prattlers have patience and enjoy them while you may They will not trouble you long They willow up nothing on earth grows so fast as children It was but yesterday and that lad was playing with toys a buoyant boy He is a man and gone now There is no more childhood for him nor for us Life has claimed him When a beginning is made it is like a raveling stock ing stitch by stich gives way until all are gone The house has not a child in itthere is no more noise in the hall boys rush in pellmell it is very orderly now There are no more skates or sleds bats balls or strings left scattered around things are neat now There is no delay now for sleepy folks there is no longer any task before you lie down or looking after anybody and tucking in the bed clothes Oh for some childrens noise wouldtmakeea little noise on the premises A home without children is like a garden dno flowers We want to be tired to be vexed to be run over to hear children at work with all its varieties Ex Correspondents

Landone president of a Los Angeles institute and chairman of the new internatona educational corn mittee was in Chicago several days ago to select twelve children to be brought up under a new method by Which he says it is possible to make a child anything a guardian wishesgood badpr indifferent sweet tempered or quarrelsome if it only is placed in the proper environments and surrounded with the neces sary equipment to develop the desired qualities Dr Landone states that his own method is unlimited and that the age of the child and its own environment and training offer no interference- I have taken charge of a number of unruly children and placed them in an atmosphere of refinement surrounded by cultured children and kept them in constant contact with these conditions In some cases the evolution took a long time but in the end it was invariably successful Some of my greatest successes have been in developing the quality of cour age in children by constantly bringing them into contact with little things that tend to bring out this trait I can inIventivety Dr Laudones methods make absolutely no provision for lecturingyscold Ing and punishing as in his opinion these have been tried since the be ginning of the world with little or no success One of the most needed qualities in this day and age is the quality of ex ecutiveness says Dr Landone and It is niy ambition to make this the pre- domInating trait to be developed in my coming experiments NEW VARIETY OF POOL GAME St Louis Man Invents One Called Stripes and Spots Harry T Mathews of St Louis has originated a new game of pool and it bids fair to become popular Heres the idea theIseven stripes on the outside The 1 ball is placed in the middle A chooses the stripes and B the spots A plays only to poct the stripes B goes after only the spots The 1 ball is the odd one After A or B has counted his seven lie goes after the 1 ball The one pocket ing it wins the game IIf a player pockets the 1 ball before has run out his seven he forfeits the game The game is a cross be tween continuous pool and French pool It can be played with one two or more players on a side PLAN TO PURIFY KENTUCKY Series of Mass Meetings to

Copyright 1909 by American Press Asso elation Queen Margaret Caroline Frances Josephine Stephanie Lucille Eulallede Raganza succeeded to the throne at twenty under the title of Margaret III From her earliest childhood she had shown an independent disposition In these times she would be a suffragette for she believed not only in women having a voice in the government but In their governing Scarcely had she been proclaimed when she startled her people by calling for the resignation of the cabinet and filling the places made vacant with women The queen filled other offices with women and the men were standing about holding their hands Then a fat political job being given to awo man the men thought it time to bestir themselves They sent the most ac complished handsomest and most seductive men to the queen on one pre text or another hoping through her heart to attain their ends But the queen saw through their designs and laughed at them One day a knot of politicians hungry for plunder were discussing the situation when a little half deformed home ly man said to them If you will back me up I will go to the queen and accomplish those things you desire AIl I want is a suit of fine clothes offei1ThenNot long after this the queen re ceived a message that a special ambassador from a neighboring sovereign had arrived with a view to making a treaty Margaret expected tp see a man of imposing appearance and being somewhat timorous of such men steeled herself to meet him She was sur pried tQ see a man barely five feet three inches high with long arms and legs and a slight curve in his back Nevertheless his head was large and he possessed one feature of remarka ble beauty and intelligencehis eye Margaret unbent to this insignificant creature at once assigned him a wing of the palace and as soon as he was readyhe seemed in no hurry began to talk over the terms of the treaty Whenever ihe queen made a demand for a slice of territory a payment of indemnity or any such matter the am bassador would say in a soft voice Your majestys modesty in your demands is what is to be expected from a woman of such loveliness I shall advise my sovereign to double the amount you claim There was no difficulty in making a treaty on such terms and the queen closed the negotiations delighted with the envoy Then the treaty was sent to the other sovereign interested for confirmation and the ambassador obliged to wait for an answer returned to his apartments That night the queen heard a voice singing in the ambassadors wing ac companied by a guitar It seemed to her that it was the voice of an angel She listened till the song had ended and not hearing more sent a request for the singer to resume He did so and Margaret went to bed filled with the most entrancing thoughts The next day on inquiry she learned that the singer was the ambassador She asked him to sing to her but he excused himself saying that the spirit of music came to him only in accord ance with its own sweet will It came however on balmy nights from a pleas ant distance and sounded especially sweet when the moon cast its soft light over the palace and the grounds in which it stood Queen Margaret always listened to it sitting at her bed room window and continued under its spell long after it had ceased Gradu ally the singer and the song became one Of the homely body nothing re mained but froih the ambassadors eyes the queen saw a spiritual body of transcendent beauty a soul that seemed to beckon her to a higher holier existence Meanwhile during theday there be ing no treaty to talk about the queen began to speak to the ambassador nbout her affairs Never had she heard such wisdom such farsighted suggestions He told her that such a queen as she would be a blessing to every people but in all kingdoms there wa low grade work that only coarse na tured men could properly perform The treaty never came bade and the ambassador at last confessed that he was no envoy but one who haviili seen his queen from a distance so worshiped her that he had been irur polled to do a dishonorable act for th sake pf passing a few weeks in her adorable companionship One morning the journals announced that all the ministers had resigned and their places were to be filled with men Then the people waited for an announcement pf the names of the members of the new cabinet When ithe name of the prime minister war published jio one knew him At the first meeting of the cabinet a crowd surrounded the palace very one ann ious to get a view ofliim One by one the ministers passed out till they had lau left tile palace except the man they most wished to see Finally the crowd dispersed and left only a few loiterers Son the sidewalk Then a side door oJepedtanda man with a body like n tpairQf

pieplant hardly ever find ground too rich In fertilizing the orchard re member that the feeding roots extend far out from the trees Dont let the apples put ina pit come in contact with the ground It will make them al most uneatable An apple will stand several more degrees of cold than will the potato and should be kept in a dark cool place If it be possible plan to have the garden in lang rows next summer so that it can be partly tended by the horse cultivator Like animals each fruit tree has its own characteristics and must be handled accordingly They can not all be treated alike Use nothing but wellrotted manure on the garden and the richer the better See that the chunks are all broken up and evenly spread There is no danger of over stocking the market with small fruits and there is little competi tion for tne man who grows the best In applying fertilizers to the orchard spread them evenly over all the ground Roots of mature trees extend over all the areaGive fruit trees plenty of light air room and root feeding area There is more danger of setting trees too close together than too for apart f Why go to the expense of set ting out an orchardand the neg lect jt That looks like land time and money wasted Ah or chard worth setting out is worth caring for right- Remember riot to put beets turnipsandsuchvegetables away in the cellar without first packing in moist dirt Sand is the cleanest and easiest to han die If Il packed they wilt If you havent yet plowed the garden try and find some day this winter in which to do the job It will mean vegetables at least ten days earlier next spring shbuld it happen to prove wet As soon as freezing weathers in cover the strawberry patch with straw to prevent al ternate freezing and thawing of the soil and consequent Jifjting of the plants Manure with the straw is good Bear in mind that peachstones nuts cherry and plumpits etc front which it is hopedto obtain tree seedings should be mixed With ilQr slid and exposed to jK S rV iV 2Ls i t i t bli freezing otherwise the shelL is not cracked Anticipate winter heaving of fruit trees due to freezing and thawing of the ground by plac ing around the tree a few forks i fuls of manure and litter This will prevent the heaving and become a valuable fertilizer for the the future Remove the mulch in the spring Clover is one of the best or chard crops Seed is cheap this year If your orchard soil is not adapted to red clover try alsike It vill grow where redclover will not The seed is more expensive but it will go twice as far making the cost of eed ing of a definite area with alsike as cheap as with red clover Dont Get A Divorce A western judge granted a divorce on i account of illtemper and bad breath Dr Kings New Life Pills would have prevented it

one of the dates in Ameri can history with which every schoolboy should be familiar On that day in Boston the cradle of fJlberty and the nursery of poets was born Edgar Allan Poe who is ranked by many as the greatest literary gen lus America has yet produced He died in Baltimore Oct 7 1849 Thus his life comprised but a few months over orty years but he attained a literary rank in that short time that entitles him in the opinion of the critics of today to a place perhaps higher than Ith t of any of his contemporaries or successors in the literature of the new fworld It is chiefly as a poet that he Is known Yet his prose wprks bear the marks of undoubted genius In Mils life he was unfortunate and un happy His death occurred under cir f cumstances which left a cloud upon his memory But ills works have given him imperishable fame The general commemoration of the 3ob centenary throughput the country indicates a desire to do him all possi i ble honor Boston New York Phila ddeiphia

Points where he was once a cadet it is pro posed also to erect a memorial al though in his days as a student there Poe did not get much honor His de fiance of discipline led to his expulsion I Poes parents were connected with I the stage and were filling an eugage ment at a Boston theater when he was r born but they both died before he J was three years old and he was adopt ed by a Scotchman named John Allan 1j who resided in BichnondVa Hence j the association of the poet in his early years with the south Allan gave him j the benefit of European travel and l v was perhaps too indulgent to his fos ler son a fact in part responsible for y J the unfortunate habits Poe later ac t quirecL In after years there was estrangement between Poe and his i foster father and when the latter died 0 he did not leave him his fortune Poe struggled with poverty during all his i j y life as a literary worker and some of the most famous of his writings fi brought him but a few paltry dollars The Raven

complete the contract if she gave way before his prodding it would Indicate that she had not the equanimity1 iiecessary to bear the greater irritating trials of married life and he wquld break the engagementNow a bit of an experimenter myself that is when I can experiment on others The failures of my acquaint ances do not distress me nearly so much as my owen Ben and I were bosom friends Lucy Benedict his fiancee was my own cousin Ben con fided to me that he was about to ap ply hiss test to Lucy It occurred to me that here was a fine chance for an exhibition of two people applying the same test to each other I went to Lucy and told her that the only fear I had for her happiness with Bv was his temper and advised her before marrying him to make sure I was mistaken She said she would In nine cases out of ten this story would be a description of a thunder storm It would have been so in this case had not Lucy been a girl of re markable self control It was natural for her to bend gracefully before the squalls of life and she had the fort tude to stand up under the cyclone The first test Ben applied was this He invited her to drive with him at 5 in the afternoon and came at 6 giving no excuse for keeping her waiting Lucy made no comment on his rude ness She prattled about the exquisite afternoon the beauty of his horses getting in some very nice things for himself Ben was much pleased with the way she bore his first test but said to himself that one swallQw doesnt make a summer He would try her another day The next evening when he called Lucy told him that she had some let ters to write and he must excuse her from spending the evening with him Ben was disappointed He thought the letter writing might be put off But Lucy did not offer to do so Indeed she made things worse She told him that her bosom friend a girl of her own age was to arrive at 320 the next morning and would he mind meeting her at the station What could he do Just engaged and all his proffers of a lifelong devotion still warm he con sented The hour was not a conven lent one either tQ get sleep before or after the duty ttf be performed He rat up till 3 alone after 11 escorted the visitor two
