If you hre"l2S loads of manure to spread and you are going to plant 23 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
front $4.00 to $8.00 per acre or more than enough to pay for a spreader. We issue a 48-page book
entitled "Practical. Experience With Barnyard Manures." which explains the whole situation.
Our Plan is not a theory. It is an actual fact, backed op 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 84.80 per acre. Ojj
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 $8.00 per acre.
This Book will be sent free to anyone writing ns. It is worth $100.00 to yon. bat it won't cost
you a cent. If it doesn't do you any good, it won't do yon any harm. Write us now and let us mail
it to yon. It is brimming full of valuable information.

'WlftT the rocking of the boat the foul
bilge water washed around the child's
limbs and back. Instinct alone had
6aved it from drowning. Perhaps dur
ing the first hours of vigor after aban
donment the little one might have roll
ed over in infantile search for food and
human tendance, but the rush of salt
water into eyes and mouth must have
driven the tiny sufferer to seek instant
ly the only position in which life was
So far as the man could judge in a
first hasty glance, the child's clothing
was of excellent quality. Yet he gave
slight heed to such considerations. :
Jim was the father of three lusty s
youngsters who were snugly in bed in j
Penzance, and the sight of this f or- j
lorn sea waif made his eyes misty. ,
He reached down, unpinned the
blanket, which was secured with a
brooch, and lifted the infant out of Its
unpleasing environment. It was pite
ous to see the way In which the shrunk- .
en hands at once strove to clasp his
wrists, though they were all too feeble .i
to achieve , more than a gentle clutch
which relaxed almost as soon as the
effort was made.
Jones, also a husband and father, be
thought him when he. reached the
storeroom; hence when the windlass
lowered a basket there was not only
a supply of brandy within, but also a
bottle of fresh milk, which reached the
Gulf Rock, by arrangement with a fish
erman, whenever weather permitted.
Jim handed the jug to his exhausted
"Here, cap'n," he said cheerfully.
"Take a couple of mouthfuls of this.
If 11 warm the cockles of your. heart.
An' the sooner you shin up the ladder
and get them soaked rags off you the
better. Can you manage? ..It!s a near
thing for the kid, if not too late now."
Brand needed no second bidding.
He did not wish to collapse utterly,
and, the soft. breeze, rendered chilly by
his wet garments,-" had . ..revived tlm,
The resourceful sailor did not- at
tempt the f oolisS process of pouring
even the smallest quantity of milk Into
the baby's mouth. He produced a hand
kerchief, steeped a. twisted corner In
the milk and placed it between the
parched, salt blackened lips.1 "
This rough expedient for a ' feeding
bottle served admirably. -''The child's
eagerness to gulp in the: life giving fluid
was only matched by the tender care
of the sailor in his efforts to appease
Its ravenous hunger.
- He was so Intent on this urgent task
that for a little while he paid no heed
to Brand. Jones, forty feet overhead,
took the keenest interest in the baby's
nurture. ' -' '
"Mind you don't let it suck .the hand
kerchief into Its little throat," he, cried.
"Not too much, Jim. It's on'y a young
'un. 'Half mil".:, half water an' a lump
of sugar,' ciy missus says. Pore little
dear! However did it come to live,
when that man must ha' been dead for
days? Now, Jim, slow an' sure is the
motter. S'pose you shove It Into the
basket an" lot me hoist it up here. A
warm bath an' . a blanket is the next
best thing to milk an' water."
"All right, skipper. Just hold oa a
bit She's doin' fine."
"Is It a he or a she?"
"I dunno. But I guess it's a gal by
The baby, in the sheer joy of living
again, uttered a gurgling cry, a com
pound of milk, happiness and pain.
"There! I told you!" shouted Jones
angrily. "You think every kid is ft
hardy young savage like your own.
You're overdoin' it, I say.'.'
"Overdoin' wot?" demanded the sail
or. "You don't know who you're talkin
to. Why, when, I was on the West
Coast I reared two week-old monkeys
Soon these firm friends would have
quarreled so unbounded was their
anxiety to rescue the fluttering exist
ence of the tiny atom of humanity so
miraculously snatched from the perils
of tho sea.
But Stephen Brand's dominant per
sonality was rapidly recovering its nor
"Jim," he said, "Mr. Jones is right.
The child must be made comfortable.
Her skin is raw and her eyes sore with
Inflammation. The little food she has
already obtained will suffice for a few
minutes. Send her up."

when supplies were temporarily with
held, and Jones was too pleased that
his opinion should be supported by
Brand to give another thought to his
subordinate's outburst -
"Now, back up to the rock," said
Brand. 4I will dress and rejoin you
quickly.' The boat must be thoroughly
examined and swabbed out. Jones
will signal for help. Meanwhile you
might moor her tightly. When the tide
falls she will be left high and dry
The sailor's momentary annoyance
fled. There was much to be done, and
no time should be wasted In disputes
concerning baby culture.
"Sure you won't slip?" he asked as
Stephen caught 'hold of the ladder.
"No, no. It was not fatigue, but
sickness which overcame me. The
brandy has settled that."
Up he went, as though returning
from his customary morning dip. . '
"By jingo, he's a -plucky 'un," mur
mured Jim admiringly. "He ought to
be skipper of a battleship Instead Of
housemaid of a rock light Dash them
sea crows! I do hate 'em!"
He seized an oar and lunged so hard
and true at a cormorant which was In
vestigating the shark's liver that .he
knocked the bird a yard through the
air. Discomfited, it retired, with a
scream. Its companion darted to the
vacant site and pecked industriously.
The neighborhood of the rock was now
alive with sea gulls. In the water
many varieties of finny shapes were
darting to and fro in great excitement.
"They'd keep me busy," he growled.
"When all's said an' done, it's their
nater, an' they can't help it."
Unconscious that he had stated the
primordial thesis, he left the foragers
alone. Hauling the sail out of the wa
ter, he discovered that the stern board
was missing, broken off probably when
the mast fell. His trained scrutiny
soon solved . a. puzzle suggested by the
statue of the cordage. ' Under ordinary
conditions the upper part of the mast
would either have carried the sail clean
away with it or be found acting as a
sort of sea anchor at a short distance
from the boat
But it had gone altogether, and the
strands ;of the sail rope were bitten,
not torn, asunder. The shark had
striven to pull the boat under by tug
ging ;at the wreckage.
Having made the canvas shipshape,
Jim settled the next pressing question
by seizing an empty tin and sluicing
the fore part Then he passed a rope
under the after thwart and reeved It
through a ringbolt in a rock placed
there . for mooring purposes ; In very
calm weather like the present. -
When the Trinity tender paid her
monthly visit to the lighthouse she was
moored to a buoy three cable lengths
away to the northwest If there was
the least suspicion of a sea over the
reef it was Indeed a ticklish task land
ing or embarking stores and men.
Closehauled, the boat would fill for
ward, as the tide dropped. This was
matterless. By that time all her mov
able contents she appeared to have
plenty of tinned meat and biscuits
aboard, but no water would be re
moved to the storeroom.
The sailor was sorting the packages
wonderin;; what queer story of the
deep would be forthcoming when the
recent history of the rescued child was
ascertained when Brand hailed him.
"Look out there, Jim. I am lowering
The weapon was duly delivered.
"What's the ax for, cap'n?" was the
"I want to chop out that shark's
teeth. They will serve as mementos
for the girl if she grows up, which is
likely, judging by the way she Is yell

"Wot's he a-doin' of?" came the sharp
"Giving her a bath, and excellently
well too. He is evidently quite domes
ticated." "If that means "under Mrs. J.'s
thumb,' you're right cap'n. They tell
me that when he's ashore"
"Jim, the first time I met you you
were wheeling a perambulator. Now,
load the skip and I will haul in."
They worked in silence a few min
utes. Brand descended, and a few
well placed cuts relieved the man eater
of the serrated rows used to such seri
ous purpose in life that he had attained
a length of nearly twelve feet Set

shape ominously suggestive of the j

"It is a good thing," . said Brand,
calmly hewing at the huge jaws, "that
nature did not build the Careharodon

ligator. If this big fellow's sharp em
broidery were not situated so close to
his stomach he would have made a

cthjer, ignoring for. ilid nonce what he
termed "some of the cap'n's jawbreak
ers." "Yes. It is the only dangerous
species found go far north.
"His teeth are like so many fixed
bayonets. Of course you would like to
keep 'em, but he would look fine in a
museum. Plenty of folk in Penzance,
especially visitors, would pay a bob
a head to see him."
Brand paused in his labor.
"Listen, Jim," he said earnestly. "I
want .both you and Jones to oblige me
by saying nothing about the shark.
Please do not mention my connection
with the affair in any way. The story
will get into the newspapers as it is.
The additional sensation of the fight
would send reporters here by the score.
I don't wish that to occur."
"Do you mean to say" .
"Mr. Jones will report the picking up
of the boat and the finding of the baby.
together with the necessary burial of
a man unknown"
. "What sort of a chap was he?" In
"I I don't know a sailor that is all
I can tell you. He must have been
dead several days."
"Then how In the world did that
baby keep alive?"
"I have been thinking over that prob
lem. I imagine that, in the first place,
there was a survivor, who disappeared
since the death of the poor devil out
there." He pointed to the sea. "This
person, whether man or woman, looked
after the child until madness came,
caused by drinking salt water. The
next step is suicide. The little one,
left living, fell Into the bilge created
by the shipping of a sea and adopted,
by the mercy of Providence, a method
of avoiding death from thirst which
ought to be more widely appreciated
than it is. She absorbed water through
the pores of the skin, which rejected
the salty elements and took in only
those parts of the compound needed by
the blood. You follow me?"
"Quite. It's a slap-up idea."
"It is not new.- It occurred to a
ship's captain who was compelled- to
navigate . his . passengers and crew a
thousand miles, in open boats across
the Indian ocean as the result of a
fire at sea. Well, the child was well
nourished,, in all likelihood,' before the
accident happened which set her adrift
"on the Atlantic. She may have lost
a few pounds In weight, but star
vation is a slow affair, and her plump
ness saved her life In that , respect
Most certainly she would have died
today, and even yet she is In great
danger. Her pulse is very weak, and
care must be taken not to stimu
late the action of the heart too rap
idly." When Brand spoke in this way Jim
Spence.was far too , wary to ask per
sonal . questions. Sometimes, in the
early days of their acquaintance, he
had sought to pin his friend with clum
sy logic to some admission as to his
past life. The only result he achieved
was to seal the other., man's lips for
days so far as reminiscences were con
cerucnl. . . '' " '

Yet go helpful was he, so entertaining

In private they discussed him often,
and a common agreement was made
that his wish to remain incognito
should be respected. Their nickname,
"the cap'n," was a tacit admission of
his higher social rank. They feared
lest inquisitiveness should drive him
from their midst and one supernumer
ary, who heard from the cook of the
Trinity tender that Brand was the
nephew of a baronet, was roughly bid
den to "close his rat trap, or he might
catch something he couldn't eat."
So Jim now contented himself by re
marking dolefully that had his advice
been taken "the bloomin' kid would be
well on her way back .to the Scilly
"You must not say that," was the
grave response. "These things are de
termined by a higher power than man's
intelligence. Think how the seeming
accident of a fallen sail saved the child
from the cormorants and other birds;
how a chance sea fell into the boat and
kept her alive; how mere idle curiosity
on my part impelled me to swim out
and investigate matters."
"That's your way of puttin' it," Jim
was forced to say. "You knew quite
