With the later apples  the seeds colored before the fruit was  mature. Mcintosh Reds were the only  apples where the seed test was reliable.  With Delicious the apple was immature  when the flesh was a green color, but  was mature when the flesh turned white.  BOmBweBB  Stanley Hepher was a business visitor  at Creston, Monday.  Nels.

This Alberta campaign has been unusually interesting, not only on account of the number  and variety of political groups which havc placed candidates ia the field,  Shark   Catching   Is   Money   Maker  According To Captain .  Up from the Philippines to New  York came Capt. Jean M. Ellerich  with a message for housewives In  search of a new table delicacy and  for ambitious young men seeking a  job with a future.  "Shark meat," said the captain, "is  a dish front heaven." The shark  catching business," he added, "is a  fast growing enterprise and one  young man might well consider for  their life's work."  The captain, who has sharked all  around the globe, apparently never  heard of steaks from Texas rattlesnakes, but he would have you understand shark meat has become a  very popular dish. Why they're serving filet do sole from sharks to the  but because a plan or system of finance and economics entirely new to Canada, namely Social Credit, has been urged for adoption and a trial. As a  result the attention of all Canada, and even in other countries, was focused  on Alberta.  By this time, too, Canadians will be ia tne throes of a Dominion general  election which also presents a situation that is new in the political history  of Canada. The present contest will not he confined to the two traditional  parties. Liberal and Conservative, because since the election of five years  ago another two political parties have come into being and are contending  for the favor of the voters in support of policies and programmes which  they believe are necessary to solve the problems which, have arisen in this  rapidly changing -world.  So, in scores of constituencies, instead of making a clear-cut decision  as between two aspiring candidates for Parliamentary honors, and between  two distinct lines of policy as represented by Conservatism and Liberalism,  the voters will have to make up their minds as between three, four, and  possibly even a larger number of candidates presenting-differing programmes.  The situation is one that undoubtedly throws a greater responsibility  upon the individual voter for at least one reason, if not for others. The  object of Parliamentary elections under the British system of democratic  responsible government is two-fold., and it is vitally important that both be  kept in mind, and due weight and consideration given to them by the voter  as he or she proceeds to mark a ballot.  In the first place, the voter is making choice of a personal representative in the House of Commons, the person whom he or she considers best  qualified to present his or her views, best qualified to represent that particular constituency, best qualified to represent the views and interests of  the Province of which such constituency forms a part, and best qualified to  deal with those larger questions of national, even world, policy in the statesmanlike handling of which the welfare of all Provinces, constituencies and  individuals is involved.  ���������- ��������� ���������A.       ^.,_^_1. ,���������_..,_      ^.tmrn^mmf. ^I.U^I.  sometimes undeS* another name.  By virtue of the Increasing popularity, the business iteslf has grown  by leaps and bounds, he said, and  even during the depression it held its  own along with the red-ink manufacturers and the pee wee golf courses.  Like troubles, there apparently is  no end to the sharks. Although a  million are taken every year, there  are just as many to-day; in fact 250  varieties.  Capt. Ellerich is here to learn the  different varieties from aquarium  officials and survey market possibilities.  In the Philippines he first learned  how thoughtless were the natives in  throwing away all of the shark, except the fins, which they used for  soup.  To-day the skins are used for  leather, while the meat in addition  to being a palatable food for human  consumption, may be used for stock  feed and fertilizer.  Several additional products are obtained from the glands, and in distant parts of the world the teeth are  used for money. In the far interior  of Asia, said Capt. Ellerich,   a   well  polished shark tooth -will win a bride  But the selection of such individual representative is not all that is de-   r _ would fail  cided by a voter when marking a ballot. There is another, possibly an  even greater issue at stake. The basic object of an election is to set up the  governing body of the nation; in other words, to create a Government to  the executive members of which is entrusted the heavy responsibility of  formulating policies and administering the laws and the national business of  the Dominion. It is not merely a debating or consulting body that is being  chosen, but the Government of the country.  The biggest business enterprise in Canada is. Canada itself. If that  business is mismanaged, if it is conducted along wrong lines of policy, then  each and every other business in Canada, and every individual in Canada,  stands to suffer loss. Stated another way, individual voters are the shareholders in the largest and most important of all business enterprises���������Canada itself. In a general election they are meeting as shareholders to choose  a board of directors���������the House of Commons. From, the 245 members thus  chosen, an executive or board of management is selected, namely, the cabinet of ministers chosen by the president of the whole corporation, the  Prime Minister, and responsible to him and to the House of Commons.  If in the exercise of their individual rights the voters choose various  groups of members having opposing views as to how the business of tho  country should be conducted, and the nature of the policies that should be  followed, and as a result no one group commands a majority over all other  groups, and consequently no group is in a position to undertake the responsibility of attempting to govern the country, then government becomes practically impossible, a deadlock ensues, the business of the country is neglected or bedevilled because no definite course of action can be decided upon  and a straight course steered. The proper conduct of government and national business is impossible and the whole country and every interest suffers.  Consequently, it is necessary for the individual voter in exercising tho  best judgment possible In making selection of a personal representative in  the House of Commons to give consideration, not alone to the qualifications  of such possible representative, but also to the personnel, leadership and  policies of the group to which he belongs and supports, fate must decide,  too, whether such group has within itself the necessary numbers, power  and ability to establish a strong Government and givo to Canada that sound  and efficient administration which the welfare of all citizens demands shall  be given.  Admittedly, Canada is a hard country to govern. With a comparatively  small population, scattered thinly across half a continent, constituted of  people of many racial origins, different languages, and various beliefs, several Provinces mainly rural in occupation, but tho two central and by far  tho most populous Provinces highly industrialized, tho problem of popular  democratic government is no easy ono to solve. Yot it must bo solved if  all are not to suffer.  Such Is tho situation and some of the more vital considerations which  tho, voters of Canada must seriously weigh during tho next fow wooks, and  Anally must register their judgment upon at tho ballot boxes.  Willing To Take Risk  Man Signs Up For Test In Freezing  Experiment  Stephen Simkhovitch, 34, a strapping fellow, writer and scenarist,  signed a contract at Hollywood, Cal.,  in which he agreed to be frozen solid  and possibly revived in the interests  of medical science.  Dr. Ralph S. Willard, young Russian-born chemist, who said he has  been freezing and reviving guinea  pigs, rabbits and monkeys over a six-  year period and claims that tuberculosis, at least, can be overcome  through this treatment, agreed to  conduct the human experiment.  Simkhovitch said he was prompted  by a desire to "do something for  humanity for a change," and to determine "if there is life after death."  He said he was a son of V. C.  Simkhovitch, professor of economic  history at Columbia University, and  Mrs. Mary K. Simkhovitch, head of  Greenwich House in New York, widely known student of sociology.

Built at a total cost of $2,385,000  and paid for by the Italian Government under the.; provisions of the  "Lateran treaty of **f-*B*29, the railroad  was completed a^jyeaar ago. Since  then the 2,615-foot road has remained idle.       -     .Xx  There is a gorgeous station that  would do honorY-to a modern city of  50,000 souls, but'it is empty. There  are tracks that have not felt the  hum. of wheels since a locomotive  made a trial trip into Vatican city  last year. The tunnel, dug into Vatican hill and built to facilitate switching without taking up too much valuable space, has its gaping mouth  wide open, but never swallows any  thing.  The railroad, in proportion to ita  length, is the most costly in the  world. Including the station, tunnel  and bridge, the cost was $913 a  foot. A railroad linking New York  to San Francisco at the same prico  would run to about $16,000,000,000,  not including the rolling stock.  Yet tho Pope is not giving any indication of ever using it.

FEDERAL ELECTION  BATE HAS BEEN  SET FOR OCT. 14  Ottawa.���������After effecting a partial  reconstruction of his cabinet, involving the swearing in of four mfh-  isters, Prime Minister R. B. Bennett  secured dissolution of the 17th parliament since confederation. He announced A general election would be  held October 14. Writs will be returnable on Saturday, November 9.  The Earl of Bessborough, gov-  nor-general of Canada, made a  special tr.'p to the capital from Quebec where he Is in summer residence,  signed the dissolution order and numerous other orders-in-council, and  left again for Quebec.  Chosen to sill gaps in the cabinet  ranks created by appointments^ and  *. retirements, the new ministers are:  R. G. Geary, Toronto, became minister of justice, succeeding Hon.  Hugh Guthrie, who was appointed  chairman of the board, of railway  commissioners. ������-���������  J. E. Lawson, Toronto, became  minister of national revenue, succeeding Hon. R. C. Matthews, who is  leaving public life.  William   Ernst,    Lunenburg,   N.S.4  ~ was appointed minister of fisheries,  a post which has   been   vacant   for  some time.  Samuel Gobeil, Compton, Quebec,  was made a minister without portfolio.  With the appointments announced,  party standing in the House of Commons at dissolution, with vacancies,  was as follows: Conervatives, 113;  Liberal, 88; Liberal-Progressives,  three; Progressives, two; United  Farmers of Alberta, nine; Labor,  one; Independents, two and vacancies,  24.  It was necessary for the government to pass an order-in-councll  rescinding that passed some months  ago fixing October 14 as Thanksgiving day and changing the national holiday to October. 24. Originally  it had been planned to hold the elections on September 30. Mr. Bennett  said, but tn order to complete the  necessary preliminaries, it was then  decided to delay polling until October  7.  Immediately the latter date was  publicly discussed it was brought to  the attention of the government that  the new* selection was the day of  atonement, a religious holiday for  those of the Jewish faith. To have  polling on that date would have had  the effect, Mr. Bennett said, of disfranchising a large number of electors.  Since the statute requires that  general elections must be held on  Monday, It was then necessary to  select October 14. With respect to  earlier dates which had been considered Mr. Bennett said it had been  represented to the government that  between September 15 and 20 large  numbers of electors would be busily  engaged in harvest operations.  Further ministerial changes awaiting completion Involve the portfolios  of marine,'post office and finance.  It  was understood  that J. C H.

Maurice    Dupre;     solicitor-**  '-."'  general, is expected to.."become postmaster-general,    and   his   Successor  will probably be a Montreal lawyer,  whose name has not been divulged.  Thc portfolio of finance may not be  filled before tho election.   Hon. E. N.  Rhodes, who has been   minister   of  finance since 1932, and who was recently appointed to tho senate, will  remain In office   for   some   tlmo to  complete Important refunding operations ho has   in   hand, Mr. Bennett  said.  Islands Under Martial Law  'tea    tr-  r  Blockadp In Force On Italian Possessions In Aegean, Sea  London.���������A Reuter's News Agency  despatch from Athens says tho ItaJ-  ian-owned Dodecanese islands in the  Aegean sea have been, placed under  martial law with a severe blockade  in force. The island of Leros has  been converted into a fortress.  Visitors are not allowed to disembark at Leros, but are forced to  go to Rhodes where all are subjected  to a close scrutiny. Private houses  on the islands have been requisitioned  to care for the sick and -grounded.  All motor vessels also have been requisitioned.  The 13 islands of the Dodecanese  are in the Aegean sea off the coast  of Asia Minor. The islands are  Rhodes, Cos, Kalymmos, Leros,  Nisyroi, Telbs, Syme, Khalke, As-  typalaia, Karpathos, Kasos, Patmos  and Lispos.  Formerly the possession of Turkey, the islands were occupied by  Italy during Its war witji Turkey in  1909. It evacuated them by terms  of the first treaty of Lausanne in  1912. The secret treaty of London of  1915, which secured Italy's entrance  into \ the World War gave Italy  sovereignty over the islands.  Sovereignty was repeatedly disputed until, in 1920, the treaty of  Sevres gave Italy full control.   .

Water Development  Farmers    Of    Drouth   Areas    Show  Great Interest In Plan  Ottawa.���������"Farmers and ranchers  throughout the drouth area of the  prairie provinces are showing keen  interest in the water development  committee which has been organized  as part of the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Act," according to Hon. Robert Weir, minister of agriculture,  here. The minister has. returned  from a trip to Western Canada.  "The problem of supplying a more  adequate and dependable water supply to farmers is a vital one on many  farms and ranches;" said Mr. Weir.  "The demand for the assistance is  evident by the fact that since the  general program was first announced  only a few months ago over 4,600 individuals have made application,  either directly or ? through their  municipalities or organizations. Applications are at present pouring into  the office of the ?water development  committee at Swift Current at an  average rate of over 47 a day.  "Of the total applications received  to date, nearly 350 are from Manitoba, over 2,800 from Saskatchewan,  and somewhere around 1,400 from  Alberta.  "Field work was started little  more than three "weeks ago with" four  field engineers and their helpers.

May Restrict Credits  Italy's "Debt To British Exporters  Reaches Large Sum  London.���������British exporters hinted  at a move to refuse further credit-  to Italy because of delayed payments  believed caused by the expense of  military preparations.  It was reported in financial circles  that Italy's debt to British exporters  is now -������2,000,000 sterling (about  $10,000,000), and the creditors may  lead manufacturers in the curb of  further credit.  Many exporters, especially coal  shippers, have already shut down on  sales to Italy until past payments  are made, and this has shunted the  Italian demand to Germany.  A proposal that British liberalize  control of colonies, advanced by the  News Chronicle in an editorial, is regarded as the most daring suggestion  yet made in the Ethiopian crisis.  The Italian press "puts the question. fairly," the paper-says, in asking whether Britain is willing to join  in a redistribution of colonial empires.  "The dominions are independent  nations and can speak for themselves," says the editorial, "but what  is Britain going to do about the  empty spaces in her colonial empire;?

Wrigley Jr. Co.  of Canada Ltd. celebrates Its Silver  Jubilee���������twenty-five years of steady  progress and achievement. It was  just twenty-five years ago that Allan  Ross, President of Wrigley"s in Canada, and Vice-president of the Wrigley Company in the United States,  came to Toronto to found a business  that has grown to one of the largest  m 8-u.o coun8.ry. Allan Ross was then  only 22, but he had the ability to  work bard, a brilliant imagination,  and tbe courage to grasp an opportunity when perceived. To-day Mr.  Ross is still a young man at the head  of   a   business   that   stretches   from  coast to coast, a company whose*  name has entered every home, and  whose advertising has contacted  every Individual in the Dominion. The  history of Wrigley achievements in  Canada is*wett "known; it includes the  founding of the Marathon Swims at  the Canadian National Exhibition,  tbe invention of "radio amateur  night," the offer to buy western  wheat with all gum-dollars received,  the establishment of unemployment  hostels, and hundreds of other eontri-  but'ons to the people.  Mr. Ross says, "Without capable  helpers, no business can succeed." He  has followed that principle and has  surrounded himself with unusually  capable men.    Highly efiScient team  work, possible only with the highest  type helpers, has enabled Mr. Rods to  build the Wrigley Company from a  business whose yearly output would  scarcely fill a room 10 x 10 x 10 feet,  to a dally production of tons upon  tons. Wrigley's gum is sold to the  public through 75,000 retailers���������three  out of every five retailers in the "Dominion.  "There is only one way," says Mr.  Ross, "to make progress; it is to  make It slowly. So far as I know  there is only one way to develop oneself into valuable executive material.  It is: start to learn by actual experience^���������which it will take years to  get���������the fundamentals of whatever  srame you tackle."     ,  Little Journeys In Science  Has Uncanny Powers  WOOD FLOUR  (By Gordon H. Guest, M.A.)  Products of the forest have always been of great use to man but  in recent years science has discovered many new uses for wood, in the  torm of a very fine powder, known  as wood flour,  j The linoleum industry has been a  large consumer of wood flour.

England's Letter Post System  Was   Started   SOO   Years   Ago   By  Charles First  There was a letter post system in  England 300 years ago and the proof  of it is a document now being  specially exhibited at the British  Museum.  It Is a proclamation issued by  Charles I. to one Thomas Wither  Ings, authorizing him to "settle a  running post" between London and  the principal towns in the most important countries.  This document states Witherlngs  Is to provide messengers to rido between London and the towns set  forth, who "must return "within five  days." They are to collect letters  left at post-houses along the various  routes, and to "take them, aa near  as possible they can" to their destination.  It was to cost twopence to send  a letter under 80 miles, fourpence  between 80 and 140 miles, and five-  pence over 140 miles," whllo thc  charge to Scotland was elghtpence.

Dr. Nandor Podor, honorary research ofllcer of the Institute, said he had seen La jos Pap  produce 32 live beetles from the air  at a meeting In Budapest. "He has  to be in a complete trance to do it.  He produces the beetles by snatching  at the air. Every precaution was  taken to see that there was not the  slightest possibility of the exhibit  being a fake."  glycerine, which is the explosive ma  terial in dynamite, is greatly reduced  when diluted with some powdered  substance such as wood flour.  The phenol resins, when used with  wood flour as a filler, may be moulded into many  useful   and   every-day  articles.     These   include   such   products as telephone, radio and automobile   parts   and   electrical   equipment.    Dr.  Leo  Baekeland was the  scientist who did a great deal of the  earlier work which led to this almost  standard use of wood flour with the  phenol resins.    For this purpose, the  finest grades  of wood flour are  required.    The wood flour, after being*  thoroughly   mixed   with   the^ resin,  colouring    matter    and    other    substances,   produces   a   plastic   mass.  When this material has been dried it  is  ground   to   a   fine   powder   and  moulded   under   pressure   and   heat.  Wood flour is used with many different binding materials to produce picture-frames, bowling balls, furniture  parts, records and dolls.  Among the various uses of wood  flour not mentioned ln detail might  be included composition flooring, drying and polishing aluminum utensils  and metal products, fur cleaning, and  in hand soaps.  Various specialties, such as spools,  buttons, wheels, trays, and more recently, an insulating brick, are being  made from wood flour.  Scientists     Hope      For      Discovery  Through  Treating  Common Salt  Two scientists carried two bags of  common table salt to the top of  Mount Evans in the hope of making  a discovery which may result in the  replacement of costly radium in  many medical treatments.  The scientists, Dr. J. C. Stearns,  Denver University, and Dr. J. K.  Froman, of McGill University, hope  to induce radio-activity into the salt.

One of the members of tho  early Christian Church of Jerusalem,  was a man named Barnabas, whose  family had been natives of the island  of Cyprus. In those days he who had  gave to those who had hot, without  grudging, as Aristides wrote *to the  Emperor Hadrian. Barnabas was a.  very generous man. When he sold.  a field, he brought the whole sum and  gave it to the apostles to spend for  the poor.  A Broadminded Man, Acts 11*19-  24. Many who were driven out of*  Jerusalem because of the persecution, at the time of Stephen's death,  (Act3 8) went northward beyond.  Judea and Samaria into Phoenicia,  the province in which Tyre and Sidon-  Were located, and still farther to  Antioch, the capital of Syria, the  city which Paul later made his headquarters. These men preached only*  to the Jews. Others, however, men  of Cyprus and Cyrene, Grecian Jews-  who had lived in Greek areas and  because of their cosmopolitan experience entertained fewer scruples about-  mixing with Gentiles than did the  Jews of Palestine, when they came-  to Antioch preached to the Greeks,  or Gentiles, also. God was with them,  in this new movement, and great  numbers of the Greeks believed their  message.  The Church at Jerusalem was  alarmed over this new departure of  preaching to the Gentiles, and they  sent Barnabas ot Antioch to investigate the situation. Now Barnabas-  was a good man, full of the Holy  Spirit and of faith.  "It begins with   the   surface���������He  was a good man;  and then cuts a.  little deeper���������full of the Holy Spirit:  that is why he was a good man.   And.  then   it   goes   deeper   still���������and    of  faith; and that is why he was full of  the Holy Spirit.    One has sometimes-  seen anatomical   models,   where   one  lifts off the top piece that represents,  skin and   flesh,   and   lays  bare   the  deeper-seated orgians. Luke's analysis-  here is 7somewnat like these.   It gives  a vertical section, that discloses the  strata���������not only the grass,  ahd the  'light  of laughing   flowers'    on   the  surface,    but    the    underlying    soils  which   nourish    these."    (Alexander  Maclaren).  Being a good man, Barnabas rejoiced when he saw the genuineness  of the Christian character of the-  Gentiles. A writer thinks that the  tribute to Barnabas in verse 24 is  recorded as if nothing short of such  characteristics could have sufficiently  emancipated him from the narrowness that would have refused to discern the good in such a revolutionary proceeding.

After much consideration Cousin  ���������Columbine's offer Is accepted, and  Nancy and Jack arrive at Pine Ridge.  They are met at the railway station  by Columbine Nelson, who in turn  Introduces Mark and Matthew  Adams, two neighbors of Aunt Columbine, and the party set out for  Pine Ridge, which village causes dismay to both Nancy and Jack because  of its dilapidated appearance and  general look of poverty. Nancy and  Jack are shown to the rooms they  are to occupy, and both the young  people consider the- furniture and  decorations hateful and, contrasting  the present quarters with their luxurious home in Boston, wonder if  they can endure the change for any  length of time. Aunt Columbine  tells why she wrote** the Tletter to  . them, and relates some of her early  experiences at Pine Ridge of hostile  Indians and forest -fires, of her  father's hunt for gold, and of her  mother's splendid spirit, but frail  body, which could not endure the  strain of pioneer life.  Nancy set out one afternoon to  climb to the top of a hill so as to  obtain a view of the surrounding  landscape and misses the path Aurora  Tubbs had told her to follow. A truck  comes along the road, driven by Matthew Adams, and she asks him which  way to go. They ascend the - hill,  look around, and then go on to  COusin Columbine's. There Mark  Adam tells Nancy that his brother  Luke has broken his leg, and that  Jack Nelson has been hired to help  out while Luke's leg gets better. With  Jack away, Nancy finds that she is  lonesome, and having no books to  read, the idea of starting a public  library at Pine Ridge seems a good  one, and Nance writes home to get  her parents to send all the books they  could spare and all they could induce  others to let them have.  Now Go On With Tho Story  [and was to spend her vacation at the  ranch, approve of silk stockings as  a gift? And what size must he get?  What color ? Darned if he - knew!  And -would Nancy look at a luncheon  set he wanted for his mother, and  see if it were really any good?  So Nance stored her parcels in the  old car, and fared forth again, this  time with Matthew. But it was all  fun, and after weeks of comparative  solitude in Pine Ridge, tho Christmas crowds seemed thrilling. Their  errands accomplished, Matt took her  to a place where they had hot chocolate and delicious sandwiches; and on  the way home he drove with exceed  Ing slowness, even after the dangerous pass was left behind.  The stars were out when they  bumped the railroad track and start**  ed up the straggling familiar street.  Dusk hid its shabbinesa, and Nance  turned as she always did, for that  matchless view of the white-crested  Peak*.  "Well, we're home," she said, and  added, laughing: "That sounds exactly like Aurora, doesn't it? I've had  a great time, Matt, and I do appro  elate your letting me tag along.

They -were approaching the  Nelson "mansion" now. "There's a  light in the parlor! Is the president,  or governor or some one calling on  Cousin Columbine? Why? (as they  turned in the gate), "there are lights  everywhere! What can' be happen-  .ing?"  She looked up, at Matthew this  time.

Nancy was never to forget the  moments that followed. As Matthew  drew up before the house he blew  three sharp blasts on the automobile  horn, and said: "Don't bother with  all those bundles, Nancy. I'll lug 'em  in in just a minute." Indeed, Nance  was so puzzled by tho amazing  illumination that she failed to see  that they wereV stopping at the seldom-used front dopr; and, still dazed,  but with Matt's hand on her elbow,  she was firmly propelled into what  Jack called "the sacred parlor."  Por a moment she just stood still,  thinking the room was full of people  until she realized that it wasn't a  crowd at all, only' the parlor, beautifully garlanded with Christmas  greens, looked different. A second  glance disclosed the company:  Cousin Columbine in her scarlet  middy and laced boots; a little woman with soft brown hair, and eyes  shining with merriment, who must  be "Eve Adam." By her side stood  the tall, lean sunburned man who  was her husband, looking, it seemed  to Nancy, very little older than his  sons. Then came Juanita Tubbs���������  Juanita in a sleeveless gown of such  dazzling, variegated colors that  Nance almost blinked when she looked straight at it and was thankful  that Mary Taylor was wearing  white. Mark ("all dressed up in his  Sunday best," thought Nance) towered between Mary and a slender girl  In blue ("The cousin from Denver");  while Jack, spick and span ln his blue  serge suit, and another boy ("The  last of the Apostles, of course!")  stood just behind them; and as a  climax camo Aurora attired In a  gown of emerald taffeta with six  flounces on the skirt and the inevitable apron tied snugly around her  ample waistline.       y  No wonder Nancy stared! Sho  stared ao long that everybody shouted with laughter; and it was Cousin  Columbine who explained: "It's only  your debut, child. Don't look 00  dazed I"  "Your debut, staged in a different  sotting," smiled Mvo Adam, and coming forward kissed Nancy on tho  cheek, "Welcome to Pino Ridgo  society, my dear! I really think wo  gavo you a nurprlno."  "And If she don't run straight upstairs and put on that party dress I  took out of hor closet," spoko up  Aurora, "my company dinnor'll bo in  ruins. Matthew Adam, you'll find  your good clothes in Mina Colum-  bhiu'tt bedroom, ond don't bo alow aa  cold molansou, olthor."  "Did���������did you know   thin   all   tho  time ?������   cried  Matthew.  "S-I-I sort of suspected it," he con  fessed.. "I -meanr���������"   Y  "Oh; come on, Matt," broke in his  brother Mark impatiently. "Time  flies; and you've got. to beautify yourself in honor of bur debutante!" '���������'-..  ". .7 .And will you believe it,"  Nance wrote home next day, "when  I came down, there stood Matthew  Adam looking absolutely stunning in  a well-cut ^Tux! I almost passed out  at sight of him."     ?  Probably Matthe*-***- felt somewhat  the same at the same -moment, for  Nance herself, in orchid chiffon, and  silver-shod, was (according to Mark  Adam) "too easy to look at for any  feller's peace of mind."  "You'll have to seat her next to  Matthew, Miss Columbine," he said  ruefuly. "She makes the rest of ua  look like hick cowboys. I'd have  swiped that Tux myself, Matt, if it  had been two sizes bigger. It's the  only Tuxedo in Pine Ridge, Nancy���������  a relic of campus days which transforms my cowherd brother into a���������  a 'glorious Apollo,' as you can see  for yourself.    And���������" ���������.  -'Shut up!" commanded Matthew,  blushing, while his mother slipped a  protecting arm. through his, and  Aurora announced shrilly:  "Come on! Get seated while I dish  up the potato. Sakes alive, Nancy,  you look like those pictures in the  love magazines. And you too, Matthew Adam. That white shirt's awful becoming. Everything's ready  and all those pesky candles lighted.  Come on in!"  ���������T never saw a prettier table,"  wrote Nancy to her mother. "Even  that awful green-brown china was  inconspicuous, because it blent with  the green-bronze leaves of tho kin-  nikinnick with which Mrs. Adam had  decorated everything. ; It's the most  graceful vine, with red berries like  the partridge berries we have at  home. There was a big brass bowl  of it in the centre of the table, and  long sprays laid at intervals on the  white cloth���������a cloth bought in Denver in 1901, please understand, and  used only on state occasions!  "The terrible lamp was banished,  and four tall brass candlesticks held  red candles while a big red candle  stood at every place. Even Cousin  Columbine's scarlet middy seemed  made for the occasion. Sho looked  very distinguished at the head of the  table; and they put me at the foot  with 'Father Adam' on one side, and  Mark (desprte protests regarding his  apparel!)  on the other.  "And did we eat? As Jack remarked, Aurora had 'done her dam-  dest,' and the old-fashioned Christmas dinner was superb. Once it  struck me aa funny that Juanita  was among the guests while her  mother waited on us; but Cousin  Columbine says that Aurora would  never have recovered if her daughter had been left out. Mr. Adam  made place cards; and the mlnuto I  saw his beautiful lettering I knew  who was going to paint tho sign for  my Aladdin Library!. But to get  back to my debut.   ..."  The account of this party grow into tho longest letter that Nancy Nelson had ever written,   which   ended  with a request to forward it to Aunt  Judy, ������*. . . for I can never write  all thia again. I wonder what those  wild Spear girls will think of my  debut. Mother! Not much like what  we planned, was it? But believe me,  it was a grand party just the same."  It is probable that all those present agreed with the girl. When at  last they arose from the table and  sought the gaily-festooned parlor,  each one added his bit to the entertainment. There were charades; old-  time songs? with melodeon accompaniment (a melodeon brought from  Chicago in 1881, Miss Columbine assured them -proudly); as well aa  strictly modern "croonlngs" rendered  by Mark; while Matthew left Nance  breathless ? for the second time that  evening when, with the simple aid of  Juanita's tarn o' shanter and a plaid  scarf, he was* transformed into a very  creditable Harry Lauder,, and forgetting his shyness, sang "I Love a  Lassie" in a delightful baritono.  Not until then did Aurora remove  her apron.  "I'm going to recite 'Curfew Shall  Not   Ring  To-night',"   she   told   the  company. "I said that piece at a  church sociable when Tubbs was  courting me, and there wa'nt a dry  eye in the place when I got through."  This number brought such a deafening round of applause that the  good woman beamed with pleasure.  "It's your turn now, Miss Columbine," she said. "You tell us a  story about old times to calm us  down."  Cousin Columbine smiled as Matt  drew her chair in the centre of tho  group.  'Tm going to tell you about my  first Christmas tree," she began. "I  couldn't have been more than three  or four years old, and Mother and I  were alone as we ao often were in  those days when Father was off adventuring. We were expecting him  home, of course; but on Christmas  Eve when he did not come, Mother  went out and cut a tiny Christmas  tree herself, and set it up in the  corner of our one room.  "I realize,now that for months,  possibly longer, she had been saving  every bright scrap of ribbon, or  calico, or paper that came her way-  saving them to make a merry Christmas for her baby;  and after I was  TNT  A,.*.^ every community  ere records of individual  sets of tires* but Firestone  . have been proved for sue*  teen years ut tlie 500-mile  Indianapolis Speedway  Race.

"Well, no whistle came that night,  and at last, bitterly disappointed,  fearful for his safety as she always  was at any untoward delay, my  mother crept into the big bed and  dropped asleep. No doubt her pillow was wet with tears; but things  looked brighter in the morning. It  was a beautiful day. A flurry of  snow had fallen in the night. Every  bush and tree was white and frosted,  which made her think of Christmases  in old New England; and I, of course,  was twittering with excitement. She  could scarcely persuade me to eat  breakfast I was so eager to examine  every ornament and open the two  parcels tied to the topmost branch  of my small treo.  "At last sho pushed aside our soiled dishes. This morning they could  wait, for after all, Christmas comes  but once a year.    She drew a chair  her lap and put into my hands; one  of the gifts she had prepared so lovingly. You see, she had contrived  twin dolls out of homemade clothespins���������painted their faces very cleverly, and dressed them in scarlet flan-  let from an old petticoat, wrapping  j them separately so that I would have  moro to open."  - For a moment Miss Columbine sat  silent, as if thinking; then she went  on: "I do not, of course, remember  every detail of this story; but it was  told so often that the scene rises  before nae very clearly. I waa so  enthralled with my doll that I forgot  to be curious about the other package; and as I sat there on my  mother's knee, caressing this new  baby, something, possibly the sense  of being watched, drew her eyes  away from me for a moment, and at  what she saw her poor heart almost  stopped beating. For there was a  face at the window, peering In at  us���������tho face of an Indian!"  "My soul!" breathed Aurora in an  awed whisper; and as if not hearing  her. Miss Columbine continued:  "Perhaps you young folks can't  realize what that meant to a pioneer  woman alone in ber cabin save for  a little child. Instinctively her  glance rose to the rifle lying ready  for use on a shelf behind the stove.  then fell to the fir tree: that emblem,  of 'Peace on earth, goodwll to men';  and just as the door latch rattled  ominously, she came to a decision.
