r . , .r . . . Why Pbtntob % Are Large. ' The extremely. large size to which ' Otatoes Sometimes in the grow west is due to several causcs which among the following are given by Rural New Yorker : Potatoes thrive best in cool Climates and in loose , loamy , rich , moist soils. Irrigation , properly practiced - ticed 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.

'Zht itoguisli Son of tile King c.:1 Juceiz ot Fairyland-.t Lemon and Homo Toothpicks Make a Cnn nIn Pig-Snow Song-Piano I'Iayiug. 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 home 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 ways. 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 ! " said he ; to himself. Soiie quickly turnel himself into a bear. 'Of course , -when ; the men and women discovereda among them the-v forgot nil about the posset and ran for dear life. Robin. thus left alonesoonmade an end .of The posset , and went .away .without waiting for the money due iiim for playing the ' ' . " . 'fiddle.-P.hiladelpliia Times. . 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 stores. 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 officers. Another famous rogue took posses. 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 rifle in nand. , When a1 ! was ready , the two ox-carts started , one. day , followed. by the hopes 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.

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.
