Pout. When you serve black raspberries or huckleberries, alter putting sugar over them, allow one tablespoonful of water to each saucer of fruit. Do this even if you serve milk and cream with them also. They are so much less juicy than most other small fruits that they need it. Boston Transcript. Judge Miller, of Missouri, says he has learned how a full week may be gained in getting sweet-corn for boiling. As soon as the ear is formed, break the top down or cut it off, but leave the stalk erect in order that the pillen of the tassel may be sure to dust the silk of the ears, as they may not be fully impregnated should the stalk be stopped. -Onion Pjckles: jTake the; smallest white'onions, skin them and throw into salted water, and let them boil slowly until transparent. Then skim them out, throw away the water, and put the onions into a jar, and make a pickle of strong vinegar, in which a bag of spices has been boiled for ten minutes. Pour it over the onions boiling hot, cover tightly from the air, and in a few weeks they will be very toothsome. The Household. A delicious pudding is made by taking eight orpine good-sized and tart apples; peel them and cut out the cores, leaving the apples whole. Fill the space thus made with sugar and a little grated nutmeg or cinnamon. Put them in an earthen baking dish, so large that the apples will cover the bottom only. Then make a rich custard, allowing four or five eggs to one quart of milk; sweeten to the taste. Pour this over the apples, and bake until they are tender; try them with a broom splint. Serve with cake 01 with sweet biscuit. N. Y. Post. 99 OIlLllk-N I i i .1 i A HIGH-CLASS WEEKLY TOR BOYS AID GIRLS.

It appears, also, that insanity is increasing more than three fold as fast as the population. The increase from 1870 to 1830 was 100 per cent, against 30 per cent increas of population. The asylums are costing a year, and yet more are cared for out of them than in them. The ratio of cures to the total of the afflicted is lower than it was ten years ago, and asylum statistics show that it is only by taking hold of the disease in its early stages that cure is at all possible. "Alcoholism" is presented as one of the chief causes of this increase of madness, and the marriage, of persons inheriting the disease another. Startling as the theory may seem at first though, it is probably susceptible of proof that the increase of insanity keeps about even pace with the advances of civilization. The States that are most enlightened are those which have the highest per cent of people in the asylums for the insane. Savages and barbarians hardly ever become crazed. An insane Indian is as rare as a dwarf Indian. The logic of it is that there must be radical defects in the thing we call civilization and these are probably as often traceable to the schools and colleges as to the family and heredity. Can it be that the children are prostrated in their brain force and nerve force by being over taxed at school Certain it is that the great majority of crazed people in the asylums are of the educated class. No doubt alcoholism is a prolific generator of insanity. The records of the California asylums explain that. The history of the growth of insanity in this State shows that it has been about in proportion with the excess of the growth of the cities and towns over the growth of the rural districts. It is in the town and city that alcoholism most prevails. Not only alcoholism, but other promoters of the disease, such as sudden revulsions of fortune and vices peculiar to ail cities. This assertion is fully sustained by a comparison of the statistics of insanity in the States containing the large cities with those almost exclusively rural. New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, California rank highest in the percentage of insanity; while Iowa, Kansas, Texas, Arkansas, which contain no cities over 30,000 or 40,000, rank lowest. All remedial measures for the prevention of the disease are but perfunctory; bnt temperance, moderation in study by the young and relaxations from the cares and vexations of business by those of maturer years are the best in results yet tried. Eras of high excitement and reckless speculation are promoters of insanity. The Coin-stock mines have added five hundred victims to the list in this State and Nevada. San Francisco Chronicle. A Sad Case. A Jackdaw one day made its appearance in a grove where a number of Birds had assembled to talk business, and as soon as he could secure the Floor he began: "My dear friends, I desire to call your Attention to one of the saddest cases it has been my Lot to know. Some of you will remember that Mr. Blue Bird was killed by a stone thrown by a Boy some six weeks "ago. His Widow was left without any means of Support, and in addition to her great grief she is now in need of the necessaries of Life." "Hear hear cried the Partridge and the Loon in chorus. "It has quite melted my heart," continued the Jackdaw, "and I have taken it upon myself to see if something can't be done. Let us be charitable. Let us open our purses. Let us go at it and at least soften the pangs of poverty, even if we cannot dry the tears of grief." "That's my style, and here's an 'X for the hat," said the Fish Hawk as he drew a roll of wealth from his hind pocket. The Turkey Buzzard followed suit, the Nightingale, Robin, Mocking Bird and others chipped in what they could spare, and when a good fat parse had been made up the Heron arose and inquired: "I I that is you know I'd like to ask how much Mr. Jackdaw chipped in?" "Just what I was going to ask," added the Owl." "Gentlemen I I didn't contribute anything," replied the Jackdaw "I am the one who draws up the Resolutions of Sympathy instead of chipping in Cash: MORAL: Resolutions of Sympathy should be baked for two hours before being eaten. Detroit Free Press. Catehin? a Pickerel by the Wrong End. On Friday Mr. Hawthorne, while fishing for bass with light gut, hook and leader, felt a heavy pull on his tackle. Mr. Hawthorne was feeling a littla drowsy and not paying any great attention to his fishing, but the pull woke him up sharply. The fish went off with the line like a horse, and nearly mcceeded in taking rod and Mr. Hawthorne put on all the strain he could and stopped it. Then for about thirty minutes it was pull fisherman pull fish. At' last, to the astonishment of Mr. Hawthorne and his oarsman, the tail came up first about the size of a lady's fan. The fish's weight was eleven pounds. It appears the pickerel made a dash for the minnow, and by some means got the line round its tail forming a half hitch. It was lively fun for the fisherman while it lasted. Alexandria Bay Cor. Rome Sentinel. In a hovel on the banks of the Delaware, at South Chester, live Frank Gerund, his two wives (sisters) and their eighteen children. According to the Philadelphia Times the current of harmony is rarely disturbed in the household, and when it is Frank restores quiet by threatening to get a wife who will care, for him. Each of the sister wives holds a marriage certificate, though Pennsylvania does not recognize plural marriages. Miss Richards, who has been traveling about in Wisconsin organizing woman's suffrage clubs, says that her greatest opposition comes from young unmarried women, who imagine that men will cot like them so well if they advocate the? woman's suffrage cause. Chicago Herald, Many words have "been spoken and written in behalf of agriculture. The State has smiled approval upon the nus-bandman's employment, and a department of the Government has been maintained for the welfare and encouragement of this craft. In politics the claim of the interest of husbandry have been fully recognized. In literature and art, the grace and dignity of country life and of the laborers of the field have received honor and most generous compliment. Painters have sketched rural scenes, and cattle pieces, showing bits of breezy hillside pastures, and the most home aspects of the homesteads by. the roadway have been familiar and favorite subjects in studios and galleries of art. Poets have sung the charms of our Arcadian life, and now fashion has sought its retreat for all the summer season of the year. The markets have sustained prices that were burdensome to the consumer, and wealth, that can do iust as it pleases, has shown its taste and its sense by entering the field and joining hands with the toil and theskill of honest farm labor. All this patronage has been well meant, and very much of it has been hopeful. It is, however, possible that fancy farming, carried on by wealthy amateurs of the craft, may work hardships to the very class it is designed to benefit. The advantage of having ample means at his disposal enables the capitalist who manages his farm with an eye by no means single to the profits of the business, but rather as whim or as fancy may lead him, to undertake many experiments upon which the prudent husbandmen would not venture, and to introduce improvements that bring a late return. Doubtless in a general way great benefits have resulted to the farmers of this country from the pains taken by individual wealth and enterprise to improve the breed of our domestic stock. Much pride is shown, and justly, too, in what has been effected. The products of the dairy in particular have gained as much in quality as they have increased in quantity during the last twenty-five years. The prices of, these products have advanced in nearly equal ratio, and a stability has been given to these values such as they have never heretofore maintained. This is almost wholly due to the efforts of amateur farmers. It would seem to be a gratuitous and unmixed good to the producer. No doubt it was so intended, but there is one way in which it operates to wrork a lanre class of producers and the general consumer a real and serious-hardship. It has so refined upon the quality of butter that what is rated as first-class now is really a fancy article, and and its price is no less a fancy one. There are many private tables and a few public ones in this city which are supplied with butter at prices ranging from one dollar and a quarter to one dollar and a half a pound. The producer asserts that such butter cannot be afforded at any lower rate, and he easily demonstrates the correctness of his statement. In the first place his cows arc costly. For not one of them did he pay less than seven hundred dollars; some of them cost as high as twelve hundred dollars each. The feed and the care of these animals will be expensive nearly in proportion to the price. The butter must be furnished to the table without having been salted, so that each person using it may season to his or her own taste. To secure this the butter must be delivered as soon as convenient alter it is taken from the churn. This requires that the cows be kept near the city, where the expenses incident to their keeping will be the heaviest. All the circumstances go to prove that butter cannot be afforded except at prices which place it beyond the reach of any but the rich. The' man wrho follows farming as his vocation and not from fancy, nor as a speculation, must locate farther from the city, where the value of land will be according to its capacity for production. At such a distance he cannot furnish butter quite fresh and unsalted. The money which would buy one fancy cow will stock his farm with ten or a dozen first-rate cows at from $G0 to $75 apiece, any one of which will make as much and as good butter as the imported animal. With careful feeding and skillful management of the dairy, he can produce butter which ought to be classed as of the first quality. In the market such butter as he makes will sell for little more than one-fourth what is paid for the fancy article. The difference between its price and that of the poorest quality will be but a trifle. Indeed, the manufactured oleomargarine holds a place quite respectable alongside the genuine article of good, yes, of excellent quality. Any of our city markets will show this demoralization of taste, if prices are the index of values and of estimation. The- result is that the honest farmer gets no credit for any pains he jnay take to supply a good market worthily; for the best he can do is to produce an article which, judged by its price, is of fourth or fifth rate quality. His neighbor, who is a notorious sloven, does only a little worse than that. Giving really good butter such bad repute by bringing it into competition with an article that can only be produced by capital and afforded by luxurious wealth, opens the market'to a spurious article, and tends to make both producer and dealer indifferent to the wants of customers, It is in ways like this that fancy farming shows at times effects such as those who engage in it little dream of produc ing, and which, if seen by them, would be sincerely deplored. Only careful noting of results will enable the amateur to benefit the craft with which he had allied himself. Boston Advertiser. Mrs. Johanna Holland did live in Bullion Ravine, Gold Hill, Nev.

HOT WORK, HAED FIGHTING WITH QUICK EESULTS Last fall a party left New York City In high spirits for a pleasure tour through some of the 'Western Statos. They had thrown aside the cares and responsibilities of business for a few wcefcs, and were determined to enjoy themselves and have a good time generally. Begone dull was their motto, and they intended to net up to It. Everything went as pleasant as could be wished for for a time, until one day, while campingout In Wisconsin, a spark from the camp fire set the tent In a blaze, and the conflagration was so sudden and unexpected, that the whole party came pretty near being cremated la mode, but after great exertion the flre was finally put out with the loss of a considerable portion of their property. After all was over, one of the party, who was perhaps the most active in his exertions, discovered that his hands and wrists were severely burned, which he had not before discovered in the excitement of the moment. The pain was Intense and he suffered severely. One of tho company had Wen troubled for some time with rheumatism, and by the recommendation of a friend had purchased a bottle before coming West, some of the contents of which were still left. It was speedily found and applied to the burned wrists and hands and the relief was instantaneous, for la a few minutes it soothed the pain effectually. That bottle contained Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil, and now it 1 their stand-by as a household remedy. It has no equal for alleviating pain. LYDIA E. PlNKHAr.TS VEGETABLE COMPOUND. la a Positive Cnro.
