"Children turn its pages, young people read it. grown men un derstand it. old folks praise it." "DON QUIXOTE" By MIGUEL DE CERVANTES. (Condensation by Nathan Haskell Dole.) In the sixteenth ccntury roman ces of chivalry, written in absurd. ? xagg* rated style, were extremely popular in Spain. A dicrnifl^d gentleman by the name of Qu.Mula. who lived be tween Aragon and Castile, went craxy over these foolish books. which he spent all his substance in buying. His brain was stuffed with enchantments, quarrels, battles, challenges, wounds, ma^ic salves, complaints, amours, torments, RianU. castles, captured maidtns. gallant rescues. and all sorts of impossible deeds of daring, which seemed to him as true as the most authentic history. Every inn-keeper was a magnate; every mule driver a cava lier. He decided that for his own honor and for the service of the world, he mus: turn knight eriant and Jaunt through the world. redressing wrongs, rescuing captured princess es. and at last winning the imperial sceptre of Trapixonda. He changed his name to Don Quix* ote de la Mancha, got himself dub bed knight by a rascally publican. wh'?e inn he thought w-as a cast!?: with four turrets crowned with pin nacles of glistening silver. In or der to carry a full purse h<- sold one of his houses, mortgaged another and borrowed a goodly sum from a friend. When his practical house keeper and his pretty niece, to gether wth his neighbors, the bar ber and the curate, thought to cure him by burning his books, he was persuaded that his library had been carried away by a necromancer, and berame crazier than ever. He scoured up a rusty suit of mail which had belonged to one of his ancestors, mended the broken hel met with a pasteboard vizor, patch ed with thin iron plates, and thus accouttred set forth on his old hack Kocinante, whose ribs stuck out like the skeleton of a ship, accompanied by a rustic named Sancho Panza. persuaded into nervine as his squire. Their departure was a brave spec tacle: the tall, cadaverous lantern jawed knight, mounted on hia bony nag. wielding his long lance and carrying his sword, his eyes gleam ing with enthusiasm and dreaming of his beautiful mistress, whom he called Dulcinea del Toboso; the short, squat, paunch-bellied, long haunched servant with a canvas-* wallet and a leathern bottle, mount ed on the diminutive ass. Dapple. On the plains of Montiel stood a score of big wind-mills. Don Quix ote took them for outrageous giants and prepared to do battle against them, and despite Sancho's protests that their hug'' arms were only \ anes. he plunged the rowels into Ro< Inante's thin flanki: and with couched lance, clashed off to the en counter. The wind blew violently and the knight and his steed were whirled away into the field, where they lay motionless and as if dead; hrs lance vas smashed to flinders. Sancho hastened to the aid of his master and found him unable to stir; but he was soon ready to go on again. Their next adventure was with two monks, -iding on mules as big as dromedaries, in company with a coach in which sat a lady escorted by men on horseback. Don Quixota imagined that adventures had cap tured a princess and in the haugh tiest terms bade them release her. Then without further parley he drove against the monks, one or whom ran away while the other fell off his mule. Sancho nimbly slipped from his ass and began to strip the luckless m-*n; while he was engaged in this legitimate appropriation of tbe spoils of battle, two muleteers of the train overset him. tore out his beard by handfuls. mauled him and left him senseless. Don Quixote en gaged in a terrific combat with one of the lady's guard who sliced off half of his helmet and one of his ears. Undaunted the knight press ed the combat to victory, but just as he was about to give the finish ing stroke, the frightened lady beg ged him to desist an^ he complied on condition that the defeated op ponent should go and present him self before the peerless Dulcinea. who was in reality a buxom woman known through all Mancha for her skill in salting pork and who had never deigned to look at her anourous neighbor. A few days later, bruised and bat tered in untoward adventures, they came upon a floek of sheep which Don Quixote conceived to be a pro- j difc-ious army composed of an In finite number of nation* led by mighty kings. He spurred like a ^ Uumderbolt from the top of a hill- | ock shouting his battle-challenge.; DUtting the hapless sheep to flight and trampling both the living and the slain. Impatient to meet the commander of the enemy, he shout ed "Where, where art thou, haughty !

Iutely correct as to the autumn mode for hats. Pokes are sure of first place in the race of fashion. This one is of taffeta embroid ered in very woolly wool flowers. The crown is round and the brim wide and flaring. Note the new lace Bertha collar that has just "comc back!" Dame Fashion seems to be forming her own League of Nations in prepa ration for a Fall campaign of peace and international good will in milli nery?for the hats Miss America is to wear this Autumn have European in spiration. Mrrrle England. First in favor?by long odds?is the old-new fashioned poke-bonnet type, which originated in Merrie England some centuries back, and has recur red as a favorite model on an aver age of every five years since. This season the poke bonnet is a large hat. They are made of taffeta or velvet, with graceful, rounded crowns and downward and outward flare of brim, upturned in front to show demure or saucy faces. French Trleomes. Second in favor are the French Tri cornes such as designed by Lady Jane Chamberlain. These three-cornered affairs of silk or velvet, lending them selves gracefully to sweeping plume, stiff wing, or flowers, are so univer sally becoming as to be sure of favor. , Metallic flowers are especially good as trimming this season. Spnnlih Manntllla. In the whole realm of dress there ! is a distinct Spanish influence this uu- , tumn which is bringing into vogue the brilliant colorings and embroid- j erles beloved of th?- folk of Sunny Spain. It is shown on rich, even * crude embroideries on net and CJeor- , gette crepe for crowns. In millinery this Spanish influence is shown in the popularity of the beautiful lace man tilla. for evening wear. At the thea ters, and even in restaurants the lovely lace drapery over the hair is In great evidence. With evening frocks the mantilla is the fashiona ble thing. Knelii<h Touch. English walking hats. alway? popular and particularly smart this autumn, have long ostrich plumes, as in one of Lady Jane Chamber lain's confections, in peacock colors, curving up over one side to droop down the bark. Another of Lady Jane's hats that is attracting atten tion is a poke-toque. It is a toque but then it has a narrow poke shaped brim and finally a long sweeping brush of glyceri-nized os trich feathers striking out from the back. Strangely enough. green is a favored color for hats. There have appeared, in fact, almost as many green as black hats and more green than blue. Van Kaalte's new veile include green ones which are de signed to go with any hat and are really extremely fetching though you would hardly think It. Incidentally veils, to the Paris edict, will be of almost equal im portant.; with the hat. The millin ers always include a veil with the hat. except it is for evening wear and there is a new evening veil, a cobwebby thing that is worn for its becomingness to the complex ion. STRONGEST LITTLE BOY SAYS HIS MAW PUTS HIM TO BED AS SOON AS IT GETS DARK TOLD BY CHARLIE WHITE In the evening alter daddy lias had his dinner he takes mc down stairs to work on the pulleys. Daddy made me a little pair of pulleys just like my big brother's. Only the weights arc not so heavy. I do all the stunts my brother does while he is working on his pulley. I pull the handles to my chest ten times. Then I turn my back to the wall and bend over as far as I can. I can do this twenty times. But my daddy docs not let me work very hard after dinner. Af ter I have worked with the pulleys a little while he makes me go out into the yard and play for a while and as soon as it gets dark my mom puts mc to bed. Daddy says that little boys and girls would never have the stom achache or any pains if their dad dies made them do the stunts that I do and sent them to bed early. (To Be Continued Tomorrow.)

Venus. Saturn and Uranus are all in malefic aspect. The last days of summer are likely to be a time when the public mind is assailed with rumors and gossip that are meant to spread f*ar. For this reason thought should be positive and faith strong. The influence of Saturn and Uranus is likely to encourage pes simism and despondency. Warning is given that poisonous words may have a dangerous effect that will be felt in industry as well as politics. Neptune is in a place held to make deception of oneself as well as one's fellows easy. The sway is most un favorable to morals. Women should be especially cauti ous in all business dealings while this configuration prevails. There is a menacing sign for travel by sea. Storms are presaged and there may be a disaster. The planetary influences that at the beginning of the years were read as foreshadowing the death of many famous and distinguished per sons have not passed. A French celebrity will end his carter before the first frost, it is prophesied. According to ancient lore this should be an auspicious day for men who enter new positions, or under take new employment. Warning is given that many sin ister signs are revealed In the as pects for September. France and Italy appear to be particularly men aced by troubles. New rumors of war are prognosticated. Volcanic eruptions are to be more numerous than at any time in re cent years and these are attributed to conditions observed at the total eclipse of the Sun. May 29. Persons whose birthdate it i3 should guard against deception. The year will be a busy one. Changes will not be lucky. Children born on this day are likely to be proud and high spirited.!

"Take off your bonnet and have a cup of tea!" invited Nurse Jane. "Thank you. I will!" said Aunt Lettie. "It's too bad I'm so nervous." Uncle Wiggily and Nurse Jane thought so. too, but it could not be helped. Aunt Lettie stayed all that day. and in the middle of the night' Uncle Wiggily was awakened by Nurse Jane, who said: "Aunt Lettie is so nervous she can't sleep. She wants a cup of tea, but there isn't a drop of milk in the bungalow." The bunny dressed and went out in the dark with a lightning-bug for | a lantern. I "Oh, where will I find a cow to i give me milk for poor, nervous Au>* j Lettie's tea?" said Uncle Wiggily, as I he looked all around. Not a cow could he see. but pretty soon a voice said; "I can gtve you milk. I am the milkweed plant. "My white juice will make good milk for Aunt Lettie's tea." The milk squeezed from the milk weed plant made the goat lady's tea all right so she could drink it, and she wasn't nervous any more. "But where did you find milk at night?" she asked the bunny. "I got it from a green cow," an swered Mr. Longears, sleepy like. "How funny! I never saw a green cow" laughed Aunt Lettie. But we know there are some, don't we? And if the rubber ball doesn't bounce on the sidewalk and get in the way of the roller skate when it's tagging the skipping rope. I'll tell you next about Uncle Wiggily and the Zoop. Perhaps it's the prevalent "Spani>h influence" in fashion, and perhaps it's the irresistible charm of Miss Constance Binney, who wears this lovely black lace mantilla in "39 Kast" which has swung the mantilla into high favor as evening head dress.
