We cannot trace here the IncldenU of

and her own, the years of wandering
and exile, the second period of brief and
illusive prosperity, aud theswift reverses

unbroken, bending to the passing storms

Keep your mouth closed when eating.
Never play with food, nor mince your
bread, nor bandit) your knife and fork or

vertently get into the mouth, the lips
must be covered with the napkin while

the table. Do not put large piece of
food in your mouth; if you are addressed
when your mouth is so filled, you are
obliged to pause before answering until
the vast mouthful is masticated, or run
the risk of choking by swallowing it too
hastily. To eat very fast is a mark of
greediness, aud should be avoided.
Never soak up gravy with bread or
crape your plate. Never, if possible,
cough or sueese at the table. Do not

exceedingly important feature is its
lightness, a property which favors its
employment for many special purposes.

The essential conditions for budding
are a free flow of the sap in the stock
ami a corresponding one in the tree from
which the buds are taken, uniy wnen
the liark on the stock can lie easily sep
arated from the wood can the operation
be successfully performed. Jsuddiiig is
to be preferred to grafting for all the
stone fruits, and in case of failure can
be repeated on the same stock. It is
best performed on young stocks of one
or two years' growth. The buds are
taken from scions of the present season's
growth, which should be cut from thrifty
young trees. In budding select a smooth
place on the stem of the stock to be
budded within three or four inches ol
the ground. Make an upright cut just
through the bark about an inch and a
half long, with a cross cut at its top, and
within the slit thus made insert the bud
by taising the bark sufficiently with the
knife. The buds lor the purpose are re
moved from the stick of scions as they
are wanted by a smooth cut with a sharp
knife, usually taking with the bud avery
thin shaving' of the wood. The bud is
then inserted in the slit under the bark,
and the stock is bandaged over the
wound with some kind of coarse twine,
leaving the bud itself uncovered by the
tie. If the union of the bud to the stock
takes, it will be manifest in a couple of
weeks, when the wrapping can De re
moved. In the spring the stock should
be cut off a little above the growing bud.
How to Manage Candled Comb Honey.
Comb honev that has become old and
candied so that it cannot be removed by
the honey extractor may be managed by
Mrs. L. Harrison's method. This ac
cording to the lady's story is as follows:
The honey was mashed up in a pan and
set over a kettle of boiling water and
stirred fr quently. Before the honey
was very hot the wax had risen to the
surface, and being set out in the cold,
quickly congealed, so thai the warm
honey could lie poured from under it
through a cotl'ee strainer into another
vessel, leaving the wax in the pan.
After the honey was melted, the wax wss
all melted up together, and considerable
honev of interior quality waa under it,
which can be kept separate and used for
cooking, making ginger bread, etc. The
rinsings of vessels used in manipulating
the honey will make excellent vinegar.
The wax can be melted in a pan over
boiling water, and should be poured.

The process of rendering wax, as com
monly prnetieed, is not only troublesome,
but wasteful. Inasmuch, therefore, a?
the supply of wax is scarcely equal to
the demand, it behooves beekeepers to
practice more economical methods. The
most approved plan of rendering wax is
by the use of a wax extractor, of which
there are several in the market. Where
one has no extractor the wax may be
put into a strong, rather coarse bag,
which is placed, in water and boiled.
The bag must be placed on a plate or
other object to prevent its touching the
bottom ot the vessel and so Decoming

of the water. Where it ia desired to
mold the wax into cakes use' a deep
basin, and when cool, if any impurities
are found on tho bottom, shave tliem oil"
and molt this portion again.
Vncnltl (atari Land.
Uncultivated land is not wholly un
productive. In some place people make
more ready nionev in an easier way by
harvesting and selling wild berries than
they can by the poor farming methods
they give to their partly exhaiited cul

are profitably grown, cultivated berries
of the same varieties will lie still more
productive and pay even better it prop

ashamed to let nature unassisted meth

It is inevitable that any grower of poul

he can profitably winter. Unless he ha

Who Haunts TouT
-Now think a minute. Is there not
some unknown person whom you are al
ways meeting iu this great city without
any reason for it? 1 have asked a great
many people, aud find hiat nearly every
body is haunted by some stranger. Jast
at present I am haunted by a red headed
girl, who has freckles and a turn up
nose and wears a light gray dress. She
turns np at all sort of unexpected places.
No matter where I go to lunch that red
headed girl is sure to pass me on the
way. Every day or two I meet her in
the "L car. I clnn: tho line, but sure
as fate there she is. If 1 go out between
the acta at the theater that red headed
girl walks by. And so it goes, until
ow 1 hare got to absolutely dread her.
The wont of it is that she I a nice
looking girl aud never seems to see me.

A CaiiM of Depreulon,
There is another and equally important
cause of mental depression and physical
disorganization as is that of overeating,
and hick of sufficient exercise. This is
the constant application to occupation
which is in vogue iu this country. Men
and women alike, since women are for
midable competitors of men in profes
sional pni-suits. have a practice of going
on in the same treadmill manner, year
after year, without any lapse for rest.
We live in this country at too high a
pressure, in a business sense. Men en
gage of course in business, more actively
and in greater numbers than women, yet
being brought into so close contact with
the former, women naturally absorb
not only personal interest, but are often
plunged into its vortex, und become as
bound np by its demands as the men
It is not unusual, in fact, for women
to assume and carry out the management
of the counting room, office and Btore as
well aa the household. The strain of
these demands upon the system ia nat
urally very great nnder the most favor
able conditions, when the body is nur
tured and rested in a reasonable manner.
Men WI10 Eat Pie.
A truly charming gentlemnn is Mr.
Edmund Russell, apostle and expounder
of the Delsartean faith. We take back
all the uncivil and cruel things we have
uttered against old Delsarte and his
creed, for we have seen Mr. Russell eat
pumpkin pie at Rector restaurant late
of nights.. In the whole wide range of
philosophy there is none other that ap
peals more directly or more potently to
our sympathies than does that philos
ophy which justifies by practice the eat
ing of pumpkin pie.
Mr. Whittier, the Amesbury poet. Is
aa fumoves pumsber of pie aa Ralph
Waldo Emerson was, and that is saying
much, for Emerson was mighty in the
pursuit, comprehension, mastication,
digestion and assimilation of that cheer
ing viand. Apple pie, however, and not
pumpkin, was Emerson's favorite diet,
and is Whittier'. Engen Field in
Blood Oranre Cannot Be Stained.
"Blood oranges" have been investigat

and as tue supply or "blood oranges" in
the Washington market seemed to be
abundant, he directed an inquiry with a
view or condemning the fruit if it had
been tampered with. The chemist to
whom the matter was referred says in
