It pays to give the colt a chance to make the most of its in herited possibility of development, for an extra 200 or 300 pounds make a striking difference in the selling price of a work horse or mule. The maximum development is pos sible only when the colts are handled carefully and fed well during the first two or three years of their lives. CHAPTER XXI—Continued.

Into the Desert A week after the caravan of t'ue Due de Tremont left Algiers, Julia Red mond came unexpectedly to the villa of Madame de la Maine at an early morning hour. Madame de la Maine saw her standing on the threshold of her bedroom door. “Chere Madame." Julia said. "1 am leaving today with a dragoman and twenty servants to go Into the desert.” Madame de la Maine was still In bed. At nine o'clock she read her pa per« and her correspondence. “Into the desert—alone!” Julia, with her cravache In her gloved hands, smiled sweetly though she was very pale. “I had not though' of going alone, Madame." she replied with charming assurance, "I knew you would go with me." On a chair by her bed was a wrap per of blue silk and lace. The com tesse sprang up and then thrust her feet Into her slippers and stared at Julia. "What are you going to do In the desert ?" "Watch!” "Yes, yes!” nodded Madame de la Maine. "And your aunt?” "Deep In a bazaar for the hospital," smiled Miss Redmond. Madame de la Maine regarded her slender friend with admiration and envy. "Why hadn’t I thought of it?" She rang for her maid. "Because your great-grandfather was not a pioneer!” Miss Redmond answered. The sun which, all day long, held the desert In its burning embruce. went westward in bls own brilliant caravan. "The desert blossoms like a rose, Therese.” "Like a rose?” questioned Madame de la Maine. She was sitting in the door of her tent; her white dress and her white It was rare for the caravan to pass by Beni Medinet. The old woman's superstition foresaw danger in this visit. Her veil before her face, her gnarled old fingers held the fan with which the had been fanning Sabron She went out to the strangers. Down by the well a group of girl» in gar ments of blue and yellow, with earthen bottles on their beads, stood staring at Beni Medinet's unusual visitors. “Peace be with you.

It had the evanescent quality of the wind that brought the breath of the sand flowers. The voices of the Arabs, not unmusical, though hoarse and appealing, cried out their lovesong, and then the music turned to Invocation and to prayer. The two women listened silently as the night fell, their figures sharply outlined In the beautiful clarity of the «astern night. Julia stood upright. In her r- re riding dress, she was as slender 4 a boy. She remained looking toward the horizon. Immovable, patient, a silent watcher over the uncommunicative waste. "Perhaps.” she thought, "there Is nothing really beyond that line, so fast blotting itself Into night—and yet I seem to see them come!” Madame de la Maine. In the door of her tent, immovuble, her hands clasped around her knees, look affec tionately at the young girl before her. Julia was a delight to her. She was carried away by her, by her frank sim plicity. and drawn to her warm and generous heart. Madame de la Mains bad her own story. She wondered whether ever, for any period of her conventional life, she could have thrown everything aside and stood out with the man »he loved. Julia, standing before her. a dark slim figure in the night—Isolated and alone—recalled the figurehead of a ship. Its face toward heaven, pioneer ing the open seas. • •••••• 'Julia watched. Indeed. On the dnsert there Is the brilliant day, a passionate glow, and the nightfall. They passed the nights sometimes listening for a cry that should hall sn approaching caravan, sometimes hearing the wild cry of the hyenas, or of a passing vul ture on bis horrid flight. Otherwise, until the camp stirred with the dawn and the early prayer.-call sounded "Al lah! Allah! Akbar!" Into the still ness, they were wrapped In complete silence. (TO BE CONTINUED.) Meaning of Yankee. Tlure are several conflicting the ories regarding the origin of the word Yankee The most probable is that it came from a corrupt pronun ciation by the Indians of tbe word English, er Its French from Anglais. Ths term Yankee was originally ap plied only to the natives of the New England states but foreigners have extended It to all the natives of the United States and during the Ameri can Civil war tbe southerners used It as a term of reproach for all the In habitants of the North. Porto Rico Sugar Indust.-/. The Important part played by ths sugar Industry in the material welfare of Porto Rico Is shown by the figures of exports. Out of a total valuation of exports amounting to 143,000,0*9 dur ing the fiscal year ending June 30, 1914, sugar alone constituted over $20,- 009,900. This was the lowest sum real ized for sugar exports in five years. Under normal conditions sugar con stitutes two-thirds tho total value of all oxport«. [ Permanent Styles in Fans There la nothing very new to report In fans, and there hardly need be. for. like fl j were, they suit us as they are. They are medium or small In sis« and composed of the fragile and fair materials we are used to Bilk gauze or lace or both combined make airy backgrounds for flowers painted In festoons and wreaths In miniature, but perfect art. Hpangies, thicker than stars In the sky, sparplo over all. They were never so liberally used Ivory, mother of pearl, or wood, with much carving and picking out In gold or silver paint, form tbe aticka. Even In the least expensive fans there Is an unusual amount of beauti ful decoration The Imitation ivory sticks are quite as beautifully handled aa the genuine, it takes a good judge to tell the difference. Fans of white gauze with medallions and borders of princess lace braid and thickly spangled with tiny silver se quins have proved their captivating qualltloa by heading the list of "best sellers." In the month of roses, when graduates and brides must be ramcra- bcred. thia la the fan that la scattered to all the points of the compass. Fans of black gauze with many spangles put on In a set design and scattered over the surface besides, have proved aa alluring as ever. flmall celluloid fans that may be carried In the handbag are deco rated with gold border« In set figure« or are gay with painted flowera One of these Is a novelty having a small coin carrier at the base of the stick, just large enough to hold dimes Pret ty as they are. none of these fans are expensive Unless one chooses those wiih pearl slicks or having much carv ing. Among tho very cheap fans, such aa sell for twenty five cents or not more than fifty, the Japanese designs offer really good colorings and fas cinating surfaces. Thoy are well made and more than tasteful; they are often fine examples of Japaueso art. JULIA BOTTOMLEY. Knitted Silk Sports Coats. Knitted silk sports coats are not sweaters. True, they can be used for many of tbe purposes for which a sweater Is used, but there Is quite a difference In the garments. Various kinds of knitted silk fabrics are used for the purpose, but, unlike the sweat er. they are lined, and sometime« with a silk strongly contrasting with the outer material. Not infrequently this silk runs over Into cuffs and col lar. The coats are made along loose wrap lines, sometimes belled or sashed. Semi norfolk jackets of knitted silk are very fetching and among the most popular coata In the knitted silk fabrics. About Shoes for the Young People Following in the shoe tracks of thslr elders, children and half grown young people are wearing the best-looking •nd best-made sboea which have fallen to their lot so far. The correct styles for children as to shape are those that follow the shape of the foot, snug enough not to slip at the heel, and a little longer and broader than the feet they are tn clothe, with wide toes, flexible soles and low heels. The matter of shape disposed of, without room for mistake, there Is left a considerable latitude In choice of design and finish. All on the same sensible last, plain, dressy and fancy •hoes have received almost as much attention at the hands of manufactur ers aa those meant for older people— and this is saying a lot. An attractive dress shoe for a child Is shown In the picture, with white kid and patent leather combined In a graceful design. It fastens over the Instep and ankles with cutout straps buttoned over black buttons at the side. The neat machine stitching Is an Important feature in Its flnlih. A flat ribbon bow decorates the toe. For tbe well-<rown miss a pretty boot Is shown with cloth top, patent leather trimming and laced fastening. It la trim In appearance and broader In the toe than It looks. The narrow effect la accomplished by the long point In the tip of patent leather. Tho plain leather sandals made for children’s midsummer wear deserve a good word always. Worn without stockings, they help out the youngsters that are denied the pleasure of running barefoot, and are so easy to put off and on that the little people can In dulge In the joy of getting their feet on the ground occasionally. JULIA BOTTOMLEY. Braid In Millinery, Rervlceable, adaptable braid has been called upon for trimming the newest tailored hats, and some very unique effects have been obtained from Its artistic use. A large chou or rose of folded white silk braid effect ively trims a flno white leghorn. A three cornered dark brown mllan has dangling at one side a red apple of soutache braid alluring enough to tempt any modern daughter of Eve. Wide cotton braid with colored bor ders band the sports hats of panasna, silk and peanut straw. Watch tho braid counters for choice bits if you wish a new hat trimming.
