It has been found by experiment that
various animal and vegetable oils can
be mixed with weter and broken up
into minute globules of fat, quite
evenly distributed through the water,
forming true emulsion*, says an insti-
tute speaker. Thus liquids can be
made closely resembling milk and
which act like milk. For a time, and
while greatly moved, the emulsion Is
preserved. If left at rest, gravity act*
to bring the fats into a ma\g at the
top like cream. And by churning, the
fats can be gathered into a kind of
butter. In these and other ways, such
artificial milks or emulsions act sc
very like true milk that, reasoning
by analogy, there is a strong argu-
ment that cow's milk is simply an
emulsion. If this is true, there is one
important clue obtained to churning
aright If there are no sacs to rupture
or break, there is no need of the
violent beating which was given milk
and cream, in former days to compel
the butter to “come." Milk being a
simple emulsion, and acting like other
emulsions made by experimenters, all
It needs is gentle agitation, under fav-
orable conditions, to cause the fata tc
collect and form butter.

Tuk recent experiments in Germany
showing a high nutritive value in
leaves of trees is being further em-
phasized by investigations by the
French department of agriculture
which is seeking to transform twigs
and leaves into food for stock. There
is nothing new, however, in all of this
except the method of approach, as the
Romans 2.000 years ago fed their work
oxen on leaves and twigs. The ques-
tion is one of economy. Shall we tind
a crep of leaves as economical as a crop
of grass? There is but one answer to
the question, where grass can be ob-
tained. The experiments mentioned
have been undertaken in Europe be-
cause it was a question largely of kill-
ing the cattle or feeding them on
leaves and twigs, on account of the
widespread failure of the grass crop.

t nder the same roof which shelters
the family, the cattle and other deni-
zens of the barnyard are also housed,
a continuous roof of thatch usually
extending over both house and yard,
says a writer in Demorest’a. The re-
lations between the stockyard and
louse are so intimate that at times,
when the weather ia particularly se-
vere or a suckling calf may be ailing,
it is brought into the house to share
the only apartment with the family.
The rear part of the house is partially
occupied by a large 6tove, m which a
fire burns continuously for eight
months of the year. Tiie stove is ar-
ranged somewhat like a baker's oven. |
The fire ia lit in tbe morning, and,
after two or three hours, when the
wood la reduced to coals, the Hue
plate, or damper, is shut; the brick
walls being very thick, tiie oven re-
mains warm until the next day, when
the fire is lit again.
This stove serves every purpose of
the household, even supplying com-
fortable sleeping quarters on top for
the old people, who can not stand the
cold ao well as the younger folks. The
rest of the family pack themselves
away at bed time in a gallery which
runs across the rear of the apartment,
above the stove, the children occupy-
ing one end, the seniors the other, in
some sections an innovation has been
made by inserting board partitions in
the balcony, thus (iving more privacy
to the sleeping quarters of the differ-
ent members of the family. On Satur-
day all the members of the family
crawl into the oven in turn and have a
good wash, using a little home made
wooden tub and a bundle of birch
twigs. An abundant supply %t the
latter is gathered in the spring while
the leaves of the birch are green and
fragrant. Tiie furniture of the house
is usually very meager, consisting of
home-made benches and tables and a
variety of articles which have found
their way there from the homes of
their wealthy neighbors.
A Cargo of Onions—l’eople who had
occasion to go down to the Delaware
river front last evening in the neigh-
borhood of Dock street, encountered,
as they approached the wharf, the
pungent odor of onions to a marked
degree. It was as though a ten-acre
lot with onions laid only an inch apart
was making itself heard from. In-
vestigation showed that tiie smell
came from the schooner Eva May,
which has on board a whole cargo of
onions—about 300 tons of them—
which she brought from Bermuda.
The captain never carried that kind
of freight before, and said it was
ra\hcr bard on his olfactory nerves
just at first. However, he and his
crew are used to the odor, and don’t
mind it. One advantage they have,
which is that no one on board suffers
from insomnia. The officers and
sailors sleep like tops when off duty,
and have to be kept moving to make
them stay awake when on w^tch. This
is due to the soporific effect of the
onion smell, and any one who can’t
sleep and would like to, can gratify
his desire by taking a stroll down to
Dock 6trcet wharf. — Philadelphia

Cheap Kid Gloves.—The cheapest
kid gloves in trade are made from the
skins of kids and lambs that are born
dead. The reason they wear out so
quickly and tear so easily is because
they have no elasticity. These dead
skins are called schmachen kid and
the gloves retail at SI or less. To a
judge of gloves the difference between
a schmachen and a kid is as plain
as the difference between a gingham
and a linen shirt. Some of the heavy-
gloves sold for kid are made of colt

effect by hanging them against the

Anotiier rug is suspended lengthwise
to form a top. A narrow divan seat
witli four or five large cushions is ar-
ranged at one end, and the rest of the
space is tilled with a small eastern oc-
tagon table ion which are laid cigars
and cigarettes, matches and a silver
taper* and a couple of oddly-shaped
chairs. A Turkish lamp, with s red
glass shade, gives just the amount of
light desirable, and a few eastern
arms arranged in the background of
rugs will add greatly to the effect
Use; and Annul of Gloves.—When
putting gloves on begin by buttoning
the second button: then, when but-
toned to tiie top, you can easily fasten
the first button without tearing the
kid. Never remove the gloves by
pulling the fingers, but by drawing
tiie part covering the wrist over the
hand and leave them thus wrong side
out for some time before turning them
to their proper shape. Always lay
gloves lengthwise—never roll them
Apple Sump—Cut apples as for
pies and till a rich undercrust of a
good thickness; cover with a thick top
crust and bake in a slow oven for
about an hour; when baked remove
tbe top crust, add sweetening, season-

then remove part of the apple. Place
the top crust in an inverted position
upon what remains, aud the apple that
