By Virginia Leila wentz.5 copyright 1909, by associated literary press it it had been a unusually oppressive � Day even for August. Every one a seemed sleepy or sleeping. Cobblers slept with half mended boots in their laps italian women slept at their fruit stands with babies at their breasts horses trotted conscientiously g along in front of sleeping in the department store where an -9 Tona Wheaton worked the Day had 8 been difficult especially behind the Stuffy Corner where she measured out ribbons. And of what a godsend the i loud sounding Bell at 0 had been most of the girls in the store were City bred and they accepted the conditions of August philosophically but Antona Wheaton had come from a fresh Little country town in the West and As she leaned from her boarding House win Dow the third floor Hall room Back a few minutes before going Down to dinner it seemed to her that she was locked in a place of torment from which no escape was possible. They dined at 7 in mrs. Brown s boarding House. In the half hour that Antona had been Home she had taken a sponge Bath brushed her Silky Flaxen hair and changed her Black Alpaca dress for a simple White Muslin. As she leaned out of the window from the open space beside the storage House in the rear she could see the dust carts Roll Down the streets. The whisk ing of their big rotary brooms reminded the country bred girl of Large tur key gobblers sweeping the Earth with disdainful proud wings. The open space faced the West and resting her Little Oval Cheeks in her hands Antona could see that the doing its Best to set with some sort of rightful Beauty even in this homely downtown Section. Where the quiet coloured end of evening smiles Antona was speaking to herself in a reprehensible fashion that was grow Ingon her trying to recall some verses which Francis Logan had quoted to her one Sunset time Down on the Bat Tery. She had fancied she could re member them they were so simple and Lovely. Just then mrs. Brown s cracked Din Ner Bell rang. Across the Long narrow table fran Cis Logan glanced at Antona with something like a Lump born of a big protective instinct rising in his Throat. Every vestige of fresh country Rose Bloom had fled from the girl s Sweet lace and in the intervals when she fancied she was not observed the Young fellow s Alert Eye noticed that Black lashes rested heavily against her Cheek As would those of one who is Over weary.

She needed to be petted and taken care of. The car role to the River was Long. The Sun glow had faded entirely out of the West and the Gray veil that spread Between the night and Day was already beginning to be pricked by the City s innumerable lights when finally they reached the drive and leaned Over the Stone Wall that edged it. The Palisades on the opposite Shore cast huge Black shadows upon the water. Near by a yacht or two were at Anchor. Silently mysteriously their lights came up one by one. Over on the Jersey Shore a big building which by Day showed itself to be an unsightly factory now took on the majesty of a mediaeval Castle. See the turrets and Spires said Francis calling Antosha s attention to it. Do you know the Story of the lady of Sli Lott added. She lived in a grand Castle Well pretend that s it nodded toward the factory and from the highest window she watched her Lover sir Launcelot go in by and she drifted Down the River to find him. Well pretend this is the River and dear Little lady of Shalotta will you let me be your sir Launcelot i love you and want you to marry me and let me take care of you.

Eagle Mills Ocomo i Citty \u25a0\u25a0 the girl s eyes As spoke were Dis tant. All the yellow lights on the yachts seemed to be swinging them selves together. Just look at my hair Francis an Tona was saying Twenty minutes later with a shy note of laughter. I m looking at it dear said fran Cis oddly with something like a catch in his Rich Young voice. And just to think i a going to have it to look at All my life making sure of the architect. Norman Al Touar an arabian King who reigned Long Long ago at Hirah commanded the architect Sennema to build him a wondrous Palace. This the architect did and when it was done a single Stone fastened the whole Structure and the colors of the Walls changed frequently during the Day. The King was greatly pleased and showered All kinds of Rich gifts upon the builder with the lavishness of Oriental Kings. But monarchs were treacherous in those old Days and it occurred to the King that Sennema might build a Palace equal in Beauty or even Superior for some rival ruler. The More thought Over it the More jealous became until one Day ordered the architect to be thrown from the top of the Palace to make certain that no duplicate Palace would be made. After this the King was satisfied that his Palace was the Only one and the arabians regarded it As one of the wonders of the world. As Good As sent. At a recent meeting of the directors of an Eastern Railroad a prominent Railroad Man repeated a Story that just had from a conductor on one of the limited expresses Between new York and the West. It seems that a Dapper Chap in the first chair car had managed to become unusually Friendly with an attractive Young woman in an adjoining seat. When the train pulled into Buffalo the Masher in taking leave of the lass re marked do you know i must thank you for an awfully awfully pleasant time but i m afraid you would not have been so Nice to me had you known that i was a married y of As to that quickly and pleas Antly responded the charming Young woman you Haven t the least advantage of me.

As Long As there Are children in the t world the Golden and object less occupation of make believe will go on the Pursuit of Delight itself untrammelled by rules or purpose. Eton College chronicle. Actions speak louder than words. The sunday school class was sing ing i want to be an who Don t you sing louder Bobby i m singing As loud As i feel explained bobby.?Delineator. Shoemaker s candles. I Well remember some seventy years ago seeing Flat candles in use. To produce what was known As the Flat Candle which was also sometimes called Shoemaker s Candle two newly made dips were pressed close to each other while soft and then again lowered into the hot fat thus holding them together As one Candle with two Wicks. The size could then be i reas de if desired. This Flat canine was most generally used by Shoemakers and tailors but was made use of in some households whenever an extra Bright Light for working or Reading was required.?Cor. Dickensian. Too much like work. Haven t you a Home asked the sympathetic j yep a swered plodding Pete. I i had a Nice Home but de first t ing i i knew it had a Wood pile and a Garden and a pump and Den it got so much like a steady Job Dat i resigned."? Washington Star. Impossible. How do you overcome insomnia say the multiplication table up to twelve times but 1 can t get the baby to learn1 it."?Cleveland Leao a Antona s weariness struck Home per haps because of contrast. Francis him self was More than usually Happy that night. The big importing House where was employed had that very morning sent a note to his desk informing him that his salary had been increased some to a month. His dear Mother Over in Devonshire had just written him that a relative had left her an unexpected Little legacy. Altogether the world was going Well with Francis Logan. You look pleased or. Logan observed mrs. Brown from her accustomed seat at the head of the table. A i remember this is your favor Ite soup for five years now Young Logan had been an inmate of mrs. Brown s establishment without having Ever changed his seat at table or his room. Naturally mrs. Brown sought to ingratiate her self with him. Why my dear she had exclaimed once to Antona in a burst of enthusiasm knows All the poets by heart. sees Only the Best plays even though it May be from gallery seats. knows All the finest pictures up in the metropolitan. has what they Call an artistic taste too. My lands you should hear him notice the Sunset at the end of a narrow City Street or a tiny Flower out in the Park or yes i know said Antona impulsively for once coming out of her re serve. s pure Gold that s what is huh Gold " mrs. Brown had retorted disdainfully none o your pretty soft yellow stuff for him. s Good solid practical steel if any one asked me. Don t you forget it miss Wheaton. And if y6u could be Fortu Nate enough to tie up to him mrs. Brown had broken off abruptly at. A Flash from miss Wheaton s Eye. One dared not presume too far with miss Wheaton in spite of the Silky Flaxen hair and the childish pimples As Many of the Young men a the department store had found out. If Only they could be a Little More like or. Logan Antona had More than once found herself commenting As she pinned up her coloured bolts. is the soul of Honor and i a Don t know what i d do without him had a stroke of Luck today Little Logan waylaid Antona As she was going upstairs after the scanty Saucer of raspberries made purple with milk had been eaten. I want you to come out tonight and help me celebrate if you la do me the a Little later from the basement Din ing room window mrs. Brown who was arranging her cloth for the next morning s breakfast watched them go tip the Street together. Antona in her simple White Muslin wore a nodding array of Pink roses at her Waist As they walked toward the West the Young fellow s eyes were fastened adoringly upon her. Guess they la hit it off All right commented mrs. Brown at she went on refilling the porcelain Salt cellars. Ill Tell you what Well do said Francis As they walked toward the cars. Well go out to of Riverside drive and sit there for awhile till the night gets cooler then Well go to some big Uptown restaurant and order some ice /.?old Chicken broke in Antona in economic i ? the tax on Salt. One of the things that started the French revolution. Before the French revolution the government established warehouses at which the inhabitants were compelled to Purchase their stores of Salt. These warehouses were numerous in some provinces and few in others but whether sufficient or insufficient for the needs of the population they were often situated at a considerable Dis Tance from the towns and villages whose inhabitants had to trudge Miles along bad roads to buy their Salt. But this was not All. It was pre scribed by Law that the head of every family must Lay in his Stock of Salt not at such times As might suit his own convenience but on one stated Day in the year. Should fail in this Observance was tined and was also fined if purchased a smaller Quan Tity than the Law prescribed. His hardships did not Stop even there. On making his annual Purchase had to state the different purposes for which intended to use the Salt during the ensuing year and in the event of his being discovered salting his soup instead of his pork according to his statement or his pork instead of his soup on the Day had named hews also liable to a Fine. His Kitchen was never secure from the intrusion of the inspecting officer and woe to the housewife who was detected in any Petty infraction of this Law. Wonderful Rock Garden. Englishman has a three acre reproduction of the matterhorn. The largest Rock Garden in England is that of sir Frank Crisp at Friar Park Henley. It is a faithful reproduction of the matterhorn on a scale of about three acres. Seven thousand tons of Limestone were brought from Yorkshire to make it. The Snow capped Peak is represented by Quartz. Below it Are thousands upon thousands of Alpine Flowers grow ing in pockets Between the rocks and filling every chink in the trails that ascend the Mountain. There must be 200 different species in Bloom at once. At the base of the Mountain says country life in America is a Minia Ture Swiss chalet where one May sit and enjoy the scene comparing All the main features with a Little Bronze Model of the matterhorn which sir Frank had made for the entertainment of his guests. A Brook courses Down the Mountain Side and just before it reaches the chalet it forms a pretty Cascade and then spreads out at your feet into a miniature Lake decorated with pygmy water lilies and richly Marginet with pinks primroses gen trans and other Alpine Flowers. A Good laugh is Good for the health. Look at the laugh in whatsoever Light you will whether you see it As the deliverer from the bondage to out grown notions a schoolmaster with the Sharp switch of ridicule to teach us manners an apostle of democracy pro claiming that we Are All of the same Clay made of it and to return to it but every Lump of it holding some sparkle of the divine fire and woe be tide the Man that tries to make us think that is of different stuff look at the laugh i say in any Light you choose Aud you will see that it is not so much the downfall and confusion of the laughed at that makes us Happy that goggles our waistbands and sends the a a spouting out. That pumps the blood along the sluggish veins massaging the Interior works and re placing the shopworn Stock of air with a new consignment As it is the Sud Den Sharp intense realization of our personal Well being. Wood in Success Magazine. Harlem in new York. In an Early charter of what is now new York occurs the name of Lancas ter. That is what Harlem used to be called. It comprised the territory on Manhattan Island North Ofa line drawn from the foot of East seventy fourth Street to the foot of Manhattan Street. The real Harlem Village was a Settle ment collected within a radius of a Quarter of a mile from one Hundred and Twenty fourth Street and third Avenue. Today the name Harlem is applied to the whole territory North of one Hundred Aud tenth Street East and West. After the name Lancaster was eliminated the Village was called Nieuwe haarlaem.?new York press. New kind of setter. Little Oscar aged ave had a dog which was almost always to be found behind the stove in the Kitchen. Oscar once visited at a House where there were two Fine dogs.
