; Is it December again? Yesterday
[ morning at 10:30 -we had a full sized
I snow and gardeners about the city
| stopped and gazed skyward hardly
believing they saw correctly, a namber
of buds about tacked small heads
back :n again. Hens in renovated
chicken houses stopped clucking vociferously
and postponed domestic
plans. One fine wbit? Orpington in
my neighborhood got oft her nest of
I em and refused to go back. There
| waen't any use in tryins to hatch
! chickens if it hud gone hack to snowI
ing again.
A number of people who discarded
1 warm clothing were glad to get back
to it again, it was a big temptation
after a long, cold winter, to pretend
summer had arrived at last. But aJl
'.he straw hats, low shoes and lack
of coats can't make a summer. Nature
lakes her own sweet time, and until
she has all the chill cut of ber system
we'll find just such unexpected happenings

Yesterday was so windy that one

about it. Why do we now speak of

man here made a speech and remarked:
"Two weeks after the war. Germany

to defeat a country whose traits we
are considering copying? Don't we
yet believe in a government for the
people and by the people or are w-e
coming to believe that the masses as
a whole hare so little intelligence that
all questions of importance must he
decided tor them? That's what Germany
believes- If we think Germany
does a few tilings better than we do?
no doubt she would be glad to come
over here and show os how to do
them. As long as the war lasts anyway,
it might not he a bad idea to keep
quiet. A certain verse runs as follows:
"A wise old owiiiTed in an oak.

I can't help thinking. little book,
that I. too. hare been quite as great j
a disappointment to Dick as he has
been to me.
Sometimes. I have thought lately;
j that bad 1 been Dick 1 would have j

against the whole world and ye??
j Yes, little book, there i? always
i a "yet." I did love Dick with my
i whole heart. I trusted Uiru as l did
j niy God. My faith in him was as
j firm as the everlasting rack. I en:
(lowed him "with all the virtues my!
i mind coultl conceive and tny heart
desire" and then 1 awoke to find he
! was just a very human man.
Little book. I think 1 hare asked
i you this before. 1 know I hare asked j
: it of myself a thousand times. Why (
; bus the Great Power that has the fas-j
; hioning of our souls been so cruel asi
to endow us with a capacity to con- j
j" ceive an idea that -wo can never hope |
J to attain? No man or woman canj
j reach in fact the height which apj
pears Just beyond in the d reams that
come to all humanity.
That, is the great sorrow, the great
tragr-dv of all the world.
I?Margie Warerly?have dreamed
I or a love that I have never ooon ame
! to inspire?in fact. I myself have nev
er felt that great one-power, all cm|
bracing love that I wish weio mine,
i I believe if I could have had it, it
{ would have been joy enough. There
would be in a love so much o fbliss
; that even though this love was not
returned in the measure it was given.
' yet the fact that one wav big enough
; i ? have this great emotion in all its
i ideality, would suffice.
I was thinking ail this when 1 saw
j Dick coming back 'across the lawn'
hoards at certain railway stations near '
1 the western fronL
I spent a pleasant afternoon at the j
1 Fleming Greenhouse yesterday after-,
i noon and w&? impressed with the fact
| that with so many .beautiful flowers j
i growing directly in the city, we need 1
| not travel out o? the city for what we |'
' need. Whatever we can grow here? ;
ia any line?is bound to be fresher ;
' and more valuable on that account. '
Mr. I.eaman also has a well equipped :
greenhouse ? with all manner of :
flowers just ready to bloom for Easter.
The Fleming Creenhouse is located ;
at Seventh street and Locust avenue
though very soon the new street run- ;
aing from Oakwood road to Tenth j]
street to Field street will be paved
and put in good condition. Mr. Flem- '
ins has moved back fifty-six feet This j
new road will be directly in front of j
Mr. Fleming's greenhouse.
Flowers here are just at the stage i
to bloom' profusely for Easter. Hya- <
clnths in cream, pink, old rose, purple i
and white stand in pots. Tulips in all
colors grow charmingly now after a j
long winter in the ground. The bulbs ]
were put outside under ground the ;
first of December and covered with t
a layer of straw and then of soil to t
keep them from freezing. i
Charles Wilson raised some tobacco i
last season in his own garden and has
it hanging at the greenhouse for use in
destroying bugs about the Dowers.

I was quite surprised t<? see how
terribly Mr. Trent had chacked in the
last few months.
I had cot seen bin tor a Tons Hec
and. little book. I was shocked at
his shrunken form and his gray face, j
I was thinking so intently about |
this that I was still lying on the sofa j
in the sun room when Dick and Mr. J
Trent came into the library and he- i
fore I could make myself known Mr. j
Trent said abruptly to Dick:
"Mr boy. I am going to confide In j
you the most momentous secret of i
tv.v T if** an li lif.fY?ra T fin tr t want to t .
ask von to look oa my confidences i
as those of a doootned man."
I heard icl; interrupt in a sliockeel :

"I have been il! for a Ion? time ana

Dick. j,

I discovered something about ferns
?the prettiest house plant and the

often notices runners growing from J
the fern and usually pulls them off1

It ie on this runner that the new fern j
