lone costs over $1,000. The secret bal
lot la a fundamental principle, but se
crecy In voting may be accomplished In
different waya. The method In vogue
In New York state whereby the entire
delegations are required to pass before
the ballot box for each of the thirteen
officers to be elected, and aa often
again as no election may result, la al
together too clumsy and expensive,
both as to time and money, and what la
true of the state grange Is also true of
the Toniona and subordinate grange
where these methods are iouuw-u.
We believe the Pennsylvania system
U a marked Improvement over thU
one. In that state thirteen ballot box
are provided, one for each of the of
fices. Each delegate Is provided with
a ballot on which Is printed the name
of the thirteen offices to be filled, and
opposite each one he writes the nam
of the candidate for whom he desires
to vote.. The thirteen ballot boxes be
ing placed side by side In convenient
position, the delegate body passes be
fore the same, tearing off. first, the bal
lot for the master and depositing It;
second, for the overseer and depositing
. tnr th lecturer, and so on un
til' the entire list of thirteen offices
bas been Toted for. V hen mere is
majority on the first ballot the proc
ess of election la completed at one
time, and we are told It never requires
more than one session In Pennsylvania
to elect officers. This method can be
easily adapted by subordinate and To

Fruitland of Camden. Del. A commit
tee of fifteen of its members was ap
pointed to appear before the committee
of congress on rivers and harbors to
secure an appropriation for the widen
ing and deepening of Jones river. It Is
desired that steamers should run to
Philadelphia and New Tork daily to
accommodate the large and productive
fruit and trucking sections through
which the river runs. A committee
has also been appointed toconsider the
advisability of the grange purchasing
eeveral acres of land on some public
, approach to Camden, and erect thereon
an ideal grange home. The land sur
rounding the home will be arranged so
rt . ana-ffpstive of what each indi
vidual farm home should be. A por-

One of the most active counties in
New Tork state in grange work is St.
lawrence. At the last meeting of its
Pomona grange a committee was ap
pointed to devise some plan whereby
the Pomona grange should become the
custodian of a fund to De contriDuieu
by subordinate granges to found schol
arships for granger boys and girls at
Cornell Agricultural college. It also
formally placed Hon. George L. Flan
ders, now deputy commissioner of ag
riculture, in the field aa a candidate for
commissioner of agriculture. Mr.
Flanders was the last president of the
National Farmers' Congress and is a
member of the Order of Patrons of

Her father is a widower, and she
is hi onlv daughter, so when Mr.
Driver was elected mayor he decid
hould undertake such
of the duties of a mayoress as might
be performed by so mall young
woman. And, as the provincial
towns of England make almost as
much of their executives as London
does of its lord mayor, numerous o
cial functions already have made do
ia little rirl.
Not long ago she sat in a large
chair on a platform at the opening
of a church baiaar, and when the
chairman, who sat next to her, an
nounced that the mayoress would
make the formal opening iauu aroe
and in a voice which reached easily
all parts of the big room declared
firmly, "The show's open."
Shortly after having been the
guest of honor at the bazaar the
mayoress received an invitation to
distribute prizes at the towns
church schools. The mayor was
rather doubtful at first, fearing that
the presents mignt appeal io
daughter so strongly that she would ,
hesitate to turn them over to thej
winners, but the little girl handed
each gift to the pupils indicated!
without even a regretful look. So
well did she enjoy the proceedings.

as many of them had hardly dared
df earn about before, the little may
oress appeared and said a few timid
words of greeting.
A Difficult Bottle Feat.
Here we have the picture of a
boy with a bottle standing on the
back of his head. You will say per
haps that you can easily perform
that little feat, and we do not doubt
that vou can, but that is only the
first step in the amusing task that
we are going to set for you.
We want you, if you please, to
balance a bottle on the back of your
head and then to stoop down and
pick up a silver quarter from the
floor with your lips and rise again,
all without letting the bottle fall or
touching it with your hand. If you
think the experiment might be fa
tal to the integrity of the bottle
