and asked for something to eat. The

came back her gold-rimmed spectacles
were gone. She said to the tramp:—
"You've got my specs." - He denied it,
andi quietly , laying down the plate, she
went to a bureau, took a revolver there
from, pointed it at the tramp, and. told
him if he didn't lay thoie specs on the

from his pocliet and mildly laid them
down. "Now," said she "eat what I

and departed. When her son Augustus
appeared the old lady, again taking the

Within a mains of - twenty Mikig of

The farms vary in size from 80 to 800
acre:, with 100 acres to the average.
It is a grand sight to ride from Norfolk
among these big garden,. While the
land is saffiniontly elevated for drainage,
there are stretches seven or eight lapel

soil is wonderfully rich, and though it

last summer employed as ninny esl,7olfi

price paid for picking was two cents
