“The one or two literary friends I had ad­
vised me to write a novel, and give up all
other duties to do it. I had not sufficient
faith in myself for that, but wus persuaded
by an experienced friend to write a serial
story of a melodramatic character, merely as
a pot boiler, for to make money bad become
a stern necessity. As the story had to l>e full
of moral purpose, and would do good rather
than harm, I swallowed my instincts and be­
gan it without the smallest belief in my own
powers for writing sensational work. Never­
theless, I was determined to finish it; if not
good of its kind, at least 1 had not neglected
to make the effort.
“Just as it was finished there was a great
stagnation in the periodical trade, and I re­
ceived the manuscript back, saying that it
bad not been read because, in consequence of
‘.he dull times, no manuscripts were being
purchased. I then gave up the idea of sensa­
tional literature and returned to Plainfield,
N. J., where I had formerly resided. The
friend w’ith whom I stayed, like myself, was
short of ready money. In considering the
means of making it, she suggested if I could
make certain articles she bad eaten at my
bouse during tho days I was studying Gouffe,
¿he could find a ready sale among her friends,
□f whom she had a very large circle.
“We devoted $1 worth of material to the
experiment.. Our though s turned only to
candy and candied fruits. Gouffe gave one
form of candy, which I bad tried in former
days, because I could not realize that sugar
and water, boiled, could ever be rolled out
like dough. I satisfied myself that it was so
and went no further into the matter and
thought no more of it until reminded of it by
my friend. I experimented and succeeded in
making little squares, or tablets of cream
candy, which seemed quite wonderful nt the
limo. After many experiments and failures
I succeeded in candying some fruit.
“These were sent out as samples by my
friend, and during the interval I went on ex­
perimenting and succeeded in making candies
that made me ashamed of the sample. It was
luggested, also, that English plum puddings,
for tho making of which I had some reputa-
non, on account of their keeping qualities,
would lie very likely to sell. My hostess at­
tended to the sale, took the improved samples
jf candies to New York, and found her friends
ielighted with them. The Woman’s ex­
change also took them. She returned homo
with ordere for Thanksgiving, to be all filled
within a week, which, considering that I was
>nly in tho experimental stage, that we had
not a convenience and were on the top of a
hill three miles from town, knew nothing of
waxed paper or almond paste, or anything of
the kind, was simply appalling, for the orders
were for many pounns of candies and many
)thers for Christmas puddings and cakes.
Wo knew not one must lie refused. We had
io servant and could get none, but did got a
woman at odd times during the week to wash
up. Myself and friend worked far into the
(light from very early morning. For hours I
itood boiling sugar, pot after pot, while as it
cooled sho worked it, then during any interval
we washed currants, stoned a few raisins or
Blanched almonds, in short, working inces­
santly, not stopping even for meals.
“Every order was filled, and before we had
time to look around, orders began coming in
again, and then they came not only for arti­
cles we professed to make, but for many
Bthers. One lady wanted macaroons, if she
could have them. I had made macaroons
years before, and as it becamo our business
to refuse no order whatever, the macaroons
were experimented with, until such as would
compare with the liest wore produced. Many
of these were sold at the Woman’s exchange,
is was our candy also. But before Christ­
mas, private orders camo so thick that noth­
ing could be sent to the exchange. For
Christmas and New Years, over sixty pounds
of French candy, one hundred and odd plum
puddings, besides sponge cake, macaroons,
pound cake and jumbles, were ordered, and
ivery order filled; we worked for weeks, be­
fore and after Christmas, eighteen hours a
lay, for the demand continued all through
the holiday season. And we candied our own
orange and lemon ¡»eel, and had none of the
lids to labor we might have procured had we
Anticipated such success.
“During Lent, when there was a lull, I went
!or a few weeks to New York, and rend and
<nade notes on everything I could find on
confectionery in the Astor library. There
were few modern books of much service, and
ibón, for the first time, I found my acquire­
ment of Italian and French stand me in good
itead, for I was able to glean some valuable
Ideas from old Italian and French confection­
ers. During this interval I was asked, by
the owner of one of Sardou’s plays, to trans­
late it tor her, as she wax not satisfied with
;he translation she had. I agreed to do it in
the summer, and went back to my friend to
experiment on the contents of my note book.
“A few weeks later I took a cottage much
aearer the depot, with the intention of carry­
ing on the business of making plum pudding,
cakes, etc., the next winter. But, mean­
while, I translated the play and turned some
lotes that I had ready for a lecture, which I
íound I Ivtfl not the courage to deliver, into
•ome articles, afterward printed in Scribner’s
Monthly. I then wrote ‘Cultpre and Cook­
ing,’ and sent my sensational story again on
its travels, as times had become more pros­
perous. This time it did not come l>ack, but
with the acceptance and a liberal check came
in offer of steady work on a weekly journal,
provided I agreed to write only for that one
periodical. This agreement was made, with
rhe privilege of writing for Cassell’s Maga­
zine, in London, to which I had been some
time a contributor, and the engagement jus­
tified me in giving up for the time being the
business of candy and pudding making en­
tirely to my former hostess and friend, who,
by her energy and business ability, had helped
io largely to make it a success."—Catherine
Owen in Good Housekeeping.
An Undesirable Habit.
A habit very common with a nu ml »er of our
thoughtless young ladi* s, who do a great
many things quietly whP h they would not
like to have known of at home—a habit de­
serving of the strongest condemnation—is
that of promiscuous correspondence with gen­
tlemen, whether the gentlemen be married or
single. The young todies who find pleasure
in this habit use their pens on any pretext
that turns up, and sometimes on no pretext
at all. We are not really «ure that this <!<*•
not come less under the bead of an undesira­
ble habit than a sin, for there is an Indelicacy
about it quite amounting to immodesty, of
which no girl who respects herself or who de­
tires the re«|*ct of other« will t«e guilty.
Three young letter writers, however, gen­
erally g*t a fit reward for their thoughtless­
ness or their culpability in the end. For if

habits, their letters are>

systematic nifm, then those letters are at the
mercy of any and every one who chooses to
waste time in reading them. And if their
corresi»oudeiit is a married man, then his
possession of their letters, even of the most
trivia) kind, places the writers at a disad­
vantage. Sooner or later, too, in that case,
tho letters fall into the bands of his wifo; his
wife, who, long after the briof correspond­
ence has been done with, usually remains
mistress of the situation, reads the folly or
the wickedness with clear eyes, and holds the
writer not only in contempt, but in her
power. No young girl cun be sure that her
correspondent is not merely amusing himself
with her; and it is often the case that her let­
ters are unwelcome and a nuisance, and he
does not check them and does reply to them,
not from interest in her, but mere manly
And when the writer lias recovered from
her folly, or forgotten about her idleness,
there is the letter, in all probability still ex­
tant, in the possession of somebody, she knows
not whom, ready to rise like an awful l»e-
traying ghost after she herself has possibly
undergone a change that will make her face
burn, branded with shame, should the letter
ever chance to confront her, or perhaps even
the memory of it Her motive may hav<
been all innocence at the time, but it is left
forever under doubt; and, in fact, exdept in
the baldest business affair, there can be no
excuse, and therefore no innocence, in the
matter of a young girl’s writing letters to any
man not her personal relative or guardian,
for about most of these letters there is an un-
maidenliness almost amounting to indecency,
and in the end her correspondent himsen
never thinks other than lightly of her on ao
count of them.—Harper’s Bazar.

Fry some apples occasionally. Fried upples
will remove the edge from many a bard meal.
New tins should be set over the fire with
boiling water in them for several hours be­

It must be very acid as well as sweet.
Spots may be taken from gilding by im­
mersing the article in a solution of alum in
pure soft water. Dry with sawdust.
A little borax added to the water in which
scarlet napkins and red bordered towels are
washed will prevent them from fading.
Plaster busts may be cleaned by dipping
them into thick liquid cold starch—clear
starch mixed with cold water—and brushing
them when dry.
The latest wrinkle for luncheons in New
York is to serve the soup in cups instead of
plates, and the china stores are selling two
handled cuj>s for the purpose.
Piaster of paris mixed with water about

When the nose threatens to bleed exce sive-
ly, it can sometimes be arrested by putting
the feet into hot water, or by applying a
mustard plaster between the shoulders.
For making hair oil that is not injurious to
the hair: Castor oil, X pint; 95 per cent, al­
cohol, % pint; tincture cantharides, ¿¿ounce;
oil of bergamot, 2 drachms. Color the mix­
ture a pale pink with alkanet root.
The bottom of an old keg or butter firkin
makes a good mat to set your kettle on. Have
one or two hanging near the dish table.
Make a hole and put a siring through to hang
It by.
Finger marks may be removed from var­
nished furniture by the use of a little sweet
oil u|x)ii a soft rag. Patient rubbing with
chloroform will remove paint from black silk
or any other material.
Steel knives which are not in general use
may be kept from rusting if they are dip{>ed
in a strong solution of soda, one part water to
four of soda; then wipe dry, roll in fViuuel
and keep in a dry place.
Tea stains are very difficult to get out if
neglected. They should be soaked in either
milk or warm water as soon os oossible, an*
then soaped and rubbed out. The next wash
ing will efface them wholly.

This ease never occurs. Muse«lino specialties
are numerous. Their specialties are not one,
but many. Now, if it happens that one of
those ancestors had a specialty particularly
adapted to transmission, which had become a
part of his nature before his children were
born, bis posterity may have inherited his
special aptitude regardless of the occupations
of their immediate male parents. But, of
course, it would all the time be diluted by its
mixture with aptitudes inherited through
other strains.
In the case of woman, every circumstance
conspires to make the special aptitude in­
tensely hereditary. It is acquired before the
birth of children, hence it is always trans­
mitted. It has been transmitted, undiluted,
from the female side through countless gen­
erations. In a certain sense woman inherits
masculine aptitudes from her male ancestors,
but ulmost her only use of them is to trans­
mit them to her sons.—Henry J. Philpott in

Essence of Good Breeding.
W hen you enter a room and are presented
to the hostess, her reception of you proves
k>r good breeding or her bad. Tho way in
ehich her children meet you—the way in
which at any age beyond the merest baby­
hood they speak and hold themselves—is as
eloquent of their gentle training or ungentle
as is a correct accent or a provincial. No
idiosyncrasy mars tho real essence of good
breeding, and all excuses made for lapses and
lesions are futile. A well bred person may
be as shy as a hawk, and her limbs may be
as awkwardly bung together as so many
crooked sticks badly pinned. All the name
her good breeding will be evident, and nei­
ther her shyness nor her awkwardness will
tell against it Though it costs her the well
known agonies to sustain a connected conver­
sation, and though by the very fact of her
shyness her brain will run dry, she will sus­
tain it with the most consummate politeness
if not always with the most flawless fluency.
She will put a restraint on herself and talk
her l>est, bad as that best may be, because
she is versed in the art and mystery of good
breeding and thinks of othere rather than
herself. <
But an ill bred person, if shy, is simply
boorish, and takes no trouble to conquer the
dumb demon within him. but gives way to
it and lota it conquer him at pleasure. You
feel that the excuse made for him or her by
those who want to smooth over asperities
with varnish—that excuse of being so “dread­
fully shy” is no excuse at all. For you know
by experience how sweet and anxious to be
supple and at ease—for all the |>ain it costs
her—can be that well bred bundle of nerves
and fears, who is as timid as a hare and as
sensitive as a mimosa, but also who Is
thoughtful for others as the boor is disre­
garding.—Home Journal.
Favorite Bostonian Desserts.
The Bostonians are fond of odd novelties of
the table. A favorite dessert of theirs is to
hollow out a block of ice and place within
cubes of muskmelon. It is cut up in the
morning, placed in the ice, covered with a
block of ice and served at 6 o’clock dinner.
Over this frozen melon is sprinkled sherry
and powdered sugar. Brown bread ice cream
Is a favorite Boston dish. The brown bread
is permitted to become stale; it is then grated
into the usual ingredients for ice cream and
is delicious. Huckleberry ice cream is also
appetizing and looks pretty. It makes an
ice cream almost as black, and is a novelty.

The effigy of Quoen Victoria found
on all the coins struck during her
Majesty’s reign represents her as she
appeared when fifty years younger
than at present Advantage has been
taken of the present jubilee year to is­
sue an entirely new coinage, with an
effigy of the Queen as the people uow
know her. The Queen appears wear­
ing the star and riband of tho orders
of the Garter and the Victoria and Al­
bert. The words “ Victoria Dei Gra­
tia Britanniaruni Regina, Fidoi Defen­
sor,” appear on all the new coins, ar­
ranged so as to suit the size aad re­
quirements of each ono. In the now
effigy her Majesty appears crowned,
with a vail depending from the back
of the head.
The new figure is a
life-like portait, and the whole coin­
age must be regarded as very satisfac­
tory from a numismatic standpoint.
Tho reverses of tho new coins vary
greatly. Some, as the sovereign and
crown pieoe, continue to bear the very
noblo figure of St. George and the
Dragon, as originally designed by Pis-
truccL This design it is interesting
to trace from the date of Henry VIII.,
when it appeared in a very Gothio
form, to its present classic rendering,
due to Pistrucci. The reverso of th«
modern English shillings and smaller
coins usually bears words or figures
lignifying the value of the coin.
These arc surrounded by a wreath
and surmounted by a crown. In the
new coinago this design is replaced
by the royal arms.
The new
half-crown bears the original reverse,
which has been retained as being one
of considerable merit. It consists of
the royal arms, with the elegant
arched crown surrounded by the gar­
ter, which is again inclosed in the deli­
cate network of the collar of the or­
der. Tho florin and the double florin,
new coins, bear on the reverse an ex­
ceedingly effective design, composed
of four crowned shields bearing the
arms of the United Kingdom arranged
in a manner somewhat similar to
those on tho present florin. The
shields are separated from each other
by four scepters radiating from ths
■tar of tho Order of the Garter, which
occupies the center of the coins. Th«
device has been traced back to th«
time of the Saxon Kings, and its
beauty attracted the notice of Thomas
Simon, who modified it for the coin-
age of Charles 11.
The issue of an entirely new gold
and silver coinage by a monarch after
a reign of fifty years is believed to be
unexampled. Medals have been struck
under similar conditions, but new
coinage has not been issued
more permanent record of
Majesty’s jubilee than this now coin­
age can be conceived. As we hav«
vivid representations of Alexander the
Great and of the long line of the
Roman Emperors on their coins, which
are common at tho present time, long
after the majority of their edifices and
other works have passed away, so
future generations may trace the prog­
ress of the reign of Queen Victoria in
the two distinct issues of the imperial
coinage. — Chieago Tribun»..
