At a Wife Race
D'
O VOU think Malabar will run?"
The girl did^not reply, but her
lips began to tremble. The face of the
man bending toward her grew dark,
but it was the darkness of despair, not
of purpose.
''Perhaps if he knew what you have
told me," He hesitated. "Malabar is
brave and strong and noble. He would
not stoop to a small deed."
"I.promised him with the new year
that he should run forme at the green
corn dance. I—I did not know then,"
looking piteously into the gloomy, deli
cate face above her. "Malabar would
not stoop, to a small deed—no. But this
is not small. He has let it be known
that he will run for me. He would not
turn from his purpose a hair's breadth
—not if he saw somethingin front that
would crush him. And—and it is right
for a great warrior, Ankona, but it is
hard."
"We will fly, White Egret, into the
deepest fastnesses of the Everglades!"
•he cried, hoarsely. "There are places
•where even Malabar's relentless arms
would be powerless."
But White Egret only looked"at him
with sorrowful eyes.
"We are Seminoles, Ankona," she
rebuked gently. "You know our laws.
You would be the last one to break
them."
His arm fell back impotent. Yes,
he would be the last one to break
them.
"Perhaps Malabar will not be proof
against the black drink this time," he
suggested. "He has killed, and it will
be made strong. Others have died. But
no, no! Malabar is a great chief, and a
better man for the tribe than I. Hejiss
tasted the black drink before and will
not die."
"You say well, Ankona," broke in a
stern, powerful voice, and a figure,
dark,towcringand implacable, stepped
from the gathering shadows. "I shall
not fall before the black draught. It
would not be a fit ending for a war-
White Egret threw back her head
and regarded him steadily. Ankona
bowed his head.
"You heard all?" he questioned in a
strained voice.
"All," calmly. "It was childish prat
tle. I shall run for the White Egret,
for have I not said it, and has she not
made her promise? It is only when we
forget our promises that we become
weak and childish. Ankona is young
yet, and should be humored. I will
let him run the race with me, and 1
will give him one-third the distance
start as due to his weakness. Now,
go!"
They went,'with a single despairing
glance toward each other. Ankona's
face wa~Jion'less and set bloodless
with "pride crushed, set with foreknowl
edge of utter inability to cope with
this man of iron will affd strength.
Better be crushed than allowed to ex
ist by sufferance.
Other forms were appearing from
the forest—warriors in full headdress
and leggins, carrying the guns they,
had purchased from white traders
squaws with camp equipage, medicine
men stalking solemnly and mysterious
ly, with eyes bent upon the ground
children and dogs, some from the camp
on White River ba3r, some from Okee
chobee, some from the shifting camp
among the keys—all poming for the
great annual green corn dance, where
tribal laws were to be made, marriages
celebrated, and criminals punished.
These criminals were now moving
unwatched, unnoticed, in many cases
unknown, even, among the others.
Whtever crime they .had committed
during the year had gone unpunished
at the time, but now tribal honor
brought them here to expiate their
misdeeds. On the morrow they would
be placed in closely shut tents^and al
most suffocated .with steam made by,
pouring water upon hot stones. After
that they would drink of the black
draught. If they died, they were guilty.
On the other hand, if they were strong
enough to survive, their innocence
would be clearly established. Latar
the. racing for wives would take place.
Malabar was known to every one—
revered, feared, honored. All knew
that he was to race for a wife, and that
before the race he was to drink the
dreaded black draught. Ordinarily
they would have scoffed at such ab-
LORDSHIPS TO SPARE.
Snrpltu of Tilled Gentry Revealed by
the Moat Recent Stock
Taking.
The mysteries of the peerage of
this realm are many and deep. Much
•light is thrown upon this fascinating
subject in the new volume of "Dod':
Peerage" (Sampson Low), a work
which has been known in the par
lors of Mayfair for 63 years past,
states the London Mail of recent date.
In the first place, there are fat
more titles in existence than peers to
carry them. Consequently, there are
several peers who are blessed with
a multiplicity of titles. The duke
of Atlioll has 22' iUIcs, the duke of
Argyll 17, the duke of Hamilton 1C,
the marquis of Bute 15, the duke of
luccleuch 15, the duke of Abercoru
12, the marquis of Lansdowne 12.
Often the eldest son of a peer car
ries his father's second tit lep though
only by courtesy. But even here
there is no certainty for instance,
the heir apparent of the1 Lansdowne
family in alternate generations is
styled earl of Kerry, and the title
of Slielburne disappears from view.
Sometimes the courtesy title of a
"""'•'s heir-apparent or grandson has
I surdity, l'f a man drank and iiveA,
it would be a notable proof of
I strength but to drink and live and
then race for a wife! As to his crime,
it was only what any of them would
have done if brave eaough. He had
killed a man! True, but he'had been
provoked. He must be punished, for
that was the law, but they did not
wish him harm.
-And they all knew Ankona, the gen
tle one, the dreamei-and story maker,
and though none of them revered or
feared him, they all had a tender
place for him in their hearts. If he
could race with White Egret and win
her they would be glad. But Malabar.
came first, for White Egret herself
had made it so.
Malabar was the first who presented
himself for punishment. While he was
in the closed tent the tribe stood about
silent, with eyes furtively watching
the point whence t.lie condemned would
walk forth innocent or be brought
forth guilty.
At length the tent'flap was raised
and he staggered out. For a moment
he stood there in the sunlight, his
hand to his head, swaying blindly.
Then they saw him throw his shoul
ders back with a miglity^effort, as on©
whose will was strong enough to cast
off the weight of all things. Slowly
he turned away from them and strode
into the forest to be by himself. That,
too, was Malabar's way.
Not until the maidens were brought
forth did Malabar reappear.
"1 will race for my squaw at once,"
he called, in a voice that all could hear,
"before the White Egret grows weak
through waiting, and I shall give her
one-half the distance start because she
is a woman. Ankona will also enter
the race with me, and I wilt give him
one-third the distance because he is
but half a mau. Let them be placed."
The spectators stared and gasped.
Ankona, his rival, to enter the race and
to be given one-tliird the distance, and
White Egret, the fleet-footed, to be
given one-h&lf! No one could' win a
race thus handicapped. And yet was it
not Malabar?
He swept them with his glance.
"I shall win," he said, confidently,
"because I will have it so."
Ankona had been watching him with
baleful eyes. For an instant he drew
back as though to spurn the conces
sion. Then, as he saw White Egret be
ing l^d forward to her place, he hurried
to his own position.
And for a brief space after the signal
was-given and they were speeding on
IP HE COULID RACE "WITH WHITE
EGRET AND WIN HER.
with straining muscles, he h«,d a wild,
insane belief that he would win.
But only for a brief space. Then
came that steady, accelerating, impla
cable rush behind, drawing nearer and
nearer, then opposite, then passing.
When three-fourths of the distance had
been covered, Malabar was four march
paces ahead. Suddenly he turned.
White Egret "was almost within his
reach.
"Stop, Ankona!" Malabar called.
"Have I not. won?"
Ankona did not answer.
"Have I not won?" sternly.
"Yes, Malabar, you have won," An
kona answered, and his voice was full
of a great despair.
"It is well. Now you may go on and
catch the girl. Malabar willhave no
squaw who does not come to him will
ingly."
And he turned proudly from the
race and strode back into the forest.—

for instance. And at the present
moment nearly 100 peers, or more

NEW DAIRY INDUSTRY.
A Wealcyan Professor Experiment
ing to Discover Methods of Soft
CUeese Manufacture.
Few people in this country have any
idea of the great variety of products
covered by the name chee§e. Most
American cheeses are what are-called
hard cheeses European markets, how
ever,
Ndeal
in many kinds unfamiliar
to us, including a large class known
as soft cheeses, which keep only a
comparatively short time arid usual
ly possess extremely high flavors.
Everyone knows the Limburger' va
riety, the peculiar odor of which'has
given rise to to many newspaper jokes.
These soft cheeses form a series of
most delicious products, and the
cheaper kinds supply a most accept
able relish to the coarse food^s of Euro
pean peasants. Limburger cbeese.l^as
a considerable sale in this .country,
and, of late years, there lias been, an
increasing demand for the- ispecies
known as Roquefort and Camembert,
two of the. most, delicate and l»^h
priced of European brands. CamtAi
bert, Brie and Neufchtel cheeses are
now manufactured to a limited'extent
in the United States but the processes
by which they are made here are large
ly trade secrets and hence cannot be
employed by ordinary cheese makers.'
The United States department of
agriculture has learned that it re-v
quires only proper care and attention
to produce in this country other kinds
of cheeses of as high a grade as those
made in Europe. The Starrs' experi-,
ment station of Connecticut is at work
upon the problem of discovering and
making public practicable methods of
manufacture and the department of*
agriculture proposes to cooperate
with the experiment station in this
work.
The secret of soft cheese making is
probably a bacteriological one, and
the work is under the direction of Prof.
H. W. Conn, ofs Wesleyan university,
Middletown, Conn., who for years has
been studying the bacteriology of milk
products. The scientific part, of the
investigation is to be carried on in,the
laboratory of Wesleyan university.
Possibly the next few years will see
appearing in our markets varieties of
cheese quite new to the American pub
lic and, side by side with the produc
tion of these new cheeses, will g0 the
education of our taste in the enjoy
ment of these new products of:Ameri
can industry.
The Difficulty Located.
The farmer sells his milk for two
cents a quart, the baby who drinks it
pays eight. Two cents are for produc
tion, six cents for distribution. There
is something,wrong about that. I
found out the trouble one morning
when in New York. At four o'clock
a milkman came along, climbed the
stairs and left a pint of milk. His
wagon rattled away a quarter of "a
mile and delivered another pint. That
morning over 15 milk peddlers came
up the same stairs to deliver milk. We
have learned how to distribute letters,
but if we had the same system of dis
tribution in the mail service that we
have in the milk business every letter
would cost 25 cents postage.—-Benton
Harbor (Mich.)-News.
Alfalfa for Dairy Cows.
In a little feeding experiment, to-de
termine the valu& of alfalfa' against a
grain ration for dairy cows the former
came out with flying colors. While
the ration in which the protein was
supplied by grain produced slightly
more milk and butter than the alfalfa
ration, still the latter produced the
milk at 12.7 cents less the 100 than the
grain ration. Although a cow can
change grain protein into fat, still it
would not be wise to force her in this
way.—Rural World.
For breeding cows and calves, some
ferd, such as ground pats or bran
should be fed in conjunction with
bailey and wheat.
IP VALUE OF SKIM-MLLK.
When Used XnteliUre«tlr for Feeding
Purposes High Returns Result
from Its Use.
Many farmers seem to be slow to
realize the value of skim-milk for the
feeding of pigs and other animals. It is
perhaps partly due to a lack of judg
ment in regard to proper methods of
feeding it, and to not feeding it in
the right condition and quantity.
Hoard's Dairyman has been conduct
ing an investigation among the
creamery patrons in New York, and
in this investigation they found
many farmers who estimated the
value of the skim-milk at only ten
cents a hundred pounds. Possibly
in the way that some case for the
milk, this valuation would be high
enough but there is no excuse what
ever for milk being handled in this
way. When it is well handled any
man with average intelligence should
be able to get a very much higher
return for its use. It brings the
greatest returns when used in con
junction with grain foods where an
imals are old enough to eat the
grain.
H. B. Gurler, the noted Illinois
dairyman, made extended experi
ments to learn the value of cream
ery skim-milk, and he found that if
fed to shoats weighing 100 pounds, it
was worth 25 cents a hundred, when
pork is worth $4.50 per hundred live
weight.
A Wisconsin dairyman obtained the
following returns for his skim-milk
fed to Guernsey grade heifer calves:
At ten months old the calves were
thrifty, but not fat, and were sold
for $20 each. He fed them 4,000
pounds of sldm-milk each, and to
each a dollar's worth of oats and
a dollar's worth of flax seed meal.
He counted the calves worth tw» dol
lars when a week old, for tha"t was
what the calf buyers would paj- him.
Taking $4.00 out of the $20 to pay
for the infant calf, the oats and flax
seed meal, he had $16 left to credit
of the skim-milk.
The labor of feeding and care
would be about the same whether he
had fed it to calves or-- pigs. This
calculation would make the skim
milk worth 40 cents a hundred. The
oats and flax seed meal were charged
to the calf at just wiat they were
worth in the market. All this was
done with ordinary creamery skim
milk, but there was good calf sense
shown in feeding it. Thus we have
another proof of the money value of
intelligence.
The man who persists intending his
milk to the creamery in a filthy afid
half-sour condition, and when it re
turns feeds it to his calves in a soured
and partly decayed condition, need not
expect any such returns.

£ow, and when ready to feed the first
time, place a pail with the milk in
corner of the stable, 'supported by
a board nailed across one corner, just
high enough so that when the calf
stands in a natural position its nose
will touch the milk in the pail. The
calf kept in a closed stall, as shown
in cut. Push the calf's nose into the
milk and go away. We have never had
a calf treated this way that did not

Decrease In Milk Yield.
'Dairymen are orten puzzled in try
ing to locate the v-ause of sudden
falling off in milk yield of their
herds from one day to another. Fre
quently the yield will drop five or
more pounds per cow. An Indian
apolis milkman is reported as hav
ing experienced a sudden shortage
of 40, gallons on one day, which came
about under peculiar circumstances.
He was delivering 92 gallons, and
one morning met a man in the road
wh6 requested a sample of his milk
the next morning he had business at
the city hall and the day-following
he delivered~only 62 gallons of milk.
Dairy authorities have ascribed the
falling off in milk yield to various
causes, but we think none of them
have ever accused a milk inspector of
drying up the cows.—Jersey Bulletin.
To Relieve a Choked Cow.
A neighbor turned his cattle into.an
orchard with, fallen apples—a bad
place for cows. One cow became badly
choked with an apple. A neighbor
happened to have a piece of rubber
hose, about three feet long, rather
stiff. We greased this with lard, held'
tfie cow's head up, and .shoved the
hose down her throat, pushing the
apple down into the stomach. Apiece
of rubber hose is just, the thing for this
purpose, being flexible and soft, yet
stiff enough for the purpose.' Hogs
are tetter for the orchard than cows.
A little caution saves trouble and ex
pense in many instances.—Midland

HE STOPPED THE BELL.
And Gave the- Show's Chance, There

The requests for theater favors in the
small towns are very troublesome. Every
person of local standing feels that he has
aright to admission at least, while the trus
tees and the constable feel that they are
entitled to private boxes. Some of the
requests are decidedly unique, says the
Chicago Inter-Ocean.
Recently a company played a small
southern city. The manager was taking
the tickets at the door of the theater, and
the natives were struggling to get in. "Sud
denly," he tells, "a long, thin, bushy-chin
ned individual divided the folding doors
with his shoulder and whispered confi
dentially: 'I stop the bell.' 1 asked liim
to repeat. 'I stop the bell,' he said again
in a hoarse whisper. 'You will have'to
see the opera houSe manager and tell him
what you stop,' I said, reaching for tickets.
He tripped up several ladies while back

came in, saying: 'He's nU right, he stops
the bell.' I allowed him to go in, and
after the people were seated 1 asked the
local man what he meant by 'He stops the
bell.' 'Well,' said he, 'this man is the
janitor of the town hall, right opposite-,
and" on "show nights" he dees not ring nine
or ten on the town clock. You see,' lie
said, 'it would disturb the performance,'
and so the poor people do not know what

house is open. If I had "turned him down"
he would have rung out nine and ten every
half hour to get even.'
