I said I’d let him know later, so that I could break it to him gently.” Exactly. So did I!” Rosamund, triu:: phant, scrambled upon Carolyn’s lifeboat. “Out I don’t intend to break It to him very gently after this!” ‘No ” Carolyn reflected grimly. ‘’We ought to make it just a little hard for him, don’t you think? We might even torture him a bit —if possible. The question is, how to do it.” She contemplated Rosamund, musing on revenge. ’’l don’t understand it at all!” Rosa mund complained. ‘‘Why in the world should a man act like that?” ”My dear Miss Gale, I don’t know. But I do know that it’s just like men. You never can tell what they’ll do. You think you know them —you think you’re perfectly safe—years go by and they seem perfectly human and ra tional—and then—piff! They explode. No woman yet has ever solved the mystery.” Rosamund's suavity was perfect as she looked Carolyn over pragmatical ly. “Funny you let Hall Bonistelle go far with you, wasn’t it! Say, he have shocked you awfully!” “Now, see here!” said Carolyn firm ly, putting her hand on Rosamund's arm. “There’s no use in our bicker ing like this. Don't you realize that we're in the same boat? Now, you say you don’t want to marry Hall. I’d like to be sure, though, before I go any ferther.” , you needn’t worry,” cried Rosa . -.unu, “you can have him, so far as I’m concerned!” Carolyn couldn’t keep from smiling now; Rosamund was too much for her. “Oh, thank you very much; but I have other plans for him. And we ought to try to find out what in the world he’s up to.” “Do you suppose it could possibly be a Joke?” Rosamund asked anx iously. “It looks to me,” said Carolyn, re flecting. “as if somebody had slipped a powder or something into his coffee. Or, it may be a disease. Incipient In sanity, perhaps. No doubt he's going about proposing to everyone today, and—” Carolyn paused. The door was open ing. Mrs. Royalton entered CHAPTER VIII. Mrs Royalton, in an almost too ♦ivid shade of purple, was, in contrast to the two rather excited women al r :ulv there, calm, cool and confident.

Mrs. Royalton, placid as a cow, eyed her for a moment, then remarked slowly, meditating, “You call him Hall, don t you! I hadn’t known you were so intimate.” “Oh, Lord, yes. I always call him Hall.” Carolyn was beginning to be amused. Rosamund tossed her head and crossed her feet, watching the new comer sharply. Well,” said Mrs. Royalton, primly ironical, “I’m delighted that you know him so well, my dear!” “Well, now I come to think of it, Rena, I don’t know that I do know him quite so well as I thought, after all.” She exchanged a smile with Rosamund, who laughed aloud, harsh ly, causing Mrs. Royalton to turn and stare at her. “I’m afraid I fail to see the joke,” she said haughtily. “But of course Hall Bonistelle isn’t at all the sort of man one sees through at a glance, you know'. He’s deep; a very subtle per son, in fact. However," she smiled complacently, “I flatter myself that I understand him a little better than I did.” Carolyn shot her a suspicious glance. “Why?” she demanded. “Made any recent discoveries?” Mrs. Royalton deliberately nodded up and down, and smiled cryptically. “Oh, I don’t know—l fancy he has something on his mind—in fact, I know he has —there’s a—well, a sort ©f crisis—yes, I suppose he would ap pear a little excited—but of course I really have no business discussing It.” “What in the world are you talking about, Rena?” Carolyn exclaiq^d. “Why, I’m talking about Hall Bonis telle, of course!” "Well, you’re not saying much.” "Never mind, Carolyft, dear, it isn’t because I haven’t anything to say! You don’t expect me to go about re peating things he has said to me in confidence, do you?” “Oh!” said Carolyn, narrowing her eyes, “then Hall has been confiding ig you, too, has he?” By this time Rosamund was hard on tfce scent, having almost caught up to Carolyn’s suspicions. She said noth ing, but her eyes were hot and shin ing, as she scrutinized Mrs. Royalton’s face. “See here,” said Carolyn, now thor oughly interested, “I don’t see w'hy I haven’t a right to know'. I’m a pretty good friend of Hall’s—you know that— and I think you ought to be able to trust me.” “Well, it isn’t only trusting you—” Mrs. Royalton looked significantly at Rosamund, sulkily listening. “Well, I declare!” said Carolyn calmly, “Rena Royalton, either you’re making an awful fool of yourself, or else Hall Bonistelle has actually—” She got no further. Flodie, head up, with a busy air, bustled into the room, carrying a handful of prints. She stopped suddenly, with a fine imitation of surprise, and gazed at Mrs. Royal ton. “Oh, Mrs. Royalton!” she exclaimed. “Why didn’t you let me know you were here? I’ve got your proofs all ready for you. I think they are splen did!” She handed them over, and ap proached Carolyn with two other proofs. "Here are yours, Miss Dallys. I’m sorry to have kept you waiting so long.” She returned to Mrs. Royalton. “Oh, how' I dread to look at that lady was saying. She was, nev ertheless, perusing them hungrily. Carolyn meanwhile had stridden across + he room to Rosamund, and the two girls conspired as Mrs. Royalton lost herself In her portraits. “Oh, I don’t like that one — . . . Really? . .♦. Why, I look a hundred years old! . . . There! That’s more like me. . . . "Which one do you like best. Miss Fisher? . . . No, do you? Why, I think it’s awful.

Say, where is Mr. Boni stelle, anyway?” There came a ring at the telephone. Flodie jumped to snatch up the re ceiver. “Hello! . . . Yes ... Why. what’s the matter? ... Oh, naturally . . . Wait just a minute, please!” Flodie stopped and held her hand over the transmitter. “Oh. Miss Dallys, would you and Miss Gale mind not talking quite loud for a minute? I can’t hear very well.” There was a long pause, and the three women, all studying Flodie’s face, saw a dozen different expressions pass over it in quick succession. Then she spoke again: “Really? Oh, you know, Mr. Bonistelle —well, personally, I loathe them . . . Oh, I don’t know, but a big diamond is so funny, some how .. . WTiat?” Then: “Oh, yes well, I know . . .

The increased cost of living, though the increase is by no means so great as we might have expected, lends an interest to a volume just issued by When will you be here? ... All right, good-by!” Mrs. Royalton and Rosamund still sat as if entranced, but Carolyn Dallys rose Impatiently now, and glanced about, as If In search of an excuse. The room was tensely charged with elec tricity. It was evident that in another minute the explosion must come. But, first, how to get rid of this important, busy little Miss Fisher? Flodie herself answered the un voiced question. as desir ous as any of them to bring the thing to a head? Yes; so she must fly.and leave the field of battle clear. Still smiling, she disappeared into the stockroom. She left the door ajar. Mrs. Royalton rose, with a self-con scious smile. “Well, Carolyn,” she said, “I suppose I’ll have to tell you, now. It is most unfortunate that Miss Fisher wasn’t more discreet in her conversa tion. But so long as she has let the cat out of the bag, I might as w'ell in form you that the ring she was talk ing to Hall about is for this finger!” She held up her left hand, her thumb pointing to her third finger. Carolyn, with a whoop, fell into Rosamund’s arms, and the two laughed until they cried. Mrs. Royalton stared as if they had suddenly gone mad. Then she ex claimed angrily, “I’d like to know what there is to laugh at! I don’t see any thing particularly amusing in the fact that I’m going to marry Hall Boni stelle!” “Oh, don’t you?” Carolyn gurgled. "Miss Gale, do you see anything funny in it?” “Funny! It’s a scream!” Rosamund shouted with mirth. “Who’ll be the next one?” “Oh, the more the merrier!” cried Carolyn. Rena Royalton drew herself up proudly. “I think you’re exceedingly impertinent!” she replied. Carolyn dried her eyes on a lace handkerchief. “Rena,” she said, still giggling, “I don’t know whether it’s too true to be funny, or too funny to be true. But you ought to be in on this joke, really, my dear. It will inter est you strangely!” “Well, I don’t call It a joke. It’s an outrage!” cried Rosamund. “Say, Miss Gale,” Carolyn turned confidentially, “d’you know, we ought really to form a society of the sur vivors, you know. Rena’s the oldest, and we’ll elect her president!” Mrs. Royalton stared from one to the other, her temper rising. Finally she remarked cuttingly, "I must say. "Hello! . . . Yes . . . Why, What's the Matter?” Carolyn, I always thought you were a lady!” and she walked swiftly toward the door. “Oh, don’t go yet!” Carolyn called out. “You’ve got a laugh coming to you, too, Rena. You haven’t heard our news, yet!" Mrs. Royalton trembled on the threshold. “Your news? What d’you mean?" , “Listen here,” said Rosamund, walk ing over to her coolly. “Hall Boni stelle proposed to Miss Dallys at ten thirty this morning and he proposed to me at a quarter to eleven. Now, what time did he propose to you?" Mrs. Royalton put out a hand trem bling with appeal. “Carolyn!” she im plored. Carolyn nodded unsympathetically. Mrs. Royalton dropped into a chair, speechless, and burst into tears. Caro lyn walked up to her and laid a hand on the heaving purple shoulder. “Brace up!” she said, “it won’t hurt but a minute! See here, Rena, were you carried off your feet by his wild wooing, or did you take notice of the time?” “Why—here this morning, Caro lyn,” Mrs. Royalton sobbed, “I left just beforj you came. It was—it was be fore that.” Her tears poured forth afresh. Carolyn nodded to Rosamund. “Make it ten-fifteen, then. I expect he pro poses every quarter of an hour, rain or shine.” “But I don’t see,” said Rosamund, "if she accepted him, why he ever pro posed to us!” (TO BE CONTINUED.) Red Sea Colored by Weeds. The drowning of Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea had nothing to do with its name. It takes this from a peculiar reddish color remarked at certain seasons of the year in parts of this sea, due to marine plants, or to reddish animalculae, called by sailors “whale feed,” which float on it like scum; or to the reefs of red coral which abound in many parts of it; or, possibly, to the fact that Its upper course was one of the bound aries of Edom, “the red.” No Biblical scholar of any repute has ever as serted that the sea took its name from the overthrow of Pharaoh. ry, which is more bulky to carry.

CONTAGIOUS ABORTION AMONG CATTLE - ■ .. —— Beef Cattle Grazing in Virginia. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) In economic importance contagious abortion in cattle stands next in im portance to tuberculosis; progress in stamping out the disease, however, has not been rapid nor great. The disease is caused by the Bacillus abor tus, and abortions occur compara tively infrequently from outside injury such as blows, horn thrusts, falls, etc., or the eating of spoiled feed or certain herbs, as has been the quite common belief. Efforts have been made to discover some medicinal agent which would cure the disease, and attempts have also been made to produce a serum, hut this work is still in the experimen tal stage and no reliable curative agent has yet been discovered. Our main reliance must still be placed upon the careful and repeated disin fection of premises and of animals, to gether with the separation of healthy from diseased animals. Disinfection of Premises. The thorough disinfection of prem ises is essential. This may be satis factorily accomplished by carrying out the following directions: 1. Sweep ceilings, side walls, stall partitions, floors and other surfaces until free from cobwebs and dust. 2. Remove all accumulations of filth by scraping, and if woodwork has be come decayed, porous or absorbent, it should be removed, burned and re placed with new material. 3. If floor is of earth, remove four inches from the surface, and in places where it shows staining with urine a sufficient depth should be replaced to expose fresh earth. All earth removed should be replaced with earth from an uncontaminated source, or anew floor of concrete may be laid, which is very durable and easily cleaned. 4. All refuse and material from stable and barnyard should be re moved to a place not accessible to cattle or hogs. The manure should be spread on fields and. turned under, while the wood should be burned. 5. The entire interior of the stable, especially the feeding troughs and drains, should be saturated by a dis infectant, as liquor cresolis composi tus (U. S. P.) or carbolic acid, six ounces to every gallon of water in each case. After this has dried, the stalls, walls and ceilings may be cov ered with whitewash (lime wash), to each gallon of which should be added four ounces of chloride of lime. The best method of applying the dis infectant and the lime wash is by means of a strong spray pump, such as those used by orchardists. This method is efficient in disinfec tion against most of the contagious and infectious diseases of animals, and should be applied immediately fol lowing any outbreak, and, as a matter of precaution it may be used once or twice .yearly. 6. It is important that arrangements be made to admit a plentiful supply of sunlight and fresh air by providing an ample number of windows, thereby eliminating dampness, stuffiness, bad odor and other insanitary conditions. Good drainage is also very necessary. If the use of liquor cresolis composi tus, carbolic acid or other coal-tar products is inadmissible because of the readiness with which their odor is imparted to milk and other dairy products, bichloride of mercury may be used in proportion of one to 800, or one pound of bichloride to 100 gallons of water. However, all portions of the stable soiled with manure should first be thoroughly scraped and cleaned, as the albumin contained in manure would otherwise greatly diminish the disinfecting power of the bichloride. Disinfection with this material should be supervised by a veterinarian or other person trained in the handling of poisonous drugs and chemicals, as the bichloride of mercury is a powerful corrosive poison. The mangers and feed boxes, after drying following spraying with this material, should be washed out with hot water, as cattle are especially susceptible to mercurial poisoning. The bichloride solution should be applied by means of a spray pump, as recommended for the liquor cresolis compositus. i In addition, the yards should be cleaned by removing all litter and ma nure and disinfected by sprinkling lib erally with a solution of copper sul phate, five ounces to a gallon of water. Milking stools and all other imple ments should also be thoroughly dis infected. Disinfection and Treatment of Ani mals. To prevent the bull from carrying the infection from a diseased cow to a healthy one, first clip the tuft of long hair from the opening of the sheath, then disinfect the penis and sheath with a solution of one-half per cent of liquor cresolis compositus, lvsol or trikresol, or 1 per cent creo lin or carbolic acid, or 1 to 1,000 po tassium permanganate in warm water. The only apparatus necessary is a soft rubber tube with a large funnel at tached to one end, or an ordinary foun tain syringe and tube would serve the purpose The tube should be inserted into the sheath and the foreskin held with the band to prevent the immedi ate escape of the fluid! Elevate the RINGING TREES NOT FAVORED Deleterious Effects of Treatment Ren der Operation Hazardous, Says New York Station. Ir regard to the advice sometimes given in regard to ‘Tinging” fruit trees to induce fruitfulness, the New York experiment station says: “The results obtained from our experiments are not favorable to ringing fruit trees as a general practice. Under some conditions, for a limited time, a more WAUSAU PILOT funnel as high as possible, and pour in the fluid until the preputial sack is filled. In addition to this, the hair of the belly and inner sides of the thigh should be sponged with the antiseptic. This disinfection should invariably precede and follow every service. An aborting cow should receive im mediate attention, and the animal should be removed to separate quar ters, where she can receive appropri ate treatment. The fetus, membranes and discharges are particularly dan gerous aud should be gathered up and destroyed immediately by burning or burial in some safe place, and this followed by thoroughly disinfecting the stall. The uterus should be Irri gated daily with one of the antisep tics mentioned for the bull, using the same apparatus, and irrigation should be continued until discharge ceases, in addition, the external genitals, root of tail, escutcheon, etc., should be sponged daily with a solution twice as strong as that used for irrigation, and this latter treatment should be given the nonaborters as well. Should the preliminary symptoms of abortion be detected, the animal should be re moved from the herd and treated as above. After abortion, breeding should not again be attempted within two months, or until the discharge shall have ceased, as the uterus would not be normal and the animal would either not conceive or would abort again in a short time. Great care should be used in pur chasing cattle, and cows not known to be free from the disease should be kept in separate quarters until this point is determined. If a herd bull is not kept, then great care should be exercised to know that the animal used is free of disease and to see that he is properly treated both before and after service. Whenever it becomes necessary to separate diseased and healthy ani mals, it is especially important that different attendants and utensils be provided for the two groups. It is manifestly impossible to go into details within the scope of a short article, and it is therefore suggested that a competent veterinarian be em ployed to supervise disinfection of premises and advise as to the meth ods of treatment. CLEANLINESS IN THE DAIRY Most Common Source of Filth Is Cow at Milking Time—Avoid Practice of Wetting Hands. The hands should never be wet when milking. Some milkers follow the practice of wetting their hands by dipping them into the milk. This is a filthy habit and introduces a great many bacteria into the milk. These bacteria have their effect, first, upon the flavor of the milk and cream, and later upon the butter. The most common source of filth in milk is the cow at milking time. If she has a cake of manure on her side, it is almost impossible to milk her without getting some of the manure in the milk. With this filth is not only introduced the bad flavor of the ma nure itself, but also innumerable bac teria which develop when they are in the milk at a favorable temperature very rapidly and bring about flavors in the milk similar to the flavor of the filth with which they were introduced. —ldaho Experiment Station, Bulletin No. 73. PROTECTION FOR THE GRAPES Paper Bag Placed Over Fruit Will Keep Away Insects and Birds— Insures Choice Clusters. Place a paper bag over each bunch of grapes when the fruit is the size of small shot. This protects the grapes from insect and bird injury, and insures extra choice clusters. Fasten the mouth of the bag closely about each stem with a wire or string. Seedsmen sell wired bags for this pur pose. One year one man's bunches of grapes were many of them so large that they eventually burst two-pound bags; since then he has used three pound bags; they cost about 35 cents per 100 and may be bought at any seed store. This bagging method is only practi cable in a small way; large growers depend upon spraying to produce fine clusters. Care for Currant Bushes. Currant bushes should be dusted with white hellebore or paris green, or sprayed with a decoction of helle bore at the first appearance of the currant worms. Thorough cultivation should be practiced at all times. Makes Gardening Easier. A good hand cultivator makes gar dening easier. With proper attach ments, furrows may be opened, seed covered and weeds killed. Receive Thanks of Horse. Remove the check reins, and re ceive the thanks of your horses. favorable outcome might be expected. “Hardy, vigorous, young apple trees may readily undergo a single ringing and be benefited thereby, but subse quent operations are injurious.
