If you hava'125 loads of manure to spread asd you are goinr to plant 25 acres of corn or wheat,
or have a 25 acre meadow we will tell you how you can increase the value of your crop this year
from 14.00 to $8.00 per acre or more than enough to pay for a spreader. We issue, a 48-paee book
entitled "Practical Experience With Barnyard Manures," which explains the whole situation.
Our Plan, is not a theory. It is an actual fact, backed up by actual experiments extending over
a period of 18 years. To give you an idea of what this book contains, we show results of experi
ments made with various crops where 5 loads of manure were spread per acre by the old method,
and 5 loads by the new method, on corn ground. The latter shows a gain of $4.80 per acre. On
another field and in another state, it shows a gain of $5.60 per acre, and on a clover and timothy
meadow, a gain of 18.00 per acre.
This Book will be sent tree to anyone writing us. It is worth f 100.00 to yon, bnt it won't cost
yon a cent. If it doesn't do you any good, it won't do yon any harm. Write ns now and let us mail
it to yon. It is brimming full of valuable information.

'For a little while they stood together
In silence. Jim suddenly quitted bis

He poised it with the precision of a ;
Bisley marksman and began to speak
again jerkily: I

vast area of sea. Excepting the ap-;

Jim. who trusted to the head keep

to Leander, whom he hazily associated
with Captain Webb made no rejoinder.
He focused the telescope again, gave
a moment's scrutiny to the steamer

stillness of the morning was solemn.

experienced an anxious watch. Not for
an instant could he forego attendance
on the lamp. Owing to the sleet it was
necessary to keep the light at full pres

the tanks by weights weighing half a
ton, must flow copiously over the brass

of a Turkish bath and the lower part j
of his body chilled to the bone.
He thought nothing or it at tne time.
This was duty. But at Intervals
throughout the rest of his life the sci
atic nerve would remind him of that
lonely watch. This morning he was
convalescent after a painful immobility
of two days.
Watching the boat, Jim centered her
in the telescopic field and looked anx
iovisly for a sharp arrow shaped ripple
on the surface of the sea. The breeze
which had vanquished the fog now
kissed the smiling water into dimples,
and his keen sight was perplexed by
the myriad wavelets.
Each minute the condition of affairs
on. board became more defined. Be
neath some oars ranged along the star
board side he could" see several tins,
suela a,s contain biscuits and compress
ed beef. The shapeless mass in the
bows puzzled him. It was partly cov
ered with broken planks from the dam
aged portion of the upper works, and
it might be a jib sail fallen there when
the mast broke. The birds were busy
and excited. He did not like that.
Nearly half an hour passed. The
Princess Boyal, a fine vessel of yacht
like proportions, sprinting for the aft
ernoon train, was about eight miles
away, sou' west by west. According to
present indications, steamer and dere
lict would be abreast of the Gulf Rock
light simultaneously, but the big ship,
of course, would give a wide- berth to
a rock strewn shoal.
At last the lighthousff keeper heard
ascending footsteps. This was not
Stephen Brand, but Jones. Jim, whose
rare irritated moods found safety in
stolid silence, neither spoke nor looked
around when his chief joined him, bin
oculars, in hand..
