Why Pbtntob % Are Large. '
The extremely. large size to which
' Otatoes Sometimes in the
grow west is
due to
causcs which
following are given by Rural New
Yorker : Potatoes thrive best in cool
Climates and in loose , loamy , rich ,
moist soils. Irrigation , properly practiced -
1 , furnishes the desired mechanical
conditjo8 and in rich soils brings into
' proper solution and consequent availability -
bility quantities of p'ant ' food which
the potato being grassfceder , fastens
Onto and expands itself accordingly.
L There is no magic about it , siIr1py rich
soils , intelligently cultivated and mdi-
ionsly watered.

literary autobiography in the February

A Mischievous Sprite.
Robin Goodfellow is the name given
in England to a spirit or fairy analogous -
gous to the Brownie of Scotland and
the Robin of Germany. During the
reign of Elizabeth his existence was
vei.y generally believed in and lie was
famous for his "mad , merry pranks. "
It was from the popular belief in this
fairy that Shakespeare got his - conception -
ception of Puck.
From the early ballads eoncrning
Robin Goodfellow , we learn that lie
was the son of Oberon , king of Fairy-
land. Rogucry and mirth were his
characteristics , and-one day he car-
ned his sportiveness to such excess
that he greatly displeased his mother.
She determined to whip Robin br his
misconduct , and told him so. This
made him very-angry and , to avoid
the whipping , he an away from
After wanderinr aimlcssly about
for some time Robin grew very tired
and sat dOVfl to rest. He was so a-
tigued that lie-soon fell asleep and in
hissleep he had a most wonderful
vision of faries. When he awoke.
great was his surprise to find a scroll
lying beside him which had evidently
been left there by his father. In
verses written in letters of gold the
scroll infoimed him that lie should
have anything he wished for , and also
the power of assuming various shapes.
He was cautioned , however , to harm
none but worthless people and was to
"love those that honest be , and help
them in necessity. "
Robin was very fond of disturbing
domestic peace , but he was believed
to be easily conciliated. If a bowl of
milk or curds were set out for him , he
would , about midnight , perform a
great many household duties for the
servants ; but if they forgot to give
him his milk , he would pinch their
noses , pull their ears and hair , skim
the milk and annoy them in many
One night lie went to a wedding
and was a very welcome guest because -
cause hn was going to play the "fid-
dle" for the wedding-party. But he
was so full of mischief that lie could
not resist the temptation to play
tricks on the company. First , he cx-
tinguished all the candles in the
roQm , and then he boxed the men's
ears and caused them to engage in a
general fight ; nor did the women escape -
cape , for he kissed the handsomest
ones and pinched those that lie did
not consider pretty enough to kiss.
When the candles were re-lighted
and order was restored , a great bowl
of posset was brought forth. It
looked very tempting and made
Robin's mouth Iairly water ,
"I must and will have that posset ! "

Fun for tbo Children.
Yes , you -can inake your own pigs
very easily , children , and they will
be so nice -and sweetand funny that
nobody can -object to your taking
them right into the .parlor with you.
The first requisite isa lemon. This
will cost about three -cents and you
can get it at any grocery store. You
must ask the man who sells it to you
to permit you to select one from the
basket. Take one with a long stem
or peak at one encL ,
When you get home Sent a. small
notch down in.the stem. , This will
be the pit's mouth and should be
colored red. ( Red nlc will do. ) After
his mouth has been properly cut Mr.
Pig should be laid square on his back
and four matches or small sticks of
wood should be sharply thrust
through the skin and well into the
lemon to serve for legs. The matches
or sticks should stand out an angle
so Mr. Pig won't fall over , and if he
is to be allo\ved. -sitdown put the
hind legs deep in.
Pigs like to sit down , and they
usually do after eating ; so it is just
as well to make your pig repose in
this comfortable mannr at the start.
: Now ask mamma for a couple of black
-pins to be put in above his nose for
piggy's sharp little eyes and whittle
out two car-shaped. pieces of thin
wood , dye them pink on the inside
with paint or red ink , and press them
in over the eyes , so they will "lop" or
hang a little. Now tie a piece of
grayish-brown string about the head
of a. pin and drive it. , head and all. in
through poor piggy's skin where his
tail belongs. You can' then cut the
string off to leave his pigshipwith a
tail of an inch or so in length.
It is really of little importance
where you keep this kind of a pig ,
and figs themselves don't seem to be
very particular where they are kept
ii they only have enough to eat.
YQU can make a small pen of one of
papa's cigar boxes , 1and I will show
you how to hangS the door and fasten
it so Mr. . Pig cai't gdt out UnICS3 you
open th gate for him.
The inside measurement of the box
5hould be three inches by three by J
rour inches , though -'some pigs like
arge pens , and a great deal depends ,
ilpon how often you let your pigs out. ,
Whenyouhavemade your pen take
tlirec pins and cut the heads off in
; uch a way asto leave a point , with
tn old pair of shears or a file , and
hien bend them carefully into a long1 ;
' -
; : -
slender "U" for staples. Now cut out
a piece from the cigar box cover as
long as the pen is wide and about an
inch wide itself , the grain of the wood
running with the length.
This is for the gate. Make a notch
in the center of one end for the
Now for hianing the gate , which is
the nicest part of the whole job , and
must be done very carefully. The
first thinr to do is to hammer down
the heads of two pins so they will
pass through the staples. When they.
are just right drive one into the
lower edge of the gate , close to the
opoosite end from the latch. If you
don't put it very near the edge the
will "bind" it ' .
gate won't open freely.
Nowput the other pin in the upper
edge , directly opposite the lower pin.
Then lay the house on its back , the
.open side up , . and place the gate in
the position you want it. The gate
should be about half an inch from
the bottom o th&pen so piggy can't
get under it. Now very carefully
drive two of your staples into the
edge of the box just above and below
the edges of the gate and over the
pins. Don't drive them too far at
first. Try the gate to see if it swings.
A curved pin makes a good hasp.
Cut the point off , so you will not
prick your fingers when you go to let
piggy out for a stroll in the garden.
Your pig and his pei are done.
Famous Itogrue Elephants.
The complete history of the rogue
elephants would make an interesting
chapter. They seem to have decided
to avenge man's wrongs against their
kind. Some years ago one rogue
actually took possession of a stretch
of country in India forty miles wUe
by 100 long , and in a business-like
way proceeded to demolish everything
in or about it. The animal rushed
into the villages , took huts upon its
tusks and tore them apart , or tossed
them until they fell in splinters. It
chased the people away or killed them
whenever it could , or standing by the
wrecked houses , it ate the grains and
This elephaRt seemed remarkably
intelligent. It entertained in particular -
lar , a grudge against the watchtowers -
towers or scaffolds. Whenever this
rogue saw one , lie would creep slyly ,
spring at it , push it to the ground ,
and kill its occupants.
A famous rogue elephant named
"Mandla" was owned by a rich man
near Jublulpore in central India.
Suddenly it began to develop the
characteristics of a "rogue , " and attacked -
tacked human beings wherever seen
It killed them so cruelly that it became -
came widely known as "the man-
eater. " He was finally destroyed by
an organized effort of English army

sion of a public road and attacked
every passer-by. Suddenly darting
from the jungle , it would rush up to
an ox-cart , seize the driver with its
trunk , and disappear. Repemted raids
of this kind so terrified the people that
a large tract of land was to all intents -
tents and purposes deserted ; but finally -
ally an English hunter determines to
rid the country of the rogue. By
careful inquiry he found that the dc-
phant always seized the driver , and if
there were two carts in company , it
chose the driver of the last. So he
arranged two ox-carts , putting a
dummy driver upon the second , while
upon the first was a stout bamboo
cage in vhich the hunter was to sit

and best wishes of the coin-
munity. The fatal district was
soon reached , and , about half way
down the road there came a crash- ! .
and time monstrous elephant , dark
and ugly , dashed upon the party.
Making direct for the last cart , with
a vicious sving of its trunk , it seized
on the dummy man and made off ,
receiving as it went a shot from the
cage. 'But the oxen , alarmed at the
uproar , ran away , leaving time road
and taking to the op.n country. Ihey
tipped the cart over , nearly killing time
caged driver and the English sports-
man. What the elephant thought when
it tore the dummy into shreds must be
imagined. Some months later , however -
ever , this rogue was driven away and
caught.-C. F. Holder in St. Nicholas

The Only Exception. -
Exchange : It is related of time Duck-
ess of Westminister that she put in her
guest chamber a curious Swiss clock ,
to which was attached a printed notice -
tice : "Please do not touch. " When
Mr. Jolly , the Canadian Liberal , visited
her grace he ventured to inquire the
reason for the prohibition. ' 'You are
the twentieth ziman who has asked time
question , " replied , the lady gleefully.
"Women , you know , are supposed to
be proverbially curious , and 1 put that
placard on the clock to test the same
weakness in men. and I am happy to
say I find them not a whit less curious
than women. I keep a list of all time
gentlemen who have asked me that
question you have just put , and there
has been only one exception among all
my guests who have occupied the room ,
and that was Mr. Fawcett , the late
postmaster general , and he , poor man ,
was blind. "
HOW I MADE 81.200 W
By not sowing Salzer's seeds ! That is
what a jolly farmer said as lie entered
our sanctum. flow is that ? Why ,
says he , Seizer's seeds not only grow
but they produce enormously. Had I
planted a few acres more of his oats ,
wheat , corn , potatoes , grass and clover
seeds , I would have had to double the
capacity of my barns ; that would have
cost me $1,200. It is a fact that if you
want bigrousing farm , grass and vegetable -
table crops , you must sow Salzer's seeds.
