Casimir was tired, worried, over
excited and was drinking too much
champagne. In his soberest senses he
does not understand English very well.
He certainly did not understand what
was said to him then. But he readily
promised that Tommy should bave
every opportunity of explaining him
self to the king and Calypso. The
king, ao he said, meant to travel with
the party as far as Breslau. Tommy
could talk to him In the train. He
would have several hours In which to
«ay all he wanted. Afterward he
could talk to the prtneeas, all day
long If he chose, for three whole days.
_It would be at least three days before
they could leave Brealau.
Next morning Tommy and Janet
Church went to the Friedrich Strasse
station In good time for the train to
Breslau. They found tbe king and
Calypso waiting for them. Casimir
arrived a few minutes later and saw
them off.
The princess and Janet Church trav
eled together. The king and Tommy
took their places In a smoking com
partment. Fortunately they had It
to themselves. As soon as the train
started Tommy braced himself in an
effort He wanted to get an explana
tion of what was happening, and he
was quite determined to make hia own
position clear.
It was the king who began the con
"I'm glad." he said, "that we have
this carriage to ourselves. I want to
have a little talk with you."
"And I want to talk to you," said
. oramy .
By way of showing that this talk
was going to be of a very serious kind
he stood up and set bis back against
the door of the compartment. The
king settled down In a corner and lit
a cigar.
"Are you. or are you not really a
The king turned his cigar over be
tween bis fingers thoughtfully.
"That," be said, "la rather a hard
question to answer. I certainly was
a king once. If you asked Casimir
he'd say I am king still, since I haven't

night, I don't keep np any kind of
state now. Yon needn't remain stand
ing np. Fd much rather you sat down
and were comfortable. Have a cigar."
Tommy sat down and took a cigar.

asked Tummy, desperately.
"Oh, an actress. I believe," said the
king, smiling. "Or a dancer. But It

really have mattered. You could have

"Don't aay *you,' " said Tommy.

that I am not Lord Norheya."
"Of course you're not. 1 know that
and I'm very glad of it It simplifies
things immensely, for though Lord
Norheys might have married Calyp
so In spite of Miss Temple. I'm afraid
Calypso wouldn't have married him.
Miss Temple wrote a letter to my
daughter, a most pathetic letter, beg
ging her not to take Lord Norheys
away from her. It affected Calypso
greatly. There was something In It
about a 'one ewe lamb,' and Calypso,
having lots of flocks and herds. It
seemed to me rather an odd descrip
tion of a young man. The patriarch
used to quote that parable to me, but
then It always was—well, a 'ewe'
lamb. That stuff never made roach
Impression on me, but Calypso wept
when she read it. She said that if
you'd promised to marry Miss Tem
"But I haven't."
"So I told Calypso. I told her that
she must not mix you up with Lord
Norheys. She said that even If yon
hadn't actually promised to marry her,
you had certainly stolen sway her
young affections."
*T haven't," said Tommy.
"Of course not Their affections
are seldom as young as all that. At
least, that's my experience. Those
ewe lambs are generally pretty well
able to fake care of themselves. Bat,
of course, it would have been no good
saying that to Calypso, or for the
matter of that to the patriarch. The
patriarch is a very simple-minded oM
man. He believes In young affections
and broken hearts and all that sort of
thing. However, fortunately. * we
haven't got to argue with him sod
Calypso along those lines. All we've
got to do Is make them believe that
you are not I-ord Norheys. Once they
believe Jthat, all our difficulties van
ish. The marriage can go on."
"Do yon mean to say," said Tom
my, "that you're still willing to al
low me to marry your daughter?"
"Of course I am," said the klug. T

Temple business in the least serious

"Just what I Raid to Calypso, and
Just what you will have to my to tbe
patriarch. Then the only obstacle to
tbe marriage vanishes." —
"No. It doesn't," said Tommy,
least, that one may. But there's an
other obstacle, a much worse one."
"If there's another.'' said the king.

•There were a good many reasons,**
said the king. "I couldn't go back to

that I want to even if they would.
I'm earning much more In the Mas

some sort of provision for her. poor

T didn't choose you. The fact Is
that the Lystrtans knew very well that
they couldn't get s king at all unless
be was an Englishman. The Entente

a king, all of them. There's the pa

Two "New Breeds
1 T„ x .«„i.! 1 .-.J

Believed That "Türken" Is
Nothing Else Than Tran
sylvania Naked-Neck.
Tnere Is no lore like that of the
cross of widely separated species of
That nature
frowns on such crosses Is evidenced by j
the failure of repeated and persistent
experiments under favorable condi
tions. Where progeny has followed vio
lent 'Tossings, It Is sterile as a rule.
The Department of Agriculture has Is
sued a press release In this connection,
which is as follows:
''The L'nlted States Department of
Agriculture has received many re
quests from all parts of the country
for information concerning two so
called new "breeds" of poultry, the
Türken* and the 'Kiwi.' The depart
ment has been aware of advertisements
concerning these new and novel
'breeds,* for which some rather re
markable claims have been made. The
advertisements and literature describ
ing the origin and qualities of these
'breeds' seem to have aronsgd much
Interest on the part of the public, since
tbe department has recelvd several
urgent requests for an explanation re
garding the reliability of the claims
«als — and— birds.
How "Turkon" Was Produced.
"The statements to the advertise
ments and literature claim that tbe
'turken' was originally produced by
crossing a male turkey with a female
chicken, and that the 'Kiwi' was pro
duced by crossing a mala ostrich with a
female chicken.
"Successful crosses have been made
between the pheasant and the chicken,
and to practically every case the prog
eny has been of the male sex and
sterile. Also, successful crosses have
been made between the guinea and the
chicken, and here again tbe sex of the
progeny has almost Invariably been
mo*« and the hybrida have been sterile.
Both of these crosses have been made
with great difficulty and. ao far as
known, no cross giving any progeny
has ever been reported between the
turkey and th# chicken. Furthermore,
it is highly Improbable that the prog
eny, If any bave ever been secured,
would breed at all. and certainly not
readily. In such wide or violent,
crosses the progeny is always sterile,
and the claim for the 'Türken.' which
is reported to be th* hybrid progeny
of a cross between the turkey and the
chicken, is In all probability not found
ed on fact
Is Nsked-Neeksd Chicken.
•'One other point roust be made con
cerning the so-called Türken.' Tbe
Illustrations accompanying the adver
tisements and literature are in all prob
ability photographs of the Transyl
vania Naked-neck chickens Accord
ing to the best Information obtainable
this odd-looklng breed originated to
West India, and the characteristic
naked neck hos bred true for msoy
years, it Is a distinct character of the
breed. The department believes that
tbe to-called Türken' la nothing else
than tbe Transylvania Naked-neck
chirk en, which apparently possesses
no qualities superior to the more Im
portant standard breeds and varieties,
and has not been shown to be psr- L
dcolsrty well adapted to conditions in
many parts of our country.
"As far as the reported cross giv
ing rise to the 'Kiwi* Is concerned, there
Is noch lets evidence to support such
a cross than to tbe case of the
Türken.* This 1« too violent a cross
to produce any results whatever.
"The burden of proof that such
crosses as those giving rise to the
Turken* and the Kiwi* must remain
with the sponsors of such novel produc
tions. In tbe meantime, the Interests
of the public should be safeguarded."
Feed to Maintain Cows
of Different Weights
~ Extensive detailed experiments have
been made to determine the average
«mount of protein and other food nu
triments needed to maintain rows ot
different weights. Also, the different
feeds have been tested to determine
tbe average amounts of digestible pro
tein and other nutriments. This data
has been arranged In table form and
may be found in various books, ex
periment station bulletins, etc., but Is
too extensive to reproduce here. These
experiments also show tbe amounts of
food nutriments required to produce
dUTerant amounts of milk. By taking
tbe data from these tables, showing
bow much Is required, tbe balanced
ration Is worked oat by grouping to
gether the necessary amounts of the
different feeds to give the correct total
sad proportion of nutriments. Rations
aa worked eut by this process can only
serve as a guide because of the great
variation la individual cows, bat they
are very valuable In actually obtain
