THERE is a man of my acquaintance and be thinks himself a fairly
intelligent and well Informed man, too who was greatly astonished
when his wife told him, shortly after tbeli- marriage, -that she did
not know how to sew. "Why," he said, "I thought all women knew
how to sew naturally." And he was offended when his wife laughed at the
Idea, that sewing Is a natural gift with all women. And so it is with other
branches of work generally held to be comprised in women's sphere. They
, do not come naturally to all women, and some of them are not easily learned

Miss Eunice (jlasser was a "sorter"

Abner Jackson,' who was a "sorter"
old bachelor, had been courting ber
for five years without actually popping
the question. She lived with her wid
owed mother In the village, and be
worked a little farm just outside.
Abner wasn't luzy. He was Just a
good nutured poke of a man. lie was
going to get married some day, but
there was no hurry about It. al
ways talked as if he Intended to marry
Eunice, but he didn't come down to
details. He didn't ask ber to name
the day and arrange the bridal . tour.
Eunice liked Abner and bore with him,
but she was getting rather tired of It
when her Aunt Hannah came on a
visit Aunt Ilanunh saw Abner. two
or three times, understood his nature
and then said to her niece: '
'Look ' here, you've got a poke of a
man' hanging around after you. and It
may be ten years - more before 'he'll

"Get mod . at him . and make him

"He Only laughs when I get mad." .
'fThen set in and criticise his feet.

he's' the homeliest man you ever saw."
"I don't think he'd mind it at all." ,
"Didn't you ever See him show any
temper?" , . .-
"Not a bit. He was run- over by a
drove of hogs once and got up laugh
ing. No, you can't make Abner mad.
He's a poke, but an awfully good
man." .... ,- , . .
"And are, you going to keep right on
for the next fifty years, are you?"
One afternoon . three or four days
later a vinegar barrel with one head
ont was 'left at the house by the grocer
to be used as a rain barrel. The bouse
stood on quite a hill, and there was a
sharp slope down to the village street
About the hour Abner usually appear
ed Eunice was sent on .an errand to
the other side of the village, and when
the "poke" arrived Aunt Hannah was
the one to greet him. She took him
to the corner of the house where the
barrel stood and promptly began: .
'See here. Mr. Jackson, you've been
dawdling around here for years. What
are you after?" , . .. . , ' ;'
'Why why'V he stammered -as be

say no mora '
'Oh, you can't tellt I knew you
couldn't You've come here almost ev
ery night in the week for months and
years and squatted yourself down, and
what for? Your talk can't Interest
anybody. The sight of you isn't In
spiring. If 1 was Eunice I'd Just as
soon have a wooden man around. And
yet you come and squat and squat I
ask you, sir, what you mean- by suck
conduct?" . " ' ' ! '1 .
'I I guess I'll go home," answered
Abner, who' was too astonished to sea
straight . .
'And I guess you won't" said Aunt
Hannah, "at least nob until you have
explained yourself. I've been looking
at you. If I had a cow as homely as
you are I'd knock ber In the bead with
the ax. Hump shouldered, bowlegged
and feet like an elephant and yet you
come here and squat around and take
up a girl's time! Why, man, what can
you think of yourself?"
"I'll never come agaiuV exclaimed
Abner in a changed voice.'- , .
"Tbatfs good. That's what I want
ed to hear you say. 60 and squat
somewhere else. Go and find the home

The first time I saw you I knew you
was a poke of a man and you hadn't
grit enough to push a toad off Its nest"
"Woman, be careful! If you aggra
vate me too' much"
"Aggravate an old poke! Why, man,
it would take you three years to get
mad, even if you started in tonight"
The next thing she knew she was
being lifted off her feet in Abner's
strong arms and deposited in the handy
barrel. . Before she could yelp twice
the barrel was whirled on its side
and given a kick 0 start it down the
slope. It took an erratic course. It
ran to the right a few feet and then
shied to the left' It stopped for a
moment at a gooseberry bush and
then dodged and jumped clear over a
era bapple tree. . There were yelling and
screaming from the Inmate of the bar
rel, but Abner stood and watched the
circus and shouted back: ;
"I'm a poke, am I? I'm a squatter,
am I? I've got bowlegs and bumped
shoulders and feet like an- elephant!

. And the barrel rolled, and Aunt Han

through the fence and brought up
against a shade tree in the street No
one was killed. No bones were broken.
Aunt Hannah crept out and up to the
house and was Just finished with the
last of .the arnica when Miss Eunice
came rushing in with radiant face to
