l3ij, the noted aiithor j
"My Dear Katharine," besan John's
loiter rather formally, a:id I knew
without reading uny further that ho
had something" to say that wa3 not
"I am sending- you a cllpplnf: from
ono of the papers here, which will
tell you the wholo story of your entry
Into the business, and your exit
from It, much better than I can.
"It really reads like a movie. You
see a bunch of crooks came down "here
looking for easy money, and after
looking up titles, of different parcels
of land, they came to the conclu
sion as yours had been neglected for
so many years, that whoever had it
had forgotten all about it. They
bought up all the land around your
, little trad, and much to their sur
prise they did atrllco a gusher on
their own land. Not content to make
money honestly they piped out over to
yours hoping to be able to sell both
I their own and your wells at fabulous
prices. It was at this moment that
'your Cousin Charles turned up, and
having paid the taxes which these two
crooks had neglected to do, ho was
able to prove title for you. Then they J
decided to deflect the oil back to their
own well, and did so and there you
Coming: Hack to John.
"You have never had an oiLwell and j
I don't believe there Is any oil on i
jjour land. So sure 1 am of It. that 1
was offered a thousand dollars for
the acre yesterday, and took It, and I
am coming back to take up my own
Job asain. I have Just paid thl3 thou
sand dollars for bills that have been
made- down here.
"I shall probably be. home the first
of the week. Will not come by way
h ui your ijkicc, uccause i Know iiisu
H there are plenty of things that are
JB waiting my coining at the office. It
H was very foolish of mo to allow you
H to persuade nie to go into this matter
H at. all. I never yet have allowed any-
H one to change my mind about business
jH t3'at 1 haven't been sorry for it. I
'jf draw $L',500 on your bank day before
Hn, yesterday. I wish you roulil send me
jSHfflwTjf? a statement of your account, as I think
jrafffffM 1 "iaVe to use at least ?-',500 more
tt&tttp'rm lo straighten up the house purchase.
InFffV llM "That's another foolish thing for
"K?VtM 'c to do, but you see 1 was almost
Hl pushed Into that by the thought of i
Bjf3 your being a very great heiress and I j
HWrfii knew that you did not want to livoi
Eufill with mother. The property was on the I
! market, at a smaller figure than itj
eVor will be sold again. Frankly, how
jovor, I think I had better keep it for
an Investment, and we'll go right on
Uflng with my mother Juat as we hapc
I been doing. You will see by the paper'
clipping that I have hud the men ar
rested. The Job has created a great
I sensation down here; but I don't like
paviny out five or al:r thousand dollars
I Just to provide the reading public with
Told by a Tcleprram.
While 1 was rcadln this letter Han-
nah delivered mo a telegram. It was
from John and read: "I have changed
my mind. Will c with you almost as,
soon aa my special delivery letter.
Things are looking rather blue. Since
I have been away the office has let
two large accounts slip away from
them and with the losses made down -hero
and the purchase of that house
there will be considerable cut in our
Income for the next year. I'll tell you
about ft when I see you, Jonn.
I went to the telephone and -called
iup Charles and ho came over immc-
diaicly. I showed him John's letter
"Katherine, I believe you are
psychic," he said in surprise. "No one i
could have called the turn ns you
did on this entire business without
having some supernatural power.
I wondered what Charles would
think If I should tell him all the things
1 see. Almost every night, b'efore I
I got to sleep. I can visualize Karl
Shepard out there in Lotus Land and I
I know exactly how he looks and al- ,
most what he Is thinking. I
So Intent was I upon my own task
that I did not realize what Charles
was saying, but after he had read
the letter again he said tp me: "Please
UUI1 L Lllilllv, ja.Ullil.-l IIIU, ma. ..... .......
Ing suggestions which I should not,
but if I wero you I would take out
that 5.500 that you have in your
checking account and put it in a safe
deposit box for a little while."
"Why should I do that, Charles?"
Will Want It Immediately
"Well, don't you see that your hus
band is coming back and he will want
that money immediately to put on that
house, and 1 do think you should have
a. little money of your own that you
can call upon If you wish."
"You know 1 have this little Income t
that I can not touch for the upkeep j
of this house, Charles."
"Yes, I know, but "
Tomorrow John Returns.

I ( heforc, but consider how few and far
-t ye--' between aro tho jolly, alert, and alive
r5 middle aged women you know, how
few arc interesting and interested, and
good to talk to and listen to.
Now, considering that Heaven doesn't
turn out many women who arc under

present rival In female pulchritude,
the Living Skeleton, Isn't it about
time that tho fair sex realized that
it ls more Important to keep their

For tho ono can be done, and the
other can't. No woman can keep per
petually young and beautiful,, but any
woman can Keep herself interesting
and an agreeable companion. And
mat's what counts after forty. '
If women would spend as much time
and labor massaging the kinks out of
their tempers as they do the wrinkles
out of their taccs they would get more

Nor does It matter whether a mid
dle aged woman ls a perfect, thlrty-
, Stx or an imperfect fltiy-slx, If her
' gown covers a heart that is full of
sympathy and love for all humanity,
and of understanding and friendliness.
The woman who has aiways palled
with her husband, who has known how
to make excuses, when things went
I wrong, and has checrod hlni on In
times of discouragement, doesn't need
i to worry over nor belt measure. Alter
all, you can't really measuro life with
a corset string.
Women can keep themselves inter-
' estlng. They can keep out of ruts.
They can keep cheerful, and refrain
from telling hard luck stories. They
lean road, and travel, and cultivate an
; Interest In other people, and when they
do, It does not make any difference
whether they are fat or thin.
i A middle aged woman should be at
the most fascinating time of life be-
! cause she In old enough to have ac
quired poise; she is old enough to
j have a wealth of exporlenco behind
her; she n old enough to have learned
' to take a humorous instead of a tragic
view of most things, and sho Is still
young enough to look with Interest at
Ithe closed door of the future
! But sho is only an agreeable com
panion If she has kept her mental fig

pray heaven lo deliver us.

NEW YORK, Juno 11. Designers!
!of street costumes are providing us
with a new thrill every other day or
two, so whllo the "strictly tailored"
suit Is still highly approved of Fash
Ion, it Is difficult to resist tho appeal
of the gayer, more fanciful models.
Hero is one, for instance, a "cos

calls It, that suggests alluring pos
sibilities for making oer an old suit.
Emily Stevens wears It in "Footloose."
It Is so 3lmpln that It ln.rdly needs

skirt and a boxcoat with three-quarter
sleeves that are jiractically the same
width all tho -way down. Then, by
the way of trimming, thero ls a wide,
flat, black braid marked off with tjvo
narrow bands of dull gold braid.
With this suit Miss Stevens wears a I
round turban that adds immeasurably
to tho ensemble. It consists of a
square "of the same duvetyn of which
the suit is mado draped above a band

FOR LITTLE FOLKS
THE TOUGH SASSAFRAS.
"Yes," Mrs. Wocdchuck assured
them, "when the sounds of scratching
and thumping came from the kitchen,
"it's" only Wally digging the sassafras
for our tea." And she turned the flame
'up higher under her little copperjtet
tle on the parlor table. So Nancy and
Nick and Tingaling sat down again.
"As I was saying," sho went on,,

j "Thump, thump, thump, scratch,

"Perhaps he Is." Mrs. Woodchucl; '
said, answering TingalingJs last words, j
"It's most annoying to have such tough I
sassafras. Mr. Tingaling, couldn't you j
rent us a house next year with tender!
Tingaling started for the kitchen,
then, for tho sounds had stopped and
still no Wally appeared.
"Perhaps I can, Mrs. Waodchuck,"
he said. "Nancy and Nick, you stay

"Yes," said Mrs. Woodchuck quickly,
"it is tough. Wally was just saying
(he other day, 'We'll certainly have to
do something about that sassafras to
tender it up ' It's something terrible
"Well, he must be tendering it notf,
with a large-sized shovel," said Tinga
ling grimly, looking suspiciously to
ward the kitchen. But remembering
that the Magical Mushroom was play

sure that Wally couldn't get out that
The fairyman was still feeling cross

Reported Offering Him 2d
Place With Senator Knox
as Leader on Ticket
(By "Universal Service.)
CHICAGO, Juno 10. The situation
at inld-nlght with respect to the presi
dential nomination finds the old guard
leaders still undetermined aa to who
their final choice will be. Indications
point strongly to Philander Knox of
Pennsylvania, as the man upon whom
they'wlll concentrate after their strat
egy has put other candidates out oi
The old guard is boasting tonight
that It lias Johnson beaten. Tho
adoption of a treatv plank acceptable
to him is to be followed In their opin
ion, with his elimination from further
consideration as a candidate..
Fear Johuson's Strength
Nevertheless, fearing Johnson's
etrength as they do, they are continu
ing their efforts to compel Johnson to
accept second placo on the ticket with
Johnson's only reply to these over
tures is that he ls a candidate for
president only; lie refuses absoluloly
to listen to any suggestions that he
take second place, ven with as good
a friend as Senator Knox, for whom
ho has tho highest regard.
Though thoy are still claiming loud
ly that they have put Johnson out of
the race, they have not as yet made
up their minds definitely as to tho
man upon "whom thoy will concentrate
for this purpose.
Tomorrow's balloting, which will
start some time In the afternoon will
undoubtedly give some Insight into
what the old guard has In mind.
Tho strategy of the leaders for to
morrow will be to take not more than
i three ballots before adjourning. On
fthe first ballot they will permit every
lone of the twenty or" more "favorite
jjons" to receive the complimentary
! votes from the states which desire thus
to compliment them.
J On the second ballot some changes
l may be made. Several of the unlm
l portant "favorite sons" will be allowed
jlo drop quietly out filled with tho
(satisfaction that they have been slg
'nally honored by their own slates.
J The third ballot Is expected to wit
ness the first real breaks. It is on
this ballot that the Wood . managers
expect to start the big smash for their
I candidate. Thoy claim they will be
I able to show 400 votes for Wood on
Ithls ballot. They evpect to break Into
jthe New York delegation and into
: other delegations.
HARDING OPPOSED TO
THREATS OF BOLTING
CHICAGO, June 3 0. Discussing the
convention fight, Senator Harding de
clared today that talks of bolts prob
ably were not authorized, "but that
certainly no minority should be per
mitted lo control through threats."
"Those who arc ready to bolt the
party or assail It after a majority de
cision is recorded," he added, "should
have no voice in its deliberations."

When fruit ls mado into preserves
there is less danger of the fruit sooll-

preservative and Is used In Iarsc quan
