It is well to MiiiH'tinu'U rub tho wires if a piano pt utly with a chamois or a dauut'l cloth and to pass a soft musliu aver tho BoumliiiK. tnanl Ly means of a slender point, which will blip between the wires and miphru the cloth, which may then be curt fully moved over the eurfaco, taking olf tho dutit. A steel crochet hook or a btout knitting needle will answer the purpose. It is advisable to keep, a little cam phor num inside tho case, for if the moth miller has been attracted by tho felt used in various parts, it will servo as a means of protection against the moth. Tho temperature of tho room hhould bo moth rate and as even as may bo. Kxtreme beat that is drying bhould always Lo avoided, as when a piano stands, as is often tlio case, too near a stove, a register or a grato tire. An in strument should be opened for a short timo each day; if it is not much used, this is especially desirable. Often there appears a sort of bloom upon tho case or the wood looks dingy and seems to bo in need of cleaning. It is, however, very uncertain work to at tempt to improve the hue finish of a piano with polish, so much of which is advertised as making a piano look liko new. Instead the method recommended and used by a professional tuner is one that may bo safely tested, with tho cer tainty that it wiJl not bo the means of gathering additional dust, as oils and polishes are apt to do. Take tho iinect toilet soap and luko warni water and wash a little of tho pi ano at a time, as you would wash a boy's dirty face, using a soft cloth, such as canton flannel, working upon a space not larger than your hand. Wipe it olT with clear water and rub well with clean canton flannel until it is perfectly dry and well polished. The fine soap suds does not atl'ect tho xjriginal finitdi in tho hast, but simply removes that which obscures it, and if rubbed abso lutely dry with a brisk motion tho re sult is that the piano is cleaned and brightened. Enid E. 1'euuett in Wom an's Homo Companion. The Poster Pillow Is the Thlnsr. Poster pillows are a novelty growing from the poster idea which they imi tate. To make one, select a largo design of two or three colors at most, one for tho ground and two for tho figures. Traco the figures on tuir, cut them out and apply them to a plain ground with couching or buttonholing. If lines nro necessary for expression, uso outline stitch. The materials can bo of tho cheapest, or may be velvet and satin, according to preference, but tho work is intended to be effective more than ele gant, just as lu sters aro a cheap form of good art. Poster pillows aro good for students' rooms, for yachts and country houses and mako appropriate presents for nu n. -Harper's Uazar. Sure Thin? In Lemon Pies. A recipe for lemon pie that never fails of approval calls for one teacupful of sugar, one tablespoonf ul (scant) of butter, twotggs, juice and grated rind of one lemon, ono teacupful of boiling water, one tablespoonful of cornstarch dissolved in cold water. Stir tho corn starch into tho hot water, add tho butter and sugar, and cook until clear, taking care that it does not scorch. Kemovo to edge of tho range, add tho well beaten yolks of the eggs and the lemon and put in shell of paste, already baked. Whip tho whites stiff, adding two tablespoon fuls of sugar and a few drops of lemon juice, spread over the pio and brown in a slow oven. A Chance at Last.

Olaas Medicine Spoons. (Jlass spoons are sold at the drug stores for tho taking of medicines which may tarnish silver. I'etter, however, than these are tho glass tubes which keep such powerful drugs away from the teeth as well, and better perhaps than both is the attention to food and hygienic living which does away with the necessity of any such heroic dosing.

When the swell riding club from the city went way up into (Jaloon township to ride to bounds and incidentally fol low tho course of a fox, it arranged with old Josh Parkens to provide the fox. He was offered liberal pay for at tending to this preliminary, but be de clared that bo was somning of a fox chaser himself and would call it squaro If they'd let him jine" in tho sport There was no good reason to offer for barring him, and tho committeo satis fled its conscience by telling him to be on hand half an hour later than the time really fixed for making tho cross country dash. Sore enough, tho hounds were giving tongue, and tho ladies and gentlemen in their gay attires were just beginning to form a procession which grows from the bunch in which they start, when old Josh burst with a whoop from a thicket on tho side. He was on a raw boned mount that had a wonderful gift of shuffling over ground and carried a six foot rifie of the olden times. Ho went after tho fox at an angle that compelled it to cover about two rods to his one, and before the riders could prevent ho had ended the sport by putting an ounce of lead through tho game. There were some vigorous protests against this mode of foxhunting, which put a stop to tho fun just as it com menced, but Josh only said: "What was them city swells huntin a fox fur if it warn't to git 'im? I knocked him over cold afore all them women folks, an tho other fellers was jealous. Every ono of 'em had gone huntin 'ithout his gun. I never see nuthiu like it since I was born." Detroit Free Press. War News From Billville. Tho war fever is still in our midst, tnd tho doctors aro prescribing lead cap sules once a day. A big reward has been offered for the escaped private who was to have been commanded by the colonels of Eillvillo. They had him in a secure place, but ho broke through and got away in the night. Jiillville shows up well in tho war department. All tho men who owed money iu the town have enlisted, and all their creditors followed suit iu or der to bo near them on pay day. Tho (Jeorgia candidates only ask tho government to suspend hostilities until after the election. Coming from a can didate, this request is reasonable enough. Heretofore they have been wanting tho earth. Colonel Jones has had his right arm cut off in an unpatriotic sawmill. This, of course, lets him out of tho army. He is now at home, receiving the con gratulations of his friends. Atlanta Constitution. She Was Absorbed.

The Blue Lino street car stopped at the corner, ami an anxious looking wo tnau put a small boy inside. "Now, V)b," sho said as sho hurried out to th platform again, "don't lose that noto I gave you. Don't tako it out of your pocket at all." "No'm," said tho little man, looking wistfully after his mother as the con ductor pulled the strap. "What's your name, Pob?" asked a mischievous looking young man sitting beside him. "Robert Cullen Deems, "bo replied. "Where aro you going?" "To my grandma's." "Let mo seo that note in your pocket. " Tho look of innocent surprise in tho round face ought to have shamed tho boy's tormentor, but ho only said again, "Let mo see it." "I tan't," said Robert Cullen Deems. "t?eo here, if you don't I'll scare tho horses and mako them run away." Tho littlo boy cast an appreheusivo look at the horses. "Here, Hob, I'll givo you this peach if you'll pull that noto half way out ol your pocket." Tim boy did not reply, but some of tho older people looked angry. "I say, chum, I'll givo you this whole bag of peaches if you will just show mo tho corner of your noto," said the tempter. Tho child turned away as if ho did not wish to hear any more, but tho young man opened tho bag and held it just where ho could seo and smell the luscious fruit. A look of distress camn into tho boy's faco; I believe J Job was afraid to trust himself, and when a man left his seat on tho other end to get off tho car tho little boy slid quickly down, left the temptation behind and climbed into tho vacant place. A pair of prettily gloved hands began almost unconsciously to clap, and then everybody clapped and applauded until it might have alarmed Hob if a young lady sitting by bad not slipped her arm around him and said: "Tell your mamma that wo all con gratulate her upon having a littlo man strong enough to resist temptation and wise enough to run away from it. " Digging Ditches. Child Life In China. Wo have all heard, in a general way, of tho cruelty of tho Chinese in sum marily disposing of their diseased chil dren and girl balies. Just how much truth there may bo in such stories wo have probably never taken tho trouble to inquire, but now comes a traveler from tho land of slanting eyes and pig tails whose account of tho attitude of Chinese parents toward their offspring is quite at variance with somo of tho things wo have heard. Ho says that tho littlo Chinese are the objects of unlim ited parental devotion; especially do tho fathers love their littlo ones and lavish upon them many caresses. The babies are pretty creatures and bright and intelligent. Many of tho children attend tho American mission schools, and parents of tho heathen faith, says our informant, allow their children to go to tho "white devils" because of tho advantage they gain in learning Eng lish. Ho does admit, however, that the littlo girls iu China aro less happy than tho boys, being compelled, much as they are iu our own country among tho lower classes, to carry about with them a great baby, who is moro of a weight than their littlo arms and body can rightly support. Truth. Where Mushrooms Grow. Shikoku island, Japan, is famous for its mushrooms as well as for its great camphor product. During the year lhli.l this littlo island shipped 1,780,71)7 pounds of mushrooms to China and other countries. Tho mushrooms aro chiefly grown in oak logs, which aro cut from trees over 25 years old. When tho trees are cut down, incisions are made in tho bark at intervals of three to four inch es. Tho trunks aro then cut into logs four or five feet iu length, and tin so are distributed iu dark parts of the for est. After the logs have lain three years mushrooms begin. to grow where tho in cisions were made iu the bark. As fast as tho mushrooms aro plucked new ones appear in their places, aud this contin ues till tho log is exhausted, when it is replaced by a new one. Chicago Rec ord. Dolly Takes Tea.

Not successful in this role, be ran away with madame'i pot femmo do chambre and later turned up at tho Nouveau Cirque as a clown. Chocolat is tho blackest interpreta tion of amgroon record, tho darkest, jolliest translation of laughter extant, lie is the most famous black clown in Christendom and tho only ono I know whoso faco is made up for him by Prov idence without tho addition of acceu tuatul lines of exaggerated paint. There aro two Chccolats in tho ring and out. In, ho is got up in white duck or flannel, ridiculously cut in exagger ated parody of the latest fashion, with white cotton gloves, every linger of which is stretched wide apart from its fellow aud used as a means if express ing the most ridiculous sentiments in tho most unheard of way. He does not do the funny clown who antics eternal ly and whom wo all so well know. On tho contrary, his rolo is to pretend to bo fearfully awkward and stumble over everything in and out of sight exhaust ively, to the uproarious delight of all tho small and largo boys in tho delight ed audienco. Out of tho ring ho is tho successful negro, full of mischief aud jokes and dandyism and vanity and ingenuous ness and good nature. Ho puts his hat on tho back of his head at tho races, liko any other man, aud, his thumbs in his armpits, struts from tho tribune to tho betting stalls, with a cigar between bis lips and a benign smile for his ad mirers. Then there is Foot tit, famous for in venting new situations and conducting tlSem from the old standpoint, which admits of bad French TA iglais, bad jokes ad libitum and Ik ;se play, with a round up of somethin i ':.lly clever. Somersaults with Foottit have develop ed into things of beauty nud infinite re dundancy forever, and with his litilo red eyes and his long nose and his clown's get up, with its grotesque but tons and short waisted opportunities fully lived up to, ho is as delicious as his littlo cardboard prototypes in tho shop windows. In privato life Mr. Foottit is noted for his weakness for his friends' wives plus his own; but4 regrettable though it may be, this trait of his thus far has only served to augment his fame. Last summer ho fled tho town with a lady who jumped through rings for a livelihood, which probably explained her carelessness as to tho necessity of a ring in private life. Then there is Medrano. He is ring master at present. Raised from tho ranks of ticket seller and general facto tum, ho cracks jokes nightly iu public with Chocolat and Foottit. His fame fell in this wise: Tho Baron do Reinach of Panama faino, who was noted for his affection for circus riders and coryphees, used him at a fancy ball oddly enough. Tho ball in question was given at one of the most elaborato fin do sieclo houses in Paris. It was a fairy set no. Electric light and flowers and money and human nature filled up the gap matin I y those who "refuso to bo present for reasons which were ob vious. " Tho ball was over. Shepherdesses and Mario Antoinettes and (lermau ofli ci rs and vivandieres and queens and gypsies, one and all had removed their inaks and were striving to cool off in tho giant conservatories, whoso foun tains played perfumed water, when a clow n sprang into tho room. Rut such a clown flashing with dazzling jewels, clothed iu cloth of gold and brocade, stiffened with magnificent embroidery and precious stones, but masked; a dream of a clown, who leaped and whirled and turned gigantic somersaults and stole innumerable kisses, then olf again, iu and out between tho flowers and tho electric lights, into tho shadow again, with diabolical gestures of exag gerated importance and littlo fine sug gestions of indescribable charm and gractt, dodging hen; and there until they all went mad over him, and, liko a flock of varicolored sheep, followed him from room to room, begging him to re move his mask, but he would not. He eluded them again and again, and final ly, when they were roused to a frenzy of excitement and curiosity, ho led them to tho flower twisted staircase, upon which the tapestried walls frowned, uud just as they had their arms about his neck and were asking riotously, "Who are you oh, who are you, pretty clown?" bo once more slipped from their grasp, and, with a flashing leap through tho vitiated air, disappeared. Later, as they sat down to supper, ho appeared among them without his mask. It was tho Haron do Reinach. Later still all Paris rang with tho news of his suicide, which Panama dis closures induced, and then Medrano re marked to a fiieud: "There were two of us that night. I was tho clown who executed tho pirouettes. Ho went in aft erward. Ho hired two costumes exactly alike and gavo mo my orders. 'Twas my last appenranco in that capacity. If bo had paid mo by check, instead of iu bank notes, who knows, mon Dieu, but I, too, might have become iuvolved 'in Panama?' " Exchange. The Oldest Newspaper.
