sauce boat. Tomato sauce may be used instead of the white sauce. Taste thor oughly, or the fish will be dry. For the puree of peas press cooked peas, fresh, dried or canned, through a sieve or fine colander. Heat with a lit tle butter, a teaspoonful of sugar, salt and pepper to taste and if needed a lit tle hot milk or stock. When very hot, press through a pastry bag with star tube attached in any form desired about tho fish. Stars of peas may alternate with bunches of parsley. Fashionable Undergarments. In no department of dress has the change in fashion been more apparent than in undergarments. A great many people nowadays are abandoning petti coats altogether in favor of knickerbock ers, and, abjuring either cotton or linen, have recourse to woolen combinations. which are now made up most tastefully with lace insertions and colored ribbons, or, perhaps, what is more chio still, with cambric frills crimped, for the old fashioned crimping which our grand mothers favored is once more asserting itself. A great many chiffon frills as well as muslin are thus treated. But, not content with frillings and lace, some of the new woolen lingerie bas been embroidered just as linen is now worked in raised satin stitch. New Window Draperies. The assurance is given that the cor nice and vallauce are surely coming into favor. The New York Tribune illus trates the design of a draped window in modification of tbe Louis XVI period, when carved wood cornices and em broidered silk draperies were in vogue. While the tendency of the present day is to a simplicity of design and the utilizing of the curtain material simply as a method of grouping combinations of tone or colors for effect in connection with the side wall decoration, the sim wmMm SHOWING CORNICE AND VALANCE. pie straight curtain need not always be adhered to. In the design shown the cornice and vallance are both covered with tbe same plain material as tbe side curtains. Tho embroidery or applique on vallance can be omitted to meet the intended expenditure without detriment to tbe general effect. The addition of a cornice and vallance is certain to come into favor, for it serves tbe twofold pur pose of connecting at tbe top two dis jointed strips of material and permits the curtain to bang in straigbt, digni fied folds in prefereuce to the oblique and light excluding lines of the ordinary enrtains.

There is one poprf-mn wrnrpr, for which fullest reparation is urgently demanded. Whatever else may be compromised, it never can be. It involves within it6elf every element of wrong that any and all the rest contain, and more. It touches at once the financial interests of the nation, the security of.roperty, the sanctity of human lives and the honor of the nation. That is the destruction of the Maine. It is to be kept in mind whatever of peaceful negotiations may yet be possible. It is to furnish the chief rallying cry in war, if war there be. There must be reparation for that awful wrong. The other in jures this nation has suffered must be atoned tor, but the Maine must, be remembered. Tbe woes of the Cuban people must be abated, but the Maine must be remembered.

Extract from Spech at J- ft rann Barquet, Washington, April 1:1 The Cubtins have earned their right to be free. Our right to recog nize the independence of the Cuban government can be defended upon the ground that our infprests are involved, as well as upon the ground of humanity. Spanish rule in Cuba has resulted in a generation of re volt, and Srain has shown herself impotent to quell insurrection and restore order. We have a right to jrotest against the continuance oi sucn a government so near our shores as to disturb our industrial and political life. It we are asked for a specibc griev ance, we can point to the destruction of the Maine and the death of our tailors. If the Maine was destroed by the connivance of Spanish officials, it was a crime too great to te described by words. It it was destroyed without official count vance, thpn we cannot tolerate so neai us the existence of a govern ment which is so careless as to allow the destruction of a friendly ship.

If you feel weak and very languid take a tonic internally, ana apply one also to the hair com posed ot quinine in solution, with directions Irom your family phjti cian. If baldness com' s apace use vase line there is nothing mor certain to promote hair growth than thit-; when ver there are pores to terd hair will come unless asre has killed the tiny hair bulbs. When curling the hair always wipe the iron some do not; the soot rots the hiir. Never tie the hair too tightly, that is certain to cause damage by strain ing the roots. a tiny pincn ot borax with rure castile soap shaved in a basin of warm water is the best shampoo.

I mean to make myself a man, and if I succeed in that, I shall succeed in everything else. James A. Garfield. It is impossible to live pleasurably wibout living prudently and honor ably and justly, or to live prudently and honorably and justly without living plasurably. Epicurus. Luxury makes a man so soft that it is hard to please him, and easy to trouble him, so that his pleasure at last becomes his burden. Luxury is a nice master, hard to please. Mackenzie.

I can't stand neglect. It isn't much trouble for a really healthy man to be good humored. Jollity and exhuberant health are a pro verbial combination. The hearty man who is alwavs laughing doesn't have any trouble with his digestion. It has been said that laughing makes people healthy. The truth is that health makes people laugh. It is impossible to estimate the tre mendous influence of health upon human character. A man with a hi-ailache will not be in a happy, contented frame of mind. A man who suffers from a weak stomach and an impaired digestion will sit and grumble through the best meal ever prepared. A bilious man who is not a bore, is deserving of a place in a museum. A nervous man who is not petulent and fault-finding is a curiosity. All these con ditions lead to grave diseases, when the victim becomes not only disagreeable, but dependent as well. A wise wife will real ize that while the old saying that a " man's heart is in his stomach," is not literally true, it is a fact that his stomach sweetens or sours his character according as it is healthy or unhealthy. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is the best of medicines for the conditions described. It makes the weak stomach strong, the impaired digestion perfect, invigorates the liver, purifies and enriches the blood and tones the nerves. It tears down half-dead, inert tissues and replaces them with the firm muscular tissues of health. It builds new and healthy nerve fibres and brain cells. It dissipates nervousness and melancholy and imparts mental elasticity and courage. It is the best of all known medicines for nervous disorders. Through your skillful treatment I am once tiiore a well man." writes J. N. Arnold. Ksq., of Gandy. I.ogan Co.. Nebr.
