The Lot Sold
Dy JOHN PALMER
in Newspaper Union.)
(ffi. lUi'3, n
"pHAT Utile lot at the corner of
Ninth street was going to nialto
lulin Jlentlt'j's fortune sonie day. He
had tolled he and Folly on the llttlu
fiirni. to save I lie few hundreds re
quired; now I lie lot was his, but Folly
was dead and lie had no further inter
est In lite.
Mcchnnlfiilb; he drudged away, and
grmliiitllv, as the shod; of his luss be
gan to lessen, he took up tho routine
of life again. He was a lonely man,
without a rclathc in thu world. Whom
was lie working for? it was in purl
the working Instinct, Just to labor;
Dimly lie envisaged u future of ease
when the lot had increased to a value
that would enable him to retire from
The lot had long ago been sold for
taxes, but Jolfn Itentley knew nothing
ubout It. l'crhnps the notice hnd mis
curried, or hu hnd received It und
had not understood. He thought the
lot was his forever.
After u few years he went Into tho
city to look at It. Tho little, weed
grown lot upon the outskirts hud be
come u part of the city, und on It
Btood a two-story shop.
He scratched his head. "1 guess
sonic one's been building there," he
said. "They sure hud no right to build
on my lot without my leave. I guess
they'll have to go when I get ready to
He hiu tlofng better with the little
farm, and estimated that he had many
years of work ahead of him. And It
was about this time that an Idea emtio
Into his iniud. He would make the lot
u monument to Folly.
He decided, after much thought, that
when the value of It had become enor
mous, he would huilti a small hospital
the Follv Meiuorhil hospital, he
called II in his mind. The Idea made
him ver.v happy, and lie went on hoe
ing his potatoes.
A few years later, returning to the
city, he found that the lot was in the
heart of the busliie-s region. The shop
hail gone; in its place stood un ollice
building of seven stories. The click
of typewriters could be heard from all
the window. Hentley stood In the
street and grinned.
"They sure have a nerve, setting up
that place on my lot," he said. "Guess
they'll feel pretty mean when I give
'em notice to go. Hut 1 want that site
for Folly's hospital."
Ills Idea wns to mortgage the lot,
which must by now be of Incalculable
value, build the hospital with the pro
ceedshe hud no Idea of the cost of
this and get It started, trusting to
luck and the good-will of subscribers
to keep it going.
The Idea had become more or hiss a
monomania. The larm was not dulng
so well nowuilus. The "oil was worn
out, und Hentley was growing old, mid
less able to work. When lie made Ids
last trip to the city he had hardly
anything but his few acres and the old
working clothes he stood In.
When he reached tin; lot he stopped
In iiiuazenieiit. The business unices
were gone, for the town was now
spreading in another direction. In their
place stood a magulllcent building
with a white marble entrance.
For a moment or two old Hentle.v
had misgivings-. "Sure they'll have to
go," he muttered. "They can't take
m lot away front me. Thej'll have to
Ami then he discovered that the
Kt'eat building was a lio.-pllal. lie saw
nurses at the windows, patients in
their beds, looking out Into the street.
Fverythlng was as he had dreamed,
hut someone had anticipated him.
It was Follj's hospital 1 The ieall.a
liou of the dream s(nt a sudden wiish
of blood to his head. Hentley stag
gered, threw out ids arms, and dropped
neonseloiis to the sidewalk.
A .voting interne, who was coining
out. saw the crowd that gathered
around the iinnni-i ions mail, and hur
ried to Ids side, lie saw that Hentle.v
hail been struck down by apoplevy.
He culled the potter, and thc.x carried
tint inside the hospital and he wio
put to bed In the public ward.
For da.vs old Hentle.v lay in a stu
por, out of which he emerged to lie

"No, we can't llnd nut who the old
fellow Is," the hotte doctor told the
porter. "I guess he'll have to go to

too far pone for that."
I'p In the ward a screen had been
drawn around .lohn Hentle.v 's bed. The

"My hospital," she lu'tird him tnuiu

"Who's I'oll.vV" asked tho, nurse.
"They beat me to It, but It's Foll.v's

FEEDING THE FAMILY
rp HIS Is the dally task

to provide u good nieul for the family.
As DO per cent of our housewives must
use economy. It Is vital that they know
how to spend the money provided
theni, for the best fund, our gro
cers tell u It Is not the wealthy house
wives, us a rule, who buy food, fruit,
veirelables and luxuries nut of season,
but those who crin least afford It.
It Is often a lack of knowledge of
food values', nnd carelessness and In-'
difference In regard to expenditures.
Tt should be the aim, nnd Is, with
n large majority of housekeepers, rich
or poor, to feed (he family well, with
as little waste as possible and with
as small a money outlay. Food Is the
big Itene In the weekly budget of the
crowing family and there Is no one
who can do more than suggest ns to
the wise spending of the Income, for
each family has Its own problems
which must he worked out In the
same manner that a mother mannges
her children no two need the same
training or discipline.

labor nee .substantial, lllllni: meals.
Th hovs need a-, initeli us mown men,
for they are hu'M'iu; their bodies ns

tivities. .Men who are In oiliees. or occupied
In positions where the brain Is uctivo
and Hie hod.v has little exercise, need
much los of the oueray-producing
food. Their food should be of such
coinhlnatli'iis as are eas'ly digested,
