LACE CLEANING. Plain Description of Sereral Prac tical l'rocesnes. Lace Is now so profusely used that the woman who understands the art of Its renovation is fortunate. Modern Priscllla reveals some of the cleansing processes adapted to this delicate fab ric, as follows: To wash lace successfully plenty of time and great care are necessary. There are Instances where hurried work Is followed by success, but the chances ore against it. A battenberg doily became soiled in the making, so the maker rubbed white soap on it, thrust it in a basin of hot water and rubbed it vigorously between her liands until all trace of soil was gone. She then pulled it out Into shape, placed it between two towels and roll ed It up. When nearly dry, she ironed it, still between the towels, and, 6trange to say, that doily showed no bad results from its rough treatment. But such a case is rare and is also unfortunate, as it may lead to careless ness in accomplishing a work that should receive the most careful treat ment Should all that is necessary to clean a piece of lace is to lay it be tween two sheets of white or blue pa per, first sprinkling it well with pow 1 dered magnesia. Then place it be tween the leaves of a book and allow it to remain for several days. When the magnesia is shaken out, the lace will be found to be very greatly improved. Lace placed between sheets of blue pa per will keep white longer than wheE placed between white paper or laid away in a box. When actual washing is necessary, take a glass whose body is as nearly cylindrical as possible. Half fill this with sand or water to prevent the wa ter when boiling from tossing the bot tle about too violently in the kettle. Very carefully wind the lace around this bottle and cover it with a layer of cheesecloth or muslin. A still better way is to baste the lace smoothly and exactly on a piece of cheesecloth, then wind it securely around the bottle and cover the whole with another layer of the cheesecloth. Into a granite saucepan put some cold water, a small piece of white soap and if the lace is very dirty a pinch of salt Into this plunge the lace wound bottle and let the water come to a boil. As the water gets dirty pour it off and replace with more cold water and soap. Continue this treatment until the boil ing water remains perfectly clean. Then remove the bottle and plunge into a basin of clean, cold water and rinse thoroughly. Allow the lace to remain on the bottle until it is dry, then re move it and separate from the cheese cloth. When real lace has become stained or greasy from wear, place it in a bath of pure olive oil and allow It to remain for several hours or even a day or two. This gives to the lace the softness of texture it possessed when new. After this is accomplished wind the lace on the bottle and proceed with the boiling, as already described. When the lace is too large to wind around a bottle, baste it evenly and se curely to a piece of cheesecloth, with small stitches in parallel lines across the surface of the lace. Baste another piece of cheesecloth over it and boil in a series of waters. After the rinsing, which must be accomplished by press ing and squeezing, but never by wring ing, pin the cloth upon which the laee is basted smoothly to a sheet stretched in curtain frames or if this Is Impossi ble to a sheet stretched and pinned over a carpet. Allow the lace to dry and then remove from the sheet and from the two layers of cheesecloth. Charm of Manner. Charm of manner is made up usually of gracious observances of small court esies. Heredity is unrelenting, and charm is a great birthright, but when these qualities are lacking attention, effort and, above all things, desire may overcome tremendous barriers. Though society may do without a good heart, it will not dispense with that appear ance of it which we call amiability of manner. This amiability may not al ways give that illusive something known as charm, but charm never ex ists when It is absent. Simple flattery is not pleasing, but the actual making one do his best, and not alone thinking he is doing it, may be. Unselfishness is the root and spawn of all gracious oess. One of the greatest secrets of charm Is charitableness and scrupu lousness In Imputing motives to those Who Interfere with our even way. Wit and eloquence fall flat when unkindly leveled at the weak and defenseless, concludes The Household. A Convenient Pantry Arrangement The cut, from Farm Journal, shows a Bet of V shapodr bins placed un- der the broad shelf of the pan try dresser, in which flour, sug ar, graham and Indian meal and often bulky ar ticles may be kept. Each bin swings on a screw pivot at each side In the lowest point of the V. The ad vantage and v shaped dins, convenience of such receptacles are too appareut to need comment T.Ktc Balls For Soup.

Just see that small boy walking down the street; He feels he's a man from his head to his feet; He's no time to notice those other small lads Except condescendingly call, "Hello, Tads!" He's wearing bis first suspender. His hands in his pockets, his hat't on one side, His head is thrown back with an air of high pride; He can feel the red stripes where the braces di vide; He's forgotten he ever played marbles or cried. He has on his first suspenders. Papa observes him with nod and with smile, Itciuemberintr old "bygones," he muses awhile On his barefooted days And the old fashioned ways And the joy of his first suspenders. John Clark Rlilpath. To the lorn ones who loved him first and best And knew his dear love at its tenderest We seem akin we simplest friends who knew His fellowship of heart and spirit, too; We who have known the happy summertide Of his ingenuous nature, glorified With the inspiring smile that ever lit The earnest face and kindly strength of it. His presence, all commanding, as his thought Into unconscious eloquence was wrought Until the utterance became a spell. What awed us as a spoken miracle. Leaning to him, was native was, in truth, The earliest playmate of his lisping youth; Likewise throughout a life of toil and stress It was as laughter, health and happiness. And so he played with it, joyed at its call. Ran rioting with it, forgetting all Delights of childhood and of age and fame, A devotee of learning, still the same. In fancy even now we catch the glance Of the rapt eye and radiant countenance, As when his discourse, like a woodland stream, Flowed musically on from theme to theme. The skies, the stars, the mountains and the sea He worshiped as their high divinity. Nor did his reverent spirit find one thing On earth too lowly for his worshiping. The weed, the rose, the wildwood or the plain, The teeming harvest or the blighted grain, All, all were fashioned beautiful and good; As the soul saw the senses understood. Thus broadly based, his spacious faith and lovt i Unfolded all below as all above; Nay, e'en if overmuch he loved mankind, He gave his love's vast largesse as designed. Therefor, in fondest, faithful service he Wrought ever bravely for humanity. Stood flt't of heroes for the Right allied, Foes cvwi grieving when (for them) he died. This w.i the man we loved, are loving yet, And still shall love while longing eyes are wet With selfish tears that well were brushed away, Remembering the smile of yesterday. For, even as we knew him, smiling still, Somewhere beyond all earthly ache or ill He waits, with the old welcome; just as when We met him smiling we will meet again. James Whitcomb Riley. The Captive Bird. Oh, hapless captive, held by prison bars, From all of joy and hope in life apart. Once of the free and joyous woodland throng That fills the fragrant air with vibrant song From palest dawn till waking of the stars, Dost thou BtiU hold the image in thins heart Of all those lovely scenes the budding flower, In fragrant meadow, where the zephyr swayed The crimson clover to the wand'ring bee; The glory of the bloom crowned apple tree Where, hid from ruthless gaze in April hour, To thy dear mate thy trysting vows were made? Oh, tell me, captive with the mournful lay, That well might touch e'en stoic's heart to hear, Doth memory's torment follow also thee? Is that the secret of the dews 1 see Upon thine eye; that gaze so far away. As If through walls of granite thou couldst peer? Does still the image of thy gentle mate Dwell in thy soul, with whom thou e'er didst fly ith each recurring spring to seek again That loved spot where hope and joy did reign. Where near the downy nest thou didst await With swelling song thy tender brood's first cryf Ah, surely this the secret font must be Of that supernal pathos in thy song That floods my sou) with wistful memories Of lost delights, as Hoods the twilight breeze, The swaying pines with mournful harmony, Who6e sobbing chords to spirit choirs belong.

To drain a wet strip two to four rods wide a Rural New Yorker writer ad vises: First, see that you have n good outlet for the water; second, dig a narrow ditch along the center of the wet strip deep enough to drain the land, say three to four feet, according to the na ture of the soil. If It is liable to settle down much after the water Is drawn LAYING A TILE DRAIN. off, It should be deeper than It would otherwise. Trim the bottom of the ditch carefully to a true grade. A string stretched over the center of the ditch Is a very efficient help In getting both line and grade. The line of the tile should be as straight as the circumstances will per mit and the tile laid to a true grade, which may be ascertained exactly by measuring down from the string. A Bag In the tile is sure to be filled with silt sooner or later, destroying its use fulness. I would not use smaller than four Inch tile. If there are springs, they must be provided for. When the bottom of the ditoh is very truly and carefully brought to grade, the tile may be laid end to end along the bottom, the joints covered with an inverted sod to keep loose dirt out and the ditch filled up.

Price 25 How to Attain Old Age. Cf the giving of recipes for longevi ty there Is apparently no end. Every man or woman who has reached out far beyond the Allotted threescore years and ten Is made the subject of an entertaining argument to prove the points of this or that contender. Every abnormality In the shape of strength of arm, of back, of general system, is used as an Illustration of the virtues of this or that system of exercise or living. It Is the opinion of a good many laymen that mankind does entirely too much thinking on the subject of how to live to a ripe old age. Less worry on this point might lead to the desired result. But there never will lie less worry. Even now the list of systems for pro longation of man's days is being aug mented. The very latest suggestion comes from a physician of credit and renown. He thinks that there Is a very great deal of benefit or of injury in the wearing of certain kinds of clothing. According to this authority, the wearing of flannel next the skin i. Immensely injurious to the general run of men and women. Cotton is king, in his opinion. For summer wear he suggests a calico shirt, while balbrig gan cotton Is his idea of winter cov ering. The main point of his theory is the necessity of wearing always the same kind of material next the skin, whether this be of linen, cotton or wool. Outdoor exercise is highly recom mendedthat is, if cycling be except ed. Wheeling Is not considered a sane performance by this judge. An Iowa Farmer Tells Some Inter' eating; Experiences. The question Is often asked, "Does crosr breeding weaken or strengthen oirr stock?" Some think that the cross breeding of swine is one cause jf swine diseases, such as cholera, thumps, etc., writes John II. Cu. 1 of Iowa in The Prairie Farmer. Others think that cross breeding has a, tendency to de stroy the size of the offspring. I am not as old as some who give their ex perienee on such subjects, neither have I made farming my business from boy bood, but from my personal experience and knowledge I find In many cases that cross breeding strengthens not on ly In regard to health, but in general endurance. The mule is by far the su perior of the horse when it comes to hardiness, strength and stamina. have never owned a bunch of pure bred hogs of any of the many breeds, and yet I have owned and cared for hogs for 40 years, and I have never had a case of hog cholera and frequently had a herd of 75 or 100 on the place while cholera was raging all around. do not mean, however, to advance cross breeding as a preventive of swine plague. I attribute my escape to the fact that I allow nature to take its course in re gard to the wishes of my hogs. They like freedom, and I give It; they like to root, and I have usually allowed it, but to the detriment of my pasture. Above all, through the hot weather they like the wallow and shade. This is a point upon which I lay great stress. Give the hog plenty of clear water to drink plenty of blue grass or clover pasture and a good wallow and do not give any sour swill, and there will be less com plaint in regard to cholera. In regard to crossing to improve the size of the hog, many breeders of pure breeds may differ with me when I make the assertion that many are find ing that a pure bred Chester Whit boar crossed with a Poland-China or some other good breed of sow makes larger hogs than when bred to one of its own breed, but such Is the case, Last January I turned a pure bred Chester boar In with three Duroc Jer scys, three grade Polands and one black Essex. They were all about alike In size and bone. The Essex showed the best pigs from the start up to the present time. The next best are those of the Poland. I could not be induced to cross with the Duroc again, as the size Is not there. I am not mapping out a line of breeding for any one to fol low, but only giving my experience. with no theory. Some of the best cat tle for feeding purposes are crosses be tween the Hereford and the Shorthorn, so say many feeders, but there are ex ceptions In all cases. I would like to see pure bred stock of all kinds kept on the farm, because there is money In the business If con ducted In an up to date manner. How ever, we cannot all be breeders of pure bred stock for the purpose of supplying the demand hi that line, but. we can breed up and improve all kinds of live stock. In swine breeding never cross but once. One of the greatest draw' backs In the cross breeding of swine Is being obliged to get new sows and get rid of the old ones. My experience teaches me to keep the old boar and the old sow as long as possible, as the offspring will be stronger, the number greater and the care of the mother su perlor to that of the gilt. I have refer red to the different kinds of stock that have come under my observation for the purpose of showing that pure bred stock of one strain are not always the largest and best for feeding purposes, When They Slay Be Made Cseful.

About one week ago your agent wished me to try a No. 6 U. S. and I let him set in a machine. I have given both machines a fair trial and have bought the U. S. The U. S. turns one-third easier than the DeLaval and I found the DeLaval did not run up to its rated capacity, while the U. S. overrun its capacity. The U.
