Th, lady's tone was a little mora concilia

"Julia, I will find out what a profemional
pianist will charge for playing the piano to

"If you ware not a perfect simpleton you

This question of the utilisation of talent
had been logically met and settled good
while before, but the hinderanoss in the way
of putting her theories into practice had
been hard u overcome. Her sister, had

Clark Durivage rode aloug by the side of
th landnu, and rbattwl with tb young la
dies. For the first time sine Florence had
decided not to wear any more "cast offs" her
courage failed her. hhe felt it to bee humil
iating truth that she cored more for this
man's good opinion than for anything else in
the world; to think that shs was quite Inde
pendent of remark or c-ritictitm from any
other quarter, but not from blin, filled her
with confusion and alnrm. Mr. Durivage
had been the only man she had met in society
who had t.tlked to her as if she wero possessed
of an eiial intelligence.
Miss Annable canvassed the subject very
thoroughly in these few minutes. Her scorn
of her own wenknetei, as shown by the pres
ence of this man, acted like a spur to her con
science. "The die Is cast," she told herself, as Mr.
Durivage bade her good evening. "I will
not wear jags, and so must play Jigs."
The young ludy did not estimate her mu
sical talent at Its true value. It was almost a
case of g.mius. Hhe could piny the works of
ine moat mrorcn composers, and with a power
nd eiprewio,, a ba h delighted the mostcrhV-Ta
icaL And so it came to pass that Miss Flor
ence Annable was eiigagod at regular pro
fessional price to play for a party "t the
house of the wealthy and distinguished Mrs.
Van Cortland. H.-r sietors were kotb pres
ent, but neither of them came near her during
the evening, and in this way the world found
out there had hrvn a quarrel.
"Oooii evening. Miss Florence."
"Qood evening. Mr. Durivage."
"It la rather singular there is no one her
to play but you," the gentleman remarked.
'I bar been waiting a half Lour to Invite
you to dance."
"It is not in the leant singular, Mr. Duri
vage," saiii the musK-ian, smiling heroically,
"for I am regularly employed to play for
Mrs. Van Cortland's guests this evening."
The plunge was made, the worst was over,
nd Florence (ylt that she could look herself
squarely In tb face when th evuulng was
"And you you have str'tck out in this
way for yourself"
There was a strange quality l.i the gentle
man's voic that his ccmpau.on did not un
derstand. "Struck out" Miss Annabl- Imictiingly
answer?!. "That's a good phraee. It requires
muscle, I assure you."
"But your sisters. Miss Florence T
"They are here. You must have seen them.

Please listen to it critically. It is my own
The music was a success. The applause and
excitement that followed its conclusion
amounted to an ovation. Mr. Durivage drew
near the piano and read the title.
"Lsdies and gentlemen," be said. In loud,
clear tones, "the name of the original quad
rille which has an delighted us is lUgs and
Jags and Velvet Downs.' "
There came a time when Florence Annable
could tell her friend, Mr. Durivage, the
whole story, and the following is the sub
stance of bis reply:
"I deteriniueil," be said, "to woo and win
you that night at Mrs. Van Cortland's. I
bad cared for you from the first day of our
acquaintance, but bow could I help feeling
that you might be like your sisters ultra
fashionable, purse proud, regarditil only of
appearances. What kind of helpmeets would
your sisters make if misfortune should over
take their busbamNr Aud then, Florence, I
have always maintained that it was ju4 as
reprehensible for a woman to be idle and de
pendent as for man. As my wife, there
will be no need for you to continue your pro
fessional career, but your talent must never
be neglected, and for two reasons: First, be
a use it will always be our greatest source of
enjoyment, and next, because every woman
should always hold in bar hands the means of
support" True Flag.

A Stanly Centenarian.
The guardimii, of the KilT.-l tower In f'ari

a man UM years old, who wished to ascend
the great tower.
He was quite willing, however, to avail
himself of the elevator, for, though be Is able
to walk several miles a day on level ground,
and carries his cane a a "switch," and not as

Waste of ( tml Hue to Exposure.
The waste of coal by exposure to the weath
er has been variously computed and depends
very much upon the nature aud quality of
tiia coal and the climate to which It It ex
posed. Soft coal suffers the greatest amount
of loss, as It crumb to dust by the action
of tb sun, air and raiu; It loss In bulk 1
calculated to amount to VJ per cent, per an
num, aud It deteriorates in quality much
more than hard coal. Uurd coal exposed to
the weather lose Its bulk to the extent of
about 8 per cent, per annum. On the whole,
It is much more economical to place cool un
der rover, as while sheltered it retains its
qualify and suffers little lost. Anothar seri
ous danger is also thus avoided spontaneous
eonbustion, which Is attributed to rain fall
ing upon coals after a long drought, causing
the small or slacky portion to sweat and ig

P.HSTIN(1 COOPS FOR I.AKUK CHICKS.
The coup pictured above is from Farm
Poultry; it is 7 feet long by 82 inches
wide; in 2 feet hili at the hack and 8
feet hich in front. The roof ends and
back side are of half inch matched pine,
the front Is-ing nil laths except a atrip of
board nt i-.ich corner for HtilTetiing. Two
nawu of S by 3 Rcuntlitig, slightly round-
ml on ton. run the whole lenirth and are
foot aimrt, beinc wc urolv milled to a
frame of furring. 1 by 8 stuff, 9 inches
from the ground. To this frame are
nailed the ends, buck side and front cor
ner boards, aud into the top is then fit
ted a frame of inch fxii;ire HttifT (furring
split in halves is excellent) to nail the
roof hoards to and HtilTcn it. A coop like
this will comfortuhly bouse twenty-five
to thirty pullets till they are nearly
grown; can lie easily moved by one man
on a wheelbarrow: is easily moved to
fresh protin.l to clean it, or can lie tipped
up and the droppings removed, and is a
ierfect shelter for summer.
If they are to lie used in the spring or
fall, when the nights are cool, an im
provement would lie to make a front of
half inch hoards and binge it at the top
edge, so it could lie swung outward and
upward, and, with folding legs at the
bottom corners, would become a roof to
shelter the flock from ruius.
If placed in the open field in an ex
posed situation a coup like this may be
tipped over by a high wind. This can
be prevented by putting a flat stone on
each front corner of the roof.
The gate space in front gives access to
the whole inside when the pullets are to
be removed. The gate is made of laths
nailed to two inch square strips, the left
band ends of which are long enough to
lip in Is-hind the lath front, the right
hand side being secured by one or two
buttons, as suits the taste of the owner.
When cablage are wanted in the
spring only they may lie taken up, roots
and all. and laid on the ground, roots
up, as dose together as they will lie, the
cablmge part just covered with soil.
A IfcVICB FOR wintering: CaBBAGK.
When tho cablmge is wanted for
market or use during winter a good
plan is shown in the illustration, which
is d. -scribed by Rural New Yorker as
A pit eight inches deep and three and
one-half lo four feet wide and of the
proper length is first dug, and boards or
slabs are placed at the Uittom. The
cabbages are cut and well trimmed and
packed in the pit, as shown. Frames of
2x4 inch scantling are made and placed
upright in the pit. For a pit fifteen feet
long three of these are needed. Fence
boards are nailed to these frames, thus
forming a complete crate. This is cov
ered lightly with, straw, and then with
about four inches of dirt. The ends are
slutted with straw, which can be re
moved whenever cabbage heads are de
sired. Things That Are Told.
Professor Maynard, of Massachusetts,
is quoted as expressing himself very fa
vorably in regard to the use of cloth as a
covering for cold frames; he finds less
danger of sunbuming and of too great
an accumulation of heat than with glass.
More protection, however, is needed at
night. Cloth sash lias proven especially
valuable for beds of recently transplant
ed plants, as the intensity of light and
evaporation are less than where glass is
