Diabolical Action of \y certain Plants in Mythology . The. traditional association ,of the j jpersonlfled Power of Bvil and a garden is, ot course, familiar to all, and the kindred or evolved traditions form one. of the most fascinating studies of . comparative mythology. But it t can scarcely be contended that It is tn any way due to this association that we find his Satanic Majesty fig- , uring BO frequently in the folk nomenclature ot flowers and shrubs." But such cases are by no means common; by far the greater number of diabolic appellations refer to some , physical pecularlty in the plant which is either, attributed to Monsieur; le Dlable, or suggests Its employment by or effect on that potentate. And when we come to consider the names in question we realize that It is by no means the Miltonic devil that Is . ..referred to tout rather the malevolent ..and sometimes rather contemptible - buffoon of the old miracle plays.

4 m GETTING THE HABIT OF GETTING THE HABIT OF ■ < THANKSGIVING. T' HERE is a beautiful legend of a golden organ "In an anclerit monastery. Once the monastery was besieged by robbers who desired to carry off Its treasures. The monks took the organ to a river which flowed close by and sank It In the deep water In order to keep It from the hands of thq robbers. And the legend Is that, though burled thus In the river, the organ still continued to-give forth sweet and enchanting music, which was heard by those who came near. ? Every Christian life should be like this golden organ. Nothing should ever silence Its music. Even when the floods of sorrow flow over it It should still continue to rejoice and sing. One of the secrets of such a life is found In the cultivation of the habit of thankfulness. Nothing less than this will do. Mqet people have brief hours In which their hearts are filled with grateful feelings, and when all the world seems beautiful to them. But these sunny ...

Virginia Farmer. EMPORIA, VA PUBLISHED MONTHLY LOCALS The New Presbyterian Church is in course of construction, and will be, when completed, the most imposing edifice of its kind in the city. A subscription list of over three thousand dollars ($3,000) has been raised. The total cost of the church Is estimated at about five thousand dollars ($5,000). Mr. Delaney, the Presbyterian minister, is an energetic young man, who has entered tbe work with zeal. On the second of November, the bird season opened. So far the season has been exceptionally good, as the conditions have been such that favored hatching and raising of game-birds. Our sportsmen, as a general rule, are careful not to violate the game laws. Consequently, birds out of season, have a chance to increase in numbers, and when the game season opens they are plen tlful. A radish, weighing thirteen and a half pounds, was sent to the Vir ginia Farmer office. This goes to show how well our land is adapted to the raising of garden v...

There are many splendid utensils tor kitchen use, but nothing takes the place of the old-fashioned iron pot for boiling meats, especially small hams or large roasts. But the best iron pots year thin on the bottom, and this IS frequently the cause of foods being scorched. It is advisable to remedy this defect by placing a small tin lid in the bottom of the pot; then there Is no danger whatever of the food burning, since it does not come In contact with the hot iron.—New York World.

ADVANTAGES OF SILAGB. • It is Usually estimated that It costs 70 cents'tio $1 per ton to put corn Into the : silo, but I know that my neighbors- and myself put it in for Ml ipents. to GO cents per ton.
