Now—1 " And, with his blue eyca fixed 011 the bluer' hot-toon, Loi-d Garth let the reins fall on Kitty s neck, and fell to musing over all the pretty faces and fntt- forms that had been "on show" for his benefit dlirim» the London season, which was just over. For Raymond, ninth T'aron Garth, was ft decided catch. A umuslon and -a moor In Scotland, a family seat in 'Hertfordshire, a towti house in Park Lone and £80,000 a year, were prizes in the matrimonial lue-kv bag that no seff-respeetlug Belgravian mother could Iet> elude,; her, grasp without making at least orio''detcrmmcel''effort to obtain them for her daughter. Afld so when, about a vear ago, the news reached JCnjjlahcl of the death of the eighth Lord Garth, six weeks after his marriage, at an obscure little village In the heart of the great Italian marshes of Maremma, and Hay- uaondj his brother, stepped Into the title and estates of the old Garth family, there were rejoicings and self-con- .gratulatious on the fact from May-fair •to South Kensington. Matrons were glad because the new 'Lord was sufficiently retiring to be 'heart-free. Maidens.were pleased because >he was so "good-looking and had Just <enougli chivalrous tenderness In : .his air toward womou to Invest him Twith romance. And now, In the warm stillness of the August afternoon. Lord Garth had mounted his roan mare Kitty; and had •turned her head down the bridle path 'that wound across Garth Park and crept through Garth woods to the Dower house, intent on getting over & disagreeable duty and making the ^acquaintance of his brother's widow. » Hip had only been at Garthside two ttays and had spent that times in wandering about the farm.? and coverts • ~and over the wide fields with Batvson, the agent. The scent of the grass, the deep, clear green of the woods, the sleepy richness of the fast yellowing •cornfields, sufficed and soothed him for the 'first few; JiQjirs, vHp.jrey.e.lpd inithe; delights of; solitude, r.atll utter lunch' that day the conventionalities of life seized upon him. and impelled him to "get over" the necessary evil of nn aft-- «rnqon call, « ;''!People about here seem to like her —siifl's evidently quiet and inoffensive. .Itattaer a dowdy little women, I slioulcl Imagine: but I ought not to complain. •Cfia'ueJo was always odd.

Now,' Kit-" steady , youWe* ty— quiet, old lady— steady now now- — " , But Kitty liad. received a gresit bi noli 'of meadow-sweet full in the face, uud proceeded to show her displeasure at •such uncalled for treatment by trying to unseat her master. When, five minutes later, Raymond Tiad got the bettor of the startled mare, •find, hat in hand, was wiping his hot •face, he glnnccd •iromul with n »'luw of discovering whence the jnlssiile had focen thrown. • ]Te was In the heart of Garth wood. ,'iue ' sunshine filtered palely through •.he'.^hjclcvgrowing.-folia^;;, and made- little quivering pools of gold on 'the tangle of grass and flowery. On either Side of him swept, a car nut of lady •fern that swayed and rippled like a •.green lake In the soft summer -iilr. "Good cover for rabbits, hut no boy ctuld hide there. Besides, I must have seen his arm come up to throw. That .bramble thicket just ahead looks more likely - " and he walked Kitty slowly toward the ambush of his uiisnen foe. "Hush: Poppy, hush! I implore you. He'll hear you, he will, luleed. Oh! how could you do such a dreadful •thing!" It. was a girl's volco, low, hurried -and full of anxious vm treaty, that first caught Lord Garth's oars, .as, treading ':sileritly over > he "bracken, Kilty boro .him up to the thorn thicket. "Nell, what's the matter! Are you really angry with me? Are you— oh! Nellie, you're going to falut! Don't • darling, don't. What shall I do? Loan on me, dear— I'll got you out into the air," And, sure enough, fho thicket shook and cracked until Kitty quivered all over, and looked like "jumping about" once more. For a moment Lord Gmth was too occupied to notice anything, but when he turned from the fidgety animal in was to tind himself sharing the bridal path with two young -ladles. Yet, wore they young ladles? The taller and broader of tho two had so bedecked her white cotton gown with gveen grass stains; hep hands, largo and capable-looking, M'oro so tanned and scratched, and hejr rebellious ftu - burw hair rioted over her shoulders mid down to her wiUst in such ad' mired • disorder that a • yokel himself might have been forgiven hud he taken liar for one of! his own class. Her redemption, In Lord Garth's crit* ical eyes, came from her companion, a slenderly bxiUt girl with a dark, ovul face from which obvious pain and a threatening fainting fit had drawn every vestige of beauty "Oh, how you startled mo!" cried she of the auburn locks. "I'd quite thought you'd gone. But as you are here, will you tell me where i can get feonie water? I'm afraid— I think— this lady is frightened." B.ut Raymond had dis-nounted and now held up ft fold of the dark girl's vWte frpck. "This laiv Is hurt. She- she's covered with Wood. "Ph Nell— my dear, my dear! Whatever has tappeuear • , • Fop answer Nell nioved her right arm with "a little moan of pain.

" "By Jove!" muttered Raymond. •'That's a nasty business: but it will be worse if it's not seen to at once, Sit down— now let me rip up your Bleeye— like that.

JJUt when, ten mUrufwi latef, Lord Garth returned with ft huge jug of wit- ter hi his hand, neither girl, auburn ol' brown-hrtlfed, was to oe seen. "If it weren't for the mark Itt the! bracken to show Whefe she !«$, t should think the whole tiling had been a dream," muttered Garth into the depths of his fair mustache. "I half believe It must have been, only—only— Ihrtt my handkerchief is gone, and— and—there lies the bunch of meadowsweet that frightened Kitty. I expect that little girl got. that nasty thing in her arm in trying to prevent that young Womnn with the red hair nnd the crumpled frock from throwing those flowers at me. I wonder who they are? Girls from the town, perhaps—itadesmens daughters, I dare say—or they may be a couple of shop girls from London Who are lodging If), the village. That small one-Nell-looked awfullv white and thltu- ; 'l^it.f'IJsay,vKltt.y»-you and I must hurry, 6ri'W.et9Uii1l-be'too late to pay our respects to her little ladyship this afternoon." The Dower house looked its best in the nftornoon sun. and us 1 Lord Garths eves traveled from the tippet- windows, veiled behind daintily frilled curtains, to the veranda, strewn with a gay Utter of bright rugs and cushioned chairs, and passed through the low square hall and was ushered Into the "White Drawing-room" that was a. remembrance to him from his grandmothers dajs, lie could not help contrasting the intimate comfort, the occupied atmosphere with the dull grandeur and vnst emptiness of his own-big mansion.. ..... s .. , "Her ladyship is in her room.. I will telll her your lordship If here. "The room's very pretty, but rntaer untidy. I can imagine her little ludj- shlp being careless of such things. Young women often are, but I should hnvc thought 'hat the old lady, cousin, might have looked after the housemaids better." Lord Garth raised his head, and saw coming towards him, not an elderly companion and an Italian adventuress, as he had expected, but the two girls he had r met. in the wood not halt an hour back. , . •Both had changed their rather shabby cotton frocks for test gowns ol sou white crepe. The auburn curls of the bigger girl had been carefully brushed and were-now,, tied, back with, a wide blttck^rlbbohi^-whenco- they -foil in' a tawny mane to her waist. 1 he brown locks of tUe other one were • braided smoothly round her sinallirouud hend; her wounded arm neatly bandaged, was in a sling. She flushed slightly under her clwir dark skin as she camu slowlv toward Lord Garth. "So" you two runaways are staying here," he laughed. "You are as much surprised now us you Avore when I found you in the bramble bushes. J.nt I-have-.come to • see my sistoivin-law, Lady Garth." "This is Lady Garth," Interposed the auburn-haired girl. And then the two relations by marriage gravely shook hands. , „., "And your companion—your cousin? queried' Garth a few minutes later, when he had got over.his astonishment at finding that fche' fainting wood nymph and this self-possessed, quiet little person wore one and the stuno, arid his-brother's widow.-into.the bargain. Toppy is .my cousin, and my very dear companion. We've been . together all our lives, and I hope we always shall be." Garth wondered no more at tho newspapers on the floor and this kittens on the sofa, and he smiled at Poppy as she munched her strawberries, and cream, and shook her head like the torn boy she was. "You've not. altered tho old place much," said Raymond, as an hour Inter he stood in the porch awaiting Kitty. "No," said her ladyship. "I like the quaint old furniture, the cool chintzes and the English china. I've not altered anything In the house, only 1 have a great many flowers about," "Yes. I see you have." "Tell him about the stables," hissed J oppy in a loud whisper. Lady Garth'colored and laughed. '"Ah, yes!' 'Thei'stables de> want 'altering. They are dark and stuffy. I did not want to do anything without consul ting Mr. Williamson; but—but now "But ne>w that I am here, you think I will do as well," laughed Garth. "I go to Scotland In a week, but till thsn I am at your disposal. I will come over to-morrow at IT, and we can them sens what wants doing. Good afternoon, Lady Garthr *»*•**** "And so you really do go to Scotland to-morrow?" Raymond and Lady Garth were Iran- ing across the gate that gave entrance from the Dower Hemse shrubberies to the lumie farm. Both were looking straight before them through tho faint hnze of the September twilight. The-. Garth woods were waving great yellow and crimson banners in the evening breezo but th* fields that had been golden gay at tho time of their moet- ing now lay stripped and dark before them'•y £8 _j must I've put the Lowmm- sters off a score of times during the last six weeks and—and—" "You feel you want to go?" "I feel I ought to go. Besides, your stnbles are well on the re>ad to completion now; the workpeople will be out of them in a week. I've no reason now for stopping on here." His words died in a sigh, then he raised his two hands to his chin, and stared hardar than before through the ever-raising mist at the sad, bare fields. The girl at Ids side did not speak, but he fancied a faint sigh fluttered to meet his o\yu. ,',,., Presently Ms eyes dropped and'rested on the nair of loosely-clasped hands that Laefy Garth had thurst across the gate. How small, how pale they gle.-iru- ed through the thick grey evening: they looked cold, too—like marble. Almost unconsciously ho dropped one of his own, and with the forefinger touchec her smooth skin. Once, twice he passed it from the* dimpled knuckles to the slender wrist. Then it stopped at the foot of her marriage finger. "Why do you never wear q. wecldlnj ring?" Lftn> Gai*ffi strtttefl if am Ms sldet, d BWifttjMjttl.he? hands behind hef.

Nell, tossing her hat.MsIdo, walked ovev to the tea table, while Raymond wan- doral aimlessly toward his favorite seat ott the large sofa. Nell's back was toward him. What a pretty little figure she hadt How chrtrm- ing was the outline of her shoulders, and how sweet the turn of her throat as she bent her sleek brown bend over the sliver and china before her! He forced his gii'/.e away from so fasdna> ing a picture, and let. nils eyes drop' on some>, pieces.of scribbled paper at his side. • "Why, Nell, you might have told me if there was any tiling wron.g" • "But nothing is wrong." "Well. then, anything you wanted to know. You must feel that It Is a pleasure to me; to take all trouble off your hands." • "1 have no trouble, at least none that, I " tho brown head bent lower.

Why, hero Is a letter dated to-day, -beginning, 'Dear Mr. wmiiamsou," and signed, 'Yours faithfully, Eleanor Garth.' With a stauled cry Ne;ll rose from her low seat, dashed across the room, a id'snatched the street of paper from Raymond's hand. ICven as she did sev the door was flung wide open and Poppy rushed into the room, crying" out: "Oh, Nell, I've left all .ny letters •lying about. Only fancy ——** • • The words died on her tongue.

But. creameries are not always located^ just where they are needed. It takes a largo productive dairy district to supply even a small creamery with all the create it needs. There are consequently many farmers scattered throughout the country who must make their dream into butt r to dispose of it, and accept such low rates for tho product ab the country stores that there is little profit in,it.' The result is, they find littles; rnonojf ''in dairying evon with, good'coWs. It is in such places that co-operative dairying is to-day proving of groab value to farmers. Where the business is run on right principles money Is made much easier and faster than according to the old plan of making a little butter on each farm and selling it to the country stores in return for other articles. Of course there are some farms- situate. BO close to good markets that armors can make money in> pu.tting their butter up in fancy prints- for special customers. Where this is loseible iV is not advisable, to>.enter .nto a combination with the lie igh- joring farmers to make the button' oa ,he wholesale plan. To build a small separator factory ,n the neighborhood is a small undertaking; The whole outfit, including cheap building, a separator, ai email engine and cream and milk vats, should cost about $600. Some* .iraes n vacant building could, toe- used for the work so that these exr lenses could be deducted fronnthe- imount. Such a sum is not great ini a community where a do/,en or more 1 'armors are going to contribute -towards its erection. All of the- 'armors could then cart thoir milk, llroct to the .separator, where the cream could be taken off ami th'e- milk returned each day. The sep- iraior will do the work better and. quicker than tiny other invention. The,hauls will not bo long, as tho :armer» contributing will all be in;he immediate neighborhood. In this building the butter can bo taiade all at once and.after some one nothod, says the American Cultiva- ;or. .Such, butter'is, superior'to the imall amounts made at different irnes and packed away in the same ar. Plenty of ice can be supplied. ,o the separator company at a small cost per head. The manufacture of ;his butter must be given into the lands of one who understands the work thoroughly. Tho work can bo divided up among- a number, or one man be selected for tho work who .a known for his ability ( to manu- iacturo tho-.rigUt article. It is- almost as- easy to make a ton of butter-as it is to manufacture ton. U'nds, and all of the labor that is now spent on. tho inelividual farms will be disposed of." But, after all, ;he real gain is in tho selling. The-- juttor-will be-made in lair go quantities, .packed carefully and kept on ice until needed. In this way ar- angomonts can be made to send the butter to largo c-Jties whore cash can bo obtained for it. Cash should bo • ;aken, every time in preference to trading it out. By the latter course ;he farmer- always loses, for tho store Keeper imposes upon him wlthi double DiiokH. While often. >reasonably well mat bured ducks arc easleir to manage than almost any other kind of poultry, at the same time they require pood caro until they get well started; to growing, Probably orro of, tho most impoutanife items in their management during the early stages is to keep therm dry, not only keeping; them out of rains, but also out of the wet weeds, aad grass. If allowed to. got wet or chilled, in very many, cases it will prove fatal. So.that if hatched coi-ly it is very important to keep warm and dry, and if this is, done and they are well fed, thane will, bo but little difficulty ia keeping them growing, and with a. little ox-.- tra care they can bo kepi growing very vwpidly.
