THE FIRST PIE PLATE5.
Thr Were Made fcr be Oeraa
Fotlera of Phllaaelpkla.
The flrat l platea were mad early
In the eighteen tli century by the Ger
man pottere who settled In I'blladel
pbln. After the clay wai prepared It wai
cut Into utall pieces by meana of
braaa wire and taken to the work
bench to bo made Into platea.
Tbe clay waa roughly beaten Into a
flattened form looking like a coloaaal
buckwheat cake. Thla waa rolled out
Into thin ahert with roller much
Ilka t rolling pin, and then t dlak
cutter waa uaed to cut It Into circu
lar plccee of the required diameter.
TLla bat, aa It wna called, waa then
laid on a board until partly dry and
waa then decorated.
The allp decoration waa applied by
meana of a allp cup, an earthen veeeel
with gooae qullla Ineerted into tbe
oiieuliiga, throutih wblcb tbe liquid
allp waa made to trickle over the war
lu a vurlcty of patterns, Just aa Icing
la applied to cake at the present time.
Tbe allp mixture waa of a creamy col
or made of white clay and water.
Favorite motives for decorations
were flowers, fruits and scenes, tulip

A Lutheran minister asked bl potter
to dine with blm to discuss designs for
a set of plates be wished to order.
As the potter was accustomed to dine
at 12, be was almost famished when
the clergyman's i o'clock dinner waa
served. When the act of plates came
home, each with a pious sentiment In
terwoven among the marginal decora
tloiiH, the minister laughed to find an
extra plate, bearing this Inscription: "I
have never been at a place where
they tllno so late." Ho much for Penu-sylvantu-Gerinuu
A Rekellloas Actor.
Frederick Iuiaitre, the French ac
tor, waa ploying Robert Mucoire in a
town of France where two aoldlera of
the giirrlaon represented the policemen
who had to arrest blm. In the spirit
of Ills part bo gave one of them a vig
orous kick. "Ha, we must see to tbls!"
cried tbe Infuriated soldier and prompt
ly knocked Lemallre Into tbe orchestra.
At this there was a terrific din, and
the soldier began to see that the Yin
dicstlon of bis uniform was not popu
lar. But Lemaltre, when be regained
the stage, took the gendarme by tbe
band and said: "Excellently well done,
my friend. Tbe uniform roust be re
spected even In the theater. Come to
lunch wltb me tomorrow and bring
Bill, Boata mu Hearts.
Mrs. Nolau bad made some disparag
ing remarks about tbe costume of ber
husband's boaom frleud, Mr. Herllby.
and they were promptly resented.
" 'Ills hat Is turning green wld age,'

and 'bis boots la rustr and cracked
