Gets A Surprise —I v By GEORGE V. HOBART Bunch and I had engaged Skinski to go out on the circuit with his sleight-of-hand sketch. We needed the money. Everything was ready to •tart, and Bunch and I attended to the shipping of all the scenery and props and trick stuff; we were too busy lads, believe me. On Wednesday we tried all day to locate Skinski, but he avoided pun ishment until about four o’clock in the afternoon, when we finally flagged him and began to ask him questions. ’l've been busy since Monday,” he explained; "brokers and bankers and Sawyers, and there are doings. Say! you’re two of the dead gamest sports C ever bumped into, and no matter what happens I’m for you for keeps!” "What's the reason for the crab talk?” I asked sharply. "Are you going to give us the sorry hand and how yourself out after we have put up every mazooboe we possess? What kind of a sour face ate you pulling on us?” "Wait and see," smirked Skinski. “And, by the way, nephew Bunch, I met a certain old party this morning who thinks you are very hot fried -arsnips!” ‘You did,” Bunch came back, with yawn. "Yes," replied Skinski; "and a nice old man, too, is Mr. William Grey.’ "Where the devil did you meet Mr. Orey?” Bunch Inquired excitedly. "Back, back up!" said Skinski quietly; "1 didn’t disgrace my family. Mr. Peter Grant Introduced me to him as your Uncle and 1 made good." "You met Uncle Peter, too!" I asked in alarm. "Surest thing you know.’’ said Bklnskl; "but, don’t worry. The Jef ferson family tree will never be blown down by any hot air from me, so rest easy. Now, let’s get down to cases about our opening Thursday night.’’ Bunch and I were both puzzled by Sklnski's peculiar line of talk, but we forgot U and completed all the details for the opening the next night. It was after eight o’clock when I reached home, and Peaches met me at the door with the face lights on full. "Now for the secret!” she chirped, as she dragged me into the dining room. "Make mine a small one." I admon ished; ‘Tve had a busy day.” ’’This Is a cure for all your busi ness worries,” she gurgled. "Guess what. John! We Ball for Europe next Wednesday!” “Poor Peaches!” 1 snld sympathet ically; “that's what you get for drink ing too much tea.’’ “I mean It seriously, John!" she cried eagerly. “Uncle Peter has booked passages on the Oceanic foi the whole family, and he is going to p y all the expenses for a three month/ trip.” “Water! water!” I gasped faintly, and 1 rteant It, but Peaches thought 1 was only cutting up. “I knew you'd be delighted," she capered on; “and It w’ub all I could do to keep from telling you long ago. Uncle Peter says that this Is the dull season In your brokerage business and the trip will do you a world of good. Ybu need only take a few hun dred dollars for pocket money, and he's going to Invest vour J r >.ooo whore It will be Immentuiy productive” , I could only sit and listen and pass away. What would become of Skinski and Bunch and our good money! How could I ever account for the missing funds without leading Peaches down to Wall Street and Showing her the tall buildings they had built with my dough. And while these dismal thoughts I Wat So Surprised I Dropped the Egg. ran through my mind Peaches grabbed that European trip between her pearly teeth and shook the de lights out of It. That night I had an attack of In somnia, neurasthenia, nervous pros tration and the nightmare, with cine matograph pictures on the side. All night long Skinski had me on the stage in a wicker basket, while Uncle Peter Jabbed a sword through me and Dodo (Skinski’s partner) sat in the front row on the aisle yelling “You betcher sweet!" Thursday broke clear and cloudless. Just before 1 left home for the fatal scene Peaches said. "I’m so sorry business will keep you in the city this *• icing, John; but of course I real ize you have much to do before we sail on Wednesday. Alice Grey Just phoned over that she has a box at a theater somewhere, I didn’t ask her where, but if you’re sure you won’t be home I'll go with Alice and Aunt Martha.” "By all means,” I answered, and kissing her good-bye I trolleyed to New Rochelle. Bunch was there ahead of me and so were Sxinskl and Ma’moiselle Dodo, all working like beavers. “I’m going to take the 11:40 to town,” Skinski informed us after all was in readiness for the performance “I have a very important date, haven’t 1, Dodey?” "You betcher sweet!” she puffingly replied. Bunch and I loafed around till about an hour before show time, when we put a young chap we had sworn to secrecy on the door, and then we went back on the stage and began to chatter nervously. At seven o’clock Dodo came In with one of those sunburst souses, and as she went sailing by to her dressing room she gave us the haughty head and murmured, “You betcher sweet!” Seven-thirty and no Skinski. I was afraid to tell Bunch what I "And Is That Where You Invested My Few Plunks?” was thinking, and Bunch was afraid to think for fear he’d spill something Eight o’clock came and still no Skinski. • It was pitiful. I began to see visions of an Insulted audience reaching for my collar over the prostrate form of my partner In crime. At 8:15 the orchestra leader came up to see why we didn’t ring in and Bunch told him to ring off. I told Beethoven, or whatever his name was, to tune up and play every thing In sight till 1 gave him the warning. At 8:20 Ma’moiselle Dodo waltzed out of her dressing room made up to look like a cream puff. “Where’s Skinski?” I shrieked. "It's nearly 8:30 and he's keeping that mob waiting Isn’t he going to show up!” “You betcher sweet!” she gurgled, and passed on. At 8:25 I rushed into Sklnski's dressing room, put on a swift make up. dove, Into Sklnski's fright wig, hid my face behind a false moustache and goatee, and prepared to sell my life dearly. "\\ r hat are you going to do?” asked Bunch In wild alarm. “I'm going out and pull a few moldy tricks till Skinski gets here.” I an swered heroically. Then I gave the warning to the leader and rang up the curtain. I was greeted by a harsh round of applause ns 1 stepped out and I could feel both knees get up and leave my legs. 1 pulled myself together, picked up a pack of cards and began to do things with the deck that no mortal man ever saw before, while Bunch stood in the wings with his teeth chat tering so loud they sounded like a pedestal clog accompaniment. Then 1 picked up an egg where Skinski had placed it on the tabaret and started In to do something myste rious with it. Just as 1 raised the egg to show It to the audience I got a flash of the stage box on my right, and there, gazing curiously at me, sat Peaches and Alice Grey and Aunt Martha. 1 was so surprised 1 dropped the egg. and it lay at my feet in the form of an omelet, while the house roared with joy. At thts moment. Skinski bounded on the stage, bowed right and left, and In five words he made It appear that 1 was only a comedy curtain raiser Say! 1 never was so glad to see anybody in all my life 1 backed off the stage, and be pulled something on my exit that got au awful laugh. When the curtain finally fell Skin ski was given an ovation, and when It was all over we backed into bis dress- Ingroom and sat looking at each other. "That's the last,” our star said, after a pause; "and it was a hot fin ish all right " "What do you mean?” 1 gasped, "The synuicate has bought my gold mine in the Blue Hills,” he answered calmly. "And you’re going to throw us after making a start like this?" Bunch al most sobbed. Throw nothing!" Skinski came back. "Didn't I tell you once before Ithat I am for you two guys all ths old while—didn’t L Dodey?” > “You betcher sweet!” she an swered solemnly. "Well, that still goes,” Skinski went on. "I’ve sold out a half Interest in my Blue Hills gold mine, and I’ve got the coin to show for It." ~So saying, he dug up a wad that a hound couldn’t leap over. "Now, I’m going to pay you each 16,000 to cancel my contract,” Skinski added, after our eyes had feasted on his roll. I looked at Bunch, and Bunch was stepping on his left foot to see If ha was awake. "No, by Hick! I’ll mafcg it seven thousand each,” Skinski chortled. "Oh! pinkies!" said Skfnski; "what do 1 want to go hugging one-night stands for when I have a hundred thousand booboos in the kick? It’s the Parisian boulevards for us, and a canter on the Boy Bologna, eh, Dodey?” "You betcher sweet!" she gurgled thirstily. And so it came about that we de stroyed the contract, pocketed our seven thousand each, and bade Skin ski and Dodo an affecting farewell. Bunch and I couldn’t talk for hours afterwards. We were afraid ve’d vake our selves up. Next day I handed five thousand dollars to Uncle Peter, and he com plimented me so highly on my ability to save money that I nearly swal lowed my palate. "I’m going to invest this carefully for you, John," he informed me. “When we return Pom Europe you’ll be surprised.” I don’t know what powers of per suasion Bunch brought to bear on Alice and Uncle William, but I do know that there was a hurried wed ding ceremony, and that a certain blushing bride and bashful groom and a delighted old uncle who answered roll call when you yelled Bill Grey took passage that next Wednesday with us on the Oceanic. 1 was promenading the deck with Peaches and Uncle Peter after we had been out two days when the old gen tleman said: "John, aren’t you curious to know how I invested your money?” “Not particularly,” I answered with a laugh. "John knows It is perfectly safe in your hands,” Peaches beamed. “Well, I’ll tell you,” said Uncle Peter. "Bill Grey and myself cele brated the finish of our long quarrel by going into a little business deal to gether.” "Fine!’’ I said approvingly. "We burled the hatchet,” Uncle Pe ter went on, "by investing together in a gold mine." “Where?" I asked nervously. “We formed a little syndicate and lv ght a half-interest In a mine owned by Bunch’s Uncle McGowan, out In the Blue Hills'” "And Is that where you Invested my few plunks?” 1 asked, forcing my self to be calm. "That’s it,” chuckled Uncle Peter, “and that's where Bill Grey has in vested $5,000 for Bunch.” 1 excused myself and said 1 didn’t feel like promenading—the undertow made mo dizzy. I went off by my lonesome and looked across the troubled sea. It seemed to me that I could hear a voice coming from far away behind that biggest wave, and the voice said, "You betcher sweet!” (Copyright. Q. W. DllUngha-.n Cos ) Built Church in a Day. To build a church in a day was the clever feat recently accomplished by some 160 members of the Church of Christ, says a dispatch from Mel bourne. Australia. The building, a substantial, permanent, wooden church with accommodation for over 300 persons, was erected within the twenty-four hours at Preston, near Melbourne, by volunteer labor. The building began at one o'clock in the morning, when the holes were dug for the foundation posts, and It was com pleted by acetylene £-\s light shortly after eleven o’clock at night, when the last screw In the door locks was driven home. The "workers” included some 30 skilled carpenters and 20 painters, who fo'.lowed the carpenters In their work stage by stage. Those who could neither dig. paint, saw nor , hoist were busy feeding the builders. Even the minister did his share of digging. Thousands of enthusiastic spectators watched the operations, and miles of bioscope films were taken. When the church was opened next day it was found unnecessary to at tend to a single detatl. Pews, gas fittings, notice boards, pulpit, etc, were all in position. Wanted More Light. A merchant who was talking to • Sunday school said: "Have I made it plain to you?” A little girl held up her hand. "How much is that little pink par asol In your store wiidow?” Experienced. "She Is a poem." "In four cantos." "Why do you say four caau.tr "She - * been married four time*." PLAIN DIRECTIONS GIVEN FOR IMPROVING COUNTRY ROADS Best Results Secured by Hitching Team So That Drag Will Follow At Angle of About 45 Degrees—Most Good Ob tained by Working Road Just After Rain and Longer Dragged. Better It Gets. *T never saw two road drags that were made the same way nor two men who operated a drag Just the same.” remarked a road supervisor the other day. The statement comes close to the truth, and therein is the explana tion for the difference in results ob tained from the use of the drag and the diversity of opinion regarding its value, says the Prairi- Farmer. If you want to secure the best re sults form the use of the drag bitch the team so that the drag will follow at an angle of about 45 degrees. Then drive down the road with one horse on each side of the wheel track so that the loose earth will be moved to ward the center of the road. Come back the same way on the other side of the road. If One round Is not enough to smooth the surface and fill the ruts, make another round, or as many as are necessary to bring the de sired lesults. It does not matter so much what time you work the road although the most good is dons right after a rain, say as soon as the surface begins to Simple Road Drag for Farmers’ Uee. dry. The object Is to puddle the sur face. Roads that are treated in this manner for a season become almost Impervious to water. It must not be expected that the best results will be accomplished after one or two draggings. Tbe longer the road Is dragged the better It will get. The Ideal contour may not be ob tained until the fourth or fifth time over the road, although a difference can be noticed from the first In the condition of the road after rains. When the traveled part of the road la as good as can be made then you are ready to widen tbe highway. Do this by first plowing a shallow furrow down each side of the road just to the edge of the dragged portion, throwing the soil of course toward the center. Now pass along with the drag and spread this loose soil over the surface to the road and at the same time move It toward the crown. Continue in this way until the crown of the road Is as high as desired. The great advantage of building a road in this manner is that the surface is packed as the road is made. There are never any soft plaices to be found In such a road, and consequently ruts seldom form. BOOM STACKER IS DESCRIBED d*! C. c A boom stacker may be built any size to suit the height of the stack. The framework at the bottom is made of planks and may be 14 feet by 7 feet Strong braces run up to the smaller platform (1) with cross braces to make them secure. In the center of the platform there is a circular open ing for tbe mast 3 inches wider than the mast. This will allow the mast to lean to the further corner of the stack from the unloading point and SWEET CLOVER AS FERTILIZER Until Past Few Years Crop Had Been Classed as Troublesome Weed by Many—Now Soil Restorer. (By J. \V. GRIFFIN/) Sweet clover ts fast coming to the front as a soil restorer. Until the past few years it has been classed as a troublesome weed by many. I have been experimenting with different clovers for several years as to their value as cured hay. grazing and as a crop to turn under as green manure. As cured haj. sweot clover conu second to alfalfa Asa pasture sweet clover Is way ahead. On land that Is very thin and In which there fs very little humus. If sown to sweet clover and blue grass there will be a good stand of pasture the second season and If pastured lightly a heavy sod Is formed rapidly, then after the fourth season It may be pastured regularly and U will con tinue to improve The best kind of a drag is made as follows: Split a cedar post or the end of a telephone pole, at least ten iricher thick, so as to get two half logs about 7 or 8 feet long. This is better than to use a plank. Pick out the best half for the front of the drag and about four inches from the end that is Intended to travel in the cen ter of the road, bore a two-inch hole at right angles to the face of the slab. Bore another hole 22 inches from the other end and still another in the mid dle of the slab. To prepare the rear slab bore • two-inch hole 6 Inches from the ditch end, and the other two holes to corre spond with the two in the front slab. The slabs are then Joined together with stout stakes so that the two slabs are not closer than 30 inebes. Wedge the stakes in place, allowing the ends to protrude behind, to make handles for lifting the drag around. To complete the drag place a brace as shown in the drawing and tack a light platform on the top. The chain should be attached as shown. Don't build the drag too heavy; It can be weighted if it is too light Follow these directions in making and oper ating the drag and the results will be entirely satisfactory. The Delicious Sweet Pepper. Your garden ought to be well sup plied with that most palatable vege table, the sweet pepper. Many peo ple Imagine that all peppers are too hot to be eaten with comfort, but this Is a great mistake. The only hot portions are the seeds, and they can be removed before cooking. Green peppers are cooked In a va riety of ways, and there is no vege table that produces more table en joyment than these vegetables If a little study and care Is given to their growth and preparation for tbe table. Keeping Down Insect Increase. Remove and feed to the pigs *nd poultry all wormy vegetables and fruits from the garden and orchard to destroy-the Insects. Keying the grounds clean will aid In reducing insect pests. ut the same time be held by the guy ropes (h.h.) The mast or central pole may be 35 feet long and sets in a pivot In the lower platform. The boom (c) fs 24 1-2 feet long, and held In place to the mast by the semi-cir cular piece (e) and by an Iron rod that goes over the three-cornered piece (and.) The boom is raised as the stack Is built and its position when stack is finished is shown by dotted lines to (f.'

IN THE UP-TO-DATE FASHION Lecturer Fcund It No Trouble at All to Answe Question Meant to Embarrass Him. “Will you allow me to ask you a question?" interrupted a man in the audience. "Certainly, sir,” said the lecturer. "You have given us a lot of figures about Immigration, Increase of wealth, the growth of trusts and all that,” said the man. "Let’s see what you know about figures yourself. How do you find the greatest common di visor?” Slowly and deliberately the orator took a glass of water. Then he pointed his finger straight at the questioner. Lightning flashed from his eyes, and he replied, In a voice that made the gas Jet- quiver: “Advertise for It, you Ignoramus!” The audience cheered and yelled and stamped, and the wretched man who had asked the question crawled out of the hall a total wreck. DISFIGURED WITH CRUSTS “Some time ago I was taken with eczema from the top of my head to my waist. It began with scales on my body. I suffered untold itching and burning, and could not sleep. 1 was greatly disfigured with scales and crusts. My ears looked as If they had been most cut off with a razor, and my neck was perfectly raw. I suffered untold agony and pain. I tried two doctors who said I had eczema in its fullest stage, and that it could not be cured. I then tried other rem edies to no avail. At last, I tried a set of the genuine Cuticura Remedies, which cured me of eczema when all else had failed, therefore 1 cannot praise them too highly. “I suffered with eczema about ten months, but am now entirely cured, and I believe Cuticura Remedies are the best skin cure there is.” (Signed) Miss Mattie J. Shaffer, R. F. D. 1, Box 8, Dancy, Miss., Oct. 27, 1910. ”1 had suffered from eczema about four years when boils began to break out on different parts of my body. It started with a fine red rash. My back was affected first, when It also spread over my face. The Itching was almost unbearable at times. I tried different soaps and salves, but nothing seemed to help me until I began to use tbe Cuticura Soap and Ointment. One box of them cured me entirely. 1 recommended them to my sister for tor baby who was troubled with tooth eczema, and they completely cured her baby.” (Signed) Mrs. F. L. Marber ger, Drehersville, Pa., Sept. 6, 1910. Although Cuticura Soap and Oint ment are sold everywhere, a sample of each, with 32-page book, will be mailed free on application to ‘ Cuth cura,” Dept. 4 L, Boston. THERE ARE OTHERS.

The “boy scouts” movement has reached .the Malay peninsula, and Singapore is to have a fine organiza tion under the patronage of the gov ernor and chief Justice. It Is a good thing In many ways, aside from the military training, and bids fair tc become one of the permanent and most popular Institutions of the penin sula. All through the British colonies “boy scout" organizations are being formed. FALSE HUNGER A Symptom of Stomach Trouble Con rected by Good Food. There Is, with some forms of stom ach trouble, an abnormal craving for food which is frequently mistaken for a “good appetite.” A lady teacher writes from Carthage, Mo., to ex plain how with good food she dealt with this sort of hurtful hunger. “I have taught school for fifteen years, and up to nine years ago had good, average health. Nine years ago, however, my health began to fail, and continued to grow worse steadily, in spite of doctor’s prescriptions, and everything I could do. During all this time my appetite continued good, only the more I ate the more I wanted to eat —I was always hungry “The first symptoms of my break down were a distressing nervousness and a loss of flesh. The nervousness grew so bad that finally it amounted to actual prostration. Then came stom ach troubles, which were very painful, constipation which brought on piles, dyspepsia and severe nervous head aches. "The doctors seemed powerless to help me, said I was overworked, and at last urged me to* give up teach ing, if I wished to save my life. "But this I could not do. I kept on at it as well as T could, each day grow ing more wretched, my will-power alone keeping me up, till at last a good angel suggested that I try a diet of Grape-Nuts food, and from that day to this I have found It delicious always appetizing and satisfying. “I owe my restoration to health to Grape-Nuts. My weight hes returned and for more than two years I have been free from the nervousness, con stipation. piles, headaches, and all the ailments that used to punish me so, and have been able to work freely and easily."
