The legend of tho discovery of maple syrup Is n curious one, nnd one of na tional inii'ortaiice to those of us who ute real Americans, for it was one eif nur native Indlnn chief who made this Il coveiy, according to the legend. This chief Instit'clel his squaw to rook a piece of vcnslon for his sole enjoyment on hi letutn from the cho. lter pul ling the meat tn cook, !n nnt"r obtulned by melting snoe he squaw beiiime so absorbed in making a pair of moccasins for her huslanrt that she let, the meat bin n, ns manv more civilized housewives h.v e einne ,enee Also, like the modern housewife, she wns reads to meet the emergency. As thorn was no time to melt snow aitaln s.e bethought herself ef the water mining from tho maple tree behind the wluvvam. This she poured 111 with the meat. The hunter was do. laved In Ills coining so that when lie r' tiirui'd there was nothing but u sticky meB In the bottom of the pot. 1'i.aiinii a storm, tb guilt) t-qimw hid when sho lienril her husband coming, but hrmlng no iiithurst .he ventured forth and fennel the lusty chief utterly oblivious to every thing about hhn e.xcepl Iho pot, which ho held between his knees, eating the contents with the utmost deiivht, mid licking his fingers with gusto. This wus the fust dii.li of m.iplo syrup served nnd was n fortunate discovery for our foicfathers, for hitory tells us that ns far buck as 1730 tho tlrst maple syrup and sugar wcrn made In Vermont, nnd for manv years her output was nearly one-thhel of what was maelo In the conn try. In the olden times maple siigur m.ik ing was nut only a picnic where many a lovo mnteh began, but It was a most necfsnr.v function, for maple sugar wns tlie only kind of sweet known lo tho rank uud Pie.

Several witnesses were on tho stand' In HinninRtoti county court I'rldny In the case of State vs. John Doyle and Kugeno SargoiKl charged with poisoning Robert Hlaii's colts anil attempting to poison Mr. anil Mrs. Sanfoid Dicks. Mrs. Hicks told of Sargooel coming to her house just be fore the two colts were poisoned nnd get ting a pan of water from tho pump. White powder was found In the bottom of the pan nnd the same on the pump. Hicks corroborated his wife's testimony. Dr. M. J. Wlllse of the State laboratory, Hur- Huston, told of finding poison In tlie colts and horse and that he also found hyclratlc potash In a cup sent him I'rank Taylor and l.ouis Prek, New Yorl: detectives, weic also on the stand.

Sargood wanted to get a third class liquor license which Mr. nnd Mrs. Hicks were given and this caused the trouble. PROSPKRITY FOR ISLAND POND.

TDK INTKUFKIUNi"; lil'SDAND I would like to say a word or two jitmut the husband who goes beyond his sphere, many married women will know him but ton well, he may be called "Tlie Into fee ing Husband." the one who will poke hi" nie-e Into household and domestic nutteis which In no way concern him. He Is a kin I of general walking -ncyelo-pi.dla oil nil matters connected with housework: he thinks nothing of Instrui -Ing ids wife as to how she should perforin her elulles. and, nln he frequently goc Hie length of lecturing the "Keneral" mi the most trivial points of housewifery No true wife care's for a husband gning about the kitchen: in fact, it is a kuni y hunting ground for tin Inierfer of happy leg husband. lie drops in of nn afternoon why on " irth I-' the' floor not sciubbe.l yet" He de mands an explanation, and I told that the "Missus" said it wasn't to lie scrubbed that day. Tlds won't do for tlie interfering man, however: he hunts: out his wife and In forms her that the kitchen looks like an old clothes shop; can sho not keep his house In a cleanly state? is bc to pay for u servant standing about lining nothing vvli' n she might be well employed scrub bing lloor, and so he goes on. Such a man is more than a nuisance: be is an inllictlon, and the household over which he presides Is rarely a happy one: it cannot lie when the man goes on like thi-. Hut the same Individual won't only med dle with household affairs, he will also dictate concerning the children and thW no true mother will tolerate. Suppose the month of May comes In. and Is raw uud cold huvo the children stopped wearing their winter flannels? No? Well, they must do so at once so orders the In tertenng husband, hoedlers of the fact that the mother otnjlit ti be flic h,.st judge ns lo when the child! en should put off or on certnln articles of clothing: and thus ho dictates, always Interfering with the wile's duties. Naturally, trouble Is ever to the foie; It could mil bo otherwise. Suppose siaji q msm gives his wife n certain sum tnontlily ns .1 private allowance, whv. it in't pri vate at nil: she really has to account for every penny spent, and a woman of spirit will not meekly slnnd this sort of thing long open rupture almost follows ns p matter of course.
