(Couyrltfltt. the by A PAINFUL ACCIDENT BRINGS TRUE ROMANCE TO THE PARSONAGE GIRLS MAYBE REAL LOVE Mr. Starr, widower Methodist minUter, it assigned to the con. gregation at Mount Mark, la. He hat five charming daughters. Pru dence, the eldest, keeps house for him. Fairy Is a college freshman. Carol and Lark, twins, are In high school. Constance Is the "baby." The activities of the Starr girls Prudence's work, Fairy's school af fairs, the pranks of the youngsters and the family perplexities make the story; it Is simply a recital of glorified homely incidents. The preceding installment described the capture of a notorious burglar In the parsonage and the reward promised the girls. CHAPTER VII Continued. 10 Mr. Starr on Thursday morning had taken tlio early eiistlmiiiid truln to jiurllriKton. He intended the evange listic services at the tabernacle In the afternoon fi tic evening, und then went lo bed ut till) hotel, lie slept lute the fiext morning. When he tinully ap peared the clerk cuine at once from behind the desk to speak to him. Two br three other puests, who hud been lounging iihout, drew neiir. "We've just been rending nbout your flrls. sir," sulci the clerk respectfully. It's a pretty nervy little bunch! You must be proud of them !" i "My girls!" ejaculated Mr. Stnrr. 1 "Ilnven't you seen the morning pa per? You're Mr. Stnrr, the Methodist minister ut Mount Mark, aren't you?" ' "I ntn! I'.ut whnt has happened to piy Rirls? Is anything wrong? (Jive Die I he paper!" Five minutes later Mr. Starr and hi suitcase were In a taxlcal) speedin toward Cnlon station, and within eight minutes he was en route for Mount Murk white In the face, shaky In th knees, but tremendously proud in spirit. Arriving at Mount Mark, lie was In Etnntly surrounded by an exclamatory crowd of station loungers. The name of I'nidencp was upon every tongue, pnd her father heard it with satisfuc tion. In the parsonage lie found at least two-thirds of the Ladles' Aid so ciety, the trustees and the Sunday- school superintendent, along with a miscellaneous assortment of ordinary members, mixed up with Presbyterians, ISaptlsts and a few uuclussifled outsid ers. And I'rudeuce wus the center of attraction. She was telling tlie "whole story. for perhaps the fifteenth time that morning, but she broke oft when her father hurried in and flung her arms nbout him. "Oh, pupn," she cried "they mustn't praise me. I had no Idea there was u burglar in the house when I ran down the stairs, and 1 hon estly can't see that much credit is due me." 1 But Mount Mark did not take It no calmly. And as for the Methodist church well, the Presbyterian people used to say there was "no living with those Methodists, since the girls caught a burglar In the parsonage." Of course It was important, from the Methodist point of view. Pictures of the par sonage and the church were In all the papers for miles around, and at their very next meeting the trustees decided to get the plnno the Sunday school had been needing for the last hundred years ! When the five hundred dollars ar rived from Chicago, Prudence felt that personally she had no real right to the money. "We must divide it," she in sisted, "for I didn't earn It a bit more than any of the others. But It Is perfectly glorious to have five hundred dollars. Isn't It? Did you ever have five hundred dollars before? Just take It, father, and use It for whatever we need. It's family money." Neither the younger girls nor their futher would consent to this. But when Prudence pleaded with thera ear nestly, they decided to divide It. "I will deposit two hundred and fifty dollars for the four younger ones," he paid, "und that will leuve you as much." So It was settled, and Prudence was a happy girl when she saw it safely put away in the bank. CHAPTER VIII. Romance Comes. Sometimes, Methodists, or Presbyte rians, or heretics whatever we may be we are irresistibly Impelled to the conclusion that things were simply bound to happen ! However slight the cause still that cause was predestined from the beginning of time. A girl may by the sheerest accident step from the street car a block ahead of her destination an Irritating accident. But as she walks that block she may meet an old-time friend, and a stranger. And that stranger-Nih, you can never convince - the girl that her stepping from the car too soon was not ordered when the foundations of the world were laid. . After ail, It was very simple. Across the street from the parsonage lived a , fclrl named Muttie Moore a common, Unlovely, unexciting girl, who taught n country school five miles out from town, and rode to and from her school, morning and evening, on a bicycle. One evening, early In June, when the jworld was fair to look upon, it was foreordained that Prudence should be turning In at the parsonage gate Just lis Mattie Moore whirled up, opposite, on her dusty wheel. Prudence stopped o Interchange polite Inanities with her h?lghhor, and Mattie, wheeling the bl jcycle lightly beside her, came across fhe street and stood beneath the pur konuge maples with Prudence. They talked of the weather, of the coming summer, of Mnttle's school, rejoicing that one more week would bring free HUESTQN TAN NL Hobba-Merrlll Cuiniiuiiy.) dom from books fur Mattie und the younger parsonage girls. Then Mild Prudence: "Isn't It great fun to ride a bicycle? I love It. Nome- time will you let me ride your win-el?' "Why, certululy. You may ride now If you like." "No," said Prudence slowly, "I used to ride, but am afraid It would not do now. Some of the members might see me, and well, I am very grown up, you knew. Of course." she added hastily. "It Is different with you. You ride for business, but It would be noth ing but u frolic with me. I want to go early In the morning, when the world Is fast asleep. Let me take it tomor row morning, will you?" "Yes, of course you may," was the hearty answer. "You may stay out as long as you like. I ulwuys sleep late on Saturdays." So Prudence delightedly tripped up the parsonage board walk, wheeling the bicycle by her side. She bid It carefully In the woodshed, fur the twins were rash and venturesome. But after she had gone to bed, she con tiiled her plan to Fairy. "I'm going at six o'clock, and, Fairy, if I am a little late, you'll get break fast for papa amf the girls, like a dear, won't you?"- Fairy promised. And early the next morning Prudence, In red sweater jacket and cap, set out upon her secret ride. It wus a magnificent morning, and Prudence sang for pure delight as she rode swiftly along the country roads, guided only by her own caprice. She knew it was growing late, "but Fuiry'll get breakfast," she thought, comfortably. Finally she turned In a by-road lead ing between two rich hickory graves. Dismounting at the top of a long hill, she gazed anxiously around her. No one wus In sight. The nearest house was two miles behind, and the road was long and smooth and Inviting, and the hill was steep. Prudence yearned for a good, soul-stirring coast, with her feet high on the framework of the wheel, and the pedals flying around beneath her skirts. It seemed safe. The only living thing in sight was a sober-eyed, serious mule peace fully grazing near the bottom of the hill. Prudence laughed gleefully, like a child. She never laughed again in ex actly that way. "Here goes !" she cried, and, leaping nimbly Into the "Sometime Will. You Let Me Ride Your Wheel?" snddle, she pedaled swiftly a few times, and then lifted her feet to the coveted, position. The pedals flew around beneath her, and the wind whistled about her in a most exhila rating wuy. But as she neared the bottom the placid mule suddenly stulked Into the middle of the roud. Prudence screamed, Jerked the handlebar to the right, to the left, and then, with a sickening thud, she struck the mule head first, and bounced on down to the ground, with a little cry of puin. The bicycle crushed beside her, and the mule, slightly startled, looked around at her with ears raised In silent questioning. Then he ambled slowly across the road. and deliberately continued his graziug. Prudence tried to raise herself, but she felt sharp pain. She heard some one leaping over the fence near her, and wondered, without moving her head, If It could be a tramp bent on highway robbery. The next Instant a man was leaning over her. "It's not a tramp," she thought, before he had time to speak. 'Are you hurt?" he cried. "You poor child 1" Prudence smiled pluckily. "My ankle Is hurt a little, but I am not a child." The young man, In greut relief, laughed aloud, mid Prudcncu joined him rather finally. "I'm tifajild I nm not walk," she unlit. "I believe I've broken my ankle, innyhx j i.iy Whole leg, for nil 1 know. It hurts pretty badly!" "Lie down like this," be wild, helping her to a mure comfortable position, "lu not move. Mny ' examine your fool?" She shook her head, but he removed the shoe regardless of her bemlshiike. "1 believe It is sprained. 1 urn mire the bono In not broken. But bow In the world will you get home? Ilow far Is It to Mount Mark? Ik that where you live?" "Yes" considering "yes, I live there, and II must be four miles, any how. What shall I do?" Hi answer, be pulled off his coat, and arranged It curefully by the side of the rond oil the grass. Then jerking open the bag he bad carried, lio took out u few towels, and three soft shirts. Hastily rolling them together for a pil low, bo added It to the bed pro teui. Then he turned again to Prudence, i "I'll carry you oer here, and fir you us comfortably as 1 can. Then I'll go to the nearest house and get a wagon to take you home." Prudence was not shy, and realizing that bis plnn was the wise one, she made no objections when ho came to help her across the road. "I think I can walk If you lift me up." I But the first movement sent such a twinge of pain through the wounded ankle that she clutched III 1 1 1 frantically and burst into tears. "It hurts," she cried, "don't touch me." Without speaking, ho lifted her ns gently us he could and carried her to the place he had prepared for her. "Will you be warm enoegh?" he nsked, after be bad stood looking awkwardly down upon the sobbing girl us long as he could endure It. "Yes," nodded Prudence, gulping down the big soli rising In her throat. 'I'll run. This confounded cross-cut Is so out of the way that no one will pass here for hours, I suppose. Now lie us comfortably as you can, and do not worry. I'm going to run." Off he started, but Prudence, left alone, was suddenly frightened. "Please, oh, please," she called after blni. nnd when he came back she burled her face In shame, deep In the linen towel. "I'm afraid," she whispered, crying again. "I do not wish to lie left alone here. A snake might come, or a tramp." ( He sat down besido her. "You're nervous. I'll stay with you until you feel better. Someone may come this way, but It Isn't likely. I cut through the hickory grove to save n mile. That' how I happened to find you." He smiled n little, and Prudence, remem bering the nature of her accident. Hushed. Then, being Prudence, she laughed. i "It was my own fault. I had no busi ness to go coasting down like that. But the mule was so stationary. It never occurred to me that he contemplated , moving for the next century at least. He was a bitter disappointment." She looked down the roadside where the mule wus contentedly grazing, with never so much us u sympathetic glance at his victim. . : 'I'm afraid your bicycle Is rather 1 badly done up." i Do you believe that Prudence could be made to believe there was such a thing, as love at first sight?

FINED FOR WEARING BEARDS , I History Tells of English Judge's Or- 1 der for Compulsory Shaving of Barristers in His Court 1 I Nowhere was there more prejudice ! against beards than at the Inns court : of centuries ago. The black books of : Lincoln's inn of the sixteenth century nre full of referene.es to offenders who were "fyned double comens durrynge such tyme us they shul have any nerue. unis proving Ineffective, a i butch of bearded barristers was in 1554 j "banysshed from ye Howse," and . shortly afterwurd a Judge's order was I obtained for the compulsory shaving of some of the members. The Inner j Temple benchers were not quite so se- j vere, for n fine of 20 shillings wus the sole penulty imposed in 1555 "for I weurying beardes of more than three I weekes growthe." The war against j bearded barristers continued at the I Inns of Court until the seventeenth century. Long after this the prejudice against the unshuved barrister remained. The lute Vice Chancellor Bacon carried his dislike so far that he refused to listen to beurded or mustached counsel, pre tending that he could not hear them. Even now, although there are plenty of bearded barristers und K. C.'s, few huve attained eminence. The most brilliant exception was perhaps the lute Judnh Philip Benjamin, "silver tongued Benjamin," who, despite his mustache and American "goatee,", earned the princely income of $35,000 a year.

A mirror which magnifies at any dis tance without distorting the lines or the focus of the object reflected has been perfected by nn Erie (Pa.) manu facturer. The mirror Is particularly adapted to the needs of mechanics In looking underneath or in back of ob jects, but Is also a practical household article. As It reflects a white light. It Is said to recommend Itself particular ly to the examination' of Internal or un derneath mechanical purts which are difficult to readjust unless taken to the light for examination.

Be sure to thin plants that come up too thickly. If allowed to grow too closely together they will be spoiled for life.

By ELIZABETH VAN BENTHUYSEN. I am Impressed In my study of the drift of landscape work and amateur gurdening with the trend that is being shown In the direction of reviving the fountain as a means of decoration.

The bubonic plague of today I Men tb'ul with the blin k I 1 li of the mid dle ages. Primarily u illneaae of ro dents, ciiuh,-i by u short dumb bell shaped microscopic vegetable, the pent hmillim. It occur In nuui In three forms, the pneumonic, which bus a death rate of almost lim per cent ; the septleaeinlc, which Is iienrly us fatal, and the bubonic, in which even with the most modern methods of treatment the mortality is ubout Ml per cent. It Is u ill sen hi of commerce, spreading around the globe In the body of the I shlp-horn rat. It Is estimated that every case of human plague costs the municipality In which It occurs at least J7,Mio. This does not take into account the enormous losa due to dis- j istroiis (piarantines und the rummer- i ial paralysis which the fear of the j disease so frequently produces. Thi' disease Is now treated with a serum discovered through the gcnlu of Yersln. Tills Is used In much the same wuy us Is diphtheria anti-toxin. Plague Is transferred from the Kick rodent to the well man by Mens. The sick rat has enormous numbers of Iilagiie bacilli In lis Mood. The blood is taken by the Hen, which, leaving the ick rat, seeks refuge und sustenance hi the body of a human being, to whom It transfers the Infection. Since plague Is a disease of rodents md since It Is carried from sick n dents to well men by rodent lleas, safe ty from the disease lies In the exclu sion of rodents, not only exclusion from the habitation of man but ulso from the ports nnd cities of the world. Those who dwell In rut-proof surround ings take no plague. Not only should man dwell In rat-proof surroundings, but be should also live lu rat-free sur roundings. The day is past when the rodent served a useful purpose as the unpaid city scavenger. Bats will not come when; there Is no food for them. Municipal cleanliness may be regard ed as a partial insurance against .iliigue. The prayer that no plague 'line nigh our dwelling is best an--wcred, however, by rat-proofing the niliitatl.ins of man. Modern sanitary ience has evolved a simple and ettl 'icnt weapon against the pestilenca vhich walketh in darkness and strik ili at noonday, and the United States iiublie health service has pnt tlris -now ledge into practical operation and 'bus speedily eradicated plague, vherever It has appeared in the Unit I'd States.

When the diver left his perch, plur.jrcd head downward Into a small tank on the ground, and "scooped" out mto the ground like a flash, the music broke Into a lively strain.
