WHY DO HOGS LIKE COAL?
It is supposed that material of a
gritty nature passing through the
stomach and intestines of hogs helps
to stimulate the flow of digestive
juices. Coal is not digested, but acts
as an absorbant and as a stimulant.
It probably makes life miserable for
stomach and intertlnal worms. Char
coal is also appreciated by hogs and
acts much in the same way as coal.

"Judge Landon Carter is in love

let the memory of Phil Gaines spoil
your whole life?"
"I wish that you would let me love
Phil without worrying over it."
"You are twenty-five, Anne, and

Anne picked up a little silver
frame on her desk. It held the pic
ture of a big, stalwart fellow with
eyes that laughed and mocked and
yet were tender.
"If you would put that picture

He is a man now. I have heard that
he is coming here on his honeymoon.
I hope he does, to disillusion you."
"Why do you insist upon marriage
"Because I want vou to be happv.
Marry Judge Carter! He is the
youngest man on the bench, good
looking and comes of a fine family.
You will never do better."

"Don't talk like that, Anne. It
makes my heart ache. Be happy!
You are beautiful and gifted. Anti

of life respond to your cooling touch.

When her mother left her Anne
held the picture in her two hands,
staring down in the eyes that
laughed aud mocked and vet were
under the rouge. The man who had
grown out of the bov she had ideal

wife! A wave of pity for the little
bride passed over her heart and
cleared it of all memory of Phil
Anne leaned over to whisper some
thing to the judge, then looked up
to faae Phil as he rose from the table.
"Anne," he cried eagerly, "how
good it is to see you again J"
"Bring your wife over here and
let her finish dinner with us," urged
Anne when she had greeted him. "It
will be lonely in this big city for
your bride while you are busy with
your friends, 60 I want the privilege
of taking care of her."
A sudden challenge flashed in
Phil's eyes and Anne met it un
flinchingly. "She is such a child, Phil ! You
must be very good to her."
"Yes," said Phil, looking down,
"I really want to make her happy.
I've made a bad beginning, Anne,"
he said, confessing his fault like a

think she is lovely. Then hurry and
see your man and get back in time to
join us for the opera." Anne felt
as if she had roused from an un
pleasant dream and was glad to be
awake once more.
"Anne," said Judge Carter, as his
big limousine whirled them swiftly
through the snowy streets from the
hotel where they had left Phil and
his bride, "I love you so and I need
you. I want you to make a homo
"You need me?" questioned Anne.
"Yes, dear. Every man dreams all
his life of one woman. You are
that woman to me. Fear that you
were unhappy kept me from speak
ing, but tonight you were so radiant,
so happy in your kindness to the
little bride, I dare to dream, to hope
of winning you. Could you learn to
care? What kind of a man could
you love ?"
"You," said Anne softly, a sud
den, illuminating happiness flood
ing her heart, "because you are you,
because vou will always rise to the
level of my need of you."
"And will you love me always?"
"Always," came the quiet answer,
