Wo were led to believe that no ex hibit should have the remotest con nection with the tfoods in the store where it is put on display, and yet it s-ems that the verdant assortment of crispy, crinkly endive in front of Fra lick's millinery store would make the snappiest kind of pom-poms for a hio spring hat. Hut then this is fall, so Its all riht. In this exhibit there are 16 different varieiies of endive, from the palest tfreen stalks with scanty, curly leaves, to the lare blue ;reen fleshy leaf which resembles r-omewhat a species of milkweed. Kn dive wasn't so well known a few years ao, but now it forms the back bone of many a dainty salad. Some who have red yet become acclimated to the sliuhtly bitter taste will asree that it does very well as a backbone but that its usefulness ends there. An interested bystander informed us that "wilted and served with bacon, it makes a rattlin' Kood dish." and smacked his lips with Kusto. Which sounds very reasonable. Ileal Cream Separator. W. C.

Home Phone ikV.s to Menniieci for the last ten years, has here on exhibit a No. 16 United States cream separator, which is eoupled to a Perkins two and a half horsepower horizontal a.s en gine. Some time during exposition week these two machines will be shown in operation, the dairy appa ratus actually and effectually sepa rating the cream from the milk, a process which milkmen reduced to an exact science some time ago. No modern dairy could operate without a cream separator of some sort, for without one, there is bound to be some traces of cream on the top of the bottles we find on our back stoop every morning, and that would bo contrary to all precedent. Yes, the separator is indispensable to that sort of business. In the South Bend tea store show window we find a very dainty display of hand painted china plates, tea cups, pitchers and a pair f cunning little eg-shaped salt r.:ia pepper shakers done in the. most delicate tints. The most atcractive piece, however, is a large cJiina tray cov ered with a profusion of lilacs in full bloom which are so realistic that one can almost pick them off the plate. Out in front of the store we go to the other extreme and find here the inelegant, hut nutritious, rutabaga. The rutabaga isn't very strong on looks that is. good looks, although it has the distinction of not looking like anything else, and if it did look like anything else or anything else looked like it. the other thing would probably jump in front of a train or leap from the Lrfisalle av. bridge as the easiest solution of the problem. The homely rutabaga, however, like most other things unbeautiful to see. is highly useful, and we are told when properly cooked quite surpass es the turnip as a table vegetable. Tills Is Some Corn. Thirty-six entries of field corn on the stalk stand in stately array, some of them so tall that they would be a credit to that Kansas whose fabl?d corn is said to grow as high as the tallest pine, in front of Zeltner's hard ware store. By actual measurement the tallest stalk on exhibit attains 18 feet, which while not so spectacular on paper, nevertheless Is a right smart height for corn grown here abouts. The average yield per stalk is five ears, and another entry is ex pected with seven ears. A cornstalk of course doesn't find seven ears any drawback, but they certainly would be a disadvantage to a retiring citi zen who lived In the Fame neighbor hood with a phonograph, a few teeth ing babies and a pair of bellicose cats. The Schmidt Stone Co. at the First National bank present for our inspec tion three choice specimens of their Work a memorial wreath in gray- white sandstone, a "handsome Doric column, and an ipimense globe which would serve very nicely for the top of a newel! post in some titanic monarch's palace. That memorial wreath is so clear cut and so beautiful in design that it would be a pleasure to have It for a tombstone. And once over your lit tle grave, it is very likely you would stay buried. In another window are several handsome cedar clothes chests with burnished copper straps and hih polish, made by the Acme Manufac turing Co. A corner section is shown with unique dovetail construction, an exclusive feature. Cedar, as nearly everyone knows, is the most desirable material for a clothes chest, for once carefully folded away, your summer or winter duds are safe from the dep redations of the inquisitive moth, as the latter contracts severe headaches and nausea from the odor of cedar and thus suffers complete loss of ap petite. At the curb of the J. M. S. Miilding the Winkler Bros. Co. exhibit three tvpes of delivery wasons a light runabout, a dray and a heavy whole sale truck. These were out in the heavy rainstorm yesterday afternoon, but when the sun cleared they look ed as new and bright as ever. At the Court IIoiw A comprehensive and educational displav of farm products, appliances and soils in the rotunda of the court house would require a whole day to study carefully, and from the num ber f visitors present it is appar ently one of the most important ex hibits in the city. Here we have charts and photographs of tubercu losis camps. some remarkably tine specimens of products grown on the black muckv soil of the Kankakee marsh, samples of fertilizer and comparative sample. of fruits which were scientifically treated ami these which were not.

The soy bean pod looks very much like a caterpillar, and although it in ay not taste like one. neverthe less its unappetizing appearance pre cludes it from admission to our kitchens.

Several baskets of farinaceous tu bers labeled "Big Potatoes" calmly submit to the brazen stare of thou sands of sightseers at the "Quality fc"hop," but It is only because, having eyes, they are in a position to stare back that they are so calm about it. The qualifying adjective is very un necessary in this case, for a casual slant at their impressive, bulk leaves no doubt in the mind of the visitor as to what kind of potatoes they are. Potatoes are surely getting bigeer and bigger every year, and presently wo shall be going to the grocer and say ing. "Now, Mr. So-and-So, you mi.i?ht slice me off about four pounds from that one," just like you would order a cut from a side of beef. Two sociable lookinsr wax ladies in vite inspection of the trim Kidenour aprons which tit snugly around the adorable curves of their more or less ravishing forms at Wheelock's. The apron has long been the badge of household drudgery, but if you will just rest your eyes on the pinky sweetness of that one back in the left hand corner you will agree that any reasonably good looking little miss could wear that to a garden party and feel that she was all to the mustard. Attired in one or another of these neat aprons the average house wife, or club wife., or bridge wife, would make herself considerably more ornamental about the old place than when enveloped in the limp, tlimsy folds of the fnmillar kimono as we se them from our bact' yard. A diminutive yellow wheeled rub ber tired runabout hitched to a full sized but somewhat inanimate pony, which is held in check by a very self important young man on the box. constitutes the attractive display of the Colfax Mfg. Co. at the Livingston store. A modest little miss stands in back of the driver, ready to jump out the minute the pony becomes frac tious, a contingency not imminent as the driver seems to have his steed well in hand. Yesterday afternoon a little girl stopped at the window and after a minute, wrinkling her nose in dis gust, she exclaimed. "Look at that boy how smart he is!" A neat lit tle russet English "postage stamp" saddle and a cowboy saddle with high liowi and trappings complete the ex hibit. Outside is a counter full of pie pumpkins of all shapes miJ sizes, running from a sickly yellow to a long, dark green one with reinfor cing ribs. A dozen different kinds of fresh. crisp rauisnes is quite a noeuy at this time of year, and those who made gardens last spring won't believe there are any such animals until they see these remarkable specimens at Baker's shoe store. There are long white ones and fat red ones, and some little round shavers that look scared to death in between a great big warty giant on one side and some hungry looking cannibals on the other. One big one in particular 'evidently thought he was starting out in life to become a squash or a pumpkin, because he is far and away bigger than anything a self-respecting radish ought to try to be. (To Be Continued.) the assumed shudders which an nounced her false "control". Rosalie knocked at Miss Estrilla's door. "Come in!" cried the invalid, more eagerly than her wont. And as Ro salie entered. "Oh I was expecting you! Can you will you to-day?" "I've ben puttin all the power I have into this thing," said Rosalie Le Grange; "you've no idea how I've tried. I was awake half the night, just gettm' into touch." "I'm sure I'm grateful for that," replied Miss Estrilla. "I'm pretty sure I'll be strong," pursued Rosalie, "but I'm .lust as sure that it will be weeks an' weeks before I can ever do it again. This is my last sittin' with you for ever so long. Miss Estrilla. 1 can feel it goin. When I'm playin' for all my power, as I've got to now, conditions must be right. You wouldn't mind, would you, if I darkened this room complete? An' let's have a little more air." There was a window, which opened upon the fire-escape, at the foot of Miss Estrilla's bed. This window Ro salie darkened last of all; but first she raised the sash a foot. "That curtain will blow an' disturb me," she said. "I'm ffoin' to pin it down." Had Miss Estrilla's soul held any emotions, in that moment, but grief and eagerness had she been capable just then of suspicion she might have noted a tiny but significant sound. The fire-escape had creaked a little, as though a weight had been imposed at the bottom. It creaked again at intervals for the next five minutes, but afterward, usually, when the roar of a passing . Ninth av. elevated train drowned all slighter sounds. "Now, I'm ready to try," said Ro salie, settling down at the foot of the couch. "Dear, you do look anxious! Don't try to crowd the spirits that's always the best way but remember again this is about the last control that's in me for a month, lie quiet, dearie." Her eyes sought the dis tances, her body shook. Then came the change which Miss Estrilla had watched so o.en. and with such a fascinated eagerness. Rosalie's body relaxed and fell backward in the Morris-chair. Her lids gradually closed. she breathed as though asleep. "Oh. sad IacLv again!" babbled Laughing-Eyes, quite suddenly. She could hear Miss Estrilla shift eager ly on her couch. "I can't stay long. John speaks. He says he wants you quick. John is big and strong. Good-by sad lady." Rosalie's breath came hard; her body wrenched; a masculine voice followed the voice which Rosalie al ways assumed when she imperson ated Capt. John H. Hanska. "I am here again, Margaret; I love you. I am ready to forgive." "Oh, John, thank you thank God you will when you know. For, John, you have so little to forgive, beside what I have already forgiven." As usual Miss Estrilla made reply. "I know. And I suffer. But I un derstand. First I have told you how little I saw that night. My flesh still clung to me " Rosalie stopped here and seemed to gather her body together, as though the thing which controlled her was struggling to assert more power. "So I do not know what hapened even before I passed out it came so -say to me again that yo:t suddenly loved me." "0 much, John de;t. that I cr.n not tell you all " "And I put aside such a love a that for jewels?" "Yes, John. And when I searched your room the night I found you there 1 would have Riven them all t- you if you had waked and spoken kindly of me. But you were mar ried and you would have died soon at the best. Oh. why not before thU happened to Juan " "Was It Juan? I have told yen that I could not fee clearly at that time it is all confused." "Yes, dearest. You could not un derstand because of the clothe? but dearest, it was Juan who held the knife which went into your body. oh. forgive him more than me. He la my brother hp did it for me John. 1 can't forget his remorse when he came to me were you watching? Did you see?" "No I was not awake in spirit yet quick" the voice was growing weak. "He himself did not understand, then, how you died. He thought ib knife killed you. He worked it all out ' afterward when I told him about your condition. But then, he said to me: 'My God. 1 have run :i knife Into Capt. Hanska!' What is it what is it!" For Rosalie had leaped from h r chair, run up the window-shade at the foot of the bed. thrown the sash wide open. Into the room leaped iw men. They ranged themselves besid the couch. "What is It!" screamed Miss Estrilla again. "Thrse are police detectives." F.iid Rosalie in her natural voice. "They have been listening behind that win dow. They've come to find what yo i know about the death of Capt. John H. Hanska." Miss Estrilla gave a little scream whioh died in a rattle in her throat. Her eyes caught at Rosalie. "Traitor!" she managed to gasp be fore she gave another scream and fainted, as Rosalie Le Grange? expect ed that she would. Rosalie rushed for water and re storatives. "Get right at her ns she rom ' out," she whispered to Inspector Mr Gee in passing. "That's tb time." "Ain't vou going to stay?" inquired McGee. "No. She'll be too bu?y hatin me ever to valk. An there's two things 1 never want to watch. One's a hang in', an' the other's the third degr-e." And by the time that MKs Estrilla was conscious again of the sights and sounds of this, her terrible world. Ho. ?alie was gone from the room, and Detective Kennedy, police stenogra pher, who had been listening at the open tell-tale register of the room be low, was with the group of inquisitors about her bed.

Impersonating the niiild. to the front door Rosalie stood alone with Inspector McGee. "Well, everything's ready," said the inspector, and time's precious." "Yes. I'm goin' in a minute," she responded; but her voice was dead. "I feel like I was going to be ope rated on. That's how I feel." "Aw, brace up!" said Martin Mc Gee. Rosalie did not answer at once. Her eyes, sweeping the room to avoid direct gaze lighted on the dresser, where stood a photograph of Constance Hanska a solicited gift. She fixed her gaze on that; and the fallen lines of her face lifted with determination. "Yes," she said, "I'm goin' to brace up." he started upstairs, then, to that room on the third floor back, the cen ter of the sinister web which she hail made of this, her dwelling-place, so strangely acquired, so strangely used. In that web struggled a half-blind, half-distracted My. toward which she. the spider, was now creeping. Some such comparison may have struck Ro salie, for she shuddered twice in her slow progress.
