As we turned lh- corner I la'iffd

When he saw me he slopped and pro
ceeded with great deliberation to light

caught the ctir that we took, and stood
unobtrusively on the rear platform.
He looked fagged, and absent-mindedly
paid cur fares, to McKnight's de
light. "We will give him a run for his
money." he dech.red. as the car moved
counlryward. "Conductor, let us off
nt the muddiest lane you fan find."
At one o'clock, after a six-mile ram
ble, we entered a small country hotel.
We had seen nothing of Johnson for a
half hour. At tr-at titne he was a
quarter of a mile h.'hiud us. and losing
rapidly, liefore we had finished our
luncheon he s-laggtred into the inn.

"I'm just getting my second wind,"
.McKnight declared. "How do you feel,
Mr. Johnson? Six or eight miles more
and we'll all enjoy our dinners." John
son put down the glass he had raised
to his lips without replying.
The fact was-, however, that I was
like Johnson. I was soft from my

to have a Sresh mind on it: I had puz

thought 1 would settle it, one way or

we caught the car back to town.

never far back in my mind.

elaborate carelessness. "I don't want
you to get a wrong impression. I am
rather unlikely to see her again, but
even If I do, I I believe she is al

He made no reply, but as I opened
the door with my latch-key he
stood looking up at me from the pave

At noon I left the office and took a
veterinarian to 6ce Candida, the in
jured pony. Hy one o'clock my first
day's duties were performed, and a
leng Sahara of hot afternoon
stretched ahead. McKnight, always
glad to escape from the grind, sug
gested a vaudeville, and in sheer
ennui I consented. I could neither
ride, drive nor golf, and my own com
pany borr-d me to distraction.
"Coolest place in town these days,"
he declared. "Electric fans, breezy
songs, airy costumes. And there's
Johnson just behind the coolest
proposition in Washington."
He gravely bought three tickets and
presented the detective with one.
Then we went in. Having lived a nor
iral, busy life, the theater in the aft-
moon is to me about on a par with
ice cream for breakfast. Jp on the

calm, for no one turned to stare at
me, but every atom of me cried out
at the sight of her. She was lean

gazing raptly at the Japanese con
jurer who had replaced what -McKnight
disrespectfully called the Col

draggled lady of the farm house, she
For that first moment there was
nothing but joy at the sight of her.
McKnight's touch on my arm brought
me back to reality.
"Come over and meet them," he
said. "That's the cousin Miss West
is visiting. Mrs. Dallas."
Hut I would not go. After he went
I sat there alone, painfully conscious
that I was being pointed out and
stared at from the box. The abomin
able Japanese gave way to yet more
atrocious performing dogs.
"How many offers of marriage will
the joung lady in the box have?" The
dog stopped sagely at "none," and
then pulled out a card that said eight.
Wild shouts of glee by the audience.
"The fools," I muttered.
After a little I glanced over. Mrs.
Dallas was talking to McKnight. but
she was looking straight at ine. She
was flushed, but more calm than I,
and she did not low. I fumbled for
my hat, but the next moment I saw
that they were going, and I sat still.
When McKnight came back he was
"I've made an engagement for you."

(Stogie is his Japanese factotum, so

brown in color, and because he claims
to have been shipped into this country
in a box.)
The cinematograph was finishing
the program. The house was dark and
the music had stopped, as it does in
the circus just before somebody risks
his neck at so much a neck in the dip
of death, or the hundred-foot dive.
Then, with a sort of shock, I saw on
the white curtain the announcement:

Now it was on us, a mammoth In
size, with huge drivers and a colossal
tender. The engine leaped aside, as
if just in time to save us from de
struction, with a glimpse of a stoop
ing fireman and a grimy engineer. The
long train of sleepers followed. From
a forward vestibule a porter in a
white coat waved his hand. The rest
of the cars seemed still wrapped in
slumber. With mixed sensations I
saw my own car, Ontario, fly past,
and then I rose to my feet aud
gripped McKnight's shoulder.
On the lowest step of the last car,
one foot hanging free, was a man. His
black derby hat was pulled well down
to keep it from blowing away, and his
coat was flying open In the wind. He
was swung well out from the car. his
free hand gripping a small valise,
every muscle tense for a jump.
"Ccod God. that's my man!" I said
hoarsely, as the audience broke into
applause. McKnight half rose; in his
seat ahead Johnson stilled a yawn and
turned to eye i:u

tried tu control my excitement. "The

I said. "He was just about to leap;
I'll swear that was my bag."
-Could you see his face?" McKnight
asked in an undertone. vould you j
know him again?
"No. His hat was pulled down and
his head was bent. I'm going back to
find out where that picture was ta
ken. They say two miles, but it may
have been forty."
The audience, busy with its wraps,
had not noticed. Mrs. Dallas and Al

"Well?" he said, wheeling on ' us.
"What can I do for you?"
"I would like to ask," I replied, "if
you have any idea just where the last

"Hroken board picnickers lako?"
"No. The Washington Flier."

I had not realized the extent of the
shock, but now I dropped into a chair
and wiped my forehead. The unex
pected glimpse of Alison West fol
lowed almost immediately by the rev
elation of the picture, had left me
limp and unnerved. McKnight was
looking at his watch.
"He says the moving picture peo

make it if we go on now."
So he called a cab, and we started
at a gallop. There was no sign of

but to send McKnight's Jap for my

my next day's investigations without

MORE POTATOES BY SPRAYING
For a good many years the general

Kansas Ponltry Raiser Has Dis
covered and Put Into Practice
Means of Preventing Largo
Mortality Anions' Chicks.
A well-known Kansas CKy poultry
man, Ernest Kellerstrass, has discov
ered and put into practise a new
means of preventing the common
large mortality of brooder chicks. The
remedy Is so simple that at first
thought it appears almost ridiculous.
It consists only in the use of black
soil in the floor of the brooder.
Mr. Kellerstrass by accident, two or
three years ago, noticed that a piece of
Bod placed on the floor of a brooder
was quickly worked on by the chicks.
They stood on it and scratched on lc
in preference to the wooden floor of
the brooder. The entire floor of the
brooder was then covered with sod.
and it was found that the chicks on
the sod covered floor were stronger, j

Piece. The petals looked like heavy
silk velvet, and the blooms were as
large as my tubers produced. Some
of the others were equally as beauti
ful, one being a magenta, with the
back of the petals striped in white;
another was a fawn shade and very
odd; another was yellow outlined on
each petal with red. and still an
other was a peculiar shade bordering
on a brick-dust color, the back of the
petals being yellow. This combination
was perfectly beautiful, and thought

plants, and every one was a gem.
uients. there was shown an average
gain per acre, due to spraying, of 66
bushels. The average net co3t of
spraying per acre was 84 cents and
the average price of potatoes at dig
ging time was 60 cents per bushel. A
little mental arithmetic makes It self
evident that it pays to spray.
Milk as a Food.
Analyses prove that one quart of
milk containing five per cent, butter

Poa straw is well liked by sheep

The idea of Mr. Kellerstrass is that
board floors are too hard and un
natural for the feet of young chicks,
and that soil is a soft and natural floor
for them. By standing on the board
floor the chicks acquire leg weakness
that results in the white bowel trouble
and a general weakening of the young
birds. With loose, dry soil as a floor
the chicks will early learn to scratch

and hence more resistent to disease.
