I& ®!7 pEIICMOmOir/iK) MFE Third Degree CHARLES KLEIN Y y ARTHUR 3 HORNBLOW Y ILLUSTRATIONS BY RAY WALTERS COPYRIGHT, 1909, BY G.W. DILLINGHAM COMPAMY 13 ' ‘ SYNOPSIS. Howard Jeffries, banker’s son, under the evil Influence of Robert Underwood, fellow-student at Yale, leads a life of dis sipation, marries the daughter of a gam bler who died in prison, and is disowned by his father. He Is out of work and In desperate straits. Underwood, who had once been engaged to Howard’s step mother, Alicia, Is apparently In prosper ous circumstances. Taking advantage of his Intimacy with Alicia, he becomes a sort of social highwayman. Discovering his true character, Alicia denies him the house. He sends her a note threatening suicide. Art dealers for whom he acted as commissioner, demand an accounting. He cannot make good. Howard calls at his apartments In an intcjclcated condi tion to request a loan of $2,000 to enable him to take up a business proposition. Underwood tells him he Is In debt up to his eyes. Howard drinks himself Into a maudlin condition, and goes to sleep on a divan. A caller Is announced and Under wood draws a screen around the drunken sleeper. Alicia enters. She demands a promise from Underwood that he will not take his life. He refuses unless she will renew her patronage. This she refuses, and takes her leave. Underwood kills himself. The report of the pistol awa kens Howard. He finds Underwood dead. Realizing his predicament ho attempts to fleo and is met by Underwood's valet. Howard Is turned over to the poller Capt. Clinton, notorious for his brut'll treatment of prisoners, puts Howard through the third degree, and finally gets an alleged confession from the harassed man. Annie. Howard’s wife, declares her belief In her husband's innocence. CHAPTER Xl.—Continued. “Not this lady,” said the boy. “The other lady. I think she said Jeffries, or Jenkins, or something liko that.” The captain waved his hand toward the door. “That's all right—go. We'll find her ail right” The boy went out and the captain turned round to Annie. “It’ll be rather a pity If it isn’t you.” he said with a suggestive smile. “How so?” she demanded. The captain laughed. “Well, you see, a woman always gets the Jury mixed up. Nothing fools a man like a pretty face, and 12 times 1 is 12. You tee if they quarreled about you—your husband would stand some chance.” Patronizingly he added, “Come, Mrs. Jeffries, you'd bet ter tell the truth and I can advise you who to go to.” Annie drew herself up. and with dignity said: “Thanks, I'm going to the best law yer I can get Not one of those court room politicians recommended by a police captain. I am going to Richard Brewster. He’s the man. He'll soon get my husband out of the Tombs. ’ Reflectively she added: “If my father had had Judge Brewster to defend him instead of a legal shark, he’d never have been railroaded to Jail. He'd be alive to-day ” Capt. Clinton guffawed loudly. The Idea of ex-Judge Brewster taking the case seemed to amuse h*m hugely. “B’.ewster?” he laughed boisterous ly. "You’d never be able to get Brewster, Firstly, he's too expensive. Secondly, he's old man Jeffries' law yer. He wouldn’t touch your case with a ten-foot pole. Besides,” he added in a tone of contempt. ’ Brew ster s no good in a case of this kind. He's a constitution lawyer—one of them international fellers. He don't know nothing—" “He's the only lawyer 1 want,” she retorted determinedly. Then she went on: 'Howard s folks must come to hts rescue. They must stand by him— they must —” The captain grinned. “From what 1 hear,” he said, “old man Jeffries won't raise a finger to save his scapegrace son from going to the chair. He's don* with him for good and ail." Chuckling aloud and talking to him self rather than to his vis-a-vis, he muttered: “That alone will convince the Jury. They II argue that the boy can't be much good if his own go back on him.” Annie's eye flashed. "Precisely!” she exclaimed. “But his own won't go back on him. I'll see to it that they don't" Rising and turning toward the door, she asked: Prayers Never Passed Over First Thought in the Mind of Moham medan Is His Duty of Devotion to Allah. “And while we three white men of a Christian race stuffed ourselves without preliminary or postprandial grace, and our shem'. porters grace lessiy gorgeo ih-Anelves like beasts, scarce SO feet frou? our table stood the noble tors oi old Regal and the “Have you anything more to say to me, captain?” “No,” replied the captain hesitat ingly. “You can go. Of course you'll be called later for the trial. You can see your husband in the Tombs when you wish.” No man is so hard that he has net a soft spot somewhere. At heart Capt. Clinton was not an unkind man. Long service in the police force and a mistaken notion of the proper method of procedure in treating his prisoners had hardened him and made him brutal. Secretly he felt sorry for this plucky, energetic little woman who had such unbounded faith in her good-for-nothing husband, and was ready to fight all alone in his defense. Eyeing her with renewed interest, he demanded: “What are you going to do now?” Annie reached the door, and draw ing herself up to her full height, turned and said: “I'm going to undo all you have done, Capt. Clinton. Pm going to free my husband and prove his innocence before the whole world. I don’t know how I’m going to do it, but I'll do it I'll fight you, captain, to the last ditch, and I’ll rescue my poor husband from your clutches If it takes everything I possess in the world.” Quickly she opened the door and disappeared. CHAPTER XII. The American dearly loves a sen sation, and the bigger and more blood curdling it is the better. Nothing is more gratifying on arising In the morning and sitting down to partake of a daintily served breakfast than to glance hurriedly over the front page of one's favorite newspaper and see it covered with startling headlines. It matters little what has happened dur ing the night to shock the community, so long as It satisfies one's appetite for sensational news. It can be a fatal conflagration, a fearful railroad wreck, a gigantic bank robbery, a hor rible murder, or even a scandalous divorce case. All one asks is that It be something big. with column after column of harrowing details. The newspapers are fully alive to what Is expected of them, but it is not always easy to supply the demand. There are times when the metropolis lan guishes for news of any description. There are no disastrous fires, trains run without mishap, burglars go on a vacation, society leaders act with de corum—in a word the city is deadly dull. Further consideration of the tariff remains the most thrilling topic the newspapers can find to write about. The murder at the aristocratic As truria, therefore, was hailed by the editors as an unmixed Journalistic blessing, and they proceeded to play j it up for all it was worth. All the features of a first-class sensation were present. The victim, Robert Under wood, was well known in society and a prominent art connoisseur. The place where the crime was committed was one of the most fashionable of New York's hostelries. The presumed assassin was a college man and the son of one of the most wealthy and influential of New York’s citizens. rrue, this Howard Jeffries, the son. was a black sheep. He had been mixed up In all kinds of scandals be fore. His own father had turned him out of doors, and he was married to a woman whose father died in prison. Could a better combination of cir cumstances for a newspaper be con ceived? The crime was discovered too late for the morning papers to make mention of It. but the afternoon papers fired a broadside that shook the town. All the eventng papers had | big scare heads stretching across the 1 entire front page, with pictures of the principals involved and long inter views with the coroner and Capt. Clinton. There seemed to be no doubt that the police had arrested the right snare ascetic-faced Awaia, musically intoning their evening prayer to Al lah, oblivious to rT about as if alone in a monastic cell. It was a majestic rebuke to us, a weird mystery to the shenxl. whose voices were always low ered when the Somats began to pray, and wbo sat contemplating them in wild-eyed wonder to the end of each prayer, awed, almost silent—aa were we ourselves silent oat of the sheer man. and in all quarters oi the city there was universal sympathy for Mr. Howard Jeffries, Sr. It was terrible to think that this splendid, upright man, whose whole career was without a single stain, who had served his country gallantly through the civil w-ar, should have such disgrace brought upon him in his old age Everything pointed to a speedy trial and quick conviction. Public indigna tion was aroused almost to a frenzy, and a loud clamor went up against the law’s delay. Too many crimes of this nature, screamed the yellow press, had been allowed to sully the good name of the city. A fearful ex ample must be made, no matter what the standirg ant', influence of the pris oner’s fam.ly. Thus goaded on, the courts acted with promptness. Taken before a magistrate, Howard was at once committed to the Tombs to await trial, and the district attorney set to work impaneling a jury. Justice, he promised, would be swiftly done. One newspaper stated positively that the family would not interfere, but would abandon the scapegrace son to bis richly deserved fate. Judge Brewster, the famous lawyer, it was said, had al ready been approached by the prison er’s wife, but had declined to take the case. Banker Jeffries also was quoted as saying that the man under arrest was no longer a son of his. As one paper pointed out, it seemed a farce and a waste of money to have any trial at all. The assassin had not only been caught red-handed, but had actually confessed. Why waste time over a trial? True, one paper timidly suggested that it might have been a case of suicide. Robert Underwood’s financial affairs, it went on to say. were in a critical condition, and the theory of suicide was borne out to some extent by an Interview with Dr. Bernstein, professor of psychology at one of the universities, who stated that he was by no means convinced of the prisoner’s guilt, and hinted that the alleged confession might have been forced from him by the police, while in a hypnotic state. This the ory, belittling as it did their pet sen sation. did not suit the policy of the yellow press, so the learned profes sor at once became the target for edi torial attack. The sensation grew in importance as the day for the trial approached All New York was agog with excite ment. The handsome Jeffries man sion on Riverside drive was besieged by callers. The guides on the sight seeing coaches shouted through their megaphones: “That’s the house where the mur derer of Robert Underwood lived.” The immediate vicinity of the house the day that the crime was made pub lic was thronged with curious peo ple. The blinds of the house were drawn down as if to shield the in mates from observation, but there were several cabs in front of the main entrance and passers by stopped on the sidewalk, pointing at the house. A number of newspaper men stood in a group, gathering fresh material for the next edition. A reporter ap proached rapidly from Broadway and joined his colleagues. “Well, boys,” he said cheerily. “Any thing doing? Say, my paper is going to have a bully story to-morrow! Com plete account by Underwood’s valet. He tells how he caught the murderer just as he was escaping from the apartment. We’ll have pictures and everything. It’s fine. Anything do ing here?” he demanded. “Naw,” grunted the others in dis gruntled tones. “We saw the butler,” said one re porter, "and tried to get a story from him, but he flatly refused to talk. All he would say was that Howard Jef fries was nothing to the family, that his father didn’t care a straw what became of him.” ‘That’s pretty tough!” exclaimed another reporter. “He’s his son, aft er all.” "Oh, you don’t know old Jeffries,” chimed in a third. “When once he makes up his mind you might as well try to move a house.” The afternoon was getting on; If their papers were to print anything more that day they must hasten down town. “Let’s make one more attempt to get a talk out of the old man,” sug gested one enterprising scribe. “All right," cried the others In chorus. “You go ahead. We’ll fol low in a body and back you up.” Passing through the front gate, they rang the bell, and after a brief par ley were admitted to the house. They had hardly disappeared when a cab drove hurriedly up and stopped at the curb. A young woman, heavily veiled, descended, paid the driver, and walked quickly through the gates toward the house. Annie tried to feel brave, but her heart misgave her when she saw this splendid home with all its evidence of Coin Something ot a Freak Atlantan the Possessor of Silver Dol lar with Two Heads—lts History. Hansel W. Compton has Just re turned from New Orleans, La., where he went upon a business trip, bring ing with him the only genuine silver dollar with heads stamped on both sides ever seen in Atlanta. And there by hangs a tale, relates the Atlantic Constitution. Mr. Compton got this silver dollar in change and did not notice the un usual fact about it at the time Some time later he was matching a friend for oar fare, happening to use this silver dollar, when he noticed that the coin fell ‘heads’ every time. He looked closer and saw that there was a head on each side of the dollar. Un der one head were the figures ‘‘1906,“ the date of the initial stamping, and under the other “1909,” the date of the second stamping. He showed it to several New Or- respect for a religion which can give men such perfect self-con.i -hat no danger daunts them and no hardship or suffering wrings from them a plaint. “Five times a day do they so pray —at dawn, at high noon, at four, at sunset and before retiring—nor can anything interfere to delay these prayers, not even hungry masters. And before addressing Allah, mouth, face and hands are carefully washed, the best turban wound about the head, the freshest garments donned, the •ealt&. culture and refinement. It was the first time she had ever entered its gates, although, in a rueasiuc. she was entitled to look upon it <Vi her own home. Perhaps never much as now she realized what :i deep gulf lay between her husband's family and herself. This was a wor'd she had never known—a world of opulence and luxury. She did not know how she had summoned up courage enough to come Yet there was no time to be lost. Immediate action was neces sary. Howard must have the best lawyers that money could procure. Judge Brewster had been deaf to her entreaties. He had declined to take the case. She had no money. How ard's father must come to his assist ance. She would plead with him and insist that it was his duty to stand by his son. She wondered how he would receive her. if he would put her out or be rude to her. He might tell the servants to shut the door In her face. Timidly she rang the bell. The butler opened the door, and sum moning up all her courage, she asked: “Is Mr. Jeffries in?” To her utter amazement the butler offered no objection to her entering. Mistaking her for a woman reporter, several of w’hom had already called that morning, he said: “Go right in the library, madam: the other newspaper folk are there.’’ She passed through the splendid re ception hall, marveling inwardly at the beautiful statuary and pictures, no little intimidated at finding her self amid such splendid surroundings. On the left there was a door draped with handsome tapestry. “Right in there, miss,” said the butler. She went In, and found herself in a room of noble proportions, the walls of which were lined with bookshelves filled with tomes in rich bindings. The light that entered through the stained glass windows cast a subdued half light, wdrm and rich in color, on the crimson plush furnishings. Near the heavy flat desk in the center of the room a tall, distinguished man was standing listening deprecatingly to the half dozen reporters who were bombarding him with questions. As Annie entered the room she caught the words of his reply: “The young man who has inherited my name has chosen his own path in life. lam grieved to say that his con duct at college, his marriage, has completely separated him from his family, and I have quite made up my mind that in no way or manner can his family become identified with any steps he may take to escape the pen alty of his mad act. I am his father, and I suppose, under the circum stances, I ought to say something. But I have decided not to. I don’t wish to give the American public any ex cuse to think that I am palliating or condoning his crime. Gentlemen, I wish you good-day.” Annie, who had been listening in tently, at t nee saw her opportunity. Mr. Jeffries had taken no notice of her presence, believing her to be a newspaper writer like the others. As the reporters took their departure and filed out of the room, she re mained behind. As the last one disap peared she turned to the banker and said: “May I speak to you a moment?" He turned quickly and looked at her In surprise. For the first time he was conscious of her presence. Bow ing courteously, he shook his head: “I am afraid I can do nothing for you madam —as I've just explained to your confreres of the press.” Annie looked up at him, and said boldly: “I am not a reporter, Mr. Jeffries. I am your son’s wife.” The banker started back in amaze ment. This woman, whom he had taken for a newspaper reporter, was an interloper, an imposter, the very last woman in the world whom he would have permitted to be admitted to his house. He considered that she, as much as anybody else, had con tributed to his son’s ruin. Yet what could he do? She was there, and he was too much of a gentleman to have her turned out bodily. Wondering at his silence, she repeated softly: “I’m your son’s wife, Mr. Jeffries.” The banker looked at her a mo ment, as if taking her in from head to foot. Then he said coldly: “Madam, I have no son.” He hesi tated, and added: “I don't recognize—” She looked at him pleadingly. “But I want to speak to you, sir.” Mr. Jeffries shook his head, and moved toward the door. “I repeat, I have nothing to say.” Annie planted herself directly in his path. He could not reach the door unless he removed her forcibly. “Mr. Jeffries," she said earnestly, "please don’t refuse to hear me— please—” (TO BE CONTINUED.) leans men, who offered him various premiums the highest being $lO, all of which he refused. The story in connection with this coin is as follows: An employe in the New Orleans mint, whose duty it was to run the silver coin through the dies to have the head stamped up on it substituted a current silver dol lar for the coin immediately after the head had been stamped upon It, with the other side unstamped and perfectly slick. This was in 1905. Three years later he ran the coin through the stamper for the reverse side, impressing another head and 1909 upon it. The fact that a coin had been put in. at the first instance, to replace the half-coined dollar, pre vented detection. In this manner, it is explained, the silver dollar came t have its two heads.

There are other things by which we may Judge as to the class in which a fanner belongs. If the farm dwellings and outbuildings are neatly painted, and the fences and gates in good re pair, you will not see haystacks or straw-piles standing crut all winter, or see this farmer husking out corn in April so as to get it out of the way for another crop. It is the little things that make farming pay. and the little things make the losing game, too. NEW FRAME FOR MILK PAILS Wire Structure Fits Around Recep tacle and Protects It From Dirt at Bottom—General Design. With the improvement in farming and dairy methods in general, and the demand for pure milk in particular, comes the milk pail frame, designed by an lowa man. This frame cannot be considered a necessary article by any stretch of the imagination, but a great many things are being used by the dairyman now that have decided merit without being necessities. The ■ New Frame for Milk Pail. illustration shows the general design of the frame, which has a pan in the bottom on which the pail rests. Two projectirg U-shaped portions of the upper ring of the device fit over two bails at the top of the bucket. When the bails are under the ring the frame is turned a few inches to afford them a purchase and prevent their slipping out again, and the dairyman thus has his pail encased in a framework that extends on all sides and protects it from dirt at the bottom. Keeping Milk Utensils Clean. Discard the dishcloth and the dish towel when the milk utensils are be ing washed. Wash them in warm wa ter first, with plenty of some washing compound, and use a brush to do the work, but never a rag. Get into every part of them, after which rinse off vrith clean warm water, and then eith er pet them in boiling water or pour boiling water over ih“m. Stand the parts up so they will drain and use no cloth to wipe them. The hot surface will dry them quickly, and they will be clean. Leave the parts in a sun shiny place if possible. The Value of the Separator. The value of the cream separator Is based on the amount it saves out of the loss of the cream that is common under the old or primitive methods. Usually there is a loss of from 25 to 60 per cent, of the cream. The cream separator saves this loss, and, com puting that under the average price of butter fat the cream separator will save the farmer $lO or more a cow per year, ro we see that If the farm er milks five or six cows he saves enough in one year to buy a cream separator above the old methods. Dried Beet Pulp for Cows. That dried beet pulp Is a better l'"°.d for dairy cows than corn silage was demonstrated by the New Jersey ex periment station. It found that the cows ted on beet pulp produced ten oer cent, more milk than when fed on a corn silage ration and four per cent, more milk than on a hominy ration. Use of Separators.

CLOVER HAY FOR DAIRY COWS How to Cure It to Make Beat Fodder —Cut When Dew 1; Cif, Soon as Well Wilted. Clover for milk cows should be cut | when part of the heads commence to I turn brown; if cut too early there is a ' waste of substance, and If cut when i the heads are dead ripe, the leaves have fallen off in the curing and the stalks are hard and woody. The char acter of the weather should be studied. Cut when the dew la off, as soon aa well wilted. It should be shaken out and tunned before dew falls. The next day rake Into small windrows, and after the field is raked over, com mence at the beginning and double the rows, and by turning the hay with the rake two or three times, exposing the green bunches to the sun and air, the sap will evaporate by the Middle of the afternoon, when the hay may be bunched and put up Into medium sized cocks. If the weather is dear, cocking will not be necessary The next morning haul in; spread one peck of coarse salt upon each load. If the bottom of bunches should be damp turn the bunches over an hour before banting. The nicest way to cure clover hay to to put it up in good-sized cocks, cap it and let it remain In the cock until well cured, when It should be hauled m and placed in a portion of the mow for spring feeding. Clover hay cured In the cock is much more valuable than sun-dried hay. Cqw* fed with this quality of hay will not only give a large quality of milk, but the milk will be rich and well flavored. If the hay feels heavy in handling, a layer of old hay or straw should be spread over each load to absorb the moisture. Green hay should not be put into the mow, as it la sure to heat, and may cause the lost of the barn.

Profits in dairying do not depend so much on the number of cows kept, but upon the kind. This fact is being real ized more and more as the dairy in dustry increases. One way to increase the acreage of a , f arm is to increase the fertility of the soil of the farm. Similarly one way to increase a dairy herd Is to increase the cows' produc ing potoer. Butter Must Go Higher. Dairying has become one of the most important branches of farm in dustry. Do not fear tfcxt the present high prices will not continue, for the number of milk cows and the amount of butter made does not keep pace with the increase of population the country over. Butter must go high er rather than lower under present conditions. Weed Out Unprofitable Cows. Have you commenced weeding out your unprofitable cows? This is the most money-making feature in the dairy business. The present price of land, labor, feed, and dairy products make it imperative that every cow in our herds should be steady, reliable income producers. Keep Cows Clean. Keep the flanks and udders of the cows clipped. It is much easier than to clean the parts before milking It helps to keep dirt out of the milk To clip the cows all over once or twice a year will do them good. It is best to test the milk for but ter fat once each month. Don’t mix the morning and night milk unless both are quite cool. There is no liquid that will absorb odors more quickly than warm milk. The animal that pays the best is bound to be in evidence as dairymen become better informed. It is a mistake to suppose that a good cow of inferior breeding is quail | fled to drop a good calf. Clover is one of the best forage crops for cows and is one of the best crops a dairyman can put in. Before selecting a pure bred sire to head the herd of cows, it is necessary to canvass the situation thoroughly In building up a dairy herd from i common stock, much time will ire | sa red if the best cows are selected to i form the breeding herd There are few cows which will not stand more quietly during the milk ing process if they have nothing else to attract their attention Milk hat is properly pasteurized ! and then kept at a low temperature * will keep much longer, as a rule, than j that which is not so treated.
