Milk can be sterilized nt*bome. Ab-
solutely clean bottles are necessary.
Soak them In soda and hot "water be-
fore using, and scald just before tbe
milk Is put into them. The milk
should be perfectly fresh. Fill the
bottles, cork them tight with anti-
septic cotton, lay them in cold water;
beat slowly to the boiling point, boll
for an hour and let them cool in tlie
water. I)o not uncork until the milk
is to be used.
Boston baked beans are now served
as a salad. The quantity of oil to be
used depends on the quantity of pork
used in cooking the’beans, and for so
dentary people It is well to omit the
pork. In this ease three or four table-
spoonfuls of oil may lie used for a
pint of beans. Stir Into It half a ten-
spoonful of paprika, a few drops of
onion Juice and two tablespoonfuls of
vinegar. Mix this through the beans
and turn them onto the serving dish.
Cover nnd let them stand half an hour
in a cool place. The salad may be gar-
nished with plmolas nnd slices of tiny
cucumber pickles, nnd n tenspoonful
of finely cut chives may be added If
it is almost time to begin to think
of moths, for the time to remember
them is before the first one appears.
With these pests prevention Is not
only better than cure, but It is
absolutely essential. Moth balls, tar
paper, t lie most expensive cedar
chests, are useless after one wretched
iiiRoet has found u lodging in u gar
inent. Therefore.'before the moths ap-
pear. tnke the necessary precautions.
Beat nml brush furs and woolens, not
overlooking a single pocket or fold,
nml. when perfectly certain that not a
moth or nil egg la there, pack the
garments away where moths cannot
reach them. That is the whole secret.
Furs should be sent to cold storage,
which Is safe nnd cheap. As a matter
of precaution, it Is well to reserve one
closet, which line with tar paper,
covering the cracks around the door
und stuffing up the keyhole, llnng or

A year ago a manufacturer hired a

A few weeks ago the manufacturer
looked up from Ids work to see the
boy standing beside bis desk.
"What do you want?” he asked.

The Country Newspaper.
“The country newspaper Is the most
useful of all the agencies which stamp
the impress pf progress upon villages
and inland cities. Without the aid of
local newspapers towns are, as a rule,
thriftless and dead. It is common for
all great men to speak with contempt
of local newspapers, but the village*
newspaper, makes piore great men out
of less material—more bricks* without
straw—than any other factor in poli-
t*i(Jrs. and is* the*ladder on which men
climb to local distinction as the begin-
ning of wider thine. The advent of
the local newspaper has always dated
the increased thrift of .the community.
The local "newspaper is the life of the
locality, and the measure o°f its‘sup-
port. as a rule, measures the advance-
ment of people*”—Kilos (Mich.) Daily

It was about a week ago that, return-
ng one afternooi} from a fishing trip,
he “met the accident that turned his
iron gray hair a shade Ughter and still
1 sleep .1 threatening nightmare
to his wife. •
LangtiiThnd spent the afternoon Ash-
ing off shore and was slowly rowing
jii toward the little lagoon wheic he us-
ually ties up his boat after such trips,
lie wjjs within a couple of hundred*
yards of tbe shore when, happening
to glance aropnd to tnke his bearings,
he noticed a bunch of tangled drift
almost on bis bow. He gave one oar
n# twist to drive his*boat closer to it.
Lik» yll shore dwellers, his eyl* roved
over it to see if it contained wreckage#
of a*ny value. As his boat swished
alongside bq “gave it a poke with an
oar to stir up the flotsam. IIis eye
was on a large-sized box jammed in
between two pieces ofjnles. He gave
ii ,i poke with his oar to see whetlnr
it was fast and filled or empty. The
oat glanced on the side < f tlje box and
•struck a round, smooth thing that
looked like a burnished piece of tire
hose. The tiling moved; a sharp ugly,
looking bea#k reared itself out of the
ocean and two wicked round glazed
eyes stared at Langtin oyer the side
of the boat.
What horror wfls this? In all liis
seafaring experience Langtin hnd0 nev-
er seen the like, and it was not until
a long snake-like tentacle flashed iy>
and fell heavily gcross the boat that
he ryallziAl tl at he was fairly in the
grasp of the dreaded devilfish. In its
rage the octopus, swayed the boat in
the clutch of its powerful tentacle. It
required no effort bf the imagination
for Langtin to foresee his end should-
lie once be brought within reach of
that powerful beak.
He stooped a yd grasped a hatchet
that Jay near him in the stern of the
hont.° Stepping cautiously but swiftly
forward, be struck a savage blow at
the only tentacle yet within reach. The
tough muscles yi el tied like rubber un-
der the axe. lie knew that this was
but one of but seven or eight arms,
and despair almost overpowered him.
Again and again he struck, each time
severing pieces of the terrible arm that
was trying*to overturn* tbe boat and
drag it down. The tentacle bejjan to
weaken, but while he was yet hack-
ing at it another shot out cf the. wa-
ter nnd fell heavily across .the boat;
another followed it
All this time lie was dimly conscious
of his wife running up and down the
beach, crying ftcnziydly for help. She
could see plainly the struggle that was
going on, and knew that something
lyrrible was.happeniyg, without* at all
’comprehending: what monster it was
that liadjier husband in its grasp. In
her, agony n« waded out waist deep
into the water. The sun was turning
to a red globe of tire i.i tbe wetft, but
it had lost its heat. * •

ble situation his mind took in tbe min-

very life out of him had no further
power to daunt him. He seized the
repulsive, slimy thing with one baud
and sank with it to the bottom of the
boat. With two powerful blows where
it bent across the thwart he severed
it from the creature’s body.
A few more blows were needed to
sever tbe remaining tentacles, and tbe i defined in tin* thirty-fifth year of
great devilfish, with inarticulate
noises, slid off into the water, leaving j
an inky trail behind it.
It was none too soon. With the last j
