Max, a big black Newfoundland dog,
who belonged to a laborer named
Jake used to work in the fields for
a farmer, and his kind employer al
ways gave him a pitcher of coffee for
lunch every day. After Jake finished
his meal, he gave the pitcher to Max,
and back the dog would run as fast
as he could and carry the empty Jug
right into the kitchen to cook.
As Jake drove a cart, he had trained
Max to open and close the gates tor
him. The dog would lift the latch
with his nose, push the gate with his
forefeet and walk on his hind feet. Af
ter the cart had passed through, Max
would follow and shut and latch the
gate In the same way.
Max was almost as good as a serv
ant to his master, for he could always
find lost articles, and ran to get any
thing left behind. Sometimes, to test
Max, Jake would hide his hat or coat
in a very Becret place. But all that
was necessary was to say, "Hi, Max,
go back for my hat," and, no matter
how safely it was hidden, the dog al
ways found it.
Max had many other cute tricks,
such as sitting up, begging for apples,
shaking hands and even smoking a
Simple Picture Frame.
First take a piece of cardboard 6
inches loi. and 4 Inches wide, one
piece of colored paper the same size,
and another piece 7 Inches long and 5

the cardboard, turning the edges over
on the back and in the center cut a
hole the size and shape that you wish.
A heart or a circle Is the most desir
able to fit a picture in. Then paste
the smaller piece of paper over the
back of the frame, leaving a slit at
the top, through which to slip the pic

The Pancake Woman.

History of Our Cent
The cent was first proposed by ou
own Robert Morris, the great flnanclet
of the revolution, and was named by
Jefferson two years after. It began
to make Us appearance from the mint
in 1792. It bore the head of Washing
ton on one side, and thirteen links on
the other. The French revolution
soon created ft rage for French ideas
in America, rhlch put on the cent-
instead of the head of the Goddess of
Liberty a French liberty, with neck
thrust forward and flowing locks. The
chain on the reverie side waa dis
placed by the olive wreath of peace,
but the French liberty was shortlived,
and so was the portrait on our cent

To Make a Memorandum Book.
To make a memorandum book take
two pieces of cardboard 5H by 3
inches. Then cut two pieces of gray
drawing paper 8 by 6 Inches, and
paste them on the cardboard. Cut off
the corners o that they will look like
the covers -f a book. Take a piece
of lintu (so color) 4 inches long and
3 Inches wlae and paste the covers
together with it, leaving inch at
the ends. Then take another piece of
linen Vi inch shorter and paste inside
the other, turning over and pasting
down the ends. Cut a piece of the
linen large enough to put a pencil
through when pasted, and paste it on
the Inside of the cover 1 inch from the
outer edge. Make a book of any kind
of writing paper and paste it in the
cover. When neatly made it will be
a very nice memorandum book.
Deception -In Insects.--
In a certain magazine some curious
stories of the deception to which in
sects resort are told. J. It says:
"Queerer still than the caterpillars
which- pretend to be leaves or flowers,
for the sake of protection, are those
perfidious Brazilian spiders, which are
brilliantly colored with crimson and
purple; but 'double themselves up at
the base of leaf-stalks, so as to resem
ble flower-buds, and by this means
deceive the insects upon which they
"An Indian mantis, or preying in
sect, a little less wicked, though no
less cruel than the spiders, deceives
the flies who come to his -irm under
the false pretense of being a quiet
leaf, upon which they may light in
safety for est and refreshment
"Yet another abandoned member of
the same family, relying bodily upon
the resources of tropical nature, gets
Itself up as a complete orchid, - the
head and fangs being molded in the
exact image of the beautiful blossom,
and the arms folding treacherously
around the unhappy Insect which ven
tures to seek for honey in its decep
tive jaws."
Paper Tree.
Many girls enjoy making paper dolls'
houses out of boxes, and we will tell
you how to make cunning trees, to
have your house in a nice shady grove.

Fold In two, lengthwise, a piece of
green paper about four Inches wide
and fourteen Inches long. Cut this
paper very regularly through the fold

paper comb.
Then roll the band between the
thumb and finger as in figure 2 until
the cut paper forms a large mass.
When It is as tight as it will go, fasten
together the tube part with a little
paste, and make the paper puff out by
runntng the finger between each Btrlp

end of a flat mustard cork in which
a hole has been cut, or you can use a

Be, Jolly. and Laugh.
If boysfand, ''girls knew what a
weapon a Jolty laugh was they would
cultivate one. It really doesn't pay
to lose one's temper to or to be cross.
Every one likes a cheerful person and
bad humor files before a smile. A
grouchy man will save ' his scolding
from the cheerful office boy who tends
to business and the smiling girl has
the- advantage of the scowling per
son. So cultivate the smile and prac
tice the art of cheerfulness.
The Century Plant
There is a widespread belief that
the so-called century plant got that
name from the fact that it blooms
only once in a hundred years. The
belief is erroneous, tor in tropical
countries the 'ant matures in about
tea years, when it bears a crows of
greenish-yellow flowers, which test
two or three months. The plant then
dies down to the root but new shoots
come up and thus the plant Uvea on.
The hundred-year notion grew out of
the long time it takes the plant to ma
ture in colder latitudes, sometimes a
period of seventy years. A liberal
construction of the conditions, there
fore, would warrant the use of the
name "century," for, in the growth of
a plant seventy years seem a hundred-
Making Flute.
A little flute from which a good
deal of amusement may be derived
can be made by wrapping a piece of
paper around a pencil to make a tube.

of the tube fasten a triangular piece
of paper somewhat larger than the
opening, as shown in the illustration.

It Will Not Burn.
Who ever heard of muslin's not
burning when it is brought into con
tact with fire? Every one knows that
muslin is the very easiest cloth to
burn, and yet under certain circum
stances you can put a piece of muslin
right on top of a bed of live coals
without its being even scorched. It
is an interesting phenomenon and we
advise you all to try it.
Just take a piece of metal which
has been highly polished copper, for
instance and bind the piece of mus
lin around it as tightly as possible.
Tou can now place it on coals at white
heat and blow them to keep them
aglow. Still the muslin will not burn.
The reason for this seemingly remark
able fact is that copper is a good con
ductor of heat, and all the heat from
the coals passes directly Into the cop
per, leaving the muslin uninjured.
Respect the Burden.
Once when Napoleon was coming
down a steep and narrow path on the
slopes of St. Helena, his island pris
on. In company with a party of ladles,
they encountered a heavily laden and
laboring pack animal, driven by an
Islander, coming up. There was not
room for both parties to pass at the
same time. One of the ladies laugh
ingly ordered the pack driver to re
move his beast out of the way, but
Napoleon, remarking, "Respect the
burden, madame!" quickly stepped tc
one side to allow the patiently plod
ding animal to pass. The burden, by
whomsoever borne, is to be respected

A Break In the Cable.
When a break In a submarine cable
occurs it is possible for it to be locat
ed so that a vessel may go directly to
the spot and make the necessary re
pairs. That seems a difficult proposi
tion, but really it is quite simple. ... If
only the wire is broken, and not the
insulating covering, an artificial line
is built up on shore, and when that
artificial line absorbs exactly as much
electricity as the cable jes, it is
known that the break u. as far from
shore as the artificial line is long. If,
however, the covering of the wire is
broken, the current will flow freely
from the wire to the water, and the
strength of the current, the power of
the battery being known, will Indicate
the electrical resistance, and hence
the length of the wire to the point of
Putting Eskimo Baby to Bed.
This is the way the Eskimo babv
is put to bed. A cap is made of the
fur of the white hare, which the
mother puts on her baby'a head, and
the baby is put, naked, into a sealskin
bag full of feathers. The mouth of
the bag is drawn close, and the whole
package is put carefully away in some
corner, where it remains till next
morning. Certainly the little creatures
must be very warm in such a cozy
nest but I doubt whether our Ameri
can babies would be as quiet as the

Strapping For Wall. .
In strapping hollow cement blocks
must the wall be plugged, or can
strip be laid in? Could plugs be driv
en in wall with the joints not over
to Inches thick?
The usual way is to build In the
bed joint on inside of wall a three
eighths or half inch by three inch
wide strip of bond timber, allowing
it to project out at least 14 of an inch,
so. that the strapping will not touch
the blocks when being nailed on. The
strips are put in from 20 Inches to 30
inches apart,- according to the height
of the blocks, care being taken to
keep them plumb, and as nearly two
feet apart as the course will allow.
Lay them on blocks dry, and bed the
next course on top of them, as they
will cot jar or pull out when done in
this way, but if bedded in the mortar,
they are liable to be loosened when
nailing to them. Plugging a well for
strapping is all right but more ex
pensive, as the joint has to be drilled
or dug out,' and with the top of the
barrel or sink slightly below the line
of the stream. This receptacle would
serve to catch the water. A pipe
from the bottom of the receptacle,
with a good fall to the house., ought
to carry practically all of the water
which the spring furnishes.
Foundation for House..
I wish to build a foundation under
a house, 26 feet by 20 feet, with a
kitchen 12 feet by 13 feet adjoining.
The concrete Is to be 4 feet to the
level-of the ground with blocks above.
What, width should the. - walls be?
How much gravel and cement would
it require for the four foot wall?
For a wall built of concrete under
a house 20 feet by 26 feet high and
1 foot thick, with kitchen 12 feet
'byr 13 feeti-4 feet ' high and 1 foot
thick, there would be required the
following material: Portland cement.
12H barrels; gravel, 16 yards; stone
fillers, tour - yards; labor. 4 men 3
days, or 12 days in all, building the
stone wall. A wall one foot thick will
be sufficient to carry the size of a
house mentioned, and the concrete
blocks can be laid on wall at any
kivel desired. Concrete for walls Is
usually mixed eight parts gravel tc
one part Portland cement
Mixing Concrete In Cold Weather.
Can concrete be built In cold
weather by putting salt in It to keep it
from freezing the same as is done
with lime and sand?
Some brands of cement will not
stand the use of salt to prevent frost
to any extent without injuring the
strength of same. A better way is
to heat the gravel, either with steam
pipes running through the pile, or with
an old boiler laid on the ground and
covered with the gravel, will heat it.
Then use hot water and by doing the
work In this way It will set very quick
ly, and will not have to be protected
from the frost except covering for
a short time. A little salt used when
mixing would not be objectionable. 1
Lungs and the Atmosphere.
A physician writes of the effect of
London's smoky atmosphere upon the
human lungs: "The coal miner's lung
is black, the lung of the Eskimo is a
pearly white, the lung of the Londoner
is a rich gray. Natural selection
evolves beings adapted to meet all
sorts of natural circumstances among
which a carbon laden atmosphere Is
not Included. Such an atmosphere Is
a product of man's own stupidity and
nature has had no chance of protect
ing him against Its consequences."

prominence is given to the new moss

to sink into an easy chair when you
come in. Just tired enough to enjoy the
prospect of idling for a little while, but
those very times take the life out of
the sort of cloth that tailors sell, and
probably lays fine little creases which
result In incorrigible mussing. It's
rather a temptation, too, to hang It
up and postpone brushing and putting
away properly to a later time, when
you're rested, but it pays to do It
at the time, for dust should be got
