CHAPTER XI—Con tinned

"I accept It," he said, "In recogni
tion. not of the services 1 have ren
dered, but of tboae 1 hope to render
to your native land. I think you un
derstand me. Count Casimir."
Casimir did, or thought he did. No
doubt Von Steinveldt was of opinion
that he would render valuable serv
ices to Lystria by marrying the prin
cess and ascending the throne.
*T am also charged by his majesty,"
he said, "to inform your exceilenz that

long wished to see the Princess Calyp
so dunce. She is still dancing there,
I hope."
"She danced last night."
"And tonight? No. tonight I am
engaged, and the night after. Will
the Princess Calypso be dancing next
Monday nightT*
Casimir sincerely hoped not. if hla
plans worked out as be wished, the
princess would be well on her way to
Lystria on Monday night Bat he did
not want to say that to Von Stein

from the subject of the Princess
"His majesty," he said, "hopes to
engage an English dancer for the Mas
cotte. She is. I am told, well known
and greatly appreciated in London. If
your exceilenz will come and see her
when she arrives you will no doubt
be pleased. Her name Is Temple. Vio
la Temple."
"Ach." said Von Steinveldt. "1 think
I know the name. Let roe see. I hear
a little of the gossip of the London
clubs, though I should no longer be
admitted as a member of one of them,
la not that the lady to whom young
Lord Norheys Is so deeply attached?"
Casimir felt lhat the time bad come
for getting at the real object of his
mission. This chance mention of Nor
heys' name gave him bis opportunity.
"Speaking of Lord Norheys," he
said, "reminds me that his majesty
asked me to say to you—"
Von Steinveldt Interrupted him.
But I know it already. I had a visit
from him this morning. A very
charming young man. Perhaps he is

Casimir, who had been uneasy all
through the Interview, became actu
ally uncomfortable. He did not un
derstand what Von Steinveldt meant.
"Miss Temple," he said, "has not
yet arrived in Berlin."
"Indeed. Then perhaps there is no
truth in the rumor that he intends to
marry Miss Temple. Indeed. I have
beard it whispered that another and
much more desirable marriage has
been planned for that fortunate young
man. The Princess Calypso U, I un
derstand, a very beautiful young
Casimir was not surprised to find
that Von Steinveldt knew all about
the scheme for the marriage of Calyp
so and Norheys, but be was startled,
puzzled and frightened to bear the
matter spoken of In this way.
"lyord Norheys la a rich man, 1 be
lieve," Von Steinveldt went on. "He
will no doubt make an excellent king
of Lystria, a post which could hardly
be accepted by a man without private
means. And If your Ml fields are de
— veloped, he will see to It that England
obtains control of them. Well, Eng
land gets everything nowadays. To
the victors the spoils. It is enough
for us poor Germans that we are al
lowed to live. Please tell the king
that I do not grudge Lord Norheys his
good fortune. I found him a most at
tractive young man. I have seldom
enjoyed a chat more than the one I
bad with him this morning." 4
Casimir felt perfectly certain that
Von Steinveldt would grudge the prin
cess nnd the throne of Lystria to Lord
Norheys or any one else except blm
sMf. He was equally sure that no
German would be content to see Eng
land in control of the Lystrtsn oil. He
felt that he was being played with,
laughed at, and that some very dis
agreeable surprise awaited him. He
began to be angry and to lose con
fidence in himself.

When he bad finished speaking he
passed through it and slammed It vio

smiled. He probably chuckled when
Casimir left him. The mistake about
Tommy's Identity was sure to be dis
covered sooner or later. When It wee

Casimir spent a harassed and try

He was convinced, and the king

enough—that the German would have

Soy-Bean Dealer Is
in Jail for Fraud

Instead of Otootan.
<Pr»p«r»d hr um unit*« atatw D*p*r«m«at

Becaoae ne thought that farmers
don't know beans." a certain exploiter
of soy-bean seed Is now revising hts
opinion while serving a term in the
penitentiary for violation of the postal
fraud law. Some farmers "do know
beans" and when some of these better
posted soy-bean growers recently re
ceived shipments of Tarheel Black In
stead of the Otootan which they bad
ordered, the matter was called to the
attention of the Post Office department
and the United States Department of
Investigation by the poet office offi
cials disclosed the fact that this lone
operator was advertising the hlgber
priced variety, Otootan, for sals at
about one-half the regular market
value and doing a tremendous busi
plan called for no shipment
of beans of any variety until the cus
tomer became Insistent, and then he
substituted the cheeper Tarheel Black.
He was brought to trial and convicted
of fraudulent use of the mails. Be
cause of the high prices of the Otootan
and Laredo varieties there has been
considerable substitution of the cheap
er black varieties, such as Wilson,
Rbony or Black Beauty, Peking and
Tarheel Black.
The moral In this little story Is not
only to know soy-bean varieties, but
to buy soy-bean seed from reliable and
established seedsmen or growers, and
beware o i "cheap seed." There are
others still at large ready to exploit
the farmer's inability to Identify the
numerous varieties of soy beans. The
prospective purchaser of seed should
obtain sample« before buying, and If
not sore of the Identity of the seed
should consult the county agent or the
state agricultural college. Be sort
you are getting the variety desired
and not some cheap substitute.
Orchard Fertility la
Discussed in Bulletin
"Fertility In the Apple Orchard" is
tite title of a new bulletin Just Issued
by the agricultural experiment station
at the Pennsylvania State college. It
Is prepared by Profs. R. D. Anthony
and J. H. Waring, and is the result of
many years' experimenting with apple
trees in both the cultivated and sod
type of orchard. Copies of the bulle
tin may he secured free by writing to
the Agricultural Publications Offices
at State College, Pa.
On moat Pennsylvania farms the
apple orchard la of the sod type, lhat
la, gragf or clover (a allowed to grow
about the trees. It Is pointed out In
the bulletin that general rales seem to
have more exceptions In fruit growing
than in most branches of agriculture.
With*this In mind, the Stole college
pomologlsts summarize fertility prac
tices In tha sod orchard aa follows:
"In the mature sod orchard from
five to ten pounds of nitrate of soda
or Its equivalent should be broadcast
over the square In which the tree
stands, two or three weeks before the
blossom buds break. If a leguminous
sod Is used, cut this application In
half. If the sod shows any response
to add phosphate, use it regularly,
one or two pounds with each pound of
nitrate. Build op thin spots by the use
of manure.
"Cut the grass a little earlier than It
would be cut for bay, before seeds
have matured, and let it lie In the
swath. De not pasture the grass. In
dry seasons advance the tin« of cut
ting to decrease the water lose. If
mice are present throw the dirt away
from the trunks and fill the boles and
mound up around the trunks with coal
nahes. Also, poison ths mice. Keep
the leaves healthy by spraying and
the trees property opened by pruning."
