Every Woman Likes To
Beautify Her Home
The "instinct for the beautiful" is a part of every woman,
and is most often expressed in her home.
She likes to embroider dainty pillows, bedspreads and
towels and make richly colored lamp shades —and she
plans to add glistening aluminum or enamel utensils that
save time and make the kitchen beautiful—and attractive
china and silver to her table—and soft rugs for living
rooms and sleeping-rooms—and colorful, homelike dra
peries of cretonne and silk to the windows—and she will
find Miss Knight, of Hochschild. Kohn fc Co., interested
and eager to help.
In the Art Department are stamped bedspreads,
pillow-tops and towels. Miss Knight will select
a pretty design for you and send enough cotton
or wool to complete the embroidery.
Miss Knight will visit the Kitchenware and China
Sections in the Basement, if you wish. She will
select samples of draperies and send descriptions
and prices of rugs, curtains, odd chairs, card ta
bles or anything else you may request. Write to
her today.

A hhii'li on Ids iirui arrested him.
“It's rather n pity. Isn't it." Margaret i
Andrews i|uestioned him, "for the last
of the (ierrishe* to let the property
go out of the faintly?" I
"Yes, young lady," admitted I’aiig
hurn. "It I*. Hiidolllitedly. Hut. lord,
these young eliups nowadays—what's i
a few acres and a hitiieh of rows com
pared to the Ktihway rush and the
hriglit white lights? Henry seems to
think he mil set Wall street on tire
with the proceeds from the sale of the
farm. However, good-day. Miss An
drews." Abruptly lie checked Ids com
meiits on what was undoubtedly Ills
client's own business.
I.eft alone, Margaret watched her
reeent visitor's ear grow smaller and
smaller along the ribbon of road that
threaded the Wnodhrhlgc hills. Hut
her thoughts were elsewhere with
old Henry Herrlsli. who a few days
before had gone to Join his fathers
on the hill; with voting Henry tier
risli. whom she liml never seen until
the dnv of the funeral, and then only
at a distance a* lie stood muflted in
his coat, head bent, beside his father's
grave.
For Henry had gone out to an uncle
ranching it in the West some months
before Margaret's arrival In Wood
hrldge mid Imd not come home until
summoned by the death of his father.
There had followed idle speculation In
tile neighborhood as to Henry's Inten

tlons regarding the farm. Would he
follow his futtier's and grandfather's
footsteps? Today those queries had
been answered, for Henry. Immediate
ly after the brief reading of his fath
er’s will had instnieted I'angburn to
put the old homestead on the market
A* lime passed, however, and the
place remained unsold, Margaret came
to feel for It a continually Increasing
fondness. Watching the spring sow
ing of Helds rented to a neighbor, tend
Ing the small flower gardens about the
doorways, opening the windows to flood
with sterilizing brightness the unused
house, dusting the quiet rooms all
these activities developed In her al
most a sense of part ownership with
Henry Herrlsli. And more and more
she waxed Indignant with him for
wishing to dispose of his Inheritance.
Would-be purchasers happened along
now and again, hut for one reason or
another departed unimpressed One
year passed two years- three
Then one sunny afternoon In April
into John I'anghtirn's dingy office
stalked # seedy looking youth with
worried lines about Ids eyes. "I.ook
here. Mr i'anghurn,'' he began with
out preamble. 'Tin hard up. Things
haven't panned out ns 1 hoped What
I get In from the farm hardly pays |
the taxes. The house won't rent. ,
Why the deuce doesn't the place sell?" :
I’anghurn shook his head. “Henry.
I don't know. It's the dickens of a
ways for me to travel down with ev
ery Tout. I >lck and Harry, hut I’ve
wondered sometimes do you suppose
that that Miss Andrews queers the
deal? She'll lose her little Income If
she sells the farm."
Henry maided. "Huess you're hit
It. And she stands to get the com
mission lit the end. Listen, now—-I've
nu Idea The girl doesn't know me.
Staid me down to look It over as a |
buyer and I'll size up the situation." j
"Good scheme." said I‘atighiirn. "a
confounded good scheme I"
Three days later Margaret slipped '
a letter Into Its envelope, sighing a*
she did o. “Sounds like business till*
time.” she said to herself. “I'm afraid
that Idiot Henry Herrlsli l going to
h>*c I,is gold mine.''
That afternoon acr
InHt of til** (iPITIHIIPH (pro tPlll.) fol
lowed In amnxement Margaret's slim
figure nnd marveled at th<- words
which fell from her lips. How unfulr
had Panghurn been 1
"Can’t you see It T‘ she whs de
manding. “Those forty acres lu corn,
the west twenty In HlfulfH. that swnmp
drained for celery, the timber lot
cleared and yielding a little ready
cash, good utility stock in the chicken
runs, a few grade cows to start
with— *’
"This line of talk,” mused llenry to
himself, bewildered, “should bnve
nailed every customer." Aloud. “I
wonder why the present owner doesn't
keep It?" lie said. "Why does he sell?"
"Because," said Margaret promptly,
“lie's an Idiot I”
"Oh.” said Henry thoughtfully. “I
see."
On Ills return to town Henry cast
a bombshell at I’nngburn's feet.
"Heavens, man." be cried. “She made
the place so darned attractive I'm go
ing to farm It myself!"
One year from the day sbe'njet him
Margaret Andrews married Henry
<lerrlsh and came back from the little
Woolhrldge church to the old house
slip had tended. Standing on the
south veranda In the mellow air of an
Indian summer twilight, watching the
lights twinkle out in her parents’ home
on the hill a quarter of a mile away,
she and her husband fell to talking
of the circumstances which had
brought them together.
"Funny." ruminated Henry, “old
I'nnghurn thought maybe the place
didn't sell because you ran It down,
or something of the sort.'
Margaret was silent a moment.
Then, "Maybe." she confessed slowly,
“lie was tight. You see. I hated to
s<*<- old llenrv Gerrish's son squander
the work of years and generations.
Not that I ever actually said anything
—only. well. I could have been more
enthusiastic!"
"Itut why.” demanded Henry, puz
zled. "did you prtllse It to the skies to
me? You didn't know It was me —"
"Idlin'! I?" laughed his bride of an
hour. "Ito you suppose, Henry tier
l-isli. I could dust the photograph of
a man with a dimple In Ills left cheek
every few days for three years and
not recognize him when I saw him?”
FIGURES LARGELY IN BIBLE
Askalon Mentioned Many Time* a* a
City of Some Importance—Ha*
Long Been Buried.
Askalon Is mentioned in the Bible
many times. Judges tell of its cn|t
ture by Judah when the Hebrew chil
dren swept across the .lordun from
the desert But It was recaptured.
Samson operated 111 Its neighborhood,
killing In the city the 30 young men
who had Induced Ills Philistine wife
(not Ilelllah. but her predecessor) to
betray the answer to his famous rid
dle. and thus caused Samson to lose
a bet. /.eponllih foresaw that Aska
lon would come to a had end. "for
tlaza would be forsaken and Aska
lon a desolation." And no one enn
forget tin- lamentation of Ihivld over
the defeat and death of Saul. Ills king
and Jonathan. Ids soul-brother, which
■ qiens: “Tell It not In (•nth. publish
it not in the streets of Askalon lest
the daughters of the Philistines re
joice."
In the Twelfth century Hlchiird
t'oeur de I.ion partly rebuilt the Aska
lon fortress, and William of Tyre, the
historian of the Crusaders, describes
tin- town. But it was lost beneath
layers of sand until the work of ex
cavation began, and In the great war
It was for a long time the advance
post of the British exjiedltlon. Its
slow emergence brings back ancient
days and shows again how accurate
Is the Bible as a hook of history.
Nothing Unusual.
A sentry post atop the Hock of
Gib. has standing orders to report
anything unusual which occurs <ne
night a soldier walking near this post,
fell over the side, dropped Ifeet
and quite naturally was killed The
body was recovered the next morn
ing by the shore patrol. All of the
men who had been on duty the night
before were called up l-eforc S O. P.
and questioned regarding the Incident.
One sentry boldly admitted having
seen the man killed.
“Why didn't you report this Imme
diately?"
Well. sir. my orders are to report
anything unusual and I couldn't see
where there was anything unusual
about a man being killed after he falls
a thousand feet!” Far Seas.
Winning Nigeria.
There Is no part of the world where
the movement toward Christianity Is
so strong as in Nigeria In one year
there were more adult baptisms In
Nigeria than In the whole of India.
Cevloh and China put together. The
number of adult baptisms In 1010 were
as follows: Nigeria. 7.01 M; India and
Ceylon, 2,714 and Chinn. 1,71*1. Un
like the mass movements in India,
every stratum of soelety Is equally
Involved.
Driven to It.
