As the door swung open sll greeted
the young man. Loosening his snow-
shoes, he flung them on the step and
came ln, a fox tail dangling from his
fur cap.
He shook hands with Polly and her
mother and lifted Paul to the ceiling.
"Hello, young man!" said be. "If one
is four, how many are two?"
"If you're speaking of new boots,"
■aid Uie widow, "one ia at least fifteen."
The schoolteacher made no reply, but
etood a moment looking down at the
boy.
"It's a cold day," said Polly.
"I like It," said the teacher, lifting
bis broad shoulders and smiting tbem
with his hands. "God has been bouse
cleaning. The dome of the sky Is all
swept and dusted. There Isn't a cobweb anywhere. Santa Claus come?"
"Yes," said the younger children, who
made a rush for their gifts and laid
tbem on chairs before him.
"Grand old chap!" said he, staring
thoughtfully at tbe flannel cat ln hi*
hands. "Any idea who it 1st"
"Can't make out," said Mrs. Vaughn;
"very singular man."      \
"Generous, too," the teacher added.
"That's the best cat I ever saw. Tom.
If 1 bad my way the cats would all be
made of flannel. Mi** Polly, what did
you get?"
"This," said Polly, handing blm th*
loeket
"Beautiful!" eald he, turning It in hi*
band.   "Anything Inside?"
Polly showed him how to open it
He sat a moment or more looking at
tbe graven gold.
"Strange!" said he presently, surveying tbe wrought cases.
Mrs. Vaughn was now at his elbow.
"Strange?" she Inquired.
"Well, long ago," said he, "I heard
<of one like it. Some time It may solve
the mystery of your Santa Claus." '
An ear of the teacher had begun to
swell and redden.
"Should have pulled my cap down,"
aaid be as tbe widow spoke of It
"Frostbitten years ago, and If Tm ont
long ln tbe cold I begin to feel lt"
"Must be very painful," said Polly,
aa Indeed It was.
"No," said he, wltb a llttle squint aa
he touched tbe aching member. "If*
good. I rather like lt. I wouldn't take
anything for that ear. It—It"— He
hesitated, as If trying to recall the advantages of a chilled ear. "Well, I
shouldn't know I bad any ears if it
weren't for that one."
CHAPTER XIII.
A REMARKABLE   flgnre   wa*
young Sidney Trove, the new
teacher, in district No. 1.   He
was ueuring nineteen years of
ege'that winter.
■' '1 like that," he-said to th'e-.trustee,
'who had been telling blm of the unruly
boys, great, bulking fellows that made
trouble every winter term. ^'Trouble—
it'* a grand thing—but I'm not selfish,
and if I find any I'll agree to divide It
-with the boys. I don't know but I'll be
generous and let them have the most
of It If, they put me out of the achoolhouse I'll have learned something."
Th* trustee looked at the six (eel
and twp inchea of bone and muscl*
that sat lo.uin.Iiif. lu a chair—looked
from eud to end of lt
"What'* that?" he Inquired, smiling.
"That I've no business there," said
young Mr. Trove.
"I gues* you'll dew," .said the trustee. "Make 'em toe tba line; that'* all
I got t' *ay."
"Ami all I've got to do Is my best.   I
don't promise any  more,"  the other
, answered modestly as be rose to leave.
Llnley school wag at tbe fonr corners in Pleasant valley—a low frame
structure, small and weathered gray.
Window*, with no shade' jr shutter,
(were set, two on a side, IU perfect apposition. A passing traveler could see
through tbem to the rocky pasture beyond. Who came there for knowledge,
thongh' a fool, was dubbed a "scholar."
It waa a word sharply etched in the
dialect of that region. If one were to
say "RkQllur-r-r" he might come near
it Every winter mottling the scholaj
entered a llttle vestibule which was
part of the wood shed. He passed an
aih barrel ail- the odor of drying
wood, hung cap and coat on a peg ln
tb* closet, lifted the latch of a pino
door and came info tbe schoolroom. If
before 9 it would be notey with shout
and lahgfater, the but* oi tongues, the
tread of running feet Big girls ln
neat apron* would be gossiping at the
■tor* hearth; small boy* wonld be
cbailng each otber np and down aisles
and leaping the whittled desk* of pine;
llttle girl* in. checked flannel or home-
a bang that shook'tne windows. 'There
was no halting—it was all over in half
a minute.
"You'll please remain there," said he
coolly, "until I tell you to sit down."-
He turned his back on the bqlly,
walked slowly to, his chair and opened
his book again.
epun would be circling in a song play;
big boys would be trying feats of
strength that ended ln loud laughter.
So lt was the first morning of that
winter term in_ 1850. A tall youth
stood by the window. Suddenly he
gave a loud "Sh-h-h!" Running feet
fell silently and baited; words begun wltb a shout ended ln a whisper.
A boy making caricatures at the blackboard dropped bis chalk that now fell
noisily. A whisper, heavy with awe '
and expectation, flew hissing from lip
to lip, "The teacher!" There came a
tramping in tbe vestibule, the door
latch Jumped with a loud rattle, and
In came Sidney Trove. All eyes were i
turned upon him. A look of rectitude, I
dovelike and too good to be true, came
over many faces.
"Good morning," said the young man,
removing his cap, coat and overshoes.
Some nodded, dumb with timidity. Only a few little ones had tbe bravery to
speak up, a* they gave back the words
in a tone that would have fitted a golden text He came to tbe roaring stove
and stood a moment, warming his
hands. A group of the big boys were
in a corner whispering. Two were
.sturdy and quite six feet tall —the ,
Beach boys. .   .
"Big as a bull moose," one whispered, i   ■
"An' stouter," eald another.
The teacher took a pencil from hi*
pocket and tapped the desk.
"Please take your seats," said he.
All obeyed. Then he went around
with the roll and took their names, of
which there were thirty-four. 1      I
"I believe I know your, name," said
Trove, smiling,' as he came to Polly
Vaughn. |
"1 believe you do," said she, glancing
np at hlin, with bnlf a smile and a little move ln ber lips that seemed to
ask, "How could you forget me?" j
Then the teacher, knowlng^the peril
•of her eyes, became very dignified as
he glanced  over the  books  she  bad
brought to school.    He knew it waa ]
going to be a hard da;.   For a little j
he wondered if he had not been foolish, !
after all, in trying a job so difficult and I
so perilous.   If he should be thrown out
of school he felt sure it would ruin
him—be could never look Polly ln the
face again.   As he turned to begin the
work of teaching It' seemed to him a
The teacher tore hiih out of the place.
"Take lr home with you tonight"
■aid he, continuing his talk to th*
primer class. "Spell lt over, so yon
won't have to stop long between words.
All who.read i{ well tomorrow will get
another chapter."
They began to study at home. Wonder grew,.and pleasure came With labor as tbe tale went on.
He dismissed tbe primer readers,
calling the first class in geography.
As they took their places he repaired
the broken seat a part of whlcb had
been torn off the nails. The fallen
rebel stood leaning, bis back to the
school. He had expected help, but the
reserve force had failed him.
"Joe Beach, you may take your seat,"

The big boys'"had settled themselves
ln a back corner side by side, a situation too favorable for mischief. He
asked them to take otber seats. Tbey
complied sullenly and with hesitation.
He looked over books, organized tbe

There was a moment of dead silence.
That big youth, the terror, of Llnley
school, was now red and dumb with
amazement. His deviltry had begun,
but how had the teacher seen It with
his back turned?
"I'll think It over," said the boy sullenly.
The teacher laid down his book calmly, walked to the seat of the young
rebel, took him by the collar and tbe
back of the neck, tore him out of th*

An. Elaborately Prepared Crlm*.
This story of an elaborately prepared crime was told by Sir Robert
Anderson of Scotland Yard, London.
A criminal marked a millionaire as
his quarry and rented a bedroom near
the railway station from which the
rich man took the train for town.
Well dressed and well groomed, he
took his seat in the same compartment, attracting notice, only by his
apparent desire to remain unnoticed
while he dealt with' the papers he
carried ■ in a stylish handbag. One
morning after * 'e*** such journeyB
he gave vent to his annoyance at
having forgotten his keys. A stranger
sitting in the opposite comer politely
offered him hip bunch ih the hope
that he would find on it' a key to
open the bag. But none of them
would fit the lock. At the suggestion
of the stranger, who, of course, was.
an accomplice, the millionaire then
produced his bunch of keys, and a
few seconds sufficed to enable the
thief to take a wax impression of the
key of the rich man's safe. A few
weeks I later the safe was rifled, and
before the crime was discovered the
chief: waa across the channel with
his booty.
"'       Why He  Hotitated.
Why does this man stand upon the
pavement trembling with terror,
afraid to enter hia' own home?
Listen and I will tell you:
This afternoon at S o'clock he received a letter from his bank asking
him to' step around and pay a note
that was due. He scribbled the following answer upon a slip-of paper:
"Can't possibly do it. Got to meet
another little thing thia afternoon that
won't be put off."
Af)out- the same time * a messenger
boy brought him a note from his vvife
asking him to meet her at his office
at 4 to go with her to the dentist's. ,
Of course he got the answers mixed,
and he Ib wongering whether he had
better attempt Sn explanation or set
out for Australia.—Strand Magazine.

Full Satisfaction.
A musician snd a young banker
were dining at a continental restaurant, and a dispute ran high between
them. At last the musician, a music
hall "star," sprang up and pulled out
a card, which the banker at once accepted and put in his pocket. Two
days later they met in a public park.
At once the musician exclaimed:
"Sir, you have not yet given me
aatisfaction I"
"That I have, and to the fullest extent." was the cool answer. "You
gave me a ticket for your concert last
night. I went and sat out the performance to the end. What more do you
wantP"—London Answers.

THE DEVILFISH.
Ita   Ability  to  Chance   Ito  Own   and
the Water's Color.
"I was lying on a roqk watching ttio
movements of some lnnd crabs which
kept retreating from the water, an the
tide rose, when suddenly a crab dhsbe-l
frantically from the water,, and out
after It galloped — there Is no other
word for It—a devilfish nearly two feet
across," writes an observer from Avn-
lon, Cal. "The animal continued the
chase a short distance, lifting Its tentacles lu tbe air In a sort of overhead
motion; tben, finding pursuit hopeless,
lt withdrew with a peculiarly unpleasant writhing, gliding motion characteristic of these animals. Upon reaching the water It stationed Itself Jnst nt
tbe edge, so mimicking the color of the
bottom that when I glnneed^awny and
looked suddenly back I eodld not nt
once distinguish It. This devilfish hnd
the appearance of a cat 'watching for
mice, and when a crab was seen It
would shoot out a long, attenuated
tentacle and attempt to seize it. B.v
carefully Insinuating my way to the
water's edge I qnickly grasped tbe
specimen and after a abort struggle
tore It from the rocks and secured It.
"At various times I bad from three
to Sve devilfishes ln an lnclosnre
where I could watch tbem change color
and test their strength. In confinement If the tank bottom was dark,
they assumed various tints, generally
a dark reddish brown, but toe largest
one was a tigerlike creature, about
three feet across, with a ground of
livid white covered with black or dnrk
gray blotches, giving It a truly fiendish
appearance, especially as the eye*
were conspicuous and appeared to emit
lambent gleams. The change of color
waa marvelous in Ita rapidity. In a
special tank in whlcb two of these
prisoner* were confined they occupied
the corners, facing outward, with arms
either colled under or above them. At
any offensive movement on my part,
presenting my band under water, the
color scheme would change. A blush
appeared t* pass over the entire surface, and ln a large squid I can only
compare lt to heat lightning—a rapid
and continued series of flushing and
paling, from deep brick red to gray.
"It wa* very^evldent that the animals differed much tn pugnacity.
Some did not resent my touching tbem;
others merely threw a tentacle In my
direction, while one never touched me,
but directed Its siphon at my hand
under water and sent a violent current
In that direction, apparently endeavoring to blow my hand away. It waa
fascinating to observe the range this
water gun had and how by seeming
intuition the devilfish could direct It
at my band aa I alowly moved It nbout
while attempting to attract the animal's -tttention In an opposite direction.?

"We want to do the square thing,"
wrote the editor of the Hickory Ridge
Missourian, "to old Spike Thunder-
bash, of the McKinstry neighborhood.
Our readers will remember that we
have spoken of him sometimes * as
the ragtag and bobtail of all creation.
"That old' scalawag has played more
mean trickB on ub than he has wartB
on his hands, and we've given it to
him hot and heavy every time. We
don't allow no man to get the bulge
on us without coming back at him.
"But we've forgiven old Spike. A
short time ago he dropped into our
sanctum and asked how much he
was behind on subscription. We told
him eleven years, and he dug down
in his jeans, fished up a dirty wad
of bills, and squared up. It's the
decentest thing he ever done since
we've been running a jpaper in this
town.
"The old scarecrow was drunk when
he done it, but we don't lay that'tip
against him. Old .Spike has some
good points, and we, shan't say another word about him until he tries

Elephant  Dies  of  Grief.
Paris—Said, the largest elephant in
the Paris Zoological Gardens, died of
grief a few daye ago.
He was bought by the Jardin des
Plnntes from the London Zoo, and
brought over to Paris by Keeper
Neef 24 years ago. Neef remained
Said's keeper, and the elephant loved
him dearly. The brute was sweet-
tempered, 88 a rule, but last year, in
a fit of ill-temper brought about by
illness, he killed his friend and keeper,  Neei.
Since then the elephant has literally been shrinking away until he
became little but skin and bone.
There is no doubt whatever that
Said knew what he had done, deeply regretted it, and died of grief.
Passing of Historic Fair.

Elizabeth, is a thing of the past.

injunction being applied for by the
Mitcham Common Conservators restraining them from doing so.

Nationality Changed Without Mavlng.
A curious illustration of the" ups
and downs of international politics
comes from the Savoy village of Saint
Jean de Maurienne, where a woman
has died at the age .of 93 in the village in which she was born, and
without ever leaving it has had her
nationality changed three times. She
was born in 1814, and as Bonaparte
had then seized the territory she
was "French." When the Kingdom
of Sardinia was reconstituted the
same year, after his fall, she became
"Italian," and, finally,* on Nice and
Savoy being ceded .to. France in 1860,

Von Moltke's Taciturnity.
Von Moltke's objection to the waste
of words is illustrated by German
army officers, who tell this story:
Just before the train pulled out of
the. station a captain of hussars en-
.Secl the general's compartment, and,
recognizing him, saluted with ''Guten
morgen, excellent." Two hours later
the train slowed up at a way station.
The captain rose, saluted, and with
another "Guten morgen; excellenz,"
left the train. Turning to one of
liis companions Von Moltke said,
with an expression of the greatest
disgnst.—"Intolerable .gasbag."

ln man, pollute the spring and disease

"Why are you so sure ?"
"The man," the witness said, "goes
about asserting that he is Santa
Claus."
"And," said the lawyer, "you hold
do you, that when a man goes about
asserting that he is Santa Claus .it's
a -tlear proof of his insanity ?"
"I do."
"Because," said the —itness, in a
loud, indignant voice, "I happen to
be Santa Claus myself,"—San Francisco Argonaut.
It is easier to prevent than'it is

is the companion of neglected colds,

cold and prevent inflammation from

That is a common enough request,
but what gives it a peculiar interest
here is that the carter, having complied or not with the modest demand, is confronted nt the other
corner of the building by another

A report from eastern centres
says that Dame Fashion has a way
of centering her efforts on some
particular portion of the costume
and letting the other details take
care of themselves, as It were. This
year she has seen fit to emphasize
the sleeve, and to such an extent
that garments are actually dated by
their sleeves as this season's or
last's. After a year or two of talk
about narrow shoulders, we suddenly find ourselves in the midst
of an extremely long shoulder
fashion era, says the correspondent,
The French who have hithertofore
leaned toward the narrow shoulder
effects, are now leaders in the new
long shoulder movement,
There are scores of ways of at-
talning the long shoulder effect, all
oi which have their followers. The
smartest in appearance, but the
most difficult in reality, Is that accomplished by cutting the garment
with a long shoulder seam. Again,
we have garments, both coats and
waists, showing the sleeve cut in
one with the body. The greatest
difficulty In this latter style Is to
make it becoming to the wearer. It
is apt to indicate the shoulders as
sloping off too abruptly for beauty.
This, however, may be overcome by
attaching little caps run with feath-
erbone cord or tape to the upper
part of the sleeve lining, thus hording the sleeve tops out to a becoming breadth.
Quite the most novel of aU the
new sleeves presented this season
is that of lace inset under the extended shoulder line. The armhole
is left free and finished as though
the garment were to be sleeveless.
The inset sleeve of lace does not
contrast with the fabric of the waist
in color.

reached these shores, the Inset lace
sleeves were particularly noticeable
because of their most unique shape.
The coat was of heavy white tussah
and reached just below the hip line.
The armholes were cut so large that
they reached the -wajjt line. Into
these were set full lace'-leeves that
in shape resemble-1 nothing so
much as a pair of men's riding
breeches. The straight portion
came at the top of the arm, the
sharply biased seam, being beneath,
so that all the fullness came under
the arm rather than on the shoulder, an exact reversion of regulation sleeve models, A sailor collar
heavily embroidered In soutache
with touches of gold and blue was
s*t in, not about the neck, but three
inches down on the shoulders, ending in the front with white silk tassels. Gold and pearl buttons a<J-J
another touch to the beauty of the
garment, . '
Among other garments just In
from Paris one notices ceremonious
costumes of silk and voile, the silk
material used for the coat, and the
voile for the skirt and bodice. Voile
more than holds Its own in fashion
favor this spring, Not only do we
find this In the plain colors, but in
every possible variation af checks
and stripes, and even in plaids of
the brilliant clan variety.
A very fetching fashion is that of
silk, or a striped voile, over a checked silk, The result ia not as bitarre
as It sounds, and when handled
with a llttle discretion is most at-
traetiva.
Soft draping materials of all
sorts prevail, Foulards, which have
been down and out for several

She professed great interest and delight.   She cried:   '
"How the noble aspect of beautiful
trees stirs up the keenest ^motions of
the soul!" ' Then- patting a great,
rough- tree trunk, she went on, "You

A well known New YOrS lawyer

beyond the necessity of such an indefinite statement a he made on that
occasion. The youag lawyer found
him with his fee', propped up on his
desk, while he gfczed dreamily at the
ceiling through a cloud of tobacco
smoke.
"But, really, sir, I must insist that
you give me some definite, idea as to
when you will . settle," the lawyer
said, after having been gently rebuffed,
The author consented to, low^r his

Health - ' and   Strength    Regained   by
Taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
The after effects of H grippe are
more serious than the disease itself.
f Its. victims are left low spirited .and
^depressed; they are tortured with
headaches and backaches,; fever and
chills. It leaves the sufferer an easy
prey to bronchitis, pneumonia, rheumatism and often that most dreaded
of.- all diseases, consumption. For
the after effects of la grippe there
is' absolutely no medicine can equal
Dr. Williams Pink Pills. Every dose
helps make new, rich, red blood that
drives disease from the system, and
makes weak despondent men and women bright, cheerful and strong. Miss
Eugenie Donaldson, oi. St. Jerome,
Que., found a cure through these
pills after other remedies had failed
to help her. She says: "I took 'a
grippe and did not seem able to
shake it off. It developed into bronchitis; I coughed day and night and
grew so weak that I could hardly
move about. I tried remedy after
remedy, but as nothing seemed .to
help me I began to dread that consumption was developing and that
my case was incurable. A friend
urged me to try jr. Williams' Pink
Pills and following that advice I took
the pills faithfully, following the directions given for their, use. I am
thankful I did so for they fully restored my strength and; I have since
enjoyed perfect health. , I will always advise sick and ailing people
to give Dr. Williams' Piiik Pills a
trial for I firmly believe they will
find great benefit from their use."
Ri-i, red blood is the one thing
needed to maintain health and
strength. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
actually make rich, red. blood. That
is the reason of their great popularity in every country 'hi the world.
That is why they cure anaemia, general weakness, rheumatispvneuralgia,
indigestion, St. Vitus dance, partial
paralysis and the ills of girlhood and
womanhood, with all its»'-distressing
headaches. See that you,, get the

A number of railway men were
once discussing the question of accidents.
"The roads in Scotland," said one
i.%cial, "used to have a bad name,
indeed, in respect to accidents. No
one thought of embarking on a railway journey unless he had provided
himself with an accident policy of
insurance.
"The famous Dr. Norman Macleod
was once about to set off on a long
journey through the Scotch country.
Just as the train was pulling out the
clergyman's servant put his head in
through the window and said:
"Ha'e ye ta'en an insurance ticket,
sir ?'
'"I have,' replied the doctor.
W-'Then,' replied'the servant, 'write
yeer name on it and gi'e it to me.
They ha'e an awful habit of robbin'
the corpses on this line."

EXHAUSTED NERVES
LEAD TO INSANITY
It is Wise to Keep the Nervous System in
Full Health and Vigor by Using
Dr. Chase's* Nerve Food.
The leading artist of a great JNew
York newspaper committed suicida
recently because on his return home
he found his apartments in disorder,
the painters and decorators being in
possession.
This is an illustration of overwrought nerves leading to insanity,
and, whatever may be the last straw
to 'unbalance" the mind, there can be
no. doubt' that exhaustion of the
nerves is always a cause of mental
collapse.
Diseases of the nerves are common
to, all walks of life, and the earlier
symptoms are sleeplessness, nervous,
headaches, loss of memory, inability
to concentrate the mind, indigestlpn,
tired, languid feelings,, discouragement and despondency.
Dr. Chase's i\erve Food cures diseases of the nerves in the only natural way, by actually increasing tne
amount of nerve force in the body.
By its regular and persistent iise
the most severe forms of nervous exhaustion, such as partial paralysis,
prostration, and locomotor ataxia, are
thoroughly and completely cured.
Mrs.  J.   Hatcher,    224  __herbroo~e
street, Peterboro', Ont., and whose
husband is a mo.uer at the Hamilton Foundry, states:
"1 had an attack of inflammatory
rheumatism, which 'ett me in a very
rundown state of health, and in faot
my whole nervous system seemed exhausted and worn out. 1 could not
sleep, and at times the pains in my
head were almost unbearable. As a
rseult of these symptoms 1 was unable to attend to my housework, arid
felt miserable most of the time. Un
the advice of a. friend 1 began using
Dr. .Chase's Nerve Food, end can say
that it has proved a very great benefit to me. 1 am able to do my own
work now, and feel stronger and
healthier than i have for years, 1
can truthfully state that this is due
to the use of Dr-. Chase's Nerve Food,
which 1 consider a great healtn
builder."

and avoid all the ills and weakness-

PEANUTS!
WAS there ever a boy, or girl,
either, who didn't like peanuts?
If there was. I am sure Polly
Ei ans has never met him. What fun
would a circus be without a baa or two
of peanuts to feed the animals, two-
leg.jed and four?
How many of you really know more
about this delicious nut, except that it ls
so mighty good to eat that when we get
eturU'cI it ia very hard to stop? ;
Some children would not even know
what you meant lf ybfi went down to a
stand nntl asked for five cenj—' Worth of
fresh roasted peanuts. Por they perhaps call them groundnuts or goobers
or earth nuts or plndars, according to
the part of the country ln which they
live. You see, the peanut is a plant of
many names.
WHO,
PLAMUT5?
say next summer, when Inclined to get
cross. "This ls good peanut weather."
It will make you feel more cheerful.
Did you ever think what a lot of work
lt takes to have this peanut crop, of
which Americans are so fond that they
use-from 4,000,000 to (,000,000 bushels a
year? ' '
First, the ground must be weeded very
carefully; then early in October, as soon
as the nuts show, they are ripe, the
farmer runs a plow Under each' row to
cut oft. the main root*. Then he pulls
Up the vines all covered with nuts and
heaps them ln*_great piles, seven or eight
feet high, around a stake. Not for thres
or four weeks are the nuts ready to bs
picked off. ,      " '
Nor does this picking end the work.
All  thu*  millions  of  shells  must  be
Playthings Made of Peanuts
Did any ot you ever see great nelds
of peanuts growing on thick green,
hairy stems about two feet high? After
the flower has fallen the stem which
supports lt bends down till it pushes Into
the ground, where tbe fruit or pod develops.
The peanut's native home Is down ln
Brazil, but soon after South America
wsb discovered lt was taken back by the
explorers to Europe, and every one there
found lt so good lt was soon cultivated
In all the warm countries. For the peanut, you must know, loves an early
spring and' a hot, moist summer. As this
ls just the kind of weather that makes
boys and girls feel cross and growl over
the humidity,  you  must remember  to
sorted, the broken and discolored ones
thrown away, and the others cleaned
and polished. Thousands of boys and
girls earn their living by getting the
peanuts ready and packed up to send all
over America and Europe for tbe roasting machine.
Nice, hot roasted nuts are not the
only way we can use peanuts. Some
people ln Europe press the oil out of
them to use for a salad dressing, and
then the meal ls fed to cattle or pigs.
Who doesn't like peanut butter sandwiches? Peanut soup ls very nourishing,
while peanut toys and dolls are such
sport to make that you mutt be sure to
make some of these. \

N THE month ,of September, ' at the' time
of full moon, devout
. Japanese villagers are
.accustomed to wend
their pilgrim way, by
moonlight, along
.beautiful, wind! n.g
' paths, to tbe ancient
shrines on the mouii-
.talntops and there
*make their.pious offerings to the moon..
One such shrine
stands on the top of
Usui Pass, ■ By tho
pass for many, many,
centuries—Indeed, up
to a brief half century ago—passed and
repassed east and
west the armed cavalcades of warring
-Samurai Poor 8am--
urai! Their day Is
over. No longer are
they to be seen crossing Usui in pursuit of enemy or support of friend. For
now they must follow the paths of
peace with the rest of rlieir countrymen.
One evening we join-d the pilgrimage
to the shrine on Hs'ul Pass, and near
the top we came te a village, where we
halted for a view of the misty, moonlit
valleys at our feet and the black, rugged mountains beyond and about us. We
could almost touch the sealike clouds
that broke about the mountain peaks,
and almost see the silver streams that
wound their way among the hills. '
Climbing a long flight of steps, we
came to an old temple, from which Is
the finest view of alf. It Is uninteresting to look at, this bare Shinto temple,
with no burnishing save a polished
metal mirror and a bronze bell, which
worshipers. ring when they come to do
homage to their ancestors.
But tt has a monument—one rude,
moss-grown stone set up on another
and larger stone, with an Inscription In
Chinese Characters too old and worn to
read—and about this monument the following legend runs:
There lived long, long ago a warrior
King, and this King had the misfortune
to offend one of the Jealous gods, who
Immediately decreed that the King must
die unless he could find a friend to die
in his- stead.   Now, the King waa not
afraid to die, but he knew that his life
was more valuable than most mens
lives. So he called his comrades about
him and asked which one of them was
willing to give up his lite to save ths
King's. One after another he asked, but
although every last man was a mighty,
warrior and ready to die if need be in
the midst of battle, not a single one of
them could be found who was willing
to give up his life in place of the King.

Down From the Cliff
The King then wept bitterly, aad Itt
chanced that the Queen came upon him.
as he grieved.
"Why are you so sorrowful?" sbe>
asked. . And when he told her, she, too,
wept and-mourned; but a little later she-
' recovered her composure and begged ber
lord to attend a feast which she intended preparing for him.
The royal   tents were  found  pitched
close by  a cliff which   overhung   tbat
sea, their silk banners fluttering In tb*
breeze.   Here, to the minor music of the
.koto, the Kfng.and his comrades feasted,
.and conversed, the Queen sitting by he-
lord dressed In royal brocade that was.
embroidered all, over with cherry flowers
'  and  golden  peacocks  and blue  waterfalls, while ln her hair she wore a golden
. comb.   After the meats and other heavy
. | foods  came  rich  dainties,   which  were:
spread before them  on the beautifully
lacquered     tables—dried     persimmon*,,
bean   pasle,   sweetmeats   moulded  Into,
the shape of gay chrysanthemums and
rose petals and stars, and bowls of rice-
made sake, which the warriors lustily
quaffed.
Then the Queen stole unnoticed froir
the scene of reVelry and made her way
alone to the top of the cliff which overlooked the sea.
Here she gazed at the sun slowly setting amidst a blaze of glorious gold.
"Royal Hike myself !'r murmured ttae^
Queen, "and though setting now, 'twill
rise again. So, though I die, shall I not
live again, because I have saved the life
of my lord?"
She was young and strong and happy.
and life was sweet to her; but great
love gave her courage to die. And so.
when morning came and they searched
for her, no sign of the Queen did they
And, until, at last, far down on the.
sands at the foot of the cliff, they came
upon her golden comb.
And then the King knew that the
Queen had given up her life, a sacrifice for his; and he mourned for her bitterly many weary daye, and made a sad
pilgrimage to this very temple on t—_
way. to Usui Pass; and here he erected
this monument, and on It Inscribed the-
story of the noble death of his Queen.
Then, gazing over the plain below, he-
said thrice In a melancholy voice, "A-su—

"Is that so?" said mother. "Suppose

Sure enough! there In the nurtery was
the cunnlngest, mosicomplete washing
set, a gift from mother, toho had taken
pity on Cook Norah.
Polly immediately decided to have a
washing party, to get all her" children's
clothes clean at once. .    .
Mary, Nettle and Bess came In from
next door, and even Polly's, brother
Tom decided to help
Such a splendid wash day as it was.

BEAUTY AND COMFORT IN THE BATH ROOM"
A BATH ROOM got up In all white—
from celling to floor covering—ls
a delight to the woman who has
plenty of time or assistants to keep that
room la exquisite order. If she has
neither, let her choose -Instead a blue
and white room, which Is almost as
clean looking and a great deal easier to
keep ln order.
For the walls use one of those papers
which have an oilcloth finish. .This, if
properly hung, can be wiped off with a
damp cloth as often as spots or soil
make it necessary. Very pretty ail
white or cream white paper—absolutely
plain except for Its polished surface-
comes. White oilcloth paper, with markings of pale gray, which divide Into
delicate patterns, makes a hanging for
an uneven wall that ls better than a
plain paper, yet which doesn't take at
all, for some peculiar reason, from the
general impression of all white.
Some of the new oilcloth papers imitate tiling so perfectly that It needs a
close glance to tell the difference, especially those ln blue and white, with
the ''ny patterns copied directly from
tiler- And the beauty about fixing a
bath room, in blue and white is that
the woodwork can be left unchanged,
while for an all white room it must be
sandpapered until every bit of the colored paint is off, then given a good
coat of white paint, followed by a
coat of enamel. If you are careful about
the sandpapering, the white paint will
look as though nothing else had ever
been upon the woodwork. Yet the
walls, white all the way down to the
floor, effect a perfect transformation of V
the room.
Your bath tub should be. of course,
of porcelain, to carry out the idea of
the room in its prettiest fashion; but if
you've the old-fashioned kind, in its setting of wood, remove the paint from
that wood, as well as from the surbase,
and paint nnd enamel it, too. Treat the
tub with the sort of enamel especially
prepared for Just such work. Don t use
the ordinary enamel paints for such
work hs painting a tub, whatever you
do. It has a. way of coming off in
streaks and spots.
BATH CONTRIVANCES
White wood for the floor shows every
mark too readily to prove satisfactory,
yet some very attractive rooms have
had the floor painted white like the rest
of the room. A better way is to cover
lt with white oilcloth, or, If possible,
to match oilcloth and oilcloth paper exactly. White bath rugs suspiciously
like Turkish towels, but mighty comfortable, for all that, or those interesting ones evolved by artistic workers
from apparently the crudest of materials—white woven rags—make inexpensive and easily cleaned rugs. But
don't get anything that is heavy.
Everything .should be of a kind that
will plump Into a tub and wash, instead of getting so heavy the instant
IC gets in the water that an ordinary
cleaning is  practically  impossible.
For a blue and white room, those
blue and white bath rugs are as satisfactory as anything could be.
Nickel fixtures are less expensive and
more easily kept ln order than those of
brass, while those combinations of
glass and nickel give a pretty llttle
light touch to the room.   Glare shelves.
mounted witb nickel, hold brush and
comb and hand glass; glass bars, also.
mounted with nickel, make splendid-
towel racks, and soap dishes and sponge

china or heavy white crockery.
Of course, there are hundreds of things
made for the extravagantly pretty batik
rooms which are built Into new, beauti-
ful houses—exquisite tiles made ta lit

out of place would mar; sets ot silver1
and of silver and crystal, which ara
quite In keeping with the beautiful tiled
rooms wl ich tbey are intended to
grace, and even exquisite marble statuettes made to put Into tiny alcoves and
corners (set around with mirrors) by
way of decoration.
And, ..-.sides, there is an indescribable
number of bath contrivances, from those
rooms litti.il with a bath sunk in the
floor and approached by steps to the
simplest of shower bath makeshifts—a
sort of tubing which fits on to an "?dl- .
nary spigot.

"Men like womanly women, but still
they don't want any 'clinging vine' business about a newspaper office. If a
woman will only be natural—unless nature has made her -very disagreeable—

along all right; but lf she does otherwise, she will complain all the time, as
so many would-be newspaper women do,
that the newspaper men treat them
badly. There never was a newspaper
man mean to me ln all my experience,"
Mrs. Ida Hustcd Harper, one of the
beat newspaper women In the United
States, gives her views as follows:
"The longer one ls engaged In newspaper work the more fully she. recognizes the truth of tbe assertion, 'There
Is no training, no acquisition, nor' form
of knowledge or experience which Is not
useful to the beginner In Jourii._iem,
and to the lifelong practitioner,' She
never 'knows It all,' except when' she
begins in her 'profession.' lf, however,
we may particularize as. to a few of
the leading requirements, the sine qua
non, we will say that before the practical experience begins, there must be
the foundation of a fair education, an
understanding of spelling, punctuation,
syntax, the construction-of sentences.
If to this Is added a more extended
knowledge of rhetoric, purer and stronger English will he the result.
