Mc$8^1iini?0 Ffidtam THE HOME CMdkrenn'a Gsmcr SCOTT II. Walter Scott's education as a romance-writer began while he was a child. It can be traced even to his cradle, for he was sung tQ sleep not with lullabiea but with the songs of the exiled Stuarts. As soon as he could understand stories, his grandmother and aunt poured Into his eager ears tales of border war fare and old Scottish ballads. He was a sickly child, and this resulted in a permanent lameness. But as a boy he so far overcame this handicap that he was always in the thick of schoolboy fights, and none of his comrades could climb better than he the steep slopes of the Castle-rock. As soon as he was old enough to read, he literally devoured books. He would not read love stories or tales of family life. He wanted al ways yarns of adventure or books of history. As a boy. he was so steeped in chronicles of feudal times, in histories of bygone (lays. or in accounts of Scottish life, that he was already equipped with his background for "Ivannoe" and "The Talisman." "Kenllworth" and "Quentin Purward." "The Heart of Midlothian' and "Waverley." He loved Scotland with a passion ate devotion that has seldom been ?quailed. He told Washington Irv ing that he should die if he could not see the heather at least once a year. He wrote straight out of his heart the lines: Breathes there the man with soul so dead "Who never to himself hath said: This is my own. my native land! SCOTT'S CHILDHOOD HOME. IVANHOE By SIR WALTER SCOTT Condensation by Prof. William Fenwick Harris "And I must lie here like a bed ridden monk!" exclaimed Ivanhoe, "while the game that gives me free dom or death is played out by the hands of others! Look from the win dow once again, kind maiden, but beware that you are not marked by the archers beneath. Look once more, and tell me if they yet advance to the storm." With patient courage Rebecca again took post at the lattice. "What dost thou see, Rebecca?" again demanded the wounded knight. "Nothing but the cloud of arrows flying so thick as to daze mine eyes, and to hide the bowmen who shoot them.'" "That cannot endure,* said Ivan hoe; 'if they press not right on to carry the castle by pure force of arms, the archery may avail but lit-; tli> against stone walls and bulwarks. Look for the knight of the Fetter lock. fair Rebecca, and see how he hears himself; for as the leader is, so will his followers be.'* "I see him not," said Rebecca. "Foul craven!" exclaimed Ivanhoe; ] "does he blench from the helm when the wind blows highest?" "He blenches not: He blenches not!"i said Rebecca. "I see him now; he leads a body of men close under the outer barrier of the barbican. They pull down the piles and palisades;! they hew down the barriers with axes. His high black plume floats abroad over the throne like a ravanl over the field of the slain They have made a breach In the barrier*? they ru?h In?they are thrust back! Front- | de-Boeuf heads tha defenders. I see! hla gigantic form above the pres?. I They thron* again to the breach.! and the pans is disputed hand to hand' and man to man. Qod of Jacob! It J U the meeting of two fierce tides? the conflict of two oceans moved by adverse winds!" She turned her head from the lat tice. as if unable longer to endure a sight so terrible. "Look forth again. Rebecca." said Ivanhoe, mistaking the cause of her. retiring; "the archery must in some! degree have ceased, since they are now fighting liand to hand. Tx>ok again, there is now less danger." Rebecca again looked forth, and al most immediately exclaimed: "Holy prophets of the law! Front-de-Boof i and the Black Knight fight hand to hand on the breacli, amid the roar of their followers, who watch the progress of the* strife. Heaven strike with the cause of the oppressed and the captive!" She then uttered a loud shriek and exclaimed. "He is down he is down!" "Who is down'" cried Ivanhoe; "for our dear lady's sake, tell mc which i has fallen." "The Black Knight." answered Re becca faintly; then instantly again j shouted with eagerness: "But no? I but no! The name of the Tx>rd of j j Hosts be blessed! He is on foot again. | and fights as if there were twenty j I men's strength in his single arm! His j sword is broken; he snatches an ax j from a yeoman; he pushes Front-de Boeuf with blow on blow?the giant stoops and totters like an oak under the steel of the woodman. He falls? he falls! . . . The Black Knight j approaches the postern with his huge J ax?the thundering blows which lie i deals?you may hear them above all the din and shouts of the battle. | Stones and beams are hailed down I on the bold champion; he regards them no more than if they were this tledown or feathers!" | "By Saint John of Acre." said Ivan ' hoe. raising himself joyfully on his | couch, "methought there was but one man in England that might do such a deed!" Ivanhoe was right; the Black Knight of the Fetterlock was Rich ard Plantaganet of the Lion Heart. King of England, only just returned : to his kingdom from the Holy Land. > though but few knew of his arrival 1 as yet. In his absence England had been under tha selfish rule of the! King's younger brother John, who! was planning to usurp the kingdom. | The great story teller gathers his j characters together at the tourna-j ment of Ashby.

No one thing in a packing business is particularly difficult for men trained to do it; but no one thing is enough. Thousands of other operations, pro perly performed, are necessary for the com pleted processes. And some one must fit together all these thousands of simple operations. The success with which a packing business performs its function of supplying the best possible meat products to the con sumer with the greatest possible benefit to both him and the producer depends upon the energy, brains, experience, and faith ful effort of the men trained in the business. Swift & Company turns the producer's live stock into meat for the consumer at a profit of only a fraction of a cent a pound, because it fits these operations together with the least waste, overlapping, and friction.

Morning KIshch. I once wrote a little jingle sing ing the praises of that "morning J kiss" which was printed somewhat | widely throughout the United States.

Rebecca's father, wandering Jew of vast wealth, who is constantly the prey of the ruthless Norman nobles who would wring his riches from him by torture and imprisonment; Robin Hood and his merry men of the forest glades, not forgetting the redoutable Friar Tuck. equally adept in the ways of the clerk, the, yeoman, or the roisterer. To them , are added of Norman stock the re-1 doubtable Front-de-Boeuf. Brian de Bois-Guilbert. the Prior of Jor-| vaulx. and Prince John; Athelstane. j Saxon lord, destined by Cedric for j the hand of Rowena; Gurth the, swineherd, and Wamba the jester; | and the mysterious Black Prince, who. like Ivanhoe, makes his ap pearance incognito till he shall dis cover how things have gone in his absence. Sir Walter prided himself on his mastery of what he called "the big bow-wow" style; no other of the Waverly Novels illustrates this power better "than "Ivanhoe." One stately and stirring event follows another, all holding the reader rapt in thrills, but none quite so much as the siege of the castle of Front-de-Boeuf by Rich ard and his Saxon friends. Rebecca from the lattice recounting to the wounded Ivanhoe the fortunes of the battle stands out in the memory of many a reader as Sir Walter's great est success in the grand style.
