b. abortly.
"I understand yoj- lutereat in the mat

The Sijrnorina appeared a little em
barraed. But at !at ahe broke out :
"I don't care if I do tell you. When
I decided to tay here I had $.70,000. He
j-ierauaded me to put it all into bin horrid

The President had certainly combined
bualneaa and pleaaure in thia matter.

"And If that ?oe, I am pnni!ea

She looked enchanting. But bualneaa

"What arw you going to do?"
"Wa ara going, with your help, Mar

ly, for the Slgnorina atruck In, In a hih
merry tone, waving ber glovea over her
head, with theae remarkable worda :
"Hurrah for the Revolution! Hip! hip!
hurrah !"
The Slgnorina looked like a Goddeaa of
Freedom in high apirita and a Paria bon
net. She broke forth Into the "Maraell
Ihi." "For merey'a Bake, be quiet I" said Mc
Gregor, in a boarae whiaper. "If tbey

"Kindly unfold your plan, Colonel," I
said. "I am aware that out here you
think little of revolutiona, but to a new
comer they appear to be matters requir

ouly three."
"I have the army with me," said he,
"In the outer office?" aaked I, Indulg
ing In a sneer at the dimensions of the
Aureataland forces.
"Look here, Martin," he said, scowling,
"if you're coming in with us, keep your
Jokes to yourself."

Flgnorlna. "It's a waete of time. Tell

"No," I replied. "You said you would

"Very neat. Jack." she aald. But she
went and opened the door and called to
MoCregor, "Mr. Martin aea no objection
to the arrangement, and he will come to
dinner to-night, aa you suggest, and talk
over the details. We're all going to make
our forturjes. Mr. Jones," he went on.
without waiting for any acceptance of her
implied invitation, "and when we've rnado
ours, we'll think about you and Mrs.
I heard Jones make some noise Inco
herently suggestive of gratification, for
he was as bad as any of us about tb Slg
norina, and then I was left to my reflec
tions. These were less somber than the
reader would, perhaps, anticipate. True,
I was putting my head Into a noose; and
if the President's hands ever found their
way to the end of the rope, I fancied he
would pull It pretty tight. But, again, I
waa Immensely In love, and equally In
debt. To a young man, life without love
Un't worth much ; to a man of any age,
In my opinion, life without money Isn't
worth much ; It becomes worth still less
when lti is held to account for money he
ought to have. So I cheerfully entered
upon my biggest gamble, holding the stake
of life well risked. My pleasure In the
affair was only marred by the enforced
partnership of McGregor. There was no
help for this, but I knew he wasn't much
fonder of me than I of him, and I found
myself gently meditating on the friction
likely to arise between the new President
and bla minister of finance. In case our
plans succeeded. Still the Slgnorina hat
ed him, and by all signs she loved me. So
I lay back in my chair, and recalled my
charmer's presence by whistling the hymn
of liberty until it waa time to go to lunch.
The morning meeting bad been devoted
to principles and to the awakening of
enthusiasm ; in the evening the conspira
tors condescended upon details, and we
held a prolonged and anxious conference
at tike Slgnorlna's. Mrs. Carrlngton waa
commanded to have a headache after din
ner, and retired with it to bed ; and from
ten till one we sat and conspired. The
result of our deliberations was a pretty
plan, of which the main outlines were as
follows i
This was Tuesday. On Friday night,
the Colonel, with twenty determined ruf
flans (or resolute patriots) previously
bound to him, body and soul, by a dona
tion of no less than fifty dollara a man.

"Come, that's more like sense, said
tbe Colon-!, approvingly.
The Sijrnorina sighed, but opposed us
no longer.
Returning to ways and mans, we ar
ranged for communication in case of need
daring the next three days without the
necessity of meeting. My position as tbe
center of financial business In Whifting
ham made this easy; th ptsssge of bar.k
messengers to and fro would excite little
remark, and the msags could easily be
so expressed as to reval nothing to an
unlnstructed y. It was further agreed
tbat on the smallest hint of danger reach
ing any one of nt, the word should at
once be p;isd to the others, and we
should rendezvous at the Colonel'a
"rnr.h " hleh lav citna seven ml-es from

case, escape would be more possible,
"And now," said the Colonel, "If Mar-
tin will hand over tbe dollars, I tninir .
that's about all."

Kamlaratlon to I'roleet Orebarda.
In Germany some intertntlnjj; expt-rl-nienU
have recently U-en made In the
protection of orchard treeu a'aiiit

. part of an orchard In bloom was thus
, Buoeessfully tf'iardej against an April
frost by tbe dense smoke of naptha-
Hut ttie e v iMrl men t u-nrf vert. ..v.
. kl,(,ram), of ,ial,thtl.alene
belli, consumed by seven flames lu one
hour. Later a new preparation of chem
icals was tried, producing a compara
tively large volume of smoke with the
exjetidlture of only two kilograms of
the material per hour. These trials are
under the direction of an experimental
gardening association.
Palllnar Old Fenrat Posts.
Fasten chain to post close to the
ground, pass It over the wheel of an
ordinary corn planter, hitch team to
chain and go ahead. It don't damage
the wheel and the broad tire keeps it
from sinking Into the ground.
Setting; Fence I'osts.
Some farmers argue that it Is host to
set posts early In the fall, when the
ground Is solid. Of course, a post care
fully set at any time will remain In its
place, but the fall season is really a
much worse time than In the spring.
Digging the hole makes the soli loose,
and if done in the fall It has not time
to become compact again. Water fil
ters down through the loose soil, which
will raise the pout a little every year
until It throws it out altogether. If
the soil has time to settle It absorbs
less moisture, and after the first year,
If the heaving out has not already be
gun, It will rarely begin.
Anlbrai and Karth Worms.
From recent experiments it la cer
tain that earth worms are responsible
for couveylng the spores and anthrax
from rarlous burled carcasses to the
surface of the earth and thus bringing
about a reinfection. This process of re
infection was urged by M. Louis Pas
teur, but without success.

Urea and Smoklnsr.
Many times lH-e are smoked more
than Is necessary; perhaps, because not
every one knows that during a nectar
flow some honey Is lost every time a
hive is opened, says Farming. When
In-es are smoked they fill themselves
with honey and If so much smoke Is
used that most of the U-es In the hive
at that time take honey, It will be
more than an hour before It Is rcdepos
ltcd Into the cell and the regular work
resumed. Bees sometimes gather nec
tar enough to make a pound of honey
an hour, so one can see that It would
be quite a loss If every colony In a
fulr sized apiary were smoked enough
to Interrupt the work for one hour.

Cream left to Itself will become sour
spontaneously. This la the result of
the growth of lactic acid bacteria,
which feed ujon tho milk sugar, and
as a final process convert It Into a lue
tic acid. Other forms of bucterla are
always present lu cream; some have
little or no effect In tho ripening proc
ess, while others, If allowed to de
velop, produce undeHlrablo and often
obnoxious flavors. To cultivate and de
velop these "wild" germs Is called
"spontaneous" rljienltig, and Is often ut
tended with uncertainty: Good butter
making demands the ue of a "starter,"
either home-made or a pure culture.
Tho former should be made of selected
skim milk.
Keeping Hons Clean.
To give the pigs a thorough scrub
bing may appear to be lubor thrown
away, but If two lots of pigs ure treat
mi alike In every reflect, except that
one lot receives a thorough scrubbing
with soapsuds once lu a while, there
will be a marked difference lu favor
of the hogs that are washed when the
time for slaughter arrives, a clean
bed of straw with a dry house, so as
to afford them comfort at night, will
also promote thrift and growth. The
bog la naturally a cloauly animal and
enjoys a bath. If considered a filthy
animal, that devours filthy food, it Is
because of the treatment given. Hogs
will select clean and wholesome food
If given the opportunity to do so.
