I Rjiook my head. "Havo hoard of

I lo,tfk tho lawyor'H letter, as a sort of
credential, nnd set out, grumbling n
gond'AIealntwhat I considered Charley's
"chock" In thus making use of me. If
I httd finished up my work before ho
had It was only because 1 had worked
nt ltmore constantly, and now, Instead
of reaping the advantage In the shapo
of a few days rest, he tnado It nn ex- !
cuho for sending mo .oft on a lugubrl- I
otis "mission like this; nnd Charley
won't, no doubt, havo a good legacy,
too, out of It. !
"Ijflbn't supposo It's much," he said
to m&T "Perhaps a hundred or two
hardly worth going down fort you
So I had to gO"-wlth no legacy In
vlowjit all, small or largo!
However, as I havo said, I sot out for
tho pjaco it was Devonshire and In
duciCourso I arrived at tho Uttlo town,
nnd ,;ut up at a hotel for the night.
Tho noxt day, therefore, saw mo
among tho assembled suosts. I found
outltylr.fParchly nnd sllontly showed
him his own letter. "Ah," said he,
"you nro Mr. Wlburn. Very good. Glad
to tg;o you." I did not roplj, so
lie concluded tha I was Chnrloy Wl

way or tho other.
But, when after tho funeral, tho will
ontno to be read, I found Charley was
down for 5,000. That mado me think
It harder lines than ever that I should
havo had to come down In his place.
The weather was atrociously cold; tho
March winds strong nnd blustering,
with showers of sleet and snow, and I
felt cold nnd misorablo. At the end of
tho reading of the will I was making
my way out to to got back to the hotol,
when somo ono said: "Mr. Wlburn, I

"0, now I'm In for it. Here's a nico

did not grow less when he said: "Mllly
wants to 'sneak to you. She has been
looking afyou, and says she can hard-
tly recognize you for her old playfol-
ffow." i"No wonder," I thought. "It
would be strange it she did.")
She came up and shook hands, and
the moment I looked at her I simply fell
.helpless over head and ears In lovo
iben nnd there.
"Don't you remember your Uttlo play

and an entrancing look of her beauti

Slnco I was not too well ofT, cither,
thta would not havo troubled me, but
for that legacy of R,000 I was supposed
to have como in for. "Was that tho se
cret catiso of this sudden friendliness?"
1 mkr-d myself. But when 1 looked at
Mllly and saw tho frank glanco of tho
truthful, honest-looking eyes 1 felt
ashamed of myeolf,
Such good friends did wo three be
come thnt I lingered on In tho plnco for
ft week, during which time I grow dally

day, alone, and confessed the truth to

should havo got that 5,000, whllo you

"Ah!" 1 said, with a sigh, "that Is
Charley's luck and mine. It Js alwaya
tho same always has been, and always
will be, I suppose."
I was thinking what I dared not say
that if that 5,000 had but been mlno I
could havo asked her to be mine, too;
whereas, now, with my poor prospocta
well, of courso, It was folly ovon to
dream of such a thing.
I watched her narrowly after that,
but could bco no difference In her treat
ment of me.
I had written to Charley, telling him
of hlB good fortune, and that I was go
ing to stay on down hero for a fow days.
A r other week slipped by. and I still
Btnld on. At tho end of that tlmo I was
in such n stnto of mind that, ono day,
finding myself nlono with Mllly, I
blurted out my hopeless love for her,
nnd said I should go away at once, for I
folt that I could not possibly stay on
thcro any longer. Mllly, always quiet
and solf-possossed, remained silent
awhile, and then said, looking down:
"I think you had better spoak to pn
pa." "What!" I rapturously exclaimed;
"do you really Did mo hopo, Mllly?
Do you really think thcro Is a possibil

shook my head. "Alas, no!" 1 said,
"such a thing could not hnppcn to mo.

"Woll," said Mllly, composedly,
"thoy eay you never know your luck
till you try; but If you aro too faint
hearted to try, why, of courso "
"I'll go off and find the Major and
havo it out nt onco," I bunt out.
And I saw him accordingly, and told
him tho wholo Btory, humbly apologiz
ing for daring to ask for his daughter's

'luck' in this way?"
"I don't know, sir," I answered dole
fully, "Ho goes about more and makes

"Whllo you stick nt homo and work.
Is that It?" he asked.
"Well," I relumed, "I try my best.
You see, I havo nothing else to rely on
or hopo for llko Charley. It's his luck
"However," said the Major, "I havo
been told you get your pictures hung,
nnd sell them, which Is more than ho
does. Is that luck, too?"
To this I made no reply. I could not
seo Its rclovancy.
"Now, look hero, Jack Wlburn," tho
Major went on. "I knew you wero not
Charley Wlburn." (I looked up In wir
prlso), "Mllly told mo; and I havo mado
certain Inquiries of my own, and I hnvo
something to toll you. The lato Alox

and intlmato friend of mine, nnd had
long ago set his heart upon Milly's mar

citedly, but ho waved his hand to me,
as a sign to bo quiet), "but he was de
termined that, If it camo about at all,
it should be spontaneous, and not
through any compulsion or unworthy
motive. But In that will you heard

thing you did not hear It was mixed
up In nnothor matter; but It comes to
this: thnt If Mllly marrlod 'his nephow'
ho and sho wero to have a certain sum
between thorn to begin housekeeping,
r hnvo consulted Mr. Parchly upon this
matter, and ho agrees with mo that, as
j Charley's nnmo is not expressly men

the funeral of his poor old uncle, who
had been so kindly disposed to him, If
Mllly likes you well enough to have

entitled to tho sum set aside as if Mas
tor Charley had married her, and I am
sure I shall not object to the situation.
In tho will tho only condition is that
Mllly shall marry 'his nephow, and, of
course, you are as much his nephew as
Charley is. Therefore I leave It with
Mllly; If sho says 'yes,' I say the samo,

No need to tell tho Joy with which I
heard the unexpected news, or tho hear

said; but I had not gone far when lie
called me back.
"You don't ask how much you will

"What matter, sir, since you think it
enough?" 1 answored.
"How much Is it, then?" I asked.
"Fifty thousand pounds," said tho
Major. And this Is what Charley loat

idea that a man who works hard must
eat rich food. Threo-quartors of a
pound of beef, costing 10 cents, one
quart of milk, costing 5 cents, and live
ounces of wheat, costing three-quarters
of a cent, are equal in nourishing ma

In your issue of April 15 Charley
Ramsey of Hardin County, Ohio, asks
If any of tho readers of the Review can
tell him anything about the BlackLang
shnns. Mr. Ramsey In tho latter part
of his request for Information states
that ho would llko to know what tho
writers on poultry subjects think of
them. As we do not pretend to bo n
writer on poultry subjects perhaps any
thing we might say would have no In
fluence with tho gentleman. However,
as wo havo been a breeder of this splen
did fowl for a numbor of years wo will
glvo our opinion and let It go for what
It Is worth. The Langshan is a dis
tinct breed (no mako up), coming origi
nally from Chinese Tartary. The plum
age should be black, not a dull black,
but glistening black, with reflections of
green. The legs and bottom of tho feet
should Bhow a pink color no yellow.
Tho legs should bo feathered, but not
so heavily as the cochins. Weight
should be, cocks, 8 to 9V lbs.; henB, 7
to 8V. In disposition they are very
gentle, easily confined, and so far as
my experienco has gone, tho best of all
winter layers. Thero aro two distinct
types. The low, heavily-bodied and tho
tall, majestic appearing, which one can
not see without saying, "Blood will
tell." As sitters and mothers tho hens
are first-class. As a tablo fowl I don't
think they are excelled by any other
breed. In ssying this I know the con
sensus of opinion is against me. Still
we deny that the color of the skin has
anything to do with the eating qualities
of a bird.

Vront In Leghorn.
I have been keoplng poultry for the
last fourteen years, both hens and tur
keys. I have quito a number of breeds,
but think there is more profit in the
Leghorn breeeds than In any others.
My fowls have a warm house In the win
ter and freo range In the yard all day.
I feed plenty of corn in winter, and
when the ground Is bare I throw out
some oatB and wheat as a change We
always sell at homo and never run risk '
of shipping. Wc do not get as many
eggs in winter ns in summor, but get
quito a per cent of them during the
winter. We seldom lose fowls from lice
or disease, but loso moro from hawks
than in nny other way. Wo keep a
fow of tho laigo breeds for tho purposo
of hatching. Ws generally let them
run at largo aftor a few days ns wo
think they do hotter. I havo never
tried doctoring hens but have turkeys.
I tried several remedies for dysentery,
but nothing did nny good till I tried
camphor. It cured them. I think thero
is no fowl I ever handled that will pro
duce moro eggs than the Leghorn. They
also maturo very quickly. For a heavy
fowl tho Plymouth Rock matures early.
I do not make poultry raising my solo
occupation. I raise what I can In the
poultry lino and attend to my other
business. I raise eighty to one hun
dred chickens In a year and thirty-five
turkoys, and besides I sell as many
eggs a3 my neighbors do.
Mrs. Robert Dinning.
It costs at least one-third more to
produco a pound of pork after the first
year than before. If a pig docs not pay
a rroflt by the time it is ten months old
it will hardly do so. after it passes that
ago. oYung pork Is not only the best
and cheapest, but brings tho highest
price in tho market. With n majority
of our farmers tho hog pays tho grocer,
tho physician, tho taxes, tho interest,
clothes tho family and practically sup
plies tho table with meat. With all
young stock it is an important item to
securo a good growth from tho start.
It is easier and moro economical to
keep an animal growing than to allow
It to becomo stunted and then attempt
to feed up into a good condition. It
is a sure way to have diseases among
the hogs when they must rely upon slop
as drinking water. They require pure
water tho same as do other animals,
and when deprived of It will not thrive.

Wo havo been keeping poultry for
eight years. During that tlmo we have
had the Wyandottes, Plymouth Rock,
Brown Leghorns, Langshans and Black
Spanish. For general purposes the
Wyandottes are best, for laying, the
Red Caps. I feed principally corn.
wheat and oats. In disposing of our
eggs wo havo always sold to a peddler
who pays from 8 to 25 cents per dozen.
Wo obtain most of our eggs during the
winter. Wo have lost a good many
birds from diseases and some from
prowling animals. When wo first began
raising broods we had good success but
the longer wo keep In tho business the
poorer success wc have. Wo havo also
tried doctoring fowls and havo used
from twenty to thirty remedies, but
none of them proved of any value.
White Leghorn and Plymouth Itnckfl.
I have bred tho Plymouth Rocks,
Whlto Leghorns, Black Spanish,
Brabma and Wyandottes, but I llko the
Whlto Leghorns and Plymouth Rocka

paper over that and over that siding
and then three coats of paint In the
summer thoy pick up nearly their own

corn, oats, wheat and cooked veg
etables. Wo sell our eggs to parties

Dairy Form. There seems to bo an
inclination to scoff at what Is called
dairy form. But all experience goes
to show that dairy form is a sure In
dex of the character of a milk cow.
There are two points that stand out
prominently and that should not be
lost sight of In selecting a dairy cow.
Tho first of these is a big paunch; the
second is a concave thigh. Tho latter
denotes lack of ability to lay on flesh.
Tho former tells us that tho cow Is a
great consumer. Then tho rest Is plain;
is she cats a great deal and docs not
turn It Into flesh and fat, sho must
needs turn It Into milk. "We doubt If
this rule ever falls.

"Tho way some mon are managed is
queer sometimes," the manager of a
big concern remarked to an acquaint
ance who had dropped into the oftle
according to tho New Y rk Herald. "I
havo never had any difficulty in Hi
nging mon and getting tho pioper
amount of work out of them, and I
think I have somo executive ability,
but I doubt whether I could manage a
gang of workmen on the river front
and I think that if I wore a workman I
would not bo managed as I have seen
men managed. I happened to be nenr
one of the dry do'eks during tho shift
ing of an old propeller from tho dock
to the shore. It wasn't what any ono
would call an expert Job, but if you
had seen and heard the foreman of tho
gang of workmen you would havo
thought ho was moving a battleship.
The propeller had been removed from
the hull In the dock and a now one was
to bo put in its place. Planks had
been placed over the space between
tho dock and tho shore and all that
tho men had to do besides pulling was
to be careful that tho propeller should
n't roll off Into the water. They had
strong tackle and long rollers, and
after they had stretched and fastened
the tackle it was an easy Job. The
foreman directed every movement and
the way he bossed tho men was amaz
ing, but they didn't seem to mind It.
Swear? Well, you ought to have heard
him or perhaps you ought not to have
heard him. If anything slipped a Uttlo
bit he sworo and 1 something didn't
move Just right he swore. He would
tell ono man to do something and an
instant afterward ho would undo it
himself, swearing all the while.
Finally, they moved the mass of Iron
to tho ends of the planks and began to
pull It up the incline. The foreman
acted as If he were in hot water nil
tho time, and it was a wonder that ho
didn't fall overboard Somo of the
men went ashore and hauled on tho
tackle, and two of them attended to
the rollers. The thing was heavy and
it had to bo moved slowly. 'Pull there!
What th 'ell you doing? Going to
sleep? Hold on! Now! Pull! Once
more! Hold on! What's the matter
with yer? Hold fast, I sny! Here, you,
shift that roller! Not that way!
Gimme that! Now! Easy! Once more!'
I havo left out the cuss words, but
perhaps you have somo notion of how
he went on. I watched the men to sec
how they took that kind of treatment.
Not one of them said a word during
the half-hour that I stood there. They
were not foreigners and they were not
stupid. In fact, I thought any ono of
them was tho equal of the foreman In

A well-known writer and render of
books for a publishing firm lately ven
tured on tho statement that ho thought
thero wero probably 1,000 clever young
women In our country who wero quite
able to tarn out the ordinary and most
readable English novel of the period,
but, as to those books being "litera
ture," that was a very different ques
tion. A publisher recently told mo
that he received so many offers of vol
umes of verso and novels from begin
nersmostly young glrl3 that he
would require to keep a special "reader"
If they had all to be examined with
care. It was only possible to glance at
most of them. In the same connec
tion I may quote a sentence which Ten
nyson once wrote: "I receive a stanza
of vorso sent to mo for every live min

The Greatest riedical Discovery
of the Age.
DONALD KENNEDY, OF ROXBURY, MASS.,
Has discovered in one of our common
pasture weeds a remedy that cures every
kind of Humor, from the worst Scrofula
down to a common Pimple.
He has tried it in over eleven hundred
cases, and never failed except in two cases
(both thunder humor). He has now in his
possession over two hundred certificates
of its value, all within twenty miles of
Boston. SjiuI postal card for book.
A benslit is always experienced from
the first bottle, and a perfect cure is war
ranted when the right quantity is taken.
When the lungs are aiVected it causes
shooting pains, like needles passing
through them; the same with the Liver
or Bowels. Tnis is caused by the ducts
being stopped, and always disappears in a
week after taking it. Read the label.
If the stomach is foul or bilious it will
cause squeamish feelings at first.
No change of diet ever necessary. Kit
the best you ca.i get, and enough of it
Dose, one tablespoonful in water af two
