His wife was already beginning In r housework. She had taken up the | n;;> 10 shake, she was moving the j fnn.it tire ahout tin* room in an aim l,.s< sort of way. and there was a wor j ri.ti look upon her face. ?Tome along, 1'olly girl,"' said 1 futlicr. IN* took Ills little daughter's hand, Kitijiprd on his hat, and they went out. i 'pin' house was exactly like three ? dozen other houses along the street, a j Himdl, wooden structure with a tiny I |i:wl and seven rooms. There was the [ wine strip of draggled lawn in front of each. Hut in the distance were fields and Mils, crowned with green. The wild country was all ahout thyin. They strode down the street together. "Father, I don't like Sundays, he ciiuse mother's always cleaning," said lolly wistfully. "Cleaning? Oil, well, she's pot to (jcim, I suppose," said father. He was U?Dg of a gl^I hg had known be fore ho was ^OrrledT who was rather 'untidy, ana \?oula never have both ered about gleaning more than two pV thr^p tlipef} a year. What good ilai^S they ?ad had together! It was Btrange how vividly her face came back to him after ten years of mar. rlnge. "How'd you like us to run away, Polly?" asked father. "Really?" inquired Polly, clutching hie hand more tightly. "Really, Polly. Run away some where where there's never any clean ing." He tried not to show his bit terness. ''Just you nnd me, wandering niong tlie roads. Or maybe" ? a trnin whistled In the distance ? "we'll take 11 train somewhere and never come [buck. We'll go and see foreign parts, [where the palm trees grow, and big binlfi, all blue and green and yellow an*! red fly through the branches." "Oh, that'll be splendid!" said Polly, clapping her hands. "Or maybe we'll take a ship to Italy, and see all the ruins and the picture gnlleries. Then we'll go on to Egypt in,(l see the desert, and the camels j.'<>!ng by with packs of rugs on their bucks. What d'you say to that?" "Oh, wouldn't It be nice!" said Polly. They had begun to ascend the hill behind the town. They toiled up and stood looking down. The houses seemed isolated in a vast forest. | "Mnylie we'll just walk on and on Sill (lie forest's all about us. And then we'll camp in the woods and light a ifire, and catch some trout and cook itheiii for dinner. And sleep under the ^Uirs. How about that?" I "Wonderful," said Polly. "But sup pose it came on to rain, father?" I "The leaves will be so thick that not n drop of rain can come through. Besides, who cares for a little rain? Not we. Anyway, it's nicer than stay- j Inn nt home whero there's cleaning g< r.? on, isn't it?' ' j ''Much nicer," said Polly, -Wayne i ni taning you too far. You're tired, dear?" "A little bit," said IVilly. "Oh, fath er, what a pity." I "What's a pity?" 1 "Did you know mother has (luck j and green pens for dinner?" I "I )uck and preen |?eas? What do we I care for duck and cr?*en peas?" "N ? nothing." si.id Polly, a little I wistfully. "Mayhe we had hotter he getting hack and start n?*xt Sunday instead." 1 suggested father. "It Is a little late, isn't it. I'oll !" "A litth*. father." answered Polly. ' Tliey started hack, very slowly and wistfully, hut as thev neared t lie house they went faster and faster, j I Such a delicious smell came from the' : dining room. And there stood mother I at the door. "Well, you have been for a long ! walk," said mother, sthlling. "And ; you're just In time, for dinner's on the table." They went in. The interior was as spick and span as a new pin. The 1 odors that came from beneath the dish cover were simply indescribable. ! "Duck is nice with green peas, isn't ( it. father?" suggested Polly. "You mother's a pretty good cook," | j answered father. I | Mother smiled. She knew all about ; the man about the house. Scene of Much Warfare. Since tii*> Si. I.nwrence If? th<? boun dary separating Canada and the Unit ed States, It was only natural that in the wars between the French and the English, and between England and the American colonists, the Thousand Is lands were the scene of Important campaigns. Some of the early struggles be tween the Iroquois and the Algonqulns were fought in the neighborhood. In the French-English war many battles took place among the islands and on the adjoining shores. In the Revolu tion and in the War of 1812, the de fense of the section was considered of decided importance. In the Patriots' war, with Its recurrent outbreaks in 1837 and 1839, many of the more im portant clashes took place on this part of the river. Notable among these were the capture of the British frigate Sir Robert Peel, near Well's island, ami the battle of the Windmill, near Prescott, In 1838. Whisky Not Necessity of Life. Whisky is not a necessity of life, even for a Scotchman in the tropics, according to a decision reached in the courts of Nairobi. Kanya Colony, East Africa, after lengthy legnl argu ments. repftrts the London Express | correspondent. The question arose over a case in which a grocery store sued a minor for goods supplied. The law says that the only debts which can be re covered from minors are those In curred in supplying the necessities of | life. The debt in question included an item of three bottles of whisky. It was argued for the prosecution that as the minor was a Scotchman living In the tropics whisky was a necessity, but his arguments were overridden, and an order made for the debt, minus the value of the three bottles. Reward of Merit. "What's the most attractive feature of farm life?" asked the city dweller. "Knocking off work on Saturday and going to town in the flivver," said the truthful agriculturist. ?

A Copenhagen correspondent gives the following description ot daily life in IVtrogmd, where the popnlatiun passes the day in a con ti mums light against death from hunger: It was a Bolshevist hoy who taught uie how to hunt. We met In the Sadovaja street in Petrograd. "Have you liud anything to eat to day?'' he asked, as is the custom in ? starving city. I told him that 1 hud hud only an apple although 1 had money. "Come along then, I know a place where we can get some solid food to day." This was for me the introduc tion to u l-l days' course in the art of procuring food during a famine. We entered tirsl a chop-house quite near, where we got pea-soup and por ridge, though in very small portions. My comrade then proposed that we should return to the Nevsky Pr??spi*ct, where meat and potatoes were to he had in what was formerly an elegant night restaurant. The uish. meat and potatoes mixed, was served in square pieces of ahout three indies. "Now we have to walk a h?ng way." my comrade said. "We have to cross the river, and in the Boulevard Kron veski there is a place whore we can get a piece id* bread." After telling me that he was a soldier in the lied army, lie went on: "I am here now on a fortnight's leave of absence, and if you will meet me at 0 p. m. today 1 will show you a secret place where you can get a satisfying meal of potatoes, herrings and bread." 1 had not thought it possible to >;et a square meal in Petrograd, anil I became hun gry at the thought of potatoes. At 5 p. in. sharp he returned full dress. t?ip-boots, fur cap with the red soviet star, a ritle in a strap over bis shoulder, and a leather belt with cartridge pouches. He took uie far away, and finally we stopped in front of a large house. It was quite dark, but down below our feet we saw a faint light through the chink of n door. We waited a little to make sure that nobody saw us, and then went down the stairs. We entered quick ly, and found ourselves in a cellar. By the light of a lamp I saw lted sol diers and civlliuns sitting at small tables with large dishes of steaming potatoes. Tbe young soldier knew the landlord of the place, and ordered a dish of potatoes and salt herring We afterward had some tea and rye bread. When we paid, my friend rec ommended me to tbe landlord, and told me that 1 could come here every night, which I did. Will Be Mammoth Bridge.
