The Enchanted Hen.
N'CE upon a time there was a poor
man who, when he made his will.
had nothing to leave his children but
This man had two sons, Peter and
Pinto, and a daughter named Elsa.
Soon after he made this will the old
man died, and the sons took their hens
and started to the city to sell them.
"We will take the money and buy a
new coat; we can take turns in wear
ing it," they said.
Elsa did not know what to do with
her hen, but the night before the broth
ers started for the city she heard them
planning to take her hen also and sell
it, which woujd leave her without any
So Elsa stole out after her brothers
were asleep and took the hen into her
room and shut it in the closet. When
Elsa went to the closet the next morn
ing she was surprised to find that her
hen had laid a golden egg. "You can
not eat -this." said the hen, "but you
can take it to the city and sell it for
more than your brothers will get for
their hens. But do not tell how you
came by it." , '
Elsa went to the city as the hen di
rected and sold her golden egg. Then
she bought a handsome dress and a new
hat and shoes and some food for her
dinner and returned home before her
Peter and Pinto had taken their hens
to market and sold them; then they
went to a shop and bought a handsome
coat, but they could not decide which
one should wear it nrst; so the snop
keeper decided that, as Peter was the
older, he should wear it first, and when
he was half way home he should let
Pinto wear it the rest of the way.
When they reached the place where
Pinto was to have the coat, Peter did
not want to take it off. This made
Pinto angry, and he pulled the coat.
trying to get it, and in the struggle it
was torn, and before Pinto could get
it on a robber came out of the woods
and stole the coat and ran away.
The next day the hen laid another
golden egg, and Elsa went to the city
to sell it. While, she was gone the
brothers stole the hen and started to
the city. "This time we will divide the
money," they said, "and there will be
nothing to quarrel over.
But on the way Peter, who was car
rying the hen under his arm, suddenly
felt something very heavy, and, look
ing, he found he was carrying a stone.
This made him very angry, and he
threw it on the ground and declared
that Pinto had in some way stolen the
hen and put the stone in its place. They
began to dispute over it, and Elsa saw
them on her way back from the city.
"What are you quarreling about?"
Peter and Pinto did not want to tell
her they had stolen her hen. so they
said: "We were looking for you and
were trying to decide whether we had
better keep on or go back, as it is get
Just then something grunted beside
Elsa, and, looking down, she saw a nice
fat pig, for the stone Peter had thrown
to the ground had become a pig. i
Elsa pu$ a piece of string around Its
neck and led it home, for her two broth
ers did not dare claim it after what had
The hen was in the yard when they
arrived home, and Elsa did not suspect
anything, but that night Elsa heard a
noise, and when she looked out of her
window she saw her bi other tying her
pig and the hen into a bag. She ran out
and tried to stop them, but they pushed
her away and ran down theroad.
Peter and Pinto had not gone far
when the bag became so heavy that
they could not carry it. "Let us open
it and see what is the matter. That pig
and hen should not be too heavy for
us to carry, said Peter.
When they opened the door the hen
and the pig had disappeared, and in
their place they found twd" rocks. The
brothers looked at each jother. Each
suspected the other, and they began to
quarrel. iMsa, looking down the road
saw them and hurried to see what had
happened. But Just as she reached the
bag a cow and horse stood in place of
me two stones, and Elsa led them home.
The wicked brothers followed, and
were surprised to see the pig and the
nen waiting lor them in the yards.
iou are very wicked boys. said
Elsa; "you stole my hen and Die and
lert me to starve, but you are my broth
ers, and I cannot have you sent to
prison. What shall I do with them?'
she asked, turning to the hen, who, by
mis time, nasa knew was enchanted.
"Make them work," replied the hen
that is the best thing for boys who
will not behave, and the next time they
try to steal me or anything else on this
farm they will find something worse

Peter and Pinto began to tremble.
and promised to be good and help Elsa
about the farm if the hen would not
turn them into a running river.

surely that is what the civilized world

arbitration would not only do away

these: A man representing himself to

Or., appeared at the bank and present
ed a check signed "Frank E. Turner"
and calling for $1655. He wanted to
deposit the check to his credit, but Uie
bank refused. The officers accepted
it only for collection and advanced no
money on it. The check was sent to
the bank at Independence against

with the Information that it was a for
gery. Meanwhile the man had bought some
goods in Portland and written checks
against the Hlbernia Savings Bank, but
these checks were not honored. Conse
quently the bank lost nothing. The

Mrs. Baker So Weak Could
Not Do Her Work Found
Relief In Novel Way.
Adrian, Mich. "I suffered terribly
with female weakness and backache and
got so weak that I
could hardly do my
work. When I
washed my dishes I
had to sit down and
when I would sweep
the floor I would get
so weak that I would
have to get a drink
every few minutes,
and before I did my
dusting I would have
to lie down. I got
so poorly that my folks thought I was
going into consumption One day I
found a piece of paper blowing around
the yard and I picked it up and read it.
It said 'Saved from the Grave,' and
told what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegeta
ble Compound has done for women. I
showed it to my husband and he said,
Why don't you try it ? ' So I did, and
after I had taken two bottles I felt
better and I said to my husband, 'I don't
need any more, and he said ' You had
better take it a little longer anyway."
So I took it for three months and got
well and strong." Mrs. Alonzo E.
Baker, 9 Tecumseh St., Adrian, Mich.
Not Well Enough to Work.
In these words is hidden the tragedy
of many a woman, housekeeper or wage
earner who supports herself and is often
helping to support a family, on meagre
wages. Whether in house, office, fac
tory, shop, store or kitchen, woman
should remember that there is one tried
and true remedy for the ills to which all
women are prone, and that is LydiaE.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. It
promotes that vigor which makes work
easy. The Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine:
