Mrs. Clarkson only smiled. She
was given to only smiling, anyway,
when her daughter set her head on
one side and let full some wise little
decision from her ever-busy brain.
So, as Miss Harriett leaned forward
and com placentl' surveyed the tips of
her new slippers as she said, "1 wish
that I had a lover; I'm sure that I
could manage one," the mothor took
another stitch in the dainty cambric
and remarked: "There is plenty of
time yet, Harriet mine."
Harriet started up in such haste
that the little chai was set violently
rocking. Going to the mantel, she
raised her pretty arms over her brown
head and contentedly studied the
fresh, 3'oung face in the mirror.
"Well," she laughed softly in the
midst of a faint yawn, "I'm dread
fully anxious for him to come. I'm
tired of this do-nothing life!"
"Let him come when he may, and
let us pray that he come in joy and
peace," was the quiet rejoinder.
That had been less than a month
ago, and now Harriet stood before the
same mirror; but it was a different
face that the glass pictured now a
perplexed brow, a scornful lip, and
yet a mist of pity struggling to the
gentle graj' eyes. A schoolboy's note
was the cause of it ail alittle hastily
scrawled note, but hot with an un
trained passion. And its frank de
spair was what hurt her most-
I know that 3011 cannot forgive me,
but I can't keep from it. I have
tried, but I am not strong enough to
beat it back. It is burning me up,
Harriet, even if I am a boy. I think
that this will make a man of me. At
leasts it will put a man's heart in me.
Harriet read it over and over, and
each time there rose before her a
vision of an honest young face and
tears lying in the eyes hardly dry as
jet from the grief over the lost ball.
Mrs. Clarkson said never a word, for
she knew that the confession would
come in good time. At last Harriet
tossed her the note, and, throwing
herself on the couch, she buried her
face in the soft pillows and sobbed.
'Oh, why did I ever want a lover?
And why did he do it? I knew that
he liked me, but I never dreamed of
his loving me."
Mrs. Clarkson read the poor little
note with a sigh; then, drawing the
brown head to her shoulder, she said:
"I, too, am sorry from the bottom of
my heart Hut he and you are only
the instruments of fate. Every boy
some time in his boyhood looses his
heart to a woman older than himself.
It is his first love and his first great
sorrow. It docs put a man's heart in
him. Hut he gets over it that is,
the sting is gone but he always re
members it, for the first love is the
sweetest. That is your first lover
and he has not come in joy and peace.
Be a woman and deal gentlv with
Harriet dried her eyes as she went
to her desk. But womanhood seemed
to have suddenly opened with her,
and she was surprised at her own gen
tleness. Women are both womanly
strong and womanly weak, and the
tender, almost motherly note that
she wrote in reply was an example of
the first, while the big, round tear
which splashed unexpectedly on the
address was only a betrayal of the
And so Harriet, in her 20th year,
cried over her first lover and sent him
Four years went by. The curls had
become a little more controllable, and
a sweet dignity had begun to soften,
the old-time girlish joys. It was the
day before her graduation, as she was
hurrying through the hall on her way
to the library, when Prof. Palmer ap
peared before her. A little paroxysm
of pain seemed to go over his sweet,
old face, as he hesitated. A puzzled
light gleamed in Harriet's eyes, for
she did not understand why his face
"Miss Clarkson," he at last said,
"if you have time I should like to sec
you in my office a moment."
She followed him wonderingly, and
yet half in dread, but it was not till
he had held open the door for her to
pass, in thatstatety, clegautold style
of his, that he said:
"I fear it is wrong, but I cannot
help it. I cannot let you go away
without telling you that I love you.
I know that I am selfish, but I am
not so old after all only G3." And
unconsciously a deep pleading crept
into his soft, old voice, and his tremb
ling hands clasped.
Again a mighty pity filled her heart
How she loved the kind, o d man,
with his handsome head and wide
opening heart! And yet, not at all
as a husband, but as an instructor,
an advisor,, a friend, whose gentle
concern had done so much toward
making her collegelife a success. Her
lips trembled as she faltered:
"Dr. Palmer, I am truly sorry, I
cannot be thankful enough, either,
for I am not worthy of such a rich
love as yours. But I shall be frank.
I do not love you and I never can love
you as you wish."
He sun into a chair at his desk,
while already a calm resignation had
begun to steal'over his features.
"I see, you are right It was wicked
for a man of my age to wish to pos
.sess so young and beautiful a woman
Harriet remonstrated at this, but
he only said:
"2ib, go now, and forgive the weak
ness of an old man."
His head fell forward on his arms,
and Harriet waited only long enough
to reverently press her lips .to th
snowy hair. Then she glided swiftly
J out, with her hands pressed tightly to
her throbbing temples, murmuring:
"I once thought that it was a
woman's hour of triumph when a man
told her of his love."
So Harriet wept over her second
love and turned from him.
nowever, no one dreamed how her
heart ached as she was saying good-
by to a group of schoolmates, when
the handsome young Grant Conway
took her hand, with, the same case
and pure friendliness nothing more,
nothing less as the rest A trav
eling vail hid a very pale, tear
stained face as the train drew away
from the little college town, but 24 is
an age at which a woman is strong,
and none of them guessed.
They marveled, though, as two,
three years stole by, and still she held
all men back. It was her fault en
tirely that she was not married, for
her quiet sweetness had a ce-tam air
of guarding about it which barred
them from the critical point.
Twenty-seven! Her birthday to
morrow, and 27! She tried to smileas
she leaned toward her mirror and
noted the gray hairs beginning to be
hinted over her temples, hut some
way she found instead that th3
whole image was suddenly blurred.
Turning, she dropped on her knees
and buried her head in her pillows.
There it was ail thought over the
boy and the old man and the others,
noble and true men, too, who might
have loved her if she had let them.
She did not choose a lonely existence;
on the contrarj', she shuddered at the
narrow, one-sidded life that she was
living. But still there rose before
her that handsome, proud face which
she loved better than all the world,
and she could not forget it. She
had seen him twice since they had
left school, and he had been grace
fully pleasant with her, but then he
was just as cordial with some of his
other old-time friends, and his open,
frank attention made poor Harriet's
heart bleed more than cold indiffer
ence would have done.
Why did she cherish such an empty
longing? Why could she not forget
as did the boy, whose three romping
sons she had fondled the other day?
Why, yes, why could not she even be
like dear Dr. Palmer, whose grave
had grown all sweet with fresh grasses
anr white pansies that very spring?
And as she murmured over again the
little prayer whose pure simplicity
shc had never outgrown, her "Now
I lay mc down to sleep," became al
most a pleading for the sleep which
blesses us forever and forever.
The next day passed uneventfully;
the usual amount of presents and
well-wishes, but still its sadness tilled
her heart to overflowing. Life had
become solely serious to her would it
ever become solety useless?
It was after 9, and fortunately the
last caller had left early, when Nora
appeared at the door and muttered,
as was her custom, an unintelligible
name. Harriet turned mechanically,
for she was weary, but the form ad
vancing from the hall made her catch
her breath. How handsome he was!
But she quickly recovered herself,
and tried to smile as she held out her
"I'm glad to sec you, Mr. Conway."
"Yes, thank you, Harriet"
Harriet! His air of confidence
startled her and yet overpowered her.
So, when he went on, calmly holding
her hand with a gentle though not
passionate pressure, she could only
"Harriet, I have come for you at
last. Has the waiting been long?"
Conic for her? She could only
tremble, at which he smiled quietly,
and calmly continued:
"I could not speak to you sooner,
for I had not my life settled. Now I
am certain as to my future and I have
come for you."
is'ot a word about love, not a ques
tion, not a sign of fear on his part!
And this was the way that she was
to be wooed she whom all the en
treaties and avowals of youth and age
could not affect Yet she wavored.
She was angry witli her pride because
it did not come to her aid, and yet
she could not even withdraw her
hand. He saw, he evidently under
stood, for he quietly took her other
hand, hanging passively at her side,
and smilingly repeated:
"I have come for you, Harriet."
What should she do? Or 'better,
what could she do? Nothing but
stand there till her lips began to
quiver and the tears welled up in her
searching gray eyes. Then the man
of the world this man who knew so
well his power bent down and kissed
once her upturned face and laughed:
"There, Harriet, don't cry. It's
only a man who has come for his
Even the caress, though, like all his
actions, the quintessence of graceful
ness, only half fed the starved heart
The long, lonely years of loving and
longing won at last, and she bowed
her head and sobbed.
"Don't you love me even a little9"
Then he gathered her up in his
arms and said in a low, hurt tone:
"Did you think that I could ever
marry a woman whom I did not love
more than all else of this life?"
Thus the last lover had come, the
least passionate, the one who had
caused the most sorrow, and the one
who had filled her past years with
bitter longing. And this was the
one of them all that she chose. But
then, women are mysteries, and may
be to no one so much as to them
selves. Keeping- Husband m Lever.
During a discussion relating to the
management of busbands, Mrs. Yard
Icy, a New York literary woman, said
that one great danger to martial
happiness arose from seeking outside
sympathy when the charms of ro
mance, poetry and sentiment found
the dead level of reality. "The
troubles of married people," she said,
"should be guarded as sacred secrets,
for then the differences are more
easily adjusted and harmony may be
restored. One great cause for the
turmoil is the -money relation. An
other is that. a man in his friction
with the world forgets how wearing
are the small irritations of life. He
is tired and does not wish to listen to
the uninteresting details of a woman's
"The wife grows still and preoccu
pied and dull, which furnishes him
with an excuse for neglecting her,
so they drift away from each other.
A woman should never allow herself
to grow dull and uninteresting if she
would keep her husband a lover. It
she would preserve the romance of the
courting time she must be as enter
taining and anxious to please as in
the days of the wooing."

The Cattle Industry.
' There are very few farms in our
whole country where the cattle in
dustry may not profitably be made to
supplement the cultivation of crops.
If the products of the soil arc con
verted into beef, milk, wool, pork,
etc, by intelligently feeding them
out to good stock, the farmer may
calculate in getting the ultimate
value that is contained in them.
When sold from the farm the pro
ducts pass through the hands of vari
ous dealers and manufacturers, each
of whom procures some profit By
feeding the farmer turns manufac

saves one important clement of va'uc

The market reports quote light
hogs about one-half cent higher than
heavy hogs. By light hogs arc
meant those weighing less than 200
pounds when dressed and by heavy
ones, 200 pounds and over. The ex
periment stations have very clearly
shown that the heavier a ho; weighs
the more it costs for every pound of
gain. The Massachusetts experiment
station, in a series of experiments ex
tending over five years, found that
New England farmers cannot make
money by raising pork at Gcdead
weight with pigs weighing over 175
or 180 pounds when cresscd. The ex
perience of hundreds of practical
fanners has been the same. Yet
thousands of farmers persist in rais
ing 300 and 400-pound hogs. They
know that every piund of gain over
200 pounds costs all or more than it
brings in, yet they persist in feeding
their heavy hogs. At a recent insti
tute a farmer asked the expert who
gave an address on feeding swine, if
there was any money feeding 80-ccnt
torn to a hog weighing over 200
pounds. He said that he could raise
his hogs to 200 pounds all right, hut
in getting them from there to 400
pounds he lost money. Of course he
did and he knew it, yet the habit of
feeding to this weight was so fixed
that he would not change. The
farmer will feed his 400-pound hogs
until he dies, but his sons have cither
left the farm disgusted with it, or
else go in for making money by new
methods when they get in charge.

Some extended trials have been

Poultry ou the Farm.
Most farmers consider poultry on
the farm more of a nuisance than a
benefit and only tolerate fowls on the
farm because the old women like to
have them around, writes Aunt
Betsy, in "Farmer and Breeder.'

fact that the good house-wife and her
chickens supply most of the neces

any one that lives on a farm knows
that there are times when it is ditli

eggs and poultry will always bring

gressive farmers who have discovered
and will acknowledge that poultry is
of great value on the farm, and every
year we find a few more going into
the business and trying to "grade
up," as they call it by having a few
thoroughbred roosters. We And a

the farmer can get with a little
trouble generally on his own farm,

Perhaps your flock of poultry
needs new fresh blood for its invigor
ation. If so the sooner the matter h
attended to the better. A good
male bird has considerable value and
therefore it is folly to expect to ob
tain such, save by the payment of a
good price. A real good fowl is
cheaper at $5.00 than a poor one is
at 75 cents or $1.00.
Aksokhents are of great value to
the poultry house. Dry loam, sniuck,
coal ashes, eta, arc splendid for
"taking in" not only moisture and
dampness, but also the various
noxious gasses, such as ammonia and
carbonic acid gas, which arc always
present in greater or lesser quanti
ties. A pure dry atmosphere is es
sential to health.

often no little part of the profit of
country and farm life consists. It is
rather disheartening for the city resi
dent who goes into the country dur
ing summer for fresh air and the fresh
home-grown small fruits and garden
vegetables to look into back yards
and find tin cans carelessly thrown
away, which show that even for such
common table luxuries as tomatoes,
green corn, and often green peas, the
farmer and his family have nothing
better for him than he could himself
buy at the retail grocery. If farmers
wish to attract other men to their
business, as it is clearly their interest
to do, they must in every way make
farm life as pleasant and enjoyable as
possible. Labor-saving machinery
enables the farmer to take life easier
if he will. He complains that low
prices for staple crops take off all his
profit. Grow less of these crops then,
and devote a larger share of time to
fruit, especially the small fruits, and
to garden vegetables. So soon as the
farmer grows enough of all kinds of
vegetables for table use in their sea
son, he has procured luxuries that
only wealthy men can afford. As he
thinks over what he would have been
obliged to pay for such tabic delica
cies, the harder lines of his life fade
away. It seems worth while to live
on a farm, and when he gets to feel
ing this way it is ten to one that he
falls into the halJit of marketing sur
plus he docs not need, and thus after
a few years develops into market
gardening the natural way. First
make a garden that will supply your
tibic. with all garden delicacies, and
if there is a surplus it will be sure of
a profitable market American Culti
vator. 3 annrii's; rearing; Apple Trees.
It is generally conceded that bear
ing apple trees need manure. But if
a tree that has been in blossom is
manured some year when no blossoms
are formed, its growth is often so
stimulated that it takes a year or
two for it to get into bearing again.
At this time of year it is easy to
notice by the buds what apple trees
will be in bearing this year. Manur
ing these cannot be a mistake, as t:e
tertilizer wi 1 mostly go to perfect 'Ve
fruit, 3'et leaving energy enougr in
many kinds of apples to form the
buds for a fruit crop the following

flleted with Headache.
It's fanny the different ways men and
women have hoadaches. A woman has
a headache end she walks around the
house with it wrapped in a handkerchief
dipped In bay rum, and sho scolds the
servants, administers punishment to tho
child that don't need it, and wonders
what In the world she ever got rrarrled
for, and wishes she were dead, and then
has a enp of tea about every three-quartan
el an hour. She says she is letting

When a man gets a headache ho comes
home and announces that he is going to
die,- and then he goes to bed, has the
doctor sent for, takes whatever he gives
him, groans, and makes a great time
generally, gets the sympathy of the en
tire household, and tho day after to
morrow is qulto well and ready to go
down town and tell how near ho came
to dying, what a close call he had, and
how only the skill of the doctor and tho
nursing of his wife saved him. Now tho
man's way is decidedly the best. Ho
gets rid of the cause of tho headache,
and as tho entire household has been
moaning, "Poor papa!" ho has their
sympathy. Tho woman just lets the
headache go away, irritates and upsets
everybody, and it is certain that it will
come back another day.
Stanch ships strike and ionoder. tho fierce
winds and mountainous waves sweep nob e
mariners' 'hearts ot oak to snip wreck and to
death, yet that does not prevent tho labborllest
landsman from risking his Ufa on tho s ormy
Atlantic in the role of tonrist or commercial
traveler. But If he shall reach his destination
safely he will scarcely hare escaped some of the
qnalms of sea sickness, unless ho takes with
him Hostettcr's Stomach Bitters, that inimit
able speciflo for nausea. Bad water on long
trips is a threat to tbo voyager, bat this may
be derrived in a great measure of its disordering
effects upon tho stomach, bowels and liver by
tbe Bitters. Again' t the prejudicial effects of
malaria, bad diet, fatigue and exposure it is also
afllcacious. It avrrts, moreover, rheumatism
and kidney complaints. Don't travel on sea or
land without it.

Accord'ng to a French traveler, the

that the natives can carry on conversa

noise is produced by placing two fingers
