Democratic party In this issue of the Register ap pears the announcement for Con press of the Hon Harvey Helm of Lincoln county Mr Helm is well known tp the people of this county as the man to whom they Rave their allegiance in the campaign two year ago which as all reniem her was won by Congressman Gil btrt of Shelby Though he went into the convention that year with the largest nuinber of instructed votes by reaon of the long dead lock arid the action of the commit tee which trifk edJiim out of the vote of G eity he was de feated In float convention leis selection was the choice of the voters of the district as evidenced bv the preponderating number of instruc ted votes in his favor But when victory was taken from his grasp by the coalitiou of his opponents he accepted defeat with becoming grace and is therefore according to our view the logical candidate for the honor to day We supported Mr Helm in his previous race and liaving since that time had no reason to change our opinion are for him again He is in the race solely because he thinks he can win and we shall as sist linn to the best of our ability The contest betweettxTie andidates will bea friendly one as all

come to this county toI claim his own And we have little doubt that he will be here accorded the sine enthusiastic support that he received two years ago The people ot this county know Mr Helm as they

one titled woman whose wealth and position have not proved sufficient to blind her to conditions which surround less for tunate men and women She is the Countess of Warwick long the reigning beauty of King Edwards court and one of the most famous women in two continents The Countess has recently come in to prominence through her paruipa tion in the English elections and is a strong advocate and supporter of Will Thorne candidate of the dock la borers for a seat in the House of Com mons The Countess strongly sup ports the contention of the laboring element for a labor party in parliament and gowned in the most bewitching of Parisian frocks and in a red automo bile she has been stirring things up pretty lively in the fortyfive parliamentary districts in which representatives of organized labor were running for the House of Commons SENT DELEGATION TO AMERICA This very democratic Countess re cently sent a delegation of twentyfive women to the United States to study labor conditions hero Each was in trusted with a different mission One visited stenographers and typewriters another went to tailor shops and still another to the factories where young men and women are employed and the entire labor field was adequately coy ered The Countess defrayed all expenses of the trip and is now using the material which her delegation brought back to her for speeches toI the laboring classes Not long ago the Countess addressed a tremendous crowd of workmen Her stage was a tradesmans wagon and hundreds of workmen went without their dinners in order to hear her speech She was given a great ova tion called the men comrades and THE COUNTESS OF WARWICK friends and urged them to strain every effort to get a labor party in parliamentYou are the empire de clared the Countess and this with a succession of spirited assertions she made were lustily cheered by the la boring men The Countess of Warwick is one of Englands most famous women Be fore the succession of her husband to the earldom she was Lady Brooke and gained the nickname of Babbling Brooke for having told some t ngs In connection with the famous bac carat party at Tranby Croft which proved one of the most sensational news stories of the year The Prince of Wales now King Edward VII was a member of the party and a subse quent witness in the case TO TEACH DAIRYING AND CHICKEN GROWTH In the past few years the Countess of Warwick has devoted nearly her entire time to philanthropic and char ity work She once managed a linen and lace store but the venture proved unsuccessful Later she founded a school and dairy work and poultry keeping for young girls a home for crippled children and a technical ICbool CANDIED FLOWERS England Has Begun Strange De mands for Sugared Blossoms From the United States One of the latest developments of luxury is said to be the candying of fragrant flowers The notion is not altogether new for violets have long been made Into confections for the palate as well as into boquets for the olfactory organs At any rate it seems that the fash Ion has acquired a new Impetus of late and a candied violet is coming to be regarded as an acceptable bonne bouche to be presented to a lady There is also it is said a demand for sugared rose petals which is being catered to by some enterprising artists in sugar It can hardly be pretended that flowers made into sweets are of any medicinal efficacy though damask rose leaves have long held a recog nized place in the materia medica Whether the violet has any thera peutic qualities does not appear though the leaves not the flower have just now some reputationouts- ide the medical facultyas a cure for cancer The best that can be hoped for if flowers are to be eaten as well as to be seen and smelled is that they may in all cases prove to be innocuous It is a nice question whether the perfume is always a safe guidePerhaps the modern craze is after all only a form of luxury A candied violet or a dish of rose leaves cun ningly prepared for the tea table could not possibly enter into the category of cheap sweets for the millions and it is understood that the sugar trust is not interested BREAKS BY CONGRESS Peculiar Mistakes Due to Tremen dous Amount of Work Transacted Just Before Adjournment In the hurry and bustle of get away day in Congress a few errors slipped in to upset the calculations of party leaders One of these was the signing of the agricultural appropri ation bill by the President before that measure contained the signature of the Speaker of the House of Representa tives Of course this oversight was corrected but the question then arose as to the importance of having the bill signed by the Speaker and the Vice President Their signatures merely certify that the bill has passed their respective houses the important fact being that they have been passed by the House and Senate For this rea son it is not regarded as being abso lutely indispensable that a bill should be signed by the presiding officer of the House All that is necessary is to establish the fact that it has been so passedAnother break was the presiden tial approval of the sundry civil bill containing an item appropriating 3000000 for a site for a new de partmental building in Washington This item had been dropped out of the bill in conference but the enrollment clerks failed to notice the omission and so included this item in the copy of the bill laid before the President for his signature When the error was discovered a resolution was adopted by both houses of Congress repealing the feature of the bill making the 3000000 appropriation- It is not strange that these mis takes occur as all of the employes of both the Senate and House during the last few days of Congress have an enormous amount of work shoved upon them so that when Congress actually adjourns many of them are ready to take to their beds for several days in order to recuperates CANADIAN RECIPROCITY Northern Sister Would Like Such Arrangement But is Waiting Move by This Country A letter from Ottawa Canada states that the question of reciprocrity between Canada and the Unite States is by no means dead as was clearly shown by the recent debate on the Canadian budget in a number of speeches which while they admitted that the United States did not appear to care for reciprocity it would if it could be brought about on mutually advantageous terms oe a good thing for both sides of the line Many of the crown ministers and even Sir Wil frid Laurier himself the premier and described in England as the foremost statesman in the British Empire are favorable to CanadianAmerican reciprocity if it can be had Sir Richard Cartwright minister of trade and commerce said recenuy that there could be no better British policy than to do everything possible to encourage good relations with the United States Senator Lougheed the conservative leader in the Senate stated that he thought no higher work could be found by King Edward than to promote the good relations of the two peoples and- o bind more closely together the two AngloSaxon nations He knew no happier way of strengthening the bond between the AngloSaxon peoples on the North American Continent than for the King and Queen to visit the shores of North America at the pres ent time If reciprocity is not visibly to the front today it is because public opinion in Canada reg rds reciprocity as unattainable and the position of the antireciprocity men who are for the moment supreme as unassailable Hence and for no other reason reciprocity sentiment is put on the shelf until called for again and an ostentatious appearance of indifference is manifested in Canada which will be stiffly maintained as long as the United States government makes no forward movement that public opinion in the Dominion can accept as sincere and based on a spirit of reasonableness and fair play To those who are able to read be tween the lines the announcement of the finance minister that the changes to be made in the Canadian tariff when revision takes pace next session must depend upon such new conditions as may have occurred is obviously meant for the people at Washington who stand in the way of reciprocity and those in London who have blocked a mutual preference between the mother country and Canada It is aI warning and may mean much or little as circumstances or conditions dictate A GROCERY IN CONGRESS REPRESENTATIVE MANN PLAYS SALESMAN AND DRUGGIST TO UNMASK FRAUDS Short Weight and Fraudulent Foods the Lure of Many Department Stores and Mail Order Houses Honest Dealers Handicapped by DeceptionsWhen pure food bill was before the House of Representatives a few weeks ago intense interest was dis played by the members of that body in a grocery store established by Representative Mann of Illinois Mr Mann had been given a special privi lege by the House committee having the bill In charge to demonstrate the manner in which the ordinary food REPRESENTATIVE MANN products of the country are adulter ated and how the consumer is de frauded The space in front of the speakers desk resembled a small section of a delicatessen store and a corner grocery with cereals jams jellies tins of peas tomatoes corn prepared spices bottles of whiskey and wine imnorted sausages brandied cherries and other edibles and drink ables scattered over two tables Representative Mann proceeded to demonstrate to the House through these various food products the necessity for a national pure food law One of the first articles taken up by the Congressman was the ordinary condimentpepperwhich to the lay mind is considered too cheap for any manufacturer to spend time in adul terating He read circulars from nu merous concerns offering for sale a certain grade of adulterant which could be used to produce pepper or almost any other of the spices with some slight modification As he scat tered a package of this over his desk the members in the vicinity started back in order to avoid the usual sneez ing which follows the inhalation of a small quantity of pepper But they were reassured by the groceryman that it was not harmful for while it was called pepper it was nothing but ground olive pits He convulsed the House when he read the price list of adulterants showing that they were offered to the trade for 420 a ton in fiveton lots and that at that rate they were guaranteed to make the finest black pepper which as everyone knows is sold by the ounce He made the statement that even the pepper berry itself was adulterated by a cleverly contrived manufacture of tap ioco colored with lamp black Possibly the most striking demon stration of the afternoon was one with a bottle of red cherries These cher ries it was explained were picked green and that after being bleached out white by the use of a powerful acid had been colored the brilliant red by the use of coal tar dyea deadly poison if used in large quanti ties Representative Mann dipped a piece of white cloth in the juice of these cherries and it partook of a brilliant red as though it had just come from a dyers Olive oil explained Mr Mann is a product which is in most cases adul terated In many instances the coun terfeit is merely American cotton seed oila wholesome and satisfactory dressing for salad but it costs about r as much as real olive oil and the American buyer certainly does not care to purchase a dressing for four times its actual worth- HIVELESS HONEY One of the freak exibits was a bottle of honey which in order to complete the assurance of the buyer that the article was genuine contained as if by accident the body of a real bee yet the whole mess was pure and simple glucose and had never been near a hive much less a comb The hive probably was a ten story fac tory in one of the large cities A bottle of Freezine was exhibited by Mr Mann who explained that this remarkable article was guaranteed to preserve meat from the action of the air and stop decay While he admitted that it would stop the action of nature on meats he claimed that the preservative itself was actually poison ous containing sulphide of soda with red coal tar dye and could not be used safely upon human food The public is unwittingly defrauded to a great extent through short weight and short measure in package goods explained Mr Mann and he insisted that the manufacturers should be com pelled to state on the label the quan tity contained in the bottle or carton In line with this was a dramatic demonstration when the Chicago pure food expert held up before the House a i CoryrShYed t8g4By Harter L Broers Synopsis of preceding chapters at end of this Installment bottle supposed to contain a quart of vinegar which when poured into a large graduate did not nearly reach the quart mark thereonin fact was three inches below it Raisins currants and numerous other articles of food are apparently put up in pound packages and so the buyer considers but in fact few of those on the market really con tain a full pound- DEPARTMENT STORE BARGAINS It is the department stores and mail order houses said the demon strator which make profit from short weight cans and undersized bottles We are seeking to protect the legiti mate grocery and the honest canner from men who are willing to make money by depriving the people of things they think they are getting All that we urge is that an approx imate weight or measure may be put upon each one of these packages and then if the public chooses to buy a smaller package at a smaller price it may do so but the manufacturers and dealers must not any longer de ceive the people as to how much they are buying BREAKFAST FOODS A DELUSION On the tables where Mr Mann ably but silently assisted by Mr Stevens of Minnesota acted now as grocery man now as druggist and now as bartender there were a dozen or more packages of breakfast foods with their familiar labels A reference to table weights and skillful dropping of pack ages upon a balance scale In front of him enabled Mr Mann to show that in a great many cases the public paid full price for an abnormal amount of pasteboard box In scarce any case did the prepared food weigh twice as much as the box and in many in stances food and package were in near ly equal proportion Everybody knew as Mr Mann stated that 25 per cent of all the coffee used in the United States is sold as a mixture of Java and Mocha He was prepared to show from official FOLLOWED WRINKLED WOMAN figures that white we used last year more that a billion pounds of coffee and while about 250000000 pounds were supposed to be Mocha and Java there were actually imported into this country last year only a fraction over 2000000 pounds of Mocha and 10000 000 pounds of Java or approximately less than 13000000 pounds or only 5 per cent of the popular blend It is staggering to know 95 per cent of the people who think they drink Mocha and Java every day have been de ceived and yet the facts seem to be rather plain Figures like these however al though ordinarily impressive and con vincing did not attract so much at tention in the House the members were so absorbed in the prac tical demonstration of the extent to which fraudulent manufacturers of food products have been willing to go In the way of swindling thefpubllc Praise New YorkerTo tell the truth we are proud of this hotel Chicagoan Well I cant blame you altogether old man I honestly think myself that its the finest between Chicago and London CHAPTER XI For a time Sir Nigel was very moody and downcast with bent brows and eyes upon the pommel of his saddle Edricson Ford and Terlake rode behind him The four rode alone for the archers had passed a curve in the road though Al clumpclumpglimpse of the sparkle of steel through the tangle of leafless branches Hide by my side I entreat of you said the knight reining in his steed that they might come abreast of him For since it hath pleased you to fol low me to the wars it were well that you should know how you may best serve me 1 doubt not Terlake that you will show yourself a worthy son of a valiant fa youEdricsontime house from which all men know that you are sprung And first I would have you bear very steadfastly in mind that our setting forth is by no means for the purpose of gaining spoil or exacting ran som though it may well happen that such may come to us also We go to France and from thence I trust to Spain in humble search of a field in which we may win advancement and perchance some small share of glory But what is this among the trees It is a shrine of Our Ladyft sail Terlake and a blind beggar who lives by the alms of those who worship there A shrine cried the knight Then let us put up an orison And pulling off his cap and clasping his hands he chanted in a shrill voice Benedictus dominus Deus meus qui docet manus meas ad proelium ct digitos meos ad bellum A strange figure he seemed to hugehorsewintry sun shimmering upon his bald head It is a noble prayer he remarked putting on his hat again and it was taught to me by the noble Chandos youfatherruth upon you seeing that I am myself like one who looks through a horn window while his neighbors have the clear crystal Yet by St Paul there is a long stride between the man who bath a horn casement and him who is walled in on every hand Alas fair sir cried the blind man I have not seen the blessed blue of hea ven this twoscore years since a levin flash burned the sight out of my head You have been blind to much that is goodly and fair quoth Sir Nigel but you have also been spared much that is sorry and foul But by St Paul we must on or our Company will think that they have lost their captain somewhat early in the venture Throw the man my purse Edricson and let us go Alleyne lingering behind bethought him of the Lady Lorings counsel and reduced the noble gift which the knight had so freely bestowed to a single which beggar with many mumbled blessings thrust away into his wallet Then spurring his steed young squire rode at the top of his speed after his companions and overtook them just at spot where the trees fringe off into moor anu the straggling hamlet of Hordle lies scattered on either side of the winding and deeply rutted track The throughthesquires closed up upon them they heard followedbythe ranks of the archers Another minute brought them up with the rearguard where every man marched with his beard on his shoulder and a face which was agrin with merriment By the side of the column walked a huge redheaded with his hands thrown out in argument and expostulation while close at his heels followed a little wrinkled woman who poured forth a shrill volley thwackfrombeenbeating produceI trust Aylward said Sir Nigel gravely as he rode up that this doth not mean that any violence hath been offered to women If such a thing happened I tell you that the man shall hang though he were the best archer that ever wore brassart Nay my fair lord Aylward answered with a grin it is violence which is offered to a man He comes from Hordle and this is his mother who hath come forth to welcome him You rammucky lurden she was howl ing with a blow between each catch of bet breath you shammocking yaping overlong goodfornaught I will teach myfaithlookintbackgo to France as an archer to give blow3 and to take them To France quotha cried the old dame Bide here with me and I shall warrant you more blows than you are like to get in France If blows be what you seek you need not go further than Ilordle By my hilt the good dame speaks truth said Aylward It seems to be the very home of them What have you to say you clean shaved galleybagger cried the fiery dame turning upon the archer Can 1 not speak with my own son but you must let your tongue clack A soldier quotha and never a hair on his face I have seen a better soldier with pap for food and swaddlingclothes for harness Stand to it Aylward cried the archers amid a fresh burst of laughter bigJohnyears and cannot abide to be thwarted It is kindly and homely to me to hear Let voice and to feel that she is behind me But I must leave you now mother for the way is overrough for your feet gownifI will bring Jinny a silver penny so goodbye to you and God have you in his keeping Whipping up the little woman he lifted her lightly to his lips CLOSE AT HIS HEELS A LITTLE because the the the the bowman and then taking his place in the rank again marched on with the laughing Corn panyThat was ever his way she cried appealing to Sir Nigel who reined up his horse and listened with the gravest cour tesy He would jog on his own road for all that I could do to change him First be must be a monk forsooth and all because a wench was wise enough to turn her back on him Then he joins a ras cally crew and must needs trapse off to the wars and me with no one to bait the fires if I be out or tend the cow if I be home Yet I have been a good mother to him Three hazel switches a day have I broke across his shoulders and he takes no more notice than you have seen him today Doubt not that he will come back to you both safe and prosperous my fair dame quoth Sir Nigel Meanwhile it grieves me that as I have already given my purse to a beggar up the road I Nay my lord said Alleyne I still hove some moneys remaining Then I pray you to give them to this very worthy woman He cantered on as he spoke while Alleyne having dispensed two more pence left the old dame stand ing by the furthest cottage of Hordlo with her shrill voice raised in blessings revilingsThat slept at St Leonards in the great monastic barns j and spicarium ground well known both to Alleyne and to John for they were almost within sight of they Abbey of Beaulieu At early dawn they passed across the broad sluggish reedgirt streammen horses and baggage in the flat ferry bargesand so journeyed on through the fresh morning air past Ex bury to Lepe Topping the heathy down they came of a sudden full in sight of the old seaport Some way out from the town a line of pessoners creyers and other small craft were rolling lazily on the gentle swell Further out still lay a great merchant ship highended deep waisted painted of a canary yellow and towering above the fishing boats like a swan among ducklings By St Paul said the knight our good merchant of Southhampton hath not played us false for methiuks I can see our ship down yonder He said that she would be of great size and of a yellow shade Aylwardshecarry as many men as there are pips in a pomegranateIt remarked Terlake for methinks my fair lord that we are not the only ones who are waiting a passage to Gascony Mine eye catches at times yonderhousesShipmans jacket or the gaberdine of a burgherI also see it said Alleyne shad ing his eyes with his hand And I can see menatarms in yonder boats which ply betwixt the vessel and the shore But methinks that we are very welcome here for already they come forth to meet A tumultuous crowd of fishermen citizens and women had indeed swarmed approachedthemtheir hands and dancing with joy as though a great fear had been rolled back from their minds At their head rode a very large and solemn man with a long chin and drooping lip He wore a fur tippet round his neck and a heavy gold chain over it with a medallion which dangled in front of him Welcome most puissant and noble lord he cried doffing his bonnet You see in me the mayor and chief magistrate LepeImore so as you are come at a moment when we are sore put to it for defence Ha cried Sir Nigel pricking up his earsYes my lord for the town being very ancient and the walls as old as the town it follows that they are very ancient too But there is a certain villlanous and blood thirsty Norman pirate knight Tetenoire who with a Genoan called Tito Caracci commonly known as Spadebeard hath been a mighty scourge upon these coasts Indeed my lord they are very cruel and blackhearted men graceless and ruthless They have come in two great galleys with two banks of oars on either side and great store of engines of war and of menatarms At Weymouth and at Portland they have murdered and ravished Yesterday morning they were at Cowes and we saw the smoke from the burning crofts Today they lie at their ease near Freshwater and we fear much lest they come upon us and do us a mis chief We cannot tarry said Sir Nigel riding toward the town with the mayor upon his left side the Prince awaits us at Bordeaux and we may not be behind the general muster Yet I will promise you that on our way we shall find time to pass Freshwater and to prevail upon these rovers to leave you in peace We are much beholden to you tiled the mayor But I cannot see my lord how without a warship you may venture against these men With your archers however you might well hold the town and do them great scath if they attempt to land There is a very proper cog out you der said Sir Nigel it would be a very strange thing if any ship were not a war ship when it had such men as these upon her decks Certes we shall do as I say and that no later than this very day My lord said a roughhaired dark faced man who walked by the knights other stirrup with his head sloix1 to catch nil that he was saying by your leave I have no doubt that you are skilledI in land fighting and the lances but by my soul you will find it another thing upon the sea I am master shipman of this yellow cog and my name is Goodwin Hawtayne I have sailed since I was as high as this staff and I have fought against these Normans and against the Genoese as well as the Scotch the Bretons the Spanish ana the Moors I tell you sir that my ship is over light and overfrail for such work and it will but end in our having our throats cut or being sold as slaves to the Barbary heathen I also have experienced one or two gentle and honorable ventures upon the sea quoth Sir Nigel and I am right blithe to have so fair a task before us I think good mastershipman that you and I may win great honor in this matter and I can see very readily that you are a brave and stout man wI like it not said the other stur dily In Gods name I like it not And yet Goodwin Hawtayne is not the man to stand back when his fellows are for pressing forward By my soul be it sink or swim I shall turn her beak into Freshwater Bay and if good Master Witherton of Southampton like not my handling of his ship then he may find another master The throng moved on until at the very gate it was brought to a stand by a wondrously stout man who came darting forth from the town with rage in every faceHow he roared in a voice like a bull How now Sir Mayor How of the clams and the scallops By our Lady my sweet Sir Oliver cried the mayor I have had so much to think of with these wicked villians so close upon us that it had quite gone out of my head Nay Sir Oliver Sir Oliver cried Sir Nigel laughing Let your anger be appeased since instead of this dish you come upon an old friend and comrade By St Martin of Tours shouted the fat knight bis wrath all changed in an Instant to joy if it is not my dear little game rooster of the Garonne Ah my sweet coz I am right glad to see you What days we have seen together The dams and scallops shall be ready within the hour the mayor answered I had asked Sir Oliver Buttesthorn to do my humble board the honor to partake at it of the dainty upon which we take some little pride but in sooth this alarm of pirates hath cast such a shadow on my wits that I am like one distrait But I trust Sir Nigel that you will IBO par take of nonemeat with meT I have overmuch to do Kir Nigel answered for we must be aboard horse and man as early as we may How many do yon muster Sir Oliver Threeandforty Threeandforty I shall have work forever man of them ere the son set It to my Intention if It seems good to you to try a venture against these Norman and Genoese rovers CHAPTER XII Leaving the lusty knight and the Mayor of Lepe Sir Nuel led the Company straight down to the waters edge where long lines of flat lighters SWIftly bore them to their vessel Horse after horse was slung by main force up from the after kicking and plunging is empty air was drooped into the deep waist of the yellow co g where rows of stalls stood ready for their safe keeping Englishmen in those days were skilled and prompt in such matters for it was not long before that Edward had embarked as many as fifty thousand men in the port of Orwell with their horses and their baggage all in the space of fourand twenty hours So urgent was Sir Nigel on the shore and so prompt was Goodwin Uawtayne on the cog that Sir Oliver Buttesthorn had scarce swallowed his last scallop ere the peal of trumpet and clang of naker announced that all was ready and the anchor drawn In the last boat which left the shore the two com manders sat together in the sheets a strange contrast to one another while under the feet of the rowers was a litter of huge stones which Sir Nigel had ordered to be carried to the cog These once aboard the ship set her broad main sail the breeze blew the sails bellied over heeled the portly vessel and away she plunged through the smooth blue St Paul said Sir Nigel gayly as he stood upon the poop and looked on either side of him it is a land which is very well worth fighting fo it were pity to go to France for what may be had at home You may bring my harness from below he continued to his squires and also I pray youbring up Sir Olivers and we shall don it here Ye may then see to your own gear for this day you will I hope make a very honorable en trance into the field of chivalry and prove yourselves to be very worthy and valiant squires And now Sir Oliver as to our dispositions would it please you that I youYou By Our Lady Iam no chicken but I cannot claim to know as much of war as the squire of Sir Walter Manny Settle the matter to your own liking theifotepartFor foreguard I shall give you your own forty men with twoscore archers Two score men with my own menatarms and squires will serve as a poopguard Ten archers with thirty shipmen under the master may hold the waist while ten lie aloft with stones and arbalests Meanwhile there had been bustle and preparation in all parts of the great vessel The archers stood in groups about the decks newstringing their bows and testing that they were firm at the nocks Among them moed Aylward and other of the older soldiers with a few whispered words of precept and of warning there Stand to it my hearts of gold said the old bowman as he passed from knot to knot By my hilt we are in luck this journey But it is time that we took our order for methinks that between the Needle rocks and the Alum cliffs yonder I can catch a glimpse of the topmasts of the galleys Hewett Cook Johnson Cunningham your men are of the poop guard Thornbury Walters Hackett Baddlesmere you are with Sir Oliver on the forecastle Simon you bide with your lords banner but ten men must go and promptly the men took their places lying flat upon their faces on the deck for such was Sir Nigels order Near the prow was planted Sir Olivers spear with his armsa boars head Stiles upon a field of gold Close by the stern stood Black Simon with the pennon of HORDLB JOHN THE ARM SLOWLY the house of Loring In the waist gath eied the Southampton mariners hairy and burly men with their jerkins thrown off their waists braced tight swords mallets and poleaxes in their hands Their leader Goodwin Hawtayne stood upon the poop and talked with Sir Nigel casting his eye up sometimes at the swelling sail and then glancing back at the two seamen who held the tiller Pass the word said Sir Nigel that no man shall stand to arms or draw his bowstring until my trumpeter shall sound It would be well that we should seem to be a merchantship from South ampton and appear to flee from them We shall see them anon said the mastershipman Ha said I not sot There they lie the watersnakes in Freshwater Bay and mark the reek of smoke from yonder point where they have been at their devils work See how their shallops pull from the land They have seen us and called their men aboard Now they draw upon the anchor See them like ants upon the forecastle They stoop and heave like handy ship men But my fair lord these are iu niefs I doubt but we have taken in band more than we can do Each of these ships is a galeas and of the largest and swiftest make I would I had your eyes said Sir Nigel blinking at the pirate galleys IItrustfrom our meeting with them It would be well to pass the word that we should ndther give or take quarter this day The yellow cog had now shot out from the narrow waters of the Solent and was plunging and rolling on the long heave of the open channel The wind blew freshly from the east with a very keen edge to it and the great sail bellied roundly out laying the vessel over until the water hissed beneath her lee bul warks Broad i j ungainly she floun dered from wave to wave her round bows deep into the blue and sending the white flakes of foam in a spatter over her decks On her Ill board quarter lay the two dark galleys which had already hoisted sail and were shooting out from Bay in swift pursuit their line of oars giving them a vantage which could not fail to bring them up with any vessel which trusted to sails alone High and bluff the English cog long black and swift the pirate galleys like two fierce lean which have seen a lordly and unsuspecting stag walk past their lair Shall we turn my fair ior or srinll tershipmnnlllrjnNay we must carryon and play the part of the helpless merchant But your pennons They will see that we have two knights with us Yet it would not he to a knights honor or good name to lower his pennon Let them he and they will think that we are a wine ship for Gascony or that we bear the woolbales of some mercer of the Staple Ma foi but they are very swift They swoop upon us like two goshawks on a heron Is there not some symbol or device upon their saiisT That on the right said Edricson appears to have the head of an Ethiop upon it Tis the badge of Tetenoire the Norman cried a seamanmariner I have seen it before when he harried us ar Winchelsca He is a wondrous large and strong man with no ruth for man woman or beast They say that he hath the strength of six and certes he haUl the crimes of six upon his soul By St Paul said Sir Nigel what is that upon the other galley It is the red cross of Genoa This Spadebeard is a very noted captain and it is his boast that there are no seamen and no archers in the world who can compare with those who seri the Doge Boccauegra That we shall prove said Goodwin Hawtayne They will lay us aboard on either quarter my lord cried the master See how they stretch out from each other The Norman hath a mangonel or a trabuch upon the forecastle See they bend to the levers They are about to loose it yourthreerot do something t6 hinder their aim Methinks they are within long arrow flightSeventeen score paces said the archer running his eye backward and forwardJJY my ten fingerbones it would be a strange thing if we could not notch a mark at that distance Here LongYiIliamsthey have English bowmen to deal with The three archers named stood at tho further end of the poop balancing them selves with feet widely spread and bows drawn until the heads of the clothyard arrows were level with the centre of the stave You are the surer Watkin said Aylward by them with shaft upon string Do you take the rogue with the red coif You two bring down the man with the headpiece and I will hold myself ready if you miss Ma foi they are about to loose her Shoot mes garcons or you will be too late awayfromtwo of their number to discharge it steadyingon the spoonshaped end of the long wooden lever The other held the loop of the rope which would lease the catch and send the nn wieldly missile hurtling through the air So for an instant they showing hard and clear against the white sail behind them The next redcap had fallen across the stone with an arrow between his ribs and the other struck in the leg and in the throat was writhing and splut tering upon the ground As he toppled backward he had loosed the spring and the huge beam of wood swinging round with tremendous force cast the corpse of his comrade so close to the English ship that its mangled and distorted limbs grazed her very stern As to the stone it glanced off obliquely and fell midway between the vessels A roar of cheering and of laughter broke from the rough archers and seamen at the sight answered FORCED HUGE PIRATES BACK dipping rollers Freshwater double wolves standing by pursuersLiewith his left hand They will learn wisdom They are bringing forward shield and mantlet We shall have some pebbles about our ears ere long The three vessels had been sweeping swiftly westward the cog still well lo thE front although the galleys were drawing in upon either quarter To the left was a hard skyline unbroken by a sail Alleyne stood by the tiller looking backwards the fresh wind full in his teethWhat was that he asked as a hiss ing sharpdrawn voice seemed to whisper in his ear The steersman smiled and pointed with his foot to where a short heavy crossbow quarrel stuck quivering in the boards At the same instant the man tumbled forward upon his knees and lay lifeless upon the deck the bloodstained feather of a second bolt jutting out from his back As Alleyne stooped to raise him the air seemed to be alive with the sharp zipzip of the bolts and he could hear them pattering on the deck like apples at a treeshaking Keep them in play Aylward with ten of your men said Sir NigeL And let ten of Sir Olivers bowmen do as much for the Genoese I have no mind as yet to show them how much they have to fear trout us The mastershipman looked at the knight with a troubled face They keep their distance from us said he Our archery is overgood and they will not close- I think I may trick them the knight answered cheerfully and passed his order to the archers Instantly five of them threw up their hands and fell prostrate upon the deck They still hold aloof cried Haw tayue Then down with two morel shouted their leader That will do Ma foil but they come to our lure like chicks to the fowler To your arms men As he spoke a roar of voices and a roll of drums came from either

lines of the English bowmen and the arrows whizzed in a deadly sleet among the unprepared masses upon the pirate decks One moment Alleyne saw the galleys poop crowed with rushing figures waving arms exultant faces the next it was a bloodsmeared shambles with bodies piled three deep upon each other the living cowering behind the dead to shelter themselves from that sudden stormblast of death On either side the seamen whom Sir Nigel had chosen for the purpose had cast their anchors over the sides of the galleys rore and aft the archers had cleared the galleys decks but from either side the rovers had poured down into the waist where the seamen and bowmen were pushed back and so mingled with their foes that it was impossible for their comrades above to draw string to help them It was a

the swing of an axe springing over the sweep of a sword so swift and so erratic that the man who braced himself for a blow at him might find him six paces off ere he could bring it down Three pirates had fallen before him and he hud wounded Spadebeard in the neck when the Nor man giant sprang at him from the side with a slashing blow trout his deadly mace Sir Nigel stooped to avoid it and at the

himself beaten to the deck by a weaponEre uponhiswas In the hands of a stronger man than himself Then came in truth a battle of giants such is seldom witnessed enagehisbeing thwarted by such an mile

sharp crack like a breaking stave it turned limp in his grasp and the tingersInother hand Back and back still the Saxon bent him until with aroar of pain and of fury the giant clanged his full length upon the boards while the glimmer of a knife before the bars of his helmet warned him that short would be his shrift if he moved Cowed and disheartened by the loss of their leader the Normans had given back and were now streaming over the bul warks on to their own galley dropping a dozen at n time on to her deck But the fight had taken a new and a strange turn upon the other side Spade benrd

after him but Hordle Johns heavy band dragged him back by the girdle The vessels were indeed so far apart now that the Genoese could use the full sweep of their oars and draw away rapidly from the cog

with many a tower and minaret along the western shore Never hud he in his quiet life seen so great a town nor was there in the whole of England save London alone one which might match it in size or in wealthI trust Aylward said Sir Nigel coming upon deckOothat the men are ready for the land Go toll them that the boats will be for them within the hour The archer raised his hand in salute and

PRODUCE THE WEST lives hundreds WASTE Southern Prof coal is now expensive and large areas of potatoes will be grown for their g test possible yield of alcohol The sweet potato and yam would furnish about the same proportions of alcohol as the white potato- ALCOIIOL FROM CORN AND STALKS An acre of corn fifty bushels will furnish 130 gallons of absolute alcohol a bushel of corn two and fourfifths gallons An acre of potatoes thus produces much more alcohol than an acre of corn when only the grain of the latter is taken into consideration But corn stalks if harvested before they dry out contain large quantities producehol per acre according to the estimate of Secretary Wilson In 100000000 acres of corn the making of ten billion gallons of this alcohol therefore yWilsoning when we will

byproduct of our beet sugar fac tories generally goes to waste in other states Yet we sit by and bemoan the decreasing supply and increasing price of coal the diminishing supply of wood wonder where we shall turn next for power heat and light whether we shall harness the moon with tide motors or the sun with solar engines Moreover the production of eastern petroleum is falling off and practically no gasoline is being found in the petroleum of Texas and the West And yet according to Dr Wiley our farmers can grow any maybeworld and not a pound of it would take one element of fertility from the

gation Boston gallon proposition of Nahum Bachelder master of the National Grange o was pressing the passage in the in terest of the 800000 farmers of his organization These cooperative dis tilleries would be under close government supervision and the alcohol would be rendered unfit for beverage purposes before leaving the distillery warehouse In this way the cost to the farmers of this material for lighting heating cooking and motor fuel purposes could be kept at the lowest point In Great Britain alcohol made un drinkable by the addition of 5 per it of wood alcohol and a much smaller proportion of mineral nnptha is now sold freely without tax Since Germany also had untaxed alcohol fo industrial purposes France witzer land Holland Belgium Italy Russia Sweden Norway AustriaHungary

alcohol back into its original condition would be much more than for making pure alcohol anew according to Dr Wiley He thinks the best method of making it undrinkable would be the addition of ten per

in Blouses Very Fashionable Especially the Delicate Tints BERTHA BROWNING In the new Paris lingerie the fashion is to have sets of chemise drawers and short petticoat of the same material and type and all trimmed in the same manner Nain sook and very fine batiste are the ma terials usually employed for their con struction the mode of silk underwear being for the time abandoned There are two new fabrics called silk nain sook and silk chiffon both cotton but of very fine weave and which do not lose their glossy appearance in wash ing These materials have much the appearance of silk and in garments made of them lace is profusely used upperiare most to the elbow These are open A NEW UNDERGARMENT nearly to the shoulder over the forearm where they are loosely tied with a succession of ribbon bows In lin gerie garments the square neck is preferred to the round this year and this is always finished with a band of lace or embroidery The empire form is of course very fashionable for chemises but while it is a pretty cut it needs to be made of very fine material else its straight form will lie in folds beneath the cor set Most chemises nowadays are shaped in under the arms so as to do away with this extra width at the waistline A pretty finishing to take the place of sleeves and shoulder parts on a garment to be worn with decol lette dress consists of ribbons which tie on the shoulders and may be untied and slipped beneath the bodice when worn with the evening gown The Japanese nightgown of quit loose cut is a decided novelty Thi has rows of little tucks descendin from the shoulder and extending way down the figure A double ban of insertion starts at the foot of the gown passes by the side of the tucks over the right shoulder and around the neck at the back meeting in the centre of the front at the waistline The sleeves are loose and flowing as befits a garment of this nature Few nightdresses have collars most of them being finished with straight bands of embroidery or lace CHARMING DRESSING SACKS Some very jaunty little dressing sacks of silky batiste or nainsook are being constructed These are entirely accordeon pleated except for a por tion of the sleeve Lace and insertion surround the throat and for those of Empire cut a band of the same marks the high waistline in back and in front rises over the bust to be fastened with ribbons Some of these
