Marina had been nittlng on the long veranda of the Corsican farmhouNe. the lighted lamps placing Home tlngeM of ruby In her dark brown hair and giving color to the light roßtunie that onhanccM her lovellncMa. Quietly entering from the house, riprlano Dnnclla. coMtmned In the old time, romantic Corsican garb, gazes upon the exquisite girl outlined hv the light costume. The eagerness of tils glance draws Mrs. Anstrulhcr’s eyes to him. She looks up and snys: "Ah. Count Clprl utio. It was very noble of you. who I had feared would hate me. to rescue me from the ’Lucchese.’ At your ad vice, I have rested here, hut to-mor row. notwithstanding the romantic :d<nade you have provided for me. J must go on to Hast la." fyh. yes. to Itnatla." murmurs the count softly, and stepping nearer, snvs auavely, though there Is a weird sug gestion In Ills voice that soniewhnt dis quiets the lady: "We are alone here lu my old farmhouse, only old Martha, the cook, who, far away, will snore till dawn, and my nephew. Count Enrico." "I haven't seen him." remarks the girl uneasily. "Parblou, you did once, tho gentle man with the scar upon his face, the «ine who delivered the letter that caused your nerves to Jump in the Marseilles railroad station. Even now Ills name seems to have an 111 effect upon you," for Mnrlna has started up, and tho fluttering of her light skirts shows her limbs are trembling. "Mia Madre, was he the man?" she shudders. "And was It you who penned it?" Then some divination entering her mind, she Implores pathetically: "Holy Virgin, no harm has come to Kdwln? Have I not kept tho cruel pact? Have I not deserted my dear husband? It was the promise of that awful letter that no «vll should come to Edwin If I left his arms." "Ah, hut you Intended to return to them, bella min." smiles the gentle man. The young wife scarcely heeds the Insinuation of the subtle Italian term, but stammers confused: "Why do you think that?” "Ma fol, you were Journeying to Has tin to meet your husband, lured there by a telegram I directed to be sent to you from that place," whispers the coun^signiflcantly. "The telegram was false? Edwin Is * not in Corsica? Kdwln is safe? Madre di Dio. 1 thank thee!” Maiinus voice rings with a hope that produces a su preme Joy In Clpriano's occult tulud. This lady upon whom he has set his fervid heuit, is courage personified us regards her own safety, hill the great love she bears this Kngllshuiuu makes her tluild for him. *Tls Danella’s plan to use for Its own destruction this gen erous and mighty love. "That's what 1 wish to discuss with you." he observes quietly, guziug upon u fuco to whleh each wave of passion adds such loveliness that lie cannot restrain the monstroua proposition on Ills tongue. It breuks forth. "My poor brother loved you. hut you guve him death." he W'hlspers passionately. "1 love you. hut, per ltaccho, you will not give me death—hut love!" "Urn*? liii|»osslble?" Marina sturts from him wildly; then scorn coming to her eyes and volet*, remarks liaughil ly: "You are s|M-akiug to a wedded wife. Monsieur." "Not legally wedded. ! have lio|m-s. My brother, poor Musso. |H-rchance by his Ups 111 private gave his consent to your nuptials, hilt of that I have uo proof. There Is no written document.

Ills authority as your guardian |niss«-h to me.** "JMsh! 1 was wedded In Musso's very presence." answers the girl, proudly; then cries: "I am Edwin Gerard An struther's wife, by the church and by my hive." ’* ‘TIs a pity: you coiii|k-I me to make you his widow." "Edwin's widow?" At that awful word. Murlna shudders and sinks over come Inin a chair. "Listen to me!" t’lprlano's voice Is deep wiih menace, yet soft with pas sion. "On the further cliff down the roust are quurries nf dazzling hued green Orcxza marble that Is taken from this Islnnd to deck palaces." "Orezzu mnrhle. what bus that In . do with Edwin's life?" half scoffs the | girl. | "Hut It may have something to do with his dentil." observes Ilanella. "For the blasting of the rock is used much dynamite. I have robbed the quarries and have mined the base of yonder turret with the explosive. In It I are three men: one. old Tomasso. , whose knife entered my brother’s i heart; the other, an American detec j live who bus placed his Yankee nosu Into this vendettu. unfortunately for himself. Emory Is In thut turret. You ( will give something for these men’s | lives?" "For Emory and dear old Toiiiuhmo? Certainly—anything in reason." The ; lovely eyes are filled with a strange alarm. "Ah, but it must not he in reason— It must he In a passion as exalted as my own —for you. When I direct my nephew, who Is hound to me not only hy ties of blood, hut of gratitude, and ' who Is Inllumcd against you all hy his oath of vendetta for the murdered Musso. he will light the fuse lending | to tho mine, and puff!—that tower, with every man who’s In It. goes Into the nlr!" j "Murderer!” shudders .Marina, who' has listened astounded. "Ah. you have sympathy for these I [»oor fellows! That Is well; 1 shall love you more for your tender heart," . continues Clprinno softly. "Hut the luw!" half screams the lady. "Pah —In Corsica—ln a vendetta. Hesldes. the biown-up tower will be thought hut another outrage of the rioting 'Lucchese.' Oil, this Is no worse j than dagger thrusts or blows from bullets which always come in a blood feud. And In that mined turret," Ci-1 prlano'K voice Is low but terrible, "there Is another man, who following the cyclamen flowers you dropped In the road nnd n few more we added to lead him Into that fatal tower —" "Edwin!” Marina s limbs hardly up hold her. "Tho man you foolishly call hus band.” The Anger of the suavo wooer points to the turret’s upper floor. Then the gume Is on! Her eyes following his gesture, a shuddering cry, low. broken, despair ing yet full of tenderest love, issues from the girl’s Ups that have now be come white ns death Itself: "Edwin, my husband—my flowers brought you to this—following for love of me—” “He is caught like a rat In my trap!” smiles the count. "Not without warning, wretch!" She would spring from the veranda ( and run over to the base of the tower i and call up to the man whose face she | sees outlined uguiust the grillage of , the upper window, through whose Iron I bars lie Is struggling to force his way. Hut Clpriano’s strong hand elutebea 1 her white arm; he pulls her hack into j the seat and commands: "Not until you’ve heard my words, which may save Ills life!" "Ills life? Tell me!" "I have explained you ure not legal ly this man's s|Mtiise." Cipriuno's voice J Is trembling with desire, "llecome | mine? 1 hud purposed in Nice to give you a very cruel death for what you hud to do with my brother's killing, but when I suw your heunlles and knew lliul llie little child I hud once seen hud growu into a Venus, hut no marble one. to myself I said: ‘Corpo di Itucctio, 'tin lu the blood of the lluiiel luh to love tills woman. lam enumored of her as wildly as poor dead Musso. 'TIs u medieval idea; Instead of slay ing her. I'll have revenge in winning her—against herself, the wife—also against the husband.'* "Not uguiust Edwin! You have uo cause of hute uguiust him." "Vendettas are cuused hy love us well us hale! lie dares to call you wife. Each moment my eye rests ii|»oii you Increases thy sweetness to me. You are Corsican—so am I—no for eigner should stand between us.” "Holy Virgin, you expect mo to love you?" stumniers the girl. To this he answers with Machiavel lian subtlety: "Of course uot now. hut that may come In time. At pres ent you love Edwin! Itecuuse of this devoted love—to save this gentleman you adore—you give yourself to mo." At his hideous mathematics the girl utters a cry of horror. "If you would save the life of this Englishman whom I should dl*|»atch hy my oath of the vendetta, at once your kisses. "Would Edwin wish to live, his wife untrue? Monster!" Marliia's face hlaxex with shuttle. "Oh. no. not monster: simply u man who bus gone crazy for thee. 1 I’mh-rstaml. If you ure mine, the man lu that lower lives. To night on the vessel thut Is anchored here. I’ll beur you away to some far dlstunt Isle of Greece.” "My husband would follow us for ever!" "Not If he knew you were faithless! 'TIs not tlielr English way. A woman who Is dishonored Is no more to them Ilian a tainted orange." "Dishonored lu his eyes? Never!" cries the girl. "I'd sooner you killed him—sooner you killed me. much! I’m In your power: I'm alone here. help less 111 your hands. Kill me. L>t my darling go." Ah Danella Ims rlulrhed her. the old neck fastenings of the ancient gown have given wuy: she plucks Its laces further u|Mtrt over her dazzling Imisoiii and begs. "Hury your stiletto here, hut spare my hushund.'* Her |K»se only makes her the more alluring lo his devouring eyes. "Whst. kill Hie being I adore!” shudders Clprluno "I have no stiletto and I have taken care no knife Is near your desperate hands, my Indy. He sides. I'll never lei you go. If you will uot leave your liiishnml as tils wife, leave him ns his widow.” "Here. Enrico!” he calls. The young cavulier with the scat above his eyebrow ocmes onto the veranda and says: "My uncle. I honor thee, you have derided to give this woman death?" ITO HE CONTINUED.) BUILDING OF A WITICISM. Point of Joke the Bame Though Under Changed Conditions. The llohemian had an article ontl tied. "How u Joke Is Made." In It Marshall l». Wilder, the well known humorist, cites this story ns an Illus tration of one method. "Hero Is a story with a Joke In It about La!>ou chore, the gcnlul editor of Truth. When lie was standing for the borough of Northampton for the English parllumcnt a little girl camo up to her father nnd said: 'l'apa. who made Mr. Lahoiiclierc?’ ’Why, Provi dence. my dear.' answered the some what astonished parent. 'And what for. papa?’ Inquires the child. Now that Isn’t n had Joke. It was natural, anyway. Hut listen to one of mine, which realty has the same point, though ft is brought out in a different way. A child und her mother are on the curs. Opposite them sits a young man dressed In the height of fashion. Says the child: ‘Mamma, what is that?' nnd. as sin* asks the question, she points to the young man opposite. 'Hush, my dear.' answers the mother. Hut. mother. I want to know.' t 0 quiet the ch..d the mother whisper* ,n : her ear: ’He l« -.vhat we cull u dude, dear.’ The child persists as usual In gaining some more Information. 'And who made him. mamma?' ’Why. : Providence, dear, of course.’ replies , the mother sotto voice, whereat the child exclaims: 'Oh. mother, doesn't Providence like to have fun some times?' You see. the stories are real ly alike. At all events, the point is the same." A Matter of Taste. Cynic Philosopher—You should bo careful to address all men In honeyed ' speech. Student—Why so?

HYDROCYANIC-ACID GAS FOR FUMIGATING PLANTS An Insecticide Which Has Proved Itself of Great Value l*y Albert F. Woods, Asst. Chief Bureau of Plant Industry.

It Is necessary In every rase lo de termine with great care the cubic contents of the house, frame, or box In whirl! Ho- fumigation Is to be made. To Illustrate Fig. 2 shows cross sec tions of two styles of greenhouse structures now In general use. At the left Is un even span house 100 feet long. 12 feel wide. 2 feet on the sides, and •• feet 6 Inches from the surface of the Ikmls to the ridge, with a walk II Indies wide and Hi Inches deep.

Compute the number of cubic feet In each of the rectangles and tri angles In accordance with the follow ing method. In the even span house show-ii at the left tho number of cubic feet of space In tin- walk is found by multiplying the width hy the dep’.h h.v the length, thus: Multiply 1 foot 2 Inches hy I foot 3 Inches hy 100 feet; reducing to Inches we have li Inches Fig. 3.—Violet House Prepared for Fumigation. multiplied hy 15 Inches by 1.200 Inches equals 252.000 cubic inches; dividing this result hy 1,728. the number of cubic Inches contained In a cubic foot, we have J-45.83 cubic feel. The rectangle A D G F Is computed In the same way. except that In this cr.se It is not necessary to reduce the feet to Inches. It would he 12 feet multi plied hy 2 feet by 100 feet equals 2,400 cubic feet. This brings us to the triangles. The rule generally given for calculating the area of a ight-nnglu triangle Is to multiply the Paso hy the perpendicular und divide the product by 2. The result multi plied by tho length of the house will give tin l number of cubic feet the tri angular portion contains. For ex ample. taking the triangle A C E; G feet multiplied hy 2 feet G inches, equals 21 feet, divided hy 2 equals 10.5 feet, multiplied hy 100 feet equals 1,050 cubic feet. The ana of the trl- angle E (’ D and the cubic feet in this part of the house are determined In the HUOO wuy; or. 11l this cuse. slneu the trlungles nre equal, the desired re sult Is obtained hy multiplying tho number «»t cubic feet In the triangle A C E hy 2; 1.050 multiplied hy 2 i equals 2.100 cubic foot. The contents i of this house Is therefore 145.83 plus 2.400 plus 2.100. equals 4.G 15.83 cubic feet; this result multiplied hy the re i qulled dose |*«*r cubic foot of space 1 wili give the utnount of cyanide of k potassluiu necessary fur one fuiulga i tlon. > Fig. 2 shows at the right a cross section of u three-quarter s|»an house ; 100 feel long.
