as the hoisting works are nearly
ready for business.
For one sheet of cake use one
generous pint of flour, half a pint
of milk, one gill of sugar, one egg,
two heaping teaspoonful of baking
powder, half a pint of blueberries
and two teaspoonsful of butter.
Mix the baking powder, sugar and
salt with the flour and rub through
a sieve; then work the butter
through the flour. Beat the egg
till light and add the milk to it.
Add this to the dry ingredient and
beat well. Now add the berries,
sterring as little as possible. Spread
tho mixture in a well buttered,
shallow baking pan having it about
an inch and a half thick. Bake in
a moderately quick oven for about
twenty-five minutes, and serve hot.
Pick off the stems and blossoms
of your gooseberries, wash them
and pour enough boiling water over
them to cover them. Let them
stand a few minutes and then drain
them. Line your pie-plates with
paste, fill them with the fruit, and
add three-quarters of a pound of
sugar to a pint of fruit. Dredgo
a little flour over the top and
cover, with a lid of paste, leave
an opening in the center to permit
the steam to escape, and bake them.
An agreeable change from the
usual manner of cooking is to make
into sausage. Take one pound of
beef, one quarter pound of suet,
chop it fine, and add a teaspoonful
of salt, a half teaspoonful pepper
and sage each; mix all thoroughly,
make into round cakes, dredge with
flour. Put two teaspoonful, of lard
or drippings into a pan, add a slice
of onion, cook until the onion turns
a delicate brown, then fry the cakes
quickly on both sides and serve hot.
Take ripo rasberries, put them in
a pan, ana mash them with a large
wooden spoon or masher. Strain
the juice through a jelly bag, and
to each pint of juice add ono pound
of loaf sugar and one quart of
vinegar. When the sugar has dis
solved place the whole over the fire
in a preserving kettle, and let it
boil a minute or two and skim it.
When cold bottle it, cork it well,
and it will be fit for use.
Warm and squeeze the berries,
add to each one quart of juice two
pounds of white sugar, one ounce
of powdered cinnamon, one-half
ounce of mace, four teaspoonfulls
of cloves. Boil together for half
an hour, strain, and to each quart
add two iarge wineglassfuls of French
brandy, then bottle tightly. This
is a pleasant, safe and efficient rem
edy, taken a tablespoonful at a
time, for diarrhoea.
Hashes, if we choose to call them,
are by no means inferior dishes if
they are properly made. ihey
must not be cooked long, but simply
heated through, and so delicately
seasoned that no one seasoning will
predominate. Onion, if used, must
be chopped very fine. More than
one kind of meat may be combined
if there is not enough of one kind
to makB the required quantity.
TO PRESERVE PEAS.
Shell the peas, wash and scald
them in hot water. Drain them
and put into bottles, filling up each
bottle with a strong brine of salt,
or ihto close-covered earthen crocks;
at the top of each bottle pour a thin
layer of salad oil. Cork and seal
the bottles, which must be quite
full, and stand upright.
The tough ends of sirloin steaks
and other pieces not fit for broiling
may be chopped, seasoned with Salt
and pepper, and a few bits of butter
and an onion, if liked. Put this in
a baking pan, covered with another,

twenty minutes. ,

STORY OF ft VIOLIN.
An Old Mnilclnn'. Ilarfaln with Coast
A Stniner violin wa sold in Lubeck
recently for $750. Early In this cen
tury It was purulinncd for $100, which
was then considered a high price for it.
Since that time, however, the Talue of
Staincr Instruments hns risen so re
markably that the price paid in Lubeck
Is regarded as phenomenally low.
The most costly Stainer in the world
was sold in 1791 for $6,000, under these
curious circumstances. The German
Count Wenzul Trauttmaosdorf enter
tained at his castle Emperor Charles
VI.. King Frederick William of Prussia
and other Princes of high and low
degree, such as flooded Germany in
those dissonant days. For their pleas
nre he had arranged violin concert by
Faustina and Mauro Alessi. Alesi
played on a wonderful Cremona in
strument so exquisitely that be moved
the Couut to tears. After the first con
cert the Count determined that he
must have the Cremona for his own
private concert master. Ue offered
fabulous sums for it, but Alessi said he
would sooner sell his life, and so the
negotiations came to naught
The rumor of the Count's attempt to
get the Cremona went abroad, and
some week later an unknown old man
appeared at the castle door with a
worn and shabby violin case under his
arm. The servants refused to admit
"Tell your master," he said to them,
"that heaven's music is waiting at bis
The Count received him. The old
man drew from the unworthy case a
perfect instrument, the work of Jacob
stainer's own hand, and played it so
marvellously that the Count and bis
people forgot all about the Cremona.
The old man was willing to let his in
strument go on the condition that' he
might pass the rest of his life near it
and play it once daily. The haggling
as to the price lasted for two weeks, at
the end of which the Count got the
Stainer by agreeing to give the old
man $150"in money at once, free food
and shelter for li'e, free light and
wood, one new suit of clothes annually
one-half a bnsbel of wheat and $b
monthly, all the bares be could eat, a
measure of wine daily, and two huge
barrels of beer every year. The old
man lived almost twenty years after
having made this contract, played al
most daily on his adored instrument
before the Count, and consumed fully
$6,000 worth of the Count's money and
provisions. Uis violin is still preserved
intacL It was last played in 1854, at
the marriage of the Emperor Fraoa
Josef of Austria.
The maker of all "Stainers," as well
as the father of the German violin, was
Jacob Stainer of Absnm, in TyroL He
lived from 1621 to 1683.
Cnoomfnrtablo Adrantarca or Two Ea
fll.h Ladle. In Uritlah India.
A journey from Calcutta to Jumal
ire. described in London Society
v an English lndv seems to have been
uncomfortably full of adventure and
variety. It was before the days of rail
ways in India, and she and her friend
were carried by natives in palanquins.
They were asleep, when suddenly
down went the palanquins on the
ground, and with shrieks of "Saarl
saar!" (tiger) the naMvos disappeared.
"Our lirst instinct was to lock the
outside door of our fragile fortress.
Bound the palanquin the creature kw
stalking, switching his tail against the
doors. Then he seemed to spring and
fall heavily on the roof.
' "Who could describe our awful
terror? What if the natives did not
return! We had no firearms and little
food. We dared not open tho aper
ture an inch for fresh air.
"The time wore on. Dawn came.
With the lirst glimmer of day hoarse,
uueartbly yells resounded close by,
and believing that all tho wild beasts
of the jungle were upon us, we gave
ourselves up for dead women.
"A trampling as of a million feet,
crowding and scuffling; then the light
grow red, as with a fearful jerk our
palanquins were pulled asunder, and
torches revealed the natives, who had
returned at last with a score of vil
lagers. They branisbed huge sticks,
and informed us by gestures that the
tiger bad bolted and that we were safe.
"At the bank of a river most ot our
natives disappeared again. After a
long half-hour they returned, with
several of the villagers, carrying large,
wide-mouthed earthern gurras,' or
pots. With a good deal of gesticula
tion we were made to comprehend that
there was only one niodo ot cross
ing the river. Frightened and norvous,

TALMACE'S BUSY WIFE.
4 Gllmpae ot tho Groat Fr.aeh.i'. Baal
"Mrs. Talmage is distinctly her hus
band's right hand, and all the details
pf his busy life are looked after by her,
lays Edward W. Bok tp The LadUf
Home Journal. She is a business
woman, having a rare executive abil
ity, capable of easily handling a num
ber of things at the same time. Much
of Dr. Talmage's daily work is planned
tnd laid out by her. She makes his
pastoral and social engagement, and
all his luring interests are In her
hands. ne know his capacities even
better than he. Whenever a loainoy
is to be made, It is she who lays out
the routo, procures the tickets and
tateroonis, and attends to all the de
tails. No public man, perhaps, is
saved so mauv annoyances as is Dr.
Talmage by his wife's foresight and
ability. The rear apartment of tho
econd floor is Mrs. Talmage's work
ing room. Il is tastefully furnished,
but more with an eye to utility than
ornamentation. In this room Mrs.
Talmage spends most of her time. It
is "her private den." All the mail
that is left at the house for Dr. Tal
mage is taken into this room and is
opened by ber. It is not an unusual
thing for the postman to deliver be
tween one and two hundred letters a
day, all of which pass through Mrs.
Talmage's hands. Business letters
aro answered by her, and all letters
that may be of an unpleasant or an
noying personal nature are destroyed.
Dr. Talmage never sees them.
A day in Mrs. Talmage's home
would be a revelation to those who be
lieve that the life of a public man's
wife is a succession of pleasures, dotted
here with a pretty compliment and
there with some token of honor. While .
many people are yawning and prepar
ing to break their night's rest Mrs.
Talmage is already up, opening the
first mail. Breakfast is promptly at
eight o'clock. Then the family sepa
rate and the wife begins to receive
callers which alone is a task. It is a
well-known saying among the neigh
bors that "the Talmage bell is never
still." All kinds of people mast be
seen, innumerable appointments made
and kept, the pastoral work of the
largest church in America must be
looked after, tho details of a score or
more missionary, church, literary so
cieties with which Mrs. Talmage, or '
her husband, is connected, havo their
demands, and, iu nddition to all these,
are the household cares of a large
house and a family of growing chil
dren. All the appointments of the
Talmage homo in Brpoklyn reflect the
woman who presides over it. Gandi
ness in furniture or decorations is ab
sent, and. instead, ono sees a harmony
of good taste on every hand. Mrs.

CARE OF BEDDING.
It Should Rre.lTO a Grant D.nl Mora Ah

There are very few people who take
proper care of bedding, says the N. Y.
Tribune. In the nature of things, it is
not possible without a great expense to
have the covering of mattresses and
pillows frequently rcuewed; therefore,
every pains should be taken to keep
them fresh. It is a common thing to
leave rooms which are unoccupied fit

sheets and bed covering on the bed.
In this way the bed gathers dampness
In a cold, tin aired room for a long
time, and the most serious conse
quences may result to the lirst unfort
unate gnest who occupies that room.
Whenever a room is unoccupied for
any length of time the bedclothes
should be put away in the linen-closet,
aud the mattresses lifted up from the
bedstead so the air can strike it on all
sides. It is a moment's work to dust
tho bedstead, replace the mattress and
make up the bed with thoroughly aired
bedclothes, nnd tho refreshment that
is experienced from a sleep on such a
bed compared with thu nightmare of
an experience iu a room where the
beddiug has not been niieil for per
haps six mouths more than pays for
the trouble. It is a positive injury to
a good hair mattress to keep it without

In this way the mattruss is completely
protected from dust aud from contact

cover should be removed and washed.
In the same way i cover should be

Every mattress in regular use should
be turned at least once a week. For
this reason a mattress with a wool top
or hair top and husk, excolsior or some
inferior material should be avoided.
It is better to have the mattress of all
husk or any material, but alike on both
sides, and have an extra pad or thin
piece made to lay over it to make it '
soft. Nothing is more uncomfortable
than a cotton top; thereforo, no mat
