Not only the present-day earth but the ancient world engages the atten tion of the society's explorers. Rev. James Haikie has been puttering around the ancient dump heaps of the island of Crete, and he has come to the conclusion that there existed In this Island a thousand years - before the Phoenicians swept the seas with their galleys (and to the Phoenicians is attributed the discovery of writ ten language) a civilization which out ranked in some particulars anything which has followed except the civil ization of our own day. Dr. Baikie has found the ancient temple of the fabled Minotaur, and from the fres coes of this archaic ruin he has made some remarkable discoveries. One of tbese is that the Cretan women wore gowns which closely resembled the 20th century creations turned out from the most fashionable establishments of Paris and New York. He tells about it in the current issue of the Society's Magazine. "In their very low-necked dresses, with puffed sleeves, excessively slen der waists, and flounced skirts, and their hair elaborately dressed and curled, they might have stepped out of a modern fashionplate," he wrote. The dresses, he says, were "so wasp waisted as to suggest universal tight- lacing. From the broad belt hung down bell-shaped skirts. In some cases the skirt, below a small panier, is composed of different colored ma terials resembling tarlatan." Verily, as "Solomon said, there is no new thing under the sun. tOOP 15 DUE FOREST NOTES The Daily Story LOUISE DE CHAPPORAL BY JOHN L. TREVOR. Copyrighted. iSlt. by Associated Literary Bureau.

"But who ordered ber to be brought here?" "Citizen Robespierre." "Is he willing to stand for the exe cntion of a child?" "No, M. le'Juge. As soon as she has been dispatched it will be an nounced that a mistake has been made." For a moment De Bouvier meditated whether to step down from his chair and surrender himself to be dealt with as an enemy to the revolution. But an Idea struck him not that there was much expeetition of carrying it out.; without his own condemnation, but there wns a faint hope. At any rate, there was hope for the child. "How old are you, little girl?" he asked, with a pity in bis" voice be could not control. "Sever.." replied the child, with a smile. "Have yon a pnpa and a mamma?" "Yes. but they have taken them aw.ty." The Judge bit his Hp to retain his equanimity. He knew that they had taken her parents to the guillotine. "That will do." be said to the died in charge of her. . And she was led away among those who were to be ex ecuted. These prisoners were to go to tbe guillotine the uext day. Tbnt evening De Bouvier went to a clothing shop and bought a pair of loose trousers, a blouse and a red silk handkercbiet Then he bought n suit of boy's clothes. Taking these with bim. be went to a bnker's and purchased a dozen loaves of brent! and one of those wooden es tels in vleh bread is carried by bak ers in Tarls.

But turning Into a street thut led to the Flace de hr Kei olution be went toward tbe guillotine. A rum- brel pussed him. loaded with persons going to execution, and among them be mtw the condemned child. She. too, sow blm, smiled und waved ber baud. He hurried .so. When he reached the guillotine, the victims were being un loaded. Stepping up to the executioner, be took from bis pocket the parchment appointing blm a Judge and .bowed It to blm. "I condemned these prisoners yester day," be said, "and I made a mistake.' This child Is not to be executed." Tbe executlouer looked at the paper Then, putting the receptacle filled -.k' the bread ou his bead and taUinj child by the band, he went dowmtjiftj and out on to the street. Meanwhile, a new batch of prtnoneti were brought to tbe courtroom' to b condemned by Judge de Bouricr, Tin Judge did not appear, but thoe It charge of the prisoners, thinking that he bad been belated, waited fur bin When an hour had passed without hit coming, a messenger was ent to ha lodging. lie was not there.

"But I am ordered to stop Judged! Bouvier," replied the sentinel, "and i little girl." 1 De Bouvier laughed. "Do I look lib a Judge? And you are told to stop I girl, not a boy." The sentry called a sergeant, -be looked at the two wayfarers and con sulted tbe order. For a moment th man and the child were between lift and death. Fate threw the die,'nd life won.
