THE SOLITARY REAPER
JEHOLD her, single In the field, '
Yon solitary Highland lass!
Reaping and singing by herself;
Stop here, or gently pass! ;..y
Alone she cuts and. binds the
'And sings a melancholy strain; - j
O listen! for the vale profound
Is overflowing with the sound.
No nightingale did ever chant
More welcome notes to weary bands
Of travelers In some shady haunt.
Among Arabian sands: . , '
A voice so thrilling ne'er was heard
In spring time from the cuckoo bird,
Breaking the silence of the seas
Among the farthest Hebrides.
ATHLETICS HARM COLLEGE GIRLS
Ey President ELIOT ' of , Harvard
lOMEN will never compete with men's colleges, in atlv
M Wi&J i
letics. I see 'absolutely no ..POSSIBILITY of that
' ever taking jplace. The women do not seek, competi
.. tion and it would-be of .no' benefit to them.
5 Women were . not originally, intended for such vio
lent exercise as man, and some of
strain the;;::. - lor women to put

ir.-jt.noua jior " them' to put the shot, but for . the
majority" of women it' would be enough to HURT
THEM ?V;Ti LIFE." Boating," also, is bad for
v;oiiien. V!"oca's colleges do not have crews to any great extent,
but the women who do go into it will not last long in their athletic
li-V:' V'-' en's, athletics are a,' good, thing IN" MODERATION,
but for riiem to trv to do all; that-their brothers do is a mistake.
.... . ..... ... .... .......... ...... .
THEY CaN NEVER ATTAIN TO WHAT THE MEN ARE DOINrs
AND WILL C'1Y HURT THEMSELVES IN THE ATTEMPT.
She Knew the, Whole Thing Was a Cheat, Didn't Want Anu of the Goods
.Advertised, Wouldn't. Make a Fool of Herself , Yet in the End Suc
cumbed to the Temptation Against Which No Woman Is Proof.
Well, I'm glad of it!" exclaimed the
little-woman, as she gotout ot the jam
and straightened her hat and borrowed
two pins to make repairs to her dress.
"I might have known better than - to
come to this sale. This bargain-counter
business is all a cheat, and I'll : be
glad to know that all these women are
sure to be swindled. Just look at 'em,
will .yon? They ..are, almost tearing
the clothes off each other to i get at
those stockings. . ': . ;
I didn't intend to buy any not to e.
I know all about 50-cent stockings
SIMPL.T -WANTED (TO LOOK.
marked down to 17 cents. They, are
simply 15-cent . stockings marked up
to 17, just as my husband says. , They
are not fast colors, and they have
been kicking around the store for the
last year. I simply wanted to look
at 'em and see " ...
Here the little woman paused, drew
a long breath, and dashed at an open
ing in the crowd. It closed up before
1 she. could reach it, however,' and she
was .flung back again.
"I wasn't trying to get in there," she
explained to herself, as she 'leaned
against a pillar to recover her breatft.

: Will"no one tell mte what she sings?'
Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow. ,
-For old. unhappy, farofC. things,
- And battles long ago;
Or is it some more humble lay,
Familiar matter of today?
Some natural sorrow. loss or pain,
That has been, or may be again?
Whate'er the theme, the maiden sang
As if her song could have no end
ing; I saw her singing at her work
And o'er her sickle bending: . 4
I listened motionless and still;
And. as I mounted up. the hill.
The music in my heart I bore,
Long after It was heard no more. ':

cents a cake, and my husband would
divorce me if I used anything cheap-i
erl There are two ladies whose hus
bands allow them S200 a month pin
money, ahd yet they are ready .. to
scratch each other's eyes out over
three-cent cakes of toilet soap! There's
a sign of pins at three cents a paper.
I don't want any, you know, but I'd
She made a jump and followed a
cash girl into the press. Tbat is, she
managed to squeeze ahead of an old
lady ' with gold glasses and a young '
woman with a Roman nose and take 1
them ; by surprise. ; They recovered
after a moment, however, and crowded
her against a dumpy woman with such
force that she .was glad to get back to
the corset counter alive.
"Never again in all my life will 1
make a fool of myself by attending an
other bargain sale! " she gasped, as the
tears came to her eyes. "I didn't want
those pins, as I said to myself, but I
had a curiosity to see them. They
are Just what I thought they were
brass crowbars, with points so dull
you couldn't stick 'em Into pumpKin
pie. Think of a lady using three-cent
pins around her house, when the cheap
est second girl or ' cook would ; be
ashamed to ask for anything under
seven! There's a lawyer's wife with
a 100 dress and a ' $25 hat, and yet
she's got her elbows into everybody's
ribs in her mad desire to buy five pa
pers of pins at a saving of four cents
a paper. I'm going home, I am. I
; just dropped in to see the women make
idiots , of v themselves. When ybu

At that instant, says the Cincinnati
Commercial Tribune, her eye - caught
sight of a sign: "Corset covers for
seven ' cents," and with a push and a
jam and a rush she made her way Into
the crowd and finally reached ' the
counter and ordered two. ; She was a
wreck from hat to shoes, and had
broken her parasol and lost, her shop

bClENCL OF SWEEPING.
How to Vse and Take Care of a
.;v. House Broom,' .
. When using a broom don't sweep
with, your back use your arms. Sweep
in one direction . ' wita long, " light
strokes. Sweep the carpet -with - the
pile, not against it Don't wait to
sweep a room ; until It is dirty and
To keep on using an old, stubby,
wornout broom is the poorest kind of
economy, says the Louisville Courier
Journal. Not only does it wear the
carpets, but it takes double the 'time
and strength to do the sweeping.
When buying brooms get good, firm
ones, but as light in weight as possi
ble. If one has a -large house it saves
time to keep a broom and dustpan on
each , floor in order to obviate carrying
the outfit up and down stairs each
time it is needed. ' "
! When not in use keep the . broom
hung'up.' The cellarway, where It is
cool and damp, is a good place. If
there is no ring to h,ang the broom by,
bore a hole through the handle or cut
a. notch , around the. upper part of the
handle and tie a string around it.
Every broom should have an occasion
al bath in salt water; not only to keep
'the broem corn in good condition, but
to dispose of the accumulated dust and
microbes. On' this account new brooms
are to be specially commended, as they
jean be taken apart. - The top of the
broom is . covered with tin, which
screws on ; to ' the handle. In : the , top
of the broom is a tube of metal, into
which water or. a disinfecting fluid
can be poured to moisten the, broom. "
A broom cover to slip over the broorc
when brushing down' the -walls " or
sweeping a dusty' piazza will be found
a great convenience. , Sew up, ba '
shaped! canton flannel and make a nar
row hem. .; WoT two buttonholes ar.
'inch and a half below, one on each
Bid of the seam. Stitch an inch wide'
casing on , the underside, and .run a
stout tape through , the buttonholes.
When ready to use slip the bag over
the broom, draw up the tapes anil tie
securely. A 'lightweight lliwiupl is easi
'ly washed.; Keep " several', unbleafhi.!
for the walls and colored for tle p;rch,
find when soiled., vr:isii thju.
How Ito Watii Black Sat::i.
Take the white of an eg, foui- ounces
of honey t and a wincglassf ul ' of ' gin.
Blend these ingredients thoroughly and
then wash the satin with the "mixture,
jUsing a rather hard little brush Next
irinse .it well in cold water, ' leave it to
drain-and while still quite damp iron
on the wrong side. ; -
How to Sterilise Drinking: Water.
. ' Here is the latest recipe for sterilizing
drinking 'water and killing off the ty
phoid germ: Put four drops of tincture
of iodine in half a gallon of water 'and
permit it to stand at least half an hour.
By the end of that time it will be as
harmless as distilled water. Many per
sons have not the facilities for making
distilled water. Boiling it also entails
a certain amount of trouble. In either
(case the water is' flat and unpleasant to
the taste. The few drops of iodine im
part practically no taste to the amount
of water they, sterilise, and at the same
time they answer every medicinal' pur
pose. - -

The Lion That Trighiened
r--' . ; ' . hi nm I J "
V ITTLB Gladys, had a tremendous
1 ; Imagination, and she both amus
" ed and alarmed the family by
her. big stories. One day she rushed in
from the garden and told her mother a
breathless tale about a 'lion who had
taken possession of her summer house.
"Are you sure it's a lion, Gladys?"
asked! her mother. i
' "Oh, yes, mamma. He's a great big
fellow.";:;!--- ' ' "
"Well, we'll go right out and see
him," said her mother.
Little Gladys acted as if somewhat
confused, but she followed her mother
out Into the yard. As they neared the
summer house she said: "I guess it
wasn't a lipn, mother. I guess it was a
tiger." ' -. . - '
"Well, we'll see if we can drive him
oft then," said her mother bravely and
continued on her way. As they came
still' nearer the summer house Gladys
pulled her mother back by the dress.'
"I guess it -wasn't a tiger. " I guess it
was a monkey. Yes, it was a monkey
But this did ' not influence Gladys
mother,- for she at once expressed a de
sire to see the monkey and marched
directly to the summer house. There
on the stepssat a big gray cat. vGladys'
mother turned around and eyed her lit
tle daughter reproachfully. The little
girl blushed a rosy red, arid then, pull
ing herself together, she said, "Ij know
it's only a cat, mamma, but it has such
big. whiskers it looks Just like papa."
