When you can get Pearline, in powder form for this very reason, why do you want to work over soap, which, if it's good for anything, gets very hard and difficult to cut. . Besides, Pearline is vastly better than any powdered soap could be. It has all the good properties of any soap—and many more, too. There's something in it that does the work easily, but without harm—much more easily than any other way yet known. Peddlers and some unscrupulous grocers will tell you, "this is as good as" or "the same as Pearline." ITS „___„_ FALSE—Pearline is never jou an imitation, be honest— ifnd it back. 30!

Unfiues'.ionaV.y the Seminole is a yery decent Indian— save wlien he has been drinking "cider with a little Jamaica ginger in it"— (a trader told me that was the formula)— and their squaws are models of womanly virtue and industry. That the race remains pure, notwithstanding the inroads of "civilization," is due to the severity of the punishment of those of either sex who are n-uilty tit a breach of the law, for chastity is prescribed by their religion, and the penalty is death. In late years they are in-.sh.in;? deeper into tbe glades, as the footsteps of tho white man encroach upon theirdomain. They live upon game, fruits and the products of their agriculture, though many wants must be supplied at the trading-posts or stores in the settlements, with money or through barter. Foi- many years the trade in alligator Miins and the plumage of birds has been a great source of revenue to them, but tho alligators are almost exterminated, and the bird laws are now so itrictlv enforced that the trader no longer dares to buy their plumes and wings, at least in paying quantity. They still bring in game and turtles, and a 'few alligator steins, or moccasins and other rude manufactures, but every yeitr it grows harder aud harder for them to get money; and, as if to add insult to injury, some of their most fertile keys have recently been homesteaded by white men, after ihe Indians had tilled the soil for years. The women are dressed neatly— I was told that many own sowing mn,- chincs-and they show a degree ol taste in the fashioning of their g-ar- ments. Although a Seminole of either sex has little love for a camera, Mrs. Dodge was able to secure nearly a dozen fine negatives, chiefly of Indian women. _ ___ SIMPLE LUNCHEON DISHES. BOM- to JTnpi.ro » NlL-n l.lttlc Ilopant for tin- Viiczpi-ctnil stnlliKiir. Xolhinp happens oftener, even in the best regulated homes, than having gome one drop in unexpectedly to luncheon. It is a p-ood idea to always be prepared for these little friendly surprises, but there are often reasons •why a housekeeper, be she ever so Bountiful aprovider, will find her larder , •o depleted that she will say to herself: I ' "What shall I tfet for luncheon? I am i at my wits' end. I positively have nothing- in the house fit to set before a guest." All the while she is exchanjr- inp eonrtesies with her fair visitor or visitors, as the caso may be, she is rae-kinf her brain to think of •omethinpr to fret for luncheon. JJou-, my dear, I am the fnemtly Asmodeti's who has been peepinff through your housetop. I have scon your quandary and I am coming into your kitchen to help you. J peeped into your larder, too, in a friendly way ; •mil saw lots of little odds and ends there out of which you and J will prepare a frood luncheon. Out there on the window ledge is a bottle of milk; fetch it in. In that safe I see a box of smoked beef, a jar of butter ami half a dozen oranges, and in I ITic pantry a loaf of bread and » cake i of chocolate. What are yon worrying ! about? \Ve shall have a feast prepared In twenty minutes fit for a royal guest. Take that chocolate and break it in pieces, put it in a saucepan, and pour »om<- boiling- hot water on it In an- otlinr stewpan pour half that quart jar of milk and stand it where it will Ret boiling hot. Now take that smoked beef and cut it in tiny pieces. I!y this time the milk for the chocolate is hot; pour it into the stewpan with tho chocolate and hot water. Fill the empty stewpan with the rest ef the milk; this is for your smoked beef a la crcme. Put a pood-sized lump of butter in it, stand it on tho fire where it will heat gradually and return to your chocolate. Stir the milk and dissolved chocolate well to- fether; stand it on the stove, let it just boil one minute, pour it into your chocolate pot, and stand it in a hot place till ready to serve. Quickly stir two tablespoonfuls of Hour with •noujrh cold water to dissolve it well, leaving no lumps. As soon as the milk begins to boil in tho stewpan thicken with this dissolved flour, stirring briskly to avoid lumps forming. Now, when it is nice and thick, drop in tho smoked beef, let it boll just one minute, pour it in a deep, round platter, or an open vegetable dlah, and stand in a hot place while win nreoajQ vour oranges. Peel them. _____ The .linking ot N»1U. Previous to 1810 nails wore made by hand. It cost 31,00l|p» to perfect a machine that came into UM that year. WOULDN'T BE BULLIED. BY OPIE HEAD. It was the' boast of Col. McGoflln f.ales, of Kentucky, that none but a distinguished 111:111 had the hardihood to propo.se marriage t,o one of his daughters. Tin- okl nun) was an aristocrat by blood and long experience, was afraid of no one, drank liquor gracefully, smoked home grown tobacco and had, while tho owner of n wood yard on tiivcn river, knocked down inure stcaniboatmcn than any other man in his state. He argued, and with justice it must be admitted, tliat it was his duty ,to protect tin; affections of his daughters, to guard them against misappropriation, "See that a man is worthy of yur love before you give it to him," lie was wont to say. "Establi.sh a unise und thereby justify an effect. There are many ways by which a man may distinguish "I WAS SO m.AMKD rAHTICULAn." himself, by bravery, by skill in certain directions; but a woman must look to marriage. There are ways for her to become notorious, to get herself talked about, but her truest distinction must come through her choice of a husband." Finally all the girls save one were married'off. lloso had been plucked by a man who was put olT until he had snatched distinction from the tight hand of fate. And this is tbe story they toll of him. lie had been a failure, a mere nobody,up to the time that ho accepted the challenge of a ring master to ride a trick mule. He had failed as a distiller—and when a man fails at that business in Kentucky there is an organic weakness about him— he had failed as a county cleric, as a town marshal; lie had owned a slow horse, a cow that was dry half the time—in fact it was agreed that there w.as no hope for him. But a circus came along-. He was a candidate for sheriff at the time, but with no chance of success. Even bis best friends guyed him. Well, be went to tile circus and sat on one of the high seats, unhonored, undiscovered. The trick mule was led out and in clue time slaminc-d the senses out of a livery stable negro. Again "IF VOU 1IULI.Y .ME I'M. MAKIi YOU TAKE HEK." tho challenge was shouted, but the negroes s»hooli their heads, and it was not expected that anyone but a negro would coirn: forward. The crowd was disappointed. Was there no one with nerve enough to espouse tho cause of the people? Just at this moment Shanks lioylc, tbe failure, arose and said that he reckoned that he would undertake the job. And ho rode tho mule. And they, say that the poor thing squatted and brayed for mercy. Boyle was elected sheriff and then tbe next your he was short in his accounts, but that made no difference, for his friends, true admirers of gvnius, made np the deficit. Shortly after this ho married Hose Hales. The remaining daughter was named Lily. She was the handsomest flower in the garden, and'no young man in the community bad an excuse to fall in love 'with her. Hut not long ago there strolled into the neighborhood a lank, peculiar looking fellow who said that he was on the lookout for a chunk of a wife. This was said at Ncsbitt's j store, and'it was said in a matter-of- | fact way by the young, lank fellow us ho sat on a nail keg, spitting through THE COLOSEI., LLLV AXD THE GROOM. his teeth. Bill Nesbitt turned to him and remarked: "I reckon you've come to the right place. There's a ffirl up yonder on tho hill—old Col. Bales' daughter. She'd make 3'ou a monstrous fine wife." The fellow spat through his teeth and remarked that ho was somewhat particular as to what sort ot a family ho married into. "I've been on the lookout for quite awhile," said he, "and I ain't seed no woman ylt that jolted me much. I'm patty hard to jolt, I reckon. My brother was once In love with a (ral and he told me that ahe hit him powerful hard, but I went with him to see her and 1 sot square in front of her but she didn't hit mo none to speak of. Yes, I'm so blamed particular that I reckon that "m (join? to have a frood bit of trouble In (Indin 1 a woman to suit mo. I reckon I must have been born that wny, Don't think pap was that way and 1 know brother wan't." ••\Vhat mout be yo' requirements?" Hill asked. "Oh, after all, I don't reckon I'm as hard to please ns some fellers. I'm jest peculiar, that's ;ill. There's a miffhty big- difference in men as to what they domain! of a woman, some insistin' on one thiny and spme another; and the strangest part of it all is that I don't can: so much what she's like as I do about her daddy; and 1 have often thoufrht that I could look at a -fal and tell all about her daddy. I just iiachnl- ly want the old man to be a hummer. J reckon I must be sorter crazy on tho subject." "Ain't it money you're after?" Bill asked. "No, I don't care if the old man hain't got a cent. I jest want him to be different from oilier folks. I. ilon't know why I'm that way. but I am and 1 can't help it. Oh, I could have married lots of putty tfiris with money and bosses and all thai sort of thing, and 1 like them well enough, understand, but I wouldn't marry '1:111 because their daddios didn't strike me rig-lit—had nolhin' to distinpruihli themselves with, so to speak. Well, he added, getting up and stretching' himself, "reckon I'll go up yonder on the hill and sorter look round. I may like up there and I may not; can't tell. Do you s'pose the old roan's at home?" "Yes, and the girl's tliore, too." "Oil, I don't care whether 1 sec her or not. Well, believe I'll go up and sorter prod tbe old feller. Mebby he'll satisfy me and mebby he won't. Good day." lie sauntered up tlio hill. The old colonel was standing at the gate. "llow are you?" "Mid'lin 1 ," said the colonel. Tho lank fellow placed an elbow on the fence, "wollopped" his tobacco about in his mouth a time or two and lazily looking up at the colonel remarked: "I don't live in this here neighborhood. Live a good ways from here. Yes, and 1 'lowed that before the season got busy again, I'd drap over litre aful getber me up a chunk of a wife." "The h—1 you did!" (.be colonel exclaimed. "Yes, before the season gets busy again. But I'm mighty hard to pleivw!, 1 toll you. Don't care much about the girl, though. A feller down yander advised me to come up here and marry vo' daughter, but 1 replied that I was NO blamed particular —" Thuy picked up t,ho. lank fellow and hauled him to a boarding house. And when he came to ho made certain inquiries concerning himself and then said that he reckoned that it was all right, He said that some men bad one way of handling a subject and some another. "\Vo live and learn," he remarked. "Ef we furgit somcthm' to- dav we're mighty apt to think of some- thin' new to-morrow." The old colonel called on tbe fellow; ho was as tender hearted as be was peculiar. Tbe lank man forgave him and they talked pleasantly of the shooting scrapes they had seen; and an intimacy of pity on one side and a peculiar aimlessness on the other grew between them. One day the lank man, sitting in a rocking chair at the window, looked up after a few moments of pondering and remarked: "Colonel, 1 wouldn't marry your daughter, sir." "Well, I gad, that's cool, \\ouldnt marry her? Why, hang it, you have never seen her!" "I know, but that don't make any difference, since she'd have nothiug to do with it 'anyway. I have discovered that there ain't nothin' remarkable about you, anyhow. I don't know ot a more ordinary man than you are, and 1 couldn't afford to have yon for a daddy- in-law." • "Why, you impudent scoundrel, I'm the most 'prominent man in this community; and, I gad, sir, I'm kin to tho 1'eppcrs." "1 don't care if 3-011 are kin to tho lettuce and the onions, you don't strike me as amountin' to much. No, 1 dou't want your daughter." "Why, confound your lank picture, if you bully me I'll make you take her." "Ob, I reckon not." "What! Now look here—I never was bullied in my life aud never intend to be. Blast me if you shan't marry her this very day. I'll teach you to come bullying me, you good-for-nothing wretch." The old man went away snorting, and the fact is that the lank fellow and the girl were married that very day; and now everybody is laughing at the colonel, for the peculiar fellow and the girl had been engaged to each other for more than a year. FftctB About I'oatneo Stump*. Postage stamps, stamped envelopes and postal cards are now all made by contract, none of the work being done in Washing-ton. At each factory inspectors are stationed, who must exercise strict oversight of the whole business, from the taking in of the blank paper to the sending out of the finished product upon requisitions from postmasters, all of which pass through tho department at Washing-ton. Every sheet of paper must be accounted for, and if a single stamp be imperfect or imperfectly printed the whole sheet containing the defective stamp must be sent to Washington for examination and destruction. From three to five millions of stamps are thus sent to Washington every week, where they are carefully counted, checked oft and burned.'—Blue »nd Gray. NERVOUS WOMEN. Tliey Fidget, Fum mill Grow Old Rcfora Thelz- Tllno. "Reform of manner," which the women newspaper writers all over tho country are so vigorously agitating, would seem to be not a question of recent growth but one that has been for many d«endos a cause of comment. Dean Swift, in one of bis short talks, r-.pe.Viis of a elasH of people whose mun- Iicr in one respi»et at least, is much in Heed of improvement; those whose good manners wiil not sulfer them to interrupt you; but, what is almost as bad, will discover an abundance of impatience and lie upon tbo watch until vou have done, because they started something in their own thoughts which they long to be delivered of. Meantime they are so far from regarding what passes that their imaginations are wholly turned upon what they have in reserve, for fear it would slip out of their memory; and thus they confine their invention, which might otherwise range over a hundred thintrs full as good, and that might be much more naturally introduced. Another fault which a keen observer discourses on is the power, which women seem to have lost, of knowing how lo keep htilL This does not apply, she hays, U> our LOligues, but Vo other portions of op.r body that apparently never rest. 1'epose of manner is possessed by so very few that when it is rei'.o;rni/.<!d it appears to be the one most desirable element in the feminine niii lie-up. Watch a woman anywhere—on the street, in the ears, at the theater or in the dancing room—is she not, continually spending some of her nervous force in the movement of her hands or her feet? Isn't she constantly smoothing a stray lock, pushing in a hairpin, fussing with a fan or impatiently tap- j ping her foot? It is a wonder that the small liit of linen and lace that does duty, for a handkerchief is not lorn to shreds, for it is done up into a ball, is folded and unfolded, is held between the teeth or is gripped tiglitly within tlie shelter of a mult. We are a bundle of nerves and we show our weaknesses in the most everyday trivial happenings. Grace can never be ours until we understand that there is no beauty in lidgeting. When we can get. our nerves so well under control that we will not bite our lips, clinch our hands ur tap our feet when worried or annoyed, the first great stop will have been taken and the rest will come easy. If you do not wish to grow old before your time watch these symptoms and nip them in tile bud directly they appear.—Detroit Free Press. AN AUTHOR'S RETREAT. Tile Art or LlvliiR simply 1'ut Into I'rnctl- ciil Operation. Some two years ago a pretty writer resolved to give up the temptations of a big city and betake herself to the upper part of the state and build there a- home. By the savings of a few hundred dollars and the assistance of a brother a plot of ground was secured :uul a comfortable bouse of live rooms was built, all on the same iloor. As you approached the house a large, tree iicemed to lean for support against tbe roof of the piazza, aud gave to that out- of-door place its ample shade. By the way of a small square hall the parlor was reached, while opposite was the breakfast room, with its miniature butler's pantry, quite large enough for a single inmate. The bedrooms, although small, were charmingly furnished in old mahogany, and the smaller of the two was tbe author's sanctum. Three steps down from the dining-room was tbe kitchen, which hud for its contents numerous saucepans, pails, broilers, all tbe paraphernalia by which a g-ood meal could be served, while the broad windows allowed the sun's rays to Hood the iloor at all seasons of the year. Stairs and halls were ignominiously discarded,but the windows of the bouse lent a picturesque charm ou all sides. The house itself was quite a distance from the village, and was in a lonely out-of-the- way spot, yet reached by the trades- people in regular rotation each morn- inir. MissC——, being the daughter ot an army officer, inherited the bravery of her good father, and the loneliness of the situation impressed her not, tlio only defense of the little castle being two dirks, which hung in close proximity near the bed on which she slept. These weapons, the owner declared, could be effectually used in case of an intruder. On a table in the breakfast-room a book of debit aud credit could be shown to the visitor or friend, if one cared to isee this methodical system of housekeeping by which one person could live in a simple and comfortable way for one hundred and fifty dollars a year, the proof positive lying in the items which she showed with pride in her daily ledger. In this haven of rest she pursued her literary labors, and reaped the benefit of that quiet and repose which shone as a bright color from her sweet face.—Harper's Jia/.ar. Doom of th« 1'ottlcontod Lamp. The lamp with tlie paper pettieo.it is doomed Tbe newcomer is made of cut crystal, pedestal, oil well and globe. It is a Vendotne, the height varying with the length of the purse, a thing of beauty by day and a jewel by night. Pedestal lamps/of Dresden and French china, are graceful and very ornamental. The globes are usually opaque glass with gold decorations. Twenty- five dollars is the price of the cheapest china, while the cut crystal lamps are as dear as diamonds.—St. Louis Republic, _ £aved by nifl IMpo. Alexander Brownlic, of Tumut, JTew South Wales, who has reached the venerable age of seventy-six, was lost recently while prospecting In the rang-ei*, and wandered absolutely without food for eight days.
