might be wellas we have said a good deal about hive life to give attention to the practi cal art of beekeeping- In order that every thing sail may he trusted we shall quote directly from the best bee authority in the country namely from speci alists First we shall learn where bees can be kept what use they are to crops and how stings maybe avoided in the handling of the honeytnakers It may be safely said that any place where farming gardening or fruit raising can be successfully followed is adapted to the profi able keeping of bees in a limited way at least ifuot extensively Many of these localities will sup port extensive apairies In addi tion to this there are within the borders of the United States thousands of good locations for the api aristsforest praire swamp sand mountain regions where Agricul ture has not yet gained a foothold either because of remotness from markets or the uninviting charac ter of soil or climate The values of bees in the pes11ine cropsisrant the keeping of a small apiary even if circumstances do not favor its management in such a manner as to secure the largest possible crops of honey or to insure the sav f rng oi all swarms The lnnlity and quantity of nitfSiy varieties of apples plttl lspearsaudsUl ll fruits depend absolutely upon cum pete cross Pohlinatioa The t most active agents in this work time honey bees Any person with tairly steady nerves an i some patience and courage can easily learn to control and manipulate bees There are it is trtie a few exceptional individuals whose systems are uarticularly susceptible to the poison injected by time bee so much so that serious effects follow a single sting Such cases are however very rare In most instances where care is nc t taken to avoid allstings the sys tem eventually becomes accustom el to tha poison so that beyond momentary pain a sting causes no inconvenience To a certain extent the helief exists that bees have without appar emit cause a violent dislike for some people while othms without any effort are received into their favor The latter part of thisprop osition has a better foundation than the first part for it is the ac tions rather than any peculiarity tf the individual himself that angers the bees Bees prefer of course not to be disturbed hence they usually keep guards on the lookout for intruders When visitors approach the hives these guards are apt to fly towards them as if to inquire whether harm IS intended or not and should the visitor pot inspire them with fear h using smoke or other similar means but should show fear and nervousness he will be very ltkel to arouse their suspicions still further or endeavor to dodge their ipproach Indeed one not accus toiled to the notes of bees is very I cely unconsciously to dodge hit head about when a worker buzzes uncomfortable close to his face It may be a movement of but an inch or two hut perhaps a qiick jerk and is resenteda sting follows ye he recipient declares that he di nothing to cause the attack Jut that bees merely hate him and al ways sting lime when he approach es them 01 the other randan equally unprotected person win mo ves about with deliberation ini generally under the

excellence The rotes of all five jurors were cast for the model pre sented Miss Evelyn B Longman of- Chicago MISS LONGMANS STATUE OF VICTORY AT THE CHICAGO EXPOSITION Miss Longmans design has two pan els representing Peace and War On the peace panel is a figure symbolizing science an old man in an attitude of deep thought explaining a difficult problem to two students of the acad emy On the war panel patriotism is represented by a female figure sym bolical also of the home the protection of which is assumed to be the reason for the existence of the navy Under her draperies is a coat of armor and with one hand on a cannon she points with the other to the distance where masts of ships show the destination of the marching figures in the back ground In the upper panels of the door arc festoons supported by shellsof oak leaves over the war panel and olive over that of peace In the lower panels wreaths of the same leaves inclose tenames of naval heroes In the transom is the

to be an unprecedented event in the artistic history of the country and a bright future is predicted for the young sculptress I consider Miss Longman to be one of the most promising of our younger sculptors said Mr Daniel C French whose assistant she has been for the last four years Miss Longman was born in Win chester Ohio her father Edwin H Longman being a musician and an ar tist Drawing was one of her childish amusements and she began modeling without instruction in the art depart ment of Olivet College Her work there attracted the attention of Lorado Taft ChicagoArtand during the first year paid her ex penses by doing library work Then she was made an assistant instructor In the school and a year or two later she came to New York where she soon after became an assistant to Mr Taft She is rather proud of the fact that she has never studied abroad and also that she has been able to meet all the expenses of her artistic edu cation herselfISculptress Is Already Famous The best known work of Miss Long man is the bronze figure of Victory which was carved for the Festival Hall at the St Louis Worlds Fair For this she was awarded a silver medal At the close of the fair the original was brought to the Chicago Art Insti tute A bronze reproduction has been purchased by the Union League Club and will adorn the entrance to the club roomsAnother one of Miss Longmans works

Vesuvian Eruption It was during the repose of early morning the Springtime sun was casting its golden rays over the Sierra Nevadas and striking down Into the peaceful slumbering valley of the Sacramento All the Western Hemi sphere was at peace with the elements Suddenly there came an awful growl ing and crashing beneath the very cen tre of San Francisco and in a tenth of the space of time required to describe the event falling walls and fire combined to worn on the metropolis of the Pacific the most appalling natural calamity which has occurred on this continent since the landing of the Pil grims The destruction that has been accomplished is almost incalculable The inferno of flames which burst forth simultaneously in various parts of the city was rendered still more terrible by the repeated quakings of the earth by which the rescuers were in mo mentary danger of being buried with the dead beneath the falling structures The very earth itselfour own mother earthproved as treacherous as a deadly snake and the usual ocean breeze by a strange perversion of na ture hauled around to a point where it fanned the flames to intensity and became a deadly agent of destruction The general dismay of the populace was augmented by the constant roar of dynamite explosions made in a vain effort check the progress of the flames The vast pall of smoke that blottedout the sky did not tend to alle viate the general anxiety Yet in such surroundings calculated to inspire uni versal panic and madness there were performed numberless feats of heroism that will remain on the scroll of time as illustrious proofs of the nobility which is hidden beneath the surface of ordinary life Cool heads and brave hands with stout hearts behind them performed their work of rescue in the very face of death and even the indescribable horror of the earthquake was overcomeSan a rich and proud city has been swept by fires before and has phoenix like arisen from her ashes Moreover she has more

have suffered with the metropolis of the State No Connection With Vesuvius Coming as this disaster did practi cally coincident with the Vesuvian ca lamity in Italy many persons suppose that there was a direct relation between the two This idea however is logically contradicted by Director Charles D Walcott of the Geological Survey Mr Walcott holds that there is no possibility of a connection between the earthquake and the Italian volcano for these two are entirely different scientific phenomena sible for such earthquakes and volcanic disturbances Great earthquakes says Mr Walcott AS APPEAR of to edible in to of respon are caused by volcanoes but by faulting plains is particularly true of both seaboards of the United States Mr Walcott and other tists of the Geological and Geodetic Surveys agree that scientifically the recent disturbances were caused by conditions identical with those pertain ing during the earthquake which demolished Charleston S C on August 31 1886 Volcanoes occasionally cause shaking of the earths but the disturbances occasioned by pentup seeking to escape are felt only cause generally attributed to earthquakes is the gradual cooling of the earth which is known to still be a molten mass inside When any object cools it contracts and so will the as it grows colder This contraction would unavoidably cause a disturbance in the already hardened shell that sur rounds the inner mass That must give way at some point Aside from the contractions of the earths surface another cause is given that might affect the changing of the sur face of a given part of the world This cause is the accumulation of a vast weight of sedimentary deposit brought by rivers For example the Mis sissippi River is entirely made up of the deposits of the streams washing from higher lands The weight of that deposit would be difficult to calculate and resting upon a portion of the earths shell might occasion its sinking This theory is held by some scientists in connection with the Cali fornia disaster for the Sacramqnto River is the depositor of vast weights of sediment in the Pacific waters near San Francisco Greatest Natural Disasters of History Pompeii and

an interesting article in the British Medical Journal Plaster ears noses and lips were common among the Indians where the cutting off of these features was a punishment in use and Greek and Roman veterans who had lost a leg or an arm in war tried to make the deficiency by artificial substitutes It is stated further What is said to be the oldest artifi cial leg in existence is now in the mu

President Roosevelt and Speaker Cannon Both Masons Are Princi pal Actors10000000 for Sen ate and House When President Roosevelt on April 14th laid the cornerstone of the new office building for the House of Representatives it marked the beginning of improvements on Capitol Hill which will make that section of Washington comparable with the ancient hills of Rome and Greece crowned with magnificent buildings in which met the solons of ages past This new building occupies a square and is about a hundred yards distant PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT from the south wing of the Capitol with which it is to be connected by an underground passageway through which members of Congress may pass back and forth from the legislative hall to their offices There are 410 office rooms providing a room for each Representative in Congress and Delegate and leaving vacant nineteen rooms for a future growth in the mem bership of the House through a reap portionment of districts or the admis sion of new States The House annex and the Senate office building also under construction at the opposite end of the plaza are being put up to pro vide for the members of the National Legislature quarters absolutely needed for the efficient transaction of public business The great growth in size of both branches of Congress has caused the Capitol building to be en larged but this was only sufficient to provide the necessary space for the assembly halls of House and Senate and the committee rooms the latter in many cases being small and badly ventilated Under present conditions individual members unless they hap pen to be chairmen of committees have no offices and a badly congested condition exists Realizing the need of one great legislative centre where Senators and Representatives may concentrate their activities and be comfortably quartered Congress three years ago authorized the construction THE PLAZA IT WILL NEW BUILDINGS ARE COMPLETED This of the House and Senate office buildingsSenate Ceremony Next Fall The House annex was started first and is in a more advanced stage of construction than the Senate building though the cornerstone of the latter may be ready to put in place next Fall It is estimated that the two buildings together will involve stn outlay of about ten million dollars In size and design they are identical they occupy positions balanced in their relation to the Capitol and are planned to fit into a general architectural scheme The height of the buildings has been restricted that they may not overpower the Capitol and they have been kept simple in design Without pediments domes or other accentuated points to prevent their detracting in any way from the effect of the Capitol itself The exterior design for the buildings is classic suggesting in its general di vision of parts the Garde Meuble in the Place de la Concorde Paris while the pavilions are modeled on those of the Colonnade de Louvre Architecturally the front is divided into two parts the lower corresponding to the first story of the building constituting a rusti cated base on which extending through the second and third stories is the colonnade surmounted by its entablature and balustrade It is be lieved that the effect of the two flank ing buildings will be to give unity to the whole scheme and to emphasize architecturally the great beauty of the Capitol all of the lines leading up to and centering in its dome Work Progressing Rapidly Although the digging of the trenches for the House office building was be gun less than a year ago the structure is now up to the first floor line To hasten the work Elliott Woods Superintendent of the Capitol directed that construction begin before all the speci fications and contracts were complete This was done through letting out the stone contract first by authority of the House Building Commission It is cal culated that both buildings will be ready for the Sixtieth Congress- In accordance with Masonic traditions the ceremony was conducted in the open air in a simple unostenta tious manner In every detail it corre sponded as nearly as practicable with the historic ceremony in which President Washington participated The articles placed in the cornerstone were largely identical in character with those deposited in the original Cant tol stone by Federal Lodge and ass both President Roosevelt and Speaker Cannon are members of the Masonic order the occasion in every way harmonized with the spirit of the ceres mony directed by the Virginia jurisdus tint in laying the cornerstone of trio

Which Rivals Pom peiis Destruction The Famous Italian Novelist Marion Crawford Tells of the Terrors of the Big Volcano History of For mer Eruptions The whole world looked on awe struck at the recent fierce outbreak of stupendous and devastating force in the Bay of Naples The eruption of Mount Vesuvius is believed to be the most destructive since the days of Pompeii A D 79 The whole story of the eruption of 1906 is a sorrowful tale of stricken victims devastated vineyards ruined homes and terrorstricken flying people and it is hard to realize that the same scenes have been enacted there so many times before Pliny the noted ancient historian described the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 in a series of letters to Tacitus This letter described a dark cloud rising in a single pillar from the crater of the mountain and from this a column spread and upon it rested a great roof built by invisible carpen ters Resting ever on its single pillar like a great mushroom this roof shut out the sky from all those wide acres extending sixteen miles away The light ashes of the fire from Vesuvius descended like snow upon Pompeii burying it to great depths Hercu laneum was drowned in a sea of vol canic mud Those who have read the letters of Pliny find similarity in the description written by the noted novelist Marion Crawford There is probably no other American living who is so well ac quainted with conditions as they exist in Italy He has taken up his permanent abode in the Italian hills The IN ERUPTION Ute customs and mannerisms of the Italian have been pictured by him in stories which have made him famous In his cabled description to the New York Times Crawford stated that the recent eruption of Vesuvius had been grumbling for many weeks before the outbreak which did the incalculable damageSmoke TwoMiles High An enormous volume of black smoke rises to a height of two miles above the crater he wrote Incandescent masses of stone are thrown up 3000 feet A continuous southeasterly wind carries the ashes over Naples which is so completely enveloped in darkness that for three days our communications by sea have been cut off Fissures have opened far below the cone emiting many streams of lava one of which has completely destroyed the town of Boscotrecase which had 10000 inhabitants Another has reached the outskirts of Torre del Greco Others have destroyed thousands of acres of fertile cultivated land with farmhouses and stock The great cone of Vesuvius col lapsed with awful thundering and flames and the cable railway the ob servatory and the large hotel near it were all totally destroyed The lava carried vast masses of burnt stone and sulphur on its surface like dross on melted lead and nothing was visible toward Boscotrecase but endless acres of dark scoriae broken here and there by the greenish smoke of sul phur At one point we found a great pine tree torn up by its roots and turned to black charcoal the air was almost unbreathable the heat intense The faces of the people who upon the edge of the arrested stream expressed terror of exhaustion from re cent panic Feeble Attempts of Man Useless When the stream of fire threatened Boscotrecase soldiers dug a wide ditch across its patch in the hope of divert ing its course but the molten stream advanced like a colossal serpent of fire turning its head to the right and left as a snake does but keeping its general direction toward the fated town It was not till it reached the first house sending up great showers of sparks that the people finally fled for their livesI saw men women and children and infants whose mothers carried them at the breast or in their aprons Dogs too and cats were on the carts and sometimes even chickens tied together by the legs and piles of mattresses and pillows all white with dust under the lurid glare We ourselves could hardly breathe This dispatch corresponds exactly in detail to Plinys letters The same flaming mountain and shaking earth the same stifling smoke and ashes the same terrifying darkness and the same helpless distracted crowd stretching vain hands to their gods for succor Originally Vesuvius was in the form of a single cone Later eruptions have broken down the southern side of the original crater leaving the northern semicircle which is called Monte Somma A smaller central cone had grown up within the ancient ruin It is this inner cone that had its top blown off Before the recent eruption the height of the mountain was about 4000 feet In prehistoric days Vesuvius was probably twice as high the top having been blown off centuries before the eruption that destroyed Pompeii Since the year 1631 Vesuvius has never been wholly at rest In that year 18000 lives were lost The clouds of steam that came from the rush of water into the hot mass below the surface condensed and fell in a boiling rain that scorched everything with which it came in con tact The very sea drew back the skirts of its dark blue robe and then swept forward again far beyond its old limits The last of the great convulsions be fore the recent one occurred in 1872 Then like this one there was a great lava flow together with throwing up of burning rock and the fall of ashes upon the surrounding country Vesuvius is one of a group of similar mountains in the Mediterranean Sea its comrades being JEtna Stromboli and Vultano which last gave the name to all mountains of this kind That in turn was called after Vulcan the god who made the armor for the fighting deities of the ancient world and forged the very thunderbolts of Jove himself His workshop was under Mount Etna There the inhabitants of the hillsides heard him shaping great masses of iron with his terrible hammer stroke while the nameless slaves of the forge dimly imagined creatures of that old day blew the gigantic bellows and held great bars in place while the master worked The Greeks with even their learning did not inquire into the scien tific reasons for the mighty utterings of the mountain they knew what the awful roar of those volcanic mountains meant And our wise men with their figures and books know little of what is going on in the fiery caverns under the earths thin crust Nature soon heals her scars Al ready we are told in dispatches spots of green have appeared on the black ened sides of Mount Pelee and it will not be very long before the olive and the vine and the clustering villages will find their way back again to the slopes of Vesuvius VESUVIUS curling crowded TO RENEW OLD MISSION San Juan Capistrano Will Live Again After Long Years of Silence All who have heard of the picturesque old Franciscan Missions of California will be interested to learn that San Juan Capistrano the most poetic of all these ruined structures which contrib ute so much to the foreign look of our Italy is soon again to be made the centre of religious activity and that after nearly a century of neglect its buildings are to be restored to their original estate This mission is on the railway line between Los Angeles and San Diego and by reason of being visible from the railroad is to Eastern travelers per haps the best known of all California missions except Santa Barbara and San Gabriel which are among the regulation sights for visitors to Southern California With the restoration of San Juan Capistrano and the re sumption of residence there by the Franciscan Brotherhood it too will no doubt soon become a tourist resort The first year of the American In dependence saw work begun upon this ancient edifice in what was then a vast wilderness inhabited only by Indians The site is in a lovely sequestered val MISSIONI ley which beginning back in the can yons of the coast range winds among grassy knolls and great treeless hills out to the Pacific upon which it opens three miles west of the mission With the aid of the Indians over whom the padres exerted both temporal and spir itual dominion the Franciscans estab lished here the most pretentious of all the California mission churches In stead of being constructed of the cus tomary aaobe brick of the country it was built of stone laid out in the form of a Latin cross with a great cloistered quadrangle adjoining Here besides administering to the spiritual welfare of the Indians and gathering them into the fold of the church the fathers set them to the care and the cultivation the land which yielded great wealth olives of cattle sheep grain grapes and Destroyed by an Earthquake On the morning of December 8 1812 all without warning came a great catas trophe While the church was crowded with kneeling worshipers a shock of earthquake visited the valley and top pled the great stone tower over upon the roof crashing through which it buried the congregation beneath the wreckage of beams tiles and stones and upward of forty human beings lost their lives in the twinkling of an eye This earthquake ranks in sever ity with that of Charleston in 1886 So great was the disaster that although the mission continued to be conducted THE OLD WELL IN THE COURTYARD for twentytwo years longer no at tempt seems to have been made by the padre3 to restore the church edifice and it and its adjoining buildings and cloisters have remained to this day an imposing and beautiful ruin Touched gently by Times hand dignified in out line and rich in color it is replete with subjects for the artist and Is the miration of every traveler With the restoration of the buildings the in tention is to create here a college for the priesthood as at Santa Barbara and to make of San Juan Capistrano an important factor in the work of the Roman Catholic Church in Southern California THE LOVE OP AZARIC Beneath the outfiung branches of a mighty oak tree a giant who had stood sentinel in that lonely dip on the wolds for twice three hundred years two men were standing their figures made more or less distinct by the rays a big conical lantern of antique pattern that the elder of the two carried in his gnarled and blood less fingers a figure strangely akin to the giant tree beneath which he aged man was Zachary Doy his back bent by years of hard labor such as few of the modern generation of borers know a man who had been an experienced farmhand while the man beside him his master was still a puling infant The old fellow set down his lantern on the ironbound earth His quaver ing voice stabbed the silence Now do ee barken unto me Master Alaric he said slowly Ive served ee faithful you and your feyther afore ee for nigh on fifty year and I tell ee master that what ee do purpose for to do is again all right and reason This yere oak treethe Kingscote Oak as all the countryside do know her for to boha bin here as a land mark and a pride for longer than us poor souls can reckon To cut her down do mean as I be right well as sured that Kingscote luck will fail wi un If so boAlaric Kingscote broke in upon his garrulity with a forced laugh If Kingscote luck could fall lower than it has Zachary he said bitterly you need have little fear that I would touch bark with axe Now hear me old friend This tree represents the last thing upon the farm that can bring in the money I must have to tide over the bad times in store The merchants have offered me two hundred pounds for the tree Theres only one rotten limb upon it Theyll come tomorrow with their carts and take it away He laid his hand upon the old mans shoulder Get you home to bed Zachary he added gent ly You can do nothing here Its 9 oclock now By midnight with THE QUADRANGLE OF THE of ad of luck the Kingscote Oak will be down The old fellow looked wistfully in to the handsome face of his young master Master Alaric he said hoarsely Ive fiftyfive pun three shillin and fipence apenny laid away in a hole in the floor omy cottage If so be as thatll save the Kingscote Oak whyGo home with you Zachary Broke in the young man roughly though his roughness hid an emotion almost too deep for any wordsGo home and God bless you old friend Zachary thrust his roughened hand across his eyes Without another word a strangely pathetic bowed old figure he turned and shambled off across the field toward the stile into the lane that led to the little thatched cottage that had been his home for so many years He never once looked back For a few seconds Alaric King scote stood looking after him then with a strangely fierce gesture the young fellow flung off his rough tweed coat removed the Cardigan waistcoat that covered the breadth of his chest and turned up the sleeves of his coarse flannel shirt At the foot of the oak lay the wood mans huge axe that was to be the in strument of death that was to cut short the growth of centuries Alaric Kingscote swung the great weapon aloft and the cold starlight ran along the shining steel Like some Viking warrior of oldlike the reembodiment of one of his Saxon forebears Alaric brought down the tool of destruction with a blow that gashed deep into the corrugated skin of the oak The doom of the Kingscote Oak had been proclaimed- As he stood braced up for the second stroke the bulging sinews of his fore arm responding to the generous rise of chest and thigh muscles a curious sound from behind him caused him to swing round with a faint cry Then he lowered the axe with amazing gen tlenessAnother figure had appeared upon the scenethe figure of a woman clad in a cloak of fur that hid the contour of her form- flDamaris The word fell from the young mans lips like a caress II softlyYouThe Kingscote Oak must go It is the last link between me and the work housefor it almost comes to that It was evident that the relationship between these two was something more binding that the ordinary ties existent between casual acquaintances of opposite sex Each seemed to ac cept the situation as inevitable Then the girl went on hurriedly Youll catch cold Alaric dear if you stand still without your coat in this bitter cold Let me hold the lantern for you while you work She snatched up the light He appliedhislamplight threw a warm glow over his weathertanned face and muscular armsFor a time he labored on his whole being concentrated on the performance spacehethe mighty bole of the oak showed how sure had been his strenuous he ceased she broke iato quick speech- It seems incredible she murmured that you a Kingscote of the same race the same blood as ourselves should be forced to toil like this like a common laborer The man came quickly forward and flung his arm around her waist Their lips met in a kiss that could not be mistaken for a mere cousinly salution Damaris Kingscote he said steadily enough let us be frank one with the other What are the facts I am the poor relationthe blot on the family scutcheon of the squire vour father He resents my proximity loathes the very idea of our love therefore he has brought his batteries to bear upon me and mine All that lie could do to ruin me he has done and heaven knows that he had been successful enough The girls eyes brimmed over with tears Alaric was quick to note her ready sympathy and he gripped his axe anew the silence vibrating once more with the ringing cadence of his rhythmic blows- Presently he rested once again Damaris he said did you ever hear the legend that runs in our branch of the family that but for some strange whim of chance I should have been in the squires place today the ruler of the destiny of Kingscotd Glebe Farm From father to son the tradition has been handed down that Nigel Kingscote the cavalier juggled In some unknown way with the laws of successionthat it was not the son of the eldest son who was your own fa thers ancestor but mine that could the truth only be known aright I should be reigning at Kingscote Manor in stead of being what I ama pauper fated to cut down the family tree to raise a pitiful sum of money that must be stood speechless and Alaric once more resumed his heavy task Finally after long and weary toil the end came With a cry to the girl Alaric flung down his axe and leaped backward His hand sought hers Side by side drawn apart from the tottering giant they stood as though spellbound the only spectators of the end of so many hundred years of silent strenuous majesty And even as the mighty tree went shuddering to its tremendous fall a crack as of a pistol shot foreshadowed its overthrow The noise came from the one rotten bough that the tree had possessed a huge limb some halfway up its stem which now detaching first from it parent crashed down at the very feet of the wonder ing couple Nor was that all A metallic tinkle accompanied the crash Damaris was the first to recognize the solution of the puzzle- It was a metal canistera long timestained box of rusted tin closed at both endsa thing of mystery of untold possibilities She picked it up and as she did so one end fell away The canister contained nothing but a stained yellow piece of parchment ipon which something was written in a close and crabbed caligraphy archaic hard to decipher Alaric swung the lantern up from the groundWhat it Damaris he asked the girl read out the following amazing declaration Mayhap a day will come when that which I Nigel Kingscote do set down here in writing in the year of Grace 1647 and do hide in the hole of the Kingscote Oak may be sete out in the cleare light of day And even as Esau of old did sell his birthright so do I Nigel Kingscote head of the house of Kingscote renounce my right and the right of those who come after me to be the true and lawful possess ors of the faire lands of Kingscote Manor Yet not voluntarily doe I this but for the lifo of him my son Know then that I must flee the country Cromwell the regicide hath dcreed that I shall die Therefore have I youngerbrothermy son as his own Thus it may come to pass that the descendants of Nigel my son may be passed over in the right of succession by the descendants of Richard the eldest son of my younger brother James who stands well in the eye of renegadeAndNigel supposed younger son of James Kingscote of Kingscote Manor be really the eldest son of Nigel Kings cote eldest son of Alaric Kingscote thereforeits hereditaments

and I are the usurpers Kingscote Manor is yours and we arepaupers Not paupers dearest but partners answered Alaric and in his eyes there was that which told her how Kingscote love stood wind and weather as steadily as Kingscote Oak withIIclining years were brightened by the generous forgiveness of the undesir able poor relation- A young and sturdy sapling oak now fourishes on the spot where stood the ancient tree a true symbol of the lasting power of Kingscote luck and Kingscote love Answers TO RENOVATE WICKER CHAIRS To renovate a shabby wicker chair first cleanse the wicker thoroughly

to be a friend in need The army moves west to meet the French Adams Loicenberg and Fleischmann lead an ambush defeating a French column Returning to camp Adams is informed that Aimee lies assisted in the escape of a French spy Latour taking him away in her carriage Griesman and cavalry are in pursuit With Fleisch mann Adams impresses a German war automobile and rushes to Aimees aid CHAPTER V I was not familiar with the road over which we were traveling and could not afford to be reckless with its many turns Better that I arrive a few minutes late than not at all Yet the pace the giant automobile made seemed furious to Fleischmann for presently I heard his heavy voice in my ear Gott und Himmell It is too fast There is no danger I shouted back I know the machine as you know your horse- Presently he spoke again We shall be arrested at the chateau They will telephone from headquar tersIt was a disagreeable thought Should a suspicion arise at camp as to my intention the rear guard at the chateau would be ordered by wire to arrest us But Fleischmann rose to the occasion as he did so often in times of trouble Once more I heard his voice at my up and I will break the wire- I glanced upward where at the side of the road two strands of wire were supported on iron poles or on conven ient trees I had seen the signal corps at work and knew the system The upper wire of heavy copper was the through line extending back across the Meuse into Lorraine and thence by established lines south into the Vosges Mountains where it connected with the army of the Crown Prince operating on the southeastern border The other wire or iron was a local running only from the chateau to the headquar ters on the Aisne River It was a daring act deliberately to sever this line of communication Yet we were well into the affair now and must see it through- I slackened speed and Fleischmann sprang from the car The wires were here fastened to a tall poplar He shinned up the tree and taking hold of the local with both hands swung out upon it The slender strand broke clean at the insulator and Fleischmann came down on hands and feet like a cat A moment later we were off again at full speed But forty minutes had passed when I saw far away to the southeast a flut ter of white high In the trees It was the balloon casethe remnants of La Jauneand I knew we were near the end of our run The Infantry guard at the gate recog n zed my uniform and saluted as we swept through the gates At the porte cochere I set the brake leaped from the car and rushed into the chateau my sword clanking ominously behind me There was no change in the appear ance of the rooms save that they were deserted The tables were still littered with papers Blankets lay upon the cots just as they had been thrown back when the sleepers arose It seemed a dead place yet with a great hope in my heart that I might find Aimee there I passed quietly through the carpeted parlors and on to the small family din ingroom beyond which had been re served for the Emperors private apart mentI back the heavy curtain at the doorway A man stood within He had aChairJby IR f Qit5ii 085 ibNSIIColjiile4 byw wore the uniform of a Prussian private of cavalrydark blue with red facings and a small closefitting shako with red pompon But what struck me was his attitude of terrified surprise the whiteness of his face the stare of his small eyes He thrust into his inner pocket a packet of papers that were in his hand his features relaxed in a faint sickly smile and he saluted Monsieur startled me he said in bourgeois French I am arranging these papers which have been left be hindDisguised as he was and with that guilty look I still knew that some where and recently I had seen him in utterly different surroundings But there was no time for thought Where is your ColonelGriesman I asked He is not here He has rrone north since daylight after the spy tC I turned back and met Fleischmann Mademoiselle is not here he said nor is Griesman We must follow them At the outer door I spoke to a guard who sat on a stone bench sunning him self Who is the man within interpreterHis name Jacques Grevoir Ah a Frenchman No a Belgian- I hurried down the steps Fleisch mann was already in the car To the north he said as I took my seat And to the north we went on the wing GrevoirJacques Grevoir The name the face haunted me Then I remembered Jacques the servile gar on at the club Why I had seen him only the night before 1 left Paris And what did he here Griesmans interpreter ehBefore I could pursue the peculiar sit uation further we reached a fork of the road and stopped in a quandary Fleischmann left the car to examine for tracks There was no dearth of these but they covered either road showing that horsemen had gone both directions inI Fleischmann hastened to a small farm house near by and returned leading a SOll looking plough horse Tis no great affair compared with your iron steed he said with a grim smile but I will manage You keep ahead and I will turn to the left The roads run parallel for some miles If you do not find her cut across and join me If I do not I will join you He swung to the saddle and rode off at a smart gait At a small village I obtained infor mation that a party in three carriages had passed at sunrise followed a few hours later by a small body of cavalry So I pushed on growing reckless in my chase and running many risks on the narrow winding road At last I came upon them at the little village of Vartoux Eight horses were picketed near a well Close by six troopers were lounging on the grass beneath a great tree for the afternoon was warm in spite of the lateness of the season Beyond them stood a car riage I recognized the vehicle as Aimees and hardly waiting for the machine to stop rushed toward it There was no one inside I turned to the soldiers Where is your Colonel One of them saluted with scant re spect and pointed to a low stone inn twenty rods up the road Thither I hastened my heart beating fast with anger and hope and fear The room was long with low ceilings and somewhat dark On one side stretched a row of small tables at one HE STAGGERED BACK AND FELL of which sat GrIes man and his orderly busily talking The innkeeper came forward with a smile of welcome I waved him aside and turned to Gries man who looked up with a sneer Ah Herr Adams so you have come for the lady come for Mademoiselle La 1gunay I replied I wish to see her at broke out into a mocking laugh in which the others joined Well so you shall so you shall see her pres ently perhaps But you must know that she Is a prisoner of warmy pris onerShe is to be released I said hotly I heard from the Emperor your report It is said that she aided the spy La tour to escape You will prove It or release her- Griesman took the time deliberately to draw from his pocket a cigar and to light it before he spoke He knew that I was burning with impatience and an ger Leaning back and speaking through a cloud of smoke he made my heart leap with delight There is nothing In the charge so far as it relates to mademoiselle for which I am glad since my regard for her Is verytender I may say He paused to take in the full effect of this thrust I was gritting my teeth hardly able to keep myself within bounds Yet I would hear him to the end I will tell you brieflythat you may report the facts As you know Latour was to be shot at sunrise yesterday morning We decided to wait a day hoping to extract from him valuable information Mademoiselle and her party in three carriages left yesterday morning before dawn La tour who was confined in one of the cellars must have bribed one of the servants and somehow slipped past the guard and entered the forward carriage where he hid beneath a bundle of rugs The guard discovered at breakfast time that Latour was gone but in fear of punishment omitted to report until this morning giving the spy twenty four hours in which to get away Un fortunately for your friends mademoiselle decided to stop en route for a visit with an acquaintance and we had no difficulty in overtaking them Of course the spy is gone but we drew a confession from the servants and had the extreme pleasure of shooting them in stead of Latour Those are the facts and you will pardon my suggestion that you return immediately and communicate them to the Emperor- I return at my own pleasure I replied My orders do not come from you I request you to show me to Mademoiselle Lagunay- I really believe that Griesman under rated me as a fighter How should he have known my training So without fear and as a cat dal lies with a mouse thinking to give me another playful bite he ascended to the last degree of insult fI have told you that mademoiselle isI my prisoner As such she may not see you She is also my companion and as such she does not wish to see you Why monsieur It was but an hour ago that she sat upon my lap all smiles and blushes and I sprang at him with an oath My sword came from its scabbard with an angry hiss Had I followed my first impulse his craven skull had been split that instant But I merely smacked his face with the flat of the blade Say It again if you dare You lie dog Both men jumped to their feet The Colonel had his sabre in the air when his orderly rushed between us Re member the Emperors orders he cried You will lose your commission Let him go He is helpless But Griesman traitor though he proved to be was no coward Thoroughly enraged by my challenge he threw the man aside and came at me with all his two hundred pounds weight I stepped back a little to get room and caught his blade on my guard He swore beneath his breath and struck again with terrific forco Again I stopped him A little less brawn and more skill baby I said derisively You will be wearied We carried the regulation German cavalry sabre rather heavy and slightly curved It was built on the American model and as I met his savage lunges I began to feel at home I fell nat urally into the old position of defense The muscles of wrist and arm came easily into play In memory I saw the great tanbark circle of the academy where we had our daily drills I was again in the ring defending my title of the best swordsman of the class And so without tremor or apprehension I stood there and fought for Aimees sake and for my own life parrying his mighty strokes with little difficulty though the shock as I caught his heavy blade told on my arm so long unused to sword play I made no effort to strike So swift was his attack and so vicious that I preferred the defensive well knowing that eventually he would tire At intervals I taunted him using all the German terms of scorn and con tumely that I could call to mind His anger was terrible Great beads of sweat formed on his brow and rolled down his cheeks His eyes protruded his mouth opened his breath came faster We moved around the room advancing retreating sidestepping neither obtaining any advantage though I was certain that my play was superior to his The innkeeper fled in terror at the first clash and we had the big room to ourselves The orderly stood to one side encouraging his Colonel Now and then we rested momentarily watching each other like hawks then up and at It again back and forth cut and slash thrust and parry until It seemed to me that all my life long I had been doing this thing and that 1 should continue until the end of time At last my anger rose again I twisted his sword to one side and pricked him beneath the arm That lesslightlysword and deliver the lady to me or you shall die traitor answerhesweeping stroke that would have cut ButIhilt and with a strong upward lift and throw put him off his guard And though It was unwise considering my uncertain status with the Emperor 1 was too far gone with hate and with camedowngrazed the side of his head slicing off an ear It bit deep Into the muscles of his thick corded neck It struck the collar bone shattered it and turned in ward And as he staggered back and hisbloodI knew that my work was well done TIle orderly rushed to the door shout ing for help Weary and trembling though I was 1 knelt by Griesmans side and thrusting my hand into the inner pocket of his coat drew out a flat pocketbook and a bundle of letters troopersburstI was not ready for a fight at such odds but I appeared to be In for it At the back of the room a narrow enclosed heavydoorjutting into the room It was the only place for a stand and I made for it on the run the troopers after me Bracing my back against the door I splitdownsplattered over the men behind where at they retreated staring sullenly at heavilybuiltshaven determined faces I knew that I could not hold out against them But that they might not even suspect my fear I shouted at them in derision Come on come on cowards Another made at me sparring cau tiously I caught the point of his sabre with my own and sent it whirling over his head But my arm was tired My sabre turned in my grip and I could but smash him in the face with the flat of my blade He fell back upon the others with a shriek of pain- I was weak from my tremendous exertions A great weariness came over me and for a moment my head swam How could I hope to continue the un even struggle The troopers whispered among themselves and then advanced slowly spreading out to disconcert me I gripped my sword and set my teeth for a final effort Aimees name was on my lips I felt that it was the end At that instant the front door was smashed in and God be thanked upbeforerushed forward bellowing like an anjrrv bullThat he was unarmed made no dif ference to this stouthearted giant That I was In peril was the main upliftedmenace I groaned at thought of what might be and gathered myself to help in the attack But Fleischmann seized one of the heavy oaken chairs whirled it above his head and with a great oath let it fly into their midst There was a confused mixture of legs awl arms and sabres They went down like nine pins and as they scrambled to their feet cursing in rage and pain he came in like a whirlwind and with his huge fists beat them to the floor One arose with ready sabre a challenge on his lips But it was his last word Fleischmann caught him by the neck shook him as he would a rat and sent him whirling against the stone wall He struck it headon with a crack like that of a pistol shot and fell limp with a broken neck The others lay where they had fallen unconscious I descended from my narrow and took my brave friend by the You have saved my life I refugeI shall not forget Outside there was a clatter of Through the open door we saw the ter rifled orderly gallop past bound south I knew that he would spread the alarm and that we must get away as soon as possible I found Aimee in an upper room with her maid as I had expected I called to her and she came to me with a sob Oh my Jaime my lionhearted take me away from that beast she cried and fell fainting in my arms A few minutes later we climbed into our big car Aimee weak and pale upinrugs and blankets Fleischmann and I were by no merlns comfortable in mind for there was the Kaisers terrible an ger to be faced the next day Yet I felt that with the documents in my pockets I could turn the tables and since mademoiselle was innocent of offense things were not so bad after all So we swept on through the moonlight to ward Bethel We did not know that even then the Emperor had learned by telephone from the orderly of Gries mans death and that a detail had been sent to arrest me and upon resistance to shoot me on the spot To be continued next week A WOMAN OPPOSING EXTENSION OF SUFFRAGE TO WOMEN Mrs Caroline F Corbin of Chicago has served notice on Chairman Les

sections and the steadily increasing love for flowers with the impulse to cultivate the small garden found in the city and the rural homes brings into prominence the flower of kings and of favorites and of the humblest menialthe rose It is astonishing what varied types in nature there are of this flower and how worldwide is its distribution Wild roses are found from frigid Lap land to tropic India The rose has the honor of being the first cultivated flower For a long time it was a rare possession but with the general and active love of nature that is a marked characteristic of the present times much his been learned about the cul ture of flowers in general and of the rose in particular and its special re quirements are better understood While verandas and trellises of country homes may have their honey suckles and lilacs may bloom in abundance nothing excels in beauty or fragrance the climbing roses when in their gorgeous and glorious bloom There is no flower beset with more difficulties to grow yet its cultivation is increasing The harder it is to pro duce a beautiful thing the more highly it is prized Most Important Groups Roses of today are of complex lineage for old and new species have been crossed and recrossed until now our cultivated roses are divided into more than thirty general groups The most important of these are Moss Rugosa Hybrid Teas Persian roses and a few June roses among the stiff upright growing sorts of medium to tall growth Polyanthus upright but dwarf and Teas of low or half re cumbent habit The latter by some classifiers are again subdivided into China Bourbon etc of which classes the teas and hybrid teas are the most beautiful They bloom longer than other types hence they have been most widely grown For colder climates the hybrid per petuals are a most valuable class be ing generally hardier and larger bloomers though they do not bloom so THE GOLDEN ETOILE DE LYON long as the teas These have been ob tained by crossing the French and Da mask roses with the China rose Roses are propagated by cuttings by budding grafting and layering All varieties will not root equally well from cuttings and layers and budding is largely done The budding roses have to be care fully watched for being started on strong brier and Manetti roots they are quite apt to throw out shoots from their own roots which are and soon overcome and run out the bud They may be readily discerned when they do come out for leaves and wood are of a different character from of the bud the wood being covered with fine prickly spines the leaves being seven in number of three serrations instead of five as in most of the budded kinds Budded roses should be planted deep so the bud Is at least three inches below surface of the soil when there will fop less trouble from the suckers roots should be examined and any eyes or buds that are starting upon them should be carefully taken out Roses must have good air and plenty exposedhence stagnantTheyto too violent winds for the foliage whippingSometimes of a clump of trees is sought but unless the plants are set well away them they will be roufottior plant by the roots of the fre To take advantage of this kind of protection the roses should be set twentyfive feet further away from the trees than the latters height The protection of buildings should be avoided for so completely do these stop the circulation of air that mildew and blights follow from sheltered loca tions of this character There are however exceptions to this rule for sometimes in an elevated position there will be suitable circulation of air even close to a building depends largely upon the prevailing winds and the exposure of the locality OF The hot noonday sun is very hard upon the blossoms and if the rose bed could be so located as to get a shadow cast from a clump of trees for two hours after noon such a location would be pleasure to be derived from flowers is to have them for the freest possible use and to give to friends and others otherwise not be able to have The soil needs to be suited and properly prepared For hybrid per petuals a heavy soil is better one that comIa cool moist soil and for this reason the heavier type is better carrying as it does a large amount of moisture and being also a little lower in temperature THE OLD FASHIONED MARY WASHINGTON ROSE vigorous their that and that the The from food This THE who may them well The teas and teas will do better in a little lighter soil of the loam type but for either class there must be perfect drainage Have Your Soil Rich The soil can hardly be made too rich Well composted manure should be worked down deep into the bottom of the bed or of the rows if they are not in the latter form This should be cow manure as that Is of a cooler nature and better suited to the requirements of the plant Horse manure is too heating and will injure the roots if used in large quantities Liquid manure used in a diluted form once a week after the buds are formed will be of great value in getting the finest blooms and the longest bud develop ment Good wood dirt is excellent Fine strong plants set while entire ly dormant should give a satisfactory quantity of flowers the first summer In planting the tops should be cut down to two or three buds Many fail at this point to prune close enough On well grown plants there is usually too much wood left The desire to obtain blossoms the first sum mer is so great that frequently the en tire top is left to grog which is too much for the root to support The reverse should be done for by close pruning the few buds left will develop into strong vigorous shoots that will produce buds and only by this practice can they be surely ob tained A good general rule to follow in pruning is to cut severely all teas hy brid teas and kinds that do not make strong growth and to cut all strong growing kinds moderately The more luxuriant a bush grows the less prun ing will be required but the weakest growing kinds require the severest florists have their own way of propagating roses amateurs usually get a start of everblooming roses either from cuttings of the blooming wood or from cuttings of mature wood rooted during winter while in a semidormant THE QUEEN BEATRICEONE NEWEST ROSES development hybrid condition The latter is the surest method for the inexperienced flower grower How to Grow Cuttings cuttingsMakebranch that is coming into bloom or is just through blooming Cut just be low an eye leaving a small heel or strip of bark attached Trim off the lower set of leaves even with the wood Leave the end leaf entire and trim the leaf or two cutjtingsstantly damp until they root which should be in from 3 to 4 weeks Tea root easily by this method To root from semidormant wood About the beginning of autumn September in the North October in the South take your cuttings Several may be made from one cane as pretty well ripened wood roots after this method as well as any Make the cut tings about 6 inches long Cut just be low an eye making a slanting cut and trim off the lower leaves Now dig a hole by the parent bush Put a handful of sand at the bottom if you have it and put in your cuttings setting them one inch apart and firming the earth very solidly about them Only about an inch of the upper stem should project above the ground Put a glass fruit jar over the cuttings sinking the jar well into the ground then bank up the earth a couple of inches around the can Let the cut tings jar and all rigidly alone until spring is well advanced It will be found then that nearly every cutting has rooted This plan seems to be a success wherever it is tried North South East or West Nearly all hybrid teas and perpetuals root well in this way So do moss memorial and ram bler roses greatesttrialswith in the insects that persistently at tack them and of which there are many One of the first in the early summer is the green fly or aphis How to Kill the Aphis This will be discovered on the tips of the bushes and also upon the buds and about their stems The insects suck the sap from these tender parts and greatly check the growth and de velopment of the buds Dusting with hellebore will keep them in check or they may be sprayed with one pound of caustic potash whale oil soap dis solved in eight gallons of water This is easy work One of these insects will be the progenitor of over 5000 million descend ants at the end of five generations prompttreatment portantThe roller is another enemy that upontheends caterpillarsthefeed upon the foliage and also upon the buds These should be hand picked or crushed as it is difficult to reach them after they have protected by the folding of the leaves themselvesII The rose bug or rose small brown beetle that A

generally in light or sandy land they are not often troublesome in heavy soil Paris green and other poisons do not have much effect upon them Arsenate of lead when used in strong solutions two and a half ounces to a gallon will keep them quite well in check but this material discolors the foliage In the early morning when the bugs are somewhat dormant they may be picked off by hand or knocked into a pan of kerosene held underneath the branches This is a most difficult pest to control It will also attack grapes and other fruits The rose slug is the larva of the sawfly which comes out of the ground in May The female deposits eggs In cuts made in the leaves The eggs hatch in about twelve days after they are laidThey are a softbodied insect similar to the snail and may be readily destroyed by dusting with hellebore or by the whale oil soap spray They soon seriously injure the foliage if not kept in check Another very troublesome insect and enemy of the rose is the rose hopper or thrips These are small white flies that come in swarms and they work mainly on the under side of the leaves A CUTTING READY TO PLANT The white grub is another parasite upon roses the list of which is becom ing somewhat formidable This grub comes from eggs deposited in the ground by the June bug or May beetle After pairing the male dies when the female bores down in the soil de positing her eggs from six to eight inches deep The small white grubs which are hatched from these live upon the grass roots or the roots of other plantsIn up the soil for the rose bed sods frequently put in the bottom to decompose have these grubs in them and as they live in the grub form for three years they frequently eat the roots of the roses causing them to wither and often to die On the first discovery of a wilting plant the soil should be dug over to find the grubs Toads Are Friends There are no better friends to have in the garden than the toads If they could be protected and encouraged to live there they would eradicate many of the grubs and cutworms that do so much damage to garden plants The great enemy of the toad is the small boy Bands of schoolboys have been known to go out and in a single day kill as many as 300 of these use ful animals The boys regard this as innocent sport being untaught and not knowing that the toad is a most valua ble insect destroyer- To the lovers of the rose
