nothing gained by using a cloth

anything clean. If brooms, both
lajrge and small, are often washed

handles, they will sweep cleaner and
last longer. There should be a con

“The Splendor of the Man!”
Talking of jewelry, how regretta-
-Mary Graham in Woman’s'
bly fond is the Marquis of Anglesey
of decking himself out in precious
stones ! “The marquis likes wear
ing jewelry in profusion, doesn’t
he?” asked Mr. Plowden of the mar
quis’’head valet. “Yes, sir,” was
the reply. “And changes his’ jewels
from time to time during the day ?”
“Well, I—er”— “At any rate, he
has-jewels for the morning and jew
els for the night?” “Yes, sir.” ,
If Mr. Plowden had allowed the
head valet to finish his answer be
gun by “Well, I—er”— he would
have learned that the marquis has
been known to wear one set of jew
els for the morning, another for the
afternoon, another for the evening
and another for the night; which
is sad, to say the very least. The
very most had better not be said.—
The regulation English muffins
are made of raised dough and are
baked in muffin rings and on a grid-
die and are turned during the bak
ing so that the muffins come out flat
on both sides. Put one-third of a
compressed yeast cake into one-
third of a cupful of cold Water and
let'it dissolve. Have one and a half
cupfuls of water heated to blood
heat and add to it a teaspoonful of
salt and the dissolved yeast. Sift
one quart of flour and gradually stir
into it the yeast and water. This
forms a dough that requires thor
ough beating. Cover and set in a
warm room for about five hours,
when it will he light and spongy.
Now-,shape the dough into cakes
about one-third of an inch thick
and put in the rings on a warm and
slightly greased griddle. The heat
under the griddle "must be very lit
tle indeed at first, for the muffins
must rise and bake slowly. Later
on, as they begin to rise, pull the
gridclle toward the front of the
stove and cook a trifle more rapidly.
Thirty-five minutes is none too long
to allow for the cooking. When
ready, break the muffins open, but
ter them and serve.'

Largest Prison In the World.
In Prance at the new prison,
which is about eight miles from
Paris, the authorities show their be
lief in fresh air and sunshine, and
the prison is a model sanitarium.
The prison is the largest in the
world and takes the place of three
old ones. It is built in a very sim
ple style, but covers, with its floral
gardens and residences of officials,
more than half a square mile. There
are so many as 1,824 cells; hut, as
there is accommodation on the as
sociation system for about 400 more
prisoners, the total it will contain is
considerably over 2,000.
