THE HOUSEHOLD.
Car) of tho Piano-The Poster Pillow
Novelty-Lemon Pies That Never
Fall-A Change In Shade.
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.

than both is the attention to food and
hygienic living which does away with
the necessity of any such heroic dosing.

HUMOR OF THE HOUR.
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.

A big reward has been offered for the

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

"No," sho answered, "I wouldn't."

Oems of Verse For Little Folks.
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

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.
