Evening gowns have never been

diaphanous and therefore perishable
materials, which need to be made up

The same advantage may be claimed

Bursts of passion in a little child
must be met by steady, gentle firmness
on the mother’s side. Loud outcries
should be hushed not by angry words,
but by u grave quietness of voice and
speech, which helps to repress them by
mere. tsree of contrast.
Passionate gestures, such as blows,
kicks and drumming with the heels up
on the floor, should be prevented by
physical force if necessary. Allow all,
the thing coveted if it causes the child
to fly into a rage as the readiest means
of obtaining it should never be granted.
As the child grows older and can he
reasoned with he or she should be
taught to avoid the beginnings of
wrath, to struggle against irritability
and not to give way to it in words
when it rises in the mind, says the
Washington Star.
Quick tempered children often have
generous, lovable natures, easily influ
enced for good. A wish to please an
other and to do what la right for its
own sake may be made strong enough
to close the lips against the torrent of
angry words that rushes to them and
so helps them to victory. Each effort
at self conquest makes the next one
easier.

“Heered anything ’bout wheat to
day?” grumbled old Jake as his hired
man entered. "Goin’ down, of course?”
“No; goin’ up,” Bill answered prompt
ly. “A man hollered to me from the
aige of the hill this moruin' an' said
’twas TO.”
“Seventy!” Jake grabbed his crutches
and rose totteriugly to his fact, but
sank back with a snarl of mingled
pain and rage. “Seventy cents, an’
I’ve got ninety bushels! Durn the old
back! Time I'm over the rheumatics
it'll be down to 50, like ’twas last year,
an’ there'll be a clean loss of $18.
Blame it all!”
"Thar’s Bill, pap,” suggested his
daughter. “He’s mighty strong au’i
willin’.”
The face darkened, then grew light
er. Evidently the idea, at first scout
ed, was being tolerated. That meant
the hired man had moved forward.
“I—dunno,” doubtfully.
Bill saw his opportunity and rose to
it like a man.
“I’U take it down all right,” he said
confidently. “I’ve sold wheat to Staun
“bid y* git the seventy cents?” de
manded JAKE EAGEELY.
ton afore.” He was thinking of two
bushels he had once taken to market
for his father, the proceeds of which
he had lost on the way home.
Jake snorted. “Thar’s more failin'® :
than raisin's in wheat,” he snapped,
“so X reckon ye’d better go, An’, mind, !
I want ye to git it all in toruorrer.” j
Bill's head was whirling, but there j
was Laurel looking »t him confidently.
“All right,” he said as steadily as he
could. “The mules can draw half on
the long waggin, an’ I’ll borry Tom ;
Stuart's mule an' Ike Brown’s old hoss j
an’ hitch 'em to Ben Coyuer's hay I
waggin. That’ll take the other half.
Ike’s boy Sam can drive ahind me, so
I can keep an eye on to him. Oh,' yes;
we’ll gft on fust rate.”
Jake nodded approvingly. It was a
good plaV
After the wheat was loaded the nest
tnoruiug Bill contrived to draw Laurel
into the kitchen for a moment.
' Say, Laurel, he began eagerly, “I—
I—say, would ye miad me gittin’ a ring
to Staunton, a gold ring, for ye au’
me?”
She looked at him quickly, under
standingly, her face flushing.
"Why, no, I wouldn’t mind, Bill,”
she said simply. “I’ll be real glad.”
‘‘An’—an’ would ye mind speakin’ to
yer pap ’bout It while I'm gone. Lau
rel? It might be a good time now I*m
a-totin’ bis wheat.”
“N-no; 1 don't mind.”
She watched him from the doorway
until the heavy wagons rumbled out
of sight; then she went in to her fa
ther.
‘Tap.” she announced , abruptly,
“Bill's ast me to marry him.”
•‘An’ you?”
“I’ve said yes.” composedly.
Jake controlled himself with a
‘ mighty effort. With Laurel he must
be diplomatic.
“Well, mebbe ye know best,” he
fflfaaat'Otl affably, ‘‘but know boW
It IS wnn am. Tell Hare io wart rut
he’s able to keep ye. I don’t reckon
he’s saved enough to buy a runt pig
yet.”
But Laurel smiled contentedly. Peo
ple were easily , mistaken, she thought.
Had Bill not promised her a gold ring
out of the plenitude of his riches? So
she said softly, ‘‘We’ll wait till ye say
yerse’f that Bill's able to keep ine.”
Curiously enough, at that very mo
ment Bill was wondering dismally how
he would he able to contrive the pur
chase of a gold ring. Twenty-five
cents represented the accumulation of
his twenty-five years.
They expected him back by the end
of the third day. It was the afternoon
of the sixth when he returned. As he
dismissed young Sam and attended to
his mules there was a look of beatific
joy upon his face, which remained
there until he opened the cabin door
and saw the expectant face of Jake.
Then he whitened and staggered to the
nearest chair. , '
“Ye pore boy!” cried Laurel tender
ly. “Yer plumb beat out.”
“Did ye git the 70 cents?” demanded
Jaks eagerly.
Bill gasped and tried to collect his
thoughts. 'What was he here for? It
•tfas about the wheat, wasn't it? He
had almost forgotten that unimportant
matter after the gold ring took posses
sion of his mind. He remembered the
wheat had been taken to the store
room of a big flouring will and that he
had told a clerk he would be back later
and attend to its sale. Then he had hur
ried away in search of a job of hauling
with the mules and had carted sand
two days for $6 and had bought the
gold ring. And he had given Sam the
25 cents to pay his fare to a cousin's
to get him out of the way for the two
days. That was all, only he had for
gotten to go back and sell the wheat.
“Did ye git the 70 cents?” demanded
Jake for the second time.
Bill felt that it was a crisis with
him, and he drew a long, hard breath.
“Ye see, it’s this a-way,” he said.
“Signs are for risin’, an’ I ain’t sold
yet. But X’Jl go down”— He was
about to say “to oneet,” but restrained
himself, for that might betray him.
He added instead, “But I’ll go down
in a few days an’ see how the risin’ is
cornin’ on.”
under ordinary circumstances the
invalid would not have controlled'his
astonishment and wrath, but this was
an extraordinary opportunity, and
Jake was nothing if not diplomatic, so
he forced hirusPlf into a semblance of
composure.
“TV'aal, it’s yer lookout, Bill,” he said
significantly. “I ordered ye to sell,
an’ of course I'll hold ye responsible
for all fallin’s from the 70 cents.” *
It was a very miserable Bill who
went out to attend to the evening
chores. He imagined all sorts' of fall
ings—from a life of toil spent in aton
ing for the carelessness to the proba
ble loss of Laurel. He stuck it out,
however, until the third morning. Then
he left the cabin with steady, con
fident strides, which, however, changed
to frantic haste as soon as he was be
yond view of Laurel in the doorway.
But the mills of the gods sometimes
torn out unaccountable grist. When
Bill returned at the end of one short
twenty-four hours, his face was again
expressive of beatific joy.
Crc iug straight to Jake, he handejl
him a roll of bills. “The risin’ was
even better than I ’lowed on,’’ he said
nonchalantly. “I sold for a dollar.
Ye sec, thnr was signs of breakin’,
an’ I ’lowed I better not hold on any
longer.”
Jake gazed at the money; at the
strong, handsome figure before him;
at Laurel, smiling a' few feet away,
and bowed hit- a^ad in surrender.
“I reckon I might ’a’ been mistook,
Ldurel,” he said submissively. “Bill
will be able to keep ye. sure "Hough.”

to be a necessity with every well
dressed woman.'and it should invaria
bly be placed in the strongest possible
light. This may make her Wince as the
years go by, but it will tend to make
her careful and more apt to keep from
other people what the glass tells her.
