Keeping 11 Diary.
"Wll, mother," wtlil Farmer Wljiglns
on Saturday morulnir, with his diary opened
before him, "what did I do Inst Monday.1"
"Di'nr 1110. John, "answered MrH.WIgiflim,
"I do wish to KoodnuMi you'd write In yout

morula you went to the village to git the

"I-don't-kuow," said Mr. Wiggins, do
cctedly scnttchtng his head. Then he
irightcned a little and exclaimed, "But I
know I went somewhere that mornin,
'cause when I wuz hitchln Molly I see n rip
In my pants leg nud eomo in for you to sow
It, and you wua waahtu."
"Well, B'poso you my you went for that
seed that mornin," said Mrs. Wigglus.
"It'll be near enough." ,),.
"Well, what else did I do Monday "
asked Mr. Wiggins lu a helpless tonu. And
so the dialogue went on.
One evening James Sidney and his daugh
ter Mary called on tho Wlgglnaua.
"I wuz settln In tho house alone," began
Mr. Sidney, "me and Maty, and us the chore
wui done and I'd writ in the diary for threa

Tho old man turned his beaming face to

it, but I was anxious for him to do so,
thinking he would find It a pleasure. So
he does, and yet he also seems to look upon
it as so much work, and In spite ot nil I can
say he often persists In writing ahead"
"But how kin he when things ain't hap
pened?" demanded Mrs. Wiggins.
"Oh, I jest kinder think of what I'm go
In to do, and write It down's If I'd done it,"
said Mr. Sydney. "And if I don't do it, 1
write across the leaf, 'Didn't do It,' or some
thing like that."
When the visitors had gone, Mr. Wigglni
said, with a little chuckle;
"Say, mother, why ain't that n good Idee,
writlnaheadf It 'ud save lots of bothei
for you, and 1 guess I'd git things about an
near right as I do now."
"Well, I guess you ain't a-goin to try any
slch notion as thnt, Jbhn Ilenryl You keep
right along jest as you nlwus hev, and I'll
never say another wont 'f I hev to think
all night what you done a week behind."

"You say you can wrltesborthaudl" said
the city editor.
"I can. sir," replied the applicant for a
iob. "When it comes to shorthand, I don't
;nuckle down to anybody."
"Have you bad any experience in report
ing a meeting!"
"Lots of It. I can take a full report of
tho proceedings in shorthand and put it in
shape for the printers afterward. That's
child's play for me."
"Heport any kind of meeting, can yout"
"H'ral" said the city editor, "there Is n
sort of convention at Saddler's hall In the
next block. You may go and report the
proceedings. Write the speeches out In
Tho applicant for a place on tho city ed

away. And he never came back. When
he got to Saddler's hall, he found ho had

pork pie straw, with n lace fall all
around tho edgo, and n big alsntlnn bow
of cream colored laco sat on tho top for
solo trimming. A red anchor was also
worked in at tho foot of tho dress.
The other was of bluo nnd whito striped
serge, with a band of whito sorgo at tho
bottom and a zigzag braid around tho
middloof tho skirt. Tho blouso waist
and balloons wero of tho same, with the
belt, forearms and enormous capo collar
of the serge, that part in tho front being
barred with bluo ribbon of tho aaino
shado as the darkest part of tho bluo in
tho dress material. Thero was a glazed
sailor hat with a dark bluo band. Tho
anchors on tho collar wero worked in
black, picked out with gold. Tho hair
was worn loose and bouffanto.
This manner of wearing tho hair looso
and flowing is gaining fast. Those whose
hair is naturally curly have the greatest
satisfaction now, but others curl theirs

pongee silk frock, with tho baby waist
smocked at the neck and waist. On tho
skirt and around the arms was a trim
ming of white lace over orange silk. Tho
puffed sleeves ended at the elbow, leaving
tho plump arms bare, and the neck was
also cut out square. The hat was of black
straw, with a bow of maize ribbon and
two shaded plumes from maize to brown.
She looked a very picture.
The other wore a whito serge dress
with three flounces to the skirt and each
scalloped out and bound with baby rib
bon in bluo. Tho waist was bebe, with
a full sash of baby bluo surah, reaching
onco and a half around, ending in front
