At my request Halsey had already
sen* word of the fire to the agent
from w hom me had secured the house
Also, he had called Mr. Jamieson by
telephone, and somewhat guardedly
f.^d told him of the previous nights
-vents Mr Jamieson promised to
come cm that night, and to bring an
other man with him I did not con
sider it necessary to notify Mrs Arm
strong. in the village No doubt she
knew of the fire, and in view of my
refusal to give Up the house an inter
view would probably have been un
peasant enough. Rut as we passed

I thought of something.

"To see Louise?" she asked.
No. ! want to ask this young Walker
She was curious. 1 knew but I did
not wait to explain I went up the'
walk to the house, where a brass sign
at the side announced the office, and
went in The reception room was
empty, but from the consultation
room beyond came the sound of two
voices, not very amicable.
"It is an outrageous figure." some
one was storming Then the doctor's
quiet tone, evidently not arguing,
merely stating something But 1 had
not time to listen to some person
probably disputing bis hill, so I
coughed The voices ceased at once: i
a door closed somewhere, and the doc
tor eniered from the hall of the house
He looked suffiiiently surprised at see
"Good afternoon. . octor." 1 said
formally. "! shall not keep you from
your patient 1 w ish merely to ask a
“Won't you su down?"
"It will not be necessary. Doctor,
has any one come to you. either early
ibis morning or to-day. to have you
treat a bullet wound?”
Nothing so startling has happened
to me." he said. "A bullet wound!
Things must be lively at Sunnyside."
"I didn't say it was at Sunnyside.
But as it happens, it w as. If any si h
rase conies to you. w ill it be too much
trouble for you to let me know?"
“I shall be only too happy,” he said.
"I understand you have had a fire up
there, too A fire and shooting in one
night is rather lively for a quiet place
"It is as quiet as a boiler-shop.” I
replied, as 1 turned to go.
"And you are still going to stay*"
"Until I am burned out." I respond
ed. And then, on my way down the
steps. I turned around suddenly.
"Doctor." 1 asked at a venture,
"have you rver heard of a child
named Lucien Wallace"
Clever as he was. his fare changed
and stiffened. He was on his guard
again in a moment.
"Lucien Wallace?" he repeated.
"No. I think not. There are plenty of
Wallaces around, but I don't know any
I was as certain as possible that
he did. People do not lie .eadily to
me, and this man lied beyond a doubt.
But there was nothing to be gained
now: his defenses were up. and I left,
half irritated and wholly baffled
Our reception was entirely different

bosom of the family at once. Flinders
tied outside and n'bbling the grass at
the roadside. Gertrude and 1 drank
some home-made elderberry wine and
told briefiy of the fire. Of the more
serious part of the night's experience,
of course, we said nothing But when
at last we had left the family on the
porch and the good doctor was unty
ing our steed. 1 asked him the same
question I had put to Dr. Walker.
"Shot!" he said. “Bless my soul,
no. Why. what have you b“en doing

“Some one tried to enter the house
during the fire, and was shot and
slightly injured."' I said hastily
“Please don't mention it: we wish to
make as little of it as possible."
There was one other possibility, and
we tried that. At Casanova station I
saw the station master, and asked him
if any trains left Casanova between
one o'clock and daylight. There was
none until 6 a. m The next question
required more diplomacy
"Did you notice on the six o'clock
train any person—any man—who
limped & little?" 1 asked. "Please

“And—did you see a man who

"No such person got on here to-day
But I'll tel! you where I did see a

Feathers in Style
HERE is a growing senti
ment against wearing the
, u, g plumage of birds, in vane
ti ties where cruelty must be
’ practised to secure it
Women are learning to discriminate
in this matter and to forego the wear
ing of plumage that promises to bring
about the extinction of a species of
beautiful wild birds or to inflict tor
ture. A proud crest of dainty feath
ers tom from the back of a mother
bird and the death of a nest full of
fledglings by slow starvation, are not
pleasant suggestions to flaunt with
the group of sweeping aigrettes upon
the bead of beauty. For the wearer
must be either uninformed, or indif
ferent, or unmindful of cruelty. Non*
of the excuses will pass muster with
Aside from a very few sorts, the
leathers we have worn recently and
those we will wear, are made from
the plumage of domestic or other edi
ble birds. No cruelty is practised in
securing them and thousands of peo
ple make a living by manufacturing
the millinery trimmings made of them.
Feather bands, sewed wings, pom
pons, breasts and mounted sprays—
m fact, a world of afry and attractive
decorations—are cleverly fashioned
from the feathers of the turkey, chick
en. pigeon, peacock and pheasant.
These are bleached, dyed, eaten with
acids, pieced and pasted until their
origin is lost sight of. Other birds
of bright plumage, such as the parrot,
and birds like the blackbird and spar
row. of which there are myriads, are
used, but they are not cruelly treated,
unless sucden death is cruel.
The wearing of a bird upon the hat
may be in questionable taste and at
present one sees almost no birds, but
any amount of plumage. Gradually
tne wearing of feathers may die out.
but the signs of the times do not point
that way More plumage is shown
now rhan ever before. Women should
learn to discriminate in choosing it.
and select those feathers which they
may wear with an easy conscience.
They are obliged to inform themselves
in some states of the Union or run
the risk of forfeiting their forbidden
property. For laws have been passed
and are enforced to protect certain
birds, and one may not own their

PLEA FOR THE GROWING GIRL
Problem of Material Management
That Is Worth Some Serious
So many older women seem to
think that because a girl of from four
teen to twenty or so is likely to be
| callow and sometimes forward and
| rather ridiculous in her pretentions oi
age and dignity she must be conun
uaUy snubbed and “put down." They
keep calling her "child" and laugh
mg at her opinions and criticisms,
and leaving her out of discussion and
; conversation, until some day they
awake with a start to realise that the
! child is a woman, and a pert and em
I bit!ered woman at that
Of course. American girls are no
torious for their unpleasant presump
tioa. and there are many, many things
which a girl in her teens is not com
petent to decide for herself, let alone
for others, but there is nc reasor
why a girl who really is growing up
should be made to feel that she is al
ways in the way and must be pat
I rouised when she is noticed a: alL
Give her at least a chance to feel
that she is one of the family and that
she is a step above the children in
the nursery, whom she is likely so to
Here, as elsewhere, "you will go
most safely in the middle.” and this
rather delicate problem of maternal |
management will settle itself if con
sideration and common sense art

Easy Way to Clean Lace Yokes.
If instead of taking lace yokes and
cuffs out of dresses to wash wbea
soiled they are rubbed with dry
starch, then brushed thoroughly, the

young woman who is still in her teens,

Opportunity of Suffragist.
Baroness Aletta KorfT tells in on*
of the magazines how the women of
Finland came to vote. The fact is
that w«men had to show that they
could meet an emergency before the
vote came to them. They have not
had many opportunities to take the
initiative in the world's history and
they have not always responded when
the opportunity came, but when a
crisis, such as that in 1904. when the
strike and the revolutionary outbreak
in Russia took place at the same time,
occurred, they proved they could
make peace by doing it. Not until
England and the 'Called State* find
