The Year of Ninety-Two.
When looking over history's page .
Great things appear to view,
But greater things will be recorded
In the year ol ninety-two.
The country train now has started,
With few stops it will go through;
It will land in Washington 'i'iry
, In the year of ninety-twe.
The conductor is a farmer
And knows tho work to do;
'He -will gttidc them safely to the city

Are dressed in gruyaud blue,
And they'll tread the streets ot the capitol
In the year of uinety-two.

We liave now arrived at an ae in

By means of this influence, persis
ted in fromjlecade. to devade, have tlij
true love and appreciation of rowd
music leen instilled into the mind and
soul of the German people. By this
influence can we quickly draw our
selves out of-the mire of promiscuous
appreciation and out of the quicksands
of perverted t;iste.
Where. can we witness a prettier an
imated picture than to look in upon a
family gathered after the labors of th
day to render some of the easier cham

So much for the picture. Now let j
us proeeedfoa method of practice in '
order to obtain this result.
The first move in the program is the
encouragement of the earnest study of
stringed instruments. We have had
the piano banged from early morn to
evening late, and it is high time that
the violjn family had a fair show in
the race for artistic development.
It is a bright and encouraging sig-
nificance that the fair sex ;.re making
rapid strides into tin; orche.-tr.il arena,
ami they bid fair to hold their own.
Many of the timid limit their attention
to the strings, while some of the more
courageous' are taking up the reed and
br.tss. The over nice fear that thvir
facial expression may become disar-
ranged, but I have yet to see a face
that has been dishgured or made less
kissable by the practice of wind instru
ments. The royalty of Europe are
'iiking up orchestral instruments. The
Countess of Radnor has an orchestra
of hwdies, many of whom have the
title of ''honorable1' lief ore their names.
A few weeks ago, in Detroit, a br.iss
baud f ladies headed a company, and
it was reported to me that thev exe-
cuted their work in finished style. Virginia led in the movement, and es

orchestral' instruments is moderate,
and the benefits to be derived from a
better status, physical, mental and
moral, health and happiness, yield an
enormous interest. 111 countrv towns
meetings could be held from houe to
to house, or a moderate sized halt fitted
for occupation. Small groups of the
musically inclined can begin with
Haydn's duos, trios, and then march
on by degrees to a rendition of works
of other masters, quartets, quintets,
octets, &c, a class of works that rarely
receive a hearing outside of our larger
cities. Familiarize our young -folks
with works of this class and we will
quickly arrive at a high state of musi
cal civilization, when a Thomas, Seidl
or Nikisch will always play to over
I wish to reiterate that here is a rich
field for our young ladies to explore
and develop. Indeed ladies' orchestras,

How to Sharpen a .Screwdriver.
The screwdriver is found not only in
the 'tool clrest of every mechanic, but in
most 'houses and in not a few offices. U
ranks with the hanimer,the saw and axe
in general utility, and yet - very few
ersons know anything about how' it
should be sharpened so as to do its
work -most-efficiently that is, with
the least expenditure of power and the
least injury to the heads of screws.
In driving a screw into the wood the
force . used to press the screwdriver
against the head iof the screw tends to
aid the latter in penetrating the weotl,
but wlif'ii we attempt to extract a screw
every pound of pressure that we apply
tends to render it nmrc difficult to get
the screw out It therefore becomes
very important that "the. screwdriver
should le o formed that it may be kept
in the nick of the screw by the exertion
of Uie very least degree of force, for if
it has any tendency to slip -out we can
keep it in place only by applying pres
sure, in which case we can - run great
ry of injuring the nick and rendering
it impossible to draw the screw.
If we examine a screwdriver in the
condition in which it is ordinarily found
we shall find that it presents a section
in which I lie sides of the wedge in which
all screwdrivers terminate, are curved
with convex sides outward.
Now, the effect of thus curving the
sides of this wedge is to render it great
Moi cover; when we turn the screw
driver, the tendency to slip out of the
nick is just in proportion to theobtuse-
n ess or bluntness of the wed-
i i p . i p .i
inereiore, i nis lorui is Uie very worst
that can be chosen. In t lie hands of
most good-workmen, therefore, we find
that'the screwdriver ends in a wedge,
ot which t lie sides are perfectly straight.
(This is a very good form, but it is
not equal lo a form in which the sides
of the wedge are curves-, but with the
concave sides turned outward. In this
way we lessen the obtuseia-ss of the
; wedge at the extreme point, and produce
a tujusciew which nr-.y be kept in the
nick by the least possible pressure end-
wise. To grind a st rewdriver into this
form it is necessary t, ue a very small
grindstone, and many of the artilicial
stones found in market answer admira
lty. Most mechanics would (iud it to
o ki ep one of t he:-e
small grindstones for the purpose, and
it eouid be run m the lathe with

Thc Husbands Got "Dinner.
"There is absolutely no need of hav
ing a bal cook," sajd the master of tho
house, somewhat dictatorial !y, with a
good Matured albeit lofty pity for fem
inine incompetence. He and his friend
had Jieeii listening with languid inter
est to a conversation between their re
spective wive on the ever fertile theme
of servants. "Now, I do not pretend
to know anything," he went on, "but
I am sure I could train any Biddy, and
I venture t j say that Tom here and I
could serve up a perfectly well cooked,
palatable dinner, with no other aid
than our common sense and general
knowledge of cooking, which was ob
tained during our camping out expedi
tions. I think you "women- make al

"it ought to be easy enojigh to teach a
woman to be a good cook." His wife
turned upon him with a stare of
amazement. "Et tu Brute!' she ex
claimed, laughing. uBut I tell you
what it is, Amy," she said suddenly to
her friend, "let us challenge these men
tp produce the dinner they seem to
think is such an easy matter to concoct,
ami jnove their assertions."
Tne husbands, nothing loth, con
sented to the trial, and it was finally
agreed that the ixt evening's dinner
should be the proof of the argument.
Cook was made happy by a couple of
theatre tickets and a holiday, and the
Cvo men took possession of the kitchen
early in the afternoon; and at the re
gular hour the undeniably excellent
little repast was served.
Neither of the cooks, however, made
his appearance, so the ladies sat down
together to discuss the following menu:
A delicious, clear, clam soup; smelt
done, done to a turn with a sauce tar
tare; chicken "disosse," with a cream
sauce, wi'h very young green peas and
new potatoes; and some delightful lit
tle birds blanketed with thin slices of
pork, accompanied ' by a salid with
mayonnaise dressing (the sauce tartare,
by the way, for the tish, was the same
d re -sing, with capers and cut up cu
cumber pickles). " There is 110 desert,

young wives, finding that their hus
bands did not put in an appearance,
descended to tne lower regions in
search of them. There they found the
conqaerers each extended on a couple
of kitchen chairs, perfectly limp and
too utterly "played out" even to boast
of their victory. "I never had a back
ache before in my life," groaned on'e,
"and how it does hurt!" "Our tri

Suppose our government should loan,

not all the money of our nation be
furnished by the govenmiont alone
and under its control, as wefl as the

could it not be done as honestly and
md as safely. Would not the farmers
now crushed down with mortgages at
ngh rates of interest all over the
country, shake off their shackles and
tii nil upas men freed from the iwor.-t
form of slavery ?
Would not the interest at one per
cent, fully compensate the government
or each and every expense incurred in
such loans for the welfare of the
whole people instead of loaning out
he money to bankers as a class, for
hem to le-loan to t lie people to their
own private advantage and gain? As

lad all of these advantages, is it no!
ight that each individual be treated
