Here our story begins.
Rudolph, we soon learn, has two
alms in venturing nacognito into the
dlth of Paris. Th first is to dis
coer, f he can, the whereabouts at
Mrs. George's son, Germain, who has
been taken from her in his youth by a
vicious husband. The second is to
trace, if possible, his lost daughter,
who is supposed to have died in In
fancy. It is around these two themes
that the romance moves. In pursuing
them M. Rudolph is beset by every im
aginable adventure. He is locked up
in a subterranean cellar, where the
waters of the Seine slowly creep up to
his neck, and from which prediea
meat the faithful Slasher rescues him.
Innumerable traps are laid for his
feet; but from each successive snare
he miraculously escapes. And through
out this series of entanglements he
never abandons his premise that no
matter how depraved the individual,
there is potential good in all human
Ity, which, If nurtured, will blossom
into virtue. In consequence he be
comes a sort of "inferior Providence"
to those whom he meets. He saves
the blameless debtor from prison, and
places an honest livelihood within his
reach. He does a thousand kind
nesses. On the other hand be does not
hesitate to bring the unworthy to
justice. Relentlessly he causes the
eyes of a wretch who has been plti
less to the weak to be put out, that
he may know what it means to be
helpless and the prey of the strong.
The story is a network of crimes
and their eventual punishment, and
everywhere triumphant we find the
creed that in the breast of humankind
burns a spark of the Divine.
The portion of the tale dealing with
the kidnaping of Flearde-Marie from
her home with Mrs. George by Screech
Owl, the blinded schoolmaster, and
the imp Hoppy is a novel in Itself.
How these wretches wait for the in
nocent girl; convey her to Paris by

of the police, who In turn deposit her a
in prison is exciting readg. From t
prison she is released by a written or
de only to fall a videtlm to a beand
of hired ruffians who try to drown her t
in the Seine. As she is floating down
the river, one of her old comrades from t
Saint Lasare leaps in and saves her t
life. Next we see her in the great
Paris hospital, and it is at this junc
ture that Grand Duke Rudolph of Ger
olstein obtains trace of her; discovers
that she is his own daughter; and
bears her in triumph to his magnifi
caut palace to be transformed from a
fugitive of the streets to her Royal
Highness Princess Amnelia. Here. for
a brief period, we behold our little
Ilieur-de-Marie the idol of the court,
and sought in marriage by a prince of
the realm.
But the stigma of the past is ever
fresh in the girl's mind. She cannot
shake tt off. Though she adores her
lover, she refuses to wed him, saying
that she "loves him too much to give
him a hand that has been touched by

T HE new suits for fall have arrived
In force and in variety and now
it remains to be seen just which of the
new styles will be so cordially received
that they will develop into fashions.
Apparently manufacturers have made
a valiant effort to please everyone and
the salient features of their offerings
are these: the introduction of several
types of suits and the variation of
these types.
An inspection of the new models
shows that skirts remain practical
and plain. The much heralded longer
skirt is really here, but it is only
slightly longer than conservative skirts
of the passing season. The length of
coats shows the greatest variation, be
cause of the different types of stalts
which designers have used as a start
ing point, but the general tendency,
so far, Is In favor of those from finger
tip to knee-length. The straight line

of developments; some of the collars
are quite large and are often made of
natural fur. They may be worn open,

sleeves and bell sleeves, plenty of fur

tricotine serge, polret twill, and for

Tim was in the history of American
farm's when a I arn was merely a poor

live stock and some of the feed need
ed to maitaln the animals throughfut
the winter months. No particular at
tention was paid to the needs of the
animals other than a roof over their
heads and walls to break the winter
winds. Cows housed In these struc
tures were cold and a great percent
age of the feed they consumed was
used up to maintain the required body
heat, and little went to produce milk.
Horses were not needed for farm work
in winter, so they were put on light
feed, and when spring came were in
poor condition for the heavy work of
that season.

The modern barn, like the modern
home, is built with two ideas upper
most; comfort and conveniences-com
fort for the animals that are to live
in it, and convenience for the men
who care for the animals. Modern
barns are constructed of good materi
als and are put up In first-class work

with systems of ventilation that keep

Lone Beaver Found He Had Taken the
Words of the Preacher Altogether
Too Literally.
As Lone Beaver sat in the mission
house and listened to the words of the
preacher, lie had an inspiration. Only
by hard work had he been able to live.
He worked about the Hudson's Bay
coapany's post in summer and spent
the winter in the snow-drifted forest
on his trap lines.
"Verily I say unto you," said the
preacher In his sermon, "go to the
Lord In prayer for what you want, and
if you have faith it will be given you,"
Lone Beaver went to his teepee and
fell on his knees. "0 Lord," he prayed,

bacon, one box of tea and one box of

A good example of the modern dairy
and horse burn is shown In the ac
companying illustration. This barn is
of about the right size to accommo
date the live stock-horses and dairy
cows-that are found on tile average
farm in the Middle West. It is 124
feet long and 38 feet wide, and is di
vided into two stables. one to accom
modate nine horses and the other to
house 28 cows, their calves and a bull.
Adjoining the barn' are twin silos,
which hold enough feed to carry the
animals through the winter anid sup

other ensilage; on tile mnow lht)r there
is plenty of rooml to store the lay (or
other roughitge and the ieddindg the'
animItals need to malke thela comfort
This barn is what is knlown as a
"gaitbrel-r(oof," denoting the brol:en
rot f limis that give it ant attractive ex
terior. It is of framl e cotuistrlltion,
set on a concrete founlation atld has
a concirete flouor in the stable.
Tile stable floor, of course, Is the
most important. hlom this floor is di
vided for horses and .cows, and how
the stalls are arranged are shown by
tihe floor plan that a.ecomlnlpanies the
exterior view. It will lbe noted that a
solid wall with a door in the cemnter
divides the horses from the cows. This
method of construction is required by
law in some states, as the ammonia
r fumes from the horse stable are likely
r to contaminate the milk. In the horse
stable there are nine single stalls, and
a r(om, for tile harness. The stall;
s face a center alleyway, over which is
y a carrier run on a track that is used
to transport feed to the mangers. This
k track extends to the rear of the stalls
t so that the carrier may be used tc
n take out manure. About two-thirds of
f the stable floor is devoted to the dairy
stable. It will be seen by the plan
y that there are 14 stalls in each row
i- facing the feedting alley, besides fout
large box stalls for calves and bull.
The dotted line on the plan shows the C
run of the carrier track, which extends
to the feed room that connects the
silos with the barn. This arrangement
permits the silage to be thrown down t
in the feed room, loaded into the car
rier and transported directly to the
mangers. The small circles at the I
stall heads denote drinking cups, t
which are connected with the farm I
water-pressure system and keep water
continually before the animals, the
water being turned on and shut oe
automatically by the pressure of the
noses of the cows on a valve.
A comparison of this barn with
those in use twenty or thirty years
ago, and the structures found on too
many American farms today, will give
a good idea of the progress in barn
construction and equipment. Dirty,
dark, cold and drafty structures are
expensive because they cut down pro
duction and increase labor cost, while
the modern barns increase production
and cut labor costs.
It is economy when building to build
well. That is especially true of barns
that are to house live stock and their
feed. Every farmer who needs a new
building of this type should bear these
facts in mind.
Still nothing happened. Supper time
came and Lone Beaver was hungry.
"O Lord," he cried desperately,
"bring me a plate of beans."
That seemed little enough to ask,
but not a bean came In answer. This
was too much for Lone Beaver, and
he voiced his lost faith in angry words.
"0 Lord," he said, "you are Just the
same as the Hudson's Bay company.

Least appreciated, relatively to their
gastronomical merits, are the soft
shelled turtles, native of the large
streams and lakes. They are hardly in
ferlor to the diamond back terrapin,
but are seldom seen in the markets
for two reasons-because they do not
ship well and because local demand,
where they are caqght, uses up the
isupply. They are home-consumption
