In all the older settled parts of the country setting out. plenty of fruit trees is the best method of making a rarm profitable, or of making it salable if it is desired to sell it. Nothing adds to the attractiveness of a country place so mucb as does a judiciously selected variety of fruits. This will igcure sale for a country place, when >ther more expensive attractions, such, is costly buildings, will not sell a riace in" ten years. People go to the lountry. not for tie costly buildings, irhich 'they have already in the city, Vtit for the special advantages which, iountry life can give them. Chief of .hese are fresh air. good water, and jlenty of the best fruit in its season. The country place that cm supply all these need not tens lack a purchaser.

Before night it was known in ramp that White's specimens showed 1,000 ounces to the ton. That meant about $16,000 a ton. In five minutes every one went craay. In the morning a party, headed by a brother of the mining king of later date. James G. Fair, called on White who was sleeping in one of the -shack's." He was told in a. few words mat he must pilot the men to his find, he should have the pick of the claims, and help to work it, but go he must, and oc h:is refusal was warned that his life would not be worth a dog's bark if he "stood off" the camp. Then he con- i seated, ,,-.,, The trail led down across tbe ROCK- j ies It was a very arduous journey even for the old miners, who seemed never to know what physical fatigue meant. It led along rocky trails, up and down canyons and across mountain crests. The first day was a race, and two-thirds of the men broke down. Half of the animals were lost, and the men were haggard with fatigue and excitement. White was told that if he played false he was a dead man, but he still pointed east. On the evening of the third day White said the miners were near their journey's end and tomorrow—and then he waved his Ion? arms, and such a yell went up fror the frenzied men that partly made th- pine-clad mountains shake.

It is mainly by what city p-eople call petty economies that people living outside" the towns have always made theii money. Their business is one that has as many details as t-tiai of the retail merchant to whom every penny is important, as its possession may mean profit to him, or thi failure to possess it may mean loss aid possible bankruptcy. The fan ,er, in selling his products, is obligw to get all he can so a« to meet his expenses. Yet farmers are not at all niggardly. Most '>! what they make over and above expense's goes in better methods of living, which make prosperity for everybody else.

Young women who contemplate par ticipating in the: pleasures of society this winter will do well to give especial Btndy to their footwear. Nothing is more admired than a shapely foot incased in a stylish shoe. Where the material renders it possible it is a good plan to have the evening slipper made to match the color of one's gown. When this cannot be done, have yonr gloves and shoes to match, of kid. The evening shoe is cut very low down over the instep, not altogether for comfort, but partly to display the embroidery supplied to this part of the stocking. Slippers cut extremely low have a single strap across to prevent spreading across the shoe. The slippers have rounded toe, but the design of the bead embroidery is in the old razor pointed style once seen in the shoe itself. Self colored embroidery has been abandoned for the :ontrasting tints. Even black silk stock- ngs have lost their soinberness with onches of vivid red. emerald green, pink cr yellow embroidery. White em- jroidery is used on black stockings by hose who do not care for brighter col- )rs.—New York Journal. Fancy Waista. Kegardless of the disfavor with which ancy vraists have been regarded by _eadiug foreign and domestic dressmakers and tailors, it comes from the highest authorities that they will increase rather than diminish in popularity during the coming spring and summer season, for the reason that tbe Russian )lous£i effects are found to lend themselves more appropriately and graceful- .y even to light wools and fancy goods, in silks, satin and silk aj;^,.^ Have the goods to advertise.

An agricultural elitor thus answers a. correspondent who wanted to know how to keep his suburban neighbor's hens out of his ga-den: "Dear Correspondent—Take a lot of small, stiff cards about 1x3 Inches; write on them; 'Please keep your darned old hens at home.' Tie a short string to each card, with a grain of corn at the other end of the string, and scatter them where the hens congregate. When the hungry biddy gobbles up the grain that draws the prize, she follows up the string, stowing it away until she comes to the card.
