E. Riser in Chicago times Herald efforts at Friendship by Kennett f. Harris. seems occasionally to descend p from her magnificent conduct of the affairs of men to what appears to be a miserably trivial spite an incident of which is shown by the interrupted Friendship of a prominent real estate Man and a prominent lawyer both of whom Hare offices within a few blocks of each other on Lasalle Street. It is a circumstance perhaps worthy of passing remark that most real estate men of whom stories have been told have been prominent either at the time of the incident related or at some later period. It is the same Way with lawyers. Various theories Hare been advanced in explanation of this from time to time but it is probable that the real reason has never been discovered. However that May be the real estate Man and the lawyer met for the first time at a Public banquet Early last fall. And instantly made the discovery that they were Kindred spirits. They happened to sit close to one of the doors and after the second speaker had resumed his seat amid wild applause and the enthusiastic was inst of napkins the lawyer said let s Cut this and and the real estate Man answered ill go and they both faded away and materialized three minutes later in the smoking room Low. Then followed a Sweet communion that lasted until Long after the ban queers had dispersed and until the weary waiters yawned cavernous by be Hind their napkins. They found that they had much about the same views of imperialism and single tube tires that their estimates of their mental Caliper of the chairman of the banquet were identical that they had both smoked a certain High priced and praised and widely advertised tobacco and had no use for it in the world that they had encountered the same difficulties in Golf and1 that both had a warm Admi ration for Fra albertus and Kipling. When the lawyer began a quotation from a wind tossed Weed tangle of the seven seas the real estate Man finished it with just the right inflections to denote his sympathetic appreciation. Then they fell to talking of the sad and solemn things of the deep my Terles of mature and being with lights of personal experience and they told the waiter to bring some More of that and discoursed of bygone fish ing and Hunting trips and of fishing and Hunting trips which they hoped to make together in the Roseate future. They looked fondly across the table at one another with the kindly glow of perfect understanding in their eyes and brushed impatiently aside the fragrant smoke wreaths As they drifted Between them As though they had been palpable earners to the Mutual flow of soul. It was a Beautiful thing. When they reluctantly decided that they would Hare to part they Exchange cards and each glancing Down at the one he had received said Why we re near neigh then the real estate Man said whats the matter with taking lunch and the lawyer said there Ain t anything the matter yes there is though my wife s going to do some shopping to Morrow and i promised to take lunch with her. I Ean t go Back on that this time. But then there in t any thing to prevent me calling you up by phone any i could drop in on you or you could Call for me. I la Tell you what i la Tele phone you the Day after to Morrow and Well go out together lawyer said there was Noth ing1 to prevent them from telephoning. As a matter of fact they have been do Fig nothing but telephoning Ever since when they Call upon one an Call in rain. The Kwyer it by telephoning thu Dlug to Promise. A Silvery female Art Sam that the Job Tad to or three o clock. The lawyer that in that Case he would probably Call around at the office about two o clock. He bad just started out with thit Ratett Tion when his stenographer got a phone Call from the real estate Man who announced he had received a sudden summons out of town. The next Day the real estate Man rang up the office. It happened that the lawyer had gone Over to the criminal court building. Gayhea he returned he called up the real estate Man and found that the real estate Man was at a Board meeting. Four unavailing personal Calls were exchanged in the course of the next two then Fate relented or As Busy attend ing 10 Eibe. At Uii the stenographer with the Silvery voice said that or. Campbell was in and would come to the phone and the next moment or. Campbell said old said the lawyer. Sir seem to have been having seme culty in getting together. Where Aro you going to eat lunch any old place. I la eat lunch with you if you ask me. Do you think to could arrange a i doubt said the lawyer. I la invite you but i Don t expect you to come. Saj i wish you would i d like mighty Well to see ill be with you this time All right. I la swear it if necessary. At the same time i Haven t any kind of an idea that i la keep my All you have to do is to stay in the office and attend to your business. I la attend to the rest. Will Yea do ill do a right. the real estate Man stated in the office until he got a Telegram from Liis Friend which read Don t wait for explain then he went Over to the pie counter at the Board of Trade and consumed doughnuts and milk in High dudgeon. The lawyer explained by letter that he had been called away to the bedside of an opulent Uncle in Iowa who had just had his second stroke of paralysis. He made another Effort at an appointment but it was in. A half hearted despairing Way. His Succes Sive failures had unnerved him and left him More than doubtful of for doomed to disappointment. The real estate Man Felt about much the same Way and they both abandoned All attempt at communication for a Mouth or two. Then As the real estate Man was pass ing the lawyer s office he thought would just look in for the fun of it he told himself that he did not expect to see the lawyer and that this being5 the Case there was More than reason life a Rood Punta are5as. What s the matter with Tak ing lunch Able probability that he would be in. He was not in. However and the real estate Man went out bitterly disappointed. He left a note asking the lawyer to Call him up and the lawyer called him up and Learned that he had just this minute gone then the whole thing was gone Over with again. As the matter now stands the two men Are quite intimately acquainted with each other s stenographer. Of it s says the Young Wom an who attends to thereal estate Man s correspondence. Of course i know your voice. To he in t in but i la Tell him to Call you up when he comes in. I know it won t be and Good but we might As Well observe the usual routine. Per haps you d like to Call. Well i really could t say not with any degree of certainty but i d be very glad to see you. No i Don t think you change much As the years go by but then seeing you so often i Frigm rot notice it pcs i la to1 or. Campbell hell be glad to hear from you i know. I d give a great Deal if he could. He Saj s hell raise my salary when he or. Campbell holds similar dialogue with the lawyer s stenographer. Some times he comes in and finds a pencilled note lying on his desk. It is a lunch invitation. He picks it up and glances at the familiar handwriting and then sighs heavily. Seating himself in his swing chair he places his heels care fully on his blotting pad and allows himself to sink into a Mournful reverie that brings Back to him the once familiar face of his Friend of a night. Lineaments of that face Are grow ing hazy and indistinct now. The real estate Man is beginning now to be afraid that he would not know them if he saw them on the Street. And the lawyer is haunted by a is car Chicago daily record. Out Mcca Are the Only town in the Straits of Magellan is punt a Arenas a free port which was formerly a penal Colony of Chili and is now a very important Market and Supply Point for the miners of Terra Del Fuego. The ranch men of Patagonia and for passing steamers save the Chicago record. It has a population of about peo ple representing All the tribes and races of Mankind and it is not Safe to ask a Man where he came from or what his name was before his arrival. The country Back of Punta Arenas is pretty Well taken up with sheep ranches and a Large amount of Wool is shipped to Europe from that place. Although the climate is severe the sheep seem to survive and although uncultivated the Wool is of excellent Quality. A Large Trade is done in furs and skins and the prettiest things to be bought at Punta Arenas Are Ostrich Robes made of the breasts of Young Birds. Seals Are plenty along the rocks of the coast but their fur is not so Good As that of the Northern Yones. In Patagonia ostriches Are not bred As at the Cape of Good Hope but run wild and Are gradually being exterminated. The indians Chase on horseback and catch them with a Bola Hemy balls upon the end of a rope Woven of leather strings. Grasping one Ball in the hand they Gallop after the Ostrich and whirling the other Ball around their head like n Coil of Lasso they let go when near Lett at a Julio Lac i. still revolving in the air if skilfully directed will wind around1 the Long legs of the Ostrich and Send him turn ing somersaults upon the Sand. The Indiana leap from their saddles and if they Are out of meat Cut the Throat of the Bird and carry the carcass to Camp but if they have no need of food they pull the Long plumes from his Tail and wings and let him go again to gather fresh plumage for the next season. The Bolas is handled very dexterously and Well trained indians Are Able to bring Down an Ostrich at a Range of 200 or 300 Yards. But it is not often necessary to fire at that distance. Horses accustomed to the Chase can overtake a Bird on an unobstructed Plain but the Birds have the advantage of being artful dodgers and carrying so much less weight can j turn and reverse quite suddenly. The usual Mode of Hunting is for a dozen or More of mounted indians to surround a Herd and charge upon them suddenly. In this Way several Are usually brought Down before they scatter and. Those that get away Are pursued. As they Dodge from one Hunter they usually run across the Range of another and1 the first they know Are tripped by the entangling Bolas. People passing through the Straits often Stop Over a Steamer at Uii Lui Ai to Uii Osinek Chase. They can secure trained horses and guides tit moderate prices but one who has never thrown the Bolas will be amazed1 to find How difficult it is to do a trick that so easy. Some years ago a Young English lord who went Down to exterminate the Ostrich family came very near be ing lynched for manslaughter As the first Bolas he threw took one of the half Breed guides under the ear and Laid him out As cold As a wedge. His lordship made suitable provision for the family of his and the de ceased Man s partner immediately took up with the bereaved1 widow with omit the formality of a wedding ceremony the Bride and Groom omit Ted the usual period of mourning and appeared to be Inucci gratified at tie results of his lordship s visit. Of course then Ere scandalized but the marriage was useful in divert ing Public attention from the Acci Dent.

Theory that Bobble driven Ivy explode in the body. Physicians in South Africa now have another theory for explaining away the charges made by both Brit on and Boer that the other is using explosive bullets. The extensive laceration often found in Bullet wounds is now said to be due to the air which the Bullet drives before it into the . The of this phenomenon can be proved easily. If a round1 Bullet be dropped into a Glass of water from the height of a few feet it will be seen that when the Bullet touches the Bottom a Large Bubble will become detached and Rise to the surface. In this Case the Bubble will usually be from ten to Twenty times the size of the Bullet says the new York Sun. Kow a Mauser Bullet travelling at High Speed is said to carry before it a Bubble of air of Large dimensions. Experiments made by a surgeon who fired a pistol into a of water showed the Bubble to be a Hundred times the size of the Ball. From the appearance of the wounds and from these experiments it is concluded that the mass of air men by a Mauser Bullet explodes in the body of the wounded Man with sufficient Force to cause extensive laceration. This destructive air Bubble is Well known to under the name of projectile air. A is the Clergyman looking Edith Good look def 1 of Ethel in a Good Creamery sick.

Bringing up calves. Method Here described la intended to the foundation of Strong when i find a calf dropped i do not let it suck the cow once. I feed it milk fresh from the Mother until it is five Days old and then i give it four quarts of milk at a or less according to its warmed to the temperature of new milk or 90 degrees. I teach it to drink by putting two fingers in its Mouth separated a trifle so that the milk May be drawn up easily for otherwise the Little creature would hold its Tongue so tightly to the pal ate that no milk could be suited up at All. After one of these lessons it will sometimes drink fairly Well and almost always after the second or third. If it does not i do not As a Rule consider it Worth raising thus started i increase with the growth of the calf the Quantity of milk and in a fortnight s time i feed that which is not skimmed until 12 hours old. The calf then having attained the age of about eight weeks i give it a handful of crushed Oats or a mixture of Corn meal and bran and augment the ration gradually As the animal grows and needs it. Good Strong healthy sleek looking calves Are the result calves that readily bring five and six dollars apiece when Only three months old. If part of them should be retained however the milk feeding is kept up until they Are six months old. In this Way a waste product is utilized for economically laying the foundation of Strong cows milk being the very Best food for developing the Bone and muscle and the full growth of the vital organs that a Young calf can o.

Why to rate one of fruits that should be generally frown then it is it quince which is nearly always in Good demand for Canning and cells at food prices. Quinces Art not dear As they were years ago when they were held As a monopoly by Farmers in certain sections owing to the belief that Thia tree was easily killed by severe cold weather. This was the fact until it was Learned that this Winter was due to the freezing of the quince roots run near the surface and even the soil Only freezes a few inches deep that freezing to cuts of the Supply of sap that even the slight circulation which exists in All live Trees during cold weather cannot be supplied and the tree cannot be Sayed. It was once thought that quince Trees needed Low wet ground mainly be cause Snow lies Here when it will not on High land unless protected. Where quince Trees Are planted on High and dry soil it should be somewhere near a Fence so that Snow May Bank up against it and protect the Trees. This Snow Protection exposes the quince tree to be injured by mice and if a deep Bank forms around the tree it will break the limbs by crushing them to the Earth. Probably the Best Protection around a quince Orchard a a Row of evergreens whose branches Are so near the ground that Snow will not Drift under them. On dry land the quince roots go deeper and the soil will stand pretty deep freezing without be ing injured. American cultivator. Food for pot plants.
