Mr. Travers, pretending to rinse
plates in the river Thames,looked per
petually toward Miss Daisy Middleton
-industriously engaged in packing
dishes. Over the meadow the rest of
ihe picnic party was dotted mainly in
palra, as is pleasant to look upon at a
picnic. If the truth were known, Mr.
Travers was pleased to ses Miss I ?lid
dleton sternly packing, - for of late sue
lxad se erne fl to bestow too much of the
honey of her smiles upon a certain
bee (to give him no worse title) of the
same of Congreve; and Miss Middle
ton was rejoiced to seo Mr. Travers
pretendingjto rinse, since she had a cer
tain undefined objection to hear his
praises song by others of her sex-as
People entertaining such approxi
mate sentiments have no business to
be separated by a distance of at least
20 yards. So at any rate Mr. Travers
thought, for hf left the meadow sweets
that sucked in the eddying stream be
hind him, and, bearing the cleansed
plates as a peace offering in his hand,
approached the lady. ,
Miss Middleton lifted her eyes ont
of a hamper, and, preceiving his

began,."and eyelids heavy and red

imminent-and has rinsed picnic
plates till he could do no more. "
"During which time," she asked,
"he broke-how many?"
"That is hardly generous," said
Mr. Travers, gravely. . "How many
exactly I started with I don't remem
ber. One-I admit it- 'came to
pieces in my hand,' as the kitchen
maida say. Another I was compelled,
morally and intellectually, to throw
at a grasshopper that came up imper
tinently to sniff the mayonnaise. A
saucer or two, by nature amphibious,
started down stream. But what would

"And I gave you ll," said Miss
'It's better than picking daises, like
Congreve,", said Mr. Travers, slyly.
"Would you like to clean some
knives?" she asked, willing to change
the subject. 'They don't break so
easily, and we shall want some for
"It's no relaxation cleaning things
that don't break," said Mr. Travers,
"You intend simply to be idle till
tea?" she asked, scornfully.
"If you think I deserve a little re
creation for cleansing all those
plates," he said.
"Let us split the difference and say
"You crack a joke and a plate in
the same breath," she said.
"Don't you think I might take you
out in that canoe?" he persisted.
"It's rather late," she said, doubt

"But canoes are so unsafe. Perhaps
if Miss Maltby would come with us,
it would be steadier."
This was a distinctly unkind reflec
tion on Miss Maltby, whoso attrac
tions, in the opinion of many, were
not detracted from by her weight, Mr.
Travers, however, saw light in the
unkindness, and willingly sacrificed a

deny the merits of Miss Maltby," he
said, "she would add more than a
feather-weight Besides, in adopting
an invention like canoes, from the

"I fancied he was making daisy
chains," "Z?? Mr. Travers.
Now, if Miss Middleton had been
adverse to the voyage, this foolish re
mark would have left Mr. Travers soli
tary.' But she was not. She suffered
herself to be constrained-not too
roadily. Yet sine?, when once the
canoe wai lannched. Mr. Travers
seemed to sink into abstraction, Miss
Middleton took up the ball. Since
this is the very simplest story, devoid
of incidents cr criticism, is sufficient
to say of Miss Middleton's conduct,
"suoh, is life, " ?nd to report her re

she said. "i'm like a cat-very

MT. Travers, irrelevantly. "That is

"Oh, yes, that's all nonsense," he
said, d'^txactedly. "I should say I
am talking nonsense now. What I
meant was that if five people were ia
it, it couldn't be safer. "
"It does sound rather nonsense,"
said Miss Middleton tttimercilully.
It is not clear why maidens at these
critical times are so much more apt to
keep their heads than are men. Mr\
Travers thought it a hard uispensa
tion of nature, and sought refuge
from his distraction by jogging the

man would be guilty of such conduct.

The Damage to Foliage
' During the dronghts ??d liol ct?ys
of the past parching summer m?cli
damage to foliage Was caused upon
certain crops aud trees, notably sugar
beets, cauliflowers, cherries and
maples. The leaves of the sugar
beets we?t down as though struck by
blight or similar disease, the yonug
cauliflower plants lost many of their
unfolding tender blades through
parching aud death of their margins,
and cherries and maples in certain lo
calities stood denuded Ioug before
time for foliage to fall. These injuries
occurred soon after days in late sum
mer when the drought had been long
continued and when hot parching
winds made a sudden demand oti the
on tho plants for more moisture.
That the injury was due to this cotis?,
excessive transpiration and not either
to lack of water due to drought br to
disease, has been demonstrated by

To give the horse ? dre?ch or bolus
requires both skill ?nd patience with
exceeding gentleness: All solid medi
cines Should be at first reduced to
powder and theu rolled iu p.oine viscid
material to form a paste in au oblong
cylinder mass about two and one-half
inches long. "Place the right baud
fiat over the bones of the animal's
nose, grasping each side, thus to
steady the head, while with the left
hand the operator seizes the tongue,
drawing it outward to the off side, the
fingers resting on the lower jaw for
support. This will secure the tongue
from being drawn out too far. The
bolus should be grasped between the
first, second and third finger tips of
the right hand and carried over the
tongue to the back of the mouth."
Withdraw the right hand quickly and
also release the tongue, instantly
closing the horse's mouth and holding
his jaws together. In giving a draught
or drench, which is the liquid form of
administering medicine, use a horn,
or a perfectly clean tin bottle. Stand
on tho off side of the horse and "in
sert the fiugers of the loft hand with
in the angle of tho month, " drawing
away tho animal's cheek in order to
form a suitable ponch into which the
fluid is poured "in small and succes
sive doses as the creature permits it
to pass down the gullet. The neck of
the bottle; therefore, does not enter
the mouth and injuries from that
source are entirely avoided. The
tongue must be left quite free, as it is
a most effective agent in carrying
fluids onward to the gullet, and its
action greatly facilitates the operation
of drenching."-Our Animal Friends.

Converting the bone3 about the
farm into soluble fertilizer is another
of the small economies that it would
be well for every farmer to heed.
Very often a good many bones of ani
mals rhat have died upon the farm
might be collected, if farmers would
give atteutiou to Buch things; and
quite a lot might be saved in the kit
chen in the course of a f?w months.
Instead of being thrown away to be
carried off by worthless dog3 or left
to rot in the forest, all these bones
ought to be collected and converted
into a good phosphate by the farmer.
A bushel or two of bones, pucked
down in strong wood ashes, and kept
wot, hut not wet enough to drip, will
make a nice lot of fertilizer in a few
A kerosene barrel is a good thing to
pack them in: First, a layer of ashes
made wet, then a layer of bones, and
next another course of ashes, and so
on, until the cask is almost full.
Leave space euough at top to hold a
bucketful of water, and keep the mass
wet. If you fear your ashes are not
very strong.add some of the powdered
concentrated lye from time to time.
Large bones should be broken small,
but all small or soft bones will soon
yield to this treatment. In a few
weeks turn the mass out on a floor,
and with a hoe or maul crush the
bones to powder, and you have as
good a phosphate as the most that you
buy and at far less cost.
Superphosphate is made from boues
treated with sulphuric acid, which re
duces them in a few hours. But the
acid is a risky article to handle, aud
the farmer with only a small parcel of
boues had better go slow and safe
with ashes. It will pay to utilize
bones in this way. Don't let bones
lie about in the woods where dead
animals were left, but gather them
up aud reduce them to fertilizer. Save
all the bones from the kitchen, and
treat them likewise.

In the first place good cows are a
necessity. A scrub which gives in
different milk half the year is one of
the great leaks on many farms. Next,
cows must be well-sheltered, well-fed
and kiudly treated, this last being far
more essential than most people
thiuk. Cows which are stabled should
be well brushed' and the udder wiped
with a damp cloth to prevent the fine
dust of the barn falling into the pail.
This is one cause of bitter milk in
winter. A wire strainer with a fine
thin cloth over it keeps everything
else out of the milk. Tin paus are
easier kept sweet, lighter to handle
and I think the cream rises better in
them thau crocks.
The milk should not be covered un
til the animal warmth is out of it. The
sooner it cools the more cream rises.
In summer the pans can be set iu
cold water and the water ? drawn off
when warm and renewed. A shallow
zinc box, like the top of a sink, only
large enough to accommodate all the
milk of one milking, is *haudy. The
box should be as deep as the pans,
with a spout to let the water of? One
bucket of water would be sufficient to
cool the milk. The pans can be left
here until next milking or when cool

Stop churning when the butter

to mix the salt. The grain then re

never work over butter that comes

chnrned at the right temperature.

Several hundred people were present,
and among the amusements was a
series of questions that a physician
propounded. Old and young got ludi
crously taugled up ou the rib inquisi

majority of the guests thought man
had more ribs on one side than on
the other, the missing constituent of
the thoracic wall being attributed to
Mother Eve. Only a dozen or so
replied that mau had the same num
ber as woman. What that number is
less than teu correctly stated.
"Who was the first artisan?" was
one of the questions, and when every
body had given it up the answer was,
"God, because He took one of Adam's
ribs and fashioned it into a woman."
As a matter of fact each sex has, nor
mally, 24 ribs, 12 on a side. Many
men and women have managed to ex

others have been obliged to struggle

QBEEN'SBOHB. BOX B. Atlanta, Qa
A New York millinery bouse has had
an Inquiry for "blushing bonnets." In
asmuch as it was the first inquiry of
the kind, and as they did not know
what under the blue canopy a "blush
ing bonnet" was, they instituted a
careful search to find out. The result
is Interesting, even from a sordid com
mercial standpoint. The "blushing
bonnet" is known in London, and It
may have had its origin there, though
a London authority thinks the credit
ought to go to Paris. It is any kind of
a bonnet with a little spring and metal
clasp bidden behind flowers, and when
the head of the fair wearer of the bon
net ls bent forward with that down
cast movement so becoming to modest
maids and matrons, the clasp presses
on the temples and compels a blush.

Eccentric Colonel Eg c.
Colonel Ege was a famous character
In the early days. Although living in
Doniphan County he was often in At
chison, followed by a pack of hounds.
He was a high toned Southern gentle
man with a kind heart, and one day
returning home from this city he came
across a man whose wagon was stuck
in the mud In Independence Creek
bottom. Colonel Ege at once started in
to help the man pry out his wagon
with fence rails. While both were
working away, Ege became angry, and
yelled to the mau: "* .ift, you son of a
gun; you are not lifting a pound." The
man picked up the endgatc of the wag
oon, anti split it over Ege's head, lay
ing him up for three weeks. Ege had
his hat off when struck, and was sc
bald before coming to Kansas that he
was known as the Bald Eagle of Mary
land. Ege always carried a pistol, and
was always trying to shoot through
somebody's hat without hitting him.
One day, at the Independence Creek
ferry, he shot at a man, but aimed
a little lev, and creased him. But Ege
was always a gentleman; he took the
man to his home, and tenderly cared
for him until he recovered.

Question of Kinship.
General Hickenlooper and his family
make the evening dinner a source of
mental as well as cf physical nutrition,
in which exercise the general has
us??dly the best of it by presenting
puzzling ?rrd difficult probfems. The
other evening fie ycrttflgstere turned
the tables upon him by presenting the
following legal proposition:
A French beggar died and left one
child, a sor. and a considerable estate.
The son, in order to inherit the estate,
was required to prove a kinship to the
deceased. What kinship did he prove?
The general promptly replied the kin

The children said the answer was
wrong-the parent was a woman. This
tickled the general, and he decided to.

taking luncheon with a friend, he pro

The present German Emperor, then
a small boy, attended-the wedding of
the Prince and Princess of Wales. He
was under the'charge of his two uncles,
the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke,
of Connaught. As may be expected,
young William fidgeted sadly, and con
sequently received an occasional warn
ing tap on the shoulder. But how he
did revenge himself! His uncles were
in Highland dress, and the future em
peror slyly knelt down and bit into
their bare legs with great earnestness.

A Centle Hint.
"When I get to be a man," said the
boy who has a good memory foi
phrases, "I'm going to strive to culti

"That's right," replied the father,
"How are you going to go about it?"
"Well, in the first place, if I have
any little boys I'll let them shoot theil
own fireworks instead of telling them
they must let me do it for fear thej
will hurt themselves."
