"She is fond of taking her own head

"Ah, I'm sorry for that, Miss Susy,"
said the storekeeper. " But I known
a man who wants a spirited horse.
What would you sell her for ?"
"I leave that to the purchaser,"
Susy made answer. " Papa paid $75
for her more than a year ago, and I
wouldn't want to take less than that,
for I need the money very much," she
went on, "and If you will be so kind
as to take an interest in the matter-"
She stopped, her eyes wistful.
" Why, of course I will," the grocer
responded. "I'll send my boy to your
house with the groceries, and he can
bring the horse back with him. If
anything is done in the way of a sale
I'll let you know at once."
Susy thanked him and went on her
way home. As she came in sight of
the house, an old-fashioned, two-story
butiding, where dilapidation was ren
dered picturesque by a profuse growth
of Ivy that covered the front porch and
much of the exterior wails, she felt
more comfortable as she thought over
her prospects. In imagination she
had her mother quite reconclied to all
her plans, her school life assured and
all things going on swimmingly. For
who knew but that Brown Bess might
bring her $100, she was so spirited and
Work and home seemed brighter.
The grocer's boy came for the horse,
and though it was hard parting with
the pretty creature, Susy, in expecta
tion of results, bore the separation
" Can't we take a little of the money

mother asked as the horse was led

"Many girls go to school tili they are
" And there's clothes, to think of,

" Oh, they'll be provided," Susy said,

" An' winter's comin'-an' it's two

mother went on, each time throwing a
e more plaintive cadence into her voice.
" %Tom's clothes are terribly patched,
. an' mother needs flannels. I ain't so
young as I was once, but I ain't sayin'
anything about myself, on'y it's kind

her mother s weak face deepened.
" Mother, I wish you could see it as
e 1 do. I must go to the academy," Susy
t made reply. " It's the opportunity of

If I get $100 for Brown Bess I'll divide

" Well, yes, $50 would get every

MRS. ARP TAKUS A VACATION
BILL TECLLS ABOUT HER THIP.
His Wife Had a Pleasant Time Until
the News Came that lie Was Sick
-11cr Visit Was Shortened Thereby.
My wife, Mrs. Arp,hadent been away
from home for two years. It is said
that a sotting hen never gets fat, but
those human hens do, and so '1h girls
thought their mother ought to rouse
up and go somewhere and take a rest.
It was a great undertaking to got her
otf. It took a whole week to got her
apparel In tirst-class condition for she
wasont raised on common clothes and
won't.woar them now, ospeoially when
she goes abroad or to church. Wo
flnally got her off, though the train
liked to have left her while she was
saying goodby and kissing all the little
grandchildren. One of the girls went
with hor, but I was to scatter around
at home. Two weeks was the time she
gave herself, for she says that is as
long as anybody ought to stay any
where on a visit, for some times folks
wear out their welcome and don't know
it. In fact one week is the safest. She
went to Home, where our oldest boy
and his family live and where she lived
for twenty-seven years. Some of her
early friends are still thore and they
came to see her, of course, and talked
about the dear old times until their
eyes got teary and they drew their
chairs a little closer and were merry
and sad by turns as they talked of the
living and the dead. On Sunday she
went to the same old church and eat
in the same old pew and drank in
music from the same old organ, but
the preacher and the choir were
changed. After sorvce she was forced
to hold a reception in the vestibule
where old friends and their children
and grandchildren gathered around
her, the friends to greet and their
children to look upon theis matron of
the olden time of whom they had
heard. Yes, this wonderful woman
who so gently dominated her lord and
aaster and kopt him so sweetly sub
dued that he liked the subjugation.
She spent. a delightful week and the
programme for another was already
arranged when on Saturday some bird
of the air told her that I was sick and
she could hardly wait for the evening
train. I had been sick, very sick, but
the crisis had passed and for fear she
might hear it and cut short her stay
I wrote her that I was getting well and
to finish her rest. She Is not that kind
of a woman or wife, and sure enougi
about 6 p. m., I happened to look out
of the window and saw her coming ui
the lawn like she feared I would die

YORIK'S CHIAMION WHEAT FARM
(no Thonsanal Bushels Raised on
Ninety Acres--Dry Weather Cut
Down the Yield.
The Yorkville correspondent of the
News and Courier says:
Probably the largest quantity of
wheat ever raised on one farm in York
County was threshed last week, on the
farm of Mr. b". 13. McClain ; and, while
the average yield per acre has often
been exceeded in this section, still the
result Ia very encouraging when ail
the circumstances in councution with
the preparation of the land, the
weather, etc., are taken Into considora
Last year almost the entire farm
was planted in cotton and corn, and an
extra large crop was made, but owing
to the low price of cotton the profits
of the year's work were not satisfac
tory to Mr. McClain, and lie concluded
that he would try wheat. The stalk
crops were not finally gathered until
about the 1st of December which is con
sidered full late for wheat sowing, but
nevertheless the land was prepared
and the seed wheat put in the ground,
the work not having been completed
until about the middle of January,
owing to continued wet weather, which
rendered it impossible to prosecute
the work of seeding without interrup
Ninety acres in all were sown, and
the yield, measured, was 913 1 2 bush
els. The standard weight of a bushel
of wheat is 60 pounds. A number of
measured bushels were weighed and
oach one tipped the beam at 66 pounds.
On this basis, and it is the commercial
one, there were 60,181 pounds of
wheat, or 1,000 bushels, which makes
th3 average yield per acre 11 1-9 bush
The varieties sown were " Virginia
red chaff" and ' purple straw. A
number of experts have pronounced
the quality as being as Il no, if net the
finest, they have ever examined. One
speccial patch yielded at the rate of 40
bushels to the acre. The ground was
carefully measured with a tape line,
and the wheat with a standard half
bushel measure. There was a small
fraction over three-fourths acre of the
ground and 31 1-2 bushels of wheat.
.The fraction over three-fourths of an
acre was not suflicient to have pro
duced mere 1 1-2 bushels.
Part of the 90 acres was good land,
part average, and ten to fi fteen acres
poor. On the latter Mr. Mc~lain did
not expect to raise over seven or eight
bushels to the acre under favorable
conditions, and did not realize over
- yie, his object in sowing it being to
place himself in position to sow peas
on it after the wheat was harvested,
and thus improve and build it up. Hie
said to your correspondent, in discus
sing the matter, that, he reasoned this
way : " That land will not pay much
f sow in wheat, but if I do not sow it
the chances are that I will put it in
cotton, therefore, I will sow it in wheat,
-and follow with peas. In the end the
land will be better and, while the
wheat may not pay, the improvement
of the land will."
In regard to the net profits on this
crop your correspondent is net pre
pared to make an accurate, detailed
statement, but will give an approxi
mate estimate which will not mies the
exact cost materially one way or the
other. The total cost was not far freom
$425, which amount includes expense
of preparing the land, fertilizer used,
seed, sowing the same, harvesting,
twine, hauling, fuel used by engine in
threshing, etc. On this basis the net
prodlt is at least $4'T5, as the wheat
will readily bring $1 per bushel.
Three-fourths of the straw was acci
dentally burned by sparks from the
engine used in threshing. Its com
mercial value was in the neighborhood
There was no rain of suflciout
volume to wet the gr-ound on which
the wheat grew thoroughly after April
10, and it Is generally estimated that
this cause alone decreased the yild
not only of Mr. McClain's wheat, but
of all in this section, not less than 25
TuE TEXAS l"LOO).-The weather
bureau has issued a special bulletin on
the recent flood in the Brazes River
dlistrict, Texas. The bulletin is accom
panied by a map and tables showing
phenomenal rain falls.
Prof. H-. A. Hazon, in an introduct
ory article, says : "It must be said th at
after allowing for all the conditions we
still have a most serious difliculty in
accounting for tuch rains, which are
analogous to so-called cloudbursts,
about which almost nothing is known."
I. M. Cline, the Texas forecast
oflicial, says ia his report that in places
the river was more than twelve miles
wide. The damage to crops has been
very great. There was a large acreage
in cotton, corn, sugar cane and other
crops. Cotton pilantors have suffered
most. Sugar cane plantatonsd in the
Braszos bottoms have sutfered much.
in some places half the crop has been
destroyed. LFarming implements, stock
and many of the small tenant houses
in the bottoms have been washed away.
Total loseo, judging from reports and
other available information, will ag
gregate nearly $10,000,000.
