Life on the Water.
On all the great lakes of China are
found floating islands, which are enor
mous rafts of bamboo, overlaid with
earth, and upholding above the sur-
face of the water pretty houses and
gardens. They are, in fact, aquatic
farms, bearing crops of rice and veg
etables, large sails being attached to
the dwelling house as well as to each
corner of the island whenever it Is
desired to move about. After gath
erlng a crop of grain or garden truck
from the surface of the lake, the float
farmer casts his net Into the water
and from their depths brings up a
supply of fish for his family.
Odor of the Mountains.
If you notice a strong spicy and
"woodsy" odor about any woman these
days, do not imagine that she has
adopted a new perfume. It is balsam
that you smell, for the lady has Just
returned from the Adirondacks and
brought with her a balsam pillow as
a souvenir of her stay in the moun
tains. Of course she JJammed the
pillow Into a corner of her trunk
when Bhe packed up to come home,
and equally, of course, the strong
smell of balsam permeated every
thing. It is as much a mark of the
returning vacationist as Is the coat
of tan. New York Tress.

"I'LL PAY YOU FOR THAT."
This title parable by nn unknown
author teaches its own lesson:
A hen trod on a duck's foot. Sho
dbl not mean to do It, nnd It did not
hurt the duck much; but the duck
said, "I'll pay you for that!" So tho
duck flew at the old hen, but as sho
did so her wings struck an old goose,
who stood close by.
"I'll pay you for that!" cried tho
goose, and she flew at the duck; but
ns sho did so her foot tore tho fur
of a cat who was Just then In tho
"I'll pay you for that!" cried tht
cat, and she started for the gooso;
but as sho did so her claw caught tv
tho wool of u sheep.
"I'll pay you for that!" cried tho
sheep, and she rah at the cat, but ns
she did so ber foot hit tho foot of a
dog who lay In tho sun.
"I'll pay you for that!" cried ho
and jumped at the sheep; but as ho
did so bis leg struck an old cow who
stooil by tho gate.
"I'll pay ou for that!" cried she,
and sho ran at tho dog; but ns sho
did so her born grazed the skin of a
horse who stood by a tree,
"I'll pay you for that!" cried ho,
and he ruidied nt tbo row.
What a nolso there whs! Tho horse
flew nt the cow, and the cow nt tho
dog, nnd the dog ut tho sheep, nnd
the sheep nt the cat, and tho cat nt
tho goose, ami tho gooso at the duck,
and Hie duck at the ben. What a ftisa
thero was! And all because, tho hen
accidentally slopped on tho ducks'
"III! 111! What's all this?'' cried tho
man who bad the care of them. "You
