Labyrinth Constructed Some 3,500 Years Ago Was a Structure of Colossal Size. King Minos, with tils labyrinth on the island of Crete, Is generally sup posed to have been tho originator of the maze idea ; but Egypt has a laby rlnth, too, nnd Egypt manages to hold the record for antiquity In almost ev erything, labyrinths Included. This Egyptian labyrinth Is :i.!00 yenrs old, It Is merely a chaotic mass of rocks piled up in tho debert a few miles out of Medlnet. The outlines of the wnlls merge dimly here and there from tho ruins, and from these out lines, nnd the carvings on the stones, Egyptologists deduce that the laby rinth was built by a certain King Lnbnrys. who was more popularly known as Amenemhnt III. The structure was COO by COO feet. It contained 11,000 rooms, half above ground, half below. Remember that the largest hotel In our present day world boasts about that number of rooms on a dozen Honrs and covers n city square, and some Idea of the size of tho two-story labyrinth can be gained. Nobody has figured out yet why King Amenemhnt built this enormous pal nco or tomb. In the lower story, his tory says, the sarred crocodiles and kings were burled, whllo the upper floor was, n few centuries nftcr King Amenemhnt's time, used as n sent of government. The labyrinth was a wonderful place, one of tho most wonderful In Egypt, If our Ideas of It are correct, and Its greatness was its downfall. Tho citizens of a nonr-by town, who worshiped tho Ichneumon, resented the sacred crocodiles of tho labyrinth And so they made an nttnek upon ono of King Amencmhat'H successors and reduced tho largest structuro in Egypt to n ruin. THE WINDOW LADY By JOSEPHINE S. BROOKS. (. 1120. by McClure New pa per Syndicate ) Of house, close up to the next building. It wns ahvnys quite dark, even In daylight. Laura Cocroft leaned her head upon her hand. She had little time to make new friends. She had little money with wheh to enjoy herself. When she walked In the park she actually looked longingly at the kiddles riding In the awnn boats; u thing she had never done, smrill as It seemed, nnd childish tho pastime. It was always save, save. It was growing very dusky In the lit tle room. After a meager supper the girl pulled down the shnde nt the window and began sorting her work by a feeble dickering gas light. It was eleven o'clock before she finished tired and discouraged; with eyes heavy nnd head weary. , It might have comforted her n little had she known of the many furtive glances her window neighbor, AI Mur dock, hud cast across the opening at her lowered curtain. He had caught a view of her at work, silhouetted on the curtain. "Poor girl I She doesn't seem to have many good times. Then that old Jail of a room must be fearfully dingy," he reflected, turning away from his watch tower. The girl, all unconscious of a sym pathy that would hnve warmed her heart, worked on. "It's a holiday tomorrow," she mused, relief lighting up a little the pretty eyes. "There'll be no nlarra to wnken me, that's one comfort. Guess, nftcr breakfust and my work, I'll take my book and lunch nnd spetid the day In the park. I'll watch the kiddles and envy them." Now It happened that Just at this time Al Murdock was at peace with all the world, nnd nt the same time tilled with sudden pbllunthropy from the fact of a raise In his salary. "I'll stroll over to the park tomorrow and take some of the poor kiddles for a sail In the swan bonts," he declared. Later his energetic tread sounded sburply on the brond stone pathwny across the Common. "I'll be a kid Just for today. Wonder what the fellows would say to see me? 1 1 PEANUT S , ','Z n.. niirn timi r- i 7 ay nu i n wwun CENTER OF MUCH HISTORY A SERVICE MESSAGE liillillllilllllilM j" Farmers' Checking Accounts A checking account Is a business nec essity to every fanner.

She was a little bit of a thing, not moro thnn four feet ten In height, nnd she had been ndopted as the olllce inns- cot from the dny of her nrrlval. She was a capable worker, however, and very soon mnde herself respected for her "gray matter" among the large staff of clerks In the big ofllce of Wheeler & Co.. architects. A too-famlllar office boy had smil ingly saluted her as "Habe" on her sec ond morning In the olflcc, but her freezlngly disdainful reply hnd put an vnd to that Immediately. However, after she had been there some time, It was discovered that she hnd a great fondness for peanuts "Peanut," she therefore became to the entire olllce, nnd Peanut she remained to the end of the chapter. It wns a rulny, slushy morning nnd Peanut, almost late, mnde n vain ef fort to put her umbrella on top of her locker to dry. Guess you need some help, child," said a cheery masculine voice behind her, nnd Pennut stnrtled by unexpect ed sound, wheeled around sharply. The old locker, at best none too steady, lurched forward and crashed to the floor. With a warning cry, the man leaped forward, and with ono nrm shooting out, sent Pennut sprawling nnd safely out of harm's way. Not so fortunate, her rescuer, however, for the heavy locker, as It fell, caught him before he could get out of the way, and sent him to tho floor, his leg pinned fast. "Oh, please, please lie still," she begged, "and I'll try to get you out," nnd In spite of his pnln tho young man's eyes twinkled for the locker wns like a mountain beside the girl. "Guess you'll never move thnt thing," he said ; "but I'll be quiet, and you run downstairs and get some one up here to help." And Peanut rushed away. It proved to be nothing worse thnn a wrenched ankle that resulted from the accident. It was a very subdued Pea nut who clicked nt her typewriter keys all that morning, and although the news of the accident hnd spread like wildfire all over the ofllce, no one as yet had been able to learn the name of the hero.

The pnlaseat Versailles ranks nmong the world's historic centers where nations mnde history. Thero Great Britain first recognized the Inde pendence of the United States. Tho French Revolution was given birth when tho Third Estnte formed n na tional assembly there. William I was crowned German emperor nt Versailles while' Paris was being besieged, nnd representatives of tho civilized world made peace nt this eminent palace with the "Madmnn of Europe." Versailles became historically great by mere chance. Having first served ns a hunting chateau for Louis XIII, It attracted tho next Louis, who planned his residence on so Inrge n scale that the construction of nn aqueduct engaged 30,000 men for mnny yenrs. It later vibrated with the echoes of human dramas, Involving the disaster of Louis XIV and Mario Antoinette. The unhappy Valllcre, tho vainglorious Montespnn, and tho nustcro Mnlntenon successively loved, Infatuated nnd exploited Louis nt Ver sailles. The brllllnnt Pompadour' nnd tho seductive du Parry shone nmong the mistresses at the palace, whllo some 10,000 drunken women from Paris broke through the gates and sent Louis fleeing to the Tullerles.

Al slyly kicked a stone from the path. The girl looked up with recognl tlon In her glance. They aren't your pupils, Lady of the Window?" questioned the young man. "No, oh, no; I pitied them their longing looks toward the bonts. A con genial feeling prompted me," she smiled. "I say, that's too bad," pitied Al. "Lady, there Is n wnn boat return Ing. Will you nnd your retinue favor me by accompanying me on a snll?" Al bowed low. his face one broad smile. "My, yes!" they all chimed. The little girl piped up: "The lady will 'm our princess and you'll be the p-In:e.

With many "obs" from the little ones they circled the pond and little islnnds of sund and shrubs. Al felt repaid by the warm glow at his heart. He escorted Laura to her very door. "Won repeat the good time some dny. Shall we?" he questioned. "You nro most kind to a lone girl. Yes, I shnll dearly love to go," she re plied candidly. It proved but the beginning of better times for tho girl. Kven the drudgery of night work wns lightened by a vision of merry eyes gleaming ncross her papers. Instead of glances across the open ing there were talks and smiles on tho Inside of Laura's room. Al even helped her with her papers. One night Laura's house of cards foil her pleasant dream was over for as she raised her curtain sho saw Bhadowed on tho opposite window two forms embracing each other and acta ally kissing! A stylish girl nt that She lowered the curtain nnd dropped Into n chair. She sat there a while then went sad ly to bed. "I've had my salary raised again, dear Lady of the Window," confided Al, ono ovenlng long after. They were such close friends now. "I saw the dearest bungalow today. It was Inviting a young couple's pre once. Can you imagine for'whom it is waiting?" "Thero Isn't a dark room In It. I asked them to hold It until tomorrow. Shnll 1 engage It?" "For for you and thu other Lady of Your Window?"- sho trombled. "I I think it would bo best rooms are so scarce, you know, especially sunny ones." "There's no other Lady of the Wltv dow but you thero never will be, dear," assured the young mnn. "Hut once I saw tho shadow of of you and another girl, nnd you you " sho faltered and stopped. Tho young man burst Into a laugh of relief. "Why. that's my sister I hadn't seon her since sho was married ami left us. "Shall T hold the bungalow for usl" Laura, with tihtnlug eyes, nodded assent. nround here before," confided Pennut to the other girls In her section, "but I'm going into Mr. Wheeler's room at noon to Inquire about him. I feel that it's my duty." So she rapped timidly at her em ployor's office door, -and In response to a low-voiced "Come In," Peanut en tered. She stopped short In amazement nt the sight which met her eyes. There sat her rescuer of the morning, com fortably leaning bnck In a big office chair, smoking a cigar ids bandaged foot resting on a low stool. Opposite him sat Mr. Wheeler (regarded as a most stern nnd unnpproachable man by nil the olllce force) Just ns comfor tably seated, and smoking Just ns con tentedly. Peanut gazed from one to the other, her confusion growing great cr every moment, nnd sending a most becoming flush Into her cheeks. "I er I enme," she stammered. "And I am very glnd you did " fin lslied tho younger of the two men, smll Ing. "Now, dnd, you enn properly In troduce me to this young lady, whom I handled somewhnt roughly this morn Ing." "Ahem, tills is Miss Mnrjorlo Pierce, Ted, one of our most capable clerks, Miss Pierce, this young man Is my son, who thought to surprise me with a vis It today and succeeded admirably." "Ob, Mr. Wheeler, I am so sorry!" exclaimed the girl earnestly; "It really was all my fault, nnd It's too bad thnt .vour son should have to suffer for my stupidity." "Why. dnd," said Ted, "I gnve poor Miss Pierce such n push It nearly Innd ed her In tho middle of next week." "Yes, true enough," nnswered his fa ther, with a twinkle In his usually keen, gray eyes. "I believe I've heard the name 'Pennut' In connection with Miss Pierce." And Ted Wheeler's eyes begnn to dance. "Oh, Mr. Wheeler that's Just a nick nnmo tho clrls gave rac I never dreamed that you know about it." "Well, Junior, I'm going downstairs to get the machine nnd take you home." said Wbeeler, senior. "I'll leave Miss Pierce here to help you get ready and I'll be back shortly." And he left them. "If you'll tell me where your hat and coat are, I'll get them for you, Mr. Wheeler," and the young man pointed to a closet In tho corner of tho office. Mnrjorlo 'brought them and silently helped tho Junior Wheeler Into his ul eter. He moved obediently as she directed, so that sho could button It ns lie sat In tho chair. "You'd mnko n capital nurse.
