A. sentiment is growing in favor with educators iu Pennsylvania to transplant x a little theoretical agriculture iu the course of oar school studies in a way that will amount to something- The authorities in the departments of agriculture and horticulture of thia state are airare of the fact that our soil is capable Of railing greater crops and for this rea •on they have started u revival of inter- Mt. While Pennsylvania is a great mining and manufacturing state there are at least 30,000 square miles of farm land under cultivation which will remain under control of farmers frr many years to conitt. The owners of the luad aud theit children are eutitled to encouragement itt a way that will lead them to obtain better results from the soil than has been done iu the past. Some of the far- Seeing authorities iu educational affairs •re ohtervlug that it ii a paying proposition for the people to have each acre yi«ld abundantly. TuU will furnish a home supply for our rapidly increasing population. Educators can not talk "farming" too much now. It will not be exacting too much of the teachers to become informed on soil conditions the same as they must be informed to pads examinations to each iu many states iu the west If the western part of the country can have agriculture tanght in their schools with success old Pennsylvania should be able to stand some in small doses. Perhaps less of algebra aud poetry in the common schools aud more of such talks would be a good thiug,—Greeueburg Press. TfcKTH ANA HEALTH. Uulesa your teeth are in perfect condition you cannot consider yourself well. Uooared for teeth cause more diseases than people dreim of. The combined surfaces of the teeth have an area of 25 square inches—enough space for a great deal of dirk to accumulate aod, large enough to hold million* of At a matte* of fact, ttu and months of uuhelathy persons are covered with tho greatest variety of disease germs, which often find splendid hiding places in decayed cavities and about unclean gums. Here they sfey until either they are driven outside by a thorough cleansing of the month or are taken into the body with the food. Germs of pneumonia and many other diseases are very often found;in the months of apparently healthy people. It is most important, therefore, that the mouth and teeth be kept clean. The teeth should last to the end of life A well-balanced diet, a sane manner of living and the brushing of the teeth at least twice a day, before breakfast and at bed time, will enable you to preserve your teeth as long as you need them. If is a good plan to have a dentist exam- me your teeth twice a year.

Visiting Katharine "What's the matter, George?" asked Bleeker when he and Wadley met at the same cafe table last Tuesday vioon. "Ton look like the last run of shad. Have you been sick?" "No, I've been up in the country," •aid Wadley. "You know Katherlne Morgan's people have a cottage at idunset lake. Well, Katherlne invited The to pass the week-end there. She 'said It was a quiet, restful place, so I decided to break away from the business grind for two or three days, If I lost my Job for it." "You did right," declared Bleeker. "Everybody needs a change once in a ! while." "Well, I had a change, all right," said Wadley, dismally. "Didn't it agree with you? Was it dull?" "Dull! I'll Just tell you what Kath- erlne, the-adorable, the untiring, absolutely indestructible Katherlne, arranged for my pleasure. "It was 8:30 Friday evening when ray train arrived. Katherlne was at the station with a carryall full of young people, who welcomed me most warmly. We drove to the cottage, •where supper was awaiting me. .After I dispatched that and was looking longingly at one of the porch hammocks Katherine announced that we were all to go down the shore a half mile to a marshmallow roast. "If there's anything sicky sweet In the name of food that I particularly detest it's marshmallows, but, of course, I expressed my delight at the roast and away we went. After about ten pounds of marshmallows had been consumed and the beach fire was getting low Katherine suggested that we have a few lively games to warm ourselves. Although I was really too tired to move, I Joined in the romp- ings and tore back and forth across the beach like a schoolboy for a half- hour or so. "At 6:30 the next morning a rap at my door woke me from a sound sleep. " 'Aren't you going for a dip?' called Katherlne, gayly. "I take a swim every morning before breakfast.' '•-' "In about five' minutes I Joined Katherlne on the pier. She dived into the water and I followed, my teeth chattering. She struck out across the bay. It was only bjc superhuman efforts that I managed to keep up with her. I had not beep. In swimming before this year, and I never was a ;strong swimmer. I proposed that we run home on the beach and Katherlne "bet nie a box of candy that she could beat me. She won. "After breakfast she challenged me to tennis, We played six sets before lunch. I was too tired to eat and I longed to stretch myself in a hammock, but Katherine said she was as hungry as a hired man, and she knew I must be starving, so I sat down at the table and was making a fairly 'irqod meal when Katherine told me to hurry,' for she had arranged a four- '•ome at golf with two friends of hers. "It was 5 o'clock when we finished flaying golf and Katherlne said we should Just have time for a swim before? dinner. When I was dressing after the swim Katherlne knocked at my door and told me to put on my dancing pumps, as we were going to a hop in the evening. •"Wejwent to the hop. Katherlne ••Was as blqoming as a rose. She introduced me to ejrery girl there and. I danced; every dance on the program and six extras. I don't know how I managed to walk the mile back to the cottage without falling by the side of Kathetme, who appeared to be doing a Marathon, so briskly did she walk." "I hbpe you got a rest Sunday," said Bleeker, sympathetically. "A rest! Katherlne had planned a walk around the lake. It was Just seven miles, and we got home In time for a 1 o'clock dinner. I was determined that I should sleep all the afternoon in a hammock.. But it was not to be. Katherine asked me to row her to Jhe far end of the lake to pick water lilies. We got into weeds where I could hardly move the boat an Inch without breaking my back. "In the evening Katherine had a crowd in for a Welsh rarebit and I was allowed to cut up four pounds of cheese. It was hard work. One of the girls came unescorted and Kath- erlne and I rowed her home across the lake at midnight and walked a half-mile to her house and back. SURE TO BREAK THIRD TIME Man Knew What His Spectacle* Would Do, 80 He Qot Ahead of Pate. A Jeweler in Brooklyn recently showed the humorous phase of superstition as it trouble^ some people. "A man came Into my store with a pair of spectacles he had dropped on the floor and broken," he said. "I have an optician with me. A price was given for the repairs and the work was done. When the glasses were delivered the customer said he'd been pretty lucky with them; this was the first time In three years they had been broken. But the next day he came around again. He had dropped them and they had broken within ten hours after they had been fixed. "'I want you to make a good Job of It," he told me, 'so they won't break again.' "He safd he would call for"trienT, V.'hen he did and when they were given to him he asked If I had a glass paperweight or something the least bit heavy. My medium-sized hammer was handy and I asked him If that would do, wondering what he wanted them for. He took the hammer from me and laid the spectacles on the floor. Then he took the hammer and hit the offending lens a hard blow. 'There,' he eald, as he straightened up, with the pieces In his hand. Tve fixed that. Now will you kindly repair them again?' "Naturally, I wanted to know why he had done this. " 'Superstition,' he replied. 'I've already broken them twice and there was sure to be a third time. I've brought that third time about so I wouldn't have to lose more time than necessary. Now, if you will have them fixed I guess they'll never break again!" HOW HE EVOKED THE WINDS Captain of Becalmed Vessel Was Driven to Desperate Sacrifice, But It Succeeded. The ship had lain becalmed in a tropical sea for three days. Not a breath of air stirred the mirror-like surface of the sea and the sails hung limp from the yards, like drapery carved from marble. The captain resolved to wait no longer for wind. He piped all hands on deck and requested all passengers to come forward. "I must ask all of you," he said, "to give me every match you have." ' Wonderingly, all obeyed. The captain collected every match' on the •hip in this manner. Then he threw them'all overboard—all but one. Then he took his pipe from his pocket and filled it with tobacco. As crew and passengers looked breathlessly on, he struck that one match— the only one aboard—and attempted to light his pipe with it. Instantly a furious gale swept over the deck. It extinguished the match, but filled the sails and the good ship plunged merrily forward on her course again. The sacrifice had been awful, but successful. Slow Stephan they all laughed at Stephan with the careless unkihdnesa of youth and the burden of their laughter was* that he was so slow. He even was slow j at resenting their fun at his expense.; , Like most big persons, Btephan moved) ponderously and his speech was heavy; and slow. Something In his mild blue eyes seemed to question, but that! was all the notice he took of the; others' taunts. The reason that he had so little* time to devote to worrying over his countrymen's opinion of him waa that Stephan's mind was taken up with Rosa to the exclusion of all else. He had fallen In love Instantly with her! pert little smiling face and charming;. ways. Rosa darted across the line of i - 3tej)han's vision and left him gasp-i Ing, figuratively speaking. Sometimes: he gasped In reality— that was when 1 Rosa turned the batteries of her quick wit upon him and left his mind; whirling because of hla inability to reply to one speech before she attacked him again. She laughed at' him along with the others, yet she did not seem displeased at his devotion. ^ Stephan was good looking, although^ this fact had never occurred to him. He was modest, and allowed hlmself ! to be elbowed out of the way byi others more audacious if less worthy, i Rosa was always surrounded by admirers and Stephan lurked dismally; In the background, patiently waiting! for a glance In his direction. Hoaa's' glances came his way at times. Wanted a Chance. One of the performers at Proctor's this week relates an Incident that occurred in a western to Wh.where "hb .waii playing an en«age;m6nt. Thiew was an act on the bill fa which 1 'apo- liceman had to chase a thief across the stage without catching him. The cop's part was so simple that It was always given to some employe of the house. There was a "prop" man in that town to whom this little task wa« assigned and he felt like a real actor. In the middle of the week's stand, Just before the act was to go on, the "prop" man said to the player who had the fugitive business: "Say, mister, let me catch you tonight, will you?" "Why BO?" "Well, my girl is in the audience tonight"—Newark (N. J.) Star. "It didn't seem more than ten minutes after I got Into bed when Kath- relne knocked on my door to see If I was ready for my morning swim. I answered brightly that I had already been In. Then I began throwing my things into my suitcase. At breakfast I Inquired about the first train to town. '"But George/ Katherine protested, 'I thought you were going to stay over today. There's a lot of things I want you to do. We "were going to play Indoor baseball and——' '"I'm terribly sorry,' I interrupted, 'but it's imperative that I return to my office this morning.' "It was imperative. I knew that If I didn't regain the rest and quiet of my desk telephone immediately I should be a total wreck. I fled and K&therlne's last words to me were au invitation to return for my vacation in September." "Will you go?" asked Bleeker. "Not unless I'v« been to a rest curt f Inventor of Ice Cream. "I am looking for some means of verifying a statement that Is printed at the bottom of the bill of fare In a colored people's restaurant that I visit once a month," a gas collector said. "In a red-letter footnote the proprietor calls attention to the excellence of his own home-made ice cream; then he adds that all members of the race ought to eat ice cream because it was invented by a colored man named Jackson. So sure does he seem of hla facts that he relates circumstances attending the evolution of ice cream from plain custard. The narrative sounds convincing, but colored people are so ready to vaunt the real and reputed achievements of the race that the ice cream legend may require verification." As to Giving the Bride Away. One pastor objects to the bride's father giving her away; she should be perfectly free, he argues, like the groom who gives himself away. "Is the bride," he continues, "a bag of potatoes, that she should be given away?" No, sir, she is not; nobody's giving bags of potatoes away these days. As between potatoes and daughters a father would hesitate but little before deciding to give away the (laughter.—Detroit N-ews. Indication of Interest. "The school mistress is interested In you, dad." "How's that?" "Why, today, after she'd told me sir times to sit down and behave myself., she said she wondered what kind of 4 fata«r " Stella, who was Rosa's most mate friend, jeered Rosa for being; fond of her slow admirer. "Why do you waste time on Stephan?" demanded Stella. "He is so big— and so slow! He never dances or anything! He just sits and looks at you!" "Maybe that's it," Rosa answered with a toes of her head. Stella shrugged her shoulders. "I like some one who Is gay, myself," she said. "Some one like Josef." Rosa smoothed her apron and frowned. Josef was very attentive to her. He had sparkling eyes and a little mustache, which he kept curled and sharply pointed, and he made, pretty speeches on the spur of the moment and was very sure of himself. Rosa flirted with Josef and led him on, but that was merely girlish coquetry, and she shrank from anything more. Of late Josef had wearied her. Stella, watching Rosa, burst out or a sudden. "I suppose you think you'll catch some one grander than Josef— but let me tell you — " Rosa turned on her. "Oh, Josef!" she mimicked. "Wiy don't you marry him yourself if you think he's so fine? I would if I liked him as much as you do!" Stella, routed, retreated, scarlet of face and vengeful of mind. Rosa, as if to prove her power, was kinder to Jcfeef and paraded him before Stella :;: 'lmid the others. .Perhaps this unusual leniency on her part really pleased i him, for he seemed more natural and sincere. Rosa even thought she had misjudged him. There seemed more to Josef than she had surmised — perhaps he was not such a shallow man after all. Before she knew how it happened she found herself engaged to marry Josef. All the other girls envied her and the excitement of preparing for the wedding bore her up. Rosa assured : herself that she was happy. This usually was after she had caught a glimpse of Stephan, in the background as usual, looking dumb devotion at her. Stephan had a very sober face these days. The thought of him irritated Rosa strangely. Once when Josef spoke slightingly of him Rosa had started to reply furiously, but bit her lip and was sullenly silent. She knew Josef would not care for her anger. She had grown to feel that he did not care deeply for anything. Stephen had been asked to the wedding, which waa at the church at an early hour, but he was not there. "He'd be late to his own wedding!" some one laughed. "So why not at another's?" Some one else was missing—the bridegroom. At first there was only restlessness on the part of those who were waiting, then came whisperings and surmises. After an, hour a messenger was Bent and reported that Josef had not been at home for two days. Stephan arrived as they ttere trying to calm the hysterical Rosa, desolate in her wedding finery. It was an hour and a half after the time set tor the wedding. For a moment Stephan looked at the weeping girl and hla hands clinched. Then quietly he walked to her aide and, brushing the others aside, bent over her. "Rosa," he half whispered, "look at me—it is Stephan. Forget that wretch of a Josef! I'll have the papers to marry you in half an hour if you'll say yes! You know that I love you!" Rosa's little hands clutched his sleeve and she went q.n his shoulder. A wonderful happiness was stealing over her. "I—I'm glad Josef is not here!" she whispered Drains Immense Wat«r*h»d. Tb« litstourt river drain* a <* MM*
