The Charm of
Mrs. Gable wondered if any other
mother ever had such a difficult
daughter as her Isabel. Isabel was
fourteen and had always been a docile,
easily managed child till she sudden
ly developed a demoralizing fondness
for her schoolmate, Lillian, who was
a year older than she.
"Let me have the French heels,
mother!" Isabel had pleaded one day
when they were buying footgear.
"These square ones are so ugly! They
haven'^ any style! You ought to see
the lovely heels Lillian has on her—"
"Lillian! Who is Lillian?" her
mother had demanded.
"She's the sweetest, loveliest girl
you can imagine!" Isabel had breath
lessly explained. "I'm crazy about
her! She has eyes just like those you
read of in novels, with delicately pen
ciled brows
"What novels?" again demanded
her mother, aghast.
"Lillian lent them to me," Isabel
said a little petulantly. "They are
very nice books. Her eyes are just
like the eyes of the heroines, mother!
And' she walks just as though she
were trailing silken skirts across mar
ble halls, you know
"I'm quite sure I don't know!" broke
in Mrs. Gable in displeasure. "You're
not to read books without first asking
me and French heels aren't the thing
for a schoolgirl, Isabel. Do be sen
Isabel therefore wore square heels
and a mutinous, injured expression.
One morning Isabel came down to
breakfast flushed and a trifle hesitant,
with her blonde locks wonderfully and
fearfully crimped and puffed out
around her childish face. In that first
amazed glance her mother decided
that a tape line laid across the top of
the structure would measure at least
a yard from side to side.
"It's like Lillian's!" Isabel burst out.
"Her hair looks perfectly beautiful
and is so stylish! She says you can
curry your head better when it's done
so! She says your head should sway
like—like a lily on its stalk and—"
"Isabel," said her mother, "I'm sorry,
but you'll have to go upstairs and put
it up in your usual braids and rib
"Oh, mother!" Isabel wailed. "You
are so cruel! If you could see Lil
Isabel's passionate admiration for
Lillian threatened to become a serious
affair. She squandered all her pocket
money on candy and flowers to take
to Lillian. She sung Lillian's praises
morning, noon and night. She was
broken-hearted Fridays because she
could not see her divinity till the
next Monday, her mother refusing to
let her go to Lillian's house. And she
was continually breaking out in the
most unexpected directions and ex
plaining that Lillian did so. If her
divinity had a blue dress Isabel art
fully contrived that her own next
dress should be blue. Once her mother
found her ripping the hem in her
school dress.
"Please let me wear it longer!" she
had begged. "If you could see Lil
lian's! She looks so graceful!"
For the hundredth time Mrs. Gable
helplessly wished the fascinating Lil
lian were thousands of miles away.
She was losing all control of her
"Lillian says I am so sympathetic,"
Isabel announced one day. "Why, she
confides In me, mother! She says we
are twin souls. She is perfectly
happy when she is with me and so am
I with her! She has the most beauti
ful thoughts! Why, she's perfectly
After Lunan had permeated the
very atmosphere for months, invading
every conversation and upsetting all
Mrs. Gable's rules and regulations
and discipline, that much-tried woman
of course noticed it when a whole day
passed with no mention of Lillian's
name. For Isabel to refrain from
singing her adored One's praises was
almost too good to be true.
A whole week, however, went by
and Mrs. Gable saw Isabel actually
returning to her usual state of child
hood naturalness. It was as though
she had emerged from some malign
spell. Curiosity finally overcame her
mother's caution.
"I don't hear you mention Lillian
much of late," said Mrs. Gable.
"What's the reason?"
Isabel tossed her braids contemptu
ously. "Oh, that girl!" she said, with
scornful accents. "She deceived me,
mother! I thought she was perfectly
lovely and liked me, but what do you
think she did. She dropped me the
minute Ed. Griffith began hanging
around her! And he's just a common,
ordinary boy! I'm so disappointed in
her! She won't pay any attention to
me and I never liked her very much,
anyway. Are we going to have cus
tard pie for dessert tonight?"
Then Mrs. Gable knew she had her
daughter back again.
Taking a Car to Europe.
The Initial cost of transporting a
motor car from New York to Europe,
including shipping and crating, is
about $200. Most steamship lines
have their crating departments and
though attempts have been made to
dispose of crating, that seems to ba
a necessary safeguard—Travel Mag

What One Thorough Wetting Does
For Gliechen Farmer.
Quarter Section Of Winter Wheat
Irrigated Last Summer Will
Turn Off Fine Crop.
Those who are competent to judge
state that the record yield of winter
"'heat in southern Alberta this year
will be harvested on the farm, of F. W.
Crandall, which is situated near Glie
chen. It is stated that the general
average of this field of 1(30 acres will be
at least 40 bushels to the acre.
Last fall, Mr. Crandall decided to
demonstrate the value of irrigation.
His action was taken with a view to
determing the cost of irrigating Bow
valley land, and also to make a com
parison of crops grown in the same
districts, under irrigation and under
natural rainfall conditions.
Put Water On Once
The story of this, which may prove
to be the banner crop of Alberta Red
for the year 1910, reads as follows:—
The plowing was done in the spring of
l'.lOO, the water being turned on July
7 by the 30th the field was thorough
ly irrigated and the water turned off.
The irrigation materially assisted in
the rotting of the sods and when sow
ing commenced on August 15th it was
found that the soil was quite mellow.
No irrigation, other than the first, was
necessary, but this spring, the field
was packed with a view to saving the
The Cost
In speaking of the cost of irrigating
this laud, Mr. Crandall says:
A. P. Hansen out on the creek

that the cost of this work was 42A cents
per acre. I paid $2.50 per day for one
man and $2.75 for another, neither
seemed to know the first thing about
the distribution of water.
For the making of the small distri
buting ditches I paid $S a day for a
man with four horse* all the prices
for labor were the average for similar
work. Much work was done unneces
sarily on account of inexperience, and
under more favorable circumstances,
as far as labor was concerned, I am
satisfied the same area eould be irriga
ted for an amount not exceeding 40 cts.
per acre.
what Will It Bring
When estimating the profit on this
crop, Mr.|Crandall said: "From this
100 acres I expect to secure 6,400 bu
shels of No.
1 Alberta lied and there is
every reasonjto believe that this crop
will be sold at $1 p#r bushel at the ele
vator, giving me
a gross return of $6400.
The total expense connected with this
crop will not exceed $10 per acre, which
will givef mc a profit of $4,800 or a sum
exceeding the price I paid for this
land. This is, of course, based upon a
price of $1 per bushel, and I believe
that this year's crop will sell at a figure
in advance of $1 per bushel.—Weekly
