iKEIGATTON IN PALESTINE. Whoever heard of watering a garden witA the foot? Certainly no one in the Occident, bus the Orient it is a 'n ily duty, says the Svndaft Of Home, incumbent on those who attend tc &e plots 'a which herbs and vegetables art- grown. In an Eastern garden the surface of tbt. earth is divided off into small beds each -abovir ft yard square. In these the .seeds are sown, and as irrigation is largely practised tho beds ant watered periodically. The water is usually brought from a near-by spring beu.g conduced 4fcrough channels to the bed-plot. But a rninia ture bank hinders the water from entering thi ttown bed- Here the watering with the foot' eomes in. For the cultivator, instead of using a oak from "•hitfh to water his seeds or plants, limn'v pusnes aside some of the earth bank w.rtJ his Lot and allows enough water to run in to aturate the little enclosure. In the same maa- aer he pushes baci ifr i earth and closes up thfl KtUe passage-way so recently opened. In thi; way, with only hip foot, and without lending bit back, the gardener ia able to water the plot nmi MflMroua beds ltiv.^cion.
THE FIREMAN'S lHAGtC TALIS. he said, as he mopped his brow with a fireman's handkerchief. "I used to know a gentle old cuss here on our run wh') d odd jobt and worked faithfully. Bp had a swest little flaxen-haired child. Can you use that? "Yea" Well, he used to come down town evenings 8Qd. we would meet at the Busy Bee to visit and play a game of 'Old Sledge.' We never played for the drinks, but we would often, when it was time to go home, offer to shake each other lor the drinks. I do not drink now, even beer." And what was this shaking for the drinksf w Why, nothing at all, only we shook dice fat tbt; beer, and the one who lost paid for it. Seel" "And how old war the flossy-haired child yom epeak of?" She was then twelve years old. At the time of the accident, however, she was about eighteen. It was a foggy night. We were late. You will XOtioe that I use good grammar. Put the printat on that, will you, please? Story firemen and ow Sneers always use poor grammar and spell • tie queer. They also swear a little and life The actual fireman or engineer does not dc that unless he is filling up a young person. We gene rally talk very little to visitors in the cab. for we bare to look out for our trains. We are not here to sit. for our photography Or tell ple^wig prevarications to people who get large prices per column for them afterwards; but we have a little open stretch of road here, and ao will talk between work, as you seem to be a pfoin man, barring the high hat, which has as Jausiness on a locomotive." "Wellt" Well, it was a foggJ night, and we bad to bustle not only to make our regular time, but to keep out of the way of late trains. It was tight along here that I looked ahead between IDOOpa of coal and saw a girl going down the teaok with her back this way, and I concluded the was crying a good deal, for she had her muff ap to her eyes all the time, and, of course, that kept her from hearing the train. We whistled, bat she didn't hear. I told Harry, and be 1& versed and all that, but I saw I'd got to get out Ion the pilot and help, no doubt; to I crept out there in just time to catch this fai young girl by ber blonde and beautiful Psyche knot and swing her free of the track." "And did you save bee?" "Yes, I saved her. It wasn't romantic, sad rou'll have to change it a good deal if you print tt; but that was the way it. happened. "Who was it?" "it was this little blonde girl of MQesto.* "And what did he say about it?" Well, first he didn't know what to say, aa8 then he says. for he is not a man of many wonJe. and also he is a poor -nan, but he did catch me ty the hand and his chin trembled, for she wo hm only child and her mother is dead, but he took a scrap of cotton waste out of my pocket rd wiped hi: lyes with it and said: 'Old man, cannot recall what fathers do when their deac and only daughters are jerked from the jaws of death, but if you will excuse the bluntness of a %UQ old man I will shake you for the drinka,
TRAVERS AND JEROME. W. R. Travers and the late Lawrence IL lerome, known always as Ijarry" were is. aeparable friends, though forever victimising tach other with pi optical jokes. Once the two were travelling together on a train it. the Soatb. Just before the conductor was expected to come through the car Travert, fell asleep. Jerome slyly removed from Travers's pocket the pass on which he was travelling, and, going forward several seats, sat down and simulated IIwnber. When the conductor shook him and eeked for his ticket, Jerome pretended to qearoJa through all his pockets. Then, knowing exactly what Travers would say under the oimuai- ttances, and imitating his friend's stuttering tpeeoli, he said: I'm W-w-william R. T-t-travers, of New ffierk. I had a p-p-pass, b-b-but I c-c-can't find IL I'm a b-b-brother-in-law of Mr. Blank, the president of the road, and I assure you it'i all tight" The oonduotor acoopted the explanation a ad Fid on. A moment later he shook tho sleep- Travers by the shoulder. Travers felt for pass and then, like his impostor frienc^ ■■arched through al* his pockets, the conductor IHgarding him with sudden suspicion. FinaMt |» stuttered out: "Pa W-w-william R. T-t-travers, of New Work. I had a p-p-pass; b-b-but I o-c-can't And H. I'm a b-b-brother-in-law of Mr. Blank, tba ■resident of the road, and I assure you it's aM right." I guess not," replied the conductor. Tow san't fool me, even with that stutter. Y 011'1 have to pay your fare or be put off." Jerome permitted Travers to work himself into 0 lage of indignation, and then interposed witk Mm pass and a cigar for the conductor. -New York Trill—
