Miss Lilian Bell, the Chicago authoress who is making her first visit to En- rope, has evidently encountered homesickness, and in The Ladies' Home Journal uniquely and vividly describes that hitherto uupictured malady: "If I have discovered nothing else in the brief time since I left my native land, it is •worth while to realize the truth of all the poetry and song written on foreign shores about home^ To one accustomed to travel only in America and to feel at home with all the different varieties of one's countrymen such sentiments are no more than vers de societe. But now I know what heiiuweh is—the Swiss word for home pain. I can understand that the S\viss really die of it sometimes. The home pain! Neuralgia, you kno\Y, and most other acute pains, only attack one sot of nerves. But heimweh hurts all over. There is not a muscle of the body nor the most remote fiber ol the brain nor a tissue of the heart that does not ache with it. Ton can't eat. Ton can't sleep. You can't read or write or talk. It begins -with the protoplasm of your soul and reaches forward to the end of time and aches every step of the way along. You want to hide your faoe in a pillow away weep, but'even mat does nor cure, li, seems to be too private to help materially. The only thing I can recommend is tears, unrestrained weeping." plentv of money, for the amoufic of nis offering on his birthday 25 years hence trill be something over $16,000,000. The Late Judte >"el«on. Speaking of the la to Judge Nelson of Worcester, Mass., Senator Hoar said the . other day; "He never let go a client's | case in which he believed, and no one was wise who went to sleep thinking Judge Xelsou was through with a case just because the preliminary points were lost to him. He was a man of absolute integrity, agreeable, fond of friendship and of his friends, and with a vast knowledge of literature, science and history. He had in his memory the best poecry in the language and knew the stars so that he could on a moonlight night point ont and name the constellations in the skies. He had a rare knowledge of the names and habits of birds and plants," A Rash Promise. An enthusiastic church member of Philadelphia has just contributed $1 to the church on its birthday, pledging himself to double the amount on each anniversary of his birth for the rest of his life. If he keeps his pledge and lives loo?, enough, the church will have, Corncob Pipes and Teetee Stems. The manufacture of corncob pipes • has become a considerable industry at I Beaufort, :5. C. Special machinery has I been made for the purpose, and an expert turner is employed to carve out the bowls, which are of many designs. The cobs are of a particular corn grown in j the Missouri valley and are transporter • to South Carolina by the carload. The cobs have to be seasoned for two or i three years before they are used. The supply of cane stems, which is obtained from the canebrakes along the Port Koyal railroad in lots of 60,000 stems, capable of being cut into three lengths, also employs much labor in the country to select and gather them. A new and attractive feature of some of these pipes is the teetee stem. The teetea is a shrub, the botanical name of which is Cliftonia ligustrina. j It grows up in a long, straight, point- j less stem, with a soft center pith and of various circumferences, from the size of an ordinary pipestem to that of the little finger. It has enjoyed the reputa-1 tion, from tho aborigines and among, southern jplanters and others, who h^ve J ever used it iii preference to any other, not excepting the cherry or fig stem, of best absorbing the nicotine and affording a grateful and fragrant taste.—Savannah News. Bow to Care For tfie Baby. A verv great drawback in babies' outdoor garments is that they usually have capes that are cut so as to fasten round the neck and leave most, of the weight dragging behind. A coat shaped pelisse in which the weight is partly borne by the shoulders is far better. Earache is usually the result of cold, raking children out in a high wind or letting them sit or stand in a keen draft. If the presence of earache is suspected, just a drop of sweet oil dropped in on either side will frequently give relief, because it softens the wax that sometimes accumulates in the ear. Nature does not often provide too much, but now and then an extra quantity is secreted. 2fo one must ever be permitted to poke anything, not even the corner of a handkerchief, into an infant's ear. Syringing very gisitly -with warm •water and dabbing dry -with a soft handkerchief :aiay be resorted to it tbtt* if ao doctor within reach.
