James Graham had come to the sub

month of August, and hung out his

It was almost the first week of their
coming, when they caught sight of
Miss Minnie Sherman of the "Cedar

out of town, but it was some time be

rivals in that case. It was by design
that Sommers called at the house and
made some ercuseabout an old deed.
He talked with the father and he chat
ted with the daughter, and he made up
his mind that he would win her.
Young Graham came later, and there
was no design about it. He was out in
his auto, with which he was not very
well acquainted, and It went "dead"
before, the gate of the manor house.
When he had tinkered with it for about
ten minutes, Miss Minnie came out to
the gate to lend her assistance. There
is a bond between autoists that makes
them do this, and not always wait for

was all right again, and, though but
few words bad passed, there was a

By and by both young lawyers were
callers at the house. When this state
of affairs had been going on for three
months, Mr. Sommers admitted to him himself

object, and it provoked and Irritated
One spring day, when Miss Minnie
was driving her auto over a country
road, she had the misfortune to run:
over and kill a black hog belonging to
a farmer. This farmer was known far
and wide for his hatred of autoists,
and their vehicles. He came out of his
house at the hog's last squeal, and he
came with furious language. He was
interrupted by the statement that the
full value of the hog should be paid.
but when it came down to that he
wanted about five times as much as
the porker was worth. He was told to
sue for it, and he went off and sued.
That is, he came tramping into the law
office of Mr. Sommers and demanded
his legal rights.
The lawyer took the case. He wanted
to get even not only with the girl, but
with young Graham, who would be
employed to defend the case, if any
one was. x He could defend himself to
the girl by saying that a lawyer must
take a case when it is offered him.
By a strange plan of Providence,
young Graham went riding on the
same day. By a still stranger plan, he
ran over a black hog. The fatal acci accidents

they were both black hogs. When he
knew he had killed a hog, young Gra Graham

Minnie Sherman had been summoned
into court. He heard of it by her call calling

who owned the hog that he' had killed

When the suit came off and the law lawyer

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war. time may be denned as the
' buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And, if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.

IDEAS CURIOUS AND POETIC
Remarkable Beliefs That Have Been
Firmly Ingrained Into the Chil Children
dren Children of 81am.
Mr. Ernest Young, who went to Slam
to organize the educational system,
related at London recently some cu curious
rious curious beliefs held by the children there.
He explained that he had experienced
considerable difficulty in teaching them
the rudiments of science, They be
lieved that the earth was flat because
the priest had told them so.' It was
also the impression of these children
that a big crab went down into the
sea and made' the tide flow, and when
the crab came up for fresh air the
tide ebbed. When the gods became
nngry rolling thunder was heard, and
when the angels got sporty and struck
fire out of bricks, summer lightning
flashes were seen. When many angels
got into the bath at the same time
water ran over the side and it rained.
Directly Mr. Young entered a school
the children prostrated themselves be
fore him, and the only way they could
be Induced to abandon this practice
was to tell them that English children
did not do that. They would do any
thing English, children were said to
do. They were awful liars, but jwhen
told that the English boy was truthful
they gave up the habit.

For a moment there was silence,

pointed at two figures crossing a near nearby

the girl and their faces were radiant.

"Will you mall a letter for me, on

It was dusk in the field by the old
