O I I o passing the whisk which
31 she had Just pulled out of
thumb nnd linger to see if
the loaf was thoroughly done.
. "Amf I can go to Jessie Wells' this
tofternoon, can't I? You promised."
"No, Martha, 1 didn't quite promise."
"But I ran every step of the way,
indeed I did, auntie: and I made all
the biuls and dusted."
There was a tremor in Martha Parker's
voice, and the tears came almost
5nto her eyes.
"I'll tell you at noon. There, it is
leu minutes (o nine, and you will be
late to school if you ilo not start this
Instant."
"Hut. Aunt ratty "
"If you stop for another word, you
icannot go at all. How ofton have I
told you about answering back?"
Martha picked up her two hooks
auul whirled herself out of the door
like a tornado, without a word of
good corning.
"The cross old thing!" she half
sobbed, as she went cut of hearing.
"She never does let me do anything! I
may try and try, and it doesn't amount
io?a row ol pins. And it i can't go
4o that croquet party I'll bo just as
bad as e\er I can be."
I think Martha commenced light
away. She climbed over the fence
and ran down into tiie lot for an apple,
and what with that and the eating of
it she was late for school.
"My aunt sent me to do an errand,"
she said to Mtss Lewis.
"Well, you must bring a note, then,
or lose a mark. I want you to understand
that school begins promptly at
'jilnc."
That made Martha still more cross.
She slammed the lid of her desk and

to go down one. And then she "didn't
care" in real good earnest, and she
v as u very troublesome child until
twelve o'clock.
When she went home to dinner she
found (iraiulma Fields sitting by the
open window in Aunt Patty's tidy
kitchen. Now Grandma Fields really
"was not grandmother to anybody, but
she was old find sweet and pretty,
with a wrinkled face and snow-white
liair; a gown of .soft drab, that, though
it was made in ihe fashion of her j
. young days, had almost come round
k .again. Ii was gored, plain waisted,
And with coat sleeves: but it had no
rumL'? nor ungies. j 11011 sue Had a
uilvery-eolored kerchief crossed over
her bosom, and a white lawn enp, and
altogether sho was as attractive- lookins
as any grandmother you would
wish to see. .Sin' had not a relation
in the world, and yet everybody's
tiouse was open to her, and she visited
about, sewing and knitting and darning,
and sometimes taking rare of sick
people. She was seventy, but sho did
not seem old. There was always a
great stack of invitations ahead of
her, and two mouths ago Miss Patty
Parker had sent for her.
y 4,She does so enjoy harvest apples,"
said Miss ratty, "so let us have her
here right in the first of them. And it
will give me a good start with all the
clothes and bedding and stockings."
K Aunt Patty kept house for her
broth r, Mr. Nathan Parker. He wan
a very comfortable farmer, a widower
with three hoys and one girl. A very
<-lean, orderly, upright woman was

Nathan was so careless, so dilatory,

very hard, and she used to get very
much discouraged. This was her side
of the story.

going that kept her in such a tranquil
?tnte.
Behind the farmer came his oldest
Hon, George, about seventeen. Flo had
been to the mill and the store that
morning, and put down the basket.
'Aunt Patty began to unpack at once.
"Will that calico do? The other was
ji 11 sold. This is the same pattern,
but it has a pink flower instead of a
lilac. I like it better."
"It doesn't look like a good wash
pink," and Aunt I'atty viewed it critically.
I "Hut it was for my bed, and I liked
it," said George, with a deprecating
effort to smooth matters over.
"And it is not as ?ood quality. If
you can't do Just what you are told,
you had better do nothing. And you
didn't get lemon extract!" taking up a
bottle.

Meanwhile Davie aiul Martha came
home from school. Tom was working
for a neighboring farmer. The family
sat down to their meal, and (Jramlma
Fields said her brief Quaker grace.
"Did you know all youi lessons?"
asked Aunt Patty. Martha hung her
head. "I did hope you would have one
good week, Martha; you never seem
to get full marks."
"And she was late," said Davie.
Martha swallowed over a great sigh.
"There was no need of your being
late, Martha. Next time don't stop and
I argue."
"Of course 1 can't go now, anyhow,"
thought Martha; but she arose and began
to help clear the table.
"Maybe tliee would like to look over
thy lesson?" sahl grandma, in lier soft
tone.
"There is only arithmetic this afternoon,
and geography in the big map.''
"Ami the more time children have to
play the more they want to play," was
the sharp comment.
"They are a good deal like kittens?
plfty comes natural," was the soft rejoinder.
"You cannot go, if that is what you
are hanging around for," said Aunt
Patty, presently; "and come straight
home from school, too, or you'll be
sorry for it." .
Martha went off sullenly, and after
making a good deal of trouble in
| school, came home in the same mood.
She wondered if she couldn't run away,
or if some one would not take her to
tend a baby, or do chores; anything
would be better than Aunt Tatty's
sharpness. But instead she hung up
her sun hat and sat down to sew an
over seam in a hateful sheet. And
half a dozen girls were having a good
time at Jessy Wells*.
i iml is seweii very neatly," said
grand ma.
Aunt Tally looked at it.
"Well, it's middling. You have
soiled it p. good deal; liow often have 1
told you to wash your hands before
you commence sewing? Now you eae
put on that old skirt and go out anu
weed that row of strawberries."
Weeding was not a favorite employment.
Davie came presently and they
began to play "tag" around the; beds
until Aunt Patty spied it out, and sent
Davie to look for <'g>is.
j "I don't believe you have found half
of them," she said, when he canio in.
"Come in and set tin- table, Martha,"
she called, presently. "Now, t<> morrow
afternoon you will have to finish that
row. You have been a bad, judolrnt
girl to-day."
It was so with most of .Martha Parker's
(lays. And yet the neighbors. jiihI
generally Miss Ivcwis, thought her a
pretty good little girl.
"But no one can ever suit Aunt
Patty," the child said to Cramlma
Fields; "it's always .something, oh, 1
wish you lived here and kept house,"
and Martha kissed the wrinkled hand.
"I'm sure I don't know what to <!<?
Willi those children!" Aunt Patty said
as she sat sewing with grandma.
"They do not improve one hit. I think
they grow worse."
The sweet eyes rested on the fretted
face. Now Miss Patty Parker was
not an unhandsome woman; indeed, in'
girlhood she had been very pretty.
"Isn't thy balance a little out of
gear, Patty?"
"My balance?" ejaculated the astonished
lady.
"Yes. Is thee careful to give good
weight? Like begets like, you know."
"I can't imagine what you mean."
"Well, thee mustn't be offended, but
I am afraid thee weighs a little too
oioso. i nop seldom gives the children
any credit for good measure, and tlio
little over makes a good difference in
the feelings of others."
. "Hut you don't mean and it does in
jnro children to l?o praising them < >n
tinunliy," was the rather jerky n
Joinder.
"Has thoo tried it'.'' diss Parker
sat silent. "Thoo i ?t fool hurt.
Patty, hut I think th?iiu' i t<> in- a
Just . man, and an ouin fooling,
or i> lly regard, or npprer i i <<n, just
as much belongs to its rightful owner
as a pound of butter. Thoo sets a
had example in giving tho ohildron
short weight, for they pay hack in
kind."
Miss Patty considered grimly.
Wasn't grandma right? She never
(11(1 let the customer scale go (|uite
down in these daily household matters.
"I suppose my temper is a little
spoiled. Nathan and the hoys are
very trying. Hut I >vant to do right,
and if you think "
"A Just balance," said the sweet old
voice. "(Jive what thee would like to
get."
"Oh, Aunt Patty," cried her niece,
flying in from school breathless and ex- !
cited, "the whole menagerie is going
to pass at the crossroads just at four.
< nn r unvio aihi i go, just for this
once? There's the most splendid
chariots, and a great elephant, and "
. Davie brought up the chorus and
promised to be such a good boy all day
to-morrow. And Martha would sew a
few blocks of patchwork the next day.
"There, children, don't be so noisy.
Davie, will you promise to mind sister?
And Martha, will you keep hold of,-his
hand, and not lei him go Intol any
danger?" It was wonderful that,she
did not say, "I know I cannot .trust
jrou." (
The children promised and rq/u off
.. i i
... ^ 'v
delighted, and it \fcos iull supper ume
when tliey reached home again, their
faces attesting their enjoyment.
"Now, I'll run and hunt up the eggs,"
raid Davie, as soon as he had finished
his meal.
"I had to go out to ihe barn, and I
did it," said his aunt.
"Oh, Aunt l'atty, how good you
were! We'll, I'll bring tlie chips and
kindlings," and he came tugging a
great basketful, though generally this [
was one of the boy's hardships. i
"What a nice lot," said Aunt Patty. <
Davie stared. t
"Isn't there something else? Don't (
you want a pitcher of water?" c
"George brought one." i
So Davie sat on the doorstep with ^
his father and told him ail about the
'nagerie, and it was quite dark when
Aunt I'att.v called him to go to bed.
Martha hurried round the next morning,
and found time to sew one block
of patchwork. And she was In such c
a gay good hi'.mor all day that Miss t
Lewis asked her if she was bewitched, v
"I think I must be, for Aunt Patty 1
praised me this morning," was her r
reply. t
It really was <i\iito wonderful what t
a change came over the Parker house- v
hold. The children wefe not angels, i
mill tliey often forgot in the mi<lst
of their lioKt intentions; but there was
a more generous allowance made for
them, a good weight thrown into the
balance. For sometimes the kindly I c
impulse, the ready will, is as much | .
us the deed itself. And she found that Ij
the generous measure reacted upon |
herself. The pleasant temper of her I
earlier years came back. r
One morning Aunt Patty found a f<
beautiful handkerchief case lying over j
her plate at the breakfast table. The '
sides were gilt brlstol board, with her !
initials handsomely worked in green, s
and around the edge a puff of green
ribbon. And inside were two pretty '
handkerchiefs, and some neatly (
hemmed milling for neck and wrists.

Augustans arc Interested.
A dispatch from Augusta, Or., sayft:
A recent decision in a Carolina liquor
case is of considerable interest to the
liquor dealers of this city, who have
had considerable trouble, owing to the
seizure of shipments into the state by
dispensary constables. The decision
is of interest because it defines the
rights of a non resident shipper of
whiskies and ninits the power <?t" the
constable to seize and liolfl shipments.
The decision is to the effect that
no shipment of whiskies can be seized
while in the hands of a common
carrier, not even if the currier is a
drayman, delivering the goods to the
rightful owner. The goods must iirst
pass into the hands of the owner and
he released legally to him. This
means that shipments of liquor cannot
be seized while In the hands of
railroads, steamship companies, or
while being delivered to the owners
by a transfer company or common
drayman.

Vindictive Politics.
(Krom The Atlanta Journal.)
The postofllce department has made
public the appointment of George
Washington Murray, a negro and an
ex-congressman, as postmaster at tlio
fourth-class office of lluger, S. C. This
is President Roosevelt's reply, wo
\r.iun nin f A f li it /Innw^nro ( i ^ nnntnil.
Hon that he is a menace to the peaco
and prosperity of tlie white and colored
races of the south?a defiant answer
if one of that character was
hurled out of the white house.
In addition to the objection raised
by tho community against the appointee?an
objection which in itself
should have sufficient weight with
the president to cause ilie appointment
to be annulled?there is another
and more serious consideration
to be weighed. It is stated in reports
from tho state capital of South Carolina
that Murray has been convicted
of forgery.
This report has boon published in
the newspapers broadcast, and as yet
we have heard of no action that has
been taken by the administration towards
removing the negro from office.
It seems to be a case of vindictive
reprisal on the part of the president.
For our part we are not in the least
surprised since it is on a level with
the other administrative acts towards
the white people of the south to whom
Roosevelt's candidacy does not appeal
and from whom lie cannot hope to
draw political strength. He had never
allowed the appointment of a negro
postmaster, we feel confident,
over a community of white peoplo
whom he had reason to expcct assistance
in his race for the presidency.

Boy of Two Years Cruches Skull cf
Baby Sister, One Month Old.
Jealousy on the part of a boy, two
and a half years old against his baby
sister, one month old, has led to the
death of the latter at the hands of
the boy. The tragedy occurred in the
family of Nicholas ltobinson, at Nyack,
N. Y.
Since the little girl came, a month
ago, the boy exhibited many times evidences
of jealous rage. Finally he
was left alone for a few minutes in
the room, where the baby lay asleep.
The boy was playing with a small
bronze statuette. Without warning the
tot, by repeated blows, crushed the
baby's skull and the little one wa ?
dead when the mother returned to the
room.

leading citizen of Patton, Ala. "A
friend recommended Chamberlain's

I bought a twenty-five cent bottle and
after taking three doses of it was entirely
cured. I consider it the best
remedy in the world for bowel complaints.

"For several years my wife was
troubled with what physicians called
sick headache of a very severe character.
She doctored with several eminent
physicians and at a great expense,
only to grow worse until she
was unable to do any kind of work.
About a year ago she began taking
Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver

she ever did before and is real well,"
