THRILLED BY STATE "LINES"
English Woman Surprised at Sim
plicity of Crossing Boundaries
In the United States.
I like tlio feeling of crossing from
one state Into nnolher, especially as
tlic American states are as bite as Kuro
peun countries. Especially also ns
there Is only a stone to murk the
division, and the transit Is ns simple ns
going from one county to another.
At Tlcondcrogu you cross from Now
York state to Vermont, or from -Vermont
to New York state. This might
' seem an 'Important process. Actually,
you stand on one shore anil toot your
horn, taking n soft drink the while,
and presently a vessel nppeurs which
Is none other thnn u roomy red punt,
propelled from the sldo by n small
launch. The punt lets down n tall
board, the motor gives n hiccup over
It, and there you arc until the process,
reversed, takes place on the other side.
This Is one of the few ferries by means
of which you span the great water
ways' from New York to Canada
waterways over which, most of the
time, bridges are unthinkable.
It Is also the gateway from the Green
mountains In the Adtromlacks, blue
and shapely, nnil from the one you can
see the other on either side of Lake
Chnmpluln, and between the two on the
sparkling blue surface of the lake piles
n little white steamer, bearing visitors
to the most historic spots of North
America, and taking the place of the
birch bark canoe with Its load of In
dians, who also had their own par
ticular Interest la historic spots.

SPANIARDS' DEBT TO MOORS
Art of Tile. Making Is a Legacy Which
Invaders Left When They
Were Driven Out.
The Spaniards hnve been lighting
the Moors for the last 1,000 years,
but the Moors, during the centuries
of their occupancy of the Iberian
peninsula as conquerors, developed
much In the way of art and architec
ture that Is most highly valued today.
To theid we owe, for one small Item,
the tiles which so beautifully adorn
our bathrooms and which, utilized In
various ways,' contribute so much to
the artistic finish of dwellings ami
other buildings. The Moors estab
lished at Seville great tile factories,
and at the present time that city Is a
very Important tlle-makltig center.
In Its neighborhood are deposits of u
clayey earth highly suitable for the
purpose, which Is ground line, sifted,
dampened and stamped with designs,
.then burned with a slow tire. Colors
are applied and the tiles arc finally
baked with high heat for twenty-four
. -Many of the designs are nrtlstle,-rp-resenting
scenes from Don Quixote,
bull lights, etc Sacred paintings aro
reproduced In tiles for churches, in
fact, thanks to their undent enemies,
the Moors, the Spaniards have de
veloped art In tiles far beyond any
thing with which we are familiar.
Treasures for University.
Four Important manuscript letters
from the .Sixteenth century have been
placed In the manuscript room of
the University of Chicago. Two are
letters of King Henry III of France,
notorious lu connection with the tuns

letters nre on parchment nnd one

In the collection Is that of Cardinal
do Itamboulllet nddresscd to King

Tunis Ornic sat deep lu her problem
before the lire. llruce Aiiilinnt fin Wit a
the problem, nnd even Jnne's cieiirl
e.es could rend no explanation of his
slrangu moods and emotions. Surely
llruce loved her now, even as she loveil
him, the attachment had been growing
slowly nud surely, and to Jane Ormc
love In Its unselfishness was a revela
tion. For years she had written of the
subject, nnd tlie winsome charm of her
writings won for her fame fame In
a measure. The little town that shel
tered her still regarded Jane Ormc
merely as a kindly, friendly person.
Beyond, In the greater cities, yniina
glils bending over her books pictured
her very differently ns one as Ingenl
ously fascinating as the heroines of
her own tale. Jane loved to write
of French women.
Her latest book, "Madeline," was
growing day by day and so real the
character became to Jane that some
times It seemed more than an Insist
ent Inspiration. When llruce Adding
ton came calmly and unheralded as
the one all Important Into her lire,
Jane enjoyed much his sympathy In
her work. lie was able too, to help
her In many details of her writing,

In France. The firm who recently bnd
taken lilin Into partnership commis
sioned him there at that time. Jane
Orme, busy and happy In the penning
of her fancied romances, bnd found
none equally satisfying for herself;
so, because of her acknowledged lov
nblenoss, he was dubbed laughingly,
but hellevlngly, nevertheless ns heart
less. When llruce came, her assurance
was completely swept aside. Altso
lately, Jane loved him.
As weeks passed, there was about
the big earnest man that which pigued
nnd troubled her. Why were his dnrk
eyes always somber shadowed, even
In the look which told unmistakably
his love? And while his eyes and ac
tions voiced this. truth, why did his
lips remain silent? Jane, pausing
often over her written pages, wondered
ami wondered. And ns she brooded,
busy, with her problem In tho fire
light; llruce came suddenly, to sit at
her side. Ills lino eyes looked search
lugly, pleadingly Into her own.
"I tried not to come," ho began,
perplexlngly, then stopped.
Jane sighed. She was discouraged
by questionings which failed to bring
explanation of her lover's moods.
"1 wont," site said, Instead, "to let
you read part of my new book, llruce.
Yon can help me with the coloring."
"Tell me the theme." he begged her,
"nud4 later I will go over the story.

of tho i fire and you."
Jane spoke stlfTly. It was dllllcult
for her to put Into cold words, her

off musingly, while llruce, leaning for
ward, caught suddenly nt her hands,
crushing them lu his own.
"Jane!" be exclaimed, ".Tone! where
did you get your thought, your perfect
understanding of that situation?"
Jane slowly relensed her hands.
"Why," she replied, "that would, be
the natural outcome of the situation.
Human nature, llruce," she laughed un
certainly, "Is supposed to be my special
ty, you know."
llruce was on his knees, before her,
his bead against her arm.
"Then, knowing human nature," he
said, "perhaps you can forgive my
coming here at all, daring to devote
myself to you, making you learn, per
haps, to love me. For I was that
young American, Jane, the year I went
to take charge of our French olllce.
And there I met nnd married your
Madeline of another nnnie. Wo lle

I could not bo the one to break that

my support, across the seas. And ufter
all, the foolish union was of my per
suasion, Hut that Is a hard ending
for a story-r.Jano Ormc."
Jane looked down at the man's trou

Townsloy, extension poultry
specialist oT the Missouri Col
lege of Agriculture. Yet proba
bly the most common reason
found for the'low average, which
some lloeks still show is the fact
that the owners are careless in
keeping the mash supply con
Tho one most important fact
for all farm poultry keepers is
that etftf production is deter
mined by the kind nud 'amount
of feed given and that in order
to insure heavy laying the hens
must bo (oil their grain regu
larly and must have dry mash
continually available. Moreover
this dry mash must contain ani
mal protein in some such form
as commercial meat scrap or
tankage if the birds are to lay
profitably, unless enough milk
is available to give the hens all
the milk they, will drink every
On some farms attempts have
been made to economize by re
ducing the amount of meat
scrap or tankage in the ration,
and this almost . invariably re
sults in a loss of profit through
tho lessened number ol eggs
secured. The standard ration
recommended is to keep a dry
mash composed of 100 pounds of
wheat brand, 100 pounds of
wheat shorts and HO pounds of

Kill Kafir PllSt 111 WilltbT I
"The new kafir or sorghum!
worm is not a new arrival in the
United States," according to Dr.
Leonard Hasoman of tho Mo.
College of Argiculture. "It was
described and named as long ago
as ledl when it attracted some
attention in Alabama. However,
as a serious scourge of kafir and
related, crops, it came into prom
inence only in tlio past two
months. It seem to prefer the
unripe grain of kali r, sorghum
and allied crops.
"Where most abundant this
pest litis destroyed 100 per cent
(r the grain crop, and ' some
counties report a loss reaching
70 percept for the whole county.
Kafir is being pushed as an im
portant grain crop for the Ozark
counties of the state, but if this
wor.m. continues to bo so do
structivo in the years to come it
will greatly discourage this
"The pest this year developed
one brood during August and
September and the offspring of
that brood are now arriving at
the full-grown stage. I'Yoin re
cent breeding experiments be
ing carried, on at tho Missouri
Kxperiment Station it seems
likely that the pest is preparing
to pass tho winter as the full
grown larva or pupa in a co
coon behind the leaf sheaths and
elsewhere on kafir, sorghum,
corn and similar crops. If it
does this, the farmer has an ex
cellent opportunity to reach the
pest in the winter by using up
all Todder and other materials
in which it may be found during
"This, with the late fall plow
ing of all infested fields, that
can safely be plowed, with tho
view of turning under all over
wintering stages of the worm,
should go far toward the con
trol of the pest. The caterpillar
is sluggish a::d at this season
seems to be present mostly as
immature or fullgrown worms,
It is not likely, therefore, to get
far from the infested crop or
