wliolo Mr. Bowser behaved' fairly well,
A week had passed when ho said to
Airs. Bowser ono morning:
1 "Vvoll, I'm going to put in a big
day's work today. I'vo got to work off
some- of thlH Rurplns fat and harden up.
I think I'll tacklo tho grass first Tlicro

"You mean a scytho," sho Raid.
"Do I? Well, it's all tho Ramo thing.

barn. Think of it, Mrs. Bowser tho

sharpens his scytho in tho green meadow I
I'll sharpen. I'll whistle. I'll havo tho
scent of this now mown hay blown all
over thit country before tho olock strikes

renting this farm for tiio summer? Just
hoar that bluebird warbling his lay,
"That's a crow cawing," Raid Mrs.
Bowser, after listening.
"Is it? Well, it's all the samo tiling.
Wo might havo lived in town for 5C
years and never heard u crow trill. "
"Can't wo havo strawborries for din
ner? Green said there wcro enough on
tho placo for n big family."
"I have looked tho yard over, and
there is just one strawberry vino. II

dinner timo I'll havo it on tho table.
Ho told yon thero wcro oceans of cur
rants, but I can't find nny bushes. "
"Bushes!" exclaimed Mr. Bowser.
"Do you espect to llnd currants growing
on bushes I I thought you were brought
up on a farm?"
"Whero do they grow?" sho asked.
"Do you sco that bed ont thcic? Well,
when it's timo for entrants wo'll havo
'cm by tho bushel. There you gol What
nro you grinning at now?"
"That jm abed of burdocks out tlicro I"
"Burtlctk.l Never! Never, in all this
world! I was jumping over burdocks as
n boy before you siw the light of day.
You may think they are bmdocks, Mis.
Bowser, but what you don't know about
farming would fill a mighty big book.
Don't you wony about currants I'll
fieo that wo havo 'em by the barrel.
Now, thou, to sharpen my scythe. "
There was a M-y tho hanging up in tho
barn and Sir. Bowser lugged it up to
tho Iioum) mid spent half an hour look
ing for en 11 '1 c ,' to sharpen it with.
There was nothing better than a brick
bat, and ho worked away with that and
whistled "Yankee Doodlo" until ho
thought ho had worked up an edge.
Whilo ho was working and whistling a
farmer who was driving along tho road
b topped to iisk:
"Hollo, uaybur. Gittin ready fur
"That's what I am," replied Mr.
"Know all about mowin, I s'poso. "
"Guess I do why?"
"Oh, unthin. I kinder thought you
tlitl from tho way you sharpened that
ficytho. Qoin to hov n lino day of it, by
tho looks of things."
"What was ho saying?" asked Mrs.
Bowser as sho camo out and tho farmer
had driven along.
"Ho'd never seen scytho sharpened
with a briokbat before, I guess, "replied
Mr. Bov.ser "That's what tho ancients
used ultngt titer. Old Pliny and SocHito
and Diogenes would havo laughed tc
bco n man uso a whetstone. Does the
tiling look all right to yon?"
"Yes, but I don't boliovo yon eve:
handled a scytho in all your lifo. "
"You don't, eh?" ho giowled as ho
rolled up his shirt sleeve'. "Yon may
boliovo what you want to, bat when I
begin throwing grats over tho hcmo
you'll take u back peat. Never handled
a scythe, eh? Perhaps your father was
tho only man in tho United States who
ever sent a ton of hay to market. If you
don't want that boy cut in two at tho
first clip, get him out of tho way!"
Young Bowser was pulled out of tho
grass and Rented oil tho doorstep, and as
Mr. Bowser spat on his hands and flour

retreated. Mr. Bowser mado thrco or
four motions to get tho "hang of tho
thing" and then drew a long bieath
nnd mado a tremendous swipo at tho
grass before him. Ho remembered
enough about mowing to recollect that
a mower should utter a "hu" and givo

Gentlemen : I have taken only two bottles
of Paine's Celery Compound for rheumatism,
and liver and stomach trouble0, and will be
frank in saying that 1 am well pleased with the
results. I used one bottle and was SO much
better that I abandoned its uso for a
time, but my old stomach trouble made its ap
pearance again. I piocured another bottle in
September and after using that 1 felt well.
