HOME HINTS. I HOME .HINTS. I f For indigestion try the beaten white of an egg in a wineglassful of water directly after meals. To get rid of mice where a cat cannot b6 kept, sprinkle oil of peppermint round about their haunta. If soot falls on the carpet cover it thickly with dry salt. Then sweep it up quickly and it will leave no stain. Kid shoes can be kept soft and free from oracks by rubbing them once a. week with! pure glycerine or castor oil. To remove dark stains on the skin of the neck bathe the parts lightly with lemon juice, and the dark marks will vanish. Whole cloves scattered plentifully among clothing in drawers and boxes will keep away motiis as effectually as camphor. Starch should be mixed with soapy water, for thus the linen1 will have a more glossy ap- poarance and be less likely to stick to the iron- To set the colours of printed cottons, soak the article in a solution of Epsom salts. It may atterwards be safely washed with soap and water. Baked potatoes are much improved by first boiling for aLsout ten minutes with the skins on, and then draining before putting them in the oven. When washing white or coloured ribbons, add one t. Spoonful of methylated spirits to a pint of cold water; then rinse the ribbon through it, and it will look like new. Tortoiseshell combs should occasionally be ¡ well rubbed with the palm of the hand to re- t store their brightness. If they have become very dull a tiny drop of sweet oil may be used, but as a rule rubbing with the palm of the hand only will be found quite sufficient. To get rid of rats wet a rag in a strong solution of cayenne pepper, and stuff into any hole where rats or mice are supposed to be. Cover the hole with mortar or wood, and no rat or mouse will attempt to gnaw through the rag. If paraffin be spilled on a carpct, a good handful of oatmeal should at once be laid on the spot. Leave it untouched for at least a day, then remove it, and brush the carpet with a stiff broom. Mutton Scallops.—Chop up some cold mut- ton with a little onion, pepper and salt, breadcrumbs, and a piece of butter. Put into greased scallop shells, and cook in the Dutch oven before the fire. They may be flavoured with herbs, and gravy added if preferred moist. j A few drops of creosote in a saucer placed j in the larder will keep away flies, aiid"if I meat is hung near it, the ercosote will help to keep the meat sweet. Milk should not be kept near it, as both milk and butter very I quickly absorb strong odours. « I Clean the bathtubs, stationary washstands I and sinks with kerosine, as there is no better ( vanquisher of grease and dirt. Rub them j well with oil, allow it to dry, and let the hot water run until the oil has disappeared. A simple way to strengthen the voice is to bathe the chest and throat with cold water and rub with a bath-towel before going to I bed. To carry out this recipe regularly will be an effort, but it certainly has its reward. Many people add sea-salt to the water, and find it very invigorating. A black skirt may be freshened by spong- ing it with equal parts of spirits of turpen- ¡ tine and water. Then iron on the wrong side, and hang the skirt in the air to remove any smell of turpentine. Quite a shabby skirt can be renovated in this way. Cheese Biscuits.—Rub three ounces of but- ter into four ounces of flour, add five ounces of grated cheese, a little salt, if required, and a dust of cayenne. Bind together with one egg. Roll out thin and cut into biscuits, and bake on a floured tin. Every cook should clean all the flues of her stove at least once a week, if she wants it to "draw" properly. An oven will not heat properly, nor will a boiler, however much coal is burned, when the range is choked with soot. For mending broken glass there is nothing to. equal cherry gum, which is the sap that oozes out and hardens on the surface of the cherry tree. Take this soft gum, rub on the edges of the broken ware, then carefully put the part together and set away to dry for a few hours. Then the dish is ready to use. So closely do the broken edges adhere that the dish will break in a different place, if broken again. After frying nsh, bacon, or anything that is of a fatty, spluttery nature, wipe the stove over immediately with several relays of clean newspaper or soft paper. This will remove the grease before it has had time to harden and soak in. Wipe finally with a cloth I dipped in a little turpentine to remove the rtO i maining grease, rub up with a polishing brush, and the stove will look quite spick and span again. The inside of the oven should be kept scrupulously clean, and scrubbed out t once a week with strong soda water. i, Do not pour boiling water upon tea-trays, f especially Japanned and Japanese. It will nivae the varnish crack and peel off. It will also spoil the colour and cause the wood to warp. Have a piece of sponge dipped into hot water, and rub on a little soap, dry with a cloth, then li st over little flour, and dust until free irom finur wi-ih a woollen cloth. Using Up ColJ Fish or Hz bbit.-One ounce' and a half of flour, one ounce and a half of butter, half a pint of hot milk, four ounces of cold minced rabbit or fish, two eggs, pep- per, and salt. Add the hot milk to the but- ter and seasoning, and work it well into the flour. Then add the ish or rabbit, the yolk of eggs, Vrell beaten, then the whites beaten separately to a stiff froth. These must be starred in as lightly as possible, not beaten in.- ak;e; in a buttered souffles-dish for t-wenty minutes, or steam three-quarters of an hour. Serve at once. 1 .wM no vttAi *e rf txui'.iM J '■ :Ar ,;i*V7 -7 ■'

t NAVAL WAR ENDS. I Information was received at Devonport on $?U|pday evening that the naval manoeuvres had J&een brought to a close. A number of cruisers and destroyers arrived in Plymouth Sound curing the evening. & I; The manoeuvres had been brief But decisive, ;i;^nd ended in a victory for the defending fleets. I It was the object of the White Fleet in the :North Sea to form a junction with the Blue I Fleet on the west coasts of Scotland and Ire- I land, and for the Bed Fleet to prevent that -junction. Other sections of the R-sd Fleet at Berehaven were despatched to the North of Scotland., the Straits of Dover, and various ,tother points in the endeavour to prevent the -juiictisii. and as to their movements the squad- in the Western part of the English Channel ;jfciwvv nothing. A signal was made to the Loucrh bwilly fleet ,->n Sunday of the conclusion, of iiic• manoeuvres, the Blue and White Fleets having succeeded • £ n effecting a junction. This was smartly accomplished. The cruisers .of the White Fleet left Oban on Thursday night •with the object cf drawing the Red Fleet after f.hem, and thus enabling the White battleship •$ivisio:i to escave. The ruse succeeded, but -proved a costly one, for four of the six cruscrs 'ycre captured and put out of action. k Against these losses. hows'* er, the White and IBiu-e allies capiui\?d two sccuts of the Red Fie-;t. On the arrival of the Slue Fleet in ;.Swiily they saw the Latcna engaged in -wives, and she was promptly captured. Had the 4!L et arrived a few hours later the Lough would been technically mined against them.
,*0 ITS BAND & WIFE DIE TOGETHER. A double tragedy was discovered on Mon- day <at Ferry House, Gorleston, the residence the manager of the local ferries, Angus jMacDoiiald. A few days ago MacDonald was given -Notice, and when George Newell, his suc- cessor, took up his duties, he could not get possession of Ferry House. MacDonald had. Ijlut himself up in the house. On Sunday no one saw MacDonald, and on ^londay, the house still being locked, one of 1the ferrymen reared a ladder against the -Wall and looked through the bedroom win- ,R, £ low. On the bed lay MacDonald and his wife, •both dead. The police were informed, and door was broken open. The man's wrist had been cut open by a JfiiKor. On the table by the dead woman -were two glasses, one half-full of liquid, and Jn her right hand she clutched a pair of ;,45dE:sors, with which she had evidently made ;th, wound in her temples. The doctor who was called stated that the fpoman had died from poison. The man's "ibath was probably mainly due to hemorr- Jh." xe from the wound in his wrist. The police have no hesitation in describ- :yin ? the tragedy as double suicide from the -t),n.t,ents of a letter.

"When you have a motor-car," said Mr. Cliuggins, enthusiastically, "you depend on your own intelligence entirely. Now, it's altogether different when you drive a horse."

"Well," said the bridegroom-to-be, "I sup- pose you'll be sorry, Willie, when the time comes for your sister's wedding?" "Not much," replied the small brother.

"And," s.aid Llie girl, bravely, "if poverty comes, we will face it together." "Ah, dearest," he re- plied, "the mere sight of your face would scare the wolf away." And there's another engagement ring wasted. "Very slippery floor," remarked a young man, as the band played a popular waltz. "It's jolly hard to keep on your feet."
