The Council considers it advisable to proceed with tho macadamizing of all the streets in the Cily,
feeling that this is the most economical course which can be adopted,
ami after making thorough estimates, they are confident thnl for a
further sum of 880,500.00, every

and in doing tli is, tlic present taxpayers will obtain a present benefit,
at the lowest rate of taxation. Our
only means of affording good streets,
is to spread the payment uf such

CHAPTER IX.   Continued
The fuur of an enemy silently stalking him had fllled his days with terror.
Now that in* regarded death aw certain,
his cowardice dropped away lik*j a discarded cloak.
"I don'l nek much," ho said simply;
"only, lor God's sake, kill me hero!
Don't surrender mo i<> the government!
At least, in the olher fellows know
that I wan dead before their plans wero
betrayed."
"I told you." said Saxon in a iluil
voice, "ihai I Iiiiii 110 designs on you.
l meanl Itl I told you 1 had forgotten.
I meant U!"
As hi- spoke, Saxon's head dropped
forward on hla chest, and lu* stood
breathing heavily, The moonlight,
falling full .ui his faco, showed such
heart-broken misery as might havo
belong,'.i to tin* visage of Borne unresting ghosl In mi Inferno. Mis eyes
wen* ihi- eyes uf utter despair, and
the hand tliat held the pistol hung
limp at his side, tin* weapon lying loose
in its palm. Rodman stood wide-eyed
before him. Hud he already been killed and returned to life, lie eould hardly
have been more astonished, and, when
Saxon at last raised his face and spoke
again, the astonishment was greater
than ever.
"Take your gun," said the painter,
raising his hand slowly, and presenting the weapon stock ilrst. "If you
want to kill me—go ahead."
Hodman, for an instant, suspected
some subterfuge; then, looking into the
eyes hefore him, he realized that they
were too surcharged with sadness to
harbor either vengeance or treachery.
He could not fathom the meaning, but
he realized tliat from this man he had
nothing to fear. He slowly reached
out his hand, and. when he had taken
the pistol, he put it away in ills pocket.
Saxon laughed bitterly.
"So that's the answer!" he muttered.
Without a word, the palriter turned,
and walked toward the front of the
cathedral; without a word, Rodman
fell In by his side, and walked with
him. When they hod gone a square,
Saxon was again himself except for a
stonily set face. Hodman was wondering llow to apologize. Carter had never
been a liar. If Curler said he had no
thought of vengeance it was true, and
Hodman had Insulted him witli tlic
surmise.
Finally, lhe, thin man inquired in n
different and much softer voice:
"What ore you doing in Puerto Frio?"
"ll hns nothing to do with revenge
or punishment," replied Saxon, "and I
don't want to hear intrigues."
A quarter of an hour later, they
reached the main plaza, Hodman sllll
mystified and Saxon walking on aimlessly at his side. He had no definite
destination. Nothing mattered. After
a long silence, Rodman demanded:
"Aren't you taking a chance—risking
it in Puerto Frio?"
"I don't know."
There was another pause, broken at
last ity Rodman:
"Take this from me. Get nt onee in
touch With the American negation, and
keep in touch! Stand on your good
behaviour. You may get away wilh
it." He interrupted himself abruptly
with the question, "Hnve you been
keeping posted on South Amcrlcnn
affairs of late?"
"I don't know who is President," replied Saxon.
"Well, I'll Up you ,,ff. The only men
who held nny direct proof about—
about the $200,000 iu gold tliat lefl
about the same time you did"--Saxon
winced—"went Into oblivion with the
last revolution. Time Is a great restorer and so many similar affairs have
Intervened that you are probably forgotten. Hul. If I were you, I would get
through my affairs nnd -beat It. It'*-
n wise boy that is not where he is,
when he's wanted by some one lie doesn't want."
Saxon made no reply.
"Say," commented the irrepressible
revolutionist, as Ihey Strolled into the
arcade at  tin* side ..f ttie main  plaza,
"you've changed a bit in appearance,
You're a bit heavier, aren't yuu?"
Saxon ditl not seem to hear.
The plaza was gay with the life of
the miniature capital.  Officers strolled
about in iheir brightest uniforms,
blowing cigarette smoke and Ogling
the Kenoritas,  wbo  looked  shyly   back
from under their mantillas.
From tlo* band-stand blared the national nir. Nat ivex and foreigners

CHAPTER X.
Al  the Pnlnre, the Americans were
-'Pirated,     Snxon   was   ushered   Int,,
a small room, barely furnished, its
one window was barred, and the one
door that penetrated its thtck wall was
locked from the outside, It scented
Incredible that under such stimulus
his memory should remain torpid. This
must he un absolute echo from tho
past—yei, lie could not romember. But
Hodman remembered and evidently
ihe government remembered,
About thr same hour, Mr. Partridge
called at lhe "Frances y Ingles," where
he learned that Senor Saxon had gone
out. Mc called again late In the evening   Saxon had not returned,
The following morning, the Hon.
Charles Pendleton, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the
United States of America, read Saxon's
letters of Introduction. The letters
sufficiently established the standing of
the artist to assure him ids minister's
inlcresl. Partridge was dispatched t<>
Die hotel io bring tlic traveller to thc
legation. Partridge came back within
tlie hour, greatly perturbed. Having
found lhat Saxon luul not returned
during tht! night, and knowing tlie customs of the country, he hail spent a
half-hour in investigating by channels
known to himself, He learned, at the
end of much questioning and cross-
questtoning) that the senor, together
witli another gentleman evidently also
an Americano del Nordo, had passed
the slreel-door late in tho evening,
with military escort.
Mr. Partridge hastened lo his legation al a rale of speed subversive of all
Puerto Frio traditions, in Puerto Frio,
haste is held to be an affront to dignity, and dignity is esteemed.
The Hon. Charles Pendleton listened
lo his subordinate's reporl with rising
choler.
His diplomacy was of the aggressive type, and ills first duty was that
of making the protecting pinions of
llie spread eagle stretch wide enough
to reach every one of those entitled to
its guardianship.
Saxon and Hodman had the night before entered the frowning walls of the
Palace ibrough a narrow door at the
side. The American minister now
passed hastily between files of presented arms, inside, he learned that bis
excellency, el Presidenle, had not yet
finished his breakfast, but earnestly
desired Ids excellency, el mlnlstro, to
share with him an alligator pear and
cup of coffee.
In the suave presence of the dictator, the minister's choler did not cease.
Rather, it smoldered while he listened
perfunctorily to flattering banalities.
He had struck through intermediary
stages; had passed over the heads of
departments and holders of portfolios,
to issue his ultimatum to the chief
executive. Yet, in approaching his
subject, be matched the other's suavity
With a pleasantness that the dictator
distrusted. The dark face of the autocrat became grave until, when Mr,
Pendleton reached the Issue, it was
deeply sympathetic, surprised and attentive.
"I am Informed lhat some one~*l
eau not yet suy who—wearing your
excellency's uniform, seized an American citizen of prominence on the
slreels of Puerto Frio last evening."
Tlie President was shocked and Incredulous.
"impossible!" he exclaimed with deep
distress;   then,   again:     "Imposiiible! '
From the diplomat's eloquent sketching of the situation, it might have been
gathered lhat the United States war
department stood anxiously watching
f.u- such affronts, ami that the United
Stales war department would be very
petulant when notification of the incident reached it. Mr. Pendleton further
assured his excellency, el presidente,
thai it WOUld be liis Immediate cure to
see that such notification had the right
of way over tlie Panama cable.
"I havo Information." began the dictator slowly, "lhat two men suspected
of connection with an insurgent junta
have lieen arrested. As to Ihelr natlor-
ulity. I hnve received no details. Cer-
talnly, no American citizen has been
seized witli my consent. The affair
appears grave, and shall be investigated. Your excellency realizes the nc_es-
slty of vigilance. The revolutionist
forfeits Ills nationality/' He spread
Ihls bands In a vague neslttre.
"Mr. Robert Saxon," retorted (he
minister, "should hardly lie a suspect.
The fad thai he was not a guest at
my legation, und for the time a member of my family, was due only to tin;
accident of my absence from the city
ou his arrival yesterday."
with sudden bustle, the machinery
lof tlo- Palace was set in motion. Of
a surely, some one had blundered, and
"some one" should be condlgnly punished!
It wns a very irate gentleman, flushed from unwonted exertion in the
tropics, who was ushered at lust Into
Saxon's room, li was a very much
puzzled ami Interested gentleman who
st i   contemplatively   studying   the
direct eyes of the prisoner a halt-hour
later.
Saxon had told Mr. Pendleton the
entire narrative of bis quest of himself, and, ns he told It, the older mnn
listened Without a question or interruption, Standing with bis eyes fixed
on the leller. twisting an unllgbted
cigar In his lingers.
"Mr, Saxon. I am here to safeguard
lh*' Interests of Americans. Our government does not, however, undertake
lo Chaperon filibustering expeditions.
Ii becomes necessary lo question you."
There followed  u  brief catechism In
Which III*' replies seemed to satisfy tlie
questioner.   When he enme to the in
cldenl   of his  meeting  with   Rodman,
Snxon  paused.
"As to Rodman," he said, "who was
arrested with me. I have no knowledge
lhat WOUld bo evidence.   1 know noth
int: excepl from the hearsay of his re
dial."
Mr. Pendleton raised ids hand.
"I am only i|ueniionlng you as to
yourself. This olher mnn, Rodmnn,
will have to prove bis Innocence. I'm
afraid 1 can'! help him.    According to
Ihelr own admissions, they know nothing against you beyond the fact that
you were seen with him last night."
Saxon came to his feet, bewildered.
"Hut the previous matter—the embezzlement?" he demanded. "Of course,
I had nothing to do with this affair.
It wns that other for whieh I was
arrested."
The envoy laughed.
"Vou punched cows six years ago.
You cartooned live years ago, and you
have painted landscapes ever since. 1
presume, if it became necessary, you
could prove an alibi for almost seven
years?"
Saxon nodded. Ho fancied he saw
Ihe drift of ihe argument, H was to
culminate in the same counsel lhal
Steele had given. Ho would be advised lo allow the lime to reach the period
when his other self should lie legally
dead.
Mr. Pendleton paced the lloor for
a space, then came hack and halted
before the cot, on the edge of which
the prisoner sat.
"1 have been at this post only two
years, but 1 am, of course, familiar
with the facts of thai case." He paused, then added with irrelevance: "It
may be that you bear a somewhat
striking resemblance to tills particularly disreputable conspirator,   of course,
that's possible,  but—"
"But highly improbable." admitted
Saxon.
"Oh. you are nol that man! That
can be mathematically demonstrated,"
assert ed Mr. Pendleton suddenly. "I
was only reflecting on the fallibility of
circumstantial evidence, l am a lawyer,
and once, as district attorney, I convicted a man on such evidence. He's
iu the penitentiary now, and it sel me
wondering if   "
But Saxon stood dumfoumled, vainly
trying to speak. Ills fnce wus white,
ami he had seized the envoy by the
arm wilh a grip loo emphatic for diplomatic etiquette.
"Do you know what you are saying?"
he shouted. "1 am not tlie man! How
do you know that?"
"I know it," responded Mr. Pendleton
Calmly, "because tlie incident of the
firing-squad occurred five years ago—
and Hie embezzlement only four years
back."
Saxon remained staring in wide-
eyed amazement. He felt his knees
grow suddenly weak, and the blood
cascaded through the arteries of his
temples. Then he turned, and, dropping again lo tbe edge of the cot, covered his face with his hands.
"You see," explained Mr. Pendleton,
"there is only one ground upon which
any charge against you can be reinstated- an impeachment of your
evidence as to how you have put In the
past five years. And." he smilingly
summarized, "since the ease comes before this court solely on your self-
accusation, since you have journeyed
some thousands of miles merely to
prosecute yourself, I regard your evidence on that point as conclusive."
Hater, the envoy, with his nrm
through that of llie liberated prisoner,
walked out past deferential sentries
into tbe Plaza,
"And, now, tbe blockade being run."
he amiably inquired, "whut are your
plans?"
"Plans!" exclaimed Snxon scornfully; "plans, sir. Is plural. 1 have only
one: lo catcli the next boat that's
headed norlh. Why," he explained,
"there is soon going to be an autumn
In tiie Kentucky hills with all the
woods a blaze ut color."
The minister's eyes took on a touch
of nostalgia.
"I guess there's nothing much the
matter wilh the autumn in Indiana,
either," he afllrmed.
! Tliey walked on together at a slow
gait, for the morning sun was already
[beginning fo bent down as if It were
! focused  through  a  burning-glass.
"And sny," suggested Mr. Pendleton
j at Inst. "If you ever get to a certain
lown In Indiana called Vevny, which Is
! on some of the more complete mnps,
| walk around for me and look at the
J Davis building. You won't see much—
i only a hideous two-story brick, with a
I metal roof and dusty windows, but my
shingle used to hang out ibere—and
H's in God's country!"
Hefore tliey had reached the legation,
Saxon remembered thnt his plans Involved another detail, and with some
secrecy he sought llie cable office, and
wrote a message to Duskn. Its composition consumed n half-hour, yet he
fell it was not quite the masterpiece
llie occasion demanded.   It rend:
"Arrived yoslerduy. Slept in jail.
oui today,   Am not he."
The operator( counting off the length
with his pencil, glanced up thoughtfully.
"li costs a dollar a word, sir." be
vouchsafed.
nut Saxon nodded affluently, for he
knew that the City of Rio sailed north
that afternoon, and he did not know
lhal her sister ship, the Amazon, with
Duska on board, was at (his moment
nosing its way south through the tepid
water   only twenty-four hours away.
As the City of Rio Wound up
inr    rusly    anchor    thnt    afternoon,
Saxon was Jubilantly smoking his pipe
by Ihe rail.
In lhe launch just putting off from
tlie steamer's side stood tlie Hon. Mr.
Pendleton, waving his hat, and Jimmy
Partridge wildly shouting, "Give my
regards to Hroadway!" The minister's
flag, whicli had floated over tlie steamer while tlio great personage was on
board, wns just dipping, and Saxon's
hand was still cramped under the
homesick pressure of the farewell
grlpB.
Suddenly, iho traveller hnd a feeling
of ti presence at his elbow, and, turning, was profoundly astonished to behold again the complacent visage of
Mr. Rodmnn.
"Vou see, 1 still nppenr to be among
those present," announced the filibuster, with some breeztness of manner.
"H's Irue thnt I stand before you, 'my
sweet   young face  still   haggard   with
the anguish it has worn,' but I'm
here, which is, after all, the salient
feature of the situation. Say, what did
you do to them?"
"I?" (jueslioned Saxon. "1 did nothing. The minister came and took me
nut of their Hastlle."
"Well, say, he must have thrown an
awful scare Into them." Mr. Rodman
thoughtfully stroked his chin with a
thin forefinger. "He must have intimidated them unmercifully and brutally. They stampeded into my wing
of the Palace, and set me free as
though they were afraid I had tho
yellow-fever. 'Wide they flung the
massive portals'—nil that sort of thing.
Now, what puzzles me is, why did they
do it? They had the goods on me—
almost, However, I'm entirely pleased.'' Rodman inughed as he lighted a
cigar, and waved his hand with mock
sentiment toward the shore. "And 1
had put the rifles Ibrough, too," lie
declared, jubilantly. "I'd turned them
over lo Hie Insurreoto gentleman in
good order. Did they clamor for your
blood about  the  $1.00,000?"
"Rodmnn," said Saxon slowly, "I
hardly expect you to believe it, but
lhal was a ease of mistaken Identity.
I'm not the man yon think. I was
never hi  Puerto Frio before."
Rodman let the cigar drop from his
astonished lips, anil caught wildly
after It us it fell overboard.
"What '.'■' he demanded, at last,
"How's that?"
"ll was a man who looked like me,"
elucidated Saxon.
"YOU are damned right he looked
like you!" Rodman balled, amazed
into silence. Al Inst, ho said: "Well,
you have got the clear nerve! What's
the   Idea,   anyhow.     Don't   you   trust
llie?"
The artist  laughed.
"1 hardly thought you would credit
ll," he said. "After all, ihat doesn't
make much difference. The point is,
my dear boy, I know 11."
Put Rodman's debonair smile soon
rotumed. lie held up bis hand with
a gesture of acceptance.
"Whftt difference does it make? A
gentleman likes to change hts linen--
why nol his personality? 1 dare say
H's a very decent impulse."
For a mom nt, Saxon looked up witli
an instinctive resentment for the
politely phrased skepticism of the
otber. Then, Ins displeasure changed
to a smile. He had, for it moment,
felt lhe same doubt When Mr. Pendleton brought his verdict. Rodman had
none of the facts, and a glance at the
satirical features showed that it would
be impossible for this unimaginative
adventurer to construe premises to a
seemingly impossible conclusion. He
was a materialist, and dealt in palpable appearances. Afler all, what did
ii matter? He had made his effort,
ami would, us be had promised Duska.
vex his Sphinx with no more questioning. He would go on as Robert Saxon,
feeling that he had done his best wilh
conscientious thoroughness. R was,
after all only cutting the Gordian knot
in bis life. After a moment, he looked
up.
"Which wny do you go?" he Inquired.
Tbo other mini -dinih*•.*-• I lliu sihoul-
ders.
"I go back to Puerto Frio- after the
blow-off."
"After the blow-off?" Saxon repeated, in interrogation.
"Sure!" Rodmnn stretched his thin
hand shoreward, and dropped his
voice. "Take a good look at yon fair
city," he laughed, "for, before you hap
pen back here again, it may bave
■fallen under fire and sword."
The soldier of fortune spoke witb
some of the pride that comes to the
mnn who feels he is playing a large
gnme, whether It be a game of construction or destruction, or whether,
as Is oftener the ease, it be both destruction and construction.
The painter obediently looked back
at the adobe walls and cross-tipped
towers.
"Puerto Frio has been very good to
me," he said, in an enigmatical voice.
Uul Rodman was thinking too much
of bis own plans lo notice the com
ment.
"Do  you  see   the   mountain   at   the
back  of  the  city?"   he  suddenly  de
manded.    "That's  San  Francisco.    Do
you see anything queer about it?"
The artist looked at the peak rearing Its summit against the hot blue
overhead, and saw only a sleeping
tropical background for the indolent
tropical panorama stretching at It
base.
"Well —" Hodman dropped liis vide
yet lower—"if you had a pair of Held
glasses and studied tbe heights, you
could see a few black specks that are
now disused guns. Ry day after tomorrow, or, at thc latest, one day
more, each of those specks will bo a
crater, and lhe lown will be under a
shower of solid shot. There's some
class to work that can turn as mild a
mannered hill as tbnt Into a volcan,
—no?"
Saxon stood gazing with fascination
"Meanwhile," ho beard lhe other
comment, "shipboard is good enough
for yours truly- -because, as you know
shipboard Is neutral ground for political offenders—nnd the next gentle,
man who occupies lite Palace will be
a friend who owes mt* something."
CHAPTER XI.
Saxon denied himself lhe lure of the
deck lhat evening. Though he would
probably be close behind his messages
iu arriving, he was devoting himself
to a ful! nnrrntlon embodied in a love-
letter.
He bent over tho tnsk In the closeness of the dining saloon, wtth such
absorption lhal he did not rise to Investigate even when, wllh a protracted shrieking of whlslles, tliere came
SUdden cessation from thc jarring
throb of screw-shuft nnd engines.
Then, tho City of Rio came to a full
stop. He vnguely presumed that another Imporlnnt port had been reached, and did not siiHpoct that the vessel lay nut of sight of hind, nnd thnt
a second stenmcr, southbound, hnd
halted on signal, and lay likewise motionless, her lights glittering Just off
tho starboard bow.
When, almost two hours later, he
hnd folded the Inst of many pages, nnd
gone on deck for a breath before turning In, the engines were once more
noisily   throbbing,   and   he   sow   only
the bulk and lights of another vessel
pointed down-world under steqm.
But, as usual, Rodman, gentleman of
multifarious devices, was not letting
facts escape him. Indeed, It was at!
Rodman's instance that two mail
ships, the Cily of Rio and the Amazon,
had marked time for an hour and a
half. In the brewing of affairs, Rodman was just now an Important personage, nnd the commanders of these
lines were under instructions from
their offices to regard his requests as
orders, and to obey them with due respect and profound secrecy. The
shifting of administrations at Puerto
FrJo meant certain advantages in tho |
way of concessions to ggntlemen in
Wall Street whose* word, with these
steamers, was something moro than
influential.
Mr. Rodman had been rowed across
from the Rio to the Amazon, and he
had taken with blm the hand-lugguge
that made his only Impedimenta. Inl
Mr. Rodman's business, it was Import-1
ant to travel light. If he found Senor1
Mlraflorcs nmong the passengers of
the Amazon, 11 was his intention to
right-about-face, and return south
again.
Senor Mirnflores had been iu the
States as lhe secret and efficient head
of thai junta which Hodman served.

piiu-. of rifles and many sub-rosa details thai must be handled beyond the

or consent of armed aud In trenched
Incumbents, The home-coming of
Senor Mlratlores must of necessity lie,
unostentatious, since ids arrival would
lie ihe signal for the conversion of the
quiet steeps of San Francisco Into
craters.
Rodman knew thai, if the senor were
on board the Amazon, his name would
nol be on the sailing-list, and his august personality would be cloaked lu
disguise. His point of debarkation
WOUld lie Home secluded coast village
where fellow conspirators could hide
him. Ills advent into the capital Itself would not be made at all unless
made al the head of an Invading army,
and, If so made, be would remain us
minister of foreign affairs In lhe
cabinet of General Vegas, fo whom
jusi now, as lo himself, Hie city gates
wero closed.
Rut Senor Mlratlores bad selected
a more cautious means of entry than
the ship, which might bear travellers
wbo knew him. Hodman spent an
hour on the downward steamer. He
managed to see tlie face of every passenger, and even investigated the
swarthy visages in Hie steerage. He
asked of some tourists casual questions as to destination, and chatted
artlessly, then went over the side
again, and was rowed back across the
Intervening strip of sea. Immediately
upon his departure overside, the Amazon proceeded on her course, and five
minutes Inter the City of Rio was also
under way.
The next morning, after a late
breakfast, Saxon was lounging at the
mil amidship. He had ceased looking
backward, and all liis gaze was for the
front. Ah-md of him. tho white superstructure, the white-duck uniform of
the officer pacing the bridge, the
whiteness of the holystoned deck, all
stood boldly out against the deep cobalt of the gently swelling sea. Snxon
was satisfied with life, and, when he
snw Hodman sauntering toward him.
he looked up with a welcoming nod.
'"Hello, Carter—1 menn Saxon." The
gun-smuggler corrected his form of
address with a laugh.
The breezy American was a changed
and Improved man. Thc wrinkled
gray flannels had given way to natty
while duck. His Panama hat was new
and of such quality that it could be
rolled and drawn through a ring as
large as a half-dollar. He was shaven
to an extreme plnkuess of face. As
Saxon glanced up. his eyes wearing
tell-tale recognition of Ihe transformation, the thin man laughed afresh.
"Notice Hie difference, don't you?"
he genially inquired, rolling a cigarette. "The gray grub Is splendidly
Changed Into the snow-white butterfly.
I'm a very flossy bug, eh. Saxon?"
The painter admitted the soft self-
Impeachment  wltb a qualification.
"I begin to think you arc n very
destructive one."
"I am." announced Rodman, calmly.
"I could spin you many a yarn of Intrigue, bul for the fact that, since you
began wearing a * halo instead of n
hat. you huve become too snncitfled
to listen." ,
"Innsmuch." smilingly suggested tlie
painter, "as we mlgbl yet be languishing In tlie cunrtel except for tlie fact
Ibat 1 was able fo give so good an
account of myself, I don't see that you
have any reasonable quarrel with my
halo."
Rodmnn raised his brows.
"Ob, 1 never hist sight of tho fuel
that you had some reason for the saint
role, und, as you sny, 1 wns In on the
good results. Hut, now that you are
flitting northward, what's Ihe Idea of
keeping your ears stopped'."'
"They are open." declared Mr. Saxon
graciously; "you are at liberty to tell
me anything you like, but only what
you like. I'm nol thirsting for criminal confessions."
"That's all right, but you " Rodman
broke off, und bis lips twisted Into
ironical good humor—"no, I apologize
—1 menu, a fellow who looked remnrk-
ubly like yon used lo be so deeply
versed In Inlernatlonnl politics thut 1
think this new adventure would appeal lo you. Ever remember hearing
of one Senor Mlratlores?"
Snxon shook his bead, whereupon
Rodmnn Inughed with gronl sophistication. Carter had known Senor Mirnflores quite well, and Rodman knew
that Carter hud known him.
"Very consistent acting," he approved. "You're a good comedian. In tho
Chinese theatres, they put Hour on tho
eomodlnn's nose to show Hint bo's not
a tragedian, but you don't need tho
badge. You're all right. You know
how to get a laugh. Hut this Isn't
dramatic criticism. It's wurs nnd
rumors of wars."
The adventurer drew a long puff
from his cigarette, Inhaled It deeply
and stood idly watching thc curls of
outward-blown smoke hanging In tho
hot air. before he went on.
"Well, Mlratlores hns once more been
nt thc helm.   Of course, In the lower
commissions of thc insurrecto erganl-
zation we have thu usual assortment of
foreign ofllcers, odds and ends, but the
chief difference between this enterprise and fhe other one—the one Carter knew about—Is the fact that we
have some artillery, and that, when we
start things going, we can come pretty
near battering down the old town."
Hodman proceeded to sketch the outlines of Hie conspiracy. It was much
the stereotyped arrangement with a
few variations. Two regiments in the
city barracks, suspected of disloyalty,
had been practically disarmed by the
President, but these troops had been
secretly re-nrmed with a part of the
guns brought in by Rodman, and would
be ready to rise at the signal, together
Willi several other disaffected commands—not for the* government, but
against it.
Tho mountain of San Francisco is
really not a mountain at all, but a foot
hill of fhe mountains. Yet, lt looks
down on the city of Puerto Frio as
Marathon on" the sen, and here are
guns trained inward as well as outward. These guns can shell the capital Into ruins In the space of a few
hours; then, they can hurl their projectiles further, and play havoc with
Ihe environs. Also, Ihey can guard
the city from the approach that lies
along lhe roads from the Interior. A
mmandor who holds Ban Francisco
amis at lhe door of Puerto Frio wllh
latch-key In Ids hand. The revolutionists    under    Vegas    bad    arranged
their attack on the basis of unwarned
assault. The Dictator bad Indeed sollie
apprehensions, but Ihey were fears for
the   fm ure   not   for   the   immediate
present. The hoops gnrrlMoned on San
Francisco, ostensibly the loyal legion
f Ihe Dictator's forces, were In reality
watching the outward approaches only
is doors through which they were to
welcome friends. The guns lhat were
trained and ready lo belch fire on signal from Vegan, wen? the guns trained
Inward on the city, and, wheu Ihey
pencil, the main plaza Would resemble
nothlng so milch as the far end of a
bowling alley when an expert stands
ou the foul-line, and Ihe palace of the
President would be the king-pin for
tbelr gunnery. The insurrecto forces
were to enter San Francisco without
resistance, and Die opening of its crater
was to be lhe signal for hurling
through the streets of the city itself
those troops tbat had been secretly
armed wllh the smuggled weapons,
completing the confusion ami throwing
into stampeding panic the demoralised
remnants upon which tbe government
depended.
Unless there were a traitor in ver>
exclusive und carefully guarded coun-
ils, there would hardly be a mis-
arrlage of the plans.
Saxon stood Idly listening to these
confidences. Nothing seemed strange
to him. and least of all the entire willingness of the conspirator to tell him
things that involved life and deatli for
men nnd governments. He knew thnt.
In spite of nil he had said, or could
sny, to the other man, be wns the former ally in crime. He had thought
nt flrsl that Rodman would ultimately
discover some discrrpaney in appear-
■e which would undeceive him. but
now he realized that the secret of the
continued mistake was an almost miraculous resemblance, and the fact thnt
the olher man had. In the former
affair, met him in person only twice,
and that five years ago.
"And so," went on Rodman in conclusion, "I'm here adrift, waiting for
the last act. I thought Mlraflores
might possibly be on the Amazon last
night, and so, while you sat dawdling
over letter-paper nnd pen, little Howard Stanley was up and doing. I went
across to the other boat, and made
search, but it was another case of
nothing transpiring. Mirnflores was
too foxy to go touring so openly."
Saxon felt that some comment was
expected from him, yet his mind was
wandering far afield from the doings
of juntas. All these seemed am unreal
as scenes from an extravagantly staged musical comedy. What appeared to
hhn most real nt that moment was the
picture of u slim girl walking, dryad-
llke, through the hills of her Kentucky homeland, and fhe thought that
he would soon be walking with her
"It looks gloomy for the city." ho
said, abstractedly.
"Say." went on Rodman, "do you
know lhat lhe only people on that boat
booked for Puerto Frio were three fool
American tourists, and that, of the
three, two were women? Now. what
chance have those folks got to enjoy
themselves? Do you think Puerto
l-'rlo, say day afler tomorrow, will
make a hit with them?" The Informant laughed softly to himself, but Saxon was still deep fn his own thoughts.
It suddenly struck him witli surprised
discovery llmt the view from the deck
was beautiful. And Rodman, also, fell
lhe languid Invitation of the sea air,
and it made him wish to talk. So. unmindful of a self-absorbed listener he
went on garrulously.
"You know, 1 felt like quoting to
Ihem, 'lnio lhe Jaws of death, Into the
mouth of bell, sailed lhe three lOUHstS,'
but that would have been lo tip off
State secrets. If people Will fare forth
for adventure, I guess they've got to
have It."
"Do you suppose," asked Saxon perfunctorily, "they'll be lu actual
danger?"
"Danger!" repeated Hie filibuster
wllh sarcasm. "Danger, did you say?
(Mi, no, of course not. It will be a pink
tea! You know there nre two places
In It where Amcrlcnn visitors enn stop
—tho Frances y Ingles, where you

It's loaded with shell. Oh. no, there
won't be any danger!"
"Wasn't thore some preiexl on which
you could warn them off?" inquired
Ihe painter.
Rodman shook his head.
"You see, I have to be careful In my
talk. I might say loo much. As It
was. I knocked Ihe town to tho fellow
all I eould, Rut he seemed hell-bent
on getting there, and getting there

Mr. Uric Berault, a young gentleman

FEEDING GRAIN  TO  HORSES
If .mc were hi ask what Is Iln* favorite groin far horso-food Ing, there
would bo n unanimous "OntsI" in reply, but, further than lhat, unanimity
Would !"■ a Inst feature, Kvery one
would havo bis way, his tlmo, and his
amount to feed, hardly two uf which
would ngreo, yet nearly all of whieh
would I"- a success In th,* right bauds.
The two greatest controversies that
...in. up in horse-feeding arc the
am..tin's to feed, and whether or not
oats should be chopped. In the lirst
case, the amount fed will depend entirely upon the amount of work done,
but a safe average would be a gallon
of oals three times a day for a 1,200-
pound horse doln;; heavy work, and
from this feed according to amount of
work done and the corresponding
weight of the horse.
Regarding the crushing of oats, this
is entirely optional if the horse's teetli
ure good and he dues not "bolt" his
grain. However, for old horses and
fast feeders, the oats are better crushed. Many crush ull their oats for the
purpose of destroying weed seeds that
may be In the oats. If oats arc crushed, they should be milled in small
quantities that will be eaten within the
week. If chopped outs are left longer
they will becme stale, and tlnally go
musty.
This year, when there is so much
feed wheat in the country, many will
put this into their ration, and rightly
so. However, wheat is one of the
strongest grains, ami must be fed with
caution and close attention to horses.
For this reason, it would be well to
chop it and mix it iu chopped oats in n
ratio of about one to two.
Mares in foal should never be fed
heavily wllh grain, as there is a tendency to constipation that will go
seriously with (lie mare at foaling
lime ami the foal immediately afterwards.    If she   is  stabled,   feed    boiled
feeds quite frequently In place of the
raw grain.

When Your Horse
•Goes Lame
June Haunted Its banners high up
between the gaunt skyscrapers that
morning. Thero Nancy caught sight
of the blue sky, us clear as sea-water,
across which litlle boats of clouds
went racing madly to the country,
bearing fairy picnickers—excursion
boats upside-down, and going so fast
that they tore oft' parts of their own
sails, and left them like breakers for
the next craft to gather up and use
for steam.
Nancy smiled at her tangled notions; and then sighed. It took courage to go into the "New Vienna Cafe"
for breakfast lately. That window was
always the same—except when sour-
looklng strawberries wave placo to
waxy gray raspberries, or lhe rolls
and lhe buns changed sides.
Suddenly a dim masculine flguro,
wearing across lis waist tho startling
legend   "Nice Ham Sandwich, a cents"
appealed ill the g|nSB  beside her nWll,
and a mild deep voice chuckled: "!)'-

f fairyland, too- -John Goodln went
lo Ibe telephone, whistling, to warn

Then be tucked the half-laughing,
half-frightened Nancy under Ids arm.
und tliey went lo the station. She
was very trim in spotless white and a
big straw hat with nodding roses. Her
yes sparkled wllh the mischievous
joy of a truant. They took a train
for the west; for west was the rolling
country, west was dreamland and happiness, and the clouds were going
tliere.
John paid the fare for au hour and
told the smiling conductor to put ihem
off when that ran out. And when he
Kave them Iheir slips. John cried suddenly: "Listen, listen to this, will you?"
He read the name of the village un
hour away:
"Itosedale."
"John Goodln, It Isn't it's loo Rood

■ame quteti afraid of her happiness.
And there was lhe country! fresh and
urecti nud sparkling, with the curling
river   between   Melds   embroidered   In
rn-rows, and boys tlshlng, and ull
tlm  Rood, sweet   odor of Ihe soil.
At Rosedale they descended, with
no  baggago save  smiles.    Nancy  do*
hired lhe town had the distinction,
unlquo In history, of living up to Ms
name. It was sel In a valley that
might well have been a date, and It
was mini wilh roses. They ran over
the whole place, crimson uml white
uml yellow, and even the gray courthouse mitigated the severities of (he
law wllh ihe fragranco and color of
roses.
"Let's go out lu the real country.
We'll let the breeze take us." She
picked a grny-wlggcd dandelion from
Ihe courtyard and, blowing the feathery plumes Into tlie ulr, hummed:
"Tho wind blew east, the wind blew
west,
Tlie   wind   blew   over   thc   cuckoo's

"Como on, John Goodln. let's tlnd lhe
cuckoo's nest."
So they wonl south with a wilding
breeze, full of June odors uud warmth,
drowsy nnd delicious.
The road danced up and down, between    meadows   and    woodland   nnd
corn-field.    A mnn on a wagon cried
Howdy,   strangers,"   nnd   thoy   cried
Howdy" back, glad to bo where folks
spoko instead of pushing you off the

of white wool blowing and rolling
across a green  hill.
"Oh, look, look, this year's lambs!
On their stilts yet. Watch 'em bounce,
stiff-legged and woodeny like toy
lambs from a big Noah's Ark—I want

Sho was over the rail fence like a
boy, and across the new green pled
with buttercups. The lambs bounced
away on springs, "baa-bau-ing" plaintively. Her hat fell off, making a
cream-and-white Ilower against the

Everything seemed asleep in the soft
sunlight, asleep as if waiting for someone to come and wake it into a swift
ami peaceful busy-ness. Morning-
glories hung blue and while vases on
the fences, nnd roses lurked everywhere; a snowball bush had burst
like a white rocket, above flags and
peonies llirlinjj; along the walk.
Beyond the barns were rows of ripe
raspberries. and white-blossomed
blackberries, a great strawberry patch,
and an orchard, and n vineyard.
"A fruit-farm." cried Nancy. "Doesn't   lhat  sound   pretty—-a  fruit-farm?"
"Yes, looks as if somebody might be
riijht happy round here, ami make a
little money,  too."
Nancy sighed. They entered the
house through a broken window,
laughing at the Idea of ghosts. "They'd be nice, friendly ones who'd only ask
the lime of day." Hut she jumped when
a cluster of roses fell suddenly through
an opened shutter and showered petals
In her hair.
They found one big white room, with
wire screens on half ihe windows, of
which they couldn't guess lhe use. He
called her to look at a row of pencil
marks on the door-posl, each marked
with a name. Tliere wns "Alexander,
idghl years old." ind "Margaret, aged
ten."
"The children's meosurlng place."
Nancy whispered. "'This was Hie nursery."
Tliey closed lhe door Softly, ns if
on a sacred place, aud stole out to sll
silent a long lime in the sunshine.
When the shadows were growing old
and they bad pruned some of the
bushes, playing like children, sho filled
her hair with roses, and her arms witli
roMes, and, waving a farewell kiss at
the old house, followed him down the
road. Her hair was blowing round her
cheeks (hat bloomed with roses, too.
He laughed at the little thunderclouds of .lust that rose when their
feet went plop! in the rond; nnd she
vowed the elder blossoms were fairies'
luce hung on Hie hedge to dry.
"Oh, I don't want to go back- I
don't want to go back! Everything's
always different out here. And I have
been so happy today."
When they loitered in the shady
court -houso grove again, she must
needs play out the game of the afternoon. "I'm going to find out what
that lovely place is worth somebody
might leave nie n fortune some dny,
und 1 could live there nlwnys,"
A polite old negro guided them to
Ihe recorder's office. She nsked the
urny clerk: "Ho you know who owns

house, about three miles out? Ami
What   do tliey   waul   for It?"
The clerk polished his kIushcs. "I

"No, no Miss! Oh. I'm so sorry'

Thc clerk nodded, "Yep. 'Twns a

A blush like lhe roses covered her

"Nancy    I    forgive me!"
"Ho yon mean that our Kolng west

He bent over and took her hands.

BLISTERS
Misters are irritant applications,
used for tlie purpose of creating what
is known as "counter-Irritation." They
cause a superficial Irritation, lho results of which may have an effect upon
organs moro or loss deep-seated, or
they may be applied for the purpose of
stimulating the actions of the absorbents, and thus lend to reduco enlargements of different kinds. In the.
early ages It was thought that two Inflammations could md exist at tho
same time; hence, in case of inflammation of au Internal organ, for Instance,
in flam ma I ion     of     lhe     lungs,   it     was
olalmod that If Inflammation of tho
Sklu covoring tin* lung cavity wero
created, the internal Inflammation

ne "counter-irrilailon."
'oiiiiier-irritallon Is practiced at
present wllh the Idea of producing lhe
sume rosults, but the theory of action
Is different. The blood vessels of inflamed areas are always congested;
hence, if artificial inflammation he set
Up, lhe blood vessels of the skill become engorged, and this has a tendency
to reduce ihe engorgement of tho vessels, and hence reduce Inflammatory
action <if deep-seated organs In the
same region. The effects of a blister
probably depend nn much upon its application as upon the ingredients it
contains. If simply applied to a surface, the effects are slight, but If applied with smart friction- well rubbed

may be In the form of a paste or liquid.
The active principle of the ordinary
paste blister is either blniodidc of mercury or canthnrldes. Many practitioners prefer a combination of the two.
When either Is used. It Is mixed with
lard, lanolin or vaseline, and the
strength of the mixture will depend
greatly upon the action desired, being
one part of the drug to four, six or
eight of the lutter. Where well marked counter-Irritation or blistering is
desired, the following kIvcs good results:
Blnlodlde of mercury, 2 drums.

This, of course, is one to four, and
it may be made stronger or weaker, if

sufficiently bard to scarify thc skin of
Lhe blistered parts. The blister should
be applied a little at a time, with smart
friction, then a little more, etc., until
la to _U minuies hnve been spent In the
application. In about twenty-four
hours a little more blister is rubbed
well in. and In about twenty-four hours
Ipnger sweet oil or some other non-
irritant lubricant should be applied.
The patient's head should now be let
down, and if be can be provided wllh
a box stall, It Is advisable. The blistered parts should be idled every day
until the scale raises off, which Is generally In ten days to two weeks, when,
if necessary, another blister can be
applied, as at tlrst. and. where further
blistering is desired, it should be done
once in every four weeks. While blistering in this manner causes the hair to
full out. It does not destroy the hair
follcles, provided reasonable attention
to directions is observed: hence, there
Is no dntiKcr of causing an urea permanently devoid of hair.
AVERAGE AND POSSIBLE PRODUCTION
Kvery business uian, if he has any in
terest in his vocation, desires to have it
known as the greatest business of its
kind in the couutry. Manufacturing
plants are rated according to the size
of their output, uud their managers nre
never content until this hits reached Its
fullest capacity. Likewise, uo agriculturist should he -ati-tied until every
available foot of soil on his furm is
doing its utmost toward Increasing tho
product ion of Hint furm. Keeping down
product ion may raise prices, but the
man who has the lowest production suffers most, I iittse there    ure    always

menu/ At nn average of 1 <».14 bushels,
a largo percentage of growers must be
producing far less than the average,
for we know Hint muny are producing
fur more. Wherein does the profit lie
for those?   And whut is to hinder them
from economically Increasing returns
by following approved methods! Wheat

fertilizer of nny kind, cannot but do-
It-Mo tho soil nnd rnuse light crops,
which bring down tho average. The
grower of the henvy crop benefits nt the
expense of the producer of those poor
crops; then, why not grow on each acre
sown tho heaviest crop that the soil will
possibly produce? Canada's wheat in
llilu was worth 1(1118,973,000, al L6.1.

the same rato per bushel, it would have

$100,885,730 annually in this crop uloue.
tf tho price had been slightly less, the
bulk of the growers would still have

Oats, perhaps the most widely grown
.crop in Canada, shows equally striking
results. Tho average yield in 1910 of
:i_.7!> bushels per acre, is not in comparison with tho possibilities of our soil.
Sixty bushels is quite a common yield,
and often 75 and 100 bushels per acre
ure harvested.
Barley, with a. yield of 24.02 bushels
per acre, is, like the two former, not
giving the highest possible returns,
l*'orly bushels of this crop is a very
common yield, and 111) is often obtained,
What must, bo the yield of the poorest

THE HORSE ON GRASS
Science has taught and is intended
to teach, in su fur us it concerns live
slock that nature's wny is best, and
whilst it has been said that man hus
improved on nature the truth of the
matter is that his Improvement consisted only iu the discover}' of a differ-
not application of natural resources
which gave better results.
Vou have noticed when driving your
team down the lane to the -seeding, that
their heads go down to the Ilrst bit of
green grass in their way, no matter
how much hay ami grain they may have
just eaten iu thc stable. It means that
the season for feeding liny and other
cured grasses is almost finished, ami the
best hay ou earth cannot take the p)aco
of the meanest  patch of grass.
Of course, (here is always a little risk
of cold or chill in turning out horses to
grass, but as a general rule no other
animal suffers ill effects so little from
being turned out to gruss in any kind of
weather as the horse. Provided n little
euro is taken for a day or two until the
gruss has passed through the system,
there is no danger or fear of uuy harm.
It is probable that many farmers will
be obliged to turn out their horses early
on account of shortness of feed, and
provided they receive a liberal supply
of grains, will tuke no barm. Sunday is
always a goml day to (urn (hem out for
the first time, as it is a lion working
dny. They are then turned out cool aud
rested, uud they settle 'lawn to cut
after giving vent tn tlieir feeling. In
the evening they can be brought up for
(he nighl. uml then on work days they
can be turned out for u few hours each
evening for a few days. One may take
advantage of the first really . warm
night to leave them out altogether, nml
they will take no further Iin mi. even
f the weather should turn a bit rough
»r cold.
.Mares with foals should of course be
let out on grass as soon as this can bo
done with safety. The chief danger is
with young foals lying on the ground
too long, or after a long rain, ns thus
they are apt to get chills and scour,

During ih*' past few years several
agricultural societies In Manitoba havo
been conducting Good Farming Competitions wiih very marked beneficial
results, in connection with tho (ln.nl
Farming Competitions a smaller number of these societies have held competitions in standing crops, Both
forms of competitions have done much
toward the Improvement of both agricultural methods in the Held ami general bum.' surroundings.
Tin- honorable minister of agriculture, Mr. Geo. Lawrence, has authorized lb*- extension section of tho agricultural colleges to hold theso competitions ihi*-; year under tho auspices
of all agricultural societies wishing to
undertake such work. The Provincial
Depnrtmenl of Agriculture will pay us

With the Horses
HITCHING HORSES TANDEM
Otll west, where horses did some
very long hauling, for a saving In
wages, as many as sixteen or eighteen
wore sometimes hitched into one team,
nil under the cure of one teamster and
one roustabout. Putting thom abreast
wns, of course. OUt of the question, SO
thoy were stretched out one span ln
from of the other. l-'or a team like
this, then- would usually be four
wagons, hitched one behind the other
by n "bull" or short tongue, the heavier wagonfl. being forward or nearest
tbe team. 'Die horses pulled on what
is culled 8trelchers~-twu wblffletrees
spread apart liy a four-foot stick or a
pieee of small gas-p'pe, and connected
by a piece of chain with a ring In tbe
middle, Into which the draw chain Is
hooked.
As many as six horses, and sometimes eight, can be fairly well managed
by Ibe "ribbons" or "chocks"--I.e., a
lino for each horse, so long as the work
Is on Hie road; but when ll comes to
guiding the lonn teams, or even the
shorter ones. In the fields, n very much
simpler method must be used. This Is
called the "jerk" line, and consists of
a single line stretching ail along the
nigh hames, and snapped to a chin-
strap on the bit of tbe nlis'h leader.
The "off" loader Is guided by a rod or
polo  some  five  foot   long,     from  the

just In front of them, except when on
the road with heavy loads.
H is here that the fancy or scientific work is done, for these long teams
are often hauling loads of a ton to
every horse, over roads that would
make many a venturesome teamster
shiver to travel with a light wagon
and span. The teamster, then, rides
in a light saddle on his nigh-wheeler,
which, with bis mate, and the two
"swingers"—the flrst span ahead, and
fastened to the end of the tongue—he
has to keep more directly in hand.
Next lo the leaders, these four must
be wood horses, for thelr's is all tbe
extra-heavy work on the turns, and
the "swingers," at the order "gee!"
or "haw!" sometimes swing, jump tbe
chain and pull their best almost at

"wheeler" on the opposite side, when

so us to koop the bind wagon out from
a corner. The "wheelers" are held bade
by "slay" chains, so that either one
can help tbe "swing" a groat deal to
counteract the "lu-puli" of all the other
horses.
The training Is not a difficult task,
und any young chap who lias the con-
fldonce of bis horses and a llttlo patience may be sure of success. The

MAKING CELLULOID
Some plastic substances are obtained
by a very simple treatment of paper
pulp. The crudest and least homogeneous is papier mache, made of old
newspapers, shredded, macerated long
in water and agglutinated by a little
Klue. A wrapping paper of characteristic appearance, pale yellow, thin.
tough and glossy, is made from wood
pulp treated with calcium bisulphite
If this bisulphite pulp is worked In tho
mill until Its libers nre completely disintegrated, and the muss is dossloated,
a block of almost pure amorphous cellulose is obtained. This produce,
which can bo worked like celluloid. Is
known us "cell ul Ith."
Woody fiber can also be converted
Into a homogeneous plastic mass by
the addition of a solvent, in vory small
quantity, either to paper or to paper
pulp. The fibers, softened by the solvent, nro then agglomerated by pressure und the mass is transformed into
workable blocks by u long and complex
series of WOShlngS and other treatments. In Ibis way a substance called
"vulcanite" is made in Germany, with
tbo aid of zinc chloride, and "collullne"
has boon obtained, less successfully, in
Prance, with the aid of caustic soda.
In the process of Cross and Bevan
the paper pulp is kneaded for a long
time in caustic soda solution, to which
carbon dlstilphide Is added at a certain
Stage of the process. The product,
known as "viscose," Is a vitreous mass
whieh is soluble in water and which Is
used for making varnishes, artificial
silk and, in sheet form, for various
purposes. Viscose,    though    much
cheaper and less inflammable than celluloid, Is too brittle to form a universal
substitute for thut substance.
Hy kneading cellulose with a mixture
of acetic acid and acetic anhydride, ln
presence of a small quantity of sulphurous acid or other catalyzer, are
produced tie aceto-eelluloses, which
are subsequently freed from excess of
acid and other Impurities by washing
In water or benzine.
Many such products of diverse properties can be obtained by modifying
UlQ process, but until recently Ihe cost
and dirricuity of producing thom prevented serious competition with celluloid.
Bach celluloid factory makes its own
nitrocellulose from thin uud very pure
piiper, or sometimes from raw cotton,
treated with strong nltrosulphurlo acid
nud then washed. The most Important
Improvements have been made in this
ptoeoss of nitration, which Is chemical
and therefore can be rationalized,
whereas the subsequonl operations are
necessarily empirical. In the best
mothod. (be nitration is effected in an
apparatus. In which the operation Is
accelerated by continuous circulation
of thc liquid and tbo latter Is entirely
ro uporatedi to be used uguin afler its
Initial strength has been restored by
adding concentrated sulphuric acid and
nitric acid. The process must ho regulated with great nicety In order to obtain, among tbo many possible nltro-
celluloses, those whlcb are best suited
for lbc manufacture of celluloid.
The washed nitrocellulose Is reduced
to a soft pulp hy long trituration In
machines similar to paper mills. It Is
(hen bleached with purmanganatefl or
hypochlorites, washed thoroughly and
dried hy repeated pressings between
layers of felt In tbe hydraulic press.
in the preparation of celluloid 100
parts by weight of nitrocellulose and
BO parts of alcohol are knoaded with
GO parts of camphor, or wltb about 20
parts  of  camphor   and    40   parts   of
toluene. .Sometimes tbe camphor and
nlrtocellulose are ground together
before the alcohol is added. A llttlo
castor oil is added to the mixture when
a very flexible celluloid is desired.
When the mass has become perfectly
homogeneous it Is rolled Into sheets
Which are superposed and subjected to
the hydraulic pressure at a high temperature. The solid block thus formed Is cut up into sheets or plates which
are again subjected to heat and pressure and for some purposes are polished by pressing tbem between hot plates
of polished metal.
Many objects are made from shoot
celluloid by cutting, sawing, fluting and
other operations with machine tools
similar to those used in working sheet
metal, Whenever It Is possible, however, advantage is taken of tbe plactlc-
lty of hot celluloid, und the material Is
molded, stamped or pressed Into the
desired form. Thus the petals of artificial flowers are stamped from very
thin Sheets, nud the stems, as well ns
other rods and tubes, are formed by
pressing hot celluloid through the circular or annular orifice of a sort of
huge syringe.
Celluloid can be colored uniformly
by adding suitable pigments lo the
mixture. .Marbled celluloid Is obtained
by mixing chips of variously colored
specimens and cementing thom together by heal and pressure.

After Ten Days' Suffering Mr. Quinu

into the flesh.
"Hodman," be said hi a low voice
ibat   was   almosl   0   whisper,   between
ids laborad breathings, "I've got to talk
to you - alono. There's not u minute lo
lose.   Come lo my statoroom,"
CHAPTER XII.
Below, lu Die narrow confines of the
cabin, Saxon paced back nmt forth ox-
Cltedly as ho talked. For live minutes,
be did uot pause, and Ibe otber man,
sitting on ihe camp-stool in a corner
of tbe place, followed him with eyes
much as a lion-tamer, shut in a cage
with bis uncertain charge, keeps his
gaze bent on tbe animal. As ho listened, Rodman's expression ran a gamut
from astonishment, through sympathy,
and Into final distrust. At last, Saxon
ended with:
"And, so, I've got lo get them away
from ibere. I've gol lo get back to
that town, and you musl manage It.
For God's sake, don't delay!" The
painter had not touched on lhe Irrelevant point of his own mystery, or why
the girl had followed him. That would
hnve been u story tbe olher would not
have believed, and there wus no time
for argument and futile personalities.
The slow northward fifteen knots had
all at once become a fevered racing in
the wrong direction, and each throb of
the shafts in .the engine-room seemed
to hurl htm madly through space away
from his goal.
When he halted In his narrative, the
other man looked sternly up, and his
sharp features were decisively set.
"Suppose 1 should get you there," he
began swiftly. "Suppose It were possible to get back in time, what reason
have I to trust you? Suppose I were
willing to trust you absolutely, what
right have 1—a mere agent of a cause
that's bigger than single lives—to send
you back there, where a word from
you would spoil everything? My God,
man, there are thousands of people
there who are risking their lives to
change this government. Hundreds of
(hem must die to do It. For months,
we have worked and planned, covering
nnd secreting every detail of our plot-
ling. We have all taken our lives ln
our hands. Now, a word of warning,
an Indiscreet act. the changing of the
garrison on San Francisco, nnd where
would we be? Every platoon that follows Vegas and Mirnflores marches
straight into a death-trap! The signal
is given, and every man goes to destruction as swift as a bat out of hell.
That's what you are asking me to do
--to play traitor to my cause. And you
calmly tell me I must do It simply be-
«ause you've got friends In town."
The man came to his feet with an
excited gesture of anger.
"You know thnt in this business no
mnn can trust bis twin brother, und
you ask me to trust you to the extent
of laying ln your hnnds everything I've
worked for—the lives of an army!"
His tones rose to a climax of vehemence:    "And that's what you ask!"
"You kno%v you can trust me." began
Saxon, conscious of the feeble nature
of his argument. "You didn't have to
toll me. 1 didn't ask your confidence.
I warned you not to tell me."
"Maybe I was a damned fool, and
maybe you were pretty slick, playing
me along wltb your bait of Indifference." retorted Rodman, hotly. "How
am I to know whom you really mean
lo warn? You Insist lhal 1 shall harbor a childlike faith in you, yet you
won't trust me enough lo null your
damned play-acting. You call on me
lo believe In you, yet you lie lo me,
and cling to your smug all is. You
won't confess wbo you are, though yen
know 1 kuow Ii. No, Mr. Carter, 1
must  decline."
Saxon Stood white and rigid. Every
moment Wasted in argument imperiled
more deeply the girl and tho friends he
must save, for whoso hazarded lives
he was unwittingly responsible. Yet.
he could do nothing except with Rodman's assistance. The only chance lay
In convincing him, and Ibat must be
done at any cost. This wns no time
for select Ing met bo.ls.
"I don'l have lo tell a syllable of
your plans," ho contended, desperately.
"They will go wllh tne without asking lhe reason. I bave only to sec
them. You havo my life In your
hands; you can go wllh me. You can
disarm mo, and keep ine In view every
momenl of the time.   You can kill mo
at tho first false move.   You can "
"Cut out the tommy-rot," Interrupt
rd Rodman, with fierce Iduntness. "
can do better than thai, and you know
11. My word on this ship goes the
same as If 1 wore an admiral. I can
say to tho captain that you assaulted
1 me, nnd ll will be my testimony
against yours. 1 can have you put In
irons, and thrown down in the hold,
nnd, by God, I'm going to do It!" Tbe
mnn moved toward the cabin bell, and
hailed witb bis linger near the button. "Now, damn you! my platform
Is 'Vegas y Liberlad,* and I'm not tbe
sucker I muy have seemed. If this Is
a trick of yours, you aren't going to
have the chance lo turn it."
"Give me a moment," pleaded Saxon.
He realized with desperation that
every word the otber spoke was true,
that he was helpless unless he could
bo convincing.
"Listen, Rodman," be hurried on,
ready to surrender everything else if
ho could carry his own point. "For
God's sake, listen to me! You trusted
me in the Ilrst place. I eould have
loft (be boa( at any point, and wired
back!" He looked Into tho face of
the other man so steadily and with
such hypnotic Intensity thai bis own
eyes were Ihe strongest argument of
truth ho could huve put forward.
"You say I hnve distrusted you, Hint
I hnvo not admitted my Identity as
Carter, I don'l cure u nip for my life.
I'm md fighting for ihul now. I have
no designs on you or your designs.
Lol  me put  a hypothetical question:
Suppose you luul come lo ll polut whore
your past life was noljilng more to you
thuu tbo life of another man a man
you hul oil as your deadliest enemy;
suppose you lived In a world Ibut was
us different from the old one as though
It had never OXlstodi suppose n woman
had guided you Into lhat now world,
would you, or would you nol, turn your
buck oil the old?    Suppose you learned
as suddenly u« i loarnod, from you, on
deck, lhat Dial woman was lu danger,
would you, or would you nol, go (o
her'."'
Men rarely tlnd the most eloquent
or convincing words when thoy stand
ut sudden crises, but usually men's
videos nnd manners al such times can
have a force ,.f convincing veracity
that means more. Possibly, It may
havo been the hypnotic quality of Saxon's eyes, but, whatever It was, Rod-
man found it Impossible to disbelieve
him when lie spoke in this fashion. In
liu- plaza, he bud suddenly turned tlio
scutes und bold power of life and death
over Rodmnn, and his only emotion
hail been Unit of bearl-broken misery,
(.'arter bad been, like Rodman himself,
lhe Intriguer, bul he had always been
trustworthy wilh his friends. He had
been violent, bitter, avenging, but
never mean in small ways. That had
been one of lhe reasons why Rodman,
once convinced that the danger of vengeance was ended, had remained almost passionately anxious to prove to
the olher thai he himself had not been
a traitor, (.'arter bad been tbe Napoleonic adventurer, and Rodman only
the pettier type. For Carter, he held a
sort of hero-worship. Rodman's mettle's were those of chicane, but rightly
or wrongly he believed that he could
r°ad the human document.
If this other man were telling the
truth, and if love of a woman were
his real motive, he could be stung into
fury with a slur. If that were only a
pretext, the olher would not allow
his resentment to Imperil his plans-
he would repress it, or simulate it
awkwardly.
"So," he commented .satirically, "it's
the good-looking young female that's
got you buffaloed, is it? The warrior
has been taken into camp by the
squaw." The lone held deliberate intent to Insult.
Saxon's lips compressed themselves
Into a dangerously straight line, and
his face whitened to the temples. As
he took a step forward, the slighter
man quickly stepped bock, and raised
a hand with a gesture of explanation.
Saxon had evidently told the truth.
The revolutionist had satisfied himself,
ind his somewhat erratic method of
judging results had been to his own
mind convincing. And, at thc same
moment, Saxon halted. He realized
that he stood In a position where questions of life ami death, not his own.
were involved. His anger was driving
him dangerously close lo action that
would send crashing to ruin thc one
chance of winning an effective ally.
He half-turned with something like a
groan.
He was called out of his stupor of
anxiety by thc voice of tho othor. Rodmnn had been thinking fast. He would
take a chance, though not such a great
chance as lt would seem. Indeed, in
effect, he would be taking the other
prisoner. He would In part yield to
the request, but In the method lhal
occurred to him he would have an
ample opportunity of studying tbe
other man under conditions which the
ot her man would not suspect. He
would have Saxon at all times in his
power and under bis observation while
lie sel traps for blm. If his surmise
of sincerity proved false, ho could act
al once us he chose, before Saxon
would have the opportunity to make
a dangerous move. He would seem
lo do a tremendously hazardous thing
lu the name of friendship, bul all tbe
while be would havo the cards stacked.
If al tbe proper momenl be still believed In the other, he would permit
the man. under supervision, to sav
those friends. If nol, Rodman would
sllll bo muster of the situation. Ro
sides, he had been seriously disappoint
ed In not mooting Mirnflores. He bad
fell that there might yet be advantages in coming closer to the thentre
of the drama tban this vessel going
norlh. though he must still remain un
der the protection of a foreign flag.
"So you arc willing to admit that
your proper name Is Mr. Carter?" he
demanded, coolly.

his forty-horsc-powcr cnr. And—In a
tone thnt fairly drips with unctlon—I
will add that Mortimer made thc following mechanical provisions to Insure
tbe proper running of Ibe car—viz., he
shaved   himself  for   the   second   time
that day, anointed bis heud with an
exquisite eau de cologne, delicately
dusted his brick-red features with tal-
um powder, and changed bis necktie
four limes. Thus equipped and accoutred, he climbed Into The Hornet,
kicked at the clutch, and madly chug-
a-ehug-chugged to the house where
Josephine was staying with her aunt.
For though Tbe Hornet bad been his
only love for eighteen months, Miss
Josephine had come between them at
last and had weaned his affections
away.
She came smilingly, trippingly down
the steps of her aunt's house—Miss
Josephine did—while The Hornet
rumbled and buzzed, and Mortimer
tenderly helped her into the car and off
they rode toward the sylvan solitudes.
She was silent because sho was aware
of the Impropriety of distracting the
driver's attention; utul he was silent
because of tiie vasty convolution.*) nf
bis thoughts.
"1 will usk her," be thought at lusl,
drawing an equally vasty breath, "as
soon ns wc come to the cross-roads,"
And whilo they drew near to the spot
—appropriately marked us though with
ii highway -N he frowned like a gonorul on tho point of uttering uu historic
order; but when they cume to tbe fateful plnce his perturbation was such
that Tho Hornet nearly run lnio the
fence   lo sting II, as one might say
ami  by  Ibe time  be  bad regul I  Ibe
middle of Ibe road tho slgn-posl ut the
Corners wus far behind tbem. lie shot
n glance toward the girl by bis side
and saw thai sho wus as cool and as
pensive us a Minerva modeled in snow.
"This," thoughl Mortimer, "Is going
lo In- hard." And, being something of
ii classical scholar, he added, "Eheu!"
nu and ou buzzed The Hornet, Jonl-
ously requiring lbo use of both Mortimer's bunds Iti say nothing of his
eyes uml bis feet*—for the road was
rough wllh ruts, uud, though be had a
very particular messago lo deliver to
Josephine, he did not wish to impart
it while they were catapulting through
the air—like shooting-stars—or crashing into u stone wall (like meteors)
or anything of that tempestuous sort.
"All tho sume." he thought, "1 will usk
lier when we come to lhe bridge." They
reached the bridge, and while they
were rumbling over It Mortimer bit
bis tongue and gently said:
"Miss Josephine—"
Apparently she did not hear him, so
pensive was she.
Miss Josephine—" he said,, in a
louder voice.
But still she pensively gazed at the
great eternal hills.
"Miss Josephine!" ho shouted.
Rut while she was turning her bead
to look at him The Hornet viciously
struck a bunker that nearly sent them
skidding into a grand old oak tree
which flourished by the side of the
road. "This," thought Mortimer—with
both bands on the wheel and both eyes
on the road—"this is like trying to eat
with the hands tied. I would put It off
if she wasn't going home tonight. For
two cents I would stop the car and
ask her, but It looks so crazy."
And no generous soul being there to
offer him the mere pittance which he
mentioned, and having, moreover, a
deep-seated prejudice against a reputation for lunacy, they travelled on,
and The Hornet hummed pleasantly
under its hood and behaved altogether
like a car that was having the time of
its sportive young life.
I'm awfully sorry lhat you're going
away, Miss Josephine," said Mortimer.
Rut he had to speak in a raucous and
unromantlc voice—so that she could
hear him—and while he spoke he had
to watch the road ahead for boulders.
I'm sorry, too," she sold; "I've had
a lovely time."
Refore you leave—" he began, and
then he stopped because a skittish
horse attached to a surrey turned suddenly out from one of the side lanes-
like a new figure In a nightmare—and
reared up and gracefully and com-
mandlngly waved its forelegs at The
Hornet as though inviting Mortimer to
come and join It In thc mazes of a
mad, delirious waltz.
"What were you going lo say, Mr.
Perkins?" asked Miss Josephine, after
the Terpsichorean horse had passed
them, biped and unapprised.
"Oh, yes," said Mortimer--ln a now-
or-never voice—"I was going to say
that hefore you went back home 1 had
a question I wanted—"
They were bowling down a steep
hill leading to a village below, nnd a
giotip of children were also riding
down the hill In home-made coasters
on wheels. The steepness of the hill
and the hazard of the children kept
Mortimer so fully occupied in restraining the homicidal possibilities of The
Hornet that again he was obliged to
leave bis remark unfinished. Rut when
he approached the foot of the hill and
snw a llvery-stnble sign creaking gently In lhe breeze, an inspiration grand
and noble dashed quickly through his
comprehending mind.
"1 know what I'll do," lie smiled to
himself. And when he came to the
livery stable Tbo Hornet crawled along
more and more slowly and then stop-
pod dead In Its Iracks.
"Dear me!" oxclalmod Mortimer, In a
lone which was meant lo Indicate astonishment, "something is wrong!"
He Jumped out, and, lifting lbo hood,
he looked so wise that If he had been
possessed of a board, a shorl nose, and
a different set of features he would
have looked amazingly like Socrates,
"I'm afraid," he said to Josephine—
nnd this time ho wagged his head—
"that we shall have to go home ln a
buggy."
And Just nt that psychological moment (if a moment can ever he called
psychological) a loud voice shouted:
"Hollo, Mortimer! In trouble, old
man?"
Mortimer turned around and gazed
into tho smiling countenance of Willis
Andrews, and the more he gazed the
more be hated him. For Willis wus not
only the most Irrllatlngly handsome
mnn In nil those parts, he was not only
a recognized diagnostician regarding
the complaints of motor-cars, but ho
was also an ardent suitor for the hand
of thc pensive Josephine. Wherefore
Mortimer hated him with a hatred
more bitter than henbane, more enduring than granite nnd steel.
They hnd the carburetor apart in
loss tlmo than It takes to verify tbo
Bpelllng of tlu* word, and Ihon they
started after the spark-plug.
Ah-im!" cried Willis, with an aggravating accent of superior knowledge and beauty, "bore's the trouble!
One of ihe binding-posts is gone!"
"Well, well," muttered Mortimer
(and be didn't look so very mucli like
Socrates   then).     "Well,   well."
What a funny name!" exclaimed
Miss Josephine, looking down from her
place in the car. "What does lt look
like, Mr. Andrews?"
"It's uboul an inch long," he explained, "nnd as big nround as a lead-
penoll," He began looking around in
the dust underneath tbe ear, and he
only gave up the search—and then
with evident rogrcl—when Josephine
took ber place in the buggy which
Mortimer had hurriedly—almost feverishly—hired. 'Tush the car into the
stable!" cried Mortimer to llie breathless liverymen; "pn he back tomorrow,
Get   up,   iJohbin:     Good-by,   Willis!"
The twilight was falling and their
homeward way wus toward tho selling
sua. lu front of thom Dobbin Jogged
peacefully nlu) rhythmically along,
With tho comfortable and reassuring
appearance of a horse who could jog
along peacefully forever. Ho peacefully   ice,.inled   ||i(,   COWS,   (lie   scenery,
the sunset, tin- signs on the trees, ntul
yet he bud (between bis ears) a certain
wlso und knowlodgable look which is
oxtromoly hard to define, ihough it may
bOBt   be   described   us   one   ot   discreet
expectancy,
"Josephine," suid Mortimer, Ills nrm
Stealing behind her—as It couldn't, In
the cut* "I mount to nsk you before,
but I couldn't, in tbo car. How would
you like to be Mrs. Perkins?"
Slowly uml shyly she nestled ugalnst
him—ns she couldn't, In the car, and
when—a few moments later—she gave
him her hand—to squeeze, I think, an
operation quite impossible In the car-
the missing binding-post fell coyly Into
his palm.
"Hello!" cried Mortimer, bending
over and looking at it as though it
fascinated him, "where did this come
from?"
lt might have been tbe sunset, or lt
might have been that she blushed for
herself, or il might have been thnt she
only blushed for him.
"Wben   you   were  leaning over  the
machine and threw this behind you,'
she said, with great severity of man
ner, "you should have looked whore it
went. Mortimer."
"Where did it go?" he humbly nsked.
"It landed ln my lap," she said, more
severely than before, "and thinking
that you didn't want it—in the car—I
hid It in my glove!"
TO    NICKEL    OB    SILVER-PLATE
IRON BY FRICTION
Iron ran be nickeled by tirst producing on it a thin coating of copper by
rubbiug over it a solution of 20 parts
sulphate of copper in 100 parts of water
and 5 parts of sulphuric acid. Then, by
means of a rag, rub over it a solution
of 6 parts nickel, 3 parts tin, and 1 part
iron in 100 parts of hydrochloric acid
and 3 parts of sulphuric acid. If finally
the object is rubbed over with a rag
dipped in tiuely pulverized zinc, nickel
will be deposited on the copper. This
nickel deposit may be thickened by repeating thc two last-named operations.
Silver plating, according to a recent
patent, can be effected by dissolving
freshly precipitated chloride of silver
in a solution of hyposulphite of soda
(1,100 parts to 10,000 parts of water),
adding to this solution 180 parts of
spirits of sal ammoniac and stirring in
800 parts of fine-washed chalk. This
mixture is rubbed until it dries, on the
article to be silvered, whereby a brilliant deposit of pure silver is obtained.
Real silver and gold foils may likewise
be prepared by means of the rubbing
process, and for this purpose tin foil or
opper foil is stuck on to strong paper
and the foil rubbed with a mixture of
silver or gold eyanate and carbonate of
potash. Ry dissolving tbe adhesive,
the powder can be again removed.
uccessl'ul were these efforts thnt the
photographers were encouraged to attempt the making nf n picture of a
shell aa it left the gun. There were
Immense   difficulties   to   be   overcome,
nd many pictures were spoiled before
a method was evolved that brought (tie
desired results. The Ilrst trials were
made on the gun carriage with tho recoil mechanism operating tho camera.
This was found to be unsuccessful because of certain unevenness of work in
thc mechanism necessarily produced In
the recoil. Another difficulty mot was
in thc blast of the discharge. Finally,
after repeated attempts, it was determined to muke the projectile Itself operate tlic camera. Electrical connection was made betwoen tbe camera and
tbo bore of the gun so thai tbe series
of resulting photographs would show
Uie various steps In tho discharge from
the time the charge of powder exploded until the projectile Is clear of
the gun nnd well on Its wuy lo iis
mnrk. The work was done in Uio artillery course of lbo School of Enlisted
Specialists under lhe direction or Captain Francis J. Relit*. The apparatus
for exposing the negative was placed
on Uio sighting platform ami lbo camera began the molting <d' negatives the
Instant tho gun wns nred, the exposures being made ut Intervals of 1-2,000
of ii second. So well did the mechanism work that several negatives wore
actually mado before ihe projectile bid
travelled the length of tho gun uud
emerged from the muzzle. The pictures nre regurdeii as highly valuable
lo tbe science of artillery, Experiments with mortars were made with
the same apparatus wllh equal success.

CANNON   8HOT   PHOTOGRAPHED
Photographers create much amusement with photographs they make of
themselves In various attitudes, but It
has remained for tho experts of the
United Stntes army to train 12-inch
projectiles from the heavy const-defence guns to moke pictures of themselves as they go through the atmosphere so fast the ordinary eye can
hardly trace thoir flight.
Experiments of various sorts have
been made In the army with a view to
photographing the flight of Bhots from
the heavy guns. Those were begun to
secure records of tbe splashes made
by the shots falling into the water.   So
THE  CAU8E  OF  EARTHQUAKES
Until very recently all earthquake
shocks were attributed to volcanic
manifestations. Rut often the earth
is agitated In regions where there are
no volcanoes. Hence the belief has
arisen thnt earthquakes may arise independently of volcanic action. Very
often, again, when volcanoes are in
eruption there nre no earthquakes.
Subterranean cave-Ins are often the
cause of earthquakes; they are the
consequences of the action of subterranean water. When water runs
through limestone it carves out grottoes and terraces or galleries. When
in its underground run it comes in
contact with gypsum or rock-salt It
dissolves these substances and thus
vacuums are formed in the depths of
the earth. When the water has worn
the earth thin the earth gives way and
regions above it. In well-worked coal
mines great hollows are made whlcb
produco similar results.
Thc layers forming lhe solid envelope of the earth ure neither homogeneous nor regularly distributed.
Limestone hits granite nnd relatively
recent rocks overlie ancient masses.
Limestone and schist He together like
folded cloth; layers of the sume age
are separated by abrupt gaps and
breaks nnd by the debris cast out
either side.
The crust of the earth has been compared to mnrouetry composed of many
parts which must have been joined,
broken and joined again many times.
Its component parts are unstable, their
movements are still In progress; they
shift and possibly thoir sudden shifting
causes the upper crust to tremble.
The best evidence in favor of this
explanation is that the great earthquakes have devastated countries where
tho geological layers show traces of
cave-ins and slips, ln Japan an earthquake raised the ground about twenty-
one feet and the rise ran for a distance of 112 kilometers. An earthquake in Alaska, occurring in 1899,
raised the coaat for a long distance.
Earthquakes are limited to two zones;
one embraces Himalaya, Asia Minor,
thc coasts of the Adriatic, Italy, the
Alps, the Pyrenees, Algeria, Andalusia,
and southern Portugal; the other zone
comprises the two coasts of the Pacific ocean. The majorily of earthquakes have been produced in the first
zone.
Tho current thnt has transferred lis
energy lo llie wing and has been deflected downward, may be termed spent
current and Is henceforth not only use-
Lss'but obstructive through lis power
to neutralize the reflective force of the
sub-layers of tbe current that otherwise
would reflect from the lower and rear-
wan1, portion of a wider wing.
The albatross cuts a wide swath, for
he hns no occasion to economize space
und disdains to deal with any of the
second and third grades of supportive
deflection that birds of wider wing pattern ure required to use.
As an instance of the marvellous
efficiency of this specialized bird, the
following Is worthy of credence. Over
a sea that shows no indications of wind
he will follow a steamship steaming 12
knots a u hour. Poised over the
steamer's quarter without visible movement to bis wings, *to. will remain there
for hours with no imaginable support
but the force of the uprush of air displaced by the progress of Iho ship.
HELP FOR THE TURK
I'he Italian commanders In Tripoli
nre gravely troubled by the determination <>f the SenUBSl Arabs to join In the
fun. The Senusst huve never been
favorites in Constantinople, nnd there*
fore hnvo fell under no obligations to
flght for the Turk, but as the conflict
bus now become a religions one they
nro gradually joining tho fray, and
tbelr help mentis muoh. Tbeir number
exceeds 1(10,000 well armed and well
mounted warriors, and they are said to
possess $10,000,000 in cash reserved for
tbo great day Of the Jehad or Holy-
War. Tbo religion of the Senussi is a
sort of mystical Mohammedanism, but
those who know them well say that
they are Freemasons with a constitution, rites, and ceremonies identical
with those of the western fraternity.
The main body of the Senussi live tn
the heart of the Libyan desert, where
they are said to have built a great
white elty and to have stored a vast
collection of war material in readine.s
for the day that every Mohammedan
believes will come when the green flag
will float triumphant over the world.
WAR WITH  LIGHT HEART
With some surprise we learn that
Emile Olllvler, the famous minister of
Napoleon III. Is still alive. Perhaps it
was as well that there should be no
speedy reunion between Olltvier aad
his Imperial master In that section of
the elyslan fields reserved for emperors and their ministers. Ther-i
might have been recriminations There
might have been "words." for It was
Olllvler wbo persuaded Napoleon Into
the Franco-Prussian War and wliu da-
dared in the French parliament that
"it is with a light heart that I assume
full responsibility.'' He was known
henceforlh as "the man with the ligh*-
heart," and it seems that he haa itill i
light heart, for he emerges from thu
retirement on the Rlvtera With the assurance that there will be no Eur-ipean
war this year, that rumors to the .on-
trary are an absurdity. One would
suppose that the man who entered into
the Franco-Prussian war with a llghr
heart would have emerged from it with
a heart permanently heavy, but Olllvler
under the weight of his eighty-sev»n
yenrs and his memories is as debonair
as ever.
SEAFARING RACES
The portraits of Capt. Amundsen
show a certain likeness to Dr. Nansen.
Roth have In a marked degree the long
narrow skull of the Vikings. It is a
curious circumstance that the seafaring races, whether on the Raltie or on
iho Mediterranean, have this type of
head, while the Inlanders of Europe are
predominantly of lhe broad headed
Alpine sort.
Rut lt will hardly do to make long
headedness thc cause of seamanship,
is some enthusiasts have done, for the
Japanese, who are roundheahed, take
eadlly (o (he sea.
THE ALBATROS8 AND THE GULL
Thc gull has approximately 3 square
feet of surface and the albatross 134
square feet. The mass of a body Increases us the cube of the dinmeter,
while the surface only as the square.
The advuntage this gives the larger
bird Is lhat whereas tho gull has only
tbc Inerlta of material to the weight of
13 ounces to tho square foot of surface
with which to combat tbc clinging tendency of the air, nnd Its resistance to
displacement, thc albatross has 19
OUneei to the square foot. Putting It
differently, suppose tbe auli-frlctlnnal
refinement of the Iwo birds to be equal,
the wind has t ut ITI.! the power to retard the progress of the albatross thnt
It has lo hinder the gull. This but
roughly nppmxlmntcs tho truth but ts
sullicient, especially as a correct rendering of values Is ns yet impossible.
There are, however, other features
tbat differentiate tho gulls from tho
true soarers. Tho wing length of th
gull bul little exceeds the length of tho
body—In flying attitude—but it is suf
fieiently long to tnx the bird's endur
once whon the weather Is calm and his
own muscular effort needed to keep
them In constnnt motion.
The wing of the albatross Is nearly
double thc length of his body, while the
average width of the wings Is but
slightly greater tban thnt of the gull.
As might be expected, the nlbntross
docs little flapping at any time.
Tho dilTehenee ln the proportions of
these two birds signifies a proportional
efficiency In obtaining deflective support from the wind.
When wings are comparatively flat,
like those of the two birds under comparison, that portion of their area having the greatest reflective efficiency ts
continuous to tbe forward edge.
THE WORLD'S CALENDARS
Of the many calendars used in ill
times and in all countries the four now
mainly In use are the Gregorian. .Julian.
Mussulman, and Chinese calendars.
The Gregorian or new style is the erne
used by all Christian nations ex.-ept the
Slavs. The Gregorian calendar dotal
from the year 1582. Before that time
all Christianity used the Julian -:alen-
dar, which is based on a year of ',*•■'■.
days, though the mean value of rhe
ostronomicnl year is only MB days. Av%
hours, forty-eight minutes, ami forty-
six seconds—a slight difference •vhich
amounts to one entire day in IU resn
The civil year of the Julian calendar
was too long; its beginning incessantly
retarded the beginning of the solar year:
and nt the end of the sixteenth century
the calendar was ten days ahead. Pope
Gregory XIII ord'-red the day following,
October r>, 15S2. to be called October TS.
1582. Having rid the calendar of the
drag of ten days, the Pope created leap
year every fourth year. Then calculating thnt this would result in a drag of
three duys every four hundredth year.
It was decided to suppress the extr i-ia;'
in the Inst year of each century, unless
the century year was exactly divisible
by 400. Thus the years 1700, MOO, ind
IflOO were not teap years, but th*» fetf
2000 wilt be one. The Julian calendar
(old style) was used all over Europe
until the reform in the year 15*>_.
The present form of the Mussulman
calendar dates from the first year of the
Heglra, which began the sixteenth day
of July in the year 622 A.D. In the
Mussulman calendar the months follow
the course of the moon nnd .ir*1 of
twenty-nine or thirty days; th*'- years
are alwnys composed of twelve months
nnd number 3r,4 or 850 .lavs So the
Mussulman your Is n purely lunar rear;
and from one year to another It
begins either ten or eleven days earlier
In (he solar year. Naturally enough, the
lunar calendar does not correspond
with tho division of the seasons ind
tbo religious feasts, notably Ramadan-
bo Mussulman Lent- -come nt different
times In tbe year,
The Chinese calendar Is both lunar
nnd solar. The Chinese year ordinarily
comprises twelve months, but sometimes n thirteenth Is slipped Into the
year to establish something like hnr-
mony botween tho movements of the
moon nnd the movements of the sun.
Tho common years contain either IM
or 3","> days; and the "full" years, the
yonrs of thirteen months, contain 3M
days, Complex astronomical calculations wore made by the ancient students of the stars, the men who established (he Chinese calendar. The civil
dny begins nt midnight, it is divided
Into twelve equal parts, nnd tho days
have no special names. Lunar tables
and solar tables nro required In making B Chinese onlendnr. because the
movements of the planets nre calculated. The results of the calculations
mnde with tbo astronnmlcnl tables
then known were published in 1144 by
the Trlhunnl of Mnthomntlcs of Peking
for a period beelnnlag In LOU nnd ending In 2021. That publication, known
under tho nnmo of Wan-Nien-Chow, Is
the basis ef lhe entendnrs presented
every yenr to tbo Emperor nml published throughout Chinn.
