Joan made a swift dnrt and with
tho agility of a squirrel climbed Into
the topmost branches of her favorite
tree. There she sighed happily, then

white petals that her ascent brought
"Now 1 nm monarch of all I stir-

nettled herself In the seruro scat the
gardener had made for her.
Because their orchard wns only a
sixteenth part of the original orchard
that hnd been the pride of the one
time I.amberth estate, It was not
walled n, but merely inclosed by
hawthorn hedges. Joan regretted
that necessity had called for a divi
sion of the propetty, yet Fhe rejoiced
that the lot which her grandmother
hnd purchased possessed the most
beautiful tree In the entire orchard.
, Sho gazed out oter the vtstn of
pink nnd white, and from her high
Mtrch could sec the various winding
lanes that divided the properties.
Suddenly she leaned forward, her
eyes focused upon a figure thnt was
moving about among the private, gar
dens. "He must be trespassing," was
Joan's mental comment. "I have nev

Sho watched him Intently, half out

toward a specific tree and make nu-
Imerous circuits about its base.
Joan began to fear for his sanity
jand for her own safety. Certainly
:4a actions were not those of an
'evenly balanced man. She felt rc.v
sonably sure that neither an Insane
jnor a sane man would catch sight of
Iher In her bower of thick foliage, but
jber heart beat rapidly.
"You nover can tell," she told her
jself "what any man is likely to see."
With considerable, trepidation she
watched tho man drawing gradually
nearer and nearer to her retreat.
Would he or would ho not venture
(within her grandmother's prlvnto or-
ichnrd? Joari felt reasonably sure now
that tho trespasser waB mentally un
balanced. "He is coming in!" Joan caught a
sharp breath and drew up Into tho
branches of her tree. He seemed to
catch sight of the great tree the
moment ho stood within the arch
and made straight for It. As he came
forward, Joan again drew a quick
breath. The man was undoubtedly
good to look at and his shoulders
were big and broad. He had taken
off his cap and the aun shone on a
head of thick, red-brown hair. Joan's
grandmother had a miniature of a
man with Juit such a head of hair.

"Your grandfather's tree. Indeed!
It Is my very own grandmother's tree

back at her.

FLINT LOCKS STILL IN USE
Old-Fashioned Muskets Remain Prin
cipal Weapons of Many Natives
In African Jungles.
Old flint-lock muskets are still the
principal weapons of hordes of natives
over vast tracts of Africa. The exis
tence of these ancient arms keeps
alive a steady demand for gun flints,
a dtmand which Is supplied from the
little Norfolk village of Brandon,
where there are flint pits which have
been worked, as remains found estab
lish, for at least 30 centuries. The
business Is a hereditary one. Large
masses of flint are got out of the quar
ries and then flaked or split (the proc
ess being termed "knapping") la or
der to get at the core, which alone Is
used. The workmen place the flint
upon a pad upon their left leg and tap
it with 'a short, heavy hammer. Four
fifths ot the flint thus dealt with la
waste, but of the remainder gun flints,
carbine flints and pistol flints are still
manufactured, while tlnderbox flints
are prepared for the shepherds of the
remoter parts of Spain and Italy.

lovingly over Virginia's glossy curls,
