diiv before ho roBl.l write what he in
tended tot SiipKiHe Himther aeoond of
life wonld havn alt.-nxl all tliinifxl Why
did not the dcfcimo think of that?
Axtray Marwlen qnaiTi'led with Jiwiah
and left him. A third HTon entered,
and that pcrxnn wax tho one who com
inittod the deed. J.wiah Marxden, living
and alone, remenilxTeil Soinetliiii
warned him that Axtray wonl.i ho ac
cnxe.1, and ho wroto what ho intend.'.l
Hl.ii.ild prove liix innocence- Noouo can
any what were tho exact words ho in

after the word 'xtraii),'o, ' the word in
the writing of whicu, and Ix-foro lie
could complete it death overtook him
and hix very handwriting condemned
the man whom he had tried to save.
The more Darrent thought the more
moody IxH-ame hix reflections. Wax it
pnxsil.Ie he had blundered f Wax it pos-
Hil.lt. that the man now nnder xentei.ee
of death wax only the victim of a xeri.-x
of circumstantial incidents that ho
had so cleverly put together? He turned
to n nihil the Vreakfaxt that he had neg
lected, but all inclination for food had
vanished, and he pushed his pinto aside
and stared ont of tho window again,
and, ax ho gazed, there continually
dinned in hix ears one sentence: "Sup
pone you've li-n mistaken I pappose
yon'vo lieen mistaken I"
The reM'tit,iou grew ximply madden
ing. He con Id bear it no longer; he
wonld retext every theory; he wonl.i
retrace his steps, go right back to the
Ix-ginning, follow every clew from a
different xtan.lpoint mid see where it
led him see if there was anything, no
matter how minute,, that he. had over
looked. Ho turned to tho nowspaier
once more, and as ho glanced down the
columns a chess diagram caught his
eye, the uhu.i1 weekly problem, "White
to play and mate in two moves. " In an
instunt Dam-Ufa mind was alert on a
8o easy had lieen the trail that hn had
followed, ho clearly had it pointnl to
the guilt of Aidray Marsdcu, that he
ha.l quite overlooked tho rohlx-ry of the
chessmen. They had seemed to have no
real connection with the actual murder,
and they had slippi-d from his memory.
Nov, and it came forcibly back to him,
he had better try to trace them and find
what bearing they had nix.n the caso.
He recnllixl how he had bnilt np a
theory that if he conld only find thnae
rhnxsmen he wonld bo very near achiev
ing mate njMin the murderer's game.
H'hat step should ho take nowt Ho
tomchow conld not dixnbnae hix mind
of tho nneaxy feeling that had poxsi-SHed
it that porhaiw he had put the hemp
round an innocent man's neck, and in
a few weeks' time, nulexx ho proved
himself to havo been wrong, to have
followed a bad theory to a falxo end,
the noose might lx drawn and Astray
llarsilen gono beyond recalL
He went np stairs to hix room and
took from hix bag tho odd pawn and
tU piece of tissue paper containing the
chip of ivory, his new clowx.
It was a big, manly tank Darrent wax
going to enter nptin, because if he
proved that the conclusions he had al
ready nrrived at were false and that nil
along hn had followed a false scent he
wrote for himself and hix lauded aluliiy
an awful denunciation. If, on the other
hand, he only confirmed tt s first theory
there wax nothing further to go on
Working for beyond self xatisfacti-ei
nrf --'ntinnt. Wax it worth while,
after all J be (Hindered. Why not let
things take their course?
He stepped out into tho str4t and
paused, irresolute, for a few momenta.
Then, snddi-nly tucking np hix mind,
he walkrx), rfipidjy to the railway sta

step he mifet pnrsne was to ascertain
from Kthel Kitii;st.n anything he conld
ax to the r.-ul relationship between
Astray llrslen ami the mnr.lered man
and. fnr'her. what were the gronn.ls
pon wlc. h old Marxden had forl.iilden
the marr age of Astray with her. Per
haps iu that very refusal of consent to
the nlliai ce there might bo something
that wonld l.-rvl him on a fresh scent,
.met ha) f thrtt would dull or satisfy
that aching that had taken possession
M his mind, that w.ld allav tho
hannting fear that perhaiw. ntfrTMj
ho was wrong. 4

How, wondered Darrent, as he stood
awaiting nn answer e his knock,
would he rni.lehe woman who had tak-
n that nnr. hearsed part in the dra-
ne at the trial ? Wonld she be
prostrated with grief and refuse to seo

him for having st.-adfaHtlv imrsne.1
and wnvjj-t-sen. she loved, the
man whonjV.e U-lieved to he innocent
and whoniTir'O' were bnt free, she had
sworn lsfore all men she would marry?
While Dsirent turned these posxihili
tie over In his mind thed.n was
op-ned by the girl herxelf, who conld
ill conceal a start of astonishment aa he
raised his hat.

"And yet it is due to you, atid yon

Darrent took a ernt IxHe Kril.l
drew from hix jiocket the paper that he
had been reading that nxjrnina and aiilil
"Misx Kingston, when Antray MalH-di-n
asked you in court if yon believed
him guilty and yon answered 'No;'
when ho asked yon if yon wonld marry
him if ho were free ami yon answered
'Yus, ' it for the moment lessened my
belief in his guilt, but when I again re
viewed nil the facts that shadowy feel
ing of donl.t vanished, and I was na
sure ax ever of that guilt I slept well

dreams tortnring me that I might hove

bnt this morning I felt doprcsxod, and
when I ojM-ned this paper, ont of your

Ho placed the paper on the table an &
pointed to the editorial with tho vi

never been onr lot to Witnese, "
For some moments Ethel Kingston
conld scarcely mast.-r he emotion ax
she gazed at the printed lines, and.
sinking back into her scat, she covered
her face with her handx.
Darrent wait-d nntil alio ha1) in at.tne

then, speaking very quietly, aaid:
"Miss Kingston, I have already told

The past year, with its unusual
climatic conditions, have been) mark
ed by a signal m gleet of tillage op
erations In the orchards of the state,
One result ot this has Ixt ii the form
alion of an extra large amount of
fruit wqjhI and buds, aud under 'ir.li
nry aoudilions, neil i-pring there
1'ill set a very ujuch greater amount
of fruit than will Ix best lor boih the
interest ol the tree and tho orchard-
is!. The orchard should receive
judiciolx, yts, a vigeroux pruning
litis inter, 1.) thi' end that liberal
thinning of fruit spurs shall be had,
otherwise the more expensive work
of li&nd thiuriing must b done or
else there will be produced a mass of
small inferior fruit for which no mar
get can lie found, and ax too often oc
curx, the larger pa't of the crop be
comaf a waate.
Now ix the time to make a thor
ough examiaation of the trees; study
the varioux systems of pruning and
the ends I hey are sought to reach.
W'ach the insect and fungous foes
and the climatic e fleets upon the fruit
and foliage) buds, and with the open
ing of spring be prepared to give the
orchard vigerous but judicious prun
lug and follow this with ger.erous til
lage of the soil. Only under coudit
ions like thtyo can we expect to get
the orst of returnes from the orchard
next year, under the usual Oregon

With the rainy season fully upon
us there is a tendency on the part of
cow owners, and particularly those
who keep but a small number, to be
im-gular in the time of milkiug.
There is not much to he done on the
farm and late rising is quite apt to be
the rule, and a desire to have the
chores done before darkness sets in,
causes the milkiug to be done early
in the evening. Trips to town, mi
occasional full days wor on the farm
and other causes, may make Ihe
milking hour earlier than usual in
the morning and later in the evening,
thus giving rixe to an irregularity in
the milking hour.
All really progressive dairymen
have a regular time for milking at all
seasons of the year. It does not mat.
torso much What the hour is, but it
is best to have the intervals ltween
in likings nearly equal. A short ex.
peri men t wax conducted with the
station herd nearly a year ago to de.
(ermine the effect of irregularity in
milking. Hix cows were divided
into two lots, such that the average
age of the cows, and period of lactat
ion, also total yield of milk were
prsotially the same for each lot. The
tWo lota received tbe same kind and
amount of feed, but the cows in Lot
1 were fed tnd milked regularly at
4:30 p. m. and 5:30 a. an. while those
in LiOt II were fed and milked at
hoars ranging from 5:00 lo 9:00
an. and 4;00 lo 6:00 p. to. A com par.
iann of the milk yield for three weeks
under this arrangement, with the
three Wet'ks proceeding shows (bat
tlie cows in Lot I made a gain in
yield of 5 9 ir cent, while those iu
Lot II decreased In yield 4 4 K.-r
cent. Axtun Ing that the cwws in
Lot II would have done as well as
those in Lot I if they bad had the
seise treatment, which is highly
probable, we find a loss of practically
ten pr cent in ,ne 111 ' 111 yield during
I three Weeks due to irregularity in
milking and feeding. The loss bow
ever was con lined to the milk yield
aa there was practically no change in
the quality of the milk during the
The gain in yield by Lot I wax
