THE MAGIC -HAIRPIN.
1 ITS MULTITUDINOUS USES.
What Can Be Accomplished With
a Hairpin in the Hands
of a Woman.
The iroof of a hoy's mechanical
skill is usually what he can do with a
jack-knife ; the proof of a woman's is
what she can do with a hairpin, says
Few women take naturally to ordi
nary tools. They use hammers in a
gingerly and ridiculous manner, or
they pound their fingers with them ;
they put blunt-pointed nails along
side instead of across the grain, and
then wonder why it splits ; they use
screw-drivers principally to pry open
boxes, and they think wire-pincers
were made to crack nuts with. But
they know how to manage a hairpin.
"A lady," said an observant gen
tleman, the other day, "always opens
a letter better than a man. A man
tears off a eorncr, and then pulls the
envelope more or less to pieces in
:t'tting at the contents; but a lady
Ir.wvs a hairpin, inserts one prong at
:i nuticr, and rips open the edge as
i: -a 'v, easily, and quickly as if tho
to n wore made for that purpose.
u'm the same tool she can, nnd
fri'f Mitly docs, button her glove,
and occasionally her boots. She cuts
tin magazine with it. bhe twists it
in! elasps for broken jewelry. She
uses it to suspend plaques. She em
ploys it to draw corks, and also to
snuff candles. Sho inserts it in win
dows to keep them from rattling, and
lo brace back shades that incline to
tumble down. She succeeds with its
help iu turning the hasps of windows
from the outside when obliged by ac
cidental lock-out to burglarize" her
own house. She arms herself with
it when traveling, to keep disagree
able neighbors at a respectful dis
tance. She tiles receipts upon it.
She pins up notices to the milkman
with it. She even bends it roughly
into the form of an initial, and hangs
it in the keyhole of her intimate
friend's lock, by way of a card, when
she has forgotten her card-case, and
the family are out.
The fan has long been regarded as
the object most suggestive of the
Spanish women. Ladies of other
countries are famed for their graceful
or,skiUful.use of -other, dainty, family
feminine articles. But if we were
asked to select the thing most truly
representative of the great American
girl, we would name without hesita
tion the neat, the ingenious, the in
exhaustible, the magic hairpin.
An important use of the hairpin has
been overlooked in the above, viz. :
loosening up the soil in the window
garden without injuring the delicate
roots of the plants. We know of no
instrument which makes so good a
"spade " for this purpose as the " in

According to the statistical fiend
Chicago eats 300,000 pies a day,
which, placed edge to edge, would
make forty miles of pie. Three men
and eicht girls can make o.OOO pies a
day. The ovens are kept running
day and night. There are nineteen
standard kinds of pie, but apple takes
the cake. It leads everything else in
winter, and in summer sells steadily,
though of course not so largely after
beriies come in. It is lucky for the
manufacturers that it is so, as their
profits are larger on applo pie than
on any other that they make. In
winter, mince stands next to apple.
Americans eat more pie than foreign
ers, but the men from New England
take the lead in eating pie. Pie and
milk is their favorite lunch. A ( hi
cagoan was heard to say the other
day: "Aw believe pie is" good brain
food. Mr. Emerson was quite fond
of it, you know." Pies can be made
for about soven cents apiece in quan
tities. Danlel'H livening at Home.

Thk Plants of the Gcttek. After
a study of eleven months, Dr. Hugo
AVinnacker, of Gottingen, has found
that the vegetation of the stones oi
street gutters consists of green algae
and fungoids. The algae are harm
less and even beneficial, for they
grow over the fungoids and at their
expense, and help to keep them
down. Most of the fungoids appear
to be harmless, but some of them
may be dangerous disease germs, to
be freely distributed by the wind
when dry; and, as it is difficult to
distinguish their qualities, the growth
of this class of plants should be pre
vented as far as possible. The char
acrer of the gutter vegetation mav be
different in different cities.

The best as well as the cheapest
way of using pennjToyal to get -rid of
fleas, in to use the herb itself; the
oil, of course, cannot be used where
the inconvenience attending it would
be greater than the evil to be over
come. According to the American Journal
of Pharmacy, Hagar recommends the
following in" case of painful dentition :
Chloroform, ten drops; tincture of
Spanish crocus, half a drachm; honey,
half an ounce ; glycerine, one ounce.

The process of curling feathers con

The increase in strength due to
seasoning of different woods is given
as follows : White pine, 9 per cent. ;
elm, 12.3 per cent.; oak, 26.6 per
cent.; ash, 44.7 per cent.; beech,
91.9 per cent.
Shoe-dressing: Gum-shellac, half
a pound ; alcohol, three quarts ; dis

half ounce ; lampblack, two ounces.
The foregoing will be found to give
an excellent glos3, ami is especially
adapted to any leather the surface of
which is roughened by wear.
In filling up cracks in walls paint
ers experience a great annovance
from the rapidity with which the or
dinary plaster of pans and water
"sets'" A remedy will be found in
using vinegar instead, of water. Mix
the same as if water was used, and
the result will be very much like
putty; the plaster will remain plastic
for about half an hour, finally becom
ing perfectly hard.
For the sharpening of tools, instead
of oil, which thickens and smears the
stone, a mixture of glycerine, and
spirit is recommended. The propor
tions of the compositions vary ac
cording to the class of tool to be
sharpened. One with a relatively
largo surface is best sharpened with
three parts of glycerine .mixed with
one part of spirit A graver haying
a small cutting surface requires only
a small pressure on the stone, and in

Dr. Jelliuek has found that a drop
