All these years my friend has worked and pinched and saved to get her boy through school with decent clothes and not too many economies before the rest of "the fellows." Now that he's graduated he wants to enter an architect's office. The architect wants the boy and the boy thinks he'll like the profession, and It won't be long. If all goes as it should go, befora the)boy la. earning a dollar or two, and soon Tie'll be helping tha mother who has helped htm so long. Good news Isn't it? But here comes tha mother's rich sister. She's a clever sister and a beautiful sis ter and a very well-to-do sister. All these" years she has let the boy's mother struggle on alone, tmt now that the boy is well grown and good-lobklng and prom ising, the rich sister of my friend says, "I will send him to college." And she wants the boy to visit her In tha city where the university is, and she says sha will get his clothes, pay his dues if ha la selected tor a good fraternity and do all the honors. "He can make his way In tha world," says my friend's rich sis ter, "and ha must be started right. No body can ever hope to be anything with out a college education." And my friend doesn't know what to do. The boye Says, "Whatever you fay, mother" and let It go at that, though It is easy to sea that ha Is no student and T . II Autumn in Town By CHESTER FIRKINS.

"I don't Ilka him to accept so much now." says my friend. "I hate to start my boy in life In debt to some one who has never paid the least attention to htm before. My sister is lonely, she wants some one to love her, and I don't believe that my son can do that exactly if she does send him to college, and yet what shall I sayT" I know what I would ssy. I would say, with all the politeness and all the sincere gratitude In the world. "No, thank you, sister. My boy is not ambitious socially ., he couldn't keep up with the college set after he leaves college; Nhe isn't the sort of boy that really cares for study at all. and ha plays foot ball well enough -now, thank you. Besides, he really prefers base ball, he says it's here longer, and I don't think It Is starting right to take some one else's money right at the be ginning of life." I'd rather have my boy proud, Indepen dentstubborn. If you will than too grateful, too easy going, too used to ac cepting favors from any one. Least of all from a relative. I'd rather owe a thousand dollars to the worst dun on earth than to owe $50 to a relative. The dun will dun you and call it square; the relative will remember that money It you pay It back a thousand times and she'll want every dollar of It paid back in heart's blood, drop by drop, If she's anything like most relatlvea who do that kind of thing for their kin. "My boy's a free man now, I'd rather he stay tfhat way."" And I'd mean It, every word of It. There's one thing that is more important to the average man than all the education in all the books on earth, and that Is his own Independence and his own honest pride. . I'd rather my boy would never see the tnslde of a lecture room than to have him see It through the eyes of a parasite and a flatterer. I wonder if I'm wrong? f .

Crowd closer together, all you who oc cupy positions on the platform of Fame, and make room for a man who has proved ha Is superior to his sex; who Is so great In his achievements he Is almost a woman! Make way there, for Frederick Elllston Brsndt of St. Paul, Minnesota! There was held In St. Paul recently a state fair, to which, farmers brought hogs so fat they had lost all Taclal expression, prize calves, big pumpkins, horses with slender ankles and heavy tails and corn that grew high. The women were there with insane quilts, jelly of three colors In one i!'s, cakea of so many layers they lookcu like a band, stand preserves, dollies on which were em- broldered marvellous strawberries snd pansles, green grape pickles, hair wreaths under glass frames and squash pies. But move closer together, you who occupy position on the platform of Fame, for here Tomes Frederick Ellison Brsndt, a man who Invaded woman's domain and did her work better than she had ever done It. Hiding among the acres of em broidered roses and tulips, drawn work, hemstitched and Irish crochet, there was found a Hardanger embroidered lunch cloth five feet square, the work of a man. and ta It the committee pinned tha blue ribbon. ' And the women embroiderers of St Paul, who had aat back ao chesty and complacent, threw one big fit that made the walls of tha bazaar look like demonstration ef tooth soap. Frederick Elllston Brandt did it all himself, and he used ninety-three skeins of embroidery floas, and It didn't take him long; it was pick-up work, you know, and he worked at it In odd mo ments; and, yea. it was the first work ha had aver dona, and, no, ha Is not mar ried and has no wife to come forward with her photograph taken In a low necked dress and the claim that by her kindly encouragement aba made him greaL He climbed to tha platform of Fame supported and sustained alone by his embroidery needle.

Bir William Ramsay fixes upon ITS years aa the longest period that the known supplies sjaMiiqTeyr'CTat of coal can last. On of his critics underta k to then, unless there how that this should be extended to 400 years. But what matters ths precise time If there is a aura limit T Whether it cornea sooner or later, tha exhaustion of the coal supply will spall ruin unless In the meantime a substitute can be found. Bir William Ramsay himself suggests ' ths bare possibility thst tha needed substitute may be found In a radium. if. he says, tha 1,760 years which a ton of radium requires In order to evolve half the enormoua energy stored within It would be artificially cut down to thirty years, the power thus developed would be equal to that derived from the con c New York Bj SAM The modest violets are showing tnelr tender blue and fslry-llke faces alor.g the lanes and byways.

How charmingly ihsy match with a pair of flashing blus eyes or oontrast with tha roses that theue nipping days bring to the cheeka Of tha violet hunters. Modest violets. At 16 to $60 the bunch they must havn a oastlron nerve to look a man In the fiioa. Chestnuts ars again In season, and all signs point to a plentiful and varied crop. We should ssy that tha chances on chest nuts gathered nw are about even, with the odda stowing as tha season pro- greases. Chestnuttara art out In force during the days and svenlngs, and the pungent smoke from their smouldering fires Is caught ever and anon as a welcome whiff In the pervading odor of the product from Neighbor Rockefeller's refineries. Constsble Waldo and his hired men. as usual, are making thlnus lively and In teresting for the chestnut'.ers. When ens of the hired men appea-s the rhseinut ters scatter, and their lanterns flit arid dance over the roads like will o' the wisps. Bttll the exercise adds sent to the sport. We haven't heard from the gooeebone or our other neighborhood prognos tlcators, btit there are some signs that wa have noticed which point the way of the coming weather. Lysander John 1iT FRAXCE8 Lyasnder John Appleton, Kin Com-mlseloner-5neral disposes of msnv troublesome kin questions for others, but his authority is not recognised In his own family. Ha dec Idea tor an anxious public If a first cousin has any rights through the ties of kinship, and limits those rights to the m nlmum, but when his wife's cousins, seven decrees removed, appear with rlne trunks, be meekly gives up his bedroom and den (I. a-, tha room whera ha la supposed to do all his growl ing) and climbs the at airs to the attic, taking with Mm his many volumes on kin questions, all works of his active brain, and which are regarded as master pUoeti by his kln-rldden constituency. He has seven volumes for the control of wives and can't control his own ac cording to tha rules laid down In one ot them. Whatever Influence the kin com-mlaaloner-general has ovsr his wife Is galmid through circuitous route. Tbo following lnstanoe la related for the benefit of husbands whose atom, achs faint at the sight of the potatoes brought on the table meal after meal, elthrr- in half-washed lumps, or with out levins felt the potato masher. H Is the onl occasion when Lysander John gtU abtad if his wife. Waai he leajxis from the otmds oosa. kng fro is thst kltuhea that aha has taken Ota pcnaloee from tha fire ha sanriara J I.

Tha only difficulty Is to find tha way to accelerate the atomic disintegration. That problem, at present, presents a blank wall, which there seems to be no means of surmounting. But let It once be solved snd there sppeais to be no reason why the rate of acceleration should not be Indefinitely Increased, and radium or some cognate substance, be turned Into a source of mechanical energy, such as ths world has never dresmed of. Radium, It Is true, Is a very rare sub stnee, but this fact need not be regarded as fstal to the supposition that ranio- artlvltv mav some day be utilised as a source of power. Dr. Oustav le Bon be lieves thst he hs proved, and sir vwi llatn Ramsay also admits the possibility, thst all the chemical elements, wnen plsoed under proper conditions, may ex-, hlblt a similar tendency to change with evolution or energy. "If," says the great Englisn cnemisi, Am form of catalvser could be dls- covsred which would usefully increase their almost Inconceivably slow rate or change, then It is not too much to say that the whole future of our rice wouia be altered." Who will find this catalyster. and how soon? It is the fountain of youth for the world may tha Ponce de Leon of science be more successful thsn his buncaneerlng predecessor. Nature Notes SMALL, Jit. It Is no secret. A stroll along the Big Lane will find the actors always on the sunny side of the street. That Is the sign of a long, hard winter. A large quantity of malt In the ehapa of brown October is being put sway tall over tha community, but especially along the big roads. At ths Korty-second Street Country club several bsrrels are put away every day, and the boys laugh and sing at their work. It Is a curious thing that the harvest ing of brown ptcober should bring forth so much gayety. It la entirely dlffwont from the gathering of, say. the potato crop. But a group of harvesters norklnr together on brown October' sooner or later break Into song. That Is one reason why Maine will be sorry It went wet. Brother Jol tells us he has garnered his frljola beans snd the chile Is now in sesson. Joel also brought Into our com munity a Bohemian hop of the, early morning species, which Is best about the time the frost Is hatlierlng or the dew falling.

"Talk about you own worthless kin. why don't your" she will snap bark, bringing the potato masher down on tha potatoes with unusual vigor. "I haven't any aa worthless aa yours," the Kin Commissioner-General will re ply, and the potato masher comes down on the potatoes with all the weight of outraged wrath, and as he enumerate them the blowe come harder with even kin named, and her Ire growa, and she doesn't know her arm aches, and she mashee and nuxslica, pounding tho pota toes with a viciouaneaa that reduces them to the conslatracy of oream.
