and the face of the Indian squaw.
And the Eskimo dog was barking at

Only one thing marred the happi
nwa of our reunion, and that was the
lota of Jacqueline's father.
We had talked much over what had
Happened, and ten days later, when
Jacqueline had recovered from the
SftxXk and rora what proved to be,
after all, only a flesh-wound, we had
YUited the scene of our- rescue by the

was useless to search for Charles Du

gion' had been changed; there was
neither glacier nor cataract, and the
lake, swollen to twice Its size and

entrance, the man turned and sprang
toward us with outstretched hands
that gripped ours and wrung them till
we cried out in pain.
It was Alfred Dubois.
But I was stupefied to see the sec
ond man who rose and advanced to
ward me with a shrewd smile. For it
was Tom Carson!
Presently I was telling my story
except, for that part which more In
timately concerned myself and Jacque
line, and the narrative of the murder,
which I gave only as Lacroix had con
fessed it to me.
A look of incredulity deepened on
Tom's shrewd old face till, at the end,
he burst out explosively at me :
"Hewlett, I didn't think I was a d
fool before I beg your pardon, miss.
If any man had told me that I would
have knocked him down. But I am, I
am, and I want you to be my mana
ger." "Do you mean that I have lied to
you?" I asked indlgantly.
"Every word, Hewlett every word,
my son. That Is why I want you back
with me. First you leave my employ
ment without offering any reason;
then you take hold of my business af
fairs and try to pull off a deal over my
head, and then you tell me a yarn
about a castle falling into a lake."
"But, M. Carson," Interposed the
priest, "I myself have seen this cha
teau many times. And I have gone to
the entrance and looked from the
mountain, too, and it is no longer
there."
"Never was," said Carson. "You

man, d'Epernay, who Js said to be dead
now, wanted to sell me the biggest
gold mine in the world for fifty thou
sand dollars, and from what I know of
Leroux I am ready to believe that he
would try to hog it if it really exists."
"But how about Leroux?" I cried,
more amused now than vexed.
"That," answered Tom, "is pre
cisely why I want to get hold of you
again, Mr. Hewlett."
"But here is Mile. Duehaine!"
shouted the old priest In despair.
Tom Carson raised his fat old body
about five inches and made Jacqueline
what he took to be a bow.
"Pleased to make your acquaint
ance, miss," he replied. "Ah, well, it
doesn't matter. I guess that man,
d'!3pernay, was lying to me. However,
I am ready to look at your gold mine if
you want me to."
"You'll have to" do some blasting
then," I said, nettled. "It's just about
two hundred feet below the ground."
"Never mind," said Tom. "Lumber
is better than gold. Next time I'm
here I shall be glad to have another
look round. And now, Hewlett, if you
want a Job at five thousand a year to
start to start, mind you, you play fair
and tell me where Leroux Is hiding
himself."
"ANTIQUES" FROM NEW YORK
.
Example of How the Tourist Is Vic

chases in Foreign Cities.
Some years before the war a resi
dent of New York voyaged to "Venice.
Among his fellow passengers at sea
was a traveling salesman, whom he
got to know quite well. What the
New York man liked about the sales
man was that he did not "talk shop."
He had not even told his steamship
acquaintance what manner of goods
he handled.
The day after they arrived In Venice
the salesman went out on business, his
steamship companion sightseeing.
Among other places the lattej visited
was a fascinating antiquarian snop.
Prices were steep, but what of that?
He wanted something to take back
to show "the folks at home" that he
had really been in Venice. Finally he
settled on a bit of Venetian glass, a
square of gold-embroidered Venetian
cut velvet in a tarnished gilt frame,
and a silver-handled dagger engraved
with the arms of one of the doges. In
the evening at the hotel he displayed
them, not without a feeling of pride.

"My friend," said the latter, "you've
been very decent to me, and now Pll

vcr
I was too mortified to answer him,
But I felt Jacqueline slip her hand into
mine, and suddenly the memory of the
past made Tom's raillery an insignifi
cant affair. .
"Mind you," he pursued, "he'll turn
up soon. He's got to "turn up, because
the lumber company's all organized
now and In fine running order. What
do you say, Hewlett?"
"Nothing," I answered.
"All right," he said, turning away
with a shrug of his shoulders. "Dn
practical as ever, ain't you? Think it
over, my son. Glad to have met you,
Mr. Priest, and as I'm always busy 1
guess Dubois and I will start for home
this afternoon."
"Messieurs," said the priest, "do you
know what day this is?"
Tom started. "Why, good Lord, It
It's Christmas day. Isn't It?" he
asked, a little sheepishly.
"It's a bigger day for us," I said to
Tom.
He squinted at me in his shrewd
manner; and then he got up from the
table and wrung my hand.
"Good luck to you both," he said.
"Say, Mr. Dubois, J guess we can
pitch our tent here tonight don't
you?"
Alfred Dubois was grappling with
our hands again; but his onset was
less ferocious, because he had to loose
us every now and then to slap me on
the back and blow, his nose.
"If only la petite Madeleine could
be here!" he shouted. And I am sure
that was his dinner voice I heard.
THE END.
"Old King Cole."
The first reference to "Old King
Cole," the "merry old soul" of the fa
mous nursery rhyme, was made in a
book written by Dr. William King, who
was born in 1633. It is probable that
the song was composed in the seven
teenth century, although some Investi
gators think It much older. Halliwell
Identifies the merry monarch with
Cole or Coel, a semi-mythical king of
Britain who is supposed to have
reigned In the third century. The Scots
also have an "Old King Coul," said
to have lived in the fifth century,
Freeman and Other historians say a
King Cole ruled Britain in the sixth
century. There are many who assert
that the reference to the pipe Indicates
that Old King Cole lived at n period
after Raleigh had introduced tobacco
Into Europe, but this does not neces
sarily follow, as a pipe might mean a
musical instrument.
Silly Idea Rebuked.
The late Count de Lesseps never
seemed to lose sight of the educa
tion of his children, even In the
smallest detail. One morning at
breakfast a beautiful Dresden tea
cup was broken.
"Ah!" cried the countess, "a disas
ter! Two more of that set will now
be broken. It always happens so."
"Are you so superstitious," asked
the count, "as really to believe that
two more will be broken?"
"I know It."
"Then let us get It off our minds."
And taking two of the cups by the
handles he dashed them together.
The anger and dismay of the count
ess proved conclusively that she had
not seriously believed the superstition.
It also loosed any hold the absurd idea
may have had on the minds of the
children.
Chinese Fond of Fireworks.
China invented gunpowder and pop
ularized firecrackers. The cheapest
kind of firecracker is made of gunpow
der rolled up in coarse bamboo paper
with a covering of red paper, red be
ing regarded by the Chinese as bring
ing good luck. Alum is used to neu
tralize the smoke. The Canton dis
trict Is the center of this industry. The
Chinese seem to use firecrackers upon
every occasion to speed a parting
guest, In wedding celebrations, on fes
tivals and birthdays and to dispel evil
and bring good omens. China exports
about $3,000,000 worth a year.

Unquenchable.
"Old Lute Lathers is a great feller
to always look on the bright side of
things," said the gaunt Missourlan.
"He was riding to town on a load of
hay with his son-in-law the other day
when the roads were so muddy. One
wheel dropped into a chuckhole clear
up to the axle, the hay slewed, and
Uncle Lute rolled off and landed on
his head in a puddle a foot and a half
deep. 'Well, sir,' says he, when they
had dug him out and mopped him off
some, 'these 'ere mud roads don't

We commend a horse for his
strength, and sureness of foot, and
not for his rich caparisons; a grey

his tine collar; a hawk for her wing,

like manner, do we not value a man
for what Is properly bis own? Montaigne.

MOTHER EUCALYPTUS' STORY.
"I must tell you the story Mother
Eucalyptus told to her friends," said
Daddy.
"We'd be delighted to hear the
story." said Nancy, "but we have no
idea what sort of a mother she was ; I
can't even pronounce her name."
"It is a bit hard," said Nick. "I
guess L won't try. But tell us the
story, Daddy, and tell us whether she
was a mother person or a mother ani
anal or a mother bird or a mother
ash,"
"She wasn't any of those," said
Daddy.
"What was she?" asked Nancy., '
can't imagine."
"I give it up," said Nick.
"Well, as neither of you think you
ran guess," said Daddy, "I will tell
pou that she was a tree.
"Yes, Mother Eucalyptus Tree told
this story to some other trees when
they were all talking about their fam
ily histories and what they were fa
mous for and what they had done. So
I shall tell you her story."
"Do," said Nancy, "for now I know
Just what she was I want to hear."
"Please go on, Daddy," begged Nick,
'Friends, said Mother Eucalyptus,
T must tell you that we are very use
ful, we have been very useful and we
will still be very useful.'
"All the trees nodded their heads
politely and bowed their branches
and said, 'Pray continue.'
" 'We can give forth lots of oil. In
stead of giving a sirup like our friends
the maple trees give (at least we have
heard that they gave maple sirup, and
as for being our friends, we consider
all trees our friends), we give oil.
"'That makes us useful. We do
good that way. For this oil that we
give cures sicknesses sometimes and
drives away bad germs. Our leaves
are perfectly fine as regular little doc
tors and hospitals. If It weren't that
we needed them they would probably
go into hospitals, wear caps and
aprons and have patients as nurses
have.
" 'And some of our leaves might
dress themselves up as doctors and
carry little bags with pills and could
say to different people :
" 'Please show u your tongue. And
please tell us If your appetite Is good.
" They can't dress up and go as

" 'Our dear little baby blue gum
seedlings also do a great deal of
work.'
" 'How Interesting your story is,'
said the other trees. 'Do go on.'
'"Thank you,' said Mother Eucalyp
tus Tree, for liking my story. It is
a comfort to feel that one Isn't idling
one's life away. I would hateto feel
that I was an idle tree and did noth
ing at all. I am sure I would be
most unhappy.'
" 'You can't be unhappy because you
aren't idle and because you do good,'
said the other trees. 'That must be
the secret of your happiness. You're
so busy.'
" T do believe you're right, trees,
said Mother Eucalyptus Tree.
'"Well,' she continued after a
pause, 'the baby blue-gum seedlings
take up water ery quickly and can
drink or sap it up without any trouble.
" 'So we used to be planted where
there were marshes and we would
drink up the marshy, unhealthy water
because It wouldn't hurt us, and we
knew it would hurt others. Oh, how
many mosquitoes we've driven away,
because we made the land no longer
marshy and so they didn't like it.
" 'We used to be planted so we
would do this work as a regular busi
ness and we did a lot of good. But
whenever we get the chance we do
what we can, for we know we are
given these helpful leaves and seed

world. And we . do it whenever we
can, and enjoy doing it too.'

SKIRTS TO ANKLE
American Ideas Have Won Over
Those of Paris.
English Leaders of Fashion Refuse to
Wear the Excessively Short De
sign Sent From France New
est Sleeves and Shoes.
Ifs the most amusing thing In the
world to watch what Is happening in
the fashion world in London. A
few weeks ago word came that In New
York women were wearing long tubu
lar skirts, way down to their ankles
and as tight as a pipe. At the very
same minute In Paris the skirts only
ventured a miserable half dozen
Inches below the knees. What was
to be done? London hesitated a week
or so. Paqnin and Lanvln brought
over staggering creations that looked
bb If they were Intended for chil
dren's fancy dress parties and so
skimp and short that no well-developed
British female could possibly get
Inside. So Just naturally the Eng
lish turned to our New York mode
and now it's the rarest possible thing
to see a dress in Bond street or In
the park that Is cnt above ankle
length.
French dressmakers are astonished,
Indeed they will not acknowledge that
American fashion is actually compet
ing with French. They shrug their
shoulders and adjust their dresses to
suit their patrons over there and pre
tend that they Invented the Idea them
selves. But the French have their way in
sleeves, for one thing it's no way at
all, for there aren't any. On the
street, in the house in the evening,
you certainly can't tell by the sleeves
what sort of a dress you are looking
st. The only garment that has
sleeves is a negligee or a tea frock,
and these have long wings that trail
along the floor. It's a great pity, too,
the lack of sleeves, because It's not
one woman in a hundred that can
boast a dimpled elbow, and the sights
of red and unlovely arms that are ex
posed every day are getting on peo
ple's nerves.
Everybody wears brocaded shoes.
Colors match the dress or suit and
stockings are usually a very pale
shade of the same color, or flesh, and
so thin that they look like nothing at
all. There Is hardly any upper to the
latest shoes, really they are sandals
with a tiny strap and a beaded or
Jeweled buckle to clasp. -
CONVENIENT HAT-STAND
Hats are always difficult to dispose
of, especially when a closet is very
shallow without much shelf space. Sp,
to solve the problem, a little wooden
stand can be constructed to hold four
hat -boxes. This stand is built like a
table with two shelves underneath
any kind of wood will do that can be
painted or enameled. Each shelf holds
two hat boxes, and these are made
more attractive and durable by cover
ing them with either a light-weight
flowered chintz or cretonne, or heavy
flowered wail paper. To be very prac
tical the fronts of the boxes should be
hinged by means of strips of linen so
that the front can drop, and the hats
be removed without taking the boxes
from the shelves. - -
CHOICE IN FALL MILLINERY
Duvetyn Pretty Sure to Be Popular,
Though Many Other Materials
May Be Selected.
Duvetyn is one of the biggest fac
tors In the advance fall models that
are now being shown In local mil
linery circles. Manufacturers are
unanimous In the belief that it Is go
ing to exceed the popularity it enjoyed
last year. Beaver strip is also well
thought of In some parts of the trade,
as there Is no material for hats that
is more flattering to a woman than
beaver. Embroidered effects are being
shown for the new season In a large
way. Heavy wool, silk floss, chenille
and gold thread embroideries are used
extensively. Hackle is a big factor,
especially the domestic pasted variety
of this plumage. Pasted feather breasts
are being used in combination with
heavy fabrics to good advantage.
Flower trims are seen in heavily
padded wool and chenille effects.
Chenille grapes also are used as trim
mings. Used by the French.
The French designers are sponsors
for all sorts of embroidery on midsum
mer and autumn blouses. Floss,
chenille worsted, beads and ribbonzine
ambroidery all are being used by them.

TO PROTECT THE SLEEVES
Most Serviceable Coverings May Bo
Made From Men's Handkerchiefs
of Cheap Materials.
Nearly all business girls wear over
sleeves while at work; but if the
sleeves are made of the usual black
or dark material, they give a severe
look to any dress.
It is a good plan to make .the
sleeves from men's handkerchief s ; the
cheap ones, sold for ten cents, answer
the purpose. Perhapa the most serv
iceable kind Is that with a white cen
ter and a colored border. A center
of solid tint Is pretty, and may show
the dirt less; but the tint Is likely to
soon fade, and the goods on which it
is used Is likely to be more expensive
than the white handkerchiefs.
Fold the , handkerchief s diagonally
twice, to form a right-angled triangle,
tour folds in thickness, with the edges
of the handkerchief as the hypotenuse.-
Then cnt off one of the corners or
acute angle, somewhat on a slant The
wrist of the sleeve should be about
five Inches before it is bound. -All
seams must be French ones 'so that
there shall be no roughness.
Gather the wrist slightly, and bind
It with a bias strip from one of the
pieces that were cut off. It should be
from three and three-fourths to four
and one-quarter inches across when
finished, or Just large enough to slip
the hand through easily. A narrow
edging of lace may be added; it gives
the sleeves a more finished appear
ance. Folding twice, of course, gives
a pair of sleeves from one handker
chief. When the sleeves are in nse, the
seam comes on the Inside of the arm,
and the point is pinned on the outside.
Just above the elbow. That will hold
the sleeve comfortably in place, and
the strain being on the bias xf the
cloth, it gives with every motion of
the arm, and fits more closely than
a sleeve made on the straight would.
Such a sleeve can also be worn by
any housekeeper when she is at her
work. They can be made and laun
dered so easily that they commend
themselves to the practical girL
COMBINE COLLAR AND GIRDLE
Attractive Feature of a Frock That
Meets With Favor Among
Many Women.
Navy blue and white organdie com
bined with bright-toned blue and red
embroidery fashions an unusual little
frock. Its very attractive feature is a
high surplice collar, which is pro
longed into a girdle and fluffy sash
bow of navy blue organdie. This
comes also in combinations of brown
or rose with white organdie.
Finer than calico but invested with
all the quaintness and charm of that
material are the new English prints

sents. Almost any of our grandmoth
ers might have worn Just such a dress
with its square neck and elbow
sleeves, but the modern young woman
who wears this frock does not look in
the least like anybody's grandmother.
Bands of plain white braid emphasize
the simplicity of the design and the
material, and a band and bow of con
trasting ribbon velvet is tied over the
print sash. The flower design comes
both in rose and in blue.
Garter Fancies.
Some garters of the present day are
quite elaborate. They are made of all
sorts of silks, ribbons, laces and em
broideries and are ornamented, with

BALANCING THE MEAL.
We hear mnch about well-balanced
meals thene days and It Is the desire
of every home-
keeper to have
her meals well
balanced, appetiz
Ing as well as at
tractive. When
we speak, of bal
ancing a meal we
mean giving;, all
the food principals in their proper pro
poition In each menu, or getting the
amounts in during the dy; if lacking
in one meal, make it up in the next,
so that the day's meals will give the
proper balance.
The amount of food to be taken by
individuals differs so, greatly that
there is no fixed rule that one may fol
low. Age, climate, physical condition
as well as occupation are Important
factors in determining the amount to
serve, but it is safe to say that in the
average dietary we may cut out one
third of the food we daily consume,
masticate the two-thirds twice as long
as Is the habit and great benefit will
be noted in one's health. This ad
vice is only given to the well padded
individual ; those who are thin are so
because even if good eaters, the food .
Is not assimilated.
When serving a heavy main dish
vith the accompanying vegetable or
two, the dessert should be light, one
easy of digestion and with little bulk.
If the main part of the meal is light,
not preceded by a cream soup, let the
dessert be a richer one.
The generous use of milk in desserts
will give a better balance to the din
ner In which only a small amount or
meat is served, while at meatless
meals more milk may be used as well
as fish, cheese, beans and peas In or
der that there may be no lack of pro
tein (the tissue building body) In the
diet.
