I 3y SEFTON LEE.
Jean Granby sat among the plllo\
.on the window seat. Her mother ai
?father and her aunt and uncle, wi
had come in to spend the evening, s
;around the fireplace. Jean's broth
Jack, who stood by the library tab
-puffing a cigarette, picked up the Ev
hing Argus and looked carelessly ov
Its four pages.
"Gee! A deaf and dumb and bili
man could get up more news than th
paper prints," was his sweeping erl
The thoughtless brother had give
Jean a suggestion which she thougl
over all during the evening. The ne:
morning she astonished Mr. Archiba]
Edwards by appearing In his sanctui
vand asking for a job as reporter c
"Why, Miss Granby, nothing woul
please me more if it were practicable
or even possible," stammered the su:
"Now, Mr. Edwards, first let me te
yja what a practical and possible pla
I have." Jean was convincingly I
earnest, and she made a charming ph
ture in a trim blue cheviot suit an
? Highland cap with a bit of plaid rit
bon dangling from it. Her dark eye
flashed and her color deepened as sh
?unfolded her plan, which was t
arouse the social and civic spirit c
Marshton by a persistent appee
through the Argus. There was to b
a column headed, "It's Up to You," ac
other headed, "How the Women Cai
Help," and another, "Marshton's Man;
An hour later Mr. Edwards was un
able to tell whether it was the bonni
smiles of the applicant or the plausl
bWty of her plan that had indue?
him to "take her on."
The plan worked so well that a fev
?weeks after Jean began her work 01
that paper there were many evidence
that Marshton was beginning to shaki
off its social and civic stagnation. L
the Argus office rushing activity be
came the daily program in all depart
I On the same morning that the fore
man's wife telephoned the office o
her husband's illness with the gri]
-Jilr. Edwards had a violent seizure o
lumbago. Jean faced the crisis brave
ly, but she realized the Impossibilit?
of getting the paper out in any sor
cf shape with the two mainstays o:
the machinery misting. She rem em
bered having heard Mr. Edwards saj
that his nephew, now a reporter on i
city daily, had been a most promisini
?all-round -newspaper worker when h<
Jeft the Argus office a few years be
fore. Something had to be done quick
-ly,- and Jean decided to telegraph foi
the nephew, for there wasn't an avail
able man in Marshton.
I It was then ten o'clock and the flrsl
edition should '?e out by one, so Jear
rolled up the sleeves of her soft whltt
shirtwaist, and for the next three
hours fluttered back and forth from
editorial d*sk to composing and print
ing rooms. It was 1:30 when the first
edition was out
! She was turning the damp pages of
? paper just off the press when the
office door opened and a tall, broad
.shouldered man entered the room. It
had evidently been more than a few
years since thai man had been merely
a promising ooy, yet Jean rightly
guessed that he was Mr. Edwards'
"Mr. Bert Edwards?" she asked, and
there was a slight twinkle In the man's
gray eyes as he inclined his head af
"I am Miss Granby, special writer
on the Argus, but today I've been ed
itor and foreman as well. I'm going
to ask you to take hold of the fore
, man's work at once as to get the
home edition out promptly. When
that Is done we can work together on
.tomorrow's editorial page. I've got
to give the next two hours to some
.special Interview stuff.'
Thus coolly did Jean assume the
.generalship, and the tall man accepted
the assignment without letting her
see his amused smile as he turned
.away. For the next two days, he did
.cheerfully and went about what
?should be done. On the morning of
""the third day Mr. Edwards returned
to the office.
"Bert, my boy, It was like you to
help me out In a pinch," he said, in
grating his nephew, "and Miss Gran
by, t was like you to know what to do
in an emergency. I'm glad you sert
I for Bert But how did your chief
happen to let vou off, Bert?"
"I'm pretty much my chief, Uncle
Oeorge, and I had two capable young
fellows to leave at my desk."
4tM your desk? Why, what's your
position now?" asked his uncle.
"City editor," said Bert quietly, with
\ a fleeting glance at Jean, who van
ished blushingly into the next room.
Half an hour late, when Mr. Ed
wards was deep in his accumulation
of mail, Bert encountered Jean among
some old newspaper files. She came
to him at once with her hand extended
in apology, and her shy confusion
helped to make her unusually attrac
"I hope I haven't seemed unpardon
ably priggish," she said, "giving as
signments to a superior. I was so
concerned about getting out the paper
that I lost aH sense of everything
.else for a time." Bfcrt held her hand
' and looked straight into her eyes.
"They were such agreeable assign
ments that I wish they might con
tinue indefinitely," he said

FOR SUCCESS WITH POULTRY
Ration of Mixed Grains for Growth ls
Greatly Improved by Addition
of Animal Meal.
(By C. F. BARBER.)
To give some of the most Important
facts connected with the poultry indus
try that have been settled as such, it
may be said, that there can never be
success without cleanliness; that ver
min can certainly be exterminated by
spraying roosts and walls with kero
sene; that lice on chicks can be de
stroyed with a slight application of
lard or vaseline on the head and throat ;
that chicks for laying stock must not
be hatched from the eggs of pullets;
that disease is never cured nor pre
vented by mixing blood ; that dry feed
is best for newly-born chicks, and no
Good Dry Feed Hopper.
feed better than rolled oats for the
first two weeks; with milk for drink;
that with all feeds, milk and meat
should not be omitted; that for both
growth and eggs there is no better
grain, fed singly, than oats; that
green bone cut fine, Is the best single
element for the production of eggs,
put never over one ounce a day for a
hen; that a balanced ration, moist
ened with milk, new or skimmed, is
about 25 per cent better for growth
of chicks than when moistened with
water, that a ration of mixed grains
for growth is improved about 40 per
cent by adding & proportion of about
two-fifths of animal meal, or, in other
words, It has been abundantly proved
by the most thorough tests that
growth and health will be greatly pro
moted by feeding a nitrogenous ration
instead of a carbonaceous one; that
animal meal in the ration for duck
lings will make a gain of about three
to one over a ration that is wholly
vegetable; that over 20 per cent more
food is required to make a pound of
growth on a vegetable diet than with
a ration having a mixture of meat;
that crowded yards are the source of
most of the evils to which poultry Is
liable; that a dust bath is as profit
able for hens as water brooks for
ducks, and that the buying of cheap
or imperfect birds with the intention
of "breeding up' is not profitable.
