Love's Awakening

Something In ihe masterful way
in wh?Th Prince Georges of Trees
strode into the library at my assent
to his request to come into the
room, suddenly lifted from my spir
its the load of anxiety for the Prin
cess Olina which I had been carry
ing. I had known him only as a
handsome, likable boy with the
charming- manners which his youth
in a European court had given him.
Put it was a resourceful, resolute
man with inches seemingly added to
his stature who tossed an apologetic
rod to me in passing and, crossing
to Olina, took both her hands in his
"I was fearful of this, little oiip,"
he said tenderly in French. "Put
do not concern yourself further. I
will attend to this fellow."
The gesture and the words had
the flavor of the formal, stilted life
which had been theirs. Put Olina's
relieved gasp of "Oh! Georges!" was
as frankly unaffected as any school
girl's and the prince refused her
hands and gave her a reassuring
pat upon the shoulder which was
Ihoronghly American in its brother
ly frankness.
1 "Cheer up, old dear," he said in
English, and despite the, tenseness
of the situation, I found it hard
work to keep from smiling. But I
was able to turn an attentive serious
face to Prince Georges when he put
Mina into a chair with another ad
monition to leave everything to him,
and crossing over to me put tht
same query which Olina had voiced.
"Who is this man who calls him
self Charles Owen?"
"I am very sure that is his real
name," I said, and quickly gave him
all the information concerning Sam
uel Brixton's brother which J pos
sessed. He listened quietly until I
had finished, and then asked

not failed. It wvas many, many miles
s from Farmer rtiown's and Rusty
i had been very many days making
the journey. Hut as he feasted on
hickory nuts, beechnuts and acorns,
he decided that the journey had
been worth while,
i "Now," said he talking to him-
self, for he had no one else to talk
i to, "I must find a place to live. At
least, 1 must find a comtoiiahle
bed. I think I shall stay here. This
f looks to me like a very pood land,
j I imagine thero are some very nice
people living hereabouts, T hope 1
shall find as nice neighbors as I
left back in the Green Forest by ,
Farmer Brown's.'1
' Having eaten all the nuts he t
' could hold, Rusty set about explor- j
ing in quest of a home. After a long'
search, he found a tree that was
hollow and had a nice entrance
fairly high from the ground. Tie
first made quite certain that there
was on one in that hollow tree. Then
he ventured in. There was a bed
or dry leaves. It wasn't much of a
bed, but it was a bed. Rusty curled
Hp on it. He didn't intend io re
main long, because he first wanted
to make sure that that didn't be
long to anybody else. Hut his Plom
ach was full and a full stomach
makes one sleepy. Hardly had Knsty
curled up when his eyes closed and
he was asleep.
It was a very comfortable h-d In
spite of the fact that it was not ry
elaborate. Rusty began to dream
and his dreams were very pleasant
dreams. He dreamed that be found
a woodland, every tree of which was
a nut tree. Kvery tree was loaded
with nuts. There were all kinds nf
'nuts. R seemed as if all Ibe Squir
rels in the world were th'Te. Hut
there was no quarreling, for (here
were nuts enough for all.
Now, t!iit is the nieest kind of a

"Probably it is just some one who

thought Rusty. "If it is any oil"

"Of course," I told him cordially,
for 1 often use that first aid to
solving mental problems, and he
immediately whirled and swung ir.to
a swift rhythmic pacing, his arm
lx?nt like a runner's, his head
thrust slightly forward.
The library is a long room, and
he ranged up and down it for sev
eral minutes while (.Mina watched
him. I was selfishly glad that Mary
could not see him in this exalted
resolute modi and did not know his
real identity, She loved Noel Ye rit -zen,
I w as sure, but she was not
yet old or experienced enough to
estimate h-T values soundly, and the
tall youth pacing the room pos
sessed that indefinable ifiialily which
brings a woman into his arms, even
though she knows in her heart of
hearts that he is not the man who
could make her happy, or who
would be happy with her.
('overtly watching the expression
in Olina's eyes as they followed his
I steady quartering of the room, I re
membered tha't she once had given
me a hint of a fpnuer romantic at
tachment between herself and the
young nephew of her hated old
suitor, the king of Trees, and I
knew that though Georges had come
to seek her at the behest of her
mother, he had sent misleading re
ports back to the court of Trans
vania and protected Olina in her in
cognito. Then, intoxicated with the
i novelty and freedom of American
life, they had substituted Mary's
imago and Noel's for each other's in
their hearts. But I wondered hope
fully, as I had done before, whether
I that old affection might not still be
smoldering beneath the ashes of in
difference which they had heaped
upon it.

hen a huuiun being is bitten by
a rat, weasel, cat, ferret, squirrel or
other animal of this type, he not
infrequently develops a disease as
sociated with a Bcrni found fre
quently in ihe body of the rat.
Cases of rat bile fever have been
reported most frequently from Ja
pan, where the nature of the hous
ing of the people makes it not in
frequent for a rat to bile a human
bei ng.
In the I'nited States, the dis
ease occurs seldom, but cases have
been reports from various places.
Some of the saddest are those in
which children are attacked when
lift alone in slum districts.
Instances hae been seen in
w hich babies have been bitten
many times about the body and in
which the disease rat-bite fever
has developed subsequently.
The germ that causes the disease
is a spiral shaped organism found
in three per cent of a vast number
of common brown rals in Japan,
the bodies of which were examined
by baelerioloKists.
from 1 it to -7 days after a per
son has been bitten, he develops
the general symptoms of disease
such as headache and pains In Ihe
muscles: the place of the bite,
which has become healed, suddenly
becomes painful, swollen and bluish-red
in color, and the lymph
glands in the vicinity swell and be
come 1emr.
funnily there is fever and all of
the signs of pros'ration associated
with infectious disease. The con
stitutional effects are severe, since
in some cases as long as three
months may be required for re
covery. Ttecause (.f the unusual nature of
the disease rat-bite f.ver is some
times confused with erysipelas or
malaria or other infections, but the
definite ascertaining of the fact
that the person has been bitten !
a rat and the general swelling ar
inflammation at the point of the
bite serve to establish definitely its
n;ii lire.
This disease has been known in
Japan for many years, and, fact,
was so common there that the Jap
anese had a special name for it;
namely "sodoku."
As long ago as 1 S 4 n a case was
described in the Vnited States, but
numerous rases since have been
described in American literature.
Cases were quite frequent in the
trenches during the World War
and during the last 10 years the
disease has been reported in prac
tically all of the countries in the
w orld.

Advocates Fear For Fliers

One nf I.ady Mary Heath's flying
NEA Service Writer
New York, Nov. 16. "Kear is
the best ballast any aviator can
That is the astounding opinion of j
Lady Mary Heath, England's Lady
Lindy, recently arrived here for a
flying tour of America.
"The flyer who dies not know
fear makes a careless one," Lady
Heath continued, speaking in quick,
clipped tones with a musical quality
one remembers.
"Fear really is the most whole
some emotion in the world. 1 know
it makes me an extremely careful
pilot, one that does not take un
necessary chances, and so, of course,
a safer one," she smiled.
It seemed an amazing statement
coming from her. Hut. then, she
herself is a surprise. Hearing of I
her feats one is unprepared for t he j
slender, young woman in smart I
Taris tweeds and a chic, original
bob to her chestnut hair.
Holds s,,i i Altitude Here Mil
She holds the world record for
solo altitude lightweight aeroplane
flying, of 24.700 feet.
She is the intrepid flyer w ho made
an 1 1,000 mile solo flight in a little
Avoo-Avion plane from Cape Towui,
South Africa, to London, over
Africa's wildest jungles. Seeing her
you believe the tak-s of how- she
nonehanantly read a book and took
off her shoes to cool her feet when
over the hottest of the jungles!
Amelia Earhart now owns the plane
made famous by this flight.
Lady Heath it was who, un
daunted by international laws for
bidding women to hold commercial
pilots' licenses cajoled ambassadors
from France, Kngland. Spain. Italy.
Czecho-Slovakia and other Furopean
countries to change the law and
give her hers!
Last, but not least, this young
woman is the kind of aviatriv who
when she wants a fur Hying outfit
goes out and shoots her own. One
of her cutest is a stunning long
coat, helmet and gauntleets of leo
pard skin, trimmed with young lion,
made of animals she shot in Central
Africa. She humorously calls it her
"Klinor Glynn" costume.
"How did I go into aviation?
l'eoplc who have chenille lace dresses seem to wear them frequently
as if they wanted a short life and a merry one for them. As a matter of
fact chenille lace is supposed to be one of the most fragile fabrics turned
out. Nevertheless much of it Is worn. There, is a lipstick red Mi rand
model one sees frequently at smart dancing places. It has straight lines
and elongated sides with fullness centered in front. The decolletage Is
straight with three narrow little straps over the shoulder.
and Shooting Records In
Prove That She Doesn't
She Preaches, -
Mills has a real Bedouin cap.
Well, you might say I 'jumped into
it," she smiled. Kor it was because
she won the world record for the
woman's high jump that she started
to tour Kurope to organize women'
athletic associations and, by chance,
chose airplanes for transportation
instead of trains. Once in the air
she loved it.
Hcally, Iady Heath is a scientific
farmer who "took the air." In
1921 she received her degree in
agriculture at Dublin University.
She even taught a while.
"My training was never lost," she
staunchly maintained. "Once or
twice my engine has tailed over a
held of crops and a knowledge of
the kind of soil to expect was quite
useful in landing. Higher matbe-.
matics the aviator surely needs.
And most useful of all is my sur
veying, with its knowledge of maps
and how- to read them."
Since learning to fly in 19:5,
Lady Heath has more than 1,200
solo hours in the air to her credit,
holds the record for landing in more
countries in one day than any oilier
(lier in Kngland. Scotland. Ireland
and Wales has written a book on
aviation, some poem's that came to
her while in the ajr and delivered
a number of lectures on the advan
tasres women have in aviation. She
herself uses a plane instead of a
ear. When she hoard Lindy had
made the Atlantic, for instance, she
hopped in her piano and went to
meet him. I'nfortunately. she
missed him.
"Woiulnrul Opportunities"
"There are woudei-ful opportuni
ties for women," she said. "A
commerciaj pilots, demonstrators,
stunt flyers, and pleasure pilots."
Asked if she was a militant fcml.
nist. she answered: "Women really
have babies. If they can't, let them
fly." Then she changed it a bit.
"Let's say." she suggested. "Wom
an's place is in the home. Failing
that the airdrome."
