IShrt was a a ery pretty girl dainty and neat from the tip of her new hat to tbe tips of her new shoes. Hut he did not look up. "Just in time." he added. "I want to dictate a letter before you go." He paused, and the young girl, as if eizcv! with i mdden fancy, quietly "f tepped into the room and seated her- ti-U at the typewriter. Her blight eyes were tld man.

Abel glanced it through. "A baautiful copy,' he said, and carefully folded it. ' TlTen he placed it ia an envelope and dipped a pen in ink. "I do not knoT hi9 address," he said, aud knit his brows. The girl at the end of the desk ex tended her hand. "If you have no objection," sho quietly said, "I will deliver it to him in person." e The old man looked up at the fair face bending over him.

"Perhaps I wa3 hasty," he slowdy said, "but tne provocation was great, i Theu he quickly added: "But, know i icg as you did that I opposed the ' wedding, and your father opposed it, i too, why did you permit yourself to marry my boy?"

He might have wailed. I wanted him to wait! But he is so proud, self-willed. I am very sorry that I should bo the means of sepa rating you, and, I am quite suro I am not worth the great: sacrifice my dear my husband has made." Abel was quite suro thevw were ! tears in her eyes again, but he did not look up. "Where is Jim uw?" ho asked. Theu ha smiled grimly. "And why are you not enjoying your your wed ding tour?" "fliero was a vacancy in the banh where ray father is employed," said the girl, "aud father secured it for Jim. Hi duties began to-day. Per haps wo will take our wedding jour ney later. We have to look out care fully for tho main chance now, you know." "And you .didn't epect to fall back on my dollars?" said the old man. "Nor a penny of them," quickly re plied the girl.

"No. At least he didn't know I was coming. Lather will tell him to meet me at tbe corner at 5 o'clock. I must go." "Wait," snhl tho old man quickly. He looked at her searchiugly. She met his paze with a smile, iler mind was ou dim. Abel deliberately put . the will baik into the envelope, aud tho envelope iu its pigeonhole. Then he picked up the letter in its uaaddressed envelope, tore it into minuto particles and tossed them into tbe basket. "I've changed my mind," he softly muttered.

When haying and harvest are drne it ia well to go around the lle'us auu cut down weed", nert to the fence thai the mower and reaper could not reach. Since farmers havo got out of the habit of swinging the scythe, fenc corners crow up with shiubi and weeds that no pood farmers would allow, and which soou grow away from tho fence aud take tho fertility from crops for some distance into the field. Enough wee.ls are Allowed to go - to Beed in some fence corners to seel tht entire farm. l -..'.. C.rcen Feed For Dairy Cowl. It is unwh-e to allow costs to fait of! in their flow of milk on account of short pasture aud dry weather, for once a cow fails in her milk she will not get back to the original quality during the period of lactation. Every one who keeps cows should prepare for dry weather by sow'tLg some crop to be used as green feed, but compara tively few do this and when the dry. weather comes they allow their cows to fall off in milk production and lay it to Providence, when it is entirely oe t't improvidence. Almost every one who keeps cowa grows corn and it is much cheaper to cut the green corn and feed it to the cows than ii is to eove the corn and lose tho milk. Cows that are given a few stalks of greou corn and a light feed of bran or shorts will maintain their flow of milk inthe'dryest weather, provided they have a plentiful supply of pure water to drink.

Divide the pears in halve?, remova the cores and stems and steam them until tender; then pat theia in a bak ing dish, pat a little preserved ginger into each pear, add a little lemon jaica and sugar, and cover the top with a meringue made of the beateu hite of three eggs aud three tablespoonfals of powdered sugar. Bako in a quick oven until a light brown. Chorotntn Gingerbread. Mix in a large bowl one cupfal of mo lasses, half a capfal of 'sour milk or cream, one teaspoonfui of ginger; one of cinnamon, half a teaspoonfulof salt. Dissolve ohe teaspoonfui of soda in a teaspcfonfal of cold water; add thia and two- tabtefipoonfais of melted butter to the mixture. Now stir in twocupfals of sifted flour, and finally add two ounces of good powdered chookite and one tablespoonful of butter, melted together. Pour the mixture into three veil buttered deep tin plates, and bake in a moderately hot oven for about tweur minutes. Koillnsr Starch. "More siarehirrg is a failure from the starch being half cooked thau from any other cause," said a capable housewife who was complimented ou the perfection of the starched goods that came up from her laundry. "I make it a rule to havo the starch boiled steadily an hour before it s .strained. After this some of it t thinned to tho proper condition f6r dresses, shirt waists and other p'eises that require light starchiup." Starch that is not boiled enough will 'tick to the iron. If starch is not strained there will be uneven places m it. - It is very little trouble to bed starch. It needs to be stirret a few times after it begins to' boil. Stretch triangular bag across a j id and pou the starch, through it. tt will nearly all soon drip through, cad it require very little squeezing to press the6re mainder through. There is always r?onie starch left in the strainer that cauuot be used. It saxes time to skim off the film that gathers over starch that has been boiled tor a considerable length of time. without the side-boards, which are easily put ou when required. It is merely a platform nailed to 2s4's, which, are bolted securely, to a frame made of 2x6 plank which fits inside the standards that hold the wagon box in place. There are holes cut through the platform to let the tops of theso standards through. The platform sets just high enough to bo free of the wheels. It can be made seven fret wide if that width is de sired. The Epitomist. Halter Breaklii!; f.'oSJ. Every colt should be taught to load with a baiter while still with the dam. There is less difficulty at this early nge than later, and aiso less liability to having the animal injured in its struggles to get free. The first thing io do is to make a strong- head hiHer that can be let out or taken with buckles so as to exactly fit ike Leau. Put on the head halter at last, with out any hitching strap, an J leave the colt all day to become used to it, tak ing on" the halter ut night. When tho bitching strap is attached it should be held firmly, for if the coll finds that it can escape, it will bo slow to un learn the habit. It is we'll at first to lead the colt and its dam side by tdde. When ho learns to-stand by a hitch .ing post without trying to pull away the breaking to lead may be consid ered complete. It takes very little time when this breaking to the halter is made while the colt is younjr. The handling that this requires is the first lesson to the animal that it is to be man's servant. If this is early im pressed the breaking to harness ii made much less difficult. Keep the Nut Tight. There is probably nothing more es sential in the running of farm machin ery thau keeping tho- nuts perfectly tight. If one becomes Icrse, the im plement may be ruined in a short time. No machine can do gcod "work if the closely fitting parts are allowed to become !oo?e. It is astonishing how soon they will commence to wear themselves out of thane an 1 how scou the machice will become unfitted for use. I have on my farm an old rear cut mowing machine which has been in use for twenty-one years. I never get off the machine to oil it without exam ining!every nut. and if any cf them are loose I tighten them. 1 mow over foaje very rough ground, but" in spite cf this and because of gcod care the machine is iu working condition to ay. The tame principle holds j-ood Not aud Apple Salads. A salad suttaoie lor tne season is made of nuts, apples and celery. Cut the apples in thiu slices, shell and boil tho. chestnuts fifteen minutes, or until soft: drain, aud when cool cut the chestnuts and celery in slices. Moisten with a part of the dressing and put iu a sa'ad bowl, with the remainder of the dressing on top. Garnish with celery tips. The dressing is made by creaming one-fourth of ar cupful of but ter, sccsoning it with one-half tea spoonful of mustard and one salt- spoonful of paprika. Add the beaten .volks of two eggs and one-fourth of a cupful of vinegar, which must be hot. Cook this over boiling water until very thick, stirring often. Whin one-half pint of cream and add it to tho cold dressing just before serving. A chicken and walnut sala'l is made by adding to au ordinary .aalad a couple of dozen English wrinuts which have been parboiled and skinned. In boil ing the nuts alije of onion, a sprig of parsley and a little of' the chicken liquor rdiould.be added to the water. When tho skins have been removed add the nuts to the chicken salad, gar nish with celery and cover with mayon naise dressing. SEVENTY.SIX CITIES AND VILLAGES WHERE PUPILS PRACTICE THRIFT.

Tho school savings bank is a very simple affair. A register, size about three by rive inches, for the teacher. With " a pago tor each depositor aud cards in envelopes for pupils, make the outfit. The pages of the register and cards are of the same size and are checked alike, giving a space for a deposit for every Monday in each month. The administration is equally simple. At tho begiuning of the school once a week, usually Mouday morning, the teacher takes the regis ter, ono page of which is for each pupil, and calls the roll. Any boy or girl desiring to make a deposit steps forward and places hi.3 or her "money and card in the bauds of the teacher, who inscribes ou the register aud on the card tho amount deposited. At the end of each month tho money col lected in school is transferred to the mutual raviuga banks or to the post olilco savings bauks (whero such ex ist). Each pupil receives credit for his cr hei- savings for the month, if amounting to twenty-five cents or multiplier, thereof, fractions being added to -the next month's account in the register and ou the cards. Each pupil receives a passbook of the mutual or posta! savings bank with a credit tor a nest egg. Captain Pratt, Superintendent of the Government Iudiau Industrial School at Carlisle, Peun., was the first to adopt the school saviugs bank sys tem in tho United State?. The In dian boys and girls made their first deposits in October, 1870. In June, 1831, seventy pupils had to their credit iu tho Carlisle savings bank $800, money saved from a small allowance or extra daily work. In a letter dated January 14, 188S, Captain Pratt says: "The depositors at this time among the hot s number 203 and their total sum deposited amounts to $2285.33. It would have been above $1000 bat for the fact that during the last nine months they have given $1800 to help pay for their own dormitory erected this year. Our girls who are deposit ors number 135, and their savings amount to $83675. This savings sys tem rs a supremely invaluable factor in our school work." In the captain's annual report for demeanor. .

It does not have to wait for the market to advance. It is not subject to speculation of the bulls aud bears ou tho board of trade. It is a load that gails aud frets and chafes.
