Cares and worries of life
are often too much, for
the delicate nerve organ
ism. Headaches come dis
tracting, peace destroying
headaches. But there's
Heataciie Powters .
Soothe and strengthen
the irritated nerves
take away the headache al
most before you know it.
No stnpefying, deadening drags.
Nothing that can aflect she hearts
At all Drat? Stores.

SOMERSET, PA., WEDNESDAY,
WEES MA'S AWAY.
Tell you what, when nib away
We bare jolly times, I say.
When we make a glorious noise,
There' no one to sing- oat, 44 Boys
Do be quiet V And at night.
If w4! f lay up late, all right.
We've a picnic every day
At our bouse, when ma' away.
We don't have to auy more
Scrape our boots e'ean at the door.
No one scold na wbeu we flgbt;
Facta washed or not, ail right.
No ore boilers u to stop
And pick up tbe things we drop.
In tbe alley we can play '
With tbe Smiths, when ma's away.
But somehow I bardly know
Course, it's fun as such things go.
Still, it kind of seems to me
Rather lonesome like, you see.
No oue round to smile, or sing,
Help a fellow do a thing,
'Splain the lensons every day,
Keep us straight when ma's away.
No cue bere wben things are blue,
Jutl to tell us a bat to do.
Cheer us up and make it right.
And talk serious like at night.

As I was leaving the office Baxter
called to me that if I was going to walk
home be would go w ith me. I was
going to walk, an I always do on nice
days, but I was not anxioua for hU
company. I could not think of any
thing that would turn him off, how
ever, so I replied, with what hearti
ness I could summon: "All right
The reason for my not wanting him
or anyone else with me was an absurd
one, and I had the grace to be asham
ed of mytelf even while acknowledg
ing its weight. For the last month I
had become foolishly in love with a
girl I did not know, acd the only time
I saw her was in the afternoon on
Michigan avenue, when I was going
back from town and she was coming
down. I did not always meet her, but
I always hoped to when I left tbe office
and I liked to be alone when I passed
her. Absurd as it may seem, another
person always seemed intruding.
Therefore I cursed Baxter inwardly
and talked business outwardly as we
left Jackson Boulevard and turned Into
It was a beautiful autumn afternoon.
Tbe grass in ihe park was still green,
and a freth, exhilarating breez-3 blew
in from the lake. She c mid certainly
not miss such a day for her walk, 1
argued, and fixed my eyes on tbe
stream of people flowing steadly past
me on the walk, tryiug to catci
glimpse of a trim figure iu a gray walk
I had often wondered where she went
every afternoon and even planned to
follow her, but I was positively timid
for once, and afraid to make an ad
vance which would give me informa
tion about ray unkuown. Possibly she
went to meet and walk back with a
lo7er, a brother or a husband. I was
rather iuclined to the brother idea,
though I don't kuow why. She did
not look married, and why should such
a girl care enough for any man to meet
him and walk home with him? Iso,I
was convinced that no such fortunate
She wore a black hat, tilted over her
forehead, aud she always gave me a
quick, comprehensive look frcm under
it as we passed. As for me, I fixed my
eyes on her and never took them oil"
until she had gone by; it was only by a
superhuman efivirt of will .ower that I
did not turn and stare after her.
We usually met near Twelfth street,
but to-day we had reached Bixteeutb
and I had given up hope, when I saw
her coming toward us. Baxter was
telling me some troubles of his, for I be
lieve he mistook my silence for sym
pathy. I was thinking that I had
never seen a woman walk as she did,
w ith just a suggestion of a f-wing, and
hvr head held high. There was a free
dom of movement about her that must
oespeak a mind vigorous aud active
a whole personality thoroughly attract
ive. I have forgotten to say that her
face was distinctly pretty.
We were nearly opposite tx her be
fore Baxter saw her, at the tame mo
ment that she saw bitix. S'je Lowed
aud smiled I had never seen her smile
before and just one little corner of that
one belonged to me, and with it the
swiftest of glances that set my heart to
Suddenly I realized that my talka
tive companion bad not spoken a word
since his muttered "How-do-you-do?"
looked at him. His face was pro
"What's the matter?" I asked. I
felt good-natured enough to talk to any
one, and I suddenly conceived a grtat
interest in Baxter he could tell me
who she was perhaps be tbe means in
time of my meeting her.
'Did you see that girl I bowed to
just now?" be asked.
"The oue in gray? Yes, I noticed
"Well, that's she ; that's the one."
"What one? Whom are you talk
ing about?" I was at a loss to account
for his toneof gloomy emphasis,
"The girl I was ttlliug you about.
Funny we should have met her just as
I finished. Well, you can see fur your
self that she is pretty."
I looked at Jim Baxter in absolute
"When did you tell me this history
you are alluding to?" I spoke calmly,
but I was agitated. There was some
thing tbe matter, with one of us, and
the effect of my question on Jim show
ed that there was no question in his
mind as to which of us it was.
"When did I tell you? For heaven's
sake, Ray, do you mean to tell me that
you haven't heard what I've been say-
iug tor tbe last mile ? You had better
consult a specialist if you are subject to
such attacks of mental aberration."
"I didn't bear a word," I said hum
bly. "To t:ll the truth. I was think
ing so hard on a certain subject that
my mind was incapable of taking any
thing else. Tell me again, and I swear
you'll have my individual attention."
"Thanks, but I won't trouble you.
That isn't the sort of story a man cares
about dwelling on, you know. And,
cose to think of it, it is better that no
one should kcow about the businetts,
In vain, I assured him of my inter
est in his affairs, of my desire and
ability to help him if he needed help;
he would tell me nothing. What au
uumitigated f vol I had been! I had
missed a chance to learn all about her,
and I might never get another.
"At least tell me ber name," I said
finally, in desperation.
"Miss " Norwood Ethel Norwood,
Wait do VOIl want to know her namo"
"Oh, Dothing," I said indifferently,
"I suppose she goes downtown to meet
some one, doesn't she?"
"Her brother, I si p pose."
"Hasn't any brother."
I had goue too far to back out "Who
does she go to meet, then ?"
".She goes to walk home with ber
sister, who studies at tbe Art Institute.
And now I should like very much to
know if Miss Norwood has aroused
your interest merely through her being
an acquaintance of mine? That con
clusiou is flattering, but doubtful."
To walk home with her sister? In a
sudden burst of joyous confidence I
told him what had been going on in
side of ine for the last month. I used
extravagant language to describe my
state of mind; I colored every trivial
incident to produce the rose-colored
effect of romance.
We had reached Twentieth ntreet,
and stopped on the corner where our
ways divided. I looked at Bsxtt r and
saw that he was as aniazed as I had
been a fe moments before.
"That's why I wanted to hear your
story, aud also why I didn't he-.tr it
because I've lost tbe little head I ever
had over your Miss Norwood."
"Aud so it's you!" exclaimed Jim.
"Well, I never!"
"You seem to enjoy being myste
rious," I replied, anuoyed at sueh
Another remark from hiui. "Is that
connected with a story which I am not
to be allowed to hear?"
"I'll walk along with you. I suppose
you ought to kuow." We turned into
Twentieth street "Whit I told you
before was simply this: Ethel Nor

world. We've always known each

told me that she was engaged to Tom

to treat me as though I were the only

I spoke last night aud she turned
me down without asking for time to
consider, even. She said she liked

I tried to feel sorry for Jim aud say
something appropriate, but I ci lidn't

"But the worst of it was that wben I
asked her If there was anyone else, she

I was disgusted, and told her so, aud
that the fellow was probably some one
not worthy of tying her shoes. She

The Orchard in Spring.
From the Philadelphia Record.
Orchards are now managed more in
telligently and tystematically than
they were half a century ago. Form
erly an orchard was a field that was
expected to produce a crop of grain or
grass with fruit as a by-product At
the present time the orchard is expect
ed to pay and is given care and atten
tion. Tbe experiment stations devote
a large portion of time in experiment
ing with froit, and the receut report of
tbe Hatch Experiment Station is given
exclusively to fruit trees, methods of
using fertilizers, treatment of orchards,
etc Although tbe experiments refer
to Massachusetts, they apply fully as
well elsewhere. A large majority of
apple trees do not make the growth
necessary to produce fruit of large size
and of fine quality. A large nuiuter
of trees are grown ou land from which
a e.rp of grass or hay is taken and but
Iitll- fertilizing material is applied.
Sometimes tbe land is too rocky to
cultivate. If tbe land is light in tex
ture thorough and contiuued cultiva
tion will be necessary to produce pro
fitable crops, but in stroug, deep soil
no such necessity exists if a liberal
supply of plant food is applied annual
ly. Choice fruit cannot be grown un
less the trees are made to produce, vig
orous growth of foliage aud wood. No
matter what the soil may be the trees
must be thrifty or they will be unable
to stand the drain of an enormous
crop, hence luxuriant foliage and
abundant new wood indicates that the
tree it.-velf is strong and in good condi
tion, for not only one year but more,
and the greater the growth of wood
secured the more advanced the tree
and the greater its producing capacity
in succeeding years, but it must be
kept in good condition by the use of
Numerous experiments made with
fertilizers, applied to both old and
young trees, growing in grass, lead to
tbe conclusion that such trees can be
made to grow with sufficient vigor to
produce large and profitable crops of
fruit The Hatch Station, after num
erous tests, found that marked improve
ment was shown in the growth of the
trees only when nitrate of soda was
applied as where all the fertilizing ele
ments were used. Bone, fish, wood
aslieti, potash, etc., were tested, but in
no case was as much growth made as
from nitrate of soda. The explanation
for this may be that the nitrate, being
quickly soluble, washes down below
the roots of the grasses and is absorb
ed by the roots of the trees, while the
nitrogen fro4? Sib and boue or manure,
being slowly 'iUsolved, is largely taken
up by the roots of the grasses, and the
trees get but little benefit from it The
test mentioned is with orchards in
which grass is grown. It is probable
that if fish, bone, manure, etc, are
applied iu the fall and winter tbe
nitrogen would be more available for
the trees than when applied iu April
or May. Youug trees iu constant cul
tivation will require less fertilizer than
trees grown with grass among them.
Stable manure should never be applied
in the spring unless the trees are heav
ily loaded with fruit or are making
weak growth. If youug trees, are on
good soil, and are kept under constant
cultivation, they should receive no
fertilizer or mar.ure until they have
set a crop of fruit A cover crop of
peas and barley (or rye) sown in Au
gust, to keep the land from washing
aud to supply some plant fxnl, has
been fouud of great value in all or
chards under cultivation, the advant
age of such it cover crop being that it
can be sown late in the season after the
trees have completed their grow th.
It has been demonstrated satisfac
torily that by thinning the fruit on an
overloaded treee there is a gain in
quantity and quality as well as the ob
taining of higher prices. The results
of thinning are that the foliage be
comes more vigorous aud more resist
ant to insect and fungous (tests, the
remaining fruit growing larger and
more perfect in size, color and quality.
The larvae cf tbe codling moth, the
insect which produces wormy fruit in
the apple, pear and quince, and tbe
larvae of the plum curculio, that pro
duces the wormy plum and cherries,
are destroyed iu tbe immature fruit
when it dries up or decays on the
ground, and much less labor is requir
ed to sort and pack the remaining
fruit when it is harvested. The cost of
thinning is not much greater than
would be the cost of the final picking
and sorting of so much inferior fruit.
Tbe best time to thin the apple, peaih
and plum trees of their surplus fruit is
early in July! The grape should be
thinned as soon as the size of the
buuehes can be determined, which
may be about the last of June. The
amount of fruit to remove depends
upon circumstances. In some cases
three-fourths should be removed. In
the case cf peaches and plums the
fruit should not mature on the branches
nearer than six inches aptrt if the
whole tree is fruiting. With apples
and pears the amount of thinning to
be doue must depend upoa the size and
vigor of the trees, but a!l wormy and
deformed fruit should be removed even
to the extent of taking the eutire crop,
as such fruit only increases tbe num
ber of insects the succeeding year, and
will not pay th cost of harvesting if
left to mature. In vineyards of full
growth from 10 to 20 pounds of fruit
will be all that each vine can mature
and retain its vigor.

A Home Where Ex-Convict are Al
Out on the Western prairie where
the wind gets a full sweep from the
west toward the smoke belt of Chicago
stands a stone front house which looks
singularly out of place in its surroundings-
It is Hope Hall aud it is con
ducted by the Volunteers of America.
Hope Hall is lbs idea of Mis. Maud
Booth, the good angel of the Volun
teers. It is a home for ex-convicts, to
put the matter very bluntly. For a
long time Mrs. Booth considered the
question of doin something tangible
to aid the men who are turned out of
the prisons of the country, homeless
aud iu many cases hopeless. With the
prison taint upon them it is sometimes
almost impossible for them to "keep
straight" Tiny must live, and living
is none too e'isy even for a man who
has never "done time" and whose
record cau be traced by his employer to
its beginniug. Cast thus upon an un
friendly world, it is small wonder that
so many convicts have records of two,
three or more eouviciions that they
drift bark into the unlawful ways
which end only within the stone walls
of a prisou.
It was these facts which beset the
mind of Mrs. Booth wben she sought
some method of agisting these men
whose ranks are beinj4 constantly aug
mented, and she determined that the
establishment of permanent homes
where the released convicts could live
until they obtained a foothold in life
again was the best plan. The home lo
cated on Austin boulevard is the third
"Hope Hall" to be established by the
Voluuteers in furtherance of this plan,
the first one being in New York city,
where its exact location is kept secret
that is, the Volunteers do not mark it
with signs as they do all of their other
establishment, nor have they per
mitted the New York uewspapers to
advertise its location. ,
Indeed, the address of the Chicago
"Hope Hall" was a jealously guarded
secret for a long time, Mrs. Bootb. hav
ing declared positively that no oue
save those directly interested would
know where the home was to be es
tablished, nor would its location be
ma ie known by any slus after it was
in working order.

May 15, Miss Florence Nightingale
celebrated her) birthday anniversary.
Hhe was born In 1S20, in the city of
Florence. She was thn youngest
daughter of a Shefiield banker named
Snooe, who took the name Nightingale
in accordance w ith the terms of the
will of one Peter Nightingale whcee
property fell to Shone. -
For thirteen years Miss Nightingale
devoted herself to the improvement of
hospitals. She became so well known
iu this wojk that when appealed to iu
the crying hour of hospital mismanage

and too: ip the task of life-iving.

Wheu a large proportion of coarse
foods are fed. with but a limited
amount of grain, the manure may not
be worth Uie cost of spreading it, un
less on a field very near the barnyard.
The average value of one ton of ordi
nary stable manure, which includes
tbe materials ruUed with that voided
by the animals, is $2, and the cost de
pends upon the hauling, as well as the
loading and spreadiug. Such work
requires a man and two horses, and
unless the manure has beeu well de
composed the loading and spreading
may be tedious work. Considering the
time of hauling from livery stables to
the barnyard, it may make tbe cost of
such manure more than its value, if
the distance is great, as the manure
must be loaded ou the wagon, thrown
out into the heap at the barnyard, aud
agaiu loaded ou the wagou aud hauled
to the field to be spread. At a value of

hausted. The best plan to pursue is to
keep stock otf the field and apply fer

grass does not show satisfactory effects
from such treatment plow the field and
plant with corn the following spring.
Wheu breeding for better cows it is
not expected that the herd will be
changed hurriedly. About oue half cf
the calves will be males, aud some
los may occur, but the dairyman who
will stick to the work of improvement
will in a few years have a herd of cows
that will produce twice as much milk
and butter as he now receives. He
will thus gain space Iu the barn for
more cattle of the same kiu-t, as oLe
gixxl cow will be doiug the work ef
two inferior ones.
Those interested in tliwer beds
should understand that when the
ground is prepared it must be very flue,
not a lump or clod to he allowed. As
the seeds of some kinds of flowers are
very small the only covering they
should have wheu planted is to sift a
little dirt over them. I'se only flue
compost, as coarse or uurottea manure
will sometimes prove ii'jurious to both
seeds and plauts.
Small farms cau be made to combine
many advantages. Some poultrymen
grow plums in the poultry yards, and
also keep bees. Others grow early veg

Where the field is full of thistles the
work of their destruction will be found
more difficult iu spring than in tbe
fall unless doue with sheep. Some
farmers throw a little salt wherever
they fiud a thistle aud the sheep theu

eventually results in the field being
cleared cf ouch pests.
The annoyance cf tlies to cows and
