. 1051, hy .McOlure Newpiiper HyndlciiU,
lletsy stood looking InttNi -store win
clow with the same curious Intensity
ol desire found In a child flattening
Its nose against the pane at the Night
of timitliiliMhlu sweets, for with her,
also, deslrahlllty rested largely upon
the Impossibility of nttiilnnieiit. The
window held, u miscellany of articles
Intended to appeal In some way to ev
eryone, hut to poorly arranged us al
most to escape the attention of all.
, lletsy did not know this. She saw
only one thing a perfect card Index,
such as she had always dreamed of.
She stood before It with rapt gaze.
First It was her cooking recipes which
(he saw neatly catalogued, then her
dres patterns. Again It was a list of
all thu hooks she had read Uetsy
breathed a rapturous sigh as she
turned reluctantly to go home.
Her sister's greeting held "its usual
tart note: "H'm, late for dllnner. And
you the methodical member of the
family." Hut Uetsy, unheeding, saw
dreamily only the object of her adora
tion, wreathed, as It were, In an aura
of glory. "Such a perfect card cata
logue," she breathed.
Kmily glanced up. "Where'd you
SCO It?" .
"fiber's window. It would be per
fect for my recipes, or my letters,
"Grocer's bills," supplied Kmlly.
"Two came this morning." -Betsy
frowned. Aside from the joy of cata
loguing them, hills did not Interest her.
Nevertheless they must be attended
to. She turned to the task assigned
her as the methodical member of the
family, nnd soon reduced the bills to
n hopeless muddle, from which, as
usual, her sister found It necessary to
' Kmily sorted them out. "How much
was that card catalogue?" she de
"I dldnlt notice," Uetsy was startled.
"Ojiess I'll get It; some Christmas,"
returned Kmlly. "It might pay."
Uetsy looked at her sister queerly
nnd left the room. Her own pertur
bation surprised her. To own a card
eilnlog'ue had never occurred to her.
Kver since she could remember she
had dreamed of what could be done
with this Ideal possession, and It was
this alone which constituted her claim
as the methodical mem'ner. Her fam
ily bad entirely overlooked the fact
that this dreaming was the sole evi
dence she had ever given of orderli
ness of any kind.
Never for a moment had lletsy faced
the possibility of actually owning one
of the cherished objects She was sat
isfied simply tq imagine. Hut Kmlly
seldom spoke lightly, nnd Hetsy's Joy
at the thought of possession was a
little dimmed. What would .she cata
logue? Kmlly would expect her to do thp
bills, but the very thought of It tired
her a little. Not her recipes, for the
old bonk she had always used was
Indispensable. Her letters where
were they? They could be found In
every corner of the house. lletsy
shrugged her shoulders.
"Never trouble trouble till trouble
1 troubles you," she murmured, nnd
forgot the problem forthwith.
Hut Kmlly remembered," and Emily,
though sharp of tongue, was kind of
heart, and was saving up to buy lletsy
n card Index. It would take three
years' savings, but Emily did not
grudge a penny. She cherished the,
family tradition that Hetsy was me
thodical, and she determined that at
Inst her Mster should have the desire
of her heart.
"J'orhaps," thought Emily when It
arrived, ''Betsy won't need my ad
vice now about the hills." Advice
was an Inadequate word to describe
the bulk of the work, but still Kmlly
blushed nt her selfish thought.
On Christmas day Hetsy took her
sister and her new card catalogue to
her heart with untarnished radiance
of spirit. For the first time in years
she had n moment of perfect happi
ness. It was not, Indeed, ( until she
had gloated over her new possession
J'or, a week, that she began to have a
qualm. What should she catalogue?
The old question wos n.,,v slnrtllngly
Imminent, nnd" she could lind no satis
It was the middle of January be
fore Emily spoke. "The bills and
receipts ought to ho llxed up," she
suggested. "You can catalogue tlfom
now, you know."
lletsy shrank. This was Just what
she had bgun to 'fear, nnd despera
tion furnished her with n reply.
"Oh," she answered hnstlly, )'I
thought our lists of vegetable and
llowei seeds would he about the right
thing for my new card catalogue. "I've
begun to arrange them."
For a moment the scales scejiied
lifted from Emily's eyes, anil she
Mremed to see thu real confusion and
lack of order in her sister's mind.
Hut the tradition was strong In her,

she sighed, nnd fell to sorting tho

There Comes a Final Stage In tha
Horror, Wh'en Taite for Food
I cannot quite bring myself to tell
tales of famine horrors the monkey
fnced, pop-eyed babies tugging hungrily
at the cold breasts of deud mothers ly

old women and the stoical men; the In
credibly deformed starving waif whom
I picked up outside of "thu city of Tslng

klang who wns carrying home a
starved cat for food, nnd In response
to a query, tried so hard to soil It to
me as a delicate morsel, and such
general concomitants as the Incidence
of smallpox t plague with the famine.
One of the unexpected aspects of
work In the famine camps came when
1 was accompanying Mrs. l'axton of
Cblnklaiig as she mnde rounds to dis
tribute medicine to the sick umong
the hungry. As n matter of fuct,
relatively few persons ever die in a
famine directly from actual hunger,
but rather from diseases 'induced by
Obligingly, Mrs. l'axton freely trans
lated for me as we went along, and we
found, In pathetic paradox, that the
commonest request of- these starving
creatures was for medicine to give
them an appetite I Even when they
succeeded In getting a bowl of food
from the relief station, ran the re
peated tale, they could not cut IU
having no taste for food.
To us this meant, obviously, that the
sufferers had reached the final stages,
where craving for food had passed
away. They were not hungry, be

The latest toy which Parisian chil

The new "Jumping stick,"- which Is
called a "pogo," is more scientific than
Its predecessor, which was nothing
more elaborate than a single stilt with
ttwn rests fpr the feet.
It Is made with an India rubber pad
anil with a strong spring, which ena
bles Its possessor to take a series of
leaps without Jar.
The pogo was ilrst'found In use, In
a primitive form, among the Dynk na
tives of central Borneo, who gave It
that name. It was a stick -with n
cross-piece, on which certain fnvored
young men used to perform a kind of
dance at sncrltlelal ceremonies.
As the chiefs took charge of the
pogos after the ceremony, hiding them
until the' next occasion for their uuc,
it wns very difficult to obtain them',
hut a French traveler who saw the
dance In progress, described them on
his return to I'aris. From his rough

The Dominion police was n small
body of men, the uniformed members
of which were employed largely In

In Ottawa. To It was attached b

Hever In Deep Piles
The object of storing any pro
duct is to preserve its quality
during as long a period as may
be necessary or possible in or
der to permit its disposal at the
most advantageous time. lines
tigations by the Bureau of Plant
Industry, United States Depart
ment of 'Agriculture, show that
the temperature best suited to
the proper preservation ' of po
tatoes is one ranging from 82 to
45 degrees. In regions where
the powdery dry rot occurs a
temperature oT 83 to 8(5 degrees
holds the disease in checlr better
than a higher one.
It is found best not to store
potatoes in largo piles when
they are moist 'or covered witli
moist earth, as they quickly de
velop sufficient heat to injure the
vitality of the tubers. If through
unfavorable weather conditions
it becomes necessary to store
potatoes when they are wet nr.d
dirty, they should bo spread out
in a 'thin . layer until they have
become dry, after which they
may be piled up. it. is not desir

The Chinese have u proverb that

In the same way, though the use of

In the wild Western "movies"

It Is probably better to rely on the

On the other hand. It Is pointed out
