PERK By ELIZABETH DE DOER (Copyright, 1910, McClure Newspaper Syn dicate.) Three of the famous four mit In their banner-hung den. Suddenly Ted Morse, cnptnln of the crow, rose, and dramatically pounding his tnnned list upon tho desk, said: "Look here, follows, wo'vo got to do something about Perk!" Slip Morgan punched tho white II on n.rod pillow nnd throw It nt Bill Mltton, trnck champion. Slip was Bliortstop on the Imsobnll toMm. "Come off of thnt, Morgan," the af flicted drawled, "Whnt'll wo do about Perk?" Tod took the floor. "This Is tho way things stand. We're graduating this year and I'm having the famous four spend tho summer with mo on Long Islnnd. AVe'II have n big time, but look nt Pork! He'll probably ship a young library home before lie comes. Thnt lad's tho bright est man In college j but boys, he's miss ing life." One hnnd was flourished In tho smoke-heavy air. "What girl would glvo a row of pins for n mnn who's nlwnys burled In books? They don't care If he graduates summa cum laude. What they want to know is, if he broko his ankle In footbnll 1 or won a cup In tennis. And the worst of It Is," tho speaker registered deep emotion, "Perk Is so very good looking 1" "Yes," Slip finshed, "a month's train ing would make him the biggest bug on the team. Dut no, he prefers to write books on electricity." Three long groans ! Bill spoke next. "Perk is a wonder, but Ted said It, he's missed life, and It's up to us to force It upon him. The question Is, how?" Inspiration soared Into tho room and Slip's inevitable hnnd leaped to catch It Tho game Is on. i Perk was lennlng over Miss Mny. When one Is six feet two and one's partner In Ave feet, one nnturnlly leans over. A becoming pink hnd flwept his face nnd a painful expres sion, thnt of absolute resignation, hid beneath It. Miss Mny spoke prettily. "Oh, Mr. Perkins, It must bo won derful to be famous In college." Perk wns afraid to contrndlct, but denied fame bravely. Miss May was determined. "You mustn't try to deny It," she fihook a pink forefinger nt him, "for Ted hns told us nil about you, nnd," Bhe looked sweetly up, "personally, I had much rather bo famous In sports than tho brightest man In college. I just love baseball, nnd they say you are so splendid. Perk gasped I This was Ted's work I Ted's and the other two. They hnd told all tho young ladles present thnt he was a college-fnmed athlete, and, try hard as ho could to deny It all, the girls had henped him with admir ing nttentlon. Perk snw tho object of his temporary hutj grinning ncross tho dance hall and would have given his summa cum laude to hit him. Thnt night words burned between tlie fnmous four. "Yes, they all bellevo it and they're going to keep on believing It," Ted quietly Informed his former roommnte. "It's just n llttlo lcsson tho college for cot, old mnn, nnd you owe your pres ent popularity to us." "Thanks," said Perk bitterly, "espe cially In tho enso of Snlly Byron," but the boys laughed and Perk reddened resigned. Tho next day Perk took Sally canoe ing. Things hnd progressed. They were already applying first nnmcs. "What a wonderfully steady stroke you have, Perk," Sally complimented. "I supposo you acquired thnt from practicing In thecrow." "I novcr " Perk began, but never ended. As tho dny went on ho suffered more, but ho learned. lie took n new interest in sports nnd they suited him eo perfectly. Ills books wero for gotten, not too much, but enough. And three of the fnmous four wagged their heads approvingly then jubilantly for Perk had fullen in lovo.' A Sunday evening wns being herald ed by n goldcn-purplo sunset nnd Perk had enticed It took very llttlo enticing Sally to tho shore. They sat quietly, Sally's small hand hidden In tho man's big one. With th6 last lingering rnys of tho setting sun, Perk turned to tho girl beside him. "Snlly," ho said quietly, studiedly. "I liavo something I want to toll you. I hnven't plnyed fair I've Hod." Tho girl's eyes widened but sho made no reply, lie went on: "Tho boys tried to piny a llttlo Joko on me, but they cnrrled It n bit far, nnd I didn't havo tho ncrvo to deny It. They said I was, a big nthleto In col lego and, well, I'm not I'm nothing In n girl's opinion In yours. I didn't realize what It would menu to a girl llko you and I went In for tho biggest things thnt Interested me books. I wns all wrong, but It's too late. I don't suppose," he dropped her hand and looked away, "I can 4iopo to bo forgiven, but I want you to know how hard It's been to tell you this, be cause," his eyes found hers, "I lovo you." Sho smiled hnpplly. "Perk, dearest," I knew all tho time. Ted let mo In on tho llttlo Joke, nnd I think It's dono you good. It's broad ened your views and Interest) and," Alio looked adorable, "and It's proved to me that you're n mnn-and Pork, you inlrh I" ' (I t know that thn ' I BEFORE DAY OF GUNPOWDER Soldiers Were Capable of Dolnjj Con siderable Execution With the ow and Arrow. The first "gnu" used In warfare wan undoubtedly the crossbow arbalest of the type having a reflex composite bow made of wood, sinew, horn or whalebone, nnd wound tip with i rachet or "crnnnnquln," which slipped on ovor the stock nnd wns held In place by a loop controlled by a trans verse peg In tho stock Just behind the lock. This weapon reached its highest development In Germany under Mnxl mlllnn, when It had n steel bow of Immense power. There Is one In thu Boston niuxemn with n bow of over two and ono-half Inches wide and near ly three-fourths of an Inch thick. In central Europe, France nnd Spain the bow was not used much save by the people who came under Mohnmmedan Influence. The cross-bow being a much easier weapon to use, It was forbidden lti England to anyone not having a certain Income, in order thnt tho yeo men nnd common people should be forced to use the long bow, which In military purposes wns vastly superior on account of the rapidity of Its fire, although outranged by tho crossbow. It had one grcnt advantage of light noss. A military crossbow with wind lass weighs about 20 pounds. REVOLUTION IN OLD EGYPT Records Tell of Uprising Which Evi dently Ended Unhappily for the Rebellious Citizens. A recently deciphered papyrus shows n pretty revolutionary spirit among the Egyptians In the year 2000 B. 0., or nearly 4,000 years before the French thought of an upheaval. The period Is between the old and tho middle kingdom, and an Egyptian sage plaintively Invites the king to snve his people In telling him of the conditions of the country. He tells him that "thnt Is past which yester day could be seen. The lnnd turns like a potter's wheel. The noblo cry out nnd the poor aro full of Joy. Ench town snys, 'Let us drive the strong from without our midst I Those who wore clothes aro now in rags. Noblo women trail through the land, and housewives say, 'Had we only some thing to entl' . . . The poor pos sess lordly things, and those who could, buy themselves no sandnls now hnve treasure. . . . The peoplo have dethroned the king nnd perse cuted his ofllclnls." Thnt the revolu tion was u success seems hnrdly to hnve been tlie case, for the papyrus goes on to say that laughter has gone ; misery Is In tho land; big and small say, "If only I were dead." Up a Tree. While In Africa recently Mr. A. 8. Le Souef, director of the Taronga ;soo (Sydney), snw plenty of elephants, hlch were destructive to the crops put In by the natives of the Uganda country. Ho also observed the body of a small antelope about 14 feet up a tree. The enrenss of the antelope had been put lit this position for sufo keeping, by leopnrds. "These members of the cat family nre hnnd roine, and extremely active," says Mr. Le Souef. "They play about In clear places In the forest, tenr up the ground, and spring far up the trees. They are most active, but they do not readily nttnek humnnlty, unless It bo a child at evening, nnd they nro hungry. Tho beauty of their fur makes them desirable for a zoo and for rugs, but tho number that mny be killed Is limited. I snw the beautiful Colobus monkey, which, in spite of its striking black-and-white coloring, was difficult to observe among the Juniper trees from whoso brnnches hung long pieces of lichen." No Man's a Hero to His Wife. Whllo the tire that destroyed the four-story Stlllmun department store In Muncie rocontly wns nt Its height an excited woman cnllcd police bend quarters, snylng thather husband, a workman, wns supposed to bo repair ing tho roof on the Stlllman building and she fenred he might havo perished In the flumes. A policeman who In vestigated found thnt tlie man in ques tion not only hnd escaped but had helped to save a woman clerk who was In danger,. The offlcer informed the wife of this, thinking she would not only be relloved but proud of the hus band. Instead she snapped bnck: "What wns my husband doing on the roof with a woman 7" Indlnnnpolls News. Length of Llfo Extended. In 1348-60, 25,000,000 denths from the plnguo or "black death" occurred, which was one-fourth of the entire population of tho world at thnt time. The average length of life In tho six teenth century wns only 21 years, while In this, tho twentieth century, the average life Is forty-flyo yenrs. In India, however, the average life today Is only twenty-four years. We are enabled to see what the sci ence of medicine Is accomplishing In more civilized countries, where igno rance and superstition do not prevail to any great extent. i Prsooclous Youth, Mary nnd Ruth were discussing plans for playing houso and Mary said, "I'll be tho mother and you bo my lit tle girl." r "No," said Ruth, "I want to bo the father." "Oh," said Mary, "let's play we've got plenty of money, and then- we won't need a futher." CELESTA By BRUCE BERESFORD (Copyright, 1919, by the Wt-Urn Nawi pnptr Union.) When father wtis cross and mother tired out mid sister Emmii In n bad temper, pretty, gentle Aldn Percy had nn unfailing source of respite and pleasure Celestn. Celesta was her pet canary. lie was nothing of u singer, although he had n full vocabulary of llttlo chirpings, of odd express Ivoness, covering :i gamut from pitiful,, pleading down to the hnrslt Inflections of complaint and scolding. As to his cute capers and tricks, his gyrations on his porch and his taking ways of daintily picking a cherry from Alda's own ruby lips and swinging on her neck chain extended lengthwise, he was acrobatic, entertain ing, guest and lover all In one. He greeted her with Joyful whistle at dawn and nil but kissed her good night. Friends might prove false and suitors tiresome, but Celesta thought only of Alda, lived only for her, and when one dny he lay dead In the bot tom of his cage Alda could not have mourned more sincerely If It had been a cherished member of the fam ily. Alda took no one Into the matter of the final disposition of her dead pet. "If there Is a bird's heaven," she told her mother, "Celesta's spirit has gone there. As to the poor llttlo body. It shall go bnck to the elements of nn ture thnt composed It." So Alda went down to the basement where the Janitor hnd his ofllce. She had been to the florist's nnd had ob tained a little box lined with soft white cotton. In this she placed the dead bird, covering him with flowers. Q'hls Impromptu casket she covered with folds of soft tissue paper. The Janitor wns conversing with u bright fnced, well dressed young man ns Alda entered tho ofllce. "Mr. Nelson," she spoke, extending the pnrcel In her hnnd, "will you please place this In the furnace. It Is my dead pet bird, Celesta, and I hnve no plnce to bury him." The. young mnn hnd drawn aside to afford Alda nn opportunity to proffer her request. As she told the object of her mission he removed his hat, anil Alda was grateful for what she took to be n recognition of respect, fond in terest in the dead companion of ninny happy hours. Tears were In her eyes ns she parted with all that remained of her little favorite. She turned away with only a casual glance at the young man. It wns an Impulsive remark of a close girl friend thnt caused her new uneasiness nnd worry after she hnd become quite resigned to her loss. Aldn hnd told this friend of the fnte of the little bird. "'Oh, Alda! how could you have consented to such a shocking thing ns having poor Celesta burned up!" exclaimed Winnie Tow ner, nnd the more Alda thoucht of the net the deeper grew her regret and melancholy." One dny she enme across xne janitor. "Of course you disposed of my bird ns I suggested?" said Aldu. "No, Miss. I didn't." came tho nnin-.- Ing reply. "Young Mr. Worrell asked me all about you that day you came to my otiice. lie opened the little box and saw the flowers and everything. kelson.' he says to mo. 'I will tnkn charge of this. Wo have a quiet pretty spot In our home garden 'where I am going to bury it.'" "And who Is Mr. Worrell?" ones- tinned Alda, n load seeming to have been lifted from her heart. "He and his sister own the buildiiiir here," explnlned the Janitor. "He Is tho young mnn who was here the day you brought the bird to me. Ho anil Ms sister live In tho big house with an lion fence all around n beautiful gar den up on Mersey street, onnosltn tlie library building." So llttlo Celestn had appealed to other hearts than her own I A feel ing of tho most fervent gratitude to ward Blake Worrell came to Alda, to remain permanently. Ono pleasant nf ternoon sho walked slowly by the plnco the Jnnltor described. Aldu look ed beyond tho fenets ncross the lovely flower beds nnd shrubbery, wondering where the grave of Celestn could be, und experiencing a sensation of rare relief and gladness to rcnllzo thnt her favorlto reposed amid such beauty nnd peace. A mnn nnd a woman came from the house nnd turned down the street toward the spot where Aldn stood. She recognized the young mnn of the Junltor's room. He hnlf pnused, slightly lifted Ids hat and passed on whllo Alda flushed, sho knew not why. The pair halted a few feet further on nnd the sweet fnced lady, Worrell's sister, came back to Alda. "My brother tells mo you are Miss Percy," she spoke. "Can I venture to think that you would like to seo whore we hnvo placed Celesta, alongside of two of our own remembered house hold pets?" Thnt broke the ice and let loose a flood of fervid emotions in tho Impres sible Aldn. The three visited n llttlo mound In n peaceful corner of tho lovely gnrden, nnd when they pnrted Aldn wns warmly Invited to again meet theso true souled people, whoso thoughts were so closely in harmony with her own. And with tho first flowers of spring bloMiomlng, It wns by the side of her huobnml that Aldn Worrell looked down upon tho little mound so pre cious to both.
