Associate Producer. Zenith Productions, Ltd/* He tossed the paper aside and sat staring at the wall. The prospect, he reflected, was far from appealing. Visions arose of endless quarrel ing and disagreement, of the wom an w riter s horror over each change In her precious creation. it didn't take much imagination; Hollywood history was replete with such occurrence*. Glumly I-ang realized that of the star as a private personality he knew nothing. Probably a tempe-n --mental sort, with Interest In noth ing but hla own footage. I-ang glanced at hla desk clock, scowled, and stood up. It was near ly eleven. Five minutes later. In Ft berg's of fice. the producer was saying: "Now. then; Mister Carlisle you already know—“ the actor nodded pleasantly from a nearby chair, “and this Is Miss Natalie I lean. the very lovely young lady who's going to help us make a fine picture from her wonderful book.*’ • I-ang faced the girl and felt a thrill of pleasurable surprise. Curled Into the corner of a huge divan, she seemed an almost Incred ibly small and childlike bundle. Yet he saw at once that her face bold a hint of mature wisdom. Luxuriant brown hair swept hack from a fore head high and smooth and rounded, while beneath It were dark blue ejea. curiously serene and clear. Natalie Dean said: “How do you do. Mister I-ang? ] hope you're not as disgusted as you ought to l»e— --drawing such a dub for a partner. Hut I promise to be good and not meddle.** The wonts were spoken simply, l-ang smiled and told her: “I'm sure we‘ll bate a grand time together.’* Then for an hour he sat by the desk while Fltnerg talked details. Occasional question* and com ments fame from Carlisle, but Nat alie Dean only listened, her man ner calm and somehow detached without aloffne**. tang found hla Interest steadily mounting. At last the conference broke up and a* they went out. Carlisle t«**k leave of the other two with a cor dial, "See yon later.” Natalie IN-:tn and tang walked through the reception room to the hall beyond. There she *topjn*d. looked up at him. and asked: "Think you'll manage to weather It?” I-ang laughed. “What a question !** he said, “of course—and like It. WhjrT* They sauntered on along the pass age as she answered: “Because I meant what I told you In there—- about not being a nuisance—and I wanted you to believe It.” He halted again and turned to face the girl. “Look here,** he said: “when I first heard about this assignment. It sounded pretty dismal. But now well. to t>e perfectly frank. 1 think you're splendid and that this la the nicest Job | ever ran Into. Is that enough?” Promptly and smilingly she re plied. “It is and l‘m glad: I rather feel the same way myself. . . . Good-by, then, until tomorrow." During the days that followed Natalie i>ean's sweet friend lines* made their hour* of work together thoroughly enjoyable, and the script rapidly took form. But for I-nng there swiftly came a deeper and more personal endear ment; each new moment with her he found brought Increased pleaa urh. Within four days, all doubt had vanished and he knew that it was | love. Then, with Ironic timeliness, the blow came. They were alone In the office, he at his desk and Natalie Dean across the room, reading. Idly toying with the notion of go ing suddenly over to fold her In his arms and press those beautiful, soft ly curving lips against his own, Lang didn't hear the door open and started as his name was spoken. Roland Carlisle stood by the desk, smiling agreeably down. As Lang rose, he said: “Just dropped by to see how thiugs were piling on. and —” he turned toward the girl, who waved a greeting, “to ask If our lady of let ters was unengaged for tha eve ning.” She nodded. “Then may I sug gest,” the actor went on. “that we take In a theater and supper at the Palm Grove?” Natalie Dean assented without hesitation, and the topic changed. But a sense of shock remained with I-ang—shock and a fiery re- I TIIK COOLIDGE EXAMINER sentment which l.e sought In vain subdue. Carlisle’s presence became sud denly Insufferable and he was shamelessly glad when the man de parted. Throughout the day's remainder. I-ang fought futileiy again*’ gn w ■ Ing frustration. To Natalie Dean he scnrcely sjw.ke. Starting for the studio next morn ing. however, hi* mood was altered. The affair, he determined, could and should be settled at once. Natalie I>ean readied the office ten minutes after his own arrival, and without preamble be said: **l want you to have dinner with me tonight.” Powdering her nose, she turned to throw him a quick little smile. "That's sweet of you.” she replied "but I'm sorry; Roland and I an going to the Colony this evening." Hope and happiness went out of him completely then. There was, of course, nothing fur ther to say or do. Day after miserable day dragged by. while the scenario progressed not at all and 1-ang'a gloom enor mously. Within a week, Natalie Dean and Carlisle had t*een s«*en together In all the city’s exclusive night haunts Gleefully, the movie columnists of each paper reported their appear ance. nnd freely termed It Holly wood’s newest romance. Toward l-ang. the girl's pleasant manner* didn't vary. Bitterly he reflected that to her their n**ocintion meant undiluted business.

Then, lunching alone In the com missary one day. tang sawr Carlisle enter with a striking blond. An air of Intimacy was Uiween them. 1-ater. pausing at the cashier’s desk, he stood for a moment near their table and the woman's voice reached him: . . still, I wanted to scratch that woman's e\ea out, Roille." Carelessly Carlisle answered: “Now. June darling, don’t be absurd. You know all nlrout that and that It's done with. I-ast night was the end.” In puzzled amazement, l-ang re turned to the office.

Then suddenly Natalie Dean was running toward the door, a queer tittle sound breaking from her lip*, j Lang glanced around, saw cheeks that were shiftily wet, and sprang after her. In another Instaut the girl was caught In hla arms, held cl<**e. and with reckless anguish he was say- i Ing: 'Nib. I don't care —I haven't any j pride! Natalie, look at me—listen to me—l love you!" She raised her tear-stained face to his with a smile he couldn't fathotn. "My dearest !** she said softly, “I’ve been so terribly afraid I’d never hear you say that. Didn’t you —want to?" I-ang averted his eye*, a brief twinge of hurt returning. “For a week." he answered, “I’ve wanted nothing else. But —well, j you’ve seemed pretty thoroughly takeu up with Carlisle, and I —” Her hand quickly cupped his chin ami lifted it. “You’re not serious?" she asked, her eyes incredulous, and, a* Lang was silent, went on: “You —you mean you didn't know the studio ar ranged the whole thing Just to give our picture publicity?

Ei>n»!on Poultryman. Ohio Hl»l» VftiftrtUjr,—WJtU Hrrvicf Farmers are tonkins; to the com fort of their liens this winter. They find It pays. Egg production Is m«>re constant during the cold win ter months. Many farmers have reduced the cubic content of their chicken houses, and others have in stalled heating systems to l*e used when the weather Is so cold the water In the houses freezes. False ceilings are Installed to cut the cubic capacity of the houses. Some are made with wire netting above. In which strnw Is stuffed. Other farmers employ n gooi! Insulating material. Because warm air rises. It Is the roof that needs to he Insulated. Some poultry men also insulate the walls In their poultry houses, some with straw held In place by wire netting, others with commercial In sulntlng material. Still others go further, modifying the window arrangement by elimi nating the bafflers formerly recom mended and fitting nil of the open ings with glass windows or gla*-. substitutes. Poultry men also are worrying less about damp floors in their poultry houses. Result* recently announced by experiment stations point to temperature control ns more Important than keeping the house thoroughly dry. When the temjienitnre In the house becomes so cold that the wa ter freezes In the drinking foua tains, brooder stoves are recom mended. The stove should be sur rounded with wire netting to kenß the litter away. Incubator Eggs and Baby Chicks Subject to Cedes Kven Incubator eggs and baby chirks are subject to code*. The outstanding feature of the proposed ltd' hatchery codes Is the develop ment of a nation. 1 breeding and disease eradication program In the poultry Industry of the United States. This program l» under the direction of the secretary of agri- • culture. The purpose of the code Is to pre vent unfair conqietltive practices and misleading and deceptive meth ods of advertising, and to promote the best Interests of the industry in all possible ways. It Is also altne I to aid workers In the hatcheries by specifying the hours of labor and wages. Also, an attempt Is made to protect the buyer against misrepresentation and fraud. Hatching Chicks In the day to day operation of the Incubator there Is perhnpa noth ing more lm|s»rtant than frequent nnd regular turning of the eggs. The more turning the better, at least up to four times In each 24 »hours. Turning Is more effective during the first half than during the latter half of the Incubation pe rlod. This suggests that It should be begun early. It Is considered sound practice to continue turning until the eggs begin to pip. One should not be In too much of a hurry to remove the chicks from the Incubator. They should be given time to become thoroughly dry. Chilling at that time consti tutes a serious handicap. If the hatch Is good the moisture from the* hatching chicks may be enough to chill them.—Kucessfal Farming. Fish Oil Aids Production Two years experimental work at the Dominion experimental farm. Scott. Snsk., has shown that pil chard (fish) oil added at the rate of 2 per cent to the laying mash of equal parts by weight of oat chop, barley chop, bran, shorts and beef scrap, has Increased egg pro duction 31 per cent over the pro duction from pullets fed the same mash without the oil. Cod liver oil, fed at the same rate. Increased production 20 per cent. Where fish meal was used to replace beef scrap in the mash, the production re mained practically constant and no objectionable flavor was detected In the eggs. When bran and shorts were replaced by ground whole wheat, production was increased by 3 per cent. New Breed of Poultry The Marsh-Daisy Is one of the new breeds of poultry that are at tracting attention among English fanciers. It is said to be a wonder fully hardy, prolific breed, especial ly adapted to low-lying marshy dis tricts. It is reported that these birds are splendid layers and that they continue as such until six or seven years of age. Quite a mlx j ture of breeds was used In their manufacture, the Hamburg, Leg horn, Old English Malay Game. Pit Game and Buttercup all being in cluded. They come In five varieties, Wheaten. Black.

FIVE ARE DRIVEN TO TRAGIC DEATHS BY IDLE GOSSIPS Expanaiion Is Given for Fa ther’* Slaying of “Babes in Woods.” Carlisle, Pa.—Did cruel, wagging tongues filing death to the three "babes In the woods.” the little girls whose bodies were found on lonely South mountain? Did vlllrge gossip—never seeing good but always finding bad—hack In Roseville, Calif., send Elmo Noakea and his pretty niece. Wini fred Pierce, driving frantically awny from people who could not or would rot understand? Did they brood, those two, over their especial misery until an end to all this came to their minds as the only thing to do—nnd so be- j Having tuck the little girls out of what they regarded as n pitiless world along with themselves? Background Given. Dispatches from Roseville sup plying the background of these five snuffed out lives—the aimless, hur ried wandering of the ex-marine, his step-daughter, Norma, twelve; his two little girls by Ids dead wife, De Willa, ton. and Cordelia, eight, and his elghteen-year-old niece— apparently point to such n solution. Winifred left school six months ngn to take care of the three little girls while their father was at work. Each night she went to her own home. Noakea, who lived In a modest frame house, had stend.v work nnd there seems to he proof of his bit terness over “gossip” In the fact that when he left Roseville on Armistice day he didn’t even draw two weeks* pay which was coming to him. The neighbors talked, and then some of the family objected. It , wasn't nio». they declared, for the | young girl to he there In the house with her uncle. Mrs. J. O. Glbby and Mrs. Winnie Chaffin still insist that Winifred had “an uncanny hold” over their ' brother. Saw Nothing Wrong. Junius Pierce, the dead girl’s brother, could see nothing wrong, still sees nothing wrong. And Robert Noakea. Elmo’s brother, sides with Winifred. In Rosednle he said: “There’s been trouble for several years. And I guess that's why Elino left home. There was nothing be tween Elmo nnd Winifred.” The quarrel hack In Roseville over whether Winifred should or should not look after the children flared Into flame following the Iden tifications when Russell Pierce swore out a warrant against Elmo Noakes’ two sisters and his own nunts. Mrs. Gibby and Mrs. Chaffin. He charged them with “abusing nnd cursing” his mother —Wini- fred’s mother. The two sisters later were sentenced to 00 days In jail. But at any rate n man In his misery thought he was better dead and w anted to take his loved ones j with him. So three little children were killed and laid tenderly In their last rest by a man whose grip on himself had gone. And then they were kissed by a young woman who .loved them and cared deeply for their poor, misguided father — so deeply that she went willingly to death with him. Egyptian Falls on Head; Now He’s Nine Feet Tall Alexandria. —Mahamed Ghazi, a j young Egyptian mason, is claimed; to he the tallest man In the world. I He Is w fetff. Three years ago he was less than H feet when he fell from a building on which he was working and In- j Jured his head, since then the best; doctors In Egypt have not been able j to stem his rapid growth. The young man is so weak that! he has to lie down all day long, and the doctors are unable to oper ate owing to the weak state of his heart. He is now living with his parents ! in the largest room In the house, which, however, Is only 11 feet j long, and If Moharaed growi much j taller he will have to he taken back to the hospital where the rooms are larger. Dog and Guns Fail, but Old Flivver Bags Birds North Olmstead. Ohio—Two hunt ers and their dog were rolling home empty-handed, at dusk. The dog was as sorrowful as the men. And the men had made big talk to their wives that morning about how many pheasants they would bag. Suddenly there was a drumming sound. Out of the thick under- 1 growth at the roadside rose three pheasants. They swept upward across the highway. But even a tired flivver couldn’t stop quickly enough to miss hitting two of them Leaving their shotguns in the car, the hunters leaped out, picked up the two birds, both hens, and start ed home. Big Swordfish Catch Glace Bay. N. S.—Nova Scotia’s famous swordfish fishing fleet Is back home again after one of the best seasons In years. The fleet returned with more than 135,000 pounds of swordfish.
