The home town knockers are not often seen fixing up their own places and making them look just as at tractive as possible. The country boy does not always talk as fast as his city cousins, but he can tell things that he has (lone rather than what he is going to do. There aren't any more laborers on construction jobs, as they are all taking courses teaching them to be bosses. Although e-:eryone is suspicious of e. rnoration men, it is not wise to insist that everyone who runs for office shall have failed in business. Equal pay is demanded for women teachers in spite of the fact that they can't coach the ball team. Contrary to grand-mother's ideas a boy can't learn to swim merely by taking a course in a corresp)ondenlce :school.

Summer is the time for family re unions, and, many people get along very nicely with their relatives if they meet them only once a year. The popular idea of getting back to natuire, entertained by some of our 'women friends, is having a pink tea in 'ttiff -city clothes on the sum mer cottage porch. This is the period when people will pay $30 a week and up for the privi lege of being about half as comfort able in a summer hotel as they would be at home. Mother usually spends the summer vacation at some poorly equipped cottage, working harder than she dioes at home, It is wonderful how the peopleC ral ly to meetings held to promote some good cause when you anniounce that ;,-e ,.ream and cake will be ser-ed. Tinel-eces of Long A.qo Were Mastc7pieces of Art. Mary Queen of Scots Had a Cclection of Watches of Peculiar and Grewsome Shape. The fra;:ie watch of dainty pattern and design which toiay is a favorite aiIILZI WOinell is M striking colntra-t to soii! of the wat hes w\hii were fa mius centilries ago. Many of these were of enormous size and of the mio st ornate design, re marks a writer inl the Dearborn In dependent. Mary Queen of Scots was the pos sessor of a death's iead! watch which was of silver gilt and most elaborate ly ornamented. The forehead of tle skull bore the sytibols of death. tile scythe and hiurghiss placed beti weeni a palace anid a cit ige to show the im partiality of the .trim destroyer. At the bark of the skull was Time. de stroyim;" all thin-.s, '1nd ait thet top of the head, scenes of the Grden of Edlen and the crucifixion. The wa:itcl was opened by reversing the, skul. llac ing the upper part of it inl tle hioillow of the hainl and liftintig the jaw by the hinge, this hart ieing enricbed buv engraved representations of the holy trinity. angels amd shehilierds with their flocks. The works of the watch forimed the brains of the skull and were within a silver envelope which acted as a musically-toned hell. while the dial plate was in the place of the palate. The curious work of art was made at Blois and, at her death, was bequeathed by Mary Queen of Scots to her maid of honor Mary Seton, in 1587. It afterward came into the possession of Sir John Dick Lander. Another skull watch which once be lon::ed to Mary Queen of Scots by its inscription and date. 1500, shows that Francis II of Franie presented it to his young wife nany years he fore watches were suppoe-d to have been brought t-. England froim Ger many. Queen Mary was evidently a collect or (if watches of unique desi-:n. She is said to have possessed one ini a case of crystal, shaped like a coffin. and another tmade at tiueii. in which a thread of catgut supplied the place of a chain. Some of the early watches were so small as to be set in the head of walking sticks, the clasp of bracelets, or in pendants, and there is a record of a striking watch which was mounted In a ring, in the year 1542. At the Strawberry Hill sale Queen Victoria purchased a little cloek of brass-gilt, which had been presented to Anne Boleyn by leinry VIII, upon their marriaze in 1.32.
