KITCHEN WRINKLES. Powder the insides of new gioves to make them easier to slip on, anil also, in the case of colored kid cnes, to prevent the dye from staining the hands. The cooler eggs are the quicker they will froth when whipped, so they should be beaten in a cool place. A pinch of salt always cools and fresh ens them. ' , Vegetable and fruit stains on the fingers can be removed by dipping the fingers in very strong tea for a few minutes and then' washing them in clear, warm water. If bright saucepans and kettleB have to be used over a smoky fire, Binearing a little grease over the bright part will prevent the smoke from blackening the metal. If wash ed after use In hot water, the pan will be as bright as ever.

As the oldor traps lose their vitality fresh shoots appear and new traps are de veloped. The Venus fly-trap is regarded as cue of the greatest wonders of the plant world, for it seems to exercise a discrimination of taste that is more than numan. It is provided with three delicate hair-triggers, and it exudes a sort of honey-dew that attracts the flies. Woe to the fly, however, that touches one of the triggers, for, quick as a flash, the two heavy leaves of the; trap close upon the victim and crush it, much the same as an ordinary steel trap acts.

A large number of district residents took advantage of tho perfect night and drove in, with tho result that the hall was packed, and quite a number had to bo satisfied with looking on from outside.

Those of us who have not been pre sented at Court know all about it, in a few cases, from our friends, but for the most part from newspapers and weekly periodicals. Sheila Danver's debut differed from that of other girls in two respects. In the first place, the extreme simplicity of her dress—which, notwithstanding the Court train and feathers, was made precisely after the Duchess of Tewkesbury's direction—was remark able, and, in the second, she wore the most magnificent pearls of any debu tante and looked, neverthelss, almost like a child. The whole affair went ofE with the usual eclat, or perhaps one may say, waut of eclat. The Duchess of Tewjtesbury, who was a particular friend of Her Majesty's, surveyed Sheila as she entered lier presence, ana, without a moment's hesitation, removed the broo...
