Same handsome little volumes from
the "Little Print Shop" aft Fargo, but
none handsomer that Edward S. Pet
erson's "God's Love Letters," being a
collection of poems, for the most part
dediealted to and descriptive ot the
wild flowers of North Dakota. The
collection numbers some musical and
feeling tributes to the flowers, whose
spirit the author seems righltly to
have interpreted. Typographically,
the volumes are exquisite in taste, il
lustrated with some handsome water
color plates, and artistic in arrange
ment throughout. There are three
styles of the book, an edition de luxe
being printed with numerous hand
some illustrations. Peterson's col
lection of poems has been well re

some very flattering reviews have
been written of it. It may be ob

THE VARIED RESULTS OF REARRANG

Mr*. Blank's Mania For Changing
the' Appearance of the Rooms
Brought Trouble to the Male Con

the course of a heart to heart talk.
"Do I? Why, yes, indeed! I don't

"Well, I usually change the orna
ments around and so forth, but in the
spring and fall I" like to change every
thing in a room—completely alter the
whole appearance of it. Then I fancy
the things are all new, and they seem
to look prettier somehow. But, do you
know, my husband doesn't like it at
"Neither does mine! Isn't that singu
lar? Men are so peculiar!"
"Yes, indeed tbey are!"
So many housekeepers share the
views of these two that a story with
amoral will not be out of place.
It was the other night only that Mr.
Blank went unsuspiciously up stairs to
bed at an unusually early hour, leaving
his wife reading in the sitting room.
He had a headache and carried a gob
let of water in his right hand. Fear
lessly advancing into the dark bed
room Mr. Blank suddenly felt both legs
violently cut from under him. 'He
clutched wildly at the air and said
several things of an exclamatory na
ture, but there was nothing to save
him. He went down.
"Good gracious, Henry!" ejaculated
Mrs. Blank, hurrying to the scene of
disaster. "What is the matter?
Where are you? Why don't you light
the gas?" Suiting the action to the
word, she beheld her husband sprawl

carried had discharged its contents
across the pillowshams and shivered on
Mr. Blank did the talking for the
next ten minutes. He said that of all
the blankety blank folly of which the
mind could conceive this of changing
furniture around was the worst. He
said it was a pretty thing for a man to
walk into his own room and have to
fall over things in the dark. He said
he wouldn't stand it the, furniture
must be replaced where it formerly
It was the next evening that Master
Blank undertook to carry a pile of
schoolbooks from the dining room to
the sitting room. He had a bottle of
ink in his hand, and he thought he
knew exactly where the center table
was. In the course of his peregrina
tions in search of it, however, he came
into violent collision with' the glass
door of the bookcase, which he broke.
There were also inky traces discernible
on the carpet when Mrs. Blank came
in. This time there was some balm for
her feelings. She conld spank Master
Blank and did it with the best will In
Her own downfall was not long in
coming, however, although for a few
days only minor Inconveniences were
met with, such as the abrasion of an
kles against chair rockers and slight
bruises received by means of sudden
contact with unforeseen obstacles. Last
evening Mrs. Blank undertook to trans
fer the cage of her pet parrot from the
window where it spends the day to the
snug corner where it passes the night
She did not trouble to light the gas, and
by some unaccountable mental lapse
she had forgotten the precise point at
which a tabouret, on which stood a jar
diniere, was stationed. She charged
into the tabouret with considerable
force, was overbalanced by the weight
of the cage in her arms and took a
header with & resounding crash. The
parrot shrieked, and, unable to distin
guish friend from foe, inflicted a severe
bite on her mistress' finger. Mr. Blank
came in hurriedly, picked up his wife
and assisted in making an Inventory of
sundry contusions. Then they lifted
the parrot cage badly bent, and the
jardiniere with a. piece chipped out of
ft and the tabouret somewhat scratch
ed, and then Mr. Blank observed quiet-
"I have just one tbing to ask you.
Mm* Blank. Was I right?'
"No, you were notP' retorted Mrs.
Blank navagely. "SerlouB accident?

she did.—Philadelphia Record.

A CORDIAL RECEPTION.
The Book Agent Got One That
Wnsn't Intended I^or Him.
There is a farmer living just north
of Evanston and a book agent some
where in the cosmopolitan desert of
Chicago each of whom feels that he is
a victim of a cruel circumstance.
Last week the farmer. bad a note
from a nephew to say that the boy
would visit the farm on Thursday
Uncle and nephew had notlmet for fif
teen years, and the old min drove to
the station in his most uncomfortable
coat that he might welcome his sister's
child. But the young man failed to
arrive. After waiting till the last pas
senger had disappeared the old man
drove away, disappointed.
The book agent entered into the dra
matis persona? early the next morning.
Looking over the top rail of the barn
yard gate, he called, "Hello, uncle!"
The book agent never got such a re
ception before in all his life. The farm
er flung the gate wide open, seized the
agent's hand and pressed a whiskered
kiss on the ironclad cheek:
"Say, this must be heaven," mur
mured the agent, following the farmer
into the house and explaining that ev
erybody at home was as well as could
be* expected. Not till the agent was
full of a boiled dinner and attempted
to sell a book did the farmer begin to
see a dim light Charged with Imper
sonating the missing nephew, the
agent explained that he greeted all
elderly strangers as "uncle that he
even had a few almost real ones in
South Clark street in Chicago.
When last seen by the farmer, the
agent was still running, a#d wben the
real nephew does come he may find an
electric current in the latchstring.—
The Best Man.
For the origin of "the best man at a
wedding" we must go back many cen
turies, to days when it was the amia
ble practice of the budding bridegroom
to dijppense with the consent either of
the lady or her father. He simply
waited for-a suitable opportunity to
capture her and make a bolt with his
bride. In this jnterprife be found it
helpful to have the services of a friend
who would assist him in the capture
and keep the pursue^ at bay until he
had got a sufficiently! long etart' This
friend was the prototype of the -"btiwt

ONE MAN'S LUCK.
Steered Into a Junior Partnership
by a Chance Gnat of Wind.
"Speaking of taking in partners,"
said a downtown business man, "our
junior was, you might say, blown in on
us, and I saw him started in our di
rection, though I had no idea of it at
"Going down town one summer morn
ing on a Ninth avenue elevated train
I saw sitting opposite to me a young
man who caught my fancy, a substan
tial, earnest, straightforward looking
chap, whose looks I liked first rate. He
was reading a paper, and presently he
tore off from his paper an advertise
ment leaf that he didn't want and
threw it out of a window or tried to,
for as a matter of fact it didn't go out.
A gust of wind with just the right
twist to it came along at just that mo
ment and blew the paper back, to fall
on a vacant seat next to him.
"And as it fell something in it caught
his eye, and he picked up that part
which he had just been trying to throw
away and began earnestly to read it
and ended up by folding it carefully
and putting it in his pocket
"About four minutes after I'd .got in
here that morning this same young
man walks in and applies f[or a place
that we had been waiting for some
body to fill. Our advertisement for a
man for it was in that paper which 1
had seen this young man try to throw
away, and which a gust of wind, by
one chance in a million or more, had
blown back upon him and in such a
manner as to fix his attention.
"As a matter of fact I hadn't liked
the young man's act of throwing the
paper out of an elevated car window?
A paper floating down and around as
that would do might frighten horses
and lead to no end of trouble and lots
of damage, but no one man thinks
about everything, and he'd learn better
about this, I knew, and so as a matter
of fact I took this young man on the
spot on my first impressions of him.
He far more than made good and in
due course of time he came into his
junior partnership, literally and truly
