Winter's dull eyes hardly noted them; the exotic luxuriance of foliage, tho Spanish armor and Spanish cowls were all too common to a denizen ot a Spanish colony In the tropics, to distract his thoughts from his own ugly problem. Ho had been having it out with .himself, aa ho phrased 1U And thero had been moments during those two hours, when ho had ground his teeth and clenched his fists because ot tho futile and furious pain In him. Whon bo recognized Jnnct Smith, by that samo Illuminating flash he recognized that Oils woman who had been tricking him was tho woman that ho loved. Ho believed that ho had sold his lost word to love, but love, after seeming to accept the curt dismissal, wns lightly riding his heart again. "Fooled n second time," he thought with Inexpressible bitterness, recalling his unhappy married life nnd tho pretty, weak creature who had caused him such humiliation. Yet with her thero had been no real wrongdoing, only absolute lack of discretion nnd n childish craving for gaycty and ndulatlon. Poor child! what n woeful ending for It all I Tho baby, tho littlo boy who was their only living child, to die ot a sudden access ot an apparently trifling attack ot croup, while tho mother waa dancing at a post ball!

Now here was another, so different, hut lust as false. Then, he brought himself up with a Jerk; he would bo .fair; ho would look at things as they wero; many a man had been fooled by tho dummy. Ho would not Jump nt conclusions because they wore cruel, any moro than ho would becauBO they woro kind. Thero was such a thing, ho know woll, as credulous sus picion; it did rooro narm man creuu-loutrust. Meanwhllo, ho had his dotall. Ho was to find Archlo; therefore, ho waited.

"Of coureo I bollovo you," purred tho detective, so softly that the colonel knew ho did not bellcvo any more than Mercer suspected. "Ot course, I bellcvo you; but I don't know what to do. It ain't on tho map. I guess it's up to you to throw a littlo light. 1'vo called the boys oft twice already nnd r told 'em to wait an hour or a longer. I got to see tho colonol." "I can trust my Intuitions, or I can trust tho circumstantial evidence," thouRht the colonel. Ho Jumped up and began to pace the court "Seems to bc like a game of bridge before ono can Bee tho dummy," he complained; and, as bo often happens In tho crises ot life, a trivial Illustration struck a wavering mind with the forco of an argument. His thoughts reverted whimsically to the card-tablhow many times had he hesitated over the first lead between evenly balanced suits of four; and how often had ho regretted orwon, depend ing solely upon whether hi a card In stinct had been denied or obeyed! It might be Instinct, this "card Instinct," or It might be a summing up of logical doductlons so swift that the obscure steps wcro lost, and the rcasoncr was unconscious of his logical "Now," processes. own groaned llupert Winter, "I am up against It Sho looks like a good woman; she seems like a good woman; but I have only my Impressions and Aunt Rebecca's against the apparent facts In tho case. Well, Aunt llcbecca Is a shrewd ono!" Ho sat down and thought harder. Finally ho rose, smiling. He had threshed out his problem; and his conclusion. In audibly but very distinctly uttered to himself, was: "Me for my own Im pressions! If that girl Is In with tk'.s gang, either what they are after Isn't so bad or they have made her believe It Isn't bad." He looked Idly about him at tho arched doorway ot the outer court It was carved with a favqrltq mission design of flowers with vaso-llkfluting below. Thero was a tiny crack In ono ot tho flowers, the tiniest crack In tho world. He looked at It without seeing It, or seeing it with only the outer half of his senses, but ho could not havo told how Into his effort to plcrco his own tan gle there crept a sudden Interest, a half-houmuch-dlscussc- d eight-pointeo Jumped nimbly out of tbo vehicle. Hi greeted them with n pollto removal ol his cap, a bow, and a flashing smIU which made the circuit of the beholders. Hlrdsall and tho colonel reco nlzcd the traveling enthusiast of U Flreless Stove. Tho colonel took matters into hit own hands. "I think you're tho young gentleman who took my ncphow away," said he. "Will yon kindly tell us whero he 1st" "And don't get giddy, young gentle-man.Hlrdsall chimed In, "because w know perfectly well that you are ho( tho agent of the Peerless Flreless Stove." "I've got one here on trial, and I'v.e como back to see if they like It," explained the young man, In silken accents, but with a dancing gleam ot th eyes. "We aro going to keep it," said Mep cer. "Klto," calling tho unseen Jap, "fetch that Flreless Stove this gentleman loft us, and show it to this gentleman here." "Oh, cut it out!" Hlrdsall waved him oft. "It's only ten minutes before our fellows will come. You can put the police court wise with all that. Try It on them; it don't go with us." "Whero is tho boy?" said th colonel. "Tell him, If you know," said Mer cer. "This gentleman," ho explained, "left a stove with us to test He. was here about it this morning, and w gavo Archlo to him to take to th Palace hotel." "And ho is thero now," said- tha young man. "Did you leave him there?" asked tho colonel. "Yes, did you?" Insisted Mercer. The young man looked from Mercer to tho other two men. Thero was no vlslblo appeal to tho southerner, but Winter felt sure of two things: Ono, r was Morcer'd conthat tho federate whom he was striving to shield by pretending to disavow; the other, that for some reason Mercet Was a3 anxious for the answer as were " new-come- they. "Why-y,- " sudden keenness of scrutiny of this minute, Insignificant crack In the stone. He became aware that the crack was singularly regular, preserving the form of tho flower and the fluting be neath. Klto, tho Japanese, who was sitting at the far end of tho court, con versing in amity with Haley, Just hero rose and came to this particular pil lar. The Irishman sat alone, rimmed by tho sunset gold, littlo spangles of motes drifting about him; for tho mer est second Winter's glanco lingered on him ere It went to tho Jap, who passed him, courteously saluting. After ho had passed, the colonel looked again at tho column and the crack It was not there. "Chlto, chlto!" muttored the colo nel. Carelessly he approached tbo column and took tho same posture as tho Jap. Unobtrusively his Angers strayed over tho stono. Ho scratched tho surface; not stone, but cement keeping his Ho tanned cautiously, hand well hidden by his body; no hoi low sound rowarded htm; but all at once his groping lingers touched little round object undor tho bold point flower. Ho didn't ot nn daro press on it; Instoad ho resumed Ho glanced his cautious tapping. nhoiit htm. Save for Haley ho was nlono In the patfo. Ho pressed on the round whtto knob, and what he had half expected happened: A segment of the column swung on Inner hinges, disclosing tho hollow center of the engaged columns on cither sldo. He looked down. Nothing but darkness was visible, but while ho stood, tensely holding bis broatb, bis abnormally scasltlvo auricular nervo caught distinctly tho staccato breath ot that kind of sigh which Is like, a groan, and a volco said moro wearily than angrily: "Oh, damn It all!" Almost simultaneously, he heard tho faint footfalls of the men within; bo must roplaco his raovablo flowor. The coluain was Intact, and ho was bending his frowning brows on tho stylc-bat- o ot another when Hlrdsall and Mercer entered together, Mercer, with a shrug of his shoulders at tho detective's dogged suspicion, preceding the eight-pointe- "you see, Mr. ah, gentlemen, you see, I was told to take the boy to the Palace hotel, and I set out to de It We weren't going at moro than aa clip, yet some fooz-lc- r of a cop arrested us for speeding: It was perfectly ridiculous, and I tried to shake him, but It was no use.

Naturally, I was a bit worried; but after I had looked up the forco and the neighborhood, it occurred to me to 'phono to the Palace. I did, nnd I was told he was there." "Who told you?" The question came hesitated the stove pro-mote- simultaneously out of thrco throats. "Why, Mrs. Winter that's what sh,e called herself." "Hut not thrco minutes ago Mrs. Winter told me that he wasn't there, remnrked Mercer, coldly. "When did you telephone?" "It was at least IB minutes ago," tho young man said dolefully. "I say, wouldn't you better call them up again? Thero may bo some explanation. I shouldn't have como back without the kid It I hadn't been sura ho was safe."

TIME tf to Pain fence our farms and build our telephone lines? The day has come when we can no longer go to the woods to get posts and poles for any purpose. What shall we do? is in the minds of every farmer. Our oaks, sassa fras and mulberry are about all e farmers gone. And the are looking about to see what kind of timber they can grow that will be profitable. Some who have wet land are planting that true and tried wide-awak- favorite, Catalpa. Of this plant there are but two : kinds Catalpa Bignonioides named for that tribe of Indians of to-w- it North Carolina, by Catesby, who discovered it in 1827. It has immense leaves with blue or white flowers, trumpet shaped, and long cylindrical pods. This is merely an ornamental species, quick to grow and quicker to decay. Another catalpa is more contiguous to Tennessee and the South, Catalpa Speciosa Mississippi Vally. Of slower growth, hardy, compact and easy to cultivate. This catalpa will pay and make its owner good money if managed right from the start. Now let us see what one acre will pay in fifteen years. One acre will set twenty-seve- n hundred and four catalpa trees, four feet apart each way. These trees will produce to the average one post to the tree in five years, and at a basis of 30 cents per post will bring $811.20. In 10 years the estimate is two posts to the tree, which, at 30 cents each will be $1622.40. In fifteen year they will average four. posts to the tree, bringing the owner grass will follow and flourish among S3244.S0 in good money. locust trees which furnish excellent not every farmer who has pasturage for sheep, horses and Why one or two acres of wet land plant cattle. There are hundreds of acres worn that in catalpa. It will be worth more in this timber than anything out farm land that does not produce that it can be planted in ; and the enough in ten years to pay taxes one beauty of this crop is, when it is cut year. Why not plant this in black locust off, it will send forth shoots from the stump and grow a second set of and realize more from it than any of posts, more rapidly than the other part of your farm. This Is a business proposition worthy of first. weighty and immediate considera But the man who has the hill land is not left out of the posts proposi- tion. 7 feet A Black locust fence-potion by any means.

Every farmer, rich or poor, should base boards and palings. It is a grow for himself an acre or two of beauty, too. The black locust is planted and black locust. And if our young cultivated in the same manner as farmers set a few thousands trees, catalpa, and will give fine results on it will pay them better than life in hill land, whether the slope be north, surance, as they are sure to reap south, east or west, and will average the benefit of such investment, and one post to a tree in fife years ; two once you 'have planted locust you posts to a tree in ten years, and will always have an increase, as they will produce a second crop post to a tree in fifteen years. quicker than the first from stump Black locust will grow on the poorest hill land, over red gullies, sprouts.

He usually gave these orders himself. Even Andrew Jack, son, in his time, could and did make trips by steamer from Louis, vllle to New Orleans without incident or discovery that the greatest man of bis day was aboard. A story is told of Jackson that on one of these trips there happened to be a big rough "bully" of a fellow aboard the same boat who had most of a day made fruitless effort to find some one who would engage him In a fight. Watching the man's ma. neuvers and how the fellow seemed to suffer, Jackson approached him when the boat had left Cairo, and told him he had thought over the matter and decided to accommodate Baptist Church, Hickman, Ky.

Tho claim by Champ Clark that tho bill would Increaso tho cost ot living to tho laboring man while affording no relief to tho farmer Is strikingly bornn out by tho hypocrisy ot what is said about a tax on coffee.

At an afternoon meeting in the temperance cause, Gov. Shaforth presiding, the defective Cary local option law was denounced, while 6,000 people at Christian Endeavor meetings all over the city took similar action.

His sisters were his slaves, and thereby he is spoiled as a husband. I wish I could train several hundred boys to be husbands for the next generation. Do you suppose they'd consider it their prerogative to drive the girls out of the easiest chair, take the sunniest corner of the room, the best place by the Hggt, throw books, papers or slippers down for some one to pick up, grow up with the idea that a wife must be a valet and the rest of the household stand respectifully by to obey orders? You smile, but this Is anything but a subject to laugh over I really believe that husbands never think that their unkind words hurt. They don't realize the difference to us for Instance in their manner when they come to dinner. All day the wife has been alone with the servants and .the children, and Is more hungry for a kind word from her husband than an epicure feast. He comes in just as the dinner bell rings. 'For a wonder, dinner is once ready on time,' the husband says. Couldn't he have saved the heartstab by saying, 'That a pleasant sound to a hungry fellow.'

A new and profitable vocation for women Is suggested by tho statement of Col. Walsh, In command of St George's barracks recruiting station, that fomales are eligible as recruiting agents for tho army. London Woman. A woman who is sick and suffering, and won't at least try a medicine which has the record of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, is to blame for her own wretched condition. There are literally hundreds of thousands of women in the United States who have been benefited by this famous bid remedy, which was produced from roots and herbs over thirty years ago by a woman to relieve woman's suffering. Read what these women say : Camden, N. J. " It Is with pleasure send my testimonial for Lydla E. Plnkliatn's Vefrctnblethat I Compound, hoplmr It mar induce other suffering women to avail themselves of tho benefit of this vnltinblo remedy. " I suffered from pains In my hack and side, sick hcadnches, no appetite, was tired and nervous all tho time, and so weak 1 could hardly stand. JLydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound mado mo a well woman and this valuable medicine shall always havo my praise." Mrs. W. V. Valentine, 002 Lincoln Ave., Camden, K. Erie, Pa. I suffered for five years from female at last was almost helpless. I tried three doctors troubles, and but they did me no pood. Sly sister advised me to try Lydia E. PJnkham's Veffotahlo Compound, and it lias mado mo well and strong. I hope alt suffering women will just give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial, for It is worth its weight In gold." Mrs. J. P. Eudllch, IC F. . 7, Eric, Pa. Since we guarantee that all testimonials which we publish are genuine, is it not fair to suppose that if Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable. Compound had the virtue to help these women it will help any other woman who is suffering from the same trouble. For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has" been the standard remedy for female Ills. No sick woman docs Justice to herself who will not try this famous medicine. Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and has thousands of cures to its credit, If tho slightest trouble appears which understand, JsV you do not Mnss for herwrite to Mrs. Plukham at Lynn, advice it Is freo and always helpful.

He went down to the river and push ed the boat from the shore and waded to where a limb hung over, saturated bis clothing with coal oil, lighted a match and set fire to his clothing, took the dose of arsenic, put the muzzle of the revolver to his temple, pushed the boat from under him, and pulled the trigger.

Blaney, on the religious rrnaisance of the twentieth century, which were to have been delivered at thcChrlstian church on April 23 have been postponed to 24 25-2- 6 Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Rev. Friday evening, May Blaney's subjects are unique, and as they indicate an originality refreshing and absorbing, we give them below: May 4 The Three Songs of the Angels. May 5 The Cherubim. May 6 The Flaming Sword. May 7 The Divine Fatherhood. Pastor M. L. Blaney, of the Christian Church, will give his course of Popular Lectures to assist in paying for the cost of repairing their Church, which was recently struck by lightning. Besides repairing the damage done by lightning, the building has been so remodeled that it is a real treat to be privileged to view The audiits various departments. torium has been rcpapered and painted and wainscoted in most artistic style and the windows have been ornamented so as to present the real appearance of stained glass. The foldingdoorsbetweentheentrance and auditorium and the door on each side of the baptistery gives three rooms one of which is for the Library. To these has been added the ladies' dining parlor, 8x23 feet which is reached by circular stairs and is ar ranged so that it may be opened into the auditorium by sliding windows that will enable at least fifty persons to be seated comfortably and enjoy the services, thus giving a seating capacity of over 300. Mr. Blaney's suggestion to make a heating plant by encasing their large coal burner in brick beneath the floor was at first questioned, but has since proved most useful, cleanly, economical and comfortable. Those who have not visited the church re cently will doubtless attend these lectures and rejoice with those who have already enjoyed the beauty and comfort now offered.

The young man jumped Into a "dug-outor "Joe-boat- " and ttarted "after the truant. When he was about a quarter of a mile from the shore the waves were running high and soon filled bis boat with water, causing it to sink. He managed to climb back on the boat, and continued to float with it down stream a distance of about 6 miles. All the while several friends were following along the bank trying to find a skiff so that they could go to his asiistance. At the latt moment a skiff was found, and while it was being launched the unfortunate young man cried "I'm gone boys; no use to come." Before they could reach him he sank, presumably he cramped or chilled to utter exhaustion. A party left this morning for No. 8 schute, where the tragedy occurred, to search for the body. Jas.

Cotton Seed Hulls What shall the arorage farmer In tho northwest do, In Minnesota, for example, with an nvcrago herd of cows In both number and quality, relative to feed supplies? Assuming that Mils avorago farmer has only a half doon milk cows, shall ho build a silo and grow sllngo corn or provide other roughngo? This question was a fcaturo at last wlntor's mooting ot tho Minnesota State Dairymen's association. It rather leaned toward Improving tho farm with clover, etc., rather than growing sllngo corn. His remarks herd of cows rather than tho well dairy herd. Mr. Wilson placed tho emphasis In handling tho ordinary dairy herd on tho farm on making n profit from the farm as a whole, Instead of from tho milk cows simply; otherwlso there mny ba disappointment In the final outcome at tho end of the year. Ho believes there ts very little net profit In the average crop of wheat alono, and felt much the samo way about tho avcraao dairy herd made up, perhaps, of cows of Indifferent quality. "The farmers of Minnesota roust get down to tho Idea of not profit on tho farm as a whole," said Mr. Wilson. "Look out for real business manage ment Just aa surely as tho city mer chant does In considering his Investments. Wo must grow grass crops and clover In order to keep up tho .productivity of the soli." On a farm of 160 acres, 40 acres ot grass and clover should be grown each year. He believes that farmers can more profitably uso such good hay aa wo grow, or can wisely uso roughage, such as rod der corn, roots, millets, etc. Depend largely upon hay and a few roots, tho latter for succulence, rather than silage corn. For tho average Minnesota farm, with a few cows, this question of sllago means a considerable tax In the way of a structure, etc Mr. Wilson be lieves enough roots can be grown on one-hato ono acre to adequately supplement the hay. It Is moro expensive to supply sllago, ho says, for tho smsll herd ot cattle than for tho large herd, where, ot course, conditions jnay ma terlally differ. In tbe large dairy herd the farmer can wisely put up more silage and use moro of it tho Isrgor the number of cows kept, also a larger amount of manuro, and thus avoid the growing of so much clover, as is necessary on tho averago farm with a fow cows.

The poor gambler is having hard lines all over the country. Driven from the metropolitan tracks of the East, from Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, California, and Louisiana, beaten back and back, he found at last down in Texas what he considered the vail of his defense. Kentucky, we may state in passing, will outlaw him at the next session of the legislature. But Texas, even Texas is now after him, and when Texas fully realises what he is, what he stands for and does to every community he hooks his tentacles into, Texas, too, will give him a right swift kick that will put him out of business forever down in that empire of a State. The poor sport is looking now towards Mexico and Cuba and Canada and South America. He hopes in those faraway lands to secure a permanency of tolerance which will guarantee to him the noble privilege of "improving the thoroughbred.

Very few cities permit gambling; none, in, fact, so far as we know, openly. Yet this condition is a thing of the last few years.

Memphis had scores of them. Some were run clandestinely, but nearly all were of class. The laws were the wide-ope- n on the books, but public sentiment had not grown so strong and em phatic as to command their enforcement. The vicious element that these resorts brought about them selves were probably responsible for the change.
