hoped tlmt It will not prove n mcro iMissltig

ments, nnd ono which nn Ingenious woman
may accomplish without help from tho car
penter, consists of two largo cushions nt tilled
with oxeelslort, thoy should lo from n yard
and n tpinrtor to two yards square, nnd at
least n foot nml n hnlt thick. Thoy should
bo stuffed very full nnd hard; tho bottom of
tho lower ono should bo covered with a pleco
of oilcloth to protect it from wear nnd tear.

A canopy of long, hanging drupery may

not covered), although n Japanese iimbrolln
raised over ono gives a good ciroct. Theso
largo cushions nro es)oelulry useful In a

not for tho troublo of taking olT tho shams
nnd undressing tho lied. In this cozy nook
ono mny (lud rest without extra work.
Still nnother wny to bring about tho snmo
effect Is to hnvo n thrco cornered shelf built
nliout a foot from tho lloor, put n full val

nnd tho thing Is finished. Tho spaco under

A COZY NOOK.
A moro pretentious comer, though not so
large, was arranged In a room which had a
dado of Jiiuuieso matting. A triangular box
nliout the height of uu ordinary chair was
Hindu to lit and fastened there securely. Tho
binges should Ihi put on tho front, or tho lid
will not open well. Tho box made a con
venient receptacle for newspapers, work bas
ket, slippers, or nny of tho necessary debris
of daily use, which Is sometimes unsightly.
A cushion wns mado to (It tho top, ami cov
ered with furnlturu plush; a pleco of tho
Bnmo was tacked on smoothly across tho
front. Another straight pleco was fastened
to tho wall liehind tho seat to tho height of
the dado. Aliove this was stretched a ploco

On u lino with tho bottom of tho friczo was
a three cornered shelf; below this was a foot

On a lino with tho lower edge of tho lattlco
was stretched n small bnixs rod, from which
hung soft silken curtains. On tho shelf were
Jars of Mexican jmttery and other largo brlo-u-brac

A square nook mny Ixj nrrangod by placing
a curtain polo four foot long securely against

Consulting tlio Stars.
It is strange that many crsons yet
confound astronomy with astrology, u
result of the undue importance which
ersonal and private interests have over
scientific principles in tlio thoughts of
many jiersotis. Not many weeks ago wo
received a letter from a subscriber who
wished to Imj informed whero ho could
11 lid a text liook of astrology.
It is said that the astronomer royal,
who has chntgeof Greenwich olworvn
tory, frequently receives letters aslcing
what his terms are for drawing a horo
bcoeI Tho writers of these letters of ten
promise to make known, if necctmary,
tho true day and hour of their birth.
Such incidents call to mind a story told
of Hcrbchcl, tlio astronomer.
During it very rainy beason a farmer
in his neighborhood camu to ask his
opinion, or rather tho opinion of tho
stars, as to tho day that would best dilit
for making his hay without any fear of
losing it by bhowers.
Tho great astronomer led tho man to
a window and tainted with his linger to
a meadow where the grabs had bevn
mowed and was rotting in tho wet.
"You bee, that field," buid ho. "Well,
it is mine. Isn't that enough to show
you that as regards rain and lino weather
I am not a bit more of a conjurer than
any of my ncighliorsV" Youth's Com
panion." A Steer In tlix llimstk
A drove of Texas cattle woro being
driven across the raihoad tracks near
the Martcll house. One of the drove, a
large steer, became separated from the
others and ran down the tracks into the
Vandalia yards. IJeing close pressed by
William Little, tlio driver, tho Btoer
mounted tho outsido stairs of a two story
tenement house situated close to Uiu
round liouso, and entered tho kitchen
and took jiosstssion. Mrs. A. O. Hon
nesy.with her liaby in her arms, had just
time to escape by a kick stairway and
stive tho life of herbelf and child. The
infuriated steer upset tho kitchen table,
smashed the dishes, broke the chairs ami
other furniture, and overturned tho
stove. Tho driver mounted tho stairs
and, after some difficulty, managed to
get a ring in the animal's nose, but it
broke nnd was useless. The animal, af
ter having completely w-rceked the room,
leisurely descended the stairs and was
captured. St. Louis Uepublie.

A Orely lt!ir Tim Knit of n KtnMir
ntlne Mntn A Hull's Venerttiirn.
A Scratitott man owned a lank bay
horno that Htooil nearly nineteen hands
high. Tho long legged nnlnml dorotireil
great quantities of ftxxl, and after tho
Scranton man hail made neveral tin
Rticcttwfttl elTorts to ncll him or trado
him oil, lie got n Wnverly farmer to
winter tho homo at a Mated price. In
tho courso of six weokH the voracious
homo had devoured n whole stack of
hay, and the Wnverly man becntno
frantic, lie straightway came to Scran
ton and told the owner of the horse that
tho greedy beast would mitt him finan
cially I H! fore spring, and )m begged the
man to take tho homo away at once,
agreeing to take $.1 a ton for all the hay
the homo had eaten and say no more
nliout it. Them was n good deal of tho
milk of human kindness in the owner of
tlio ho:'.sc, and he made tho discouraged
fanner feel happy hy removing the
home tho next day.
The Uiy nag was an elephant on the
Scranton man's hands for a while, hut
eventually he traded it olf for a pair of
mare mules that ho didn't know any
thing ulxjiit. One of tlio mules proved
to lo a very gentle and docile creature,
wlilla tho other soon convinced her
owner that she had been foaled and
raised right in tho center of the village
of Klckerville, as he expressed it. The
man quickly concluded that it wouldn't
do to keep the mules together, and so he
sold tho gentle mule for 175. The bad
mule, whose iiaino was Jen, was as big
an elephant on his hiimln list he tall horse
hud Ims'H, and how to dispose of her
honorably racked his brain for mouths,
Jeti was sleek and hamlHome, hut nhe
would kick everything to pieces that
was hitched to her. In tho stall she was
as gentle as a kitten until some one
undertook to throw u harness over her
liack. Then her feet Hew, and the liar
nest nnd the man who trjed to put it on
her didn't stnv then1 long, .leu uoiildu l
let any ono ride her, either. S.vciul
smart young men tried to get on her back
in the stall, hut Jen's hind feel Dew so
fast and furiously, nnd her rump iMihhcd
up at such a rapid rati', that Ih.i young
men were glad to go to another part of
the stable and relied for a while.
Along in tho summer an unusually ac
tive young chap ottered to hot Jen's
owner that he could rido tho uiulo five
blocks on out) of tho business avenues.
"I'll liet you 5 you can't," tho man told
the spry fellow, and tho money was put
up at onco. All that tho young man
wanted on Jen when ho rodo her was a
blind bridle and a surcingle, and pretty
soon Jen was led out on tho street in
sight of a crowd that didn't get very
nojir her heels. Tho athletic chap seized
tho bridle reins in his left hand, grascd
tho surcingle on Jim's back with his
right, and soko kindly to tho mule.
Jen was standing still then, hut tho
expression in her moving oars, her owner
said, told him as plainly as words that
tho old Harry would soon Imj to pay.
WiUi a spring tho young man leand to
Jen's kick, and at the same instant Jen's
hind legs begun to play like drum sticks,
while her head went down, and tho ath
lete was astridu of her neck. Hetwccn
kicks Jen whirled around a dozen times
within a circle of twenty feet, and then
Hindu a dash for the ojien door of a gro
cery, in front of which a low awning
exteuded over tho sidewalk. Her would
bo rider saw his danger, ami grab!cd the
caves of the awning with lioth hands,
and Jen kited into tho grocery and 1k
gan to cat apples out of n barrel. Ho
was tho last person who tried to rido licr.
In tho fall Jen met a tragic fate on tho
Delaware and Hudson canal, just lxdow
Ilonosdulo. The man who put her on
tho canal knew all ulxmt her habits, and
had ugtoed to pay $150forlir if ho could
mako her work. He hitched her behind
thrco other mules, and in going less than
half a milo Jen throw herself into tho
canal seventeen times. That exasperated
her driver to tho highest pitch. Tho butt
of his whip was loaded with lead, and
as Jen lay kicking on tho ground, ho hit
her with the loaded butt, crushed her
skull and killed her.
A wealthy coal mino operator in tho
Lackawanna valley owned a 0-year-old
Holsteiu bull that was cross and vicious.
Generally tho bull was tied with a rojio
in a yard hy himself, hut occasionally lie
was allowed to run loose in a yard with
a lot of idlo initio mules. Tho two yards
joined, and one day four or five of tho
mules got in the yard whero tho bull was
tied up nml liegan to act mischievously
around him. Tho barn kccicr saw ono
of them nip tho hull on the flank and cut
up other playful capers. Tho hull didn't
liko to bo played with, hut one mule in
particular seemed to tako delight in teas
ing him. After n while tho old bull got
bellowing mad, and tlio barn keeper
drove tho mules out and put up tho liars.
A fow days after that tho bull was let
loose In iHu mule yard. Ho liegan to
nose around n man tiro heap, apparently
as c monted as could lc, whilo soveral
of i'.,- mules nibbled straw on either sido
of him. At his right stood tho mtilo that
had teased him a fow days lieforo. Tho
barn man was watching them. All at
once, without a bit of warning, tho bull
made a ieious lunge at the mule on his
right, and thrust one of his horns deep
into its left bide. Tho luulu died in no
time, and when they cut it open they
found that tho bull's horn had pierced
tho center of its heart. After that tho
hull tried to kill two men, and he got to

ADVENTURES IN FLORIDA.
T1ii WKStcsl Hnrrni.nl of u Northern Man
In Ui sunny Noutli,
"1 took n trip to Florida for my health,"
tuid a lawyer lu nu uptown cafe last
night, ns ho rat sipping black cofico with
a friend. "At one of the hotels ono day
I met a dlngtiHted northerner, who had
Inviwtcd in nomo town lots through a
glib agent, nnd luwl conie down to find
" ' Whnt havo you got that's fit to cut?
he said to the negro waiter.
M,lWu?on, null,' said the waiter, 'an'
hominy , an' swiocl jiotaioes, an' coot pie.'
" 'Coot pie; what'H that?" mild tho
" 'C-isit pie, salt; don't know whnt coot
plo Is, snhl Why, it's plo mado o' coots.'
"'Of courso 1 know that, you dolt,'
said the northerner, 'but what are coots?'
" 'CiHils, salt, very lino game, wilt;
huuik'II like a duck.'
" 'Had It wings?'
" 'Yes, sab.'
" 'Could It lly?'
" 'Yes, sab.'
" 'Then don't give me any coot lu mine.
Anything that had wings ami could fly
anil didn't get out of this blasted coun
try I despise too much even to eat.'
"This gentleman, you will easily or
celve," continued the lawyer, "had Uv
tome rather soured, the natural result
of investing money in thesnml lots of a
paMT town. The slate really has man)
natural advantages, which are being de
veloped slowly, Hrhiits, but surely.
This man, however, having Immii diveivetl,
could sec nothing good in the country or
Its iM'ople. 1 came up to Jacksonville on
tho train with him from the southern
xirt of the slate, where wo met, ami do
rivisl not a little fun from his sardonic
humor. So did the tubers on tho car.
"At one little station in the wixsls the
train sUipHsl a long time, and wo began
to look around for diversion, Close hy
tho side of the truck, opjiositc tlio sta
tion house, was a patch of corn two or
three acres an exciislingly thin and
sickly looking crop, the soil being llttlo
better than sand. A tall, gaunt hoy of
about 10 years, dressisl from head to
foot in ted jeans, was lazily hoeing and
wis.iling botwism tho rows,
"'Iook at that wretched crop,' said
the northerner. 'Dirty seed, no manure,
KMr soil, baking sun, hoe culture; not
even a plow to stir tho laud deeply, let
alono a "cultivator" to weed It quickly
and often. Tho weisls will havo chokisl
tho south half of tho crop before that
lazy fellow gets the north end clear of
" 'Hoy,' ho called, 'young fellow! It
seems to mo your corn is rather small,
"The Isiy looked at him for a moment,
spat reflectively, and replied: 'Yes, mis

" 'Oh, is that ho? said the questioner,
'but it's rather yellow, Isn't it?'
" 'It is, mister,' replied tho boy. 'Pop
planted the yaller kind.'
" 'Well, I'll bet you ten tonne,' mid
