Tall Story of Tall Corn.?The big
corn yield In Kansas last fall recalls
the story of big Kansas corn at tho
Philadelphia centennial. Among the
Kansas agricultural exhibits at the
fair was some corn on the stalks grown
In the Neosho river bottoms. It was
twenty feet high and the ears looked
as long as stove wood, says the Kansas
City Journal.
An old lady from Vermont gazed at
It and declared that the stalks were
spliced. Then she took another look
and changed her mind. "But said she,
"It didn't grow that big In one year. It
must have grown for two seasons."
The man in charge of the Kansas
exhibit was somewhat of a prevaricator
himself. "Lady," said he. In great
solemnity, "we are almost ashamed to
exhibit this corn. This has been a hot,
dry year in Kansas and we have not
been able to raise very large corn. But
we felt that it wouldn't do to have a
Kansas exhibit without corn, so we
brought this little stuff along. In a
really good year the corn grows so
high In Kansas the eagles build their
nnata In the tassels knowing full Well
that they are out of range of the farmers'
guns."
Poor Old Joe.?Mr. Austen Chamberlain,
who has created some little
stir by his remarks on the "useless
discussions" In parliament, tells an
amusing story of a visit his father,
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, once paid to
the Zoo, says Pearson's Weekly.
The famous statesman paused before
the hippopotamus and, having
beckoned to one of the keepers to
whom he was quite well known, he
asked the brute's name. The man
blushed, but made no reply.
"Come, come," said Mr. Chamberlain,
"what do you call the beast?
Tou have a name for it, haven't you?"
"Y-yes, sir," stammered the man.
"Then what is it?" asked Mr. Chamberlain
sharply.
The poor man seemed to be laboring
under great emotion.
"1 don't like to say it, sir," he replied.
"Why not?"
"You?you wouldn't like it, sir."
"Oh, never mind that," Mr. Chamberlain
replied, his curiosity now thoroughly
aroused; "tell me its name."
The man sighed hopelessly.
"You really won't like it, Mr. Chamberlain,
sir. We?we calls 'im Joe!"
A Millionaire's Vacation.?Pere Loti
tells a story, according to the Washington
Post, "that illustrates well the
energy of your men of affairs:"
"A gentleman called at the office of
an indefatigable millionaire financier,
It was 4 o'clock in the afternoon and
the financier lay back in a revolving
chair with his feet on his desk and a
picture magazine in his hand.
" 'I've worked mighty hard for the
last ten years without a day's vacation,'
he explained. 'I feel all run
down and I'm now going to take a
long rest'
" 'And a well-earned rest it will be
too,' said the visitor earnestly.
"The visitor departed, expecting that
the millionaire would set out at once
for Europe or California, but the next
morning he saw him presiding as busily
as ever at an important directors'
meeting.
^ " 'Why, how about that long rest?*
he asked.
"The millionaire frowned in a mazei
ment '
"Didn't I take it yesterday afternoon?*
he asked."
A Story Jones Tolls.?In the south
they say it is customary for the waiter
to ask when breakfast Is ordered,
"How will you have your algs?"
One' morning a man had ordered
some sausage, cakes, rolls and coffee,
says the Chrlcago Record-Herald.
When the waiter asked, "Hov will
you have your algs?" the man replied,
"You may eliminate my eggs t ds
morning."
The negro looked at him and wenv
to the kitchen. Returning shortly he
said: "Eh, eh, mister, how did you
say you would have your eggs?"
The man replied, "I said you could
eliminate the eggs." Back went the
negro to the kitchen, but returned
pretty soon and said: "Say, mister,
we have got a splendid chef, who has
worked in most of the largest and best
places In the north, and he says he
dun have no tools to 'limlnate any
algs."
Not Included.?Mr. Smith Is a respectable
gentleman, who, though he
has been married several years, has
not yet lost his admiration for a pretty
girl. Having occasion to remove
from his present abode he was recently
looking for a suitable house,
and discovered one to let In a quiet
street. Upon ringing the bell a very
piquant and lovely Irish girl came to
the door, looking quite charming in
her black dress and mob cap.
"Is this house to let?" asked Mr.
Smith.
"Yes."
"Are you to be let with it?" he said,
with a bland smile.
"No, sir," answered the maid, very
demurely, "I am to be let alone!"?
Washington Star.
Jimmy's Come Back.?A well known
idiot named Jamie Frazer surprised
people sometimes by his replies. The
members of one parish had for some
time distressed the minister by their
habit of sleeping in church. He had of
ten endeavored to Impress them with
a sense of the Impropriety of such
conduct, and one day when Jamie was
sitting in the front gallery wideawake
when many were slumbering around
him, the clergyman endeavored to
arouse the attention of his hearers by
stating the fact, saying: "You see
even Jamie Frazer, the idiot, does not
fall asleep as so many of you are doing."
Jamie, not liking, perhaps, to be
designated, coolly replied: "An' if I
hadn't been an idiot I would have been
sleepin', too."?New York Globe.
The Poor Pedestrian.?Secretary of
War Garrison is of course no foe to
the automobile; but during his judgeship
in New Jersey he always showed
a commendable respect for the rights
of the foot passenger.
Mr. Garrison, commenting on an accMpnt
where an automobile had been
selfish and reckless, once said:
"This man's attitude toward the
general public reminds me of Spede,
whom a friend asked:
" 'How did you come to run over
that poor old fellow? Were you running
too fast?'
" 'No,' said the automobilist, with
a grim smile, 'he was running too
slow.'"
Hired to Stick.?The jury, after long
deliberation, seemed unable to agree
in a perfectly clear case. The judge
thoroughly exasperated at the delay,
said:
"I discharge this Jury."
One sensitive juror, indignant at
what he considered a rebuke, faced
the judge.
"You can't discharge me," he said
with a tone of conviction.
"And why not?" inquired the judge
in surprise.
"Because," announced the Juror,
pointing to the lawyer for the defense,
"I was hired by that man there!"?
Ladies' Home Journal.
Left the Dean Chuckling.?The
dean of the law department was very
busy and rather cross. The telephone
rang.
"Well, what is it?" he snapped.
"Is that the city gas works?" said
a woman's soft voice.
"No, madam," roared the dean;
"this is the University Law department."
"An," sne answered, in me oweeicoi
of tones. "I didn't miss It so far, after
all, did I?"
And the weary dean chuckled all
afternoon.
it'"That wasn't a bad epigram on
the magistrate's part" said the somewhat
educated tramp who had been
convicted for vagrancy.
"What did he say?" asked the
tramp's pal.
"Seven days," came the reply.
"That ain't no epigram Is it?"
"I'm sure it is. I once asked a
parson what an epigram was, and he
said, 'It's a short sentence that so\tnds
light, but gives you plenty to think
about.' "?London Telegraph.

MARY AND HER LAMB
She .Took It to Sch<:>ol in M?Machu<
sett* Ninety-Eight Year* Ago.
Anxious to ascertain beyond question
whether there was ever a "Mary'
who "had a little lamb." as the widelj
known nursery poem recites, Mrs. L
W. Owens, of Pueblo, Colo., traveled
to Massachusetts?a distance of mor<
than 2,000 miles?to make a thorough
Investigation.
She has done It. She has found
that there was a real "Mary," and
that she had a real lamb. The lamt
went to school, too, one day, as th<
famous verses assert. The younf
poet, John Roulstone, who immortalized
Mary and the lamb, took som<
poetic liberties with the facts, Mrs
Owens found, but the poem is correct
in the main points, were are mt
verses as they were written and handed
to Mary, the owner of the lamb:
Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow;
And everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sire to go.
It followed her to school one day,
Which was against the rule;
It made the children laugh and plaj
To see the lamb at school.
And so the teacher turned it out,
But it lingered near.
And waited patiently about
Till Mary did appear.
"What makes the lamb love Marj
so?"
The eager children cried,
"Why Mary loves the lamb, yoi
know,"
The teacher then replied.
The "Mary" of the poem was Man
Sawyer, and later Mary Sawyer Tay<
lor. She lived at Sterling, Mass., ant

ago, she owned the lamb.
Mary's lamb was a pet. She kep
its fleece nice and clean, and some
times tied a ribbon about Its neck
One day she took the lamb to school
When she went to the platform t<
recite the lamb clattered after her
That made a laugh.
Mary then took the lamb outsld<
and fastened It to a shed. She tool
the lamb home at the noon recess
John Roulstone, who was studyinf
for the ministry with Rev. Samue
Chapen, of Sterling,, was on a visit t<
the school that day. The next daj
he rode up to the school and handet
Mary the poem.
Mrs. Owens, who is president of th<
Loyal Boy's Club of the West, mad<
the trip from her distant home foi
the sole purpose of delving into th<
past and getting the truth about th<
lamb episode. Mrs. Owens will writ*
a book on the life and death of Mar:
and her lamb. In a talk about hei
Investigations Mrs. Owens said:
"I came from Colorado purposely
to learn if It were true that there ex
isted a Mary and a little lamb, wh<
followed her to school. I am satisflec
beyond question.
"Years and years ago In the towi
of Sterling, near Worcester, live<
Marv Sawver. who later became Mrs
Taylor, and, like her lamb, which wa
celebrated In verse by a clever youni
Harvard man of the times, Johi
Roulstone. She also became noted.
"Mary Sawyer, at the time sh<
came Into possession of the lamb, wai
8 years old. That was In 1814. Thi
lamb, I find, after Interviewing ol<
residents of Sterling, was born abou
March 1 of that year, and, therefore
was a spring lamb. The little thlni
lived until the net November, whei
It met an untimely and tragic death
"I find that on Thanksgiving morn
Ing Mary was playing In the barnyan
at her home. The lamb, which ha<
before this become very fond of hei
and had created the Incident of th<
school, was following her about, frol
lcking. Unfortunately for the laml
and also much to the sorrow of Mary

"I have been led to believe that th<
cow became lealous of the affectloi
which Mary showed for the lamb am
seized the opportunity to dispose o
It.
"The Incident which John Roul
stone made famous by verse as re
lated to me by Mary's old school
teacher. Rebekah Kimball, deviates li
some ways from the verse.
"It Is true that the lamb on th
morning In question followed Mar;
and brother Nat to school. They dls
covered it as they were crossing i
stone wall, and at the suggestion of Na
the lamb was brought Into the school
house and hid in one of the desks

LEMONS IN ITALY. ?
a
1 Island of 8ieily Leads World in Pro- Jj
duction of Ysllow Fruit. ^
> Italy hands us more lemons, speak- f
' ing literally and not slanglly, than does 0
. all the rest of the world outside our p
1 own domain. The eastern half of the P
1 United States is almost wholly sup- a
? plied from Italy, mainly through the f
ports of New York and New Orleans, p
says the New York Sun. t
The middle west, north of the Ohio,
1 rec iivea one-half of ita supply from a
Italy. On the other hand, the territory c
went of the Mlasour! river, with west- c
, ern Texaa, uses almost exclusively ^
California lemons. j
More than half a billion pounds of t
t lemons are exported by Italy, and we D
take about a third of them. Almost 90 ,
per cent of these shipments arrive at v
1 the port of New York, half of them i
1 coming in the two months of May and Q
i June. The southern provinces and c
Sicily produces most of the fruit It is c
't estimated that there are 8,000,000 lem- g
- on trees in Italy, and that at least 6,- t
000 000 of these are in Sicily.
At Sorrento and other points along
the Bay of Naples, familiar to tourists,
the:*e are about 180,000 trees. Capri,
too, produces lemons, but It Is more fa- ^
mous for its oranges. At Sorrento, or
Ravello, one looks out of his hotel window
upon the "gardens" of lemon and c
orange trees hanging full of fruit. A 0
single tree sometimes produces 1,000 n
, lemons, and in Sicily the product of 1

At the places named and all along
, the Amalfl coast the trees are planted n
In narrow plots along the seaward side 0
[ of the mountain. These plots are ter- *
races, supported by stone walls built r
, laboriously during the last 2,000 years. z
The soil which these walls hold h
against the mountain side Is mostly a a
rich volcanic earth. The mountain Is *
limestone and rises in bold precipice* ^
out of the sea, but it has been covered F
at some remote period with pumice, *
dust and lava, which decompose into c
' an excellent soil.
The lemon and orange trees are cov- ^
r ered with straw mats fastened to trel- 11
k Uses to protect them from frost during a
1 the winter months. These mats often v
? cover a whole mountain side, the ter- 1
- races rising one above another from 1
the sea to the summit. The mats are v
1 removed when the danger of frost is
I past. 8
> The position of the proprietors of the 1
i gardens along much of the coast from a
I Naples southward to Salerno Is now a
unsound In view of the large migration 8
s of laborers from this coast to America 1
. and the consequent rise of wages. The r
t landlord no longer finds active compe- F
> tltion from tenants for their "gardens."
Ravello, a town on the mountain back A
of Amalfl, had in the 13th century 36,- F
000 inhabitants. At present it has but ^
1816, and the number la declining. 0
The recent war with Turkey Intensely
interested the laboring element of 0
Italy for tne reason inat uie son 01
r Tripoli is thought to be very rich and
will be distributed in farms to Italians,
now that the war is ended. An Italian
officer assured the writer that it would
produce three crops of wheat a year
r and two of grapes. It needs only irrigation,
and the water is found a few
feet under the surface.
1 If these hopes are realized the migration
of Italians to America will greatly
. diminish, the tide being diverted with
Increased volume to Tripoli. Labor
j will become scarcer and wages higher,
3 not only along the Amalfl coast but in
Sicily also, where cheap labor is the set
cret of the present Immense production
of lemons and of the low price at which
they can be sold.
What affects the labor supply of Sicily
is of great importance to Amerl}
can producers of lemons, as Sicily is
* the centre of the lemon Industry of the
? world. The number of lemon trees in
c Sicily Is over twelve times the number

cupy a strip along the eastern and
> northern coast of the island, the strip
f widening inland where fertile valleys
1 occur. Sometimes the groves ascend
j the mountains to the height of a thousi
and feet.
r The finest grades are shipped to the

? box. The size 200 to a box goes chiefly
t to England. But Germany also takes
r a large lemon. The coarse fruit is
likely to consist mainly of woody fibre. r
. But the size shipped depends somewhat
) on the custom laws of the importing
- country. Where the duty is based on
1 weight the small sizes are preferred. 1
1 Where it is based on number the large I
i. sizes are sent.
3 The Italian lemon garden varies in
\ area, being commonly extremely small
in comparison with California's groves, j
- About Palermo, however, there are gar- I
3 dens having as many as 2,000 acres. P
j Fertilizers are used, but there is little
t or no system. Nor is there agreement i!
> as to the proper Interval between trees, v
* Irrigation is employed. In the Sorren- ?
tine region where the water supply is
- short, a tree averages not over 400 R
j lemons, but well handled Sicilian
r groves may produce 1,200 or more per v
i tree. The more northern gardens pro- 0
- duce less than those of Sorrento.
5 The lemon buds are grafted on a
j small bitter orange tree on account of .
its better resistance to the gum dis- ^
e ease, which devasted the groves of Sic- 4
J lly thirty years ago. Pruning is less ^
f systematic than in Caiirornia. Tne aim
of the pruner is to secure an open *
- spreading form of tree. Tillage is by i
hand labor, and not very Intelligent. <j
n Frost is provided against, especially 5
when the trees are in bloom, in April (
