CHAPTER XI. ( Continued. )
"I am glad you are going to have a
ihangc , " volunteered Marguerite tim
idly. "I hope you don't mind my say
ing so , but you look quite 111 ; 1 noticed
directly I saw you. "
"I am In trouble , Ml s Lllboiirno and
that's the truth ; I'm afraid change of
air won't cure It. "
"Oh , how sorry I am. " Her eyes
filled with sympathy. "What a world
of trouble It Is ! You In trouble , too ?
You ought not to vex yourself HO about
my affairs , if you have trouble of your
own. "
"My trouble la harder to hear than
yourfl , " he mild , "because It IB of' my
own making. It la the shadow of a
fault committed long ago. "
"And repented of ? " she nuked shyly.
"Heaven only knows how deeply ! "
"Ah , then It will bo all right , " Hhe
asserted brightly , "if you are ready to
Jitonol"
"Ah , " ho cried pltltully , "but sup
pose ono can't atone ? That Is the
hardest lesson the world leaches , Miss
Lllbourne. It Is so easy to wrong an
other , but so html so terribly hard to
set the wrong right again. "
She looked at him ennipntly. lie
was the last man fiom whom she
would have expected words like these.
Proud , self-contained , it man of the
world he had hitherto appeared ; yet' ,
now it seemed as if he wore asking
her little Marguerite for pity and
counsel.
"Havo you asked the person whom
you wronged to forgive you ? " she
questioned with a certain solemnity.
"No , " was the almost Inaudible re
ply.
ply."Ah
"Ah ! " she said softly , "that's what
I would do ! Please don't think me
impertinent I know I am not at all
competent to advise you. "
"That la what you would have mode
do ? " ho asked. "You would have mo
say , 'I did you a grevious wrong I
Imagining It to he a patient comr
for liniment or coiigh-mlxluro , hhe
went straight Into the dining-room ,
and WIIH at once confronted by a re
spectably-dressed woman , evidently
provincial.
"There , " Bald the woman triumph
antly , the Instant Marguerite appeared
"It's her I knew It was. I Knew
I Hhould know her first minute I
clapped eye to her face. Well , miss ,
you and IIIO'B mot before , ain't we ? "
"Have wo ? " mild Marguerite.
"Don't you remember me , my dear ? "
asked the woman , evidently disap
pointed.
"No ; I don't lomembor yon at all. "
"Not Mrs. Acland ? "
"No. Wlioro do you come from , Mrs.
Acland , please ? " Marguerite iiHked the
question with a certain vchumonce , ad
vancing toward her visitor , and lookIng -
Ing earnestly at her face.
"My stars she don't icmombor mo ! "
said the woman again. "Why , my
dear , 'tain'L four years ago Hlnco you
saw mo every day of your life for six
weoks. "
"Did I did I ? " cried Marguerite , her
head In a whirl of excitement. "Oh ,
Mrs. Acland , tell mo about it do !
Do you coino from Devonshire or Corn
wall ? "
"Torquay , my dear , to bo mire. You
mean to say you've been and forgot
that , too ? "
"I've forgotten everything , " replied
Marguerite , trembling with eagerness.
"I've been very 111 and forgotten all
sorts of things ; but I do believe you're
the very person I've been wanting so
long. Tell me who are you ? "
"Tho landlady of fi , Ponsdon Cres
cent , my dear , where your uncle
brought you , four years ago come
November. Ah , my dear , I remember
it all so well ! A poor , nervous thing
you wore , starting at every sound ; and
your undo seemed so hard on you , it
wont to my heart , it did. "
"HE GLANCED UP , SAW HER , AND RAISED HIS HAT. "
cannot undo It now , but I ropont. Forgive - I
give mo ! ' "
"Yes , " she replied , with a nod of her
jirotty head , I would Bay that. "
"And suppose by that confession I
lowered myself In the eyes of the portion
tion whom before all others in the
world I desired to stand well with ? "
"I think , " she answered shyly , won
dering at the strange intensity with
which ho questioned her "I think you
would have to bear that as a penance
for your fault. "
His strange eyes looked down at her
Bweot , ingenuous face with a gaze she
could not understand.
"I shall think over your advice , " ho
eald earnestly , "nnd try to follow it.
Will you give mo your best wishes ? "
"Yes , " she replied , her face suddenly
Hushing. Ho moved away from her
ho felt that his BOlf-control was de
serting him ; ho must go ami lu-
etantly.
"Goodby , " he said hastily , unable to
raise his eyes to her faco. "I must
apologize for for staying so long. "
He left the room abruptly , before
she hod tlmo to reply. Actuated by an
indescribable impulse , she went to the
window to see him pass. Ho glanced
up , saw her , and raised his hat with a
oudden smllo of pleasure , indicating
with one hand the marguerites in his
buttdn-hole. She drew back as ho dis
appeared , holding her hands to her
bead.
"What did that remind mo of ? " she
eald slowly. "Oh , what did it remind
me of ? I fool as though I had gone
, through a similar experience before
lit seemed quite natural to be looking
: out of the window and waving m >
hand to him. " She broke into a little
laugh. "I think I must bo losing m >
senses , but for the moment the imprcs
Blon was wonderfully strong. "
CHAPTER XII.
Two days later , on reaching home
fU > ra walk , she was told that a worn
an was waiting to aeo hor.
Marguerite sank into a chair horace

"All all ! I had brain fovor. "
The woman glanced down the
girl's clasped hands.
"So ho '
didn't marry you , after all ? "
she said , with some show of surprise.
"Oh , begin at the beginning ! " said
Marguerite , blushing. "Toll me all
ibout it , please. "
"First , you must know , " began the
good woman , "that I always thought it
wasn't all right , for this reason that
though the young man used to come
courting on the sly , when your undo
was out , he used to write letters to
him , for I scon ono myself , I did I
always misdoubted
that young man ,
though you did act such store by him ;
and I says to my cook , as I remember
very well , 'If any one's being deceived
it's the child herself , and not her un
cle , ' I says. So , my dear , I kept the
address of the letter I see , thlnklnc
uno day it'll como in useful. ' And
sure enough it did ! But It was very
strange. Hero was I never been out
of Torquay this twenty year , and Just
fixed ' In my lulnd to como up by the
'curaion , when I BOO this in the pa
pers. ' She laid a slip of paper before
Marguerite , a copy of Bernard's nd-
vertlsomont. "I nUiis guessed it had
boon done at St. Boniface. " she said
In triumph ; "so when I see that ad
vertisement , I says , 'There's trouble ,
and I must apeak up and tell what I
know.1 I won't deny that I always
Iked Mr. Phillips , " she added paren-
hotlcally ; "and chiefly because you nl-
ivays cheered up so when ho come. So ,
when I see the advertisement , I Just
ran up to at. Bonlfaco ; and the cleric j
and mo , we searched thn register. And
lore's the copy of It , miss , as I brought'
with me to make sure. "
Marguerite raised her eyes to the
paper and looked.
There wore the two signatures , ono
under the other "Arthur Phillips , "
'Marguerite Lllboiirno.
Her heart sank ; she did not remem
ber the name In the least. It touched
no chord of memory. Till now she
had cherished a vague Idea that with
the name of the man she had married
ivoiild como a ilood of recollection. But
10 !
"Arthur Phillips Arthur Phillips , "
she repeated hopelessly ; "I am certain
never know any one'of that name , "
She loaned her chin on her hand.
The effort to remember was painfully1
ntcnse.
"There was somebody , " she sald |
slowly , "who used to used to at
east , I used to look out of the window'
for him. I called him some name
lot Arthur. A abort name something
like Phil ; but It wasn't Phil. 1 should
know It If I heard it , I think. Oh ,
ilon't you remember it ? " she asked
plteoiiHly of Mrs. Acland.
The woman shook her head.
"I don't , " she answered ; "but I do re
member you was so took up with him.
But , bless you , Arthur Phillips worn't
his real name ! I seen that plain
enough all the time. "
"Not his real name ? "
"No , my dear. Ho never married you
for no good of that I'm sure ! I ought' '
never to 'a let you 'a gone off with
him. Ho como and said your uncle
was ill , and ho was to take you to
him ; but , when ho put you in the car-
lago and tlrovo off , my heart misgave
mo , for I see there was another man
with him ; and I'm morally pursuaded ,
my dear , that that other was Mr. Brau-
: Ion hlssclf all the time disgulsed.yoti
know. I never seen you again , my
lear , till this minute. But tnat after
noon , when Mr. Brandon came raging
nnd shouting and wanting to know
where you was , I thought directly that
he was only putting it on , and knowod
fast enough where you was all the
time. Well , my dear , I s'pose If I'd
'a done my duty I'd 'a gone to the per-
lice ; but I am a poor woman , with my
living to get , and I don't want no scan
dals about my house ; and then , you
see , I hadn't nothing to say no evi
dence , nor nothing of that kind. So
I Just kop' qulot ; but it's bin on my
mind over since. "
"Mrs. Acland , " said Marguerite , sol
emnly , her hands clasped under her
chin , "you say I was in your house six
weeks , and that you saw mo every
day. "
"Yes , my dear. "
"Did it ever strike you that there
was anything odd about mo ? Did it
over occur to you that I was out of my
mind ? "
The woman's look of consternation
was evidently genuine. No , she had
never thought of that. "A poor little
nervous thing , " had boon her idea ,
much cowed , subdued , and bullied by
an overbearing uncle.

"Blscome Is a peculiar follow. "
"I don't know him. "
"You would find him amusing. Ho
moved out on the lake shore for the
summer and bought a Jersey cow. Then
ho hired a small boy to drive her up
from the pasture every afternoon. Ono
day the boy fell sick nnd Blscome
didn't know what to do about the cow.
Ho said to himself when ho looked at
her In the morning , 'She'll certainly
forget to como homo if the boy isn't
there to call her attention to the fact
that she has a home. ' Then ho looked
at the cow some more"and pretty soon
ho stumbled on what seemed to him a
brilliant idea. "
"Was it ? "
"You must judge for yourself. Ho
tied a knot in the cow's tall to remind
her that there was something she
mustn't forget. " Cleveland Plain

"Ood Ilium Our Homo. "
"In a homo in the country , not far
from town , " says the Catlettsburg
( Ky. ) Independent , "there may bo soon
quite a pile of sewing lying on the
Hoer , nearly In the middle of the room
that has been undisturbed for moro
than six months. At that tlmo the
head of the house wanted a chair , and
seeing but ono handy , ho dumped to
the Hoer the sewing which lay upon
it. Ills wife asked him to pick it up
Ho said ho wouldn't do It. She told
him , as ho throw it there , It could re
main until ho got ready to pick It up.
She would never touch it. And then
it remains , a memorial to an Inconv
patlbility of disposition. "

Another nccusntlon Is inncle against

of using jiiire annatto coloring , they
iso the poisonous coal tar dye because
t is cheaper.Vo are not In n position
o prove or disprove this , but cortaln-
y all use of coloring matter not pure-
y vegetable should be fought to the
ilttur end. it is a well-known fact
hat butter colors made from coal tar
mvc liccn on the market for years ,
doubtless some butter has been colored
> y them , but It is claimed that this
practice is about universal in the case
of butterlnc. Let us see , according to
vhat has been said about bnttcrinc it
consists of beef and hog fat , some veg

coal tar coloring matter. A nice con

The r > qtifl ! hnve boon making some
more tests In regard to the pasleurlz-
ng of milk for the purpose of killing
germs of tuberctilosib and other dis
eases. It has boon the practice to heat
-he milk and cream to about 15S de
grees , but it was believed that It was
not possible to go much above that
: ioint without Injuring the natality o
: he butter by giving it a cooked taste.
Further trials demonstrated the fact
that cream can be heated to 185 de-
; rees and even to 193 degrees without
Injuring the quality of the subsequent
Gutter , provided the cream be imme
diately cooled to 55 degrees. It was
remarked that in some cases the but
ter did have a slightly cooked flavor
when first made , but that this cooked
flavor disappeared within two days
after making. In the state butter
shows last year 713 creameries com
peted , and of these all but five pas
teurized their cream. Of the five that
did not pasteurize four occupied the
four lowest places in the list of awards
and the fifth was little better.

A New Zealand paper says : "The
exasperating doubt and mystery which
surrounds our butter after It leaves
these shores has never been more
keenly felt than during the past sea
son. The old tale Is repeated of brands
of butter leaving hero with the best
of New Zealand reputations and judged
at home as being Inferior to brands
over which they scored at this end. In
spite of this repeated trouble and the
'fishy' conundrum no attempt has yet
teen made to follow the butter up
from its shipment hero till sale at
home. " We think the matter Is easy
of solution. Wo remember that at one
of the Wisconsin Dairyman's conven
tions Mr. J. H. Monrtul made the re
mark that the highest flavored butter
Is not always the best keeper. Some
times the butter that has been handled
and washed in such a way that it has
only a fair flavor at the start will be
found several months later to have as
good flavor as at first , while the very
high flavored butter will be found de
cidedly off. He said for this reason it
Is not fair to judge butter without con
sidering the end to which it Is to be
put or its market. The butter that Is
to go across the ocean needs to bo made
with staying qualities in view. He
said It will be frequently found that
If two lots of butter arc scored , say
two months apart , the position of their
scores will be reversed in the second
scoring. The New Zealandcrs have
evidently had a practical illustration
of this truth.
Squill )
Iu recent years squabs are considered
such an appetizing dish that they are
added to the bill-of-fare of all first-
class hotels , although they are not al
ways mentioned as squabs , being too
often served up to their customers as
quail , writes G. A. Dell in the Poultry
Tribune. The breeding of squabs for
market can bo conducted by farmers
or by the gentler sex , and made a
source of great profit , provided it is
handled properly. First consider the
cracks are stopped up and nest boxes
loft an old barn will do if all the
put in. Second , the breeding stock ,
which Is an important item. No bird
has been found to answer this purpose
as well as the homing pigeon , especial
ly the White Homer , as white flesh is
what the consumer wants. If White
Homers cannot bo gotten , the next best
color Is silver or light blue. It is im
portant to be careful to select pure
bred homers , as they give the best re
sults. The care and cost of breeding
is very small In comparison to the
profits. They must bo kept clean ,
boxes and other fixture ? to bo white
washed , and a good supply of gravel
and fresh drinking water and a small ,
shallow pan for bathing.
Squabs grow very rapidly , and In
three or four weeks they nro ready to
kill. Squabs of good breeds will aver
age six pounds to the dozen , and they
sell for 40 and GO cents per pound ,
wholesale. The cost to nstablish a loft
to accommodate COO pairs , complete ,
birds and everything , would bo about
| 850. On every farm there are ono or
two who could bo spared for an hour
a day to look after the pigeons. There
Is also a great deal of grain wasted
that might bo helping the farmer to
pay off a mortgage or some other debt
If it is just used in the right way.
Every well regulated farm should have
a loft for pigeons , with a largo aviary
mndo of wire to keep them from the
fields.
Hprviul of TulHTcuIosU.
In a lecture by Dr. Norner-IIallo
reported In Milch Zeltung , ho gives the
following causes as weakening the
constitution ami predisposing the cows
to the above disease :
1. Continuous existence in small
poorly ventilated and crowded stables.
2. Insufficient food and the use of a
largo quantity of offal from breweries
and distilleries.
3. Forced milk production.
1. Those cows that have narrow
chests and a weak constitution.
5. By frequently changing the po
sition of the cows , which Is done In
stables where the fresh milking cows
and the dry ones are arranged In
groups.
C. Inbreeding.
7. Animals , the parents of which
have luberculosU. They are not born
ivith the disease , but have little pow
ers of resistance against the germs.
S. When the calves are kept in
close and poorly ventilated quarters
and not given exercUc , the lungs are
not sufficiently developed and succumb
easily to the disease.
9. The great development of the
creamery system whereby the skim-
milk Is mixed before returning it to
tlie farmers.
i\crtliliif : ; M.illloui.
The proper exeic.se of stallions mak
ing a season is all Important , even
more Important than the particular
kind of food they eat. From a pam
pered stallion that Is closely confined
to the stable , with no out-door driving ,
riding or exercise , but a small per cent
of foals can bo expected , and those
that do come will amount to but little.
Stiength , vigor , power cannot be Im
parted where it is not possessed , and
these qualities can only bo secured by
healthy , strong cscrcke. In an article
in the- Horseman , Mr. L. V. D. Shep
herd , an old experienced breeder , is
reported as saying that ho once leased
a stallion to a party for the season ,
who was very particular in regard to
the animal's diet , giving him hay , oats ,
grass and mashes ; but to keep him fat
and plump , gave him no exercise ; the
result being that but a very small per
centage of the mares got with foal.
The next season he leased the horse
to another party , who fed him con
tinually on nothing but dry hay and
hard corn on the cob , but gave him
plenty of work , and out of about ono
hundred mares got elghty-flvo with
foal. Here was one instance at least
where it showed pretty conclusively
the Importance of exercise , and that IB
the predominant factor In developing
the functions of the procreatlvo or
gans , as the mode of feeding in the
latter case was certainly not as con
ducive to that result as that of the
former.
Sulphur uiid Sliuup Ticks.
Several years ago my flock was both
ered with the little red sheep louse. I
tried dipping , but for some reason
made a failure. Some one advised sul
phur , so I got fifty pounds and mixed
enough with the salt to color it strong
ly say about a quart to the half-
bushel , I kept giving through the
summer , though I was careful not to
give if it threatened to storm. I was
and am a little afraid of the stuff.
When I came to shear the next spring
I found not one single tick on several
hundred head. My flock has been com
pletely free of ticks over since , as I
give several doses every summer , says
a contributor to Wallace's Farmer.
Now , possibly it may bo that If sul
phur will dispose of big , leathery sheep
ticks and lice , it would do the same
for the scab mite. I do not feed any
salt through April and May.
Poorly-Fattened Fowls. It Is impos
sible to walk through the markets at
any time without seeing largo quanti
ties of extremely poor turkeys , fowl
and chickens. It Is seldom that ono
sees a poorly fattened hog In the mar
ket. If It pays to stuff with corn a
hog that won t not his feeder live cents
a pound dressed , why Isn't it good
business sense to use some of that
corn to fatten a bird that will bring
twice as much per pound ? Will the
same corn make twice as many pounds
of pork as poultry ? If not , it would
seem wiser to put the corn where it
will do the most good. Rural Now

False Economy. The attempt to
keep thirty or moro hens in a poultry
house that is adaptable for only twenty
results In fewer eggs from the thirty
hens than If a smaller number occu
pied the space. Cases are numerous
where a few hens layed well , while
large flocks gave no returns. The hens
must bo comfortable or they will not
thrive , and during the warm season
there Is no surer method of ceasing
egg production than to have too many
hens together. There is no economy
In crowding them , for what is gained
In ono direction is lost in another.

Damage by Hawks. Wo know of no
method that will protect chicks from
hawks , If the chicks are permitted to
run at large. A yard covered with
wire netting is the best protection , and
It will pay to have such a yard , as the
destruction by hawks Is enormous.
The farmer does not know the extent
of the damage done him by hawks , as
hero are scores of chicks destroyed of
which ho is not aware. Ho simply
knows that they are missing , and there
is no way to save them except to
ihelter them until they are large. fix.
Los Angeles Butter-Milk Trade.
A Callfornlan paper states that butter
milk drinking Is a big business in Los
Angeles. Over 1,000 gallons are drunk
daily. The early morning trains bring
in largo quantities of the wholesome
fluid from the cold storages of the
creameries , and the city distributors
are on hand with their wagons to
carry It to local customers. Twelve
butter milk wagons are now running
In Los Angeles , seven ol which are
