Most danta do not grow very rapidly, if at 11, duringwlnter, and as a consequence da set -want a high temperature nor much moisture. All that will be neces fcaryis to keep them from freezing. This may be done in" the following manner: tXg a trencp. in a well-drained spot on" the 40Utb. side qf any 'building', about wo feet d'eep, sii feet wide and as long M necessary to contain the plants. If A SIMPLE HOTBED. . fho trench, is to be permanent, wall up With, brick to the top or board tightly.' JThe south side should extend eight to tn inches above the ground and the porta, aide about six inches higher, to , catch the rays of the sun and shed wa- ; ter. The sash for the top, consisting of one or more pieoes aceording to the - length, is fastened with hinges on the north side. Ail sides should be well bfcnked up with, earth to help keep out the cold. Fill to the depth of 20 inches ' with sawdust or leaves well tramped in, and; the bed-is ready for the plants. f. ' Place the potted plants in the saw dust or leaves np to tne nm oi tne pot and cover, during cold nights. The frame is left open all day unless the weather is too severe; but during the cold days and nights it should have some extra, covering and during the se vere weather may remain covered a week at a time. The greatest care is then needed, for, if the sua is very worm, they need constant ventilation during the day to prevent them from burning.- Thus arranged, they should thrive with an outside climate of from 10 to 15 degrees below zero. A hotbed Is made with the same frame, but with .. different filling. If used for spring piants, vegetables, the very best of fine mold should be secured this fall and in lal'February operations begun. Fill O ft' depth of two feet with fine loose manure well tramped in, starring it occasionally and adding a little water, Jf itdoes not heat. In about a week,' ' when the temperature begins to go Aovra below 100 degrees, put in about tx inch.9 of light soil and if necessary: mix 'a a little sand. Then plant the; seed and kep the temperature as near to 75 or 80 degrees as possible.

It's funny how a woman's smile can sort o' brijrhten up a place. A man fergits the shadders while he sees the sunshine in 'er race. The poets call 'em clingin' vines and say we men are mlgnty oeks, But somehow I believe the strength o' earth is in the wimmen folks.

Then.when a feller sees the bills come tum- blin' in they sort o' vex His Christian bouI and make him wish he'd never seen the falrer'Sex.

I've seen a right smart heap a 'life, of sunny- days and dark ones, too; I've tried to think out lots o' things, and failed, but lest 'twixt me and you, I've got a lot o' sympathy for any man who goes a mile Along life's weary road without Us bright ened by a woman s smile. And Heaven's merciful, I know, fer right through every cloud o doubt It reaches down its gracious hand and hangs Hope's lovin' lantern out.

By (Jofan Tfregantri. ' Characters: Erie Gordon, the vicar's son; Edith Oakley, the squire's daughter. . Scene: The hall garden, a seat on the terrace in the shade of an acacia. ERIC I'm. glad to find you outside. It's much pleasanter. Edith Beoause you want to smoke, I suppose? ,Erdc No. But, now you mention it, thatwould assist me. . Eddth To spend a tedious half hour? If it is so trying I will excuse you. . Eric Thanks, no. (Lighting a ci gar.) But I came to speak to you. Edith (intent on her work) About ? Eric--About a- curious matter, out side my experience rill now; and you can help me a good deal. Edith I can't guess, and I don't sup pose it is worth it if I could. Erie -1 am in lovel Edith (bending lower over her work) Reallyi howvery interesting for you. Eric Of -course, I can't expect it to interest you very much, but we're fairly old friends, and I thought you might help me. I know nothing about girls; fve got no sisters Edith And you want me to be one to you? I'm 6ure I feel very much obliged. I'm afraid the responsibility is a little too heavy. ', Eric Nol That's not quite what 1 want.. But, really, you might help me. YOU MUST-HELP ME. ; Edith, (irritably; xi your mind Is made up, I don't see what good my ad vice Eric Youdon't understand rae. You se, it's this I want to make her like me. Edith (spitefully) That's rather an undertaking, is it not? i; Eric I know I'm not good enough for. hen but I might improve if only I knew what she would like me to do. Edith How far are you prepared to go in the way of reform? Eric; I'll do anything to pleaseier. Edith I had no idea you were so obliging. Do you want me to get from her a list of desirable improvements? Eric No. I want you to tell me what Vou personally objectto in me. Edith But I've only a quarter of an hour at my disposal justnowl Besides, what good would Eric It would be some guide. lean trust your taste. Edith Really? Before you know what it is? Eric Yes. Tell me frankly what you yourself would like different, and I'll try to change. ' Edith And be mortally offended at my candor? Eric I should not be offended, in the ... . Edith I don't suppose it would sig nify much if you were now. Eric I could stand anything from from the crirl in Question, and I want outo'tak'e her place for the time being, i Edith (shiverin.g) How good of youl jl'm afraid you'll And me a poor substi tute. She must &e quite an excepuon- Wl younlady to' produce such a otart- ding elletft upon you. Eric Sheis. Mow, please, Degin your criticism. Edith (somewhat pale, owing to the theat, perhaps) Then I expect she would like you to be more ambitious, to get on and make a position for your self. Eric I simply hate push and that 3clnd of thing. I like to be quiet. Still if it would please her ' Edith I expect it would. And don't you smoke, too much? Erio It never occurred to me. I shouldn't like to give up tobacco. Edith She won't wjsh that, if she lenows much about men. When they are smoking they are contented and comparatively good tempered. She should sacrifice some scruples to secure ithat. All the same, she mightn't care to see you with a pipe in your mouth all day long and everywhere. Erio (throwing his cigar in the bushes) Perhaps not. Edith (smiling) You appear in ear nest. Eric lam. Don't you believe it? Edith I'm sure she would feel com plimented if she were here. Eric (disconsolately) That's some consolation. Well, what next? Edith She might prefer ties of aless alarming type - ; Erio--What color do you would she' like, do you think? ' U ' Edith I don't know. But I should suggest white. They suit youi ' Eric I shall wear nothing else in future. (Aside) Whatwashihg bills! '. Edith Then, again, if she is fond of flowers, you might send her some. , Eric She has much finer flowers than we have at the vicarage. - Edith I don't think that matters. Eric- Well, what would she like best? Edith How should I know? One would think you could have discovered that for yourself. Eric What do you like? Thatwillbe a guide. Edith-Personally, I am fond of lilies of the valley. Eric Good! What next? Editb-I don't think she would like you to keep her in suspense too long; it is unkind. Does she suspect your feelings? Eric I fancy not. To tell yon the truth, I'm a bit afraid of her. Her po sition is better than mine, She might scorn me. Edith (indignantly) She would have no right to do that. If she liked you, your position Would make no difference I don't think you should hesitate tod long. , 1 Eric; You think I ought to risk it ? Edith You must judge for yourself. Eric Well, if you really think so Confound it! here comes your brother. I had better be off now. But I'll re member your advice; I'll take the next chance I get. Good-by. Edith Good-by. (With an effort) I'm sure I wish you success. (And as he disappears) She's a fortunate girl, who ever she is. I hope she's good enough for him. But I did think. Erio (glancing back as he turns the corner) Four pipes a day, and perhaps a cigar! White ties! Lilies of the val ley! I wonder where I can get some? And last, -but not least, a position which can wait. Well, I'll see what can be done, t wonder does she suspect.' Black and White. . PRICED MOURNING GOODS. The Mountaineer's Wife Wanted to Be Ready for Any Emergency. The best-looking married woman in that particular locality of the Cumber land mountains was Bill Magee's wife, and it was the constant wonder of the entire section why so much sweetness had wasted itself on such an ornery and doless desert as was Bill. In line with this was another wonder why Bill's wife, Susan Martin, hadn't married Jim Ferguson, as everybody thought she should have done. But that had all happened a year before I came into the mountains, and it gave me no concern whatever. Like any gentleman of taste, I admired Mrs. Magee and felt especial ly happy when, as It happened some times, the clerks in the company's store were busv and I could wait upon her, It was thus one day that as she entered the store I hopped around behind the counter like a youngster" of 20.' ' "What can I do for - you to-day, ma'am?" I said, with a fine bow. "Got any monrnin' goods?" she in quired, with a delightful hauteur. "Anybody dead?" I asked, forgetting that it wasn't my business to be asking questions. "No," she hesitated, "they ain't eg zackly yit, but I thought I might aa well be sorter lookm' 'round." "What do you want to see particular ly?" I Inquired, very curious to know what she was after. "I reckon I might as well see the whole shootin' match, fer ef I want part I'll be wantin' all thar is." I threw down two or three pieces of mourning stuff and piled black rib bon and all the other habiliments of woe in the shop down alongside. "Them's right nice," she said, after taking a good look at the display, "but I ain't quite ready to take anything rit. You see it s this 8-way, colonel, Last night Bill and Jim had words caze Jim helpad me acrost the footlog com in' from meetin', and this mornin' Bill he took his gun and went huntin' fer Jim. You know Jim and you know Bill, colonel, and ef they run acrost each other you know what's goin' to happen, Thar's a chance they won t meet up with each other, and I reckon I'd better wait." "Probably it might be better," I ven tured. . "I reckon it would," she concluded; moving slowly fmrnrrt trmxrr.
