"JwcTKrMM  Friday, July 18, 1913  CAMPING OUT  ' ,"Crr,<-.  .am  This   is   the   time   ol' the yearwhen  Nature's most insistent call goes out  to her errant but still loyal children  in tlie cities.  All lm.nr -.the call,; all  obey  it who can.   He  renders most  perfect obedience who camps out,, for  then    he   gets  nearest     to Nature's  heart.   To ccamp out on n moderate  and  sensible scale  is easy,   inexpensive,  and enjoyable if you know how  Given a congenial companion, ,a good  location   and  a    proper y   arranged  cami'i the man who does not  have    a  good t me ^s lacking in some essential gualityof the real man.   Here are  some useful hints for amateurs based  on the teaching of experience. In preparing your personal outfit use your  everyday knowledge as far as it wi,I  go;  then fall  back on  your  common  sense.   Take two complete suits     of  warm  comfortable,   durable  clothing.  You must have a raincoat and heavy  waterproof shoes.   Don't forget your  tooth brush; soap,' towels, and.little  things necessary "to your*comfort   a?  .   home      Make your personal out/it as  complete as possible,  but keep   ' it  within the limits of easy transportation and pack it so that it will he in  shape   for  rough   handling.     Almost  any tent so,d by a reputab.e dealer  ���������    will do. .You need two, blankets and  a rubber sheet for your bed    ' Have  your table and cooking utensils     of  ,  stout ware.   Patent stoves and bake  ovens .are a luxury not a necessity,  but there should 'he one large alcohol  .    lamp or small kerosene stove in the  party^ In" selecting  provisions'!keep  close to-the,staples.and ,pack every-  .   thing as if you ��������� expected to be shipwrecked every twenty-four hours.   A-  void all canned goods except concentrated soupf   Use bacon instead     of  lard  for  frying.   In  camp,   bacon  is  .civilization's best.gift to.man: there  fore have plenty of it:  .   Pitch, your  camp in an open space where     the  sun  shines ' freely.      Face  it  to the  east. If possible have the grounds to  ��������� slope from back to  front. Dig a  ditch at the back and'sides.        Pull  the canvass    taut,. and , see that it  reaches the ground   Thus shall     the  floods    descend, and   you keep , dry  within.   Nature has provided     your  bed close at hand.   The spring     are  slender boughs laid   with   the   curve  - up    The mattress is a thick layer of  fragrant cedar        With rubber sheet  and blankets here is a. couch for the  gods the feather bed of our. grandmothers or the hair mattress of the fur,  niture dealer is a joke beside it.   Air  your bedding every day in.the   sun,  and add to your springs as they flat-  tenout  froiii  use.   On  the camp  fire  hangs the fate of the camp. But  the camp fire is not one, hut two���������  tnc.'b'ig soaring one-at the evening  that you sit around, singing and\tell  ing stories and the little cooking fire  Any one can build the big fire. Here  isthe secret of the little one: Set  stones or green logs so that the frying pan will jwst.reasoh -across ever  the bed of coals between them. So  shall you get|no smake in your eyes  TcTitJiLHy camp shall' rise "and call the  cook blessed.   Go' to caiir-dc-termined  to have a ypod time.   Do your share  of tho work with   a   cheerful   hea.il.  Go to bed and'gel. up with, the Wild  things of  the, wohds.     So sii:;?l  you  fill your lungs' .with .fresh -air and also make your'.blood red again,     and  harden your flabby muscle's, and .eat  like a prize fighter, and" sleep like   a  little child.   For   these lire Nature's  rewards, to those   who seek her with  understanding.  THE   MARKET  nor burn the troutjto a cinder, nor  melt the handle from the coffee    pot  The  largo attendance at,  the market   Friday    morning   together   with  the large quantities of poultry, flowers and new vegetables, made it a record  one.   The prices  of.poultry  although   offered'  in     large   quantities'  didnot   drop.   Young   chickens      and  ducks   were   plenLiful     and   remained  at    the    same    price   as    lastweck.  Young pigs were also -seen.  In fish a good supply was to be  seen and met with a good demand,  while the prices remained stationary.  The only new'fish to appear was Lhe  skate.  Flowers especially -carnations and  cut roses, were, offered in abundance  at last week's prices.  Raspberries iwcre' another feature  of the market. -This is "the first  Lime this season that they have been  seen on Lhe local market and they  were offered at 81.75 a crate or 3  boxes for 25 cents.  These, berries are now taking the  [ place of strawberries of which-hone  were to lie seen on the market. The  season far strawberries is nearly over and one reason for the rather-  small crop of these berries this year-  is   the  recent  badweather.  Red cdrrants, although they are  not yet offered in large quantities,  are anotflier of the small summer  fruit to appear for the first time on  the market. Now potatoes are now  beginning to take a foremost place  on the market and ere sold at from  $1.75 to $2 a sack.' Meat was ob-1  be seen 'in fair quantities and remained- at last week's prices.

There  was no trace of the missing woman  anywhere outside the house, and from  Rplla. as she sat at the foot of the front  stairs with her apron over her. head, 1  learned In a monosyllable that nothing had been fouDd In the house. Margery was with. Miss Letitia, and, from  the excited conversation J knew she  was telling her-not-harrowing details,  but that. Miss Jane had disappeared  during tlie night.  ��������� The old lady was Inclined to scoff at  flrst. '  "Look in the fruit closet In the storeroom," I heard he." say. "She's let the  spring lock shut on her twice. She was  black io the face the-last' time we  found ber."'  "i did look; she's not there!" Margery  screamed at her.  - j  "Then she's out looking for stump  water to take that wart off her neck.  She said yesterday she was going for  some."  ��������� "But her clothes are all here," Margery persisted. "We think some one  must have got" in the bouse."  "If ail her clothes are there she's  been sleepwalking." Miss Letitia said  calmly. "We used to have to tie. her by  a cord around her ankle and fasten it  to the bedpost. When she tried to get  up the cord would pull and wake tier."  I sentfot Hunier that morning, and  be came at 3 o'clock. 1 took him  through the back entrance to avoid  Miss Letitia. 1_ think he had been  skeptical until 1 threw open the door  and showed him the upset chair, the  old lady's clothing and the blood  stained lace cap. lie took a crumpled  sheet of nole paper out of the waste  basket and looked at it, then he stuffed  lt in his pocket.  Before he left the room Hunter went  back and moved the picture that had  been disturbed over tbe mantel.   What  he saw  made  him  get a  chair and.  standing on it. take tbe picture from  Its    nail.    Thus   exposed,    the   wall  showed an opening about a foot square  and perhaps eighteen Inches deep.   A  metal door, opening in, was unfastened  and ajar, and Just Inside was a copy of  a recent seniimeutal hovel and a bottle of some sort of complexion cream.  In spite of myself I smiled: It was so  typical of the dear old lady, with the  heart of a girl and a skin that was losing Its roses.   Rut I here was something  else In the receptacle, something that  made Margery  Fleming draw In  her  breath sharply and made Hunter raise  his eyebrows a little and.glance at me  Tbe something was a scrap of unruled  white paper and on it the figures elev  en twenty-two:  Harry Wardrop came back from the  city at 4 o'clock, whlh Hunter was in  the midst of his investigation. 1 (old  him what had happened, and with this  The' Wall Showed an Opening About a  Foot Square.  new apprehension added to (he .shock  of the night before he looked as though  bis nerves were ready,to snap  Wardrop was a "man of perhaps  twenLv-seven. ������s mJI us L iiLUmiM''! noj  so heavy, with direct bine eyes and  fair hair, altogether a manly and pre  possessing sort of fellow.

"Here's a pE-ncil���������not  much of oue."  Hunter began I1I3 Interrogations.  "How old  was Miss Malfia'nd-MIss i hand-that "is  Jane.  I  mean?  "Sixty-fivp." from Margery.  *;She   hffl  .-ilways  seemed   rational'/  Not eccentric, or childish?" ���������  "Nol at all; tlie sanest woman i ever  knew."   This from Wardrop.  "Has she ever to your knowledge received any threatening letters?"  ���������Never in all her life," from both of  diem promptly.  "You heard sounds, you say, Miss  Fleming.   At what time?"  "About Ualf past l.or perhaps a few  minutes later The clock struck 2 while  I was stiil awake and nervous."  "This persou who was walking  through the attics here���������would you  say it was a Heavy persou���������a man, 1  mean?"  Margery stopped to" think.  "Yes." she said finally.

Mr.  Hunter, do you' think I would hurt a  naii'of. that.'old .'lady's head":    Do yon  think "1 came here last" night andlcIITed  her, or whatever It Is that has happened to her, and then went out and  tried to get In again through tho window?"  "Not necessarily," Hunter said, unruffled. , "It merely occurred to me  that we have, at least an hour of your  time last night while this thing, was  going on to account for. However,  we can speak of that later. I am practically certain .of one thlng-MissJIlaJfc...  Jand is nofdead "or was not dead when '������������������  6he was taken away from this house."  "Taken away!" Margery repeated.  "Then you think she was kidnaped?'!  "Well. It Is possible. You are certain  there are no closets or unused rooms  where If there had been a murder the  body could he concealed?"  "I never beard ot any," Margery said,  but 1 saw Wardrop's face change on  the   Instant.     He stood  frowning  at  the floor:  Margery was beginning to show the  effect of tbe long day's strain. . She  began to cry a little, and with an air  of proprietorship that 1 resented somehow Wardrop went over to ber. '  "You are going to lie down, Margery," he said, holding out his hand to  help her 'up. "Mrs. Mellon will come  over to Aunt Letitia, and you must get  some sleep."  "Sleep!" she said, with scorn, as he  helped her to her feet. "Sleep,when  things like this are occurring! Father  first and now dear old Aunt Jane!  Harry, do you know where my father  Is?"  He faced her as if he had known the  question must come and was prepared  for it.  "I know that.be is all right, Margery."  He has been���������out of town.

She drew a long, breath of relief.  When  they .'had  both gone ilunter  sat down on a trunk and drew.out a  cigar that looked like a bomb.  "The window,"  I suggested, and ho   ���������  went over to it    When he came back  he had a, rather peculiar expression.  "In the flrst place," be began, "wo  can take It for granted that unless she ���������  was crazy or sleepwalking sbo didn't  go out In her night clothes, and there's  uothing of hers missing. She wasn't  taken In a carriage, provided she was  taken at all.. There's not a mark- of  wheels*on that drive newer than a  week, and besides, you say you beard  nothing."        .-,'.  .  "Nothing." 1 said positively. ,  "Then, unless she went away In, a  balloon, where it, wouldn't matter  what she had on. she Is still around  the premises. It depends on bow badly she was hurt"  "Are you sure It was she who .was  hurt?"   I   asked.     "That   print  of  a  not Miss Jane's.*'  In reply Hunter led the way down,  the stairs to the place where the stain  on J:he stair rail stood out.  ugly and  distinct.    He put his own heavy hand.  on the rail just below It  "Suppose," he said, "suppose yon  grip 'something very hard, what happens to your hand?"  "It spreads." 1 acknowledged, seeing  what he meant  "Now look at that stain. Look at  tbe short fingers. Why. It's a child's  hand beside mine. The breadth la  from -pivssure. ft might he figured  oat this way. The Qngers. yon notice,  point down the stairs. In some way,  let us say, tbe burglar, for want of a  better name, gets Into the house, fltt  used a ladder resting against that  window by the chest of drawers."  "Ladder!" 1 exclaimed.  "Yes, there is a pruning ladder there, ,  Now. then, be comes down these stains,  and he has a definite object. He knows  -of something valuable In that cubby  bole over the mantel in Miss Jane's  room. How does he get in? The doo?

That kind of a lock is -  only a three minute delay or less.  Now, then, Miss Maitland was a light  sleeper. When she wakened she waq  too alarmed to scream. She tried to  get to the door and was Intercepted,  Finally she got out the way the Intruder got in and ran along the hall.  Every door was locked. In a frenzy  she ran up the attic stairs and was captured up there.   Which bears out Miss  targery's story of the footsteps back'  and forward. i  "He brings her down the stairs  again, * probably half dragging' her.j  Once she catches hold of the stair rail,  and holds desperately to it, leaving the  stain here." j  "But why did he bring her down?"
