"Oh mother," said Ruth Wallis,

been a standing problem to her, and

She was standing in front of the
milkroom window, busy with her
shining pans-after all there was a
certain poetry in the occupation
when all of a sudden a whiskered
and mustached face presented itself,
all framed in the casement.
"Goodness me!" cried Ruth, with a
violent stare which had nearly upset
one of the vessels, and then recover
ing her presence of mind she added :
"What do you want ?"
"I beg your pardon," said the ap

curl of his lips. "I am none of these.
I am-in the china business."
"Oh," said Ruth, beginning to
comprehend "Vases, and little dogs
and parrots, for cast-off clothes. But

in ceramics, and the moment his idle
glance, cast upward through Mrs.

drank a glass of water at the well?

"I've just a month to stay here be

law office again," meditated he. "A
man can do a great deal in a month."
And he set himself regularly to
work to win the treasure which he
yearned for so deeply.
Day after day he strolled to the

now with that, a handsome, courtly,
middle aged man, whose] winning

up. Here's a pretty how-to-do about

A DEFINITION OF AN EDITOR.-!
We have seen many definitions of
many names, words and phrases, but
the following of an editor, given by
Josh Billings, is about the best we
ever yet encountered:
An editor is a male being whose
buziness is to navigate a nuze paper.
He writes editorials, grinds out poe
try, inserts deths and weddingp, sorts
outmanuskipts, keeps a waste basket,
blows up the "devil," steals matter,
fites other peoples' battle??, sells his
papers for two dollars and fifty cents
a year, takes white beans and apple
sass for pay when he kan git it, razes
a large family, works 19 hours out ov
every 24, knows no Sunday, gits
dammed bi everybody, and once in a
while whipt bi sumbody, lives poor,
dies middle aged, and often broken
hearted, leaves no money, iz rewarded
for a life ov toil with a short but free
obituary puff in the nuzpapers.
