The dance and the whirl go on,
And the jealousy and the strife;
And the summer conies and the summer
And the sum of it all is Life.
And some would give their kingdom for
And some their kingdom for gain;
And some would give their earthly all
Just to be young again.
But 'tis neither the love nor the gain,
Nor the youth that has vanished past;
Nor the sun, nor the dew, nor the heat,
nor the rain,
That brings happiness at last.
It is only the love of God,
Filling wide the heart of man;
It is only the lips which gently speak
In the accents of His plan.
It is only an uplifted face,
And a hand that is stretched to ail
But somehow the love, and the youth,
and the gain.

All day the blue eyes haunted him.
They came between him and his

severely, he had no time for such non

Weeks passed and the memory of the
eyes was fading Into a regret. The
sensible lectures which Howard had
not failed to administer to himself be

was absurd to hope to find those blue

Howard told himself that he was a

A. stranger had called the nearest phy

afraid my father will die." The sweet,
girlish tones were eloquent of distress.
Howard dressed himself hastily and
went down-stairs. He could scarcely

boarding-house keeper, awaiting him
in the hall.
"I am so glad you've come,! she said.
"Mr. Wharton is awfully sick, and the
poor young lady, his daughter, is 'most
scared to death."
The patient was so ill as to occupy
the doctor's entire attention. Mrs. Mad
ison gave him the efficient assistance
which he had learned to expect from
uer in such emergencies. She was ably
seconded by Miss Wharton, whom
Howard scarcely noticed.
The battle was for life. Hours passed
before it was won and the tired but
glad physician was free to go.

By an Invention of Prof. Pupin of Co
As a result of discoveries and in

within the lifetime of this generation
the sound of the human voice may be
made to encircle the globe. Ocean tele

electrical engineers who have studied
the discoveries of Prof. Pupin and upon
whose opinion the officials of the Bell

one-half million in cash for his patents
and a royalty of $15,000 annually dur

At present it is possible to talk 1,000
miles by telephone; when Prof. Pupln's

be no limit to the distance that one

Finding His Bat.
Robbie's hat was lost. He could not
find It anywhere, and his mother was
waiting for him to go out and do an
errand for her.
"Hurry up, Robbie!" she said, coming
into the sitting room. "I must have
that yeast cake right away."
"I can't find "my hat!" said Robbie,
beginning to search in e;very nook and
corner. "I guess, mamma, you will
have to get somebody else to do that
errand for you. I can't go downtown
Just then a wagon drove into the
yard, and Uncle Will's voice cried out:
"Where's Robbie? I want to take
him out to the farm."
"Here I am, Uncle Will I'm com
ing!" cried Robbie.
And what do you suppose? in less
than two seconds Robbie's hat was on
his head, and he was bounding out into
His mother could hardly help smiling
at the suddenness with which the little
lad had found bis hat after he really
wanted to; but she knew that it would
not do to let his deceit go unpunished,
so she hurried out into the yard. Rob
bie was Just scrambling up into the
"Uncle Will," said his mother, "Rob
bie was going to do an errand for me,
but it took him so very long to find his
hat until he heard you call that I am
afraid he will not be back in time to
go out to the farm with you to-day."
"Ah!" said Uncle Will; "I see. No,
Robbie, do not think I can wait for you
to-day. But some other day, when your
hat doesn't keep you from getting
mamma's errands done first, we will
have a fine ride out to the farm."
Robbie felt his disappointment, you
may be sure. But he was an honest
minded chap, and by the time he had
returned with his mother's yeast-cake
he was quite ready to admit in his own
heart that his punishment was just
what he deserved.'
' "And, mamma," he said, as he kissed
her lovingly, "I don't think I shall ever

As a little lass the Korean girl is
taught all about domestic work, and be
gins early to assist her mother in mak
ing the family clothes. If too young to
paste she can at least -hold over the
stove the long iron rod to be used In
pressing seams. The heating of this
roi ls the first thing taught a little girl.
Later she learns how: to paste clothes
together, then to wash and iron them.
Now, this use of paste instead of
thread is a custom, so far as I know,
practiced only by the Koreans. It is
done on account of their mode of iron
ing. To accomplish this difficult feat
they rip their garments to pieces be
fore putting them in water. After the
washing, garments are laid on a smooth
block of wood or stone and are beaten
with ironing sticks. These sticks re
semble a policeman's club, and each
Ironer uses two.
Girls and boys wear their hair hang
ing in two plaits until engaged to be
married, after which the boy fastens
his on top of his head and the girl
twists hers at the nape of her neck.
Koreans hold marriage in high regard,
and show a married man profound re
spect while a bachelor is treated by
them with marked contempt. I have
seen men greet a slip of a boy wearing
a topknot with ceremonious deference,
saying to each other: "He is a man;
he is about to be married," while of a
much older man, and possibly a richer,
who wears his two plaits, they remark
that "He is a pig. He cannot get a
wife. He will always be a boy."
In the choice of his first bride the
Korean leaves everything to the "go
between." But all other wives, and a
Korean may have ten, the man makes
his own selection. Women are well
treated, and, as a rule, live happy, con
tented lives. They are gentle, attrac
tive bodies and devoted to their homes.
Versus of Chil lhood.
At evening, when the lamp is lit,
Around the fire my parents sit;
They sit at home and talk and sing,
And do not play at anything.
Now, with my little gun, I crawl,
All in the dark along the wall,
And follow round the forest track,
Away behind the sofa back.
There, in the night when none can spy.
All in my hunter's camp I lie,
And play at books that I have read
Till it is time to go to bed.
When I am grown to man's estate
I shall be very proud and great
And tell the other girls and boys
Not to meddle with my toys.
Every night my prayers I say,
And get my dinner every day;
And every day that I've been good
I get an orange after food.

With lots of toys and things to eat

Plaything: j of Kojral Folks.
The Prince of Wales as a boy was
very fond of a toy fortress and the toys
he and the other little royal folks played
with years ago are now brought from
their hiding place, so that the present
young ones of the reigning family may
play with them at Osborne house. The
children of the Duke of York take great
delight In the former toy fortress of
the Prince of Wales, with Its mounted

were more than fifty years ago. Then

its trunk up and down and with mouth
open, and a bagatelle board all are en

Many children who are not of royal
birth play with costlier toys than these.
The children of Queen Victoria's daugh
ter. Princess Beatrice of Battenberg,
have playthings that are very plain,
such as gardening tools, scrap books,
common story books and cheap dolls.
When the present Czar of Russia was
a child his playthings were toy forts
and cannon and tin soldiers, .picture
books with colored battle scenes. His
chief reading was short stories about
them, and he knew by heart the great
war history of his own country. After
this boy became a Czar and ruled the
whole country he realized how his peo
ple were suffering on account of taxa
tion necessary to pay the expenses of
this vast military machine, and he pro
posed a conference of all the powers of
Europe with a view of persuading them
to disband their armies.

Persons who still cling with some
love to old ways and old fashions will
read with approval Temple Bailey's
dainty little lament over the "Passing
of the Grandmother" in the Woman's
Home Companion. He says, in part:
"The status of the grandmother of
the past was fixed and immovable.
Having once acquired the title she was
allowed 'no other. Her individuality
as woman, wife and mother was lost
and she was ever afterward recognized
as one who should set aside all person
al ambition and dedicate herself to
the care of her children's children.
"To-day we have few grandmothers
of that type. Secure In the doctrine of
individual rights, the grandmother of
modern times declines to sacrifice her
life to the demands of others. Her
life is her own, she argues; she has
raised her own children, and now is
her time, for rest; her daughter must
attend to the rising generation.
"But from the children's standpoint
the passing of the grandmother is a
calamity. They will read the stories
of the past, and will long for the tender
hearts and willing hands that gave
themselves In service. Perhaps the
hearts are just as tender to-day, but
the hands are engaged in other work,
and childish minds have a strange way
of looking for actions rather than
motives. The children want the grand
mother whose kitchen Is a fairy-land
of spicy odors and forbidden sweets,
not the grandmother who drives them
to the fine candy-shop and treats them
to chocolates and Scotch kisses. In
their small minds, better is the corn in
the popper with molasses-taffy made
at home than ice cream and marrons
glace from the confectioner. The mod
ern child may have many advantages,
but' he will still envy his ancestors
who in childhood sat and watched the
molasses bubbling, bubbling, as it boil
ed in a cauldron, the fire-light making
flickering shadows as their grand
mother told them tales of primitive
days, of bears and Indians and wars."

Kicking: Horse 3.
Many years ago we were run away
with by an old horse, because some
older person would not trust us to har

so close that he hit his heels. Some
horses would have kicked the sleigh to
pieces, but we were-able to- guide him
for two or three miles without any
greater damage than bruising the
horse's legs a little. Since then we
have seen a colt that would allow the
whiffletree to hit his heels without any
protest excepting to come down to a
walk and step carefully, while another
horse we owned would stop so short as
to almost throw us over the dasher
whenever a strap gave way. It was all
a matter of early training, and while
every one should see before starting out
that the harness is In good condition,
those who raise the colts can easily
train them so they will neither run
away nor kick in case of an accident

Hay and Stock Scales.
A correspondent tells of a farmer who
decided to put in stock scales. While
waiting for them he had an offer for a
lot of cattle at a certain price for the
lot, or at so much per pound. He asked
for time to decide, and when the scales
came he hustled them Irto place and
weighed the cattle, with the result that
they brought $12 more when weighed
than they would have brought at the
lump price offered by the buyer. All
large farmers should have such scales,
not only in buying and selling, but they '
need them when fattening stock, that
they may see whether the gain each
week is paying for the food.
Whole Corn in the Silo.
It Is claimed that when the ensilage
corn is good enough to yield from 70 to

as much corn as needs to be fed with it
and the grain ration should be bran,

this, cornmeal should be added. But
something depends upon the dry fodder

With clover hay to. furnish protein,
more corn may be used to supply the

Profits in Small Things.
That farmer is fully up to his priv
ileges when he and the matron can
make enough from the poultry, the
small fruits, the truck Datch and the
orchard to defray expenses of the table,
clothing and other necessities and
luxuries of a personal nature.
If he does this the staples, horses, cat
tle, sheep and hogs which may be sold
can be used in buying a son and daugh
ter a few acres, etc., to commence life
with, or perchance to build a barn or
mansion. Such farming is profitable,
and within the capabilities of the ma
jority of farmers.
Alfalfa and Cream.
The cream from cows that have been
fed on alfalfa will average about 10 per
cent of the milk. A sample of every con
tribution is taken in a little glass jar
by Western creameries, hermetically
sealed and marked with the date and
the farmer's number and put away on
a shelf until the attendant has time to
analyze it and record the value of the
contribution it represents. The farmer
is paid from 2 to 4 cents a quart, ac
cording to the richness of the milk and
the local demand.
Old Apple Trees Need Food.
When you clean up the henhouse
wheel the guano out among the small
fruit and young trees. There is no better
fertilizer under the sun. If you have any
left over wheel it into the orchard. The
old apple trees are as greedy for food,
and more so, than young trees. It is
folly of the biggest kind to expect trees
to go on and on bearing heavy loads of
good fruit and starve them. They need
food just as much as you do.
Books on the Farmstead.
Lots of books should be about the
farmstead, so that the boys and girls
will grow up to be intelligent men and
accomplished women. If they early ac
quire a taste for good reading it will
save them froi much foolishness and
the parents often from anxiety. Books
are cheap, and there can be no legal
excuse for a farm home not being the
home of useful Intelligence.
Feeding; Value of Roots.
An exchange says: "In estimating
the feeding value of such crops as beets,
turnips, etc., the value of 100 pounds of
beets is placed at 19 cents, rutabagas at
15 cents and the ordinary turnips at 11
cents. This makes these foods cheap
compared with some kinds, and they are
also beneficial outside of their actual
