He did not know how much there

Miss Delaine was from Chicago. She
was visiting the daughter of Silas
Jones, whom she had met at school.
Miss Jones was tall, big and strong;
Miss Delaine was dainty.
Miss Jones, with the advantage of her
hoarding school years, dressed well;
Miss Delulne dressed belter.
Graham had suddenly felt a peculiar
sensation when Miss Delaine got off
the local at Naomi. He knew that Silas
was going to have company. He had
no Idea tlie company was built more
on the llis'ilng vision plan than any
"If Silas don’t feed that girl up he
will he all out of company,” Graham
had said. "She's almost gone now."
Graham was h husky fellow and had
been at Naomi two months when Miss
Delaine appeared. As Graham board
ed with SIIiih lie had mi opportunity to
study her well.
"No more turkey hunts while she’s
here," lie grumbled to himself.

Delaine brought down live to Ills three

Miss Delaine proved to have more

all over the barn door; she could cllinli
a cherry tree in n light summer frock
and come down iih neat ns she went
up; she could swim better than Miss
Jones and dive as deep ns Graham.
She could piny the most charming
waltzes alid sing the prettiest songs.
She had not been nt Naomi two weeks
before she was singing In the eholF,

covery Hull lie sang Imss.
So cm this night Graham consoled
himself by thinking gloomy thoughts
about Miss Delaine.
"I'd be a fool to ask her and a brute
to ex|»cot her to accept If I did ask."
He said this with almost a groau.
"Why couldn't It have been Fan?”
Fan was Miss Jones. "But, no; she'll
marry l.urkltts, and If Miss Delaine
was |sa>r I’d marry her.”
He knew she was rich. She had of

"Oh. we know that. You keep yer

"Robbery, eh? Won’t submit, eh?

Plowlii* With Oxen.
There can bo little doubt that the ox
was the earliest beast employed for
the plow. A white bull and a white
cow were yoked together to draw the
furrow for making the walls of Rome.
Greeks and Romans employed oxen in
plowing: asses only for sandy soils.
When tlie plowman had finished his
day’s labor he turned the Instrument
upside down, and the oxen went home
