There are very few plants easier cf culture than cinerarias and again there are just as few things we know of that become so utterly worthless if their simple requirements are not attended to. The seed of cinerarias may be sown any time cfter the first week in Au gust. It eJ'ould be sown in shallow, well drained pans in soil composed of loam, leaf mold and sand in about equal proportions. The surface should be made perfectly level and even. Then the seed may be sown somewhat thinly, covering it with fine sand anil water with a fine hose. After the seed Is sown place the seed pans in a frame with the sash sloped to the north. When the seedlings are large enough to handle they should be potted into the smallest pots with soil composed of rotted turf chopped up and leaf mold CINERARIA HYBIUDA. in equal parts, with the addition of a liberal sprinkling of clear sand. The second shift should be given whenever the roots are well through the soil in their first pots. The soil for the second and still more so for the following shifts should have, in addition to the loam and leaf mold, a reasonable pro portion of rotted cow manure and it may help to lessen the quantity of leaf mold when shifting for the last time prior to flowering. Remove plants into the greenhouse by the middle of October, where the temperature should not exceed 55 de crees. When the plants begin to show flower they will be greatly benefited if thej are given liquid manure regularly. This stimulant is likely to be harmful, however, if it is too strong or if given when the plants are dust dry (a condi tion that should not exist). Weak cow manure is as good as, if not better than, anything else and immediately after watering with it give the plants some pure water. In handling cinerarias look for good foliage in order to secure good flowers.—Gardening. A Peripatetic Investment. When the scallop is full grown It is able to swim with great rapidity by opening and closing the valves of its shell. This curious fact, says What to Eat, was unknown to an unfortunate Frenchman who undertook a few years ago to establish a scallop plantation on a quiet New England beach. He deposited several thousand scallops in shallow water, expecting them to breed, but when he looked for them the next day all of them had fled. Literary Exercises. Wife (scornfully)—Oh, I've no doubt you were at your literary club reciting poetry till this hour of the night And, pray, what were you reciting? Hus band (reminiscently)—l think wash something 'bout "Chips That Fash In the Night."—Baltimore American. His Cleverness. "Don't be so lazy. There's plenty of room at the top, and you're clever enough to get there." "But," replied the lazy genius, "think how clever it is of me to find a place at the bottom, where there Isn't so much room." Her Note Was Final. The proprietor of a large drug store recenUy received this curt and haughty note written in an angular feminine hand: "I do not want vasloline, but glisserine. Is that plain enough? I persoom you can spell." ( " * An Exacting Trainer. "Who won that long distance walk ing match?" "Spriggins." "He did? Who was his trainer?" "His ten-months-old baby."—Chicago Record-Herald. Fate leads the willing, but drives the •tubborn.—French Proverb. Foolish Question. "Hello!" cried the neighbor. "What are you building a new chicken house for?" "Why," replied Nettles, "for a flock of pink elephants, of course. Ton didn't suppose I'd put chickens in it, did Judicious Charity. "I don't believe he is so miserly as they say. I hear he invites his poor relations to visit him each year.** "Yes. They all live at a considerable distance and are too poor to come." It Would Improve It. A clergyman speaking on charity held that charity which was not grace ful and clean was bound to fall, bring ing to the donor scorn Instead of gratis : tude. ! "Thus," he once said in a Sunday school address, "a rich landlord while making the round of his tenants' cot tages collecting rents met a little girl whose beauty much impressed him. i "In the shabby front room of the cottage the landlord talked for awhile with the little girl, and as he rose to go an unwonted feeling of kindliness warmed his heart. j " 'Let me see,' he said, fishing in his pockets—'let me see if I haven't some thing to give to this dear little girl.' "And, smiling and chuckling, he went through pocket after pocket. Finally in his hip pocket he found a pepper mint drop, a white peppermint drop. He dusted the fluff and lint from it and extended It gayly to the little girl, j " 'Here we are.' he cried. 'I thought we had something. Here is a nice peppermint drop for you. And now,' he ended, 'what will you do with it?* " 'Wash it,' said the little girl grave ly." Beginnings of Baseball. The history of the American came dates from the first National Associa tion of Baseball in New York in 1858. The first series of Important match games was played between picked nines of Brooklyn and New York, at Flushing, in the same year. Nearly 2,000 persons—a large crowd for those days—paid their 50 cents a head to see the contest. The rules of baseball were very crud-» in those days. The pitcher's position was simply limited to a twelve foot line forty-five feet from the home base, behind which be could take any number < f slips he wished. All he was required to do was to pitch the ball as near as possible over the home base. There was no penalty for wild pitching or for refusing to strike at fair balln. I once saw a pitcher de liver sixty balls to a single batsman in one innlug before there was a Btrike. Not until 1870 were there any para phernalia for defense. Old time catch ers' hands were a sight with their cracked Joints and bruised palms.— Harry Chadwick in Outing. French Bulls. The number of phrases of the class called "bulls" to be found in polite works are not all the product of the Irish brain. A novel that was crowned by the French ncademy as possessed of un usual merit contained a sentence of which the following is a translation: "It was midnight. A man who lay in ambush listened to their conversa tion. but suddenly a dense, dark cloud passed in front of the moon and pre vented -him from hearing more/' Another phrase, written In down right seriousness by a master of French criticism, runs something like j this: "It wa« one of those duels In which one of the blades literally buries Itself In the heart of the other."—Minneapo lis Journal. •' ' ■ Their Little Burprise. They were elopers, and the stern par ent was supposed to be in pursuit But he wasn't. On the contrary, a tele gram awaited them at the next town. "Is it forgiveness?" asked the agitated youth as he handed it to the angelic one. She read it through and bunt into tears. Then the startled youth took it and read it aloud. "Your moth er and I offer congratulations. Your hasty action meets with our approval. We can now carry out a plan that we have long contemplated and that was ! delayed only because we had you with us. In other words, we are about to > break up housekeeping and go Into a flat!"— Argonaut. Helpless! I A city man had a friend in from a north country farm on a business mat ter the other day, and they lunched to gether at a restaurant. The Cork man ate bis meal entirely with his knife. When he was near the end he discov ered that he had no fork. I "Look here." he said to the city man, I "that waiter didn't give me a fork." I "Well, you don't need one," replied the city man seriously. "The deuce I don't!" came from the farmer. "What am I going to stir my coffee with?"— London Opinion. A Graceful Withdrawal. "Do you know who that old man la talking to our hostess?" asked Mrs. Blunderer of the lady sitting beside her. "That," answered the woman cold ly, "is my son." "Oli," gasped Mrs. Blunderer in con fusion, "he's a good deal older than you are, is he notLlpplncott's. Concentration. | The Servant—Professor, there is a thief in the dining room!

Why He Was Happy. Briggs—Hudson seems to be happy. Griggs—Yes; he has little money, but ! he possesses a philosophical tempera ment and simple tastes. Briggs—l see. He Is Independently poor.—Judge.
