Mrs Hyde was i little, driedup widow, with constitutional toothache and a inild, meek way of taking the world as it Vor fifty years she had battled against misfortune until the tr faro bad become second nature to her. "But there's one blessing that liare to be thaukful for," sue woul say. "Mr. Marrell ban kept true to me through it all as the needle to . the pole." From this it ueed not bo infer re that Mr. Marvell was a lover of the Utile widow, far iroui it. llo was only her best boarder the boarder who for half a score of years had oc fiipied her "iirst floor front," aud paid his bills as regularly as the Bsturday night came around. He was a bachelor, as may bo sup posed a man who was as full of whims and caprices as an egg is of meat, yet who carried a kindly heart in bis bosom beneath it all. But ou this especial Friday morn In; his eyes blazed wrathfully the lip of his noso huug forth a crimsou flag of iniliguation, as Mrs. Uydo aoie meekly into his presence. "A month's warning, ma'am," was all that he said. Mrs. Hyde caught at the nearest chair for support. "Mr. Marrell!" she gasped. "Now, ma'am, it isn't at all worth while to go through any scene," said the bachelor, callously. "I am a practical man, as you ought to know by this time. Aud I'm not in the habit of wasting words. Tut up a bill. Ad vertise. Let your room as soon as you can, for I more ont to-morrow, although, as a tokon of respect for your many good qualities, I shall pay my bills up to the first of June." "La, Mr. Marrell!" faintly ejacu lated the widow. "How can I possi bly hare offended yon?" "Ask your own conscience, ma'am'" aterniy retorted Mr. Marrell. "Because if it's on account of Tatty ana her babies "It is precisely on that account, ma'am. I was awakened last night by the screaming of a child. "It's cutting cye-tectb, poor dear, interposed Mrs. Hyde. at Ana tuis morning, on making in quiries, relentlessly went on the bachelor, "I loarued that you had ac many taKen in your widowed niece and her twin babies? Twins, ma'am! One would hare been enough too much, in fact but when it comes to twins-" "Patty -had nowhere else to go, air," said Mrs. Hyde, apologetically, "and she'll be useful about the house. Patty's a good girl, sir." "I dare say," said Mr. Marvell. "But I can't stay in the same house with twins so, as I before remarked, put up a bill as soon as you please." 'Please, sir, Til put Patty and the children on the top floor, where they can't possibly disturb you, if " "I tell you once for all, ma'am, that I cannot tolerate children, and I won't! Will you bo kind enough to leave me now?" So Mrs. Hyde went downstairs to burst into tears, back of the pantry door, where Patty Smith, with one twin tied in the high chair and the other swarming over the floor, like a magnified beetle, was beating eggs for the dinner custard. "Aunty, what's the matter?" de manded Fatty, still whisking vigor ously away at the custard. "He's going, my dear." ; ."Who? Mr. Marrell?" "Yes." "Well, let him go, aunty," said Tatty, cheerfully. She was a dim pled, pretty little lady, with pleasant, black eyes and blaok hair, parted low on her forehead, not quite twenty, in a. . m . -a spue oi ner widowhood and her twins! "It's a cheerful room you'll soon fill up the vacancy." "But not with such a man as Phm- eas Marvell," groaned Mrs. Hyde. 'Oh, Patty, you don't know him!" ' "I know he must be a crusty old piece, aunty, or he never would ob ject to the dear, darling little babies." aaid Patty, with a loving glance at the twins. "Don't fret, now, there's dear. It'll all come right, see if it dop t. I'll write an advertisement myself, and take it down to the news paper office this afternoon." Bo Mr. Marvell packed up hia goods and left, and Mrs. Hyde cried, "It seems suoh a pity," said ahe, "atter ten years. . VUon't mind it, aunty," said the courageous Patty. "I'm sure he must be a selfish creature, or ho never would serve you so." I Hardly a month had elapsed when a sour-visaged woman came to the Hyde house and requested an audience with the mistress thereof. . SIV ma map a "ion Know jar. juarveu, j. sup pose," said she. "I know Mr. Phineas Marvell," answered Mrs. Hyde, with dignity. "Well, it's all the same," retorted she of the acidulated countenance. "He's boarded at our house three weeks and four days. s He's down with the small-pox." "Ob, my!" ejaculated Mrs. Hyde. "Poor, dear soul. And who takes care of him?" "That's just the Tery question," aid the visitor. "I can't. I've got ay own family, as never has had be small-pox, to think ofand the other boarders has all el eased out, and the doctor don't know of no one as would be willing to undertake the risk, r'raps you conld come?" , Mrs. Hyde visibly recoiled. "N no! ' she answered. "I would rather not. As you say yourself, it's great risk to run. and" Dal Tatty Smith, who hal listened in the midst of which lay Mr. Marvell, tossing on a bed of sickness. A Are less grate; undraped windows, through which the sun beat with merciless brilliancy; dust ia every spot on which dust could possibly alight, and pillow and bed licen a week old. "I'll soon set all these matters straight," said Patty, moving around with the quick decision that was nat ural to her. And within half an "hoar the scene had assumed a more home like look, even to the staring, uncon scious eyes of the delirious man. "Who are you? An augel?" he asked, lowering his voice to a whisper. "No," she answered, smiling in epite of herself. "I'm Patty." "Don't leave me," he uiged. "It's so dreadful to be left alone." "No," she answered; "I won't." Phineas Marvell lay ill for a month and with slow recovery came a sense of all that Patty Smith had done for him. "I'll tell you what," said the. doc tor, on the day that he made his last professional visit, "if it hadn't been for Mrs. Smith, you would have been snngly stowed away between four mahogany boards by this time, my friend." "I know it," Mr. Marvell answered. "Well," said Mrs. Hyde, when at last Patty returned homo and hugged the twins within an inch of their lives, "I hope the poor, dear., gentle man is better." "Oh, he's all right now!" said Patty. "He's coming back to-morrow or the next day. Is the room all ready?" "All ready," Mrs. Hyde answered. Mr. Marvell returned the next day and once more took possession of his old quarters. . "Mrs. Hyde," said he, with a little embarrassment, when that lady came upstairs to inquire his wishes in re gard to any early tea, "there's some thing I, perhaps, ought to mention to you." "Indeed, sir! said the wondering Mrs. Hyde. "What is that?" .'I'm going to be married!" an nounced the bachelor, with infinite sheepishnesa. "Married, sir? Yon? Dear, dear! Then you'll be leaving me again, I sbouldn t wonder." j "Not necessarily, Mrs. Hyde. l' dare say yon and my future wife will' get along very comfortably together." "Indeed, sir!" "For I'm going to marry Patty." "Patty?" echoed Mrs. Hyde. "Yes, Patty!" "And how about the twins?" de manded the amazed matrou. "The twins, Mrs. Hyde, are the dearest little creatures in the world." And, .improbable as it may seem, Mr. Marvell really looked as if he be lieved what he said! It was all true. He did marry Patty aud he was proud of his pretty, energetic little wife, and still more proud, strange to say, of the twins! "I wouldn't believe it unless I'd ha' seen it with my own eyes," said Mrs. Hyde. "He as never could endure children afore! But I'm as pleased as Puncn, for Patty's sake!" And Patty and her middle-aged husband were serenely happy together. Variably if a rain or cloudy weather came that weed grew.

Good specimens are very often spoiled in dressing, while poor peci mens may often be made far more at tractive by proper care. Fowls should be left without food for twelve hours before killing, so that crop may be eutirely empty. Suspend each on by the feet and with sharp-pointed knife cut a deep gash in roof of mouth at bae of brain. Plucking should begin at once, all the large feathers being removed by the time fowl is dead. The pin feathers can then be easily removed. Do not remove crop or in testines. Carefully wash the mouth and remove all blood clots. Do not singe, and by all means do not tear the skin. Let them hang in a cool place until the animal heat is out; then pack in layers in box or barrel, if in tended for shipment. If a great number are be dressed the feathers should be saved, as they will bring from five cents to seven cents a pound when dry picked.- Farm and Home.

When hungry stock are set into a field they usually mako the most of what falls to them, but if they are only half-hungry the desire to roam over the pasture is strong. In a herd or flock the grazing behavior of the bunch as a whole is influenced a good deal by the peculiarities of the older and more masterful members. Should these leaders be of a discontented turn, they are apt to infect their neighbors and to keep the group on the move. A quiet, ea9y-going disposi tion on the part of the "elders' has a soothing and settling effect. But flocks and herds take strange fits at times. They are unaccountably rest less,evenona clean and pleasant range of pasture. They keep moving, for no apparent puipose, and refuse to settle down. Matters are at the best when the stock fail to graze of their own accord. On a hillside or moor a flock of sheep or a herd of Highland cattle seems to be perfectly contented with the fare at command. One fears to disturb the group, knowing full well that onco a spell of peace is broken there cannot be rest for hours ou end. In spite of long domestication, our farm animals of the hardier varieties are never so happy as when they discover suitable feeding grounds for themselves. Once again they are the creatures of Tery ancient custom, and have vague glimpses of freedom. London Live Stock Journal. Ships landed High And Dry. Tallahassee, Fla., Special. The first train since Monday from Carrabelle, through the storm-stricken Gulf coast section, reached here Thursday after noon, the passengers having been transferred twice from a flat car from Carrabelle to a lever car between Cow Creek and the Ochlcckonee river, then to the relief train for Tallahassee. The train crew and passengers agree in stating that reports s-ent out of the destruction wrought by "the storm have been extremely moderate. Carrabelle la literally wiped from the map. Her docks and wharves, containing 400,000 feet of lumber, and 50,000 barrels ot rosin, were quickly swept away. Thir teen of the large lumber vessels in the bay were swept ashore, and are now lying well upon dry land. These ves sels contained several million feet of lumber.

Manila now baa the newsboy, for the first time in her history. .They are a cosmopolitan lot Filipinos, Chinese, .Taps, Hindoos and represen tatives ot races from all the islands but quite like the newsboy wherever found. "These urchins are rapidly picking up and acquiring an English phraseology which is surprising," says Freedom, an American newspa per published at the island capital, but an equal amount of curiosity is aroused in the American when he sud denly hears such tunes sung and whistled as 'Hot Time in the Old Town To-night,' 'After the Ball, and all the other popular and unique airs of the Americano, and then sees a lit tle Filipino youngster (with a bundle of papers under his arms) do it all.

Scabby potatoes seem to be becom ing more aud more prevalent year by year, and it is evident that farmers must exercise all the wits they possess if they keep clear of them. While I do not die pate the fact that this malady is caused by microbes, and may be checked by the submerging the seed in solutions which destroy them, I find that if the crop bo planted so the growth of tubers will come either be fore or after' the hottest summer weather, they largely escape the ef fects of scab. By planting in this lati tude (central Pennsylvania) as late as June 25 or July 4, the viues remain green and healthy until frost, and per fectly clean tubers invariably result. It is hardly practicable to grow all our potatoes as late as this, but here is an idea which may be acted upon by the farmers of this country to great ad vantage. Healthy seed planted on ground not affected will develop but little scab in one year. Here is a way to get the healthy seed. Let every farmer grow as late in the season as possible enough tubers for his seed stock the next spring. Carefully save and plant only such seed and this troublesome disease will become less and less prevalent. To keep seed pc tatoes in condition for planting as late as J uly, it is neces sary to spread them thinly on the floor of some dry, light room. The sprouts will then be short, thick and stocky, and not break off if carefully handled in planting. A little farther south two crops are grown eaoh season, and the second is saved for early planting the next spring. To do this it is neces sary to dig the tubers, and let them lie on the ground fully exposed to sun and air for a week or more. This seasons them and puts them in condition to grow at onoe when planted, which they would not do without this seasoning process. I believe this idea if carried out by every Northern farmer would be .worth millions of dollars to this country. Will you not experiment a little along this line and see how much it may benefit you?

One like that was made at Utrecht, In Germany, a long time ago, for a little granddaughter of Peter the Great, the ruler of Russia. It Is of gold and Ivory and One Jewels and other coetly materials. The reception rccms are hung with brocade, the stairs carpeted, the doors open and shut, and the bedrooms are beautifully furnished. For a little New York girl a ('oil's house was not long ago made which cost several thousand dollars. Great artists were paid to paint the tiny pictures on the walls and to dec orate the ceilings of the best rooms. and the chief unholsterers were em- pflyed to make the furniture.

Sena tor Pasco has been in Congress for twelve years, and during that time his record showf. that he never voted directly on any question. He baa had a chronic pair ever since lie took his seat. The reason for this is that Senator Pasco has charge of the pairs' on the Democratic aide, and it was his duty to -see thai air the Democrats absent were properly paired. To do this be was almost always obliged to pair himself, not on account of the absence of a Democrat, but ont oi courtesy to the Republicans.

While scientific minds are disc us ing the anti-toxin scrum treatment of disease aa if it were a new thing, the people of ancient Burmah are calling attention to the fact that for centuries the material they have used in the common custom of tattooing has been an efficient anti-toxin for snake bites.

But that was not what this woman did. She stepped immediately up to nan and Eaid: "I am all alone in this house and I want you to go right away." The strangest part ot the story seems to be that the man did go. He bad al ready taken some things, and those he kept, but he did not wait to look for others. It waa not conscience that drove him away, as he kept what he had, and it conld hardly have been fear. It Is a standing conundrum lm that family why that burglar went away, and no good reason seems to be found unless it was politeness, and he did not like to refuse a lady quest ' . . pnnTEn'snnci Is wbtt Uarle Pans ae.
