break fatted nine days before WIth a new restraint between us I did not tell McKnight I wondered afterward If he had suspected it sawhbn look tag hard at the gatepost which had ftgqred in one of our mysteries but he asked no questions Afterward he grew almost taciturn for him and let me do most of the talking We opened th ont gate of the carter place and wen lowly up the walk Two ragged yo gsters

We spelled it out slowly Now Hotchkiss announced I make it something like this The p is one of two things plstolyou remember the little pearlhandled at fair belonging to the murdered man cr is It

did not glance at McKnight I felt that the hands with which I was gathering up the bits of torn paper were shaking It seemed to me this astute lIttle man was going drag in the girl in spite of me CHAPTER XVIII A New World Hotchkiss jotted down tho bits of telegram and rose Well he said weve done some thing Weve found where the mur derer left the train we know what day he went to Baltimore arid

doubt fully why did he collapse when he abqqtthoagent sent You remember they tried tp countermand it and withsome ex citement We wIll ask him those queF1OIis when we set him McKnight said We were on the unrailed front perch by that time and Hotchkiss had put away his notebook The mother of the twins followed us to the stepg Dear me she explained volubly and to think I was forgetting to tell you I put the young man to bed with a spice poultice on his ankle my mother always was a firm believer in spice poultices Its wonderful what they will do In croup And then I took the children and went down to see the wreck It was Sunday and the mister had gone to church hasnt missed a day since he took the pledge nine years ago And on the way I met two people D man and a woman They looked haltdead so I sent them right hero for breakfast and some soap and water I always say soap Is better than liquor after shock Hotchkiss was listening absently McKnight was whistling under his breath staring down across the field to wherea break in the woods showed a half dozen telegraph poles the flue of the railroad lilt must have been 12 oclock when we got back I wanted the children to see everything because it isnt likely theyll lever see tnothei wreck like that Rows ofrAbout 12 oclock I broke hiand what then The young man upstairs was awake she went on hammering at his door like all possessed And it was lock d on the outside She paused to enjoy her sensation I would like to see that lock Hotchkiss said promptlY but for some reason the woman demurred I will brine the key doWn she said and dls appeared When she returnedsh e held out an ordinary door key of the cheapest variety We had tobreak the lock she unteered and the key didnt turn u for two days Then one of the twIns found the turkey gobbler tryIng to swallow It It has been washed since she hastened to assure Hotchkiss who showed an inclination to drop i You dont think he locked the doe himself and threw the key out of th-

Profltab1eMixst Have Proper Shelter With Exercise t = 11 PolandChina Sow and Litter By w it UNDERWOOD Iu raIsing pigs therq are several things Very essential which are dim cult to secure in the right dejree in the winter time and which sometime make the winter litter rather costly Hogs are great lovers of warmth mid they must haveS It for their eco nomlca growth This has been fully demonstrated by the experiment stations in the different fattdifing trials The cost o the grain in seyeral Instances was almost double with out sIdfceding as compared fwith a warm shelter an other things being as near ly equal as was possible Warmth is eve t more of a necessity to the suckling pig and to ob thin that wazmtli and give the little fellow sufficient amount of exercise is where the difficulty comes in It Is an easy matter to make the bed warm enough but asso n as the pIg leaves the nest for exercise out In the open It becomes chilly and soon returns to the warm bed Not taking exercise sufficient to keep it from be- coi1ng too fat thumps foll wand de4th ensues An abundance of exer thumpsInalIthe milk and other foods they can eat lI raising winter pigs there are six really very important things to betaken Into consIderation Warmth exercise good feed ventilated quar ters sunshine and good blood In order tp hare these a warm and quite roomy building which will make ventilatiOn easier and allow the pigs to play Without goIng out 1p the open is necessary When the weather is RAISING FUEL FOR HOUSEHOLD l Systematic PlanUng and Ctiltiva- Uon of Forest Trees Is Branch of Agriculture get In Infancy By R D BUCKRAM Salem Mass A very small acreage of woodland If properly handled cfln be made to yield the necessary fuel for the house hold from year to year and yet maIn taln ap average growth or even increase In value The tree growth of the woodlot should be encouraged In every possible way All dead wood should be con sclentiously removed and added to the woodpile It will serve well as excel lent kindling at least and does away with one of the chief sources of die ease among growing W Qd It has been proven that a very large percentage of all the ailments ot forest trees arises from the decaying dead wood lying about then Thlmllng correctly Is a second reo- qulslte to making the woodlot most profitable Where the standing grOwth Is too close all arecompelled to suf f r fop the lack of air and light Hence some can well be removed to the belJeflt of the remainder here an area ot any dimensions has been laid bare Jt should be ra seeded Immediately It the second growth does not start satisfactorily It is as poor economy to allow parts sufficiently warm they should bOoqt of doors as much as possible especially when the sun sh1nes Plenty ot sunshine Is the greatest disinfectant and Invigorator known Some ygars ago 1 had a couple ot litters come early In the winter The weather ws very cold and for want ota better place to keep them than the one in which they were farrowed- I penned up a little corner of the cow stable lii which were kept at night ao head of cattle The building Was 35 bY6 feet and when closed at night with the cattle In It was quite comfortable This proved to be at most an Ideal place for the pIgs They werO given fresh bedding evpry night and a fresh supply of bed tllug put In every day Those pigs grew exceedingiy fast Under farm conditions It is oubtfulproposltlon to attempt to raise many winter pigs with good results but under specIal conditions a few litters maybe made profitable The greatest obstacle Is to provide enough atnsp ce for the pigs to run about freely wIthout betoming ebtlled for lack of sufficient sunshine Scours and thumps often cause very serious losses among young pigs The former is caused usually by overfeed lug by providing badly spoiled feed by an abrupt change of ration or by a change In feed that attects the milk ot the dam The latter Is generally brought about by overfeeding and lack of exercise n illustration Is shown herewith of a PolandChina sow with her litter of pigs This bro d put on fat rapidly are do lle and easily handled ot the woodlot to lie iIle as any other portion of the farm The increase of the more valuable trees should be encouraged such as the oak pine hickory and ash Some trees are of no value save as stove wood and are poor even at that Yet strtnge enough at the start they are the most vigorous and always sue ceed at making the most rapid growt- 1at the start thus holding their own all the expense of their competitors There are weeds among trees as well as among

And Take Steps Toward Check ing the Low Sales of Tobacco in Burley Markets The American SocIety of Equity the National Tobacco Growers andI tion convened lD this city today to steps toward checkmg the low sales ot tobacco upon the leading markets of the Burley District A report from the inner circles of the American Society of Equity is to the effect that the Equity toipool cannot be formed upon the unsold 1910 crop the bulk of which is still in the barns of the tobacco growers an effort wIll be made to form a pool on the 1911 Burley output In thoeventI the organizations do not 1911 pool the farmers will be induced to plant dark tobacco or cultivate other agricultural products instead of Burley The Equity Society claims that It can form a pool with a reat deal less cost than that charged by the l3urleySociety and effect a more substantial pool Delegates will be elected at the mass meet ings here to day and tomorrow to a district meeting to be held in Bowling Green i when some definite Po1orthe Question of pooling Equitable prices for tobacco cannot J be obtained only through a pool andif the tobacco growers desIre 200 prices it is to their interest to join the pool The low prices for which tobacco is selling on the leading markets m the Burley district are due s lelyto the dumpers or the nonpoolers If the tobacco rowers remain idle and fail to oppose the tobacco trusts they become a victim or a prey to the tobacco manu facturers The low prices of the pres ent year compared with the highpricoe- of last year ought to convince any tobacco grower of the necessity and ef fectiyeness of a well organIzed pool The time has arrived to form pools on all agricultural products to place the farmer in defensive attitude and to oppose all trusts and if the agricul turists neglect or fail to fight for theIr ovn interests they wIll shortly be con fronted with the deplorable condItions which existed m i902 and 1903 A pool to be effective must be formed by the farmers as a whole and when they do not enter the pool they not only rob themselves but perpetrate an in jury upon their neighborsElizabeth town MIrrorjThe greatest danger from influenzaI is of Its resulting in

on the love subject A great many men are so They can discuss politics the musical glasses the drama literature art science and the classIcs fluently with a young woman but they shy away from the real heart interest like an aeroplal1e dodging a church steeple Why Prudence had Inveigled Alfred Into long walks with her in the silvery moonlight ot spring and the gol den moonlight of summerall to no vail Once In August she was boat- Ing with him and she had pretended- to be afraid the boat would capsize What would you do if it did she asked him- Naturally she expected hIm to reply that he would plunge in after her and save her or perish in the attempt Such a heroic remark as that would ot course lead into a more passionate avowal of his reasons for being will Ing to lay down his young life for her and then of course he could easily hopskip right along to a request that since be was willing to die for her sJ1c might consider favorably a propo sition to share his Ute with him or words to that effect But when she asked him with a tremulous shake in her lovely voice and with a world of faith and trust do her lustrous eyes What would you do It the boat capsized He never even stopped

hav o sworn hQ high heaven and the marching stars andi the sun and moon and sky that never again should that wonderful hand know the wearying stress of toll What did Alfred do He looked nt the bUster appraising lywithout taking those taper fingers in hisand he said Stick a needle under It from one ride and lot the waterout then put a little peroxide on It tomorrow Shades of Romeo Memories ot Dante

Where He Got lt and to reciprocate In advance Al ways always a man must reciprocate In advance to a lady So Alfred might have been seen steppIng hesitatingly up the steps of the home on Christmas He
