Every farmer should have an experi

The tendeucy of silver table ware has

and this has effo-ted the sine of smaller

there are manv odd and striking designs.
A new style of salt cellars is made in the
form of a diminutive stewpan. Others
imitate shells, leaves, fruits and flowers.
Salad Dressing : Peel and boil a large

of sugar, half a cipful of ice water and one
cupful of cream ; beat the whites of three
eggs and stir in. Warm a gill of milk,
in which mix two tablcspooufuls of corn
starch ; let thicken and stir in. Set on
it. Whip a quart of cream, flavor with
essence of almond and jour over.
Sweet Peas : The main point in the
culture of sweet peas is to cut the flowers
every day. If one bloom is permitted to
mature and form seed the vitality of the
plant is exhausted and the blooming is
at an end. This lieautiful variety has
been much improved of late, and a num-
I her of very beautiful kinds have leen
produced py crossing. The bint tffect m
gained by planting several varieties, a
few of each together in rinim, and train
ing them on strings fastened from pegs
in the ground to a central stake, or the
mixed soeds may be planted. The swds
should be planted at once, and by con
tinuous cutting the bloom will last all
through the season.
Salt for Cows : If cows were forced to
eat salt by it being put in their food it
might do them harm, but it is extremely
doubtful if cows will eat two much salt If
they are allowed free access to it and free
choice to take it or not. Salt, being an
apparent need for the svstem, will help to
keep the animal healthy. This will in
crease the flow of milk and improve the
quality. It is believed that salt will do
this directly, and that its use will ini-
iirove the churning quality of the milk.
Jut salt should be given regularly. If
not there will be suffering at one time
from lack of it, and at another time from
excess of it. Provide rock salt, and have
a place for it where the cows can always
go to it. Put a trough in the yard, or a
box in the side of a building (with a root
or a box under the cattle shed.
Eating Lemons : A great deal lias been
said through the papers about the health
fulness of lemons. The atcst advice is
how to use them so that they will do the
most good, as lollows : Most people know
the lenefit of lemonade before breakfast,
but few know that it is more than doubled
by taking another at night also. The
way to get the letter of the billious sys
tem, without blue pills or quinine, is to
take the juice of one, two or three lemons.
i as appetite craves, in as nnu h ice water
I as makes it pleasant to drink without
sugar before going to bed. In the morn
ing, on rising, at least half an hour he
fore breakfast, take the juice of one lemon
in a goblet of water. This will clear the
system of humor and bile with ctliciency
without any of the weakening effects of
calomel or congress water. Peoplo

should le. Eastern provisions are now
obtaining higher prices than our own

prove that another plentiful crop is being

She may acquire, hold, convey and

Both married and unmarried women
have acquired political rights. In cer
tain Territories a suffrage equal to
that enjoyed by men has been con
ferred on them. Ia some States they
may vote for certain officers and hold
certain offices. Everywhere there Is a
growing tendency to enlarge the polit

Still more striking has boen the
opening of a vast and varied sphere

countless thousands are employed
They are found in office and store, ia

of the sex have ceased to be depend'
