the hill was radiant and the sad colored foliage flaunted in newborn gayety Returning from the stable where he bad been looking after his horse the soldier stood for a moment before the Inn when a flower tell at his feet and glancing over his shoulder he per ceived Susan who was leaning from her window The venturesome rose which had clambered as high as the second story was gone plucked alas by the wayward hand of n coquette SaintProsper bowed and stooped for the aspiring but now hapless tlower which lay In the dust You have Joined the chariot I hear said Susan IFor the present he replied

bantering was at length Inter rupted by the appearance of the chariot and tho property wagon at the front door ready for tho Journey The rumbling of the vehicles the resounding hoofs and the resonant voice of tle stable boy awakened the young lord of tits manor In his chamber above Ho stretched himself sleepily swore and again composed himself for slumber when the noise of a property trunk thumping Its way down the front stairs a step at a time galvanized him Into life and consciousness Has the world come to an end he muttered No I remember Its only the players taking their departure But although he spoke carelessly the bumping of boxes and slamming and banging of portable goods annoyed him more than he would confess With the crazy quilt a patchwork of heptagons of different hues and patterns around his shoulders clothing him with all the colors of the rainbow ho sat up In bed wincing at each con cusslonI as well get up he exclaim ed Ill see her once more tho perverse beautyI And tossing the kale doscopic covering viciously from him ho began to dress Meanwhile as tho time for their go- Ing drew near mlno host downstairs sped the parting guest with good cheer having fared profitably by the patronage tho players had brought to the inn but his daughter Arablla looked sad and pensive How weary that and stale appeared her existence now With a lump in her throat and a pang In her heart she recklessly wiped her eyes upon tho best parlor curtains when Barnes mounted to the box as robust a stage artver as ever extricated a conch from a quagmire The team playful through long confinement tugged at the reins and Sandy who was at the bits occasionally shot through space like un erratic meteor The manager was flourishing hula whip impatiently when Constance and Susan appeared the former In a travel ing costume of blue silk a paletot of dark cloth and after the fashion of the day a bonnet of satin and velvet Su son was attired In a Jupe sweeping and Immensely

the moss grown roof nnd leaf clogged gutters and surveyed their preparations for departure How well the rich color of her gown became the young girl JbestJ ceretflonhud never seen her to better advantage with the blue of her dress reappearing in the lighter shade above the dark paletot In time lining of the bonnet and the bow of ribbons beneath her chin On my word but she looks hand some muttered the patroon Might sit for a Galnsborough or n Reynolds What dignity What coldness All ex cept the eyes How they can lighten But theres that adventurer with her ns the figure of the soldier crossed the yard to the property wagon No get ting rid of him until the last moment And he opened the shutters wider lis toning and watching more closely Are you going to ride In the property wagon he heard SaintProsper ask Yes when I have a part to study I sometimes retire to the stage throne she answered lightly I suppose you will ride your horse Of his reply the listener cnught only the words windbreak and lame He observed the soldier assist her to the throne and thou to Mauvilles sur- prIse spring Into the wagon himself Why the fellow Is going with them exclaimed the land baron Or at any rate he Is going with her What can It mean And hurriedly quitting his post his toilet now being complete he hastened to the door und quickly made his way downstairs During the past week his own ad dresses had miscarried and his gallan try had been loves labor lost At first he hnd fancied he was making progress but soon acknowledged to himself he had underestimated the enterprise Play had succeeded play ho could not have told what part favored her most Ophelia sighed and died Susan danced on her grave between acts according to the programme and turned tears In to smiles the farewell night had come and goneand yet Constance had made no sign of compliance to reward the patient wooer Now at the sight of these preparations for departure and the presence of true stalwart stranger In the property wagon he experienced a sudden sensation of pique almost akin to Jealousy Stepping from the tavern It wus with nn effort he suppressed his chagrin and vexation and assumed that air of non chalance which became him well Smil occupantsBarnes by the humid and turned to the property wagon The noise of your departure awak cued me he said to the young girl So f have come to claim my

the young girl It lingered upon each detail of costume and outline of feature Before she could reply Barnes cracked his whip the horses sprang forward and the stable boy a confused tangle of legs nnd arms was shot as from n catapult amongtho sweet wllllams The abrupt departure of the chariot was tho cue for the property wagon which fol lowed with somo labor and Jolting like n convoy struggling In

scanty living caring for the lent and never learn the value of the stalk HS plant und vegetable food fed back to the lend but snch is true- According to the authority of exprt chemists of various State experimental stations n ton of tobacco stalks shows an analysis which places the forMliz ing properties of tho stalk at 1200 to 1700 in comparison to the prices of commercial or mineral fertilizers nnd yet many farmers think it n nice little picK up when they can pack half n ton of stalks on a wagon nnd spend n day market ing the loud for 300 i r 400 and then pay three or four times as much for half a ton of mineral fertilizer to raise another crop of tobacco when the plant foo is the thing needed to produce quali ty This kind of thing makes Jordan a hard road for tho farmer to
