THE    LEDGE,    GREENWOOD,    BRITISH    COLUMBIA.  BY MARY J. HOLHES  I Author of "Dora Deane," "The English Orphans/' ������  "Lena Rivers/' "The Rector of St, Mark's/'  "Tempest and Sunshine/' Etc.  (Continued)  CHAPTER II.  Madge her schoolmates called her,  because the name suited her, they  said; but Maddy they called her at  home, and there was a world of unutterable tenderness in the voices of  the .old couple, her grandparents,  when they saici tlmt name, while their  dim eyes lighted up with pride and  joy when they rested upon the young  girl who answered to the name of  Maddy. Their" only daughter's only  child, sho had lived with them since  her mother's death, for her father  was a sea captain, who- never returned from his last voyage to China,  made- two months bcforo she was  born. Very lonely and desolate would  the homo of Grandfather Markharn  have been without the presence of  Madeline, but with her there, the old  red farmhouse seemed to the aged  couple like a paradise.  Forty  years   they  had  lived   there,  tilling the rather barren soil  of  the  rocky homestead, and, saving the sad  night when they heard that Richard  Clyde  was lost  at sea,  and   the   far  sadder morning  when their daughter  died,  bitter sorrow had  not come to  them;   and,   truly   thankful   for    the  blessings  so  long  vouchsafed    them,  they had retired each night in peace  with  God  and   man,  and  risen  each  morning to pray.   But a change was  coming over them.   In  an  evil  hour  Grandpa Markhain had signed a note  for "a neighbor and friend, who failed  to pay, and so it all fell on Mr. Mark-  ham, who, to meet the demand, mortgaged his homestead;    the    recreant  neighbor still  insisting that long before the mortgage should be due, he  certainly   would   be   able   himself   to  meet it.  This,   however,  he  had  not  done,  and, after  twice  begging  off a  foreclosure,    poor    old    Grandfather  Markharn found himself at the mercy  of a grasping,  remorseless man, into  whose hands the mortgage had passed.   It  was  vain   to  hope  that  Silas  Slocum would wait. The money must  either  be   forthcoming,  or    the    red  farmhouse be sold, with its few acres  of  land.   Among  his  neighbors  there  was not one who had the money to  spare,  even   if  he   had   been   willing  to do so. And so he must look among  strangers.  "If I could only help," Madeline  had said one evening when they sat  talking over their troubles; "but  there's nothing I can do, unless I apply for our school this summer. Mr.  Green is committeeman; he likes us  and I don't believe but what he'll let  me have it. I mean to go and see;"  and, ere the old people had recovered from their astonishment, Madeline  had caught her bonnet and shawl,  and was flying down the road.  Madeline was a favorite with all, especially, with Mr. Green, and as the  .school'.would be small that summer,  the plan struck him favorably. Her  age, however, was an objection, and  he must take time to see what others  thought of a child like her becoming  a schoolmistress Others thought well  of it, and so before the close of the  next day it was generally known  through Honedale, as the southern  part of Devonshire was called, that  pretty little Madge Clyde had been  engaged as teacher, sho receiving  three dollars a week, with the understanding that she must board herself.,  It did not take Madeline long to- calculate that twelve times three were  thirty-six, more than a tenth of what  her grandfather must borrow. It  seemed like a little fortune, and blithe  as a singing bird she flitted about the  house, now stopping a mqment to  fondle her pet kitten, while she whispered the good news in its very appreciative ear, and then stroking her  grandfather's silvery hair, as she  said:  "Yon can tell them that you are  sure of paying thirty-six dollars in  the fall, and if I do well, maybe  they'll hire me longer. I mean to try  my very best. I wonder if ever anybody before rne taught a school when  they were only fourteen and a- half.  Do I look as young as that?" and for  an instant the bright, childish face  ���������scanned itself eagerly in the old-  fashioned mirror, with the figure of  an eagle on the top.  She did look very young, and yet  there was something womanly, too,  in the - expression of the face, something which said that life's realities  were already beginning to be understood by her.  "If my hair were not short I should  do better. What a pity I cut it the  last time; it would have been so long  and splendid now," she continued,  giving a kind of contemptuous pull  at the thick, beautiful brown hair on  whose glossy surface there was in  certain lights n reddish tinge which  added to its beauty.  "Never mind the hair, Mnddy," the  old   man  said, gazing  fondly at  her  with u half sigh as he remembered  another brown head, pillowed now beneath the graveyard turf. "Mnybe you  won't pass muster, and then tho hair  will make no difference. There's a  new comrnrtteeman, that Dr. Hoi-  brook from Boston, and new ones are  apt to be mighty strict."  Instantly Mnd'dy's face flushed all  over  with  nervous    dread,    as    she  thought:  "What  if   I  should   fail?"  fancying that to do so would  be an  eternal disgrace But she should not.  She was called by everybody the very  'best scholar in school, the one whom  the teachers always put forward when  desirous of showing off, the one whom  ���������Mr. Tiverton, and Squire Lamb, and  Lawyer Whittemore always noticed so  'much. Of course she should not fail,  ���������though she did dread Dr. Holbrook,  wondering much what he would ask  her first, and hoping it    would    be  .something in arithmetic, provided he  did not stumble upon decimals, where  ���������she was apt to get bewildered. She  !had no foars of grammar. She could  /pick out the most obscure wntence  and  dissect  a double  relative   with  perfect ease; then, as to geography,  ���������she could repent whole pages of that,  iwhilo in the spelling-book, tho fou������-  dation  of a  thorough  education,  a������  ,sho had boen taught, she had no superiors and  but a very  fow equals.  'Still  she would  bo  very glad when  it was over, and sho appointed Monday,  both  because  ft was close    dt  hand, and because that was the day  ,lier grandfather had sot in which to  iride  to  Aikenaido,   in  an  adjoining  itown_.and.J~k its voutyr mriajer for  fheno'Sn STTIfree TiundreiTcloTrarra.   '  He could hardly tell why he had  thought of applying to Guy Remington for help, unless it were that he  once had saved the life of Guy's father, who, as long as he lived, had  evinced a great regard for his benefactor, frequently asserting that he  meant to do something for him. Rut  the something was never done, the  father was dead, and in his strait the  old man turned to the son, whom- he  knew to be very rich, and who he  .had been told was exceedingly generous.  "How I wish I could go with you  clear up to Aikenside! They say it's  so beautiful," Madeline had said, as  on Saturday evening they sat discussing the expected events of the following Monday. "Mrs. Noah, the house-  .kecper, had Sarah Jones there once,  to sew, and she told me all irbout it.  Thero are graveled walks, and nice  green lawns, and  big, tall trees, and  CTibugTitTier old cnough.'surely'iVwaa  not a matter with which the doctor  need trouble himself; and'somewhat  at ease on that point, Madeline don-  nod her longest frock, and, standing  on a chair, tried to discover how much  of her pantalets was visible.  "I could see splendidly in Mr. Remington's mirrors," she said to herself,  with a half-sigh of regret that her lot  had not been cast in some such place  as Aikenside, instead of there beneath  the hill in that wee bit of a cottage  whose rear stanted back until it almost touched the ground. "After all,  I guess I'm happier here," sho  thought. "Everybody likes me, while  if I were Mr. Guy's sister and lived  at Aikenside, I might be proud and  wicked, and "  She did not finish the sentence, butj  somehow the story of Dives and Lazarus, read by her grandfather that  morning, recurred to her mind, and  feeling how much rather she would  rest in Abraham's bosom than share  the fate of him who once was clothed  in purple and flue linen, she pinned  on her little neat plaid shawl, and,  tying the blue ribbons of her coarse  straw hat, glanced once more at the  formidable cube root, and then hurried down to where her grandfather  and old Sorrel were waiting for her.  "I shall be so happy when I como  back,  because  it  will   then  be over.  REARING  LAYERS.  underwe  nly on<  wear: out slowest,  des you from the day you  j- buy it.

Oh, I do so wish I  could have a peep at it! There are  two in one room, and the windows  are like doors, with lace curtains; but  what is queerest of all, the chairs andJ  sofas are covered with real silk, just  like that funny, gored gown of-grand-  ma's up in the oak chest. Dear me! I  wonder if I'll ever live in such a  place as Aikenside?"  "No, no, Mnddy, no. Be satisfied  with the lot where God has put you.  and don't be longing after something  higher. Our Father in heaven knows  just what is best for us; as He didn't  see fit to put you up at Aikenside,  'tain't noways likely you'll ever live  in the like of it."  "Not   unless   I   should   happen' to  marry a rich man. Poor girls like me  have  sometimes  done  that,    haven't  they?" was Maddy's demure reply.  Grandpa Markharn shook his head.  "They   have,   but  it's   mostly  their  ruination;  so  don't  build   castles  in  the air about this Guy Remington."  "Me! Oh, grandpa, I never dreamed of Mr. Guy!" and Madeline blushed half indignantly.  "He's too rich,  too aristocratic, though Sarah said he  didn't  act  one   bit   proud,   and   wad  so pleasant, the servants all worship  him, and Mrs. Noah thinks him good  enough for the Queen of England.  I  shall   think  so,   too,  if  he' lets    you  have the money. How I wish it was  Monday   night,   so   we   could   know-  sure I"  "Perhaps we both shall be terribly  disappointed," suggested grandpa,  but Maddy was more hopeful.  She, at least, would not fail, while  what sho had heard of Guy Remington, the heir of Aikenside, made her  believe that he would accede at once  to her grandpa's  request.  All  that night she  was working to  pay the debt, giving the money herself into the hands of Guy Remington,  whom she had  never seen,  but  who came up in her dreams tlie tall,  handsome-looking   man   she   had    so  often hoard described by Sarah Jones  after her return from Aiken&fde. Even  the  next day,  when,   by  her grandparent's side, Maddy  knelt reverently in the small, timeworn church nt  Honedale,  her  thoughts,  it must   bt*  confessed,   were   wandering   more   to  the to-morrow and Aikenside. than to  the sacred words her lips were uttering. She knew it was wrong, and with  a nervous start would try to bring her  mind back from decimal  fractions to  what   the   minister   was   saying;   but  Maddy was moiid. and  right in the  midst of the Collect,   Aikenside  and  its owner would   rise  before her, together with the wonder how she and  her grandfather would  feel one week  from that Sabbath day. Would the: desired certificate b? hers? or would she  be disgraced for ever and ever by a  rejection?    Would   the   mortgage   be  paid and her grandfather at ease, or  would his'.heart he breaking with the  knowing he must leave what had been  his   home   for  so   many   years?   Not  thus   was  it   with   the   aged  disciple  beside her���������the good old man, whose  white   locks  swept  the   large-lettered  book over which his wrinkled face was  bent, as he joined  in  the responses,  or saidthe prayers whose words had  over _him  so  soothing   an   influence,  carrying his thoughts upward to the  house  not  made  with   hands,   which  he felt assured would one day be his.  Once or twice, it is true, thoughts of  losing the dear old red cottage flitted  across his mind with a keen, sudden  pang, but he put it quickly aside, remembering at the same instant  how  the Father he loved dneth. all. things .

Walking In tho mountains seeins to  bo more destructive to the stockings  thau any other form of ererclse, oven  bicycling.    The change of grades appears to bring special stress upon the  heels and necessitates darning In holiday time,  when  darning Is most obnoxious.   Having had experience with  this, we were delighted to discover at  a drug store some chamois heels which  could  be  slipped over the  stockings  when tramping and saved a great deal  of wear upon them.   These are not always to be found, but they can be  easily made at home If some care Is  taken iu cutting a pattern and carefully fitting it to the person who is to  wear the heeis.   For the pattern cut a  piece   of   paper   five   Inches   square,  marking  it  at  tho   top   aud   bottom.  Fold it across the middle, and on the  fold make a cut an inch and a quarter  deep from each edge.   From the point  thus reached cut a curve to the two  lower corners.   Fold tlie lower corners  over on the outside so that they almost  moot the upper corners.   Fit this to the  heel and when properly shaped cut out  the chamois, stitching It smoothly and  firmly iu form and adding two elastic  bands to reach over the ankle from the  two sets of corners.   There are such  differences in--the sizes of heels that  the pattern must necessarily be somewhat modified for different ages, but  if properly made and carefully worn  these heels are very useful.���������J.

There are enough troubles  in the country already, without having troubJe-makerB from the Motherland."  More little lives    are    lost during  the hot weather months than at any  other time of the year.   In the summer months little ones are the victims of diarrhoea, cholera infantum,  dysentery    and     stomach     troubles.  These come suddenly   and    without  warning, and if a medicine is not at  hand to give promptly the short delay may mean death.

Rankin has the following words  if wisdom In the American Agriculturist concerning the difficult problem  >f rearing chicks designed especially  for development into persistent layers:  V\^ien the chicks first come out of the  shell, I leave them in the incubator till  the last hatched is twenty-four hours  old, then remove to a brooder with a  temperature of 00 degrees, the brooder  floor being first covered with a thin  layer of sand and one inch of cut alfalfa, and give grit and water hvo  hours before feeding. I feed a dry  grain chick food containing 20 per  cent chick grit and 5 per cent small  granulated charcoal. The brooder is  cleaned every day by sifting sand  through a cofuroeal sieve. Beef scraps  are kept before them after they are  four days old. This is their feed till  they are six weeks old, when they are  given free range and are fed but threo  times a day, corn being mixed with  their food, one part cracked corn, oue'  part wheat, three parts ground.oats In  bulk with fine meal sifted out. I always feed iu a litter to keep them  busy.  When they aro four months old, I  feed one part coru, one part wheat,  one part barley and two parts oats  threo times a dny with coarser charcoal in the same proportion or fed In  hoppers always before them. At five  mouths old I begin feeding one part  corn, one part wheat, one part barley  and two parts oats three times a day  with coarser charcoal in the same proportion, or fed in hoppers always before them, with green stuff of some  sort always near. Steamed cut alfalfa  and cabbage aro best in winter. In  rearing laying chickens It is most important to keep them growing all the  time and always busy. Nothing over  has been or will be profitable brought  up iu Idleness.

It takes but a  minute or two each day, and with tho  occasional assistance of kerosenr lice  seldom cause any trouble.  Remove the nest boxes and fixtures  from the houses and fairly saturate  them with kerosene, then go inside  and with a spray pump send the kerosene into every crack and crevice. It  does noble work, and your hens will  bless you for it.  Another good precaution is to use insect powder liberally in the nest boxes.  It will kill such vermin as are lodged  In the feathers of the hens."  If the young chicks arc drooping, examine their heads, and tho chances nre  that a large gray louse will be found.

The cause of wry tails Is obscure, but  Is attributed tc an Injury to the hip or  some part of tbe rear of the body,  which causes a deformity. Examine a  wry tailed chicken after dressing it  and you will usually find, we think,  that It Is a deformity of some part of  the body, usually of the hip, that  causes it. It has been argued that  such deformities are caused by overcrowding in the brooder or being  crowded into a cramped position for  several hours when the bones are soft  and plastic. This, however, Is theory  only.  Kerosene In the Poultry Yard.  For birds which have scaly. legs,  sponging the legs with a saturate solution of cnido naphthalene flakes In  kerosene is good.

As usual,  )uck bad 'telephoned Elinor asking her  to go'automoblliug with bun, and, not  nt all us usual, she had said she would  not. ��������� Her refusal was unpremeditated  and almost asstnuch of a surprise to  uerbclf as It'was to Jack, but sober  second thought seemed to justify it.  It was foolish, so argued Elinor' to  herself as she hung up tbe receiver, to  let Jack take so much for granted, to  let him think she was always ready,  ,rs a mutter of course, to answer his  heck and call! She .would show him a  ,chlng or two.

Goodby."  * Elinor chipped her hands and gave  lierself a little squeeze of congratulation. f  Half au hour later, her little round  chin tilted saucily above tho big blue  uow of her 'gauzy veil, Elinor stood  waiting on the porch, a picture of pert  ucss and pretlluess. ^  At the "honk, honk," of an approaching automobile she ran quickly down  the steps to greet Vernon Norris, but  co her astonish merit the car did not  .stop, and, looking- -after it curiously,  she discovered that It was not Vernon,  after all, but Jack, and���������could she believe her- eyes?���������he. was not alone!  There was a funny little tight feeling  about Elinor's heart that she didn't  care to analyze. She turned her back  ou the vanishing apparition of Jack,  and there on the top of the hill, like  a coming event that had cast its shadow before It (alas, that it wns such a  corporeal shadow!), she saw Vernon's  car looming into sight.  Anyway,. reflected Elinor,������ if Vernon's auto wasn't such a beauty as  Jack's, It was still an auto, and if  Vernon wasn't, perhaps, as handsome  as Jack, he was still a man, and when  It "came to a matter of 'comparison, n  man far more solicitous of her happiness. Jack had a way of spinning  through the country without, apparently, the least consciousness of her  presence beside him. Vernon, on the  other hand, was always on the alert to  rescue the wayward end *bf her veil,  to Inquire for her comfort and to ask  what speed best pleased her present  mood. With him she herself, not the  machine, was the center of hlR  thoughts. )  As a result of these reflections, Elinor greeted Vernon w'ith an unusually  winsome smile and extended her hand  with charming gracibusnessr a" favor  which that young man, most naturally, flattered himself was stimulated  by his own irresistible powers of attraction.  Elinor followed up the.cordiality of  her welcome with such a chatter of  merry talk as they went flyiug  through the country and seemed so  radiantly happy, that Vernon, bringing the machine to a sudden slowdown, simultaneously with his inspiration, decided to learn his fate then  and there.  It proved most literally a popping  of the question. His declaration was  cut short with a sound as of spontaneous combustion. The noise, together  with Vernon's unexpected proposal,  took Elinor off her feet, both mentally  and physically. As she sprang up  Vernon caught her to him.  "It's all right, dear," he murmured,  with extravagant tenderness. "You're  not hurt; only frightened," and he lifted her veil so that he might look into  her face.  Elinor freed herself with effort  "No," she said, sadly, "I'm not hurt  -and I'm not frightened." She felt  suddenly an Indescribable shrinking  from the man. He had been too quick  to take advantage of the situation.  Had It been Jack, he��������� ,  Vernon interrupted her train of  thought by shouting to some men In  the distance for help. They did not  bear him.  "Awfully sorry," he said finally,  "but I'm afraid I'll have to go across  the Holds for help. There's a farmhouse over there. I'm very much like  llumpty Dumpty. you see. * I don't  know how to pat myself together  again." (Elinor saw, but somehow  was not amused.) "Will you be timid  here alone?"  "Not at all." sho answered firmly.  Ignoring the sentimental look in his  ���������eyes.--          ,.:- ,.-.-.,:-....:..���������..  "I won't bo long," ho assured her  as he Jumped out of the car. "Stay  Just where you are and make yourself  comfortable.   The car won't budge."  After Vernon had disappeared from  sight, Elinor, not at all confident. In  spite of his assurance, as to what the  Inconstant auto might do next jumped  out and perched herself on the post of  a nearby fence.  She was a most bewitching little  vision as she sat there, her;fawn colored coat outlined against the green  meadow background, and her filmy  von, which she had loosened,-Joatlng  out airily iu the breeze as if on; its  way to Join the clouds In the blue sky  above It.

The staccato breaking of the'Silence  nearly caused Elinor to lose her balance. She gripped the top rail of the  fence hard,and watched tlie wild thing  whiz bf. Suddenly it began to slow  down, then it turned around and started back again. Jack's car! Her heart  gave a bound of happy relief.1 Then It  sank Blckcningly ns again she noticed  some one beside him���������n woman, but  so heavily veiled that Elinor could not  see her face. * >  Jack brought the machine to a standstill, beside its'disabled contemporary,  jumped out nnd looked about for its  possible owner. He could scarce believe his- senses when he1 saw Elinor  perched In solitury misery ou the fence.  "Why, Elinor." he cried In astonishment, "what bus happened?"   "  "Nothing much, "thank you, Mr. Williams," answered _ Elinor distantly.  "Just a slight accident, Mr. Norri3'  has gone across the fields to get some  assistance. He will be back in a minute. ' Don't stop," I beg of you.V  But Jack was used to havjng his own  way and was already underneath Vernon's machine investigating the cause  of the trouble.  Meanwhile between Elinor and tho  veiled hidy In the~otbcr car there wu3  an exchange of furtive glances, but  none of civilities.  "She's all right now," exclaimed  Jack, emerging soon. "Just got tired  of going so fust nnd thought she'd  give you two a little surprise. Which  way did you say Norris went?"  Before .Elinor could reply Jack had  run up the road u short distance and  stood looking intently through his field  glasses at a speck of a figure hurrying  toward them.  "That's Norris now,'.' he called back  to the veiled lady. "Say, Nora,* sup;  pose you get Into his car and run up  to meet him." It will give him a jolly  good surprise to be rescued by his own  machine. I'll stay with Miss Kendall."  xThe veiled lady answered with. a  cherry "All right, Jack," that made Elinor wince and shifted with easy ngil  Ity from one car to the other.'  As soon as tbe machine had a good  start Jack,' with a leap and a bound,  made for the fence. He lauded with a  jump directly in front of Elinor* and  stood looking up at her wistfully.  "On which side of the fence are you  going to jump, dear?" he asked gently.  "On the other." replied,Elinor, with  a little gasp.  But she did not. for Jack took her  in his strong arms and, heedless of her  protestations, ran with her to his machine, which he set going at full speed.  When Elinor hud regained her equilibrium and her breath, she assumed  an injured expression wholly out of  keeping with the tumult of joy In her  heart  "Who Is the other woman?" she asked frigidly, though what did it matter now?  Jack laughed heartily.  "My cousin Nora and yours to be,  dear.    I had to get some one to ride  with me, you know."  ��������� Elinqrjooked up at him_ shyly._ , __ ���������  "Do you think they'lfcatcli up with  us?" she asked, her eyes sparkling with  happiness.

She wasn't having a bit of a good time  with me. But suppose they should  overtake us, Elinor," continued Jack,  with mock anxiety, "-would you like to  change back agaiu?"  "No, Jack," replied Elinor softly.  "I've made my Jump, and I'm on your  side of the fence forever."  Sore, hot, aching; or blistered feet are cooled and  healed by Zam-Buk.

But amusement Is not  the sole reason for this ceremony. It  comes from an old Chinese legend,  and if a Chinaman did not fly his kite  on the given day he would rest uneasily for the remainder of bis life In fear  that misfortune would overtake his  family. The legend runs that many  years ago a certain Chinaman was  warned in a dream that fl misfortune  would come to hlsi home on a certain  day. Accordingly on that day he repaired to,an adjacent hill and amused  himself and his family by flying a  kite while'Iie was waiting for the disaster.

I was advised to trv your liniment to allay the irritation, and  did so.

E.  -   The Unsociable Young Napoleon.-  At dinner during the voyage to'Cor-,  slca, to which my father invited the"  'passengers who included some officers  of his'regiment and the two Corsicans,  he requested an officer, M. de Belloc,  to call a young man who was wearing  the uniform of the military school and"  reading at the end of the boat. The  young man refused. M. de Belloc  came'back irritated nnd said to my  father: "I should like to'throw the  unsociable little fellow Into the sen.  He has an unpleasant faco. Will you  grant me permission, colonel?"  . "No," said my father, laughing,  "and I am not of your opinion. His  face shows character, and I am sure  that he will he'heard of some day."  The unsociable fellow was the future  Emperor Napoleon. Belloc has related  this scene to me at least ten times,  adding, with a sigh, "Ah, If the colonel  had only allowed me to throw him into  the sea he would not be ,turning the  world upside down today."���������From  Memoirs of Comtesse de Bolgne.

I used to  be a pretty good bass singer, but I  can't sing worth a cent "uow."  "Does learning to play a horn spoil  the voice?" asked his next door neighbor.  "It did mine."  "Uow do you account for it?"  "I don't know how to account for It.  Strains the vocal cords perhaps. AH I  know Is that I blew my voice out  through the mouthpiece of my cornet."  "Did you have a good voice?"  "Everybody said so."  "Then It's a great pity you ever  learned to play a horn," replied his  neighbor, r-haklng his head sadly.

Most physicians today will tell you  never to take any liquid, and least of  all water, during meals. There are  however, two sides to tho qnesclon.  Those with a tendency to gout oi  other diseases arising from excess of  uric ncid should avoid liquids uuti)  two hours, at least, after eating.  For those without such a tendency  there Is no harm in drinking a moderate amount at the end of the meal.  There Is, therefore, sound reason  back of the custom of keeping She  coffee for the last course. Even when  this prandial drinking is permissible,  one should avoid excess. A little cold  water held In the mouth is often just  as refreshing as if gallons of the liquid  bad been consumed.  The great American fault���������or one of  them���������is the consumption of enormous  quantities of ice water, which is really  a deadly beverage and not fit for civil  Ized man to drink. "I emphasize the  "civilized," for no savage would do  anything so stupid as to chill and  paralyze the muscles of his stomach lathe belief that he is cooling his skin.  The rule, then, is a little water  If you are healthy and your stomach  Is normal, not too cold, and taken at  tbe end of the meal. 'And thus will  you avoid-the countless ills to which  most drinkers during meals are heirs.  An Expert Marksman.  The terms "sharpshooter." "expert  marksman." etc., which have distinguished the classes of military riflemen  are often puzzling to those not familiar  with rifle practice. To become a  marksman one must make 98 out of  a possible 150 at 200. 300 and 500  yards.-- The sharpshooter must get  ICO out of 200 at 200. 300, 500 and* COO  yards, besides doing well enough In  skirmish to bring his total to 225, or  two-thirds of the possible score. An  expert must do all this and Jlso score  40 out of 50 at 300 yards and 35 out  of 50 at 1,000 yards. The latter distance Is more than half a mile and  the   bullseye   looks   mighty   small.  Cakes and  Sausages In Germany.  "Germany is the land of variety in  sausages and cakes,'^. said William  George Bruce. "When I made my visit  to that country recently I took occasion to eat at restaurants in practically every city I came to. I am not  stretching it a bit when I say that In  one restaurant in Dresden there were  200 varieties of sausages on the bill of  fare.  "The same holds good of cakes. You  enter a restaurant or a bakery In which  coffee is served. Tbe obliging -waiter  will set before you a specially designed  cake holder on which the several varieties are placed in convenient tiers,  so that you pick out any kind you  want without disarranging the whole.  "There Is another feature of restaurant customs in Germany that struck  me as out of the ordinary. While perhaps a dozen cake's are set before you  to choose from, you only pay for the  exact number you cat. When you are  done wilh your luncheon the waiter  will count up what is remaining and  charge you  for the difference."  the present horse and wagon service,  while the mails could be handled  in less than half the time now required for the purpose.

One of my  neighbors tried the experiment of fattening dry cows on potatoes. Unfortunately two of his cattle choked on  them. Becoming alarmed by their condition and having heard of relieving  choketl cattle by pushing the obstruction down the throat, he took a whip-  stock nnd proceeded to help the cow  swallow the potatoes.

Adam has been dead many years  and  number.-, think that hh waa-ho  gentleman, altln'Oiig  a  member'of  the   lirst    families,     because   .he  blamed h'i.^ downfall upon a wornaii.  Uownver,    Adam    was outspoken,  even if a coward, aiid   right today,  when men do  wrong,   wi.������o  detectives  look   for   the- woman.    lie-  side    nearly   ow-vy   act   of   man,  good or bad, there stands a woman.  She is always in  tho  play whether  you  seo  her  or  not.    Blessed indeed is the man fwho  has a noble  woman for a  partner, and doubly  damned is he who ties up ijo something   that   is   only    a   Mend   in  fcniinino garb. A woman can place  a man upon the pinnacle of joy or  shove, him   into  the lowest  basement   of   Gehenna.    Half of  the  women on   earth  ar'n  crazy,   and-  the balance are angels.    However,  there' is  no  way  of getting away  from   them   and   being . satisfied.  They  are  with   us  when   we are  born, by our side in   the  rain and  sunshine of life, and forgotten, indeed, is the man  at  whose grave  some   woman   does   not   drop   a  flower moistened with tears.    Love  is the grand  passion  of  life,  and  ^ho'Stokes are high.    lie who loses  in the game feels worse  than  30  cents, ami often he  who wins in a  short time hasn't  HO  cents.    But  no matter how often  man  loses, if  he does not die from  the. shock, it  is not long before he  iri  out  prospecting for another  Juliet.

T.   Lowery   in  Saturday Sunset.  Philosophy of Rest.  Get out of the world currents of  hurry and worry.  Take, a rest.  It isn't necessary, to go,on a vacation to do so.  You can do it right now, where  you arc. It dues not matter-  whether' you are washing dishes,  working at a desk, hoeing corn,  cutting wood, running a typewriter or working at one of a  hundred other things.  You can b^gin now to let sortie  of the kinks out of your muscles  and give them a needed rest.  The first necessity "is to get the  strain out of your . mind���������get the,  hurry out. If you can get the"  hurry out of your mind you will  find that much of your .worry-ha-i  also departed, and then you will  begin to be ready togivejjyour tired  straining muscles a rest.  The most of us form the habit-  of worry soon after reaching the  adult age. The habit never leaves  us while life lasts unless wc make  a special attempt to oust it and deliberately -and persistently- cultivate repose.  Tho hurry habit must be broken  up, we must get outside'the rots of  hurry and'worry which we have  formed, if- we aro ever to lake  from our tired nerves and muscles  some of the unnatural strain which  ha/* been imposed upon them.  Just watch yourself ior a few  moments. We will.suppose that  you enter a street car. How do  you- sit while, riding? Straight  and still', with a kink in the small  of your back ? Arms stilt"? Legs  .stiff?  Orator- and Newspaper. "'7  Com pa re, Ihe orator, one ofthe  noblest vehicles' for the diffusion  of Ihougbt, .with the newspaper,  and you .may gain a.faint glimpse  of the libiipn'tous power of the latter. The orator speaks but to a  few hundred, the newspaper addresses millions. The- words of  the. orator may "die .in the air, the  language "of,' the newspaper is  stamped ori tabids" imperishable  as'.-ma.i'ble. -The arguments of the  oral or may follow each other so  rapidly that the majority of the  audience may si niggle iu a net of  ratiocination���������the reasoning of the  newspaper may be scanned at leisure without fear of perplexity.  The passion ofthe orator influences  an aspfnbly, Ihe feeling of a newspaper a eoniinenti The orafn" is  for an edifice, the newspaper for  the world���������the one shine** for an  honiyC'.e oiher for all lime. The  orator may-be compared to lightning, which flashes over ft valley  for a moment, but it leaves it  again ih darkness ; the newspaper  to a sun hl-zing steadily over the  whole ,eaii:i, and ''fixed on tho  basis of its own eternity." ..Printing has been happily deQned "the  art- whieh preserves all ��������� arts."  Printing makes the oiator more'  than an orator. It catches up the  dying words, and breathes into  them the breath "of life." It is the'  gallery .through which the orator  thunders in the ears of-ages. He  leans from the tomb over the cradle  of rising generations.
