She Spent Most of Her Hours in the Garden.
When Older Brother first called her
Beauty the whole family laughed.
That was a rare compliment to Older
Brother's wit, for the family was one
seldom given to mirth But when they
looked from the thin, pinched little
face, with its buttermilk expression,
down the angular young body to the
too long legs, and back again to the
the girl by Older' Brother was so in
congruous that even Mother, who had
never wanted any one of her six chil
dren (least of all Beauty) could not
help laughing outright. Naturally
Older Brother was much pleased with
himself and saw to it that the name
elung to the little girl all through the
days of her childhood.
The years that came and went made
Beauty no less a misnomer, for the
girl's face grew smaller and more
pinched and more sour with every one
of them. The youngest and least wel
come of all the unwelcome six at
home she was always pushed aside to
shuffle for herself as best she might,
getting but the frazzled end of every
family deal. In school things were no
better. Other children called her
Beauty and roared with laughter until
the girl designated by the name al
ways slunk unhappily away to some
far corner where no one would find
and taunt her.
So Beauty grew up for all the world
like an unlovely, scraggly lItle weed
crowded in among hardier plants which
never gave her room to thrive and be
* * * * * *
When The First Man met her, and
heard someone call her Beauty he fol
lowed the earlier example of her fam
ily. That is he laughed-almost in
Beauty's very face. And whenever he
was alone and thought of the ungainly
young woman with her sour face, he
Then to keep up his reputation for
doing odd things The First Man paid
court to Beauty.
The girl's family was thrown almost
into cachinnating fits, and The First
AMan's friends said he must be crazy,
all of which made him the more deter
mined in his attentions.
One day when he was in a particu
larly spiteful and contrary mood The
First Man asked Beauty to marry him,
and the girl, who was every whit as
resentful of the gibes and jest of his
friends and hers said yes.
When they were married they led. a
cat and dog life, which was quite to
have been expected. The First Man
called his wife Beauty with a sneer,
and she told him in turn that she had
married him for spite and hated him
cordially, all of which was true enough
to be sure.
One day The First Man told her that
he was going away for a long time.
He said her face had made him sick;
that he couldn't stand it any longer.
She spat back a sharp retort, and he
After a long while Beauty received
a letter from The First Man telling her
he never intended to come back. She
loked in the m'rror at her buttermilk
face and told herself quite honestly
that she didn't blame him in the least,
and straightway got her divorce.
It was different with The Second
Man. Beauty never knew how it hap
peoed that he gravitated to her unless
it was, as he said, that there is always
something away down in the soul of
every woman which some time or an
other draws her mate to her.
He got down to the causes of the
caustic temper of Beauty when he
first met her, and learned that her soul
was asleep because there had been no
love in all her ilfe to awaken it. So
when they were married he just loved
her. He made his home the most
'. i place Be eaty had ever seen in
aher young' lice through the tender
ness of his smile, and the gentleness
of his presence. He helped her make
a garden in which the flowers seemed
only to need his touch to make them
grow more luxuriously than in any
other garden she had ever seen, and
the young wife was happy because she
spent most c her hours in the garden,
either working among the flowers or
listening to the resonant voice of The
Second ,Man as he read to her from
some old and wonderful volume, of
which he had hundreds.
Beauty was so absorbed in her new
life that she never stopped these days
to look in the mirror and talk to her
self in tones of disgust. The divinity
within her had been touched by an
other divine spark, and fanned by the
power of love into a sculptor. And
this sculptor had remolded the
peaked little face of Beauty into the
countenance of a woman so lovely
that those who laughed themselves al
most sick when Older Brother first
gave her the name of Beauty looked
at her now with something of awe
mingled in with their wonder.
But so busy was Beauty in loving
and being loved that she did not notice
them nor hear the things they said,
and when at last motherhood complet
ed the work The Second Man had be.
gun, and he knelt beside her as she
sat in a great arm chair with the little
new soul cradled in her arms, and
whispered "Beauty" in a tone akin to
reverence, her laughter sounded like
the gurgle of a cooing brook, and her
eyes shone like two stars.
One day The First Man came back
from abroad. When he saw Beauty
for the first time he did not know her.
Then he was told that it was she and
he said a miracle had been wrought.
"Aye," answered the man to whom
he spoke, "the miracle of love."
Lamps of Early Times.
Lamps were in general use among
the Jews, Greeks and Romans, and
the other great nations of antiquity,
but they were of the rudest descrip
tion, and consisted for the most part
of a simple vessel which held oil
grease or wax, from the surface of
which projected a wick.
The light obtained was of the fee.
blest description, the flame had no
protection whatever from the wind,
and the smell which arose could only
have been rendered endurable from
the fact that "use is second nature."
The Greeks and Romans lavished
much artistic excellence upon their
lamps, making them with one wick,
two wicks, or 30 or 40 wicks. But
they did not improve their construc
tion one step, and to all practical in
tents and purposes they were no bet
ter than the saucer of tallow with its
floating cotton which may yet be
found flaring and guttering and smok
ing in some of the out-of-the-way cot
ners of our own far western land.

The experience of Motherhood is a try
ing one to most women and marks dis
tinctly an epoch in their lives. Not one
woman in a hundred is prepared or un
derstands how to properly care for her
self. Of course nearly every woman
nowadays has medical treatment at such
times, but many approach the experi
ence with an organism unfitted for the
trial of strength, and when it is over
her system has received a shock from
which it is hard to recover. Following
right upon this comes the nervous strain
of caring for the child, and a distinct
change in the mother results.
There is nothing more charming than
a happy and healthy mother of children,
and indeed child-birth under the right
conditions need be no hazard to health or
beauty. The unexplainable thing is
that, with all the evidence of shattered
nerves and broken health resulting from
an unprepared condition, and with am
pie time in which to prepare, women
will persist in going blindly to the trial.
Every woman at this time should rely
upon Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, a most valuable tonic and
invigorator of the female organism.

Only Two Legs Left.
Carmargo, in Dewey county, Okla.,
has dogs-big dogs, little dogs and in
fact all kinds of dogs, but it has one
that is somewhat of an oddity. This
is a dog that travels on two legs.
Several months ago a dog belonging
to Mr. Storey, section foreman of Sup
ply, Okla., was run over by a train and
two of his legs cut off. For some time
he was unable to move around, but
now has recovered so that lhe can nav
igate quite handily. The two legs on
which he is forced to walk are both
on one side. He not only walks, but
can also run, and seems to be about
as well able to get around as a dog
with four good legs.
