THE EDIT0B'SW00IN% E editor had lighted his cigar just as Jthe level was fclimmering through his by no means a oulate 's an ctum windows, in dicating that the glorious orb of day, somewhat obscured in fog and met ropolitan smoke, was about to dis appear behind, not exactly the western hills/ but what came to the same thing in a city, the western roois and chimney tops. *Karl Rubens, the editor of the Weekly Shiner, was a tall, bright looking man of thirty years, one of those individuals whose veryfaceand features indicate that they are born to conquer destiny. He had been very successful through life, but it was because he had demanded suc cess with a courageous persistency that would not be denied. Brown haired, with careless, wavy locks, drooping low upon his forehead, and dark-brown eyes, verging upoa black, he was not handsome, yet the eye rested with pleasure upon his face* and in his light editorial coat some what worn at the elbows and shiny at the seams, and the velvet cap, tas seled and braided with gold, he looked every inch the chivarlous anad tfirank hearted American. Or, we imiight phrase it "gentleman," did we not secretly believe that the former title is far the nobler and move compre hensive of the two. As we said before, Mr. Rubens "was just drawing the first fragrant mha'a tion of his imported Havana, Karl was particular in the choice of his cigars, when the door opened softly, and a beautiful young lady Tustled in a young lady whom he had met a score of times the gas-lighted draw ing-rooms of "society," whose beauty he had worshiped afar off, and whom he unconsciously associated in his mind with diamonds pearly silks and tulle draperies, tooped iup with ihot house flowers. He sta,rted'up,*colonng and thrust ing nis weed behind a ,pile of ''ency clopedias." "Miss Amslie1" "Am I interrupting -you, Mr. Ru bens?" -she asked, sottly. "Interrupting me' Nottinthe least in the woild, fact, I feel very much •honored by—by—please takea^chair." And Kail tipped a heap yet un-stance, scissored newspapers oft the nearest chair and drew 1 0 eageily forward. Blanche Amslie-sat down, her ipale blue silk dress subsiding round her like the billows of a sapphire sea. .Blanche Ainshe was veryihandsome, 'With azure eyes, and bright, chesbnut brown hair, while her complexion, al though rather pale, was clear as ivory, and her leatures were as 'delicate as if she had been a Greek girl in the dav-s of old Praxiteles^ While Karl unconsciously noted -these things in his mind he was (mar veling inwardly what lucky chance •had procured him this visit. Did she imean to myite hma ft© one of "theground soirees -of her uncle, "tJhe rich .©Id broker, or was some surprise party •on the tapie-, too exclusive i&sv theor dinaiy medium of cards or -scented paper-9 For Mr. Rubens rather prided 'himself upon the entmeedae was begin ning to gam within the -enchanted portals of New York society. Almost at the same moment Blanche looked up "iou are wondering what ibriuags a»e ihere."^he said, ha.lt-Biian.iil.img. "Whatever it was, 1 cam bout than'k the opportunity," Karl answered, with prompt galantry, aJhfcJaough be :ould ieel the tell-tale blood rising to his cheek. "Asnol I may as well tell yotui the whole tnuth at once," said Blaraehe, her voice faltering slightly, and two red spots glowing out upon Oaer temples. 'My uncle George failed last wee^, acd we are going to be very poor." "Failed!" echoed Karl, "Surely it cannot be possible—at least that is, I had not heard of it!'* M: S But it is trmo, nevertheless," Muff Amshe said "and all the world will know of it but too "soon. And, Mr. Ruben=-," she added,in a more hesitat ing voice, ''I must do%something for my own support—either teach, sew play companion to an invalid lady, or earn my living in some way not unbefitting a gentleman's daughter and I have concluded to try and write tor the papers. "Indeed'" said Karl, not knowing what else to say. *'WJ11 yea give me a chance in the columns of the Shifier?"* she asked, with a very evident effort. believe I could write as good stories as some of those that yoa publish and pay for." Mr. Rubens was" sorely puzzled what to say. How could he tell this pretty creature sitting there before bum, in the halo of her j-outh and beauty and high social position that she could no more hope to succeed as a sketch writer tiian a man could ex pect to build a house or construct a steam-engine without an hour of practice or experience? Had she been a shabby, spectacled old lady, or a middle agedfema'e, withcottongloves, and high cheek bones, it would have been easy enough. As it was, her blue eyes, shining wistfully into his, seemed to paralyze the very nerves of his tongue. $& "I have got°a little sfcoryT*nere," went on Blanche, producing a neatly folded packet, "which I have worked very hard upon, and—it you would kindly look at it, and give me your unprejudiced opinion "Certainly," said Karl, recovering his self-possession, and bowing as he took the packet. "There are some verses, too," said Blanche, reddening, "and a little es say or two, written as spicily as pos sible. Shall I come tomorrow and get your opinion?" "By no means." said Mr. Rubens, politely. "I will not trouble you to come down to this unfashionable locality. If you will allow me to call and see you "I shall be so much obliged!" said Miss Ainshe eagerly, and Karl knew that she meant it. Blanche Ainshe went away, leaving an intangible little scent of at^ar of roses behind her— ind the sun dipped down behind the chimney tops, and the sanctum became dark 'and gloomy all at once. "How pretty she is!" Karl Rubens thought "but pshaw! the idea of her writing for the papers! Poor child how little idea she has of the life that lies before her. However, I will take the papers to Di, and see what she says about 'em." Miss Diana Rubens was a strong* minded young Jady, of a certain age, who read Carlyle, translated Hebrew, kept house for her brother, and did nearly as much of the "heavy work" of the Weekly Shiner as did the editor himself. "Fiddlesticks!" said Miss Diana, as her brother, over Ais evening cup of tea, tossed the manuscripts toward her, and related his story. "Little Blanche Ainshe could no more write for the paper than mv canary bird! But every woman thinks she's a born authoress, and nothing but per sonal experience will grind the idea out of them'" Then Miss Diana read the neatly written pages one by one. "Scented with rose," she said, scornfully. "Stuff and nonsense!" "Well?" said Karl, at last, looking •up from his own writing, as Miss Di ana laid the packet down with a loud "Hem'" which signified the completion of her task. "Fiddlesticks!" was the brief yet sig nificant reply. Karl rubbed his nose with the end of his pen-stick, evidently a little dis appointed. '"You think they won't do?" said he. "Of course they won't'" said Miss Di. "Dishwater and adjectives— trash and sentiment—wnat are the girls thinking of nowadays? If she had sent me a few eood table recipes now, or away ot cleaning marble, or taking out mildew but an impossible love story, with the hero on stilts and the heroine mere milk and water. Pshaw'" "Poor child'".said Karl compas sionately—but he never once thought of an appeal from his sister's deci sion. "Ani she was so sure of suc cess'" -"They always are'" said Miss Di. Karl Rubens was a little provoked at his strong-minded sister, but he re membered, as a palliating circum that Miss Diana had never seen Blanche Amslie. The editor did not sleep very soundly that night. He couldnothelp thinking of the beautiful girl so sud denly reduced rrom luxury and wealth ito utter poverty, and when at last he fell asleep, it was to dream of blue eyes, and chestnut hair braided with shitting lights of gold. Karl had always admired the broker's niece from a respectable dis tance. Now it seemed as if were fairer and more attractive than ever. In tact our editor, although ho was not lullv aware of.it himself, was hov -errag dangerously near the magic of love. He called at Mrs. AinshV-* the next evening with the -condemned manu scripts his pocket, and I do believe had the not stood iin righteous fear of his strong-minded sister Diana, he would have told Miss Ainshe that her productions weire* "accepted," and secretly burned them in the sanctum fire. As it was, it was too late tor any such sly system of double dealing. Blanche was at home, sitting among the splendor that -was to be hers so brief a time now, and her bright, up ward look, a3 he entered, went to his «very heart. "I feel like Croo'kbadk Richard,"* fee thought, "going to muirder the mno (Gent little princess in ithe Tower." And when he told her.fxs gently as lie (Could, that the stories and poetry would not pass muster* «he burst in to tears. Mr. Rubens could not fiqdure those bxieitt, sparkling drops. "Blanche'" iae faltered, ^don't cry. Dear Blanche, dt is not worth it!" And before tfoey parted that eve siing, Blanche Afnshe had half ncom ised to consider the possibility of ac cepting the editor's love, suace the editor could not .accept her contri butions. "The idea oc supporting yourself is very ridiculous," said Kail. "It's great deal better to let me support you." And so Blanche Ainslie became ai» editor's wife, and the happiest of lit tle matrons, and to this 'day Kail keep* the little packet that was *y& spectmlly declined^ 1 EAXOkUELD iM.GABBp: INFORMATfON ON MATTERS OF" INTEREST TO THE FARMER, Breeding Saddle Horses—The De mand for Younsr Mutton—Pure ^-ater Necessary to Insure ^5. Pure Milk—Various Pointers* TSreHllrig Saddle Worses, We were talking a few days ago with a horse dealer in New York who han dles fourteen or fifteen thousand horses every year, and among other things he said: "There is a growing demand for sad dle horses in the market, but there isn't one horse in a thousand that passes for a saddle horse that's wor thy of the name. The great point about a saddle horse is fine action. He wants to.be showy—to have style. A variety of gaits is, of course desir able, but it's action that counts in selling him." What our friend meant by "action" comprised in reality the7 entire build and make-up of the animal. Carriage horses have action, too, but they are constructed on different lines frpm a saddle horse, as an "ocean greyhound" is built on different lines from a I S But his remarks suggest that here is a field that farmers who want to breed for a good market might culti vate with profit. The cubtom of riding has received a great impetus in the North within* a lew years past* It is coming to be a favorite pastime with both sexes, and a very delight ful, exhilarating and healthful pas time it is. Not only in city parks and on country roads but "across" country" with hounds, in hot pursuit of the "aniseseed bag," is this ac complishment practiced with zest and enjoyment. Once generally established, this riding mania is not likely to die out in a hurry, for, although it may have something of the "fashionable fad" about it in the minds of some of its votaries, it, is too deeply grounded in common sense to be easily relin quished. The man who can raise the exceptional one in a thousand will, therefore, not be likely to fail ot his reward. A horse, it has been well said, will not make a saddle horse to-day and a harness horse to-morrow. His life is too short to learn any two things perfectly, and the means used to train him for the saddle neutralize his proficiency for the carriage. But in fact, the fitness of a horse for the saddle antedates any training to which he may be subjected. Like the poet he is born, not made* He must come of a saddle horse breed. A true saddle hocse is a .peculiar specimen of his race. He is, as an en thusiastic horse man puts it'""the em bodiment of all that is great and grand in the equine nature—in his breeding, shape, figure, symmetry, quality, muscle, bone,durability,met tle, endurance, temper, disposition, instincts, style, actioan. intellect .and pluck, all of which require to be of the first order, for he has many things to learn in thespaoe-of -eome five years, when he must be aisle to master his profession before he gets too stiff to please." The same writer adds, which every true horseman must heartily feel: "When we occasionally see a born saddle horse, or the material for one, we follow him with covetous ej'es, and wonder if he ever went to school and it his owner ikmowswhat he has got." It does nottake many hours' watch ing in the Park to satisfy one that the number of born saddle horses in New Yorkis not large. A good many fair ly good carriage horses are spoiled in trying to make nding horses of them, perhaps this is unavoidable, so long as the supply, like Sam Weilev's "wis ion," is limited but it shows how large a field is open for those who know, or will take the pains to learn, how to breed for the saddle as well as for the carriage, the farm and theraee course. Mutton. The Demand for Young We have heard wonder expressed that iat sheep have enjoyed so good an average market for along time of years as compared with other stock, and that a, season in which mutton making is not profitable is a rare ex ception. We think a leading reason for this is that a very large propor tion of all the sheep going into con sumption are marketed quite young. .There are no data available to show what propoition p® totheblockatthe age of one year or under 'but it is a very large proportion, and one which is constantly itincreasing. A great per centage ot the increase of flocks from year to year is thus eut off from pro ducing further increase, and goes at once into the food supplies of the coun try. There is occasionally something of an increase infiock totals one year as compared with another, but the in crease does not keep pace with the growth of population. Another influ ence probably affieetmg this somewhat is that wh«£ Ameiiea&s have never been great consumers of mutton the appetite for this meat has steadily grown since the tendency has been developed to market stock so young. Lamb is very largely preferred to mutton, and lamb Hhas become a staple market article in many places where the flesh of sheep was hardly an item of consequence in market a. half generation ago. For the reasons stated we have no uneasiness on the score of production continuing to be reasonably profitable for years to come.—National Stockman. Pure Water Necessary to Insure Pure Milk. In every gallon of milk, there is "at least seven pints of water, a fact in itself sufficient to convice one that ^oo&milk cannot be obtained from an impure water supply, and that a shortage in quantity will be attended by an immediate and corresponding diminution of the flow indeed, it would seem that the importance of water as an element in milk produc tion is represented by the faction rep resenting its value as a constitutent, says J. B. Harris in Farm Journal. Some people seem to th nk that na ture made the cow a filter or rectify ing apparatus,into which any amount of stale, unwholesome and impure water may be introduced -with im punity, but the experienced cheese maker knows better. Jnthe course of an extended experience as a cheese instructor in Canada, Scotland and the United States, the writer of this article has met with more diffi culty from bad water than from any other cause. It is a fact that in nine tenths of the pasture througout the dairy belt there are low places, swamps and frog ponds, at which, in the course of the season, the cows are compelled to resort to quench their thirst. This ought not to be. No prudent dairyman will permit his dairy to drink at these places. They should always be filled up or fenced out ahd an abundant supply of pure, living water be furnished at whatever cost. It requires from 1 to Sllbs. more of swamp water milk to pro duce a pound of cheese than it does of pure water milk, and it always en genders gaseous eqr&ja^d^eejse, loathsome flavor.ISM A Remarkaple Croo of Potatoes. A very remarkable experience in growing potatoes is Reported from La Rochelle, France, which we take the liberty of accepting with some grains of allowance., ^The statement is made that the crop grown amounted to 42 tons of tubers per acre, which is from 1,400 to 1,568 bushels, de-, pending on whether tons were "short" tons of 2,000 pounds or "long" tons ol 2,240 pounds. We are hardly prepared to believe in such a crop, but the plan by which it is alleged to have been done is given in full and is worth toying. The French potato grower gives the soil deep tillage, selects sound seed potatoes of moderate size, plants them whole and manures liberally. Plenty, of people have done all that without getting a 1,500 bushel crop. The only thing besides which the La Rochelle man did was to steep the seed potatoes for 24 hours in 25 gal lons of water to which six pounds otthe sulphate ot ammonia and six pounsd of the nirate of potash had been added. After the seed had been steeped in the solution for 24 hours, they were taken out and lett for 24 hours before planting, to permit the germs to swell. The stimulating effect of the bath is the agency to which the marvelous yield is attributed. It is a big yield, and only a trial will determine which it is. An Experiment in Corn Growing. At several experimental stations lastr 'year trials were made of the result from depriving every al ternate row of corn of its tassels. In every case the trail showed an increase of grain on the row from which the tassels were removed. Nature has un doubtedly given the corn plant far more pollen in its tassels than is need ed to perfect the seed. It had to do so, because as nature plants corn it usually puts one grain in a place. Under such conditions probably not one-twentieth of the pollen would fall on the silk, and if there ^ere mueh wind at the time much less than that. Now corn is plauted in rows and hills so that each hill helps to fertilize others. It is well worthy of experiment to find how many of these stalks can be deprived ot their tassels and leave enough pollen to fertilize the crop. If there is a little lessi than needed it will probably result in better seed, the fertilized grams crowdin« over into the spaces that have missed their pollen, and thus producingr.ound well developed grains, instead of those usually compressed in the the ear. Advantage of Sugar middle ot Beet Cultiva- One great point of advantage to farmers in the cultivation of the sugar beet 13 that they have, in advance of the planting of the crop an absolute guarantee of his market and price. Tms removes many ot the elements of uncertainty which surround the gen eral operations of the farm. If the cultivation of the beet is Avell under stood the gi'ower may reckon with considerable certainty upon the cash value of the crop from a given number of acres. Mout the only unknown quantity for which he must make al lowance will be the state of the weath er, and where irrigation is practiced, as it will be in many beet growing dis tricts, this matter also will be pretty ^ell under control ot the farmer.? *&® UpSome ShortRows« Mk^4 Pounded bone, as large as grains of maize, is good for fowls.
