The jongleur had put down his harp in high dudgeon. "Am I to be preached to by a child?" he cried, staring across at Alleyne with an in flamed and angry countenance. "Is a hairless infant to raise tongue against me, when I have sung in every fair from Tweed to Trent, and have twice been named aloud by the High Court of the Minstrels at Beverly? I shall sing no more to-night." "Nay, but yon will so," said one of the laborers. "Hi! Dame Eliza, bring a stoup of your best to Will, to clear his throat.

FORESTRY AND HOMECROFTS ADDRESS OP GEORGE H. MAX* WELL, DEAN OF THE HOME CROFTERS GILD OF THE TALISMAN. Before the Biennial Convention of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, at St. Paul, Minn., June Fourth. 1906. MADAME PRESIDENT AND DELE GATES—LADIES AND GENTLE MEN: When I received the invitation to be with you here to-day and speak upon the subject "Forestry and Home crafts," as it is announced on the program, I felt that the occasion was one of so much importance, and the opportunity one which I so greatly ap preciated, that I ought to do some thing which I rarely do, and that was to at least think out a speech in ad vance. I was asked for a manuscript of it for the press, but I felt that it was unsafe to give it because I never did that yet that something tlidn"t happen that made me lay aside my speech and talk about something ol*e. I have a speech ; epared which was planned to last for half an hour, and there it is (holding up a card). Now, I have fifteen minutes to speak,...

Senator Beveridsre presented a rad ical amendment to the agricultural ap propriation bill the other day which was passed promptly. Back of the ease and celerity with which this ac tion was accomplished is a story. It is an interesting one too, for it shows how the President for once, at least, was able to bold the big stick over the Senate, and the great packing inter ests and forced the amendment with which he was in accord. The rider that was tacked on to the $7,800,000 appropriation bill in the Senate at the last moment without discussion, provides for the same sort of an inspection of meats for home consumption that is provided for those which are sent abroad. It will cost the great packing house industry sev eral million dollars eacli year, for they will have to pay for the inspec tion. When the question came up be fore Congress as to who should as sume the expense of this work the packing house lobby objected stren uously to putting up any money for it, notwithstanding the fac...

"As it stands, not one farthing shall you have with my free Will, and when I see my brother, the Socman of Minstead, he will raise hue and cry from vill to vill, from hundred to hundred, until you are taken as a common robber and a scourge to the country." The outlaw sank his club. "The Socman's brother!" he gasped. "Now, by the keys of Peter! I had rather that hand withered and tongue was palsied ere I had struck or miscalled ycu. If you are the Socman's brother you are one of the right side, I war rant, for all your clerkly dress." "His brother I am," replied Alleyne. "But even if I were not, is that reason why you should molest me on the king's ground?" "I give not the pip of an apple for king or for noble," cried the serf passionately.

NATIONAL FOUNDATIONS. PATRIOTISM IS TIME OF PEACE NhEDED TO SOLVE OUR NATIONAL PROBLEMS. We Must Plant Forests. Organize Better Schools, Make Homes For Workers and Rear the Children Close to Nature. -Menace of Great Cities. At the commencement exercises of the Michigan Agricultural College on June 20th, 1900, an address was de livered by George H. Maxwell. Dean of the Homecrofters Gild of the Talis man and Executive Chairman of the National Irrigation Association. The key-note of the address of Mr. Maxwell was the idea that we should bring to the constructive work of our social and commercial life in time of peace, the same fervent patriot ism and devotion to the public serv ice that would inspire the whole na tion if we were in the throes of a bloody conflict with the people of some other country. In Illustration of this he re ferred to our forest resources. The wasteful improvidence with which we have swept the for ests out of existence was contrasted with the elaborate care with ...

The course of the race ex tended from Gravesend Bay, New York Harbor, to Bermuda. Mrs. Robinson is the two months' bride of George W. Robinson, the owner of the boat. It was a daring race for each of the three email yachts that competed, but more so for the Gauntlet, because she was the smallest of them all, being only 28 feet long from bow to stern.

That's New England as it was fifty years ago. ... The civilization that lingers beautifully on the hillsides of New England, and nestles sweetly in the v%lleys of Vermont, the moment it approaches a crowd like Boston, or a million men gathered in one place like Mew York, rots. It can not stand the greater centers of modern civilization. "—Wendell Phillips.
