When the pretty young woman V .. .1 . . . uu come " ner anQ ottered to take a cinder out of one of the children's eyes, she had felt like telling her to come Rn(j sU wUh hfir cape the attentions of the two young men The other passengers, all men, save one old woman in black, were too en- ,. x, t1"1 eu grossed to notice anything, for it was a commercial train, and there were cards and political talk, and merean tlle Prevarications to engross them "Upon my word fall at once the worou t witu the children said.

Thu men sat down, and one of them turned politely to the t young i i , .,- woman. ? scat is not occupied?" he said. , then fceeincd to CEil litisclf '.o.ui-Jtr. "I rather think "it is," she replied, "at present." "Oh, I see," he said: "you mean by us. Then you don't mind?" "It is not my private car," answered she. "Perhaps we ought to introdnee our selves," he said. "I am Mr. Rothschild of England. My friend is Lord Bere ford." She nodded. "You noticed we looked at you as soon as you entered the car?" he said. "I thought you looked at me," she answered, innocently. "Going far?" Lord Bareford asked. "About an hour farther," she said. "How far do you go?" "New York." "I suppose you have been doing the West? All of the English aristocrats do that first of all. Catch anything?" "Buffaloes," "How lovely," she cried. "And you, Mr. Rothschild, what did you catch?" "A cold," he told her. "I've the very thing," she said, open ing her little bag and taking out a lozenge. "If you put it ia my mouth, I'll take it," he said. She did so and the next minute he was sputtering." "It's cayenne," ho gasped, wiping the tears from his tyoi. "Only o.apzicum," she said, sympa thetically. "It is warming. And heat is good for a cold." Lord Bereford choked. "Would you like one?" she asked, generously. He waved off the lozenge, Mr. Roths child looked savage. But she was so pretty that he put his bad humor be hind him. "I suppose," she said, "you belong to the Prince of Wales' set?" "Yes," they said, with one voice. "Then you meet a good many Ameri cans," she said. "I wander how I would do?" She was really lovely as she 'asked the question. "You'd beat 'em all," Mr. Roths child said, elaborately. "I wish you were going all the way to New York," said Lord Bereford, "ImDOssible." she replied. "I am engaged at the governor's." "The governor's?" queried he. " The governor of this State,' she explained. "Private secretary?" asked Mr. Rothschild. "In a way, yes," said she. "My duties are varied." "Why don't you go to New York?" effusively asked Lord Bereford. "I know a private secretary there who earns " "What's the matter with London?" she broke in. "You're English, you know. My ! won't I have Iota to talk about 1 To think of meeting a real live lord and one of the Rothschilds. How wealthy you both must be !" "Wealthy enough to do the polite thing now and then," said Mr. Roths child. "Yes, indeed," chimed in Lord Bere ford, "If there is any refrerhmcnt you . I beg your purdou!" "Oh, I don't mind a little thing like that," she said "The next station is only ten minutes off. You eun get lovely fruit there. And such roses." "Now," said" Mr. Rothschild, "you are the sort of young lady I like. No stand-off nonsense about you. I should think you'd have hundreds of ad mirers." "Not so many," she replied demurely. "You mean you're engaged to be married?" he arked. She burst out laughing. "I should think not," she said. "By the way," broke in Lord Bere ford, who did not like her to be mo nopolized like this, "you haven't told us your name." "Try Jones," she said. "Miss Jones," he went on. "I " "My Lord," she interrupted, "How quickly you catch at a name. How nice it sounds to say 'My Lord.' Of course neither of you are married?" "No," they said, together. She laughed. "You're like a chorus on the stage," she said. "See, we are slowing up. This is the station I spoke of. We stop here seven minutes." She went out of the cart followed by the two men-. The woman with the children turned to the old woman in black. "Aint it shameful?" she said. "And she's dressed real expensive," and looked at her own shabby garb. "If I had a daughter like that " and the old woman in black talked. At the expiration of five minutes the trio r-tntjo4.

She suopyd beside the woman with the chiMreti ted put down tlie baskets, '"cr the little ones," said she. , The woman with the children looked I confused ; she had said so much to the passenger in front of her. Miss Jones had gone to the old woman in black and handed her the roses. "I know you have had sorrow," she said, gently. "Please take these." j The old woman's eyes filled. "My only son," she said. "I've been out to his funeral." "Yes, dear," Miss Jones said and pressed her hand. "Then she went back to take her seat. The two men were furious. "Are you aware, Lord Bereford said "that you " ' "That I seteoted the very finest roses?" she interposed. "Oh, yes. They cost you $20, and Mr. Rothschild's fruit was $15, 1 think. It was lovely of you." Mr. Rothschild was glowering. "Of course you meant the things for me," she laughed. "Soma men think women are such geese. One thing, I know you'll never tell your wives. Husht Why, John!" She had risen as a portly gentleman entered the car with the conductor. "Wherein the world did you come from?" y l heard that vour tram broke down and that you had to take this on," he said. "My car was attached at the hist sl&uion. Come." "How sweet of you!" she said. First let me introduce Lord Bereford and Mr. Rothschild. They have been very attentive to me." The portly gentleman nodded stiffly. "Come 1" he said. She tripped down the car in front of him. She spoke to the old woman in black and to the women with the' chil dren, stopping to give each child a bright piece of money. At the car door she looked back at Lord Bereford and Mr. Rothschilds, There was a twinkle in her eves which seemed to communicate Itself to the eyes of the other passengers who had If your grocer doesn't sell Schilling's Best tea, tell us his name, what kind you want (Japan, English Breakfast, Oolong, Ceylon,' or Blend), and what size pack age you want We'll see that you get it Don't send us any money We don't sell at retail.

"Conductor, demanded Lord Bere ford, frowning heavily, "who was that gentleman?" "The Governor." "And," Mr. Rothschild lowered hia: voice to ask, "do you know who the lady is?" "You commercial boys want the earth," said the coaductor, sending a window up with a bang, "That is the governor's wife." He criticized her pudding and he didn't like her cake, he wished she'd make the biscuits his mother used to make ; she didn't wash the dishes and she didn't make the stew; and she didn't mend his stockings as his mother used to do. Oh, well, she wasn't per fect but she tried to do her -best, until' at length she thought the time had' come to have a little rest; so when one day he growled and whined the whole day through, she turned him up and1 fanned his pants as his mother used to do. Wood Ashes to Prevent Abortion.

Cows with calf were al ways fond of licking the soil around these old ash beds and eatinsr the charcoal which they found there. All wood ashes contain some phosphate, and. this may have been needed to fur' nish bone material for the growing foe tus. Or it may be that the ashes pre vented the bad effects of the fermenta tion of food in the stomach, by cor recting the acidity which it generally Causes. The earth is the result of an explosion that occurred upon the sun, some scientists estimate thirty millions of yeara ago. When this explosion occurred the sun was most likely in a gaseous state and the violence was sufficient to throw the earth far enough, away to come within the range of gravital attraction of others planets, consequently what is now the earth did not fall back into the sun from which it had been thrown. Othefr planets have been caused by the same source; for instance, the moon and Mars. If a ball should be shot out of a cannon with sufficient force to land it upon Mars, if the inhabitants of that planet should use the same word in naming it as we do they would call it "rnefnrit." Jf: however, the ball should only have sufficient veloeily to carry it say half way to Mars it would then come to a stop at a point where it would be acted upon by the attraction of all surrounding planets, consequent ly it would fail upon neither, but would immediately take on a motioa or orbit of its own, when it would be come a true planet, just as our earth is.
