, ) DISCUSSING NORA m By MOLLIE MATHERS. Cofrrrtfbt, lilt, WMttrn Nwippr Union. They were In the sun room, while out where the scarlet sage made n glory around her, sat Norn. "This," remarked a determined-looking woman, "Is the most reckless thing that she has done. I must con fess to having been more or less shocked all along at Nora's actions. She is what one might call independ ently reckless. Of course, I don't be lieve all that I hear about her throw ing this one and that one over. It Is more likely that the Wilkin's man, for Instance, did not reach a state of pro posal. Eligible young men are not so easily cast aside. Hut It Is certain, that Nora went around with him here a lot." A red haired, and very young girl spoke up from a corner. "Ted Wllklns was crazy nbout Nora," she suld defiantly, "anyone could see that. So are all her admir ers and every man who conies here Is an admirer of tier's, open or secret ly. But money doesn't move Nora Barron, or charm, or anything. She's Just friendly with them all, and a mighty good friend at that. I ought to know I've been with her enough." Mrs. Gladden stared at the girl coldly. "l'ou are too young to Judge, Helene," she reproved, "or to Join In discussion." The young girl bent to her knlttlag. "Some discussion," she remarked succinctly. Mrs. Benton continued the topic. "Ever since I came to this hotel," she said, "It has been one man or another with that girl, driving or walk ing or singing in turn. And she Is ut terly Indifferent to criticism. Strang ers to her, these men are, yet dancing attendance after an evening's ac quaintance. And Nora is old enough to know better. Much older, I really believe than most of us think, Ttils latest episode of tier's, however. Is pos itively reckless. Going about diy and night with a stable groom a hotel stable groom. Helane gased meditatively out of the window. "Gee I" she mused, "he's handsomer than any movie hero I know; tall, and dark and dandy." "My dear," corrected Helene's moth er, "you have caught Nora's foolish enthusiasm, and, I am afraid some of her views. Keep them to yourself." "The man has completely fascinated Nora," said Mrs. Gladden. "Her aunt, Mrs. Barron Insists that she will have not one penuy of her money If she continues Id her friend ship with the Interloper. "I," said Mrs. Gladden virtuously, "have done all I could to Influence the young man against It; assured him, when he was driving my car one day, and I entered casually but pur posely Into conersatlon, that Nora acted In precisely this same manner to every new youn man who came to the hotel, and that he, the Larry per son, was not considered by her apart from his usefulness. The youug man had the Impertinence to laugh In my face and tell me I wns mistaken." "Knows of course," sighed Mrs. Ben ton, "of Nora's complete Infatuation. I, Instead, endeavored to bring her to her senses. Showed her the hnpo slblllty of the situation. But It was of uo use. Nora snubbed me direct ly; picked up her book and left the room." "Someone else Is going to leave the room right now," suld Helene ex plosively, and she went out to the gar den, crossing deliberately to Nora, among the scarlet blossoms. Helene dropped down on the gruss at her friend's side. "For the love of Mike, Nora," she exclaimed, "tell me whether you are In love with that handsome driver or not. And If you are, what you In tend to do about It. Those cats," she shrugged hack toward the hotel, "are having a great time speculating, Will you really loe every cent of your Aunt Barron's money If you Insist on marrying?'' Nora smiled. "I suppose so," she answered cheer fully, "but what matter?" The very young girl stared wonder Ingly. "So that's love," she remarked. "You do love him, and so you don't care about anything else." "He Is worth loving," Nora said softly, her brown eyes deepened in tenderness. "Larry has tried long and patiently to know me better, and to teach me to know him. But I missed a lot of my youth, Helene; It bus only been on outings like this, that I came to know people at all. So, when Lar ry tried after our brief meeting In the Hills where we were guests last sum mer, to call upon me later In the city, he was repeatedly refused and con ceived therefore, this Idea of playing groom at the Cliff hotel, where we are safe from aunt's surveillance and nat urally, occasionally be thrown upon each other's companionship. He In tended In this way to teach me to love him." "And ho has," cried Helene delight edly. Nora's arm slipped round the girl's shoulders. "We are going In to the city to be married tomorrow," she confided, "and when you hear, don't worry about my lost fortune. Lawrence Urevans Is well able to take care of his wife, my dear; he Is as successful at law, 1st the city, as he baa been here la lore." Uncle Walte rU (I s-t5j cvr-HfZiAA XX SURE CURES Mf"vLD JINGLESON says he can V cure arty disease by drinking hot water," nnnounced the bald board er. "He has had every disease that Is officially recognized by the ltoynl College Of Physicians and Surgeons and has banished them alt by that simple means. "Anything be comes a curative agent If a man be lieves In It hnrd enough," said the star boarder. "Jasper Jones says he wns tor mented with rhetl mntlsm for ten years, and tried everything of which we read In the almanacs, and nothing did him any good until he got n horse chestnut and carried It around In his pocket. Then the rheumatism disappeared, and hasn't played n re turn engagement since. I have talked with Jasper often, trying to point out the folly of his claim, but be refuses to yield an Inch. 'I used to have all kinds of rheumatics before I got that horse chestnut,' he says, 'and now I haven't a single one. Who would ask better proof than that?' "And echo answers who, my dear Mrs. Jiggers. It may be that a horse chestnut In the hip pocket Is a specific for rheumatism. It Isn't safe to de nounce any theory as a false alarm. "Ira Grlfway used to be always groaning about his diseases, until It became unpleasant to meet him. He couldn't talk about anything else. He Ignored the crops and regnrded the weather with contempt, and devoted all his great energy and talents to a discussion of the things that were hurting him. Then all of a sudden he began boasting of how hale and hearty he was. He explained that the road to health was absurdly easy, and there was no excuse for sickness any where. All a man had to do. he said, was to get up early In the morning, before sunrise, and draw In a hundred long breaths of the crisp morning air. "He made the discovery himself, and It was more Important than any mod ern Invention. His sincerity Is shown by the fact that there was no possible graft connected with It. A mnn can't sell the morning atmosphere at so much per breath. Ira's great discov ery wis free to everybody. If I were going to Invent a cure for anything I'd compound something that could be put up In bottles and sold at n dollar n throw. The man who Invents a fresh air cure Is running benevolence Into the ground. "His cure was so cheap that I de cided to try It, as I was suffering from a broken heart and n sluggish liver at that period. I set ray alarm clock for an hour before sunrise, and got up In the pale, bleak dawn, and put my head out of the window to In hale the prescribed hundred breaths, I had reached the twenty-seventh breath when n dissipated bee or wasp, on Its way home from a night of rev elry, stung me on the nose, and I was In such haste to put a .porous plas ter on that organ that I didn't finish the treatment, and never tried it again. But I knew many people who claimed they were cured of-everythlng from the mumps, hoof nnd mouth dis ease, by the hundred-breaths treat ment. "There was a spring on my father's farm, and I doped It with sulphuric acid nnd a few other wholesome In gredients, and then began selling the water to the nflllcted for ten cents a Jug. Some marvelous cures were ef fected. Men hobbled there on crutches to buy the healing fluid, and when they left they threw thefn crutches awny. "For a brief session I had more small change than any boy In the county, but my father returned home from n visit, and when he found out what I had been doing, he Inter viewed me with a hickory pole, and for a year or two I was busy paying back the money I hnd collected from suf ferers. The people who had been healed suffered a relapse as soon as they heard the water was faked; which goes to show, Mrs. Jiggers, that wo are entitled to n better quality of butter on this table."

You can keep more birds on a small floor area under the colony plan than with the Intensive system, where the colony plan Is used In a mild climate, and tho hens have free range most of tho year. Colony houses on runners, holding 30 to 75 hens, are about as large as can be moved easily, but larg er numbers can be kept In one flock In a long house. Flocks of CO to 150 are well adapted to the average condi tions for producing eggs. Large num bers require less labor, fewer fences. and a lower house cost than small .,.., ,hM i. .fL h, ,- flocks, nmi ih i,iivi,ti hnn ro. disease, eelves less attention. The cost of housing poultry depends upon many conditions, such as price of lumber, style of house, amount of floor spnee allowed to each bird, and so ou. Itoo3ts usually are placed next to the end or back walls, 0 to 10 inches above the dropping boards, which should be 2 to '2 feet above the floor. All the roosts should be on the same level ; oth erwise the birds will crowd and light to get on the highest roost. Scantling 2 by 3 Inches or 2 by 4 Indies, with the upper edges rounded off. will do for roosts with either the wide or nar row surface up. Allow 7 to 10 Inches roost space to the fowl, according to the size of the birds. Boosts should be placed 15 Inches apart, but the out side ones may be within 11) Inches of the edge of the dropping boards. Nests may be placed under the drop ping boards, ou partition walls, or In nny convenient place where they do Small Colony Houss on Government Farm at Beltsvllle, Md. not take up floor space, and should he arranged so that the birds can get Into them easily. They should be 12 to 14 Inches square and 12 to 10 Inches high, with a strip about 4 Inches high on the open side to retain the nesting material. Provide oue nest for every four or five hens. Trap nests are es sential for any careful breeding work, and you cod learn all about these In Farmers' Bulletlu 082, A Simple Trap Nest for Poultry, which you can get upon application to the division of publication of the United States De partment of Agriculture.

His mother died, when ,. .li. .., ..i. ,..1..3k u3 nua incite, uuu uia latliCI nu:u he was fifteen. He was a farm labor- er by the month and day until he was practically a grown man. He got some little training In the Public schools. In the printed pages ot tno school books he searched for I the secret of where his sliver spoon had been hidden. He studied hard and worked at anything he could get to do. Tho greatest ambition of his life was to become a country school teacher. He earned the first money to go to college as a farm hand working for $10 a month. The first school he attended was the National Normal University at Lebanon, Ohio, where another young man and himself did their own cook Ing nnd washed their own clothes. He attended there for two years and "took the degree of science." He got to be a teacner ana taugut some nnd later attended the National Normal University, at Ada, Ohio, Representative Simeon D.

He took his degree of , Bachelor of Laws nt Centre College. After graduating from Centre Col lege he was a professor in Union .

Meanwhile and thus the 85 cents had grown to such nn extent that In 1911 Mr. Robslon was chosen Pres ident of the First National Dank of Uarbourvllle. Ho has been chosen unanimously every year since and Is still president of that bank, as well as being Interested In other lra portane business enterprises.
