Cleland;  song, miss Hunden; remarks - by  Rev. mr. Wilkinson; song, "Holy  City," miss M. Bennie.  The public have but lately been  favoured by hearing Miss Matthews  sing, and her efforts that evening,  quite confirmed the opinion formed  by her first appearance here as a  sweet and well-trained singer. Her  song,. Co.we.ivB Children's Home,  was beautifully rendered in a Mezzo,  soprano voice of great power and  extreme flexibility. In response to  an emphatic encore, she sang  "Daddy." All the performers were  excellent in their parts, and a very  pleasing hour was the result. The  good ladies of the church had pre<  pared delicious tea and cake, and  after this was partaken of, "God  Save the King,"  and home.  r  ������> -'    ���������' ; LOCALS.    .        |  Miss-M.

It  was an enormous specimen of that rare  and curious Bea monster the angler  fish. It measured 4 feet 3 inches long  and 3 feet 2 Inches broad. The capacity of these fish for devouring  large quantities of food is something  marvelous, but the peculiar thing la  that they change the usual order of  things, for instead of the bird catching  the fish, in this Instance the fish  catches the bird and makes a meai of  him.

The temptation to a.writer to reveal  facts under the cloak of fiction is enormous, but the danger is equally great.  There are few successful writers at the  present day who have not been accused  of "putting people in their books." To  a certain class of readers there Is an  immense piquancy added to any character who may be suspected of being  "real," and the success that an autobiographical "society novel" would  achieve is too brilliant to contemplate.  .c ^;->&j fv  ���������Y * ^    '  DC  o  A GIRL OF ORIT.

I never felt so deserted and  forlorn  -as  when  I  stood  on   the  platform at  Waterloo on the Sunday morning, waiting-for the special train ,for Southampton.    There was a great mob of people  ���������crowding and   clamoring  around   pas-  '-sengors and their'friends to see them  off���������all strangers to me. many of them  talking an uncouth, unintelligible, language..    The   porters   wore   too   much  " '-overpowered with luggage to attend to  ime, and I-had Roy to look after.  He was very  fractious, dragging at  'his chain,yelping in short, angry snaps,  ���������with fierce shows of teeth, and keeping  ������������������ every ,one at a distance. "!' cannot say  -j what I  should have' done' but "for tlie  kindness of a man. a' gentleman  who  , -spoke .with'a strong Yankee twang and  -who'found"us seats.   He persuaded the  .-guard to allow Roy to remain in the  ���������carriage.with us, and tho dog was for  .the moment, good.    I don't know twhy  . I    burdened   myself 'with -him,   but  I  clung to  him' feebly,  desperately,   for  no, other reason than that ho was Willie's, 'the only real  living link left me  with my dear missing friend.  This new acquaintance was a youth,  little more, in a straw hat and a light  -chock suit: he wore no gloves and, had  a diamond ring on one finger and a  great diamond brooch in his slipknot  .tie. He was not handsome, far from  it���������frock led face, rod hair and ferrety  eyes���������and yet there wore kindliness,  good feeling, chivalry in his face, that  many a better born gentleman might  liave envied him.  "Guess you're now to this  thing," he said affably as we  "Never been across before?"  Mother frowned at me from  tier as though   to check  this  easy to make out every one. and I soon  learned all I wanted to know.  ,t First, there was the arch impostor,  the villain who was masquerading as  my dear Willie Wood." I saw a short,  thickset, vulgar looking man. very  much overdressed, smoking a long'  cigar, holding his head high, as though  arrogance and hauteur, .were in his  part. He'was not alone; bis two companions, the onIy,.per:!'ous to whom he  spoke, were the Duke and Duchess of  Tierra Sagrada. as my -friend whispered me.  I confess I stared at them with all  my vi'va, my heart beating tnmultuous-  ly.    If I only knew   what   they ,did!  'They had been with Willie���������were'the  last to see him, probably, in the Vic-  ��������� torifs dock.. -:     , \    ,  .. T*he man. a small man, thin, twisted,  snakelike, and Venomous, was no  doubt the ringleader, one of the' prime  movers in the plot. As I looked at  his dark, sallow face, heavy, brooding,  with dull, savage, bloodshot eyes, I  trembled to think I might have to  measure strength-with him���������that I, a  weak, helpless woman, might be called  upon to unmask him, and bring him to  account. What chance' should I have  alone against these unscrupulous, murderous, coldly deliberate villains?  I  got some little comfort,  however,  from my examination 'of, the woman.  Duchess or no duchess, accomplice and  confederate or hapless tool, willing-or  constrained,   I   knew   that,.within   her'  poor   means   she   had   been    kind    to  Willie, and would have helped him if  she could.    She was not wholly bad, I  felt   sure.     A   handsome  woman,   undoubtedly; very tall, with a fine~figure  and a beautiful v face, although with a  sad,,   worn,  .anxious-, expression���������the  face  of one  who    had    known    some  trouble.    Was    she    vexed,' 'harassed,  tortured   perchance,   by   a  -past   that  was irrevocable! at present hateful and  intolerable,    which    sho    was,   powerless to mend?    There could be but little sympathy between her and hei; husband. - They   hardly   spoke    to    each  other; when they did. the man seemed  to snarl, and if she answered at all, it  was . only    in.   sullen    monosyllables.  When the false Willie Wood addressed  her,  which'he did  from  Mine to rime  with   an  air' of  easy . familiarity,   she  disdained to reply at all.    It, was clear  the    conspirators    were   not   a  happy  family.        <-  While I sat looking intently at these  people and'engrossed with very serious  thoughts. I was disturbed by f Fan-  shawe, my maid, who came, tip and  said, in a "very fretful, disappointed  tone: , ..���������.'. '  ���������'Please, Miss Frida. I'm worrited to  death   with  this tiresome dog.     Whatever made you briug him is more .than  lean say.   I can do nothing with him."  Hoy   had-been-preity good  till now.

"He's no great shakes, you'll say.  not for a British officer. Don't fit bis  fortune quite. It's a good deal to live  up to."  When the train ran into Southamp-  ���������ton and we left it for the wharf where  ���������lay the little tender that was to convey us to the big liner. Mr'. Rossiter  (my new friend's name) showed us the  ���������people he had named. Wo wore crowded now into a narrow space, and sat  ^almost iu each other's pockets.    It was  and when we got on board the tender  1 handed him over to Fa us ha we., He  had followed her very obediently from  the train to the quayside, but when  once embarked had shown (the most  unaccountable restlessness. He began  questing about the deck, dragging" Fan-  thawe after him.- for he had great  strength and. besides, he growled so  tnreaieuingly that she was forced to  give in to him. When I took him1 in  hand he displayed the same restlessness. At last, in despair, she appealed  to me.  1 again took the leash out of her,  band and tried to pacify him. As a  rule 1 could manage him. He had  taken to me long before, iu the early  days of our acquaintance, and now,  since Y\'illie was gone, he transferred  his affection, as I hoped, to me. But  now I had lost all control over him.  He would not keep quiet, still much  less crouch down at my feet. He disdained to obey. 1 tried all .ways with  him���������spoke to him softly and sweetly,  scolded him aud cuffed hi hi, but all to  no purpose.. He stood away from_me  at the longest distance his chain"would  allow, as if we were utrer strangers  and his only idea was to break entirely  away at the very tirst chance.  Then, just as our tender ran alongside tho great liner, and I was occupied with mother and all our belongings, he made one great snatch at his  chain. It slipped through my lingers  and in an instant he. was gone. He  ran forward to the bows or the tug,  and 1 could hear him raging furiously  along the dock through the throng  with loud, quite joyous yelps, as eager  as if be was' rounding up a flock of  scattered sheep on the mountain home  of his ancestors.  In tin' end I saw him crossing the  gangway at the fore part���������that put  down for the second cabin passengers.  He was thrusting his way through  them noisily, and was one of the earliest at the ladder, which he ran up. to  disappear hastily into the big ship.

In  1ST-) General Starr was in command at  ,vort Riley, and one day an orderly  came to bis quarterswith tlie message  that Lieutenant Morrison, just from  West Point.'was at the post ready to  pay his respects and report for duty.  In response to this message .the old  general was starting for bis office,  when his wife, a motherly old soul:  plucked him by, the sleeve and said,  "Now. general, promise tne that you  won't be rough with that young man."  "HoughV" said the old man. smiling  amiably upon his"matrimonial, companion. "Why, I'll, be peaches and  cream unless the young dog.riles me."  Reaching his office, the general: was  confronted with a- dapper-little fellow  as spick and span as though he had  ���������just come from the hands of his barber  and tailor, while he had the half supercilious air that seems inseparable from  the Iirst stages of military education.  ...Looking the young lieutenant ovei  for half a moment, the old general said  with great dignity: "How do you do,  Mr. Morrison. I am pleased to see  you." Then as a flush gradually mounted over his weather beaten features he  added: "I am always glad to see you  young men from the Military, academy.

Every town or village in Plumas  and Sierra counties of any pretensions had a ski club, and many of  the members were experts who had  .performed wonderful "feats, and"for  1'his race "the pick of-every'club was  on hand at the top of the glassy  slide; while" ah 'admiring-crowd of-  men, women., and ;girls looked on.  '.The curious 'Norwegian snowshoes,  ���������which 'werec 'eightt feet  long,  four  ' inches wide; and half an inch thick,  .,-,,���������, .,   .   . , ,, .     <i v/cre being given,' their' final polish,  tie window-had been, the frontdoor,   .'every-conteslant having his especial  "dope," which was, his secret.  Apart  George.had cut steps up the.burrow,  find.the Bartons, as'the postmaster  remarked,', were "in society/again.''"  The-chimney had been fpliced with  pieces kept for thej purpose, so that  the top reached cthe surface-of-the  - snow, and as  George  had   piled a  plentiful   supply   of   wood   in   the  '-'' house iri September and there was  an   abundance  of'candles,   oil'and  provisions things were as comfortable in the Barton home as'in.anv  .   house in the place 20 or more feet  under the snow. -   ��������� '���������;  But there is a skeleton in every  household, it is said, and in the Barton home it was pride and debt.  The elder Barton- bad left a mortgage on the house,.which was soon  to expire, and the mortgagee wished  the money. He lived in the city, 500  'miles distant, and did not care .for a  .-risk where;tlie'security was liable to  be crushed beneath .'30 feet of snow,  as both Plumas and Sierra counties  were '.'famous for heavy snowfalls.  George Barton had not been;able to  save  enough  money for the mortgage. Avalanches had covered the  mines and kept him from work.  Then one night1, in returning home  he could not find tho shoot and had  wandered off- and when discovered  was badly frozen. It was the custom  inythe.-village for. the miners when  going to work to plant., a staff with  a rag streamer at the entrance of  the shoots, so th-at they could find  their homes if a storm came up. But  the'wind had blown Barton's flag  down.  Then there was another trouble.  For a number of years George Barton had been.a contestant in the ski  races which are the principal amusement of the people of-these counties  of California in winter, but in every  one he had been defeated���������more,  humiliated, as twice, unable to control hi? long legs, he had at first  from" the others stood'Long Barton  'strapping on .his, skis, which had a  -polish sucli as had never been seen  before.,.- They gleamed in the sun  with dazzling' brilliance.   If "dope"  counted,- there were those who be-,  lieved that "Tanglefoot" would win.  ��������� The first signal was given, and the  men lined up, their long skis extended forward, their, bodies in various  positions.    Each racer bore a long  staff, or starter.    Some held -it on  one side, some between their legs,  while others extended it ahead, and  as  the  word   was  given  each   man  gave a mighty shove and projected  himself down the terrific slide. They  shot over the edge  like a wave of  water over a fall and seemed to rush  into   space,, then   sank   so  rapidly  from view that they were gone before the excited onlookers realized  it.   The speed'increased rapidly, and  in 10 seconds was like that of a fast  trotter, at 15  it was equal  to  the  fastest train of cars, and at 20 the  best men were holding their breath,  as it was impossible to breathe at  such speed, and the slightest swerve  would .send them off the track. From  the side  the,scene was a frightful  one^ as it was hard to believe that  human beings could preserve their  position and not be dashed to pieces  under such extreme velocity.    But  the line swept on, a few of the racers  surging ahead.  Half way down, and  four are in advance,'two-thirds, and  one tall figure is leading.  It is Long Barton. He is rushing  with the speed of light. The new  "dope"'is carrying him on to victory. He knew it; his teeth were set;  his heart was in his mouth���������the  goal was just ahead. Then something happened. He swerved a  tenth of an inch; a piece of ice  caught the channel of his polished  ski, perhaps, and the next second  the line,, of: racers rushed like the  wind by a 'figure rolling over and  over, its legs, arms and long skis  seemingly tangled in a hopeless  knot. ."Tanglefoot" had lost again,  and the loud laughter and gibes of  the spectators rang, in his ,ears as,.  half stunned, he-slid, to the bottom  and picked himself up.' To their  'credit,' the''Winners did 'not laughi  It was the crowd on -the hill, and  Barton-took off his skis and,, avoiding them, walked over the snow and  was'.dost to. sight in the shoot that  led to his home. '    , ,  ,  That night, as was'the custom,  there was a ball, and at the earnest  wish of his mother1 Long Barton  went. But- he took no part in the  entertainment and sat by the stove  and watched tho ���������' merrymakers,  knowing well' that he was the butt  of* them'all. Late at night,- while  he still looked on, a.crowd gathered  at the door around a man who had  just arrived���������Reel Stacey, the,stage  driver. .      *&���������������������������>>  ' -"Hope you folks' has extra splices  on'vour chimnevs and flags out,"che  said. ^'Jl's-banked .5Q feet at^Ey-^  ans, and the 30 foot marks on the  pines arc covered,''and it's snowing  like it will never -stop. ' But that's  iiot what I come for," he continued,  unrolling a bundle, blanket., after-  blanket, and producing a. baby that  looked up at the-men-with a wondering gaze".   . i   .    i  _"A baby I" they shouted in chorus,  and half,"a dozen .arms-reached for  tlic;child.      ��������� -���������   i-    v   ���������- -, ,    '  '"Hold on,'boys," said the driver;,  "business first.   "This, is Jim, Gray-,  son's baby. His wife died last night,  and'lhe's flat on his back.   Tlie cow.  was killed in the! snow, and there  ain't any milk   in this town but  this,"--and the old driver held-.up a  quart   bottle.    "Now,   the   doctor,  says that the only thing to save the  baby is to get.it out ��������� where there's  milk.   If we don't, it will starve."  ��������� "Why, Reel,".said the,storekeeper^  in an awed whisper, s"it's death to  try the mountains-in such a storm!"  "So I told .the doctor,"'replied-  the stage driver, ."and I haven't the  nerve to try it.'.*' Lknow what it-is���������  a- man's life against the kid's. But  I Baid I'd state the case: He's a ncw-  .comer at Sierra*. He-got here and  can't" get away."  "It's '50 miles to milk if it's a  foot,"   remarked  a  red  'whiskered-  ' miner in the group. ��������� "Won't bread  and water do?"        ���������    ���������,  - "It might for some," retorted the  driver, "but this baby's not built  that way. She wants milk, and she  won't touch anything else. They've  been trying it for days. Is there any  man here that can suggest any-  'thing ?" And the speaker raised his  voice.' ���������  Every miner present knew that it  was imjjossible to get out of the  mountains, even if it was not snowing, until the snow had settled. Every one-recalled the names and faces  of men who had met death trying to  cross, tlie sierras in storms, and for  a few moments -no one answered.  Then, as the driver pulled the blanket over the little figure, which' he  held closer y to his breast, a voice  said :  "Well, if the baby wants milk,  she's going to have it; don't you forget it, boys." ' And Long Barton  edged through the crowd and took  the child in'his arm's. He rolled it  up in the coverings the stage driver  had taken off. Then he pulled on  his snow cap and, followed by the  men to the door, went out into the  storm.  "Well," exclaimed Reel Stacey,  "I'd have picked 'Tanglefoot' the  last one for such a proposition. But,  boys/we've mistook him: He's got  sand, for lie's going to his funeral."  What George Barton said to his  mother no one knew. Time was the  essence of this transaction, and in a  very short while he came up the  shoot clad ��������� in his furs, the baby  wrapped in a fur bag which was  slungtmder his arm. .lie.-carried his  staff in his hand, a revolver in his  pocket for wolves, and on his booted  feet were the skis ���������which the incomparable "dope", had polished so that  he could-hardly stand. A moment  iater he was lost to view.  The same dogged persistency  which had led Long Barton to believe that he could win the race made  him think that he could carry the  baby to safety. If he had been asked an hour before if a man could  do this, he would have said no. lie  strode up the little valley, keeping  in the center, with the walls of the  He knewT the trees well and for five  miles kept the trail. Then he came  to the first slope. By the aid of. his  staff he made a rapid slide, reaching  the bottom of the canyon safely in  a few seconds. And this was to.be  ��������� his experience���������climbing and sliding. The next hill was so soft that  he wa's ��������� breathing hard. ��������� when , he  reached half way. Then he felt a  tremble, a nameless thrill, and the  entire side of the mountain seemed  to give way, and he was carried irresistibly dowh-on'the wings of an avalanche. He made desperate struggles ahd<by a miracle kept near the  top'and, after much labor dug'himself out.     ','������������������'  It   had   stopped   snowing >as   he  'started down the,canyon,'now slid-,  ��������� ing, now leaping, the famous "dope"  carrying him well and'fast.   From a  deep-valley "he must climb "the next  range, but when he was'half way up  the snow began to fall again, and he  became' bewildered:    He could not  seethe stars and would have to trust  r to luck.

His Wile Aid* Kim In Rccnllin;? the  Most Striking Incidents of Kis Life,  ,   "Which  Would  Have   Covered   Over  ��������� Ten Pages but For an Accident.'  [Copyright. 1902, by C. B. Lewis.]  WHEN Mr. Bowser came home  tho other evening, he didn't  have, "that tired feeling"  to -warn 'M(rs. Bowser that  he proposed, to kick up a row over  the gas bill; but, on the contrary, he  was stepping high and swelled up with  importance. She knew in an instant  that some one had been flattering him,  and that if, she only gave him, rope  enough,he would explain all. Ue look-,  ed at her and tallied to her in a patronizing way throughout the dinner  hour, and he appeared to be on his <'  guard  against  letting   himself   down.'  ','HB was kicked in  THE STOMACH BY A  a cow."  When dinner w^s over, he lighted his  cigar and paced'back andfor'th across  V-    the' sitting'room with his head up and  ���������shoulders, squared, and the cat made  , y    up her-mind ;th'at;'he had either fallen  .   heir to a big" fortune or had discovered  that one of ��������� his^ ancestors Avas at the  '   - 'helm 'of - Noah's '"''ark   during  a   good  share ofythe. voyage. "Atjlast he .spoke.  "Mrs.   Bowser," .he   began,   "if  you  .,   . are ,not too busy .this evening. I should  '���������'     like your help for a few minutes."  -    '    -"Certainly,"'.she replied.  ������ "There was a gentleman in the office this'afternoon with'a-book entitled  'Historic Men of America.'  '"As-it has  not been issued yet, of course you have,  <        not heard of it.   Perhaps I should have"  .'    said a proposed book."  "'Well?"  "The idea is to make a book of 500  .    pages.   The lives of fifty of the most  prominent men in America are to ,be  .written up, and each will fill ten pages.,  I       It is  to  be  a  very   exclusive   work,  "' bound in gilt and morocco, and selling  for $10'per volume..   I have been selected as one of the fifty,to be written  up."  "Yes."  "And I want you to help me recall  ',.    the leading incidents of my life and  make a little sketch for the historian  to go by." ���������    ���������  "How much is it going'to cost you?"  she asked.       l  ' "I take ten of the books at $10 each.  " He would have been glad to write me  up free of cost, but of course we want  at least-ten of the books. He came all  the way from Boston to see "me, and  should I.repeat one-half the nice things  he said you would think me conceited. .Let us see what we can get up.  You know my life as well as I do myself."  Mrs. Bowser drew a long breath,  looked at him in pity, and. after a moment's thought she said:  "Well, at the age of ten years, which  is probably going bad' far enough, you  .were kicked in the stomach by a cow  ' and laid-.up for two weeks, as you havp  often related. That is the beginning  of your history."  "Woman, do "you mean to insult me?"  he exclaimed as he Hushed up.  ���������^ "Of course not   If this is to be a his-  ���������{   : torv of vou. we. must get in all the in-  i      ciderit'V   Don't the histories of Washington record the cherry tree incident?  'The" next, thing to" happen'to you was  ,when you were twelve years old; you  fell into the family cistern."  .    "Are   you   talking  in   sarcasm?"   he  asked as he glared at her.  "Not at all. Every history of every  great man goes back to bis boyhood.  Don't we read that Homer rescued a  .cat .from the jaws of a dog when he  was only four years old? All these  early incidents are supposed to have a  bearing on a man's character. Let me  see; at fourteen yon fell in love for  the first time and wanted to commit  suicide by swallowing a box of bluing because the girl played tag' with  another boy."  "By thunder, but you want to make  out that I'm an ass!" shouted Mr. Bowser as he bobbed around on his chair.  "Nothing of the sort," she smilingly  replied. "You wero making history at  a very youthful period, and it should  all go into the book. At fifteen, as 1  have often heard you say, you attended your first circus, and a camel ate  up your hut. At sixteen you fell in love  with your Aunt Margaret and wanted  ��������� her to elope with you. At seventeen"���������  "Stop!'.' thundered Mr. Bowser as he  brought his fist down on the table with  such force as to lift the cat off the  floor. "Do you suppose such, twaddle  as that is to pas=; into history? If it did.  the reader would take me for a fool."  "Well, we'll skip a few years then,"  replied Mrs. Bowser. "At the age of  twenty-one }-ou rescued'a ' calf f i\ m  drowning. If was a very heroic action on your part. A few mouths later  you challenged a young man to fight  a duel because he called your sweetheart redheaded, and it was not your  fault that he failed to be on,the ground.  At the age of tw_euty-two lightning  struck a neighbor's :barn, and but for  yoa a mule would have perished in the  names.    A year later"��������� ; ,  "Hold ,oni"   he'"hoarsely  whispered.^  "Hold on where you are!   I might have  known how filings' would come out.   If  you  insuit  me  further.   I   may Torget  that,you are my wife!"      ��������� ,  "But who has insulted you? ,i������ you  are going to make upften pages of history, you will have to ,make use of-all  the incidents happening in,your lii'e.  What has happened to you in the-hu/.t  twenty years, for.instance? You feli'in  love with and married, me. you bought  a hog, you bought a cow, you bought  -chickens, you bought'lire escapes ai.d  spring tomes and root beer and runaway horses and a bike, and you"��������� -  , "Madam,,go up'to'your room!" said  ilr.

"Go up���������go!" ;'r '.; ..^  "At the age, of twenty-three" you  wanted to hang' yourself in tho .cow-  shod because"��������� ' , , ' >  "I say go!"

She Jeft'Mr/Bow-  <ser .pacing _up an'd dowy/rand the ends  of his hair' curling and snapping, but  she had'' scarcely-* reached" her' room  when the doorbell rang. .The historian  ,had",come to see Mr. Bowser, about a  Cull length"portrait for the book. The  j historian had1 stopped-at five pr six'sa-  Moons.on.tho way, and he had'arrived  with wheels in his head. Hehad only  got seated rin the back 'parlor when  those wheels began to go round, ���������ianc":  he looked at Mr. Bowser in a helpless  way and asked: -  "Are   you   Mr.   Bowsbcr" or-���������or   the  other feller?,   If you are Mr. Bowsher,  I  don't -want  to shay  nozziiig���������not  a  word���������but if you are .the other feller"���������  ������   "Well?"

T\e farmers are' the horse producers, and yet very few"of tbenv '.are  familiar with market standards and  classes' Their knowledge .of the. de;  nmnds of the, market, is vague ��������� and  indefinite and it' .is- not surprising  that 40 per cent, of 'the horses that  reach the "market belong.'to no particular class. The great danger to  tho'horse' industry lies in this, lack  of knowledge of standards, and thb^  tendency'-to '.indiscriminate   breeding.,  The market classes of. horses are  distinct; .they' are hot classified- according to, color, breed or degree of  soundness as many think, bufr according-'to conformation,- weight, and  style, faiid "tho animal's fitness, to do  a "particular'kind of work, or fill > a  particular purpose. These market  classes do not run fro.m one immediately into another. .There, are wide  gaps between them. For instance, a  horse which is too light to go in the  draft class, docs not necessarily drop  into the class which most nearly approaches It. To be just a little light i  for'the draft class may mean that",  the, animal belongs to no particular;  class. ���������  There is no such a thing as a gen-:  eral purpose class in the market. *  The horsy must be something, or he  is nothing; .that is, he must be a  class horse' suited to a special purpose,'or a misfit. The general purpose horse is not heavy enough for  the best' furm ' work; he is not a  coach, carriage,'or saddle horse and  consequently is a cheap unclassed  horse.  i:anpberry Irninlnsr for the Amateur...

In the spring the ends were cut  back far enough to prevent the fruit  getting dirty, and nothing more was  done until after picking, when the  old wood was cut away and loosened  from the posts and the new wood fastened in place,' it having previously  grown at will. A plantation kept in  this way had tho rows snug and narrow until, nearly picking time, when  the new growth would sprawl somewhat, as shown in lower figure; but,  as cultivation was stopped , during  July, this'did not matter.

' j  Dean Hoffman was noted for charitable impulses, which liis large income  allowed him to indulge in. Some years  ago the dean" invested heavily in land  in a small southern' town which was  then enjoying a "boom" period: Among  the dean's other investments was a^  beautiful little hotel, exquisitely appointed and perfect in every 'detail.  After awhile t'he "boomV fell through,  and tho little hotel became a losing investment.    ,  At this time' the' chancellor of, the  University of the.South, an old friend  of Dean Hoffman.'was on a hunting  trip witii him in the mountains of  North Carolina.    ,.,.,. .  " "Wo are badly,invneed*of a dormitory  down at Suwanee," said the chancellor. -    ��������� .      ' ��������� ,    .      .  "Yes." said Hoffman and sat thinking for a moment. "Well, you can have  the hotel building down'at B ." naming the town. "You can take it to  pieces and move it to Suwanee. It  ought to make a pretty little dormitory."  ,   The chancellor was greatly pleased  and   made   all   tho   arrangements   to  .move the hotel, when, to his astenish-  ' ment. the citizens of the town obtained  ������������������j an  injunction,,,against  its removal on  the grounds that the hotel  in a way  was   puhMc  property   and, that io^ remove it would leave the town without  an.V. hotel   accommodations.    A   legal  fight followed', but the university won'  out i:i tho end.    So the University of  the,South revels, in the luxury of the  most unique dormitory in the world.  The Home of tlie Kindergarten.  Tho Japanese have the most perfect  kindergarten system in the world.

The little ones  of .Japan even become somewhat interested in mathematics by seeing and  fooling what a pretty thing a cono. a  sphere or a cylinder is 'when cut out  of wood with a .',-Jthe.
