The Impossible | Inventor By R RAY BAKT.R. j| iji, 19X1, by ItrOur, Syndic.t l The Childs m>lels paused at tli* 1 sound of hammering which issued ;■in a Imrn-likc atructure set some ulsiamc from the wootlluiui lli tin - } were traveling. ltutli. tlie younger, laughed aloud. "There's poor old Uhoderic invent ing something," .-he Mini, with a strong suspicion of derision in tier tone. ••Wonder what it can he now —a lamp iluif will litirn tin- same electricity twice or u wheelbarrow without han dle. V" llihlii, two year- older, smiled for a moment, hut quickly a look of wist fulncss dashed to her dark face. "Ithodcrlck Smith Is a genius," she said gently, and seemed to sigh. "Some day lie'll invent something worth while." ltiith continued to laugh. "He’d better hurry, then. Nothing he has invented so far has been a llnnmiul success or lias done anybody in the world any good, lie's Impos sible.” Hilda was silent as they walked along toward home. She was disap pointed because Uhoderic whs not mnking good at something, hut she would not admit it. She had been in love with him a couple of years ago and they had practically become en gaged. Then he lieeame jtossessed with n iminln for Invention and gave up his joli as mechanic in a garage in the city of Ilayton. Now he was working on a brand new idea, shutting himself oft from the world like Kdisnn. “It'll make me rich —nmybe,” he said enthusiastically tln'oe weeks ago when Hilda saw him the last time. "Then you and I cun do what we planned—unless you change your mind.” In truth, Hilda was changing tier mind. She laid lost contideucc in Uhoderic, had come to the conclusion lie was doomed to dream his lit** away, hurtling up his energy in useless ex periments. and another man had come across her horizon. Where tile path converged with a sidewalk and lost itself in cement Hilda and Ituth met this man. II - * was walking rapidly along, head erect, arms swinging. His attire was a lots Incss stilt with a check that verged on “loudness." His eyes always snapped and he had an effulgent smile ready at his command. This smite spread across his countenance when lie met tin - girls, bringing himself to a sudden stop. “Afternoon, ladies. Whither going?" “Home,” said Ituth. "We're taking some oranges to Clifford." Clifford was their invalid brother, who had never walked and always had made hi' way about in a wheel chair, either Hilda or Ituth usually being the motive power. “Oh, Clifford." said the business like young man. "Too had about him. \\ ih i could do something f-or him. Wait tIII this new deal of mine turns out. Maybe I'll lie rich: and then— Won derful day, isn't it? May I call this evening?" The question was directed at Hilda, and sin- smiled and nodded. “Hood," lie said. "This old town's pretty dead, isn't it? Nothing to keep it awake except Uhodcrick Smith's noise. 1 Imard it terrific hammering from his machine simp tlfis morning. Itright chap, that ; hut his intelligence is misdirected. I’d give him a job if he'd work at it, but lie prefers to in vent. I guess he'll never do anything worth while for the human race. On the other hand, look at me. Kver.v resort lot I sell here in Oloverdale is doing somebody good. It provides a way to fresit air for the smoke-inhal ing city dwellers, and it brings dollars to the local merchants. I'll he ttie making of this town yet. Well, good by; I've got to run up to the city for an hour." "tlood-by, Mr. Howard,” the girls returned, and watched him hustle up the street. Before long ilic girls arrived at a neat ivy-covered collage, which was their abode. Their father was county clerk Htid that was the reason of llieir residence in Cloverdale, which was tlie county scat. Ilis salary was by no means princely, hut tlie Childs fam ily enjoyed a good living. Mrs. Childs was busy in the kitchen when the girls entered, while Clifford sal in a lug armchair by a window, reading a hook. He was emaciated and pale, but his rutlier attractive lountenanee lighted tip when he saw his sisters. Clifford had tried at times to work in an office, lull Ids frail constitution would not permit it; so now lie busied himself writing poetry, sonic of which lie had been aide to dispose of for small stilus. He dearly loved oranges. "Tomorrow afternoon," he said. "I'm going out in the wood—for in spiration. That is, if it doesn't rain and if one of you Idg sisters will wheel me." lie ls>gaii peeling an orange. But tit*' next day it rained, and tin next and the next Mr. Howard called twice during tin- week, hut no proposal wus forthcoming. Kvidcntly he was waiting for the nig deal to come off. ami 1-e spoke enthusiastically of its progress Tlie rain continued for a vvi*ek. and then came a bright smi'hlny Monday.

It is naturally run led that man cannot equal nature's handiwork in many particulars, such as painting the lily, hut while this is true It is given to him to rival her In other Smli is tin- ease when it comes to abrasives, and not only is it |M<ssihl* to produce artiflcinlly a corundum hav ing more desirable properties than the natural, hut it i* also possible to pro duce another abrasive of an entirely different nature not found anywhere in ii natural state. This latter product Is carborundum, a compound of curium and silicon. Roth the iirtitb'inl corundum and ear- Imrunduni are produced by the same means In the electric furnace. The Ptarmigan. Among Kuropean birds the ptarmi gan is unique, tor it is the only spe cies that remains at its haunts on the highest hills in winter as in summer. In the British Islands the ptarmigan is not alone in its nesting on the roof of Scotland. As its companions ar* frequently found the confiding dot terel. tin- golden eagle, the peregrine falcon, and the snow hunting. Hut tin- dotterel i* there only during the Hue slimmer months, the eagle and peregrine are visitors only to the high hills, their nesting ground—and tints their tru • Inline is at lower eleva tions. while the snow hunting at the coining -if winter eeks tin- glens ami sheltered carries.
