Sally Purdou looked anxiously over i
her shoulder with less confidence than I
her words Implied
But what If they dont Und us
asked Julia breathlessly trying to keep
pace with her companion If we
trcut able to get back to tho vlllqgo
in timo for the dinner that wont
help us very much
Well manage to get back nil right
said Sally looking critically through
the trees at the fading light of tho
ftutunm sun It Will be dark enough
noon for us to wake n dash out through
the other end of the grove through 11
ono df tho farms and from there wo
can get to tho village from tho upper
end The sophomores wont expect us
in that direction
Quick I Sally had suddenly changed
the tone of her voice and wan crouch
ing with an arm around her companion
y behind vn cjtimp of laurel bushes
Theyre In the grove slip whispered
Lie flat nnd dont breathe
Oh dear whispered Julia as the
I sharp twigs scratched her face but
Sallys palm clapped suddenly over
her mouth cut her complaints short

the du3d leaves and whispering voices
eame nearer Theyre In here some
where said one We must got Sally
anyway The footsteps suddenly
ceased within n few feet of the
urouchlng freshmen
Sally with one hand still held firmly
over her companions mouth waited
with every sense alert
Theyve clrqled us whispered oneI
and the sound of the crumpling leaves
announced at least a temporary relief
for the freshman When the sounds

carefully from the bushes dragging
her friend limp and distracted with

jior the farm now before they come
back Argument having failed Sally
tried to carry her friend by main torcei
Quick she urged Theyre coming
The returning footsteps only made
the timid vice president more stolid
M cant move she moaned
Suddenly the figure of a sophomore
apjaing from behind the shadows of
Jbo trees Julia started to scream
Silence commanded tho sopho
more In mock solemnity
The plucky little freshman president
I lot go her hold on her helpless friend
dodged the attempted grasp of a sec
ond sophomore who had appeared on
the steno nnd ran with a sure foot and
d n steady pulse through tho dark grovo
toward the farm and the open country
Beyond Sho leaped skillfully over a

across the street and dashed through
I the campus gate into the protecting

Come today Sally Why Im a pro

wrung her hands with Impatience
Stephen you are so Inconsiderate
You ought to have known that Id want

You can Jolly well change your
mind about my persistence Sally
Whhe clutched hIs hands helpless

funny little laugh that made Stephen
wince Well Im sure 1 beg your par

The sound of the exasperating soph
omores urged Sally on Goodby Ste
phen she said but Stephen detained
her with an outstretched hand
Just once Sally he began Do
you want me to chuck the whole thing
and get away 1
Why no of course note she assur
ed him preoccupied with the sound of
the approaching voices She hurried
past I him and crouched down Then
with a sudden determination she whis

H turned and came back
Help me Stephen Sally whisper I
ed rising to her feet Theyre after
me the sophomores Youre not an In
structor now youre Just Stephen
Pleaseher hands clutched his arm
convulsively please get me to the

Stephen mindful of his own not far
dlstapt college days caught the sltua
tlpaln a flash Get down be com
manded Lie as flat as you can
Sally obeyed and Stephen threw his
ampleovercoat over ber Then bend
Ing down be began jo examine the
bark of a tree a few feet away
The sophomores completely mysti
fied by the sudden disappearance of
their prey and not daring to make
known the object of tbelr quest to a
professor hurried by I thought be
was the new English Instructor
Stephen beard one of the sophomores
exclaim but be seems to bo doing
botany experiments
Two minutes Inter Stephen left the
tree and came cautiously over to Sally
I guess I can dash down to tbe tea
room now suggested Sally from be
neatb tbe coat
Stephen had other plans Here
he ordered lifting ber up and tucking
her bands Into tbe sleeves of the over
coat Can you tie your hair down
so that It will go Into my hatV And
while Sally worked with sure augers
pinning down ber disheveled hair the
Instructor began unlacing his heavy
The coat Is long enough to cover
your dress and tbe collar turned up
will come to your ears and tbe bat
pulled down will cover your forebead
Sit down a second while 1 fasten these
over your shoes You can walk a little
way with the two pairs I fancy
Tbe shoes fastened and tbe hat
drawn down Sally Jumped to ber feet
with a thrill of victory nnd without
stopping to consider tbe plight of the
bootless Stephen hurried bravely on
to the banquet and slouched past the
exasperated sophomores like some I
weary tramp
The next day curiosity was rife
How on earth did SullY Iurdon

In vain for the name of the one who

He Had a Hal Life In the Early Days
When a boy entered the unval
Irservice of the United States in the
1clnjs following the war of the Rev
olution the highest rank obtainable
was that of captain and he had
to pass through what R Macdon
ougli in the Life of Commodore
Thomas Mucdonough U S Navy
describes as eta laborious and dan
gerous minority or apprenticeship
before securing the coveted prize
In those days our midshipmens
lines were not cnst in pleasant
plncps nor were their paths tho
pathsof peace Although Uthe
wards and children of the public
is they called themselves little or
iio attention scorns to have been
paid to their physical mental or
moral welfare
They picked up on board ship as
lest they could the technical edu
cation necessary to fit them for their
profession A Although ship school
masters were mentioned in connec
tion with the service there were few
of them There was no exacting eti
quette no rigid courtesy Instead
there was the rude discipline of the
merchantman transferred to a man
nCwllra discipline often enforced
by intemperate nnd abusive lan
guage and occasionally by blows
So great were the exactions
wrote Admiral Porter in his Me
moirs of Commodore David Porter
and so unceasing the strain on a
boys nervous temperament that
only the most rugged and deter
mined could remain in the service
for any great length of time
In 1800 when Midshipman Mac
donough afterward the hero and
commander of the naval force on
Lake Champlain at the beginning of
the war of 1812 entered the serv
ice he drew 19 a month in pay und
was entitled to one ration a day
This on Sunday consisted of a
pound ana half of beef and half
a pint of rice on Monday a pound
of pork half a pint of beans or peas
four ounces of cheese Tuesday a
pound and a half of beef a pound
of potatoes or turnips pudding
Wednesday two ounces of butter or
six ounces of molasses four ounces
of cheese half u pint of rice Thurs
aya pound of pork halfa pint of
peas or beans Friday a pound of
salt fish two ounces of butter or
one gill of oila pound of orI
Saturday a pound of pork half a
pintof peas or beans four ounces of I
cheese and every day a pound of
The value of this ration was 28
cents It was changed later by act
of congress March 3 1801 to a ra
tion of a value of 20 cents
When Midshipman Macdonough
he was sixteen when he entered the
service appeared in full dress uni
form he wore a coat of blue cloth
with short lapels faced with the
same and ornamented with six but
tons standing collar with a dia
mond formed of gold lace on each
side not exceeding two inches
square slashed sleeves with small
buttons all buttonholes worked with
gold thread single breasted blue
vest with flaps no buttons to the
pockets blue or white breeches
gold laced cocked hat shoes with
buckles and a hanger
When in undress uniform he wore
a short blue coat without worked
buttonholes and having n standing
collar with a button and a slip of
gold lace on each side Dirks were
not to be worn on shore by any of
ficer This was the uniform prescribed
by the navy department under Rob I
ert Smith secretary of the navy
from 1801 to 1809
The Value of Charcoal
Charcoal has great value as an
antiseptic Smoked ham will keep
for years packed in charcoal A few
lumps of it in a cistern will keep
tho water pure and sweet A quan
tity of it in a cellar will absorb the
odors and n small lump boiled with
cabbage or onions will do the same
Butter put into small vessels com
pletely surrounded with charcoal
will keep sweet a long time A
paste of powdered charcoal and
honey makes n good dentifrice It
not only cleans the teeth but dis
infects them and sweetens the
breath Taken inwardly it is good
for the digestion and relieves con
