SAUSAGE AKD HAilS.
iiow to Preserve h Portion of the
Freab Meat for Future
There are times wb'ea Ronplc in coun-
try homes hate an otrsapply of fresh
meat and would be glad to put a part of
it in shape to keep far a daynben un-
expected visitors droailn. perhaps just
before dinner. T -
At butchering tbwke hogs are
dressed and left to obo! beware cutting
up: the leaf lard ti.l ea out cut up
retidy to be tried out; ribs taken outand
seme of the meat trimmed off for
sausage: ribs hung up in a cool place
to be eaten fresh; hams cutout and laid
on a table or board down cellar ready-
to be salted; and all the scraps of meat
that are trimmed from the side pork
and from the backbone (and there is
much that you hardly know what to do
with) set one side for sausage. In our
grandmothers time the feet and ears
were thoroughly cleaned and a dish of
souse prepared from them but young
America has long since shown a dis-
taste for the time-honored dish. The
hog's head was also prepared usually
baked and served for a Sunday dinner
by our Xew England mothers.
The sausage meat should be prepared
as soon as possible; a meat cutter may
be found at the meat market which can
be hired for a small sum or the meat cut
in a Terr short time. Have it reedy in
long strips fox the machine. When cut
use this seasoning: For every pound
of meat allow one heaping teaspoonful
each of salt and of pulverized sage and
an even teaspoonful of black pepper;
mix all together and thoroughly mis
with the meat. Put the sausage in a
pan pour hot lard over the top; when
cool cut a paper to fit the top and
smooth down; tie another paper over
it; put in a cool dry place and it will
keep for a number of months and be
ready to use at any time. Cut in slices
put in a spider with a litt le wat sr cover
and turn ones; when water is cooked
out it will be delicious.
Hams are better salted with dry. hot
salt; take about what salt will rub in it
one time heat in an iron dish and give
the hams a good rubbing; repeat the
second day after. When salt is taken
f roni the Etove give it a good sprinkling
of black pepper and stir in half a cup-
iul of sugar; repeat the rubbing until
the hams do not seem to take up any
more. They are then ready to hang in
the smokehouse; if yon have none & bar-
rel -svill answer but is inconvenient in
lifting them in and out when you build
a smoke. "When the hams are smoked
nearly enough leave in the smokehouse
or barrel and occasionally when files
are troublesome build a smoke nnder
them. In summer you can turn to the
smokehouse .for a change of diet and
bring forth meat good sis any in the
SMART 'WINTER HATS.
Different Shapes Are In Vogue and
There Is Variety In Trim-
ming. The degree of smartness of a hat de-
pends this season less on the shape than
on the color and trimming and setting
aside certain special shapes belonging
strictly to the domain of the hatter
(foremost among which stands the "au-
tomobile" with its wide low crown
very narrow at the base) almost any
shape may be converted intoasmart ar-
ticle sailors included.

it has been so added to if in the case of
the saucer or mold forms or it has been
so modified out of its original hat
shape by nipping in here and turning
up there as to be unrecognizable even
if there were no trimming to mark its
outlines. Complicated methods of cov-
ering capote shapes are adopted such
as pipings rouleaus of velvet sewn to-
gether spiral fashion or small bouil-
lonnes divided by narrow ruched vel-

cant in size comprises a vast amount of
needlework. Herein resides the novel-
ty of a good many of the new models

the milliner herself. Among the medium-sized
hats are several lined with
satin machine stitched in regular rows.
In some cases they are covered with
velvet only whereas others have the
crown covered with satin surrounded
by a high folded band of velvet. Cra-
vats and kerchiefs made of thin silk
with complicated hemstitched borders
and scarfs finished -with hand-knotted

These are essential factors of success
In every undertaking. In keeping house
they are as important as in the conduct
of a publishing house a factory or oth-

for everything and everything in its
place" and "Each one should have his

good maxims on general principles but
every housekeeper must be a law unto
herself having rules but being careful
that they are not so numerous or so
exacting as to mar the comfort and

THE SAVAGE RHINOCEROS.
Taking; 111m I a Dnnscroni Task-
Fears :totliInsr anil In Aiwa j a
Heady for a Flclit.
I have helped to capture six African
rhinoceroses and I believe that all of
them ire yet alive and serving their
purposes in circuses and zoos. I have
seen a herd of 30 wild elephants drhen
into an inclosure and made captive al-
most without trouble. 1 have trapped
four and five lions and tigers in a week
with newer a man even scratched. As
for wolves and hyenas they can be
caught -as readily as fish. It's when you
tackle a rhinoceros that jou tackie
business. It's worry and work and dan-
ger from the moment you set about it.
I am talking about the one-horned
black rhinoceros of Africa. When na-
ture created him she gave him more
strength according to bulk than any
other animal on earth. She gave him
an abundance of muscle and but few
nerves. He has a hide almost bullet-
proof a vision like a hawk a sense of
hearing as keen as a fox and his cour-
age is really sublime. You may add to
all this that the rhinoceros is always
mad. The fiercest of other beasts have
their good-natured hours but this fel-
low always has a chip on his shoulder.
Nothing is too big or too small for him
to charge. He'll turn on steam and go
crashing through the bushes after a
jackal at one time and an hour later
w!ll nlinrn-A infn n tlpffl ftf plpnhBTlts Or
scatter a family of lions. It is agreed j
by all men who have studied him that ;
he is totally without fear. If he ever j
runs away from anything it is through
mistake. Hut for two defects in his '
physical makeup he'd soon exterminate j
all other animals in Alrica. iiis range oi
vision is like that of a whale dead
ahead and he is so bulky for his size
that he can't turn except in a consid-
I captured Barnum'.s first rhinoceros
and that animal cost him more than any
four lions or tigers he ever owned. I
was the first animal hunter sent over
to Africa by an American and I had it
all to learn. I sent home lions giraffes
elephants buffaloes and hyenas with-
out any great trouble but it was a
whole jear before 1 pot my first rhinoc-
eros. I had to n.ake a study of the
animal and take advantage of his rhar-
npfpristies. The natives had killed one
occasionally but such a thing as cap-
turing one alive had oever ben lieartl
of. It seemed to me that the easiest
way was to noose Mm. There arc well
defined paths all ttrough the forests
of Africa and these are used more or
less by all animals especially where
they lead to water. I made a noose in
a new two-inch rope big enough to
take in a rhinoceros and then climbed
into a tree above to manage it. I spent
the best pah of three days up there
before a victim camo along. Hewented
me and was suspicious but neverthe-
less came on and was neatly noosed.
I believe that rope would have held a
schooner at anchor off Montank Point.
but that rhinoceros made one plunge
and broke it like a thread. I hadn't
realized his strength up to that time.
My next move was to seek a poinfron a
path several miles from camp and erect
a barricade.. This barricade) ran to a
Y-shaped point and was made strong
enough to hold an elephant. If a
rhinoceros took that path he would fol-
low it to the last inch and when he was
in close quarters we would be on hand
to tangle him up. We had a visitor
almost before we were ready. When
the rhinoceros got along to the barri-
cade he halted for a minute to sniff tbe
air. Then Jig. lowered his head and j
went charging down ine patii.
I believed we had him for sure but he
struck the logs and rocks at the point
of the V with the power of a wild loco-
motive and battered his way through.
I now turned to a pit. At a soft spot
on a path leading to a water hole we
dug a pit 20 feet long. 10 feet wide and
feet deep. This we covered with
poles branches and dirt until no one
could detect the danger lurking be-
neath but we had our trouble for our
reward. The rhinoceros does most of
his roaming by day and is careless
whether he follows a path oi crashes
through th; bushes. Tbe night after
the pit was ready we caught two hyenas
in it. The next day we caught a deer
the next night another hyena. The one
animal we wanted did not appear. We
tried again at another point and this
time it was a success because I had
the details more in hand. When the pit
had been prepared I went up the path
about half a mile to an opening and
hung a red shirt on a bush. I knew that
if a rhinoceros sighted that shirt he
would charge the bnsh. I climbed a
tree and waited and in iese than n
hour I heard an old fellow coming full
tilt. He went through the bush like
an avalanche and on the path he found
a red handkerchief. He picked it up
on his horn and charged down the
path. On the fai side of tbe pit wa6 !
another red shirt and in hk anger the
beast didn't look for a trap. He was
dusting along at 30 miles an hour when
the earth gave way and he landed on his
head at the bottom of the pit. Vfebad

and I don't believe he ever got over be-
ing mad. -X. Y. Commercial Advertiser
Electricity and Skin Coloring
It has been noted that in the surgical
uses of electricity the color of the skin
has been changed and there is no doubt
that the electric current has a direct
action on the coloring matter or pig-
ment of the epidermis. Now it is neith-
er impossible nor even improbable
that electricity acts on the pigment
since it always leaves behind it light-
colored scars. Hence to bleach a Kaf-
fir or a Zulu a Yolof or an Abyssinian

THE FIRST GATLIKG GUNS.
An Experimental YV enpon AVns Mnde
and Tested nt Indianapolis
The early inception of the gatling
gun is wrapped in much obscurity.
Some Prench critics claim that their
mitrailleuse antedates it but there
is absolutely incontrovertible proof
that not only is that not so but that
the French government made strenu-
ous efforts to secure exclusive control
of Catling's intention; failing which
their competing mitrailleuse quickly
followed the adoption of the doctor's
gun by the American authorities.
Some good Christians have claimed that
Dr. Uatling invented this famous
weapon from humanitarian motives
an argument which has some weight
as we well know that a mob or a
regiment even will ery quickly get
out of range and danger when once
it is known thai such a gun is facing
them. The doctor himself calls his in-
vention a "peace-maker" but with the
greatest respect to him I do not believe
he had any idea of saing life or any-
thing of that sort in mind while at
work upon the gun whatever he may
hac thought of it since. There was a
field for weapons offenshe and de-
fensu e the more murderous the former
the belter and from what then existed
in firearms and from the fertility of
his own brain the gatling gun was
eolved the first of its kind.
His experimental gun was made and
totted before military men and experts
at Indianapolis in lSt2. When the first
lot paid for by Dr. Gatling was ready
for shipment to Gen. Butler the factory
burned and with it Lis guns were de-
stroyed and his hopes blighted. An-
other year and many thousands of dol-
lars were spent to remake the patterns
and drawings and a new batch of guns
a year of heart-burning pinching
and sacrifice that many of us at some
time or another have experienced and
therefore can sympathize with the suf-
ferer. Gen. Butler used some of these
guns on the James river near Itich-
mond and the way in which their in-
ventor cherishes the records of the ex-
ecution wrought by them is amusing
when one thinks of the humanitarian
theories attributed to their origin.
In 1S66 the government officially ap-
proved the gun and after tests that
make an inventor shiver to think of
placed an order for 100. j
Then not only did the powers or l.u-
rope order guns but so did CIiIbb Ja-
pan Slam Egypt and tin? South Amer-
ican countries. A machine gun that
spread devastation in a swath wider
tnan a company of infantry and fired
inch bullets at the rate of 1200 a min-
ute (to-day fired electrically its speed
is slightly in excess of 3000 per min-
uted) was a revelation to most foreign
experts and no Christian or other pow-
er could long withstand the temptation
of mowing down its Christian or other
foes at any such rate and by machin-
ery. Self Culture.

1 DRESS NOTES.
TVhat Is Ileitis "Worn In Fall Cos-
tnnies I'opulur Colors for
Combinations of materials and colors
in one gown appear to be quite as fash-
ionable as they hate been for many sea-
sons past despite the reports which
came early in the henson to the effect
that new autumn gowns were to be
formed of a single muterial and d e.
Ulue is certainly one of the dominant
colors now in ogue for it is blue in
erery tint and tone for day or evening
wear. It ranges from deepest "Dewey"
or admiral blue to the palest hyacinth
and knenderdyes. Heliotrope and gray
are a close second for demi-dress toil-
ets and a rivnl in evening dress is pink'
in all its lovely guises from faintest
seashell shades to deepest rose with a
glow of damask red in the dye.
Eeryonc knows that a tweed cos-
tume is one of the most enduring and
valuable gowm. that a wonlan can pos-
sess. To s-ome minds it surpasses even
the renowned English serge in those
sterling qualities that are the chief at-
traction to the woman of modest means.
In spite of the usefulness of serge
fabrics so long held upas modtl weaes
for general inses a genuine nil-wool
tweed is certainly a very wise selection
for hard winter wear.
Each autumn season black French
felt of the softest lelvcty surface is se-
lected for the intermediate hat follow-
ing the straws ami fancy braids of the
summer and before henty vehct is re-
quired. This fall part icularly in black
satin very largely takes the place of
felt among the stylish models. ery
few of these hats show color of any sort
introduced in the trimmings the only
kind of decoration used being the rich-
est and blackest of os. rich plumes with
a band of jet passcmetitcrie around the
crowr. and sometimes a tiny glittering
line to correspond on the extreme edge
of the brim. On some of the graceful
shepherdess styles and English walking
hats the downy plumage droops on the
hair at each side of the brim. An entire
black satin costume (including skirt
jacket and lint) is considered one of the
most attracthe of the autumn fashions
The new vicunas and Trench camel's
hair goods are partieuhuly handsome
this season and thus far some of the
mostattractiveand stilish tailor gowns
lime been made of these materials.
While very protective In quality these
fabrics are wonderfully light. Weight
does not iuvariably mean warmth and
these new goods are soft and downy
in their strictly pure wool web and
woof. The black goods in these weaves
are especially handsome.
Fancy satin or r loth medallions lat-
tice and scroll designs in open-work
mohair and other silky wool braids
chenille bits of fur und silk cord all in
new appliqued effects are very fashion-
able used as a garniture for stylish cloth
costumes. Ttiis form of trimming is
more dressy than stitching or rows of
braid although these simple styles of
garniture are in highest favor. The
medallion and arabesque form of orna-
mentation appeal more especially to
women who are fond of elaborate color
effects and !t is at this time of ear that
brilliant tones are most appropriately
worn. The new appliques impart
marked stj le tn the gow n. but the like-
wise add considerably to th weight es-

one was attracted by the novelty of his
surroundings but this wearing off he
'.nissed his mother and locked about
for her. When he saw bcr on the rear
seat a disconsolate yell announced the
discovery. His two brothers tried to
pacify him but to his jtung mind the
four scats that separated them were
aa impassable gulf not to be bridged
by human means and such being the
case he was not to be cemforted. Tho
mother leaning as far forward as she
could endeavored to esnlain that she
would come to him as soon as the car
stopped but the child only cried the
more. Every ono on the car was by
this time interested and sj mpathy and
advice were freely offered. An athletic
young man in the seat behind the boy
started to pick him up with a view to
passing him over the backs of the s?ats
to his mother. The boy shrank away
from him in deadly fear -ure that he
wa3 the boy-eating ogre of childish

man lobster red hastily .tt down.aad

When the bee happened he had

Very few farmer boys are ad-

" ai t pretty sweet boy of the
'nun and city. It is fortunate
for the farmer boy and his coun-
tiy that he does not smoke cigar-
ettes. The farm must continu-
ally su rly brains and energy
and stamina to tlie cities and it
lould not do this if the farmer
boy smoked the brain-stealing
igarette. Tlie twenty-sixth na-

Ilo Wanted a Compromise.
If General Joseph Wheeler does
ns active fighting in the Phillip-
pines where he has recently been
ordered as he did in the South
during the civil war he is apt to
make his presence felt. General
Ilorace Porter tells the following
story which is both true and
timely: It was about the middle
of the civil war when a freshly ap-
pointed colonel with a newly en-
. listed regiment joined the Union
forces in the far South. They
were beautifullj new both in ex-
perience and in uniforms and
they were very anxious to fight.
The routine of camp life drove
iiiem u.-iosi 10 in 111 my. uuu
bright October morning word was
received that a small detachment
of General Wheeler's cavalrymen
were on the other side of the hill
and a force started out in pursuit.
The next day the Confederates
were reported miles distant in the
opposite direction. The third day
the new colonel and a veteran
brigadi-r started out for a pleas-
ure ride. A mile from camp they
rode into the fugitive Confeder-
ates who had been circling
the canp for a week. It was a
narrow escape bnt they got away
nnharrr'.3. After it was over the
general said to the colonel:
"Well what do you think of
"Ts Wheeler in this neighbor-
hood much of the time?'' replied
tlie col-el evasively.
"AH the time. He is here there
nnd everywhere. What do you
thi-Jc of the prospect?'
"WeV. answered the colonel re-
flectivelj" "I wonder whether
there isn't some way this infernal
thing can be compromised."
"Bun worries" is descriptive
enough but not so proper a title
as "tea trots' but they mean the
same. One victim opens her heart
to the Cincinnati Inquirer in this
"I never remember finishing n
sentence which T have commenc-
ed at one of these functions. Be
fore I have a chance to round it
off I am interrupted dragged
awav or confronted with a new
face to whom I am introduced. I
begin again and again. I have
the sajne trouble with my cups o
tea I put them down half emp-
tied to greet some new arrival
to find them whisked away and
each one repeats the history of
"I leave these 'bun worries'
with a trail of unfinished phrases
and undruuk cups of tea behind
me. I go home iu a thoroughly
unkempt frame of mind with a
tendency to leave off everything
I undertake and start something
fresh. It is really a sort of dis-
ease a sort of 5 o'clock tea paral-
ysis. Just listen to any of these
tecoptions and you will agree
with me. The women talk in spas-
modic staccato gasps. You never
get to the point of a story or tho
telling point of a. biography. Ev-
ery one has her eye on the door
for the new arrival who may
prove more interesting or more
desirable than the one she is talk-
"'Pardon me' seems to be the
excuse for every form of conver-
sational rudeness. I believe this
form of nervousness is one of the
many symptoms of the rational
unrest or lack of poise of which
foreigners so bitterly complain."

With tbe lid; of summer travel

question "Are you seasick?" be

I never kiow an;oiin succeed

men are more aM. tct to seasick-

hand they stand it better. A wo-
man isn't so much tortc".. by the
pangs as she is worru. by the
prospects of becomin; dishevel-

fights to keep up app-urauces as
