THE AUACHE CRESCENT The Handsome Man by MARGARET TURNBULL not be allowed to leave her father&apos;s home today, alone. 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 evl. dently she would not listen. A cold sweat broke out on his 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 glrl and her money, but her attitude toward Sir George was so antagonistic that he had not quite known how to proceed. IFlluslxatlonsby He knew he should force Roberts ) IRWIN MYERS either to bring Jack to her father', -oDyrtgh;" by Margaret TurnbulL g attention or to listen while he told her ..... what he knew of Jack Navarre.

'How he feels about met Why, he to me!" The amazed girl almost uout-d it. "Shish! He says so with his lips h ybe.

"Hearts aren't made of glass it's true, my lass, but they do 4)reek. Not right away, maybe, not dropping down dead as they do in the ttorles, but nevertheless, they do go aff, and for nothing but dead love." Roberts, who seemed exasperated t}eYOnd all need at this conversation ;rveyed her aunt with unblinking es. "Well, next time you see one (lYing that way, chll me, so that I can coins and watch his death struggle." "I have," aid her aunt, "and you'll ao believe me." She left before Roberta could reply. .

Roberts gave Sir George a quick, keen look hat might mean almost Ythlng. 'Involuntarily he followed her down the steps. Since he had read that marriage license announce- aent he had followed her like a hound en the trail. He could not bring hlm- lelf to tell MacBeth and expose the glrl 0 anger and ridicule.

Your father will miss you--and andit will look rather odd, don't you think, for a girl 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 him." "How nice of you," Roberta mocked softly. "But you are in my way, Sir George Sandison, and I am waiting for to move." He paid no attention. How lovely the little devil was, and what a voiceI A man might listen to its music ln- definitely. "If you would only listen I think you would see what I am driv- ing at. My :lear 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 fleck he / "Why, He Hates Mel  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. Roberts 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 for her father or anyone else was swallowed up in Roberta's desire to crash down upon this arrogant Scot. "He must have had his reasons,'* she 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! You are crazy! Who is he?" "A handsome young man who calls himself a Spaniard, but it merely a hybrid South American. He makes his living by tangoing with elderly ladle who can pay well for the privilege, be /1..

He slipped up bad- ly on the last trip and was caught with tile 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 wouldn't tell you about that name. But you do know some one called Jack, don't you?" "Oh yes--severaL" "Several Jacks. But only one who dances and is from Nicaragua. It was a rotten bad case that he was In. volved in, and there was a glrl In It." "He told me you would do that--' "What ?" "Tell your story as his." "What do you mean?' Roberts 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 Sir 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 his face on the grass under the trees. When he was up 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 tie caught sight of a bag set down in the shade of the sycamore. Why a bag, unless it meant she wa going to leave the island and her father once and for all? With a quick exclamation, Sir George "Picked up the bag and went hurriedly back over the bridge. He meant to get a car and go after her, He could not let the. girl go, now. This was probably her last ehance-- nnd his. He must 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, Ray would probably forgive him. It was now or never, If he was to stop Jack and the girl. He had seen from the garage that the girl 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. As he clattered over the bridge the first drop of raln fell. (TO BE CONTINUED.) Gates of Death Never Opened for These Two The prophet Elijah and Enoch nev- er saw" death, according to the Bible. H Kings 2:11 says: "And it came to pass, as they (Elijah and Elisha) 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 figurative 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 ; andhe was not found, because 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 oldest man mentioned in the Bible, died before hie father did. Aa a mat- ter of fact Methuselah's father never died, according to the Biblical account. Genesis 5:25 simply says : "And Enoch walked with God : and he was not ; for God took him."Pathfinder Magazine. Costs of Wealth Opposed to the benefits of wealth are its costs. 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 ath- er cost. For instance, to own a house is to bring cost of maintenance.Chl- cage Post.

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 tilat )ossess the colors of Joseph's coat, combined with numerous sizes aud 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 right way, in the opin- ion of D. H. Hall, extension poultry hushandman, Clemson college, South Carolhm. "Have you ever seen a farmer that was interested in a mongrel flock of chickens? if you have, you have seen more than I have," says Mr. Hall. "As a rule, when the farm flock are men. grels, the farmer himself will always tell you that they belong to the wife, but when pure bred poultry comes on the farm, then 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. I do not care how humble the home may be or how poor the farmer is t.lmself, people will always stop to look at a flock of pure brel chickens. When other people are interested in the things you have, there Is hsually a sale for tbem at a good profit. "'What about the cost? Pure bred chickens may cost a little more, but they will pay back tn eggs and meat more than mongrels ever can. The 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 there are some general rec- ommendations that will prove helpful in deciding this question. For the Asiatic breeds one rooster is needed for six or sigh , hens. These birds are slower moving allan abe American breeds. The American breeds, such as Plymouth Rocks, Rhode Island Reds and Wyandotte, need one rooster for every ten or twelve hens. Wltb 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 regard to the num- ber needed. In comparatively large flocks fewer males will he needed than where the rooster and hens are closely confined. It is better to have a few more males at tbe beginning of the season than is needed so that there will be sufficient even though some of them may become disabled or dte. 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. The question Is sometimes 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 tile bird, and the fighting 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 flesh retains the tender condition of young chickens tip 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 tlatchability. The expla- nation of this is that the vitality of the birds has gone into egg preduc- tion. The hatchabillty of these eggs can be improved, however, by giving the flock all the direct sunlight they can get during the winter. Cod liver oll is also of some value, as are the good glass substitutes. Mating Geese Tile best results with the h(avy i)reds 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 larger and coarser than geese with larger heads and thlcker necks and they have a more :hrill call. The cry of the goose is rather harsh. The only sure way to determine the sex will be an examina- tion of the organs. Wit and EXPLAINED The uplift worker looked in on the prisoner tn the death cell.
