The top in sight Aud Over the Summit they thought they saw a Glimmer of Prosperity s St. This was hopeful though it did not relax their struggle nor did it bring them rest. Octavius accepted things More cheer Lully than Sabrina and rejoiced with magnificent philosophy Over the Small things of Earth. To Sabrina a self de Nial was a trial and not an Opportunity for Triumph Over a Back ache was a real tangible pain and not slight cold with twinges 1 their very variety of temperament equalized troubles and pleasures which made them appear an average couple to the big outside world. The Spring was getting Middle aged. Octavius came Home to noon dinner bringing the news that they were to have a Long afternoon drive. For a moment Sabrina was delighted then demurred the err purse w h be too Octavius laughed his great open laugh. Expense was not attached to trip. I met a he explained who has loaned me his horse and of there never was such Luck and the tuneless Man essayed to hum the bedding March from Lohengrin. Who is to a to drive Why i you know nothing of sneered Sabrina. I will remain at said Octavius i d have you know that i understand horses perfectly. I drove hundreds of lore i met tried to drive a mule and to ult laughed Sabrina. Well be will go but i doubt whether we return with whole May weather in Canada do snot often such Oxire Clear air As did this particular Day and Sabrina grew Happy its softening influence. She donned her prettiest attire and tripped after Octavius. The horse and trap were waiting at the Accident happened. Whether the lady was Ali armed where they Mere going to and they were from Between their curiosity and exceeding deafness explanations were difficult and tedious. Still they appeared satisfied with the responses and stooped to examine the trouble bumping their dear old inquisitive Heads in doing so. One Ham mered and the other but the wheel stayed where it was. They a harnessed the horse who looked Down of their labors and the wreck in. Smiling satisfaction picking a few new leaves from an adjacent Bush with a picturesque indifference that was admirable. Sabrina gave Octavius a Cloudy look and thought hard things of the afternoon was waning. The old men began to look weary their first Helper stood by the horse and consulted his watch. The scotch Baker alone kept energetic. Along the Road came a melodious whistle. A French drinking song could traced in the High shrill notes. . Followed a neat French Workman in pm emails Juliu Uiola tools in hand his Cap setting sideways his piquant Bronze face. His whistling ceased. He ran to tie Road Ker Tat Rcw they were soon among Green Fields. And was under the trap in a twinkle. He could not speak in Gish but Jue could mend the break. Off came the wheel. A few Stoart strokes of the few screws of the wrench and All was in place once More. The old gentlemen straightened their stiff backs helped Sabrina into the vehicle and accepted All the thanks. On went the Young Man who had acted As Groom touching his hat and murmur ing something about the Peculiar Acci the Scotchman had disappeared As by magic and was never seen again. The Frenchman vigorously said non non to Octavius proffered tip but finally accepted it with his left hand Aud a Merci Mon Riith his tools and hit whistle like the useful Brownie he was. A silent journey Back along the River Road with a thankfulness at heart that their Accident was not serious and an awed admiration for the wonderful Pic Ture that Lay before them the entire Way. Here the great River Blue almost to Violet in the Early evening Light. There islands shadowy grim and mysterious dotting its pure surface the wonderful la Rhine rapids churning and fretting their Silver Fras work through the River s azure.

Travelling comforts t Waal Tor the Acme of Comfort in travelling it to carry everything in the Way of cloth ing that you will need so that the proper garment for each always at hand and yet not be loaded Down with one unnecessary article. Ideas like tastes greatly differ but for per sons travelling for pleasure and Thor Ough enjoyment by land or sea the Fol lowing practical suggestions from per Sonal experience Ever the Wisest teacher will prove of interest at this season american women Are the Best dressed people that one meets on a journey but even they must remember that 30 pounds is the average weight allowed to each tourist upon the continent. Of course a traveler is Given the privilege of loading himself or herself Down with hand Luggage but this is uncomfortable for the one interested As Well As for one s fellow clerk. After stumbling Over bags and boxes in a Stuffy French at German car i have rowed never to carry a superabundance of such things myself even though it is allowed. For an Ocean journey at any time except Midsummer a heavy wrap like a fur or Golf Cape is necessary. Tics and gaiters Are far More comfortable than shoes and warm Wool underwear is a necessity. Also be sure to Wear heavy Hose and the Muslin or Cambric Gar ments and silk or Alpaca Petticoat usual at the season. Wear on Board a pretty mixed Cheviot Serge etc., made As a jacket suit with a silk Waist and hat to correspond. This will answer for a travelling gown on and Many Wear it All the time a Rhine or. But if poor traveler and obliged to lie around on deck or in the berth it is a Wiser plan to have a second and older gown to Don As the Shore fades in the distance with a soft Steamer Cap. At the end of the voyage this old gown can be Given to the stewardess or if a Steamer trunk is taken and you intend returning by the same line the steamship company will allow you to Send the trunk to them for safekeeping until your boat returns j of dropping them a line when to Send it to the boat. In such a Case put the old gown Steamer Cap Rug etc., in the paraphernalia that is used exclusively on the voyage. Personally i do not like Steamer trunks they Careen All Over the state room if the water is rough and if Calm you do the careening trying to pull one from under the berth. Into a Large shawl strap fold your Rug not too heavy a one Steamer Cap Sun umbrella dark silk covered Cushion for the Back of your chair overshoes and heavy wrap. In a Large bag put a flan Nellette wrapper to use at ladies world. Made Learned by Law. Relink by the Veteran to the Jiow officers of the co Art. In the territorial Days before Iowa had attained the dignity and prestige of statehood when the population con indians and the territory was a ver Itable Terra incognito to the far East there was heard in the United states District c to a noteworthy bit of gentlemanly sarcasm Well worthy of repetition. Oilman Fol soca of the Iowa City bar scholar and veritable old school gentleman had occasion to try a Case in that court before a judge confess edly Young in years and professional experience who had secured the place because of political influence rather than on account of his eminent fitness for the judicial Ermine. Opposed to Folsom in the Case was the United states District attorney who like the judge had been appointed for political reasons instead of his ability. During the trial of the Case Folsom with True professional Courtesy and politeness continually referred to and addressed the District attorney As my Learned the judge was also characterized As the Learned the District attorney fully conscious of his own shortcomings and realizing the Little claim he had to the adjective Felt instinctively that he was be ing made a subject of ridicule. Be fidgeted around until it seemed to him that patience had ceased to be a virtue and then appealed to the court ask ing that Jar. Folsom be required to de Sist in his persistent sarcastic references to him As Ray Learned then informed by the court that his sarcasm was unnecessary and uncalled for Folsom looked up with a Well affected air of Surprise and said with the inimitable accent and Grace of the old school gentleman i sarcastic your Honor i did not was Learned and he certainly he then proceeded with his argument As though nothing had happened continually referring to the District at Torney and the judge As Learned. The judge soon interrupted him and administered a Stern rebuke for his persistent sarcasm telling him it Mutt cease. Folsom protested saying but your Honor i simply said he was Learned and i insist that he he then turned to the United states statutes and read to the court statute providing for the appointment of men who shall be Learned in the Law As judges and attorneys of the District courts. Closing his Book and removing glasses he continued so your Honor you see that he is learned4, not in the sense your ponor is Learned not in the sense i try to be Learned but from the fact your Honor that he is made Learned by act of so further objection was made to his times Herald.

Cleanliness variety arc important except in rare instances the woman who has a Home of Ter own be it Ever so simple and Plain desires to make the spot As pretty As she can. The instinct toward neatness and Beauty Dies hard in womankind but it can be utterly destroyed by the slow process of discouragement and the f a6t that nobody cares. The truth is that human beings need not Only to see cleanliness but to see freshness and variety and change and the housecleaning should be no More an object of pleasure and interest to the woman than to the Man. There is much she can do without him. She can scrub the floor but he could and should Whiten the ceiling. She cannot paper the Walls perhaps though Many a Farmer s wife has done even that but give her the Money and she will buy the paper and find some one to Hong it.

Besides this he buys the pre pared paints and Little by Little gives a fresh coat to the various rooms it is no More than his share of the task.

Give her these and you May Trust her for Clear shining windows spotless and pretty curtains fresh and Bright coverings for lounges chairs ninth Well dusted Book shelves a few fresh ferns or Flowers or a growing Plant in the window.
