shock of tumbled brown
hair and eyes that were
lighted with a fever fire
came up from out the
parched grass at San
chez cattle ranch, near
Tla Jauna, Mexico, one
afternoon as the yellow
sun's burning rays lay
aslant the red mesa land.
The copper faced cowboys, sitting at
the door of their shack, looked up
with astonishment at the haggard lit
tle stranger. They saw a bare five
feet of frailty in sadly worn shoes and
trousers, with wrists no bigger than
two fingers, hands of, a child and a
face that didn't seem to belong to th«
rest of the shadow.
"Long way from home, sonny, ain't
yuh?" asked one of the men, who had
left a real name in the east and be
come "Poker Chip Charley" for cow
punching purposes, "and a bit hungry,
too, I guess eh?"
And without waiting for an answer
they took the shadow in and seated it
at a table and fed it all it could eat,
which is a hospitality denied none in
the land of longhorns.
A w^fek thereafter the shadow lay
upon a cot in the big ranch house,
with a bandage about the temples and
the delicate heart pumping so feebly
that only the trained ear of a nurse,
who had been brought up from Tla
Jauna, could hear it.
"How did it happen?" she asked.
"Why, miss," said "Poker Chip
Charley," "the youngster called his
self the kid cowboy, and he wanted to
hook a leg on the friskiest horse on
the ranch just to show us what he
could do. So, miss, we give in and

Kid "Cowboy" a Girl.
That night the boss of Sanchez

with a bit of news. The kid cowboy
was a girl, an Innocent little runaway*
from the states. Her name was Jean
By the time she had g^own into
early teens she was seized with a
stronger wanderlust. It would not let
her rest. She seemed bewitched by
the ever-moving light of some will-o'
the-wisp. Powerless to control her
self, she fled one day to Long Beach,
where in boy's clothes that she had
contrived to borrow, she found work
in a bowling alley. A police alarm
was sent far and wide. The girl read
it, but did not return.
A woman probation officer, much
taken by the pretty child, discovered
her disguise and she was taken back
to Judge Barclay's home, and with a
solicitude for her future they placed
her under the kindly tutorship of the
sisters at a convent.
Her brain having been set awhirl in
some strange way, and in its wild
working having cast her out of the
domestic orbit, she was now beyond
control. She cut out the lock of a
door that Imprisoned her and, heed
less of danger, she slid down a drain
pipe from a third-story window and
scaled the convent walls. Taking to
the highway she reached the open'
country before dawn. She found a
companion of her own years and sex
and together, dressed as boys,, they
roamed through southern California,
living as tramps and learning how to
ride the slant-hipped ponies on the
ranches like vaqueros.

the girl's welfare she was wafted
away like a thistledown in the wind.
This time she was carried far across

Angeles after'this wide swing in the
open was inspired as is now known,
to a temporary restoration of those
faculties which guide the morals. She
went at once to Judge Barclay's home.
She was calm and penitent. Mrs. Bar

MAKING GOOD CIDER VINEGAR
Process Is Simple and Involves Very
Little Work—Cleanliness Is First
(By S. M. MILLER.)
There are many apple orchards, es
pecially those that have never been
sprayed or cultivated, in which large
quantities of 'apples are allowed to go
to waste every year.
Such fruit makes a good grade of
cider vinegar, and a handsome profit
can be made in utilizing It in this way.
Even if one sprays and cultivates the
orchard regularly each season and
does everything possible to prevent
having anything but marketable fruit
there will always be a good many
However, do not allow these unmer
chantable apples to go to waste. Make

good price for the product right here
Making cider vinegar is very simple.
There is practically no labor attached
to it other than extracting the Juice
from the apples.
Perfect cleanliness first, last and all
the time is a matter of vital impor
tance. Apples that are picked up from
the ground -are usually dirty and
should be thoroughly washed beiore
being placed. In the cider mill.
The mill and all utensils used in the
making must be kept well cleaned if
a good product is to be made. To use
unclean fruit or unclean vessels sim
ply invites bad fermentation.
If all sorts of germs which are found
on dirty and decayed fruit are put in
the cider a good quality of vinegar
must not be expected.
Where one has no mill the fruit can
be pulped by hand with wooden mauls
In a wooden trough, and where only a
sufficient quantity of vinegar is want
ed for home use it' is not a difficult
matter to secure It in this,.way.
The best receptacles in which to
put the cider are molasses fcega or
barrels, preferably those which have
held vinegar previously, since fermen
tation commences sooner when the fer
menting organism is present than
when it must find its way into the
liquid from outside mediums.
To made a good grade of vinegar
two factors are essential during the
process of fermentation. First, the
air must have free access to the liquid
to support the organism. Second, the
temperature must be favorable for the
growth of the fermenting agent
The barrels or kegs should be placed
in a room where the temperature will
be fairly constant at 70 to 75 degrees,
placed on their sides In order to give
more surface to the atmosphere, and
filled with the Juice to within six In-t
ches to eight inches of the bunghole.

RULES AND RECIPES
FOR THE PREPARATION AND
PRESERVATION OF JAM.
Remarkable Precautions Are Impera

Must Be Kept in Mind.
Granted a little care, jam making at
home does not present great difficul
ties and really entails very little ex

grown. There are a few rules to be
borne In mind, as follows:
Do not allow tin, iron, or pewter to
touch the jam, as any of these are
liable to spoil the color.
Everything employed In the jam
making must be scrupulously clean.
The sugar must be the best.
The fruit must be gathered on a
dry day, any that is imperfect or dam
aged being discarded. It should be

dropping a little on a plate it jellies.
Jam .should be toiled fast to preserve
the color of the fruit, and kept well
All scum must be carefully removed
as It rises.
Dry fruit requires the addition of a
little liquid to prevent its burning,
and for this either water, rhubarb or
currant juice may be used.
Jam must be stored in a cool, dry
place, free from drafts and in an even
If any jam is spilt on the jars when

damp cloth wrung out in hot water.
Pear Jam—Core out, but do not peel,
some good, ripe pears, slice them,
crush them well in a bowl, and wring
the pulp through very strong muslin.
For every pound of this pulp add one
half pound of sugar, previously boiled
to a thick.syrup. Cook it very slowly
on the stove until reduced to about
two-thirds its original quantity. It
should, when ready, be of the consist

one pound loaf sugar and as little rose
water as you can manage. Take one
