SHOWING OFF A GUEST.
The Innkeeper Was Determined Fes
senden Should Appear.
Ou night while ex-Secretary of the
rreasury Fessenden was on a political
mission to the northern part of Maine
be stopped at a small hotel.
In the center of the house was a big
tove that warmed two rooms. In one
of the arartments Judge Fessenden
established himself and prepared to
take proper comfort during the even
ing. Just as he had got well located
with a book the landlord, a six foot
French Canadian. came in.
"Exctise me. 'selr."* said he. "but Mr.
Ed Wiggone of Maysville, she be in de
odder room. an' she wan' to see Mr.
"Tell Mr. Wiggin I'll be in a little
later." said Judge Fessenden, turning
another leaf in his book.
The landlord went out. He returned
in a moment. "Mr. Wiggone she send
his compliments. an' she say dat she
wan' Mr. Fessendeen right away."
The interruption just at that mo
ment rather nettled the judge, who
was in no way accustomed to dictator
ship. He sent back such a sharp re
ply that it was easily seen that the
landlord was cut by his asperity. In
just thirty seconds the landlord was
back. Judge Fessenden raised his
eyes to find the man staring at him
with a look of desperate resolve. With
suppressed excitement in his tones the
tall landlord spoke.
"Mr. Wiggone say she wan' see Mr.
Fessendeen quickl, an' she gues' o' de
house, an' I say she gon' to see him."
Forthwith the big landlord swooped
down or. the astonished gentleman,
seized him, tucked him under his arm
and strode across into the room of the
peremptory gentleman from Maysville.
"Mr. Wiggones," calmly said the
landlord, as matter of fact as though
he had just delivered a pitcher of ice
water, "here be Mr. Fessendeen." He
set the indignant "caller" down on a
hrahndnn retired smilingly.

Process by Which the Odor of Flowers
Flowers that are to be used in the
manufacture oV perfumes are always
gathered at nightfall or quite early in
the morning. when the dew is upon
them. Before they are gathered, how
ever, receptacles are prepared for them
in the shape of large frames, over
which are stretched cotton cloths well
saturated with olive oil or almond oil.
The cut flowers are brought in and are
thick-1 spread on a frame. Then an
other frame is fitted over it. and that
in turn is well spread with flowers.
Then a third frame is fitted over the
second spread of flowers, and thus the
work goes on u-itil a huge pile of
flowers is prepared.
This flower benp Is left for two days,
at the end of which time the flowers
are removed from the frames and re
placed by fresh ones. The frames are
filled and emptied every two days un
til two weeks have passed. Then the
cloths are detached from the frames
and placed under great pressure, and
all the oil is pressed out of them. The
oil thus obtained is heavily charged
with the fragrance of the flowers, and
it is mised with double its weight of
very pure rectified spirit and put in a
vessel called a "digester," which is
simply a porcelain or block tin kettle
that fits in another kettle. When in
use the outer vessel is filled with boil
In this vessel the mixture of oil and
spirits "digests" for three or four days.
Then, after having cooled, the spirit is
decanted into another vessel, holding
the same quantity of fragrant oil. and
the digesting process is repeated. Aft
er being thus digested three times the
spirit is found to have taken up enough
of the perfume, and it is then decanted
from the oil for the third and last timle
through a tube, one end of which is
filled with cotton wool to serve as a
filter. The fluid thus prepared is call
To most people who have had a real

physical or mental, or starved by sor

beyond their years, "Alice's Adven

afield, the children of Kenneth Gra
hame's "Golden Age" are real people,
and "Peter Pan" is more than a de
lightful play. Lewis Carroll and Mr.
Grahaame and Mr. Barrie have all told
the truth, because with real children
things are always being "made be
lieve" just a little different from what
they actually are. Playing house Is a
fig tree where your roof is made by
broad leaves and where wide branches
make your floor, your successive sto
ries, your easy stairways; playing ship
on a sofa or in an invalid's chair;
playing street cars with chairs for
horses and quarreling as to which child
should be conductor and which driver
-that was before the days of electric
ity; playing that you are a horse eat
ing hay In your stall, "a real horse,
you know," as a child said to me last
summer; playing wild animals in the
most grewsome places until you are
paralyzed with terror and afraid of
yourself In the dark; "making believe"
in every instance that you are grown
up or different from what you really
are-that is a wonderfully rich life.

school address, "a rich landlord while
making the round of his tenants' cot

whose beauty much impressed him.
"In the shabby front room of the
cottage the landlord talked for awhile
with the little girl, and as lie rose to
go an unwonted feeling of kindliness
warmed his heart.
"'Let me sec.' he said, fishing in his
pockets-'let me see if I haven't some
thing to give to this dear little girl.'
"And, smiling and chuckling, he went
through pocket after pocket. Finally
in his hip pocket he found a pepper
mint drop, a white peppermint drop.
He dusted the fluff and lint from it
and extended it gayly to the little girl.
"'Here we are,' he cried. 'I thought
we had something. Here is a nice
peppermint drop for you. And now,'
he ended. 'what will you do with it?'
