A man. recently left a widower,
when arranging for his late wife's
tombetone, gave orders that the let-

the bottom of the atone he wished to
have the words. "Lord, she wa* thine."
The stonemason said he was afraid
there would not be room for the words,
but the bereaved widower insisted, aad
the carvlag was put it) haad. The cor-

at the foot of the tablet were the worda,
"Lord, she was thin."

Quite often the strawberry patches
had the appearance of having been
Horched in spots by flre. In Kansas,
there appear to be three distinct
broods during one season; each suc-
ceeding brood becoming more numer-
ous, and consequently more destruc-
tive. The following observations wer-
made during the past year. On June
14 the first brood of adults commenced
to appear, and continued to emerge
till the 24th; on June 22 eggs for tho
second brood were being laid; on
June 24 tbe second generation of
larvae or worms were commencing to
hatch out; by July 25 many of the
larvae were In pupal state; from July
21 to August 10 the second generation
of adults were emerged; on August
14 larvae or worms of the third gen-
eration were to be found In large
numbers; by September 3 many of the
larvae were going Into tbe pupal
state. At present we have no new
remedies to suggent aside from those
usually given. Paris green applied to
the inflated plants at the first appear-
ance of the worms would be very ef-
fective. To determine the earliest
sppeurance of tho worms necessitates
a very close watching on tbe part of
the fruit grower. After the crop Is
gathered, mow the beds, and collect
and hum the leaves. Do not purchase
plants from Infested patches. Where
new beds are to be started, plow un-
der the old ones; for by this meana
many of the insects will be buried and

"Don't go out of the orchard," mam-
ma said, as she tied the strings of Dim-
"No'm," said Dimple, and "Why?"
asked Tommy. "Why can't we go out
of the orchard?"
Because, I want you both by and by,
and you must not go too far away, or
i you will not bear me when I call you,"
"What do you want us for?" Tommy
asked. He always w .nted everything
"Never mind what for. Come when
you are called and you will find out,
little interrogation mark," mamma
said, smiling. (
They went out into the blossomy or-
chard. where the white woolly lambs
were frisking and the orioles were
"Isn't It Just 'squislte," murmured
Dimple, who was fond of big words,
"and don't it smell p'rfumy?" wrink-

"We'll begin where we left off, and 1
most know we'll find It to-day," Tom-
my said, counting (iff the rows of t m
to the fifth.
! "Oh, don't let's begin yet! I want ^o
play with tho lamuiies first!" pleaded
"What did you promise?" Tommy de-
manded, sternly. "And, besides, If we
don't find It pretty soon, It'll be too
late to see the eggs."
So Dimple took one side of a row and
marched along as Tommy did, with
head craned back and eyes peering up
sharply Into the branches, intent on
finding the orioles' nest, which Tommy
was determined not to miss this year.
At the end of the row her fat little
neck ached so that she tumbled down
on the soft gras-i to rest while Tom-
my wandered away to the big standard
pear tree In the corner, and there, on
the farther side on a swaying bough,
bung the pouch-like nest, with Mrs.
Oriole peeping out at him. But so far
above his head, and on so slender a
branch was the nest that Bhe knew
she was perfectly safe, and did not stir.
"They did it on purpose so a fellow
j could not get at It!" Tommy complain-
ed to Dimple, as he lay on the grass
beside her. "They needn't been so p'r-
tlcular. I wouldn't hurt their old eggb
just looking at them."
"And now we'll play with the
lambs," said Dimple.
"Let's go to the pasture and hunt for
the turkey's nest," proposed Tommy,
bent on finding eggs of some sort.
"Why, Tommy Wheeler, mamma
aaid not to go out of the onnard!" ex-
"She didn't mean to stay here al-
wsys. She 'spected to need us, and she
hasn't, or else shed called, and she
won't care If wh go now. Come on I '
Tommy could always convince him
self, and nearly alwayB convince Dim-
ple, so a few moments later they
slipped through the fence and s-am-
pered across the meadow to the pas-
ture. And there the shallow creek for
Tommy to skip stones across, and tbe

to play with. Interested them so much
that they did not tulnk of going to tho
bouse until tbe sun was getting low

"Maybe we hadn't ought to stayed so

of possible cousequences as they neared
The .side door was locked, and It was
■till and lonesome, aa If no one was at
home. This was never known before,
and the children did not know what to
make of It.
"Where ran mamma be?" wondered
Pimple, as they went to the back porch.
The sr.faen was fastened, but close to
the back door lay a . beet of foolscap
paper weighted with a brick to keep It
Tommy looked at It curiously. "Why.

So It was. and written so simply and
"O, Dimple! Dimple' Aunt Milly

Nearly every one has seen the pretty
bush-tall gold fish that have four or
Ave, or sometimes more. long, wavy,
filmy tails, but very few people know
that but very few of them are born
tbat way. When the little gold fish
are very, very young their fiesn is
as clear as glass, so that one can see
every bone in their tiny bodiee. At,
this time the few that are born wltn
two or more tails are put by them-
selves, and then a queer-looking old
Jap. with a great magnifying glass
fastened in front of his eye and wee
sharp tools handy, reaches down un-
der the water and cuts off the tails of
the plain little fish, and then three or
four of these tails are jointed on
to the backbone where the one was cut
off. and fastened there with tiny ban-
dages until they grow fast.
The Japanese, who are very skillful
In queer things of this kind, grow the
finest gold fish in the world, and It is
a very good business, for very fine fish
of this kind often bring as much as
$300 to $500, and one was sold not
long ago for $1,000.

The whale has many enemies be-

the swordflsh and the thresher. These
always fight tbe whale together, the
swordfish from beneath, stabbing the
j great creature again and again with
his sword, which is sometimes twice
as long as a man, and the thresher
staying on top of the water and pound
ing the poor whale with his strong
flipper, which is like a great log of
wood, until at last the biggest fish In
the ocean Is killed by these two hard
fighters, who are also good dodgers,
and get out of the way of the mighty
tail and huge Jaws, never being scared
by Ihe loud bellowing of the big fish
Then the swordfish and the thresher
have a feast, and the sleeper shark,
too, slips up from behind and steals
a big bite. The shark is a coward and
is always lying in wait for a dinner
which some one else has earned.
