such Two telephones in a city area double tax on the citizens The City Council should grant a single franchise and should take care in that franchise that the company re ceives a fair return on its investment and on the other hand that the citizens are protected against exhorbi tant rates and poor service It is allegedon the part of the East Tennessee Company that if should be given a franchise because It can give outside connections that the Old Kentucky cannot This may he true now but I have heard that a month or more ago the East Tennessee contemplated leaving the local field entirely and that there were ne gotiations on foot to have the Old Kentucky handle all outside imsi ness This is done at many points ir Kentucky and at other places An arrangement like that would obviate a double tax on the merchant and would secure to all the best service that can now possibly be givenby the two companies Jt is not a question between thf two companies As a citizen I care for neither of them

followed him down the pier struggling against the gusts Do we cross the bay I asked as Mrs Knapp clung to my arm Its not safe for you in a small boat ctrrheresa tug waiting forus Mrs Knapp explained A moment later we saw its lights and the fire of its engine room shot a cheerful glow into the storm The little vessel swung uneasily at its berthas we made our way aboard and with shouts of men and clang of bells it was soon tossing on the dark waters of the Day The cabin of the tug was fitted with a shelftable and over It swung a lSJZr N3ilz4rlAS7 7N Wfth1asr lamp of brass that gave a dim ligh- to the little room Mrs Knapp seate- herself here spread out the paper I had given her and studied the diagram and the jumble of letters with anxious attention uIt is the same she said at last uin part at least The same as whatI asked As the one I got word of tonight you know she replied But she continued this gives a different place I was toga to the crossroad here indicating the mark at the last branch Im glad to hear that said I talc InIto point to a different place too and I really hope that the gentleman who drew this map is a good way off from the truth Where did you get this ex claimed Mrs Knapp- I described the circumstances in as few words as I could command They are ahead of us she said In alarm They have started first I suppose was my suggestion And they have the right road Then our only hope is that they may not know the right place God grant it said Mrs Knapp She was silent for a few minutes and t saw that her eyes were filled with tears Then she saiduNow tell me about Henry Wilton how he died and when I told the tale as it had happened and as I told it I read in the face be fore me the varying emotions of alarm horror and grief that were stirred by its incidents But one thing I coul not tell her The wolfface I had see in the lantern flash in the alley I could not name nor describe to the wife of Doddrjdge Knapp Mrs Knapp bowed her head in deep gloomy thought- I feared it yet he would not listen to my warnings she murmured He would work his own way1 Then she looked me suddenly straight in the face And why did you take his place his name Why did you try todo his work hen you had seen the dreadful end to which ft had brought him 1 I confessed that it was bal fhro gh the insistence of Detective Coogan that I was Henry Wilton half through the course of events that seemed to mane It the easiest road to reach the vengeance that I had vowed to bring the murderer of my friend You are bent 0n avenging hiin asked Mrs Knapp thoughtfully u I have promised

Recollection of the candid statement of opinion I had received from the daughter of the housed Oh you did very well said Mrs Knapp kindly but no one could have been successful in that house Luella Was quite outraged over it but I managed to quiet her retaineder= I stammered in much confus ionMrs Knapp gave me a keen glance You know she has not she said Well continued Mrs Knapp when I saw you and guessed that Something had happened to Henry Wilton and found that you knew little ot what was going on I changed the plan of campaign I did not know that you were one to be trusted but I saw hat you could be used to keep the others on a false scent for you de ceived everybody but us I would have spoken when I found you for what you are said Mrs tnapp but I thought until the Liver nore trip that you could serve me best is you were doing ultwas blind work I said uIt was blind enough for you not or me I was deceived in one thins owjeverj I thought that you had no japers nothing from Henry that could help or hurt The first night ou came to us I had Henrys room horoughly searched Ob I was indebted to you for that attention Iexclaiined ul gave nur riends of the other house the credit Mrs Knapp smiled again I thought it necessary It was the hance that you did not sleep there hat night that kept this paper but Ofiay hands weeks ago I have always kept it with me I aid condueded much at the situation of the boy Iat I did not dare go near him Henry nd I decided that his hiding place as not safe We had talked of mov HJ him a feW days before you came hen I found that Henry had disap cared I was anxious to make the cuange but I could not venture to at ofdl was assured from Mother Borton hat they dIdnot know where the bo1 vis hidden and I let the matter rest But a few days agoon Saturday The sent me word that she thought hey had found the place Then it ame to me to sendyou to Livermore vith the other boyoh I hope no warm came to the little fellow she claimed anxiously Ees safe in my rooms in charge of Wainwright I saiduHe got back on the morning train and can be land for the asking uOh Im so glad said Mrs Knapp I was afrafd something would nap pen to him burl had to take desper ate chances Well you see my plan succeeded They all follpwed you 3ut when I went to the hiding place she bdy wag gone Henry had moved him weeks ago and had died before he could tell me Then I thought you mlght know more than you had told nethat Henry Wilton might have got you to help him when he made the hange and I wrote to you And the key I said remembering he expression of the note Did you mean this diagram 1 No said Mrs Knapp meant the cey to our cipher code I was looking Ayer Henrys letters for some hint of i hiding place and could not find the coy to he cipher I thought you nIght have beep given one I found nine this afternoon though and there vas no need of it so it didnt matter ifter all The pitching and tossing of the boat rag ceased And a minute later with lang of bells and

Wonderful Performance Easily Accomplished r tMany seemingly wonderful tricks ar ryfounded on certain principles of math ezn tics which the most unskilled per i Ion can take advantage of in a way to convince others that he Js gifted with I strange occult powers For instance you have your friend select any dom no he desires out of a heap not letting you see it You then tell him to multi ply either of the numbers of spots it by 5 then add 7 then double thi- result and finally add the second num youwhatyour own mind 14 from this sum and the remaining digits will show the numbers of spots on the domino he selectedI t Supposing he selects the domino with the 3 and 0 on it Following your directions he multiplies the 3 by 5 making 15 adds 7 making 22 doubles tthe result making 44 adds the other number 0 and tells you that the sum Is 50 You then subtract 14 from the 50 leaving 30 and the two digits 3 and G show the spots on the domino Learn this formula and you will have something good to mystify your friends with MORAL FROM A TOAD it Lesson In Kindness Taught bya Dumb Creature One day a gardener was digging up the dying geraniums in order to plant the tulip bulbs before the frost set in 1when his shovel hit on somethin harder than the moist earth and to his surprise he saw two huge toads at his feet One of the toads had evidently been hurt by his shovel for he had difficulty in moving while the other hopped along at a lively rater The gardener had time to spare so he leaned on his shovel and watched the little creatures Back came the well toad to where the other sat and with a painful hop the hurt toad was wasRtaken to a place of safety by him The man continued his work but ev ery now and then he thought of the kindness of one toad toward the other and he wondered how the little dis abled one was The next day his won derings ceased for he found the little toad lying dead in the path The othe one had disappeared mysteriously and the gardener never saw it again but he remembered his humane feeling to creaturelGood String Trick i String tricks always take with chil dren and they are easy to do as nearly all children carry string in their pockets To do the trick arrange two pieces of string each a yard long in the manner shown In the picture One end of the first string Is tied around each of the girls wrists and I ABBANQEMENT OF STRINGS the second string is in like manner tied around the boys wrists being first passed inside the girls string Now the four hands are bound and the trick is to release the captive hands To do this the boy must pass the bight of his own string from the arm outward through the loop which encircles one of the girls wrists over the hand and back again when it will be found that the two will be freer from each other The string about the wrists must be untied separately Philadelphia Ledger e Why Lightning Turns Milk 8eur It is well known that milk often turns sour during a thunderstorm and 0 various reasons have been assigned lays the Chicago News One of the rea gasesvtric acid and that some of this acid mixes with the milk thus souring it But the most probable reason is that a the souring is due to the growth of a fungus in the milk which forms atx other times than during a storm but more freely then because the atmospheric conditions favor it Scientists have investigated this matter and they say that milk

time a very satisfactory struc- turea The founda 3 tion consists of- r4Y four two by fours sj ri t r each eight feet long They are set upon the ground on edge and braces placed between them before the floor which is six by eight feet is nailed to them Upon this floor erect a frame consisting of two Ashaped end frames and a strip at the top for the comb Cover with ordinary shiplap lumber and paint to increase its durability The door In the front end should be two feet wide by 2 feet high and there should be a small opening in the other end near the gable for venti lation Such a house can be readily moved about on clover pasture and as the feeding can be done in different places the spread of the resulting fer tility will be worth while SALTING SHEEP One Man Who Has Found It Better Not to Provide Salt Box Keep salt before the sheep con stantly seems to be the general idea among farmers For years I followed the plan of salting sheep regularly or kept salt before them constantly I often doubted the policy but habit wasstrong and I continued the prac tice up to a few fears ago when I practically discontinued salting save during the winter when on dry feed and then rather sparingly explains a writer in Farm and Home The results have been very satisfactory When sheep have access to salt they go to it many times a day thus creating an abnormal thirst If water Is not at hand they suffer more from thirst than for want of salt were it withheld From this great thirst they will drink from any stag nant pool much more water than they need taking into their stomachs great numbers of dis easebreeding germs While gait may stop indigestion when taken In proper quantities it is poisonous when taken too freely There used to be under my sheep barn a box with a lid so arranged that stock would lift it and get salt an tthen the lid would drop down again keeping out all dirt and trash This lids dropping down could be heard frequently day and night showing how often the box was visited A hard beaten path led from the salt box to the watering place about eight rods away I It occurred to me that there was no use of all this the sheep were both eating too much salt and drink ing too much water I noticed also that they had bowel trouble Since removing the cause of this great thirst my flock do not take more than onehalf the water are quite free from bowel troubles and are as con tented as before I do not advocate feeding no salt at all but give much less than is used by many WALK OF THE HORSE Great Difference in the Gait of Even r of Same Breed i There is much difference in differ ent Individual horses of the same and every breed in the matter of walking some having quicker steps and a longer stride which means the covering of greater distance in less time I have found that there are slow medium and fast walkers In every breed says a writer in Farmers Review As in running pacing and trotting the walk can be made faster by proper handling in nearly all cases but some animals improve more than others It would be impossible to make a good fast walker out of a horse whose step was very short I have noticed no difference in speed at the walk In the light breeds of horses and others that were fast walkers The action in walk as in trot or other gaits is largely inherited I have owned many horses that came from the same family running istsecond third and fourth generation almost all of them having the same kind of action both in walktrot and the sad dIe gaits I am however unable to say all were good at flatfoot walk but many of them were and it is my opinion that while i think the good walk vis largely inherited it can be much improved by a good rider or driver I do not think the feed given a horse can affect his walk Of course a horse In good condition feels well and will travel faster than one not well fed but this is as far as feed would enter into the question A Dry Pen The pens of many pigs are not dry and with wet pens comedirty pens Solorig as the pen of the hog Is dry he will be clean for he Is by nature a clean animal The hogs quarters should be so well drained that they will rbe even damp and they should be cleaned out often It is a mistake to use the hbgyard as aplgcecinwhich manure can he made Keep everything dryland JMLY coidi tions that Invite ftiafaW t ait J r J flr tr 4 i 1 THE WINCHESTERI t NEWSI The Best t
