I know a successful farmer  who says he always endeavors to-raise' what'  others do not; then he is less   troubled  by '  competition.    Never expect to make a quick  fortune on a crop you are unfamiliar   with -  because the price happened to be high   last  year.    Ten chances to one the crop; will sell-  below the average by the time yours  is*, in  the market.    When the  pendulum   swings -  to one side it returns as far   to   the  other.  Learn to do something well and - then  stick  toil till success ia gained. .' Don't  be - the  proverbial rolling stone.

Do whatever you have agreed to  do even if it costs yon a little loss. The  ���������world is in constant need of men who can  be depended upon to do whatever they undertake. The best customers are those who  like to stick to a dealer as long as they are  well used. Strive to secure such by using  them as well as you know how, and don't  imagine you know so much now that you  ���������an't learn any more.  A. W. Cheevek.  CLOTHING AT VICTORIA PRICES.

Had tlio bracing air'of Llandudno  put such a ravenous edge on my appetite?  It was hardly ^that, tor breakfast and  lunch had no corresponding attractions.  They wero simply scampered through as  necessary formalities. -Was it, .then, that"  tho entrees were so excellent, tho wincs.so  choice, tho liqueurs so piquant, tho conversation so sparkling?  I asked myself these questions as I stood  looking down into the placid waters which  softly lapped the tall  black pillars of  tho  , pier. ? Then I turned on my hcelcand lor  answer laughed' a. mocking negative to'  thorn all. .  "I have seen her nt table d'hote every  (night for a week," I soliloquized, and I  beliovo I laughed again, and went all hot.  Can" you gueess why? Somehow I fancy  you can, and that you are laughing at mo.  How lovely' how divine, a creature she  was, or at any rato how lovely she seemed  to me, I cannot tell you in cold, print. I  -, should only mako myself foolish in the attempt. Let me ask you to take her beauty  for granted���������the rich black hair, the large,  lustrous brown eyes, tho rose tint of her  cheek, tho glorious���������but hero I am run-  ���������ning into raptures. Let mo simply, set  down onco and'for all that, as Christina's  lover says in Browning: *  She should never have looked at me ,  1U sho meant I should not love her.  For' a week, as I havo said, I gazed at  hor where sho' sat, near tho corner at tho  far end of the table. And, meanwhile I  -sipped my wine, and now- and then remembered that I might as well cat something.  The buzz of conversation-was lost upon  me.. I took no heed of aught save her fair  face. . I was - as ono entranced. It* somo  one asked mo to pass tho mustard, I found  myself replying, "No'thank you, "or if  tho waiter murmured, ."Claret or 'ock,  sir," I absently rejoined, "A few potatoes, please."  It was a bad case���������a very bad case���������and  toward the end of the week I began to  realizo where I was drifting. So for the  first timo I deigned to speak to my right  hand neighbor, a spry young fellow who  had an air of knowing everybody and everything. I startled him out of his omnis-  cienco when I spo^c, for I think he had  wagered 50 to 1 that I couldn't utter a  dozen words consecutively, but he recovered readily from tho shock, and we prat-  tlod awhilo concerning various matters.  I didn't want to broach tho subject nearest my heart too quickly, and we had got  as far as tho sweets ere 1 said,' '"Who is the  lady at the top corner yonder?"  - "The brown oyed lass with tho sheeny  locks?" ho rejoined.  I could have kicked him for his irreverence.  "Yes."  "Oh, that Mrs.���������Mrs.���������ah, yes, Mrs.  Faulkner."  "Oh.

Anon I was pacing the pier, and right at  the end in the darkest, loneliest corner I  could find I sat mo down. I smoked lour  cigars in half an hour, and all I said was  ������������������.    But 1 kept repeating it.  It was very late when I returned to the  hotel, and in tho morning "I rose betimes  and was off on my bicyclo for a day  awheel in the Conway valley. I am afraid  I scorched terribly at times. "I must get  this fever out of mo somehow," I-mutter-,  ed, und so 1 rodo hard tho day through and  toward ovening was near Conway on my  . return, going as keenly as over. -Could it  bo that I was hurrying to bo back in time  for that dinner gong?  Suddenly I looked up and saw before nie  tho figure, the face, which had haunted' me  all day. Slip was standing by tho roadside  holding her machine. 1 leaped off mine,  .discerning her plight.  "Can you oblige me?" she said in a  voice that tingled in my,ears. "1 am so  sorry to bother you, but I loft my pump  behind, very foolishly."  "1 am delighted to bo of assistance," I  replied, starting to repair and inflate the  tiro. Would only that the other hail been  punctured I 'The job was too soon accomplished."'  '���������You- are staying  at   the   -hotel,  aren't you?'she queried as sho  got ready  to remount.    "1 have seen you at dinner  -  fOU  gayly.  And I laughed gayly, too, as  a capital joke.  ��������� ������ ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� *  She sat next me at dinner that night,  and I did not glance at the top far corner  once during the whole meal. Mr. Faulkner somehow did not put in an appearance. We chatted merrily and unceasingly,  and the dapper youth, .still on my right  hand, looked at me with more ' astonishment than ever. ,  She overflowed with mirth and brightness, and I did too. Only now and again  my inner conscience would say: "You aro  K������ui_-iu_ , a. fool of  voursolf. and  you will  t ,  suffer for it.   You aro losing your Heart to  one who cannot give you her hand.

Why should 1 recall the bliss of those few  days together���������together on tho pier, together in the happy valley, ' together  laughing at the niggers, together scaling  tho slopes of the Great Or'nie? Why, .indeed, when the recollection is but pain,  and pain how lacerating, how torturing!  I was in   love, and  madly in love, and"  happy to be in love when 1 was with her.  But when I was calmer and  she was absent and the truth smote nie I could have  fled to Chu uttermost end of the earth with  very   wrath, with  very  shame.    I   felt  I  was'a villain, and  all the deeper dyed be--  cause it seemed to me I was not altogther  objectionable to her, and  that  I was becoming less and less so each time we met.'  My passion, however, only���������boiled within?  me.     I took care of that.'    I let it have no  tongue.  Her husband was away longer than she  had anticipated, but he returned one afternoon quite unexpectedly. Ho jumped out  of a broughamiwhich had brought, him  from the station just as she and I wero  entering the hotel. The heel of one of her  shoes had ccome off, and I had been compelled���������upon what delicious compulsion���������  to give her my arm. , Ho scowled at me  darkly as he espied us, and her smile was  "distinctly abashed. He greeted her with a  single snappish word and went off to his  room, not vouchsafing to be introduced.  That look of his pursued me. , 1 could  not dismiss it "from .my mind's eye? It  served only too/well to call mo to my right  senses. I saw the quagmire<-1 was stepping into. I saw jealousy and the divorce  court and scandal and misery, ahead.  So that night I did not appear at dinner. I had summoned up courage to fly.  I remembered Colonel Newcome's story'of  how sometimes the bravest thing to do is  to run away, helter skelter as fast as you  can.  And at 9 o'clock I was at Colwyn bay  ���������not far off, but far enough.  In tho smoking room of tho hotel I encountered tho dapper young gentleman of  Llandudno.  "Hello!" ho cried. "You here. You  look glum.    What's up?"  "I  always regret  to leave Llandudno,  you know," I muttered.  ���������' Why did you,  then?''  I changed the subject.   ,,  Next day I took a  train  to London.    I  deemed it best to get out of the neighborhood.    My strength was giving way even  in ono night.  Somewhat to my annoyance tho dapper  youth came with me. I wanted to be  alone���������miserable arid alone, and to think.  Ho evidently wanted to bo lively and to  talk. But I kept him tolerably quiet by  pretending to fall asleep at frequent intervals.  Near London, however, I gave in to  him, and wto chatted a little.  "Did you know Mrs. Faulkner well?"  I asked after awhile. I felt so far away  from her now that I thought I dare speak  of her. He looked puzzled at my question.  "Mrs. Faulkner, you know," I repeated,  "who was stopping at Llandudno���������the  lady with the scowling husband, the dark  whiskered gentleman."'Y  "Oh, I know who you mean! No, I  don't know them well, hardly at all���������in  fact, never saw them before in my life.  But tho scowling gentleman was not her,  husband, but her brother. Sho is a widow;  married a man, curiously enough, of tho  same name as her own. I thought I told  you.     Why, what's the matter?"  "Oh, nothing, nothing!    1 only feared  I'd lost niy ticket."  ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ���������  In a few hours I eagerly opened a telegram which I had boon awaiting in reply  to ono of my own.

HUNTING A FORTUNE.  Thomis P. Corbins lives a' mile or two  out of Hartford, on rising ground, above  a pretty tributary of-tho Connecticut. He  is an. excellent follow, and, though his  establishment is on a simple scale, because  he happens to prefer it, he has made his  pile.

It was a warm summer afternoon and  Dorothy was alone in the Iatchen, the ingredients for a sponge cake neatly laid out  before her. . The clock struck 3, and just  as it struck the electric train stopped bo-  fore the house and dropped a young man.  He was fair, his eyes blue, his mustache  lig-bt, but it was not the fairness of the  Anglo-Saxon race. In fact, Max de Resal  had only very lataly arrived in America.  Opcningthe small wicket near the larger  entrance through the high red paling, he  walked up a white pathway, shadowed by  tall trees, and took in the character of the  house he was approaching at apicturesquo  ivy covered angle.  A Lapland wolf dog, aroused from his  slumbers in an armchair on the veranda,  broke tho intense stillness that hung liko  a spell over the house, and his noisy alarm  brought a tou'sy nibp of hair to ono of the  Queen Anne windows in the roof. Max  felt he was expected to oxplain himself  and said interrogatively: "Mr. Corbins,"  but the maid, seemingly misunderstanding him, waved him around to tho kitchen.  "Let us find the kitchen, then," ho said  hear of this,  wasting  my  to himself, "but Pierre shall  sending mo to such a place,  time."  A little farther on a door was open, with  a screen drawn across it inside, and Max,  without any ceremony, walked  in.    The  Oh, shall we be in time for dinner, do you  think?"  1 rather liko tho"we." It seemed to  imply that 1 need not raise my hat and  clear off. So I mounted and rode beside  her.  "We can just manage it, I fancy,"  quoth I, looking at the time���������"that is, if  youride a little quicker."  . .rv^..M������f -_...  A Case Where I$*_ora_ce Was Bliss.  "One of the saddest incidents connected  frith my services here in many years," said  an old county prison inspector,."was in  connection with the hanging of a murderer. I believed at the timeof the execution,  and I still believe, that ho was insano  when he committed the crime for which  he suffered death. He was supposed to be  an unmarried man, and no ono suspected  that in reality he had a legitimate child  whoso mother had lived but a short period  after its birth. It was on the third day  preceding the execution that the prisoner  sent for me. I had been doing what I  could to prepare him for the end, and ho  said, he wanted to tell me a secret and ask  a favor. Then ho revealed the fact that he  had a daughter grown to womanhood, that  she did not know ho was her father a:ul  that ho would like to see her before ho  suffered tho penalty imposed by law.  "I argued with him that it was  bettor  that she remain in ignorance of  her par-  ��������� .-ihutters wero half closed to keep out the  light and flies, but he distinguished a  woman's figure. ������������������  "I  have an  introduction for  Mr. Corbins," ho said, addressing her.   -  Miss Corbins took the envelope from his  hand, pulled out the card it contained,  and, to the horror of Max, calmly road it:  "The Marquis do St. Cybars begged to  remind Mr. Corbins of their acquaintance--  ship, aiid to introduce his groat friend tho  Vicomto do Resal, who was traveling in  America for a few months."  W'hilc Dorothy read tho letter, Max, bo-  coming accustomed to the dim light, was  making up his mind that the beauty of  American cooks was quite as uncommon  as their manners, and Dorothy was turning over in her mind schemes for baffling  this would be fortune hunter. Sho spoke  Fi'cnch fairly, and her next speech was in  that language.  "So it's not on business you want to see  Mr. Corbins?"  Up went Max's hands as if words were  inadequate to express his amazement.  "She speaks French too," ho cried.  "Mademoiselle, in.my country I should  think you a disguised princess. But here  I have sworn that, after all tho strange  things I have seen in the last month, nothing shall astonish me. Still I must confess I think Mr. Corbins'cook breaks the  record, as you say. Yes, if I have still any  vestige of sense left, I think I may say I  only wanted to^pay- Mr. Corbins a visit of  courtesy."'  "Travelers like you," she said, a spice  of malice in her tone, "aro not very-cum-  mon in America. Frenchmen especially  don't generally visit us just for the pleasure of it."  "But," he went on, seating himself on  a pitch pino chair, "I givo you my word,  I am neither an engineer, a painter, a  writer nor a singer."  "W7ell, then," said Dorothy, using the'  egg beater vigorously. "I know what has  brought you here. You want to catch an  heiress. ,Oh, you may as well tell tho  truth to a poor servant like me.''  "When a young man wants a wife,"  said Max, "of course it's an heiress. " You  see, I'm poor myself, and what's more, in-  capablo of earning my own living, so I  must have a rich wife. But why shouldn't  a rich wife love me? I shall never marry  any'one I don't love."  "I'll toll Miss Corbins everything you've  said," she said. "But when you see her  you won't want her. She's a-monster.  Her neck is down between her .shoulders,  and as to figure���������well, she has none."  Max took from his pocket a French gold  piece. "Look here," he said, "would you  mind not mentioning my visit at all? ' I'll  go back ?to New York and not seo Mr.  Corbins. 1 wouldn't like to spend my life  with such a woman as you describe.'/  "Don't be in too great a hurry," sho  said. "If you are, you will make mistakes, as'the author of ���������Otere-Mer' did. "  "I might havo expected that," cried  Max. "You know Bourgct, then? What  a country. And to think I'm not likely  to ever see,you again!'.'  " Why not? ' You can see me tomorrow  if you find me interesting." ,  Next day ho had not to invent even tho  mildest of stratagems to carry out his purpose. For reasons of her own Dorothy  made things easy for him, and, thanks, to  an exciting baseball match in the neighborhood, he found tho house as empty as  the day before.  "Well, you've como for tho answer to  your card?" sho said. "Hero it is. Miss  Corbins wrote it before she had to go out.  You, really aro unfortunate about her.  Dut she has invited you"to dinner tomorrow "  Fie interrupted: "Just now I* am/more  interested ,in something else. You have  read Dourget, I know. Do you remember  what he said about girls in America���������I  mean girls who haven't much money, and  who are so anxious to be well edurnted;-  Chat to go on with their studios  they hire  i  theinsol\;-s out in the holidays as,servants:'  That at any rate was true, I suppose." -  " "Oh, yes," she answered; vthere was a  girl hero once .who' read Virgil and Xeno-  phon, a housemaid, but she had to go, she  was really too fond of books."  "Mademoiselle," said Max, faltering,  "Ianisure you are one of those interesting girls."    ,    ' /  "You are paying me a compliment I  don't desery.e," slfc said presently. ' "I  shall always be what I am now. And.  don't you think," she/went on, with a  charming smile, "that a good cook has  her value?" Y  Then Dorothy turned to the table arid  went on with her jelly -making. She tried  to pull the cork frpm a sherry bottle, and  tho vicomtc took it from her and drew it. ,  "This is not'the sort of work you were  intended for, "my poor child," he said.  "With your mental giftsv you oughtto do  something more suitable." But Dorothy  , only-smiled. * ,       -  Then she said, "I presume - you will accept Miss Corbins' invitation to dinner?" ,  "If I do, what good will it do for either  you or me?    1' shall  not  so much  as see  you." _   ,  "Only come,',' sho said. "You will see  me, I promise you."  An hour or so later Miss Corbins received the Vicomtc de Resal's formal acceptance of her invitation.  Before going to dinner the next day Max  made all his preparations for leaving  Hartford on the midnight train. When he  reached the house, the flaxen haired Nova  Scotian let him in and conducted him  through large folding doors to the lair of  the ������������������������������������monster."  Apparently tho room was empty, and  Max thought ho was too early. Just then,  tl:rough a -half glazed door, ho caught  sight of soft puffs of tobacco smoke and  heard the1 tones of masculine voices.  Corbins received him with tho warm  cordiality of an American, introduced him  to the minister and then said:  "I ought to have been in there to re-  coivo you, but my daughter was at all  ovents.     You know her, 1 think?"  "Miss Corbins is not in tho drawing  room," said Max.  "Is she not? Oh, then there is some  more bother or other in tho kitchen. Ah,  sir, dinners come into the world ready  made'in France. But here! Itwasjustby  the nearest shave my daughter hadn't to  cook it again tonight herself."  "Again?" said Max, bewildered and  conscious that he stood on the edgo of an  abyss.  "Oh, yes!" said Corbins. "For the past  week she has been covered up in an apron,  cooking���������for a house full of people, too.  It seems to astonish you, sir, but wait a  bit longer beforo you think you understand us. But hero is my daughter."  "Come," sho said; "dinner is ready."  She held out her hand to him as if no  ceremony of introduction wero required  between them, and, talcing his arm, led  him into tho dining room.  "Courage," sho whispered to him, her  face radiant with amusement. "Haven't  I kept my promise?"-  "Yes," siiid poor Max? "you have and  to such purpose that I don't know how to  look you or Mr. Corbins in the face.'  Max never knew how ho got through  tho dinner, and ho thanked God when  Corbins and tho minister adjourned to the  garden to smoke, frliss Corbins thought  it too cool for her in her evening dross,  but begged Max not to think of staying  with her in the drawing room if ho want-'  ed to smoke too.  He looked at her a moment, then said:  "No, thank you. I don't caro for a cigarette tonight."  "I am afraid," she said, "ycitare going  to leave us on bad terms."  "What do I caro if I am tho laughing  stock of all America?" he answered. "I  only mind being a fool in your eyes.

But, all ,tho  same, I'm proud of your mistake."  "Ah," he said, "making fun of mo  again as you did then, little as I supposed  it!"  "Oh, I don';want to hurt your feelings!" said Dorothy. "You'll forget all  about me. You will soon bo on your way  to Saratoga or the Catskills, according to  the addresses on your introductions.   You  have some left, I suppose?"  , "I have," he said, now in a whito rage.  "Here they are." And, taking them out  of his pocket, ho tore them to bits and  threw them on the carpet at her feet. She  watched him quietly, but when she spoke  her voice was a little altered.  "I can give you better ones," sho said,  then stopped suddenly. There was nothing cruel about her, and she saw tears in  his eyes. He turned away from her and,  standing at the window, looked up,at th-j  deep blue vault above.���������."Providence Telegram.
