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 distance 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 prescribed 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 he fail in this Observance he was fined and he was also fined if he purchased a smaller Quantity than the Law prescribed. His hardships did not Stop even there. On making his annual Purchase he had to state the different purposes for which he 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 he had named he was also liable to a Fine Nis 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 growing in pockets Between the rocks and tilling 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 miniature Swiss chalet where one May sit and enjoy the scene comparing All the main features with a Little Bronze Model of the Matte Nhom 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 Gentian 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 outgrown nations Jav a schoolmaster with the Sharp switch of ridicule to teach us manners an apostle of democracy proclaiming 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 betide the Man that tries to make us think that he is of different stuff look at the laugh. I say in any Light you choose and you will see that it is not so much the downfall and confusion of the laughed at the at 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 replacing the shopworn Stock of air with a new consignment As it is the sudden Sharp intense realization of our personal Well Wood in Success Magazine. Harlem in new York. In an Early charter of what is now new York occurs the name of Lancaster. That is what Harlem used to be called. It comprised the territory on Manhattan Island North of a line drawn from the foot of East seventy fourth Street to the foot of Manhattan Street. The real Harlem Village was a settlement 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 York press.

Eagle mis of come a 047 v one August night. She was told the Story of the lady of Shalotta. By Virginia Leila Wentz. Copyright 1009, by associated literary press it had been a unusually oppressive Day even for August. Every one seemed sleepy or sleeping. Cobblers slept with half mended boots in their laps italian women slept at their fruit stands with sleeping babies at their breasts horses trotted conscientiously along in front of sleeping Drivers. In the department store where an Tona Wheaton worked the Day had been difficult especially behind the Stuffy Cornel whore she measured out Ibbons. And of what a godsend the loud sounding Bell at 0 had been most of the girls in the store were City bred and they accepted the conditions of August Philosophi ally but Antona Wheaton had come from a fresh Little country town in the West Aud As she leaned from her hoarding House windows the third floor Hall room backs 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. Browne a boarding House. In the half hour that a 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 whisking of their big rotary brooms reminded the country bred girl of Large Turkey 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 sup. Was doing its Best to set with some sort of rightful Beauty even in this homely downtown Section. A where the quiet coloured end of evening smiles a. Antona was speaking to herself in a reprehensible fashion that was growing on her trying to recall some verses which Francis Logan had quoted to her one Sunset time Down on the Battery. She had fancied she could remember them they were so simple and Lovely. Just then mrs. Browne a cracked dinner Bell rang. Across the Long narrow table fran cos. Logan glanced at Antona with something like a Lump bom of a big protective instinct rising in Bis Throat. Every vestige of fresh country Rose Bloom had fled from the girls Sweet face and in the intervals when she fancied she was not observed the Youn g Fellows Alert Eye noticed that Black lashes rested heavily against her Cheek As would those of one who is Over weary. Antonaus weariness struck Home perhaps because of contrast. Francis himself was More than usually Happy that night. The big importing House where he was employed had that very morning sent a note to his desk informing him that his salary had been increased some $10 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. A you look pleased or. Logan a observed mrs. Brown from her accustomed seat at the head of the table. A nah i remember this is your favorite soup a for five years now Young Logan had been an inmate of mrs. Browne a establishment without having Ever changed his seat at table or his room. Naturally mrs. Brown sought to ingratiate herself with him. A Why my dear a she had exclaimed once to Antona in a burst of enthusiasm a the 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 a artistic taste too. My lauds you should hear him notice the Sunset at the end of a narrow City Street or a tiny Flower out in the Park or a a yes i know a said Antona impulsively for once coming out of her Reserve. A the s pure Gold that a what he is a a a huh a Gold a a mrs. Brown had retorted disdainfully. A none of your pretty soft yellow stuff for him. a Good solid practical steel if any one asked me. Done to you forget it miss Wheaton. And if you could be fortunate enough to tie up to him a mrs. Brown had broken off abruptly at a Flash from miss Wheaton a Eye. One dared not presume too far with miss Wheaton in spite of the Silky Flaxen hair Aud the childish dimples As Many of the Young men la the department store had found out. A if Only they could be a Little More like or. Logan a Antona had More than once found herself commenting As she pinned up her coloured bolts. A the is the soul of Honor and in i done to know what id do without him a a 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. A i want you to come out tonight and help me celebrate if you la do me the a Little later from the basement dining room window mrs. Brown who was arranging her cloth for the next mornings breakfast watched them go up the Street together. Antona in her simple White Muslin wore a nodding Spray of Pink roses at her Waist As they walked toward the West the Young Fellows eyes were fastened adoringly upon her. A guess hit it off All right a commented mrs. Brown Ai she went on refilling the porcelain Salt cellars. A a in la Tell you what Well do a said Francis As they walked toward the cars. A a we la go out to Riverside drive and sit there for awhile till the night gets cooler then Well go to some big Uptown restaurant and order some Iee old Chicken �?oob.�?�, broke in Antona in economic defense a a a in a just As Lief go to a drug store Aud have some Nice a now done to you bother about the expense Little one a said Francis Gay by. A was i said in be had a rare stroke of Luck today and when we get out on one of those Cool benches on the drive in a going to Tell you about also he determined resolutely to himself he would Tell her something else. She needed to be petted and taken care of. The car ride 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 a innumerable lights when finally they reached the drive Aud 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. A see the turrets and Spires a said Francis calling anti Ian a attention to it. A do you know the Story of the lady of Shalotta he added. A she lived in a grand castles Well pretend that a it who nodded toward the factory a and from the highest window she watched her Lover sir , going by Aud she drifted Down the River to find him. Well pretend this is the River Audi 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. Surely Little one you Are so fragile and Sweet you need to be taken care of. Will you a the girls eyes As he spoke were Distant. All the yellow lights on the yachts seemed to be swinging themselves together. A just look at my hair Francis a a Tona was saying Twenty minutes later with a shy note of laughter. A a in a looking at it dear a said Francis oddly with something like a catch in his Rich Young voice. A and just to think bin going to have it to look at All my life a 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 he thought Over it the More jealous he became until one Day he 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 he sent. At a recent meeting of the directors of an Eastern Railroad a prominent Railroad Man repeated a Story that he 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 remarked Quot do you know i must thank you for an awfully awfully pleasant time but in a afraid you would not have been so Nice to me had you known that i was a married a ooh As to that a quickly and pleasantly responded the charming Young woman a you Haven to the least advantage of me.
