COUNTESS OK BARONESS.
There was no other method of
soiling the problem than putting it
down as a final disappearance. When
a man has , been absent over ten
years and when tbe last tidings re
ceived from him come from the cen
ter of Africa, v and those fully two
years ago, he cannot expect his
friends to regret him eternally. The
lovely Baroness of Terrehaute bad
shed many tears over her lost hus
band. He had been a bad fellow, a
gambler and a drunkard. Pretty
Mary bad imagined one day that she
loved him, and as he was a baron
and she had plenty of money, she
Some time after the marriage, all
their wealth having disappeared, the
husband had been advised to leave
Paris, and go to the French colonies
in Africa, to learn to be wise, and, at
the same time, earn a fortune for
his wife and himself. The Baroness
Mary returned to her family, and to
tell the truth began to forget her
husband. He did not write to her
very often, and when once she re
mained a couple of years without re
ceiving a letter, everybody was of
opinion that he might be considered
Later on, when the parents in
formed their daughter of the decision
that had been taken in respect to
the death of their beloved son-in-law
(1), the Baroness was indeed sorely
afflicted. She would tell her friends
how devoted she had been to her hus
band, and what lovely eyes and beau
tiful mustache he had. Her friends
though gave her to understand, and
this was of some consolation to her,
that were her husband, Charles,
back again in Paris, he would
still be leading a bad
life and submitting her as before to
some harsh treatment. All this went
to mitigate her regrets in no small
degree. She just retained sufficient
to make herself perfectly interesting
to her friends. For after all, was not
her position particularly painful? She
was a widow beyond a doubt, but the
death of her husband was not a
patent fact. Nevertheless of all the
men who had accompanied the un
fortunate caravan in. the midst of
the dark continent none had re
turned. 6o the Baroness soon began to take
matters philosophically arid would
be wont to remark: 'Well, if I cry
for poor Charles until the end of my
days that won't make him return';
and finally she dried her pretty eyes.
Years flew by, but she remained a
handsome blonde, charming to every
one, beloved by all. More than once
her hand had been solicited. She
dared not accept another man and
entirely forget her unhappy past.
She was of a nervous disposition and
she imagined that the ghost or
shadow of poor Charles would appear
on the eve of her second marriage to
reproach her with her infidelity and
to stab her perhaps to the heart
It was of no avail for her friends
to remind her that her beauty would
not last forever and advise her to
make up her mind. She persisted in
continually putting it off.
However, at length the day ar
rived it always does arrive where
beautiful Mary felt that tbe ghost of
Charles was no longer a cause of fright
to her. So she gave every Kind of
encouragement to another Charles
whose name was Sydney. Needless
to say that Sydney, being a young
man of means and a Count into the!
bargain, the parents rejoiced at the
event. So when all the legal for
malities had been fulfilled, and this
time Charles finally interred, Count
Sydney de Beauregard led the
Baroness to the altar, and when she
returned she looked lovelier than
ever. Baroness Mary of Terrehaute
has become Countess Mary of Beaure
gard. The Count and Countess led a most
happy married life.
One fine morning, or rather one
ugly morning, the Countess received
the unexpected visit of her brother-in-law,
or to speak more correctly, of
the brother-in-law of the late Charles.
His name was Julius Fremont.
Knowing his serious character the
Countess felt that there must be
something wrong, for never would
Julius make a visit at such an hour of
the day. The Countess directed her
man-servant to show him in the
drawing-room where she soon rejoined
him. 'Ah!" she said, "I am so
happy to see you, Julius, why don't
you sit down?"
But at the sight of Julius' awful
look she soon saw that something
serious must be, the matter. "Ah!
dear me, what can it be!" she could
not refrain from exclaiming. With
out replying to her question, Julius
"Tour husband is not in?"
"No. ah! he has met with an ac
cident!" And she began a nervous
"Upon my word of honor, I don't
know where he is," retorted Julius,
"but I have not come to see you
The Countess wiped her eyes and
brightened up a little.
"What Is the matter then?" she
asked. "Is your wife?
"No, no, we are all well, thank
Heaven. Now, Countess Mary, are
you strong?"- .
. "I, strong? No, I am not strong
at all, but why 'don't you speak out,
you are torturin? me."
And then Julius continued in a deep
"He has returned!"
"Who who?" implored Mary.
"O Heavens!" and the noor Countess
continued the nervous attack which
she had begnAv a few minutes pre
Ytoaalv "Now yoa he calm and listen to
me." But she could not refrain from
exclaiming, Sydney! Sydney!"
"Yes, you love hiiu, and you are
right-to love him. As to Charles, he
is not worth the rope to hang him
your tongue all w)ll
that'lt ts him?"
I .should say I was.
I followed him

Mary. "We are of the same opinion.

particularly painful. 1 .don't know

"As nobody will answer such a
question it is quite useless to ask it.
Be calm and wait for to-morrow at 10
sharp. I will come and fetch you.
Until then have courage."
When she was alone the unfortun
ate Countess Sydney or Baroness
Charles, for she really did not know
to which name she was entitled,
thought she had been dreaming. But
she soon' perceived she was wide
awake, the clock was about to strike
12 and Sydney would be coming in to
lunch. She, poor woman, would be
compelled to eat, she, a woman with
two husbands! And Julius, who
had ordered her to keep everything
The idea that she was going to be
heroic gave her courage, and when
Sydney came in he found no change
on her face.
The day was a long one, but, like
all other days, it came to an end.
After a sleepless night 10 o'clock
struck and Julius arrived.
T icy took a cab and drove to the
rue . -
The Countess had put on one of her
finest' dresses, for however dramatic'
the situation may have been she did
not wish her ex-husband to find her
changed so coquettish was she.
They soon arrived at their destina
tion. And after walking through a
passage and up a dark staircase they
came to a door upon which was in
scribed, "Terrehaute, Professor of
They rang the bell. The door was
opened by a dirty looking girl of about
fourteen years of age who wore patent
leather dancing shoes and was pealing
a potato. .
"Docs Monsieur de Terrahautc live
here?" inquired Julius.
"Mv father is out, but he will re
turn shortly," was the reply. "Will
j-ou step in, please."
"Her father, did you hear what she
said? the traitor!" whispered the
Countess in the cars of Julius. "Let
"No, we must remain," was the
The girl, after showing them in and
offering tbem chairs, disappeared.
The floor had a beautiful shine on it:
a pair of dancing shoes and some
chalk lie on the table, some engrav
ings were hanging from the walls and,
over the chimney was a man's photo.
"That's he," said Julius.
"He! Oh! what a change he used
to be good-looking."
"Yes. but the portrait is a bad one:
you will see him soon. Be calm, dear,
try and be calm."
The poor Countess was crying at
intervals and hiding her face in her
"It's dreadful and humiliating!"
"I admit that the situation is not
a happy one," replied the brother-in-law,
"and if it were proper to wish
for the death of our relatives and
But voices were heard in the ad
joining room. The professor of danc
ing had returned and could be heard
."Yes, all right; they have probably
come for some lessons. Give me my
best coat ! '
The door opened and an individual
came in. It was Charles, changed,
greatly changed, but recognizable.
. "Monsieur de Terrehaute," said the
"That is my name, sir," he rc-
plied with a smile.
"Monster !" ejaculated tne count
ess. "What is the meaning of -all this,
sir?" continued Juluis.
Charles, or the ghost of Charles,
listened to them in stupefaction, with
mouth wide open.
"For whom do you take me, sir?"
he Anally asked.
"For whom do I take you, wretch !
For yourself, for Charles !" exclaimed
"I Charles? my name is not Charles!
My name is Henry." m
"Yourname Henry?" they repeated
"Henry de Terrehaute?"
"Yes, nenryde Terrehaute! Charles
was my cousin. When I was ruined
I went to America, where I earned a
living by giving dancing lessons to
young ladies. So when I returned to
France I thought I could not do
better than continue the same busi
ness. Cousin Charles is lost or dead
During this short explanation the
Countess gazed about in wild astonish
ment. It was not Charles. Charles had
not returned. In her joy she took
Professor Henry's band and shook it
"Sir, I am very happy."
"If you wish for any lessons,
"No, sir, not I, but I have several
friends who have daughters and they
will be only too delighted, I am sure.
I vrill give them your address and I
will not forget you."
And as they left the dancing room.
Julius, who was a little .ashamed of
himself, could not refrain from say
ing: "You must admit though that the
name and the resemblance"
But the Countess was too happy to
At the foot of the staircase 'in the
passage she could no longer retain her
joy and the recollection of the danc
ing set her dancing too. Taking
hold of Julius she waltzed with him
right down the passage to the street.
This was the last time she ever
thought of poor Charles.

business is one so
full of detail that
if the little
things are not
looked after, even
the largest crops
and best prices
will not save from
loss. It Is the
lack of the close
attention to de
tails that farming requires that has
caused the failure of schemes of
bonanza farming. What Is done by
hired help, not under personal super
vision of the employer's eye, is apt to.
do only eye service. It is as true
practically as when first uttered, that
the hireling fleeth because he is a
hireling. Tho workman in any oc
cupation who always makes his em
ployer's interest his own is invaluable.
Yet if he would but regard it riphtly
that interest is identical with his.
The keen competition for intelligent,
reliable help insures it what it can
earn, for if one employer will not pay
for faithful service, another will.
It is therefore not likely that farm
wages will soon, if ever, materially
decline. The demand for young men
in city employments has for many
years taken the most active and en
terprising mors-than it will, we be
lieve, in the near future. Business
life in cities is precarious. Few mer
chants can go through life without a
failure at its middle or at the close.
The fact is becoming recognized that
equal executive ability on the farm
will, on the average, produce as much
wealth and more comfort than it can
In average business and commercial
city enterprises. Except in the item
of farm help, and possibly also in
that, the cost of getting farm work
done has declined, the aggregate ex
pense is greater, but it is or may be
offset by still larger results. One man
with improved machinery can do so
much more work that not only docs
he earn better pay, but something is
or ought to be left over for the farmer
if he does his part.
There is also great reduction in the
prices of most improved agricultural
machinery. As voous patents run
out the cost from tne manufacturers
will be greatly lessened. This is to a
greater extent than is thought true
now in machinery where there
is rightful competition . of firms
manufacturing under different pat
ents. Any one now can buy reap
ers, mowers, drills and cultivators
20 to 30 per cent, cheaper than was
charged for them a decade ago.
The greatest reduction of farm ex
penses, however, must be relative by
increasing amount and value of its
products. Bich and well-drained land
produces so much more than that in
poor condition as to give the farmer
who owns the best farm a great ad
vantage. He and his hired help may
work no harder, and possibly not so
many hours, but they accomplish
more, and thereby produce at less
cost.. This is the only practical way
to make farming pay. The man who
does not improve his farm, and waits
for a high price to Jielp out his poor
farming, will learn when the good
prices come that he has so little to
sell that it does not profit him much.
On the other hand, if he conducts his
basiness so as to produce large crops
these can usually be sold at some
profit in any condition of the market.

The Valaa or Kaellage. -'
' TheSIaryland agricultural experi
ment station reports the best method
of preserving forage and the,compara
tivc value of the same plant, harvest
ed and stored' in different' ways, form
oart of the general problem of forase
and feeding. The system of silos and
ensilage, is no longer an experiment.
Practical fanners and dairymen in all
parts of the country have demon
strated the direct profit and the inci
dental advantages of preserving a
portion of their forage crops in the
form of ensilage, so as to give their
animals, of all kinds, a fair propor
tion of succulent food, throughout
the year. Ensilage is found as profit
able for supplementing pasturage in
times of drought, as for giving stock
"a green bite" in the winter. Indian
corn is the favorite crop of ensilage,
the most productive, the ''easiest to
raise, and, all considered.v the best.
But clovers, the cow-pea and the soja
bean, make a more -nutritions article
of ensilage, and may be advantageous
ly mixed with corn, in the silo. Other
plants and waste, products, some un
palatable in other forms, make fairly
good ensilage. ,
Ensilage is no better food for stock
than good roots, but in nine case out
of ten, ensilage can be produced and
bandied easier and cheaper than
roots, and is just as good' for stock
food. A good many points regarding
silos and ensilage remain unknown or
uncertain. Consequently ensilage of
different plants is yearly made at the
Station, managed Jri different ways,
fed to different .classes of stock, in
various combinations, and the ob
servations made are;3uly recorded. -

The special demand for certain
classes of horses is or ought to be well
known by everybody, but judging
from the fact that so many scrubs are
yet bred is evidence enough, says the
Kuraland Stockman, that this de
mand Is either not known or not ap
preciated. There is a demand for
good horses of all breeds. The market
is not Overstocked in any direction
Whatever. The heavy draft horsed
are always in demand; the 1 Iambic
tonian sells readily enough; the
Morgan is always in demand; the
Coacher is not imported or bred
largely enough to satisfy the demand
for that class of horses. What then
shall we breed? From what we have
said the proper answer would seem to
be: "Breed anything but the scrubs."
There are horses at work in Chicago
that cost only from ten to forty
dollars; and they do the work at
which they are put. Some of them
are not very old horses either. But
they are scrubs to begin with and per
haps having been bred from defective
sires or dams have been good for noth
ing from the beginning. They are
not the kind of horses that the public
in general want. Looking over our
weekly horse sales it is not difficult to
see what kind of horses we ought to
breed if we want to make anything
from horse breeding. Ilorsesare like
all other kinds of stock in the matter
of profit, they must be the best to be
Feeding of Caws aad Calves.
Experiments at the Iowa Station
gave the following facts or indica
tions: Quality of milk so far as
measured by its percentage of fat was
changed by feed to a much greater
degree than was quantity. Two-
thirds of the increase in average gross
yield of butter fat was due to im
proved quality of the milk, and only
one-third to increased milk-flow. '
Corn is not a perfect milk ration.
Substitution of bran and oilmeal re
sult in increase of Quantity and qual
ity of milk. A ration of skim-milk
and ground flaxseed compares favor-'
ably with a new ration for young
calves. The larger gain came from
the whole milk but a part of it was
partly due to the individuality of the
calves and good results and a thrifty
growth were made on skim-niilk and
ground flaxseed. Thcskim-niilk calves
were interrupted less in growth by
weaning than the whole milk calves. J
A saving in value of butter fat alone
of $1.11 per month on each calf was
effected by substituting ground flax
seed. . I

A Nan far Winter EgC
A secret of winter egg production
is warm quarters for the fowls, writes
A. R. Stuyvesant, in Farm and
Home. A friend who always has
quantities of eggs when they bring1
35 cents to 40 cents per dozen, has a
novel place for his hens' bed room. It
is in the side of a haymow, which
keeps the birds warm all winter. To
take advantage of such accommoda
tions the space must be birilt in the
side of the hay before the hay is put
in. Built the size of a cord of wood,
4x4 and 8 feet long, it will nicely
.quarter twenty to twenty-five hens.
The room for fowls should Join the
mow on the south or west, and tbe
sleeping compartments open from it
under the hay as shown. This will
keep off all severe winds and dan
gerous drafts. The cut represents
the side of the room next the hay.
The two doors thrown open expose
the entire roosting room, which is
thus easily cleaned. Gauze covers an
aperture at the top of one door for
ventilation (A) warm nigMs and can
be closed tightly when it is cold and
windy. The main ventilator extends
nearly to the floor inside and above
the doors without (B). If one de
sires to have the hens lay beneath the
roosts in prepared boxes, the litrte
slide door (C) may be left open days
and the dark quarters will please the
fowls for this purpose.
