Perhaps no ether career tests the quality of womanhood so re
lentlessly as trained nursing. It calls for many qualities, spiritual and
physical. The reward is not large, and while many seek them, but few
are able to win the big prizes the service offers. Sidney Page, age
eighteen, is taken in at the hospital as a probation nurse through the
influence of young Dr. Max Wilson. The Pages—Sidney, her semi
invalid mother and her Aunt Harriet—had taken in K. LeMoyne, a
strange young man, as a roomer in order to help meet expenses. He's
very mysterious but charming, and Joe Drummond, Sidney's high
school sweetheart, becomes violently jealous. Immediately Sidney <
enters hospital service her threads of life begin to tangle. You get
^ first sight of this in the installment printed here.

"A little. It is warm."
"What are you going to do this eve

Lectures are over for the summer.
I shall go to prayers, and after that
to the roof for air.
"Can't you take a little ride tonight
and cool off? I'll have the car wherever

"Miss Gregg is coming I"
With an impassive face, the girl
turned away. The workers of the op
erating room surged between them.
But he was clever with the guile of
the pursuing male. Eyes of all on him,
he turned at the door of the wardrobe
room and spoke- to her over the heads
of a dozen nurses.
"That patient's address that I had
forgotten, Miss Harrison, is the cor
ner of the Park and Ellington avenue.
"Thank you."
She played the game well, was quite
calm. He admired her coolness. Cer
tainly she was pretty, and certainly,
too, she was interested in him. He
went whistling into the wardrobe

terne's eye, and there passed between
them a glance of complete comprehen
sion. The interne grinned.
The room was not empty. His broth
er was there, listening to the comments
of O'Hara, his friendly rival.
Good work, boy!" said O'Hara, and
clapped a hairy hand on his shoulder.
"That last case was a wonder. Pm
proud of you, and your brother here
is Indecently exalted. It was the Ed
wardes method, wasn't it? I saw it
doit; at his clinic in New York."
' "Glad you liked it. Yes. Edwardes
"was a pal of mine in Berlin. A great
surgeon, too, poor old chap !
'There aren't three men in the coun
try with the nerve and the band for it"
O'Hara went out, glowing with his
own magnanimity. Doctor Ed stood by
and waited while his brother got into
his clothes. He w r as rather silent.
There were many times when he
wished that their mother could have
jllved to see how he had carried out
his promise to "make a man of Max."
jSometimes he wondered what she
jwould think of his own untidy methods
(compared with Max's extravagant or

Jdog's collar in it, and other things. On
these occasions he always determined
to clear out the bag.
"I guess I'll be getting along," he
said. "Will you be home for dinner?"
"I think not. I'll—I'm going to run
out of town, and eat where It's cool."
The Street was notoriously hot ' In
summer.

They left the hospital together.
Everywhere the younger man received
the homage of success. The elevator
man bowed and flung the doors open,
with a smile; the pharmacy clerk, the
doorkeeper, even the convalescent pa

• Sidney, after her Involuntary bath in
the river, had gone into temporary
gclipse at the Whlté Springs hotel. In
the oven of the kitchen stove sat her
two small white shoes, stuffed with pa
per so that they might dry in shape.
Back in a detached laundry, a sympa
thetic maid was ironing various soft
white garments, and singing us she
worked.
Sidney sat in a rocking chair in
She was carefully
swathed in a sheet from neck to toes,
except for her arms, and she was being
as philosophic as possible.
Someone tapped lightly at the door.
It's Le Moyne. Are you all right?
Perfectly. How stupid it must be
for you!"
I'm doing very well. The maid will
soon be ready. What shall I order for
supper?"
Anything. I'm starving."
"I think your shoes have shrunk.
Flatterer !" She laughed. "Go away
and order supper. And I can see fresh
lettuce. Shall we have a salad?"
K. Le Moyne stood for a moment In
front of the closed door, for the
sound of her moving, beyond It Things
had gone very far with the Pages'
roomer that day in the country; not
so far as they were to go, but far
enough to let him see on the brink of
what misery he stood.
He could not go away. He had prom
ised her to stay; he was needed. He
thought he could have endured seeing
her marry Joe, had she cared for the
boy. That way, at least, lay safety for
her. The boy had fidelity and devotion
written large over him. But this new
complication—her romantic interest in
Wilson, the surgeon's reciprocal inter
est in her, with what he knew of the
man—made him quail.
From the top of the narrow stair
case to the foot, and he had lived a
year's torment ! At the foot, however,
he, was startled out of his reverie. Joe
Drummond stood there waiting for
him, his blue eyes recklessly alight.
You—you dog !" said Joe.
There were people in the hotel par
lor. Le Moyue took the frenzied boy
by the elbow and led him past the
door to the empty porch.
"Now," he said, "If you will keep
your voice down. I'll listen to what
you have to say.
You know what I've got to say."
This failing to draw from K. Le
Moyne anything but his steady glance,
Joe jerked his arm free and clenched
his fist.
What did you bring her out here

for?
I do not know that I owe you any
explanation, but I am willing to give
you one. I brought her out here for a
trolley ride and a picnic luncheon."
He was sorry for the boy. Life not
having been all beer and skittles to
him, he knew that Joe was suffering,
and was marvelously patient with him.
Where is she now?
She had the misfortune to fall In
the river. She Is upstairs." And, see-
ing the light of unbelief in Joe's eyes :
If you care to make a tour of investi-
gation, you will find that I am entire-
ly truthful. In the laundry a maid—"
She is engaged to me"—doggedly.
"Everybody in the neighborhood knows
it, and yet you bring her out here for a
picnic! It's—it's damned rotten treat-
ment.
- His fist had unclenched. Before K.
Le Moyne's eyes his own fell. He felt
suddenly young and futile; his just
rage turned to blustering in his ears.
^ "I don't know where you came
from," he said, "but around here de
cent men cut out when a girl's en
gaged.
"I see!
What's more, what do we know
about you? • You may be all right, but
how do I know It? You get her Into
trouble and I'll kill you !"
It took courage, that speech, with K.
Le Moyne towering five inches above
him and growing a little white about
the lips.
"Are you going to say all these things
to Sidney?" ,
"I am. And I am going to find out
why you were upstairs just now.
Perhaps never in his twenty-two
years had young Drummond been so
near a thrashing. Fury that he was
ashamed of shook Le Moyue. For
very fear of himself, he thrust his
hands in the pockets of his Norfolk
coat

Very well," he said. "You go to her
with just one of these ugly insinua
tions, and I'll take mighty good care
that you are sorry for it. If you are
going to behave like a bad child, you
deserve a licking, and I'll give it to
M
you.
An overflow fron^ the parlor poured
out on the porch,
himself In hand somewhat. He was
still angry, bat the look in Joe's eye
startled him. He put a hand on the
boy's shoulder.
"You're wrong, old man," he said.
You're Insulting the girl you care for
by the things you are thinking. And,
if it's any comfort tQ you, I have no
Intention of interfering in any way.
You can count me out. It's between
you and her.
Joe picked his straw hat from a
chair and stood turning it In his hands.
"Even if you don't care for her, how
do I know she isn't crazy about you?"
"My word of honor, she isn't."
Moyne had got
She sends you notes to McKees'."
Just to clear the air, I'll show It to
you. It's no breach of confidence. It's
about the hospital.
Into the breast pocket of his coat he
dived and brought up a wallet. The
wallet had had a name on it in gilt let
ters that had been carefully scraped
off. But Joe did not wait to see the
note.

CHAPTER VII.
Sidney and K. Le Moyne were din
ing together at the White Springs ho
tel. The novelty of the experience had
made her eyes shine like stars. She
saw only the magnolia^ tree shaped like
a heart, the terrace edged with Vow
shrubbery, and beyond the faint gleam
that was the river. The unshaded glare
of the lights behind her in the house
was eclipsed by the crescent edge of
the rising moon. Dinner was over. Sid
ney was experiencing the rare treat
of after-dinner coffee.
a
Le Moyne, grave and contained, sat
across from her. To give so much
pleasure, and so easily! How young
she was, and radiant ! No wonder the
boy was mad about her. She fairly
held out her arms to life.
Ah, that was too bad ! Another
table was being brought ; they were not
to be alone. But what roused in him
violent resentment only appealed to
Sidney's curiosity.
Carlotta Harrison came out alone.
Although the tapping of her heels was
dulled by the grass, although she had
exchanged her cap for the black hat,
Sidney knew her at once. A sort of
thrill ran over her. It was the pretty
nurse from Doctor Wilson's office. Was
It possible—but of course not! The
book of rules stated explicitly that such
things were forbidden.
"Don't turn around," she said swift
ly. "It Is the Miss Harrison I told you
about. She is looking at us."
Carlotta's eyes were blinded for a
moment by the glare of the house
lights. Then she sat up, her eyes on
Le Moyne's grave profile turned to
ward the valley. Lucky for her that
Wilson hod stopped In the bar, that
Sidney's Instinctive good manners for
bade her staring, that only the edge of
the summer moou shone through the
trees. She went white and clutched
the edge of the table, with her eyes
closed. That gave her quick brain a
chance. It was madness, June mad
ness. She was always seeing him, even
In her dreams. This man was older,
much older. She looked again.
She had not been mistaken. Here,
and after all these months! K. Le
Moyne, quite unconscious of her pres
ence, looked down into the valley.
Wilson appeared on the wooden
porch above the terrace, and stood, his
eyes searching the half-light for her,
If be came down to her, the man at the
next table might turn, would see her—
She rose and went swiftly back to
ward the hotel. All the gayety was
gone out of the evening for her, but
she forced a lightness she did not feel :
It Is so dark and depressing out
there—it makes me sad.
Surely you do not want to dine in
the house?"
Do you mind?
"Your wish is my law—tonight," he
said softly.
After all, the evening was a disap
pointment to him. The spontaneity had
gone out of It, for some reason. The
girl who had thrilled to his glance
those two mornings in his office, whose
somber eyes had met his, fire for fire,
across the operating room, was not
playing up. She sat back in her chair,
eating little, starting at every step. Her
eyes, which by every rule of the game
should have been gazing into bis, were
fixed on the oilcloth-covered passage
outside the door.
"I think, after all, you are fright


ened !
"Terribly.
A little danger adds to the zest of
things. You know what Nietzsche says
about that.
I am not fond of Nietzsche." Then,
with an effort: "What does he say?''
" 'Two things are wanted by the
true man—danger and play. Therefore
he seeketh woman as the most dan
gerous of toys.
Women are dangerous only when
you think of them as toys. When a
man finds that a woman can reason—
do anything but feel—he regards her
as a menace. But the reasoning wom
an is really less dangerous than the
other sort.
This was more like the real thing.
To talk careful abstractions like this,
with beneath each abstraction its con
cealed personal application, to talk of
woman and look In her eyes, to discuss
new philosophies with their freedoms,
to discard old creeds and old morali
ties—that was his game. Wilson be
came content, interested again. The girl
was nimble-minded. She challenged
his philosophy and gave him a chance
to defend it. With the conviction, as
their meal went on, that Le Moyne
and his companion must surely have
gone, she gained ease.
It was only by wild driving that she
got back to the hospital by ten o'clock.
Wilson left her at the corner, well
content with himself. As he drove up
the Street he glanced across at the
Page house. Sidney was there on the
doorstep, talking to a tall man who
stood below and looked up at her.
Wilson settled his tie, in the darkness.
Sidney was a mighty pretty girl. The
June night was In his blood. He was
sorry he had not kissed Carlotta good
night. He rather thought, now he
looked back, she had expected it.
As be got out of his car at the curb,

the shadow of the treebox moved
quickly away.
Wilson smiled after him In the dark
ness.
That you. Joe?" he called.
But the boy went on.

Sidney entered the hospital as a pro
bationer early in August. Christine
was to be married in September to
Palmer Howe, and, with Harriet and
K. in the house, she felt that she could
safely leave her mother.
The balcony outside the parlor was
already under way. On the night be
fore she went away Sidney took chairs
out there and sat with her mother un
til the dew drove Anna to the lamp
Jn the sewing room and her "Daily
Thoughts" reading.
Sidney sat alone and viewed her
world from this new and pleasant
ongle. She could see the garden and

CHILDREN'S WORK AT HOME
Well That They Should Be Given Re
sponsibilities Suitable to Their
Ajje and Physical Strength.
A home that is a home is the result
of the combined efforts and good will
of those who dwell together within
the house. In this co-operative enter*
prise none should be deprived of the
benefit which comes from carrying re
sponsibility and. contributing to the
general good. Hence, every child
should be given duties to perform in
that home as well as privileges to en
joy. It is doubtful if a child should
be paid for performing his share of
the home duties. Each child should
care for his own room and should do
this properly at the right time. Cer
tain other household or farm tasks
should be allotted to him—not tasks
that will delay him in starting to
school, not those that will exhaust
him at night, or those too heavy for
his Immature body, but such work as
is reasonable - in kind and quantity
should be given to him from his earli
est years. More boys and girls are in

Mr. William A. Radford will answer

the readers of this paper. On account of
his wide experience as Editor, Author and
Manufacturer, he Is, without doubt, the

The demand for better results from
farming do not constitute a theory or
a fad. The demand has been met and
the results are an accomplished fact,
demonstrated by the outcome of work
on farms which is being carried on un
der improved conditions and guided
by the collective intelligence and
knowledge of the nation.
In the United States, as in the older
countries, necessity is forcing the

to the end that production will be in
creased and quality improved.
Our food comes from the farm and
(a few luxuries excepted) it is pro
duced by the farmers of this country.
The great problem of keeping the ta
ble supplied (with a surplus of farm
products for export) cannot be solved
in Its entirety by bringing about larger
yields of grains and tubers, i
Adequate provision must be made
for conserving the harvest and that
calls for farm buildings which even the
most progressive element is willing to
concede are entitled to the character
ization "Modern.
It does not greatly profit the farmer
to produce a great quantity and to wit
ness its depreciation in value while It
remains in his possession.
He has found, also, that it is poor
business for him to house his live stock
in structures that breed disease, or
whose character prevents the most rap
id development and Increase in weight.
Thorough tests have been made by
government officials and those in
charge of the agricultural colleges
which have proven on a dollar and
cents basis the absolute and practical
economy of properly designed, con
structed and appointed farm buildings.
Under the most favorable conditions,
beef cattle will take on weight at a
prescribed rate, .while under the least
favorable conditions such stock barely
will hold its own though given the

that are built to conform to approved
methods of construction and furnished
with appointments of a suitable char
acter are a necessary adjunct to suc
cessful farming, and thé most economi
cal that can be used. They will pay
many times 6 per cent on the differ
ences between their cost and the cost
of the makeshift variety.
Progressive farmers are planning for
the future. Farm buildings are being
arranged in a way to minimize labor
and save time, and with the thought
- 1 ^^—pB BpjUBHP
ever in mind, to insure the comfort of
the stock and the safety of the prod
ucts stored for use or sale.
Location of farm buildings with re
spect to each other in some respects is
a matter of individual preference, in
others it is a matter of definitely es
tablished rules. The principle Is that
all products should flow continuously
in one direction,
necessary to cart hay, grain or offal
back and forth.
Farmers, country contractors, archi
tects and those in charge of agricul
tural experimental work have col
laborated to produce the modern farm
building. The result is found In the
sanitary dairy, the use of silage, better
housing of live stock, the general em
ployment of labor-saving farm machin
ery and building equipment, the con
tinuous improvement in seed and stock
and the yield of both.
In farm building, Radford's stand
ard plank frame construction has been
the greatest boon and the source of
greatest economy of recent years. This
means of construction does away with
part of the cost materials by using
2 -inch plank instead of heavy timbers.
A further and great economy is effect
ed in labor for the lighter timbers are
cut to pattern and placed in position
by a few men, instead of being slab
It should not be
0
orately framed and raised to position
by machinery or a large crew of men.
Plank-frame construction has stood
the test of years of use and by author
ities is pronounced suitable for farm
buildings of any size or nature.
In this connection are given perspec
tive view and floor plans for four build
ings to comprise a group adequate for
the needs of a large farm. Horse and
dairy barns are of the favored gambrel
roof type. The other two, hog house
and corn crib, are designed to harmo
nize with the two structures first men
tioned, the whole to make a complete
group of farm buildings of one general
type of architecture.
Reference to the floor plans wtfi
show the general arrangement of these
buildiftgs. The cow stable provides ac
commodations for 38 cows. The barn,
of course, could be made longer or
shorter (within reasonable limits) as
local circumstances might warrant. In
the appointments steel stanchions, lit
ter carriers, foul-air shafts, and two
conveniently-located silos stand forth
prominently.
The horse barn provides room for the
storage of farm implements. Farm
ers have learned, to their cost, that it
is cheaper to take care of expensive
machinery than it is to buy new equip
ment every third or fourth year.
The arrangement of the granary,
with the elevator to carry the smaller
grains to the second-story bins, leaves
little to be desired or imagined.
Special attention is directed to the
hoghouse. Time was when the hog
was considered able to root for him
self. Today Piggy, particularly Mrs.
Piggy along about family time, merits
and receives the very closest attention.
The hoghouse should have a con

serve to insulate the animals from the
concrete. There is more cold in the
concrete than heat in the body of the
animal, so the animal is chilled In
stead of the floor being warmed. If
wood floors are not provided, an ex
tra thick Utter should be supplied.
The close study of the appointments
and practical values of these buildings
will place at the command of the read
er some of the very latest and very
best Ideas in farm buildings.
GAME OF BLIND MAN'S BUFF
Under the Name of "Brazen Fly" It
Waa Played by Young Men of
Ancient Greece.
Blind man's buff was played long
ago by the young men of Greece, but
they called It "Brazen Fly." The peo
ple of old England named It "Hoodman
Blind," probably because the players
wore headdresses resembling hoods,
and the blind man turned over his
face, while the others used their hoods
to strike him. Some called it "Harry
Racket" and "Hoodwink.
England has other blindfold games,
among them is "Colin Maillard." Jean
Colin was a brave warrior who lived in
the tenth century. He fought in a bat
tle after both of his eyes were put out,
and so the game gets its name from
him. He was surnamed "Maillard,"
which means "mallet-wlelder," because
that was the weapon he used.
The Germans call their blindfold

Dark.
while Norwegians give it the name of
"Blind Thief' and "The Poles.
We add the "Buff" because of the
light blows usually given to the blind
man by the other players.
Character and Reputation.
There Is a broad distinction between
character and reputation, for one may
be destroyed by slander, while the
other can never be harmed save by its
possessor. Reputation is in no man's
keeping. You and I cannot determine
what other men shall think and say
about us. We can only determine
what they ought to think of us and
say about us, and we can only do this
by acting squarely up to our own con
victions.—Holland. ,
Wampum Beads.
Wampum beads were made from a
variety of different substances, but
the one that was used in the greatest
numbers was the ordinary hard clam
or quahog, which is found from Cape
Cod to Florida. Roger Williams,
writing of the eastern Indians, states
that they "store up shells in summer
against winter, whereof they make
their money.

GIRLS! GIRLS! TRY IT,
BEAUTIFY YOUR HAIR
Make It Thick, Glossy, Wavy, Luxur
' iant and Remove Dandruff—Real
Surprise for You.
Your hair becomes light, wavy, fluf
fy, abundant and appears as soft, lus
trous and beautiful as a young girl's
after a "Danderine hair cleanse." Just
try this—moisten a cloth with a little
Danderine and carefully draw it
through your hair, taking one small
strand at a time. This will cleanse
the hair of dust, dirt and excessive oil
and in just a few moments you have
doubled the beauty of your hair.
Besides beautifying the hair at once,
Danderine dissolves every particle of
dandruff; cleanses, purifies and invig
orates the scalp, forever stopping itch
ing and falling hair.
But what will please you most will
be after a few weeks' use when you
will actually see new hair—fine and
downy at first—yes—but really new
hair—growing all over the scalp. If
jrou care for pretty, soft hair and lots
of it, surely get a 25 cent bottle of
Knowlton's Danderine from any store
and just try it. Adv.
British women are taking up the cul
ture of herbs.
Good Health MaKes
a Happy Home
Good health makes housework easy.
Bad health takes all happiness out of
i,t. Hosts of women drag along in daily
misery, back aching, worried, "blue,"
tired, because they don't know what
ails them.
These same troubles come with weak
kidneys, and, if the kidney action is
distressingly disordered, there should be
no doubt that the kidneys need help.
