A letter from the Count of Yor
<ck afforded ns Infinite pleasure and
deserves to he set out In full:
Dear Helena:
I hope you are very well. I am
not at Yorick because I was bitten
by a mad dog and a good Sammarry
tone brought me straight here. I
would like to thank him for that.
He saved my life, you know. Fancy
a mad dog worrying me. I think I
must just have gone out for a walk
or something and then it just leeped
upon me and worried me and I
knew no moar. And this is the only
one place that I could have been
saved from going mad. It makes you
get hot all over. By the way, I’m off
liquor. Alcohol, I mean. They make
me heeling drinks here with virtue
In them and I fairly lapp them up.
And the wound's heeling like a lit
tle child. They say liquor's very
dangerous for hlderofobea. I nearly
•died, you know. All the wile the
good Sammarrytones were taking
me to the monastery, It was touch
and go moar than once. The madness
was in my vanes. It makes you go
hot. But I'm all right now. They
say I can get up for a little wile on
Sunday and look at the flours. I
shall like that. I see the vannity of
life now all right. There is a good
monk here called Father Bernard.
Of course, they are all good, but
he is the best. He says all is van
nity and that the pumps of the world
are void. You know there’s a lot in
that. Well, 1 must end now. But I
thought you might wunder where
I was. What a escape! Fancy a mad
dog like that ranging about seaking
whom he might devower. I tell you,
I hadn't a chance. He just leeped
upon me, nashing their fangs. I can
see it now.
Your loving brother,
P. S.
What about Fanlng? I rather
i^upe he’s gone. If not, perhaps you
could fire him out. He swore Spen
cer was your evil genie, but I
thought Spencer had a good eye.
Sour grapes, I guess. I suppose you
knew what you were doing.
The reformation this letter fore
shadowed was more than we could
believe, but I am bound to record
that it was fairly fulfilled. The
shock or the fear of death, or. per
haps, his curious communion with
that honest and kindly fellowship
simple souls wrought in the
count an astonishing change of
heart. The weeds that had choked
his qualities withered and died, and
though I was most apprehensive of
our relation, 24 hours' acquaint
ance had made us the best of
His postscript brings me to Pha
Of that unconscionable scoundrel
I have but little to say. That the
man was most swift and daring I
•cannot deny, but I think that his
deadly reputation was to him the
highwayman’s mare. Carefully fed
and cherished, it was this that
carried him into and out of en
gagements without a scratch: but
when at last he was standing upon
his own feet, even I was able to
show that, if his eye was quicker,
at least his spine was as brittle as
that of another man. For all that,
he was bold and efficient—and
something more. Ill served, dogged
by misfortune, he nevertheless con
trived almost to wring a victory out
of defeat. So far as I know, he
only made one mistake—and that
was to kill young Florin: so far as I
know, he had hut one slice of luck
—and that was. on binding Helena,
to find that she had in her hand her
master key.
The portrait m.v cousin had paint
ed will always rank for me as one
of the greatest triumphs a painter
ever achieved. This is not because
he had rendered a beautiful like
ness, nor yet because he had cap
tured the leaping spirit that lived
In the lovely flesh; but because he
had marked, as I had, that the pre
cious eager look .vas out of his sub
ject's face and had painted It In
from memory out of a grateful
Though m.v life is secure and
happy beyond belief, the events of
those terrible days are cut in stone
upon my mind. But 1 would not for
get them, if 1 could: for out of their
wrack and turmoil 1 won m.v beau
tiful wife. Often and often l read
their grim Inscription and gaze at
the riotous pageant which this calls
up. I see that dreadful labor down
In the sparkling dell and Dewdrop
finger the paper that I let fall: 1
trend The Reaping Hook’s stairs
and I hear—as 1 shall hear to m.v
dying day—the deadly voice of IMia
raoh behind the door: I see him
enter the room with Valentine’s
hand upon his shoulder and I hear
him whistling for Sabre with m.v
heart In my month: i hear the
Together, Saving Each Other, We
Rode Out That Frightful Storm.
Carlotta coming with the rush of
a mighty wind, and I hear the
cough of the Rolls as her engine
failed: I hear Rush plying Bugle
to make my blood run cold, I
hear Pharaoh bullying Freda, and
I see the flame of the pistol that
saved his life; I see the awful
change in my darling’s face, and I
turn to see Pharaoh smiling behind
my back: I smell the fragrance of
the valley that knew no sun: and
I see her stricken and trembling in
Pharaoh's power, and I hear the
roar of our pistols and I see the
man spent with hatred, staring into
my eyes. . . .
It is written, Out of the eater
came forth meat. I can only say !
have found this saying most true.
The goddess Aphrodite rose from
the foam of the sea: but Helena
Spencer came out of the wrath of
a tempest that had risen to smite
us both. Together, saving each
other, we rode out that frightful
storm—the remembrance of which
is not grievous, for our desperately
perilous passage, side by side, has
bound us more closely together
than the sharing of any joys.

When James Brynildson, representative of his ultra modern life,
poses as a penniless soldier of fortune and for $50,000 agrees to
become the husband of a beautiful girl whose life had been spent
in the 19th century atmosphere of an almost inaccessible moun

of the most charming love stories you will ever read.

The Romance of
Your Name
A Coleman?
THIS name is found in England
as early as A. D. 664, on the
northeast coast. The first-mentioned
bearer of the name was a celebrat
ed Scotch Bishop of Eindisfarne.
This Bishop, in consequence of a
heated controvery, retired from his
church and built three monasteries
in different parts of the country.
Another devout member of the fam
ily was a crusader to the Holy Eand
and was slain in Austria. He be
came a patron saint of that coun
try In 1015, and the eighteenth of
October Is still noted on the Homan
calendar as the Memorial day of the
It is Interesting to know that
there is an Important street in the
city of London which has borne
the name of Coleman since time
Oqe of the first of the Coleman
family to come to America was
Thomas, who spelled the name
“Coultman." He was born In 1602
in Wiltshire, England. He came
over on the good ship James, ar
riving In Boston, Mass., 1635. He
was married three times nnd left a
long line of descendants. His tirst
wife was Mnry (surname unknown);
his second wife was Mary Johnson,
and the third was Mary Rowell.
His three brothers, Edward, Sam
uel and William, were also early
arrivals In this country.
Other Colemans caine at later
times. Joseph came from County
Kent, England, and settled in Scitu
ate, Mass., in 1635. William Cole
man and his wife, Elizabeth, came
on the ship Arabella in 1071. Their
son, Benjamin, became a noted min
ister and was a director of Har
vard university for 50 years.
The coat of arms above shown Is
ascribed to William Coleman (1673),
of Massachusetts.

A Hay?
THE legend surrounding the ori
gin of this name is that, during
the reign of Kenneth III of Scotland
about the year 980 the Danes, hav
ing Invaded the country, were met
by the Monarch near Loncarty, in
Perthshire. At first the Scots gave
way and fled through a narrow
pass, where they were stopped by a
countryman of great strength and
courage, with his two sons and no
weapons other than the yokes of
their plows. Severely reprimanding
the fugitives for their cowardice, he
succeeded in rallying them. The
battle was renewed and the Danes
put to flight. After the victory was
won, the old man lying on the
ground, wounded, cried out, “Hay!
Hay!” and this word became the
name of his posterity.
The king, as a reward to Hay,
gave him as much land in the dis
trict of Gow'rle as a falcon could
fly over before It settled. The fal
con flew over six miles In length
and lighted on a stone which wad
called Falconstone.
The motto of the family Is “Serva
jugum,” meaning “keep the yoke.”
The crest of arms was also granted
to the rustic Scot by King Kenneth.
The land over which the falcon flew
was later called Errol and was the
home of the Hays, Earls or Errol,
for generations.
Hays In America settled in Mas
sachusetts and Connecticut. Hays
of East Chester, N. Y., claim de
scent from James Hay of Scotland,
one of the followers of the Pretend
er, who escaped to America In 1745,

Delayed Pruning
Halts Grape Loss
Full Extent of Damage
Must Be Known to Aid
in a Larger Field.
By A. S. Colby. Chief in Small Fruit Culture,
Univereity of Illinois.—WNU Service.
Certain varieties of grape vines
have been so hard bit by the severe
winter that pruning this spring
should be delayed until the full ex
tent of the damage can be told and
the vines pruned accordingly. Any
vines on which the fruit buds have
not been killed, If properly pruned,
can be made to yield twice what
they otherwise would.
The grower should look upon hts
vines as separate Individuals, and
after allowing for gradations In
vigor resulting from Insects and
diseases, soli differences and weath
er conditions should handle the
vines In such a way that vine
growth and yield of well-matured
clusters are balanced yearly.
Results of studies with Concord
grapes showed that IT most of Inst
season’s shoots were too short and
too weak to produce laterals, the
vine was pruned too lightly the
previous season. That Is, too many
nodes were left. If the shoots
were so vigorous that they pro
duced an excessive amount of lat
eral growth, too many nodes had
been removed the previous winter.
The grower therefore should
strike the balance between these
two extremes by leaving enough
nodes at pruning time so that vig
orous shoots will grow for the fol
lowing year’s crop, while at the
same time enough fruit Is allowed
to grow and mature for the cur
rent season. However, these shoots
should not be vigorous enough to
send out many side branches or lat
erals. From 50 to 70 nodes to the
vine usually will be enough under
normal conditions.
It also Is Important Mint nodes he
left on either four or six canes,
rather than on a large number of
short spurs. It has been found
that the best fruiting buds are
found on those canes from the
fourth to the twelfth node. Hence
most of the best fruit will he re
moved and the vines will run to
wood If they are “spur pruned.”
Several well-matured canes at least
as large as a lead pencil should be
left with from 12 to 15 nodes on
each cane. The number will de
pend upon the previous growth of
the plant and the size and quality
of the crop.
Why Some Forage Plants
Cause Death of Animals
A few good forage plants are
known to be cyanophoric at some
time in their growth. That is, they
contain compounds that decompose
to liberate hydrocyanic acid (prus
sic acid). When these plants are
associated with sudden death
among animals that eat of them, it
is commonly assumed that such fa
talities are the result of cyanide
poisoning, says a writer in Success
ful Farming.
Some of the suggested antidotes
for cyanide poisoning seem to be
marvelously effective. Their use by
experienced veterinary practition
ers Is to be recommended in cases
of sudden and violent Intoxication
in which cyanophoric plants are in
volved. It Is not, however, to be
concluded that because animals re
vive after such treatment for cyan
ide poisoning that the case of ill
ness was in every Instance the re
sult of cyanide poisoning. In oth
er words, the recognition of a dis
ease on the basis of recovery after
a specific treatment Is not usually
a safe way to decide as to the
cause. Abundance of hydrocyanic
acid in the feed or stomach con
tents must be found before one
can be certain that cyanide is a
cause of Illness. In cases of death
it must also be found In the vital
Fertilizer for the Pasture
A fertilizer containing both nitro
gen and phosphate should be used
for the establishment of a new
bluegrass pasture. If the soil is me
dium or above In fertility, says the
Missouri Farmer, 200 pounds of
4-12-4 or 4-1G-4 fertilizer, or 100
pounds of sodium nitrate plus 200
pounds of 20 per cent superphos
phate should be applied. On soils
below medium in fertility, 400
pounds of superphosphate should
be applied if a good bluegrass pas
ture is desired. Lime should be
added to those soils known to be
very acid at the rate of one ton of
agricultural limestone or 400 pounds
of fine lime per acre. No attempts
should be made to establish Ken
tucky bluegwass on the poorer soils.
Water for Horses
For idle horses there is no rea
son why water should not be kept
before them at all times. In fact,
this Is the practice during the sum
mer when horses are out on pas
ture. The difficulty comes with
working horses, who when they
come in from heavy work are like
ly to overdrink, with the result
ing danger of founder. Under most
conditions, therefore, It Is prob
ably safer to water horses at fixed
periods, so that the amounts may
be controlled than to allow them
free access to unlimited water.
