toIthe presidents recent letter regarding labor He said The president declares that he Is willing to do everything for labor ex cept to do what Is wrong He virtu tisapplaud this resolute determination on the part of the president to adhere to the right but if he knew his tel low men a little better he would not feel so lonesome on this subject Ho is not the only one In tho country who desires to do right There are really a great many good people in this country who are just as anxious to do right as the president but many of t them differ from him as to what is right and they are not willing to adI merelybecauseThe president seems to think it would be wrong to establish a depart ment of labor with a secretary of la bor in the cabinet I beg to differ from the president on this too and I believe that a majority of the Amer ican voters differ from him theydesireing to give labor representation in the cabinet He believes it would bs wrong to amend the law against a trusts so as to exclude the labor or ganizations from the operation of that law I differ from him and I believe a majority 6f the American people do The president believes It would be wrong to limit the issue of an injunc tion as is proposed in the Democratic platform We believethat the injunc tlon should not be issued in a labor dispute merely because there is a la bor dispute We believe that no in junction is justified in a labor dispute unless the conditions are such as would warrant an injunction it there were no labor dispute I believe that a majority of the American people agree with us in this The president thinks it would bt wrong to grant a trial by jury in iycase of direct contempt but I bellev eoIas much entitled to the protection of trial by jury as a man accused of s crime It is a pure assumption on the groundles9flegislation set forth in the Demo cratic platform desire it because they are willing to do wrong The troublewith the president is that he does i not recognize the

Department Setting a Line on To liaccoCroA t t The great improvement recently noted in the accuracy hind reliability of the crop reports of the Bureau of Statisticsof the Department of Agriculture especially with reference to leaf tobacco lends a special inter est to a statement about to be issued the Department outlining the Methods employed in securing and compiling the data upon which the final official figures are based The data used in the preparation of the monthly reports are obtained through a special field service and corps of State statistical agents and correspondentsships and individual firms Seventeen Agents The special field service consists of seventeen traveling agents each assigned to report for a separate group of States These agents are t specially qualified by statistical training and practical knowledge of crops They systematically travel over the districts assigned to them carefully note the development of each crop keep in touch with best informed opinion and render written and telegraphic reports monthly and at suchother times as required Reports For State There are for ty five State statisti sal agents each of whom reports for his own State and maintains a corps of correspondents entirely independ entof those reporting directly to the Department at Washington These correspondents renort each month directly to the State agent These reports are then tabulated and weighed according to the relative products t or area of the given crop in each county represented and are summar ized by the State agent There are approximately 2800 counties of agricultural importance in the United States in each ofwhich t the Department has a principal coun ty correspondent who maintains an organization of several assistants correispondents are forwarded directly to this Department at Washington In a similar manner in the townsihps and voting precincts in whicfarmingo- perations are extensively carried on special correspondents are maintain ed who also report directly to the Department Finally at the end of the growing season a large number of individual farmers report on th results of their own operations during t the year f First Tobacco Report The first tobacco crop report is prepared June 1 and shows the acre ace and condition as observed on thin r date The reports for July August September and October record the condition of the tobacco crop while the November report includes the average yield per acre by States In December a carbfullycorrectedfin al summary is published showing acreage yield per acre average price received by the grower and total vajue of the crop Atiintervals during the summer the expert special agent having charge of the tobacco crop prepares a sum mary of conditions by types This feature of the reports has been found to be of great value as it enables growers and the trade to differentiate accurately the production of different where more than one variety iisgrown in a State Leaks in Department From time to time leaks have oc curred in the Department by which special inteersts have received advance information concerting the condition of crops which has been used for speculative purposes It is believed that the system recently adopted makes it impossible for any thing of the kind to occur All of the reports from the State statistical agents as well as those of the special field agents are sent to the Secretary of Agriculture in specially PrePfired envelopes ad dnssed in red ink with the letter lA plainly marked on them By an arrangement with the postal authorities these envelopes are delivered to the Secretary of Agriculture in sealed mall pouches The pouches are op en dortlyBy the Secretary or Assist ant Secretary and the reports with seals unjbrol eh are

shots from some distance at sea A boat was launched and sped with all possible energy to the place from which the sounds seemed to have come but it returned without having heard or seen anything further Yet the sea man who had been left behind on guard declared solemnly that In the mean time he had heard near shore unmis takable cries for help from drowning persons The bluejackets themselves are most Inclined to regard the whole matter as supernatural and the voices as spectral Scientists say that it is possible however that such sounds may be audible in remarkable distinct ness where there is a high coast though they may come from a great distance especially when persons there are placed accidentally so that behind them rises a wall which receives the sound and throws it back On sumo coasts that are often visited by fogs a legend of so called fog shots has acquired vogue These are said to hate their origin for some rea son not yet fathomed within the mass es of fog Acoustic phenomena are found of such a strange kind that the investigation of them may be said to be still very far from conclusive The most inexplicable secret lies perhaps not in the occurrence of sounds the origin of which may be reached only with great difficulty but in their dis appearance and in absolute silence when audible nolces should be expected Many a ship has been wrecked because its signals of distress loud and uninterrupted have remained Inaudi ble although only a very short dis tance from the coast But again it happens that In such an Instance the very same signals become audible at a far greater distance where they provoke great excitement A remarkable example of this was produced by the firing of guns by the Eng lish fleet in the roadstead at Spithead on Feb 1 1001 as a token of mourn ing for Queen Victoria This was not heard at all by many persons close at hand who were listening for it while at places much farther away it was heard plainly The direction of the wind failed to explain this aberration of the waves of sound Chicago News PEGGYS ADVICE Why It Suddenly Changed From Ex cellent to Worthless It was the era of the first Quincy baby and the attention of the entire

STANDS y FOR OVER TEN YEARS SUmmer Showers and Winter Storms Y Effect Structure But t Little 1WELLESLEY Mass Oct 26 The frailest house in New England perhaps is one which was construct ecl principally of thick paper and which has for ten years stood summer showers and winter storms The structure is owned by George L Abell of Wellesley who built it him self during his spare time for a summer home A strange part of the history of the paper house is that Mr Abell and his family lived in it all one winter finding it fully as- t warm as their modern home in the centre of the town The louse is situated in the heart of the woods i of Ridge Hilla few miles from Wellesley College 4w A love of country life and a de sire for the freedom of isolation were the prime factors which led us to build our home rough though it is said Mr Abell In the summer of 1896 he had an opportunity to buy twothirds fan acre of land covered with fifteen or twenty years7 growth of chesnuts oaks birches and maples It was sit uated three miles from the nearest railroad station and thirteen miles from where he was then employed The cost of the land 50 had been saved This was paid over leaving 1J c nothing with which to build except what ctfuld be saved out ofa sal ary of 15 per week The firsts sum y mer he got the use of an old farm house a quarter ofa mile distant Here he lived spending all his spare time in clearing a portion of his land cutting stove wood and exca vatin for a cellar Planning originally to put up merely a tent for a summers outing he decided to put a floor under it By the following spring he had saved 60 and then various plans were considered He finally decided to build- a framework of very light construe i tion twelve feet high in the center v pitching to five feet at the sides and thirty feet square This was not to I be boarded in but covered outside and inside with sheating paper and- painted The 60 was expended for material and tools Estimating how much of his sal ary he could spare weekly to carry- on work on his house Mr Abell with the help of a friend who volunteered his services working spare moments completed the structure in about twelve days working time This however covered about four months elapsed time When 150 had been spent Mr Abell moved his family into the house which then consisted principally of four walls a leaky roof and a floor this time he had estab lished credit with a lumber dealer and had no difficulty in securing ma terial when needed paying when con venient At the end of the following sum mer the house had been partitioned off a chicken yard built fruit trees and bushes planted and considerable land cleared Mr Abell then started in business for himself in Wellesley two miles distant and the real strug gle began His income became un certain but his credit was good The louse had now cost 500 including the land and Mr Abell had perform ed most of the work himself SHOW THE COFFEE HABIT ORIGINATED a TUrkish Ambassador First Served Louis XIV in the Year 1669 It is but useless repetition to say that there is a vast difference the world over in the preparation of coffee No two places seem to prepare this delicious drink in the same way It is weak here and strong there boiled in one place and cooked in- V another black and roily brown and- muddy There may be a great many ways of making coffee but it is only with the new electric percolators that one can get the most delicious cup of this delightful beverage ever prepared since the ancient Arab accidentally discovered the secret The coffee- made a la electricity retains t the sweet aroma of the berry its delicious flavor its subtle strength and its beautiful color It was in 1669 that the Turkish ambassador to the court of Louis XIV served his native drink ca noveto his friendslittle dreaming that he was introducing the coffee- habit so irresistible to the civilized world of today He began by serv i ing the new drink in little cups to the few intimates who gathered daily in 4I his rooms They became so infatuated with it they could talk of noth irlgelse and soon all the ladies and ient1menof Versailles developed a Vreat affection for a sip of the de 7cipiis beverage It was the same t j l i- l ft thick syrup you get in the East to day The first coffee imported into Prance cost oyei 16 a pound an immense sum in those days Naturally it was only for the wealthy The Armenian who about 1680 op ened the first cafe in Paris had to serve a liquid within the price of the middle class This he was able to do by greatly diluting with milk or waterthus evolving cafe au lait and cafe noir These mixtures im mediately jumped into popularity But even they were beyond the purse of the poor man The success of the Armenians venture stimulatMa crippled Frenchman to provide himself with a charcoal stove and a huge copper not with wliich he strolled about the streets crying Cahve Cahve He was out to catch the trade of the very poor man and he could afford to sell his cahve cheap as he had first negotiated with the Armenian for the coffee grounds that had already done service at the St Ger main des Pres establishment The secondhand coffee is what you get in any small cafe in Paris today between whose proprietor and the chefs of tlie large hotels and restau rants the same deal is still made DIVINE AUTHORSHIP OF BIBLE IS THEME Mr Srygley Preaches Strong Sermon at the Fairfax Street Church of Christ The sermon Sunday morning at Fairfax street Church of Christ was on the divine authorship of the Bible Mr Srygley said in part that the greatest evidence of the divinity of the Bible was the book itself He argued that the Bible was either the production of man unaided by his Creator or that it was as all Chris tians believe the work of men guided by the inspiration of God It was a principle of human nature that men never severely coiidcmiied his own conduct The hypocrite is never severe on hypocracy nor the liar on lying Drunkards were never severe in their denunciation of drunkedness and dram dnmkers even among Churchmen had never condemned the moderate drinker Law of Human Nature- S was a law of human nature that men never condemned their own con duct Then with this rule of conduct can we say any man has ever lived who could or would have written the Bible just as we have it There is no being good enouph to have been the author of the book we call the Bible except God No church that exists today would pro duce a book like the Bible Mr Srygley said he believed there was as good pen living today as ever lived and there are none today who could or would produce a book just like the Bible The churches all together would not produce a book just like the Bible There is no church alone which would do it They would allor either of them change it at some point Its doc trines would be different its morality would be weakened ifany man should undertake to make a book to take the place of the Bible Some strong statement in the Bible would be left out entirely and others bare ly mentioned would be made stronger Book Like the Bible Is there a church on earth today that would or could produce a book like the Bible Your brethren would not do itmy brethren would make changes of they had the task of writ ing the Bible Only God would produce a book like this It carries with it its ow evidence of its au thorMr Srygley ma Ie a plea for the Bible asjJoinplete guide for man resting Ins contention on the Apostle Pauls declaration that the man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works The Bible he insisted was as perfect for thepurpose it was intended to fill as its author A perfect thing could not be added to or changed without maring its perfec tionThe meeting will continue

Prove Handy and Save Much Time A lot of time is saved if one has handy stairs which can be used for throwing down hay as well as a pas sage way These steps are made of A Step Saver light material and instead of putting on a lower step use a block C and attach the stringers of the stairs to it at each end with a pin A rope explains Farm and Home passes over the pulleys at D to a weight which al lows the stairway to be held upright while the hay Is being put down The rope E is handy to pull ithe stairs into position SIZE OF COW STALLS Three Feet of Space Is Hardly Enough for Comfort A cow can lie down In three feet of space If she is of ordinary size If she lies perfectly straight Go into a stable however where cows are allowed only this amount of room and you will hardly ever find all lying down Some lie a little to one side thus preventing their neighbor from lyingWe find 33 feet none too much space and four feet would be better If one could afford It especially for large cows writes Forest Henry in the Northwestern Agriculturist Where cows are crowded Into three to4lilreachlength of platform between drop and stanchion it will depend altogether on length of cows I feel that it is a pretty good plan to begin at back of barn with four feet ten inches and run to the front on the bias to four feet six inches Ordinarily the master or larger cows come in first and go to back of row This gives a variation of muchByof tieup and will come nearer fitting the whole herd than by any other de- vIce I have seen With the swinging steel stanchion you can hang them so as to make a variation of easily two or three inches There are devices so arranged that by loosening a nut the stanchion can be pushed back or drawn forward and make more variation but I would much prefer the common plain steel swinging stanchion with nothing to get out of order SKIM MILK FOR CALVES That Right from the Separator fs Be lieved to Be Best It is sometimes said that sweet skim milk fed directly from the hand of the separator has caused the death of calves and young pigs but I know of no specific case in which this is true says a writer in Farmers Voice or experiments which indicate that sour skim milk gives better results than sweet in fact the evidence is very largely in favor of sweet skim milkThe skim milk directly from the separator has more or less air in it as may be seen by the foam on the top of it I have fed this milk within three or four minutes after separating to young calves and never had any trouble which might in any way be traced to the skim milk This would not prove however that allowing a young calf or pig to overload its stomach with new milk more or less mixed with air would not prove injurious though I question very seriously whether this cause alone would produce death In my opinion if skim milk is allowed to stand ten minutes or so after separating the light foam from the top removed and only d mod erate amount of the fresh warm milk allowed each animal no injurious results are likely to occur Many farmers think that because the fat has been removed a calf must be given all the skim milk it can drink and many calves suffer from too much skim milk also from feeding cold skimmIlk and from sour skim milk more especially if it is sweet one day and sour another While satisfactory results are reported from feeding skim milk J recommend the use of sweet still warm from the separator City Milk Inspection Agitation in favor of purity in out food supply is resulting in the passag of very stringent regulations governing the milk and cream supply in oui larger towns and cities Within the past few months this matter has ra ceiy d more attention than ver be fore It is a sign of progress V v V ii tw rfJ i7ct it 1 SSWHFTE HAIR AND GAY

DIVER Perils Against Which the Modern Expert Must Guard i PROTECTING HIS AIR TUBE This Is His Chief Car While Delving In the Debris of Sunken Wrecks Tragic Debut of John Day a Clever but Ignorant Old Timer A great deal of water has run under the bridge since In the month of June 1774 John Day made his fatal debut as a diver in Plymouth sound Day a clever but ignorant millwright had laid numerous wagers that confined in a water tight box and provided with a candle food and drink he would remain submerged at any depth for twelve hours His plan was that the box should be fastened by screws from withinto a vessel subsequently sunk and that when the allotted time bad elapsed he should withdraw the screws and rise to the surface His mad scheme was actually put into ex mighthavethe least extraordinary part of the affair is that while he was warned how affecthisStrength In consequence no one seems to have so much as hinted at the dang r of his death from want of air The dyer who goes down today to salve the contents of a sunken wreck recover a dropped torpedo or execute hasbetterrisks he runs and the precautions by which he may avoid all needless dan DayScIence everyfootface of the sea warns him to go slow ly down the stepladder that hangs from the ships side or the dock wall and to pause frequently as he does so that he may grow accustomed to the Increase by degrees By this means a man fit for the work sound of heart and free from apopletle tendencies passes with little Inconvenience from the moderate pressure of eight pounds per square inch which surrounds him at a depth of twenty feet to that of Bixryfive pounds which he must sus tain after descending 150 feetthe greatest depth at which his work can be considered safe Once landed at the bottom of the sea the diver has a host of things to bear In mind Weighted as he Is with brass soled boots copper helmet and often a treble set of underclothing below his diving suit of twill and rubber the tendency to rise is yet so great that his powers of action are very limited He can lift a comparatively heavy weight with ease the attempt to pull down some trifling piece of wreckage from overhead will probably take him off his feet Readers of Robert Louis Steven son will remember how wljen dressed In full deep sea costume he accom panied a diver to his work the novel 1st was able to hop with ease upon the summit of a rock some six feet high But descend again he could not His companion hauled him off head down ward and propped him on his feet like an intoxicated sparrow Even for such an apparently simple piece of work as drilling a hole in a rock or portIon of a wreck the diver will perhaps need to prop himself against a stone or make himself secure by lash tugs to the object upon which he works The great danger against which the diver must be ever on his guard is that of getting his air tube entangled In the debris of a wreckno difficult matter as he creeps in and 6ut of cabin engine room and hold among a broken and distorted mass of wood and Iron He may have been moving In one direc tion all unconscious that he is being helped by a strong current until he presently attempts to turn and finds it vain It is not the deep sea diver only who runs this risk Some years since a diver was at work in twenty feet of water repairing some dock gates His job finished he gave the Ignal to the boat above to close the gates that he might ree If all worked well The rush of mny tons of water as the heavy gates swung to swept him between and through them In a flash he realized that his air pipe would be caught between the massive doors and at the same moment saw his only chance for life He thrust his heavy hammerhead between the closing gates and this kept his pipe free till he could Signal for them to be reopened The old method of communication between the diver and his helpers at the surface was by means of tugs upon the line but nowadays the telephone or perhaps a speaking tube accompa IDes the air pipe at his side And though many divers still work In the comparative darkness both oil and electricity will shed their light upon the scene if need arise Sharks are visitors wlth whom In certain waters the deep sea diver has to count But the shark is not always so dangerous a morning caller as might be thought A diver at work In the cabin of a sunken ship saw to his diSmay a shark

the Tiro- faer Regions MIt may seem incredible to those who have never lived in or traveled much through timber districts wher the huckleberry Is indigenous said a native of such district but it Is fact that there is a tribe of shiftless in all such regions who systematillly and without regard to law property or life set fire to woods or cut over land adjacent to woods simply to in crease the area of huckleberry bushes There is only one way in which huckelberries can be cultivated and the huckleberry farmer does not need to own an inch of land If he has the title to one simple lucifer match he can put thousands of acres under culti vation in a very short time He has only to light the match and touch it to the dry leaves and branches on the ground either in early sprint or late fall and his cultivation Is soon- under way No matter what grew ott the ground before fire swept it bare huckleberry bushes will never fail t spring up luxuriantly from the ashes and scorched soil They will be in abundant bearing the next easoD What the result may have been In IoU of life or property does not concept the persons who reap the benefit Many of the fires that devastate our forests every year may be traced to this reckless and deliberate making or improving of huckleberry patches I remember one instance particularly where the setting fire to the brush ott a huckleberry barren in northern Penn sylvanla resulted in a forest fire that swept over a 10000 acre timber tract doing incalculable damage to the stand ing timber and reducing to ashes 50 000 feet of logs and lumber and S0 000 cords of tanbark representing a money value of nearly 750000 Twen ty persons were burned to death and thirty so badly burned that seven of them died from their injuries The huckleberry crop gathered from this cultivation of that barren waste per haps realized 200 to the cultivators Washington PostSPROVED HIS SPELLINGS An Incident In the Career of Stephen A Douglas An amusing incident occurred in Mc Lean county 111 at the first court which Stephen A Douglas the famous politican attended after his election as prosecuting attorney There were many indictments to be drawn writes Professor Allen Johnson in his life of Douglas and the new prosecuting at torney in his haste wrote the name of the county MClean instead of McLean His professional brethren were greatly amused at this evidence of inexperi ence and made merry over the blunder Finally John T Stuart subsequently Douglas political rival moved that aU the indictments be quashed Judge Logan looked at the discomfited youth and asked what he had to say to sup- pOrt the indictments Smarting under the gibes of Stuart Douglas replied obstinately that he had nothing to say as he supposed the court would not quash the indictments until the point had been proved This answer caused more merriment but the judge decided that the court could not rule upon the matter until the pre cise spelling in the statute creating the county had been ascertained No one doubted what the result would be but at least Douglas had the satisfaction of causing his critics some delay for the statutes had to be procured from an adjoining county To the astonishment of court and bar and of Douglas himself it appeared that he had spelled the name correctly To the indescribable chagrin of the learned Stuart the court promptly sustained all the indictments The young attorney was in high feather and made the most of his triumph The Incident taught him a useful les sonhenceforth he would admit noth ing and require his opponents to prove everything that bore upon the case in hand I His Curiosity SatisfiedSA wealthy tradesman who had been drinking the waters of Bath England took a fancy to try those of Bristol Armed

greater imp Io tance and reward No consideration of party fealty or personal friendship wouldinduceme to advise either farm er or workingman to do anything that was not for his permanent benefit With this fact keenly before me I earnestly advise all workingmen in their own interest as workingmen but above all as American citizens con cerned in the honor and the prosper ity of this great free republic to support Mr Taft for president just as I advise all farmers business men and men of the professions fir do not believe the wageworkersI of this country have ever a friend jn the White House than Mr Taft will prove to be He has already shown his faith by his deeds In the matter of the injunctions he issued he was absolutely right and the prin ciples laid down in those injunctions have since then been accepted by every worthy leader of labor and they are embodied in the practices of all the railroad brotherhoods at the present day The abuses of injunction have been fearlessly ex posed and attacked by Mr Taft He recognizes as in my judgment all fairminded men must recognize that again and again in the past this pro cess has been used to the detriment or wageworlcers by certain judges He is doing and will continue to do thing that can be done tQ do awa1Yi with these abuses He will not vague promises impossible of fulfill ment He will and In faith try to secure actionIThe

a wood near Upper Providence under conditions which strongly point to murder A large hole had been torn in the lower portion of his face by a charge of shot Denny started to his home in this place on Friday to go hunting Accompanied by another man he was seen going toward the wood where his body was found late Friday afternoon The suggestion that he was the vie1 tim of an accident or shot himself is discouraged by the fact that his gun and ammunition and all of his valu ables had been taken An old cap and several shattered twigs were picked up in front of the body These bits of wood the authorities say show that the charge of shot came from some distance and not from Dennys own gun The police have arrested three ne groes who admit they talked with Denny early on Friday afternoon but they declare they know nothing of the shooting Gomez and Zayas Honored Santiago Cuba Oct 26General Jose Miguel Gomez and Alfredo Zay as respectively the presidential and vice presidential candidates

of the firm as though it bad been acquired for purposes merely specula aye 1Chap1 rml A BOUT that time Boots Lan sing very quietly bought a house on ManhattanI 4 Island It was a small t narrow three Bto house of brick iedI shabby on the and situated on a modest block between Lexington and Park avenues where the newly married Of the Lounger set were arriving in increas ing numbers prepared to pay the r penalty for all love matches It was an unexpected move to Sel e wyn he had not been aware ot Lan sings contemplated desertion and that r morning returning from his final interview with Neergard he was astonished to find his comrades room tare of furniture and a hasty and ex clamatory note on his own table Phil Ive bought a house Come and see It Youll find me in it Carpetless floors and unpapered walls Its the hap plest day of my life BOOTS House Owner And Selwyn horribly depressed went down after a solitary luncheon and found Lansing sitting on a pile of dusty rugs ecstatically inspecting the cracked ceiling Im going to have the entire thing done over room by room when I can afford it Look there Phil i TN Thats to be your room Thanks old f7fellow not now t fWhy yes I expected youd f J rhave your room here Phil 6 W lsIts very goo t ot you Boots J it but I cant do 11Lansing faced him Vonttound Lansing sit youtiny on a pile of Selwyn smil V TUgSIing shook his head and the other knew it was finaL Well the room will be there fur fished the way you and I like itIWhen you want it make smoke signals or wigwag I will thank you Boots Lansing said unaffectedly How soon do you think you can afford a house like this I dont know You see Iye only my income now tPlus what you make at the office Ive left Neergard morning for good The deuce he murmured looking at Selwyn but the latter volunteered no further information and Lansing I having given him the chance cheerfully switched to the other track Shall I see whether the Air Line has anything In your line Phil NoIiWell what are you going to do I dont exactly know what I shall do If I had capital enough I think Id start in making bulk and dense powders all sorts gun cotton nitro powders You mean youJ like to go on with your own Inventionchaosite Id like to keep on experimenting with it If I could afford to Perhaps I will But Its not yet a commercial possibility if it ever is to be I wish t I could control

years stor age youvefto worry over J1stIlyou do a lot of worrying all the same PhilSelwyn flushed tip and denied itIYes you do I dont believe you realize how much of the time you are out of spirits Does it impress you that way asked Sejwyn mortified because Im really all right y Of course you are Phil I know It but you dont seem to realize it Youre morbid Im afraid V Youve been taikingto my sister i What of it Besides I knew there was something the matter You know what it is too And isnt it enough to subdue a mans splr Its occasionally fr No said Lansing If you mean your mistake two years ago That r Isnt enough to spoil life for a man Ive wanted to tell you so for a long time V And as Selwyn said nothing ForI heavens sake make up your mind to t v enjoy your life You fire fitted to enjoy it Get that absurd notion out of your head that youre done for that youve no home life In prospect no family life no children Do you mean to say Boots that you think a man who has made the ghastly mess of his life that I have ought to feel free to marry Think It UanI know It Certain you ought to marry If you wish hut above aU you ought to feel free to marry That is the essential equip meat pf a man He Isnt a man If he feels that he isnt free to marry He may not want to do It be may not be in love Thats neither here nor there The main thing is that he is free as a man should be to take any good oppor tunity and marriage js Included In the opportunitiesI shrouded room furniture Selwyn looked around an involuntary smile twitching his mouth What about your marrying he said after this talk about mine What about it Boots Is this new house the first modest step toward the matrimony you laud so loudly Suresald that gentleman airily Thats what Im here for Really Well of course Idiot rye always been in love You mean you actually have somebody In view No son Ive always been in love withlove Im a sentimental sentry on the ramparts of reason Im prop erly armed for trouble now so if Im challenged I wont let my chance slip meAfter a little while Selwyn went away first to look up a book which he was having bound for Eileen then to call on his sister who with Eileen Siltto moving the entire establishment there for the coming summer Silverslde Is too lovely for words exclaimed Nina as Selwyn entered the library Nobody wanted to come away Eileen made straight for the surf but it was an Arctic sea and as soon as I found cut what she was doing I made her come out I should think you would he said Nobody can do that and thrive She seems to said Nina She was simply glorious after the swim and I hated to put a stop to it And you should see her drying her hair and helping Plunket to roll the tennis courtsthat hair of hers blowing like gold flames and her sleeves rolled to her armpitsand you should see her down In the dirt playing marbles with Billy and Drina shooting away excitedly and exclaiming Ten dubs and Knuckle down Billy like any gamin you ever heard of totally unspoiled Phil in spite of all the success of her first winter And do you know that she had no end of men seriously entangled Phil What he said His sister regarded him smilingly then partly turned around and perched herself on the padded arm of a great chairCome over here Phil no close to me I wish to put my hands on your shoulders like that Now lookat me Do you realty love me- Sure thing Ninette And you know I adore you dont you 1 Madly dear but I forgive you No I want you to be serious because Im pretty serious See Im not smiling now I dont feel like It because it is a very very important matter Phil this thing that hashasal AndIWhat has she done he asked curl ously His sisters eyes were searching his very diligently as though in quest of something elusive and he gazed serenely back the most unsuspicious of smiles touching his mouth Phil dear a young girln very young girlIs a vapid and uninterest ing proposition to a man of thirtyfive isnt sheARatherin some ways In what nay is she notr Well to me for example s eis ac acceptableaILike Rosamund Yes And Ninette you and Austin seem to be drifting out of the old clr ties the sort that you and 1 were ac customed tn You dpnt mind my say ing it do you But there Were so many people iri this town wvho had some thing besides millions amuslngs well bred jolly people who had no end of good times but who didnt gamble and puzzle and stuff themselves and their friends who were not eternalfy hang ing around other peoples wives You have Just asked me whether a young girl is interesting to me I answer yes thank God for the cleaner saner happier hours I have spent this winter- i among my own kind have been spent where the younger set dominated They are better than those who bred them and if in time they too fall short they will not fall as far as their parents And in their turn when they look around them at the younger set whom they have taught In the light 1 It iftnfr wisdom of their own shortcom ings they will see fresher sweeter lovelier yoiing people than we see now And It VilT continue so dear through the jolly generations Life Is all right only like art it is Very very long sometimes Nina sat silent upon the padded arm of her chair looking up at her brother Mad preachers Mad mollah Dear dear fellowf she said tenderly All ills of the world cant thou discount but not thine own Those too he insisted laughing I had a talk with Boots But any way Id already arrived at my own conclusion thatthatIm rather overdoing this blighted business Phil in quick delight Yes he said reddening nicely between you and Boots and myself rye decided that Im going in for for whatever any man is going in for life Ninette life to the full and up to the hilt for miner I am going to say something that Is very very serious and very near my heart said Nina I remember he said Its about Eileen isnt ItYes it is about Eileen He waited and a his sisters eyes began restlessly searching his for something that she seemed unable to findYou make it a little difficult Phil I dont believe I hid better speak of It WtJynotr Why Just because you ask me Why not for example Is It anything that worries you about Eileenr Nno not exactly It is1t may be a phase and yet J know that if it is anything at all it is not a passing phase She is different from the ma jority you seevery Intelligent very direct She never forgets for example Her loyalty is quite remarkable Phil She is very intense in herher beliefs the more so because she is unusually free from Impulse even quite ignorant of the deeper emotions or so I believed until until Is she in love he asked A little PhiL Does she admit it he demanded unpleasantly astonished She admits it in a dozen Innocent ways to me who can understand hor But to herself she has not admitted it I think could not admit It yet be cause because Who is it asked Selwyn and there was in his voice the slightest under tone of a growl Dear shall I tell you jU Why not- Becausebecnuse Phil I think that our pretty Eileen is a little in love withyouHe out to his run height scarlet to the temples She dropped her linked fingers In her lap gazing at him almost sadly Dear all the things you are prepar ing to shout at me are quite useless I know I dont imagine I dont fore stall I dont predict Nina you are madder than a March heiressAir your theories Phil then come back to realities The conditions remain Eileen is certainly a little in love with you and a little with her means something And you evidently have never harbored any serious In tentions toward tho child t can see that because you are the most trans parent man I ever knew Now the question is What is to be done- I am of course obliged to believe that you are mistaken he said A man cannot choose but believe in that manner There is no very young girl nobody old or young whom I like as thoroughly as I do Eileen Enroll She knows it sc do you Nina It Is open and aboveboard I should be very un happy if anything marred or distorted our friendship I am quite confident that nothing will In that frame of mind said his sister smiling you are the healthiest companion in the world for her for you will either cure her or she you and it is all right either way Certainly it will be all right he said confidently For a few moments he paced the room reflective quickening his pace all the while and his sister watched him silent in her Indecision Im going up to see the kids he said abruptly To be continued WONDERFUL AMERICAN HEN The cackles of the American hens are swelling hita mighty chorus Sixteen

NABSOW AND WIDE USES bear me out when I say that if these tires had been four inches or more the road would have been benefited rather than damaged A wide tire un der a load makes an observer think of a roller- I think this wide tire proposition Is one of the first essentials to good roads and should be encouraged by legislation and a limit law for the amount of load for every inch of tire width If wagon tires were required to be three inches or more for 2000 pound loads and one additlonai inch for each added 1000 or major fraction thereof very much less work would be required to maintain our roads OUT FOR THE BEST ROADS Why the West Believes In Building Highways For Automobiles z The good roads movement In the east does not compare with that of the west said Horace O Gordon of the Oklahoma Good Roads association while he was In New York on a visit I think the work of the good roads advocates In the east has stirred up- I the public demand and desire for the best roads in the world in the west but I do not believe the eastern states are carrying out the work so thorough ly as the western states We in the west appreciate the fact that the opening of the western coun try depends entirely upon its roads wayslike your eastern state roads to be torn up by automobiles We are building roads which the motor cars cannot tear up We feel that the automobile can do us more good than the horse because we have to cover hundreds of miles where you In the east Cover tens of miles It seems a ridiculous thing to build a road for the use of the horse which Is on the decline and then when the automobile comes along and tears it ujTto jump up and yell that the motor car is destroying our roads The thing to do Is to build roads for the automo bile and then the horse can use them as long as he lasts which will not be a great while Forest Service and Good Roads Realizing that with thicker settlement and Increasing use of the na tional forests good roads win become more and more a crying necessity it has been arranged that the oflceof public roads of the department of agriculture shall cooperate with the forest service in drawing up plans for comprehensive systems of roads and trails in the national forests Hitherto the funds al lotted by congress t6 the forest feervi e for permanent Improvements on na tional forests have largely been used far road and trail

exercises of the cadets with pikes rifles and Broadswords were not approached by anything of the kind that I had witnessed m- Duropeit was fighting of the fiercest character At then of the struggle there was a handtohand combat which lasted until the victors stood triumphant over the bodies of the Vanquish and tore off their masks In these xercises- which are very severethe cadets struckone an with wildcries but the moment a prearranged signal was given or the fight came to an end the combatants drew themselves up ina line and their faces assumed an expression of wooden composure In all the public schools prominence was given to military exercises and the scholars took part is them with enthusiasm Even in their walks they practiced running flanking and sudden unex pected attacks of one

last year only 887 were tried by juries On three of the most important cir cuitsthe Manchester the Leeds and the Bolton circuits not a single case was tried by a jury all through the year On the Cardiff circuit the jury box was occupied but once and on the Newcastle and the Carlisle circuits not more than twice Curi ously enough the demand for the services of jurymen is diminished as the

to see what foolish things the men did who were in attendance They seemed to think of the auction as an affair of the two or more persons who might be offering prices and seemed to be ut terly oblivious of the value of the article once having entered into the competition No woman she declared would ever be so foolish IS ENGLISH MASTER MARINER Lady Margaret CrichtonStuart sister of the

What Has Long Been Known as o the Grand Passion Dr Berjtillpn director of the Paris asylum forth insane has been studying love as a type of mental disease Whether he be the Dr Al phone BertiUon of Paris who in iife79 invented the system of identi lca ton now so commonly used in police circleswe know not He has reached the conclusion that love when intense approachesaberration and the whole left side of the body becomes hypersensitive This peculiarity must have been noted by a good many who have their hearts in the right place v But what will it benefit should love be proved to be an alienation of mind P Will victims beconsigned to insane asylums and will the state claim jurisdiction in well defined cases This places the divine pas sion on a level with alcoholism and the mumps It has been generally suspected that crimes committed under impulses of unrequited love were acts of lunatics and it sounds plati tudinous to have a Paris expert agree The question is how to deal with love homicides What the doc tor seems to be striving at is to show that the body becomes unbalanced on the left side andis apt to wabble away from rational conduct Pitts burg Post LIVED 43YEARS IN

few years There is a surprise in store for those disposed to look upon the Philippine Islands as a useless ac quisition says A Heite a mining engineerof Manila who is nov in Washington Before the Spanish conquest gold dust in considerable quantities was exported from the Philippines to China and since the Am9rcian occupation the work of prospecting has made wonderful strides Next year yellow metal to the value of 1000000 win be ex cavated and the installation of improved machinery yill make possi ble a production of at least 5000 000 annually Ore bodies in sight and blocked out fully verified by trustworthy reports mad to the Government will yield 100000 000 There is every reason to believe that as mining operations progress greater am1xicher deposits of that precious metal will be uncovered Many Americans who have gone to the Philippines as enlisted men in the army but who were experi enced prospectors and practical miners vertmiail1ed in the archi pelago lured by the gold in sight the prospects of accumulating a for tune from mining offsetting all ob jections to livngln the tropics It will not be long before the Philip pines will take a leading position as a gold
