They take bla mind off tho immediate surroundings, however. Automatically he whirled around another corner then began doing thlnga with the brake, but too late. Twenty yarda before him approached another auto. In It sat a couple oblivious to their danger. There waa & smash and a crash, a shriek and a yell. And then the three people picked themselves up. The man in the other auto leaped to his feet first and shook his flits at Harry. The lady gathered her hair tnto a coll again and exclaimed: "My hat! My beautiful hat!" Harry followed the direction of her glance, and saw the object of her dismay. A handiomn hat of yellow atraw. adorned with large red flowers, was hopelessly entangled in the steering gear of his machine He extricated It or what ha could of it and offered It to her. But with a tearful exclamation of despair she refuted it "Scoundrel!" shouted her friend. "Vy do you go running around kill-lepeeplei. und ruining delr hats?" "My dear countl" cried the lady. "Not so loud!" But the count was not to be calmed. In iplte of Harry's efforts to explain matters, he continued his staccato of wrath and vengeance, ' giving up the Idea of straightening matter out. Harry popped into his n muc'ne skilfully ran rast the other auto, and resumed his homeward ride In a moment the count and the lady were la their seat again, the count wheeled his machine about, and the pursuit began, ny some deft turnings and twisting Harry managed to evade them and at last reached home.

Pigeon, aa he waa affectionately called, was a young man who tried his best to be a chum of Harry for the reason that he was unusually attracted by Harry's sister Carolyn. It waa natural that Pigeon should be at He wanted Swlfton's that morning. to help Harry have things ready to entertain Lucy and her father, and besides he thought it would cheer Carolyn up to see one of her old friends on her own arrival.

No more of the stag suppers and poker parties for yours truly, I'm ready to quit and be good It my plana work."

In a solution of white of egg in a glass, though, the hardening could be watched, and with a current of 0.5 amperes It was seen to commence midway toward them.

(By 8. It Is well to have a good reason for everything and the main reason for plowing up pastures Is when the forage plants become scarce and thin and weeds and moss are plentiful. Many such fields are found and tboy are allowed to romaln so a most profitless proceeding, for while we bave many light and poor crops on arable land, worn-ou- t pastures are quite as common. It may be the argument Is that there ts not the expense of cultivation that there la with arable. This Is trao, but unremuneratlve grass land Is as undesirable as any other. The durability ot pastures depends to a groat extent to the clean state and good heart of the land when the seed Is sown and also on the quality of tho seod. Some are really perennial and permanent, others contain a great many weeds and all such pastures tall away in a few years. Ilonovatlng may be attempted and Is often successful If begun In time, but as a rulo nothing short of plowing up and recultlvatlng makes really satisfactory permanent pasture.

So It came to pass that ha bled himself to an advertising man and Aid laid his proposition before him the a, m., finding It good and exceed Ingly fertile, recommended therefor a suitable campaign The product and Its appeal to the public were carefully studied, and letters, magailne ads. and other advertising prepartd which would get tho right point of contact. nut the business man was not satisfied. "This Utter doesn't strlko my fancy" and "that ad wouldn't sell goods to me In a thousand years' anl "I don't like the picture that roet" with this folder" ware soma of the criticisms he made when the vailoits copy and layouts came before him.

One Instance was that which rostored to facial sightliness a railroad man who came out of an accident with his nose so disfigured that there was little of It left The surgeon took a piece two Inches In length from the patient's ninth rib. and resting one end of It on the remaining Up of the nose, and the other on the nasal process of the frontal bone, grafted It with care. The still living bone or the rib united with the nasal structure and formed a rafter wblch effectually supported the flaps of skin which were brought up over this newly fashioned feature. Photographs taken before and after show a marked Increase in good looks on the part of the patient. Another payears tient was a woman twenty-fiv- e old, who had fallen on her nose when she was aeven years old. The deformity was of the flattened and concave variety. The surgeon constructed a bridge from part of her ninth rib, and she is now enjoying the possession of a nose of almost Orcclan symmetry. York bers neard Pastor Uusscll here today.
