At her father's requust who was very t
proud of his daughter's. varied accom- t
p lishments-Mary sang and played for a
er cousin, and his visit ended in sing-. i1
ular contrast to the stormy way it b
commenced. Edward refused the five- v
dollar note tendered him by his uncle s
at-parting for his traveling expenses. 1
The old man smiled as he returned f
the note to his poqketbook. a
"He's a sensible young chap, after a
all," he remarked to his daughter, as t
the door closed after their guest. "It's c

"A good deal for fattier to say," was I
Mary's inward comme}tt, who thought 1
her cousin the most agreeeble young E
man she had ever mob. C
Three years later Mr. Stone and his I
daughter paused in front of a small
but neat and pleasant-looking shop, on
the plate-glass door of which were
these words: "Howard Stone, Sta
tionery and Book Store."
It being too early in the day for cus- I
tomers they found the proprietor alone,
whose face flushed with pride an.i
pleasure as he greeted them.
"I got your card nephew," said the
old man with a cordial grasp of the
hand, "and called round to see how
you were getting on. I thought it was
about time I gave you the little lift you
asked of me three years ago. You
- don't look much as if you needed it,
"ijut at present, thank you, uncle,"
was the- cheerful response. "Curiously
enough, it is the same business that I
wanted to buy then. The man who
took it had to borrow money to pur.
chase it with, getting so much involved
that he had to sell at a sacrifice."
"Just what you wanted tp do."
Edward smiled at the point made by
"It isn't what I've done though.
I've saved $4 a week from my salary for
the last three years, and so was not
only able to pay 'the money down, but
had $50 beside."
"Bravol my boy," cried the delighted
old man, with another grasp of the
hand that made the hero wince. "[.'n

On Jbrlstmas Eve the old man en
tered lhe room where hits daughter and'
Edward were sitting, and said:
"I muen't delay any longer tI-e little

"Buta what lad? Speak out! Would

Ed ward's. fingeors closed tenderly and
strongly over the hand that he had

"Yes, uncle-mi this."
The old man looked keenly from one
to' the other.
"You are asking a good deal, nephew.
Polly, have you been encouraging this
young man in his prdsumption?"
"I'm afraid I have, fathier," was
the smiling response.
T.lhe father's eyes moistened.

Some Enormous Salerles.
Some interesting figures in regard to
Ealaries have been elicited in a suit
in Brooklyn agaInst a baking-powder
company. It was shown that the
- President of the company draws a sal
ary of ?50,000 a year, the Vice P'resl
dent $30,000, and the Treasurer 50000.
The President of a paint and varnish
company, who wvas introduced as an
expert in regard to salerles, stated that
the Superinitendent of his company
receiveol $50,000 a year, while the
yearly business did not exceed $3,000,
t00. Another witness stated that'Iin
companies wIth which lhe was acquain

55000 to $?.0,000 a year, wh)1e a repre

corporation who rec&'ed a salary of
$30,000 a year, and two others who
isceive $20,000 eacoa. Those flgures
are enormous, and were unknown until
the days of trusts and combinations.
The explanation is furnished in the
testimony of one of the witnesses, who
said that the business' of the company

To KEEP A ISOUQUET OF FLOWERS
niEsu.-A queer way to ke^p a
ouquet of flowers fresh, but a very
triking and effective one is thus des
ribed: In a vessel- of water place a
late, and on this stand a bouquet of
lowers, weighted to the bottom so as
o stand upright. This being done, the
)ouquet is covered with a bell glass,the
im of which ought to lit- exactly the
lat part of the plate; the bell glass
hould be entirely filled with water and
+vithout the least air bubble. Then
'also all together, bell glass plate and
)ouquet and place on a table, leaving
mn plate aroucd the base of the bell
glass a little water to keep the air from
mntering. The flowers in thissituation
Aill be preserved in all their freshness
for several weeks, and their beauty is
noreasod by a great number of bubbles
)f gas produced by the respiration ot
the leaves, and which attach themselves
to the leaves, looking like pearls. The
idge of the plate and the water that it
,ontains should be concealed by a light
bed of moss in which are set some
lowers. A bouquet thus arranged
produces a charming effect, especially
n the evening.
ALL hardy, strong-growing grasses,
ike orchard grass and timothy, may be
own in early spring or autumn. It is
important that it be sown on a fine
nellow seed bed, in the fall, and the
seed must be covered with a light
tarrow or pressed into the soil by a
roller. If sown thus in the fall early
here will. be a good crop of hay the
iext year. It is better to sow clover
eed early in the spring, so that the

THE cheapest mode of keeping rats

eet deep in the ground all around the

Don't Kill the Old Hens.
When hens are shedding feathers they of
ten stop laying and grow fat. Most people
consider fat a sign of health. The fatten
ing of moulting hens, 'however, as with
some people, produces debility rather than
health. Many of the worst cases of roup
are. contracted,while the hens are moulting.
The food of moulting hens, if largely
vegetable is fat-forming and not required
for growing feathers. TFhereforo corn-fed
hens get very fat. They need more nitro
gen and phosphate elements in their 'food
when moulting, which if not supplied they
stop laying, because the growing feathers
have used all, and left no nitrogenous mat
ter to form eggs. At this season, killing
'old hens and relying on young pullets is a
great mistake, where people have a few
hens and late pullets. Because, if properly
fed, the hens will have their new plumage
and lay well all winter; while the pullets
unless specially treated may not commence
laying until spring, when high prices for
eggs have fallen one-half. Again an old
hen's egg will hatch a more vigorous ohick
en than a pullet's egg.
John R. Jones, Suuloid', Coun., a breeder
of prize winning mottled Javas, says:
"I find Sheridan's Condition Powder, fed once
daily In the food, very valuable for moulting hens.
I have used it two years for exh,ibition-birds. It
assists In growing new fe ithere,makea the ombs
a bright red anu give., a rich gloss to the plum.-,
age. It wil also make hens ay and the eggs
