Th^re was a red-headed, freckled peasant boy, Jn dirty petticoate, who guided Bass and Myself to the trenchea He was one of the few peasants who had not run away, and as he had driv- en sheep over every loot of the hlllfi he elected to guide the soldiers through those places where they were best pro- tected from the. bullets of the enemy He did this all day, and was always, whether coming or going, under a heavy fire; but he enjoyed thnt fact, and he seemed to regard the battle only as a delightful change in thejjuiet rou- tine of hia life, as one of our own country boys at home would regard the doming of the spring circus, or th€ burning of a neighbor's barn. He ran dancing ahead of us pointing to where a ledge of rock offered «. natural shel- ter, or showing us a steep gully wliere the bullets could not fall. When they came very near uim he would jump high in the air, not because he was startled, 'but out of pure animal Joy in the excitement of it, and be would Crown importantly and shake hie red curia at us, as though to say: \I told you to be careful. Now you eee. Don't let that happen again.\ We met him many times during the two days, «*a»orting different companies of sol- diers from ene point to another aa though they were visitors to his estate. When a shell broke he would pick up a piece and present it to the officer in charge, on though it were a flower he had plucked from his own garden, und which he wanted his guest to carry away with him as a souvenir of~*hJ3 visit. ' Some one asked the boy if hit father and mother knew where he was and he replied with amusement that they had run away and deserted him and that he had remained because he iviehed to look at a Turkish army rie was a much more plucky boy than the overrated Casabianca, who may havo stood on the burning deck whence all but him had fled because he could not swim, and because it was with him a :hoice ot being either burned or drown- pd. This boy etuck to the burning deck when it was possible for him at any time t^> have walked away and left it turning But he staid on because he was unused, and because he was able ten help the soldiers from the city in safety across his native hpath.—From \With tho Greek Soldiers\ by Richard Hard- ing Davis, in Harpar's Magazine far November.

The added fame which the actress acquired in -posing for the Montana statue of solid silver exhibited at the world's fair in 1893 is to be approached, if not eclipsed, by the President of the United States, who will furnish the figure of a life-tsized statue ^f solid gold This will be the most c ally lump of precious metal the people of the mod- em world have ever seen So ba>s F. D. Higby, of Chicago, who has Lee 11 re- tained by western millioiianes to furn- ish such a statue for exhibition at the Paris expceitiou in 1900. «lr. Higby v/as in New York city Thursday on hio way to Washington to get the consent rf 1'iesident McKinJey to pose for the ft'g'iire. As Mr Higby took a prominent part in the headquarters management \f the Ute i.f«.t.oiia. J . Republican campaign and has asked for uo office, he is con- fident of the success in this mission. 'You know,\ said Mr. Higby, ihat I debigiKd and built the Montana e-taiuo al the \\s rld'e lair, for which \d.i lie han pct-ed I suppose it was be-aiicsa of my experience that 1 have boon re- tained to build this statue, which, v,ifa tbc base, .will be about seven feet in aeight. and will contain bullion to the amount of $1,050,000. \While it was designed primarily to first exhibit the statue at Paris n 1900, the directors of the Pan-American ex- position, to be held m Cayuga Island, in the Niagara river, in 1S99, aie anx- ious to have it completed in tune to <'v- hibu there first. It is likely that this an augment will be made. \I cannot divulge as yet who the cap- italists are who are back of the piojert, but there are half a dozen of them, and evei>thing is ready to begin work on the statue as soon as a design is com- pleted.\ SONG SAVED H»6 LIFE. Anrrdoleof 1'clcr I lie (ireut. While traveling in Russia, Peter the Jreat had to tak« refuge in the monas- tery from the inclemency of the weath- ei. The monks received\him with the ^leatest humility and deference, and prepared a banquet for him. One of the young monks presented the mon- arch with a large glass goblet of wine. The young monk stumbled, the goblet It-ll to the floor aud was shattered into a thousand p;eces, while most of the stomachic disturber went down the ua< k of PeUr's neck. Furious with rage, Peter the Gioat sprang to his feet and raised his wip, without which he never went out, and was about to ilagellate the monk sever- al consecutive times. The monk, how- ever, folding his arms with dignity, addressed the Czar as follows. \My lord and Czar, not drop by drop but with in a perfect gush, are God'3 precous gifts poured over thee. May all thy enemies come to grief even as th:a glass has been shattered to pieces.' Peter the Great was disarmed In- stead of laying the goard on the monk's back, he made a motion to lay it on the table, which was carried unanimously. He also appointed the young monk Arehimandritten of Patscherky, which was the least he could do under the oncumstances.

As they sang the last hymn, \Jesus Lover of My Soul,\ on* of them heard an exceeding- ly rich and beautiful voice beTiind them. He looked around, and, al- though he did not know the face, he thought that he knew the voice. So wihen the music ceased he turned and asked the man if he had been in the civil war. The man replied that he had been a Confederate soldier. \Where J^ou at such a place on such a night?\ Yisked the first. \Yea he replied, \and a curious thing happened that night which this hymn has recalled to my mind. I was posted on eentry duty near the edge of a wood. It was a dark nigjht and very cold, and I was a little frightened be- cause the enemy were supposed to be very near. About midnight, when every- thing wae still, and I was feeling home- sick and miserable and weary, I thought that I would comfort myself by praying and singing a hymn. I re- member singing this hymn: \All my trust on Tlhee is stayed All my help from thee I bring; Cover my defenseless head With the shadow of Thy wing.\ \After singing that a strange peace came down on me, and througih the long night I felt no more fear.\ 'Now,' 6aid the other, \listen to my stoiy. I was a Union soldier, and was in the wood that night with a party of scouts I saw you standing, al- though 1 did not see your face. Mj men had their rifles focused upon you waiting for the word to fire, but when you sanp out: \Cover my defenseless head With the shadow of Thy wing,\ I eaid 'Boye, lower your rifles; we wil! go home.' \ —The Presbyterian.

It has been definitely ascertained thru the piper who played the \cork o' the north\ after being shot through both legs was not Piper Milne, but his comrade and fellow Aberdonian, Piper Findlater. The mistake arose in Lon- don when the particulars about the in- jured mem were being given to a re- porter. Milne was also among thoea who were wounded. Piper George Fiuderiek Findlater is a native of Tur- nff, Aberdeenshire, where his father had a croft and was a meal miller. The piper was born in 1872, and is one of a family of six sons and five daughters. He received his education at the village school, and. like most countiy children left the schoolmaster'f; hands at an ear- ly age and entered farm service. He 60in evinced a desire to 1 erome a sol- d cr, but his parents objected, and f->r some time nothing further was heard of his martial de^ire^ After a couple of years as a farm servant lie enlisted at Aberdeen in 18S8. Private Findlater bbowed a fondness for music at an ear- Jy age, and shortly after enlistment commenced the study of the bagpipes In the beginning of last year he was pion.nted to the rank of piper in the band of the regiment.—Scotch Paper. Diiitnntic Mode or Execution. A Leipsic inventor has devised an ex- tn-mely dramatic mode of execution for criminals, which possesses the ad- d,' onnl advantage of being painless. The machinery consists of a platform rn.c meters square, approached by five steps In the center of the platform is a chair for the condemned man. Be- hind it stands a figure of Justice, h >ld- ing a pair of scales in her left hand,, the scalps being movable. Under the platform is placed an electric battery, from which wires pss through the- legs of the chair into the seat and back leiinniatiug in platinum plates. If the patient objects to seating himself iu the chair he is simply tied in Then, alter the sentence has been read, the e\<c utioner takes a stick, breaks it, imi places the pieces in one of Justice's scako. This descends, puts the battery in motion, and ende the matter. Death is instantaneous and paiulesb.

They could all talk well if they wished, but often they did not care to do so. Breakfast, a try- ing meal under the most cheerful cir- cumstances was a season of funeral BOlmmty in this home. When the fam- ily descended from their various sleep- ing apartments to the dining room they greeted one another and their guests with a polite \Good-morning.\' After that, except for the necessary \Will you?\ and \Thank you,\ silence re , .- ed. At first I, as guest, made Fjvcral mme efforts to talk, but I soon became discouraged, for when I discontinued my feeble attemps no one else spoko. The eldest daughter one day explanied the state of affairs to me after this fashion: \I suppise you think that we talk very little at breakfast, but as a family we do not feel conversationally inclined early in the morning; and ag our house is Liberty hall each one does as he or she pleases. Perhaps some people like to talk before they are fairly awake. We hate it!\ Until that visit I had never appreci- ated what a gloomy function a silent meal is. Amid all the elegance that surrounded me in that houae my heart ond thoughts turned longingly to a little home hundreds of miles away, where there was an unspoken rule that each member of the household should unselfishly try to make things pleasant for every Mther member. I remembered the sunny breakfast room and the free unlabored conversation, the merry jest and innocent laughter. And I then de- ci.led. with a homesick yearning, that bilence is more to be deplored than la talkativeness. Neither is the individual who will not talk a pleasant person to meet in t-coiety. A bore has been defined as a man who taks so much about himself that he gives you no chance to talk about yourself. But a still greater bore is the man who will not talk about himself or anything else, but makes the person with whom he is supposed *.o bo talking carry on the entire con- versation. It is better to talk poorly (han not to talk at all. and the natuial- ly silent person should in youth be trained to overcome his uncommuni- cative tendencies. He who takes all ,md gives out nothing in the way of conversation is eveu more selfish than hp man who so loves the sound of his own voice that be gives other people no opportunity to hear theirs. Silence is nothing less than a gross form oi selfishness, and an unresponsive person is sure to bo a rude one. Tilt- WUIIII'K Oldest I.i vide Wo num. Centenarians aro becoming cheap.

The Reiult of the Engineer Giving a Man Kmployinent. •\Wo were coming East with the faat express,\ said the engineer, \and my fireman got slok. I pitied the poor fel- low, and told him to get up on my aid* and run the engine and 1 would keep up the fire. We did not want to fall behind time, but the train wae a he*y one, and the engine, which was a big ten-wheeler, appeared too be working poorly, so that no matter how we tried to keep her hot she went back on us and before we got to F—^ were fifteen minutes late. After leavlag F— I weni back to get things ready to take water at the next plug and found a grizzly- bearded fellow stealing alrlde on the ; blind baggage car. He looked at me a* ! if anticipating an order to get off at j the next stopping place, and- I looked at him, perhaps ea\agely, and eoon gave him the expected order. ! \ 'All right, pard, 1 he said, in-a good I humored way, 'I^im only trying to get I to P—' and will leave you, but would I be glad to Jo something to work my j way .' \ 'What can you do?' I asked. \ 'Well, sir,' he answered, 'I can flre that engine of yours, if you will give me a chance.' \We needed an extra fireman real badly just at that time, and I said to him 'Get up, then, and let me see what you can do.' \The grizzly- bearded man came up. and the way ho mounted the tank and bal?need himnelf on the coal ana swung down iuto the cab gave me some confidence in the fellow. He took up the scoop at once, opened the fur- nace door, and examined the flre crit- ically. Then he began to break up coal and mix it with smaller particles, after which tie threw In four or five» shovelfuls, scattering it with a profes- sional fling of the scoop. Then he clos- ed the door with a bang, put the sroop. an the proper place, examined the steam and water gauges, and took a seat behind the sick fireman. Before we had gone half a mile he was down again carefully feeding in coal Before the next mile had been reeled off the engine was steaming nicely, and, al- though I was pushing her hard ou a slight opposing grade, the steam kept around the 150 notch. Our tramp fire- man watched the steam and smoke as it left the stack and kept his eyp on the furnace fire, and we saw at once that we had picked up a professional. My fireman offered the stranger his dinner bucket, which had not been touched, nnrt, after feeling' the bottom of the part that contained coffee, he shook it a 'little and *et it just where I would have put if for the same purpose, and then, while he waited for it to get warm, he carefully looked over his flro and put in some more coal. \The old fireman and I were getting interested, and I think that the con- ductor must have noticed that we had struck a ucw gait, but he did not know the, cause. I looked at the sick fireman and he looked at me and then we both gazed rpsppctfully at the stranger, who *vaa eating as though he had endured i long fast. I kept thp throttle almost wide open, with the engine well hooked up to the high speed notch, and the way we went up that hill and down the next was a caution to the freight crews we passed along (he way. When we reached the distant signal at the X power I found it all right and just then the new fiieman, who was also yn the alert, cried out. 'White block,' and came down to put in some more/ coal. The home signal happened to be on his side of the curve, and he knew his duty, and had the proper words In his mouth before I could see what kind of a light we were to get. \Well we made thf> run for the re- mainder of the stretch of 120 miles dead easy, and gained seven minutes besides, and when we got to the towor nea,r the depot we were right on the fiot. It was something: unusual for our train to get In on time, as it waa a very heavy one, and on that particu- lar night we had an extra car, and did not know that the Superintendent was on board until the next morning, when he complimented me on the splendid run I had made. \Iu the meantime I had provided the stranger with enough cash to pay for his bed and breakfast, and asked him to come around and see me before he started for P—. Sure enough, he did come around and, as he had washed up and got a clean shave, he looked like a different man. I questioned him about his previous career, and he talk- ed like a gentleman, and showed ma recommendations aa fireman and en- gineer which had hpen written by tho superintendents of some big roads. He explained that his last unfortunate move was voluntary, to get away from some Bwcll-headpd minor officials who ha 1 no use for a decent man unless ho was lauding them eternally to the skies. \ \I could not flatter such people,' he ••a d; 'they deserved to be kicked; hut I cave onp of them an uppercut under the law ipd tnr>k it for granted that It wab bc.'-t for me tp hunt for a new job, 1 say I d'd this voluntarily, because J did not have to hit the chump, but. hit hmi for the sake of some of the other men who had been his victims so long. But had luck befell me, I got sick, lost mv monrvy, and had to try to beat my way to P—, where I have friends.' \ 'Would you acept a job firing now If I could get you one?' I asked. \ 'Yes,\ he answered, 'I would be willing to do anything to get a little money. 1 \I had learned that my fireman would not be able to report for duty, and I went to the superintendent's of- fice and asked him if he would permit me to recommer-d a fireman for thai week. \ 'Certainly, sir,' was the answer. 'You are entitled fo such a privilege after the good work you have been do- ing.' \Well I took Edmunds with me (that was the tramp fireman's name), and. he performed wonderful work with the scoop and I hated to let him go, but tfhe superintendent heard of my wind- fall, and before a week Edmunds waa running a freight engine, and now he is hauling the limited express, and one of the best runners on the road. \I have pioked up lots of tramps sin.ee then, but never found one of them worth the heat he obtained from the furnace flre, but whenever I see some poor fellow shivering on the bumpers I think of Edmunds, who Is now my best friend, and try to help the pilgrim along.\—Chicago Inter-Ocean.

The philosopher who said that all things come to him who waitB might have added that the man .who goes after them gets them much quioker. There is a discussion, going on through dairy and agricultural press, and among the medical fraternity and health boards in cities and States, re- gard iug the^proper standard of milk Tho majority of legalized milk stand- ards, we believe, are from ?, to 35 percent, of butter fat, uith a total amount of solids of 12 to 1:3 per cent. A milk that will test below these standards is considered in the eyes of the law adulterated. A'ow thut than in a fair average, the majority of milk and creamery men and factor \'men can testify from the tests made in thous- ands of cases aud their own experi- ence. But that milk with a lower per- centage of fat, or solids may be adult- erated or Ls adulterated doos not nec- essarily follow. Now how will this matter be remedied so that the pro- ducers and the consumers will both be fairly tr^atod in regard to valua- tion of their product as Hollorx and buyers. The question of pure food is one that is coming to the minds' of both State nnd national legislators and there must be some method for de- termining the punty of what we cut or drink so that neither thu producers nor the consumers will be injured by insisting on those standards being considered the rulo Medical men say that milk with three per cent, of fat and 12 to liM per cent total solids is more nearly a perfect food than when the solids are in auy other pro- portion. This being the ruse, why should not u man who c e dairy herd produces milk wath 4 to 5 pel cent be paid a better pi ice and thf consumer pay a larger price, so that they both shall be dealt with fanly. If the time can come when our milk trade shall be handled upon the basis of paying the producers their value in the solids ami the consumer aNo pay- ing for the extra value in the solids, if he receives it, will go a long wa\ to- ward solving the milk question to the benefit of both producers and con sinners.—/JV////* Dairy fScporf. Bn»' VHIUP of Mitii'i The amount and valuer of the ex- crements, mixed or unmixed with bedding, which are produced by dif- ferent classes of farm auimaN m given lengths of time when fed on varied amounts and kinds of food, have been determined so often and with such painstaking accuracy that full reliance can be placed on the results. While it is true that, the three elements of chief value iu manures and annual exeretneuty nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash—are not so available as they are in skillfully manufactured commercial fertilizers, yet they aie usually computed at commercial prices, for there should be some con- venient and uniform standard upon which to base comparisons and which to make calculations. On the other haud nianmesjurnish uvailablo hum- us, and a mulch if they ar« spread up- on the hnrface, and they also tend to increase the water-holding power of the soil, and to i>upro\e its texture or or physical condition. Jn many cases it is believod that these benefits aie ft full equivalent for the leas soluble character of the fertilizing constitu- ents of nwnures as compared wit 1 : commercial fertilizers. When the soil has a reasonable amount of easily available plant food, it is probable that such may be the case, but the ultimate welfare of phmts depends so much on a healthy, vigorous start aud abundant root development that the more quickly-acting commercial fer- tilizers may be more valuable than tho slower-acting farm manures. * * * One thing is certain, that the careful husbanding of farm manures, p,nd the application of th«iu in reasonable quantities in almost aii3 T form, result? in improved fertility and increased profits in the final outcome —Pntf. Robert*. Value of Ihe Sh< • p P. II The value of a sheep pelt, and in fact any other pelt or hide, is, of course, determined to a great extent by tho manner iu which it is removed. Many times, however, a sheep may be properly skinned, yet the pelt be way off in value on account of poor hand- ling. As spon as the pelt is removed spread it out on the barn floor and cover with salt, using from three pints to half a gallon. Leave it spread and salted for a day or two, when it can be thrown over a beam or pole. The rats will seldom touch a properly salted pelt. The pelt should, of course, be kept in a dry place. If pelts are roll- ed up as soon as salted and left in that shape longer than twenty-four hours, they will shrink up and de- stroy their good appearance and size, which goes a long way in determin- ing the price received. Pelts can be tacke,d to tho inside of a building, of iirBe tacking only the edges, instead of being hung over a beam or pole. Until tbe wool has grown to' be about three-quarters of an inch long the skin £s worth as much as the wool that is on it, Wool o{ ihiB length . is classed aa shoddy. The pelts of sheep dying in tho winter are therefore worth more than those removed from animals killed earlier in the Beason. D IRECTORY, CHAELES A.BURKE LAWYER.

Cook it sjowly and not very long in the water n which it has been Boaked. This process brings out the real fresh ruit'flavor better than auy o^her. French dairymen are complaining pf the incrpaaing importations of cp- COa bntter ; which is threatening to displace not only the genuiup article, but also oleo. The latter has been largely manufactured in France, but it seems that even a cheaper suhsti ute has been put on the market, so that butterine now has a rival to meet on its own level.
