"Talk!" said the young baron-  ���������ess, throwing herself down in an  ���������arm-chair which stood turned away  from  the, window.  Lucie in her embarrassment took  refuge in the photographs again.  "How beautiful the world must be!"  she said at last.  "I -wish I could show you everything, Lucie," repeated Hortcnse.  "I would not care to see it again  alone;   but with you���������"  Lucie had seated herself on the  *arm of the chair, and. had thrown  'her arm around her. "Tell me about  it," she, begged. And Ho r tense told  ���������of the green Swiss Lakes, of the  mountains covered with, eternal  ���������snow, of sunny Italy, of the blur*.  Mediterranean, and of moonlight  nights in Venice. Lucie had clasped  her hands together and breathed'  'quickly, her"'checks'glowed, and her  rosy lips were a little open; she sat  ���������there like a child listening to a fa-'ry-  tale. She-listened in this way for  .hours.       ���������.  While they were talking Hortcnse  .-got up and brought in a little Kus-  :sia-leather chest, out of which she  -took -all sorts , of things. The dried  ���������Alpine roses she had picked on the  'Rigi; the edelweiss came from the  Bernina Pass���������an Englishman had  given them to her; that dagger she  had picked up in Florence; the mask  ���������was one she had worn during the  Carnival at Rome; the little gold-  embroidered, shoes she had bought in  ���������Constantinople in a bazar, and that  iava brooch in Naples.  Tvro  Remarkal)le  Epitap_3.' ,  The two most remarkable epitaphs in  the United States are those of*'Daniel  Barrow, formerly of Sacramento, and  of Hank Monk, , Horace Greeley's  stage driver. The former reads as follows:, ';Here is laid Daniel Barrow,  who was born in Sorrow and Borrowed little from nature except his name  and his love to mankind aud his hatred  for rddskins. Who was nevertheless a  gentleman and' a dead' shot, who  through*.'! long, life never killed 'his  man except in self defense or by accident, and who, when he at last went  under beneath the bullets of his���������cow-  ardly' 'enemies hi Jeff Morris' saloon,  did so in the sure and certain hope of  a glorious and everlasting morrow."  Hank Monk's epitaph reads( thus:  "Sacred to the memory of Hank Monk,  the whitest, biggest hearted and best  known stage driver in the west, ,who  wns kind to all and .brought "ill to none.,  He lived in a strange era and was a '  hero, and the wheels' of his coach are  uow ringing on the golden streets."

There are few women in Canada  who have not heard of " free alkali,"  but there are many who do not understand the term. The term is always  used in connection with soap. If  any think it is meant to convey that  it is alkali given free with the soap,  then alkali is very dear at the price.  But it does not mean that. A soap  containing free alkali is a soap in  which the alkali is not properly incorporated with the fatty acids used in  the making of ,soap, and such a soap  is most injurious to the clothing and  hands. Free alkali in soap will burn  the nap off wool and the surface off  linen, coarsen the skin of the hands,  rendering them liable to eczema, make  the nails brittle and chip off. Such  a soap does not possess thorough  cleansing properties. The dilference  between a soap containing free alkali  and a neutral soap is easily tested.  Sunlight Soap is a neutral soap, and no  one who has once used Sunlight Soap  for any time could with satisfaction  go back to any of the common laundry  soaps on the market. Complaints  about the hands and the clothes are  unknown whore' Sunlight Soap is used.  603.  Anotlier   Me<liot1.'

'  , The   Spoon  Game.  The spoon game is a pleasant amusement for a party where the guests are  all known to each other.  <   The players form a circle, in the mid-  , die of which stands the spoon handler,  blindfolded.

Besides silver and brass,  glass-candlesticks  in old English and  colonial designs are seen.

Possessing no powers of  reflection  or  refraction,   the   light  of  even a strong flame is .diminished at'  least ^one-half and a most depressing  effect   obtained.    Candle   shades   are  works of art, whether made of silk and  trimmed  with   chiffon   and .beads  or  fashioned ot paper and decorated with  water   color   designs.    Glass   shades,  cubes of opalescent material, jewel in-  crusted.*' are charming, as are also the  parchment paper ones with old prints*  in delicate pink and blue tints inserted  on one side.

Before stitching any bias seam of a  dress skirt put'a piece of tape between  the goods and the lining of one side  and stitch through it.

'  - Beauty is the gift of nature, but one's  bodily appearance is largely what-one  chooses to make it. A plain facets improved "by careful dressing; a pretty  one is partially spoiled by the lack of  it. As a rule, plaiu women are the  ones who study the art of dress and  realize its full . importance, although  an occasional pretty ,woman is found  to be well posted.

When the spoon handler makes a correct guess, the player named has to  take his place."  A  Sualtelilce  Lisr.jird.  In the reptile house of the zoological  gardens of London is a case which contains several curious sand skinks and  has lately also become the home of a  curious  relative  of  these  four  footed  lizards.    Living specimens of this species are seldom   brought to the temperate zone.   It is a native of Australia  and Tasmania and "is called, the limbless or scale footed lizard.    It is about  -twenty inches long, with shining scales  of sober colors, but' the.under surface  is pale, with a few dark dots and bars  running around its body near the head.  The small legs are entirely hidden under the skin, so that this lizard is as  easily taken for a snake as is its English   cousin,   the   blindworm,   but  the  mild expression of its head is furnished  with   well   formed   eyelids,   and   the  ���������tongue is slight and thick and can only  extend   a    short    distance   from   the  mouth.    This lizard owes its name to  the fact that where tbe body merges  into the tail is a pair of narrow, scaly  flaps,   pressed   tightly   to   their   sides  when the reptile is at rest, but used to  propel  it  when   in  motion,  and  these  flaps entirely cover the small toe bones.  keep thoroughly trim," complained a  girl the other day, as she carefully inspected her wardrobe with a view to  repairs. Of course it does. It takes  time to eat and sleep and enjoy oneself, but as we have all the time there  is we might as well invest it to good  purpose. It pays to look well, in satisfaction to onpself and in the opinion  of others. The world always lias and  always will judge by externals, and a  good appearance has a distinct financial worth.  j Children*'*   Questions.  1 In dealing with children's questions  mothers, should be careful* to discriminate between {those which are asked  from' the desire to know and those  which are the outcome merely of a  childish love of talking. The latter are  often best dealt with-by saying quite  gently, ���������"If you think a little, dear, you  will be able to answers that for vour  self."      *     * '* "    ���������  To questions of the former class the  mother should reply, if possible, ^ as  carefully as she; would to an adult  questioner. If the matter be beyond  the child's comprehension or unsuitable  for explanation to'one of tender years,  never make a foolish or' evasive answer. Saj' simply: "I'.cannot explain  that tto 'you now,', for you are not. old  enough to understand it. By and by,  when you are older, if you come aud  ask me-again I will do my best to tell  you what you want to know."  If pareuts would speak thus to their  'children, instead of snubbingvor laughing at their questions, they would keep  *��������� their confidence.  The  Baby's  Ear*.

Mix the crumbs with  half a cupful of" gasoline added to a  quart of water, roll into a ball and rub  the paper clean with: it.-' Never, of  course, use gasoline where there is a  Hume of any kind, and when one part  of the dough ball is dirty turn it inside  and beginagainwith the.clean part. The  cleaning of the pictures in the houses of  parliament iu London has all been done  by means of a cloud of breadcrumbs  discharged through a tube by compressed air. The crumbs have been  found to be the only process which will  remove the dirt and soot without injury to the pictures. Artists erase incorrect work with a bit of bread rolled  into a ball in preference to an eraser  of any other kind.   lee Cream.  If half of the cream to be used in  making ice cream is first scalded and  the sugar melted in it,, there will be no  danger of churning it into butter, as  sometimes occurs when it is used un-  scalded. After cooling add the remainder of the cream demanded by the recipe.  Industrial   _Ife.  There has been  in  some quarters a  disposition to regard  the  presence of  women   in  industrial'  life   as * an   ab-  c  normal condition of affairs, and, therefore, as something to be discouraged by  all means possible. This opinion is the  opinion of those who look at "the question only .superficially, those who are  ignorant of economic history- who fail  to comprehend the working of economic  laws and the changes In industrial conditions which have taken place during  the last half cem-iry. The industrial  history of the last h.-iif century is not  a history of the increased employment  of women. It is simply a history of  industrial readjustment. Women have  always been workers, but changes have  taken; place in the conditions under  which they work.���������Philadelphia Ledger.  For the Boy Who Ih  Scolded.  A Texas ,boy -writes:'. "What'is your  best 'advice to a boy who is .told every  time, ho says anything that he is telling  a lie' an'd whose mother is always mad  at him and is" always finding fault .'wittL  what he does? I just want to know what  you would do tf'j'ou.were in this .position."        ��������� , . *     * r .   *  I would bo first sure that I told-the  truth and that'I didn't deserve the-fault-  finding."- Then I would try to show, my  mother-and those about * me ��������� by my-patient, manly conduct when ~ under lire  that I had good stuff in me. A boy who  is conscious that lie is in tho right need  have nothing to fear.- If he is so un-"  fortunate as to have a scolding mother,  he can simply take it as one of the burdens of life which he mustiearn to bear.  There is no one who has not his difficulties���������no boy who has smooth sailing all  the time. Just make a rule every day to  do the best you can and learn to take  the hard things of life with equanimity.  Above all. don't lose your temper be-1  cause'others do. A good thiug for a boy v  to learn is not to answer back. A scold-'  his person will soon quit scolding if he  comes to find that he is doing it all.���������  American Boy. '      ,  Proof of the Story. "  Several years ago we owned a fine, larga  gray cat. He was fond of hunting and  would often bring his game to us,-and we  were very proud of him.  One evening we wore telling a visitor  about his hunting excursions and mentioned the fact that he bad caught a rabbit tbe day before. The cat, who was in  tho room and who had listened very earnestly to this got .up and walked to the -  dooc and asked us, cat fashion, to let  him out.- We opened the door and  thought no more cf him.  Later in the evening, when our visitor  ���������was going away, and the door was again  opened, there was the cat in frout of the  doorway with a rabbit in his mouth, dead,  but still warm, and almost as large as  himself. He dropped it and looked up in  the visitor's face,' as much as to say, "I  want to show you that they were tell'ug  Uic truth about inc."

Fashion was the old name for a certain disease of tho horse. It is alluded  to in "The1 Taming of the Shrew,"  where Petruchio's horse is said to be  "infected with the fashions." The complaint is a common one uow, but not  among horses. ...  "Rnnncd" the Fastest.  A small boy who lives in Gorman town,  Pa., and is a memher of a Quaker family  went to visit Washington friends not long  4lgo. In VYasliiiigtoii there was a boy  iust about the ago of the young Quaker  and in time they became fast friends.  Then one .day tho ("emiantown boy  challenged the Washington hoy to a foot  ���������face, and jn much excitement-the event  took place.

The Scotch thistle is said to have been  chosen as a national flower because of  tlie part it played ia saving the country  from an attack by the Danes in 1010.

B. Warner.]'  LEFT tho t-rivin'" town  of  Last  Hope as tho risin' sun gilded tlie  tree-tops and tho birds had begun  ���������to sing their, songs, and as I rode  toward Mount Misery  my  heart 'was  ��������� light and my spcerits wa's gay.    I had  figured up and found I  had much to,  rejoice over���������namely':  ���������   First.���������I    -was    a   pilgrim,   travelin'  about  and 'speakin'  words   of.conso-  lashun.and cheer and 'makin' tlie world  better.  Second.���������I had ra tintype outfit and  'business was good.    _      ti     t  Third.���������"My^ pain alleviator, --at 2 shil-  lin's a bottle, was a boon to suffcrm*  humanity,- while my certain cure^for  asthma had aided tons of thousands to  get 'their lost' breath back'.  Fourth.���������My oldrhoss was good for a  2:40 clip in "a scrub race any day in the  - week, and my fightin' dog had a sure  thing nine times out of ten.'  - As .1, thought of all these blessin's  and realized that members of the beef  trust might be suflorin' for the' actual  necessities   of life  I  broke  into  song  "We are  strivin'  to. be livin'  examples of virtue in the-sight of m  but there are occasions when  "Occasions like the present." I said,  "when we'might indulge in a game of  poker and the .world be none the worse  for it. Is that what you was tryin' to  git around to, feller toiler?"'   ,  "Yea, it was, and may I take it that  you are in aecdrd with me?"  "You may., In other words, my  speerit flies out to greet your'n."  The old man was tickled all over,  and I saw the ��������� light of craft and  avarice in his eyes as we got down  and spread a blanket on the grass.*  There was no question but that he  took mo for a tenderfoot*and intended  to wax fat on my ducats.,  "How noble is -Natur' at' homo!" 'he  said as we made* a dollar jack pot.  And he shufiied the cards and looked  a way over the prairie. _,  '  "She is truly pu," I replied as I  watched his fingers, "arid therein lies  the sadness of man's wickedness. With  t  such (a   mother    as    Natur'   mankind  ought, to harbor no evil in h'3 so _L",  "Aii-um,"  he  sighed as we cut for  'deal and I got it.   ������������������        '  "Ah-um." I replied as I dealt off the'  cards and found'I had two pairs wait-  in' for me.. - Q       '  He drew three and did not help his  pair, and I took in the' pot.    After that  he said lilt le.    Down in our heart of  hearts  Ave   wished   virtue  to  triumph  -over vice in every nook and corner of  the   land,   but  when   you   are  playin'  poker it is better to 'think -than to talk.  The venerable old pilgrim lured me on  b3r lettin' me win the first four'or" five  pots,' but when the time came that he  found three jacks in his' hand and $5  in the pot he set out to'work my downfall.   I had two pairs and'went in, and  with   a  guileless   expression  on   each  .countenance we "saw and raised until  the   sum   amounted' to  f-i-O.    Then   I  grew' weary and called to be scooped,  and-when I realized'that I .had been  shorn I precipitated myself upon  him  and clutched his' throat in an effort to  make him cough up.   'Tis not the, game  itself,-but the results, that produce evil.  The struggle was brief, but fierce.'    I  blacked one eye for the venerable man,  but he blacked .two for me in return.  I inflicted a scratch on his cheek, but  he bit my ear till his teeth met in the  flesh.                ���������.      ,    ���������  When he had made me, holler for  mercy and let up. I limped over to my  wagon and climbed upon it' and rode'  off, and when I'had left him behind he  mounted his ' mule and pursued Jiis  way. I do not think he went to camp  nieetin', while on my side my happy  speerits were no longer bqundin'. We  had descended to wickedness, arid  wickedness leaves its sting behind.-  '   - -   ��������� M.

One was whistling  vigorously so close to the ear of the other that the other cast frequent glances  of annoyance in the direction' from  which the sound came and shrugged  his shoulders with evident discomfort..  For a long while.the whistler exercised  his* whistle without restraint, appearing not to notice the annoyed glances  directed toward , him. <AVhen he had  finished ;off "Rip Van Winkle Was a  Lucky Man" with'shrill, exultant bravado, he turned upon his neighbor and  said:  , ", ���������>  .

THE STKUGGIjE WAS BRIEF,  BUT FIERCE.  and felt so good naturcd that I would  have paid double admission fee to a  circus and taken a back seat besides.  In the midst of my rejoicin' I met an  old man on a mule. He w<is a venerable old critter, with long, y all or whiskers and milky eyes, but I thought I  ���������saw guile in him while he was yet ten  rods away. I did not pass him by oa  this account,- however. As we met I  stopped my outfit and said:  '���������Hail,' feller pilgrim, and may it be  .well with thee."  "Hail to thee," he replied, "and I  may say that I have nuthin' in per-  ' tickler to complain about, thougji I  could -wish that the world was less  .wicked. It's a ���������M'cadful thing to feel  that nine-tenths of your feller critters  are travelin' the broad road that leads  down to perdition."  "Yea, 'tis truly so.   May 1 ask if you  have a mission on this airth?"  "You may."  "Is it to make mankind better?"  "That's it to a dot, and I've been at  it these twenty years.   Mebbe you are  in the same line?"  "Exactly. ��������� I'm sympathizin', con-  dolin', advisin' and .'arousin', and I  sort of calkerlate I've been of more or  less help to about a million people.  I'm carryin' a few things as a side  line, as you may have observed, but it  is only to divert my mind when the  wickedness of the world makes mo  too melancholy. Whither goest thou  on thy mule this day?"  "To tho camp meotin' at Dog Creek."  he replied as he' fondled his whiskers  in a lovin' way. "Yea, I go to help in  the fight ag'in evil, and I shall gird on  my armor and strike for the right.  Mebbe I' could indoocc you to come  along?" .    '  "Not skasslyi thankee, as I have  three or four dates ahead, but 1 shall  be present in the speerit and wish you  well."  I was gatherin' up the linos to drive  on,, thinkin' there was no more to be  said, when the venerable pilgrim raised  his hand in gentle protest and said:  "I take it that we both have the interests of our feller critters at heart?"  "We surely do," I answered.  "We   would   make  any   sacrifice   to  see the world become better?"  "You bet!"  Declined   Wit���������  Thanks.  i.

if tlie farmers of Canada were acquainted with the souiccs of supply of trieir root crop seeds, and
the avenues through; * which 'they
pass before reaching them, they
would- be a great deal more particular when making their .purchases.
Practically ' all  the    seeci for -  our
z-bot crops is grown imforeign.countries. -,   However'important     it inay
be that the seed-for such crops     be
grown   in  the  country   where    it     is
wanted'.for sowing,   the'cheap  labor
in     those European countries, .which
have become the seed gardens  of the,
world,     has ,made  the  seed  growing'
industry    unprofitable   , to Canadian
farmers or seed specialists.      -   *
,   Our'supply of foreign grown seeds
is. 'bought'and   imported ��� principally
by   oui\   larger seed firms. They may
make their purchases either by paying

For' instance,   an  ideal  turnip,      is,

-but -  a "slight,,    indication    of  their
real  value.".   The  competition"    ~ha<s
been, and is too largely   confined   to
prices- - "alone.      Farmers      continue
to  patronize the  local    dealer   ' who
is able ' to   quote   a--   low price 'for*

IV is,, well to mention, however,
that through the progressive spirit
of some reliable seed houses a limited trade of the best stocks of root
crops 'seeds has been .fostered, and
there is little difficulty experienced
among intelligent farmers, in getting the best, quality of seeds
provided they go the right way
about it, and willing to-pay a commensurate price But much of the
root crop seeds sold in, Canada are retailed to the far-'
mcr at a price quite as low as
our Canadian seed houses ha"e
to Pay reputed European seed
growers for the best seed-' from
selected    ��� pedigreed stock.
Appeals rhavc  been made,   both by
seedsmen    and farmers, to place such
restrictions     on'the     seed trade    as
will     serve  to     withdraw      the     responsibility       connected     therewith,
from   the   hands  of      incompetent lo-
ers.    "With  root crop , seeds,
may be     reached   by       al-
. lowing-     only   reliable     seed    bouses
or seed importers the right   to placo
such goods on  the     market;     by al->
lowing   * theni  to     place     goods     in
sealed     packages,   each  package     to
be     properly     labelled,   and   to bear
the   name     and     consequently '   the
reputation        of  the seed  house;     in
tbe hands of local dealers to be sold
on  commission  only.      Ofiicial        interference  in  the  seed     tra.de      may
have    objectionable features.        Perhaps     the  most     striking     example
of     where ���  legislation has  been  applied to  improve the conditions   under  which     commercial     seeds      are
���sold,     is   in     the L   State    of ��� Maine,
where ?A1  seeds sold      must     be accompanied      with    '    a       statement,
showing      the  percentage     of     pure
and  vital     seeds.     They have       extended to their seed, trade     a   modification'    of the     act which     is,used
in Canada    to regulate,    the,   quantity     of commercial     fertilizers, and
the      results     have  clearly     demonstrated     that,   whatever evils      may
accompany an     enforced     guarantee
