MEASURING CORN IN CRIB.
A heaped bushel contains 2,748
'cubic inches. To find the number of
bushels of corn in a crib it is there
fore necessary merely to multiply to
gether the length, width and height
in inches and divide the product by
2,748. The number of bushels of
shelled corn will be two-thirds of
the quotient. If the sides of the crib
are slanting, it will be necessary to
multiply together one-half the sum
of the top and bottom widths, the
height and length. Garden and

stood in front of Sam White's drug
emporium and glared at the moldv
mince pie that the ladies of the
South Side Methodist church kept
in the window as an indication thai
there were choice viands to be pur
chased within. But Philip was not
admiring the pie, whiclj had been
there so long that it might be said
to have accrued historic interest as

He had been sa jubilantly happy
when Pansy Borden promised to
marry him, and though she had
made him promise to keep the en
gagement a secret he had only ad
mired her the more forfhat, as Pan
sy had said that it would distress
her mother to know , that she was to
leave home so soon. It was sweet of
Pansy to tliink of her mother.
However, Philip was human, and
when his best friend, Ben Davis, had
begun to act in an insufferably pat
ronizing way he could not refrain
from giving Ben a hint of the glad
news, especially as Ben was a great
admirer of Pansy. "1 know a se
cret," he had casually remarked,
"that would make you jump if you
"Humph," retorted Ben, scorn
fully, "I know one that's worth two
of yours." i
That was too much for human en
durance, and having sworn ' his
friend to secrecy, Philip told him
the wonderful tidings. "Pansy Bor

and even his red hair seemed to

The whole world seemed to Philip
to give way, though it was only the
cracker box on which he had been
silting. He sprang up and seized
Ben by the throat. "It's a lie!" he
declared, angrily. "You can joke
me about anything else, Ben, but not
When he was excited Ben stut

Philip loosened his grip on his
throat. There is no use in trying
to choke a stuttering friend. "But,
Philip, she's wearing my ring." The
anguish in Ben's tones was genuine.
Philip sat' down and buried his I
race in his hands. "Forgive me,"
he said huskily; "she's wearing
It was tho quick-witted Ben who
had whispered presently, "Say, Phil,
do you reckon she's wearing any
other rings? Every man in this
town is m love with Pansy, and even
that fresh traveling man, Arthur
Bering, was wild about her."
From old Isaacson, who sold dia
mond rings on the dollar-down-and-50-cents-forever
plan, they had
learned the ghastly truth. Henry
Blaine, Ely Channing and "Willie Jo
Hall had also purchased rings for
Miss Borden. Old Isaacson was
quite elated and was planning to
enlarge his store.
So it was that Philip Grantwood
had not waited long in front of
White's Emporium before four other
figures stepped out of the darkness
and the whole party started gloom
ily for tho Borden home. They had
decided to go together to Pansy and
crush her with the hideousness of
her conduct. Knowing the girl's
ready wit, they had prepared before
hand a document setting forth in
solemn language their righteous in
dignation, their desire to bo freed
immediately from their engagements
and their emphatic determination
jilmt all friendship with such a por
json should cease. Philip was to
leurn tho speech and act as spokes
man for tho crowd.
Pansy came in immediately,
bringing sunshine and gayoty with
her. "I'm go glad to see you," she
cried, with the most disarming
friendliness. "And all five of you
at once! Why, you frightened Polly
so that she can't say her prayers."
The five looked at Philip and
Phdip cleared his throat and began
m a rapid mumble. "Wo have come
( vi,u!ji, Misa Borden, to ask you for
an explanation " He paused, for
how. could he aty theae drcadfttl
thing to Pansy, with her dear, dis
ordered curls, her merry, brown eyes
and her sweet impartial smile ? "Oh,
Paney," ho blurted out, "how could
you do it?"
Pansy glanced from one to tho
other of her lovers, then the gaycty
faded from her face. "Oh," she
said softly, "you've told each other."
Pansy did not seem angry, but
she was deeply hurt. "Oh," she re
peated, "you've told and you prom
ised not to tell." She put her hand
into her dress and pulled out a small
linen bag, opened it and shook five
shining diamond rings into her lap.
Each was tied with a different col
"Keep mine," cried Henry Blaine,
savagely, as she held it toward him.
"I don't ever want to see it again."
AncV tho other boys echoed, "Keep
"No," said Pansy, sadly, "I could
not marry any of you now. I thought
that you could be trusted with a se
cret, but I see that you can't.
This was so manifestly unfair, so
preposterous, that it simply took the
boys' breath away, nad she been
a man they could have answered her;
being a woman and Pansy they
actually began to feel guilty.
One by one they slunk up to tho
sofa and received back their dia
mond rings, then Pansy opened a
note that had fallen from her dress

den, "to Ask You for an Explanation."
when she took out the Dag. "I sup
pose," she murmured, "that I'll have
to marry Arthur Dering now."
She began reading from the note :
"My Dearest Pansy : I shall be back
in Houston Center on the sixteenth
of April and shall hope "
"But no, I won't read you when
it's to be, because that is a secret
and you might tell."
She stood up, and the boys, aghast
at this last piece of information, un
wound their legs from the rungs of
their chairs and filed sadly out. All

for though his pride told him to
leave this perfidious woman, his feet
refused to move.

they were alone, "aren't you ashamed
Poor little Pansy wilted at once,
and large, unmanageable tears began
to trickle down her cheeks. She
came over to Philip and buried her
face in his coat sleeve. "Yes," she
sobbed, "I certainly am. But it was

the enemy. "Don't cry," he begged,
tenderly, and then tho same old
