"No. If you ha J you could never

to the scintliiani temptation. "You
have shown me I did not know you

She realized that this was the most
hitter moment of her life. Not until
now had the consciousness of her love
for Anthony Trent forced itself so
strongly upon her. She had admired
him at tirst for his skill and audac-
ity, for the insolent coolness with
which he had worked alone and
laughed at authority. Then she had
come to see the liner side of his com-
plex character, the generosity which
distinguished him and the absence of
pettiness. These characteristics she
buw now she had idealized until she
had reared upon their structure an

adversity's first breath, gone back to
the old and easier ways.

said, "try to forget what 1 suid."

he said, "I suppose there Is no more

•'Nothing," she answered. "1 can-
not repay you for all you have done
for me. I am afraid 1 shall never be
able to dofthat. I am leaving here to-
day. Gootl-by, Mr. Trent."
"Not tonight," he said earnestly,
"please do me one favor. I am leav-
ing town tonight and shan't be back
till Friday. Walt tiij then."
"I prefer to go tonight."
"If you won't do It as a favor 1
must put it in another way. I'm
afraid It will sound rather brutal.
Mademoiselle Dupln, you are under
certain obligations to me. Apparent-
ly they weigh rather heavily on your
mind. You can repay me by remain-

"Very well," she answered, reluc-

She did not understand how he could
still smile at her. What a nature of
contradictions was his!

federal authorities were still seeking

"And I'm to be one of the forgot-

Trent's destination was Washington

cer of wide influence who had for

of St. James. Anthony Trent had met
him in London under circumstances
so far out of the ordinary that he did
not think he would have difficulty in
recalling himself to Mr. Hill.
Cabinet officers are not eusy of ac-
cess. From his room at the New Wil-
lard Trent sought to speak to him
over the telephone. Tide proved to
be impossible. The cabinet officer was
protected from telephonic assaults by
a private secretary whose manners
were too brusque to suit Anthony
The secretary after learning that
Trent would not tell hiry why he de-
sired to see Mr. Hill said it was Idle
to continue the conversation.
Half an hour later Trent came face
to face with the secretary. He found
him a big, overbearing youth who was
holding his position during the recov-
ery from an automobile accident ot
the real incumbent of the situation.
"I can't ask Mr. Hill to see you un-
less I know what it's about," he said
"It Is1 private business," Trent re-
turned. "| cannot discuss It witli you."

Knew What Ailed Him
"Mamma, I've got a stomach ache,"
said Peggy, aged five.
"That's because you haven't had
any lunch yet," answered Peggy's
mother. "Your stomach Is empty.
You would feel better If you had
something In It."
Thai ufternoon the minister called,
and in the course of conversation re-
marked that he had been suffering all
day with a severe headache.
"That's because It's empty," said
Peggy brightly. "You'd feel better If

-The fall months are a highly de-
sirable time for cleaning up lice on
farm animals. This timely reminder
is made by specialists of the bureau of
animal Industry, United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture. They point out
that lice on horses, cattle, and other
farm animals are generally most trou-
blesome in winter, but at that time ef-
fective treatment is very difficult
Hence it is important to free live
stock of lice before cold weather sets
In northern areas of the United
States the winter months are general-
ly too cold for safe dipping or spray-
ing, which are the two most effective
methods of freeing animals of lice.
Dusting powders are of some value,
during cold weather, In holding para-
sites in check, but such powders are
not considered dependable remedies.
Consequently, it is advisable to utilize
a period of mild weather during the
fall to delouse farm animals.
The effect of both the biting and the
sucking varieties of lice is to annoy
live stock, thus Interfering with their
feeding, rest, and comfort. Ducking
lice also cause some loss of blood.
For cattle and horses government spe-
cialists recommend arsenical dips,
coal-tar cresote dips, or nicotine solu-
tions. For dipping hogs, crude petro-
leum and coal-tar creosote dips are ef-
It is Important to treat all the an-
imals in a herd even though some ani-
mals appear to be free of lice. If only
a part of the herd is treated the para-
sites may spread by contact from one
animal to another. Even a few lice
on an unsuspected animal may reln-
fest the entire herd. Accordingly,
thoroughness is essential. Full direc-
tions for preparing und using dips are
contained in bulletins on the subject.

Blue Grass Superior
Crop for Pasturing
Blnegrass Is a good, early spring
And late fall pasture, but poor in sum-
mer. At its best It will not carry as
many pigs to the acre as alfalfa,
clover or rape, and they need more
protein feed with it. Winter rye also
makes a good fall and early spring
pasture. Usually lings can pasture It
until rape is ready. If they are taken
off in time a grain crop can be had
tli'1 same season.
Sweet clover is becoming more pop-
ular for late fall and early spring pas-
turing. It Is not as good as alfalfa
and red clover and the hogs may not
take to it at first. Like alfalfa, except
more pronounced, the soil for sweet
clover must be sweet. If It is not pas-
tured heavily enough to keep It down
sweet clover will get woody and tough
Soy beans do not last long as a pas
ture crop because they do uot grow
Blisters Harmless to
Hogs, Says Specialist
Those butchering swine often notice
gas bubbles on the small intestines.
These always are found near the thin
membrane which attaches the intes-

abdomen. The blisters vary from the
size of a small pea to that of a hazel-
