Johnson in Farmers 1do a Journal Nine years ago this summer I sp nt several months in New Mexico jIspent this time in the Peers Mountain at a little village called Taos To reajch this place I left the railroad at E n buda and drove about forty miles into the mountains An Indian drove ijne over behind two Western horses which he told me had never eaten any grain but when at hard work got nothing but alfalfa I immediately became interested in a hay which would support horses so well on long hot hard drives like that During the time I was at Taos I watched the harvesting of al falfa and many many times discus e the subject with the most intellig n natives I came home and sowed a field upon my farm in alfalfa I now wish to give your readersrot any advice upon the subject but my experience with it At Taos was told that they sowed alfalfa seed in the spring just as coin as tender plants were safe from severe rosts Follow ing their advice I sowed the last week in March The field had been in corn the preceding year I disked it well sowed one halt of the field inalfalf and the other half in red clover and then rolled both well I got a fine set of clover but only half a stand of al falfa During that summer I ran a mower over it several times about eight inches from the ground Thisi kept the weeds from smothering it out Next March just as the plants showedI the first signs of life I ran a row over the alfalfa not set very deep then sowed as much seed broadcast over the ground as I had sowed in th- beginning and thou ran the disk over it the other way these two sowings gave me a fine set That year I cut it three tim sj apd ever since have cut it times each clodyear r ran out and I sowed the rest of the field in alfalfa and got a good sth p It thV first sowing I sowed a bushel to four acres A great number of people i in this section have advised with me jaboiifc sowing alfalfa and I advise then all to follow clover peas I find from observing my neighbors that it follows boats very badly and corn not much better II usually cut mv first crop the last week in Mayor the first week in June It should be cut just as the first blossoms appear Icut down no more in one day than I can haul in the next afternoon In other words always cut in the morning after the dew is off clerrlafternoon let it stay in that condition until next flay after dinner when I haul it to the barn If the ground is at all moist from recent rain the sky cloudy putdthetlast crop about the first or second week in September As the May and September sun is not so hot as is the case with the two ifnddle cuttings I usually put tholiiy find September duttings into windrows the next morning after it is cut down while I put the two middle cuttings into the windrow the ame afternoon unless as I said the ground is damp or thcTsSy cloudy I have several times departed Tom this custom upon the advice of others who thought that I gave it too much sun theaadvice with musty hay If rain falls upon the hay as it lieiftifcthe swath it does not damage it perdeptibly but it always does harm if it catches jt in the windrow After it has been wet inI the windrow and dried out spread the color is changed to a goldenI instead ot the preferable green the two last cuttings better the twp first and I like the last one better than any of them I have not barn room sufficient for Iebale one cutting before making another cutting During the winter when I enl bale of is almost as green as when ajalfaJit the mow ingknife I ke of my own because my four crops justify my doing sJLand also because I might not be a fiit to ge one before another crop should be cut At the conclusion of each baling I gather up the which have fallen oft at the baler an bales them for chicken ieed during the i IiL J t eggsjallof my neighbors During each of the times he was feeding it he took theII premium at the diary where he sold his milk but he was always beaten during the times when he was not feeding alfalfa I have kept a record of all expenses upon and all receipts from my alfalfa crops and during the last seven years t my alfalfa field has netted me nearly fifty dollars an acre eVery year Last year it netted me 5260 Yours truly BEN JOHNSON Bardstown Ky jLa Marion County Falon The pretty and bright five y arold daughter of Mr Robert Me Carty residing in the Haysville neigh borhood died Tuesday of

thread upon winch h the trust system has laid its unholy hand The Chicago Tribune republican prints this editorial v If street car fare were to be jumped to seven cents and then to ten cents the entire community would be uom arms If the price of the glass of beer were to be advanced thus there would be wild indignation among the beer drinkers To the woman five cents is as much the natural price of a spoolof cotton thread as to a man five cents is of a glass of beer The price of thread t raised a short time ago to seven cents 4a spool has been put up to ten cents Will the women of the country submit uncomplainingly or will they call upon the men to join with them in demanding a return to the old price There are women who will protest r against the advance in price not because they will feel it but as a matter of principle There are other women who will be hard hit The garment workers who jbuy their own thread will earn a few cents less a weeks That will be no trival matter for their earn ings are scanty enough at best With them every cent counts When the t coin which used to buy two spools of thread buys only one they feel it keen ly The finances are disarranged Raw cotton costs more than it did a few years ago There have been 1recent advances in1 the wages of the cotton spinners But as an offset there have been improved processes of manufacture anda rapid increase in the i volume Of sales Whatever net in crease there may haye been in the cost of production is not enough to justify a 100 per cent advance in price There would be no such advance if there were any real competition in the manufac ture of cotton thread The industry is practically monopolized by one great concern and it is utilizing its monopoly for the oppression of poyerty stricken I sewing women The women ot the country do not take a deep interest in the prosecution of railroads which pay rebates or of I such industrial concerns as the tobacco trust If the government were to at tack the cotton thread monopoly they would all sing the praises of the de partment of justice f Perhaps they will be gratified It was reported recently that the law officers of the government had started j a preliminary inquiry into the affairs of the American Thread company with an eye to beginning legal proceedings It is generally believed that while the company pears an American name it is controlled by foreigners The Coatses and Clarks who are British manufac 4turers of cotton thread are understood to dominate the affairs of the English Sewing Thread company It is not pleasing to be dictated to by a domes tic trust It is even less so when an alien trust exploits American consumers There is nothing to justify the re cent sharp advances in the price of spool cotton They are made only on the principle of charging all that the traffic will bear The trust beli yes the consumers can pay ten cents a spool and the intention is to make them pay it Big Revival Meeting Lebanon Enterprise The

and their Immediate en vironment A number of hundred untie runs are possible today and thousand mile trips will soon be mad Experl mice thus far seems to have proved beyond any question that trolley lines cnn carry passengers and parcels at much lower rates than Is possible for steam railways It is true that they cltf not yet run at the speed of express trains but this Is offset by the fact pf more frequent communication In many cases probably In a majority the cost of the trip Is of greater consideration to the traveler tJ1eItime required for It n a equality of physical comfort If a steam railroad trip of a hundred miles Is made In two hours at a cost of 2 and the same trip can be made by trolley In three and a half hours for 150 there will be plenty of passengers for the trolley The development of this system of transportation makes It even probable that before many years our railways will be used mainly for long distance traggl and heavy or bulky freight while the trolley will be generally used for all other business It Is not possible to say Just what may happen around New York city where conditions are somewhat peculiar So far as the country at urge Is concerned there can be little doubt that trolley lines are destined to effect a revolu tion In passenger transportation and also to exert an important Influence in the field of parcel freight Neighbors Got fooled HI was

andlwoolly western h may have sent chills up and down the spine of old OX ordby perforating window panes with bullets from 44 caliber six shooters and stories may have come across the sea as to the rather poor rank oC the American students but California just the same is pretty proud of a young fellow named WH Ham Crittenden who recently got back from his course as a beneficiary of the great foundation made by Cecil Rhodes says a Berkeley Cal special dispatch to the New York Times r Crlttendenl was the first Rhodes scholar to reach Oxford He was also the first t6 get awayat least the first to get away With a clean record for theI full course As a matter of fact Crit tenden finished up his three years work in two years and spent the extra year things in odd corners of the continent and in taking a special course In lay Now about everybody In the Berkeley seelon of California knows Crit tendenSIntact he is notorious To begin with he was one of the brightest pupils in a school hereabouts As one result of his youthful attainments he was picked out by a man who runs a chain of newspapers In America to make atrlJt around the world and tell all about It In every edition from the Connecticut bulldog to the 11 p m extras He did the Job very consclenfr tlously When he got back and went into the University of California everybody seemed to know all about Crittendeii and the hazing that he got in his fresh man year would put West Point in the shacje tuar cover it up with leaves Pretty htUch all Iris first term war spent In telling inquisitive upper class men In compulsory lectures Just how he and the newspaper chain had done it Just the same he took it all in the proper spirit and came to be one of the most ponular men In college He was president of the Junior class at Berkeley was picked to go to Oxford WIecIJhe From be learned unofficially about Ciilttendens stay it Oxford he seems to have been the best of the American st dents as far as rank feoes at least An way California wail claim that honor u atil the returns come in There wa arlot of tall awhile ago the poor scholarship of the American hodes men Crltte den says that thy are all doing very veil Furthermore he believes that the Rhodes plan is n great one and will be of lasting benefit The first year he says the Americans did not take things seriously enough The life was so tree and easy that the Americans did not seem to realize that there was any work to do The second year how ever the men got down to real workIi and now they have a higher regard for the English system of education than they had at first For tho English students whom he- met at Oxford Crittenden has only warm praise I do not think he says that the people 5f this country appreciate the Englishman The Eng lish are about as honest and sincere and straightforward fellows as you can meet anywhere They are not at Keep Your Bowels Open It is a noticeable fact and one which any doctor will verify that people who suffer most often from disease are the ones who have the most difficulty in keeping their bowels open Regular bowel action is halHhe battle of health People who have a tendency to con stipation must of necessity use something to help nature along This should not be a violent aid like salts or purgative waters cathartic pills or powders but a that will Oil the intestines and membranes that it comes in co tact with Children women and weak people generally should never be gi en a strong physic as It weakens the system And it Is futile for the strpnLest person becaus the relief is simply for

to know them they certainly are fine friends They stick by one another In splendid fashion They received us Rhodes scholars with a great deal more courtesy even than they show one another They knew we were strangers and tried to do everything they could to put us at our ease They seemed to see that It the Rhodes scholarship scheme was to succeed they would have to give us an opportunity to see the English home and the English life Taking It for granted that we were decent sort of men they invited us to join the differS ent societies and asked us to visit their homes I remember that one man in vited us to shoot deer In his private park That of course was rather tame sport for a Californian but one couldnt help appreciating the spirit In which the Englishman gave the invitation Crittenden while traveling Jn Asia Minor a short time ago had an adventure with a gang of bandits Now he is prepared down to law practice or at further study of that pr the rich field thattolettJcSan Frapcl

things whi h do not rumple ensl ly should be packed first and articles requiring more care afterward says the Chicago Ret ordHerald Take each piece of clothing sepa nttely lay it down and fold it neatly and as tightly as possible avoiding lumps and wrinkles Begin to pack f t the upper left hand corner of the Iran and remember the order In which ygj place each separate class of articles hay the sleeves flat and fold the gowns Just the length of trunk SI1 Crocks and others of which you wish to take special care would better go In the bottom tray folded lengthwise and then through the center Place properly all plaits folds and ornaments and put a newspappr neatly over all to pro tect them from dust and rubbing Before locking the trunk sit down and take a mental survey of the things you have put Into It You may find that something has been forgotten or that you have parked the bottles whirl are likely to break or that your purse or ticket has been put In Walt until the last moment before turning the key and then put the lat terl at once Into the pocketbook you will carry thus avoiding all possibility of leaving It behind Francis Murphys Power In Los Angeles recently the late

chicken after dressing and you will usually find we think that It Is a deformity of some part of the body usually of the hip that causes It It has been argued thin BULh deformities are caused by over

Now It Is Impossible to state any hard and fast rules as regards the size of a poultry house or run requisite for mayUefowlhousc about fiVe square feet of floor space should be allowed for every adult fowl This estimate Is liable to modifications according to the size of the fowls and the height of the house In the open fronted or fresh air type of poultry house llhnlf this amount fowlIn floor

Inadmissible and under these circumstances at least fifty square feet of ground should be allowed for each fowl and a breed should be kept which Is best able to stand confinement for the varieties differ considerably In this respect Of course It Is essential for fowls to be confined during the breeding season and provided the runs are large enough or the number of fowls In each run small enough all will be well but It is the packing and jamming of a large number of fowls Into a small run that works such havoc among the birds and their progeny overcrowding being responsible for more than half

themselves are a disgrace to the Bluegrass state and apmenace to her lawabiding citizens does not fit in with our long cherished belief in the Kentuckians love of fair spectacleforce of numbers overpowering unarm ed men and shooting indiscriminately into houses occupied by women and r children is one calculated to bring the blash of shame to the cheek of every true Kentuckian as well as every other honest man Another and the worst feature is that the authorities seem toI be making no effort to stop such law less acts and punish the perpetrators Shame on the lawbreakers but more shame on the officers who do not per form their sworn dut- yNightriding in VesjernI Kentucky is exagerated by the- newspapersby the newspapers t jbf Kentucky When a disturb jance it matters not pi what na ture occurs in thatsec9ingild and misleading reports appear in Jhe public prints and through Ittnassive headlines and sensational Articles the people of other States are made to believe that Ken ucky is a veritable hotbed of rime and debauchery It can not be disputed that quite a number of depredations have been committed but it is v true that Some of the offenders have been apprehended two pave been sent to the penitenti arya number are in jail and not a few are under indictment The officers of law in West rn Kentucky are endeavoring to their utmost to run to earth he lawbreakers but their progr ss is slow pot because ofanf ilt pt theirs but because a mob it matters not of what nature is bard to apprehend We all remember that it e a q ked several years to capture the train robbers and highway men of the Western Statjs Through the combined efforts of flic best detective agencies in the natwnafter severalears ofn vcessant labgr these bands were finally destroyed The capture ofan

Beckham dates backabout fur years at a time when the gub rnatorial bee buzzed bumbled butted and bom barded beneath Marse Henrvs bonnet But Gov Beckham the tried and true leader of Democracy- the safe and sane Governor of Kentucky said Henri thou shalt not And Mr Watterson flinched floundered and flickered ABUSING MR WATTERNOS The evening Times in an editorial in its Tuesday edition complains that the country par pers are censuring Mr Watter too severely It may be true The editors papersisometimes elf pens deep in vitrio and put it on too But the Times intimates these edit ri utterances of the country pr ss are products of other brains The attacks are much too scurrilloiis to have any native and personal origination says the Times In plain language the Times believes or pretends to believe that Richard Knott editor of the Evening Post is supplying the country ress with thunder an lightnin with its stingers and pinchers which have of late become such an annoyance to Mr Vatterson The editors of country newspapers in a way are able to touch the spot or hit the bulls eye in a very forcible manner and then The CourierJournal and Times ought to remember the tgrrible days of 96 Dick KnotCdidnt assist in the brandishing then And the OJ1t on the country papers made it warm for Marse Henri Butt may be that too much is being saidtoo much ofa mean n ture Mr atferson is the greatest newspaper editor in the world and Kentucky is proud of him But Mr Watterson ought toalso guard his utterances He should quit that talk about Kentucky being the worst governed State in the Union He shouldnt let his personal dislike for Gov Beckham lead him to say things that are wholly untrue Mr 7atterson pretends to believe that Gov Beckham could suppress lawlessness ill Western Kentucky Suppose Gov Betk ham shpnld send the militia to that section of Kentucky Do you believe honest reader that a militia could iput down that sort of crime In our candid opinion it would add fuel to the fire While the militia was stationed in one section of the county the nightriders would be committing crirnesttin another section J Mr AVntterson knows that the only feasible and sensible plan to breakupthese bands of marauders is the oaf which has been adoptednit rli e y through detective agencies Sup pose militias had undertaken to destroy the bands of train rob that made QuI great western country a perfect rendezvous only a few years ago Nobody believes that sucha plan would have been successful It required- a host of the shrewdest detec tives in America to brink the robbers to justice To accomplish- the work it also required several years Militias may prevent mobs attacking at given Doints but they cannot prevent a shift ing moba mob here tonight and somewhere else tomorrow

hollow and empty like an echo And this place she add ed dolefully this awful place She glanced around at the cracked ceilings the cheaply papered walls the r shabby furniture and her heart ank itnisIfor the worst to help win the fights for her fathers honor but to have to rtruggle against sordid poverty as well to endure that humiliation in addition to disgrace ah that was something she had not anticipated She Cha ged color and her voice faltered Her fa t ther had been closely watching for just such signs and he read her thoughts ytcomplete I will tell you evefyth ng You shall Judge for

rour Journey Tomorrow sQmet me Stott and I will explain every thing Very well father as you wi h said Shirley gently After all she added in an effort to appear cheerful what matter where we live so Jong 4ifs we have each other She drew away to hide her fears and left the room on pretense of inspecting the house She looked into the dining room and kitchen and opened the cupboards and when she returned there were no visible signs of trouble in her face i Its a cute little house Isnt lU she l saIduIve always wanted a little i place like this all to ourselves Oh if you only knew how tired I am of New York and Its great ugly houses its retinue of servants and its domestic and social responsibilities We shall be able to live for ourselves now eh father She spoke with a forced gayety that might have deceived any one but the Judge He understood the motive iof her sudden change in manner aid- illently he blessed her for making his burden lighter Yes dear its not bad he aald Theres not much room though 4 inSlsjdLetch and above that three more No smiled the Judge then cones the root Of course she laughed urpld of mea nice gable roof a slops ig roof that time rain runs off beautiful y

her Isnt It absurd mother when jbu come to think of it that anybody should accuse father of being corrupt and of having forfeited the right to be Judge Isnt It still more absurd that we should be helpless and dejeCted and unhappy because we are ou Long Island Instead of Madison avenue Why should Manhattan Island be n happier spot than Long Island Why shouldnt we be happy anywhere We have each

success she exclaimed with glee Arent you proud of medad The judge smiled IndUlge tly Ot course he was glad and ud He al ways knew his Shlrlet was a clever girl But by what strange fatality he thought to himself bad his daughter In this book of hers assailed the very man who had encompassed his own ruin 1 It seemed like the retribution of heaven Neither his daughter nor the financier was conscious of the fact that each was indirectly connected with the impeachment proceedings Ryder could not dream that Shirley Green the author of the book which flayed h m so mercilessly was the daughter of the man he was trying to crush Shirley on the other hand was still unaware of the fact that it was Ryder who had lured her father to his ruinWhen at last she could Jock herself in her room where BO eye could see her Shirley threw herself down on the bed and burst into a torrent of tears She hd kept up appearances as long as it was possible but now the reac tion had s tln She gave way freely to her pent up feelings she felt that unless she could relieve herself in this way her heart wpuld break She had been brave until now she had been strong to hear everything and see everything but she could not keep It up forever Stotts words to her on the dock had in part prepared her for the worst he had told her what to ex pect at home but the realization was so much more vivid Then to have come to this all in the brief space of a few months It was Incredible terri ble heart rending And what of the future What was to be done to save her father frOm this Impeachment which she I new well would hurry him to his grave He could not survive that humiliation that degradation He must be saved in the senate but how how She dried her eyes and began to think Surely her womans wit would find some way She thought of Jeffer son Would he come to Massapequa It was hardly probable He would certainly learn of the change In their chcumstances and his sense of delicacy would naturally keep him away for some time even if other considers Lions less unselfish did not Perhaps lie would be attracted to some other girl he would like as wen and who was not burdened with a tragedy In her family Her tears began tp flow afresh until she hated herself for being so weak while there was work to lie done to save her father She loved Jeffer son Yes she had never felt so sure of It as now She felt that If she had him there at that moment she would throw herself In his arms crying Take me Jefferson take me away where you willfor I love you I lie you But Jefferson was not there and the rickety chairs in the tiny bed room and the cheap prints on the walls seemed to gibe at her In her misery Suddenly she thought of Jeffersons promise to merest his father In their case and she clutched at the hope this promlr held out as a drowning mitn clutches at a drifting straw Jef ferson would not forget his promise and he would come to Massapequa to tell her of what he had done She was sure of that Perhaps after all there was where their hope lay Why had she not told her father at once It mlpht have relieved his mind John Burkett UJdcrthe Colossus the manor unlimited power lIe could save her father and he would And the more she thought about it the more cheerful and more hopeful she became and she started to dress quickly so that she might hurry dowp to tell tier father time good news She was actual lysorrynow that she had sail so imuiy bard things of Mr Ryder In her book and she was worrying ovcrthe thought that her fathers case might be seriously prejudiced if the Identity of the author were

New York with Its congested mtlIit is one of the most strenuous and most noisy places on earth Yet de crowdIand there in the pursuit of business or elusive pleasure all chattering laugh- Ing shouting amid the deafening mul tisonous roar of trjifllp Incidental to Gothams dally life there Is one part of the great metropolis where there Is no bustle no noise no crowd where the streets are empty even In daytime where a passerby Is a curiosity and a child a phenomenon This deserted Village In the very heart of the big town Is the millionaires district the boundaries of which are marked by Carnegie hill bn the north Fiftieth 8treeton the south and by Fifth and ri Ya Madison avenues respectively on the west and east There Is nothing more mournful than the outward aspect of these princely residences which aban domed and empty for threequarters of the year stand In stately loneliness as if ashamed of their isolation and utter uselessness Their blinds drawn af fording no hint of life within envel oped the greater part of the time In the stillness anti silence of the tomb they appear to be under fife spell of some baneful curse No merry voiced children romp In their carefully railed off gardens no sounds conversation or laughter come from their hermetically closed windows not a soul goes In or out at most at rare Intervals does one catch a glimpse of a gorge ously arrayed servant gliding about in ghostly fashion supercilious and suspi cious mind addressing the chance visitor In awed whispers as though he were the guardian ota house of affliction Jit is Indeed like a city of the dead So it appeared to Jefferson as he walked up Fifth avenue bound for tht Ryder residence the day following his arrival from Europe Although he still lived at his fathers house for at no rupturehemore convenient for his wor and there he had gone straight from the ship He felt however that it vas his duty to see his mother as soon as pos sible besides he was anxious to fulfill his promise to Shirley and find what his father could do to help Judge Ross casewithat the club and the general impression seemed to he that guilty Or innocent tb Judge would be driven off the bench urope thought Jefferson as he strode quickly along pointed with en YtO Americas unparalleled prosper Ityspoke with bated breath of her great fortunes Rather should they say her gigantic robberies her colossal frauds As a nation we were not proud of our multimillionaires How many of them would bear the search light of Investigation Would his own father How many mllUon could one man make by honest methods Amer- Ica was enjoying unprecedented pros herHnHlipnairesIStates owed Its high rank in the family of nations to the countrys vast natural resources Its inexhaustible vitality Its great wheatfields the Industrial and mechanical genius of Its people It was the plain American citizen who had made the greatness of America not the millionaires who forming a class by themselves of unscrupulous capitalists had created an arrogant oligarchy which sought to rule the country by corrupting the legislature and the judiciary The plutocrats these were the leeches the sores in time body politic An organized band of robbers they had succeeded in doml nating legislation and in securing control of every branch of the nations In dustry crushing mercilessly and tile gaily all competition Jefferson turned abruptly and went up the wide steps of an Imposing white marble edifice which took up the space of half a city block A of French renaissance architecture with spire roofs round turrets and mullloned windows domlnatin fhe neighboring houses this magnificent home of the plutocrat with Its furnishings and art treasures had cost John Burkett Ryder nearly 10000000 It was one of the show places of the town and when the rubberneck wagons approached the Ryder mansion and the guides through their megaphones expatiated In awestricken tones on its external and hidden beau tics there was a general craning aof vertebrae among theseeing New Yorkers to catch a glimpse of the abode of the richest man In the world Only a few privileged ones were ever permitted to penetrate to the interior of this 10000000 home Ryder Was not fond of company he avoided apprehensionthat he feared the law only he usually found It inconvenient to answer questions iu court under oath The explicit instructions to the servants therefore pretexbeen approved by the lion Fiizroy Bagley Mr Ryders aristocratic prl vate secretary and to facilitate this preliminary Inspection there had been Installed between the library upstairs Bud the frnttfjljy r one of those ingen lous electric w tfngdmlccH such as are used In banks 6ii wulch a name Is hastily scribbled instantly transmitted elsewhere Immediately answered and the visitor promptly admitted or as quickly shown the door Jefferson did not have to ring at the paternal portal The sentinel within was at his post No one could approach that door without being sees and his arrival and appearance being signaled upstairs But the great mans son headed the list of the privileged ones so without ado the smartly dressed lunkey opened wide time doors and Jefferson was under his fathers roof Is may father Inr he demanded of the man No sir was the respectful answer Mr Ryder has gone out driving but Mr Bugley Is upstairs Then after a brief pause he added Mrs Ryder Is In too Jefferson went up the grand staircase hung on either side with fine pld pore traits and rare tapestries his feet sink Ing deep In tine rich velvet carpet On the first landing was a pieceot sculp hired marble of Inestimable worth seen In the soft warm light that sifted through a great pictorial stained glass window overhead the subject representing AJax and Ulysses contending for the armor of Achilles To the left of this at the top of another flight leading to the library was hung a full length portrait of John Burkett Ryder The ceilings here as In the lfiiYec hall were richly gilt ajidjidorned e with paintings by famous mouern artists When he reached this floor Jef ferson was about tp turn to the right and proceed direct to his mothers suit when he heard a voice near the library doorsIt was Mr Bagley giving Instructions to the butler The Hon Fitzroy Bagley d younger son of a British peer had left his country for his countrys good and in order to turn no honest penny which athomeAmericas foremost financier hoping to gather a few of the crumbs that fell from the rich mans table and disguis the menial nature of his position ling the high sounding title of pri secretary His Job called for a spy and a toady and he filled these requirements admirably Excepting with his employer of whom the stood In craven fear his manner was conde scendinjjly patronizing to all with whom he came in contact as if he were anxious to Impress on these American plebeians the signal honor which a Fitzroy son of a British peer did them in deigning to remain In their blarsted country In Mr Ryders absence therefore he house to suit himself ra1ithe and not Infrequently orders that were contradictory to those al r ady given by Mrs Rider Jefferson could not bear the sight of him In fact it was this mans con tinual presence In the house that had driven him to seek refuge elsewhere believed him to be scoundrel as beb rtalnliwas a cad Nor was his estimate of the English secretary far wrong THe man like his master was a grafter and the particular graft he was after now was either to make a marriage with a rich American girl or to so compromise her that the same end would be attained He was shrewd enough to realize that he bad little chance to get what he wanted In the open matrimonial market so he deter mined to attempt a raid and carry off an heiress under her fathers nose and the particular proboscis he had select ed was that of his employers friend Senator Roberts The senator and Miss Roberts were frequently at the Ryder house and In course of tiinc the aristocratic secretary and the d ffugh ter had become quite Intimate A flighty girl with no other purpose In life beyond dress and aihusement and having what she termed Va good time Kate thought It excellent pastime to flirt with Mr Bagley and when she discovered that he was serious In his attentions she felt flattered rather than Indignant After all she argued he was of noble birth If his two broth trs dled he would be peer of England and sITe had enough money for both He might not make a bad husband But she was careful to keep her own counsel and not let her father have any suspicion of what was going on She knew that his heart was set on her inarryingjefferson Ryder and she knew better than any one how impossible that dream was She herself liked Jefferson quite enough to marry him but if his eyes were turned in another direction and she knew all about his attentions to Miss Rossmoreshe was not going to break her heart about It So she continued to flirt secretly with the Hon Fltzroy while she still led the Ryders and her own father to think that she was Interested In Jefferson Jqrkins Mr Bagley was saying to the haler Mr Ryder will occupy the llbrnfyon his return See that he Is motdisturbedVery slrThe butler bowed and went downstairs The secretary looked up and saw Jefferson His face reddened and his manner grew nerv outs Hello Back from Europe Jefferson How Jolly Your mother will be delighted Shes In her room upstairs Declining to take the hint and gath ering from Bagleys embarrassed man ner that he wanted to get rid of him Jefferson lingered purposely When the butler had disappeared he said Thls house Is getting more and more like a barracks every day Youve got men all over the place One cant move a step without falling over one Mr Bagley drew himself up stiffly as he always did when assuming an air of authority Your fathers personality demands the utmost precaution he replied We cannot leave the life of the rich est and most powerful financier In the world at the mercy of the rabble What rabble T inquired Jefferson amusedThe common rabble the lower class thcrlffraff explained Mr Bagley Pshaw laughed Jefferson If our financiers were only half as respecta ble as the common rabble as you call them they would need no bars to their housesMr Barley sneered and shrugged his fihouldcrs Your father has warned me jugainsth your socialistic views Then lofty air he added For four yearS I wasf third groom of the bedchamber to the second son of Englands queeii I know my responsibilities I ut you jirel not groom of the bed chamber here retorted JefIersonI Whatever I am said Mr Bagley haughtily I am answerable to your father alone By the way Bagley asked Jeffer son when do you except father to re turoN want to see him Im afraid Its quite Impossible an swered the secretary with studied In solence He has three Important people to see before dinner Theres the national Republican committee and Sergeant Ellison of the secret service from Washington all here by appoint ment Its quite Impossible- I didnt ask you If It were possible I said I wanted to see him and I will see him answered Jefferson quietly but firmly and In a tone and manner opposlton his desk he added He started to enter the library when r the secretary who was visibly perturbed attempted to bar his way Theres some one in there he said In an undertone Someone waiting for your father Is there replied Jefferson coolly Ill see who it is with which he brushed past Mr Bagley and entered the library He had guessed aright A woman was there It was Kate Roberts Hello Kate Hon are you Jef ferson decided to say nothing of the Interrupted teteatete but mentally he resolved to spoil Mr Bagleys game and save Kate from her own folly On hearing his voice Kate turned and gave n little cry of genuine surprise Why Is It you Jeff I thought you were In Europe I returned yesterday he replied somewhat curtly He crossed over to Ills fathers desk where hesat down to scribble a few words while Mr Bag ley who had followed him in scowl Ing was matting frantic dumb signs to KateI fear I Intrude here said Jeffer son pointedlyOh no not at all replied Kate in some confusion I was wait Ing for my father How Js Paris she asked Lovely as ever he answered DId you have a good time she In quiredI It Immensely I never had a better one You probably were In good company she said significantly Then she added I believe Miss Rossmore was in Paris Yes I think he was there was his noncommittal answer To change the conversation which was becoming decidedly personal he picked up a book that was lying on his fathers desk and glanced at the title It was The American Octopus If youll excuse me Ill go and pay my filial respects upstairs said Jef ferson Ill see you again He gave Kate a friendly nod and without even glancing at Mr Bagley left the room The couple stood in silence for a few moments after he disappeared Then Kate went to the door and listened to r If I I fear I intrude here his retreating footsteps When sho was sure that he was out of earshot she turned on Mr Bagley indignantly You see what you expose me to Jefferson thinks this was a rendez vous Well It Was to a certain extent re plied the secretary unabashed Didnt you ask be to see you here Yes said Kate taking a letter from her bosom I wanted to ask you what this means My dear Miss RobertsKateI stammered the secretary vHow dare you address me in this manner when you know land Mr Ryder are engaged No one knew better that Kate that this was not true but she said it partly out or vanity partly out of a desire to draw out this Englishman who made such bold Jove to her Miss Roberts replied Mr Bagley loftily in that note I expressed my admiration my love for you Your en gagement to Mr Jefferson Ryder is to say the least a most uncertain fact There was a tinge of sarcasm in iris voice that did not escape Kate You must not Judge from appear ances she answered trying to keep up the outward show of Indignation which Inwardly she did not feel Jeff and I may hide a passion that burns like a volcano All lovers are not demonstrative you know The absurdity of this description as applied to her relations with Jefferson appealed to her as so comical that she burst Into laughter In which the see retary Joined Then why did you remain here with me when the senator went out with Mr Ryder senior he demanded- To tell you that I cannot listen to your nonsense any longer retorted the girl What he cried tncredulously You remain here to tell me that you cannot listen to me when you could easily have avoided listening tome without telling me sot Kate your cold ness Is not convincing You mean you think I want to listen to you she demanded I do he answered stepping for ward as If to take her In his arms Mr Bagley she exclaimed recoil tag A week ago he persisted you called me Fitzroy Once In an out burst of confidence you called me FitzYou hadnt asked me to marry you then she laughed mockingly Then edging away toward the door she waved her hand at him playfully and said teaslngly Good by Mr Bagley I am going upstairs to Mrs Ryder I will await my fathers return ln her room I think I shall be safer f botIupstairs passing through long and luxuriously carpeted corridors with paneled frescoed walls and hung with pllntingsroom He knocked Come in called ouTthe familiar voice He entered Mrs Ryder was busy at her escritoire looking over a mass of household accounts Hello mother Hows father he cried running up and huggln her in his boyish Impulsive way Ifefferson had always been devoted to his mother and while be deplored her weakness In permitting herself to be so completely under the domination of his father she had always found him an affectionate and loving son Mrs Ryder sighed while she looked her son over proudly in her heart she was glad Jefferson had turned out as he had Her boy certainly would never be a financier to be attacked in magazines and books Answering his question she said Your father is as well as those busy bodies in the newspapers will let him be Hes considerably worried Just now over that new book The Ameri can Octopus How dare they make him out such a monster Hes no worse than other successful men Hes richer thats all and It makes them Jealous Hes out driving now with Senator Roberts Kate is somewhere in the housein tne library I think Yes I found her there replied Jefferson dryly She was with that cad Bagley When Is father going to find that fellow out Oh Jefferson protested his moth er how can you talk like that of Mr Bagley He Is such a perfect gentle man His family connections atone should entitle him to respect He is certainly the best secretary your fa ther ever had Im sure I dont know what we should do without him He knows everything that a gentleman should And a good deal more I wager growled Jefferson Efe wasnt groom of the backstairs to Englands queen for nothing Then changing the topic he said suddenly Talking about Kate mother we have got to reach some definite understanding This talk abut1 my marrying her must stop I Intend tp take the matter up with father today 1 Oh of course more troubled re toneShe J wishes thwarted that she was never qfourRossmore was there was she not That has sot nothing to do with It replied Jefferson warmly He reSented Shirleys name being dragged maw the discussion Then more calmly hb went on Now mother be reasonable Listen I ose to live my own lIte Tl have already shown my father that Ij will not be dictated to and that I can earn my own living He has no right to force this marriage on me There has never been any misunderstanding on Kates part She and I understand each other thoroughly Well Jefferson you may be right from your point of view replied his mother weakly She Invariably ended by agreeing with the last one who ar gued with her You are of age of course Your parents have only oj moral right over you Only remember this It would be foolish of you to do anything now to anger your father His Interests are your Interests Dont do anything Jeopardize them Of course you cant be forced to marry a girl you dont care for but your father will be bitterly disappointed He had set his heart on this match He knows all about your infatuation for Miss Ross more and it has made him furious I suppose youve heard about her fa thcr outrageIret out and expose the authors I came here today to ask father to help meH You cam to ask your father to help you echoed his mother Incredulously Why not demanded Jefferson Is It true then that he Is selfishness In caruate Wouldnt he do that much to help a friend Youve come to the wrong house Jeff You ought to know that Your father Is far from bung Judge Ross mores friend Surely you have sense enough to realize that there are two reasons why he would not raise a fin hasIYes I see no wft mother You are right Then he added bitterly That has always been the trouble at home upagainstests One never hears a glimmer of fellow feeling never a word of human sympathy only cold calculation heart moneyOhof It I am going away where Ill hear no more of It His mother laid her hand gently on his shoulder Dont talk that way Jefferson Your father Is not a bad man tit heart You know that His life has been devoted to money making and he has made a greater fortune than any man living or dead He Is only what his life has made him He has a good heart and he loves you his only son But his business enemies an those he never was about to reply when suddenly a dozen electric bells sounded all ever the house Whats

this girl whom they were trying to foist on him Not that he thought she really cared for himhe was well aware that hers wasa nature that made it impossible to feel very deeply on any subjectbut the idea of thisIready made marriage was so foreign so revolting to the American mind He thought it would be a kindness to warn her against Bagley Dont be foolish Kate he said 1Iwas not blind just now in the library That man is no good As is usual when ones motives areI suspected the girl resented his interference She knew he hated Mr Bag iley and she thought it mean of him to try and get even in this way She stiffened up and replied coldly- I think I am able to look after my self Jefferson Thanks all the same He shrugged bis shoulders and made no reply She said goodby to Mrs Ryder who was again

but one of these days I want to have a serious talk with you in regard to your future This artist businesses all very well fpr n pastime but its not a career surely you can appreciate that for a young

had been doing There must be an understanding soon er or later Why uotnow The truth Is sir he began timidly Id like a little talk with you now It you can spare the time Ryder senior looked first at

counts In money The man who has possesses power over the man who haslt not and power is what the ambitious man loves most He stopped to pick up a book It was The American Octopus Turn ing again to his

Injustice How can my love of power do you an Injustice Because replied Jefferson you ex ert that power over your family as well as over your business associates You think and will for everybody In the
