The Escapade opens, not In the ro mance preceding the marriage of Ellen Slocum, a Puritan miss, and Lord Car rington of England, but in their life after settling In England. The scene is placed, Jupt following the revolution, in Carring ton castle In England. The Carringtons, after a house party, engaged In a family ,tllt, caused by Jealousy. The attentions of Lord Carrington to Cecily and Lord Strathgate to Lady Carrington com pelled the latter to vow that she would leave the castle. Preparing to flee. Lady Carrington and her chum Deborah, an American girl, met Lord Strathgate at two a. m., he agreeing to see them safely away. He attempted to take her to his castle, but she left him stunned In the road when the carriage met with an ac cident. She and Debbie then struck out for Portsmouth, where she Intended to sail for America. Hearing news of Ellen's flight. Lords Carrington and Seton set out in pursuit. Seton rented a fast vessel and started In pursuit. Strathgate. bleeding from fall, dashed on to Ports mouth, for which Carrington, Ellen and Seton were also headed by different routes. Strathgate arrived In Portsmouth in advance of the others, finding that Ellen's ship had sailed before her. Strathgate and Carrington each hired a small yacht to pursue the wrong vessel, upon which each supposed Ellen had sailed. Seton overtook the fugitives near Portsmouth, but his craft ran aground. Just as capture was imminent. Ellen won the chase by boarding American vessel and foiling her pursuers. Carrington and Strathgate, thrown together by former's wrecking of latter's vessel engaged In an Impromptu duel, neither being hurt. A .war vessel, commanded by an admiral friend of Seton, then started out In pur suit of the women fugitives, Seton con fessing love for Debbie. Flagship Britan nia overtook the fugitives during the night. The two women escaped by again taking to the sea In a small boat. Lord Carrington Is ordered to sea with his ship Jaut refuses to go until after meeting Strathgate In a duel. They light In the grounds of Lord Blythedale’s castle. Encounter Is watched by Ellen und Deb bie. who have reached land and are in hiding. Carrington won a bloody con test at swords from Strathgate, Debbie and Ellen looking on and praying for the latter'B husband. Carrington, immedi ately following the duel, was placed un der arrest for refusing to obey his ad .mlral’s orders and Ellen, who had swooned during the duel, awoke to find ►him gone. Sir Charles Seton found the 'fugitives, proposed to Debbie and was accepted. Debbie. Ellen and Sir Charles made a plea to the king to spare Car rington. The king decides to grant a par don after promising Lady Carrington that he would frighten the lord. King Oeorge, with Admiral Kephard, arrange 'a surprise for Carrington. CHAPTER XXII. The Royal Intervention. Five belle In the forenoon watch on the Britannia. The great ship in the perfection of readiness, so clean that you could have eaten your dinner ofT her decks with a clear conscience If you wished; her 700 men In spick and span uniforms, her officers gorgeous in gold lace, royal blue and spotless white; her marines In vivid scarlot; her masts decked with flags from fly lng-Jlb to spanker-boom end, her yards manned with row after row of Bailors, others mustered around the great guns on the main deck, was ready for a visit from her august master. Everybody on the ship was full of excitement except the lonely prisoner in the gunroom. A barge was seen pulling from the shore and from a flagstaff forward the royal ensign flut tered out In the fresh morning breeze. In a few moments a little man In a shovel hat and plain civilian's dress stepped out of the boat and clambered briskly up the accommodation ladder —really a flight of stairs which had been rigged over the side. The ad miral, the flag-captain, the officers of the ship, hats in hand, with much bow ing and saluting met him at the gang way. As the royal foot touched the white deck the royal flag was broken out at the masthead, the boatswain piped, the band struck up "God Save the King" and the great guns of the main deck thundered out the royal salute. The admiral turned, faced forward, waved his cocked hat and the whole ship rang with enthusiastic cheering. The king nodded like the plain little famer he was, without any particular ceremony, shook hands with the ad miral, waved his arm graciously to the officers and, attended by the admiral, stepped aft and disappeared later in the great cabin under the poop deck. “Now," said the king, as he sat down in the cabin, “has everything been prepared?” • “Everything is ready, your majesty. The ship is provisioned for her cruise, the officers and men aboard. All ready, sir." "I performed my part of the under taking this morning.” The king chuckled. Kephard grinned profoundly, but said nothing. "You can fetch the prisoner here now." The admiral turned and called the orderly, gave him a message, and In a few moments my lord Carrington, un armed, presented himself in the cabin. By the king's direction Kephard stood in front of his majesty, and Car rington did not at first see who was there. He knew certainly from the commotion that the king had come aboard the ship, but that was all. "Lieutenant Lord Carrington," be gan Admiral Kephard .severely, “the hour of your court-martial has arrived, but before you appear In its presence his gracious majesty has kindly thought fit to see you in person. He is here to receive you, to hear what you have to say for yourself." Admiral Kephard suddenly stepped aside and disclosed little George sit ting back in the huge admiral's chair. Little George had a very heavy frown upon his face and did his best to as sume a godlike and menacing mein. Carrington knelt at once. The king looked hard at him. “Rise, air,” he said In a voice which be strove to make harsh and forbid ding. “Pretty doings I hear about you.” Lord Carrington bowed profoundly, but said nothing. “Have you nothing to say for your self, sir?” continued the king. “Your majesty, nothing.” **Hey! What?” cried King Oeorge. “Nothing, air." "Yon make love to another woman, •Cecily Carrington; you are ashamed of your wife; you allow her to run Away with Strathgate—” “Your majesty.” cried Carrington, stung to action, “give me leave, sir." He bowed. To interrupt the king was a heinous offense. “Have I permission to proceed, sir?” "Proceed,” returned hls majesty. “You have been misinformed in one particular. Nothing you can say of me or to me is unmerited, that I will ad mit; but Lady Carrington did not run away with Lord Strathgate." “I understood he drove away with her in your carriage at night, at two o'clock In the morning.” Lord Carrington winced under the apparent Insinuation. "That is true,” he replied; “but my lady was entirely Innocent. She had with her a young woman ,a compan ion. She knows not the world, your majesty.” “And you were ashamed of her for that?” “I was, your majesty. Now, I glory in4he fact.” “Go on, sir.” “And she simply used Strathgate as she would a coachman. When he would fain have abducted her she tried to shoot him. She did escape from him and, thank God! I was able to place him out of the running before he could pursue her or annoy her again.” "You fought a duel with Lord Strathkate?” "Yes. your majesy.” “You know my opinion of duelling? You know the law?” “Yes, your majesty. There was nothing else I could do." "You’re not sorry for It?" asked the king sternly. Carrington had to tell the truth. Although he felt morally certain that he would bring down upon hls head the wrath of the king, which would he the last straw added to hls already heavy burdens, he scorned to lie. “No, I am not sorry, sir. I should do it again." “You’re an honest man. Lord Car rington." said the king, “If a very fool lah one.” "It was Lord Strathgate himself who told me that I was, saving your ma jesty’s grace, a damned fool.” "Ahem!” said the king, "it seems that Lord Strathgate can speak the truth on occasion. When said he that?" “Lying on the ground with my sword through him," answered Car rington, his face flushing at the king's deliberate corroboration of Strath gate’s uncomplimentary opinion. "Well," said the king, “that’s what caused you to disobey orders?” "That and that only, your majesty, and I am ready to take the punishment for It, whatever it may be." "And what is It likely to be?" “Dismissal from the service, per chance, sir," returned Carrington hoarsely. “And your wife, what of her; Where Is she?” "I would to God I knew. If I could have word that she were safe and well, sir, I could bear anything." “You have that word." “What, sir?” exclaimed Carrington. “You have it.” "Whose word?" "Mine, your king's. 'Tls as good as that of any gentleman in England. I take It, Lord Carrington,” said the king, with a real touch of majesty. “Your majesty,” returned my lord, sinking to his knees again, " 'Tls as surance enough for the most dis traught mind. I thank your majesty. I bless your majesty. Now, sir, I am ready for the court." “Good!” said the king. 'But will your majesty add one favor to this assurance. May ! not see my wife?” “Well, Kephard. what do you think about it? Should a prisoner on trial be permitted to see hls wife?” “Not Immediately, your majesty,” growled Kephard, turning away to hide hls face. "I think it will have to be as your admiral says. Lord Carrington,” said the king. "You cannot see her for the present.” My lord was too proud to beg, yet there was something else he could do. “There is something else. May I ask your majesty?” “What Is it?" said the king kludly. “Ask what you like." “Will your majesty—Can a message be carried to her from me?” “I think there’s no harm in that, eh, Kephard?” “No, your majesty.” “What is the mesasge?” "Wilt your majesty tell Lady Car rington how I have misjudged her and how bitterly I have repented my fol lies. and how proud and happy I am that she Is not as Lady Cecily and the others?” "I think I may say that she will get the message in due time," said the king. “And if I might further trespass on your majesty's good nature, I will ask to have this letter sent to her.” As ho spoke my lord pulled a paper from out hls breast pocket. “What is that?" said the king. “ 'Tls a letter I wrote on the eve of my engagement with Lord Strathgate. It may be conceived of as conveying the true sentiments of my heart.” “Hark ye, Carrington.” said the king, "I will not have Lady Carring ton. to whom I have taken a great fancy, further vexed by letters or mes sages.” “Your majesty," answered Carring ton. "you may read the letter yourself. 'Tls such a letter as would convey Joy to any woman's heart, provided she loved her husband and could forgive him his folly.” "Well, as to what may be the state of Lady Carrington's feelings toward you, that will have to be developed later. Meanwhile” —the king hauled from hls pocket two papers —"Admiral Kephard, here Is an order which will obviate the necessity of a court-mar tial. As commander-ln-chlef of the fleet I Interpose. I am informed that the frigate Bellona Is ready for three years' tour of duty In the East Indies.” The Lonely Prisoner in the Gunroom. "You're right, sir," answered Kep hard. “Here Is an order from the admiral ty appointing Lord Carrington first lieutenant of that ship.'' “Ay. ay, sir,” answered Kephard. taking the order and scanning It rap idly. "Lord Carrington,” said the king gravely, “I have estopped the court martial. Your offense has been a seri ous one, however, and It cannot go un punished. Because of it I order you to the Bellona. You will spend three years In the East Indies. Perhaps by that time you will come back a hap pier and a wiser man." “A wiser, your majesty, but there can be no happiness for me.” “And why?" ‘‘Because I am parted from Lady Carrington and because 1 have shown m.vaef unworthy of her.” (TO BE CONTINUED.) The Best Razor Strop. “The best razor strop I ever had was a piece or glass,” said the club barber. "An old barber gave it to me. Unfortunately I let It fall and It broke, and I have never been able to get one like It. There’s some kink In the grinding which I can't seem to figure out. In these days a good razor strop Is a mighty hard thing to find and I would give a good deal if I could only get that piece of ground glass back again. It sure did put a cutting edge on the razor.” Those Early Marriages. But she clung to him and trembled "Darling!” he whispered. "What fearest thou? Are we not wedded, no more to part?” She gazed at him terrlfledly. "Ay, wedded, and at page 87!*’ she cried. “I know something is going to happen!” Nor was her dread wholly unreason able, considering that a novel had to have at least 400 pages, with two thrills per page. In order to get Into the t 1.60 class.—Puck. FEEDING TESTS MADE WITH A DAIRY HERD Results of Investigations by the Wisconsin Experiment Station Under Direction of George C. Humphrey* Animal Husbandman. The present Wisconsin uni versity dairy herd was estab lished In 1898, since when com plete records of the feed consump tion and the production of milk and butter fat for all of the cows have been kept. The herd numbers about 30 milch cows, all but two pure-breds, the following dairy breeds being rep resented therein: .Jerseys, Guernseys, Holsteins, Ayrshires, and Brown Swiss. It Is maintained primarily for Instructional and research purposes, but It Is aimed to have It return as much revenue as possible under the conditions present, through the sale of ntllk ami cream und of surplus stock. The former purposes neces sarily prevent the herd from making as high and economical production as It might if it w. re conducted wholly on a common i i] basis. In the management of the herd It has been our practice to surround the cows with the conditions best suited Value of products. v , Live Annual Cost of Not weight. milk. „ uttor Sklm feed.

During the entire winter period the cows were confined In comfortable stalls in the barn, ex cept for a short time on dry, warm days, when they were allowed to exer cise in the yard. They were watered twice dally In cement troughs in the barn and were not turned out on cold days for at least a couple of hours after watering The following daily schedule of work In the dairy barn shows the system of management of the cows during the winter period: Daily Schedule of Work in Dairy Barn 4:00 n. m.—Grain f«-.l 4:t3 a. m. — Cows milked. «:.•» a. tip— Silage fed. , 7:30 a. m.—Cows watered. 8:00 a. m.—Stahl* * cleaned and bedded. 1 0:00 a. m.— Hay fed. 10:00 a. m.—Cows groomed. j 11:43 a. m.—Cows turned out. 2:00 p. m.— Stables - leaned. ; 3:30 p. m.—Cows watered, j 4:00 p. in.—Grain fed. 1 4:15 p. m. —Cows milked. 0:00 p. in.—Silage f- d. Fresh heavy milkers were milked three times a day, viz., at 4:00 and 11:30 a. ni . and at 7:10 p. m. The roughage fed to the cows dur ing the winter periods consisted of corn silage and mixed lmy, largely timothy and clover, with occasional Feeding Time, University Dairy Herd. feeding of roots (sugar beets). The grain was made up of a variety of different feeds: wheat bran, corn meal, distillers' grains, oats, oil meal and brewers’ grains, the first three be ing fed throughout the period, and the others at times in smaller quantities. The standard grain mixture fed dur ing the past year was made up of wheat bran, corn meal and distillers’ grains. In the proportion of 3:4:3, the nutritive ratio of the mixture being 1:4.6. The general practice followed was to feed as many pounds of grain dally per cow as she produced pounds of butter fat during the week, I. e. seven times as much grain as the amount of fat produced daily (or one quarter to one-third bb much grain as the amount of milk given, according to Its quality). The cows received in ad dition to this allowance of concen trates, as much silhge and hay as they could eat up clean, the amounts paten varying according with the feed ing capacity of the different cows, 25 to 45 pounds of silage and four to six pounds of hay being the usual amounts eaten daily. TESTING SEEDS BY GERMINATION Count out 60 or 100 seeds of the kind to be tested, and place them in a plate between two folds of moistened canton flannel or thin blotting paper. On a slip of white paper record the va riety, number of seeds, and the date, then place it on the edge of the plate. Cover the whole with another plate or a pane of glass to prevent too rapid evaporation of moisture. Set the plate In a warm room (68 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit), and examine the seeds every 24 hours for six or eight days. If they get too dry add enough water to moisten, not saturate, the cloth or blotting paper. At the end of the test count the sprouted seeds and from them determine what percentage of the whole number of seeds are good. With large seeds no difficulty will be experienced In using the folds of can ton flannel but with email seeds the blotting paper is better. Another seed tester Is made by In verting a small tin basin (b) In a larger baste (a) and cover! a* the small ba The nutritive ratios of the entire winter rations made up as described, ranged from 1:6.3 to 8.8, according ■ to the production of the cows and tho amounts of concentrates fed. Tho grain and tho roughage eaten by each i cow were weighed out at every feed ing and a careful record kept of the amounts. These were charged on our record book to the respective cows opposite their weekly production of milk and butter fat, as determined by separate weighings of each milking ; and testing a composite sample of tho i milk produced by each cow during tho week. Tho cows wore carefully watched to see that they ate with keen appetites. If they did not clean up their feed readily. It was reduced in quantity or varied as to kinds fed, so ns to make certain that they were always in a thrifty condition and did not get off feed. A possible tendency towards fattening which Is common in cows of less pronounced inherent dairy temperaments, was guarded against by changing tho character of the rations fed whenever such a ten dency was madu apparent by the weekly weights of the cows and by direct observation The cows were turned to pasture at the close of the winter period, May 12. and the grain feed reduced; silage or hay were fed after that date last year. At the time tho pastures began to dry up they were supplemented by green corn fed In the barn and later on by corn silage. Similar quantities of soiling crops were fed as of silage, viz., 20 to 30 pounds per head dully, on the average; more or less grain be ing fed through the summer In the case of nearly all the cows. The accompanying table contains a list of the cows which completed a year’s record on May 12, 1908, and shows for each cow the live weight, the cost of the feed, the milk and but ter fat produced, the value of the prod ucts, and the net profit over and above tho cost of the feed eaten. The cows are arranged In the table In the or der of decreasing net profits for the year. The following schedule of prices has been used in calculating the cost of the feeds fed and in determining the value of the products. The prices of feeds given may be considered aver age market prices for Wisconsin, And are in accord with the prices assumed for the milk and butter fat produced by the herd. The amount of butter has been calculated by adding one sixth to the number of pounds of but ter fat and the skim milk by taking 80 per cent, of the number of pounds of milk.

The future Is noi half so creepy to tho girl "standing with unwilling feet where the brook and river meet," as It Is to that same girl when she reaches “the between age" ami finds age staring her in the face. Every woman hates to grow old, and tho more vital has been her life, the more filled with Joy and popularity, the greater that hatred. It Is not pleasant to picture oneself friendless, lonely and not wanted around; to feel one’s hair and eyes and teeth get the worse for wear, and know that however tight your grip, youth refuses to bo held. An old woman who Is lovable never yet lacked love; the trouble is that so many of us forget to keep lovable. We grow sour, or discontented or captious and then blame our lack of friends on ' our years. The woman who need not fear grow ing old Is the woman who keeps alive to the times, whose mind Is alert to tho best In the world to-day rather than raking over the past; who docs not worry, therefore does not “fuss,” whose aim Is a young heart and in achieving It forgets to fret over wrinkles and bodily age. MODISH COIFFURE. In this Illustration is shown the new and fashionable arrangement of the hair. It is slightly parted in the front and drawn softly to the bark, where there is a loose psyche knot formed of puffs and around which is fastened a band of velvet or satin ribbon. Princess Business Gown. The smartest of broadcloth princess gowns are being shown for business wear. They are made perfectly plain, buttoned all the way down the front and have long buttoned sleeves. When Applying Skin Food. In rubbing skin food on the face particular attention should be paid to the lines around the mouth, which. If not treated with care, are apt to de generate Into wrinkles. One side should be massaged at a time, the tongue being first pushed as forcibly as possible against the cheek so as to press out the lines, when the fin gers can work In the cream, the mus cles being afterward pinched and rolled gently with the tips of the first finger and thumb until a healthy glow Is experienced. Hint for Washing Hair. To avoid tangling tho hair when washing It, first separate It Into two parts by running the comb from the forehead straight down the back of the head. Then divide each of these parts Into two and make four small braids instead of one large one. When the washing la done, if each braid la taken oat and combed by there will be few. If any. tangles. This la an especially good Idea In washing a child’s hair. HARD PILLOWS ON DIVAN. Bhould Be Arranged So as to Support the Softer Ones. Every one does not know that a wide divan Ih made more comfortable by having at Its back two huge, hard pillows thut will support tho softer ones. It Is usual to heap up a great variety of those extra soft ones on a large divnn so that anyone sitting or reclin ing may arrange then according to one's comfort. These are needed, It Is true, but they also need a support. The wall is usually too far back from the front edge of the divan to serve. Tho two large pillows made of tho material which covers the divnn arc not only comfortable, but artistic. They may bo stuffed with excelsior Into coarse muslin or ticking, then covered with tho chosen fabric. They look better with a heavy cord around the edging. If the end of the divan Is against the wall ns well as Its side, a third pillow may be ndded to give an added frame work to the little pillows. This Is not an expensive trick, but if a housewife ever tries It she will never let tho divan go without this part of its equipment. Gray and Pink Veils. Even on inclement days the girl of to-day wants to look her best. She does not wear any old hat and frock for fear of rain, but she dresses her self from head to foot In a costume built for tho weather. It Is now her custom to save her good and expensive fish net veils for dry weather, so on wet days she wears a close face veil of deep rose pink chiffon and over this a thin veil of gray sewing silk. These are snugly pinned over her hat, covering the trimming, and neatly tucked Into place at the nape of the neck and at the top. Baby Carriage Robe. These little affairs are made like pillow covers, with a flap at the top that overlaps the front and closes with a small button. The flap is scalloped, embroidered and also finished with a monogram. The other portion Is left quite plain, or a simulated hem Is outlined with a white briar stitch. Being made In this shape It can con veniently bo used at times to hold small articles of Infant clothing. Waistcoats in Fur Coats. Paris has started the fashion for wearing gold embroidered waistcoats set with beautifully colored glass beads In coats of fur. What It Means to Be Smart. Dress Is the keynote of tho situation at country house parties. A smart woman Is expected to make as many alterations as a quick-change artist at a music hall. She wants tailor-made gowns, shooting and motoring suits, smart frocks for luncheons, dainty dresses for tea and splendid costumes for dinner; and no gown, whether day or evening, must make a second ap pearance.—The Tattler. Domestic Crepe Blouses. Since the popularity of white cotton crepe for everyday blouses a domestic cotton crepe for 15 cents a yard has been brought out. It is not nearly as good style as the Japanese article, but, as the other Is expensive, this serves as a good substitute. It washes well and can be trimmed with a little cot ton lace. In Dundee, as in other manufactur ing towns in Scotland, bread is sel dom made in the homes of wage earners. They economize rigorously in other ways, but pay the bakers a profit on their big four-pound loaves. There are no facilities in many of the one-room and two-room houses of the poorer workingmen to make bread.
