I was spending a few days In the valley of the Naugatuck, jaunting about the highways and the byways in a flivver, with ouly a dog and a camera for company. One morning, on a lonely bit of road that rims the river, I came upon an old garden a garden run to weed, where a few roses of an earlier day still struggled for their share of the sun. At the entrance to a grass-grown path that led to nn old house, there stood two ancient ash trees. I sat down upon the wide stone doorway, and it. too, was covered with wild, green things creeping tendrils from a fallen vine that lay twisted on the ground like a huge brown snake. In the tall, waving grass I saw the tip of my dog's white tail moving .stiffly. He was stalking some wild creature. I sat very sUent. "Who built this house and who made this garden, and why are they allowed to run to ruin?" These and other questions drifted into my mind ns I sat there under the indefinable spell of this old place. Suddenly my meditations were Interrupted by the yelping of my dog. He was fiercely disputing the right of a tall, white haired man to enter the garden. As quickly as I could I made my way through the weeds and brambles again. The dog, his sense of duty satisfied, wagged a welcome. The old gentleman (he looked like a country doctor) cupied his hand behind his ear and shouted: "Are you one of the Itandals the New York Itandals?" "Xo, I'm not," I shouted back. "Is this their place r "Yes, this is the old Randal house. I was driving past and I saw you sitting In the doorway and I thought that that you might be one of Miss Abby Randal's relatives from New York." And then, with the loquacity of the aged, he told me this: "Abby Randal, a very beautiful woman, the last mistress of the otd place, was born there about 40 years ago. When she was a girl of nineteen or twenty she was engaged to a young man named Nelson Peter Nelson of Naugatuck. Nelson was fond of horses and he rode a fine saddle horse. It was his custom to ride out from Naugatuck to the old Randal place every evening. "One evening, the eve of his wedding day, his horse came dashing into the Randal yard riderless and covered with foam. Abby. sensing that something had happened to her lover, hastily saddled her own horse and started out toward Naugatuck ; about half way she found Nelson lying In the road, cut and Weeding, but conscious. "Help was summoned and the Injured man was carried to Miss Randal's home. "Throughout the night Abby Randal never left his side, and the next morning, nt the request of the dying man, she became his wife. At nightfall she was a widow. "The girl-widow, dry-eyed and silent, shut herself in her room she wanted to ! alone. "In the morning the girl lay crumpled upon the floor, sleeping as peacefully as a little child. Kindly hands helped her into bed. and all day the girl lay In profound sleep. And when, toward evening, she awoke, she seemed to have lost all memory of what had befallen her. She complained of a headache, and f having had a frightful dream that was all. "In a few days she was busy about her accustomed tasks, not exactly the same as of old. but doing things in a dreamy, automatic way. She never spoke of Nelson, and her family and friends avoided mention of his name. She seemed happiest when working alone among the flowers hi the garden. "Five years went by, her mother dted and Abby Randal lived ou in the old ilace with only an aged servant for company. "Nelson had been dead about ten years when one morning Abby Randal's memory came back part of It came back. "She hal come down to breakfast, and when old Mary brought in the coffee Miss Randal said: Tin going away today, Mary. My husband, Mr. Nelson, came back. He was here this morning, and he is coming again this evening. Rut you may live here, Mary, as long as you like. "In her old heart Mary rejoiced, for the doctors had said that, eventually. Miss Randal's memory would come back, and now there was a glimmer of it. "Just before supper Mary saw her mistress gathering roses white roses from the bush near the birdhouse. When supper was ready the old servant went to the door, but Miss Randal was not in the garden ; then the old woman walked down the path anil there under the ash tree tbe one at the left as you go out lay Abby Randal, Just ns she had fallen, the white roses in her hand.

Naturally he appreciates the quality of USCO, That was established long ago. It is still fresh in his mind that places, but the increase is not likely to be as rapid in the future, and a purchaser should have strong reason for believing a farm will increase materially in price before he acquires a small farm as an investment nd sacrifice on his yearly income ir order to benefit by this increase in value. Occassicr.ally a small farm is purchased with the intention of renting additional lard nearby to increase the size of business. This allows the purchaser to build up a better home than is often possible on a rented farm, and may be advisable where additional land is usually available for renting, but a man in this condition may at times find it impossible to secure extra land or to profitably intensify on his small acreage, and this should be given careful consideration in USCO led the national market into the $10.90 price range The makers of U.

A comparison of records of the flow of the Ohio river with those of the upper Mississippi and Missouri shows that although Its drainage area is but one-third that of the combined Mississippi and Missouri Its average and low-water flow Is 1.3 times as great as their combined flow, and its maximum flow Is 1.5 times as great. This fact is accounted for by the greater rainfall In the Ohio basin and by the gen eral character of the region. In the Onto basin there are apparently many opportunities for storage. always intended the 30 x 3Yz USCO to be the high est value in its field.

The volume of water flowing In the Ohio may perhaps be better appreciated by noting that a discharge of 1300.000 cubic feet per second would in one day cover o0o.i acres to a depth of one foot. r r first time in the history of our country there are more people working in factories than on farms Fifty years ago there were more then twice as many country workers as city workers. This not only means that the farmer has a bigger -market for his product, but that he is a greater buyer of manufactured goods, because an increasingly large proportion of the factory hands are making things for the comfort and convenience of people in the country. If we forget the year or two of hard times, now happily passing, we can see that farming is not a crowded business, and we can be sure that it will be generaly prosperous in the future. The man who gets discouraged now and leaves the farm because he thinks farming "doesn't pay" is making a mistake. Farm Life.
