Grauel Asparagus In selecting asparagus, give prefer-j ence to slender, bright green stalks that feel crisp and cool to the touch. < are must be giveu to cleansing the spikes, for often they are full of grit; if at all wilted or it' time must elapse before the vegetable is cooked, tney may be washed in cold salted water and: wrapped in wet brown paper. Like all vegetables, asparagus should be cooked as soon after gathering as possible. The asparagus tips are the dainty, fine tasting parts, and as they cook very quickly the following [dan is good: After washing the stalks with a soft, brush and much water, tie them in I bunches with the heads together andl the ends even. Set the bunches, tips up, in a deep sauce pan, and pour on] enough boiling salted water to almost cover the bunch and cook fifteen min utes. By keeping the bunches upright in this way the tender tops are steamed and the thick stalks are boiled. Asparagus is serveir on hot. well but tered toast with or' without sauce. It is also served in souffle, in omelette, and with a dressing of hot vinegar and butter, but however it n]»pears finally, it must first be boiled as directed. Asparagus mold is a handsome gar nish for planked meats: Cook and drain the plant and cut it in short lengths and place in small buttered molds with al ternate layers of green peas. Let the : last layer be of peas and hard boiled ( eggs, the latter being pressed through ' a sieve. Cover with a rich, plain white f sauce and steam in a pan of water in a hot oven forty minutes. After the meat I is planked, invert the molds around it ' and the garnish will come out smoothly, r Duchess potatoes or steamed carrot i Purity of Products and Cleanliness of Manufacture are operative principles in the production of the Beer and Ale make by our MASTER BREWER DOEHNE BREWERY Bell 82flL Order It Independent 318 I rings may be used if an elaborately I 1 trimmed plank is desired.

"She bns been discussing them with rae." T have no recollection of what I said ' as ! stalked out of the room.

Unexpectedly I met Britton: "Britton. what's all this gossip 1 hear j going the rounds of the castle behind my bnck?" I exclaimed. Confound him, lie looked pleased!; "It's quite tpie. sir: quite true." "Quite true!" I roared. "What's quite true, sir?" "Isn't it. sir?" he asked, dismayed. "Isn't what?"

Who put It Into that confounded head of yours that I am—er—ln love with the countess? Speak! Who did! It?" I lie lowered his voice, presumably be- ! cause I had dropped mine to a very ] Joud whisper. I also had glanced over both shoulders. "Begging your pardon, sir, but I j must be honest, sir. It was you as llrst put it into my 'end. sir." "I?" My face went the color of a cardinal's cap.

"Yes, sir," he responded, "That wil 1 ; do, you says." | "Ahem! I—ahem!" Five minutes later I was at her door] my heart in my mouth. A sudden, | inexplicable form of panic took pos ! session of me. After some deliberation I came to a decision. The proper thing for me tc; 1 do was to show all of them that theit J ridiculous suspicious vuge wrong. Res- j i oiuteiy 1 marched downstairs. For some two long and extremely' monotonous days 1 toiled. 1 could not• ; deny to myself that 1 was missing 1 those pleasant hours with the countess. I 1 did miss them. 1 missed Kosemary; ami Jiuko and Helen Marie Louise An toinette and Blake. Blatcbford came to the door. "A note for you, sir, if you please." j said he. He was holding the salver \ I almost on a level with Ids nose. My heart —my incomprehensible I heart—gave a leap that sent the blood | rushing to my face. "Thank you, Blatcbford; that will' do." "1 b(% your pardon, sir. but there is to be an answer." "Oh!" said I. I tore open the envelope. I managed to dash off a brief note In a fairly nonchalant manner. Blatch ford almost committed the unpardon able crime of slamming the door be-' hind he was in such a hurry to be off with tile message. Then I went over and stood above ; Mr. I'oopcndyke. "Mr. Poopendyke," said I slowly, darkly, "what do you know about those violets?" He quailed. "1 hope you don't mind. Mr. Smart, it's ail right. 1 put one of your cards in so that there couldn't be any mistake." Halfway up the winding stairways II paused in some astonishment. It had just occurred to me that I was goiug up the steps two at a time and that; my heart was beating like mad. 1 reflected. Here was I racing along like a schoolboy, and for what? What occasion was there for such unseemly haste? In the iirst place, it was nowi but a few minutes after 11. and she! had asked me for luncheon. There was! no getting around that. At best lunch eon was two hours off. So why was I galloping like this? The series of self Inflicted questions found me utterly unprepared. I couldn't answer one of them. After ten minutes of serious, undis-! tnrbed consideration of the matter 1 came to the final conclusion that it : was not love, but pity, that had driven rae to such abnormal activity. It was nonsense to even nrgue the point. For nn hour and a half by my watch, j but five or six by my nerves. I paced the lonely, sequestered halls in the lower regions of the castle. Two or three times I was sure that my watch 1 hud stopped, the hands seemed so sta tionary. The third time t tried tc' , wind It I broke the mainspring, but as ; | it was nearly 1 o'clock not much harm was done. That one little sentence. "Have you ; . deserted me?" grew to be a voluminous | j indictment. I could think of nothing else There wns something ineffably sad and pathetic about it. Had she been unhappy because of m.v beastly behavior? At last I approached her door. Upon uiy soul, my legs were trembling! I experienced a silly sensation of rear. I hesitated: then, plucking up my cour age and putting all silly questions be hind me, 1 rapped resouudingly on the door. The excellent Hawkes opened It. I started back in dismay. He stood aside impassively. "Mr. Smart!" lie announced. 1 caught sight of the countess. She was arranging some (lowers on the ta bic. Hlatchford was placing the knives and forks. Helen Marie I.ouis An toinette stood beside her mistress hold ing a box of flowers in her hands. What was it that I had been think ing out there in those gloomy halls? That she would greet me with a pathetic, hurt look and— I Came to the Final Conclusion That It Wai Not Love, but Pity. "Good morning!" she cried gnyly. Hurt? Pathetic? She was radiant) "So glad to see you again. Hawkei has told me how busy you've been." "Awfully, awfully busy." 1 murmur ed. Was it relief at finding her sc happy and unconcerned that swept through me? lam morally but shame lessly certain it wasn't. "Don't you think the roses are lovely in that old silver bowl?" "Exquisite!" "Blatchford found it in the plate vault.'" she said, standing off to admire the effect. "Do you mind if i go on arranging them?" she asked, and with out waiting for an answer resumed her employment. "Uou jour, m'sieur," said Helen Ma rie Louise Antoinette over her mis tress' shoulder. One never knows whether a French maid Is polite or merely spiteful. "It seems ages since I saw you last," said the countess in a matter of fact tone, jiggling a rose into positiou and then standing off to study the effect, her head cocked prettily at an angle of inquiry. It suddenly occurred to me that she bad got on very well without me dur ing the ages. The discovery irritated me. She was not behaving at all as I had expected. "There liasu't been a great deal of news." I said. She dropped a long stemmed rose and waited for me to pick it up. "Thank you," she said. "Oh. did It prick you?" "Yes." said 1 flatly. Then we both gave the closest attention to the end of my thumb, while t triumphantly squeezed a tiny drop of blood out of it. I sucked It. The incident was! closed. She was no longer interested in the laceration. "So you thought 1 had deserted you?" I said, and was a little surprised at the grttffness in my voice. "The violets appeased me." she said, with a smile. For the first time 1 no ticed that Rite was wearing a large | bunch of them. "You will be bank-i rupt. Mr. Smart, If you keep ou buying roses and violets and orchids for me." So the roses were mine also! 1 shot; a swift glance at the mantelpiece. Ir- 1 reslstibly moved by some mysterious force. There were two bowls of or chids there. "But they are lovely!" she cried, not ing the expression in my face anil mis construing It. "You are an angel." That was the last straw. "I am nothing of the sort!" 1 exclaimed, very hot and uncomfortable. "You are." was her retort. "There! isn't It a lovely centerpiece? Now, you must come and see Rosemary. She adores the new elephant you sent to her." "Ele"— I began, blinking my eyes. "Oh—oh. yes. yes! Ha. ha! The ele phant!" Good heavens! Had that idiotic Poopendyke started a menage rie in my castle? I was vastly relieved to find that the elephant was made of felt and not too large to keep Rosemary from wielding It skillfully in an assault upon the hap less Jinko. CHAPTER XVI. The Count and Herr Schwartzmuller. OtJR luncheon was not as gay nor as unconventional as oth ers that had preceded It. The countess vainly tried to make it as sprightly as Its predeces sors. but gave over in despair in the face of my taciturnity. Her spirits drooped. She became strangely un easy and. I thought, preoccupied. "Wlmt is ou your mind, countess?" I asked rather gruffly, after a painful silence of some duration. She regarded me fixedly for a mo ment She seemed to be searching i my thoughts. "Yoil,' she said very succinctly. "Why are you so quiet, so funereal?" I observed a faint tinge of red in her cheeks and an ominous steadiness In her gaze. Was there an ger also? I apologized for my manners and as sured her that my work was respon sible. \\ ou Id 1 come to see her t lie next day? "Rut don't think of coming. Mr. Smart." she declared, "if you feel yon canuot spare the time away from your work." "My dear countess." I exclaimAl, dis playing a livelier Interest than at any time before. "I shall be delighted to come. Permit me to add that my work may go hang." Her face brightened. "Rut men must work." she objected. "Not wheu women are willing to piny."
