'-Those curtains are just the thing. I am elad I thought of that She locked the door and walked slowly along toward the house of an uncle where she had been staying for a few weeks while putting her house in order. The first part of her vacation she had spent at her father's in the a few miles away. The part of the Minnesota town where she was walking was composed mostly of small built by people of moderate but they were neat and homelike and many pretty gar- dens and shade trees about them. When she had gone a short distance she turned and walked back toward the main street where were larger houses and more shade trees. She had gone but a short distance when a young man walked up beside her.

A little girl ran up beside her. Miss she cried when does school begin In about two I hope you'll be my teacher and I'll go to the new school- house my folks so maybe won't. I came up here to see Kitty furniture. She went around and around with it as the timbers and the stones and chairs and then she lay still on the ground and the whirling cloud moved on. The young man went on with it. He put out his hand the one he could caught at the limbs of a tree that came all about him but he could not hold them.

Martha Snow opened her eyes wide with and tried to raise herself but she felt so sore and stiff she could only groan. sakl the turn- ing away from the baby to look at lie and she re-arranged the coat that was doing duty as a pillow. you Shall I get you some she gently. is what docs it where am asked the horror stricken young woman. the you said the you are in hero with the wounded because there hasn't been A doctor called her to come and she moved away quickly.

A New York reporter called recently on a wholesale dealer in clothespins. The storehouse where the merch'int kept his stock was tilled with bales and sacks. Hundreds of thousands of clothespins were there. The proprietor patted a huge bale with a gentleness suggestive of appreciative affection and discoursed after this are one of the staple ex- ports of this country. In the spring mil- lions are shipped to the majority being sent to England and France. A family in England without clothespins would be like plum pudding without the pudding. There are five factories in this country which manufacture over of clothespins annually. They are situated in New Jersey Chicago and Boston. The lumber which is taken from the Adiren- dack the spruce is nearly all used in making but they are of quality and sell at wholesale for twenty-five cents a gross. They are soft and apt to split upon tha line. The yellow maple and hick- ory are the be.t woods for as they season easily and the dampness of -the washing does not spring them. The greater portion of the wood comos from and to tell you how many thou- sands of feet of the good pine woods of that State find their way into clothespins would astonish you. It takes only a foot of wood six inches in thickness to pro- duce nearly 300 pins. The block of the dimensions I have given you is divided into 288 which are thrown into an automatic turning capable of turning out 500 pins every ten min- and the square pieces of thrown into the machine by the j comes out of it with the neatly turned head aud the smooth slot which fits so snugly over the clothes-line.

They i sell at wholesale for twenty cents a gross I for cents for and twenty-two cents for and twenty- two cents for hickory. is a singular fact that clothespins are seldom used in the extreme South.

An Arabic manuscript datiug from the latter half of the fourteenth century conveys the curious information I that the merchant vessels trading at that j time in the Indian ocean cirried four whose duties were solely to dis- cover and stop leaks in the hull of the craft below the waterline. The extremes of size are an infusorium of an inch in the I smallest animal ever and the 100 feet the largest animal ever created. The female is sometimes larger than the as of the spider and eagle. The higher the class the more uniform the size.
