-r- ill!; LORD FISHER'S RETIREMENT. Admiral of the Fleet Lord Fislier. of Kil-, verstone celebrated ;11:; 69th birthday on Tuesday, and relinquished his 'position as First Sea Lord of the Admiralty after seven and a half years' almost continuous service at the Admiralty, probably the most eventful period, says the ''Telegraph," since steam was introduced into the Fleet. He entered the Fleet in 1854, and he has impressed it deeply with his own person- ality there is no department which has poot felt the influence of his energy. His will always be associated with the foiimla- tion. of the torpedo and gunnery schools at Portsmouth, with the schemes of training for officers and men, with the introduction of, the water-tube- boiler mid turbine, and with the design of the Dreadnought and other vessels of new types w"l ich have now passed into the Fleet. The retiring First Lord was also, of course, responsible for shifting the balance of Briticlv naval power from Southern to Northern waters, for the estab- lishment of the present Home Fleet, and for the reorganisation of the reserve so ae to render vessels on a peace footing almost in- stantly ready for war, whereas formerly they were unmanned. Though Lord Fisher is retiring from the Board he will still remain on the active let, and he has been appointed a member of the Committee of Imperial Defence.
MAN WHO 19 ALL BONE. Alban Ku'shbrook, an inmate of the Work- house Infirmary at Swainsthorpe, Norwich, is known as "the brittle man." His muscles have been turning into bone since he was eight years of age. To-day, says the "Daily Sketch," he cannot put spectacles on unless he uses a pair of curling tongs to hoist them on to his nose. The progress of the disease—known as myositis ossificans-has made him into an expressionless mummy. A hasty movement would cause fractures. He must restrict his actions all the time. He cannot sit down. When he is not lying on his bed he is propped against a wall. Some of his teeth have been removed, in order that he may be fed. He can smoke and read. He writes with diffi- culty. With it all his bone-muscles are sensitive to the slightest touch, and he has a good appetite. The doctors can do nothing for him.
HELPLESS WARSHIP. A series of exciting experiences befell war- ehips of the Atlantic Fleet in the Channel on Sunday night. The obsolete battleship Tenedos was being towed from Sheerness to Portsmouth, and in the very heavy weather which prevailed the warship broke away from the Admiralty tugs which had her in tow. The mishap occurred close to the South Foreland, and the warship began to drive helplessly ashore as she was not under control, and had only an emer- gency crew. The tugs managed to get several ropes aboard, but these all in turn snapped, and the position of the Tenedos became despe- rate. Fortunately the vessel's danger had been observed when she first broke adrift, and a telegram was sent to Dover. The naval authorities dispatched the battleship Formidable to the assistance of the Tenedos, and in response to wireless mes- sages from the Formidable a cruiser and tugs were also sent. The old warship was ultimately got in tow, and the Formidable accompanied, her well down the Channel in case of further mishap. The cruiser returned to Dover
BLISSFUL IGNORANCE. • A gas explosion occurred at Cleethorpes on Monday afternoon in a house situate in Thurnscoe-road, and occupied by Miss Hall. Two doors were blown out as well as a sky- light, and the ceiling was extensively damaged. The window blinds and curtains caught fire. and Cleethorpes fire brigade was sum- nioned. The motor engine turned out, but itos services were not required, as the fire had been extinguished by buckets of water. A curious feature was that Miss Hall, an old maiden lady, was in the house unaware of what had happened.
J FUN AND FANCY. Visitor: "What a remarkable voice that young lady downstairs has It must have a range of at least three and a half octaves." Renter. Three aid a half octaves? It has a range of isic flats and a top attic!" "You know, my dear boy," said a sympa- thising friend to a man in trouble, "that we really gain by our trials in life." "That de- pends altogether on the kind of lawyer you get to conduct them!" replied the sufferer. "Always be careful of your amwiates," was the advice given by a good lady to the son of a fishmonger. "A boy often becomes like those with whom he associatee." "Garn!" rejoined the lad. "Why I've bin with fish all my life and I can't 1. ewim a etroke "Look here," said a tailor, as he ran up to a young man, "do you cross the street every time you see me to keep from settling your bill?" "Certainly not!" replied the debtor. "Then why do you do it?" asked the tailor. "To prevent you from asking for it!" answered the debtor. Mr. Giltman: "What have you done with my wife's pet poodle that I paid you £ 5 to ateal? Sneakthief Bill: "I returned it this morning, and got the L10 reward she offered for it." Visitor (to old salt, who had been relating his adventures): And what did you feel like when you were alone on the raft for fourteen days! Old Salt: "I got such a terrible thirst on me that I've never been able to get rid of it. I can feel it now." "Look here, you said that if I'd give you your dinner you'd mow the lawn for me said a lady of Suburbia to a tramp. "And now you refuse to do so." "I'd like to do it, ma'am, but I getter teach you a lesson," the man made answer. "Never trust th' word of a total stranger!" Savage: "I say, Russell." Russell, who is running at full speed, stops: "Well, what is it? Hurry up-puff, puff-please. I have only two minutes to-" Savage: "I merely wanted to say that you'd lose your train if you didn't hurry up." "Look here," cried the stage manager to an actor, "do you know you laughed when you were supposed to be dying?" "Cer- tainly," replied the actor. "At our salaries, why shouldn't death be greeted with joy?" Tom (an enthusiastic footballer, annoyed at seeing his side beaten): "They don't charge fkirly j h9rer" Maude (who knows nothing z, about football): "No; half-a-crown seems such a lot for a seat. Couldn't yre: stand next time? suppose, Bcidget," said Miss Woodby to the new maid, "you think it strange that one who plays the piano so perfectly as I do should practise so much," "Yis, mum," re- I plied Bridget; "shure, if 'twas me I'd give up in disgust." I' First Passenger: "Pardon me, but would you mind lending me your spectacles a moment?" Second Passenger: "WiWl ploa- • sure, sir." First Passenger: "Thanks, awfiilly. And now, as you can no longer read your newspaper, would you kindly j ass it over to me?" The Powder Manufacturer: "Fancy old The Powder Manufacturer: "Fancy old Bill, of all people, going into the gunpowder shed with a lighted candle. I should have thought that would be the last thing he'd do." The Workman: "Which, properly speakin', it were, jr." ir "Now," said the great magician, rolling up his sleeves to show that he had no concealed mechanism to deceive the eye, "I shall attempt my never failing experiment." Taking from his pocket a golden sovereign, hu said, "I shall cause this coin to disappear utterly." So saying, he lent the sovereign to a friend. White (slightly confused) "Miss Stirley, allow me to present my dear friend, Mr. Black." Miss Stirley: "But, Mr. White, this is Mr. Green." White: "Why, to be sure How stupid of me. This confounded colour-blindness of mine is always getting me into trouble." In a boarding-house one morning, in the town of T-, South Ireland, the landlady, while pouring out the tea, remarked to a boarder at the table: "What is the matter with the teapot, the tea is coming so slow?" Whereupon the boarder answered: "Oh, ma'am," he said, "it'6 too weak to travel." "Mamma," said little John, "I just made a bet." "You naughty boy, Johnny! Wtiat made you do it?" she asked. "I bet Billy Roberts my cap against two buttons that you'd give a penny to me to buy some apples with. You don't want me to lose my cap, do you?" He got tlte penny. It is well known that certain vagabonds desire nothing better, especially when the cold weather comes on, than to be arrested and locked up, in order that they may be taken care of for awhile. One of this frater- nity succeeded in getting himself arrested for vagrancy, and on the way to the lock-up he was so much overjoyed by the prospect of not having to sleep in the open-air that he be- haved somewhat boisterously. "Keep quiet!" threatened the policeman; "if you don't, I'll let you go "I was never more insulted in my life!" said a man well known for his unscrupulous methods with other people's property. "I met Tom Jackson just now, and, think of his impertinence, he carefully counted his fingers- after I had shaken hands" with him!" Fatherly Clergyman (surprising^ young parishioner in curl-papers): "Why utm't you leave your hair as it was meant to be, my child? If Nature had wanted your hair to curl, she would have curled it for you." Offended Young Lady: "When I was a little girl she did, sir, but I suppose she now thinks I am quite old enough to do it for myself." Jorkins: "I do not suppose there is a man living who could successfully forge my name to a cheque and get it cashed!" Morkins: "Is your signature such a peculiar one, then?" Jorkins: "No; but I haven't any money in the bank! ,-vi. —fciiS&aBii
HOME HINTS. < A cracked egg may be boiled perfectly wen if, before placing in boiling water, it is first j wrapped in oiled paper and tied with a string. To renew stale cake dip the cake into cold milk for a second. Rebake in a cool oven. Cake treated in this way will taste quite new, and is easier to digest. Bread can be renewed in the same way, using water in place of milk. In a house where there is a gTeat deal of work to do, the breakfast bacon is apt to be spoilt by being cut too thick and in a hurry. This may be prevented, if the cook will slice the bacon finely the day before, and it will taste equally good. When preparing suet for puddings, mince* meat, etc., get a coarse grater, which may be bought for a few pence, and rub the suet through it. This is a far quicker and easier method than chopping, and ensures no lumps being left. Scorches from ironing can be removed by applying the following mixture The juice of a bruised boiled onion mixed with a small quantity of vinegar, white soap, and fuller's earth. THe part will require to be well washed after the scorch is removed. Don't throw away your old mackintosh, it can be cut up for various useful purposm. Have a piece for babVa^cot, another for aa apron under your flamPl apron when you bathe baby. Odd pieces will make over- •leeves for same duty, and, after all that, you i etcevee for same duty, and, after all that, you ) can rlill have a bathing cap. I [ THB VALTJM OF CREAM. | Very few house-mjothen? fully realise the nutritive value of cream. It is invaluable ia the case of invalids, for it serves as nutriment i in a very valuable form. It is superior to butter, because it contains more volatile oil than butter made from it. It is frequently ordered by physicians for persons consump- tively inclined, for those with feeble diges- tions, for aged persons, and for those who suffer from impaired circulation. No other article of food gives such satisfactory re- fults. I WILL PKOTICT YOUR CUBTAXNS. To protect window curtains from rain, try this simple device. Secure a half-inch board about twelve or fourteen inches wide, and as long as ia required to fit between the side casings of the window. In the upper corners of the board have screweyes, one on each and. On each side of the window casing put a sere wove, in which tie cords about two feet long, and on the ends of the cords tie small hooks. Ordinarily these cords hang down by the side of the window and are concealed by the curtains. When ready for use, the hooks en the cord fit into the screweyes on the sides of the board, and the board is tilted back from the window. The window may then be opened as wide as the board is high. The I slanting of the board pushes baek the cur- tains! and, while allowing air to enter, pre- I vents the rain or snow from coming into the room. HAPMHISS AT HOMB. Probably nineteen-twentieths of the happi- 3acas we shall ever have in this world we shall get at home. The independence that comes to a man when his work is over, and he feels I that he has run out of the storm into the quiet harbour of home, where he can rest in peace with his family, is something very reaL It does not make much difference whether we own our house, or have one little room, we can make that little room a true home. I Against this home none of us/should ever j j transgress. We should always treat each [ other with courtesy. Courtesy is of fa.r greater value and a more royal grace than soma people nowadays seem to think. G»TTING THINGS DowiL i The art of getting things done is one that ) requires as much study and application as any other taught in schools. Hosts of people begin well enough, but break down in the middle, and, at the end of a day or a week, [have little to <show for their efforts. We know how it is in housekeeping. Some of us manage our homes by schedule time. We have days and hours set apart for definite tasks. We plan our work and we never let it f get ahead of us. Others keep house in a hap- hazard way, and are constantly iamentingf that "we have no time." As habit rules us with an iron hand, it is wise for motners so to train their children that the habit of finishing everything that is begun shall be set in character like hardened plaster of Paris in early life. Nothing can stand before dili- gence, thoroughness, and conscience in the day's work.
USEFUL RECIPES. MULLIGATAWNY Sotp.-Take a knuckle of veal. Set it on the fire with about oce and a half gallons of water, two or three turnips, a carrot, a few onions, a small spoonful of I whole white pepper, and a little salt. Blanch ( and beat a quarter of a pound of sweet I' almonds to a paste, mix them with two table-~ j spoonfuls of flour, and two small ones of J curry powder. Then mix with three gills of ( milk, add gradually to the liquor, and let it boil for half an hour. Strain before sending j to table. NICE WAY TO COOK FISH—Take a deep pie-dish, butter it well, and line thickly with J breadcrumbs or raspings. Cut the fish—pre- ferably cod or hake—into pieces, place into the dish together with some forcemeat, balls. I These must be small, or they will not be oooked. Then make some milk-and-flour sauce, adding a few drops of lemon-juice and anchovy essence to taste. Season the fish well with pepper and salt. Pour the sauce—suffi- cient to cover fisb-int-o the pie-dish, sprinkle the top well with raspings, and bake in a fairly hot oven for one to one hour and a quarter. Cold boiled fish may be used as above, but in this case it must only be baked for half an hour, and the forcemeat balls must be omitted. FRIIID CHICKBN.-To judge the age of a chicken, bend the lower part of the breast bone; if it is soft and easily bent, the bird is young; if hard, it is old. Full-grown poultry have the best flavour. Fried chicken is a de- lightful dish. Take a young bird, split it down the back, taking care not to break the breast bone. Wash, then put into a frying- pan with hot lard or oil, fry brown 011 both | sides, dust with salt and pepper, then cover 5 the pan and push to back of stove, letting it f cook slowly for thirty minutes. Serve with gravy and fried potatoes.

ORCHID COLLECTOR'S DEATH. An orchid-collecting tragedy was the c.&u&e of an action in the King's Bench Division on Monday, when Mr. Justice Bray heard the case of Walker v. The Railway Passengers' Assurance Co., in which the widow of Thomas Walker, who was killed by falling over the cliffs at Dover, sought to recover E500 on an accident policy of insurance. Mr. Walker, it appeared, was in the habit of collecting orchids, and his body was found at the bottom of the cliff. At first suicide was suggested, but this was satisfactorily disproved, and then the assurance company resisted the claim of the widow on the ground that the deceased had negligently in- curred unnecessary risk. The matter was referred to arbitration, and the arbitrator, after hearing evidence and visiting the scene of the accident, came to the conclusion that there had been such negligence as brought the assured within the provisos of the policy. His Lordship, without calling on counsel for the assurance company, gave judgment for the defendants, with costs.
COTTON-MILL BOILER EXPLOSION. Cotton operatives employed at Messrs. IIorrockses, CrewdsQn., and Co.'s Fishwick mill, and Messrs. Paley's mill at Preston, had providential escape's from death on, Monday. A boiler at the Fishwick mill- burst. The boiler-house and iron framework were shat- tered, and masses of metal were thrown in > every., direction, demolishing a stone wall on the opposite'side of the road, Pieces of iron; and red-hot cinders'' w'erfe blown into Paley's weaving shed^.every Viin" dow being demolished. Two spinning mules 9 k, were set alight, but the Preston Fire "Brigade quickly had the fire extinguished; The fireman at the Fishwick mill was scalded about the head, face and body by the steam. A dozen other people were cut and burnt, but not seriously. About 250 workpeople at Paley's and 800 workers at the Fishwick mill have been thrown out of employment, but both firms hope to resume operations within a few days.
