For Sale' i] omemade Perfumes The Simple mysteries of the still- room are no longer included in the list ot subjects which the modern girl is expected to master satisfactorily be- fore she may consider that her educa- tion is complete; but even though professional perfumers have contrived to produce their essences so very in- expensively, the secrets of scent-mak- ing are still worthy of a little investi- gation, and the manufacture of home- made perfumes is a useful hobby that may be indulged in without necessi- tating any serious expenditure of either time or money. There are many methods for ex- tracting the perfume from highly scented flowers, but that of direct dis tillation is undoubtedly the simplest. To make the still, procure two tin oil cans, to hold from one to two pints, and about four feet of metal tubing-- tin for preference--from the tinsmith or plumber. Into one bottle put a pound weight of the petals of the flower from which the perfume is to be extracted, and pour upon them eight fluid ounces of alcohol. Cork th'e top of the can securely, and make a hole through the center of the cork, 'and insert the tube. Then stand the bottle in a saucepan of water upon a stove so that the water may be kept at the boiling point. Wrap the other bottle in a piece of flannel soaked in cold water, and place it at a reason- able distance, and pass the tube across to it, and bend it, and drop it loosely through the uncorked neck, until it hangs down to rather more than half the depth of the bottle. The alcohol which gradually distils over into this bottle will be highly scented with the attar of the flowers, and when the dis- tillation has ceased, the tube may be removed and the essence emptied from the cool tin bottle into small glass bottles, which should be securely stop- pered.--McCall's Magazine.

The vague depression that had been haunting Jean became poignant. She felt misused. I "Queer taste he has," she observed, i wtth a curl of her lip. Then to hide her pique she conjured a spirit of dar- Ing. "Oh, let's pass them! Do, do!" IIarold Buckley, ready to please her or possibly for reasons of his ova, en- tered into the sport and put on power with great abandon. Jean waa almost dellrious with the excitement of swiftmotion.

Jean felt a sharp pain in her arm as i she picked herself up; then the diver- sion of what followed made her forget herself. The blond heiress followed up her screams by an attack upon Harold, who had Just extricated himself whole from the, ditch. "Mr. Buckley, this is a great way to drive!" she cried in her high voice with its slightly foreign accent. "Why don't look at your road?" But she was instantly mollified by Harold's abject apologies and shook hands with him quite sweetly. Maurice, who had got to work with- out loss of tlme, had almost finished amusement. "Could you care that much for any one?" he asked coolly. "Oh, no"--hcr tone was matter-of- fact--"I couldn't! It isn't ill me." "Oh, I see. You demand it as a com- plementary quality in others."

Maurice gave Buckley his handker- chief, ordering him to bandage the In- Jured arm tight, and flew back to work again at the tire. Jean received V, feverish impression through her pain that there was a parley and almost an altercation. Maurlce seemed to be out of patience with everybody, and the heiress played ktm a close second. Jean couldn't see all .he time, but she heard Madge Racer's voice grow shriller and shriller. "No; Mr. Buckley must take the back gear with Miss Boyce. I'll rlda in front." But Mr. Buckley said that some one must stay with the.disabled machine. It came hastily to Jean that he sug- ge.sted Mauriee as the one ta d, this. At this Madge Racer insisted that they take Buckley's auto in tow. After what seemed hours to Jean she felt herself lifted up i.u somebody's arms, and the "next thing she knew the wind of rapid motion against her face brought everything clear to her. 3Iaurice at her side looked back grim- ly over his shoulder and swore under his hreath.

Still there was the counteracting an. myance of IIarold Buckley and the heiress. It Is true, she never realized that s'tm' eared for Buekley uitll she found that he was out of her reach. But Jean's self analysis could go no do.oper than this, and her state of mind became chaoti once more, when one afternoon IIarold Buckley called.

Monroe is an incorporated town of 2,000 inhabitants, situated in Snohomish county, Washington,in the valley of the Skykomish river, on the line of the Great Northern railway, fifteen miles inland from Everett, the county seat, and Puge t Sound. It is picturesquely sur- rounded with mountains,hills,rivers and valleys. It has a water sys- tem and an electric lighting plant, a state bank, and all the mercantile lines and professions are well rep- resented. CLIMATE. The climate is mild and does not go to extremes of either heat or cold. The ocean currents temper the prevailing winds, and at the same time bring the'moisture that makes all vegetation the most lux- urient. The heat of summeris not oppressive, and there is notenough ice or snow in winter to be of any consequence. There are no bliz- zards or cyclones. Good water is found everywhere, at an average depth of 20 feet. AGRICULTURE. The soil is very productive, and crops of all kinds do well. Pota- toes, hay and oats are the principal crops raised for shipment. Fruit and vegetables yield abundantb" The Alaska market keeps price'-, everything high.. DAIRYING AND STOCK RAISING. Puget Sound is the natural home of cattle, as grass is plentiful nine months or more, and feeding is of short duration. The number of cattle is steadily increasing. TIMBER AND MILLS. The country is all heavily tim- bered, yielding three to eight mil- lion feet to the quarter section, of fir, cedar and hemlock. Numerous logging camps in the vicinity en- ploy several hundred men all the year round. The natural lay of the country brings everything ont by Monroe from miles around. Four saw mills and five shingle mills are operated all the time. SOCIAL ADVANTAGES. Monroe has good schools, graded from primary to high school, with ten months school each year. The religious denominations represented are the Methodist, Congregational, Swedish Evangelical, Catholic, and New Testament Mission church. The fraternal and secret orders a o the Independent Order of Odd Fel- ows, Rebekahs, Foresters of Amer- ic% Modern Woodmen of America :loyal Neighbors of America, :(nights of the Maccabees, Ladies )f the Maccabees, and the Tribe of Ben Ilur. OPPORTUNITIES. The opportunities for both capir tal and labor are numeroas and of ubstantial nature. The location on the main line of the Great Northern railway insures a market for all manufactured wood pro:lucts and the fine quality of timber and its cheapness furnish the material. In agriculture the scope is wide and promising. Fruit growing and handling will yield a large return. Small fruit on a few acres offer op- portunities to people with limited means. Potatoes are very profita- ble. Truck gardening is in de- mand. Butter and eggs always bring good prices. The demand for men in the mills and logging camps is continually increasing. LOOKING AHEAD. For young men the opportuni- ties offered in Western Washington are greater than anywhere in the United States. The climate, the soil, the location and the rapid growth of population and wealth, will assuredly make this one of the greater countries on earth. " :1- r " ; ..... , ,-/:..  - .; . " . ' ,. .-
