DOLEFUL BALLAD OF A HERMIT.
BY r. ?. B.
There wns a Hermit mild anil goo<X,
Who owned a modest little c</t
Close to the borders of a wood,
And happy was his lot.
80 kind he was (o bird and beast,
They loved him as their clearest friend;
They often shared his frugal feast,
And he the sick would tend.
One night upon his rottage door
There came a most emphatic knock,
'And still another one. before
His hand could reach the lock.
]
He opened, nnd to his amaze
There stood a little brownish bird
iWith head aslant and jaunty gaze,
Who said, "At last you've heard!"
"I'll take a shelter for the night/'
Said he, excruciating hold,
"There is no other hut in sight,
Besides, it's rather cold."
The gentle Hermit stared aghast,
So saucy wns his little guest,
Eut snrend an adequate repast.
Aiul bade him take his rest.
The bird just winked his beady eye.
Said he. "My friend, I've come to stay;
I'll build a nest or two near by,
Aud never move away."
And so it was. Before you'd think
Some hundreds of his cousins mustered;
The Hermit could not sleep a wink.
So loud they screamed and blustered.
Until at last thev drove him out,
Which grieved his neighbors to the
marrow,
!Aml long ere this you've guessed, no doubt,
This Person was au English Sunrrow.

When Pa Kicked Over the Traces
I By GERTRUDE G. BLAISDELL.
Ma looks out of the window, fanning
herself vigorously with her blue
checked gingham apron.
"It beat the Dutch," she says to
Arvylla, the younger daughter. "It
does beat the Dutch how your Pa
tramps over to the neighbor's for
water. Here's our cistern full and all
we need is drinking water brought,
and by actual count that's the eleventh
time he has fetched a pail today."
"Why, Ma," says Arvylla, as she
drops the pea pods In the wide basket,
and glances down the path at her
lather as he plods along between the
banks cf blossoming roses. "Why,
Ma, we don't drink no eleven palls of
water a day.
"Lf.nd sakes alive, Arvylly, of!
course we don't; he jlst pours it out
and says ho thinka lin'il
Xre3h water. I'm afraid, I'm afraid,
!Arvylly, that something dretful ails
your pa. Now his consin, Sallic
Brown, her that was Sallie Perkins,
died with some such an ailment, and
that is jist the way she acted, was always
thinkin' about fresh water,
would drink a hull pail at a time, so
they said."
i The tears were oo'ursing down Ma's
imuciu iuee aud Arvylla looked up
ecared and white. "Oh, Ma," she
gasps, "Don't."
Meanwhile, Pa, the object of their
concern, plods alo?ig the path and
into tho yard of their neighbor.
Thoughts and Impulses which he
had always before*-;tieen stranger
surge through Pa's gentle breast.
Heretofore life has held for him only
his "wimmenfolks." Ma and the
girls have been tho sum and substance
of his existence. When a
few years before they had decreed
that the old farm should be sold and

"Ma knows best," he said.
What if out behind the barn with no
one to see but old Rover, a few tears
had trickled down tlie withered old
cheeks. The "wimmenfolks" had
never known. He had said good-by
to the dear old farm where his whole
life had been spent, to the cows and
horses, the lambs and calves. No one
had known the cost to tlie poor old
man. No 0110 unless it was Rover
who looked up in his evos in such a
sympathetic way that Pa felt he understood,
even if Ma and the girls
<lid not. Poor Rover, town had been
too much for the farm dog and the
eyrlnga bush had blossomed over his
b??To uuw xor uvo seasons.
Four weeks ago when Pa had gone
to the neighbor's for a pail of water,
there, In the woodshed, curled up heHide
their savage little mother, were
eix of the plumpest, most winning
fox terrier puppies possible to imagine.
That was the beginning. The
puppies wero very friendly and soon
would scamper to meet him, growling
and barking and jumping about
him In delight and Pa enjoyed the
frolic even better than they.
"Better take one, Mr. Perkins,"
aald the neighbor pleasantly. But
Ma and the girls had instantly vetoed
such a possibility when Pa had
timidly suggested it.
"What, a puppy trackin' ovor my
clean floors, weU, I guess not,"
| gasped Ma.
< > 0*1 day when Pa went over there
v were only five bright-eyed, frisky
puppies left. Tho next day Fatty was
gone. To-day there is only one, but
the brightest and best of the lot
thinks Pa as he grabB llttlo Spotty
Up. "Oh, SpOttV. StlOftv I onn't
you go, I can't," he groaned. Then
something very llko a twinkle
gleamed in the old man's eyes, and
he muttered tremulously: "I'll do It,
II will, I'll kick over the traces this
once."
If the "wlmmonfolks" had worried
over him before they wero in agony
about him now. His peculiar desire
for fresh water gives place to many
new but equally startling vagariea.

down to an unusually good dinner
I aud the old man has prepared the
meat and vegetables for eating to ?uddenly
push back his plate, declaring
that he feels "porely" and cannot oat
unless he carries his dinner out of
tfoors. "Seems like the smell of Ibo
roses and slch makes things mora
tasty," he murmurs.
"Why, sure, father, dear," says
Arvylla the first timo this happens.
"well set the table out under thoJ
apple tree to-morrow If you can eat !
better there." Her father Bhakea his
head, "I want to eat alone," he says, j
shortly.
So they watch him nearly every <
day as ho potters toward 'he barn
with his plate. "And he do.i't even
take a fork," sobs Ma. "He must
eat with hi* jack knife."
As fall draws near the old man
grows frailer and thinner, and one
morning does not get up as usual,
but lies so still that Ma, with a great j
catch at her heart, thinks he must bo |
dead. But he is only ill, so ill that ;
for days and weeks ho lies as 0110
already beyond the borderland. The
dpVntml nui'cinir r>f flm "irlmmn..
folks" wins in the end, however, and
one clear, crisp day in November, Pa
opens liis eyes and knows them.
Knows that Ma is holding his hand
just as tenderly as she did so long
ago when they were first wedded;
knows that it is Arvylla who drops
the soft kiss on his forehead. Even
as the peace of it all soothes him a
wild fear and horror seizes him.
Spotty! Just at that moment something
wriggles at the foot of the bed
and Pa glances down?there curled
ui), fatter, saucier, more irresistible
than ever, on Ma's best white counterpane
lies Spotty, and as though
he understands, he opens his eyes
and with a little yelp of joy wriggles
up to Pa and snuggles against him.
"Ma," quavers Pa, "I hadn't ought
tn n flnnn it "
"You keep still," sobs Ma, 0110
hand holding fast to Pa's poor bony
one, the other patting Spotty's sleek
back.
"You jist keep still. Oh, Pa, to
think of your starvin' of yourself and
a makin' of yourself sick, jist because
I didn't want to be bothered by a
dog. Oh, Pa, you was out of your
head that Hrst day, and you talked so
strange. We never knew how lonesome
you was without the critters
before and that you wanted a dog so.
That very day I went out to the barn
and found this rascal and I brought
him in, and he has lived on the fat of
the land ever since. Oh Pa," and
Ma's head fell down on the bed in an
atronv of renentancp. anrl Snnttv

bis moat insinuating way, gave Ma's
shining gray head a few loving little
licks.?Boston Post.

Use of Magnets In Flour Mills.
Explosions are often caused in llour
mills and breweries by nails or other
Iron particles that find their way in
the grain and which when they strike
the steel rolls of the mills produce
sparks and ignite the finely pulverized
material about thorn.
Recently a large malting concern
mni imajmcen troubled by many such
explosions installed a set of electromagnets
over which the grain Is
passed beforo being prepared for
shipment to the breweries. All Iron
particles In tho grain aro picked up
by the magnets and 800 to 1000 bushels
of grain aro cleaned an hour.
When tho magnets havo collected a
large amount of metal they aro swung
to one side, degenerlzed and swept
clean of any particles adhering to
them by residual magnetism. Slnco
the installation of these magnets
there have been no explosions lu the
, mills.?Scientific American.

Retail Priccs and Living Cost
i?y J. I; \riU:\CK fiATGHMX.
There can be little doubt (hat the
retail organization by which goods go
from the wholesaler to the consumer
is unnecessarily wasteful ami expensive.
There are twenty butcher shops
and groceries in every neighborhood
where only one is needed. JCaeh must
spend much in advertising, in show
windows, in rents, in costly fixtures,
in telephones, in wagos, in horses and
delivery wagons, which are not essential
to the total result. Five or sit
wagons, wiln salaried drivers, ilistribute
trifling quantities of goods to
houses in the same street. The consumer
pays for this waste in the margin
of retail over wholesale prices.
From 1890 to 1908, on an average,
wholesale prices have increased nine
per cent., while retail prices have increased
sixteen per cent. The difference
between wholesale and retail
prices in particular cases, vaties
from 10-2") per cent, to 1.0Q-1G0 per
cent.
If f?no clntif i rx A 1. -
.. Uv?!.o i<j in'1 process
of retail buying it will be realized
that it. is the poller only who practically
sets the price. There i no truo
retail market price. Busy or ignorant
people pay what is charged them
without the patience or the power to
select. In those days we pay for tho
additional costs of dainty and attractive
packages for cereals, crackers,
iigs and tho like. Indeed under tho
cover of special tins an amount of an
article is sold at a price which makes
a pound cost two or three times as
much as formerly. The psychology
of the retail market is itself a study,
of no mean interest. Habit, fancy,
caprice, rumor, emulation, grogarlous
action of a set. may play a part. Onco

of high cost of living, like that of tlio
pre.-cnt clay. There are different retail
prices for each half mile as ono
passes from the centre of a city to its
outskirts. Yet some persons think it
demeaning to bargain or seek for
lower prices. To spend recklessly is
an evidence of what foma regard as
belonging to social position.
In the margin of the retail over
the wholesale price, in a community
not well shake" down into form,
there is an opportuuiiv for serious;
changes in the cost of living. Out of'
this margin the catalogue houses, tho
wholesale grocery houses, <he tea ami;
