"And Paul Merrill?" Inquired the at
torney for Wyatt & Co., woodenware
Phillip Wyatt, who was, In fact, the
whole firm, company nominal, shrugged
his shoulders hopelessly.
"A slow asset, as affairs have turned
out," he said, reluctant gloom In his
usual cheery, optimistic tone.
"Then he'll have to go with the
other dead Issues," pronounced the
lawyer, making a memorandum on a
sheet he had before him.
"I fear bo," sighed Wyatt. "And I'm
desperately sorry. He Is a fine young
fellow, active, honest and my family
like him. You see, he came to me n
year ago with that household mop he
had Invented. It was really clever,
for the wringing device was new and
"Has it ever sold?"
"Very well, considering that we
never pushed It. Maybe If I had put
some capital Into advertising the re
turns might have been promising, for
wherever it has been bought once
there aro repent orders and It gives
general satisfaction. After my experi
ence with Ourleton Davis, however,
I've been duly conservative. You know
he was my partner, robbed the busi
ness to the point of bankruptcy and all
I got from him was a curse aud a
threat when they Bent him to the peni
tentiary." "Well, economy and restriction Is
nil that will enable you to tide over
your present stringency," declared the
lawyer, "unless you can find someone
to advance you $10,000."
"Impossible," said Wyatt. "I have
already strained my credit to the limit.
I cai'.'t get Merrill off my mind nd
hate to lose him. You see, when he
came with mo I fancied his Inventive
genius would produce all kinds of

8o It cams about that Paul Merrill
found himself out of u position. Tho
first person he consulted about It was
Kdna Wyatt, the daughter of his em
ployer, although Mr. Wyatt never sus
pected that they were lovers.
"I hate to leuve, Edna, for It takes
me away from you," saltl Paul, as they
enjoyed a stolen meeting along the
river shore. "1 have soine new ideas
of Improvements on the nop and your
Cather'1 ull'iilr limy Improve. At ull
events, I shan't make tt definite move
until tho month Is over and see If
matters don't mend."
Kdna was anxious mid dispirited. It
was like Paul beginning business life
all over fresh, and sho was prudent
enough to know that It would be folly
to think of marrying until Paul had
something ahead. So they trletl to see
comfort in the probability that busi
ness at the plant night Improve und
Paul regain his old position,
Paul continued to drop In on tho
Wyatts once a week, as had been his
wont. Meanwhile ho passed most of
his time In his room working on the
device he hail Invented. One evening
lOtlnn was in the home garden when
u familiar whistle told her that her
lover was not far away. She strolled
bareheaded down (he street ami found
Paul nwnltlng her where a IKtle lane
ran off from the main thoroughfare.
"I don't feel manly at all," he said,
"to have you meet DM this way,
but there Is something lmportnut to
tell you, Ednn. I've hit It If I am
not mistaken, I have hit It big."
"The mop!" exclaimed Ednn, ns she
noticed n fumtllnr object propped up
ngnlnst a tree.
"Yes, Edna !" assented Paul. "See
here," mid he drew his Invention to
want hlin by tho handle, moving it
smoothly and readily.
"Why, you have put little rubber
wheels on It!" cried the Interested
Edna. "It's like a carpet sweeper."
"Don't you see that It Is the crown
ing perfection of the little device?"
asked Paul eagerly. "There Is nothing
like It on the market. I have n great
Idea about It, Edna, and I am (aklng
the midnight train for the city to
carry It out. 1 may be absent a couple
of days, bo don't worry at my absence,
only hope that a great plan which I
have In mind may succeed."
It was a new Paul Merrill who re
turned to Vlrden two evenings later.
He) carried his pet invention all
wrapped up, and his step was springy,
his eye was bright and he hummed
a happy tune as he hurried In the di
rection of the Wyatt home.
"I must get the glad news to Mr.
Wyatt, first thing," soliloquized Paul.
"He treated me square when I need
ed help and I'm going to return the
compliment. Twenty thousand dol
lars I" and he slapped the breast of
his coat. "How much It will mean, all
hands around! Hello!"
Paul halted, for he was Just passing
the plant and there was a light In the
office. He knew that for some time
past, amid his pressing business trou
bles, Mr. Wyatt had been working over
time. "The very thing, if he Is here," re
flected Paul. "Edna can know about
our rare good luck later."
Paul found the door leading Into
the dark outBlde room of the office
open. He was thoroughly familiar with
the place and started to cross the room
towards an open doorway, when he
In the main office, tied to a chair
with ropes, was his employer. Con
fronting him, brandishing a heavy
billy, was a man roughly dressed and
"Yes, It's me, Carleton Davis, your
old partner!" hissed this malevolent
knave. "You sent me to Jail, and I have
Just escaped. I swore to have revenge,
and I'm going to get It. I'm here to
beat the life out of you, here and
The menacing scoundrel made a
swing at his helpless victim. Paul was
ten feet distant. He made a rush. He
had only ns a weapon, n missile, the
sample mop. He cleared the doorway
In a nimble spring. The mop was too
bulky and unwieldy to lift to advan
tage, but, holding It in front of him, he
rushed full bent on the would-be
murderer, nnd caught him directly at
the waist. So forcible was the Impact
that it carried Dnvls across (he room
and sent him headlong through the
window, carrying the sash with him
and landing outside.
Shrieking with pain, his face and
hands gashed by the broken glnss, the
baffled knave staggered to his feet, dis
cerning that a ready aid had come to
his victim, nnd darted away In the
darkness, to be recaptured the follow
ing day nnd restored to his prison
"The mop did It, the new, Improved
mop," declared Paul excitedly. "Mr.
Wyatt, I huve sold my improved In
vention for twenty thousand dollars,
and there Is the money, sir," and the
audacious young man glowed with hon
est emotion. "Please tell Miss Edna.
She will be glad to know that I have
succeeded In what I undertook."
"Ah !" murmured Mr. Wyatt thought
fully, "she has been a co-consplrator,
"She Is the inspiration of my life,"
declared Paul tumultuously, "nnd I
hope you won't object."
So the cut was out of the bag, and
Paul Merrill eligible for a partner
ship. The "slow asset" had saved the
day and contentment and happiness
was the result for all concerned.

For Removing Rust.
For removing rust from u deeply
corroded Iron plate, a more effective
method than hammering, or even the
sand blast, Is claimed by the consoli
dated gold fields laboratory, South Af
rica. A slightly moistened mixture of
two parts of tlnely crushed sodium bl
sulphate and one part of common salt
Is applied, and may be left until all
rust Is actt'tl on, or the action may be
hastened by renewed applications ev
ery two or three hours, with wire
brush scrubhlngs before each. Clean
ing is usually complete within 24
hours, when nn alkaline washing aud

GROWING SWEET CORN
PLANT 80ME VARIETY AT 8HORT
INTERVALS UP TO AUGUST.
Quality Very Rapidly After Be.
Inn Picked Does Best In Fertile
Soil, But Adapts Itself to All
Sweet corn should always be found
In the home garden when space al
lows, since It loses quality very rap
Idly after being picked. Its sugar
changes Into starch, so that to have It
at Its best It should be on the fire
within 16 minutes after being palled
from the stalk.
Corn does best In a fertile soil, bat
Is able to adapt Itself to all textures
from sand to clay. To grow It In suf
ficient quantities for the average fam
ily requires more space, however,
than for most garden vegetables. It
should not be planted until after dan

the larger growing late varieties the
distance had best be three and one
half feet. Stalks should be thinned
to stand from 15 to 18 Inches In the
row. In planting, the seed Is covered
with one or two Inches of soil. Culti
vation must be thorough, frequent and
It Is possible to use the ground oc
cupied by early corn for a fall plant
ing of such crops as spinach, turnips
and kale. Large, late varieties, how
ever, will occupy the ground for prac
tically the whole season.
For early use the yellow sweet
corns have recently become quite
popular. Of course the Oolden Ban
tam Is a well-known variety. Early
Minnesota has long been a favorite.
White Mexican is a valuable early
corn. Early Malakohf Is a very early
sort of excellent quality, which does
better In the North than In the mid
dle states, however. Early Adams Is
a variety frequently grown for mar
ket, and Its virtues are. rather those
of the market than of the table. It
Is a flint corn, not a sweet corn, but If
used during the very short period
when Its qualities are at their best, its
flavor Is good.
It Is possible to have a fairly long
season of usable corn If. three vari
eties, such as Oolden Bantam, Crosby,
and Country Gentleman ore planted
simultaneously In early spring. To
make the season continuous until
frost, however, It will be necessary to
plant some variety at Intervals of
two or three weeks up to the last of
July. Crosby Is a very good variety
for this purpose.
WAYS OF MAKING WHITEWASH
Formulas Given for Making Solution
for Outside and Inside Use Mix
Whitewash1 for outside use Slake
one bushel of quicklime In 12 gallons
of hot water, dissolve two pounds of
common salt and one pound of sul
phate of zinc In two gallons of boil
ing water and mix this with the slaked
lime, then add two gallons of skim
milk, and mix thoroughly. Spread
lightly over the surface with a broad
Whitewash for Interior painting.
Sluke n peck of quicklime with boiling
water and cover as soon as the water
Is added. Strain after slaking and put
In a gallon of suit dissolved In hot
water, a quarter of u pound of Span
ish whiting, two pounds of rice paste
and a half pound of glue, dissolved In
warm water. Mix these thoroughly,
cover and set aside for u few days to
AID NATIONAL FOOD SUPPLY
Lessen Demand for Cowpeas and Navy
Beans on Specialized Districts
by Growing Crops.
If cowpeas and navy beuns are grown
abundantly for home use nnd for the
local markets they will greatly lessen
the demnnd on the same crops grown
on a large scale in specialized dis
tricts. This will permit a larger dis
tribution to districts where the crops
are not grown nt all, will Insure a
large supply to our armies, and a
larger surplus for shipment to our al
lies. Thus people In any community
may contribute greatly to the nation
al food supply by feeding themselves
on home-grown products.
"VELVET" FROM SHEEP FLOCK

Improving Dairy Herd.
Improvement In the dairy herd lies
In better breeding, In better housing
aid In better feed In greater quantities.
BEES INCREASE FRUIT CROP
Little Honey Gatherers Carry Pollen
From One Blossom to Another
Bees will pay well for their keep in
honey, bat that is not all the good
they do. They Increase the fruit crop
by fertilizing the blossoms. If there
were no bees nor similar insects there
would be little fruit. The wind can
not be depended on to do the necessary
work of carrying the pollen (that yel
low powder) from the male blossoms
to the female blossoms. Most of this
work Is done by the bees In their trips
from blossom to blossom.
Weather at the time the orchard
blooms has much to do with the size
of the crop. If it Is wet, cloudy and
cold, the bees cannot work as they
will when It Is clear and warm. Con
sequently fewer blossoms are fertil
ized and there Is less fruit.
You may have noticed that some
times one side of an apple tree will
be set heavily with fruit, while there
will be little or none on the other
side. This Is often caused by strong,
cold winds that prevent the bees
from working on the exposed side of
SAVE ALL BREEDING ANIMALS
Department of Agriculture Urges
Farmers Not to Be Tempted With
Present High Prices.
"Don't sell your breeding animals
nnless you can replace them immedi
ately with better ones," Is the mes
sage the United States department of
agriculture Is sending to farmers and
stockmen everywhere. Don't let the
temptation of high prices now being
offered for live stock or undue fear of
the prices asked for many popular
feeds mislead you Into selling a cow
or sow that will drop the golden calf
or litter. Such near-sighted profit
taking or lack of courage, if wide
spread, would strike at the founda
tion of the country's live stock Indus
try nnd cripple tt for years to come.
As there Is a shortage of meat animals
throughout the world, we cannot hope
to Import new breeding stock to re
place those we foolishly have killed
off. Our own breeding animals, there
fore, mast be regarded as the seed
essential to the domestic meat supply
of the nation.
RAKE FOR GATHERING BRUSH

CARE OF HARNESS ESSENTIAL
Horses Never Look Their Full Value In
Shabby, Patched-Up Affair Prices
The harness has a lot to do with
the appearance of a team. The ani
mals never look their full value lh a
shabby, patched-up affair, while, on
the other hand, the veriest plugs are
vastly Improved In nppenrance by a
bright, well-kept harness.
But that isn't all. With tho high
mid rising cost of leather cure of the
harness is wise economy. Harness
that is never cleaned and oiled soon
stiffens up and goes to pieces. The
sewing breaks, the buckles rust end
the leather loses its life.
An occasional clcanlug and scrub
bing with warm watur nnd good soap,
followed by a thorough oiling with
nentsfoot oil, when the leather has
pretty well dried, will add years to
the life of a harness.
LIMESTONE TO KILL SORREL
Quicklime Can Be Used to Advantage
by Slaking With Water and Ap
plying to Plants.
The usual advice for the control of
sheep sorrel Is to apply ground lime
stone, 2 tons per acre, hydrutt-d lime
ltt tons per acre, or quicklime 1 ton
per acre. The quicklime can be used
to advantage by slaking with water
and sprinkling the mixture freely over
the sorrel. The liquid will injure the
leaves of the sorrel as well as help
correct the soil acidity.

Food Is Just as Important as fans

garden will help. Every boy or girl
who grows a garden will ho doing
their share in winning the war Just as
truly as the man who goes to the
