Ho waa pre paring to do to when the lady ..wrote, him that she would be at M. short ly and would be happy to receive him there. Since M. was some 900 miles nearer than her residence, Woolcott concluded to see her there instead. Miss Martindale wrote that she would be at the Cliffs, meaning that she would visit a family of that name. Woolcott took this to mean that she would stop at a hotel. On alighting at the station he asked a man who was In a hurry where be could find the Cliffs. The man pointed to a hand some bouse on a hill near by. lie found the baggage agent and, pointing r thk hrmna tnld him in apnri hla trunk there; then be set off to walk the distance. On arriving he opened the front door, entered a spacious hallway and aaw a gentleman reading a news paper before an open fireplace. "The Cliffs. I believe?" said Woolcott The gentleman looked up at him over a pair of glasses, somewhat Bur prised, and replied In the affirmative. "Are you the landlord" asked, Wool cott A twinkle came Into the gentleman's eye, and be replied that he was the proprietor. "I would like a room in your bouse for a few days," continued the travel er. "Have you a young lady Btaylng with you of the name of Martindale?" A light seemed to break In upon the gentleman's brain. ' "Miss Florence Martindale? Certainly. She arrived a few days ago. But she's out In an auto Just now. She will not return till late tonight Be seated and I'll call a servant to show you to a room." Howard Cliff, banker, entertaining a few friends at his country residence, had sent them off in bis car, remaining at home himself. He went himself for the butler. Instead of ringing for him, to tell him to show a gentleman to his room who supposed he was In a ho tel and who was not to be told be was In a private'hbuse. Then Mr. Cliff re turned to the guest followed by the butler, who took him upstairs. While Woolcott was making a toilet his bag gage arrived and was sent up to him. When be came downstairs he found Mr. Cliff In the library. "We nave very rew guests nr. pres ent," said the supposed landlord. "Ton see, ours la a summer bouse, and we Sore Throat and Chest Colds Are Conquered Over Night Just Rub on Begy's Mustarine and Away Goes Backache, Headache, Pleurisy . . and Neuralgia.

"I don't like that" said Woolcott "If you are alone may we not dine together?" "Certainly." "What wine have your Mr, Cliff mentioned several kinds of wine, and bis guest selected cham pagne. He asked for a wine card, but the host told him It was unnecessary Woolcott regaled his host with one bot tle and called for another. The dinner was delightfully served, and altogether Woolcott found the landlord a very agreeable companion. Judging by the number of foreign places he was fa miliar with. Woolcott' thought that he must have kept hotels all over the world. Mr. Cliff suggested that,' Ince the auto party would not return till late, perhaps Woolcott would not alt up for them. Since the latter did not relish a meeting with the lady to whom be had come to propose before other he said be thought he would go to bed. When he went down to breakfast In the morning he met a genial party, (very one of whom bad been coached with , regard to bis reception. Miss Martindale had been horrified at the blunder he bad made. She had ex pected him to stop at a hotel and call upon her at her friend's. But Mr. Cliff pleaded with ber to permit her friend to remain in Ignorance of the situation temporarily and continue to be enter tained by the CUff family. Miss Martindale advanced with a smile, not unmlngled with embarrass ment but refrained from mentioning the mistake. All sat down together to breakfast, and Woolcott thought what a charming place It would be for b!m te make his proposal He bad ample opportunity, for the members of the family kept out of the couple's way, having some suspicion of the young man's errand. During the afternoon the two took a long walk, and when they came back Woolcott looked very proud of himself. At din ner be remarked to Mrs. Cliff that be bad never before stopped at so charm ing a hotel "Hotel r exclaimed the lady, feign ing surprise. "Mr. Woolcott" said the host "I have to thank you for making a mistake In taking my bouse for a hotel. Had you not done so I should not have had the pleasure of entertaining you." Woolcott saw by the looks of those present, especially bis fiancee, that he had blundered, but both host and host ess came to the rescue, and It was not long before he was feeling quite at home and laughing with the rest over his mistake.

To secure a merit badge in forestry, boy scouts are required, among other things, to identify 25 kinds of trees. One of the principal by-products of the national forests of Japan is furnish ed by mushrooms, which has yielded in one year a revenue of a million dollars. Articles of clothing from wood fiber are being made in Europe. The ma terial for a suit costs about fifty cents. Clothing made of this material, however, can not be washed. . One of the largest and most valuable timber trees of the country is the tulip tree, known to lumbermen as yellow poplar. It is related to the magnolias, but is the only tree of its kind in the world. The largest tree in the United States is said to be the "Mother of the Forest," a giant reawooa m ine v-aiaTeras Dig tree grove in California. It is supposed to contain 140,619 board feet on lum ber. There are, however, many claim ants for the honor of being the "largest tree" and the "oldest tree," and these claims, according to foresters, can not always be vanned. C. W. AVERILL CO. PUBLIC TO OWN U.S.TO CONTROL Regional Banks, Under the Amended Currency Bill GENERAL OUTLOOK FOR THE MEASURE Chairman Owen Says Com mittee Has Changed En . tire Theory of the Bill Washington, Nov. 7. -Amendments characterized by Chairman Owen as "al tering the entire theory of the bill" were written into the administration's curtn cy measure yesterday by a coalition of Republican and Democratic members of the Senate banking and currency com mittee. The stock of the regional banks of the new currency system will be owned by the public, and the regional banks will be controlled by the government The Senate banking committee incorporated that feature in the administration cur rency bill by a vote of seven to five. Senators Reed snd Hitchcock voted with the Republicans for this proposi tion. Strong objection has been raised in many quarters because the adminis tration bill, as it passed the House, pro vided for bank control and bank owner ship of the regional banks. Under the resolution as passed, the directorate oi each regional bank will consist of five named by the government and four named by the banks. Under the bill that passed the House the banks would have selected six and the government three. The resolution provides that subscrip tions to the capital of the regional sys tem shall be open to the public for 60 days. The banks will underwrite the capital and take what the public does not take. In the form in which the resolution finally passed, it was prepared by Sena tor Weeks, but was a composite of ideas of Senators Reed, Ilitchoek, and Weeks. The fact that Senator Weeks was at the White House Wednesday evening leads to the impression that the plau will satisfy the president. The fact that Senator Kern, Demo cratic leader, has sent out a call to all Democratic senators to return to Wash ington to be prepared for a Democratic caucus next week, was learned yester day. At the same time it is asserted that whether there is a caucus will de pend altogether on whet the committee does. Senator Simmons, who saw the president yesterday, does not believe one will be called "if the bill reported is a Democratic bill." ' Chairman Owen said, "We started out to write a bill which would provide n bank of banks, with power of rediscount and of issue, and which would mobilize . 9 Vi' f Mb- ' 1 I I I I I I I' VS 1 !37iL75" , I h 1 1 k 1 1 1 1 1 1 M D a lnf-xa to chroma S I-1 t I A g I T I wtarrh.

Settle Currency Question Schiff. New York, Nov. Tr-Jacob H. Schiff, of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., yesterday told mem bers of the Chamber of Commerce that the financial machinery ofthis country should be adjusted without delay. Mr. Schiff said the country is facing serious financial difficulties which will grow more and more serious if the cflrrency question is not settled. ' Mr. Schiff's speech was an impromptu one, made after A. Barton Hepburn, president of the Chase National bank, had proposed that a special committee of the chamber be appointed to go to. Washington to bring its influence to bear on the currency legislation suggested by President Wilson. - . Runnells Jumped as Plank ing Began to Give and Was Struck by Falling Timber South Royalton, Nov. 7. Fred W. Runnells, head of the furniture-moving firm of F. W.
