? 'X HOUSEKEEPING. Satw tft PiM. In all households there is more or less "waste, and how much or little this may be depends wholly upon the housewife. If she is a good manager very little will go to waste in her house, for such a woman usually contrives to use about everything that can be used, and what isn't used is of very little account. In buying eatables she is not particular that she should get to the ounce what she knows is plenty for the meal. If there are a few ounces over she does not care, for she reasons that they can be used in some other way, and they always are. It is the same when she pur chases dress goods. She never buys ex actly to the yard, but always a little more, so if there should be a mistake made in the cutting or fitting, she will have enough ma 'terial to remedy it, and if no mistake occurs, what she has left after the dress is made she uses either to trim another gar ment or make it into something for the children. "When she buys a carpet she always gets...

'WMW Vn i . 503 NEWS NOTES. In Jersey City a party of Germans were shooting at a mark in a cellar. One of the , bullets went through a window and hit tin Irish lad named Murphy, causing a, danger ous wound. Siegfried SchnMder, who saw the boy f all, rushed to his assistance, and was at once taken by a mob of Irishmen, who', supposing him to be the reckless shoot er, threw a rope around his neck and were about to hang him when the police rescued him. Schneider had not been with the marksmen, and his thrilling adventure fairly illustrates the manner in which mobs deal out justice. Probably as many innocent per sons as guilty ones are lynched. U.
