WASHING BLANKETS. SYLVAN PLEASURES. irit Lunu o oukkhh. -ww.. " . '
fom Remark! on This Important and Vex
atlou Dumtlo Prolilnm.
I do not cliiim to know every thing
about washing blankets, or perhaps tlio
best method of doing it, but I have had
bit of experience) in Unit lino and
would be glad to impart it to any who
would liko to know it. In the last
twenty-live or inoro years I havj had
four and Homo of the time live beds in
daily use. For these the only covering
is blankets, winter and summer, with
the exception of the white bedspread. 1
do not own a comfortable (no comfort
in them that I can see) and but two
patch-work quilts, so I make up in
blankets. Using ho many I have some
to wash every spring and fall. In order
to wah blankets successfully, four
things are ' necessary. A good day,
plenty of soft water, dissolved soap ad
libitum, and twg pairs of stout hands.
1. A good day pleasant; of course.
The sooner a blanket is dry after being
wet, the better it looks ami the less it
shrinks. If the son does not shine the
hottest, provided the wind blows it is
just as well for they are apt to smell
oily it tlio sun is too not.
2. Plenty of soft water. If soft wa-
tar is not to be had a large spoonful of
borax dissolved In hot vat( r and added
to each pail will help wonderfully.
3. Plenty of dissolved soap. Never
use soap that has rosin in it as it hard
ens the texture and causes an unpleas
ant smell. I would not use it for any
washing as it turns white clothes yel
low when they are laid aside,
4. Two pah of hands aro needed,
because the blankets should not be
rubbed on tlio hoard, and two can
handle them niiich easier than one.
Liot us not attempt to wash any more
than wo can do well. Here is a
blanket that has been on a sick bed
and thero are some spots of oil on it.
Take some cold water and soap and
wsh out the spots before putting into
the hot suds. Iilankcts when bought
are bound on tho edges with ribbon of
diftoroiit colors. If washed with this
oa they will bo blanki of many colors
when done. I rip oil' tho rihbon and
button hole the edges with white
zephyr worsted. Iilankcts aro bought
in pairs, but it is not necessary to keep
them so. They are much easier
handled and are not always needed on
the bed together, so I have found it
wise to cut them apart,
' Now wo nro road? for tho washing.
I mako a strong suds of tho dissolved
soap and hot water, having it hot
enough to be oomfortahle to my hands
and put in a couple of blankets to Hoak
a few minutes while lilting the boiler
again. Squeeze tlio blankets in tho
.band pressing them up and down in
the tub, then transfer them to a second
tub, proparod in a liko manner with
not quite as much soap'. Tut soino
more blankets to soak l'i the lir.st tub.
If the first ones look clean when out of
the second suds they csn bo put next
into a clean water fo" rinsing. Tho
first rinse will probably bo quite soapy,
use the second and if necessary tho
third rinse. He sure n soap is left In
the blankets as it will leave them hard.
Hare all the water as near of one tem
perature as you can; you can judge by
the fueling to your hands, homo
use a little bluing in tho last water,
I prefer tho clean whito look
to the possible streaks of blue, llavo
the wringer loose so as not to press
down the pile too hard. When out of
doors one pair of hands should tako
bold of one end and one pair of tlio
other and shake and pull in shape.
Hang evenly on the Ire. As they be
gin to dry pull In shape repealing at
intervals until dry. i-old when dry,
pulling in shape, pile together and
place a weight on them, if to be put
away for the summer, sow each one in
cloth (old sheets come hi huffily) and
you may bid doliancn the moth who
In ever on tlio alert seeking what it
if you wish to wash blankets for tho
first time they will need a little dill'er
ent treatment. Never mix them with
thoso that have been washed before.
Tho water must be just warm, plenty
of soap, and the borax In two or three
waters. Tlio blankets are full of grease,
as you will see when Uey get into tho
water, and it must be got out now or
never. When they have been washed
so they do not look streaked, it will do
' to put" them into a ln.tor suds for tho
final one, then rinse as above stated
until they are clear white.
If blankets are not used constantly,
they need not be washed every season.
It su lllees to hang them on tho lino
when the wind blows and the sun is
not too hot. And linally get all the
blankets you can. Use them in pref
erence to any other bed clothing,, es
pecially for the children. Perhaps the
crossness, tint "1 don't want any break
fast" disposition may be in a measure
owing to the heavy quilt or comforta
ble on the child's bed. Don't blame
tho child-look after tho bed clothing
instead. Mrs. M. J. I'lumstead, in

"S. Q. G.," McGree's Prairie, Iowa,
asks: "Do you know any place where
a young man can get a good living?"
That depends on what you call a

poor people use, come up and stop at

Wales conies when he gets weary of
being heir apparently to the throne.
Here is where llert comes when he has
stood a long time, first on one leg and
then on tho otiicr, waiting for his
mother to ovacnate said throne. He
bids dull care begone, and clothing
himself in some of my own gaudy
finery he threads a small Limerick
hoof through the vitals of a long
waisted worm as we hie ns to the bosky
dell where the plash of the pleasant
voiced brook replies to the turtle
dove's moan. There, where the pale
green plush of tho moss on the big flat
rocks deadens the loot-tall ol Wales
and me, where the tip of tho long wil
low bough monkeys with the giddy
stream forever, where neither powers
nor principalities, nor things present
or things to come, can embitter us, we
sit there, young Regina and mo, and

original is now almost obliterated, but ! X0'IC
copies o it in all styles of engraving
are numerous. In it Jesus is repre
sented as seated at the middle of a long
table, with his disciples on either hand.
The moment chosen by the artist is at
the pomt where Jesus ha jatt an
nounced that one from among the
twelve will betray him. "Then the Bi
ciples looked one on another." The
three disciples mentioned particularly
in the context are at his right. John
is nearest to him and leaning towards
Peter, who stretches behind Judas to
speak to the diHciplo whom Jesus loved.
Judas is clutching the money bag and
upsetting the salt, has every feature
expressive of the alarmed villain. He
is between John and Peter.
Dr. Vail's idea of the scene Is totally
different. In the first place he would
have the table done away with and the
participants in the feast ar
ranged on couches placed in
the shape of the letter U. Tho

The lirst step is to have a large
bouse, the second to be ready to spond
lavishly in it, the third to find some ono
to bid society ncoplo to the feasts. ' So
that the first two conditions are ful
' tiled, and that tho "some one" be well
! teleeted, the aspiring snob soon blooms
into a socioty personage, and his or her
house becomes a recognized rendezvous
of fashion. Our aristooracy is not
difficult in these matters. They want
to be fed, and to bo given balls and
parties, and whether the entertainer be
an ex-convict or an ex-cook matters
I very little to them, provided that the
! best of every thing do provided. At
the first party of the social wpirant,
tho "some one in society" must pro
vide half-a-dozen grandes (lames and
half-a-dozen society beauties as decoys.
At the second party, the "Prince"
must by hook or by crook bo in
duced to come, and. if possi
ble, tho "Princess;" and this is
easily done by getting hold of somo
lady of his set. Afterward thero is no
trouble, the house becomes a recog
nized caravansery for society. If thero
be any difficulty in getting the decoy
ducks, presents judiciously given, aro
useful; whilst the "somo one in soci
ety" who is to secure them may always
be obtained by paying the price of the
article. If there are any hitches, a
house at Ascot, or near Goodwood, or
atCowcs, with a beauty or two to stay
during the week, is a very catching
bait. If at Cowes, it would be well
to hire also a yacht.

then, for a feast, if tho couches were to
bo tilled, was nine three to each
couch. But thero were thirteen in the
company of Jesus, and two couches,
therefore, must havo been crowded.
Thus far all historians agree.
According to Dr. Vail Jesus sat at
the point number 2, John nt 1 and
Peter at 13, while Judas was at 3.
"We havo no clue," ho says, "to the
places of tho rest." In endeavoring to
understand how Dr. Vail deduced this
arrangement it must bo remembered
that tlio conversation of Jesus and
John concerning tho identity of the
trator was conlidential. A careful
reading of tho toxt will show that this
must have been tho case, for not even
Judas himself understood the signifi
cance of tho passing of the sop to him.
It was a mark of especial favor among
tlio Jews, a polite act, to dip a sop and
pass it, or a choice morsel, to a friend
at the feast. In the consternation that
ensued after Jesus' declaration that
one of his chosen twelve was to betray
him, he could oasily say to John in an
undertono that he would indicate the
traitor in tho way described. Further
more the gospels agree that John was
reclining next to the Saviour, "leaning
on his bosom," and even Da Vinci has
followed this clue in his picture. Dr.
ail, continuing his analysis of the
"Tho places given to the four ex
plain how John sat nt Jesus right and
leaned upon his bosom; how in the
contention Judas got Jhe place of hon
or next to Jesus; how that Jesus could
tell John who the traitor was and no
one else hear it; how Peter could mo
tion across tho table for John to ask
who it was; how Jesus could give
Judas the sop as a sign, without excit
ing the suspicions of the others, and
how Judas could quietly ask, 'Lord, is
it 1?' and then go out without causing
any special remark." A'. Y. Cor.

nine years, by the name of Josef Hof
man, is exciting the attention of mu

artist, who is a native of Warsaw, is

as a pianist and a composer. He

and boa-sts already of a repertory in

Weber. Chopin, Liszt, Rubinstein, etc.
In Carlsbad he played Beethoven's

A singular phenomenon is said to
exist in Wilmot'S quarry on tho Basket
creek, and one that bafllcs all attempt
at explanation. Mr. Wilmot himself

our office with him Mr. Hinoraan, own
er of the land on which the quarry is
located, to substantiate his words.
Both tho gentlemen affirm that after
taking tho top off a ledge of rock ex
tending back about eleven feet they
began raising tho lifts of flagstone.
The ledge is only some seven or eight
feet high and over forty long. After a
few t.)p layers of stone had been taken
off it was noticed that the lifts under
them began to raise in spots, and in a
short time would raise up clear across
the ledge, much in the same manner as
flooring will occasionally beeoino so
swollen as to bulge up at some point in
the shapo of the roof of a house.
This was at first ascribed to the heat,
as it was in tho afternoon, and the sun
shone in very hot upon the ledge, but
as fast as one' lift was taken off the one
below would begin to rise in the middle
as though, being wedged or sprung in
at (lib ends, they raised in the middle
as soon as the weight was off. Tlio low

er seemed to bo the impelling force;
and not Ion" ago tho men found, on
going to work in the morning, while it
was cool, that during the night an im
mense course of stone had risen in the
center of the ledge, extending across
the eleven feet to a height of seven
inches, and sloping like the roof of a
a house, each way, to the ends of tho
ledge, The workmen were instructed
not to disturb the rock, and Mr. Wil

An Incident From Which Every Unielflah
Mother Can Draw m Leon.
Who is to bo blamed when boys turn
ont badly, thofathers, the mothers, tho
boys themselves or their portions of
original sinP That is a question mon
and philosophers have long labored to
answer. A famous old physician used
to say: "There's no use talking, a
mother has a hard time of it! If she
devotes twenty years to her boys and
they turn out badly she was too strict.
If she tries to bring out manliness in
them by gentlo words und ways and
they turn out badly no wonder!
She hadn't tho slightest control of
them. If they turn out well, as a re
sult of hor judicious training, all she
gets is the gratification of hearing them
spoken of as 'fine, manly fellows! Just
like their father for all the world!' "
Tho old man, who was a strong
champion of womanhood and woman's
nature, did not so swecpingly exagger
ate as ono might think. It is very truo
that to tho woman belongs tho child.
Sho is held responsible for its naughti
ness. The good that sho does is un
noted, and with her woman's nature
she is satisfied that it should be so.
Mothers are proverbially unselfish.
Unselfishness is a lovely characteristic,
to possess, but there is little doubt thai
it is demoralizing to those for whom it
is exercised. Mothers should bo wiser
as far as the comfort of their old ago is
concerned, if they were indeed if not
in truth more selfish. A boy or girl,
for that matter, who grows up pos
sessed of tlio idea that any thing is
good enough for mother, that the big
gest share of the best of every thing is
his by right, is having the noblest vir
tue of his nature, his innate manhood,
warped and destroyed day by day. Ho
grows to bo ashamed of her bent figure
and old-fashioned ways. His wealth,
if he gain it, is little disturbed by at
tentions to her comforts and pleasures.
If taken into his house and given a
home she is imposed upon by his chil
dren and disregarded by his wife, as
he has imposed upon and disregarded
her for years.
It is cruel. It is wicked. It is un
natural, but unfortunately ei.0 is just
the one who taught him. An example
of cowardly boys was seen on a New
York horse car. A motherly looking
neatly dressed woman entered tho car
with much difficulty. She had appar
ently been traveling from the country
and was overcome by tho intense heat.
Two boys, ono about sixteen, one
twenty, entered at tho same tiino. She
sank upon tlio seat besido the younger
boy. The other walked to the frout
door and stood quietly looking out.
A few moments later the mother
turned very whito about tho mouth,
and her lips became blue. She
dropped the fan ho had been trying to
use, and her he.vl sank upon tho boy's
shoulder. The little brute hunched it
up. "I can't help it," she said. "I'm
A lady in the car sprang forward and
began to fan her and so continued to
do for a mile or more. The boy never
looked at her nor offered to do a thing
for her comfort. No one in the car
tbrought of tho other boy as belonging
to her at all until she opened her heavy
eyes, spoke his name and pointed to a
vacant scat. "Sit down, dear." He
actually looked mad at her for the sug
gestion and went out on the front
platform out of sight. When sho got
out both boys started by themselves,
one by the rear platform, one by tho
frit, and the conductor helped out
the trembling, fainting, unselfish
mother. N. 1. Gravhic.

thick-skinned eyelids that cover half

they are found in conjunction with a
brow which is full over tho eyebrows,
and which has one deep perpendicular
line between tho eyebrows. I havo

the faces of distinguished literary men
and artists. The almond-shaped eye,
however, even without this peculiar
form of forehead, alwavs means a sus

almost perpendicular forehead, are in
dicative of selfish and cold hearted
natures. Eyes which show not only tho
whole of the iris but also some of the
whito both above and below it, denote
a restless, uncertain nature, inoapable
of repose or of concentrated thought on
any subject. Round shaped eyes are
never seen in the face of a highly in
tellectual person, but they denote a
kindly, truthful and innocent nature.
Eyes which (when seen in profile) are

weak organization of body and mind.

Eyes rather far apart are indicative of
frankness and simplicity of purpose
an nonesi ana guileless nature. When,
however, the eyes are very far apart
they denote stupidity. Eves with
sharply defined angles, sinking at the
corners, snow subtlety oi mind: the
sharper the angles and the more it
sinks the greater the delicacy of ner-
ception it denotes; but when very much
developed it shows also craftiness
amounting to deceit Well-ooened
eyes, with smooth eyelids and a steady
