MR. USHER GOES ON STRIKE
No Vegetable Garden for Him This
Year If He Knowb Himself, and
He Thinks He Does.
"A seed catalogue arrived In this
morning's mal,." remarked Mrs. Usher
to her husband. "We might plan out
our spring garden while these long
winter evenings last."
"We will start the fire with the
seed catalogue in the morning," re
turned Usher. "There will be no gar
den this year. It Is all we can do
to buy vegetables without buying
"Last year we bought $10 worth of
seeds, $12 worth of tools and about
nine dollars' worth of- digging.
"And we had to buy our vegetables
just the same.
"This year we shall do away with
the seed, the machinery and the hired
man and have more vegetables.
"Da:-a u! Last spring after the man
had dug nine dollars out of me, and
the hardware man had tooled me out
of $12, and the seed man had seeded
me to the tune of $10, I went out one
bahny Saturday afternoon to look at
my garden. There was nothing to be
seen there except one beet and a few
- "While engaged in kiling the mil
lions of weeds I exterminated the beet
rop with one fell swoop of my trusty
bat inaccurate hoe!"
"But the vegetables are so sweet
and fresh out of your own garden!"
pleaded Mrs. Usher.
*Oh, yes, they are sweet and fresh,
all right," bleated her husband. "We
had a tomato bush last spring. We
had the bush while the stores had the
tomatoes. - We didn't buy any toma
toes. We had our own and they would
soon be ripe.
"Bucksters brought tomatoes to our
door, and the neighbors bought toma
toes piled up so high that they spilled
on the sidewalk.
"I went out and looked at our bush.
We had two little green tomatoes that
looked like peas. When tomatoes were
a nickel a peck one of those tomatoes
sickened and died, and the other got
nearly ripe on one side. . k
"When Aun Eudora broeght us five
bushels of tomatoes from her farm
our tomato bush took a sudden start
and shed tomatoes in abundance as
long as Aunt Eudora's tomatoes lasted.
-at'rs the way It is with our gar
den. The digging around Is aR the
fun we get out of it.
"Anybody who thinks that digging
Is fun has a keener sense of humor
than I have."
The Broken "Conspiracy."
The "conspiracy of silence" Is bro
ken. Of that no one can doubt. The
phrase may be suffered to lapse into
oblivion. In its day It was a menace,
and few of us would now advocate the
d'eliberate ignoring of things not to be
denied. Few of us would care to see
the rising generation as uninstructed
In natural laws as we were, as adrift
- amid the inintelllgible, or partly,-tna
teligble things of life. But surely
the breaking of silened need not imply
the opening of the lood-gates of
speech. It was never meant'byr those
who first cautiously advised ac clearer
understanding of sexual relations and
hygienic- rules that eve'body should
chatter freely .respecting these- grave
issues; that teachers, lecturers, novel
. story-writrsitsnts, dramat
tists, social workers and magazine ed
ftors should copiously Impart all they
know, or assume they know, to the
world, writes Agnes Reppler In the
Atlantic. The lack 'of restraint, the
lack of balance, the lack of sober
ness and common sense, were never
more- apparent than In the obsession
of sex which has set us all a-babbling
about matters once excluded from
the amenities of conversation.
The late Henry Townsend Martin
was one day describing to a New York
reporter his adventures In the London
"Slum butcher shops," he said, "are

"Once in "The New Cut,' I stopped
before a dreadful looking-stall of meat.
There was a platter of particularly
vile stuff called 'selected bits.'' These
selected bits the butcher was offering
to ant old lady for threepence, but'she
insisted that this was too high.
"'Take 'em for tuippence, then,' said
the batdher.' 'Best selected bits, a plat

"'I don't know: said the old lady.

''Will ye give a penny for 'em?

you pinch 'em.'"
Career of "Pig-Iron" Kelley."
-William D. Kelley, one of the found
era of. the Republican party In Penn
sylvarias, and for many years a con'
spicuous figure in the public life of
the nation, was born in Philndelphia

Atavism in Dogs.
Dogs, probably the earliest of do.
nesticated animals, when transferred
to a tropical country, such as centrai
africa, lose in a few gcnerations most
)f the characteristics they have n.
juired in Europe, ad revert more a..d
nore to the type of the jackal and the
yolf. Theh their cars, whatever their
)reed, tend to become pointed, their
,oats turn sandy or rufous and theiz
)ark becomes a howl. Some attempt
ias been made to show that this is the
result of disease and resembles the
%ffect of malaria on the human consti
ution. Yet the Egyptian dog of Phar,

ho monuments, these very charact-r
sties; and as he was certainly domes
