OBAVMCY 1 Fiu.ky Of Missouri has

himself in favor of free and unlimited

expected to hold the silver men in line
and the platform,the goldites, In other
localities it may prove expedient to
reverse the order. Anyway to catch
the flotsam and jetsam of years, which
belong to the category of articles too
pood to be destroyed, yet of no use to
any one on earth? The familiar and
well-worn proverb, "Keep a thing for
seven years and you will find a use for
it," is responsible for much of our
stupid hoarding1 for the lumber and
rubbish which cumber ourselves afford
admirable lurking places for germs of
disease and a nucleus for dirt and cob-
webs, the plain fact being that we
carry far too much luggage on the
road of life, and would be much better
of? were we to travel lightly burdened.
The housekeeper who wishes peace
of mind will do well each year to re-
duce her stock of garments held over
for contingencies, which may never
arise, to the lowest possible amount.
The masculine mind rebels against Uie
giving away of half-worn coats, hats,
und trousers, and diplomacy is needed
by the wife, who has grown weary in
the struggle to preserve intact from
the fretting moth that portion of her
husband's wardrobe which he will
never wear again. With children's
clothes it is different, and where there
is no further chance of refitting and
remodelling—cutting down Louise's
last summer's frock for Emily, and
turning Gwendolen's brown spring
jackets for (iladys—at once the mother
should dispose of them. None of us
has a right to hoard other people's
property, and an altruistic spirit dic-
tates that what has served its turn for
us, and is still sufficiently presentable
to be valued by a neighbor less for-
tunately endowed than ourselves, is no
longer our own; the neighbor has a
valid claim to call it hers.—Harper's
VENTILATION OF SEWERS
How to Prevent Contamination of
The modern sanitarians agree that
there is little dependence to be placed
on the orinary sewer trap as a means
of keeping sewer gas out of the house.
The chief means of surety lie in thor-
ough ventilation. The ordinary house
gewer should measure four inches and
no more, because a larger pipe is not
so easily or thoroughly flushed out in
evorv part as a smaller pipe. The pipe
should be ventilated iust outside the
house or at its lower end, and the pipe
should be extended its full length to at
least eight or nine inches above the
peak of the roof, and capped by a regu-
lar ventilating plow. By this means air
will be continually pumped through the
pipe. There are a multitude of patent
devices that save plumbers work, and
are supposed to take the place of this
simple method of ventilation, but all
are makeshifts. Do not let the plumb
er persuade you that it is not nccessa
ry to extend the pipe its full size, but
that a two-inch pipe will do for venti
lation. It costs but little more to ex
tend the pipe to the ro«f in full four
inch size. Now, that nearly every vil-
lage lias a system of sewerage and a
water supply, it is especially necessary
that all persons understand that safety
from sewer gas is not in shutting it out
by water trap, but in purifying it by
the introduction of a current of pure
lir. Main sewers should be as thor-
oughly ventilated as house sewers, as
the simplest precaution against the
dangerous accumulation of gas. Vet
this is too often neglected.—N.
For the Woman Traveler.
The best advioe to give the woman
who is traveling" is that she must not
be in a hurry. Hurrying will tire her
out before she starts, will make her
face red, and upset her nerves. Let
her arrange as to time, know exactly
how much she has, and study the ait
3f reaching her train punctually, which
does not mean an hour too soon or
' three minutes too late, but just ahead
i of the hour set. It is her duty to look
