"Not a word" answered Edith.
"You'll never guess. So I might as
well tell you."

exclaimed Hazel "there v as much
good-natured rivalry between the sev-
en for his attentions. Each tried to
seem the most popular. When Archie
would suggest a certain evening to
call he was almost positive the reply
would be 'I have a previous engage

Punctuation la Plane Playing.
A Joke la going the rounds of the
press about the girl whose music
teacher wished to compliment her but
of whom be could only say that she
played the rests excellently. This Is
however real praise of a sort for It
! not every young student of music
who Is careful about playing the rests
well. Indeed a great many players
seem to forget that the rests are Just
as much of the piece as la the punctu-
ation In a sentence. Nowadays peo-
ple do not put In so much punctuation
as they used to do but the pauses In
the voice are there Just the same and
are readily understood by good read-
ers and always regarded. The rests
in music are like the pauses In read
ing that are needed to give expres-
sion to the sentences. If the player
slights the rests or extends them too
long the whole effect of the musical
sentence Is spoiled.

Telephone Conversations as Evidence.
In a recent case It was admitted
that a telephone conversation had tak-
en place between a representative of
the plaintiff and the defendant but It
was claimed on the part of the defendant-appellant
that each party to
the conversation could testify only to
jwhat he said and could not testify to
what he beard through th telephone
presumably upon the ground that he
might have misunderstood what the
lOther party said. In declaring this
objection untenable the appellate divi-
sion la the second department perti-
nently said that such a rule would ad-
mit fragments of conversation per-
haps meaningless and probably unln-
struotlve. "The conversation that Is

cutting through them for hundreds of

a depth of from thirty to sixty feet

dredges can take it out in great quan-

cliffs are not high similar operations
have been put under way. Here it is
said that the conditions are similar
to those found at Lee's ferry except
that there are evidences of even rich-
er values. Parties have gone out Into

The dwellers In Kensington's most

the too enterprising "fiat" builders
.will encroach on the green turf and
greener trees of Edwardes Square and

Edwardes Squareites score there still

that so long as there is a male resi

earth are all calculated automatically

pearance the Scott gun resembles
somewhat a ship's compass.
The aviator must first sight the ob-
ject at which he Intends to lire
through a telescope that Is attached
to the gun. In order to attain the nec-
sary accuracy when dropping the
bombs it is of first importance for the
Kimner to know the speed at which he
is traveling and the height from Jhe
ground. The speed is determined by
the use of a stop watch attached to
the gun in conjunction with the tele-
scope. In addition tables have been
!reinred to be used by the aviator in
making his measurements.
The gun is to be tested from a "riot
monoplane" which has been built by
Alfred Moisant a brother of the late
John Molsfiiit. .The monoplane will

TO MAKE CLARIFIED BUTTER
Method of Purifying It Which Makes
It at Good as Finest Flor-
The following are some of Dr. Kitch-
ener's butter recipes
Clarified Butter. Put the butter ln
a nice clean stewpan over a very clear
slow fire watch it and when It melta
carefully skim off the buttermilk etc.
which will swim on the top. Let it
stand a minute or two for the lmpurl
ties to sink to the bottom then pour
the clear butter through a sieve Into
a clean basin leaving the sediment at
the bottom of the stewpan. Butter
thus purified w ill be as sweet as mar-
row a very useful covering for potted
meats etc.j and for frying fish equal
to the finest Florence oil.
Burnt Butter. Put two ounces of
fresh butter Into a small frying pan.
When it becomes a dark brown color
add to It a tablespoonful and a half
of good vinegar and a little pepper
Oiled Butter. Put two ounces of
fresh butter Into a saucepan set it at
a distance from a fire so that It may
melt gradually till It comes to an oil
and pour it quietly from the dregs.
This will supply the place of olive oil
and by some It Is preferred either for
salads or frying.
