Nolan drew a deep breath and, cllnchinj,' his lists at his sides, replied to Ida arch foe of twelve years before: "He'll be a more dangerous agitator from now on. I'm Jerry IMnn!" CHAPTER. IV. EG InF declaration of the new owner of the Advance that lie was no less a pcrsonace than the blacklist victim of years back created the sensation that would a cannon shot In the dreamy solitude of the sylvan dells of Arcady. Dupuy foil back as though struck by g violent blow. And. indeed, he and his Interests would have every reason to believe, he now know full well, that they had in nil truth a now enemy to combat, an enemy Hint would cost them dearly if ho were to bo van quished. "You you are Jerry Dolan, and you own the Advance:" the lawyer cried chokingly. "What are we coming to next?" ho finally managed to say after ft desperate effort to calm himself. Jerry Nolan, for none other than the old time strike leader it was. enriched by bis mining operations in the rock ribbed Nevada hills, thrilled with the realization that he was now In a posi tion to strike terror into the hearts and souls of those who had attempted to destroy him and his loved ones. lie know that lie had in his power the men who had almost succeeded in their designs against him twelve years bo fore. McHenry. at first even more puzzled than Dnpny and who was bending for ward, with an expression of deepest interest and concern implanted on hit features, began to understand the sit uation more clearly when ho heard his new employer say hi a voice that pul sated with determination: 'Yes, Ed Dupuy, I am Jerry Dolan, nnd I am back in the old town to pay my respects to my friends and and"--his voice shock "to ray enemies." The wholo truth now dawned upon tho naiazed McHenry and also upon Dupuy, who had been dealing with men long enough to know that his only successful pose at the present momentous time would bo a concilia tory one. He munt at nil hazards smooth over this dangerous factor in the city's affairs, the returned Jerry Dolan, ind persuade him that he was .now his friend. 'Well, well," Dupuy bt-ssa Ingrati atingly, simulating a sickly smile, "this is a most interesting meeting mope interesting, indeed." Ho laughed as loudly an tho nervously contracting muscles of Ills throat would permit. "But It is time now to let bygones be bygones, ch, lfr.nr ah" He ngnin thrust forward the hand that the cewspanor proprietor had refused to crasp. "Nolan." answered the newcomer in hi deep, strong voice, "N-o-l n-n, with mi 'N" and not a 'D' on the front end of It. That's my name now. I had to change it." Mo stoppd abruptly and igain directed his dark eyes uienao higly on the face of the man opposite Mm. After afuw moments he contin j.d: "You see, Ed Dupuy, I wrb laeklisted as Dolan. likely you'll emenibcr that too.'!- Nolan reached out and, seizing Du puy'a hand, held It firmly. McHenry. it ono side, witnessed with :i distinct ihoek what ho understood 33 Nolan's raddon resolve lo, as Dupuy had sug gested, let "hygoncB bo bygones," elso Why should he shake liand.i with tho man? Dupuy also felt n thrill of pleas ure, even of triumph, as the one time jlialrraan of Hip Street Railway Work K3' anion warmly shook his hand. Dupuy smiled nnd, bowing pleasantly, fssayed to withdraw Ida hand from K'olun'H srlp nnd step away. 3ut his rau turned to a wrinkled contraction Df hi facial muscles, Indicating tcutost pain.

At the moment when he felt that he must scream in his pain or else crlnglngly plead for mercy Nolan'a grip partially relaxed, and be swung Dupuy to one ; Hide. A grim smile made lis way Into the furrows, won by suiTerlm? and prl- Vatlon in tho Nevada iniulns camps i;id desolate gold regions, that mark 'd NoI:i'm visage. "You ee, I'm stronger than you now, Ed Dupuy, Just as you was stronger i than tue twelve ye.irs ago yon and I'.artelmy between you." A great sigh escaped him as hu tllilshed. Dupuy. now having freed his hand, rubbed it smartly with tho other to restore the circulation to the flattened veins. He wheeled away to pick up lily overcoat. Nolan now addressed Mc-nenry, ho hud seated himself at his desU. "You're the managing editor?" "Yes, sir." : "Well, 1 just want to tell you that that was a true article you had about ' that old hypocrite. Judge Bartelmy. ! this morning." he stated to McHenry. "Have another himorrow and strong' er." Another Idea came to him. and' he added. "Who was It got up that ! ono today?" , Dupuy felt that he must come to Mc Henry's rescue. j "A young man who has since resign-! ed," he interjected for the managing ' editor. Both McHenry and Dupuy' were crowing uneasy at the trend of j Nolan's thoughts and words. A , glimpse Into tt- crantums of themj both at this moment would have re vealed the same thought to be pre dominating: "What Is he driving atV" j Nolan nppeared distinctly surpvlsedi at two things first, that the writer of I the story had resigned; second, that! Dupuy should be so familiar with the matter. He took a step toward the latter. "Heslgned?" he asked in reverberat ing tones. "How do you know'-" Be fore Dupuy could answer Nolan wheel ed on McHenry. "Is it so, what Dupuy says?" he asked of the managing ed itor. "Yes. sir." . 4 ,s "Whnl's his name?" 'WiVv "Wheeler Brand." "What did he resign for?" "Some of the big advertisers forced him to," admitted McHenry calmly. 1 A look of understanding tlltted , across Nolan's face. He shifted his glance from McHenry to Dupuy. Then, with a significant smile, be said: ! "1 see you are still on the Job. Ed Dupuy." "Well, It's business" began the lob byist defiantly. But Nolan would not listen to bitn. Thoughts vastly more important than conjecture as to Du- puy's motives now crowded his brain. "Where is Brand now?" he asked sternly of McHenry. "I think he is in the local room now, , sir," pointing to thp door at his left. ' I The new proprietor strode Impulsive-, , ly to the doorway and called at the, top pitch of bin powerful voice: t "Wheeler Brand: Wheeler Brand'" As he had hurried from tho manag ing editor's room after his dismissal from the Advance Wheeler Brand (itmggled valiantly against a wave of discouragement that assailed him nnd , for a moment or two threatened to overwhelm. "Discharged for 'beating' the town on tho story of the year." he muttered. "Well. I'll try to get on across tho street." be concluded, "across the street" meaning the Guard ian, the bitter rival of the Advance, i He went to ono of the long oak table? In the city room, where he seated hlmnelf next tu Higgltis. tho leading police reporter of tho paper, and be gan nervously to finish the story of a now bank merger on which ho had 1 been working when summoned by Mc-1 Henry. When he finished be laid tho pages of copy on the city editor's desk. ' He dragged a chair to a window, sat I down und gazed moodily down nt tho crowds of people hurrying along tho itreet below. It was not his dismissal from the staff which chiefly concerned him. Ho was certain of obtaining another posi tion. In fact, bis reputation along 1 Newspaper row was such, and ho felt Justifiable pride nt the thought, that ho would be at wovk within twen ty minutes after leaving the Advance efllco if he ao desired. But what did t'ceupy bin mind to the exclusion of al most everything else was tho consid eration of what view ;udlth Bartelmy would take when she heard the news ! of his dismissal. She had warned him that In? was sacrificing his futurn in ' his attacks ou the powers that be. Undoubtedly now she would be con vinced, as some of his friends had al ready endeavored to convince lier, that, nfter all, be was a fanatic, an impractical dreamer, who could not accomplish his ambition to rL'tit what ho believed to bo great wrongs, who could not, moreover, escape summary dismissal from his paper. But he must go on. He would go on. He would go that very night to a news paper that would not suppress uor qualify tho truth, one that would not distort facts nor misrepresent a sit uation lo order to deceive tue public, to whlcA It was Its duty to Rive the truth. Yes, and be would show the big thieves of tbt city that even if they nmnaged to remain superior to the law at least they could uot remain superior to public opinion. The time ESTATE bad come when j "Wheeler Brand! Wheeler Brand!" I The voice of Nolan came to his curs above the ticking of the telegraph in struments mid the clicking of type ; writer keys. Brand stnrted from his f seat. Ho did not recognise the volco, nor did any one el.ie In the smoky city room, as curlouu upraised faces around him testified. It earn: from the man asiiis editor's room, however, so be hastened to ispnml. wondering what I It co-.ild I'.ie.ui. Brand entered McFIonry's otllceaud faced the three men. hi surprise In creasing as be saw from the attitudes uf McHenry nnd Dupuy that a huge, rawboned, bnured faced stranger ap parently dominated the situation. "Ycr,?" said Brand inquiringly to , tiie stranger, whom he placed as Mm owner of the voice. bec:iue he knew It had not been McUenr.v's or Du puy's. i "I am Nolan, the new owner." greet I ed the stranger. Brand stepped forward and offered his hand, which Nolan grasped "How do you do. Mr. Nolan?" the reporter greeted him, endeavoring to figure Just what the mysterious pro ceeding portended. Nolan went straight to the point "So you've been fired for that Bar telmy article, have you?" be asked. "Yes. sir." Nolan turned nnd shot a triumphant glare at McHenry and Dupuy. Then "From note oti you ill licrc." he caused the blood to rush almost bllndlngly into the bead of the young reporter when be swung around, grasped Brand's arm. drew him over to tiie managing editor's chair, beside which that ufficl.il was standing, and said. "Well. I've got another Job for you." Nolan put both hands on Brand's shoulders and by main strength forced him down heavily Into the chair. "From now on you sit here," he announced. "You're manag ing editor now." CHAPTER V. YEAR passed slneo the event ful night for Wheeler Brand when Nolan made him man aging editor of the Advance. Iu those months Brand made a showing with the paper that was never droit til ed of by the owners preceding as being within the range of possibility. Made absolute master of the paper and con sequently dictator of Its policy, tho youug man set a paco that tho paper's rivals found difficult to equal, much less to outstrip. His exposure of tho Hcandals In the exclusive world of high life insurance finance hns thus far proved the most vital reform of Ms administration. Asa result of this crusade, which drove a half dozen leading ofiiclals from almost as many lonipanles. the president of the United States tated publicly that "the vast ife lusurauco business of this country :a now on the soundest firmnclnl basis It has over had." But Whoeler Brand lu the press of stirring events had not forgotten Judge Bartelmy. In fact, certain activities of that estimable Individual vtero just oow under close scrutiny by tho one time reporter, who, if hu could bo pre vailed on to ttpeak concerning It, might possibly observe mat the Judge wus very soon to have an opportunity to make n few explanations which would be received with undoubted in. terest by the public. The young edi tor's suit for the hand of Judith Bar telmy might be said, since wo are dealing with a Judge's nmlly. to be In statu quo. She was still waiting for him "to become sane." as blio find ex pressed herself to blin. A girl of lofty principles and of decided strength of character, she could not see his duty from his viewpoint. Perhaps It was all quite natural, quite womanly, quite daughterly, that a lie should subscribe absolutely to her futber's side In tho nionienlous case ot "JUD1' BAR TELJIY VEUSIJK THE I'KOI'LE. WHEELER BRAND AND THE AD VANCE." She was loynl to her father, nnd sbe was trying to be loyal to her lover, and the task was becoming inr' nni more dllllenlt. Yet she waited, and Wheeler Brand waited, and each pray ed that the other would end the ordeal and heal two breaking hcarK Today we tlnd Wheeler Brand pro ceeding toward the luxurious Nolan home on a fashionable residential thor oughfare to visit the proprietor of the paper to hand him n statement ot tho Advance's progress, to discuss mat tors of editorial policy and to confer regarding a certain development con cerning Judge Bartelmy. At tho Nolan home u reception bad been announced, hundreds of Invita tions sent out. but the responses did not encourage Mrs. Nolan In her so clal iisplrsiiloiiij. Society passed her by. That was the whole story In brief. Sodety, us usual, was ever so much pleased u-lth Itself and was too busy to Include Mrs. Nolan. Phyllis and Sylvester In Its dlveir.lous. The husband and father cured very little for society, had no time lor It. but ho fondly loved the courageous, warm hearted woman who had uncomplain ingly shared with hltn the onerous hardships of his early days, and It was his desire to gratify her ambitions as well as thoe.nf hl. daughter. The fortune ho had packed from Nevada's flinty bosom enabled him to bo gener ous, and he mulled approvingly on ev ery new extra vag.mi e of Mrs. Michael Nolan. Therefore If she was socially ambitious nliu must have her way and be allowed to carry on her campaign for recognition In whatever fashion Khe chose. Certainly the home be had es tablished wa-.t a IHtlng vantage ground from which to wage a war of dollars against the precipitous embatt lemeiits with which the clty'it Knur Hundred had encircled lis camp. Palatial lu sl.e. the Nolan residence was equally palatial In Its furnWhlnpi. and only the magic word from the magic Hps of a single member ot the magic realm of "the aristocracy" was necessary to send monogramtned coaches In long Hues to the Nolan doors, to fill the cost- j ly rooms with distinguished faces, to till to overflowing with happiness the yearning heart of Mrs. Michael Nolan. But the word bad uot yet been spo ken. It was now late In the afternoon at the Nolan home. Phyllis walked across tho drawing room, irritation plainly marking her pretty pink and white face. The music of a string orchestra stationed In the conserva tory ceased. She addressed u servant who stood at attention at u door at the right which led to the dining room. "Pitcher," she said dlscotiragedly. "I don't think any ono else will come, so tell the musicians they can go." "Yes. Mls Phyllis." At this point Mrs. Nolan came storm ing In. carrying a huge bunch of hot house grapes In her hand. "Pitcher. I noticed those caterer men are drinking all the champagne, and 1 want It stopped." she ordered loudly. Pitcher bowed and went out. "It our guests won't coiue here to drink it. at least we will drink It our selves," Mrs. Nolan announced to I'hyl lq "Well, we have done It sent out -too curds, and who's been here that anybody wants to see? This Is the second lime we've gone to all this trouble rnd expense for untiling and nobody, .-slid if you'll take my advice it will be the last." "Mamma. Pitcher will hear." the girl protested. The mother bit a grape 'from the buueh. She deposited the skin and stouos In n Sevres vas'- on the marble mantel. (TO BE CONTINVED.) tiii: Miirni hoi,ix. iii:ais. SAM'i:. (Trem the New York Sun.)

A New England dairy farms are less profitable than they should be mainly: 1. Because of grass land mlmflnage mont, insufficient crop rotation, and ubiise of permanent meadows and pas ture'), 2. Because manure Is unlntelllsently used. B. nepresentattve Now England dairy men have corrected these faults. A successful Vermont cropping system comprises: 1. The short rotating of all available corn land thus: 1-4 to 1-3 In corn (silage and grain): (h) 1- to 1-3 In small frraln (hay nnd grain): (c) residue clover or clo vet mixed hay. ?. Care of permanent hay land by: (a) Frequent light top dressing with manure. (b) Addition of light clover seedlnp to sod. (c) Occasional replowlng and reseedlng when possible, preferably In midsummer without hny crop loss. S. Care of permanent pasture by: (a) Occasional top dressing (manure or chemicals) (b) Avoiding over grazing and too early spring grating. 1. IJght usage of manuro (10 or 1! spreader loads per acre) thus making: possible: (a) T-arger usage thereof by crop and lessened wastepe, (h) The manuring of a larger area an nually. (c) A shorter rotation, the manure be ing supplemented by clover sod on which to rnlsn corn. f These methods result in: 1. More dairy roughage per a"re. 2. More protein raised at home (early cut hay. clove-- hay, additional homo grown concentrate:,) and hence: ?,. I-ess expenditure for purchased uniins; n profit on raising as well as on feeding grain. 4. A more even distribution of labor throughout the year Instead of more help 1 i"sh in haying. MR. WIGGIN. Reasons. It Is the only way to detect the Star Hoarder. A cow In Vermont cannot he profitably kept If she produces less than Vfi lbs. of butter fat. The dairy cows of the Pnlted States average only H2 lbs. per year. How many like this In your herd? It enables a man to got two lbs. of cream where he got one before. To get two cow Into the hlda of one; lightens labor; lessens feed bills; Increases profits. It snves valuable time nnd feed because a man would certainly be 11 perverse sinner who would care for and feed an unprofitable cow. It eleva tes dairying from the humdrum of milk ing to the rank of a profession, a science, a husinefs conducted on ssfe, conserva tive t,uslne.-"s principles. It prompts the better care of stock, better feeding i i.-thods, better results, hence greater profits. It !s the only sure way to cull out th" robber and the thief, Imprlon the man who steals, It would le n money make to confiscate and de.-'roy the cow which l permitted to rob her owner ST. days tr. the year. Testlpp picks her out. It enables vou to discover If your separator is skimm ing clean. It helps you to keep tabs, mi tho creamery men') tests. It Increa ses the value of every cow, helfor, and calf you have, for sale ltt gratet advantage ir.ny be that It gets men to thinking nnd thinking along right lines. PROOF FROM Ot'R HERD.

Propagation by need Is productive of much variation; varieties of fruit almost never coma true; yarle tl'h of flowers and aeeda will generally do so. In view of the former fast, vege tative propagation l adapted ith fruit. There a to two mtthoda ot Belecttn plants (or propagation work: 1. Indlscrlmlnato selection; 2. Dlstrim- I Innte selection. Tho first Ii inoro com- j mon: the latter mom Intelligent. In per petuation by seeds the parental charac teristics are noted; but In vegetntlvo mul tiplication thero Is much negleot on this point. Plants aro very variable In rela tion to size, ciuallty, and productiveness.. It Is, therefore, assumed that parentage determine value of offspring. Some examples: 1, In potato selec tion, take tubers from high yielding hills, for hill not ttiher Is tho unit. 2. With tree fruits, take clons from productive and good quality branches or trees. .1. Among bush fruits, ylold, finality, nnd season should bo basis for selection. 4. With strawberries, pedlgroo plants are much preferred. Conclusion. Quality, productiveness, size and color seem to bo trnnamlssl blo. In propagation work It Is neces sary to know tho performance record of plants for several reasonr. Know ing this wo may proceed with intelli gence and profit. FORESTRY. Tho aeries of lectures on forestry contnlned the following: "Vermont Treei" by Htnte Forester A. T. Hawon and Henry Hall, "Nursery Planting" by Mr. Hall, "The Improvement of the Forest nnd Wood Lot" nnd "Timber Estimation." both by Mr. Howes. The demnontintion In forest nnd nursory management which was scheduled for the afternoon was not given. The principal address by Sir. Hawest was. In brief, as follows: THE IMPROVEMENT OF FOREST AND WOOD LOT. Thinning consists of removing a cettaln number of treea from the woods for the purpose of Improving the growth and1 character of remaining tiees and Is ono of tho chief measures recommended by tho foreater. Piunmg I tho removal of branches and in forestry work Ik seldom recommended. Trees are dependent upon r.oll for minerals which are taken up In the form of solutions. Supply of water Is more apt to be short than nilnerala. Some tiers as pine, can thrive on dryer nnd sandier soils Ihnn others, sucli na maple and beech, Best Indication of qual ity of soil for tree growth as to mineral nnd wnler content is height growth of tree. Figures In Penn. show average growth of while pine in R0 years, 6t feet on best soil; 10 feet poorest soil; nnd fi feet on medium soil. For forests of same age thero cm be. more trees per ncre on poor soil that on good soil, ns tres are smaller So number of tree per acre at any age nnd correct spacing of tree? varies with species and. soil. The minerals from the soil are com bined with carbon from the atmo sphere hy the action of sunlight on chlorophyll of the leaves. Trees vary in their demands for light. A tree In open with unlimited supply of mois ture and light will make faster diam eter growth than tree in forest be cnuse limbs extend to ground. The log of this trpe will be very knotty and much Inrger at base than top. Tree grown In tho forest is obliged to make good height' growth nt first In order to gain light. The lower branches are killed off by competi tion, resulting In logs free from knots. The wood material Is deposited In top of tree making the log cylindrical form. Mnln height growth Is made In first part of tree's life. In fully stock ed forests struggle for existence Is so severe that many trees are killed. Not only will one-half the trees be killed out within thirty years, but remaining trees have smaller development on ac count of struggle than they would have If properly thinned at right pe riod. Light thinning should be made whenever the wood to he removed has a sale value. Poorest klndn of trees nnd bad -pf.cmens nr.' taken out us- j ually one-third to one-fourth of stand ing wood. Frequent light thinnings are preferablo to infrequent heavy thinnings. Pruning of live lhnbs of conifers cannot be advised resulting black knot Is worse than knot from live limbs. If trees nre sufficiently close when young natural pruning will take place, In dense .stands of pine, spruce, cedar dead limbs often persist on the trunks and there can be no objection to knocking these off with club, al though little benefit from it. It Is not profitable to prune hardwoods but can be dono without damage to trees, preferably In summer. DAIRYMEN'S BANQUET. At 6:30 about 2.1 former students of the Vermont Dairy School gathered at Commons hall for their annual meet ing and banquet, B. D. White of tho dnlry division of the United States de partment of ngr'-ulture, Professor Washburn and Dean Hills were guests of the association, and ench made a thort address, Each member said a few words as to his. work s-lnco lie hnd left tho school. The Vermont Dairy School wns start ed nt the University In 1SH and ses sions have been held each winter sdnce, barring the two or three years prior to the erection of Morrill hall. Nearly S00 students have enrolled. THE EVENING SES.-'IO.V. The evening session wns nnn of espu cial interest, both be'caiibe of the char acter of the addresses and because of the fact that moving pictures were used to Illustrate one of them. Pro fessor Hills said thnt last night waa the first time that moving pictures hnd ever been used In New England for purposes of agricultural Instruction. The evening began at eight o'clock with an address on agricultural schools by D. J Crosby of the United Stntea department of agriculture. Mason S. Stone, State superintendent of educa tion, followed with a brief talk and then came B. D. White, also ef the United States department of agricul ture, with the moving pictures and a running lecture on agricultural prne ttces, Mr. Crosby snld, In part: AGRICULTURAL SCHOOLS. Instruction In ngrlrultura Is both educational and vocational.
