"I don't see what In tho world we

sighed Mrs. Hemming whon sho and
her husband decided, after much dis
cussion, to movo from tholr house,
which was too lonesomely big now
thnt tho children had all gono away
to homes of their own. "Our apart

"No, I don't suppose thoy do," reluc

I hate to part with somo of them.
"That's Just sontlmont, my dear. Tho
fact Is, It will bo n rollof to you whan

"Perhaps I could select Just a few

After tho second-hand dealer's visit
Humming said to his wife: "I hopo
you wero sufllclently strong-minded to

"Woll, nearly ovorythlng," nnswerod
Mrs. Hommlng. "Thoro aro n fow llt

When tho wagons drovo away load

mostly of n peculiarly lnnrtistlc po

hor rcgrots, "Charles was right," sho
said to hcrsolf. 'It would havo beon
silly to keep that ugly trumpory."

of a lot of things," sho answorod.
"How much did you pay for thom?"
"Devlin let mo havo thom cheap.

If you bought them In Egypt. I was

"A dollar aploco! And I snapped

Hommlng, trying not to look sheepish.

A real "mechanical horso" Is being
experimented with abroad. It Is a
"tractor" that Is easily hitched to any
horse-drawn vehicle, Just as a team
of horses may bo, and combines alt
the advantages of the horso with
those of tho auto truck at an exceed
ingly low price. The outfit comprises
a steel bar and couplor and sprocket
wheels designed to bo attached to the
wheels and tongue of the wagon.
There Is only one wheel on the
"horse" and that Is at the front, the
most of the support for the tractor de
pending upon the front wagon wheels
by which It is driven. The engine,
mounted under the front hood as in
an automobile, is of 40 or 00 hone
power and drives the wagon at
speod of from 8 to SO mtlea an hour,
tho latter speed only being used when
it Is designed for flro engine service.
Tho front wheel la used to steer by

angle of 85 degrees, thus giving re
markablo turning ability in narrow
streets. One of tho greatest advan

The nowcBt pest in tho west and
