When the Creator had made all the good things, it seemed there was stifTsome dirty work to do, so He made the beasts, and the reptiles and the poisonous insects; and when He had finished He still had some old scraps left over that were too bad to put into the Rattlesnake, the Hyena, the Scorpion, and the Skunk; so. He put all these together, covered it with suspicion, wrappad it with jealously, marked it with a yellow streak, and called it a Knocker. This product was so fearful- - to contemplate that He had to make something to counteract it, so He took a sunbeam, put into it the heart of a child, the brain of a man, wrapped it in civic pride, covered it with brotherly love, made it a believer in equality and justice, a worker for and supporter of every good thing in the community and called it a Bdoster; and henceforth mortal man has had the privelege of choosing his associates.

Owing to the war and high cost of living, there are many poor little boys and girl3 whose stockings will hang empty, unless some good brother or sister remembers them. As this is a time when all children anticipate the coming of Old Santa, with much delight, we should each and every one do all we can to gladden their little hearts.

"Billie, I have been talking seriously with yoUr father and mother about Bending you to a military academy and they asked me to talk with you about It." "Whoopee!" Billie screamed, like a wild Indian. "Now, hold your horses," said Uncle Dan, "and listen to me. You know I sent my boy, Howard, "to one of these schools for a year when he was about your age. He was narrow chested, stoop shouldered, rather loose jointed ; he had the big head and needed discipline and physical development. He was growing fast and I wanted him to be strong physically." "Say, Uncle Dan," said Billie, "I believe your description of Howard fits me pretty well, eh?" "Well," said Uncle Dan, "to be frank I think it does; you need the same thing. Howard did not like it at first. I am told for a few weeks he had 'rough sledding,' but after he found that the only way was to obey orders, he caught the spirit of the institution and liked It. We did not see him for about sis months, then he came home for a few days. We were astonished at his appearance.

"Now," said Uncle Dan, with great earnestness, "when such training does so much good, makes better citize"ns and at the same time fits a man to defend his country, why should not Uncle Sam furnish this training at the government's expense? The government has the right o call anyone to serve in case of and without training, a man Is worth nothing as a soldier. Uncle Sam has splendid new training camps that will soon be available for the purpose, therefore, here is double reason why the Chamberlain bill for compulsory military training should be passed at once, so that every boy physically fit may have this training and not leave it for his parents to pay for. Od account of the expense, not one boy in 00 can take the training now. I am glad that you can do so. These big crops and big prices, I find, make the farmers rather 'cocky,' and that the best is demanded by them." Billie was up with the lark the next morning, more excited and enthusiastic than ever. He had a plan. He knew Jimmie owned a colt worth 100 ; that he would make almost another $100 on his potatoes if they turned out well, and that he had from his previous savings, bought a $100 Liberty bond. Blllie's plan was to have Jimmie cash in and go with him. He was disappointed to find that Jimmie would still lack about $300 of having enough to see him through. His lip quivering, he said: 'Tm mighty sorry to leave Jimmie." Uncle Dan was silent a moment or two, then he asked Billie to go down to the orchard and get him some apples to eat on the train. While he was gone, it was arranged that Uncle Dan and Mr. and Mrs. Graham would advance the 'money necessary so that Jimmie could go. When Billie returned he was told about it He ran to the 'phone and called Jimmie, saying: "Come on over, run just as fast as you can, I've got the greatest "news you ,lever heard of." tfy of a candle, so bright is the light they graphic lens are very much alike In n give, and women on festive occasions design and operation Is a fact.

The share of Selfrldge in the battle had been limited to leg work only, but this had not been good enough to keep him from being overhauled and having his throat squeezed. Elliot finished breakfast and left Macdonald looking over a long typewritten document. The paper was a report Selfrldge had brought In to him Irom a clerk In the general land office. The big Canadian and the men he represented were dealing directly with the heads of the government departments, but they thought It the part of wisdom to keep in their employ subordinates in the capacity of secret service agents to spy upon the higher-up- s. - 'IM We nlu't' through "vfth Colby Macdonala jet," Trelawney explained.

Things ain't what they used to be in Alaska, and it's because of Colby Macdonald and his that's friends. They're grabbers what they are. They want the whole works. Understand? It's up to us to fight, ain't it?" Later Elliot put this viewpoint before Strong. "There's something in it," the miner agreed. "Wages have gone down, and it's partly because the big fellows are consolidating interests. Alaska ain't a poor man's country the way It was. But Mac ain't to blame for that. He has to play the game the way the cards are dealt out." The sky was clear again when the Hannah drew In to the wharf at Moose Head to unload freight, but the mud In the unpaved streets leading to the business section of the little frontier town was Instep deep. Many of the passengers hurried ashore to make the stop. Elliot put most of the on a pair of Heavy boots and started uptown. At the end of the wharf he passed Miss O'Neill. She wore no rubbers and she had come to a halt at the begin ning of the mud. After a momentary indecision she returned slowly to the five-hour f UW4 Aim A u u.wv. t'. 11r&u( vuuu. Ai&Att -- later."

The beautitul thing about the Gulf Coist. between New Orleans and Pensacola is that it is a real plasground, summer and winter-- a playground for northern folks from November to May, and for Southrons during the summer months. You can't sak for much more of placid nature than . has been expended on the gulf littoral between New Orleans and Pensacola. There are pine woods, forests of live oaks, all moss hung and mysterious, long stretches of winding, showed roads, woodland paths, guaint southern, hamlets and modern resorts teeming with jrayety and active life; lovely retreats where you1 can swing in a hammock all day and drowse in the narcotic air. And there is the sparkling water, the beach, the surf, boating, fishing anything and everything that calls from the salt waterside. Going South on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad, after you Mobile, it is impossible to escaps the infection of joyous living, even if you wanted to do that. At every stop throngs of people are going and coming youth and age alike, getting- on or off the trains. Laughter and breezy, sunny, fragrant air greet you. It is moreover a place of sane, natural outdoor joys in surroundings of homely comfort or of luxurious ease, whichever you prefer. It is a locality of ancient and honorable traditions and the natives are descended from Holders of the soil since the first days of the white settler. They make you welcome with a stately, southern hospitality, and have put at your disposal the best their home land affords. Every resort and every old plantation home is shaded by ago-ol- d ancestral oaks and grown over with trailing vines, roses anp perennials; and they all, look out over the gulf waters, at the dancing waves, the scubbing sails, the beach and the surf. If you can't find happiness down there in the golden sunshine and among the countless diversions and attractions of that playground, don't go south in the winttr expecting to find your "Promised Land',, for you'll have only your troubie for your pains. No choicer spot exists and greater comfort i3 not to be found. The winter climate is ideal, not uncomfortably warm, but moderate and bracking, putting snap and ginger into the system. Touring along the Gulf Coast is one of the ways travelers take to find their own particular choice and for this purpose the train service of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad is convenient You can stop everywhere, beginning at Mobile, and stay a few hours, a few days or as long as you vish. It is a facinating vagabondage that will bring you eventually to the place of your ulti mate desire. You can, also, if you choose, ship your motor car to Mobile and go in for regular touring along the gulf the roads are all good and the country is facinating in the extreme. History lends its background of fact to a long list of interesting tradition and romantic legends concerning this locality, ani the "atmosphere," while wholly American, has the foreign flavor insufficient degree to give it diversity and variety. Topographically, the coast lies low and curving, rising gently toward the hinterland, which is forested with pines, broken in the clearings, by rich and productive farmlands.
