"Hello, young man!" said he. "lf One  Is four, how many are two?*'  "If you're Bpeaking of new boots,"  said the widow, "one is at least fifteen."  The schoolteacher made no reply, but  stood a moment looking down at the  boy.  "It's a cold day," said Polly.  "I like it," said the teacher, lifting  bis broad shoulders and smiting them  with his hands. "God has been bouse  cleaning. The dome of tbe sky is all  swept and dusted. There isn't a cobweb anywhere. Santa Claus come?"  "Yes," said the younger children, who  made a rush for their gifts and laid  them on chairs before him. ^  "Grand old chap!" said he, staring  thoughtfully at the flannel cat in his  hands. "Any idea who it is?"  "Can't make out," said Mrs. Vaughn;  "very singular man."  "Generous, too," the teacher added.  "That's the best cat I ever saw, Tom.  lf I had my way the cats would all be  made'of flannel. Miss Polly, what did  you get?"

So it was the first morning of that  winter term in 1850. A tall youth  stood by the window. Suddenly be  gave a loud "Sh-h-h!" Running feet  fell silently and baited; words begun witb a shout ended Jn a whisper.  A boy maHisg caricatures at the blackboard dropped his chalk that now fell  noisily. A whisper, heaVy with awe  i and expectation, flew hissing from lip  to lip, "The teacher!" There came a  tramping In the vestibule, the door  latch jumped with a loud rattle, and  In came Sidney Trove. AH eyes were  turned upon him. A look of rectitude,  dovelike:and.too.good to be true, came  over many faces.  "Good morning," said the young wan,  removing his cap, coat and overshoes.  Some nodded, dumb with; timidity. Only a few little ones had the bravery to  speak up, as they gave back the words  in a tone that would have fitted a golden text He came to the roaring stove  and stood a moment, warming his  hands. A group of the big boys were  ln a corner whispering. Two were  sturdy and quite six feet tall ��������� the  Beach boys.  "Big as a bull moose," one whispered,  ; <v.  "An' stouter," said another.  The teacher took a pencil from his  pocket and tapped the desk.  "Please take your seats," said be.  All obeyed. .Then he went around  with the roll and took their names, of  which there were thirty-four.  "I believe.;! know your name," said  The teacher tore him out of the place.  ���������Take It home with you tonight;"  said he, continuing his talk to .the  primer class. "Spell it over, so yoo  won't have to stop long between words.  All who read it well tomorrow will get  another chapter."  They began to study at home. Wonder grew, and pleasure came with labor as this tale went on.  He dismissed the primer readers,  calling the first class in geography.  As they took their places be. repaired  the broken seat, a part of which had  been torn off the nails. The fallen  rebel stood leaning, his back to the  school. He had expected help, but the  reserve force had failed him.  "Joe Beach, you may take your eeat,"  said the teacher in a kind of pares*  AI..AI���������I   A.   lio Be Continued.)

"1 believe you do." said she, glancing  up at bim, with half a smile and a little move in her lips that seemed to  ask, "How could you forget me?"  Then the teacher, knowing the peril  of her eyes, became very dignified as  he, glanced over the books she had  brought to school. He knew it was  going to be a bard day. For a little  he wondered if he had not been foolish,  after all, in trying a job so difficult and  so perilous. If he should be thrown out  of school he felt sure it would ruin  bim���������he could never look Polly in the  face again.

He was bought by the Jardin des  Plantes from the London Zoo, and  brought over to Paris by Keeper  Neef 24 years ago. Neef remained  Said's keeper, and the elephant loved  him dearly. The' brute was sweet-  tempered, as a rule, but last year, in  a fit of ill-temper brought about by  illness, he killed his friend and keeper, Neei.   ���������    ���������     '  Since then the elephant has literally been shrinking away until he  became little but skin and bone.

What fun  would a circus be without a bag* or two,  of peanuts to feed the animals, two-  leg.jed and four?  Mow many of you really know more  about this delicious nut, except that it is  so mighty good to eat that when we got  started it is very hard to stop?  Some children would not even know  what you meant If you went down to a  stand and asked for five cents' worth of  fresh roasted peanuts. For they perhaps call them groundnuts or goobers  or earth nuts or plndars, according to  the part of the country in which they  live. Tou see, the peanut is a plant of  many names.  say next summer, when inclined to get  cross, "This ls good peanut weather."  It will make you feel more cheerful.  Did you ever think what a lot of work  it takes to have this peanut crop, of  which Americans are so fond that they  use from 4,000,000 to 6,000.000 bushels a  year?  First, the ground must be weeded very  carefully; then early In October, as soon  as the nuts show they are ripe, the  farmer runs a plow under each row to  cut off the main roots. Then he pulls  up the vines all covered with nuts and  heaps them in great piles, seven or eight  feet high, around a stake. Not for three  or four weeks are the nuts ready to be  picked ottc  Nor does this picking end the work.  All these millions of shells muat be  Playthings Made of Peanuts  Did any ot you ever see great fields  of peanuts growing on thick green,  hairy stems about two feet high?. After  the flower has fallen the stem which  supports it bends down till it pushes Into  the ground, where tbe fruit or pod de-  velops...  The peanut's native home is down in  Brazil, but soon after South America  was discovered it was taken back by the  explorers to Europe, and every one there  found it. so good it was soon cultivated  in all the warm countries. For the peanut, you must know, loves an early  spring and a hot, moist summer. As this  is just the kind of weather that makes  boys and girls feel cross and growl over  the humidity,  you must remember to  sorted, the broken and discolored ones  thrown away, andxthe others cleaned  and polished. Thousands of boys and  -girls earn their living by getting the  peanuts ready and-packed up to send all  over America and Europe for the roasting machine.  Nice, hot roasted nuts are not the  only way we can use peanuts. Soma  people in Europe press the oil out of  them to use for a salad dressing, and  then the meal is fed to cattle or pigs.  Who doesn't like peanut butter sandwiches? Peanut soup ls very nourishing,  while peanut toys and dolls are such  sport to make that you mutt be sura to  make some of these.  ^0W^A^^**^^^^^^-^^^^A^^^^^^^^^0i^^^^^*^������ '*^***e*Smr*mm^**mS***mi**,r*^m+*^*^^m^mm0  N THE month of September, at the time  of full moon, devout  Japanese villagers are  accustomed to wend  their pilgrim way, by  moonlight, along  beautiful, winding  paths, to the ancient  sljrlnee on the moun-  taintops and there  make their pious offerings to the moon.  One such shrine  stands on the top ot  Usui Pass. By the  pass for many, many,  centuries���������Indeed, up  to a brief half century ago���������passed and  repassed east and  west the armed cavalcades of warring  Samurai. Poor Samurai! Their day is  over. No longer are  they to be seen crossing Usui in pursuit of enemy or support of friend. For  now they must follow the paths of  peace Vith the rest of their countrymen.  One evening we joined the pilgrimage  to the shrine on Usui Pass, and near  the top we came to a village, where we  halted for a view of the misty, moonlit  valleys at our feet and the black, rugged .mountains beyond and about'us, We  could almost touch the sealike clouds  that broke about the mountain peaks,  and almost see the silver streams that  wound their way among the hills.  Climbing a long flight of steps, we  came to an oM temple, from which ts  the finest view of all. It is uninteresting to leok at, this bare Shinto temple,  with no burnishing save a polished  metal mirror and a bronze bell, which  worshipers ring when they come to do  homage to their ancestors.  But it has a monument���������one rude,  moss-grown stone set up on another  and larger stone, with an inscription tn  Chinese characters too old and worn to  read���������and about this monument the following legend runs:  There lived long, long ago a warrior  King, and this King had the misfortune  to offend one of the jealous gods, who  immediately decreed that the King must  die unless he could And a friend to die  In blr stead.   Now, the Kipg was not  afraid to die, but he knew that his life  was more valuable than most men's  lives. So he called his comrades about  him and asked which one of them was  willing to give up bis life to save the  King's. One after another he asked, but  although every last mun was a mighty  warrior and ready to die if need be in  the midst of battle, not a single one of  them could be found who was willing  to give up his life In place of the King.  A.  A!lrfl??  Down From thc Cliff  The King then wept bitterly, aad Ifc  chanced that the Queen came upon hltfe  as he grieved.  "Why are you so sorrowful?" she?  asked. And when he told her, she, too������  wept and mourned; but a little later ah*  recovered her composure and begged her  lord tp attend a feast which she intended preparing for him. ,  The royal tents were found pitched  close by a cliff which overhung th*  sea, their silk banners fluttering in the  breeze. Here, to the minor music of the*  kote, the King and his comrades feasted:  and conversed, the Queen sitting by ber  lord dressed in royal brocade that was  embroidered all over with cherry flowera  and golden peacocks and blue waterfalls, while in her hair she wore a golden  comb. After the meats and,other heavy  foods came* rich dainties, which werfc  spread before them on the beautifully-  lacquered tables���������dried persimmons.,  bean paste, sweetmeats moulded Into,  the shape of gay chrysanthemums and  rose petals and stars, and bowls of rice-  made sake; which the warriors lustily-  quaffed.  Then the Queen stole unnoticed froir-  the scene of revelry and made her way  alone to the top of the cliff which overlooked the sea.  Here she gazed at the sun slowly setting amidst a blaze,of glorious gold.  "Royal like myself !'r murmured the-  Queen, "and though setting now, 'twill-  rise again. So, though I die, shall I not.  live again, because 1 have saved the life-  of my lord?"  She was young and strong and happy.,  and life was sweet to her; but great  love gave her courage to die. And so���������  when morning came and they searched  for her, no sign of the Queen did thejr  And, until, at last, far down on ther  sands at the foot of the cliff, they came  upon her golden comb.  And then the King knewi that the-  Queen had given up her life, a sacrifice for his; and he mourned for her bitterly many weary days, and made a sad:  pilgrimage to this^yery temple on the*  way to Usui Pass; and here he erected  this monument, and on it inscribed the-  story of the noble tleath of his Queen.  Then, gazing over the plain below, he.-  said thrice in a melancholy voice, "A-au-  ma wa ya!" lAlas! my wife) and froir-  this eastern Japan came by its name,  Azuma. , POLLY EVANS. ,  gaTXEARIE ME, thle town is get-  I J ting so disgraceful dirty, I'll  *^ have to ask Mr. Mayor to get  out a conjunction against the soot,"  aaid Polly, with such a funny imitation  of what the children called "Aunt Sue's  club meeting manner" that mother  laughed heartily...

Polly immediately decided to have a  washing party, to get all her children's  clothes clean at once.

If she has  neither, let her choose instead a blue  and white room, which is almost as  clean looking and a great deal easier to  keep in order.  For the walls use one of those papers  which have an oilcloth finish. ThlB, if  properly hung, can be wiped off witn a  damp cloth as often as spots or-soil  make lt necessary. Very pretty all  white or cream white paper���������absolutely  ..plain except for Us polished surface-  comes. White oilcloth paper, with markings of pale gray, which divide into '  delicate patterns, makes a hanging for  an uneven wall that Is better than a  plain paper, yet which doesn't take at  all, for some peculiar reason, from the  general Impression of all white.  Some of the new oilcloth papers imitate tiling bo perfectly that It needs a  close glance to tell the difference, especially those ln blue and white, with  the "ny patterns copied directly from  tiles And the beauty about fixing a  bath room in bluo and whlto is that  the woodwork oan be left unchanged,  while for an all white room it must be  sandpapered until every bit of the colored paint Is oft, then given a good  coat of white paint, followed by a  coat of enamel. If you are careful about  the sandpapering, the white paint will  look aa though nothing else had ever  been upon the woodwork. Yet the  walls, white ail tho way down to the.  floor, effect a perfect transformation of \  tha room,  .  Your bath tub should be. of course,  of porcelain, to carry out the idea of  the room in its prettiest fashion; but if  you've the old-fashioned kind, ln its setting . of wood, remove, the paint from  that wood, as well as from the surbase,  and paint and enamel It, too. Treat the  tub with the sort of enamel especially  prepared for just such work. Don t use  the ordinary enamel paints for such  work or painting a tub, whatever you  do. It has a way of coming off in  streaks and spots.  BATB CONTEIVANCES  White wood for the floor shows every  mark too readily to prove satisfactory,  yet some very 'attractive rooms have  had the floor painted white like the rest  of the room. A better way is to cover  it with white oilcloth, or, if possible,  to match oilcloth and oilcloth paper exactly.

The result is that  the upper portion expands much "more than the  lower.  This uneven expansion causes a strain  ���������.oo great for a one-piece fire-pot to si nd.  k Sooner or later it will split, allowing precious  heat   and    sickening   gases   to  escape.  But the fire-pot of the Sunshine  is constructed to meet this < on-  dition. It is in two sections. The  upper half expands, as much as  necessary, independently of the  low er. When cool, it contracts *  back to its original size, fitting  to the lower half perfectly.  And this stronjr, unbreakable,  gas and heal-tight, two-piece  fire^pot is just one cf the many  superior featurcsof the Sunshine.
