was on icr way to some 'amoui
health resort In Hwltzormml. and
Hope, having finished hor weekly let

"Has Mrs. Bavlllo returned!" asked
Hope of the waiter who attended their

"Not yet, mademoiselle," ho roplled.

her hand to Lumley; but he did not

"If you will allow mo, I will com

ao much decision that alio fell It would

out ou the Tullerlea gardens, wher
Hop took off her hat, Intending to
supply him with a newspaper and
leave him to hla own reflections. 1li

Having walked to tho window and
looked out for a minute, Lumley re
turned and cloied the door. Btandlng
between It and Hopo. he said, very
quietly, "TbU Is tho Ilrst chance I

A Missouri farmer haa just given
his way, whloh we think Is a good
way, of feeding corn fodder to make

pick over and are then thrown Into
the stable and stalls for bedding. Ho
claims that ttover cut Into shorter

over, that It helps to keep the stalls

ways. Whore these abort lengths of
