Emily and Lawrence, came on a
t visit, goodness! aha didn't have time
. to turn around. Not only did she
hava the usual cares and responsibili
ties of little firls but fhe had a house
of ker own.
It happened Ilka this. Peggy's
grandfather used to be a fine carpen
ter, what they call a cabinet maker.
He was now ulte old and noj strong
enough to work at his trade ao he
lived with Peggy's folks and to amuse
' himself and pass the time ha began
buUdlnf t Utile model house at tha
end of their very long back yard.
First he dug the cellar and made
tha foundations, then he built the
walls and doors and windows and put
on tha roof of silvery shingle. The
house was too small for a irrown per
son unless such a person were willing
to crouch and wiggle through the lit-tla-

h'j ui us uoes not love na
ture, and enjoy b.lns out In
the garden ihe.-e beautiful
spring days, i- Many of us
like to be gardeners and tend
a garden plot of our very own. If
you have the ground In which to
wnk p!antlng,a garden will be very
easy. There are a few tools that ft Is
necessary for you to have: A large
fork, a small fork, a trowel, a water
ing can and a hoe. First of all dig
the garden deeply so that the loll will
be soft nnd the tender roots ef the
plants can more eaaily work their
way Into the earth. ' When the gar
den 1 di:s. then sow the seed. One
of the most Important points to re
member In seed sowing Is to sow
thinly. Onml s-ds to be sown In
April are Irrk-purs, popples, nastur
tiums, scarlet 1:num" snd dwarf con
volvulus. Som of the seeds may be
sown In s'raiBht Imes especially
where an edging is needed, others
This was a fine suggestion and when
Grandfather heard of it he said ht
would go too.
"Little oaks need other fast-growing
trees to shelter them," Grand
father aald. "We tnlghtt dig up a
few pines and spruce. There are a
lot In the pasture which will only
have to be cut down when they get
bigger." . '
"Armed with hoes, . spades and
trowels they were off In good spirits
on Arbor Day. The clrls had h

the nation's hero Washington.
Washington Irving stsnds au In
American letters as bclne among the
first whose works were recognlt d not
only at home bet abroad as being of
real literary merit.- As a young boy
Irving was very fond of reading. He
says of himself: "Books of voyages

spite of these longings Irving grew up
In a very prosaic way and at the age
of nineteen went to work In a law

spare moments he began writing little
humorous sketches for a paper edited
bv his brother. The confines of the

when he was twenty-one he became so
weak and frail that his family did not
think he would live. A (trip abroad
was advised and then It was that he
