went on altout them. Just as so many

came home in the evening wilh a ra!l
a.nt face am! a sprightly step in spite
of the long day's work, for there was a
great jny in her heart.
Ir was nearly a week before she saw
Philip again, and meanwhile things
had gone very badly with him. iier
heart smote her as she beheld his worn
and troubled countenance. All the life
ami hope had gone out of it. She rose
to meet him as he walked unsteadily
across the floor.
"Olivia," he said. "I have come to tell
you something something that it al
most kills me to say. May God grant
that it may not cause yon the pain to
bear that it does me to speak It"
He paused a moment and bowed his
bead in bis hands. There were tears
In bis eyes.
"I have loved .sou well." he went on,
"and heaven knows that I have tried
to Io all In my iiower to make myself
worthy of you, but either unwisdom or
misfortune has undone me and I am
going to give you back your freedom.
I have no right to ask you to wait lon
ger upon me and 1 cannot marry you
now, for, unless there Is a change by
to-morrow night. 1 shall have to make
an assignment."
"I aiu so thankful, Philip, that It is
nothing worse than that. I don't want
uiy freedom back. Your success or fail
ure can neither kill nor affect mv lore."
"But I will not sacrifice you, my dar
ling." "And you need not" She pressed
something into bis band and he flushed
crimson as ne iookcu at It. It was
money, in large bills and small; enough
to put him on bis feet again ami give
him a start But he held it out to her.
"Take it back. Olivia!" he cried. "I
will not consent to use your money!"
"It Is not my money. It Is money
procured upon the stock of 'Robinson &
Co., milliners. "
He looked up in surprise.
"Oh, Philip, can you forgive my de
celt?" she cried. "My heart was so set
on that store that I bought it In moth

will do atone for the wrong?"

Before deciding as to Ihe color of
your next new dress bear in mind the
following nib's, which have been given
by a well known artist: Choose always
such tints as may actually be found
in the hair, eyes or complexion.
For instance, a woman with blue-gray
eyes should wear blues and grays; a
brunette, creams, browns and yellows.
Women with florid complexions look
their ts-st In plum ami heliotrope, also
In those grays which contain a tinge
of pink and In red browns. Fair wom
en should wear dead blacks, woolen

look best In satins or silks.

It is highly Important, in order to get

actually touching one another. Then
put above them six Inches of loose.

lengthwise, aud laid cut side down,

every week (washing dayl with good

If a crust forms or bakes ou the sur

of mellow earth above them, or your
slips may ls too short to set out well.
Never set out the slips In very wet
weather, puddling the roots or water

a little water In the hole with the slips,
then fill in on top with dry earth.

choice of colors for the fancy fowl,
says the Orange .ludd Fanner. Many
old races, w hen kept pu -e, are really
fine In appearance and valuable in
productive qualities; but often when
two pure old races are -rossed, the
product of the union of the two seems,
after the first cross, not so productive
as either of the parent breeds, and
the spjiearance of the cross Is coarse,
never to be depended on for any spe
cially desired points. The Illustrations
that accompany this article present por
traits of two old races of geese- tha
F.mbden, the famous of the Ger
mans, and the Toulouse, the splendid
French breed, both grifturnoes when
kept true. In the third s,'; la

Spring is the best time to make fences
of any kind. The ground Is soft for
digging the holes In which to set posts,
ami after they are set there Is tlma
for the soli to compact before winter.
If posts are set in the fall It Is very
bard to keep the fence straight during
the first winter, as the posts will be
lifted by freezing or bliwu over by
heavy winds in early spring. When
frost Is out of the soil the best made
fall fence will need more or less earu.
It Is better to leave the making of the
fence until spring. It can be done lie
fore the soil is fit to be plowed or work
ed In any way, and when other work
Is not pressing.

is needed to prevent slipping.
It ia claimed that this Invention will
also lessen the expense of shoeing,
rendering It unnecessary to change as
often as Is done with the old style

Hi ll Lcghorna Ksrlv,
A crossbred leghorn will produce,
flno broilers, nml even a purebred
I'ghorn chick Is excellent but they
should be Sold by the time they reach
twenty-four ounces, as n,ey do not
grow as rapidly as the larger breeds
after they art- eight or ten week old.
