Mrs. White has created a new heroine in this story and has placed her in the same surroundings the mysterious, lawless squat ters of Cayuga lake. Characters, plot and variety of incident, make it a narrative of compelling charm. Selected on account of its great qualities of interest and appeal to all readers, as a serial for these columns.

"I hear people say hens don't pay, but surely they cr.n not have kept accounts and records. I have had a small flock of 24 hens in my city back yard since the Government urged us to get into the game three years ago. The following are the results for the year ending October 31, 1920: My entire feed bill, and the grain was bought at retail,' amounted to $66.74. "My entire egg production was 3,603 eggs, or 300 1-3 dozens, the retail market value of which, taken from month to month, woh $189.30.' Deducting $66.74 from the above 1189.30 leaves me a net profit of $122.56 for my work and investment, j "We used all the newly laid egss 1 we wished for our own table and the balance went to our neighbors, By Charles Sughroe \XVuern Nev*f«|*r Union Lighten the Household Labor The oM hard round of cleaning will lose tnueti of its™ difficulty when you use the OHIO-TUEC Electric Cleaner Its stronj. suction draws dust and dirt out of all those troublesome little corners.

"Keeping the hens and surround ings scrupulously clean and feeding a balanced ration at regular intervals is the secret of success with a back, yard flock." The Inventor of the Typewriter. About 850,000 typewriters will be manufactured this year. That means approximately 2,300 a day, or nearly 100 an hour for every hour night and day the year round. Of the world's output the United States produces nearly 80 per cent.

Do you? Of course not. It was Christopher Latham Sholes who devised it in 1867. He was col lector of customs at Milwaukee at the time. Not until March, 1868, did he take out a patent. The first type writer was a rather crude affair, but the fundamental principles of tht first machine remain in every type bar machine today. Sholes died in 181*0. He was a consumptive and shared the fate ol many of those with a spark of geniui, for when he was buried not even a headstone marked his grave. Now it is proposed—3o years after his death—to honor him. A monument is to be placed over his grave when the $3,000 which it will cost is col. lected. About $1,500 has been sub scribed in sums of $1 or less. Sholes got scant recognition while he lived. He gets little more today. Yet he was one of the great labor savers of the world.
