Farmers' sons and aaughters.and often farmers' wives, look longingly av?ay from their country homes. It Is often said that the isolation of the country is the strongest objection to it. Possiibly it may be with many. Charles Dickens once said that when he found anything in his own heart he elt sure that it might be found in other earts, since human nature Is much the same everywhere. So, speaking out f my OWE. experience, I say that one may iove his very isolation; may be to have a home that is quite away rom others, where one's very own may be gal.hered. Of course, I do not mean such loneliness as is found in the newer portions of the west, where the nearest neighbor is miles away; where he postoffiee is further still, and where churches are not. It is rather of conditions such as are to be found in our thickly settled central state* tnat . write. Jlissuming that the farmer himself I" satisfied, and would be glad to have ail the family equally so, is there anything he can do that will tend' m this direction? Leaving for <ie present tbe question of how to keep the boys and girls on the farm, let us consider how » keep the farmer's wife contented, see must needs stay.

The board of fire commissioners has decided that the big bay horse Jerry, which has faithfully served the city in the fire department for seventeen years. and is now twenty-three years old, •hall bt given hiB time for the remainder of hie days and be a pensioner on tie city. The horse and his mate were purchased by the city In the days of the volunteer fire department to draw ladder truck No. 1, and for several years they did this work, which is now considered a pretty heavy job for the three horses attached to the truck When the paid department was organized Jerry became a member of it, anc he has discharged his duties faithfully ever since. He is now entitled to be considered "aged," having served longer than the usual span of life allotted to horses, and the commissioners do not feel inclined to sell him for a trifle to some one who will perhaps starve and abuse him and render the rest of ais life uncomfortable; so they have decided that he is to have free hay am oats at the expense of the city as long u he lives.—Portland Oregonian.

Mr. W. H. Preece, tie well-tawnrn •lectrtcian, tells an amusing story »bont tae early days of the telepnon*. That the queen might test the new Invention, he put Osborne, Portsmouth and London in communication, and arranged that a band should play •while Her Majesty was at tne other tsA of the Instrument. The queen was detained, and be!or» she arrived the band had been sent Kwxf. But a happy thought itruck Mr. Preece, Wiy not him»*ll act as the b*n<J? He stepped to the Instrument and hummed into It "God save the Queen," and asi:ed if Her Majesty recognized the tune. "Tes," she said, "it was th« nation*! —but very badly played!" Few women of the present day have strength for the manifold tasks that fall to the lot of the farmer's wife. Many drag through the daily round, but are so tired that there is no pleasure In anything. So my first suggestion is, plan so that she may get more rest. Competent help In the home ta exceedingly nara to obtain, and many w<jmen prefer to do tnelr own work. H husbanda realized how like a last straw the weeKiy washing often is, ther would insist on hiring that part of th« work if the wife has no help. I fancy many a farmer will smile my next hint, that the chickens should be fenced out. of the dooryard. There are few women who do not love flowers. But it is disheartening to plant amd have tbe beds scratched over before night. The neat dooryards of the towns, with their flowers blooming unmolested, look very tempting to tt« woman who has carried brush and piled around the few plants that she has succeeded in keeping alive in spite of the chickens. There is so much more room in the country that there is greater opportunity to have beautiful home surroundings; the average farmhouse compares unfavorably with village homes in this respect. As an aid la making the home attractive, buy a lawn mower and use It. Flowers never appear to such advantage as when the beds have a setting of smooth green turf. If the yard must be mowed with h scythe, as is often the case on the farm, the grass will be allowed to grow jip and hide many of the more modest Wowoms. Perhaps the horses will be tnmed in to - graze it down, and to trample down the flowers as well. Sympathize with your wife in her Aobbr, whatever it may be. A hobby Is usually a very harmless amusement, and every woman needs something which will interest her enough to take 'her thoughts away from the wearing daily routine ot her life. The path of duty lies along this routine, and a conscientious woman finds a pleasure In doing tnat duty as well as shs cac. Sone the less, she needs somethinj outside oi It all. i 1 . The farmer's wife is shut up to the home life IB a greater degree than is irue of almost any other class of women. She does not simply work from sunrise to sunset, but from before daylight until long after dark. Sometimes tt happens that when all the chorea are done and iupper is over, the ouier members of the family gather around ,_a lamp with books and papers or games, while she must mend, or perhaps make new garments. Often the fliilv is so used to thia state of things as not to notice it. Tet in her heart the wife and mother may be longing to read. If some member of the famil> will read aloud she will find her task less wearisome, and all will be benefited by the discussion which is almost sure to follow. In my own busy days I read very little, but m? husband read aloud while I worked or mothered the babies. Now, with time to read for myself, I only hai; enjoy any hoot that is not shared with sorw one else.

A tribe of vagrant b«es, fallowing the lead of a near sighted old queen wHo had lost hear bearing!;, swarmed about Haswffll's drug store at the corner of 16th and Lawrence streets one day re- zently, and for a while had the corner all to itself," says the Denver Bepubllc- an. The unusual sight of thousands of honey bees buzulng around one o£ the busiest corners in toTm soon attracted a big crowd of people, who at flwt stood off at a respectable distance and looked on. The queen lit on the tail gate of an express wagon, and It was curious to see how quickly the bees swarmed around her until they were piled up a foot, deep, while hundreds of the insects buzzed around overhead or lit on the horse, on tlxe sidewalk aad on the clothing ot the bystanders. When it was found that the bees were pacifically disposed the bystanders moved closer, and some boys, bolder than the others, even picked up handfulii of the bees and were not harmed. Some one sot a packing box from the drug store, poured molasses in the bottom of it and placed it handy for the bees, but they did not move into tbe habitation provided. A big policeman, seeing tht crowd, sauntered up to find out wha* was the trouble. It was desirable in 'the interests of the public safety to get the bees to move on, but' he didrrt know how to go about it, so he had rtmaln on duty ancl wait for ments. Occasionally a venturesom* boy would stir up the pile of b«es, Ju*t to see the crowd scatter. The bees would settle on passengers in the open cars as they stopped just before cro«y Ing 16th street, and then there woulfc be a panic. Worn-en on bicycles ran into the cloud of Insects before they were aware of their danger, and screeching at every revolution, they scorched down the street, frantic with fear, just because a few dozen harmless bees were tickling them on the face, neck or arms. Wh«re the swarm came from or where they had set out to go was, of coursu, a mystery. Som« farmer around Wheatland or Littleton la probably the loser, and the owner of the express wagon now has a swarm of b«ee which he has no usa for. but wa» forced to take home with him becauw they took a fancy to his wagon and would not leave it. A young man who •aid he knew all about bees attempted to shovel the insects into a box witk a paper fan. They offered no resistance, tut would not stay in the box. and In the end the expressman had to drive home with a halo of bees encircling his head and the wai;on bed half full of bees.

It seems that Stanley had asked the question and the reply was "No." The great explorer went: to Africa again and after several yeiirs returned to London to find himself the most talked of man of the day. The thought of Mia» Tennant was still uppermost la tis mind. Wien he met her at a reception sh« made conversation by asking him, "Do you find London much changed, Mr. Stanley?" "No. I haveat found London changed, and I'm aot changed either," returned the explar- er, with his usual intrepidity, "have you?" "Yes, I'm changed," answered Miss Tennant, softly.

Thomas Carlyle,who once met Daniel Webster at a friend's house at breakfast, said: "This American Webster I take to be one of the stiffest logic buffers and parliamentary athletes anywhere to be met with in our world at present—a grim, tall, broad-bottomed, yellow-skinned man. with brows like precipitous cliffs, and huge, black, dull, wearied yet unweariable looking eyes under them; amorphous projecting nose, and the angriest shut month I have anywhere seen. A droop on the sides of the upper lip is qoit« mastiff AUDIBILITY OF THUNDBH. Conditions Limit £'l«t»nce »t Which It May Be Hoard, In connection with the proposal to establish a number of government stations for reporting the phenomena ot thunderstorms it is stated that while lightning may be seen and Us illumination of clouds and mists may be recognized when it is even 200 miles distant, thunder is rarely audible ten miles. The thunder from very distant storms, therefore, seldom reaches the ear. Hence, if every thunderstorm has to be recorded a large number of stations win be needed; probably one tor every 25 square miles would not be too many. A few stations would iufflce, at least for the reporting of the direction and movement of every case of distanc lightning. The reason of the great uncertainty in the audibility of thunder is not hard to understand. It depends not merely on the initial intensity of the crash, but quite as much on the surroundings of the observer, even as in the quiet country one will o!:scrve feeble sounds that escape the ear in a noisy city. Perhaps the most i urious and important condition of audibility is that the thunder vsave of sound shall not be refracted or reflected by the layers of warm and cold air between tbe observer and the lightning or by the layers of wind, swift above and slow below, so as to entirely pass over or around the observer. Sound, in its wave-like progress obliquely through layers of air of different densities, is subject to refraction, and this refraction may occur at any time and place. Thus, observers at tht topmast of a ship frequently hear fog whistles that are inaudible at sea level; those on hilltops hear thunder that cannot be heard in the valley; those in front of an obstacle hear sounds inaudible to those behind it The rolling »f thunder, like that of a distant can- oonade, may be largely due to special reflections and refractions of sound. Again, the greater velocity of the air at considerable altitudes above the ground distorts the sonnd wave and shortens the limit of audibility to the leeward, while increasing it to th* Windward.—Ptttsburg Dispatch.
