i The Railroad Worm.
i From July to October Is the time ol
year to flght the apple maggot or rail
road worm. The way to do this la to
keep the Infested apples from rotting
beneath tho trees. This can bo accom
plished either by picking up the drops
ovcry few days or by maintaining
enough llvo stoctc beneath Infested
trees to keep the drops cleaned up.
Thero Is somo possibility that a few
of the worms that have entered the
ground to spend tho winter may stay
there for two years Instead of one be
fore coming out as adult flies. In
this case there would still be some
flics and some maggots In tho fruit the
nest year after picking up the drops.
But thero would bo very many less,
nnd if tho practice of cleaning up drops
was continued all of the pests would
be eliminated by tho second summer.
Iirjprovo the Fields Now,
If there nre stones, either small ot
large, they will readily be found by the
mower or rake. These nre always in
thp way, and where they can bo re
moved at a reasonable expense it will
pay to do so. Even quite largo rocks
can bo readily broken to pieces by dy
namite and got out of tho way, and
then it will seem a wonder why tho
work was not done before. If thero
are places where a little draining would
greatly benefit a field it will pay to do
this work at the first opportunity. It
should be the aim to do a little of this
work each year and reap the benefit in
future Increased crops.
Tile draining is credited with in
creasing the value of land more than
any other one thing. It serves to con
vert swamps into fertile fields and
hilltops into tillable land. It takes
away disease and lengthens tho sea
Bons. It prevents freezing, aerates tho
Boll and diminishes the labor of culti
vation. It destroys gumbo and re
moves alkali. It is the solution of the
problem of largest crops from fewer
acres and Is a part o the modern
methods of farming.
Saving Dried Out Stock.
Trees that have been out f the
ground for a long time, may bo fre
quently saved by immersing the roots
for two or three hours before planting
In water to which is added a small
quantity of fine pulverized bono or
superphosphate of lime.

Strange Provisions of Colo
nel Archard's Will.
In colonial times the rurnily .Utuie
was often the most important urticle
in the household. Tbe Arcnards. an
aristocratic family of Maryland, pos
sessed a very large Bible that had been
brought from England In 1WX) and had
since descended from father to son
When the Revolution came Colonel
Robert Archard adhered to the cause
of the king, influencing two Ot his sous
to do the same. His youngest son.
Carrol Archard, Joined the "rebels
and was banished by his father. Car
rol married Martha Curtis, tbe sister
of a brother officer In the Revolution
ary army'. Carrol was killed at ihi
battle of Monmouth, leaving his wife
to struggle for the support ot tbelr In
Not long after the colonies nad
nchieved their Independence Colonel
Archard died. He was a strange man,
and It was expected that his will would
contain some singular provisions. The
expectation was fulfilled. He divided
his property Into two parts of about
equal value, giving his oldest son, Rob
ert, first choice: his next son, James.
second choice. A third bequest was thp
family Blblo, which was left to the
widow and little son of Carrol Ar
chard in case neither of his sons pre
ferred to take the book, relinquishing
his share to Martha and little Carrol.
Whon the will was read Robert
Archard. after thoroughly Investigat
ing the value of the two portions, se
lected that which he considered most
'Robert Archard," said tho family
lawyer, who had drawn tho will, "your
father charged me to ask you If you
would relinquish your share to Martha
Archard and her son, taking tho family
"I will not," said Robert.
The lawyer then told James Archard
that it was optional with him to take
the remaining portion of the estate or
the Bible. James showed no more dis
position to give up his inheritance
than his brother had shown.
Before handing over tho two por
tions of the estate to tho brothers the
attorney addressed them: "I was in
your father's confidence when he made
this will. Ho told me of tho oxlstence
of Mrs. Archard and her son and was
undecided what to do for them in be
queathing his property. Ho determin
ed to leave all to his two sons, witfl u
request that they should find Mrs.
Archard and little Carrol and provide
'I told my client that in my long ex
perience in such matters I had never
known a legatee to part with any por
tion of his inheritance through an in
struction which was not obligatory by
tho will. I advised him that if he
wished to provide for his 6on Carrol s
family to do so by leaving a portion of
bis property directly to them. Coione.
Archard declared that he had perfect
confidence in tbe generosity of his sons
and that they would carry out any re
quest be might make of them. Never
theless he took the matter under ad
visement A few days later no sent
for mo and Instructed me to draw this
will, enjoining upon mo the duty of
making his intentions perfectly plaiu
to his heirs. He desired to leave either
or both of his sons free to accept his
inheritance or surrender It to his broth
er's widow and son."
"Our brother," said Robert, "was a
rebel and a traitor, and 1 Boe no reason
why I should give my property to his
widow and son."
"I concur with Robert In this mat
ter," said James.
"Then sign the 'papers, receipting for
your portions," said the lawyer.
When the signatures were affixed the
lawyer handed the brothers tho deeds
to their portions nnd locked the re
ceipts In his box. Then, turning to
the widow, ho handed her tho Bible.
"I am at least pleased," she said,
"that my husband's father and my
son's grandfather has shown a kindly
interest in us. The family Bible, the
most sacred treasure of the household,
will descend through my boy, and I am
sure it will have its lnfluenco upon him
and those who follow him. Take it.
Carrol, and nbide by its precepts."
She handed the Bible to her boy.
"Turn the leaves," said tho lawyer.
The boy turned tho leaves, presently
coming to a bank bill. It was for
"Take it," said tho lawyer. "It be
longs to you and your mother. Now
turn more, leaves."
One hundred thousand dollars in bills
was taken from the Blblo. The two
brothers, whose portions combined
were less valuable, stood watching tbe
child withdraw tho legacy, and when
the last bill had been withdrawn Rob
ert said fiercely:
"This Is not simply a Bible; it is a
portion of our father's fortuno and be
longs to me nnd my brother. We will
contest tho will."
"That would be Inadvisable," said the
attorney, "since you bavo receipted for
your portions, and if tho will la de
clared void tho widow's and her sou's
portion under tho law would bo a third
of tho whole, or very nearly what they
Tho brothers retired discomfited.
Mrs. Archard and her son lived com
fortably on tho income of their portion,
which In those days was a handsome
fortune. Carrol Archard's education
was well cared for. and be was gradu
ated from college with honor. During
the early part of the nineteenth century
ho represented his state In congress.

aro trimmed with narrow bands of
blue nnd French knots. Bands of the
darker staff and French, knots trim
tho collar, while the front is adorned
with narrow tucks and rows of but
tons. The Kimono BloUcc.
A new fancy Is the kimono blonso
made of eyelet embroidery, thin or
thick. The design is not very open,
and the blouse is cut in tho well known
jumper shape. It can be worn over
another kimono blouse of, china silk
white or colored, or it can be worn
merely over a dainty corset cover run
through with pink ribbon. It should
have a gulmpo of net or lace, as the
sleeves are rather wide and somewhat
short and expose too much of the arm
for any occasion except house wear
As it is quite tho fashion to wear flesh
colored slips under one's blouses the
Idea may be carried out with artistic
result under these eyelet kimonos. One
should finish the elbow sleeves of the
underslip with a three inch hem of
net, plain or dotted, or an equally wide
band of lace.
PANELED OR PLAIN
A Great Variety of Materials
Utilized In the New Suits.
In speaking of manufacturers' prepa
rations for fall trade the Dry Goods
"Much attention has been given to
the selection of materials for fall suits.
In the plain tailor mades cheviots,
heavy serges, fancy mixtures and
mannish fabrics are tho most desir
able. Somo of tho double faced cloths
nre being used for suits, but they sro
not so pmctlenblo as they are for
coats and therefore are not expected
to bo taken In such largo quantities.
"Many of the new rough materials
are being used In the better grade of
suits, as well as high luster broad
cloths, plain and fancy velvets and n
few cloth back satins.
"Tho orders now being placed on
separate skirts aro largely for the
more staple numbers.
"Black voiles and panamas, trimmed
with braid, satin, velvet or embroid
ery, aro again meeting with ready
sale. A few black taffetas have been
ordered, also black satins. It is ex
pected that some velvet skirts will be
sold, but the demand will necessarily
be limited. Serges, cheviots, fancy
mixtures and reversible cloths aro ex
cellent. "Panels of various kinds aro much In
evidence, and buyers think well of
them. The slashed skirt is beiug
taken in limited quantities only. Tho
slashed effects give promise of being
in good demand. A few of tbe late
models show tbe long tunic and somo
a- simulated tunic. These nro expect
ed to grow in popularity as tho season
Braids of many widths from sou
tache to tho half yard wldo bands
ore prominent, the bands seldom en
circling a garment or any of its parts,
but appearing in sections or panels or
half bands just whero they are most
useful in accentuating tho good points
of a creation.
Tho striped coat sets are In any
color that ono wishes, not necessarily
to match tho suit. Tho collar Is quite
long, deep at tho back and finished
with an edge of cluny lace or a hem
of colored muslin or linen to match
Dimple In tho Elbow.
Women who went to Paris this sum
mer had tho pleasure of seeing the
Stephanie elbow. Stephanie Is an ac
tress, and the elbow Is seen to best
advantage when she Is dining or sup
ping at a smart restaurant. Stephixile's
chief charm Is her elbow. Your first
Impression Is that It Is very pretty in
shape. Then comes a glimiwp of a
shapely arm with a gleam of ivory
white skin, and finally you see tho
dlmpio In the elbow.
Whether her arm is str.iight or heut
or lying long and graceful In her lap.
the dimple Is there. It Is not a thing
that depends upon position. Tho dim
ple is a fixture, and all who pass Ste
phanie's table can see It. It Is deep
and pink, alluring and pretty.
It was an American woman who
first tried to get a dimple like it.
"I must have the Stephanie dimple,"
she declared to a French beauty
That was tho beginning of the
beauty maker's trade. Now she has
done hundreds of elbows, and Stephanie
Is no longer the only one who has el
bow dimples, though hers are still the
most natural and the most youthful.
"How do you do It?" asked a woman
of one of the most successful of the
French dimple makers.
"My method Is difficult." was the
reply. "I use tbe knife."
"Dreadful," was the comment.
"Yet not so when you come to think
of It," rejoined the beauty artist. "I
merely make a cut, a sharp, not too
deep little incision, and when it heals
thero is a slight depression. It Is
really a sew, but it looks like a dim
ple." "But isn't It painful and dangerous?"
"It might be. But it isn't the way I
do it. and therein lies my secret."

Sleep as a Restorative.
Any number of women who are cut
ting ruthlessly Into their allowance to
swell the cash drawer of the beauty
parlors could solve the riddle of appear
ing fresh and animated if they would
but make a practice of taking the
proper amount of sleep. The value of
sleep as a restorative and as a fountain
of youth is unbelievable until one has
bathed regularly therein. It almost
seems magic In its effect, and many a
woman who has discovered the secret
Is the envy and admiration of her
beauty parlor friends. Eight hours
for work, eight hours for sleep and
eight for play Is the old rule. Up tc
now no one has improved on this pro
portion. If you care more for the
preservation of your youth and at
tractiveness than for your pleasure
take not less than the allotted eight
hours of sleep from the twenty-four.
