Writer Tells of Sordid Places That
Are Made Bright by Memories
of Dickens.
Mr. F. Hopklnson Smith, while In
London, sought out and visited the '
various placee made memorable by
their connection with Charles Dickens'
name. Mr. Smith was especially Im
pressed by the fact that memories of
Dickens were still vivid in the minds
of the people. A little printer boy
showed him where Dickens earned six
shillings a week, tylngtup and lah'ellng
pots of blacking.
"Oh, I know hlra, gov'nor," was the
usual answer of the older inhabitants
to Mr. Smith's inquiries. "Over there
he used to live, and it ain't far from
here to Camden Town, where he lived
when he was working in the blacking
place." He was even able to find un
urchin who could point out the spot
where Dickens "dropped stealthily one
evening, with fear and trembling, into
a dark letter box up a dark court in
Fleet street" the first of the "Sketches
by Boz."
He was especially pleased with his
visit to the house where Dickens went
to board after his marriage. Of this,
he says:
"The place is Btill a delightful,
typically English boarding house, kept
by two of the most charming old ladies
you ever saw. Dickens and his wife
occupied a little tucked-up room tacked
on to the back of the house. I mean-,
ured the place myself and it was eight
feet every way. It has one small win-1
dow, looking out into the back yard. It
was the moldlest and stuffiest old place
you can imagine, but it was there that
Dickens wrote the most of the 'Pick
wick Papers.' "Youth's Companion.
Tne Dancing Floor.
From year to year various sub
stances are suggested, tried out,
round satisfactory and then super
seded by others to produce smooth
dancing floors. The wax candle,
chipped liberally over the floor and
then energetically rubbed In, has had
its day. So has talcum powder,
which has been used by the boxful
to produce a good dancing surface.
Now corn meal is looked upon as the
best polisher of a dancing floor. It
is sprinkled over the floor, not too
liberally, and rubbed in by the dano

8hows How Hundred Dollars an
Acre Can Be Made.
A profit of $100 an acre from grow
ing weeds which have medicinal prop
erties is a possibility for any farmer,
according to experiments which Prof.
B. Kremer of the State Agricultural
college of Wisconsin has been making
on a four-acre tract near Madison.
Catnip, boneset, spearmint, pepper
mint, sage, horehound and tansy are
some of the drug weeds which Pro
fessor Kremer found could be grown
with profit For all these the're is a
steady market, and they can be grown
with no more care or attention than
ordinary timothy hay. While the lat
ter is high at one cent a pound, the
leaves of the drug weeds, when prop
erly dried and oured, may be sold for
from three to eight cents a pound.
Spearmint is one of the many weeds
ordinarily neglected which Professor
Kremer finds can be grown with profit
Manufacturers of chewing gum. and
other commodities use large quantities
and it can be grown on wet, soggy
ground which is useless for any other
The finest quality of catnip can be
sold for eight cents a pound, while
sage and peppermint present good pos
sibilities of profit. The boneset is a
wild plant usually growing in marshy
ground. It may be planted broadcast
like timothy and the dried plants are
worth from five to six cents a pound.
Young Woman's Presence of Mind In
Emergency Saved Life of

Among many who figured in acci

As the boy plunged into the water
his cries and the splash of the- body
wore heard by two young women
crossing the Third avenue bridge.
With rare presence of mind one of
the young women threw her paraBol
to the boy. Tho latter, unable to
swim, grasped at tho sunshade, and it
bupported him like a buoy. He was
kept afloat until several men res
cued him by throwing a rope to him.
The young womaa who deprived
herself of her parasol, thereby assist
ing In saving the boy's life, could not
be found by those who witnessed the
accident Instead she hurried away.

Reforming the Boarders. '
The boarding house had changed
hands, and the regular boarders worn
changing some of their habits to suit '
the aggressive new landlady. The
sword had fallen rather promiscuously
during this pruning of bad habits, but
they were all amused when it struck
the haughty young professor. Sitting
with his head bowed gracefully on bis I
shapely hand, It was his custom to pay
no attention to the things that were
passed around the breakfast table.
The landlady brought in a plate of
hot biscuits and held them In front of
him. He did not look up. She Jogged
his elbow, and looking up he said lofti
ly: "I do not care to be dlstrrbed
when I am meditating."
The regular boarders stopped eating,
awaiting her reply. Sho stared at
him for a second, then said decidedly;
