THE BAIIRE DAILY TIMES, BARRE. , VT.. THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 5. 1912.
MR. WHATS- , HIS-NAMR By KATHLEEN J. M CURDY Miss Wilkins, spinster, commonly called old tuaid, tbougb she was not yet thirty, lived in a flat On tbe op posite side of tba ball was another flat la which lived a couple who Inter ested Miss Wilkins. There is nothing remarkable in this inasmuch as old maids are usually supposed to be In terested in their neighbors' affairs. Whether or no this is tbe case. Miss Wilkins. who by the bye was very ob- ervant. noticed that Mrs. YVhat's-her name, across the boll, always wore orrowful countenance. The next thing Miss Wilkins noticed was that whenever she was lying , awake between midnight and 3 or o'clock she would bear a footstep com Ing up tbe stairs, and on reaching the story on which ahe llred the sound would end in tbe closing of a door. There being but one other flat on the floor besides Miss Wilkins', the door was undoubtedly closed by one of that other flat's inmates. An idea struck Miss Wilkins right between tbe eyes. Mr. What's-his name, her neighbor, was the cause of his wife's melancholy. It was he who came borne so lute. Wbut wonder that the lady was miserable with such husband! Was be dissipated? An other idea popped into Miss Wilkins' head. Mr. What's hls-name must mak his living by gambling. She bad once known a woman whose busband was Rambler, and tbe wife was always tba picture of misery. The problem was solved. That It was solved correctly wa proved by tbe fact that no one was stirring in tbe neighboring flat in tba morning till 11 o'clock. Then a waiter from a restaurant brought a tray cov ered with a napkin, knocked at tbe Wbat's-tbelr-name's door and handed In what Miss Wilkins was sure was the husband's breakfast The reason she was sure It wajs the man's breakfast was because she bad often seen the tray sitting on the floor beside the opposite door for a waiter to remove, and there was but one coffee cup and one plate. Undoubtedly Mrs. Whats her-name got her own breakfast at a proper hour. " Miss Wilkins gave music lessons, and an hour when she was sure to be occupied with a pupil was between 10 and 3 in tbe afternoon. She watched for Mr. What's-hls-name to go out. but never saw blm. consequently she sur mised that he left borne during tbe hours that she was always engaged. One 1st of May Mr. and Mrs. What's their-names moved out of the fiat op posite Miss Wilkins. The lady attend ed to the moving, Mr. Wbafs-hls-name not appearing while it was io progress, Indeed, it was done in the afternoon Miss Wilkins inferred that since be was up all night at cards or whirling a roulette machine be must have his Bleep In tbe morning and bav bis poor wife to do the moving. Anyway, Miss Wilkins never saw the husband, but a mental picture of him that she con jured up remained Jn her mind. It resembled Mephistophele. That was the end of the What's- their-names for Miss Wilkins. Three years later the spinster got a busband of her own. The moment she paw him all that antagonism to men which had been with her since she had, passed twenty-fl ve In other words, since it began to look as If she bad been left out of tbe matrnnonial king domvanished. There was something o benevolent, so noble, so winning in his face that she fell before blm like pr in before a scythe. The gentleman's name was Smiley. Miss Wilkins said it should be Smiling, ince bis beautiful face always wore a smile and that smile was bis most Jovely feature. He seemed very much pleased that Miss Wilkins was pleased with him. for be was a widower look ing for a wife. Having every reason to suppose that be would be accepted by Miss Wilkins, be proposed, and they were married. Mr. Smiley was very regular In his habits and very domestic. He was a magazine editor, and his hours at his ofBce were the same as those of other persons, though, sometimes he brought manuscripts bome and spent tbe even ing reading them. But he always ex cused himself so pleasantly for thus depriving his wife of his company that she forgave him. One Sunday afternoon while strolling they passed an apartment bouse. "I once occupied a flat In there," said Miss Wilkins. "indeed! When was that?" "Four years ago. We occupied the second story west Cat A couple lived opposite whom I shall never forget Tbe man was a gambler, and his wife was the most unhappy creature I ever met" "How did you know that the man was a gambler?" "Why. he was out all night and lay abed till noon. Besides his wife show ed by her expression that be was some thing dreadful." Mr. Smiley turned and looked In his wife's face with every appearance of surprise. "When did the couple move out?" be asked "In May, 190." "Great heaTensI Do yon know who I am? ..I'm that man. I wasn't a gam bler. I was managing editor of the Daily Advertiser and couldn't get home till 4 in tbe morning. My wife was miserable because she was suffering from the disease of which she died." "Oh, my goodness graclousl" ALL PLEASED WITH RESULT Democrats Find Much Hope In Vermont. Steamer Recaptured. Washington, Sept. 5.

Possibilities That Have Been Overlooked What Experimenta Show. Farm and Fireside, an ' agricultural journal published at Springfield, O., say: While animal breeding is at present a far more important industry than plant breeding, the possibilities of plant breed ing are the greater, owing to the larger number of individuals involved and the shorter time required for a generation, and is now receiving considerable atten tion from the scientist and farmer. Thi potato is one of the staple farm crops particularly adapted to . experimental work in this line. The propagation is entirely by budding or asexual methods, thus troubles due to creasing, or danger ot unintentional eross-lertilization are avoided. The method that appears to give the best results in actual farm practice is 1 1 win i iir- in r. zxnii Liir i i iiil i . . ami allow to .Uftd for twenty i of "TT ? 0f thf bT DR. T.

Berry Sherbet Crush one pound of obtainable tubers and cutting each into tour pieces. I hese are planted in four hills that are marked in such a manner that thev can be distinguished at any time. When harvested, the product of each of the four hills units is placed In a paper sack and labeled. These sacks are then weighed, the number of market able tubers counted, and examined for imperfections of any kind. The seed for the second crop is select ed from the best yielding units, with consideration for size and shape of the tuber. This process can be kept up in definitely. After the best seed has been selected for the breeding plot, the r. niainder from the best hills may be used for a multiplication plot, where commer cial seed is grown. The characteristics that should receive attention, aside from increased yield, are the number in tha hill, which should be such as to give a' medium-sized tuber, with the increased yield, the shape and smoothness of thj tuber, and the ability of the plant to' resist disease and insect enemies. Four years' work under these meth ods have shown some interesting results. There appears to be a correlation be tween high-yielding hills and resistance to disease and to the' ravages of the j potato beetles. Fifteen per cent, ia a conservative esiimare or me actual in crease in the field crop due to pedigreed, seed. This does not take into conaidera. tion the increased quality of the crop. The ground used for a breeding plot should be in the same state of tilth and fertility, and. the character of the aoil should not vary. The crop should ha planted, cultivated and fertilized in the same manner as the field crop, excepting that,' of course, the aeed must be planted by hand to insure accuracy in the rec ords.
