Price. "But you must take care of It,
John. How In the world "
John Hilton told him. The blenaed
strawberry, which would bear fruit all
the summer, had already been created,
six years before, by Bergback. But the
plant died, and fifty thousand cross
ings had failed to develop It again. It
was, in fact, a "sport," a cross be
tween two species that would not pro
duce fruit, though it was a simple mat
ter to Induce a luxurious growth of
loaves. John had seen the possibilities
of strawberry culture. And he, only
a commuter, tolling all day In a stuffy
insurance office, had grown this won
der. The seeds of the strawberry would
be fertile. There -was no doubt of that
But the plant had borne only one fruit,
Just as Bergback's had done. Berg
back's had died in a nipping frost that
swept down upon his plantations. But
this was June, and there was no fear
of frostB any more.
"Minna!" called John Hilton excited
ly, as ho saw the lilac ribbons of a sun
bonnet appear at the back porch.
"Minna, come here! Come at once!"
A pretty little woman made her way
toward the excited pair. ,Mtnna Hilton

Henry Price was an old bachelor,
and reputed to be a woman-hater. His
affection for John, whom he had known
a good many years, hod managed to
survive John's marriage. In time he
even brought himself to the point of
feeling at homo when he called. But
bis distrust and fear of womankind
had never left him; and then, too, he
had never overcome his feeling of
Jealousy toward the woman who had
come to share John's life.
"Don't tell her, John," he whispered,
covertly. "If she knew that strawberry
was worth a fortune "
"I know what you want to show me,
dear," said Minna. "It's that funny
speckled strawberry, Isn't it? I no

"Yes, my dear," -answered John In a
choking voice. "And please remember
I that it is to bo preserved very care

enough he was angry with Price. What
right had the old fogy insinuating that
Minna was "
I He knew why he was angry. Prico
had suggested that Minna was mental

She turned on her heel a little huffily
and John surmised that she had seen
Price's nudge. Minna was not very
fond of Henry Price; she tolerated
him for her husband's sake.
"John," said Price, as he stood at
the door, saying good-by, "I'm sorry If
I accidentally "
"O, that's all right, old man," an
swered John. His good humor was
completely restored by that time; he
never bore grudges very long4

Certainly It did seem as though the
only safety lay In absolute silence. The
single fruit was Invaluable. Berg
back's experiments had shown con
clusively that the blended strawberry
would produce fruit only from the
seed, not from the runners. And there
had been only one fruit thus grown.
The fruit was to be plucked as care
fully as though It were the last hair
from the Buddha's head, and placed In
a pot, and Price was to convey it to a
It was, In short, a remarkable con
spiracy against one poor strawberry.
Thursday was the day set for the ex-
perlment, and on that afternoon Price
came to tea. Minna made them have
tea beforo going into the garden. But
both men were too much absorbed In
thought to eat much. In vain Minna
tempted them with her scones and
"Won't you try a little more of my

"You know, it was you and Johnny
who are responsible for lti"
"How is that, my dear?" John asked.
"Why, I've made it from the best
fruit in the garden," sho answered,
"and I put the blended strawberry In,

out Into the halfand thrust on his hat.
A moment later the garden gate
slammed to behind him.
This sound, indicative of his final de
parture, relieved the tension of the sit
uation. Minna put her head down
upon her folded arms. John rose up
awkwardly and came behind her and
put his arms about her.
"Never mind, dear," he said. "It was
my fault, and you couldn't have

Minna's face, but she was not crying;
she was laughing hysterically.

"Not true! You didn't put the blend

"No. It's still there -where' it was
growing. But I Just wanted to pay
that old Henry Prico for being so
mean. You see, I heard what he said,
"Minna," said John, solemnly, five
minutes later, when he had satisfied
himself that the straberry was really
there, "I guess things have been
evened up now. You'll forgive old
Henry, won't you? And we'll ask him
to tea tomorrow."
"All right, dear," answered Minna
"And -we won't say any more about

EASY TO DEFEAT THIS ENEMY
Peril That Lurks In the Unwashed
Hand Is Great, but There Is
One Way to Safety.
Just a minute please the most dan
gerous and vicious enemy of the home,
the family and civilized society has
again been discovered lurking in its
lair or something equally as bad.
Every now and then, you know, this
dangerous enemy Is run to earth and
exposed like a gopher with a fox ter
rier nt its heels and the home, the
family and modern society are rescued
In the nick of time, like the maiden
torn from the burning building by tho
picture show, says the Detroit Free
Press. On this occasion Dr. C. E.
Langworthy of Washington tells us
that the most dangerous enemy of our
lares and penates and other Institu
tions is the human band, because the
band spreads germs, especially when
used In a none too clean state in tho
preparation of food. Diseases thus
spread are likely to dash us on tho
rocks of oblivion or some other 1m
movable, Inert object, see?
Lancworthv does not en ho far ns in
suggest amputation of unclean hands
I when found In the possession of cooks.
That would be rather too radical,
wouldn't it? He merely gently intl -
mates that to abolish this peril to
society, health and happiness cooks
would do well to cultivate the custom
of frequently bathing their hands in
clean, pure water diluted with an alka-
line mixture known as soap. Easy,
Isn't It? And the remedy is procur-
able almost anywhere at an expense
so small as to be within the reach of
the leanest purse.

The man in the chair lowered his
hands and searched for a match to

he hadn't a word to say. He smoked
and looked around in a careless way,
and finally Bill remarked:
"Hev yo nuthin' to say, Charlie?"
"Nuthin', 'cept thar won't be any

A man advanced, took the lantern
and held it up to the prisoner's face,
and then cried out:
"Waal, you are a nice crowd ! That's
no more Tenderfoot Charlie than I be!
Don't nobody kick that bar'l!"

as he came forward.
