"No flowers" has long been a fa miliar phrase In obituary announce ments, and now "No presents, by re quest," has made its appearance In the newspaper column In which fash ionable engagements are announced. The first bride-elect publicly to emancipate herself from the tyranni cal yoke of the wedding presents is IMlss Lilian Lutley, of Oldham Priory, ;Hants, who is to be married In the iautumn to Mr. Harrington Morgan, !Judge of the civil courts of Justice in lhe Sudan. The engaged couple have requested, through the presB, that no presents be sent to them. Letters expressive of good wishes, they add, will be very acceptable. "There are many service people who have lived to wish from the bot tom of their hearts that their friends had abstained from burdening their lives with well intentloned wedding presents, and civil servants who go abroad are. I should Imagine, In the name position," said the wife of a naval officer who is a member of a well known ladles' service club. "Presents In the form of checks are, of course, acceptable, and Jewel ry does not deteriorate with keeping, but for a young couple to attempt to carry to distant lands the heterogen eous collection ot silver articles, silk cushions, afternoon tea cloths and glass and chlfia with which their friends have endowed them hi to sad dle themselves with a very expensive and very useless appendage. "I know of a woman who was mar ried five years ago and the wedding presents are still at the repository where they were sent after the cere mony," added this lady. London Mail. LONELINESS. Loneliness, bigger than ever, set tles down in the mother's heart; M the daughter would master French, o all-important, she muBt be with native friends wherever she may find them. As chaperon she lives an end less routine of hurrying from one fount of knowledge to another, or listens at home to meaningless splut terlngs, ot which she grasps only a word here and there, so says William Armstrong, in Success Magazine. Presently there is a ruction. The girl who will succeed Pattl has been listened to by a great singer to whom ihe had letters, and told that she is pelng taught wrongly. To mother and daughter this news comes as a hock; In Paris, they had fancied, all teachers must be supremely excellent. 1 fur year after this awakening things are kaleidoscopic; one Ringing teacher follows another until six have beeI tried and found wanting. Some. .1 .1 1 i. . . .. .. A times the change, is made on the ad' vice of friends; again, the gill her self takes the Initiative. The seventh singing teacher, who should properly have been the first, is finally consulted. She has trained many singers recognized In America as really great, Her voice is frankly plain: "Your voice Is in such bad condition from wrong teaching that now I can do nothing for you. Stop singing entirely for six months, then come back, and I will tell you whether It is ruined or not." To her two listeners an abyss seems opening at their feet. To economize, they leave the pension where tbey first took quarters, and rent furnished rooms yet more modest; there they set up housekeeping In a way that, at home, would have been looked oa as pitiable. The days of waiting ere sad enough for the daughter because of threat ened life hopes that grown to mean her reason for existence, and for the mother because she bears her child's troubles in addition to her own, while always present with her Is an unconquerable yearning lone linens for those she left at home.

Famous Examples Which Itare From Grave to Gay. Very curious Inscriptions appeffr on many sun dials, such as the one on Paper Buildings, In the Temple, says the Gentlewoman, which bids one abruptly "Begone about your business;" and again in Pump Court we are told that "shadows we are, and like shadows depart." Others on various sun dials are: "The day will come," "Everywhere the same," "Behold we fly," "I show by the kindness and splendor of the sun," "This is the day," "Learn to value time," "I fly while you behold me," "Enjoy the present hour," "The Bh ailow moves though I am at rest," "I set to rise," "Days make years," "I stay for no man," "The day flies," "Such is life," "Man Is but a sha dow," "Redeem the time," "Lying does not belong to me," "The bright est day has its shades," "You pursue a shadow," "The sun causes the sha dow," "You may waste, but cannot stop me," "Life is fleeting as the shadow," "Let not the sun go down on thy wrath." Vertical sun dials could be placed on a south wnll with but little trouble and less material, for It only required a dial to cast a shadow on radiating incised lines marked on the wall, These oten appeared on churches and were generally near the southwestern angle. Sometimes sun dials even ap peared In stained glass windows These are still to be seen in Lambeth Palace, and at one time there was another In the Church of All Hal lows Staining, Mark lane. Another kind of dial was of a port able description known as the "ring" type, to be worn on the finger, the light finding its way through a tiny hole. Of these the rarest sort known was furnished with a combination ot projections for throwing the shadow of the sun. Cardinal Wolsey had one made In brass gilt on which were en graved his arms. Other portable ones were a sort of combination of dial and compass and folded up. Then there was the pillar sun dial, with which we are familiar. Of this kind the baluster shaped pillar is most frequently seen, though ot course there are many variations, some taking the form of columns more or less carved and decorated. In more recent years sun dials of growing shrubs have been made as ornaments to lawns, such as the one at Broughton Castle, near Banbury. The hours are made of growing box or yew embedded In minute frag ments of smashed marble; the ur right dial, also growing, Is of yew and Is cut and trimmed Into shape. Around the whole Is written in let ters of yew "Memory lives, but the hour flies." Queer English Villages. The English village Is very dear to the hearts of poets and painters, and .thousands of them are certainly charming. A few, however, are more amusing than anything else, as, for instance, one which consists entirely of old railway carriages, even tne chapel being composed of four-horse trucks. Another village, with a pop ulation ot 1100, and taxed at the val uation ot J80OO, has neither school, church nor other public building, the only thing ot the sort being a letter box on a pillar. . Villages with but a single Inhab itant are not unknown, one of them belne Sktddaw. In Cumberland. The single villager complains bitterly be cause he cannot vote there Being no overseer to preparo a voters' list, and no church or other public building on which to publish one, as the law re quires. The lonely ratepayer In a Northumberland village has declined to contribute money to maintain the roads, remarking that the one he lias is quite good enough for Its use. In the Isle of Ely Is a little parish with about a dozen inhabitants thnt has no rates, as there are no roads or public Institutions of any kind, and consequently no expenses. Kempton, near Bradford, can prob ably lay successful claim to the dis tinction of being the longest village In the world, as It straggles along the road for a distance of seven miles. Sometimes a village will entirely disappear, having been built either on the edge of the crumbling cliffs that make part of the coast line, or over an ancient mine. One ot the hitter class is in Shropshire, and each year one or more of the cottages tumbles as the earth sinks beneath It. Har per's Weekly. . Diffidence.

Farmers Home Jour nal. SOIL FOR APPLES. Aprles do not grow without some thing to grow from. They need mors In the way of fertility than they can draw from the sky or from the tired and worn-out soil. If this food is not supplied, the trees resent It by with holding their harvest, If your trees are not doing so well as they should, try 400 pounds of bone-meal and 200 pounds ot muriate ot potash per acre. Farmers' Home Journal. LATE BEARING APPLES. Complaint is sometimes heard that apple orchards eight or ten years old do not bear any fruit, The fact of the matter Is, the trees are not old enough. Trees can bo stunted and dwarfed Into bearing crops before this age, but trees ten years old, If well cultivated and fed, should be busy making heavy wood growth, and much wood growth and fruiting do not go together. Many varieties "o not begin to bear much until twelve years old. Such trePB can bo forced Into earlier bearing by stopping cul tivation and seeding down to grass, but It Is usually considered better to keep cultivating and feeding until the tree naturally gets ready to bear, when It will be bo much larger and Its capacity bo much greater that tho size ot the crops will more than com pensate for the wait. Such trees, too, will be longer lived than trees which have been stunted and forced Into early bearing. Orchards should be shallow cultivated up to the middle ot summer each year, and by the time they are twelve years old the trees will want all the ground. Indiana Farmer. MOCK ORANGE. The "mock orange" or Pblladel phus is popularly known as "syrln ga," and the latter is the botanical name for lilac. The mock orange family comprises about thirty species of hardy, ornamental shrubs, vary ing in height from five to twenty feet. many of them admirably adapted for the decoration of home grounds. Perhaps the most widely grown va riety of those known to the old-time gardener as "syringas" is Phlladel phuB grandlflorus, which grows about six feet high and has large, white, sweet-scented flowers which appear in June. Common mock orange (P coronarlus) reaches about ten feet in height and blooms in May or June and is very fragrant. The flowers are pure whits and are borne In dense clusters, often so numerous as to bend the branches down to the ground. Gordon's mock orange (P. gordon- lanus) is a native of the United States and in good ground often reaches ten or twelve feet In height. It has pleasing green foliage with grayish hrown branches. The flowers are white and produced In great abund ance. They bloom lu June or July in central latitudes. This plant thrives in almost any well drained soil and often doeB well in the shade of trees and buildings. Indianapolis News. PEAR TREE PSYLLA. Tho Pear Tree Psylla is the con n.onest and most destructive flea louse In the country. Lucky for the orchard that the Golden-eyed Lace wing Flies prey upon tho Psj'lla and keen him somewhat in check. Let us follow out the destructive course of the Psylla to vegetation and then view with complacency his tragic end. The Psylla egg is a minute orange oval. Hatched into a larva It is still yellow with red eyes. This is Its dan ger stage should a wandering Gloden eye discover It. After several molts It emerges a perfect fly resembling a minute cicada, and hibernates through the winter. With the first warm spring days It commences egg laying on the twigs. The larvae hatch In ten to seventeen days and station themselves on the leaves. Now Is the time for the feast of the Golden-eye. He, too, is in the larval stage. Just having emerged from an egg. He it searching for a breakfast and right In his way he sees a Juicy Fsylla. Closing In on the unfortunate louse he grasps it between his long curved mandibles and rapidly squeezes out the Juice. Or should he encounter the egg of the Psylla his action will be the same biting Into it and ex tracting the soft contents. This It done with great celerity, and the dry shell cast aside, the whole operation taking less than a minute. Then the Golden-eye begins a search for an other PBylla, or In fact anything in the form ot a living Insect which crosses Its pathway. He is totally fearless and attacks with eagernesi Insects much larger than himself. Indiana Farmer. KIDNEY TROUBLE Snftrid Ten Ytars-RtlieveJtn rt ilontks Thanks to f RU-NA. . ' ., .

In Switzerland the State Is part owner of horses used by reserves. It purchases a remount at 3 '4 year, old, and the soldier pays halt the cost of the horBe to the Government, together with the difference between Its cost and the price that the horse fetches at auction for all horses are sold by auction to the men. After every year of trading th. Government refunds one-tenth of the original halt cost to the men, and at the end of ten years the horse becomes the absolute property of the soldier, la this manner the soldier is not only always well mounted but a he keeps his horse with him at hl home his mobilization problem Is ot the simplest nature. The average price ot these Swiss troop horses is about 45 sterling, says Bally's Magazine, and as most ot these horses are Imported front Ireland and north Germany their price Is considerably higher than it! would be In this country. Thus the) State secures the services of a hone for an annual outlay ot about 4 10..; but there are certain other ex penses which must be Inoluded in this estimate, such as the cost of the establishment for remount de pots, etc., which raises the total coat of horses for the Swiss Government to about 8 12s. a year.
