Everyone knows that there is an af
finity between actresses ami million
aires or the sons of millionaires, but
probably tl e I est it g'snce of It is found
in the Could family. George, the eld
est son, married a woman from the
stage. Then Anna, a daughter, lie
came engaged to an actor, but threw
hi tn over for a French count, and now
comes Howard, another son, who, it Is
said, has either secretly married or is
engaged to marry an actress. There is
another daughter, Helen, but she Is
engaged only in charities, and a son,
Edwin, but the only matches he is con
cerned with are of the Im-lfer variety.
There is no fashionable cane at the
present day. A few years ago every
other man on the street carried a cant-.
As n general thing it had a more or
iess elaborate silver head. The de- i
maud for these articles was great,
and to meet it the manufacturers turn
ed out cheap plated-sllver heads In all
the stjles of the genuine article. Then '
came the affectation of slim bamlwo
crooks that could tie had for a dollar. ;
They were light and unassuming, and j
were very popular. These are out of ,
date now, and the canemukers say
that there is no standard design for j
walking sticks. The reason Is that
they are out of fashion. Business- '
men have seen tlie folly of lugging a !
able circles It has been decided that it
Is a lack of courtesy to carry a cn
when one goes to call. In fact, the
cane is relegated to walking expedi
tions. The newspapers of New York have
been indulging In ponderous Jests over
the domestic infelicities that have come
to the surface lu certain other cities,
and having bei-ome so artful lu exploit
ing this vein of humor they ore furnish
ed now happily with a broader field for
Its exercise. The fact has Just come to
light that "by actual count there are
15,000 husbands within the limits of
New York now under txmds to support
their wives. These deserted wives,
pinched with want, besiege the city
courts and block the machinery of the
law wirb their clamors for redn."
The quotation Is made from a New
York newspaper. This is a condition
that presents practically boundless pos
sibilities for the humor of any one who
can see anything funny In It. New
York newspapers need nat go afield any
longer for food for merriment. These
15,000 "deserted wives pinched with
want" dwarf the pretensions of any
other community in the same Una.
Evangelist Mcdy seems to have al
lowed himself to drift into the sensa
tional methods of Sam Jones during his
revival work in Boston, and has re
ceived a very sharp rebuke from the
Rev. Dr. Lorimer, a popular minister of
that city. Mr. Moody has repeatedly
asserted In bis public addresses that
there are men In Boston "who occupy
leading places in the membership of
wealthy churches, and pay their big
pew rentals and get the money for
generous and various benevolent con
tributions to send the gospel to the
heathen, and to carry on other church
work, by letting bulldlags for Immoral
purpose." Dr. Lorimerreklfa upon him
either to name these wafted sepulehers
or to keep silence, at The same time ex
pressing the belief that be has no ac
tual knowledge on the subject to dis
close, and is, Indulging In the stock In
trade of cheap sensationalists, which
he should be aliove using. It Is rathe'
remarkable that evangelists, great or
small, should ever allow themselves to
no traduce the church which they are
constantly urging people to enter. It
does not recommend the church to sin
ners to be told, on at least semi-official
authority, that it contains rascals of
high degree. No doubt every religious
organization contain some hypocrites,
some wolves In sheep's clothing, but
theae persona do fnt give character to
the church. They are In tlu? minority,
and they keep their evil doing hidden
as far as possible. It Is cheap criticism
of the church to charge It with harbor
ing sinners when to harbor them rtnd
help them to better way is tta only mis
sion. Mr. Moody hurts rather than
help bis cane by such preaching.

I.ixt spring I planted a slxteen-acre

been mowed the year before and part

cutworms cut a great deal of It off.
Some of this was replanted and some

Incident which occurred one morning
when I went out to see if the squirrel
were tak ng up the corn. 1 was ou
the point of returning home when I
saw a little ground squirrel runuiug
up a stump and sitting down to sun
himself. I thought It was my chance.
I shot him. but before he died he threw
eventhing out of his bowel which
he had secured for his breakfast, and
much to my surprise 1 failed to find
any com but numerous worms. 1"hiu
counting I found exactly twenty-one;
mostly cutworms. I have not killed
any ground squirrels siuce. And I.
therefore, think that the squirrel is
the farmer's friend.
The corn did not do well all sum

Some farmers have learned that ears
of corn merely broken from the stalk
and uiihuskcd are eaten by cattle with
less likelihood of injury than if com U
husked and fed on the ear, the usual
way. The husk makes a porous addi
tion to the ration and prevents the
grain from fermenting. But when corn
Is snapped from the stalk, there is a
bard, rough stub at the butt of the
ear that has little nutrition, and may
very easily be Injurious. If the stock
Is valuable. It will pay for the extra
cost of husking ami grinding the corn.
In the greater amount of nutrition the
animals will get from their food.

using a table constructed for the pur

It Is well to have In the garden In

that would otherwise lie around as rub

trench may be used to receive the

Fond du Lac young women conceived
the Idea of et:i hlishing a shirt and

Tare of the Hair.
To assume a new coiffure in these
days requlr.e no little thought. Now
that the Inevitable "part" Is bidding
farewell one ventures to ak, "What
next?" for there seem no really new
and becoming arrangement of the
tresses which caii so readily be ac
quired a that of the now dying fash
ion. For evening wear a pivtty style, and
one which may le adopted by young
and old, ls that of drawing the li&lr
high on the head and arranging In soft
puffs, the front to lie slightly waved a
la pompadour, though showing a slight
part. Iu each side of the hair use one
of the new poiiiidour combs, pushing
the teeth toward the face. This will so
catch the hair as to make a small puff
behind the ear, which lends charm to a
thin face. In using a curling Iron care
should le taken that no Blgns of lu use
should lie noticeable. For waves It Is
far better to braid the hair over night
In tight and moistened plaits, allowing
the hair at the same time to grow, for
nature demands the freedom from hair
pins at time to relieve the root of the
hair from an all day task of being twist
ed and pinned to suit the tswsessor'g
taste. The fashion now demands that
side comb and elalsirate pins shall 1m?
worn by milady of fashion and of these
styles for the day wear must lie simple,
while those for evening must possess

many of these long lived women are

not be very easy to show that women
