A GOOD GRASS FOR WET LAND
Knglish blue rass is n very valuable
hay iiiul also makes a gnml pasture
Kriiss. In nearly nil the northern states
it is being grown more extensively
than in .yon I'M gone by. Kuglish blue
grass can he used to advantage where
permanent pasture is desired, it he-
ling sowed, however, with other grassi
mixtures is better Hum where sown I
n lone.
I This vacietv is n verv valimlilo grass
to sow on wet nnd moist lauds, as its
tondeiuy is to grow up very rapidly
and in this way keeps down coarser
grass ami weeds which otherwise would
grow and be of comparatively little val
ue for pasture or for hay. This grass
will thrive and grow in wet places ov
en where the cattle have trampled it
down. t
In time it forms n good sod and is
not easily killed out like other similar
grasses such as some .if tiie clovers and
Kentucky blue grass.
The Kentucky blue grass will grow
well on some meadow bind but its ton
deiuy is to full over if intended for
hay, and if pastured the laud soon be
comes weedy nnd the blue grass is only
seen in bunches here nnd there nbout
the meadow. Knglisli blue grass, or ns
some cull it, "Meadow rescue, is,
particularly adaptable to heavy, clayey!
soils.
We usually sow this grass in the full,
sometime during the latter part of Au
gust or in September, and without u
nurse crop. We liuve also sown this
urns in the sorinir with good results.
A good seed bod. one that is fine
and firm, is necessary for the proper
germination of this n well ns other
kind of grass seed sown.
The seed can be snwn broadcast and
covered with a harrow but I believe it
is much bettor to drill it iu covering
iust a trifle more lighllv nnd drilling
about twenty pounds of seed to tho
acre is .just about right for a nice stund
This 'gruss does not yield ns much
hay as timothy, but when established
the meadow will live longer and It can
be grown on land where timothy will
not thrive. Farm Life.

After saying his prayers at night the
seven-year-old son of pnrcuts in Larch-
inoiit announced tnat lie was ao tired
of the kind of life he was compelled
to lend that he believed there was noth
ing for him to do but run away. The
father considered the matter thought
fully and then said;
" tieorge, if that is the way you feel
there is money in my purse here. You
may take it all."
The boy packed lis grip, got to the
front door, came back on the ground
of having forgotten his toothbrush, and
went upstairs again. Tho parents were
much disturbed to know what he would
do. He oioued the front door, went
out on tho veranda, and all was silent.
The father and mother looked at each
other but thought the course they had
adopted the best, and hence did not
make a move.
After 15 minutes of intense anxiety
the door opened and a boy's voice call
ed out; "Say, dad, if I'm going away

Her Hat Will Be Purple
Velvet Just Because
Fashion Show Says So
Chicago, Aug. 12. Her hat will be
purple velvet. Fashion dictators at
today's session of the Chicago Garment
Manufacturers' Fall Style show at Bis
inarck said so today,.
If it isn't purple velvet it will be
brown velvet, or black velvet. There
will be a great deal of velvet in wo
men's hats this fall, especially for the
milliners.
Women's fall wearing apparel con
tinued the center of attraction today
for Chicago visitors attending the
show.
Not the least of this show was the
display of hats. The purple ones
seemed to nttract the most attention,
probnbly because the wholesalers had
whispered that "women will like the
purple ones," and "they're all the
rage,'' and a few other well directed
remarks that make "thia year's styles"
always the prettiest.
After the purple velvets, buyers plan
ned to take home with them for their
trade brown velvets, black velvets and
a lot of chic, wide brimmed, white
hats with a bright colored crown and a
narrow ribbon to match the crown, on
the brim.
The sport hat this fall Is a floppy
felt affair with not much of anything
on it but a band.
"They'll take, though," wholesalers
said.
COMING HOME IN THE DARK
The tunnel was dark, the tunnel was
long,
And the lights had all gone out.
The temptatiou was assuredly strong
I Of that there could be uo tlouDt,
She was sitting Dy me, a portly miss
Of thirty summers, or less;
When a notion struck me that I would
kiss
That vision of loveliness!
Though the risk was great, I thought
it worth while,
For I was full of romance,
And to steal a kiss iu a furtive style
The pleasure could but enhancet
So when we had come to the darkest
part
I gave her a silent smack,
When I dido 't expect if b!es my
heart!
If she didn't kiss me back!
We gased at each other in shy sur
prise, When from the tunnel we sped,
The other passengers must have got
wise,
For our cheeks were burning red.
At the same depot we left the train,
When I lost my charmer fair,
I thought I should never see her again,
For which I didn't much care,
But. when I got home, there was the
maid.
And she gave me such a look,
"Who is that, mothert" I asked. She
said,
Why, Bobby, that's our new cook! "

A writer of an article on how to avoid

ed the first. Very helpful to the farm
er's wife with six children, for in
stance! A huge part of the heartache and dis
appointment connected with parenthood
comes from regarding a child not as an
individual with n right to live his own
life, make his mistakes and profit by
them, but as a choice personal posses
sion, whose chief duty is to "reflect
credit" on his parents.
Services done out of a hard sense of
