for three weeks, but before she had been
there three days she appeared dissatisfied
with her surroundings.
"What is the matter?" asked the
farmer. "Ain't things as represented?"
"Y-y-yes," said the top-floor girl, I
guess so. The only thing that seems
wrong is my memory. It is entirely too
active. You will remember that in our
correspondence I said I wanted to find
a place where I could forget all my troubles, and you wrote
back that this was the ideal spot for' anything of that kind.
You said I could forget my own name here if I tried real
"Well?" said the farmer, inquiringly.
"Well," proceeded the top-floor girl, I think you fooled
me there. I don't believe you have a Lethean spring on the
place. I can remember things more distinctly now than be
fore I came."
"That is curious," said the farmer. "The place has
worked like a charm with' others. I completely cured a
young man that was here week before last. When he came

of which she knew so little. When enlightened, she came to
the conclusion that she would like to make some self-denial
during Lent, and her mother encouraged her to do so. She
halted in her choice between candy and peanuts, but finally
decided to give up the peanuts, of which she was extraordi

shells in Majone's room and said to her:
"Marjorie, dear, I thought you were going to give up

INDIAN DUMMY.Can you tell why the Indian dummy is
used as a cigar-store sign and how it originated? I shall
await with interest your reply.0. T.
The Indian has been used as a cigar-store sign since the
time of James I., and was used because of the association of
tobacco with Virginia and its native people. Thefigureof
the Indian crowned with tobacco leaves and wearing a kilt of
the same was placed at the door of the old tobacco shops in
London and on the continent and three rolls of tobacco, also
cut in wood, always hung above it. A wooden figure of a
negro was occasionally used, but was never so popular as
that of the Indian.
BATTENBURG CURTAINS.-How long should Battenburg
curtains be made and what should they be mounted on?
Is the selvage of the mounting material left on one side or
is the curtain finished with braid? How far should the
insertion be from the lace edging?Interested Reader.
The curtains should be two and a half yards long and
should be of Arabian net. The selvage may be left on one
side sk a finish or the edge may be turned over and
hemmed. A braid is seldom used. The insertion should be two
or three inches from the lace, whichever looks the best with
the width you will use.

What the Market Affords
ERSEY sweet potatoes, 7 pounds for 25 cents.
Lima beans, 35 cents a duart.
Damson plums, 10 cents a quart $1.50 a crate.
Highbush cranberries, $1 a peck.
Cauliflower, 10 to 15 cents.
Eggs, 20 to 27 cents a dozen.
Butter, 25 cents a pound.
Jersey sweet potatoes made their appearance in the mar
ket today and will quickly supplant the potatoes that have
preceded them, for the Jersey ranks king of its kind. Butter
has taken another jump and is now selling at 25 cents a
pound. The highbush cranberries make a delicious jelly,
tart and clear, to be eaten with game.
Have you ever tasted cauliflower fritters? They are
really toothsome, and as the vegetable is cheaper than it has
been it should be used now. Take a cauliflower that is rather
undercooked and break it into branches of equal size. Dip
each piece in a frying batter made with an egg, an ounce of
flour and a gill of milk and fry in deep fat until it is of a
deep golden brown.
As an entree, cauliflower gratin is good for luncheon or
dinner, and is extremely simple to make. Place a cauliflower,
boiled, with its stalks downward, in a pie dish. Cover it
with melted butter to whieh a cooked, chopped onion, a quar
ter of a pound of grated parmesan cheese and a pinch of
pepper and salt have hee adde Sprinkle the surface with
a little grated cheese and breadcrumbs and bake it in the
oven until golden brown.
Cauliflower can also be used for a salad that is both new
and good. Take a medium-sized head of cooked cauliflower,
pare off the root and detach it in equal-sized flowerets place
these in a salid bowl season with a pinch of salt, a dash of
pepper and a pinch of chopped parsley add three table
spoonfuls of vinegar, two of good salad oil and mix all well
together with a wooden spoon and serve.

with gratitude and asked that the funds
go to found a Sunshine scholarship for
Colorado $.t the Alfred university in
New York. This scholarship is perpetual
and costs $1,000. When $100 has heen
paid in some worthy boy or girl from Col
orado will be chosen and enjoy this free

Mrs Betts, who has been state president
for years, and was the organizer for the
Sunshine society of Colorado, has been
forced to resign owing to severe illness
in her family There is deep regret
among all Sunshiners to lose Mrs Betts,
for hef enthusiastic spirit and energy
have been important factors in the suc

To live content with small means to
seek elegance rather than luxury,
refinement rather than fashion, to be
worthy, not respectable, and 'wealthy, not
rich, to study hard, thlnK quietly, talk
gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and
birds, babes and sages, with open heart,
to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely,
await occasions, hurry ne\er, in a word,
to let the spiritual, unbidden and uncon
scious, grow up thru the commonplace.
