The crnr-klnK or duratlng of lee Is hrotiKht ahoiit In this wny: When water js nulijeetr-d fo extreme eold lee cryntnls will gradually form on its s'lr- fae« ntilil the some nre covered wifli a thin eoal of what appears to be wet snow. From this outer routing of lee crystal* nil sultHeipjent free/hit? goes downward, (he let- thickening ner-ord- Ing to the degree of cold. The water which Is being converted Into lee now begins to expand, creating .1 pressure upon the unfrozen water below. This prcs-mre is both downward and outward, and in ease the water under ol>- servntlnn Is In n vessel the sides and bottom of the receptacle .supply the re- Histimee. AH the freezing process continues the lively game was enjoyed and | pressure upon the confined water and light, refreshments were served. Th one present included Messrs, nnd Mmes.

In this condition the center of the Ice continues to rise or bulge until It burstH from tho resistance of the water below.

Tliero still liugers a widespread be Ilef In the north of Scotland that the "fair folk," or "gweed noobors," as the fairies are called, still live In the hills, and during the first days of con valescoi|co a mother must be zealously guarded lest one of the "wee people" come and rob the child of Its nourish men).. Sometimes they succeed In carrying off the mother. Here Is one of the superstitious legends: A north country fisher had a .1ne child. One evening a beggar wnrnuu entered the hut and went up to the cradle to gaze Into the eyes of thu babe. From that time good health left It, and n strange look came Into ItH face, and the mother wns troubled. AD old man begging for food passed that way. When he caught sight of the child he cried: "That's nae a bairn. It's an Image, and the gweed folk has stoun bis speorit." Thereupon he set to work to recall the fisher's bairn. A. peat fire was lieu poo high on the hearth and a black hen held over It at such a distance that It was singed and not killed. After some struggling tho hen escaped up the lum. A few moments elapsed, and then the parents were gladdened by tho sight of a happy expression once more on the child's face, ft throve from that day forward.—Spectator. It Might Have Been Worse. Mark Twain, during one of his lecture tours, was walling at a station for a delayed train. The lecture committee and several townsmen wore with him and talking their best to pass tho time away. Ono man told about a frightfully unhealthy town he hud read about, and It was a grow-some talc of dying and burials and that sort. "It might have boon worse," Twain followed, In his slow and direct manner. "I lived In that same town for two years, and I never died once-not a single time." The way lie said It Hccmoil to daze tho crowd, and not a man said a word In response. "Of course you may think I'm lying," the humorist continued, "and I'm sorry, for I can't get any witnesses to testify that I didn't, because everybody else that lived there Is dead." Germany's Strict Laws. In no country Is the government more strict than In Cerinany. If a foreigner wishes to remain In a town for some days he must take his passport to the police and receive In vxchauge for It, together with a sixpenny pleco, a penult card, which entitles him to remain there for six mouths. The passport Is pigeonholed. If, however, you desire to change your lodging both you and your landlord must give notice to the police. This system recommends. Itself not a little, for It prevents pauper Immigration. No German Is allowed to leave the country unless ho can show ho has done the military service required of him. If a man Is on <hc point of starting ho must delay his departure until lit* gets a passport showing that ho Is a free man. Missionary /VteefJflff. The Women's Foreign 8oolety of the Methodist Church met withr Mrs. II. W. White on Wednes- j day last. The meeting was presided j over by the new president, Mrs. G. W. Lee, and after a few appropriate remarks Mrs. Warner read a paper on the history of the missionary society of the Pacific coast. Mrs, Ir« LaFetra of Glondora, who with her husband was for a number of years identified with educational work iu Chili. South America, ad- drecsed the Indies on their work among the natives. As she closed her interesting and instructive address she made an appeal to the missionary societies of the state of Cfali- fornia to lend a helping hand to the work in that foreign field,'saying that she would have them lose China, •Japan and Korea rather than Month America. Tno speaker exhibited a large number of curios and photographs which she had brought, with her from foreign fields of labor. Refreshments consisting of sandwiches, (takes and chocolate were served the large company of ladies at the close of tho meeting.

Tho N°w Jersey experiment station recently experimented feeding rnllk cows and cowpea hay and found that with the cowpea ration milk was made at a cost of 39.8 cents per 100 pounds, while the cost on a grain ration was 00.5 cents. On the grain ration the cows produced 8.3 per cent more milk and 15.2 per cent more butter, but comparison of the price of feeds showed a large balance In fuvor of the cow- poa ration. Why not plan to sow a few acres of cowpea next season? Take Care of the Tools. Before hitching to the plow or harrow or any other farm tool see to It that all the nuts are turned up tightly, says Farm Journal. This may save not only a breakdown, but a runaway or something even more serious. Lots of wrenches are lost out In the field by laying them down and forgetting to pick them up. It Is a good plan to fasten them with a wire to the p'.jvr or whatever Implement Is being used,. Then we will always bave them ready^ for use.
