The cosily furnished room was
shaded from the summer sun by win

of invalidism in every detail.
The quiet was, however, broken by
sounds from without. In an apart

the young man thought she would

"We were never separated before,

"Still, in your father's profedssio, he

"A female doctor!" said Archie.
"No, Cousin Archie, but, I hope, an
effcient nurse, and I am almost as
proud of being that as I should be to
gain a reputation as a good physician,"
she replied, quietly. "I have been
taught to try to do faithfully such
duty as lies at hand. We are not very
rich, as you know, and papa is train
ing me to fill a useful place in the
world, as far as I am capable."
"Forgive me; I was )rude."
Linnet bowed gravely, and walked
out of the room to visit certain of the
village patients whom her father had
left under her care.
Lynne was rich, but what human
being was the better for any noble use
of his weath? His home was luxu
rious, and the most elaborate invalid
devices were arranged in his bedroom
and sitting room, but he could find no
comfort that morning.
"Archie!" Aunt Emily cried aghast,
half an hour later. "You surely are
not going out in this broiling sun?"'
"Only for a walk to the village," he
"But you can send Tom for anything
you want," his anxious relativo per
"I shall not walk far.*
The sun was hot, and Archie was not
strong, in spite of his tall figure and
broad chest. Very soon he felt he
must either sit or fall down; and, very
pale, he entered a little cottage porch
and sank on a seat there.
- When the first dissy sensation had
passed he became conscious of a fa
millar volce 'on the other side of the
window near which he was seated.
"Remember," the voice said, and Ar
chie wondered at its low, sweet tone,
"you are to make no exertion for the
present. I have engaged a woman to
come here and do all the work, and
care for you. When you are quite
strong again I will,see that you have
sewing to do."

He was tll deadly pale. Without a
word, Linnet stepped into the house,
and returned with her handkerchief
wet with cold water to lay on his head.
"You'6 better postpone your next
walk till after sunset," she said, dryly;
"now, be good enough to wait :here,
and I will go for the carriage."
"No, I will walk back," Lynne per
sisted, and his cousin attempted no
further protestL Presently the two set
out on their return.
Linnet's ample sunshade was a re
lief, but Archie fully justified his
aunt's fears by the condition in which
he entered the house.
"You see what a uselcss animal I
am," Arichie said.
"I see that you chose a wrong time
to walk, after living in a cell all sum
mer," was the reply. "This room is
like a vault-I should die here!"

br. Morris hastened back to BEn
land, and as soon uas he reached Ile

A sudden dismay seled Archie: For
the first tme he reallsed how much
sunshine Linnet would carry away
with her. He studied the matter well,
and to his oousin's unbohaded amase
meat made her an offer of marriae.
"Thank you," she said, shortly. "I
do not fancy living in a private baopi

Iface, but she went on ruthlesmly, in

each a moment might have a lasting

bald Lynne walked into the room
where her father was giving her a les
son in practical chemistry.
"Uncle Rolf," he said, "Linnet ob-'
jects to 'home hospitals,' but I have 1
come to you professionally."
"My dear boy, 'what can I do for
you? Look out, Linnet-If you mix
those acids and alkalies we shall have p
an explosion!" a
"To avert which calamity," said Lin- I
net, demurely, "I will retire, while Ar- :
chie tells you of his new ailments.
She hurried away, and Archie, look
ing after her, said:
"Uncle Rolf, I love Linnet!"
"Dear me! I thought she tormented :
you to the verge of insanity," cried the ,
"So she does. Nevertheless, I want p
her for my wife. Sheobjects to nerves, P
so I have come to get rid of mine. Se- f
riously, Uncle Rolf, I want you to take b
me for your patient, and see if there is
stuff in me for a man, useful and hon
orable-a man, in short, whom you will
not object to for a son-in-law, if Linnet
will take me for a husband."
"With all my heart!" said the doe
tor. "You only want waking up to de, I
velop into a very satisfactory specrmen'
of both characters."
Linnet waxed saucy and sarcastic d
when Dr. Morris told her Archie was
to be their guest, and yet the invalid
knew that she gave him sweetest en
couragement in a thousand ways. b
It proved a hard task to follow the t
physician's rules, and he might often
have stumbled by the way-only Lin- ii
net was there to watch, to rouse him r
by her wit, or essay by her gentleness h
to help him on.
With physical strength came mental
health and a desire to be up and doing a
in the world's work. Wealth, seen p
through this healthier medium, became n
ennobled into a means of usefulness, t
and labor appeared honorable from the I
good to be wrought out by it.
It roused Linnet's respect to see how
selfishness was trodden down, how ac
tual physical pain and weakness were
conquered by resolution, and where
Linnet's respect wa" given her heart
soon followed, till she bent her proud a
head and consented. s
"Bet if I marry you." she said, half
earnestly, "I may 'be the death of v
you,' as you feared." f
Archibald Lynne only langhed at the t'
threat, and took to his heart the girl r
he had called "The plague of his life."

BEES HATCHING HENS' EGGS. pea
An Illinois beekeeper has contrived a apa
plan of hatching chicks by placing the
:ggs on top of the brood nest, directly sea
over the cluster of bees, of his bee she
aives. Out of one hundred fertile eggs pla
he claims every one hatched a good of
Itrong chick. At first thought this may she
seem a little startling, but the plan no hig
doubt is feasible, when we consider that thr
the normal temperature of a beehive is ing
too degred,. which is nearly the right wh
temperature required to incubate eggs. ner
The time required to produce a worker pie
bee from the egg is twenty-one days, qui
the same as that of a chick. a y
This certainly promises to be a step
in advance. There can be no risk of in
roasting the eggs, as is often the case abc
with an incubator, and on the other I
hand the danger of the eggs being de- ing
serted by freaky hens will be done away all
with, but we must not forget that bees fift
are sometimes freaky, too. A beehive val
would probably accommodate in the do,
neighborhood of four dozen eggs at one the

THE CULTIVATION OF CELERY. five
.The seeds may be started in a hot bed str
for early crops the plants to be trans- stu
planted as soon as they will bear hand- ing
ling, which is when they are about five wit
or six inches high. When started in the pos
open land a sheltered place should be Th
selected. The best method for trans
planting is this, to plant in trenches me
which are dug about one and one-half An
feet deep, one foot wide and the bot- -I
tom filled six or eight inches with well
rotted manure. This should be covered SB
with good soil well mixed with manure
to a depth of about three inches and sis,
trodden down slightly to make it more
compact, after this there should be two
or three inches of good soil added to set
the plants. The plants after being taken
from seed bed and succors removed kil
should be set six to eight inches apart in I
rows. The trenches in drills should be stu
three feet apart. Draw the earth around j
the plants as they advance in growth but the
leave the top until the 6nal oshlinj. This
earthing should be kept dry; an ogca- se
sional application of salt will .improve
the quality. The soil should be kept
loose around the plants and liquid man

not hurt celery, but whenever a heavy
frost is anticipated it should be looked s
after; it is best however to leave it out
as long as possible. About eour or five
weeks before celery is waned for table o'
use, the stalks should be blanched -by C
coverini with soil so as to entirely Cx
clude the light. This operation cap- g
sists in banking up the plants with earth se
on each side nearly or quite to the top.
When celery is to beset to market late bq

TO MAKE A GOOD OSAGE HEDGE. 1
First make the soil hi the hedge. Now
fine and mellow to a good depth. A foot
ueep is generally better than a less depth
under the -plants, It is preferred to
have the plants set on a slight ridge, four
to six inches abbve the general level.
Good one-year-old plants are generally
preferred to older ones. These should
be root-pruned to about ten or twelve
inches in length of root, and the top cut
back to about the same length enough
to take in the plant, placing the plant
slanting with the row, at an angle of
about forty-five degrees. This will in
duce two or more shoots to start from
each plant, insuring a thick base. The
plants should be set about one foot
apart in the row.
After being well clultivated the first
Y season, any that have failed to grow
should he replaced with good strong
plants the following spring. In June
1 of the second !rar, the young hedge
V should be cut back to about two feet
high. A year later. cut it to three or
three and one half feet, and the follow
ing June to four and a half feet, at
t which height it should be kept perma
nently. With a sharp corn knife, or
r piece of a scythe, the needed clipping is
quickly done. Sometimes two clippings
a year are needed.
P Good osage plants are generally sold
f in the. central and western States at
C about $S.5o per 0ooo.'
r I saw last spring a new way of break
- ing an old osage hedge that had been
Y allowed to grow, at random until it was
s fifteen or twenty feet high, and of little
e value as a fence. The plants were cut
e down to withinr three or four inches of
e the ground, leaving one about every
twelve to fifteen feet, five feet high.
Then a strip of woven-wire fencing,
thirty inches wide. was nailed to the
five-foot posts, with a barbed wire
I stretched higher up. The closely-cut
- stumps sent up abundant sprouts, form
- ing a fairly close hedge. The woven
e wire made it pig-proof, and the five-foot
e posts will last indefinitely as living posts.
e This experiment promises well.
Osage timber for posts is probably the
s most durable in the ground of any
f American wood, not excepting red cedar.

Who Are Interested?
The farmer, because the city, town, V.
village, church and. school are brought
nearer to him. The cost of marketing
his produce and stock is reduced. lie
is enabled to take advantage of the D.
market when prices are best. Because
good roads encourage the establish
ment of the rural free mail delivery
system, which brings newspapers to
his door. This breaks the monotony of
rural life, and brings the farmer and
his family in close touch with current
events of the State, nation and world, -
bringing a brighter life, satisfying the
restless discontent that is now driving
many of the young people from the
farm to endure the hardships of the
congested city life. Distance is meas
ared by ease and rapidity of transit.
The better the road the shorter the
The merchant is interested for bet
r ter roads. His customers are enabled
a to reach his place of trade at all sea
aens. Impassable roads ruin the best
season's trade, leaving his goods un
sold on the shelf. This in turn oper
rates to the disadvantage of the whole
Ssale merchant in the city.
a The people of the. cities and toins f
are interested, for they are dependent 1
upon the rural districts for their food se
Ssupplies. Bad roads mean a congested o
s market and abnormal prices for them, so
t aroads are in favor of good roads.
Shippers are enabled to market their 4
wares and products at all seasons, thus
equalising the market and preventing
congestion and loss in traffic.
d The vehicle makers are interested
a in better roads. The demand for their
output is greatly increased.
c The automobile and bicycle manu
facturers and dealers are interested for
better roads, for a larger market is
thereby created for these modern use-, Ii
ful and rapid machines of transit. UI
2 Manufacturers of road machinery,
a paving, cement, brick, stone, iron, steel,
a bridge and construction material ini
terests are directly concerned for bet.
