J  From tho time,that Aslang was'quite  grown' up  there  was   no  longer  any  , peace or quiet at Husaby^   In/fact^all  the handsomest young fellows in the  ,  village did nothing but fighjt and .quar-  ��������� - ���������rel night after night, and it was always  1     worse on  Saturday,, nights.    Aslang's  <   -'father, old'Canute Husaby, never went  <'   to bed on those nights,without keeping  on' at least his leather breeches and lay-  ing a good stout birch stick on the, bed'  '-beside him.    "If I have-such a pretty  "'daughter,", said old'Canute,' "I must  .'   know h'ow'tOj.take care of her."  ��������� Thor %'esset was only- tlie 'son of a  poor cottager, and yet folks said that It  was he who went bftenest to visit the  *' farmer's ^daughter, ��������� at ."Husaby.     Of  ''course; old .Canute was not pleased to  ���������- - * hear, this.'.   He said it- was. not ,true;  , tli'at, at "any ra'te, he had never seen  himthere. 'Still, they'-smiled and whis-  '    pered to each other*that if he only had.  **   thoroughly^searched the hayloft, whith-"  -    er  Aslang   had ��������� many  an  errand,' tie  \. .would;have found Thor there.", '*    \ '  ,  Spring earner and Aslang went up the  mountain  with the cattle."' And-now,  .'-when,the heat "of the day hung oyer  *  the valley, the.rocks rose cool and clear  through tbe'sun's misty rays, the ,cow  bells tinlded/tiie shepherd's dog bark-  Zed, Aslang sang her ";jodel" songs'"and  1 blew,.the cow-horn, all the young 'men  felt their-hearts-grow "sore and heavy  _ h as they'gazed'upon herJbeauty. 'And  ' _6n' the .first Saturday' evening one, after  * the other they crept up'the hill, but they  ^ came' down- again quicker .jtlian they  r - had,gone up,, for at tho top slood a man  twho  kept- guard,,, receiving each  one1  t" who came up with such a warm recep-  ,    tion that he all his life long remembered the words that accomp'aaied.the action,  "Come up here again-and there  will be still more in store for you!"  All the'young fellows could arrive at  ������ but one conclusion���������that there was  only one man in the whole parish who  had such fists and that man was^Thor  Nesset. All the rich farmers' daughters thought It was too bad that this  cottager's son should stand highest in  Aslang Husahy's favor.  ' Old Canute thought the same when  he heard about it all and said that It  there were no one else who could check  him he would do it himself. Now,  Canute was certainly getting on in  ' years. Still, although he was past  sixty, he often enjoyed a good wrestling match with his eldest son whenever time indoors fell heavy on his  hands.  There was but one path up to the  mountain belonging to Husaby, and it  went straight through the farm garden.  Next Saturday evening, as Thor was  on his way to the mountain, creeping  carefully across the yard, hurrying as  soon as he was well ��������� past the farm  buildings,' a man suddenly rushed at  1  him.  "What do you want with me?" asked  Thor and hit him such a blow in the  face that sparks danced before his  eyes.'  "You will soon learn that," said some  one else behind him and gave him a  great blow  in the back of his neck.  '   That was Aslang's brother'.  "And here's the hired man," said old  Canute and attacked him also.  The greater the danger the greater  was Thor's strength,    lie was supple  ��������� as a willow and hit out right manfully. He dived and he. ducked. Whenever a blow fell "it missed him, and  when none expected it he would deal a  good one. Ho stooped down, he sprang  on One side, but for all that he got a  terrible thrashing. Old Canute said  afterward. that he had never fought  with a;braver fellow.- They kept it up  till blood began To flow. Then Canute  cried out, "Stop!" Then be added in a  croaking tone, "If you can.get up here  next Saturday, in spite of Canute Husaby and his men, the girl shall be  yours."  Thor dragged himself home as best  he could and when he-reached the cottage went straight to bed. There was  a great deal of talk about the fight up  on Husaby hill, but every one said,  "Why did he go there?" Only one  person did not say so, and that was  Aslang. She had been expecting Thor  that Saturday evening, but when she  heard what bad happened between him  and her father she sat down and cried  bitterly and said to herself, "If I may  not have Thor, I shall never have a  happy day again in this world."  Thor stayed in his,, bed all.Sunday,  and when Monday came he felt he must  stay on where he,was., Tuesday came,  and it was a lovely day. The hills looked so fresh and green.    The window  . was open, sweet odors were wafted in.  the" cowbells   were   tinkling ' on- the  mountain, and far up above "some but  was-"jodling."    Truly.'if  it  had   no.  been for his mother, who was sitting  In   the   room,   he   could   have   cried  Wednesday came..and still he stayed iu  bed.    On Thursday, though,'he hen an  to think about the possibility* of beinj  wen again   by. Saturday,-. and   Friday  found him on his legs again.   Then he  thought of what Aslang's father' had  said, "If you can get .up to her next  Saturday without being stopped by Call ute, and  his  men.  the girl  shall  be  yours."   Over'and over again he looked  up at Husaby farm., "I-shall never see'  another Christmas," thought Thor.  As before mentioned, there was buto  ono path up to Husaby (hill, but surely  any stnmg, able .fellow must be able to  get to ,it,. even though the direct way  'were barred to'him.    For instance, .if  he were to row round the point-yonder  and fasten ,his boat at the one side,;it"  might( he' possible'' to climb  up' the're,'  although it was so very'steep that tho  goats r had great difficulty in'climbing  it. .and they are not usually afraid of  mountain .work.-   ,    > * "   cv'    ��������� '-       '' r  -S'.turdny rea'm6. and.

He looked upward.,'AIL was-  quiet. , He'looked oyer toward Husaby  farm, and then be'jumped into'his*boat  and rowed away round the point.   >    ,  Aslang sat before the hut.   Her "day's  work .was done. She was thinking Thor  would i not come that evening arid that  therefore many others might come, instead, so she unfastened the dog and  -without saying anything walked'-far-  ther "on. - She sat down'%so\ that she  could ,seo  across the   valley,  but the  mist" was rising there and  prevented  her   looking   down.     Then .she  chose  another   place^ and 'without/Ainking  more about it sati(lown/so,'.tIiat she  looked toward-the side where lay the"  fiord.    It seemed to bring peace<to her  souL when  she' could  gaze  far away  'across the water. ���������" - . : : *     -' - -"'/���������,  \ As she slit.there the fancy struck her  that she was inclined to sing, so she'  chose' a song with long drawn notes,  and' far and wide it sounded through  "the mountains.   She liked to' hear Jior-  self singing.-so'she began over again,  when tho first verse was ended. _ But  when she had, sung the second it seemed to her as though some one answered  from far down below.   "Dear me, what  can  that  be?"  thought  Aslang.    She  stepped forward to the edge aud twined   lier arms, around  a slender  birch  Atlantic.

DEHORNING-CATTLE.  Speed of One Ocean Current.  ,j Some -time ago the figurehead of a  ship was picked up near a .little island  off the, coast of Western Australia,  which, from tbe course it was pursuing  when 'found 'had evidently only just  arrived there. It was identified as belonging to a vessel tbat had been burned at sea near Cape Elorn, at a point  just (5.000 miles away, two years and a  half before/' The mean rate at which  the figurehead had traveled was therefore about six miles and a���������half a day,  and this may be taken as being the  speed of the particular current which"  had borne it along.'',   '  which hung trembling over tho precipice and looked down. But she could  see nothing. The fiord lay there calm  and at rest. Not a single bird .skimmed  the water. So Aslaug sat herself down  again, and ..'gain she began to sing.  Once more came the answering voice in  the same tones and nearer than the  first time. ' "That sound was no echo,  whatever it may be." Aslang jumped  to her feet and again leaned over the  cliff, and there, down below, at th<|foot  of the rocky wall, she saw a boat fastened. It looked like a tiny nutshell,  for it was very far down. She looked  again and saw a fur cap and under it  the figure of a man climbing up the  steep and barren cliff.  "Who can it be?" Aslang asked herself, and, letting go the birch, she stopped back. She dared not answer her  own question, but well she knew who  it was. She flung herself down on the  greensward, seizing the grass with both  hands, as though it were she who dared  not loose her hold for fear of falling.  But the grass came up by tho roots.  She screamed aloud and dug her hands-  'deeper and deeper into the soil. She  prayed to God to help him, but then it  struck her that this feat of Thor's  would be called "tempting Providence,"  and therefore he could not expect help  from above.  "Only   just   this   one!"   she   prayed.  "Hear  my prayer just this one time  find  help him!"    Then she threw  hoi  arms round the dog. as though it were  Thor whom she was clasping., and rolled herself on the grass beside.it. (,  The time seemed to .her quite endless.  Suddenly   the   dog   began   to   baric.  "Bow  wow!"  said  he to Aslang and  jumped   upon' her.  and  again.  "Wow.  wow!"   Then beer the edge of the cliff  a  coarse,  round  cape came to view,  and���������Thor was in her arms!  He lay there a whole minute, and  neither of them was capable of uttering a.syllable, and when they did begin  to talk there was' neither sense nor  reason in anything they said.  But when old Canute Husaby heard  of it be uttered a remark which had  both sense and reason. Bringing his  fist down on the table with a tremendous crash. "The lad deserves her!" he  cried.   "The girl shall be his!"  It used to. be thought that rapid filling of the silo' was all important.   It  must be filled so fast that no layer of  fodder could wilt'before it was covered  with another, and thus the fermentation, ^beginning' at the bottom,  must  gradually, work up through the' mass'  until it-reached tlie surface, where oxidization or "rotting* began, which again  worked, downward ".until the- decayed  matter on the; surface prevented any  more air'from going.down,- says'American 'Cultivator.    Naturally we accept-  ed1' this idea, as it ,was sent' out by  learned  chemists and  scientific  men,  but, opinions have' cnanged since those  days in.the light of positive facts. 'The  .farmers who have, not been able to fill  their silos as rapidly as they wished to'  or have been obliged .to wait f or jhelp,  for weather or for some' later field to  attain maturity or those who from lack  of' facilities for  rapid handling / have  been obliged to "fill slowly' nave found  -their -ensilage was :ih* no way inferior  to that which' was%ii~put' in practically  ���������at one time or without pause excepting  for the ^night's rest., '"And some have  learned that it does not injure it if a  part of the water iu It dries out before  it is cut.

Either of these causes may  make fodder so'dry that it will be benefited by a wetting before it is pressed  into the silo.  Fodder Versa* Silage.  At New Jersey experiment station in  1897 it was proved that, while the cost  of harvesting, storing and preparing  for food the dry matter contained iu  corn was greater per unit of dry matter In the form of silage than in the  form of dried,fodder, the feeding value  of the former was much greater than  that of the latter. The yield of milk  was 12.S per cent greater and the yield  of butter fat 10.4 per cent greater from  a given amount of dry matter fed in  the form of ensilage than when fed as  dried fodder. It was also found that  at 1 per cent per pound for the milk  produced by the animals the value of  the corn crop'wa** $10 greater per acre  when fed as silage rather than fodder.

Clarke in'Wool  Markets and .Sheep. To allow ca.ram  to run wild, as it were, with a bunch  of ewes without regard to or consideration for proper mating is wrong and is  not conducive to the raising^ of the  standard ,of our flocks. - Where the  ram is allowed to run with the flock  during the coupling season he should  be given a feed of grain daily. Ho  should also be riddled on the breast  and well back between the fore legs  with a mixt'-'-e of oil and lampblack.  This will show which owes have been  served by him.. When served, these  should be removed from the main  (lock and put in a lot or field, and after  the course of two weeks another ram.  riddled with a mixture of ocher and  oil. should be put with them. Any  "coming around" will then be served  and marked. Where tbe ram is somewhat inactive and easily fatigued he  should be "stood."

H.  ;Miller and, H. P. Miller, both famous  iamb growers, use silos. H. P.

I would suggest that the silage be made so as to  bo sweet, fearing that much acidity in  it would harm the lambs through the  milk.

Its paths  were strewn with gaj'ly colored sand, in  the niches of its yew tree hedge stood  white marble statues, and strange flowers of burning colors surrounded tlie  grass plats. But in the middle of th9  garden was a pond, in the center of  which was a group ������>i' fish tailed sea  gods,.who, sitting' - xapon., spouting dolphin's, were blowing thfrir shell truru-  . pets.  .:.    All the world  admired   this  garden.  : There was only one person whom itQdid  '���������not please���������this was" the king's young  :and   most beautiful   daughter.    Those  "shameless heathen gods frightened her,  land she always avoided the garden.    - -  j    Therefore the   Icing,   who   loved   his  jdaughter above all the world, sent for a  yourig  'gardener,    who    had traveled  through many lands and had seen many  'splendid'things, and commanded him to  make a new garden' in place of the   old  one.    He wished to make, a present' of it  to the princess on her birthday.  The garde tier did his best.   Pie dug  r and chopped and he planted.    Sunshine  ' and-'rain 'did their part also,   and when  the birthday camo the gardener stood at  ���������the entrance gate and held a salver on  which he offered to' the princess' the  golden keys to the garden.    Followed  by courtiers and ladies in waiting, r the  princess then made the tour of the gar"-  , den.  The heart of the king's daughter leaped within,hef for joy?' She forsook the  gravel walk nna\ sprang lightly over the  dawn, so that her court ladies had difficulty in keeping up with her.    But with  , -measured, tread and a frequent shake'of  "the head the court duenna followed tho  "frolicsome   young people. ,A nodding  rose ,t\vig had stuck in her powdered  hair as she passed. j She thought the new  "garden hideous  -   Now, the princess was nearing the spot  'where-the marble ba&in had formerly,  had a place.

And unhappily this was no empty  hearsay.  Tho princess, had long recovered from  her fright." 'She could e'at and drink,  but no word passed her lips. She had  lost tho powsr of speech.'  Physicians came to   her   side.    They  caused all tho circumstances to be  told  them,   put   their   heads   together  and  wrote long' pre-jcriptions.

Even Master Hammeilein.  the executioner, was commanded to  come. They plied their strange and  sacret remedies, but none of them could  help her.  In the meantime the poor gardener  was in a sorry plight. He had hoped for  a rich reward, and now he was lying in  chains and could behold neither sun uor  moon. But his old mother was still living in the homestead; and. she was a,  clever woman of - much experience.  When she heard what had happened to  her son. she tied up her bundle and wandered off to the king's town. When she  arrived there, she betook herself to the  ���������prison and implored the turnkey with  such moving words that he at last led  her, into the-prison. .���������'.-.-  The mother and son remained alone  together for- half an hour.

First :  she had been pricked with redhot needles by a foreign doctor. At this she had  groaned and sobbed, but not a word had  she spoken. After that she bad been  given, at the advice of an old herb doctor, the heart, brain aud tongue of a ���������  magpie, and this was also quite useless.

His chains were clanking, but he  walked erect and seemed in good spirits.  "Try your arts," .said the king, "and  if vou can euro her you shall receive the  order of the Green Crocodile and as  much gold-as you can carry."  The gardener went to the invalid's  couch, "iJi^do her sit'up, which she did  willingly, took her little white hand in  his and gazed into her tired eyes.

A   window  ' -which.had been left unfastened offered  ���������the means of ingress, and the shooting  r. had 'taken place in the sitting- room'.  Mrs..Higgins was .sure that there .had  been1 a sort of dispute before the fatal  shot was fired. _ She was sure of, her  ' husband's voice; but, as torthe other,  she was  undecided as to whether  it  was a man's or a .woman's.'. The detectives proceeded on .the theory that  a man had effected entrance with indent to plunder. . He had.no sooner got  ' into the house than he was confronted  ,by Higgins, who, thought-unarmed, was  a strong man.   He had probably called  upon the burglar to surrender "and perhaps, laid'hands on him aud had been  killed that capture might be avoided. >  " 'Thet first' suspect  arrested  was  the  hostler at .the barns of one of the hostels.   He had been seen on the street  A'STBAKO- WOMAX CALLED AT MY OFFICE.  at midnight; he was known to have a  pistol; he betrayed many signs of guilt  when arrested. I was employed in his  defense and after half an hour's talk  with him came to the conclusion that  he was guilty. He didn't admit his  guilt, but at the same time he didn't  deny it with the warmth expected of  an innocent man. It was by accident  altogether that I made a series of discoveries. This man had planned with  another to break open the passenger  depot and rob the safe. They had been  surprised while at work by a tramp,  and the hostler was afraid to talk to  me orLahy one else of the .murder case  for fear of being found out in the lesser crime. When once I had the thing  straightened out, it did not take loug  to upset the case of the police. I had  scarcely done this whoa I was upset  myself. -     '  A building contractor named Otis  came to me to make a confession. He  had reasons to, suspect that Higgins  had ruined his borne, and when there  was no longer any doubt in his mind  he had determined . to. kill the man.  He told me in detail of his going to the  house, effecting an entrance, telling  Higgins what he had done and then  shooting him. He wanted to be tried  for the shooting and believed that the  jury would acquit bim. Acting on my  advice, he went to the police with his  story and at its conclusion was put  under arrest.  I went to work on the case, but was  bowled over at the very outset Mrs.  Otis declared lu the most emphatic and  earnest way that she had never spoken  a dozen words to Higgins, her husband  had never intimated that he had the  slightest cause for jealousy of any man,  and, better than all. she could prove  tbat  from   10  night of the murder he was at home  and in bed and quite ill.   This she did  prove   by   three   witnesses.   Otis   had  told me a purely imaginary story, and  he stuck to it for several days, but at  length    turned    around    and    denied  everything.    There   were   those   who  said that be was "off" in bis head, but  he talked and acted like any saoe man  and returned to his business as soon as  "released.     ,  The police now returned to their first  theory.    The   deed' bad   surely   been  done by some one who had entered the  house  for  plunder.   After some  days  tn*������y arrested a saloon k^f ppr in a.towD  about five miles away, claiming to'hare  a straight case ��������� against him, and  the  man had  been  under arrest three or  four days when I came into the .cas-a  .again.    A young man named Salter?,  who was a student at the state normal'  school, came to my house at 10 o'clock  at night to make a confession.   He whs  the murderer of Higgins.   Higgins had  by accident got hold of some love letters' which the young man had written'  ���������and had refused to give them up for  less than ������100.   Not having the money  to pay with and  being" rendered desperate, he had gone to search the house  at night.   Sailers told of the conversation when Higginsfjcame down stairs-  how he got in,and got-out and all the  details.   I  advised   him   to  go to  the'!  poh'ce, and, as in the other case,o they  locked him up and'felt sure that they  had the right, man at last.  I was not retained by ryoung Salters,  who announced that he would make no  defense, but I set out to clear up a few  points to satisfy my own curiosity. , I  was not long in ascertaining that he  was not in love with any girl and had  never been known to write a love' let-'  ter; also that on (the night of the murder he was in a town 20 iniles awayl  Wherinthese'facts became known to the  police,   they   had   to  drop   their  case,  though   Sailers  protested   to   the  last  that he was guilty.   I had lost my keen  interest "in the matter when a strange  woman, who introduced berself as Mrs.  Haskins, called at my oflice to make-a  .confession.    She was a woman of ,40,,  good looking and intelligent and cliftm-  ,ing to be a .widow and to, reside in a  town 30 miles away.    She it was who  killed Mr.' Higgins, and ,she had with  her the pistol from which thejshot had  been fired.   The deceased, asshe claim-,  ed with many details, had wronged her'  only ' daughter' while passing  himself  off as a single man.   She had haunted  his store, but he had'dodged her.  ,She  had tried^to -_ieet him on the, street,  but he had' evaded her.    As a last resort  she' had" entered , his  house  and  made the noise that brought him down  .    . .'        ��������� o    '  stairs.  , , ���������  ' In'my.experience as a lawyer I never  heard a straighter story, but before  sending the woman to the police, as in  the other cases, I began to investigate.  The very first move proved that she  was either a monstrous liar or a bit  crazy. The lady at whose house she  claimed to have stopped had never even  heard of her. Then I discovered that  she had no daughter and that Mr. Hig-  gins could not have known her and  that he had not visited her town for  12 years. To cap the climax, she was  home on the night of the murder.  There was one more instance, and it  partook of the ridiculous at once. A  one legged man named Wells, a resident of the town, gave himself up to  the police as the murderer. He claimed to be a somnambulist and that the  deed was done while he was asleep.  He didn't think he ought to bo punished, but he wranted to be tried and acquitted. Not one true statement did  he make in all his story, and he was  told to take his leg and get out. The  hunt for the true criminal was kept up  for a year, but he was never discovered. The' police were no doubt right in  their first theory. The man entered the  house for plunder, aud. being discovered, if not attacked, h'e fired tlie fatal  shot and then escaped. It was more  than likely that he was a stranger to  the town.  You will naturally ask why those  people should have charged themselves  with a crime that they were not guilty  When one hears a number of'young  people talking together, all their names  sound pleasing, yet perhaps there is  not 'one that one would choose for daily  and' hourly use. And then when a  favorite one has been thought of care  must be taken that it is one which  sounds well in conjunction with the  surname, and also that the initials do  not form an unsuitable word. Charles  Urqubardt Barnard and Ralph Oliver  Townsen'd, for instance, are names  which sound very well in full, but to  use the initials, would ,be trying.���������Exchange. .  FACTS IN FEW LINES.

TTtltn-n "by Absorption. ,  The slow absorption of many'poisons  changes in some'more'or less modified  form the complexion, but arsenic and  amujchi'a show their effect about as  quickly as any. The popular belief  that arsenic clears'the complexion has  led many silly women to kill themselves   with ~it   in   small,   continued  .dOirC'S. '     __,_        ' \  It produces a waxy, ivorylike appearance of the skin during a certain stage  of the poisoning, but its terrible after  effects have become too' well known to  make it of common use as a cosmetic. >  ..The effects of $ ammonia upon the  complexion are directly opposite from  tiiat of arsenic. The first symptoms of  ammonia poisoning which appears  among those who work in ammonia  factories is a discoloration of-the skin  of the nose and forehead. This gradually extends over" the'face until the  complexion has a stained,t blotched and  unsightly appearance. With people  ' who take ammonia into their sj'stenis  in small'doses, as with their water  and food, these striking symptoms,do  not appear so soon. i The only effect of  lhe poison that is visible for 'a time is  a general unwh'olesomeuess and sal-  Iowncss of the complexion.

TPndSgrested   Food;  . The recurrence of, the flavor of food  for some time after eating is always  an indication, writes a physician, in a  medical journal,'that the "food is not  .being properly dig'l.-ted.' "I can taste  It," we say"after citing canned fruits  and .vegetables preserved by adding  salicylic acid or formaldehyde,, substances that'embalm food against, the  digestiverjuices as completely as they  protect" it from the "microbes of the  outer air.   And ?T;canJ'taste it" would  ', probably be the report of one .who had  made a hearty'meal j on a turkey kept  -several months .'in cold storage.' "A  man trying to live on such meat would  simply starve to"death' or die of blood  poisoning," adds the/physician.    "  He does not fail to remind us that  the ,storage Warehouse is generally a  , convenience and, a (benefit and only  when misused a source of danger. But  neither he nor'any one else could find  a good word to say for manufacturers  who put slow, poison into a food product.' The fitting punishment for them  ' would be to "give them'nothing to1 eat  ' but their own canned stuff. ,  " J      ' .  '  >   ,  Tlie Bird That Flies _*ngrest.  Mr. J.- Lancaster,' naturalist,' who  -spent five years onjthe;west coast of  Florida studying'birds .there, came to  the conclusion that of all the" feathered  ' tenants of'the air tae frigate bird-can  fly the longest,without resting.' .He has  seen one flying for a' whole' week night  and day without repose.  ' The frigate bird can feed, collect materials for its nest and even sleep on  the wing. 'Apparently its wings can  be controlled automatically, without  the power of its will, and it probably  adapts itself to<take advantage of the  upward or bearing force of the wind.  The spread of the frigate bird's wing  is great, and it can fly at a speed of  ninety-six miles an hour, without seeming to flap its wings much.     ,.  The albatross���������that "king of the high  seas," a3 it has been called���������is larger  than the frigate bird, but if it follows  a vessel for four or five days it has .to  rest on a rock or on the ship itself.
