HINTS FOR THE
Embroidery Hoop That Saves
Wear on Fabrics.
Tlio merit of the embroidery lioop 11
lustrnteil nbove la that the two rliifrs
aro quickly ami easily separated, and
that without exerting any pressure
on the fabric between thcui. The
Inner ring Is solid, as Is usual, but
the outer one has n segment out and
Is joined by a strip, of metal bowed
outwardly so as to form a spring. By
pressure of the thumb on this spring
the outer ring is widened and remov
ed without any strain on the cloth be
tween the two. Often this cloth is of
such a tine texture that the rubbing
of It between the hoops causes tears
or at least spoils the wenve. A wo
man who has put weeks or even
months on a line piece of embroidery
will appreciate the advantage of hav
ing a pair of hoops that eliminate the
danger of having her work damaged at
the last moment.
One-half turnip, one or two parsley
roots (or leaves If not roots) and three
onions. Slice all these and boll until

THE ETHICS OF PRAYER
BY REV. DR. A. C. DIXON.
God is King, nnd it is right for a
king to hoar nnd answer the petitions
of his subjects. Prayorlessness Ig
nores, if it does not dpsplsc, the ruler
of tho universe, by rofusing to consult
or petition Him about nny need or
grievance. Tho prnyorless man has
placed himself outside tlio palo of
civilization by denying to tho llulor
the right to hear the petitions, of His
subjects. If he admits that there Is
a God, whllo at tho same timo ho de
nies that He answers prayor, ho has
brought his God down to the position
of a potty chioftain who lives .for Ills
own pleasure, without, rcgnrd for tho
welfare of His subjects. Prayorless
ness Is, therefore, a species of bar
barism. God is Judge, and.it Is right for a
Judgo to hear and answer the prayer
of a plaintiff. In Uie parablo tlio
widow has a grievance against her ad
versary, and pleads that he shall bo
punlr.hed. Though tho Judge Is un
just, his Judlclnl position compols him
to hear her plea, and her Importunity
constrains him to grant her potltlqn.
Now. If an unjust Judge Is compelled
by official position to hear the plea,
and constrained by the Importunity of
the plaintiff to grant it, how much
more will a just God respect His judt-
cial position, and answer without de
manding Importunity. "I toll you that
He will nvengo them speedily."
For men to reject God as the arbi
ter of their affairs, and wreak ven
geance upon their own adversaries, Is
an 'ndcx to the spirit of barbarism,
where there is no recognition of JudI
clal power, but every man is his own
iudre nnd jury. Prayorlessness is
ethical nnarchv. It Ignores or de
spises the "Judge of all the earth" by
refuslnc to consult or petition Him
The Parable of the Pharisee and
the Publican, which follows without
break the Parabie.pf the Unjust Judgo
and the Widow, carries with It the
idea of God's judicial position. It Is
really a parable of the Just Judgo, in
troduced by contrast with tho unjust
Judge, and we have a different type
of petitioner. The Pharisee uses the
name of God once and the assertive
pronoun "I" flvo times. He would
like to make a stream of merit flow
upward to God by the pressure of his
own egotism. The publican links the
name of God with tho dependent pro
noun "me," and puts himself In tho
stream of mercy that bows downward
from God through Jesus Christ On the
cross. To Justify the Pharisee would
be to Justify self-Inflated vanity nnd
the spirit that despises otherB. Such
a man, spreading tho peacock feathers
of his own vain assumptions, would
be an incongruous figure among thoso
who are singing, "Worthy is the Lamb
that was slain." He could not Join in
the song, because the only hymn ho
knows Is, "Worthy is myself."
This Pharisee stands at the head of
the class who to-day exalt man and
talk of the divinity of human nature,
while they reject tho Doity of Christ.
When they come before God In pray
er, it is to tell Him how great Man Is
tho discoveries ho has made, tho
books he has written, and the civiliza
tion ho hns produced.
God Is Friend, and it is right for
one friend to hear and answer the
appeal of another friend. In Luko
2.5-8 we have these words of Jesus:
"Which of you shnll have a friend,
nnd shall go unto him at midnight,
and say unto him: 'Friend, lend mo
three loaves, for a friend of mine in
his Journey is come to me, and I havo
nothing to set before him.'" This
takes us a Step beyond the parablo
of Judgment. If we have confessed
sin and received forglvenoss, we have
become friends of God. A friend on
a journey applies for bread, and tho
friend, not having It, goes to his
friend nnd roquests tho loan of three
loaves. Tho friend nt first refuses to
rise at the Inconvenient hour of mid
night, and gives as Wb reason that
his children would be disturbed.
Hero Is ft conflict of friendship with
love. The father's lovo for his chil
dren makes him seok their comfort,
whllo tho friendship of tho man for
his traveling friond causes him to bo
Importunate in his entreaty.
(iod Is Father, and It Is right for a
father to hear and answer tho cry of
As a subjoct petitioning a ruler, as
a plaintiff pleading botore a Judgo, as
a friond 'making known his need to
a friend, and ns a child crying to a
father, everyono ought to pray. Not
to pray Is, therofore, to llvo nn un
otlilcal life In our relations to God
and man, lit. that wo aro not doing
what wo ought to do. To pray In tho
name of Jesus Christ Is to be enduod
with the povor of the King of the Uni
verse, to rocelvo pardon from the
"Judgo of all tho earth," to bo sup
plied with the bounty of .tho richest
friend In the world, and to havo tho
constant caro of a loving Father.
The, unlverso is keyed to righteous
ness, and, whenovor and wborover a
human soul turns toward tho light,
the work of recovery, ot rebuilding a
life, has begun. By tollsomo ascent

fienntor Depew once related, "I went

Comparatively few cooks know how

delicious is made from sago. Put two
tablespoonfuls of sago Into a double
boiler nnd add a pint of cold water.
Boil until It thickens, stirring con
stantly to prevent lumplncss or burn

add a little sugar If sweetening Is

Landsman and 8ailor.
To tho landsman the sea must al
ways possess dangers that to tho sail
or appear only as casual phenomena
upon which to exercise his skill. Tho
praycrbook has a special petition for
the safoty of those who go down to
tho sea In ships, and every one who
ventures to leave the shore goes forth
with a consciousness of nwo nt his
own dnrlng. Yet in the Intricate com

With the present madness for speed
and Its attendant recklessness, our
streets demand constant nlertness,
If one would cross them with safety.
Speed at sea has come through larger

Tho best' method of obtaining a
coating resembling patina, according
to tho Metallarbeiter, Vienna, is to
immerse the article In a solution of
nltrato of copper and then to place It
while still wet In a chamber contain
ing an abundance of carbonic acid.
Tho fermenting room of a brandy dis
tillery Is specially adapted for this
purpose, as, besides containing car
bonic acid, It has a rather high tem
perature, which materially aids the
formation of the coating. In this case
