been handed dragonsiantslevied a fearful tribute in human lives off of the surrounding country Often these monsters if of the dragon species were said to have many heads and these heads were frequently pictured as quickly growing back after being severed and the stories have it that many times two and three or more heads would take the place of one But the chief interest in these stories usually centers around some Persons Hercules or St George who meets the ogre in deadly combat comes away the victor and thus wins the title of Savior of the peopleThese are stories of course but save for the part that the fabulous hero plays any one of a number of them might be taken as a good representation of the scourge to which Kentucky pays such an enormous death toll today Take the figures issued by the State third of Health in Octo ber They are shocking enough to awaken the slumbering and we give them with the hope that they may cause a few at least torub their eyes Hero they are gathered from the reports of 8005 pb scunsI t Coniumptlon 13436 cases under treatment during the year ending In October and 6541 deaths Typhoid fever 1838 cases an 1818 deaths Diphtheria 1981 cases

Syphilis 16250 cases Total cases of these IMS ly preventable diseases 139717 and 13337 deaths Appalling awful Yes but Wait These are only tho cases voluntarily reported and many physicians do not report at all and there are many deaths that are not closely enough related to the practice of any particular physician to be reported so the totals are likely very much larger The eightheaded dragon Preventable Diseases No mythical story this handed down from the childhood of the race This is a true story It is modern uptodate and the only thing lacking is the hero the St George to throttle the scourge But there will bo no hero to fight the plague in single combat St Georges never tome to do for any people what they can easily and should do for themselves Modern conflicts are uotsottled doIway The fight is to be a fight of individuals it is true but the dividuals must be but units in a great army if the victory over this present day eightheaded dragon is ever to be won Anti this

this country In con nection with thorn Tariff Negotiation Referring to the negotiation of new y tariff agreements President Taft- lars l The new tariff law In Section 2 respecting the maximum and mini mum tariffs of the United States which provisions came into effect on w4IApril 1 1910 imposed upon us re of determining prior to that date whether any undue discrim Inatlon existed against the United States and its products In any coun try of the world with which we IUII tamped commercial relations- In the case of several countries In stances of apparent undue discrimina lion against American commerce wore found to exist These discriminations were removed by negotiation Prior to April 1 1910 when the maximum tariff was to come Into operation with respect to Importations from all those countries In whose favor no proclama tion applying tho minimum tariff should be Issued by the president one hundred and thirtyfour such procla mation wcr issued This series of proclamations em- I braced the entire commercial world and hence tbo minimum tariff of tho United States has been given un ver sal application thus testifying to the ti BAlisfaotory character of our trade relations with foreign countries Marked advantages tb tho com merce of the United States were obtained through these tariff settle menU The policy of broader and closer trade relations with tho Dominion of Canada which was Initiated in the ad i justment of tbo maximum and mini mum provisions of tho tariff act of August 1009 has proved mutually beneficial It Justifies further efforts for tho readjustment of the commer cial relations of tho two countries so that their commerce may follow the channels natural to contiguous coun tries and to commensurate with tho steady expansion of trade and Indus try on both aides of tho boundary line Ship Subsidy Tho president urges such action as he believes will Increase American trade abroad and says Another Instrumentality Indispen sable to tho unhamapored and natural development of American commerce Is merchant marine All maritime and commercial patlons recognize tho im portance of this factor The greatest commercial nations our competitors jealously foster their merchant ma rind Perhaps nowhere Is tho need for rapid and direct mall passenger and freight communication quite so urgent as between tho United States Ir faqd Latin America We can secure tSn no other quarter of the world such immediate benefits In friendship and commerce as would low from tho es tablishment of direct lines of com munication with tho countries of Latin America adequate to mot tho requirements of a rapidly lucr aslng appreciation of the reciprocal open denco of the countries of the w stern hemisphere upon each others products sympathies and assistance I alluded to this most Important subject In my last annual message it has often been before you and I need not recapitulate tho reasons fr its recommendation Unless prompt no tion be taken the completion of tho 1 Nnt Panama canal will flad thla the only great commercial nation unable to avail in International maritime bust ness of this great contribution to the means of the worlds commercial In tercourse Governmental Expense To no one subject does ho devote more space than to the expense of conducting the various government departments and tho urgent need for economy and In this connection he says Every effort has been made beach department chief to reduce the estimated cost of his department for the ensuing fiscal year ending Juno 30 1912 I say thla in orderthat con gress may understand that theso esti mates thus made present tho smallest sum which will maintain the departments bureaus and offices of tho gov ernment and meet Its other obliga tions under existing law and that a cut of these estimates would result in embarrassing the executive branch of the government In the performance of its duties This remark docs not apply to the river and harbor esti mates except to those for expenses of maintenance and the meeUng of obit gallons under authorized contracts nor does it apply to the public build- Ing bill nor to tho navy building program Of course ns to these con gross could withhold any part or all of the estimates for them without In terfering with tho discharge of the or- dInary obligations of these functions of Its departments bureaus and of flees Tho final estimates for the year ending June 30 1913 as they havo been sent to the treasury on November 29 of this year for the ordinary expenses of the government including thoso for public buildings rivers and harbors and tho navy building program amount to 63049401312 This Is 5296488736 less than the ap propriation for the fiscal year end- Ing June 30 1911 It Is 1688316344 less than the total estimates Includ ing supplemental estimates submitted to congress by the treasury for the year 1911 and la 567465939 less than the original estimates submitted by tho treasury for 1911 These flugrcs do not Include tho approprIations for the Panama canal the policy In respect to which ought to be and Is to spend ILl much each year as can bo economically and ef fectively expended in order to complete the canal as promptly as possl ble and therefore the ordinary mo tive for cutting down the expense of tho government does not apply to appropriations for this purpose Against the estimates of expendi turns 64049401312 we havo estimat ed receipts for next year = 680000000 making a probable surplus of ordinary receipts over ordinary expenditures of about 50000000 or taking Into ac count the estimates for tho Panama canal which aro = 5692084769 and bondaItyear of about 7000000 If congress shall conclude to fortify tho canal The Tariff The President devotes but little space to the subject of the tariff law and of It ho says The schedules of tho rates of duty In the Payne tariff act have been subjected to a great deal of criticism some of It Just more of It unfounded and to much misrepresentation Tho net was adopted In pursuance of a declaration by the party which is re fiponslble for It that customs bill should be a tariff for tho protection of homo industries tho measure of the protection to bo the difference be tween the cost of producing the Im ported article abroad and the cost of producing It at home together with such addition to that difference as might givo a reasonable profit to the homo producer The basis for tho criticism of this tariff la that In respect to a number of the schedules the declared measure was not follow ed but n higher difference retained or inserted by way of undue discrimina Lion in favor of certain Industries and manufactures Little if any of tbo criticism of the tariff has been direct ed against the protective principle above stated but the main body of tho criticism has been based on the attempt to conform to tho measure of protection was not honestly and sincerely adhered to The Tariff Board The president refers to the appoInt- ment of a board of experts to Invest gato tho cost of production of various articles Included in the schedules of the tariff and says The tariff board thus appointed and authorized has boon diligent in preparing Itself for the necessary investigations Tho hopo of those who havo advocated the use of this board for tariff purposes is that the question of tho rate of n duty Imposed shall become more of n business question and less of a political question to bo ascertained by experts of long train ing and accurate knowledge Tho halt In business and the shock to bust ness duo to tho announcement that a now tariff bill la to bo prepared and put In operation will be avoided by treating tho schedules ono by one as occasion shall nrlso for a change in tho rates of each and only after a re port upon tho schedulo by tho tariff board competent to make such report It Is not likely that the board will be nblo to make a report during the present session of congress on any of the schedules because a proper examina lion involves an enormous amount of detail and a groat deal of care but I hopo to be ablo at the opening of the new congress or at least during the session of that congressto bring to Its attention regard to those schedules In the present tariff that may prove to need amendment Our Island Possessions During the last summer at my request the secretary of war visited 4 the Philippine islands and baa described his trip in the report He found the islands In a state of tran quillity and growing prosperity duo largely to the change in the tariff laws which has opened the markets of America to the products of the Philippines and has opened tho Phil ippine markets to American manu factures The year has been one of prosper- Ity and progress in Porto Rico Panama Canal At tho instance of Colonel Goetn ale the army engineer officer In charge of tho work on tho Panama canal I have Just made a visit to the Isthmus to inspect the work done and to consult with him on the ground as to certain problem which are likely to arise in the near fu ture The progress of the work Is most satisfactory If no unexpected obstacle presents itself the canal will bo completed well within the tlmo fixed by Colonel Ooethals to wit January 1 1915 and within tho estimate of cost 375000000 Among questions arising for pres ent solution is the decision whether the canal shall be fortified I havo already stated to tho congress that I strongly favor fortification and I now reiterate this opinion and ask your consideration of tho subject in tho light of tho report already before you made by a competent board Another question which arises for consideration and possible legislation Is the question of tolls In the canal This question is necessarily affected by tho probable tonnage which will go through tho canal In determining what the tolls should be we certainly tiugbt not to insist that for a good many years to como they should amount to enough to pay the interest on the Investment of 400000000 which the United States has made in tho construction of tho canal We ought not to do this first because the benefits to be derived by the United States from this expenditure Is not to bo measured solely by a return upon the In vestment If It were then the con strucUon might well havo been left to private enterprise My own Impression Js that tho tolls ought not to exceed U per net ton and I should recommend that within certain limits the president be authorized to fix the tolls of the canal and adjust them to what seems to be commercial necessity I cannot close this reference to the canal without suggesting as a wise amendment to the interstate commerce law a provision prohibiting Interstate commerce railroads from owning or controlling ships engaged In the trade through tho Panama canal I believe such a provision may be needed to save to the people of the United States the benefits of tho competition In trade between the eastern and western seaboards which this canal was constructed secure Department of Justice Discussing the affairs of the department of Justice the president says 1 Invite especial attention to the prosecutions under the federal law of the socalled bucket shops and of those schemes to defraud in which the use of tho mall Is an essential part of the fraudulent conspiracy prosecutions which have saved Ig norant and weak members of tho pub lie and are saving them hundreds of millions of dollars The violations of the antitrust law present perhaps the most important litigation before the department and the number of cases filed shows the activity of tho government in enforcing that statute In a special message last year I brought to tho attention of congress the propriety and wisdom of enacting a general law providing for the in corporation of Industrial and other companies engaged In interstate com merce and I renew my recommendation In that behalf The crying need In tho States of cheapening the cost of UtiIgation by simplifying Judicial ure and expediting final Judgment is pointed out and action looking to cor rection of these evils is urged Tho president recommends an In crease In tho salaries of federal Judges Postal Savings Banks At Its last session congress mado provision for the establishment of savings banks by the postofflco de partment of this government by which under general control of trustees con stating of the postmaster general the secretary of the treasury and tho at torney general the system tould be begun In a few cities and towns and enlarged to cover within Its operations as many cities and towns and as large a part of the country as seemed wise Tho initiation and establishment of such a system has required a great deal of study on the part of the experts in the postofflce and treas ury departments but a system has now bean devised which is believed to be more economical and simpler in Its operation than any similar system abroad Arrangements havo been perfected so that savings banks will bo opened in some cities and towns on the 1st of January and there will be a gradual extension of the benefits of the plan to tho rest of the country- It Is gratifying says the president that tho reduction In the postal deficit has been accomplished without any curtailment of postal facilities On tho contrary the service has been greatly extended during the year In all its branches SecondClass Mall In my last annual message I in vited the attention of congress to tho Inadequacy of tho postal rate Imposed upon secondclass mall matter in so far as that includes magazines and bowed by figures prepared by experts of the postofflco department that the government was rendering a service to the magazines costing many millions In excess of the compensation paid An answer was attempted to this by the representatives of tho magazines and a reply was filed to this answer by the postofflco depart float The utter inadequacy of the answer considered In the light of the reply of the postomco department I think must must appeal to any fair minded person Whether the answer was all that could be said in behalf of the magazines Is another question I agree that the question Is one of fact but I Insist that If the fact is as tho experts of the postofflce department show that we are furnishing to the owners of magazines a service worth millions more than they pay for it then Justice requires that the rate should bo increased The Increase In tho receipts of the department result ing from this change may be devoted to increasing the usefulness of the department in establishing a parcols post and In reducing tho cost of first class postage to ono cent It has been said by the postmaster general that o fair adjustment might be made under which the advertising part of tho magazine should bo charged for at a different and higher rate from that of the reading matter This would re here many useful magazines that areI not circulated at a profit and would not shut them out from the use of the Sails by a prohibitory rate With respect to the parcels post I respectfully recommend Its adoption on all rural delivery routes and that 11 pounds the International limit bo made tho limit of carriage in such postN Abolish Navy Yards The president calls attention to cer tain reforms urged by tho secretary of tho navy which he recommends for adoption and continues Tho estimates of tho navy depart ment are 5000000 less than the ap propriation for the same purpose last year and included in this Is the build ing program of tho same amount as that submitted for your consideration last year It is merely carrying out the plan of building two battleships a year with a few needed auxiliary vessels I earnestly hope that this pro gram will be adopted The secretary of the navy has given personal examination to every navy yard and has studied the uses of the navy yards with reference to the necessities of our fleet With a fleet considerably less than half the size of that of the British navy wo have shipyards more than double the dumber and there are several of these shipyards expensively equipped with modern machinery which after Inves tigation tho secretary of the navy believes to bo entirely useless for naval purposes He asks authority to aban don certain of thorn and to move their machinery to other places where it can be made of use The complete success of our coun try in arctic exploration should not remain unnoticed The unparalleled achievement of Peary In reaching tho north pole April 6 1909 approved by critical examination of tho most ex pert scientists has added to the die tinction of our navy to which he belongs and reflects credit upon his country I recommend fitting recognl ton by congress of the great achIeve- ment of Robert Edwin Peary Conservation The subject of the conservation of the public domain has commanded the attention of the people within tho last two or three years There is no need for radical reform in the methods of disposing of what aro really agricultural lands The present laws havo worked well Tho enlarged homestead law has encour aged the successful farming of lands in the seml arid regions Nothing can be moro important in tho matter of conservation than the treatment of our forest lands It was probably tho ruthless destruction of forests in tho older states that first called attention to tho necessity for a halt In the waste of our resources In the present forest reserves there are lands which are not properly for est and which ought to be subject to homestead entry This has caused somo local irritation Wo are carefully eliminating such lands from for est reserves or where their elimina tion is not practical listing them for entry under tho forest homestead act Congress ought to trust the execu tive to uso tho power of reservation only with respect to land most valu able for forest purposes During the present administration 62250000 acres of land largely non tlmbered have been excluded from forest reo servos and 3600000 acres of land principally valued for forest purposes have been included in forest reserves making n reduction In forest reserves of nonUmbered land amounting to 2750000 acresCoal Lands The next subject and one most im portant for your consideration is the disposition of the coal lands in the United States and Alaska At tho bo ginning of this administration there wore withdrawn from entry for purposes of classification 17867000 acres Since that time there havo been with drawn by my order from entry for classification 78977745 acres making a total withdrawal of 96844745 acres Meantime of tho acres thus with drawn 1061889 havo been classified and found not to contain coal and havo been restored to agricultural en try and 4726031 acres have been classified as coal lands while 7993239 acres remain withdrawn from entry and await classification In addition 337000 ncrtis have been classified as coal lands without prior withdrawal thus increasing the classified coal lands to 10429372 acres Under tho laws providing for the disposal of coal lands in the United States tho minimum price at which au r land are permitted to bo sold Is 10 an acre but the secretary of the in tenor has the power to fix a maximum price and to sell at that prlco As onethird of all the coal supply Is held by the government it seems wise that it should retain such con trol over the mining and the salo as the of lessor to lessee fur nishesTho secretary of the interior thinks there aro difficulties in the way of leasing public coal lands which objections he has set forth In his report the force of which I freely con cede I entirely approve his stating at length In his report of the objec Uons in order that the whole subject may bo presented to congress but after a full consideration for the rea sons I havo given above r favor a leasing system and recommend it Water Power Sites Prior to March 4 1909 there had been on tho recommendation of the reclamation service withdrawn from agricultural entry becauso they were regarded as useful for power sites which ought not to bo disposed of as agricultural lands tracts amounting to about 4000000 acres The with drawals were hastily made and Included a groat deal of land that was not useful for power sites They were Intended to Include tho power sites on 29 rivers in 9 states Since that time 3475442 acres have been re stored for settlement of the original 4000000 because they do not con Lain power sites and meantime new withdrawals have been made whjch with other restorations based upon field examination result in withdrawals at present effective of 1218356 acres on vacant public land and 202 197 acres on entered public land or a total of 1420553 acres These with drawals made from time to time cover all the power sites included in the first withdrawals and many more on 151 rivers and in 12 states The dis position of these power sites involves one of the most difficult questions pre sented in carrying out practical con servation The subject Is one that calls for new legislation It has been thought that there was danger of combination to obtain possession of all tho power sites and to unite them under one control Whatever the evidence of this or lack of it at present we have had enough experience to know that combination would be profitable and the control of a great number of pow cr at will within certain sections However this may be it is the plain duty of the government to see to it that in the utilization and devel opment of all this Immense amount of water power conditions shall be imposed that will prevent extortion ate charges which are the usual ac companiment of monopoly The question of conservation is not a partisan one and I sincerely hope that even In the short time of the present session consideration may be given to those questions which have now been much discussed and that action may be taken upon them Alaska With reference to the government of Alaska I have nothing to add to the recommendations 1 mado in my last message on the subject I am convinced that the migratory charac ter of the population its unequal distribution and its smallness of num ber which the new census shows to be about 60000 in relation to tho enormous expanse of the territory make it altogether impracticable to give to those people who are in Alaska today and may not bo there a year hence the power to elect a leg islature to govern an immenso territory to which they have relation so little permanentPensions The uniform policy of the government in tho matter of granting pen sions to those gallant iBiid devoted men who fought to save tho life of the nation In the perilous days of the great civil war has always been of the most liberal character Those men ore now rapidly passing away The best obtainable official statistics show that they are dying at the rate of something over three thousand a month and in view of their advanc- Ing years this rate must Inevitably in proportion rapidly increase To the man who risked everything on the field of battle to savo the nation in the lour of its direst need we owe a debt which has not been and should not bo computed in a begrudging or parsimonious spirit Bureau of Corporations Referring to the report of the com missioner of corporations the presi dent says The commissioner finds a condi Lion in the ownership of tho standing Umber of the United States other than the government Umber that calls for serious attention The direct in vestigation made by the commissioner covered an area which contains 80 per cent of tho privatolyoWned Um ber of the country Ills report shows that one half of tho Umber in this area is owned by 200 Individuals and corporation that 14 per cent Is owned by these corporations and that there is very extensive interownership of stock as well as other circumstanced all pointing to friendly relations among thoso who own a majority of this Um ber a relationship which might lead to a combination for the maintenance of a price that would bo very dotrl mental to the public interest and would create tho necessity of remov ing all tariff obstacles to the free Importations of lumber from other coun tries Bureau of Labor The commissioner of labor has been actively engaged in composing the dif ferences between employers and em ployees engaged in Interstate trans + 4 t portatton under the Erdran wft joint ly with the chairman of the Interstate commerce commission- I cannot speak In too high terms of the success of the two officers In con dilation and settlement of controver ales which but for their interposition would have resulted disastrously to mil interestsCivil Service Commission The civil service commission has continued its useful duties during the year The necessity for the maInte- nanCe of the provisions of tho civil service law was never greater than today Omcers responsible for tho pol icy of tho administration and their Immediate personal assistants or depu ties should not be Included within tho classified service but in my Judg ment public opinion has advanced to the point where it would support a bill providing a secure tenure during em clency for all purely administrative officials I entertain tho profound conviction that It would greatly aid thoIcause of efficient and economical ernment and of better politics if gross could enact a bill providing conIthe executive shall have the to include in the classified service local offices under the treasury department the department of justice tboctJpartmentmerce and labor appointments to l which now require the confirmation of tho senate and that upon such classification the advice and consent of the senate shall cease to be re- quIred In such appointments By their certainty of tenure dependent on good service and by their freedom from the necessity for political activity these local officers would be In duced to become more efficient public servantsI eral government has been so rapld and so great that tho time has como to check the expansion of government activities in new directions until wo have tested the economy and efficiency I with which the government of today is J being carried on The responsibility rests upon the head of the administra Lion He is held accountable by the t public and properly so Respite tho unselfish and patriotic efforts of tho r heads of departments and others charged with responsibility of govern ment there has grown up in this coun try u conviction that the expenses of government aro too great The fun IIdamental reason for the existence un detected of waste duplication and bad management is the lack of prompt accurate Information I have requested the head of each department to appoint committees on economy and efficiency in order to secure full cooperation In the movement by the employees of the government themselvesI the continuance of the ap propriation of 100000 requested for the fiscal year 1912 My experience leads me to believe that while government methods are much criticized thovbad results If we do have bad resultsare not due to alack of zeal or willingness on the part of the civil servants Interstate Commerce There has not been time to test the benefit and utility of the amendments to the Interstate commerce law con tamped In the act approved June 18 1910 The law as enacted did not con tain all the features which I recom mended It did not specifically denounce as unlawful the purchase byjof two and 1roadsonce of the Interstate Commerce commission tho power of corporations engaged In operating interstate railroads to issue new stock and bonds nor did it authorize the making of temporary agreements between railroads limited to 30 days fixing the same rates for traffic between the same places I do not press the consideration oi any of these objects upon congress at this session The interstate commerce oommls slon has recommended appropriations for the purpose of enabling it to entet upon a valuation of all railroads This has always been within tho jurlsdlcItlon of the commission but tho requi site funds have been wantfpg Stalls tics to the value of each railroad would bo valuable for many purposes espe dally If wo ultimately enact any lim itations upon the power of tho inter state railroads to issue stocks and bonds as I hope we may For tho protection of our own people and the preservation of our credit In foreign trade I urge upon congress the immediate enactment of it a law under which one who In good faith advances money or credit upon a bill of lading issued by a common carrier upon au Interstate or foreign shipment can hold the carrier liable for the raluo of tho roods described In the bill at the valuation specified in the bill at least to tho extent of thevadvances made in reliance upon It I further recommend that a punIsh- ment of fine and Imprisonment be1 Im posed upon railroad agents and shippers for fraud or misrepresentation in connection with the Issue of bills of lading Issued upon interstate and forIelgn shipments Except as above I do not recom mend any amendment to tho interstate commerce law as It stands I do not now recommend any amendment tc the antitrust law In other words it seeing to mo that the existing legisla tion with reference to tho regulation of corporations Sand the restraint of their business has reached a point where we can stop for a while and wit ness tho effect of the vigorous execu tion of the laws of tho statute books in restraining tho abuse which certainly did exist

friends of Ttexhune are dUcuailng plans to find him a wife within the prescribed time It ittms that Lady Vincent Is one of seven persons named Agatha all close girlhood thorns She decides to Invite two of them ru the castle and have Archie there as one of the guests Agatha Sixth strikes Archie as a handpalntcd beauty Agatha IFTrnt Is a breezy American girl Lady Vincent tells her husband that Agatha sixth already cares for Archie He gains from Agatha Sixth the admission that aka core for him but will require a f oontlia time fully to make up her mind Acatha First neglected by Terhune re

Terhune continues his at trctlona to Agatha Sixth Then suddenly AgathaFlntcot fickleness The last evening of the time piloted in which to become engaged TTTTS CHAPTER IXContinued The conclusion was obvious and we tell away from our point of vantago at the door and looked at each other with scared and troubled faces Our attempts to make a match for Agatha Sixth and win Terhune a fortune were certainly going wrong with a ven gem But the worse was not yet Befitts we had time to more than bre pjw1 toes compllcaUon presented tho ahapo of the sudden appearance of- Agatha Sixth upon the scene We met her at the foot of the stairs JUSt as we were going up wrapper clad and with long black braids bang tag over her shoulders I felt myself grown quite catlike In regard to see Ins In the dark and had perceived who she was and tho vital necessity of keeping our discovery a secret from i her before my wife had time to more than gasp a greeting Is that you Agatha Lawrenco InquiredYes is ItT

hoarse with whispering one of Vjms got nhnt In tho drawing room some way and bos knocked over a vase I Did ho also light the lampr de manded Miss Lawrence suspiciously as she came and stood beside us And I cursed myself for a blunderer ns eho said it Then Dearest had a go at the situation and I felt that if thla attempt failed we could do nothing more to save the girl from the certain misery she seemed so eager to bring upon herself r lit the lamp darling sho said standing directly In front of the door RO that Agatha Sixths view was cut air to see if there was much damage done We forgot to turn it out but Vllfrcd will do It now if youll come along upstairs with mo and not both er But the girl was not to be turned from her purpose so easily Some In otinct seemed to tell her that what lay behind those closed doors con cerned her nearly Let mo look Dearest she said using my name for my wifo for the flat time as shes usually a cold lit tie thing and Dearest its If convinced that It was for the best after all stepped aside It didnt take long the delivery of tOO blow and Agatha Sixth took it like a martyr One glimpse was enough Then sbo turned and silently led the way to the stairs At the door of our guests room nhich wo passed before reaching oar own suite my wife stopped Good night Wllfredsho saidAgatha dear to the girl and taking beg band you mukt let mo spend thereat of the night with you And as I stumbled on to my own room I couldnt Tielp thinking that if anything In the world could comfort her If consola tion won to be found Agatha Sixth would find It in those dear nrmsI PART THREE CHAPTER X The following morning dawned up on She Clstlo WyckhofT house part cJeir and biliay and typically Junc t Par all the world u if the day 3t her aided was not a critical one for one of its members and an axious one for his two friends Dearest and myself who had Invited Terhune to the castle solely to further his interests and welfare At least that was the way I felt about It Dearest may have had some other object in view I hadnt seen her since last night by the way and I own I felt alarmed for the success of our plans when I thought of tho events of that evening and the shocking dis closure of Terhunes Inconstancy to the very one of all others from whom it should have been hidden Poor old Arch I I said to myself as I sat down at the breakfast table and began to read tho vapor until tho others should Join me Im afraid bes gone nnd done It now lies made a bally mess of it this time as sure as eggs I And yet even in spite of pearances secretly I hoped if AgnthaI Sixth were really as daffy about him as my wIfe had seemed to think Out the entrance of both the young persons my thoughts had just named Interrupted my meditations and I roses they seated themselves and with an amazing calm began a common place little chatter about unimportant things Just as if nothing had happened at all Nor did the appearance of Agatha First and Terhune onq after the other at all disturb their beautiful serenityStrange to say Terhune gave no evidence of any Inward disquiet or cause for alarm lIe showed not the faintest symptoms of a guilty con science but laughed and chatted with his customary sociability If it had not been for his persistent avoidance of conversation with Agatha First I should have been convinced in spite of the evidence of my own eyes that he was not the traitor and double dealer we had every reason td think film but an upright and Innocent gen tleman deeply in love with Agatha Sixth and Agatha Sixth only his straying toward Agatha First having been but a temporary swerving from the path of loyalty born only of his conceit and thirst for flattery Im bound to concede however that ho made no sort of headway with Miss Lawrence who met his advances with unfailing courtesy it is true but a pillar of ice could scarcely havo been more unyielding and the look on her little white pansy face was rather piti fully hard Dearest was only a little more cordial herself and I pitied the poor old boy as I saw an expression that I could almost have sworn was hurt and bewildered growing upon his face Hut I didnt get a chance to observe them much longer than a first glance before I plunged myself Into the duty of entertaining Agatha First which naturally devolved upon me The poor girl wasnt game for much con versation though I could see that And by Jove If Agatha Sixth looked badly Agatha First looked worse Never saw such a hopeless wretched looking young woman in my life If It hadnt been for the presence of the footman who was In the room I believe she would have given way to What Do You Want to Know Forr tears at any moment She certainly looked as if shed cried all night as It was and there was hardly a trace of her splendid color loft Gads If ever a girl had the appear ance of having been run through a wringer she had I began to feel more sorry for her than I did for Agatha Sixth oven though her con duct had been more open to criticism After all I soliloquized tho poor thing had as much right to be In love with Terbuno as Agatha Sixth did and perhaps it wasnt quite fair of Dearest to side so entirely with the latter Of course it was true as Dear est had explained to me often enough that Agatha Sixth had cared for him months before Agatha First had ever thought of such a thing and I suppose had therefore a sort of first claim up on him And of course the point that she should have seen how things were from tho beginning and not al lowed herself to get Interested was good though I didnt argue with them that sho had deliberately tried to alienate Terhuno from his acknowl edged preference for Agatha Sixth The girl had never seemed to me to be aware of such a state of things in regard to Terhune nnd Miss Lawrence and had always gone about her busi ness with tho air of a sleepwalker or as if her mind wore on other things However whether that was true or not I must confess I mado rather a mess of my efforts to converse with her and frankly abandoned thorn for an attempt to get her to eat but failed also In that She steadfast refused everything oven though Dear est who cant bear anyone to go hun gry however displeased she may be with them urged her with The utmost cordiality Dearest makes the pret tiest hostess Imaginable and Its only recently that Ive been halt able to tit for looking at her Today la bart er of Its Importance I Bupiose sin had put on my favorite white linen tress with a lot of lace or crochet or something of that sort lot in and I tejl you sho looked wonderful good Gad Its nice to have a wife But as I was saying we were all of us under a rather unusual strain of excitement I could see as we left the breakfast table that old Arch had begun to have misgivings as to the success of his suit and was looking very serious as tho realization began to dawn upon him that between break fast and one oclock he would have to put the decisive question When he had confided to me last evening that he intended to ask Agatha Sixth today ho had also told me that ho meant to watt until the last possible minute to try his fate In order to humor Agatha Sixths coquettish desire to keep him waiting for his answer But he spoke then with a good deal of confidence as to tho favorable nature of that answer while now doubt and anxiety seemed to bo his only allies I was sorry for him though I couldnt help wondering if his flirtation nnd disloyal conduct in regard to Agatha First did not mako his refusal a Just punishment and I surmised that he had begun to wonder himself If the crowning offense of last night had not become known In any event trou bled was no word for his jcpresslon as we separated in the breakfast room each to his own pursuits How over deserved his refusal might be I couldnt help wishing that such a calamity would not overtake him I think tho world of tho old boy and I want to see him ns happily married as I amthough of course thats not literally possible ns theres only one Dearest in the world For myself I followed my wife out upon the veranda and began to tell her my apprehensions for my friend Look here Agatha I said I want to know what Torbunos prospects are What chance has ho with Agatha Sixth now Any at a111 As I havo said I bad not yet had an opportunity of speaking privately with her and she bad been with Agatha Sixth all night and was of course In her confidence I expected ti hear how matters stood with Miss Lawrence that moment and with the tallest detail I was therefore as disagreeably surprised as Ive over been in my life by Jove when my darling ejred no coldly and impersonally and remarks What do you want to know for Why because Im Interested in Terhuno I cried a little Injured I want him to succeed In inheriting his aunts property of course I What elsot What else Indeed retorted my wife scornfully If you dont know what else emphasizing tho word know I cant waste any more time talking to you Then as she caught my look of utter astonishment 0 you men You moat she added shaking her head at me youre all alike after all But I thought better of you Wilfred I Thought better of me But what about I queried have you forgotton she asked me without answering my question Have ycu forgotte last summer not quite a year ago when you and Mr Torhuno first came through the fields of Wye and stayed at Castle Wyck holt with us aUmy aunt Mrs Ar mistead and the six other Agathas Rather not I exclaimed But whats that got to do with the present case Whnt do you moan dearT Dont you remember she persisted still Ignoring my question her voice thrilling with tears how you yourself behaved at that time Have you forgotten why It WAS that you wanted to marry me Because I loved you I burst out as vehemently as if it were indeed that wonderful selfsamo moment when I first had asked her What cleat TO DE CONTINUED Grey and Gray What is the difference if any bo tween grey nnd gray aside ron the matter of spelling The editor of the Oxford DIctlonarj some years ago made extended Inquiry as to usage and found that opinions in London varied Replies to his ques tions showed that in Great Britain the form grey is the more frequent In uc despite the authority of Dr Johnson and later lexicographers who give the preference to gray Many correspondents said that they used the two forms with a difference o meaning or application the distinc lion most generally recognized being that grey donates a more delicate or lighter tint than gray Others con sidered tho difference to bo that gray Is a warmer color or that It has a mixture of red or brown Another group hold that grey has more Of sentiment gray more of color whlcij may mean that grey is a suggestion rather than a positive outline Saying Grace

Providence of God For If Jesus did not die he could not bo raised from the dead Moreover If the proof that Jesus really died came from his friends peoplo would question whether they did not In some

and people are weary sick and dying they will still repeat those words But where are Davids palaces fortresses soldiers cattle and his crown and sceptre Gono like tho morning dew It is a strange thought that a psalm will outlast an army or a fortress but It Is oven so Davids real life work was his psalm writing his mere time Ills work will live forever because ho was a thoughtmaker- Tho soul or excellence of things a I always a thought What are flowers areacost a I thousand dollars apiece They are Just mud and dirt with a thought of God Infused Into them I Thoughts condition the use of many things especially those ot the great oat value Machinery does not operate Itself Time violin does not make music by Itself You think that a man Is rich If ho can purchase a five thou sand dollar automobile nut I remind you that there are scores of people in graveyards lying under tombstone because they owned sueh automobiles What Is a five thousand dollar Auto chanfI chauffeurs who can think good thoughts and form good Judgment III emergencies For an enjoyable ride you must have good horsepower nail you must have good brain power But why talk BO much of timings The life of man consists niece In thoughts than in things Wo are not merely hands eyea ears and stomachs Wo are far more truly minds affections oonscencs and Imagination A mans happiness depends mainly on his thoughts not on his bread anti honey nor his doormat and lightning rod Not oven a klifgdom Insures happiness Tho Queen of Spain on hor- I wedding day stood up in tho cathedral wearing a crown of gold and u gown of white satin Whun tho wed ding was over and sho had arrived fit i her future home in the unlace she burst into weeping What was her burden Her beautiful whtto gown was splashed with blood She wept because of her fears Always since that date tho boatitlful palace has been peopled with her fears tears of assassination for her husband her children and herself Men with bad consciences with tearful thoughts or sad thoughts cannot be happy though they live like Nero In golden houses Leaden thoughts make laadei houses Golden thoughts change mud houses Into gold Thoughts have a great deal to do with our progress Men tact from motives and they grow like that of which they think Money can build college walls and laboratories It can provide splendid scholarships for young men But It requires visions and plans and Ideals to cause men to make use of college and lIbrury and laboratory The tragedy cf many a rich mans life Is that his son refuses the opportunities of education which his father Is lavishing upon him You can drive a horbO to water but you cannot make him drink You can send a boy to college but you cannot make him think No college ever produced a man or a scholar Such aro Invariably the product of a Thought or an Ideal which meets tho youth upon some hillside or in some valley or at some daydawn or In tho tragedy of some night To become a scholar the youth must bo kicked In the stomach like Newton To become a man tho boy must meet with some splendid vision like the Apostle Paul on his way to Damascus I daro even to urge the supreme valuo of religious thoughts Many pea pie who recognize the worth of tech nical knowledge deny tho value of re ligion Religious thoughts have pro vided many of the most beautiful things In tho world For the works that men perform are but the ex pression of themselves Men who are thinking about dogs build kennels Men who are thinking about God build cathedrals The mOlt beautiful rugs In the world are prayer rugs Tho thoughts of Raphael concerning God turned Into the SUtlno Madonna The thoughts of Michael Angelo concern ing God turned into tho Church tt St Peters The expression of roll gious thoughts has given to the world Its most noblo statues paint ings music and architecture Religious thoughts condition the usefulness and value of things If ua wo have already shown the working of machinery depends upon the clear thinking and good Judgment of men then It must bo evident that religion has an important relation to machin ery The clear thoughts of your chauffeur depend upon his temperance I would say his total abstinence But total abstlnonco depends generally upon religious convictions Many a careless rich man who has no concep tlon of spiritual realities Is under the most vital obligation to the churches and religion ills automobile spins safely along the highway over bridges and chasms and by the edge of abysses under the direction of the chauffeur Hut the chauffeur Is the good man that he Is because of the Influence of some little church or of some godly mother The thought less rich man does not know It but tho hand of Christ Is upon the steer Ing wheel of his car lie does not thank God for It but It Is to the Influence of religion that ho owes his lifeReligious thoughts help men In tho groat essential experiences and crises of life In their personal decisions and choices and In their sorrows and tragedies It Is said that when Corn lius Vanderbilt was dying he request od his trained nurse to sing for him The hymn that he demanded was Come yo sinners poor and needy I Religion alone Is able to satisfy tho most vital necessity of the soul of mantho demand of his spiritual nature Alter tho wheat fields ami tho corn fields have done their beet for a man ho Is still hungry After the sun has boon shining In his strength and beauty from the bluo crystal line firmament the soul of a man still sends forth from the darkness Its cry for light What am I whence did I come and whither shall I go It a nian die shall ho live again Suppose that you surround a man with all the material comforts of a golden ago will ho then be happy Not while ho lacks tho answer to time supreme questions Is thoro any balm for a wounded and stinging conscience Is there any forgiveness for a sinful soul Is thoro any loving pity in the Cod who creates tho oak and the violet and than crushes them with the redhot thunderbolt It Is narrated of a traveller In the desert who had been starving for days that he saw a bag that lay by the fountain In the green grass of an oasis Ho hurried to It In the hope that It contained the bread which yould savo his life But he flung It away from him with the bitter cry Nothing but pearls no thing but pearls Without religion tho heart of man In tho midst of all tho wealth of the world would ntlll send forth Its sad and bitter cry I want to suggest thoughtmaking t young people as a bonanza opportun ity for usefulness If sonic young man or woman should compose a hymn or a poem of worth ho might accomplish more In R few hours than tho life work of a Rockefeller with all his mllllonn Many yonr ago n young man who subsequently bcam a member or the church of which I am now pastor wrote a few verses Ho has long since died and been burled but tho hymn is still doing his lifework for him with increasing I influence and power It is the hymn which begins with the words i My country tis of then But It will bo replied that there Is poor encouragement in my suggestion because there are so few peo ple who possess the genius to write a hymn or a poem that will live 1 spoko as I did to most of you for tho purpose of piquing you In order to make you ready to consider thu great truth that thoughtmaking is peculiarly time child of personal self sacrifice It Is not tho grout lloolaIand hymnwriters Important and use fun as they are who have most powerX fully Influenced the thoughts and feelings of men And I would especially I Insist that tho great thought makers ot humanity have not born time great philosopher nor the great i war leaders nor tho great financiers and empire bulldeta of the world Such men have accomplUhrd their great works and then have com manded the heralds to sound forth their praises But the people have remained essentially unmoved by tho story of selfish greatness Or as tho poet Tennyson hOB expressed it The splendor falls on castle walls And snowy summits old In story Time long light shakes across tho lakes And time wild cataract leaps In glory Dlow bugle blow sot the wild echoes flying Blow bugle answer echoes dying dying dying But If I wished to stir up thoughts and sentiments within you I would toll you of the men and women who have mado great sacrifices for human ity I would speak of Lincoln and Washington of Allonlram Judson and Savonarola and Joan of Arc I could stir up your feelings by time simple story of the trained nurse who gave up her life In tho performance of her duty In tho contagious ward of a w city hospital Or I could a factory girl In old aa I never pass by time old cbusettaIyard In which she Is burled seeing great splendid visions more beautiful and wonderful than angels t 1thOleBclfiacrlflco of a young girl of nineteen years who lost her life In the struggle to keep four little brothers and sisters together In time tld home after tho death of the father and mother Time heroes and heroines of selfsacrlflolng lovo are the great thoughtmakers of all times In the worlds history Or OB Tennyson said O love they die In yon rich sky They faint on hill or Maid or river Our echoes roll from soul to soul And grow forever and forever Blow bugle blow sot Ule wild echoes Iflyinganswer echoes answer dying dying dying There is no one hUN who cannot sacrifice for tho sake or humanity Therefore there Is no one huro who cannot enter Into the splendid circle of the thoughtmakers LINCOLN INSTITUT- Ed James Bond D D class of 92 of Konsco Kentucky who Is financial agent
