Old india or foulard silk is the best thing I have ever tried for bric-a-brac and small arti cles. All dusters'should be washed and dried after using. There is nothing gained by using a cloth filled with dust. It will not make anything clean. If brooms, both lajrge and small, are often washed and dried, then turned up on their handles, they will sweep cleaner and last longer. There should be a con venient place for keeping brooms, dust pans and cloths. It will save many steps if a set is kept on each floor.—?'

The very most had better not be said.— Eree Lance. English Muffins. 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.' ANT MAN Ne matter how exacting ho may bo, our new Pall Suits will come up to his expect itions.

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. How’s This!
