As the pineapple season approaches n.any a housekeeper would like to pre serve this delightful fruit, but are Ig norant of a sure method of canning. If the following rulea are adhered to, pineapple may be served in perfect condition all next winter. Select ma ture but perfectly sound fruit, remove "eyes" with scissors and peel with a silver knife. Cut Into slices one-third of an inch In thickness. Place In lay ers In a porcelain lined vessel. Over each layer sprinkle a tablcspoonful of granulated sugar. Continue until ves sel is half full. Pour in one cupful of boiling water, cover, place on lire, and bring tdowly to a boil, Mlrring so that each fdice la evenly heated. Roll for five minutes. Thoroughly sterlli;'.e Klafs Jars, lids, and rubber with boil ing water. Dip the pineapple Into the cana and fill to the top with the Juice. Slip rubbers In and screw on the lids tightly.

Oatmeal Is a safe remedy for soiled suede gloves in white, pale tan or gray shades. To clean the rIovcs draw them on and plunge the bands In a small basin of oatmeal, rubbing them well, especially the finger tips, the knuekleH and wrists with the meal, and scrubbing the more Milled portions with a clean nail brush. Finally, they rhoiild be dusted with a piece of jioft llatuiel. Wash leather gloves require yellow soap ami water, the latter warm but not too hot. They should be dried on the lianas or on wooden trees. In the sun or close to the fire. Like flan nels, the quicker they dry the better. Banana Whip. AV'hen a change Is wanted for des sert, try banana whip. Peel the ba nanas and scrape off the coarse thread and press the pulp through a sieve. Add sugar and lemon Juice to suit taste und serve in glasses, i if "iTiis chiinge-seems feasible I have in store for you a far higher otlice than the one you hold now." Rollins glanced about the room with contempt. "1 do not wunt It," ho de clared, "nor do I wish to bo taken any further Into your confidence. Any system of government which necda to bo supported by force else why the enormous standing army you ure novr accMmulatlng muat result in oppres sion, tyranny and ultimate failure. I know now that any change In govern ment which you would propose would be a retrogression, and for my part 1 hall resist every such change, even to the minutest degree, with every atom of my will, with every breath of ray voire, with every drop of blood In ray liody!" 'Precisely why I want you with ua.M returned Kelvin with the remarkable patience possessed only by men of one dominating idea to which everything ; Ise Is subservient. "I like your prin ciples and tho way you present them, but 1 hope yet to show you why, not from the self Interest, but from hu manitarian motives, you should ap prove the course 1 propose. I'll talk with you again about this. In the meantime Is there nothing I can do for you in the way of appointments or omething of the sort?" -Nothing whatever," said Rollins ibortly and left the room. fie was then followed Immediately ty Herbert Rensselaer, on whom a year of office as secretary of war had wrought wonderful maturity. 'Hello. ' Phillip the First," said he, advancing to the desk and shaking hands heartily with Kelvin. "I wish you wouldn't uso that form of address," protested Phillip quietly. "You might say it in the wrong place. How goes the enrollment?" "Splendidly," returned Rensselaer with enthusiasm. "The army of the unemployed is rapidly becoming the army of the republic. The increase of my enlistment is almost in exact proportion to the decrease in industry, almost In exact proportion to the In crease in riots, and our recruiting sta tions are really busier places than the bread stations. Kelvin, today you nro commander in chief of an army of J nearly half n million men." "And still we have not enough," de clared Kelvin. "I must have the lar gest army In the world." lie was not addressing Rensselaer now, but him self; lost in vast speculation, bo felt Into musing Bllence. "Ry the way, old chnp." ventured Rensselaer presently, "I'd like to speak "X MUST niVBTBB LA HO EST ARMY IM THR WORLD. ' with you about a rather delicate mat ter. It's about Miss Ilreed. Kr now don't take this amiss, rhlll are you contemplating anything serious lu that direction'." Kelvin was silent for so long that Herliert began to think he had not beard, but presently be answered, "Nothing whatever." "Sure?" Herbert asked. "Absolutely," Kelvin replied. Thank you," said Herbert slowly. "Rather a caddish question, I know, rhill, but between us" He, too, laps ed into troubled silence. Kelvin seemed to be about to say something more, but be did not. "Sam, do you think that in a fight I could rely on your brother reavy as I could on you?" asked, Kelvin as he was dressing for dinner that night. "'Peed, Ah doan' know, sah," an swered Sam, putting the studs in Phil lip's shirt. "He's kin' o' no 'count, anyhow. Ah doan' reckon Ah'd place too much Minnce on reavy in n pinch." "Well, we'll keep hlra for bis looks then," said . Kelvin, laughing. "You want to be careful, though, that ho doesn't steal Lucy from you." "Lucy! Huh!" grunted Sam, brush ing tho last speck of dust from Kel vin's pumps. "Ef that wuthless coon even tuhns up the whites o' his eyes t'wahd Lucy, Ah's goan t' breck ev'y bone in his body, lleh heh! Lucy!" and Sam grinned. "You don't want to be too sure, Sam," cautioned Kelvin. "Io you think you could whip him?" "Whip 'm!" repeated Sara. "Why, Mlatuh Phillip, wld them two han's Ah kin lick ary man in all this worn" Kelvin, however, tiring of tho ban ter, had strayed to the table in tho corner of his dressing room, whero lay spread out an utllno map of the United States, with figures here and there contiguous to largo cities so many troops massed here, so many there, so many in that other place, at stations scattered thickly from coast to coast and from lakes to gulf, grand total so many. He nodded his head In satisfaction, sweeping his eyo over his diagram. The llttlo points upon his map were raiments of stalwart men clad in the khaki of tho United States government. He could bear the tramp of their feet, tho click of their guns, tho clank of their sabers. Tho ground shook under their rhythmic tread, while nations heard and trem bled. And these, nil these, wero of his dominion! 'An insatiate ambition had taken liOKsesslon of him. It had always been there, he realized now, but It had grown with his years and his op jrHrtunItIca.

At tho porte cochero bo found wnlt Ing a limousine, with nn open enr be fore and behind It, each of these ex tra cars carrying four silent and alert mctutiers of tho secret service, reavy already sat les!de the chauffeur of tho limousine, and Sam followed Kel vin into it, upou which all three of tho nutos moved away. Just beyond Du pont circle they were delayed by n congestion of carriages, and Kelvin raw Elsie White in tho doorway of tho house occupied by Rollins and hi mother. Elsie was now Mrs. Rollins' companion. She had loved him. this girl; loved him, ho knew, with an un selfish heart ever since ho had lcen u penniless prospector years before; loved him yet, ho was sure, and he had neglected this gift, had thrown it away. She wn talking to her father and Ceorgo Rlngg. Kelvin from within his closed rnr w While start awny with Rlagg and Elslo apparently striv ing to coax him back. She even came out to the edge of the walk and put bcr hand upon his arm. Blags, how ever, stepped roughly between tliem and. taking White's arm, walked awny with him. Kelvin stoppod before n mngnifioent residence recently vacated by a noto rious railroad senator who had uot been "found available," and, leaving his secret service men at the door, Kelvin found awaiting him in the garishly decorated library Henry Rreed. The old man seemed shrunken since Kelvin had last seen him, and his bald bead exhibited n slight tend ency to nod rhythmically. "Well, how goes It, my boy?" ho nsked In his senllo old voice, rubbing bis withered hands together. "Reyond our expectations. I think," replied Kelvin. "Tho country Is com ing to exactly that state of chnns where it can bo handled. There is not n city nor a village) but Is in a state of turmoil and panic and ready for anything Just so It Is a change. The enlistment is , proceeding even more rapidly thnn I had hoped. Within three months more I shall have the largest and most efficient army ever placed under tho control of one man." "Excellent!" said P.reed. "Excellent! And then. Kelvin, things must be set tled very quickly, very quickly In deed. My ensh supply is not increas ing. It stands now but a trifle over a billion and n half. Why, even the gov ernment could, if it chose, control nearly as much cash as I can. This unsettled condition, of. course, is a mentis to nn end. but in tho menntlmo It is very bad for business, very bad." "I don't think we'll attempt to ac cumulate much more cash for a long time," announced Kelvin. "In fact. I think that after things are settled down we'll let go of some of It." "Let go of It!" protested Rreed. be coming Instantly excited. "Impossible, impossible! Why, the very force ttint has mnde us is locked up in that im pregnable vault beneath my cellar at Forest Lakes! And would you destroy this tremendous dynamo by weaken ing It?" "No."-said Phillip dryly. "I do not aim to destroy it. I only aim to use it. I can guarantee you th.it I shall pro pose nothing that would lessen my own grasp of public affnlrs." Rreed was thoughtful for a moment, and then he chuckled and nodded his hend voluntarily, his parchment like face breaking into leathern wrinkles. "I guess you are right, my iio.v." he admitted. "I haven't seen you do any thing yet that would lessen your own power, nor mine." ho added, "nor mine. You have loon doing wonder fully well. Phillip wonderfully well. Rut come with me; I have a siirprt for you." Up Into his own suit ho led Kelvin, and from the bottom of one of Ms trunks be took a heavy robe of car mine velvet and ermine, with childish delight drawing its luxurious folds around his tall and stooping body. From tho hat box of his trunk he took a wonderful creation in gold and Jew els and set it upon his head. n brought forth a roil of polished ebony tipped with gold and set with ens huge, glittering diamond In its end. then stood, half simpering, before Kel vin, occoutered royally with robe and scepter and crown. These baubles seemed to change, the current of Rreed'H thought. "The Lord's onolnted," he quavered, holding forth his scepter In an un steady hand. "Mino Is the rpoW hand to chastise my peoplo for their follies and their Ingratitude. Mine is the hand to humble them. Mine is thft hand to set them anew in tho rntha of penco and plenty." "It Is a very handsome outfit and must havo cost a fortune," commented Kelvin briskly. "You don't want to keep them here, however." "No," agreed Rreed. "I only wanted to show them to you. I Just got them today to-to have them handy when tho time cornea, you know." Ho sunk bis voice hero to a whisper. liad intended to lake them to Forest Iakcs," he went on, "but-but vce might want, them suddenly, and " Just put them nway here." Ho took n big suit case from a closet and hurriedly packed the expensive gauds Into it. "Ry the way, Phillip," Mid he in n unusually wheedling tone, ''how mica money have you with you?" "I don't know," returned Kelvin, a trifle surprised. "A HtUe over hun dred. I think." , "You won't need It tonight, I n sure," said Rreed. "I have need for llttlo ready casl. Just a little read casU" t. unit lie took tho money eagerly counted it over and over. "One hundred and fourteen f0'1""' said he, stuffing it deeply ta "JJ pocket.
