Curious Fact Comes to Light That Lo

Washington, D. C. A curious fact

Lime Will Increase
Your Land's Yield
PuWerked limestone, as every
farmer knows today, has proven
Itself a necessity on the farm
where acid soil prevails and
when full yield per acre is the
aim of the farm owner.
Solvay Pulverized
Is used by the big majority of
farmers In your state. Your
neighbors use it.
More finely pulverized con

limestone you can buy.

Slowly the big car stopped In front
of the white schoolhouse that was
perched upon a low hill. It was after
school hours and there was nothinjj
that indicated the house had been
filled with noisy boys and girls only a
half-hour before.
"Yes, this is the very place," said
the occupant of the car aloud. "Not
much changed, either, since I ate nay
dinner on that rock, barefooted and
happy. New paint, shades and a hall
give it a more modern appearance. I
wonder If the old desks are Inside.
I'm going to Investigate," and suiting
his actions to his words he was soon
'testing the hall door. To his surprise
It yielded to his touch. "Janitor must
be a little careless," he thought, as he
crossed the narrow hall and entered
the schoolroom. In the dusk of the
short, wintry afternoon he could see
that the room had changed. New
desks, blackboards, pictures and sash
curtains gave It an unfamiliar aspect.
The fire was not wholly out In the big
stove, and as the man warmed his fin
gers he became conscious that he was
not alone. Turning, he fuced the
teacher's desk. A slip of a girl, with
traces of tears on an unusually pretty
face, sat behind It, watching him. For
a moment the man looked at her, and
then in a kindly voice asked:
"No, not entirely that," replied the
girl, wlnklnp? hard to keep back the
"Discouraged and tired?" he contin
ued. "Yes," quickly answered the girl.
"Ah!" said the man, pausing to
draw a chair nearer to the stool, "but
I don't believe It's nearly as bad as
you think."
"Yes, it is. This morning I was Just
as happy, thinking of all the beautiful
Chrlstmus stories I was going to teach
the children and what a good time we
would have illustrating them."
"And what marred your plans?
Weren't the children Interested?"
"Interested? You ought to have
seen them; but It's a member of the
school board. He had to visit us this
afternoon and spoil everything. Hi
didn't want me elected because I had
alays lived In the city and this was
my first year of teaching. Outside of
a few small summer resorts I' know
nothing of the country, but I argued
the children would be Ignorant of city
life, and I could give them that. This
afternoon we had practical arithmetic,
original problems. Some of the prices
of grains, pigs (live weight), wood and
fertilizers the older children didn't
agree on, and I knew nothing about
them. Mr. P gave us the correct
prices. After school was dismissed ht
asked me if It would not be as well
to acquaint myself with what the boys
and girls were interested In. The new
superintendent is a young roan, and
this Is his first year also. Of coursa
he will do just what the school board
tells him to do, and I shall be asked
to resign, and you don't know how I
hate to go home .because I've failed."
"I think I do," answered the man
with a kind smile.
For a few minutes they talked, tha
man telling humorous experiences that
had happened when as a little boy ha
had sat on the long board that served
as a sent, and vainly tried to maka
his feet touch the floor, until the girl
forgot about her troubles; then he
took her to her boarding place. It
was not until the car was out of sight
that the girl remembered she did not
know the man's name.
Two weeks quickly passed. Busy
with her work, the girl had almost for
gotten the new superintendent, and
that she had intended resigning her
school. She faithfully studied farm
products nnd could satisfy the most
exacting member of the school board
on their market values.
School had Just been dismissed. The
girl, picking up papers, was singing
softly to herself, "() Little Town of
Ilethlehem," when a small boy who
had boon clapping erasers rushed into
the room.
"Miss M ! Miss M 1" he
cried. "The new superintendent Is out
here In the dandiest car!"
i "Hush, Robert," she said 'as she
turned to greet the superintendent,
who had followed close after the boy.
Slowly the color receded from her face
only to rush back in a burning blush
as she looked at the man In front of
"Miss M ," he Mas saying in the
same kind voice that had haunted her
for two weeks, "I really intended to
get here earlier, but a bad tire de-
' talned me. However, I thought I
j would get here before school dis
missed, but I'm ten minutes too late."
I "Why you are if you are Mr.
0 , the superintendent, it wns un
fair," snid the girl, her eyes flashing.
"Yes, I guess it was," replied Mr.
C , "but really, Miss M , . it
wasn't an official visit and I had for
gotten the fact myself until it was too
late. So let us forget It and begin
over again today."
"4 can't. It was so childish and stu
pid of me."
"If your work Is finished I'd like
very much to help make you forget
by taking you for n ride. The air is
cool and brisk. Besides I want to tell
you your resignation will not be ac
cepted at least this term."
"Say," remarked precocious Robert
a few minutes later, as he watched the
big car out of sight, "I'll bet Miss
jl won't fetich very long. She is
Just the bestest, prettiest girl I know,
and that's the dandiest car."

After a lung and boring evening, Koy
G finully said "Good night," re
ceiving u very chilly answer on Joy
N 'a part. Mrs. N 's "tiood
night," was said In a pitying, uikIo
getlc tone. After the dbor closed, she
turned to Joy.
"You don't know when you're well
off; Joy," she cried. "Here you have
the chance to marry a young mun
with good prospects and who loves
you. Yet you spurn him. I had to
come lr here tonight, for fear Boy
would go to sleep, your conversation
was so Interesting."
It was a fine bit of sarcasm, but Joy
did not mind. "He is not my ideal,
mother," she said. "Hie man I marry
must be better looking than he is, and
I don't want him to have good pros
pects; he must be enormously rich."
Mrs. N - sighed. It was certainly
no use to talk to Joy.
Two weeks later, Joy went to New
Hampshire for her usual autumn, va
cation with her grandmother. She ex
pected to have a better time than ever
this year, because her grandmother had
written to tell her, that there was n
house-party about half a mile away.
The party was chiefly made up of
young people. v
They were a Jolly crowd and she en
Joyed herself Immensely, but all were
glad to rest for dinner. While Joy
was dressing, Christina James, one of
her young hostesses, came into the
"You look fine, Joy," she said after
surveying her guest. "I want you to
look your best tonfght, because a man
has Just come, whom we want you to
tnM. He's tha catch of the season,
dear, and as he doenn't care especially
about any of us, wa want you to st
what you can da."
At dinner, therefore, Joy was Intro
duced to King W , the aforesaid
Prtnxre Charming. IIr heart throbbed,
suddenly, n saving him. Where had
she ever seen such a man before7 He
was tall and light with sympathetic
dark-brown eyaa, a wonderful smile,
and an engaging personality.
On the other hand, Joy, herself was
a bewitching llttla creator. She had
quantities af wavy, cheatnut hair, vio
let eyes, and a clear, transparent com
plexion. King W , who admired
pretty faces exceedingly, Immediately
attached himself ta her and rarely left
her aide during tha evanlng. while the

10 or 15 minutes.

Joy's heart fluttered. She felt that
xhe could guess what he wanted to say.
He went on.
"You know" he ald, "It has been ln
