A Band of Velvet Ribbon By JOHN Y. LARNED At a summer hotel In the Adirondack mountains, where there were the usual quantum of young girls and tbe usual deficit of young men for them to flirt with; Albert King, who needed recre ation after too much work, found him self, in demand. But King was not a ladies' man, and he demurred. Nevertheless, there wus one girl who attracted him. . She was not one of the rocking chair brigade, as tbe ladies who sat on the piazza were dubbed, for she was not admitted to their charmed dr ele. Why, King did not know. King made her acquaintance and was thereafter taboo by the patrician girls, who bud no use for a man who would divide his attentions to them with one of another caste. But he did not mind this, for Ellen Bickford. the young lady in question. Interested bint and relieved the monotony of bis stay in the mountains. Besides, he discov ered her superiority in one respect, courage, for when a large party were caught out on tbe lake in a terrific cquall and it looked as if their boat would be swamped Miss Bickford dis played no terror whatever, while other girls were desperately frightened. Miss Bickford never wore short aleeves to her dresses except at the hotel dances, when she displayed a well rounded neck and arms. But at such times her right arm was inva riably encircled with a broad strip of velvet. The fact that this part of her arm midway between the shoulder and the elbow was never exposed soon began to excite comment That there was something on her arm to be concealed was evident: curiosity stepped In and would know what it was. But there was a dignity about Miss Bickford that caused curious per sons to abstain from making Inquiries, bo the matter remained unexplained. King was ignorant of the gossip con cerning what kind of blemish was bidden under the velvet He had noticed the fact of Miss Blckford's wearing it but had not troubled himself as to the cause. If he thought of it at all be very likely set It down to the conceal ment of a scar, probably caused by vaccination. But one day the rumor reached his ears that Miss Bickford was the daughter of a common sailor who, when she was a cblld, bad tat tooed on her arm an anchor. Since King bad been smitten with tbe young lady this report naturally Interested him. Whatever he may have thought of Miss Blckford's origin, it seemed to bim unlike her to conceal any mark of It He would rather expect ber to permit the whole world to know her for exactly what she was. Miss Bickford, It seems, was as much attracted by Mr. King as be was by her. Moreover, she noticed that after a cer tain period he seemed disposed to draw awny from her. She knew that what she was concealing was causing a smothered commotion among the young ladles of the hotel and inferred that some one of the many stories that were floating about concerning it bad reach ed bim. One day she frankly said to him: - 'Mr. King, have you heard the story that I am the daughter of a common sailor who tattooed an anchor on my arniT "I have." "You are the only person in this house whose opinion I care for, but I do care for yours and do not wish, so far as you are concerned, to sail under false colors. My father is or was ft landsman and bad nothing to do with what Is under the circlet I wear. But I do wear it to conceal something that has been tattooed on my arm." "Thank you very much for the pref erence you have shown me and your frankness. For the first time my cu riosity as to that ribbon bas been ex cited, and since you have caused It I look to you to gratify it" "I assure you that It is nothing to be ashamed of." "Is it anything to be proud of 7" To this she assented haltingly. "In that case I Insist upon seeing it" After some persuasion she pulled the ribbon down towurd her elbow, and there in blue Ink under the skin were the letters "Heroine." King looked at the word, then up at the girl's face and, with a arolle, said: "Come; tell the story. I am dying to hear it." "It Is not much of a story. For years my family had a cottage on the sea coast My summers were spent there from tbe time I was six years old. I learned to swim like a duck and could handle a boat as well as a boy. Our cottage was on one aide of a neck of land, and a Ufa saving station was on tbe other side. One day on our side a ship came ashore. The life men did not know of her being there, and thera was not time In which to tell them. There were six men about to drown. I pulled out in my boat and saved them. I was but thirteen years old and didn't know enough to refuse to permit one of the life savers to tattoo arm." You have hurried through your sto ry." said King, "as though It was something to be ashamed of. I'm glad what you are Is indelibly written on yoor person, and If you were mine I would never consent to an attempt to eradicate It In time she became bis, and there was nothing be was more proud of than the proud title his wife continued to conceal.

The age of fcrmers in the I'nited States, and the relationship existing between the age and the color of the farm operators, the size of the farm operated, and the ehai acter of tenure, by sections, geographic divisions, and states, for 1910, are giv en in a bulletin issued bv Director Wil liam J. Harris of the bureau of the cen sus, aepartment of commerce. This is the first publication of such information by the census bureau. Data for 6,301,502 farm operators of all ages in the United .States are given in tbe report 5,440,H0 of whom were white farmers, and 920,883 -colored. Of the total of 6,301,302 farmers, 419,330 en 24 years of age and under in 1910; 1,413,87(1, 25 to 34 years of age; 1,571,- 409, 35 to 44 years; 1.432.707, 45 to 54 years; 947,524, 55 to 64 years; 554.670, 65 years and over; 22.023, of unknown j age. By percentages, the corresponding fig ures show that 6.59 per cent of all farm ers were 24 years of age and tinder j 22.22 per cent, 25 to 34 years of age; 24.70 per cent, 35 to 44 years; 22.52 per cent, 45 to 54 yeas; 14.89 per cent, 55 to 64 years; 8.72 per eent, 65 vears and over; and 0.35 per cent, of unknown age. Distribution of Farmers by Age, The distribution of farmers by age. for each section of the country, shows that in each of the three age groups, 24 years and under. 2. to 34 years, and 3. to 44 years, the South contained the larger proportion, but that after 44 years of age the percentage in the North were greater. In every age group the percentage of farmers in that portion of the country east of the Mississippi river was greater than that to the west of it. Owing to the number of colored farmers in the South, where they con stituted over one-fourth of the total, the percentage of white farmers was greater in the South than in the North in the youngest age group only. Among all farmers and white farmers the dif ference in the percentages of the young; est and oldest groups was a very wide one, but among colored farmers in the South the percentage falling in the "65 years and over" group was nearlv as great as that in the "24 years and under" group. The three age groups from 25 to 51 yea in were of the greatest relative nn porta nee of anv, containing practically seven-tenths of all the farmer in the country. Next to these in order ranked the "55 to 1(4 vears." "115 and over." and "21 years and under"' groups. The North and the West followed the same group ing us the country as a wliole, hut in the South the "24 vears and under gToup ranked ahove the "04 years and over group. The South differed from the North and West also in the onter of-the three principal age groups, the "25 to 34 years" pioup being the most im-iiortant in the South, while in the other section it was the next older group, "35 to 44 years." The number of colored farmers in the South was relatively greater than that of white farmers up to the ape of 44. but from that on th advantage in numbers was with the white farmers. Mexico City Aug. 20. A decree is to be issued by the federal district re pudiating government notes of the issue of July 25 last. This issue was made during the re gime of Provisional President Francisco (arbaial on the authorization ot tne irOO.OOO.OOO six per cent. 10 year gold bonds made by the Huerta administra tion. About $10,000,000 of this paper is now in circulation. The repudiation is based upon the de cree issued by Venustiano Carranza on April 20 not recognizing the notes of the Huerta government. The constitution of the new Consti tutionalist cabinet was announced last night as follows: Ministers of foreign affairs, Ysidro Faliela. Minister of inferior, Eliseo Arcedondo.

Metcalfe Apparently Beaten in Govern orship Fight. Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 20. With the polls closing at 9 p. m. and one of the largest primary votes in tne history of the state, the count was alow anil returns were light up to an early hour yester day morning. The governorship fight in the fall elec tion will probably be between R. B. Howell, former Republican national committeeman, who has defeated Ross Hammond and State Senator Kemp of Fullerton for the Republican nomination, and present (?ov. Morehead, who lias probably defeated George W. Rerge and Richard L. Metcalfe, canal rone governor and personal friend of Mr. Rryan, for the Democratic nomination. The Metcalfe slump is attributed by both his supporters and his opponents to his canal zone job. Hungry Nebraska Democrats have been waiting long for patronage, and it made many of them feel aggrieved that Metcalfe got the largest and first political plum at the hands of the Democratic administration. The purchase has just been completed by the Vermont state forester of a tract of about three thousand acres in the town of Underbill. This area, which is now the largest of our state forests, lies on tne west side ot tne treen .Moun tain range just south of Mount Mans field. The old road," which crossed the range through AebrasKa noten, runs diagonally across the forest, and the long trail from Mansfield to Camels Hump passes over it for a mile or more. Some twenty years ago the best spruce lumber was cut off, but at that time, lumber was. far less valuable than now, and much spruce was left as well as hardwoods. With the exemption of about one hundred acres of burned land, the whole area is well wooded. It is fortunate that tbe state could acquire it before the mountain was stripped, be cause the lumber supply will not only be of great future value to the town, but the two streams rising on the tract; Stevens brook and Lee river would be seriously effected by deforestation. The purchase was made through II. B. Shaw of Burlington and Ira Thorp of rnderhill. on behalf of the owners, who live in Boston; and by A. F. Hawes, state forester, and T. E. Hopkins, the state's attorney of Chittenden county on behalf of the state. It is understood that the price paid was only $3.2.1 an acre, considerably less than that first asked. The state forester is now having a map and careful estimates made, of the entire forest, and intends to begin the improve ment of the tract as soon as practicable. The open areas will be reforested next spring, and improvement cuttings made as soon as a good market can be de veloped for the weed trees. ' One of the points of interest in this forest is a very beautiful waterfall. one of tbe finest in the state, especially in early spring. . The "acquisition of this tract makes the total area of state forests about 8,- 000 acres. The French Counter-Offensive in Alsace Lorraine. As a consequence, primarily, of the gallant and unexpected resistance of the Belgians and because further the first claim upon the interest of the world has naturally beeri the development of the great German offensive thrust toward France, the earlier fighting on the Alsace-Lorraine frontier has claimed only passing attention. Yet the dispatches of the past two days demonstrate that in this quarter a great French counter offensive directed by the commanding French general is breaking out success fully and sweeping toward the Rhine from the Swiss frontier to Met a. Plain ly this counter-offensive must now be reckoned with as one of the salient de tails of the present campaign. The simplest fashion in which to de scribe the French counter-offensive is to point out the exact analogy between it and the great German operations through Belgium. The Germans, on a front of about a hundred miles, are sweeping down upon the left flank of the allied armies in a desperate effort to penetrate northern France. The French on a front a little wider, are advancing toward .southern Germany. Namur, in Belgium, is almost in the center of the German advance. Strassburg bears the same relation to the French. Antwerp in Belgium, Mctr. in German Lorraine, instantly of two fertile provinces, from which she could hope to draw supplies and soldiers. France can also expect to enlist thousands of Alsatians and to pro mote indiscipline and desertion aiming Alsatians now actually wearing German' uniforms. ; But in the wider field the French inva sion of Alsace must be recognized as the answer to Germany's thrust at France. Germany has attempted to strike France on the left Hank. France has retaliated by coming through the German left flank. German success means opening a road toward Paris and into northern France. France is opening a way into south Germany and similarly toward Berlin. If the German offensive fails, French armies will be nearer than the German forces in Belgium and northern France, both to the Rhine and to the German capital. It must be remembered, too, that France, with her allies, has the advan tage of numbers. Of 25 German army corps, not less than three are on tho, Russian frontier, and possibly one more. F'rance has 21 corps, and the re-enforce-nient of her allies must mean English and Belgian troops to the value of at least five corps. She ca,n thus, with the British and Belgian corps, place in Bel gium enough troops to oppose man for man to the Germans, and still establish a two to one advantage in numbers in Alsace-Lorraine, sucli as can only be counter-balanced by Austrian re-enforce ments, which cannot be heavy now Rus-, sia is mobilized ana Servia active. It is fair, then, to insist that tbe French counter-offensive is at least as serious a military move as the German are both on the flank of invading forces. advance in Belgium. It is, too, meeting WOULD SAVE ON PRINTING. Nearly Million Dollars' Economy Pro posed in Bill to Be Taken Up in House. Washington, Aug. 20. Comprehensive reform of the printing law covering an annual outlay of millions of dollars by the government is proposed in a bill taken up yesterday in the House. Chair man Bernhardt of the printing com mittee, which reported the bill, said it would revise distribution of documents to members of Congress, restrict the dis tribution of departmental documents and the leave-to-print privilege in con- netcion with tre Congressional Record, and would rearrange printing office sys tem and salaries.

Its left has already passed the line of the Metz-Strassburg railway and is approaching Saverne; further advance will presently bring it into lower Alsace, below Strassburg and on the Rhine. Meantime, its right is coming up from Bellort, by Muelhausen, driving the Ger man defense north to Strassburg and east across the Rhine near Basel. Its center is descending the valleys east of the several Vosges passes from the mountain of Donon to that of Barenkopf one level with Strassburg, the other north of the French fortified post of Bel fort. The effect of this advance, if it is suc cessfully pressed home, will be to drive the Germans out of upper Alsace, sur round Strassburg, and bring the French eastern frontier to the Rhine again. When forces have been detached to cov er Strassburg and Neu Breisach, the main French army will be free to ad vance down the Rhine toward Mayence, where the kaiser now is, or cross the Rhine and drive north to Frankfort or east to Baden and south Germany. j In other 'words, just as the Germans j ka.-. n.J..Ualnn , n ....... r. nn.()ldPn Frsnce, avoiding the great barrier forts from Epinal to Vedrun, so the French seem to he aiming at a counter-offensive which will take them into Germany and between the fortresses of Strassburg and Mavence. As an alternative, they are free to turn west, isolate Metz and at tack tht flank and rear of the German armies invading France by moving to the Moselle valley north of Mctz and Thionville. Certain advantages, evidently, the French offensive ha over the German First, it begins in French territory and crosses directly into German. The (Jcr- mans on the contrary have had to cross Belgium, to establish their communica tions in a hostile country and to fiht a Belgian army before they could reach French territory, and they have not yet reached it. The population of AUace Ixirraine, the field of the first phase of French operations, is friendly to France and can lie relied uixm to give all possible help to the invaders. The main line of communication of the (Jcrmans will be across hostile Belgium for nearly 100 mile, and will require a strong rear guard. France can reach the Rhine and the Alsace-Lorraine frontier of the Ha-i varian Palatinate anif Baden before che ncd consider her ommiiniati"n. The main justification of the taking of Al'-aee-I.orraine in 1 ST 1 ha always been asserted by (ierman to lie found in the fact that the presence of the French on the Rhine left Germany open to at tack. While StrassHwrg and Met will doubtless sustain long iege before they can he raptured, a French offensive w hich iwdated them and gave French posse sion of the rest of the Al-ace-lorraine territory wotild in fait permit France to invade Germany quite as '1I a in former time before she lot the Rhine land.

Possibly coincident with a successful arrival of the German advance from Belgium at the frontier of France, the French counter-offensive will be pushed out into Germany beyond Alsace-Lorraine and exercise a pressure which will compel the German general staff to weaken the great army now operating toward Paris via Brussels.
