Origin of the Slavs,
The Slavs belong to the "Indo-European"
race, although it Is a ques
tion these days as to whether the
Aryans, as the race Is sometimes
called, had their original home In
Asia (around the Caspian) or in Eu
rope. At any rate, the Slavs appear
In Europe contemporaneously with the
other Indo-European families to which
they are related.

Monument Shone as Ghost
"Ise seed dat ghost dar ev'ry night
fob. a week," declared Henry W.
Locksmith, a local colored man, as
he stood with chattering teeth on
North Hanover street, with his eyes
riveted on a white object in Potts-
town cemetery. Henry was frightened
sure, and Robert C. Hawk, a well
known printer, to whom he had told
his story, saw, too, the ghostly figure.
Hawk, however, ridiculed the idea
of such things, and the colored man
became angry, but finally agreed to
accompany him into the cemetery.
The "ghost" never moved, and this
caused Locksmith to tote along very
slowly behind. Hawk braced him up
with words of encouragement, and
when they came close to the "thing In
white" they found that it was a highly
polished granite monument upon
which the reflection from a distant
arc electric- light had played and
made it seem pure white. Pottstown

(Copyright, 1915, by the MeClure Newspa
Mr. JaBon Gill was a farmer's hired
man, and twenty-two years old. The
song of the turtle dove hadn't yet en
tered his heart. When a young man,
no matter how strong he is, puts in
from fourteen to sixteen hours per
day at farm work he is glad enough
go to bed and to sleep without
losing time over thoughts of Cupid.
Jason Gill's time was coming, how
ever. Indeed, it was to come within
an hour from the time he was found
greasing his boots at the kitchen door
on a Sunday morning.
"Goin" somewhere?" queried the
"I thought I'd go down to the river
and see if the boys was ketching any
'Then as you have got to go past
Morton's keep your eyes peeled."
"Her gal Susie got home the other
day. You never saw her. She has
been livin' with her uncle for the last
six months. She used to spend half
her time hangin' over the gate look-
in' for agents and peddlers, but mebbe
she has improved.''
"Well, I shan't bite her," laughed
Jason as he set out; and long enough
before he got there he saw a female
figure at the gate.
"That's probably the gal," he
mused. "If she's good lookln' I'll look
twice at her as I go past. If she's
aort o' homely I'll just give one glance
out of the corner of my eye."
The girl was looking straight at
him for the last 20 rods, and as he
began-to slow down and step softly
she said: "Hadn't you better stop and
"Yes, I guess I will," was the reply.
"You are Susie who got home the

but mother never has. Why haven t
you been in?"
"No gals here."
"But there's going to be one here
"Then I'll be coming."
"Pa says he thinks your name Is
Monson Pill, but isn't sure."
Oh, thunder! Why, it's Jason
That's just pa, all over. I think
the name Jason Gill is one of the
sweetest names I ever heard. I used
to think Claude d'Artagan was a sweet
name, but it sounds mushy beside
yours. Do you like my name?
"I dote on It."
"Then come in and meet mother
and stay to dinner."
Jason didn't go to the river, but the
couple sat on the veranda and talked
the rest of the day. When he was
ready to start for home to do the
milking, he said: "Susie, I've been
"Kinder what about, Jason?" she
Hadn t we orter say we was en
"Why, yes, I guess so."
And so when Jason went plowing

meadows that lined the highway he
had seen, admired, loved and become
And as Susie helped her mother
clear the dishes off the table, accom
panted by a song and a whistle, she
felt that the girl who never hung over
the front gate was missing golden
Up among the swagger set it would
have taken from six months to a year
to accomplish what they had in halt
a day, and who could say that one
couple would be any happier than the
The farmer's wife saw a different
look about Jason when he got home.
"You have seen Susie Morton!"
"You bet!" was the reply.
"And you think she is cute?"
"Cuter than small apples."
"And," continued the woman, "I'll
bet you fall in love with her In a
'Say, Mrs. Wilkins, we have been
engaged at least forty minutes.'
When the cows had been milked
and the stock fed Jason Leaded down
the road for Morton's again. He didn't
get Bight of Susie, but he felt better
for hanging around the gate for half
In the field next day Farmer Wil
kins stopped his work- to ask:
Jason, why in thunder do you want
to fall in love?"
"To see how it feels.'"
"And will you marry?"
"But wh;t on?"
"Love and ambition and all that.
The farmer knocked three or four
potato bugs oS a vine, and then'
looked at Jason. "You are about as
big a fool as they make 'em!"
Jason's bedroom window looked to
ward Morton's and Susie's window
looked out toward Wilkins'. Each
spent at least an hour at his or her
window gazing in the opposite dlrec-
tion and fondly Imagining they
could see the lovellght in each oth
er's eyes, though there were three
orchards, two barns and seven hay
stacks between. Jason would have
gone to renew his vows of constancy
every evening had not someone
thrown clubs at him If he came over
three time a week.
It Jason bad been a clubman and
Susie a swagger young lady they
would have had their "tiffs.' As It
was, they never had a misunderstand
ing. The parents of the girt knew
that Jason was a steady, hard-work
ing young man, and, though they ar
gued that Susie might do better, they
did not fairly oppose her.
And on his sparking evenings,
when he was ready to go, the conver
sation would drift around to: "And,
Susie, you hain't sorry I come along
that day, are you?"
"Indeed, I hain't, Jason."
And I bless the hour that I found
you at the gate. Had you any idea
you was going to fall in love with
"Kinder ot an Idea kinder. Did
you think you might fall in love with
'I knew I should."
When seven months had passed
away Mrs. Morton said to her daugh
ter: "Didn't you tell me months and
months ago that that bump on a log
had aBked you to marry him?"
Yes, the first day we met, was
"And when is the marriage day?'
'Why, mother, we haven't got to
"Well, you had better be a-glttin'
to it. A love match gets musty it left
around a year or so."
When Jason was told of this he
answered with a half groan: "Why,
If I Bhould lose you, you know
should hang myself to a tree!"
"And I should hunt out the same
tree and dangle beside you!"
Another six months went past, and
then Mr. Morton took Jason around
behind the barn and said: "It's a year
now since you began coming to my
Yes, about a year," was the reply,
"And are you going to marry Susie,
or are you wasting her time?"
Why, we are going to get marrieu,
'Pretty soon, I guess."
"But why not this week?"
'Well, we'll see about it."
"If you don't you needn't
around here any more."
But, Mr. Morton, I love Susie so
much," was protested.
And when he went into the house
and demanded certain answers
Those who have had cakes ruined by jarring the
stove, slamming the oven door or a heavy footstep, may
have wondered how the dining car chef can turn out such
marvelous biscuits, hot breads and pastry when his oven
is being incessantly jarred and jolted and shaken by the
motion of the train.
To get pastry to raise and stay raised under these con
ditions, a baking powder must be used that continues to give off
Its leavening gas that sustains the raise until the dough is
Dining Car Chefs have found a baking powder exactly suited
to their needs in K C and you will find it just as well suited to
your requirements. K C is really a blend of two baking powders,
one active as soon as moistened, the other requiring both mois

how moist and rich you make your cake, K C Baking Powder will

Susie she replied: "I think we'd
have been married long ago if
wasn't so nice to sit up with a beau
three times a week."
The subject was dropped there, and
for the next year the young folks
went right on as before, and the
girl's parents didn't know what to do
with a young man that courted the
way Jason did. Half a dozen times
during the year Mr. Morton spat on
his hands and started to make his
threat good, but his wife dissuaded
"But what in thunder does the fel
ler mean?" he demanded.
"And Susie, too?" she queried.
She's as much to blame as he is,
Well, it shall be settled next Sun
day." And thereupon they went into
committee ot the whole to arrange
Each and every Sunday Jason
headed for Morton's as soon as he
got his chores done up, and remained
all day. On a particular Sunday be
was there as usual, and he and Susie
were seated In the orchard when
they were called in. It was to find
the Baptist preacher and Mr. and Mrs.
Wilkins there, while all had their Sun
day clothes on.
Is this the happy couple?" asked
the minister as he rose up.
'It is," replied Mr. Morton.
'Why, yes," said Jason, "we are
happier than two clams. What Is go
ing to happen here?"
'There is to be a marriage, I be
lieve." replied the minister. "Am I
right, my friends?"
And they said he was, and they
took hold ot the ceremony and rushed
it to the most successful conclusion.
When the bewildered victims discov
ered what had happened, Susie cried
out: "Oh, Jason, they have gone
and married us, and you can't come
sparkin' any more!"
"And we'll never crack any more
hickory nuts or eat popcorn to
gether," added Jason.
But the day soon came that the hus.
band said for both: "Why, darn it, if
