girls did not need any education But who is there now that does not know that the quickest way to improve a family is to educate the girls t Womens business requires good brains It is a big thing to know how to provide food and clothing Co- family even when the husband and father does his part And it is still a greater thing to know how to bring childrenAnd of the best teachers are young women Girls trained as nurses earn oven more than teachers Every year the number of girls who attend Berea increases Besides the common school studies they all learn much in Music and Manners and Housekeeping Some of them used to come in spite of the fact that they were laughed at and discouraged by their neighbors Many work very hard to help pay their way now But no girlwho ever came to Berea has regretted it while many who missed their chance for an education here have boon forry for it all their lives Girls get to school this Winter Infant mortality is something frightful Nearly

in an almost unbroken succession from Onmba to Denver and from South Dakota through Nebraska Kansas and Oklahoma with Kansas plainly the center of the movement homemade windmills of various de signs are in dally Use Whether of pat terns variously known as jumbos mer rygo round battleax Holland or tur bine mills they are all successful And It Is n strange fact that wherever the homemade mills arc found shop made solid and substantial mills are lso numerous and fntUtactory The jumbo or go devil mill Is much like an old fashloned overshot waterwheel being an overshot windmill Sim WATERING BY WINU lOWEll pie In design almost any material may be used In Its construction such as old lumber lath shingles split mils old packing boxes barrels staves coffee sacks and even tin from tin roofs Jumbo mills can be used to pump wa ter for the house for stock or for irri gation of small patches of orchard or garden Jumbos have been made large enough to Irrigate ten acrctof orchard If the best use is made of the jumbo the results are not to bt despised They must be set to catch the prevailing winds Which in western Kansas are north and south Where there are but four farms it often happens the wings are in such a position as they revolve that but a single fan is struck by the wind at a time whereas in the case of six or eight fans two three or four may catch the wind at a time thus giving the mill just that much additional strength The cut shows the sixfan jumbo mill on the farm of WW Goodrich of Bethany Neb used for watering a sixacre egg plant patch The Ions are each 0 feet long with arms bye feet The jumbo box it 0x11x6 feet high with doors below for escape of dead nlr With a Damascus steel axis such a mill cost about eight dollars with a gas pipe axis one can be but

true that much attention has been given the subject and under the present road laws wherever there is a good road overseer who enforces the law we have fair roads there is n lack of systematic drainage and thorough work At a recent convention In this county the trustees clerks and treasurers of town ships county commissioners and a com mittee from the League of American Wheelmen met and discussed the subject of good roads at length The sug gestion was made of a state conception to secure uniform action all over the state At such a convention It was stated that the manufacturers of fur proved roadmaldng machinerywould be present to show what could be done We believe Kansas is ready to take this subject up A state convention would result in bringing together an enthusiastic body of men who would cooperate in securing legislation and adopting the most intelligent methods for better roads The value of this movement cannot be overestimated to the farmers of Kansas Topeka Cap ital Bluegrass Seeding for Lawns The plat intended for the lawn should be very finely pulverized for the reception of the seed which should be sown early In the spring either broad cast or with eeeder at the rate of about three bushels per acre The old fash ioned Kentucky bluegrass Is the best for the purpose mentioned It makes a good firm sod and is particularly well suited for turfing the elopes of em bankments and terraces where time soil is good Of course this grass is not so well adapted for hay as for pasture No grass will do well where the shade Is too heavy but Kentucky bluegrass will do as well as any we know of and kept cut pretty short it will thrive in light shade Farmers Voice Ilglttnlnfr Und Mlle In Length Bavaria has n most curious claim to notoriety which Is that It

point of laying lit eggs Nothing could have been mor grateful to the hungry company Our presence did not disturb tin turtle Four men lifted It up front the ground but It evinced no other sign of restlessness than pulling and blowing and the moment It was put down again It began throwing up earth with its flulike hind feet One of our soldiers laid himself on the ground beside the turtle put his hard in tha hole which It had excavated and threw out the eggs as fast as the animal laid them About a hundred here collected in this way in ten minutes This turtle usually lays front ten to twelve dozen eggs Turtles often crawl up froth the sea and travel a distance of tram boo to 000 feet on the shore to deposit their eggs Tunghuhu found hundreds of turtle skeletons on the coast of lava many of them five feet long and three feet broad Some of them were bleached but others were still fresh and bleeding In the air multitudes of birds of prey were circling This Is the spot where the poor tic tles aro attacked by the wild dogs These savage animals in packs of or more attack every available spot of their luckless victim they bite IU head paws and tall and manage to turn It over They then tear up tho stomach shell and feast on the flesh and eggs Sometimes the turtle escapes null reaches the sea dragging tho tugging dogs after It Sometimes too the tiger regales himself on ChI

WINTHROP Ailttr l dl Dun EJwIi BrrtWrWI etc CHAPTER I A GOLD MINE This is a story not about myself I but about three friends of mine a man who was a rent hero a lady well my readers shall judge of her and a horse A few years ago I was working a gold quartz mine in California- It was a worthless mine under the conditions of that ulna I had been drugged into it by the shifts and needs of California life Destiny probably meant to teach me patience and selfposession in difficulty So Destiny thrust mo into a bitter bad business of Quartz Mining- If I had had countless dollars of capital to work my mine or quick silver for amalgamation as near and plenty as the snow on the Sierra Ne vada I might have done well enough As it was I got but certain penny worths of gold to a most intolerable quantity of quartz Yes my quartz had humbugged mo Or ratherlet me not bo unjust even to undefended stone not enough to pay an advocate I richI humbugged myself with false experiencehave had false hopes of other things than quartz mines Perhaps it was to teach mo this that the experience came Having had my lesson I am properly cool and patient now when I see other people suffering in the same waywhether they dig for gold fame or bliss digging for to bread of their life and getting only a stone The quartz was honest enough as quartz It was my own fault that I looked for gold bearuig quartz and so found it bogus andIdelusion What right have u o maud the noble from the ignobleI Steady disappointment informs a man that ho is in the wrong place All work no play no pay is a hint to work else where But then must dig in the wrong spots to learn whero they are and so narrow- into the right spot at lastIA word or two of my companions A hard lot they were my neigh- bOr within twenty miles Jailbirds some of them of the worst kind It was well perhaps that my digging did uot make money and theirs did They would not have scrupled to bag my gold and butcher me But they were not all ruffians some were only barbarians Pikes most of these latter Amer ica is manufacturing several new types of men Tho Pike is one of the newest He is the bastard pio neer With one hand he clutches the pioneer vices with the other ho beckons forward the vices of civilization It is hard to understand how a man can have so little virtue in so long a body unless the shakes are foes to virtue in tho soul as they are to beauty in tho face Ho is a terrible shock this un lucky Pike to the hope that the new race on the continent is to be a haul some race I lose that faith which the people about me now have nourished when I recall tho Piko Ho is hung together not put together He inserts his lank fathom of a man into a suit of molasses colored homespun Frowsy and husky is tho hair Nature crowns him with frowsy and stubby the beard He shambles in his walk Ho drawls in his talk Ho drinks whiskey by the tank His oaths are constant I went on toiling day after day weekafter week two good years of my life over that miserable mine Nothing came of it I was growing poorer with ever ton we dug poorer with every pound we crushed In u few months more I should have spent my last dollar and have gone to day labor perhaps among the Pikes I saw of course that somethingmust be done What I did not know I was in that state when one needs an influence without himself to take him by the hand gently by the shoulder forcibly by the hair roughly or even by the nose insultingly and drag him off into u now region The influence came Bad news reached me My only sister a widow my only neat relative died leaving two children to my care It was strange how this sorrow made the annoyance and weariness of my life naughtl How this responsibility cheered mel My life seemed no longer lonely and purposeless Point was given to all my intentions at once I must return home to New York Further plans when I am therel But now for home If anyone wanted my quartz mine he might have it I could not pack it in my saddlebags to present to a college cabinet of mineralogy I determined as time did not absolutely press to ride home across the plains It is grand journey Two thousand miles or so on horseback Mountains deserts prairies rivers Mormons Indians buffalo adventures without number in pros pect A hearty campaign and np carpet knighthood about it It was late August I began my preparations at once CHAPTER II OERRIAN RANCU It happened that on a journey early in the same summer sore twenty miles from my mine I hat como upon a band of horses feeding on the prairie They cantered off as I went riding down tho yellow slope and then halting just out of lasso reach stopped to viow me Animals are always eager to observe man Perhaps they want ideas against tho time of their promotion to humanity so that they need net bo awkward and introduce quadruped habits into bipedcircles The muss of tho herd inspected inn stupidly enough Man to them wits power and nothing elsea lasso throwing machine something that put cruel bits into equine mouths got on equine backs and forced epuiue legs to gallop until they were stiff Mau was therefore something to admire but to avoidso these horses seemed to think and if they had known man as brother man alone knows him perhaps their op pinion would have been confirmed One horse however among them had more courage or more curiosity or more faith Ho withdrew from tho crowdtho haughty aristocrat and approached me circling about as if he felt himself a higher being than hisimustaugcomradesuearer to man and willing to offer him his friend ship Ho and I divided the attention of the herd Ho seemed to be not their leader but rather one who lpsIHothe herd to care for their unexciting society I slipped quietly down from my little Mexican cabalio and tethering him to a bush witha lariat stood watching the splendid motions of this free steed of the prairie He was an American horseso they distinguish in Callifornia one brought from the old Statesa superb youngstallion perfectly black without mark It was mag rificeut to see him as ho circled about me fire in his eyes pride in his nostrils tail flying like a banner power and grace from tip to tip No one would ever mount him or ride him unless it was his royal pleasure He was conscious of his representative position andshowed his paces handsomely It is tho business of all beautiful things to exhibitImagine the scene A little hol low in the prairie forming a perfect amphitheater the jellow grass and wild oats grazed short a herd of horses staring from the slope my self htanding in the middle liko the ring master in a circus and this wonderful horse performing at his own free will He trotted powerfully he galloped gracefully he thund ered at full speed he lifted his fore legs to welcome he flung out his hind legs to repel he ldpedas if ha was springing over bayonets ho pranced and as wore the pretty plaything of n girl finally when he had amused himself and delighted me sufficiently he trotted up und snuffed about me just out of reachA knows a friend by instinct So does a man But a man vain creature is wilting to repel instinct and trust intellect andso suffers from the attempt to revise his first impressions which if he is healthy- are infalliblo The black instinctively knowing me for a friend came forward and made the best speech he could of welcomea and no more Then feeling a disappointment that his compliment could not be more melodiously or gracefully nearer and not without- shying and starts of which I tookno notice at last licking my hand put his head upon my shoulder suffered me to put my arm around his neck and in fact lavished upon mo every mark of confidence We were grow ing fast friendsLwhen I heard a sound of black tore awaywith a snort and galloped off with the herd after him A Mexican vaquero dashed down the slope in pursuit I hailed him A quien es ese cabalio el negrito t Aquel diablol es del Senor Oor rian And he sped on I know Gerriun He was a Pike of the better class He had found his way early to California bought a mission farm and established him self as a ranchero His herds droves and flocks darkened the hills Tho name reminded me of tho giant Geryon of old Were Ian unscrup ulous Hercules free to and name it protection I would certainly drive ofT Gerriaua herds for the sake of that black horse So I thought as I watched them gallop away TO BE

man does good work when his success is assured It is when ho is struggling with the world when all men revile him and persecute him when he is still utterly rejected that ie is the strongest It is

is he sure to fight well If he achieves success the onlyway by which he can escape from its fatal influence is to work for generations beyond the present and so retain the doubt whether it is achieved
