than likely he has received a call to

Calling at the hotel, Dick finds Colo
nel Bob already basking In the smiles
of his Dora, while Miss Pauline, at the
other end of the parlor is singing at
the piano. Dick feels a flash of jeal
ousy when he sees that she has a male
companion, and then chuckles at dis
covering Trofessor John, who, having
received the cold shoulder in one
quarter, has conceived the enormous
project of making himself solid In an
other. When Dick turns up, however.
Miss Paullue gives him so much of her
attention that even the obtuse and
stubborn little Briton discovers him
self de trop, and finally makes an ex
ruse to get away, muttering wild
threats against the combination that
he insists has been made up to freeze
him out of all congenial female soci
ety. Tkey have a very pleasant evening.
Dick and Miss Pauline get to know
each other better than ever, and this
mutual respect is gradually ripening
into earnest love. She sees in this

some, stalwart, brave to a fault, as she
knows, and, better still, he is well

could never be happy with a boor for
a husband, no matter what his other
good qualities might be.
At the same time Dick '.s keeping
something from her; the colonel no
tices that he become? very quiet
whenever the El Dorado mine is men
tioned, as though he did not care to
be reminded that this girl owns such
fabulous wealth. Once Colonel Bob
makes what seems to be a break, In
speaking of the great silver mine,
as he chances to draw a comparison,
be states that it was not the same as
when Dick was there, at which Miss
Pauline turns quickly upon tho other,
and says, in a surprised voice:
"Then you have been in Mexico
I did not understand that you were
"I made several tours through the
.ountry," he replies, with some show
of confusion which the New York
girl cannot understand.
"And you have visited the El Do

the mine with a friend in tow, who
was deeply Interested in all that per
tained to mining. We examined the
El Dorado with Interest, though I can
Hssure you It never at that time en

Dick must be treading on danger
ous ground when he stoops to flatter
like some denizens of tho deep, when
peeking to retreat they throw up a
cloud of sand to hide twfr move
ments so he quiets any suspicions
she may have by this praise, and then
coolly plunges Into another subject.
Miss Pauline has a queer feeling,
which she Is unable to explain, but
which causes strange thoughts to
arise, when, after the gentlemen have
gone, she gits before the cheery grate
fire, In her little private parlor, nn,d
ponders. Why should Dick listen to
er speaking of Mexico and the mines,
without saying he was familiar with
both? It would seem a natural thing
tor him to state such a fact and con

had become acquainted with through

Dick sits and muses at the window
while he finishes his last cigar. His
thoughts may bo of many things, but
it is pretty certain that they take In
one character in particular Miss
Pauline has entered his life and nev

a peculiar way, when tho footpads

Sitting there, he can look down into
the street, and along this to the great
artery it taps, the wonderful Champs
Ely sees, where, day and night, throngs
can be met, crowds that represent all
the phases of Parisian life, the soul
of the metropolis.
Few people walk along this by
street at such nn hour, and Dick's
eyes mechanically follow each one as
he strides briskly along.
Now comes a figure that does not
hurry he notices It particularly on
this account, and then gives some
thing of a start, rubbing his eyes.
"I-ooks like him wait, ho ap

he mutters, at the same time thank
ful that he Is on the shadowed side
of the street, and cannot be seen by
the sharp eyc3 below.
Half a minute passes Dick gives a
secret pull at his cigar, all the while
keeping his ryes fastened upon the
moving figures below.
"It's Barcelona, for a picayune.
Now. what in tho deuce Is he after
here?" he mutters.
The presence of the Mexican bull
fighter in Paris is in itself significant
he has come to help the stnor in
his game, and willingly joins forces
against Dick, whom he has long
hited. This he can easily understand,
but the visit of Barcelona to tho of
fice of the prefect, and now 'his pres
ence In the street where their lodging
house Is slt-iated. prove stumbling
blocks to the young American.
He leans out of tho window, n little
positive that the man below can not
see Mm, for there Is no light In tho
room, Bob having retired.
The light from the street lamp has
shown tho watcher above quite
enough to prove tho Identity of the
man on the pavement beyond a shad
ow of a doubt.
When just opposite the house the
Mexican comes to a full stop, and.
seems to look earnestly upward. Then
he walks on, passes down the street-disappears.

and, like the Mexican, vanishes from
"By George, this begins to grow in
teresting as well as mysterious," says
Dick, rubbing his eyes as if to make
sure that he is awake.
A few minutes after and his eyes
are again riveted upon a figure com
"Number Three! Bless my soul,
this is very like a play, where the vil
lains steal upon the stage, take a look
at tho doomed house, and move on."
An idea flashes into his head, and
with Dick to conceive a thing is
equivalent to doing it, since the one
follows so closely upon the other. All
he has to do is to snatch up his hat,
open the door, and pass down the
stairs as rapidly as he can consistent
ly with absolute silence.
It only takes a minute or two for
an agile man to descend several
flights of stairs in this manner, and
Dick presently finds himself at the
door, which ho opens softly.
He is just In time to see the man

surface upon his memory, when he
also glides down the street just as
the others did before him.
Dick follows suit on the opposite
pavement and strives to avoid at
tracting attention. Ho has a natural
curiosity to see what this all means,
believing there must be a concerted
movement against him and his friend.
Around a corner he follows the un
knownit Is dlfiicult at times to keep
an eye on him, but Dirk is a natural
born hunter, and quick to see little
things. Now the man Is no longer
alone, but has a companion; under the
glare from a rliop window Dick sees It
is the MexL-an. Do they compare
r.ot"s is there a conspiracy of some
sort against the two Americans?
The men walk on, talking In an
earnest manner. Dick wishes he were
gifted with an acute hearing that
would bring their words to him, for
whether they speak In' French or
Spanish, he is equally at home.
He knows not why ho follows, un
less It is in the hope of learning
something concerning the movements
of his enemies. Dick has acted as a
scout and spy more than once In bor
der warfare, for along the Rio Grande
there 13 generally something in the
way of "business" on the tapis. Hence
he knows how to carry himself upon
such an occasion as the present.
Unconsciously he is being led to
one of the worst quarters among the
faubourgs of Paris. In a narrow,
rather dark street, which he passes
through while following these men,
he sees a colored lamp hung over a
doorway, and knows this is the office
of a commissalrc of police, each quar
ter having such an officer, all of w hom
are under the orders of the prefect.

Why Too Many Laws Are Made.
The growing tendency of legisla
tures to pass laws has become a
source of alarm to many who view
with candor the results attained by
the various sessions. What can be
done to check the flow of useless and
mischievous lawmaking is a question
that affects our democracy. The pres
sure upon members of legislatures for
laws is two-fold. It comes from those
who make a special demand upon
those they have assisted to elect On
the other hand, there is a strong mo
tive working upon the legislator him
self a desire to make a record. To
make a record and secure his re-election
the member feels that ho must
connect his name with some bill which
will make a stir. Such men are often
re-elected upon their "record" and
other men who did nothing but vote
"no"' are left at home because they
"did not do anything." Minneapolis

Feeding Meat to Fowls.
Will you kindly tell me through
number of years.
Charlton County, Mo.
When we speak about meat feeding
to fowls, we may mean one of several
kinds of feeding. One of the most
common methods of deeding meat is
to buy the commercial meat meal. This
is a packing house product. In the
stockyards they have a great deal of
lean meat that cannot be used In the
general meat trade, '-.his Is collected
in large quantities and dried In kilns
It Is dried until no moisture remains
In It It is then crisp and hard. It
Is In that condition passed through
mills and ground up fine, and some
bone is ground with it. The larger
part of It, however, consists of lean
meat This is sold in the general mar
kets at about 2Ac retail. Being de
void of moisture, It is altogether an
economical feed to use. It is not fed
by Itself, but is generally mixed in
a little warm mash in the proportion
of about one part of meat meal to five
parts of other kind of meal. Both

We ,t The
meat meal can bo kept for months In
winter, but in summer it is difficult to
keep unless It is kept In an airtight
receptable or In a cold storage house
In the warm months of the year It
draws moisture to It and begins to
decay. Some poultrymen, therefore,
make a practice of feeding it only
turough the cool months of fall and
spring and during the winter, depend
Ing on other food for use In the sum
Another method of feeding meat Is
to buy the cheaper portions that may
be obtained in the butcher shops
These, however, are not easy to obtain
and have to be bought fresh every few
days. Another method of meat feed
Ing is to secure fresh bones on which
there is still much meat and running
them through the bone cutter. The
resulting mass contains a very large
percentage of pure meat. This is a
system that we have long advocated,
but does not yet appear to be in very
general use. Another system of meat
feeding, if it may be called such, is
the use of dried blood from the pack
ing houses. When thLs blood Is fed it
is added to a meal mixture In the pro
portion of part of blood to ID parts of
meal. This blood Is exceedingly rich
in nitrogen and cannot be fed In as
large a quantity as commercial meat
meal, fresh meat pr ground bone
Moreover, It is the experience of many
poultrymen that fowls will not eat the
preparation in which is the blood
Whether this is due to a very rank
smell of blood or due to the fact that
putrefaction has set in, we do not
know. Here and there a poultryman
reports that he has great success in
the feeding of dried blood to poultry.
There is no doubt but that the method
being followed by our correspondent

Leguminous Plants for Swine.
Especially In the corn belt the ure
of leguminous plants for swine Is
greatly to be recommended. These
plants act as a balancer of the ration
that the swine gets most of, that Is,
corn. The man that can raise alfalfa
Is fortunate In having a green forage
plant that Is exceedingly rich In pro
tein and thus suited to the building
up of a compact, firm frame. Pigs
fed on a properly balanced ration will
not be weak-boned, but will be able
to withstand many adverse conditions
that would be too much for them if
built upon a carbonaceous ration.
'Pigs in clover" has become a popu
lar reference and comparison, and, un
like most popular fancies. It is based
on real merit. Turn the pigs Into a
clover field and feed them corn In the
barn and they will thrive. They will
develop powerful frames and as breed
ers will be more prolific than those
pigs that have never tasted the Juxury
of a field of fresh clover. Peas that
are commonly grown in the field are
very suitable for pig feed and are
greedily eaten. The hog fancies green
peas as much as the human being.
When the vines are not too ripe he
will eat the vines as well as the
1 As I travel about through this
county I notice that there has
been a great decrease in the fer
tility of many farms. In times past,
according to the reports of the farm
ers and my own observations, the
crops were much larger than at pres
ent. The cause for this decreased fer
tility is the continued growing of
corn year after year and no proper
regard to rotations. So far as I can
understand, the chief lack in the soil
if the worst run-down farms is humus.
The farmers are doing almost nothing
to bring these farms back to their first
fertility. According to my experience
I believe that live stock farming,
which will give a large amount of
Available fertility, will bring back
these farms to their original condition

is used in the rotation. C. D. Smitk

It is my experience as to the
general practice of farmers that
very few keep any accounts I
might say that when accounts are kept
hey generally comprise only the wife's
bonnet bills. Just now I am not en
gaged Individually In farming, but if 1
were I would keep book record of
everything. I believe that a man should
keep an account of every crop grown
as well as the general transactions of
he farm. I believe that our systems
of farm bookkeeping should bo very
much Improved. I would suggest a
enderlng of a regular expense account
and keeping a record of all receipts.

"Hard" Water Harmful.
A physician who has practiced for
thirty years In a California valley
says the hillside upon which he live3
is of granite formation, and the wat

"soft." The other side of -the hill Is
composed of limestone, and the water
from the springs and well Is "hard."
The doctor has been struck with the
fact that his practice Is enormously
greater In the limestone district. He
finds that . tho hard water drinkers die
of Bright' s disease and are crippled
with chronic rheumatism, while the
