The love of Soo
"T T IS name wns Soo Tokion and
jvj lie was tho only Japanese
1 student at a big university
(Z on a big lake. I lor name
was Helen Sturtevant and she was an
American student at the same big uni
versity. Soo was a little fellow like
nearly nil of his nteo. Helen was a
groat, splendid creature, -who towered
more than a head above the little
.Tap. rrofessors and students alike had
ample opportunity to note the fact
that Helen was a head taller than .Soo,
for the little Japanese was with Lor
whenever opportunity afforded.
The students said that Tokion came
very near being a Greek word, and
they wondered how the name Avan
Oercd to far-off Japan. They said
that the Jap didn't have much of tho
appearance of the Spartan about him,
though he did have scholarship tint
might be called Athenian. At his first
name, Soo, they laughed. It fitted him,
they said, because it was a name that
went with his build and weight. Of
course the boys called him "Susie,"
and the Jap never minded at all until
he found out that Susie was a girl's
name, .and that it was given to lilm
In a sort of contempt for his pigmv
The Japs are noted wrestler?, and
one clay Susie astonished a big follow
who had applied the giiT name to him
by standing him on his head and near
ly breaking tho tormentor's neck in
doing it. After that even the husky
football players sunk the name Susie
and spoke to the little Jap cordially
and called him by the name given him
hi the Orient.
Now Helen Sturtavant had attract
ed Soo the moment his Eastern eyes
beheld her. It's curious, but It's true
as the synoptic gospels, that little men,
that Is extremely little men, manage to
fall m love with' big women. Helen
Sturtevant liked the devotion of the
Jap. She'treated him with an amused
sort of toleration. Every woman likes
CTCtien, even though it is shown by a
Sco Tokion was ft Euddlilst, but he
had become a Christian, or what Is
more likely, pretended .':onvcrsiou, so
that he cculd go to chapel and sit near
Ileleu Sturtevant. It was a ftiir-hairod
goddess that he was worshiping while
on his knees, rather than the Cod of
the Christians. Because Helen Sturte
vant was taking a course in elocution
and dramatic art Soo undertook the
same course, and this gave him other
opportunities to be near his adored
Tho cc-eds gossiped much, and at
times rather noisily about the devotion
of Soo to Helen. As tho girls put it the
little Jap was awfully cut up about
the fair American and it was a shame
that because Helen Sturtevant liked
admiration she must encourage Soo to
co on breaking his heart when there
was no chance of Helen's mending H
for him In the way that Soo wanted.
Helen had so many beaux among the
American students that it is just bare
ly possible that some of the co-eds
thought that she might let Soo attach
himself to their trains, for Soo was re
ported to bo 'wealthy and the big
bunches o" hothouse flowers that went
to Ileleu in zero weather, when hot
house flowers cost a mint, would have
been very acceptable to any of
tho other fair sisters of the university.
Helen Sturtevant had no very serious
thoughts about the Jap. She did like
him in a certain way, and the bon-bons
be sent her were delicious and the
flowers were fragrant "and surely,'' the
girl said to herself, "he can't mean any
thing serious, for ho must know how
utterly Impossible it would be for me
to think of such a thing as loving him,
let alone marrying him."
Helen Sturtevant was bent on follow
ing the career of an actress. She had
natural gifts. Absolutely impartial
persons had Kild her that, and the girl
felt it herself. Her father was a man
of some means, and he grudged nth
Ing that would go toward the education
df his daughter and the helping toward
the realization of her dramatic dream.
Cue day a dozen of the co-eds were
gathered 'in the university art studio.

"You'll do something worse than
bankrupt poor Soo, Helen," said an
other undent; "you'll break his hetrt
unless you keep It sound by marrying
him. Frankly, dear child, everybody Is
taking about this thing, even the pro
fessors. Why don't you marry hini?"
the girl questioned, half misihievou-ly.
Helen flushed. Tho Idea of marrying
Soo was preposterous. "Do you sup
peso any American girl would marry
an Oriental';" she said. "The Fat
Eastern peoples have no more concep
tion of the rights of a woman as a wife
than has the unspeakable Turk. They
may think th"y love a vcr.an, but not
one of them would sacrifice his own
pleasure for her, let alone anything
An Instructor came Into the studio
and called the students out. Behind a
screen in tlie corner stood a man
a man In truth, though In stature ho
was but a child. It was Soo Tokion.
He had been at work on a clay model
when the students entered. He was
about to make his presence behind tho
screen known, when there came the
words which held him silent. Now he
stood trembling, and with something In
the depths of his Oriental eyes that was
past sounding. "No such thing ns sac
rifice known to my people for thr.so
whom wo love?" he murmured to hUn
self. "No regard for tho rights of
woman as a wife:" Then Soo Tokion
murmured something in his native
tongue that sounded like a prayer.
The next day there came a blow to
Helen Sturtevant. Her father bad
failed, failed utterly and miserably,
and she must give up her course. Tho
girl was crushed bodily and mentally.
The r.cws flew through the university.
Helen's father's business had gone to
the wall and Helen was to leave. Tho
stage dream had vanished with tho
Soo Tokion heard. He sought the
girl out. She was sit.ing alone in a
corner .of a music room. He went
to her softly. He carried one rosebud,
spotlessly while, in his hand. The girl
looked up as he came. She saw him
and above her own misery came the
thought of what she had said tho day
before, and her heart smote her.
"I have heard, and I am sorry, Miss
Helen," said Soo. He put the white
rose in her hand and then started to
speak again, but his voice broke. He
uttered the one word "Helen," and bo
fore the girl knew it he had seized her
hand, kissed it and was gone.
Two days afier the body of a man,
a little man, was recovered from tho
waters of the big lake. It was not
h'mt to Identify the drowned.
One week afterward Helen Sturte
vant was informed by a -aw firm that
she was the sole heiress to !?2."i,0(10. the

There is a little chapel now being

in a village .vast: outside Yokohama.
It is called the Soo Tokion Chapel. The

the "lability of other disease germs be
ing taken into the stomach, and It is
likely that distilled water would be
prescribed for constant use were it
not for tho difficulty of securing It. It
is to provide a constant supply of this
pure water, with as little trouble as
possible, that the household still shown
in the illustration has been invented
by Edward Warren and George W.
Ilealy. The invention is to utilize the
waste steam from the teakettle, and
the Invention, therefore, comprises a
double reservoir, having a receiver for
the steam and a cold water chamber
surrounding the condenser. A curved
tube is slipped over the spout of the
kettle to conduct the steam into the
condensing chamber, and as fast as the
distilled water collects in this chamber
it is drawn off for use or bottling. The
cold water reservoir is filled from time
to time, and has a faucet to feed tho
kettle through an opening In the tube
which covers the spout. Thus the
steam from the boiling water is con
stantly producing the distilled product,
instead of wasting itself In the air.

Rape should be given a trial by 0
farmer who desires to increase
supply of green food. It is galniir.
vor wherever Introduced, and Is solv

should be sown as early as possible,
and is ready for use in seven or eight
weeks, providing several cuttings until
frost, or freezing weather, comes in
the fall, or it may be sown in succes
sion until July. Sow five pounds of
seed broadcast on on? acre, first hav
ing the ground in good condition. Ii
the seed is drilled into tho soil then
only one-half the quantity may bo
used. Rape is also excellent for cattle,

EARLY HATCHED CHICKENS.
We find by experience that early
hatched chickens are always best. We
set cur incubator early in April and
in November the pullets begin to lay.
In the latter part of tho summer the
pullets are as large as the old hens.
Early pullets make our best whiter
layers, and the eggs from them are
much better for hatching jmrpiscj
than from late hatched chic-!;:-. Ti;,-1
eggs are larger, with more vitality i.i
them. They will hatch a larger p-?;'
cent, cf chicks tint win live aiv.i grow
well than will eggs from late hatch
ing. A late hatched chick will never
attain the size of an early one. Tho
early one gets its full siz? while tli"
weather is warm ami the forage is
abundant, but the late one has to make
the finish in the winter on dry fe?d
in confinement. Nothing grows so well
in confinement as when left to run at
will. Late hatched chickens grow
very nicely while they have a chance
to run, out winter comes on wnne tliy
are yet growing and they go into the
house and stay rather than wad? in
the snow. The change is so sudden
and unnatural that tue rapid growth
stops and they become stunted, neve:'
getting so Isrge as the;
they got their proper growth dating
warm weather. I believe if th.-.' plan
