A number ot men and women had
asked Mrs Susa Young Gates to take
them through the residence ot her
friend Irs A V McCune sr They

of the place under conditions more

There will be no attempt here to give
detailed description ot the Interior As
an object ot Interest It Is worthy more
than a lImited article And there are
i other considerations which make the
descrJbing almost an Invasion of that
privacy which Is aoredly accorded every
t And yet a home In whIch much money
has been expended with perfect taste a
home In whIch the Tight use ot fortune
ls evident Itself constitutes an invita
tion One cannot see the massive woods
ot the dIning room the great rug that
expresses the perfection ot Asias handi
craft the glass and silver that a prInce
mIght prlzcon cannot look indiffer
ently on these things
One of the marvels ot the establish
ment Is Its varlpty In one place the
atmosphere Is wholly old EnglIsh In
another It Is the France ot the Grand
Monarch In another It Is the slender

cult But In each case every article
In the room from the satin tapestry on
the walls to the marvelous frescoes of
the ceilingaU are in perfect accord
rhe atmosphere Is maIntained per
1ctly1n tone In color in material
I Such a home is a dIstinct asset of the
community An investment so large
and at the same time so tastefully ac
Iomplsshpd Is a standard of measure
Infnt which cannot be forgotten There
are rooms in which one catches the
spirit of the big manhood which made
I thl adornments possible There are
thers Into which one does not penetrate
i rooms in which the night sllences
I bring dftp rommunlngs and the dawns

love and the labor the strength and the
flower to make this testimony to the

Let no man say a Catholic priest has
110 sense ot humor Father Phelan ed
Itor of the Western Watchman refutes
the thought In a recent article propos
Ing yates for babies
Not that he would requIre the babIes
tu vote but that he would give to each
family a yoUng strength based on the
number of children In the household
For example It there were ten children
l1e would allow the family twelve votes
one for the father one for the mother
and ten for the ten children It the
parents agreed politically he would
let the father cast the whole twelve
ballots If they did not agree he would
have the man vote for himself and for
all ot the boys and the mother vote for
herself and all her girls
The eminent churchman adds that
one effect would be to dIsfranchise ut
terly the childless and screeching sisterhood
rhood Which is a vIew with some
thing to commend It
There is reason for the franchise
based on property sInce the man with
a home has a definite stake In the com
monwealth And there is reason for the
manhood suffrage
Why not reason for that better Inter

defects in the monetary system ot our

they are not yet arrived at perfect

they are looking for the best plan
Tlat Is the case with thoughtful men
everywhere In the nation And they
know Senator Aldrich Is a very capable

According to the Craftsmanone ot
the best monthly publications men of
fortune and good sensethe things
often go togetherhave fallen into the
habit ot making pieces of furniture for
their own rOQmlt
The have their banks or their stores
or their offices in the daytime but In
share moments they have learned the
handling of tools the qualIty of wood
or metal and the ability to product
things of use and beauty for the on
dchment ot their homes and the In
horitance of theIr children
Nothing could bo more desirable than
a chair or case or table wrought out
by the hand ot one who worked simply
because he loved the workand knew
the high value ot It
It is to be hoped the Craftsman is
right In the belief that the cult will
have a wide Influence The tendency
of the past centuries has been to make
labors disliked Most boys know no
higher aspiration than to make a lot
of money without working hard for it
And yet there Is not in aU the world so
sure a road to happiness as that whIch
leads through labor ot the hands and
the feet and the whole devoted body
It is a thIng to be encouraged too be
cause nothing can so enrich a home as

John NIelsen writing in the Vernal
Express unconsciously adds something
to the argument In favor ot a law for
the destruction ot notlous weeds In
Utahwlld oats being ne ot the we lIs
most to be legislated nglnst
Mr Nielsen points out that he has
tried to eradicate the wild oats and
that either seed from less careful farm
ers get into his land or the seed he
buys contains the undesired element
He realizes = the effect Is to lower the
grade of his grain and the consequent
Injury to the whole product of the state
Most or the counties In Utah are agri
cultural in their chlefest Interest It
will be strange If the people do not send
their order to the legIslature next taU
and secure a law that will help them so
far as the destruction or the noxIous
weeds and injurious growths can effect
that end

And the various shapes she scanned
Before she discovered the mansion where
She purchased this recherche affair
You probably understand
Now she lived In a suite oh tres petite

With everything up to date and neat
Electric lighting and steam for heat
But the width of the hall was scant two
We know them you and r
Oh the toll it cost and the sleep she lost
And the wonderful schemes she planned
To get that Paris creation in
To her tiny flat was a crying sin
And if I should tell you you wouldnt

Sufficient to say that being a wo

And when he came home he brard her

And he found hr wedged In the narrow
Between the hat and the plastery wall
And she couldnt stand and she couldnt
And she COllldn creep and she couldnt
And she lookedwell really not at all

And lt wasnt the shame and It wasnt
the pain
That burnt like a white hot brand
Twas the language that her husband

You wouldnt understand
Did the girl discard that vampire hat
Not on your royal life
She bought another worse than that
And added a foot to the height or her rat

A Hutchinson girl declares this story
Is true She was visiting at a small Kan

had been to Topeka so she had heard
She had sd ma acqaintances In Topeka

How did you like Topeka
The young fellow blushed and looked
down before he murmured
Oh pretty well
Do you know many people there she
continued trying to get him Interested
and attributing his reticence to bashful
ness Why not many he said tugging at
his collar as it It were strangling him
1 suppose you went to the park when
you were there she asked
No he replied I did not attend any
of the affairs at the park
She talked about other things and
later when nn opportunity came asked
the hostess why that boy had been so
reticent about talking about Topeka The
hostess throw up her hands
We simply had to Invite him she
replied He belongs to a good family
As a matter ot fact he has just returned

Why Chiropractic Cures
Are Certain
rU The prInciple upon which Chiropractic I
work Is that of adjusting the spine so
S S that the nerves which pass through the
spinal column on their way to the sepa i
rate parts of the body may be free from
all Impingements and be able to prop
aly perform their duties It is a well
known fact that separate nerves control
the stomach the kidneys the liver and
2 dhCr organs of the body If these nerves
are pinched while passing along the
spnal column it Is only natural that the
r 1 organ controlled by that nerve will be
affected This explains why medicines

I was almost afraid I shouldnt catch
you up said Burskl
I though you couldnt get away I
Oh I managed jt all right I thought
It would be 1 pity for you to miss any
thing I could show you on your last day
In the city and such a day so I hur
ried after you Nearly lost you In that
crowd though Going to the Church
ot St Paul are you Thatll make a
capital starting point Jump In I
But It was not In my program to take
him to meet Volna No I think as
youre with me we shall see more if we
walk I replied and I tossed the driver
a rouble and dismissed him
Burskl laughed That Illustrates one
ot my pet theories he said that you
English are sometimes a most change
able and impulsive people
I am not Interest In your theories
about my countrymen
Oh I wont force them on you I
hate a man who is always cramming
his views down your throat Hes a
borethe poorest sort of creature In the
world Which way shall we walk I
AU ways are the same to me
Let us stroll on then It will take
us to the Church of St Paul
I was so angry so perplexed how to
shake him off and at the same time so
anxious to get to Volna that I would
not trust myself to speak Every min
ute ot delay Increased the risk that she
mIght tire of waltfngor jump to the
conclusIon that I could not keep the ap
poIntmentand go back to the house
where I knew Bremenhofs men might
already be waiting for lies
Burski Retell as though he saw noth
ing of my uneasiness He chatted away
quite unconcernedly calling my atten
tion now to a church and agaIn to some
public buIlding and accepting my
monosyllabic surly replies with unruf
fled complacency
Once chance offered of getting away
A great crowd of strikers came march
Ing past filling the roadway and as
the accompanying mob of stragglefs
surged on to the footpath I was about
to plunge into the midst of their ranks
when he slipped his arm Into mine and
drew me back Into a doorway
For heavens sake be careful IH
cried The scum of the city Is there
and your very life might be In danger
It appeared as though he might well
be right but I could have cursed him
for his forethought all the sne
The strikers themselves looked for
midable enough There were several
hundred of them sternfaced men all I
resolute silent determined dogged l
though moved by a common deep set I
purpose they maintaIned a rough order
of march leaders at the head and on
the flank ot each band I
The mob hanging on their skirts were I
of a very different class however ill
clad dirty unkempt tatterdemalions
the dregs of the alleys and byways f
the city ripe for any mIschief or devil
ment EvIl men and worse women
they shuffled and scrambled and bus
tied along wlUt occasional cheers for
the strikers hoarse cries anc oaths to
one another and execrations for the
government towsied disorderly mb
tile unquestionably dangerous anI
highcharged with thoughts and hopes
of violence It would not be their fault
It tho day ended without open resist
ance looting and bloodshed
For many minutes precious to me
they fllled the streets and made pro
gress impossible and before they had
passed a clock near by struck 12
An hour past the time nt which I
was to have met Volna She would
surely have given me up and in all
probability had already gone back to
the house to whIch In my fatous con
fidence In my own cleverness 1 ha
been reckless enouGh to send Bremen
Where have the strikers com
from I asked Burskl as a sudden
thought chilled me
From where we are goIng the
square in front of the Church of St
Paul They have an ugly look and we
shall have Petersburg over again iC
they dont shake themselves free from
the rabble And It may be even worse
here for the fraternity have brought In
arms and are prepared to resist There
will be fighting before night
Spoken very much hike a police
agent that I exclaimed
He shrugged his shoulders One gets
the habit I suppose I was a police
agent long before I joined the fraterni
ty and one judges of things from that
standpoInt at times See they have
swept the square clear he added as
we reached the church
And at this point well part com
pany please
He assumed great surprise Part
company Why we have seen scarcely
anything yet
I mean what I flay
He paused and then hIs manner
changed I am really sorry for this
Mr Anstruther
Sorry for what
Of course I have seen that r am not
wanted but the fact Is I myself am
being watched I am compelled to keep
with you for an hour or so
You suggested just now that you
came because I had asked you I
rapped back
Well you did ask me dIdl1t you
And you put It 50 naturally that I real
ly thought you were In earnest
I wasnt I dont wish to be seen by
our friends today In the company of so
w 11 known a police agent as yourself
n Let us see tncn now we can manage
it The simplest way will be for me to
drop behind The friends wont know
we are together and my superiors will
see I am obeying orders
But I dont wish to be shadowed
He spread out his hands with an air
ot bewilderment For the sake ot the
fraternity I must not lose my position
In the ponce You see that
I see one thing which Is enough for
me I am not going to be shadowed
You may as well understand that
But we are not going to quarrel
If necessary we are
He sighed as though I Were most un
reasonable It has always been one ot
my pat theories
Hang your theories Are you going
to persist In following mo
No I am not
Then go your way and leave me to
go inine
Yes I will do that
But he kept at m side Then go
Very well I am sorry I have an
noyed you
I hant be annoyed It you leave me
I am glad to hear that
But you are still coming on
I am thinking
The square was nearly deserted and
I looked everywhere for Volna The
lock chimed the quarter past the hour
She was not there
I pulled Up I have had enough of
this What are you going to do
I havq a suggestion Let us go to
Colonel Bremenhof and tell him He Is
close here
To le Continued Tomorr
