"Once, when she'd gone over to
Long Falls to do some marketing for
me and "wasn't back in time, Uncle
John got so mad with her he wouldn't
be satisfied till Silas let him take the
buggy and drive in. after her. They
came back about eight in, the even
Wngr and if you heard the language
lie -was using to her when they got
out of thet cart it would have warm

laughing! Didn't care a bit just
"JHowever, Silas got him to make
his will a month before he died, and
he left everything to me, and Silas
got it in black and white and took it
in to his lawyer. "We thought we had
done our duty then, and so just fold
ed our hands and waited.
"Well, Mrs. Tompkins, the end
came very sudden. Apoplexy, the
doctor said. And would you believe
it, the old rake had made a second
will the day after he gave his first
to Silas, and in it he left us ninety
two dollars apiece for board and
lodging and comforts, and the rest
went to rmy dear wife, Mary Calla

that day at Long Falls.
' ."Yes, Mrs. Tompkins, the deceit

Saving for saving's sake, without
any special aim or end to accomplish,
soon begts the vice of avarice, and

A DELICIOUS SALAD AS MADE BY
MRS. GEORGE LAW
Mrs. George Law.
M rsGeorge law, who lived so Iqng
in Paris, has acquired a truly Pari
sian taste in salads. She is very fond
of novelties in. this- line and concocts
many original ones herself.
One of her ,pet salads is made of
equal parts of pickled green figs,
pickled peaches and pickled pears,
all chopped into cubes and covered
with a rich French dressing. This
is served on crisp romaine leaves
with grated allspice over all.
For another one of her salads she
slices an alligator pear and fills in
side the ring left by the stone with
sections of grape fruit and sliced
Spanish peppers, twice as much
grape fruit as peppers. Over this she
turns a French dressing made of, four
tablespoons of oil to one of tarragon
vinegar and one-naif teaspoon of salt
Beat until thick.
Both salads are delectable, asI can.
