things home. By this we mean things
that nobody else n the house has

of pictures, of bric-a-brac of various

they crowd other clutter which the
average woman has spent a great
part of her life in collecting, and
which is found on all the mantel
pieces, on all the stands, on all the
tables and on all the walls of all the
rooms of the house. Then as the
children grow up they bring things
home that are dear to each one of
them respectively, and these, too,
must be kept in view.
But when all this is said, an im important

the family. There are instances in
which it has come to be regarded as

with disdainful hands, and with a sud sudden

her arms on the table.

herself, "there is one that I have for forgotten,

"You were very tired of the old,

"Why, a boy that age doesn't want
Teddy bears," answered Nurse Blair
scornfully. She thought for a long
while after the doctor had gone. At
last she went softly to Johnny's bed
and hung the football from the
Iiead. The little boy's eyes were
closed aud he was sleeping soundly.
The little helpless feet made tiny j
mountains under the bedclothes, j
Nurse Blair turned away quickly.
Morning came; the ward awoke.
Shouts and cries of delight were
heard. The day nurses went from
bed to bed, unwrapping packages.
Nurse Blair had gone to her room,
but she did not lie down. She came
back, tired but resolute, a half hour
before visiting time, and went to
Johnny's side. He was playing with
the ball, bouncing it upon the sheets.
It had fallen down six times, and
each time the nurse nearest had pick picked
ed picked it up again and returned It.
"Johnny," said Nurse Blair, "your
mamma will be here in a few minutes
"Yes, ma'am," answered Johnny.
"Johnny, what are you going to do
with that football?" asked Nurse
Johnny knew immediately. "I'm
going to look at it and look at it and
wish hard to be well," he answered.
''Johnny, when your mamma comes
she will see it and it will make her
cry to think of the time when her
little boy was strong and well. You
don't want to make her cry, do you,
"No, ma'am," answered Johnny.
"Then, Johnny," said Nurse Blair,
the diplomat, "suppose we put it away
when she comes and don't show it to
"Yes, ma'am," said Johnny. A tear
stole into his eye and overflowed.
He handed her the football. "Y-yes,
m-m-ma'am," said Johnny, gulping.
And just then the visitors came in.
Nurse Blair had taken the ball, but
i she had no time to conceal it before
the little woman in black had come
hurrying to the bedside, and she
stood holding it rather foolishly and
self-consciously and could not face
those searching eyes.
"I've brought him this and these,"
said Mrs. Ward, holding out the box
of bricks and the mechanical toy.
! "But you you've given him that?"
Nurse Blair stammered something,
but she could never remember what
it was, for the young widow had tak taken
en taken both her hands in hers and was
looking at her in such a way as "to
make falsehood impossible.
"Nurse," she said, "I want to ask
you something. Will he ever walk
Nurse Blair was silent. They might
have been alone in the ward, so
closely did the hum of conversation
hedge them in. Each was with her
vn that Christmas morning and had
no thought but for hers.
"Will he ever walk? Will he ever
stand?" The widow grasped the
nurse's hands tightly as though cling clinging

"Tell me," she pleaded.
"Never unless a miracle happens,"
answered Nurse Blair, and the wom woman's

child and smiled. Then Nurse Blair
understood why some of the Madon Madonnas

"Mamma!'- said the voice from the
bed, "I want to whisper something."
The widow knelt down, but the

"Do that again, Johnny," cried

HOW MANY ACRES PER HEAD?
A big land company, which was
very successful at first, and later
had a rocky road to travel, made a
great hit with prospective northern
settlers by proclaiming that ten
acres of Florida land was enough for
a family to live on. Its rule was en entirely
tirely entirely too short, as almost every
Floridian knows; nevertheless, there
are many instances in which it would
On the outskirts of Ocala lives a
man, a native Floridian, who has
made a good living for years on ten
acres. On the Anthony road, a. few
miles from the city, lives a settler,
who came here from Ohio, a semi semi-invalid,
invalid, semi-invalid, a few years ago. He bought
a 22-acre tract of land when he ar arrived,

leaving him twelve. Off this he has
made a good living for himself and
family, has moner in the bank, and,
best of all, has recovered his health.
This gentleman lives on twelve
acres of land, but his living, or the
main portion of it, is drawn from
not more than two. Taking the state
thru, there, are certainly hundreds
and probably thousands of such
cdses. It takes exceptional locations
and generally exceptional men to
produce such results, but that they
are often produced is amply proven.

UNDERGROUND RIVER OF

his little daughter years ago, and

she loved to play. Today those trees

With the Invalid.
A nursery ice box in the sick room
is a convenience not only to the in invalid
valid invalid but to the nurse. A bottle of wa water
ter water can always be kept there on hand
for drinking. Milk, too, can be kept
on tap, and other food can be stored
there from day to day. Any tin box
can be made to serve as a nursery
ice box. If you have an old bread box,
use that. Put a pan ih'the bottom of
it, and lay a wire cake tray, the sort
that youfput in the oven to hold cake
or bread tins, over the pan. Put the
ice on the tray, and the melting water
will drain into the pan. This, of
course, must be" emptied whenever it
is full. Put milk and water in the
bottom of the box, and put other
things around the ice, on the wire
tray. .There is an ice blanket which
helps keep the ice from mslting and
so reduces the cost of ice, and one of
these would be useful in the nursery
ice box. It is wrapped about the ice
or spread over it, and it is caid that
it is as durable as it is convenient.

How does this compare with what
many of you growers are getting
and being offered for your fruit?
The reason for this is co-operation,
high-class, specialized sales salesmanship
manship salesmanship in every section of the
country, and the fact that our
brands are so well known and, by
liberal advertising, our outlet for
fruit is constantly expanding, and
the "square deal" gets the business.
