- JrgSj That's what a Spreader will do if
If you hava'125 loads of manure to spread and yon are going to plant 25 acres'of corn or wheat,
or have a 25 acre meadow We will tell 70a how you can increase the value of your crop this year
from $4.00 to S8.00 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 up by actual experiments extending over
a period of 18 years. To give yon an idea of what this book contains, we show results of experi
ments made with varioos 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 $8.00 per acre.
This Book will be sent free to anyone writing us. It is worth $100.00 to you, bat it won't cost
yon a cent. If it doesn't do you any good, it won't do you any harm. Write ni now and let us mail
it to you. It is brimming full of valuable information.

nie and I live you shall live, until you

No wonder these girls thought there
was.no other man in the. world like,
"dad. Their delightful home was
Idyllic in it happiness, their only sor
row that Brand should be away two
months out of three on account of the
pursuit in which he passed his hours
of leisure" during recent years.
Neither dared" to look at the other.;
They could not trust themselves even
to speak. There was relief In action,'
for thought was torture.
The docile Daisy steadily forged
through the waves.'' The spasmodic
clang of -the bell came more clearly
each minute. Pollard, kneeling in the
bows, peered into the gloom of .the
swirling snow. He listened eagerly to
the bell. With right hand or left he
motioned to Constance to bring the
boat's head nearer to the wind or per
mit the sail to fill out a little more. '
Enid, ready to cast the canvas loose
at the first hint of danger, consulted
her watch frequently. , At last she
cried: . -
"Twenty minuses, Ben."
What a relief it was to hear her own
voice. The tension was becoming un
bearable.' . "Right y' are, missy. No need to
slack off yet.. 'Tes clearin' a bit We'm
heave to alongside the rock in less'n
no time." .....
The fisherman was right. His train
ed senses perceived a distinct diminu
tion in the volume of snow. Soott they
could see fifty, a hundred,' two hundred
yards, ahead. CkL the starboard quarter
they caught a confused rushing noise,'
like the subdued murmur of a mill
race. The tide had covered , the rock. - ';
"Luff, et Is!" roared Ben suddenly.'
"Steady. now!'' ' ' ' "
' Out , of the blurred . vista a ghostly
column rose in' " front. ' Smooth and
cheer. Svere its granite walls, with dark
little casements shbwiiig black in the
weird, light. ' The boat iushed past the
Trinity mooring buoy. She held on un
'til thev heard the seaf breakinsr.'
"Loweif away!" cried Ben, and the
yard fell with a sharp rattle that show
ed how. thoroughly Enid had laid to
heart Pollard's tuition. -
Constance brought the Daisy round
In a wide curve, and Ben got out the
oars to keep her from being dashed
against the reef.
Enid's eyes were turned toward the
gallery beneath the lantern.
"Lighthouse ahoy!" she screamed in
a voice high pitched with emotion.
There was no answering clang of the
door leading from .the room on a level
with the balcony. Not often had the
girls visited the rock, but they knew
that thi3 was the first sign they might
expect of their arrival being noted if
there were no watchers pacing the
"Help us, Ben," cried Constance, and
their united shouts might be heard a
mile away in the prevailing stillness.
A window halfway up the tower was
opened. A man's head and shoulders
'Danu me. but tTiev're two plucky 'una."
It was "Stephen Brand!
"Thank God!" murmured Constance.
Enid, on whose sensitive soul the
storm, the signal, the hissing rush of
the boat through the waves, had cast
a spell of Indefinite terror, bit her lip
to restrain her tears.
Brand gave a glance of amazement
at the three uplifted faces, but this
was no time for surprise or question. '
"J am coming down," he shouted.
Providence must have sent you at
this moment." '
. He vanished.
"What can It be?" said Constance,
outwardly calm now in the assurance
that her father was safe.
"Must ha' bin a accident," said Ben.
That signal means 'Bring a doctor.
An' there ain't a blessed tug In harbor,
nor won't be till the tide makes." '
That will mean delay," cried Enid. ;
"Five or six boors at least, missy."

He had no greeting for them, nor
words of astonishment.
"When will the tug reach here, Ben?"
The fisherman told him the opinion
he had formed.
"Then you girls must come and' help
me. Jackson scalded his hands and
arms in the kitchen; and Bates was
hurrying to tie storeroom for oil and
whitening when he slipped on the
stairs and broke his leg. We must get
them both ashore. Ben, you can take
"Aye, aye, sir."
"Now, Constance, you first Hold
tight and stand in the skip. Your boat
cannot come near the rock."
He swung the derrick into place and
began to work the windlass. Con

the excited Enid:
"Let us divide the parcels and take
"Oh, I should have forgotten all
about them," said Enid, stooping to
empty the lockers.
Constance, without flickering an eye
lid, stepped into the strong basket with
its iron hoops and, having arranged
some of the plethoric paper bags at her
feet, told her father to "hoist away."
She arrived safely. Enid followed
her, with equal sang froid, though a
lift of forty odd feet while standing In
k skip and clinging to a rope is not an
"Dang me," said Ben, as Enid, too,
was swung into the lighthouse, "but
they're two plucky 'uns."
. The great bell tolled away, though
the.pnow had changed to sleet, and the
heights beyond the Land's End were
,dimly visible; so. its warning note was
no longer needed. .The sky above was
clearing. A luminous haze spreading
over the- waters heralded -the return of
'the&un.' But the wind was bitterly
cold; the -fisherman watching the open
door,' "with- one eye on the sea lest an
, adventurous- wave should, sweep the
Daisy against. the rock; murmured to
himself: . - ; .-
"'Tes a good job the wind's I' the
norfard. 'This sort o' thing's a weather
breeder or my name ain't Ben Pol
lard." ' ' - - ..
. And that was how Enid came back
tb'the Gulf Rock to enter upon the sec
ond great epoch of her life.
. Once before had the reef taken her
to its rough heart and fended her from
peril. Would it shield her again res
cue her from the graver danger whose
shadow even now loomed out of the

Itself speed, rushes swiftly onward
past familiar landmarks of custom and

again meandering through new plains
of wider horizon.
Such a perilous passage can never be
foreseen. The rapids may begin where
the trees are highest and the meadows
most luxuriant. No warning is given,
The Increased pace of events is pleas

not only survive the ordeal, but there
by fit themselves for more daring ex
ploits, more soul stirring adventures.
When the two girls stood with Ste
phen Brand in the narrow entrance to
the lighthouse, the gravity of their
bright young faces was due solely to
the fact that their father had announc
ed the serious accidents which had be
fallen his assistants. No secret moni
tor whispered that fate in her bold and
merciless dramatic action had roughly
removed two characters from the stage
to clear it for more striking events.
Not once In twenty years has it hap
pened that two out of the three keep
ers maintained on a rock station with
in signaling distance of the shore have
become incapacitated for duty on the
same day. The thiag was so bewilder
ingly sudden, the arrival of Constance
and Enid on the scene so timely and
unexpected, that Brand, a philosopher
of ready decision in most affairs of
life, was at a loss what to do for the
best now that help, of a sort un
dreamed of, was at hand.
The case of Jackson, who was scald

sufferer to the boat.
But Bates' affair was different. He
lay almost where he had fallen. Brand
had only lifted him Into the'storeroom
from tbr foot of the stairs, placing- a
pillow beneath his head, and appealing
both to him and to Jaekson to endure

now was one of Indarment. Was it bet

endeavor to transfer Bates to the boat?
He consulted Ben Pollard again. The
girls were already climbing the steep
stairs to sympathize with and tend to
the injured men. s
"Do you think it will blow harder.
Ben, when the tide turns?" he asked.
The old fellow seemed to regard the
question as n:ot interesting and novel.

Pollard grinned reassuringly.

So they settled it that way, all so

less telegraphy" is the term, as one
says "by mail."
A whole drama was flowing over a
curve of the earth at that moment, but
the , Marconi station was invisible.
There was no expert in telepathic sen
sation present to tell Brand and the
fisherman that their commonplace
words covered a magic code,
Jackson, white and mute, was lower

agony amid the cushions aft.. When

stiff dose of brandy, was carried with

of remonstrances, he helped to steady
the cot and adjust if amidships clear
of the sail.
"Well done, Artie," said Brand's
clear voice. ' '
"Oh, brave!" murmured Enid.
"We will visit you every day at the
hospital," sang out Constance.
Jackson smiled yes, smiled though
his bandaged arms quivered and the
seared nerves of his hands throbbed
excruciatingly. Speak aloud he could

Pollard, with a soul as gnarled as his
body, yet had a glimpse of higher
things when he muttered:
"D'ye think ye can hold her, mate,
whiles I hoist the cloth?"
Jackson nodded. The request was a
compliment, a recognition. He sat
down and hooked the tiller between
arm and ribs. Ben hauled with a will.
The Daisy, as If she were glad to es

animation. The watchers from the
lighthouse saw Ben relieve the steers

behind his back. Then Brand closed
the iron doors, and the three were left
in dim obscurity.
They climbed nearly a hundred feet
of stairways and emerged on to the
cornice balcony after Brand had stop
