MONEY MADE II UYE STOCK
IR CENTRAL CARADA. W. J. Henderson, risking Seattle write* the Canadian Government Agent at Spokane. Wash., and says: “1 have neighbors in Central Canada raising Wheat, barley and oata for the past 10 years, and are now getting I from the same land 20 to 30 bushels of wheat per acre. 40 to 60 bushels of eats. "It was the first week of May when 1 got my tent pitched, but the farmers all around had finished putting in their crops, so I only got fifteen seres broke and seeded. They advised ms as it was late not to put in much wheat, so I put in five acies of wheat and ten acres oais, one-half acr# pota toes and vegetables. All kinds of veg etables grow well up there, sweet corn, tomatoes, onions, carrots, peas, beans, cabbage. My wheat yielded about 20 bushels per acre, for which I got 70 cents, others got 80 cents; oats threshed 35 busbHs per acre, for which I got 35 cents per bushel. You see 1 was three weeks late in getting them in. still I was satisfied. "Prom my observation, there is mors money made »n stock, such as cattle, horses and sheep, as prices are high for such, and it costs nothing to raise them, as horses live the year around out on the grass In fact, farmers turn their work horses out for the winter, and they come in fresh and fat In the spring. Cattle live out seven or eight months. They mow the prairie grass and stack It for winter and give oat straw. My neighbors sold steers at 140 each, and any kind of a horse ] that can plow, from $150 00 up. I raised 60 chickens and 5 pigs, as pork, chick ens, butter and eggs pay well and al ways a good market for anything a man raises, so I have every reason to be thankful, besides, at the end of three years l get nty patent for home stead. I heard of no homestead sell big for less than $2,000, so where un der the sun could an old man or young man do better?’* YOUTHFUL MIND AT WORK.

Miss Marjorie, aged five year*, it one of those bright children wno make the lives of their parents and teach •rs a burden Quite recently she paid her first visit to a kindergarten Upon her return home she grew enthusl aatlc. begging her mother to allow her to attend the school regularly. “It wag so very nice!" she declared oweetly. "And the teacher. Miss Lee. la ao very nice too! She told me If 1 was a good little girl I would grow up Into a pretty lady, but If I waa caught/ I would grow up an ugly one!" “That fa quite true, dear." her moth er answered with a smile. Silently Miss Marjorie regarded tha Are of pine logs. Presently she burst out: “Then what a naughty, naughty little girl Miss Lee must have been.” —The Bohemian. Easy Come, Easy Go.

Jt is only a simple question of trying It tor oneself in order to know the Joy of leturning health as realized by an Ills, young lady.

Dress Accessory of Which Seemingly There Cannot Be Too Many. There is no diminution in the popu larity of the bar pin. It Is used for collars, for the stock and for jabots. Every girl needs as many as she can get. She wants them in sets of col ored stones to match the color scheme of her various costumes, and Bhe wants them lu different sizes for different uses. As far as the fashions go, she can not have too many. Therefore, the manufacturers are bringing them out anew in all kinds of lovely shapes and settings. The horseshoe has been run to the ground and few of the new ones are in this shape. Lovely as the bowknot was it did not become widely popular in semi-precious stones. The straight bar has always been an excellent in vestment, especially In three sizes. The new bar pin used to catch the lower edges of the turnover collar and the jabot under it is in the shape of a new moon. The crescent is slight in its curves, it is not wide even at the center, its ends are sharp. PRETTY THEATER WAIST.

A Simple Quest Room. The very simplest guest room that any one could imagine! The floor had on it a gray rag carpet. The walls were covered with a plain gray paper, and a black moulding Joined them to the ceiling. The narrow, old-fashioned woodwork of window and door sills made streaks of black, In keeping with the molding above. The hang ings were gray Japanese crepe. “Many tones of quiet grays,” ns said the poet; hut they served to throw Into relief mid bits of blue and yellow Moorish pottery and a row of blue books. The books were the point of the whole gray scheme of things, for the hostess had covered them all In blue Holland linen and had titled the backs ou small yellow pasters. DAILY BATH FOR CLEANLINESS. Weekly Ablution of Our Ancestors No Longer Suffice*. There is many a man or woman who would be horrified to be told that be or Bhe falls short of cleanli ness, yet such is the cuse even when one prides herself on personal dain tiness. ^ ou cannot be clean if you do not take at least one bath each day. If that seems like a harsh judgment try going for two days without a bath, then wipe off the akin with cold cream. The condition of that cloth la an unpleasant revelation. The dally bath need not be In a tub, but It should bo more than the Hrltlsh cold sponge that with many does duty for cleanliness. Cold water, no matter how Invigorating, does not remove soil. A bath to be cleansing should con sist of plenty of hot water—soft. If possible—a pure soap and a scrubbing brush, and plenty of friction in dry ing. Cold water may be u-ed lator as a spray or tonic, but the warm bath Is essential. It Is doubly necessary, If one lives in cities, that care Is paid to bathing 'I ho grime of the big town Is not only disfiguring, it Is germ-laden, and every effort should be made to keep free of 1L In addition to the daily bath one should be particular to wash the face, ears and neck, and under the arms each time she dresses. The hands, as most of us know to our sorrow, need scrubbing a dozen times a day. It Is folly, as Is so often done, to point to our ancestors’ weekly bath and superb strength. Times have changed and so have ideals of clean liness, and the person who takes two baths a week these days is aahamed to have It found out. Rose Color for Children. One of the new quaint tom s In pink which Is almost rose colored, is a fa vorlte for children's clothes. Coats and hats are made of it for street wear, and little slips for older girls are built of It In silk, cashmere, chif fon, messaline and oiher new fabrics. The coats of old rose t\re made of supple broadcloth, cut quite severefy with large pockets and long sleeves edged with fur. There Is also a turnover collar of this fur, which may be ermine, beaver dyed squirrel or chinchilla. With Btich a coat goes a broad brimmed sailor or soft roso beaver trimmed with a hand of the fur around the crown, with a bead of the sdIttisl, In front. To Protect the Fingers. Pretty nearly everybody Is making or learning to make Irish crochet lace so that any information on this Inter estlng subject Is usually received with Joy. The Inexperienced finds that the sharp end of the crochet needle pricks their flng-rs and that they, for this reason, cannot keep up the work very long at a time. The beet way to over come this difficulty Is to wear a tiny piece of courtpiaster over the tip of the finger where the needle touches rt will not Interfere with 1he gublar.co of the needle, as a thimble might do, j hut It will prevent the finger from be coming sore and will protect it from the possibility of callousness. LIKE “EASY MONEY” AMATEUR BEGGAR’S HARD LU<^K STOPV WON. But Perhaps tf He Really Had Bean Hungry His Nerve Would Have Failed Him at the Critical Stage. After turning down an uncouth look ing stranger who expressed his desire for the price of a meal, John A. Thompson continued thoughtfully on his way. "Must be embarrassing to ask a man for a dime and get turned down, * mused John.' "That poor fellow didii t know how to put up u plausible story. 'TisiTt so easy, uiebby. Like us uot i couldn't do any better.” These thoughts led to still mor* thoughts end the first thing Johu knew he had determined to find out if h* could tell a hurd luck story thut would get the money. Slowly and with measured stride. h» •trolled eu down Superior avenue. He had decided to watch und prey, and keep on watchiug until he sighted bis prey. By and by, a well-dressed mao. va lise in band, whom John felt sate was a total stranger to niiu, came walking briskly along. John Thompson stopped him.* “You doubtless have .lust finished a hotel dinner,” began John. ”1 urn hungry. Were you ever hungry?” "1 don't care to he cross examined.” returned the stranger tartly. John winced slightly. Could the stranger know that lie made his living cross examining people? Hut he took hold of the man's lapel and renewed his line of talk. "I’ve got to have a piece of money, I toll you,” he Raid with vehemence. ‘Tui hungry. You wouldn’t stop to argue if you’d ever been real hungry. Possibly you’ve beet) reared in tho lap of luxury and don’t realize how gray the sky line looks when you haven’t even the price of a sandwich in your pocket.” "You seem like an Intelligent fel lew,” remarked John’s victim, sizing him up, curiously. “You shouldn't have to go hungry. There is work for all In this world.” "You are complimentary.” returned John, "but It does not alleviate iry craving for food. My stomach has been almost emirely depleted for 24 hours. Have you no sympathy? Is there no feeling of humanity in your soul?” "Your clothes are good tailor-made garments. I take it. You shouldn’t he without funds. You’ve seen better days.” ’You’re evading tho Issue,” sighed John, Radiy; "the fact remains that I urn hungry, almost to the point of starvation. If you arc unwilling to aid a poor, needy person like me, say so and—” ' "Oh, well, tr.ke this,” cut In the stranger, dropping a quarter Into Thompson’s hand. ‘I didn’t say I wouldu’t help you. I am simply In terested In Boe'oloey and wondered why n man. evidently of Borne intelli gence, should—" John was smiling whimsically as he replaced tho quarter in the hand of his benefactor. "I Just wanted to see if I could do It,” he explained. Then drawing n crisp new flve-dollar hill from his vest pocket, he added; “Walk on over across the street with me and have n idgar or something.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer Dreim of Grouchy Man.
