HOW TO COOK CARROTS.
Humble Vogetabit) Can Ba Made Into
Tbo huiublo carrot has an especially
r?ond effect on tbo system at this time,
and desplto Its strong tasto it mny bo
made Into tbo most delicate dishes.
I Winter carrots aro slightly boiled In
three different waters to remove this
j rnnknoss, but tbo now spring sort Is
dainty enough to require one water
only. Spring carrots, which begin to
appear in March, nro delicious when
boiled plainly and served with maltro
d'hotel-clarllled butter sauco. A dust
of finely chopped fresh parsley on top
who tire of the carrot taste.
Carrots served with cream aro first
boiled In plain water and then drnlned
and warmed anew In the snuce that
has been prepnrlng. To mnko this
sauce dilute a little of the boll water
with two-thirds cream and thicken
slightly with cornstarch; season with
black pepper and salt' and add u table
spoonful of butter.
Carrot fritters aro made with tbo
cold boiled vegetable mashed up and
mixed with breadcrumbs and egg;
enough cream to make a thlcklsh bat

In oil. Oyster plant and parsnips are
also delicious when served In fritter
form, the various Ingredients used giv

How to Roll Umbrella.
A badly rolled up umbrella, besides
looking unsightly, does not wear half
as long as It ought to. The process of
rolling an umbrella up .neatly Is sim
ple. The majority of people hold It by
the handle aud keep twisting the stick
with one hand, while with the other
they twist and roll the silk. Instead of
this they should take hold of the um
brella Just above the ribs of the cover
Theso points naturally lie evenly
with the stick. They should be kept
hold of and pressed tightly against the
stick and then the cover should be
rolled up. Holding the ribs thus pre
vents them from getting twisted out
of place or bending out of shape, nnd
the silk Is bound to follow evenly nnd
roll smooth and tight. If an umbrella
Is rolled In this fashion until It Is old
enough to look rusty It will look as If

How to Launder Black Clothes.
First, black clothes must never be
wnshed In water that has been used
for either washing or rinsing white
things, as there Is always line lint In
this water which sticks to the black,
and no amount of after rinsing will
get It off. Wnsh in hot, clean soapsuds
and rinse In the ordinary way. To
starch, take a cupful of white corn
meal, place In n frying pan nnd set
next the lire In the range. Burn this
until It Is n black, sticky mass, stir
ring It steadily. When all Is black,
pour In boiling wnter, stirring all the
while. Then strnln nnd you have a
splendid starch. Iron on the wrong
side, and your shirt waists will be beau
tlfully fresh and sweet.
How to Make Cleaning Compound.
Mix one ounce of borax and one
ounce gum camphor with one quart
boiling water. When cool add one
pin of alcohol. Bottle and cork tightly.
When wnnted for use shake well and
sponge the garments to be cleaned.
This Is an excellent mixture for clean
ing soiled blnck cashmere and woolen
dresses, coat collars and black felt
How to Amuse the Baby.
Put the youngster on a thick nig or
blanket on the Moor, dip his wee fin-'
Kers In molasses and give' him n
feather taken from a pillow. He will
sit contented and satisfied for bourn
trying to get the feather off his fingers.
When one feather gets too sticky, sub
stitute a fresh one and be rewarded by
a smile of approval from his lordship.
How to Protect Kitchen Floor.
When frying or sautelug try Invert
ing a colander over the Iron spider.
The small holes In the colander allow
the steam to escape and still prevent
the grease from escaping.

Agnes Winston was a very gentle
person with no natural aptitude
for leadership In those political move
ments which concern the woman of tbo
present da v. Hut she fell under the In
tluence of Mrs. Montgomery Stone,
who was greatly Interested In the mat
ter of obtaining votes for women, and
that lady mado a vigorous effort to In
fuse some of her own enthusiasm on
the subject into Miss Winston. Tbo
process was like molding n stntuo of
n soft material which would not hard
en. To describe Miss Winston In worn
an's parlance as a votes for woman
advocate, she wouldn't "Jell."
However, nfter her first Interview
with the stronger woman she consid
ered herself converted to the causo
and. being engaged to be married, be
lieved It fitting that she should an
nounce her conversion to her lover.
She sent for him and said:
"Harry. 1 deem It proper to announce
to you that I am taking great Interest
In a matter of which I don't know that
you approve. Since 1 expect to as
Biinie a position In the working out or
a new Idea"
"Why. It's one of those ideas that
don't belong to any particular person;
It's for everybody 1 mean for every
"Where did you get U?"
"1 don't see that (hat has anything
to do with the matter. It Is RiUllclent
for mo to tell you that I have Joined
the votes for women movement."
"Oh, that's all right. I'm In favor
of that loo. I'll give you my vote right
away. There are so many puzzling
questions In our country's political
status that my brain Is In n whirl nil
the time trying to find out which way
to ote upon them. I'd like mighty
well to turn my duties as a citizen
over to you."
"Why, It's all very simple. Isn't It?"
"Simple! Not to me. There's the
tariff, and the trusts, and the referen
dum, and the recall, and u lot of other
things. It takes all my time to keep
up even with what they mean."
Agnes, who had henrd Mrs. Stono
rattle over these things as a cat would
run over piano keys, snld confidently:
"Oh, I know what all these things
"What's the referendum?"
"Why, when the governor of n state,
for Instance, doesn't exactly know whnt
to do In a certain case he refers the
matter to the people. He submits It nt
"What's the recall?"
"Why, when a Judge doesn't decldn n
question right they take away IiIh
"Splendid! I see I hat you have eas
ily discovered the purport of these two
novelties, over which I have been puz
zling my poor brain ever since they
were born. I can't make out whether
a trust Is nn economic development or
an assumption of monopolists treading
on the people's rights. I have no Idea
whether we have too ninny voters al
ready or too few. There are so ninny
candidates for me to Investigate before
our election that 1 haven't the time for
the work. I shall have to do our pro
viding when married, and I think It
will be better to turn my political du
ties over to you."
"You couldn't, stupid. It'H against
the law for women to go to the polls
"But you can tell me how to vote,
nnd I'll go to the polls and vote as you
say. Wouldn't that be the same
"I suppose so In our case, but every
woman couldn't do that with her fiance
or her husband."
"She might with her fiance."
"That's It. When she's married her
husband will wish to vote as he likes."
"Well, suppone that he wishes to
vote one way and the wife the other.
In that ense what's the use of either
of them voting? The one, la u stand
off against the other."
"1 never thought of that."
"In other words, they 'pair' as they
do In legislative bodies when two
members on opposite sides wish to be
absent at the coming up of an Impor
"J think we'll pair," she Bald softly,
feeling for her lover's hand.
"And If a case of referendum comes
up In our family I'll refer It to you."
That will bo very nice."
"As to the rocull- But there's no
recall In marriage, Is there?"
"Only divorce, and that's awful."
The dialogue wan Interrupted at this
point by kisses and was never renew
ed till after their marriage. Then ono
day when the couple differed on some
domestic subject the wife said:
"What did you say, dearie, when wo
were engaged, about matters of this
kind occurring between us?"
"I don't remember."
"I do. Von said, 'If a eaao of refer
endum comes up between uh I'll refer
It lo you.' "
"Did I say that?"
"Yes; you did."
"What did I sny about the recall?" 1
Tho recall? I don't nxneflv nmr.m.
ber that. Wasn't It something about
a Judge not deciding right nnd being
initen orr the bench?"
"Yes. When wo wero omrairpd I told
you that I would abide In all things by
your decision, nut now that wo aro
married I find that you do not In all
cases decldo right. In this Instance
you nro all wrong, and I fool it uecea
iary to ezm&Wi prerogative, of re.'
