Then he had Seen the blue car and known that it was Jack. He knew he must follow if he could not stop her now, and very evi- dently she would not listen. A cold sweat broke out on hls forehead as he followed the girl down the path. He dared not leave her, but he cursed the pride and caution that had kept him from taking her father into his confidence. The moment he had read the printed name, he had known that Jack Navarre was determined to get the girl and her money, but her attitude toward Sir George was so antagonistic that he had not quite known how to proceed. He knew he should force Roberts either to bring Jack to her father's attention or to listen while he told her what he knew of Jack Navarre. But how? "Is your friend coming to Join the party?" he asked. "No," Roberta said defiantly. "I'm going to Join him." Sir George frowned. "I wouldn't do that. Your father will miss you--and --and--it will look rather odd, don't you think, for a glrl to be constantly in the company of a man who never comes to the house?" Roberta swung around on him. She was furious, and she did not hesitate to show it. "So," she began In a low, deadly sweet voice, "after all, my fa- ther's secretary Is his spy." "Don't: It has an ugly sound and it isn't true. Your father's laid up and I'm trying to keep him from being worried. I'm--I'm trying to look after you--for Im." "How nice of you," Roberts mocked softly. "But you are In my way, Sir George Sandison, and I am waiting for you to move." He paid no attention. How lovely the little devil was, and what a voicel A man might listen to its music in- definitely. "If you would only listen I think you would see what I am driv- ing at. My dear girl, I would do a lot to save Robert MacBeth a single anxiety." "And you think?" "And I think you are causing him some," he said slowly. "In fact, I'm sure." Roberta stopped and stood still for a moment. Her impulse was to cry out: "Oh, you don't really mean that father is worrying about me now?" But her pride would not allow her to do it. She would go on with what she had started out to do. She knew now that she was wrong to go. In- deed, she had all along been forcing herself to believe that It meant little to her father, in order to keep her uneasy conscience from troubling, her. Almost she was on the point of turning back. She would tell Jack he "Why, He Hate8 Me!" The Amazed Girl Almost Shouted It. must come In and face father, even if it meant a quarrel. Even as she hesitated, Sir George unwittingly spoke the word too much. "Your father may not know the man you are motoring with, but I do, and what little I know is not to his credit." It was too much, and he looked too handsome and too confident. Roberta swung back to her former state of Indignation with this man. "I think you're mistaken." "I'm not," he said composedly. "You can see he Isn't particularly anxious to be recognized, but I know him.' Again every spark of consideration "He must have had hie reasons,  sha said with a sneer. "What particularly disgraceful episode In your career in- volved Jack?" Sir George laughed. "Don't mislead yourself. I have nothing to fear from Nicaragua Jack, but he has a great deal to dread from me." "Nicaragua Jack I You are crazy i Who is he?" "A handsome young man who calls himself a Spaniard, but it merely a hybrid South American. He makes hls living by tangoing with elderly ladies who can pay well for the privilege, be, He Went Sprawling on HIs Face on tie Grass Under the TreeL tween his gambling trips on the high seas. He's very young, but he's had a lot of experience. He slipped up bad. ly on the last trlp and was caught with the goods." The girl still stared at him, her face white. "I don't know what you are talking about. I know no one called Nicaragua Jack." "Oh, undoubtedly he woulcln't tell you about that name. But you do know some one called Jack, don't you3" "Oh yes--several." "Several Jacks. But only one who dances and is from Nicaragua. It a rotten bad case that he was in. valved in, and there was a girl in it." "He told me you would do that--' "What ?" "Tell your story as hls." "What do you mean?" Boberta drew back slowly away from him. "You understand me per- fectly. You know what I'm talking about and I don't care to hear any more from you." In that moment she had slipped around Slr George and as he came after her she turned, thrust out her slender walking shoe and de- liberately tripped him up. He went sprawlnig on hls face on the grass under the trees. When he was p on his feet again, he heard a light laugh and he saw that already Roberta had gained the road above him and was waving to the blue car which was coming rapidly down the road. It was useless to go after her, and he might be mistaken in thinking this meeting between the girl and Jack of so much significance, but even as he thought this he caught sight of a bag set down in the shade of the sycamore. Why a bag, unless it meant she was going to leave the island and her father once and for all? With a quick exclamation, Sl George picked up the bag and went hurriedly back over the bridge. Ha meant to get a car and go after He could not let the girl 'go, now. This was probably her last chance-- and his. He mhst overtake her, and he hoped devoutly that the thought of her father might still make her willing to return. He went into the garage and, sur- prised at his own haste, took the first car that stood ready. Only when he had gone out on the road did he real- ize that it was Ray Browne's car that he had commandeered. Well, Bay would probably forgive him. It was now or never, if he was to stop Jack and the glrl. , He had seen from the garage that the glrl had come back to look for her bag. He had even laughed at the thought of how she would scowl when she found it gone. Well, he would go after her and bring her back by hook or crook to Robert MacBeth. Nicara- gua Jack wasn't the son-in-law for that stout fellow. for her father or anyone else was As he clattered over the bridge toe swallowed up In Boberta's desire to first drop of rain fell crash down upon this arrogant Scot. , (TO. BE CONTINUED.} Gates of Death Never Opened for These Two The prophet Elijah and Enoch nev- tar of fact Methuselah's father never er saw death, according to the Bible. died, according to the Biblical account. II Kings 2:11 says: "And It came to Genesis 5:25 simply says: "And Enoch pass, as they (Elijah and Ellha) still went on and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, which parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven." This is un- doubtedly a figm:ative way of stating that the prophet passed from earth by miraculous translation instead of through the gates of death. Likewise Enoch, the father of Methuselah, nev- er saw death, according to Hebrews 11:5. "By faith," that passage says, "Enoch was translated that he should not see death ; and he was not found, becauso God translated him: for be- fore his translation he had this tes- timony, that he pleased God." This ls the basis for the popular but mis- leading statement that Methuselah; the oldet man mentioned in the Bible, died before his father did.

The purpose of wealth is to benefit its owner; to cause to happen what he desires, and to pre- vent what he .does not desire to hap- pen. Often, however, wealth can work no benefit without entailing some oth- er cost. For instance, to own a house is to bring cost of maintenance.--Chl- cage Post. About Ourselves While it is illuminating to see how environment molds men, it is abso- lutely esser:tlal that men regard them- selves as .molders of theh" onvlm, meaf PURE BRED HENS ARE PROFITABLE Cost a Little More but Pay It All Back in Eggs. April Is a good time to make every effort possible to produce pure bred poultry instead of mongrels. If flocks of hens are kept on our farms that possess the colors of Joseph's coat, combined with nmnerous sizes and shapes, and producing a product that would take an expert to tell the shades and texture of the shell, then poultry profits will be slim. With small prof- its, our interest will lessen, and it takes interest to make us go after poultry in the righl way, in the opin- Ion of D. H. Hall, extension poultry husbandman, Clemson college, South Carolina. "Have you ever seen a farmer that was interested in a mongrel flock of chickens? If you have, you bave seen more than I have," says Mr. Hall. "As a rule, when the farm flock are mon- grels, the farmer himself will always tell you that they belong to the wife, but when pure bred poultry comes on the farm, tben this same farmer doesn't mind showing the visitors the poultry, and most of the time, will claim every one of them. "Pure bred poultry will also attract attention to the farm. 1 do not care now humble the home may be or how poor the farmer is himself, people will always stop to look at a flock of pure bred chickens. When other people are interested in the things you have, there is usually a sale for them at a good profit. "What bout the cost? Pure bred chickens may cost a little more, but they will pay back in eggs and meat more than mongrels ever can. Tile pure bred poultry producers in each county should get behind this move- ment and plan pure bred poultry on each farm." Right Number of Males Required in Hen Flock There is no absolute rule in regard to the number of males needed in a flock, but tbere are some general rec- ommendations that will prove helpful in deciding this question. For the Asiatic breeds one rooster is needed for six or eigh', hens. These birds are slower moving titan the American breeds." The American breeds, such as Plymouth Rocks, Rhode Island Reds and W.vandottbs, need one rooster for every ten or twelve hens. With Leg- horns and other Mediterranean breeds one rooster to fifteen or twenty hens is usually satisfactory. The activity of the males will make some difference in reghrd to the num- ber needed. In comparatively large flocks fewer males will be needed than where the rooster and hells are closely confined. It is better to have a few nmre males fit the beginning of the season than is needed so tbat there will be sufficient even thougll some of them may become disabled or die. If new males are added later in the sea- son they will usually start fighting and do more harm than good. A few ex- tra roosters early in the season is a more practical method of meeting the situation. Increasing Demand for Capons of Good Quality There is a steadily increasing de- mand for capons as the market be- comes appreciative of their superior quality for table purposes. Tbe question ts somethnes asked: "What is a capon?" The answer is: "An unsexed cockerel"--or a bird from which the reproductive organs have been removed before it has been fully developed or attains maturity. This operation has the effect of causing a more placid temperament to develop In the bird, and the flgbtlng instinct is lost as the result of the continuance of the infantile, undevel- oped sexual nature. After the oper- ation has been performed these birds grow rapidly; and their flesb retains the tender condition of young chickens up to the time when they are fully grown. Egg Hatchability Birds which have been producing large numbers of eggs throughout the winter are usually found to produce eggs late in the season with a lower fertility and hatchab ity. The expla- nation of this is timt the vitality of the birds has gone into egg produc- tion. The hatchahil ty of these eggs can be improved, however, by giving the flock all the direct sunlight they can get during the winter. Cod liver oil is also of some value, as are the good glass substitutes. Mating Geese The best results with the" h(avy breds of geese come from mating in trios or using not more than three geese with each gander. On duck farms, a mating of seven ducks to one drake usually gives good results. Gan- ders are usually :arger and courser than geese with larger heads and thicker necks nnd they have a more shrill call. The cry of the goose is rather harsh. The only sure way to determine lhe sex will be an examina- tion of the organs. Wit and EXPLAINED The uplift worker looked in on the prisoner in the death cell.
