It had been opened by a tall fair man,
with a pnle-tlr held on one h.inel. The
hall door of the New Collage opened
straight inlo the hall sitting-room,
without which no house of iis type
in complete, 'flic hall was evidently
usi-el by Mr. Egerton as a s'uelio. li
had a gooel northern lignt Irom two
windows at lhc back. He had been
painting when llicy had knocked al
the door.
".Ah, come in," he said; "how d'ye
do? You don't mind if I go on
painting, elo you? The light is particularly good today. Louise, lhis is
Mr.���"
Hc stopped suddenly, anil laughed.
The handsome, dark young woman
who was posing for liim, n veil o>
blue over her silken black hair, onc
arm supporting the sleeping child,
frowned. The man was so debonair,
so bright with his golden fairness,
that the Si|uirc rather wondered she
could frown.
"My name is lVIcyrick," he saiel. "I
live at Silverthorne Manor. Ami this
is my cousin, Hilary Strangways."
"Ah, delighted to sec you. 'lake a
chair. Louise, my elear, Mr. Mcyrick.
You've moved Susan's head a little,
Louise. Just wait till 1. settle it. All,
that's right. 1 always talk better
when I'm painting. You'll have some-
tea?"
Despite llis prejudice against Mr.
Draper aud all his works, the Squire
conceded menially that the room was
a chaining one. It was plainly whitewashed, ami the floor was stained and
beeswaxed, a few rugs upon it. There
were low book cases around the wall.
A volume bound in parchment lay on
the round table within reach of Mrs.
Egerlon'a hand. It had evidently
been in use, for lhc pages lay open.
There were a few bits of good china
and glass, standing about as though
laid down carelessly; sonic bits of
brilliant Eastern stuffs; canvases on
the walls or floor, leaning againsl
chairs and bookcases. There was
something bizarre and delightful
about this interior. The color of the
loose garment Mrs. lidgcrton was
wearing���a deep Virgin blue, as you
-hall sometimes sec a night sky in
timiincr, wilh gold stars upon it, was
very beautiful. It brought out the
dark beauty of Louise Edgcrton's
face framed in the heavy hair���hair
straight as falling water���which hung
loosely about her.
"May 1 move, Leo?" she asked, in a

plaintive  voice.    "I   want   Dolly    to
see io the tea."
"Vim  can't   move,"  said  her    hus
band,   "If yo\j   move   you'll   spoil
everything.   Polly was gardening out
ihere a minute ago.   It isn't often llic
light is so gooel."
"Let me go," said Hilary.
"If ymi will be so good," Lionel
Egerton, relieved, went on with his
painting, "She can't have got very
far, 'I lie domain is li ll extensive.
Iiii l tell her wc want sor*ic tea."
Ililury went wiih alacrity, lie was
mi lhe track of llic pink suii-b'inr.et,
Willi a pleasurable feeling of anticipation he followed tin: privet lodge
to the little opening. Then he taught
sight of her.
She was nol alone. She was talking to a man; and there was a certain roughness about the man which
aroused an unreasonable resentment
and repulsion in Hilary Slrangway's
fniiid. The fellow was not a gardener, llis air of easy intimacy forbade
the assumption, lie had apparently
been helping Miss Egerton���-if thai
was her name���in some gaidcniug operation, for the two Stood nide by
side before a newly-turned bed, and
llie man had a piece of string between
his lingers with which he might have
been measuring the ground.
Hilary had no idea how slim and
elegant he himself leiokcel as he cam-:
up llle garden path towards Ihem, Hc
glanced at the other man, a haughty
challenge he was unaware of in his
eyes. 'The. other man looked back al
him with au insolent expression
which he took no trouble to disguise,
He stood squarely where he was, with
an air of having a.s much right in the
place as Hilary.
"1 beg your pardon," Hilary said,
lifting his hat. "Mrs. Egerton aske-d
me to lind you. She s.-.iel something
about tea."
"I will come," saiel the girl, ami
lifted her eyes to Hilary Strangway's
face. She had magnificent eyes of
dark blue, wilh long deep golden
lashes. Thc eyes had a sl range look,
as though she were jusl wakening oul
of sleep.
"I will come," she saiel, nne! looked
at the man she had been talking to
as. though she were afraid. It was a
momentary expression. She turned
and walked in the direction of the
New Cottage. Thc man wilh whom
she had been talking, looked at Hilary with an insolent and challenging
expression. His eyes were .cllow in
the whites of (hem. Hilary, if he
observed the expression, did not notice it. Hc forgol the incident when
hc came up with Miss l-'ge.ton, who
was certainly beautiful lo look at;
.-ind the more beautiful for her eyes
b-ing full of sleep, and lhe iitrangc,
half-unwilling wav in which she:
walked.
CHAPTER V.
For Dolly
Intimacy made, rapid progress between the Squire and Hilary and the
Egcrtons. They were Bohemians,
yet unlike any Bohemians the Squire
had met before. 'To her height and
(.Icildcrncss and her pensive beauty,
Mrs. Egerton added a lovely voice.
When her husband allowed her lo
sland up and move about, having deposited the sleeping child in a corner of thc sofa, she moved beautifully
in her wonderful blue garments. She
had taken off ihe veil and laid it
away, and had coiled her hair up will
a jewelled pill through it on lop eif
her small head.
"I am going to help Dolly to cut
bread and builty," she said, smiling at
Hilary. "Will you come too, Mr.
Strangways?"
Would Hilary go? Hilary was onlv
loo delighted. He would have gone
anywhere at the behest of a woman
so gracious anel charming as Mrs.
Egerton, lie could not imagine that
Mrs. Egerton ever rould be anything
but  gracious and charming.
Dolly Egerton stood by a table iu
'In- toy kitchen cutting the bread and
butler with an absent air. Thc tray
hail already been set wilh its pretty
cups and sauccis, ils silver basin of
sugar and jug of cream. Thr' kettle
was singing ou a little oil slovc.
Everything was very clean and
bright. A canary was iu thc sunny
window, lhe deep sill of which held
a window-box full of narcissi and
their fresh green grasses. 'The girl
in her green overall, with a couple
of "wonderful red roses embroidered
at liie neck, where they seemed id
hold it together, was iu keeping wilh
the Arcadian kitchen.
"You are nearly ready, Dully?" said
Mrs. Egerton, and a coldness car.ic
into her soft, trailing voice.
"Yes," the girl answered dreamily,
"I was just about lo make the tc-i."
"Then there is nothing lor me to
do. I'd better go back, or Leo will
be fuming and will wake up the infant."
"Lct mc make the lea." said Hilary
eagerly. "You've no idea how well I
Viakc tea. I learned it at Oxforel. 1
can't  drink other people's tea."
"Yes. elo let him make the lea, Dol
ly," said Mrs. Egerton "I wonder V
1 shall like it I never like Dolly's
tea"
The girl kept her ryes down while
her sister-in-law remained.   Even an
unobservant person like Hilary began
to bc aware of some trouble between
tiie two.
"Dolly is always half asleep," saitl
Mrs. Egerton,
As joon as lhc door had closed,
Dolly lifted her eyes. Some of tiie
ileepincss had passed away Iron*
ihem. They certainly were glorious
eyes���something golden in the deep
blue eif ihem- stormy ryes, full eif a
capacity for passionate feeling, which
set Hilary Strangways lo ihinking
how she would look al  a man if she
loved bin1.
Her face brightened as she looked
at  him.
She smiled,
"Now," she said, "1 am going tir
watch you making lhc ten. I hope
Louise will like il heller than mine,
There is always something wrong
about my tea lo poor Louise. Aflcr-
warels yi'ni shall carry lhe tea in for
me, if you will be so gout, anel 1
shall gei on cutting bread and luiller."
She found llilll au old .-uina teapot iu a cupboard high up in the wall
to which she had lo stretch in order
to reach it. Handing il lo him Iheir
banets loitehed, and he was slruelc by
the hardncss.of hers, lie supposed
she had to work, poor lillle: thing. It
was a thousand pities she had lo spoil
her poor pretty hands.
He put lhc tea into the pot in reckless masculine: fashion, absolutely refusing to heat llie teapot, or act according to any of the: formulae. lie
had loeikeel critically at lhc lea in llie
till while he ladled il out; and she
laughed, a fresh, girlish laugh, wilh
the sleepiness geme from il.
"What's the matter with il?" she
asked.
"Where docs it come from?"
Mr. Draper, our    landlord,    who
keeps the village shop, and runs Silverdale generally."
"Oh, lhat ruffian!"
Again the girl's face changed, fl
was an extraordinary face for changes
of expression.
"I did not know he was a ruffian,"
she said, with a shade of resentment
in her voice. "He is a very worthy
person. Of course you w:ould not
like him here, in the country, where
you arc all such Conservatives.''
(To Bc Continued.)
Turning Breweries
Into Milk Factories
The Kconomic Result of Growth of
Prohibition in the United States
Prohibition is having an unexpected economic result in Ihe United
Stales. The closing of the breweries
as such has not destroyed their value
as factories, and they are being pui
to various uses. In Tuscon, Arizona.
one brewery was turned inlo a malted milk plant, and is striving for top
hole in lhis line. Another has turned to canning, a third inlo a creamery, and a fourth has became a refrigerating plant, A Denver brewery
has also gone in for mailed milk.
One of the important factors aboul
llie change is that the new businesses
employ three times as many hands
as thc breweries. Probably the economic side of ihc argument will
eventually Im.ve far greater weight
than the old-fashioned appeal to ethics or morals. Railways and banks
anil other institutions ate nol in the
least concerned about the moral side
of the prohibition question, but they
arc umeniniotis iu exacting prohibition among llieir employees, for the
simple reason that efficiency pays,
and when a man is paid for his time
the utmost efficiency is expected for
the money, even at lhe expense of
prohibition, It has been found lhat
there is more money to spend in retail purchases where prohibition has
been adopted, than formerly, ami this
had the effect of lining up llie whole
of the rei.iii traelc against their former chief competitor, Businesses
that have found their turnover Increased a third or a half, or even in
some cases doubled, arc nol anxieiiis
lo face a condition which would
bring back the Mel slate of affairs.
Thc legitimate hotel business does
not appear to have: suffered from thc
.adoption of prohibition anywhere,
anil while some houses have been
closed they were such as subsisted
entirely em bar receipts. The erection of new and palatial hotels in prohibition districts indicates lhat mine
host still perceives profits.���From lhc

"Robert," said his teacher, slernly.
"you are incorrigible. 1 shall certainly havc to ask your father to
sec inc."
"Better not do that, teacher," responded the: youngster; "pop charges
$_ a  visit."
Jock McKie,   a   bricklayer,    was
working ou a job, wiih an.apprentice,
In the course of the forenoon lhc
boss visited the job, and, failing lo
find Jock anywhere about the premises, decided to wait his return.
"Where have you been?" demanded
the boss when lhe bricklayer pill in
an appearance. "Gcltin' ma hair cut,"
answered Jock quite rooly. "And
how elan- vou gel your hair cut in my
lime?" "Wcel, distia it grow in your
lime?"
Th. Difference
A good .vory against himself ia
told by llic Archbishop of Canterbury.
When he was a curate at Thirl-
ford he conducted a Sunday school
class in a neighboring parish.
The subject was King Solomon,
ami after thc lesson hc catechized the
children.
"Tell uie, boys," he saiel, "what
was the difference between Solomon
and olhcr men."
There   was no answer.
"tome,  come,"    said    the    future
Primate,    "was  there any  difference,
for instance, between  King Solomon
laud myself."
A small hand wenl up and a (invoice replied!
I    "Please, sir, Solomon was wise."--.

A machine originally designed to

���eed lo plant trees In New York
State under the supervision of the
Forest Service. From 10,000 to 15,-
���00 forest tree seedlings are planted
bi a day's lime with ihis machine,
Tbe contrivance is of about the same
proportions as a mowing machine
���nd requires the services of three
-Ben and two horses. One man
sirives while the other two handle
the seedlings. In operation, lhe machine makes a furrow into which the
���mall trees arc dropped at regular intervals governed by an automatic spacer. As this is done, a pair
���I rollers replace lhe dirt aboul thc
soots, wliicli arc mechanically supplied with water and fertilizer. A
���urkcr draws the line on which the

Britain Pieparing 20,000 Aeroplanes
Rear-Admiral l'crry, U. S. N., is
ftsponsible- for a very remarkable
statement concerning preparations in
Europe for extending thc scope and
power of aerial warfare,
"Developnieni of lhc aeroplane will
mean a revolution in travel and commerce as it has meant in "war," Rear-
Admiral Peary said. "Jn France
there are said to be more men in
the aviation service than arc in the
army of the United Slates, and in
Great Britain more than in our navy.
Germany is said to have 10,000 acro-
rlanes. Great Britain is preparing
jr an aviation army of 160,000 men
with a flecl of 20,000 aeroplanes. The
time is near when thc air service will
be more important than thc army
���nd navy combined. It is the belief
oi many statesmen that the decision
in the great war may come iu the
air."

Sudan Grass Pastures
Good Pasture Can    Bc    Maintained
During the Early Summer
Sudan grass is a quidt, sure, and
very nourishing pasture lor pigs and
i alves.
Last spring, quite late, I sowed
several acres broadcast, and in spile
of a very protracted drouth, the plant
made a remarkable growth. Hogs
and calves were turned m when I lie
grass was about three and one-half
leet high, 'the slock ale il ravenously, making a splendid gam. Alter the:
crop was well caleu elown, the stock
were transferred to another pasture,
and in three weeks the: second crop
was again ready for Ihem. lty having two lields, sowing one two weeks
before the other, and changing the
stuck from one pasture lo liie other
as thc crop is grazed, a firsl-dass
pasture can be maintained during ihc
entire summer.

MRS.     WILLIAMS     SAYS   USE
DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS
She Suffered for Two    Years,    But
Three Boxes   of    Dodd's    Kidney
Pills Made Her a New Womun.
Adamsville, Kent Co., N. IJ.������l.Spc-
cial)���"1 can recommend Dodd's Kidney   I'ills  to every  woman  who suffers."   So says Mrs. Williams, a well-
known and highly respected lady residing here. Mrs. Williams was a sufferer  for  two  years    till  she    used
Dodd's  Kidney fills,    She found in
them eiuick relief ami complete cure.
1 hat is why she is so enthusiastic in
her praise of them.
"My troubles started with a cold,"
Mrs. Williams states. "1 never seemed to get over the effects of it. I had
cramps in my muscles and my joints
were stiff. There were dark circles
under iny eyes which were puffed and
swollen. 1 had a bitter taste in my
uiouih and i suffered "from severe
hcaelachcs.
"I lell heavy and sleepy after
meals and had attacks of neuralgia.
Heart fluttcrings and rehumausm
were soon added to my troubles. I
look just three boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills. 1 cannot be too glad that
1 did so."
Every one of Mrs. Williams' symptoms was a symptom of kidney disease. That is why Dodd's Kidney
I'ills cured her.

Britain's New Problem
In spile of all warnings that it was
unwise in the extreme for wives and
families of Canadian soldiers to follow their husbands and fathers overseas, it is estimated there are now-
over 50,000 of these dependents there
is causing uneasiness. There arc two
disquieting views of lhc situation:
First ,the fact that it means so many
more mouths to feed in thc old country at a time when economy in food
consumption is essential; second, that
the transportation of these people
back to Canada at the end of thc war
will be n problem that steamship
companies confess themselves unable
to solve.���Loudon Advertiser.

havc much reason to bc grateful to
Dr. Williams' l'ink I'ills as they restored me to health, if, indeed, they
did not save my life. In 1914 I began to feel run down, and the doctor who was called in said that mine
was a bad case of anaemia. I lost
flesh, always felt tired, and I got so
nervous thai I could scarcely hold a
cup to take a drink. My heart
would flutter alarmingly. The doctor did not seem to be able to help
mc at all and my family and friends
all thought that I was in a decline and
couhl not recover. 1 was in bed for
some weeks when an aunt came to
sec mc and urpeel that I try Dr. Williams' l'ink I'ills. My father got a
supply, and by the time 1 had taken
three boxes there was a noticeable
improvement, and from that ou I
steadily progressed toward recovery.
1 continued using the pills for some
time longer, and they restored mc to
my old time health and strength. I
shall never cease to praise this medicine, and to urge all weak run down
girls to give it a fair trial as I have
proved in my own case their great
merit."

With so thorough a preparation at
hand as Miller's Worm Powders thc
mother who allows her children to
suffer from the ravages of worms is
unwise and culpably careless. A child
subjected to the attacks of worms is
always unhealthy and w'U be stunted
in its growth. It is a merciful act
to rid it of these destructive parasites,
especially when it can be done without difficulty.
Artificial Milk
A process has been discovered in
England for the manufacture of artificial milk for human consumption.
It is claimed that a wholesome and
inexpensive substitute can bc made
from peanuts, soya beans, sugar, water, and thc mineral salts found in
milk. The milk so produced, it is
stated, may bc condensed and sold
in tins in the usual way or dried to
a powder and sold in bottles. It may
be given a certain percentage of
cream by the addition of cocoanut or
one of thc other tasteless nut fats.
The residual meals, rejected after the
special factors required havc been
taken from them, are mixed, dried
until they contain only ten per cent,
of water, and used as foot! for cattle.
As a curiosity, the "milk" thus produced would bc interesting. Thoush
it i* questionable whether it would
prove an acceptable substitute

Speak Easily mi Directly
Into the Telephone
Even telephone men ol Ioiik experience arc surpriseel at the ({renter voice distinctness when spenkiiiKelirectly into the telephone. When
you soeak elirectly into the telephone, a lower tone ol voice can be used
anel your friend can hear easily.
Moreover, when you speak lower, the actual tone qualities of your
voice are transmitted. When you speak loudly you unconsciously
adopt an unnatural tone of voice, with the result that mnch of that
intimacy that should be associated with face-to-face talk is lost.
A close position to the telephone means easy talking ana easy
hearing.

The Three Functions
of the Liver
1.   It manufactures the bile essential in the
process of digestion.
.2.   The starch and sugars derived from the
food are stored in the liver and sent to
the tissues as needed.
3.   It detects and destroys poisons.
Dire Results of
Overeating
From tho standpoint ot
health man's cardi-_.l sin
ia overeating.
The digestive system can
look after a certain amount
of food, but when continually crowded the food mass
is delayed in the alimentary
canal and what is not digested ferments.
In other words, this food
spoils or rots, and poison
ous bacteria are given off.
It is the duty of the liver
to destroy these poisons. Il
usually succeeds, but after
a time it tires, increase!! in
size from overwork, and
finally fails,
What Failure of
the Liver Means
The poisons then hurry
through the liver and into
other organs or tissues.
Then you have torpid
liver,    indigestion,    head
aches, bad breath, bilious
spells and irregular action
of the bowels.
This condition is described as auto-intoxication, or
self-poisoning by food.
Cirrhosis of the liver follows. Complications set in-
Bright 's disease, hardening
of the arteries, apoplexy
are natural developments.
But these conditions do
not come on you suddenly.
Tou have months or years
of warning.
How to Get the
Liver Right
The thing to do is to keep
the liver active and the
bowels regular by use of
such treatment as Dr.
Chase's Kidney-liver Pills,
and you will then run no
risk of such serious developments.
This medicine acts directly and specifically on
the  liver.    By   promptly
awakening the sluggish
action of this all-important
organ a good flow of bile
Is ensured. This is poured
into the intestines, where it
acts as Nature's cathartio
in keeping tht bowels
regular.
Prevent Host of
Ills
Such a multitude of ills
arise from sluggish action
of the liver, kidneys and
bowels that Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills are considered a household necessity wherever their merits
are known.
By all means regulate
your diet to your needs.
Then remember that
when your liver does get
wrong and threatens to np*
set the whole digestive sys.
tem Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills will afford quick
relief and prevent all serious complications.

Australian Women Arc Nol Going to

Australia making provision for wo-

soldiers sit lhc fronl by proxy,
The bill was desired by several
Australian wdincn'a organizations
on the ground lhat llie- duration of
lhc war was greatly disturbing the
normal course eif engagements. It
was argued that prolonged absences
made for uncertainty, and thai immediate marriage, where desired,
would make lhc position uf the woman secure anil entitle her to the
usual separation allowances.
Very many hundreds of Australian soldiers have married
girls while in England, A desire
was expressed also by soldiers, who
did not expect to be away from
home so long when they enlisted.
The example of the French law- was
much quoted iii the controversy.

One of tiie mosl eloquent Irihutcs
paid by a neutral writer to the part
Ureal JSiilain is playing in the war ii
contained iu a recall issue of the
Boston News Bureau, which ia reproduced in the Wall Street Journal. The
writer says lhat all the wonders of
lhc world, ancicui or modem fade
when compared with v.hat Britain is
doing today. A commercial nation of
not .10,000,1)00 people suddenly summoned lo arms where no arms existed has produced a bigger army than
lusiory ever before recorded, and a
war machine in Europe that for
wealth of shell, explosive and war
power is the amazement oi the Ger-
nians. Britain has done in thirty
months what Germany took thirty
ycais to do, and she has done it more
thoroughly and on a vaster scale.
Withoul an English airplane engine
capable of circling hi r own islands
she has vanquished the boasted Zeppelin and is the mistress of her own
ikies. With submarines by the hundred threatening her coasl defences
and her food supply she has swept
all oceans, bottling the German fleet,
with the exception of an odd raider
like the Mocwe and the vessel that is
now preying upon merchantmen in
Englishjthe .South Atlantic. She has made:, as
the writer says, "the English Channel her multiple track ocean railway
lo France, with no loss by Zeppelin
or submarine; (ought in Africa, in thc
(.'anal, the Dardanelles; grappled
with lhe Turk anel the Bulgar; changed generals and admirals in command; changed cabinets; fed the armies of Prance; maintained the armies and the governments of Belgium and Serbia, and altogether advanced three thousand million of
dollars, or three limes thc national
tlebl of the Uniled Slates, lo her allies."
This is admittedly some considerable achievement    for the    ''ice-cold
haberdashers of tire Thames."   VVhil

'Twenty-live years ago tlie machinery
of England' stamped out the
of
nous for many others.    She was the
ordnance maker of the world.     'Then

means of government bounties, cheap

British wealth reared anew her    old
metal industries and transformed
ihein into munition plains. This is
not, as the. writer says, a fight between armies; it is a struggle between nations, lend in England ��� very
man, woman and child i* dcvol d to
only one object, the winning of th*
war.
The writer calls attention to :h*
fact that this is not merely a struggle between the finance, thc metal
and the soldiers of iwo rival groups.
li is also a su-ugglc for economic existence in order that the fighting for"
ces may be increased. Germany was
lhc first of lhe belligerents to realize
that war power might be increased
by cutting out luxuries; but England
has grasped the fact and she is prepared to go as far as Germany or
even farther in denying herself anything whose consumption mighi -relay the cud of the war. The Hriiish
people are organizing in clot.ing,
food, drink, the discarding of unnecessary comforts, increase in the
energies and hours of labor and the
mutual burdens of all forms of taxation. And the nation will be better
for it after the war. As Lloyd George said, the nation has been in training. Whatever the war debt of the
Empire is when the tight is over, it
will be easily dealt with by people
who have learned the lessons that
the English people are learning and
who wiil not forget the lessons; yet
thc writer quoted says that while the
world is coming into a new civilization, the people in the United States
appear to have little comprehension
of the issues and the economic results that must inevitably flow there-
from.

Tractor Slowly Taking the Place of
Horses for all Kinds of F-na
Work
The tractor can completely supplant the horse for all work on tie
farm only when the farmer ceases t.
think of work in terms of horses and
begins to think of it in terms or engines, in the opinion of VV. H. Sanders, instructor of farm motors in the
Kansas Agricultural College. U the
farmer demands it the designing engineer will construct engines to da
every task which lhe horse does today.
"Just as horse power in the pajt
has supplanted the man with the hoe,
so in the future the tractor will supplant the horse," says Mr. Sandere.
"It took man many years to realize
he could greatly increase his cnirci-
ency. Today few men realize that
lhe tractor is slowly taking the place
of lhe horse for all manner of fara
work. It is replacing the horse for
thc same reason that the horse replaced the slave���it is more efficient."
The advent of the tractor, believes
-Mr Sanders, means changes in the
methods of agriculture just as the
working of hor.es has meant changes
in methods since the work was done
by skives. Next spring, at least three
traction companies will place upon
the market engines designed especially for_ the cultivation of rowed
crops. This is an indication of the
trend of progress in the manufacturs"
of tractors.
