and the words, acts, and conduct of
others fall to make any impression,
there is abnormality and irresponsi-
bility. What is called the personality
of the man, or his consciousness of
the present, is lost, and conduct and
mentality are without guidance or
Many very startling instances have
been noted which confirm this fact.
Thus, a conductor running daily on
an express train drank heavily
night before retiring. The next morn-
ing he would go out on his train,
attend to all his duties as usual, only
showing a little more reticence and
abstractedness. He was apparently
conscious of everything that went on.
Many hours afterwards on his return
trip he would suddenly become ex-
cited and inquire with great anxiety
to know what had happened, and sav
he had no recollection of anything
from the time of retiring the night
Sometimes this blank of memory
would last during the entire trip. To
his associates this condition was rec-
ognized by his reticent, gruff manner.
Ills work was performed automatical
ly, with apparent Judgment. On sev-
eral occasions of great excitement
from accidents, he would apparently
recover his normal condition, and be
unusually disturbed to know what had
preceded the event.
These blanks continued several
years, and were known only to his
Intimate associates. Another example
was of the president of a very large
manufacturing concern, who drank
steadily in moderation. He had dis-
tinct blanks of memory, sometimes
for days at a time. He was actively
engaged in business, planned and con-
ducted important matters, and yet
was oblivious of events occurring dur-
ing these blank periods.
A third example was that of a trav-
eling man who took both drugs and
spirits. He would have no conscious
memory of where he was or what he
had sold, except when he referred to
his dlarv which he kept with great

These end ribs or shoulder ribs of
roast beef are not only considerably
cheaper to buy, but are richer in nour
Ishment and food value. When buying
one of the three or four rlbp of beef,
say. for Instance, weighing five pounds
you will find that you hardly have
jufflclent meat left after It is carefully
trimmed and the bone taken out. The
difference in price between the first
cut on the rib and the last two cuts is
at least six cents a pound, and when
you ask for a shoulder rib roast nsk

!n the center of the roast, or, if he has
time, to lard it with thin pieces of fat
Another good piece of meat for roast
beef Is the top sirloin, which is not

cause it has no waste.

Butter Cream Icing and Filling.
Make exactly like hard sauce, with
unsalted butter creamed, icing sugar,
and flavoring, but stop adding sugar
before it gets to the hard sauce stage.
It must be spread easily and about
once and a half the amount of sugar
will usually be about the right meas-
ure. It must be thick enough to etand
up. If no fresh butter is to be pro-
cured make a little by shaking some
cream in a Mason Jar or whipping it
to a butter. Three or four minutes is
usually all the time It takes to make
this butter if it is to be used immedi-

teaspoonfuls of rice and simmer until

For Stains on Mahogany.
Use oxalic acid and water, rubbing
It in with a clean cork until the stain
disappears. Mahogany may be pol-
ished with a flannel cloth dipped in
sweet or cold drawn linseed oil.
For Your Chandeliers.
Try cleaning chandeliers with vine-
gar and salt, rubbing vigorously. Wash
off this cleanser, for if left on the
metal will tarnish. Brighten with
tripoli and oweet oil.
Pickled Apples, Peaches and Pears.
A good mixed pickle is made by com-
bining the three different kinds of
fruit. Rub the down off the peaches
with a coarse cloth, peel the pears if
the skin be tough, otherwise simply
remove the bloesom end and peel the
apples, leaving the stems on. Stick
a couple of cloves In each piece of
fruit. For six pounds of fruit allow
three of sugar, a pint of strong vine-
gar, four dozen cloves and two dozen
cassia buds. Cook the syrup 15 min-
utes, skim well and put in the fruit.
Cook until tender, then pack In glass
or stone Jars and seal.
Keeping Fruit.
This hint was given by a fruit grow
er and will be useful to those who j
buy lemons, oranges, grapefruit or
apples In large quantities.
Wipe each piece of fruit with a soft
piece of old nil-wool flannel which ab
sorbs the moisture readily. Wrap each
piece carefully in new oiled paper,
such as confectioners use—not rlcc
paper, which is too stiff. Place tht
wrapped fruit gently and loosely in s
barrel or box; put the receptacle Ir
a cool, dry place, and the'contents
•'Devouring Element."
The West of England is at war.
The enemy is the wood pigeon, w hich
has descended in whole battalions
upon the crops, and the farmers are
out on commando to defend their
acres. The handsome bird that gives
such a pleasing touch of nature to the
London streets is a "devouring ele-
ment" of extraordinary violence. Ru-
ral opinion credits him with eating
his own weight in food every day. One
of the most bitterly resented exactions
of feudal times was the manorial
dovecote, for the lord of the manor _ .
... , , .w l will keep several months,
alone could keep pigeons or kill them, v
and some of the old round towers that
housed the piratical hordes are still
to be found in the English Midlands.
The pigeon is a wary robber and a
well-protected one. We do not know
whether it is true that shot glances
off his breast feathers, as the country
people say, but the most successful
marksmen certainly make a point of
getting behind him. What special
cause has led to the unusual plague
In Devonshire does not seem to be
very clear. Hut we hope the farmers
and their friends will have "good hunt-
ing."—Pall Mall Gazette.
Linoleum Polish.
Odds and ends of candles will make
an inexpensive polish for linoleum.
Use about equal parts of candle scraps
and common turpentine. Place in a
Jar and stand where it Is warm, un-
til the grease is quite melted, then al-
low to cool, where It will be soft and
creamy. Use with a soft cloth and pol-
ish with a second soft cloth. A little
of the grease will go a long way.
The farm is the place to make and save money, but the only place
to keep your money is in a reliable bank. Is you account small? We

one time small. We would like to have you deposit with us and prom-
ise you every courtesy and convenience in our power to give. Why

Pork Chops.
Take as many chops as required,
cut off all fat, then take the chops,
dip one in flour, then egg, and ther
in cracker meal. Salt the flour and
meal. Then take the fat, cut it ir
3mall pieces and try out and cook th€
chops in it. These are delicious hof
or cold with a salad.
About Grease Marks on Silk.
To remove grease marks, lake
lump of magnesia and rub it well or
the spot, letting it dry, then brust
the powder off.
Cream of Corn Soup.
One can grated corn, one pint boll
lng water. Cook gently 20 minutes,
then rub through a sieve. Meit two
tablespoonfuls butter. When bubbling
add two tablespoonfuls flour, one tea-
spoonful salt and dash white pepper
and stir in a smooth paste, then add
gradually to it one pint milk and
cook until smooth and creamy. Stir
all the time. Cook five minutes on
back of the stove, where it will not
burn, and add corn; beat thoroughly
and serve.
Soup From Corner Beef.
The hot liquor from very freshly
corned beef Is a very fine soup stock
but the over salted and long pickled
or saltpetered corned beef Is prac
tically spoiled for use as meat and the
water in which such meat Is boiled
is absolutely worthless for soup stock.
Keeping Flatirons Smooth.
Flatirons can be kept clean and
smooth by rubbing them first with n
piece of wax tied in a cloth and after j
ward rubbing them on a paper or cloth 1
strewn with coarse salt.
