d INTERESTING NEWS. 0
^ By F. P. KOPTA. 0
On afternoon Apolena came home
later than usual and astonished us
all with the news she had heard from
the old ladles who kept the "delica-1
cles store." The sweet Seraphiene
was to marry her Lazar, who had won
a fortune at the "little lottery," it
wns said.
?u aown, Apolena, and tell us all
about It," said her father, "and do
not flirt about like a mosquito."
Thus admonished, Apolena sat
down on on* ot the rickety chairs and
drawing a long sigh, began her tale,
to which we all listened in breathless
silence.
Seraphiena and Lazar, as all the
town knew, loved one another to dia1
traction. But yjere were objections,
\ na there aj^v;iys are. Lazar was a
chimney sweep, and nennlless. Spr
aphiena had a hundred florins, a cow,
and a yearling pig. She could look
for a better match than poor Lazar,
in spite of his curly hair and good
looks, said her father, and he kicked
the young fellow out of his inn whenever
he met him.
Naturally this did not help matters
much. Seraphiena and Lazar met hehind
trees, wept together in friendly
shops, and klsrod one another unknown
to their parents behind the
paternal doors. Still things looked
hopeless for the clovntprl nntr tui
heaven smiled upon them. Lazar had
a beautiful dream!
Here Apolena stopred to take
breath.
"It was a lovely dream (hat Lnzar
had, and he thought to himself, "Why
should T dream buch a beautiful scene
and near morning? Such a dream
was not seji^-to me for nothing.' So
being n '^mdble lad, he went to see
old pai,.- Mama Barbora, who was
skilled it) such matters, and related
his vision."
he did not go to tlie la r*
dies who to"ep the delicacies store.
They are great hands for hunting out
numbers in the Snar (dream book)."
"They are not friends of his. They
t tried to persuade JJeraphiena to marry
a glass blower, a sort of cousin to'
one or their brothers', wife. Any way
lie went to Barbora.
" 'Ah, my gold boy,' said the old
woman. 'Your guardian angei stood
by you when you had that lovely
dream. Make a vow to burn a candle,
while I go In the next room for my
urcniii iiouk.
"Of course Lazar took her advice,
and promised the saint a candle of
two pounds' weight if ho should win.
" 'Mother, If I should win, I will
buy you a red skirt, such as you never
saw in your life,' said Lazar, and
they went at it to hunt up the numbers."
"lie may he dirty, hut he is devout
and kindhearted," said the grandfath
vi, Diucwuys at ivuney. "A
-candlo for a saint, a. red skirt for
granny. That is what I call well
mannered. I know of lads who, if
they won four florins at the little
lottery, would not buy their loving
relations an ounce of snuff."
"You are right, grandfather," said
Matey, with a grir.iace meant for a
smile. "And I have oven known people
to win the four florins, and to get
dead &runk, and to have to be carried
borne on a wheelbarrow by their loving
relations. Oh, yes, I have known
such eases!"
"Drat you both! Must I si? fnrnvnr
on this chair? Lot me ro on with
my story, will you? Tho old woman
came hack with the Snar, and between
them both they fixed the numbers."
"What was the dream about, Apolena?"
asked her father.
"It was about a holy bishop, and

gof him to wash himself, but he went

"Perhaps now that he 1;; so rich, ho
will not marry Seraphiena," said tho
grandfather. "He can make a better
match/'
"Like enough the host of the Gobien
Calf thought so, for he was one of
the first to catcii him In the street, J
they told me."
" 'Come with me, Lazar, my boy,'
ho said. "You and I wer? always
fond of a Joke together. Come to the
Inn; we will drink to your health,'
and ho led him r way."
"What a world this Is!", said Matey,
suddenly.
"It Is a very good world," snapped
his grandfather, "if only there were
less fools in it, say I."
"They say," went on Apolena, "that
when Seraphiena hoard the news, instead
of laughing with joy, she just
blubbered, and that when Lazar saw
her at it, he also went to weeping,
and then those two precious idiots
wept away on a bench tide by side,
instead of being glad."
j "Well, perhaps It was their way of
I being glad," said Matey.
"Was there ever such a dunce as
I that boy?" aid his mother. "Who
ever weeps when they are glad I
should like to know?"
"Ho only says that out of perversion!
He is like a pig?pull him ny
the ear one way. if you wish him to
go the other."
Here Matey took the hint, and beI
gan grunting like a pig.
"Well, perhaps, after all," said Apolena,
speaking lound, "Lazar may
marry her."
"Of course the host oZ the Golden
Calf will stick to him if possible,
now he is rich," said her father, kicking
Matey to n\ake him stop grunting.
"Well, for my part," said Apolena,
"I wish Seraphlena luck. She is a
good girl, if lanky and marked with
the smallpof, and she had scoldings
and slappings enough before Lazar
had that lucky dream. I hope that
they may got married."
"And still there are people who ridicule
dreams, and abuse the little lot
very, Hciiu nor latner, meditatively.
"What will you," said Apolena.
"There are still people who believe
that the world is round like an apple.
and that the people on the other
side walk about, with their heads, and
have their legs in the air! Anil others,
like that professor who came
here hunting vermin, who told us we
came probably from fishes. There are
lots of fflols in this world, and one
has to hear a lot of nonsense every
day. The besi plan is to let it go in

Apolena got up, and began scraping
potatoes for the evening soup.
Baltimore's Oldest People.
.. . . _
liy MHvS. 11. C. MlliliRK, in Leslie's.
Baltimore has two remarkable centenarians
among her residents?a
n.an and a woman. The man is a
tall, heavy-set Russian, who is not
only the oldest man in the Monumental
City, but very likely the oldest
in the United States; for Louis Abraham
Kallinsky is nearing his one
hundred and sixteenth birthday. The
other is Mrs. Susan Askey, a woman
who was born in Maryland and who
has spent her entire, life of one hundred
and four years as a resident of
that State. An interview with these
old people brought forth many interesting
reminiscences, for both of them
still retain all their faculties and recall
with amazing vividness the incidents
of three-quarters of a century
Mrs. Askey spoke of the many
changes in her native city and the
growth of her chosen religion, for she
is a devout Methodist Episcopalian
and has been a member of that sect
for eighty-two years. Up to her ninety-eighth
year sh" was a regular attendant
at church worship and took
an active part in church work. Today
she can give, you the names of her
pastors for the last seventy-five years.
Last year the was taken to church on
her birthday in an automobile. She
declared that she liked motoring and

Mrs. Asluy remembers nothing of
the War of 1812, save that at Its outbreak
she was sent to Frederick, Md.,
where she remained with an uncle
until It was over. She then returned
to Baltimore and was educated at
St. Patrick's Catholic School.

"Oh, no, you wouldn't, James," retorted
the sweet girl graduate. "The

"Oh, welt," rejoined tho young

Sod llnsins For Trees.
mi- * *
i ue mnuacapc gardeners of one
of New York City's parkways have
devised an attractive way of protecting
the base of *t?3e-trnnks by arranging
a square border of sod, two feet
wide, around each one of the trees
bordering the boulevard. In this way
the soil between tho border and the
tree-trunk may always be kept loose,
allowing tho moisture of rains to : >ak
into the ground and nourish the'roots.
Were it not for this sod basin tho
gravel path, coming close to the tree,
would, in time, become firmly trodden
down, causing*the tree to suffer ac|

The Shoulders of (he Horse.
Coming now to what is meant by
; "liarnessy" shoulders iu ;< saddler, the
term is more or less erroneous, for
. the reason that the position of the
J shoulders should be oblique in luui
ness as well as in saddle hor. -:i,
i Those who use the. term moan to con*
! vey the idea that the shoulder;; arc
[ more or loss upright and the withers
more or less thick and meaty. This
formation, as already detailed, presupposes
a short neck and a stilted
way of going, both of which are very
had faults in a saddler. A certain
amount of jerk-and-slam net ion nviv
go with straight shoulders, but all
the most accurate actors in the highstepping
classes have possessed sloping
shoulders; indeed, a very decided
slope is necessary to enable any horse
to show thr> correct sort of action,
which may he described as that the
fore foot should apparently be following
the circumference of a rolling
wheel. Forest King was the greatest
actor we have ever had in this country.
Anyone who remembers the set
of his shoulders will grasp the point
sought to be made instantly, when it
Is stated that the truest and best action
is never associated with straight
shoulders. At that, however, much
strjiighter shoulders will do for
ordinary harness uses than for the
saddle, for in tho leather they havo
not to sustain the superimposed
weight of the rider. Hence the application?or
rather misapplication of
the term "harnessy" in describing
or discussing the shoulders of saddle ;

Hard Milkers.
Dr. David Roberts, tho Wisconsin
Stoto Veterinarian, writes us on tills
subject:
A cow or heifer with a nice, large,
well developed udder with four good
slzo teats placed squarely upon same,
seems like a source of pleasure, providing
that, they arc easy milkers, but

draw out the natural quantity. The
cow or heifer will then .s<jon show the
cffect3 of this by drying vii> on her
milk. In this way many a valuable
cow has become practically worthless
as a milk producer.
Hard milking, in cows or luifers
can be positively overcome in a short
period of time and in a very economical
way, not by the uso of the milking
tube, biu by the use o? the teat
pi UKThe
teat should be washed with an
antiseptic solution, the teat plug
should be dipped in a like solution,
then in a little ointment and passed j
into the point of the teat, and being
self-retaining, should be permitted to
remain in the teat from one milking
to another. In this manner hard
milkiifg can be made a thing of tlio

human life, that calamity will neither

have endeavored to reconcile us to

that most of our evils are made afIIlot

National Crusade.
It lias been suggested tliat the Good
Roads Board of the American Automobile
Association co-operate with
the National Grange to hold thousand:;
of good road meetings throughnn<
fhn nnii<H..v !l l.nt. ./ ! .lon.l /I I r.
hold al least one meeting in each of
tho 300 affiliated clubs of (he American
Automobile Association and 0110
each in the thousands of affiliated
bodies of the National Grange. The
purpose of these met-tirigs is to arour-o
public sentiment for the* enactment of
comprehensive highway laws by tho
various State Legislatures and tho
Federal Congress and the appropriating
of liberal funds by town, county.
State and Federal authorities.
Much has been said about the details
of construction, but it is believed
that these may safely be lrfl to com
potent highway engineers, who should
ho employed to efioiently and economically
supervise tho < xpendituro
of road appropriations. It is doubtful
if tho discussion at road conventions
of the various types of road construction
is of inn oh value, as the time of
such meeting could doubtless be more
profitably expended in discussing in
detail desirable highway legislation
and the size of appropriations.
In order to create sentiment for
comprehensive highway laws It is
necessary that the advoca's In any
particular locality of such statutes
clearly understand the kind of law
desired, and b familiar with its dotails
and assured thai it is drawn to
meet the conditions of the particular
locality whore ii. is urged.
A highway law of any State should
provide for the improve incut, maintenance
and repair of every mile of
highway in the (.' unmonwcaltii outside
cities and incorporated villages.
Experience in some States lias shown
| that it is wise to divide the highways
into three classes, sometimes do:;oribed
as State, county and town
roads, the State roads constituting
approximately four per cent, of the
tfilto mil age and being those high|
wnys which connect the main centres
of population of the several conn
