Investigations which have been car
ried on for several years in Rhode
Island show that the disease known
as "black head" in turkeys is spread
ing to all parts of the country and
that chickens as well as turkeys may
become victims. No certain cure has
yet been discovered for this disease
which has so ravaged the turkey-producing
states of the East.
Much has been said and written
about the importance of keeping dairy
utensils perfectly i-leau, but not so
much about the churn, and if proper
care is not exercised in keeping the
churn sweet and clean, the butter
will be tainted, no matter how well
the milk has been cared for before
being ready for the churn.
It is well to remember that the
pigs must be kept growing from the
start if results are to be satisfactory,
and If the sows and pigs are fed an
insufficient or unsuitable ration until
the work Is out of the way bo there
will be time to devote more attention
to them, a valuable opportunity will
be lost to the owner.
A distinct flavor of ihe soil has
been noticed in butter by French ex

not suprising. I thought, that she
cared for him: women had always
loved him. perhaps because he al
ways loed them. There was no dis
loyalty in the thought: it was the
lad's nature to give and crave affec

never really cared about a girl be
fore, aud my life had been singularly
loveless. I had fought a lonely bat

we had both laid ourselves and our
callow devotions at the feet of the

membered the sequel. In a spirit of
quixotic youth I had relinquished my'
claim In favor of Kichey aud had
gone cheerfully on my way. elevated
by my heroic sacrifice to a somber
white-hot martyrdom. As is often the
case. McKnight's first words showed
our parallel lines of thought. '
"I say. Lollie." he asked, "do you re

That was it!"
"Dorothy Browne?" I repeated. "Oh
why yes. 1 recall her now. Why?"
"Nothing." he said. "1 was think

and dropped back because she pre
"I got out." I said with diguity. "be
cause you declared you would shoot
yourself if she didn't go with you to
something or other!"
"Oh. why yes. I recall now!" he
mimicked, lie tossed his cigarette
in the general direction of the hearth
and got up. We were both a little
couscious, and he stood with his back
to me. lingering a Japanese vase on
"I was thinking." he began, turning
the vase around, "that, if you feel
pretty well again, and and ready to
take hold, that 1 should like to go
away for a week or so. Things are
fairly well cleaned up at the office."
"Do you mpan you are going to
Richmond?" I asked, after a scarcely
perceptible pause. He turned and
faced me. with his hands thrust in
"No. That's off. Lollie. The
Seiberts are going for a week's cruise
along the coast. 1 the hot weather
has played bob with i:ie and the cruise
means seven days breeze and bridge."
1 lighted a cigarette and offered
him the box. but he refused. He was
looking haggard and suddenly tired.
I could not think of anything' to say,
and neither could ho. evidently. The
matter between us lay too deep for
"How's Candida?" he asked.
"Martin says a month, and she will
be all right." I returned, in the same
tone. He picked up his hat. but, he
had something more to say. He
blurted it out. finally, half way to the
"The Seiberts are not going for a
couple of days." he said, "aud if you
want a day "or so off to go down to
Richmond yourself "
"Perhaps I shall." I returned, as in
differently as I could. "Not going yet.
"Yes. It is late"' He drew in his
breath as if he had something more
to say, but the impulse passed. "Well,
good night," he said from the door
way. "iiood night, old man."
T'ne nest moment, the outer door
shimmed and I heard the tnglne of
the Cannor.ball throbbing in the
street. Then the quiet settled down
around me again, and there in the
lamplight I dreamed dreams. I was
going to see her.
Suddenly the idea of being shut
away, even temporarily, from so great
and wonderful a world became intol
erable. The possibility of arrest be
fore I could get to Richmond was
hideous, the night without eud.
I made my escape the next mom-
ice throueh the stable back of the?
house, and then, by devious dark and
winding ways, to the office. There,
after a conference with Blobs, whose
features fairly jerked with excite

private office and finished off some

he suggested ferociously. I left him
there with his blood-thirsty schemes,
and started for the station. I had a
tendency to look behind me now aud
then, but I reached the station unno
ticed. The afternoon was hot, the
train rolled slowly along, stopping to
paut at sweltering btations, from
whose roofs the heat rose In waves.
But I noticed these things objectively,
not subjectively, for at the end of the
journey was a girl with blue eyes and
dark brown hair, hair that could

I telephoned as soon as I reached
my hotel, and I had nut known how

until I learned that she was out of
town. I hung up the receiver, almost
dizzy with disappointment, and it was
fully live minutes before I thought of
calling up again and asking if she
was within telephone reach. It
seemed she was down on the bay stay
ing with the Samuel Forbeses.
Sammy Forbes! It was a name to
conjure with just then. In the old
days at college I had rather flouted
him. but now 1 was ready to take him
to my heart. I remembered that he
had always meant well, anyhow, and
that he was explosively generous. I
called him tip.
"By the fumes of gasoline! " he said,
when I told him who I was. "Blake
ley. the Fount of Wisdom against
Woman! Blakeley. the Great Un
kissed! Welcome to our city!"
Whereupon he proceeded to urge
me to come down to the Shack, and
to say tiiat 1 was an agreeable sur
prise, because four times in two
hours youths hud called up to ask if
Alison West was stopping with hint,
and to suggest that they had a vacant
day or two.
"Oh Miss West!" I shouted polite
ly. There was a buzzing on the line.
"Is she there?-'
Sam had no suspicions. Was not
I in his mind always the Great Un
kissed? which sounds like the Great
Unwashed and is even more of a re
proach. He asked me down promptly,
as I had hoped, and thrust aside my
"Nonsense." he said. "Bring your
self. The lady that keeps my boarding-house
is calling to me to insist.
You remember Dorothy, don't you.
Dorothy Browne? She says unless
you have lost your figure you can
wear my clothes all right. All you
need here is a bathing suit for day
time and a dinner coat for evening."
"It sounds cool." I temporized. "If
you are sure I won't put you out
very well. Sam, since you and your
wife are good enough. I have a
couple of days free. Give my love to
Dorothy until I can do it myself."
Sam met me himself and drove me
out to the Shack, which proved to be
a substantial house overlooking the
water. On the way he confided to me
that lots of married men thought they
were contented when they were mere
ly resigned, but that it was the only
life, and that Sam, junior, could swim
like a duck. Incidentally, he said that
Alison was his wife's cousin, their re
spective grandmothers having, at
proper intervals, married the same
man. a--l that Alison would lose her
good loflKs if she was not careful.
"I say she's worried, and I stick to
It," he said, as he threw the lines to
a groom and prepared to get out. 1
"You know her, and she's the kind of
girl you think you can read like a
book. But you can't; don't fool your
self. Take a good look at her at din
ner. Blake; you won't lose your head
like the other fellows and then tell
me what's wrong with her. We're
mighty fond of Allie."
He went ponderously up the steps,
for Sam had put on weight since I
knew him. At the door he turned
around. "Do you happen to know the
MacLure's at Seal Harbor?" he
asked irrelevantly, but Mrs. Sam
came into the hall just then, both
hands out to greet me. and. whatever
Forbes had meant to say, he did not
pick up the subject again.
"We are having tea in here." Doro
thy said gaily. Indicating the door
behind her. "Tea by courtesy, be
cause I think tea is the only bever
age that isn't represented. And then
we must dross, for this is hop night
at the club."
"Which is as great a misnomer as
the tea." Sam put in. ponderously
struggling out of his linen driving
coat. "It's bridge night, and the only
hops are in the beer."
He was still gurgling over this as
he took me upstairs. He showed me
my room himself, and then began the
fruitless search for evening raiment
that kept me home that night from
the club. For 1 couldn't wear Sam's
clothes. That was clear, after a per
spiring seance of a half hour.
"I won't do it. Sam." I said, when I
had draped his dress-coat on me toga
fashion. "Who am I to have clothing
to spare, like this, when many a poor
chap hasn't even a cellar door to
cover him. I won't do it; I'm selfish.

George. "If a thousand soldiers are

Nobody could see why. But George

"In the same way," he remarked, "if

Though he tried to explain this by
placing a visiting card on an orange

the statement. She could not see that

either. She turned down Granger this
afternoon, the Annapolis fellow you
met on the stairs, pigeon-breasted
chap and she always gets a head
ache on those occasions."
He got up heavily and went to the
door. "Granger is leaving." he said.
"I may be able to get his dinner coat

he asked, with his hand on the knob.
"If you mean Dolly T

"Not as well as I would like to. I

Forbes touched a" bell instead of go
ing out, and told the servant who an
swered to see If Mr. Granger's suit
case had gone. If not, to bring it
across the hall. Then he came back
to his former position on the bed.
"You see, we feel responsible for
Allie near relation and all that." he
began pompously. "And we can't talk

the men are in love with her. and all
the women are jealous. Then there's

What do you make of that? And that
isn't the worst. Allie herself wasn't
in the room, but there were eight
other women, and because Dolly had
put belladonna in her eyes the night
before to see how she would look, and
as a result couldn't see anything near

Being so near her, tinder the same

Made Oliver Herford Famous.
Oliver Herford first sprang into fame
as a wit so long ago as when Mrs.
James Brown-Potter, whose husband
was a near relative of the late Bishop
Potter, created a sensation by relin
quishing home and family to go upon
the stage. While the sensation was at
its height the bishop, who felt that
disgrace had been brought upon the
Potter name by the lady's choice of a
career, chanced at a dinner at the
Players club In New York to challenge
anyone present to make a joke about
him that was not a pun based on the
verb "to potter." Herford's response.
"Actresses will happen in the best reg
ulated families" won him the laurel
wreath of the club and it has not yet
gone out of his possession. Frank M.
