And love makes the mind kindly, so that it does not yearn for more than its share of other people's money. So in the gaining or the maintaining of health, too, love Is the fulfilling of the law And how about beauty? Why, beauty is merely health plus love. There fore, If you have love you have all things, for all things are ruled by law; love Is the fulfilling of the law. nNautllus.

Over an under lress of finely-tucked white linen (the lucks lengthwise) was worn a prin cess silk overdress, perfectly molding the figure.

The standard varieties of cottony differ considerably in susceptibility to wilt, but none of them are sufficiently iesistant to be cultivated with profit. 3n "infe.cted land.

The most resistant of the justify its general cultivation, but It has been of value as a basis for breed ing better races. Egyptian .cotton is more resistant to wilt than Upland cotton, but it has not as yet been found practicable to utilize this quality, as the Egyptian varieties do not succeed in our South eastern States and it' is easier to breed resistance direct from Upland varie ties than from crosses with Egyptian cotton. The individual differences in cotton plants have been utilized as a basis for breeding new resistant strains. The work of the Bureau of Plant In dustry has now been continued along this line for eight years, and has re sulted in the successful development of two new varieties that can be grown on the worst infected land, pro vided a rotation of crops for the con trol of root-knot is practical. The development of such varieties however, is neither quickly nor easily accomplished, but requires breeding by exact methods for several years. It will not suffice to send pickers through the fields to gather seed cot ton from apparently resistant plants, as some have recommended. Our ex perience has been that such mass se lection is expensive and ineffective. Much of the seed obtained is taken from plants not truly resistant, and the succeeding crop, is nearly as much . 1! t Vf , , , a i Tu , ' 1 " . A , . v, ni,i i sistant and nonresistant plants greatly i delays the results. The correct method is to select, with great care a small number of plants that appear to be healthy, though growing in the worst infected areas. The seed from each of these plants must he kept separate and planted In parallel rows on infected land the next year. The lected and Se otner ""carded, in' some cases aresisiani row or satis factory quality has been found the first year, and only two more sea sons were required to multiply the seed, but more often complete success has not been had at once and the work had to be repeated. The origination of new wilt-resistant varieties is work for the plant breeder rather than the general farmer, and j there is need for men in every county to take up the business of breeding to supply this demand. The farmer, however, should practice selection to further improve the strain purchased from breeders, or at least to preserve it from deterioration. The Bureau ot Plant Industry desires to stimulate the breeding and sale of improved varieties of cotton. To this end it will place the varieties already developed In the hands of men who will improve them and offer them for sale.

"Picked up a If tie more than $1,000 It was this way: Half a dozen of us over in Brooklyn formed a pool some years ago to speculate in a mild way In real j estate, each man putting up i,uuu or $2,000. Several members of the pool were real-estate men. and you know real-estate men somet'mes have rare bargains to offer if spot cash can be obtained. We wanted to take advan - tage of Just 'such bargains. We did, and our little company we had in cori orated progressed so much that the shares were worth nearly $600 apiece. One of the members of the pool died, and what do you think he did? Split up his shares and willed them to all sorts of persons. He left two to an old woman out in Long Is land who had some claim cr other on him, and that's where the story comes in. This old woman doesn't know a share of stock from a royal flush," but Bhe realized that it was worth some thing, and seeing my name on the certificate she wrote to me, saying it seemed to be wortn $100, and asking if I'd pay that much for it. What do you think of that? Two shares for $100, and the shares worth $600 a piece, almost! I sent her $100 by re turn mail, and I got her shares to-day with a note thanking me kindly for be ing so good to her. Haw! Haw! What do you think of that?" "I think," said Henderson as he arose and poured his liquor into a cuspidor, "that I do not wish to drink with a thief." And the others fol lowed Henderson's example.

The shock la not good for anyone with a weak heart, and no one- who is not well should use a shower except by the advice of a physician. As a rule, the best time for a cold shower is on rising in the morning; the system is strongest theu. Do not stay under the shower too long, a minute is quite long enough, unless one has exceptional strength. It is well to prepare for the cold shower by dashing cold water on you first or by taking a top id shower and gradually gettinr lt colder. ' and by a few physical exercises. Some women go back to bed for five minutes after the bath before dressing. The j rest overcomes any shock from tne cold water. Do not Btoop forward unduly In tak ing a shower.
