LOVE WAS NOT BLIND
Ky George Munson.
(Copyright, 11U5, by \V. G. Chapman.)
"Julia! Is that you, dear?"
Tho Bick men stirred uneasily upon
the bed, and Julia Crothers ran out
to where ber younger sister, Dulcie,
waited upon the ?anding.
"It is terrible. I cannot stay there,"
she w hispered.
Dulcie, who had been trembling,
suddenly managed to pull herself to
gether and entered the room with a
firm tread. She went up to tho bed
"Is that you, Julia?" murmured the
sick man again.
"Yes," answered Dulcie bravely.
Two days before. Jim Rldgely, her
sister's fiance, had been struck by
lightning. Ills recovery, at first de
spaired of, now seemed assured, but
ho was blind, and thc doctors held out
no hope of his regaining his sight.
"The optic nerve ls paralyzed," they
said. "There is the barest chance,
but the cure must be a spontaneous
one, and it must happen within the
next two or three days. Unless by a
miracle that should happen, he will
be blind the rest of his life."
Julia Crothers was the boll? nf the
town, and Rldgely a rising young law
yer. Though Julia and Dulcie were
alike in speech and manner, and were
often mistaken for each other, when
side by side lt was plain that Dulcie
was only a poor Image of Julia. She
was generally considered plain: the
difference, however, existed principal
ly in Julia's dashing ways and Dulcie's
unattractive ?nd simple ones.
Poor Dulcie, whose tender heart
went out to Rldgely. knew that her
heartless sister would never dream of
marrying a blind man. She could
trace the unconscious processes la
Julia's heart even now. And it
seemed to her that she must do her
best to shield Rldgely until he recov
ered. Possibly his sight would come
back to him. and then he need never
k.iow that It was she, and not Julia,
who bad sat at his bedside all those
long hours when he- lay racked with
pain and fever.
"He ls sleeping," she told her sister,
when at last she went out to her.
"What shall I do, Dulcie?" moaned
Julia. "I cannot bear to look upon Buf
fering. What shall I do?"
Then Dulcie told her her plan. And
it worked surprisingly. A week
elapsed, and at the end of that time,
although the doctors announced that
there was now no hope of Ridgely's
ever recovering his sight, he was able
to sit up. And he had not guessed
that It was Dulcie who had sat by his
bedside and read to him in her gentle
voice. Ho had thought lt was Julia.
And in the midst of the pain Dulcie
felt to think of Ridgely's coming disil
lusionment, there was a fierce exul
tation in her heart.
For Dulcie loved Rldgely. She had
loved him from the beginning, and
now more than ever before her heart
went out to this blind man, doomed to
-be dependent throughout his life upon
tho help of others.
Rldgely had been brought Into the'
Crothers home simply because he had
no one to care for him. Old Mrs.
Crothers, a gentle old lady, alternately
dominated and petted by Julia, bad
assented to the plan with alacrity.
But when she understood Julia's Inten
tions she shook her head mournfully.
"He thinks I am Julia, mother,"
Dulcie whispered to her. "I don't
know how to tell him."
t The old lady flared up for the first
.time in many years. "If you ask me,"
oho said, tossing her head, "I think
that Jini Is well rid of her."
i "Will you tell him, motherT" asked
? "No. nfy dear. That is for you,"
said the old lady.
! And then, resolved tp end a situation
which had become unbearable. Dulcia
'ran up the stairs and Into Jim's room.
i He waa lying on the eora, locking out
;of the window with his sightless eyes.
; "Do you know, dear, that I have
neither asked nor received a kiss dur
ing the whole ot my Illness?" asked
j Dulcie blushed painfully.
r- "Jim. there is something ?hat 1
must tell you," she. stammered, seat
ing herself at his side.
< "Is lt something terrible?" he asked
gayly. "Tell nie. Julia, and let me sea

burst out. "And yet I don't know how

Cotton should be side dressed just as soon
after it is thinned out and clear of grass as can
'be done, so that the plant will get the full benefit of all this
extra fertilization and of all the early rains. It does a great
deal more good when applied early.
Fertilizer was used lightly this spring, and
side dressing will pay handsomely this year if
put on early. We are making a 6 5 2 and a 4 7 2 especially
for side dressing. You will find .it profitable to use it. It
should be applied last of May if possible, if not then early in
11 cotton is cheap the more you make to the
acre the better you are off. If cotton is high
the more you make to the acre the better you are off. For
every dollar you pay out for side dressing you get back from
three to five dollars. But apply it early. These foods are
ammoniatcd with soda, blood, tankage and fish.
