Victor and Edwin, aged six and

seated at the table for dinner.
There were five older persons pres
ent and this was really the first
time that either of those kids had
been allowed to sit up for the big
meal of the day. Victor looked
across the snowy board as the des
sert was brought in, made a hasty
calculation and burst into a loud
and long wail.
“ What’s the matter, Victor?”

The coronet of a duke consists of
alternate crosses and leaves, the
leaves being a representation of the
leaves of the parsley plant. The
princes of the blood royal also wear
a similar crown. The state head-
gear of a marquis consists of a dia
dem surrounded by flowers and
pearls placed alternately. An earl,
however, has neither flowers nor
leaves surmounting his circlet, but
only points rising, each with a pearl
on the top. A viscount has neither
flowers nor points, but only the
plain circlet adorned with pearls,
which, regardless of number, are
placed on the crown itself. A baron
has only six pearls on the golden
border, not raised, to distinguish
him from an earl, and the number
of pearls render his diadem distinct
from that of a viscount.

the production of fruits and berries as any other section of the
Pacific Northwest, and development on these lines is going on.
Vegetables and berries of many kinds grow to perfection in
and adjoining Falls City, and many acres are planted to straw
berries nud loganberries. Market conditions are improving stead
ily, as production is increased.
Falls City has a 12-grade school with a four-year high school
course, with principal, assistant, and eight grade teachers. Its
diplomas are accepted by the higher schools in lieu of examina-
ations. The entire community is justly proud of the school.
