cannot fail to be of 'interest. You
will require ten bojei of various
one washtub and boaTd, one broom,
twqnty feet of annea!jl wire, two
dozen curtain-rings, twelve large
lamps or twenty candles, orajjas-rod
twelve feet long, with fifteenuye-foot
burners upon it, sIk yards black tar
latonmu3jin,costJDgabput25centsper yard, and five cotton sheet3. If the
room has no folding-doors, you must
have a thick curtain or be'dquiit con
trived to draw on a wire across the
room, leaving a space about fifteen
fet deep for the stage. This space
must be draped with shawls or cur
tains, by Btretching wire across tho
cides and back of the stage, near the
cealing, and hanging them by means
of rings sewed upon the cloth. Then
procure four upright pieces of nar
row board, just the height of the
room for posts, screw them upon tho
back sides of the frames near the
edge, so that when you raise them
up the frames will stand upright 4
feet ( inches from the floor. Cover
all the space above and below the
frames with cloth of the same color
as the back wall, so that they will
appear to the audience as if hanging
upon the wall. Put up these frames
four feet apart, and nail four strips
of board five inches wide, in the
shape of a large frame, between them
having the top and bottom strips,
which form the frame, six and one
half feet apart. This will give you
a large frame between the two small
er ones. The large frame will be
four feet wide and sis and one-half
feet high outside. The curtain must
be arranged to run in front of the
frames to cover them when not in
use. These three frames stand at
the back of the stage the support
ing posts nailed to the floor two and
one-half feet from the wall, so as to
give room for the performers or
pictures" behind them. If gas is
available, fasten a rod, with burn
ers upon it. over the top of the cur
tain or folding doors. It is well to
make a shelf for it, supported on two
posts, about eight fejgt high. Over
the burners, and behind them, tack
sheets of common tin, bent so as to
throw the light down. If jbu cannot
obtain the tin conveniently, a white
answer the purpose. If the curtain
dqs not reach the cealine, you must
put a shawl or thick cloth above it,
so that too much light will not enter
the darkened auditorium. If gas
cannot be had, fasten candles or
lamps, very securely, upon the shelf.
In a very elaborate "performance the
stage should be raised to a level with
the eyes of the spectators, but very
fine performances are sometimes
given on a few hours' notice. Next
make a vale of black tarlatan muslin-large
enough to cover the space
before the posts which support the
A few suggestions requiring only
such costumes and appointments as
can be obtained in almost any house
may not be out of place. A very
simple one is: "Justice, Mercy and
peace." Justice stands on a high
pedestal, made of two boot-boxes
covered with a shjeet; Peace on one
box, andMercy kneeling on two boxes
placed end to end, making a long
gedestal. They are draped m sheets,
eace can be taken by a child dress
ed in a short frock of white cotton,
belted around the waist. Justice
must be a larger lady than Mercy.
Mercy kneels in an attttude of prayer,
with clasped hands ; Justice, blind
folded, stands erect, holdings sword
and scales covered with white cloth,
and Peace stands on the right of Jus
tice, holding a stalk of paper lilies
in her right hand. The faces of the
trio must be whitened. In all
"statues" the hands should be
covered with white cotton gloves,
the arms with stocking-legs sewed
to tne gloves, ana tne heads with wigs

And then " The Roman Girls at

saint, in white, stands in the largo

covered with a sheet) on which
stands an unpainted wooden cross,
two and one-half feet high. A dark
Roman girl holds a wreath of flowers
over one arm of the cross; another,
kneeling on the other side, is passing
to her a basket of flowers; a third

again and show more pictures, which
the assistant has had time enough
to prepare. In the center frame
stands a " gleaner." In one small
frame, a child with a red cape over
her head and a little basket in hei

and in another is "A Marchioness."
Late one 'afternoon an old gentle
man wandered into the office of a
StaleStreet insurance company, Bos
ton, and looked curiously around,
evidently in search of information.
An active young man who wa3 just
closing the safe, stepped forward
and asked if he could be of service.
"Well," said the stranger, "I
wanted to get some insurance on the
bark J?orer, hut your people don't
seem to be around."
The active gentleman informed
the old party that he could be ac
commodated, and after some doubt
and hesitation on the part of the in
surance seeker, hewas fitted out
v ith the necessary document. The
next morning he madt his appear
auce again and singling out a venera
ble gray-haired clerk he said :
"I came in here yesterday after
noon for some insurance and one of
your boys said he could fix me, but
I thought perhaps he might not
know how to do the thing just right,
so I thought I'd drop in this morn
ing." The .old clerk smiled and asked,
" Which of the boys was it? "
The cautious customer looked
around the room and then said :
"It was that smart-looking little
black-haired fellow over there."
The clerk's eyes twinkled, and he
said: "Let me introduce j'ou to
him." And leSding the applicant
up, he said: "Mr. Blank, let me
present you to Mr. , president of
the Insurance Company."
The astonished customer stared
at the energetic and smiling young
president for a moment, and then
ejaculating " Gosh! " left the office
without another word. The presi
dent does not close the safe now as
often as he did", but his early and
late attention to business bears evi
dence in the splendid condition of
his compans. Boston Bulletin.

1. Keeping her accounts in prefer

2. Generously praising the attrac

always cuts her out.
3. Not ridiculing the man she se

she seriously admires.
4. Not changing her "dear, dear
friend" quarterly or her dress three
times a day.
5. Reading a novel without look
ing at the third volume first; or
writing a letter without a postscript ;
or taking wine at dinner without
saying "the smallest drop in the
world;" or singing without "a bad
cold ;' or wearing shoes that were not
"a mile too big for her."
6. Seeing.a baby without immedi

evening party, and omitting to ask
