That young woman is the daughter of Stan ley Hargreave, the millionaire who was lost at sea. And it won’t be long before ahe puts her finger in .a pie of four or five millions. If you want any rides, you’ll have to talk it over with the boas. He may or may not take any more rides. You’d probably have to ride in the afternoon, any how, as every nag is out in the morn ing.** "Where’s the most popular road?’’ •’Toward the park; but Miss Har greave always goes along the river aide road. She doesn’t like strangers about.” "0, I tee. Well, I’ll drop in this af ternoon and see your master. They say that riding Is good for a torpid liver. Have a cigar?” "Thanks.** The groom proceeded into the sta bles and the affable stranger took himself off. A free rein; they could work it to suit themselves. There wasn’t the least obstacle in the way. On the face of it. It appeared to be the sim plest Job they had yet undertaken. To get rid of the riding master in some natural way after he and the France has taken these precautions at Toul, Verdun, Chalons Sur Marne, Bar Le Due, and Epinal. The French government has established factoriefl for the production of hydrogen for dirigibles at Paris, Lille, Langres, etc. Huge aeroplane and dirigible sheds have been constructed at Rhelms, lssy- Les-Moullneaux Pau and Molsson. The French aerial budget for 1911 was $1,240,000. For 1913 It was esti mated at $8,500,000. In Germany, these preparations have been even more actively engaged In. Four huge military Zeppelins with full crews are kept almost constantly in the air, training themselves In the art of defense, experimenting In mili tary tactics high up in the clonds. The naval Z is stationed on the North Sea at Wllhelmshaven, Ger many's chief point of defense In case of conflict with England. The Zlis at Koenlgsberg on the Russian frontier. Last year Germany added nine units to Its fleet of air fighters. This num ber hi being doubled at the present time. Germany has In her army corps, 400 diploma pilots who are all highly skilled aviators and soldiers. Ger many has spent nearly $8,000,000 with in the last year on her aerial fleet Ifrl’lcfc baa added chiefly to the strength of her dirigibles. T. R. Mac Mechen, noted expert and writer on aviation, said recently In Everybody’s Magazine: Borne morning England, perhaps, or France, or Germany, or tome other European power, will open its eyes to And its capital and the rear of Its armies menaced by hostile air fleets. It will then be called destructive war with humiliating defeat almost certain. Its only hope of success will rest in Its ability to summon, without loss of Itlme, an air navy of Its own sufficient ly strong to destroy the enemy’s or drive It across the border."

"Susan," said Florence as she came into breakfast after her exhilarating ride, "did you hear pistol shots last night?” "I heard some noise, but I was so sleepy 1 didn’t try to figure out what It was.” "Did you, Jones?” "Y’es, Miss Florence. The shots came from the street. A policeman came running up later and said he saw two auioinobiles on the run. But evidently there wasn’t anybody hurt. Dne has to be careful at night now a days. There are pretty had men abroad. Did you enjoy the ride?” "Very much. But there were spots of blood on the walk near the cor ner." "Blood?" Jones caught the back of a chair to steady himself. "Yes. So someone was hurt. O, let’s leave this place!” impulsively. “Let us go back to Miss Farlow’s. You could find a place in the village. Jones. But if I stay here much longer in this state of unrest I shall lose faith in everything and everybody. Whoever my father's enemies are. they do not lack persistence. They have made two attempts against my liberty, and sooner or later they will succeed. I keep looking over my shoulder alt the time. If 1 hear a noise I Jump.” “Miss Florence, if I thought it wise, you should be packed off to Miss FYir low’s this minute. But not an hour of the day or night passes without this house being watched. I seldom see anybody about. I can only sense the presence of a watcher. At Miss F'arlow’s you would be far more like a prisoner than here. I could not ac company you. I am forbidden to de sert this house.” “My father’s orders?” Jones signified neither one way nor the other. He merely gazed stolidly at the rug. ‘‘That blood!” She sprang from her chair, horrified. "It was his! He was here last night, and they shot him! O!” "There, there, Miss Florence. The man was only slightly wounded. He's where they never will look for him ” Then Jones continued, as with an ef fort: “Trust me, Miss Florence. It would not pay to run away. The whole affair would be repeated else where. We might go to the other end of the world, but it would not serve us in the least. It is not a question of escape, but of who shall vanquish the other. There Is nothing to do but remain here and fight, fight, fight. We have put four of them in the Tombs, to say nothing of the gunmen. That la what we must and them in a safe place, one by one, till we reach the master. Then only may we breathe in safety. But if they watch, ao do we. There la never a moment when help la not within reach, no matter where you go. So long as you do not deceive me, no real harm shall befall you. Don’t cry. Be your father’s daughter, as I am hts ser vant.** . “I am very unhappy!” And Flor ence threw her arms around Susan and laid her head upon her friend’s shoulder. “Poor child!” Busan, however, rec ognised the wisdom of Jones’ state made of bomb-dropping from on high —gunners on the biggest battleships in the world are ho more skillful In their work and In their precision than are the men w'ho have studied the de struction of property and human life from a swaying airship. From the Krupp factory there is now being turned out a terrible fire bomb that sheds a bright light, not only during Its flight, but after it strikes the earth. It Immediately Ignites any Inflammable material with which it comes in contact —its explo sion is terrific. A searchlight has been perfected which will suspend 600 feet below the airship so that the gunners are aided in directing their Are where It will do the most damage Another Krupp bomb explodes high up in the air and destroys airships sailing below the ship from which it is thrown overboard. It also emits dense smoke which gives the aeroplane time to escape from return lire. 2410 Airships Preparing For War in the Air Two thousand, one hundred and ten war aeroplanes and dirigibles owned by the six gFeat powers of Europe are being made ready to go to war. With the exception of Ger many and England, there would be little chance for sea fighting. Here Is how the airships are divided: France % 750 Germany 500 Russia 380 Italy 200 Austria 160 England 130 Total 2,110 uunts. They were safest here The morning rides continued. To the girl, who loved the open, It was glorious run. Those mad gallop along the roads, the smell of earth and sea, the tingle in the blood, were the second best moments of her day. The first? She Invariably blushed when she considered what these firs*, best moments were. He was a brave young man. good to look at, witty, and always cheerful. Why shouldn't she like him? Even Jones liked him —Jones, who didn’t seem to like any body. It did not matter whether It was wise or not; a worldly point of view was farthest from her youthful thoughts. It was her own affair; her own heart. Five days later, as she and the rid ing master were cantering along the road, enjoying every bit of it. they heard the beat of hoofs behind. They drew up and turned. A rider was ap proaching them at a run. It was the head groom. The man stopped his horse in a cloud of dust. "Sir, the stables are on fire!” •Fire?” All the riding master’s savings were invested in the stables. The fact that he had solemnly promised never to leave Florence alone and that he had accepted a generous bonus slipped from his mind at the thought of fire, a terrible word to any horseman. He wheeled and started off at breakneck speed, his head groom clattering behind him. Florence naturally wondered which of two courses to pursue; follow them, or continue the ride and save at least one horse from the terror of seeing flames. Bhe chose the latter. But she did not ride with the earlier zest. She felt depressed. She loved horses, and the thought of them dy ing in those wooden stables was hor rifying. The fire, however, proved to be in cipient. But it was plainly Incen diary. Soma one had set fire to it with a purpose in view. Norton rec ognized this fact almost as soon as the firemen. He had come this morn ing with the idea of surprising Flor ence. He was going out on horseback to join her. His spine grew suddenly cold. A trap! She had been left alone on the road! Hie ran over to the garage, secured a car, and went humming out toward the river road. A trap, and only by the sheerest iuck had he turned up in time. Meantime Florence was walking her mount slowly. For once the scen ery passed unobserved. She was deeply engrossed with her thoughts, some of which were happy and some of which were sad. If only her father could be with her she would be the happiest girl alive. She was brought out of her revery by the sight of a man staggering along the road ahead of her. Finally he plunged upon his face in the road. Like the tender-hearted girl ahe was. she stopped, dismounted, and ran to the fallen man to give him aid. She suddenly found her wrists clasped in two hands like iron. The man rose to his feet, smiling evilly. She strug gled wildly but futilely. "Better be sensible,” he said. "I am stronger than you are. And I don’t wish to hurt you. Walk on ahead of me. It will be utterly useless to scream or cnulut. You can see for yourself that.we are in a deserted part of the road. If you will promise to act sensibly I shan’t lay a hand on you. Do you see that hut yonder, near the fork in the road? We*U atop there. Now, march!” She dropped her handkerchief. lat er her bracelet, and finally her crop, in hope that these slight clews might bring her help. Bhe knew that Jones would hear of the fire, and, finding that she had not returned with the riding master would immediately start out in pursuit. She was begin ning to grow very fond of Jones, who never spoke unless spoken to, who In recent aeroplane maneuvers in Germany, a torch was attached to a long wire and hung from a moving aeroplane. This fire-brand, dragged through towns and over sun-baked fields starts conflagration which burns up entire communities and subjects the invaders to but small danger. Again, the issue of a battle may rest on the valuable information which aeroplanes are able to bring to head quarters. In a few hours a fleet of air-dread noughts can sail to the center of France or England from the Interior of Germany. More damage can be done with the German aerial fleet In six hours than with the German navy In stx weeks, according to experts. .-■*/ ' • i jtj-.... i I■> *ft'>^ ; - ■?V ■% yv/v-O,:;-,; J.% **>rs-v J •V %; ■ !•'. . ■'■■ i^4.- ,J; ' • ' 18-**: - i^v'-r^v'SL,- >*;/,/ ;£<&.■ */>& SU& \ *\ 1: /-* *■* ’i , k * ?■%< S*» •.« BL.

She wondered If her captor heard it. He did, but his ear 9 tricked him Into believing that It came from ar other direction. Eventually they arrived at the hut, and Florence was forced to enter. The man locked the door and waited outside for the auto mobile which he was expecting. He was rather dumfoqgded when he saw that It was coming from the city, not going toward it. It was Norton. The riderless horse told him enough; the handkerchief Mid bracelet and crop led him straight for the hut. The man before the hut realized by this time that he had made a mistake. He attempted to re-enter the hut and prepare to defend it till hia compan ions hove in sight. But Florence, recognizing Norton, held the door with all her strength. The man anarh od and turned upon Norton, only to leceive a smashing blow on the jaw. Norton flung open the door. “Into the car, Florence! "There's another car coming up the road.

PAUL, Minn., Aug. 6/—Mors than 700 farmers’ clubs have been or ganised In Minnesota during the past yaar, according to A. D. Wilson, di rector of agricultural extension at th« university farm. There are 880 farm ers’ clubs In the state representing all but two of the 86 counties. * The move to establish clubs among the farmers Is one of the greatest steps toward prosperity that the 1 state has ever taken in the opinion of, economists at the College of Agricul ture. A good, active fanners’ club does for a rural community what an active commercial club does for a village or city, they declare. It tends to secure the united influence of a community to develop and bring about any desired Improvement and to oppose anything that Is not for Its best Interests. I "There seems to be only two solu tions,” says Prof. Wilson, “to the problem of putting the farmer on an equal basis with those with whom he has business outside of the farm. One : is to increase the slse of the average farm. The other is to unite the in : teres t* of several fanners owning farms of ordinary size for the pur pose of outside contact in both buying and selling. “The latter plan la decidedly prefer able, because It does not Involve the landlord and tenant or landlord and hired help system, and makes possible the maintenance of the family-sized ■ farm, which is one of our most lm-. portant American institutions. “I believe in the farmers’ club be cause it develops people. It tends to bring nut the best there Is in a com i munity and to get people ready to act concertedly for their own betterment. It is' an ever-ready means of taking ,up and studying Independently any 1 matter of Importance, to the commu nity. It makes the work of the un scrupulous promoter unprofitable and aids any movement that ts for the real interests of the community. A farm ers’ club is needed in every comma- t nity.” Prof. Wilson points out that the ad vantages to be gained through a farm ers’ club are three-fold. They are so cial. educational and financial. Chief among these are the financial advan ! tages of co-operative buying and sell ; lng of farm products and things to be irsed on the farm. Co-operation In marketing secures not only a better price for the average farmer, but tends to make the products of any one com munity uniform in quality The cooperative Idea is carried to the education features. Communities threatened with fruit blights, potato diseases, animal diseases and Insect rests can get together at the farmers’ club and discuss ways and means of combating the evil. Prof. Wilson alms to have 1,000 farmers’ clubs In the state by the end of this year. Many varieties of Australian wood are of such singular beauty and are so admirably fitted for cabinet mak ing that they are in great demand for that purpose. westerly on a line parallel to the southerly line of Mack avenue to a point in the center line ot, Field ave nue, thence northerly to the place of beginning, excepting lot 40.
