a Theme.
For a Beautiful Allegory by Mrs.
Scott HorticulturaP Meeting.
The May meeting of the Summit
County Horticultural society was
held at the beautiful home of Mrs.
Cyrus Bettes and son on Home av.,
one mile south of the village of Cuy
ahoga Falls. It was an ideal May
day, with ideal people, who had
ideal thoughts, so that altogether the
meeting was an. ideal one, long to be
remembered by the many members
and friends who-were present to en
joy the good things always to be had
at these meetings. After a sumptuous
dinner the president called the meet
ing to order.- The minutes of the
April meeting were read by the sec
retary and approved. The report on
flowers by Mrs. Schenerrman, of
Hudson, was lengthy and elaborate.
A large table at one side of the sitting
room was covered with beautiful
flowers. Some old familiar friends,
such as our-grandmothers cultivated
in their gardens half a century ago,
were smiling pleasantly and nodding
graciously 'to their newer cousins
which stood beside them.
A bouquet of iceland poppies,
brought by Miss Ellett, of Spring
field, were beauties, and attracted
much attention. They are of hardy
and of easy culture, and their attrac
tive colors and free blooming, com
mends them to all lovers of flowers.
B. A. Bobiuette of Northfield, had
on exhibition a golden russett apple
which was very firm and showed the
good keeping quality of this variety.
Dr. Lyder of- Akron, told how he
kept apples in excellent condition by
placing them in stone jars in the
cellar, and keeping them well cover
ed with stone lids.
From the discussion on Orchards
it was quite evident that the pros
pects for apples and cherries, and in
some localities pears, never was bet
ter. While peaches and plums would
no doubt be scarce, present indica
tions are that small fruit will be
abundant, with perhaps the excep
tion of raspberries. Mrs. C. E.
Barnes on "Botany," read a report of
the cultivation "of the lily, which
should be remembered by all who
intend to grow these beautiful flow
ers. The bulbs should be planted
in the fall and at least six inches
deep, in rich, mellow soil.
The essay read by Mrs. O. "W.
Scott of .Tallmadge, on "Buried
Treasures,'" while not strictly a hor
ticultural production, was suggestive
of' much thought. The discussion
which followed was very interesting.
The essay by Mrs. Scott, follows:
"In reading these thoughts I make
no plea or apology. I simply ask
you to apply to them, 'Hawthorne's
"Receipt.'
"Simple, delightful, breakfast,
dinner or supper appropriate for
whose components may 'always be
found within you. Requiring no
visit to cellar or store. Take a gill
of forbearance, four ounces oi pa-H
tience, a pinch of submission, a
handful of grace; mix well with the
milk of the best human kindness.
Serve at once, with a radiant smile
on your face."
"BURIED TREASURES."
"My name had been put down for
an essay at this meeting and the
committee had told the society that
consent was given and I was spend
ing time and strength thinking.
Shall I contradict? When looking
the Ohio Farmer over for an inspira
tion this stransre nuery struck my
eye: "Buried Treasure. Can any
one tell me bow" to find a buried
treasure, when you know there is
such, yet do not know where and how
to locate it? Any information will
be gladly received by Mrs. Farmer."
"Buried Treasure, and for a farm
er's wife. It certainly can't be com
posed of muclr.gold or silver. But
come to think of it, perhaps it is. One
of our members tells how he buried
gold, time, feed and patience turning
the ice house into a hennery. An
other valuable member tells how he
buried the horticultural profits try
ing to mix farming with his horti
culture work.
"But what are woman's treasures?
I answer: Husband and children,
and through them the hope of better
ing the world. Now no woman can
take good care of her treasures un
less she first takes care of herself.
Selfish you say. No. Nothing but
every-day good housekeeping will
ruin the health and spirits of any
woman, and such a woman can
make a whole family unhappy.
"You say, 'What makes her work
so hard? Why don't she take more
recreation? Let the children help,
or keep hired help?' Ah ! my friend
usually it is for the want of money.
The principal war cry now days is:
How shall I make more money?'
I don't think it is because we" as a
generation love money more, but be
cause we have more call for it. You
say, 'why so?' Well, in the good
olden times no one was in debt, and
all, as a rule, put up with what they
had. Now every nation is in debt:
overy state, county, township, and
used to be thought that the children
on the farm should go to school
through the winter months only, and
the rest of the time help their par
ents. And .some great substantial
men and women grew from such
homes. If there was a particularly
smart child he in some way found
his way to the front.and appreciated
it, too, when he got there. We once
had a young man 17 years old work
ing for us. His father was a well-to-do
Irishman, thrifty and saving.
This boy studied shorthand even
ings, noons, any time, while he was
working for us. yet he did not neg
lect his. work. Today he fills a trusty
official position. You say such boys
are scarce. Yes, they are, and so are
such boys or men even after
their parents have shoved -them
through college. Today children
must go to scliool, no matter how
little liking they have for books, or
even if their constitutions are not
strong. Oh, no! We must keep near
the standard .even if we bury prec
ious treasures on . the way. Look
where you will and you can see
homes with the parents depending
on lured help, and in debt, and yet
spending money keeping children in
school or in some Dosition; all the
time living on hope, never complain
ing. Parents rejoice in what they do
for their children, until, alas, how
many.drop on the way and become
'Buried Treasures." Yet, is it wise?
Read the life of Frank Calloway,
who is on trial for Killing his wile in
St. Louis. He was a fair, average
student, and if he had no defined
ambitions, his parents had them for
him and decided to make a doctor of
their son. Of course it cost money,
but Frank had a brilliant career
ahead, and would be the staff and
comfort of their old age. It was the
old story. A handsome, petted boy.
out from under his mother's watchful
Leye. All was made easy tor nun,
and now see the end, '.Buried Treas
ure.' "The standard today seems to be to
save the children from cares, making
life hard for the parents and, I think,
hard on the children, too. They
don't seem to have time to be young.
Why by flf teen they are young ladies
and gentlemen. 'Buried Treasure.' I
don't think the coming generation
will be able to appreciate this man's
longing: "Make me a child again. I
like to be a boy again, without a woe
or care, with freckles scattered on my
face and hayseed in my hair. I'd
like to rise at 4 o'clock and
do the chores, and saw the wood.
and feed the hogs, and herd thej
hens, ami watch the bees, and take
mules to drink, and teach the tur
keys how to swim so that they
wouldn't sink, and milk the cows,
bring the wood, and churn, and
churn, and churn, and wear my
brothers cast off clothes, and walk
four miles to school and get a licking
every day for breaking some old
rule. And then get home at night
and do the chores again, and crawl
wearily upstairs and see my little
bed and hear dad say: 'That worth
less boy he isn't worth his bread.'
I'd like to be a boy again a boy has
so much fun. I guess there is noth
ing pleasanter than herding bees and
chasing bees and doing evening
chores.'
"But, you say, we are in this stan
dard's power and must keep follovy
ing the rounds. I don't think so," I
say it is wrong to let public opinion
affect all we do. Our nation must
have a new White House, because
we are the equal of any nation and
we must show it by grandeur. Our
state and-county buildings must be
the best. Why? Oh! to show that
we are just as good and well off as
anybody.
"Farmer, farmer's wives and chil
dren, to a certain extent, buy, build,
and educate with due regard to this
standard of today in spite of their
better judgment.
"The power the standards of today
have over us, makes one think of.
Uncle Ephnam's mule.
"Is you gwine ter let that mewel
do as he pleases?" asked Uncle
Ephriam's wife. 'Whar's yoh will
power?.'
" 'My will power?' he answerered.
"My will power's all right. You
jest "want ter come out hyar an'
measure dis 'er mewel's won't pow
er." "I believe if we co'uld throw off
this yoke, and each family solve its
own problems regardless of public
opinions, and have our children more
of a help and less)expense, that farm
me couiu ue made proutable, and
farm life alluring to most of our
children. I believe children would
have more work and less tempta
tions. Patents more lest and fewer
'buried treasures.' You say talk is
easy, but lifting the burden would be
hard. So it would be.
"I never saw "Taking up the white
man's burden" pictured easy and
pleasing to the lifter but once. And
that was the picture of a poor
drunken white man on the ground in
a drunken stupor, and a darkey tak
ing a whiskey bottle trom his pocket.
Some one said: Here, you nigger.
what are you doing? He replied:
"Taking up the white man's bur
den."
'Some one says it is too late; we
might have broken loose in the be
ginning, but now there is no hope.

CLINTON.
Obituary Lewis Smith was born
July 9, 1818, in Biskirchen, Rhine-
1'russia, Uermany, and died May 10,
1939, at his late residence near Clin
ton. His father, John Adam Smith,
who was the recorder and school
teacher of their home town,emigrated
to this country with his wife, Catha-
rine(Weaver) and family when Lewis
was only three years old. Before
they were permitted to land, while
the men were all ashore, the ship was
boarded by robbers anil Mr. Smith
lost $7,500 in cash. He worked for a
while in the employ of a relative near
Baltimore and later York, Pa., and
Canton, O., but finally he set
tled on a small farm east of Canal
Fulton. Here, amid many priva
tions and much hard work he
brought up his two girls and one son,
Lewis. On July 10, 1845, Lewis
Smith and Elizabeth Ivroft Avere
united in marriage. After living on
several different farms a number of
years he bought the farm now occu
pied by his son, Jacob, whither he
removed in 1853, worked the soil,
built the home and reared his family.
He removed thence to his late resi
dence, in 18S8. His first wife died
Dec. 10, 1876, and he was married to
Mrs. Louisa Fritz May 15, 1877. Mr.
Smith is the head of a large family.
Four children have preceded
him in death and there re
mains his wife and sister, Mrs. Eliz
abeth (Smith) Bowman, four sons,
J. Adam, William B., David C, and
Jacob, and 22 direct grand children;
with his first wife, one step-daughter,
Mrs. Louis Ruch, four grand
children and two great grand child
ren; with his second wife, three step
daughters and 10 grand children,
Mrs. Max Meckes, . Mrs. Geo.
Vantilburg and Mrs. Milton
Benner all of Ashland, Ohio.
In infancy, ho was baptised by
Rev. Binglo, in Germany. He was
confirmed in the Reformed church
in Canal Fulton, in 1810, by Rov. J.
W. Haun, and under him beoamo a
prominent member in' tho Reformed
church in Manchester. When the
Lutheran church in Clinton was
started he took a prominent part in
the building of tho edifice and wel
fare of the congregation. Ho has
been an earnest worker, a faithful
member, and a prominent official,
an older and trustee, which office ho
still occupied at death. His last ill
ness and the immediate cause of
death was accompanied with distress
and pain. In November, 1897, we
was stricken with a light stroke of
paralysis. Though partially recov
ered therefrom, he lflSver again
regained his full strength.
About two months after his 80th
birthday his fatal disease, dropsy,
attacked him. He rallied once more,
but the extreme cold of the latter
part of this winter again prostrated
him. For ten days preceding his
death he could not rest except when
sitting in one position. Finally on
the morning of the day of his death
he was carefully tended, dressed and
laid on his bed by his doctor and
nurse. Here he lay till evening,
when he peacefully passed away, as
so often he had earnestly wished and
prayed for. The funeral services
were conducted May 12th at 1 p.m.
by his pastor at the Lutheran church
of Clinton, and his body was interred
in the cemetery near by. A large
concourse of relatives, friends and
associates from the neighborhood
attended. The following were pres

CLEVER MILITARY TRICK-
The Stratngem liy 'Which Sir Francli
Vere Defeated the Spiinlxli.
When Philip II debated the qnestion
of coercing with fire and sword the
Dutchman, who did cot like the taies
which they thenielves did not vote, the
Dnke of Alva counseled violent meas
ures, for in his eyes the rebels weie
only "men of butter." jKeverthelesa he
fonnd that these men, so fond of cows
anil bens, could hold his veterans at
bay. finally overcome them in the field,
and after SO years leave poor Spain "a

Indeed in time of war country folk
with baskets of eggs and butter escited
no suspicion even to alert sentinels.
Taking advantage of this fact. Sir
Francis Vere determined to recapture

also with daggers and pistols inside
their clothes, they were ferried cciu
the river by twos and threes. They sat
near the gate of the fort beingalready,
at the break of day, chatting and ges

argument about the rise or fall of mar

Then, according to arrangement, Yere
sent some cavalry forward, as if ap
proaching, and the pretended country
people ran in feigned terror toward the
fort. The gates were at once thrown
open to receive them. They all streamed
in, threw off their disguises, and in a
few minutes were in possession of the
forts of the town, where the gallant Sir
Philip Sidney afterward lost his life by

HIGH TONED BOOK AGENTS.
Bleu Who Only Sell Volumes Worth
From .v.0 to $.00.
"There is a distinct upper class of
book agents who never come in contact
with 'the general pnblic," remarked
Mr. Charles II. Meyers. "I have been
interested in art pnhlications for a
number of years and know most of the
tiptop salesmen in the country. They
handle books that range from 50 to
$500 in price and only call on people
who figure on certain select lists. These
lists arc the result of the cullings of
years, and, combined, they represent
nearly all of the high class book bnyers
of the United States. Each publishing
house has its own collection of names,
.and they az-e valued highly.
"I call to mind one firm that failed
and went ont of business several years
ago and its roster of buyers was consid
ered its very best asset. It was pur
chased for something like $5,000. Tho
class of books handled by the agents to
whom I refer wonld greatly astonish
the everyday patron of the shops. They
are printed in very limited editions,
and every refinement of mechanical art
is lavished on their preparation. Some
times the edition numbers only 25 or
30, and as soon as it is off the press the
typo is taken down and distributed.
The illustrations are frequently water
color paintings or artists' proofs of
etchings, and it is quite common for
the vignette letters to be tinted by hand.
"Such books are never advertised,
but are easily disposed of to the inner
circle of rich connoisseurs. The agents
who take the orders are the princes of
the business. I know on j who makes
easily 10,000 a year, and they are
nearly all well to do. They are continu
ally on the go, but if yon were to en
connter one of them at a hotel the
chances are yon would never gness his
vocation. What are the topics of the
books they sell ? Oh ! They range frcm

A Marl Tvrnln Story.
Apropos of the Portuguese reis (pro
nounced 'rays), when Mark Twain vis
ited Fayal some years ago one of his
companions invited him to dine, with
eight others, at tho principal hotel in
that happy island. As soon as tho cloth'
was romoved and the wine placed ou
the tabletho host called for tho bill,
which am'onnted to 21,700 reis.
"Go, leave me to my misery, boys!"
ejaculated the nnhappy man. "There
isn't money enough in tho ship to pay
that bilL I nm a mined community..
Landlord, this is a mean swindle.
Here's 150, and it's allyou'll get. I'll
swim in blood beforo I'll pay a cent
more."
The, landlord looked hiirprised, hut
immediately had his little account
translated "into n language that a
Christian could understand," when it
was found that, at the rato of 1,000
reis to a dollar, thu demand actually
amounted to 21.70. More refreshments
were ordered forthwith. Cincinnati

"Xow, remember, love, to be sure anil
be at the ntation In time, as the train
stops but a moment. Wear something
large anil dark to conceal your liguro ami
keep your -veil drawn closely over jour
face. Don't sj)cak; some ono may be near
who will recognize your voice. I-et just a
corner of your handkerchief be vi.siulo and
I shall recognize you."
Old Dr. Ilawlcy got out of the cars at
Jliddleton, where ho was existing to
meet his Cousin Tom's widow, that ho
hadn't seen for ten years or moro. !
The doctor was a widower of some
years' standing, and, his sister having just
died, he calculated on having tho old lady
keep house for him, if everything suited.
It was growing dusk, and, putting on
his spectacles, ho peered carefully around
for tho object of his search.
"That's her," hu muttered, as ho caught
a glimpse of a figure s-o muffled up in a
waterproof and hood that nothing elso
could bo clearly discerned but that it was
evidently a woman. "Polly Muggins all
over! Afraid as ever of all tho male crea
tions and as fearful of showing her face as
when she was In her teens! But thero
ain't no time to lose." .
Tho train came, thundering up to tho '
depot, and, drawing the muffled figure's
arm in his-, which seemed to mako no re
sistance, tho two got on.
They had scarcely disappeared when
Philip Ainslio came hurrying up. '
Ho looked around with a disappointed
air, and then, perceiving a femalo figure
enveloped in a largo cloak and clofcly
veiled, Ids face brightened.
As his eyo caught the gleam of a hand
kerchief, ho eagerly approached.
"My own darling!" Jio whispered,
stretching out ono hand to relieve her of
her traveling bag and with the other draw
ing her arm in his. "I was afraid you had
disappointed mo. This way. Wo have no
timo to lose."
Instantly tho arm was twitched away
from his with a forco that nearly sent him
over backward.
"Your darling: indeed !" said a sharp,
wiry voice, that sent a thrill of terror to
his soul. "What do yo mean by such im
pudence, yo sassy, good fur nothin jacka
dandy?" Tho speaker had thrown hack her veil,
revealing to Ainslie's-liorrified gazo a face
as unlike that of sweet Jennie Armstrong
ns it is possible to conceive.
"I I beg ten thousand pardonst ma'am.
It's all a mistake. I"
"Yes, an I should ruthcr think it was a
mistake-!" was tho wrathful rejoinder.
"An it's a-mistake that yo hadn't better
mako ag'in not with me. Goin to steal
my ridicule, wasn't ye?"
The old lady gavo a closer look at tho
object of her wrath.
"Why, bless me! If it ain't Phil Ains
lio, whose father lived nest door to mo an
who left his own lawful, married pardner
an run away with oldVtkin's wife. Oh,
ye needn't look so strange, ye deceitful,
two faced, smooth tongued vilyun. I
know yo!"
A crowd had now begun to gather
around, and, without a word of defense or
denial, tho discomfited man slunk away.
In the meantime tho cars containing
Dr. Hawley and hiscompanion started on.
As tho doctor conducted his ward to a
seat he noticed, with sonic feurprise, tho
tremor that shook her frame.
"I hono I didn't keep you waiting long,
ma'am," lie said as ho prepared to tako a
seat by her side.
Jennie started at tho sound of his voice,
and, throwing back her veil, gavo the
doctor a look of terror and dismay, who
in his turn stared at her in equal aston
ishment.
"Dear, dear!" sho cried, wringing her
hands. "What shall I do? "Where is Phil
ip? What will he, think of me?"
"This is a most unlucky blunder," said
tho doctor, in almost equal distress. "Tell
me tho iiamo of your friend, and perhaps
I can find him."
"Ainslie."
"Philip Ainslio?"
"Yes."
Dr. Hawley lopked curiously into that
innocent, girlish face.
Jennie now began to fear that sho had
been too communicatis o to a stranger and
her cheeks flushed painfully.
"Do you know himf" sho faltered.
"Better than I wish I did. Ho married
the daughter of a friend, and"
Jennie's faco whitened to tho lips.
"Married!" sho cried. "Philip mar
ried! No, no, it cannot cannot be!"
Dr. Hawloy gazed with a look of grave
pity into tho eyes that were lifted with
such piteous entreaty to his.
"My dear young lady, ho certainly Is
married in fact. I witnessed tho marriage
myself. I sco how it is; tho heartless
scoundrel has deceived you, as ho has so
many others."
With a faint moan likothatof a wound
ed dove, Jcnnio leaned her head back on
tho seat, whilo bitter tears stole quietly
from beneath tho closed lashes.
Tho good doctor's heart was moved with
compassion.
"There, there, my child," ho said, lay
ing his hand gently on hers. "Don't
griovo so; think how much worso it might
h.avo been. God has been very good to
you."-
Tho doctor and Jcnnio got out nt tho
next station, taking the next train back,
