THAT THAT WILL GIVE HS5 SEE ULtt. s s Cigars I CODPI, WITXTAM P MTI.LBR, fJr.t Manr A Queen's Thoughts. It takes a good many operations of the mind to make up what can justly be called a thought; and as the Rouma nian Queen herself made this observa tion, it may fairly be surn;ested that the title under which her collection of in genious, witty, thoughtful notes lias been brought out is not a perfectly ap propriate one. They are all written with wonderful neatness and nicety; a most important poiut, considering how the whole character of the maxim may be altered by the omission or substitu tion of a word. One runs the risk of falling into some perversion of meaning in endeavoring to turn into plain Eng lish "thoughts'" written in perfect French. The attempt, however, is worth making, and here are a number of "pen sees" of Queen Elizabeth, selected, on no particulaf principle, from the first half of the volume: "Women are bad through the fault of men; men are bad through the fault of women. "The man loves above all the woman; the woman loves above all the children. Here, of course, the fuller meaning be longing in French to the word femine is in the English lost. "The savage woman is a beast of burden; the Turkish woman an animal of luxury; the European woman a little of both" In the French, une bete a deux fins, a horse for either saddle or shaft. "The honest woman is to the woman who is lost only a looking-glass in which the latter sees her wrinkles, and which in her rage she would like to smash. "A woman emits sometimes a daring opinion; but she retires shocked if she is taken at her word." Several of the thoughts about women are untranslated by reason of the dou ble significance attached to the word femnie. The following, for instance: La femme clu monde resit difficilcmcnl la femme de son mari. Women, the corners of whose mouth hang down, are, we suppose, illtemper- ed; in which case the following piece of advice is excellent: "Do not niany a woman the corners of whose mouth hang down; the mouth itself mis:ht be a cherry, but you would all the same find the fruit bitter. "In matters of science women are so much accustomed to being treated as of no account that they mistrust savans who treat them seriously. "A woman is stoned for an action which may be committed by a man of perfect honor. "Women are considered unjust be. cause ther are impressionable; but im pressions are often more just than judg ments. It is the question ot the Jury and the Judge. "A woman who is unhapnv is a flow er exposed to the north wind; she re mains for a long time a bud, and when she ought to burst into bloom she fades, "Women seek to counteract in their children the defects of their husbands and those of his family. "A woman who is not understood is a woman who does not understand oth ers. temme meomprwe in the origi nal is of course much better than a 'wo man who is uot understood in the trans lation. "It is because men are wanting in ar tistic sentiment that women paint them selves; if they had anv feeling for the picturesque, rice-powder itself would disappear. "Man destroys with horns like a bull, or with paws like a bear; woman by nibbling like a mouse, or by embracing like a serpent. "Men study women as they study the barometer, but they ouly understand the day afterward." "From selfishness men make severer laws for women than for themselves, without suspiction that by doing so they raise them above themselves. "Forgiveness is almost indifference; while love lasts forgiveness is impossi ble. "You hate the unhappy woman whom you would have liked to console. "An excellent housewife is always in a state of despair; one would often like the house less perfectly kept and more peaceful." St. James Gazette. Writing Poetry Under Difficulties. Scene: A j'ouncr poetess engaged in writing an impassioned poem. Hus band standing in an unsympathizing at titude, endeavoring to make himsebt heard: Poetess: "Tell me, my heart, whence springs this bitter tear?" Husband: "I've asked you for my slippers twice, my dear." Poetess in provoked prose: "Oh! they're somewhere, Charles; do look for them yourself, and let me write!" "Tell me, rov heart, whence springs this bitter tear?" Husband: "I tell you what, Jane, bacon's scarce this year!" Poetess angrily: "Oh! Charles, I wish you would save your bacon, and let me write. You keep putting the rhvme out of my head." Ilusband pathetically: "Ah! my dear, I wish 1 could do that!" Poetess: "Tell me, my heart, whence springs this bitter tear?" One of the children coughs violently in bed. Husband distractedly: "Poor Tom my'8 got the whooping-cough, I fear!" Poetess throwing down her pen in desperation, exclaims: "Well; I wish you were all anywhere but here!" An Unsatisfactory Will. To make a will which shall give satis faction to all the heirs is no easy mat ter. It does seem as if a man should be allowed to do what he chooses with his own property, as long as he does not in jure society; but interested parties very frequently think ditlerentlj and only a wholesome fear of the penalty of the law keeps many a selfish person from following the example of the widow in the following incident. A farmer's will was presented for pro bate (it was in old days) to an arch deacon during his visitation. He found a name scratched out. The widow step ped forward and explained: "I tells you how he be, sir. When we comes to look into the will, we sees 50 left to John Wheeler. 'What's he got to do with master's money?' says I. So 1 gets a knife and scratches him out. and that is just how he be, sir." Mozley's Ox ford Jteminixixnr.es. Gloves, Old and Key. Gloves were articles of Orntal dress. for according to Xenophon, they were worn by Cyrus the Persian; nd Athen roous speaks of a celebrated gourmand who came to a banquet with gloved hands, that he might eat more rapidly than his fellow-guests, who had to wait until the viands were cool. In ancient times a elove was emolov- e'd as a token or pledge of faith in the making of contracts a sort of substi tute for the hand itself being cast down by one contracting party, to be taken up jis sealing the agreement by the other. Uefore the union of England and Scot land, the Borderers having once pledged their laitu to an enemy, regarded its violation as a gravo crime; and, when such a breach of honor occurred, the injured person rode through the field at the next Border meeting, holding up a glove on the point of his spear as a pledge of faith and proclaimed the per fidy of him who had broken it. To wipe out such a stain, the criminal was often slain by his own clan. Passing over all mention of the gloves worn by KnighU with their mail armor, or having over-lapping plates of steel, I will name a few of those of which some note has made been made in history. A fur-lined glove, worn by Henry VI, is still preserved in the old mansion that fave him shelter after the disastrous attle of Hexham (1404). The son-in-law of. Tunstall, and "esquire of his body," Sir Ralph Pudsev, kept him in concealment at Bolton Hall, Yorkshire; and there, when he left his faithful host, he also left a boot, spoon and glove. The latter is of tanned leather, lined with hairy deer skin, turned over at the wrist a.s a deep cuff. The embroidered gloves of Cceiir de Lion lost him his liberty at one time, and might have cost him his life. He was lying in concealment in an enemy's country, and his page carried them very indiscreetly in his pocket though per haps for their better safety when sent by his royal master to obtain food in the neighborhood of Vienna. How it hap pened it does not appear; but they were seen, and recognized as being only suit able for a crowned head to possess. The same night the King was captured by the Duke of Austria, and sold by him to Emporor HenryjVI for 60,000 pounds of silver. Anne Boleyn seems to have been very particular about her gloves, and it is recorded that her royal predecessor used to delight in making her play cards with them, that some little blemish in the shape of one of her nails might of feud the King. Queen Mary and her sister Elizabeth took pride in this article of dress. It is said that the latter was extravagant in the extreme about them, and that a marvelous pair wf-j at one time present ed to her that was iuclo"jJ in a walnut shell. She even retaiuea her gloves when playing her virginal. One "payi of gloves embrawret with gold," is re corded as having been sent to her sister Mary as a New Year's gift before her accession, and "ten payr of Spanyshe gloves from a Duches in Spayne" came to her a year afterward, while at about that time "a pair of swete gloves" were also presented to her from Mrs. Whel- lers. 1 he degradation of any exalted per sonage in the middle ages was express ed bv the deprivation of ins gloves just as a glove was presented to him in the ceremony of bestowing on him lands or honors. The enormous quantity of so called kid gloves is greatly in excess of the amount of leather afforded by the skins of all the young goats annually killed to supply the demand. There has long been quite a trade carried on in Paris bv the ffamins in rat skins, who have much profitable sport in catching them at the mouths of the great drains of the city. Our real kid skins come from Switzerland and Tuscany, dispatched from Leghorn. Queen. How Much a Million Dollars 'Weighs. Mr. E. B. Elliott, the Government Actuarv, has computed the weight of million dollars in gold and silver coin as'follows: The standard gold dollar of the Unit ed states contains of gold of nine' tenths fineness 25.8 grains, and the standard silver dollar contains of silver of nine-tenths fineness 412.0 grains. One million standard gold dollars, conse quently weighs 25,800.000 or 53,750 ounces trov, or 4,579 1-6 pounds troy. of 5,760 grains each, or 3,685,61 pounds avoirdupois of ,000 grams each, or 1, 843-1,000 "short" tons of 2,000 pounds avoirdupois each, or 1 b4o-l,000 "long tons of 2,200 pounds avoirdupois each. One million standard silver dollars weigh 412.500,000 grains, or 859,375 ounces trov, or 71,614.58 pounds trov, or 58.928.57 pouutls avoirdupois, or 29 464-100 "short" tons of 2,000 pounds avoirdupois each, or"JooU-l,000 "long tons of 2,249 pounds avoirdupois each.

"Never you mind me," said a bent over old man, when asked what had happened to him. "How did he get hurt?" asked a man out of breath. "Did the horse step on him?" queried a colored man, with spectacles on. "Where did the dog bite him? Did they shoot the dog? Was it a big dog? Has he got a wife? Did they live to gether?" rattled a woman made up a good deal like Widow Bedotc Come and see the man in a fit," sqeak ed out a boot black, as he called the rest of the brigade. "Look out! he's going to shoot!" yel led a big man with red whiskers; and the crowd blew away like dust when the old man slid his hand into his pocket as if for a shooting iron. Then he straightened himself and started off on his own individual busi ness, muttering something about "What ,the mischief it was to them if he wanted to sit down and take a peg out of his Bhoe." The ruling passion strong in death: "John," feebly moaned a society lady, who was alwut shuffling off this mortal coil; "John, if the newspapers say any thing, about my debut into another world, just send me a dozen marked copies." "I met a lovely woman from Rome, G.L, yesterday, and she said: "I've been at summer resorU for a month, and all 1 want now is to be in my back. porch at home m a loose wrapper and my face buried in a Georgia water melon.'

Society life in Des Moines, Iowa: "A young couple in the gallery of the opera house last night were so overcome by the beautiful forms on the stasre that they sank into each other's arms with a kiss and a hug. The yonng man wore an immense wide-brimmed hat, which the young lady worked vigorously as a farrto keeD him cool. A rural rooster who saw the performance yelped with envy. ' "Pa, what is a pessimist, and what is an optimist?" "A pessimist, my sou, is one who takes the surplus kittens, just after they are born, and chloroforms them. The optimist is one who lets the kittens grow up, to live a wretched, starving life; to be tortured continually by boys and other thoughtless animals, and to be finally killed with brickbats and left to rot on the streets." "Father, if mother should sit"n a chair and you should want it, you would sav, 'Get up dear, wouldn't vou J ' Yes," said I. "But," said the little four-year-old, "if I should sit its ,i chair vou wanted, you would say, 'G!t down, dear?' " "Well, what is the Uif- i fi-rence?" said she; and as if perfectly satisfied that she had given utterance to a poser, she replaced her thumb in her mouth again, and looked sidewise with a rougish smile on her countenance. Lately at the Theatre, Royal, Dubbo, Australia, while Mrs South was singing magnificently in "Mme. Angot," a bearded and top-booted miner entered the auditorium and sought out his rough- looking and coarselv-attired mate. Well, chum? how is it getting on?" asked the late comer. "Well," replied the other, "she was a singin' just like old peaches all to herself, until a lot of yellow idiots and women rushed in and drowned her pretty voice by jining their screeches into a regular gulch squall." Three years ago a seaside summer boarder, while straying along the bed of a stream that had been left partially bare by excessive drouth, discovered", lyin upon the sand, a conchiferous bi valvular mollusk vulgus, clam that seemed to be in the last gasp from ex haustion and thirst. Pitying the sore distress of the unhappy bivalve, the stranger took it up and cast it into the deep part of the stream, and went on his way happy in the thought of a kind ness done. He speedily forgot the in cident. A week ago, however, as he was enjo3-ing again a summer vacation, and sitting near the spot where the event of three years before had taken place, he perceived a clam clamboring laboriously over the rocks toward him. Arrived with much exertion at the feet of the amazed observerthe clam opened its shell and disclosed a pearl as large as a hazel nut. This the gentleman un hesitatingly appropriated, and thereup on the grateful clam, smiling clear around to its back hinge, returned joy fully to the water and disappeared with a gurgle of satisfaction.

It is stated that a block of creosoted pine, in use in the street pavement in Galveston for seven year3, was recently examined and found to have lost but an eighth of au inch. A Cincinnati society reporter has mysteriously disappeared, and foul play is suspected, although it is possible that he is hiding somewhere in the Kooky Mountains, as he was well supplied with railroad passes.

Febrifnge, and as an Orna ment. Since the sunflower has become fash ionable, people have taken to cultivat ing it As they want some other excuse than estheticism therefor, they will no doubt be pleased to learn something of the practical utility of the flower. The blossoms will feed the bees, and its seeds are the most excellent food for poultry in Winter, on account of the oil they contain, while the leaves are said to make good fodder if dried in thesnn, cut up line and mixed with bran, for milch cows. In England large quanti ties of sunflowers are raised solely for the purpose of feeding stock and hens. In Russia the sunflower is extensively cultivated for the oil the seeds contain! The oil is palatable, clear and flavor less, ind it is used for adulterating olive oil, being exported from St. Petersburg to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Next to poppy seed oil, sunflower oil burns the clearest and longest, so that the peasants apply it to household pur poses. From the stalks of the plants they also make a good quality of pot ash, and the residue of the seeds, after the oil is extracted, is made into oil cake for feeding the stock. Sheep, pigs, rab bits and all sorts of poultry will also fatten rapidly upon the oil cake, and will eat the seeds with as good a relish, as they eat corn. The sunflower will grow anywhere, and it is an excellent plant to absorb bad air and prevent malarial disease. It should, therefore, be planted about pig pens, barn yards and hen roosts, and serve a double purpose. The seeds should be planted twelve inches apart and when ten or twelve inches high earth them up like corn hills, and they will ask no further attention at your hands. Lach plant will produce at the lowest estimate one thousand seeds. The center flower often produces that amount, and the lateral flowers several hundred. Six pounds of seed will plant an acre, and it can be planted after the crop of early potatoes has been harvest ed. "She oil extracted from the seeds is . most excellent for making the nicest kind of toilet soap, and if the stalks are treated like llax they will produce a silky, fine fiber, which, it is said, the O.iiiese use to adulterate their silk ifc-vnifactiires.

Iceland was settled by the well-to-do Northern warriors who came from the land of song and legend. The Norse settler was a solitary man, or at least he lived in his lonely homestead with no society but that of his household and de- elendente. "He had time to meditate on the deeds of the national heroes and of his own ancestors time to turn some of his intense energy into the form of poems and histories, and to repeat them to others, who learned them by heart from his lips. His son, very likely, went to jNorway; halt a warrior, half a poet. he lived a while in the King'sCourt,had his strong imagination yet further ex cited by change and wanderings, and returned to Iceland which then, as now, had for her sons an irresistable at traction able to tell a better story and chant a better poem than before. And so the light was kindled, and spread trom homestead to homestead, and class of men rose up, the poets or skalds, who could repeat the s ;g:-s, word fort word, for hours together." Nor had these poetic warriors to draw solely on their reminiscences, or on the old Scan dinavian sources for inspiration. On the contrary, as we have said, the most spirited of the sages, which have been immortalized by the intensity of their dramatic realism, were the reproduction of personal experiences or the events of family history. The acts of the drama, with their bloodyr scenes, might have passed within arrow flight of the author's window; while the flames from the farm he had once rebuilt had thrown their ruddy glare on the ater of his own fjord. There was little difficulty in re viving the impressions which loft their indelible mark on the memory. And we may remember that the warlike Ice landic settler had a double character. At home he was a peaceful cattle owner and cultivator of the soil, fairly observ ant of the national laws, and a kindly neighbor, except under provocation. Abroad he was one of those remorse less rea-rovers who were bracketed with famines and fire in the litanies of the suffering coast-Christians. Professional robber as he was, many a wild deed might haunt him in the seclusion of his family circle and thejrloom of the north ern winter. He was still probably half a heathen at heart, though he had been held over the baptismal font, and vowed devotion to the White Christ. mack wood's Magazine. Experiments on the Eye. That sensations of light may be pro duced by mechanical irritation of the nerve of the eye is now shown to be the case, by observations recently made by Schmiut-Kimpler, on person from whom 'an eye had been removed not long before. A blunt instrument was placed against that part of the orbit in which the stump of the nerve was situ ated, and the observations were made in a room almost completely dark. Of six persons, in two, pressure on this spot always caused a flash of light on the side of the enucleated eye, and some of them averred that the sensation exactly resembled that which he had before ex perienced when the eye-ball was gal vanized; the same patients experienced a similar sensation when the stump of g j tiie ueive k iiineu. x ne liejiitu ve result oi otuer cases is explained oy me more complete atrophy of the nerve, or greater reaction of the stump. "Having a little fun with the old man" will cease to be a common festivity when the country as a whole adopts the policy jf an Alabama court that seuteuccd a youthful darkey parricide to fifty years t bard labor in the penitentiary- Punereal Flowers. Of all the esthetic and decorative uses of flowers the most delicate and per plexing are at times of death and burial. Who can treat a theme reaching so many broken hearts and darkened homes with gentle, wholesome touch! For something of Christian hope, and the far outlook of faith, have penetrated the savage, half-heathen spirit of funeral observances years ago, and the old ghastliness and terror have given placs to something better. "Jesus lives I No longrer now," would have broken upon such solemni ties with almost intrusive, jarring clam or, once upon a time; and the presenso of flowers in the chamber of departure pn the coffin at the solemn burial of the dead, savored of down-right flip pancy. So much for the slumberous, long-clinging shadows of the old Puri tan darkness! Yet in the truest elegy in uninspired song we see the poet strewing blossoms and wreaths in his opening lines: Yet once more, O ye laurels, and once more. Ye myrtles brown, with ivv never sere. I come to pluck your berries harsh and crude; And with forced tinkers rude. Scatter your leaves before the mellowing year." And in the tearful climacteric flowers are more forceful than words: 1 return Sicilian Muse, And call the vales and bid them hither cast Their bells and Huweretsof a thousand hues. rsrinir the rathe primrose that forsnken dies. The tufted crow-toe, and pale jessamine. The white pink, and the panay freaked with let. The (flowing voilet. The musk-rose and the well-attained woodbine. With cowslips wan that hang the pensive head. And every flower that sad embroidery wears; B:d Amarantbiis ail bis beauty shed. And daffodillies till their cups with tears. To strew the laureate hearse where Lydd ites." Surely, no dreadful hintings of latter day floral hysteria disturbed the poet's vision; no fell portents of its undertaker's horrors in the way of floral 'tributes,'' and "emblems," and "offerings," of prim, milliner-like crosses, and wreaths and crowns, and sundry other nameless, innumerables "properties" of lugubri ous estheticism, each and all conspicu ously labeled with visiting card, and strung on the arm of the vampire-like attendants mortuary, and sometimes al most sufficating the officiating clergy then borne along in the hearse, in the undertakers' open wagons, in carriages after the dead, a bother, a nuisance, and positive torment at the grave side,- or the door of the waiting tomb surely the poet never suffered such unwhole some provisions, or Lycidas would have" been buried altogether after a different manner, and we should have lost the crowning elegiac in any language. "Please omit flowers," we may then understand, not as a repudiation of their silent, prescious ministry but a quiet declaration of the "reserved rights" of the sorrowful a claim that kindred hands shall provide all these half-sacred offices of floral ministry; an intimation that sympathy shall stop short of ofli ciousnes3 and that ostentatious conven tionalities shall not break in upon the privileged sorrows of bereavement. There is no vicarious expression of joy or grief. The florist cannot put into his constructions and designs the " elo quence of loving grief, with which the mother winds her few flowers for the adornment of her dead babe! From her hands they catch a language all hearts interpret, and no one misunderstands the mute elegy. We insist upon a rev erent recognition of this principle, and protest against the brassy, pitiless in trusion of traffic and conventionality. -Churchman. Tomato Catsup Tomato Sauce. The basis of tomato catsup, or ketch up, is the pulp of ripe tom itoes. ' Manv defer making catsup U!til late In the season, when the cool nights cause" the fruit to ripen slowly, and it may be it is gathered hurriedly for fear of a frost. The late fruit does not yield 30 rich a pulp as that gathered in "its prime. The' , fruit should nave all green portions cut out, and be stewed gently until thor oughly cooked. The pulp is then to be separated from the skins by rubbing through a wire sieve, so fine as to retain the seeds. The liquor thus obtained is to be evaporated to a thick pulp over a slow fire, and should be stirred to pre vent scorching. The degree of evapora tion will depend upon how thick it is desired to have the catsup. We prefer to make it so that it will just poiirfi'eely from the bottle. We ob servo m regular rule in flavoring. Use suni"ient sa?t. Son "itli cloviv, all spice and mace, bruised and tied in a clot!), and boiled in the pulp; add a small quantity of powdered cayenne. Some add the spices ground fine, direct ly to the pulp. A clove or garlic, bruis ed and tied in a cloth, to be boiled with the spices, imparts a delicious flavor. Some evaporate the pulp to a greater thickness than is needed, and then thin with vinegar or with wine. An excellent and useful tomato sauce may be made by preparing the pulp, aud putting it in small bottles while hot corked securely and sealed; if desired, the sauce may be salted before bottling, but this is not essential. To add to soups, stews, sauces, and made dishes, a sauce thus prepared is an excellent substitute for the fresh fruit. It should be put in small bottles, containing as much as will be wanted at once, as it will not keep long after opeuing.
