Bhe stood at the screen door, hor face white, her hands trembling. "Oh. Pa!" she repeated as her husband made no response. He was gazing at the dog, where it lay right across the path at his feet. At the reiterated appeal Amos looked up impatiently, hushing with j anger. "Well, what of it?" he challenged, i "If a dog attacks me I have a right: to defend myself, haven't I?"* John Butler, hearing the shot, had come out of the house bv the front < door and now spoke. Until then Amos had not known that he was at! his side. "You could have hit the dog over' the head with the butt of the gun," j he remarked. "You would not have killed him then, for he is certainly! stone dead." "I don't care if he is." the farmer, declared. "I've told Talak often to: keep that dog out of my way. lie was not safe." "If would have been well if man and dog had both been dismissed! long ago." Butler commented dryly.! "Here comes Talak now."

FRIDAY EVENING. to the dining room, then, following ! Butler's example, had come out of the house ty the main door. She now awaited at a little distance from where the dog lay. Sulov Talak's eyes fell on her he fore he saw the other actors In tliei little drama. A silly grin spread over! his face. "Who's been shootin'?" he asked.! The Pole Weeps A moment later and the group at j the kitchen door, the dog lying at their feet, came within his range of vision. He stopped short, all the color! leaving his leathery cheeks. Then; he started forward, his hands clench-! ed. "Who—who!" he stammered. j Amos answered the unspoken! question. "I shot your dog," he explained defiantly. "He started to attack me- A minute more and he would have had me by the throat. I warned! you before" — He got no further. With a shrill \ curse, the half-witted Pole rushed' at him. The farmer recoiled, but he would not have escaped had Butler not seized the excited creature by the: shoulders and held him firmly. "Careful! careful!" he warned, as! Talak tried to free himself. Don't, touch Mr. Cliapin, my man. Re-1 member that there's a jail down at; Midland where you might have to' stay for some time if you hurt him." The man's arms dropped to his side. "Damn him!" he groaned, then burst into tears. "Shut up that whining!" Amos ex ploded. He felt that he had been j put in the wrong by every person} present, and this enraged him. I "Here" —with a motion toward the! dead dog—"take that carcass out of the way. And see that you clean vp| that mess of blood, too. Do you j hear?" Talak bent over the dog. sobbing and muttering something that the; farmer's ears did not catch. John Butler, who stood closer, i heard the threat. It was well, ue reflected, that Amos did not hem it. It is a dangerous thing to win: the hatred of a man with only half! a mind. If Chapin appreciated this he might be acutely uneasy. But Amos Chapin trusted to h-s own powers of bullying to protect: him. "Drag that beast off, clean up' that spot, bury the dog. then get to] work" he commanded sharply. "And j don't let me hear any more nonsense. After this perhaps you'll rememDer that's it's not safe to cross me." Elizabeth Steals Away "Xor me neither!" the other ex-j claimed.

Elizabeth Wade walked down towards the orchard. A step behind her made her turn. Butler was at her side. "Miss Moore." he said anxiously, "you have had no breakfast, you know."

The following rules for the con | servation of gasoline were outlined ! by the oil division of the fuel ad : ministration: Don't run engines when the autoi i mobile is not running. Avoid overfilling tanks and see that no gasoline is spilled or leaks. | Adjust carburetors to work on the thinnest possible mixture.

Do you see nwny good-looking girls in Berlin now?" j In this connection I may mention, that many of the more sober officers' told ■ me that they were disgusted I with the manner in which the Crown Prince was acting at his headquar- j ters. "It is really a disgrace," they complained, "for the Crown Prince to have so many questionable women visiting him. It certainly doesn't set much of an example for the rest of the staff." The whole situation appeared to: the Crown Prince very much in the j light of a joke. "I've lust come from the western j front," he tcld me. "My men are up l to their knees in water and mud. i We've been having lot of fun pump ing the water out of our trenches into the French trenches." "Well, I suppose the French pump it right back, don't they?" "You're quite right, quite right. That's exactly what they do. Really, it's a great lark!" Remarks of this kind rather sick ened me of this self-satisfied ydung man. I realized, of course, that his! part in the war was played at such j a safe distance from the front lines that he was probably not familiar with all the horrors of trench war-] ware, and yet it could not be possi- ] blc that he was unaware of the terri-] ble loss of life and the untold agony ] and s-• ring which millions of his] people nad to endure while the | "nonsensical" war continued. That the Crown Prince had very I little influence in the internal af fairs of his country was Indicated, I perhaps, by an incident in which he' attempted to do me a favor. I had a new "Mercer" car which I had had sent over from America lustj before the war started. I had been' able to use it but little, because .he j use of automobiles by civilians was I prohibited as soon as hostilities he- i gan, and, in fact, most of the cars] were seized by the military authori- j ties. '•'or some reason, however, my car | did not appeal to them, although I confiscated the tires, i I decided to sell it In one of the Scan dinavian countries or send it back to America, but I had been unable l to get permission to do so. and I ©MAKING THE MOST OF ~ OUR CHILDREN ii A Series of Plain Talks to / By Ray C. Baary, A.8., M.A. \/ . President of the Parents Association. J V N'o. 16. Shall We Tell Our Children Fnlry Tales? (Copyrighted, ISIS, by The Parents Association, mo.) WE KNOW the value of Imagi nation to the child, and to the man. It is the great saver as well as the great sweetener of life. It is because of imagination that a man arrives—lt matters not wheth er he be an artist or a financier. He must have the vision before he can achieve. Fairy tales feed the Imagination— and what Is more Important, per haps. from The parent's point of view children love them and we long to give them what they love. But some parente object to fairy tales. For example, one father writes to me: "Don't you think that true stories .that are not overdrawn or at least stories that might be true could be made Juet UH interesting ae the stories that are out of all reason and which will have a tendency to make chil dren superstitious after they grew up? And when they find there is nothing in eueli stories as that about Santa Claua, don't you think they will turn on Christianity and say, >1 wonder if it is like the fairy etoriee I used to hear? I don't believe there ever was such a person as Jesus.' *' There is Just ana big point to be made in regard IQ fairy tales. Tq tell a ehlld a fairy tale as |f ft were a true story pf events, which actually took plaee, fs wrong, Tq tell 3 child (hat (here is 3 Santa Claus. who comes down the chimney, fs 'wr°ng. But the wrong lies in the introduc tion to the story and not in the story itself, I da fet fully ggrea that true stoFies are Just as interesting as fairy tales to children. There is a certain 1 pleasure which children get put pf fairy tales and "air castles" which they da pot get from actqaf hfatery. asked the Crown Prince if he could arrange it for me. "I'll arrange that for you al right!" he promised. A few weeks later he wrote me that if I would take the matter up again with the' authorities, it would go through without a hitch as he had notified them about it and had asked them to grant my request. I accordingly applied to the proper official, to whom I gave the Crown Prince's letter, but apparently it car ried very little weight. They kept the letter and the car is still in Ber lin. In marked distinction to the in difference of the Crown Prince to the horrors of the present war was rhe attitude of the Crown Princess. She frequently expressed to me the sorrow she felt for all the wounded and the surviving families of the killed. After the sinking of the Lusitania I told her that it looked as if that tragedy would bring the United States into the war. "It isn't that serious, is it?" she asked. i "Yes, indeed," I replied. "It will be difficult now, I imagine, to re strain Americans, and I would not be at all surprised if war were de clared without further negotiations." She looked somewhat startled, I thought, but the next time she called —some two days later —she was all wreathed in smiles, and said that my fears were ill-founded. There would be no declaration of war between America and Germany. Two or three days later came Germany's agreement tc give up her ruthless submarine warfare. Evidently she knew whereof she spoke. That her information was not al ways based on such sound founda tion, however, was indicated later on when war seemed inevitable. Again she was most optimistic and I sought to elicit from her the grounds for her assurances. "Well, there's one thing you seem to overlook," she answered, very wisely. "There are no less than twenty million German-Americans, or Americans of German anteced ents. in vour countrv. Their Influ ence will be sufficient, you may de pend upon it, to avert war between the two countries. They will take care that America never declares war against Germany. I haven't any.doubt about it at all." Although, of course, she was quite There are very few adults \yhe enjoy fairy tales, but practically all chil dren do. As nlreudy suggested, the harm which comes In eonneetion with fairy tales la due not to the fact that they are Imaginary and Impos-. slble but to the fact that they are not properly labeled by the parent, Purents should make clear to their chldren what a fairy tale is, This will not make the tale any less delightful to the child. After :'.ie proper Introduction and perhaps nn occasional reminder by the parent that the atory 1b a fairy tale, there la no more harm In let ting the ehlld enjoy hla images than in letting two boya play that chairs are horaeH, and every normal child la bound to use hia imagination In aome auoh way as this, A littl- glr( pig years eld ence asked hep mother m piy presence whether there was any Santa Claus. Her mother showed plainly she did not know exactly what to say. She hesitated and fnen paid, '"Why, pf course, there is a Santa Claus; didn't he put pandy in youF stocking )ast week?' 1 This was absolutely wrong. The question was asked in a confi dential Wfty an 4 the tnothep'a answer was a faisehoad. When the g|rj Is toid by her seHoetmates and bther* a little jater that Santa Glaug jg a myth, the child wil| naturally tend to lose faith ip her mother. The mother should have smiled and said, 'No. daughter there is np Santa Claus, bpt we all have lots of fun playing there is at Christmas time, don't we?" If this method had been used, the little girl's faith In hep mother would }>ave increased and she would have bad Just as much fun about Santa Claud in the future as if she had never been in doubt about hU reajfty. wrong in this supposition, as this was the sentiment expressed no doubt in the Kaiser's palace, she was a gifted and well-balanced woman, and I could not help thinking that if the time ever came when her hus band became ruler of Germany her wisdom might make up in part for his unfortunate shortcomings. After diplomatic relations were' broken off between America and j Germany, the Crown. Prince and his* family ceased coming to me. They] were afraid, no doubt, of public erit- | icism, although the Kaiser was not. i Of the Kaiser's other children.' Prince William Eitel Frederick and ] Prince Oscar were the only ones I ] never met. Prince Adelbert, the Kaiser's third j son, was a very handsome and j charming man. He always came to me attired in a naval officer's uni form. I saw him but a few times, as he was seldom in Berlin, and he never talked on matters of general importance. I never saw him after America entered the war. Prince August Wilhelm, the fourth son, was perhaps the most demo cratic of them all. He sometimes came to see me in an ordinary taxi cab and he was the only one of the Kaiser's sons whom I ever saw in civilian dre3s. He was the first mem ber of the royal family to come to me after the murder of the Arch duke Franz Ferdinand, and he was in mourning wdien he called. He looked very sad and dejected and gave me the first intimation that the tragedy of Sarajevo would almost in evitably lead to a general war. In January, 1918, in speaking of the part that America would take in the war, he mentioned that his of ficers had told him that 60,000 Americans were on the western front. "We don't believe it, how ever," he added. "How could they get there without our knowing it? Our U-boats would certainly have found it out. No, Davis, it's not true."

Unques tionably, they have long since re alized how unreliable was their in formation. The Prince suffered a most seri ous accident after the war started. While driving an automobile the steering gear broke and it crashed into a tree. The chauffeur was killed and the Prince fractured both legs in twelve places and sustained a fractured jaw besides. After a number of operations and several months' treatment in the hospital, he came to me on crutches. Despite IPs condition he was able to extract a certain amount of amusement out of an account of the accident which he had read in a Paris newspaper, a copy of which he had with him. It explained that the accident had in reality occurred while the Prince was frantically at tempting to dodge an enemy air plane and went on to say that the fractured jaw was the Prince's worst sorrow because he was such a pig and hated to miss his meals- The Prince thought it was a great joke. He will be slightly lame permanently as a result of this accident. (To Be Continued.)
