Write us for prices Pocomoke City my Eagle Mills. By Anne Heilman. Copyrighted 1909, by associated literary press mrs. Platt sat on her front porch Busy in braiding a mat. She was one of those women one likes to have about. There was a certain comforting presence in her Large figure and comely face. Although the face when at rest was somewhat sad yet it was one of those beaming faces that seem full of love for the whole world that is for All whom she admitted into her world. For those outside of its Bounds she had no use. Just now her thoughts were Busy with her neighbor in whose direction she sent her glances. A a Peter a getting his supper Early a she mused. A a it a pretty lonely for him but i Hope he wont be in veiled into taking Serena Lamb for a housekeeper. I never was one to promote gossip but All Clifton knows that her reputation for dressing far outdoes her skill in housekeeping. If i thought a just then Sefc turned her head and caught sight of mrs. Lamb walking up the path. A too bad to see that Nice Home going to rack and ruin a mrs. Lamb began after settling herself in the Rocker. A i hear its fairly swarming with mice. Peter Only uses two rooms. Isnit it a wonder he ainu to picked out a housekeeper Afore this a a a in be an idea a said mrs. Platt endeavouring to Spe amp a unconcern edly a that hell probably ask you a a me a interrupted mrs. Lamb in a astonished tone. A me and with such a famous Cook As you next door Trust a Man to get a Cook when he s free to pick and choose. Sarah was t much on the cooking and i guess hell want a a David and i spent Twenty five Happy years in this House a sighed mrs. Platt. A a it a come hard for me to leave itis a a a and i could t possibly leave my place a protested mrs. Lamb. A and the Garden doing so nicely too. You daughter see my strawberries Emeline. Peter says they Are the finest he Ever saw. Id bring you Over a Saucer Ful but As Peter was going on so about your getting to Stout i thought i encourage your appetite any. Yell a looking keenly . Friend to assure herself that the blow had struck Home a i must be getting Serena fared Forth slowly along the Grassy Lane. A Emeline done to care shucks for Peter Judd a she shrewdly conjectured. A David Platte a Money is More to her than any living Man. But Bhend take the place for no other reason than to keep me out of it As if any one would look twice when i m around a and she glowed with a Fine satisfaction As she compared herself to mrs. Platt to be sure Emeline was an Umpire on All the arts of housekeeping her a cookery was town talk while she had never become proficient in the Art but there were other ways of reaching a Many a heart. Serena knew because she had proved it twice. In fact neither lady had deceived the other. Each knew the other from widely different motives stood ready at a moments notice to respond to Peter Judd Scall for a housekeeper. Each knew that Clifton was wondering which of the two widows who lived on either Side of Peter would be called eventually to fill the departed Sarah a place for the custom prevailed in Clifton when a Man was in the Wisdom of Providence bereaved to Hunt out some widow respected by the Community to undertake the duties of housekeeper and generally after a decent period of mourning the Twain became one. A if Serena makes up her mind to have Peter hell have to give in a philosophize mrs. Platt. A a she a already married two that did no to in the least want her. She a comfortably off too and done to need to leave her Home. I be so set against it if i did no to know a twas her that interfered Between him and Floretta Young More a Twenty years ago. Peter up and married Sarah out of pure spite and Floretta took that Good for nothing by Blakey. If Ever two people were Cut out for one another Peter and Floretta were7 Well As he a held out again Serena for Over a year he May escape for Good. Ill not worry any but she did. The Chance and apparently careless remarks that Serena let fall As if an understanding existed Between herself and Peter Judd fretted a Mellner a spirit. In the Depths of her honest soul a she believed that Peter was a regular caller at the Lamb Home. She waited for the announcement of Serena a engagement As for a blow that was sure to fall. Still when it came she was not prepared for it. One afternoon she had just taken her accustomed seat on the porch when the Gate opened and mrs. Lamb swept up the path with an unusual air of importance. A land ainu to it hot a she exclaimed. A such a muss As in be got into a carefully arranging the folds of her new Organ die skirt before sitting Down. Her tone rang with Triumph. Mrs. Platt Felt the change in the atmosphere and All her world darkened. A a there Sall that House of Peters to be gone Over this hot weather. Not a mite of cleaning since Sarah died. Such a looking place and it must be All rid up by the Middle of september. I just ran in to ask if your paint and Whitewash brushes were in Good order. Peter said As How you mentioned having a Supply of Mem when you offered to keep House for him months ago. My How red your face is Emeline you Hadnot ought to Wea Pink. Now if i do say it in be a complexion that la stand any a i did no to exactly offers a stammered mrs Platte ears of mortification smart ing her eyes. Quot a ooh Well it is All past and done with a interrupted Serena airily. A i just had to give in. take a Well if you la lend the brushes ill be go into armed with the brushes. Serena departed every movement of the Organ die proclaiming Victory. In the Days that followed mrs. Platt gave much time to sitting on the front porch watching her friends Progress in the housecleaning line. Serena called Seldom now nth the time passed slowly. A i just ran in to. Ask your opinion of these began Serena one Day in september. A a we re going to have new carpets for the double Parlours. Done to you prefer the Green a Serena wore her Best dress. A i shall need a new one she said complacently smoothing Down its Silken folds. A i suppose the affair �?T11 come off soon a ventured mrs. Platt after the merits of greens and reds in carpets had been duly canvassed but Serena Only smiled consciously As she gathered up the samples and departed. A i suppose it la come off after Harvest a mused mrs. Platt Despo Dently meaning Peters wedding. One afternoon As mrs. Platt was setting her table for Tea she was surprised by a Call from Peter Judd. A coming to invite me to the wedding a she surmised As he sauntered up the path. A Well if its foreordained he should marry Serena ill not be spiteful about it sit Down and have a cup of Tea she urged cutting a great fat. Shaking four storied Jelly cake into generous slices. Peter Judd a Large Man with a pleasant Florid face seated himself and absorbed Tea and cake with Mitch satisfaction. A you always were a master hand at cake Emeline a he commented affably. A i never saw your beat. Its something in that line that i called to see you was it possible that he was going to ask her to initiate Serena in the difficult Art mrs. Platte a face clouded. A Well a she asked in a strained voice. A i want that you should do a Little baking for me. Could you a a do some baking for Yop a she gasped. A for the lands Sakes when a Peter reached for another piece of cake. A for the next tuesday and the balance of the week. Youth know what a the wedding was to take place tuesday. Then. Emeline a world was a temporary Blank. A Serena like it a she faltered. A what if she done to exploded or. Judd. A she can to Cook. And i want something decent in the House when i get Back from a Aback Froid Minooka a Emeline asked in a dazed fashion. A Are you going away a a Why of course going to Minooka to get Mafried. Done to you know that Floretta lives there a a a Floretta Are you is she a a her Many a dead if that a what you re trying to get at drank himself to death i reckon. I thought you knew All mrs. Platt poured More Tea with a shaking hand. A sudden burst of Sunshine illuminated her world. A does miss Lamb know a a not she a returned Peter beginning another attack on the cake. A a a taint none of her business anyway. I got her to clean up before Floretta comes. That Sall i wanted of her. Will you do them things Emeline the cakes and such a / a yes yes a cried mrs. Platt. Her voice was Joyful her face aglow. All the gloom of the past few weeks vanished As if by magic. A a in la do More a that. Peter. In a so tickled to have Floretta for a neighbor again that in a invite a lot of her old friends Here for tuesday. And i la have the Best dinner spread out that you Ever sat Dawn it r perils of explorers. A tragic journey across a desert of Central Asia. One of the most of the Central asian adventures of Sven Hedin the swedish explorer. Was Ali is in february 1895, Sven Hedin started eastward exploring the country Between the Kashgar and Markand Rivers proceeding in april to Cross the Takla Mann desert Between the Yark Atid and Khotan Rivers. Never before had any known traveler attempted to exploit a course amid the eternal sea of shifting Sand Hills from River to River. The tale of that Little travel worn bedraggled group far beyond the last watering place enveloped in dust stumbling along through the dreary but agitated desert sea by Crooks and roundabout ways with desolation spread around and every Trace of life departed was a weird and pathetic one. A not even a Fly was to be heard in the air not even a yellow Leaf broke the and Ever at their head was the sturdy figure of the swedish explorer Compass in hand still enthusiastic guiding them As Best he could through the death shrouded wilderness. At length the camels had to eat their Straw saddles and the last of the bread was gone. Horrors followed. As men and camels dropped out of the line they were immediately enveloped in the whirling Sand shroud and never seen again. The end came on May 5, when Sven Hedin crawling on All fours dragged himself across the dry bed of the Khotan River. A fall of a sudden a Duck flew into the air and water splashed a he wrote. Two of his followers were All that survived and it is doubtful whether even those two would have lived to Tell the tale had not Sven Hedin carried Back water for them in his boots.

Recently the teacher told the class in composition that on the next Day she would expect each of them to be Able to write a Short anecdote. She explained with great care the meaning of the word anecdote and next Day when she called the class up to write All but the laggard went at once to work. A Why done to you write an anecdote Rob a asked the teacher. A i forgot that an anecdote is a said Rob undisturbed. A i explained to you yesterday Rob and you ought to remember a said the teacher a bit out of patience. A an anecdote is a tale. Now Rob Bent Over his slate and with much twisting of brow and writhing of lip. Ground out his task. When the slates were collected his was at the very top of the Heap. The teacher picked it up and this is what she read a yesterday we had soup made from the anecdote of an mail. Two Brave women who outwitted a band of indians. One summer afternoon in 1776 Jemima Boone and two Sisters named Callaway while boating on the Kentucky allowed their Canoe to Drift close to the a opposite Bank. Here behind a Bush five Shawnee warriors were in hiding and although the spot was not More than a Quarter of a mile from Boonesborough one of the Shaw nees struck boldly out into the water seized the Canoe and dragged it to Shore with its screaming occupants. Once in the Power of the indians however these Youthful daughters of the wilderness betrayed a wonderful self Possession and resourcefulness. They knew enough of Indian customs to realize that if their strength failed them and they should prove unequal to the Long March to the Shawnee towns on the Ohio they would a slaughtered mercilessly. So they stifled sobs and calmly accompanied their captors without protest or struggle. At every Opportunity though they secretly Tore Little pieces from their clothing and attached them to Bushes of the Trail. Nothing More was needed to inform Boone and his fellow settlers who had quickly started in Pursuit that they were on the right track and on the second Day of the Captivity they caught up with the indians.

If a Friend asked him what was the matter he would sorrowfully explain a a in be lost one of my children this once a Rich Birmingham manufacturer Gillott by name a introduced himself to the Painter and stated that he had come to buy. A a done to want to sell or some such laconic Rebuff was the answer. The manufacturer then Drew from his pocket a bundle of banknotes about ,000 Worth. A Mere paper a observed Turner with grim humor a Little softened however and evidently enjoying the joke.

This tone of Cool depreciation seemed to have a Happy effect and finally Gillott departed with some �5,000 Worth of Turners a a strenuous wooer. A the reminiscences of Bismarck contains an account of his courtship. was a Young prussian officer when he first met Johanna von Puttkamer but he made application at once to her father for permission to pay his addresses. Aghast at Bismarck s proposal the old gentleman did not absolutely decline it instead he wrote giving permission to pay a sort of a visit of inspection at the Puttkamer Home. Bismarck hastened to Reinfeld. The whole Puttkamer family was lined up to Greet him. The father and Mother glared at him solemnly and Johanna herself stood Between them her Eye cast modestly downward. With Tho Swift whirlwind decision that scored Bismarck his later political triumphs he carried the situation by storm. Galloping up the driveway he leaped from his horse ran Forward and Flung his arms around Johanna taking no heed of her scandalized parents and catching her to his breast and covering her blushing face with kisses.

The great piano teacher whose comic spirit is one of the predominating features of his character. It is Well known that he is a Man of Strong likes and dislikes. When an american pianist a dozen or so years ago went to Vienna to study with him he wore Bis hair Long a habit much affected at that time by the aspiring Young artist. So greatly did his general appearance annoy the professor that at the end of the first lesson the student received instructions to go and have his hair Cut Short. Although Loath to part with his locks the Young pianist nevertheless obeyed and turned up at the next lesson with his hair Cut in the conventional Way. Still Lesche Tizzy was not satisfied.

Electrical discharges from plants. The atmosphere surrounding our Earth is known to be electrified and its charges Are bound to play an important part in Many Phenomena. Atmospheric electrification thus is responsible for the formation of rain and Hail and while Fine weather generally is characterized by the presence of positive electricity a change in the weather is generally accompanied by a change in the sign of atmospheric electricity. That the electrification of the air does exert some influence on Plant growth is inferred from the fact that electrified plants under the influence of Sunshine can give off electricity from the leaves and As the air is naturally electrified relatively to the soil All plants Are bound to be in a constant state of slow electrical discharge which is made Active on the rising of the Sun.
