Btarted to come to school. Then Tilda
had overtaken her, going across lots,
crying in the midst of a sandbur patch.
Her Btubby little shoes protected her
feet, but her dress was bristling with
the ugly burs that scratched the little
knees at every step. Barefooted Tilda
waded bravely to the little maid and
carried her to a place of safety from
the hateful cenchruB. From the mo
ment when they sat down together to
pull out the stinging burs they had been
fast friends. Tilda had watched Min
nie's progress with wide eyes. She had
sometimes forgotten her own lesson in
listening to the tiny little maid in the
blue dress who spelled long and longer
words bo well that Miss Jones patted
her, brown hair kindly. Tilda's hair
was almost white. Miss Jones never
Tilda would have been ery much sur
prised if anyone had done such a thing.
Perhaps her timid little blue eyed
mother caressed her sometimes, if she
had time. Perhaps her great burly
father did, when be was sober. I do '
not know. I only know that one day a
dreadful disgrace came to Tilda, some
thing that made her playmates stand
more aloof from her than ever, and that
made even little Minnie afraid to play
with her when the other children were
It was on a very warm day and at noon
Miss Jones had taken her book out under
the big cottonwood. Tilda was studying
her lesson at her desk as usual. That
night Hilda Holnoquist complained that
somebody had taken her apple, and
someone elee had missed a slice of gin
A thorough investigation was made,
but Tilda's frightened look3 bad already
told the story. Miss Jones had some
very decided ideas on the subject of
morality. She called Tilda to her desk
and delivered an impressive lecture on
the awful sin of stealing, while Tilda's
eyes grew wider and more frightend and
she shook her head saying, "I didn't,"
half under her breath. And Fred wrote
on his elate in great capitals, "Dow
shalt not steal," and held it up for Tilda
to contemplate. The ginger bread had
been his. But Minnie told her mother
the story that night and her little face
was very grave as she said, "1 tink Tilda
Tilda did not stand in the corner by
the dinner pails after that. Neither did
her thin face look many times from her
new corner by the water pail. Mies
Jones questioned the children about her.
"Tilda's fader gets drunk,'' they told
her "and Tilda and Karl must gader de

wretched family," Baid Mies Jones to
A few dayB afterward she heard
the children making an unusual
amount of noise away down the road that
ran by the field of corn belonging to
Tilda's father. "What is the matter?"
she asked of little Minnie who stood in
the doorway looking with a very grave
face down the road. "Dey are calling
to Tilda," said Minnie.
"Where is Tilda?"
"It is Tilda and Karl by de wagon.
Dey are picking de corn."
Miss Jones shrugged her shoulders
and returned to "Ina's Heart." Minnie
looked wistfully a moment and then
walked slowly away until she could hear
only faintl the derisive shouts. Prob
ablyJMiss Jones did not stop to consider
what the children were ''calling to
Tilda." She frowned at the din and
said, "What a tiresome noise."
.Tilda, crouched behind the wagon,

some. The rough corn shucks made
her fingers sting and ache; but they
were used to that. The jeers of her play
mates made the tears fill her blue eyes,

but they, too, were used to that. She
was looking at Karl's pinched face, and
she said in a half whisper, when the
wagon had moved on over the hill,
"Wasn't de apple good, Karl?"
And Karl's hungry eyes brightened
as he answered.
"I tink it was bo, Tilda."
Of Special Interest to Women.
It is doubtful if any other newspaper
in the United States caters so success
fully to the varied interests of the home
as does the great daily combining the
Chicago Record and the Chicago Times- v
Herald, The Chicago Record-Herald.
There is a fashion article in every issue;
a department devoted to intere3tiDg
items of unending variety concerning
matters in which women have special
interest; Mme.Qui Vive's "Woman Beau
tiful" column in which questions con
cerning the toilet, etc., are answered and
useful hints are given; a humorously
illustrated article daily on the latest
edibles for the table; "Meals for a Day,"
including meuus and recipes for the
three meals every day; an installment of
a high-grade serial story; and in addi
tion, the "Stories of the Day' column
on the editorial page, S. E. Riser's hu
morous "Alternating Currente," the
boys' and girls' page, and Dr. Withrow's
article on the Sunday school lesson in
the Saturday issues; also entertaining
and valuable book reviews, the Current
Topics Club, and in the Sunday issues
numerous special fashions, household
and other articles, all very interesting
to the sex.

"A note from the German Emperor!"

"A billy doux!" observed her Majesty.
"And a note from the United States!'
"A Yankee Doodle doux!" cried this
