Life was a wretched muddle; Mar
garet Alice said to herself, with a
sigh; disappointment and failure all
along the line, and only a few short
years ago she had thought it well nigh
perfect. Of course there was the
child, but Tom wasn't Joe, and at this
point the poor girl brushed away the
not tears angrily.
What was the' good of fretting for

Issued from his lips upon the slight

cheek reddened at the recollection of

her in his anger.
Sometimes she had a vague feeling
that her heart must be dead within

the common things around her; it
was only when her baby cried she
knew it was not so, for his feeblest
whimper was sufficient to arouse her
from the dull apathy of despair into
which she had fallen.
Just two years since she and Joe
set up housekeeDing together in the
tiny house in Do.e avenue, and now
all her sweet day dreams lay in ruins
at her feet. Crushed and undone she
had come back to her mother, "noth
ing but a bundle ot skin and hones,
and with scarcely enough spirit left
to hold her head up," as that worthy
woman confided to her special crony.

faith in the man of her choice dies
hard as a rule.
But circumstances alter cases, and
with little Tom's appearance upon the
i^scene Margaret Alice resolved that
other mothers might please them
selves, but as far asshe was concerned
the factory should see her no more.
Henceforth her home and the baby
must constitute her kingdom. Al
though she had never even heard Rus
kin's words she resolved, as she lay
in her delicious weakness, with the
downy head upon her arm, to be a
sort of queen to her man and h r boy.

their coming home to her, the hus- j1

fiercely resenting his mother-in-law's;1
interference, declared that he would ? c_
emierate to Canada, and h'? wife
could go or stay, as best pleased her.
After a few weeks at home Mar
garet Alice went back to uer looms,
while little Tom ran a great danger js
of being completely spoiled by five \ r.
maiden aunts, who bickered vigor
ously 3mong themselves for the priv- ?c
ilege of nursing his small highness.

into the holiday fund the whole year
long, and everybody knew quite well
that what wou'd keep five could be
made to do the same for six.
After that Margaret Alice could
do nothing less than pack her scanty
wardrobe; and baby Tom crowed de
lightfully at sight of the big waves
which came dashing over the prom
enade at Silverport.
Margaret Alice was not what would
he termed a religious woman-her
family had never even been regular
church goers. Perhaps that was the
reason the open air service held on
the firm yellow sands the day after
their arrival attracted her more than
it otherwise might have done. With
h ;r child asleep on her knee, and her
five sisters scattered like a protecc
ir.g hand around her, she listened half
dreamily, half critically, to the deep,
musical tones of the preacher, as he
sought to convey his message of hope
and comfort to the multitude of holi
day makers. Her own dream of hap

awakening so terribly disappointing, j ?
even though sh? should live to be x

A NOVELTY IN KITES.
The large bird-shaped kite shown
In the accompanying picture is called
an "agloplan," the name coming
from the French words "aigle,"
meaning eagle,- and "plan," meaning j
& level surface or plane. Thus thc |
kite is called "eagle-plane," or-plane
with the shape of an eagle, which it
is made to resemble. j
The wings and head of the bird- '
kite are stiff planes, the body, as l
shown, being made of four square
pieces ol canvas stretched stithy upon
a frame of bamboo, steel and whale
bone. The "agloplane" may be made
to lift small cameras for taking
birds-eye pictures or to ascend with J
instruments for experimenting in !
wireless telegraphy, etc. By the pa-|
triotic it may be made/ to carry the ?
nation's banner to the skies. The j
builder, however, uses it for advert?s- \
lng purposes. It combines the lifting .
power of the old-style flat kite with
the rigidity of the modern box-kite.

THE LITTLE ROOSTEPv.
There was once upon a time a little
tin rooster which stood very high in
ieed on the top of the town hall
steeple. He was a new little rooster
with a very long tall. He shone and
glittered in the sun, and he thought
to himself, as he stood there so far
above all the other roosters down '
below In the barnyard: ,|
"Now this ls because I am made of r
tin, and have such a very.long tail.]
They put me up here on the steeple '
for all the world to see."
The little tin.rooster- stood -pericet- j
ly still,' and felt very proud, and r
spread out hiB tail in the pleasant |
sunshine. He did not remember that j
lie should be of some use in the I
world. He was thinking only of how j
pretty he looked in the sunlight. He j
was vain of his tia feathers, and he j
began to make a great deal of troubla j
for the people down in the village.
Out in the harbor the old sailor
had anchored his ship. ,He was go
ing for a long voyage to foreign port3
when the wind blew in from the west.
There he would buy silk dresses for
the grandmothers, and sugar and
spices for the cooks, and great round
Dranges for all the little boys, and
French dolls for all the little girls.
"Ahoy, ahoy, up there!" the old
sailer called out to the little rooster :
an the steeple. "Which way ls the !
wind? Will it blow from the west
31e-doo!" said the little tin rooster.
'Now how should I know anything
about the wind? I stand here that
ill the world may see how my tail
And the little rooster on ".'ie steeple
stood still and never moved. As for
the old sailor-why, of course, he
:ouldn't sail that day.
Down In the meadow the busy
farmer stood ready with his scythe
to cut down his hay. Before he
swung it over his shoulder, though,
he looked up at the little rooster on
the steeple. ' ,
"Halloo, up there!" he said.
* Which way Is the wind? Will it.
blow from the east to-day?" j
"Now how can I tell?" said the vain r
little rooster. "It Is no affair of mine j
which way the wind blows. I stand
liera that all the world may sen how
brightly I shine in the sunshine." j
The farmer swung his scythe. ;
Swish, swish, it went, and the yellow
hay lay in great rows along the field.
Then he raked it into round hay
jocks.: but, just as "he had finished,'
3plasb', splash, patter, patter! Ab,
the wind was come up from the east,
bringing the rain, and the farmer's
hay was quite spoiled, all because of
the foolish little rooster.
In the wee cottage by the lane,
mother dear was washing the baby's
clothes. Caps and socks and frocks
and tiny jackets there were ia a red
tub and covered with snow-white
soapsuds. Mother dear had her sleeves j
rolled to her elbows, and as she
sudsed and rinsed and wrung the ?
pretty things, she looked through the |
fines that grew round the cottage j
door and up at the little rooster on
the steeple. ?
"Will there be a soft, south wind

"I don't know, I'm sure," said tin*
little tin rooster. "You see I have

So mother dear hung all the baby's
slothes out on the line; but, alas! no

LAND OF THE SOMBRERO.
Every Mexican likes to have a Ano
hat or sombrero. These hats, with
high, pointed crowns and broad
brims, are sometimes made of costly
material and decorated with many
bands and buckles of gold and silver.
Then they weigh several pounds, and
cost, perhaps, two or three hundred
dollars. The plain sombreros are
worn by the poor Mexicans dwelling
in miserable huts in the country
places. Some of these one-roomed
homes are built""of large, sun-dried
adobe bricks. To live in one of them
must seem like living in a box, for
each has a flat roof, dirt floor, no win
dows and but one doer.
These country people take their
produce to market on their backs, or
in ox carts, which have wheel3 made
of solid wood. The wealthy people of
Mexico live in large beautif"'' homes.
Outside these buildings look rather
plain, but inside they are very rich.
Usually, in the centre of ;he house,
there is a lovely garden, so that all
tho rooms may open onto it. There
fountains play, birds sing and flowers
send forth their fragrance. In parts of
Mexico water is very hard to obtain.
Many people make a business of sell

their large, jugs. Usually ue water

At the recent meeting of the Amer
ican Street and Interurban Engineer
ing Association of Atlantic City, a
new system of street railway con
struction was. proposed. The idea
was to form the car wheels without
flanges, but Instead to place the
flanges on the rails. The new con
struction was ably presented and
many good arguments were brought
forward to show the superiority of.
such a system over tho present ono.
P. F. Bander points out that, not
r>nly the direction and intensity of
light, but its color, must be consid
ered in estimating its power to re
veal flue details. Exroriment shows
that most per?on3 are short-sighted
tor blue and violet light. When pat
terns are illuminated alternately
with'red. green and blue light tt ls
found that for ease of seeing minute
details blue and green lieht are pref
erable to red for short distances, but
that at greater distances red Ugh?
gives the best results.

TUBERCULOSIS IN THE PRISON
Per Cent, of Sufferers Is Enormous
and There Seems but One
From several Investigations that,
have been made by the National As
sociation for the Study and Preven
tion of Tuberculosis, it is1" estimated
that on an average about fifteen per
cent, of tho prison population of the
country ?3 afflicted with tuberculosis.
On this basis, out of the 80,000 prison
ers, housed in tve penal institutions
of the United States at any given
time, not less than 1^,000 are infected
with this disease. If the Philippine'
islands' and other insula? possession?,
were taken into consideration' the
number would be much larger. Some
of the pr'* ons of Pennsylvania, Kan
sas and Ohio show such shocking con
ditions with reference to tuberculosis
that many wardens admit that these
places of i detention . are death traps.
Similar conditions could be found in
almost every state, and In the major
ity of cases the only sure remedy ia
the destruction of the old buildings,^
and the erection of new ones.

told the coachman to fasten down the
side curtains of the wagonette.
