There was the time he confused
those two letters-one was to Miss
Rayster, to whom Reggie was very de
voted, and the other to Snydham, who
lid transacted a piece of business
which narrowly escaped the line of
bare-faced fraud, and which made poor
Winters' pocketbook wofully thin for a
time. He wrote the letters the same
afternoon and addressed the envelopes
indiscriminately -the rattlebrain!
The estimable young lady's feelings
may be easily imagined when she read
-there was not even salutation
"You are a fraud, a liar and a thief."
Reggie was in a temper when he
penned those words. She d ot take
the trouble to read the letter way
through, but glanced at the signature,
and sniffed a very scornful sniff.
Suydham was equally surprised when
he read the sweet little note never in
tended for his eyex.
Poor Winters was fairly crushed
when he realized, with many hints
from the malicious Saydham, what a
blunder he had committl. He had
not the courage to call and face the
storm of feminine wrath which must
inevitably await him-he was withal
something of a coward-but wrote pro
fuse apologies, and took great care in
addressing the envelope which inclosed
them. And so the engagement between
Miss Ruyster and himself, at which
so many people had hinted, never ma

like a child until the following morn

raigned a young man who would ac
cept an invitation, and then spoil a
nicely-planned dinner by leaving an
odd young lady? To his dying day he
would remember the horror he had felt
when he had awakened that morning
and tried to recall the principal events
of the dinner of the previous evening,
and the appalling but none the less
true state of affairs had slowly but
surely dawned on his mind.
At such times he would declare, with
shockingly-improper phrases, that it
was infinitely better to have no brain
at all than to be possessed of an inter
mittent. one like his own.
At last there came a time when he
began to be hopeful. For a period of
six whole months-full months, vary

length, his mind had been constant, so
to speak. In fact, he had become so

which young lady he had escorted
thither, he was puffed up by a certain
sense of pr!de and self-importance.
One Sunday evening when he was
calling on Miss Hadley she described
to him :a such aglowing manner, with
such pretty smiles on her full lips and
such a marvelous light in her dark
eyes-tl ese were Reggie as thoughts
during the description-a charity fair
which was to be held the following
week that he made a mental resolve to
purchase an absurdly large number of
tickets. And she was to be in charge
of the booth where discarded but still
useful articles of clothing would be re
ceived for the deserving poor, who had
suffered so much during the hard times.
It was such a nice, practical idea, she
thought, which is equivalent to saying
he thought so too.
When he left that evening he wrote
it all down in his memorandum, for it
was not safe, he found, to trust too
much to his mind even then.
The opening evening of the fair
came and Reggie consulted the little
book, that its enlightenment might
put all shadows of doubt to flight, and
being assured of the rectitude. of every
thing he arrayed himself for the fete.
When he was about to start a very
ominous thing occurred. He tried no
less than a dozen times to ignite a pen
cil with which to light his cigar. This
old time symptom made him very nerv
ous. He walked down to the ball where
the fair was to be held, and entered.
He hoped to heavens he wouldn't make
any beastly break to-night. He
slipped off hisheavy, fur-linedovereoat
-he was very fond of this particular
coat-and looked about for that indis
pensable booth which is fundamental
to all successful fairs, where for the
small bribe of a dime they generously
check your hat and coat. Ah! that
must be it where those gentlemen
were passing in those articles. He
walked rapidly to the booth and held
I out his coat and hat. There was a
vision of a sweet familiar face and a
sweet familiar voice said: "Oh, how
very generous of you, Mr. Winters!"
And Miss Hadley gracefully deposited
the things she had taken from him.
Then Winters remembered what she
had told him about her booth. Merci
ful heavens! his hat and pet overcoat
had gone to adorn the city poor. He
gasped; he felt confused, suffocated.
He could not ask Miss Hadley to re
turn them--oh, of course he couldn't!
He did not trust himself to speak in

his present state of confusion. He
seemed to see all those girls he had
offended pointing warning fingers at
him, and he shivered. Gathering his
shattered forces as best he could he
retreated to a retired corner and in
dulged in some language very uncom
plimentary to himself.
Throughout the evening, while he
was being swindled at the varikmot
booths, he was endeavoring to form
some scheme which might recover for
him the much-prized overcoat. But
his thoughts refused to approach con
centration, and at last he gave up in
despair, and slipping out by a side way
where there were but few people to be
encountered, he summoned a cab, and
tying a handkerchief over .his head
rode home in company with his bitter
musings. Before he reached his door,
however, a happy thought had come
to his deliverance. How stupid! Of

The '"Charity Fair" came to an end,
and one evening shortly after its suc

waiting before a cozy open fire in the
spacious ball of the Hadley house for
Miss Mae to appear.
His plan was all arranged. He kae,
just where each word came in, for he

FOR STACKING HAY.
One of the Bet sad Cheapest Derricks
One of the best and cheapest derricks
for stacking hay out-of-doors cossists
simply of one straight pole 40 feet high,
secured in an upright position by
means of four guy ropes each abotst 80
feet long. Place the pole in a some
what slanting position so that the top
will be directly over the center of the

stack. For instance if the stack is to
be If feet square, the bottom of the
pole will be placed on the outside of this
square, with the top directly over the
center. Fasten a strong piece of wood,
2x6 feet. on the bottom of the pole
with wire rings in each end by means
of wlich it can be staked firmly to the
grouz,d. The four guy ropes are fast
ened to the top of the pole and to the
ground by means of a stake. The pul
leys and hay forks are attached much
the same as in a barn and are operated
For making the pole, I use two tele
graph poles, one 20 feet, the other 24
feet, and splice them firmly together.
For guy ropes, take 6 or 7 strands of
No. 12 galvanized wire, draw them
tight and twist. The best way to do
this is to fasten one end to a post by
means of a chain with a swivel and
pull them taut with a large wire fence
stretcher such as is used in putting up
woven wire fence. The swivel will
permit the bunch of wires being
twisted any desired amount. The guy
ropes will cost S2.40, the pole $2.50, and
in addition you will need the hay fork
and pulleys, which can be taken from
the barn. The total expense of this de
vice is consequently only $4.90. The
whole apparatus in position is shown
in the cut. I have used this kind of a
hay pole for two years and can recom
mend it. It is the best derrick for
stacking hay that I have ever tried.
Several of my neighbors have used it
and all of them are pleased. With the
pole 40 feet long, a stack 30 to 35 feet
high can easily be built. The higher
the pole the easier for the man on the
stack.--F'arm and Home.
They Grow as Rapidly as Animals Fed on
In many farm districts the milk is
sold to a dairy factory where the
cream is removed from the fresh milk
by a centrifugal separator. The cream
becomes creamery butter, but the
sweet skimmed or separated milk is
sent back to the farms in the milk
wagons, being sold at a nominal price
per gallon for feeding to calves and
pigs. Oil cake or flaxseed meal is
often added to the milk when fed to
calves, but Prof. C. F. Curtiss, of the
Iowa agricultural college, has recently
shown that it is much better to replace
the flaxseed meal with ground oats, or
with corn meal containing one-tenth
of ground flaxseed. Calves were suc
cessfully and profitably reared on sep
arated milk and the grains and hay
usually grown on the farm. During
the first three months the increase in
live weight was at the rate of one
pound of gain for a little less than two
pounds of dry t.satter in the feed, esti
mated by evaeporating all the water
from representative samples. Dur
ing the eighth month, without milk,
these calves gained an average of one
pound for each four and three-fifths
pounds of dry matter in the grain, hay
and green forage fed to them. The
experiment indicates that good calves
can be grown on separated milk and
farm feeds during their first two or
three months of life, at a food cost of
about two cents per pound of live
weight The superior adaptability
and digestibility of separated milk for
young animals is also shown, as
well as the application of the law of
growth that as growing animals ad
vance in age, an increasing quantity of
food is required for a given amount of

THE HORSE'S TAIL.
Fregaenti It latsetes t5' e alth I at
Strength of the AalmaL
In well-formed horses the tail should
be strong at the root, rising high from
the croup, the direction of which it fol
lows. When this is horizontal the tail
is gracefully carried, especially when
the horse is plowing. With a power
ful, good-shaped horse it is often car
ried upward, or even curved over the
back, especially when the horse is
lively. The health and strength of
the animal are. according to popular
notions, indicated by the resistance
the tail offers to manual interference
and by the way in which it is carried.
To some extent also it affords an indi
cation of the horse's disposition.
A fidgety horse usually has the tail,
like the ears, always in motion; when
about to kick the tail is drawn down
ward between the legs; when the ani
mal is fatigued or exhausted then it is
drooping and frequently tremulous;
and with some horses, when galloping,
it is swung about in a circular manner
or lashed from side to side. There can
scarcely be any doubt also that, like
the tail of birds, it assists in the horse's
movements, as when the animal is gal
loping in a small circle or rapidly
around a corner it is curved to the in
With well-bred horses the hair of
the tail is comparatively fine and
straight, and often grows to such a
length that it reaches the ground;
coarse-bred horses may also have the
hair long, but then it is usually vsry
thick and strong and more or hiss
frizzly, though soft, curly hair may oc
casionally be noticed in the tail of
thoroughbred horses. In some horses
there is a tendency to shedding of the
tail hair (this, like that of the mane,
tail, forelock, fetlocks, and some other
parts, is permanent, and not shed at
certain seasons, as in other regions of
the body); the horse is then said to be
"rat-tailed," and there is a popular
saying to the effect that such a horse
is never a bad one. In other instannes
the tail hair falls off, except at the
end of the dock, where it forms a tuft,
and the horse is then "cow-tailed" ow

severe and extensive burninlg, ased
by boiling water. o80 deep was the la
jury that the healingl process wu
greatly delayed. The petent's fat
ly objected to skia-grafting, wbheb
seemed to be the only way to aeeles'
ate the process of recovery, and the
doctor, as an experiment, appHsed the
internal membrane of the hea's egg
the white Alm with which everybody
is familiar. The lajury must have
progressed beyond the suppust-ie
stage, and shown sigans 'of bealthy
healing. A freshly laid egg is broken
and the membrane immediately at
into narrow strips and lad earefully
scroam the raw surface, then aatlsep
tie dresaings are applied with earboli
solutions, and the whole is eoered by
tin-foil. In a anumber of eases this
procedure has been eminently satisfaa
