How much William IV disliked Buck ingham palace is shown by a passage in the diary of Lord Brougton, who was first commissioner of works in 1834. when the houses of parliament were burned down. Two days after the fire Broughton records: "Went, to St. James, and saw his majesty. I can not say he was much affected by the calamity at having the opportunity of getting rid of Buckingham palace; said he meant it as a permanent Rift for parliament houses, and that It would be the finest thing In Europe At three o'clock the kingand queen came, and went over the ruins of the two houses. . . . The king looked gratified as if at a show, and per haps to the prospect of getting rid of Buckingham palace. JUst before get ting into his carriage he called the speaker and me to him. and said Mind!

"Study thearrangement of flowers and plants in the windows of the floc lsts," says an observing hostess.. "Un less a woman is an artist she cannot hope to qual the skill shown by the professionals who arrange the display windows of the modern flower market, and I find it easier and better to copy than to experiment. One of the use ful ideas I gleaned recently from the study of a beautifully arranged win dow was the possibility of (test tubes as flower holders. These were placed at eachside of the handle of a basket of flowers, and were tied in place with many twinings of gauze ribbon and almost concealed by the many looped bows. The ribbon was the palest blue. and in each test tube were a single full blown pink rose and a few buds." Busy Bees. No wonder the honey bees have been given the honor of being the busiest little creatures alive. A scientific ex periment has shown that a red clover blossom contains on an average less than one-eighth of a graiu of sugar. There being 7,000 grains in a pound, the bee that makes a pound of honev must obtain its material from no less than 56.000 clover heads. But this is not all. In order to pet the nectar the bee is compelled to insert its proboscis into each floret or flower tube com posing the head of clover, and there are. it is said, about sixty florets in every head. The insect must, there fore, perform this operation CO times 56,000. or 3,360,000 times, in order to obtain a pound of nectar. Value of Honey. Honeyjs as wholesome and nourish ing as concentrated refined cane sugar Is unwholesome and lacking in nour ishment. Honey is a medicine as w ell as a food. Give it to the children in place of candy. Be sure, how over, that you get pure honey. Glucose is more harmfel than susar. There are impor tant differences even in pure honey, .cording to the conditions under which It Is made. Just as there is a ureat difference in fruit, according to tho soil on which it Is itrown. Dark r?d honey I much the best, although thv people demand lifchl ellov honey, just as they insist on light colored dried fruit, because they cat with their eye and do net think. Must Be Protected.

Just now out of a position. was going up to his room on tne wuu floor of a tenement house when be no ticed a dainty glove on the stair be fore him. Seeing a figure in sinris ahead of him. he picked up we gw nn h.nstenlnff on. asked the comeij young woman be overtook if the glove belonged to ner. sue smiuuK'j uv tnTciPfliTwi that it did and thanked Mr. Blunt accordingly. Moreover, ue noticed or fancied he noticed a look of nd miration in the young woman a it-hih rrna not surorising. for be tO, waa a rood looking man. -I 'aven't seen you in tne Duiiaing cntrt John.

Mphho 1 can 'eli you to that I'm a valley myseir wuen know a lot o' swell folks." nitnse let me know, l m in No 0 on the next floor above." Th verv next day Mr. Blunt rap ped at No. i and was admitted by an niiiarir womiin. who called out "Susan!" and in came the young wo man ho hni mpt the dav before. lie said he had called to get some infor tuation as to what wages she would expect ii ud other items of like nature. but in realitv he was desirous of form ins Susan's acquaintance. There are triUers among the lowly as well as among the swells, and Mr. Blunt was beut on an affair with the nrettv ladv's maid. He called often. and his attentions appeared to be high ly appreciated. Susan seemed a bit fond of finery and jewelry, and Mr. Blunt considered himself fortunate in beius able to gratify ber. especially In th matter of Jewelry. lie made her presents of a few inexpensive orna ments. but they did not seem to satisfy her. John found her very fascinating and in order to gain ber good will pro duced articles of greater value. Finally he found himself so deeply infatuated that be proposed marriage. To his surprise Susan refused him Nevertheless from time to time she gave him encouragement to hope that she might reconsider her refusal. She said that she had expensive tastes and was afraid that he would not be able to gratify them. She hinted at a suit or. a plumber, who had made a great deal of money, but she did not love him. Nevertheless she was thinking of marrying him because he could give her what she craved jewels. Upon this John shied off for awhile susan didn t seem to mind tne cuange In his attentions to her a bit- Indeed, she scarcely noticed him when they met. One day she told him that she was in receipt of handsome presents from the plumber and she expected a proposal. Soon after she bad told John this he came to her one day with a brooch containing several large diamonds, tell ing her that his last master, a stock broker, had giveu him a tip by which he had made a lot of money. lie bad spent a part of it for his beloved Su san. Susan's eyes sparkled with pleasure at seeing the ornament. She put it on and admired it and herself in a mirror. "ou look fine in it, Susan." said her lover. "I'm so 'appy at my luck In making the money to buy it for you seeing ns ow now you necdu't 'ave to give yourself to the plumber." But Susan did not quite accede to the proposition. John begged her to end his suspense and agree to marry him. but she said that the expense of living was rising every day and she was afraid that without a permanent income they would come to grief. She would rather remain single and be a lady's maid than be married and in poverty. But John did not despair, for her love for jewelry seemed to him to have been born in ber, and his old master, the stockbroker, gave him another tip and h made more money. This time he gave Susan n bracelet, a serpent with ruby eyes. Again Susan was de lighted and seemed to warm; but, though on the verge of consenting, she did not consent. One d.iy John called to sh? his love when she was not at home. Her mother revolved hliu and said to him: "I'm doing all I can for you. John, with Sus.ui. Persevere and you'll win. It's the jewels th:t's doing it." After this John bvame reckless In his it'ts, and Wfotv long Susan pos sessed Jewels cni!.h to decorate a duchess. One day when John called at No, l he ell- itiHl no response, lie tried the d.Hr and tound It locked. The same evening be tiled It again with a like result. When n couple of day had passed nud No. t vvn still locked John made ui bU mind that something was wrong. He disappeared himself. Susan bad returned to the home of a wealthy woman with whom Kho lived ns her mnld. A friend f this lady, also wcal'liv, bad I1 valuable Jewel and had suspected her son's valet. Averse to pul.ll.1iy. she would have Mood her los without appealing to the police had not Susan, hearing of the ease from her mistress, volunteer ed to make an attempt to wheedle them out of the thief. John was not troubled, but the jew els were returned to their owner, and Susan was well rewarded. A "Lion" Gao Water E to heat your water DAYTONA PUBLIC SERVIC ICE. HAS.
