unimproved The 400000000 for national aid would give about 500 a mile or about 25 per cent of the average cost of building hard roads upon these high waysAfter ten years of study of road building at home and abroad the writer has reached the following definite con clusionsFirstThat if we are to have good roads within a generation the federal government must assist In building them SecondThat the government contribution be pro rated among the states as the work is done on the basis of onehalf the gross sum upon the full road mileage of the state and onehalf upon the basis of population The plan works out fairly- to all the states This plan would make available out of 100000000 approximately J25000000 for New York 26000000 for Pennsylvania 22000000 for Illinois 518 for Ohio 13000000 for Michigan eteThlrdThat the actual construction of the roads phould be done under state su pervlsiori upon specifications approved by the United States government engineers FourthThat the Initiative should be left with the respective townships road districts or parishes these to furnish at least onethird of the total cost with the state clothed with power to veto any Im provement if of Insufficient importance This power would probably be seldom if ever used It may be assumed if the road was not a main highway and needed the people of a township would not vote to build it when they had to raise at least onethird of the money required to do so Fifth That if this country is to fulfill its high destiny and meet the require ments placed upon it by its wealth posi tion and its opportunity good roads are a paramount necessity and to get them speedily requires both federal and state aid to hearten the people to undertake this great work Good roads will do more for the educational social and economic development of the whole country than any other single agency GOOD ROADS IN ENGLAND W H Moore Says the United States ExampleINa- tional Good Roads association writing to the editor of the Kansas City Star says The finest examples of perfect easy and durable roads 1 have found in the British isles are the Warwick road from Leamington to Warwick castle about two and a half miles the Kenil worth road from Leamington to Kenil worth castle five miles and the Strat ford road from Leamington to Strat fordonAvon ten and a half miles These roads are about four rods wide between fences The traveled or im proved portion Is twentytwo feet wfde between grass edges All these roads have horse paths on one side Some of these are carefully prepared with stone averaging from two to three feet deep the top surfacing being earth The paths on the side which are two or three feet from the main road average about five feet In width No material has ever been nor ever will be found more suitable to horses feet and to the horsemen than the common earth surfaced roads The roads referred to receive careful and constant attention In the early season May or June they receive an application of coal tar product This is impervious to rain and allays the dust The very best in terests of the people of the British Isles socially and commercially are conserved by the splendid system of public roads If the great army of pol iticians in the United States who are making pyrotechnic speeches and all candidates for municipal state and federal offices should confine their cam paign to the subject of good roads and when elected go after the question in earnest they would soon accomplish the greatest good In their generation Every county can afford good roads With a little common sense financIer Ing by bonding or making a special levy with nn interest and a sinking fund consideration any community can possess good roads with all their attendant blessings The curse of mud roads in the United States is a national monumental fraud It is a hideous evidence of misgovernment a reproach against the advancement of equal rights and liberty to all Combine For Good Roads Minneapolis Minn teamsters and motorists have Joined forces in an ef fort to secure better roads the Minne apolis Teamsters union and the Minneapolis Automobile club having decided to go Into politics

Efforts of Abilenes Clubwq men an Unsightly Spot Was Con demned For Park PurposesCarne- gie Library Erected In Its Center After nine years of effort sacrifice and planning the women of Abilene Kan recently saw a fruition of their hopes In the dedication of a public li brary costing 12500 equipped with 6000 books and set in the midst of a pretty city park in the most central block of town This is a striking example of what countryIpersons have the right inspiration and endeavor to do some good to those around them Ten years ago the people ot Abilene laughed at the idea of a suc cessful public library Several at tempts had been made to establish such and each was a failure The books gradually had been lost and finally the rooms were given up The clubwomen took up the idea appointing a committee composed of members from each of the clubs and made another effort says the Kansas City Star It was a slow and tedious process at first The first books were gifts from individuals making a very meager collection of indifferent litera ture The first move tn any amount that was secured for the library was from a lecture by William Jennings Bryan soon after the election of 1000 The proceeds were divided between the library and other local enterprises and 100 was realized Then came the first rummage sale something the town never had experienced and which created much hilarity when it opened But In those days old clothes were much more in demand than in these times and the proceeds surprised even the managers After this the library fund grew steadily from all sorts of entertainments donations and schemes that would add to Its proportions A small room was secured over a grocery store and the first books were Install ed with a librarian who practically gave her services This librarian was Miss Lida Romljr a graduate of the University of Kansas and with experience in the large book concerns of Chicago and Boston She entered into the work of the struggling library with all the enthusiasm of the clubwomens nndcarpIillIthe largest city institutionIAfter awhile ry tax This amounts to about 1200 a year which speedily put the library on Its feet It had become by this time apPIl1cationequipment and the little room became too small for the growing number off volumes Next the women sought a library building but they had no place to put It nor money with which to buy a site Finally they evolved a way out of the difficulty and Included in their plans the wiping out of what come the towns eyesore the ugliestI block in Abilene This block was in the center of the town but on low ground which had often been overflowed at flood time On one corner was the badly located city hall built in the boom days and used for the marshals residence and the fire department An unsightly liv ery barn an old house a great sheet iron shed for implements four or five rickety store buildings used for black smith shops and second hand stores and three or four lots covered with discarded traction engines thrashing machines and rubbish of every sort completed the disfigurement of the square It was laughed at scorned and abused by everybody and considered a disgrace to the city Visitors never were taken past that block if it was possible to avoid it The clubwomen undertook to trans form this unsightly spot Into one of beauty The mayor assisted them by calling a special election to issue park bonds and by the work of the women these bonds were voted biy a small ma jority Then the entire clock was con demned for park purposes and all the buildings and disfigurements on It were removed leaving the city hall as Its only occupant Then by request of the women the city made formal appli cation to Andrew Carnegie for 12500 for a public library accompanying the request by the assurance that the park block would be used for a site The library tax already in force together with the income from other methods of money raising insured a sufficient income to meet the requirements of the Carnegie gift The city hauled In dirt from the higher portions of the town and filled up the block far aboye the high water mark and in the center llbrarment basement and foundations and is one of the handsomest buildings of Its class In the state The furniture Is all oak and in the simplest lines and most artistic form A handsomely fur nished assembly room is open to the clubwomen for their meetings When the new building was opened the people thronged the rooms and were effusive in their praise oithe ac coinpllshments that the women of the town had brought about The pretty park block has been planted in elms and sown to blue grass and will be one of the beauty spots of Abilene Every visitor how Is taken by the public library and the

Highway Expert Tells Why the Government Should Help HAS THE RIGHT AND ABILITY Secretary of Farmers Good Roads League Points Out How States Can Be Helped by Bond IssueDefinite Conclusions on Construction Methods H H Gross secretary of the Farm ers Good Roads league has written as follows from Chicago to the editor of the New York Tribune on the sub ject of building improved highways Should the federal government by a bond issue assist the states to build public roads if so to what extent The answers to the above questions involve the consideration of several thingsfirst the right of the govern ment to do so the need of it its ability and last whether it Is a wise policy to adopt In the brief space available we must assume the necessity for good roads that their condition affects mar ket conditions and thus concerns all the people that bad roads are pro ductive of a great and preventable waste that amounts to several dollars a person a year that one of the great est needs for the social and economic development and welfare of all the people is good roads As to the right or power of the federal government to build or assist to build highways section 8 of article iof the constitution says among other thingsCongress shall have power to establish postoflices and post roads More than 40 per cent of all the high ways and most of the main roads ark used for rural mail delivery and so are postroads in the meaning of the consti tution President Monroe In a mes sage to congress May 4 1802 says In whatever sense the term establish is applied to postofflces it must be ap plied m the same sense to post roads Cooley in his book on constitutional law says Every road within a state including railroads canals turnpikes and naviga ble streams existing or created within a state became a post road whenever by action of the postofllce department pro vision Is made for the transportation of the mails upon or over It The above Is deemed sufficient to show the government has the unques tionable right to Improve highways used for rural mail delivery Article 1 section 8 clause 1 provides In part The congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes duties imports and excises to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general wel fare of the United States Is not highway improvement for the general welfare On March 14 1818 the house of rep resentatives passed the following reso lutionResolved That congresS has power un der the constitution to appropriate money for the of post roads mili tary and other roads and of canals and for the improvement of waterways Among the early statesmen who held that the federal government had ample power to build roads were Jefferson Madison Clay Webster Calhoun and othersThe government has expended mil Hons on the old Cumberland road and a number of military roads establish ing a precedent The public roads of nearly every civilized country in the world have been built in whole or in part by its general government It is the only plan that has ever succeeded It is the world precedent- As to the need for better highways no argument is necessary The gen eral government is expending 35000 000 a year on rural delivery Accord Ing to Senator Bankhead of Alabama the postoffice department estimates that uniformly good roads would mean longer routes more regular service and a saving of 20 per cent in the cost Thus the loss to the postofflce depart ment due to bad roads is now 7000 000 a year and is increasing as the service is extended It will soon reach 10000000 a year While bad roads en tail a loss to the mail service of 7 000000 to 10000000 a year the loss to the farmers and consumers of farm produce cannot be less than twenty times as much As to the ability of the federal gov ernment to assist in building good roads how better can we judge this than by comparing the debt per capita of our country with the leading nations of the world that have built good roads and found it paid to do so The per capita debt of Germany ac cording to the Chicago Daily News Al manac and Year Book for 1908 is 49 England 8883 Italy 82 Spain 98 France 144 and the United States 1111 The amount of annual inter est charge to be met by a citizen of Germany is 2 France 005 England 3471 United States 29 cents Thepanlc of 1967 was pasloned largely by the enormous demand for currency Ufo move the crops Why need the crops be moved with such baste and at such great Inconvenience ttothe railways and so completely drain the cities of money as to cause a panic and the loss of many millions the farmer knew the winter and bad road deason was approaching and that Ifche1 didnt get his crops off before the roads broke up he didnt know how long the embargo of bad roads Would prevent him from doing so Another factor was the Insufficient amount of government bonds to serve as the basis of national bank circula tion As no bonds were available the banks could not increase their circula tion as they would have been glad to do and which would have immedi ately relieved the financial strain The country needs good roads and it needs ft larger debt strange has tliat may r i PARK IMPROVEMENT Reaction Against Former Absurdities Is Observable Of late years our parks have become much more restful arid satisfying than they were in days of long ago There was a period of years when every park was full of bizarre effects in carpet bedding these beds often being given the most conspicuous positions as though nothing better could be pre sented to the public The truth of the matter 13 that the parks should first present a restful appearance and ef fect Broad expanses of lawn and long vistas across greensward and water or both should be the first glimpse to be seen by the visitors to a large park says the Los Angeles Times Inv small er areas in more formal surroundings carpet beds of quiet and simple design are permissible especially for the pur pose of showing flowering plants In large parks where more naturalness is in evidence the flower beds should ap pear as incidentals in plantation bor ders or in recesses iu the woodland or shrubbery masses Carpet beds have usually marred our parks as much by the use of hideous colors as by ugly designs There is no beauty in purple beet tops yet much of the material used is of the same moribund hue or some variegated vagaries in foliage are used when beet tops are scarce IJ is just as easy to use plants that are beautiful in themselves as hese colors at enmity with all that we call beauty in garden vegetation There has of late been a marked reaction against these absurdities that shows a more health ful public taste and the words of dis approval publicly and privately called forth by wall paper designs and colors in our park bedding are an indication of an improved general taste in garden ing Carpet bedding has for many years been gradually on the wane andit may be expected to so continue until we have the unbroken charm of fine stretches of restful lawn without these bizarre effects A rule which should be at all times observed in landscaping either public or private gardens is that edges of lakes or water courses should never be bare except for boat landings in cer tain spots No path should touch the waters edge except occasionally and a border plantation of varying width should always be kept between path and water This is a fundamental rule too often violated in both park and garden BEAUTIFUL BLOCK SYSTEM How to Arrange Trees Along Streets and Parkways The question has frequently been asked if the uniform planting of streets necessarily involves placing the trees at uniform distances apart As the writer uses the term uniform it docs notin fact if the width of the parkway allows street trees should be grouped rather than planted singly It Is Just as well to preserve a uni form spacing unless such interferes with drives or paths leading into pri vate property or obscures some excep tionally fine view from same In such cases it is best to so adjust the trees that certain ones may be several feet removed from the position wherein uniform spacing would place them But in any event plant street trees Those taking up neighborhood or community improvement should obtain expert opinions as to how best to plant whole blocks along the front property line At present we either find ugly fences dirty and conventional hedges or what is still worse the open lawn frontWorkers for the beautiful block sys tem should see that after uniform street trees there follows uniform treatment of parkways says the Los Angeles Times For this purpose grass looks well but is hard to maintain un der much shade When a street is first planted and before the trees are much In evidence whole blocks of parkway planted to scarlet verbena make an Impressive sight and the plants require as little care as any that may be obtainable If one objects to scarlet or lurid and luminous shades white ver benas may be used Uniformity of street planting shows very plainly a spirit of cooperation and friendly neighborhood feeling a desire to cre ate real beauty and relegate personal wishes to the background when ques tions of community interests are at issue Only with such a spirit preva lent may the maximum amount of civic beauty be obtained Furthermore where all agree on a method of plant Ing or treatment all take a pride in maintaining their own frontage up to a reasonable standard In time this cooperation extends to other matters and almost before we are aware we are living in the city beautiful Little

Hammersteins Manhattan Opera Company and John Duns mure pleasantly remembered for his connection with the Bostoni ans The Barber of Seville is unique in the field of comic opera inas much as its

4The change in the business procedure of the Catholic Church in this country by which it passes from the jurisdic tion of the Propaganda Fide and its bishops are placed on the same basis as those of other important coun tries goes into effect today In fut ure every Catholic archbishop and bishop in the United States will ap point a personal representative of his diocese in Rome and all business

her pretty eyes fixed on her brother He had nearly finished cutting the leaves of the magazinebefore she spoke men tioning the fact of Rosamund Fanes arrival at the Minsters house Brook Iminster rThe slightest frown gathered and passed from her brothers i sun bronzed forehead but heFor awhile Nina made no co inmmenteMr Neergard is a guest too she observedWhat exclaimed Selwyn in dis gust Yes he came ashore with the FanesSelwyn flushed a little but went on cutting the pages of the magazine When he had finished he flattened the pages between both covers and said without raising his eyes Im sorry that crowd is to be In evi denceThey always are and always will be smiled his sister He looked up at her Do you mean that anybody else is a guest at Brook minsterYes Phil Alixe Yeu He looked down at the book on his knees and began to furrow the pages absentlyPhil she said have you heard anything this summerlatelyabout the Ruthvens No NothIng at all1 Not a word You knew they were at Newport as usual I took it for granted And you have heard no rumors DO gossip concerning themnothing about a yacht Where was I to hear it What gossip What yacht Hls sister said very seriously Alixe has been very careless Everybody Is What of iU It Is understood that she and Jack Ruthven have separated He looked up quickly Who told you that A woman wrote me from Newport And Alixe is here and Jack Ruthven Is in New York Several people have I have heard about It from several sources Im afraid Its true Phil They looked Into each others trou bled eyes and he said If she has done this It Is the worse of two evils t she has chosen To live with him was bad enough but this Is the limit I know It She cannot afford to do such a thing again Phil what Is the matter with her She simply cannot be sane and do such a thing can she I dont know he said Well I do She is not sane She has made herself horridly conspicuous among conspicuous people She has been indiscreet to the outer edge of ef frontery Even that set wont stand it always especially as their men folk are quite crazy about her and she leads a train of them about wherever she goesthe little fool And now If Its true that theres go Ing to be a separation what on earth will become of her I ask you Phil for I dont know But men know what be comes eventually of women who slap the world across the face with over ringed fingers Itif theres any talk about ItIttheres newspaper talkIf theres a divorce who will ask her to their houses Who will condone this thing Who will t tolerate it or heJMen and men only the odious sort that fawn on her now and follow her about half sneeringly Theyll tolerate It but their wives wont and the kind of women who will receive and tolerate her are not Includ ed In my personal experience What a I fool she has been Good heavens what afool A trifle paler than usual he said There is no real harm In her I know there Is not You are very generous Phil No I am trying to be truthful And I say there Is no harm in her I have made up my mind on that score He leaned nearer his sister and laid one hand on hers where It lay across the hammocks edge Nina no woman could have done what she has done and continue to do what she does and be mentally sound This at last Is my conclusion It has long been my conclusion she said under her breath He stared at the floor out of gray eves grown dull and hopeless PhilI whispered his sister sup posesupposewhat happened to her father I know She said again It was slow at first Ohra brilliant eccentricity that gradually Phil Phil It was softening of the brain he said was it not ft Yes he entertained a delusion of conspiracy against him also a compla cent conviction of the mental insta bility of others Yet at intervals he remained clever and witty and charm Ing And then Philhe became violent at times Yes And the end he asked quietlyA little child again quite happy and content playing with toys very gentle very pitiable The hot tem filled her eyes Oh Phil she sob bed and hid her face on his shoulder Over the soft faintly fragrant hair he stared stupidly lips apart chin looseA later Nina sat up in the ham mock daintily effacing the traces of tears Selwyn was sayingoClf this is so that Ruthven man has got to stand by her Where could she go if such trouble Is to come upon her To whom can she turn If not to him He is re sponsible for herdoubly so if her con dition Is to bethat By every law of manhood he is bound to stand by her now By every law of decency and humanity he cannot desert her now If she does thesethese Indiscreet things and if he knows she Is not altogether mentally responsible he can not full to stand by her How can he In Gods name Phil she said you speak like a man but she has no man to stand loyally by her n the direst need a human soul may know He Is only a thing no man at all only a loathsome acct dent of animated decadence He looked up quickly amazed at her sudden bitterness and she looked back at him almost fiercely I may at well tell you what Ive heard she said I was not going to at first but It will be all around town sooner or later Rosamund told me She learnedas she manages to learn everything a little before anybody else hears of itthat Jack Ruthven found out that Alixe was behaving very carelessly with some mansome silly callow and probably harmless youth But there was a disgraceful scene on Mr Neergards yacht the Niobrara I dont know who the people were but Ruthven acted abominably The Nlo brara anchored in Widgeon bay yester day and Alixe is aboard and her hus band is In New York and Rosamund says he means to divorce her in one way or another Ugh the horrible lit tIe man with his rings and bangles She shuddered Why the mero bringing of such a suit means her so cial ruin no matter what verdict is brought in Her only salvation has been In remaining inconspicuous and a sane girl would have realized it Butand she made a gesture of de spniryou see what she has done And Phil you know what she has done to you what a mad risk she took in going to your rooms that night Who said she had ever been In my rooms he demanded flushing darkly in his surprise Did you suppose I didnt know it she asked quietly Oh but I did and It kept me awake nights worrying Yet I knew it must have been all right knowing you as I do But do you suppose other people would hold you as innocent as I do Even Eileen the sweetest whitest most loyal little soul In the worldwas troubled when Rosamund hinted at some scandal touching you and Alixe She told me but she did not tell me what Rosa mund had saidthe mischief maker His face had become quite colorless He raised an unsteady hand to his mouth touching his mustache and his gray eyes narrowed menacingly Rosamundspoke of scandal toEileen he repeated Is that possible How long do you suppose a girl can live and not hear scandal of some sort said InauIts bound to rain some time or other but I prepared my little ducks back to shed some things You say Insisted Selwyn that Rosamund spoke of meIn that way to EileenYes It only made the child angry Phil so dont worry NoI wont worry No II wont You are quite right Nina But the pity of it that tight hard shelled woman of the world to do such a thing to n vnnntr sirs nosamuna is Rosamund said Nina with a shrug The antidote to her species Is obvious Right thank Godl said Selwyn between his teeth Mens sana in cor pore sano Bless her little heart I Im glad you told me this Nina He rose and laughed a little a curi ous sort of laugh and Nina watched him perplexed Where are you going Phil she asked I dont know Iwhere Is Eileen Shes Sing downa headache prob ably too much sun and salt water Shall I send for her No Ill go up and inquire how she is Susanne Is there isnt she And he entered the house and ascended the stairs The little maid was seated in a corner of the upper hall sewing and she informed Selwyn that made moiselle had bad in ze head But at the sound of conversation In the corridor Eileens gay voice came I to them from her room asking who it thereIIt Is L sire you better said Sel wynYes Ddld you wish to see me YesThe pretty greeting she always re separaI Eileen curled up among the 1Iton8I fragrant hand which lay for a second In his closed and withdrew leaving her eyes very friendly Come out on the west veranda she said I know what you wish to say to me Besides I have something to confide to you too And Im very im patient to do It He followed her to the veranda She seated herself in the broad swing and moved so that her invitation to him was unmistakable Then when he had taken the place beside her she turned toward him very frankly and he looked up to encounter her beautiful direct gaze What is disturbing our friendship T she asked Do you know I dont I went to my room after luncheon and lay down on my bed and quietly delib erated And do you know what conclu slon I have reached What he asked That there Is nothing at all to disturb our friendship and that what I said to you bn the beach was foolish I dont know why I said it Im not the sort of girl who says such stupid things though I was apparently for that one moment And what I said about Gladys was childish I am not jealous of her Captain Selwyn Dont think me silly or perverse or sentimen tal will you I wish to ask you something With pleasure she snIdeGo ahead And she settled back fearless ly expectant Very well then he said striving to speak coolly It is this Will you marry me Eileen She turned perfectly white and stared at him stunned And he repeated his question speaking slowly unsteadilyNno said I cannot Why why you kuow that dont you Will you tell me why Eileen II dont know why I thinkl suppose that it is because I do not love you that way Yes he said that of course Is the reason I wonderdo you suppose that in timeperhapsyou might care for methat way I dont know She glanced up at him fearfully fascinated yet repelled I dont know she repeated pitifully Ills Itcant you help thinking of me in that way Cant you be as you wereNo I can no longer help it I dont want to help it Eileen Bl1t1 wish you to she said In a low voice It Is that which is com ing between us Oh dont you see it Is Dont you feel itfeel what It is doing to ui Dont you understand how It is driving me back into myself Whom am I to go to if not to you 1 What am I to do If your affection turns into thisthis different attitude toward me II loved you so dearly so fearlessly Tears blinded her She bent her head and they fell on the soft delicate stuff of her gown flashing downward in the sunlight Dear he said gently nothing Is altered between us I love you in that way too Ddo you really she stammered shrinking away from him Truly Nothing Is altered Noth ing of the bond between us Is weak ened On the contrary it Is strengthened You cannot understand that now But what you are to believe and always understand Is that our friend ship must endure I want to ask you something she said merely to prove that you are a little bit illogical May 11 He nodded smiling Could you and I care for each other more than we now do If we were mar nod I think he said Why she demanded astonished Evidently the had expected another- answer He made no reply and she lay back among the cushions considering what he had said the flush of surprise still lingering in her cheeks How can I marry you she asked when I wouldwould not care to endure aa caress from any man even from you oIt such things would spoil It alL dont love you that way Oh dont look at me that way Have I hurt you dear Captain Selwyn I did not mean to Oh what has become of our happiness What has become of it And she turned full length in the swing and hid her face In the silken pillows He looked down at her slowly real izing that it was a child he still was dealing with a child with a childs in nocence repelled by the graver phase of love unresponsive to the deeper emotions bewildered by the glimpse of the mature role his attitude had compelled her to accept That she al ready had reached that milestone and for a moment had turned involuntarily to look back and find her childhood atatJ r twa 7 a ready behind per rrigntenea ner Thinking perhaps of his own years and of what lay behind him he sighed and looked out over the waste of moor land where the Atlantic was battering the sands of Surf point Then his pa tient gaze shifted to the east and he saw the surface of Sky pond blue as the eyes of the girl who lay crouching In the cushioned corner of the swinging seat small hands clinched over the handkerchief a limp bit of stuff damp with her tears There is one thing he said that we mustnt docry about It must we Eileen MNoo He was silent and presently she said Ithe reason of itmy crying is bbbecause I dont wish you to be unhappyBut dear little girl I am not ReallyNo Why should I bp You do love me dont you You know IoBut not in that way Nno not in that way I wwlsh I didA thrill passed through him After a moment he relaxed and leaned for ward his chin resting on his clinched hands Then let us go back to the old footing Eileen Can we Yes we can and we will back to the old footing when nothing of deeptr sentiment disturbed us You know how it is A man who is locked up in paradise Is never satisfied until he can climb the wall and look over Now I have climbed and looked and now I climb back Into the garden of your dear friendship very glad to be there again wfh youvery very thank ful dear Will you welcome me back She lay quite still a minute then sat up straight stretching out both hands to him her beautiful fearless eyes brilliant as rain washed stars Dont go away she said Dont ever go away from our garden again No Eileen Is it a promisePhilip- Her T voice fell exquisitely low Yes a promise Do you take me hack Eileen Yes I take you Take me back too Philip Her hands tightened In his she looked up at him faltered waited then In a fainter voice Andand be of ggood courage II am not very old yet An hour later when Nina discovered them there together Eileen curled up among the cushions in the swinging seat was reading aloud Evidences of Asiatic Influence on the Symbolism of Ancient Yucatan and Selwyn astride a chair chin on his folded arms was listening with evident rapture v Chapter 21 0 ei end HOUSE to end MITrEnWOOD wind was the gayest l that had

that young matron had tasted Just enough to want more and Eileen too was evidently having a most delightful time So he settled Into the har ness of pleasure and was good to the pink and white ones and

that the charges against her suggested by the letters are false She affirms that she has endeavored to keep silent under provocation be cause her replies must necessarily take away the only chance my

been proved in thou sands of cases that they cannot giv eyou more for your money than th merchant doing business right in your choosde s with in preference to the local merchant Do the big city concerns do anything for your town 1 Do they her needftainly not On the other hand are th local tradesmen interested in the wel fare of your community They cer tainly are The local merchant has a family H wants a clean and prosperous town in Hbe provements he makes his store a cred it to the town when given the support The rapid and vigorous circu lation of money is as necessary to th well being of the merchants as plenty of good blood is to the body The more money that is spent at home the more money for churches schools etc yotu e business without customers and If you send yoTir money to the mail order houses that much custom is lost As a matter of fact there is no necessity forgoing elsewhere The local merchants carry always everything that can be found in the great cities and if you cant find what you want it is probably your own fault Give them the opportunity and they will be glad to serve you You buy only one bonnet or dress or suit of clothes at a time and what does It matter if you buy it In a large yoAtu higher prices than you would have to pay at home for the same article Did you ever stop to consider that when you spend your money in other places all you get is the goods you buy When you spend it at home you not only get the goods but the money comes back to you in better streets better schools or perhaps better patron age of your husband brother or son If you will read thee advertisements of your local merchants you will find that about everything needed is kept in stock These advertisements are generally true Not because the advertisers are any better than other people but they cant afford to misrepresent The store that advertises is the store that is known and the store that is known is the store that trade goes to and the store that trade goes to

that cotton pia primitive type collected by Prof N L Britton and William Harris in coastal thickets in the extreme southern part of Jamaica seems to be undoubtedly a wild plant It resembles a type of
