Hunch put on a little pink around

"When sue yon and Alice going to

asked. "Seems to me you've been
dodging the minister about long

"I'm for a license the next minute
after I overcome Tncle William's ob
jections." Hunch answered, mourn
fully. "He says Alice is too much to
the kindergarten to leave home yet.
Say, John. I'm afraid the old gentle
'man handed out the set-back just be
cause he doesn't approve of me."
"Saw that off," 1 said; "why. you're

'Uncle William knov.s it. Alice is the

'imiuireil. "Why, somebody ought to
take you by the ear and scold you!"
"Xi. Hunch." I answered; "I sold
Peaches to Murf Higginbottom, the
trainer; soaked the rake-off in a slice
of real estate and today I'm away to
the good. Honest, Hunch. I'm now
about six blocks up Easy street, and
.walking fast. Sometimes when I think
of that little bunch of bills in the
bank 1 get so stuck on myself 1 want
to run over to Philadelphia and laugh

"Oh. slice your cake. John!" chirped
Hunch. "I've seen you with a bundle
of money before now. but the snow
drifted in the safe, nevertheless."
Hunch is the original Human Frost.
It tickles him to throw icewater on
j.he warm babies.
"It strikes me queer," P.unch went
pn after a pau?e; "that you'd sell
Peaches after she got so busy in that
big race and handed you out such a
fancy finish!"
"I didn't exactly sell Peaches." I
nnswercd. "Murf Higginbottom. the

consideration I let him have Peaches

you can bet on that. Clara J. and I
intend to save up, and at the end of
three years we'll have a heme for
Peaches, and she won't have a thing
to do but pull a six-pound dog-cart
once or twice a week, and bite her
way through all the hand-painted or.ts
she wants for life!"

"I've got a great and original idea!"
"He kind to it. Hunch; it's in a

"You say Uncle Peter is going the

"The old man is on the hot-foot,
sure thing." 1 answered. "Of course,
he's not really lik3ly to go broke be
cause he has so much money that the
only way he couid lose it all is to drop

ful to wateh him going up against the
breakers every day and having it put
all over him till his financial system
is black and blue."
"What do the home folks think
about it?" inquired Hunch.
"Up to now they aren't wise to the
fact that Uncle peter is so busy at the
bonfire!" I answeied. "There's a

"I'll be there in a minute," Bunch
replied; "first of all. John, do you
want to cure Uncle Peter or this race
track habit?"
"Don't ask me riddles. Bunch," I
snapped; "wouldn't you work overtime
to stop a dippy relative from shovel

cellar? Sure. I want to cure him;
but how? I tried to stiggest to him
quietly on several occasions that he's

Peter just cut off a cackle and said he
knew his business. I told him that a
man had to learn the horses back-

Have Is Nailed to the Floor and the
Floor Gees Into the Safe at Sun
Down." wards and sideways, going and com
ir.g. from Alpha to Omaha, before he
could hope to pull down any sure
money, bat he dismissed the subject
by saying he was on his way from
Alpha to Omaha now. and. besides, if
he wanted to pitch a bit of money
overboard, It was his own he was
ritching. What can you do with a
clothespin like that? He has the
fever. Uncle Peter has, and it will
take heroic measures to cool him off."
"How would you like to be the ice
bag?" said Bunch, quietly.
"What's the gag. Bunch? Are you
leading me up to the center so you
can ask me for a foolish answer?"
I growled.
"Xix now, John," Bunch responded;
"didn't you say a few minutees ago
that the only real breadwinner at the
track is the bookmaker?"
"That belief for mine," I answered.
"Well, why don't you take a hand
and gather in Uncle Peter's loose
change?" Bunch went en.
"I become a bookmaker!" I gasped.
"Sure," said Bunch; "isn't it the
shell road to wealth? Isn't it Cinch
into your parlor and get his roll,

you have to do is to coax Uncle Peter
After a while when the old gentle
man's fit of coughing is over and be
backs away from the fight, disgusted
and sick of it, you can hand him his
money, minus the commissions, and
give him such a shock of joyous sur
prise that he'll stand on his head and
thank you with both feet."
It sounded like a wise wheeze.
"But Uncle Peter would recognize
me, and it would be all to the frizzle,"
I cried suddenly. "Clara J. wouldn't
fancy It if she learned I was fooling
around the track again after she had
squared matters for me and put me
even. I guess I'd better let Uncle Pe
ter plod along to the poor-house," I
added, sadly.
"Xonsense, Joha," chortled Bunch.
"You don't have to appear in the mat
ter at all. Besides, I'll take a hand
m the game myself."
"You be the bookmaker, that's it;
fine. Bunch, fine!" I yelled.
"Xot exactly." he broke in; "but I
can get a fly lad named Ikey Schwartz
to stall for us. Ikey Is a member in
good standing of the Bookmakers'
Brotherhood and Burning Money
Hunters' association. I've known Ikey
for years, and. since our object is
purely philanthropic, I'm sure he'll
be glad to give us the helping mitt."
"What'll it cost to put this produc
tion on. Bunch? I'm quite willing to
rush to Uncle Peter's rescue, but I'm
not eager to sprain my ankles in so
doing." I said.
"We won't take a single chance,"
Hunch answered. "Before we go any
further. John. I must tell you that my
motives are not wholly unselfish. I've
got an idea that if I can make myself
solid with Uncle Peter he may be
induced to square me with Uncle Will
iam Gray, and thereby enable me to
lead Alice away w the little old log
csbin of our own."
"Urop that plate; it's hot. Bunch." I
said. "Uncle Peler Grant and Will-
iam Gray never speak as they pass
by. You've picked out the wrong an
swer." "I know all about that," Bunch
came back, "but Uncle William has
great faith in Uncle Peter's judgment,
just as hard. However, I'll take a
long chance on all that. How much
looc coin have you, John?"
"About $3,000 loose, besides the
bundle that's working in the real es
tate business; but that's tied up so
hard I can't get at it," I answered.
"All right," Bunch went on; "we'll
be equal partners in this deal. It'll
take about 10.000 to make the pic
ture icok right."
"What!" I yelled; "me risk $3,000
to teach Uncle Peter how to behave!
Xot on your horoscope! If Uncle Pe
ter wants to take a walk on the road
to niin I'm not going to flag him
not when it costs me $3,000 to buy the
flag, nix!"
"Wait! wait!" Bunch broke in;
"feel for the soft pedal and come back
to Quiet Valley. Didn't I tell you we
wouldn't take any chances? Do you
suppose I'm dead anxious to chop up
my money and feed it to the pigeons?
You leave this to me, and I'll guar
antee you'll save Uncle Peter and be
a hero to your family forever and
ever. Are you game? Say the word
and we'll hunt up Ikey Schwartz!"
"Light the gas. Bunch; I'm with
you." I said.
And we shook hands on it.

Want Bounty on Squirrels.
Since the bounty on squirrels was
stopped several years ago the little
pests have greatly increased in num
bers until the question of handling
thorn has become of vital importance
to the welfare of all growers of grain
and egetables.
Every fanner has to devote from
five to fifteen days each year in fight
ing squirrels, and the annual cost of
poison to each farmer averages $5.
During the operation of the former
squirrel bounty law the animals be
came quite scarce in this section, for
xen often made wages in the spring
by a systematic campaign against the
squirrels. The amount of damage
caused each year in this county by
squirrels runs into many thousands of
dollars, causing a consequent decrease
in the amount of grains, grasses and
vegetables produced and an increase I
in the cost or production. Colville

Elastic Roads in Switzerland. ;
An interesting experiment has been
made with promising results at Zu-1
rich. Fine gravel, the grains averag
ing from one-twentieth to one-twelfth
of an inch in diameter, the whole
carefully fi-eed from earthy sub
stances, was coated ia a revolving
drum with tar. These pellets were
then carefully dried and hardened, and
after eight or ten weeks were spread
during dry weather in a thick layer
upon a prepared roadbed and rolled.
The road thus formed is inexpen
sive, possesses a certain elasticity and
is said to withstand well the effects
of heavy traffic. The desirability of a
slightly elastic road for saving wear
and tear and suppressing noise is evident.

Horses should not be compelled to
wear their winter coats of hair any
longer than necessary. Farmers,, as
well as horsemen, should have their
horses clipied as soon as they are ex

Eometimes the shedding is not as fast
as it should be. Should the horse be
out of condition the shedding process
is naturally slow. He sweats badly

Clipping is both humane and sensi
