Their proposals do not provide either
that nil shall work even us much us
eight hours a day or that those who
are now woiking mere Hutu eight

less than eight hums ror a dayV pay
and those who w oik more receive pay
not only for all of the time they work

"The proposed rules would simply
change fiom a ten-hour to an eight

that one hour's woik shall bo paid for
as one eighth rather than as one
tenth of a da.'s pay, or as P.'i., miles

A KITE AND A GURl
By ROSE MILLER.
Professor Irving and his small son
were constructing a magnificent kite
In the cool shade of the orchard tree's.
"Now, eon, our kite 1b finished all
but the tall we need something bright
and flyaway for the end of our tall
suppose you go up to the house' and
ask Mrs. Keppy for a bit of red ribbon
or tape or something."
Sammy darted away among the
trees, dodged under the fence' and
made a detour through the hayfleld.
Professor Irving whistled over his
task, and when it was completed be
threw himself back on the grass and,
pipe In mouth, dreamily watched the
"I have gotted a flyaway, daddy," an
nounced Sammy's voice.
Professor Irving sat up, yawned, and
In the very act paused with his mouth
wide open. Mo stared at the trophy
In Sammy's grimy hand.
"What ia that?" ho thundered at
"It's a pretty curl er, flyaway,
"Whero did you got it?" sternly.
"I found it," evasively.
"Well, of all tho amazing things!"
commented his father, taking tho long
silken curl that clung to his fingers
In tho most annoying manner.
Ho smiled as ho folded the curl
carefully and tucked it Into his note
Here was a peppery tempered voice
indeed. The professor turned mild
eyes upon the speaker.
Sho had advanced upon them from
behind the trees, and sho was a vcri
tablo Goldilocks, albeit her hair was
a showor of red-golden curls that hung
far below her waist. Sho woro a faded
lawn frock, and about her neck was
tied a hugo bath towel.
Professor Irving had struggled to
his feet, his puzzled faco partaking of
tho embarrassment that clouded his
son's. "What do you mean?" ho
nsked. "What has Sammy done?"
"That I" she pointed tragically to
tho curl. j
Slowly Sammy's father opened the
book, took out the dainty silken curl
and regarded It with bewildered eyes.
"My curl,, If you please!" she de
"I am very sorry, for what Sammy
haB done," said the professor gently.
"You sec, wo have been making a kite,
and 1 sent him up to ask my house
keeper for a bit or ribbon for tho end
of tho tall wo needed a gay flyi
away. Ho brought this back. He said
ho found it In the garden."
"Sammy found it In the garden, but
not in his own garden," said the girl,
with eyes suddenly brimming with
laughter. "I had been washing my
hair and was drying it In tho rectory
garden. I was sitting on tho grass,
sewing, when suddenly 1 missed my
scissors. Just as I turned to search
for them I felt a tug and heard a snip
ping sound and Sammy was running
away with ono of my curls!"
Sammy bawled lustily and burrowtid
his head under his father's arm.
"Never mind, Sammy," she said at
last. "I am sure you didn't mean to
do a naughty thing. If you will como
with mo I will find you a bright rib
bon for a flyaway."
Sammy smiled at Goldilocks and
tucked his hand in hers.
"I will send him homo soon," sho
smiled. Then sho turned nnd added:
"I am tho rector's niece, Miss Allen."
Sho went away with Sammy, and when
tho two had disappeared among tho
trees the professor still stood there
staring after them, with tho reel-gold
curl twining around his fingers, as the
Imago of its owner was entwining It
self about his heart.
And tho professor neglected to re
turn that curl to Roso Allen. In fact,
ho kept It always. "For," said lie aft
erward, "a man may keep a curl of his

Those Pestiferous Sparrows.
Mr. Dearborn says the English spar
row reduces tho number of somo of
our most useful and attractive native
birds, such as bluebirds, house wrens,
purplo martins, tree swallows, cliff
swallows and ham swallows, by de
stroying their eggs and young and by
usurping nesting places. It attacks
tho robin, wren, redcyed vlreo, cat
bird and mocking bird, causing thorn
to desert pnrks and shady streets of
towns. L'nllko our natlvo nlrds,
whoso plnco It usurps, It has no song,
but Is noisy and vlt iperntlvn. It de
nies buildings ami ornamental trees,
shrubs and vines with lis excrement
anil with Its bulky nests.
It was formerly tho custom to ob
tain tho funds to maintain principal
thoroughfares by collecting a toll from
thoso using them. Pikes or gates
were set across tho roads by tho keep
er or toll collector.
To prevent peoplo who traveled his
road from passing without paying tho
toll he was armed with a pike, a long
handled stick with a sharp Iron head.
This was put across ns a barrier, anil
when the toll was paid It was turned
aside to permit tho carriago or wagon
to pasB on Its way. Hence the name
