Melted Cloth \

"To think of buying a suit of
clothes for less'n .1 dollar,” dreamily
mused old Irad Hlglow, ns his cousin,
Edgar, at whoso home he had been
paying nu unwelcome visit, hacked up
the wagon to receive tint old-fashioned
It wa« imperative that Irad linger a
bit longer with his kinsman, and ho
looked gloomy as Edgar observed, "No
more of your schemes for me. I'm tired
of your dreams of wealth that never
"While some would expect the price
to go as low as 59 cents, 1 believe t>9
cents is more conservative," mused
Irad, Ills aged brow clouding. "Anil
with the output In one man's hands,
"In what man’s hands?" snapped
Edgar, yet lowering his end of the
"1 fear I am betraying a confidence,
hut the lucky man Is Jim Witham.”
“Jim Witham," Jeered Edgar, grap

and his games before.”
“And millions and millions are In
It," gently murmured Irad.
Edgar straightened and eyed his
relative closely. He loved dollars.
"It’s simply the question of who will
start the business first,’' continued
"What business?" sharply demanded
Edgar, sliding Into a veranda chair
yet tapping his boot against the trunk
Irad looked cautiously about and
then confided, "I fear I promised not
to tell, but It’s the business of melting
"Melting cloth!" gasped Edgar,
growing limp. "Why, what In sin
would you melt cloth for? It can’t bo
"Mebbe not. mebbe yes." knowingly
returned Irad, moving to the trunk.
"But come; 1 must be at Cousin Free
man's by nightfall." Then he added,
"He ami Wlthani have scraped to

"You’ve said too little,” sternly de
clared Edgar. "Your visit can wait
till day after to-morrow."
"I ought to go now," demurred Irad.
"Not a step till after to-morrer,”
firmly declared Edgar. "Ami we’ll have

Irad dragged his trunk back to the
door and fingered his beard nervously.
Then he explained, "The art of melt
tug cloth was sought by the ancients.
The secret has now been discovered.
If one could melt an old coat down
Into one solid piece of cloth another
coat as good as the old one could be
made, only smaller, as you'd have to
allow for the boh a.
"No cloth In all the world thrown
away!” babbled Elgar, beginning to
figure on the arm of the chair.
“Not a piece, not a serld, not a
thread," assured Irad, his body relax
ing. "We would quietly buy up rags
and remnants from the mills and
then molt them into one huge, glossy
piece, colored any way we desire.
Then we'd start selling suits for $2
each. The Income from the first In
vestment would net us—"
"Would net you, 1 mean, some $40,

“What in sin has that to do with it?"
criei Edgar, his brow flaming.
“It's only a detail,” mollified Irad,
stepping to the door. “Roosevelt is ex
pected to capture that rare bird known
as the zgewix, In vhose tail is a cer

moulting period will provide an acid
that mixed with equal portions of

"And the cloth can't be melted
without that danged feather?” pas
sionately demanded Edgar.
“Hardly,” said Irad. “That's what's
keeping Witham back. You see I
know a feller with Roosevelt who'll
git me a feather if the bird Is caught
and is brought back alive and

time had threat

learning fast and
willing to please.
* This morning the
I had been browned to a turn, ttie cor
fec dear and the eggs boiled to a
I proper consistency. So good was
i everything, in fact, that Mrs. Lane
forgot for the moment I hat the 14
year old girl bad so strong an aver
sion to shoes and stockings that stie
oceasionaly ushered in guests with
out wearing these toilet accessories.
Now, as Mrs. Lane watched the girl
leap over th*> fence and dart toward
the post office, she could not but ad
mire the grace and beauty of the un
conventional little creature. She
thought of the wonderful change the
past two months had made In her,
how tractable and quick to learn she
was, how Inherently refined, poetical
In thought and soft In speech. A
half-formed plan to take her to the
nortli in the spring, give her an edu
cation and make a companion of her
crystallized in Mrs. Lane's mind. She
determined to go to see the girl's
mother that afternoon and talk It
j over with her.
Then came doubt and dismay. He
; turning slowly, Mandy walked with a
lank youth who bent toward tier. Hits
of village gossip recurred to Mrs.
Lane’s mind. Hut no, Mandy was too
j much of a child to think of beaux!
' However, If she had any such tender
sentiments, they would stand In the
way of her going north. So ns the
| girl came In at the sido gate Mrs.
| Lane called to her.
"I saw you walking down the street
with Hud Johnson, Mandy," began
Mrs. Lane, kindly, when the girl ap
; proached. "Is It true that you and lie
: are sweethearts, as they say?"
The girl's eyes flashed and her
slight figure became tense, as sho an
swered: “Him? No, ma'am. 1 Jes’
let him walk a piece-a-way with me
to tell him not to bo bangin' 'roun' no
moah! No Johnson ken come sweet
heartin’ 'roun' me none! Doan you-all
know they is the otlinh side of the
Mrs. Line's heart jumped. She had
read southern stories full of feuds
and now she had come in contact
"You-all sure know 'bout that?”
queried Mandy again, “They ain't no
moah men left on our side, so they
ain't no nioali shootin', but tboy's
been times when they's been blood
| a plenty between we-all an' that John
son tribe, an' none ken come 'roun'
me—no, ina'am! They killed my
daddy, an’ my gran'daddy, an’ daddy
killed two ’fore they popped him, an’
they's been shootin' a-plenty afore
that. They ain’t no men left on our
side, now; so J reckon the feud’s
broke, Hut the feelln's there—yes,
ma'am. I'd be a poor thing to marry
"Well, you should not marry for
some years, at least, Mandy,” hastily
Interposed Mrs. Dune. You are not
old enough to think of such things
"Yes, ma’am," answered Mandy, In
her gentle voice aB she went Into the
That night the girl had permission
to go to a cousin's in the w-oods to a
cabin dance, with the stipulation that
she would return at nooil the next
day. When the next night came and
no Mandy appeared nnd the next
morning found her still absent, Mrs.
Lane was filled with forebodings of
what might have happened to the
girl. So she rode out to Mandy's
mother's house near the bayou. She
| liad never seen Mandy's faintly and
looked about curiously as she neared
the house. Children of all sizes were
rioting in the hot sunlight with chick
ens, dogs, and a litter of young pigs.
A faded, tired woman who might have
been 60 came to the gate.
"I'm looking for Mandy’s mother,”
began Mrs. Lane.
"I reckon I’m her," said the woman.
"Then have you seen or heard any
thing from her? She should have
been back from her cousin's at noon
yesterday, but she hasn't been heard
from and I am so worried! ”
“I reckon you-all needn't worry
'bout Mandy,” responded her mother,
listlessly. "She won't come back to
you-all this year, anyway. They say
as how her an' Bud Johnson lit out
las’ night an’ was married,” she ex
"Mandy married! It can’t be. She’s
hardly more than a baby!”
"I reckon she’s married. Hud John
