A cyclone lifted their home Into the air, Dorothy falling asleep amidst the excitement. A crash awakened her. The house had landed in a country of marvelous beauty. Groups of queer little people greeted her to the Land of Munchkins. The house had killed their enemy, the wicked witch of East. Dor othy took the witch's silver shoes. Bhe started for the Emerald City to And the WI sard of O*. who. she was promised, might find away to send her back to Kansas. Dorothy released a scarecrow, giving him life. He was desirous of ac quiring brains and started with her to the wizard to get them. The scarecrow told his history. They met a tin wood man, who longed for a heart. He also toliwd them. They came upon a terrible Kon. CHAPTER Vl<—Continued. Little Toto, now that he had an enemy to face, ran barking toward the Lion, and the great beast had opened his mouth to bite the dog, when Doro thy, fearing Toto would be killed, and heedless of danger, rushed forward and slapped the Lion upon his nose as hard as she could, while she cried out: “Don’t you dare to bite Toto! You ought to be ashamed of yourself, a big beast like you, to bite a poor little dog!” "I didn’t bite him.” said the Lion, as he rubbed his nose with his paw where Dorothy had hit it. “No, but you tried to,” she retorted. "You are nothing but a big coward.” “I know it,” said the Lion, hanging his head in shame; “I've always known it. But how can I help it?” “I don’t know. I’m sure. To think of your striking a stuffed man like the poor Bcarecrow!” “Is be stuffed?” asked the Lion, in surprise, as he watched her pick up the Scarecrow and set him upon his feet, while she patted him into shape again. "Of course he’s stuffed,” replied Dorothy, who was still angry. 'That’s why he went over so easi ly,” remarked the Lion. “It astonished me to see him whirl around so. Is the other one stuffed, also?” “No,” said Dorothy, “he's made of tin.” And she helped the Woodman up again. •'That’s why he nearly blunted ray claws,” said the Lion. “When they scratched against the tin It made a cold shiver run down my back. What is that little animal you are so ten der of?” “He Is my dog, Toto.” answered Dorothy. “Is he made of tin, or stuffed V asked the Lion. "Neither. He’s a —a —a meat dog,” said the girl. “Oh. He’s a curious animal, and seems remarkably small! now that I look at him. No one would think of biting such a little thing except a coward like me,” continued the Lion, sadly. "What makes you a coward?” asked Dorothy, looking at the great beast iu wonder, for he was as big as a small horse. “It’s a mystery.” replied the Lion. "I suppose I was born that way. AH The Cowardly Lion. the other animals in the forest natur ally expect me to be brave, for the Uon Is everywhere thought to be the King of Beasts. I learned that If I roared very loudly every living thing was frightened and got out of my way. Whenever I’ve met a man I’ve been awfully scared; but I Just roared at him, and he has always run away as fast as he could go. If the elephants and the tigers and the bears had ever tried to fight me, I should have run myself—l'm such a coward; but Just as soon ns they hear me roar they all try to get away from me, and of course I let them go." "But that Isn’t right. The King of Beasts shouldn't be. a coward," said the Scarecrow. "I know it r ” returned the Lion, wiping a tear from his eye with the tip of his tail; “It is my great sorrow*, and makes my life very unhappy. But whenever there is danger my , heart begins to beat fast.” "Perhaps you have heart disease,” said the Tin Woodman. “It may be,” said the Lion. "It you have,” continued the Tin Woodman, “you ought to be glad, for U- proves you have a heart. For my part, I have no heart; so I cannot have heart disease.” “Perhaps.” said the Lion, thought fully, “U I had no heart 1 should not be a coward." “Have you brains?” asked the Scare crow. “I suppose so. I’ve never looked to see,” replied the Lion. “I am going to the great Oz to ask him to give me some,” remarked the Scarecrow, “for my head is stuffed with straw.” “And I am going to ask him to give me a heart,” said the Woodman. “And I am going to ask him to send Toto and me back to Kansas,” added Dorothy. "Do you think Oz could give me courage?” asked the Cowardly Lion. “Just as easily as he could give me brains,” said the Scarecrow. "Or give me a heart,” said the Tin Woodman. “Or send me back to Kansas,” said Dorothy. “Then, If you don't mind. I'll go with you,” said the Lion, “for my life is ”1 Didn’t Bite Him.” simply unbearable without a bit of courage.” “You will be very welcome,” an swered Dorothy, "for you will help to keep away the other wild beasts. It seems to me they must be more cow ardly than you are if they allow you to scare them so easily." “They really are," said the Lion; "but that doesn't make ine any braver, and as long as I know myself to be a coward I shall be unhappy.” So once more the little company set off upon the Journey, the Lion walk ing with stately strides at Dorothy’s side. Toto did not approve this new comrade at first, for he could not for get how nearly he had been crushed between the Lion's great Jaws; but after a time he became more at ease, and presently Toto and the Cowardly Lion had grown to be good friends. During the rest of that day there was no other adventure to mar the peace of their Journey. Once, Indeed, the Tin Woodman stepped upon a beetle that was crawling along the road, and killed the poor little thing. This made the Tin Woodman very un happy. for he was always careful not to hurt any living creature; and as he walked along he wept several tears of sorrow and regret. These tears ran slowly down his face and over the hings of his Jaw, and there they rusted. When Dorothy presently asked him a question the Tin Woodman could not open his mouth, for his Jaws were tightly rusted together. He be came greatly frightened at this and made many motions to Dorothy to re lieve him. but she could not under stand. The Lion was also puzzled to know what was wrong. But the Scarecrow seized the oil-can from Dor othy’s basket and oiled the Wood man's Jaws, so that after a few mo ments he could talk as well as before. “This will serve me a lesson.” said he. "to look where I step. For if I should kill another bug or beetle I should surely cry again, and crying rusts my Jaw so that I cannot speak.” Thereafter he walked very careful ly, with his eyes on the road, and when he saw a tiny ant tolling by he would step over it. so as not to harm it. The Tin Woodman knew* very well he had no heart, and therefore he took great care never to be cruel or unkind to anything. "You people with hearts," he said, "have something to guide you, anu need never go wrong; but I have no heart, and so I must be very careful. -*t -*ry • ' - • When Oz gives me a heart of course I needn't mind so much.” criAP vn\M Th^Joi/ri\gvf|j| They were obliged to camp out that night under a large tree in the forest, for there were no houses near. The tree made a good, thick covering to protect them from dew, and the Tin Woodman chopped a great pile of w’ood with his ax and Dorothy built a splendid fire that warmed her and made her feel less lonely. She and Toto ate the last of their bread, and now she did not know what they w’ould do for breakfast. “If you wish." Bald the Lion, "I will go into the forest and kill a deer for you. You can roast it by the fire, since your tastes are so peculiar that you prefer cooked food, and then you will have a very good breakfast.” "Don’t! please don’t,” begged the Tin Woodman. "I should certainly weep if you killed a poor deer, and then my Jaws would rust again." But the Lion went away into the forest and found his own supper, and no one ever knew what it was, for he didn't mention it. And the Scarecrow found a tree full of nuts and filled Dorothy’s basket with them, so that she would not be hungry for a long time. She thought this w*as very kind and thoughtful of the Scarecrow, but she laughed heartily at the awkward way in which the poor creature picked up the nuts. His padded hands were so clumsy and the nuts were so small that he dropped almost as many as he put in the basket. But the Scare crow did not mind how long it took him to fill the basket, for it enabled him to keep away from the fire, as he feared a spark might get Into his straw and burn him up. So he kept a good distance away from the flames, and only came near to cover Dorothy with dry leaves when she lay down to sleep. These kept her very snug and warm and she slept soundly until morning. When It was daylight the girl bathed her face in a little rippling brook and soon after they all started toward the Emerald City. This was to be an eventful day for the travelers. They had hardly been walking an hour when they saw be fore them a great ditch that crossed the road and divided the forest as far as they could see on either side. It was a very wide ditch, and when they crept up to the edge and looked into it they could see it was also very deep, and there were many big. Jagged rocks at the bottom. The sides were so steep that none of them could climb down, and for a moment It seemed that their Journey must end. "What shall we do?” asked Doro thy, despairingly. ”1 haven't the faintest Idea.” said the Tin Woodman; and the Lion shook his shaggy mane and looked thoughtful. But the Scarecrow said: “We cannot fly, that is certain; neither can we climb down into this great ditch. Therefore, If we cannot Jump over it, we must stop where we are.” “I think I could jump over It," said the Cowardly Lion, after measuring the distance carefully in his mind. "Then we are all right,” answered the Scarecrow, "for you can carry us all over on your back, one at a time.” “Well, I'll try it,” said the Lion. "Who will go first?” “I will,” declared the Scarecrow; “for, if you found that you could not jump over the gulf, Dorothy would be killed, or the Tin Woodman badly dented on the rockq below. But if I am on your back it will not matter so much, for the fall would not hurt me at all.” "I am terribly afraid of falling my self," said the Cowardly Lion, “but I suppose there is nothing to do but try it. So get on my back and we will make the attempt.” The Scarecrow sat_upon the Lion's back, and the big beast walked to the .-age of the gulf and crouched down. "Why don't, you run and jump!” asked the Scarecrow. BE (JONTINUKDJ DENVER MARKETS Cattle.

He admitted his guilt hut claimed the killing was justifiable. He said a flock of sage bens alight ed among his nheep one day, Hnd, af ter much work, be succeeded In driv ing away all save one young, tooth some chicken, which insisted on re maining with the flock. which was greatly disturbed by the flutering fowl. Finally, in desperation, and to prevent his flock from stampeding, young Jones shot the sage chicken, and later placed It in the camp wagon. Intending to bury it. Returning to camp that night hungry, and the chicken being fat and Inviting. Jones says he cooked and ate It. The next day a game* warden found chicken feathers near th«- camp wagon and charged Jones with a violation of tbe game laws. Before now herders and others have claimed sage chickens would fly against their camp wagon and be in Jured so that death was necessary to relieve them of suffering, but this is the first time on record where a sage hen had to be killed out of season to prevent tbe stampeding of sheep. Ninety bucks out of a flock of 137 were burled by a <ave-in near Corazo San Miguel county Tbe sheep were being driven In a deep arroyo when the banks fell In and buried the anl mals under tons of earth and rock.

For the Hostess Chat on Topics of Many Kinds, by z Recoan'red Au*hß»l‘v “Puzzle” Announcement Party. Quite recently a hostess used puz zle pictures to announce the engage ment of the guest of honor. The club to which the young couple belonged were invited and as no one suspected the news that was to be revealed, the affair was entirely successful. Tables and puzzles were arranged so that four persons worked together, the hostess explained that when the six tables had completed their puz zles a very Interesting story would be woven from the pictures; that a prize would be awarded to the one who first guessed the story. The first picture put together showed a boy and girl with a map upon v/hich there were two states, Maine and Ohio; the sec ond puzzle revealed a man and a girl dancing with the words “Yale” and “Vassur.” Then the third picture was a poser, for it was simply a cut of a White Star liner, the fourth puzzle was a Pullman train marked “California Limited;” The fifth was a scene in a park, with a couple sitting under the trees, and the sixth was a bride and groom walking up the aisle over which were the initials of the young couple. The prize was a large box of con fettl with which the pair were duly showered. Congratulations followed and every one was delighted. The hostess had painted some of the pic tures, pasted them on thin sheets of wood and a boy friend cut them out on his jig saw. Post cards, advertise ments and magazines furnished the others. A delicious salad of canned aspara gus, sprinkled with grated cheese and mayonnaise with a garnish of stuffed olives cut in halves. Cheese straws were passed with it, and lemonade, in which a bottle of ginger ale was added in the proportion of a bottle to every quart of lemonade. Unique Thimbls Party. We belonged to a thimble club of ten members, and once a month one of us gave an afternoon to which each member asked a guest, makings party of 20. At the affair I wish to describe for your department readers the hostess had five tables with the fol lowing stunts to be accomplished: First, to see who could sew on the most buttons in the time alotted; sec ond, to see who could sew on the most lace; third, the best buttonhole in five minutes; fourth, the best patch work squdre; fifth, the neatest hem in the square of cheese cloth. We played partners, the two best progress ing. We were all given wee baskets with silk bag tops attached and the Markers were buttons, hooks and Dainty Candle Shades A dainty candle shade gives a pret ty finish to table, mantel or dresser, and the new tinted flower shades mounted over colored silk are most attractive. The woman who is clever with her brushes may make no end of pretty things, but these shades may be imitated even by those who krow nothing about painting, providing ihey put the color on In a neat, careful manner. The first step is to trace the design on a piece of water-color paper, then color It. either shading. If one knows bow, or using flat washes with pen and ink outline. In the latter case use waterproof Ink, going over every line when the paint is dry. This wash and outline work is quite as effective as the more difficult light and shade. In either case use a light brown for the stems, two shades of green for the leaves, the smaller leaves the lighter, and the centers of the flowers yellow, with the inner petals of the roses deep rose and the outer petals deli cate pink. This is mounted over a pink silk shade. The design is planned so that the After the Announcement. It would be ridiculous to say that a girl should be more careful of her manners at one time than at others, but nevertheless It is perfectly true that a girl's actions are more likely to be scrutinized and criticised on cer tain occasions than on others. Per haps a girl Is more apt to be criti cised -during the early part of her en gagement than at other times. Every small act of a girl is under the sever est Inspection by the family and friends of her future husband, and especially if she has not been known to them before. It is an exceedingly wise young woman who conducts her sell so that even the most critical could find no fault. It would seem unnecessary to say that a girl should not accept any at tentions from any young men, yet Lhere are many young women who make the foolish and seemingly harm less mistake. It Is not the place of a young girl to make any advances to *he family of her fiance, except un der exceptional conditions. The the ory is that a girl should wati to be velcomed into the family to which dot will belong in the future, and it eyea, spools of thread, steel bodkins etc. There were prizes of needle books, scissors and spool cases filled. Farewell Envelope Shower. To a girl who was going away for a prolonged absence, a friend planned and carried out this acceptable show er. Her guests all entered into the splrit of the occasion and made it a success. Each person was asked tc bring something In an envelope, as space must be considered when one is going to Europe. It was wonderful the way the envelopo scheme devel oped; there was an envelope of denim with strap handles for holding inaga zlnes, letter paper pad, pencil, etc. Then there was a nest of long envel opes tied together filled with all sorte of interesting clippings, anecdotes, ar ticles of Interest along the lines that the voyager was especially to study. One envelope contained a wee deck of cards for playing solitaire, an other held courtplaster; one had snap shots of home scenes and near friends; several large envelopes held hand illuminated mottos, and, best of all, a rich bachelor uncle took this way of giving his niece some green backs. The envelope was labeled "Extras.” One practical girl brought a set of envelopes marked "For Emergency;” there were buttons on a card, needles, safety pins, a card of beauty pins, hairpins of all sizes and an invisible hair net. It is impossible to enumerate all that this shower brought forth besides the regulat steamer letters. MADAMK MKltltl. (Copyright, 1909.)

Before joining, however, the background of the design is to be cut out with small pointed scissors, leaving a delicate tracery of leaves and flowers. The effect of the silk under the flowers is very pretty. The little shades may be purchased all ready to slip the painted shade over, and the design given is planned to exactly fit them. They come bead-fringed In all colors for 50 cents, the best variety with silk outside and a lining of mica, a thin substance that will not burn. Then there are dainty little separate silk linings of different colors with a silk fringe to match for 15 cents. The pink shades are. perhaps, the most effective with the wild rose de sign. but yellow is also pretty. If a yellow lining is used, then the flowers may be painted yellow. A light green lining is also pretty under the pink or yellow shade. is for that family to receive her gra ciously and kindly.

NEW STRENGTH FOR WOMEN'S BACKS. How to Make a Bad Back Better. Women who suffer with backache, bearing down pains, dizzy spells and that constant feeling of dullness and tired ness, will find hope in the advice of Mrs. Mary Hinson of 21 Strother St., Mt. Sterling, Ky. “Had I not used Doan's Kidney Pills, I be- lieve I would not be living today," says Mrs. Hinson. “My eyesight was poor, I suffered with nervous, splitting head aches, spots would dance before my eyes and at times I would be so dizzy I would have to grasp something for support. My back was so weak and painful I could hardly bend over to but ton my shoes and could not get around without suffering severely. Doan's Kid ney Pills helped me from the first, and I continued until practically well again." Remember the name —Doan's. Sold by all dealers. CO cents a box. Foster* MUburn Co., Buffalo, N. Y.

The emperor received the general at the castle of Flnkenstein, while he was preparing for the siege of Danzig.

"What a chance you missed!” exclaimed the latter. "You might have changed the whole course of history.” "How?” "Why, you might have thrown him out of the window.” “Confound it!" replied Blucher. “So I might!

A trained nurse says: "In th* practice of my profession l' have found so many points in favor of Grape-Nuts food that I unhesitatingly recommend it to all my patients. "It Is delicate and pleasing to the palate (an essential in food for the sick), and can be adapted to all ages, being softened with milk or‘cream for babies or the aged when deficiency of teeth renders mastication Impos sible. For fever patients or those on liquid diet I find ‘Grape-Nuts and albu men water very nourishing and re freshing.’ “This recipe is my own Idea and is made as follows: Soak a teaspoonful of Grape-Nuts in a glass of water for an hour, strain and serve with the beaten white of an egg and a spoonful of fruit Juice for flavouring. This af fords a great deal of nourishment that even the weakest stomach can assim ilate without any distress. "My husband is a physician and he uses Grape-Nut* himself and orders It many times for his patients. "Personally I regard a dish of Grape- Nuts with fresh or stewed fruit as the ideal breakfast for anyone—well or sick.” In any case of stomach trouble, nerv ous prostration or brain fag, a 10 day trial of Grape-Nuts will work wonders toward nourishing and rebuilding and n this way ending the trouble.
