the human body A great deal of care and skill have entered Into Its manufacture and in order to keep it In effective condition- some points suggested by a maker of forty years experience may be worth noting saya the New York Herald In the first phce a piano cannot keep its tone in a damp place Damp ness rusts both strings and tuning pins and also causes the felt on the ham mess and dumpers to swell thus caus- Ing the mechanism to move Irregularly sluggishlyTo the Ivory keys from turn Ing yellow allow them to be exposed to the rays of the sun occasionally While avoiding dampness dbriT3t on

leave It without winding for a long time thus causing the oil to clbt It Is just us hurtful to u piano to keep It closed for months ata time Even when not In use open It occasionally If you insist

taught by precept if not by words that the most necessary purpose in life is to have money Get money honestly if you can but get money Many honorable Christian parents have spent the best part of their lives in an en deavor to rear a family of noble men and women only to meet disappoin nient and sorrow in declining year when the information reaches them that one of those boys for whom so much has been sacrificed has fallen under the strain of the public purpoje to get money When this sorrow reaches the homes of those we love honor and respect it strikes us more forcibly than the reports of such criminal acts constantly set before us in the daily papers and then our hearts go out in sympathy to the sad parents and the entire community suffers with them We cannot measure the influence of our lives upon the lives of those about us and perhaps some word or deed of ours in the past was the first stepping stone in the downward path of oUr neighbor boy on whom we had learned to look with pride and a fond anticipation of a bright and honorable future May the time soon come when all our people shall fully realize their public obligations and cease living only to get money Like David and

trouble may easily be avoided If in preparing the food for the old folks the following practical suggestions be kept in mind says the New York American Frying should not be chosen as a means of cooking meat for children When preparing beefsteak have a hot fire place the steak on the gridiron and hold ft close to the fire for a min ute turning it rapidly The fierce heat coagulates the albumen near the surface seals the pores of the meat and keeps In the Juice When the outside Is seared hold it farther from the flue until it is done On removing sprinkle It with salt Stehk should be cut about one InchI thick The top of the round a and well flavored part of the beef and steak cut from there is less expensive than the sirloin or choicer steaks ansII more nutritious This same method of broiling may be applied to other meats Poultry is not more desirable for children than beef or lamb although being mor delicate it Js sometime- econsidered so Either the white or dark meat may be given the former being preferable It may be rousted boiled or broiled Fat Is essential to the proper growth of the tissues of the nerves and bruin and Is peculiarly important to children as the brain enlarges rapidly during childhood Next to butter and cream bacon is one of the most palatable forms In which it can be given It should not be overcooked as then too much of the fat is fried out Sometimes bread soaked in bacon fit will be eaten with relish After a child Is two years old a vegetable of some kind besides potato 4may be given at the midday meal Cabbage and raw cucumbers are un suitable but any other well cooked vegetable is harmless in small quanti ties Stewed celery peas beans ton der cauliflower baked or stewed tomato are all useful Any fresh ripe seasonable fruit may be given early in the day to a child who is well The points to observe are to have It sound that Is without a sus picion of staleness and not to give too raspberrieses oranges and grapes are all welcome Fruit having a skin should be pared and grapes should have the seeds removed or the child should be taught not to swallow them Bananas must be given with caution They disagree with many children Try a slice one day and if no ill effects follow two the next proceeding slowly until certain it can be well borne suppereApples pears and peaches cooked in this way are a valuable addition to the diet list and almost any of the fresh fruits can be similarly treated In winter preserved apples apricots etc are nearly as nice as the fresh fruit and bear little resemblance to the old fashioned leather like dried prepa rations They must 09 soaked overnight before cooking and boiled until perfectly tendercPrunes a favorite dish in many nurseries Grewsome Rites Laid ToT ibel El Paso Tex May 29In the fact that a similar charge was in= grandjjury some time ago another complaint has been filed with United States Dis trict Attorney Llewelyn of New Mex ico that a tribe ot Indians in that ter ritory is given to the worship of an enormous serpent to which is fed the newborn babies of a pueblo in wnich it is housed and carefully tended and guarded The complaint was filed by a Catholic priest who alleges that a dozen families were segregated from several pueblos around about two years ago and formed into a pueblo by them selves that although it is known that many children have been born to these families not a child is to be found in the pueblo This led the priest to press his in vestigatiqns with the result that he discovered that in an adobe house iso lated and closely guarded there is an enormous serpent which is worshiped by the Indians of all the pueblos around and that every babe Wh in thesmall pueblo and it is sjasjpecteir many others are fed to the serpent Ma j Llewelyn

and foun the brute had taken to a tree The big reddish brown Jbear is one by Bradford Weekes and his brother Harold who have bachelor quarters in West Main street They kept the bear as a pet although it is not reported to have an amiable disposition Bruin WItS kept chained to a stump on thu Weekes brothers premises and was known to all the school children in the village who often called at a safe

short time for the whole village to learn the bear was loose and the entire population soon seemed to bo making its way to the Weekes brothe home The rich went In automobiles jnn6 carriages and the poor footed it ty the scene of the bear hunt In a short time there was a big crowd gathered about the tree where the bear was perched and all kinds of suggestions were made as to the best way to get him down Dan Smith who is looked upon as something otn cowboy having once been In the far vestrnltbough details are lacking of his tripthought he would try his hand at lassoing the bear He got a coil of rope and having made a loop at one end he whirled the coil three times around his head and then gracefully threw the boor at the bear The rope fell short and Dan tried It again Tits thhe he almost succeeded in throwing the coil over the bears Lead but the brute ducked In time Severnl moral attempts wore made by Smith but all failed While the lassoing was going on and in the intermissions sticks mid stones were hurled at time bear by the crowd but the animal when hit only growled ami showed ids gleaming tooth Tills would Invariably bring from the small bojs in the crowd shouts of Delight edl Bully for the Teddy bear and similar cries Finally some ono suggested that fire be used to scarf the best out of the tree and this Ideawas at once adopted A ladder was procured also a 16ug pole to the end of which was tied A bunch of rags The rn s were saturat ed with kerosene oil which was then set on fire Dan Smith took the pole torch and ascended the ladder to the topmost rung amid wild cheers from the natives He puked the Biasing rags at the bear but bruin instead of com- ttigdown only growled and went higher up the tree to vfhore the pole couldnt reach hint By this time the Weekes

facing Bob She did not seem to see Mme she saw nothing but the man who had gone out that morning the personI jlflcatlon of hope who now stood bEtI fore her the picture of black despair i and she must have thought It was altifor me Suddenly she took the lapels of his torn coat in either hand Shed to reach up to do it this winsome little Virginia lady With her big calm blue eyes looking straight into his she said was all but the word seemed to change the very atmosphere in the room The look of desperation faded from Bobs face and as though the words had sprung the hidden catch to pentupmiserying tears His great chest was con jrulse with sobs Agaln clear calm t ess and fender came the one tillable Bob And at that sobs JcorolilfpP ed the Leash With a hOrsecry he thhwhis arms around pier and crushed her to his breast The sacredness of the scene made me feel like an Intruder and I started tot leave the rom But Ina moment Beulah Sands was her usua self and turning to me she said Mr Ran dolph please forget what you have MryBrownleys awful misery nothing but what he had done for me- had tried to do for my father what a penalty he has paid From t what you said when you left and the taCt that I got no word from either of you I feared the worst and did not t dare look at the tape I simply waited and hoped and prayed Yes I prayed D my mother taught me 1 should pray whenever I was helpless and could do nothing myself And I felt that God would not let the noble work of two such men be overthrown by those you were battling with In the midst of a calmness that I took for a good omen you came Can you blame me for for cettirig myself Mr Brownley the voice was mow calm and self controled tell me what you have done Where 4o we stand 1 There is little to tell Bob answered I Camemeyer and Standard Oil have taken me into camp at they would take a stuck pig They stave made a monfieyfled ass out of mp and we are ruined and I have caused Mr Randolph a heavy loss t Roughly I figure that of your four hundred thousand capital and the mil lion four hundred thousand profit you had this morning only your capital remains Wishing to spare Bob I Interrupted and myself gave the girl briefly the de tails of what had happened She listened intently and seemed to take Jn all the trickery of the System mas tars seemed to see just what it meant to us and to her But she made no comment showed by no outward sign that she suffered As soon as I was through she turned to Bob who had stood with his eyes fastened upon her face as though somewhere out of its assurancTthatMr Brownley she said let ui thatlwe recoup You have said so many times since I have been here that Wall street is magic land that no man may tell 24 hours ahead what will happen to him You have said it so many times that I believe It We know that this morning we were at the goal that we were millions ahead and all from 24 hours effort We have yet almost three months left and I do not see why we have not just as much chance as we had day before yesterday Yes and more because we know more now Next time we will Include the divi lend cuts and the senate duplicity In figuringWe dumbly stared in wonder jag admiration at this marvellous woman Was It possible that a girl could have such nerve such courage Or had womans hope so persistent where her loved ones are concerned made Beulah Sands blind to the awfulness of the situation As I looked at Iher I could not doubt that she fully realized our position that she was really suffering more than either of us that she was only acting to ease Bobs languish Bob brought out his memo f iranda and in half an hour we hadtbe figures The total loss was nearly three millions As Beulah Sands 2Q tOo shares had cost less thaw ours and Sob figured to leave her capital of 9400000 intact we felt some comfort Beulah Sands had watched the figuring with the keenness of an expert and when Bob announced the final figures which showed that she still had what she started with she drew the sheet containing the totals to her 1 was willing to accept your assistance she Maid when the deal promised a 1 to all of us because I appreciated your goodness and knew how much it would kurt your feelings If I were churlish about the division but now that we alt loss I must stand my fair share I MUt She said this In a way that we possibilitytr03 + ent We owned iSt sBares I was to have had th- enatj1JaQ mar + Oar total ku j V Is 2775000 of which I must Ibear my just proportion 1llr Brown ey you will see that 370000 Is charged to my account I shall haVe 930 left If our cause is as just as we think God in His goodness will make this ample for our purppses Though Bob and I were In despair at her determination to strlb herself what Bob had worked so hard to accumulate we could not help feeling- a reverence for her faith and her sturdy Independence She now showed- us in her delicate way that she wished to be alone as we went she field out her hand to Bob Mr Brownley please for the sake of the work we have to do look on the bright side of this calamity for It has a bright side myrfathervictory Think if w had sent itthen you will know that God is good even when we think He is chastening us beyond endurance Bob took me his office Jim you see what a woman can do and we are taught women are the weaker sex Now listen to what you must do Accept my notes for the whole loss lesson e hundred thousand which I have my credit and which I will pay on toI count I wont listen to any objection The deal was mine you came In only to help us out and I ought never to have tempted you If I remain in my present busted condition the notes will be blank paper Therefore you do me no harm In taking them t If I should strike it rich I should never feel like a man until I made up the loss It was no use arguing with him in his inflexible mood so r took his demand notes for 2405000 I begged him to go home with me to dinner but he insisted that lie could not face my wife with his last nights break still fresh In her mind Next day he did not turn up Along in the afternoon I received a telegram from him saying that he was on his way to Virginia that he needed a rest and would be back In a week 1 was worried ner vous It takes until the next day and the day after and the week after that to get down to the deepest misery of an upset such as we had been through I did not feel easy with Bob out of sight whilelie was sounding for a new footing I went to Beulah ands in hope we might talk over the affair but when I told her that Bob was to be gone for a week and that I was Uneasy she said in her calm confident manner I dont think there is any thing to worry about Mr Randolph Mr Brownley is too much of a man to allow an affair of dollars to do any thing more than annoy him He will be back all the better for his rest She dropped her long lashes In a this conversatlonIsclospd way that we had come to now meant going time CHAPTER IVyThe following week to the office He had not changed and yet he had changed greatly Rest had apparently done much for him His col r was good his step elastic as of old and his head was thrown back as if he were buckled up for the fray and wanted all to know it Yet there was something in the eye in the setness of the jaw in the hairtrigger calm yet fiercely savage grip in which he closed his strong hands on the arms of his chair that told me more plainly than words that this was not the optimistic softhearted Bob Brownley I had known and loved I could not help feeling that If I had been a leader of the Ru sian terrorists and this man who new sat before me had come to my ke when I was selecting bomb throwe s I should have seized upon him of all men as the one to stalk the czar 01 his marked minions Surely the IroA that had entered Bob a soul a week b fore had affected his whole be- Ing I think Beulah Sands had some such tl oughts For I saw a shadow of perp exity cross her broad low fore head a ter her first meeting with him a shadow that had not been there before tFor lays after Bobs return I saw little or him I think Beulah Sands saw less During stock exchange hOurs he spent most of his time on the floor but he executed few of our orders He merely looked them over and handed them out to his assistants As far as I could learnie spent muchof his time there yesterdaylng through hopes graveyards a not uncommon pastime for active exchange member whose first through specials have been openswitched by the System tower man So strong had become this habit- of going about from pole to pole with bent head and a faroff gaze that his fellow members began to humor and respect It They all knew that Bob had gone up against the Sugar panic alltguessed from his changed appearance and habits that it must have been a bone smaiig blow Nothing w quickly and sq deeply stirs a stock exchange mans feelings for his brother member as to know that They have ditched his El Dorado flyer that is if he has been a good fellow They will humor his every whim and patiently await the oar whe he shall be agate I KF Bob Forgive Me tiut Love You Love You Bob in normal condition for all stpck gamblers whom Fate or the old hshunchback win the System has dumped either remain below the sur face or eve tually round to Ev ry day as soon as the stock exchange closed Bob disappeared whither I could not learn I had tried once or twice to draw him out under pretense of insisting upon his accepting iny wifes invitation to dine with us fie always had a ready excuse for mei to take to Kate but that was all Apparently he had no idea that I took any interest in ms movements after bUs- iness hours As for Beu ah Sands there was lout one change noticeable in her Wh ever a footst p stopped in front of her office she looked up from her work with an expectant almost appealing gazas though she were always waiting for some one I had not seen EJob in her office since that disastrous Sugar day and as he went directly to the exchange every morning and left there j every afternoon without retu q Ing to the office doing all his business by messenger or over the wire was but little chance of his meeting her November 1st had come and goner iInBeulahthe poor little = 30000 balance no other entries One afternoon Beulah Sands had asked for a meeting between Bob and myself In her office She could hardly have asked Bob to come without me but I knew It was Bob she wanted to see and I felt that the best thing I could do for them alas to leave them alone So I made some excuse for a moments delay at my desk telling Bob to go Into her office and promising to follow shortly He went In leaving the door partly open I think that from the moment he entered the room both of them utterly forgot my existence From Beulah could not see me and Bob sat so that his back was half toward me I dislike to trouble you about my ac count I heard her begin in a voice a trifle uneven but as must go back to father Christmas week I wanted to get your advice as to the advisability of writing him that though there is still a chance for doing wonders lidoI r IfIJitUIIBtIA not think we shall bebie to save him Of course I wont put it in just that blunt way but it seems to me I should begin to prepare him for the blow I have not talked over any more plung ing with you Mr Brownley since the unlucky one in Sugar and Miss Sands I understand what you mean Bob broke in and I should apologize for not having consulted with you about your business affairs The fact is I have not been quite clear as to the best thing to do 1 hope you dont think I have forgotten Never for a moment since I took charge of your affairs have I forgotten my prom- Ise to see that they were kept active Truly I have been trying to think out some successful plunge butbut there was a hoarseness In his voice I have not had my old confidence in myself since that day in Sugar when I killed your hopes and destroyed the chance of saving your fatherno I have not had that confidence a man must have in himself to win at this gameThere was a silence and then I heard an Indescribable fluttering rush that told as plainly as sight could have done that a woman had answered her hearts call Looking up Involuntarily I saw a sight that for a long moment held my eyes as if I had been fas cinated It was Bob bowed forward with his face hidden in his hands as beside him on her knees Beulah Sands her arms about his neck hi head drawn down to her bosom Bob Bob she said chokingly I cannot stand it any longer My heart is break Ing for you You were so happy when I came into happrness Is changed to misery and despair and all for me a stranger At first I thought of nothing but father and how to save him but since that day when those men struck at your heart I have been filled with oh such a longing to tell you to tell you Bob What Boulah what For the love of God dont stop tell me Beu lah tell me He had not lifted his head It was burled on her breast his arms closed around her She bent her head and laid her beautiful soft cheek down which the tears were now streaming against his brown hair Bob forgive me but I love you love TIWlJJllUllIlAj Af 1 Mr Randolph 1 Could Net Ttlt My Father a LI Even tt lava Hle Life r you Bob as only a woman can love who has never known love before never known anything but stern duty Bob night after night when all have left I have crept into your office and sat in your chair I have laid my head on your desk and cried and cried until it seemed as though I could not live till morning without hearing you say that you loved me and that you did not mind the ruin I had brought into your life I have patted the back of your chair where your dear head had rested I have covered the arms of your chair that your strong braveI hands had gripped with kisses NightI after night I have knelt at your desk and prayed to God to shield you to protect you from all harm to brush away the black cloud I brought into your life I have asked Him to do with me yes with my father and mother anything anything if only would bring back to you the happines- I had stolen Bob I have suffered suffered as only a woman can suffer She was sobbing as though her heart would break sobbing wildly convulsively like the little child who in the night comes to its mothers be to tell of the black goblins that hav been pursuing it Long before she had finished speakingand It took only a few heartbeats for that rush wordsI had broken the power of th fascination that held me had turne- away my eyes and tried not to For fear of breaking the spell I di not dare cross the room to close Beulafis door or to reach the outer door of my office which was neare- hers than It was to my desk I white through a silence broken only by Beulahs weeping that seemed hour long Then in Bobs voice came one low sob of boy Beulah Beulah my Beulah I realized that he had risen I rose too thinking that now I could close the door But again I saw a that transfixed me Bob had take Beulah by both shoulders 1dhe hel her off and looked into her eyes lon and beseechingly Never before nor since have I seen upon human face that glorious joy which the old mas ters sought to get into the faces o their worshippers who kneeling before Christ tried to send to Him through their eyes their souls grail tude and love I stood as one en thralled Slowly and as reverently the living lover touches the brow o his dead wife Bob bent his head and kissed her forehead Again and again he drew her to him and Implanted upon her brow and eyes and lips his kisses I could not stand the scene any longer l started to the corridor door an then as though for the first time either had known I was within hearing the turned and stared at me At last Do gave a long deep sigh then one of those reluctant laughs of happiness yet wet with sobs Well Jim dear old Jim where di you come from Like all eavesdroppers you have heard no good of your self Own up Jim you did not hear a word good or bad about yourself for it is just coming back to me that we have been selfish that we have left- you entirely out of our business con ference We all laughed and Beulah Sanded with her face a bloom of burnln blushes said Mr Randolph we hays not settled what it Is best to do fathers affairs After a little we did begin to talk business and finally agreed th Beulah should write her father war ing her letter as carefully as possible to avoid all direct statements bu showing him that she had made but little headway on the work she had cpme north to accomplish Bobwas ft changed being now so too was Beu lah Sands Both discussed their hopes and fetus with a frankness in strange contrast to their former manner Bu there was one point on which Bob showed he was holding back I finally put it to him bluntly Bob are you working out anything that looks ilk real relief for Miss Sands and he fathertI dont know how to answer you Jim I canonly say I have some Ideas radical one perhaps butwell I am thinking along certain lines I saw he was not yet willing to take us into his confidence We parted Bob going along in the cab with Mist days afterward she sent for u both as soon as we got to the office I have this telegram from father It makes me uneasy Mailed today Important letter Answer as soon as you receive The following afternoon the letter came It showed Judge Sands In very nervous uneasy state He sal he had been living a life of dally ter ror as some of his friends for whose estates he was trustee had been r ceiving anonymous letters advisin them to look Into the

that they might reorganize and carry out the schem- they had been so long planning Judg- Sands went on to say that the day h was compelled to sell his Seabbar- stock he would have to make publi an announcement of his condition a there could be no sale without th courts consent His closing was My dear daughter no one knows bait than I the almost hopelessness of expect- Ing any relief from your

that you are to be the savior of your family that you only a frail child are through Gods marvellous workings to be the one to save the honor of that name we both love more than life the one to keep

the warpath You can see from what I tell you of my father the terrible condition he is In now At night when I get to thinking of him hoping against hope with no one to help him nb one with whom he can talk over his affairs when I think of his nobleness In devoting his time rto mother and by beer willpower concealing from her his awful suffering it nearly drives me mad Miss Sands why will you not let me lend you the money necessary to tide your father over for awhile I askedYou are so good Mr Randolph but you dont quite understand my father in spite of what I have said He would not relieve his suffering at the expense of another not If It were a hundred times more acute You cannot understand the oldfashioned deeprooted pride of the Sands But can you notateast temporarily disguise from him just how yqu have arranged the relief Her big blue eyes stared at me n bewildermentMr I could not deceive lather I could not tell him a tie even to save his life It would be Im possible My father abhors a lIe He believes a man or woman who would file the lowest of the low things on earth When I go back to my fa ther he will say Tell me what you ihave done I can Just see him now istanding between the big white pillars at the end of the driveway I can Ihear him saying calmly Beulah my daughter welcome Your mother is waiting for you in her room Do not nose a moment getting to her After ward hell take me over the planta tion to show me all the familiar things and not one word will he al low me to say about our affairs until dinner is over until the neighbors have left for no Sands returns from long absence without a fitting home welcome When I have said good bight to mother and sister and he has drawn up my rocker In front of his big chair in the library alcove and Ive lighted his cigar for him he will look me In the eye and say tell me what you have done DaughterI no more think of holding back than I would of to the heart No Mr Randolph there is no possibility of relief except In fairly using that 30OQO and fairly winning back what Wall street has stolen from father Even that will cause both of us many twinges of Kionscience and anything more Is 1m possible If this cannot be done father must all of us must pay tho penalty of Reinharts ruthless act L- cpmImntmarket is shaping up so that we maybe able to do something soon was evident to both of us that hej had some plan in mind Later we learned that that Beulah wrote her father a long letterj telling him what she had done that she had made almost two millions profit from her operations that theyj had been lost agd that the outlook was not reassuring IShe begged himI to prepare himself for the final calamj ity promising that if there were no change for the better by December 1 she woTild come hjpme to be withI him when the blow tell She beggedI him to prepare to meet It like a Sands and assure him tHat if worse came to worst she would earn enough- to keep poverty away Judge Sands would receive this letter the second day following Friday the 13th day of November My God how well I know the date It is seared into my brain as though with a whitehot iron After our talk with Beulah Sands I begged Bob to dine with me and go over matters at length to see if we could not find a way out to relief No Jim I have work to do to nigh work that wont wait That tariff bill was buttoned today and It has Just been announced that the Sugar directors have declared a big extra dividend Things have come out just about as I told you they would and the stock is climbing today They gay it will touch 200 tomorrow and the street is predicting 250 m ten days Barry Conant has tfit a steady buyer all day and the bu reaus announced that the Standard OH are twenty millions winners They say the Washington gamblers the congressmen senators and cabinet members with their heel ers and lobbyists have made a killing About every one seems to have fattened up Jim but you and me and Beulah Sands and the public The public gets the ax both ways as usual They have been shaken out of their stock and they will be corn pelledto pay millions more each year for their sugar than they would if this law bad not been made for their benefit Jim there is no disguising the fact that the American people are as helpless in the hands of these thugs of the system as though they lived in the realm of the sultan where a few cutthroat brigands are licensed to rob and oppress to their hearts con tent Jim Randolph you know this game of finance You know bow it is worked and the men who work It Tell me if there is any consideration due Wall street and its heartandsoul butchers at the hands of honest men I do not know what mean Bob What are ypu driving at Never mind what I am driving at I ask you whether if an honest man knew how to beat Wall street at its own game he should hesitate to beat Ithesitate because of anything con nected wjth conscience or morals 1 You saw what Barry Conant was able to do to us that day simply by stand ing on the floor of the stockexchange and outstaying me In opening and closing his mouth You saw he was able to sell Sugar to a point so low that I was obliged to let IIpof Our 150000 shares at 8000000 Ui 10000 000 less than we could have got for them if we could liavo held them un tit today Because of this trick his clients the system instead of us make five to seven

take it out and tie trial will not cost you a cen I dont follow you Bob I know that Barry Conant was able to do this because he had more money behind him than you You think so do you Jim That s the way it looks to you but I tell you money had nothing to do with It Nothing had to do with it but the fiendish system of fraud and trickery upon which the whole stockgambling structure is reared Nothing entered into the whole business but the trick ery of stockgambling as conducted today It was only a question Jim of mans opening and closing his mouth and spitting out words From the minute Barry Conant came into that crowd until he left and we were ruin ed he showed no money no anything that I did not show From the very nature of the business he could not He simply said Sold oftener and longer than I said Buy He may have had money back of him or he may only have had nerve God Almighty is the only one who can tell for when Conant was through he was able to buy back at 90 the 50000 shares he sold me at 175 the 50000 that broke my back JJm if I had known as much that day as I do now I would have stood in that crowd and bought all the stock he sold at 180 and I would have stood there buying until hell froze over or he quit then I would have made him rebuy it at 280 or 2080 and I would have broken him and all his Camemeyer and Standard OH backers broken tiJBm to their

the visitation S the southern thirteenyear brood of 101 custs and the Bureau of of the Department of EntomQlogyI Washington has issued a signed to benefit the country which will suffer from it The brood this year is the largest of fits kind on record and the annals of the government go back to 1803 Uvery time it has appeared since a record of its migrations has been made the last one in 1894 It is announced bY the bureau that this year the broodWilI come in June and the states in which it will make its appearance are through out the southern states east of except Florida northward in the M v issippi and Ohio valleys through Missouri to Southeastern Iowa over most of Central and Southern Illinois extreme Southwestern Indiana Western Kentucky and more or less of Tennessee with extensions across the Carolinas into Virginia The bureau of Entomo logy is extremely desirous of obtaining a complete record of the distribution of this important brood and with this end in view has sent out thousands of circulars with reply cards which in formation relating to its occurrence in each district may be indicated With the assistance of the public the bureau expects to compile one of the most a I complete records ever obtained On severaloccasions in the past when the brood has been studied carefully it has come in conjunction with some of the brood of the Northern seventeenyear race and there has been some over lapping of territory But this year there will be no Northern or seventeen year brood so that it should be possible to clear up any uncertainty as to dis tribution When the locusts appear in great numbers they naturally cause considerable alarm and arouse tears for the safety of the shade trees aud orchards The Bureau of Entomology a says however tHat the actual damag- is usually slight except in the case o planted orchards and even her Ibyvigorous pruning back after the lo cust has disappeared much of the imju ry caused by egg punctures can be obviated Ordinary repelant substances such as kerosene emulsion or carboli- acid solutions seem to have very littl effect in preventing the oviposition o these insects Some recent experience however indicates that trees thorough I ly sprayed with Bordeaux mixture or a lime wash are apt to be avoided by the t locusts especially if there are trees or woods in the neighborhood a which they can deposit their eggs The bureau announces that the most re liable means of protecting nurseries s and young orchards is by collecting the insects in bags or umbrellas from the trees early in the morning or late in the evening when they are somewhat torpidia first appearance and Badly Mixed Up Abraham Brown of Winterton N Y had a very remarkable experience belays Doctors got badly mixed u oyer me one said heart

there entered an office jioy with thel1Itlot Sir Lucius Werner of the United Stated weather bureau At the bottom of the card the word Over was written anc upon the back this sentence For rea tLaYsSvate Now why in the world should tho weather man desire a private Inter view jThera can be ho graft In his office surely He can furnish no special brand of weather to those who will fatten his pocket and except In hl official capacity as the author of the local predictions In the morning paper Mr Werner seemed extremely reraoto from iny affairs Mr Werner proved to be a robust and florid young man yet a ous aspect tvithul and very courteous- lu his demeanor You are high up here said hewtbV gesture toward my window which overlooked all the neighboring housetops but I ant higher From thetowr er of the Exchange building where m office I can look Into thug roomsf- and I hiave recently seen here which seems to me very straugef Welj said I what was For two nights he replied I have tbavcu f They were not up when I took the offices said 1 and nstliese are north windows I never bothered about the mutter I spoke hurriedly and ended with a sign for him to proceed My attention was first attracted by peculiar lIghtfsaid heIt was InI lookferobably the lighting or a untch and then a sort of glow that made me sub pert fire I therefore took some powerful nlghtglusses and through them saw that a shaded lamp was burning appearcHe sat you now documentsfhad been lighted In the ordinary ways might have got a talc impression of the man and a better idea of what hq was doing but because of this dark onlrshadownwas a pause Mr Werner said I this Is lm portaut and I cannot help wlshln that you had told me sooner I ITatfe a nervous dread of intft slon he said coloring Doubtless should have told after the firs IIIWilln your tower tonight salIICertainly he have missednothing Not yet but perhaps you noticed tin great n mber of letter flies In the outeIroom There are documents

satisfied leavel looked to me I was in lltjfeatlon with the Las 1seJi Consiructioh efliupany over n ma- tt ter involving a very large sum of money My contention rested upon a con tract with that company and In the pers tiled In court upon my side of paI suit copies of this contract were includ ed but the original had disappeared wasklOleleSSprlvcn to adopt veiled tactics of delay In the hope that It might be found To the best of iny knowledge and belief the contract a very brief Instrument on u single sheet of paper had been butFtdropped It in the street I had taken It out of my safe ion a certain day and after collecting some other papers relating to the case had started for my r r lawyers Arriving there I had begins to discuss the matter ylth a member of the j qi when we discovered the- absenceof the contract yet I was un der the impression that I had had it in my hand while sittihg there with him He too believed that he hail seen The tnos carerui search proved fn tile unit we were forced to the conclu slou that a clerk in lies employ who had entered the room during our conference had taken the document fortthe purpose of selling it to the enemy This man was shadowed with no re suit and If he really sold It both hetand the purchaser were too shrewd fortus The Lassell ueople continued some ufylawyerwas a blind anti that they would force us Into court eventually knowing that we must1 lose But the story told by Lucius Werner put a different face on the mutter 1 discussed It fully with my secretary who is a very shrewd fellow unit he agreed with me that the nail seen by Mr Werner was hunting for that contract in my office If the Lassell people did not already hold it they must be very anxious to get it and as they had proved themselves utterly unscrupulous in their transactions with nie I was quite will lug to believe that they would employ criminal methods to wiu their case Alston my secretary suggested that there might have been l small leak In my lawyers office sufficient to give the Lassclls the tip that the contract was not there They might then have jumped to the conclusion that It was worth while to engage In a bit of bur glary at my own headquarters My safe was one that father bought many years ago retainedby me I know not tyhy Certainly I cherished no illusions as to its security Beyond doubt a modern export could open it easily and ct Ithoiit a trace of violence I lever kept money In It except the small snots needed for dally cash tils bursctuents That night I watched with Werner In his tower and all conditions were fa lightqppcuredconclusions was possible the Lassells emissary hail already found the contract or he bud given it up The chance that he had skipped a night seemed hardly worth considering in view of all the circumstances that urged haste I did not believe that he had given up search He had spent only an hour each night In my room and this time seemed to me insufficient except upon the supposition that he bad found what he was after The t me CQrre sponded with certain post ilitles for entering the building Uy a basement door communicating with the engi neers department I disco Bred that a man could get in that w ly a little before 12 and escape n little utter 1 without much risk of obse nation I had a man oh watch there hat night but without result Not susp clous per silo nttemptedto enter TJiere were however other ways In wlilcli the thing migh have been done as Werner pointed omhto me A man might have Tilmself in the building add remained till morning and this seemed the simpler way Upon the whole I was driven toward the conclusion that the contract had been found nUll my lawyer agreed with me In a conference which we held In my office late In the afternoon of the day following my vigil In the weather bureaus tower It was nearly 7 oclock when this Interview ended and when I came out of my private office I was surprised to find Werner waiting for ore In the larger rooter lie expressed a desire to discuss the case with me null we spent half an hour or more but he offered only the advice that I should watch once more In his tower I noticed however that lie scrutinized my room with great vi e examining the desk and cJccJnJJYtbe- window With it cool precision proper to the man of sclentttlc training butI what he gained by these observations I was far from guessing We dined together and watched with him again but my vigil was un rewarded Finally near dawn I lay down to sleep upon a couch and dreamed bad dreams till I awoke to find Werner standing beside me with his hand upon my breast He provided me with a breakfast otI eggs and coffee which he prepared himself upon a queer little electric contrivance chiefly his own Invention and then he asked to go with me to ray ofilce We were there ahead of the buy whose duty It to open the rooms and the youth was vastly surprised to find me in my sanftura when he ar rival Alston who Is an early bird was also amazed In his own peculiar amf cold fashion I made him acquainted with Verner whom he had not previously met and he extended his hand Werner looked at the hand If It had been an object of scientific Interest but he did not take It Instead he slowly wagged hisI head with the negative sign No sir said he I do not care to take the hand of the man who robs his benefactor The use of this word apprised me that Werner had asked some questions about John Alston whom indeed 1 hud befriended In rn somewhat unusual manner though ubtnrt was not gen orally known This Inference flitted through my brain In the midst of the confusion and surprise Cwsqd by Wer ners startling accusation Meanwhile Alston was regarding Werner with some small signs of resentment but without alarm or any Indication of guilt Those are hard words Mr Werner1 safd L They must be Instantly with drawn or justified Tell me replied Werner calmly do you know any honest business that would bring this man here by night with a dark lantern t t Theres no doubt about his business f he was here said I Thats the pointLast evening when I was here with you I made some observations said Werner Will you step up on that table and examine the casing of the window I glanced toward Alston and caught just the faintest wavering gleam In his eye which led me to comply with Wer ners request I found what my friend weather man had previously seen some fresh inurka upon the upper port of the casing strongly suggesting some covering had been tucked up cover the window This rug said Werner would an swer very nicely Ah here are the marks In the corners hAU this Is very Interesting Interposed Alston but fail o see how it connects nie with this matter Who else knew that I had seen that light In these windows demanded Werner Alston smiled

wlh rage not fear He made a sud den pass at Werner who cleverly caught his wrist and held It firmly despite the others efforts stepped forward and took hold of Alstons hand Dull brown stains upon the thumb and finger revealed beyond possibility of doubt the action of Wer ners magic We were here last said Werner We came here first this morning If this man did hot get these stains here clurjng the

Up Is necessary to explain the circumstance Alston sur rendered lie admitted that he bad seen the Lassell contract among some letters taken from un old file box on the afternoon of Its disappearance When the loss became known to him he guessed that I had accidentally put away the contract with the letters but he had not been nibleto find out what file box I had been using He dared not ask me lest the question should convey a suggestion to my own mind and so After debating the question with himself for some time he hud decided to sen rch all the file boxes a most luborlou task and one that he dared not opci ly undertake Ho declared that he had Intended to give me the contract when he should find It and depend upon my gratitude for his reward but Investigation proved that he was In negotiation with the Lusells The contract was found In the file box aIHII won my case for which fortunate event owe deep grat itude to Lucius Werner who refuses to be rewarded but It ever he Qr any
