Don't D.inaiiil Hi. Kurth.
If you go to tho country don't look for
all tho city conveniences. There is '
vague idea that country people pay little
or nothing for many things; therefore
tho stranger expects a great deal for a
email expenditure. While it is quite
true that tho actual cost "of living is
much less on a farm than in town, still
there are items of expense greater in the
country. City improvements when'graf t
ed on country life Income expensive lux
uries, jtwt as irreproachable cream, but
ter and eggs "are the most costly items of
city housekeeping. , We would feel just
ly hurt if some farmer folk boarding in
our New York home should expect a
large tennis court, quantities of flowers,
fruit and rich milk without seeing that
these made a drain upon the household
finances. So exercise a little common
sense yourself. Ladies' Ilome Journal.

year he wrote" an invocation to the sun

poetry and pathos. At the age of 20 he

poetry, and soon alter abandoned the
muse because, as he said, he could

corrupt nobility had dnven the ship ol
state. Little was aone to relieve tne
famine, and the moans of the hnnzrjr
ones broke out into a sullen roar that
boded no good to the throne of the Ca
pets. The echo of that terrible cry
reached the palace at Versailles, where
Marie-Antoinette, the beautilni wile oi
lxuia XVI., held her court. When she
heard the threatening voices of her suf
fering subjects, she asked what they
" They are crying for bread which they
cannot get," answered her courtiers
"If they cannot buy bread, mur
mured the dreamy and impractical
Queen, " why do they not buy cake it
is cheap eno g t?"
This answer was carried to the mob,
and a derisive cheer went up fr'ora the
hungry crowd. Matterings against the
juxuryof the rich while the poor were
starving swelled little by little. A cry was
raised, " Down with the baker and the
baker's wife!" and the Parisians, hun
gry as they were, caught the significance
of the nicknames. This was the first
blow struck at the monarchy. Loui
XVI. and Marie Antoinette were known
to the Parisian mob as the baker and
the taker's wife, and the unfortunate
answer of the Queen when her subject
were starving was rmembered nntil the
guillotine had severed the destinies of
the house of Capet from those of France.
Little more than one hundred yearat
later another cry is heard. This time in
America. It is not a cry for quantity of
bread, but of quality. Everywhere adul
teration is common in articles of food,
and especially the twin poisons ammonia
and alum are used to adulterate our bak

manufacturers. Manv States havesttiflr,

fail to ch"ck the evil. It is on the in
