There was a delicious coolness under the trees and a delizhtful view. No one was in sight, and we sat on the porch in the old- fashioned rockers, wmcn invite company. The door was open and disclosed a hall whic h was neatly furnished. The rooms on each side wero rather richly dressed lor a country cottage, and the walls with pictures of the Bon at almost every stage ot lite.

Chicago Times. THE EXTRAVAGANT COST OF KEEP ING YACHTS IN COMMISSION. Aa Estimate of the Expenses aa Viewed From the Standpoint of Moderation. What Yachting Ba in Common With Housekeeping. It has been said that it cost the owner 810,- 000 to keep the Huron in commission during the yachting season. This statement has led many people to wonder whether such an out lay is customary among yachtwnen. There are few yachtsmen who devote them selves entirely to their vessels during the sea son, so it must follow that many other pleas ures occupy their leisure, summer time, to jay notning of tht remaining eight or mncmontua of the year. In order to keep up the same monetary pace m all tho festivities which en sue between New Year's and Christinas, the $10,000 yachtsman should have an income of not less than $100,000, provided be has any in tention of living within his resources or of accumulating a nest egg. ESTIMATING THE COST. Boston yachtsmen are not, as a rule, so ex travagant as their New York bretliren, and many of them seem to think that unless a man is prodigal in his salt waiT hospitality he should be able to weather the season with out crossing tho $5,000 line. Tbo Huron's owner must have thrown a good deal of his money overboard if his boat cxt him SlO.foO every year," said a gentleman who owns one of thtlargest and best known yachts in eastern waters, and as the unhappy proprietor of tho Huron had not the reputation of an extrava gant host there would seem to be a e;reat deal ol truth in this assertion. A vessel like the Huron could bo launched complete, according to tfco statements of tho leading builders in this section of the country, at a cost of from $30,000 to $.15,000 at most. The joUv tars on board would number eight or nine rnn before the mast, a captain, a mate, a cook, a steward and perhaps a cabin Ho boy. Tho pay of tho crow will averageaboat $30 per month for each ordinary seaman, from $o0 to $100 per month for tne captain, from $50 to $75 for the mate, and, according to the epicurean tastes of the owner, the g cook s wages would rango trom tnat or ttio heave-o'-my-timbcrs tar to that of tho gallant and gold laced captain. Homo yacht owners who are inclined to "put on style," w ill select from their rope-hauling minions a second mate, a -bosun" and quartermaster for an ad ditional wage of $5 every thirty days. Put ting the numlicr of a working crew of a crack yacht at twelve and fixing tho coct therefor according to the followiugliNrjllycalculai.cd table, the expense of maintenance can bo easily determined: Captaia" salary pr month, say Mate's salary per month, say ScoDd mate's salary per mnth. say . QuartNmastirs salary per month, say Bosun's salary per month, say Six seamen at &J0 per month Cook per month, say A SENSATION. Why is it that three bottles of B. B. B. are told in Atlanta to one of any other blood remedy, and twice as much con sumed in the state of Georgia as any other preparation? No one need take our word, but simply ask the druggists. Ask the people. They are competent witnesses. Six bouses in Atlanta are buying B. B. B. in five and ten gross lots, and some of them buy as often as every two months. Why these unpre cedented sales here at home with so little adverlibiug? Modebty forbids us making auyrepiy. Had B.

The former may be inane, frivolous, but it is not more so than the average wH-iety ; the latter would make us believe that the race is com posed of criminals and politicians, and that there is no difference between the two.
