One day Setemup got moody aid
sad. His clothes were glossy,' and
since he couldn't be relied on to do1
good work because he stayed out late'
at nights and often" came to Work with
a bad headache, he had not been pio
moted for 18 months. Further, Set
emup was penniless and owed a three
weeks' board bill.
Setemup began to think. Thought
produced action, and he went to seeia
wise old uncle who often gave him
good advice, and had on one occasion
rescued him out of the hands of Bome
relentless loan sharks.
"How now?" safd the uncle. "Why
so sad?"
"I'm nearly down and out," wafl the
reply. "I can't keep good 'habits,'
somehow, and I can't save."
His relation scratched his head and
pondered for a few minutes. Then he
said, "I like you because you have the
elements of a man in you. I'll help
you by giving you an inducement to
save your money. For every dollar
you bring me inside the next two
years I'll add half a dollar. It'll cost
me soma money, but I guess it will be
worth it."
Fired by the ambition of making
such easy money, Setemup neglected
his old haunts at the bowling alleys,
the saloons, and the theaters. Inside
a month he brought his uncle a few
dollars, which the old man promised
to put carefully away for him and-add
the percentage promised. And he
kept on bringing his ungle all the
money he could spare.
The habit of saving and the virtues
it necessitated soon showed itself to
his appearance. His clothing was good
and well kept. His eyes were bright
and healthy. What most pleased him
was the fact that he began to be ad
vanced regularly, and before the twc
years were up he had become assist
ant to the head of a big department.
At the close of the two years Set
emup went to his uncle to draw his
money. The sum was so large that
he protested the old man had been
adding more than he should.
"Are you satisfied?" was the query
"Perfectly," was the reply. "I never
expected nearly so much."
"Well, I'll be honest with you. The
money just handed to you represents
your savings alone with accrued in
terest. Lately I've met with some re
verses, and am unable to add my pro
portion but I will later.
"In this world," said the uncle,
"habits are the real giant forces for
good or evil. I simply helped you to
establish one good habit, and lo! like
magic, all the* rest of the virtues fol
lowed in its train. The forming of
one good habit and sticking to it often
will help a man to make good head
way in a manner faster than he could
imagine in his wildest dreams."

day after they had returned from their

"Don't worry it isn't about your
cooking. It is about the letters you
write and ask me to mail. It strikes
me that we might be happier—"
"If I didn't write to anyone? Qh,
John, how—"
"Wait until I have finished, mj
dear. All I want to suggest is that
you mail your own letters, so I won't
be forever forgetting them, and in re
turn for so doing that I will sew all
my buttons on. By doing so it seems
to me we will overcome two obstacles

The big fish which got away was
caught In our reservoir to-day at the
National Military home in Ohio. This
is the first one on record recaptured.
Our champion angler was fishing
for bass and caught a small one, then
rebaited his hook with a lively min
now and made, another cast, when, in
his own words,' there was a rush of
the big fish for the bait, the quick pull
to fasten hook, the broken line and
the oft-told story repeated—the fish
got away with- part of the line and
float attached. The float indicated the
motions and position of the fish as
he tried to get rid of the hook, and
many anglers and friends of the
fortunate fisherman offered
tions and helped to recapture the
struggling bass, one offering to carry
a skiff from an adjoining lake and go
out after him. Finally the fish ap
proached the shore near enough to
cast a line over him and fasten In the
broken line. The crowd on shore
awaited the result with excited, eager
attention as the fish was brought to
net and safely landed. When weighed
the indicator pointed to six ounces.—

Breakfast Bacon.
Perhaps bacon is best cooked in the
following manner: Cut it into thin
slices and place them on a wire broil
sr over a dripping pan. Let them
bake in a very hot oven until brown
and crisp. When cooked in this way
bacon is especially adapted to dyspep
tics, as all superfluous grease has drip
ped into the pan beneath.
Bacon is also delicious served with
cream sauce. Pour the grease in the
dripping pan into a bowl, to use later
for frying purposes, and add a little
flour and milk to the few drippings
that remain. Cook the sauce on top
of the stove and pour it over the ba
Kartoffet Glace.
Mash potatoes while still hot, sea

milk, one egg, salt and pepper to

to hold the mixture together. Beat

be taken out with a skimmer.

The hired man was born on a farm
four miles from Cannon Falls, Minn.
The farm was fenced on one side by the.
Canncn river, in which the hired man
often washed his feet at sunset. It was
also a handy place to jvater the cows.
In the winter the hired man walked
two miles to school, occupied a front
seat, buried himself in his geography
in his search for knowledge he also
whittled his desk and put a piece of
limburger cheese in Swan Nelson's
ink well. As soon as he was big
enough he began working at his trade
as a hired man. After milking seven
cows he plowed corn all day and
talked about hard times with the rest
of the men at night' When he was
twenty-one years old he started to
town to vote, but fell in the river and
changed his mind. One day. a pump
agent gave him a cigar and he tried
to smoke it when driving an old cow
to the butcher shop. He took sick by
the roadside and was unable to ac
company the cow to her destination.
The cow got into the pound and the
hired man got fired. After spending
a week looking for the pump agent
with a pump handle the hired man
came to North Dakota and went to
work for Poison Carrots.
