Select a number of small fruit baskets, all the same size, and have a box of checkers handy. Suppose you have On the bottom of one five baskets. mark 20, on another 13, on two o, auu on the other 0. Place the baskets in a row on the floor. Choose sides, giving the black checkers to the leader on one side and the red ones to the other. One side lines up about ten feet away from the baskets, the leader giving each player a checker. If there are any left he keeps them and has the right to throw them after the others have all thrown. Each one in turn throws his checkei into any basket, trusting to luck that it falls into a basket with a number on it. When all have played the leader turns up each basket to see its number and counts the number of checkers in it. If there are two in basket No. 20 it counts forty, if three in a No. o basket it counts fifteen. Any number hi basket 0 count nothing. Then the score on that side is added up, and the number of checkers that fell outside the baskets is deduced from the total. The other side then lines up and plays as the first did. The order of the baskets must be changed occasionally so that no one knows tuich is which. The game continues mil a certain number oOO or 500. as previously agreed upon has been reached. The side scoring that number of points first is victorious.

When John Drew was much younger than he is now he took a small part in "Much Ado About Nothing" when that comedy was being performed by his mother, nor did he believe that .is performance of his role left much to be desired until he uttered the line, "A gentleman should act better than I," whereupon he overheard his mother remark in an undertone, "I should say so." Easier to Remember. The Rev. Henry Ward Beecher had a rather defective memory at times. When he was making the announcements for the coming week one Sunday he wanted to intimate that he would not be the preacher on the following Sunday and that the pulpit would be occupied by his the Rev. Samuel Scoville, but at the last momeut his memory went astray. "In addition to the notices just read," he announced, "I desire to say that I shall not be preaching here nest bath, and the pulpit will be occupied by by the pulpit will be occupied by by by by" After he had stammered for a few seconds he tried again. "I shall not be here next Sabbath, and the preacher will be will be be" Here he broke off with a touch of exasperation: "Why. I know him quite well. You all know him. He married my daughter. Oh, I remember!" And he proceeded gravely. "Sam will preach here son-in-la- i next Sabbath." Sarcastic Stanley! The antipathy which Dr. Johnson bore to Scotland was not singular or unprecedented. Lord Stanley came plainly dressed to request a private audience with King James I. A gayly dressed Scotsman refused him admittance into the king's room. The king, hearing an altercation between the two, came out and inquired the cause. "My liege," said Lord ' anley. "this gay countryman of your has. refused me admittance to your presence." "Cousin," said the king, "how shall I punish him? Shall I send him to the Tower?" "Oh, no, my liege." replied Lord Stanley; "inflict a severer punishment Send him back to Scotland." ' One morning John Atwood. merchant, received from his daughter, who was at the time in Paris, a letter asking him to send all the photographs of her mother, some years dead, to her since she had found an artist who could paint a portrait from them giving the desired lifelike expression. Miss Atwood furthermore suggested that he come over and attend to the matter himself. The artist she referred to was a rising man in his profession and would probably require a good price for doing the work. Mr. Atwood. gathering the pictures in his possession, sailed for Europe and one day turned up in Paris. He was at once taken to the studio of Clarence Whiting, the artist, who was to paint the portrait. Mr. Whiting looked over the photographs carefully, asked which was regarded as the best likeness of the original and remarked: "We portrait painters see resemblances more readily than other persons. To me Miss Atwood is very like her mother. But I cannot tell whether the varied expressions of her face are like her mother's, for a photograph has but one expression, and that is apt to be unlike anything ever found on the face of the original. Unfortunately I have never seen Mrs. Atwood. I will undertake to paint the portrait from the photograph you like best, enlivening it with Miss Atwood's most pleasing expressions. In other words, I will make up the portrait from both mother and daughter. I admit that I am much more likely to fail than succeed, but if I succeed the result will be gratifying to you as well as to me." Mr. Atwood was favorably impressed with this and asked the sum that would be charged for the work when flnished. Mr. Whiting replied that, since he would be unable himself to judge of his work, he would make no price until he learned if the father and daughter pronounced it a Success The matter being disposed of, the art 1st took the photograph of his subject most approved of by the others, and it was arranged that Miss Atwood should give him regular sittings. Miss Atwood at any sudden an nouncement that surprised, interested or pleased her had a way of throwing back her head and looking fixedly at the person making the announcement. This is a very lame description of it but an expression is indescribable. Mr. Whiting looked for it in the fathes and. not finding it. concluded theiv weie many chances in favor of its hav ing been inherited from the mother He determined to paint the portrait, giving the life period of Mrs. Atwood about the time she died and the expression referred to. Mr. Whiting worked a long while be fore he produced what pleased him. making drawings innumerable before beginning to paint Miss Atwood rarely assumed what he was trying to catch and put on the canvas, and this materially caused delay. At any rate, the painting of the portrait seemed to require a very long time. Mr. Atwood. whose presence was required in America, became impatient. At last a satisfactory drawing was made, and after that the work was comparatively easy. More time was spent in smoothing and softening the lines, but Mr. Atwood was assured that a time could be set for the finishing. He was not permitted to see the pic ture while it was being painted, and it was not till it was framed and set up in a proper light that he was admitted to the studio, where It rested on an easel. Whiting and Miss Atwood both watched for the expression on his face when he should see it. knowing that success or failure would ue expressed there. The result was success beyond their expectations. The widower's face lighted up with an expression never seen there since his life's death, und he involuntarily put Mit bis arms as if to clasp her. a living HOTBEDS.

The Sunken Type Best For Raising Early Plants From Seed. Of the several types of hotbeds in general use the sunken or pit type is, all things considered, the best for the raising of early plants from seed. This style of bed is constructed by excavating a pit six feet wide and two and one-hafeet deep and as long as necessary to accommodate the number of 3 by G foot sash it is desired to use. The sides of the pit are boarded up with rough lumber nailed to posts which may be placed three feet or more apart. If some degree of permanency is desired good material will need to be used. Chestnut lumber is very serviceable and reasonably cheap; spruce comes next in point of durability and cheapness. The sides of the pit should be raised above the surface of the ground twenty inches at the back and twelve inches in front. This will provide ample pitch to the sash for shedding rain and also be of sufficient angle for good construction of t&e sun's rays and heat Good sash should be used. The location of the hotbed should be chosen where the natural drainage is good and. if possible, where there Is a The Huntsman. good windbreak at the north side.

Money Saved is Money Made, Lets prove to you the maxim of this adage. to use tankage. I find it beneficial and in a large degree profitable where hogs Ltes J5r 51 Swope In, tte American Agriculturist. There isn't anything about good tankage or meat meal that is in any way injurious to hogs, whether young or old. Good takage contains over 50 per cent protein, and for that reason it answers an important question in animal economy. It is a good feed to use with corn and highly palatable. It need not be fed In large quantities, and. especially when beginning to feed tankage, one part tankage to about ten parts of corn Is a very satisfactory ration. Tankage is animal matter from which the grease and oil have been extracted. This consists of meat scraps and bone from meat markets and packing houses picked up fresh in a large tank and thoroughly cooked at a high temperature. The grease is removed from the surface and tankage is then dried thoroughly, after which it is ground, screened and placed in bags for shipment. The high temperature employed in cooking destroys all disease germs that might be present Tankage, therefore, all summed up is a pure, safe feed for hogs. It contains 8 to 10 per cent moisture, and in a good, dry place it can be kept for an indefinite period of time. I xhave fed tankage to bogs of all ages for several years now and with excellent results in every case. With the high cost of feed a little tankage fed with the regular ration to the hogs each day will be found a good feed investment. The cost of feeding tankage seems to increase a trifle every year, but I am sure it will pay all who can use it to do so as long as the price is as reasonable as it is today, considering its protein contents compared with other feeds. Tankage may be fed dry, either alone or with grain rations. I have found it very satisfactory in a thin slop. One station says that a ration made up of one paii tankage and six or eight parts 'cm has proved to be th; most satisfa 't:?ry. and a greater gait per 100 pounds was secured in this manner of feeding.

Now, I'm going to tell you how he came to carry out what was but although Looking to hlsHght, he saw the deep red of a brick chimney against brown limbs of trees. He knew that where there was a chimney there must be a house and started to go and make an investigation. He came upon a very pretty cottage, with a broad piazza around it. a Queen Anne roof and dainty windows. "And I'm jinged if I don't build, a match to that," he added to his first assertion. There was not a living thing in or near the cottage, and It was evident that It was Intended only for summer use. Mr. Dix went up on the piazza and looked into the living room through a window. The apartment contained cottage furniture, but the chief attraction was a large fireplace. "I've a good mind to sleep there tonight," he said to himself and tried the window to see if it were securely lock ed. It was, but Mr. Dix hunted for a place of ingress as energetically as he had hunted for game and found one by getting on the piazza roof a window not well secured. Going downstairs, he opened a door from the inside, admitting him to the wood bouse, and in a few minutes had a fire blazing on the hearth. Then he settled himself down In an easy chair before It, and, looking at his reflection in a mirror on the mantel opposite him, he remarked: "Your comfort is only equaled by your assurance." And straightway he fell asleep. Now. It happened that this was Halloween, and a party of girls were coming to spend it at this very cottage. Flora Stebblns, a daughter of the owner, was the hostess, and the others were her guests. Mr. Dix went to sleep about dark, which comes earl? at the last of October, and the youn? ladies arrived about 8 o'clock. "My goodness gracious!" exclaimed Miss Stebblns. "There's some kind of a light Inside. It looks as If there were a fire on the hearth. Wait a minute till I reconnoiter." She went to a window and saw the slumbering Mr. Dix sitting before a fire that was still blazing merrily. She beckoned to the others.

Mr. Dix had a job of hunting on his hands far different from following up fame. He was a methodical chap and began by learning to whom the cottage belonged.

I Mrf e J -- ! , , MacElligott returned from his vacation, and when he entered his bachelor home a single room, which was all he needed it seemed lonelier to him than ever In a country hotel with women and children about him he had had an advantage. None of them belonged to him. but neither he nor they had anything to do all day long, and he could see as much of them as he liked. But now he was back again to the same desolation. "I've a mind to take a house," he said "a small house, but a whole house. I'll have room to ask friends to come and stay with me. I can walk about in the rooms." So the next day he went houwe hunting. After visiting a number he came upon a cozy place just about big enough for him. But somehow his enthusiasm for housekeeping had been replaced by common sense. "No one can make a home without a woman in it," he muttered to himself. "My friends won't come to keep me company, and I wouldn't want them any way." While he spoke he pushed the button at the front door. A moment before it was opened a young woman of prepossessing appearance came up the steps An elderly woman appeared at the door, and MacElligott drew back. The lady who had just appeared said: "I understand that this house is to let furnished. Can I see it?" "Certainly." Supposing the two bad come together to look at the house, the keeper of it led the way into the living room, a dainty little apartment, neatly furnished, and from there through the rooms on the first floor. On reaching the second floor she threw open the door of the best bedroom, remarking, "Any couple who couldn't be happy in thic room couldn't be happy at all." MacElligott and the lady both looked very sober at this, for the keeper said It as if having mistaken them for a married couple.

Concerning Fire. There are different kinds of fire. Have you ever wondered why the flame of the kitchen stove is blue, why the open gas jet and the incandescent electric bulb shed yellow light, why the gas mantle shines white and why the electric arc is blue, especially when you see it burning in the daytime? The source of the light is different. The old fashioned gas jet and the incandescent bulb shine because the carbon (or tungsten) in them is more than red hot The difference is that the thin wire of carbon (or something else) In the bulb is heated by electricity and the fine carbon dust of the open flame (it is called soot when it's cold), is heated by the blue flame. The yellow gas flame is not nearly so hot as the blue. That is why you should not turn up the gas too high when you are cooking things on the kitcheiTrange. The gas mantle is white because the fabric is heated to a great degree by a blue flame Inside, much like that of the kitchen stove, and very hot. The electric arc shines with the light from intensely hot carbon, but mostly from the oxygen of the air, which is raised to a white heat by the passage of electricity between the two carbons.

When I reached middle life a legacy enabled me to go abroad with the view to try to make a painter of myself. I realized that I was beginning too late in life to hope for much success. One should learn to handle a brush when the muscles are young and flexible. I studied awhile in Paris, but my fears were realized In my conceptions I felt every confidence, but when I attempted to put them on canvas I failed. I determined to return home by way of Italy, where I proposed to regale myself among the works of art I would find there. Having spent some time in Florence and Rome, I went on down to Naples, where I intended to take passae for America. I found here in the most beautiful bay in the world a temptation to make one more trial with my brush. While I was at work I fell ill. My room was with a widow In a house that overlooked the bay. During my sickness I would get out of bed and, seating myself in an easy chair, wrapped in rugs, sit gazing out through an open window upon the scene before me. What is especially fixed In my mind Is the varying views which seemed to be passing before me like a panorama. At one time the water In the bay would be a deep, then a light green. Again it would be a deep or a pale blue. There were times when there were streaks of silver in it. At one time the Island of Ischia. to the northward, was bathed in purple; then Capri, directly before under the Influence of the setting sun. would be tinged with scarlet hues. My landlady had a son, Emilio. about fourteen years old. In whom I was interested, because he showed a considerable inherent artistic taste. His conceptions were of little or no value, but his ability to execute them was considerable. "Ah, my boy," I said to him. "if I could return to your age and devote myself to art I could put the beautiful things I am capable of seeing on canvas for the admiration of the world. These pictures the bay affords are commonplace to you. If they were to you what they are to me you would be esteemed a great painter." While hi made no reply to this. I noticed that it made a great impression upon him. I said it before I was taken ill, and afterward, when I was suffering, he came in often to see me. not to talk, but merely to be with me. I remember especially his doing this when I sat in my easy chair before the window absorbing the different views the bay afforded me. As soon as I recovered 1 sailed for America and did not revisit Italy for eight years. On my return I found in the National gallery in Naples several paintings of the bay of Naples that brought me a strange sensation They represented the bay under different conditions that had impressed me during my illness. As no human face is exactly reproduced in anotner, so none of these views could be exactly duplicated on different days. What especially improved me was that there were five of these views, each one of which I had seen in nature itself. I looked for the name of the artist on the rainting. but it was not there. Accosting one of the gallery officials. I led him to the pictures and asked about the artist. "Those pictures." he said, "were painted by a mere boy. It was supposed that he would become one of the famous artists of the world, but he produced only these work!, which were all executed about the same time." "Why is there no name on them?" "Because the boy who painted them would not consent to put his name there." "Why not?" "I have understood that he had some childish whim that he was not entitled to any credit for their merit." "Do you know his name?" . "Yes. It is Emilio MurelU." "Emilio Murelli?" "Yes. siguor. Why are you so surprised?" "Eight years ago I knew an Emiiio Murelli." I replied when I had collect- - . ed niy faculties, "a boy who had considerable ability to execute, but not the true artistic individuality. He was a worker, not a dreamer. I cannot understand how he could have produced these pictures." The official shrugged his shoulders, as the Italians do when they are stumped, and left me. I tried to find Emilio, who was now a man. and failed. More years have passed since then, during which I have taken a deep interest In those subtle conditions which on rare occasions indicate a mingling of two different souls. 1 have put upon the Incident 1 have related an interpretation of my own, though I confess it is a mere suggestion. I consider it possible that, while my personality was weak and pliable through Illness, there was something in Emilio that enabled him to ilraw from me my appreciation of the beautiful scenes I saw In the bay of Naples, and he was competent in himself to transfer them to the canvas. I believe the day will come when certain laws npon which such Intermingling depends will be known, just asv the electric laws guiding wireless- te? legraphy are known. - t I". -r '1 8 ITHErADAIR C0UNTY1NEWS From Missouri.

To this union there were born two sons and five daughters, six of whom are now living. For many years he was a devoted member of the Tabor Methodist Church taking a great interest in religious work. His whole life was spent on the farm where he,died. He had always had very good health. He worked most every day. The first of his sickness we were going with him to haul in his corn. Just as we got into the held we were watching him drive down to the corn. We saw dear Father fall out of the wagon. No one but God can ever know how our hearts beat with pain. We thought he was almost killed. He said he was not hurt and helped us fill the wagon with corn, but that was the last work he ever done. He would walk about the house and tell us how to feed the stock. Just two weeks from the day he fell out of the wagon, he got worse, in spite of all that his physicians and love ones could do, he was called to his eternal home. He left us with a dear good mother. What a lonesome time we have when we go to the barn to feed night and morning, The wagon and everything about the barn remind us of our father. Every way we go on the farm there is some work he had done. It is hard for us to do without father, but the Lord knew best. , EXPENSES Fee $10.00 Incidental Tuition, Intermediate, per mo.
