How much William IV disliked Buck
ingham palace is shown by a passage
in the diary of Lord Brougton, who was
first commissioner of works in 1834.
when the houses of parliament were
burned down. Two days after the fire
Broughton records: "Went, to St.
James, and saw his majesty. I can
not say he was much affected by the
calamity at having the opportunity of
getting rid of Buckingham palace;
said he meant it as a permanent Rift
for parliament houses, and that It
would be the finest thing In Europe
At three o'clock the kingand queen
came, and went over the ruins of the
two houses. . . . The king looked
gratified as if at a show, and per
haps to the prospect of getting rid of
Buckingham palace. JUst before get

speaker and me to him. and said
Mind! I mean Buckingham nalace as

Arrangement of Flowers.
"Study thearrangement of flowers
and plants in the windows of the floc
lsts," says an observing hostess.. "Un
less a woman is an artist she cannot
hope to qual the skill shown by the
professionals who arrange the display
windows of the modern flower market,
and I find it easier and better to copy
than to experiment. One of the use
ful ideas I gleaned recently from the
study of a beautifully arranged win
dow was the possibility of (test tubes
as flower holders. These were placed
at eachside of the handle of a basket
of flowers, and were tied in place with
many twinings of gauze ribbon and
almost concealed by the many looped
bows. The ribbon was the palest blue.
and in each test tube were a single
full blown pink rose and a few buds."
No wonder the honey bees have been
given the honor of being the busiest
little creatures alive. A scientific ex
periment has shown that a red clover
blossom contains on an average less
than one-eighth of a graiu of sugar.
There being 7,000 grains in a pound,
the bee that makes a pound of honev
must obtain its material from no less
than 56.000 clover heads. But this is
not all. In order to pet the nectar the
bee is compelled to insert its proboscis
into each floret or flower tube com
posing the head of clover, and there
are. it is said, about sixty florets in
every head. The insect must, there
fore, perform this operation CO times
56,000. or 3,360,000 times, in order to
obtain a pound of nectar.
Value of Honey.
Honeyjs as wholesome and nourish
ing as concentrated refined cane sugar
Is unwholesome and lacking in nour
ishment. Honey is a medicine as w ell
as a food. Give it to the children in
place of candy. Be sure, how over, that
you get pure honey. Glucose is more
harmfel than susar. There are impor
tant differences even in pure honey,
.cording to the conditions under which
It Is made. Just as there is a ureat
difference in fruit, according to tho
soil on which it Is itrown. Dark r?d
honey I much the best, although thv
people demand lifchl ellov honey,
just as they insist on light colored
dried fruit, because they cat with
their eye and do net think.
Must Be Protected.

five years for stealing one dollar doubt

Steel hardening by ,i rpray of
compressed air is tho plan adopted for
certain special work in a German e.
tftblishment. Kor baldening only in

Th verv next day Mr. Blunt rap

"Susan!" and in came the young wo
man ho hni mpt the dav before. lie
said he had called to get some infor
tuation as to what wages she would
expect ii ud other items of like nature.
but in realitv he was desirous of form
ins Susan's acquaintance.
There are triUers among the lowly
as well as among the swells, and Mr.
Blunt was beut on an affair with the
nrettv ladv's maid. He called often.
and his attentions appeared to be high
ly appreciated. Susan seemed a bit
fond of finery and jewelry, and Mr.
Blunt considered himself fortunate in
beius able to gratify ber. especially In
th matter of Jewelry. lie made her
presents of a few inexpensive orna
ments. but they did not seem to satisfy
her. John found her very fascinating
and in order to gain ber good will pro
duced articles of greater value. Finally
he found himself so deeply infatuated
that be proposed marriage.
To his surprise Susan refused him
Nevertheless from time to time she
gave him encouragement to hope that
she might reconsider her refusal. She
said that she had expensive tastes and
was afraid that he would not be able
to gratify them. She hinted at a suit
or. a plumber, who had made a great
deal of money, but she did not love
him. Nevertheless she was thinking
of marrying him because he could give
her what she craved jewels.
Upon this John shied off for awhile

In his attentions to her a bit- Indeed,
she scarcely noticed him when they
met. One day she told him that she

containing several large diamonds, tell
ing her that his last master, a stock
broker, had giveu him a tip by which

Susan's eyes sparkled with pleasure
at seeing the ornament. She put it on
and admired it and herself in a mirror.
"ou look fine in it, Susan." said her
lover. "I'm so 'appy at my luck In
making the money to buy it for you
seeing ns ow now you necdu't 'ave to
give yourself to the plumber."
But Susan did not quite accede to
the proposition. John begged her to
end his suspense and agree to marry
him. but she said that the expense of
living was rising every day and she
was afraid that without a permanent
income they would come to grief. She
would rather remain single and be a
lady's maid than be married and in
But John did not despair, for her
love for jewelry seemed to him to have
been born in ber, and his old master,
the stockbroker, gave him another tip
and h made more money. This time
he gave Susan n bracelet, a serpent
with ruby eyes. Again Susan was de
lighted and seemed to warm; but,
though on the verge of consenting, she
did not consent.
One d.iy John called to sh? his love
when she was not at home. Her
mother revolved hliu and said to him:
"I'm doing all I can for you. John,

It's the jewels th:t's doing it."
