I had just finished when Dr.
Pettit came out from the other room
and hurried me away rather uncere
moniously with the announcement
that he wished to get to the South
amnton hosnital within the next
hour. I am always' flurfied when I,
am hurried, and the annoying result
was' that we had gtfne perhaps half
a mile when I made the discovery
that I had left my purse at the
Ticers. Dr. Pettit made no com
ment, but turned his cat. quickly
around and we sped back in record
As we turned into the yard we al
most collided with another run
about also headed toward the house,
and with a quick thrill of dismav I
recognized Harry Underwood in the
driver's seat of the other car.
How Madge Managed a Disconcert
ing Meeting.-
Dr. Pettit was so' intent upon his
own car that he had not noticed the
driver of the other runabout which
had so nearly collided with us as we
re-entered the ramshackle gateway
of the Ticer farm. But Harry Under
woodfwho appears to do his devil-may-care
motr driving equally well
with one hand or two. had taken in
every detail of the physician's car
and its occupants before he turned
off his engine, "V
I shivered slightly as I methis
brilliant, mocking eyes, read in
them astonishment, resentment at
my being anywhere in 'Dr: Pettit's
company I recalled with dread the
old animosity between the two men
and most of all the malicious de
termination to do everything he
could to make the next few min
utes uncomfortable ones.
"Upon my wordl" he drawled,
lounging toward us. and I had never
Seen his well-knit, lithe figure show
to -better advantage than in the light
tweeds he wore. "If it isn't 'My Lady
Fair!' And the dear doctfcr, tool
How are you, Doc? Are you prac
tising down in this neck of the
woftds or are you here simply as
escort for theiittle lady here?"
I was sure that he knew all about
the young physician's, residence in
the village, and that his inquiries,
his mimicry of the country folk ap
pellation of 'Doc,' his general, mock
ing, patronizing air were simply so
many strpkes of the stiletto with
which he hoped to goad thr phy
sician into anger. In the same list
also belonged his attitude and lazy
smile as he strolled up to the other
man and held out his hand.
. When Enemies Meet.
Drr Pettit's face was white with
anger, his lips compressed into a
tight and thin tine. As Mr. Under
wood extended his hand the phy
sician put his deliberately behind
his back. ' '
"You will excuse me from taking
your : hand," he said between his
teeth," then-turned to me, speaking
his words slowly, measuredly, evi
dently with great effort. "If you will
kindly get your purse in a hurry
Mrs. Graham you need not be de
tained here long."
' "Ain't you the kind, sweet thing,
though?" Mr. Underwood gibed, to
all - appearances perfectly unper
turbed by the other's insult. But I
had seen his eyec contract at the
physician's words and gesture, and
knew that -only my presence had
prevented Harry Underwood from
expressing his resentment in a
blow. ,
A Hasty Explanation.
He was in perfect condition phy
sically, and I knew, that in any con
test his powerful frame would be
much more than a match for the
slighter, weaker frame of the physi
cian.' But there was a potential ex
plosion in the blazing eyes of the
younger man, and I unobtrusively
stepped between the two men as
Mr. Underwood turned to me.
"What wind of good luck blew
you out to our interesting friend,
Mrs. Ticer s, Lady Fair? he asked,
and there was a significance in his
manner which made me remember
the last time I had seen him, and
the assurance he had given me that
he was "strictly on the job" in my
service. I felt unaccountably that
I must answer him truthfully. '
"Lillian wished me to get some
data from Mrs. Tier in regard to
the man we saw that day, so I came
out from Marvin today, found no
taxis running, and if it had not been
for accidentally discovering Dr.
Pettit I should have been compelled
to walk here."
I do' not know why I added the
explanation' concerning my being in
Dr, Pettit's car. ' My errand to
Tirer'siwas in one sense his busi-
kness, for I had a shrewd suspicion
that he was also trailing the elusive
Jake Wilsey. But the look in his
eye's, half-mocking, half-coldly, sus
picious, brought the justifying ex
planation out against my will.
His face cleared, but the mocking
laughter remained.
"Lucky Docl" he said, then --low
ered his voice. "Better trade es
corts! No? Well, you always
were a croo-el dame. Andbesidcs,
I ve got to interview Mrs. Ticer my
self. Did you find her loquacious?"
"Sufficiently, I said, smiling,
YoulQ you mind, it you re going
in. asking her to send out the purse
I left here? Oh, here she is now
with it! Thank you st much, Mrs.
Ticer. I'm so careless. Good-bye.
Mr. . Underwood. - I am ready, Dr,
Pettit." -
I had not dared to leave the two
men together, and I drew a long
breath of relief vhen Dr. Pettit
and I started off in "the car, espe
"ciallv as " Harry Underwood took
occasion' to call out mockingly from

Hunting Eye Saves Crew.
As soon as the people on board
the ship had pulled the line aboard,
the', coastguardsmen attached a
heavy block, like a pully, to the end
of the rope and the shipwrecked
sailors dragged it aboard. There
was a rope running through the
pulley, both, ends being ashore. The
sailors fastened this block to the
stump of the broken mast."
Then the coastguardsmen fastened
a curious contrivance that looked
like a life-belt with a very strong
pair of short canvas breeches to one
end,-of the line and pulled it out to
the ship.
"Come on, lad, and give a hand,"
said one of them, and HuntingEye
added his sturdy ' strength to the
haul on the rope.
Presently,- through the surf and
spray, two .of. the crew were hauled
safely to the shore. The breeches

buoy was hauled back again for 20
trips, until every man was safe.
"How did you kn.ow about the
wreck?" asked Hunting Eye.
The coastguardsman smiled at
"Every foot of the United States
coast is patrolled every night, and
all night long, and, " in stormy
weather, all day long, too, by we
coastguardsmen," he answered.
"There's a life saving station about
every seven miles along the beach.
A ship couldn't run ashore without
our knowing about it.
"When the ship is near the shore,
we fire a line over it and -save the
shipwrecked people with a breechesd
buoy, like you ve seen; but when
the ship is too far away we have to
go out in our lifeboats."
"In the big waves?"
"In the biggest waves there are.
Sometimes our men never come
back. That's dangerous work, but
fortunately we don't have to, go out
often. It's wofth while work,
though. Every captainwho com

For Girls to Make
-Bringing the Woods Home.
Now that the out-door days are
really here, and the nicest thing that
you and the otfier girls can do is to
go for a hike, why not bring, back
some treasures from the woods? A
walk is a lot more fun when it has
a definite object.
Your yard or your piazza can be
made much more beautiful with
woodsy things than with devices
bought in a sirop. Besides, you
have the fun of making it. Also
you have the muclu bigger fun of
feeling that your efforts have
brought about 'this beauty. Cones,
mosses, fungi arid many other forest
growths are in the woods, wafting
foY you. . '
All sorts and sizes of cones cover
the ground. Gather and sort some
of these. Dry them thoroughly.
Then glue tbem' as a border or cov
ering for a flower box or for the
rustic basket in the front yard that
holds vines. With them you can
decorate that old stump, around
which the crimson rambler climbs.
An ordinary wooden bowl on
which you have glued a covering ol
small cones is a beautiful receptacle
for -growing ferns or nasturtiums.
Cover the outside of the bowl, bore
a few holes'in the bottom for drain
age, fill with rich earth and plant in
it what you like.
Did you notice that big, tough
piece of fungus that has attached
itself to the pasttlre fence? In the
woods you will find others, even
bigger, and of vivid colors. Cut
them off with a blunt knife, bring
them home and fasten them by
means of small brackets to the
piazza posts or to tree trunks in
tlje garden. They will make- a
woodsy stand on ahich to put one
of the little rustic flower pots you
have made. arAd will be unique as
well as attractive.

When the new family of geese
had been taken' care of, and. the
fresh milk had been put away to
ccol, Vrouw. Vedder got out her
churn and scalded it well. Then she
put in her cream, and put the cover
down over the handle of the dasher.
"Now. Kit and Kat, you may take
turns," she said, "and see which one
of you-can bring the butter, but be
sure you weVk the dasher very even-,
ly or the butter will not be good."
Me first! said Kat, and she be
gan.. Kit sat on. a little stool and
watched for the butter.
Kat worked the dasher up and
dewn. The cream splashe"d and
splashed inside the xhurn.f and a
little white ring of splatters, came
up around the dasher.
Kat worked until her arms ached.
"Now, it's my turn," said Kit.
Then he took the dasher, and" the
cream splashed and splashed for
quite a long time; but still the but
ter did not come.
"Ho!" said Kat. "You're nothing
but a boy. Of course you don't know
hew to churn. Let me try." And she
took her turn.
Dash! Splash 1 Splash, dash! She
worked away; and very soon, around
the dasher, there was a ring of lit
tle specks of butter.
"Come, butter, come! Come, but
ter, come! '
Scme for a honey" cake, and some
for a bun."
she sang iii time to the dasher; and
truly, when Vrouw Vedder opened
the churn, there was .a large cake of
yellow butter!
Vrouw Vedder took out the butter
and worked it into a nice roll Then
she gave each of the twins a cup of
buttegnilk to drink.
While the twins drank the but
termilk,' their mother' washed Jrhe

was all through, It was still quite
early in the "morning, because they
had gotten up with the sun.

she said. - . 1 x
So she got out. her scrubbing

First she shook out the pillows of
the best bed, that nobody ever slept
in, and pushed back the curtains so
that the ernbroidered coverlet could
be seen. Then she put the other beds
in order and drew the . curtains-in
front of them. "
She dusted the linen press and
left it open just a little, so that her
beautiful rolls of white linen tied
with ribbons, would show. Kat dust

brass ijugs outside the kitchen door
to be polished. v

Do Onions Make People Weep?
Copyright, 1150, by tha Wheeler Syn
dicate. " - . )
The "gas" given off by a fresh
ly peeled onion makes "itself ap
parent in two ways. Firstly, by
a very strong aroma which is at
once apparent to the sense of
smell, and also by a smarting of
eyeballs which, being extremely
sensitive, are hurt by this sub
stance to which they are not ac
customed. The nerves of the eye
immediately signal the brain to
turn on the tears or liquid which
is secreted by the body as a nat
ural and continual eye wash.
This, flowing over the eyeball,
forms a sort of curtain which
prevents the onion "gas" from
coming in direct contact with
the nerves , and v thus " injuring
them. "
Tears are present in the eye at
all times. Whenever we wink, a
tiny drop of the- tear-liquid is
smeared across the ball of the
eye and washes, off particles of
dust which may have accumulat
ed. . But when this liquid is pro
duced so rapidly that it cannot
be carried off by the trough at
the' lower part of the eye when,
through sadness or onions, we
"weep" the tears' overflow and
run down 'the face. '
