NEWS t II THE GATES AJAR COMO PARK ST PAUL GOOD GOODS MAKE GOOD Surprising List of Things Manufac tured In Your Own Town Did It ever occur to you tq consider what things and how many lines of things are manufactured in your own town The chances are that you have been buying various commodities from outside of town without knowing that you can get them right at homemade by neighbors of yours who are trying to build up a business and at the same time helping to build up the town t Many persons patronize mail order houses or go away to buy goods more because they are not aware of what the home market has to offer than be cause they think they are getting bet ter bargains outside What most towns need is a little course of education in the immediate home market line The producers and- manufacturers in many instances need education In that respect They need to know the value of letting other peo ple know what they make and have for sale Recently an enterprising home trade enthusiast in a Texas town compiled and published a list of goods manufactured and handled in his own town It surprised him as well as others The list was as follows Overalls and jumpers half tone cuts And etchings bank and store fixtures chili supplies crackers creamery prod ucts cornice supplies plumbers supplies macaroni laundries furniture flour mill products planing mill products saddlery and harness brooms cigars trunks stock aJid poultry medicines mattresses how cases and cabinets printing and binding upholstering acetylene gas works rubber and steel stamps IronI Awning and carpet renovating k meat products carriage and wagon fountain drinks ginners supplies wind mills and casing pressed brick coffins And caskets Not every town of course manufactures such a long list of articlesfromIcrackers to coffinsbut there are homemade products which should appeal to home people A little investigation will prove that thmore hdme manufactured goods in own town thin you ever dreamed yourI t The list above includes Perhaps you do not need windmills but you do need printing every now and then You will notice printing and binding in the list Printing and binding are done right here at home and at reasonable rates yet every once in awhile the printer discovers that somebody sends away for a job which could be done here Just as well and as reasonably Other lines of business also suffer because people dont seem to realize that the home product is a bargain from any point of viewThe moral is this Find out what your neighbors produce and offer be tore buying outside of the community and you may be agreeably surprised OBJECTIONABLE ADVERTISING How the Billboard Nuisance May Be ControlledtThe movement for the abolishment of the billboards Is more widespread and determined than ever before Ile ports reach us from all civilized coun tries that everywhere the warfare Is on while from various states in our k own land come gratifying reports of effective war upon this great evil says the Los Angeles Times Public sentiment has of late years been wonderfully aroused on this ter until now it is proving a formttlaI ble barrier to those who seek crate our landscapes by advertising questionable merchandise in an ob 4iectionable manner There are many ways in which the individual may publicityIfknown to a merchant that one of his signs offends himself and neighbors there is doubt of further argument being need ed If many come with like com plaints It will not be long before the billboards will have at least one advertiser less Advertising depends for its value upon Its power to win the favor of the masses If it be found that it has a contrary effect It will sqipn be discontinued Thus Is it possi ble for the people without legal proc cess to successfully control the use of the billboards by local business houses Especially is such suppression an easy matter In villages and towns In like manner also may any people prevent r local merchants from scattering post Iovertown to be later blown about the streets A little study of the ques tion will show how concerted effort by a few may effectually control all ob jectionable local advertising

correct for no one said a good word about Plan Plan He was commonly believed to have shown the white feather in the Crimea and never exposed himself where the lead was falling An English lady who In her younger days mingled with French society tells in her Foreign Courts and Foreign Homes a story as discreditable to Prince Napoleon as it is honorable to a French artist While the artist was painting the historical picture of the battle of the Alma which the emperor had ordered Prince Napoleon called at the painters studio to make known to him the facts On leaving hesnid he wished the prominent figure in the battle to bo himself mounted on his white charger He sent the horse to the artist so that he could paint its exact portrait When the picture was finished and in vitations were sent out for a private view the white charger was seen a prominent figure in the battle but without a rider On hearing of this terrible omission the prince sent an aiddecamp to ask the reason The honest artist said the horse should remain if the prince wished but no rider would be on it Tell the prince I have never yet painted a lie The hint was taken The prince ordered the horse to be rubbed

OF GLASS One That Once Cost Citizen George Francis Train 60000 A broken window pane once cost George Francis Train more than SCO 000 It was this way Citizen Traiii with the brains of twenty men in his head all pulling different ways went to Omaha in the spring of 1804 At that time he was the most talked of man in America He had not a thing but money He bought 5000 city lots and altogether spent several hundred thousand dollars He boarded at the Herndon House the best hotel in sight The quixotic Train was regular in only one thing his habits He always occupied the same seat at the table One morning a pane of glass was broken out of a window directly behind his chair He protested and was advised to change his seat He would not Instead he paid a servant 10 cents a min ute to stand between him and the draft After breakfast he expostulated with the landlord but received no sat isfactionNever mind said TrainuIn sixty days I will build a hotel that will ruin your business And he did The contract was let that day Scores of men were put to work The site selected was Ninth and Harney streets near the Missouri river Citizen Train went to New York and engaged Colonel Cozzens a noted caterer of that city as manager for his hotelThe building alone cost 40000 The furnishings cost 20000 more In the basement was a gas plant the only one west of St Louis The work was done on time and true to his word sixty days after he threatened the man ager of the Herndon House George Francis Train citizen of the earth opened his hotel which he called the Cozzens House The grand opening ball was attended by the governor of Nebraska and hIs staff the mayor of Omaha and many notables from other states The house was a blaze of glory and a scene of almost oriental magnifi cence Just when the big reception was well on there was a sudden flash a strange noise and thentotal dark ness The gasplant had collapsed The Cozzens House did a flourishing business for a year or two and the Herndon House was badly crippled Finally Train fell out with his man ager and the place was closed After the business part of Omaha moved back from the river the Hern don House declined and finally re lapsed

magistrate did What he had never done beforefor got all about itrrhe voodoo stopped it all This same negro related another In cident of his experience Once I was nearly killed by a voo doo black cat which used to come into the house I threw a stick and hit it It was a witch It tormented me I was ridden in dreams like a horse I suffered terribly I was dying I went to the voodoo doctor I paid him 5

bonnet Her face was like that of the cat But she did not come any closer to me Then she faded away That ended it The belief Is prevalent among the negroes that witches have power to as sume the forms of various animas In South Carolina a means employed to guard against such visitations is to scatter rice or similar small grains thickly over the floor In the form of a cross Before the witch can

of life unto life or of death If you die rejecting Christ it wouldbe better for you had Christ never died Some of you here tonight have been guilty of that which the devil was never guiltyyou have rejected Christ If the devil had a chance to accept the Saviour I believe h would if possible break thechain that bind him in a supreme effort to rush to the Saviour This is the moment of mercy for you One of the thieves on the cross was saved but the other missed the moment nad died under the very drippings of the bloodof Christ What is in Religion- If there is nothing in religion let us turn our homes into bar rooms and our churches into gambling dens If life ends with the gospel of mud what care we how soon it ends Will you halt between two opinions until you are old and you find your self greyheaded without God A mans hair should not be whiter than his life If you have reached tillage of sixty you have only two chances out of a hundred ofevei coming to Christ You may be nearing

CHAPTER VIn order to discover the xecret mission his friend had entrusted to dim Dudley continues his disguise and permits himself to be known as Henry Wilton He is puzzled over the note he had received asking him to call at the hank for money He Is called before Doddridge Knapp the King of Pine street the man who looks like a wolf employedbydeal 3L3 how could I hope to rouse that public sentiment What would my word count against that of the King of the Street- Where was the motive for the Crime Until that was made clear I could not hope to piece together the scraps of evidence into a solid struc ture of proof And what motive could there be that would reconcile the Doddridge Knapp who sought the life of Henry Wilton with the Dodd ridge Knapp of this morning who was ready to engage him in his con fidential business And had I the right to accept any part in his busi ness Fatigue and loss of sleep deepened the dejection of mind that oppressed i me with these insistent questions and as I vainly struggled against it car ried me at last into the oblivion of dreamless slumber The next I knew I was awaking tot e sound of breaking glass It was I cameJlbo from the cramped position

Porter and I have taken turns watch ever since Well its time he came out ssiia picky He cant be asleep after that rracket Say he called Harry Vhats the matter with you If youre dead let us know TZey appeared friendly but I hes Hated in framing an answerIWell have to break down the door I guess said Dicky Some thing must have happened And a resounding kick shook the panel Hold on I cried Whats wanted Oh said Dicky sarcastically Youve come to life again have- S you Im not dead yet tThen strike a light and let us in And take a look at that reminder youll find wrapped around the rock t heaved through the transom I thought it was open And Dicky went off into another series of chuckles in appreciation of his mis takeAll right I said I was not entirely trustful and after I had lighted 1 the stone thatthe gasjet picked up lay among the fragments of glass and J unwrapped the paper The sheet bore j only the words At Bortons at midnight- J Richmond v This was the name of the agent of I vthe Unknown who had sent the other note Dicky and his companion must then be protectors instead qf enemies l hastened to unlock the door and in walked my two visitors The first was a young man tall veilmade with a shrewd goodhu Snored countenance and a ready con- dent air about him I had no trou ijjlerin ticking him out as the amused 1 L70 cnvyerr r J0 er- rlsue Dicky The other was a blackbearded giant who followed stolidly in the wake of the younger man Youve led me a pretty chase said Dicky If it hadnt been for Pork Chops here I shouldnt have found you till the cows come home Well whats up now I asked Why you ought to know sat e Dicky with evident surprise But youd better be hurrying down to Bortons The gang must be there by now could only wonder who Borton might be and where his place was haveIby the arm and hurried me out into the darkness The chill night air served to nerve instead of depress my spirits as the garrulous Dicky uncon etingIhindI near the foot of Jackson where the smell of bilgewater the wash of the sewers grew stronger and the masts of vessels could just be seen in the darkness outlined against the sky Dicky sud denly stopped and drew me into a doorway Our retainer disappeared at the same instant and the street was apparently deserted Then out of the night the shape of a man approached with silent steps Fivesixteen croaked Dicky The man gave a visible start Sixteen five he croaked in re turnAny signs whispered Dicky Six men went upstairs across the street Every one of them did the sailordrunk act Sure they werent sailors Well when six coves goes up the same stairs trying the same dodge all inside of ten minutes I has a right to my suspicions And Darby Meeker aint been to sea yet that i knows on Darby Meeker exclaimed Dicky n a whisper And he drew a whistle under his breath What do you think of that Wilton I had no idea he was back from that wildgoose chase you sent him on It looks bad I admitted cautiously I dare say he isnt in good temperYoull have to settle with him for DickyII failed to see the amusing side of the prospect I wished I knew what Mr Meeker looked like The guard had melted away into darkness without another word Ithe we hurried forward with due cau Just past the next corner was- alighted room and the sound of voices broke the quiet walkledabout the sanded floor A bar took up- the side of the room next the en disreputabiiityAbout the room some at the tables some at the bar were numbers of stout roughlooking men with a few Greek fishermen and two or three sailorsBehind the bar sat a women whose appearance in that place almost start led me She might have been near ing seventy and a hard and evil life had left its marks on her bent frame and her gaunt face Her leathery peeks were lined deep and a hawk like nose emphasized the unpleasant suggestions conveyed by her face and figure But the most remarkable fea ture about her was ner eyes There was no trace of age in them Bright and keen as the eyes of a rat they gave me an unpleasant thrill as I felt her gaze fixed upon me when I entered the door arm in arm with Dicky It was as though they had pierced me through and had laid bare something I would have con cealed It was a relief to pass beyond her into a recessed part of the room where her gaze might waste itself on he back of my head Mother Bortons up late tonight said Dick thoughtfully as he ordered wineYou cant blame her for thinking that this crowd needs watching I suggested with as much of airiness as I could throwinto my manner Dicky shook his head tor a second and then resumed his lighthearted bantering way Yet I could see that he was preplexed and anxious about something that had come to his attention on our arrival Youll not want to attend to busi ness till all theboys are here asked DickyNot unless theres something to be done I responded dryly Dicky gave me a quick glance Of course he said with a laugh that was not quite easy not unless theres something to be done But I thought there was something Youve got a fine mind for thinking Dicky I replied You4 better culti vate it Well they say theres nothing like society for that sort of cultivation said Dicky withanother laugh They don t sag what kind but Ive got a t i pretty good stock to choose from He was at his ease in banter again but it struck unpleasantly on me that there was something behind Oh heres a queer friend he said suddenly looking at the door Id better speak to him on the matter of countersignsBy I said turning in my chair to survey the newcomer- I saw the face for an instant The man wore a souwester and he had drawn his thick rough coat up as though he would hide his head under the collar Cheek and chin I could see were covered by a thick blonde beard His movements were apparently clumsy but his figure was lithe and sinuous And his eyes Once seen they never could be forgotten At their glance beard and souwester dropped away before my fancy and I saw in my inner vision the man of the serpent glance who had chilled my spirit when I had first put foot in the city It flashed on me in an instant that this man was the same man dis guised who has ventured into the midst of his enemies to see what he might learn of their plans As I watched Dicky advance and greet the newcomer with apparent in quiry a low harsh voice behind gave me a start of surprise This is your wine I thinkand- a lean wrinkled arm passed over my shoulder and a wrinkled face came near my own- I turned quickly It was Mother Borton leering at me with no appar ent interest but in her errand What are you doing here asked the crone in a voice still lower Youre not the one they take you to be but youre none the less in danger What are you doing with his looks and in this place Look out for that man youre with and the other Yes sir her voice rose A small bottle of the white in a minute sir I understood her as Dicky and the newcomer came to the table and tool seats opposite I commanded my face to give no sign of suspicion but the warning put me on the alert I had come on the supposition that I was to meet the band to which Henry Wil ton belonged Instead of being among friends however it seemed now that I was among enemies Its all right said Dicky careless ly Hes been sent Thats lucky said I with equa unconcern We may need an extra hand before morning The newcomer could not repress a triumphant flash in the serpent eyes Im the one for your job he said hoarsely his face as impassive as a stone wall What do you know about the job I asked suspiciously Only what Ive been told he an sweredAnd that is =That its a job for silence secrecy and Spondulickjs said with a laugh as the other hesitated for the wordJust 50 said the man And what else I continued press ing him firmly Well he admitted hoarsely I learned as how there was to be a change of place tonight and I might be needed- I looked at him inquiringly Per haps I was on the threshold of knowl edge of this cursed business from the mouth of the enemy- I heard as how the boy was to be put in a safer place he said wagging his head with affected gravity Some Imp put it into my brain to try him with an unexpected bit of newsOh I said coolly thats all at tended to The change was made yes terdayThe effect of this announcement was extraordinary The man started with an hell you say he exclaimed In a low smooth voice far different from the harsh tone he had used thus far Then he leaped to his feet with uncontrollable rage Trickedby God he shouted impulsively and smote the table with his fistHis outburst threw the room Into confusion Men sprang from their chairs Glasses and bottles fell with clinking crash Oaths and shouts arose from the crowd Damn you Ill have it out of ouF said the man with suppressed fury his voice once again smooth and low Where is the boy He smote the table again and with hat stroke the false beard fell from his chin and cheek and exposed the malignant face distorted with rage feeling of horrible repulsion cams aver me and r should have struck at hat serpents head but for a startling occurrence Ae he spoke a wild scream rose upon the air and as it achced through the room the lights vent out IThescr am was repeated and after silence there rosia 2d1 3 uuurus 01 snouts anti oaths mingled with the crash of tables and the clink of breaking glass and crockery as tho men in the room fought their way to the door Oh my God Im cut came in a shriek out of the darkness and clamor and there followed the flash of a pistol and a report that boomed like a can non in that confined place My eyes had not been idle after the warning of Mother Borton and in an instant I had decided what to do I had figured out what I conceived to be the plan of the house and thought I knew a way of escape There were two doors at the rear of the room facing me One led as I knew to the kitchen the other opened I reasoned on a stair to the lodgingroom above Before the scream that accom panied the extinction of the lights had died away I had made a dive beneath the table and lifting with all flY might had sent it crashing over with my enemy under it With one leap I cleared the remaining table that lay between me and the door And with the clamor behind me I turned the knob and bounded up the stairs three steps at a timeITo be continued TO SAVE TIME IN KITCHEN Few Moments Gathered In Here and There Amount to Much To get best results with rice wash quickly in cold water and drop slowly Into water that Is boiling rapidly Rice prepared in this fashion will be soft and mealy yet whole in 20 min utes or half an hour Have plenty of water in the kettle and drain the rice directly it Is cookedbefore the water stops boiling Save fuel by washing beans and all dried fruits until the water poured off is clear Then soak over night cover ing them with warm not cold water To get best results with macaroni do not break it before cooking Drop It whole into salted boiling water cook 20 minutes drain In a colander coil it in the baking dish pour cream sauce over it and finish off with grat ed cheese and bits of butter Bake golden brown You lose much of the substance in breaking it in
