"Liberia is the paradise of mothers-in law," said Miss Agnes McAllister, the author of "A Lone Woman in Africa," who has been for the past twelve years in charge of the Garraway Mission, Li beria. "A woman can command the services of her sons-in-law for certain duties, and it matters not what their other obligations are, they must obey her. For that reason daughters are exceeding ly desirable possessions among Liberiuns. "When a child is born some member of the family is sent at once to the devil doctor to inquire who it is and what its name shall be. He goes up into the house top, taking with him a cow horn. This he blows to call the devil, and the devil is supposed to tell who it is that has come back into the world. For the peo ple believe that every new-born child is some deceased member of the family who has returned to life among them. It sometimes receives the same name it had before, and sometimes the name is changed. "A young mother is never permitted to have the care of her child, an older woman being called in.

They will rub one finger in the pepper on the board, then thrust it as far down the child's throat as possible, and mas sage and stretch the throat thorougnly until the poor little creature is almost strangled and throws up all that is in iis stomach. The wretched infant is thtn laid down to sleep on its little mat on the floor by the fire. "When a child Is nine to ten months old small bells are titd to its person at its wrists, waist and ankles. These are Intended to coax it to walk. The mother then takes it to a devil doctor, who makes a charm, which she ties about its waist. But often I have seen children without eveir these charms, and when I asked for an explanation I was told that ] the child was supposed to be some one who had returned from the spirit world only to rind articles to carry back.

They were wise in their day and genera tion, were Aunt Lucy Favorsham and her married sister, Miranda Burr. They had all the feminine maxims by heart, and repeated them often, being incurably loquacious. "Make up your mind to this, Lillian," Mrs. Burr would say to her daughter. "It is as easy for a girl to love a rich man as a poor one, and a great deal more sensible. I've been poor and I know what it means. You dwindle up like an acorn in a wet season. I tell your aunt often that you can't even be iiigh minded with out a little money to manage it on. Really I believe half the folks who go to hell get there because the were so poor they couldn't be good. Envy, hatted and all uncharltableness, those are the things that come from poverty. Romance doesn't last as long as a cabbage moth without some money to keep it going. But with money it's possible to get along quite agreeably i n the house with almost anybody." Miranda drew her similes from the farm life which she endeavored to for get; her maxims, on the contrary, were a tribute to the comfort of a city estab lishment, in which she endeavored, with but inuuierent success, to act the grand lady. Aunt Lucy Favorsham was a trifle more adroit in dealing with her niece than the girl's own mother was. "Books and pictures and music and the society of cultivated people—those things go with money," she said. "And liberty. That goes with money, too. It always seemed to me that a woman was no bet ter than a chattel when she had to ask a grudging husband for every cent she got. It's the humiliations and petty sac rifices which go with poverty which of fend me. But no one can know the meas ure of those who has not had experi ence." The girl at whom these remarks were directed looked somewhat wearily out of the window and saw a young man comirrg down the street. She flushed scarlet, then arose impulsively and went to meet him, catching up her hat and sunshade from the hall table as she passed. "Dick," she said, as she ran down the steps to meet him, "let's walk to Jeffer son square. I've been in all day. Don't you think the vacation is tiresome, Dick? I've been wishing and wishing today that I was back at school." The young man looked at her tenderly. "If you were back at school," he said, "I should not have the pitaeure of this walk." But the girl did not look pleased at thle obviously sincere compliment. They think about different things at school," she said. "It is better to think about history and geometery and-and that, than about " Sh.- hesitated, confused in the midst of her neurile speech. "I don't understand," he said. "No. I suppose not! I couldn't expect you to, Dirk/ with a swift change ot expression, "how do you like this gown?" "It's a pretty little gown, dear. I no ticed it the minute [ saw you. You never had it on before, did you?" "No. I made it. Do you know why? I wanted to see how I would look if 1 were a poor man's wife and made my own things. You say it is pretty,, Dick, but that's because you didn't know. It is hideous. There isn't a seam in it that's right. Everything is the matter with it, and I am never going to wear it again." Dick Underwood looked perplexed. "I dare say we'll be able to manage dressmakers," he said, somewhat doubt fully. "But how straase you ure today, dear—angry and not like yourself." "I am not going to marry you, Dick. I've made up my mind. I know you thought my answer was going to be dif ferent, but 1 have decided that it is to be no. We would wear on each other borrjbly, I know we would, if we were to be worried about—about bills, and all that. I can see just how miserable it would be. It's everything which isn't beautiful. It's hateful and common and degrading. I've been thinking it aP over " The ycung man's eyes were blazing. "No. you haven't," he denied, "you've been listening! It's your mother and your aunt who have been instructing you. And they have succeeded even i;. making you think that love is not beau tiful, have they? It seems impossible, but they've done ie, and—and If you don't mind, Lillian, I'll leave you here. You won't mind walking home alone." H b lifted his hat and turned away from her, tense and angry. "Dick! Dic-k!" The cry was involun tary and freighted with keen alarm and pain. The young- man went on down the street, not looking back. Lillian Burr walked home ami faced her mother and her aunt, white fae'ed and with lips set. "I've followed your advice," she said, accusingly. "I've turned my back on poverty." Slve went up the stairs to her own room and the women heard her turning the key in the door. "Poor child," said her mother, with a thrill of real compassion. "It's a little hard for her now." "Yes," admitted Aunt Lucy. But neith er of them ftk remorseful. They looked on themselves in the light of surgeons. That night the girl folded up the little blue frock she h.id worn and laid it away in a box. "With it she laid a bunch of letters, a withered rose and a copy of "Lucile." "What a spectacle I am making of myself," she soliloquized contemptuous ly. "Still," she reflected, "I can hardly be said to be a spectacle when there are none by to see me. It's my own fool ishness, end no one will ever know any thing about it." Two weeks later Erard Allen said to her: "I love you dearly, Lilian. I have ask ed your mother's permission to speak to you and she is quite willing." "Oh, yes," said the girl with some bit terness, "I know she is entirely willing." "And are you? Are you willing to be come my wife?" "Why not?" responded the girl, sharp ly, and the lover had to make the most he could cut of that ungracious accept ance. Mrs. Erard Allen came to be known as a brilliant and successful woman. Her beauty, her wealth, her graciousaess of manner, her hearty friendliness, and her (intelligence won a distinguished place for her.

Then, clad irr an ill-fitting blue uu2wwsm% in C®ms®..... Winnipeg Correspondence of the Ne braska State Journal. To few people is it known that Salt Lake City, in Utah, is not the only ter ritory in full and undisputed possession of the Mormons. Yet such is the caae. 1 have just returned from a visit to Alberta, where I found a big colony of the Latter Day Saints firmly established in these Northern lands. The colony in a unique and interesting one. Some time ago a couple of hundred Mormons simply "trekked" away from Salt Lake City into the Northern wilderness, and after marching TOO miles came to their present location in Alberta and settled. They soon had quite a nourishing little town. Ttady named the place Cardston. First they commenced to cut down the white firs, and, with women and children press ed into service, proceeded to erect sub stantial dwelling houses, shops, stores, a. blacksmith ship, a grist mill and saw mills. It has several unique characteristics which are original in the extreme. New "York and other large cities have tfuir rich people, who, after spending a winter of hard work in the city, leave it at the beginning of summer for the giorie3 of the summer resorts; but there is no record of the population of an entire city deserting their homes at the beginning of March and returning In October. T/hig is just what the 8,000 Mormons of Cards ton do. It is a curious custom, but as soon as the time arrives for the planting of crops the whole population move out in various directions, and, taking- up their summer residences far apart, begin industriously the pursuit of fanning. When their crops are safely housed and they have g-athered in the gleanings, their sociable nature asserts itself and they again take* up their residence in the city, where they settle down for the winter. A.s the stories of the prosperity of the new Mormon set tlement have traveled abroad, others ot their kind have arrived from Salt I^ake City and established new towns close at hand, until at present the colony consists of live to\vr>p, with the principal one, Cardston, as the capital of the entire community. Here are the names of the towns, with the number of inhabitants: Mountain View, 380; Etna, 390; Leavit, 200, and the little hamlet ot Colles, which boasts of only 25 souls. Polygamy has been entirely abolished, the men build ins homes and providing for the women wh^m they married previous to the anti polygamy laws of Utah. The colonists are very industrious and thrifty, and they are going to work with a will to make a success of their district. The surroundings would lead one to believe that they dri/am of a second Salt Lake City in Canada. The foundation is well laid and great developments must follow. In conversation with one of them he said. "This is the best country our peo ple ever possessed. We are determined to improve it, and its progress cannot De retarded. We like the laws of Canada, and are well treated by the people." The Mormons have taken a contract from the irrigation company to excavate and construct a portion of the canal, and in adding to a cash subsidy are taking a land grant which has already been se lected, amounting to 18,000 acres in two reserves of aboujt &.000 acres each. As to the fitness of these people to be come agriculturists and as to the pos sibilities that await them there is and can only be one conclusion. They are farmers and pioneers, or rather, pioneers and farmers, and pursue farming on scientific principles. It is no haphazard work with them, and all that is neces sary to demonstrate this, is to visit Card ston. Here is a district which for ye^irs remained unoccupied and was given over entirely to cattle ranches, efforts on the part of those who attempted it prov ing that mixed farming or grain raising frock, old-fashioned and frowsy, she presented herself one day at the door of a certain poor man. "Dick," she said, "I have been a wid ow for two years, and I have . waited for you to come for me, but you did not." "Lillian! Have mercy. I have resisted the temptations twenty times each day. I am almost as poor as I ever was." "I've come in the little blue dress I made, Dick. It'll do nicely for a wed ding dress, if—if you think—if you think a wedding dress is needed." He was incredulous. "It is a fantastic dream," he said. "It cannot be true that, after the mockery of endless dreams which faded as I grasped then;, you are- here, in the flesh." She threw off her hat and clasped her hands upon the table before her. - "Look at me, Dick," she commanded. "See how my eyes say 'I love you.' They look with perfect frankness and natural ness for the first time in many, many years. For the first time the tones of my voice seem to ring true to my ears. For. the first time I feel honest with my self. This is me—this woman who says 'I love you, Dick.' Of course, if you like, you can send me away. Hut I'm so poor now, and—" She pretended to look melancholy. "It must be a dream," he murmured still. But there is no harm In em bracing this dream tenderly, with many broken words, with tears which would rot fall, with all the starved heart's un utterable hunger. could only be successluily followed in a few localities. When the advance guard of the Mor mons arrived the stake selected was far from other settlements, and today is ov r fifty miles from a railway. With long hauls to market operating against them, the colony continued to yrow until they are prospering, with schgnls and churches open the year round, and the land be ing worked and crops successfully raised The universal statement of the settlers was that it was a choice location. Farms on the hillsides and in the valleys "were producing splendidly. Having been brought under, a hißh state of cultivation by inigation in pome parts, the rainfall in others bein;? suffic ient, all manner of grains, roots and vegetables are grown, and in comperiii'.:: with those raised hi other portions or" the district they always have beep suc cessful. Every fanner has a large of horses and rattle, and evidences of prosperity seem to exist everywhi The soil i 3 good, bi :!ipt a brown loam with a clay subsoil: It is an open coun try, without timber, but is we!! watered with rivers, and the river bottoms are filled with a light growth of po and much of this has been destroyed by Ores. The country is high and roiling to the west, and many pockets are found among the hills that have good natural hay meadows. I saw some places on the river bottoms where there waa suffic ient timber to make good shelter for stock, cut into the banks alcove like, and well wooded. To the east the country is more un dulating and nit so hilly. The soil shows better on the surface. It is conceded at Oardston that ad jacent to and near the foothills small grains can be successfully grown, both south and west, but north and east irri gation is required. The grass is of an ex cellent quality, very nutritious ami in variety and produces fat rapidly. The cattle and horses, are still at large, and I saw hundreds in good condition that have had no feed a<; yet but what they found themselves. This hay cures on the ground, and is rarely frozen before ma turity, but cures by nature and affurds excellent winter pasture. There is a cheese factory at Cardston, and it has been profitably conducted. There are also a cheese factory and creamery at Etna. At Card-ton there is a small gristmill, and about twenty miles distant in the timber the settlers own a small sawmill. There are at Cartls ton two large department stores carrying heavy stocks. They each did a business last year of between $50,000 and $T There are also two large implement ware houses. These people raised about a 100.000 bushel of grain in IS9B. Th.re is a large public school in Cardston, na tional in character and graduated, em ploying three teachers, with an average attendance of 150 pupils. There are also public schools established at Mountain View, Etna and Leavit, which have a large average attendance of pupils. m False Hair.
