on ono shoulder and her liulr. braided
In n tight little pigtail, tied with
white twlno, hail net been combed
and brushed that day. Her pale blue
eye.i Hashed murderously at her op
ponent, who was shock-headed, dirty
faced and wide of mouth.
"You Just say that again " ho
Clara said It.
Thereupon tho boy rushed at her,
prabl-ed one wrist nud twisted It
ferociously, meanwhile yanking her
tow hair with the other hand. Clara
was no docile victim. She saved her
breath and kicked with all her might,
but pain nt last conquered her. Aa
Tom Kller gave ono final, nwful
wrench to her wrist and hurled her
from him against tho fence she shut
her eyes tight to keep from shriek
In the dlstanco she heard hla re
treating footsteps nnd yells of deri
sion. When he had turned tho corner
she opened her eyes, moaned a trlllo
and blinked at her hand. Already the
wrist was swelling from tho sprain
nnd her head throbbed from the yank
ing her hair had received. Clara's
brows grew dark and lowering as sho
stared at the corner which had swal
lowed up her assailant. Her expres
sion boded 111 for Tom Kller. i
Then she straggled on toward home,
holding her wrist and paying no at
tention to the tears which ran down
her checks and made little pathways
through the day's dust,
"I bet," she said onco with convic
tion, "I bet he broke it! It feels like
It an' It wabbles sol"
Home was up some stairs in the
rear. Her mother did not look up as
Clara entered, being busy as usual
over her perpetual washtub.
"You take up the baby," she or
dered mechanically. As the crying
kept on she whirled about heavily,
"I can't." Clara told her, holding
out her swollen wrist. "Tom Kller,
ho dono It"
'When you get licked I lick you
again," her mother promised.
Clara went out upon the stairs and
her face was ugly. This, too, had
Tom Kller done to her. Vengeance,
was growing in a flood. Resides the
present pain there was the whipping
promised her, and her mother never
failed in her promise. Clara slowly
descended the stairs shiverine.
She edged along out of the blast
and looked at her wrist dubiously In
the distance nhe heard yells betoken
ing warfare, and among them she
distinguished Tom Klier's shrill
She began looking for a weapon
and pounced on a small but Jagged j
stone, which she clutched with a
tasto of her coming triumph. She and i
Tom had had frequent quarrels that

this of today was the worst and she,
felt nothing but hatred. It had been
.only a sort of community friendship

on the next street as a duty and ehe
and Tom were close neighbors. He
always grabbed the lion's share ot
everything, and never by any chance

Rut she hated him. She fingered
the stone lovingly in her red. rough
fingers and her lips narrowed In an
She edged around tho corner of the
building again out of sight and
gripped tho stone hard. Luckily it
had been the left wrist he had in
jured. There was the sound of many
feet and, peering around the corner,
Clara beheld tho redoubtable Tom
Klier in full flight.
Pursuing him were six of the gang
from the next street. Tom's face was
led and he was panting; there .was
mud on his torn clothes and he bore
evidence of rough usage.
Tho gang had caught him off his
own territory and started to punish
him, nnd now it was Intent on catch- J
ing him to finish the job. If caught
he would get all that was coming to'
him and pay up Clara's scoro as well
as their own.
Clara Xlckell raised her arm and
the light of battle flashed in her eyes,
drying the tears. She leaned forward
like a fmnll fury and hurled the
jagged Mono full at the leader of the
pursuing crowd instoad of at Tom
Klior. Tho loader went down in a
heap ad his cohorts stumbled over
him and fell In confusion. Tom flew
around the corner and Joined Clara

Ho grabbed her wrist to holp drag
her to safety, and, though It was the I
sprained one, sho did not cry out. I
Something fierce and warm was ,
spreading from her heart all over her, '
wiping out her red anger against Tom. I
Private wrongs always vanish before
a community war, though Clara was I
not aware of this scientific fact. I

Some Farmers Deliberately Impose on
Small Merchants by Giving
Goods Known to Be Stale.
(I)y A. Q. riUI.LIl'S, Kansas.)
Selling crga 1h ono of tho handiest
ways for tho fanner to got a cash
or trade return for his produce, during
nil parts of tho year, nnd if he can !
Increase tho clllclcncy of the machin
ery which produces nnd handles theso
eggs ho Is putting Into his pocket good
Almost every housewife who 13
compelled to buy egga constantly
clamors for sonic method which sho
may pursuo In order to always get
fresh eggs. There Is no housewife
who has not some time or other had
tho great displeasure of handling spoil
ed or rotten eggs. This almost con
Btant occurrence, with tho posslblo
exception of tho winter months, prac
tically compels thoso who lecture nnd
carry on experiment station work to
plead with tho farmers who produce
tho eggs to put onto tho market bet
ter produce. '
The egg loss each year Is enormous
nnd Is beyond nil reasonable justifica
tion, and tho blamo lies, at least In
part, with tho farmer for tho following
two reasons: '
First, somo fow farmers deliberate
ly tako to market eggs which they
know are not fresh, becauso they know
Eggs Should Be Packed In Neat Catet.
that the merchant is compelled to take
them or lose their trade. Second, and
by far the greatest reason, is because
of ignorance on the part of tho farm
er as to what and how to sell eggs.
When the hens on the farm are
producing enough eggs to warrant the
farmer's taking them to town, ar
rangements should bo made to handle
all of them properly. A convenient
and clean place should bo provided-,
wherein the hens can lay. The nat
ural tendency of a hen is to go off
in the weeds and make her nest. This
should not bo tolerated and any eggs
found in such places should bo marked
and kept at home.
When the clean, fresh eggs are
bathercd they should be put in a
clean, dry, cool place until marketed.
Even though the place Is clean and
cool. If It Is not dry, molds, etc., will
commence development and tho eggs
will soon spoil. If tho eggs become
damp and they happen to be in con
tact with any colored material they
will immediately become stained.
Good egg cases in a cool, dry, clean I
place, kept up off of the floor, make
an excellent receptacle in which to
keep eggs previous to marketing.
Refore these eggs are set aside for J
market, they should be gone over by
the farmer as he collects them, and
all small, stained, dirty, doubtful, in-1
cubator and rotten eggs should be
removed. Small and dirty eggs, if
used Immediately, are Just as good as
large clear ones, but they will not
sell well on the market, and if sent
In with good eggs will spoil the trade.
Therefore, they should be kept and
used at home. No eggs should be
washed, for the packers clalmthey
will not keep well. All eggs from
stolen nests, whose freshness Is doubt
ful, and all incubator eggs should
either be thrown away, boiled for the
little chicks or used at home. They
should never be sent to market. Rot
ten eggs need not be discussed. Any
person who will send one to market
deserves all the penalty possible from
the pure-food law.
When eggs have been properly ,
gathered, handled and kept previous
to taking to market, the question
of the number ot trips to town should
be considered. In hot weather tho
eggs should bo marketed two or three
times per week, and oftener if pos
sible. If that number of trips cannot
bo made, co-operate with a neighbor
and have him alternate days in tho
trips which must be made.
In the fall and spring eggs should
be marketed at least once a week.
Many buyers have had trouble in No
vember with eggs classed as "held
eggs." These are common, because
most farmers believe that after frost
eggs will not rot so qujckly, but never
theless they do evaporate and the air
cells In them 6how the candler that
they aro stale.
Therefore, the more often eggs ara
marketed, the greater aro the chances
that they will be good.
Make-Up of Broilers.
A broilor bhould have a good, plump
breast, broad back, clean yellow legs
and yellow skin, and small comb.
Such is tho American epicure's idoal
but these requirements bar out such
breeds as Brahmas, Cochins, Lang
shans, or any crosses on them, on ac
count of the feathers on their legs.
They bar out all whlte-tclnned fowls,
and put a damper on all large-comb
birds like Leghorns, Minorcas, etc.
Such being the case, the Wyandottos
have easy sailing; and, besides, being
quick growers are more desirable for

"Oh, 1'vo ruined Itl What shall I
do? Virginia, do come herb!
Oh, Virginia I"
Virginia ennio running from tho din
ing room of the llttlo Hat where sho
and Allno Cnrr had been keeping
liouso for two years. Iler face wati
flushed, nnd her eyes wore wldo with
"What In tho world Is tho matter,
child? Aro you hurt? What In It?"
she exclaimed as she rushed Into
Allue's tiny bedroom nnd found that
Fiii.'ill person in a sobbing heap on the
"Allno, what have you dono? Come,
dear, you mustn't cry. Allno, speak
Allno lifted her tear-stained face
nnd brushed buck a mass of thick
golden curls. "Just look at it! See
what I'vo dono to my dress It's ruin
ed! Oh, Virginia I can't go to the
ball. What will Win think? What
will his mother think?
"Ink all over the front of my gown
my pretty now gown! Isn't It Just
terrible? There's no time to get any
thing else. It It wasn't a fancy dress
party, I could manage, but I can't go
In Just an evening gown, nnd there Is
no posslblo way for mo to get oven a
domino to put over my pink frock."
Again the pretty head was buried
in the pillow, and the slight form ot
tho girl shook with sobs.
Virginia looked with alarm and In
terest at tho lovely fluffy frock flung
over a chair back. All over tho front
and side was a dark blue stain, a big
blotchy stain that completely spoiled
,tho pretty laces nnd chiffon.
Virginia knew that she looked on a
tragedy. Aline had been engaged to
Winston Scott Just two weeks. Sho
was to meet his mother for the first
time that evening the mother who
'Would be critical, who was giving a
costumed ball for Winston's sister,
nnd would expect great things from
Virginia knew that Mrs. Scott was
not the Bort of a woman to look with
favor upon her son's marriage with
a girl who earned her own living; but
she knew Aline could win even the
sternest woman's heart with her gen
tle manner and sweet, loving disposi
tion If she only had a chance.
"Don't cry, little one. I think we
lean fix It all right. Come along with
.me. I may have something that will
do as well as this shepherdess dress."
Wonderingly, Aline followed Vir
ginia Into her room, where the older
girl knelt beside a large trunk taking
things out of It until sho drew forth
a package wrapped In tissue paper.
Opening it, she held up a lovely crepe
kimono, a real Japanese garment, of
tho palest shell pink, with cherry blos
soms embroidered over its surface so
that they looked as if some merry
summer breeze had scattered them
there. It was lined with dreamy
Allno gasped with joy. She could
wear the lovely robe over her pink
slip and represent a daughter ot Ja
pan. Virginia helped her to arrange her
hair with tiny fans and pretty pins.
Her brows and eyes were penciled; a
little rouge applied deftly to her
cheeks and lips gave her the piquant
appearance of a dainty geisha girl.
"Where did you get this lovely
kimono, Virginia? How sweet of you
to lend It to me."
"I wore It once to a party five
years ago," replied Virginia, and then
quickly changed the subject.
It was nearly midnight when Aline
sank down In a secluded corner of the
conservatory justh to "get her breath
and think for a minute." She had
been a success. Mrs. Scott had re
ceived her most graciously. Winston
had told her over and oter how lovely
she was, and his sister had admired
her costume and 6aid she was the
prettiest girl in the ballroom. It was
almost time to unmask.
She leaned her head back on the
cushions of the divan and closed her
eyes behind their satin mask. Sud
denly she was conscious ot some one
sitting down beside her; then
"Virginia! At last I have found
you. 1 came late, and only caught
sight of you in tho crush. Why have
you hidden yourself from me, Vir
ginia?" "I beg your pardon. I am not Vir
ginia. I suppose you mean Virginia
Taylor." And Allno quickly pulled off
her mask, revealing her face to the
man in monk's costume seated by her
"Pardon me. I'm sorry I made the
mistake but surely, that is It was
your kimono that led me to think you
were Miss Taylor. She has, or had
one just like It,
"This Is Miss Taylor's kimono. She
let me wear It tonight because I spoil
ed my own dross."
"You know Virginia? Tell me, Is
"Rut I can find her! I am Jack
Howard, an old friend; in fact, we
were engaged to be married, but after
a foolish quarrel I left for the west
without seeing her, and 1 hae not
been able to find her since my return
to New York. She was wearing that
kimono the last time I saw her. Tell
me where I can address her, please."
"Don't you think it would be best
to go to see her? Virginia and I have
an apartment which we share."
"That blessed kimono!" said Vir
ginia a week later as she laid It back
ta the trunk. "To think I should bet
packing it now for my honeymoon,
and you, Aline, are to be my maid o
honor instead ot 1 yours." j

Guard Your Children
Against Bowel Trouble
Many children at an early age
become constipated, and frequently
serious consequences result. Not
being able to realize his own con
dition, a child's bowels should be
constantly watched, and a gentle
laxative given when necessary.
Dr. Miles' Laxative Tablets are
especially well adapted to women
