It started in a email place on the lower extremities and spread for two years until it very nearly covered the back part of hi j leg to the knee.

"What's going on around here?" asked the surprised visitor. "Is this a hospital?" "Oh, no," answered the tall man in the silk hat; "this Is the stage setting for a New England farm drama. The next act will be the milking scene." "But I thought the young lady in the antiseptic apron was a trained nurse?" "Oh, no; she is the milkmaid. The young man in the rubber gloves that you thought was a doctor is the farm boy. As soon as they bring in the ster ilized stool and the pasteurized palls and find the cow's tooth brush the milking scene will begin." When Father Helped.

(Continufd.) j It wns on a crisp morning In the sec ond week of January when the pro longed agony of sunpenwe drove him to he mountain. His mother was sitting op, nnd wns rapidly recovering ner ItrenKth. Ills father had gone back to Sis work In the Iron plant, and his un cle was preparing to return to his hargo In Smith Tredegar. With no particular destination In view, It was Jnly natural that his feet should tlnd the familiar path leading up to tho froat boulder under the cedars. Ho lad not visited the rock of the spring ilnce the summer day when he. and Nan Bryerson had taken refuse from the shower in the hollow heart of It, nor had ho seen Nan since their part ner at the door of her father's cabin under the cliff. Rumor In Gordonla had It that Tike Hryerson had been bunted out by the revenue ofllcers; and, for reasons which he would have found dllllcult to declare in words, Torn had been shy about making Inquiries. for this cause nn apparition could scarcely have startled him more than lid the sluht of Nan filling her tAicket at the trickling barrel-spring under tho cliff face of the great rock. He came on her suddenly at tho end of the long climb up the wooded slopes, at a mo ment when seml-troplijil growth hav ing had two full seasons in which to change the natural aspect of things he was half-bewildered with the un wonted look of tho place. But there was no doubt about It: it was Nan In the flesh, a little fuller In the figure, something less childish In tho face, but with all the fascinating, wild-crea ture beauty of the child-time promise to dazzle the eye and breed riot in the brain of the boy-man. "Did you know 1 was coming? Were you waiting for me, Nan?" he bubbled, gazing Into the great black eyes as ea gerly as a freed dog plunges Into tho first pool that offers. How could 1 be knowln' to it?" she asked, taking him seriously, or appear ing to. "I nev' knowed school Jet out this time o' year." "It's let out for mo, Nan," he said, meaningly. "I came homo for good nearly three weeks ago. My mother has been sick. Didn't you hear of it?" She shook her head gravely. "Say, Nan; I hope you haven't got to hurry home," he Interposed, when sho stooped to lift the overflowing bucket. "I want to talk to you to tell you something." "Air you a man now, Tom-Jeff, or on'y a boy like you used to be?" she asked. "I'm big enough to be In my own way a good deal of the time. I be lieve I could muddy Sim Cantrell's back for him now, at arm-holts." Where's your preacher's coat, Tom- Jeff. J was pjlowln' you'd be wearln' it nex' time we met up." "I reckon there Isn't going to be any preacher's coat for me, Nan; that's one of the things I want to talk to you about Let's go over yonder and sit down In the sun." The place he chose for her was a flat stone half embedded In the up-cllmb-lng slope beyond the great boulder. She sat facing the path and the spring, listening, while Tom, stretched luxuri ously on a bed of dry leaves at her feet, told her what had befallen; how he had been turned out of Beersheba, and what for; how, all the former things having passed away, he was torn and distracted in the struggle to find a footing In the new order. "They-all up yonder in that school where you was at hain't got much sense, it looks like to me," was her comment "You're a man growed now, Tom-JefT, and if you want to play cards or drink whisky, what-all busi ness is It o" thelr'n?" "You stand by your friends, right or wrong, don't you, girl?" he said, in sheerest sclf-gratulatlon. "That's what I like In you. You asked me a little while back if I was a man or a boy; I believe you could make a man of me. Nan, If you'd try." "If you'd said that two year ago," she began, In a half-whisper that melt ed the marrow In his bones. "But you was on'y a boy then; and now I reckon It's too late." "You mean that you don't care for me any more, iNanr i Know oetter than that You'd back me If I had come up here to tell you that I'd killed somebody. Wouldn't you, now?" He waited overlong for his answer. There were sounds In the air: a metal lic tapping like the Intermittent drum mlng of a woodpecker mingled with a rustling of some small animal scurry ing back and forth over the dead leaves. The girl leaned forward, lis tening Intently. Then three men ap peared in the farther crooking of the spring path, and at the first glimpse of them she slipped from the flat stone to cower behind Tom, trembling, ahak ing with terror. Hide me, Tom-jem Oh, hide me, quick!" she panted. "Lookee there!" lie looked ana saw me three men walking slowly up the pipe-line which drained the barrel-spring. They wore too far away to be recognizable to him, and since they were stopping momen tarily to examine the pipe, there was good hope of an escape unseen. Tom waited breathless for the pro pitious Instant when the tapping of tha pipe-men's hammers should drown the nolso of a dash for effacement. When It came, he flung himself backward whipped Nan over his head and out of the line of sight as It she had been feather-light, and rolled swiftly after her. Before she could rise he had pick ed her up and was dragging her to tha climbing point under the lip of the boulder cave. "Up with you!" he commanded, mak ing a step of his hand. "Give me your foot and then climb to my shoulde: quick!" But she drew back. "Oh, I can't!" she gasped. "I I'm too skeered!" Jumping to catch the lip of the cav ern's mouth, he ascended cat-like, and a moment later he had drawn her up after him. "I'd like to know what got the mat ter with you all at once." he said, se verely, when they were crowded ti getler In the narrow rock cell; and then, without waiting for her answer: "You stay here while I drop down and keep those fellows away from this sldd of things." But It was too late. The men were already at the barrel-spring, as an In distinct murmur of voices testified, Taa Q 0 H U H D D 0 II H tJ 0 H , ., M H H n n n n n n n LYNDC Frincll Lyni girl had another trembling fit when she heard them, and Tom's wonder was fast lapsing Into contempt or some thing like It. Oh-h-h!" she shuddered. "Do you reckon they saw us, Tom-Jeff?" 'I shouldn't wonder," he whispered back unfeelingly. "We could see them plain enough." "He'll kill me. for shore, Tom-JefT: Tom's Up curled. The wolf does not mate with the Jackal. Not nil her beauty could ntone for such spiritless cringing. Love would have pitied her, but passion is not moved by qualities opposite to those which have evoked !t. Then you know them or one m them, at least," he said. "Who Is he.' She would not tell; end since the murmur of voices was still spalnly au dible, she begKcd in dumb-show for silence. Whereupon Tom shut mi mouth and did not open It again until the sound of the voices had died nw;iy and the fainter tappings of the ham mers on the plpo-llne advertised the. retreat of the Inspection party. "They'ro gone now," he said, short ly. "Let's get out of hero before we stifle." But a second time 111 chance Inter vened. Tom had a leg over me nrm and was looking for a soft leaf bed to drop Into, when the baying of a hound broke on the restored quiet of th mountain side. He drew back into hiding. The girl's ague fit of fear had passed and she seemed less concerned about the equivocal situation than a girl should be; at least, this is the way Tom's thought was shaping itself. Ho tried to imagine Ardea In Nan's place, but the thing was baldly unimagina ble. A daughter of the Imbncya would never run and cower and beg to be hidden at tho possible cost of her good name. Ana nun a wuju uiu 1101 iieip matters. "What makes you so cross to me, Tom-Jeff?" she asked, when he drew hack with an Impatient exclamation. "I hain't done nothln' to make you let on like you hate me, have I?" "I don't hate you," said Tom, frown ing. "If I did, I shouldn't care." Just then the hound burst out of the laurel thicket on tho brow of the lower slope, running with Its nose to the ground, and he added: "That's Japhe Petti grass' dog; I hope to soodness he Isn't anywhere behind It" But the horso-traaer was behind tho dog; so close behind that he came out on -the continuation of the pipe-lino path while the hound was still nosing among the leaves where Tom had lain sunning himself and telling his tale of woe, "Good dog seek hlmt What Is It, old boy?" Pettlgrass came up, patted the hound, and aat down on the flat stone to look on sujlously while the dog coursed back and forth among thu dead leaves. "Find him, Caesar; find him. boy!" encouraged Japheth; and finally tho hounded pointed a sensitive noso toward the rift In the side of the great boulder and yelped conclusively. D'ye reckon he cllmm up thar, Cae sar?" Pettlgrass unfolded his long legs and stood up on the flat stone to at tain an eye-level with the Interior of the little cavern. Tom crushed Nan Into the larthest cranny, and flattened himself lizard-like against the nearer side wall. The horse-trader looked long and hard, and they could hear him still talking to the dog. "You're an old fool, Caesar that's about what you are and Solomon al lowed thar wasn't no fool like an old one. But you needn't to swaller that whole, old boy; I've knowed some. young ones in my time sometimes gals, sometimes boys, sometimes both, But thar' ain't no 'possum up yonder, Caesar; you've flew the track this time. for certain. Come on, old dog; let's be gettin' down the mountain." The baying dog and the whistling man were still within hearing when Tom swung Nan lightly to the ground and dropped beside her. No word was spoken until she had emptied and re filled her bucket at the spring, then Tom said, with the bickering tang still on his tongue: "Say, Nan, I want to know who It 1b that's going to kill you if he happens to find you talking to me." She shook her head despondently. "I cayn't nev' tell you thut, Tom-Jeff." "I'd like to know why you can't." "Because he'd shore kill me then "Then I'll find out some other way." "What differ' does It make to you?" she asked; and again the dark eyes Bcarched him till ho was fuln to look away from her. I reckon It doesn't make any differ enco. If you don't want it to. But oiw tlmo you were willing enough to tell me your troubles, and "And I'll nev' do It naree 'nother time; never, never. And let me tell you somethln' else, Tom-Jeff Gordon: If you know what's good for you, don't you nev' come anlgh me again. On-3 tlmis wo usen to be a boy and a girl together; you're nothln' but a boy yet, but I oh, Tom-Jeff I'm a woman And with that saying Bho snatched her bucket and was gone before he could find a word wherewith to match It CHAPTER XIII. The twilight was glooming to dusk when Silas Crafts came out of the church and locked the door behind him. If he were surprised to find Tom waiting for htm, he made no sign, Nel ther was there any word of greeting passed between them when he gather ed his coat tails and sat down on the higher step, self-restraint being a her ltago which had come down undlmln Ished from the Covenanter ancestors of both. 'The way of the transgressor Is hard. grievously hard, Thomas. I think you are already finding It so, are you not?" "That doesn't meun what it used to. to me. Uncle Silas; nothing means tho same any more. it s Just at If some body had tilt that part of me with a club; It's all numb and dead. I'm sure of only one thing now: that Is, that I'm not going to be a hypocrite after this. If I can help it." "Have you been that all along, Thomas?" "1 reckon so" monotonously. "At first It was partly scare, and partly be cause I knew what motner wanted. Hut ever since I've been big enough to think, I've been asking why, and. ua you would aay, doubting." "You have come to the years of dls- cretlon, Thomas, and you have chesws death rather than life. If you go on ns you have begun, you will bring the gray hairs of your father and mother in sorrow to the grave. Leaving your own soul's salvation out of the Ques tion, can you go on and drag an up right, honorable name In the dust and mire of degradation?" "So," said Tom, defiantly. "And whst's more, I don't mean to. I don t know what Doctor Tollivar wrote you about me, end It doesn't make any dif ference now. That's over and done with. You haven't been seeing me ev ery day for these three weeks without knowing that I'm ashamed of It." "Ashamed of the consequences, yoj mean, Thomas, i ou are noi repent ant." "Yes, I am, Uncle Silas; though may- bo not In your way. I don't allow to make a fool of myself again." 'Tom, my boy, if any one had told me a year ago that a snori iwcive month would make you, not only an apostate to the faith, but a shameless liar as well " "Hold on, Uncle Silas. That's mighty near a fighting word, even between blood kin. When have you ever caught me In a lie?" "Now!" thundered the accusing voice; "this moment! You have been giving me to understand that your sin ful rebellion at Beersheba was the worst that could be charged agalflnst you. Here, at your own home, when your mother had Just been spared to you by the mercies of the God whoso commandments you set at naught, you have been wallowing In sin In crime!" "If I can sit here nnd take that from you, it's because It isn't so." "Wretched boy! Out of your own mouth you shall be convicted. Where were you on Wednesday morning?" "I was at home most of the time; between 10 o'clock and noon I was on the mountain." "There were three of you: a hard ened, degraded boy, a woman no less wicked and abandoned, and the devil who tempted you." "It's a lie! I Just happened to meet Nan Bryerson at the spring under the big rock. I don't have Lo defend my self! If you can believe I'm that low down, you're welcome to!" Then, ab ruptly: "I reckon we'd better be going on home; they'll be waiting dinner for us at the house." He got on his feet with that, but the accuser was still confronting him, with the dark eyes glowing and a monitory finger pointed to detain him. "Not yet, Thomas Gordon; there Is a duty laid on me. I had hoped anJ prayed that I might find you repent ant; you are not repentant Jour fath er has a letter from Doctor Tollivar; the doors of Beersheba are open to you again. 1 had hoped" The pause was not for effect It was merely that the man and the kinsman fn Silas Crafts had throttled the righteous Judge. "It breaks my heart Thomas, but 1 must say 1L You have put It out of your power to Bay with the Psalmist, T will wash mine hands in lnnocency: so will I compass thine altar, O Lord.' You must give up all thoughts of going back to Beersheba." "Don't trouble yourself," said Tom, with more bravado. "I wouldn't go back there If It was the only place on Prth." Then suddenly: "Who was it that told on me, Uncle Silas." Never mind about that It was one who could have no object in misstat ing the fact which you have not do nled. Let us go home." (To be continued.) STANDARD OF LIVING. Illulier in the Vnlkd States Than In Enropean Cnnntrlea. Half the families of the country live In their own homes. No great Euro pean nation aproaches this proportion except France. A small part of north ern Italy has peasant proprietors; Ire land may have' them under the land act. The tenements of New York com pare favorably with Liverpool's or Berlin's, with their large percentage ot one and two room homes, the New York World says. Our savings bank deposits per In habitant are surpassed by those ot Norway, Denmark and Switzerland, but this test is almost valueless. We have perhaps one-tenth as many pau pers in proportion as Great Britain, In New York public charity is a big Item. In the budget of Berlin it is a big one. Where paupers are plenty living standards are low. Americans in cities are better dressed to the eye than people abroad, though the tariff on woolens deprives many of warm underclothing. Yet Robert Blair, education officer for Lon don, says: "Of the 700.000 children In London schools, approximately 60, 000 appear to be necessitous In the winter season." There Is no such pro portion here. For education we spend much more than other nations- whether with better results than Ger many or Switzerland is disputed There remains the most vital consid eration diet.

Only about one out of every fifteen persons has both eyes In perfect con dition. , The number of horses In the United btates January 1, 1900, was nearly 14,000,000. A healthy horse eats nine times Its weight in food In a year, a healthy sheep six times. A new putty knife, the Invention of a New Yorker, has a scraper attached to remove the surplus putty. Trench mines yielded 37,971,758 metric tons of coal last year. 687,374 tons more than tho year before. A Louisiana man has patented a combined pickle fork and tongs, the latter operated by a ring In the handle.

DRINKING TUBE IS SANITARY So Arranged That When Mouthpiece Is on Level With Person's Mouth Water Spouts Gently. A common fault of ordinary sani tary drinking fountains Is the waste of water, but a drinking device of this, and, although only running when In use, it is likewise claimed to be impossible to get a drink from it before, the mouthpiece Is thoroughly cleansed. It is attached to a water pipe in the same manner that a faucet is at tached flush to the wall. When a drink is wanted, the lever Is pushed upward and the mouthpiece forward on a line with the drinker's mouth. The water spouts up gently with a sufficient scouring action to cleanse the mouthpiece and in a stream suf ficiently great to obviate the necessity of touching it with the Hps. In this Fountain Drinking Tube. it embodies the principle of the flow- ing cups which are frequently found on street fountains, with the added advantage that the water is running only when a person is drinking. When the lever is let go the water is auto matically shut off. The Costly Mosquito. Dr. L. O. Howard calls attention to the enormous money losses caused by mosquitoes. The value of real estate in regions Infested by them is reduced beyond calculation. The development cf the whole state of New Jersey, says Doctor Howard, has been held back by the mosquito plague. In several states lands eminently fitted for grazing and dairying cannot be effectively used for such purposes because of the attacks of mosquitoes on the cattle, which re duce the yield of milk. In the vicinity of New York and Philadelphia large areas of laud are rendered almost un inhabitable by swarms of these in sects, and this notwithstanding the advances made In tho destruction of their breeding places, says Youth's Companion. In some parts of the northwestern states horses have to be covered in the daytime with Bheots to protect them from the attacks of mos qultoes. Doctor Howard estimates the cost of house screens In the United States at $10,000,000. The remedy is more effective means of extermina tion. Moving Pictures in Color. The Literary Digest translates from the Paris Nature an account ot a device for producing moving pictures In colors. It is the invention of Wil liam Frlese-Green. He uses filters made of thin celluloid ribbon to take his negative films. The band is dl ylded into sections, colored in the or der, red, green, blue and so on, la definitely. The sensitive film and fll ter ribbon pass the shutter of the camera together as the successive pic tures are taken. The same ribbon is used when the pictures are repro duced on the screen, when if the ma chine is operated swiftly, the per sistence of vision gives the appearance of a single moving picture in natural , color. nun USEFUL BED FOR HOSPITALS f Can Be Lowered or Raited at Head to Any Position Comfortable for Patient. A boon to the bed-ridden and to thotifinndsof hospital patients through out the country Is the Invention of a Kentucky man. This Is a bed which can be raised or lowered at the head to any position comfortable to the pa tient, and having a rest for the Uga In addition. A pair of standards with a crossbar, looking like a horizontal bar on rollers, holds the upper end of the bed suspended. At one side of the standards is a wheel and gear by which the head of the bed may be raised or lowered to change the posl- Turn Crank and Bed Moves. i tton of the person occupying It Run ning up from the foot of the bed Is a T-shapod bar to be placed under the legs of the patient, so that when the bed is tilted at a steep angle he Is kept from sliding downward, the bar beneath his legs giving him the feel ing of being In a reclining chair. Any person who has been forced to lie abed for any length of time, unable to change his position, will appre ciate the relief such a bed will af ford. MOST UNIQUE BUTTON-WATCH In Many Cases It Is Worn Unprotected on Sleeve of Coat Fastened by Shank. One of the most novel of the many novel forms of watches is the button watch Invented by a New York man. The case of this watch is the size and shape of an ordinary button, such as is worn on a man's coat sleeve, but hollow, and the works are inside. The dial is fastened to the case by a Ions, Odd Button Watch. strong shank. There can be a pocket In the cuff of the coat sleeve Into which the little tirao piece will fit, but in some cases it Is made to wear unprotected on the sleeve. Except for the face it would be almost Impos sible to tell It from the other buttons on the coat. Tthere used to be a novelty watch that was worn In the buttonholes of the coat lapel, but this one is used as a regular button. WIND GUIDE FOR AERONAUTS Furnishes Aid Corresponding to Pilot Charts of Ocean Navigator Record of Years. A unique sign of the times Is Dr. Richard Assmann's guide to the winds of Germany, prepared from the rec ords of the direction and force of the winds kept at forty-nine well-distributed stations for an average of nearly twenty-one years. It furnishes the aeronaut with an aid corresponding to the pilot charts of the ocean naviga tor. For each season and each sta tion It shows how often, on the aver age, the wind blows from each of eight directions, and the average frequency of the various degrees of wind be tween a calm and a hurricane. It in dicates the best places and times for making ascents, with the direction air ships without high power will prob ably drift. More than this, it suggests tho best location for airship sheds and ports, and gives evidence that not only are places near the coast unsuit able, but that many Inland stations are uncomfortably stormy. Friedrichs- hafen, chosen by Count Zeppelin for his great sheds, is an unfavorable place for handling the huge airships. The records show that it has an aver age of twenty-four stormy days a year, while Cello has only twenty-two such days, Berlin and Cassel only four, and seven other stations less than ten. New Use for Moving Picture. The moving picture Is now applied to educational purposes. Chemical tests are now exhibited on the screen. There are films Illustrating the elec trolysis of water, the action of nitric acid on silver, ana action of aqua regla on metallic gold, etc. The test tube is thrown on the screen many times enlarged and the chemical ac-. tlon clearly Illustrated. Most un savory but educational Is a film illus trating the peril of the fly. The flies are shown laying eggs in unsavory places, and before the eyes of the spectators the eggs develop in heaps of wriggling maggots. In the final stage the winged fly Is shown in all Its unsanitary glory. Still another film exhibits the acrobatic fly lying on Its back Juggling various articles with Its feet, and even swinging a dumb bell as large as tho Insect itself. n h brq rus I B CP YEARS .
