They found, upon examination, that the wound was not dangerous, but stated that the patient would be quite sore for several days. There is a possibility of blood poison setting up, though such a turn is not expected. It was purely an accident, Mr. Coy not knowing what caused his gun to to fire. He and Mr. Flowers are best friends, and the occurrence is greatly regretted by him, as well as friends of both parties throughout the town Yesterday morning, after a good night's rest, Mr. Flowers stated that he felt as well as he ever did, only experiencing a little soreness.

I was not so infatuated with Ellen but that I would be glad to hear the truth about her, whatever that truth might be; but, realizing that no one would tell me the truth. I was quite willing to keep my eyes open that 1 might learn it by observation. The moment I met Miss Blake I saw by her manner that the approval hoped for by my betrothed was wanting. As love is a spark easily enkindled, so is antagonism, though in this case the antagonism came from Miss Blake to me. I was indifferent to her. "How do you like her?" asked Ellen of mo when we were again alone together. "Very much," I replied with the usual untruthfulness in such cases. "How does she like me?" "She thinks you are splendid." "Tou don't mean it!" "Yes, and she predicts that we will "be very happy together." "Indeed!" "Only possibly for one thing." to be conspicuous. at this time engaged in locating Edward Griggs, civil engineer, was a railroad. A man who is interested in a purpose is like a gyroscope. Revolving in a certain plane, it Is hard to turn him to another plane. Griggs, when President Wilson's advice was promulgated, had nearly finished his work in Mexico and could not tear himself away from it He strapped a revolver about him, as did the orce under his command, and went on with his work. But neither he nor they had any thought of using their weapons. They simply wore them because every one else did. That Griggs might finish his work he was obliged to go over a certain section of the road that would pass through a mountain range. He was told that the region was infested with bandits who would not hesitate to take everything that belonged to him and if they deemed it necessary would murder him. But he must either abandon his work or go, so he I was doing so. But I proposed in such a position that she must decide between me and her bos om friend. I found an opportunity at the wins: table. If one desires to pick a quarrel with a woman an excellent way is to secure her for a partner, then point out her misplays. One evening when Ellen, her bosom friend, my chum, Jim Baxter, and I were together I proposed whist and insisted on having Miss Blake for my partner. By simply point-fuout to her in the most delicate manner possible her bad plays I final Iy sent her out of the room in a huff. "What have you done?" exclaimed Ellen, aghast "Nothing of importance. She should lie very much obliged to me for teach iug her the game." "You must undo what you have done at once." "There is nothing to undo. She will soon get over her tiff. I shall pay no attention to it. treating her just the same as ever hereafter." Ellen was much troubled. A few nights after this a dozen of us young persons were to have a little dance at Mary Blake's home. Before going there Ellen informed me that it would 4e better if I did not invite Mary to fiance, since she had said that if I did she would refuse. -Iudjeed," was my reply. "I'm very sorry to hear that" On the evening in question when jche piano began to discourse music for the twostep I stepped up to Mary Blake and asked her to dance. She bowed, said nothing and turned away. 'This was the end of my part of the little comedy. I knew that her refusal )to dance with one who had invited her an "her own home was an unpardonable (breach of good manners. However.

Ahead of them they could a way that Ellen would not realize see a ranch house, and from it emerged four men who had evidently seen and, mounting them approaching horses, made straight for them. They were dressed in the tawdry Mexican costume, and before they reached the two wayfarers the jingle of their spurs and the ge.wgaw adornments they wore were distinctly visible. It was evident to Griggs and Rodman from their faces as well as their actions that they belonged to that lawless element of Mexico which in peaceful times may by care be kept within the law and in troublous times are ready for plunder. They seemed to be especially interested in the travelers' horses. Griggs, who understood a little of the patois Spanish they spoke, heard them disputing as to which two should have their horses. One of them, called Jose by the others, seemed to be a. leader. He stood aloof from thf quarrel about the possession of the animals, sitting on his horse moodily watching the contest. Griggs, taking off his sombrero to this chieftain, politely begged that he might be accorded a few minutes' private conversation with him. Jose, not to be outdone in politeness, took off his own sombrero and. with a bow. replied: "Si, senor." ("Yes, sir.") The two men rode away for a short distance when Griggs drew rein and said: "Senor, I have been told that there are some persons in these mountains who make a living by plundering travelers. Will you oblige me by taking care of the valuables for myself and my friend that they may not fall into the hands of these miscreants?" While speaking he was taking his money from his pockets and his watch from his fob. The bandit took them, bowing low as he was handed each article. When the delivery had been made the two men rode back to and Griggs said in English r Rodman: "These gentlemen will keep our valuables for the present. Hand over of your pockets." Having thus robbed himself and hl friend, he turned again to the chief. "I would further ask your protection overnight Will you allow us to remain in your ranch till tomorrow?" "Si. senor." replied the chief, doffing-hisombrero. "You have greatly honored me. senor." said Jose when he had made his guests comfortable and set before them a jug of pulqae. "May I asfc how it is that you have intrusted yor.r valuables to a stranger?" "It is not only the honesty apparen" in your counten'ance," replied the engineer, "but I am sure that .you havf descended from some grandee who was one of the conquerors of Mexico." "How did you know that, senor?" "By your noble bearing." Here was a new sensation for one who had never before been trusted and who. like most other Mexicans, prided himself on having descended from one of the conquerors. He kept the travelers overnight; returned their valua bles and the next morning sent them on tfceir journey tinder an escort tin-parts went to put Ellen g body in perfect health, and our ran to the east, until we had sighted Inaccessible island and left it a hundred miles astern, was something to boast of. Then came a dead flat calm, which lasted for eleven days. On the fifth day of the calm two men were suddenly stricken with a strange ailment They were reported sick at 8 o'clock in the morning: by 2 p. m. both were dead: at G o'clock a third man was taken down and lived only two hours. Green coffee will sometimes breed fever on a long, hot voyage, but the symptoms of these men were so strange that some other explanation had to be looked for. No one was attacked on the sixth day, but on the seventh the captain, second mate and a common sailor all came down at once. The first complaint was dryness of the tongue. That was followed in half an hour by loss of sight and other senses and before noon all were dead. On the night of the seventh day a sailor v;ho h.ad lain down on the deck in perfect health and soundly slumbered for three hours awoke with a parched tongue. He did not wait to die as others had done, but groped his way to the ship's side and dropped from the rail into the sea. He was the sixth who had died, and the living were panic stricken. We had now lost nearly half our crew, and the ship lay heaving on the glass' sea without sign that the, calm was ever to be broken. On the morning of the eighth day there was a better feeling, however. At noon every man ate a hearty dinner. An hour later four men were taken down at almost the same moment, .iud the symptoms were more violent than in any of the preceding cases. There was no burial of the bodies; they were simply thrown overboard as soon as life had departed. When this had been accomplished, the mate called the living around him and said there was no longer any hope that any man would be spared. The captain's gig could be got at handily, and in case we wanted to take it and pull away from the ship he would help to get her in the water. The two sailors were eager to get off. but my- mind was quickly made up to remain with Mr. Merwin. When the mate and 1 were left alone he wrote up his log book and also prepared two statements, which he sealed up and cast overboard. That night when 1 went to sleep the bark was heaving about on the ground swell in the, same monotonous way, and Mr. Merwin sat at the table in the cabin reading a book. I slept the night through without a break, and it was sunrise when I turned out I looked into the mate's stateroom, but saw that he had not been to bed. I ran on deck, but he was nowhere to be seen. I called him and began a search, and it was a full hour before I gave up and realized that he was not in the ship. What had happened during the night 1 could only surmise. He had not wakened me nor left a message. When I fully realized that I was alone aboard of the ship 1 was so terrified that I hid away in the cabin for several hours. Things were not at all clear to me until the morning of the eleventh day of the calm. Then I awoke to find myself feeling as well as ever in .my life and ran on deck to find signs of change in the weather.

Any number of boys can play. The only implement required is an old' gunny sack for each player. The sacks are loosely rolled the long way, but not tied. To start the game, one boy volunteers to. be the bear. He chooses another boy for his keeper. The bear stoops, as the boy does who is "down" at leap' frog. If he does not bend his head far enough at first he will soon learn to do it. He holds his ankles with both hands, but with one hand he also holds one end of his own sack. The keeper holds the other end of the bear's sack in one hand, and in the other his own sack. The rest of the players circle round, watching for a chance to hit the bear with their sacks and escape being hit by the keeper. The keeper tries to touch one of the players with his sack. Whenever he succeeds, the player so touched becomes the bear, tho old keeper joins the players, and the becomes keeper until he can win his place among the other players again. Should either the bear or his keeper let go of either end of either sack and thus "break the circuit," the bear may be "basted" until the connection is restored. No touch made by the keeper counts unless both he and the bear have hold of the bear's sack. Thus It becomes an object of the game to strike at the bear's sack and break either his hold or that of his keeper or else to "disarm" the keeper by striking his sack with another sack and giving a quick pull as the sacks entwine. ex-be- ar Notice Are Behind One Year on our Subscrip tion Books Will have to Come off, Under the Law, if not Paid at once The Government Will Not carry Papers in the Mail for Parties who Owe More than one Year Concerning Fire. There are different kinds of fire. Have you ever wondered why the flame of the kitchen stove is blue, why the open gas jet and the incandescent electric bulb shed yellow light, why the gas mantle shines white and why the electric arc is blue, especially when you see it burning in the daytime? Tho source of the light is different. The old fashioned gas jet and the incandescent bulb shine because the carbon (or tungsten) in them is more than red hot. The difference is that the thin wire of carbon (or something else) in the bulb is heated by electricity and the fine carbon dust of the open flame (it is calle4 soot when it's cold), is heated by the blue flame. The yellow gas flame is not nearly so hot as the blue. That is why you should not turn up the gas too high when you are cooking things on the kitchen range. The gas mantle is white because the fabric is heated to a great degree by a blue flame inside, much like that of the kitchen stove, and very, hot The electric arc shines with the light from intensely hot carbon, but mostly from the oxygen of the air, which is raised to a white heat by the passage of electricity between the two carbons.

While there is now no question about the value and economy of silage as a feed, it is nevertheless a fact that thousands of farmers are still without a silo. The best substitute we have found for silage is dried beet pulp, which we commenced feeding soon after it-put on the market. Previous to using the pulp we fed the grains commonly considered best for dairy cows viz. cornmeal, bran, cottonseed meal, gluten feed, hominy, etc. in various combinations, depending on the cost of each and kind of roughage available. But we had more or less trouble from garget, caked" udder, cows off feed, and they would generally shrink in milk much sooner than we thought they should.

Money Saved is Money Made, The miserable specimen of a cow here pictured is tjplcal of the many useless animals maintained in this country- - Instead of being a source of profit such animals do not pay for their keep and are justly denominated "robber cows."

The Question Is a' Puzzler In Smith County, Kan. Smith Center, Kan. The number of toes possessed by a normal turkey remains a matter of conjecture in the district court of Smith county. Two men were before the court charged with stealing seven big gobblers and hens from a neighbor. The plaintiff identified his fowls by holes he had thoughtfully made in the web between the toes with a harness punch. "How many toes has a turkey, anyway?" asked counsel for the defense. The plaintiff had never counted them. One witness guessed four, another guessed three, and a poultry dealer of twenty years' experience admitted he did not know.

If fed dry cows should have access to water at least twice daily The rule we follow quite closely, but with some variation for amount of grain per cow, is one pound of grain for each three pounds of milk. The maximum grain feed is continued until milk flow is very small, when we reduce to from four to six pounds per cow and give that amount until within one week of her time to freshen. Each cow's grain is weighed, and we are exact about this to the ounce. By experimenting we found that to commence reducing the cow's grain ration as her milk flow diminished would cause her to shrink more rapidly, whereas if same amount was continued right along she would be encouraged to keep up as near as possible to her full flow of milk. We of course watch the cows closely and, if any uu favorable symptoms appear. , immediately reduce the ration, but this very rarely happens. By feeding in this way as the cow's milk flow diminishes she commences to put on more flesh, and the unborn calf also gets needed nour- SCOURGE OF LEPROSY 12-- 1 lG;eaa!2MatkelStreet,;Between;FirsKand.Brook IS ON THE INGREASE There Are Now 700 Victims Isolated In Hawaii.

Therd is no stallion so good that he will not be a lot better if he is worked daiiy in the harness and made to take his turn in all the hard labor of the farm. What is there about a stallion that he should be condemned either to a life of luxurious ease or neglect more or less total Few stallions kept for service in the country get proper care indeed few of them get any sort of care at all during the winter season Generally they are maintained on a starvation diet and allowed to grow hair several inches long, in which all manner of filth and vermin may collect at will. Stalls are seldom cleaned out and as for cleaning up the exercising yard, that is never thought of. "Why should so many stallions be kept in this obnoxious way? Take any one of the farm horses and submit it to the same treatment and it would go wrong in a short time. Why then expect a stallion to withstand such IU treatment simply because he is a stallion? No matter what the horse cost break him and put him to work. His giant thews and sinews, if he Is a drafter, will be a tower of strength in the gang plow and the mariure spreader. He will haul logs out of the timber with ease. If properly handled he is the pleasantest worker imaginable, because he is always unafraid and generally more intelligent than geldings or mares. It is all in the man who handles the stallion.

Well, every thing in Oklahoma is looking good. So much wheat pasture never was known, and fat horses and cattle in abundance, which is a great blessing to this country. As you all know the drouth hit the whole country, but It appears to me that we in the South West got the worst jolt, as ws had chinch bugs and grasshoppers both to contend with, outside of dry weather and hot winds, and consequently 'there was but little feed raised , but it rained in September, and has been wet ever since, and people got out an immense crop of wheat never any finer. We are living in hopes of a good crop in 1914. Corn is 90 cents per bushel, wheat 78 cents, Oats 60, and hay $15 to $20 a ton. Most of the farmers are feeding wheat and letting the grain dealers keep their 90 cent corn. Horses are cheaper than they have been for some time, but one can almost get his own price for a good milk cow. Steers and all beef cattle are high, but hogs are only $0.50 a hundred Fresh shoulder mpat is only 17i cents a pound. Now who makes the money on hogs? When the farmer feeds 90 cent corn to hogs and sells them on foot for $6.50, I can't figure any way, only for him to go into the hole. How long, O! how long is the American farmer going to let the dealers price the stuff he raises and the stuff he buys, and weigh his stuff for him? There are three ways for to get robbed, and as a rule in the West they are not backward about robbing. There is onp man in Enid that 17 years ago was buying grain and carrying it in a back room in a bushel basket (accoreing to old settlers y he owns a word,) and flour mill as large as there is in the State, several elevators in small towns around, and live3 in a $35,000 residence, rides in his big touring cars Now who have to content myself without built him up?

The recent change of rulers in the little kingdom of Bavaria, when the diet removed the insane King Otto from the throne and called as his successor Prince Ludwig, formerly the regent, brings to mind once more that contention against the legitimacy of the enthroued British dynasty. It. announces that there are still Jacobites who persist that the rightful ruler is this wife of the Bavarian king, who is also a direct heir to the regal state of Charles I. of England. But if these legitimists do now and then assemble to drink toasts to Queen Mary IV. and do use their own postage stamps, thus proclaiming themselves traitors, nobody in England worries and nobody outside the empire knows such a party exists except as a memory arises from history book days or when, as now, attention Is attracted to one involved in this conten tion. Year by year those who give allegiance to Maria Teresa as the rightful queen of England become fewer. Long ago the Jacobites ceased to trouble the minds of those who wear the crown. To all but themselves the whole matter has become little more than a romantic idea. Now that Maria Teresa wears one crown it cannot but mean a shadow to the enthusiasm of those who decorate the statue of Charles I. on the anniversary of his execution. It makes still more remote any chance that this descendant of the beheaded monarch or any others who may come after her will ever wear the British crown. She and her husband are firmly fixed on the throne of Bavaria. Their oldest son, Prince Rupert, is now forty-fou- r years old and popular among the people. He, too, has a son, a bright, handsome little fellow, twelve years old. Thus the line reaches unbroken generations into the future. But yet the Jacobites have hopes. Eagerly they watch the marriages and births in this Stuart line, hailing each new arrival as king or queen or heir to the throne, and eagerly, too, they watch the Hanoverian line, hoping that some breach may appear and they be given a chance to gather their strength and force their own "ruler" into his or her "rightful" place. Among us there are few who pay any attention to the study of lineage, but ancestry is too important a thing with kings and queens to be passed over lightly. So it is that the legitimists are able to trace the blood of their Queen Mary back through all the intricacies which come at last to Charles I. And, too, it is equally Important to them in an opposite way that they can trace the descent of George V. through the HanoVerian line to Elizabeth, a sister of Charles I. and daughter of James I, which makes the descent of this line one degree more remote than that of the Stuarts. .

Cleaning White Silks. To wash white taffeta and other .white silks proceed as follows: Having made strong suds by boiling white soap in soft water, allow it to cool to blood heat, or 100 degrees, and wash the silk in it by swishing it about and lightly pressing out the water with the hands. Then dip the goods In another suds of the same kind, press the water out once more and hang in an airy, sunless place until almost dry. pulling out all wrinkles from time to time. Boll the silk carefully over a board and let it lie wrapped in a towel until there is only a trace of moisture left. Then smooth it under a fine white cloth with a moderately warm iron. If a clear tone of white be desired add bluing to the water; If an ivory shade be preferred use the clear suds. Pan Dowdy. For this peel, quarter and core ten large or twelve medium sized sour apples. Put these In a clean granite kettle with half a cupful of water, one cupful dark brown sugar and half a teaspoonful of allspice or cinnamon. Make a very soft dough of one pint of flour and a heaping teaspoonful of baking powder sifted together and moistened with cream. Pat the dough into a flat cake and lay over the apples.

'Francois Blanc," said the judge, "what have you to say why sentence should not be passed upon you?" At eighteen I was a delicate girl in the doctor's care for some nervous affection the nature of which seemed to puzzle him. During this time 1 visited a friend of mine who lived in a city. On my arrival I was shown to my room, the two rear windows of which looked down into a back yard, but there was a side window which looked directly into another side window of the next house, the interval between being but a few yards. My friend threw open all these windows and left me to make my toilet As soon as she had gone 1 went first to the rear windows and looked out then to the side window. There, staring, looking at me, was my counterpart indeed, myself. I started, and she started. Then, covering my face with my hands, I turned away and buried my head In the pillows on the bed. How long I remained there I cannot tell. It was probably but a few min- utes, but it seemed a long while. I was sure that my nervous affliction had produced the apparition. I had seen myself once before In a dream, from which I awoke with a violent heartbeat, but I had not considered that a matter of moment. But now I had appeared to myself in broad daylight. I had before me the frightful prospect of passing Into insanity. Not for the world would I have my hosts learn of my infirmity. Some persons must tell of all their aches and pains and forebodings if only for sympathy; I concealed mine. As soon as I had pulled myself together I arose and without looking at the window where I had seen myself went downstairs without having changed my dress. I told my friend that I was a poor sleeper and hoped that in the morning I would not be awakened by too much light pouring into my room. She said at once that she must put me into another chamber, since the one I occupied faced the rising sun. This was exactly what I wanted, and I slept that night in an apartment facing the west. I intended to make an excuse to go awayfthe next day; but seeing no further signs of myself, I was persuaded to remain. My friends, who knew that I was in poor health, were extremely kind to me, and nowhere else could I find rest and comfort as I could with them. As I grew stronger a desire came to me to look out of the window where I had seen my double and perhaps I would see her again. But so great was my dread that I dared not go into the room to make the trial. I made several attempts to conquer my fears, but they were failures My hosts had lived many years in the locality and knew several of their neighbors, all of whom owned their own houses. I was invited to different social gatherings among them and shortly before I left the place was asked to dine next door, in the very house where I had seen myself standing at the window. I scarcely dared accept the invitation, and yet how could I refuse, for those who had invited me were very dear friends of my hosts? I tried to think of some excuse that would not be considered such, but tried in vain. When informed of the invitation I pretended not to hear, and It was accepted for me, with other guests of my hosts, since we were ail invited together. As the time drew near 1 thought I should make pretense of feeling unable to go, but within me was a secret desire to see if the apparition would come to me there. Between this dread and desire I hesitated till it was time to dress for the evening, then went up to ray room in such a state of indecision that when it was announced that it was time to be off I was but half dressed. Mechanically I completed my toilet and, going downstairs, suffered myself to be led out passively. The room into which we ladies were shown to leave our wraps was on the opposite side of the house from that which stood beside the home of my hosts. This was a relief to me. There was no reason for me to dread the spot where I had seen myself: but. then, a nervous person is not amenable to reason, and I was in a condition of nervous weakness not far from a general breakdown. With the exception of myself, there was a very homogeneous party, and even I after a glass or two of wine was sufficiently braced to eiljoy myself. The dinner passed off so pleasantly and I felt so stimulated by the wine I drank that I began to have a desire to visit that part of the house in which I had seen my counterpart. When we went upstairs for our wraps I ran up ahead of the others and followed the hall in the direction of, the place of the apparition. After turning at an angle I came to ajdoor which I opened and walked into a bedroom. Facing a window which I knew looked out upon the side of the house of my hosts was a pier glass. Never in my life have I experienced auch relief as when the fact occurred to me that I had mistaken my reflection in thfc glass for myself. No wonder my image started when I started. Closing the door, I darted around the hall, reaching the- robing room just as the others came up the i$ A & ENTER. i f w v xesx.sxsft r r , Wilson r"sK Training School safe place to put your children.
