of money about 8 oclock Friday night Ray was sitting alone in the room reading a magazine when a short stoutlymade clean shaven man of ruddy complexion wearing a dark colored overcoat entered and made a remark ina pleasant tone about the weather Ray agreed with him that it was disagreeable outside and asked him to have a seat Mie stranger sat down conversed on other topics fora minute or two ptjd

making a successful es cape before Ray could raise an alarmRay does not know just how much money was taken but it was about 1000 some of it being in 10 and 20 gold pieces The name of the stranger is not known but from the description fur nished to the police he is almost cer tain to be picked up before he trav- elsfarThis is probably the boldest holdup that has occurred in Lexington in twenty years unattended by the fir ing ofa shot or the shedding oft blood RAIN THROUGH THE COUNTRY VERY LIGHT Heaviest Fall in Immediate Vicinity of WinchesterDust is Laid t The rain fall of Friday and Fri day night what little there was seems to have been general through out the county but not enough to do very much good- Piobably the heaviest of it fell in the immediate vicinity of Winchester for reports from the different parts 4 f the county say that it was in many places only heavy enough to settle the dust Though little as it was the farmers say that it has done a great deal of good to the new sown wheat and rye that is just now beginning to grow The prospects for a good crop are now very flatteringas they believe they will have a favorable season from now on- To replenish the ponds and creeks u that have gone dry it would require several days of heavy down pour to do any good Not for fifty years has this country suffered as much from a drouth as it has from the present one and as a result the farmers will all lose heavily on all their crops this year especially on corn and hemp The hemp crop that was cut a few weeks ago is said to be the shortest crop here in years and will only average about onehalf of what it has in other years The tobacco also what little there was raised in the county by those who were not members of the Society of Equity will not be benefitted very much as the tobacco probably suf fered more than anything else and will not amount to very much SUPPLEMENTAL REGISTRATION The law provides that Monday Tuesday and Wednesday of the week before the election shall be supple mental registration days Any person who from any of the t following causes was prevented from registering can do so by going before the County Clerk and making oath Necessary absence

he lay down on the grass under an apple tree feeling that jie was very badly treated It was Very pleasant up there with the sun light flickering down through the Sreeh branches Billy gazed idly up

articles are quite as fashionable as silver ones now and the fact that they are more difficult to clean in no way detracts from their popularity It is not easy to remove stains from the mellow creamy ma terial without spoiling its tone Some useful hints on cleaning ivory are given herewith When the stains are very slight and do not seem to be permanent though they cannot be rubbed Off with a dry cloths wash the Ivory thoroughly in warm water and soap suds and then without drying it on a cloth place it in the bright sunlight for a few minutes This ex posure will usually remove the stains After they have disappeared wash the ivory again in soap and water rinse it thoroughly and dry carefully with a soft cloth Where the stains do not disappear entirely after contact with the suns rays the ivory should be washed again in soap and water then rinsed in clear water to which a little lemon juice has been added Care must be taken to have tare temperature of the water right as too great heat will injure the ivoryVery dark discolorations require the services of an expert to remove though one may be fairly successful by rubbing oxalic acid solution not too strong and applying this to the dark spots or streaks with a brush Afterward wash the ivory well in clear warm water and dry with absorbent cotton or a soft cloth and then leave in the sunshine or in a warm place to bleachThe acid of a lemon is not harmful to the most delicate piece of ivory intact the juice of a lemon can be ape plied with a mixture of cleansing pow der or whiting directly to the ivory without running any risk of spoiling its tone or texture It should how ever be removed quickly and the ivory thoroughly cleansed afterward with plenty of warm water Cabinet pieces that become discolored can be cleaned in this way and will be great ly improved in color and appearance When Collar Has Made a Line When the line of the collar is seen on the neck and will not come off it Is time to do something definite to remove the discoloration of the skin It is often effective to apply peroxide of hydrogen with a bit of absorbent cotton Dab it on at night aftermost a thorough washing of the neck In hot soap suds Leave it on all night and scrub again thoroughly with hot soap suds in the morning rinSing of with cold water Repeat this every night till the stain or line disappears Planning Girls Winter Dress When buying the material for your girls winter scbool dresses buy enough material to make bloomers to match each dress When made fall the bloomers will furnish enough body so that petticoats will not have

movement than do petticoats Keep Garments Mended Remember the truth of the old say iniA stitch in time saves nine and mend any worn places or torn parts in all garments before sendingthem to the

overcome by the following plan Give up greasy foods and heavy pastries Take daily exercise out of doors or when driving fill the lungs with good bloodpurifying air Breathe deep hold the breath and then exhale forcibly This expels the stagnant air in recesses of the lungs It is this stagnant air that lit erally poisons the system making bad blood which in time shows on the faco Also assist nature by external treat ment of the face Nearly every mod ern woman uses some face or cleans ing cream This Is more true in the cities than the country but women In smaller communitiesare beginning to realize the necessity of face cream House dust In the country is almost as bad for the complexion as is the dust of a big city Notice a sunbeam coming through the window into a room You will see thousands of small dust particles floating in thefall These get into the pores and work havoc unless ones eliminating System is unusual A cleansing or massage cream works down into the pores and

Idea In the Line of RefreshmentsHom- Made Cake an Always Appre elated Delicacy An ideal spot for the tea table when one expects three or four friends is the drawing room The dining room is reserved for large afternoon teas or when ten or more guests are ex pected All the paraphernalia for boiling water and making the tea should be on the table so that the brew may be perfectly fresh and with water of the necessary temperature- It is always a charming scene even to other women to watch a dainty hostess prepare tea from the lighting of the alcohol lamp to the final bit of lemoa or pouring of cream To a man it suggests the delightful side of domesticity and a clever girl wishing to marry should never lose a chance to let a desirable party behold her making teaprovided she does it gracefully Sweet Sandwiches Sandwiches of all sorts are the best possible accompaniment to tea Crispy toast and little cakes come second Toast is often the most agreeable to the taste but it is so seldom truly hot and is so greasy with butter that it Is by no means an ideal thing to handle while making a call Sweet sandwiches are new and may be made from thin slices of stale or rather tough cake having a layer of ground Or pounded nuts or nuts pounded fine in a mortar and held to the cake by the thinnest possible layer of jam marmalade or jelly A bit of preserved ginger placed at intervals on slices before they are laid together is delicious Maraschino cher ries cut in quarters may also be used When sandwiches of different kinds are served on the same plate they should be so arranged and marked that the guest may choose according to his or her taste A sweet sandwich having cherries Inside should have half a cherry on one corner and that with preserved ginger should be similarly marked with the ginger Dolly Over Plate Nasturtium leaves make delicious green sandwiches and a little lemon juice added to sardines in sandwiches enhances their flavor Sandwiches made of greens may be marked with a bit of the leaves pro truding ora nasturtium flower or a sprig of parsleyIWhen a number of guests are ex pected and there are several plates of these dainties each plate may have the nature of its burden indicated with the nasturtium leaves or flowers or fruitA doily should be placed over plates under sandwiches but bread and butter and cake look better without besides when the loaf of cake Is cut the knife would ruin the doily Homemade cake is always a deli cacy even when of the simplest sort and the truly hospitable hostess will see to it when expecting many call ers that a loaf or two Is provided For small informal tea serving if homemade cake is served several pieces only should be arranged on a plate Brownies Two eggs onehalf cupful of butter one teaspoonful of vanilla one cupful of sugar onehalf cupful of flour two squares melted chocolate one cupful of broken walnut meats First beat eggs together then cream butter and sugar add to beaten

the ice itnecessary Turn out on platter to serve and sprinkle nuts over the inverted mold Making Sandwiches In making sandwiches bear in mind that all crusts are removed with a sharp knife and that butter just melt ed but not piping hot can be spread with a fine paint brush much better than firmer butter with a Knife Also at every house furnishing counter you can buy fancy cutters for making sand wiches more attractive And lastly sandwiches that must stand should be wrapped in moist cloths Japanese Sandwich This is made of any kind of leftover fish baked or boiled Pick out every bit of

which Tiffin lovers of theatrical music are rarely accorded at home and more seldom yet do they have the opportunity of enjoying an entertainment of the high class which the John Dunsmore Opera Co gave at the Grand Thursday night in the presentation of the famous RossineBeaumarchais comic opera The Barber of Seville The company comprises a galaxy ofoperatic stars whose solo work was especially noteworthy Mme Monti Baldini as Rosina was deli cious her fine voice winning instant favor with the audience Her II Bacio in the singing lesson in the third act was perhaps her best effort at least it earned for her an ovation that an actress seldom receives on a Tiffin stage John Dunsmore as Don Basilio not only thrilled his audience with his magnificent bass voice but also furnished the lions share of the comedy uid likewise re ceived an ovation both in the second act and in the third at the conclu sion of the rendition of The Cel larers Toast Roman Klekko as Figaro the barber divided

these best of nil hardy herbaceous perennials Anybody can grow peonies and you can get the most glorious results with onehalf the trouble that you would have to expend in getting roses that were merely good I believe the peony will become the typical flower of our American gardens and occupy the place with us that the rose does in England or the fleurdelis in France It certainly has no competitor when the standard is the best results for the labor expended Do you ask Can I grow peonies I ask you Do apples grow in your neighborhood tIWherever the apple will grow there too you can plant the peony Having once set it out you can shake hands with yourself con fident in the knowledge that it is there to stay without any necessity of disturbance for twenty years at least Sometimes a clump will remain undisturbed for fifty years No won der it gives that comfortable old fash ioned garden atmosphere that every body wants around the home The up to date peony fancier who wants to keep his plants at the highest standard all the time and does not mind the trouble will dig up the clumps sep arate the roots and replant them doing all this in September every seven or eight years Perhaps you have an old peony clump in your garden that has died out in the center so that it forms an irregular ring Dig it up now divide it and replant Twoyears from now you will have such peonies as you never dreamed of Let me tell you how I plant my peo nies because I am sure that you will want to buy some and do likewise To begin with let me say that al though the plant will grow in any reasonably fertile soil yet like ev erything else it will pay you well for extra attention to Its wants Ideal peony soil is a heavy moist loam Some people have made the mistake ofIthinking that because the peony take up a great quantity of water and because it prefers a moist loam it is also more happy in a continuously wet soil This Is true with certain llmita TIm CHINESE PEONY j tins It likes constantly moist soil but it must be well drained never stagnant The Ideal situation is the side of a slope leading down to wet fDig a fork or spade set the plant into it then cover with soil and press the whole firmly with your hands and your feet to make everything firm and to be sure that every part of the root is In close contact with the soil Wa ter it then go away and wait till spring bearing in mind Just one thing If in your latitude zero weather is the rule in winter cover the bed with some leaf mold muck stable litter or anything to prevent the frost from getting out after it once gets in Autumn Notes Most trees are better planted in spring but It is often a good idea to buy in fall and heel in well so as to have them ready for early planting in springThe asparagus tops should bo cut oft and burned before the ripened seed scatters Some persons destroy the seed bearing plants entirely It Is a good Idea to cover the plants with coarse manure before winter to be dug Into the son in spring This prevents deep freezing- A furnace heated cellar is a poor place to keep most vegetables and fruits By packing in sand which may be sprinkled with water occasionally the drying effects of the air may be partially overcome and the produce keeps better Hedges KwtHnarily require from four to five years to become attractive and useful while a rough stone or concrete wall may be well covered with ivy in two summers Ampelopsls or Boston Ivy Is undoubtedly the best suited for this purpose being avery rapid grow erg and absolutely hardy flourishing under the most unfavorable conditions its shioyi leaves ate not injured by the dust and In the autumn turn to a bril liant orange and scarlet hue There Is DO better time in the year than early October to set out new plants which gives them a chance to get well rooted before the cold weather overtakes them The young plants may be pur chased of any nursery at 15 cents each or 10 per hundred When planting they should be

with Neergard worried Neergardfinallymatter as a fixed policy In which Sel iwyn had been expected to participate at some indefinite date the arrange meat seemed only to cement the mans confidential companionship with Ger ald This added to Selwyns restlessness and one day in early spring he had long conference with Geralda most unsatisfactory one Gerald for the first time remained reticent and when Selwyn presuming on the cordial un derstanding between them pressed Boots Lansing andSelwyniy But neither tact nor caution seemed to serve now Gerald more and more engrossed in occult social affairs of which he made no mention to Selwyn was still amiable and friendly even at times cordial and lovable but he was too longer frank or even communica itlve and wyn fearing to arouse Jdni again to sullenness or Derhan f i j l 8V WJ V toIpress advances toward the regaining of his confidence Gerald and Neergard left the office together frequently now They often lunched uptown Whether they were In each others company evenings Sel wyn did not know for Gerald no longer volunteered information as to his whereabouts or doings And all this hurt Selwyn and alarmed him too for he was slowly coming to the conclusion that be did not like Neer gard that he would never sign arti cles of partnership with him and that even his formal assoclateshlp with the company was too close a relation for his own peace of mind But on Ger alds account he stayed on He did not like to leave the boy alone for his sisters sake as well as for his own Matters drifted that way through early spring He actually grew to dislike both Neergard and the business of Neergard Co for no particular rea son perhaps but In general though he did not yet care to ask himself to be more precise in his unuttered criti cisms But Neergard broke his word to one morning before he left his rooms at Mrs Greeves lodgings to go downtown Percy Draymore called him up on the telephone and as that over fed young mans usual rising hour was notoriously nearer noon than 8 oclock it surprised Selwyn to be asked to re- maIn In his rooms for a little while un til Draymore and one or two friends could call on him personally concern ing a matter of importance First there was Percy Draymore overgroomed for a gentleman fat good humored and fashionable one of the famous Draymore family notod solely for their money and their tight grip on

carries his nodding as he- walksWe heard last night said Dray more how that fellowhow Neer gard had been tampering with our heIbeen playing us and I frankly ad mit to you that were a worried lot of near sports Thats what this dismal matinee signifies and weve come to ask you what itall really means Why did you not call on Mr Neer gard asked Selwyn coolly Yet he was taken completely by surprise for he did not know that Neergard had gone ahead and secured options on his own responsibility whio practically amounted to a violation cc the truce between them I know nothine about it I did not know that air JSeergara had acquired control of the property I dont know what he means to do with it And gentlemen may I ask why you feel at liberty to come to me Instead of going to Mr Neergard A desire to deal with one of our own kind I suppose returned Dray more bluntly And for that matter he said turning to the others we might have known that Captain Sel wyn could have had no hand In and no knowledge of such an underbred and dirty Harmon plucked him by the sleeve but Draymore shook him off his little piggish eyes sparkling What do I care he sneered losing his temper Were In the clutches of a vulgar skinflint Dutchman and hell wring us dry whether or not we curse him out Didnt I tell you that Philip Selwyn had nothing to do with it If he had and I was wrong our journey here mightas well have been made to Neergards office fOr any man who will do such a filthy thing One moment Drayniorc cut In Sel wyn and his voice rang unpleasantly If you are simply complaining because you have been outwitted go ahead but If you think there has been any really dirty business In this mat ter go to Mr Neergard Otherwise be- Ing his associate I shall not only decline to listen but also ask you to leave my apartments Captain Selwyn is perfectly right observed Orchil coollyuDo you think Draymore that it Is very good taste in you to come into a mans place and begin slanging and cursing a member of his firm for crooked work 1 Besides added Mottlyuits not crooked Its only contemptible And to Selwyn who had been restlessly fac ing first one then another We came it was the Idea of several among usto put the matter up to you which was rather foolish because you couldnt have engineered the thing and remaln ed what we k lowyo for be So Wltr eaid selwyd brusquely I ranot dm onemomemt

humoredly Fane burst into a sonorous laugh and wagged his neck saying Not at all Not at all Your reward for having the decency to stay out of the deal Is an invitation from us to come In and he squeezed Into a jelly by Mr Neer gard Haw HawS And so one by one with normal or Informal but evidently friendly leave taking they went away And Selwyn followed them presently walking until he took the subway at Fortysecond street for his office He went into his own office pocketed his mall and still wearing hat and gloves came out again Just as Gerald was leaving Neergards office He walked leisurely into NeergardB office and seated himself uSo you have committed the firm to the Siowltha deal he Inquired coolly pasthimrseem to be interested In the scheme so I went on without you Tm springing It for my personal account Is Mr Enroll in it said that it was a private matter replied Neergard but his manner was affableI so It appears to me llko a matter quite personal to you and characteristic of you Mr Neergard And that being established I am now ready to dissolve whatever wry loose ties have ever bound me in any asso elation with this company and your selfNeergards close set black eyes shift ed a point nearer to Selwyns The sweat on his nose glistened Why do you do this r he asked slowly Has anybody offended you Do you really wish to know Yes I certainly do Captain Selwyn Very well Its because I dont like your business methods I dont Uke several other things that arc happen ing In this office Its purely a difference of views and that Is enough explanation Mr Neergard I think our views may very easily coincide You are wrong they could not I ought to have known that when I came back here And now I have only to thank you for receiving me at my own request for a six months trial and to admit that I am not qualified to cooperate with this kind of a firm That said Neergard angrily amounts to an Indictment of thQ firm If you express yourself in that manner outside the firm will certainly resent- It My personal taste will continue to govern my expressions Mr Neergard and I believe will prevent any further business relations between us And as we never had any other kind of relations I have merely to arrange the details through an attorney Neergard looked after him in silence The tiny beads of sweat on his nose united and rolled down in a big shining drop and the sneer etched on his broad and brightly mottled fea tures deepened to a snarl when Sel wyn had disappeared For the social prestige which Sel wyns name had brought the firm he bad patiently endured his personal dis like and contempt for the man after he found he could do nothing with him In any way He had accepted Selwyn purely in the hope of social advantage and with the knowledge that Selwyn could have done much for him after business hours if not from friendship at least from Interest or a lively sense of bene fits to come For that reason he had Invited him to participate In the valu able Siowitha deal supposing a man as comparatively poor as Selwyn would not only jump at the opportuni ty but also prove sufficiently grateful later And he had been amazed and disgusted at Selwyns attitude But he had not supposed the man would sever his connection with the firm if he Neergard went ahead on his own responsibility It astonished and irri tated him It meant instead of selfish or snobbish indifference to his own social ambitions an enemy to block his entrance Into what he desIredthe society of those made notorious In the columns of the dally press He was fairly on the outer boundary now though still very far outside But a needy gentleman inside was already compromised and practically pledged to support him for his meeting with Jack Ruthven through Gerald had proved of greatest importance He had lost gracefully to Ruthven and In doing It had taken that gentlemans measure And though Ruthven him self was a member of the Siowltha Neergard had made no error in taking him secretly Into the deal where to gether they were now In a position toexplolt the club from which Ruth yen of course would resign In time to escape amassessment himself To be continued

of oats but of all kinds of grain as well The reason for this is that new oats as a rule are not thoroughly dry and consequently weigh more than the old grain so that if they are purchased at the same price per bushel the purchaser does not receive as much for his money When fed to horses they are somewhat laxative In effect and because of this have more or less of a serious in fluence on working horses They also have a tendency to cause them to sweat freely While this is true of its every season it is especially true xthis year as the oats crop matured very slowly and even after the crop was harvested in many localities It i was a very difficult matter to dry it properly Where the crop has been threshed the grain was frequently wet t or damp so that In many instances it never was dry Some farmers have been forced to use their new oats on account of not having any old grain left over But where both old and new oats are hadj It Is much better to mix and feed them r together than to feed the old oats un til they are all fed and then feed altogether from the new crop 1iWHAT IS PHOSPHATE And Why It Is Needed In Many Soils Phosphorus or phosphate as it Is commonly called Is one of the most essential elements of fertility It is especially needed in forming the seed of all grain Rook phosphate Is com posed of the remains of ancient fish collected in some unknown way ages ago It is needed on our western lolls because our yield of grain Is constantly growing lighter We must spend some thought and money to rebuild the elements of fertility we have been taking out for 60 years or more says Hoards Dairyman As phosphate calledtmanure where it will be subject to heat and ferment in order to make Jt yield up its phosphorus to the soil This diffi culty Is overcome by treating the rock with sulphuric acid which sets free the phosphoric acid at once Butt e acid phosphate costs more FARM NOTES Cowpea straw Is an excellent rough 4age and nearly as valuable as the hay
