-iWith an Impatient exclamation Jock
Gear fired the tightly crumpled letter
at the cat.and missed lt by several
Inches. Tbe cat sunning herself In iho
window rose leisurely, etit'lched her-
lelt and Jumped oil' Unit ledge Into mi-
other, out of the range of lire. Then
Gear picked up the coiiiiniiiileiitlon nnd,
smoothing out the crumpled slicol, raid
again the letter Unit hud cuiiacil him so
much anger.  Itrond:
Car Sir—Tour last statement of-accounts Is most iinsntlafnetory. T finrl thnt

eponde.ee than he did about the comas-lilies business. Then he raised hll
voice, and In response a trim little typewriter entered, a notebook In hand.
Our pulled, out the elide of his, roll
top deeffor her use, und, after lighting
aa extra itrong cigar, always a erne
elgn of-trouble about the office, he con.
I to dictate:

"Thnt will bull," he snld us the girl
finished tbe paragraph and looked up,
"nml you needn't put 'Yours respect-
fully' after It at thnt. You might tell
Mr. Saunders that If nny morn sliip-
meots come ln from M. 0. t'illiinii lo
refuse to receipt for thorn."
Thit ended tho Fltliliiti incident, so
tar ai Gear wue concerned, hut Siiittt-
e.r> bad the pleasure of turning buck
a conilgumcnt of produce two weeks
later, and tbe Incident was forgotten
until one uftcrnoon uliout u year after-
ward, when Gear, whose sister hnd
married a Uoseilule iiimi, wns sluing
on the porch or her tiny cottage en-
Joying bl. vocation.
"Ted," laid his sister (his inlilillo
name, ahd hie .later', favorite, una
Theodore), "I want to Introduce you
te' Bell. Flthlan, . dear child and ouo
et my mott Intimate friends."
B. took th. tiny hand Into his dually grssp, and even while the red blood
aurged to hll face he realized that In
Ml. Flthlan he hnd found his fate.
From tbat hour Jack's vacation wns
absorbed by Miss Flthlnn, upon whom
be danced conitnnt attendance. In
the morning ihe drove bin. on eri'iimls
for hia (later. In tbe afternoon there
wire longer drives along Blinded coiui-
try lanes, aud In the evening there
wai boating or a straw ride or hup to
bring the pair together.
They were out on the lake one even-
teg, Jack forcing the boat through ihe
'water with lazy strokes, while the
moon cist an Intoxicating llliiiiiliuillon
over th. water. They rowed liking
clow to th. bank, and presently .luck
forced lb. boat', nose against the
beach, Belle bad a guitar with her,
and for a time he leaned lazily against
tb. edge of the .eat while she crooned
l*et» precle love songs.
finally ihe laid the Instrument aside.
. "I'm tired of singing," she snld. "Let's
talk a little while."
"Well. If you're bound to shut the
concert off," be snld, "there's n tines-
Hon I would like to usk you. It's been
fanning through my head for several
daya, aud l'v. a sort of lazy curiosity
about It."
"What la lit" ah. naked.
"1 w.nt to know It there 1. .ny per
sen of th. name of M. U. Flthlaa
aieaad here!"        	
"Yes," she answered quickly. "Why
do you ask?"
"Why, you see," he went on blindly,
"there wns u chap down this way
about a year ago that sent me a rather
misty letter about some garden stuff I
sold for him. He got tee Idea that I
wns trying to swindle him because my
. sltitoiucnt of account did not quote the
print's that he fou.id In some fool lour-
l.-i't report. I came pretty close to
coming down here and getting Into a
row with him, hut 1 was busy Just
then nnd couldn't spare the time."
She looked at him, astonished. "I
thought John T. Gear was the name
of the commission merchant," she said,
"Your sister calls yon Ted- Obi" as If
light had suddenly dawned.
"That's my middle name," he answered—"John Theodore Gear. But
M. G. Isu't any relative of yours, I
lio could see her face flush even In
Iii.i shadow.
"I am JI. G. Flthlnn," she said coldly. "My mother was rather romuutlc.
and she gnvemc the name ot lllralicll.
Gwendolyn Fitlilnu. When my father died and I had to conduct our
farm until my brother came back, I
realized the absurdity of uelng such a
inline In business communications and
employed only my Initials, at tbe same
time endeavoring to cultivate a maa'a
baud. And now, Ur. Gear, if you wlll
kindly row me back to tbe landing I
think It would ho best."
"I'lense don't," be said Impulsively,
holding out -his hand. "Glv. m. a
chance to explain."
"I believe," she returned Icily, "that
the expln nation was to be made in pantomime. Perhaps It would be better
to uiulto haste lest you be tempted to
'.knock my hend off.'"
For u moment .luck was stunned by
the unexpectedness of the revelation,
but he was a mail ot action and quickly
"See here, Belle," he said, taking bl.
place at her side, "I've been all kind,
of a fool, and I admit It, but It wa. .a.
aggravation to me and came during an
insufferably hot spoil, wben my nerve.
nud my temper were alike on edge.
I've grown to core a great deal for you,
dear, since I came down here. And you
care a little for me? Don't let a business dispute come between us .ud our
happiness. Tbe only way to get th.
liest of a commission dealer ls to marry him. Combine business aud love,
and let me marry you now. Then you
can come back to Chicago with me
and see that your brother's account,
nre properly kept Won't you aay
'Yes,' dear?" And he looked tenderly
Into the face turned to bis.
She did not say "Yes," but there
came a soft sound that was neither
the ripple of the water againit th. boat
nor yet the murmur of blgb grille, on
the beach, and Gear seemed laUstJed
with that.

Whin buying an ax handle always
■elect one that is mado entirely
from the sap wood or tho heart
wood, hut never one that is made
partly ol each, for it will
sfeiit along the line of union.
Handles made Irom sap wood ure
more elastic and better for chopping _nd a man will not tiro or
get sore .so quickly wheu using
one. I. prefer, those made from tlm
heart wood for eplitting, ulllioiurji
they are not so durable, soys u
writer In Orange Judd Farmnr. The
proper length and curve of tho handle depends upon tho habit unit
method pf.chopping of the user. With
a- long handle a man will strike a
much harder blow, but with a short |
handle he will strike oftcner, so
there Is practically no difference in
tile work accomplished.
The curve, too, depends upon tho ;
liable of the user. A curved htin- '
die has no advantage over the one
that is perfectly straight. Mcst
people prefer the curved, tjot-ttii.se
they are accustomed to Its use.
A, a rule the straight hnndlo is
more ondurable. The size of the
handle depends upon the muscular development of the user. ff
lt. is too email ft will cramp the
fingers, and If too large it will
lam. the hands and wrists.
If one will examine the end of
a piece of wood he will see that it
is made of layers, each layer representing the growth of olio year.
Wood splits much more easily
along thee, lines than across them,
hence when selecting an ax handle,
always choose one In which tho
layere are parallel with the Hue of
force, as shown In Fig. 1. 11 they
are at right angles, as in Fig. 2, a
few days' use will cause the bundle
to split along the dotted lines
shown. The difference in quality
in this respect is so marked thnt

In hanging an ax considerable attention ihould be paid to the
kind of work which is to be done.
For .mail wood hang au
ax pointing In, as shown in Fig.
8. For very large trees hung It
aquftrely across, or at right
angle, to the handle, and for splitting, eepeciftlly block wood, hung
it out According to Fig. 5. This
give, one a chance to strike a
heavy blow, squarely across trie
block, using th. whole bit ot
the ax, and without making a tiresome . bend of the back with eve.y
blow. The relative position of
the blade and handle may be changed, by inserting a email wedge In
the eye of the ax, either above or
below the handle as occasion may

M.al nation, for r.tt.nlns steers.
A light ration of menl was found
to givo the most profitable results in
fattia'ng steers tn a series of experiments extending over several years
at tho O.A.O. The steers were started on about one-third pound of corn
meal per day per 100 pounds of live
weight, .and this quantity was increased a. deemed advisable to slightly ovor one-half pound per dny. Tho
average dally gain was liiiu pounds
at i cost of 6.5Rc per pound. The
steers, which were fed on a medium
ration of two-thirds pound per day
per 100 pounds of live weight, niiulo
a gain of 1.70 pounds at a cost of
6.60c per pound of gain. Another
lot foil at the rate of one pound of
meal per day per 100 [annuls live
weight, gained 1.75 pounds dully ut
a cost of 7.11fic pot- pound of gain.
The meal was rallied ul SHI per ton,
the bay $0 and the roots $11.
