Tho singular thing about it i* that Warllmi-g was about one hundred miles from tho nearest railroad :in<l in the heart of the Cumberland mountains. Tin; <vood of •which tho instruments were made had to be brought from New Yorix ami then hauled WO miles over the wonntains to Wartburfv. which was a German cnl- ony. The pianos were made by a pi-io- tical musician, and when an instrument was ordered he would finish up the different parts at Wartbnrg and then haul them to the homo of his customer, generally many miles away, and put up thu piano there. One of them in now at Wurtburg, and thu building- where they wcrn made still stands, although no longer used as a piano manufactory. The town, which consists of about two hundred people, is away from the railroad and has not grown since the war. The home-made instrument, of over thirty years ay... is still in good order and in constant use. —St. Louis (3lobe-Democrat. squire li is tue -nrst citizen- ot tlte New England town in which he lives, and is respected by all classes for his sterling qualities and abstemious hubils, He has much of tin- courtliness of the old school, coupled with great persona! dignity, yet tempered with so keen a se.nso of humor that lie can appreciate a joke, even though it bt> lit his own expense.

H,, lately told a worktngman that free coal wonld be a great benefit to him. Tho discussion which followed was In the main as follows: Laborer—You have admitted that the present depression Is largely due to the uncertainty and delay In tariff legislation. Editor—Certainly. Every one ad' mils that. " Laborer—How much do you think I would be benefited by free coalP Editor—Coal from the British provinces can .be delivered hero at a good profit at $4 per ton, and you now pay 16.50 per ton, and you con d save $2.50 per ton with coal on the free list. Laborer—I understood you that the tariff raised the price of an article just the amount of tho duty. How, then, will the repeal of a 75 contduty on a ton of coal reduce the price $2.50 per ton? Editor—Oh. that will bo the result of competition, and the Pennsylvania miners oannot compete with the miners of Nova Scotia Laborer—What will become of tha Pennsylvania miners? Editor—Of course the minds will be closed until the miners will work cheap enough so that they ian also sell coal at $4 a ton. Laborer—Then the new'tariff is Intended to reduce wages? Editor—Oh, no Indeed, that is not the object, though no doubt the wages will be incidentally reduced at first in many directions. Laborer—I use half a ton of coal a month, and you say that with free coal I'could a&ve $2.50 on atonor $1.25 per month on my coal bill. Now, my wages have been reduced 28,per cent, and you have admitted that the agii tatlon of the tariff question caused the depression which reduced them. You have also admitted that incidentally the proposed tariff itsolf would reduce wages. Before reduction my wages amounted to $8 per day. Now please explain how I am benofitted by saving $1.25 a month on my coal bill while I lose $21.84 a month on my wages. I can hardly see where tho saving coraos in. Edilor—It is evident that you and I do nol think alike on the tariff question. Good night, sir. This conversation took place In the presence of savoral witnesses and Illustrates fairly well tho effects of tho proposed Wilson tariff on labor. Tho Tr«nd of Ftt»lilon. It is a singular thing to observe how the general trend of fashion, even in its e'xtrcmest whim, is similar in its styles for men and for women. When the latter wear "pull backs," or "bell skirts," it will be noticed that tho former usually don the long closely- fitting coat and narrow trousers. When wide sleeves and full skirts come in for feminine attire, with them arc, Tor masculinity, overcoats with cupcs .,.ud wide flapping trousers. So, now UK it is customary for women to comb tho front hair down in a thick and wavy mass over the ears, it follows that men should not delay to cover up their cam, likewise, by letting their hair grow long and heavy and parting it in tha same bushy lovelocks. It Is a period whun most of the heads one sees look us if they belonged to a Circassian crirl, a I'ardorewski, or a football player.— Philadelphia Press. ImproTcmeut ou the Form. A poor farm need not necessarily remain so. A good farmer will make his farm a savings bank. It may require several years to bring it to a. high do- -ree of fertility, and the farmer may be compelled to live in a frugal manner, but in a few years the farm will be more valuable and the farmer wealthy.

A Opod Family Variety—KMT to Make »nd •"'• ' Keep Well- To produce good cake, uniformly up to the standard, the housewife must have a supply ot first-class flour, kept dry; likewise of powdered sn£«r or the finest granulated, also kept dry. No granulated sugar can be incorporated with butter so readily or perfectly a* sugar powdered. Store both in wooden buckets and keep in a cool, dry place. Heat and moisture affect flour and sugar to a degree unsuspected by cooks who complain of "bad luck" with their bread and cakes. Sift flour before using, and measure after sifting. Mix all butters in earthenware bowls. Using pood flour, sugar, butter and eggs, three kinds of especially dainty cakes can bo made by means of tho directions given hero. These arc tho standard recipes for the everyday family table cako in several households where uniformly excellent cookery is insisted upon. ' * SAND CAKE,—Beat half* pound of sweet butter to a cream; add the yolks of five cuffs and half a. pound of sugar; for this cake granulated sugar is always to bo used. Stir this mixture half an hour, then add gradually hiilf a pound of eornslarch: grate in tho thin yellow rind of half a lemon, add a little of the juice, and, last of all. stir in lightly the stifllv-benten whites of three epgs. The right tin to bake this in is u hifrH one with a tube in the center, and tho pan should be thoroughly greased with lardbe'ore putting in the cake; the cake may stick if butter is used. Huke from half to thrcc-quartersof an hour. Ico the top, if desired. Always make sand cake a couple of davu before cutting it LIOIIT LAY KB CAKK.— Heat a pound o.f butter to a cream and add one at a time, the yolks of seven eggs: as you drop in a yolk, break in i>lso a whole eq-g making seven eggs in addition to the seven yolks. Mix thoroughly, and add gradually one pound of sugar. Stir fifteen minutes before putting in a pound of sifted Hour and the juice and grated rind of a lemon.

Sift over the 'flattened dough some powdered sugar and ground cinnamon. Hake in a moderate oven until the edges arc brown and the rest a pale yellow. Take the pan from the oven and cut quickly from end to end and then cross in stripes; use a sharp knife and lift the cakes very carefully, as they will harden as they cool. These little cakes are delicious with tea or coffee and should be served on cut paper in a light, careless pile.—Detroit Free Press VALUE OF ATHLETICS. The Qnsnl.lon of Fhyilrnl Exercl»e for Young MOD. Mayor Bancroft, of Cambridge, well known as a former captain of winning Harvard crews, has been quoted as opposed to all intercollegiate athletic contest, but, judging from a "smoke talk" on college athletics which he gave the oilier night at the University club in Boston, his opposition is so qualified fis to be easily mistaken for support, lie believes very emphatically in college athletics ;is a means of physical training to collegians, lie Is indifferent to t)u.'ni apparently as a incunsof amusing spectators, llo believes thai the comparatively few men who engage in intercollegiate games malic loo groat a sacrific«of their time and energy to tliuse contests, and that too many college men expend all the>r own athletic interest in seeing oilier men work, llo would like In have every man take just :i.s ::iue'i athletic exercise a.-, is jr-ooil I'.i!- him. and no more, and lie think* that young fellows ought to .have sense enough to do that of their own volition, without requiring special inducements. No doubt they should have, but they haven't. They are not of Mr. Kan- croft's opinion that "of all forms of pleasure, the rational pursuit of athletics is the highest." Many other forms of pleasure arc very potent with tlieru, and particularly with the plivsicallv LOOK HERE!

They are willing-'to take enough gentle> exercise to make them comfortable, but to get them regularly into active motion in flannels requires strong cx- tra.induccment. The fact that athletics ' is the fashion offers just that necessary inducement to many of those- lazy men. If the interest, in sports is keen and universal the atmosphere of it affects them, and they are stirred by the example of tlicir fellows. The dis- agrecableness of !>eing lcft oul offsets the pleasures of laziness. The result is that where tho interest iu sports is lively a great many more men take wholesome, regular exercise than where it is dull.- Harper's Weekly. —In the courtyard of the palace of * Versailles is a clock with one hand, called "I/'llorloir 0 ,1 0 la Mort du Roi." )t contains no works, but consists merely of a face in tliu form of a sun. surrounded l>y rays.
