CHAPTER XIII.
Dinner at Nutwoods.
"Then, with such an Inducement,"
laid Winstanley, gravely, "I shall end
my shooting early in the day. I am
devoted to chestnuts. Since you are
rash enough to tell me there are any
going, you mustn't blame me for the
result."
Her eyes danced demurely, and he
thought the little dimple in her chin
the most delightful thing he had ever
beheld. He was so rapt in contempla
tion of it that he started when the ad
miral's shot addressed him. "Now,
then, Winstanley, if you're ready, the
dogs are, and we'd better make a
start."
Winstanley shot but poorly that day.
The baron did far better, to his joy.
He earned the commendation of the
keepers as "a straight shot for a fur
riner, though a bit 'asty and rash."
He was so enraptured by his first day
among English partridges that he half
forgot the commission he had in hand.
He was the kind of tool that can be
worked by a strong hand over it, but
Is useless when left to act by itself.
The chief had not chosen with his
usual discretion when he took him for
such fine work.
Winstanley and ho were seldom to
gether, nid then there was no chance
for speech. At lunch he was so bent
on reliting his exploits to Mrs. Sliut
Uewnite and Ursula, both of whom lis
tened with polite Interest to his story,
that he did not even attempt to make
his attack upon her. When he came
In to tea with the admiral, at the wan
ing of the gray afternoon light, Win
stanley was unaccountably missing,
and tliey both speculated where he
might be. It was only when they
came past the fire-lit windows of the
drawing room, where the red flame
flung a flood on wall and ceiling, that
their wonder was put to rest. There
sat the missing man, on the bearskin
hearthrug, scorching his face and
burning his fingers with infinite zest.
He picked up chestnuts from the em
bers and dropped them in haste again,
shaking his hand ti-vX a rueful an
guish, while Miss Hamilton laughed by
his side. They were both as merry
and as happy as two children in the
nursery, and Mrs. Shuttlewaite looked
on from behind the petticoat she was
knitting in mild complacency.
"Halloa! What's come to you?"
asked the admiral, as he fussed into
the room behind his other guest. "We
lost you over the brow of the hill and
thought you'd strayed. What is all
this? Dropped anything into the fire,
my dear, eh? .Get the tongs to pull it
out. Don't let Winstanley burn his
fingers that's a ridiculous thing to
do."
"He likes it," said Ursula demurely.
Or, at least, he says he does."
"And I do, too! I adore it!" cried
the baron, hastening forward. "Let
me also burn mine."
"By all means," said Winstanley,
getting up and ostentatiously yielding
his place. "You're just in the nick of
time, then Miss Hamilton has done
all she wants. You can burn your
fingers to the top of your wishes—
can't he, Mrs. Shuttlewaite? Mean
while, Miss Hamilton la going to pour
out the tea for us and I'm going to
carry it round."
He had undoubtedly a detestlble
way with him, this general's aide-de
camp. He carried the world as if it
belonged to him, and he was like a
wall of adamant before one, whichever
way one turned. The baron found his
chestnut roasting pall when he was
left to enjoy it alone. He left the
hearthrug and came over to the low
chair beside the tea tTay as soon as he
decently could.
^Winstanley had perforce to go and
talk to his hostess, since the baron
would not. He listened with a divid
ed attention to her harmless talk about
missions and the new church they
were building in Southsea. He was
aware of answering with some absent
mindedness, and of trying to catch
Ursula's words as she spoke to the
baron. That self-satisfled person
thought he was making excellent
headway in the good graces of Miss
Hamilton., She was nuite a typical
English girl, unlike what one found
anywhere else he told himself. So
simple, and yet so self-possessed not
an ingenue, yet not a woman of the
world. She had none of the affecta
tions and the wiles that he was used
to in femininity. She looked at him
with clear, direct eyes, that had no
eide glances in them, and no hidden
Sepths. She was almost disconcerting
In hek- directness, like a lady-like boy.
But when she came down to dinner
presently, In the soft, pale heliotrope
und silver frock that had replaced the
shooting skirt, he found her adorable.
Bhe looked like the woman he was
used to, In the soft grace of her move
ments and the dainty charm of her
ways. Like them, yet possessing
something that they did not possess, a
freshness, an unconsciousness that
was the Anal attraction of all. He

him to his hostess, while his host
walked in with Miss Hamilton on his
arm he would ratner have^been Win
stanley, to sit beside her and share
half her talk.
It was after the ladies had with
drawn that he counted on his oppor
tunity. A fourth guest had arrived,
after the soap was served—a neigh
boring curate, full of apologies for be
ing late. Him the admiral engaged in
earnest conversation over the port and
claret, and the baron moved his chair
close to that of Winstanley and re
newed his attack.
It proved more hopeless than in the
morning. Winstanley was getting dis
tinctly bored by him. He thought him
on impertinent, prying little beggar,
who asked too personal questions. At
an offer from the baron to visit him at
Government house, he administered a
distinct snub. It was directly after
that the baron got up and left the ta
ble, and Winstanley, rising to follow,
was stopped by his host.
"Sit down! Sit down! I want you
to stay and keep us company. Maule
verer came late, and he's been hurried
through his dinner too fast, anyway.
We'll join the ladies In good time
there's no hurry. That Italian fellow
—or is he a Frenchman?—he's gone
in, so they won't feel neglected. A
queer little fellow, though a straight
shot. You know all about him, of
course, or you wouldn't have stood
sponsor for him?"
"I beg your pardon," said Winstan
ley, with some pardonable irritation.
"I did nothing of the sort. I think you
were the one, sir, if I am not mistak
en, who introduced him first."
"Ah, perhaps it may be. I forget
how it was. Anyway, I don't know
that I'm greatly taken with him, now
that he's here. What do you think of
him yourself, putting aside the fact
that he's a foreigner? That, of course,
he can't help It's hardly fair to throw
It in his teeth."
"If you ask me," responded Win
stanley, goaded by the fancy that the
baron was at that moment sitting by
the side of Ursula and turning over
the leaves for her as she sang, "I don't
think much of him. A bounder, rath
er, it's my Impression. I don't want
to be unduly harvJ''
"Tut, tut!" said '.ae admiral, remon
stratlngly. "I think you are a bit se
vere. Of course, one must allow for
the fact that these Italians and Ger
mans and the rest don't go to Eton
and Oxford their traditions and bring
ing up are different from ours. Take
this man, for instance, and one might
fancy he wasn't quite In Debrltt, cer
tainly. But, afte rail, any one who
can, bring down his twelve brace in
the day isn't to be despised, whatever
his disadvantages may have been."
Winstanley only smiled a little grim
ly, while the curate hesitatingly re
marked that one could not help notic
ing how In all those countries where
papal rule prevailed people were a
couple of centuries still behind the
world.
"One thing goes against your argu
ment, padre," said the admiral, with
a faint chuckle. "This fellow doesn't
seem to have been behindhand in get
ting back to the ladies. You'd better
follow Mm up, Winstanley, if you
don't want, to find yourself left."
Winstanley watted for no further
bidding. He crossed the hall and
opened the door of the drawing room.
His quick eye lit on Ursula and the
baron, standing together near the win
dow,'In a conversation which seemed
to be somewhat eager on his side and
reluctant on hers, if one could judge
from the first cursory glance.
T-rxona had found the ladles finish
ing their coffee, and Mrs. Shuttlewaite
Uksd a little interval of repose after
that, before she exerted herself to en
tertain her guests. She half closed
her eyes ar.d folded her hands In plac
id calm, with a smile at the young
pepole which intimated that she did
not intend to be disturbed. 'Nothing
loth, the baron followed Uisula to the
farther end of the room. She began
to point out some Chinese curios to
him, but he displayed scanty atten
tion.
"That is a very confidential position
Capt. Winstanley has here," he began.
"Very trusted he must be, and highly
thought of by the general."
Ursula wae a little surprised at the
suddenness of the eulogy, but she was
as much gratified as any woman would
be to hear the praises of a man in
whom she took a special Interest, bo
she bent an encouraging ear. "I sup
pose he is much trusted and liked at
Government house—yes, certainly. I
think Capt. Winstanley Is & very pop
ular A. D. C."
"Oh, not only popular, the general
no doubt trusts him with private mat
ters. Now, for instance, there are
those who say that he Is, if course, In
the secret of this new discovery the
general has made. But others, they
are envious of his goort favor, they
laugh at such an Idea, and say that, of
course, that would be absurd. They
pretend to make little of him, and will
not believe that he Is considered
worthy of trust." A slightly indignant
tinge of color rose in Ursula's cheek.
The baron saw It with an observant
eye.
"Not worthy of trust!" she repeated.
Sic
T'•?»":-•'-^r%«
It was silly to mind, but she could not
help being stung by such a suggestion,
as he had meant her to be. No one
who knew Capt. Winstanley could
make such a reflection. Of course, he
has every confidence placed in him."
"Even no doubt to the extent of this
new discovery?"
She gave an impatient little move
ment. "I know nothing about that at
all. I mean that, of course, he has a
confidential position at Government
house from old friendship, quite apart
from his official one."
"Ah, precisely! And he tells you
all about it, probably?" There was
something in the words and the man
ner that offended Ursula. She stiff
ened slightly as she answered: "Capt,
Winstanley and I are friends."
"Exactly! That is what I mean.
You would like to prove to these de
tractors of his that he is in a better
position with those above him than
they will admit. It is easy find out
from him if he is not in this secret
they speak about. Ask him if he is
not the general's confident. Perhaps
he will even tell you something about
it that the rest of the world does not
know. That would make you able to
sot them all right whe nthey say these
things against him—it would be a tri
umph for his friends."
Ursula's color was still higher as
she turned and looked at him with a
dignified surprise. "I don't think I un
derstand you," she said, coldly. "You
cannot mean what you seem to. You
cannot be suggesting that I should
pry into Capt. Winstanley's private
affairs?"
He shrugged his shoulder's and open
ed his hands with a gesture of depre
cation. "Ah, the gallant captain would
not mind from you." The tone, the
manner, the words were all offensive,
whether he meant it or not. Ursula
gave him a glance of indignation and
turned away.
It was as she turned and he started
after her with another murmured
something below his breath, that Win
stanley came in. He saw Ursula's
movement of recoil and the half-famil
iar smile of the baron. It struck him
instantly that the fellow had had too
much champagne. It was, in fact, the
wine that had loosed his tongue, as he
had counted on its doing for Winstan
ley. He had blundered clumsSy, it Is
true, but he would never have been so
dense with a cool head—it was the ad
miral's port that had done It. Win
Stanley grasped the situation in a
flash.

(To Be Continued.)
The Young Idea.
A young woman who teaches a class
in a Jersey City Sunday school was
recently talking to her pupils relative
to the desirability of increasing its
membership. When she invited the
co-operation to that end of the several
members, the youngster nearest her
shook his head dubiously.
"I might git one boy in our neigh
borhood to come," he explained, "but
all the rest ldn lick me."
Richard's Reasoning.
Richard startled his mother, one
day, by asking: "How does it come
that Ned's papa is Mr. Artman through
the week and Jesus on Sunday?"
"Why, Richard, he is always Mr.
Artman. He Isn't Jesus."
"Yes, he Is. On Sundays we sing
'Give your pennies all to Jesus,' and
then Mr. Artman com^s 'round and
gets 'em."
Champagne and Conversation.
The genial flow of conversation
which follows the circulation of the
champagne at the dinner table Is due,
according to Prof. Sterling, not to
stimulation, but to the paralysis of the
inhibitory centers, those cerebral
brakes which prevent our tongues and
our emotions from running away with
us.
No Horns Necessary.
Gunner—I wonder why nature de
veloped the sense of smell so much
stronger in animals than in man?
I'uppose a man had the scent of a
deer.
Guyer—It would be great. Then he
could jump when he dectedted the
scent of gasoline two miles away.v
V, Poor Judgment.
The advertising manager was In a
towering rage.
"What's the trouble?" they asked.
"Why, they went and placed our
prima denna's testimonial for a cold
cure on the same page with the an
nouncement that she had sore throat
and couldn't sing."
Preferred Numbers.
"How will you have your aig cook
ed?" asked the waiter.
"My what?"
"I said, how will you have your alg
cooked?"
"Young lady," said the customer,
you speak in a singular fashion. Can't
you make it plural?"
Not Inconsistent.
Nell—You don't mean to say you're
going to marry blm?
Belle—Yes.
Nell—The Idea! Why, you said you

THE SECRET OF YOUTH.
Dne Reason Hard-Worked Actress
Keeps Her Youth and Beauty Be
cause She Doesn't Worry.
a woman who tried to preserve her
beauty by a course ol night rides in
railroad trains, poor and poorly pre
pared food at queer hotels, three or
four hours' work each night In badly
ventilated surroundings filled with
darfts, and attended all the time by
a high nervous strain, couldn't be
blamed if she did not look her best
all the time.
Yet the life of the actress is filled
with all these things, an*1, the longevi
ty of the actress' beauty is phenome
nal, remarks a writer in the Chicago
Tribune. One of the answers to the
conundrum is that the woman of the
stage regards worry as excess bag
gage that she will not carry.
Eliminating worry and regarding
beauty as an end rather than a means
has given the stage a flower garden of
feminine loveliness. It is doubtful
whether there are many women in the
world who at Sarah Bernhardt's age
could do her work, do it one-tenth as
well, and retain one-twentieth of the
beauty that still encircles the divine
Sarah's blond tresses. Amelia Sum
merville would laugh if she were
linked with Bernhardt, yet she Is one
of many actresses who have actually
reconstructed themselves to keep up
with the theatrical procession. Those
who remember her as "The Mountain
Maid" in Henry E. Dixey's great suc
cess, "Adonis," knew her as a slender
young woman of exceedingly great
pulchritude. Now, after years, sne has
returned to the stage, which she left
because she had become too corpulent,
find she is lighter by many, many
pounds than she was. Lillian Russell's
good looks and the way she keeps
them are classic. Lily Langtry, al
beit she played behind softly tinted
footlights the last time she was in the
United States, still retains most of the
attractiveness that made her known
all over the world as "The Jersey
Lily." There are other examples with
out number.
Actresses banish worry as much as
they can, yet there are among them
women who look upon the first pre
sentation of a new play with a sort of
dread that becomes hysteria upon
slight provocation. The worries of life
are many, and it takes a strong spirit
to subdue them all. The physical in
conveniences forced upon women of
the stage are not known nor under
stood by women who lead sheltered
lives. Body wearing and nerve rack
ing- rehearsals begin the season for
them. They are not fully paid for
them, and, after a hot and exhausting
summer, they are often in bad physi
cal condition for hours of work daily
in overheated rooms. When the play
is produced there begins a series of
long railroad jumps, often over bad
railroads, and not always in sleeping
or parlor cars. The hotels in the
smaller towns are often dyspepsia
breeders of the worst possible descrip
tion. Working at night is not good
for anybody, tne doctors will tell you.
Yet the actress has to work at least
six nights a week, often seven, with
always one matinee performance, al
most always two, and sometimes one
every day. The limit of matinees
seems to have been reached in three a
day, which was the bill of fare for one
of the days of "The Lion and the
Mouse," during its last run at Pow
ers' theater. Then there are always
rehearsals, and careful attention to
clothing necessitates much work and
not a. little worry.
Lillian Russell and many other
women of the stage have turned to
Christian Science. Others take up
mental culture in one form or another,
all striving to place mind over mat
ter, and so eliminate many of the
thorns that otherwise would get Into
their flesh.
They emerge from their hard toil
healthy and happy. A surprisingly
small number of them fall ill, when all
their hardships are taken Into consid
eration. "Days off" are unknown ex
cept in the rarest instances. Little
Edna Wallace Hopper took a day off
to go to the races In New York two
jyears ago, and paid a fine amounting
Ito the average matinee receipts of
"The Sliver Slipper." Every actress is
fined for every performance she
misses. The understudy always is
waiting, and the actresses go on work
ing and looking well when many
women not In the theatrical business
would be at home in a physician's
care. Still, they retain their beauty.
Almost without exception they are
much older than they look—or, to put
It more gallantly, look much younger
than they are—and the way they
achieve that result Is one of the puz
zles that no man can solve.
Covert Coat.
A oovert coat Is always a covert coal
and provided it Is made of good ma
terial and by a good tailor it Is always
accepted as a smart garment for cer
tain uses. The old model with fittea
back and straight fly front holds it?
own, and though the ready made mod
els strain after originality by adding
odd strappings and peculiarities of cut
the best tailors counsel absolute sever
ity in such a coat, the cut and finish
alone being trusted to give the neces
sary cachet.

The Favorite'® Chances.
Senator La Follette was displeased
with an answer .that had given to one
of his questions.
"That is a most unsatisfactory'" an
swer," he said. "It tells no more than
the answer of the young lady at the
races.
"The races were crowded. The
young lady had a place where she
could see well, but her escort, from
his place, could see nothing.
"And, at the most exciting point of
the principal race, the young man
cried excitingly:
'Can you see If the favorite's in
front?'
'It's In front at one end,' the young
lady replied, 'but I can't tell which
end it is.'
BUYING PAINT.
Springtime—after the weather has
become well settled—is painting time.
There is no dust flying, no insects
are in the air at that time ready to
commit suicide by suffocation in the
coat of fresh paint. The atmospheric
conditions are also favorable at that
season for proper drying and increased
life of the paint.
It should be a habit with every prop
erty owner every spring to look over
his buildings, etc., and see if they need
repainting not merely to see if they
"will go another year," but whether
the time has not come for putting in
the proverbial "stitch in time" which
shall eventually "save nine." For one
coat of paint applied just a little be
fore it is actually needed will often
save most of the paint on the building
by preventing It from letting go and
causing endless trouble and expense.
Paint lets go because linseed oil,
which is the "cement" that holds all
good paint together, gradually decays
or oxidizes, just as iron exposed to
air and dampness will slowly decay or
oxidize. The water and oxygen in the
air are the cause of the trouble in both
cases, and the only reason, outside ot
its beautifying effect, that we apply
paint to wood or iron is because we
want to keep water and air away from
them. Live paint, that is paint in
which the linseed oil Is still oily, does
this very effectually but dead paint,
that is paint in which the oil Is no
longer oily, Is no more Impervious to
air and water than a single thickness
of cheesecloth would be. If then we
apply a fresh coat of oily paint before
the old paint is dead, the oil from the
new coat will penetrate the old coat,
and the whole coating will once more
become alive and this method of ren
ovation may go on indefinitely.
This explains why it is better econ
omy to repaint a little before it be
comes absolutely necessary than a
little after. "When the paint is once
dead the fresh coat will pull the whole
coating off.
In the days when repainting meant
a general turning of things upside
down, a two-weeks' "cluttering up" of
the place with kegs, cans and pails,
a lot of inflammable and ill-smelling
materials standing around, etc., the
dread of painting time was natural.
So was the dread of soap-making time,
of shirt-making time, of candle-mould
ing time and the like. But we live in
an age when soap comes from the
store better and cheaper than we can
make It, when shirts are sold ready
made for less than we can buy the
materials, when we can burn coal oil
or gas cheaper than we can make tal
low candles, and when all we have to
do when we want to repaint is to pick
out our colors from the card at the
store and pay the painter for putting
on the paint.
When it comes to picking out the
paint it is not necessary that one
should be a paint chemist, any more
than one should be an oil chemist
when buying kerosene, or a depart
ment store buyer when selecting
shirts, or a soap chemist when buying
soap. All that is necessary to insure
a fair show is some knowledge of the
character of our paint dealer and the
reputation and standing of the maker
of the paint offered. Nor must one
expect to buy a pure linseed oil paint
for the price of linseed oil alone. It
can be taken for granted when any
one offers to sell dollar bills at a dis
count, he Is baiting a hook for "suck
erB." So it can be taken for granted
when anyone—whether mail order
house, paint manufacturer or dealer—
offers paint too cheap, he is bidding
for the trade of "suckers," no matter
what his promises.
But paints Bold In responsible stores
under the brands of reputable manu
facturers are all good products, differ
ing from one another In the less im
portant matter of the solid pigments
contained, but practically alike In hav
ing their liquid portions composed es
sentially of pure linseed oil. The com
petition of the better class of paints
has driven inferior goods practically
out of the market, and no manufac
turer of standing now puts out a poor
paint, under his own name at least..
As to guarantees on paint, they can
be taken for what they are worth.
Any reputable manufacturer will make
good any defect actually traceable to
the paint itself and not to improper
use or treatment of it. The really im
portant guarantee which the paint
buyer should exact from his dealer Is
that the paint Is made by a manufac
turer that knows his business, and
that the paint itself has a record. If
he secures this guarantee he can af
ford to chance the rest of it—the p&int
will undoubtedly give good service If
properly applied according to direc
tions.

The Pasturing
of Rape
11
Prof. Thomas Shaw Points Oat the
Best and Safest Methods for
Cattle, Sheep and Hogs.
WA
Rape furnishes fine pasture for
horses, cattle, sheep and swine, also
fowls. But some care is necessary in
grazing it down with cattle or sheep,
lest bloating should result. Many val
uable sheep have thus been lost, and
in some instances cattle. They eat
ravenously of the plant, as they be
come very fond of it, and when taken
thus freely on an empty stomach, gas
is generated to such an extent that
soon the animal dies from suffocation
if not promptly relieved.
The conditions that favor bloat are,
much succulence in the rape, damp
ness on the plants from dew or rain,
and feeding upon the rape, while the
stomach is empty. I have noticed that
the tendency to produce bloat in rape
is much greater in the damp climate of
Ontario than in the drier climate of
the upper Mississippi basin. But the
danger is sometimes present in the lat
ter area as well as in the former.
The danger is also greater where
the rape plants are immature and es
pecially when the lack of maturity Is
considerable. When sheep are turned
in to graze upon naif-grown rape, the
danger of loss is much greater than
when the rape is grown and has a
large amount of stalk. The danger i»
considerably greater when the rape
plants are wet.
When sheep and cattle are turned in
to graze on rape, the following cau
tion should be observed. They should
not be allowed to go into the rape
while hungry at any time. This is es
pecially true when the grazing first
begins. The plan sometimes adopted
is to feed the animals some rape food
and then turn t-hem into the rape field
and leave them there day and night.
A second method is to turn into the
rape for a short time and then remove
the animals, leaving them in the rape
pasture for a longer season ea:h day
The same is true of rape grown In
mixtures. In some Instances it Is
sown along with corn, or sorghum or
millet, to provide grazing, and when
thus grown the hazard is reduced just
in proportion as the other foods are
present. It should be remembered,
however, that under some condition^
the element of hazard may still be
present, even when the rape plants
grow among other food. Particularly
is this true in seasons when the food
is very succulent.
A grass pasture at hand is an ex
cellent aid to a rape pasture, even
though the grass should have lost
much of Its succulence. This is apt
to be the case in the early autumn,
which Is the seasen when rape is more
commonly ready for being turned in
upon.
Usually the plan is best that turns
sheep onto rape when it is well-grown.
The rape provides more food when
grazed down under these conditions
than when grazed earlier, and then
again after it has grown up more or
less. It is probable, however, that
swine will do better on rape when
turned somewhat earlier. They pre
fer rape leaves green and succulent.
Sheep fatten better on rape that has
produced much of stem. But rape
should not be grazed by any kind ol
