on my baking apron, and proceeded to

as I heard his step at tho door. I (lew to
tell him or my sniveia.
"They're all done, and they're beauti
ful, only 1 havon't put tho top on yet,"
w.is my greeting ns ho opened the door.
"And don't you know how your mother
used to do It and don't they"

"Why, come and see-p!es my pies
Ain't they nice? It I only knew how they

"Well, Dolly," said Timothy, as ho be

best of cooks."
I watn't ex.vctly tatifhVd, but raid
nothing, and sat down to the tabli wltlt
my enthusiasm somewhat abated. We
got through with the itenk and potatoes,
etc., and then I cut the p:e and brought
a plwe of It to Timothy. I thought It
seomed funny, as I peered between the
rruste, but concluded further remarks
from me might be better mir i!d, Wl
only seemed to expose my Ignorance.
Timothy looked at It rather suspiciously,
I thought, then balanced a dainty morsel
on his fork and tasted It. Il. swa. lowed
It by also taking a big drink of e.ifi'.e
to help It along, liitf instead of taking
any more, he put down hl; fork and
looked ueron the table at me, with nls
face drawn In spite of him into a smile.
"Dolly, how did you make this pie?"
"How?" I asked; "why, put tho pump
kin and covered It up. and tucked In

"Didn't you stew It?"
"What! the pie? No, of couivo not!"
I replied, Indignantly, thinking he .
"Oh. dear; I didn't know you had to,"

table broke out uncontrollably;, but It

come down here for a vlxlt, and show
you bow; then we'll have om. pes,

I lovtd Timothy's mother, so I was
ld to have her come. She had hardly
been In the house an hour when 1 drew
my chair up cloxe and asked her U' she
wou.u Degln at the beginning and tell
, me how to make pumpkin pies.
"Why, yes, child." sjl.1 she, taking oft

One day Timothy's mother rime over

the afternoon and must return next day
on the 11:20 train. I had some pumpkin
already stewed, ready for pls, and a

Then I told her my ruse about the pies,

hopes and fears with expectation and
trembling; but with final victory. I had
measured everything, from the salt to
the sugar, and I knew how. They came
out of tha oven rich and yellow, with a
tinge of brown over their 3hlning tops,
nnd a delicious odor that made Mother
Clover snfff her nose and say, as she
saw them In a row on the pantry shelf
"Well, well, Dorothy! Them beats mine.'
"I couldn't cat much dinner, I was In
nuh a hurry for pics. "Now, mother,
said Timothy, at last, "all ready for
some of that famous pie you promiseJ
The old lady gave a sly wink and went
into the kitchen, and brought In a large
pleee, handing It to Timothy, and one
also for his father. "That's It," Eald
Timothy, as soon as he tasted It, "the

The London Financial News say:
"While the political aspect of Bulgaria
and the Balkan states Is regardea with
keen interest by ail those who follow
the course of contlnc-nt.il evonUi, there
ore comparatively few who care or know
much about Bulgaria from a commercial
point of view. The principality has been
supposed to be moderately prosperous,
notwithstanding that it 1 a purely agri
cultural country, and, as far a3 Great
Gritain Is concerned. It takes a fair
Ehare of our manufactures. The people
are industrious and thrifty, and appear
to lie quite ready to adapt themselves to
the latest principles of co-operative com
1 blnation; in fact, so sensible are they
that one wonders how they can tolerate
the scandalous outrages on life nn l prop
erty that are so common in Soda, and
culminated in the murder of M. Stam-
buloff. Mr.' Vice-Consul Dalvlel reports
that Joint stock enterprise continues to
find great favor, and a company has
taken over the oldest private brewery in
Roustchouk, while another company has
bought up the rival private establishment
for making aerated wuters, and has now
a practical, monopoly, nearly all the sell
ers of the water being shareholders in
it. In Mr, Oalzlel's opinion, lli-j Bui
garlans will gradually establish joint
stock manufactories of almost everything
required In tho country, and as the
shares will' be In small amounts, they
will get every little dealer to be a share
holder. In addition to ths advantage or
combination there is another Incentive
to Joint-stock enterprise, because the first
undertaking of each sort "will be grant
ed Immunity from customs duty for a
number of years, an so placed In a fa
vorahle position to secure It against for
eign competition. It would appear, there
fore, that the Bulgarians have a pretty
good idea of business, and have quickly
caught on to the merits of trade combi
nations, "The general trade of Bulgaria In ISill
was not so good as In the previous year,
owing principally to the diminution w
the wheat exports on account of a noor
harvest and low agricultural prices. The
total exports amounted -to 2,91?.2A, of
which grain represented f2.23-i.852, and the
decrease of f.740,000 under this head, as
compared with 1833, is almost exactly ac
counted for by the smaller sum realized
for grain. Tho statistics show that 2;!2,0W
tons less grain were exported in lffli than
in 1893, with a decrease of 710,000 in
value, and the e'ffect of low prices Is il
lustrated 'by the fuct that while in 1891
the exports of grain were 33,500 tons larg
er than In 1S92, their value was about
73,0(iO less. On the other hand, the Im
ports last year amounted to 3,96:1,166, an
Increase of about flKO.rtOO over 1893, at
tributed to tha laying in of large stocks
In view of the new excise law. There
was, however, an increase of nearly 100,
000 In lmport3 unaffected by the new
law.vlz., In textiles, but It Is to be re
gretted that England derived no benefit
from It, since British exports to Bulga
ria under this head show a slight decline.
It may be doubted whether much reliance
can be placed on the otliclal figures, for
the custom house return of the export of
attar of roses is wholly inaccurate, ac
cording to our vlee-consul In Eastern
Itoumella. Returning to the general con
dition of Bulgaria, it must certuiniy be
admitted that, considering her Internal
troubles and her few years of Independ
ent political existent'?, progress has been
made which is encouraging fo:' the future."

It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years' use by
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
fevcrishncss. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,

"Castoria Is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Da. G. C. Osgood,
"Castoria Is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the
real interest of their childre'n, and use Castoria
instead of the various quack nostrums which
are destroying their loved ones, by forcing
opium, morphine, soothing syrup and othr
hurtful agents down their throats, thereby
(ending them to premature graves."
Da. J. F. KiNCHiiLOE,
" Castoria is so well adapted to children that
I recommend h as superior to any prescription
known to me."
H. A. Archer, M. T
hi So. Oxiord St., Brooklyn, N. Y.
"Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence In their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have among our
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet wc are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."
