Firefly,  for example, going  to   New   York,   and -Biddy   betaking  herself to Syracuse on some mysterious" errand  which  her  friends  supposed   was   connected   with   business  for   her  paper.    However,   they   got  together at last, and Judy eyed them  with triumph in her eye.  "I suppose you are going, to preach  again this evening," said Peanuts  with mock resignation, "and from  the.old text."  ��������� "Canada forever!" said Judy.  "Now girls, your thimbles and  needles."  "What is it tonight?" asked Dixie.  "You remember the Club promised to make a set of garments for  that colored child down on Cambridge Street."  "Let her  wear  a bag,", said Firefly  flippantly.  "She's In one,"-said Judy, "and in  ��������� bed.    I saw her today���������not a stitch  to put, on."  "Oh horrors!" ejaculated Jane,  putting down . a sketch she was  making of her two doves in their  fine gilt cage. "Give me some flannelette, Judy.

"It's all cut out Now angel  children���������shall I talk ' while you  work?"  "What has to be, , will be," said  Peanuts.  "I'll tell you where you were when  you left off, Judy," said Dixie who  had not yet forgiven herself for  dropping off to sleep. "You were  going to tell us about playgrounds.  Explain please. I don't know anything about them, and it seems odd  to me that we should teach children  to play."  "Well," said Judy, "the matter in  a nutshell, is this. Years ago, I  think nearly twenty, some good  women from this dear old Boston  were travelling in Germany, which  was the first country to have scientific play for children. When these  women returned home, they begged  Boston to do something for boys and  girls. They did, in a most elementary :'��������� way, by giving big boxes of  sand to little ones to play, in."  "Does    he    employ    child ' labor?"  .asked Judy.  ; "Oh yes," day shift and night shift.

"What is amusing you?" asked  Dixre goodnaturedly.  , "That widowed mother," said  Jane, "she poses from Florida to  Maine, and on chasing her to her  lair, you often find '.her to be a  drunken father���������but seriously Dixie,  do you think it is a good thing for  children ,to be exploited for the benefit of-grown people?"  "Not if you can help it," said Dixie  frankly, "but what can poor people  do?"  "Does your uncle employ American or foreign labor?" asked Jane.  "All American���������there aren't any  foreigners- in the place."  "How-long has the mill been running?"   ���������  "For years and years���������I don't  know how many."  "What is the appearance of the  employees?" .  ,  "Some of them looked pretty pale  and red-eyed," said Dixie, "and they  coughed���������of course, the atmosphere  Is linty."  "Did the children look plump and  well-nourished?" inquired Jane.  "No, they were small and spindly,  but of course these people don't eat  proper   things.    My  uncle  says  so."  "Your   uncle   is   probably   a   very  well-informed, man  on   th"   subject,"  said' Firefly  sarcastically.    Then  she  burst  Into   bitter   and   rapid   speech.

Hii  next run was' from London to Liver-/  pool, a distance of 200 miles, which  he  covered   in   exactly   33  hours.  A still more remarkable pedestrian  feat was his famous run from-' Paris  to Moscow, a distance which in- thost  days -vas 1.7G0 miles. Menson- started from the Place de Vendome', in  Paris, nt exactly ten o'clock on th������  morning of June 11, 1831, and' arrived at Kremlin, in Moscow, at ten  o'clock, June 25, having- made- th*-|  journey in about 330 hours...-Menson  never walked, but went at a dog trot,  a ga't similar to that of "Rowell," th������'  famous pedestrian of, 20 years, ago.  This gait, the dog trot, or fox ��������� trot,  as it is called, is employed by all  native  runners.  Menson was also peculiar as to  eating and sleeping. On- his. journey  he ate nothing except occasionally a  little fruit or a cracker, but would  drink much water." His rest waa  taken in a standing position," usually  leaning against a wall or. a tree.  After ten or fifteen minutes of this  rest he would waken and go on- ap-.  parently as fresh as ever.  One one occasion during a long run  he went up as usual and leaned'  against a tree to rest. His seconds  and attendants standing about had  noticed nothing unusual in his manner or appearance. Ten ' minutes  passed, fifteen, -thirty. The watchers  went closer and found that Menson  was dead.

Man of Much Promise.  F. W. Knight, the bantam-weight  champion "of England',- started wrestling when about fourteen years old.-  Six years' ago he joined the Hammersmith A.W.C., then'-run by Ferdinand  Gruhn. In 1907-he entered his first  championship,-and--was second to B.  Kaiser (Swiss), losing-'on points after  two bouts of 20m'in.~ Fie entered the  Swiss, G.' S".\'bpen'.'c8%st.', and 'was  second again. The" following year he  entered-the Swiss G.S. open 8%st.,  and- won it, -following up with the  N.A.W.A. 8V2sL championship at the  Stadium." This ".he won against the  "pick of English bantams, there being  16 stripped to wrestle. In the same  year he gained the German G.S. open  8%st.f then in 1909 he won- the Olympic 9st. open comp., also the Swiss  G.S. open 9%st. comp. 'After..that he-  entered and won.the N.A.W.A. 9%st.  championship. At Bradford, in 1910,  he reached" the final" with Cookings,  who, however,., defeated! him twice  very easily, but the other day he  won the N.A.W.A. 8%st. championship,  beating W. Trappschuh in the final,  In the Olympic Games he .was beaten  on: points' by Davis.  GIRL GOLFER IN TEENS SURPRISE  ,.. OF TOURNEY '  ��������� A 13-year-old girl was the. sensation  of ;tlfe first annual tournament of the  Southern Women's Golf association.  . .Miss Alext. Stirling, of Atlanta, Is  the phenomenon. She\won the - low  .medal. score, and went to the semi-1  finals ��������� defeating several of the  best women golfers., of the south -r-  and was only .vanquished, by Mrs.  Rogers-Smith, of Nashville, who wod  .the championship.    .'  Besides running away with the low  medal score, 'she went to the winner  of the driving contest and the approaching  and  putting, contest.  If the Southern Women's turnament  next year doesn't bar players under  21, little Alext-Stirling bids fair to  be Dixie!s champion.  DONT'S FOR ASPIRING QUARTERBACKS.  Don't   think    about   getting   hurt.  You'll get hurt if'you do.  - Don't think you can make a 50-yard  run if you. run 10 yards bacb of the.  line.  Don't-think about that girl in the  grandstand.  Don't think about what may happen  if your kick is blocked.  Don't think you know it all.  Don't let the other players run the  game for you.  Don't call a man down for a poor  play.    Encourage him.  Don't try to pass the ball to a man  ���������before you have it yourself. It means  a fumble if you do. ;  Don't make a forward pass with  your eyes closed.  QUARTER TIPS WORTH  WHILE  Don't advertise that the ball is  about to be put in-play.  Learn to pass fast and sure.  Get the ball to the runner so he  can handle it without losing speed.  Remember    fumbles _mean.    lost  ground. "When TatV.-=-S x:zrsz on nxe  grim 4es������fe.  Don't, fall to cut In sharply on end  runs.  The forward pass is a ground gainer  ��������� master It,  Use the straight arm freely. Tack-  lers don't like It.  Catch the ball before you start to  run back a punt.  KICKS IN FOOTBALL  The Roniii'i'te ol' Jri.sis-i-'/ J. Lime "  Youghal point lace, or which a complete dress has been ir.tii!e I'r'r Queen"  Mary, is the most beautiful and cos:; y  of Irish lace, and or.g.nateil indirectly .  from the failure of ..the potato crop  in 1846, .though the inspiration was  furnished by a piece of point de Milan  which fell into the hands ct' the abbess  of a convent at Youghal, County Cork.  Hitting'upon the idea of setting up  a lucrative industry for .the half-  starved children attending the convent  school,.she studied this, stray bit of  lace, .unravelled . the threads one by  .one, "and " finally mastered the complicated" details. She then selected  the children cleverest, at needlework,  and taught them separately what she  herself had learned. -Ffrom Youghal  the point lace'industry has spread to  other parts of Ireland,' notably to some  districts in the neighbourhood of Ken-  -mare, County~Kerry. -The/chief- characteristic of Youghal. point ,Iace kis  that it is worked' entirely with the  needle. ���������.  Diagram  Showing" Sideline  Blocking  There are.many-kinds of kicks In  football and' as.; many ways, to make  them.' The "most common Is the long,  high punt."  >.McKay, Brown's captain last year,  was the best man I ever saw at this  style says Earl " Sparkling' of the  Brown (United- :States) University.  He held the \ ball " at arm's length  and on a. level - with , his head,  the ball pointing in at an' angle of 30  degrees. '" He 'brought his ��������� leg up  straight to' the ,knee .until- his foot  turned lnward.iat-'.-the.'same'angle as  the ball. He caught .the ball on the  "side, giving it 'the "spiral twist. His  kick continued through until his foot  was' over his; head.  -Ia .the east, the long low punt ia  gaining favor.  Boy   Wonder  Puts   His  Dad  in  the  Hospital.

Sense about Silos  Silos are a form of insurance, protecting their owners against drouth  with its grassless pastures, insuring  the payment of nutritious, palatabk  feed upon demand to live stock, conserving In digestible form practical!}  the entire corn plant, and warranting  the cash sale of hay and grain wher  prices are particularly attractive. II  ls a wonderful grip that silos glv������  their owners on the difficult situations that arise in unfavorable seasons. They should be considered not  as minor conveniences, nor yet as  worth.; having only when a peculiai  set of conditions exist. They are  economically .Indispensable to stock-  farming and dairying wherever corn  grows. The kind, size, and form oi  silo are points to be carefully studied  in relation to conditions. There is  no silo for which strong claims cannot truthfully be made. Durabilitj  and air-tightness are the uppermos1  values, to be sought.  . . To Walk Well  An artist has. lately been complaining that his "chief objection to fashionable, dress is that it reveals-'so completely'the Inability of. the "average  woman to walk well. He says that  most either slouch or strut, and  he, gives the following instructions on  "how to walk": ���������  '"The head should, not be held erect  as .If by; effort -��������� a woman should not  look like a soldier on parade. The  steps should not be jerky ��������� however  quick, they should be 'smooth.' The  movement should be from the hips,  and the "knees bent as. little as possible. A slight ��������� a very slight ���������  bend forward is graceful, if the  walker-, be ��������� tall arid slim. The arms  sh6uld. not. swing noticeably, but'  should hang freely ��������� elbows should  be' unobservable. The feet should  turn out slightly, and walking should  appear to be done chiefly en the toes  ��������� the heel down first style Is unpardonable. .But the chief features  and charms of a'goqd carriage are its  seeming :leisureliness, the absence of  'strut' and 'slouch,' and a certain air  of unconscious grace."  The same critic recommends daily  practice' in front of a full-length  mirror ��������� exercises to be taken preferably in cycling; knickers, as the  movement of the limbs can then be  better stu/Jied.  A Sharp Bargain  - A German ��������� gentleman wanted to  take a "day's drive through the country. ��������� He applied to a stable for the  horse and carriage. The owner, not  knowing the German was slow to give  ������������������him the team. Finally the German  pulled out" a rofll of banknotes and'  said: "I wifll buy your horse and rig,  providing you will buy them back at  the same price when I return this  evening." The dealer, not wishing to  offend a probable future customer,  'consented. When in the evening the  German presented himself and expressed hiis pleasure ait the ride, the  dealer, according to agreement, paid  him back his money, and the customer  started to take his leave.  "I beg your pardon, sir!" exclaimed the dealer; "but you have forgotten  to pay for the hire, you know."  "Pay for the hire ? Why, my dear  sir," replied the German,./'if you will  exerciseyou'r -memory a trifle' 3"bu will  agree that I have been driving my  own horse and carriage ail day, and  now you have bought them back they  are yours.
