Of course a woman who has done anything toward her own support would be out of the question 1"' Harry uaiutiy brushed, the ashes from his cigar and waited for his friend to speak. They were b:th young men of fashion, dressed in white flannel, sitting on the piazza of a gieat, fashionable hojtel. "I can see the future Mrs. Jackson,'' Ids friend laughed, "though I can't for the life of me -;e. v:hy you object so to a woman's earning her. iivhhoo l if she. has to. You know there are( too manj changes of. fortune. Wiay, one of the most charming girls I know ' . P?haw!" interrupted Harry. I know to whom you refer, and you think . she l-i sighing a : little for me. "Weil. Eleanor Piatts may be a stunner, but the very fact that she t ike3 pupils kills her for rse."" The other voting man flushel a little and his eyes burned with a brighter light as he replied : "Miss Piatts has shown herstdf a heroine. In the face of society she ha risen to an emergency. Her father's failure was an honorable -one, and when he died she refused to be dependent upon. that queruious, miserly aunt, and consequently was cut oil from her will, By the way, she is here as Marion EddisVf guest." There was a little pause. Harry laughed and soon the two strolled oil toward Harry's yacht. The young girl just around the corner of the house from where they had been sitting clasped Iter' hands tightly to-' getliev, pressed her lips, and au angry flush spread over her face. Then the ridiculousness of the whole thing came over her, and she sailed, da spite of the hurt that would make itself felt. That night there was a hop at the hotel, and Robert Evelytli was surpri' 1 to see his friend Harry devoting himself to the very girl he ha h sneere 1 at that afternoon. Eleanor was dazzling.! y':-beautiful that night. She was dressed in pure white, her cheeks were flushed, her deep browi eyes shone with a happy light, and her lips were -parted in a smile a. she circled around the room with Harry for a pje-t-ner. "Ah, she has always loved- him,' thought Robert, bitterly. "And Harry loved her, I believe, before her father failed- Poor girl! How little she knows that he is trifling with her, the seoun "dreir ; After the waltz Harry and Eleanor promenaded slowly up and "dawn the hall. . 'I have not seen you for two years," he saiu. tf "Xo, not since papa died. You have been abroad. Did you. enjoy sight seeing?" she replied. "Immensely, though Paris suits me best to live in. You use to like Italy.'1 "Ye3, and Italy has served me to good advantage. I have nuoiis in singing and w L i. CD O Italian, you know." Harry winced a little. She was so beautiful and charming that he had al most forgottec. Besides, if he did amuse himself now he might be forgiven, for he ned to know her so well. He had faueied himsell . . " , M' quite ia love. She had served (fob all his ideals, exceiit for her absurd itjp' being independent of her relative;. Iiobert watched them and sidled. He had long loved Eleanor, but his .fortune was s.o small compared with Harry's, an 1 Eleanor (ieserved so'much that he ha 1 decided to wit ad raw fro n tho lis: of suitors, if she could win Harry o.nk there was nothing for him to do bat bear it. The days went on. She was by far the mo-t charming and the cleverest girl at the hotel. No aaitte ar theutri- cals were successful fact, was as: v thin: thou: her, nor, in ua she wouM help.

On the last night' the guests ha! arranged for an imnromntu entertain merit. E'eauor was in demand on every hand. " - Between a -i iree an 1 a piano solo ho stole out to the nxiz. i to sit a :na:nent in ihe cool night air. S ora j oae stoo 1 before her it was Harry. "I have come to tell you, Eleanor, that I. V - - k-- , h K CnVF.n?ATIOX, I cannot let you go without telling you I love you." ; ; There was no answer. no took courage from her silence and sat down beside her. "Dearest, you are so beautiful! And you love me, do you not?" "No," she said in alow, dhtiact voice. "No!" He started back in amoierneat. - "Why! I thought I used to think you know we used to be " "Yes; before my father diei. I know we were good friends'. That is all. 1 never loved you." "Then you have trifled with me," he interrupted in an indignant tone. "I supposed it was out of the question for you t& marry auy girl who ha 1 d me anything toward her support. And it is j- utterly out of the question for me to think of marrying you," and she left him and and went in, for it was her turn to sieg. Robert had seen Eleanor go out on tha piazza and he saw Harry follow her. He felt that his fears were, realized aud, noticing nothing, sat lost in. thought. Then he heard Eleanor singing. Hov beautiful was her deep contralto voice as it rose and fell ia the Italian love song! She was so beautiful; so near, yet so far, from him. The song ended. She was "called back, then recalled. Ho.v foul everv one was of her! Well, he must leini to bear his disappointment. Hark, she was singing again. It was only "Auld Robin Gray," yet how she sang it. Ann she was looking at him full in.the face. He , could not bear it; he was thank :'ul it was the last on the pro gramme; while people were crowding around her and congratulating her, ;o only on her singing, but perhaps; on her engagement, he would steal out into the darkness. . $r In a deserted corner of the piazza he found Harry sitting alone. In the dark ness he could just see- that his face was buried in his hands. Ha turned back and met Eleanor in thcrdnll, alone and radiantly beautiful. She slipped her hand in his arm, saying: "Do you mw.d walking a moment with me? - It looks so refreshingly cool in the star light." Robert's heart beat violently. Could it be possible she had refused Harry? And how tender her manner seemed to ward him. " "We go to-morrow," she said after a little pause. "Our beautiful summer is over." "Are you sorry?" he murmur el, his soul in his eyes. She looked up. At her faint 3niiie he caught her in his arms. "E'.eanor! Eleanot! I love you so! Canyon do you " For an answer a soft arm stole around his neck, "How blind you have been?" she whisoerel. "I thought you loved Harry," he said. '!"

OVERFEEDING HOGS. 2dany ?eem to think that a hog cannot he overfed, and that it makes no difler- enc3 if they do leave a lot of fcei at one meal, they will come back and eat it up when they are hungry, so there is nothing wasted after all, seavs.a writer in . - r tho Swineherd. Bat ii is easily possible to go to tie other extreme. to feed too little, so as not to secure a steady gain, or to feed too much and so increase the cost as to materially lessen the profits. Feeding too little is a loss, while feed ing too much is a waste. A good as well as an economical plan is to f ;reA regu larly at statel times and then feed when fattening all they can eat up clean. They wilt keep healthier and thrive better than is possible by keeping feed beiore them all the time. It is what tha ani mals digest, not what they eat. t'uat de termines the gain in proportion to the amount of feed supplied. Feed left over is, to say the least, distasteful to a hog, while if sloo is soaked before feeding it will ferment and get sour. niou rr.iCED feed. The high price of cow feedhas been a serious drawback to the dairy interest. Those who had no soiling crop3 to feed during the late drouth and had to buy mill-feed, have not raada much money, because dairy products hava not been as high in proportion as feed. Tue lessou o be learned i?, to grow all o( our cov feed, or as near all as our circumstances will admit of. I know that tho scien tists tell us that our cow rations must be "balanced," and I also know very w-ell that too much balancing of rations, by buying high-priced feed, wilh decidedly Unbalance the profits of dairying. The long and short of scientific feeding is just tills: If you have- home-grown feed that i.s out of balance and bought feed will cost more that what you have, and the gain in fee ling the bought feed will not make up the diilerenco in prices, tSen feed what, 5 ou have, aud you will b feeding a "scientific" ration, for' sci ence; means knowledge, and if you can make more ukoney by feeding your home grown ration than you can by buy . iug stun to balance it, then you are feed ing scientifically, for you are feeding iu the line of the best profit.
