Behind her cabaret singers brayed through their songs. A squad of lively violins shrieked and scraped. Now and then the dancers twisted and writhed their way through the narrow aisles and the men and women at the tables sat \up a. little straighter and bought more wine.

Her cheeks had not lost that curve which persists until ma- turity is reached. Her eyes were big and round, and she watched the scene with far more of interest than she gave to her table mates. Now and then the thick-nosed man with her de- manded her attention, and she gave him a perfunctory glance and smile. She drank her wine with an avidity which betokened inexperience.

T Horticulturists visiting\ Holland bring back tales of how “Dutch bulbs\ are grown for the world in the land reclaimed from the Zuyder Zee. The soil is sandy, superb in drainage and naturaly poor, but proper handling has. made it a. rich one. After reading of the Holland methods, the writer has this year produced tulips 't\h71t are'i‘e\c'-'\ 0nd to none, some being more than two feet imheight and very robust with large The method of care is herein given in the hope that some who have given up hope may be able to grow these beautiful to a satisfying‘ degree of excellence. Many other lots have been visited theft’ are very where the care and culture hasbeen very similar to that followed by the writer. The two strong points in growing. good tulips are deep planting and plenty of water. To provide good! drainage (a supposed essential) the writerwdug~outeaebed~to~the~depth~«ot 18 inches, mixing the soil with some sand and one-fourth horse manure that contained a large per cent of planing- mill shavings, used for bedding. This was replaced and trodden down until within six. inches of the surface. Then a mixture was made of one-half good garden loam, one-fourth sand, and one-' fourth pulverized sheep manure. _.The soil was smoothed on the bottom 01' the bed, one inch or this special soils placed evenly over the surface, the tulip bulbs placed upon it and the bal- ance oi.’ the special soil placed on top. After being wetted down it was about six; inches from the surface to bottom of tulip bulbs.

Then they saw the child her eyes glazed with drink, hare ly able to stand upon her feet, her hat awry, her coat open above her tawdry little bodice, with its deeply scored V at the neck, being led down the aisle, a Walter on either side; The door was opened and she was thrown out upon the «street. Before the iiouble leaves of the door closed those sitting within caught a glimpse of the long gray shafts of rain, slanting downward under the glare. of are lights, hissing into the puddles ga.th- ered on the gleaming cobbles. “These are the best cherries I've tasted for years,” he told the cher- ries’ owner. “I beg your pardon.

The jar was a good-sized one, but by the time the man -had reached his dessert course the bottom layer of fruit was uncovered. Twice Miss Ar- mor tried to get her property into her own keeping,*but both times the agreeable stranger helped her. to a small taste and kept the jar out of the clutch of her anxious hands. Finally she settled back in her chair to wait ,until he was gone, when she_ meant to tell that snickering waitress what she thought of her, and to carry 0:! at least the remnants of her precious preserves; but only the former satis- faction was permitted her. When the transient man got his pudding he scraped the bottom layer‘ of cherries otft‘-on tofp'4of it, and said with a sigh Df“anticipatio_n: _ ‘ Year, $“l.OO Read the Terms Set Forth Real High Jumpers In Africa. The sensation caused by George Horine, the Stanford university stu- dent, who has been smashing high- jumping records, calls to mind the high jumping seen recently by the duke of Mecklenburg during a. trip. through the German East African pro- tectorate. An account of it is given in the Geographic Magazine. The jumpers were oi!.the Watussi tribe, \a. tall, well-made people, with an alv most ideal physique,\ their stature ranging» from “ feet eleven and a half inchesto seven feet two and 8. half inches.\ The exactness of the ures indicates that the duke did not depend on guesswork and estimate. In any case, the Watussi can jump in proportion to their height—the best performer cleared eight feet and inches. Even the Watussi “kids” got over the bar at a height of feet. The conditions are thus described by the duke: “A line which could be_ raised or lowered at will was stretched between two slender trees standing on an incline. The athletes had to run up to this and -jump from a small termite heap a. root in height.\ But the termite heap’s the rub: a foot oi: the record, that means. Still the Germans ought to send post haste to the We.- t_ussl country for a couple of high jumpers and include them in their Olympic team. was placed around the bed so that when given 8. liberal watering the water could stand two inches deep be- fore soaking down, which latter it did very rapidly. Then three inches of fresh stable manure was placed on top fora mulch and the bed was heavily watered, when no rain fell, twice each week. ‘The tulips so produced were second to none in local gardens. They were all singles, of the Gesneriana. type. Those in one bed inspected that were especialy were placed the same depth as herein noted, in almost pure adobe, covered with four inches of manure and kept well watered. Lack oi.’ drainage did not seem to at- fect them adversely. To sum up, the two chief points are deep planting and heavy watering. Below and Extend Your Subscription.

After the wedding ceremony the happy couple had escaped from their relations and friends and ordered 9. good lunch. When the dessert was served, a hand- some young woman walked up to the bridegroom and accused him oi jilting her, and also of taking 9. large sum of money from her by false promise of marriage‘. On the bridegroom attempt- ing to excuse himself his former sweet- heart became angry and thrashed him in the restaurant, tak1ng\'a.way his money‘, watch and chain, and even his new. wedding ring. Then she _com- manded him to follow her to the near- est police station, where she repented her accusations, and on the bride- groom confessing to the facts he was formally‘ arrested.

Even in the Heart of the Crowded Metropolis These Beauty Spots Are to Be Found. School gardens, for some years a. feature of education in smaller towns, have at last taken root in New York. Even in the heart of crowded Man- hattan it has been found possible to turn a bit of the school yard into 8. garden and there to let the children grow and vegetables. In some schools each class has its plot, in others there was enough room to provide a plot for each child, but this, except in the rural outskirts, is rare. In one school, where it was impossible/to raise plants from the earth, a goodly part or the cement- paved playground was given over to boxes which afforded a home for growing plants. There is a large so- ciety, called the School Garden 513-- sociation, of which :he president is Van Evrie Kilpatrick, principal of P. S. No, 52. The photograph printed herewith shows one of the classes of P. S. No. 54, Manhattan, at Amster- dam avénue and One Hundred and Fourth street, working its little gar- den» patch.

China a Market for Jelly A very pro industry in Chosen on a new line has been suggested by the authorities of the section of the government-general. It is the tor ;elly so abundantly found in the seas of West Chosen. While the sea offers much obstruc- tion to the industry in general, as its presence in 1arge‘i‘u1as&rorten makes the use of nets impossible and sometimes compels ! to aban- don their work, the itself yvill bring in a large amount of money it caught, properly prepared and export- ed to China for cooking purposes.

Music has long been notoriously a. provokex‘ of discord.

I even ‘believe that the horrors of high- ly embellished ottertories have done much: to tighten purse strlngsi and deaden generous impulses. The pres- ence behihd the pulpit of a languid quartet praising Gad on behalf of. the bored ‘sinners in the pews has always seemed to me the profanest of anom- alies. i1\\1or has long contemplation of vested choirs in Episcopal churches shaken my belief thatchurch music should be an affair of the congrega- ‘tion.—--Meredith Nicholson in the Ab- lantic Monthly.
