When properly handled It pro duces three or four cuttings each yenr and remulns productive for many years. Land which Is adapted to red clover usually grows ulfalfa when any .luck of Inoculation and of lime Is supplied. Alfalfa does best when sown alone.

Thank fortune. It was different In my young days! When 1 was a child people made the best of children as children. They weren't the kind to sit around and say solemn-like, "Now, here's a nice pine board. Some day It's going to be a beautiful china closet or an oak desk. Meantime we won't treat It like a board, hut like a china closet that Is to be," Their plan was to use that board In patch ing up the fences or some such hum ble thing, and to let the furniture ca reer take care of Itself Consequent ly, when I was a child I kept quiet la school "minded" my parents some times with the persuasion of a cat switch that hung by the kitchen man teland did such chores as watching the turkey eggs, picking up rotten np pies ami scrubbing the Kitchen chairs This work didn't hurt me one bit, and when 1 played I had the best time in the world.

Mow many people go to the theater to think or to be even ordinarily alert? The actor, facing them, can tell ou better than one of the listeners, for he has n chance to watch the ba rometer of facial expression. Yet from the front It Is possible to see that a great many either are Incapable of keeping up with "rapid-fire stuff" or do not propose to be forced Into, as In a boxing match Tor them, the obvious nnd the spectacular, with perhaps, a little music that Is easily usslmllated The foregoing.

It Is said that Monsieur Clemen ceati. who bears the pleasant sobriquet of "the tiger," Is about to connect himself with a new Journal to appear In the near future. This return to the limelight from which he had not with drawn to any distance, gives occasion for some new stories concerning him. One of these Is that a young man ap plied to him for a place. "Do you know anything about foreign affalrsT" asked the tiger. "Yes, monsieur." was the answer, to which be modestly add ed, "a little." Clemenceau appeared greatly astonished. "Ah, truly! Do you know what Is the question of the Orient, the Austro llungarlan problem, and pan-Slavic policies?" "Yes, mon sieur." Thon "tho tiger" turned on lilm, "This Is too wearisome. It would amuse me much more If you knew nothing at all." Not Always Traveling. Knights of tho grip will appreciate this yarn, which is told of one of their number. He had been summoned as a witness In a case at court, Ills em ployers having sued a delinquent cus tomer, and the lawyer for the defense was cross-examining him, "You travel for llooquu & Crooque, do you?" asked tho attorney, "Yes, sir." "How long have you been doing It?" "About ten years." "Been traveling; all that time, have you?" "Well, no, sir," replied the witness, aaklng a hasty mental calculation; "not actually traveling.

Dr. Koynlngton, of the llrooklyn Congregationalism was recently In vited to a layman's banquet In Phila delphia and gave them something to think about. He said: "I wonder, men, If It is trim that the ministry Is waning? I wonder If that Is not a blutl that the laymen are putting up tocoverthelrown Iniq uities. There ws never a time In which the minister was better edu cated than today. I admit that sala ries are waning today, when you men make the cost of living so high by your nefarious financial and commer cial schemes. No, men, the trouble with the clourch today Is not the min istry. There Is no finer body of men, men who lead more sacrificial Uvea, in r America today. Many of them might have had bank accounts as Hush as your own If they had made the choice of commercialism rather than the church of .Icsus Christ. "Why, men, you think the church is waning principally because you have quit. Some of you have not been to church in six months, and somebody tells you thu audience Is small, and you shake your head and say, the ministry is lacking. You go on hack to church and pay up your back dues and you will tl rid the min istry Just as effective as ever.". TlIK I'AtTOtt Christian Church Notes.
