Married ills Own Sister.
Iears ago a family consisting of father,
dather and two ghildren lived in a small
.,Iwn in Western Olki0., The J1hcad of the
faniily, Mr. Lawton, was a lawyer, and
speculator, and had been a merchant. lie
had grown rich for those days-and was
noted for his keen business sagacity and
his honest and kindly heart. Ills wife
laid been a delicato an(l pretty girl when
no nimarrled her, and after het second
child was born her health broke down and
she became a confirmed invalid. ''lie coi
ple had tvo children, a boy named Michael
who was thet 'baby" and was about flive
years old, and a girl named Mabel. Mabel
was a pretty clAild, and her parents ptt(ed
.ier and dressed her in a style that made her
the envy of all mothers in the neighbor.
One day Mabel went into her mother's
room and told her she wanted to go and
play with some other little girls who lived
on the next street. Mrs. Lawton gave her
consent, but told her to be sure to come
honie to dinner. . Mabel promised, kissed
her mother gayly, and ran out of the room
-out of the world as far as the poor moth
er was concerned, for she never saw her
agaIn. Mabel did not come home to din
ner, and at supper time Michael was sent
after her. le soon returned with a pale,
ft lehtened face, and told lis father that his
sister had started for home at noon, and no
one knew where she was. Search was
madoe for her In every direction, but with
out avail. No trace of the lost one could be
A month afterward the mother (I-,d heart
broken, and the father sold his property
and became a homeless wanderer, with but
one object in life-the finding of his lost
one. Taking his son with him lie traveled
from State to State, visiting public institu
tions where children were cared for, and
going through cities makMg inquiries
which he thought might lead to the desired
result, From the United States the search
was extended to Europe, and, finally, in a
Spanish city, Mr. Lawton caught a local
fever and died in a few days, leaving his
son, then a bc of nineteen, all of his for
tune. Mr. Lawton told his boy that he
had no near relatives except a brother, who
had gone to California in the first finsh of
the gold fever, and had never been heard of
Michael Lawton came back to this coun
try, entered a college in the East, and
graduated with honor. Ile studied law in
the office of a famous New York lawyer,
and, after being admitted to the bar, lie
went West and made his home in a newly
settled State, where he soon built upl) a good
practice. One winter Lawton went to New
York to visit a college chum, Marchmont,
had several young sisters, and one(- afternoon
Lawton was introduced to Miss Mabel Let
cher, a young lady who was their music
teacher. She was exceedingly pretty anl
a lady in manner and mind, and Lawton
fell violently in love with her, and before
lie left the city he asked her to marry him
and she accepted him.
They were married the following spring,
and went to Lawton's Western iihome,
where they uvel happily for six years,dtr
ing which time two children were born to
. MIss Letcher told Lawton after
their engagL-1ent that she was ii, orphan,
that her parents u'hl when she was a child
1and she could .not rensivober them i at all.
She had been named, iy a kitad-hearted lady
in Eastern Ohio. She had taught school and
madesullicient money to enteraschool in the
East, where she studied music, and after
she lad graduated she got a class of girls
for p'pi's, and while thus engaged Iet
Lawt .n was sitting in his oniec onic day,
wheni an odd-looking elderly matn caime in
and asked for "Mr. Lawton." ant initroduic
* tion took place, and, after tihe usual prc0
liminaries, the stranger said lie was a law
Lawton if lhe would tell him his father's
name and where lhe was horn. A litonglh
surprisedl at the question, Law'""a comiplied
andl the stranger then evemmend his errzindl:
"ohaeheardl , our father speak, I sup
pose, of a brother who wvent. to California
ninany years ago, and whio did not write
home of his doing". Well, Ilamt his repre
sentativo, andi I was his friend to the hiour'

and there lie heardi of the manner in which
your little sister dlisappeatredl andi of your
father's dleparture. lIe tried to find hiim
for awhile, but did not succeed, and then
lie went home again.
'"le mnade up his mind1( to 11h1d your sis

eral skillful detectives, and1( spent a great
deal of his money in the search. A year
ago lie died, and ini his will directedi that
you should be his heir unless your sister
was discovered. In that event she was to
have half of his property. I saw your
name in the paper seome weeks ago, and on
makIng inquiries I became conivhicedl that
you were the nepheliw of the man who was
my friend, and who intrusted tie with the
care of lis property. And now"--herc t he

After her discovery she could not reimem

FARM AND GARDEN.
WINTxa WitmAT IN BL xAK PLACu,
.There are many fields of good quality
for winter wheat growing, which,
from their elevated and exposed situa
tion, are very liable to Injitry by frosts,
the winds sweepilg the snow off and
leaving no protection to the plant.
Tie first Important requisite Is to make
the sol rich so as to secure a strong
and vigorous start, and a firm and deep
1o(d ot the ground. This aflords pro
tection against throwing out by ieavii,
effects of frost, and a full growth is a
shield against the beating winds. A
top-dress of barnyard manure is ono, if
not the best, protections, for it furnish
es the best stimulant to growth as4 well
as a mulch to the crop, keeping the
ground loose and dly on tile surface,
and it also prevents tihe severity of
winds and frosts from destroying the
plant. Maintires may be applied before
or after seeding, but the best effects
will be sco byapplying before seeding,
and let the harrow line and mix it with
tile soil. When rotted mannre is not at
hand, a covering of (ry straw, evenly
spread over the surface after seeding,
will be very beneficial, if winds (o not
sweep it oil before rains and the grow..
Ing wheat have tied it to the ground.
Mulching in any way will keep more
snow on the surface, which is always a
protection against winter- killing. In a
mechanical way, much benellt Il found
by drilling In tile seed, going at right
a igle with the prevalling winds. The
seed being in the drill mark, tile ridge
between the rows allords considerable
protection against winds and holds
snow to cover the rows. It is some
times recommenled to sow with the
wheat som other grain, as buckwheat,
oats or barliy, that will kill down by
frosts and nilcll tle wheat but such
will choke the wheat and prevent
growth so as to (o more injury than
good. Somethlig nmay be gained by
sowing the most hardy and strong
growig variety. The Clawson has
prove i to be tile most hardy, as weil as
prolille, variety cultivated li many
years. 3lany varieties of red wheat
are also hardy, usually more so thia the
white and prolific. The uillz is a liar
dy red wheat and proliic. The old
Mediterranean and fte Ritssian blue
stein are also hardy, but not so prolific.
The best variety to cultivate can only
be learned by experience or observa
tion, for no one variety will be best
adapted to different soils and climates.
