The 'Faithful Ten," the ''Busy Ten" and the "Flower Ten" were aorao of them. Hut one evening when several young girls were gathered on Hello Moore's piazza, sho said: 'Why can't wo have a 'Temperance Ten'?" "What could we do?" asked Flor ence Stilwell. 'Why, wo could all sign the pledgo for one thing, and wo could try to get tho boys to sign it, too." What kind of a pledge?" questioned Sallie Gray. 'Oh, they must promiso not to drink or to smoke." "We couldc't get the boys to promise not to smoke," said Sallie; "they just will smoko." 'llow do you know that wo can't get them to promise? Wc haven't tried yet." Sure enough, how could they know what they might accomplish until they tried? Before tho week was out the "Temperance Ten" was formed and busy at work. "We must creep before we can walk," said Belle, which was true. First they all signed tho pledge, even tno ono against smoking, al- they could not help laughing about it. "For, of course, we'd never think of smoking anywavt" said Sallio Grav. Ben Gray, Sal lie's brother, was tho first boy to sign the pledge. Sallio wa3 overjoyed, for sho knew that Ben had been smoking cigarettes on the sly. Before tho summer was over ten boys had signed the pledge and were keeping It. Florenco Stilwell had a party in tho fall quite n largo one. All of tho "Temperance Ten" were there with their white ribbon bows. All of tho ten boys who had signed the pledgo were on hand, too, and, bealdes these, thero were as many more boys and girls. In tho corner of a cozy lit tle room, thero was a little table on which were a pledge, pen and ink. "IMcase, put your namo down," shown In golden letters in tho great white bow over tho table. There were games and music, fun and laugh ter at the party, but best of all, the pledgo was full, of names. Florence Stilwell could hardly keep from cry ing when she read in distinct letters "Bob Stilwell." She had no brother, hut she loved her cousin Bob, dearly, and "Bob had been going astray," she had heard her mother say, sorrowfully. Winter passed away, it was near Master. "Tho 'Temperance Ten' will have charge of the llowers on Faster," an nounced the superintendent. Never had been such a llower display in Fair field as there was that day, for the whole forty who had signed the pledgo helped. Tho dear, old-fashioned church blosomed and bloomed like veritable tlower garden. Vines climb ed over tho pillars and around the rail ings. Birds sang, and the church was sweet with the fragrance of "green things growing." On F.aster Sunday when tbe choir sang: "He is Risen I He ia Itlxcn 1" Hob Stilwcll's eyes filled with k!1 tcurs. "Ho has risen in my soul," he afd to himself. 'Ho has risen in my soul." Million (liven Away. It Is certainly gratifying to tho pub lic to know of ono concern which is not afraid to bo generous.

All the waters upon Its surface are poison, and down through the canyon a hot, Kifiocatins wind Mows with tenihle velocity. During Its course through tli desert It fre quently gathers clouds of white sand that have Minded many a horse and rider, and at frequent intervals It whirls down the canyon like a cyclone of sharp crystals. Under the Klisten jiff beds of salt and horax are conceal ed streams of salt water which flow sluggishly toward some unknown out let or may he lapped up hy the parched winds. One of the strangest phenomena of this extraordinary place I:' what fron tiersmen, for want of a better name, have called "raising earth." Hy the action of the sun a crust composed of minerals and clay has been formed on the surface, and by some curious pres sure of nature has been lifted from the earth In Irregular curves like pie crust In the oven. The cavity between this crust and the solid earth varies from one to ten feet, and the depth frequent ly changes after heavy windstorms by the displacement of the air beneath. The man or the animal that steps upon this crust Is gone forever. It Is abso lutely Impossible for any one to extri cate himself when plunging about In the "raising earth." Chicago Record. Took Her Cotmln Tlnoe. One day a young Swede, a student at the University of Derlin, received a letter from his uncle saying that his daughter, the young man's cousin, would stop in Berlin for a few days on her way to I'ms and would he kindly meet her and show. her the city. The mall coach arrived and with It the young lady, who found a fine looking young fellow with a vivid botitonnlere awaiting her arrival, lie accompanied her to the hotel. The following morn ing he called and took her driving In an elegant brougham. These atten tions continued during the three days of her visit. The lady appeared over Joyed at the gallantry of this cousin, whom she had never met before. On the day of her departure, while assisting her Into the mall coach, the young man said, "I cannot let you de part without making a confession." The lady blushed and dropped her ej-es. "I must tell you that I am not your cousin. Your cousin is a friend of mine. lie had no time to accompany you, having to cram for his examina tions, so he bade me take his place." "In heaven's name, who are you, then?" cried the lady. The young man handed her his card. The postilion blew his trumpet, the mall coach rolled away, ns the young lady read this name on the card: "Otto von Blsmarck."-Oirrent Literature. A Natural Wish.

In the late seventies Henry George, the single tax reformer, came east from California, lie was desperately poor and had but few acquaintances. Shortly after his arrival he lectured before the Saturday Ethical club of New York, when' his brilliant oratory and shabby attire made so striking a contrast as to excite the sympathy of those present. Alter he left the club appointed a committee to aid him In getting up a public lecture. Among others, the com mittee Included Seth Low, who was then engaged In business. He was In consultation at the time, and the com mittee were In a hurry, so he told them to fiend him a lot of tickets. They for warded L'U to him the same day and felt happy at having secured $'20 for the lecture fund. The next morning camo a letter of thanks from Mr. Low praising the lecturer's Intellectuality und inclosing a check for $1I."0. The affair was a success, netting about $:joO, so that President Low may be said to have been the first man to start Mr. George on his eastern career. Twenty years later, hi 1S'J7, Mr. Low was the citizens' candidate and Mr. George tho labor candidate for mayor of New York. The latter made a vig orous campaign and In all his speeches Idvlsed the citizens. If they could not vote for him, to vote for his friend Seth Low, and on one occasion he said that If It had not been for the latter he would not be there ns a candidate. Tew understood his full meaning. Saturday livening Tost. An t'nwelcome Visitor. While camped In the Wallapal mountains recently there came to my camp from off the Santa Fo Pacific an English overland tourist, and, after passing the usual salutations and greetings, the stranger proposed to Join the desert express train of burros and try tils luck prospecting. The first camp was made at Maggie Springs, where stood an old miner's cabin. In the morning he proioscd to help cook breakfast and built a rousing firo In the old fireplace of the cabin and start ed to fry the bacon. All at once a startled expression came from the em bryo cook, and, turning quickly, I dis covered a large king snake sizzling In the frying pan.
