For lunch she had a glass of milk, a couple of choc olate eclairs, a pleee of hot mince pie and some candy.

V;J-0. BAXTER, Jb In NTS FOR FARMERS Fas stars Vegetable Garden. In a paper prepared and read before the Horticultural Society of Northern Illinois! by Mrs, Carrie Swlgert she 'ays1thst a good, garden Is usually (evidence 'of a" food farmer. An lnclo aure of a. given quantity. ground Is iby no means a garden, any more than a dwelling house is a home. From a business standpoint; bow can the farm er's garden be made profitable t she asks. In the first place, she answers, by reducing the grocery VX. The cost of living on the farm. depends largely upon the proportion of the articles con sumed that are produced at home. The ordinary farm supplies the family with flour, meat and dairy products: These are the necessities of life, and If the housekeeper has no other place from which to draw she. will 'find It very difficult to supply her table with a pleasing variety of wholesome dunes during the whole year. Either the farmer's living will have to be nar rowed down to an nnhealthful monot ony or cUo there will bo h great void In the bill of faro that must be filled from some other source. This void may be and very often Is filled from the grocery, but money Is not always plenty or there Is no time to spare to go to market as often as things are needed for the table. We do not enjoy taking out our purse, and emptying out a part of it on the grocer's counter every time we go to town. The result Is we are tempted all the time to scrimp, and the housekeeper la. com pelled to do without much she would gladly have. But there is a way to re duce these grocery bills and at the same time Increase the comfortsof our homes, and this is by providing a first class garden on the farm, which will furnish nn agreeable variety for every day in the year. Seed Potatoes. Although in tho United States It Is generally understood that the "crown. or" seed end eyes, are tho best, yet there has been a controversy in Eng land upon the subject of seed, some claiming for a number of years that the stem end only should be planted and that these furnished a larger nnd consequently n better potato. I think I can explain this difference of .opinion readily, although I have but little ex perlence in raising them. It is well known that tho eyes on the seed end are much moro numerous than on the stem end. It has been the custom gen erally until recently and is still the custom except by a few to cut off the seed end and to put two or even three of these pieces to each hill. This, of course, gives a large number of stalks to each hill, while the stem end, having not half as many eyes, has only ha' two or three pieces to the bill, the stalks, of course, being equally less in number. And now of late years a few persons have found out that tho bill of potatoes with only two or three stalks gives a larger and consequently a bet ter potato than the hills having many stalks. Therefore the stem end men have got the largest and best potatoes because tbey have less stalks in the hills, as they have less eyes. It Is claimed of late years by those who have tested it that large potatoes only should be selected for seed and that only one eye should be kept on each piece and only two pieces for a hill if you .want large, marketable potatoes. You always find your largest potatoes when there Is only one largo vino. One great secret in potato cultivation is not to have too many eyes in one piece aud cut large ones for seed. W. T. Elder in National Stockman. The Angora Goat. The Prairie Farmer says that the An gora goat does not mature as fast as the sheep, but lives to a greater age. It Is a browsing animal," getting its living from bushes, twigs, leaves and the bark of trees, with a preference for weeds over pasture grasses, and, while the meat of the sheep Is preferred to that fbf goat the latter Is rapidly growing in favor. But wo learn from other pa pers that to get a large fleece and fat carcass from the goat it is necessary to finish it off with about as good food as would be required by the sheep. We think it Is with the goat as with the pigs of the man who bought a lot to root up the swnrd In his orchard, and that they might do-so he thought he must feed them scantily. After a time be made complaint to a neighbor that they did not fatten as he expected them. "Well," said the neighbor, "you needn't think they are going to do BO cents worth Of work on 25 cents' worth of feed and get fat at it" Editors as Agricultural advisers, ' Some editors . not. only advise the preachers what to preach, the politi cians what to advocate,5 but fill their papers with advice to the farmers as to what to plant how to plant it work It and gather it ; It is all very well to nt temnt tho first two, for as molders of nubile opinion it Is a part of the bust ness of a newspaper to do these things, but when a man who has never seen a watermelon until It has arrived in town or who wouldn't know a scooter from a turn plow attempts to tell a man who When a kid was rocked in an' oat cra dle, put to sleep In a cotton basket and whipped with a hamestrlug what to do it Is carrying things a little too far.

Besides, at home tbey did not have breakfast at the ridiculously early hour of 7. Break fast at 7 indeed!

The ticket man concealed a smile. Lai said that he woukl go home and fetch it for his resolve was In nowise shaken. But as he went out of the station doekhe saw a dainty, well known little figure coming down the road. Phyllis carefully avoided the little puddles left by the' night's rain nnd tried to look Joyfully forward to being under mamma's protecting wing. He drew back and watched her. This very pretty little lady, holding ber parasol Judywise on ber arm, marched boldly into the office and, without hesitation, demanded a first class ticket Then, all unsuspecting, she put her little White gloved band Into her pocket nnd began to search for her purse. , Lai, with a secret triumph, observed her growing pinker and pinker till she was the pretty color of the roses in her hat She turned the pocket inside out, but no purse was to be found. Then she gasped, "Oh, I left It on the dress ing table!" And, apologizing profusely to the amused ticket man, she turned away and prepared to walk at a great pace back to the house. Lai caught up to her in a couple of strides and politely asked her if he should fetch her purse. She started and colored, thanked bim .with elaborate politeness and said that she would get it herself. ". , "As I am ' just going to get mine," said Lai quite; coolly, 'iwe- might as .well .walk together if you don't mind."

Instead, the embroidered dolly, which to be up to date is large and square, calls for a tall, slim vase, .with a few choice roses or some tall stemmed flow ers in the center of the dolly. At each corner of the dolly goes a lower vase of the same style as the taller, with the same flowers in it Sometimes the vases are low. and hold violets or or chids, but they must be alike.
