Who Stole The Earth” By W. Ihlt Whitt. CHAPTER LXII. The days that followed the hanging of Schaur wore hu»v olio*, not onlv for Strong, but th«* hondu or eveo other govern men t of Europe. Apart from this, he received I rout Felice dally new* of Diana, lie learn ed that ah** wah well, but greatly «b’- pleased In spirit because of the » lose confinement to which the cx-king sub- Jerted her. And In her own wav Felice urged Strong to return and resrue Diana from the oppression which waa weigh ing on her spirits And as the days went by the mes sages grew more urgent. ’I he ex king apparently was bitterly and remorse lessly pursuing Ills pulley of making out Pianu to he Insane. So success ful, indeed, waa lit* In this cowardly treatment of ins daughter that from Fellre’a letter * It was e; to .»eo that the princess was becoming tapluly hysterical. This greatly preyed upon Strong's mind, but he wpn compelled to put oft' any steps to release Diana irom her Imprisonment and from the tortures which she was suffering, beeauac the times were critical, and his absence from Bomberg even for a day would have plunged him into difficult us with which it would have been almost im possible to cope. Fortunately, the people look the ex ecution of Schaur very calmly, and toward the end of the week the city had almost resumed lis normal aspect except that building operations were in progress ou every side. There was. however, over all an air of great uneasiness. News came through from Berlin. Vienna, Paris. Bn<l even from The Hague Itself, that ill** sittings at the contercnco of the powers there were long and acrimoni ous. And then came the news that it had been decided to crush Strong, no mat ter at what cost, even to the extent of wiping out the entire population of the country which he had compelled to accept him as a ruler. From Berlin, Parii. Vienna and Borne came tidings of the mobilization of troops, and the remains of tin shat tered forces of the old King of Syl van in had been again massed some miles beyond the frontier, where they awaited the arrival of the great arm ies from Husain, Austria and Her inanv. Meantime, strong had lest not a run ment In setting to work on ’he build ing of other airship.'. Inuiglcy was lodged on the balloon ground, and there, with the best engineers that Strong could procure- sont** at nis bidding came from England he push ed forward at top speed the construe tlon of three more airships e.actly ou the model of the Victor. The work was comparatively sim ple it was only a question of dupli cating the different parts of which ihe Victor was composed, and Strom; felt pretty confident that to* 1 th r ei* ships would bo ready within a fort night. , Dally the Victor anile I overhead, and her presence acted a3 a constant reminder to the people of Bomberg. and of Buikania in general, of the un limited power wdiich Strong wielded, and so any desire to defy him was gradually worn down. At the last, indeed, the people even accepted hint as u man on whom had best rely. Strong's life at the palace was sim ple in the extreme. I!*’ rose early and went to bed late, lie worked both by day and by night, strengthening his resources and generally pla< ing Bal l-.ania in a position to withstand the shock ol battle which must com*' when the hosts of Europe moved to the at tack.

The Crime of i x ravagant Funerals By DOROTHY DIX- In no p'a»e on rarih Is the folly *u 1 ;*% lifun as bldcpui* as w hen it tuoc-ki ns from the grave. One would limp; t list In the an fill presence of deHtjo human being. would blur th« ir vui - Hj ihelr pretensions, tb**lr love of dbplay swept from them, and fo ot) <e, at o. on hi be simple and t»in< ere. This in far enough from bring Urn ease. Grotesquely inappropriate as u is, when one of it 4 loved ones dies 1' tin very time that the average fantli: )>• most filled wiiii emulation 10 ouido Its neighbors ill parade, and so the show funeral is just us common as ta - shew wedding In it* grief the childish human mind turns to the *pe» larular for relief, and so wo lay th< dead body In an or nut • cas-ket. we heap costly flowers above li, and with Mack draped hearae ami horses with nodding plumes, and with sable garments, ami all the expensive pharapbernalia of woe wo carry the poor clay to the grave, and give it back to the earth whence It came and to which It Is returning. And we are mtghtly pleased with ourselves because we gave poor Tom 01 Sally, or father or mother, a better funeral than the Jonses or the Smiths did their sister, «»r brother, or parents. "Vanity of vanities" natth the preacher, "all is vanity." Andi» has no other such illustration as at u fu neral. Foolish and out of taste as an ex travagant funeral Is *or 'he rich, it becomes a crime among the poor. Yet it is the common custom among people in moderate circumstances to reck leas 1> run themselves, In debt whenever any member of their family dies. Entails Many Hardanipa. To provide a coffin with solid sil ver handles, to furnish tin* carriages in which p >frsßlonal funeral goer", get free rides to the cemetery. and to buy new mourning garments often means the Jeopardizing of the futute r.f all the surviving member* of the family. The already overworked man must work harder to pay off the un dertaker's bill. Yb® tired, worn mother must scrimp and deny herself even more. The lit fin (hlldten must go without the food and clothes they need. Often a talented boy or girl must be taken from school and put to work, and some aged mem ber of the household denied, the com forts that would make tlicir last days easy. Os course we *a\ that we spend more than we rati afford in burying our dead in order to .show our affec tion for them. If this is true there is no sight so cynical as that of the poor, who have never bad any luxuries in life, being li«f<l on satin couches when their old bones are past nil feeling, or ihe old hands that have never held a rose :n life being filled in death with costly hot-house blooms. If we have any money to spend to show out affection for our loved ones, surely it is belter to give it while they are alive and can enjoy it. Post mortem exhibitions of love and tender Hess are of no value except for the benefit of the neighbors. So far ns the dead are concerned, the funeral, whether gorgeous or bum ble. cannot matter; but of one thin? w» are sure, and that Is that the dead who have loved us do not wish to add to our burdens. The mother, who has sacrificed her self all her life to her c hildren, would rol sleep the sweeter in her grave for knowing thst her darlings had to go cold and hungry to pay for the forty carriages that adorned her funeral. Tmi hard-working man. who has saved up a little money, that was lit erally blood money, for his wife and baby, would have even the peace of the‘infinite broken for him if he couil know that the silly woman bad spent he r little- Inheritance for a tine funeral for bint. it l> time that people learned to long at this matter more sanely, and *o I have the courage to put,, their dead 'cvj.y dcpntl) and simply, and with u I flue regard to wliut they tun afford. There should! be* n'o costly e-ottili, tto joyptuelvo flower* no gaping crowd ui curious onlookers. Every funeral should be as plain and private as death is Itself, and a 1 man should go to hi.i last resting pla> • ace impanied only by thk two or three; i who haw loved him In life. That a family should Impoverish It- I self to provide a show funeral for uu* of it>- mt mhers is as barbaric- as for an 111«11mn widow to burn herself upon tin suttee: I ife is for the living, not for tin* dead, and our duty Is with those who are still with us. not with those who have passed beyond our reach. Mourning Garb Unhealthful. In the light of u broader knowledge we should break away from the old superstitions that fetter us to the rave. Not only should funerals be made simpler and cheaper and less ostentatious, but the custom of women shtoudiug themselves In crepe, when any cine they love dies, should lie ' abolished. 1 The heart that really grievea has no need to advertise its sorrow by flying 'h black veil, while' for those who wear mo timing simply because it Is a con vention ot iushlon, it becomes n paro dy on bereavement. Physicians are unanimous in saylug that nothing could be more unhealtd ful tot a dedicate, nervous, sorrow stricken woman than for her to shut I out the air and sunshine from herself, by mean* of heavy folds of black, to sa' nothing of tin* depressing «>ffo» t •of tin- go Ib, which keeps her sorrow » v«-r before he-r and stalls her with It•.» 1 n niembratu-e every time she looks at i her gown. Still, knowing this, hundreds of wo men annually offer up their lives on ‘the altar of wearing mourning simply tbecause they lack the courage not to dc: it. To the poor woman is added the still greater burden of expense that comes when she- has to throw away all her good colored clothes and buy a new outfli of black. Yet she dare not. follow her own good eetise and in clination. and wear her mourning : within her soul instead of on her back. Os all things 111 the world, nothing crier aloud more for reform than our • attitude toward the dead. If the wo men’s club* of this country want to really do something for humanity, let them take up a crusade against the extravagant funeral and the- eompul ! S ory w earing of mourning. For It Is the women who an* responsible for this folly, and the women alone who ! 1 an correct it. Difficult Advice. Charles (1.

Dear Miss Fairfax—! have been go ing out with u young man very often since the beginning of last summer. I only cared for him as a friend and thought he reciprocated in like man tier. After watching closely, for the past few months the marked attention and frequent visits he pays me, 1 atn con vinced that he loves me and has seri ous intentions. I am twenty-three years of age, pos sessing what i would terra, a fair ed ucation; my parents' wealth has gain ed for me a good musical education as well. This gentleman Is a few years my senior; his financial condition is not very good (a thing, whfch, caring for him as I do. 1 would overlook) but the great obstacle that confronts me is the fact that he lacks, in my estima tion, even a plain education. Now, the vital point is. how am I to act in this case? He calls occa sionally and as he does not npproach the subject I seem to have no voice In the matter; I fear I am com mitting a great wrong by leading him on. Ought I to take the initiative, or what would you suggest? TROUBLED CONSCIENCE. It is rather a delicate question to handle, but you should be able to man age* it. If you are convinced that his intentions are serious and you have no intention of marrying him. you should stop his coming to the house so often. If you c are for him it may be that you could help him to over come* his lack of education by suggest- Page Five are of handsome ma r ertals, and often® they are. painted, miniature fashlofluH 'or cameos. 1 The long coats ire much bratde&fl The new rat tail braid is the must ular.
