Two years under the Annual Budget System backed by over forty w:irs of consecrated servicc . to mankind along tried and proven lints, linds the Salvation Army an t'vor increasingly powerful agency [or good. While unchanging in character nr its body politic unsevered by rreditable popularity and public notice from its dedicated purpose mil aim, this militant Christian forcc has gone forward quietly, ex tending its service and help where ver and whenever called upon re jardlfss of who or what the sub let might be; considering not the <>st, but mindful always of the i cod? and, with its intelligent and ympatlietic understanding of hu manity's problems, its ever constant oncern has been adequately to fill ho bill. In this regard two dominant fac ors have acted as deterrents: i. e. ;ick of sufficient pcrsonuel and in idequale linance. Modern, constructive measures ire required; a general awakening if the civic consciousness of the A nerican Community as to condi ions existent; and the adoption of roper methods of correction and tlief are essential to the healthy nil happy functioning of eommu i'? .liul home life and to this end, !:?

SUNFLOWERS AS BEAN POLES i ' ? Qardenors Have Ingenious Method of Decreasing the Cost of Raising Popular Vegetable. Tbe high cost of wood has ut tost affected even the humble bettn pole. While tbe cost of bean poles may seem to be a ifaere trifle, one him hut to con sider the scores used In large fields and note the price of even soft woods to see that the total can be a great item In overhead. To beat this gar deners bave tried out with snccess the ?giant Russian sunflower. They -plant ed two or three seeds with each hill of climbing b?ms, and thinned to leave one sunflower plant to each hill. Up this live "pole" the beans twined , aud ascended. Tbe Hardener kept all leaves off the sunflower except several at the very top. They made excellent poles, yielded a crop of their own, and were cheap. Low cost and the conven ience with which they are provided, are big advantages of the smnflower bean pole. Of course, the sunflower isn't the tirst makeshift beun pole. Through out those farming regions of Amer ica where wood is scarce, climbing beans for decades have been planted almost wholly in the corn. There are western farmers who don't know what you mean when yon speak of "pole" Ilea ns. They c;?Jl them "cornstalk" beans, because of the universal use of I lie lUHke-diift polo. i First Porcelain Money.

Selina Singi By DOROTHY DO'OCLAS I X^"I. hy McClUrr N*MMp?v?er ??jrn.!t'Mt? ) j j SHiim was the possessor of u won- 1 dori'u! voice. She had bounty. success I and a fund of good health. ller ' health. Inrnvvcr. she preserved with ; great euro. and took her walks ok teg | ularly ns a well-running clock ticks, i Each afternoon, hail or snow, saw Sollnn In low-heeled hoots and com- 1 fortable walking costume leaving her hous?? In the lower Forties for her j constitutional of an hour between live aud six o'clock. And although Se lina had success, health and most all the good thing* that life had to offer, she still had failed to find the one greatest of all gifts. | Selluu had never loved richly, seri j ously nor yet even happily, and she I had reached the use of thirty-three. It was not that Selina was of a cold temperament- ? far from It. Dut if had seemed bo her that the men who had loved her could easily do without her. They till were self-suf tlclent and s.h?? would never till the vital place in their lives that she felt love ought to fill. She was curiously hampered by a perhaps exaggerated sense of desire to he ati absolute part of the man who loved her. She wanted a man to be that essential element In her own life ? if she were to really love. Many of those thoughts were what passed through her mind while she took h??r daily walk, and divers prob lems were happily solved during the const itutlooal hour. Selina had not realized that In one of the houses she passed her voice, re produced Into Its glorious perfection, was dally listened to with eager ears by a nerve-worn, weary hem of the . war. But one evening when a soft dusk was creeping down over the city j street, Selina, passing that house and j for the first time conscious that it was I her own voice she was hearing and I had heard each evening subconscious j Stopped to Glance Within the Unshad ed Window. J Iv (luring ;i long period, stopped to I glance within the unshaded window. Sitting with head forward and with weariness iiiiti nerve strain easting its terrible whiteness over his fuee, was u man whom Selina thought was the soul of tragedy. IJefore the war he must have heen hlg and powerful and a hie to face a world of struggle and to conquer it. Now, lie was a shadow, a man riveted down to the ghastly memories of the battlefield. Selina's sixth ?ense told her all this as plain ly as if his nurse hovering discreetly In the room beyond had told her. That same sense urged Selina Into (hat room. Something told her her presence, her voice was needed to stay a mind from eternal wandering among the shadows. She did not know that a crisis was near in tlint tired brain ? that hidden cords were ready to snap ? but she told the nurse that she wanted to sing in person to the man who was listening to the repro duction. The nurse looked Into Selina's eyes, recognized her as the great contral to who hnd given her wonderful voice so freely to the flighting men. and wel comed her warmly. "He went right through if all," she told Selina, indicating her patient: "he Joined with the Itrltlsli at the be ginning. We arc having a losing strtig j gle with nerves and brain." Selina looked pityingly at the h'g man who had not as yet seen to whom Ids nurse was sinking. When he turned and looked at her his eyes lit for the tlrst time in many months. A slow glow kindled and Selina knew ? that the soldier was familiar with her fnce as well as her voice. "I heard my voice on the machine," h1h< said by way of making a reason for her visit, "and I have taken the Hlx'ity of coming in to sing to you in person." She took the hand he eagerly helil out to her and held It in a warm | life giving grip. "May I sing for jrouf" Till H f?KH M pt'i'fctt fool, Of* your vtk*," ho .said ciowlv. und gazed with *11 his buul in his tired i?yw ut | Sell iv* as if not realising that she actually stood before him. His nerves were ut snapping lM>:ut. Sellim knew that he was having u great mini's tight to retain control. | "You <ang tor us over there." he added. "I have never forgotten your voice ? it is the only thing on the face of the ?*arth that gives me a see | oml's r?-st from ? havoc." Selina had a moment of inner thanksgiving that she had b??en per mitted to pass this particular house and enter therein. "I hiu going to sing, then," sh?? said gladly," "ami every day until jou are tirvil hearing me I will come and sing any songs you want to hear." She smiled her rich, womanly smile directly into John Hay ward's heart. She sang, and the sweetness and emotional timbre of her voice with its wonderful essence of potential energy ttnd life stirred the soul of llayward as it had not been moved in many a long mouth. The song was Just a simple little thing. A hit of hope and love and cheer. But it snapped the tension In llay w nnl's nerves; the over long pent up control broke and he sobbed us only a strong man can sob. .Selina looked at the nurse ami mo tioned her to leave them uloue. She understood Just what this breaking of the floodgate would mean to the Jag ged nerves. Calm would follow and then a steady return to serene thought. She went over and put her arm gen tly across his shoulders. After a mo ment he looked up at her. "I'm u tool," he repeated, "but your voice sweeps the very foundations away. Oon't think I carry on this way often ? 1 haven't done it- ? uot in years. Please forgive me." An almost imperceptible movement gave his head greater shelter against Sellnu's nrm. She looked into his eyes and the light in her own was very wonderful to behold. The man who could not do without her ? the one who would one day look to her for his entire cup of happiness and to whom the greatness of her nature would llow out and offer its big sacrifices and wor ship ? that man was resting against the mothering warmth of her arms. She left him after a short time, wanting him to think and realize that he was on the path back to health of and body. "I have been ur.able to concentrate or to even write an intelligent letter," he had confided to her. "The facts have been wearing my nerve away inch by inch. You have stayed the devastating progress. I will soon show you that I am a man and not a chlid," he said with earnest eyes fixed on Selina. "But you must come and sing to nte for a time until I find my self quite able to forget. You will not think me weak?" "Weak," said Selina softly. "No J A. strong man is always a strong man ? even In his weakness he is strong. I will he here tomorrow and every? tomorrow." Hayward and Sollna possessed many great gifts, but the greatest of all was now their own. Should Sleep Seven Hours. Extremely energetic and strong peo ple are apt to take a virtuous pride In limiting themselves to four or tlve hours of sleep and consider more than this a disgraceful evidence of laziness, says Mothers' Magazine. It is quite possible to accustom one's self to such an amount of sleep and the results may not show immediately, but in the end you will be the loser thereby. From seven to eight hours of sleep are needed by all people leading in-live lives, and if for any reason your reg ular amount ?>f sleep is broken into it should be made up by extra sleep as soon n< possible.

THE MISSING SHARES Br HAROLD S1NCLAI RE They called him "Old Jennings" at the office, though lie was not much past forty. But then he had been a bookkeeper for the Hammer Tress company for 20 years and was by far tbe longest employed of all the 300 odd persons in the big building devoted to the manufacture of the pat ent printing machine. Jennings an tedated President Bland and the treas urer, Mulcahy, and lie could remem ber the time when the Hammer Press company was a small concern operat ing in a tiny shop on Masterman street. Just ss Jennings was the oldest of the men. ho Miss -Mary ? Hewlett was. the oldest of ttw? women employees. In a very few years people would be gin to speak of her as an old maid. Miss Hewlett was past thirty ? Old Jennings had never been any thing but a bookkeeper. He had been bookkeeping for Van Tuysen, the in ventor of the famous press, in the first days of the company. Van Tuysen, had he known the real ?alue of his Invention, might have become a millionaire. But tie waft an easy-going, credulous sort of fellow. But on Saturday evenings Jennings would visit him at hi* cheap lodging house. Van Tuysen's hatred of/ Bland was profound, his pride In his inven tion supreme. It was grief at the loss of his factory that drove him deeper Into the. mire. On Sundays Old Jennings would call on Miss Mary Hewlett and they would take a quiet stroll in the park together. They had been engaged for a number of years. "Btat we can't be married on $60 a week," said Oftl Jennings. ! On the Saturday before Christmas Old Jennings was not at his post. Everybody wondered, for he had never been known to miss a day during the whole period of ids service with the company. Itut that evening he was at Van Tuysen's lodgings, us usual. The doctor had given the latter only a month longer to live. "I guess I'm done for, John," unit- I tered the old inventor, stretching out a bony hand in greeting. "And you'll be at your old post years after I'm in the ground." "I've lost, my Job," said Old Jen ! nl ngs prosaically enough. "Bland sent ; for me yesterday. 'Jennings,' lie said, j 'I guess we'll have to let you go. j We'iv cutting down expenses :tnd en n't j afford to keep you any longer.'" i "Why," shouted Van Tuysen, "they've got money in burn. They're ' as rich as? as? " 1 !?? could nuf lind j a suitable simile. j "John." said Van Tuyson, "bring me i mat tin box In the cabinet, won't you? Good ! Now lake this key olT iny neck and open it." "One hundred shares In the narn mer Press company," said Van Tuy sen grimly. "They're worth about 310,000 now, John. It's all that was left to me ? and I had the sense to hold on to it. And it's yours, John, after I'm dead. After? No, now." Strange to say, John Jennings was at his desk as usual on tho Monday morning, and the men in the office, v^ho had learned of his discharge, looked at him in surprise, and winked, and muttered that the old bookkeeper must be losing bis wits. So thought Mulcahy, the treasurer, when he caught sight of liim. Bland, too, caught sight of Jennings, and stopped to ask him why he was there. "Now, Jennings," he began Boinpous ly. when they were alone together, "we can't do anything more for you. If It's that ? " "No, Mr. Hlund, it's this," said Old Jennings, and spread an engraved doc ument upon the table. Mr. Bland looked at it and sprang up out of his chair. i "It's the missing hundred shares I" he gasped. "Where did you get it, Jennings? It's a forgery." "No, sir, ifs the missing hundred shares. You said so, Mr. Bland," re ttfcrned Old Jennings quietly. ?^WelT, what '<& you want?" Inquired Bland; sinking back In his choir and : iwffcl?IUg Aervnusrv at the morocco ptojdlng. _*T1} tell you," Old Jennings an swered. "You'll do three thlugs, and srgn nn agreement now." "Name them, Mr. Jennings," said Bland. "Well, sir," said Old Jennings, "you know that I was associated with Mr. Van Tuysen in the first days of the machine, and I know a whole lot about It. So you will give me a ten years' contract as head of the foundry at ? what does Mr. Rogers get? ? All, yen. $r? 000 u year." . "But what about Rogers?" "That's so," Jennings agreed. "Well, as assistant, then, at $*I.r?00. with reversion if Mr. Rogers shall leave you." Tie was always a soft fool. Old Jennings was. "Secondlj, yoi. will appoint Mr. Van Tuysen heart of the assembling room, at tin* same 1 salary." j "Well, what's the third condition?" ; growled Bland savagely. | "A month's leave of nbseittv on lull j salary for .Miss Hewlett and myself. ' sir," said Old Jennings. "You see. sir. we are expeeting to get married ? t? morrow. After that she's going to : h :n e you." 1 And when Old Jennings waited Tor ; Mary Hewlett that night at i In* otlhv. ?door there was a look on his fae? ' h i :-h told her what she "wanted t> j know fully live seconds before ho i kissed her. ?ALWAYS PLEASES ALL WAYS." "The Greenbrier Velvet" Cream of Ice Creams.
