I cried iu despair, /"I do not say so, my son, but un- der the chaperonage of an ambitious mother, and possessed of a mercenary nature herself, she might seek for a husband who holds high office, or 1~ possessed of great estates.'

"'I do not understand you, mother, for though I knew my father t~ have died in good circumstances, I had yet to learn that his fortune was among the first of the land." "My mother read my thoughts, and, drawing nearer, she said: "'I have at least one agreeable sur- prise for you, my poor soy, and one that makes my burden less hard to bear. Your father's last inheritance has been returned to you, and I have word through my solicitors that a rec- onciliation is being arranged between our family and your father's,, which I ham with great Joy on your account.' "Then, throwing her arms around mY neck, she sobbed silently 'for a few moments. 'And now. my son. go an~ see Helen. Tell her nothing of this, and then, if you find her true, bring her here as your bride--if false, com.~ hastily back to me. for 1 shall count the hours that part us.'" Here I paused and tried to collect my thoughts, for many years- had passed, and the sad scenes I was now repeating seemed like some horrible dream, dreamed long ago---confused. but not forgotten, clinging to ~y memory like a shadow. Valdermere sat silently attentive to every word, nodding here and there as some passage in my story called for his approval or disapproval. "You went to Rome?" he said. "Yes, I made hasty preparations, and accompanled only by my moth- er's blessing, I started ou my Journey, carrying mY heart, my soul and my life, to place in the hands of the wom- an whom I had loved with the love of a madman~fllled with a presentl. evil, but fascinated and with great feeling. than my own life,' I te- l cannot leave you alone ment of not be Joyful to me while drawn by a strange desire to see he- heart was ever in mY face once more, even if her lips curs- tad , ed me.

"It surely was decreed that we should meet in that far-off Jungle, awl if so. it was also decreed that we should meet again to-day." Then Valdermere, who had listened to my story with much patience, still sat silently in his great chair, while the soft light of the moon which ha4 risen fell upon his long wavy hair and enhanced the whiteness of his fair, smooth face. "Proceed," he said simply. "I imve done," I replied, feeling re- llevecl that my sad life's story was told. "And your lrlp here?" he in. quired. "Was uneventful," I auswere~, "until I reached the City of C- where I met with your envoy." "My envoy?" he said, in great st:-'. prise. "How my envoy?" "Did you not send an envoy to me..~ me in C~?".

This is a mis- take, says Farmers' Review. A,,~rl- cultural science is gaining among our farmers and is destined to gain more rapidly as the years go ou, It was natural that at first the progress should be slow. A body of 5,000,000 persons is not to be moved i~ a hurry. It is an aggregation of hu- man beings so vast that no one can conceive of its real import. It must be remembered, too, that at first the means for affecting this great mass and moving it were very meager. When our agricultural col- leges were organized there were few men capable of acting as instructors, for the universities of the country hat not been fitting men to teach ag- ricultural science. In many cases men had to be taken out of the fields and the creameries to teach in the col- leges. While they had a great deal of practical information, they had uot studied systematically the mass of agricultural information that had been accumulated, and were but poorly pre- How Paper May Be Made to Serve the Purpose. Blanching celery with paper is usu- ally practiced on the early plants for the reason, says Prah'ie Farmer, that during hot weather there is less dan- , g~ of rot. The accompanying lllus- Blanching Celery with Paper. traUon shows a plan for blanching a celery plant with tile and paper. As shown, the stalks are collected in a tile and wrapped in heavy paper so as to exclude the light. A stake is driven near to the plant to partially support. Any method that does not injure the plant and will exclude the light will answer th~ purpose. GOOD SEED CORN. Some of the important Points by Which It May Be Known, Some of the more important ob- servations to be made in the selection of seeds are: Yield, quality, uniform- ity. hardiness, time of ripening, free- dom from attacks of smut and rust, and, in the case of small grain, the stiffness of the straw. The corn crop requires, perhaps, as gre~t care in the selection aa any other, and merits special attention, says the Prairie Farmer. The rapid improvement that has been made in this crop, combined with the readi- ness with which the different varieties cross and mix renders tt extremely i subject to variation. Constant care l Is necessary in order tO establish the Ideslrable qualities that are brought out in these variations and to'more thoroughly eradicate those ~not desir- able. Some of the points to" be observed in the selection of seed corn are: 1. The size and shape of ear; ear should approach as nearly as may be a uniform diameter from end to end. 2. Size and quality of cob, a me- dium sized cob being much better than a large, spongy one. 3. Depth of grain. 4. Shape of grain; grains should carry their wedge shape uniformly to the end, so that the ear may present as ~tearly as possible a solid surface. 5. Covering of cob; cob should be aa completely and evenly covered as possible at both ends. 6. Hardness of grain, too hard and flinty a grain not being readily mas- ticated and digested. A hard grain. also, is more liable to be a shallow one. 7, Grains of even. uniform size and similar shape, to make possible uni- formity of planting. 8. Color of grain, purity of color indicating purity of the corn, POINTS WORTH NOTING. For late lettuce sow in partial ~ptnaeh for early sprtug "grec:.s" should be sown about the 10tb of thi~ month. It is the wasp, and not the honey bee, that punctures the grape. The bees profit from the work of the wasp.

Nothing rots the fruit quick- er or more surely than falling to the earth. p3red to teach it, It is only within the past I5 years that most of our agricultural colleges have beeu well enough equipped to become aggressive. Now, however, the material for teachers end instructors is abundant and great work is being done. That the farmers are being reached is demonstrated by the lncreasin$ attendance at farmers' meetings and in the agricultural col- leges. Information is being spread rapidly by word of mouth. Complaint is made that'the bulletins issued by the stattons are not widely read by the farmers. This is because it takes something of a student to take liter, afY matter and really absorb it, mak- Ing it into something having force. But lt:~ ~ach locality are u few men that have this ability and they spread the information by werd~ of mouth and by example. There are numerous factors that are operating to bring abbUt a better con- dition in the not distant future. One of these factors is the taking of more interest in agriculture by the men that have money and at the same time have a fair knowledge of farm- ing matters. These .men are buying farms and are putting into practise on them modern methods of agriculture. The farms so handled become object lessons, other farmers follow the lead of the most enterprising, unless they lack ~he wilt aud the ability to learn. There are some of the latter class, but they are destined to disap- pear during the next generation or two, for the reason that others will buy their farms, which will have be- come unprofitable to the present owners. It is becoming increasingly difficult to farm without thought and still make money. Farmers must make more money from their farms to-day than they used to. b .ecause they have more e~penses. The expenses cannot Box 321, DeGraff, Ohio. Dr: S. B. Hartman, Columbus, Ohio. Dear Sir :~ I was a terrible sufferer from pelvic weakness and had headache continuously.
