(Stopping iinly for meals, they bad
by dusk, when Sutcombe insisted upon a halt, collected a good quantity
of the gold-bearing quartz; but ns he
nnd the girls bent over it, n dilli-
culty presented itselt to his mind.
"How nre we going to get this
awny?" he nsked, thoughtfully,
"Pack it in boxes!" replied Vivienne, triumphantly; but Nino snw what
wus pnssing in bis mind und shook
her head.
"There would not be boxes
enough," she snid.
"And we eould not get it nway
without taking the men inlo our confidence,'' snid Sutcombe; "nnd though
they are good fellows, well— Is there
any man who could resist the temptation to desert nnd nml— for this
Golden Isle? Of course, whnt we
want is a mill to stump, crush the
qiinrtz—" \"
"But not having it, we must get
the gold itself," said Nina, "My
father spoke of finding some in lny-
ors—placers, I think he called it; und
ho said it was in tint valley, south
by southeast. Ho said"—her voice
shook a little as she recalled the
■cene—"that it wns quite easy to
"I'll go there to-morrow," said
Sutcombe. "1 will go nlone, for it
will lie too fnr for Vivienne, and,
besides, Decima—Miss Wood"—he faltered, and Vrvienno looked from one
to the other as he stumbled over the
names, "I think you ought to rest.
I don't like your working as you
have done to-day."
Nina shook ber hend.   "It bas not
hurt  me;    it  has helped    me,"     she
said,   quickly.    ""Out  we  will  stay at.
homo and keep house  to-morrow,    if
you wish it," she added,  meekly.
;   That night when the two girls were
undressing Vivienne laid her hand on
Nina's arm    with gentle deprecation
and whispered:
1   "Has he spoken, DeciniR?"
,   Nina's silence wns answer enough.
"And—and is it of no use. dear?"
— ina Shook   her head   land  tougni
.with tho tears that rose to her eyos.
"No,"  sho said,  almost inaudibly.
''I am so sorry 1   Ah, how cold   tho
Words sound; and what would I not
give if—it I could   have said 'yes' I
Lady Vivienno, your brother is   the
best, the most unselfish—"
She stopped suddenly, for tho
words recalled those Fleming had
used when ho was speaking of Vane
Mannering. Her face wont crimson,
then paler than before.
"Thero is somo ono else, dear?"
whispered Vivienne. "Oh, poor Sutcombe!'.'
"Oh, poor mel" sprang from Nina's
lips with mingled sadness and bitterness.
Vivienne looked at her. "Was it—
was it somo one in the ship that was
lost, eome one who was hore on the
Island? Oh, don't think me.curious,
dear. I am wondering lf 1 can help
you.   It is not possible?"
Nina shook her'head. "No, no one
can help mo," she said. Then suddenly tho craving for the sympathy of
this sweet friend of hers melted her
Into partial confidence.
"Wo wero thrown together—linked
by Fate—but—but he did not care
for mo. There—there was some one
else—" She stopped and turned her
faco away, calling to her pride to
bum up her tears.
The clasp of Vivienne's hand became a caress.
"And you, denr—you cannot forget! You love him still, though you
are parted—"
Ninn's head drooped and Vivienne
was answered. She thought of her
"May I tell Sutcombe?''' she said in
a low voice.
"Yes," said Nina; "please tell hiia.
I—I want hirii to understand that—
that what he wishes can never bo,
that I am bound—"
"Bound?" echoed Vivienne in surprise; but Nina, remembering her
promise, would say no more.
The next morning Vivienne gave
Sutcombe Nina's message.
He nodded olnfost savagely. "I
understand," he said. "The man,
whoever ho Is, hns broken her heart.
And ft is my fate to have to stand
by and look on—helpless! Some
day"—he paused—"some day I may
have the luck to meet bim. If so—"
"You will remember ithnt she—she
loves him still!" Vlvjcnno put in
.with gontlo earnestness.'
Ho went oft moodily to the
valley. At his return at nightfall
ho brought with him a bog full of
small nuggets and dust, and reported thnt, ns Ur. Wood had snld, large
quantities flf gold wero thero in
placers in tlio rock and soil, and
plenty of dust in tho bed of the
"We'll go with you to-morrow,"
said Nina; but he would not heal' of
"It is too fnr," he said; "besides,
one mnn cun get all we shall lie able
to take on this trip without the
knowledge of the men.'''
He was not altogether disinterested
In his objection to their company,
for tho poor fellow was rather glad
to be alone with his disappointment. Tho proximity of the womnn
ono loves bnt cunnot win ls at times
a torture woll high intolerable. So
Sutcombe went up again to the valley, thero to fight, as best.ho could,
the great disappointment til his life.
It was a lovely valley and as solitary ns it wni beautiful, There was
no sound besides thnt ol Sutcombe'e
pick nnd spado nnd the rattle of the
rock ond stones ns they fell beneath
his strokes. Now and ngnin a bird
flew high up in tho sky or whirled
closo nbove his head, its bright oyes
Bcanning this Intruder on Its Bolitude
with a curiosity in wliich fear had
no share, and a lizard crawlod out of
its cranny to blink at hlni.

Sutcombe would hnve found the intense solitude and silence oppressive,
but thev SOOthod him with that balm
which Naturo holds out to those, of

feel a presence that we havo neither
heard nor seen. Oppressed by this
curious consciousness, ho looked ovor
his shoulder and saw tbe figure of a
man soatod on a rock Just above him.
Tho man sat, with his chin resting
on his hands, his elbows upon his
knees, so calmly, so absolutely liko
n .statue, that Sutcombe was half inclined to believe himself tho victim
of a dolusion, so muoh so that he
straightened himself and stared
speechlessly at the figure.
He sow that the man was young,
but thin and somewhat haggard. He
was dressed in quite a rough soa-
suit, but his hands, though tanned,
like hia faco, vi**h the eun, and
roughened by (the water and the
wind, were thoso of a gentleman.
But it was the eyes and not the
hands which held Sutcombe's regard, so full of half cynical, half
bitter amusement were they.
Sutcombc found his voice at laat.
"Hello, sir!" he said, lifting his
The man raised his hat ln response.
"How do you do?" he eaid, gravely.
"Whore—where did you come from?"
asked Sutcombe. "I did not »ee you,
know you were there!,"
Tho man Jerked, his head slowly toward tho coast behind him.
"I landed from a fishing-yawl half
an hour ago, from that side of the
island."        '
There was silence while one could
count twenty; then the newcomer
said as quietly and as gravely as
"You are gold digging, I presume?"
"I am," replied Sutcombe.
"And you are fortunate, I see."
"I am—very," assented Sutcombe.
"I congratulate you," sold the
stranger, in a tone which had no
traco of envy in it;,indeed, it was indicative of an indifference that surprised Sutcombe. "But you would
be still more fortunate if you worked
further up the valley."
Sutcombe stared at him.
"You—you know the island; have
you been here bofore?"
The faintest and grimmest of smiles
shone for a moment in the other
man's eyes.
"Yes, I know the Island; I have
been hero before," he said, quietly.
"Is this your flrst visit?"
Sutcombe nodded.
"Yes.   Are you alone, sir?"
"Yes, I am quite alone." He smiled as if ho read Sutcombe's fear.
"You need not be afraid. I shall
keep your secret. And I have no do-
sire to share in your Und. I'vo no
use for gold."
Sutcombe looked at him with
"That's a strange statement," be
said, gravely. "Most men, every
man, wants money!"
"Please regard mc as the exception
which proves the rule," was the
courtoous response. "Gold is only
worth what it will buy; it can buy
me nothing that I desire. Mny I ask
to whom I havo the pleasure of
"My name's Sutcombc," said Sutcombe.
The stranger nodded. "Lord Sut-
eombc, of Southernwood?"
"Well, yeo; Southernwood was
mine—1  sold it."
"You cnn now buy it back, Lord
Sutcombe, if you desire to do so,"
said the stranger, looking nt the bug
of gold. "Vou are a millionaire—of
the English variety. My name is—
Richard Mortimer,*' he added. "I
am on a fishing nnd shooting expedition—a solitary one, and happened
to mnke this Island in the course of
my cruise. Have you a match upon
Sutcombe hnnded his match-box,
"Mny I take half a dozen? Thanks!
I must be getting back to my boat."
He rose and picked up the gun which
hnd lnin nt his feet, and raised his
wldo-brlmod hat, But Sutcombe put
out his hand arrest ingly.
"One moment. Mr. Mortimer," he
snid. "You know this Islund, and
the secret of the gold. May 1 ask if
—If uny others know of it? I just
wnnt to know whit to expect."
"No other living person is aware
of it—but one," said Richard Mortimer, "and I do not think you have
anything to fear from that person.
Certainly you have nothing to fear
from .mo. So far as I am concerned
you are welcome to tho island and
all it contains.   Good  day."
"Wnlt!" suid Sutcombc, sharply.
His fnce had grown pale, his eyes
keen and auspicious. "Bo you mind
telling  ine  the   name   of  that    other
person, sir?"
Mr. Hichard Mortimer regarded the
flushed face, tho suspicious eyes,
thought fully.
"Ves, I do mind," he replied. "I
have un objection.*"
"It is n woman?" said SutcombO,
Richard Mortimer's face reddened
nnd his eyes grew dnrker,
"Vou nre at liberty to guess," he
said, curtly.
Sutcombe dropped the spade upon
which be had been leaning and advanced a step or two toward tho
other man.
"The only other person who knows
of thin island nnd its wealth is a
lady," he said.
"To whom you nre Indebted for
your information—and your fortune."
The retort enme like a Ilnsh.
Sutcombe reddened  again.
"That is true," he said, gravely.
"Her name is Woocl» Decima Wood.
You know her?"
Itichnrd Mortimer shook his head.
"I know of no lady benrlng that
name," ho said. Then, suddenly, his
manner changed to one of suppressed
eagerness. "She may hnve borne another. Ferhnjta you can describe
"She has dark hair and grey eyes—
they arc sometimes violet. She waa
wrecked in tho Alpina—"
A faint cry roso from. Morttpije j_Q4
he tmuw up nis neaa as a umn u.......
when he has received a sudden shock.
Sutcombe smiled bitterly.
"You appear to be startled," ho
said, sternly. "Shall I go too far if
I suggest you know tho lady, and
that she has reason to regret the
day she met you?'.' He did not need
any answer. Instinctively he felt
that the man who was tho cause of
Decima's unhappiness, who hold the
key to her secret, stood before him.
"You also were wrecked in the
Alphlna.   Bo you deny it?"
"I assent to, I deny, nothing,"
said Richard Mortimer. "If—if you
can give me any information respecting that lady—"
"I can and will," cut in Sutcombe.
"She is well and happy"—oh, Sutcombe!—"and is guarded and watched over by friends who—who will
protect hor happiness by any and every means—"
The other man stood erect, his tanned face set and stern.
"I presume I may count on you as
the lady's chief friend, Lord Sut-
"You may," retorted Sutcombe,
promptly. "And that being so, I
avail myself of the privilege to tell
you that, if you aro tho man I suspect you to bo, you are a heartless
Vane, otherwise Richard Mortimer,
stood for a moment as if turnod to
stono; thon he smiled.
"Lord Sutcombe, I have lenrned
from you that the lady we both
havo in mind is alive. Compared
with such knowledgo, all else is trivial. Alive! And happy, you say?
Thank God! Think mo what you will.
It is a matter of Indifference to me.
Stop! You sny the—the lndy is happy. Let her remain sol Do not tell
her thnt you have met me! I nm going down to my boat. In less than

that I shall never revisit it; that, in

Called  "the  Most   Beantlfnl   Gem  of
the — arth'n Scenery."
The Zambezi river, carrying a huge
volume of water two miles in width, as
lt reaches the western borders of Rhodesia precipitates itself into a cavernous gorge and thus traverses the northern plains of the country.
This great drop ln the river has produced "tbe most beautiful gem of the
earth's scenery," the Victoria falls. Almost twice as broad as Niagara and
two and a half times as high, an immense mass of water rolls over Its edge
to precipitate itself In magnificent
splendor 400 sheer feet into the narrow
canyon below.
Undeterred, the Rhodesian engineers,
without detracting from the natural
beauty of the surroundings, threw
across the canyon a splendid G50 foot
cantalever bridge aud thus opened the
way to Tanganyika, to Uganda, to
This bridge, the greatest railway engineering triumph of Africa, deserves
more than passing notice. It ennsists
of a central span weighing approximately 1,000 tons, 500 feet ln length
nnd 30 feet wide. The steel work Is of
rolled steel weighing 490 pounds to the
cubic foot. The end posts of the bridge
ere over 100 feet long. The pull on the
anchorage apparatus Is about 400 tons.
Tho contract f*r the construction was
obtained by an English firm of bridge
builders—the contract time fifty-five
weeks. The work of erection was carried on from both banks, the material
being taken across the river by means
of an aerial electric railway. The electrical conveyor of this cable way was
capable of dealing with a ten ton load
nt a lifting speed of twenty feet per
minute and a traversing speed of 300
feet a minute.
An Initial difficulty ln the construction of the bridge was the securing
of a firm foundation, and owing to the
crumbling nature of the bank a much
greater quantity of concrete was necessary than estimated.
The construction was happily unattended by accidents of a serious nature,
though a few slight accidents to body
work and the replacing from England
of one piece of steel work wero recorded. In spite of these delays the bridge
was linked up at 7 a. m. on April 1,
1903, or exactly forty-eight hours earlier than had been estimated a year before.—Lieutenant Colonel Sir Percy
Qlrouard ln Scrlbner's.

closest communion with nature, by
feeding him well balanced, nutritious
food, by giving him all that is Implied

and by doing all ln love you can thus
cultivate In this child and flx there for
all his life all ot these traits—naturally not always to tbo full In nil cases
at tho beginning of tho work, for heredity will make Itself felt first, and, ns
In the plant uuder Improvement, there
will be certain strong tendencies to re
version to former ancestral traits, but
In the mnln with the normal child you
can give him all these traits by patiently, persistently guiding him in
theso early formative years.
And, on tho other side, give him foul
air to breathe, keep hlin In a dusty factory or an unwholesome schoolroom or
a crowded tenement up under tho hot
roof; keep him nwny from Iho sunshine, take nwny from him music nnd
laughter and happy faces, cram his little brains with so called knowledge,

The question Is this: While energy is

things as to accumulate energy, making the unavailable available—notwithstanding the fuct that cosmic processes
seem to be essentially Irreversible?
Now there is assuredly no Inherent
reason why we should not accomplish
this. It Is true that hitherto all the
atomic evolution that has been observed Is atomic disintegration. We
may speak now, Indeed, of the analysis
of the elements. But so lt was, we
mny remember, that the older chemistry began, and yet analytic chemistry was the precursor of synthetic
chemistry. Wc began by breaking up
compounds, but now wc can mako

caused the horsemen to gallop to and

as to raise a cloud of dust and so veiled the movements of his infantry and

A Premier's Wit.
A woman once told Lord Palmers—n
that her maid, who had been with her
in the Isle of Wight objected to going
thither again because the climate was
not "embracing" enough. "What am I
to do with such a woman?" she asked.
"You had better take her to tbe Isle of
Man next time," said Lord Palmerston.
As Brlggsvllle was a town of 2,000
Inhabitants and boasted a fair hotel,
there had been arrivals there by train
for yenrs, but they wero what might
be termed everyday arrivals. Drummers paid the town a visit; men wheu
looking for nn opportunity to go Into
business would come that way; strangers who didn't always unburden themselves to the Inquisitive landlord would
como iinil go. Each and every guest received more or less public notice, but
dropped out of mind when he dropped
out of sight.
The man who finally arrived slipped
In so quietly that he had been a guest
for three or four dnys before it was
generally known that he was present.
He walked up from the depot Instead
of riding In the bus nnd paying a
quarter extra. lie didn't mako n rush
for the bar as soon as he arrived, ne
didn't cuss tlie train for being Into
or cuss the town on nccount of tho
mudholes ln the streets. lie took the
landlord Into his confidence at once and
explained that he was In poor health
and might spend n month In recuperating. He nte supper nnd then ant down
ln the barroom and smoked and dozed
and answered but few questions nnd
asked none at all, nnd It was the general verdict before he went to bed that
he didn't amount to shnvlugs compared
with other arrivals.
Georgo K. Jones, as the man who arrived had given his name, moved about
town for tlie next week without attracting nny particular notice nnd
without any one caring particularly
about bis health. The landlord of the
hotel had Just told a friend of his that
Jones was apparently a softy, who had
tired himself out ln wondering why a
coffeo mill turned to the right instead
of the left, wheu he was asked for a
private Interview. lie instantly mnde
up his mind that Jones wanted to stnnd
him off, but he granted the request
In two minutes there was a great
transformation. Jones of tho sleepy
eye3 and lagging feet became ns alert
as a fox. Ho acknowledged tlmt he
had registered under a false name; he
confessed that ho was not whnt be
seemed; he owned up that he was at
the head of a detective agency and
ready to do business with his host on
the most liberal terms. There hndn't
been any crime of nny account nround
Brlggsvllle for several years, but this
state of affairs could uot last much
longer. There would be a crime wave
sweeping along pretty soon, and his
agency wanted to bo In lt and make
most of the arrests aud receive most
of lie rewards.
Ho wns there In advance of the wave
to lay his wires. Ho wanted to make
of tho landlord n detective—a real old
sleuth of tlie flrst order—and he had a
printed commission duly dated and
signed that would be exchanged for a
twenty dollar bill. Tbe landlord wns
to spot robbers and murderers as fast
as they turned up and send In his reports and receive half tho rewards.
It did not take the proprietor of the
Clarion over Ave minutes to decide on
handing over. His income from the
detective business would not bo less
tban $2,000 a year and might run to
three times that, and bis opportunities
for "spotting" were Al.
Of course he was told that looking
wise nnd sawing wood was the foundation of detective work and given many
verbal Instructions, nnd hnlf an hour
later he was down In his bar and sizing up three or four old topers ho had
known for fifteen years and wondering which of them was plotting murder. That evening he picked out no
less than seven men to keep an eye on
lu future, and lt was generally remarked tbat he seemed more alert tban
Next day the man who arrived sauntered Into the livery stable. He had
rauntered In there before, talked horse
for a few minutes and then sauntered
out again, much to the disgust of tho
owner. This time he didn't talk horse.
The liveryman was all alone, but he
wns taken to the rear end of the barn
to be communicated with. Mr. Jones
had noticed that he had a head on blm.
Jones hnd also l.otlced that he hnd an
eye like an eagle nnd a perspicacity
that enabled blm to tell a horse from
a cow on sight The liveryman wns
flattered. He couldn't help but be. He
had been called a fool often enough
for trying to conduct a livery business
in a county where there were 204 separate, distinct and steep hills nnd to
find that all the people had been wrong
about It all the time was llko pouring
sweet oil on a burn.
After nn hour's conversation thn mnn
of horses nnd buggies gave up $25 nnd
received a commission to act as detective. He was not to be confined to nny
one sort of crime, but could go ahead
and do business with criminals of nil
sorts regardless of nge or sex. Before
Mr. Jones bad left the stables the newly made detective had mado up his
mind to keep nn eye on the landlord of
tbe hotel.   He had lone susDccted that
—iuntorreit money wns being made In
the garret of the Clarion.
Tho mnn who arrived took another
saunter that day. He sauntered ln to
soo Mrs. Bascomb, who kept a small
millinery and notion store. He hnd
not come for a fall hat or a paper of
bnlrplus. What he had como for he related ln whispers, ncconipnnlcd by a
confidential demon nor. Ills agency
needed women detectives. A word
caught up now and then as a woman
customer was trying on a hat or buying a yard of tnpe might lend to tho unearthing of a grent mystery.
Mrs. Bnscomb was located next to
the postofilce.   She could keep her eye j
on the postmaster.  There was a black-1
smith shop opposite.   Slie could have
the smith ancl all his customers under ■
constant espionage.    As it wns dull
times In the millinery business, It took i
a full hour's talking to make Mrs. Bas-1
comb part with $30 In cash Iu exchange
for a detective's commission, but she ;
finally  parted   and   was   advised  to
"spot" all crosseyed men mailing letters at night after the postofflee had
During the uext week the mnn who
arrived was on the saunter most of the
time.   The two dry goods merchants
nud one of the grocers refused to buy
commissions on nccount of religious or
some  otlier  scruples,   but  everybody
else approached hud only to be talked
to for a few minutes to pay a price.  If
they wouldn't pay $30, the price was
gradually reduced to $o. Tho arrest of
a   single   murderer,  they   were  told,
would make them  good a thousand
times over.
Not less than twenty women were
Included In Mr. Jones' list, nnd when
he could secure no more clients ln the
town ho worked the surrounding country. Not a farmer or a farmer's hired
mnn turned him down. It happened ln
several cases that both the farmer and
his man took commissions and were
Instructed to watch ench other.
When Mr. Jones departed he left
more than a hundred detectives behind
him to watch for the coming of the
crime wave. They were to make reports to the home office whenever they
struck a clew. Not on their life or lives
were tbey to give nway the fact that
they were working for the agency or
keeping their eyes peeled. Craft, cunning and silence must bo tho order of
the day.
During the next two months llrlgg*
vllle had an uncomfortable time of lt.
Every one had a feeling that he was
under espionage, and his feeling was
right There was prowling about by
dny and by night Men and women sitting ln tbelr church pews of n Sunday
glared around In a suspicious manner
and forgot all about the sermon. Boys
nnd girls of tender years found themselves shadowed nnd went home to tell
fathers nnd mothers who were shadowing some one else.
It was nt n church social thnt the
grand expose occurred. Mrs. Bascomb
brought It about by charging the cross
eyed cooper with mailing a letter ai
midnight. This was In revenge for his
hogging down more thnn his share of
the ice cream. In five minutes It came
out that there were about forly detectives present and that each ono had
been spying on the others, nnd then a
free-for-all scrap occurred, and the police made several arrests. This brought
out the whole plot and laid bare tho
character of the man who arrived, nnd
there wns weeping and walling and
gnashing of teeth.
Tbnt was ten yenrs ngo, but tho detectives of Brlggsvllle have never forgiven each otlier. The crime wave has
not arrived, but they glare and shako
their fists nt each other. And In some
locality the man who arrived Is arriving again aud repeating his performance.

I must tell here of a woman who has
for a long time tried to get my butter,
but whom I was uuablo to supply. She
wns bound to get lt nnd adopted a novel way for lt. A regular customer, a
friend of the woman above mentioned,
one day asked me to let her have two
pounds a week more than her usual
supply. I could hardly spare It, but, as
she is such a good customer, by scrimping a little at home for a short time, I
made out to give her the extra. A
few weeks later, on delivering the butter, she said: "After this you might ns
well take this extra over to Mrs. Knox,
for it Is she I have been getting lt for.
You know Bhe tried for so long to get

Old Time At-rmir.
The old time actor bad peculiar and
primitive views as to elocution and its
uses. I remember a certain old friend
of mine who, when he recited the opening speech In "Richard III." and arrived
at the line, "In the deep bosom of the
ocean burled," suggested the deep bosom of the ocean by sending his volce
lnto his boots. Yet these were fine
actors, to whom certain young gentlemen who never saw them constantly
refer. The methods of tbe stage have
completely changed nnd with them the
tastes of the people. The probability
ls that some of the old actors of only
a few years ngo would excite much
merriment In their delineation of tragedy. A very great tragedian of a past
generation wns wont ln the tent scene
In "Richard III." to hold a piece of
soap ln his mouth, so that after tbe appearance ot the ghosts, the lather and
froth might dribble down his chin, and

On* Reaaon For a Clean Barn.
By forcing the stream of warm milk
Into tlie pall considerable air Is carried
with It and forced with the Incoming
stream to tho bottom of the pall. The
result ls that n pall full of milk Is a
mixture of milk and uir. If tho stable
air Is dusty or contaminated with bad
odors, these objectionable features are
about as thoroughly mixed with the
milk as possible.
According to tlio Knnsns experiment
station, soy beans hnvo the quality of
producing softness In butter. Cottonseed meal has the opposite effect from
the soy bean meal—lt hardens butter.
With soy beans and cottonseed meal
available lt is therefore possible for the
prlvato dairyman to so regulate tho
ration of his cows that he can produce
butter of any desirable consistency.
Feed and Per Cent ot Fat.
Experiments show comparatively little Influence of feed In the percentage
of fat, says an exchange. The Vermont station, after flvo years' tests, concluded that cows on early pasture
make moro und richer milk thnn during the last months of their barn life.
Professor Henry says thnt tho milk
from pasture contains less wnter antl
thnt the higher fat content Is always
accompanied by higher percentage of
total solids. Ho stntes broadly that
succulent feeds have no deleterious effect upou tho composition of milk, but
ln many cases a beneficial Influence.
How to Feed  Alfalfa.
The cost of producing milk nnd butter can bo greatly reduced by replacing part of tho concentrates In the
dally ration of the cow, with sonio
roughness rich In protein, such as alfalfa or cowpea hoy.
In substituting nlfulfa hny for wheat
bran It will bo best In practice to allow one and one-half pounds of alfnlfa
to each pound of wheat bran, nnd If
tho alfalfa is fed ln n finely chopped
condition tlie results will prove more
satisfactory.—West Virginia Experiment Station.

No efforts nro made to secure large
milk yield during the years of growth
In hclferB, but rather to develop u habit

A grain ration ranging from fopr to six
pounds dully will suffice for tlio first
year of lactation. With each succeeding year a pound or two may bo ndded
to tho dally rntlo .. This secures good
growth, together with normal development ot milk functions.

The most colossal stamp forgery on
record entailed the successful swindling of collectors throughout Europe
in 18S9. Oue day the French pnpers
announced that King Marie I. of Se-
dang, an island in the vicinity of China, was coming to Paris, As it happened, this self created monarch was
an ex-officer of the French navy, and
his appearance In Paris created considerable sensation. As soon as his
majesty had been duly "advertised"
sets of seven different postage stamps
marked "Sedang" and bearing three
half moons appeared, and so great was
the demand for them that in less than
a month they realized 1,000 francs
ench. Not until the king and his ministers had reaped fat fortunes* In this
manner was lt discovered that the
wholo thing was a hoax and the stamps
consequently worthless.

foreman.   "You will need it"
The visitor douued the uncanny mask
of glass, and the foreman led tbe way
to the cyanide uf potassium department
"We make 1,000 tons of cyanide a
year," he said. "A dose of five grains
is a fatal one. Thus our annual product ls enough to kill 2,500,000 people."
He opened a door, and a room filled
with writhing flumes, dense shadows,
sparks, smoke nnd weird figures lu
glass masks was revealed. In tbe center of tbe room, In a great caldron, 100
pounds of molten cyanide of potassium bubbled and seethed. The Humes
glinted strangely on the glass masks.
The foreman coughed.
"These fumes," he said, "are wholesome. The men, you see, are all robust. I have known weakly chaps,
working here among these strange
fumes, to pick up health and strength."
In another clean, cool room the finished cyanide was stored. It looked
like crystallized white sugar, good
enough to eat
"Good enough to eat," said the foreman gravely. "Well, we huve had
men cat It Four men committed suicide In that way.
"The fumes seem to create ln our
men a desire to taste the drug. They
fight this desire, most of them, successfully, but they all feel It, the same
as workers ln coffee plants want to
chew the coffee "beans, and some feel
lt so strongly ns to succumb."

There are seven "virgins' garlands"
still in existence In Mlnsterley church.
Salop, tbe first of tbem bearing tbe
date 1554 and the lust 1751.
They consist of silk ribbons and
paper, ball shaped, and are covered
with rosettes, the Inside center of the
cane or wire frame supporting a pair
of paper gloves. They represent a romantic custom of very ancient origin
and are sacred to the memory of girls
who while betrothed In their youth
lost their intended husbauds by death,
yet remained true to their first loves.
Each maiden designed her own garland, and at ber death this simple emblem was borne before her by the vll-
lago lasses, the whito gloves being nft-
erward added. After the obsequies
•Uiese garlands were suspended in the
village church ou a rod bearing at Its
extremity a heart lu tbe shape of an
escutcheon, upon which the Initials and
date were inscribed. These were originally fixed above the maiden's pew.
Some of the earliest and forgotten
garlands were composed of real flowers, but later the covered hoops described were substituted.
There ls a passing allusion to this
"simple memorial of the early dead"
In "Hamlet." "Yet here she ls allowed
her virgin crnnts," "crants" signifying
garlands.—London Graphic.
