The Duke of Derry was Young not married and As everyone knows quite poor Quot Stony Quot is his own expression. So most of the girls treated him As a sort of brother.

The next Day the men were to a not the great Spinney it was the big Lav of the week and every one was what min inn Busker called Well on time every one except the Duke. Quot we ran t wait for old Stony a the men agreed after croak fast. And various expeditions m the Bachelor quarters Drew Blank the Duke sent Down to say he had strained a muscle and could t go . \ big Onk gallery runs round the Hall at the towers and my room we i of the gallery. I do not know that i was surprised when i opened my door to see a do Shulo Pool shoot tip past me and full Hack with a loud i Rush to the Hull floor. My n untie in arms would do it i heard miss Van Busker say with great apparent vexation. When descended the big staircase n moment later miss inn Quaker. And. Of course the Duke who quite Well were resting on the big Oak sent with the High Hack. Mba a Vun Busker held the do nolo Sticks and the Duke waa twirling the spool in tils hands and look lug at miss Van Busker. All that Day and the next miss Van Busker Learned diabolo. "1 dont get on one mite Quot she would answer whop questioned and the other men gave up All realm to trash Long her. Our main Staple of conversation became miss vim Busker Quot a Progress in the game. On the fourth Day she had improved slightly the Duke bad. Dec a red the Long gallery a hotter i a r e for learning and poor lady lady Jane who did not want to stand in his Way asked them to be very careful i tit when i went through by mistake the do nolo Lay on the a two people occupied ground and the tall Oak they wry re looking at the pictures. At Tea that i Fler noon the Post came in. Quot i be got u lot of snapshots from Oree Hays a lady Lull Degarde Bald suddenly and looked at Mesa Van Busker. Corullo hushed the slightest prettiest Pink hut she finished her Tea and then got up and went into the Hall. Little lady Hildegarde handed me the snapshots. A Bertie sent them a she said briefly. A miss Van Busker was staying there. She seems to forget games a she added wickedly. In quite six of the dozen or More photographs miss Van Busker i regret to say appeared playing la Bolo with the most finished Grace. She wus depleted in the act of catching and throwing the Pool with the precision of an expert. Lady Hll Degarde laughed. Quot what would Stony say Quot she murmured. But her brother had followed Mesa Van Busker from Tho room. I happened to Pasa through the Hall not Long after. Two people occupied the tall Oak seat under the Palms. Quot Why yes Quot 1 help hearing a drawling murmur As 1 hurried by. Quot i guess i knew it All the time pretty Well. But i kind of thought you a like to teach me did t you a but i shut my door upstairs upon the Sanawor. Hast and West of Fiji. East of Fiji life is one Long Lotus eating dream stirred Only by occasional parties of pleasure feasting love making dancing and a very Little gardening work. Music la the soul of the Leople Beauty of face and movement la More the Rule than the exception and friendliness to strangers is carried almost to excess. Westward of the Flola be the dark wicked Cannibal groups of the Solomons. Hanks and new hebrides where life la More like a Nightmare than a dream murder stalks openly in Broad Daylight people Are nearer to monkeys than human beings in aspect and music and dancing Are Little practice and la the rudest possible Leo graphic Maga slue tiik it not sink non. The pc melons or nmn relate Home of its wonderful Dongi. Quot you talk about lights with Shorki and sighting sea serpents a said third officer Carl ducks of the a Man steamship Allu Nony a he leaned Over the Chart Nile Quot do you so that spot on the map in the Bay of Bengal Well we were he Culm cd there for a week when i was working before the Mast on the full rigged ship Arethusa ten years ago. Thero had not been As my h an a breath of nor stirring for a week and All of us Iny around a pan l it it and nope less for the Bay of Bengal is i of the happiest place in the world to be becalmed in. Quot Tho skipper had no orders to give so did t give any. And no one of us in the focus in knew hot to a with himself. On lie seventh Day when this idleness got on nerves and we were lazily Drifting with the currents the Tenn at the wheel suddenly discovered that the prot Niiha v a being pushed Over to port notwithstanding that he and ills wheel hard Over endeavouring to key the vessel in a straight course Quot none of us could understand it for there did not seem to be As much As a Small current in Tho sea and there surely was not a puff of wind in the flapping Canvas. Quot suddenly Metzger the Bosun. Leaned Over the starboard rail for i Ward and pol Teu excitedly to the 1 water below. All of us ran to him and there dimly visible and entirely submerged was a huge Ink fish close to Larboard Side. Tun Teddy balt end Ani Erlynn factories could it make enough. The craze seems to have started at Atlantic City. A child them a s one chronicle saw a lovable looking Little fuzzy Brown pin it in a Iii a shop window one Ila it and bad his Mother buy it for him. It was a Bear made by an old indy in Germany. Other children saw the child with the Bear and rolled. Visitors it Atli Nolc City took Home with them the Bear fad and lie Bear craze was in the Saddle. The German woman who Laid set it the bears Over years Ugo and Bud since then b in making com Pant holy few just enough to satisfy the Stuib demand wondered Why the american toy dealer suddenly sent such Large orders Fer Tho bears Teddy beats As Tuer Tenns began to Call them immediately. The average German toy Milker supplies orders As they Cone in. Not i in lug to Ketti on band a Large Stock of goods with Only ephemeral popularity. So the lady was Henrj put to it. In a Short time she had More than 3,0u0 girls tit work on the Teddy Bear and the Calls for and Rauls were still insistent. A Many of the ideas of the German toy makers come from Krance and to bout la the i ult Dot Etc from Germany the american manufacturer promptly fell in line Lor the Turah Trade. Hundreds of bears Sre being made every Day in the United states and the issues of the Trade journals of toy land carry Many so Sci else in its of to div but Urs. High heels. It la mid owe their origin to Persia we saw they were introduced to raise the feet from the Ourn Loc Sands. Carving the in fish. Quot because the Ink fish had spread her Peculiar colouring on the water about her we could hardly make her . It is a peculiarity of lha Ink Flah this spreading of a Haze around her. I think Here you Call the Ink Flash an octopus. Whichever it is. Ours was actually pushing 3.000 ton ship Over of the course to which the helmsman was trying to keep the Arethusa. Quot Tho Captain ordered a Harpoon brought and the Hook Una dropped right on top of the Ink Flash catching the monster amidships and she waa with the Aid of a Block and tackle rigged to the for Yard soon High and dry on the of c ale deck. Quot one of the boys was investigating the monster which weighed every ounce of seven Hundred pounds when suddenly shot one of the dozen tentacles from the Ink Flash. When that was withdrawn another would a Hoot and in this Way the Ink Flash Bent toward stanchions twisted Tho Rati into a shapeless mass and spread ruin and damage All Over the Forward Section. Quot Dan Sodt the Carpenter had a Bright suggestion. None of us could get near to the Ink Flash whose arms were about Twenty or Twenty five feet in length and which were now swaying All around keeping the Crew at a Safe the Carpenter brought in axe and when the first Arm reached Hla Vicinity off came five feet of tentacle. He kept this up with each tentacle in succession until the dozen arms of the Ink flesh had been shortened by five feet. Then be got nearer and again made the round As the arms were that Forward toward him. Quot finally when the Ink Flash had Only a dozen stumps left and Darmstadt could got close enough to the monster he gave it one blow Between the Tittle Doorknob like eyes and that qua Tho end of the Ink Flash of the Arethusa. As the final blow was struck borne that Ink Flash gave Forth a squeal just like a Rabbit. 1 never knew a flip to be Able to utter a sound. But the death equal of that octopus Ink Flash will never Leavo my ears help to the housewife. Nobody Ever thinks of if Tler a hot stove Ltd with the Quot augers. Stovell ters Aru provided Lor exactly this Piir Poso. For the same reason the housewife should not to compelled to lift n hot cooking utensil from Tiu ire with her angers. An implement designed for this purpose is shown in the illustration. It is shaped like a Stovell Ftera in fact ran Ite used As Neh. At on nil Hur pulse for an Oyster shocker. A George 8cbusk was opening oysters in the Susquehanna House claw tsar he opened one that gave him a Surprise. It was apparently As solid and a sound As any he had opened but when he removed the a hell be found therein a Small flip about two inches to length and a a mail hard Shell crab the top of a Blafka was three fourths of an Inch in Width. The flip waa plump and life like though dead but the crab waa a Italy a a Cricket. There was no sign of an Oyster in the Shell which was 214x4 reverd. The pet dogs of Parle. In Paris dogs Are treated As Well As human beings Are. They Wear automobile togs when they go motoring. They have n Hospital and they even have a Good sited Homo try with monuments and Hoad a tones and Lacr Lottona and mortuary wreaths. Grasp Edge of Pun. Is an automatic Clamp which can to instantly slipped Over Tho Edge of any cooking utensil and moved to Tho Placo desired. Tho Clamp is so adjusted that it grasps Tho dish firmly and Thorn is no danger of it becoming Loose Aud falling to Tho floor. Such a lifter would to far More serviceable and handler than Tho usual method of using a cloth with Tho additional adv Tugo of Proton plug the funds and fingers from to Aalbu Burns. A useful precaution. A most satisfactory Way of preventing Garter clasps from Hron Liln Tho threads in the top of stockings has been devised by a woman to charge of a Largo theatrical wardrobe she sews two Small squares of ribbon on the hem of the stocking on either Side. Just where the Garter fastens. By doing this she finds that the Trulu comes on the ribbon instead of on the stocking and that no matter How lightly the stocking May by draw up the stitches will not break. Tburg is nothing much More discouraging than to find a break with a run that tuy extend half Way Down the length of the stocking and such Small precautions arc More than Worth the trouble that to necessary in taking them.

A Little sugar added to the water used in boating a roast improves its flavor.
