CARE OF FLATIRONS.
aw to KecpT' om In food Conditio
and Aiwa Heady for I .e.
It Is so easy to keep tho flatirons lh
good condition that there is little ex
cuso for any housewife neglecting
them, no matter how busy she may be.
Any woman can ca-sily tell at a glance
when those articles are well kept.
Some housewives will have In their
posse-scion irons that have been their
mother's before them, and though
they have been in constant use for
years, are still as firm and smooth as
any one could wish. Other women,
with the same kind of irons, would,
by neglect and carelessness, in a year
or two render them unfit to use.
Where there are many starched
clothes to be done up weekly, it is a
good plan to wash the irons once a
week, but where plain clothes and
only a few starched are to be done,
once a month is enough to wash the
irons. Take some clean ammonia
soap suds, and with a cloth wash the
irons well, afterward wiping w ith a
dry cloth, then put on the back of the
stove in a clean place to dry thorough
ly. To clean the irons always have a
piece of coarse sand-paper, or a hand
ful of coarse table-salt on a piece of
wrapping-paper, in which, to rub
Always have the top of the range
nerfectlv clean ere puttinff on the
irons, and never, if it can be avoided,
allow them to get too hot If such a
thing doe occur, cool them by setting
up on end on the hearth. Some
women, when in a hurry, cool irons by
plunging them into cold water, which
is a very poor plan, and those treated
in this way will soon be ruined.
Never do this or allow it to be done
with your irons, unless you are pre
pared to purchase a new set. There
is also the dang-er of scalding from the
steam that suddenly arises when the
iron is first placed in the water. Some
housewives black and polish the
handles and tops of their irons the
same as the stove, but it is scarcely to
be commended, as there is always a
danger of smearing the clothes.
Don't keep the irons on the stova
when not in use. for it is sure to harm
the temper of the iron, and don't, if it
can be avoided, have irons on the
stove when cooking, more particular
ly when the article cooking is one
that is apt to flow or boil over, or
while frying. After taking an iron
trora the stove, when wanted for use,
first rub it over a piece of heavy
wrapping-paper kept for that purpose,
then rub the smooth part with a cloth
in which is encased a bit of wax.
Rub tho iron well over a clean cloth
and then it is ready for the clothes,
In ironlrtg starched clothes, if any ol
the starch sticks to the iron always
scrape it off with a knife ere putting
again to heat on tho stove.
It is not always the best plan to
keep the irons on a mantel or open
shelf, although it is the usual way, tot
they are sure to be dusty when wanted.
It is much bettor to keep them in a
ury, eiosoa pmce, so tney may always
be ready for use. An old lady of our
acquaintance always used the lower
oven of the rane, whick is called the
Rot closet, but in her range, at least,
was misnamed, as it was a very cool
place, and was just tho kind of re
ceptacle for any thing that was to be
tent dry, such as irons. Boston

SUBSTITUTE FOR GLASS.
Tha Numerous AdranUge. of the Bo-CalWa
Th Introduction of a material com
bining all the advantages of glass with
none of the corresponding disadvant
ages arising from its brittleness will be
bailed with interest by every class of
the public, who suffer daily in one
form or another from the fragile na
ture of the article it is now sought to
supersede. The transparent wire-wove

as leather, and unbreakable, has for
its hnsis a web of fine iron wire, witn
warp and weft threads about one-
twelfth of an inch apart 1 his netting

translucent varnish, containing a large
percentage of linseed oil. The process
of manufacture is conducted by dipping
the sheets into deep tanks containing
the composition until the required
thickness is obtained; the sneeis are
then dried in a heated chamber, and
after being stored for some time till
thnrniifrhlv sfit. are ready for use. The

TnrnW now to the question of cost.
Wire-wove roofing is more expensive
in first cost than ordinary glass; but
tho nmnv advantages, both in erection
and maintenance, already set forth
will, in the opinion of those interested
in the question, more man counter
the primary additional outlay.
A material that requires no glazing,
can bo cut with scissors and fixed with
zinc nails, is an economical one to erect.
For churches, passages, staircases,
special colored varieties to simulate
glass similarly prepared aro manufac
tured. Both the Admiralty and War
Office have availed themselves of the
nd vantages to be derived from the em
ployment of the new roofing material;
whilst it mav bo added that the Koyai
Aquarium at Westminster Is entirely
covered with it.

to which the wire-wove roofing may bo
applied would be a long one; amongst
others, may bo mentioned: Itoofs of

At a recent meeting of farmers in
Iowa, Mr. C. P. Gillette, speaking of
entomology for the horticulturist, said:
"It is utterly impossible to definitely
draw the line and buy lust how much
entomology the horticulturist or farmer
should know. There is no limit to the
Information that one might gain in the
study of insects that would bo a benefit
to him in devising methods of preven
tion and remedy. I shall not go out
side of what may bo called tho essen
tial knowledge to successful warfare
against our insect foes.
"The horticulturist should be able to
distinguish, Injurious from beneficial
species, xne majority ol insects are
vegetable feeders, but there are a great
manv that feed upon or within the
bodies of other insects, causing them to
die. These latter are called predace
ons or parasitic, and in the main are
beneficial, as they destroy many injur
ious forms. When the lice have been
mostly eaten from a plant by the lady
beetles, the orcnardist, nnamg many or
the latter and few of the former, nat
urally attributes the damage to the
beetles, and proceeds to destroy all thai

again and the injury goes on perhaps
worse than before. It is not at all un

as doing much damage to soma tree or

but where there Is nope of a reprieve the
delay of the announcement that the man

not legally incurred, but it limits the
time of his real preparation to the one
last agitating day when his friends come
to take a final leave of him. The matter
is not one of minor importance, as was

bis execution is to take place Antil the
fatal hour actually arrives told very
heavily against that good priest's efforts
to bring such criminals as Tropman,
Avignoin and Billoir to a fit Btate of
preparation for their entrance on the
dread eternity. The strange laxity of
French prison discipline allowed some
of these men to be engaged In playing
cards with their jailers till within a few
hours of their death, but it may be
doubted whether the more decent pro
visions of our English custom, which
dedicates a condemned man's last day to
farewell interviews with his friends, can
avail to render that brief space of time
sufficient for the heavy responsibilities '
with which it is weighted.
