AFGHAN WOMEN. MAKING A WILL WARRIORS OF THE BLOOD. THE BABY IN GERMANY. Aigh Caste Mothers Lead a Lonely, I Lazy Existence. If there are any women in the world who have a right to die of ennui it is those poor creatures of Afghanistan, the upper class dames. They spend their days doing abso- lutely nothing, for they disdain sewing, cooking and general house- hold duties. They leave the car© of their children to slaves, and they can neither read nor write.

In sum- mer she is always dressed in purest white. In winter velvets and bro- cades are not beyond her reach. She is generally an elderly person, with considerable influence and a good deal of authority. Then ther.e is another who is a sort of maid to the lady of the house. She is another person with whom it is not wise to quarrel. She is...

About 90 to 95 per cent of plants make very hard white heads, outer leaves very green and glossy. This is a crop that will stand our wet spring weather without injury, the only effect would be a later crop. The shipping season, if they are to be raised on a commercial scale, would be from about the middle of April to the last of June. The cost of the crop would depend very I largely on the cost of fertilizer, if j this could be supplied ...

The clairvoyant's sign had caught her eye, and for'a whole hour she had sat in the dark- ened, stuffy little room with her nerves all at strained attention. She went back to her room and, walking straight to the dresser, looked regretfully at the picture of a frank boyish face surrounded by A little plain gold frame.
