It is necessary to begin at Uie top of the span-, at the frieze ir possi ble, and lay the tucks deep enough to hold up photogiaphs. These tucks should be tacked with brass ueaueu tacks to keep them iu place and the silk drawn tightly across the space. l'hls Is n pretty decoration, even with but a few pictures.

New York Herald. True i:'oll-iiee of Hread. The excellence of bread In all Its varieties, ida in or sweetened, depends on the perfection of Its air cells, whether produced by yeast, egg or ef fervescence. One of the chief objects of baking is to lix those air cells, and the quicker this can be done through the whole mass the letter will be the result. When cake or bread Is made heavy by baking too quickly, It Is be cause the immediate formation of the top crust hinders the exhaling of the moisture in the center and prevents the air cells from cooking. The weight also of the crust pressing down on the doughy air cells below destroys them, producing that horror of good cooks, a heavy streak. The problem in baking, then, is the quick application of heat rather below than above the loaf and its steady continuance till all the air cells are thoroughly tilled into perma nent consistency.

They will be sure to stain It. Damp bran or newspapers damp ened and torn will answer the purpose Sweep the way of the nap of the car pet. Never shake rugs from the end. Too much weight comes on them, and they are liable to be torn or strained Shake them from the edges. Turn them face downward to be swept, or the dust will be ground Into them. Salt used on a carpet collects damp ness and rusts the tacks. HonaekeeiilnK Hints. Clam shells are more convenient for scraping pots and kettles than a knife.

A woman's words arc not always an advertisement of what Is in a woman's It Didn't Matter. A bluff old farmer with a load Tolce got tu at a little station and walked down the aisle looklug for a friendly face or a kindly eye, but not eeelug any he asked the most sour looking man on the car to move over ana gfte him a seat. Tho fellow did bo, but with a manner that Indicated that the old man was anything but welcome. The old farmer wanted to talk, and tried in every way to en gage his seat mate in conversation, but the through passenger would have none of it. He turned his shoulder to the farmer and gazed out of the win dow with a bored expression on his face. The old farmer was determined to draw him out, and after several In effectual efforts raised his voice loud enough to be heard all over the car and said: "I killed a hog yesterday for my winter's meat How much d'ye think he weighed?" The through passenger looked worse bored than ever, but finally said, "I don't know anything about hogs." "Oh, w.dl, you might make a guess." Well, say 3X." "No, he didn't weigh that much. Guess again." "Well, I'll say 200." "Too high. He wasn't as heavy as that. Make another guess." "I'm not good at guessing. How much did he weigh, anyhow?" "Well, you have bad two guesses. Hut you see he wasn't much of a hog, and 1 didn't weigh him." Indianapolis Sentinel. She'll Never Tell. The last act was Just closing at the Lyceum the other evening, and the actors and actresses were grouping for their final bow ensemble. In the house the ladles were putting on their gloves and getting their hats ready. A young man and a young lady well toward the front overheard this conversation: "Why, Mary. I'm afraid I can't get these on. They're awfully tight." "Oh, yes you can, Nell. Try again." Nell evidently tried agalu. for there was silence for a moment. "What shall I do? I can't get them on. That's what comes of wearing new shoes to tho theater. They hurt me so that I simply had to take them off, and now they won't go on again. Oh"- The remainder of the agony was lost in the applause which greeted the fall of the curtain. All that history records of the denouement of the Interesting story Is that a woman was noticed go ing down the aisle with a pair of shoes under her arm. Whether she and Nell were one aud the same Is not certain. If so, how sin? got out of the difficulty is not told. It was raining, and per haps she wore her rubbers, mil tins only she and her friend Know, ana ii Is safe to say that she at least will never tell. Detroit Free Press.

"We dine," he said. once a year with the president and that is all. On other days we take our dinner together and discuss at tame the questions which are argued before us.

Here the Judge paused, as If think ing the net of mortification tie nau mentioned placed too severe a tax upon human credulity, and presently added: "What I say about tfie wine, sir, gives ou our rule, but It does sometimes happen that the chief Jus tice will say to me when the cloth Is removed. 'Brother Story, step to the window and see If It does not look like rain.'

You women always love to have con venient places In which to store things, and you shall therefore have closets to burn, but after this hands off." A mansion built after the sugges tions of n bloomer Is a fearful and wonderful thing. It generally looks well on the outside, but tho interior gives you the headache. "What woman built this house?" said a scornful friend as he went over a newly purchased residence with the owner. "What woman!" said the latter.
