Handy Little Article That May Be
Easily Fashioned Out of Soft
Our sketch shows a useful little ar-
tide that can be made in spare mo-
ments in the shape of a neat little case
for a silver-plated corkscrew. A case
of this kind not only keeps the cork-
screw in a nice and bright condition,
but it is a useful little article in which
to place, a corkscrew when it Is put in
It is made in soft wash-leather and

The sketches show very clearly the

portion to the size of the corkscrew,
and they indicate clearly the way in
which it may be used. Diagram A
shows the case empty and spread out
quite flat, and to fasten it the flap is
folded over the handle and secured
with the press button; a piece of cork
should be put on the tip of the screw

A LITTLE STRATE6Y
By DONALD ALLEN.
‘‘Why, Susan, 1 am surprised!"
“I don’t see why, Amanda!"
“You have been a widow for three
“You are only thirty-eight years
"And you own this house and lots
of money in the bank."
“Well, when you tell me that there
is no man shining up to you I must
wonder what sort of a male popula-
tion you have got around here.”
It was Mrs. Amanda Baker, a mar.
ried sister, who had come on a visit
to the Widow Spicer.
Nothing more was said on the sub-
ject until two or three days later.
"Susie, who is Mr. Atkinson?” Mrs
Baker asked one evening.
"Why, he keeps a dry goods store."
“Yes, I know. 1 was in there. He
is a fine-looking man. ’
"Something tells me he is a wid.
“I—I believe so.”
"You believe so? Why, you know
he is. Do you do your shopping
“What kind of a housekeeper has he
"An old maid sister, older than he
"And I’ll bet she can’t cook for
shucks, and she makes his bed with
the foot the highest. Susan, there is
a widower that needs the care of a
"1 think he could have his pick
among half a dozen.”
"But you don't size him up right.
He is bashful and diffident. I'll bet
his wife had to do the proposing. He
realizes the need of a wife, but that
he must go through the courtship
again scares him to death."
“The poor man!"
"Something tells me, sister, that he
has thought' of you."
"If he has he has kept very quiet
"I told you he was bashful. When
he proposes it will be very sudden
and through excitement. My Peter
is just such a man."
"Sister," asked the widow, "what
are you driving at?"
"I want you to do as I tell you. From
5:30 to 6 this evening you will be in
your boat just below the foot bridge."
“If anyone falls off the bridge res-
“But how can anyone—”
“You never mind that, but do as 1
tell you. There is such a thing as
diplomacy, but you are too big a goose
to practice it. Get the saw and leave
it at the front door, and don’t you
attempt to spy on me and see what
use I make of it."
It was in vain that the widow be-
seeched further information, but she
stuck to her' promise to be on the river
with the boat. Her sister took up the
saw and made off as soon as dusk
descended, and where she went or
what she did was only to be guessed
At six o’clock footsteps were heard
on the bridge. So was something
else—a crash—a yell and a splash, and
next moment the boatman was crying
“Catch hold of the skiff and I will
tow' you ashore!"
When the shore was reached there
stood Mrs. Baker, who took a sharp
look at the wet and scared man.
“Who you got here?" she asked.
"Mr. Saxon, the cooper.”
' You old fool, why did you inter-
fere!" was exclaimed. “You get along
with you or I’ll throw you back to
It was in vain that the widow asked
for explanations. The sister was still
silent and sulky when a knock came
at the door, and in walked Mr. Atkin-
son He was much excited, and he
stammered as he addressed the w idow.
If I hadn't been detained ten min-
utes I should have been the one to
go through the bridge. I cannot swim
a stroke, but you would have been
there to save me. I want to thank
you just as if you had saved me.
And the elder sister sneaked out of
