E.Town News, America's Position. The position of the United States relative to the general war in Europe must be one of strict neutrality. Any other position would quickly involve it in hostilities. Yet to maintain strict neutrality the United States must restrain its people in the very opportunities which the war opens to them. The United States must prevent American citizens .from endeavoring to , i beekeeping and fruit growing are practicable when carried on together.

If continued damp weather prevails during the pol len and causing the setting of the fruit. The bees need pollen to feed the youog in the hive, and they are especially active in that season in obtaining it. They are useful, too, in cross fertilizing such varieties as are sterile unless crossed.

Carrots, sweet potatoes, beets, turnips, parsnips, cabbage, salsify and celery keep well stored by this method. Vegetables less perfect in form, less firm in texture should be reserved for immediate use. These may be stord in barrels or boxes with latticed bottoms. Sweet potatoes should be well dried, wrapped in paper, packed in sand aa Indicated, and kept In coolest part of store room. Celery should be taken from ground on a clear day. transferred to boxes of clean, dry sand. The tops and leaf portions should not be rovon-d- . but the bleached part should be well packed in the sand and placed in the coolest part of the stor age room. Cabbage and cauliflower will keep for a long time if gathered and stored with the bead and roots intact. The large outside leaves should be removed. Each head should be surrounded with clean, dry straw and placed downward a few inches apart Pack and store the same as celery. If desired parsnips may be allowed to remain in the ground all winter They should be covered In the fall with clean straw. After the early spring thaw they may be removed, washed and stored in a cool place. Parsley and watercress may be transported to flowerpots or boxe and kept in good growing condition throughout the winter. Tomatoes may be stored very late in the fall if the entire vine is carefully pulled up and hung over rack in the coolest part of the frostproof room, or the fruit may be picked from the vines and placed on racks several inches apart By these methods a large portion of the green tomatoes will ripen and keep indefinitely. If a frost proof storage place is not available, the trench method Is satisfactory for storing cabbage, turnips, carrots, parsnips, salsify, beets, etc. A well drained location should be selected and the trench should be about ven feet deep Clean straw should je filled in to the depth of about one foot. The trench may be divided In sections for each variety of vegetables. The cabbage should be arranged as previously mentioned. In filling the trench the earth should be firmly packed and well heaped. Two boards nailed together lengthwise to form a sloping roof should be placed over thfc top to shed rain and snow. Vegetables stored In a trench may freeze in a severe winter and remain frozen until the spring thaw. The gradual extraction of the frost leaves the vegetables uninjured, but a sudden thaw will greatly impair the texture and flavor. The cost of vegetables grown out of season in greenhouses and available In all markets during the winter and early spring is so high as almost to prohibit their use by people of mod erate means, except as a luxury Therefore If more attention were paid n each home to the storage of a generous supply of winter vegetables the dally meals would be more easily plan sed. the daily diet be made more wholesome and one of the problems In the high cost of food supply would be practically overcome.

I knew very well what that punishment would be. 1 would be sent to Siberia, to work in the mines. In Russia there is no law governing such cases, the emperor being an autocrat, with power over life and death. I entered upon my duties with no .great fear in this respect, for, having been devoted to study, the softer sex had not interested me. I should not have been so confident bad I known that one not given to appreciate girls In general is the most liable to succumb when thrown In with one especial girl. I was thrown in with several princesses between fourteen and twenty. I suppose they knew as well "as I the danger of falling Into an with a commoner. At any rate, they all behaved themselves with circumspection, save one girl of seventeen, between whom and me the spark of love flashed at our first meeting. The Grand Duchess Olga was a daughter of a brother of the czar, consequently his niece. She came frequently to the palace and sometimes remained there for days at a time. After my coming these visits occurred oftener. and lasted longer. For socse time there was nothing spoken between us that might not have been listened to by any one, but even during this time the Grand Duchess Ola and I knew that we loved each othef. One day she asked me to construe for her an ode of Horace. Standing side by side, holding the same book. I felt her hand touch mine. So much vitality was there in this touch of love that all the ice in Siberia could not freeze it. I was unable to withdraw my hand, and so was the grand duchess. That was the beginning. Not a word was spoken. There was not even then e glance between us. As for me, I dared not look at her. We were not alone and could be observed by others, but no one could see that touch beneath the cover of the open book or know of the strong current that passed between us. As soon as I had Etammered through the reading of the passage and I bad no further excuse to remain in thst position I turned the book over to her. It was only when I went to bed that night that I realized the frightful abyss on which I stood. What should I do? I could not fly from my charmer. To leave the czar's service without being dismissed would be revolt To remain would be to leave a hopeless love for the mines. I slept little that night, but when morning came made resolutions for the future which 1 considered a solution of the problem. But It was not three days before one of the little princes, agetl eight finding the Grand Duchess Olga and myself in the same room together, for sport locked us in. This came upon. me too suddenly for resolution. "One kiss." I said "the first and the last" ' I put my arms about her, drew her to me and kissed her, she looking on the floor, frightened, but not resisting. Then I darted to the door and rapped loudly. An attendant unlocked it, and it so happened that when we left the room the czarina passed by. She looked searchingly at us. The grand duchess complained of the little prince, who had locked us in. and his mother reproved him. Then, with a few kind words to the grand duchess and myself that assured us we were not in the least to blame, her majesty pass--eaf-la- ir d making both ironclad ships and cannon and were wearing cotton wadding for armor and fighting with bows ancL'arrows.
