I •<# pa b MS HE original cause of the trouble was about twenty j VU"M !n oirc"'!u^> At the end of that time It was worth It. Had you lived anywhere within CO miles of Sun- down ranch you would have heard of It. It possess- ed a quantity of Jet black hair, a pair of extremely frank, deep brown eyes and a laugh that rippled across the prairie llkq the sound of a hidden brook. The name of it was Roslta McMullen; and she was the daughter of old man McMul- len of the Sundown sheep ranch. There came riding on red roan steeds—or, to be more explicit, on a paint and a flea-bitten sorrel—two wooers. One ^as Madison Lane and the other was the Frio Kid. But at that time they did not call him the Frio Kid, for he had not earned the honors of special nomenclature. His name was simply Johnny Mclloy. It must not be supposed that these tVo were the sum of the agreeable Kosita's admirers. The bronchos of a dozen others champed their bits at the long bitching rack of the Sun- down ranch. Many ...

■aaaa—bi.ii. i ■.,. *-J By JOHN WHITCOMB R EVER END SAMPSON had Seen the pastor of a little town in North Da- kota for almost one year. He had met with a cordial reception and had worked hard to bring souls to repentance, but he felt at the conclusion of his first year's work that his mission to the Far West was in vain. His conversions had bocu few and he sremed unable to get into the hearts of his congrega- tion. He had prayed devoutly for divine strength and had summoned his hearers to be- lieve on Him only and to come to the cross without fear or reproach. The pastor's work was harder on account of the rough element in the little mining town. Not much encouragement had been given to preachers—those who had formerly served the people in this capacity had been poorly paid. The Rev. Sampson was no exception to this rule. He barely earned enough of what might be termed salary to keep him and*his family from want. Well educated and refined of temperament, he was somewhat sensitive on...

The muffins were burned, the coffec was spoiled, the New Year break- fast was ruined; and away in the study they heard the steps of the enraged minister pacing to anrl fro. But after the first great shock the sturdy heart of the minister's wife began to take courage; and although many a sigh es- caped her lips, she went about heating more coffee, and making more muffins so that in half and hour the little folks had quite forgotten the black spectre that had loomed upon them in the shape of a minister's robe. Leaving them at the table, the little woman went softly to the study and found that her husband was not quite so violent in his displeasure as she had feared. The Reverend Sampson was ashamed of his burst of rage that bad overpowered him and felt in his heart that if he had been sinned against, he was...

CRUISING FOR THE WHALE ' / Enormous Commercial Value of the Big Fish IKS: j , HE largest thing that ever lived on J the earth, in the air above or the waters beneath is the blue or sulphur bottom whale. Specimens of him have reached eighty-seven feet in length, with a weight of something like seventy-five tons. His enormous mouth is large enough to per- mit ten or twelve men to stand upright in it, while his throat has a diameter of only about nine inches, though this is plenty large enough fnr nrartiral purposes, as he feeds mostly on small shrimp. Roy Chapman Andrews, who made a collection of whales for the American Museum of Natural History, in New York, says that on Vancouver island five barrels of shrimp was taken from one whale's stomach, and it was by no nfeans full. Closely allied to the sulphur-bottom is the finback, which is the greyhound of the whale family. Built on the lines of a racing yacht, it can cut the waves with the speed of a steam- ship. Naturally, it has npt t...

If there ever was a favorable time for planting an orchard wiitl the expectation of getting money out of it, the time is right now. The majority of our commercial orchards at present are in a de- plorable condition, owing to more or less neglect and dry sea- . sons. Now our people have found, that plenty of good fruit means not only better health, but also a cheaper living;, thus, they want fruit the year around, and not only for a month or so, or the length of time our general •rehards can furnish them. When a number of yeam back it was found that the Elberta was a fine market peach and that it brought good money in the general markets bot...
