arm-Cfylr before the window, where
most of his time was spent. A young
man oftwo and twenty, or thereabouts,
noticeable for nothing unless for the
cheerfulness of his father boyish face,
sat neat him.
Mr. Dodson looked up with a wel
coming ?mlle; as Annie entered.
"My nephew,? Dudley Howard, my
dear." he said.
The young man rose and bowed
rather constrainedly, Annie thought.
Mr. Dodson regarded her anxiously.
"Sit down." he said.

that soraithlng unpleasant was com

It was a very simple thing, surely,

"Words would not express what I

"It can't possibly be!"
The occupant of the arm-chair moved
restlessly; he was waking up.
Arnie lowered her voice as she weat
"I am already engaged. I-"
She paused In bewilderment. The
face of her listener had been suddenly
traiisformed with unmistakable rel'ef
and joy. He seized her hands warm
ly. - . .
"Engaged? Well, if we aren't in the
same boat! So am I!"
Annie's severity vanished. Her cold
gaze gave way to a quick smile of
"Are you, Mr. Hobart?" she cried,
"ira so glad!"
Don't call me Mr. Hobart, said the
young man, impetuously. "Call me

bending over his chair and feeling
Mr. Dodson's reply was a strange
one. It was a short, rather sarcastic,
Annie and Dud exchanged startled
glances. Could he have overheard,
them? No; it was Impossible.
But he turned upon them abruptly.

Annie with humorously-stern gaze

For answer, Mr. Dodson took up the
hand-mirror-Annie's birthday pres

before his eyes, and motioned the two
to look into it.
It reflected, with wonderful dis

Mr. Dodson was among the liveliest

He gave away the bride; he made a
stirring speech, and he led a quadrille.

young Mrs. Canby was a puzzle to the

ALL HONOR TO PARSLEY.
Curious Folklore und History Concerning
This Common Herb.
Some quaint ideas have hovered
around that familiar garden herb and
dish adorner, parsley. In England,
Devonshire folk declare that parsley
must never be transplanted or great
evil will follow. Suffolk people say it
will not come up double unless sown
on Good Friday-a notion that experi
ments might surely soon have dis
proved-while dwellers in Hampshire
steadfastly refuse to give any parsley
away. Ask them for roses, lilies, fruit
or rare vegetables, and basketfuls.will
be gladly bestowed on you, but request
a few sprigs of parsley and you will
be told, with n solemn shaking of
heads, "No, we never pick parsley for
anyone, unless lt's paid for!"
The great historian Plutarch relates
an Interesting anecdote on the subject
of this herb. Timoleon was leading an
army against the Carthaginians. "But
as he was ascending a hill from the
top of which the enemy's camp and
all their vast forces would be In sight
he met some mules laden with parsley;
and bis men took It Into their heads
that lt was a bad omen because we
usually crown the sepulcher with
parsley, and thence comes the proverb
with regard to one that is dangerously
ill. 'Such a one has need of nothing
but parsley.' To deliver them from
this superstition and to remove the
panic Timoleon ordered the troops to
halt, and making a speech suitable to
the occasion observed among other
things that crowns were brought thom
before the victory, and offered them
selves of their own accord. For the
Corinthians from all antiquity have
looked upon a wreath of parsley as
sacred, crowning the victors with lt at
the Isthmian games." The general
then crowned himself and all his offi
cers with parsley wreaths, and led
his men to battle, their fears con
quered; the result being a decisive

The centre of population ls the cen

to have the same weight. The method
of determlulmr that, centre Is as fol
lows: The population of the country
ls first distributed by "square degrees,"
as the area included between consecu
tive parallels and meridians is desig
nated. A point is then assumed ten
tatively \a the centre, and the cor
rections in latitude and longitude to
this tentativo position are computed.
In 1890 the centre was assumed to
be at the intersection of the parallel
of 30 degrees, with the meridian of
80 degrees weBt of Greenwich. This
would have made the centre of pop
ulation of the United States Just two
miles due north of Seymour, In Jack
son County, Ind. From this assumed
base the verifications were made and
the true centre was located.
The movement of the centre has
been steadily westward. On the ac

IRED BLOW MAKES PLANTS BROW |
V Flammarion's Investigation of the Influ- $
2| encc of VarlouaKinds of Light S
S| on Vegetation. *
The experiments in regard to the
influence of the different parts of
the ' sunlight upon the growth of
plants have been carried on for sever
al years, especially by the famous bot
anist Sachs, who proved that red rays
of the sunlight especially favored the
growth of plants and flowers. Such
investigations have now been again
taken up by M. Camille Flammarion,
a celebrated French astronomer. Flam
marlon established, In connection with
the Observatory at Juvisy, near Paris,
an experiment station in the form of
a small garden? as represented tn one
of the cuts, where he studied the mat
ter and conducted his experiments. A
report recently published contains

some Interesting polnld. Flammarlon
used the double-sides bell-shades,
which were filled with colored solu
tions, and at the same time he pro
vided beds, covered with colored glass.
The best results, however, were at
tained In four little hot houses, one
of which is covered with ordinary win
dow glass, and the other three with
blue, green, and red glass. The gla^a
used for these houses was carefully ex
amined, and only those pieces taken

first selected for his first experiments
a plant from which, through its pe
culiar forms of growth, we can judge,
nt any time, of its healthy condition.
This was tho Mimosa p?dica, the well
known stnsitive plant whose leaves
act only upon exterior Irritations when
the plant is in a perfectly normal con
dition. Young plants of a trifle ovci
an inch in height were planted on the
same day and In the same manner in
all of the four houses, and were care
fully attended to. After three months
a notable difference was to be seen.
Under the blue glass the plants did
not die off, .but neither did they show
any signs of growth. In the white
house they were well developed and
had grown to an average height of
four inches, in the green house the
plants were a little etiolated-that is

magnificent, their height averaging six
inches. The greatest development, how
ever, had taken place in the red house,
where the plants not only showed their
usual normal color, but had reached a
height of seventeen Inches-that Is to
say, fifteen times the original size, and
were blooming splendidly. Flari?
marion then took two other plants and
attained almost the same, or. at least,
very similar results. Experiments
carried on with strawberries showed
.also the same results; under the red

will readily be understood that these

valuable, rare plants, are of the high
