'V-f- CHAPTER IX.-r
THE tNCEPTIOl* OF "UNCf.B THEODORE."
HEODORE'S mind, habituated
to the airy ease of an tinut
tered faith In bla maRtcrshlp
of the air. felt the galling of
reality as he walked westward from
the station toward dilapidated Car
son's Landing.
8eated on a stump, he sought mental
adjustment before entering his bouse.
He had bad his chance with Sbayne.
"the prince of the powers of the air,"
and had thrown It away In hot words
to Sbayne, la a blow to Sllberberg and
by leaping from the Roc Into tbo un
known abyss of night. These were
actualities. The broken deflector of
the parachute he carried proved that,
as did the memory of his foolishness
over Shayne's niece, now bapplly for
ever past.
Mr. Waddy's money and Mr. Craig
head's telegrams saved the day.
The first three yellow dispatches had
come In one delivery at Nashville, ad
dressed to "Theodore Carson, the Illus
trious Inventor- and Thaumaturge,
Care Conductor, Train 75." Theodore,
the Illustrious, could not accumulate
the courage to ask for them, but the
wise conductor had pounced suddenly
upon him and said, "1 reckon you're
Mr. Carson."
"Yield not to temptation, fear or cold
feet," the flrst read. "Your Uncle Ful
ler Is at the helm." This was signed
"The Great Uncalled." with the first
two words run together as "Thegreat"
In a telegraph operator's effort to re
duce to the semblance of a name Mr.
Craighead's nom de guerre. The sec
ond ran: "Have no fear. Monopoly Is
as clear in the air as on the land.
Apologies to Sir Humphrey Gilbert
None to any one else by a dern sight,
Conspuez Shayne." This, was signed
"Craighead, the Legal Bloodhound."
"An old Broom," ran the more mys
terious next "albeit minus one cover
and dog's eared, nevertheless sweeps
clean. He yokes the whirligig to our
car and sweeps the howling skies!"
(Signed) "Dandy Jim of Caroline Gray
bill." The fourth, delivered at Bir
mingham, was addressed to General
Theodore Carson, M. A. ("Monopolist
of the Air"), and consisted of ten
repetitions of "Eureka," signed "D. J.
of C."
The last came at Bay Mlnette and
was too astonishing t? be explained on
any theory consistent with Craighead's
sobriety and sanity. "Caroline's dad,"
It read, "falls dead at unveiling of
Broom Idea. Sees absolute cinch and
rises to it as per lifelong custom.

copious. Up to you to produce flier.
Getting wabbly In bead. Losing faith
In yon as concrete entity. Have you
any aeronef? Answer 'Yes' or 'No' at
once." This also was signed "D. J. of
Caroline."
What could he mean by an "an old
Broom?" The o'd copy of Broom's Le
gal Maxims In Craighead's "library"
was Indeed minus a cover and dog's
eared, but how this "Broom" could,
even In metaphor, yoke the whirligig
to any car and- sweep the bowling
skies Carson could' not guess. Mr.
Waddy's demand for aeronautical mo
nopoly was being complied with, to
Mr. Craighead's mind, and the last
telegram seemed to Imply that the bu
colic financier bad been convinced. His
"falling dead" might mean mucb or
little, but his "doubloons coming co
pious" was eloquent of faith. And
what In the name of all the gods at
once could a "Universal Nitrates and
Air Products company" mean In an
aerial navigation deal or those mys
terious expressions about "surround
ing" Chicago and Greater New York?
Well, Aunt Cbloe was in there, shuf
fling about, wondering where be might
be, and here he was. looking on spec
trally and unsuspected. With the com
mon human Impulse to secret ap
proach, Theodore walked on, conceal
ed between the Spanish bayonets and
a somber line of red cedars, climbed
the end of the veranda, scuttled into
the broad hall and up to his room, Into
which he stepped quickly, breathing a
little .harder. He opened the, closet
for a change of clothes and started
back In wonderment quite as paralys
ing as horror, for his clothes were
gone. Instead there sat a huge trunk
with its lid back. Its open tray full of
silken hosiery, corsets, laces, gloves,
handkerchiefs and openwork things
of mystery and terror. On the hooks
were many, many others quite as aw
ful. frilled and tucked and ruffled and
plaited garments, silks, dimities, cash
meres. linens, cottons and soft light
woolens, filling his closet and spread
against the wall for occult reasons con
nected with keeping them In shape,
and protruding from, the trunk were
more clothes, while In corners of the
bedroom were more trunks.
A light step sounded, and be froze
to a statue of panic and trance and
paralysis. Some one entered. His
heart bounded and then stood still, for
It was Psyche of the dunes, Shayne's
niece, Virginia, entering Jauntily,
maddeningly, like a real woman tak
ing possession of bis bedroom her

own! She had a little subjectively de
rived smile on her Hps. held In her
hands a spray of huckleberry blooms,
which she put to her nostrils and tben
stuck in vase by tbe old mirror.
"Psyche!" he stammered.
With a little scream she darted to
ward the door, recognized him as be
emerged from the closet, noted his
paleness, turned back, her hand on ber
breut' and a quick pnlpltntlun Id the
"V" of her gown, like tbe beart of a
snared robin. Yet she was tbe least
excited of tbe twain. Her alarm cens
ed with her recognition of him.
"My robber," said sbe in a half
whisper. "Oh. I'm so glnd!"
"Psyche," said he, "wben you say
you are glad"—
"Oh, I'm so glad you aren't dasbed
to pieces!" she cried. "I've seen you
falling, falling, falling, in tny dreams
and never alighting! But evidently
you did!"
"Yes," said he, "quite safe. But how
came you here?"
"Oh, I live here," said she. "But
how did you know? Or did you Just
happen? Shall I hide you? I'll never
betray you, never, no matter what they
say you've done!"
"You—belong—here?" repeated The
odore wonderingly. "Here? You—you
lire here?"
"Yes," said she hurriedly—"with
my uncle. I couldn't endure the
Shaynes and SUberbergs nny longer.
Why, tbe way they did Just drives
people to crime! And if you did any
thing it was in open war wltb the of
ficers and not by stealth as the
8baynes and SUberbergs do. I told
them so to tbelr teeth—only you ought
to reform and all that, you know.
And I couldn't bear Aunt Marie any
more," here tbe voice trembled, "though
everybody will say I'm ungrateful and
all that. And General Carson's family
are all my relatives In the world, ex
cept tbe 8baynes. And tills is tbelr
plantation—my uncle that 1 never saw
lives here—and I came to him. I liope
he won't hate me I'd rather not have
to ask him to shelter a robber tbe very
flrst thing, and so I hope you aren't
pursued. But If you are I'll bide you
before I'll see you caught There!"
Mr. Carson reeled back against the
wall, drew his bands across bis eyes
and looked again. Sbe seemed to be
there still, rather nearer than before,
hands clasped in adorable anxiety, dl
vinest pity In her eyes.
"Of course It's a shock." said Miss
Suarez. "to find you"—
"I am sorry." Bald Theodore, "to have

"Oh, now," said Miss Suarez. "Try

"The very word." said she. "Why.

"Thank you. Miss Virginia. I"—
"Don't Interrupt, please. Our dan

"The quality of unclebood," said she.
"You don't create the role. I suppose

had established Miss Suarez, be bad

reconsidering, laid demanded of Chloe
an explanation of the Incomprehensible
mystery of tbe presence, under 4 state
ment that she lived there, of Shayne's
niece.
"She's come to live with we all,"
sold Aunt Chloe. "She's kin o* ou'n."
Theodore gasped.
"There must be some mistake," said
he. "How can sbe be related to me,
Chloe?"
"W'y, yo' some klne o' uncle to bub,"
replied Chloe. "Hub motliab was a

"But sbe didn't know I was here?"
Theodore suggested.
"Oh, law, no," replied Aunt Chloe.
"She don't know yo' Mistah Carson ylt
onless yo' tole hub."
"But, Aunt Chloe, we aren't any kin
to old General Carson, are we? And
I'm no uncle to this young lady, am
I?"
Aunt Chloe was indignant.
"Hev Ab been wuckln' fob po' whites

"What have you told her about this
relationship?" said Theodore.
"She knowed all erbout It"
"Did she know how father—how no

"Who you mean by nobody?" que

Uncle Theodore was stately, cere
monious and. with due allowance for
sundry blushes wben Miss Virginia
emitted a little giggle, promptly
smothered in her napkin, quite grand
in bis demeanor at luncheon. He
formally kissed Virginia's bund, and
when sbe told of ber need, of ber re
liance on the Carson fidelity, be yield
ed to the temptation without a mo
ment's hesitation. He became her un
cle, entered calmly upon the deception,
obllvlous'of tbe vast consequences in

"1 have the honab," said he, "to

She rose as if at a formal signal for

kissed hi in on the forehead. There

BACK TO
THE FARM
XI.—Rural Education—The
Agricultural College.
(Copyright, 1910, by American Press Asso
elation.J
N 18C2 congress passed a law ap
propriating money for tbe estab
lishment of colleges of apicul
ture and mechanic arts. Today
there are sixty-seven such institutions
in tbe United States. The establish
ment of tbe agricultural colleges open
ed up an entirely uew field of educa
tion. The study of science and the ap
plication of that sclcnce to tbe prob
lems of everyday life began to take the
place of the study of classics. Edu
cating a man merely to have him edu
cated began to go out of style, and tho
truer education that better tits a mau
to tackle tbe problems of life took its
place.
I
The growth of the agricultural col
leges was slow at first, and not until
within the last fifteen years have they
STUDYING FAIIM MACHINERY AT AN AGBI
CUIiTUltAI, COLLEGE.
really come to fill the place for which
they were designed. At first tbe idea
of educating a farmer was laughable
to many people who rejoiced in a lit
tle learning. Even tbe farmer him
self did not realize tbe advantage of a
college education to man who must
make a living from tbe soil. I( took a
good many years to bring people to re
alize that college education is as val
uable for a farmer as for a doctor or
a lawyer. The main difference Is that
tbe law compels a man to
get
a col­
lege diploma before he starts to prac
tice medicine, while he may start
farming wltb notblng but a team and
a plow.
Even at the present time there are
many men both on the farm and In
the cities who doubt the value of a
college education for the farmer.
Many a farm boy Is squarely con
fronted with the problem of choosing
between four years in college or start
ing to farm at once. Four years Is a
long time to a young man. Fifteen
hundred to $2,000 is a largo sum of
money to him. To spend both for a
college education requires a great deal
of courage and faith in the future.
The amount of money necessary to
pay four years' expenses iu cpllege
will enable tbe young man to start
farming on a rented farm. The four
years will. If he Is Industrious, enable
him to earn enough to make a good
sized payment on a farm of his own.
If he goes lo college he will have
nothing at the end of the four years
but the experience and knowledge he
has gained there. Is it worth It?
I have put this question squarely to
dozens of men In their last year at
an agricultural college. Without ex
ception they say that it Is worth the
outlay. Not one regretted the time
or tlie money which be bad bartered
fpr his education. Few of them placed
it on a money basis alone, but even
from that standpoint they considered
that the chances were In favor of the
vollege man.
The boy who starts farming for him
self without any education will run up
against a good many snags which the
college man will miss. He will learn
by experience many of the things
which tbe college man learns in
school. In doing so he will pay much
dearer for his knowledge. Tbe old
prejudice against "book farming''- is
fast disappearing. People are coming
to realize that book farming Is merely
the fused experience of successful
farmers everywhere, explained and
Illumined by the light of science. Prob
ably iu no one respect is tbe advan
tage of tbe college man more clearly
apparent thnn in the case of soil fer
tility. Long after the untrained mnn
has begun to notice and wonder at
the decline of his crop yields tbe man
who has studied the science of soil
fertility will be raising undiminished
crops. The art of keeping up the
soil fertility cannot be learned from
the uelgbbors, for they have not prac
ticed it It cannot be learned from
father or grandfather, for in their
day the fertility of the soil was con
sidered Inexhaustible.
Tbe success of the agricultural col
lege graduate cannot be measured In
money alone. The agricultural com
munities Just' now ueed leaders much
more than they ueed men who can
simply make money ou tlietr own
farms. It is necessary for tbe agri
cultural college graduate to succeed on
his own farm, of course. His every
move is closely watched by critical
neighbors. Even tbe shadow of a
failure starts a chorus of "1 told you
so."
Success ou bis owu farm is the flrst
essential to the young mau who would
be a leader. Given that for backing,
he can do almost anything be wants
to with his community. Farmers have
a vast deal of respect for tbe man
A
$:-.? "r
who can do things. Tbeir prejudice
against college farming is lost iu ad
miration for tbe results achieved by
tbe college farmer. If he advises or
ganizing a club they are willing to
Join in and belp. If he tells tbem tbe
school needs reorganizing tliey are
willing to be convinced. They may
even conscnt to bringing two or tlireo
schools together nnd uslug tho money
saved to hire bettor teachers. The in
spiration of one man's success and tbe
energy imparted by bim is sutllcient to
start a whole community to thinking.
Once you get a man to thinking, there
Is no need.to worry further about him.
He will take core of himself.
If an energetic young farmer wltb
an agricultural education could be
placed in each township throughout
tho farming sections the results would
be an enlightened agriculture that
would be tbe envy of the whole
world. A leading educator recently
made the statement that three live
agricultural college graduates could in
ten years increase the value of the
land in any agricultural county $20
per acre. That sounds incredible, but
It is literally true. Tho community
would become so progressive that it
would be worth $20 an acre more to
live there.
The charge has been made that ag
ricultural college graduates do not go
back to the farm. Tho facts do not
bear out this assertion. WliHe the
percentage "varies, it is safe to say
that fully 50 per cent of the graduates
go directly to the farm. The others
go into some work closely related to
farming. In my acquaintance with
young men just finishing college I
have known of very few who were
uot anxious to go to farming. A good
many of them do not do so because of
lack of capital. They have spent all
their money in college, nnd it looks to
them like uphill business to start
farming without a cent. They are
overwhelmed \\*ltli offers of salaried
positions at salaries of from $1,000 to
$2,000 a year to start with. Experi
ment stations, agricultural colleges,
agricultural papers and manufacturers
of agricultural products are all looking
for agricultural college gruduates.
Many of the men go into some work
of this kind until they can save money
enough to start farmings
Of the college graduates who do
take up farming as a business the
greater number rent the home farm
or go Into partnership with their re
spective fathers. This is the Ideal
way for a youug man to get a start
Under such favorable circumstances
he canuot help but succeed. Often,
however, there are enough brothers
at home to occupy all the land. The
young college farmer must look else
where for a job. Every year the agri
cultural colleges are receiving a larger
number of calls for farm managers.
Many of these offers are exceedingly
