AN ECONOMICAL WIFE.
We had been out to the graveyard to bury
Mrs. I'idgeon, anil we were riding home in the
carriage with the bereaved widower. While
he Hupped lii eyes with hit ham 1 kerchief he
told uh about her:
" In unc respect 1 never Haw her equal. She
was a manage'. I've knowed the woman

was as good U a gold mine. Why, she'd take
a worn-out sock and make a brand new over
cuat out of it, I believe. She had a turn fur
that kind of economy. There's one of my
shirts that I Ixuight in 1847 Htill going about
making itself useful as winder curtains and pan
talettes, and plenty of other things. Only lost
duly our gridiron gave out, ami she took it

LIFE IN A LIGHTH0U8R

Among the nuiulier is one at St-veu lout KnolL

and found themselves in the garden, which is

boxes, with several children playing in it In
side the che00eboj was found a large suite of
apartments, unhiding arlor with a piom,
a large sitting mom, sleeping nnuns, kitchen,
etc., quite as commodious as a French tlat in a
largo city. Mrs. I tolling, the keeperV wife,
said she and the children wen- never Pick. A
little girl, thrve yean old, who was horn m the

LADIES NECKTIES.
Economical and very pretty ties for the neck,
oays a writer to the Rural Xtw 'orier, may
be made of groo grain ribbon which has done
service as a belt or bonnet ribliou, even though
it is considerably worn ami faded, for after be
ing raveled and finished, only the bright new
side appears. The riblon should be cut ex
actly by a thread in strips from one-halt to
three-fourths of on inch wide. These strips
should 1 raveled out on each side, leaving
about four or five threads in the center; then
twist each strand with the riht hand, holding
it with the thumb and fore-tinger of the left,
pressing the center closely with the thumb
nail. This gives the appearance of chenille
cord. Sew together at the onds with silk
thread, of course some Ave or six of these
twisted strands uf a suitablu length, and fasten
a tassel, or two or three small ones, at each
end. The tassels are made of the raveled
thread whloh should be oarefully saved for thin
purpose, as they are pulled out.
One of our friends has four or live of these
ties, each of a different color. They are much
admired, and one who did not know all about
it, would not even suspect that they were
home-made. If a ball is prefered at the top of
the tassel, it may tie made by sewing the rav
eled silk many times over two circular pieces
of jiasteboard about three-four tits of an inch in
diameter smaller, if for small tassels and hav
ing a circular hole in the center, near one-fourth
inch in diameter; then with the scissors cut
the Silk between the boards on the outer edge,
and tie it firmly between them with a strung
silk thread. Pull oil' the boards, and if you
have tilled In enough silk, yuu have a pretty

proofs of such colored photographs by the Al

PBESERVING CITRON.
At the lost meeting of the New York Parm
er's club, Miss. Juliet Carson remarked that the
genuine citron is the rind of a kind of lemon
very thick-skinned and fragrant which grows in
Italy and the south of France. The recipe used
by European confectioners for preserving citron
is as follows: The citrons are cut, pared and
pricked with a large needle; put over the fire
with cold water and gradually heated and
boiled until tender enough to pierce easily.
They are then laid in cold water while the fol
lowing light syrup is being made; Use one
pound of while loaf sugar for every pound of
fruit. Put the sugar over the tire in a copper
sugar-lwiler, adding half a pint of water to
every pound of sugar, and beating the white of
an egg with every six pounds or less; bring to a
boil, and as soon as it begins to rise in the boiler
tbruw in a little cold water to reduce it; let it
rise in boiling three times, throwing in a little
cold water each time; the fourth time it rises
skim it thoroughly; then strain through a flan
nel bag and it is ready to one. Put the
syrup over the tire and loil it to what con
fectioners call a Small thread, i. e., until, when
tried between the thumb and forefinger (which
is done by dipping the fingers in cold water and
then (juickly into the syrup), the sugar breaks
as you part them, leaving some on the fingers.
When it has reached the "small thread" put the
citrons into the boiling syrup and let it boil
over them twice; then take off the boiler, skim
and turn both preserves and syrup into an
earthen vessel to stand until the next day;
drain the fruit, boil the syrup again (this time
until the Btigar does not break when the fingers
are parted!; then put in the fruit as before di
rected; the third day boil the syrup again, and
again on the fourth day; after this put the
preserves in stopped glass jars until wanted for
ue.
TO TANDY I'lTHON.
Prepare ami preserve as directed above, nnly,
after the fourth botiiugj take the fruit from the
syrup, wash it clean in lukewarm water and dry
it in a moderate oven while you loil the
yruptoa "blow," To ascertain this point,
dip a skimmer in the boiling ay nip, and after
shaking otl the syrup, blow into the holes; if
the syrup in them shows bubbles, it has reached
the right degree. Put the frnit into it and let
it reach thy "blow" again; then take the kettle
off the lire and let it stand ten minutes, after
which push the fmit outside and grain the
Biigar by rubbing the inside of the pan with the
skimmer: as soon as the sugar turns white take
each piece of fruit on a fork, stir it well in the
grained sugar and then lay it 00 a wire grating
to drain; as soon as dry, put it away from the
air until needed for use. A strong solution of
gum arabic added in "graining" the ay nip im
proves the luster of the fruit and helps to
keep it

In the Trtbmi report of the Nashville meet
ing the American Association of the Advance
ment of Science, it was mentioned that a series
of resolutions had been jiasscd with reference
to measures for the preservation of the natural
curiosities of Yellowstone park. The Secre
tary of the Interior is charged by law with the
maintenance of that reservation as a National
park, but no provision has Iwen made for car
rying out the intent of the law. The Ameri
can Association will etitiou Congress to take
active stejw to prevent further destruction of
the natural cunosities of the park, as their loss
would be irreparable, and they have a value to
science as a means of settling some open ques
tions. The committee having the subject in
charge consists of prof. Joseph Henry, 0. C.
Marsh and Theodore It. Conutock. Map J. W.
Powell and Lieut (ieorge M. Wheeler. The
first meeting of the committee will probably I
bebl within a short time, at Washington. It ii
U be boned that the measures for preserving
the leauties of the park from the ravages of
tourists, will lie taken before the devastation
is complete.
