When the shepherd had wiped the
spray from his eyes he saw that he
was alone. The force of the sho:-k
had thrown his companion into the
water. He had landed, and now came
limping along the bank of the river.
The desperado smiled out over the
foam at the helpless shepherd, who be
gan to hope that the fellow would
shoot him and end the awfal-suspense,
but the fearless outlaw did nothing of
the sort. To the shepherd's amaze
ment, the man on shore-safe and free
from the mad river-began to undress.
When he had stacked his wet garments
on a rock he walked a few rods along
the bank and plunged in. Midway
between the rock and the shore there
was a whirlpool-a suck-hole, as the
shepherd said-aud it was to avoid
this that the man had gone so far up
stream. He was an expert swimmer,
but he was weakened from-nve-work
and the long fast, and so the current
proved too strong for him. It carried
him past the shepherd, and suddenly
his feet pointed to the suck. Round

came at each turn nearer the neck of

while the shepherd looked on, power

As lie drew near the fatal centre the
force of the water stood him up; he
waved his hand, smiledl at the shep
herd, and shot down to the botto'm of
the foaming river.

to perish, the shepherd suc-eeded in

you have a chance and you'll find they
are busy every minute.
During the summer thrushes get

Blackbirds are'nos so~ industrious.
They only work 17 hours, but during
that'time they. feed their little ones
between 40 and 50:times. Have you
ever seen a nest o'f young birds? If
you have, I dare say that you have
noticed that tlieir mouth is always

Doll Kindergairten.
Over in Germany there are 5000
~bildren in one district alone who are
~mployed to 'dress dolls and help in]
he manufacture of various kinds o'fi
uvs. All the children who do this
vork are under 12 years of age. They

ae time, according to the compul1- -
mory education law, they are obliged
a go to kindergarten for at least one

biggs as the making of dolls and
Iressing. them, .doing ever-ything, ini

whichb is done by men expert at it.

Dogs and Monkeys in the Mirror.
I saw a performing monkey the
ther day. He went through many
ricks very successfully. Toward the
nd of the performance he was ordered
o put on his cocked hat before a-hand
nirror which he did. He was next
old to set it straight, and he tried on
iis general's headgear repeatedly at
lifferent angles, causing much laugh
;er. When all was over, and the
>rgan man, his helpers and the two
nonkeys were preparing to depart, I
saw that "tbe general" had possessed
:imself of the little mirror and was
studying his own countenance witl
reat delight. He had placed th<
glass on top of the barrel organ, aut
be bent over it again and again,
grimacing energetically. He after
ward pickerl up his mirror and con
templated himself earnestly and cou
tentedly at different angles. His fact
had been profoundly sad; like the
faces f most monkeys I have seen
but now the wrinkles smoothed them
selves out and he nearly smiled!
Why is it that dogs hardly ever re

a glassa dog generally mistakes it fo

Raising Turkeys. . i
Miss Anita Martin is known all m
through Texas as the"Turkey Queefi," p]
on aecount of the many turkeys which te
she has raised on her ranch in that gi
I state. So great has been the increase n
in Miss Martin's business since s &
started w itffour turkeys five years si
ago that she now employs two women w
to help take care of her 100 stbck n,
birds. Miss Martin sells the turkeysj fc
r to regulai enstomers, and claims to t(
haI e cleared $25 -0 this year. The i
most expensive birds are those which U
feed on nuts and other fancy foods; T
which render their flesh sweeter and-1o
more palatable. All the eggs are- :v
hatched by incubators and the- food t
which the turkeys eat is grown on the i
ranch, thus saving much expeuse. a!
Miss Martin heartily recommends all Iw
women to enter the turkey 'raising a

i She Is Prison Cbaplain.
For several years Mrs. May Preston 1
" losson has been an interested and 0
r unselfish worker among the prisoners c
I of the state penitentiary at. Laramie, r,
s Wyo., and when the chaplain left the a
city his place was offered Mrs. Slos- t)
a son.- Ste. an ordained minister

dwr an I can preach an excellent
serion.- Her influence with the pris
ouers is great, and she makes- her,
chapel services so attractive that pris
oners are anxions to attend instead of
viewing them as part of prison disci
pliue. Music, vo: al and instrumental;
readings and -short talks on various
appropriate topics intersperse the
regalar religious exercises. Mrs. Slos
son gives her services without any
salary, from pure devotion to the
work, and it is sail of her by the
warden and other officers that her
bright and cheerful influence ia creat
ing a-i atmosphere of hopefulness
throghout the institution.
The Woman Chemist.
The woman chemist who has -been
the most signal influence for artistic
effort in this country and, has given
work to many younger experimenters
is the founder and originator of the
Rockwood pottery in Cincinnati. It
was her rersonal knowledge of the
native clays and their possibilities
that gave stimulus to the project. Nol
Iother city has as many working women
chemists as Cincinnati,although there
are some in Pittsburg and other
manufacturing centres. A chemist
who travels all over the Union in -the
brewer's interests tells'of women who.
are working in that branch of chem-~
ists' processes. There is a New Jersey
woman who has made a special study
of poisons. Wheni anti-toxin was first
being experimented with as a pre
ventive foi diphtheria this young
woman,.-then newly graduated from a
Berlin institute, was the chief assist-'
auf of the professor . conducting the'
work. She helped- make the cultures
ad persontilly administered the Gial
doses to the guinea pigs for prelimin-i
ary experiment.
WmnMine Owners.
Practical mining does not seem to
suggest itself. as a feld in which
'.women can achieve dist'ntian, but
the constantly interiu'inber of
womei mine owners in Colorado and o
other mining states yroves that 'there
is no reason why the women of the iqu
future wili not compete with men on
equal ground in this important de- fu
partent of industry. Many mines in
Colorado are owned by women, and wi
some are even directed by their femi
ine . owners, who have quickly|
adapted themselves to the work. Two|
or three ypars ago a school teacherI
while spending her vacation in Ari-b
zona, located some promising claims hr
through her knowledge of geology..
She secnred some good specimens; hr
sold her locations in p nver and then ed
turned professional ~pector. She
has followed the business with per- en
sistence and intelligence, and is now on
making a most excellent livelihood,1i.
with good prospects of securing~a for- Ia
tune. A Seattle e~xchange recently Ibl
recorded the sales of two groups of.
mines located in the Kalso, B. .
district. The locations had been made 5
by the woman and she stood by thea.g
for seven'years until she finally ne-i
gotited a sale. She secured $125, 000 to
s her share, the buyers being Eng- di
ish and French capitalists..-Denver
