"Sj? "LL go if mamma will let me."
£n Leona Jarvls stood ou the lit'
JL tie dock In front of their sum
mer cottage and looked down
teaslngly at the young man who was
holding his little catboat against the
p|—k| with one hand while he sat on
the gunwale and let the sail hang
loosely. lie frowned and certainly
blushed, though it was hard to see this
under the coat of tan he had acquired
while cmlsinK at>out the bay. During
i the past couple of months be had had a
i deal of thinking to do, and uoth-
I ing Is so conducive to concentrated and
i exhaustive thought us sailing about In
a trim and docile boat without regard
to time. And as most of his cruising
was done alone people seemed to think
that there was a misanthropic appro-
prlateness about the name of his boat,
the Alone. He never could convince
tbem that "Alone' r should be pro
nounced as a word of three syllables,
nud If he did convince any of tliein

After Leona had delivered her Ulti

house. As a matter of course she was

she snld, "and the only stipulation I

was swinging away from the dock she
called after them, "I wish you would
bring me home a nice, fresh blueflsli."
"Anything to oblige," Leona called
"Well, see that you catch something,"
replied the mother, und laughed.
Marvin Itolllns was too busy with
ropes and pulleys and the many little
attentions a lioat requires Is-fore she
will la; entirely oliedlent to notice this
little byplay of dialogue, and while he
was moving about the boat he was
banding cushions to Leona so that sho
could make herself entirely comforta
ble for the little cruise thnt he pro
posed. At last be had everything trim,
and they scudded out toward the open
sea where a fleet of Ixaita was trolling
for Itlueflsh. L<*»na amused herself for
awhile In watching how rapidly they
huddled together and then scattered.
Hl»* inquired the cuuso of these maneu
"When one of the U>ats strikes a
school of flsh all the other fellows rush
In to get their share, and when they
lots* tho school they scatter till some
one else strikes one, and then they come
together again."
At this [>olut Leona's attention was
attracted by something else.
"Oh, Marvin!" she exclaimed enthu
slastlcally. "i/ook at that wide streak
of oil we arc crossing. Does that mean
that oil Is coming out of the liottom of
the sen; that there Is a Texas gusher
under the Oreat South bay?"
He looked at her curiously to make
Sure Jlnit she was not (Miking fun at

"Ouslier nothing! That's simply a
chumming streak."
"And what may a chumming streak

"They ehop up mummies and throw
them overliosrd so thnt they will Boat
down with the tide and make an oily
streiik that the bluellsli will follow up
until they strike the baited hooks."
"How horrible! Hut I always thought
that mummies were preserved In splcea
and sin-h things, and not In oil."
"Oh, pshaw!" said Itolllns testily. "I

"Of course not, unless they can't kill

"Because gentlemen llsh for sport

could not help putting off the hour of
capitulation as long as he showed no
evidence of trying to escape. Of course
he had run away from her after every

in much the same way as a comet «o-*s
around the sun. He would approach
with ever Increasing velocity, just mt»»
embracing and then whirl off In the op

"After he has gone around the globd

of her cruelty she cared for hint as

Leona was quite comfortable anion#

giant who kept himself so busy with
the sail and tiller. But she made up her
mliul that she would not speak again

the more she felt tl *t she * was thor
oughly abused. In tAe first place, it
was humiliating that lSe shon'd let his
proposal be Interrupted by a in<te fis!.
It looked as If he cared mote for the
fish than for her. And tlxm the author

her about! She neTerthought hint capa

was Inclined to ad nitre tills sudden
new development of his character.
"It's the finest blneflsh in the bny."
he muttered between his teeth as he
still pulled heroically at the line. Time
aiul again the tlsh broke water anl
tried to rush -th» line so as to tear or
shake the hook out of Its Jaw, but It
had been too securely hooked, Indeed,
If It had not been hooked beyond all
hope of breaking away It would have
escaped while Leona wa» pulling at It
and letti'iK the line slip away from her.
At last with a shout of triumph he lift
ed the tlsh over the gunwale and drop
ped It on the bottom of the boat.
"Fifteen pounds If It weighs an
ounce!" Ufa oxplplfjtet}- f«' rl y sputtering
with Joy aud entirely oblivious or what
the advent of the fish bad Interrupted.
As Leona made no comment, he
glanced from fcls prize to her face. Its

"H'liy," h» asued with a pusaled air,
"aren't you glad I got the flsh?"
"Of course I am," she answered Icily,
"since you seemed to want It so bad."
"What do you mean?" he asked, still
more bewildered.
"Welj, ypu seethed to want that flsh
more than you wanted me!" she snap
In a moment he was back where he
was before the flsh had bitten, but such
were his excitement and exhilaration
over the capture that Instead of start
|PK to stammer apologies, as be would
uaturally liavo done, he started off on a
roar of laughter that seemed uncon
trollable. He was certainly develop
ing wonderfully today. But his laugh

laughing; "but the way you obeyed me

"I'll never ask you to again."
ner face suddenly sobered, for she
thought he meunt be would never ask
her to be hi* wife again, and now that
her nnger had turned to laughter she
wan only teasing again. He saw the
change and with another burst of
laughter brought the boat about so
that the sail was between them and the
Ashing fleet that was rapidly assem
bling because he had been seen strug
gling with the big flsh. Just what hap
pened behind the sail Is better ifuessed
than told, but when they reached the
little dock again I>>ona's mother called
to tbem:
"Catch anythingT'
And they both answered:
A ED<SEf" "1
Mlnat* Teeth, Like Thme of m Uw,
Make Its Ktnaicia,
The edge of a rasor consists of In
numerable points or "teeth," which If
the razor Is of good material follow
each other throughout Its whole length
with great order and clearness. The
unbroken regularity of theae minute
"teeth" goes to make up the blade's
excessive keenneaa. The edge acts upon
the beard not so much by the direct ap
plication of weight or force as It does
by a slight "seesaw" movement, which
causes the successive "teeth" to act
rapidly on one certain part of the hairy
gnmth. The best razors, according to
the mlcroscoplsts, have the teeth of
their edges set as regularly as those of
a perfectly set saw.
This explains the magic effect of hot
water on the razor's blada—the act of
flipping It thoroughly cleansing the
teeth of any greasy or dirty substance
with which they may have been
clogged. Barbers often claim that ra
zors "get tired" of shaving und that
they will be all right after awblle If
permitted to take a rest. When In this
"tired" condition a microscopic exam
ination of the edge shows that con
stant stropping by the same person bas
caused the teeth or fibers of the edge
to all arrange themselves In one direc
tion. A mouth of disuse causes theae
fine pnrtlcles to rearrange themselves
so that they again present the hetero
geneous saw toothed edge. After this
little recreation each particle of the fine
edge Is up and ready to support his
fellow, aud It agalu takes some time
to spoil the grain of the blade.
Verdi Was
When Verdi was putting the last
touches to "II Trovatore," he was vis
ited lu his study by a privileged friend,
who was one of the ablest living mu
sicians aud crltloa He was permitted
to examine the score and run orer the
"Anvil Chorus" on the pianoforte,
"What do you think of that?" naked
Verdi. "Trash!" responded the con
noisseur. Verdi rubbed his hands and
chuckled. "Now look at this," he said.
"Hubblsb!" said the other, rolling a
cigarette. The composer rose nod eta
braced him with a burst of Joy. "What
do you mean?" asked the critic. "My
dear friend," cried Verdi, "I have been
making a popular opera. In It I re
solved to please everybody except the
purists, the great Judges, the elus
slclsts like you. Had I pleased you I
should have pleased no one ••ls«v What
you say assures me of success In

Take sound barrels or any suitably
sized vessels of wood, earthenware or
glaas. never Irou, copper or tin. Clean
thoroughly and scald. Fill not mots
than half full with the cider atook,
which should have fermented at least
a month. To this add one-fourth of tte
volume of old vinegar. This Is a very
necessary part of the process, sines the
vinegar restrains tbe growth of chance
ferments which abound In the air, and
at the same time it favors the true
acetic acid ferment.
Next add to tbe liquid a little "moth
er of vinegar." if this latter Is not st
band a fairly pure culture may b#
made by exposing in a shallow, uncov
.red crock or wooden poll a iflixtu;
oue-balf old vinegar and one-half hard
cider. The room where this is exposed
should have a temperature of about 80
degree* K. In three or four days the
surface should become covered with a
gelatinous pellicle, or cap. This Is the
"mother of vinegar." A little of this
carefully removed with a wooden spoon
or a stick should l>e laid gently upon
the surface of the cider prepared as
above described. Do not stir it In. The
vinegar ferment grows only at the sur
face. In three days the cap should
nave spread entirely over the ferment
ing cider. Do not break thla cap there
after so long as tbe fermentation con
tinues. If the temperature Is right the
fermentation should be completed in
from four to six weeks. The vinegar
should then be drawn off, strained
through white flsnnel and corked or
bunged tightly and kept In a cool place
until wanted for consumption.
If tbe vinegar remains turbid after
ten days stir Into a barrel one pint of a
solution of one-half pound of isinglass
in one quart of water. As soon ns set
tled rack off and store in tight veeeels.
Usually no fining of vinegar Is needed.
No pure elder vinegar will keep long
In vessels exposed to the air nt a tem
perature above 00 degrees F. "Vine
gar eels" are sometimes troublesome Ju
vinegar Iwrrel*. To remove these beat
the vinegar scalding hot, but do not
boll. When cool strain through clean
flannel, iiikl the "eels" will lie removed.
In making cider vinegar the strength
of the product or per cent by weight of
the acetic add In It will lie a little less
than the per cent by weight of the al
cohol In tin- rider. A little of the alco

give the desired flavor or bouquet to
