It may be tbe Widow Sbarou imag?
ine*! a good Jeal of lt, but when she
moved over to the village of Valley
Stream lt s**etne*d to her tloit tiie \>eo
pie thereof greeted ber lu an offish
manner.
All villages neva their customs. Tha
custom lu Valley Stream, uuel oue tbat
bael prevailed for te gmt rt er of a cen?
tury, win* for a lien comer to Ht once
state e-ei'taln fa. ts to Deacon Horner.
If lt was a willow she wus eui'fol cd
to state faff nae. lier Income. li?*r inten?
tions ivgai illili*: a second iiiarriane.
wlu'tlter or not ln-r late husband elled
happy, to evbat church she belonged.
her ntlltuili* tu re*gurel lo linnell af?
fairs anti picnics, if she attended the
circus anil whether she was Kolug to
live extravagantly or economically.
The ele*.*e<-on had always taken it apoa
hilt.self to int ns Inquisitor and then
go from house to house and spread the
news. H.* gare the Willow Sharon
three days to get nettled .ind then
calle'il.
Then anel there' the good man re?
ceived the surprise of his life. He hud
scarcely propniinde*d question No. 1
when the widow replied:
"Slr, lt ls none of your business!"
Daacoa Horner bad ne mt been
*>nlke*d before, ami It vexeel lilin.
The widow bael brought four hogs
with ber. having been a farmer's wife,
and tire einys nfter the deacon's call
om* ot thos.* boes came nnd rubbed
npainst his front Rate.
Peaton Horner lifte'd up a rock and
batted thal h"i* Tbe bog was hnrt
and ran nw av squt'itling A 1 oy told the
Widow Sharon of lt. and she pat on
her hnt nnd went straight to a Justice
of the peace and got out ? summons
for malicious cruelty to animals
There was fl stnte law covmIiik the
?ase, mid the deacon was fined $10 and
costs.
It may be remarked again I hat Di*h
iou Horner was a good mun. but there
ls a limit to goodness. Not that sain.*
hog. but nnother of the widow's flock.
Kilt Into Uaf demon's cow lot. There
was uot hint; f*'r bim to tin langai but
the widow was sue*d for twapaoa nnd
had to pay $3 damages. She paid lt
nnd walte'd. If you will rall Iimik
enough a cow will get into your garden
mid devour your cabbages. In this in
Maii'-e lt was the deacon's cow. and
there was another suit for trespass.
and the deacon wits mulcted Did he
forgive tbe widow and promise that
lils cow should bo izood in future? He
didn't. He said to himself .hal be
woulil bring Hitit defiant widow low.
All of ii siiildem the village of Valley
Stream begMB Mhtag about tbe last
hours af the defunct Farmer Sharon.
It was saitl teal he died of heall tl in
ense after a quarrel wit li his wife
about another man. I'eihaps the wit!
ow was not act milly n inurdere'ss. but
she was vere close to it She heard
the story, nnd she set mit fi iib au lion
Jaw on her to run lt down. In teven
ty four hours she bud it fastened oe
the good dcaCOO and hud tiea-.na a suit
for slander. Deacon Horner made out
not to cure, but when lils lawyer Ca BM
to investigate he wns more than will?
ing to settle for $100. Mr. Sharon
bad not died from heart disease, but
from the kick of it boise
Then tbe righting widow had to ko
and put her foe it In it. I n some w ul?
alie learned that Deacon Horner hadn't
paid his pew real for fourteen years
anil that he bad passed a bad two dol?
lar bill on a windmill man. She was
Indiscreet enough lo repeal this, and
the Brat thing she knew the deacon
wns after ber. As a mutter of fnet.
his pew rent waa nil paid up. and he
had the recetpta to show. And as for
the bud bill, it was fl windmill nun
who had stuck him. The willow hnd to
nive bink thnt |S09 to s ttis* the case.
Bf this time there wasn't n family in
the village, nor for rive miles around
that wasn't tching sides, nnd ?Octets
was upset and the churches suft'oring.
Would be lucella tors had been to tbe
deacon ami his reply was:
"I'm sorry there ls any trouble, but
I can't let no whlow run over me."
And when they had gone to th*
widow, she said:
"If you think I am i*;oiiig to let any
obi willower boss me Hrotinel you ar*
aridly mistaken."
Both sides were walting for tbe next
move, when the vii Inge wns visited by
n peddler nf rat anti ?0?8 traps. He
hud fl whole wagon lund. As he passed
from house to house he heard of th.
quarrel, mid when he hail not to UM
Willow Sh: roiis nnd sold her two
traps, he sat down and said:
?'I'm going to stojt this rumpus be
tween you n ml Demon Horner. Il
isn't rii'lit. anti it isn't uice. You and
he ought to murry."
"W ha t!"
Ami Ihe ral trap man called em th*
deacon and snld:
"Drop lt: You are hurting yourself,
your church nnd tbe town. Court th*
wiiiow and murry h?*r."
"W h at!"
A s**cd lind been planted, and I'
wasn't four vee-eks before lt sprouted

excuse to call at the house, be was

Creek an Ideal Farm Hand.
A wideawake farmer noticed that bis
creek, if dammed ut a certain place,
would produce a six foot waterfall.
Ht* built a dam and put lu a water
wheel ? $.'|irO turbine that yielded
twenty five horsepower. Over the
water wheel he built a powerhouse lu
which he placed " dynamo for the
waler wheel to run. The electricity
was wired 1,700 feet to the farm build?
ings.
Then he put his _?*.??Uj to work
in every possible place about the prem?
ises. Ile heated aud lighted the house,
did the cooking and the washing; and
Ironing, did the sweeping and dusting,
beat eggs?nnd ut three different
speeds too?turned the ice cream free?:
er and in summer ventilated the house
with fans.
Now with a vacuum milking ma
chine he milks twenty cows, two at i
time; drives thc cream separator,
churns, pumps water Into every room
In the house and into the stall of each
horse nnd cow, drives lathes and drills
lu a workshop, drives a circular saw
to cut cordwood and drives an ensilage
cutter. It pays to be up to dato.
