The cannery cook looked nervously
at his watch. Quarter past eight and

A youngish, brown-whiskered man,
in a pink golf shirt, jumped on the
edge of the tank and balanced there
perilously. He was the manager of
, the Califoruia Consolidated company.
Restlessness and vehemence boiled
down, he often raid he paid Dave extra
wages to help him fume. One reason
why the manager managed everything
so well was becanse he knew so well
how to mauage the manager.
"Hang it, D.-.ve!" said he, "the
minute a girl gets to be good for - any
thing, she quits and marries. If I
could keep my best help, life would
be worth living. Come, girls, come!"
It quickened the workers across the
half-partition, this clarion call and the
glimpse of the manager's tense face.
"The boss is gowing cranky," said
a brown-haired girl with rubber glove
fingers on, hurriedly poking a half
apricot through the little round hole
in the top of the can. All the packers
had their fingers protected against the
cruel curve of the tin. White cot:
rags would do.

"Oh, you're locoed!" rejoined Hebe
swishing the nectarious nozzle from
oue little tin god to another with an
elysian disregard of the spill. "The
manager will look above Jessie!" she
Dave had turned the valve again,
and the steam roared into one of the
big tanks. Another hissed and
growled, and the conversation of the
girls was inaudible. The packers had
caught up with the process-room, and
the apricot factory was in full blast.
How deftly the sealer blistered the
yarn of solder around the can tops,
which spun on the revolving disks in
front of him. The metal string ran
down fr .m a coil over his head, tho
whirling can caught it, and the hot
iron tied the knot The other workers
might fall behind, but the sealer could
stand in his track?, hold his hands
over the whirligigs, look pleasant and
keep caught up.
The manager drew a breath of sat
isfaction as he saw the platform of
cans lowered into the hissing bath.
"Give 'em forty-five minutes this
time, Dave," he said, and passed into
the labeling shed.
If there was anything that pleased
the manager more than another it was
bis labeling department; and perhaps
he could not have told whether his
labels or his labeler gave him the more
pleasure. To the eye they were
equally inviting. The cream-and
yellow undertones of the enameled
wrappers appealed to one's imagina
tion; they tasted good. Upon them
the designer had ripened two juicy
apricots, suggesting that the only bite
in the world worth taking came from
the fabulous orchards of California.
:"It's the label and not the stock thut
sells the pack, " the manager would
admit in a confidential moment. The
golden apples of the Hesp?ridos would
have humbugged more people than
they did had there been lithographers
in those days.
Jessie's left hand picked np a glis
tening label and her right seized a can
of fruit; one end of the label flirted
daintily through a little pool of paste
at the end of her bench; the can re
volve)! once and rolled itself into the
wrapper-done! An ugly tin had
turned into a thing of beauty. Jessie
had merely beckoned and it had
jumped into its yellow jacket. Small
wonder was it that the q?hor girls
thought she had beckoned the man
ager into his pink shirt.
He stood for a moment and admired
her. The lines of her fair young face
and blooming figure had not been
hardened by the months she had spent
in the cannery, earning her dollar and
sixty cents a day. "I wonder if I
shall lose her, too!" the manager said
to himself. It would be bard to tell
all that was in his thoughts theo.
Most of the time he was thinking of
the success of the company and the
difficulty of keeping good help. "By
Jove!" he went on, his countenance
lighting up with a business inspira- .
tion, "I'll put her picture on the new

more. With his absorbing devotion

manager could not have thought of a
happier distinction than having one's
face stamped in green and gold on the
glittering labels of the California Con
solidated No. 1 Pie Apricot. And, in
deed, bas not la diva been flattered
into serving the less gorgeous designs
of tooth-powder aud soap?
There was a little hiss, an audible
fermentation, then a pop and a slam.
A pyramid of cans toppled over and a
splash of yellow lusciousness was
flung upon the manager's golf-shirt.
Jessie wiped a sticky blotch from her
rosy face. A box of freshly labeled
tius was in disgrace?
"Cussed carelessness!" exclaimed
the angry manager. "See here,

worst of the pain was that Jessie had

It seemed cooler in the steamy kit
chen, though the mercury was rising.
Through tho open door Dave soon saw
the manager strolling among tbe hur
rying cutters. Some of the girls could
halve the 'cot and flip out the pit with
one quick twist of knife and thumb.
The motion seemed simple, but you
could not understand it at first sight.
"Have 'em look a lit!le sharper
after their sorting, Miss Bnmble!"
the manager called, after a flash of his
quick eye*around the room.
"Ali right, 8ir!"said the "forolady,"
who waa clicking a hole with a ticket
punch in the tag of a fat and wheeziug
cutter, who bad brought her pile of
pits to get credit for having finished a
box of the 'cots. A hole in her tag
was worth six cents to her. "My,
ain't it bot!" she puffed, wiping her
face with ber apron. It was late in
July aud the suu beat remorselessly
on the corrugated-iron roof. The fat
woman wondered why the manager
had not set some eucalyptus-trees
around the works, as she stood in the
doorway for a moment and gu zed
longingly at the mountains half hiddeu
by a gray gauze of dust. "Looks like
a Sauta Ana," said the wheezy one.
"Trays!" sang out a shrill trio of
sopranos in the cutting room.
"Always short of trays! I believe
the boys eat 'em!" growled the man
ager, parsing through to the kitchen
and shaking things up all along the
line. The manager spent more time
in the kitchen than in his office, not
altogether to the gratification of Dave.
The cooking was a critical process;
and then from the back door of the
kitchen the manager could keep one
eye on the labeling. ? Privately, Dave
had expostulated to Hebe that it didn't
do the help any good to eye 'em all
the time; whereat Hebe winked pri
vately and luminously at the sealer.
The last batch of the forenoon had
been put into' cook, and Dave scanned
the water closely to see if a tell-tale
bubble was escaping from a leaky can.
Suddenly the water quivered. Dave
felt a little jar, and heard a crash as
if a tall stack of loaded trays had top
pled over in the cutting-room.
True to his trick, the .manager
leaped up and stood astride a corner
of one of the big tanks, peering across
the half partition, to see what the
There came a creaking sound. The
building swayed, the partitions heav
ing and the boards grinding against
each other. There was another jar,
as if a freight-shifter had bumped into
the cannery-then a tremeudous
splash, and sprays of water hissed
upon tbe sealer's bot irons.
A second of staring, startling pilen ce
was.followed by a chorus of shrieks
that overwhelmed all things. .After
tho earthquake was over, the girls
had time to be frightened.
"Merciful powers!" yelled the
sealer, "the boss is parboiled!"
For if quivering moment the whole
cannery seemed horror stricken, then
all rushed.for the tank. One woman
fell in a faint, and the others swept
by ber. Dave stood as if paralyzed,
but with a queer look on his face that
was either lunacy or amused self-pos
session. There were sounds of a strug
gle in the tank, but no cry was beard.
With blanched face the sealer
brushed by Dave and reached for the

When Captain Glenn of our army
was sent with a detachment of soldiera
to carry ont some extensive explora

that snow shoes would have to play
au important part in the work. An

who supplied the fun.

St. Petersburg, Russia, where stood a

fell n.or J or less water penetrated the
stones in the iuterior of the monu

disappeared from view, killing a lone

instantly generated steam on coming
in contact with some of the water and

The Rev. E. R. Johnson of Mul
berry, Ind., one of the oldest ministers
in that part of the state, was taken
sick a few days ago. His illness re
calls the fact that he was once de
clared dead, and while lying in his
coffin he heard his funeral sermon
preached by a brother minister. Mr.
Johnson had Buffered an attack of cat
alepsy. He was conscious of what
was taking place about him, heard the
physician pronounce him dead, and
witnessed the preparations made for
his burial. The spell was broken just
after the eulogy had been pronounced.
His restoration to health followed.
According to the American Consul
at Chingting, China, the people of
China are not so far behind the pro

Mr. Smithers gravely reports to the

heavy they are killed, and their craws '

?s might be expected, the English
are using in the South African war the
most modern military appliances that
can be had. They are thoroughly up
to date in the matter of guns and am
munition, and even the surgeons are
using now meaus of developing X
rays. The War Office has negotiated
with Marconi's business representa
tives for wireless telegraphic outfits,
and by this time the apparatus ought
to bo in service. Moreover, a num

Ono of the most striking instances
of this kind is the employment of a

further, and save money, as the oil will cost about fifty cents a gallon.
Write to the company telling them what colors you want and how
much, and price will be given. The paint contains the best material
and a guarantee goes with every can, barrel and package of paint.
