peaches aro not quito ripe, and need
cooking, or for some extra occasion
yon need variety. For simplo stowed
fruit I hey may bo cooked gently nnd
hut slightly (not in metal) with very
lilllo sweetening. Tboy may bo sim
ply wied and cooked whole, remov
ing skina and stones wilh epaon
whilo eating, or they may have further
previous dressing. Tho skins and
stones impart some of their flavor to
that fruit, which is not disagreeable.
Sometimes we have small and slight
ly withered fruit at our disposal. If
this be sealdod, dipped in boiling wa
ter from five to ten minutes, removing
Irom the water as soon as it will peel,
the skin can be readily slipped off.
This direction of peeling peaches by
means cl the use ot bet water is olten
misunderstood and misapplied. It can
not bo made available, lor peaches in
all conditions, but tor the abovo con
ditions it answers woll. Klip off the
skin with the hand, put the peaches
at onco under water, having just
onough to cover them; when you are
done add the juice that escapes in peel
ing and a trine or sugar, and then put
a cover nnd weight upon them to keep
them under the liquid so that they
may not turn brown by exposure to
the air. This makos a pleasant and
iuiey variety ot sauce tor the tablo
and is an excellent modo ot preparing
peaches for pies. Uso thorn up quickly.
As some will persist in cooking tbcm
or looking ahead tor wintor dinners
and suppers, here aro tome revipios for
their benefit :
The ambrosia is made In a deep,
oiled nappy, with a crust of Uraham
flour mixed at for gems. Have cold
water, sift in the flour wilh one hand
and stir with the other until a little too
stiff to scttlo flat. Spread this balfan
inch thick on tho bottom of tho nappy,
placo sliced peaches on this an inch
deep, sprinkle on sugar and a little
flour, put butler at the sides of tho dish
and add moro Iruit till ft is at least
two inches deep. Then cover it thinly
with butter, tnd hake gently for an
hour, making sure that the juice does
not run out ot the dish, nerve warm
or cold : bettor cold. For ambrosia
and peach pie. the fruit may be used
without peeling, provided the skin is
not very thick.
Crack one third ol tho kernels and
pel them in the jnr with the peaches,
which should bo pared, stoned and
sliced. Heat in a pot of boiling water
stirring occasionally until the Iruit is
well broken. Strain, and to every pint
of peach juice add the juice of a lemon.
Measure again, and to every pint of
pcacn juice add a pound ot sugar.
Heat the sugar very hot, and add
when the juice baa boiled twenty min

instantly from the fire. This is very

SPANISH LIVING AND DYING.
Tbe Spanish father is absolute king

bis sway is so mild tbat it is hardly

ROOM ON TOP.
The one great lesson taught to the
workingmen of tbe United Siato by
tbo long period oi industrial oenrcs
sion, now happily past, was that "there
it always room on lop;" tbat skilled
labor of tbe best quality is always in
demand, n nen nuiiiont ot working.
men wero idlo, When their families
wore in want, and ;whon tbo country
was filled with wanaorers seeking work
or asking for bread, there was one
class not represented in the masses of
unemployed suflorurs. Tbe few in
every branch of industry who bad
thoroughly mastered their professions
and could do tbo cost work in their
respective linos found employment,
and, although there was a reduction of
wagos, they wort rble to snap their
fingers in the face ef grim want that
was slowly profsmg nope anal lilo out
ot the lest fortunate, because less skill
ful, members ol their various crafts.
When tbe bard time began and de
mand lor all kind of work and its
product full off the first discharges ot
employe included tnoso wioso skill
and proficiency were least. This bas
always been tbo caso in the past and
must bo In ail lime lo como.tor this
condition is a result of tho Inflexible
laws regulating therelatienscl supply
The same important lessoi is en
forced by the revival of business. In
all tbo leading manufacturing indus
tries there is an emphatic and soniinu
ona demand for the best class of work
men. Knorgotio and skilled mechan
ics, qualified tor first class rating and
capahleof doing their work thoroughly
well, are in most ac.ive request ill over
the country. Especially it this tbe
case in tbe iron business, now enjoying
exceptional prosperity and so greatly in
need ot tbe very best macbiniata that
there are not enough in tbe country to

unhappy and useless people in this
country. Their services are not re

TUB FLO WERS OF THE FIELD.
All qniot, pure boarted pcoplo wbo
aro cbild-liko in their fitness for tbe
Kingdom of heaven are fond of flowers.
All refined and devout men, whose
souls have drank deep from tbo eternal
harmonies of God's kingdom fool that
tbey aro very near the Father hand
when they considor the glory with
which He clothes the flowers of the
field. Tbe poor, the lonoly, the unod
ueatod adorn tboir bomea with tbo
lovelinosa and beauty which tbo Divine
artist pours a freely as the sunshine
on tbe humblest flowers. Hard work
ing men and women, in whose hearts
la the oovenant of peace, though shut
upin closequartersand crowded streets
and noisy manufactories, bang a little
vine or shrub In the window, und they
watch ita progress, its opening blos
soms, aa it tbey taw in Iho delicate
tint the lingering rayeot tbe Paradiso
once lost, and the tiro gleams of a
brighter I'aradiso to be regained. De
vout, spiritual, religioua minds tbat
caro nothing about tbe flaunting colors
of fashion, or the olaborulo decorations
of art delight in contemplating tbe
quiet and simple beauty of flowers.
The shrinking and sensitive student
finds nothing in all the riches und
splendors ot education to cheer bit
heart to much aa one view of the wild
landscape in the opening Spring, when
trees wavo their green boughs, and
flowers swing their censers of perfume
in tho wind, and the humble grass
clothing the fields in moro seemly robes
than kings ever woro.
tt hen the Christian traveler in the
Holy Land would bring borne the
most fitting memorial of tbo sacred
scenes which bo bas visited, be plucks
a roso on the plain ol Sharon, bo gath
ers a bunch ot thorn from tho sons
field in aight ot tbe Sea of Uallileo;
wilh tearful eyes and a trembling hand
be takoa a lily from the mount ol Beati
tudes ; bo breaks a twig of terrebintb
from the grove of Tabor ; be turns
aside to select a witbored fig leaf aa be
treada the sacred pathway from Be
thany to Jerusalem ; he bows bis bead
as it pressed with a crushing burden,
and hi mind it stirred with thoughts
too deep lor bearing he takes an olive
leaf from tbo garden of Getbsomane.
And when in afler year bit eye lulls
upon the leaves and flower which be
gathered with his own hands beside
tbe pathe w here the feet of J esus trod,
he feel tbat no work of art could so
effectually and lovingly draw him lo
the scene where Jesus sunored ana mo
throno wboro Jesus reigns.
God bas strewn over tbo earth, ana
He bas given Ihem infinite variety in
form and hue, that every tasto may be
gratified, and tbat none may be wearied
w th tho study or their noaiiiy. jie
thus shows us bow much He Himself
delights in the perfection of beauty,
and how much instrnction, refinement
and happiness may be derived from
contemplation ot 111 marvelous woras.
Millions ot nowers are inaoea twrn to

waste their sweetness on the desert
air. God sees tbem and delights in
their beauty. Thoy offer up incenso of
silent worship to mm thai made tbem.
The Lord ever rejoices in tbo work
which He bas clolhod wilh such per
fection ot beauty. His glory is declared
not only by the heavens and all tbe
host tberoot, but by the primrose
ttaring in the springing grata, by mow
plants that bloom on the edge of eter
nal ice, nnd by the delicate most that
lives whero tbe footol man nevor trod.
It becomes us to consider tbo lily and
the humblest flower that grow with
a feeling of reverence and of worship,
for it is lUcll a thought, a plan ot God.
Its beauty i an expression ot iho in
finite mind, just us truly as tbo most
sacred precept in the book of Divine
revelation. The two hundred thous
and apeciea of flowers that adorn the
earth and preserve tbeir individual
character from century to century,
worn all designed and shaped and col
ored with intinito variety and beauty
by the Divino artist, who laid the
foundation of the earth and unrolled
tho firmament of start wilh Uia own
hand. Ho delight in tbe beauty of tbe
microscope mass that climbs tho moun
tain aide eighteen tbosand loot above
the level of the tea, or travel north-1
ard to tbe circle ot perpetual ice, not
loss than tbe most brilliant flowers that
bluxe in groves of palm of the tropic.
It we wonld sbow ourselves to be God s
children, we must learn to delight in
tbe pure, simple, quiet beauty with

bis earthly children.
Uur Lord tells us Dial the most mag.
nificontof all the kings of Israel could
not come forth in such gorgooni array
as tbalwbicb God clothes the humblest
flower of the field. And Uu will bring
thit more than kingly glory into tbo
bouse of any ono wbo will plant a seed
in a handful of earth, and sot it in the
window for the light to look upon.
There is nothing in the painting of tbe
great masters, nothing in statuary.
nothing in the most costly and elabo
rate decorations of architecture to bo
compared with the timplo graco, tho
delicate tints, the period barmony nl
flowers which the poorest can cultivate
in the bumbeat home. Let not your
heart be led away, then, with longings
for artificial splendors wbicb ricbos
only can bring. Yon can look back

ARRIVALS AT THE ZOO.

and monkeys and afemale tapir. 1 be
boa constrictors ranged in sixo from
seven to twelvo feot, and with tbo six
lurgeones already in the garden makes,
it is said, tbe largest und finest colleo
tion in this country. Unfortunately,

thoy aro pretty well crowded. Their
food consists of rats, rabbits, guinea
pigs, chickens, Xc. These are plaoed
in the cago alive, wbon, if the snakes
are feeding, tbey will be seized at
onco, killed by construction, and awul
lowed whole. It it calculated by the
keeper, Mr. bbeppard, tbat it will re
quire 27,000 rau a year to food tbem.
At present aomo ol thorn are abedding

times a year. Tho orang-outang is a
raro specimen, between threo and four
years old. She Is the first orang outang
ever owned by the society, and is val
ued on account of tbo scarcity of ibo
species, as tbey are rapidly becoming
extinct. Mr. liolling, the keeper, who

THE DIGESTIBILITY OF
While evory body ia enjoying or pre
paring to enjoy oysters roust, pan
ned, broiled and served on toast, fricas
seed, oscallnped, stowed with celery,
the convenient common stew, or even
the not easily digestive fry the Hard,
ford Times has thoso good words to
say for the common clam : "Tb noli,
round, hard shell clam is by no moans
drivon out of tho market, or away
from tho tablo, by that big, bloated
member ol the family, the oyster.
Claim which are good in Summer are
ovon bottor through tbo Full a id
Wintor. Thorc is a common prejudice
against clams that thoy are indigesti
ble. If they aro ao, it is because tboy
aro improporly cooked ; thoy are
stowed whole into tough lcalbur, the
cook lancving she must servo soles, or
otbor marine monstrosilioa, instead of
clsma. Or tbey are baked to cindor,
as at aome ol tbe popular clam bakes,
wbere thoy aro only digested by such
mechanical means as by pouring into
the stomach whole pint of strictly
rrime Bourbon benzine, as tho ostrich
wanuws rauroau spikes and bits of
juuk bottles to assist in culling up lis
tough lood. Glams should never ne
stowed ; but cut up finely and gently
simmorod. Hut the royal way of serv
ing the clam is lo roast it on bar or a
gridiron ovor a bright grate fire tbe
quicker the better and the minute it
'sizzle,' open it, pan it and let it sim
mer a little in its own saved juice and
a bit of buttor. Tbe clam thus cooked
is a grateful creature that will repay
all the attention shown it. And so
served, far from being indigestible, it
is as tender as the swan song in 'Lo

THE ORIGIN OF THE TERM
Tho term Gotham, often applied In
mild derision to New York, was first em
ployed, w believe, a n nickname to
ihat city by Washington Irving.
Tbo name ia not an invention, an is of
ten thought ; it ia an actual parish of
Nottingham, England, whose inhabi
tants wero formerly so proverbially
ruBlio and stupid tbat they gained tbe
ironical title of the Wise Men of Go

of Magna Cbarta memory, intended
once upon a timo to go though th
parish tor the purpose ol buying a cas
tle and ground. Tbe Golhamitos,
knowing tbat tbe royal visit would
entail considerable expense on them,
pretended, when tbe monarch' me,
aongera appeared, to be occupied with
some silly, ridiculou pursuit, much to
tb disgust of tbe regal emissaries.
These reported to John what tbey had
seen, and be declared that be would
