With every step tho train was rushing nearer, and tbero was not a moment to lose. Once the young tnan stumbled and seemed about to fall, but quickly re gained his balance and hurried on.

THE MILL RUNS ITSELF. economical Way of Dotnar nnalncsa on a Councctlont Farm Joe McCormlck of tbo International Tulp company tells a delicious story of paper making In Connecticut, which shows that operating a mill Is not such n serious matter as theso big proprie tors would havo us believe. Strolling along tho countryside In haymaking time, Mr. McCormlck happened on a little paper mill which buzzed merrily In a shady dell, with everything clean and sweet around It. A look In the office showed no one there, and the vis itor then wandered over tho mill, hop ing to find some one to whom he could talk business. Tho machine was hum ming along, and It seemed Impossible that there should be no one In attend ance. Itpt even shouting failed to bring forth signs of life, and Mr. McCormlck was about to leave when he spied some men In a ha) field some distance away. "I say," he called out to the nearest one when he got within bearing, "who runs this mill?" "I do," was tho reply. "Well, who's the owner?" "Why, I am, to be sure." "Do you mean to say that the mill runs Itself?" "Cert. We start her up at 0 In tho morning, and she runs till 0 In tho evening. This mill's been weaned, stranger; she don't need a nurse.

Jealousy is accountable for most of the broken friendships. I The prettiest woman on earth Is the one least conscious of her charms. The weakest point In a man's nature Is to harm a woman by malice of speech. One of the first aids for a wounded heart Is to Becure another object of af fection. The happiest woman Is the most de pendent one, despite all new womanish theories. The persons who work behind a wom an's back are generally very lazy before her face. The womi who keeps her hat on in the theater lays herself open to the sus picion of being bald. The loyalty of most servants is in proportion to the sire and regularity of the wages paid them.
