For Margery Golden, glancing up from her game, stared Idly into the mirror of bevel plate facing her from the opposite wall. And peering in at the window reflected in that mirror she saw a bearded face seamed with an unmistakable scar. She did net scream aloud, as her first impulse had prompted, but she sat staring down at her cards, trying to study out the dilemma which confronted her. For the face she had seen was Legar's. The move she quietly decided upon was to call the strangely reticent chauffeur of her strangely elusive deliverer and ask him to make ready for an immediate flight to the city. She watched that chauffeur as ho threw on a heavy bear-skicoat and cap, wound a muffler about bis neck, and started for the garage. She watched him as he stepped out into the darkfigure ness.

There are differences of opinion as to the best ways of pruning to secure the results desired, but most successful growers admit that regular pruning is desirable. Each grower in pruning his trees has in mind the securing of some definite objects, though he may not know just what the principles of pruning are. Each tree furnishes a problem in itself, but if the principles are understood these problems can be solved. Avoid Bad Crotches. After a tree is planted it is headed back to a single unbrnuehed stem or a stem with several branches, depending on the size and age of the tree. The second season several of these stubs or new branches are selected to form the scaffold limbs of the tree. Care should be taken to have these three or four spread out well along the main stem so as to avoid bad HUTS" ' ON LIVER; BOWELS No sick headache, biliousness, bad taste or constipation by morning.

Mr. Bryan explained that he had long regarded government ownership as inevitable, but only because of railroad opposition to effective regulation. Against Government Ownership. "Personally 1 cannot say that 1 desire government ownership," he explained, "because I lean to the individual idea ratber than to the collective idea: that is, 1 believe that government ownership is desirable only where competition is impossible." Alfred P. Thorn, counsel to the Railway Executives' Advisory Committee, previously had presented before the niemlers of the Newlands Committee as one of his reasons for urging a better balanced and more systematic regulation of railroads the argument that this is the only alternative to government ownership. Calling attention to the restrictions imposed upon the transportation lines by conflicting state laws and regulations, to the practical cessation of new construction and to the impossibility under existing conditions of securing the new capital needed for extensions and betterments of railway fatuities, he warned the Congressmen that unless they provided a fair and reasonable system of regulation that would enable the railroads to meet the growing needs of the country's business the national government would be compelled to. take over the ownership of the lines with all the evils attendant upon such a system.

He said that he did not object to consolidations of railroad lines so long as they did nor destrtjv comiietition, that he knew of ; no complaint against great railway systems because of their size and that he believed that the preservation of competition was the test to be applied to all consolidations. Regulation of Securities. Mr. Bryan declared himself in favor of national regulation of railway stock and bond issues, but added that he saw no reason why that should exclude the states from acting on the same subject as to state corporations. "I would like to see the stock of a railroad, as long as it is in private hands, made as substantial and as unvarying as the value of a government bond," he asserted. He suggested that railroad capital! zation be readjusted to equalize it with actual valuation of the i operty making due allowance for equities, and that when this was done the roads should be allowed to earn sufficient income to keep their stock at par and to create a surplus. The latter, he tentatively proposed, might be allowed to amount to 25 per cent orders $522,881, and we have not of the capital. received a SINGLE DOLLAR on Washington, Jan, 22. -- Secretary Railway Earnings Low. these contract.

The conclusion of the whole matter is thus stated by Senator Borah: "I want' peace," I share that sentiment with al my country men. I would hesitate to stand against the Chief Executive in any move which be would make in regard to it. But rather than see my country enter upon that course which, in my humble judgment, is not to promote peace but to promote war, 1 would oppose it at whatever cost to the cause of peace in Euiopn. I will not seem to court peace and instead and in fact court war. I do not know, Mr. President, how universal the sentiment is. We are told it has become practically the sentiment of the American people I pro pose for my part to reflect and to repent before we start upon such a course and not afterward Tbese are tbe words of truth and soberness; the words of balanced judgment.
