Protection When the professional octopus hunters inveigh against the numer ous trusts they never fall to mention tne ice trust with others and pro ceed to exclaim that the cure for gen eral evil is free trade or approximate free trade But the average morta cannot understand what the tariff has to do with the ice business During the winter just ended na ture was most generous in providing Ice and there was nothing standing in the way of those who wanted any considerable quantity of ice from put ting it away for summer use So for as we know there is no tariff on ice and we do not believe it would pay to import ice from the North Pole or another y point where it is to be had for the cutting If the tariff duty should be taken off of cheese for instance we do not think It would make an difference in the price of ice and therefore it ought to be recognized by those who revel in a long string of trusts in pictures and in words that the ice trust might be well eliminat ed as an object lesson when the tarifi in connection with trusts is being consideredThen the coal trust There is no duty on coal now and the impor tations of coal amounts to nothing Yet the coal trust is always held u as a reason why the Protective Tar ifl must go Trusts are not bred by protectionin fact they are bred be cause of the new economic methods conducting business Several of th trusts have come to grief in recent years The problem of combinations of capital operated to the disadvan tage of the consumers is to settle itself by the lapse of time and by the enforcement of laws applied to such corporations as are operated in viola tion of the law There are undoubt edly many trusts socalled which do work a hardship to the consumers at times but some of them are of a character not to be affected by either FreeTrade or protection Thus any consideration ofsuch business combi nations should be along lines of com mon sense General howls against trusts prove nothing For instance the cries against the ice coal and meat trusts are absurd when it is charged that they are created by the policy of pro tection They would no doubt exist under FreeTrade just as well as theyI do now Then there is the milk trust in New YOlk The tariff has nothing to do with It Those who Inveigh agalnst trusts ought to be specific especially when they seek to con nect combinations of capital with the Tariff If the evil is to be fought it must be along intelligent fnesfOf course we realize that many folks are deluded into believing that the ice milk coal and beef trusts are made possible through the policy of Protection but anybody who stops long enough to think can soon dlsIcover that such combinations of cap ital would 02 possible under any national system Walks Without Crutch- esII much

rhyme The reason for the question able literary popularity of this trait is that the trait exists today as it existed a hundred ytars ago However averse a woman may be to keeping a secret in a general way she is perfectly able to keep her age a secret the minute she has graduated from her teens When men have written on the subject they have come to the conclusion that womans vanity stood responsible for her unwillingness to disclose the number of her years This explanation has become there forethe accepted solution of the ques tion Weve taken it to be true as we take it to be true that two and two equal four rather than seventeen But it appears to me weve been at faultThe cause lies deeper down than the shallow surface soil of vanity It may be found 1 think in lea explored and less exploited ground- Is not womans secretiveness re garding her age one of the variou- manifestations ot her great ambition and desire in lifeto remain a charm ing mystery in the eyes of man There is no doubt that such is her ambition There is no doubt either that this ambition is based on reason able grounds Familiarity will breed contempt No saying was ever more faultlessly correct You cant eat breakfast and dinner day after day with an ethereal poet without losing faith eventfully In his ethereality You cant see a celebrity at close range for any lengt of time without beginning to date his claims to fame This greatthough deplorable truth the average woman thoroughly nn ierstands Andas she understands it she tcts on it wherever it is possible to net Wishing to retain mans admira tion she turns herself by careful sys tematic work into something as nearly like the Sphinx as flesh and blood and impulse will allow Byclever little maneuvers tiny tricks whose purport man does not realize although he may laugh stu pidly at their visible results she manage to become quite early in life Miss or Mistress Mystery Therein she shows that wisdom is feminine as much as anything and thereby she achieves her purpose One of these tricks and not the least effective is the obliteration of I 1 ASTRA For Infants and Children The Kind Yo Always oghi Bears theI y Signature- S In- Use Fir

PIRATES DAUGHTER lBy FRANK R STOCKTON Copyright livi br U Appleton Co Now York CHAPTER V- Al UX81IIj T I1tRAND OH what seemed a very long time to Kate Bon net Dlekory Charter paddled bravely through the darkness Sho was relieved of the terror and the uncertainty which had fallen upon her during the past few hours and she was grateful to the brave young fellow who had delivered her from the danger of sailing out upon the sea with a crew of wicked scoundrels who were about to steal her fathers ship and her heart should have beaten high with gratitude and joy but it did not She was very cold and she knew not whither young Dickory was taking her She did not believe that in all that darkness he could possibly know where ho was going at any moment that dreadful ship might loom up before them and lights might be flashed down upon them But all of a sudden the canoe scraped grounded and stopped What is that she cried It is our beach said Dickory and almost at that moment there came a call from the darkness beyond Dickory cried a womans voices that you It is my mother said the boy sho has heard the scraping of my keelThen he shouted back It is Dick ory please show me a light mother Jumping out Dickory pulled the canoe high up the shelving shore and then he helped Kate to get out It was not an easy job for she could see nothing and floundered terribly but he seemed to like it and half led half carried her over a considerable space of uneven ground until he came to the door of a small house where stood an elderly woman with a lan ternDickory Dickory shouted the woman what is that you are bring ing home Is it a great flsh It is a young woman said the boy but she Is as wet as a fish Woman cried Dame Charter What mean you Dickory is she deadNot dead Mother Charter said Kate who now stood unassisted in the light of the lantern but in woe ful case and more like to startle you than if I wore the biggest fish I am Mistress Kate Bonnet just out of the river between here and the town No I will not enter your house I am not fit 1 will stand here and tell my tale Dickory shouted Dame Charter take the lantern and run to the kitchen cabin where yell make a tire quicklyAway ran Dickory and standing in the darkness Kate Bonnet told her tale It was not a very satisfactory tile for there was a great part of it which Kate herself did not understand but it sufficed at present for the good dame who had known the girl when she was small and who was soon busily engaged in warming her by her fire refreshing her with food and in fortifying her against the effects of her cold bath by a generous glass of rum made the good woman earnestly asserted from sugarcane grown on Master Bonnets plantation Early the next morning came Dick ory from the kitchen where he had made a fire before that he had been catching some fish and on a rude bench by the house door he saw Kate Bonnet When he perceived her he laughed but as she also laughed it was plain she was not offended This pretty girl was dressed In a large blue gown belonging to the stout Damo Charter and which was quite as much of a gown as she had any possible need for Her head was bare for she had lost her hat and she wore neither shoes nor stockings those articles of apparel having been so shrunken by immersion as to make it impossible for her to get them on Thy mother is a good woman said Kate and I am so glad you did not take me to the town I dont wonder you gaze at me I must look like a frightDickory made no answer but by the way in which he regarded her she knew that ho saw nothing frightful in her face You have been very good to me said she rising and making a step towards him but suddenly stopping on account of her bare feet and I wish I could tell you how thankful I am to you You are truly a brave boy Dick ory the bravest I have ever known His brows contracted Why do you call me a boy ho interrupted I am 19 years old and you are not much more than that1 She laughed and her white teeth made him ready to fall down and wor- shIp her You have done as much said she as any man could do and more Then sho held out her hand and he came and took it Truly you are a man she said and looking steadfastly into his face slip added how very very much I owe you Just then Damo Charter called them to breakfast When they were at the table they talked of what was to bo done next and as above everything else Miss Kate desired to know where her father was and why he hadnt come aboard the Sarah Williams Dickory offered to go to the town for newsI hate to ask too much after all you have done said the girl but after you have seen my father and told him everything for he must be in sore trouble would you mind row ing to our house and bringing me some clothes Madam Bonnet will under stand what I need and she too will want to know what has become of me Of course I will do that cried Dickory grateful for the chance to do her service And If you happen to see Mr New combe in the town will you tell him where I am Now Dickory gave no signs of grati tude for a chance to do her service but his mother spoke quickly enough Of course he will tell Master New combe said she and anybody elso you wish should know In ten minutes Dickory was In his canoe paddling to the town When he was out of the little inlet on the shore of which lay his mothers cottage he looked far up and down the broad river but he could see nothing of the good ship Sarah Williams- I am glad they have gone said Dickory to himself and may they never como back again It is a pity that Maj Bonnet should lose his ship but as things have turned out it is better for him to lose it than to have II- When he had fastened his canoe to a little pier In the town with a rope which he borrowed having now none of his own Dickory soon heard strange news The man who owned the rope told him that Maj Bonnet had gone off In his vessel which had sailed out I IN TEN MINUTES DICKORY WAS IN HIS CANOE PADDLING TO THE TOWN of the harbor in the night showing no light And although many people had talked of this strange proceeding no body knew whether he had gone of his own free will or against it Of course it was against his will cried Dickory The ship was stolen and they have stolen him with it Tho wretches The beasts And then ho went up into the town Dickory now went further to ask more and he soon heard enough The respectable Maj Bonnet had gone away in his own ship with a savage crew far beyond the needs of the ves sel and if he had not gone pirating what had he gone for And to this question Dickory replied every time He went because he was taken away He would not give up his faith in Kato Bonnets father Five minutes afterward a man came running through the town with the news that old Bonnets daughter Miss Kate had also gone away in the ship She was not at home sho was not in the townThat settles It said some people The blackhearted rascal He has gone of his own accord and he taken Greenway and his fair youn daughter with him And what do you think of that said some to the doubter Dickory I dont believe a word of It said he and not wishing on his own re sponsibility to tell what he knew of Mistress Kato Bonnet he rowed upI the river towards tho Bonnet planta tion to carry her message On his way whom should ho see hurrying along tho road by the river bank coming towards the town and looking hot and worried but Mr Martin Newcombe At the sight of the boat ho stopped Ho young man ho cried you are from the town has anything fresh n been heard about Maj Bonnet and his daughterNow was the best and easiest opportunity of doing tho third thing which Kate had asked him to do but his heart did not bound to do it Ho- sat and looked at the man on the river bankDont you hear me cried New combe Has anybody heard further front the Bonnets Dickory still sat motionless gazing at Newcombo Ho didnt want to tell this man anything He didnt want to have anything to do with him Ho hesitated but he could not forget tho third thing he had been asked to do Hito her and her wishes and so ho said with but little animation In his voice Maj Bonnets daughter did not go with him- Instantly came a great cry from the shore Where Is she Where Is she Come closer to land and tell me every thing This was too much Dickory did not like the tone of the man on shore who had no right to command him In that fashion I have no time to stop now said he I am carrying a message to Madam Bonnet j And so he paddled away somewhat I nearer the middle of the river Martin Newcombe was wild he ran and he bounded on his way to tho Bonnet house he called and he appartntlyIcanoe the shore almost at the spot where the fair Kate had been fishing with a hook lying In the aunt Newcombe was already there Tell me he cried toll mo about Miss Kate Bonnet What has befallen her If she did not go with her Lather where is she now I have come said Dickory sturdily as he fastened his boat with the i borrowed rope with a message for Madam Bonnet and I cannot talk with anybody until I have delh- ered it personIcame out in a fine fury to meet them Have you heard from my runaway husband she cried and from his daughter I am ashamed to hear news of them but I suppose I am in duty bound to listen Dickory did not hesitate now to tell what he knew or at least part of It Your daughter said he She Is not my daughter cried the lady thank Heaven I am spared that disgrace And from what hidingplace does she and her sire send me a mes sage Dlckorys face flushed- I bring no message from a hiding place he said nor any from your husband He went to sea in his ship but Mistress Kate Bonnet left the vessel before it sailed and her clothes having been injured by water she sum me for what a young lady in her station might need supposing rightly that you would know what that might be Indeed I do cried Madam Bonnet What she needs are the clouts of a fishgirl and a stick to her back be sides Madam cried Newcombe but she Seeded him not she was growing more angryA fine creature she Is exclaimed the lady to run away from my house in this fashion and treat me with such contumely and then to order me to send her her fine clothes to deck her self for the eyes of strangers Madam cried Newcombe I cannot listen to such speech such Then stop your ears with your thumbs she exclaimed and you will ItI to Dickory Now gt you and tell the young woman who sent you here she must come in sackcloth and ashes if she can get them herIand has humbly asked my pardon for tho foul affront she has put upon me then it will be time enough to talk of One clothes and fripperies Newcombe now expostulated with much temper but Dlckory gave him lIttle chance to speak I carry no such message as that he said Do you truly mean that you deny tho young lady the apparel she needs and that I am to tell her that Get away from lure cried Madam Bonnet with her face In a blaze I send her no message at all and It she comes here on her knees I shall spurn her if it suit me If Dickory had waited a little he might have heard more but he did not wait he quickly turned and away he went in his boat And away went Martin Newcombe after him But as the younger man was barefooted the other ono could not keep up with him and the canoe was pushed off before he reached the waters edge Stop you young rascal cried New ombe Where Is Kate Bonnet Stop and tell mo where she is Troubled as ho was at the tale he laughedgas few In that region had ever paddled before CHAPTER VI DICKORY MAKES A REPORT HE tide was running down and Dickory made a swiftI passage to the town Seeing on the pier the man from whom ho bad borrowed the rope he stopped to return him his property and thinking that the good people of the town j I should know that no matter what had befallen Maj Bonnet his daughter had not gone with him and was safe among friends he mentioned these facts to the man but with very few details being In a hurry to return with ids message IIIsurprise he saw his mother stand hug on the bank in front of a mass of bushes which concealed her from her house Come here Dickory she said and tell me what you have Her sat told his doleful tlleIII fear me mothor he said that Maj Bonnets ship has gone on suite secret and bad business and that heI Is mixed up In it Wise why did ho lpsert his daughter And if ho intended to take her with him that was worse I dont know Dickory said good Damo Charter reflectively we must not bo too quick to believe harm of our fellowboings It does look bad as the townspeople thought that Maj Bonnet should own such n ship with j such a strange crew but he is n man IIhaydone He night have boon sailing out to sonic foreign part to bring backI a rich cargo and needed stout men to defend it from the pirates that he might meet with on the seas Dickory considered Yes mother he said It mIghtI have been that way but I dont believe that he went of his own accord and I dont believe that he would take Ben Greenway with him I think mother that they wore both stolen with the shipIThat might be said his mother but we have no right to take such a view of It and to Impart It to his daughter If he went away of his own accord everything vlll doubtless be made right and we shall know his t- reasons for what he has done It Istnot for us to make up our minds that Maj Bonnet and good lien Greenway have been carried off by wicked men for this would bo sad indeed for that fair girl to believe So remember Dickory that it is our duty always to think the best of everything And now I will go through tho underbrush to the house and when you get there yourself you must tell your story as if you had not told It to me Beta re Dickory had reached his mothers cottage Mistress Kate 1101111I tame running to meet him and she did not seem to be the same girl he had left that morning Her clothes had berg dried and smoothed even her lint which had been found In the boatI had been trade shapely and wearable and its ribbons floated In the breeze Dickory glanced at her feet and as he did so a thrill of strange delight ran through him He saw his own Sunday shoes with sliver buckles and he caught a glimpse of a pair of brown stockings which he knew went always with those shoes I am quite myself again sho saidI noticing his wide ryes and ourI mother has been good enough to lendi me a pair of your shoos and stockings Mine are so utterly ruined and 1 could not walK barefooted Dickory was so filled with pride that this fair being could wear his shoes and that she was wearing them that he could only mumble some stupid words about being so glad to serve her And she wise girl said nothing about the quantities of soft cottonwool which Damo Charter had been obliged I to stuff into the toes before they would stay upon the small feet they covered my father cried Kate what IUut Where is he j Dame Charter was with them eyes hard fixed upon her son Dickory mindful of those eyes toldI her what he had to tell sylng as tie as possible about Maj BonnetI because of course all that tll1latIngshameful conduct of Madam Bonnet for the young lady ought surely to know what sort of a woman her fa thers wifo really was and what she might expect if she should return to her house He could have said even more about tho interview with the an gry woman but his mothers eyes were upon him Kate heard everything without a word and then she burdt into tears My father she sobbed carried away or gone away and one is as bad as the other Dame Charter led the weeping girl to the bench and they talked together There was no optimist in all the British colonies nor for that matter in those belonging to France or Spain or even to the Dutch who was a more conscientious follower of her creed than Dame Charter She sat by Kate and she talked to her until the girl stopped sobbing and began to see for herself that her father knew his own business and that he had most cer tainly sent her a message to go on shore which had not been delivered- I dont know where to go or whereto send she said simply I am lost and that is all of it Oh no cried Dame Charter not that You are with good friends and here you can stay just as long as you likeIndeed sho can said Dickory as if he were making a response in churchIlls mother looked at him and said nothing And then she took Kate out into a little grove behind the house to see if sho could find some ripe or angesIt a fair property although not large which belonged to the Widow Charter Her husband had been a thriving man although a little Inclined to speculations in trado which were entirely out of his line and ho met his death In the sea whenI her nothing but her homo and Inconsiderable laud about It Dickory had been going to n grammar school in tho town and was considered a fair scholar but with his fathers death that stopped and the boy was obliged to work to do what he could since ho had reIgardthe money They were rating dinner when oars iv n ie river and In a inn ment vung around Into the Inlet In tho stern sat Master Martin Newcombo and two men were rowing INow Dickory Charter swore in hisI heart although he was tint accustomed to any sort of blasphemy and as Miss openIscrutinized her face to see If she were glad or not She was glad that was plain enough and he wont out sullen I to receive tho arriving Interloper When they wore all standing on the shorn Kate did not think It worthwhile to ask Master Newcombo how ho happened to know where sho was the young roan waited for no ques sturylfishing on a pier who had told him that young Mistress Kate Bonnet was stopping with Dante Charter Kato wondered greatly for as Dickory haul taster Nowcombe what need hall there been for the latter to ask questions about her of a stranger But she said nothing Anti Dlckory growled in his soul that he had ever spoken to the Ulan on tho pier except to thank him for the rope he had bor rowed Martin Newcombos story went on and ho told that having been extremely angered by the viaduct and words of Madam Bonnet ho had gone Into town and made Inquiries hoping hear something of tho whereabouts of Mistress Kate And having done so br means of the very obliging per non on the pier he had determined that the daughter of Maj Homiet should have her rights and ho had gone to his own lawyer who assured him that being a pursue of recog nized respectability possessing prop erty he was fully authorized knowing the wishes of Mistress Kate Bonnet to go to her stepmother soul demand that those wishes be compiled with If this very reasonable request should be deulod then tho lawyer would take up tho matter himself and would see to It that reasonable raiment and till necessities of a young lady should not bo withhold from her With these Instructions Neweombe had gone to Madam Bonnet and found that much disturbed lady hadI state of partial collapse which followed her passion of the morning and who had declared that nothing In the world would please her better than j to get rid of her husbands daughter and never see her again And If the creature seeded clothes or anything else which belonged to her a maid should pack them up ant anybody who pleased might take then to anyplace provided she heard no moro about them or their owner It was not lung before Newcombe i and the lady of his love were walking away through the little plantation In order that they might speak by them selves iiMi KII INIIrlVrtiIttA- NCIENT I PLANTS I Results of Inquiry Into the Antiquity of Agriculture Few persons realise vhtt Ji wealth I of inUTc t
