guess a man wouldn't turn his head—
unless it was to keep from looking at
me.
Then why don't I Just keep fixed up
all the time? Because I don't have
time. When a girl gets up at four,
gets breakfast, milks five cows, puts
out a big washing, gets dinner, churns,
does the ironing, gets supper and then
mows the yard while she's resting,
there's not much time for poiuping
your hair. And when I saw I couldn't
work and keep pretty, both, I chose
to work. And I never worried anything
about it—not till I met Isaac.
He's a school teacher, and an awful
flue scholar, too. He graduated from
common branches, and he's spent two
whole terms in the county normal.
Ha's been teaching district school for
seven years now—every year in a dif­
ferent place.
He talks a whole lot about his "pro­
fession," and about "the child," and
the f'%mid's mental growth," and "id?
tellectual processes," and a lot of other
things I can't understand. He's told
me, too,, that it takes a great deal of
cou 'age for a mao to recognize his af­
finity—whatever that means—among
the lower classes, yrhen his calling in
life js to be a brain worker and a great
leader among men.
Atd, besides being a school teacher,
he's the most finicky fellow I ever
went with. They say it takes him fif­
teen minutes to comb his hair, and he
can't put on his hat without a looking
glass. When I get into a big stew of
worl I forget all about how I look,
but I,jaac never gets so deep in as
that. Last summer, when help was so
scare* here in the country, and the
men iust working their heads off to
get harvesting done, and Isaac was
sitting around at home studying intel­
lectual processes, John Winters here,
that's the woman's man I work for,

Isaac helped one forenoon. And they

I went with him all the next winter,
and* by spring he was coming here
twice a waek regular. I used to spend
nearly two hours beforehand getting
ready for him, and he would just take
spells ove»- my—my—looks but all
the time I felt kind of uneasy.
At last one night when he was try­
ing to mak» me promise him, sure, I
just up and says:
"Isaac," says I, "you don't know me.
You think I'm pretty, and I'm not."
"Why aren't you pretty, Matilda?"
says he. (He always says "aren't"
and "isn't.") "Haven't you the most
beautiful hair that was ever on a
woman's head? Isn't your skin like
the petals of a lily? Aren't your teeth
like pearls?"
"No, sir," says I, "they ain't! It
takes me half an hour to do up my
hair so it looks like it's naturally fluf­
fy. Theso pearls you're talking about
most of 'em cost three dollars apiece,
and my lily skin comes out of a cold

ute, but at last he says
"Well, Matilda, even if your bodily
cbarms are not all—er—real, those of
your character are. And love,. Matil-:
da, fs not dependent on the physical.
Love is a spiritual thing. It is a com­
munion of souls."
That all sounded nice, but still I
didn't feel just right about it But I
told him I'd give him an answer the
next afternoon when he was to come
and take me out buggy-riding.
I didn't sleep much that night. It
seemed ..to me I had come to the place
where the path divided, and I couldn't
tell..which way I was going to travel.
At last I made up my mind what I was
going to do to decide the matter. It
was pretty tough on me, but I felt it
wa| my. duty.
The next day I went to work clean­
ing iiouse. 'After I had cleaned and
scrubbed two rooms the forenoon was
atibtit gone, and I saw the floors
wouldn't be dry enough, for the carpets
before night, so I put on the boiler
and, went.to washing. Isaac was to be

first time that day, I took 'time to go
and look in the glass.
I was a sjght. My hair wasn't like
the heroine's in a stdry. You know,
when their hair gfetB- damR it aigrfiys
curls up into little clinging tendrils.
Well, mine don't. And, when I saw
myself standing there in my wretched
old wrapper, with my stringy hair, and
face covered with what Isaac calls
presperation, I felt like 'fleeing as a
bird to the mountain. But 1 didn't I
just went back to my Washing.
Prompt at three o'clock Isaac drove
up to the fence. I could see him from
the window, with his gloves on and
gold-rimmed glasses, and. collar stand­
ing way up around his ears. When
the children came a-racing through
the house to tell me he had come I
just said, calmly, "Bring him out
here."
Pretty soon in came Isaac. I couldn't
see' him very plain for 4 minute
through the steam, and for a minute
he didn't speak. At last he says, in
the funniest voice:
"What does this mean?"
"It just means I'm kind of busy this
afternoon," says I, as I picked up a
pile of dirty clothes off of a chair and
offered him a seat. "How do you like
my lily complexion to-day, Isaac?"
"I'm sure—I don't understand," he
says. "I feel kind of stunned."
"You'd better feel stunned before
you're married than afterwards," says
I. "I don't-think any man ought to

says I, kind of cautious, "I'm afraid
you'd have to find me in the kitchen
over a wash-tub more than once 8
week."
Then he got mad. "Even if you
should have to work at manual labor,'
says he, "you can maintain your per
sonal appearance," says he.
"Oh, well," says I, as I started a
sheet through the wringer, "what's th€
difference? Love does not depend or
the physical. Love's a spiirtual thing
Isaac. It's a communion of souls."
Well, sir, he just give me one long
shuddering look, then he lit out ol
that kitchen and out to his buggy and
went away. That was three weeks ago
and I ain't seen him since.
If ever a man comes along that'll
tell me, over a wash-tub, that he loves
me, I'll know he's got the real goods—
and I'm ready for him.

HEALTH EXERasES
Home exercise is within the finan^
cial reach ,Qt all, and it only a few"
minutes each day are devoted to it,
not only health, but a symmetrical
form will be the result.
In the exercises given there is no
special preparation to be made, ex­
cept to remove all tight-fitting cloth­
ing it would be practlcal-*if a skirt is
worn to have it short.
The exercise should be indulged in
after one has disrobed preparatory to
retiring. If there is a tendency to­
ward insomnia one will find the move­
ments conducive to sound and refresh­
ing sleep.
The position for beginning the first
exercise pictured is, one leg kneeling,
while the other leg is extended for­
ward, with the foot resting flat upon
the floor, the trunk to occupy the erect
position, and the arms stretched up­
ward.
Begin the action by bending the
trunk slowly backward, carry the
arms, which must be kept parallel
with the head and trunk, as far back­
ward as possible.
Hold this backward position a few
seconds and then slowly resume the
commencing one.
This action may be repeated four or
six times, then reverse the position of
the legs and repeat the above action.
The effect of this action is far-reach­

Vigorous Rub&njB of Body After Bath
R|commendedb .^ 4
There is no greater sedative to the
nerves thah to -indulge in vigorous rub­
bing of the body'dally.
Of course, it is- luxurious to afford a
masseuse, but it is almost as beneficial
if one will rub oneself, either with the
hand, With a Turkish towel, or with
long strips of flannel.
The best time to do the rubbing is,
directly after the bath. Any part of
the body that cannot be reached by the

parts acted on are strengthened.
If you should desire a more vigorous
exercise, weights held in the uplifted
hands will give it.
The second action is one which
should be faithfully practiced by every
woman who has*a tendency to stout-:
ness about the waist. While1 this ihove
ment calls into powerful action all the
muscles of the sides, it strengthens
the chest and abdomen, and as a waist
reducer there never was a better one.
The position is a standing one with
one leg in advance of the other, in
walking position one arm is in
"stretch" over "head while the hand of
the ether arm rests at the side.
In the above position begin action
by slowly twisting the trunk toward
the right side as illustrated. After hav­
ing twisted the trunk well around,
bend sidewise at right angles with the
trunk—as far as possible, then slowly
assume an upright and front position.
Repeat this action four or five times to
begin with, increasing it in later exer­
cises.
After having exercised as above de­
scribed, reverse position of arms and
legs and repeat exercise.
If one is exceedingly stout or stiff,
more energy may be given by placing
the hand on the hip of the advanced
leg—thus more force is given to the
bending with the hand resting on the
hip.
PRETTIER THAN FERN DISHES.
Glass Bask** Make Most Effective
Table-'Oecorations.
Nothing makes a prettier table
decoration than to own five of the
glass baskets with handles that can
be found now quite reasonably in the
stores.
The broad mouths of these baskets
allow the flowers to spread gracefully
and without stiffness.
Of course, they come in handsome
cut-glass or rock crystal, but those of
colonial glass, either plain or with a
gilt rim, are lovely and quite inex­
pensive.
If one cannot afford to buy flowers
for these baskets for the winter they
might be planted with Wandering Jew
or nasturtiums or some of the aquatic
plants, like parrots feather or water
hyacinth. These grow in water, trail
over the sides or else stand above the
surface, thus giving a dainty bit of
green through several months that is
more novel than the omnipresent fern
dish.
The water, of course, must be filled
up as it evaporates and should have
pieces of charcoal in it to keep it from
getting stagnant.
Turban Effects Popular in Paris.
Turban effects are well considered
in Paris. This was launched in mid­
winter by a Russian grand duchess,
but as the Russian turban looks best
in fur, the Spanish turban is being
launched as the spring favorite. This
is of large size for a turban, and is
lifted by a bandeau slightly at the
left side. The turban will undoubtedly
be accepted in this country this spring,
but not to the extent the postillion
and allied, shapes will be.
Embroidered Flounces.
Robes and box-suits in cottons, ba­
tistes, linens and other such fabrics
promise that skirts belonging to them
are to have one embroidered bottom
flounce, with a series of narrow edge
embroidered ruffles, clustered in rows
above, as a heading, while bodice and
half-sleeves show the same ruffles or
trimming.—Vogue.
Inexpensive Band.
A new hat for a child of ten is
shown simply trimmed with a deep
band of wide ribbon on which are ap
pliqued several large roses cut from
cretonne and fastened on with an

HALLMAN, ATTACKED BY
ANIMAL, BATTLES VAINLY
FOR HIS LIFE.
AX HANDLE HIS
ONLY
,'EAFON
Is Trampled to Death as Help Arrives
—Brute Breaks Out^of Pen and
Runs Wild Through the
Fields.
Chicago.—Armed only with an ax
handle, Frank Hallman, a farmhand,
fought for his life with a maddened
bull on. the. farm of C. G. Besley, at
Park Ridge, the other afternoon.
For 15 minutes the unequal battle
waged, both man and beast using all
the cunning in their make-up to win
a victory, and then the man, exhausted
from exertion and loss of blood, fell
unconscious at the feet of the animal
to be gored to death and tossed over
a fence at the feet of fellow workmen
who had come to his assistance.
Gladiatorial contests in the heyday
of the old Roman empire, when
trained warriors went forth to do bat­
tle with wild beasts, were hardly mote
dramatic than this fight on the lonety
farm, where the combatants -were
alone, eaeh sparring for the telling
blow, the bull charging, the man dodg­
ing, with horn and hoof pitted against
human ingenuity and a hickory stick,
and each contestant fighting to the
death.
The bull, a huge Durham, was
known to be a dangerous animal, and
•was kept tied to a' stake in a small in
closure. The other day the hemp fell
from the iron ring in the beast's nose,
and with a rush he crashed through
the fence that lay between him and
liberty.
Gaining his freedom,. he ran ram­
pant through the fields,' chasing cat­
tle, horses, and chickens to shelter
and destroying everything that lay in
his path.
Hallman, wearing a red flannel shirt,
passed across the lot as the bull was
bellowing in triumph on a little hil-

lock. The bright color caught the ani­
mal's eye, and with tail in air and
head to the ground he charged upon
the farmhand at full tilt.
Hallman stood as if riveted to the
spot, the ax handle poised over his
shoulder. As the beast bore down
upon him he jumped nimbly to one
side and brought his crude weapon
with all the force at his command
down, on the head of the animal.
The blow served only to further en­
rage the beast, and, wheeling about,
he again charged full upon Hallman.
Another nimble jump and another fall
of the ax handle met this second on­
slaught. The man's aim was untrue
and the stick only struck the tip of the
animal's horn.
The bull wheeled about, planted his
fore feet in the soft earth, threw his
head high in the air, bellowed a fierce
challenge of defiant rage, lowered his
horns for the third attack, and again
charged on the little man, who stood
bravely awaiting the onslaught.
Charge after charge was repeated in
those few minutes, until the man fell
helpless to the ground.
By this time other farm hands, at­
tracted by the bellowing of the ani­
mal, came to the pasture and
ran to the assistance of Hallman,
but before they reached the fence that
separates the field of combat from the
orchard, the animal advanced to the
prostrate man, drove one of his sharp
horns into his temple, and then, toss­
ing the body at the feet of the would
be rescuers, scampered off across the
fields.
Hallman's body was taken to the
asylum morgue at Dunning, and the
bull was corralled by five men and re­
turned to his pen.
Woman Chokes Coyote.
The savage nature of the coyotea
that abound in the hills about the
Wingfleld ranch at Warner lake, about
35 miles east of here, was shown by
an attack1a'band of the hungry beasts

The coyotes made a rush on thei
chickens, and, in order to frighten

TRAPPER- Fl NENt 4$! IMAL jhlCON^
SCIOUS UNDER 'fREB AFTER
FIGHT tilTH CANINE.
Helena, Mont—Frank Sedlak oi
Flathead county gives a most interest­
ing account of an adventure which his
dog had with a mountain lion, and
which? he managed to capture alive
after a chase lasting three nights and
two days.
While going over his line of traps
he missed one of his dogs, and after
a long search he camp -to the con­
clusion that he had bee®r killed ^and
devoured by a mountain lion.
While returning home he heard a
howling quite a distance from the
trail. He whistled and soon brought
the missing dog to-hiri! The appear-'
ance of the dog at once indicated that
fl
A Battle Royal.
something unusual had been going on
wherever the dog had been.
Instead of going home, he followed
the dog over the trail the animal had
made in coming to him after being
called by the whistle. The dog led
him to a big tree at which there was
lying a young mountain lion with
which the dog had evidently had a
tussle. The lion had every appearance
of being dead and showed the marks
of the dog's teeth upon his neck. Sed­
lak supposed the lion was dead and
was making arrangements to carry
him home when the animal gave
signs of restoration of life, and re­
covered so rapidly that he had to act
very, quickly in order to get a rope
wound around him.
He at once conceived the idea of
Capturing the lion alive, and with this
object succeeded in getting it to his
cabin, at which place he made the lion
fast in the stable.
For four days the lion refused to
eat anything and evidently rebelled at
its captivity. However, on the fifth he
ate everything which was given to
him, and has apparently recovered
from the, fight with the dog.
From the indications around the
tree Mr. Sedlak thinks the dog had
been fighting with the lion which he
captured alive and also that there was
another lion in the tree during that
time, and that as soon as the dog left
to answer the call of the whistle the
lion which was up the tree came down
and got away.
This is one of the few instances
on record where a live lion has been
taken, and if the dog had been en­
gaged in the struggle as long as his
master thinks he had been, it must
have been a battle royal.
GUARDS HUBBY WITH GUN.
Bride of Seventy Defies Her Relatives
to Separate Them.
Meriden, Conn.—To prevent her rel­
atives from separating her from her
husband, who is 30 years her junior,
Mrs. Samuel A. Mallory, a bride of
70, has intrenched herself in her farm­
house at East Lyne, with a shotgun
trained on the approach to drive back
constables who are seeking to serve
papers in a suit for the annulment of
her marriage. So far none of them
has tempfed fate by crossing the line,
and Mrs. Mallory is in possession of
her husband.
The annulment suit was brought by
Fred Leeds of Preston, who alleges
Mallory became the fourth husband of
his sister, not because he cherished
any affection for her, but because he
had a covetous eye on the $25,000 for­
tune she possessed. When it became
known that Mallory and the widow
were to marry strong efforts were
made to prevent it, but without suc­
cess.
Although the prospective bride was
nearly twice as old as her prospective
husband, both of them declared the af­
fair was a love match, pure and sim­
ple, and that they would brook no in­
terference with their plans. So they
were married and would be living hap­
pily were not so. much of the bride's
time occupied in defending herself
against the constables.
The Mad and Murderous Pace.
In the New York health department
reports for 1907 two items stand out
with unpleasant prominence, the 7,237
deaths from organic heart disease and
the 4,914 violent deaths. The former
reflects' the mad driving of the human
body under the excitement of our
high-speed existence the latter if a
grewsome reminder of the disregard
of Americans for their, own lives. Of
the 4,914 deaths by violence only 284
were hoiniddes and 711 suicides.
Nearly 4,000 citizens, then, were
slaughtered by street cars, factory
wheels, trucks, tenement house fires
and other sanctioned methods Sof ex*
termination! A comparison of thiw
record with that of otter large cities:
would surely put New York at the
very bottom of the list. Where else
is a good-sized village obliterated by
accidents every twelvemonth?

The
General Demand
of the Well-Informed of the World has
always been for a simple, pleasant and
efficient liquid laxative remedy of known
value a laxative which physicians could
sanction for family use because its com­
ponent parts are known to them to be
wholesome and truly beneficial in effect,
acceptable to the system and gentle, yet
prompt, in action.
In supplying that demand with its ex­
cellent combination of Syrup of Figs and
Elixir of Senna, the California Fig Syrup
Co. proceeds along ethical lines and relies
on the merits of the laxative for its remark­
able success.
That is one of many reasons why
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is given
the preference by the Well-informed.
To get its beneficial effects always buy
the genuine—manufactured by the Cali­
fornia Fig Syrup Co., only, and for sale
by all leading druggists. Price fifty cents
per bottle.
