Telephone call, 48-14^^ Her Soft Soa.p Acquaintance By JamM* Jforfleet Copyright, 1004, by K. M. Whitehead When Farmer James Thompson mortgaged his farm to old John Doan that he might raise money to go into the dairy business he could figure out tbut he had twenty chances of success against one of failure. Inside of three years, however, misfortune had come to him in half a dozen different directions. Most of his herd had perished when his barn had been struck by a thunderbolt, and following that his wife fead dipd and he had fallen and broken 6 leg, There could be only one more calamity in Stprp for him. and that put in an appearance in due time. One day when a letter had come for him he called his daughter Bessie in and sai(T: "Well, it has come. Old John Doan is going to foreclose the mortgage on me, and in a few weeks we shall be homeless. Here's the notice from his man of business." Bessie Thompson was a girl of twenty, li) addition to being good looking and having ft good education, her acquaintances called her a "brick." They said so because she had faced misfortune with a braver heart than her father and had displayed a level head and much shrewdness in trying to stem the tide and extricate him fj-pm his unfortunate situation. She had even takpj} a trip of fifty miles to see old John Doan io person and try to soften his heart, but had only found his agent and been gruffly told that her father must pay up or go. She had expected the blow, and her answer to her father was: "Well, if we can't pay we'll have to go, of course, but we shall be allowed a few weeks' graee, and who knows what may happen In that time?" Something did happen, but it came about in a queer way. Two weeks had passed, and Miss Bessie had started to make soft soap in a big kettle in the back yard. Farmer folks would make soft soap in the spring even though assured that the world would be no more by midsummer, The big kettle had been filled with lye from the beach and a fire started under it, and the hour was 2 o'clock in the afternoon, when Miss Bessie sat down on the back doorstep out of the smoke to think and plan for the future. In the course of a quarter of an hour she was so lost in her thoughts that she was oblivious of her surroundings and was jumped to her feet by hearing a harsh voice saying: "Young, woman, don't you know that kettle is boiling over and wasting the lye?" It "was a man of sixty who had entered the front gate and passed around the house. He was decently dressed, but he was bowbacked and lame, and his snarling, stingy disposition could be read in his face. "I say that the kettle is boiling over," fie repeated as she stared at him and wondered who he could be. "It seems to me that a girl of your age ought to know enough to put a stick across it. Perhaps, though, you've got lye to throw away or you had rather think of marrying some prince than of making soft soap ?" "I—I was thinking"— she stammered. "Yes; I know, but it wasn't about the soap. Young woman, when you have anything on hand attend to it and let castle building alone. Thinking won't bring bread and butter." Miss Bessie walked down to the fire and rearranged it a bit and then laid a stick across the top of the kettle to prevent another accident. While she was doing this the old man sat down on the steps, with a grunt and looked around and muttered to himself. Presently he called to her: "Young woman, is your father at work anywheres about the farm?" "No, sir. Father is in bed with a broken leg." "I s'pose he was doing some fool thing when he broke it?" "He was drawing up wood last February." "Uml Where's your mother?" "Dead." "Um! Who runs the farm?" "I'm doing my best to care for things, - but it won't need anybody long, as we shall soon be leaving." "Got to leave, eh?" he chuckled. "Say, young woman, I'll bet you a hairpin there's a mortgage on this farm. Isn't it so?" "Yes, sir." "And I'll bet another that it's held by old John Doan, the old flint hearted rascal. Come now." "Yes." "I thought so; I thought so. And, of course, he's going to turn you out?" "He wants his money, of course," replied the girl. "Perhaps he has to be hard hearted to prevent people taking advantage of him. If I could see him and tell him just how things have gone with us I believe he would give us a show." "Well, why don't you see him?" "i have tried to, but I had to deal with his agent." "Yes, yes! Um, um! So your father Is in bed with a broken leg and you are trying to run the farm? I see. Can you cook and wash?" "Of course." r "Know enough to milk a cow and do churning?" . . "Yes; quite enough." I "Who makes your clothes?" contin-itied the old man as he looked her up land down. "I do, sir, but why do you ask me these questions? What right have"— 1 "Tuti tut, young woman! It's my way to aak questions, and it should be The western genius who discovered that there is a market for canned jack-rabbit has probably sounded the death knell of the long-legged creature of the prairie.

"Fairly well." "Wonderful young woman—positively wonderful!" he chuckled as he rubbed his hands together. "Another question or two and I'll be going. Of course you expect to get married some day?" "I—I don't know," stammered the blushing Bessie. * "But I do. Of course you expect to, and your chance has .come. What do you say to me? I'm purty nigh sixty, but I'm worth half a million dollars and can buy you silk dresses and velvets and diamonds. Just say the word and we'll be married in a month, and I'}1 save the farm for your father and give him a new start" thanjj you, sir," j*eplied Miss Bessie, with dignity, ,!but I shaii marry for love or not at all." "You are plain of speech, Miss Sauce Box, but I'm not going to quarrel with you. You go your way and I'll go mine, but if you let that soft soap spoil I'll come back and raise a row." A week later Farmer Thompson, who was pialting an effort to hobble about his room, received a letter in an official envelope. He opened it with sinking heart, but next minute he was calling to Bessie. "Here is a discharge of mortgage as a present to me!" he gasped. "Is it possible?" "And hpre is a letter froiq old John Doan, which says that yon are the most sensible girl he ever saw, even to refusing his offer of marriage when you were making soft soap that day. Bessie"— But Bessie had run away to cry. Builneaa Before Pleasure. Tftey "vyepe perfgrmers iji the amateur theatricals. During the progress of the play at one time while their presence was not needed on the stage they sat together behind the scenes. For some time he had been very attentive to her, and, although people had frequently remarked upon his devotion, he had not CQme to tl»e point of proposing. But as they sat behind the scenes he felt that an opportune moment had arrived. "Marie," he said, "you may not have perceived my liking, but I cannot delay. I—I want to ask you to—to—be"— Jugt then the projnpter called the girl's name, but she never stirred. "That's your cue," faltered the interrupted lover. • "Yes," she answered calmly enough, laying her hand on his arm, "but never mind the cue. You seemed very earnest just now, and I want you to go on. What were you going to say?" Start of an Iowa Lawyer. An Iowa lawyer tells the following story of his first months of practice. He went to a small country town and secured an office room, in front of which was placed the usual sign. Then he sat down and waited for bis clients to appear, all the while feeling very much the dignity of his position. The day passed, and no one called, and another and another, until weeks went by, and still there had been no client. One morning, however, he was at the depot to attend upon the arrival of the daily accommodation train, quite an important function of the town, when a handsome, well dressed young lady approached and inquired, "Is this Mr. Smith?" At once the feeling of Importance returned, and in his blandest tone he replied: "It is, madam. What can 1 do for you?" "Can you tell me how much it will cost to send a sow and pigs down to the next station T'—Green Bag. The Peaeli. Peaches are a tonic, an aperient, a food and a drink combined, or, to put it briefly, they are meat and medicine. A good meal may be made on cut peaches with cream and sugar, bread and butter. After a meal of this variety a person will feel more like attending to the duties of the afternoon than if he or she indulged in heavy foods. Peaches are good before breakfast and after dinner. They are good for the digestion, good for the blood and good for the complexion. Some people eat them without cream or sugar and with good results. The fruit is so rich in sugar and acid that it preserves its flavor a long while, but to get the full benefit it should be eaten as soon as it is cut • Redness of the nose due to congestion, inflamed complexions, scrofulous and bilious tendencies are said to be materially influenced by a liberal consumption of this luscious fruit The Thrifty Piedmontese. In character the Piedmontese are very unlike the popular conception of the Italian people. As a class the peasants are sober, industrious and thrifty. The following instance of the thrift of the peasants has in it a touch of pathos. On one occasion, having given a cigar to a boaro (herdsman), I found afterward that the precious weted had lasted the recipient a whole month, a few whiffs only being taken after the evening meal, and then it was carefully laid aside till the next evening. Whether the custom which still obtains In some parts of Piedmont of regarding the harmless, necessary domestic cat as a delicate morsel is to be put down to thrift or merely to a perverted appetite is doubtful, but it is well known that to fiil the pot-au-feu of a Piedmontese peasant is the usual fate of wandering or homeless felines.—Eustace Reynolds-Ball in Chambers' Journal. James G. Blaine, 3d, is about to carry out his wish to try farming, his mother having bought a farm for him on Block Island. ^ ^ ^ Williams' Boot Beer served in thin glasses, iced, is dainty enough for a queen. It always pleases. _ ^ jgr Clever Detective Work. A distinguished surgeon, who was also a detective in embryo, was called to perform an operation upon a man who had been shot by an unknown assassin. The position of the man and the mystery of the shooting rendered the case notorious. The man was unconscious at the time of the operation, and nothing could be obtained from him. When the doctor examined the wound, he said to his assistant: "A pistol has been fired at him by a person who Is left handed." While he was explaining the reasons for his conclusion Mr." 's partner, a Mr. X., entered the room. Something about his manner attracted the attention of the eminent surgeon, and he whispered to his colleague: "If that man were left handed, I should at once suspect him of the crime." The next instant he turned to X. and said: "Will you kindly hand me that lint?" X. did so, using his left hand. The man died. X. was accused of the murder and upon being tried and condemned confessed Jils guilt. Enforced Church Attendance. In the reign of Edward VI. an act was passed which provided that every one "shall diligently and faithfully, having no lawful or reasonable excuse to be absent, endeavor themselves to their parish church or chapel accustomed, or, upon reasonable let, to some lieua} place where common prayer shall be used—on Sundays and holidays— upon penalty of forfeiting for every nonattendance 12 pence, to be levied by the church wardens to the use of the poor." As the years rolled on, however, the penalties for nonattendance became more and more severe, qqt}} in Elizabeth's reign such harsh legislatioq as the following was passed: "All persons who do not go to church or chapel or other places where common prayer is said according to the act of unifox-mity shall forfeit £20 per month to the queen,, being thereof lawfully convict, and suffer imprisonment until paid.," An Eastern Tale. "In many cases," says Sir John Lubbock, "religious differences are mainly verbal. There is an eastern tale of four men—an Arab, a Persian, a Turk and a Greek—who agreed to club together for an evening meal, but when they had done so they quarreled as to what it should be. The Turk proposed azum, the Arab aneb, the Persian an-ghur, while the Greek insisted on sta-phylion. While they were disputing— "JJefore their eyes did pass, Laden with grapes, a gardener's asa. Sprang to his feet each man and showed. With eager hand, that purple load. 'See azum,' said that Turk. 'And see Anghur,' the Persian. 'What should b® Better?' 'Nay, aneb, aneb 'tis,' The Arab cried, The Greek said, 'This Js my gtaphyllon.' Then they bought Their grapes in peace. Hence, be ye taught." The Tibetan Bible. The Kahgyur, or Tibetan bible, consists of 108 volumes of 1,000 pages each, containing 1,083 separate books. Each of the volumes weighs ten pounds and forms a package twenty-six inches long, eight inches broad and eight inches deep. This bible requires a dozen yaks for its transport, and the carved wooden blocks from which it Is printed need rows of houses, like a city, for their storage. A tribe of Mongols paid 7,000 oxen for a copy of this bible. In addition to the bible there are 225 volumes of commentaries, which are necessary for its understanding. There is also a large collection of revelations which supplement the bible. To Preserve Cut Carn«tlon>. To prevent that premature bursting of the calyx which so often injures the appearance of several varieties of carnations, especially the cut blooms, turn down the calyx of each blossom and slip beneath it close to the base of the sepals and quite out of sight a tiny collar of soft silk or cotton thread. Tie and cut off the ends of the thread, then turn the calyx back to its natural position, smoothing it carefully over the thread collar, and the flower will retain its perfect shape until it fades and dies.—Ladies' Home Journal. Ivy Poisoning?. Country Life says that all the drugs In the world will not prevent a bad case of poisoning from poison ivy or sumac unless one does something as soon as the telltale itching begins. When the pustules break open, there is nothing to do but" "grin and bear it" The remedy advised is extract of grindelia, which should be always kept in the house. Rub on the affected parts every five minutes till the trouble is averted. Her Girlhood War*. "You must not expect me to give up my girlhood's ways all at once," said the happy bride. "Oh, I won't," he replied. "I hope you'll keep right on taking an allowance from your father just as if nothing had happened."—Superior (Wis.) Telegram. " Her Revenge. First Woman—What did your husband bring home from his visit to the city? Second Woman—Two silver spoons for the children, and I was so mad at his extravagance that I went straight down to the store and bought me a new dress.—Cleveland Leader.

These Are Clearing Days for
All Summer Coods.
Everything that belongs to summer must be cleared
out, to make way for fall stocks. Therefore some large
lots'and a great many small lots of summer, goods are
now being sacrificed. In addition, we have bought some
desirable lots of standard merchandise below market
value. All these, in combination with our August Sales
of Furniture and Linens, make this the best time in the
