neither spoke, and Marjorle sat star
ing at nothing through raining eyes,
while Mallory strode Into the Men's
lloom at melancholy as Hamlet with
Yorlck's skull In his hands.
It was their first great quarrel, and
thiy were convinced that the world
-might as well come to an end.

"Thank you very much. You're the
mee.-t conductor I ever met. If you
i-ver want another position, I'll see

It was like offering the kaiser a

the) Insult and sought fo repay It with
"Thanks. And If you ever want to
run this road for a rouple of weeks
Juat let nie know."
Marjorle nodded appreciatively and
said: "I will. You're very kind."
And that completed (ho rout of that
condttetor. Ho retired In disorder,
leaving Mnrjiirle to fondle Snoozle

would have greatly flattered Mnllory
If he could have aeon through the

they bowled him down and ordered

A groan went up from the club

"Don't do anything desperate, gen
tlemen." ho said, with a look of dl
vine philanthropy. "The bar's closed
but I.lttle Jlmmle Wellington Is here
with tbe life preserver." From his
hip pocket he produced a silver flask
that looked to be big enough to carry
a regiment through tbe Alps. It was
greeted with a salvo, and I.athrop
said to Jlmmle: "I apologize for
everything I have said and thought
about you." He turned to the porter
'There ain't any law against giving
this way. Is there?"
The porter grinned: "Not If you all
bribe tho exercise-Inspector." And he
held out a glass for the bribe, mur
muring. "Don't git tired," as it was
poured. He set It Inside bin sanctum
and then bustled round with Ire-tilled
glasses and a siphon.
When Little Jlmmle offered of the
flask to Dr. Temple, the clergyman
put out Ills band with a politely hor
rified: "So, thank you."
Lathrop frightened him with a sud
den comment: "Look at that gesture!
Doc, I'd almost swear you were a par
son." Mallory whirled on hlra with the
eyes of a hawk about to pounce, and
"Tho very idea!" was the best dis
claimer Dr. Temple could manage,
suddenly finding himself suspected.
Ashton put In with, "The only way
to disprove it. Doc, is to Join us."
The poor old clergyman, too deeply
Involved In his deception to brave
confession now, decided to do and
dare all. He stammered, 'Kr ah
certainly," and beld out his hand for
his share of the poison. Little Jlm
mle winked at the others and almost
filled the glass. The innocent doctor
bowed his thanks. When the porter
reached him and prepared to till the
remainder of the glass Irom the
siphon, tbe parson waved blm aside
with a misguided. caution:
"No. thanks. I'll not mix them."
Mallory turned away with a sigh:
"He takes tils straight, lies no part-on.
Then tbey forgot the doctor In
curiosity as to I.athrop s sudden
spasm of generosity with Welling

general curiosity when he said:
"What's the old woman-hater up to
"Woman-hater?" laughed Ira. "H'

Mallory's txample marriage."
"I hope you succeed," said Mallory.
"Wherever did you pick up the
bride?" said Wedgewood, mellowing
with tbe long glass in bit hand.
'Iirldes are easy," said Mallory,
lth surprising cynicism. "Where do
you get the parson?"
"Hang the parson," Wedgewood re
peated, "Who's the gel?"
"I'll bet I know who tbe Is," Ash
ton Interposed; "It's that nectarine of

"Not the same!" Lathrop roared.

Mallory broke In with teverlsb In

he raised his glass, but Mallory hauled

Poor Dr. Temple had taken luxuri
ous delight In the tuccest of bit dis
guise and In the prospect of watch
ing some other clergyman working
while he rested. He Joined tbe dunce
gaily, If not at gracefully, aa any
of tbe rest, and In a final triumph of
recklessness, he tosBed off a bumper
of straight whisky.
Instantly his "How!" changed to
"Wow!" and then his throat clamped
fast with a terrific spusin thut flung
tho tears from his eyes. He bent and
writhed In a silent paroxysm till he
was funded and shaken back to lire
and water poured down his tbroat to
reopen a passege.
The others thought he had merely
choked and made no comment other
than sympathy. They could not have
dreamed that the old "physician" was
as Ignorant of tho taste as of the
vigor of pure spirits.
After a riot of handshaking and
good wishes, Ira was permitted to es
cape with bis lire. Mallory followed
him to the vestibule, when be caught
him by the sleeve with an auxloua:
"Well, my boy "
"Your minister after you get

"May you what? Why do you
want a minister?"
"To get married."
"Again? (Jood Lord, are you a Mor

"Then what do you want with an

"You don't understand."

"Well, I'm not." said Mallory. and
then after a fierce Inner debate, be
decided to take Lathrop Into his con- 1
fadence. The words came hard after j
so long a duplicity, but at last tbey
"Mr. Lathrop, I'm not really mar
ried to my wife."
"You young scoundrel!"
But his fury changed to pity when
he heard tbe history of Mallory's Ill
fated efforts, and he promised not
only to lend Mallory bis minister at
second-hand, but also to keep tbe
whole nffalr a secret, for Mallory ex
plained his Intention of having bis

Mallory's face was now aglow at '
the cold embers of hope leaped Into i
sudden blaze. He wrung Latbrop't
hand, saying: "Lord love you, you've ;
saved my life wire both."
Then he turned nnd ran to Mar I
Jorle with the good news. He had :
quite forgotten their epoch-making '
separation. And she was so glad to
see him smiling at her again that she !
forgot It, too. He came tearing Into
the observation room and took her by '
the shoulders, whispering: "Oh, Mar-'
Jorle. Marjorle, I've got him! I've got !
"No, I've got him," she said, swing
lng Snoozleums Into view.
Mallory swung hlra back out of tbe
way: "I don't mean a poodle, 1 mean !

"No! I can't believe it! Where Is

light, but she stopped when he ex
"Well. I baven't got him yet, but
I'm going to get one."
"What again?" she groaned, weary
of this old bunco game of hope.

Mallory Insisted. "Mr. Lathrop bat

KNOWLEDGE OF FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE
When Breeding for Profit It Is Necessary to Curtail All Un
sary Expense Birds With Vigorous Constitutions
for Breeding. equ'
Pigeons are found wherever man

many hundreds of yean. There are
eleven recognised distinct breeds and

the head of the list, and there are

several crosses between the Homer
and other breeds, and each variety has
Perhaps today the white Homers are
in greater demand than any other
A cock' pigeon should be selected
for his activity and good disposition.
If he stmts about a good deal and Is
contlnunlly cooing ho will generally
make a good breeder.
The bird that la stupid, sluggish or
negligent In the care of his plumage
or vicious In hla actions toward other
birds should never be selected. A bird
that Is related to its mate or bred
from blood relatives should never be
used for breeding purposes. Birds with
vigorous constitutions are necessary
for successful market breeding and in
breeding Is fatal to IhiB development.
Hefore buying breeders, the begin
ner should have his lofts In readiness.
Interior of Pigeon House.
A tositlon facing south Is always best,
aa then the Interior will bo flooded
with sunshine all hours of the day,
and every corner will be penetrated
with light and to kept purified and the
birds will be tn the best possible, con
dition. As a general thing, a slngle-Btory
house la best with the floor one foot
or more from the ground. The house
should have a pitch roof, with the
higher side for the front. Windows
should be made in front only, us all

side will be needed for the nesta.

A proportion which hat almost
come to be the standard among those
who breed pigeons for tquab raising
is nine feet In front with a drop to
three feet to the back and about ten
feet wide Inside; tho depth may be
somewhat greater than the width. A
succession of these lofts may be built
as the business progresses, or they
may be put up at the same tlmo.
OF CROP ROTATION
Whole Supply of Soil Food Util
ized and Organic Matter
Advantages connected with the adop
tion of rotation are:
1. The whole food supply of the-soil
can be utilized. This is not possible
when only one crop is grown, for
some crops feed only In the surface
soil, leaving stores of food deeper In
the soil untouched.
2. The amount Of valuable organic
matter in the soil can be maintained
and even increased.
3. The free nitrogen of the air can
be made use of.
4. Insect, fungus and weed pests car,
be destroyed or controlled.
5. Provision can be made for the eco
nomical distribution of labor through
out the year.
Tbe rotation suitable for the wheat
farmer Is on In which wheat is grown
alternately with a fodder crop, says
Rural Homes. This implies wheat
growing combined with stock raising.
On small holdings in most districts of
20 inches rainfall and over, this may
be so arranged dthat a crop Is grown
each year. Such a plan, however, has
the disadvantage of entailing that
some of the land be prepared In great
haste and possibly at an unsuitable
