IN GRANDMAMA S KITCHEN.
In yrnndumina's kitchen things cot in a riot;
'I he cream In a pot on the shelf
Wuere everything else seemed peaceful and
Got whipped—for T heard It xnvself
And grandmama uid suck * Queer thin,; to
That it made some things better to whip them
Some bold, naughty eggs, that refused to be
On toast with their brothers, maybe.
Were stripped of their clothing and cruelly
Right where all the dishei could see;
And grandmama said though the poor things
The harder the beating, the lighter the cake:
The bright golden butter was petted and
And coaxed to be shapelv ai d good
But it finally had to be taken and spatted
Right hard with a paddle of wood
When grandmama carried the round balls
The witter declared that the coffee was muddy.
Hut n egg settled that little fuss
Then the steak ami the gridiron gut in a bloody
And terrible broil such a muss
And a flat iron spat at grandma in the face,
Aud I ran away from the iju irrelsome place.
—Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
^\t the beginning* of tlie last cen-
tury, when Queen Anne sat on tin*
throne of Great Jiritain, there w e
ten British colonies strung along- tin*
Atlantic coast of North America.
These colonies were various in origin
and ill-disposed one to another. They
were young', feeble and jealous: their
total population was less than 400,000.
In the colony of Massachusetts and in
the town of Boston, on .January 17,
1700, was born Benjamin Franklin,
who died in the state of Pennsylvania
and in the city of Philadelphia on
April 17, 1790. In the 84 years of his
lon^ life, Benjamin Franklin saw the
ten colonies increase to thirteen; lie
saw them come together for defense
against the common enemy; he saw
them throw off their allegiance to the
British erown; he saw them form
themselves into these United States;
lie saw the population increase to
neuMy 4.000.000; he saw the beginning*
of the movement across the Alle-
ghanies which was to give us- all the
boundless West and all our possibili-
ties of expansion. And in the bring-
ing about of this growth, this union,
this independence, this development,
the share of Benjamin Franklin was
greater than the share of any other
With Washington, Franklin divided
the honor of being the American who
had most fame abroad and mo/st ven-
eration at home. He was the only
man (so one of his biographers remind
us) who signed the declaration of in-
• dependence, the treaty of alliance
with France, the treaty of peace with
England, and the constitution under
which we still live. But not oniy had
he helped to make the nation—he had
done more than any one else to form
the individual. If the typical Ameri-
can is shrewd, industrious and thrifty,
it is due in a great measure to the
counsel and to the example of Benja-
min Franklin. In "Poor Richard's
Almanac" he summed up wisely, and
lie set forth sharply, the rules of con-
duct on which Americans have trained
themselves for now a century and a
half, l/pon his countrymen the influ-
ence of Franklin's preaching and of
hi* practice was wide, deep, and abid-
ing. He was the first great American

Who Wan the Jlichest?
Great was the rejoicing in the castle
of Worms about 400 years ago. Near-
ly all the German nobles and princes
were assembled in the spacious hall,
and good-fellowship and enjoyment
Suddenly, however, some one made
an unfortunate remark as to the dif-
ference that existed between the
wealth of the various states. But
none of the rulers would admit that
he was poorer than the others, and
each oi^e strove to prove the truth of
his assert wi.
"What can compare with my do-
minions?'' spoke the prince of Saxony
proudly, "every mountain of which
holds a silver nine?"
"Just consider my fertile lands," an-
swered the count Palatine of the
Rhine provinces, "with their valleys
covered with golden cornfields and
their hills crowned with rich vine-
"When itcomes to that," said Lewis,
the count of Bavaria. "[ consider that
my realm, with its wealthy cities and
stately abbeys, is not one whit inferior
to either of yours."
And so the talk went on. each striv-
ing to outdo his neighbors in the de-
scription of the extent of his terri-
tories and the wealth they contained.
f>ne, however, remained silent and
at last noticing that he took no part
in the discussion, the Others turned to
him with the question:
"Well, Duke Eberhard. and wherein
lies the richness of your possessions?'
Slfwly the well-beloved lord of
"The towns in my dominions are
but small," said he; "nor do I possess
mountains of silver. But there is one
trifle on which I may, perhaps, pride
myself, and it is this: 1 can, at any
time, venture alone into the most se-
cluded forests of my domain, and
when 1 am wearied 1 can boldly rest
my head in the lap of the meanest of
To these words succeeded a mo-
ment's silence, anil tTferi "No need to
argue further!" shouted the others.
• Our lands indeed may contain gold
and silver, but yours bears gcmi."
This is a new game and very inter-
esting. It is played in two ways. The
first is, for example, played thus:
One player is chosen, who must leave
the room while the others choose the
name of some great person. Number
' one is then called back, and each
player asks him a question that will
1 suggest something about the chosen
character. Let us suppose the name
to be that of Abraham Lincoln, as it
is best to start with an easy charac-
ter. A player begins by asking;
Were you an American president?"
t Second player asks: "Did you live
in war times?"
| Third player: Did you free the
j Fourth: Did you live to be old?
1 Fifth: Did you die by violence?
I By this time, no doubt, the lirst
' player knows the name.
! Then choose some great .woman,
I such as Queen Elizabeth, Mary Queen
; of Scott, and so on. The following
are good names for this play: Wash-
ington, Cleopatra, Ca sar, Napoleon
Bonaparte, Victoria, Gladstone.
j The second way this game is plaj'ed
is thus: Let the first player choose a
character and say, for example: "I
I was a great man." Then, turning to
Xo. ■.*, he says: "I was .a Frenchman."
To No. 3: "1 wasa friend to the Ameri-
cans." To No. 4: "I lived in the days
of the Revolution." To No. +
"Washington loved me and chose me
for his companion." To No. (5: "I
made a farewell visit to America and
was welcomed by all the people."
I Now, who was I? Of course, they
will no doubt all be ready to say
"Lafayette. This i- perhaps the best
: way to play "Characters,"
A I'arrot story.
I It seems to be generally agreed tl<it
the parrot is a clever old bird, so the
following little incident which oc-
curred recently may not cause sur-
prise to the vast majority.
, Polly had been punished for reinov-
t ing the cover of a crock and for biting
' the pickles with his tough beak and
| then scattering the remains over his
i mistress' clean floor.
The lesson did not last very long,
however, and one day when Polly was
repeating the offense the cook dis-
covered him in the act. The kitchen
queen happened to be carrying a dip-
perful of hot water, and. more to
scare the bird than to do him any
serious harm, she let fly at him the en-
| tire contents of the dipper.
In fortunately, the aim was too sua
. cessful. for Polly got it literally in the
neck, and with such telling effect that
his beauty was destroyed In brief,
Polly was bald.
For months Polly refused to speak a
wTird. He sat on his perch day after
1 day meditating upon the baseness o<
man. The family were pairn-d at his
silence, but all their efforts'could not
persuade him to utter a sound.
One day a stranger wearing a fur
cap came into the room to deliver soma
groceries. The man and the cap ox-
1 cited Polly's attention.
Upon removing the cap the man's'
head was as smooth as a billiard ball.
' He was bald.
Polly cocked his head on one sicUe
i and studied the stranger for a moment;
1 than he exclaimed exultingly. "Rats!

One of the most daring exploits that
came under my notice during the war
happened in the autumn of '(>? when
my company (C, Third Wisconsin cav-
alry) was engaged in protecting the
border of Kansas and Missouri. Col-
onel Barstow had ordered the entire
regiment from Fort Scott, Kan., early
one October morning on a rcconnoiter-
ing expedition. There was plenty
of bush along the route, which gave
refuge to bands of bushwhackers or
"Home Guards," .as they were called,
with no better fun than firing on our
column as it marched in closed order.
This conduct very much enraged the
scouts detailed with our regiment.
There were three or four of them
under command of William S. Tough,
the most fearless man in that cele-
brated corps named the Buckskin
scouts, and the best judge of horseflesh
I have ever met. In the cour of the
march that day lie had •captured sev-
eral natives, from whom he had ob-
tained information that Captain Ryan,
with a band of from fifty to 100 Home
Guards, was camped on one of the
creeks in the vicinity of Montevallo,
Mo. The scouts were thirsting to
take reprisals against the bushwhack-
ers. and nothing suited Tough better
than to go into their camp. He was
ready and willing to meet the whole
Confederate army if it could be found.
At a council of war early in the
afternoon it was decided that the
scouts should ascertain Ryan's where-
abouts and report his strength. Cap-
tain Tough, with Walt St. Clair and
Jack Harvcv. two of his men. accord-
ingly made preparation for the jour-
ney. I had some trouble in joining
the party because of the difficulty in
securing a perfect mount, which was
indispensable for such an undertaking.
Captain Tough had to select just the
horse he wanted for me and to sec
that the t rappings were perfect, writes
Major J. B. Pond in the St. Louis Re-
public. He took care that 1 should
run no risk from a loosening saddle
girth. But finally everything was
ready, and with a final glance at our
saddle girths and revolvers we were
We rode out from camp, which was
in the opening near Horse Creek, to a
prairie: we*must cross that prairie to
Montevallo. \Ve had not gone far
when Tough told St. Clair and Harvey
to take a road leading to the right.
an l where to cross a creek and to
meet us at a point ten miles distant.
Tough and I were togo to Montevallo
ami follow a creek* where Ryan was
supposed to be camped, about a mile
beyond his own home. It was just
past sundown. Within a mile of Cap-
tain Ryan's hoim* we met a young
woman a-foot. Motioning me to be
silent, Tough approached the woman
and said, hurriedly: "My good lady,
is that Captain Ryan's house?" The
woman hesitated just enough for the
keen scout t< see that she was a
Tough r assured her in a smooth.
Southern dialect that he was a friend,
and an officer on General Coffin's staff.
"1 must see Captain Ryan," he said.
"Where is he? Quick." *
He's just went to camp," was the
reply. "He came home and got his
bay filly He left Old Buck at home
to fee on corn; they've got no corn in
"Where is Old Buck?" asked Tough.
"Right beyond the meathouse," said
Old Buck was the most famous
horse in the country. Ryan was a
horse grower, and this was his favorite.
We rode directly for Ryan's home.
Mrs. Ryan was standing in the door
as Tough accosted her in his hurried
manner. "Mrs. Ryan," he said, after
ascertaining her identity. *1 am

staff. Our army is just across the
creek and the Federals are coming

sent me to get Captain Ryan to join
the armv to-night: mv horse is nearly
dead. Where is Old Buck? Ryan and
I are old"friends. My horse is run
down: I must take Old Buck— my life
is at stake."
Mrs. Ryan seemed to be magnetized.
She led 11s to where Old Buck was
quietly feeding. Tough saw at once
what a prize he had, aud lost not a
moment in changing the saddle. We
started at once for Ryan's camp, my
mind tilled with amazement at
We rode straight up to the sentinel
in spite of his challenge, ami there
again Tough succeeded in deceiving
everybody. I11 a cautionary whisper
lie told the sentinel of his alleged
mission and asked to be conducted to
Ryan at once. The man went over to
Ryan, who was stauding by a tire
talking to a squad of men, and then
returned to pilot Captain Tough and
myself to the rebel chief's side. There
the story about Coffin's brigade and
his summons to Ryan was again re-
peated. "Say nothing to our men
about our going," added Tough, in a
low whisper. "There are so many un-
reliable men and women inside our
lines that it will not do for you to
trust anyone. I rode my horse down
in getting to your house. Mrs. Ryan
insisted on my taking your horse here:
mine will be all right in the morning.
Come, not a moment to waste.' Be
careful!" Ryan hurried to his iiorse
which was saddled as quick as light-
ning. Then we fell in. Tough said to
me: "Lieutenant, you ride ahead; you
know the way to camp."
I led. When we got nearly to Ry-
an's house. Tough said: "Lieutenant,
let us ride past you, we are in a
hurry." f turned aside. As Tough

iven a Medal of Honor.
Lloyd Whe'aton. Twentieth
United States infantry,brevet lieuten-
ant colonel United States army, has
been awarded a medal of honor for
distinguished gallantry in the* assault
upon Fort Blakely, Ala.. April ISO.').
His division commander says of him
on this occasion: "Lieutenant Colonel
Whoaton of the Eighth Illinois led the
advance of my division in the said as-
sault, and he was among the first, if
not himself the first, to mount the
rebel works. His conduct showed
clear judgment. courage ami during of
the highest order." Colonel Wheaton
has a most distinguished record. The
echo of the guns in Charleston harbor
had scarcely died hway when he en-
rolled himself as a member of com-
pany 10. lOighth Illinois volunteers,
and was made lirst sergeant of his
company, returning after the close of
the war as colonel of his regiment,
tie received honorable mention from
his commanding officers on several
occasions. I pon being mustered out of
the volunteer service Colonel Wheaton
was appointed captain of the Thirty-
fofirth United Mates infantr/v. and
upon the consolidation in 1809 was as-
signed to the Twentieth infantry, in
which regiment he has since served.
After several years of reconstruction
duty in the South he established and
built the post of Fort Pembina, N. I) ,
and commanded that important post
some years. In October. 1871, acting
upon his own judgment, and without
orders froin higher authority, he sue
ceedcd by his promptitude, energy,
skill, and daring in suppressing the
Fenian raid on the province of Mani-
toba and in capturing the.,entire band
of raiders. For this brilliant and
daring act he received the thanks,
officially, of Major General W. S
Hancock, commanding the department
I of Dakota: of the British government,
conveyed by the British minister at
Washington through the secretary of
war. and of^ the lieutenant <*«>v. i n.

How to Select Your Meats.
In selecting the various meats for j
the table it will be well to keep in :
mind certain facts concerning the de-
sirable cuts When beef is good it
will have a tine, smooth, open grain,
and it will feci tender when .pinched. 1
The lean should be a bright carnation
red and the fat white rather than yel-
low. The suet should bo perfectly f
white. If the lean should be dark or 1
purplish and the fat very yellow do !
not buy the meat. See that the butch- j
er has properly jointed the meat be- j
fore it goes home. The pieces gener- :
ally roasted are the sirloin and fore ,
and middle rib- In small families j
the ribs are the most convenient
pieces. A whole sirloin i> too large, i
except for a ntuner is . ompany, but
is the piece most esteemed by epi-
Steaks may be cut from the ribs,
inner part of the sirloin, or rump. All ,
other pieces are for thi.i purpose com-
paratively hard and tough. The
round is generally corned or salted
and boiled. It is.also used for the j
dish called beef a la mode. The legs
make excellent s^np; the head and
tail are also used for that purpose.
The other pieces of the animal are
generally salted and ooiled, used
when fresh for soups and stews, when
not too fat. If the state of the weather j
will allow you to keep fresh beef two
or three days, rub with sal* and wrap
it 111 a cloth. In sumniei «1 not at-
tempt to keep it more than twenty-
four hours, and not that length of '
time unless you can conveniently lay
it on ice or in a spring house.
The best piece of corned beef is the
round! you may either boil it whole or
divide it in halve.-,, taking care that
each piece shall have a portion of tin-
fat. Wash it well, and if very salt
soak it in two waters Skewer it up
compactly in good shape, wrapping
the flap pieces firmly around it. Tie
it together with strong, broad tape

hind quarter consists of the ioin,

are made of the head, heart, liver and

is tirm and dry, and the joints stiff.
The lean is a very light, UeiLc-ate red.
and the fat quite white. In buytng

Neal should always be thoroughly

Veal suet may be used as a substitute
for that of beef, also veal drippings.

In.selecting fresh pork the tender-

some. The large prime ham is t'.ken

The forequarter of a sheep contains
the neck, breast, and shoulder, and
the hindquurter the loin and leg. The
two loins together are called the
chine or saddle. The flesh of good
mutton is bright red aud close-
grained, and the fat firm and white.
The meat will feel tender and springy
when you touch it.
Roast lamb is usually served with
mint sauce, and roast mutton with
current jelly and accompanied with
mashed turnips. In carving the hind-
quarter of lamb the leg is separated
from the loin. In curving the fore-
quarter the lirst thing done is to
separate the shoulder from the breast
and carve the parts separately.
A Word to 1 he llridcs.
1 want to ask the young woman who
is soon to take up the blissful task of
a homemakcr if she has ever wasted
sixty minutes in a real good think?
The individual whom she is about to
make the happiest of men has bundled
her up in a perfect potpourri of de-
lightful fancies. His sweetheart, soon
to he his wife, is the dearest of giris.
She has the temper of an angel. Her
tresses are the sunniest, her skin the
fairest, her eyes the loveliest, so
thinks the enamored one. and he con-
siders himself the luckiest of men to
have won such a prize. Don't disap-
point the poor fellow, and you will if
you cannot successfully answer the
following queries: fc
What will you do when you cannot
dodge into mother's every day for ad-
What will you do if the maid of all
w«*k inconsiderately concludes to
leafc you in the lurch?
What will you do if your better hal f
proves a financial failure and your
gowns and hats must be made at home?
What will you do if your bread box
must be supplied from your kitchen
and not from the bake shop?
It is all very nice, very fascinating,
very lovnfblc to be cute, girlish an I
kittenish so long as mother's rooff'
