He asked for a pen. but they gave him a

But he altered his mind, and, seizing the

He worked with a will that Is bound to suc

The way It was rough and the labor was
Dut his heart he kept filled with a song.
Some Jeered him and sneered at the task,
but he plugged
Just as hard as he ever could plug;
Their worda never seemed to disturb him a

The day came at last when they called for
the spade.
And gave him a pen In its place.
The joy of achievement was 'sweet to his
And victory shone In his face.

What are you making so many
dainty waists and frocks for?" I ask
ed a pretty college girl, who had been
getting up early every morning dur
ing the spring term to sew. "Are
you going to spend the summer at a
"Yes, I am," she said laughingly.
There's a pond and a hill and some
woods there, and its name is Pine
hurst." "Why, isn't that the name of your
farm?" I asked.
"Yes; it is the name I give it. Well,
it's right there that I'm going to
spend my summer."
"Then why are you making all this
dainty outfit?"
"I'll tell you. Every summer since
I have been teaching or going to
college, I have turned the house up
side down to get my sewing done.
Mother has left everything she could
to help me, and never uttered a com
plaint. I thought I had to have this
and that, and so the whole summer
went in sewing for me. Well, last
spring vacation, I visited two friends
of mine. One said I really must come,
but she would have to sew. And sew
she did, and she was in a kimono
from morning till night. One night
we went to a party, and she put on
one of her lovely gowns. Her father
turned her round and round and said:
"Why can't just plain we have a sight
of these pretty dresses sometimes?
You look as pretty as a picture, Zoe."
The atmosphere at supper seemed
changed, somehow. Zoe did look love
ly, and every one seemed animated.
I stayed in Zoe's home about three
days and then went to Ada's. She,
too, was busy helping her mother and
giving me a good time, and she went
around mornings in the most be
witching little house-jackets in be
coming soft colors, as neat as wax.
Afternoons she was just as trimly
dressed as you see her at college.
Then one evening she put on her
pink party dress and gayly announced
at supper-time that there would be a
musioale that night in the parlor.
Every one seemed delighted. Her
father said he would get home early
and I heard her two brothers declin
ing engagements at the 'phone. Ada
carried on the whole affair with that
winning vivacity of hers, making
grand stage bows, and keeping every
body hilarious. Bessie, her little sis
ter, was made to play one of her lit
tle exercises; Guy, the high-school
brother, gave several- cornet solos;
Hal, the college boy, played his clari
net, and Ada accompanied them on
the piano. They hunted up a violin
for me in town, and we had a little
impromptu orchestra recital. And
you should. just have seen Ada's fath
er and mother enjoy. themselves! You
know how- parents just swell and
swell with pride? And Ada had fixed
her mother's hair with flowers in it;
she looked so young and happy and
sweet. The family just worship Ada,
and I am sure I do not wonder at it;
she is sunshine personified. I asked
her mother what time they get to
sew, and she said Ada did it most for
herself while she was at school, and
got up early mornings in the summer
time and worked awhile.
So I am trying to copy Ada. It all
came to me while I was visiting those
two girls how selfish I have been, go
ing around in kimonos all summer,
tewing for dear life, and getting tired
and cross and keeping mother's tidy
house upset. So this summer I am
going to have trim little morning
dresses and daintly little afternoon
dresses, and an evening dress or two
all for the dear home folks. And if
any sewing is done, it shall be for
mother. And I am going to make her
lie in the hammock while I read to
her. And there are going to be do
ings at Pinehurst, too, not the kind
that keeps you worrying for a week
or two, but little impromptu picnics
and lawn parties. Don't you wait to
be a guest at Pinehurst for a week or
so this summer?
"Yes. I would all right; but I be
lieve I shall be engaged in running
a similar resort myself; you and Ada
make it very attractive. How would
it be to pass the idea along to all the
girls? "Lillian Morse, in Young People.

Simplicity of diet should be a point
of first consideration with all persons
upon whom falls the responsibility
of providing the family bills of fare,
since the simplest foods are, as a rule,
the most healthful. Variety is need
ed; that is, a judicious mingling of
fruits, grains, and vegetables; but
the general tendency is to supply our
tables with too many kinds, and to
prepare each dish in the most elabo
rate manner, until in many house
holds the cooking of food has come
to be almost the chief end of life.
While the preparation of food should
be looked upon as of so much import
ance as to demand the most careful
consideration and thought as to its
suitability, wholesomeness, nutritive
qualities, and digestibility, it should
by no means be made to usurp the
larger share of one's time when sim
pler foods and less labor would afford
the partakers equal nourishment and
Eating simply for the gratification
of taste is a degrading custom. A
great variety of foods at one meal
exerts a potent influence in creating
a love of eating, and is likewise a
constant temptaton to over-eat. Let
us have well-cooked, nutritious, and
palatable food, and plenty of it; va
riety from day to day, but not too
great a variety at each meal.
The prevalent custom of loading
the table with a great number of
viands upon occasions when guests
are to be entertained in our homes is
one to be deplored, since it is neither
conducive to good health nor neces
sary to good cheer, but on the con
trary is so laborious and expensive a
practice that many are debarred
from social, intercourse because they
cannot afford to entertain after the
fashion of their neighbors.
Upon this " subject a well-known
writer has aptly said: "Simplify
cookery, thus reducing the cost of
living, and how many longing indi
viduals would thereby be enabled to
afford themselves the pleasure of cul
ture and social iatrecourse. When
the barbarous practice of stuffing
one's guests shall have been abolish
ed, a social gathering will not then
imply, as it does now, hard labor,
expensive outlay, and dyspepsia. Per
haps when that time arrives, we shall
be sufficiently civilized to demand
pleasures of a higher sort. True, the
entertainments will then, in one
sense, be more costly, as culture is
harder to come by than cake.
The needless profusion of viands
now heaped upon the table, betrays
poverty of the worst sort. Having
nothing better to offer, we offer vic
tuals; And this we do with something
of that complacent, satisfied air with
which some more northern tribes pre
sent their tidbits of whale and wal
rus." E. E. K.t in Home and School.

look out for your face.
"My boy," said a wise father, who
knew how to play and be a chum
with his twelve-year-old lad, "you do
not own your own face."
The boy looked puzzled. He had
come to the breakfast table with a
frowning, clouded countenance, and
had started moodily to eat his food.
Everybody felt the shadow of his ill
spirits evident in his looks. His fath
er's unexpected words brought him
back to life, and he looked up with a
half-gullty expression, but did not
understand what was meant.
"You do not own your own face,"
his father repeated. "Do not forget
that. It belongs to other people.
They, not you, have to look at it. You
have no right to compel them to look
at a sour, gloomy, and crabbed face."
The boy had never thought of that,
but he understood and did not forget.
And all of us should understand and
none of us should forget that our
faces belong to other people. Chris

TWO engines may look
equally good, may even
work equally well for a
time. In the end one proves
satisfactory, the other becomes
a nuisance. Why?
The satisfactory engine is
one that is carefully built,
and thoroughly tested.
Thorough testing takes time
and costs money. It means
careful adjustment under trying
conditions. It is an expensive
process, but a necessary one if
the finished engine is to be
