WHERE CHILDREN ARE TAKEN.
Mrs. Gunbusta Found One #f Pew
Spot* In Nsw York.
Mrs. Gunbusta left her pretty cot-
tage In Bumhurst and took the earliest
train to the city, aay# the New York
Press. She was going there to find a
modern flat for herself, her husband
and their four little children. They
bad tired of the suburbs and decided
to move to the city.
Arriving In the metropolis, Mrs.
Gunbusta popped Into the first real
•state offlce that confronted her, and.
going up to a ruddy-faced, chubby
man seated at a polished desk, she
"Excuse me, sir—I'm Mrs. Gunbusta
of Bumhurst—we're tired of the sub-
urbs—we want to come to the city—
that's why I've called—I'm looking for
a place where they'll take children-
do you know of any such place?"
"Oh, yes. there are a few places left
In the city where they take children,"
replied the man, wheeling about In his
chair; there is a fine place two
blocks down, right on the corner; take
a look at It; you can't miss Beelng It."
"I'll go to see lc Immediately," and
as Mrs. Gunbusta hurried out of the
place and walked in the dlrectlou Indi-
cated the ruddy-faced, chubby fellow's
eyes twinkled merrily. Walking down
two blocks, what was Mrs. Gunbusta's
surprise to see on the corner an Im-
mense granite building, on the front
of which was a large gilt sign, read-
"CITY ORPHAN ASYLUM."

SEALING WAX V . STRING.
Farmer Artlcls I* Rapidly •upptantlnf
The old familiar strinf tied around
a parcel la to tfve place to sealing
wax. A grocer vouchsafed this Infor-
mation the other day, when InBtead ot
tying up a bag of cranberries with a
string he folded the edges of the
mouth neatly together and. dipping a
•tick of red sealing wax into a small
gas flame near by, clapped It on the
bag, effectually sealing It.
•it's all done In a second, you see."
he said. "Just touch the stick to
your package and shove It across the
counter—no bother with groping for
a string, then a whole minute wasted
In tying up the bundle, while other
customers are standing around look-
ing Impatient. Sealing wax is Just a*
cheap as string, too. and It makes a
neater, handier parcel. The druggists
first began this bualness of using seal
ing wax for fastening packages. It
proved to be a good thing, and now
dealers In other lines, such as sta
rioners. confectioners and tobaccon
ista are taking up the practice. Man
ufactur«rs of string are already feel
tug the dropping off In the use ot
their product and are beginning to
view the advent ot wax with alarm
but I don't see what they are going
to do about it unless tbe> turn their
cordage factories into wax plants."
