"1 never saw that 'ero child in those
parts afore," 6aid an inquisitive dame to
her equally curious daughter in this city,
a day or two ago, "and I mean to find out
who her folks bo an' where she lives
when she's to hum."
A minute later a nasal twang was
heard on the air calling, "Sis, sis, say,
6is, who be you an' where do you be
long?" A proud little figure drew herself up
haughtily and a childish voice responded,
"2Iy mauama has taught me never to
answer impert'nent questions."

A Great Composer.
George Frederick Handel, although a
native of Germany, being Imrn i i I !.!?.
Saxony, on Feb. 2i, 1G83, passed the
greater part of his life in England. Even
in childhood ho sacrificed his hours of
play and his meals for t'ae study of
music, and at 10 years of age composed
a set of sonatas that wero not without
value. As a composer, TTandel was
great in every style. In his choral works,
he throws at an immeasurable distance
all who preceded and followed liirn.
Very soon after Ids arrival in London,
in 1710, Handel attracted the attention
of Queen Anne. A Te Deum and Jubi
late, composed to celebrate the treaty of
Utrecht, gained liim a Tension of 200.
Handel died on Good I Yiday, April 13,
1759, and was buried in Westminster
Abbey. The composer ave a perform
ance of his own compositions in 1749,
by which 500 were realized for the
Foundling hospital, which institution re
ceived 7,000 from the annual repetition
of this performance during the ten fol
lowing years. Philadelphia Times.
A Shrewd Otter.
One day as I was s';andingon the shore
of Cranberry bog pond j saw a large flock
of ducks near the nr.ddle of the pond and
soon after discovered three otters in
front of me, but not near enough to shoot.
While watching tie maneuvers of the
otters they started down the pond in a
straight line for the ducks. The old
leader struck out lively, leaving his mates
far behind, and as he neared the ducks he
dived and presently I saw one of the
ducks disappear beneath the surface after
a considerable struggle, the remainder of i
ine iiock rising anu iiymg away in great
commotion. The otter had gone under
the floc k and selected a certain duck and
pulled him under. A few minutes later
tho otter made his appearance near the
south shore of the pond with the duck in
his mouth. Forest and Stream.
Improvement in Farm Tools.
Wo hear very little about the advance
of improvemenl; in agricultural imple
ments and farm machinery, but that
branch of the industrial pursuits of the
country is keeping abreast of the times,
nevertheless. The plow of twenty-five
years ago is now a curiosity, and those
who sold and used it cannot realize how
it was made to serve tne purposes for
which it was manufactured. And the
plow of a dec ade since, while perhaps
not so crude, has been abandoned for a
better implement. And so it is all
through tho list of agricultural imple
ments and faim machinery, and in an
other quarter of a century it is possible
that the farmer will walk no more in the
cultivation of his farm. St. Louis Globo-
Japanese oranges are different from
our ideal of an orange as they can well
be, separating from the peel almost as
easily as a grape, dividing into sections
at the slightest pull, each section like a
separate fruit, dissolving its piece into
your mouth with flavor of cherries,
leaving no pulp behind. Very good, ex
cellently good, they are. They, the
latest of her fruits, add the crown of ex
cellency to the already overflowing cor
nucopia of this "Beautiful Land of the
