We had planned to take lnm to school  mid make hhn a nest in the wood shed,  where lie could share uiir..luuclieoii and  be out of (be v."ay of peril. After a  pood deal of diilk-ulty nnd heavy pulling we got to tlie road nt last. The old  do*,', now blind aud helpless, sat contentedly in the -wagon while its wheels  creaked and groaned beneath liini. We  had gone but a short way in the road  when we heard the red bridge roar  under rushing "wheels and the familiar  yell of Abe.  "We'd better run," said Hope, "er  ���������we'll git swore at."  I looked about me in a panic for  ���������ome place to hide the party, but Abe  was coming fast, and there was only  time to pick, up clubs and stand our  ground.  "Here!" the man shouted as he pull-  "ed up alongside of it. "Where ye goin'  with that dog?"  "Go way!" I answered, between anger and tears, lifting my club in a  threatening n_anner.  He laughed then���������a loud guffaw that  rang in the near woods.  "What'll ye give me." he asked,  leaning forward, his elbows on his  knees���������"what'll ye give me if I don't  kill him?"  I thought  a moment.    Then  I -put  my hand in my, pocket and presently  took out, ray'jackknife ���������that treasure  Uncle  Eb  had  bought  for  me r- and  looked nt it fondly.  Then I offered it to him.  Again he laughed loudly.  "Anything else?" he demanded, while  Hope sat hugging the old dog that was  licking her hands.

There was always such a silence In the  room after the elder had sat down and  adjusted his spectacles that I could  hear the licking of the wateli he carried In the pocket of his broadcloth  waistcoat. For my own part, I know I  looked with too much longing for the  good of my soul on the great gold chain  that spanned the broad convexity of hia  stomach.  Presently I observed that a couple of  young Avoraen were looking at me and  whispering. Then suddenly I became  aware that there were sundry protuberances on my person caused by bread  and butter and doughnuts, and I felt  very miserable indeed. Now and tliea  as the elder spoke the loud, accusing  neigh of some horse, tethered to the  fence in the schoolyard, mingled with  his thunder. After the good elder had  been preaching an hour his big, fat  body seemed to swim in my tears.  When he had finished the choir saug.  Their singing was a thing that appealed to the eye as well as the ear. Uncle  Eb used-to say it was a great comfort  to see Elkenah Samson sing bass.   His  were yet "full of pleasure. Wo called  to him, and Uncle Eb knelt and touched his head. Then be lifted the dog'a  nose, looked a moment into the sightless eyes and let it fall again.  "Fred's gone," said he in a low tone  as he turned away. "Got there ahead  uv us, Willie."  Hope and I sat down by the old dog  and wept bitterly.  TO BE CONTINUED.  Stevennou's Stnrieft.  Mrs. Itolier!: Louis Stevenson has told  of tho circumstances under which certain of her husband's books were written. Stevenson and his wife were  looking over some records of trials iu  the Old I'.ailey court during 1700.  Among the papers Was one describing  tlie trial of .lames Stewart for the murder of a niau which Stevenson "read  with avidity." He used much of the  story in this old court record for "'Kidnaped," beside', "iking out the character of Alan Brecfc. "David Balfour,"  the sequel to "Kidnaped," was written in Samoa amid very "distracting  circumstances." Mrs. Stovenson says,  "With the natives on the verge of war  and amid the most kaleidoscopic political changes, uncertain as to what  moment his personal liberty might be  restrained, his every action misconstrued and resented by the white inhabitants of the island, the excitement  and fatigue of my husband's daily Ufa  might have seemed enough for any one  man to endure without the additional  strain of literary work."

Then    his    great    voice    shouted  "Clang!" the lash of his whip sang In  the air and off be went  We were first to arrive at the school-  house that morning, and when tbe  other children came we had Fred on a  comfortable bed of grass in a corner  of the wood shed. What with all the  ���������worry of that day I said my lessons  poorly and went home with a load on  my heart. Tomorrow would bo Saturday; how were we to get food and  water to the dog? They asked nt  home if we had seen old Fred, and we  both declared we had not���������the first He  that ever laid Its burden on my conscience. We both saved all our bread  and butter and doughnuts next duy,  but we had so many chores to do It was  impossible to go lo the schoolhouse  with them. So we agreed to steal  away that night when all wero asleep  and take the food from Its hiding place.  In the excitement of the day neither  ���������f us had eaten much. They thought  we were 111 and sent us to bod early.  When Hope came into my room above  stairs Into In the evening we were both  desperately hungry.. We looked at. our  store of doughnuts nnd bread and butter under my bed. We ciainled it over.  "Won't you try ono o* the doughnuts?" I whispered, hoping Unit sho  would say yes so that 1 could try ono  nlf-o, for they did smell mlgMy tf'wl.  "TwoiiWn't ho right." said sho regretfully. "There ain't any imire'n he'll  want now."  "'Twouldn't he right," I repealed,  with a sigh, at",I looked longingly ot  cno of the big doiiKhnuts. "Couldn't  bear t' doit-could you?"  "Don't seem ns if I could," she wills-  pored thoughtfully, her chin upon hot  band.  Then sbe roio and went to tho win-  iow.  "Ob, my, Low dark it it!" she Whispered, looking out into the night.  "Purty dark," I inld, "but yon  needn't bo 'fraid. I'll take cor������ o' you,  It wo ihould meet a bear I'll growl  right back at him. That's wbnt Undo  Bb tol' mo t* do.

Hansom Walker, a man of great dignity, with a bristling mustache, who  had once been a schoolmaster, led the  choir and carried tho tenor part. It  was no small privilege, after tlie elder  had announced the hymn, to see him  rise and tup the desk with his tuning  fork and hold It to his ear solemnly.  Then he would seem to press his elihi  full hard upon his throat while ho  warbled a scale. Immediately soprano,  alio, buss and tenor launched forth upon the sea of song. The purls were  like tho treacherous and conlliel.iir"  currents of a tide that tossed them  rou'.'hly and sonicdmos overturned their  craft, And Hansom Walker showed always a proper bcuai* ot danger und ie-  spnnslhillly.

A cabman  who has had any experience in the  great metropolis would not take the  risk of leaving his vehicle even for a  few minutes unless he placed a reliable man in control, but the unwary  are frequently robbed of horse and vehicle. Tbe cab thief usually drives  some distance from where he stole the  property and takes advantage of some  secluded spot or quiet street to alter  the number of the vehicle, so as to escape immediate detection. This done,  he has two ���������alternatives. He either  tries to earn a few shillings in fares  before abandoning the cab or else he  makes away with the whip, rug,, mat  and lamp, leaving the vehicle for.-the  police to take charge of when found.  Some thieves actually go to the trou  ble of stripping off from the wheels  the India rubber tires���������London Standard.  Horace Greeley and nn Antog-rnph.  In his "Recollections of a Busy Life"  Horace Greeley tells the story of how  he once dealt very effectively with a  persistent autograph hunter. A gushing youth wrote to Greeley as follows:  Dear Sir���������Among: your literary treasures  you havo doubtless preserved'several autographs of our country's late lamented  poet, Edgar Allan Poo. If so, and you  can sparo one, please inclose it to me and  receive tho thanks of yours truly,    ���������.  To which Greeley replied:  Dear Sir���������Anion-? my literary treasures  there happens to bo just one autograph of  our country's late lamented poet, Edgar  Allan Poe, It'Is a note ot hand for $50,  with my Indorsement across the back. It  cost mo exactly $50.75, Including protest,  and you may have It for half that  amount.   Yours respectfully,  HORACE GREELEY.  The autograph wns found among  Greeley's possessions after his death.  To Wim* n Com-tcrpnne,  Rub It well with soap and put It overnight In a tub of lukewarm water. Tho  next morning wash It out of tho water  It was soaked in. Then wring out ond  wash In some clean soapsuds, after  which wash It through a second suds  warmer thnn the llrst. Rinse It twice  through plenty of cold water. Tho last  rinse water should hnve a llttlo blue  lu it. Wring tho counterpane out, hang  11 lu the sun to dry wrong side out  Tnko It in toward evening, and tho next  day hang, It with tho right sldo out  It must ou no account bo put away  with the least dampness in It. Sometimes It takes threo days to dry perfectly. In washing a countorpano never uso soda.  "I wouldn't ride in an--automobile.  Why, the Circle X outlit would never  forgive me. It would be an insult to  my training. When I was a two-year-  old I was exercised in the saddle Instead of iu a baby carriage."  The girl checked herself suddenly.  "I'm afraid I've been rude, Mr; Hob-  ben," she said, with a charming air of  contrition. "Come, forgive me and explain your new automobile to me."  They walked to the curb where the  machine stood, and the girl listened attentively but with little understanding  while the man technically explained its  beauties and power.  Edith Westley was from Nevada.  Her life on her father's ranch, the Circle X, bad bred in her a love for horses  and an admiration for men who could  master them. An automobile to her  was merely a tamed locomotive, good  to amuse the idle rich.  She was a girl all men admired and  many loved. Ralph Robben, stockbroker, clubman and typical New  Yorker, was in the latter class.  He had met her at a 5 o'clock tea. He  detested 5 o'clock teas, but sbe seemed  out of place among the gossiping society women, and her breezy western  Btyle attracted him.  "Do you like these teas?" he asked.  "Come, now, that's not fair. Do I  look like a girl who would stake out a  claim in this society reservation? You  ought to give me a square deal, and I'll  reciprocate by telling you that I think  you feel as uncomfortable here as I do.  I don't seem to know the trail���������don't  feel conversationally foot sure."  u  "Will you slip away and take a gallop in the park with me?"  "Will I? Just try me."  They met frequently after that. The  result at first surprised him, but later  it seemed perfectly "natural. He fell in  love with her.  -���������iWhen-his-big^Freneh-touring-car-ar-  rived Robben wanted Miss Westley to  be the first to ride in it. As be finished  his explanation of its mechanism sbe  gingerly put her hand on one of tht  many levers.  "What is this funny little lever for?"  "That regulates the speed."  "Oh, I see. It's a sort of mechanical  brldlo rein. And what happens when  you press this big white button?"  "That cranks the wheel automatically , and starts tho motor going. It's  vory simple really, aud a child could  run and control it."  "A child could run it? Why, then, it  requires neither courage nor skill to  Ironlrrd Table Water.

Itobben studied the tall, athletic, self  reliant girl who rode a horse so perfectly and for the moment was sorry  that he ever bad seen au automobile.  But be enjoyed the ride.  Two weeks later he started out in the  early,morning in his automobile for a  run iu the country where he could  think it all over. lie told blinscif that  by the time he returned he would have  made ui) his miud either" to propose to  Miss Westley or to go to Europe and  try to forget her.  He was alone, and he as turned at  moderate speed iuto Pelham parkway,  in Westchester, he saw ahead a girl on  a horse. The bracing, balmy spring air  laden with tho perfumes of budding  trees and early ilowers and the notes  of birds, added to the physical exhilaration of rapid movement, bad a pleasing effect upon Robben. The girl on  the horse fitted perfectly into the  scheme.  For a few seconds he was lost in  contemplation and admiration of ber  superb horsemanship. Then he recognized something about tbe poise ot bei  head and the set of her shoulders and  knew that the girl on the horse was  Miss Westley. He wanted to join her,  but the combination of Miss Westley \  on a horse and him in an automobile  seemed to him unfavorable, and ho  slowed down.  As he watched her he forgot all about  his trip to Europe and determined to  propose at the first opportunity.  Suddenly her horse swerved violently to the right and broke from a steady  canter into a wild gallop. Robben knew  instantly either that the bridle rein had  broken or tbat the horse had taken the  bit in his teeth. Clearly the animal  was running away.  The girl retained her seat in the saddle, and, while she appeared to be perfectly cool, he knew tliat around a turn  in the road less than a mile away Was  the bridge a'cross Pelbam bay, and the  chances were great tbat the horse ih  his blind wildness might dash her  against the iron supports of the narrow  structure or carry her into the bay if  she were not thrown before they reached the bridge.  He threw the clutch on to the highest  gear, and the powerful machine, thus  -*urged~to-the-extent-of-lts-sixty-horse-���������  power, leaped forward. It was a long  chance he was taking, but the girl on  the runaway was Edith Westley.  Grasping the steering wheel with his  left hand, he slid as far as possible to  the right of the seat and guided th������  machine alongside the horse. The animal veered off as tbe machine overtook  bim, but Robben reduced speed and  kept as close as possible.  "Steady, Mise Westley," he said  calmly. "Free your skirts and jump  when I say tbe word. Steady now!"  They were within fifty yards of tho  bridge when Robben throw off tbe  clutch, jammed down the brake and,  with a skillful twist of the steering  wheel, skidded close to the runaway.  Bracing himself with his knoe against  tho dashboard, he let go the wheel and,  reaching far out over tho side of the  machine, said, "Como!"  With a quick movement ho throw his  arm about tho girl ns sho loft the saddle and, straining every muscle, lifted  hor into tho machine Her weight and  tho suddon shock threw them against  the stoorlng wheel with terrific force.

A competent printer himself, special  attention is given by Mr. West to the  typographical appearance of the  weekly which he edits, while the business of the well equipped job department is largely patronized. To this,  the distinctly profitable part of the  country printing business, special and  personal attention is given and orders  for job work have come to him from  many outside points. Verily, Manitoba the" horizon-bounded prairie land  is not parochial in its business methods.  Mr. West is a young man, a very  young man according to Eastern Canadian standards, to control a business  in a rising town. He was born Oct.  25, 1877 at Wlllarton in the county of  Bruce and educated at the public  school of his native village and at  the public and,high schools at Kincardine where his family removed  when he was a youngster of ten. Mr.  West's entry into business life was  as a lad on the driving seat of a  grocery wagon,in Kincardine. The  road travelled by a grocery wagon  -did-not-appeaR-to-lead-to-the-highway-  of fortune and after a year the future editor of the Glenboro Gazette  laid down the ribbons and listened to  the call of the west and in 1892 came  to Manitoba to spend a summer with  his father who four years before had  made his home in Manitoba*  It   was   then   that Mr. West was  lured into the newspaper and printing business.   Mr.   James   Ross,   at  that time publisher of the Glenboro  Gazette is responsible for it.     The  delights of running  the  roller over  the type on the old Washington hand  press on press days were too much  for the young lad from the county of  Bruce.     Printers    ink got Into the  blood of the boy which is traditionally  incurable and he became practically  " the devil" of the Gazette.   In 1892  he returned to Kincardine with the  unaccountable    fascination    of    the  printing office yet pervading hia being and becanve apprentice in tho office  of tho Kincardine Reporter on  tne 21st May 1893 at that time edited  by Wlilter M. Dock,  M.P.P. for  Centre    Bruce,   with   whom he remained for a year and a half.   He  then worked for James Bryan on the  Lucknow Sentinel for a year, and afterwards  for  Major  Clarke,  M.P.P.,  on tho Kincardine   Review for two  yours  where he had  charge of the  mechanical work of the office.   After  working a short time In Blythe, Ont.,  on   tho   "Standard" he returned to  Manitoba in 1898  working with the  resourcefulness    of   the young Canadian on his father's farm whon tho  printing trado was dull.  Mr. West began to work permanently for Mr, W. T. Shipley ou tho  pnpor which ho wna afterwards to  odlt, on January 1, 1902.

Nearly every one���������man or woman  ���������in this day has attempted 10 speak at  some gathering and^has'5sat down wiih  the frightful,consciousness of having said  something which was far from that ru-  teuded. One mail, a lawyer, is still  piqued at himself over the recollection Ut-  having said threo times in the course of  on address that "there was no food for  either animal or beast," ami a eei-tuiij  clubwoman recalls with horror how. ii������  the midst of a poetic description of su;,  rise in Alaska, she finished with "and il  was very pretty indeed."  Yet there are more recorded slips made  by ministers, perhaps, because a ridiculous thing said from the pulpit becomes  thrice ridiculous, as, for Insl-mco, the an  ooui)cement  made by a country clergyman just before the benediction that Mrs  Blank, a poor widow of the parish, de  aired him m thank all those members of  the church who hud so kindly "assisted"  at th* death of her husband.

A certain* minister who was famous  for seizing every opportunity to point  a moral was walking one clay with one  of his parishioners and expostulating  with him on account of his sinful ways.  Presently they came to a plj*.ce where  ice had formed on the sidewalk, and  the sinful man's foot flew from under  him, giving him a bad fall.  The minister quickly seized the  chance and, looKiag down upon him,  said, "My friend, you now see that  sinners stand on slippery places."  The sinful one looked ruefully up  and answered, "Yes, I see they do, but  I ean't."-Ne\v York World.

It made n pleasant sight  for the crowd on the sands, but Julia  was not in a mood to be au impartial  spectator. She had come down (or  three days, she could not swim, and.  she thought the time was too short in  which to try to learn.  Allan Wright aud Bess Hart were  water comrades of many summers.  Julia would not spoil their sport. She  had known Allan Wright only in town,  and here sbe felt almost like an intruder. They had urged her to join  them, but she fancied it was from politeness. '  Beating herself on the sand, Julia  began to dig a furrow with the heel of  her small shoe.   Then she looked out  1  SHE *?On*TED OUT TOWA.B3 THE MAN AND  THB onui.  on the water, where she could see the  heads of her two friends, swimming  side by side. She turned her parasol  around so as to shut off the ocean.  Julia recalled the two last times she  bad seen Allan. During those talks a  slight acquaintance had quickly developed Into close sympathy. They  had felt together that delicious surprise tliat comes when ono finds that  another has entered tho same hidden  door of thought or fancy whose key  only they two In all the world possess.  They had Just begun to talk of things  that opened up long, winding ways  through the, forest of dreams, when  Julia's mother had taken her off to the  mountains. Whllo they wero gone Allan's family went to tho shoro for the  summer and he went with them.  Whether Boss Hart's lively ways had  won him or not Julia was unable to  decide. Certainly thoy wero vory good  friends.  Julia raised hor pnrasol and looked  out again toward the swimmers. They  wore coming back now. Suddenly t-lie  fcnw tho girl's arm go up In the nlr und  thon her bond sunk out of night. An  instant later tho man, too, hud disappeared beneath tlio surface. Julia's  heart seemed to stop beating, She  could not cry out or raise herself  from tlio Hiiiiii. Then tlto mini's head  roso into view, and beside him he had  tho girl.  Julia struggled to her feet and ran  toward tho water. A broken wavo  rolled up and wet her ankles, hut sho  did not hood it. Sho called to the bathing master again and again. At last  bo turned, and sho pointed out toward  the man and tho girl, Allan was holding bis own, but Bess appeared to bo  unconscious, and ho had to support  ber as a doad weight.  It was not long before the bathing  master bad gained bis side, and the  two wore able to reach shallow water  with their burden. Thon, raising tlio  girl's limp Blenderness in his arms,  Allan carried her ashore nnd laid her  gently on the beach. Julia knelt by  bor friend and put bor oar to tho wet  garment over ber heart. Then she  looked up quickly to Aiian.  "Sbe is alive, thank (Jodi Carry her  to my room, quick!" Tbo young man  obeyed ber, Julia leading tho way,  By noon of tlie next day Hen* Hart  was strong enough to bo aw-lstcd to  ber own cottage. Allan came around  to inqulro how she felt, and tho girl  thanked him with unrest rallied slueer*  Ity. Julia contrived to leave them  alone soon after the man appeared.  Bhe did not return, suit walked out to  th* beneri ns far away ns t-he could  wander from the crowd, Miv.m "die  sat down and pressed her heel Into  the sand. She heard a Hop hchaul  ber. but did not turn. Thvt������ Allan's  volet asked:  "Did yon think three days so long  a time to spend with your friends,  Miss Forman, that you must run away  and steal an hour of that from us?"  Julia could not trust herself to answer. The young man waited a moment before he tried again.  "Have you forgotten the last talk  we had in the city?" he asked.  "No, I have not forgotten," said  Julia in a low tone.  "When I heard you were coming I  thought we could go oa where we left  off," persisted the voice over her shoulder. Then Julia turned. When she  spoke her voice had a resolute vibra  tiou in it as if she were forcing herself  to say tlie words.  "It must be~a���������glorious ��������� thing���������to  know tliat you saved���������ber���������life!" Then  she added with a self forgetful pleasure, "We are all���������I am so grateful to  you, Mr. Wright."  "You all make too much of it," exclaimed Allan hastily. Then he spoke  again with an earnestness Julia had  never heard in a man's voice.  "Do you know what I was thinking  when I went down for her? I thought  if I didn't save her you would never  torsive me. Not that I shouldn't hav*  tried anyway, but when I thought of  you I simply could not fall." An Incredulous look stole into Julia's eyes.  "You don't mean you were thinking  of anybody but Bess at such a moment?" she asked.  "Not only that," returned Allan, "It  even flashed through my mind that I  wished it were you that I was saving.  It would be very sweet to have you  owe your life to me."  "That would not be a very big debt,"  said Julia,' speaking as lightly as she  could and trying to smile up at him.  The effort had so little success that she  turned away her face.  "It would be the greatest thing on  God's earth," declared Allan, with an  almost religious fervor of tone.

Creajnery  So much has been written on the subject of unprofitable cows that it would  seem unnecessary to say anything further, but it is still true tbat unprofitable cows are being kept by many  farmers, says an Ohio farmer in American Agriculturist. They not only do  not pay for their keeping, but they are  constantly running their owners in  debt The best tliiug to do with such  cattle is to turn them into beef as soon  as possible and sell them to the first  buyer. These poor boarders can be  told from profitable cows, not so much  by the size of their udders as by tbe  use of scales and the Babcock test  Weighing the milk four or five times in  the course of a year will not tell the  story. Each cow's milk should be  weighed once or twice a week. I find  twice a week the most satisfactory.  Pome dairymen consider once a week  sufficient. Milk should be tested once  or twice a month, and each cow's feed  should be weighed and charged to her  at the market price.  This record should be kept for a  year. I have a smooth planed board  checked off for each cow hanging in  my barn. In this way I know at the  end ot the year how much milk each  cow gives and how much butter her  milk will make if the cream is all saved by the use of a good centrifugal  separator. By deducting the cost of  keeping from the receipts of cream or  butter you have the profit or loss on  each cow. Your herd may all return a  profit but more likely you will find  that you have some that you are keeping at a loss.  "WHEN MY SHIP COMES IN."  One room I'll have that's full ot  shelves.

IRVING ART TREASURES.  Donkey as Doctor.  The donkey was a famous old-time  medical charmer, particularly in dental  troubles.   Kissing a donkey, if done -according to established formula, was _���������������>-������������������  counted an  unfailing  cure for  toothache, and the proper way of doing it  is explained in the Rev. Caesar Otwa3r*si  i trial of an old Irishwoman for stealing  j a donkey, which she had borrowed t������  i cure   herself  of  a  violent    toothacfee.  j "Plase yer honor," she told the magistrate,   "Whin   I   got   him"~-i;e., .the  j donkey���������"to my place,  I held htm  hy"  j the   halter'just   ovor  the   sill jof  th*������-  i door, his head above the' lucky ho-rse-  j shoe  .   .   . and there I lifted up hits  j upper  lip  and  gave  him   three  kisses;.  jn ! on his teeth . . . and the pain left roe.  j and I lets him go, thinking aa he knowfftf*  nd ' tho way, and would have trotted be-ofc-  j to his own home, and nobody be u Sii"*:.  the wiser."    The  method  adopted tor.-  children teething was  (and    often    __-,  still)  generally  to "pluck a few h&irs.  from the cross on a donkey's back, atn������  hang them in a bag round the neck c������  the  child,  which  will   then  be  pi-roast*  against fits and convulsions."   But the  details of the process varied.  A Surrey-  woman  not  long since  asserted  to ������  collector of information that she   bsufi  brought  up  eleven    children    wltbo-efr  having any teething trouble with theonv  for upon the first symptom of fretfuJ-  ness she went off early in the mornine-,.  borrowed a donkey, and set the chfliS  upon  its back,  with  its  face towards  the  tall,   and  then  led  the animal mt  short distance while she said the Lord's  Prayer.   Then, taking the child oft, she  kissed it, and said, "God bless it"; anffi  after that all signs of teething inconvenience disappeared."  A Cnref-al Cobbler.  An amusing case of experience  through one's nppearnnce is related by  a lady who wont into a cobbler's shop  in a town in Scotland and left a pair of  rough and ready shoes to bo mended.  She was plainly dressed as a traveler  and evidently made no particular impression on tho mind of the shoe mender. In a few days, on returning from  some festal occasion, tho lady stopped  her carriage at the cobbler's door and  went herself Into the shop to get her  shoes. But tho man told her ho had no  shoes belonging to her, and whon she  pointed them out ho flatly refused to  Jet her have thorn, insisting that they  did not belong to hor. Klie loft, determined to get the aid of tho police If  necessary to obtain hor property, but  the next day sho concluded to try  again. This tlmo Rho was more successful, but na tho man bunded her  shoes io her Iio told her that a strange  woman'in a cnrrlago had tried to got  Uiem nwny from him.  "She was a night bonnier than yourself, but I war noo carried nwa' wl'  her," lie i-ukl it3 lie handed her tin-  package, nnd tlio owner of the shoos  real I zod thnt Rho wns another sort of  woman In her traveling gown and bore  no roBembliuieo to her other Holf in party attire. It was a case of mistaken  Identity that was curious and convincing.���������Loudon Standard,  Care For Kicking Cottsj.  In answer to a request in the Ohio  Farmer for a method to keep a cow  from kicking G. W. Lee submits the  following plan: Some years ago we obtained a good butter cow, but an in-  ANTIKICETNO DEVICB.  veierate kicker. Numerous plans had  been used to break tho habit, bot to no  nvail. After somo thought we procured a fifteen inch strip of wood, put  a hole in both ends, large enough for a  hamo strap, and then buckled it on tho  cow's leg, ns shown in the illustration.  She kicked for somo time, but could  only lift her foot nnd kick backward,  whllo I milked her with ease, After  using this method for awhile sho would  permit even a child to milk her.

The flavor of butter largely depends  on tho food tlio cows eat,  Regularity In feeding nnd milking  makes cows give moro milk.  A cow tliat does not eat heartily will  not yield an abundance of milk.  Rapid churning will not got ns much  butter out of cream as slow churning  will.  Tho butter will not como as quickly  when tho churn Is almost full of cream.  The separator is a godsend to tho  dairyman who has euuugh cows to ussq  it profitably.  Heifers do not need fattening foods  whllo growing, mit food Ihat will develop bono nnd muscle.  Ono will finally get a bettor price for  his butter If ho always makes it of uniformly good quality.  A11 of the milk should be drawn from  a cow's udder at every milking, as tho  rovorso tends to mako hor go dry.  Auction Sale Brings In Nearly a Hundred  Thousand   Dollars.  At the auction sale of Sir Henry Irv-  ing's effects the famous Whistler portrait of Sir Henry as King Philip II.  of Spain was sold for $25,200. Sargent's portrait of Ellen Terry In the  character of Lady Macbeth realized  $6,300. The Whistler picture goes to  America. The name of the purchaser  of the Whistler was carefully withheld  by the representative of a firm of booksellers of London, who bid it in. It  is rumored, however, that J. Pierpont  Morgan of New York was the actual  purchaser.  ---The-last-day-of--the-Itvini-sar_i'ws������-  remarkable for the testimony of the  regard in which the actor was held.  The sale was confined to pictures and  drawings by such artists as Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Sir Philip Burne-  Jones, Sir Joshua Reynolds, John I.  Sargent, Whistler and others. The. attendance Included many well-known  persons of the dramatic art and fashionable world. The bidding was lively  and largely sentimental, and the prices  which prevailed throughout the sale  were maintained, when $50,000 was realized. Altogether the Irving sals'  brought between $75,000 and $100,000.  Shared Scott's Secret.  There were many queer characters  In Ballantyne's printing house In  Edinburgh, and one of them declared  that he know who wrote the Wavor-  ley Novels, "almost as soon aa the  master," Mr. James Ballantyne.
