LONDON. The Lord Mayor's procession this year was one of the most picturesque seen in a long time, and
was thoroughly enjoyed by the hundreds of thousands of apectators who lined the route. Prominent in the

built a ftre to smoke the mosquitoes
away, but it did little good. While
we sat there slapping at the rests
there came a sudden dispersing of
them. In a second's time almost there
wasn't one of them in sight. We all
noticed It. Then, darting from side to
side and flying around the camp, came
the dragon flies, six or eight of them,
with their big, shining bodies and
tremulous gauze wings making a pret
tj picture In the afternoon haze.
"An old Indian guide who was in
the, party was the first to point out
the dragon flies and tell us that t?9
mosquitoes had been afraid of them. A
little after the dragon flies had gene
and back came the mosquitoes. Then
after a little the flies cams back, a
dozen of them this time, stretched out
across the plain in line of battle 15
feet apart and each one advancing and
darting from side to side In quick
dashes. Every dash meant a mosquito
killed and eaten, and it was no wonder
that the mosquitoes fled.
"A few years ago the question was
seriously taken up at the Museum of
Natural History and at the Smith
sonian in Washington of whether it
would not pay to breed dragon flies, or
devil's darning needles, as the grand
mothers used to call them, to rid the
country of mosquitoes. The investiga
tions were called off for ome reason
and never pursued.
"I knew a lady out In Cambridge
who breeds a lot of dragon flies in an
aquarium on her back porch every
summer Just to keep the mosquitoes
away. After breeding they hang
around the porch all summer close to
the water, vnere they were hatched,
and she never has to use screens.
While I sat there on the porch nndor

15 drigon flies on the walls or vines
but never a mosquito."

Irish folk music Is a wonderful
treasure house of quaint raelcdy. It
has been due to the indefatigable in

other Chicago Irishmen that much of
the ancient folk music of Ireland has
been rescued from oblivion.
Captain O'Neill's two former books,

from his researches. Another volume
has just been published which is an
outgrowth of his dehings in the music

it "Irish Folk Music." It sets out the
history of the ancient tunes and is
full of interesting and gessipy infor

guests invited to her dance at a Lon"

guests, have been related.
The lady in question, a very well
known London hostess, has suffered
such annoyance at the hands of unin

taking strict precautions to render the

practically impossible.
"Some tim-s ago I had my eyes
opened to this scandalous practice In a
most unpleasant fashion," she said.
"I had occasion to give a dance at
London hotel, to which I invited 23C
guests. I had ry carefully checked
these figures before the dance began,

Copyright, 1910, by Associated Literary Press.-
A month of rain and a month of high
ivinds had kept the LitUe Lonely Girl
a prisoner. Hence, on the first sun
shiny morning in October she sallied
'orth, locking the door of her room,
high up in the tall tenement, with a
3ense of joy and of freedom unknown
to those whose lives are not bounded
by four narrow walls.
The Little Lonely Girl carried a very
small basket and a thumbed paper
backed volume. Over her Jrm hung a
shabby shawl. She stepped lightly.
however, v.s if her lect wanted to fly
over the ground and take her as quick
ly as rjssible from the grimy street
where she lived.
It was ten o'clock when she reached
the goal of her desires. Most people
would have seen nothing attractive in
the stretch of stone sea wall at the
end of a smoke stained city park. But
there was a curve in tho wall which
made a rest for the Little Lonely Girl's
back, and, with the shawl tucked In
for a cushion and her book in her lap,
she could read and watch the ships,
and drink in tho freshness of the
sharp, salt air.
At noon she was ready for her lunch,
and the hard-boiled egg and slice of
bread seemed wholly inadequate to the
demands of her appetite. She ate the
very last crumb, then flung the box
from the top of the wall. With It went
a fine white napkin, which was a left
over from more affluent days. She
craned her neck to look where It fell,
and saw it flutter across the eyes of
a m.-n who lay half .asleep on the
sands below.
He looked up.

there seemed something familiar In
tht long stride.
Therefore she was ready to say de
murely: "Who wouid have thought ot
seeing you here?"
He peered up at her through his
glasses. "Babble," he said, "by all the
fates! Did you drop from the sky?"
, She shook her head. "I was watch
ing the ships from the sea wall."
"Walt till I come up." he said, and
made a quick ascent.
"Now tell me," he communded. He
sat down beside her on the shawl.
The telling was not easy. "I am liv
ing here in the city and earning my liv
ing." "How?" was his quick question.
She evaded him. "And this is the
first clear day for a long time, so I
took a holiday and brought my lunch
and my book, and it's lovely."
In spite of the brave tone, he was
not deceived. Ills keen eyes had noted
the. shabby black shoe tucked under
the worn skirt, the plain little hat and
tho unfashionable coat. It was not
thus that Babbie had garbed herself In
her butterfly days.
"Babble," he said, gravely, "what has
happened to you, my child?"
"I mustn't tell you," she whispered.
He leaned down to look in her eyes.
"Why not?"
"Because I don't want pity."
"Ah " His hand went over hers
in a sudden hard grasp. "Is it as bad
as that?"
"Yes, I have almost died of loneli
ness and you were the only cne who
might have helped and I couldn't ask
' "Why not?"
"I think you know."
"Because you sent me away when
y ou were prosperous, you wouldn't call
rae back when you were poor? Is that
it, Babble?"
"Don't you know that my love
wouldn't ask questions? Don't you
know that I've been saillrg the seas,
traveling in foreign lands to ease my
heart? Could anything make me so
glad as to spend my life in service for

."You still stick to that?" There was
a note of anger in his voice.
He stood up. "Then I might as well
go. as I went before"
Her hand went out to stay him. then
che said, drearily: "Yes. you might as
well go."
So he went, heavily, as one who car

sands he called back to her. "Tell me
where you live." She shook her head,
emphatically. "No."
After he had gone she packed up her
book and her shawl and went home.
The brightness had gone out of hex
day, and she wanted to be where she
could weep alone. It was dark when
she reached her room, and there was
nothing to eat, for her midday meal
was all she could afford.
It tfas very early in the next morn
ing when the slatternly chorewoman,
who looked after the halls, knocked at
Babbie's door.
"A basket left for you. miss." she
said, and thrust it in.
"Not for me " Babbie protested to
the echoes; then she slipped oui of
bed and knelt to open tho tiny hamp
er. It's surely a mistake," she mur
mured." '
But it was not a mistake, for under
the oiled paper was a bunch of white
violets, with a card: "For Babble's
breakfast table" scrawled on It Then
there was a grape fruit, six small
white rolls, a little jar of marmelade
and another of potted chicken, a pat
of sweet butter and a bottle of milk.
There was no name, but Babble
knew the writing. She glanced hastily
from the window, tut no one stood on
tho doorstep. And though, when she
was dressed, she made many excur
sions down tho stairs, she did not
come upon hiin.
Every day there came a small
hamper; sometimes it was sent from
the delicatessen shop around the cor
ner, and held a hot meal, and again it
was from the fish market, with oy
sters cold in their shells, or a lobstei
with all the accompaniments of pickles
and crackers and mayonnaise, or from
I the fruit shop,
with nuts and
' aDDies and oran
and figs.
While her pride rebelled at these
gifts, she could never find the donor
to ask him to stop. Her timidity and
reserve made her shrink from going
to the shop keepers, and in the mean
time she grew rosy and strong with
the good food and the knowledge that
she had a friend. r
The chorewoman, whoso let was
cheered somewhat by a share in the
good things which came to Babbie, of
fered pertinent advice.
"If you've got a man that thinks
enough of you to send you Buch things,
you'd better tie to him."
"Babble shook her head. "1
"Why not?"
A sudden impulse came over the girl
to confide in this shrewd woman.
"Do you think i If right for a woman
to marry when she thinks she inherits
an incurable malady? My fathei
died of one and I have always, been
afraid. The man who sends these
things wanted to marry rae then, but 1
was still afraid. One can't help think
ing of what may happen, you know.
So I came here and have sewed and
managed to exist"
The chorewoman's keen eyes met
hers. "Do you know what I think?"
she asked.
"You've been left to think about
yourself too much. Probably your pa
coddled you, and got your mind in the
wrong way. I don't believe you're any
more sick than I am." .
"But" Babble began.
"Look here,", tho good woman said,
"you go down to the hospital with me
in the morning. They have a big man
there who doesn't make mistakes about
such things, and he'll tell you the
truth." t
Babbie promised, but the trip waa
never made, for that night the "big
man," who was a famous doctor,
tramped up the stairs with Richard
"I'm not going to have any more fool
ishness. Babble," Richard said quietly,
as he came In. "I've had to wait all
these days until the doctor came back
from a tilp. I don't want the opinion
of any one else.
There was a trained nurse with the
doctor, and Richard went away to talk
In a whisper. to the chorewoman, who
was an eager listener on the stairs.
The doctor, coming down, deliver
ed his opinion with a smile. "She Is
as sound as a nut"
Richard went up three steps at a
time. :'And now, Babbie!" he said ra
She held out her hands to hl.n. "And

her sentence, for his arms were about
At the wedding the chorewoman was
the only spectator. She was resplend
ent in a new gown, which was the gift
of the groom, and happy In the prom

So perhaps the sum of her prayers
for the bride amounted to more than
the usual formal petition which at such
functions go up from critical audi
ences. Horrible Bequest to Father.
What is probably the strangest and,
at the same time, the most horrible

Thsy Reveal Larger Averases
Wheat and Oats Than An
ticipated. cf
The returns from the grain fields
of Western Canada as revealed by the
work of , the Threshers, . show much
larger yields than were expected as
the crop , was ripening. It Is a little
early yet to give an estimate of the
crop as a whole, but individual yield3
selected from various points through
out Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Al
berta show that the farmers there as a
rule have had reason to be thankful
over the results. Excellent yields are
reported from many portions of Mani
toba an a large district of Saskatch
ewan has turned out well, while the
central portion of Alberta is splendid.
There will be shown at the land ex
position at St Louis a sample of the
Marque's wheat a new variety x.nd
one that appears to be well adapted
to the soil . and climate of Western
Canada that yielded 53 bushels to the
acre. The exhibit and statement will
be supported by affidavits from the
growers. inis wheat weighs well,!
ana Oeing a hard variety will find a
ready market at the highest prices ob
tainable for a first-class article. It is
interesting to point out that a fipi
of one hundred acres of this wheat
would give- its producers 5.300 bush
els. Sold at 83 cents a bushel would
give him $45 an acre. Counting all
the cost of interest on land at $20 an
acre, getting the . land ready for crop.
beed sowing, harvesting and market
ing, the entire cost of production
would not exceed $S an acre, leaving
tne handsome net profit of $37 an
acre. Is there any crop that would
yield a better return than this, with
the same labor and initial expense?
Cotton fields will not do it, apple or
chards with their great expense of cul
tivation and the risk to run from the
various enemies of the L-uit cannot
begin to do It. While what Is consid
ered an exceptional case just now is
presented, there is no doubt that this
man's experience may be duplicated
by others who care to follow his ex
ample. As has been said the growing
of this wheat Is but in its infancy, and
wheat growing is still largely con
fined to other older varieties that do
not yield as abundantly. Even with
these we have records before us of
farmers who have grown 40 bushels
to the cere., others 33, some 30, and
others again 25 bushels. Taking even
20 bushels, and some farmers report
that amount, it is found that the re
turns from such a yield would be $17
an acre. This wheat will cost to get
to market, including all expenses
about $8 'an acre, and the farmers
will still have a net profit of about
$9 an acre. Certainly the provinces
of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Mani
toba are progressing:, settlement is In
creasing and there is a general con
tentment all over the country. The
social conditions are splendid, the cli
mate is excellent, and there is every
condition to make the settler satisfied.
At the farming congress, held at Spo
kane in October, wheat shown by the
Alberta Government, took the silver
cup, awarded by the Governor of
the State. It completely outclassed
all other specimens on exhibition, and
It was but an ordinary selection,
hundreds of fields in Alberta and Sas
katchewan being able to duplicate it
There are still available thousands of
homesteads, as well as large areas of
first-class land that is being offered
tor sale at low price.3. The agent of
the Canadian Government from whom
the above facts have been -earned ex
pects that the rush to Canada will
hext year largely exceed the numbers
who have gone this year.

roots was the best corrective. This he called
