she is cured of this trouble. She waa
all run down when she started taking

weak that I often had to help her dress
herself, but now she is regular and is
growing strong and healthy." —Mrs.

The prevalent idea appears to be
that there can be no love without a
pretty large admixture of Jealousy,
and that, conversely, almost every case
of jealousy springs from some mis-
guided love affair. Whether this idea
is the right one or not Is decidedly
oped to question. Ideal love affairs
preclude jealousy altogether, and
where absolute trust and confidence
exist there Is no room at all for the
One curious attribute of the jealous
woman who plans to sweep her rivals
out of the way is that she generally
shows a marked lack of brains in her
methods. Jealousy not only blunts all
her finer feelings, but at the same time
it causes a curious confusion of mind,
which fails to take the proper grasp
of consequences and which is utterly
Illogical and childishly reckless in its
One has only to glance at the daily
papers to see this fact practically Illus-
trated. The schemes of the jealous
woman are the most childishly imma-
ture in the world, and In almost every
case fall to pieces and bring speedy
retribution on her own head, For not
alone does the victim suffer. The worst
generally comes upon the plotter her-
Love very often does bring a cer-
tain amount of jealousy in its train.
But at the same time it Is entirely up
to ourselves to curb those feelings and
to keep them from outward and visible
expression. Moreover, it is perfectly
true that, although love generally does
admit of jealousy, the latter can exist
and flourish pretty successfully with-
Therefore In the last analysis we
may most assuredly claim that Jeal-
ousy and love are two distinct and
auite separable affairs.—Savannah

Two Boys, a Cow and Two Calves.
This is a short story of how two
Vermont boys, still In their teens,
have made some real money In a thor-
oughbred Guernsey. They paid $200
for the animal when she was two
years old, and as their father was a
banker and they were away to school
a farmer was induced to keep the ani-
mal for them. They owned the cow
a little over two years and during that
time she had two calves. The boys
found a ready market for the calves
and have Just sold the cow, the three
animals having been sold for $525.
The farmer charged them $125 for
keeping of the stock and other ex-
penses and the boys will net $100
apiece from the transaction. The boys
are quite satisfied with their invest-
ment and incidentally have become
somewhat interested in life upon a
Vermont farm.—Springfield (Vt.) Re-
Germany's Potato Crop.
The potato crop of Germany waa
one of the largest on record. The offi-
cial statistics place the figures at 50,-
200,000 metric tons, as against 34,300,-
000 metric tons in 1912. Quite a high
percentage of the potatoes were dis-
eased and could not be kept over win-
ter, and the crop being large th«
prices obtained were low.

According to Notice.
During a sham fight which constitut-
ed part of a certain infantry bat-
talion's training for the war a com-
pany was told off to follow up the re-
treating "enemy." For this purpose
the pursuers, who had been having
a strenuous time, had to cross a fairly
wide river, and were marched to the
nearest bridge, which was about four
miles away. Imagine their disappoint-
ment on arriving to tind this notice
attached to the bridge of the "ene-
my": "This bridge Is blown up." But
the oflicer in command of the pursuers
was a man of action, and promptly
attached a notice to one of his leading
men and proceeded to march his force
•cross the bridge. They had almost
crossed it, when an umpire suddenly
appeared, frantically waving his hand
and exclaiming: "The bridge is blown
up; all these men are drowned!" The
commanding oflicer made no reply, but
simply pointed to his notice, whlcU
read: "This company is swimming
