All women work ; soma in their

their dally bread.
All are subject to the same physical

physical disturbance, and the nature of
their duties, in many eases, quickly
, drifts them into the horrors of all

suppression, causing backache, ner

They especially require an invigorat

Of the day, to sleep well at night, and
to rise refreshed and cheerful.

little of it among Italians.

there is not something for them to do
in America besides digging in the
streets and sewers. At a recent meet
ing of grangers I unfolded this suDjec",
and it was taken up with enthusiasm,
with a promise to do all possible to
induce the farmers of New England to
employ the sons of Italy. They arc
not drunkards; they are intelligent ami
they are faithful.
"The farmers fear the difficulty of
language; but they employoAer- for?

without trouble, and the Italians learn
more readily than either, and besides
they understand the language of ges
tures better than any others.

MOVEMENT OF A GLACIER,

y Feet in a Year.
It had long been supposed that no
true glaciers remain in the Rockies
south of Wyoming, a supposition now
known to be incorrect, says Junius
Henderson, in Harper's Magazine.
North of Long's Peak two ice fields
have been described and referred to as
glaciers by men whose determinations
are entitled ..o consideraole weight,
though on the whole they parta,ke
more of the nature of neve and are so
considered by some geologists.- This
difference of opinion is entirely ex
cusable on the ground that the divid
ing line between neve and glacier is
indistinct, "t'ie one passing Into the
other by inse.-sible gradation." How
ever, explorations carried on in the
last five years have brought to ligh,
an ice stream which is so distinctly
a glacier as to leave no chance for q
dispute as to its character. It has been
visited by experienced geologists,
mapped, photographed and thoroughly,
Arapahoe glacier is about a mile
long and is situated amid scenery as
inspiring as any in the southern Rock
ies. It occupies an amphitheater or
glacial cirque upon the east side of the
Arapahoe Peaks, the peaks and their
thin, sharp, serrated connecting ridge
forming the semi-circular rim of the
cirque, the ridges running eastward
from the north and south peaks form
ing the walls of the ancient glacial
valley, The highest point on the rim
of the cirque is 13,700 feet above sea
- No measurements were necessary to
convince our first exploring party that
the ice was moving. To the student of
glacial phenomena the evidence on
every hand was easily read as a print
ed page and as convincing as a mathe
matical demonstration, but it remained,
to determine the rate of movement;
Consequently, on a later visit, we set.
up the instruments on the granitic
north wall and placed a line of zinc
tablets across the face of the ice. Re-j
turning exactly one year later, we
found that the tablets had moved in
bmounts varying from 11.15 feet at a
point 300 feet from the edge, to '27.7
feet at a point near the center.

He denounced the scheme as unholy

lady, "how do you know so much about

How She Always Knew.
AH alone on the hilltops lived Han
nah Jane Sprigglns, and a lonely life
she led, this ancient maid. Much to
the wonder of the good people of the
village of Medbybemps, she- was never
at a loss for news, and when neigh
bors called with stray bits of informa
tion, Hannah Jane always knew it
long before it had been spread broad
cast through the tows.
"Say, did ye know Sam Whitten's
Anne had a shock?" volunteered an
excited female, dropping in on Hannah
Jane early one evening, just as that
peaceful soul was sipping her nightly
brew of lea.
"Taken at 2 o'clock this afternoon,"
calmly replied that lady, serenely;
"had to send for that know-nothing
crittur of a Dr. Smith, 'cause Dr.
Brown wasn't home. Got Sam Ketch
urn's Tabitfaa for a nurse."
"For the land's sakes, Hannah,
how'd ye know it?" gasped the as
tounded caller. "You ain't had time
to go down to the village and back
Since it happened." Hannah Jane
shook her head in mysterious fashion.
"You do beat all for getting the news
first," continued the neighbor, with an
injured air. "How in time's sake do
ye manage." Hannah Jane meditated
a moment, then beckoned to her guest,
who was one of her " oldest friends.

winding stairs that ; led to a turret
chamber at the top of the house. This
room had been made for her father,

that h, could , watch the vessels as

From an ancient bureau in the cor

briefly, as she took out her treasure
from the numerous wrappings. "Niece
