some time, snce June, 1906, In fact, Mr.
Forlli has been paying fairly strict atten-
' t(on to Miss Tlo. Jt' la widely known In. the
village thai he "would have proposed to
-Mlsa Plo long ago If he had not been so

P asked Miss Plo If she would be hla wife.

that he was not engaged anj did not pro-

Me planted sweet pesa and nasturtiums,
pansles, poppies and evtn the old-fashioned
phlox In every spot of earth to be
found In their huge backyard.
"I've done a good day's work," announced
the triumphant gardener over a cold Sun
"Indeed you have, dear." smiled the
Amateur Wife. "You've been almost as
busy as I'll be tomorrow choosing my new.
spring bonnet. I'm going In on your train,
you know. How long do you think it will
be before the seeds come up?" '
"Oh. not long," the Tost Graduate Hus
band answered, loftily. "A few days of
strong spring sunshine such aa we had to
day should bring them aVive ground. It
louks as if tomorrow would be such an
other brlKht, warm day." '
Then they fell to pleasant planning of
what they would do with all their flowejs.
"We'll have ever so many more than We
can use," said the Ametaur Wife.
"Of course," agreed Her Husband, "but
we ran give the surplus to our neighbors,
or send them to the hospitals." '
"Yes, that's a beautiful Idea," Ilia Wife

were not Involved in any way, who had
only the most friendly Interest In the wel
fare of both and who felt perfectly free' to
act. The Royal Knights paaaed a resolu
tion of censure upon Mr. Forth and two
ministers preached sermons In which they
discussed the case, without, of course, men
tioning any names. Mr. Forth waa made
to feel the sting of his conduct by hla as
sociates. An overwhelming moral pressure
was brought to bear on the "young man,"
Meanwhile Miss Plo went to visit an aunt
It would have been a pity If the young
man had been coerced Into marrying Miss
Plo without loving her. In- a'Bhort time,
however, ha. came to love her, her absence
no doubt conducing to this change. He
went over to her aunt's In Connecticut and
proposed a second tlnie. and the two were
married at once. Mr. Forth and his bride
will not live in Patchogne, Mr. Forth hav
ing auld that he hated the whole village.

rather enjoyed myself. I was 'Introduced
to a man who danced perfectly beautiful,
except for kicking occasionally. He
seemed to like me very much.
He was frightfully homely, but I looked
over his shoulder all the time we were
waltzing and forgot about his face. Me
was awfully nice, but, goodness, he did get
warm. 1 discovered to my horror that a
man named Biffin, who seemed to like nie
a good deal, too, was following ua around
and asking me to dance every minute. As
I WAS ON
he had lamed me severely, besides tearing
a whole yard of my gown off, 1 got dread

The entire family from father down to
baby Jennie Is agreed that "there Isn't
anything that pat . can't do" and there
lsn'M. .If any doubt remains In the mind
of anyone upon this point this tale will no
doubt dispel It. writes Anna M. Dennlston
In the Chicago News.
- The cook Is a large, tall woman and aa
she stood before the new fangled kitchen
range she sighed. Then she sat down to
rest and rolled her weary hands In a mis
fit gingham apron. . "Dear me," she said,
"I wish I had an apron made fbr me by a
really, talented party as Misses has her
gowns made by a modiste. Then I think
I'll be looking like somebody while I'm at
my work and not as though I wore a meal
sack." The old-fashioned black cat rose
from a deep sleep by the new fangled
range and stretched her long body till It
looked twice as long a It really was, and
from a dark corner -where she bad laid
her round eyes shone out with their ellllp
tlcal centers shining like Jewels-and spoke.
The cook Jumped and said.
"Oh. am 1 dreaming or why. the cat's
Now maybe she was dreaming, hut cats
have been said to talk for ages past and
maybe they do. Anyhow this cat was as
wise as an owl. "Oh, cook," she said,
"here's an apron for you. I knew a tal
ented apron maker and she sent me this
apron for you. I've been sleeping on It,
but I weigh little and so I've not crumpled
It bady at all. It blew Into the window to
day, and well, here It Is!
"Sensible people," said the cat. "think
a good deal even about a kitchen apron.
Now. In kitchens we use fuur a great deal,
and that shows on black. You are liable
to a smirch of black from the stove, and
that shows on white. Why not split the
difference, cook, and look fresh and clean
and neat at the same time? All aprons that
blow Into the windows for people In other
words, the ones that come to them because
they, really belong to them in particular
ami not Just to anybody have a great
many specfdl features. Now, this one is
a black and w hite check. Just large enough
to look sheer and clean. It covers you all
up. It has elbow sleeves, because a cook
always rolls her sleeves up, anyhow, and
it has a higb round neck and Is fitted with
body seams like a dress. It haa strings
that ara all in one piece. M baa strings
to the apron at the aide seams, but they
emerge and pass over the back side pieces
and tie at the walnt line. A string like
this never comes off or breaks, because it
goes all the way around and Is wide enough
to be strong."
The cook put the apron on and in came
the flrft girl., "With all the different kinds
of housework I have to do," she aald, "I
need so. many different kinds of aprons
and nobody pays enough sttentlon lo
"That'a so," said (he rat
The first girl ecreamed.

went on, ."and sometimes you have to
