by a shrewd plot. .
CHAPTER XV- Continued.
This is spoken as, he springs off the
horse, tosses' the bridle to the boy, and
runs up the stairs. "Marina is inside,
'I imagine," he says, and calls through
tthe doorway.
"Marina left for Bastia over an hour
ago," says Barnes.
Why did she leave for Bastia?"
"A telegram." answers Barnes, "pur
porting to come from you stating that
;you would be at . that place to-morrow
Bioming. Notwithstanding her fatigue,
she went on by carriage to meet you."
"A telegram? Impossible! Bastia
Is at the north end of the Island. I
(arrived at Ajaccio, the south .end. Be
sides, I sent no telegram."
Edwin is interrupted by a short cry
from Barnes: "Cipriano Danella!" '
With an execration Anstruther asks
hoarsely.: "Do you think he has aught
to do with this?' -
"I aa pretty certain of it You do
not realise that fellow's passion for"
"For my wife? By heaven. I'll kill
him!" and the young English officer
looks round to .call the boy who has
come with him. but the urchin, being
eager for bed. is already out of hear
ing with the -horse. Suddenly he cries:
"Barnes, -you're not going to leave
Enid 'here unprotected," for the Amer
ican is almost running down the ave
nue, Edwin after him.
"I haven't found my wife."
'! "The ladf upstairs, whom I heard?"
"Was not Enid. . It was that infernal
Ia Belle Blackwood, and yet I forgive
her, for she told me the direction she
thought Enid had taken," and as they
half trot, half stride down the avenue
under the chestnut trees, Burton epit
omises his adventures of the day.
"What are you going to do now?"
"Get' horses and follow-your wife.
She is the one to which we, have a
dew.. We must prevent heP falling
lata Daaella's hands.' Pihaph I
pray Cod in followiHg'fhirwe may
find also the way to my wife."
"Because Cipriano Is the real brains
f this infernal outrage."
As they reach the gateway of the
grotmts they are abruptly-Intercepted.
One of the young Bellacoscia, hidden
In a tree, "springs out to them, gun in
hand, bat recognizing Mr. Barnes, the
young man, says: "I am one of those
watchiag!that no Saliceti troubles you.
I let this man' pass because I saw he
was a foreigner?' ,
"That's all right," .replies Burton,
"but could you show nae the telegraph
stationan3 where'to gef horses?"
"Beside Hotel Mouvrages in the
main street is the telegraph station,"
answers the young man, "and a stable
to hlre.norses is at 'the inn."
"Thank you." Also I want to see
your .chief, if he hasn't already gone to
the mountains."
"fa it important?"
' "Very."
'Then Signore Antonio will be here
in. a few minutes," answers the young
fellow and speeds off through a neigh
boring lane.
The two harry to the inn, but Bocog

veranda. "I have already petitioned

"Sapristi, will not I!" says the mag
nificent man, his hawk's eyes flashing
as they look upon the loveliness of the
entrancing American adventuress.
"Count on Bonelli to his heart's blood."
Then he' asks moodily: "But why are

"This lady is not my wife." , '
"Santa Maria, not your wife! Gran

"biavbla'suprema!" cries the great

of little use."
"Design against the honor of the
daughter of the Paoli!" snarls Bonelli.
"Impossible! I will go with you upon
this errand myself."
But the enchanting tones of Sally
Blackwood make him pause; she Is
pleading: "Whatand desert me
among your wild mountains?" v
"No, 'tis best I go not," remarks the
bandit chief. "Gendarmes, with me in
your company, would be an embarrass

may doubtless aid you. And' your wife,

"Still in the hands of Saliceti or his
"They did not surrender her as they
"No. They substituted this lady."
"Corpo di Diavolo, Saliceti has

against Bernardo Eduardo Saliceti."
Along the, Cyclamen Path.,
Both young men are riding light;
Barnes for this speedy dash has left
his rifle and his field glasses behind
him. and they gallop up the pass of
the Force. But the ascent is so steep
they are soon compelled to walk their
horses. A precipice is on one side of
them and the great flanks of Del Oro
are on the other. Both Edwin and
Burton have been silent, thinking; of
their wives. The latter now remarks,
pointing to a deep gorge' running up
the mountain side: "That, I believe,
leads to La Pintica, the home of the
Bellacoscia. which . the gendarmes
never dare to visit."
But they having reached the summit
of the Col,- now speed their- horses
sharply down the declivities into the
great forest of Vlzzavona, the road'
leading them through pines, beeches
and the inevitable chestnut trees. -
They havey passed no one in the
darkness.- In fact,,, they have not yet
gone far enough to have any hope of
overtaking Marina unless accident has
befallen her vehicle. Besides, her
horses were fresh; theirs, according
to the hostler, had been ridden daring

barking of some curs and the granting

They go to climbing again and soon
alter descend through the gorge of the
rapid Vecchio, the river: foaming far
beneath the road, while rocky, hills
and sharp mountains rise on either

they have made no inquiries; they

up one of the principal streets of the
central inland town of Corsica, the
great Monte Rotondo now looking
down upon themT
Above them are tall elm trees that
catch the rays of the rising son.
Flanked on each side by white stone,
red-roofed houses, they pass between
the hotels Pierracci and Paoli, almost
deserted now, this being the beginning
of the hot summer, season. Along the
street are many placards indicating
the approaching election. Every time
he sees the name of Saliceti, Barnes,
compressing his lips, thinks of his lost
At the Pierracci they learn from bne
of the waiters that a lady had paused
to obtain a relay of horses, and had
brought out to her at her request a
cup of coffee.
"Was she driven-by an old man?"
questions Edwin, hurriedly.
."Yes. with a beard like a bandit,"
answers the man with a grin, "The
carriage was full of cyclamen flowers.
You could smell them all ' over the

makes him look almost as happy as
this news does Anstruther.
"Only an hour ago! We will over
take Marina long before she reaches
Bastia." cries Edwin.
They ride hurriedly, the road skirt
ing the torrent of the foaming Vecchio
until considerably over an hour after
leaving Corte they reach Ponte-alla-Lecchio,
where the big bridge crosses
the river Golo. During this the horse
men note. more, signs of the coming
casting of votes.
Some of the'Lucchese" workmen
from Italy are throwing stones at an
election placard' that displeases them.
"The pests from" Lucca," mutters a
Corsican shopkeeper as they buy a
glass of wine from him, "are always
riotous, and at election times batter
every one's heads with stones their
own included. They've been here since
sunrise fighting and brawling. I heard
their shouts when I was in bed. But
everyone pardons the 'Lucchese;' they
do all our hard work." adds the man
with a grin, pocketing the coin Edwin
'hands him.
But the wine shop keeper can tell
them nothing of a woman traveling,
and to their astonishment, though they
make many inquiries, they hear of no
lady in a carriage passing through
the village this morning.
"It's quite possible." says Edwin to
Barnes, "she didn't stop here. Her
horses were fresh. She's gone on. No
one has noticed her." - -
"That's very true," answers Burton,
though his face grows more concerned
and gloomy.
Therefore they ride rapidly along
over the now well-kept road, which
generally skirts the Golo. Turning
north, they spur on over the cause
way that crosses 'the great lagoons
and soon after passing through some
small villages, they come out upon the
sea and ride almost straight along Its
shores, to enter that miniature Genoa,
, called Bastia, some two hours before
midday. - -
Barnes pilots his companion-to the
Hotel de France. "Yon should like this
inn," he observes; "It's on the Boule
vard PaoU:"
. Catching, sight "of a gentleman In a
tall hat and a swallowtail coat, Barnes
says: "These are the only ones in

Farm folks-need the smile just as
much as the crops need the sun

in' the world where the farmer wants
to venture.
Comfortable quarters for the hogs
are essential to proper economy of
the food ration.)
Look through the vegetable bins
and let the stock clean up all the
small potatoes and the half-rotted ap

honestly earned, which is more than
can be said for the success of some
business enterprises.

A good time to begin with sheep.

The seed corn which was selected
last fall and thoroughly dried will
prove the wisdom of the farmer in the
eyes of his less careful and provident
neighbor when the two stands of corn
of the coming season are compared.

The first thing to do with the newly

saved by a little attention at this
time. It often occurs that the teat

to the efforts of the lambkin. Lend a
helping hand.
The fall-dropped colt Is more con
venient on the average farm than
those born in the spring. Some of the
horses on nearly every farm are idle
all winter anyway and the mares
might better be nursing colts and giv

Let the boys on the farm have some
animal or plot of ground which is
really their own. and then let them
realize the profits to be made from
them. In this way they will feel a
personal Interest in farm matters and
will learn by practical experience the
ins and outs of stock raising and farm

as nothing else will.
In estimating the amount of seed
needed for a certain field it is quite
essential that you know its dimen

do you? Is it not largely guess work.
A good cotton cord, the size of a plow
line, should be kept for a measuring
line. To make one, buy 70 feet of cot
ton cord, fasten a ring at each end
and make these rings' exactly 66 feet
apart This is four rods. Tie a piece
of red cloth in the center. One acre
of ground will be the length of four of
these cords and 2& cords wide, equal
to 16x10 rods, making 160 square rods
to the acre.
The soil, the cow, the market and
the man behind the combination are
the determining factors as to success
or failure In the dairying business.
Plenty of men would lose money at 15
cents a quart The acre should be
made to produce the . most possible
feed because in this way the cost of
production is reduced to a minimum.
The cow should be bred and fed to
produce large quantities. The market
should be determined according to
conditions. .No dairy farmer can af
ford to grow average crops. He must
put the fertility into the land and se
cure high production. Two or three
crops can be grown on the same land
in one seassn. but -of course in this
country where land Is so cheap it is
not necessary to do farming under

Damp crib corn will prove a curse

It has been proved from experi

be purchased at approximately as low
a price as corn per pound no profit

The spoiled horse is generally the
one that has been improperly trained.
Careful, thorough breaking should so es
tablish the good traits of a horse as to
make the acquiring of bad habits al
most impossible save where the gross
est kind of mismanagement was prac
ticed. It Is a good practice in planting an
orchard to alternate the varieties, set
ting not over two or three .rows of
one sort and then something else.
This will insure heavier bearing
through cross-pollination of the blos
soms, some sorts not being able to
fertilize themselves. '
Mowing the field of young alfalfa
may check the weeds but it will also
check the alfalfa. The ground In
tended for alfalfa should be so thor
oughly prepared that weeds have no
chance to start until after the alfalfa
is 'well along and firmly rooted. Al
falfa that gets the right start will
prove very inhospitable ground for
the weeds.
A man must be friendly to have
friends. This was never more true
than in the country. Try a little friend
liness toward that neighbor whom you
have considered rather cold and dis
tant You will perhaps find he will
warm up to yon and the friendshlD
will work mutual good. Get his ideas,
and if you have anything good in that
line share It with him.
It takes no more work or footS to
feed a 700-pounds-butter-ia-a-year cow
than it does to feed the one which
produces but 200 pounds. Why not
weed out the poorer cows and get in
those which pay a good profit? A cow
ought to produce at least 300 pounds
of butter fat a year to make it worth
while keeping her, but many a farmer
is keeping cows which will not pro
duce half that.
Horticultural societies of other
states might well emulate the example
of the Indiana Horticultural society
which is making a practical effort to
encourage'the commercial fruit Indus
try of the state. It co-operates with
the farmers' short course at Purdue
university, offering cash premiums at
a fruit show which is held during the
course. The fruit business of Indiana
is still to be developed.
Get a good bull pure-bred if you
can afford it and breed up your herd.
Cornell university. New York, has
just shown what can be done in this
direction. A cow of .ordinary grade
was kept and the progeny for four
generations was tested. The cow was
producing 225 pounds of butter in a
year. By the use of a pure-bred sire
the next generation produced 275.
pound lows and in the fourth genera
tion two cows, descendants of the
original one and improved sires, made
an average of 450 pounds of butter in
a year. This ought to settle the ques
tion as to whether pure-bred or grade
animals are preferable for the dairy.
Do not reduce the fruit yield by cut
ting or breaking off the fruit spurs.
Every fruit tree will send out fruit
spurs on the sides of all the limbs
and small branches, covering the
sides and upper surface with fruit
spurs and leaf spurs from the body
of the tree to the extremity of the
branches. These should never be re
moved, yet many, with saw or hatchet,
clip off every fruit spur from the
main part of the large limbs and
small branches, leaving only a denud
ed branch. Fruit spurs are small
shoots only one or two inches long.
These should neither be cut off nor
jammed off by one's feet when pick
ing fruit. Fruit spurs produce fruit
buds in pne season for. the crop of
fruit the following season.
