TIME YOU WANT Most of the men and women who never do anything worth while on this earth say that it is because they can not find the time They manage to run around all the while and like the hen with one chicken spend as much time over one little thing as over a whole family They are bad mistake for time is not found it is that go by on the clock are simply what you can make it out ofyou can take the hours and of them make the time you want put them to some good account We make all the time we really use and we make it by using itr When we restIwe simplystop making time we shut off the call of the duties and needs which we ordinarily use in the time mills to make time out of anythinginyears agosome have moved hundreds of years in the last fifty Some old men arc merely children so far as things they ought to show for the passage of time are concerned some young men are old because they have made the time and used it It is the making andusing of time that counts There is plenty of the stuff that time is made of if we will only use it but we must learn how to change it into time well used This is not always done by making a great fuss and running around and hollering because we have so much to do Often that is just as much wasting time as sitting still with folded hands Some of the most useless people are the noisiest some of the quietest are the best users of time In order to make time weUeverybody must have some thing that they are trying to make with the time some design that they are trying toVorkout as a woirjan has tangledManygood designs in mind but they are too slow to decide which pleases them most Others start then get tired and try another so they never get anything done An other lot let things go as they may and take what comes Nothing comes for everything must be made That is the law of life Nature sees to it that no one gets any moral intellectual or spiritual wealth bysitting still and waiting for things to pour into their laps Wealth from all these things comes only from time well used and you must do it youwfelf If you want time for these great and good things do not wait for it it will never come make the time and make it by select ing a design then put ajl your thought and effort and devotion on it Thatis the way beautiful things and beautiful lives are made Condensed from The Outlook H IN OUR OWN STATE Lottery Indictments Found

good was accomplished and blessing brought to hundreds thru his teachings Only a part of the good ho did was In the converting of sinners It is always difficult to say Just how many of these there have been but in this case an index is furnished by cards which were signed These cards were pledges to servo Christ first and all the time and were signed on ly by those who had come forward and made a public declaration ex cept In ono or two Instances Thero were 293 of these Of them 63 were signed on Sunday night at the powerful final meeting As is al most always the case there were sov erul iu tho audience that night who were hesitating on the brink and who will probably be saved In tho work which will follow A largo share of tho credit for the work must be given to tho workers of Berea and

converts received a great blessing from tho meetings Mr Lyon refused to accept any payment for I his services except his expenses These were paid by tho College and the Union Church Many of the people

the best hand woven bed covers obtainable Tho total cost will be about 40 and as It is wished that all who benefited from the meetings shall have a share in tho gift the amount of each contribution

like a clean sweep for Tart and finishes Foraker The manager of Mr Tafts cam paign is to be Arthur I Vorys and he will be assisted by Frank Hitch cock who will resin as Assistant Postmaster GenEral A great fight Is being made in this state to beat Taft Mr Fairtbanks is tho man being used by tho Presidents enemies Just as Knox Is being used In Pennsylvania and other men are being used in other states The money that is beingtspent for these men all comes from tho same place and they are all out for Just ono thIngto beat Roose relt and Taft because ho Is Roose volts friend Every ono knows why

will bo taken at this Congress on the subject but a special session will bo called soon after tho next president is inaugurated If tho Democrats should win next fall tho Congress will go to work at

child to be solaced with smooth words 1 have seen I must believe though God knows the truth makes me wish a hun dyed times that I lay beside my poor disgraced brother It Is always painful to see one whom tre respect the prey of an emotion un controlled It was doubly painful tome to see this strong woman whose dominant quality was courage and calm writhe under the blow that deprived her tor the

woman who tortured us both ofIl004 at the threshold of the little left a malevoroom Helena had Just lent figure In her hour of triumph is I looked toward her tempted to ox pel her brutally from that room and 11 my surmise jaras false to force from hereven by violence If necessarVi the combination of the safe she withdrew hastily leaving Helena hnd myself alone It was thenthat I feared tho worst She had appealed to Hel ena She was confident of her One cessStm I held Helenas hands tightly In mine I wished to give back to herI her poise her calm courage Mr Haddon she whispered pres fcntly do you hlnkIs it possible to do this thing It Is possible but It would be tint wet of a madman and a liar I said gently You eay It Is possible She with drew her hands almost roughly Her voice was monotonous and harsh Then you will save us mother ant myself from this deep disgrace There Is no service that I would not do for you Miss Brett that would tiring you peace and happiness Peace Happiness she Interrupt ed with fierce remonstrance I do not look for peace oc happiness Honor Itselfand the motto of the Brotts Is Honor Sword can no longer he our proud boast Cut If silence can ho purchased It must be I dare not let my brothers name be held In reproach I dare not I cannot for hit mothers sake let It be known that he has been false to England We may yet save him If Yes she broke In with a strange exultancy that was even more dread ful to mo than her despair and It Is you whom I have despised that Is to save us A life for a life those were the words I said to you at Lucerne Now it is to bo dishonor for dishonor 1 am asking you a terrible sacrifice I am drugging you with mo to tho depths But there Is no other to help us Say that you will Your grief robs you ot your reason I said gently Escape Is not to ije found In that way It Is tho last hope of a desperate and unscrupulous ndvcnturees who has herself little hope of success It is pier last card and she will lose nothing by playing It But we you and I we risk everything Ah you refuse You are afraid of the risks I might have known you would be afraid That woman said that it was hopeless to ask a service to heroic from one who was a proven Oh forgive me 1 did not mean to cay that Miss Brett I think there Is no dts grace I would not gladly endure to help you I sworo to rescue your brothers honor If It were possible If I could do so now though I sacrificed myself I tell you I would More than that though every Instinct tells me that I should fall I will do what you ask oven cow- Heaven bless you She cried brokenlr Hut first of alt I want you to realize clearly Jist what you are asking I want you to bo quite sure that you are act adding dishonor to dishonor In asking mo to do this thing No It Ii not that I am afraid I havo not that llnd of fear But I think that neither of us should be so cowardly as to yield to Mils womans demands In tho ora tory yonder lies your brother Ask yourself when you see him If It Is merely the merciful hand of death that has smoothed his forehead or whether tho calm and serenity Is that of a man who held tho motto of his house lion or My Sword This appeal was perhaps not wholly ulnccro One cannot deny facts bee auso one wishes to It still seemed to mo that it must be true that Sir Mortimer was proven guilty of taking bribes Nor did I dare tell Helena now of my wild conjecture I dared not raise her hopes at the risk of a speedy dis illusionment Onco the papers were In my possession together we could defy Madame de Vurnlor And If dls ipoiutment was to be mine I hoped that by tho bier of lies bicther Helena would recover her courage and clear visionAgain I was alone But Madame do Varnlcr who had awaited tile result of Helenas Intercession now came toward me I saw with a thrill of thankfulness that tho door of tho room of tho safe was not closed You told me that It would bo for her to decide she said confidently I know that she has decided And your own decision or Docs your resolution falter You are mistaken I began to pace the floor with rapid steps advancing nearer and nearer to the room of the safe Sho has not yet decided I believe with all my heart that she will refuse She is in your oratory there Sho will gain strength from tho presence of the dead to defy you Perhaps sneered the woman She seated herself near the tablo slightly turned from the room sho had left An instant and I had gained it and drawn the bolt Another and I was on my knees my fingers tremblingly whirling about tho shining surface of tho little knob that controlled the com blnatlon COWARD I whirled it this way and that then pulled at the handle It resisted my efforts A cold per spfraton broke out on my forehead I had been a victim of my own madness thllljtime I I heard the woman without call my name In a frenzy ot rage her hands beating against tho door Once more I turned the handle It yielded to my touch Tho safe was openI no papers of any sort in the largo compartment It was empty with tho exception of a Jewel case I slipped out a drawer the only one in the safe Two packets were there I seized them greedily I was about to open them when a shadow fell across the room There was a light sttp behind me I looked up the pal pers In my hand Captain Forbes was standing by my sideHo had made his entrance through tbo open window Good evening Sir Mortlmerl I rose to my feet staring at hIm stupefiedI sorry If my abrupt and un ceremonious entrance has alarmed you ho said mockingly and regarded mo with a cold smile You have managed to escape I stammeredExactly and I hope J do not In convenience you With your penis sion slrI will withdraw the bolt This little room reminds mo too well of the one I havo Just loft It Is too cramped foray taste Ho brushed by me brusquely and drew tho bolt I thrust the papers m my breast pocket With ono motion I loBed Up safe softly and turned the knob CHAPTER XXX- Trapped Captain Forbes pasted into the larger room I followed him slowly Ah th its bettor be sighed How I am among friends Ills sardonic smile took in Madame de Varnter and myself who had not yet recovered from our astonishment Indeed it was rather embarrass ment that hold me speechless Pres entry ho would know that It was not Sir Mortimer whom he had surprised at tho safe And mowing that it was inevitable that ho mistake me for one of tho conspirators Fhst of all at Vltznau I had taken dispatches from his hand Had I indeed been really under tha Influence of an opiate I might have urged that as the reason I could have said that I was not con scions of any deception I was simply a victim of Dr Starva and Madamo do Varnler and not responsible for my acts But not only had I not taken the opiate but Madamo do Varnler knew that I had not and even had I wished to tell tho lie she would have contradicted mend now ho hud caught me red handed at the safe Ho would draw his conclusions swiftly It would bo absurd to suppose that I should know the combination of the safe merely as Madame do Varnlers guest A hostess docs not vouchsafe to her guest tho key of her strong box If I were not Sir Mortimer I must bo In league with Madame do Varnlcr and Dr Starve That was the conclusion he must ar rive at To tell him the absolute truth that by ono chanco out of ten thou sand I had stumbled on the combina tion would only deepen his conIc lion as to my guilt And Helena What would sho think Would her faith in mo bo so strong that she would believe me Had Captain Forbes not surprised roe at this moment my guessing of the rid dIe of the safe would have seemed miraculous indeed but the fact that I had the papers and could place them In her hands to bo destroyed would support my story readily enough But I daro not give to her these papers before Captain Forbes and I Madamo de Varnler It teemed to me that the kings messenger of all per COWARD eons must not know of 8lrMortraeri guilt For though tho paper the proof was In our possession the fact remained And If Captain Forboa know that I was not Sir Mortimer Brett but an impostor would ho not demand those papers And having them would ho not read them And Madamo do Varnler To what extremes would she not go In her rage Now sho believed that In some way I had been cognizant of Captain Forbos escape and land gone to the room containing the sato to give him assistance But when she know as sho must presently that i had taken tho papers from the said I could not doubt that she would not submit meekly She would have her revenge both on Helena and on myself She would insist on telling Captain Forbes of Sir Mortimers guilt He would demand from me tho pa pets and my cleverness would havo gono for nothing For the mlrd ot Forbes moved In an obstinate channel Duty to him was a soldiers Milt Im pulse In doing what ho thought his duty ho woull sacrifice all Not Hel enas tears uor my own entreaties would prevent him from hurrying back to Downing street with the proofs of Sir Mortimers guilt For some seconds after we had reached the large anteroom the three of us stood like so many wax figures Each of us had ample reason to feel ill at ease I have tbd

AVERAGE MUST BE RAISED Importance to the Farmer of Care In Selection of Seed Corn Prof r 0 Holden In his A U C of Corn Culture says that while the average yield of corn In tho United States ls less than 25 bushels per acre yet hero are hundreds and thousands of farmers who produce GO and 70 and oven SO and 00 bushels per aero I have In mind ho says scores of In stances whero of two fields Just across the road from each other or perhaps adjoining but on different farms ono yielded moro than 70 bushels and tho other loss than 20 yet tho land values wore tho same and tho labor required to produce the 20bushcl crop as great as to produce tho 70bushel crop If ono Than can produce GO and 70 bush cis per acre the other man can do It also and not only that but must do It It we are to

degree of cold This while Interesting Is not as comfort lug as It would appear to bo for tho reason that some confusion may ro stilt In deciding when corn Is thor oughly dry and further corn onco dry

bcoaiisu I dont know myself why It Is that no runny barns about thn country aro terribly hard to work In Take tho ono we were in nt thai mo ment for example Thoro was no lad der In tho wholo building When you wanted to RO up overhead you mist hind to shin up n post or swing your self from ono beam and Jot to another It takes a bettor athlete than I Otn to do that right nloug nnd stand it Think of tho waste of strength And then there was no way to get down from the big barn floor to tho basement You had to travel away ronnd out of doors no matter what the weather might be All becaiwe there wore no stairs Now when wo built unit Imrn wo manic plans for plenty of good stairs Ono pair loads from tho first floor down to tho basement Wo aro never compelled to go out of doors to get from one floor to the other Another pair of stairs leads up to the hay loft No steep hard vtalm are they either but good easy Ones that nnylx dy can get up comfortably And then tine tarn my troy and 1 were In that

no dangerof breaking Another point often overlooked In the construction of barns It conveni once In foddering I hut been In barns whore every spear ot hay had to bo dragged two or three rods over the floor before It could be put through tho chute to the cattle And ono barn I know of is no node that the farmer must haul the hey as much as 76 feet to Rot it to thu stock A terrible waste of time anti

VAUGHAN Former President of Mtisachusctts Civil Service Refohn Atioclatlon i rF 1IEHE is no reason why punietliing practical should not bo lone nt once to help the employes ou the one hand to some assured support in their old age and to enable the government on the other to offer inducements which will attract the highest grade of service Oho bugbear to begin with has been got out of our way It was long churned that selecting public servants on their realmerits and kwping them in oflice during good behavior would result in finally filling the service with a fore of em ployes too old to do the work But Uio merit system has now been in force in certain departments for a good part of a generation and recent investigations have shown that tIle superannuation is not greater than it was when the system went into effect What is more the iictunl percentage of superannuation is surprisingly small The elixir of life is not served iu the government departments and many die in office Jforcover we find from actual investigation in Washington that tho difficulty now is not that tho good employe stays too long but that ho does not stay long enough Government service has long been too precarious a career to keep tIle ablest young men away from lie inducement of private employment nUll the very improvement of material which lens resulted from the merit system has made tho number of men now taken out of the government offices by private employers greater than evor bolero Therefore having shut out tho incompetent the next step is to make tho competent satisfied to stay by some inducement short of a dangerous gen oral pension scheme Several plnns are before the public with this in view One originating with the letter carrier department provides that a percentage of the salary is to be held back and the government is itself to keep the funds and to become the insurer Another plan substitutes private life insurance or annuity companies for the governntent and makes the taking out of these policies compulsory on the employe Many variations of this scheme are possible and one of them is in actual use at this moment in Germany The subject is receiving constant attention and it is almost certain that some plan will eventually be worked out which the public will feel itself safe inirying But quite as strong an inducement as any pension system would be an increase in the certainty of tenure especially in tho higher positions It isa curious fate which has brought it to pass that the higher the positions and the greater the ability required and the greater consequently the difficulty in finding men qualified to fill them just eo much the more are these positions regarded as political prizes depending on tho endless shift ing of part majorities Once let public servants be sure of proper aries freedom of action and permanency of tenureLe of1t career and so great an inducement to good men will have been at once secured that we can afford to take timo to work out a system for protecting the comparatively few men who are really superannuated I nftSfnimsirial rare By DR SAMUEL G SMITH Department of Sociology Unlvtnlty of Michigan I Whatever leaders in industrial disturbances whether they belong to the ranks of capital or labor may thinkabout their own usefulness the American public is quite of wars nnd the rumors of wars and de sires nothing so much as that the waste and burden of unnecessary conflict shall cease In the past conflicts undoubtedly have been necessary in order that there might be a testing of strength an adjusting of interests and a developing of a deeper sense of justice anda new sense of mutual rights and duties But the time has come when all forces should be creative forces j the time hoe come to cease destruction and to commence to build upon permanent foundations the lasting habitations of industrial peace- I wish to point out a few of the essentials that make for permanent pence The most of these essentials can be grouped under the general term industrial efficiency The first basis of efficiency is found in good health Nothing is more needed among all classes than a full knowledge of the art of living It is knowledge needed by both rich and poor As domestic education is needed in order wisely to use the results t of toil so industrial education is needed in order to secure the most nCCtljtogreatest ease and skill Tho wider the knowledge any man has the wider are his sympathies and the more sensible his relations with his fellow men The man engaged in mechanical employment needs to know some thing more than merely his own specialty As it is very important that workingmen should be healthy intelli gent and welltrained so it is vitally important that the superintendents of labor should be thoroughly fitted for their tasks The mere possession of capital does not make a man fit to be a superintendent labor If tho results of clumsiness rind ignorance consisted only in wasting the capi tal of the individual that would be bad enough but the results are nu merous and are far more disastrous Industrial pence is tho condition of industrial success Industrial success of an institution is the success not alone of the organizers and owners but of every man or woman employed iuthe workAt least industrial success should be tho success of every man and woman employed

The meeting of Jesus with the Invalid at Bethesda Is ono instance of his method of reaching men He went about doing good Ono Sabbath at even when tho sun did set they brought unto him all that were diseased and them that were possessed with devils And he healed many that wero sick of divers diseases and cast out many devils That it mlghtbo fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet saying himself tool our infirmities and bare our sicknesses Matthov and Mark Imitation of Jesus In Doing Good All tho experience of modern mission arles In the east ROCS to show the wisdom ot the method employed by Jesus Christ and his apostles In giving attention to diseased bodies as a means of access to diseased souls Isabella Bird Bishop Christ tells us that those who be lievo in him shall do greater works than he and it is true that Christ In his Christianity is doing on a far tar got scale the works of Christ than it was possible for him to do in Palestine Tho kindly feeling the desire to help the Increased skill which spring up under Christianity as flowers and fruits grow in the sunshine have made Christs works through his people greater than thoso be wrought on earth They are not miracles but are better than tho power of miracles ns the prolonged sunshine Is better than a flash of lightning Blind asylums havo opened many eyes and caused people to read nnd work even without sight Hospitals hav cured and cared for multitudes ot sick and Insane it Is tho privilege of each individual Christian to know something of Christs healing power The cheer the hope the inspiration the uplift of faith in hint is a healing power over disease Prayer is said by experts to bo a real power In curing the in sane Jesus himself can still heal our diseases In his own way And yet more ho can cause them to bring spiritual health and peace It Is the privilege ot every Christian to go about doing good In the name of Jesus Jesus cures the morally sick as he did this man at Uethesda not so much by what ho does for them as what ie does In them With the command camo the Inspiration the power tQ obey Therein lies tho difference between the advice which men give and tho commands and Invitations which God gives Advice to bo good is no doubt often of value But what men need and what God gives is life new hearts strength to follow tho advice All other religions glvo advice Christ Is the way not merely an Ideal but the way to reach the Ideal not a pie lure of what wo ought to be but the way the power the life by which met picturep Showing his faith and obedience And walked Showing the completeness ot tho cure The Cure of the Soul Went with the Cure of the ladyA little later In the day Jesus finds tho man in the temple His religious nature was awakened by his cure Ho had doubt less been for a long tlmo wanting to worship God but was unable to got remember well Itf my boyhoods dayi that my first deep and earnest seeking er the religious life was during the later stages of recovery Jrom sickness The disease and danger were gone but the heart turned toward God In the temple Jesus made himself known and bade him sin no more The healing of the body is of small Account unless there is also a hcallni of the soul And this Is symbolic of his wort oven where ha did not heal Why did he not at a word heal all the sick In Palestine T I One of tho great disciplines an

the plants in many ways one is wo can move about from place to place and need much exercise to keep us healthy The plant cannot move from place to place but gets Its exercise from the winds which make it strong a Not everything that can be oaten is good for food Some things aro polspnous and would kill us If we them Others are Injurious and ateI b taken into the stomach make sick Dy this means we learn toI avoid Injurious and dangerous things Neither is one kind of food suffici ent for our use Different parts of tho body need different kinds of food Nature supplies us bountifully with u great variety so that we need never lack provided wo will do our part in assisting nature to produce It We are now taco to face with the subject of digestion and the organ concerned therein This will lead us to the blood and its circulation While studying tho circulation of the blood we shall observe its use of oxygen and this will bring us to the lungs and the process of breathing We shall in the most natural way be called upon to consider the necessity of puro air pure water and pure food of care of exercise and of temperance in all things By this method of procedure there Is no overtaxing the memory no cramming the mind with meaningless names and definitions Every item of information is furnished with its immediate need The whole subject Is so full of Interest so closely con nected with the lives of the children that each now bit of knowledge calls for more Learning under such con ditions is not a task but a pleasure The mind once started so happily will take added delight with each in crease of knowledge and will of it self seek and discover new fields for pleasure and profit The children should be encouraged fn the study of comparative physi ology They as well as the teacher will find It a fascinating study Let them bring In specimens of plants and animals and observe their structure How admirably everything is adapted to its mode of life Animals that climb have clavicles those that use their front limbs for walking or running only as the horse or cow have none Birds because of the con stant use of their wings havo a double clavicle and strong breast muscles The rabbits eyes are so situated that it can see on every side and upward without moving It thus escapes men and owls Tho slightest movement might discover its whereabouts These are single ex amples out of hundreds that might bementionedTeachers not be afraid to- go outside the leaves of the text c iJ i o1l1 book and meet their subject In its natural state Nature is a greater book than any that has yet been printed It can be read by any ono wllj ing to start nt the beginning and InIqulro patiently and lovingly Into meaning That It Is Interesting and profit yielding Is beyond question The essential thing Is not to under take tasks that are too dffflcult There Is plenty that Is within our grasp if we will but look for It Notice for example how much like ourselves are the animals about us They must cat and drink and breathe they have their sleeping and waking time they are sensitive to dlsI their family ties affections friend ships acquaintances they have their Joys and tears their friends and enemies they must suffer endure and sacrifice they teem to know that death awaits them and seek to avoid It as long as possible When we observe these and many other resemblances wo aro forced to ad mit that man Is brother to the ox This knowledge cannot fall to awaken kindly feeling tcward all living creatures Instead of tortur- Ing them tho children will bccomo the protectors of birds and animals Th y will find that thoy can derive more pleasure from studying a bird or beast than by taking Its life Moreover when they have formed the acquaintance of tho real things the descriptions apd pictures In books will have a charm never before dreamed of They will have a basis for comparing the information in tho book with their own observations and experiences and will gradually learn that what they see and know Is as valuable as what others see and know even tho others may be the writers of hooks When Interest has thus been arous ed it will bo an easy matter any time to turn the attention of the pupils upon themselves To study tho causes of diseases and how to avoid them how to care for their bodies In health and in sickness the importance of cleanliness of person and of surround ings They should find out by their own Investigations that the uso of to bacco is injurious to the body that it is a filthy habit and a profitless expense That tobacco Is particularly Injurious to boys can be proven from time records of the U S Army These show that from fifty to ninety percent of the applicants who are vie time of tho cigarette habit rail to pass the physical examination They kayo been robbed of their vigor Weak hearts low vitality shattered nerves Is the pronouncement of tholr country as reasons for rejecting their services What a comment upon the young manhood of our land What may we expect If those physical wrecks are to be the fathers of tho next generation Many of the large schools of tho cities have kept tab on the progress made by thp users and nonusers of tobacco with the results always in favor of tho latter With a little pains these records can bo obtained and placed in the hands of students This information should come before tho tobacco habit is started as it la much easier to refrain than to break oft They should in a similar manner be lead to consider tho physical men tal and moral effects of the drinking habit There is an abundance of mat erial on every hand The only thing necessary is to induce the pupils to give it a fair and impartial studyTea chers too often approach tho subject with railings and condemnations that are more likely than not to nrouHo opposition It is better to place time evidence before them and allow them to draw their own conclusions If they wish to know the teachers op inion It should be given without pre judice or rancor It Is always better to havo a person arrive at a right conclusion by his own thinking than to have It thrust upon him by another One of the greatest influences in favor of temperance today Is the at titude of the business world Hun dreds of firms today and the num ber Is constantly increasing will not employ a man who drinks It has been demonstrated over and

senator from Woodford for protecting them In this matter It Is the general belief that too fewI legal hangings havo been had In tucky in the past twenty years but If a bill that Is now before the
