dandelions, weeds abliored in the Held,

Weeds indeed wear very different as
pects in different places; they are
simply plants out of place, and when
we put them where they belong, they
ha\e a value not inferior to many of
their more aristocratic relations. The
b( auty of the dhisies lies partly In
their durability and partly In the nam-
ber of things that can be done with j
them There was a picture lately |
published in a magazine of a table dec- |
orated with common field daisies. It
was a long table on which were spread
three raisy wreaths, extending to the
corners at the end, In the center of
the middle wreath stood a tall glass
vase filled loosely with daisies, while
glass candlesticks stood within the
other wreathes. Green candles wer<

ENGINE GOT IN THfe GAME.
Ball Fell Oovrn Smokestack and Waa
Tossed to Baseman.
In the baseball annuals of Tixaa,
Baltimore county, Is an incident which,
whether an actual occurance or not,
has been repeated so often that It la
Invested with the force of fact.
On a hot Fourth of July back in tho
eighties, when the catcher held his
position behind the bat without mask,
and the pitcher knew of no curve or
toe plate, there was a game of ball
between the Texas Sluggers and the
Timonium Little Potatoes but Hard to
Peel. The Sluggers had gotten in
some good stick work early in the
game, and the visitors were just feel-
ing tns big Texas pitcher.
It was the fifth inning, and the
Little Potatoes had two men on the
bases—one on second and the other
on first—when one of their home run
hitters who had been asleep up to this
moment, struck the ball. It cleared
the entire field and would have fallen
| on the railroad track, but Just at that
moment a train came along and the
ball disappeared in the smokestack
of the engine. The traSh was going
at a lively speed up grade, and the
force of the puffs ejected the ball. The
momentum of the train carried it until
it fell Id the third baseman's hands,
«nd a doublo play was the result. Af-
tar uucb kicking from the TJttle Po-
tatoes as to whether the play wa3 fair,

"Now, ehildtrem,' said tha teacher,
one day, "I think the school visitor
n;ay be here tomorrow or next
The children all pomised to be-
have well. They did not like to hear
that the visitor was coming. Ha was
ery tall, very grave, and very strict
and they were afraid of him.
The next day this tall, stern gen-
leman said to himselfr "I will visit
the Hillside school today."
He went to the door; the wind was
sharp and chilly, so he turned back,
and said: "Wife, can you tell ma
here my overcoat is?"
'"Yes; it nangs in the barn cham-
ber; it has been thera all summer,''
Dr. Bray put on his coat and wallt-
I away to the schoolhouse.
Teacher placed a chair for him on
the platform. Just as he had asked
the arithmetic class a puzzling ques-
tion, one of the girls at the desk gova
All the others nestled and fidgeted,

The visitor turned and lookad at

touched her bell and shook her head
"Pleas^, t.dachcr," squdaked ona
little voice, "it was a mouse.' '
I hope we may have order in the
school room now," said Dr. Bray, in
his deepest tone, and then he gave out
his question once more.
Pop! onioKhar mouse! This one
ran over to the boys' side ,and two
or three of the boys saw where it
came from. They nudged each other
and clapped their hands over their
mouths to keep from laughing aloud.
The teacher touched her bell again
anu called "Silence!" She felt very
mtch disturbed that her boys and
gir',3 should act eo.
Hut she glanced toward the visitor
to see how he took It, she was obliged
to smile herself, for the third niousa
jumped out of the good man's pocket
and scampered away.
The boys laughed aloud now. and
the girls were all in confusion.
Dr. Bray arosa from his chair, pre-
pared to say something very severe
indeed. To do this properly, he put
his hands in his pockets, and out

The visitor had a broad smile on

pardon," he said, "for bringing a
pocketful of mice to school."
The teacher gave ten minutes' re-
cess, and It was a merry one. Then
the scholars came to order and be-

Take that belated vacation now

Salaried Man's Paradise.
When over 60.000 men and women
among its population earning a mod-
est income in the service of the gov
erement, Washington may fairly be
described as the salaried man's para-
dise, with ambitious schemers con-
stantly watching the trend of legisla-
tion and retired millionaires aggres-
sively seeking the social recognition
only too frequently denied them at
home, it may not inappropriately be
called the Versailles of the twentieth
century. In a word, Washington so-
ciety is a society of contrasts, but it
is a society, also, in which contrasts
blend better certainly than they do
almost anywhere else.

Egg Storage Experiments. t "
Experiments have been made by
Plrector Srauch of the Neisse argi-
cultural school, Germany, with vas.
ious methods for keeping eggs fresh.
Batches of twenty fresh eggs were
each subjected to treatment by differ-
ent methods at the beginning of July,
and they were examined at the end
cf February. The results are most
Interesting, and prove that, If proper-
ly treated, eggs may be preserved for
a ong time. The twenty eggs kept in
brine were all unfit for use; they were
not decayed, but unpalatable from be-
ing saturated with salt. In the other
treatments the results were as fol-
