With their Little Brown carbines tossed jauntily Over the Broad Blue shoulders half a regiment of regular pm airy had gone trudging Down to 1he docks cheered to the Gateway of the pier by thousands of citizens who seemed to envy the very recruits who Only half uniformed and brought up the rear of the column. Once within the massive wooden portals the guards and sentries holding Back the importunate crowd the sol Diers Flung aside their heavy packs and were marshalled before an. Array of tempting tables and there feasted comforted and rejoiced under the Mux istra of Liat marvelous successor of the commission of the great civil War of the order of the red Cross.

Many a Young Soldier and Many a lass paired off in Little nooks and Corners among the stacks of Bales and boxes but at the table nearest the staging All seemed Gay Good humor. A merry Little woman with Straw col ored hair and pert tip tilted nose and much vivacity and complexion had apparently taken the Lead in the of Chaft Usu Jiuu. Lim Euils sue no stranger to most of the officers. Al most As evidently to a very close observer who stood a few paces away she was no intimate of the group of women who with Good right regarded that table As their Especial and per Sonal charge. Her red Cross badge was very new h or garb and were just As fresh and spotless. She had not lading out milk and Cream or buttering sandwiches or pinning on Dusty Blue blouses Ever since Early morning. Other faces there showed through All their smiles and sweetness the traces of Long Days of unaccustomed work and Short nights of troubled sleep. Marvelous were mrs. Frank Garrison s recuperative Powers thought they who saw her brought Home in the primes stylish Carriage weak and helpless and shaken after her adventure of the previous Day. She had not been at the Presidio a week and yet she pervaded it. She had never thought of such a thing As the red Cross until she found it the Center of the social firmament after her arrival at san Francisco and Here she Mas the last Comer the Foremost for Ward i think some one described it in their Circle at one of the most prominent tables absorbing much of the attention most of the glory and none of the fatigue that should have been equally shared by All. She gayly cried As the As Sembly rang out loud and Clear and waving their hands and raising their Caps the officers hastened to join their commands. Adios till we meet in really think of going to Tite Philippines mrs. Queried a much older looking yet younger Wom an. Why we were told the general said that none of his staff would be allowed to take their yet there Are laughed mrs. Garrison waving a Dainty handkerchief toward the troops now breaking into column of twos and slowly climbing the stage. Who would want to go with that blessed old undertaker Good voyage she cried blowing a loss to the lieutenant at the head of the second troop a youth who blushed and looked confused at the at Tention thereby entered upon him and who would Fain have shaken his fist rather than waved the one unoccupied hand in perfunctory reply. When i go i la choose a ship with a band and Denovc novt nov canal boat As the i thought perhaps your Hus began the lady dubiously but will a significant glance at the silent faces about her. Frank Garrison heavens i Haven t known what it was to have a that poor dear boy went on staff promptly Ansis ered the diminutive Center of attraction a merry peal of laughter ringing under the Dingy archway of the Long Long roof. Why the Portland has Only one stateroom in it big enough for a band Box and of course the general has to have that and there in t a deck where one couple could turn a slow Waltz. No indeed wait for the next flotilla when our Fellows go bands and All. Then Well but surely mrs Garrison we Are told the War department has positively forbidden officer s wives from going on the began her interrogator a Wistful look in her tired eyes. I know i d go e anything to join or. the War department has to take or Ders quite As often As it gives them mrs. Button. The thing is to know How to be of the order giving Side. Of she suddenly cried. Here Are the primes and Amy the regiments must be coming and there s Stanley far up the Westward Street the Dis Tant Roar of voices mingled with the swing and rhythm and crash of martial music. Dock policemen and soldiers on guard began Boring a wide Lane through the throng of people on the pier. A huge Black transport ship Lay moored along the opposite Side to that on which the guns and troopers embarked Ancl for hours Bales boxes and barrels had been swallowed up and stored in her capacious Depths until now Over against the tables of the red Cross there Lay behind a rope Barrier taut stretched and guarded by a line of sen tries an open space close under the Side of the greater Steamer and be tween the to Landing stages placed fore and aft. By this time the North tide of the Broad pier was littered with the inevitable relics of open air lunch ing and though Busy hands had been at work and the tables had been cleared and fresh White cloths were spread and everything on the tables began again to look fair and inviting. The Good fairies themselves looked ask Ance at their be strewn surroundings. Of if we could Only move everything Over to the other wailed Madam president As from her Perch on a stack of red Cross boxes she surveyed that coveted stretch of clean unhampered flooring. And Why chirp used mrs. Gar Rison from a similar Perch a tier or two higher. Here Are men enough to move mountains. All we Hare to do is to Fay the a tit it in replied the other Gac Foff wistfully about Over the throng of faces though in search of come Coffi Cimet in rank and authority to wire her Parrott. We plead in vain with he Hie orders Are allow no one to intrude on that and Madam looked As though she would rather look anywhere than at the Ani mated sprite above her. Thrilled mrs. Gar Rison. Here she called to a pretty girl standing near the base of the pile give me my bag. I m army woman enough to know that order referred Only to the Street crowd that sometimes larks in on the pier and the bag Vias Dull up to her. She cast one Swift glance or the Heads of the crowd to a Haud us Wilc Ai ii.5i Way among the groups of prettily dressed women and and relatives of members of the depart ing commands in whose behalf As though by special dispensation the or Der excluding Sill but soldiers and the red Cross had been modified. Already the Lovely dark eyed girl on the neat Side had waved her hand in greeting responding to mrs. Garrison s enthusiastic signals but her companion equally Lovely though of far different Type seemed preoccupied perhaps tin willing to see for her Large dark thoughtful eyes were engaged with some object on the opposite even with the distinguished looking Soldier who sat facing her and talking quietly at the moment with or. Prime. There was a gleam of Triumph in mrs. Garrison s dancing eyes As she took out a Flat notebook and Pencil and dashed off a few lines in bold and Morous strokes. Tearing out the Page she rap idly read it Over folded it and glanced imperiously about her. A cavalry ser Geant one of the Home troop destined to remain to the Fresi Iii. Leaning Over the Edge of the pier hanging on to an Iron ring and shouting some part ing Nords to comrades on the upper deck but her shrill Soprano Cut through the Dull Roar of deep masculine voices and the tramp of feet on resounding Woodwork. She cried with Quick decision. Take this Over to the officer in command of that guard. Then bring a dozen men and move these two tables across the the Cavalryman glanced at the sauce Little woman in the St tanning costume took in " the Gold crossed sabres topped by a regi mental number in brilliants that pinned her martial Collar at the round White Throat noted the ribbon and pin and badge of the red Cross Antl the Symbol of the eighth corps Iii reel enamel and Gold upon the breast of her jacket and above All the ring of accustomed authority in her tone and All by Tali stifle never hesitated a second. Springing to the pile of boxes he grasped the paper respectfully raised Cap and bored his Stalwart Way across the pier. In three minutes he was a dozen soldiers at his heels. There la you hate pm he asked As the men grasped the supports and raised the rearmost table. Straight across and veil Over to the she answered in the same Crisp tones of command. Then with total and instant change of manner i sup pose your tables should go first Madam she smilingly said. It shall be As you wish about the and the red Cross was vanquished. I said an energetic official a Motti int later leaning Back on her throne of Lemon boxes and fanning her self vigorously for a whole hour i be been trying to move that officer s heart and convince him the order did t apply to us. Stow How the officer must be some personal hazarded the Secre tary with a Quick feminine comprehensive glance at the Little lady now being lifted up to shake hands with the Carriage Folk after being loaded with incl congratulations by the ladies of the two favored tables. Not at was the prompt reply. He is a Volunteer officer she never set eyes on before to Day. I would like to know what was on that paper " but now the Roar of cheering and the blare of martial music had reached the v Ery Gateway. The Broad portals were thrown open and in Blue and Brown crushed and squeezed by the attend ant throng the head of the column of infantry came striding on to the pier. The band Wheeling to one Side stood at the Entrance playing them in the rafters ringing to the stirring strains of the Liberty they were still far Down the Keg pier the Slop ing rifles just visible dancing Over the Heads of the crowd. To time was to lost. More tables were to be car ried but Little army woman could give the order so that it would obeyed. Xot one bit did the president like to do it but something had to be done to obtain the necessary order for the soldiers who so willingly and promptly obeyed her Beck and Call were Bow edging away for a look at the newcomers and mrs. Frank Garrison perched on the Carriage step and chatting most vivaciously with Iti occupants no longer concerning herself apparently about the red Crow or its tables had the gratification of herself approached quite u had two must prominent and distinguished women of san Francisco society and requested to Issue instructions As to the moving of the other tables. Certainly she responded charming smiles. One minute Mildred. Don t drive farther and within that minute half a dozen boys in Blue were lugging at the first of the tables still left on the crowded of the Dock and others still were Bear ing Oil stoves urns and trays. In less time than it takes to Tell it the entire sized Cross equipage was on its Way across the pier and when the Coro o i ,1 j., r. T Ceimet reached the spot which he had planned to occupy with his baud his staff and All his officers there in state and ceremony to receive the citizens who came in swarms to bid them fare Well he found it occupied by As Many As eight snowy Goody Laden presided Over by As Many As 80 Charm ing maids and matrons All ready and eager to Comfort and revive the inner Man of his mighty regiment with cof fee and Good cheer illimitable and the colonel swore a mighty oath and pounced on his luckless officer of the guard. He had served As a subaltern Many a year in the old army and knew How it was done. I give you personal and Posi Tive orders not to let anything or and body occupy this space after the bag Gage got aboard he demanded. You did said the unabashed lieutenant pulling a folded paper from his Belt and the Ped Cross got word to the general and what the red Cross look at tile vol ouch looked Vicau Luu Iii dazed scratched his head and said Well i m then he turned to his adjutant. You were with me when i saw the general last night and he told men to put this guard on and keep this space Clear. 3tow, what d Toxi say to the adjutant glanced Over the pen filed lines. said he. If to u s pose 3153 order that discriminates against the eed Cross is going to held Good once they find it out you re bound to get left. They re feasting the first company new. Sir shall i have it and there was a Grin under the Young Soldier s Mustache. The colonel paused one moment Shook his head and concluded he t of would bet Ter Grin and Bear it. Taking the paper in his hand again he heard his name called and saw smiling faces and beckoning hands in an open Carriage near him. But the sight of Stanley Armstrong signalling to him from an other farther away had something dominant about it. With you in a he called to those who first had summoned him what is it Arm i wish to present you to some friends of old associate col. Stewart. Pardon me mrs. Gar Rison. I did not see you had she had and was once More perched useful Little tool. Excellent for chopping bid All surd feed fruit for the up Altro Yard. not autom Nous.

If the Farmer has not the necessary tools for work ing in Iron the Village Blacksmith Stewart. What need to know. Stewart is this will All your men Board the ship by this stage or will some go All by this but the colonel Felt a somewhat Mas Sive hand crushing Down on his Arm and forbore to press the question. Armstrong let no pause ensue. He spoke rapidly for him bending for Ward too and speaking Low but even As she chatted and laughed the Little woman on the Carriage step saw even though she did not seem to look heard even though she did not seem to listen an awkward thing has happened. The general s tent was robbed of important papers perhaps two Days ago. And the guard House rid of a most important prisoner last night. Canker has put the officer of the guard in arrest. Remember Good old Billy Gray who commanded at Apache this is Billy Junior and i m awfully Here the soft Gray eyes glanced quickly at the anxious face of miss Lawrence who sat silently feigning interest in the Chat Between the others. The anxious look in her eyes gave Way to Sud Deli claim at Armstrong s next words the prisoner must have had he is among your men disguised and those two Fellows at the stage Are de a Low cry came from her lips for mrs. Garrison dropped at the instant and Lay half under the wheels in a death like swoon upon the Dock.

Did you Ever see a Coin 200years of was the reply. I have one myself years said the Driver have and he spoke no More during the rest of the journey.

Allshouse in Ohio Farmer. Belgian Hare craze. a fact it petered oat the poultry Farmer will Stajl do prot male bin Ines. The belgian Hare craze will be a Benefit to poultry men who have the Grace to resist temptation and stick to an established and recognized Industry for whose product there is a consumer s Market because it will re Lieve diem Tiroui me Competition of a great Deal of Energy and capital some part of which would certainly have been devoted to the poultry business. Whatever May finally come of the belgian Hare business at present it is wholly speculative the Only established Market for Hare Stock being with those who wish to raise hares to sell to other people. It will be found that this is by no Means an endless but a Chain which will come to an abrupt end some Day after which the Only Market will be for the meat and the pelts. The Public is not educated to the consumption of Hare meat and there is no More difficult task than to educate the Community to the consumption of a new article of food. The housewife uses eggs every Day and there is a constant de Mand in every family for table fowls in the various stages of their growth. If anyone enjoys raising belgian hares and follows the business for the pleasure there is in it that settles the matter so far As he is concerned and his profit is the fun he has. But As a matter of business common sense should teach anyone thit it is foolish to abandon an Industry for whose product there is an established demand to engage in one for which the Market must be Francisco chronicle. The Fertility of there is a foolish notion prevailing among some fowl breeders that eggs which have been shipped a distance should rest a Day or two before being placed in an incubator s ass the fan Ciers.

Homer the farm. On Many farms on which bees Are not kept there is a splendid Supply of hone3 plants. Among these Are Al Falfa alike. Apples asparagus bean Blackberry Boneset Box elder Buck Thorn stick Rucat Burdock Catnip Cherry red and White Clover Crimson Clover Corn currant Dande lion Golden Rod Gooseberry grape Honey Locust Melon milk wheat Mustard and Many others some of which Are not used for any purpose and Why not let the Honey Bee get value out of them. There is a Choice in.

Regular of it is said that during the Middle n Hen Man was not so humane no or punishment could be inflicted his victims of cruelty than to imprison them and deny them Salt in any form which would insure a slow and excruciating death by reason of the digestive system becoming infested with and parasites and the skin becoming Ulley Vilii cd Upu Oila a Lluc Tui in ers voice. The Domestic animals that Are denied Salt will certainly become diseased and stunted especially so Dur ing the season of the year when they have no Green feed. I am of the Opin Ion that the neglect of regular rational of Salt for the hogs will sooner or later beget a condition that invites germs of Swine plague and of cholera. Rock Salt conveniently placed for the hogs and sheep is better than pulverized Salt for the purpose. Lumps of ten or pounds each placed in the Manger answer As Well for horses As pulverized Salt. Where it is constantly before them there is no danger of them eat ing too much. Cattle seem to require More than other Stock and should have it in the powdered state As they spend Licking from the Lump. Plenty of Salt and All the water Stock need dilute the food and hasten bet Ter assimilation making the Stock to thrive and increasing milk secretion. In mixing Salt in slops of food should be taken not to overdose As too much thus Given is very injurious. Give the Domestic animals plenty of Salt for health s Sake. Improvement 111 Swine. New to conform with Market most be the term improvement is Only rela Tive. There is no such thing As the improvement of Swine in the abstract. When we speak of the improvement of Swine we mean in the relation of the hog to Man. In the relation of the hog to himself there has been no improvement bit rather an absolute deterioration let the human race Dis appear from the Earth at this time and the hog would be in bad shape to survive. At least this would be True of the improved hog. He would fall a prey to hunger for he could Sot Hunt his own food except under the most favourable circumstances if any wild animal got after him he would be unable to fight for his tusks have been bred out. Even As relates to Man the improvement made by generation is not the improvement de sired by another. There was a time when bigness counted for nearly everything in the improved hog.
