There was gossip about town that young I*octor Plummer had learned a bit too much about stimulants, but the townspeople liked their young ones high spirited. • • • At six-thirty Louise was Immacu lately and fragllely attired In wood brown linen, a perfect complement to her tawny eyes and hair. She didn't expect Phil on time— he never had been—doctors never were. Calmly she began a story. It was seven thirty when ahe went to the porch and looked up and down the street. Eight o’clock.

Phil asked. I-wise wanted to go to the club, but— “ You aay. PhlL I don't care." "Then we stay, and I won't have to share you." That settled that. As they danced her thoughts bn.rr*d Into the theme of the music —“so gorgeous, so divine, and you were mine—" “Warmish." suggested Phil as they walked to their table. "Have a drink?" They drank gin tickers. •*Mm. ... I feel cool as an Icicle." she smiled. “That won't do. That will not do." he emphasized with the dom ineering look she loved on his face. "We’re leaving right now." • • • The car nosed slowly off the road and stopped Just short of a fence. Their kisses were breathless, por tentous like the night.

It's our love, our happiness, and silly conventions don't mean a thing against those. I*on't yoo love me?" •T*b!l!" It was a gasp. iMwperstely she pushed him away. Her eyes held stark unbelief and a bit of horror. Silent, staring stalght before him. he drove her home. Stunned, she could say. nothing, feel nothing until she was alone In her room. The moon looked In her window, fiery, malignant. Suddenly a deluge of shame, shame for Phil, engulfed her. Disappointment In him sickened her.

Here was a new Phil, not depend ing on charm to carry him through, but straightforward, with humility. Phil's eye* were searching hers. “Louise, 1 don't deserve It—you are good, and you are lovely." He spoke gravely, hla voice deepened with feeling. He kissed her forehead lightly, and was gone. She was not muddled now. He didn’t say sweet —be said loTely.

Love la like that Gods of Old Palmyra Varied in Their Type Gods adored In the beautiful and proud old city of Palmyra were mixed-breed divinities, as is evi denced by friete reliefs unearthed at the ruins. The reliefs show gods that had become half-Greek, but were still partly Arabic, pre- Islamic, and other types, says Science Service. Itulna of this Syrian city, which stood at so strategic a post in the desert that It held the world's com merce In Its finger, are being exca vated by French archeologists. Reporting discoveries before the Berlin Archeological society. 11. Seyrlg, director of the Service of Antiquities of Syria, told of excava tions at Palmyra's mighty Temple of Bel. Since the temple has been cleared of the Arab village and mosque built inside It, new glimpses of the architecture and religious as pects of the temple are possible, he reported. The excavations show that the building was originally planned and built as a normal Greek temple, with a double peristyle of Corinthian col umns. But contrary to usual pre cedents, the builders did not set the entrance on the narrow side of the rectangle. They placed it on the long side, and not even In the mid dle. It Is believed that the Greek plan was changed to accord with Assyrian and other ancient Orien tal models. And this Is considered significant, showing that Oriental Influences met Greek or Roman In fluences In the city, and met them successfully. "Eat” and “Et” In the United States, the past tense of the verb to eat la rarely heard other than ate, pronounced to rhyme with late, gate, mate, says Literary Digest. In England the past tense appears Indiscriminate ly as ate or eat, and In either spell ing It is generally pronounced to rhyme with let, get, met. Occa sionally. the form ate Is pronounced In England as In the United States, and occasionally the form eat ap pears In the United States with the pronunciation et.

TIIE COOLIPGE EXAMiXFR POULTRY ♦MTS PREPARING POULTRY FOR EARLY MARKET Sell Light-Weight Broilers Soon as Possible. In order for the poultrymnn to realize highest prices for hls broil ers he must have them ready for market at earliest opportunity, writes a poultry man In the Missou ri Farmer. Whether or not he sells them at the weight of two pounds or larger depends upon market con ditions. In general with Leghorns he should dispose of the broilers at the age of twelve weeks or when they weigh from 2 to 2.5 pound* With the general purpose breeds as long as the market prices remain : steady he can well afford to keep ! them until they are larger as they will continue to make economical gains and to Improve In quality. To secure satisfactory growth the broilers should be fed the chick starter mash throughout the entire growing season. After the chicks are about ten seeks old some grain may also be fed. It will probably be advisable to keep them In fairly close confinement rather than to al low them free range. Access to rel atively small yards. If the yards provide green feed. Is desirable. Brooder house* provided with aun porches make satisfactory quarters for feeding birds Intended for the market Exposure of the chick* to sunshine, feeding green feed, and the use of yellow corn will tend to ; produce broilers with bright yel low leg* such as the market desires. There will be a smaller proportion of poorly feathered bare-backed chicks If the chicks an* provided roomy quarters and If the brooder house la kept as cool as possible j consistent with good brooding prac tice*. Starting Turkey Poulta Requires Greatest Care Starting turkey poult* Is more difficult than starting hahy chick*, since It Is often difficult to get the turkeys to eat. Many growers get them started by placing a few old er poulta with the youngsters for j a few days. Others moisten the mash with milk for a few days and then sprinkle finely chopped alfal fa over It Many turkeys starve to death because the feeder doe* not ■pend enough time with them get ting them to eat. 11. D. Munroe. for mer Pennsylvania pnultryman. says. Another common complaint tn starting turkey poults under arti ficial brooders Is the fact that they are likely to crowd and smother the weaker birds. For this reason. It Is best to keep smaller numbers! together, not over 100 In a house 10 by 12 feet In size. During the first week the tem|*erature at the edge of the hover, 2 inches from the floor, should be kept at 00 degree* to 05 degree* F. Thereafter the tem|<erature should tie decreased 5 degrees a week until 70 degrees F. Is reached. Perches should tie placed In the house early so the birds will learn to roost. Using Feed Troughs Small feed troughs are more de sirable than the large hopper-type of feeders. With the small trough type of feeders fresh feed is put out several timet a week, which the birds wlii eat better than stale feed In the large type of feeder. Plenty of feeding and watering space is conducive to good production. A trough 4 feet long at which the birds can feed from both aides will feed 30 hens. At least three feeders 4 long should be allowed for each 100 birds. One-half Inch of drink ing space Is allowed per hen. Grain can best he fed in a trough when trouble la experienced tn keeping the Utter clean. Both Leghorns and dual purpose breeds are trough fed thin grains at the University of Ar kansas College of Agriculture at Fayette. The grain is fed twice a day, regulating the amount of grain given. The system of feeding grain is more satisfactory than feeding grain In dirty litter.—Hoard’s Dairy man. Toe Picking Habit The toe picking vice often starts Innocently enough In the brooder house, but must be watched so It does not spread. It usually starts when chicks pick at what to them is simply a bright object that turns out to be some little fellow’s toe nail. Continued picking may cause the skin to be broken Just above the toenail, and bleeding results. After this, the rest is easy; more picking occurs and more bleeding. Many poultrymen darken the brood er house for the first few days so this habit will not start Observe Regular Habits Regularity is one of the important factors In the successful manage ment of layers. dolDg the same things at the same time each day so that the hens come to look for them, and combining as many chores as possible at one time so the hens will be disturbed as little as possible. Cold, drafts and damp ness can be fought only one way and the way is to build a barrier against them. MYSTERY OF CHILD GANG IS SOLVED BY WOMEN POLICE 23 Youngster*, Between 7 and 12 Years Old, Seized in Cologne. Cologne, Germany. Cologne's Brltish-trn!ne<l female police have Just broken up a highly organized and effective Juvenile thief band which had baffled the law for months. A total of 23 children, ranging between seven and twelve years old, have been arrested. They probably will be sent to Juvenile detention homes until they are nineteen. The parents. If they are respon sible for their children's actions, will be punished most severely. Ttie police have not yet established who Inspired the thefts, but the simplicity and ease with which the unique scheme was worked point strongly to some adult “master mind." Process Is Explained. The process, explained by Frau leln Marianne PfahU commissar for the female division, was as follows: One of the children would enter the shop designated to be robbed and ask for a clgnr box for fret work. or perhaps for a cigarette picture card. The shop door was purposely left slightly ajar and while the shopkeeper was getting the box or card from the back room a second child entered and hid under the counter. The door being ajar, there was no bell-ring to announce bis entry. The first child received his request ed box or card, left the shop and the shopkeeper went about his business. The second child, having located the simple rashbox with which most German shops are equipped, emptied It at a favorable opportu nity and returned to hla hiding places A third child entering gave the second his chance to escape. The third requested also some sort of gift and left openly. Suspect Wrong Person. By the time the theft had been discovered the children had long since disappeared. In most cases, moreover, suspicion fell on the wrong persons, usually those living In the house, and as the shopkeeper did not wish to charge them the thefts remained undetected for some time. The thefts occurred all over town and the authorities have not yet discovered what became of the pro ceeds. The female police organized Au gust 1. 1&23. during the British oc cupation of the lthlneland. under the supervision of Commandant Al len of London. Their purpose at that time was to round op prosti tutes and undesirable women. Brittle-Boned Ohio Boy Ha* 63rd Major Fracture Bellalre. Ohio. Brittle-boned William Neuhart of Bhadyslde, on the Ohio river south of here, “did It again.” He broke bis right leg above the knee, sustaining the sixty-third ma jor fracture In his eventful eighteen years.

Father Fears Children Would Steal; Slays Foot Arad, Rumania.—With a sharp edged ax Joseph Rzabo, a Jobless carpenter, hacked to death his four children, aired two, three, five and six, and then cut his own throat with a razor.
