King Good Heart I will tell you be
was one of the kindest men who ever
lived He ruled a country far over
the sea ever so many jears ago and his
people loved him very dearly. Not
only did his people love him, but the
animals who lived in that land as well
Even the flowers lifted their heads
higher when he passed by.
Now it is of the beautiful flow er gar
den of King Good Heart that I am
going to tell jou It was the most
beautiful garden in the whole world
Beautiful roses with soft, white, pink,
and red checks mingled with fragrant
lilies and pretty violets and there were
so many of them that it would have
been impossible to count them.
Strange as it may seem this wrn
derful flower garden was always :n
bloom Day after day the king's serv
ants would come to gather blossoms at
his bidding, to be sent to some very
sick person. And how dearly the flow
ers loved to be gathered for such pur
poses. As fast as they were gathered
others would bloom their fragrance
perfumed the wliole land.

and year out, King Good Heart was
alvvajs doing something for others
Alas, in other parts eft the world things
were different No one knew this bet

Traveling birds and breezes had to'd

And thus the flowers were sad at
times You see, they were so very bap
py themselves, they wanted all the rest
of the world to be happj
How could they make the rest of
the world happier? That was thi one
question that took up their time, and
day after day they talked and planned
One verj rare day when all the land
of King Good Heart was singing with
happiness the flowers came to a de
cision. They would send messengers
of love and happiness throughput the
whole world.
"We will wait until King Good
Heart passes by on his morning walk,"
said the tall white lily.
The words had hardly left her pret
ty flower mouth when down the garden
path the king came, walking very
"Ready readj-," whispered the lily.
The king came nearer and when he
was just opposite the garden millions
of beautiful flowers leaped from off
their stalks -and flew up into the air.

Sifting Flour.
Mrs. J Ij. M In sifting flour for angel
food, or anything that requires several
slftings, use paper to sift on Instead of
dishes or tins, and the work will be more

two opposite sides of the paper together
the flour can be easilj poured Into tht
sifter for another sifting In this ay
no flour is wasted and there are no dish

Die joq ever have the experience of

there was apparently nothing la the land

And now another question.
Dc you ever attempt to seek oat what
has been tbo train of thought or the
aeroplane of suggestion that has con
vened this place or person to your mind?
Following TrnJn of Thought.
Again. I II answer for jou. You have
not But vou rcallj ought to try. for
trulj it s a most interesting experiment.
Some one suggested it to me and tho
other evening I tried it.
I was walking down the street alone.
after a visit to the dressmaker's I was
thinking of a new spring gown and of
nothing cKc when suddenlj, quite to my
own surprise. I realized that the thought
of a mart 1 hadn t been for a j ear or
thought of for tho same length of time
hod popped into my head At first it
seemed to mo that the coming of this
thought at just that moment was abso
lutclj unaccountable, and then I searched
about in mj mind and found that I had
just passed the house where his first
wifi s people had once lived.

Mj- eje had undoubtedly lit upon tho
houre and far below the surface of my
conscious mind the train of thought had
started that brought that man s Image
to me The process of suggestion had
been so swift that I had been entirely un
aware of it, but it was there just the
same, and I suppose it always is even
when wc utterly fail to identify It
In a somewhat similar fashion, often
during a conversation, after a moment's
silence, you or your companion will sud
denly speak out on a subject quite alien
to nhJ jou had been talking about.
Now jou will find it a most interesting
experiment to trace, or ask him to trace,
the train of thought that earned jou or
him so far away from the previous
