Absalom Ashb.v was much

Rave liim is copy of "Joe Miller's .Test

find something new in it."
The next time he met the old gentle

"I don't know who that 'ere .Toe Mil

The original schedules of the (irst
census are now contained in twenty
six bound volumes, preserved in the
Interior department. For the most
part the headings of the schedules
were written in by hand. Indeed, up
to and including 1X20 the assistant
marshals generally used such paper as
they happened to have, ruling it, writ
ing in the headings and binding the
sheets together themselves. In some
cases merchants' account paper was
used, and now and then the schedules
were hound inside of a newspaper.—

Today is the time to pursue fortune.
The hour at hand is the one to make
use of and the chances within our
J5TSISP—those we should seize. "To
morrow" is never here, and putting off
the good we may have for a question
able future is not the best wisdom.
Therefore, use today. Ho the kindness
before you, the duty nearest you, and
tomorrow will take care of itself.

A Hessian lieutenant of the name of
Ludwig von Siegen noticed the effect
of the dew upon his gun barrel, which
had become rusted from the dampness.
Some time after he experimented upon
the
discovery and obtained what is
-now known as inezzotinto. In the year
he engraved a portrait of Princess
Amelia of llcsse by its application.

fv.eet almond oil ruMied into tlio
hands will keep them soft.
An invigorating tonic bath is pre
pared by soaking several sli:-s of lem
on or limes in the bath water for an
hour, then adding a handful of bran.
Varnish stains 011 the hands should
be rubbed with a little methylated
spirit, then .viped dry and iinally
washed thorv-ighly with soap and wa
ter.
A little cold cream put on with a face
rag or soft cloth is a good substitute
for soap and water. It keeps the skin
smooth and soft, at the same time
cleansing it effectively.
For a mouth wash take a teaspoon
ful of powered borax and a tabjespoon
fill of pure glycerin and add cold wa
ter. Keep covered, and it will last for
several days, when it may lie rent-wed.
T'se every morning before brushing the
teeth.
Rinsing the face and hands thor
oughly after washing is quite as im
portant as the washing itself, if the
people who make beauty a study are
to be believed. The soap must be got
out of the pores or it will roughen
and dry the skin and often aggravate
the tendency to blackheads.
A Clean Sink.
When I lirst set up housekeeping, I
resolved to have a sink that was "clean
enough to eat out of," says a writer in
Good Housekeeping. At first this
seemed almost impossible, because of
the soot from the kettles and the
scraps from the dishwater. But I
bought two wire meat racks, a funnel
which fitted exactly Into the drain and
a strainer which litted exactly into the
funnel. The strainer should be of tin,
as the wire gauze is too fine and does
not wear well. The meat racks should
have little legs at the corners which
keep them well above the surface of
the sink. All ilie pots, kettles, etc.,
even to the dislipan. are set en these
gratings, and all the dishwater is
poured into the strainer when the dish
es are done. I empty the scraps from
the strainer, and with a fresh pan of
hot water I rinse off the grates and
the funnel, wipe them, tip my water in
the sink, and with a few strokes of a
small brusiii the sink is immaculate.
A Laundry Convenience.
A rather stilt' brush about four and a
half inches long, without counting the
length of the handle, and two or three
Inches wide is a convenient article in
the laundry outfit. Corsets and flan
nels are much more easily scrubbed
clean with a brush than rubbed clean
on a board. Flannels of pure wool
which are not rubbed, but scrubbed
with a brush, using water softened
with ammonia or borax and a white
nonresinous soap, will not shrink and
grow hard if they are dried 011 a firm
wooden frame, ltubbing all wool flan
nel 011 a board causes the ultimate
spiral fibers of the wool to become en
tangled and shrink. This cannot hap
pen when a flannel is scrubbed with a
brush. The dirt is also more easily re
moved from the interstices of the cloth
by using the brush. Hard water and
resinous brown soaps cause flaunel to
be hard.
Do Not Wear What Is Unbecoming.
It is quite absurd to wear what is
fashionable, but unbecoming. The first
duty of a woman in dress is to look
well, and it does not come within her
obligation to be a mere block for the
display of her dressmaker's inventions.
The modistes, the manufacturers and
the tradesmen are responsible for a
constant change of fashions in order to
keep their business successful, but it is
110 part of a lady's duty to devote her
self to their encouragement. Indeed,
the best born of her sex, as a rule (for
there are exceptions to every rule),
keep to one style of clothes and modes
which suit them and change them only
a little as the time goes 011.
Set tbc Bed Anay From the Wall.
Where shall we set the bed? Away
from the wall and so arranged that we
may go all around it without moving
for health's sake and convenience In
making. Physicians tell us that It Is
very unhealthy to sleep near the wall,
on account of dampness for one thing,
and another tiling more serious is that
one's breath Is thrown back to be in
haled again. An instance is related
where a severe morning headache was
cured permanently by simply moving
the bed from near the wall Into the
middle of the room.
