"Then send for the president of
the bank and the judge," he directed.
"Why " began Adrian wonder
ingly. "Do as I say."
"Gentlemen," spoke Ben, as the
persons in question were summoned,
"I have a confession, to make. I did
not rob the bank but I directed the
"Ha!" glared the banker.
"Yes. I did it to put on his feet my
best friend, Mr. Wilton. I did it to
force an acknowledgement here of
his great ability. I got an old pal to
do the job, but there's the money,
just as it left the bank," and he hand

The latter was so delighted at get
ting back his lost money that he
laughed gleefully as a child.
"A bright joke!" he cried.
"You must be a loyal friend to Mr.
Wilton to take the risk you did," re
marked the judge gravely. "It was
worth it, though, I guess, for he's a
made man in this community."
And then Adrian hurried to Nellie

STUFFED DATES NOT SO HARD
The process of making stuffed dates
is very simple. First remove the
stones and then put in the filling. The
work comes in making the latter. An
agate saucepan should be used to
cook the filling in. Mix a cup of gran
ulated sugar, about a quarter of a
pint of cold water and half a salt
spoon of cream of tartar and stir long
enough to dissolve the sugar. Then
boil it until a tiny bit dropped into
cold water forms a soft ball. Take
off the stove and skim it.
Pour the syrup, now formed, into
a bowl and when it is cool enough so
that the fingers leave a soft dent in it
when touched stir it all to a smooth,
white paste with a wooden spoon. Use
the hands when it is too stiff to move
with the spoon.
This filling keeps for weeks. When
ever you wish to use it set the bowl
in which it is kept in hot water until
the mixture becomes soft.
