E'S THE LOG OF
Being the Diary of a Girl Involved
in Chicago Divorce, with
GIVES NEW POINTS ON LOVE
Writes "It's Awful to Have to Talk
to a Kid That is Silly About You
When Yon Really Need Rest"
Called "Sunny Mary."
Chicago, 111. Miss Mary McLaln,
who vas named in the successful
suit for divorce brought by Mrs. Al
legretti, wife of a candy manufac
turer, has, in justification of herself,
made public part of a diary which
she kept while she was employed as
Mr. Alegretti's secrets ry. She de
termined on this after her employ
er's wife had called her a "love
pirate." At the trial Miss McLain be-
i came known as the "Shadow Kiss
er," witnesses testifying that they
recognixeJ her shadow en the office
curtains when Mr. Aliegretti em
Here are some cf the extracts
from the young secretary's diary:
"It's avfrl to have to talk to a
kid that's silly about you when you
really need rest. It takes young
men' an awful while to get wise to a
"Those sad eyed men make me
weepy. Ginger! All the fellows
that think I'm cute are married or
bald headed, or both.
"It's hard to oe goood when the first
principle of life in the sweet, pure
air of the farm is to sell cold stor
age eggs for new laid.
"I'd rather chase home a cow with
cockle burrs In her tail through a
wet pasture than go three blocks for
a patent bottle of milk with all the
cream in one end.
"I'm thinking of opening a mani
cure parlor for exclusive patronage
that means nothing lets than $5.
Ma says the only people I'd get
would be lunatics. That's all right,
too. All the manicures would be
dea if Tvro it f"i tho T n 3. t i c .
"If kisses were ten dollar bills
what a merry world this would be!
"Now this diary is to tell just only
the absolute truth, and it's only for
me to read, because one doesn't dare
to tell the truth to oie's friends, and
i one s enemies aren t wortn talking
"I've found out what love is. It
was in a book written by a man who
said he'd ben loved by more women
than lie had finders and tees. He
says love is a distemper. Gee! That's
what McCliui.oc-k'3 pup had when his
hair fell out and they drowned him
because he couldn't die from chloro
form. I think I see my finish.
"Oh, I believe I have found the
man. He's at least thirty-five, but
he is the darlingest darling in Chica
go, end he isn't married. When I
told Pa he said to wait" a month or
two, because the worst spavined
horse looks all right in the twilight.
Pa's getting to be a pessimist.
"Oh! little Mary, why is it that
all the women wait until they are
fifty and wear double lens glasses to
talk women's rights? I guess It is
because they don't find the sleddin'
quite so easy as they used to.
"Now, just think of me morbid.
Why they called me 'Sunny Mary'
from the time I was four, and the
first time I ever can remember being
real angry was when they fed my
milk toast to the Bishop because he
had bum teeth and I'd been crying
for it for over an hour. I was only
six then, but it shows you how they
rub it into the suffering little ones."
CUTS WAY OUT OF ICUUOX.
llutchev Nerrly Frozen l y Two Hours
Oakland, Cal. Fred. Lewis, a
local butcher, entered his icebox at
the close of business to adjust his
stock and took along an axe.
A spring lock on the outside
slipped into place as the door slipped
from his hand, and he immediately
began pounding and shouting for as
sistance. The intense cold rendered
him numb, and he finally, after two
hours' imprisonment, attacked the
walls with the axe.
Neighbors who heard the muffled
blows believed that burglars were
operating, and as Lewis crawled
through the hole he had made he
was confronted by a policeman, to
whom he explained the situation.

AS TO A WO.' LAN'S AGE.
She Never Grows Old IJut Improves
as Years Pass.
Out in Missouri there is a happy
man who has been married for sixty
years and he ascribes all the joy that
has come to him because he has nev
er asked his wife her age. He has
a suspicion that she must be some
thing like as old as he is, and he ad
mits to more than four score, but the
subject has never been mentioned be
tween them, and he advises all hus
bands to go and do likewise.
This philosophy may have merit.
It at least would have that of econo
my, for if a woman were never to tell
her age she would never admit
having a birthday and the thrifty
husband would be saved and expen
ditures on this account. Unfortu
nately such is the nature of woman
kind that it 4s not likely there would
be any great gain at the end of the
year, for she would be able to get a
rake-off on some other count that
would make up the alleged profit.
Why are women in this part of
the world so chary of admitting the
years to which tehy have attained?
It is not so in China, where added
honors come with each birthday, and
to be wrinkled and gray-haired i3 to
De popular. In this country women
think they may secure eternal youth
either by not admitting their age or
by lying about it. Not many wom
en will admit to being over forty. It
used to be so that they like thirty
pretty well, but in the last score of
years the woman of forty has come
into her own and is quite the social
queen. But they don't g.et beyond
that so long as the hairdresser, the
drug store and the massage artist
can keep at work on complexion,
while corset makers and milliners
and dress-makers work on the figure.
It is the feminine theory that a wom
an is as young as she looks and she
often is willing to feel mighty bad
to keep up the appearance of youth.
What is the harm in admitting
age? One ought to be wiser and
better as one gets older and more at
tractive. The' ordinary man has no
delusions on this subject. He isn't
even deluded by the wiles and airs
of women. He smiles at their sub
terfuge and says nothing. He is will
ing to dress according to the weather
and he is not ashamed of wrinkles
or white hair so long as he can have
?cao3 in the world. - ' He may find
that his wife or daughters spend an
extraordinary amount in preserving
what the fashionable whims of the
hour called youth, but he is wise
enough to keep his mouth shut.
Women do not grow old. They
change and the right sort of women
is" improving all the time. If it is
any satisfaction to them to deceive
themselves they are not to be denied
the privilege. It ta.kes very little to
make some people happy and let
them have their w.ay. But Father
Time works relentlessly and "gets
there" at last.

He kept all the wires in his own

prayer meetings, at which Bergmann,
dressed as a "high priest," stood be

There were no small contributions,

World's Biggest Pile of Sawdust.
Probably the largest sawduBt pile
in the world is the one at Cheboygan,
Mich. This Is the product of one
mill. The mill, being run by wa

of its sawdust. The company was
not permitted to dump It Into the
river, and for a few years an attempt
was made to burn it.
There was so much smoke that the
village passed an 6rdinance prohibit
ing that form cf destruction. As a
consequence it was simply hauled
out Into a vacant field and during the
thirty years of its growth has acquir
ed monstrous proportions. It is a

and ranges from 20 to 50 feet high.

that the centre of the mass w'll re

Is that the outer part will become
over-heated wb'le the center is mat

lower the temperature of the wholo
mass when the heat is applied. If
the entire lot be at the freezing point,
the center may cafy remain solid

Bees Drive Out Birds.
A large yellowhammer poked a
hole in a pcplir post on the front
porcdi of tie old Dr-Fore. rvr-,
three mi;es west of Bocnville, Ind.,
and built its net. Sron a lr -g9
swarm of bees settled on the roo" cf
the perch, and, find'ng the opening
made by the bird, they entered ar,a
began to make it their home. The
biids saw them intruding on their
young one and began to fight des
perately to save them. They flew
around with great effort, catching the
bees in their b-lls and curshing them.
Tbe bees fought back by stinging the
birds. In the end the bees triumph
ed. They drove the birds away from
their young one3 and are storing

Bees an.d Wild Flowers.
Every farm has on it fruit trees,
oerry patches,, clover, or buckwheat
fields all of which. In the absence of
bees, is evaporated by the sun and
practically wasted. The forests also
contain many linden and white wood
trees which are good honey yield era.
Then there are the autumn wild flow
ers, such as boneset, go'denrod, harts
ease and wild asters, which bloom
for a succession of two months, from
which the bees do not only store a
quantity of surplus honev, but a!so
fill the broad nests of the hive3 for
winter stores. In my locality bee
keepers get the most and finest honey
from autumn wild flowers which
grow at random everywhere.

claimed to have shown that an old,
unprofitable apple orchard may be

recommends fertilizer containing
about three per cent nitrogen, six per
