In order to ascertain what it ox

their timidity or modesty aa the cast

the success uf the show by exhibiting
their product.
"Ptop|t seem to be somewhat mar

they .iiiinot possibly know until after

Ae an effort to supply cheap money
for tbe farmer through state assistance, tbe Agricultural Bank of Bavaria ii worthy close study, by thoae
wbo interest liiemaidvea III the progreu of agricultural lottlemeut in tho
Canadian weit.
lu 1806 the government of Bavaria
adopted thc policy of promoting a eo-
operative Auociation, to organize a
mortgage bank. The governmeut undertook lo grant a subsidy for tbe
bank for tho Ont yean and to supply
the initial capital repayable at a later
date. The bank waa mude aubject
to Ihe in.■pel Hun of a Itoyal Commie
... i.m.. 1. iu order to confer ou the bonds
11 in.l by it, the iccurity aud guarantee! required for trustee investment!.
The llavariau Couucil of Agriculture
was entruited with tbo formation of
tho corporation and accordingly es
tabliihed the Agricultural,' Bauk of
Havana which began buiineu on Nov-
ember ITtb, 1806.
Thii institution ii, tbcu, a credit
bank, orgauiied on tbe cooperative
plan and enjoying tbe moral and the
iiiiiiiu ml luppurt of the State.
Under iti bylaws, the bauk can
grant loaus ouly lo iti members. Tboie
who are eligible for memberihip are
as followi: All ownen of foreit or
agricultural landi in Bavaria, ill tbe
enjoyment of political right* in tbe
country! ownen of homeileidi, rural
communal; eharitible founditioni,
corporuie bodiei ami regiitered coop
eral ive aiioeiationi of Bavaria, re
presenting agriculluril intereiti; pri
vale individual! wbo may* wiih to
mpport  the auociation.
The Agricultural Hank grauli three
kinds of hums: I Loans repayable by
annual instalments, guaranteed by a
mortgage on agricultural or forcat
lands; 8— Loans aa above, bul not guar
uuii .ui by mortgage (reserved for rural commune*); il—Loam of 111 etcep
tional kind which may be repaid in
olher than aeveral annual instalments
aud which are guaranteed by inert
The fundi of Ihe bauk are procured
from Ihree aourcei, namely, the uie
of members' ilnrei, the iuue of moil
guge bunds and subsidies and loans
(limited by the idle. At the dite of
iuue, each member must pay for one
share of i'lii and no member can poi
seas more than -Wl iharei. Liability ia

No mortgage loan must exceed 60
per ceut. of the value of the pioperty
mortgaged. Estates are vilued for
loaning purpoiei on the basis of tbe
net income which lbe estate Could
yield, if well miuiged, for Ihe porpolea
for wlneli il ii adipted.
Thoae who are acquainted with tbe
working of thii agricultural bank de
dare  that although  itt inlerett rite

Bracey was so splendidly mounted,
ao grandly clothed, hie jewels—a fe'.v
days before the property of tbe uo-
bility—so fine, nnd Ms por tain tn well
linei) that the farmer's daughter completely lost her head. The highwayman
wanted her because she huil a pretty
face, a ilelighlful figure ami a ilushiug
spirit. He wus a shrewd criminal, smi
must have seen at flrst glance tbe hobl
tbat a life of adventure would have
ovor the girl,
Hhe never disappointed bim. Hhe,
took to the ruud like a duck to water,
just as the briskest yuung fellow would,
First of ull, she assisted hur highway
mau to rob her owu fullier of a con
i,l, iui,l, sum of money ami then ran
ulf with l|cr bold lover, The pair proved
very        Auahcially.    Joau did
nul utlcinpl tu make herself like a man.
Hhe wcnl quite lu the ulher estrone,
It, was an experience never lo be for
gotten for a stage-roach full of pass
eugurs lo be held up by a pair like
this: The husband's uislols would nit'fi
ace the trembling travelers, while his
wife's soft in,uuiu would gu thruugh
Iheir pockets nimbly and Iter bright
eyes wuuld dame by Ihe lantern's light
Hume men iiiighl huve had courage
uud resource enuugh to resist Bracey's
lushing orders, but they were msde
helpless by his charming companion,
whu cul such u captivating ligure ou her
steed and whu knew so well huw lu en-
tract the lusl shilling and the lasl
jewel frum Iheir hiding places.
Joan's career, however,  was  short.
What she and her husband had taken
uu (lie i i uinuiinled lu a cutisidcrable
sum uf muney. The hue and cry was
after Ihem mure than ouce, bul they
continued iu lhe active practice uf their
trade. One day, however, .lean mel her
fate, tihe rubbed a person uf quality
a jusl ice uf die King's court- wliu was
relentless iu having her sought uut.
Hhe had bad furl une ami was blent i
it,I Knglisli law was sharp, sliurl,
quick and merciless then. The hempen
rope wus always ready fur Ihc guilty,
.loan Bracey was tried, convicted and
! went lo lhe gallows before she was
twenty one. Her eieeutiou was une of
the great events uf the day, for in her
career was the strangest mingling of
youth, love, crime and swift puuiab
ineiil. Her husband was bunged less
1 than a yeur later.
Woman  Cursed  Her  Executioner.
There is another highway  bride in
the uniiuls uf i,,iu,,it,i   felunies.    Hhe
I wus not a darrllng beauty.   Her name
was Anne ll„linn,I, and she ulwuys rude
at her husband's side un tlieir midnight

ding, drab colored  une couriered  with
Iuuu Uru,, . -   |,u, it shows uii cijually
iLli'WTcsliug *j,liuse uf life in die latter
part of the seventeenth century.
The story of Anne's curly life is nut
recorded. Hhe was born in a slum uf
London and was lirst heard of as a bar
maid in a very ordinary public huuse
she was uut very youug then. She must
have been a determined character, fur
she married an elderly comb uluker whu
had taken her fumy. It was su uu
successful u union lliul her husband al
last, in self defense, had tu turn her
uut uf doors. At dial particular mu

of London Town never told each other

to say of sturdy Anne llullun■!.
Aunc grew to bo a familiar Hguru at
Newgate prison. Her wedded life lusl
,*! about two years. Tben Wilson was
hanged for his many Crimea. But
Anne Holland still eontinueod robbing
on the hiiili roads. Bhe carried off much
property of value end was regarded
generally as a female demon, fur sho
Iliuiiglit nothing of shooting down those
who refused hor in Ihe dead of night.
Hhe wore meu's clothes easily and soon
bad furgottuu tho feel of petticoats. I|ci
experience and audacity helped her out
uf muny a tight place, aud more thuu
oue of her during exploits liave been
refilled to her mure famous eumpeli
"Wu havu no furlher sccount uf
her," says her biugrapher, "until 17(1,1,
when sho was executed at Tyburn.
Instead of imploring mercy fur Ihc pur
dun uf hur olfeuce, she execrated the
luu,I heart of her judge, the rigor of
lis luws, ami abused Ihu excculinner,
fnrgelling lu repent uf the guilt which
brought her to this disgraceful end,
ami wuuld, unrepeutcd of, deliver ber
suul into the far less merciful hands uf
ii mil her hereafter."
Tba Wife Wbo Trained Her Husband.
There, tuu, is Muil Junes, whu is one
uf the must curious figures in those
dusty pages uf days gone by. Moll
Junes docs not ligure so much iu the
annuls uf Ihc great as iu thuse of the
picturesque. .She was married when
she adopted the road as a profession
No une ever taught her huw tu becume
u highwayman. Hhe studied it all uul

perfected herself iu the ert uf rubbing
travelers, she disclosed ber doings li
her husband. Hhe trained him ulsu

The botcher proved au apt schular,
though. He became a good, cupulde

Ilis wife, however, wearied of the eu
forced periods uf inaction which were
necessary nuw and theu, uwing lo Ihe
activity of thc constables and to uther
reasons. If sbe bad stuck stedfusll)
lu Ihe ruad her career migbt have been
lunger uml less dramatic iu its conclusion. A London bred girl, she saw too
many opportunities uf petty pilfering
near at baud when there was nu chance
uf wild -rules un muuuless nights.
One such rubbery that she attempted
is tuld of in a collection ot anecdotes
nl,nni her. Mi.- went out one nigbt,

They had decided that it would lie un
safe tu saddle their hurses and steal uut
uf I,iiii'lun fur a raid. Hhe chafed al
the inaction and decided Ibal lliere
must be thievish pussibililies quite neal
In,me Hhe found uue quickly. The
dour uf a bsndaouie house stuud opeu-
it looked like uu admirable opportunity.
"Hhe went upstairs, entered a bed
chamber, and did herself under the
bed," says the aucicut chronicler of
her crimes. "In abuut au huur a
couple of 'footmen brought in candles,
while the maid with great alacrity laid

with two or tbree dishes, aud live or
six people sat down to supper, besides

There was a dug in the ruum which

"To silence Iheir demur, and lu pre

which wounded Moll iu the face, The

gave Moll another scar. Huppcr al lasl
