fruits few are more de Jfefous than elderberries Our fore rtHtiers who had to depehd upon the wild fruits alone when the country was new learned many arts that seem almost forgotten In these later days mad one of them was the use of elderberries They gathered them stemmed washed and packed them in deep earthen jars until within three inches of the top and then filled the Jar with Orleans molasses The berries kept in tWs way too and made delicious pies trough the long bleak winter when good things were scarce Another way which some of us remember was to dry them in the sun and this too gave many an appetizing dish that other wise would have been forever lacking Somehow the pioneer woman found her greatest joy in providing good things for her family One wpnders if the women of today who have ca leers know as much real happiness as did the pioneer women of fifty years ago But elderberries still grow and they are still good Let the boys gather some and try an elderberry pie Make a rich crust and pinch it up high around the edge so that the pie will not be as some one said all ifence and no pasture Fill It with the clean berries add a tablespoonful of good vinegar and a teacup of sugar Jute which a tablespoonful of flour has been stirred Cover with a top crust and bind the edges together with a strip of cloth or some of the rich juices will be lost sure Bake forty minutes A delicious sauce can be made with apples and elderberry juice or a jelly can be made in the same way Cook apples and berries together one part of berries to three or four of apples train the juice and

King method of road dragging has a theory which practi e has demonstrated to be correct It is that all clay and gumbo roads should be dragged with a list drag after each rain or wet spell The drag smooths down the rough places and fills up the ruts When the sun dries up the road pelIThe discovery of this method and tho more important discovery of Mr King were largely accidental Years ago he lived on a small but well Improved farm near Iaitland He was not par tlcularly interested in the good road movement as a national or state issue but the four miles of road from his farm to Maitland were of great interest to him says the St Louis GlobeDemo crat The road was of that soft sticky red clay that in wet weather clings to the wagon wheels In great lumps and dry weather Is as hard as a rock and almost as Injurious to wagon tires Passing wagons In wet weather would dig deep ruts and when the road dried up the ruts would remain At best the road was very poor Many times when wheat was selling at a good price and Mr King had many bushels of it the road would be so bad that he could not haul it to the markek and when the road finally became passable the market would be low again After many experiments he con structed a small light drag using two old timbers connected with light strips and began to drag the road in front of his residence After each rain he would run the drag over it and when the sun came out and the road dried up It was In perfect condition When he began to drag the road many of his neighbors told other neighbors that King was crazy Others told King himself that he was crazy Others who did not say anything believed he was crazy But the experiments proved that Kings method was successful and he extended his operations until he was dragging all the road In front of his farm His neighbors took it up and in a few months the road from his farm to Maitland was as good as any in Missouri George B Ellis secretary of the state board of agriculture heard of Mr Kings good roads methods and Invited him to speak at the farmers institute In his neighborhood He accepted and being an enthusiast on the subject he made several converts He was engaged for a series of lectures and has Isimeetings have been held In various parts of Missouri and hundreds of con verts have been made After every rain In Missouri hundreds of farmers drag the roads In

he said rapidly Just wanted to save the market I guess If Omega had hone five points lower there would have been the sickest times in the Street that weve seen since the Bank of California closed and the shop across the way pointing his thumb at the Exchange had to be shut up l But maybe it wasnt Decker you know Thats Just what was rumored onthe Street you know I suspected that my little broker jknew more than he was willing to tell but I forbore to press him further and him the order to buy all the Dlegastock he could pick up under t fifty Vlh the Exchange all was excitement and the first call brought a roar of struggling brokers I could make nothing of the clamor but my nearest s neighbor shouted in my ear A strong market1 v It looks that way I shouted back It certainly was strong In noise I made put at last that prices were being held to the figures of the morn ings session and in some cases were forced above them lr Fortyfive fortyseven fiftyfive Omega was going up by leaps I V Blessed the forethought that had sug v Bested to me to put a limit on Wall l Bridge at fifty The contest grew t warmer I could follow with difficulty i c i7f Y t 1 Ct2 BOIE17fO1 the course of the proceedings but J knew that Omega was bounding up wardThe call closed amid animation but the excitement was nothing compared to the scene that had followed the t llin the morning Omega stood at eighty asked and seventyeight bid and the ship of the stock gambler was again sailing on an even keel The session was over at last and Wallbridge and Eppner handed mt their memoranda of purchases You couldnt pick Omega off the bushes this afternoon Mr Wilton said Wallbridge wiping his bald heart vigorously Theres fools at all times and some of em were here and read to drop what they had but not many gathered in six hundred for you but had to fight for it I thanked the merry broker and gave him a check for his balance Eppner had done better with a wider margin but all told had added but three thousand one hundred shares to my list I wondered how much of this had been sold to me by my employer Plainly if Doddridge Knapp was needing Omega stock he would have to pay for it There was no one to be seen as reached Room 15 The connecting door was closed and locked and no sound came from behind It I turned to ar range the books to keep from a bad habit of thinking over the inexplicable An hour passed and no Doddridge Knapp It was long past office hours Just as I was considering whether my duty to my employer constrained me wait longer I caught sight of an envelope that had been slipped under the door It was in cipher but it yielded to the key with which Dodd ridge Knapp had provided me made it out to be this Come to my house tonight Bring your contracts with you Knapp I was thrown into some perplexity by this order For a little I suspected a trap but on second thought this seemed unlikely The office furnished as convienient a place for homicidal diversions as he could wish if these were In his intention and possibly a visit to Doddridge Knapp in his own house would give me a better clue to his habits and purposes and a better chance of bringing home to him his awful crime than a month together on the Street The clocks were pointing past eight when I mounted the steps that led to Doddridge Knapps door had some thing of trepidation after all as rang the bell for I was far from being sure that Doddridge Knapp was above car rying out his desperate purposes in his own house and I wondered wheth er should ever come out again once was behind those massive door had taken the precaution to find a smaller revolver suitable for an evening call as I assured myself but it lid not look to be much of a protec tion in case the house held a dozen ruffians of the Terrill brand How ever must risk it gave my name to the servant who opened the door This way he said quietly and In a moment was ushered into a small plainlyfurnished room and at a desk covered with papers sat Doddridge Knapp the picture of the Wolf In his den Sit down Wilton said he with grim affability giving his hand You wont mind if an old man doesnt get upI made some conventional reply Sorry to disappoint you this after noon and take up your evening he said but t found some business that needed more immediate attention There was a little matter that had to be looked after in person And the Wolfs fangs showed in a cruel smile which assured me that the little mat ter had terminated unhappily for the other man I airily professed myself happy to be at his service at any time Yes yes he said but lets see your memoranda Did you do well this 7 afternoonNoo returned apologetically Not so well as I wished He took the papers and looked over them carefully Thirtyone hundred he said re flectively Those sales were all right Well was afraid you couldnt get above three thousand I didnt get more than two thousand in the other Boards and on the Street That was the best I could do said modestly They averaged at sixtyfive Omega got away from us this afternoon like a runaway horse Yes yes said the King of the Street studying his papers with drawn brows Thats all right Ill have to wait a bit before going further I bowed as became one who had no idea of the plans ahead And nowsald Doddridge Knapp turning on mea keen and lowering gaze Id like to know what call you have to be spying on me I opened my eyes wide In wonder Spying I dont understand No said he with something between a growl and a snarl Well maybe you dont understand that either And he tossed me a bit of paper- I felt sure that I did not not My ignorance grew Into amazement as I i 7 k t I readThe slip bore the words l have bought Crown Diamond Whats the limit Wilton rjsaidknow growled Doddridge Knapp with his eyes flashing and the yellow gray mustache standing out like bris tles The fangs of the Wolf were in sightWell youll have to look some where else for him I said firmly L never saw the note and never bought a share of Crown Diamond Doddridge Knapp bent forward and looked for an instant as though he would leap upon me His eye was the eye of a wild beast in anger If I had written that note should have gone through the window without stopping for explanations As I had not written it sat there coolly and looked him in the face with an easy conscience Well well he said at last relax ing his gaze I almost believe you Theres no use going any further Mr Knapp unless you believe me al together I see you understand what I was going to say he said quietly But if you didnt send that who dld7 Well if I were to make a guess I should say it was the man who wrote this I tossed him In turn the note I had received in the afternoon bidding me sell everything The King of the Street looked at it carefully and his brows drew lower and lower as its Import dawned on him The look of angry perplexity deepened on his face Where did you get this- I 7 detailed the circumstances The anger that flashed in his eyes was more eloquent than the outbreak of curses expected to hear Um he said at last with a grim smile Its lucky after all that you had something besides cotton in that skull of yours Wilton- A fool might have been caught by it I said modestly There looks to be trouble ahead he said Theres a rascally gang in the market these days And the King of the Street sighed over the dis honesty that had corrupted the stock gamblers trade smiled inwardly but signified ray agreement with my employer Well who wrote them he asked almost fiercely They seem to come from the same hand Maybe youd better ask that fellow who had his eye at your keyhole when left the office this noon Who was that The Wolf gave a startled look Why didnt you tell me He was a wellmade quick lithe fellow with an eye that reminded me of a snake gave chase to him but couldnt overhaul him He squirmed away in the crowd guess Why didnt you tell me he said in a steady voice- I didnt suppose it was worth coming back for after I got Into the street And besides you were busy Yes yes you were right you are not to comeof course of course The King of the Street looked at me curiously and then said smoothly But this Isnt business And he plunged into the papers once more There were over nine thousand Tares sold this afternoon and got only five thousand of them suppose Decker picked the others ap I said The King of the Street did me the 3onor to look at me in amazement Decker he roared How did you Then he paused and his voice dropped to its ordinary tone I reckon youre right What gave you the idea 1 I frankly detailed my conversation with Wallbridge As I went on fancied that the bushy brows drew down and a little anxiety showed be neath them- I had hardly finished my account when there was a knock at the door and the servant appeared Mrs Knapps compliments and she would like to see Mr Wilton when you are done ho said- I could with difficulty repress an exclamation and my heart climbed Into my throat I was ready to face the Wolf in his den but here was a differ ant matter I recalled that Mrs Knapp was a more intimate acquaintance of Henry Wiltons than Doddridge Knapp had been and I saw Niagara ahead of my skiff Yes yes quite likely said my employer referring to my story of Wall bridge I heard something of the kind from my men Ill know tomor row for certain I expect I forgot to tell you that the ladies would want to see you They have missed you lately And the Wolf motioned me to the door where the servant waited Here was a predicament I was missed and wantedand by the ladies My heart dropped back from my throat and I felt It throbbing in the lowest recesses of my bootheels as I rose and followed my guide If hp rljnll1l oUt a t a s a Twentysix whales were caarhi one week off the coast of

SURROUNDINGS Employees f Plant Combining Beauty and Commercialism The appearance of many towns and cities Is spoiled by unkempt surround ings of business sites and seldom is any attempt made to improve and beautify these places The plan Is being tried in Brooklyn N Y how ever to Interest the employees of a company in improvement work and the story of how an esprit de corps came to replace a dont care feeling in the personnel of one of the largest sin gle traction concerns In the country Is an interesting one Some time ago the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company adopted a policy of beautifying as far as possible the dif ferent portions of its property It was a pet Idea of Sir Winter Its presi dent that the mere fact that a struc ture is built for commercial purposes is no excuse for its being hideously ugly This was quite a reversal of old tra ditions but It has already gone partly into effect The great new Williams burg power station is the companys most striking exposition of this new policyBeginning was made at the construction shop of the elevated lines at the foot of Thirtyninth street The yard that surrounds this shopformerly a passenger terminal stationwas clean ed of the litter of old locomotives and discarded coaches These were sold when possible and given away for firewood In other cases Last spring the shop foremen were Informed that the railroad would proceed to lay out the edge of the yard with grass plots and flower beds Similar steps were taken at the other ele rated shops at East New York Fresh Pond road and at Thirtysixth street The same methods of decoration that proved so successful on the companys property at Brighton Beach were put effectThen the surprising part of the programme Shopmen displayed an astonishing amount of Interest In the plans for beautifying the property They organized into bands and early on summer nights reported after hours for work on the shop grounds Theirs was entirely a voluntary procedure They showed an interest in the whole project It was a new spirit showing ItselfNor was that all The men from lathe and plane and drill press worked alongside the laborers and then they got together with the shop foremen and made a new proposal Lets buy big flags big fine Amer ican flagsto float over every shop of this company and show folks when they go riding by that there are good Americans working under the roofs So the big movement started men all wanted to subscribe TheI dimes and an occasional quarter the order of the dayand when they were done the foremen topped off the list for the big flags The railroad company put up high steel poles and there has been a series of flag raisings all summer Everj elevated shop now flies its flag as regularly as a military post Out at the newest shop in Fresh Pond road the transportation men watched the big pole and flag of the shopmen ascend So the guards motormen and conductors of the trains running there bought a flag and had the company erect a second steel pole for their flag Other plans of the same sort are under way The Billboard Fight An ordinance which is expected to force billboards from the residence districts was recently approved by the Chicago council building committee It requires billboard companies to se cure consent of twothirds of the prop erty owners on both sides of the street before erecting a billboard in any block In the residence district Any block In which a majority of the lots are occupied by residences is to be con sidered for the purpose of the ordi nance a residence neighborhood Strong protests were made by the rep resentatives of the billboard companies when the ordinance was first consid ered by the building committee but no further objections were made at the time of its approval energy being re served for action later but it Is believed that this ordinance will even tually drive the billboard from resi dence districts School Gardens All the available space not needed for play should be put Into school gar dens and if the school grounds prove of insufficient extent an effort should be made to obtain the use of a vacant lot nearby Each child should have a plot for its own and should be protected in such ownership Not only must the children be taught to care for their own but they must learn to respect and protect the rights of oth erstSo general has become the inter est in school gardens that it is now possible In many states to get teachers trained in the work Children should not be deprived of playtime but every encouragement should be lent to carry tome of the work on in the home gar fen and there or at the schoolyard do lertain garden work on Saturdays Local Retailers Meet Prices Do the catalogue houses sell goods cheaper than the retail dealers do 1 No they do
