i arrnal Hiyttaok and He Can J TeethrnAlmost every trae knows something buildsgvery few people have seen beavers in their wild stale ItJs also a fact that the race of Industrious little workers is rapidly disappearing In the older disx tricts beavers generally live in the banks of the streams they inhabit and the sight of a beaver house is uncom mono f Where beavers do build houses says Forest and Stream the structures differ greatly In size shape and location Some are as large though of courser less high than a small haystack oth ers dire hardly more than six feet through at the base They may stand either wholly on land or partly In the water and partly on the bank or whol ly In the water They are never placed In very deep water for a base must be built for the house to stand on reaching up to the surface since the chamber inhabited by the occupants must be dry The shape of those houses on the shore approaches the conical Those in the water are more Irregular sometimes only rounded at others long and rather flat on top Within each house and connected with the water by a concealed passage through which the beavers pass to and fro is the chamber which is the ani mals dwelling place It is large enough to contain seven or eight of them and high enough so that a beaver can conveniently sit up on his haunches It is warm dry and clean for the beaver Is extremely neat in all his habits The food of the beaver consists chiefly of the green bark of twigs and young limbs of various trees Cotton wood bark Is preferred then comes willow then alder but the bark of almost any tree may be eaten- I have known them to eat pine and white cedar The beaver often cuts r down trees of very considerable size to get at the smaller limbs which they eatII have seen cottonwoods twenty Inches in diameter so cut and once on Vancouver island I found a cedar two and onehalf feet through which they t had gnawed down The work of cutting down a large tree Is done bya single animal I have seen the beaver engaged in the operation which is as follows The beaver sits up on his haunches facing the tree and with its fore paws rest r Ing against it With Its head turned on one side he cuts a groove above and then one below and bites out the chin taking it off in almost the same Way an axman would He thus saves himself the trouble of gnawing all the wood up into fine cuttings When the tree is felled the whole community attack and cut up the tender limbs carrying them away to the cache Unlike many of our gnawing ani mals the beaver does not sleep through the winter He remains active often venturing abroad during the whole of the cold weather He must therefore have food and a large part of the summer and autumn is devoted to se curing this food and depositing it in caches This food consists of the limbs and twigs of the trees most preferred by the beaver They are cut from one and a half three feet long stripped of their leaved and smaller twigs carried to the water and floated to the cache where they are sunk And here comes a very curious point These sticks are floated to the cache and are sunk by the beaver to the bot tom of the water where they remain without any apparentanchorage They are not stuck in the mud of the bottom or held down by weights If you lift one to the surface it will float but you may move It about on the bottom without Its rising Ihave myself tried this with sticks from which the bark has been eaten but have never done so with the green unpeeled limbs before the beavers bad taJ thorn Into their houses This m ttertome is a very mysterious one and I have never been able to get any lCdlvisit these caches earth the sticks to their houses where they eat off the barjk returning the bare sticks to the Wper Sometimes It may happen

rABATOR Be Careful to Keep slt Soruyulously Clean and Sanitary P Probably no one thing connected with da4ryisl of aone importance than keepingtheutenlllJl clean The following rules should be carefully observed A cream separator should be thoroughly washed every time after using AbrnahYshouldbe used on every part arid piece using 5 per cent solution of borax or other good washing powder Rinse in hot watery or steam If possible They should then be left to dry while Jib t Wiping with an or dinary clean cloth contaminates uten sils with innumerable bacteria The bacterial contamination in milk Is increased from three to five times by running it through a separator bowl which has been used and only flushed and left standing several hours If only flushed while using for several days the contamination in creases several times more and such milk would be likely to be detrimental if fed to calves The use of a cream separator that is thoroughly washed reduces the num ber of bacteria in milk onefifth to one fourthImproper cleaningsis detrimental to a separator on account of the rust that accumulates on dirty or damp places This may shorten the life of the machine many months depending on the degree of cleanliness employed Running milk through a dirty separ ator is similar to running it through a dirty strainer with all of the filth of the previous milking left in it from 12 to 24 hours The millions of unde sirable bacteria from the dirt manure and slime lodged in the separator bowl spoil all the milk to a greater or lesser degree that passes through the machine When properly used a cream separator is a clarifier and to a certain extent a purifier but if not kept clean it is a source of filth and con aminationIt important to follow these directions at this season of the year although they are appropriate for all seasons The warmer the weather the more rapidly bacteria develop and therefore the more rapidly milk and cream become damaged It is Impor tant now because it is the farmers busy season and with the press of other work he Is tempted to neglect the important matter of keeping his dairy utensils in perfect order Again the creameries are every year becoming more and more par ticular as to the cream or milk which they purchase The more particular they become the better it is both for the creamery and for the farmer and hence it stands every man in hand to be able to furnish cream or milk of the highest quality which can be done only by taking special care of the utensils and especially of the separator COOLING MILK Keep the Cans hi a Tank Fitted with Cold Water A great deal of the milk brought to the creamery Monday morning at this season of the year is sour caused largely from not being properly cooled Saturday night A tank of cool water to place the cans in as soon as you are through milking is indispensable One of the plungers used to stir the milk with is also necessary This is made by soldering a piece of tin about four inches in diameter onto a small tin pipe about two feet long this will make a plunger which can be easily washed By giving the milk a churn or two the whole mass will be agi tated and thoroughly stirred sending the milk in the center of the can to the outside and that at the outside to the center If milk is clean and the cans strainers palls and other uten sils are properly cleaned and the whole mass of milk is properly cooled down immediately after milking it will keep a long time LOW PLATFORM MILKING STOOL A Style of Device Which Some May Find to Their Liking Make the stool shown in

ALL TASTES fVfust a Touch of HorseRadish Onion Nor Garlic Improves the Dish for Many Red Peppers Make coGood Ornamentation How seldom now one meets with a E plain French dressing this being composed of only oil vinegar pepper and saltjust four ingredients Prop erly proportioned and happily mixed so that it became a blend it was in Its perfection not easy to better But little by little according to the Instincts and tastes and initiative of J the salad mixer additions have come to light that change and often im prove the flavor of the dressing Now there Is the horseradish flavor often lent to the dressing by the use of a little of the liquid or juice Used delicately there is much to commend its presence when cucumbers or lettuce are to be dressed A suspicion of it too in a dressing for tomatoes Is seldom amiss it being next to im possible to use too little of this flavor Ing For a potato salad its use is es pepialiy recommended by certain ones Then of onion flavor in French dressing With most of the lettuces the flavor of onion is often pleasantly combined But many ways exist for I introducing this flavor so that the degree of its presence may be regulated- To rub the salad bowl with a slice of onion is oneway and a very deli cate and pleasing way at that To stir about in the dressing a slice of the onion is another way that a fine taste would approve Then to boldly add the juice of an onion or its grated substance is a method of imparting it that is sure and undeniable and quite liked by those who wish each Item in a sauce salad or dressing the use of garlic and of chives too the onion flavor may be suggested in a French dressing Just a little garlic should be used for those of the finer tastes and of chives a more liberal hand may provide the amount With the exercise of good judgment it is possible to add and With success both horseradish and the onion fla vor to a French dressing Parsley chopped is very often add dressIantly combined too when chopped red or green peppers go into the dressing for its improvement- The purposes of ornamentation too are served by the use of red peppers chopped and chopped parsley And chopped chives with red peppers chopped mingle happily for both eye and palate Now for the variants in the dress ing itself By the use of the differ ent peppers many variations may be accomplished All black pepper for instance and very much of it or black with red or with white or with paprika all make for piquant effects in the French dressing So much is accomplished with vine gars now that it is a pity for the closet not to be well stocked with them Of course there is always the cider vinegar as a standby Then the vinegars made from wines or the malt vinegar or the raspberry or tarragon or chili all do more than well their part when one wants a difference In the salad bowl Instead of vinegar wine may be used Sauterne or claret Is used in this way For most purposes sau terne will be found the most satis factory Sometimes a little sweet wine that is a sherry or madeira may be used in a French dressing composed of oil vinegar salt and pepper Just a few drops of it added and stirred well in to the dressing does much in the im provement line And so it goes Take the sugges tion of others create notions of your own for improving or ornamenting the simple French dressing and find yourself entered in a contest

Growers Another Year Our hereditary enemy the rose chafer or rose beetle has of late been making such bold invasions into the grape territory that any measures which promise even partial success are welcome to the vineyard owners The life history of this awkward creature Is known pretty well by those interested the eggs are laid usually in sod land and In well drained sandy sod by preference just such land as abounds in the fruit belt The larvae are white grubs resembling in minature the grubs of the ordinary white grub of the June beetle Like their larger relatives they feed on the roots of vegetation They attain their full size in the fall and at that time hollow out small cells in the soil where they pass the winter In the spring the larvae change to pupae and later in June the adult beetles with their long awkr ward legs come out and spread over the countryside collecting in regions where their food plants are to be found new legions appearing from day to day as earlier ones die or are killed off sometimes collecting in almost unbelievable numbers Grapes suffer most of all the fruits The beetles seem to come out just in time to feast on the flowers and young sets and a single beetle can ac countfor many bunches of grapes at such a time On Just such an Occasion the writer in company with his assistant Mr E J Kraus visited a vineyard at Decatur a wellknown grape region Here a pan seven feet six inches long 22 inches wide and one inch deep was made from a sheet of galvanized iron To one side of this was fastened a light frame three feet high and run ning the entire length of the frame being securely braced to the frame of the pan The pan was prepared by placing a number of old pieces of cloth soaked in water in the bottom and over this pouring about a quart of kerosene When the pan had been made ready it was placed alongside of a vine and the beetles beaten into it by means of switches made of broom corn After collecting the beetles from one vine the pan was moved along to the next and the beat ing repeated Some of the beetles fell short of the pan some struck the shield and bounded back but most of them stayed in and died It is likely that a deep notch in the side of the pan which would admit of placing the pan closer to the vines would make it possible to catch more of the beetles Of course all the beetles that touched the oil died Quite a large number of beetles were collected in this way but on tile day of the trial the beetles were not so plentiful as the writer has seen them at other times It is likely that when the beetles are not numerous two men with ordinary milk pans with oil rags in the bottom and with switches would do about as well When very numerous the large pan should be efficient It requires hard work to carry such a pan over the hills such as are ordinarily used for grape grow ing Our illustration shows such a pan In use A test of arsenate of lead In heavy doses was also made at the same time A certain portion of the vine yard was sprayed with arsenate us ing four pounds to the barrel of wa ter The ordinary prepared paste was used We started with a well stirred charge but owing to the inefficiency of the agitator the applica tion was far stronger at the part first sprayed than when farther along As to the results of thS spray Mr r E V Hayden in whose vineyard the test was made writes in substance In the north block where the spray was strong the unsprayed rows aver aged a little more than half as much as the average of the two rows that were sprayed The beetles had been at work for a week when the spray was applied No injury to the vines resulted from the strongest of the mixture This looks very encouraging but the grower must always keep in mind that the spraying must be done thor oughly everything must be hit and all parts of the vine washed with the mixture Also use a pump with an agitator which will work when the pump is moving slowlyR PETTIT Entomologist Michigan They WillThe old theory that

Thor ough in Investigation The brother of Willis E Smith the missing State University student Prof A 43 Smith of Hindman Ky has issued a statement charging the State University authorities with laxity in their investigation of his brothers disappearance The state ment was given out Monday at Lex ington It is as follows- I have been asked for a statement of what I thought of the case of my brother I will say that I think just asI have aways thought thatmy brother started to the college was met somewhere by three or four stu dents who undertook to haze him and in the fight which ensue i he was ac cidentally killed and thebody con cealed I have thought this from the start and the Black Hand letters to gether with the letter from DeCatur have gone far to strengthen my belief If my brother has gone off of his own accord why were those letters written threatening my brother Why was the letter written by one hand and addressed by another which was purported to lie from him1 It is plain they were to try to stop the search and throw us off the track Says Investigation Was Refused As to the investigation which the President in his address of yester day assures us has cleared the col lege of all duty allow me to say I feel there has been no thorough examination I visited the President and members of the faculty asking an investigation but it was refused me the MSnday following my broth 2 tIers disappearance A committee of three mepwas appointed They spent their time trying to prqve had run off not trying to find put really whether he had or not They have started rumor after rumor For instance one professor stated he had com municated with a young lady that had jilted him another he had ron off with a young lady a third he had been worked too hard a fourth he had gone on a bum and uchare some of the results Grand Jury Follows x The grand juryti sev oral clues but no Both I 6 jc 1 t tu J my brother and myself were very much disappointed when we learned that some of the young men who left were not brought before the grand jury They only examined some 45 out of 600 Now how can this be called it thorough examination 1 They may have examined 100 and yet never reached the one who knew We were disappointed that the grand jury did not examine every student Not withstanding the presidents state ment it is not done with and will not be until my brother is found Does Flot Blame All Please understand me I am not blaming the college as a whole I am not saying the student body as a whole knew anything of him But I feel sure someone there can tell something of my brother The public may feel sure that though it costs us all wehave we will not till investigation cease a thorough is made and our brother is foundSigned A E SMITH JUDGE HAYS SPEAKS FOR DEMOCRATIC PARTY To Address the

further back than 1835 Prior to that time even our mili tary music was produced almost entirely from instruments of wood fand as recently as 1783a a tulI1eg mental band consisted ofj two oboes two clarinets two horns and two bassoonsiAs showing the important part played by the sounding brass jn our bands today it is sufficient to mention that in an uptodate first class band of say fortytwo

in the nursery and his sister did not call him back as he swung out of the room and up the stairs But when he had disappeared Nina dropped Into her chair aware that she had piayed her best card prematurely forced by Ros amend who had Just told her that rumor continued to be very busy cou pling her brothers name with the name of the woman who once had been hlkwife Nina was now thoroughly convinced of Allxes unusual capacity for making mischief always and gshe from a tal ented restless erratic emotional girl easily moved to generosity Into an impulsive woman reckless to the point of ruthlessness when ennui and I unhappiness stampeded her a woman not deliberately selfish not wittingly Immoral for she lacked the passion wKich her emotion was sometimes mistaken for and she was kind by in stlnct Sufficiently intelligent to suffer from the sack of it in others cultured to the point of recognizing culture her dan gerous unsoundness lay In her utter lack of mental stamina when conditions became unpleasant beyond her will not her ability to endure them The consequences of her own errors she refused to be burdened with To escape somehow was her paramount r impulse and she always tried tohad always attempted it even in school days and further back when Nina first remembered her as a thin eager restless little girl scampering from one scrape into another at full speed Even In those days there were moments when Nina believed her to be actually irrational but there was every reason not to say so to the heedless scatterbrain whose father In the prime of life sat all day in his room his faded eyes fixed wistfully on the child ish toys which his attendant brought to him from his daughters nursery All this Nina was remembering and again she wondered bitterly at Alixes treatment of her brother and what ex planation there could ever be for it except one- Lately too Alixe had scarcely been at pains to conceal her contempt for her husband if what Rosamund related was true It was only one more headlong scrape this second marriage and Nina knew Allxe well enough toI expect the usual stampede toward that gay phantom which was always beck oning onward to promised happiness that goal of hearts desire already lying so far behind her and farther still for every step her little flying feet were taking in the oldest the vainest the most hopeless chase in the world the headlong hunt for happiness And If that blind hunt should lead once more toward Selwyn Suppose freed from Ruthven she turned in her tracks and threw herself and her youthful unhappiness straight at the man who had not yet destroyed the picture that Nina found when she visited her brothers rooms with the desire to be good to him with rocking chairs Not that she really believed or feared that Philip would consider such an impossible reconciliation pride and a sense of the absurd must always check any such weird caprice of her broth ers conscience and yetand yet other amazing and mismated couples had done ithad been reunited And Nina was mightily troubled for Alixes capacity for mischief was boundless and that she in some man ner had already succeeded in stirring up Philip was a rumor that persisted and would not be annihilated To inform a man frankly that a young girl is a little in love with him Is one of the oldest simplest and east est methods of interesting that man unless he happen to be in love with somebody else And Nina had taken her chances that the picture of Alixe was already too unimportant for the ceremony of incineration Besides what she had ventured to say to him was her belief The child appeared to be utterly absorbed in her increasing SelwynLove Nina under stood that But its germ was still dormant but bedded deliciously in congenial soilthe living germ in all its latent promise ready to swell with the first sudden heart beat quicken ith the first quickening of the pulse unfold into perfect symmetry If ever the warm even current

sewing away Diligently also looked uix then scrambled to her feet as Selwyii halt edon the threshold of the room Why how odd you look said Ei leen laughing Come in please Su sanneand I are only mending some of our summer things Were you in l 4 4 i f search of tile children Dont say so If you were because Im quite happy in believing that you knew I was here youWhere are the children 1 he asked In the park my very rude friend You will find them on the mall if yvu start at once He hesitated but finally seated him self Omitting the little formal hand Eileen looked up shake with which they always met even after an hours separation Of course she noticed this and bend ing low above her sewing wondered whyIt seemed to him for a moment as though he were looking at a woman he had heard about and had just met for the first time His observation of her now was leisurely calm and thor oughnot so calm however when impatient of his reticence bending there over her work she raised her lark blue eyes to his her head remaining lowered The sweet silent inspection lasted but a moment Then she resumed her stitches aware that something in him had changed since she last had seen him But she mere ly smiled quietly to herself confident of his unaltered devotion in spite of the strangely hard and unresponsive gaze that had uneasily evaded hers- As her white fingers flew with the glimmering needle she reflected on con ditions as she had left them a week ago A week ago between him and her the most perfect of understand ings existed and the consciousness of it she hail carried with her every mo ment in the countryamid the icy tumble of the surf on long vigorous walks over the greening hills where wild moorland winds whipped like a million fairy switches till the young blood fair ly sang pouring through her veins Since thatsome time within the weeksomethIng evidently had hap pened to him here in the city while she had been away What As she bent above the fine linen gar ment on her knee needle flying a sud den memory stirred coldlythe recol lection of her ride with Rosamund and instinctively her clear eyes flew cpen and she raised her head turning directly toward him a disturbed gaze he did not this time evade In silence their regard lingered then satisfied she smiled again saying Have I been away so long that we must begin all over Captain Selwyn 1P Begin what Eileen To remember that the silence of selfish preoccupation is a privilege I have not accorded you I didnt mean to be preoccupied Oh worse and worse She shook her head and began to thread the nee dle I see that my weeks absence has not been very good for you I knew it the moment you came In with all that guilty absentminded effrontery which I have forbidden He colored up as he tQok her hand in his Then they both laughed at the very vigorous shake What a horribly unfriendly creature you can be said Eileen Never a greeting never even a formal expression of pleasure at my return You have not returned he said smiling You have been with me every moment Eileen What a pretty tribute she exclaim ed I am beginning to recognize traces of my training after all When tile children came in they left the nursery together and descended the stairs to the library Austin had just come In and he looked up from his solitary cup of tea as they en teredHello youngsters What conspiracy are you up to now I suppose you sniffed the tea and have come to deprive me By the way Phil I hear that youve sprung the trap on those Siowitha people Neergard has I believe Well isnt it all one No it is not retorted Selwyn so bluntly that Eileen turned from the window at a sound in his voice which she had never before heard UOh Austin stared over his sus pended teacup then drained it Trou be with our friend Julius he in qured No trouble I merely severed my connection with him iAlit When morning In that case said Austin laugh ing Ive a job for you No old fellow and thank you with all my heart Ive half made up my mind to live on my income for awhile and take up that chaosite matter again V4And blot yourself to jsmithereens jJ r ybt Why spatter nature thus r- No fear Isaid Selwyn laughing And if it promises anything I may come to you for advice on how to start it commercially If it doesu tr start you heavenward you shalTiiaytfmy advice from safe distance rift telegraph its saldj Austin ut it its not persqnali why on earth have you shaken Neergardr- And Sehryil answered simply I dont like him That Is the reason AustinThe children from the bead of the stars were nowshouting demands for their father and Austin rose pretending to grumble Those confounded kids A man is never permitted a moment to himself He drew from his pocket a flat box Is Nina up there Eileen Oh all right Excuses etc Ill be back pretty soon Youll stay to dine Phil r1 dont think so Yea he will stay said Eileen calm lyAnd when Austin had gone she walk ed swiftly over to where Selwyn was standing and looked him directly in the eyes ls an well with GeraldrYyes I suppose so Is he still with Neergard Cor- Yes Eileen And you dont like Mr Neergardr Gerald must not remain He said Very quietly EIleen Gerald no longer takes me into his confidence I am afraid I know in factthat I have little influence with him now I am sorry It hurts but your brother ia his own master and he is at liberty to choose his own friends and his ovr business policy I cannot influence him I have learned that tfanrontrhlv wetter that I retain what real friend ship he has left for me than destroy it by any attempt however gentle to interfere in his affairs She stood before him straight slen der her face grave and troubled I cannot understand she said how he could refuse to listen to a man like youA man like me Eileen Well if I were worth listening to no doubt hed listen But the fact remains that I have not been able to hold his inter estDont give him up she said still looking straight into his eyes If you care for me dont give him up Care for you Eileen You know I do Yes I know it So you will not give up Gerald will you He isIstifaly a boy You know that You know he has beenperhapsindiscreet- But Gerald Is only a boy Stand by him Captain Selwyn because Austin does not know how to manage him really he doesnt There has been another unpleasant scene between them Gerald told me Did he tell you why Eileen Yes He told me that he had play ed cards for money and he was in debt I know that sounds almost disgraceful but is not his need of help nil the greater Selwyns eyes suddenly narrowed Did you help him out this tim- eIIhow do you mean Captain Selwyn 7 But the splendid color in her face confirmed his certainty that she had used her own resources to help her brother pay the gambling debt and he turned away his eyes angry and silent Yes she said under her breath Ii did aid him What of it Could I refuse I know Dont aid him againthat way She stared You mean Send him to me child I understand such matters Ithat Is And in sudden exasperation inexplicable for the moment to them both Dont touch such matters again They soil I tell you I will not have Gerald go to you about such things My own brother What do you meanI 1 mean that brother or not he shall not bring such matters near you Am I to count for nothing then when Gerald is In trouble she demanded flushing up Count Count he repeated impa tiently Of course you count Good heavens Its women like you who count and no othersnot one single other sort is of the slightest consequence in the world or to itShe had turned a little pale under his vehemence watching him out of eyesiWhat how much of his Incoherence she was able to translate is a question but in his eyes and voice there was something simpler to divine and she stood very still while his roused emotions swept her till her heart leaped up and every vein in her ran fiery pride considerscheme of things But I must try to if you believe all this of me only you must teach me how to count for some- thIng in the world Will you Teach you Eileen What winning mockery I teach you Well then I teach you thisthat a mans blunder Is best healed by a mans sympathy I will stand by Gerald as long as he will Ietme do so not alone for your sake nor only for his but formr own Yh L promise you mat Are you Con tented ill Yes She slowly raised one hand laying It fearlessly in both of hisiHe IB all I ave left she said You know that I know childJ Then thank you Captain Selwyn No I thank you for giving me this charge It means that a man must raise his own standard of living before he can accept such responsibility You endow me with all that a man ought to be and my task is doubled for it is not only Gerald but I myself who require surveillance- He looked up smilingly serious Such women as you alone can fit your brother and me for an endless guard duty over the white standard you have planted on the outer walls of the worldYou say things to me sometimes she faltered that almost hurt with the pleasure they give Did that give you pleasure 1 Yyes the surprise of It was almost too top keen I wish you would not but I am glad you did You seedrop ping into a great velvet chairhavIng been of no serious consequence to any body for so many years to be told suddenly that Ithat I count so vitally with mena man like you She sank back drew one small hand across her eyes and rested a moment then leaning forward she set her el bow on one knee and bracketed her chin between forefinger and thumb Ive not had you to talk to for a whole week she said and youll lot me wont you I cant help it any way because as soon as I see you crack a million thoughts wake up in me and clipperclapper goes my tongue You are very good for me You are so thoroughly satisfactory except wher your eyes narrow in that dreadful far away gaze which Ive forbidden you understand What have you done to your mustache Clipped it uOh I dont like it too short Can you get hold of it to pull It Its the only thing that helps you In perplexity to solve problems Youd be utterly helpless mentally without your mus tache Shall we take up our Etruscan symbols again when you come down to stay with us at Silverside Indeed we shall he said smiling Which also reminds me He drew from his breast pocket a thIn flat box turned it round and round and glanced at her balancing it teasingly in the palm of his hand Is it for me Really Oh please dont be provoking Is it really for me Then give it to me this Instant He dropped the box Into the pinkhol low of her supplicating palms For a moment she was very busy with the tissue paper then said Oh it Is perfectly sweet of you turning the small book bound in heavy Etruscan gold Whatever can it be And rising she opened it stepping to the window so that she could see Within the pages were closely cov ered with the minute careful hand writing of her father It was tho first notebook he ever kept and Selwyn had had it bound for her in gold For an instant she gazed breathless lips parted Then slowly she placed the yellowed pages against her lips and turning looked straight at Sel wyn the splendor of her young eyes starred with tears To be I1tinu r1I130 MILES AN HOUR The electric locom live has its steam brother badly whipped as to speed and it only remains to build tracks that will bear trains at over one hundred miles an Hour to learn just what can be expected of the electric trains At the celebrated Berlin Zossen speed trials in 1903 there was establishel the amazing 130 miles an hour record the fast est that any man or manmade ma chine ever traveled It is almost two hundred feet a second or equal to the speed a man would attain in falling from the top ofa twenty story building It is a speed so great that a deflection of one of the rails of an eighth of an inch is sufficient to throw a train off the track Tt is so fast that the front of the locomotive has to have a great knife shield to cut the wind which otherwise would either check the speed or crush in the front of the eneiiie A train running at this frightful speed of 130 miles would circumnavigate the globe in a week It would mace the Pacific within twentyfours of the Atlantic Will such a thing ever come to pass I Perhaps A hundred years ago thirty miles an hour was a marvelous speed now it is common If a train can make 130 now experimentally why may not this speed he common in the

which have gone abroad about American society are largely formed by a few people who love the limelight and do not in any way represent the real tone of that society according to the conclusion reached in the October number of the Delineator by Mrs Astor whose advancing years lately compelled her to abdicate the social throne which she had so long occupied Although few Mrs Astor asserts these people are appallingly active and have done untold harm to the good name of American society in the minds of foreigners Their sole object she declares is notoriety They have given entertain ments that belonged under a circus tent rather than in a gentlewomans own home When a distinguished man arrives from the other side he is seized upon relentlessly although possibly a stranger his hostess and plunged into a mad whirl of extraordi nary festivities He enters upon them with much the same spirit that we would have as spectators of an Indian war dance and thus he forms his opin ion of us I have never entertained a foreigner in my life unless he came to me with a letter of introduction Mrs Astor does not agree with those who think that she could have done a great deal toward making American society democratic as it is in London and open to any one of Intellectual at tainments In her opinion It is only those whose authority like that of the English king or the great old families of England is never questioned who can do these things As to the political salon she consid ers that also Impossible in America since many of our political men seem to base their title to public favor upon their uncouth manners and lack of re finementIf were all llkeMr Roosevelt she adds what a difference there would bel Of the young people of New York society Mrs Astor speaks much more charitably than some other critics They have the Ideas of a new age she says but they are not degenerate and they are not vicious She has heard that the young women smoke and drink and do other terrible things but she does not know one who is a cigarette fiend or who drinks to ex cess Mrs Astor is not vain enough to think New York will not be able to get along very well without her Many women will rise to take her place In- closing she asserts her belief in arepublic where money has a great deal to say as in ours- WHAT A MAN LIKES A General Look of Fresh Air Which Gives the Lie to Laziness An attractive quality of the charm Ing woman lies in absolute neatness Men like to see well kept neatly dress ed hair a skin that looks as though the morning bath were the rule and not the exception well brushed white teeth a well kept pair of hands and a general look of fresh air which gives the lie to laziness The charm- Ing woman will have about her no bits of torn lace buttons off belt crooked and skirt of uneven length revealing possibly untidy shoes Ask a man which of three women he most admires and see If he does not un hesitatingly pick out the one who is well groomed A charge often laid at mans door Is that after all he chooses the silly frivolous girl passing by the good common sense girl who would have made him such an excellent wife toIand uninteresting it is This should teach a girl a most important lesson on the point too often overlooked viz that the charming woman always has a firm foundation of character and common sense which she generally keeps well underneath like the anchor that holds the ship She may seem to sway with every wind of frivolity that blows She is ready for all the fun that is going even to the verge of being a madcap Narrow minded people may want to say spiteful things of her but they cannot truthfully do it because the anchor of character and common sense says to her Thus far and no farther She knows to a hairs breadth where right ends and wrong begins and nothing wrong mean spiteful or unkind enters into her scheme of life It is this combination of strong sweet character with fun and frivolity that gives her that
